    Summary

    Even the devil can have regrets, and Nie Huaisang has reason to have many.

    With the end of his quest for vengeance for those wronged by his greatest enemy, Huaisang had thought he'd get peace. That perhaps, the fight was over and he could release things he'd held close for so long.

    But tragedy was ever-present in the cultivation world, and there were some things he could no longer hide behind his fans, no matter how prettily painted. The people he'd tried so hard to show the truth to, to give them a little bit more brightness in their tragic lives... it was cruel.

    He might have been practical, and cunning, but he'd never wanted cruelty, not for the people he cared about.

    Working in the shadows hadn't been enough, and so he'd try again, but better, this time.

    Summary

    “Your people—they are trustworthy, right? If you tell them to keep a secret as well, they would?”

    “My disciples would, yes,” Jiang Cheng gives back, no doubt in his mind that his people are loyal to him and would keep whatever secret he asks them to.

    “Promise. Promise on your life,” Nie Huaisang repeats, stepping forward to grab Jiang Cheng’s arm and he’s surprised how much Nie Huaisang shakes.

    “I promise on my life, the life of my disciples and the memory of my family,” Jiang Cheng solemnly says and Nie Huaisang slumps in relief.

    “Someone tried to kill da-ge,” Nie Huaisang tells him. “I need you to hide him while he recuperates.”

    Summary

    The last thing Nie Huaisang recalled before waking up here was Wei Wuxian reassuring him that everything about his latest experiment was going Fine, no really, that’s supposed to be on fire—, and Nie Huaisang stared up at the tent above him and contemplated going and finding Wei Wuxian and strangling him. It wouldn’t fix anything, he suspected, but it would make him feel better.

    Summary

    Nie Huaisang’s rooms in the Unclean Realm had a little side door that no one but him ever used.

    Years after he’d put it out of his mind entirely, there came a terrible banging noise at that little side door, like someone was kicking at it furiously from the outside.

    Lan Wangji, white robes stained with blood and cheeks bright with fever, shoved something into his arms. “You have a child now,” he said through bitten lips. “Congratulations. He is called A-Yuan. I entrust you with his care, for my sect cannot be trusted with it.”

    Summary

    "You weren't at Nightless City." it's not an insult, or an accusation. Just observation. 

    "Da-ge said it would be too dangerous. I couldn't sleep all night that day. And then I got the news about Wei-xiong." 

    "It's good you weren't there," Lan Wangji suddenly decides. "Your last memory of Wei Ying shouldn't be…" he trails off. Shouldn't be someone completely different from who he really was.
    -
    During a travel in Qinghe, he takes the opportunity to greet Nie Huaisang as the new Nie sect leader.
