    Summary

    At home, Lan Wangji steels himself before taking off his shirt to investigate the problem on his arm. He isn’t sure which will be worse— to peel away his sleeve and find something horrific, or find nothing at all out of the ordinary.

    Still, the only way to know is to take action, so he shoves his anxious uncertainty down into his golden core to burn away into nothing and unbuttons his shirt. Out come the cuff links, set gently back into their case. Finally, he tugs his arms out of their sleeves and, not yet looking at his arm, puts the shirt into its appropriate color-sorted laundry bin.

    At last, he lets his gaze move to the back of his left forearm. His breath catches in his throat. The fingers of his right hand move, shaking just slightly, to skim at the half inch spot about halfway between his elbow and wrist.

    Hard to the touch, there is a patch of cool white stone on his skin. More accurately, perhaps, there is a patch of his skin that has transmutated into, if he had to hazard a guess, white jade.

    OR

    In which Lan Wangji is slowly turning into jade and turns to local curse-breaking expert Wei Wuxian for help.

    Summary

    The picture is of Wei Ying, that much is clear. It’s of a lot more of Wei Ying than Lan Zhan is used to seeing. He supposes that, technically, Wei Ying is dressed. It’s a bare technicality, since one of Wei Ying’s hands has rucked up his black tank top practically to his collarbone, showing a long expanse of abdomen and one nipple. Sweat beads on his sternum, catching the light like jewels. His other hand is--Lan Zhan feels his eyes widen, as though unable to look away from a train wreck--on his hip, one thumb tugging down the waistband of a pair of red briefs. Wei Ying is biting his lower lip and looking directly into the camera, sultry, his eyes dark and inviting. His erection is obvious, outlined against the red of the briefs and framed carefully with the hand on his hip. Lan Zhan’s brain goes wildly, screamingly blank.

    Or: Lan Zhan accidentally finds his best friend's OnlyFans account and has an ongoing emotional crisis.

    Summary

    “Let’s do this, then. Good luck to you two, and we’ll meet you back here in two weeks’ time.”

    With that, other-Gon takes other-Yeong’s hand and leads him through the portal.

    And really, this is where Gon should have clued the fuck in.

    Instead, his brain stops all rational thought for about three seconds, and then throws itself into lightning speed mental acrobatics. Gon eventually comes to the conclusion that really, it’s not that strange. He himself has been known to drag people around by the wrist if he gets impatient, after all. And so what if other-Gon drags or, well, holds, his Yeong by the hand instead of the wrist? Different world, different customs. It’s all fine.

     

    Or, more succinctly put:

    Gon and Yeong switch places with their doppelgangers in order to catch the last of the traitor's followers, and it turns out they will have to fake a relationship to keep up the pretence.
