    Summary

    “How long have you lived on the streets?” Wangji asks.

    Xue Yang shrugs. “All my life, I think. I don’t remember anything else.”

    Wangji tosses him the next meat bun. Xue Yang catches it easily – and he grins at Lan Wangji, wide and cheeky. Then, unexpectedly, “Why’re you talking to me?” he asks.

    Lan Wangji blinks. “Why should I not?”

    Xue Yang rolls his eyes, as if the answer is obvious. “No one else does. I’m a street rat. They’d rather I be dead.”

    There's more truth to Hanguang-jun's reputation for picking up strays than one would first believe - aka Lan Wangji takes Xue Yang in before Jin Guangyao can.

    Summary

    His kick has dislodged some stray fragments of Guanyin Temple's destroyed ceiling beams. Jingyi stares at them as he kneads his toes through his boot. They’re as red as the blood that stains the floor beneath him, sharp and splintering. Wind whistles through the wood and stone, though there’s a flickering too - the sound of paper fluttering in the breeze.

    A talisman written in blood.

    ---

    Lan Jingyi finds a way home.

    Summary

    “Oh, and that time I ran away? From the family that had me before the Jiangs took me in? I got hypothermia.” Wei Ying says all of this with the same easy demeanor that he uses when he tells playground stories about Jiang Cheng and Jiang Yanli, like he’s not discussing trauma. “When you get hypothermia once you’re more susceptible to it in the future, which is a fun side effect.” He shrugs and kisses Lan Zhan’s neck with lips that are still cold but not horribly so. “I just get cold easy now. I’m used to it.”

    “Mn,” Lan Zhan says, and means, “We’ll fucking see about that.”

    Or: Wei Ying is not allowed to be cold, therefore Lan Zhan must learn to knit.

    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

    Maybe, just maybe, if Wei Ying pretends he has his shit together, he can find a roommate who actually does. Someone who will pay the rent on time, someone who will put up with Mo Xuanyu’s eerie wailing on moonless nights. And then, after he wows them with his winning personality, maybe they’ll put up with him, too. Maybe they’ll like him too much to dip the second he blows up another dead rat—ethically sourced, he would like to add, from the independent pet store around the corner—in another experiment gone wrong and gets rodent viscera all over the kitchen table.

    Look, necromancy isn’t as easy as they make it look on TV.

    Or: Wei Ying needs a new roommate. Lan Zhan has a lot to learn about ethical necromancy.
