    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.

    Summary

    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.
