    Summary

    "Tell a story?"

    "As in narrating events that make u—"

    Lan Qiren snorted, curtly. "I know what story-telling is, boy."

    He hesitated as the Lan children looked at him expectantly. "Is there a particular moral you wish to hear?"

    "Oh, oh, yes, we both like the same." Lan Jingyi climbed to sit on his other leg. "An eye for an eye."

    For a long time, silence filled the room as fading light of the sun began setting upon the horizon.

    "Then," Lan Qiren replied, voice strangely vain. "Have you heard of the tale of the half-burnt petal?"

    Or, the fae AU I never intended to write but my friend wouldn't let me be at peace until I wrote this. I apologise on you having to bear the cross of my sins.

    Summary

    Jingyi only realizes that he’s staring when Sect Leader Jiang turns to look back at him with narrowed eyes and an annoyed expression. Jingyi gulps but can’t look away. Their eyes meet, and Jingyi panics.

    And then he realizes that he’s been pouring hot water on his boots for the past five seconds, panics more, and manages to brush the teapot, teacups, and tray crashing to the floor with the edge of his sleeve.

    Summary

    If Jiang Cheng had stayed home while his father and sister went to Lanling; if his mother had managed to stall Wang Lingjiao for just a little longer; if Wei Wuxian hadn’t stopped for barely five seconds to scoop up sixth shidi and carry him to safety…

    If any of those things had happened, maybe Wen Chao wouldn’t have given Jiang Cheng to the Core-Melting Hand.
