  1. Summary

    I made a place to put everything in this AU that is unrelentingly brutal.

    Yes, my TEO-verse AU as a whole does in fact address difficult and depressing themes. The distinction I'm drawing is between fics that are more than 90% pure misery and those that have more of a clear upward trajectory and/or positive mood.

    :glances at drafts: You can expect this sub-series to end up having:
    ~ multiple pieces of pre-canon-divergence traumatic backstory for Wen Ning, Wei Wuxian, Lan Wangji .... and Jiang Cheng, Nie Mingjue ... and Wen Qing ... and maybe others ...
    ~ non-backstory moments of not-sexy darkfic and introspective angst
    ~ possibly some sexy darkfic
    ~ possibly some AUs of AU
    ~ a dead dove tag sooner or late, if my computer stopped eating my drafts

    Please note that avoiding this sub-series won't put you in exclusive fluff-land; it's a matter of degree.

  2. Summary

    This is the sub-series for works in my TEO-verse that are fun, happy, sweet, uplifting, positive, or otherwise qualified largely as fluff!

    TEO-verse stands for Through Each Other; it's a canon divergence AU of MDZS frankencanon, starting from the Burial Mounds Settlement period, focused on fix-it the hard way, unfridging awesome characters, and exploring WangNingXian relationships. The AU is angsty but these fics are not!

    There may be traces of angst, as background, but these are fics that are intended to make you feel better by letting you see the characters having a good day. Some works might have relationship-focused or mildly explicit content, but the focus is on general audiences type works, with a joyful tone. Expect chosen family feels, community, friendship, music, tea, cats, rabbits, queer and/or disabled characters experiencing validation, and so on.

    Reading these fics won't give you a clue as to the overall plot, sorry.

  3. Summary

    A series of fics of varied lengths over years of a canon divergence AU.

    Hopeful but deals with dark themes; butterfly-wing-flap small changes to major canon-divergence; fix-it, a long hard emotionally grinding way; WangNingXian. Explores: redemption, mistakes, supportive relationships, gender, embodiment, disability, trauma, & hope, thru fantasy.

    Please jump in anywhere! (∞ = suggested starting points)

    Please PLEASE mind tags. Fics in this AU vary wildly in tone and content warnings.

    Fanon-influenced mix of mostly live action and book canons, thus tags. No posting schedule.

    If you leave a first comment on a fic/chapter, I'll link music, relating to the mood of chapter or characters! Probably. Yes, this is to encourage comments, even 1 emoji!


    Regarding yr humble AU fanwriter. Wingycat is: queer, genderqueer, poly, kinky, neurodivergent, mentally ill, disabled, in love with stories; opinionated. Wingycat is not: Chinese, Asian or Asian-American, or Chinese-speaking. Also, cannot fly on a sword.

    To contact: comment w/ sentence that shows you read; ask for Discord handle. Always looking for: typos, concrit, groups, betas, sensitivity readers.

  4. Summary

    All the fics in this sub-series are canon compliant. That is, they fit with frankencanon--a mix of mostly CQL | The Untamed and the Mo Dao Zu Shi novel, in translation.

    Chronologically, these fics begin with the Mo Dao Zu Shi characters' childhoods, move through their youths, the Cloud Recesses Lectures and Sunshot Campaign arcs of canon, and roughly up to the Burial Mounds Settlement Period.

    At that point, TEO-verse diverges from canon. Subsequent fics are in the main TEO-verse series, instead.

    Summary

    After a year together, Wei Wuxian has been tied up with his husband's forehead ribbon enough times to get an idea of what he likes, and decides to get him a present to make things a little more fun for both of them. But as usual, when Wei Wuxian asks for trouble, he always gets a little more of it back than he's expecting.

    Summary

    Maybe it’s that they’ve stayed in the Cloud Recesses for too long, they’re overdue for another night hunt, and even Lan Wangji is getting antsy. Maybe it’s the fall of Wei Wuxian’s under robe, sloppily tied and slipping down his pale shoulder.

    Just the once, he uncharacteristically tells himself. Just this time.

    ---

    Lan Wangji wakes Wei Wuxian up at 5am in the morning and they bone.
