    Summary

    He doesn’t remember his first life; he only has the scraps of stories which Wen-shushu has been telling him. He doesn’t know what he will need in order to come home but he knows he needs to go on this journey if he wants to find it.

     

    Post-canon, Lan Sizhui travels with Wen Ning as he tries to reconcile his identity and family, and find out what home looks like for him.

    Summary

    He stitches a tiny row of suns along the left cuff of his inner robe—not flames, never flames, not after Lotus Pier burned, not after Wen Qing burned—suns, life-giving and scorching, for the last, best doctor of Qishan Wen. She would probably laugh at his badly sewn suns and his sentimentality, but her eyes would be soft. Some days, he misses her so much he thinks it might swallow him whole.

    Summary

    “Which reminds me,” Wei Wuxian continued, “Of course you never read novels, but really, Lan Zhan, the one I am reading now is so very good, I think even you would find it worth your time. It’s not only thrilling, although it is that, to be sure. There’s real insight in it, and it touches on matters of justice and devotion which, you can guess, are of particular interest to me.” He laughed a little, as if dismissing his own preference in this.

    Summary

    Breakdowns of what everyone’s wearing, from Tang Fan’s formal robes and Sui Zhou’s uniforms to Ming dynasty underwear and, yes, the “Mama Cui” outfit. Includes Dong’er, Wang Zhi and Ding Rong, Dr. Pei, Tang Yu, the Emperor, the Noble Consort, and many, many hats. This is by no means definitive or exhaustive, but it’ll give you something to describe in your fic beyond “a buncha robes.”*

    *Which I have done. Sorry, Lan Zhan.
