    [Book 5 Spoilers Within]

    Once, the emperor of heaven saw that his troublesome successor had what he had always desired so dearly. To teach him a priceless lesson, he took it for himself.

    Hua Cheng faithfully serves the god who saved him as a child— the one he has worshiped for 800 years— the one to whom he gifted his ashes: The Heavenly Emperor, Jun Wu.

    Xie Lian just wants his beloved back, no matter what it costs him.

    Summary

    It’s fine. Lan Zhan is here with him. Lan Zhan is making a pocket for Wei Ying to stand inside so he can regain his composure. Lan Zhan is… reaching for the cup of wine that Jin Zixun is trying to hand to Wei Ying.

    In what is a clear case of Wei Ying’s patented One Shot Swallow trademark infringement, Lan Zhan throws back the cup, barely coughing, and hands it back.

    Summary

    Xichen smiles, the first true smile Lan Wangji has seen in years. It brightens his whole face, smudges his graceful mask and makes it alive again.

    “So it would not be too bad?”

    Lan Wangji frowns in mute incomprehension.

    “To be married to him, Wangji. We want to propose an alliance.”

    //

    Five years after the end of the Sunshot Campaign, the Yiling Patriarch has only grown in strength. Desperate to avoid another war, the Emperor proposes that he marry his younger brother, Lan Wangji, hoping to consolidate his power and take the Stygian Tiger Seal for the throne. He doesn't realise that Lan Wangji has never stopped being in love with Wei Wuxian, or what this marriage will mean to them both.

    Summary

    “Cloud Reccesses Apiary,” says a toneless, deep masculine voice, with zero question in it. Wei Ying doesn’t care, because whoever possesses that voice is probably going to come save him from bees like a fucking hero while wearing like, a suit of armor. That’s what you wear to catch bees, right?

    “I have like, so many bees outside my front door right now,” he says, mouth running out ahead of him before he can even begin to think about reining it in. “It’s like a sandstorm of bees out there. There are so many bees. I got out of my car and there were just bees and I don’t want these bees. Do you want these bees? Please tell me you will come get these bees. I can’t leave my house and I have enough food for maybe a week but then I’m gonna have to learn how to cook dry beans and no one wants that, especially not me.” Wei Ying runs out of air, takes a breath, and belatedly adds, “My name is Wei Ying. Hi.”

    Or: The beekeeping AU that no one asked for.
