    Summary

    Wei Wuxian’s hand jolts, spilling a drop of wine onto the tabletop. “Love?” he croaks, then clears his throat and tries again. “Lan Zh— uh, Hanguang-jun, in love?”

    “Have you not heard the story?” the other young woman asks, looking pitying. “You must, it is a truly heartrending tale of star-crossed romance and mutual pining — go to any storyhouse in town, everyone has been requesting a reading of this book.”

    “There’s a book?” Wei Wuxian says blankly.

    In which the junior disciples (namely, Lan Jingyi, Ouyang Zizhen, and a reluctant Lan Sizhui) turn to RPF in an attempt to rehabilitate Wei Wuxian's reputation so that he and Hanguang-jun can get together and get married and live happily ever after. It's... surprisingly effective.

    Summary

    There’s nothing for a moment, then what sounds like frustrated pacing. “Lan Zhan?”

    “Food.”

    Wei Wuxian’s laugh sounds strained. It sounds like he shouldn’t be laughing. Lan Wangji doesn’t like the sound.

    “I can’t eat, but thanks.”

    “Are you…?”

    “Still so horny that I want to die?” Wei Wuxian almost shouts. “Yes.”

    --

    Or, Wei Wuxian manages to get himself cursed and Lan Wangji just wants to be helpful.

    Wei Wuxian separates his life, without noticing, into three chapters. Some days, they’re hard to look at, hard to read, harder to know he wrote all of them himself. Some of the words are in blood.

    Summary

    or, one hundred and thirty-three principles of the Gusu Lan, pertaining to the state of marriage

    ***

    He bows to Wei Wuxian, sword in hand, sleeves falling properly. Wei Wuxian bows in return, and the sect leaders begin the opening courtesies, and for all of ten minutes Lan Wangji is under the impression that he is betrothed to a boy who is perfectly normal and acceptable apart from an unfortunate tendency to fidget with his clothes.

    That impression does not last.

    I have come to a city with tall gates painted red and a market larger than anything I have ever seen. I saw rabbits of all colours - if they were rabbits at all - and wondered how your warren was doing now it’s turning cold? Here, it is so cold. I don’t think they’d like it.

    Wei Ying writes as he travels. Lan Wangji reads and isn't there.

    Summary

    He swallows once. Reasonably, he knows that nothing will go wrong. Months of careful discussion and planning tell him so; Hua Cheng had assured him that if he so wished, it would end in an instant, and he would be safe. Xie Lian forces down the anxiety, redirects his focus to the silk of the thin robe that he wears over his bare skin. He thinks about how much he wants this.

    He wants it very, very much.

    Summary

    Hua Cheng has wanted Dianxia for so long he doesn’t know how to survive knowing that Dianxia is his at long last. Worse still, Dianxia doesn’t seem to have any interest in consummating their relationship, leaving Hua Cheng in the midst of his greatest trial yet: keeping his lust from consuming them whole.

    But a gem cannot be polished without friction, nor a man perfected without trials - and after everything, Hua Cheng will not let this trial be the one that defeats him.

    Summary

    Ghosts won't stop giving Xie Lian flowers, Hua Cheng won't stop teasing, and Xie Lian is out here doing his best, man.

    Xie Lian is momentarily frozen. Outside of heaven, no one calls him Highness except in jest, and there was a time people threw flowers at his feet as if to make a carpet for him to walk upon, but those years are long past. “Thank you. This is a—a princely gift.”

    The spirit’s black-pit eyes go wide and then he grins, revealing long, wicked teeth the color of tarnished silver. “Yes! Yes, I knew it was meant for his Highness.” The spirit nods to Hua Cheng, too, whose grin has widened to something almost obscene.

    “Truly,” Hua Cheng agrees.

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian chuckles and starts pushing Lan Wangji's outer robes off his shoulders. "Poor Lan Zhan, subject to such earthly miseries. You must be exhausted, come to bed, come to bed."

    "Mm," Lan Wangji says. He raises his arms so that Wei Wuxian can keep undressing him. His clothes will end up on the floor, but no matter. Wei Wuxian's deft hands at his belts are worth wrinkled robes.

    "... Goodness, Hanguang-Jun, you wear too many damned layers," Wei Wuxian tells him after a while. "Would it kill you to stop after a reasonable five?"

    --

    Wei Wuxian moves into the Jingshi. They sleep together.

    “You know, you’re the one to beat this year,” Jiang Cheng offers helpfully, having seen the glare from right next to him. “Hanguang-jun’s been through juniors with the rest of us, he knows all of our tics. You’re an unknown variable, since he’s never competed against you before.”

    “Thanks,” says Wei Wuxian drily. “That’s very comforting.”

    Or: five nighthunting competitions where Wei Wuxian and Lan Wangji were rivals, and one where they weren't.

    Summary

    It begins with a stray clementine, half-peeled and trailing rind, rounding the corner and rolling down the hallway. Lan Zhan has just stepped into the lobby of the apartment complex, grateful for the reprieve from the heat. He blinks, bemused, and watches as the clementine rolls to a stop just behind him.

    Lan Zhan and Wei Ying start off as neighbours but soon find themselves fitting into the spaces in each other's lives like they were meant to be there all along.

    “And you think the Chief Cultivator can help with this?” Lan Wangji said with a carefully neutral expression.

    Wei Wuxian met his eyes, and oh yes, there was definitely mischief there. “I was hoping he might...lend a hand?”

    Maybe it’s Wei Wuxian’s insistence on making more noise than might be deemed necessary after curfew that means Lan Wangji is pressed up against him right now, kissing the air from his lungs. It's the best way to be silenced. it’s glorious: a divine revelation.

    They are not rogue cultivators. Wei Wuxian is pretty clear about that. A few weeks after Lan Zhan joined him on the road, Wei Wuxian is still getting used to the new, unnamed normal when they get caught in a rainstorm and have to make an unplanned overnight stop.
