    Summary

    In which Jingyi is a little oblivious, Sizhui is patient (and should have said something in the beginning), and everyone else is resigned to watching them dance around each other for far longer than necessary.

    (Or: five things Sizhui tries to do in his courtship, and the one time Jingyi realizes there was one happening in the first place.)

    Summary

    Major character death is Wei Wuxian's canonical death.

    From a (paraphrased) prompt on angstymdzsthoughts.tumblr.com that the blog's runner said they would like to see expanded:

    Four years after the Yiling Patriarch met his end, the Jin clan discovers that the sole remaining Wen was taken in by Lan Wangji, and demand that the child be handed over to face "justice." Lan Zhan was sure his family and clan loved his son, was sure that they would never hold a child responsible for the crimes--real or imagined--of his clan. He was sure his brother would never allow it, sure he would never allow Lan Zhan's son, his nephew to suffer for something that was not his fault. He was sure his brother would never betray righteousness for intersect politics.

    He was wrong.

    Forced to flee his sect like a thief in the night for the sake of his son--Wei Ying's son, their son--Lan Zhan must now find a way to survive and raise A-Yuan on his own. He is determined to find a way. Their son will be protected. Their son will grow up safe and happy. Even if Wei Ying never heard it, never knew, Lan Zhan made a promise the day he found A-Yuan in the Burial Mounds. If it is the last thing he does, he will keep it.

    Summary

    Uncle's jaw works in the way that suggests he's about to say something irredeemable. Jin Ling, in a move of diplomacy he hopes the Chief Cultivator appreciates, distracts him with spicy food and his favourite subject: the incompetence of his own officials.

    "I hear the lakes in the south east are having drainage problems?" he asks nonchalantly, sticking three big slices of braised pork belly into his Uncle's bowl.

    Jin Ling just wants to get through the Discussion Conference with his Sect, his dignity, and his heart intact.

    Summary

    He can’t get Jin Guangyao’s words out of his head.

    If he’d only believed in Wei Wuxian, if he’d only been willing to stand up for him, could it all have been avoided?

    I adore how JC is portrayed here. Self-assured, determined .... and I can't wait to see how his 37-year-old mind and foreknowledge deal with the problems of the painful past. <3

    Summary

    Framed by the soft morning light, sleek hair swept back and pale blue robes not even slightly rumpled, he looks almost inhuman.

    He looks like the last person who should be knocking on Wei Wuxian’s door.

    In which Wei Wuxian is a curse worker secretly searching for a lost dragon, Lan Wangji is his new assistant, and the two things may not be entirely unrelated.
