The Grand Master of Daemonic Cultivation - FayJay - 魔道祖师 - 墨香铜臭 | Módào Zǔshī - Mòxiāng Tóngxiù [Archive of Our Own]
So on Twitter I mentioned I’d love to read a daemon AU of MDZS.

And Kim said “Daemon fic - can you IMAGINE what WWX's daemon has gone through?!?!?”

And I didn’t really get it, until she added:

“I'm actually thinking more along the lines that with cultivators, daemons are linked to their golden core.


And then I burst into tears. Because how could Jiang Cheng not know his “new” daemon was Wei Wuxian’s? And how could WWX hide his own loss? And a whole new world of knives unfolded before me, so here is a window into that AU, through a series of vignettes, as posted on Twitter.

not as brave as you were at the start - Asuka Kureru (Askerian) - Bleach [Archive of Our Own]
"You know, I really do think we're a person, not a thing."

They're on the school roof, after Ichigo ditched them in his body. Nobody is around to see them, so Kai didn't bother staying a lioness. It's always hell, faking Rikuto.

Kai is a tanuki right now, round and wary, huddled against Kon's leg. Kon crouches down to gather his other half onto his lap, presses the lower part of the face he's borrowing against the fur. It could be fluffier, but it still feels nice.

They're made to fake daemons; it's one of their secondary purposes. At first soldier pills were created without, just as auxiliary body-movers to act as meat shields, but it was too disturbing for the shinigami they assisted. So then the second generation all had identical german shepherds, or maybe dobermanns, he forgets. They were green, so they wouldn't be traumatizing when they exploded into dust if the soldier pill got destroyed.

Kon and Kai's version is the best, latest, brightest.

In Kon's lap Kai is a sparrow, a field mouse, a tiny teeny shrew.

"What I mean is; I'm real."

"I think," Kai corrects themself a second later, plaintive and hurt; "I think I'm real."

Ground Fire - Chapter 1 - Asuka Kureru (Askerian) - Girl Genius (Webcomic) [Archive of Our Own]
Agatha and Ricimer knew what they saw, those men. They saw some kind of sad pheasant, some shaking game bird, without even the prettiness and elegance of any respectable cock's bright feathers. A prey animal to be hunted down and devoured.

"I don't have any money," she tried, eyes flitting around desperately.

See, the thing is no one seems to get the whole soul thing. The whole don't you dare frigging touch her thing. It's not like Peter's surprised by this, Yondu schooled good on all things daemon, it's just that you'd think after the first time he shot a guy point blank for reaching out to grab her the word would get around.

It's tough being a twenty-something witch in a modern world.

Tougher still, when everyone expects your daemon to fly away (Darcy was always more of a homebody).

“So, physics,” Darcy says when they leave the office.

“New Mexico,” Mel counters, equally dubious.

“Scientists,” she shudders.

Mel shrugs, a gesture that sits oddly on her heavy shoulders, “Can't be worse than theater majors.”

trinityofone: Fic: Dæmonology 1/2
They had always wanted to fly; John couldn’t fly; Nioke flew for him.

Since the day he was born, she’d rarely worn any other form. She was strong feathers and delicate bones, swooping, soaring, riding the wind. She was his beacon, going where he could not, as fast and as far and as high as she could until the pain called her back, called them back to each other.
