    Summary

    “I propose that we kill two birds with one stone,” Liu Mingyan said, and if her tone goes a bit theatrical, Jiang Cheng had the decency not to point it out.

    “I don’t follow,” Jiang Cheng deadpanned, crossing his arms. “I thought the plan was to milk this whole thing for what it’s worth and gracefully part ways when it inevitably fell apart.”

    “Yes, well. There’s a perfectly viable solution to the whole ‘falling apart’ part - you,” she said, pointing to Jiang Cheng, “Marry my brother.”

    --

    Jiang Cheng gets married in the spring of his 39th year. It turns out better than he expected.

    Summary

    Shang Qinghua goes to take a self-indulgent peek at his baby protagonist son and gets a kick to the shrivelled heart for his troubles. He gave up on changing the story years ago! Yet he finds himself helping his protagonist son's adoptive mother anyway. Just this one change won't matter too much, right?

    One little change leads to more. Shang Qinghua never meant to care, but he becomes invested in making sure that his new family survives the looming plot. With the changes to the world cascading around him, with his position as a traitor pulling him between his sect and a certain ice demon, and with the protagonist growing up so quickly, how is one displaced author meant to ensure that everything turns out all right?

    A Pre-Canon to Canon Divergence story.

    Summary

    "A-Chan!" His mother calls him over excitedly. "You have been invited to the guest lectures at the Cloud Recesses!" And then she gasps as she reads on. "And to the guest lectures at Lotus Pier!" she exclaims. "A-Chan, what an honour!"

    "But -" he starts.

    "No buts," his mother says, smiling. "This really is an honour, A-Chan. Only the best are invited to both of the guest lectures. You shall have to have new robes..."

    Jin Chan is going to die.
