    Summary

    Wei Wuxian had successfully gotten under his skin -- quite literally this time.

    Lan Wangji tried to reason with his own emotions, but the presence of the flower inside him was not one to be questioned. With each breath, he could feel the petals tickle his windpipe, could taste their pollen on his tongue, as if saying they were quite real and here to stay.

    Summary

    Wei Ying visits Lan Zhan every Saturday to try his newest cakes, as any good friend would do. He is also—and he is quite sure of this—not in love with him, not even a little bit.

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian seemed surprised when Lan Wangji asked him for a moment to talk, even more so when he revealed the reason. Frankly, he appeared to be on the verge of laughing.

    “So, Jin Zixuan wants to get along with me...”

    Lan Wangji nodded.

    “And sent you as the middle-man…”

    Lan Wangji nodded.

    “Because he thinks we get along?”

    Lan Wangji nodded, a little at loss himself.

    Summary

    "Why," Lan Wangji said each word in sheer agony, "are you not decent?"

    "My clothes are wet," Wei Wuxian answered. "If I don't take them off, I run the risk of freezing to death. Don't you live up in the mountains? I thought you'd know about the dangers of the cold."

    "I do." Lan Wangji looked absolutely tortured, staring at the cave wall. "So long as there's a heat source and your clothes are no longer soaking wet, you can put them back on."

    Wei Wuxian made a face. "But I just got dry. I don't want to put damp pants back on."

    "Wei Ying!"

    "Alright, alright, fine! But just the pants."

    ------------------

    An alternate version of the events in the Cave of the Tortoise of Carnage. All the cheesy romantic tropes. All of them. ALL. Basically an excuse to write Lan Wangji panicking and Wei Wuxian being oblivious.

    Summary

    With gentle fingers he lifts Wangji's chin and his eyes go wide when he realizes what's going on.

    "Lan Zhan, are you--" Wei Wuxian looks up to meet his eyes. "I thought you Lans didn't drink?"

    "We don't," Lan Xichen replies. He can't hold in an exasperated sigh. "Except, apparently, where you are involved."

    Lan Wangji gets drunk. Lan Xichen doesn't have time for this. Wei Wuxian is confused, but handling it. Cupcakes are involved at one point.
