Wei Wuxian got back up and walked towards the clay model. He gently ran his fingers across the cheeks, then traced over the lips with his thumb. He could feel his heart start to race as he looked at the statue’s eyes, but, upon realizing that this was still technically a bust of Lan Xichen’s head, he quickly pulled away.
However, the more Wei Wuxian looked at the bust, the less he saw Lan Xichen reflected in it. This bust belonged to someone else—a twin maybe. A twin that shared no similarities in personality, but a twin nonetheless.
Or maybe that was just his excuse for finding the bust so attractive.
“Who are you?” Wei Wuxian asked as he pulled up a stool and started talking to the bust. “What’s your story?”
Alternatively: After His Majesty Lan Xichen commissions the great sculptor Wei Wuxian to make a bust for him, Wei Wuxian finds himself strangely attracted to the failed model. Not wanting to let his work go to waste, Wei Wuxian uses the bust the create a statue—a statue of his perfect man.

“But it's a trap, Wei Wuxian. We are only alive on this mountain. If you leave, you may as well be a walking corpse already.”
Wei Wuxian makes a little huff of air through his nose, almost a laugh. “I haven't felt alive for a long time, Wen Qing.”
Wen Qing is convinced that Jin Ling's 100 Days party is a plan to get Wei Wuxian killed, and refuses to let him go. In the seasons that follow, the Burial Mounds stops being some kind of purgatory, and starts to become a home.
