    Summary

    Jin Ling's birth is the happiest occasion of Jin Zixuan's life. But every gold spoon has some rust: Wei Wuxian has taken up residence too.

    Lan Wangji has resigned himself to losing the love of his life without saying a word.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    “What,” Jin Zixuan says, feeling a headache approaching, “are you doing?”

    Wei Wuxian looks up from where he’s holding Jin Ling – harassing Jin Ling – whatever it is that’s going on here. Whoever left him unsupervised is going to regret it, Jin Zixuan thinks darkly.

    “Just teaching him words,” Wei Wuxian says. “He’s very stubborn though. Can you believe he hasn’t said a single word yet?”

    “He’s two months old,” Jin Zixuan bites out.

    “Shijie was already speaking in full sentences at that age,” Wei Wuxian says with the confidence of someone who hasn’t actually met Jiang Yanli until she was eleven. “Must be your side of the family, I suppose.”

    Soon, Jin Zixuan promises himself. Wei Wuxian is going to be out of here soon. He’s going to be stuck in Qinghe or Gusu, two of the most depressing places in the realm, and he’s never going to come back. Soon.

    Summary

    Jiang Cheng stares at him. “Didn’t you say you broke up five months ago?”

    “Yeah.”

    “So why do you have a picture of you two kissing taped to your fridge?”

    “Because we’re too broke for magnets,” Wei Wuxian explains, then considers that statement. “Well, I’m too broke for magnets. Lan Zhan probably refuses to buy them because he’s trying to have lofty ideas about the moral failings of materialism.”

    Wei Wuxian navigates the trials of living with his ex-boyfriend in apartment 1301.

    “Okay,” says Wei Wuxian after a while. “Consider this. What if I locked up my feelings inside and then, one day, I disappeared.”

    “Not died?”

    “No, dying is unromantic. Disappearing has, you know, like an air of mystery. A bit of flair.”

    “Hmm,” says Wen Ning.

    Summary

    Relax,” the intruder says. “It’s just me.”

    Ed gets a better look, and sees a black ponytail and a sharp jaw, then looks away again, cheeks hot as he sits back down and starts hunting for another rock to throw. “Yeah,” he says. “Which you is that, exactly?”

    “Don’t be a dick,” he answers, and sits down next to him, cross-legged and casual, starting to sift around in the sand for his own stone. Ed makes an educated guess.

    “Ling?” he asks. It comes out quieter than he’d meant it, more hopeful. Ling smiles in that sun-bright way he has, and Ed’s heart stutters. Stupid, stupid.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    If he was a normal person this wouldn’t be so hard, but Ed has carried a brother and a secret and a lifetime of guilt on his back since age twelve and he doesn’t know how to let go of it long enough to kiss a boy by a river and hope for new beginnings.

    Summary

    Atsumu tilts his head to watch a slice of orange light bend over the impassive planes of Sakusa’s face. He is absolutely, ruthlessly beautiful. It makes Atsumu want to punch something—put his foot through the windshield—scream, maybe.

    Kiss him again, maybe.

    They have 344 kilometers to figure this one out.

    Summary

    Because misfortune come in threes, Iwaizumi Hajime starts his Thursday having a screaming fight with Shittykawa, spends his lunch break listening to the UCI women's volleyball team gossiping about how Ushijima Wakatoshi had gone public about his longtime love affair with Oikawa Tooru, and closes out the day by drunkenly dropping his phone into a sewer grate.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Hajime manages to both help and not puke on anything, which Julie says is both admirable and worthy of a treat, so she takes him for coffee and interrogations after lab.

    This was one of those social dynamics for which no amount of online research could have prepared him, the way people in America just casually dragooned you into being friends without any clear discussion of consent. He'd been careful and entirely polite, but apparently they'd stood next to each other for a couple of months so that meant that this was his life now: getting bullied by a five foot zero Korean girl in line at Starbucks.
