    Summary

    Wei Wuxian needs to get more exercise.

    At least, that's what Wen Qing tells him after his blood pressure reaches "accidental head injury from dizziness" levels.

    He agrees, with the intention of "working out" meaning a few lazy pool laps and then a stint in the sauna.

    That is, until he's given the ground tour of the gym by Lan Wangji, personal trainer and professional sexy man.

    “I’d like to join the gym. Is there a deal for a personal training package?”

    Summary

    It feels so indulgent, almost animalistic, to reduce himself to a creature of pure sensation like this, to not worry about his posture or his words or what his face is doing. Xichen here is nothing more than a body, than his desire, all his vaunted restraint focused into this most basic of acts—keep touching, but don't come.

    Lan Xichen sometimes takes the day off just to edge himself for hours... and then one day, he receives a surprise visitor.

    Summary

    Meng Yao glances out at the passing green fields, trees a blur as they move past them. "A band needs talent but it also needs wide appeal. A band is built around basic archetypes, and you fit that very well."

    Wei Ying scrabbles through the pile of plastic packets and empty wrappers on the seat beside him. He finds an unopened bag of peanuts and holds them up triumphantly. "A band needs to fit into Teen Vogue. The bad boy, the fun guy, the baby. The soulful, artistic one. The boring, good one."

    "I'm not boring," Jin Zixuan says sulkily. It honestly proves Wei Ying's point.

    Summary

    "Your predecessor had your advantage in memory, attention to detail, organization, and support from the major sects." Ah, here was the disapproval Nie Huaisang had anticipated. Lan Qiren's expression was severe, his lips pressing briefly together. He continued, "Though you have done well for yourself, you cannot be expected to carry this burden alone. For that reason, in six month's time, I will be retiring from my current position in the Lan Sect."

    What. That didn't follow at all.

    "At that time, I will accept your invitation and take up the position you have offered." Lan Qiren's eyes were intent, boring into Nie Huaisang. "Though I expect you to continue without my assistance until then, you may write, both for advice and to get to know one another better." Lan Qiren steepled his fingers on the table between them. "Is that acceptable?"

    "You're saying yes," Nie Huaisang said slowly, "to the position I offered."

    "Yes."

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian gets caught sneaking into Cloud Recesses.

    But since he can't tell the truth - that he's just here to deliver his teacher's most recent love letter to her soulmate who's stuck in a cave - he tells a lie instead. He says that he's a Jiang disciple that had arrived late and so had snuck in through the gates. He hadn't expected the lie to work, sure that it would unravel as soon as they found a Jiang to verify it, but instead Jiang Yanli backs up his story, and even adds to it.

    Which is how he ends up masquerading as the first disciple of Lotus Pier while trying to figure out how to get out of Cloud Recesses without anyone discovering that he's the disciple of Baoshan Sanren.
