    Summary

    "Mr. Lan? I’m sorry, but I’m afraid I can’t process your wedding certificate.”

    Lan Zhan didn’t show any of his annoyance on his face. “Why not?”

    The employee arched one eyebrow. “You know…” They trailed off when they realized that Lan Zhan really didn’t know. “Ah, this is awkward. Well according to these records, you are already married. The marriage license you have on file says that you’ve been married for thirteen years to a man named Wei Ying.”

    Modern Era. Cql canon. Lwj goes to get married to a woman from a up-and-coming sect that understands it’ll be in name only, only to be told they cant offer him the marriage license bc he’s already married to wei ying. Instead of telling the clerk wwx is dead, he goes to lotus pier with a copy of the marriage certificate to figure out what jiang cheng knows. Wwx had told jc that he and lan zhan got really drunk and got married but then the next morning lwj acted like nothing happened. He goes to yiling in search of the person who signed the certificate and while that person had retired, the clerk helping him had happened to attend their wedding and there just happened to be a photo from their wedding in the office somewhere. At the end, lwj stops wwx from going on his post-cql travels and they have a proper marriage ceremony. No background pairings. No smut. T rating is accurate. LWJ’s POV.

    Summary

    Lan Wangji and Wei Wuxian are finally wed after years of betrothal arranged by their clans. When Wei Wuxian moves to the Cloud Recesses to begin his new life as Lan Wangji's husband, however, he is dismayed to learn that their marriage is nothing more than a formality and the Lan Principles forbid non-procreative sex. In trying to help his husband adjust to their new life together, Lan Wangji finds his devotion to his own moral code slowly unraveling.

    ---

    “It is not permitted,” he repeated. As a test, he cautiously added, “Wei Ying.”
    “Hmm.” Wei Wuxian—Wei Ying—looked momentarily caught between irritation and satisfaction, but soon brightened, clearly giving in to the latter. “Alright.” He continued smiling even as he began to shrug out of his robes.
    “What are you doing?” Lan Wangji’s voice had taken on a much higher pitch than usual, and he had to stop himself from rushing forward to physically apprehend his husband.
    Wei Ying looked equally startled, frozen with just one arm out of the sleeve. “Lan Zhan,” he repeated, slowly, as if speaking to a child. “It’s our
    wedding night.”

    Canon Era. Sunshot era age, but no wen aggression or cloud recesses study arc. Ambiguous canon. Wangxian were arranged to be married as preteens and now that they’re adults they’ve finally married, but lwj refuses to have sex with wwx (despite wanting to) on account of lan precepts that say that ban sex except for purposes of procreation. That is not the only precept that wwx finds hard to live with but sex is the main focus. Lqr confines them to the jingshi to protect the juniors from wwx’s corrupting influence to give lwj time to educate his husband on the gusu lan way of life. Wwx convinces lan zhan to try kissing but he runs away when wei ying tries to advance things. They travel to lotus pier to visit and lan zhan watches wei ying come alive in the familiar hustle and bustle so he has to kiss him about it. When they get back to the cloud recesses, they pretty much immediately have sex and fall asleep together, but the next morning, lwj recoils in surprise when he realizes hes naked in bed with another man who is also naked. Wwx is understandably upset at this as he feels lwj is treating him like a dirty little secret and says maybe their marriage will have to be an arrangement like lxc/wq (who are both gay). Lan zhan had never heard about this arrangement his brother has with his wife but before he can ask, a disciple shows up to tell them lxc has invited them for lunch. Lxc notices something is wrong so he pulls lwj to talk at which point lwj asks about this arrangement and tells him wei ying said they may need one too. Lxc expresses disappointment but when he suggests the idea of wwx taking a lover, lwj objects vehemently, not bc it would violate the lan sect precepts concerning marriage, but bc he doesnt want to share. Immediately when they get back to the jingshi, lwj confesses his feelings and wants wwx regardless of the marriage precepts and they have absolutely filthy sex on the floor about it. The next afternoon, when they finally drag themselves out of bed, they go to check in on the juniors but after kissing in public, in full view of the juniors, they return to the jingshi. Background lxc/wq (but actually lxc&wq). Mentioned xuanli. Great characterization. Great smut. E rating is accurate. LWJ’s POV.

    Summary

    Strange magic-induced rings of decay have started appearing all over the old, weary city of Yiling. As the resident witch, Wei Ying is prepared to deal with it on his own with his unorthodox way of witchcraft, but recently a new witch has moved into town.

    Between solving the mystery and re-learning this grown-up, softer version of the Lan Zhan he remembers from what feels like a lifetime ago, Wei Ying's days have become a lot more interesting.

    (or, soft witches au featuring the wens, plants, food, and the inherent romanticism of having deep mutual respect for the fellow witch you're working together with to save a city.)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Modern with magic (but different magic). Local witch and handyman wwx goes to his latest call only to find lan zhan, who just recently moved to yiling, already there. They immediately team up to investigate a series of sudden patches of decay that pop up around the city that they eventually find out were caused by resentment infecting the leylines. No background pairings. The only angst comes from the things harming the leylines. Wwx’s familiar is a reanimated stray cat skeleton. No smut. G rating is accurate. WWX’s POV.

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian has been wandering alone for six months when he suddenly stops writing. This is deeply concerning to at least a few people. Jiang Cheng is not among them.

    No, really, he's not.

    (Or, the one where Wei Wuxian vanishes and Lan Wangji, reluctantly, asks for Jiang Cheng's help tracking him down.)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Post Canon Era. Cql canon. Wwx gets kidnapped by some demonic cultivators who want him to make their dead loved ones into new wen nings. Lwj is worried when his regular letters stop coming and goes to ask jc to help him look, despite still hating him. On their journey, they are standoffish and argue. When they finally find him, wwx has been tortured and starved for weeks and only manages to wake for long enough for lwj to chop off the man holding a knife to his throat. Jc goes to visit jin ling afterwards, who convinces him to visit wwx in the cloud recesses by framing it as not wanting to go alone. Jc argues with lwj on the threshold of the jingshi but wwx drags him to the door to intervene. Jc admits to wanting wwx to visit him in lotus pier. Background Wangxian. Great jc narration. No smut. T rating is accurate. JC’s POV.

     

    Sequel thats lwj’s pov of the same events. Starts with lwj being worried about the absence of letters. Ends with him annoyed with jc’s typical tsudere bullshit when he comes to visit wwx. No smut. Rated T. LWJ’s POV.

    Summary

    “If you’re going to get married,” Jiang Cheng ground out, “then you’re going to damn well get married at Lotus Pier.”

    Wei Wuxian blinked once. Again. Then: “what?”

    Or: the one with sibling reconciliation, brother-in-laws from hell, and Jiang Cheng trying to sort through his feelings while acknowledging them as little as possible.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Post Canon Era. Cql canon. Jc only finds out wangxian are getting married bc jin ling asks him for advice for what to buy lwj, being his new uncle but also the chief cultivator (and also lan wangji specifically). Jiang cheng is furious about this, immediately berates wwx about the optics of the chief cultivator marrying the yiling laozu in a secret private ceremony, gets wei ying reinstated as a yunmeng jiang disciple, and starts wedding preparations. Theres a lot of conflict between lwj and jc bc lwj wont forgive him and thinks jc is throwing them an elaborate ceremony to buy wwx’s love. Jc is really just sad bc his shixiong wasnt going to invite him to his wedding conscious of the fact that a marrying in secret would give the appearance that they dont have the support of their sects and fueled further anti-wwx sentiment. The wedding goes off with minimal problems, besides wwx going awol the day before to go nighthunting with the junior quartet. It ends with jc showing vulnerability and hugging wwx in the family shrine. Side Wangxian. Very jc-centric. Excellent nuanced jc narration. No smut. T rating is accurate. JC’s POV.
