    Bookmarker's Notes

    Martin had a soft spot for Whitman, for the loping rhythm of his words, for the way he talked about people, about love, almost as a thing that he was, rather than just a thing that he felt. And it was always Whitman he thought about when he saw Jon, these days, Whitman’s insistent and unapologetic love springing to mind when he caught sight of him amongst the sea of bright blue uniforms as Martin slipped into the playground. (...)

    Jon had changed, had let himself be changed. Everything about him was soft-touch, these days, the gentle maroon of the cashmere jumper, and the loose hairs that strayed from his braid and fell around his face, and the easy delight of his smile as he caught sight of Martin. So much about him was gentled, yielding to the herd of little ones that tended to crowd around his legs, yielding to Martin as he stepped into Jon’s space, head tilted back to kiss him with a murmured, “Oh, hello, you.”

    Summary

    I hope you find your new role as Head of the Institute as rewarding as captaining the Tundra, wrote Elias Bouchard, to Peter Lukas. There are so many people working there: all with their own interesting lives, and all desiring your attention and support. I'm sure you will relish the challenge it will bring and enjoy every moment spent with the fine men and women of the Institute. In time I'm confident they'll become like a family to you.

    The Magnus Institute has a new boss.
    The Magnus Institute also has a new tech support technician.
    These two facts are unrelated, except they both happen at the same time.

    Meanwhile Jon's woken up from being dead for six months and for once he's trying his best. He just wishes Martin would stop avoiding him and answer his messages...

    Hearing from Institute employees outside the Archives is my favourite thing. They all deserve a pay raise.

    Summary

    When Wei Wuxian died, Lan Wangji was rendered a widower. It turns out, he's the only one who realized that — including his oblivious, clueless husband, who deigns to ask one day if his husband found anyone romantically while he was dead.

    From there, everything unravels: after all, it's one thing for Wei Wuxian to convince himself he had sex with Wen Chao willingly when he didn't know he was married, and another thing entirely to think he did it when he WAS—

    Lan Wangji is not impressed by Wei Wuxian's misplaced guilt and is fully resolved to helping him through his trauma.
