Shen Wei brings one hand up and starts petting at Zhao Yunlan’s face, nearly poking him in the eye. Zhao Yunlan gets out his phone and shines the torch on him. Shen Wei yelps and tries to cover his eyes, knocking the phone out of Zhao Yunlan’s hand in the process. It hits the ground, clattering against something hard, and the light goes out. “Sorry,” Shen Wei says sheepishly.
A suspicion begins to dawn. “Fuck, are you drunk?”
Another one of these delightful AU vids, meshing various roles into the story of two guys involved in a roleplaying game who end up meeting in real life. So much fun! (But how the heck do I tag this… *g*)
If it gives him a weird twist in his belly, to think about Shen Wei looking at someone else the way he looks at Zhao Yunlan—to imagine him ducking his head when their eyes meet, the smile curving at the edges of his lips, that he can’t hide for all his control—jealousy’s an ugly emotion, as they say. And not one Zhao Yunlan is used to.
But this isn’t jealousy, not really—it’s anger. It’s righteous fury at whoever took a heart like Shen Wei’s—noble and compassionate, devoted and kind—so, so kind—whoever it was, who took a treasure that precious, and tossed it aside.
Mature, missing scenes. This is an absolute gem, taking a deep and insightful look at Zhao Yunlan’s time in the past and his relationship with Shen Wei. Breathtakingly beautiful, it takes its time to develop what the show only alludes to.
“Head Boy Shen! Head Boy Shen! Did you see me catch the Snitch?” Zhao Yunlan was glowing with victory, sweaty with exertion and incandescent with joy. Shen Wei dusted his robes off as he rose from the bleachers, gathered his parchment, straightened his tie and nodded.
“Yes,” Shen Wei says, biting his lips, and he looks at Zhao Yunlan’s mouth again. Zhao Yunlan lets out a shaky laugh, and he can’t help but stare at Shen Wei in return, captivated – because he can’t get used to this, can he, a young Shen Wei, whose cheeks are flushed, whose dark eyes are dancing, yet it’s still undoubtedly him.
Teen. Zhao Yunlan’s thoughts as he deals with a young Shen Wei. This is perfect – the inevitability of their coming together, the unavoidable sadness looming… Yet Zhao Yunlan can’t help it, doesn’t want to, giving me goosebumps in the process.
