    Summary

    After a while he can feel a palm against his face, gentle fingers soft and soothing. It’s not real, not exactly: he can tell the difference between a ghost’s touch and a living person’s, between a spirit-vision and an overactive imagination. His education has been thorough. But the beating has also been thorough, so for now he forgets what he knows and leans into it, into the hand cupping his cheek. It’s soft and dry as those forgotten petals, as the touch of a pillow. He can smell wildflowers, can taste blood and dirt. My baby, his mother says, and he closes his eyes. My treasure. He barely remembers the sound of her voice, but the feeling of it is just the same. Just the same as ever.

     

    [In which Lan Wangji loses almost everything, plants a garden, and grows a second chance.]

    Summary

    “And who will you say is the father of your child?” Jaime asked instead, pragmatically. “You're unwed. If I must give my child another life, it will not be that of a bastard.”

    In which Brienne offers to raise Jaime's child as her own, and Jaime convinces her to marry Tormund so his child will have a father. But that's only the beginning of their story.

    Summary

    Jin Guangyao lifts his head and smiles. "I'm considering a problem."

    "Can I be of any assistance with it?"

    He drops a kiss on Lan Xichen's chest. With the nail of one finger he lightly traces the characters for irony on Lan Xichen's side. "Not this one, er-ge."
