    Summary

    The child is starting to disappear into the distance now, the smog suddenly having risen up without him noticing. Even so, Lan Zhan recognizes the child’s smile, his head turned over his shoulder. The shiny black of the tiny bicycle, red tassels flying from the handlebars.

    “I win!” Tinkling laughter bursts through the hypnotic background rumble of morning traffic. The smog twists, suddenly thick. From the other end of the driveway, a high voice echoes. “A-Zhaaan!”

    --

    Sixteen years after leaving China and the insular cultivation world behind, Lan Zhan returns to Beijing. As he struggles to reconcile his place in this city where he used to belong, he finds himself haunted by a familiar ghost.

    Summary

    “You’ve got a fever,” Wei Wuxian says soothingly. “You just keep still as well as you can. We’ll have you fixed up soon.”

    Lan Sizhui recognizes his tone—this is the voice that Wei Wuxian uses on hurt people and young children, a very calm and no-nonsense voice that has none of the mischief and cheer of the way he sounds the rest of the time. Lan Sizhui looks up and meets his eyes, and they are dark, stormy gray, muddled and concerned.

    “I’m all right,” he croaks.

    “Hush,” Wei Wuxian says, in a low croon, like someone quieting a baby. Then he blinks, and looks away, awkward. “I mean—you shouldn’t speak. You’re tired. Rest if you need to.”

    lan sizhui gets sick on a night hunt. wei wuxian comforts him. they both have a lot of feelings about it.

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian wakes up.

    That would be strange enough on its own, seeing as he's been dead for years, but stranger still is that the person who so rudely summoned him into an earthly form was a woman—and now, that woman's body is his, too.

    Summary

    When the Wen Empire launches a bloody campaign to extend the reaches of its borders, their first target is the Kingdom of Gusu. Between the might of Emperor Wen’s army, the leadership of his two biological sons, and the dark, unorthodox powers of his adopted son, Wei Wuxian a.k.a. The Yiling Demon, Gusu is quickly crushed. 

    As the spoils of war are divided and the surviving Lan disciples are taken as slaves and prisoners, Wei Wuxian shocks the cultivation world by claiming his first and only war prize: the young enemy prince, Lan Wangji. 

    Both men soon learn that the distinctions between cruelty and kindness, good and evil, and love and hate are hazy and thin — especially when two souls like theirs are fated to meet.
