    Summary

    “Okay,” Jingyi says, as Sizhui puzzles this out aloud. “Okay! So the demon has been turning its victims into children.”

    “I think so,” Sizhui says.

    “To make them easier prey,” Jingyi says.

    “Yes,” Sizhui says.

    “So—” Jingyi’s voice cracks here, “this kid is Senior Wei.”

    Wei Wuxian, still tangled in his own massive robes, blinks politely at them.

    (Or: Wei Wuxian is cursed on a night-hunt, and the junior quartet rapidly finds themselves in over their heads.)

    Summary

    “And here you are,” Yibo agrees. “What’s next?”

    Xiao Zhan shrugs. “Another flight, further out. A ship if I can sign on to one.” He grins at the thought, then peeks at Yibo. “I don’t suppose you know a crew who’s looking for a mechanic? I’m good with my hands,” he says, wiggling his fingers.

    Yibo raises his eyebrows and Xiao Zhan feels his ears turn hot. “Why not a ship of your own?” Yibo asks.

    Xiao Zhan snorts. “I didn’t cash in that much.”

    “You might be surprised,” Yibo says, and Xiao Zhan deflates a little.

    “And you were doing so good at not being a salesman,” he says resignedly, and Yibo grins.


    Xiao Zhan leaves the quiet, stable life of a shipyard mechanic for adventure in the stars; adventure finds him after the third drink.

    Summary

    “Hanguang-jun,” Wei Wuxian repeats. His heart clenches. He wants—but he’d really meant to have this nightmare stuff down before they met again, so he wouldn’t find himself relying on Lan Wangji’s nearness. He’s not supposed to go back yet. But he’s so tired, and his will crumbles. “Yeah,” he says. “All right. Take me back to Gusu with you.”

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian returns from his year of travel with dirt under his nails, weeks of rain and road dust and battle sweat soaked in his clothing, his bag overflowing with half-finished inventions, scribbled reports, and a dozen too many souvenirs.

    (And a whole lot of unprocessed emotional growth)

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian plays the flute. Someone in Wei Wuxian's apartment complex plays violin. Sometimes, they play the flute and the violin together, and it's... nice. It's really nice. It's sort of the nicest thing going on in his life right now, honestly.

    It's like the poets say: Music is love in search of a word.
