    Summary

    Jin Ling had begun to suspect years ago that there were parts of his family history that had been crossed out; long streaks of black where Wei Wuxian had been. The truth is more like whole books being brought up from their hiding places again.

    Or: Jin Ling tries to figure out what family means, now.

    Summary

    “Uncle,” Jin Ling says. “Just because Uncle Wei - I mean, Wei Wuxian - just because he’s leading the night-hunt, he’s teaching, he’s not doing anything wrong, he even notified you ahead of time -”

    The thing is, it is the polite thing to do. Whatever the Lan Sect are after in the night-hunt doesn’t have anything to do with Jiang Cheng, but now that they’re about to enter Yunmeng, it is the polite and proper thing to do, to notify the sect leader of the fact. The letter is simply such: letting Jiang Wanyin, the Yunmeng Jiang Sect Leader, know that they’re here. It’s simply - official correspondence. 

    Maybe that’s the part that rankles the worst, Jiang Cheng thinks. Official correspondence, written to him in a hand more familiar than his own.

    Summary

    He startles, glancing around. Wei Wuxian had just been right beside him. They hadn’t been speaking, after Wei Wuxian’s few abortive attempts at making conversation. Because Jiang Cheng hadn’t wanted to speak to him. He never wants to speak to him, ever again, because walking alongside Wei Wuxian, being on a night hunt with him— it’s too much. Even if he no longer wants Wei Wuxian dead, how can participate in these farces? How can he get so close to the thing he wants, only to remember he’ll never have it? He can’t let Wei Wuxian make casual conversation. He can’t allow him to weasel his way back into Jiang Cheng’s good graces, his heart. Because Jiang Cheng won’t survive it. He knows this very well.

    What starts as a simple competition during a night hunt quickly spirals out of control, leaving Jiang Cheng to confront his fears, his feelings, his inadequacies, and Wei Wuxian.
