    Summary

    Wei Wuxian doesn’t hear his brother kick open the door through the ringing in his ears. It isn’t until he raises his hanging head, squinting through his swollen eye, that he sees Jiang Cheng framed in the doorway with Zidian crackling on his finger. Zidian shifts the atmosphere of the entire restaurant, and the sharp smell of ozone makes Wei Wuxian flinch involuntarily -- the last time he smelled it, his entire back was numb, so useless he could barely walk, and Jiang Cheng hasn’t been able to use it until now. Relief and fear shoot through him in equal measure; this means the surgery took. It also means Jiang Cheng did not take his advice about being careful next time.
    .
    Fortunately, Jiang Cheng rescues Wei Wuxian before he can be thrown into the Burial Mounds. Unfortunately, that means no Yiling Patriarch. Everything changes.

    Summary

    Murder gets treated relatively lightly in Volyne, but that's only to be expected given that it shares it's borders with Mirror City - which is just as often called Murder City, home of the country's finest assassins, where each and every mirror can be used to scry into someone's life in order to figure out how best to kill them.

    But when a woman's dead body is found in just the right place to cause a riot that will draw in his friends, Jan Tarlo - who swore years ago to stop making bad decisions, or indeed any decisions whatsoever - gets drawn into a web of political intrigue that forces him further and further back into his past.

    Back to Mirror City.

    Summary

    When the world was still new and the legends of today were not yet legends, Lan An became cursed.

    Yet, it is not Lan An, but Lan Wangji who bears the price of these mistakes. Lan Wangji and Jiang Cheng. Jiang Cheng and Lan Wangji.

    Summary

    “Wei Wuxian, don’t you dare! Your husband will be arriving any second, and we don’t—”

    “We don’t what.” Wei Wuxian gives him an irritated look right back, no doubt just returning Jiang Cheng’s own exasperation which he has never been good at hiding, but honestly: he wants to cause a ruckus now?

     On their wedding day?!

    Summary

    For as long as he can remember, Kyoutani Kentarou has always been too much. Whether it's at home, in school, or playing volleyball, he causes problems wherever he goes just by his state of being, and he knows everyone prefers it when he's not around. He doesn't have a choice, though, to be anything else but simply him.

    A story about learning to be comfortable in your own skin.

    Summary

    Midoriya Izuku doesn't particularly want to become a hero, but going through the motions and getting his license is the best - read: least boring - way he can think of to prove himself to his father and get a few more allowances at home.

    Surprisingly, his father agrees.

    As for applying to Yuuei in particular? Well. That's part of a different game.

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian gets caught sneaking into Cloud Recesses.

    But since he can't tell the truth - that he's just here to deliver his teacher's most recent love letter to her soulmate who's stuck in a cave - he tells a lie instead. He says that he's a Jiang disciple that had arrived late and so had snuck in through the gates. He hadn't expected the lie to work, sure that it would unravel as soon as they found a Jiang to verify it, but instead Jiang Yanli backs up his story, and even adds to it.

    Which is how he ends up masquerading as the first disciple of Lotus Pier while trying to figure out how to get out of Cloud Recesses without anyone discovering that he's the disciple of Baoshan Sanren.

    Summary

    “Nice,” Drunk Man says, into the crook of his neck, and does nothing else. Wei Ying slowly relaxes, allows himself to pat Drunk Man between the shoulder blades, and sighs.

    “Okay,” he says. “Glad you think so.”

    Drunk Man does not respond. Wei Ying wonders if he went back to sleep, and then takes a further moment to wonder why this always happens to him, why he’s always the one helping a heartbroken twink sober up after a terrible night out or sitting on the curb with a sobbing teenager with a fake ID while they wait for her parents to come pick her up. If only he was as shitty a person as White Mike, he could be home asleep right now and this beautiful man would be passed out in a gutter and probably mugged. Wei Ying looks down at the drunk man on his shoulder, thinks about leaving him to fend for himself, and sighs. Nope. Not on his watch.

    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

    "The doctor said you don't appear to be possessed," said Lan Wangji, just behind Jiang Cheng's ear. He sounded nothing more than bemused, as if Jiang Cheng were a puzzle someone had presented him.

    Jiang Cheng's shoulders shook in silent hysterical laughter. Yes, possession would be the obvious theory, wouldn't it? If he'd come across some sect leader slitting his wrists in the back of a cave, it would've been his first thought, too.

    Summary

    Meng Yao's sister-in-law is following the Jiang tradition of being evil. Why else would she try to set him up with a married man?

    “I’m pretty sure my sister-in-law is trying to ruin my life.” 

    Lan Huan’s tone is one of genuine curiosity when he asks, “Why would she do that?” 

    “I don’t know yet,” Meng Yao untangles himself from the barre and crosses his arms across his chest, looking up (and up, and up, curse Jiang Yanli for her knowledge of his tastes) at Lan Huan’s very handsome jawline. “But I need you to make less vigorous eye-contact until you bring me a notarized waiver saying your spouse doesn’t care about you hitting on me.”

    Summary

    Lan Qiren was running to catch up, because he was always running to catch up.

    He was determined not to fall behind, but he was slow, as always, and tired more easily than the others, and then he got distracted and realized a considerable distance had opened up between him and the rest of the group. He ran to catch up –

    He tripped.

    He was going to fall flat on his face, he realized as he pitched forward, throwing his hands up in front of his face to try to blunt the pain since humiliation was already a given. He probably wasn’t far enough behind for them not to see this, and then his brother would turn his face away and sigh, aggravated, his shoulders slumping in disappointment at how Lan Qiren had lost him and their sect face all over again.

    Lan Qiren was so bound up in his gloomy thoughts that it took him a moment to realize that he had not, in fact, hit the ground. Someone had caught him.

    Lan Qiren straightened himself up immediately and dropped into a deep salute. “Thank you for your help –”

    He looked up.

    “…Sect Leader Wen,” he finished weakly.
