    Summary

    It is of no use when the senior disciple in front of him attempts to stifle a smile so free in its amusement, for Lan Wangji has already seen it, in all its brilliance that rivals the sun. He is irredeemably and unequivocally dazed by it.

    Lying is forbidden, the rules say, and Lan Wangji is nothing but a good disciple.

    In this regard.

    So straightening his shoulders, he blurts to his shixiong, “Xian-ge, didi loves you.”

    Summary

    An essay on the subject of the Wen remnants. Who knew that they were non-combatants? Were the sects really the victims of a misinformation campaign as much of fandom argues, or did they all willingly go the Burial Mounds to massacre a group of people who they knew were innocent?

    I will argue the latter. A close reading of the novel text proves that the sects were all either well aware of who the Wens under Wei Wuxian's protection were, or made an active choice not to know.

    Summary

    Jin Ling had begun to suspect years ago that there were parts of his family history that had been crossed out; long streaks of black where Wei Wuxian had been. The truth is more like whole books being brought up from their hiding places again.

    Or: Jin Ling tries to figure out what family means, now.
