    Summary

    “I’m not hungry anymore either,” Wei Wuxian continues. “I’ve decided that I don’t actually need to eat dinner. Who needs winter melon soup when bathroom tap water has such a deliciously sulfurous depth of flavor? Ugh—I can’t see anything, where are those damn towels—”

    A paper towel is shoved into Wei Wuxian’s hand.

    “Oh, thanks—”

    “I do not think drinking that water is advisable,” says a voice that is definitely not Jiang Cheng’s.

    Or, Wei Wuxian and Lan Wangji meet in a restaurant bathroom after they both go there to escape from their uncomfortable family dinner gatherings.

    Summary

    "You worry me," Lan WangJi tells him seriously. He puts his hands on Wei WuXian's knees for lack of a better place to put them. Wei WuXian places his own hands on top of Lan WangJi's, presumably to stop him from trying again to check his bandages.

     

    "You don't need to worry," Wei WuXian says. "I swear I'm fine. I'll tell you if something feels off. You know me, I'm a huge crybaby whiner."

     

    Lan WangJi frowns at him again. It's true that Wei WuXian can be a bit of a crybaby, but only about injuries that don't actually matter. When it's something important, like a ghost curse or a fundamentally unstable necromantic practice, Wei WuXian keeps it to himself. "Ridiculous," Lan WangJi tells him. Wei WuXian grins down at him.

    In the Jingshi, after Koi Tower.

    Summary

    “I travel so I may do my duty as a cultivator. Not in order to make acquaintances.”

    Wei Wuxian huffs in amusement. “Ehhh, Lan-daozhang, no way. I would’ve thought that a friendly guy like you would have friends in every region!”

    Lan Wangji’s jaw clenches.

    Or; in the dead of winter, traveling cultivator Lan Wangji gets snowed in at a remote mountain village, falls in love with the chief’s adopted son, and stumbles upon a dark secret that is decades in the making.

    Summary

    “Just do what you can, Senior Wei!” Sizhui whispers. “We’ll be right here!”

    “Yeah!” Jingyi says. “And just remember: it’s going to be a disaster either way, so it’s not like there’s much you can do about it!”

    (Or: Lan Wangji and Jiang Cheng plan a discussion conference together. It goes about as well as Wei Wuxian expects.)

    Summary

    This story starts with Wei Ying falling to his death from that cliff at Nevernight. Of course he doesn't die, or does he? When he finds himself at the jingshi where Wangji is kneeling in the snow, waiting for his mama to come back, Wei Ying wonders what he is nowadays; spirit, ghost, or human?

    Also note, I'm European, and although I tried researching the art of calling a person by its correct name, be it birth name, courtesy name or title escapes me. So feel free to skip this story and find a (probably Chinese) writer who does understand all these customs!
