    Summary

    A close rewatching/analysis of all 50 episodes of The Untamed, with heaps of images and around a 50-50 mix of angst and laughs.

    Major focuses of my analysis are: 1. Lan Wangji and Wei Wuxian's relationship and how it drives their development as individuals, 2. Wei Wuxian and Jiang Cheng's relationship and family dynamic, 3. trauma and how it affects people & relationships, and 4. how are all of these people so pretty, just look at them, they are all so fucking pretty, oh my god

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian comes back to Cloud Recesses after a year of wandering the world, hoping to start a relationship with Lan Zhan. He doesn’t expect to come into the middle of a case of sleeping sickness mysteriously killing people, nor does he expect what follows, putting everything he holds dear on the line once again.

    Summary

    The dream shifts. They’re back home now, tangled up in bed, buried under a mountain of blankets and, at least in Wei Ying’s case, sore in all the ways he doesn’t mind being sore in. His husband is radiating warmth, and Wei Ying burrows into his arms happily. He presses his still-freezing toes to his husband’s calves and muffles a snort of laughter against Lan Zhan’s chest when he feels the muscles tense momentarily from the shock. Lan Zhan nips at his ear in retaliation but continues to run his fingers soothingly through Wei Ying’s hair. He melts into the touch. The only thing keeping him from turning into a puddle is the strong familiar arms around him, holding him together, holding him close.

    When Wei Ying wakes up, he’s full-body shivering. His hand slides across the bed, reaching instinctively for the warmth of someone who was never there to begin with.

    Wei Ying is an art major by day, cultivator by night. After a seemingly routine night-hunt, he starts getting these strange, vivid dreams of a man in white he’s never met before yet somehow feels like he’s known his whole life…

    Summary

    “Are you seriously telling me,” he started slowly, “that my body is reacting to not being an uncontrollably horny teenager by turning me into an uncontrollably horny adult?”

    The barest hint of a smile tugged at Lan Zhan’s lips before he schooled his expression, seeming to realize Wei Wuxian could not handle being laughed at at that moment.

    “Mn.”

    Summary

    Lan Zhan dies two years before canon and promptly wakes up in the library at Cloud Recesses right across from Wei Wuxian, napping facedown in a pile of copywork.

    He has a lot of questions. Is this the afterlife? If it's not, then is he alone with his memories? And most importantly, what does he need to do to keep his soulmate alive this time?

    Wei Ying did not stir as he knelt down by the desk. It had been so long since Lan Zhan had seen those beloved features and even longer since he’d been allowed to either get or stay this close to Wei Ying.

    He looked so different from Lan Zhan’s memories; apple cheeked, clean, and relaxed.

    Lan Zhan clamped both hands over his own mouth to stop the pained noise that threatened to escape him. Hot tears spilled down his face as he watched the young, safe, and whole boy sleep. His stomach cramped with the effort of holding the sound in, but he’d sooner die than wake Wei Ying up.
