I would like to take a moment, here, to appreciate all the ways in which Mei Changsu is set up as a parallel to/echo of Jingyan’s mother. I mean, besides the really obvious markers like both preferring shades of white, and jade for their hair, there is the beautiful fact that, when Mei Changsu seriously loses his temper and yells at Jingyan, he does it by using Jingyan’s full name. So, while I would never /actually/ wish Inner Palace politics on the poor man, I do have to admit there’s definitely a voice in the back of my head giggling over consort-verse and Jingyan marrying a man just like his mother.

That is the best moment, when he just roars out that line and it hauls Jingyan up short and no one else even bats an eye over it.
