    Summary

    “Wei Wuxian,” the man grits out, and he pauses with one hand reaching for the door handle. The disciple who had come in to speak to Lan Qiren brushes past him and exits the pavilion without a backwards glance. Wei Wuxian turns back to Master Lan, one eyebrow tilting up in question. “An urgent matter has come up,” Lan Qiren says, every word sounding like it’s being forcibly dragged from him. “His Excellency requests my presence. Their current instructor is ill, I was meant to take over classes for today,” he continues, gesturing towards the tiny juniors. He swallows heavily, and the next sentence sounds bitter. Choked. “I cannot leave them unattended.”

    Wei Wuxian just blinks at him.

    Or

    Wei Wuxian is asked (under duress) to babysit a class of tiny Lan cultivators for just a few minutes. A few minutes turns into an hour, turns into two hours, turns into an impromptu literal field trip and now there's an entire class that is weeks ahead of their curriculum, their most junior disciples have apparently imprinted on Wei Wuxian like baby birds, and Lan Qiren has no one to blame but himself.

    Summary

    A new plan hatches in Wei Wuxian’s head. If this nocturnal, bottom-feeding, slimy, invasive mudcat posing as a beautiful actor thinks he can sway Wei Wuxian with animal pictures and a sob story and an unbelievably stilted way of texting with still no dick pictures in the first five minutes of conversation, he has another thing coming. Wei Wuxian’s got it, alright, he has this in the fucking bag.

    Wei Wuxian plots to expose a catfish using strategic memes and turtle pictures while wiggling his way out of family dinner. Lan Wangji just wants companions.

    Summary

    “Let go,” Lan Wangji says.

    “Huh?” Wei Wuxian tightens his hold on Lan Wangji. “Why?”

    “If you don’t let go,” Lan Wangji tells him, reaching up to cover one of Wei Wuxian’s hands with his own, squeezing lightly, “then I can’t get up.”

    “And what will you do once you get up?” Wei Wuxian asks. “Will er-gege punish me for being shameless?”

    (Or, oh my god, they were roommates.)

    Summary

    “A-Yuan,” Wei Ying says, a laugh perched behind his voice, “can’t you stay where I put you for five minutes? I’ll plant you again, see if I don’t, and Wen Qing won’t stop me this time. You can’t run off after every pretty man who--”

    Lan Wangji is having some kind of out of body fit, he thinks faintly.

    Wei Ying has been missing for years, has never answered a letter, and he’s...here at Lan Xichen’s weekend market? With a child?

    His hair is in the messiest braid, flyaway bits every which way. Lan Wangji’s traitorous fingers want to tame it. He makes some sort of noise, he thinks, but it’s not precisely a word. It’s enough, anyway, to draw Wei Ying’s attention. Lan Wangji watches as Wei Ying’s smile breaks open like a flower.

    or: the market scene but everyone has cellphones and takes the metro now

    Summary

    After a lifetime spent honing her mind and body into one of the world's deadliest killing machines, Helena has never had much time for romance. Being around Dinah makes this a little more complicated.

     

    “Notes?” Renee echoes, looking amused. “You don’t need notes to ask someone out. Is this your first time having feelings for a woman?”

    Helena just looks at her and sees the comprehension dawn.

    “The first time having feelings for anyone?” Renee says, eyes wide. “What about crushes? What did you do when you were a teenager?”

    “Mostly martial arts,” Helena says, feeling miserable again.
