  1. Summary

    Just my version of what happens after the show.

    You don't need to read everything to understand what's going on in the different stories for the most part, but they're all (litghtly) connected.

    Summary

    The first time Ancel found a gray hair he nearly screamed. Except Berenger was asleep in the other room so he took a careful breath instead. He plucked the hair and burned it over the flame of the lamp standing on his dressing table, going back to combing his hair with slow even motions until it shone.

    If he spent extra time that night inspecting the rest of his locks for other traitorous signs of gray, then no one was around to see, or mention it.

    Summary

    “You can go on, if you want,” he said when Zhou Zishu stopped for breath. “Scold and punish me for seven years, then I will scold you for the next seven, and then we’ll have to find something else to do.”

    The thought of years took any other words out of his mouth. Zhou Zishu had gotten used to measuring time in thimblefuls. A New Year’s day, a drift of peach blossoms blown off the trees: each one, perhaps, the last he would see. There wasn’t a container in his mind big enough to hold years, decades, centuries.
