    Summary

    He can’t get Jin Guangyao’s words out of his head.

    If he’d only believed in Wei Wuxian, if he’d only been willing to stand up for him, could it all have been avoided?

    Wei Wuxian laughs, looking at him like he did when they were kids getting in trouble at Cloud Recesses, and how he’d looked at him in that temple when Jiang Cheng had first yelled at him about his golden core, and how he looks at him every time their children get into another fight at dinner. So many things have changed, but how his brother loves him hasn’t, and if he’d had to change the world so it was a place where his brother’s love was something he got to keep, well.

    Being a Jiang means attempting the impossible, after all.

    Summary

    "Let me get this straight. You really want me to stand in for you while you help Jin Ling settle in at Koi Tower?"

    "Who else do I have?" Jiang Cheng snaps, ears turning scarlet as Jin Ling tries to pretend he isn't listening. "Father trained you to serve as my deputy, didn't he? And don't say you don't remember, or I'll break your legs."

    "Well, yes," Wei Wuxian manages. "Uh. I'll just let Lan Zhan know I'll be at Lotus Pier until you're back at home, then."

    In which Wei Wuxian spends the year before his wedding as Yunmeng Jiang's acting sect leader, and the cultivation world's greatest love story finds its happy ending with the help of three juniors, a teenage romance, and one very involved (and exasperated) younger brother.

    But Suyin has no way of knowing that Lan Wangji’s heart is quivering in his chest, so certain of his knowledge that Wei Ying would never lend anything given to him by Jiang Wanyin or his late parents or even by his sister, simply because he could not believe their gifts were his by rights in the first place—but he wears Lan Wangji’s expensive talisman robes on night-hunts and lets Little Snowdrop shed cat hair all over them, and now he is lending a comb he cherishes dearly to one of his disciples, because he sees it as his own with no hint of guilt, or obligation. It is the same with the endearments Lan Wangji showers upon him, and the food he cooks for Wei Ying and Xiao-Yu to eat, and his presence in Wei Ying’s bed by night and his doting upon him by day—his zhiji accepts them all gladly, willingly, and never seems to think that Lan Wangji’s gestures of love might be a hardship to him.

    Unlikely to be finished.

    WWX grows up as a well-adjusted son of the Lan clan but loses none of his charms (probably because his mother reads very similar to how canon Cangse Sanren might be). Story stops at the start of canon and is brilliantly hilarious, the kind of fluff that is so endearing you forget that it has very little substance.

    Summary

    “We’re in this together, you know,” Wei Wuxian says. “You’re dead. I used to be dead. We're both tolerated and incredibly unwelcome here. We both annoy the same people, as far as I can tell. I’ve built relationships on less. Let’s work this out.”

    But again, there’s no response.

    (Or: there's a ghost in the Cloud Recesses.)

    Summary

    The Chief Cultivator's Herald. Wei Wuxian is not quite sure when they started calling him that, but as he traipses through beleaguered towns and villages, as he finally starts to build the world that he and Lan Zhan have always vowed to build, he finds that he doesn't mind it so much.

    He doesn't mind being anything at all, as long as he is Lan Zhan's.

    Wei Wuxian goes where the chaos is in Lan Wangji's stead, and finds a home in the process.

    He's fine with being called anything at all, because he's finally, finally Lan Zhan's.
