    Summary

    Suddenly, it snaps into place. The weary way Lan Zhan has been holding himself is suddenly cast in a new, much more distressing light. Somebody is responsible for it, a real live, horrible, blind, stupid person. The combination of guilt, sadness, and anger that sets in all at once is hard to contain. Lingering wisps of resentment that remain from the night-hunt flock to him, like calling to like.

    All four boys stare at him with wide eyes.

    “Wei-qianbei,” Sizhui says. “You look...um…”

    “Scary,” Zizhen breathes, beaming.

    “Who has rejected Lan Zhan?” Wei Wuxian asks.

     

    Or; during one of his visits to the Cloud Recesses, the juniors strike a blow to Wei Wuxian's certainty that his feelings for Lan Wangji are one-sided.

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian dies at twenty-two and doesn’t come back. Lan Wangji dies in an “unfortunate accident” in a temple in Yunping at thirty-seven. The world moves on.

    Thousands of years later, Wei Ying and Lan Zhan have a senior thesis in cultivation to co-write on the Yiling Patriarch. It doesn’t go exactly how they were expecting.
    -
    “I still do not understand why you were able to read the journal in the first place,” Lan Zhan says.

    Wei Ying grins. “You’ll laugh,” he says. He won’t, of course. Lan Zhan doesn’t laugh. But maybe he can swing a smile. “It’s because of the name thing. He wrote his name into the scrambling talisman. So it says that no one can undo the lock but Wei Ying.” He hooks a thumb at himself.

    Everyone’s always said his name is unlucky. This is the first time it’s worked out in his favor. It’s not a coincidence either; apparently his mother thought it would be funny. Mrs. Yu had told him that with a curl in her lip, as if it didn’t make him wish he knew his parents even more.

    Summary

    After his phone call with Xuan Lu, Xiao Zhan is feeling a little bit better about the whole thing. He’d done a little bit of research on the internet and found that it’s not really that uncommon to be in one of these ‘friends-with-benefits' situations. Xuan Lu was right, if it’s just fooling around, what’s the harm? Yibo is hot, and single, and (most importantly) not a shitty guy, so Xiao Zhan has no qualms about hooking up with him, and if either of them wants to date someone else then they just put an end to it. Easy.

    (It's not that easy)
