    Summary

    Rumors spread throughout the small town of Yiling. Villagers talked in hushed, reverent tones about a woman that tamed the Burial Mounds, a mysterious but powerful cultivator that graciously took Yiling under her righteous protection. The rumors didn’t get very far, as they were too ludicrous for anyone to believe. Not even the Wen could tame the Burial Mounds, so how could any of them accept rumors about a single woman conquering the cursed place?

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian forges the Yin Tiger Seal from the Sword of Xuanwu during the Sunshot Campaign. There are pieces missing. They are not pieces of the Seal.


    This is fully-written and will be posted over the next few days as I edit, but heads up, it is really, really nonlinear and impressionistic.


    Stand-alone independent read, frankencanon compliant, also backstory for my AU.

    Summary

    Summary

    “Zizhen, does this hill have a name?”

    “No, Wei-tongling; or, at least, not one that I am aware of.”

    “That doesn’t seem right. The sight of a heroic last stand deserves to have a name – something that will sound good in the history books.” Wei Wuxian looked around, his eyes moving from man to horse to tent, as if cataloguing everything before it was lost. “I’m going to call it Luanzang Hill. What do you think?”

    Ouyang Zizhen shivered. “Don’t you think that’s a little…morbid?”

    “Morbid? Not at all.” Wei Wuxian tightened his grip on the hilt of his sword, knuckles pushing whitely through the skin. “I think it’s very fitting. Unless this new strategist the Emperor has sent for can work some kind of miracle, we are all going to die here.”

    ***

    Trapped and outnumbered, things look grim for the men of the Changlin army unit and their commander, Wei Wuxian. There's a new strategist on the way, but even he can't work miracles...can he?

    Summary

    Such basic needs. Having walls to house him. Sheets to swathe himself in. A bed to lay in. A desk to write comfortably at. Cushions, should he want them. Privacy screens to separate his bed from the rest of the room. An incense stand and a jade incense burner. Simple things that, in another life, in another place, were considered such luxury.

    And yet, Wei Wuxian had none of it. Daughter of a servant she might have been, but Wei Wuxian had grown up a ward of a great, wealthy sect. A real lady. One who cultivated, but a lady nonetheless. She was used to creature comforts. To eating what she wished, to having what she wanted. All she had ever had to do was ask, and her world had provided. And now —

    In her damp, derelict cave, Wei Wuxian had a flat boulder for a bed and ragged sheets. She had stone upon stone upon stone. Stone walls, a stone desk, a stone pool filled with blood that made the room reek of wet rusted iron. She had no soft sheets. No padded mattress. No privacy screens. Not even a proper bathtub.

    Or: Lan Wangji goes back to the Burial Mounds after his first visit. Wei Wuxian is a woman and this changes everything.

    Summary

    It was luck that Lan Wangji heard of the plan to confront Wei Wuxian in the Qiongqi Path. It was instinct that had made him accompany Jin Zixuan to suppress any violence from the encounter. It was years of musical cultivation that had turned his ear to a second flute. A second flute intent on changing the course of all their lives.

    With the flute's owner in the custody of both Lan Wangji and Jin Zixuan, Wei Wuxian is called to give an account of the incident in Jinlintai, in front of the friends and family he had been hoping to reconcile with. As truths are revealed, Wei Wuxian is confined to the Burial Mounds under the protection of the Lan Clan of Gusu with Lan Wangji acting as personal guard to him and the Wens.

    Leading a simpler life, friendships are tested and strengthened, truths are spoken and feelings revealed, teaching all touched by the events that family is strongest when you build it together.

    Summary

    Lan Sizhui landed on the edge of the burial mounds with a loud crack that scared the ferocious corpses at the edge of the mountain. His feet caught on an exposed root, and he landed on his injured shoulder with a scream; except his voice got swallowed by hundreds of different voices roaring at the same time as they marched up the mountains of Yiling, and up to the lair of the cultivation’s world greatest enemy.

    “Kill the Yiling Patriarch! Death to Wei Wuxian! Dead to the Wen Dogs!”

    Or, the one where Sizhui travels back in time to the first siege of the Burial Mounds.

    This work is part of a series where NMJ and WWX were soulmates and lovers during and after the war.
    I recommend reading, at least, part one or part five.

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian is a good and lovable man, and it's about time everyone realises it.


    The Stygian Tiger Seal has had enough of people looking down on their kind master and has decided to do something about it just as their master destroys them in an attempt to save the people he has been protecting.
    Together with the help of Burial Mounds, the Seal protected their master and made him what he deserved, a god. But it seems that the cultivators are not very happy with that. Well, their problem! Should've respected Daiyu's master before! Now suffer!

    Summary

    Wei Ying is not in bed.

    Normally, Wei Ying is curled up next to Lan Wangji when he wakes at five. Wei Ying will be strewn about, soft limbs and dark hair fanned and sprawled, leg over Wangji's hip, arms wrapped tightly around his chest, and face pressed into his neck. Even in sleep, Wei Ying is a bundle of energy; he is always moving. Now, Wangji wakes to a cold bed, and no Wei Ying.

     

    A series of sleepwalking episodes leaves Wei Wuxian refusing to sleep, and Lan Wangji at his wit's end on how to deal with them. It appears, however, that it is anything but simple sleepwalking. And there is no telling just what may happen if the episodes are left unchecked.

    Summary

    Sometimes, doing the impossible is less of his mother's motto and more of a birthright that Jin Rulan was born to. But if saving his favorite uncle from a town that only one person has ever convinced it to let go requires him sneaking out the locations from one of his other uncle's desks, figuring out how to steal someone from the greatest warded area of the Lan Clan in the U.S., and taking him across most of the country to rescue his uncle, that wasn't that hard.

    Now, convincing himself that this guy was the feared Patriarch of Necromancy, able to hold off entire armies, had kidnapped multiple people into one of the worst places on earth, and was in general the horror story about why you shouldn't step off the beaten path? That was impossible.

    "The worst thing about the curse, out of the long list of worst things, was how silent it made the world."

    Thirteen years later, things come to a head.

    OR:

    The Burial Mounds are much more sentient than anyone could ever have imagined, and with his fall, Wei Wuxian discovers ancient entities and twisted landscapes.

    Summary

    Jiang Yanli learnt that life was unfair when she was a girl. She held that anguish in her two, delicate hands, let it shape the worn lines of her palm, and then she took her brothers by the hand; so that their small fingers might never know its sting.

    She made her peace, not because she was not angry, but because there was no place for her anger here. She dug her small hands into the ground, dirt gathering under her fingernails, and in that hole she buried it. A small part of Lotus Pier had always been a graveyard of what they left unsaid. Now, the corpses that filled it were real, and she was so very tired.

    Summary

    As she sees him pained and hurting, withdrawing into himself, Wen Qing decides that she can do more. She decides then, that she can give him back some of what he has given up to keep them safe. It is what propels her to ask "Wei Wuxian, teach me demonic cultivation.”

    ---

    Or, what if Wei Wuxian was given the opportunity to leave the Burial Mounds - what exactly could it change?

    Summary

    When Lan Wangji stubbornly climbed that mountain, it was with the sole purpose of bringing his love home safely. But Wei Wuxian... his Wei Ying, was nowhere to be found. What Lan Wangji found was a frail little boy and an unbridled rage at the world that allowed this all to come to pass.

    OR
    What if Wangji stayed in the Burial Mounds after Nightless City?
    What if Yiling still had a Patriarch?

    Summary

    The Burial Mounds remember, even if time passes and people forget, but they remember the kind man dressed in red and black, who was good to them, who treated the land and the dead with gentleness and cultivated life and breathed love into their long dead bodies. They remember the gentle touches, standing out among the people who tried to force their way in.

    The man was thrown in, and he listened.

    Summary

    Love the flavour of Wei Wuxian closing off the burial mounds to build an entire sect, complete with pavilions and the like and I love the positive view of actually harnessing the resentful energy.
