    Summary

    Wei Ying hiccupped a bubble of blood out of his mouth, and he shifted on the sword, sending a swift terror through Lan Wangji. He pinned Wei Ying mercilessly close, tightly enough he could support Wei Ying’s entire weight even if his feet left the steel.

    Wei Ying had closed his eyes on the cliff at Nightless City and let himself fall back. Lan Wangji’s heart had leapt out through the wall of his chest. Lan Wangji had stopped him, pulled him forward and thrown down a teleportation talisman and swept him away. He would not, could not let him slip through his hands now.

    Summary

    “What prize do you desire?” the croupier asks, bone dice clacking in their black cup.

    “The body and soul of Wei Wuxian.”

    In the gambling house of the ghost king Crimson Rain Sought Flower, you can win any treasure--if you’re desperate enough, if you’re willing to risk enough, if you’re lucky enough. After six years of searching for any trace of Wei Wuxian, Lan Wangji is desperate enough to come to Hua Cheng’s gambling table, and he’s ready to pay any price. Luck has rarely been on his side, but he’ll need it tonight.

    You don’t need to know TGCF to read this, and this fic does not spoil any TGCF plot points (just a bit of worldbuilding).

    Summary

    He can’t get Jin Guangyao’s words out of his head.

    If he’d only believed in Wei Wuxian, if he’d only been willing to stand up for him, could it all have been avoided?

    Summary

    Wei Ying lets the oars rest and leans back, tilting his head to look at Lan Wangji. “Did you find what you’re looking for? On the docks today?”

    Lan Wangji wants to turn away from his gaze. He isn’t used to being seen. “No,” he says, because he doesn’t know how to explain what he’s looking for in the first place.

    Wei Ying props his chin on his fist. “Can I guess?” Without waiting for an answer, he continues, “You’ve fallen in love with a pirate girl, and you’re waiting for her to steal you away to be the glittering jewel of her collection, so you can live on the open ocean together.” Lan Wangji narrows his eyes at him and Wei Ying bursts into laughter. "Ah well," he says. "I'll get it right next time."

    Summary

    Turns out the HR department may have had a point when they said don't bring your work home with you, and not just in the metaphorical sense. In his defense, it's not like he was trying to get anyone cursed.
