    Summary

    “Lan Luan-daifu says it looks like you’ve been undereating for months.”

    “I eat!” Wei Wuxian protests. “You watch me eat, Lan Zhan!” Why is he protesting? He knows exactly what he’s been fucking up, and Lan Zhan almost certainly has the shape of it if not the details. The words stick in his throat, fishbones to choke on, and he drinks more soup in a sullen attempt at washing them away.

    “Wei Ying,” Lan Zhan says, setting a hand on his too-wiry thigh. There’s a whole sentence in the name now, layers of meaning, and he says some of it out loud with, “What’s wrong?

    The fight goes out of Wei Wuxian. It’s finally easy to surrender: Lan Zhan knows. It’s humiliating, but he knows. “Ah, Lan Zhan,” he says quietly. “It’s… complicated.”

    Lan Zhan nods, his hand petting over Wei Wuxian’s leg in comforting arcs. “Then we can work together to fix it,” he says earnestly. “Tell me?”

    Or: Recovery is complicated.

    Summary

    "Are you going for the course?" Lovegood asked. "You have the NEWTs.”

    “What course?” Draco said, then, “No, don’t be ridiculous,” when he realized she meant the notice pinned up on the board he’d been staring at: Applicants To The Introductory Mediwizard Course For The Coming Term Shall Present Themselves In The Chief Mediwizard’s Office By August 24th.

    “Oh, I thought you might,” she said. “Well, goodbye.” And off she wandered again in her addled way.

    (In which everything is mostly the same, but Charles is hiding a hairy secret.)

    Summary

    He’d tried, in the end, he really had. And it had been hard; so damn hard. Would’ve been so much easier to crawl off into the woods like a dying dog and let himself be reclaimed by the wilderness. But, getting them folks out, sending them to safety, doing his best to protect them from the Pinkertons and Dutch’s lunacy and that rat...

    For maybe the first time in his life, there was no doubt in his mind about what was right or wrong, good or evil. He just knew.

    The sunlight warms his face, and he smiles.

    But then he hears footsteps.

    -

    Meanwhile, Charles Smith can’t stop looking back at the mountains to the south, and wondering what it means to be home.
