    He sees, and he wants.

    Summary

    Lan Wangji and Wei Wuxian are still learning each other. When Lan Wangji expresses that he is extremely interested in allowing Wei Ying to treat him a bit rougher, Wei Wuxian has some trepidation. But Lan Wangji is nothing if not patient and stubborn, and through his characteristic commitment to a task (not to mention the truly staggering amount of trust and love he has for Wei Ying), he finally gets his way. (As he should.)

    Summary

    I need Wei Ying, he admitted to himself. Over and over. When he was supposed to be listening and mediating. When he was supposed to be planning and approving. When he was supposed to be hearing the junior’s lessons. I need Wei Ying.

    And then one day: I need Wei Ying. I need help getting Wei Ying. Who do I ask for help?

    or

    Lan Zhan enlists Nie Huaisang's help in writing a letter to Wei Ying because both of them are idiots.

    Summary

    In order to make Wei Wuxian feel welcome at the Cloud Recesses, and to make sure people give him the respect he deserves (and definitely not to get into his pants), Lan Wangji hires him to be his advisor.

    or

    “Lan Zhan, did you hire me just so you could punish people for disrespecting me?”

    “No,” Lan Wangji said. “It is a side benefit.”

    “Why did you hire me?”

    “Because you are knowledgeable and skilled,” Lan Wangji said, “and I trust you to assist me in my work.”

    Because everything is easier with you around and because I feel like a part of me is missing without you and because you can say things I can’t and because I need you he did not say.

    “And you secretly like being a bitch to people,” Wei Wuxian added, with a sly grin.

    Summary

    The best things that ever happened to Lan Qiren were brought to him in the middle of the night by women with perms. First, his nephews, stricken with grief at the death of their parents, then Wei Ying, brought by a harried babysitter when his parents disappeared.

    or

    There’s no time or space for grief or anything. He takes the children to buy black suits, he leaves them behind in the apartment, twelve-year-old A-Huan assuring him he’s old enough to be left alone with his brother, to go to their house and oversee it being packed up, the furniture sold, the personal effects of his brother and his wife put in storage.

    There’s no room for decisions or education. Only him sitting at his table with two children, eating in silence, only hearing A-Huan whispering to his brother in the middle of the night, only the three of them all tangled up together with grief and confusion and pain.

    And the certainty that he isn’t… that he won’t be a good parent.
