    Summary

    What everyone knows but no one acknowledges about Gusu Lan’s famed intersect cultivation lectures is that its true purpose is to allow the next generation of cultivators to make advantageous matches.
    What Lan Wangji knows that he is expected to find and marry someone his sect will approve of before classes end - a partner whose animal instinct will align with the Lan dragons' notoriously monogamous traditions and who will provide the Lans with a politically useful alliance.
    What he cannot acknowledge is the truth - that foxes are known to be seasonal monogamists who take each mate for a single season only; that he has fallen in love with Wei Wuxian, against what should be possible given their incompatible natures; that Wei Wuxian might be courting him too, despite the odds; and that if he bows to their mutual attraction, marrying him can only lead them both to misery.

    By all rights, theirs should be a friendly rivalry. It is not. In fact, Miya Atsumu is probably the only person on campus Hinata actively dislikes.

    Summary

    Couples who’ve been together for half as long as they’ve agreed to disagree on the exact day and year they made it official probably don’t even plan on exchanging gifts, not anymore. Probably don’t even bother planning the dinner reservation for the exact date of the anniversary if it’s in the middle of the week, just wait to have their bottom-rack wine and medium-well steaks over candlelight until Friday night, only to spend the occasion monologuing about their work or their kids to half an audience of one. Dull. Lifeless. That was never going to be Tooru, never, but if Hajime kept this shit up, he just might end up in the ground instead, a bag of bones after years of harassment.

    “What do you want for your anniversary?” Tooru asks again.

    “You tell me,” Hajime replies, because he’s just the worst.

    Summary

    Within a forest marked by shadows and atop a mountain drenched in resentment lives a man feared by death itself. With corpses as his playmates and ghosts as his suitors, it’s said he wields more power than every Sect combined—which is why no one sect ever dares to face him head on.

    It’s well acknowledged that any man with such power is looking for someone to join him at his side, and when the Yiling Patriarch decides to find his own such partner, he offers up a game.

    in which Lan Wangji searches for a ghost, courts a crow, and finds his happy ever after.

    None of them had moved on. Not Jiang Wanyin—who still looks to his side for a brother long gone; who keeps a room prepared for a body never there; who still maintains a correspondence with Lan Wangji, finding ways to ask a question he never manages to find the words for. (Have you found him? Have you found him? Have you found him? ) Not Jiang Yanli, who still places an extra bowl of soup at an empty chair; who invites Lan Wangji for tea they never drink so she may have someone she can share her stories with who can nod and say, “I know.”

    Not Lan Wangji, still searching, never not searching, for nearly four years with nothing more than blind hope and a prayer hidden in his chest.
