    Summary

    As blood starts to coat the strings, Cloud Recesses lies dreaming all around him, with only the soft clatter of the spinning wheel and the hum of the spirit bridge to break the silence. In front of him, the invisible gate between the worlds stands ajar, and an otherworldly breeze shifts the ends of his forehead ribbon.

    He breathes in.

    He breathes out.

    His bloody fingers unerringly pluck out the opening notes of the piece he knows by heart and down to the marrow of his bones, his spirit slowly rising out of his flesh as it settles in to wait. He steps up onto the table, light as a feather, takes one final look around the jingshi, which is as neat and empty as the life that he is leaving behind.

     

    Wait for me, Wei Ying. I’m coming.

     

    He turns his back to the world he knows and takes the first step.

    Lan Wangji walks into the underworld to get Wei Wuxian. It takes him 13 years to prepare, and then he has 3 days to make it there and back. Although he doesn’t ask for help, help comes to him from unexpected quarters.

    Summary

    Lan Jingyi had not anticipated quite so much kissing when he’d joined the premier cultivation agency in Gusu. As he understood it, he had joined a team responsible for suppressing and eliminating restless spirits and cursed items under the noses of the unsuspecting public. The job description hadn’t mentioned kissing at all, and it certainly hadn’t been covered in training. 

    And yet, it keeps happening. It just keeps happening.

    Summary

    No matter how she tries to word it, the question is going to sound terribly awkward. Even if San Niang is the most trustworthy person Xie Lian knows, she might decide to simply hang up and go back to sleep.

    “I wondered… I mean, since then I have been wondering if maybe what Shi Qingxuan was suggesting might not be entirely out of the realm of possibility,” she rushes through this as quickly as possible, squeezing her eyes closed as she speaks. “I don’t really know how to judge what I’m, um, supposed to feel.”

    “About… women?” San Niang says, posing the question tentatively.

    “Yes,” Xie Lian says, breathing it out.

    “Oh,” San Niang says, just as softly. “Okay. Um.”

    Summary

    Suddenly, it snaps into place. The weary way Lan Zhan has been holding himself is suddenly cast in a new, much more distressing light. Somebody is responsible for it, a real live, horrible, blind, stupid person. The combination of guilt, sadness, and anger that sets in all at once is hard to contain. Lingering wisps of resentment that remain from the night-hunt flock to him, like calling to like.

    All four boys stare at him with wide eyes.

    “Wei-qianbei,” Sizhui says. “You look...um…”

    “Scary,” Zizhen breathes, beaming.

    “Who has rejected Lan Zhan?” Wei Wuxian asks.

     

    Or; during one of his visits to the Cloud Recesses, the juniors strike a blow to Wei Wuxian's certainty that his feelings for Lan Wangji are one-sided.

    Summary

    Wei Ying enjoys draping himself over his friends like they're furniture, determined to take up all the space in a room. He chatters mindlessly, endlessly, as he toys with their hair, messes with their clothes, sits in their laps.

    All of his friends, except one.
