pairing: xue yang/xiao xingchen (mdzs/cql)

samsara / 輪迴 []

xue yang lives and dies and lives again. across thousands of lifetimes, only one thing remains constant: he wants.

the blood in your mouth []

song lan spirits xiao xingchen and a-qing out of yi city without fighting xue yang.

xue yang's not going to be left behind that easily.

blame []

“just a black coffee.”

xue yang decided he liked the guy. while a-qing was punching the order in the system, xue yang grabbed a cup and sharpie.

“should i put ‘a-chen’ on the cup?” he asked, half as a joke and half to tease a-qing.

“xiao xingchen would be fine, thanks.”

“xiao xingchen it is then.” xue yang wrote it on the cup, quickly filled it up with black coffee and handed it to him before he was even done paying.

aka the reincarnation coffee shop/university au where the more time they spend together, the more memories they get and the worst chaos ensues.

pairing: todd/black (not me)

terror in the resonance []

after the events of not me, todd tries desperately to keep control over the broken pieces of his life. black makes it worse. and then, he makes it better.

like bitter tangerines ˗ˋˏ ♡ ˎˊ˗ []

“well then, i guess we have a deal, don’t we, black?” todd gets up as the same time as black and extends his hand for black to shake, his face expectant.

as black shakes it, he wonders why it feels like he just sold himself to the devil. he gets rid of that thought in annoyance. if todd was the devil, black knows he can take him down.

or, black chooses to accept todd's help to protect his friends and gets himself involved in a marriage, a kidnapping, a successful overthrow of a person in power, a love story, a family reunion, and several death threats. not necessarily in that order.

pairing: ushijima wakatoshi/oikawa tooru (haikyuu)

this insignificant pride and prejudice ˗ˋˏ ♡ ˎˊ˗ []

oikawa tooru graduated high school with the burning desire to succeed in his college career. he'd hoped that he might include taking down his arch-nemesis along the way, but when he finds that his college team hosts an offensively familiar face, he can't help but think that the universe might be conspiring against him. after all, what could be worse than playing on the same team as ushijima?

swallowing hydrangeas []

in which tooru inherits his grandmother's garden and wakatoshi is there to help.

pairing: zuko/katara (avatar: the last airbender)

even so []

a hundred years after avatar roku stops the fire nation’s attempts to take over the world, uprisings begin again in the fire court. after the battles, the new fire lord, zuko, seeks to reaffirm old alliances and looks for a bride from the southern water tribe.

pairing: chrollo/kurapika (hunter x hunter)

flowers are blooming, just like tears []

it could be a cruel coincidence. they could have terrible timing, crying while he’s toeing the line between surviving and dying, for all he knows. but something deep inside hums with recognition, and his throat’s too dry for him to utter a single word.

the chain user can’t possibly be his soulmate.

god's plan []

“a number of the enemy were injured,” kurapika said as the car sped along on the highway. “so they’ll stay put until backup arrives.” his hands tightened around the chains restraining the spider leader.

kurapika felt the distinct watch of eyes on his skull and turned to look at the man next to him. “what are you looking at?”

for just a split second, kurapika could’ve sworn the man’s eyes widened in shock, but it quickly disappeared behind a thin facade of calm. “nothing. i just didn’t think the chain-user would be a woman.”

kurapika stopped breathing.

or alternatively: soulmate au in which your soulmate's first words to you is tattooed on your hand but kurapika really didn't need to get a mini-heart attack when he hears those words come out of the spider head's mouth.

hell is hot for a reason []

"i'm sorry."

"no, you aren't"

"i know."

once more []

they made a mistake. they left the king's body and a new queen arose. stronger than anything they had ever seen or fought. together they fought. together they lost. one wish, one more chance to change things. nanika sends a group back into the past, ten years before the rise of the second wave of chimera ants, before york shin, before the destruction of the kuruta tribe.

with memories of a life they are trying to change, kurapika, kuroro, killua and cheadle must work together to stop the chimera ants and save those who they care about the most. or die trying.

letting go []

unbelievable. it’s been months since they came back from the dark continent, and it seems like the spider head is all he can think about, now.

take it back []

i love you. the sensation of kurapika tensing up in his arms gets chrollo to realise that he actually said it out loud. "what did you just say?" kurapika asks in a wary voice. too late to back out now.

see you in hell []

kurapika has been feeling under the weather, lately. chrollo is pretty sure that he is working himself too hard. he needs to rest. plus, he's been coughing for weeks now, and even though chrollo knows it's nothing serious, it still annoys him that kurapika won't accept to see a doctor. he figured inviting his friends over for a few days would kill two birds with one stone: allow kurapika to unwind and have his med student friend examine him.

pairing: ida kousuke/aoki souta (kieta hatsukoi)

one week is long enough to dream []

ida just discovered that he had a reputation. he had never really considered what others thought about him before, so when he overheard two girls talking about him on the stairs, he was admittedly very surprised. he dropped back when he heard his name, but still couldn’t help but overhear. “he always says yes to anyone who confesses to him on monday and they date for a week. then on sunday, he politely tells them he has not fallen in love, and moves on.” the girl covered her face. “but for one week, you get to hope. ida is so wonderful.”

pairing: choi soobin/choi yeonjun (txt)

redoublement ˗ˋˏ ♡ ˎˊ˗ []

“you must have something for degradation. it’s the only way to explain how you keep begging me to humiliate you in front of everyone,” soobin’s voice was low and threatening. it didn’t help quell the strange feeling yeonjun was having. so instead of facing it, he decided to ignore it, ripping his arm out of the other’s hold.

“get out of my face,” yeonjun muttered, shoving soobin away with his shoulder. he’d show the other what it meant to be humiliated. he wouldn’t know what hit him.
