    Summary

    Wei Ying first hears about the ball over dinner.

    "They're trying to marry off Second Prince," Fourth Uncle says, through a mouthful of stew. "There is going to be a ball, for all the gentry." "Everybody who's rich and titled, who's got a son or daughter the right age, will be invited. Second Prince will pick someone out."

    "He's probably very stuffy and full of himself!" Wei Ying snorts. "I pity whoever has to marry him!"

    (In which Wei Ying, a fugitive from justice, sneaks into the palace, steals from the imperial family, and eats his words.

    AKA, yet another Cinderella AU.)

    Summary

    Lan Wangji should refuse. He should. He looks back down at the mask. Beneath it is the soft creamy paper of the invitation. He could present this at the door and slip into the palace and—

    “Go see him, Wangji,” Lan Xichen says quietly, and Lan Wangji feels his resolve crumble beneath him.

    A very loose Cinderella AU, featuring Lan Wangji as Cinderella, Wei Wuxian as Prince Charming, Lan Xichen as fairy godmother, the forehead ribbon as glass slipper, and GusuLan bedtime as midnight.

    Summary

    Thirteen years ago, Wei Wuxian brought scandal and shame down upon his head and was thrown out of the competitive ballroom dance circuit. He vanished, never to be heard from again.

    Lan Wangji aches when he remembers the way Wei Ying danced--like a laugh given movement and form. He has never stopped searching for him.

    Summary

    Meng Yao's sister-in-law is following the Jiang tradition of being evil. Why else would she try to set him up with a married man?

    “I’m pretty sure my sister-in-law is trying to ruin my life.” 

    Lan Huan’s tone is one of genuine curiosity when he asks, “Why would she do that?” 

    “I don’t know yet,” Meng Yao untangles himself from the barre and crosses his arms across his chest, looking up (and up, and up, curse Jiang Yanli for her knowledge of his tastes) at Lan Huan’s very handsome jawline. “But I need you to make less vigorous eye-contact until you bring me a notarized waiver saying your spouse doesn’t care about you hitting on me.”
