    Summary

    Xie Lian’s string was red. It was supposed to indicate that his person was all of it wrapped up in one—that there was one person in the world who would be his friend, his family, all of it. However, the older Xie Lian got, the more he began to think that maybe red just meant he had nobody at all.

    _____

    In a world where platonic, familial, and romantic soulmates are indicated by yellow, blue, and white strings, Xie Lian's is red.

    Summary

    Mu Qing’s name stares at him from the bright screen. Below lies a short profile with the bare necessity of information — age, location, a single sentence about what he’s looking for (not just a fuck). In a normal dating app, this would be enough to prowl the depths of desperate souls within the phone.

    And yet, one more box lies empty. What do you hate?

    A lot, says one part of Mu Qing’s mind while the other echoes, nothing important.

    ---

    Xie Lian insists Mu Qing try online dating with an app geared towards meeting people who hate similar things. Mu Qing hates Feng Xin. But he doesn't have the app, so it's not like he'll find out.

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian barely makes a sound when Jin Zixun’s sword goes through his chest. A tiny noise is punched out of him — half gasp, half sigh. Jin Zixun, wearing that smirk that Lan Wangji has always hated, moves to pull the sword out.

    This won’t do; Lan Wangji knows enough about battlefield medicine to understand the principle of keeping the weapon in the wound until a medic arrives. So he does the only thing that occurs to him in the moment, letting the momentum of flight be the force behind the swing; he cuts off Jin Zixun’s hand.

    -

    Lan Wangji goes with Wei Wuxian to his nephew's one-month celebration instead of Wen Ning. They still don't make it to the party.
