    Summary

    Roy sleeps through the first four days of the trip, which, if he’d been thinking about it at all, is about what he would’ve expected. He contributed nothing to preparations, slept through the flight, passed out as soon as his face hit the unfamiliar mattress; they’re only out here in the first place because of a respiratory infection he couldn’t fully shake until less than a week before their departure, and frankly if pressed to identify where they are more closely than “south of Zhejiang” he wouldn’t be able to give a better answer. Ed’s been in and out - sandy, usually damp, putting some sweating drink or a skewer of shrimp or half a coconut full of pineapple cubes in Roy’s hands and saying things like “Some guys off the beach invited me on their yacht, wanna come?” - but Roy doesn’t really wake up for it in any real sense until halfway through the week.

    Summary

    Jingyi makes a sympathetic sound. “I’ve got a buddy in one of the Hefei labs, and he says there’s some evidence to suggest that people stuck in limbo develop, like, whole new neural pathways. And you go in and out of it all the time, right, so who knows what your brain is up to.” His eyes light up. “Oh man, would you let me — ”

    “Obviously no,” Wei Ying says, voice flat. “But you’re close enough to right. I can keep you all safely in the level, but it’s tiring. I can’t be both dreamer and extractor.”

    “I’ll do it,” Lan Zhan cuts in, before Jingyi can protest or Wen Yuan can ask any further questions. “It’s not a problem.”

    “Are you sure?” Wen Yuan asks, brow furrowing. “If your sub-security picks up that Xian-gege doesn’t belong — ”

    “They won’t.”

    Wei Ying frowns. “Not for nothing, ge,” he says slowly, “but the last time we were in your dream together, I fell off a cliff.”

    Lan Zhan looks up and over at him. There is something in his eyes that Wei Ying can’t quite read: something fierce, and faraway. “I remember,” he says, voice quiet. “Do you?”

    -

    Wei Ying takes a dream heist job with an old friend.

    Summary

    “The easiest way to end your rut is for you to complete your...urges. So,” and then he smiled winningly.

    Lan Zhan got it. Wei Ying could tell because of the way he tried to press further back into the cave wall, even though Wei Ying hadn’t gotten any closer. Which felt a little unfair, he wasn’t totally unfortunate looking. “Tell me why not.”

    “It’s not respectful.”

    So Wei Ying was right, this was about the rules. But there was not a single rule that he thought was worth sacrificing human lives to uphold.

    ---

    When Lan Zhan goes into rut in the Xuanwu cave, Wei Ying helps him through it.
