    Summary

    "Xichen has loved his brother so much he thinks his heart might bear him ill will at this point. He will always ache when he is gone, like one of his arms is missing. He will try to soothe his brother’s troubled heart for a thousand years, if loving this boy is what will bring Wangji the most happiness, but it pricks at him like a doctor’s needles to see his brother’s open devotion treated like nothing by its very object."

    ----
    Lan Xichen and the brother he loved and nearly lost.

    Summary

    Wen Qing relaxes minutely, scrutinizing him. “Then,” she asks, “why are you here, Lan-er-gongzi?”

    He thinks of seven children, living here, surrounded by ghosts, fathered — fathered? — by the one who harnesses resentment to command the dead. Children he has named, inexplicably, Lan. Wen Qionglin is a fierce corpse, and yet he apparently talks and thinks and makes his own decisions. The children call him jiujiu. The children climb on his lap and ignore his instructions and say things like “he’s dead” with a careless lilt in their voices.

    Whatever the Yiling Patriarch is doing, whatever Wei Wuxian wants, Lan Wangji does not think it is an act of war.

    So he does not say, “I am here to neutralize the Yiling Patriarch.”

    He does not say, “Sentiment is gathering against you.”

    He does not say, “First liberate, second suppress, third eliminate.”

    Lying is forbidden, so Lan Wangji bows his head and says something true: “The Lan sect has very recently learned of seven disciples living in Yiling. I have come to attend their education.”

    Summary

    Along with his brother, Lan Wangji is one of the best young defensemen in the league. Wei Wuxian, meanwhile, is at best described as "a penalty waiting to happen" and "a ridiculous waste of so much potential".

    Or: it is a lovely day at Cloud Recesses hockey club, and you are a horrible player.

    Summary

    Fíli lived his life by an old dwarven proverb: when a fool drops a treasure, a wise man picks it up (it sounded better in the original khuzdul).

    Bella Baggins never quite fit in the Shire. Perhaps she was made for the mountains, instead.
