    Summary

    Fire. Heat. Rot. Hu Tao is fast when she runs, a flurry of sparks and butterflies whirling crimson at her nimble heels. Branches strike at Qiqi's face, tearing her clothes and pulling her braid, but Hu Tao seems to flit right through them, gaining on her. She is laughing. Her laughter is an ugly, fake sound, taunting and cruel.

    To Hu Tao, this is a fun game. How Qiqi despises her.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Once, after a heavy rainfall, Qiqi was out picking glaze lilies and realized she stepped on a snail. The little shell was broken to pieces that stuck to her shoe. She had not even realized she killed something until she saw what was left of it.

    Qiqi wrote that must be how the adepti felt when they found her. A crushed snail. Utterly insignificant, but still dead, because it got too close.

    "Master Hu," said Zhongli. "You're... certain I am the father?"

    Hu Tao blinked with wide eyes. "Mister Zhongli," she said plaintively, "when have I ever lied to you?"

    "Yes," said Zhongli, "but as to our friend Paimon's hypothetical: if, at the exact moment of insemination..."

    "Paimon was just curious but Paimon is still trying to eat here and you are ruining the taste of eggs for her."

    "Comrade," said Childe, face buried in his hands. "Girlie... I know we had a... moment earlier, but..."

    "I get it," said Lumine, staring vacantly into the distance. "I'll never be able to see your face without remembering this accursed conversation."

    Summary

    Mondstadt. He rolls the name of the region over his tongue. Moon City. They have good wine. Lovely taverns. He sees a ghost missing a blue eye, who hadn’t yet realised he’s dead, and uses all that he’s learned over the past 500 years to not throw up at the sight. He drinks. He sees things that aren’t there. The bartender, a pleasant man by the name of Charles, hands him the bottle of wine he ordered in advance. Dainsleif slumps into the bench in a dark corner of the tavern, swirls his drink—’dandelion wine’, he thinks is what Charles the bartender called it—around his mouth, and thinks about Khaenri’ah.

    The fall of Khaenri'ah, and what happens before that.

    “Alright, alright,” says the first. “You really ought to slow down a little, you know? Live life a little. We’re immortal, after all. We have time.” It lifts its sword. It brings down its sword. The final tower of Khaenri’ah falls, and that’s the end of that.

    He is lucky he is the smartest, possibly oldest man in all of Liyue, or else Hu Tao would kick him to the streets.

    “So old-fashioned,” Hu Tao murmured, tapping out an update on the station ‘net to mark them as unavailable for the day while Zhongli carefully put up the sign.
