    Summary

    When the doorbell rings, Wei Ying lunges for it and triumphantly throws open the front door. He looks down, expecting to see a package. But there's no package on the front stoop. Instead, there's a baby.

    A real actual live baby, nestled within a car seat. It blinks at Wei Ying, and he blinks back.

    Then he opens his mouth and screams.

    (In which A-Yuan is dumped off on Wei Ying's doorstep. He and Lan Zhan raise the baby while falling in love.

    ...Yeah, it's one of THOSE stories.)

    Summary

    “And,” said one of the pompous ministers, “there’s the matter of a marriage to consider as well!” 

    Jin Ling, who at the beginning of that sentence had expected to slam into the very last wall of his patience and lose his temper entirely, paused. “A what?”

    Thing was… it wasn’t such a bad idea.

    Summary

    Thirteen years ago, Wei Wuxian brought scandal and shame down upon his head and was thrown out of the competitive ballroom dance circuit. He vanished, never to be heard from again.

    Lan Wangji aches when he remembers the way Wei Ying danced--like a laugh given movement and form. He has never stopped searching for him.

    Summary

    It’s a really unfortunate thing, developing a crush on your husband. Wei Ying had assumed this would be easy. Lan Zhan had been so icy and unpleasant to him, it had never occurred to him that he might end up spending the next however many years with this dumb, burning feeling in his chest whenever he looks at him.

    “Okay,” says Wei Ying. “But tell me if I…if the pretending gets to be too hard, okay?”

    “It will not,” says Lan Zhan, quietly certain.
