    Summary

    “You want me to call you good?” Wangji says. “To make you feel good?” Wei Ying makes a wretched, soft, surprised sound in the back of his throat. “Then will you be good?”

    “Uh,” Wei Ying says. His lashes flick down again, nervously. “Good how?”

    Wangji hasn’t quite thought that far ahead.

    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.

    Summary

    The Swiss Cheese model of accident causation likens human system defences to a series of slices of randomly-holed Swiss Cheese arranged vertically and parallel to each other with gaps in-between each slice. Defences against failure are modelled as a series of barriers, represented as slices of the cheese. The holes in the cheese slices represent individual weaknesses in individual parts of the system. The system as a whole produces failures when holes in all of the slices momentarily align, permitting "a trajectory of accident opportunity," so that a hazard passes through holes in all of the defences, leading to an accident.

    OR: Lan Wangji and Wei Wuxian go to the courthouse.

    OR: “Sweethearts,” the city clerk had said, very gently, “you’re already married.”

    Summary

    It's ridiculous that they had sex; how is this real? "Ah," Wei Wuxian says. Whatever words were going to follow are cut off by Lan Zhan stroking her face, thumb pausing warm and rough on her cheekbone. Her heart stops beating in her chest.

    "I love you so much," Lan Zhan says in her devastating early morning growl, and Wei Wuxian's brain whites out entirely. Lan Zhan is leaning in to kiss her and Wei Wuxian is somehow stuck here, living through it, because her body is refusing to evaporate into its component molecules.

    Summary

    Wei Ying just wants to graduate, figure out what he's doing with his life, and make sure there's a Starbucks within twenty feet of him at all times.

    It would be a lot easier to accomplish if he wasn't being stared at by worryingly familiar golden eyes every time he opened up his social media accounts.

    -

    In a world where immortals keep to themselves, one of them has decided to let himself be seen.
