    Summary

    'It's alright, it doesn't count, it's just Fafa.'

    Hua Cheng's chest felt tight. He had no idea why. He rolled over again; he could not get comfortable. What did those words mean, exactly? How did it not count? He had seen Xie Lian naked. How was there no significance in it? Nobody had ever seen Xie Lian naked. Hua Cheng rubbed his forehead irritably. Why was he thinking about this? Did Xie Lian not see him as a man? Hua Cheng pressed his arm over his eyes. He felt like a fool for even having these thoughts. Of course Xie Lian didn't see him in that light. How could he? Hua Cheng did not remember much of his childhood, but he knew one thing; the other children had teased him for having an odd-looking face.

    'It's alright, it doesn't count, it's just Fafa.'

    He rolled on his back. It was like the words had seared themselves into his mind. They were a burning iron and the inside of his head was a cow. He might never stop hearing those words.

    Hua Cheng sunk his teeth into his forearm, exhaling through his nose. He had to stop this. He had to stop having these thoughts. Xie Lian wasn't having these thoughts.

    Summary

    “Thank you,” he whispers eventually. He’d thought Wu Ming had died, dispersed by the vengeful spirits. The grief that had struck him, knowing that the ghost he’d mistreated so badly was his last believer…

    But no. He’s here. Xie Lian glances to his side - Wu Ming kneels quietly, dark hair blowing gently in the wind, chest unbreathing but solid.

    Xie Lian has a second chance, now.

    Wu Ming only disperses temporarily at the end of Book 4. Xie Lian uses his second chance to learn the secret underneath that crescent smile.

    Summary

    There’s something building up inside Hua Cheng, a heap of troublesome desires. They’re inconvenient, shameful, crude. They make his straightforward nature complicated. They’d be better off sealed away forever, if it weren’t for one big problem.

    When Xie Lian kisses him hard enough, Hua Cheng slips into a trance.

    Summary

    “While we’re here, I’mma help you find the man of your dreams!” 

    Lan Wangji almost trips. Wei Wuxian, predictably, does not notice.

    Wei Wuxian taps a finger to his chin, musing. “I’m just um- hm. I’m not sure how to tell if they’re cutsleeves too. But…” He shakes his head, a smile wiping away any trace of discouragement. “I mean, what does that matter, right? Anyone with eyes would want you for a lover, so it’s really more of a matter of who you like!”

    “What.”

    “At least that’s what I think anyways! I’ve only ever liked girls but even I would make an exception for you.”

    “/What./”

    Before Lan Wangji can choke out a response, Wei Wuxian is grabbing his wrist. “Come on come on come on, let’s go find your true love!”

    ---------------------------------------------------------

    (In which Wei Wuxian catches on to Lan Wangji's blatant homosexuality- and, eventually, his own.)

    Summary

    1300 years ago, the Guardians defeated the Bogeyman and drove him and his Night Mares back into their realm of darkness.
    (Except, they sort of didn't, because Wei Wuxian would prefer to argue that he gave up and they got lucky, and his realm isn't Dark thank you very much, it's got Ambience.)

    So why was it, now that he's back, that they seemed to uncharacteristically Not want to turn on him?
    (Could be the Mechanical Body Parts, the corrupted Night Mares, the rogue Spirits and the corruption within the Court of the Moon itself)

    And no one is acting more out of character than Lan Wangji
    (We all know why)
