  3. Summary

    There's a gene, rare enough to be all but unknown, hidden deep in the DNA of humanity. It emerges only when triggered by intense situations of danger and anger. In some places, places torn by warfare, by violence, these situations might happen often enough for some cultural knowledge of it. These cultures might call those in possession of this active gene various things - Úlfhéðnar, mengamuk, berserker, even rager; they are often regarded as myth by the wider world.

    Being myths doesn't stop them from being real. Being in a world with no idea how to help them doesn't stop them from existing to be in need of help. The world doesn't know how to deal with them, and neither do they. In the absence of understanding, of comprehension or explanation, the possessors of the active gene are often labelled Problem Children.

    Summary

    Sizhui cannot plaster a smile on his face and act like he doesn’t want to crawl out of his skin at the mere thought of being affiliated with Cloud Recesses — of being a Lan, in all honesty — like he doesn’t want to burn the whole place down. Logically, it’s probably not true, it’s not a reflection of himself, but something about staying here, in this comfort, and maintaining a sense of normalcy feels like consenting to the genocide of his people. 

    What do you do when your home no longer feels like home? 

    -

    Sizhui leaves.

    Summary

    “All right,” Wei Wuxian said, when Lan Qiren announced that the Cloud Recesses would be imminently under attack by Wen Xu and the Wen sect armies, the calm in his monotone voice belied by the wrinkle of concern in his forehead. “We’re going to make that bastard wish he’d never been born, right?”

    He wasn’t expecting Lan Qiren to look at him and say, “If you have any ideas, now is the time to contribute them.”

    Summary

    “The…Lan sect?” Meng Yao said doubtfully. “Are you sure?”

    “I am,” his mother said, her mouth tight. She looked upset, the way she always did these days when he referenced, intentionally or otherwise, the original plan that she had had to send him to join his father, sect leader of Lanling Jin. She’d raised Meng Yao on a steady diet of stories of what his life would be like when his father finally took him back the way he’d promised her he would, stories that had filled his days and nights for years and years and years, and then just last year she’d suddenly stopped talking about it entirely. It was as if the person who’d told those stories had nothing to do with her.

    Meng Yao didn’t know what had happened, but he assumed it must have been pretty bad.

    “It'll be a good fit,” she added.

    Summary

    “My lady,” the midwife said. “Congratulations. You have a daughter.”

    Madame Jin shook her head. “I need a son,” she said.

    “My lady –”

    “I’m not doing that again,” Madame Jin said, her voice getting stronger. “I need a son.”

    “But –”

    She looked at her loyal maid, who inclined her head.

    A knife flashed.

    “Congratulations, my lady,” her maid said, pushing aside the midwife’s body with her foot. “You have a son.”

    Madame Jin smiled.
