    Summary

    Wei Wuxian puts a hand to his head, brain lost in fog. “Lan Zhan,” he pants. “Why are we here? Are we on a hunt?”

    As Lan Zhan tries to remember, his brow furrows. He shakes his head slightly. “I don’t know.”

    “This is bad,” Wei Wuxian says. When Lan Zhan cups his cheek again, sparks burst behind Wei Wuxian’s eyes. “Or maybe it’s not,” he says unthinkingly. Sighs, almost. Lan Zhan looks at his own arm like it's betrayed him. Wei Wuxian closes his eyes and presses his face into Lan Zhan’s palm. “Lan Zhan, Lan Zhan,” he murmurs. “What’s happening to us?”

    According to onlysayitonce:

    This was wonderful, I love how quickly Wei Ying brushes away Lan Zhan's angst and worries. No tragic sex pollen aftermath for HIS soul mate. The reference to Wei Ying's "heart of stone" made me laugh, thank you for that

    Summary

    Lan Wangji kisses him. When he pulls away, he speaks into the silence between them, because when he is with Wei Ying, he so rarely considers. “Why don’t you touch me anymore?”

    According to typefortydeductions:

    This is so lovely. I loved seeing LWJ's thought process here, and the ways in which loving Wei Ying is difficult sometimes, and the ways in which that annoyance hasn't gone away, but is different now, and can be worked through. Their conversation at the end was so moving <3

    Summary

    Lan Zhan stands there in his immaculate, cloud-patterned Lan robes, watching him calmly, one fist tucked up against his back. “I am betrothed.”

    Wei Wuxian blinks. “Are you…” He tries to laugh. Again, it sounds inhuman. “Is this about last night? Are you mad at me? I only remember some of it, Lan Zhan. I’m sorry if I made you uncomfortable. I’m sure whatever I did I was just—” He gestures uselessly. He remembers being warm in Lan Zhan’s lap. He remembers fitting snugly in Lan Zhan’s lap. Wrapping his arms around Lan Zhan’s neck. Nosing at his jaw. “…playing around.”

    “This has nothing to do with you, Wei Wuxian.”

    According to cassynite:

    This was SO GOOD. I loved reading through this so much, from WWX devastation at LWJ suddenly getting married to his anger at Zhang Xiolian's curse, and how where they are now intertwined with the rough bumps WWX and LWJ had in the past at Cloud Recesses...I could SEE how LWJ's curse was pulling him back from caring about WWX the way he wanted to and that was so. Good. Just excellent character building all around.

    I think that I loved Zhang Xiaolian's character the most! Even though I also kind of hated her. But there aren't that many fics that touch on people who are affected by trauma and become worse versions of themselves for it, especially regarding children. There's something satisfying about seeing someone work to be better to move past what hurt them, or have their vulnerability work in ways that still make them appealing to others, but even in canon we see that it isn't always how that works out.

    The fact that she was a self-centered brat focused on her own safety made sense! She's twelve, and she just lost her family and it was her fault! I also really liked that she wasn't 'fixed' by the end, that she hadn't gotten any nicer or had her trauma completely eased, or even found comfort in WWX or LWJ by the end. Her story is still out there, and she's able to move forward and sometimes that's the best people can get, at least immediately. It was sad to see Jiang Cheng and WWX's interactions stay much closer to their canon burned-bridge relationship but showcasing that worked so well to parallel that as well--trauma doesn't always fix itself completely. Sometimes the damage is permanent--ZXL won't ever be the person she was before her parents died, and she might never move past some of the awful behaviors that she gained because of what happened. WWX and JC will never be the brothers that they once were.

    I don't know, I just have a lot of thoughts about this. I'll probably be thinking about it for a while! This is definitely going to be one I revisit in the future, I think. Thank you so much for sharing this story <3

    Summary

    Su She is 10% stupider. Lan Wangji has a terrible day. Revelations are had. A Qiongqi prison break fix-it feat. core-destroying poison.

    Or, what if that cup of wine Wei Wuxian drank for Lan Wangji after the Phoenix Mountain hunt wasn't just wine?

    According to Worthless_Nepenthes:

    Love confessions are very tiring and stressful okay! They deserve to sleep!

    Out of curiosity, are you doing it on purpose or does it just happen that way??

    Man, JGY is MAD at SMS for going off plan. SMS is gonna have A Bad Time. How dare he hurt LXC.

    So, the guards overhearing and then spreading the tale of heroic WWX, is that shaped by JGY? Is he thankful for WWX bringing WQ and this is his repayment?

    Is Jiang Cheng going to break WWX’s legs for going back to Gusu with LWJ?

    I’m glad LXC is going to be okay. I’m also glad that LWJ called NMJ out on his hypocriticalness, even just mentally. All Wens deserve to die horribly, until I need one.

    Summary

    Look, sometimes you meet a guy in college and become best friends. Sometimes the two of you spend a day babysitting objectively the best baby on earth, and that baby needs parents. Sometimes you get married to the guy (platonically!) and spend thirteen years raising the best baby on earth into the best teenager on earth. Also you share a bed. Also you're in love with him.

    Wei Ying is pretty sure all that is normal. Lan Zhan agrees. Sizhui is... dubious.

    According to HeylookGiraffes:

    Fantastic and hysterical there were so many good moments omg also rip literally everyone who had to witness that fiasco of miscommunication
