    Summary

    “You’re lonely, aren’t you? You miss her, don’t you?”

    A quiet moment hung between them. Childe thought Zhongli might hit him, and that wouldn’t be the worst outcome, brawling in his room. “I did not appreciate her as she deserved while she was alive,” he admitted solemnly.

    “So, pretend I’m her. Just for the night, one night, you can have her back.” Childe curled his fingers into the front of Zhongli’s shirt. He hoped he sounded self-assured, not desperate.

    --
    [post 1.1 update/ chap 1, act 3] childe couldn't have zhongli's gnosis, as he'd given it away. childe couldn't have zhongli's heart, as it belonged to another. but he could have his body, he thought, and that might be something, might be enough to satiate him for a night.

    Summary

    The first time Zhongli met him, it’s when he’s donning his true form drinking some water from a waterfall. The boy came out of nowhere. One second there was nobody, the next a boy toppled out of the bushes and rolled in front of Zhongli.

    Zhongli looked down at the boy and said, “What mortal dares taint these lands?”

    “K-K-Koschei!” the little boy yelled as he got onto his feet and nearly tripped backwards. “It’s Koschei! It’s really-”

    'Koschei?' Zhongli thought in between the screams and the sobs and the irritating pleads for mercy. He straightened himself up as he glanced down at the boy. “Koschei?” he said as much. “Who are you calling Koschei?”

    “Why you, of course, mister!” the boy yelled and then shrunk at Zhongli’s narrowed eyes. “The kids always talk about the Deathless who wanders in the forest and eats children’s souls. You’re Koschei!”

    In which Zhongli meets a peculiar boy in the woods and, inevitably, gets entangled in what his other Archon friends would call, "mortal woes".

    Summary

    1. Where do you find the balance? What do you give up, a child’s wonder and ability to reach for the stars in that brilliant night sky, or their ability to breathe at all?
    2. We are greeders, you and I. We want life, and we also want that feeling of wind in our hair, those rapid heartbeats and that immeasurable high.
    3. Let the hypocrites and sinners dream, frozen though they may be in that lake of ice.

    You taught me the courage of stars before you left / How light carries on endlessly, even after death / With shortness of breath / You explained the infinite / And how rare and beautiful it is to even exist

    In which Xiao gets a strange summons to Mondstadt, and uncovers all the secrets a perpetually drunk archon never wanted anyone to find. (Xiao gets bullied. Xiao participates in Windblume for all the wrong reasons. Xiao gets an offer to become one of the Four Winds. Xiao gets even more second hand PTSD. Xiao gets a flower crown and dances -)

    (Original prompt per Kohime was Xiaoven angst where Xiao has to eat Venti's dreams. Don't ask me how it came to this.)

    Summary

    Zhongli might as well have just straight up told Childe. He absolutely refuses to think too hard about it.

    or

    Tartaglia's accidental guide to why Zhongli is most definitely a hundred percent not Rex Lapis. There is nothing suspicious to see here.
