    Summary

    “You want me to call you good?” Wangji says. “To make you feel good?” Wei Ying makes a wretched, soft, surprised sound in the back of his throat. “Then will you be good?”

    “Uh,” Wei Ying says. His lashes flick down again, nervously. “Good how?”

    Wangji hasn’t quite thought that far ahead.

    Summary

    Sizhui cannot plaster a smile on his face and act like he doesn’t want to crawl out of his skin at the mere thought of being affiliated with Cloud Recesses — of being a Lan, in all honesty — like he doesn’t want to burn the whole place down. Logically, it’s probably not true, it’s not a reflection of himself, but something about staying here, in this comfort, and maintaining a sense of normalcy feels like consenting to the genocide of his people. 

    What do you do when your home no longer feels like home? 

    -

    Sizhui leaves.

    Summary

    He was looking for a specific reaction—to get Lan Zhan to lash out. All hard edges and demanding, the same way during the first scrim, Lan Zhan's dark voice had made him loose and obedient, itching to both rebel and obey at the same time.

    It's them, whatever it is, but it doesn't belong on the basketball court.

    Wei Ying didn't expect to enter a weird... something-with-benefits-plus-power-play with the captain of the Gusu basketball team. He's not sure if it's worth it.

    Summary

    No one listens to the radio in this day and age, but somehow from a bunch of left clicking and right clicking, through Facebook and Twitter and Youtube, Wei Ying finds himself on the WQHS homepage—the UPenn student radio station, promising eclectic tastes from a variety of hosts. Wei Ying can't remember giving a shit about his old college's student radio before he dropped out, but it's eleven at night and he has nothing else better to do. He clicks on the button that says Listen Here! and waits to be impressed.

    Summary

    “So what’d you come back for? It’s been ages.”
    “I was hungry,” Lan Zhan replies. Wei Ying laughs.
    “You came all the way back here just because you were hungry?”
    “Mh.”

    Years after his mother's death, Lan Zhan, tired of his life in the city, returns to his childhood home.
