    Summary

    Wei Wuxian drops his hand, leans one shoulder into the stunted door frame. “Oh. Okay. So. Why are you here, exactly?”

    “The Institute sent me to assist you,” the ridiculously beautiful cardigan owner says, “as your familiar.”

    Wei Wuxian laughs as if it’s a joke, although the man’s stony expression makes it clear that any humor gleaned from him is likely unintentional.

    “Well, uh, I appreciate your,” Wei Wuxian says, “you know, time, but everything is under control here, actually.”

    With impeccable timing, a tea-kettle sound keens from the kitchen, followed by a contained bang.

    Or: Wei Wuxian is a witch, Lan Wangji is sent to be his familiar. They figure it out.

    Summary

    Wei Ying lets out a long, ugly groan. “I am fine, Lan Zhan. Everybody is overreacting, it’s so embarrassing for all of you.”

    “You had undiagnosed pneumonia, which you walked around with for weeks until you passed out during dress,” Lan Wangji corrects him. “It got a big laugh, until everyone thought you were dead.”

    He keeps his voice even and does not tell Wei Ying that it had been Lan Wangji who caught him, who called the ambulance, and who rode with him to the hospital, where he was yelled at by nurses who wanted to know why he hadn’t noticed that Wei Ying couldn’t stop shivering or string proper sentences together.

    “Rumors of my demise have been vastly overstated,” Wei Ying says. “Anyway, I’m already feeling much better. Basically fine. Really almost completely back to normal, so stop babying me and tell me why the fuck you let your stupid brother hire the worst man in the world to host our show.”

    Summary

    Progress was the natural goal of any alchemist. To learn, to improve, to grow. It only made sense that Ed could chart his and Mustang’s over the years like a tangible thing. Then again, when you started at the bottom, the only way to go was up.

    Or: five times their touch led to goodbye, and the one time it didn’t.

    Summary

    (A talking-head interview. JIN ZIXUN, 36, entrepreneur.)

    JZX: Oh, yeah, he’s a fucking catch, alright. He’s rich, he’s hot, he’s a Lan. Like, he’s been ranked number two among the local bachelors for years, and now that his brother’s seeing someone, he’s number one, right? So, yeah, of course I want to win.

    Offscreen voice: Do you know anything else about him, besides that he’s rich and hot?

    JZX: (shrugging) What else is there to know?

    In which Lan Wangji agrees, reluctantly, to be The Bachelor, only to fall in love with Wei Wuxian, his cameraman/producer. Can the Bachelor find his way to a happy ending? And will The Bachelor: Lan Wangji be a ratings hit?

    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.
