    Summary

    Lan WangJi took Wei WuXian's other hand. He held them up between their bodies, turning his hands to see the ink stains, the cuts and scrapes, the dirt and blood ground into the deepest creases around his nails, the paper-thin translucency of his skin. His hands, once graceful in a way that reminded Lan WangJi of the flight of birds, now more closely resembled talons, all tendon and bone. He kissed Wei WuXian's palms, then the insides of his wrists, lips lingering over his pulse.

    “You're so strange, Lan Zhan,” Wei WuXian murmured. He drew a hand free and ran his fingers lightly over Lan WangJi's forehead and into his hair. “You didn't get yourself a new forehead ribbon.”

    He shook his head. “No need.”

    He hadn't lost his, after all, merely left it with his heart, where it should be.

    ---

    A canon divergent fic in which Lan WangJi and Wei WuXian end their arguments by screwing rather than walking away.
