Eclipsed Hearts: A Teyvat Eclipse — Genshin Impact fanfiction

Between Xiao and Lumine as romantic.

Chapter One: The Omen of Dusk

Underneath the vast canvas of the deepening twilight, Teyvat stood eerily silent. In Liyue Harbor, the bustling cityscape had fallen into subdued whispers, its inhabitants gazing upwards as the sun began its rare dance with the moon. The celestial ballet was poised to cast an ethereal gloom over the land—a phenomenon not seen for centuries: the eclipse that whispered of legends and omens.

At the highest peak of Jueyun Karst, Xiao stood motionless, his gaze fixed on the dimming horizon. The vigilant Yaksha had felt a prickling sensation since dawn, an unease creeping into the marrow of his bones, a warning from the ancients or perhaps the uneasiness of the present time. This was the hour the prophecy spoke of—a time where darkness threatened to bleed through the seams of their world, and a guardian’s vigil was all that stood between order and chaos.

Meanwhile, Lumine treaded lightly through the quiet woodlands, her steps soundless amidst the rustling leaves. Echoes of her brother's laughter, a relic of her memory, spurred her onward as she searched for clues and constellations that might lead to their reunion. The peculiar hush of the woods was not lost on her; it was as though the very air held its breath in anticipation of the eclipse's apex. Her hand instinctively felt for the sword at her side, a companion in her long and lonely quest.

As the skies melded into a muted symphony of eerie twilight, Xiao’s senses sharpened. There was an undercurrent of something dark unfurling; it was tangible in the wind and the muted whispers of the spirits. Duty demanded his attention, yet it was an unusual spark of energy that guided his steps away from his vigil, down from the high peaks toward the woodland’s edge.

Lumine felt it too—a pull toward an unseen force, a kinship beyond the borders of worlds that wound its way into the fibers of her being. With cautious eyes and a curious heart, she followed the threads of this sensation into a clearing where destiny had decreed an encounter that would shift the tide of her journey. It was here, under the fading light of the obscured sun, where the Yaksha and the traveler’s paths converged.

They stood, a mere breath apart, two souls woven by the threads of an impending eclipse. Their meeting was silent, a mutual recognition of warriors who had faced their own battles and emerged scarred yet undefeated. The air crackled with an unseen energy, a bond forming in the silence between heartbeats as the moon's shadow whispered across the land, sealing their fates with its ghostly embrace.

The world held its breath, and in the stillness, Lumine spoke, her voice a beacon in the gathering shadow. "You can feel it too, can't you? The darkness that rides on the tail of the eclipse."

Xiao’s response was a nod, his amber eyes reflecting a resolved determination. "It's not just an eclipse; it's a harbinger." His voice, normally an unwavering bastion, held a tinge of something else—caution, perhaps, or an acknowledgment of the connection that now tethered their destinies.

As dusk tightened its hold, the unrest beneath the surface of Teyvat began to stir. Through the veiled light, the two stood side by side, an unlikely duo brought together by the call of an ancient omen and a force neither could have anticipated. With silent agreement, they set off into the darkened wood, where the first threads of battle were waiting to be unravelled.

This was the beginning of their tale—a story etched in the stars and marked by the shadow of the eclipse, where the fate of Teyvat rested in the hands of a guardian unremitting in his duty and a traveler far from home, bound together in a fight against the encroaching dusk.
