Pain makes itself present just behind Kalim’s ribs, stinging horribly with every joyous round of laughter he hears. It beats faster than normal, slamming against the front of his chest in a way that he can hear it in his ears. If he didn’t know better, Kalim might worry that everyone in the palace could hear it too.
Jamil pretends to be in love with an assassin to take her out. Kalim doesn't know this. Angst ensues.

If anyone could manage time travel, it would be the Yiling Patriarch, but Mo XuanYu had spent years studying the notes. That ritual should not have performed time travel. It was a body exchange ritual and even if he had somehow messed it up, it should have just resulted in his death and not in time travel!
AKA: the time travel fix-it in which Mo XuanYu is both confused and self-centered.

Mo XuanYu’s Bewildering Re-Start
Wangxianficrecs post here. (Archived.)
Oh, well now, this was so interesting. Mo Xuanyu's ritual ends up with him back in his 4-year-old body (and his 4-year-old time, 15 years ago) except with a golden core that wwx had been cultivating for 30 years. And lo, here is the Yiling Patriarch himself, here to straighten things out.
Mo Xuanyu, who is still 19 inside his new, teeny, 4-year-old body, doesn't put up with his mother's go-see-your-father tripe, but IS forced to hang out with the Wen branch elders while wwx and Wen Qing go off to... deal with Wen Rouhan.
In a change from other time travel stories, both wwx and mxy are very clear and up front about who they are and from where. And mxy is actually kind of pissed at wwx because he was killing himself FOR A REASON and really doesn't want to have to do it all over again.
Things work out, because of course they do. I really enjoyed this twisty little take on a time travel fix-it. (Particularly the way wwx handles Lan Qiren, Lan Xichen and Lan Wangji -- whose response is both beautiful and classic.
“Ah,” his mother looked down somewhat shamefaced. “The men from the Jin Sect who came to take him for training said they weren’t healers and couldn’t take a child who might die so soon.” She whispered, but then perked up, “But now they must surely take him! Already with a golden core! That’s really impressive, isn’t it?”
“Hmm.” the doctor said.
“Well, that’s too bad for them,” someone else said, a smiling young man, with cheerful insincerity. “The Jin Sect lost their chance to have him. Because now he’s mine.”
“What?” His mother’s confusion echoed his own, but the young man spoke directly to Mo XuanYu when he responded.
“Do you know who I am?” The young man asked. And just, how was Mo XuanYu supposed to know this guy? He wasn’t from a Mo village and all of the people XuanYu knew were apparently in the future, because that’s what he was getting out of this insanity. His mother was alive, the Wen Sect still existed, and he was a child. He was in the past. Somehow.
If he knew this guy, he’d be in his thirties and Mo XuanYu didn’t know that many guys in their thirties. And even fewer cultivators because the war had killed most of that generation.
“You’ll probably die in the war.” Mo XuanYu said, because he was a child and he should have been dead and what did he even care about making a good impression on a teenager who would be dead within the next ten years.
Instead of being either offended or scared, the guy laughed.
“Well, you’re not wrong!” And he laughed again, his eyes squinting in humor.
