    Summary

    Steve smiled a bit and then sighed. “So the serum makes everything inside more? Than why are you picking me? I’m an angry Brooklynite. I get in fights all the time. Sometimes I feel like the injustice of everything's gonna crash down on me like a pail of cement and I’m so angry I nearly can’t move.”

    Erskine looked at him again. “Perhaps that is precisely why, Steven. Perhaps that is precisely why.”

    Steve blinked at Erskine.

    “Nobody even won a war feeling nothing but internal peace and happiness for the situation,” Erskine pointed out as he stood up. “And again, a weak man who has no power knows the value of strength. You, Steven, have seen many people abuse their power and you stand up to it. That is why I picked you.”

     

    The thing about the serum was that it amplified what was inside. This meant only what was inside, of course. As Erskine said, there were already "...so many big men fighting this war, maybe what we need now is a little guy."

    Summary

    “What prize do you desire?” the croupier asks, bone dice clacking in their black cup.

    Lan Wangji closes his eyes for a second, takes a breath, imagines his heart freezing into jade. “The body and soul of Wei Wuxian.”

    In the gambling house of the ghost king Crimson Rain Sought Flower, you can win any treasure--if you’re desperate enough, if you’re willing to risk enough, if you’re lucky enough. After six years of searching for any trace of Wei Wuxian, Lan Wangji is desperate enough to come to Hua Cheng’s gambling table, and he’s ready to pay any price. Luck has rarely been on his side, but he’ll need it tonight.

    You don’t need to know TGCF to read this, and this fic does not spoil any TGCF plot points (just a bit of worldbuilding).

    Summary

    "You want Wen Ruohan dead," the Patriarch continued idly. "You want his corpse puppets eliminated. You want his halls burned to the ground and his soldiers disemboweled and begging for mercy. Have I about covered it?"

    He gave another knife-edged smile.

    "But what will you give me in return?"

    "We would be willing to offer quite a bit in return for Wen Ruohan's defeat," Lan Xichen admitted. "But I'm afraid we don't know what an immortal such as yourself desires. Please advise us."

    The Patriarch waved at hand at the front of the tent. "I want Second Young Master Lan."

    (In which the Sunshot Campaign ends through an arranged marriage to the Yiling Patriarch, and Lan Wangji suffers the mortifying ordeal of falling in love with his own husband.)
