    Summary

    "Her Jingyan stood at the end of the room, hands loosely clasped behind him, back a strong line, eyes sweeping out over the courtyard and its minute details with a keen light. For a moment, Mei Changsu’s mind superimposed a different figure—a little more coltish, a little looser even in armor—, standing on battleground and watching the troops ready themselves. She could almost still feel the tense heat of him, right by her side."

    The Lin family's only daughter grew up to be everything they would have hoped for in a son. If it weren't for this, she might not have died at Meiling, with her father and the 70,000 soldiers of the Chiyan army. Thirteen years later, the mysterious jianghu leader Sir Mei is revealed to be a woman, tops the Lang Ya List of Beauties, comes to Jinling, and enters Prince Jing's service.

    Summary

    Meng’s messages to Jinling and Jingyan are short and carefully edited. He writes about the skirmishes that lead to battles and the battles that lead to stalemates. He writes about the snow, how it drifts in the valleys and low places, how it melts beneath the sun and freezes again during the night. He writes about his generals, his lieutenants, and his captains. He writes about his strategist.

    He writes, Mei Changsu is a skilled tactician. His insights have led to profitable battles with low casualty rates. He silently mouths to himself, He can no longer ride a horse. I don’t know how he will travel back to Jinling, and then writes, With Mei Changsu’s assistance, we will win this war quickly and with lower costs than anticipated.

    He says to himself, “Mei Changsu is the cost,” and then covers his mouth with his hand, the scales of his gauntlet pricking at his skin.

    ---

    Meng spends a cold winter caught in a war with two fronts--the Greater Yu army on one front, and a dying strategist on the other. It's basically ten thousand some-odd words of Meng-feels, Meng&Lin Shu bromance, and the slow breaking of a man's heart as he watches his best friend die.

    Summary

    “He thought we were married??” Jyn says, rubbing bacta along the knife wound on her leg. “Why would he think that?”

    Cassian wipes the blood off his forehead and shrugs. “No idea.”

    (or: six times people assume Jyn and Cassian are married)
