    Summary

    Shang Qinghua goes to take a self-indulgent peek at his baby protagonist son and gets a kick to the shrivelled heart for his troubles. He gave up on changing the story years ago! Yet he finds himself helping his protagonist son's adoptive mother anyway. Just this one change won't matter too much, right?

    One little change leads to more. Shang Qinghua never meant to care, but he becomes invested in making sure that his new family survives the looming plot. With the changes to the world cascading around him, with his position as a traitor pulling him between his sect and a certain ice demon, and with the protagonist growing up so quickly, how is one displaced author meant to ensure that everything turns out all right?

    A Pre-Canon to Canon Divergence story.

    Summary

    When their mother is injured in an awfully normal way, the triplets Madrigal are left with a sudden reckoning about what they would do without her.

    They respond to this, as rational adults do, with an eventual night of drinking under the moon.

    But, when a lack of thought leaves them exposed to the elements, all three are left suddenly encumbered by unexpected illness.

    And nothing strains a Madrigal's gift like a head cold.

    (Aka I combined like three fics in my head. Welcome to the philosophical sickfic with angst).

    Summary

    Wen Qing relaxes minutely, scrutinizing him. “Then,” she asks, “why are you here, Lan-er-gongzi?”

    He thinks of seven children, living here, surrounded by ghosts, fathered — fathered? — by the one who harnesses resentment to command the dead. Children he has named, inexplicably, Lan. Wen Qionglin is a fierce corpse, and yet he apparently talks and thinks and makes his own decisions. The children call him jiujiu. The children climb on his lap and ignore his instructions and say things like “he’s dead” with a careless lilt in their voices.

    Whatever the Yiling Patriarch is doing, whatever Wei Wuxian wants, Lan Wangji does not think it is an act of war.

    So he does not say, “I am here to neutralize the Yiling Patriarch.”

    He does not say, “Sentiment is gathering against you.”

    He does not say, “First liberate, second suppress, third eliminate.”

    Lying is forbidden, so Lan Wangji bows his head and says something true: “The Lan sect has very recently learned of seven disciples living in Yiling. I have come to attend their education.”

    OR: It's a Sound of Music AU. Sort of.
