    Summary

    The cultivation world is rebuilding from the wreckage of the Sunshot Campaign, but Wangji and his shield brother Wei Wuxian are still completely attached at the hip. It is sad that Lan Xichen’s brother is stuck in the youthful pattern of - ah, no polite way to say it: exchanging handjobs with his shield brother - rather than moving on to more adult pursuits.

    On the other hand, now that the war is over, Wangji does seem so much more open and happy than he was as a boy. He smiles sometimes, mostly at Wei Wuxian. Once, he even took an afternoon off. So Lan Xichen can let Wangji’s closeness with his shield brother lie for a time, while he finishes maturing.

    Summary

    “Okay,” Jingyi says, as Sizhui puzzles this out aloud. “Okay! So the demon has been turning its victims into children.”

    “I think so,” Sizhui says.

    “To make them easier prey,” Jingyi says.

    “Yes,” Sizhui says.

    “So—” Jingyi’s voice cracks here, “this kid is Senior Wei.”

    Wei Wuxian, still tangled in his own massive robes, blinks politely at them.

    (Or: Wei Wuxian is cursed on a night-hunt, and the junior quartet rapidly finds themselves in over their heads.)

    Summary

    Hank closed his eyes. "I took the day off work next Friday. For Cole's birthday." When Maureen didn't respond, he forged ahead. "I wanted to ask if you want to come to the cemetery with me, or, you know. Meet me there. So we can talk for a bit."
    "Oh." It was very quiet, just an exhalation of surprise. "You want to talk. To me."

    Hank reaches out to his ex-wife for the first time in over a year.

    Summary

    While the world moves on, Cyberlife continues to try and reclaim Connor's program. Hank, torn between ensuring Connor's safety and respecting his desire to be left alone, isn't sure how to do right by his partner now. Meanwhile, Connor goes to the person who gave him the emergency exit to begin with. But Elijah Kamski always has a price, and sometimes it's more obscure than a loaded gun.

    Life can be as cold and brutal as the garden, and not all storms can be escaped. Only weathered.

    [Alternatively: Connor and Hank spend some time apart, spend some more time together, and slowly steal back their lives in the face of profound adversity.]
