    Summary

    It can’t be that bad, he thinks. There’s no way he would have done that. But the doubt still lingers, turning into full-blown anxiety as he scrolls down his twitter feed, finally arriving on his latest tweet.

    Lan WangJi ✔ @lan_wangji

    Some of you have never fallen in love with a boy only for him to go missing after his parents die and pine away for three years waiting for him to come back, then continue to pine when he’s back after you realize you’re too scared to confess, and it shows.

    Lan Zhan’s face pales and he buries his head in his hands, letting his phone drop on the table.

    This is bad.

    This is very, very bad.

    -

    Or, Lan Wangji gets drunk and tweets a love confession, Wei Wuxian panics, and all of twitter decides to matchmake Lan Wangji and his mystery guy.

    Summary

    Wei Ying is a poor fisherman, barely surviving on what he can catch in the marshes when he comes across a crane tangled in a net.

    or

    Lan Zhan is a ghost in his house, some strange miracle, a hallucination that somehow has flesh and so Wei Ying gives himself to him and gives himself to him because that is what you do with dreams you do not wish to wake from.

    Summary

    There are times that Lan Wangji remembers, when the Jingshi was frozen into silence; when the days stretched out, endless and empty, a barren expanse; times when Lan Wangji felt himself frozen into silence. Sizhui and Xiongzhang helped, but they inevitably left and then it crept back along the edges of the house like frost.

     

     

    But now, his days are filled with Wei Ying. No matter what happens, Lan Wangji cannot regret that.

     

     

    Winter in Cloud Recesses, a mysterious curse, and the shadows of the past.

    Summary

    “It is hard to write a beautiful song. It is harder to write several individually beautiful songs that, when sung simultaneously, sound as a more beautiful polyphonic whole.” (John Rahn)

    In music, counterpoint is the relationship between two or more musical lines that are independent melodies, yet harmonically interdependent.

    Lan Wangji, the principal cellist in his orchestra, finds himself performing JS Bach’s Art of Fugue with a student string quartet one semester and falls in love with the ways his life intersects with that of the lead violinist.

    Wei Wuxian, a composition major, finds himself echoing that sentiment, and their story takes on all the complexity and fascination of the very fugues they are learning.

    Summary

    Lan Xichen said, “Time for regrowth and mourning is, of course, the most important. But there has also been a—frequent—discussion of marriage.” He paused to drink more tea. He almost seemed apologetic when he added, “Your name has been brought up often.”

    “For marriage,” Lan Wangji repeated.

    Except with Wei Ying in the picture, nothing goes exactly as planned.
