    Summary

    The man on the smudged laptop screen, captured in the pixelated glory of Mo Ran’s dashcam footage, stares wide-eyed and vulnerable into the camera as death comes careening towards him. His expression is unguarded, wet hair plastered to pale cheeks, mouth softened as if on the precipice of a gasp, while the livid gleam of the stop light scatters violently red off the slick asphalt, and paints the stranger in a rosy faience.

    He’s beautiful.

    Mo Ran hasn’t been blessed with the most extensive of vocabularies, and can’t give voice to the purple prose a more talented tongue might offer, but he knows beautiful when he sees it. He’s been staring with unrepentant fascination at this same freeze-frame image for over an hour now, captivated, his cramped bedroom illuminated only by the battered laptop’s fifteen-inch display.

    Summary

    “A-Sang,” Lan Huan greets, and Mingjue turns to look at him. Lan Huan smiles reassuringly, then inclines his head towards the newcomer. “This is Mingjue.”

    A-Sang hesitates, then inhales sharply before smiling at Mingjue. It’s a nice smile, and something in Mingjue tells him, you’re safe here, with them, and he smiles back.

    “It is a pleasure to meet you,” Mingjue says seriously, because Mother would be upset with him if he wasn’t polite. “My little brother is called A-Sang too.”

    What if instead of dying, Nie Mingjue regressed in age from the qi deviation?

    Summary

    Summary

    It feels like forever has passed twice since that night at the Guanyin Temple, but it’s been barely two weeks since then, not even a full day since he met with Wei Wuxian outside Cloud Recesses. The Headshaker is supposed to cry for his San-ge, for the man who kept the Nie Sect afloat all these years. And he could. He could fast, wear white, go into seclusion. No-one would object, even now that Jin Guangyao’s crimes are public knowledge. That poor boy, they’d say. He never was cut out to be a sect leader. It must be so hard, finding out such horrible things about your own sworn brother after relying on him for so long. How will Qinghe Nie survive now?

    He could do all of that. It would be easy. Easier than tackling the mess he’s made, anyway.

    But it’s been ten years. Nie Huaisang is tired of pretending.

     

     —

     

    Jin Guangyao is dead. Life keeps moving. Nie Huaisang does not.
