To end the war they inherited, Keith marries the King he lead an army against.
“You know, we met once,” the king continues, voice closer, and Keith almost turns. They met many times on the field—but then the king clarifies with a single word. “Before.”
Before he was a king. Maybe before he was a general. Keith has traced his rise like the growth of a seed he planted in clay and never expected to see again for how poorly he sowed it. None of this would have been possible without Keith—not the war, not a line soldier's battlefield promotion, not the end of it all, tied up so neatly by all Keith’s best mistakes. Not the killing, either. The king is right about that much, at least.

Ghosts won't stop giving Xie Lian flowers, Hua Cheng won't stop teasing, and Xie Lian is out here doing his best, man.
Xie Lian is momentarily frozen. Outside of heaven, no one calls him Highness except in jest, and there was a time people threw flowers at his feet as if to make a carpet for him to walk upon, but those years are long past. “Thank you. This is a—a princely gift.”
The spirit’s black-pit eyes go wide and then he grins, revealing long, wicked teeth the color of tarnished silver. “Yes! Yes, I knew it was meant for his Highness.” The spirit nods to Hua Cheng, too, whose grin has widened to something almost obscene.
“Truly,” Hua Cheng agrees.

“It's a song for asking questions.”
“Oh. Asking who?”
The boy shuffles back and forth and then reaches out as if he’s going to pluck a string before he pulls back his hand. Lan Wangji holds it out to him in offer and he makes one hesitant note with his little finger before he asks, “Who died?”
Shiro gets his groove back.
“We got divorced,” Shiro explains. Two days ago, he doesn’t say. The breakup was months before anyway. “Just me and the cats now.”
Keith is still staring at his hand. When he speaks, his voice is rough. “Cats, huh? Wasn’t enough to pilot one?”
It startles a laugh out of Shiro. “These are less well behaved.”
Keith smiles. “That's hard to believe.”

Daibazaal isn't the only thing that comes back.
“You're alive,” the boy says with a softness that doesn't fit this place. He reaches out, draws a lock of Lotor's hair toward him. It's too long. It's too dark. The boy's face is a marvel at the sight of it. “What do you remember?” the boy asks.
Everything. Fire and a wholesale destruction that wrecked more than a planet, that shattered something in him, that birthed something new. A thousand tiny slights, the constant struggle, until all that was left in him was the desire to make something burn, too. The rippling surge of quintessence across his skin and then through it, through him, down his veins, bending his form, reordering his cells until he was molded into something bigger than himself. It felt inevitable.
“Nothing,” Lotor whispers past cracked lips. “I remember nothing.”
