At Qinghe during the Sunshot Campaign--
Nie Huaisang: Oh there you are Wei-xiong. Jiang-zonghzu's been looking for you.Why are you in this secluded corner though? Are you avoiding Lan Wangji again? *snaps fan and looks over it disapprovingly*
Wei Wuxian:Don't look at me like that Huaisang, I have to avoid him now for both our sakes. He doesn't exactly approve of my new method of cultivation.
Nie Huaisang: He doesn’t approve of anything about you. But when you laugh, he perks up like a tulip in fresh water.
Wei Wuxian *snorts*: Lan Wangji, the tulip.
Nie Huaisang: The big, brooding, blue tulip

I just thought of something : when Xichen mentions that Wei Ying’s temperament has changed a lot.
In my opinion, he’s also become so SICK of everyone’s bullshit that he’s like “FUCK THIS TIME TO TELL THE TRUTH TO EVERYONE’S FACE BECAUSE I CAN’T BE BOTHERED TO BE ‘politically correct’ ANYMORE”. I don’t know if this makes any sense, but considering how he really dislikes injustice and people blatantly lying to his face and trying to twist his words and actions, I do understand that at some point, he already knew what Wen Qing said about him being the chosen villain. And then thought “well, since i’m such a villain, i might as well just throw the thruth in everyone’s face and not give a shit.”
They dislike the way he tells the truth. But he’s done sugarcoating things, and he actually NEVER has sugarcoated his words I believe, especially when calling out someone’s actiong when they were obviously wrong. I would also be done with everyone if they kept twisting my actions and words to make me fit into that villain the want me to be. “you want me to be the villain? okay i’ll give you a good reason to call me that” kinda. also he even more or less tried to tell people he CANNOT wear his sword anymore when he said “have you ever wondered why I wasn’t carrying it?”
no one actually gave a shit, but it was a small detail that was easy to use against him.
