    Summary

    “If you're so good, why are you still here? Why didn’t you go back with the army?” Sticky asked.

    Because Burakh said ‘stay’ that night in the Broken Heart, Daniil thought indignantly. Because Artemy Burakh is an impossible man to refuse.

     

    Daniil had lost everything. Artemy had gained more than he ever expected. They take things day by day.

    Summary

    It was luck that Lan Wangji heard of the plan to confront Wei Wuxian in the Qiongqi Path. It was instinct that had made him accompany Jin Zixuan to suppress any violence from the encounter. It was years of musical cultivation that had turned his ear to a second flute. A second flute intent on changing the course of all their lives.

    With the flute's owner in the custody of both Lan Wangji and Jin Zixuan, Wei Wuxian is called to give an account of the incident in Jinlintai, in front of the friends and family he had been hoping to reconcile with. As truths are revealed, Wei Wuxian is confined to the Burial Mounds under the protection of the Lan Clan of Gusu with Lan Wangji acting as personal guard to him and the Wens.

    Leading a simpler life, friendships are tested and strengthened, truths are spoken and feelings revealed, teaching all touched by the events that family is strongest when you build it together.

    Summary

    “Lan Luan-daifu says it looks like you’ve been undereating for months.”

    “I eat!” Wei Wuxian protests. “You watch me eat, Lan Zhan!” Why is he protesting? He knows exactly what he’s been fucking up, and Lan Zhan almost certainly has the shape of it if not the details. The words stick in his throat, fishbones to choke on, and he drinks more soup in a sullen attempt at washing them away.

    “Wei Ying,” Lan Zhan says, setting a hand on his too-wiry thigh. There’s a whole sentence in the name now, layers of meaning, and he says some of it out loud with, “What’s wrong?

    The fight goes out of Wei Wuxian. It’s finally easy to surrender: Lan Zhan knows. It’s humiliating, but he knows. “Ah, Lan Zhan,” he says quietly. “It’s… complicated.”

    Lan Zhan nods, his hand petting over Wei Wuxian’s leg in comforting arcs. “Then we can work together to fix it,” he says earnestly. “Tell me?”

    Or: Recovery is complicated.

    Summary

    Lan Zhan is having a decidedly normal week when he gets The Email. It shouldn't be important. It should be just another scam email threatening to attack Cloud Recesses. It should be, but, the deeper Lan Zhan dives into the contents (and the sender) the more tangled the story becomes, until he's sucked into something he's not sure he should have touched with someone he doesn't know, doesn't remember, but knows he needs to save.

    Wei Wuxian is living his best life, except for the fact that no one else can remember him. Ah—and he hangs out with spirits. Who may or may not want to kill him. Other than that, truly, his best life. It gets a little complicated when he somehow stumbles upon a plot he's one hundred percent not supposed to know about but people who really have no bearing on his life. So, like an idiot, he sticks his nose where it doesn't belong. Things go downhill (or uphill) from there.

    Summary

    “Do you know how old you are, a-Ying?”
    “This many,” Wei Ying said and held a hand out with three fingers up. He looked at his hand, considered for a minute, the point of his tongue sticking out between his teeth, put another finger up, then put it down, then up again, before he finally shrugged. “That many,” he said, as if he’d given them a satisfactory answer.
    ___
