    Summary

    From a young age, Wei Wuxian has told himself and anyone who will listen that he’s never getting married.

    Then he gets off on the wrong foot with the cold, aloof, wealthy, irritatingly pretty Hanguang-jun.

    After that, Wei Wuxian tells himself he’s definitely never getting married.

    (A Pride & Prejudice-inspired AU.)

    Summary

    “So,” says Jiang Cheng. “You’re in love with Hanguang-jun, and now you think your roommate is hot.”

    “Lan Zhan is objectively good looking,” Wei Wuxian says immediately. He runs through the rest of the accusation in his head and frowns. “And I’m not in love with Hanguang-jun.”

    Jiang Cheng’s eyebrow ticks. “Yeah right,” he says. “Tell me that once you’ve stopped flirting with him every time you’re assigned to the same hit.”

    (Or, while Yiling Laozu and Hanguang-jun are rivals as assassins, Wei Wuxian falls in love with his roommate, Lan Wangji.)

    Summary

    The first time Lan Wangji sees Wei Wuxian, it’s the evening before their first day of classes, and Wei Wuxian is sneaking into one of the academy’s shuttles.

    The boy turns a wide-eyed gaze onto Lan Wangji. “Could you—do you mind letting go of my wrist?” His wrist flexes in Lan Wangji’s tight grasp. “I bruise like a peach, it’s really embarrassing."

    Lan Wangji releases the other boy’s wrist like he’s been burned.

    That’s the first mistake he makes.

    ---

    The first time Lan Wangji meets Wei Wuxian, they're 14, and Wei Wuxian is in the midst of stealing a Cloud Recesses shuttle. Years later, Wei Wuxian disappears in the middle of the Sunguard Campaign, taking the Wen refugees with him.

    Lan Wangji, seeking answers, follows Wei Wuxian's trail of one-way transmissions across the Middle Kingdom System, and finds both the answers he seeks, and answers to questions he'd never thought to ask before.

    Summary

    "But if Lan Wangji thinks that Wei Wuxian is beneath him, or if Lan Wangji's principles and integrity are challenged beyond what he can bear... if Wei Wuxian is left alone... he doesn't know what he'll do. Sometimes, he thinks he can only bear the world's wrath because he has Lan Wangji by his side. Then he remembers that he basically dragged Lan Wangji kicking and screaming (or rather, glaring and huffing) into this strange friendship and his own beliefs crumple."

    OR

    six times the media has talked about Wei Wuxian and Lan Wangji's rivalry and one time they talk to the media about it.

    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.)
