    Summary

    “It’s okay that you miss him,” said Lan Wangji, a familiar litany to them both by now. “Do you feel sad?”

    “I feel sad,” A-Yuan repeated, shoulders hitching with tiny hiccuping sniffs. “When is he coming back?”

    “I don’t know. I am not sure where he is.”

    But this seemed to frustrate A-Yuan. “Xian-gege! I miss him! Please, baba?” He looked up at him with wet cheeks and a wide, quivering frown. “Please baba can you ask him? I really miss him!” He sobbed again, heartbreakingly.

    It stabbed straight through him, cracking open the reservoir of loss and helplessness that was all his own. His child’s grief did that, sometimes. It always took him by surprise. He caught his breath sharply and gathered A-Yuan into his arms, holding him tight until the pain ebbed.

    “I will try,” he said softly into A-Yuan’s hair, when he could speak again. He never made uncertain promises and tried not even to raise uncertain hopes, but his son was hurting. His son believed he could make it better. He couldn’t not try.

    Wen Qing might at least know who this “Xian-gege” was. He would text her in the morning. It would be a start.

    Summary

    "He calls himself Shen Wei."

    Shen Wei stared at him and felt a wave of emptiness rush through him. The way he said his name, the name Kunlun himself had given him, it was as if it was something nasty and evil. What was this hell? Where was he?

    Shortly after Kunlun disappears in the wormhole, Shen Wei is pulled into a void and lands 10,000 years in the future — 6 years after the end of the war between Haixing and Dixing. In this unimaginable future, he reunites with his brother, makes new friends — and meets Zhao Yunlan, who might be a Kunlun who doesn't remember him.

    Summary

    "What if in all the worlds we met, I loved you?"

    Essek Week Day 1: Shadows
    What if you aren’t my darkest self? Essek asked any god who may actually exist, dizzy and cold in his panic. What if I am yours?
    Essek Week Day 2: Loneliness
    Maybe there hadn’t been a singular moment. Maybe there had been a thousand cracks, a thousand fissures, and a thousand dislocations. Maybe Essek had never been whole at all.
    Essek Week Day 3: Spy
    Who are you? Essek wanted to ask the scourger. When the people in Rexxentrum saw your potential, did you cower or bite the hand that fed you?
    Essek Week Day 4: Wine
    His voice was smooth with a lilting Xhorhassian accent that added such a depth of flavor to him, and there was something so desirable and timeless about him...as if he were a vintage of wine that never went out of style.
    Essek Week Day 5: Teaching
    “Caleb it is then. I cannot tell you how truly excited I am to be teaching with you this year. I look forward to it, truly, from the bottom of my heart."
    Essek Week Day 6: Possibilities
    “The Taskhand is...he’s cunning and intelligent...but more than that he’s ruthless.”
