“He says,” Zhu Yilong focused on the floor, his appetite gone, “I’m not sexy enough.”
“Not sexy enough? Okay, I’m going to go hit this guy, he’s obviously an idiot,” Bai Yu burst out. “What is this role you’re not sexy enough for, anyway? That’s ridiculous!”

Locked for AO3 users, this is perfect in its bittersweetness.
Song Lan doesn’t care for any of it.
He likes his job, he likes his books, he likes his calligraphy.
He likes his solitude.
All is well.

A stunningly crafted modern AU in which all is perfect and nothing hurts.
“Well?” Yibo demands. Past the severe frown tugging at the corners of his mouth, a flicker of the old him slips through, the persistent boy who shoved his way into Xiao Zhan’s space without a second thought and made a home for himself there. “Are you coming or not?”
Xiao Zhan’s heart twists. He forcibly settles it back in his chest. He’s only told Yibo no once in his entire life, and it was already the hardest thing he’s ever had to do. “Okay,” Xiao Zhan murmurs, quiet but decisive, and thumbs his phone off. “Let’s go.”

Song Lan wondered, because even after two years in a relationship with the beautiful creature currently writhing in his arms, he still couldn’t figure it out. He had expected, quite frankly, to be dumped the moment he told Xingchen he could not have sex. He had expected to be slapped when, upon further inquiry, he revealed it was because he really couldn’t stand to be naked with Xingchen in that context.
Instead, Xingchen had surveyed his miserable expression from behind those glasses, and asked, so would you want to have sex without undressing, or are you not interested in sex at all?
Then he’d grinned, an uncharacteristically self-satisfying expression for Xiao Xingchen, when Song Lan went tellingly red.

Modern AU. This is scorchingly hot – and all without Song Lan ever taking his clothes off!
