    Summary

    For centuries, the villagers surrounding the Qianlian Forest have been beholden to a fearsome creature. A once loved Prince was long ago cursed into a monstrous form, and ever since has required the sacrifice of maidens to ensure the safety of the forest and the people living around it. This forlorn tradition might have continued for centuries longer... but when it comes time for Lotus Pier to send a maiden as tribute, Jiang Yanli is chosen, and Wei Wuxian won't stand for it. His plan is simple; he'll send Jiang Yanli off to live the long life she deserves with her fiancé, and offer himself as a sacrifice to the Prince instead.

    Summary

    The rumor says that the Yiling Laozu will accept any deal, for a price, and since there is always some place in the city that is broken, infected, crawling with malice, there are always those who are willing to pay, and the Yiling Laozu will then get the job done.

    He helps keep the balance, where the path of traditional cultivation fails.

    The city can use — sometimes the city requires — someone who is just like him.

It’s a larger-than-life tale of murder, exile, culture shock, and the incredible power of human kindness as we ask the question: did Chicago have its own Canadian superhero in the ‘90s? The answer may surprise you. From WBEZ Chicago, it’s This American Life.

    Summary

    Wangji shuts his eyes and rocks A-Yuan and thinks about Wei Ying, Wei Ying. The sound of his laugh; the rage in his eyes at any cruelty, no matter how small. Water running down his face, mixed with tears and mud in the rain. The smell of his sweat and his combing-oil when he stood too close in the cold spring. His face when he’d said, I’ll carry you, too many years ago. If there is anything left of him, Wangji will still love it. It’s not even a question.

    When he opens his eyes all the candles in the room sputter at once, and go out.

    And then they come back again, as easily as they were extinguished. Wangji looks up, to find a tall shadow in the doorway.

    Wangji is not afraid.

    “Wei Ying,” he says. “Come in.”
