  1. Summary

    A series of snippets and fics of various lengths scattered over years of a canon divergence AU.


    The AU as a whole is: hopeful but dealing with dark themes; butterfly-wing-flap small changes leading to major canon-divergence; fix-it, the long hard emotionally grinding way; WangNingXian.


    Please PLEASE mind the tags. Published and planned fics in this 'verse vary wildly in tone and in content warnings.


    I write a fanon-influenced mishmash of mostly live action and book canons, so I tag for both fandoms.


    There is no posting schedule as yet.


    If you leave a first comment of any length on a fic or chapter, then I will post an external link to a piece of music, from any MDZS/CQL source or another piece that speaks to me, relating to the mood of the chapter or the characters!

  3. 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.

  4. 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, music, cats, queer characters experiencing validation, and so on.

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

    Summary

    There are times that Lan Wangji remembers, when the Jingshi was frozen into silence; when the days stretched out, endless and empty, a barren expanse; times when Lan Wangji felt himself frozen into silence. Sizhui and Xiongzhang helped, but they inevitably left and then it crept back along the edges of the house like frost.

     

     

    But now, his days are filled with Wei Ying. No matter what happens, Lan Wangji cannot regret that.

     

     

    Winter in Cloud Recesses, a mysterious curse, and the shadows of the past.

    Summary

    Sweet, loyal Wen Ning deserves every good thing in the world, but since Wei Wuxian can't give him that, he can at least make him feel good for a night...

    Summary

    Jin Guangyao asks for what he needs. He gets it.

    “You’re afraid this is who I am,” Lan Xichen murmurs, lips on the shell of Jin Guangyao's ear. “And you don’t know how to do anything but break. So if all you can choose is when you break by my hand, you’d rather it sooner than later. Is that right, A-Yao?”

    Summary

    “Can you lift your arms for me?” he asks, so tenderly it makes her breath catch. Qin Su lifts her arms. Wen Ning cups her elbows, lifting and rotating until he has her where he wants her. He slides one of his feet forward, uses the inside of his thigh to nudge her legs until she shifts her feet closer together. The grip on her elbows slides out to her wrists, holding her steady as he moves her, until she’s standing with her arms straight out from her side.

    “Good,” Wen Ning says, and then, quieter, with just a hint of a laugh on his voice, “T-pose.”
