    Summary

    “You could stay here in Gusu. With me.” The words were spoken as calmly as ever but the hesitation, the slight tremor underneath the words, pulled at Wei Wuxian’s heartstrings the same way Lan Zhan’s fingers plucked at a zither.

    “The Chief Cultivator fraternizing with the Yiling Patriarch? Lan Zhan, you know it’s impossible.” It was a poor attempt at humor; there was too much truth in the statement for it to be amusing. As expected, Lan Zhan didn’t laugh.

    “Why?” He turned towards him, his lips drawing into a severe frown.

    It isn't easy, but parting was a necessary evil. Returning is the greatest privilege.

    Summary

    The second he noticed the direction of her gaze, he shoved the box at her. She took it out of reflex; it was heavier than she expected, the wood thick and glossy under her fingers. She didn’t get the chance to ask what was inside before Jin Zixuan blurted, “My mother wishes for me to write Maiden Jiang letters of my affection in order to reinforce the betrothal. However, I… am uncertain of how to do so, and would like to request your assistance as both a woman and a trusted cultivator.”

    MianMian stared at him. Looked down at the box.

    “You want me to write your fiancée love letters,” she clarified.

     

    ------------------

    Or, the one where MianMian writes Jiang Yanli love letters as Jin Zixuan and the ladies fall in love instead.

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian read Lan Wangji's letter again, unraveling each line in his mind. Already he chose some favorite phrases--the day you left was full of weary hours. Rain spreads cool relief upon these heated evenings, which have only worsened since your parting...

    “Lan Zhan, Lan Zhan, who knew you could be so forward,” smiled Wei Wuxian under his breath. The corners of his mouth twisted. A breeze rustled the tree leaves, now full and green in the dawn of summer. “Shameless!”

    //

    After the events at Yu Ping Cheng's temple, Wei Wuxian must part from Lan Wangji--for now. Slow burn, countless pining WangXian letters, processing feelings, gaining friendships, and—of course—an eventual reunion.

    Illustrations included in chapters 9 and 10.

    “So how did you three negotiate that whole… thing, anyway?” Shang Qinghua says around the straw that leads into her iced coffee.
    “What thing?” Shen Qingqiu asks, frowning.
    “You know,” Shang Qinghua says. “Your thing. With Luo Binghe and Liu Qingge.”
    “What thing?” Shen Qingqiu repeats, frowning harder.
    “Come on, I thought for sure Luo Binghe was going to rip off Liu Qingge’s head when you kept flirting with her after the two of you got together,” Shang Qinghua says.
    “When I what,” Shen Qingqiu says.
