    Summary

    "I'm starting to feel," says Lan Xichen, "that this was a counterproductive suggestion."

    Wei Wuxian looks down onto the pristine, tranquil cold springs of the Cloud Recesses. Sitting in the water, their bare shoulders rising like dumplings carefully spaced in a steaming-basket, are a large number of Lan disciples.

    "They seem to be doing better," he says, encouragingly. "If they--oh, no, I see what you mean."

    At the near bank, someone has pressed someone else against the rocks and is kissing them frantically.

    Summary

    “Wei Ying,” Lan Wangji says, voice slow and a pitch too quiet. A second later Wei Wuxian understands why. “I cannot hear.”

    Or; Lan Wangji is cursed into internal isolation. Their ability to understand one another remains as unwavering as ever.

    Summary

    or, one hundred and thirty-three principles of the Gusu Lan, pertaining to the state of marriage

     

    ***

    He bows to Wei Wuxian, sword in hand, sleeves falling properly. Wei Wuxian bows in return, and the sect leaders begin the opening courtesies, and for all of ten minutes Lan Wangji is under the impression that he is betrothed to a boy who is perfectly normal and acceptable apart from an unfortunate tendency to fidget with his clothes.

    That impression does not last.

    Summary

    “We hear that His Excellency might be married by summer’s end,” the merchant’s wife says and Wei Wuxian freezes, his heart in his throat. “The Gusu Lan sect has been buying enough red silk and brocade that the merchants in Caiyi can’t satisfy the demand.”

    He feels himself grow brittle inside, like a flick of a finger to his temple might make him shatter. His ears are ringing.

    “Who’s the lucky bride?” he asks despite himself. His tongue sticks to the roof of his mouth.

    Or: The story of a marriage.
