    Bookmarker's Notes

    Scenes From Three Winters is the crowning jewel of this beautifully evocative series wherein LWJ and WWX live happily ever after in a world where the people are still flawed and human.

    Summary

    Six months after they part ways, Lan Zhan and a flock of Lan disciples show up to invite Wei Wuxian along on a nighthunt. He'd rather have time alone with Lan Zhan, but if this is the only way Lan Zhan wants his company, he can't say no.

    When Wei Wuxian gets cursed to only speak honestly, long-held secrets come to light.

    Wei Wuxian snorted. “Jiang Cheng told me that I could visit Lotus Pier.”

    “Did he?”

    “Yes, but that—” doesn’t matter “meant the world to me.” He scrubbed a hand over his face. “What I’m trying to say is that I understand people give invitations they do not truly mean. I… I didn’t want to show up in Cloud Recesses and then watch you regret making the offer. I’m not the same as I was in school. I feared rejection then—even if I didn’t show it—but I did not believe anyone’s rejection could ever break me. If you rejected me now...” He squeezed his eyes shut. “One-word answers. This was why we both wanted me to keep to one-word answers. I never planned on saying that.”

    “Wei Ying.”

    “Please don’t feel obligated. I have broken before, but I’ve survived nearly everything that’s come at me. When I came back to life, my first wish was that I had stayed dead, but even then I continued on, and I will keep continuing on. If I came to Cloud Recesses and you turned away from me, it would not break me. But it would hurt, and I’m tired of being hurt.”

    Jin Ling hadn’t thought to keep track of Wei Wuxian.

    Clearly that had been a mistake.

    “The first time you woke up, you told me you didn’t belong anywhere,” Jin Ling says. “That’s stupid. You’re my mother’s brother. You’re my family and you belong here. I didn’t need to know you to know that. I added it that night. You’re my uncle, you belong to the Jin, and the Lan can’t have you.”

    Summary

    “I’ll help,” Lan Wangji says.

    “Hey, Lan Zhan...” Wei Wuxian unfolds his leg and gives his foot a playful kick. “I told you to think about it! This means I’d be here for a long time, taking up your time, your space, your peace. And I can’t pay you! I have nothing of worth to give. It isn’t as simple as-”

    “I’ll do it,” he says again, more forcefully this time. “You don’t have to give me anything.”

    Wei Wuxian looks away, hiding a small smile. Doesn’t he know Lan Wangji would do anything for him, by now? Doesn’t he understand that he holds Lan Wangji’s life in his hands?

    -

    POST-CQL Wei Wuxian comes back to the Cloud Recesses to ask for Lan Wangji's help with his new golden core.
    Together, they learn how to communicate, how to ask for things, and how to touch each other.

    Their relationship develops in between quiet dinners in the Jingshi, meditation sessions, core training and a lot of Lan Juniors speculation on whether or not they're actually together yet.
