    Summary

    Mingjue should have known something was wrong the minute Xichen walked in the door, but, to his credit, Xichen often came home rumpled and worse for wear. There wasn’t anything unusual about his flushed cheeks, his mussed hair, or the wrinkles in his expensive button-up shirt. But then, instead of meeting his eye, Xichen looked at the floor and fiddled with his keys, standing in the entryway of their home almost like he wasn’t sure he was ready to come in.
    “Da-ge,” he said, halting in a way Xichen basically never was. “I should tell you something.”

    Summary

    “He smiles too much,” Lan Wangji says, frowning at the pixelated headshot of the instructor. Flippancy is not necessarily forbidden, but it is strongly discouraged, especially when one is a thousand feet above ground instructing the light of someone else’s life.

     

    Lan Sizhui is going for his Sword Flight Licence. Lan Wangji is panicked.

    Summary

    “Do you know how old you are, a-Ying?”
    “This many,” Wei Ying said and held a hand out with three fingers up. He looked at his hand, considered for a minute, the point of his tongue sticking out between his teeth, put another finger up, then put it down, then up again, before he finally shrugged. “That many,” he said, as if he’d given them a satisfactory answer.

    Summary

    He lies in bed that night, staring at the silken canopy above him, the drawn curtains black and shapeless without light. He sleeps inside a void. Even the gold and silver dulls in the dark. Becomes only more thread.

    Summary

    Jonathan’s life was fine. He didn’t need other people. He studied them instead, like fire ants on the abandoned edge of the playground; carefully, with a stick and good shoes, watching their patterns and keeping his observations to himself, figuring out which ones to leave alone and which ones would make good surprises in bullies’ backpacks. Other people were tools, in the multiple definitions of the word. He used them. He didn’t like them. He didn’t need them. He was fine.

    All in all, it wasn’t difficult to stay a virgin until he turned thirty.

    A JGY-centric, Cherry Magic-inspired AU.
