    Summary

    _____

     
     “Lan Wangji,” he whispers. The name tastes like tears on his tongue. Like nicotine. “I’m sorry.”

    “Do not apologize.” Lan Wangji hasn’t moved. He’s standing, tall and broad-shouldered and beautiful, watching his stupid neighbor drink his expensive tea on his luxurious white leather couch like this is the most normal thing in the world.

    It isn’t. Why is he acting like it is?

    “I’m such an idiot.” Wei Ying wants to laugh. He’s afraid he’ll choke if he tries. He covers his mouth with his hand, presses his fingers into his cheeks, hard, like that will stop him from talking. It doesn’t. He’s pathetic. He can’t help it. God. “I didn’t mean to do this. I’m so sorry.”

    “It is alright, Wei Ying,” Lan Wangji says. “This is not burdensome for me, if that’s what you’re worried about. It’s not.”

    Wei Ying swallows.

    “Don’t lie to me,” he whispers. No. Fuck. He can’t cry. He didn’t cry that time and he won’t cry now, he won’t. “Please don’t fucking lie to me, I can’t stand it, I’m so tired of people lying to me. I’m sick of it.”

    Summary

    At home, Lan Wangji steels himself before taking off his shirt to investigate the problem on his arm. He isn’t sure which will be worse— to peel away his sleeve and find something horrific, or find nothing at all out of the ordinary.

    Still, the only way to know is to take action, so he shoves his anxious uncertainty down into his golden core to burn away into nothing and unbuttons his shirt. Out come the cuff links, set gently back into their case. Finally, he tugs his arms out of their sleeves and, not yet looking at his arm, puts the shirt into its appropriate color-sorted laundry bin.

    At last, he lets his gaze move to the back of his left forearm. His breath catches in his throat. The fingers of his right hand move, shaking just slightly, to skim at the half inch spot about halfway between his elbow and wrist.

    Hard to the touch, there is a patch of cool white stone on his skin. More accurately, perhaps, there is a patch of his skin that has transmutated into, if he had to hazard a guess, white jade.

    OR

    In which Lan Wangji is slowly turning into jade and turns to local curse-breaking expert Wei Wuxian for help.

    Summary

    Nie Mingjue arranges for Meng Yao to stay at Cloud Recesses for the lectures.

    Meng Yao looked away, trying to figure out the words to convey how confused he was by the last few weeks of events. But then, he thought, this was like Nie Mingjue in temperament. He still vividly remembered the day he had gone from ‘carrying water for ungrateful assholes’ to ‘vice-general’ in the space of two minutes.

    Looking somewhat amused, Lan Xichen said, “I’ve found over the years that Mingjue-xiong will occasionally make an assumption or a decision and then act on it, forgetting that the rest of us aren’t mind-readers, and if he doesn’t tell us what he’s doing, we won’t know.”

     

    Featuring: WWX as a chaos gremlin, NHS matchmaking, MY befuddled by praise, JZX being mocked for his uselessness, JC who is Not With These Idiots, and LQR grateful to have at least ONE student actually interested in learning.
