    Summary

    Jiang Cheng is still staring at the place Lan Sizhui had stood. 

    The last living remnant of a persecuted clan, so much an amalgamation of his two fathers that it didn’t make sense that one of them had been dead for most of his young life—holding a grudge and bowing his head at the same time. Lan Wangji, in Jiang Cheng’s experience, has never once let something go that he could nurse icy resentment for instead. Wei Wuxian has always choked down hurt like it was second nature, no matter that it must feel like swallowing nails every time. 

    It was a normal conversation, but perhaps that’s exactly why Lan Sizhui couldn’t bear another second of it.

    “He died,” Lan Sizhui had said, as raw as a fresh wound, or one that kept getting torn open again before it could heal. “What more do you want?”

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian drops his hand, leans one shoulder into the stunted door frame. “Oh. Okay. So. Why are you here, exactly?”

    “The Institute sent me to assist you,” the ridiculously beautiful cardigan owner says, “as your familiar.”

    Wei Wuxian laughs as if it’s a joke, although the man’s stony expression makes it clear that any humor gleaned from him is likely unintentional.

    “Well, uh, I appreciate your,” Wei Wuxian says, “you know, time, but everything is under control here, actually.”

    With impeccable timing, a tea-kettle sound keens from the kitchen, followed by a contained bang.

    Or: Wei Wuxian is a witch, Lan Wangji is sent to be his familiar. They figure it out.

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian, having traveled six hundred years forward in time and corrected the historical records as much as he can without revealing that he was, in fact, the Yiling Laozu, realizes that there is one thing he can't do unless he goes public with his true identity: Clear the names of the Dafan Wen, making sure the world knows that they were never a sect of demonic cultivators but innocent people caught up in the war. It's the least he owes them. Lan Zhan worries what the world will do, knowing he's the Yiling Laozu, but he will be there for him no matter what.

    It's a whole process of course, but eventually there is only one step left. One certain way to prove his identity, and it's in a museum in Jinlintai.

    It's not the only thing they find there.

    Summary

    Exhausted from a busy cultivation conference, the last thing Lan Zhan needs is a man appearing out of thin air as he and his brother walk back to their hotel.

    Wei Wuxian isn't the first time traveler to appear in modern cultivation history, but that doesn't mean anyone knows how to send him back. As he helps them fill in gaps in the historical record - whether left by destruction or revisionism - Lan Zhan finds himself hoping that he'll stay. Even if there are things Wei Wuxian isn't telling him.

    Summary

    “You didn’t have to come,” Wei Wuxian says, sounding faintly embarrassed. “Whatever Jiang Cheng told you, it’s not true. It’s just a stab wound. Didn’t even puncture anything important. My doctor said I’d be right as rain in no time.”

    “You got stabbed?” Lan Wangji can’t quite hide the shock in his voice.

    Wei Wuxian ducks his head. “Just a little.”

    (Desperate to get away from his family, Lan Wangji has settled into a quiet life. Wei Wuxian seems to be intent on disturbing it. Lan Wangji seems intent on letting him.)
