    Summary

    It starts like every other fight. Liu Qingge lands one hit to Luo Binghe's every three, both of them bruising and collecting injuries like art. It drags on until the sunlight starts to fade, until they're both breathing heavily and covered in a fine sheet of sweat.

    And then Luo Binghe makes a mistake.

    It's small - just a minor misstep, an unfortunate shift of balance. Against any other opponent, it wouldn't mean a thing. Wouldn't make a difference. But Liu Qingge has been watching. Liu Qingge has been waiting for Luo Binghe to make a mistake for years. He quickly changes his attack mid-step, throwing his weight against the opening Luo Binghe's mistake left, and Luo Binghe falls. Liu Qingge falls with him, of course -he compromised too much of his balance with that attack - but he makes sure to end up on top, straddling Luo Binghe and pressing the flat of Cheng Luan's blade to his neck.

    Without meaning to, without thinking to stop it, Liu Qingge smiles at him, bright and genuine and triumphant.

    Luo Binghe's breath catches.

    "I win."

    ---

    ~Or~ The one where Liu Qingge actually wins a fight and Luo Binghe ends up getting a little hot for Shishu.

    The fix it fic of my dreams, yes to shen jiu redemption and this shen brother relationship!!! Everyone has a happy ending!!!!
    ----------
    Why? he asked Shen Jiu.

    ::Because I never should have accepted him in the first place. He was filthy, lice-ridden gutter-trash without a grasp of even the basics of the scholarly arts. He was so hungry for the approval of those around him that he bowed and scraped like a pathetic sycophant. He started too late for proper cultivation, and his core development was weak and stunted from the beginning. The best I can say for him is that he was obnoxiously stubborn. I did everything I could to dissuade him, to show him he didn’t belong and should leave, but he was too dense get the message.::

    Shang Qinghua hadn’t yet answered, chewing on his chapped lower lip like it was the last meal of a condemned man.

    “Well,” Shen Qingqiu prodded.

    “Because he looked at Luo Binghe and saw everything he hated about himself.”

    ... Damn, Airplane-bro. Respect.

    And

    “Aerith’s death might be inevitable, but I refuse to accept that my didi’s is.”

    Luo Binghe’s confused, “Who is Aerith?” was drowned out by a loud sniffle and wail from Shang Qinghua. Everyone turned to see him gazing at Shen Qingqiu with wide, tear-filled eyes and hands clasped over his heart like it was trying to fly from his chest.

    “My prodigal son,” he said through another sniffle.

    Shen Qingqiu scowled. “I despise you.”

    Yan Xiaohan bites into the goose's wing, and under the curtain of Fu Shen's eyelashes dark pupils blow wide.

    Summary

    Just when the sun has risen high enough to shine its weak rays through the little window, the man wakes up.

    Wei Wuxian is waiting for him, the iron cooking pan held tightly in one hand and Xiao Pingguo perched on his shoulder. Crows always look a little menacing, Wei Wuxian thinks — he hopes he cuts an intimidating figure now, with his crow and his cooking pan. He’s too skinny, not as strong as he used to be, and he doesn’t have a sword. But he has the Stygian Tiger Seal, tucked safely into one of his sleeves. He doesn’t need physical strength for that.

    Now he adjusts his grip on the pan. “Who are you?” he demands.

    The man blinks at him, runs his eyes up and down the length of Wei Wuxian’s body. They’re very pale, almost gold. “My name is Lan Wangji.”

    Or: Wei Wuxian is locked in a tower. Lan Wangji finds him.

    Summary

    To his unbridled horror, Wei Wuxian sees his face up on the giant screen in real time for the entire stadium to see. Still laughing as his face takes a moment to catch up with the sheer mortification he’s feeling, A-Yuan perched on his shoulders as the Lan Wangji cape drapes over them.

    There’s also commentary.

    “—scenes from the stands here, this dad and his son making for an adorable twosome all decked out in support for local hero Lan Wangji—”

    “—Speaking of, our man seems to have taken a little tumble—”

    Wei Wuxian finds Lan Wangji on the field. The ball is nowhere near him but he seems to have fallen inexplicably backwards, sitting on the grass as he looks up at the giant screen.

    Right up at the footage of him.

    (AU where A-Yuan is professional footballer Lan Wangji's biggest fan, and his babysitter Wei Wuxian wants nothing more than to forget his days as the photographer of their school football team, calling out to the captain from the stands just so he'd look around at him.)
