    Summary

    “I still am.”

    Wei Wuxian stares at him, his gaze drawn by the words and held by the fierce steadiness in his eyes.

    What if: they were able to continue their conversation on Phoenix Mountain.

    Summary

    Everyone likes to say things, platitudes, really, about good days and bad days. Wei Ying doesn’t have either. There are good minutes and bad minutes. Good hours and bad hours. Sometimes, they can get four, five hours at a stretch before something goes wrong, but it never lasts.


    Wei Ying survives a violent assault. The world keeps turning.

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian has been left largely to his own devices on his planet's lighthouse, with only his trusty android friend W3N Qing for help. But a "surprise" site inspector is coming, probably to check if he's been breaking any intergalactic statutes in his work. And so he's preparing for the inspector's arrival.

    What he's not prepared for is Lan Wangji.

    Summary

    “Uh, I...” Wei Ying said. She looked down at the rowing machine’s handles, then back to her gym crush. “How is it supposed to -?”

    Her gym crush’s lips thinned for a second. Like it was annoying to her to have to explain the shit she’d gone out of her way to say. Or like she saw right through Wei Ying and her extremely obvious effort to keep her talking.

    “Hold the handles, not the cables,” Wei Ying’s gym crush said.

    Wei Ying tilted her head, feeling her ponytail sweep across her arched back, and asked, “... show me?”

    Summary

    Lan Wangji has known all his life that he is destined for some book-lined office, for publication credits and funding awards, the grown-up versions of school prizes for academic achievement. The prospect has, for the most part, been comforting. But as the academic year wears on, he finds his work increasingly taking a backseat to Wen Qing's plans to unseat, or at least unsettle, their Head of Faculty, and Lan Wangji begins to look beyond the library walls. (Any influence from local chaos gremlin Wei Wuxian will not be acknowledged at this time, thank you very much.)

    Or: maybe the real academic networking was all the groupchats we were added to along the way.
