    Summary

    Hua Cheng has wanted Dianxia for so long he doesn’t know how to survive knowing that Dianxia is his at long last. Worse still, Dianxia doesn’t seem to have any interest in consummating their relationship, leaving Hua Cheng in the midst of his greatest trial yet: keeping his lust from consuming them whole.

    But a gem cannot be polished without friction, nor a man perfected without trials - and after everything, Hua Cheng will not let this trial be the one that defeats him.

    Summary

    “The first stroke, the commitment, is always the most difficult part,” he murmurs, eyes on his paper.

    Xie Lian takes it as an invitation and steps into the room. “What about deciding which stroke is the last?”

    “My art never quite compares to my subjects, so I don’t worry myself with perfection.” With that, he puts brush to paper and inks his first stroke.

    Xie Lian needs a room for the night in a new city and is humbly directed to the one ghost who can fulfill any wish if you're willing to play.

    Summary

    “Today,” Hua Cheng announces, barging into He Xuan’s disaster of a room, really another realm fit for Eldritch monsters with the way his eyes refuse to focus entirely in the glow of He Xuan’s four million black-shaded lamps, “gege kissed me. On the cheeks. Both of them. Are you listening?”

    “I could’ve been masturbating,” says He Xuan.

    “Your dick is small enough that I wouldn’t notice, I’m sure. Like jacking off a little peanut.”

    “You—”

    Pretending to date Xie Lian is a lot like gambling. Roll on, slot machine. Roll on.

    Summary

    They don’t hang out. They’re not friends. The only time they talk is nights like these when Hua Cheng has no one else to turn to. Nights he takes a sledgehammer to rock bottom.

    Or: Hua Cheng leaves his shitty family behind, and goes to the only place he knows he's safe.

    Summary

    It’s not the first time he’s found someone beautiful — or handsome or pretty or arresting. Cao-shixiong used to look so radiant practicing his sword forms in the morning light, like a newly ascended god, and he met a young cultivator somewhere between Yong’an and Banyue whose round face and dark eyes made Xie Lian wish he had any skill at committing form to paper.

    In his centuries, Xie Lian has encountered so many beautiful people in fleeting glimpses and brief moments.

    This is the first time he’s liked someone, though.
