    Summary

    A well-travelled, vastly over-educated Wei Wuxian returns to his alma mater as a teacher and discovers he'll be working alongside his former senior school rival, Lan Wangji. But the past has always been more complicated than he understood—and they were never really rivals.

    Summary

    ‘Lower your head, HanGuang-Jun,’ said Wei Ying. ‘You know what, can you please sit down? You’re too tall. I miss my old height.’

    Lan Zhan did as he was told, belatedly saying, ‘I can wash myself, Wei Ying.’

    Snorting, Wei Ying flicked water at Lan Zhan’s face, then wiped it away with his thumb. ‘Don’t even, I know you love it when I do this.’

    Summary

    It was a beautiful, sunny day. A crisp, cool breeze was blowing, offset by the warm rays of the sun. The grass was vibrantly green, sprinkled with tiny white flowers. The rabbits were out, hopping contentedly around their meadow, practically begging to be picked up and cuddled. All of it was made surreal by the fact that a six-year-old Lan WangJi sat in the middle of the clearing, silently petting a black rabbit that had made itself comfortable on his lap.

    Wei WuXian sat nearer the edge of the meadow, legs crossed at the ankles, chin in hand, and his elbow resting on his knee. He stared at Lan WangJi, searching for happiness in him.

    Summary

    Lan Wangji opens his mouth. He closes it. He is blisteringly aware of how absurd it sounds for him to say, I am you, only happier. The truth, perhaps, is not always the best choice.

    Summary

    There’s something tickling Jace’s cheek, so he wipes it away. He realizes it’s a tear when the back of his hand comes away wet.

    “Are you crying?” Alec sounds shocked.

    “No. There’s just something in my eye.”

    “Yes,” Alec says. “Emotions.”

    Or: Alec gets engaged (again), so Jace throws him a bachelor party. There’s alcohol, lots of reminiscing, and absolutely no strippers.
