    Summary

    Generally, Shen Qingqiu only visits him at work when he’s really got something to yell about—protagonist dick size or sex pollen caves or weird poisons that Shang Qinghua forgot to invent cures to, or something. Today, he says, “Look, there’s news and I thought you should hear it from me.”

    Shang Qinghua doesn’t look up from his papers at first. “Okay, sure,” he says, absently—how much money are they spending on incense again? Absolutely fucking absurd—and glances up when Shen Qingqiu remains silent. “What is it?”

    Shen Qingqiu folds the fan and taps it nervously against his palm. “Mobei-jun’s getting married,” he says.

    Summary

    “He will not be swayed. He does not see reason. At least not my reason,” Lan Wangji adds as an afterthought. Wei Ying is many things, but not unreasonable.

    “Reason is often not the most persuasive argument,” Xichen states mildly. “Perhaps there is another way that his stance can be influenced.”

    Frowning, Lan Wangji asks, “What way?”

    He eyes him from the side. “One that appeals to his heart rather than his mind. His heart, and… well. His body.”

    His-

    Lan Wangji flushes.

    “Xiongzhang.”

    (Or, Lan Wangji decides to court Wei Wuxian in an intimate manner when he leaves for the Burial Mounds, and it somehow changes everything.)

    Summary

    "Home," she says eventually, pointing out at the sea.

    "Can you swim?"

    She shakes her head, stops. Thinks about it. Shakes her head again. "N-n-not home."

    "Not your home?" Lan Zhan thinks about it. "Your home is the sea, but not this part of it?"

    -
    Lan Zhan is one of few practising cultivators left. She spends her days at sea, on her boat putting restless souls at ease. She did not realise that she, too, is a restless soul.

    Summary

    In order to pay off a debt that's not his, Shang Qinghua agrees to marry a man that's as cold and unyielding as he is stupidly rich.

    “Marriage?” His voice breaks over the word like it’s a curse. “Really? Doesn’t it feel a bit irrational?”

    “Are you planning to pay off an eight-figure debt with this job and a host job?” Mobei Jun asks, and Shang Qinghua almost wants to throttle him. Though, if his wallet didn’t have a direct funnel to his dad’s bank account, Shang Qinghua might actually have been a little comfortable.

    “That’s not what I meant!” Shang Qinghua huffs, his head still spinning. As far as being a married man goes, Shang Qinghua is nowhere near ready.

    “What?” Mobei Jun raises a single eyebrow. “Were you looking to marry for love?”
