    Summary

    A modern OC arrives in Yiling before the start of the Sunshot Campaign. She has no friends, no money, and no cultivation. She knows what's coming, but what could she possibly do about it?
    ***
    “Well…” I looked down at my fingernails and tried not to squirm. “If there were a way to separate Wei Wuxian from Madam Yu without ruining his relationship with his siblings, I’d encourage it. Like, as an example, marriage.”

    Xichen blinked. “To you?”

    “No. Absolutely not. What even—?” The thought was so abhorrent I couldn’t hold it in my head. My brain spat it right back out. “To your brother.”

    Xichen blinked. Again. “To Wangji?”

    “Obviously?”

    “This is a concern of yours?”

    “I realize it’s not my business at all,” I admitted. “But you asked.”

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Omg this

    Ch 4

    Ugh. I doubted I had anything to fear from Lan Xichen but who knew. I might as well admit that I’ve never much liked Lan Xichen. Which probably seems weird, because his whole deal is that he’s so likable. He’s the nice guy, the people person, trusting and supportive.

    But he struck me as, fundamentally, a weathervane. He goes wherever the wind blows. He never has an unpopular opinion, he never puts his own standing at risk. When Wei Wuxian is a rising star of the cultivation world, Lan Xichen likes him. When Wei Wuxian is a pariah, Lan Xichen joins in his persecution. He stands by while Wangji is whipped, and, worst of all, he turns on Jin Guangyao as soon as his crimes are exposed.

    If Jin Guangyao is a foil for Wei Wuxian, both of them prodigies from dubious backgrounds who rise to the top of a world where power is generally acquired and then passed on through blood, then Lan Xichen is a foil for Lan Wangji. Lan Wangji fully understands Wei Wuxian’s crimes, yet he remains stubbornly, impossibly loyal. By contrast, when Lan Xichen discovers Jin Guangyao’s crimes, he kills the guy.

    Obviously it’s more complicated than that. Jin Guangyao and Wei Wuxian aren’t the same. They’re inverses of one another. Wei Wuxian flaunts his villainy and hides his virtue. Jin Guangyao flaunts his virtue and hides his villainy.

    But Xichen says that he’s been warned about Jin Guangyao’s unsavory behavior. That Nie Mingjue, among who knows how many others, tried to open his eyes to Jin Guangyao’s true nature. And Lan Xichen says, with his own mouth, that he refused to believe them.

    What do you call a guy who has the opportunity to understand you fully but, instead, prefers only to see the good parts? Whose friendship is conditional upon your ability to hide the ugly parts? Because I’d call that guy toxic.

    So yeah, Lan Xichen has never been my favorite.
