    Summary

    They stay that way for a long time, Catra’s face tucked into Adora’s shoulder, Adora gently cradling Catra’s head. Adora is careful not to hug Catra too hard or make her feel restrained, anticipating the moment that Catra will start to pull away — but Catra doesn’t. She hangs on so tightly it hurts, her claws digging through Adora’s jacket and into her back, latching into her like she did when she was a kitten and didn’t know how much her claws could hurt. Adora tries not to wince, tries not to move a single muscle, worried that if she does the spell will break and Catra will struggle away, appalled at having shown weakness.

    But Catra doesn’t let go. And so neither does Adora.

    Summary

    When they were still innocents in Yunmeng, Wei Ying and Jiang Cheng gave gag gifts to each other on their birthdays. Wei Ying has been trying to revive this tradition for the past four years, to no avail. This time though, he has just the right gift for his once-sworn brother.

    He just hopes Jiang Cheng won’t shoot the messenger in the process.

    Summary

    He already looks a mess, hair soft and tangled from Jiang Cheng’s rough treatment, lips kiss-bruised and bitten, tear tracks staining flushed cheeks. His blue-green eyes are beginning to grow hazy.

    And they’ve only just started.

    Summary

    “Thirty-three whips to his back,” says Lan Xichen. “Three years of forced seclusion.”

    A murmur of approval courses around the room. Jiang Cheng’s fists clench. 

    The punishment is cruel, yes, but not entirely so. Three years of seclusion means time alone, undisturbed. Time to grieve without being forced into the disturbingly brutal realm of sect politics. It’s nothing compared to the punishment Jiang Cheng is subjected to—that is, living the rest of his life as Yunmeng Jiang’s leader without his family.

    (Or, Jiang Cheng’s grief, thirteen years and beyond.)
