    Summary

    The Yiling Patriarch hummed. "You would like some of my plants?" he asked. 

    A rhetorical question, of course. Lan Wangji gave him a small nod.

    "I would," he said.

    "I see!" The Patriarch's thumb brushed against the edge of Lan Wangji's jaw. His fingers curved around the back of Lan Wangji's neck. "But surely you are willing to pay for what you've stolen."

    Lan Wangji resisted the urge to moisten his lips, but he allowed himself to swallow. The Patriarch's eyes locked onto his throat.

    "What does the Patriarch ask as payment?"

    (In which Wei Ying is Tam Lin, Lan Zhan is Janet, and they must both fight their way to freedom.)

    Summary

    Zhou Zishu feels very mollified by the mundanity of it all. A dark rainy night, a secluded room, the weak light of a single lamp. The position they're in is nothing too adventurous; just the sort of thing people who are aware of their own routineness would think up, to make their lives marginally less so.

    Summary

    “Wei Wuxian,” the man grits out, and he pauses with one hand reaching for the door handle. The disciple who had come in to speak to Lan Qiren brushes past him and exits the pavilion without a backwards glance. Wei Wuxian turns back to Master Lan, one eyebrow tilting up in question. “An urgent matter has come up,” Lan Qiren says, every word sounding like it’s being forcibly dragged from him. “His Excellency requests my presence. Their current instructor is ill, I was meant to take over classes for today,” he continues, gesturing towards the tiny juniors. He swallows heavily, and the next sentence sounds bitter. Choked. “I cannot leave them unattended.”

    Wei Wuxian just blinks at him.

    Or

    Wei Wuxian is asked (under duress) to babysit a class of tiny Lan cultivators for just a few minutes. A few minutes turns into an hour, turns into two hours, turns into an impromptu literal field trip and now there's an entire class that is weeks ahead of their curriculum, their most junior disciples have apparently imprinted on Wei Wuxian like baby birds, and Lan Qiren has no one to blame but himself.

    Summary

    “We hear that His Excellency might be married by summer’s end,” the merchant’s wife says and Wei Wuxian freezes, his heart in his throat. “The Gusu Lan sect has been buying enough red silk and brocade that the merchants in Caiyi can’t satisfy the demand.”

    He feels himself grow brittle inside, like a flick of a finger to his temple might make him shatter. His ears are ringing.

    “Who’s the lucky bride?” he asks despite himself. His tongue sticks to the roof of his mouth.

    Or: The story of a marriage.
