Premise from Goodreads.com: "The Story of the Stone" (c. 1760) is one of the greatest novels of Chinese literature. The first part of the story, The Golden Days, begins the tale of Bao-yu, a gentle young boy who prefers girls to Confucian studies, and his two cousins: Bao-chai, his parents' choice of a wife for him, and the ethereal beauty Dai-yu. Through the changing fortunes of the Jia family, this rich, magical work sets worldly events - love affairs, sibling rivalries, political intrigues, even murder - within the context of the Buddhist understanding that earthly existence is an illusion and karma determines the shape of our lives.

But who lives in the Capitol, you say?
The flamboyant seadwellers, with their riches and finery and outlandish appearances. There are also avoxes (avoxi?) who live in the Capitol, mainly comprised of the Limeblood/Mutants (and other bloodcolored) rebels.

"Have you been doing alright?" She asked, stepping up to him. Avren looked around seeing what was going on, she wasn't supposed to be here, and that did worry him.
There were multiple, so much to be called as districts, but we called them divisions. Each one had a certain type of task. One of them took the food on, the other the clothing, and the last one, well that was her's. Her father did mining, and he only prayed they wouldn't desperately need to use the girls. He knew they were capable, but, he couldn't help but worry of Capris getting hurt. Avren finally looked back to her after a long sweep of the area, "Oh. I've been ok. Really just... enjoyyying the clothing work." Avren said with a slight chuckle.
"You poor poor." She giggled. "Oh. I have a gem for you. When my father was mining h
