Realizing they’re in love
Characters: Albedo, Bennett, Chongyun, Cyno, Dainsleif, Diluc, Gorou, Kaeya, Kazuha, Razor, Scaramouche, Tartaglia, Thoma, Venti, Xiao, Xingqiu, Zhongli
Albedo knows he’s in love with you when he gets a lack of sleep because he’s up all night thinking about you and when he can’t focus in the day because he’s too busy daydreaming about you. His thoughts are mainly about you and he doesn’t mind it one bit. He doesn’t feel like it gets in the way of his research at all. Maybe sometimes he gets distracted by thoughts of you, but it just makes him feel good. His stomach is filled with butterflies when he’s around you, his chest feels warm at the thought of you, and his heart beats against his chest even at the first letter of your name. It’s more than enough for him to be able to connect the dots.
Bennett becomes aware of his feelings when he starts to look at his bad luck as good luck. The stupid situations it leads him to always gets your attention and it makes him feel happy to know that you care about him. His luck can’t be that bad if it makes him so happy to have your gaze on him. He can’t help but laugh off his injuries when he’s around you, because they’re really not that bad if it means you’re worrying for him.
Chongyun realizes his feelings when his excessive yang energy affects him around you no matter what he does to try to control it. He finds himself getting flustered very easily, a blush often on his face when he’s around you. He gets hotter than usual, even in cold weather. He’s aware that he’s susceptible to heat or strong emotions, but he’s sure that his yang energy is affecting him so much because he’s in love.
Cyno’s aware of his feelings once they appear. He notices that he would much rather be spending his time with you than learning. He’d rather be by you than anywhere else, he’d rather be spending his days with you than with anybody else. He’s confident that his feelings for you are love and he’s glad to be in love with you. If he couldn’t be with you, he’d rather be alone. If he didn’t know you, he’d rather not know anything at all.
Dainsleif becomes aware of his feelings for you when you become his priority. He has been after the Abyss Order for so long, but now every time he fights them he just longs to get back to you. He’d rather be spending his time with you, but he will not stop his journey. Still, it’s enough to let him know that he has fallen for you.
Diluc knows he’s in love when he messes up a simple order, too busy having his gaze on you. His cheeks flush in embarrassment when your eyes look at the scene the customer is making by saying they got the wrong drink. It wouldn’t be a scene if it was anybody else, but Diluc never gets it wrong. He immediately gets them a new drink, but his heart is beating in his chest knowing you just witnessed that. Somehow getting embarrassed in front of you is worse than just getting embarrassed and that’s how he’s sure that he has feelings for you. He doesn’t want to look bad in front of you and if he does, he only wishes that he’s still accepted by you.
Gorou realizes he’s in love when he’s on the battlefield, when he thinks about how he wants to get back in one piece for you, that he wants to do whatever he can to keep you safe. He fights for the resistance, yes, but he has also begun to fight to better the world for you. Your existence inspires him to continue fighting, to continue living. He knows that he’s in love with you when you become what he’s fighting for.
Kaeya becomes aware of his feelings for you when Jean points out that he hasn’t been as flirtatious with others. He denies it at first, because he’s been flirting with you constantly, then it hits him that he’s been only saving his sweet words for you. He smiles upon the realization, agreeing with Jean that he has been less flirtatious. He’s happy about it, he’s content with his feelings and how they’re changing him. He’d rather keep his honey lined words for you than use them on somebody else.
Kazuha learns of his feelings for you when suddenly you become home to him. For the longest time, Kazuha didn’t have a place that he’d consider to be home. He’d have places he’d stay at for periods of time, but they didn’t hold much importance to him. When he noticed how at peace he felt in your presence, he was sure he was in love. Home for him was by your side.
Razor only begins to realize that he’s in love when Lisa explains it to him. He had begun asking her more and more questions about normal human interaction, how to properly interact with you specifically. Lisa takes her time explaining what his feelings might be, but tells him that she can’t know for sure, only he can. Razor’s sure that she’s right, love seems to be the perfect word for how he feels for you.
Scaramouche realizes he’s in love when he notices that he is worried about hurting your feelings. He’s double-faced, pretending to be kind around others when it benefited him. Otherwise he was blunt and honestly, a bit cruel. He finds his fake kindness becoming genuine around you. He doesn’t want to make you feel bad, he doesn’t want to be cruel to you. His worries are how he knows he’s in love. It makes him feel a bit weak, but he doesn’t exactly dislike it.
Tartaglia becomes aware of how he loves you when he begins to feel lonely without you. He finds himself wishing that instead of eating alone or with other people, he could be eating with you. Without you, things feel dull. He misses being in your presence, hearing your laugh and seeing your smile. He realizes how in love he’s with you, your personality, your appearance, your everything.
Thoma realizes that he’s in love with you when he gets tired of seeing other people in love, just wishing he could have that with you. He sees people on dates and all he could think of is all the dates he wants to take you on. He sees people hold hands and he can only think of how he wants to intertwine his fingers with yours.
Venti knows he’s in love when he starts making ballads with you in his thoughts. The way he imagines being able to recite them to you one day makes him anxious, both nervous and excited for the day he’ll get up the courage to do so. Usually he’s so much more confident and his hesitation is enough to make him aware of his feelings.
Xiao realizes his feelings when somebody points out a smile on his face. He notices that he has been smiling a lot more when he sees you, at the thought of you, or simply at your name. He realizes he adores every little thing you do, no matter what it is. You make him happy and he doesn’t quite understand it at first, but he learns. He becomes more and more aware of how much he loves you.
Xingqiu knows he’s in love with you when you become his inspiration. He finds himself writing love stories with a character similar to you as one of the main characters. At first he tries to stop doing so, but eventually he gives in and continues to write. It becomes stories of his feelings for you, stories that nobody else will ever read. He wants to write his own personal love story with you.
Zhongli realizes that he’s in love with you when he can’t think of the answer to something he knows. He had been too busy thinking of you that he can’t break out of it when he’s asked a question by somebody else. He apologizes to the person, saying that he was lost in thought and he can’t quite remember at the moment, but he’ll let them know when he does. He’s far too distracted by the realization that he has feelings for you to think of the answer.

Some Interesting off-game character interactions in Genshin
These are all based on their in voice lines which can be found in the game or here!:
Barbara and Venti are friends! despite what happened to the holy lyre. Barbara comments that Venti has a really amazing voice while Venti says her voice is really sweet. Implying they either sang together or watched each other perform!
Xiangling used to be part of Beidou's crew! Beidou and her crew often misses Xiangling's cooking while Xiangling has nothing but admiration for Beidou. Beidou often gets her fresh seafood ingredients which she experiments on
Razor is a student of Lisa! Lisa thought him how to control his vision and seem to be quite fond of him. They often do combat practice together even though Lisa doesn't like doing work she puts effort on teaching razor
Chungyun doesn't like Xiao that much even though he respects him a lot for what he has done for Liyue. Xiao's attitude towards mortals puts him off. This also implies that chungyun has at least have either met him or knew him through someone else that had direct contact
Apparently, a lot of characters have a bad impression of Ningguang, most notably xiangling, xingqui, and keqing. Beidou seems to have a negative impression of her as well but doesn't really care. This makes her the most disliked playable character in game so far
A lot of Knights of Favonius members seems to either be smitten or respect (or both) a future playable character named Albedo (the head alchemist of the knights.) Kaeya and Lisa remarks that he is quite good looking while the rest respects him a lot (Klee remarks that he is her friend). Venti is wary of him though
The character with the most voiced lines about them is Jean! Jean is the most respected character in Mondstadt while Zhongli in Liyue. Funnily enough, characters who have lines about Jean have met her while characters who have lines about Zhongli haven't or me him at least once
Xiao is the only character who is mentioned by Qiqi in memory format. Since Qiqi has no memories of her previous life and have trouble remembering things for a long time (even the face of her caretake), this may imply that Xiao might have left a strong impression on Qiqi before she died.
Venti and Mona know each other! Venti remarks that both have similarities of having jobs that would make a person poor (bard & Fortunetelling). Mona doesn't dare to read fortune abouts Venti due to a previous incident
Additional: Mona asks the traveler where Paimon comes from and says: I cannot seem to discern a single shred of information regarding this floating fairy's fate meaning that Paimon most likely isnt from Teyvat
Noelle loves spending time with Barbara and vice versa! They have tea breaks together sometimes, Barbara usually hums/writes songs while Noelle makes snacks for them. Barbara comments that Noelle is just the cutest!
Diluc has the most “bad impressions” in mondstadt due to his status of being an ex knight which put a lot of strain on his relationship with most of the characters. Though Barbara thought Diluc might have disliked her performance due to him frowning at her one time
Kaeya is probably the character with the most suspicion directed at. While he is praised and respected for the skill as a knight, characters like Diluc (obv), Amber and Sucrose are wary of him because of how he acts
Varka, The grand master of mondstadt seems to be respected a lot by the knights, most notably Jean and Kaeya. Diluc on the other hand seems to dislike him a lot and hinted to be one of the reasons why he left. He was also the one who gave Razor his name
Xiangling, Chongyun and Xinqui are the only 3 characters that all have each other in their own voice lines with a positive reaction. Xinqui drags Chongyun to eat with him at Xiangling's resto very often, most likely to poke fun at him for not handling spicy food well.
Barbara is really good friends with Lisa! and says that if Lisa ever becomes a star she'll support her until her voice turn hoarse.
While Ningguang is currently the most disliked PLAYABLE character the most hated character is actually someone called Hu Tao! Xiangling, Xinqui, Chongyun and Qiqi (especially) despises them for their overall attitude, pranks & jokes. Howeve Xiao seems to think that she is funny.
Ganyu, the secretary of Ningguang has a small assistant named Yaoyao who is a dendro user! Ganyu, Ningguang and Beidou dotes on her a lot (though Ningguang doesnt like to show it). Yaoyao is also a fellow chef and a junior of Xiangling!
Chongyun & Xinqui seem to have a mutual distaste for a character named Xinyan! Nothing on a personal level, it's just because she plays rock music (which disturbs Xinqui's reading) and her concerts are filled with flames (which bothers Chongyun). Xiangling likes her though!
Xinqui and Xiangling are the only characters from Liyue to have voice line for a character in Mondstadt! (For now) Though both characters are yet to be released (Albedo and Dionna). On the other side, Venti is the only one who has a voiceline for a character in Liyue (Morax). If all of Xiao’s line from the closed beta are added in canon then he would be included for his line on Venti!
