“Alcohol is forbidden in the Cloud Recesses”
The Duality of Ghost General Wen Ning 🙈💗
I finally made this after it’s been stuck in my head for a month. I hope you all like it! Its intense!
Daily anniversary, weekly anniversary, monthly anniversary and yearly anniversary.
Heck, they’ll even have an anniversary for the exact time of their confession.
I don’t know shit about shit but google tells me red orchids symbolize passion and desire as well as strength and courage and that camera sure is panning hard around some when Lan Wangji is playing for recovering Wei Wuxian.

Made a lil comic for my favorite couple
So, because I’m a nice person, I decided to combine both prompts into one little story! I really hope you like it. I think it’s really cute.
#3 “All I want to do is lie next to you” & #4 “Will you brush my hair?”
It was early in the morning, around 5:00, when Lan Xichen promptly awoke, like the good Gusu Lan clan member that he was. As he let out a yawn and made to sit up, he found himself being stopped by something heavy across his mid-section, so he looked down to see Jiang Cheng, with his long dark brown hair covering his face, snoring softly as he had his arm draped over Lan Xichen’s stomach. Lan Xichen smiled fondly and reached out, brushing Jiang Cheng’s hair out of his face to reveal the peaceful sleeping face that only Lan Xichen was allowed to see. Lan Xichen felt some sort of pride in that fact; that only he was allowed to see the frown lines and other harsh lines of reality soften and disappear as Jiang Cheng fell into slumber. He stared at Jiang Cheng for a few more moments, storing the image of Jiang Cheng’s sleeping face to his memory, before he carefully reached out and removed Jiang Cheng’s arm from his mid-section, allowing him to completely sit up and slip out of the bed. Well…almost. The moment he was almost out of bed, he felt a hand grasp his wrist, so he turned to see Jiang Cheng staring sleepily at him.
“Huan…why the hell are you up so damn early?” he grumbled as he lifted his head to look at Lan Xichen, revealing a rather terrible case of bedhead. Lan Xichen looked at Jiang Cheng’s hair and chuckled softly before he looked at Jiang Cheng.
“It’s just a Lan thing, Wanyin. You should know this; we rise at five and rest at nine. It’s just ingrained in us” he explained softly, since he knew Jiang Cheng was still sleepy. Jiang Cheng huffed.
“Well, we’re not in the Cloud Recesses anymore, Huan, we’re in Lotus Pier. And here, we sleep in. So get your ass back in this bed and go back to sleep” Jiang Cheng sleepily ordered. Lan Xichen gave him a fond look before he shook his head.
“Wanyin, I’m already up. I won’t be able to fall back asleep—” he started.
“All I want to do is lie next to you this morning and not think about the world. Is that too much to ask?” Jiang Cheng asked softly, looking at Lan Xichen with almost pleading eyes. Lan Xichen couldn’t say no to Jiang Cheng when his voice was that vulnerable, so he just sighed softly and climbed back into bed, laying down next to Jiang Cheng, who immediately draped his arm over his mid-section and made himself comfortable.
“I never knew you to be so clingy, Wanyin” Lan Xichen murmured as he looked over at his partner. Jiang Cheng huffed and rolled his eyes.
“You’re just warm, that’s all” he murmured. Lan Xichen was the one to roll his eyes this time before he turned over onto his side, wrapping his own arm over Jiang Cheng, pulling him close.
“Go back to sleep, Wanyin. I’ll be here” he murmured. Jiang Cheng hummed and tucked his head under Lan Xichen’s chin, shutting his tired eyes, easily falling back to sleep. As Lan Xichen listened to Jiang Cheng’s steady breathing, he felt his eyes grow heavy and soon he too fell back asleep, both men curled around each other.
Meanwhile, in another hanshi, Lan Wangji, Wei Wuxian, and Lan Sizhui were waking up and getting ready for the day. Lan Wangji and Lan Sizhui were the first ones to wake up, just like Lan Xichen, at 5:00 o’clock on the dot. They then brushed their teeth, washed their faces, and got dressed in their Lan robes. While they were getting dressed, Wei Wuxian slowly woke up and sat up, revealing a case of bedhead worse than Jiang Cheng’s, yawning as he looked at Lan Wangji and Lan Sizhui.
“Of course you two are already up” he grumbled. Lan Sizhui looked over at him and beamed.
“Mother! Good morning!” he greeted. Wei Wuxian’s grumpy demeanor melted away as he smiled at his son.
“Good morning A-Yuan” he replied. Lan Sizhui then lowered his eyes, a small blush on his cheeks, before he looked up at Wei Wuxian.
“Um, Mother…do you think you could brush my hair and style it like yours?” he asked. Wei Wuxian smiled fondly and nodded.
“Of course. Just let me brush my teeth and wash my face and I’ll do it” he stated as he slipped out of bed and headed to the bathroom, quickly brushing his teeth before he washed his face. Once his morning routine was done, he walked back out into the bedroom and walked over to the bed, sitting down in the middle.
“Alright, A-Yuan. Hop up here” he instructed as he patted the place before him. Lan Sizhui grinned brightly and rushed over to the bed, hopping on the bed with a brush, his forehead ribbon, his decorative hair cover, and other ribbon in his hand. He then handed all the hair items to Wei Wuxian before he turned and sat before him, an exited grin on his face. Wei Wuxian chuckled softly as he took the hairbrush and began to brush Lan Sizhui’s hair, making sure that all the tangles and knots were out before he placed the hairbrush down and placed his thumbs on either side of Lan Sizhui’s head, gently guiding them back until they touched, using one hand to grab the parted hair while using the other hand to pull away the other hair that wasn’t needed in the ponytail. He then picked up the hairbrush and brushed the parted hair up into a high ponytail, tying it with a small black rubber band. He then placed a finger underneath the bend of the ponytail and folded the hair over it, creating a small loop bun. He slipped his finger out of the bun and took another small rubber band, securing the bun in place before he wrapped the rest of the ponytail around it, hiding the rubber band. After he had hidden the rubber band, he took another rubber band and tied it around, making sure to hide it with Lan Sizhui’s hair. Once the bun was complete, Wei Wuxian picked up the decorative hair ornament and placed it over the bun, making sure that it was secure before he picked up the sacred forehead ribbon of the Lan Clan and placed it on his son’s head.
“Make sure it’s straight” he instructed. Lan Sizhui nodded slightly, reaching up to touch the little decorative metal that was in the middle of the ribbon, making sure that it was straight, before he nodded again.
“It’s straight” he assured. Wei Wuxian smiled and quickly tied the ribbon securely so that it wouldn’t fall down before he clapped Lan Sizhui on the shoulders.
“There, all done!” he declared. Lan Sizhui grinned before he looked over at Lan Wangji.
“What do you think, Father? Did Mother do a good job?” he asked. Lan Wangji, who was watching Wei Wuxian do their son’s hair with fond eyes, nodded.
“He did an excellent job” he replied. Lan Sizhui smiled and turned to look back at Wei Wuxian.
“Thank you, Mother” he thanked. Wei Wuxian nodded.
“You’re welcome, A-Yuan” he replied.
“Now it’s your turn” Lan Wangji called out, making Wei Wuxian look over at him.
“What?” he asked. Lan Sizhui smiled as he held up a long red ribbon and black rubber band.
“We’re gonna do your hair now, Mother” he explained. Wei Wuxian blinked before he smiled.
“Okay” he replied. Lan Wangji then walked over to the bed and got behind Wei Wuxian, picking up the hairbrush before he began to brush Wei Wuxian’s hair. Wei Wuxian hissed and whined as Lan Wangji brushed his hair, mainly because his hair had so many tangles in it from moving in the night.
“Hush Wei Ying” Lan Wangji soothed as he continued to brush his partner’s hair, making sure that it was silky and smooth. Once all the knots were out and his hair was smooth, Lan Sizhui turned around and took the two strands that normally framed his father’s face and held them away from his face so that Lan Wangji could pull Wei Wuxian’s hair up into a high half-ponytail without taking those pieces with the rest of the hair. Lan Wangji then tied the ponytail in a black rubber band before tying the red ribbon around it to cover the rubber band.
“You can let go of his hair now, A-Yuan” he stated, looking at his son. Lan Sizhui let go of the two strands of hair, allowing them to fall and naturally frame Wei Wuxian’s face. After they were done, Wei Wuxian looked between the two of them.
“Well? How do I look?” he asked, a smile in his eyes. Lan Wangji smiled fondly.
“Like Wei Ying; beautiful” he replied. Lan Sizhui made a face before he chuckled.
“You look like my mother” he added. Wei Wuxian smiled as he reached out and pulled both Lan Wangji and Lan Sizhui in for a hug.
“Ah, thank you both for making me look so handsome” he cooed. The tips of Lan Wangji’s ears turned pink and Lan Sizhui let out a whine.
“Mother!” he whined. Wei Wuxian laughed as he gave them another squeeze.
“I love you both so much!” he declared. Lan Wangji and Lan Sizhui both returned Wei Wuxian’s hug, Lan Wangji placing a kiss to Wei Wuxian’s forehead while Lan Sizhui buried his face in Wei Wuxian’s neck.
“We love you too” they replied.
Second lead syndrome! Wei WuXians mind screamed over and over as Lan Wangji walked toward him.
Getting shot in the back of the head was only surprising in that it was a shot to the back of the head. Guns were expensive and heavily restricted in China. He would have thought it would be a knife.
Waking up on dirt street straight out of a historical novel had been really surprising.
That the expected knife in the back and mugging for the pretty ornaments in his hair and the fine silk clothes he was wearing was just a return to normal.
Patch himself up, find a good corner and smile, smile, smile until someone in clean, warm clothes felt generous. If he hadn’t had expericence living on the streets in his past life, he would have died that first week with nothing but grubby underclothes and no money for medicine for the stab wound.
As it was, he scrapped by one year, than another no thanks to the eternal vileness of dogs and finally lasted four before he got the shock of his life when someone called out his name “Wei Ying?”
He’d thought he might have simply transmigrated to the past until he realized it was Jiang Fengmian offering him melon and picking him up.
A few days later, as warm and fed as the people he’d been begging for scraps the day before, Wei WuXian confirmed it as the entered Lotus Pier.
He had transmigrated into the novel Golden Lotus Maiden! As a throwaway character that was supposed to die tragically offscreen and be a sad note for the protagonist to bond with her father on when the found out. He wouldn’t have remembered little Wei Ying if they hadn’t shared a name.
A refreshing take on the XianXia genre, Golden Lotus Maiden had been set in the high fantasy world of cultivators and ghost, but focused on an underdog maiden’s struggles to support her family and win the love of her life. An unfailingly kind, filial girl with a spine of steel that only came to bear when someone she loved was threatened.
The novel had been widely panned for having an excellent story and plot in the background and so many haters had barraged the author and demanded the story hinted be written instead that they’d written a tragic ending in spite.
Fools. All of them. Jiang Yanli was the greatest heroine ever written and dying of heartbreak because she was told her child was assassinated, when really he wasn’t, and leaving her husband a widow was bullshit. The Jiang Yanli he’d followed for five books would have pushed up her sleeves and taken revenge! No way she would just drop dead!
From the first moment he’d set eyes on Jiang Yanli, Wei WuXian had devoted himself wholly to getting her a proper happy ending with her Jin ZiXuan and a full life raising her Jin Ling. Reading from her point of view in the novel, he hadn’t thought he could love her more, but being gently pampered by his Shijie, eating the heavenly soup she made just for him, and feeling himself also brighten like a flower leaning toward the sun as everyone who knew her did, Wei WuXian decided she was the most wonderful Shijie that ever existed.
Of course, he hadn’t forgotten about that one-off, semi romance with Lan Wangji.
The kind, righteous foil to Jin ZiXuan’s cold reluctance; Jiang Yanli had not been able to entirely resist his beauty and kind gestures and started to fall for him, but Lan Wangji was revealed to be as frigid on the inside as Jin ZiXuan feigned on the outside and never developed feelings for her. Wei WuXian had alternated raging and praising Lan Wangji for his sensitive rejection of Jiang Yanli.
What fool of a man would turn down Jiang Yanli? But oh, how dashing and heartfelt he was! And a lovely subversion of the jealous love triangle. They even remained friends and Lan Wangji came to her aid so many times in the future that he eventually forgave him for the rejection. Even when rumors of their relationship being a romance made a hurdle for Jin ZiXuan. Lan Wangji was definitely his second favorite character.
So. He’d expected an incomparably righteous and handsome man.
The big beauty walking down the path made his brain short-circuit.
SECOND LEAD SYNDROME!!!!!
Every passage in the novel praising his looks flashed through Wei WuXian’s mind and not a word of it was adequate to describe Lan Wangji’s flawless skin, his molten gold eyes, the black of his hair or the perfect, shimmering drape of his robes.
“A-Xian?” Jiang Yanli rested a dainty hand on his arm with a concerned look.
“Shijie…he’s so gorgeous I’m gonna die!”
From the way Lan Wangji froze between one step and another as he made his way through the arched entrance to the Cloud Recesses, that either hadn’t been quiet enough or Lan Wangji’s hearing was better than he thought.
Beside him Jiang Cheng let out that groan he only did when he rolled his eyes so hard Wei WuXian could only see the whites of them. Also their shidi broke into a ripple of sniggering. So. he’d just been loud. Lan Wangji half-turned to look back at him incredulously and Wei WuXian found himself whimpering when confronted with that face again.
“Second Master Lan,” Jiang Cheng stepped expertly forward to prevent Wei WuXian from blurting out something else. “We’re students from Yunmeng Jiang, come for the lecture,” he bowed and waited for Lan Wangji to bow in return, then made a sheepish gesture toward the other Jiang disciples that Wei WuXian already knew wouldn’t work. Lan Wangji was an intense stickler for rules. “We’ve lost our pass, would you please be lenient and let us in?”
Sure enough, after a brief pause, Lan Wangji spoke in a deep, smooth voice Wei WuXian could listen to all day, “No invitation, no admission.”
Shaking off the high of Lan Wangji’s everything, Wei WuXian shoved forward in Jiang Cheng’s stunned silence and found his words. This was his fault; in the original novel the invitation hadn’t been lost. It was his job to get them through the door to make up for it!
He gets silenced for his efforts.
He was maybe a little too flirtatious.
Just a little.
It couldn’t be helped! Lan Wangji was unfairly pretty and Wei WuXian was a consummate appreciator of true beauty. Hence his undying devotion to Jiang Yanli. And this was his second favorite person in the whole world! Somehow more beautiful than any imagining or poetry could convey!
It really was too bad Lan Wangji didn’t have a lover by the end of the novel. He really should have.
Such a sweet and noble man, with a clear streak of romance from how taken he was with the tenants of true love he later revealed were the reason he couldn’t give Jiang Yanli’s feelings a chance. One true love you would know deep to your bones was the only love of your life from the time you meet them. A love he would wait lifetimes for if needed, but he would gladly pause help Jiang Yanli in her every effort to find her own.
What a man! Wei WuXian’s heart had pounded so hard so many times Lan Wangji had spoken. So tragic that he never had any love interest at all.
On the way back down to Caiyi town, Wei WuXian came to a slow epiphany.
Lan Wangji wasn’t destined for Jiang Yanli.
In fact, the whole temporary onesided infatuation didn’t really have to happen at all. They were both in Cloud Recesses. Lan Wangji and Jiang Yanli could become allied for some other reason and still have all the important notes play out the same. Wei WuXian had already changed so many things in this world. Even a lost invitation might lead to something new and exciting. What was a few more changes?
With a skip in his step, Wei WuXian decided to buy some Emperor’s Smile. A good, thinking drink for brainstorming how he would secure Lan Wangji a true love so that both of his favorite characters would have a happy ending!
But what maiden would be worthy of him? Hmmmmm…. A true love known at first meeting…it would have to be someone he hadn’t met in the novel. Through outraging Jin ZiXuan for a second, or maybe eight time today in his search of the hotel, Wei WuXian mussed and strained his poor memory for details.
Wait! he thought as a name swam up for the pretty face scolding him for bothering her young master came back to him. MianMian! Had Lan Wangji ever properly met her in the novel? She was here and would be in the Cloud Recesses, but he didn’t think they’d spoken. Maybe she was his true love?
Invitationless, but laden with wine that would hopefully mollify a couple of his shidi, Wei WuXian hurried back up the mountain with a new plan to make friends with Lan Wangji and secure him a happy love story.
ran into the phrase second male lead syndrome in the comments section of Youtube and had this stupid idea of transmigrator Wei WuXian and Lan Wangji as the more attractive second lead that doesn’t get picked.
Modern college AU where Wei Wuxian is roommates with Wen Ning (local freshman) and Wen Qing (older, in her second year of residency at a hospital, worried about baby bro now that she’s home less, needed to find a friend for him to hang out with, but now she’s worried about both of them lol) and all of them combined have like 352¥ total and they’ve eaten ramen like ten times this week. Then they all get a fast forward into immediate parenthood when one of their asshole relatives drops off little toddler A-Yuan at their apartment and just… doesn’t come back for him. Y’all they dying they can’t feed this baby ramen for every meal plz.
But then life rapidly changes when Lan Wangji (who Wei Wuxian shockingly has like 78% of his classes with and has been flirting with WWX for since they were like 15) hears that they have a kid now and he’s all ‘hmmmmm… i should set him and Jingyi up on a play date to get WWX’s attention…’ and so he does (it’s some kid of a cousin or something but the closest in age child in their main house rn) and he gets a good look at the apartment they’re all crammed into and he’s all ‘ooooooof that’s bad’ and then impulsively asks them all to move in with him and his brother (the only ones that stay in the main house year round other than Jingyi and their uncle) and now it’s all of them suddenly adjusting to having food that’s not noodles and not one, but TWO reliable caregivers to leave the babies with when they’re out and WWX is still a fucking idiot who hasn’t realized LWJ basically just asked him to marry him but they hang out more now and sometimes WWX passes out in LWJ’s room after studying too long and like honestly???? It’s lit.
