Work Text:

Five years into their cohabitation is long enough for Shen San to have worked out a crude way to make paper out of pulped wood; a week before the new year, he presses several sheets and soaks them in a red berry juice. Wei eyes them with curiosity, but lets Shen San work without questions.

It isn't a masterpiece or anything but Shen San thinks he does a pretty good job. Plum blossoms, for his plum blossom spirit -- he laughs as Wei blushes at the incorrect address. Above, the dark night sky stretches endlessly, pinpricked with a river of stars.
