Mulberries do not bud until all danger of frost is past, and so they symbolize calculated patience. When they do produce buds, it happens so quickly that it seems to occur overnight, displaying and thus symbolizing expediency and wisdom.
Nie Huaisang had thirteen years of practice with patience, he could wait a year longer.

In one world, the start of Sunshot Campaign is the reason why Qinghe Nie Sect and its leader, Nie Mingjue, became war heroes in the eyes of the cultivation world.
But in another one, it marks the day they lose their young master to the Wen Sect not with a violent death, but with treachery.
Nie Huaisang abandons his beliefs, betrays his family, aids the enemy, and kneels in front of Wen Ruohan.
This changes things- but surprisingly, not in the way one would expect.
Nie Mingjue took a deep breath, held it for a few heartbeats, and then exhaled. Then he summoned his war council and told them that Wen Ruohan was starting a war.
“He’s not ready yet,” one of his sect elders objected. “It may just be a ruse to get our guard up –”
“It is not,” Nie Mingjue said firmly. "It is happening."
They all looked at the piece of paper laying innocently on his desk.
The list of names.

with a smile sickly and sly, the stone whispered to the mulberry sapling.
"sing." hissed the stone to the mulberry leaves.
"sing, and sing out until you turn to ash and dust.”
It is a known fact that the Songs of Turmoil poison both the player and the listeners. And Nie Huaisang had been playing the tainted Song of Cleansing for months, practicing all alone at the behest of his San-ge, Jin Guangyao. Now the adverse effects are beginning to reveal themselves bit by bit.
Nie Mingjue knows that there is something very wrong with his Didi, and he'll be damned if he can't figure out what it is- regardless of his own waning stability and his growing unrest. His little brother, as always, comes first- the rest of the world can burn as far as he's concerned.
A What If-, in which the effects of playing Guangyao's tainted song bring more turmoil, pain, and heartbreak upon the Nie Sect- and the dear brothers who rule it- than anyone could have expected.
[This is my first MDZS fic, and my first fanfic- please be gentle with me!]
