    Summary

    “Lan Zhaaaaan,” he whines, “are you sure I didn’t imagine that? He actually said he’s hosting our wedding banquet?”
    Lan Wangji looks up from the desk, where he’s been reviewing notes from today’s lectures. “He did.”
    “Jiang Cheng said that?”
    “He did.”
    Wei Ying sighs dramatically. “But what do you think it means?”
    “I think it means he wants to mend things with you,” Lan Zhan says calmly.

    Or: one million times nobody talked about their feelings and one time they did (because I made them)

    Summary

    Sizhui knows these things to be true: neither of his dads are active heroes, Yiling Laozu died a villain, and the biggest hurdle he has right now is doing well as a heroics student in Cloud Recesses.

    Sizhui learns that, in fact, none of these things are true.

    “He said he teaches the support course? He’s not a hero, then?”

    “Not a licensed, professional one, but he’s my personal hero.” Sizhui looks back at his textbook. “He’s expressed his disinterest in going into heroics many times already. Says his quirk’s not suited for it—he can control shadows, to a limited extent, and that’s not optimal for hero work. Plus he’s got a weak constitution. Inventing things makes him happier, anyway.”

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian is staring up at the sky, thinking idly about the taste of Emperor’s Smile on his tongue, when Suibian jumps full force onto his stomach and cries, “A-Xian, don’t be mad!”

    The sheer force of her pounce knocks the breath out of him. The resulting pause is just long enough for Jiang Cheng, who up to this point has been laying rather peacefully next to him, to shoot up and demand, “Oh great, what did you do now?”

    To be fair, the question isn’t exactly unwarranted. Suibian looks an absolute mess: twigs stuck in her fur, dirt smeared across the white fluff of her underbelly. She’s panting up a storm, little heh heh heh gasps that haven’t edged into her normal high-pitched laughter. When her ears press back against her head, she could almost pass for pitiful.

    “Bichen hates me.”

    Wei Wuxian’s first thought is Why would Lan Zhan’s daemon hate you?, but it’s followed quickly by remembering exactly where he is, how little trouble he’s caused today, and the fact that he hasn’t seen Suibian for a few minutes.

    A grin spreads across his face.

    (Or: The most important name a cultivator will ever pick isn’t for their sword. It’s for their daemon.)

    Exactly nobody is happy about this.
