    Summary

    "I remember the yaoguai," Wei Wuxian said slowly. Kind of. Mostly flashes of ugly teeth and claws, the black lacquer of Chenqing pressed against his lips, music and resentful energy spilling out his dizi. He'd gone out after it on his own, knowing it was on the border with Yunmeng, half-hoping he'd run into Jiang Cheng-- night hunts were the only time they ever saw each other these days. (It was fine, really. He'd told Jiang Cheng himself they should leave everything in the past. It was just that sometimes he couldn't stop himself from wanting to see Jiang Cheng anyways, and make sure he was doing well.)

    Summary

    “The Wens had been forced to cancel their own Lunar New Year trip after Wen-popo broke her hip amidst two days of ice storms. And if she knew that Wei Ying and Lan Zhan had rearranged their plans and inconvenienced both their families on her account, she’d kill them with her bare hands.”

    (Or: Wei Ying hosts a dinner, and returns a favor.)

    Summary

    "You worry me," Lan WangJi tells him seriously. He puts his hands on Wei WuXian's knees for lack of a better place to put them. Wei WuXian places his own hands on top of Lan WangJi's, presumably to stop him from trying again to check his bandages.

     

    "You don't need to worry," Wei WuXian says. "I swear I'm fine. I'll tell you if something feels off. You know me, I'm a huge crybaby whiner."

     

    Lan WangJi frowns at him again. It's true that Wei WuXian can be a bit of a crybaby, but only about injuries that don't actually matter. When it's something important, like a ghost curse or a fundamentally unstable necromantic practice, Wei WuXian keeps it to himself. "Ridiculous," Lan WangJi tells him. Wei WuXian grins down at him.

    Summary

    “Ah, Er-gege,” Wei Ying forces yet another laugh, it is breathless and helpless, and painful as always. “So inappropriate. What would Jiang Cheng say?”

    Lan Zhan doesn’t recoil, or laugh. He really has changed.

    “You didn’t tell us you’re injured,” Lan Zhan gently moves his arm around, dotes on Wei Ying like he cares for him the way Wei Ying wishes him to. He’s convincing, for sure, and Wei Ying tries not to pretend his delusions are coming true.

    -

    (Years ago, Wei Ying went to Lanling on his own, and died during the ambush. He returns to a changed world, where the loves of his life have seemingly been doing better without him.)

    ((Established Zhancheng, but we all know where this is going))

    Summary

    Inspired by this tweet by Westie.

    Wei Ying left his small regional town to keep his family safe, believing they were better off thinking he was dead. Now, after over a decade of dead ends and near misses, Jiang Cheng has found him again. The only problem: Wei Ying doesn’t believe he is worthy of the love that is waiting for him back home.
