So, I finally get the Jingrui and Yujin’s Political Adventures story out the door, and promptly the Yuwen Nian bunny starts flipping its ears at me again. So back I go to re-watch bits of episodes to nail down a few facts. And I happen to breeze past Consort Yue putting on her poor-pitiful-me act for the Emperor and recommending Consort Xushu stand in the Empress’ stead for New Year. Wherein she mentions that Xushu has raised a grown Princess.

And suddenly I’ve got Linyang (lin as in jade, but quite deliberately gesturing to lin as in forest as in Emperor’s then-best-buddy Lin Xie), age 40 or thereabouts, waltzing around my head, trying to figure out exactly what subject prince she got married off to, and picking out livery colors for her ladies in waiting, and very quietly rolling her eyes over being stuck as chaperone for Nian until the banquet because Liyang looked about to cut someone when /she/ was suggested.

I mean, yes, my unofficial motto for this whole arc is Women Being Fucking Awesome but really. One line! *bangs her head on the desk*

The princess is named and plays a role in the novel already, in case you didn't know -- her name is Xiao Jingning
