    Summary

    It happened like this: Jin Ling was a sect leader now, which was, and Jingyi really meant this, fucking hilarious. There were few things funnier, in his honest opinion.

    Because he was young, and inexperienced, and also — it had to be said — a real shithead, there was apparently some belief amongst his advisors that the best way forward, to promote the picture of a stable, mature sect leader who absolutely did not cry at the drop of a hat, was for Jin Ling to get married.

    -

    OR: Jin Ling and Jingyi get engaged.

    Things spiral from there.

    Summary

    “First, you get the money. Then you get the power, respect - hos come last.”

    Wen Qing traps Wei Wuxian in the Demon Slaughtering Cave, but Wei Wuxian isn’t interested in being the beneficiary of the Wen Remnants’ noble sacrifice. His efforts to free himself accidentally send him back to the beginning of the Sunshot Campaign. Coreless but armed with demonic cultivation, knowledge of the future and his wits, Wei Wuxian takes advantage of this opportunity to come out on top of both the war and its aftermath—before either has a chance to happen—by marrying and swiftly burying the cultivation world’s worst men.

    Lan Wangji is confused, hurt, and uncomfortably aroused by Wei Wuxian’s improbably elaborate series of Sect-themed bridal negligees.

    Summary

    The gate opens a tiny fraction. You can see Wei Wuxian's gray eyes peering out. "Ah, Lan Zhan," he says. His teeth flash in a smile. "What brings you to Lotus Pier today? Don't you know we're closed for my sister's wedding?"

    "Wei Ying," Wangji says, always a little too grave when it comes to young Master Wei. He presents you to him. "My brother is here."
