    Summary

    Wei Wuxian had a lot more leeway than most teachers, showing his class how to transcribe Black Pink for traditional instruments, and letting them use his practice room as a space to goof off. He'd rolled his eyes at "Memories of Our Past" as the Winter Recital theme, but supposed it was to be expected, and then set about helping the kids find clever ways to interpret it. As it was, they still had four girls submit oration of the Ballad of the Yiling Patriarch, who had to be coerced into performing it together, and then had a fight over who would get to speak the final quarter, when the Yiling Patriarch and the poet finally declare their feelings for one another.

    "It's about the longing," Wei Wuxian had told three pouting girls. "The ending is good, because of all the sadness beforehand. Each part is important."
     

    Wei Ying and Lan Zhan haven't seen each other in years. The students have a plan.

    Summary

    Lan Wangji gritted his teeth, wishing to just be left alone. "I am looking for my soulmate," he ground out.

    "Oh."

    It took Lan Wangji a few moments to realize that Wei Wuxian had stopped following him. When he looked back, the other boy seemed to be frozen to the spot, eyes wide and lips still parted. He quickly looked away when he saw Lan Wangji looking back. "I see. Well, have a good trip!"

    --

    At six years old, Lan Zhan met his soulmate on the streets of Yiling and promptly lost him again.

    At sixteen years old, Lan Wangji met his betrothed and was determined not to like him.

    Summary

    “We raised a child together,” Jiang Wanyin says, voice thick with pain. “You two were sworn brothers.” He swallows hard and oh. Oh, no. Lan Xichen is not ready for this conversation. He is never going to be ready for this conversation. “And because of what he did, there is nowhere outside this room that either of us can mourn him.”

    Lan Xichen has been in seclusion for half a year, healing, he thinks, from the way his world was upended that night in a temple in Yunping City. Then, Jiang Wanyin comes to visit—breaking the fragile peace he has been building, but offering, perhaps, a better healing.

    Summary

    “Mo Xuanyu’s revenge,” Lan Wangji says dully. “It is finished.”

    Wei Ying hangs onto Lan Wangji’s hand, his palm clammy. “I guess that means I’m finished too. He got what he wanted.”

    “You are not finished.” Lan Wangji grips his hand tighter and pulls him closer. “We are not finished.”

    (Or: the one where Wei Wuxian shares Lan Wangji's body with him after the sacrificing curse ends and takes his body with it.)
