    Summary

    The Margat, the great fortress-temple of the Holy Order of Yorm, stands grey and weary and indomitable on her shard of stone. For Namala, a woman afflicted with the unfortunate ability to see the dead and the hidden forms of demons, the fortress is her last and only hope for safety.

    And the Watchers are kinder than they look. As grim and battered as they are, the paladins have reasons for kindness.

    “Does anyone know?”
     
    Zuko picks a particularly bright star and glares at it. He can get this over with right now, just like he’s done before. “People know, Aang. I’d be surprised if anyone in the Fire Nation didn’t. It wasn’t a secret why I was banished.”

    Summary

    "Why are your advisors up your asshole about inviting me to the conference?"

    Jiang Cheng looks at him weirdly. "Because the whole thing is about how Hanguang-jun is ditching his job to go wallow in marital bliss or whatever. It would be rude not to invite you."

    Wei Wuxian blinks. Then blinks again, then says, "Sorry, what?"

    --
    Apparently Jiang Cheng knows something that Wei Wuxian does not.
