    Summary

    “What are you doing?” he mouthed into Nicky’s thigh.

    “Watching you sleep.”

    “What else are you doing?”

    “Rewriting King Lear,” Nicky said. His voice was plagued with distraction. Joe pulled himself up enough to see the page; Act II ran red with slashed words. His lover’s eyes were the color of the sky just before a tornado touched down.

    Summary

    Over the past few years, he’s started sleeping as little as he possibly can without dying — his under-eyes are permanently bruised and he spends his daytimes hallucinating. It’s better than dwelling on what has come before: screams, limp bodies, spraying blood, blue eyes.

    Summary

    Joe drinks himself to death in Malta and then drinks himself to death in Athens and then sucks it up and gets on a plane to Vietnam. In the end, he’ll always love Nicky more than he’s afraid of anything.

    Summary

    If it were a regular day, Lan Zhan would have let him become that petulant and then kissed his pout off his lips until Wei Ying turned as red as the chilli oil which they stored just for him in the kitchens. Then, he would remind him, Wei Ying, you refused to come to bed until it was chou shi. If you do not sleep the required time, your health will suffer. If I wake you early, I will not be able to hold my husband for the prescribed hours, and then my own health will suffer, following which Wei Ying would splutter and blush brighter still. 

    Alternatively: a fortnight in the life of Yiling Laozu, Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation, Scourge of Jianghu, Corrupter of Children, Husband of Lan Wangji, as he lives out his roles as teacher, friend, brother, father, spouse.
