    Summary

    It happens too fast.

    A-Xian cries out, a garbled sound of pain, and Jiang Yanli stares at her brother in shock as he crumples. She can feel A-Cheng tense behind her as they both watch in muted horror as the sword that stabbed their brother is yanked free. And before she can even form the thought, she’s throwing herself forward over A-Xian; a protective barrier.

    Her back screams in protest, but she cannot let A-Xian die.

    Or, Jiang Yanli lives and attempts the impossible by bringing her son and both of her little brothers back home, the rest of the cultivation world be damned.

    Summary

    The first intrusion was the beeping— medical-grade, reassuring, insistent.

    It was familiar, like her heartbeat. That rushed in next, the pulse of blood pushing away the sheltering dark. Light filtered in through her eyelids, violet and soothing, for one long sustained breath, and then her entire left side erupted into one giant itch.

    Shit.

    "Guess who got blown uppppp," crooned a staticky voice, and that was enough to place her. If she’d still been in Io General’s ICU, Will's voice with that same sing-song tone would be coming at her, sure, but from an uncomfortable plastic chair next to her and not from the neuro-comm embroidered into her synapses.

    Summary

    Nine moons have passed since BloodClan was driven from the forest, nine moons in which ThunderClan has flourished. A new generation of warriors have begun their training, and young Bramblepaw already shows great promise. But all is not peaceful.

    As a devastating fire sweeps through the forest, other forces are working against the clans. Darkstripe, loyal devotee of Tigerstar himself, survived that last battle through mysterious means. As the chill of leaf-bare draws closer, the peace that ThunderClan has enjoyed is shattered, under attack from without - and within.

    Summary

    It’s an instinctive thing, the kind of reflexive jab they’ve been giving each other since Wei Wuxian came to Lotus Pier. It’s not like it ever hurts Wei Wuxian; even with a spark of Jiang Cheng’s qi behind it, Wei Wuxian has more than enough to flick the force off like a gnat.

    He falls.

    ---

    canon divergent from ep 24: Jiang Cheng finds out about Wei Wuxian's core. Somehow that doesn't solve everything.
