    Summary

    “Don’t worry, there’s no one here to see you,” Vegas says, reaching down to fondle Pete, liking the soft feather-weight of him limp in his palm. “And I already know what you are.”

    Pete makes another small, wounded noise. That’s not what he hates about being stripped and strung up by his wrists in the living room, and they both know it. In their room, in the dark, he can let himself sublimate into mist. The cocoon of the familiar and the specific. Out here, where it’s bright and open, the parts of the house where he is his most human—he doesn’t want that. Vegas can see it in his eyes.

    That’s okay. Vegas wants it enough for them both.

    (Pete and Vegas negotiate, with mixed results)

    Summary

    Lan Qiren's sister-in-law disappeared with his nephew shortly before the birth of her second child. Twelve years later, Lan Qiren encounters some teens and tweens in a teahouse.
    .
    It’s impossible. He could be stepping back forty years to his own childhood, to that very face on his brother showing how to grip a sword for the first time. Lan Qiren makes a kind of choked noise, but thankfully it must be quiet enough that none of the young men hear.

    Either he’s going senile at the age of fifty or--

    His head is ringing, but all he can think is that the young man is the right age. It’s been just over twelve years since his sister-in-law’s second pregnancy was announced, and here is this boy, with that nose and that chin and that brow, already furrowed, just like his father...

    Summary

    Lan Xichen pauses before he speaks. He often does. “A-Yao, will you…?”

    There are any number of things that Lan Xichen might be about to say. He might be about to say, “A-Yao, will you cook breakfast while I bathe in the river?” But then, there is a gravity to his tone, and a flush on his cheeks. So perhaps it will be, “A-Yao, will you do that thing with your tongue?” Or even more thrillingly, “A-Yao, will you teach me how to do that thing with your tongue?”

    Lan Xichen does not say any of these things. He says, “A-Yao, will you marry me? If we both survive the war, will you marry me?”

    .

    Lan Xichen proposes before the war. Somehow, through the property of transitivity, Wei Wuxian becomes Meng Yao’s problem to solve.

    Summary

    The thorns hurt the most. There’s the constant taste of blood in his mouth, and breathing brings indescribable pain. Rolling on the infirmary bed, Pete can list every type of pain he’s felt in his life. His father’s fists. The training he underwent under Kan’s men, every kind of drill they put him through. Vegas’s kicks, the insults he would spit at Pete when Pete tried to talk to him after a visit from his father. His mother’s crying. Pete was not even thirty yet, and he was already so intimate with pain. But not this. Not the velvety petals rising from his throat, the thorns scratching his insides, making him burn, making him go very still and then scream in a broken voice.

    The bodyguard for the eldest son of the minor family falls in love, and tries not to be.
