    Summary

    “You’ve been exposed to a novel form of radiation,” M'Benga explains. “It seems to prevent you from sleeping, and yet requires sleep in order to leave your system. One thousand hours of it, by my estimate.”

    “Hell of a catch-22,” Jim jokes, but his smile feels weak.

    “Indeed,” M’Benga agrees, somber. “It’s lucky we have a Vulcan on the crew – we've found that despite the radiation, you’re able to sleep with the assistance of a meld.”

    Summary

    Jingyi tried to compose a note to Hanguang-jun, knowing they should get word to Cloud Recesses as soon as possible. But with a talisman message he had to get it all straight in his head before he started. Normally that wasn't a problem.

    To Hanguang-jun, Chief Cultivator, from this disciple Lan Jingyi. First, no one is dead. Except the water ghouls, by definition, they're all dead. And also destroyed. Second, we are at-- Uh, I'm not actually sure where we are--

    Summary

    By his second night in the Yiling Burial Mounds with the Wen Remnants, Wei Wuxian knows he has to do something drastic to make sure the people he's responsible for now not only survive, but thrive.

    And since people already condemn the Yiling Patriarch for starting his own sect, well. It might be the way to go.

    Summary

    “That’s your dad?” Jingyi asks slowly.

    “Yes?” Sizhui sits up a little, propped on his elbows. He feels wrong-footed, and glances back at the picture for some sort of hint as to what’s going on. “Why?”

    Jingyi sits up, too, and hands the phone back.

    “Your dad is my dad’s ex-husband,” he says bluntly. “Come on. Get your jacket. We’ll need ice cream for this one.”

    It’s a very strange way to have your life turned completely upside down, Sizhui thinks.

    Summary

    “I won’t have you going all the way to California by yourself,” Yanli says in her most eldest-sibling tone of voice. “I won’t have it, A-Ying.”

    “I am a grown-up,” Wei Ying points out gently, with all the wisdom of his twenty-four years. “I pay bills and have a job I hate and everything. And I won’t be by myself, I’ll have A-Qing and A-Ning.”

    “And me, obviously,” Jiang Cheng grumbles. Wei Ying whips around to stare at him.

    “Oh,” Yanli says, a blanket of relief rolling across her face. “Oh, of course.”

    “You can’t,” Wei Ying hisses at him, looking more panicked now than he has all night. “Your mother—”

    “Okay, first of all, don’t tell me what I can and can’t do,” Jiang Cheng bites back, prickly with worry for the Wens and worry for his idiot brother. “Secondly, you, going by yourself, is not an option. It’s off the table. It was never on the table. Stupid,” he adds, on principle.


    Wei Ying’s friends are at rock-bottom, and he puts his life on hold to help them put theirs back together. To absolutely no one’s surprise except Wei Ying’s, his family goes with him.
