    Summary

    "Who can I go to for the sake of righting the Jin sect’s wrongs, Senior Lan? There’s no one, and that’s why I fled to the Burial Mounds.”

    “All the same,” Lan Qiren says, looking around at the dank cave and then at the child nodding towards sleep in Wei Wuxian’s lap, “you can hardly stay here, Wei Wuxian. I saw that your people were trying to farm on the slope behind the forest, but I doubt their efforts will bear fruit. What will you eat?”

    “When people are hungry enough,” Wei Wuxian says distantly, “they will eat anything.”
    __

    After Wei Wuxian's flight from the camp at Qiongqi Dao, Lan Qiren visits the Burial Mounds and discovers that he has bigger problems than his nephew's broken heart.

    Naturally, this changes things.

    Summary

    “Well,” Stiles says, “if they’re going to hunt werewolves, I’m going to hunt them.”

    It’s a ridiculous statement from a ten-year-old, but he’s obviously one hundred percent sincere. For the first time since the fire, Peter feels life stir inside him, feels purpose. It’s kismet, clearly. He’ll never meet the child he would have had with Olivia. Instead he’s met this boy, this brilliant, determined, cynical child with a world of potential.

    Peter kneels down in front of him so they’re at eye level. “How do you feel about doing that together?”

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian has his first kiss stolen from him on Phoenix Mountain. He goes to steal it back.

    (Or, Wei Wuxian briefly gains a second brain cell, realizes Lan Wangji is the person who kissed him, gets a second kiss, and this somehow changes everything.)

    Summary

    Lan Wangji does not mean to return to Yiling.

    Nothing grows on the Burial Mounds. In the natural world, grave sites are fertile ground for new growth, the decay of human bodies providing rich food for both animal and plant life, but the resentful energy of the murdered piled in their mass graves leeches life out of anything that tries to take root here.

    But here is a tree, alive amongst all the husks, small and with sprouting leaves. It's not even the right season for sprouting leaves.

    -
    Canon divergence where Lan Wangji returns to the Burial Mounds a few months after he bumped into Wei Wuxian and A-Yuan there the first time.

    Summary

    “A-Sang,” Lan Huan greets, and Mingjue turns to look at him. Lan Huan smiles reassuringly, then inclines his head towards the newcomer. “This is Mingjue.”

    A-Sang hesitates, then inhales sharply before smiling at Mingjue. It’s a nice smile, and something in Mingjue tells him, you’re safe here, with them, and he smiles back.

    “It is a pleasure to meet you,” Mingjue says seriously, because Mother would be upset with him if he wasn’t polite. “My little brother is called A-Sang too.”

    What if instead of dying, Nie Mingjue regressed in age from the qi deviation?
