    Summary

    The first time Lan Wangji sees Wei Wuxian, it’s the evening before their first day of classes, and Wei Wuxian is sneaking into one of the academy’s shuttles.

    The boy turns a wide-eyed gaze onto Lan Wangji. “Could you—do you mind letting go of my wrist?” His wrist flexes in Lan Wangji’s tight grasp. “I bruise like a peach, it’s really embarrassing."

    Lan Wangji releases the other boy’s wrist like he’s been burned.

    That’s the first mistake he makes.

    ---

    The first time Lan Wangji meets Wei Wuxian, they're 14, and Wei Wuxian is in the midst of stealing a Cloud Recesses shuttle. Years later, Wei Wuxian disappears in the middle of the Sunguard Campaign, taking the Wen refugees with him.

    Lan Wangji, seeking answers, follows Wei Wuxian's trail of one-way transmissions across the Middle Kingdom System, and finds both the answers he seeks, and answers to questions he'd never thought to ask before.

    Summary

    Jiang Yanli lifted her eyes up to Madam Jin and said, calmly, as if from a hundred miles away, “I am a daughter of the Yu sect. Did he think my mother only taught me how to pour tea?”

    Or: the AU in which Jin Guangshan targets Jiang Yanli and she kills him before he can ruin everything.

    Summary

    Lan Xichen squeezes his arm once and lets go. Lan Wangji tries not to miss the warmth as the man continues, “Do not worry, Wangji. We have invited Young Master Wei and I am sure that he can help us break the curse. If there is anyone in the world whom I trust to do it, it is him.”

    All of a sudden, recognition sparks at the surname. It catches him off guard, after everything that happened in the short span of time, the familiarity in the name grips him with hope. Lan Xichen stood and Lan Wangji raises his head and speaks, almost without thinking, “Wait.”

    The smile on Lan Xichen’s face falters. “What is the matter?”

    “Young Master Wei,” Lan Wangji repeats even though the words do not fit his mouth right. It feels wrong even though he does not know why. He needs to know why. “What is his name?”

    A night hunt leads to Lan Wangji forgetting everything except for his cultivation and his inexplicable connection to a person he cannot even remember - Wei Ying.

    Summary

    The thing with musical prodigies is that they're soloists, and soloists play alone. He doesn't want to play alone anymore.

    -

    "A summer guest lecture series? Oh, very nice. I wish I could sit in on that."

    "Do you also play the piano?"

    "Not even a little bit," says Wei Ying cheerfully. "But I'm sure you'd have a lot of thoughts on musicality that would be relevant regardless."

    "Oh," says Lan Zhan. He seems to be searching for something else to say. "I believe it is oversubscribed," he says finally.

    "As it should be," says Wei Ying, and does not tell him that he has all of Lan Zhan's albums downloaded onto his phone, listened to over and over when he's on a train, a plane, waiting for a taxi, has followed his career since he overheard half a Mendelssohn when they were fifteen.
