    Summary

    To say that he runs to his car would be incorrect, as he is a Lan, and running is both undignified and unnecessary unless in immediate danger. Nor does he slam his key into the ignition, or aggressively swerve around the cars on the freeway, or have a mild panic attack at the fact he is picking A-Yuan up late from school for the first time ever.

    He comes close, though.

    By the time he arrives, it’s 4:35PM, and he has imagined about fifty different worse-case scenarios. The door is partly open when he gets to it, a messy label of 104B—Art Room scrawled with chalk on a placard next to the faded wood. As he opens it fully, he expects to see a wailing, terrified child, or perhaps a scene of utter misery and betrayal.

    What he finds is his son, hands covered in paint, being sung to by a beautiful, dark-haired stranger.

    “Ducks live in the pond, yellow ducks, happy ducks!”

    Lan Wangji stops in his tracks.

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian drops his hand, leans one shoulder into the stunted door frame. “Oh. Okay. So. Why are you here, exactly?”

    “The Institute sent me to assist you,” the ridiculously beautiful cardigan owner says, “as your familiar.”

    Wei Wuxian laughs as if it’s a joke, although the man’s stony expression makes it clear that any humor gleaned from him is likely unintentional.

    “Well, uh, I appreciate your,” Wei Wuxian says, “you know, time, but everything is under control here, actually.”

    With impeccable timing, a tea-kettle sound keens from the kitchen, followed by a contained bang.

    Or: Wei Wuxian is a witch, Lan Wangji is sent to be his familiar. They figure it out.

    Summary

    A fusion of the novel backstory with the drama canon. Because ten thousand years of angst was to tasty to resist, and gods are fun to play with.

    Summary

    “We’re in this together, you know,” Wei Wuxian says. “You’re dead. I used to be dead. We're both tolerated and incredibly unwelcome here. We both annoy the same people, as far as I can tell. I’ve built relationships on less. Let’s work this out.”

    But again, there’s no response.
