    Summary

    Rather than mourning a future that had not happened yet, he would rather work with all his might to prevent it from happening. [...] His aim was to fortify his home and his family so that they would never again be left vulnerable to greedy cultivators aiming for his genius. For that, he needed help.

    He may be a genius, but he was not the cunning manipulative man they thought him to be.

    No, that was not him.

    He knew who was, though.

    (Or: Wei Wuxian uses a powerful array to go back in time and builds a secret squad to prevent the misfortunes of the future.)

    Summary

    In hindsight it had been a mistake. He shouldn't have gone after the creature by himself. But maybe it would be worth it in the end? Dying while protecting innocent people from certain harm, was the cultivator way to go after all. Maybe, it was worth it. If the last thing that he did was an act that no one in the cultivator world could condemn him for. He had acted as a cultivator should, no tricks, no resentful energy. Just him, his Suibian and his golden core, and the creature. At least this time he would die an honourable man. Maybe, this time some people other than Lan Zhan would grieve him. He might even deserve it this time.

    Summary

    Wen Ruohan had three children. However, all those living in Nightless City could attest to the fact that Wen Ruohan favored his youngest child, his only daughter, Wen Wuxian.

    Wen Wuxian grew up an intelligent child, known for her endless curiosity and sharp tongue. It was what got her father's attention, but also what caused her ultimatum. Was it when she tried to manipulate her father? Was it when she first handled the resentful energy? Or was it when missed the curfew at Cloud Recesses?

    It probably didn't matter when, if Wen Wuxian had to be honest. She had chosen her side, fully aware the heavy consequences that stood in her path.

    Summary

    Lan WangJi catches Wei WuXian before he falls from the cliff during the Nightless City Bloodbath. When the world wants him dead, Lan WangJi has no choice but to hide him from the world. Together, they work through unacknowledged trauma, mutual infatuation and horrible communication skills, clearing Wei WuXian’s name, and petting a lot of bunnies along the way—all while attempting to long-distance raise Lan Yuan. It’s quite simple.

    -

    Or: an AU where Lan Wangji manages to save Wei Wuxian during the Nightless City Bloodbath, and how that changes everything in a story about reconciliation, exoneration, and mutual pining between two oblivious idiots.

    Summary

    Wangji is a Lan. He knows and follows the rules. All 3000+ of them. Demonic Cultivation is clearly a violation of those rules, and yet… Wangji doesn’t want to punish Wei Ying, he just wants to protect him.

    Summary

    Maybe he shouldn’t have bothered to come all this way. There was no reason to even pretend to care about a person the entire cultivation world had labelled a criminal, especially now that...Jin Zixuan couldn’t make himself finish the thought.

    Instead, he cleared his throat and said, “Father is sending troops to ambush you in a week’s time.”

    Jin Zixuan walked into Yiling on a mission, and left with more than he bargained for.

    Summary

    “Lan Zhan,” Wei Ying had whispered. “Lan Zhan, you will have to protect me. Madam Yu is definitely going to kill me for real this time around,” he had said jokingly, but something about how he said it made Lan Wangji pause. There was a hint of something in his tone, that Lan Wangji didn't like. His mind supplied memories of Wei Ying's bare upper body and the scarring on his back.

    Later, Lan Wangji would think back to this moment and recognize the genuine fear that Wei Ying had tried to mask with his typical nonchalant attitude. Later, Lan Wangji would hold Wei Ying's crushed clarity bell in his hands and knew whose blood had coated it red. Later, Lan Wangji would regret leaving Wei Ying behind.

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian is thrown into the Burial Mounds, ends up err...you know with surprisingly horny resentful energy. Then brings it with him when he returns to the cultivation world.

    Lan Wangji does not approve (at first).

    Mostly smut set in 4 different parts of the cannon story, held together by squinting hard at the plot, angst, and a surprising amount of emotions (everyone, including the resentful energy, has feelings. Even the author is shocked).

    Dark with angst and grief elements, but not nearly as dark as some of the tags make it seem. Dub-con very temporary. Eventual happy ending.

    Summary

    “Lan Wangji, why do you choose to be at odds with me now?” Wei Wuxian asked. “Who do you think you are?”

    Lan Wangji only just managed to keep himself from flinching. “How can you ask that?” he whispered. “What happened in Lotus Pier—”

    “Happened a long time ago,” Wei Wuxian cut him off, voice cold. “It’s no more than a dream.”


    Wei Wuxian is back and Lan Wangji wants to pick up where they left off, but Wei Wuxian is keeping secrets and Lan Wangji doesn't know how to fix what is broken between them.

    Summary

    “It- it was an accident,” Wen Ning tried, before Wei Wuxian jumped in.

    “It was all my fault, Wen Qing, all my fault. I wasn’t paying enough attention, I should never have let the talisman go off, it won’t happen again.”

    “Yes, it will,” she sighed, but stepped back. “Do you at least know what the talisman did?”

    Wei Wuxian looked sheepish. “Well,” he began.

    Wen Ning inched back a little. Wei Wuxian was standing very close, having physically inserted himself between Wen Ning and his sister, and he was so warm. Wen Ning thought about Cloud Recesses, about Wei Wuxian’s hands on him, adjusting his archery stance. He was grateful that this strange half-life he found himself caught in seemed to have dulled his physical reactions, because any blush might have been seized on as a sign of an effect of the talisman, and he didn’t think he could bear that kind of scrutiny.

    Summary

    Hanguang-jun had told him. Days after the fall of Koi Tower, mere hours before he announced his intent. No more Jins. He told Wen Ning, "I would not ask you to be part of this. I only wish you to know."

    "Know?" Wen Ning had said.

    "That I haven't abandoned him," he had said, and explained the shape of his madness.

    Wen Ning had followed him since.
     

    Or: Lan Wangji realizes he's been lied to. He realizes too late. Jiang Yanli keeps her loom. Gusu swirls with tempest. The sects are united.

    Koi Tower has fallen.

    Summary

    “Who are you?”
    The boy grins, deliberately showing off his canines and Wei Wuxian knows that look. It’s the look of someone starving but trying not to show his hunger. Only—Wei Wuxian’s pretty sure this boy isn’t looking for food.
    If he did, he came to the wrong place, anyway. There’s barely enough to go around.
    “I’m your new disciple,” the boy says, pushing off the post. His smile goes sharp again, assessing. “I want to learn demonic cultivation. You’re some sort of grandmaster, right? The founder? I wanna learn from the best.”
    Wei Wuxian fights the urge to laugh out loud. This lad has no idea what he’s asking. Wei Wuxian’s not the grandmaster of anything.

    Summary

    “Be gone!” the pile of rags yelled, leaping up. “All those who disturb the sleep of the Yiling Laozu shall face the wrath of the Burial Mounds! The Blood Pool will boil over and scald the flesh from your bones! Fierce corpses will tear you limb from limb!”

    Lan Wangji startled back, coming up hard against the cave wall. The rags, seeing that he was moving towards the entrance, began waving apologetically.

    “Aiya, no, don’t go!” The frayed blankets dropped to reveal a boy around Lan Wangji’s age. “I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I thought you were one of the Wen brothers. The Blood Pool won’t really do any of that, I promise.”

    “Who … who are you?” Lan Wangji managed.

    “I’m the Yiling Laozu, of course,” said the boy, with a shrug. “Who else would I be?”
