    Summary

    It's Lan Zhan, standing tall, his hand gripping his sword. Has his hairpiece gotten even more elaborate? Or has Wei Wuxian just forgotten how stately it is? He's at the forefront of the group of Lan cultivators and if the pulsing darkness pushes Wei Wuxian's eyes away, then Lan Zhan draws them like there's nothing else worthy of looking at.

    Wei Wuxian shakes his head at himself. He's been on the road too long. He's thinking in lines of poetry.

    Summary

    "That situation is not good," Lan Qiren said, and Wen Ruohan looked at him sidelong.

    The other man looked perturbed as he watched the Lotus Pier’s training field where the Jiang sect's most junior disciples were playing around with the juniors from the other sects, including perhaps most notably his Wen sect’s juniors, led by his recognized eldest son. It had been dubbed training time by their host, but the children were too young for that to be true; they were really just fooling around.

    The littlest one, round-faced Jiang Cheng, was struggling to keep up, his chubby little arms waving in the air as the other children ran ahead of him, and that was where Lan Qiren’s gaze was focused.

    Summary

    Jiang Cheng just blows his breath out and rolls his eyes right back at Wei Wuxian. "Stop being an asshole," he says. "You're lucky this is being set up for you. Do you know how many people would die--literally die--to get the chance to be betrothed to Lan Wangji?"

    "Betrothed." Wei Wuxian rolls the word around in his mouth. "It even sounds stupid."

     

    Or, an arranged marriage canon-divergent fic where the war doesn't happen, the golden core loss doesn't happen, but Jiang Fengmian and Madame Yu still die, Jiang Cheng is the sect leader, and Lan Wangji is still called Hanguang-jun because, well, look at him.

    Summary

    “Did you break the ward to come in?” Lan Wangji asks, point-blank. He has his sword out and pointed at Wei Wuxian, no bothering with niceties like hello I’m Lan Wangji, and you are?

    Wei Wuxian eyes the sword, but doesn’t react. He keeps lazing back on the roof, casually drinking his wine, as if this is the usual way he meets new people. (And maybe it is! I don’t know your life, Wei Wuxian!)

    Lan Wangji and Wei Wuxian meet on Season 8 of The Cultivation World. Ouyang Zizhen writes the recaps.

    Summary

    “The…Lan sect?” Meng Yao said doubtfully. “Are you sure?”

    “I am,” his mother said, her mouth tight. She looked upset, the way she always did these days when he referenced, intentionally or otherwise, the original plan that she had had to send him to join his father, sect leader of Lanling Jin. She’d raised Meng Yao on a steady diet of stories of what his life would be like when his father finally took him back the way he’d promised her he would, stories that had filled his days and nights for years and years and years, and then just last year she’d suddenly stopped talking about it entirely. It was as if the person who’d told those stories had nothing to do with her.

    Meng Yao didn’t know what had happened, but he assumed it must have been pretty bad.

    “It'll be a good fit,” she added.
