“Just do what you can, Senior Wei!” Sizhui whispers. “We’ll be right here!” “Yeah!” Jingyi says. “And just remember: it’s going to be a disaster either way, so it’s not like there’s much you can do about it!” (Or: Lan Wangji and Jiang Cheng plan a discussion conference together. It goes about as well as Wei Wuxian expects.)

Wei Wuxian sits up a little further. Then instantly regrets it. “Go to bed, Jiang Cheng,” he groans. “I’ll live.” “Will you?” Jiang Cheng says. “Because if you die in my guest room, Gusu Lan will have my head.” He and Jin Ling really are the same person, sometimes.

And it’s apparently not helping. “Not all of Gusu Lan,” he says mildly. “I think the elders would send gifts.” (Or: an unexpected stay in Lotus Pier.)
