    Summary

    "Betrothed," Wei Ying says indignantly.

    Lan Wangji can't stop his gaze from darting up to him. Wei Ying understands. Wei Ying is looking at him, wide-eyed and upset on his behalf.

    "And you don't even like her," Wei Ying says.

    "I don't even know her," Lan Wangji says quietly.

    "But even if you did—" Wei Ying starts.

    "I wouldn't want this," Lan Wangji finishes.

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian is fatally injured, but Lan Wangji is nothing if not stubborn.

    “If I was gone, Hanguang-Jun, what would you do?”

    He asks it on a quiet morning at the end of summer, the hum and click of insects outside whispering into the Jingshi. It’s warm once the mist burns off the Recesses, and bright with dappled sunlight.

    Lan Wangji looks at him, brow pinched. “Nothing,” he says after a moment.

    It is, he discovers three months later, the first lie Lan Wangji has ever told.

    Summary

    Suddenly, it snaps into place. The weary way Lan Zhan has been holding himself is suddenly cast in a new, much more distressing light. Somebody is responsible for it, a real live, horrible, blind, stupid person. The combination of guilt, sadness, and anger that sets in all at once is hard to contain. Lingering wisps of resentment that remain from the night-hunt flock to him, like calling to like.

    All four boys stare at him with wide eyes.

    “Wei-qianbei,” Sizhui says. “You look...um…”

    “Scary,” Zizhen breathes, beaming.

    “Who has rejected Lan Zhan?” Wei Wuxian asks.

     

    Or; during one of his visits to the Cloud Recesses, the juniors strike a blow to Wei Wuxian's certainty that his feelings for Lan Wangji are one-sided.

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian opens the letter and skims through, feeling his frown deepen with every line. “Oh. A request from Yiling. This man Tong Shen writes, 'I can’t explain what’s happening — you wouldn’t believe me if I tried. The hills are moving and they are hungry. Please send aid, Hanguang-jun, this humble one begs you.' Well, my curiosity is certainly piqued."

    A few months after the events of Guanyin Temple, Wei Wuxian and Lan Wangji take on a night hunt of an unusual sort: The Burial Mounds are spreading, quickly and with no apparent explanation. 

    In Wei Wuxian, it brings old, long-buried things bubbling to the surface.
