    Summary

    Wei Wuxian wakes up.

    That would be strange enough on its own, seeing as he's been dead for years, but stranger still is that the person who so rudely summoned him into an earthly form was a woman—and now, that woman's body is his, too.

    Summary

    Lan Wangji goes with Wei Wuxian at Qiongqi Way, following the soon-to-be Yiling Patriarch and the remaining Wens to the Burial Mounds. Wei Wuxian, Lan Wangji, A-Yuan, Wen Qing, and Wen Ning all form a found family alongside the Wen remnants. Even if the world turns against them all, Lan Wangji promises to stay by Wei Wuxian's side forever (even if Wei Wuxian doesn't believe it).

    Summary

    This will probably only make sense if you've seen the movie Midsommar. And it contains spoilers for that movie.

    Will and his friends visit an isolated pagan people called the Hårga during their very special Midsummer festival. Hannibal is a favored son of the community and he welcomes Will in particular, suggesting he might stay and call it home. The Midsummer festival features ritual sex and death and hallucinogenic drugs. Will is the last one standing at the end of a demanding maypole dance and he is crowned the May Queen. He wields a terrible power in this role, sentencing his unworthy boyfriend to a gruesome death as part of the Hårga's sacrifice to their pagan gods. Following this harrowing ceremony, he goes looking for the man who welcomed him in.

    I owe this Hannibal/Midsommar AU directly to @teacupsandtime's and @beatricenius's Twitter musings and to @beatricenius's awesome Hannibal/Midsommar AU art. Thanks for the inspiration, friendos.

    Summary

    Lan Wangji was barely seventeen the day he became a god, his eyes burning with molten gold while his gaze never left Lan Xichen's, a silent promise passing between them.
    .
    ..
    .
    Lan Zhan was barely six when he had sat at the steps of his mother's confinement and had stared silently into the night, heard the whispers of his seniors around him, their sorrowful and hungry gazes. He had been seven when the elders had told him, as it is your elder brother's fate to be sect leader one day, Lan Zhan, so it is your fate to be a sect god.

    --

    And here is the thing: many cultivators -- most of the Lan sect elders and disciples included -- see it as a great honor, to be made into a god. Wen Ruohan proclaimed himself one, his age and powerful cultivation lending credit to the ruse, but this close to being one himself, Lan Wangji could see that it was not quite true. Could see that he was mortal still, and he'd told Lan Xichen as much, that they had a chance to defeat the sun if only they rallied together.

    But the truth is, Lan Wangji didn't see himself as much of a god, and felt no happiness at being turned into one, just as Lan Xichen felt no happiness losing the only brother he's ever had.

    Summary

    Attempt the impossible was still the maxim by which he lived.

    And really, what was more impossible than traveling back in time?

    (Or Wei Wuxian uses a powerful array to go back in time and builds a secret squad to prevent the misfortunes of the future.)
