    Summary

    It all happened too fast.

    One moment Lan WangJi stood between them and the next one he stood right in front of Wei Wuxian. The latter quickly grabbed one of WangJi's hand, bringing it against his belly, smile growing impossibly wider. For a few seconds everything seemed too quiet, Lan WangJi trying to assimilate what was going on.

    Then, in the flash of a moment, his whole body went a bit tense and his eyes opened wide, his other hand moving to rest beside the other as he got a bit closer.

    Summary

    “We meet during the night so often I didn’t realize just how light your eyes are under the sunlight.”

    His fingers crawl over the plane of wood, moving slowly as if tip-toeing forward, as if they were personified, sneaking closer and closer. “Why do you never smile? I know a lot of things happened, but I’m starting to think it’s too bad, a little sad really?” Even when he tilts his head, and he scoots closer, the man simply stares back, though looks at him confused, because obviously none of his words are understood. Wei Wu Xian isn’t really concerned about that though, and possibly, he speaks all these because he can’t understand him. Imagine if he did.

    Would he be mad?

    ---

    Inspired by Brian Friel's play 'Translations'.

    In a world where the Wens rule, Lan Wang Ji is forcefully sent to live in the Jiang Sect. Although Wei Wu Xian tries to befriend him, his attempts are for the most part ignored. Maybe he's annoyed by his excessive loudness AND assertiveness. But maybe, the language barrier has a role in his lack of words.

    Summary

    There was a ghost that haunted the decks of Lotus Pier, it was said. If you stepped across the wooden planks at night, walked along the endless docks and flying purple banners, he would appear.

     

    He was always in darkest black, dressed as specter and shadow. In the emptiness where a face should be was a thick fog, features washed away and leaving behind only glimmering red eyes.

     

    He looked ferocious as a ghoul, it was said.

     

    Jin Ling thought he looked sad.

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian hadn't actually intended to end up in the Cloud Recesses after the siege of the Burial Mounds. He certainly hadn't intended to become an urban legend. And yet, here he is.

    (Or, Wei Wuxian flees to the Cloud Recesses after the siege and accidentally becomes the local cryptid. As one does.)

    Summary

    “Who are you?” the man asks.

    “Who are we? Who are you?” Jiang Cheng pops off at him because his immediate reaction to anything is anger.

    The guy doesn’t react to the screaming. Wei Ying starts trying to figure out how they can get away from this crazy guy with a sword when he can already out pace them when he suddenly recognizes him past the old fashioned hanfu and the extra hair. “Lan Zhan?” he asks, wondering when his roommate got into cosplaying period dramas.

    Despite Jiang Cheng immediately blaming him, Wei Ying swears he had nothing to do with them falling through a ceiling and crash landing next to xianxia versions of themselves.
