    Summary

    “Xiongzhang,” Wangji choked out, sliding to the ground in front of Xichen. “I love him. He is the other half of my soul.”

    Oh. No. Oh, no.

     

    The Beifeng, that mighty empire of the north, invaded more than a year ago, moving inexorably south and east, toppling the cities of Qinghe and Qishan, and now wait, camped outside of Lanling.

    In order to buy peace, the chief of the Lan clan has given the Beifeng warlord a gift, his second oldest son in marriage.

    However, he did not consult his oldest son, and when Xichen finds out that his brother has been given away, as though he was no more than a vase or painting, he makes a plan. He, too, can give a gift, and he will not regret it.

    What he finds with the Beifeng, with the warlord, with the people he meets, and within himself, is not at all what he expects.

    Summary

    Jiang Cheng blinks. “Dammit, they do think you’re dating one of us! I hate it when Wei Wuxian is right.”
    “Excuse me?” Nie Huaisang gives him an incredulous look. “First of all, they think I’m dating you, and if anything, they’re getting more aggressive!”

    (or, the one in which Jiang Cheng has too many relatives, not enough patience, goes through a brother-divorce and finds out he has a boyfriend - in that order, more or less.)

    Summary

    "You weren't at Nightless City." it's not an insult, or an accusation. Just observation. 

    "Da-ge said it would be too dangerous. I couldn't sleep all night that day. And then I got the news about Wei-xiong." 

    "It's good you weren't there," Lan Wangji suddenly decides. "Your last memory of Wei Ying shouldn't be…" he trails off. Shouldn't be someone completely different from who he really was.
    -
    During a travel in Qinghe, he takes the opportunity to greet Nie Huaisang as the new Nie sect leader.

    Summary

    “Nie Huaisang?” he demands, stumbling down the dirt path towards him. “What- are you the one who took down my wards?!”

    He looks—awful. His eyes are sunken, his cheeks sallow. The robes he is wearing are nothing like the luxurious fabric he used to wear when he was still Yunmeng Jiang’s first disciple. Instead they are thread beard and worn, from a coarse fabric that looks irritating to the skin. There is a shakiness to his gait that Nie Huaisang has never seen from his friend, who always walked with such a presence as if to defy a world that has sentenced him to death.

    “Of course it was me!” he scolds. “You really should take better care and hide your talismans.”

    Wei Wuxian, rudely enough, ignores his (useful!) advice and instead looks at him like he’s mad. “What are you doing here?”

    “Betraying the gentry and siding with evil, duh,” Huaisang rolls his eyes. “Now, will you let me in? I’m hungry.”
