Fandoms: 陈情令 | The Untamed (TV)
22 Jul 2020
The innkeeper looked at them all, and then turned to Lan Wangji, clearly noting his robes, headpiece, and sword. “Chief Cultivator,” he said, stammering slightly. Lan Wangji didn’t sigh as he sheathed Bichen, but it was a near thing.
Jiang Wanyin scoffed as he watched. “Take us to his room,” he snapped at the innkeeper, and the man led the sect leaders and their first disciples to the room that had been Wei Wuxian’s.
The first thing Lan Wangji noticed was the red-black blood smeared on the floorboards, and then the black flute sitting in the centre of the room, innocuously still and plain.
(OR: Wei Wuxian is kidnapped. Somehow, this leads to Lan Wangji playing Chenqing, Jiang Wanyin revealing he thought they were already married, and a few love confessions.)
Wei Wuxian returns to Cloud Recesses.

Nie Mingjue never wanted to say goodbye.
Nie Huaisang never got to say goodbye.
One desperate choice leads to a thousand new ones.
(Or, the Nie brothers save the cultivation world [and themselves] through time travel, unlikely allies, and adopting far too many martial siblings.)
“Is everything in place?”
“Of course. The 2nd division is encircling the palace as we speak, and Fire Sage Saito is at hand.”
“Then it’s time to fetch the Fire Lord.”
Above the ceiling screen, Zuko stopped breathing. This wasn’t just a meeting. This was a coup. And he had to sneeze.
Things are changing in the Fire Nation. The war is over. Fire Lord Ozai is gone. His burned and banished teenage son is now in charge. And friends with the Avatar. And Fire Lord Zuko seems pretty intent on tearing down what the Fire Nation built over the past 100 years and building something new. Most of his governing council isn’t on board with that.
The palace guards just want to get him to the Peace Conference next month in one piece. And maybe convince him to stop disappearing at random times. It’s harder than it sounds.
Aka: Die Hard for firebenders
