    Summary

    Lan Xichen sat still in shock. He had thought works and responsibilities kept Lan Wangji away from being with him in his darkest time. Never in his wildest imagination that Lan Wangji had decided to be away *with* Wei Wuxian; and away *from* him, his own grieving brother. Lan Xichen was grieving in his seclusion and Lan Wangji had chosen to elope with Wei Wuxian rather than supporting him.

    -Oh-

    Was that how much he worth in his younger brother's eyes?

    Lan Xichen had spent his whole life raising Lan Wangji and his brother couldn't spare even the briefest time for him.

    Summary

    Zhou Dai Yu would never abdicate her position as Sect Leader for marriage.

    She would rather risk losing her longed cultivation partner forever in this lifetime than to fall blindly into an obvious attempt to seize the power long held by her family. To her surprise, even a Sect Leader answers to someone. That someone happened to be a council of old crickets who would hate for another Zhou woman to lead in the wake of heated political tensions.

    Dai Yu could very well plant herself like a tree, unyielding, see how long until they strike her down. But being forced to marry the love of her life didn't seem so bad at all. What a twist!

    Lan Xichen tries to help Wei Wuxian, but saves himself along the way.

    Summary

    "I was always focused on the wrong part of our father’s story.”

    The wind was starting to pick up then, making the wooden porch creak around them, sending dark red petals of plum blossoms dancing against the dusk-grey sky.

    “You are nothing like him,” Lan Zhan said, just loud enough to be heard against the wind.

    “No, Wangji, it’s you who is not like him.” Lan Xichen was silent for a moment, looking for words, looking ahead into the darkness as if he could not face his brother. “His mistake wasn’t in who he loved but in what he neglected."

    Lan Wangji lives up to his promises, Lan Xichen makes his amends, Lan Sizhui decides on where he belongs and Wei Wuxian is writing love letters.

    Summary

    Jiang Cheng huffed, annoyed. “Well, I felt tranquil. Relaxed even.”

    “And do you usually feel that way?” The cultivator asked, though he looked like he already knew the answer. 

    Jiang Cheng snorted, unable to help himself. “Of course not, that’s the opposite of how I usually feel-”

    The opposite.

    Jiang Cheng felt his heart seize in his chest. Lan Xichen was hit with the curse as well, but...but that would mean-

    He felt like he was going to be sick.

    And at that moment, Lan Xichen caught Jiang Cheng’s eye from across the room and cheerfully waved at him, beaming.
    ~
    (Lan Xichen has always radiated pure joy and happiness, no matter what. But then, he's accidentally hit with a curse that causes him to emulate the opposite of the emotions he truly feels. So then...why doesn't the curse make him miserable? Why does it make him look the happiest he's ever been?)

    Summary

    “I’m sorry I woke you up,” Mingjue said, and Lan Xichen laughed.

    “Don’t be,” he said, “hearing your voice first thing in the morning is the best way to start the day.”

    There was silence on the line, then Mingjue huffed. “If you keep saying things like that,” he warned, but Lan Xichen could hear the amusement in his voice, and could visualize the expression that would be on his face, “I’ll get on Baxia and fly to Gusu instead of Qishan by accident.”

    Summary

    Seclusion isn't working and Lan Xichen struggles to find his way back from Jin Guangyao's betrayal. Help comes with a swirl of purple and the scent of lotuses.

    Or: Two broken men learn to carry each other and love.

    Edited: 1/26/2020
    Changes are largely adding accents to names, a couple minor grammar fixes. I've also made seclusion last a little longer. Also, since I figured out how courtesy names work, Jiāng Chéng is now mostly referred to as Jiāng Wǎnyín, as that's a more appropriate way for Lán Xīchén to address him, even mentally.

    Summary

    Lán Xīchén accepts Jiāng Chéng's offer to come to Lotus Pier. It's not going as well as he'd hoped. Who knew a thoughtfully decorated room could be so painful.

    Day 4: Prompt, decoration

    A direct sequel to an earlier prompt (Shiver) Title: You Left and I, I lived: https://archiveofourown.org/works/21647872

    Edited: 01/26/2020
    Mostly learned how courtesy names work and adjusted accordingly. Also added accents to names and places.

    Summary

    Lan Xichen smoothes his hand over his robe. 

    His fingertips find the by now familiar, almost invisible pattern in them, tracing the outline of something that is definitely not a cloud.

    Summary

    Lan Wangji felt as if he was stood once again at the crossroads: gazing up at Wei Wuxian astride a horse. Pleading, begging him in his useless, voiceless, artless way, not to go.

    OR: Lan Zhan gets caught in the rain, caught up in old memories, then catches a cold.
