    Summary

    Long ago, the gods appointed the Nie clan to be the executors of divine justice: to punish corruption, to fight against injustice, to protect the weak against the strong. They blessed your first ancestors with clever minds and strong consciences and loving hearts, taught them to walk among humans, to look and think and speak like humans, to fight like humans with a blade as well as with teeth and claws. They forged them into instruments, made the Nie clan the deadly sabre of heaven.

    But: said your mother—we have never forgotten that we used to be beasts. The heavens could not and would not take that away from us. We feel everything fierce and simple; that is our greatest strength and our greatest burden.

    You remember one day, perhaps a different day, when she held you close, though your mother was not someone who often showed her love through touch. She said, you feel so much, a-Jue; you are full to bursting with it.

    Summary

    When Meng Yao loses all impulse control and kisses Zewu-jun on the cheek, his excuse is that Chifeng-zun (Zewu-jun's lover) had simply given him a message to pass on.

    Zewu-jun calls his bluff.

    Meng Yao then finds himself the messenger for a vastly different sort of messages, if you know what I mean.

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian plays the flute. Someone in Wei Wuxian's apartment complex plays violin. Sometimes, they play the flute and the violin together, and it's... nice. It's really nice. It's sort of the nicest thing going on in his life right now, honestly.

    It's like the poets say: Music is love in search of a word.

    Summary

    There is a number saved in Meng Yao’s phone. Meng Yao doesn’t remember it.

    Here, a snapshot of spidery memory: the laugh of a stranger, the imprint of a hand on Meng Yao’s shoulder. Pressure against his mouth. The taste of skin. A dark braid crowning a perfect undercut, snaking down between powerful shoulders.

    There is a number saved in Meng Yao’s phone, a number that isn’t there but which he scrolls past in his contact history regardless. Every time he tries pressing ‘call’, the number… un-knows itself.
