    Summary

    Grandmother ruled Gir Niajra, and always had.

    Jummai felt certain this was so, mostly because it was impossible to imagine otherwise: anyone, anyone at all, seated so comfortably on that great golden throne except Grandmother? Anyone who could look or speak with such authority, to whom so many great and worthy people bowed down? No—only Grandmother. It had always been Grandmother, and it always would be.

    Then Grandmother died; and there was a war.

    (Or: Jummai is a princess without a throne—but she has no intention of leaving to others what is rightfully hers. She needs a wife with an army, and gets one; but her wife seems impervious to her tactical charm, she keeps making mistakes, and her cousin still wants her dead.)

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian doesn’t let the Wen Remnants hand themselves over after Jin Zixuan’s death. Instead he makes one last sacrifice to ensure they survive. Months later, a Lan cultivator kneels at the edge of the Burial Mounds, ready to offer himself to the feared Yiling Patriarch.

    Or: Sacrifice is an old magic, but love is even older.

    Summary

    High Fantasy/Science Fiction AU.

    The cot looked like a death trap. It was held together by a bunch of leather straps connected to a metal frame. Even with a mattress put on top it looked like a torture device.

    "If I die in the night, I will come back to haunt you," Wei Wuxian said, eyeing it.

    "It is not for you," Lan Wangji said.

    "What? I'm a prisoner. Of course I'm taking the cot."

    "You are a guest and you are taking the bed."

    "I'm not taking the bed. Come on, I can't let you sleep on that. If you die everyone will blame me."

    "I will not die."
