    Summary

    Lan Jingyi lives on a mountain made of rules; quite literally, in fact, since the rules are craven upon the mountain itself. There are over three and a quarter thousand of them, governing everything from the times he is meant to sleep and wake up and to how many bowls of rice he can eat, and Jingyi finds himself breaking them as easily as he breathes.

    In a world where blood and water are nearly the same, Lan Jingyi finds his way home.

    Summary

    Lan Xichen considers him for a moment. “You worry for the future of your clan. And for your house’s succession, though perhaps not yet.”

    “En. If I could find a child to adopt into the family, one whom I could raise, then perhaps...”

    He had expected Xichen to tell him it was a fine idea, or even offer his aid in finding a suitable child. Lan Huan is his dearest friend, after all, and would never leave him to make such a decision alone; but what his sworn brother (and only beloved) says instead is this:

    “If a child would set your mind at ease, I could give you one.”

    “Yes, of course,” Nie Mingjue nods, before realizing what his friend had just suggested. “Wait. What?”

     

    (Or, Lan Xichen and Nie Mingjue have a baby. It's easier than they think.)

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian does not die. The Wen survivors do not die. The Yiling Burial Mounds was not laid siege upon. The Yiling Patriarch erects an invisible barrier around the Yiling Burial Mounds that isolates him and his people from the rest of the world.

    As the years pass, people speak the name Yiling Patriarch to frighten children into being obedient, but the demonized patriarch no longer steps into their world. Tentative peace is observed by the cultivation world and all is well—until one child decides to go night hunting for the demon of Yiling. The secrets connecting the slumbering demon to the great sects of the cultivation world are deep, dark, and unimaginably heinous. What could a child running around cursed lands in hopes of sighting this demon possibly uncover that is more shocking than the history of the Yiling Burial Mounds itself?

    Summary

    He’s retuning. In two days.
    And Wangji never got over him leaving in the first place.
    He’s supposed to return home. Prepare dinner for Suzhui and ensure he does his homework. Then review the lesson plans for his classes the next day and puzzle over the one part of the song he’s composing which doesn’t sound quite right—
    Instead, he finds himself sitting in his car, his phone in his shaking hand, an even more shaky finger hovering over the send command on the screen.
    Did you know Wei Wuxian was coming back to town?
    He doesn’t know which answer will bother him more. That Brother did know, and for some reason decided it was best not to tell him. Or that he didn’t. Which was—unlikely. If Nie Huaisang knew, Nie Mingjue knew, so Brother knew.
    Wangji sighs and starts the car.
    It’s better not to ask a question you won’t like the answer to.

    Summary

    The low lights came back on to show the infamous Silk & Satin. They were hanging suspended from their poles, their bodies upside down and their long legs hooked around the bars of steel, their hair falling down with the tails of their blindfolds and Lan WangJi and Lan XiChen stared.

    Silk was dressed in a pair of tight leather shorts that were so short all they did was hug his hips exposing a sliver of his firm thighs before long, thigh high leather boots covered the rest ending with sharp stilettos that made his legs look a mile long and Lan WangJi knew dimly he shouldn’t be looking but he couldn’t stop, that wide black blindfold effectively hiding his features, a stark contrast to the man’s scarlet lips.

    Glancing to the second pole, Satin with his long black braid was dressed identically, his eyes blindfolded and his lips a deep wine red and Lan XiChen swallowed a little dryly as he tried to ground himself. He was certainly not in the business of seeing live strip shows and this pair of dancers? Performers? Lovers? Left him feeling odd and a little uncomfortable in his own skin and he wondered what Satin's eyes would look like under that wide black band.
