Lan Sizhui grows up missing someone. It’s in the music of a dizi, in a paper butterfly, in the way he rubs his nose unconsciously when he’s upset, in the red ribbon he keeps tucked away, in a million little things he knows even though no one has told him.
Lan Sizhui knows he’s missing his mother. It’s what makes the most sense; his father is grieving, and his mother isn’t here with them to sing him to sleep like Jingyi’s used to do. He can’t remember his mother, and that’s what hurts the most; he doesn’t understand how he can mourn her properly when he doesn’t even remember her.
or the one where Lan Sizhui grows up missing someone he thinks is lost to him forever, gets his memories back and realizes that he was missing the right person in the wrong name, and finally gets his other father back.
"You want Wen Ruohan dead," the Patriarch continued idly. "You want his corpse puppets eliminated. You want his halls burned to the ground and his soldiers disemboweled and begging for mercy. Have I about covered it?"
He gave another knife-edged smile.
"But what will you give me in return?"
"We would be willing to offer quite a bit in return for Wen Ruohan's defeat," Lan Xichen admitted. "But I'm afraid we don't know what an immortal such as yourself desires. Please advise us."
The Patriarch waved at hand at the front of the tent. "I want Second Young Master Lan."
(In which the Sunshot Campaign ends through an arranged marriage to the Yiling Patriarch, and Lan Wangji suffers the mortifying ordeal of falling in love with his own husband.)

Under other circumstances, it would make no sense for a healthy young cultivator’s golden core to be overwhelmed by mere cold, much less for qi infusions to be fruitless. But these caves and the tunnels that connect them are no ordinary place. This attack on Wei Ying--because that’s what it has to be--is intentional: this place, suffused with the presence of Lan Wangji’s ancestors, is attacking the presence of a stranger as automatically as a guard attacks a thief in the night.
The forehead ribbon isn’t enough.
