  1. Summary

    LanLan AU set in the criminal underworld of Shanghai, in the first half of the 20th century.

     

    Pulse of the great city,
    surge of life,
    beating, panting, roaring,
    spurting, flying, leaping,
    the whole sky covered with a pall of smoke:
    my heart is ready to leap from my mouth.
    Hills, roofs, surge on,
    wave after wave they well up before me.
    Symphony of myriad sounds,
    marriage of man and Nature.
    The curve of the bay might be Cupid's bow,
    man's life his arrow, shot over the sea.
    Dark and misty coastline, steamers at anchor,
    steamers in motion, steamers unnumbered,
    funnel upon funnel bearing its black peony.
    Ah! Emblem of the Twentieth Century!
    Stern mother of modern civilization!

    --"Panorama from Fudetate Yama," Guo Moruo (trans. Jong Lester and A.C. Barnes)

    Summary

    “I know you’re awake.”

    Lin Chen cracks one eye open and glares up at the commander of the imperial guards, rudely interrupting his mid-morning nap. It’s sunny outside. Lying on the ground is quite comfortable, even with all the snow.

    “I’m trying to sleep,” he says, and frowns when Meng Zhi lifts a dubious eyebrow at him.

    “What you’re doing is alarm the entire household, Xiao-Shu included.”
