    Summary

    But it’s the look on Shinsou’s face that convinces Izuku. It’s the way he stands, bringing his arms in front of his face in a weak block, the curve of his back, feet wide. This is someone who has been beaten before, and knows he’s about to be beaten again. And he’s still standing there.

    Izuku turns to his teacher. “Yes,” he says, and nods firmly. “I’m sure.”

    Management student Izuku's new assignment tasks him with representing a hero student. He could have his pick from the classes 1-A or 1-B alike.

    But Izuku's not interested. He chooses Shinsou—a guarded, untrusting Gen Ed kid hoping to transfer—instead.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    {Quotes}

    “He doesn’t want to talk to you. He’s scared of you.”

    Wei Wuxian shrieks in mortification, but he doesn’t get to have an opinion. Jingyi’s seen the highlight scenes from the man’s life now, and half of his problems would never have happened if he’d told the truth about anything, ever, to anyone. So they’re doing this Jingyi’s way.
    ||
    Jingyi’s always been proud of being the worst child, actually. Not that it’s a particular challenge with the Gusu Lan. Only Sizhui is even close to his level, and he doesn’t count because he never, ever gets caught. Do you really deserve the title of bad child if all the adults still believe you’re an angel? Jingyi thinks not.
    ||
    Zewu-jun frowns, puzzled. “I would have thought this sort of cultivation was precisely his area of interest.”

    Wow, that was a surprisingly unsubtle burn from Zewu-jun. Jingyi rolls his eyes in exasperation, mentally agreeing with his brain guest’s indignant protests. “Look, he never got up to unwilling human sacrifice.” Though, okay, he may have looked into willing human sacrifice a little. Of course, ‘willing human sacrifice’ is just another way to describe Wei Wuxian’s entire life, so no one should be surprised. “He only tried demonic cultivation in the first place because there was a war on, he got dumped in the Burial Mounds by jerk-off Wens, and he didn’t have a golden core. It wasn’t because he loved evil.”

    You could hear a pin drop in the room.

    Wow, I hate you so much, says Wei Wuxian, almost wondering.

    “He what?” demands Zewu-jun, actually raising his actual voice. For once!

    “Which part?” Jingyi asks, baffled.

    “He didn’t have a golden core?!”
    ||
    Did you seriously not tell anybody you didn’t have a golden core? Jingyi demands. How was that a good idea? They must’ve thought you were being shady for fun! How can you be so much smarter than me and so much dumber than me at the same time?!
    ||
    It’s been six whole months, and they are still making no progress on Jingyi’s exorcism. Zewu-jun isn’t sleeping enough and Uncle is starting to pull out his own beard.

    Jingyi, meanwhile, feels bad about how little he cares about being exorcized. But…it’s just like having a roommate who never goes out? It’s not ideal, but it’s not awful. He and Senior Wei try to give each other as much space as they can, and they trade off the body every once in a while so Senior Wei can, like, stretch his legs. They’re used to it. They’re over it.

    Nobody else is, though. Well, nobody except Jingyi’s parents, who accepted Senior Wei into the family with alarming speed, and Sizhui, who seems pleased he’s gained two friends for the price of one. (Senior Wei and Sizhui get on like a house on fire, which kind of kills Jingyi.)
    ||
    “Then this body’s all mine, and I can do what I want with it,” Senior Wei explains, holding his arms out to the side and displaying his brand new body with a bemused smile. A smile like…he’s not totally sure he wants a body. Or to be alive at all.

    Well, that’s not allowed.

    “Great,” Jingyi says firmly. “So back to Hanguang-jun! Now you can tell him you’re in love with him. You’re alive, you have a golden core—your love story just went from hideously tragic to weird-but-cute. Congratulations. Go for it.”

    Senior Wei looks exasperated, like he isn’t the most exasperating person in the world. “Jingyi.”
    ||
    And then they just…they just stand there. Just staring at each other, unspeakably soft looks on their faces. They are literally standing in a moonlit courtyard gazing lovingly at each other right now, because that’s apparently a thing that happens in real life when Senior Wei is involved. Wow. This needs music, like a play.

    And here’s Sizhui, with an instrument.

    “Play them a dramatic love theme, Sizhui,” Jingyi demands.

    “Shut up, Jingyi,” Sizhui and Senior Wei say in perfect harmony, while Hanguang-jun frowns at him, looking weirdly offended.

    Jingyi beams. He loves happy endings.
