    Summary

    Wei Wuxian discovers a box of letters Lan Zhan wrote to him whlile he was dead.

    -

     

    The earlier letters, the ones deeply creased with age, are written in an unsteady hand. Lan Zhan's writing has always been impeccable, even here, the characters would be something anyone could be proud of, but Wei Wuxian can see the shadow of the tremor that must have been in Lan Zhan's hand. It might have been pain or exhaustion or grief that caused Lan Zhan's hand to shake; Wei Wuxian can imagine too easily—a deeply hurt Lan Zhan dragging the brush across the paper, aching with the things he cannot speak out loud.

     

    So many letters, each one a monument to grief too vast for the paper it's written on.

    Summary

    Is this what friends do? This doesn’t feel like what friends do. Friends don’t carry each other gingerly towards the couch. They don’t dip their heads down-down-down till they’re nearly kissing. They don’t proceed to tug off a shirt, then plant their hands across a landscape of skin that isn’t theirs, even if it’s to break a curse.

    Or maybe that’s what friends do. Maybe that’s what Lan Zhan does for friends. Wei Ying finds that he’s too confused, too panicked and tired and exhausted, to figure it out.
    ---
    Wei Ying gets hits by a curse. Lan Zhan finds himself in a very specific position.

    Summary

    The weather on Qing Jing Peak was never just boring. It was either gloriously sunny, with a blazing blue sky and charming little birds twittering among the bamboo, or dramatically storming, rain pounding against the walls, the perfect backdrop for a furious confrontation or declaration of all-consuming love (read: lust). So when Shen Qingqiu woke up to a light, uninteresting drizzle falling from a dishwater sky, he knew instantly that something was wrong.

    Binghe was plastered against his back, too big, too warm, his palm pressed to his chest over Shen Qingqiu’s heart as if needing, always, the confirmation that he was alive. Shen Qingqiu could feel his erection pressing against the curve of his lower back, knew that if he wanted to he could shift his hips, grind backwards, and Binghe would wake and be on him in moments, pulling the sleeping robes from his shoulders and latching his teeth into the column of Shen Qingqiu's throat, marking him, over and over, as his.

    So that was all normal. There was something else, something more abstract, that was off.

    In the first shining heat of summer, Zhou Zishu signed onto a twelve-month lease in a city she didn't know, and which didn't know her.

    Or, Wen Kexing bleaches a shower, Gu Xiang washes the sheets, Chengling goes dragon-spotting, and Zhou Zishu buys an orange.
