your history keeps pulling me down

Work Text:

(A video playing, dark lighting and bright neon colours, probably a bar. Man on screen laughs)

Man on screen (wearing a red and black cheongsam, pointing at the camera): I want you to know that this is the lamest dare you’ve ever made me do, Huaisang.

Voice off screen: Just pick a song already, won’t you?

Man on screen: Awwww, Chengcheng, if I didn’t know better I’d think you want to hear me sing!

Voice off screen: Just get on with it, idiot!

Man on screen (making placating gestures with his hands): Alright, alright, I will. (He puts a finger to his lips and looks thoughtful) Mmm, I want Florence then, kay?

Voice off screen: Florence?

Man on screen: Yeah, yeah, Florence and the Machine. And I’ll sing, ah… Leave My Body! (He laughs) Yes, yes, Leave My Body. C’mon, a’Sang! Do the thing! Who wants to do the background vocals? Mianmian!

Voice off screen: We don’t need background vocals.

Man on screen (offended): Hey! If I do this and let a’Sang film it, I’m gonna do it right! Come on, Mianmian, will you help me out?

(A woman walks into view, wearing a yellow cocktail dress, dragging a girl in a red dress with her. They stand a little behind the man, the woman in the red dress scowling.)

Girl in yellow: Qingqing and I will do it, but remember that you owe us, Wei Ying.

Man named Wei Ying (laughing): Alright, alright. I’ll paint you both a portrait, how about that? Let’s do this now! A’Sang!

Voice off screen: I’m doing it! Give me a minute—do you know how hard it is to see in this lighting?

(Music starts playing. Wei Ying grins, starts to sway with the music.)

Voice off screen: How long is that intro?

Different voice: Oh hush!

(Wei Ying starts to sing.)

SangSang @second_nie

Thank you all for your kind words! @weiwuxian appreciates you all, but he’s too hungover to tell you so himself rn. If you want to support him, you can do so on patreon here and follow his professional art account at @yilinglaozu. He does commissions too!

Wei Ying wakes up and immediately panics, because there is too much light in his room, which means it must be late already, and if he’s late for another shift Song Lan might actually deck him for it. It’s not until he falls off the bed scrambling for his phone that he sees it’s a Sunday, and exhales.

The electronic clock writes 12:41 and under is what appears to be an actual sea of notifications. Wei Ying frowns. He wasn’t that drunk last night, was he? He’d remembered if he posted something wild that blew up again—like last time. They don’t talk about last time—the twit was deleted, and it means Wei Ying never has to face it again.

He unlocks the phone screen and squints down at it. He has 100+ notifications of twitter for both his accounts—maybe 100+ for each account—and that might be the most notifications he’s had since he made these accounts years ago, when he was young and stupid and has just graduated the Gusu Music Academy, venturing on his own into art school.

Just what in the world did he do? In both accounts too.

He has around 20+ tags, a million notifs and even more new twits in his feed. He has DMs from his sister, his brother, Xingchen, Xuanyu and a number of other people that he doesn’t text that often. Wei Ying blinks down at the screen. Right. Perhaps he should take these one at a time.

Curious enough to skip brunch to look through them, Wei Ying shrugs, and clicks on the DM notifications first.

Lan Zhan had started making reaction videos on youtube as a vocal coach only at his brother’s suggestion. It was not really a thought he had entertained—he is not usually a person with obvious reactions. But as a vocal coach, it’s easier to comment on an artist’s singing technique, on their voice, their rhythm and all that.

He didn’t think he was going to have that much fun with it, honestly, but there is something relaxing about listening to a different artist people recommend to him and making a video of himself listening to them. So, here he is, looking through his twitter account and through the comments of his last video, and there is one particular twit that makes him pause.


panic!panic!panic! @elliot17

@hanguangjun can you do a reaction of the #wei_ying_sings video????? His voice is so /good/ I’d love to hear what you think!

For a moment, Lan Zhan entertains seriously the possibility of searching for that video right now, even if that would break his promise to only search the songs when he’s doing his videos. But the tag writes Wei Ying, and Lan Zhan knows that name. Three whole years later it continues to haunt him.

After they graduated from the Gusu Music Academy together, at the same year, Lan Zhan followed his uncle’s connections and studied to become a vocal couch for their music industry. Wei Ying had been accepted into a small art school in Yiling, and he moved away as soon as he could. Lan Zhan’s life had been so busy, and then Wei Ying’s too, and they did not keep in touch. Lan Zhan had entertained the notion of searching for him on twitter, but he refrained. It might possibly hurt more to see Wei Ying’s life and be reminded that he is no longer a part of it.

It can’t be the same Wei Ying. After all, it could very well be different characters. Lan Zhan knows, he remembers, that Wei Ying plays the flute, and that Wei Ying’s voice is beautiful and has a lot of potential, but Wei Ying had never taken singing seriously; not as seriously as Lan Zhan. Wei Ying had played the flute seemingly without effort, but only as a hobby he said, and he sang like an siren (Lan Zhan is biased when it comes to Wei Ying, but not at this, this is an objective fact) but had laughed off any professional singing careers.

Wei Ying had loved art. Wei Ying loved creating and colours, loved getting paint on his clothes and on his hands and on his cheek, loved making a mess with colored fingers. Wei Ying loved creating art, and he was beautiful in it. His paintings were breath-taking, just the sight of them, the blending, the colours, the strokes—masterpieces.

Lan Zhan hopes he can keep creating art for the rest of his life.

He closes the app, and then closes his phone, and gets up to make himself some tea.

Perhaps this was a mistake.

The camera is looking at him, but Lan Zhan is looking at the video on his screen, at the low quality of the man in the red and black cheongsam in Nie Huaisang’s account. He knows that his eyes are wide, but he cannot react. He is possibly not breathing, but it doesn’t matter.

The moment he clicked the video, three things became clear:

  1. Fuck, this is Huaisang’s account, Lan Huan is following him. That is why his brother sent him so many messages this morning. Lan Zhan has carefully not looked at them yet.
  2. Fuck, that is Wei Ying. The Wei Ying he knows, who goes by the nickname Wei Wuxian from his adoptive family.
  3. Fuck, his voice. Wei Ying’s voice is even more beautiful than Lan Zhan remembers it being. He hits all the notes with an effortless ease that is more than impressive. Wei Ying may have never taken singing seriously, but he has improved significantly.

Lan Zhan may have actually played himself.

Wei Wuxian wakes up the next day to his alarm and groans, because it is not his day off, and he needs to go to the coffee shop early, because otherwise Song Lan might hurt him. He sighs, and turns to his nightstand, reaching for his phone.

His phone says it’s 7:00AM. Wei Ying sighs again, cursing the hour, and proceeds to look through his notifications. He has a few minutes before a’Yuan comes demanding breakfast.

On the top of his tag mention notifs, the very first one says: Lan Zhan @hanguangjun has mentioned you.

Lan Zhan.

Wei Ying drops his phone on his face.

Lan Zhan @hanguangjun

The new video is out! By popular demand, I did the #wei_ying_sings video that went viral a few days ago. @weiwuxian’s vocals are impressive. You certainly have made impressive progress since we were at school, Wei Ying

‘Vocal Coach Reacts to Viral Twitter Video #wei_ying_sings’

(video plays, man on screen wearing a white cardigan looks at the camera with severe eyebrows. Behind him, full book shelves are visible)

Man on screen: hello, I am, as you know, Lan Zhan. Welcome to my new video.Thank you for clicking, please don’t forget to subscribe to my channel. Today, by popular demand, I will be doing a reaction to the newly circulated video that went viral on twitter. I have not seen it yet, but this is what I am here to do. So, without further talking, let’s get to it.

(Lan Zhan looks away, presumably to his computer screen and frowns slightly. A video appears at the bottom of the screen, showing them an image. It’s a dimly lit place with colourful light that a lot of people will recognize as the famous bar Nightless City at Qishan District. The video starts with a man in a red and black cheongsam laughing.)

Man on video (pointing at the camera): I want you to know that this is the lamest dare you’ve ever made me do, Huaisang.

(Lan Zhan’s eyes widen. The video continues for a few moments before he pauses it.)

Lan Zhan: in the spirit of full disclosure, I would like to say that I know Wei Ying already. Unfortunately, we have lost touch over the years.

(Lan Zhan turns back away. The video starts again. Wei Ying starts to sing.)

(The video ends. Lan Zhan closes the widow)

Lan Zhan: Well, certainly I would say that this was incredibly impressive. Ever since I knew him, Wei Ying has had incredible potential. I had told him a lot of times that he could consider a singing career professionally, though he didn’t seem to agree. It seems now, despite, that he has made impressive progress. His vocals are really touching and powerful—he has excellent control over his voice, something that is not easy to do. His vocal range is wide—I have reviewed Florence's Best Live Performances before, so I can really say that he mimicked her perfectly, from the voice to the range and the style.

(Lan Zhan looks away for a moment, then back at the camera.)

Lan Zhan: I think it has truly been a privilege to be able to listen to this amazing piece, despite its bad quality of image. Thank you all for the recommendation.

the gang and the band all together



jc: excuse me why do I care about this

nhs: ah, wei ying, didn’t you know that lan zhan works for lan music industries now?


lqy: judging by your reaction I’m going to take a wild guess and say no

jc: that’s not bc he’s good, it’s bc you have a crush

wwx: shut up

wwx: anyway as I was saying, I got a notif today that he tagged me on twitter

wwx: which???? he has a twitter???? since when?????

nhs: a few years now I think er-ge mentioned it

wwx: and you didn’t tell me????????

wq: back to the point

wwx: right

wwx: he made a reaction video for my silly video a’sang posted, and apparently he said ON CAMERA that I impressed him and he actually looked impressed too wtf

wn: you are v impressive wei-ge

wwx: that’s not the point WTF

wwx: I am having a mental breakdown that is too much new information

nhs: wei ying, how ab you just DM him on twitter and start with smth funny


wwx: that’s not a bad idea hold on I’ll brb

BI THE WEI @weiwuxian

Going on a date with my high school crush I meet again after three years…. And he’s going to meet my son…. Haha no ofc im not nervous at all 😳 😳

Seeing Lan Zhan again is none at all like Wei Ying expected it to be, and yet it exactly like he remembered meeting Lan Zhan for the first time.

Lan Zhan is beautiful in his white and blues, elegant in the cut of his jaw and the curve of his face, ethereal in the sweep of this black hair against his brow. Wei Ying feels his breath stop, just for a little. Lan Zhan is also looking extremely more panicked as a’Yuan clings to his leg and wails for his baba. It’s adorable.

Wei Ying takes a picture and plans to post it once he can.

“Lan Zhan!” Wei Ying calls, and Lan Zhan’s eyes immediately turn to him. God, Lan Zhan’s eyes are so beautiful. Lan Zhan is so beautiful—how is it fair for someone to be this perfect???

“Baba!” a’Yuan cries when he sees him, throwing himself at his arms. Obediently, Wei Ying bends down and picks him up, lets a’Yuan hide his face in the crook of his neck.

“Aiya, Lan Zhan, fancy seeing you here,” Wei Ying grins. He consulted Huaisang before coming, so he knows that his red shirt cuts just so and shows off his muscles, his tight leather jeans frame him enticingly, the dip of his collar just enough to show interesting skin. His hair is up into a ponytail tied with his favourite red scrunchie, the one Lan Zhan gifted him back at school. His make-up is touched just so, some eyeliner there and some lipstick here.

Wei Ying looks good. He would be offended if Lan Zhan’s eyes had not looked him over. That was, in fact, the goal. Lan Zhan is supposed to look because Wei Ying wants him to.

“Wei Ying,” Lan Zhan says, and though his eyes are still wide, there’s a tilt to his lips; a soft smile by Lan Zhan’s standards. Wei Ying’s heart does some acrobatics just seeing it. “Hello.”

“Ah, Lan Zhan, so serious!” Wei Ying chuckles, and can’t stop his expression from turning the slightest bit soft. “I really missed you, Lan Zhan.”

“Mn,” Lan Zhan says. “Missed Wei Ying too. This is…”

“This is a’Yuan!” Wei Ying brightens, showing off his baby like a proud soccer mom. A’Yuan barely raises his head at the mention of his name, eyes wide and curious. “My son. I gave birth to him.” Lan Zhan’s eyes widen for just a second, and Wei Ying laughs, the force of it sending him forward. “Ah, kidding, Lan Zhan, I’m kidding!”

“Mn,” Lan Zhan says.

“Lan Zhan!” Wei Ying says, walking closer to Lan Zhan and tugging him, so they can start towards the café. “I can’t believe we’ve both had twitter for so long and we didn’t know that about each other! And you’re making youtube videos too now!!! Such a rebel, Lan Zhan!”

“It was brother’s idea,” Lan Zhan says, because of course it was. The tips of his ears are tinged a little pink.

“I love it,” Wei Ying says honestly. “You’re so good at it. After I saw that you tagged me I had to watch the video—you were so sweet, Lan Zhan!!! I really wasn’t as impressive as you said—and then I liked it so much I went and saw all your videos! They make you so happy, Lan Zhan, I’m glad.”

“Mn,” Lan Zhan says again, and now his ears are definitely pink. “Wei Ying is very impressive. I was just telling the truth.”

Wei Ying’s cheeks colour unexpectedly. “Ahahaha, yeah, a lot of people liked it apparently.” he wants to rub his neck, but his hand can’t reach when he’s holding a’Yuan. “And so many people said I looked so pretty in my cheongsam! Did you think so too, Lan Zhan?”

“Mn,” Lan Zhan says, and Wei Ying stutters. “Wei Ying was pretty. Wei Ying is always pretty. Wei Ying is beautiful.”

Wei Ying’s whole face catches on fire.

“Baba is very pretty!” a’Yuan agrees solemnly.

Wei Ying will combust. They’re both just so cute.

BI THE WEI @weiwuxian

I would like you all to know that @hanguangjun is the love of my life, the light of my days, my beautiful talented future husband, the father of my son and my fated one.
