"This is the start of the Sunshot Campaign. It's also so different. I don't know what will happen. I don't know what tricks he'll use, or how to avoid them."
"None of us do. This life is already so different from what you've seen, is it not? All we can do now is navigate it as best we can."
Instead of being feared for his power, Wei Wuxian was sought for his mind. Respected.
Once, he'd said, 'I can end this war right now, Lan Zhan, I know I can.'
But he couldn't. Not with a husband, and parents, and a baby nephew, and the Jiang siblings that he'd grown up seeing as close as his siblings, the three of them still united, together.
And not with someone waiting in Yunmeng, being spoiled by Jiang disciples and playing with Hu Haoxiang and eating lotus seeds.
Or, in which the war is fought and won, and there is still settling to happen after that.

On the roof of their little shrine, words were engraved: what matters is you, and not the state of you.
"Me and not the state of me, huh?" Wei Wuxian crouched before them, so the statues were taller than he was. "I think those are pretty much the same, aren't they?"
When he dies, Wei Wuxian is taken care of. When he lives, Wei Wuxian is loved.

The first time Zewu-jun plays for him he is five and the man is trying to comfort him, playing soft songs good for soothing children. It works to a degree but he wants his gege, he wants his gege to play his lullaby. Zewu-jun apologizes and tells him that his gege is hurting right now, and needs to be alone to get better.
When he plays the xiao, A-Yuan says, "you're holding it wrong!"
When he turns fourteen, he learns to play guqin, and is many years ahead of his classmates in that regard. A large factor in that is how much he has practiced Inquiry. He has grown up hearing snippets from the jingshi, of Wangji attempting to reach a spirit that never answers.
When he's sixteen, he hears a familiar tune played in the forest, he and his fellow juniors battling a stone god. It's been years since he's heard it, and he wonders why this man, Mo Xuanyu, knows it so well.
Or, Lan Sizhui grows up and learns, and remembers.

Sixteen years, for some cultivators, is next to nothing.
Sixteen years, to a ghost, is nothing at all.
The Yiling Patriarch had died, and then he hadn't.
Or, Wei Wuxian wakes up sixteen years later. The Lan disciples are there, the sword spirit is there, a braying donkey is there. He leaves them all behind, and chooses another path.
