    Summary

    In the middle of the warzone that was the Hejian front during the Sunshot Campaign, the Nie troops found a baby and deputy Meng Yao soothed him. He couldn't find someone to take care of the infant afterwards, though.

    Meng Yao couldn't leave him behind.

    Summary

    Something in the shield of the Sect Leader’s face changes. The rigid set of his jaw fades to something softer. Like this, he looks like the man of twenty-one he is, like he isn’t saddled by a weight of responsibility better suited to men three times his age.

    “You could…” he trails off, awkwardly clearing his throat. His eyes flick away. “I’ll find you a horse. Ride at my side.”

    What Meng Yao wouldn’t do to hear those words come from a different Sect Leader’s mouth. He used to dream of it as a boy, curled in the warmth of his mother’s embrace as she wove him tales of a life better than the one they carved out of the dusty brothel floor.

    He wonders if this would be enough for her. If this is enough for himself.

    -

    Meng Yao’s first hundred days as the Vice-General of the Qinghe Nie Sect.

    Summary

    The first stroke is light, light like Nie Mingjue’s feathery touch on the sharp jut of Meng Yao’s hip as their smaller lover slept peacefully at their side.

    Lan Xichen closes his eyes and lets memory spill on the canvas.

    Or, Xichen paints Mingjue sliding inside a half-asleep Meng Yao on a lazy morning.
