    Summary

    Wei Wuxian laughs again. "Lan Zhan. Lan Wangji. Hanguang-jun. What an honor it is, to be graced by your presence today. Have you come to take me back to the Cloud Recesses with you?"

    He doesn’t say, please take me back. Doesn’t say, sometimes I wish you’d taken me back with you all those years ago.

    But Lan Zhan shakes his head, small and deliberate, the tiniest, most devastating shift in the world. Wei Wuxian exhales audibly.

    "Wei Ying. I have come to ask you to take me away with you."

    *

    Three years ago, Lan Wangji and Wei Wuxian saved the world. Now the world has moved on and they are left to pick themselves up and start anew. It takes them a while to figure it out. (A post-canon CQL getting together story.)

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian has lived in Gusu for nearly two years. Still, something about it feels temporary, delicate: one wrong step and it will crumble. Some part of him — tucked away, hidden in a corner of his mind — is waiting for the weight of reality to come crashing down. After all, every home he has ever had was taken from him. His parents, Lotus Pier, the Burial Mounds. All of them, gone.

    He thinks he might be cursed.

    (Or: a study on home and belonging.)

    Summary

    “Wei Ying,” Lan Wangji says again. His blood is buzzing in his ears, a rush like the ocean and maybe, terrifyingly, like hope. “What did you think I meant?”

    “I thought,” says Wei Ying. He falters. “I thought,” he says, unblinking, still staring at Lan Wangji’s shoulder, “that you meant. You. You and me.”

    Summary

    Through the window, boats drift in a mirror of the yawning sky, fringed with wide lotus leaves and the pale yellow blossoms that grow year-round. Geese call in the distance. And there again, drifting through the air—the scent of sesame shaobing, and hot dry noodles, and the sizzle-pop of frying oil. Like the heat-haze of summer, softened with time. Like the taste of home.

    Or, four meals Wei Wuxian shares during his travels, and one he shares with his soulmate.
