    "Okay, okay, all right, look. I don't know how to use this thing, but it's—this is your whole schtick, right? Ancient magic stuff?"

    (Or: Diana and Harley win a fight and also accidentally form a semi-telepathic link, Harley kind of makes friends with the Justice League, and also there are a lot of feelings.)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    "It is," Diana said. "You've done terrible things. I cannot forgive you for them. But they are not the sum of you. They are not all you are, Harley Quinn."

    Summary

    Over a long and storied career, a master of Restoration will meet many myths, misconceptions, and outright lies about health, illness, and the nature of one’s body. The less we say about counterfeit contraceptives and venereal curatives, the better. Yet I take particular umbrage with the persistent misunderstanding of race— specifically, racial phylogeny.

    The Imperial University’s "Notes on Racial Phylogeny" is now in its seventh edition, and has enormous circulation among academics and laypeople. There may be no more widely read and widely misunderstood book in the medical tradition.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    "They are lucky to have such a king: a king who strives to be a better man, to help the drowning because he can and because he knows it to be right, not because they have earned it. They would have killed your mother, they would have thrown you away; they do not deserve you. But—" She stopped, and smiled just a little, though he couldn't see it. "But it isn't about what they deserve. It is about what you believe, what you will choose to do. What you love, and what you value, and who you wish to be."

    Summary

    “If you’re going to get married,” Jiang Cheng ground out, “then you’re going to damn well get married at Lotus Pier.”

    Wei Wuxian blinked once. Again. Then: “what?”

    Or: the one with sibling reconciliation, brother-in-laws from hell, and Jiang Cheng trying to sort through his feelings while acknowledging them as little as possible.
