    Summary

    Wei Ying uses his smile and bright laughs like a folding screen, like one of Nie Huaisang's many fans, but Lan Wangji sees. He sees the network of lightning and raised skin on the boy's back, sees his smile falter with every barbed reprimand from Jiang Wanyin and the way he constantly skirts around the border of things, as if he has to constantly know the point where he is unwanted.

    He looks at Wei Ying and sees a future of squandered potentials and a brightness curbed at every turn, of a life making himself less in a Sect that would always see him as a servant's son and the reflection of their own inadequacy, and he laments that Wei Ying could not seem to see that - See past the sense of debt and false belonging his so-called family had ingrained into him.

    But Lan Wangji is a patient man, and he would make Wei Ying see in time. Even if it means using the insecurities of Wei Ying's own family against him.

    Summary

    “I mean, it’s not the worst place to have been dumped in. We could have ended up in like, a zombie apocalypse or something.”

    “You would have died first,” Xiao Zhan commented off-handedly, digging his heels lightly into his horse's flank.

    Yibo made a low, offended noise behind him, pulling up next to Xiao Zhan on his own horse with his mouth already parted to respond.

    “I would not.”

    “Would to.”

    “Would not. The only reason I would die would be because I was protecting Lao Xiao.”

    “Wang Yibo!” Xiao Zhan’s face suddenly felt very hot, “don’t lie.”

    “Lying is forbidden in the Lan Sect,” and then Wang Yibo kicked his horse into a trot, leaving Xiao Zhan staring at his retreating back with a warm face and an even warmer feeling in his heart.

    Summary

    Harry Potter, newly appointed Captain of the Marauder and son of the famous Captain James Potter, was falling apart at the seams. His crew didn’t respect him, he was lost in the empty expanse of space, nightmares plagued his sleep, and his Commander deserved the Captain position more than he did. Good thing multiple attempts on his life and a vicious warlord after his head was all it took to turn it all around.

    Alternatively, that space fic in which Harry Potter almost dies too many times, Tom Riddle slowly becomes the most smitten fool on the ship, and the rest of the crew are all just a bunch of assholes with popcorn watching the show. And exploding ships, don't forget the exploding ships.

    Summary

    His long hair, gathered into a braid, is perfectly in place, not a wrinkle on his fancy clothes. He must be older than Wei Ying, although he couldn’t tell by how much. The unnatural perfection is what had attracted Wei Ying to him in the first place: in the flashing lights of the club, he had looked like a jade statue. Nie Huaisang, noticing where Wei Ying’s eyes had drifted to, had dared him to ask the guy to dance and well. The rest is history.

    *

    Wei Ying hooks up with a hot stranger on a night out; the last thing he expects is to see him again on the first day at his new job.
