    Summary

    Jingyi makes a sympathetic sound. “I’ve got a buddy in one of the Hefei labs, and he says there’s some evidence to suggest that people stuck in limbo develop, like, whole new neural pathways. And you go in and out of it all the time, right, so who knows what your brain is up to.” His eyes light up. “Oh man, would you let me — ”

    “Obviously no,” Wei Ying says, voice flat. “But you’re close enough to right. I can keep you all safely in the level, but it’s tiring. I can’t be both dreamer and extractor.”

    “I’ll do it,” Lan Zhan cuts in, before Jingyi can protest or Wen Yuan can ask any further questions. “It’s not a problem.”

    “Are you sure?” Wen Yuan asks, brow furrowing. “If your sub-security picks up that Xian-gege doesn’t belong — ”

    “They won’t.”

    Wei Ying frowns. “Not for nothing, ge,” he says slowly, “but the last time we were in your dream together, I fell off a cliff.”

    Lan Zhan looks up and over at him. There is something in his eyes that Wei Ying can’t quite read: something fierce, and faraway. “I remember,” he says, voice quiet. “Do you?”

    -

    Wei Ying takes a dream heist job with an old friend.

    Summary

    “She is a doctor,” Jiang Yanli said, hands tightly fisted to keep from showing how badly they were trembling. “She can help us.”

    Summary

    He used to be so impatient when it came to meditating. He used to fidget; parts of his body that had never itched before would suddenly start screaming for attention; his mind wandering round and round and round, thoughts of the things he’d say tomorrow, the things he’d do, the places he’d go. Now he has nothing to say, nothing to do, nowhere to go. The stone lets him sink into it. It’s as though he’s spent so long without moving that his limbs have turned him into a carved thing, fused to the slab, his own mausoleum.

    Summary

    Enough of the staff was whispering about the Young Mistress's newfound curiosity about practical cultivation — hardly the sorts of things a proper future Jin-furen would need to know personally, and certainly nothing she'd shown a particular interest in before — that Yu Ziyuan decided it was time to investigate exactly what her daughter suddenly seemed to be preparing for.

    Summary

    Framed by the soft morning light, sleek hair swept back and pale blue robes not even slightly rumpled, he looks almost inhuman.

    He looks like the last person who should be knocking on Wei Wuxian’s door.

    In which Wei Wuxian is a curse worker secretly searching for a lost dragon, Lan Wangji is his new assistant, and the two things may not be entirely unrelated.
