    Summary

    Wei Wuxian dies at twenty-two and doesn’t come back. Lan Wangji dies in an “unfortunate accident” in a temple in Yunping at thirty-seven. The world moves on.

    Thousands of years later, Wei Ying and Lan Zhan have a senior thesis in cultivation to co-write on the Yiling Patriarch. It doesn’t go exactly how they were expecting.
    -
    “I still do not understand why you were able to read the journal in the first place,” Lan Zhan says.

    Wei Ying grins. “You’ll laugh,” he says. He won’t, of course. Lan Zhan doesn’t laugh. But maybe he can swing a smile. “It’s because of the name thing. He wrote his name into the scrambling talisman. So it says that no one can undo the lock but Wei Ying.” He hooks a thumb at himself.

    Everyone’s always said his name is unlucky. This is the first time it’s worked out in his favor. It’s not a coincidence either; apparently his mother thought it would be funny. Mrs. Yu had told him that with a curl in her lip, as if it didn’t make him wish he knew his parents even more.

    Summary

    The aquarium is crowded, and loud, and Yukhei is so preoccupied trying to figure out if he's grossed out or intrigued by the specific shape of this one grey fish’s head, he almost misses it when Ten asks.

    "What?" Yukhei asks back.

    Ten isn't even looking at him, eyes tracing the blue glass of fish tunnel around them, but his body is angled back, like he’s offering Yukhei his ear, "Have you been on a date before?"

    That's what Yukhei thought he said.

    --

    Dubai realizations.

    “Namjoon told me you’d probably be haunting a corner. I didn’t know what he meant, but I think I get it now.” He’s breathing hard. “I knew you right away. You look really good, by the way.”

    Summary

    Every day, Yukhei wakes up to someone watching him. Every day, he watches Ten. And every day, they don’t talk and they don’t talk and they don’t talk until talking would be stranger than not talking, and Yukhei has to accept that his friend isn’t his friend anymore, he’s just a person that Yukhei fucked and hurt and will never touch again.
