    Summary

    “What’s with all the ruckus, eh?” Wei Wuxian asks as he opens the Jingshi door, to be met with the red, sweaty faces of Ouyang Zizhen and Jin Ling. “Can’t you be a little nicer at this hour of the morning?”

    The two share a look between them.

    “Senior Wei,” Ouyang Zizhen says, eyes wide and desperate, looking halfway close to tears, “Sizhui and Jingyi are missing.”

    When Sizhui and Jingyi go missing during a routine night hunt, Wei Wuxian and Lan Wangji follow a trail that leads them back to their son. On the way, their past catches up to them.

    Summary

    "...For me?" Jin Ling looks bewildered. "You don't have to, I can buy it myself."

    "We know. You could probably buy the whole shop," says Jingyi, not unkindly. "That's not the point."

    "I don't understand," says Jin Ling.

    "It's pretty. It would look nice on you. And also I would like to give it to you. Sometimes it's just that simple." says Sizhui.
     
    Post-canon casefic after Sizhui is back from his year's travels in Qishan.

    Summary

    "You are a blessing, thank you, you glorious woman," says Jiang Yanli. She rips the packet of paracetamol open and swallows the pills dry. "Makeup wipes, painkillers… what else do you have in that bag, an end to today's discussion?"

    "I might just," Wen Qing says with a grin. Her cheeks are pink. "But I'm not sure how well everyone would take 'environmental advocacy, focusing on actual cultivation instead of demonstrations for tourists, and redistricting based on sect capacity for interceding on supernatural events' as a proposal. Especially coming from the Yiling Burial Mounds group."

    In the middle of yet another unending cultivation conference, Wei Wuxian goes to Jiang Yanli and asks for her help getting Yiling Burial Mounds recognized by the rest of the cultivation world. Striking up a flirtation with his gorgeous right-hand woman, Wen Qing, isn't necessarily essential to an alliance between YunmengJiang and Yiling Burial Mounds, but it's certainly a perk.

    Summary

    “....hi everyone,” Jiang Cheng grumbles, trying not to look at Huaisang’s phone when she leans in and gives her girlfriend a quick good morning kiss. The sudden non-stop buzzing indicates the flood of ‘likes’ Huaisang’s instagram watchers are directing their way.

    “They like you,” Huaisang says, mouth a sweet little smirk that makes Jiang Cheng flush when she sees it in the mirror. “Not as much as I do, though.”
