    Summary

    Once upon a time there were two immortals who lived on a tall, secluded mountain. Their home sat at its crowning point, a little house of stone and ice, only seen by a handful of souls who ever wandered up its path. A faithful pair, the immortals were content to have only one another for company – two halves of the same soul, sworn to stand side by side through any number of threats. Over the span of their infinite lives, they faced many foes and weathered many storms, but, before long, they came to realise there was an enemy they could never hope to conquer – time.

    Or: Wen Kexing asks Zhou Zishu to tell him a story, for once. He complies.

    Summary

    Lan Xichen said, “Time for regrowth and mourning is, of course, the most important. But there has also been a—frequent—discussion of marriage.” He paused to drink more tea. He almost seemed apologetic when he added, “Your name has been brought up often.”

    “For marriage,” Lan Wangji repeated.

    Except with Wei Ying in the picture, nothing goes exactly as planned.

    Summary

    Chengling lets out an anguished cry and presses his palms to his eyes. Why won’t he wake up?

    “Chengling,” his master says, voice impossibly gentle, and Chengling feels like he’s been stabbed in the heart, over and over again. He could stay here, and never wake up from this torturous dream, if it meant that he could hear his master say his name again.

    A year later: the master who rode away to die and the disciple he left behind. The master, alive. The disciple? Decidedly less so.

    Or: Chengling, after.
