    Summary

    Wangji shuts his eyes and rocks A-Yuan and thinks about Wei Ying, Wei Ying. The sound of his laugh; the rage in his eyes at any cruelty, no matter how small. Water running down his face, mixed with tears and mud in the rain. The smell of his sweat and his combing-oil when he stood too close in the cold spring. His face when he’d said, I’ll carry you, too many years ago. If there is anything left of him, Wangji will still love it. It’s not even a question.

    When he opens his eyes all the candles in the room sputter at once, and go out.

    And then they come back again, as easily as they were extinguished. Wangji looks up, to find a tall shadow in the doorway.

    Wangji is not afraid.

    “Wei Ying,” he says. “Come in.”

    Summary

    "You're exactly the man they say you are, aren't you?" He said it like it was an oddity, something rare to be picked up and studied closely. There was a burning kind of intensity in his eyes that was a far cry from the dismissive glances Damen had earned from Laurent so far this evening.
    "And you aren't, I'm beginning to suspect."

    After centuries of war, Akielos and Vere are on the eve of a historic peace treaty. At a lavish ball in celebration, Damen meets the Veretian prince, every bit as obnoxious as the rest of his people and as reluctant to bond with his new allies as Damen is himself. But perhaps, by the end of the night, the idea of welcoming a Veretian into his country, his palace, and maybe even his bed, won't seem like such a bad one.

    Summary

    Something hit Lan Wangji’s cheek, knocking his head to the side and leaving behind a sharp sting. It took a moment for Lan Wangji to realize he had been slapped. “Pay attention when I’m talking to you,” one of the Wen soldiers barked. Lan Wangji glanced at his face for a short moment before demonstratively looking off into the middle-distance again.

    Lan Wangji gets captures by a group of Wen soldiers during the Sunshot Campaign. Wei Wuxian comes to rescue him.

    Summary

    "Betrothed," Wei Ying says indignantly.

    Lan Wangji can't stop his gaze from darting up to him. Wei Ying understands. Wei Ying is looking at him, wide-eyed and upset on his behalf.

    "And you don't even like her," Wei Ying says.

    "I don't even know her," Lan Wangji says quietly.

    "But even if you did—" Wei Ying starts.

    "I wouldn't want this," Lan Wangji finishes.
