    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 ocean was enormous. It felt bigger than anything Wei Wuxian had encountered before. Their first day in the tiny fishing village Lan Wangji wanted to revisit, Wei Wuxian walked right up to where the waves lapped against the rocky beach and stood as the spray splashed the front of his robes.

    One particularly large wave broke against a nearby rock and splattered his face. He licked the salt off his lips, laughing, and turned to Lan Wangji.

    Lan Wangji stood a safe distance from the surf. He had one hand clutched tight around Bichen and the other resting on his hip. From this distance, he looked impassive, but Wei Wuxian knew that Lan Wangji's eyes would be soft, watching him delight in this new experience.

    In his first life, Wei Wuxian had been the second-strongest swimmer in Yunmeng Jiang; he took to water as easily as he took to cultivating the sword. Now, in Mo Xuanyu's body, he struggled with both.

    He was determined to re-master his old skills. And what better time to do it than on his extended honeymoon with Lan Wangji?

    Summary

    Lan Wangji looks down at his own hands, steadying himself. It is easier to think clearly when he is not looking into Wei Wuxian’s eyes. He takes the scroll from his pouch.

    “Research has uncovered a method,” he says. He does not mention the forbidden nature of said research, nor does he elaborate on the method itself. He will not venture to speak it aloud. He hands the scroll over.

    Wei Wuxian looks at him for a long moment as he takes it, and Lan Wangji holds his breath, waiting for him to decide. Waiting to see if he is at least interested enough in the possibility of a new core to read it.

    He is. He does. Lan Wangji might be relieved, if not for what comes next.

     

    Lan Wangji offers to help Wei Wuxian develop a new golden core via dual cultivation. He struggles to keep his feelings in check.
