    Summary

    Sometimes reflections showed Lan Zhan glimpses of another life.

    It had been happening for as long as he could remember. Usually—at least at the start, back when he was learning to brush his own teeth, and still needed a stool to stand on to reach the sink—he would see the boy in the bathroom mirror. In the very beginning, he had parents with him...something that Lan Zhan and his brother did not have in their uncle's quiet home. Lan Zhan remembers watching them, that happy family, grinning at each other in the mirror, laughing as they poked the corners of each other's mouths to stretch those smiles even wider. It all looked very silly.

    Summary

    This is Lan Wangji's life: he has a sensible early dinner and then studies in the lounge six nights a week, and then on the seventh he pretends to study, gathers data on the precise way Wei Wuxian’s tongue darts out to lick his gloss-shiny lips after he does shots of Goldschläger, and then jerks off in the shower secure in the knowledge that Su She will never hear him over his own off-key singing.

    It’s fine. A little hopeless yearning and some ruined biochem notes. It’s the “college experience” Xichen advocated so furiously with their uncle for Lan Wangji to have, probably.

    or: a matched pair of love poems to clove cigarettes, stompy boots, corsets, and college-common-lounge-based goth yearning

    Summary

    Let’s imagine a world where Jiang Fengmian, not exactly a scholar in the usual sense, nevertheless had an inordinate fondness of four-word idioms. He liked the simple, concise elegance of them, of expressing so much with so little.

    Let’s imagine in this world, when Jiang Fengmian took Wei Wuxian home and told him he is no longer 举目无亲 (jǔ mù wú qīn), eyes raised to see no one familiar, Wei Wuxian fell a little in love with the power of four words neatly grouped together as well.

    (Much later, in a dark, damp cave with the sun scorched over his heart and Lan Wangji biting down on his arm harshly enough to leave markings of his teeth behind, this small love for neat groupings of four words will change everything. But he doesn’t know this just yet.)
