    Summary

    On the first day of Lan Zhan’s first class of senior year, Wei Ying walks into his classroom.

    “Oh, good morning, Wei Ying!” says Professor Song cheerfully, because she has betrayed him. She smiles at Wei Ying, because she has betrayed him, and then she gestures at Lan Zhan and says, “This is Lan Zhan, have you two met before?” because she has betrayed him.

    “No,” Wei Ying answers, and sticks his hand out at Lan Zhan. “Nice to meet you!”

    “The two of you are going to be TA’ing this class together,” Professor Song goes on, like she has not just thrown off Lan Zhan’s entire day and possibly his entire month. “And, of course, helping out with my research together as well, so I hope you two can get along well!”

     

    or; Lan Zhan tries very hard not to be Wei Ying's friend. He does not succeed.

    Summary

    “Hey, that guy.” He points with his chin, and Nie Huaisang’s eyes widen when he catches sight of the black-clad figure in the DJ booth.

    “Oh, shit, it’s Lan Wangji.”

    “So I’m not going crazy? It’s actually him?”

    Wei Ying hasn’t seen Lan Wangji in years, and now here he is, and looking like that, like this, like the dark deity of some starkly gorgeous underworld.

    ***

    (Or: Wei Ying thinks goths are kind of funny, until he runs into San Francisco’s premier goth club DJ, Lan Wangji.)

    Summary

    When Wangji was eighteen he’d walked into the first class of his fall semester painting module and there’d been a boy in a hilariously ugly floppy knit hat sitting cross-legged on the floor at the front of the room. He’d had a sheet of canvas paper taped to his board and his board clamped between his legs and a tackle box of brushes and tubes—a real fishing tackle box, with a fish-shaped logo on it that said BASS, not one of the nice art supply storage boxes they sold in the campus bookstore, like the one Wangji was carrying—open beside him. Everyone else had settled into the rows of stools and easels, but that boy had stayed on the floor for the whole two hour and thirty minute studio. Wangji had looked at him and thought, that idiot’s back is going to hurt.

     

    [Former best friends Lan Wangji, paintings conservator, and Wei Wuxian, art handler, meet again and realize... neither of them were actually in unrequited love.]
