    Summary

    When Meng Yao was thrown down the stairs in Jinlin Tower, no one had looked twice at her.

    It was only later, when one of the servants came to collect her at the bottom of the stairs, to pick her up and brush off the dirt and blood and explain with a smile that it was only a matter of saving face – that it was the legitimate young master’s birthday that day – that her father’s wife was jealous and required pacification – that of course she was welcome, a proper part of Lanling Jin, her father’s daughter, and entitled to all the rights and privileges thereof – that the looks started.

    Looks of pity.

    Summary

    When it turned out to be Jin Guangyao’s ghost that appeared in the revealing array designed to show Nie Huaisang the identity of the ghost that was haunting him, Nie Huaisang wasn’t even surprised.

    After all, who else would bear him the sort of grudge that persisted beyond death? He was fundamentally harmless – to most people.

    Summary

    “But why?” Jin Guangyao persisted. “Why do you think musical cultivation, even if not the Song of Clarity in specific, directed directly at you won’t affect you?”

    “Well,” Nie Mingjue said, and coughed. “That would be because I’m deaf.”

    “…you’re what?!”

    Summary

    The Nie sect leaders were doomed to not only to particularly dire qi deviations and inevitable death on account not only of their cultivation method, but to a duty from the heavens to stop the calamities that threatened the world; it was their fate, their inheritance, and even, it was said, that it was the trade they had struck, in order to save the rest of their sect from suffering the same fate they did. And, yes, the more exceptional the sect leader, the more talented, the greater the calamity they would face, which meant that Nie Mingjue’s calamity would be especially dire, but…why did he care about that? Nie Mingjue had never shied away from a challenge before.

    Even if the challenge here was likely to be his younger brother, Nie Huaisang – a fox-child, with his mother’s eyes, and dangerous with it.

    Summary

    The thing was, Meng Yao had arrived at the Nie sect just fine. He’d made it and been accepted on the basis of his willingness to put in the hard work to learn cultivation during wartime, he had maneuvered the situation such that he could contribute to the war in a way that would catch notice in a way his martial skills couldn’t, he had even managed to snag a position of influence the way he’d intended…perhaps slightly faster than intended, but knowing how to take advantage of opportunities was also a skill. At any rate, that had all worked just right and according to plan.

    He just couldn’t get out.
