    Summary

    "I don't want to really date anyone. It's so stupid, I just need to pretend date someone until Jiang Cheng gets his act together, then go back to my own life." He stares at his empty coffee cup.

    "Date me," Lan Zhan says. Then he looks at Wei Ying's empty cup. "Would you like another cup of coffee?"

    "Always," Wei Ying says automatically. "But wait, what."

    "I'll get you another cup." Lan Zhan rises smoothly from the table.

    "No, wait, hang on." Wei Ying grabs his wrist before he can take the cup and Lan Zhan freezes up, staring down at where Wei Ying is hanging on to him. "Fuck, sorry, I'll—" Wei Ying hastily lets go of his wrist. "Sorry, I—what did you mean?"

    "I can pretend to date you," Lan Zhan says. "You take it with cream and sugar, correct?"

    Summary

    His fingers are still clasped between Wangji's. In the mirror Wangji watches him tuck his coat between his thighs so that he can fuss with the tucked-in hem of his shirt, tousle up the side of his hair, all one-handed. "I hope what I'm wearing is okay."

    "It's good," Wangji says. "You look good."

    "I guess I must," Wei Ying says, and then he smiles and bites his teeth into his bottom lip for a second, devastatingly, and before Wangji can drop dead the doors to the elevator slide open, and the hostess station appears.

    Summary

    "We were raised as a generation of war, A-Yuan," Xian-gege said to him. "If your generation choses to be one of love - well, I don't think any of us would be opposed to that."

     

    In the aftermath of the events at the Guanyin temple, the cultivation world scrambles to understand their current reality. A man roams the countryside with a string of white in his hair. Another sits on the highest seat of power with a ribbon of red around his forehead. The younger generation turns out to be full of romantics. Nie Huaisang is to blame for everything, always. Jiang Cheng realizes that happiness has been more that 16 years overdue.

    Wei Wuxian declares that it's time that bitch pays up.

    After a generation of war - much to the consternation of the elders, much to the delight of the young, much to the pleased shock of the subjects of the tale - the world welcomes a love story with open arms.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    “Those people,” he began, slow, sure, “died knowing that a world which deemed itself righteous had deemed their deaths as just. That this righteous world had killed their parents, their children, their siblings, without mercy, without reason, without restraint. That no force on earth would protect them from that righteousness.”

    Summary

    Lan Wangji's self control is not actually stronger than the eternal temptation that is Wei Wuxian, and despite all reason and logic, there are Consequences. Unfortunately (or fortunately), Wei Wuxian has never been very good at heeding those.

    OR: How many babies can I give Wangxian without actually changing the main plot?

    Summary

    Everyone at the Academy knows how Wei Ying died: fumbling a routine raid on a vampire lair. Killed saving his brother, his body ripped to shreds. The vampires threw a bacchanal, feasted on slayer blood all night.

    No-one knows how Wei Ying came back to life.

    A Buffy-inspired AU.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Everyone at the Academy knows how Wei Ying died: fumbling a routine raid on a vampire lair. Killed saving his adoptive brother, his body ripped to shreds. The vampires threw a bacchanal, feasted on slayer blood all night. (Another Lan slaying precept: Attachments create liability. Lan Zhan can't imagine being the slayer for three years and still making such an elementary mistake.)

    Weirdly sweet and full of yearning?
