    Summary

    Jiang Cheng just blows his breath out and rolls his eyes right back at Wei Wuxian. "Stop being an asshole," he says. "You're lucky this is being set up for you. Do you know how many people would die--literally die--to get the chance to be betrothed to Lan Wangji?"

    "Betrothed." Wei Wuxian rolls the word around in his mouth. "It even sounds stupid."

     

    Or, an arranged marriage canon-divergent fic where the war doesn't happen, the golden core loss doesn't happen, but Jiang Fengmian and Madame Yu still die, Jiang Cheng is the sect leader, and Lan Wangji is still called Hanguang-jun because, well, look at him.

    Summary

    Which is why Wei Wuxian is severely annoyed that one the first day moving in, there's a translucent man staring out his bedroom window.
    "Are you kidding me?!" Wei Wuxian huffs, voice bouncing down the landing as he drops his bags with a thud at the top of the stairs.
    The man turns from where he's been staring through the dusty pane and looks directly at Wei Wuxian. Their gazes meet and the man's eyes widen like saucers.
    In a deep, disbelieving voice, he murmurs, "You can see me?"
    "Nope!" Wei Wuxian announces and turns around to march right back down the stairs.
    It’s stupid, really. The man is already waiting at the bottom of the staircase when Wei Wuxian gets there.
    Wei Wuxian stops dead, eyeing the spectre. The man's eyes narrow triumphantly.
    “You can see me," he states.
    Wei Wuxian turns around and marches back up the stairs. The man is already there at the top.

    Summary

    Wen Qing finds him on the roof of where he’s been staying, nursing a jar of Sishu’s wine.
    “Wei Wuxian! What are you doing up there?”
    Wei Wuxian hasn’t had nearly enough wine to get tipsy, let alone drunk enough for his words to slur, but he slurs them anyway for nostalgia. “What if Lan Zhan doesn’t fall in love with me?”
    -
    Wei Wuxian finds himself in the past, a few months before the Gusu Lan lectures, and decides that his best shot at hiding his trauma fixing the future is faking his own kidnapping and asking Wen Qing who all he needs to kill before she or someone she trusts is in charge of QishanWen. Clearly, he thought this through.

    Or: Wei Wuxian creates a No War!AU, and then he has to live in it.
