    Summary

    Wei Ying first hears about the ball over dinner.

    "They're trying to marry off Second Prince," Fourth Uncle says, through a mouthful of stew. "There is going to be a ball, for all the gentry." "Everybody who's rich and titled, who's got a son or daughter the right age, will be invited. Second Prince will pick someone out."

    "He's probably very stuffy and full of himself!" Wei Ying snorts. "I pity whoever has to marry him!"

    (In which Wei Ying, a fugitive from justice, sneaks into the palace, steals from the imperial family, and eats his words.

    AKA, yet another Cinderella AU.)

    Summary

    Lan Wangji had long since stopped thinking of Wei Wuxian's body as Mo Xuanyu's. He grew used to all the ways it was different and the same from the last. But slowly, surely, now that they were comfortable, Wei Wuxian's face had begun to change again. The lines of his jaw became a slightly smudged drawing. Not all together unfamiliar, just enough that Lan Wangji second-guessed his own memory. There was one night Lan Wangji came home to find Wei Wuxian's eyes had changed color. He woke one morning and was taller, his silhouette stretching and growing like a shadow cast against the wall.

    His smile was the same. The way he pouted, and slept in, the way he kissed. His terrible jokes. Lan Wangji would get used to a new face too if the husband was still the same.

    -

    Or, the one where Wei Wuxian's face begins to change to look like his original body. It isn't easy on anyone. But it isn't so bad, either.

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian is fatally injured, but Lan Wangji is nothing if not stubborn.

    “If I was gone, Hanguang-Jun, what would you do?”

    He asks it on a quiet morning at the end of summer, the hum and click of insects outside whispering into the Jingshi. It’s warm once the mist burns off the Recesses, and bright with dappled sunlight.

    Lan Wangji looks at him, brow pinched. “Nothing,” he says after a moment.

    It is, he discovers three months later, the first lie Lan Wangji has ever told.

    Summary

    “Hanguang-jun,” Wei Wuxian repeats. His heart clenches. He wants—but he’d really meant to have this nightmare stuff down before they met again, so he wouldn’t find himself relying on Lan Wangji’s nearness. He’s not supposed to go back yet. But he’s so tired, and his will crumbles. “Yeah,” he says. “All right. Take me back to Gusu with you.”
