  1. Summary

    "You might be the mighty sword of justice but judging by your performance since we've met you need someone to protect you from the dangers of ordinary life in the city when you're off duty."

    Shen Wei doesn't see himself as someone who needs protection. Zhao Yunlan has a different opinion and he is very stubborn. (Zhao Yunlan is definitely smarter and more realistic than Shen Wei in that regard.)

    Summary

    “Watch the road,” Zhou Zishu says, his face warmer than he wants it to be, thankful for the car’s dim interior. “You won’t get anything from me if you wrap us around a pole.”

    “True,” Wen Kexing agrees sagely, his eyes turning dutifully forward. “There is only one pole here I’d like to wrap something around.”

    Zhou Zishu is startled into an unfortunate bark of laughter. Wen Kexing grins like he won something. Smug bastard.

    “Shut up,” Zhou Zishu says. “Just don’t talk again until we get there.”

    Days before Zhou Zishu puts a plan in motion that will implode his life and probably kill him, he spends a lost weekend with a man he meets at a bar.

    A year later, their paths cross again.

    Summary

    The thing is, Lan Wangji doesn’t seem to be in much pain. He didn’t take any injuries in the fight. It mostly just seems like his body is exhausted to the point of collapse, dizzy, weak, maybe a little dehydrated. It’s not that different, in fact, from the few times Wei Wuxian has seen him drunk. He is a little more lucid, but he is soft and pliant in the same way, placidly letting Wei Wuxian take control— not because he is insensate, Wei Wuxian understands with a pleased little ache in his chest, but because he completely trusts Wei Wuxian to care for him when he is in this state.

    or: Lan Wangji is sleepy, and cuddles from his husband are the only medicine.

    Summary

    When Lan Wangji is seconded to the Lanling branch of the Cultivation Bureau, he expects a boring rotation. Perhaps a lonely one, but he is accustomed to loneliness, and duty is duty.

    He doesn’t expect to be partnered with an over-exuberant ex-criminal with far too much enthusiasm for hacking, making mischief, and annoying Lan Wangji. Wei Wuxian is everything Lan Wangji despises in a cultivator – he’s loud, unruly, and has no respect for anything. He’s even proud of what he did to get arrested in the first place.

    Unfortunately, he’s also very good at what he does. If Lan Wangji is going to figure out why someone with a talent for both hacking and talisman curses is targeting certain prominent members of Lanling’s high society, he’s going to need all the help he can get, for it’s far from a normal case. Solving it might put both him and Wei Wuxian in the crosshairs of some very powerful people on both sides of the law.

    Then again, given Wei Wuxian’s predilection for explosive experiments, working with him might be most dangerous part about the whole mess.

    Summary

    “Will you,” Wei Wuxian pauses, screwing his eyes shut and then asks, “will you play for me?”

    Lan Zhan sits immediately, graceful as always, but rushed, like he thinks if he doesn’t start right away, Wei Wuxian will take it back and disappear again. He’s probably not wrong. So he sits on the uneven stone floor in front of the Blood Pool and summons Wangji into his lap.

    Wei Wuxian sits facing him, his movements much less graceful. His knees and hips, as always, protest the transition to lotus pose, but he’s able to rest his elbows some as he lays his wrists on his thighs.

    ~~

    Removing his golden core had more consequences than Wei Wuxian was able to anticipate. Chief among them is his new, ever-present pain. He'd only ever felt relief from it once since the surgery: when Lan Wangji had played for him after the battle at Nightless City. So when Lan Wangji comes to visit him in Yiling, Wei Wuxain finally lets him help like he'd promised.
