    Summary

    There’s a face in the water. Reflected on the smooth, tranquil surface. Wei Wuxian startles. This face is not one he recognises. He’s filled with an odd emotion; a yearning for something that’s not there anymore, a fear that he no longer knows his own face. Because it’s really not his own face, is it? 

    Wei Wuxian finally brings his hands into the bowl and splashes his face with the cool water. When he’s done, he pats himself dry with a cloth and dares to peek back down at the water. It hasn't settled yet. Ripples glide along the surface, distorting his face as he stares and stares.

    It’s the only way he can stand to look at himself.

    Or: Wei Wuxian has a new body. He tries to get used to it.

    Summary

    “You must be the witch,” Wang Yibo says, and Xiao Zhan remembers the caution not to take anything personally.

    “Xiao Zhan,” he offers, settling into the empty chair at the next station over and letting the stylist remove his hat, setting it on the counter in front of him.

    “I know.” Wang Yibo grins at him in the mirror, holding still as the stylist working on him dabs foundation onto his forehead. “I’ve met a lot of singers but I’ve never met a witch before.”

    “Earthwitch,” Xiao Zhan corrects as his stylist combs her fingers through his hair, getting to know the shape of it. He then feels compelled to add, “and how do you know you’ve never met one?”

    Yibo blinks, and then his eyes sharpen. “I would know, wouldn’t I?”

    Xiao Zhan smiles. “Would you?”


    It’s no fault of Xiao Zhan’s that he’s the first earthwitch most people have knowingly met; however he’s about to find out that there’s no one quite like Wang Yibo.

    Summary

    He stitches a tiny row of suns along the left cuff of his inner robe—not flames, never flames, not after Lotus Pier burned, not after Wen Qing burned—suns, life-giving and scorching, for the last, best doctor of Qishan Wen. She would probably laugh at his badly sewn suns and his sentimentality, but her eyes would be soft. Some days, he misses her so much he thinks it might swallow him whole.

    Summary

    “The nicest!” he exclaimed aloud, to the alarm of some nearby birds. He threw his head back and laughed, delighted in the absurdity of life and all its follies. The birds resettled in the branches above him and he grinned up at them. He could skip, he could sing, he could dance down the road kicking up dust. He could let his heart burst with love, as it had been made to do.

     

    For the prompt: Wei Wuxian has a nice day, and nothing bad happens.
