    Summary

    When Wen Yuan turned eight it was a lantern painted with a black and a white rabbit on one side, and a return to the hill at dusk to light it and set it aloft.

    Wish carefully, Uncle Wei had told him, unusually solemn. A-Yuan had wished that Uncle Lan would stay and live with them at the Burial Mounds, and Uncle Wei looked so sad afterward that he almost wished he could take it back. No one had spoken another word all the way back to the settlement.

    --

    The one where the Burial Mounds timeline gets expanded and Sizhui grows up a Wen. Featuring gratuitous angst and pining, Siblings, Juniors, and silent power struggles at the margins.

    Summary

    "By the Heavens, did you hear? The Yiling Patriarch has been invited to the Discussion Conference in Qinghe!"

    Gossip was, by far, the fastest way for information to spread.

    "What! Whose idea was that!?"

    It was not the most accurate or most reliable method, but people were people, and the tedium of daily life would always bore them.

    "I heard it was the Nie Sect leader's suggestion."

    ----------

    After thirteen years in the Burial Mounds, the Yiling Patriarch finally makes a public reappearance. Civilians are scared. Cultivators are outraged. Sect Leaders are concerned. Wei Wuxian has been too quiet, they say, and nobody knows what dark horrors the Burial Mounds may now contain.

    Wei Wuxian wouldn't quite call them dark horrors, but the description wasn't too far off.

    (tl;dr Wei Wuxian lives, raises a whole gaggle of demonic cultivator children, and the cultivation world panics.)

    Summary

    “You know,” Ouyang Zizhen says thoughtfully over dinner one day, “I’ve never seen Wei-qianbei get jealous before.”

    Lan Jingyi pauses for the briefest second, remembers the sect rule of keeping silence during meals, and decidedly forgoes it. “What?”

    “Well,” Ouyang Zizhen continues, “Hanguang-jun always has a lot of admirers everywhere we go, but Wei-qianbei never seems to mind it.”

    “Why are we talking about this?” Jin Ling asks flatly.

    -

    Four times Wei Wuxian doesn't get jealous, and the one time he does.

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian opens the letter and skims through, feeling his frown deepen with every line. “Oh. A request from Yiling. This man Tong Shen writes, 'I can’t explain what’s happening — you wouldn’t believe me if I tried. The hills are moving and they are hungry. Please send aid, Hanguang-jun, this humble one begs you.' Well, my curiosity is certainly piqued."

    A few months after the events of Guanyin Temple, Wei Wuxian and Lan Wangji take on a night hunt of an unusual sort: The Burial Mounds are spreading, quickly and with no apparent explanation. 

    In Wei Wuxian, it brings old, long-buried things bubbling to the surface.

    Summary

    “Stranger, dear stranger,” says Wei Ying, teasing, “save this humble one some face, hm?”

    “That would require having face to save.”

    “Is that an insult? Are you insulting me? This is the best day of my life.”

    “It is an observation.” The stranger gestures at their masks, in a bitchy way that Wei Ying is growing to understand is just his Natural Way Of Being, like he’s pointing out the fact that they’re both wearing masks and thus have no face to save, you fucking idiot.

    After three years away at boarding school, Wei Ying returns home to a masked ball.

    Summary

    Yiling Laozu was dead, and the cultivation world rejoiced. Now it was time to rest and finally heal the wounds left by the Sunshot Campaign.

    In their absence, the countryside grew more dangerous with each passing day. Rogue cultivators stepped in soon enough. Rumour had it that amongst them, there was one who went where no one else dared to go, all but for a place to sleep and a meal for his children. Rumour had it a crow rode on his shoulder. Rumour had it he disappeared into the shadows whenever someone so much as mentioned the four great Sects.

    Rumour had it he was a ghost.

    ***
    A story of a single father, his two kids, a daydreaming disciple, and a pet crow as seen through the eyes of others.

    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.)

    Summary

    “If you’re going to get married,” Jiang Cheng ground out, “then you’re going to damn well get married at Lotus Pier.”

    Wei Wuxian blinked once. Again. Then: “what?”

    Or: the one with sibling reconciliation, brother-in-laws from hell, and Jiang Cheng trying to sort through his feelings while acknowledging them as little as possible.

    Summary

    “I’m so sorry,” Wei Ying says, all in a rush. “That was meant for Nie-xiong, I swear.”

    A tiny line appears between Lan Zhan’s eyebrows. “You meant to propose to Nie Huaisang?”

    “Propose to—no! No, I meant to propose to you, obviously, but not like that.”

    Like that, Lan Zhan mouths.

Now Lan Wangji is in a race against time to find a man who seems to have disappeared without a trace, while trying to keep his feelings a secret from everyone around him (and maybe, if he has time, convince his brother to break up with his creepy boyfriend and date Wangji's partner instead).

    Wei Ying is mixed up in something dangerous. Lan Wangji is going to find him.

    (In which Wei Ying says ACAB and Lan Wangji is increasingly inclined to agree)

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian is a good for nothing, possibly evil, possibly fake uncle. But he's Jin Ling's good for nothing, possibly evil, possibly fake uncle. So it stands to reason that when Jin Ling starts to suspect that Hanguang-jun is mistreating his husband, he immediately recruits Jiang Cheng for a rescue mission.

    Summary

    The young man leaned forward, elbow on a propped up knee. “You are all respectable cultivators,” he said in a lilting tone even as the veritable army below pointed their swords at him. “Was this really the best way you could think of to get my attention?”

    With the threat of the Wen sect looming, the other major sects decide to summon the aid of a man they’d killed centuries ago: the Yiling Patriarch, Wei Wuxian.

    Summary

    “Just these?” He had thought, perhaps, given Jin Guangyao’s notorious organizational skills, there might be a few more, but it does not overly trouble him.

    “Oh no, Chief Cultivator,” Jin Guangtian says. “This is just the index.”

    (The peerless Hanguang-Jun faces his greatest challenge yet: bureaucracy).

    Summary

    Excerpt from Pretty Radical Everyday Sect Secrets (PRESS), 2nd Spring Edition

    YELLING PATRIARCH AND HANG-WHO-ANG-JUN SECRETLY ELOPED?

    His Excellency, Chief Cultivator Lan Wangji, has been missing for several weeks now. His presumed fiancé (as the PRESS reported in its 1st edition), alleged “Wei Wuxian” or “Yiling Patriarch”, has been unavailable for a statement. Coincidence? We think not!

    Jingyi's got a great idea for the juniors' politics project. Thus, the first Sect newspaper is born. In it, they grapple with important ideals like the freedom of the PRESS, which voices deserve to be heard, and who is your cultivator soulmate.
