    Summary

    “It is not a coup,” Meng Yao says, which he has said at every weekly covert cheeseburger assignation since they began doing them. “A coup is, quote: a sudden, violent, and illegal seizure of power from a government. Unquote.”

    “The HOA counts as a governing body. Trying to take it over is a coup.”

    ***

    Two gremlins, eating cheeseburgers in the car in a parking lot at 1am, five feet apart because they're not friends.

    Summary

    Wei Ying lets out a long, ugly groan. “I am fine, Lan Zhan. Everybody is overreacting, it’s so embarrassing for all of you.”

    “You had undiagnosed pneumonia, which you walked around with for weeks until you passed out during dress,” Lan Wangji corrects him. “It got a big laugh, until everyone thought you were dead.”

    He keeps his voice even and does not tell Wei Ying that it had been Lan Wangji who caught him, who called the ambulance, and who rode with him to the hospital, where he was yelled at by nurses who wanted to know why he hadn’t noticed that Wei Ying couldn’t stop shivering or string proper sentences together.

    “Rumors of my demise have been vastly overstated,” Wei Ying says. “Anyway, I’m already feeling much better. Basically fine. Really almost completely back to normal, so stop babying me and tell me why the fuck you let your stupid brother hire the worst man in the world to host our show.”

    it's a full and amazing cast in this SNL AU! so many characters from canon are incorporated and it's flawless and hilarious. Totally in awe at how varnes managed to combine elements from MDZS, SNL, 30 Rock and untamed rpf!

    Some highlights: Yanli as bacon, Yu Ziyuan's maids as hair/makeup/costume designers, Jiang Cheng and Lan Zhan with matching tattoos, Momxian and Dadji, the story of jade rabbit of the moon

    Summary

    By the time MianMian gets back from her honeymoon, his name and face will be gloriously etched into Lan Wangji's memory. Impossible to remove.

    He's going to make that man think of him daily. He wants to drive him insane.

    Maybe Lan Wangji will have to invent an actual forget-Wei-Wuxian curse just to survive the aftermath.

    tropey and wonderful! their dynamic as friends is just so good! they gel together so well! and XZ's pov is just too funny. He's needy and jealous and irrational but it never comes off as annoying because the two of them take such good care of each other!
