    Summary

    Zhou Zishu takes the pipe, checks that the ember is still alive, and sets it in his mouth. When he sucks the smoke into his mouth, he can only just barely perceive the pungent herbal scent of it, like passing someone in the street who had smoked hours before. But it feels the same as it always has, hot and dry in the back of his throat. He holds it in his lungs, offers the pipe to Wen Kexing. Exhales slowly through his nose.

    On the road to Longyuan Pavilion.

    Summary

    Sometimes, he thought, drunk with pain, the right thing to do when faced with intense emotion was to indulge it and ride the storm; to give it the full breadth of the page to rage, to experience it and honour it, not hide it away.
     
    Otherwise what was the point in being human?

    -- It was a summer that Gong Jun would always remember.

    Summary

    In one hand he’s got a knife--the kind all the students keep to sharpen their nibs and carve their names wherever it’s the most pain in the ass to sand them out--but that’s not what’s got everybody frozen, because in his other hand the poor mad kid is holding all his beads.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Reread so many times, and there’s always something more. Kindness, decency, compassion. Forgiveness, for oneself and others.

    Summary

    Jin Ling had begun to suspect years ago that there were parts of his family history that had been crossed out; long streaks of black where Wei Wuxian had been. The truth is more like whole books being brought up from their hiding places again.

    Or: Jin Ling tries to figure out what family means, now.
