    Summary

    Wei Ying first hears about the ball over dinner.

    "They're trying to marry off Second Prince," Fourth Uncle says, through a mouthful of stew. "There is going to be a ball, for all the gentry." "Everybody who's rich and titled, who's got a son or daughter the right age, will be invited. Second Prince will pick someone out."

    "He's probably very stuffy and full of himself!" Wei Ying snorts. "I pity whoever has to marry him!"

    (In which Wei Ying, a fugitive from justice, sneaks into the palace, steals from the imperial family, and eats his words.

    AKA, yet another Cinderella AU.)

    Summary

    Yiling Laozu was dead, and the cultivation world rejoiced. Now it was time to rest and finally heal the wounds left by the Sunshot Campaign.

    In their absence, the countryside grew more dangerous with each passing day. Rogue cultivators stepped in soon enough. Rumour had it that amongst them, there was one who went where no one else dared to go, all but for a place to sleep and a meal for his children. Rumour had it a crow rode on his shoulder. Rumour had it he disappeared into the shadows whenever someone so much as mentioned the four great Sects.

    Rumour had it he was a ghost.

    ***
    A story of a single father, his two kids, a daydreaming disciple, and a pet crow as seen through the eyes of others.

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian barely makes a sound when Jin Zixun’s sword goes through his chest. A tiny noise is punched out of him — half gasp, half sigh. Jin Zixun, wearing that smirk that Lan Wangji has always hated, moves to pull the sword out.

    This won’t do; Lan Wangji knows enough about battlefield medicine to understand the principle of keeping the weapon in the wound until a medic arrives. So he does the only thing that occurs to him in the moment, letting the momentum of flight be the force behind the swing; he cuts off Jin Zixun’s hand.

    -

    Lan Wangji goes with Wei Wuxian to his nephew's one-month celebration instead of Wen Ning. They still don't make it to the party.

    Summary

    It'd been a year since Jin Guangyao died.
    Wei Wuxian is back at Cloud Recesses.
    Lan Qiren realises that Wei Wuxian is not so bad after all, and that perhaps Wei Wuxian's particular brand of brotherhood is exactly what his grieving eldest nephew needs.

    (Lan Qiren protects his family. Seventeen years ago, that family grew to include Lan Yuan. Now? Now, it grows to include Wei Wuxian. Eventually. If the idiots (and he thinks this with fondness) will hurry up and confess.)

    A look at Lan Wangji and Wei Wuxian, and Lan Xichen, post-canon, from the perspective of Lan Qiren
