    Summary

    The Sunshot Campaign was losing. It was only a matter of time before Wen Ruohan beat them into submission. There were rumours surrounding a force in Yiling that could potentially turn the tide. The place was taken from the Wen early in the war but no one knows by whom, known only as the 'Yiling Patriarch'. All forces that the Wen have sent to try and retake Yiling have been destroyed entirely. If he allied with the campaign then it could potentially turn the tide of the war. A messenger was sent to him asking what he wants in exchange for an alliance.

    The response came back: the heir of one of the Great Sects in marriage. For the war to be won, someone must be sacrificed.

    ---

    Taking a deep breath he straightened his shoulders and tilted his chin up slightly in determination, “I will do it.”

    The arguing continued and Lan Wangji frowned as it seemed that no one had heard him, until his eyes met his brother’s and saw that his face had gone white with shock.

    Nie Mingjue looked between them, “What was that, Wangji?”

    “I said, I will do it.” Lan Wangji repeated, gripping so tightly onto Bichen that his knuckles went white.

    Summary

    “Nice,” Drunk Man says, into the crook of his neck, and does nothing else. Wei Ying slowly relaxes, allows himself to pat Drunk Man between the shoulder blades, and sighs.

    “Okay,” he says. “Glad you think so.”

    Drunk Man does not respond. Wei Ying wonders if he went back to sleep, and then takes a further moment to wonder why this always happens to him, why he’s always the one helping a heartbroken twink sober up after a terrible night out or sitting on the curb with a sobbing teenager with a fake ID while they wait for her parents to come pick her up. If only he was as shitty a person as White Mike, he could be home asleep right now and this beautiful man would be passed out in a gutter and probably mugged. Wei Ying looks down at the drunk man on his shoulder, thinks about leaving him to fend for himself, and sighs. Nope. Not on his watch.

    Or: A meet-cute at two in the morning.

    Summary

    So there was this jar, and it had so much peanut butter still in it, and when his fox nose scented it and didn’t catch any poison or spoilage, what was he supposed to do? Not avail himself of this gift? No. He shoved his delicate little snout right in there and got to licking, but, you know… Elegantly. Definitely not snarfing and making horrible little fox sounds and rolling around on the ground while he went ham on the jar. Sure, he had to work a little bit to get at the last of it, but anything good is worth working for, right? So finally, triumphant, no longer starving, and maybe a little thirsty now from eating half a cup of peanut butter in about two minutes, he’d tried to remove his head from the jar.

    Operative word tried.

    Or: Wei Ying gets stuck. Lan Zhan helps.

    Summary

    Making a will at eighteen seems incredibly morbid. The lawyer stares at him long and hard the entire time. She acts like he's contagious, like she might catch her death from him or maybe he'll ruin her rug by dropping dead in her office. Steve figures she has nothing to worry about. If anything's going to kill him, it's probably going to be a monster from the Upside Down.

    -

    In which Steve hunts monsters, becomes a deputy, makes a will, and finds a family. Among other things.

    Summary

    "Has the child eaten?"

    The Mandalorian and Karga looked up, both a picture of confusion. "Has he?" Karga asked the Mandalorian. The man only grunted.

    "If my nursing protocol did not forbid it, you both would be out that window," IG-11 deadpanned.
