    Summary

    Next to Wilbur’s elbow, one of the candle flames started to grow in size and stretch, almost curiously, towards him. Tommy’s eyes widened and he snapped his fingers together. Like a chastened pet, the fire shrunk back to a manageable size

    “Maybe I should put those out,” Tommy said quickly. “It’s windy.”

    Outside, the air was heavy and the leaves in the trees hung listlessly.

    Tommy is busy trying to save the city, and Wilbur is just trying to figure out what’s going on and why Tommy keeps giving him crystals and using all the salt to make protection runes around the house.

    Summary

    The potato war came and went. Techno won, not by fighting, but by watching and farming and cultivating life until sheer numbers overwhelmed his adversary. When everything was said and done, he remained, trying to find a purpose amongst the massive fields of his island. He went back to working the fields underneath an unassuming sky.

    Turns out, not leaving the island and waking up one day to find his communicator broken starts an unforeseen chain of consequences; no updates from the subworld to the parent server, and the whole island ends up noted as idle and gets put into the server's storage instead of being counted as a regular inhabited island. While Techno's still in it.

    This...causes massive problems.

    Summary

    “I’m not hungry anymore either,” Wei Wuxian continues. “I’ve decided that I don’t actually need to eat dinner. Who needs winter melon soup when bathroom tap water has such a deliciously sulfurous depth of flavor? Ugh—I can’t see anything, where are those damn towels—”

    A paper towel is shoved into Wei Wuxian’s hand.

    “Oh, thanks—”

    “I do not think drinking that water is advisable,” says a voice that is definitely not Jiang Cheng’s.

    Or, Wei Wuxian and Lan Wangji meet in a restaurant bathroom after they both go there to escape from their uncomfortable family dinner gatherings.

    Summary

    Tommy runs away from his parents - well, he was kicked out, but what's the difference, really?

    He heads to the one place that he thinks he can trust, Wilbur's house. He doesn't expect the ensuing protectiveness from Phil, Techno and Wilbur.

    Maybe the true family was the people that looked after him along the way.
