    Summary

    "Aw, Chenqing, did you find someone who could help us? What good thinking!" The man yanked the gastly over, smooshing his cheek against the solid portion of the gastly's body. "I'm so proud of you, thank you for not listening to me and staying put. But I would have thought of something!"
    Chenqing rolled its eyes and screeched, though Lan Wangji had no idea if it was in agreement or not.
    The man laughed. "Yeah, you're right." He let go of the gastly and stuck out a hand to Lan Wangji. "I'm Wei Wuxian! It's nice to meet you."

    --

    Lan Wangji, member of the inner Gusu League, encounters something he's never seen before; a human ghost tethered to life and unable to leave the Lavender Town graveyard. Getting to know this man reveals a plot deeper than he expected, and brings chaos into his life. Lan Wangji takes it upon himself to unravel this plot, save his new friend, and bring the culprits to justice. It's all in a day's work.

    Summary

    “Do not touch me,” A-Yin said, the smile ever-present on his face, though the softer affectations he had put on his voice before had fallen away leaving only the familiar cadence of Wei Ying. “If you have such nefarious intentions, gongzi, you would do well to discuss them with our Madam.”
    “Wei Ying,” Lan Wangji breathed out. His heart felt like it was unfolding in his chest. Warm, blossoming hope curling from within and filling the empty cavity that had been cold and gaping since Wei Ying had gone missing.

    ~
    Lan Wangji comes looking for Wei Ying in Yiling when he and Jiang Wanyin have no success in finding him after vanishing for three months. Lan Wangji was certainly not expecting to find him working as a courtesan.

    Summary

    The rumor says that the Yiling Laozu will accept any deal, for a price, and since there is always some place in the city that is broken, infected, crawling with malice, there are always those who are willing to pay, and the Yiling Laozu will then get the job done.

    He helps keep the balance, where the path of traditional cultivation fails.

    The city can use — sometimes the city requires — someone who is just like him.

    Summary

    The problem with CT Wei was, lamentably, not incompetence. Incompetence was a failing no one at the Gusu Bureau of Cultivation could forgive. Had he been incompetent, he would have already been dismissed from his position. No, the problem with CT Wei was far worse: he was friendly.

     

     

     

     

    There's a new forensic cultivator in the GBC.

    Lan Wangji is unimpressed.
