    Summary

    Jonathan’s life was fine. He didn’t need other people. He studied them instead, like fire ants on the abandoned edge of the playground; carefully, with a stick and good shoes, watching their patterns and keeping his observations to himself, figuring out which ones to leave alone and which ones would make good surprises in bullies’ backpacks. Other people were tools, in the multiple definitions of the word. He used them. He didn’t like them. He didn’t need them. He was fine.

    All in all, it wasn’t difficult to stay a virgin until he turned thirty.

    Summary

    “He smiles too much,” Lan Wangji says, frowning at the pixelated headshot of the instructor. Flippancy is not necessarily forbidden, but it is strongly discouraged, especially when one is a thousand feet above ground instructing the light of someone else’s life.

     

    Lan Sizhui is going for his Sword Flight Licence. Lan Wangji is panicked.

    Summary

    Lan Wangji had always known he was different. One day, his brother and uncle sat him down, and told him that the reason was called autism. But that was fine, because he didn’t need to be like everyone else. He knew exactly what he loved. And what he loved was rules.

    It made perfect sense, then, to become an attorney. With an encyclopaedic knowledge of every law on the books, Hanbada law firm had never seen such a stellar win record from an associate. His life was going exactly to plan. He ate gimbap, he won cases, he had one whole friend, and he knew everything there was to know about whales rabbits. He followed the rules.

    Why, then, did a legal investigator named Wei Wuxian want to upend it all?

    Summary

    “I’m not here to help you with your work,” said Lan Zhan, injecting frost into his voice to deter any further attempts at charm. “I’ll be focusing on my research.”

    Wei Ying cocked his head. “Research?” he said.

    “Mm. I’m a cultivation researcher, not a department employee. I’m reconstructing the ancient musical cultivation techniques of the Lan clan.”

    ___

    Lan Zhan’s new liaison at the Caiyi Municipal Cultivation Department is an enigma – ridiculously talented, yet somehow content with mopping up spiritual pests for barely above minimum wage. Wei Ying is slapdash and irresponsible, and Lan Zhan doesn’t like him at all… but then he meets A-Yuan, who loves music and longs for a piano his father can’t afford.

    Forced into cautious friendship by a four-year-old's music lessons, Lan Zhan soon realises Wei Ying is more than he seems. The single father is a man of many secrets – including, perhaps, the key to Lan Zhan's life's work. And in the meantime, the background resentment in Caiyi Town is rising to dangerous levels…
