  1. Summary

    Zuko knew shadowbenders were just a myth. Victims of a jealous spirit, cursed and driven to madness by the darkness they once controlled. Like the Kemurikage, they were just monsters in a story, mysterious figures only used to scare misbehaving children.

    As a shadow curls Kurami’s wrist like a particularly affectionate snake, he sees her smile softly and he wonders how those stories had ever begun.

    Canon!AU. A former assassin meets a banished prince, and they save each other’s lives.

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian is slow, these months, a pitiful grower. It is difficult to learn how to be soft; it feels too much like growing sharper. To not keep secrets is to narrate terrible stories that causes guilt and fear in those around him. To not grin and work his way through the aches by himself is to be unable to get out of bed and to snap because it fucking hurts when his husband asks him why. Is that who he is, when he doesn’t strive to be easy?

    He feels chilled by the realization, shoved face first into ice-melt water. As if the dirt-stained dagger sliding in beneath his ribs was the pulled thread, starting the rapid unraveling of the tapestry of his domestic dreams. The flash of cold, hard reality between yellow fields and fireplace-kisses.

    Summary

    “The Wens had been forced to cancel their own Lunar New Year trip after Wen-popo broke her hip amidst two days of ice storms. And if she knew that Wei Ying and Lan Zhan had rearranged their plans and inconvenienced both their families on her account, she’d kill them with her bare hands.”

    (Or: Wei Ying hosts a dinner, and returns a favor.)

    Summary

    Jin Zixuan uncorked the bottle, looked at it, and took a drink. A long one. Then he shoved it into Wei Ying’s hands, because Wei Ying was closest.

    “Jiejie’s going to kill us,” Jiang Cheng said, darkly.

    “I have a good hangover cure?” Wei Ying offered, and took a very long drink himself, swallowing three times around the bottle, and then wiping his mouth.
