    Summary

    We ate young pheasant cooked in the bowl of a melon, sweet braised carp with snow pickles, steamed fish cakes that melted on the tongue, crispy duck skin cut in petals and folded into blossoms. We drank wine as clear and cold as a mountain spring, and as ever-running. And someone said, into the warm, close air, "Tell us a story of the Yiling Patriarch!"
     

    Yunmeng Jiang celebrates the initiation of a new group of disciples.

    Gorgeously written, from description to dialogue, with an unbelievably mastery of themes and narrative echoes.

    Summary

    Huaisang sticks his tongue out at Mingjue. “I bet you’re just mad because you talked to Xichen-ge and he brutally rejected you, again.”

    “Okay, first of all, I was never ‘brutally rejected,’ I was turned down very gently and we were still friends until I graduated,” Mingjue says, ignoring Huaisang’s obvious eyeroll. “Second, we spoke for like two minutes and half of it was about you. He says hello, by the way. Third, even if I were still interested in him, which I’m not, he isn’t interested in me. He said we should ‘get coffee sometime’ and gave me his business card.”

    “Ouch,” Huaisang says with a wince. “Like, his personal card or the one from the hospital?”

    “The one from the hospital.” Mingjue pulls it out of his pocket to show his brother. “It’s a very nice, impersonal card.”

    So what if Nie Mingjue has been a little in love with his childhood best friend, Lan Xichen, for the better part of two decades? That's his business -- not his brother's, not his very few friends', and definitely not Lan Xichen's.

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian has certainly hoped so ardently in his two lifetimes, for so many different things, in so many different ways, that he could have summoned the demon to his front door with his bare hands. His eyes wander to Lan Zhan, settle on the back of his head, the blue-black curtain of his hair. Oh, how he has hoped.

    Summary

    It’s a really unfortunate thing, developing a crush on your husband. Wei Ying had assumed this would be easy. Lan Zhan had been so icy and unpleasant to him, it had never occurred to him that he might end up spending the next however many years with this dumb, burning feeling in his chest whenever he looks at him.

    “Okay,” says Wei Ying. “But tell me if I…if the pretending gets to be too hard, okay?”

    “It will not,” says Lan Zhan, quietly certain.
