    Summary

    Shang Qinghua is miserable as an outer disciple of Cang Qiong Mountain Sect, doubtful that the plot will ever begin, when he finally runs into his first character. Yue Qingyuan is only a boy in desperate need of a helpful friend. Well, why shouldn't Shang Qinghua be that friend? A little investment now when they're young and Shang Qinghua might just be able to survive this world with the support of a sect leader.

    It's definitely not because he's also in desperate need of a friend.

    (He's definitely not expecting love.)

    Summary

    “In my defense,” Tianlang-jun says as he elegantly lowers himself to sit cross-legged on the floor of the Holy Mausoleum, “I’ve never brought anyone back from the dead before. As far as complications go…this is relatively manageable, wouldn’t you agree?”

    The question is directed towards a young child swimming in black robes far too elaborate and spacious for his minuscule size. The child simply blinks his big, dark eyes in response. It’s an incredibly familiar mannerism, and one that has only gotten cuter amidst accidental age regression. 

    Tianlang-jun brings Zhuzhi-lang back to life. It doesn't quite go as planned.

    Summary

    OK this series has been going on for 2 years now and I should summarize it better.
    The first part is several decades of, largely, Geralt and Jaskier's interactions, as they both fumble together toward some kind of meaningful understanding. That section largely concludes with a Jaskier/Geralt/Yennefer endgame.

    Then there's a time jump, and the series picks up after the events of the Witcher 3 games. I follow Lambert as he copes with grief, and Keira as she learns new things about herself, and the lives they make.

    I decided to tell the story of how Ciri became Empress after W3, which intersects with Keira and Lambert's adventures; I read the books somewhere in this and got invested in some of the themes they brought up. And entangled with this, I got interested in the politics of the North, especially the Upper Aedirn Free State and the threads laid down in the Witcher 2 game that didn't exactly get resolved in Witcher 3, and so I have several stories dealing with that thread, which will intersect with the other stories in the same timeline.

    See notes for chronological dates and what order the stories really ought to go in!

    Summary

    “You know what?” Wei Ying said. “I think we should be friends.”

    “Vulcans do not have friends,” said Lan Zhan. He was staring very determinedly at the screen in front of him.

    Wei Ying frowned at him. “That can’t be right.”
