    Summary

    Jiang Cheng probably should have anticipated the assassination attempt. He'd spent the last three weeks in Lanling browbeating the more intractable elders into supporting Jin Ling before his nephew's first discussion conference, and he hadn't exactly been kind about it. Still, he was a cultivator-- if someone was going to try and kill him, he expected swords, or curses. Not poison in his tea.

    Summary

    He startles, glancing around. Wei Wuxian had just been right beside him. They hadn’t been speaking, after Wei Wuxian’s few abortive attempts at making conversation. Because Jiang Cheng hadn’t wanted to speak to him. He never wants to speak to him, ever again, because walking alongside Wei Wuxian, being on a night hunt with him— it’s too much. Even if he no longer wants Wei Wuxian dead, how can participate in these farces? How can he get so close to the thing he wants, only to remember he’ll never have it? He can’t let Wei Wuxian make casual conversation. He can’t allow him to weasel his way back into Jiang Cheng’s good graces, his heart. Because Jiang Cheng won’t survive it. He knows this very well.

    What starts as a simple competition during a night hunt quickly spirals out of control, leaving Jiang Cheng to confront his fears, his feelings, his inadequacies, and Wei Wuxian.

    Summary

    Three years from the end of the novel, Wei Wuxian continues to live freely, albeit quietly, resigned to keeping silent amidst continued hostility from Yunmeng Jiang, and the cultivation world at large. However, as old grievances tighten around him, threatening to ensnare him in a plot to put him to trial, he and Lan Wangji must find a way to defend his actions. Jiang Cheng turns out to be an unexpected ally. This turn of events may very well force them to confront the wrongs they have committed against each other, and apologize for past feuds.

    Alternative summary: Am I The Asshole? Yunmeng Jiang loyalists plot to have Wei Wuxian publicly labeled as The Asshole. Jiang Cheng is bewildered, seeing as he thinks that The Asshole is himself. In other news, when you’re both bad at talking about feelings, mutually unrequited forgiveness happens.
