    Shockingly beautiful. Tender and visceral. Scary and warm. Hooray!

    Summary

    Shen Yuan is torn between excitement and trepidation at the idea of finally meeting his online friend. It should be fun to take the younger man under his wing and help him adapt to the big city.

    It should also be a nice escape from his dreaded family obligations.

    (Later, Shen Yuan would find out that the key word here was should.)

    Love this dynamic for them! Shen Yuan gets to be as mean as he wants (he’s just pretending after all!) and Binghe gets everything he wants (as if Shen Yuan would allow it any other way)

    Summary

    the Yi City s/m performance art AU that really, no one asked for.

    The night Xue Yang meets Xiao Xingchen is the night Xingchen wires Song Lan’s hands down onstage. Barbed metal; hovering just above his skin. A series of compass points skittering sharp across the thin flesh of his wrist, its hefty jut of bone.

    Xue Yang’s mouth waters to see the steel, glinting sunny in the smear of the projector’s beam.

    Super intense, uncomfortable, and gorgeous; well worth it. I’ll be thinking about this one for a long time.

    Summary

    Xie Lian held up the flyer, and squinted at it through the eye-holes of his mask. Beneath the words ‘Join the Selection! Be the Ghost King’s Bride!’ the sweeping eaves rendered in wobbly black ink matched the silhouette of the building in the distance. Paradise Manor. The Ghost King’s home.

    -

    ...The Princess and the Pea retelling? Set before the events of the novel. The Ghost King of Paradise Manor is selecting a bride. Xie Lian doesn't really know what he's doing there.

    Summary

    Xie Lian finds Yin Yu at the small reflecting pond behind Paradise Manor.
    "Yin Yu," he says gently, sitting next to him.
    "Your Highness."
    "Could you tell me what San Lang was like, before he found me again? How did you two meet?"
    Yin Yu looks down into the pond, watching the ripples distort his face.
    "It's a long story," he says quietly, and begins.

    Or: how Yin Yu met Hua Cheng, how the two of them met Black Water, and what Yin Yu learned about unconditional love and revenge along the way.
