#The Untamed

This was such a heart-fluttering moment the first time I watched this!!

This is Lan Wangji crossing a line. Before, all he could do was listen and offer counsel. Indeed, that’s all Wei Wuxian permitted him to do – remember how coldly Wei Wuxian spurned his exhortation to go back to Gusu in Episode 20 – but Wei Wuxian has opened the door, through this conversation, and Lan Wangji of course is eager to walk through it. Now, he says, he wants to take an active part in helping. It’s not clear what form that help will take, but the important part is that he asks, and that after a moment of thought, Wei Wuxian answers in the affirmative. It’s a statement of trust, that “okay,” and they both feel a bit lighter knowing they’re not in this totally alone.

However, I do think that Wei Wuxian is indulging Lan Wangji a bit here. He’s still not told him the biggest secret, and doesn’t plan to. But he knows Lan Wangji is persistent, and allowing him a limited role will hopefully satisfy him until he gains the confidence that Wei Wuxian is truly in control of his power. So that “okay” is half truth, half falsehood. As long as he’s keeping that secret, that’s the best he can do.

Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE me some “Wei Wuxian is LAN Wanji’s horrible fake date to a family gathering to piss them all off but then they fall in love for real!”, like that is a good trope right there, but please imagine:

Wei Wuxian is MIANMIAN’S fake date to piss off HER family because they are getting on her back about being bi and how she should settle down with a nice young man, and it’s pure platonic disaster bisexual solidarity.

There’s so much in the way he says “I know” here. He’s very deliberate about it. Lan Zhan, I know the risks. I know I’m gambling with my body and soul. Please understand through my expression and these few words that I have my reasons for pursuing it, and please don’t ask me any more.

Lan Wangji will not be able to leave it alone, though. He’s too tightly wound and too strictly brought up to be okay with things as they are. The doubts he expressed last episode are nascent. They have not fully formed, and he’s not able to let go of the structure of his entire life to just say “Okay, I believe you, we’re good.” Deep inside, Wei Wuxian knows that. But he has to at least try to make his point.

And now they’re looking into each other’s eyes and I’m ;_; and wasting my precious liveblog slots staring at them staring at each other. LOOK AT THEM connecting like they used to, even more than they used to perhaps. At this point in their relationship, both of them would use the word “friends.” Of course the feelings run a lot deeper than that, but even them both considering each other a friend is miles from where they started.

I don’t know the connotations in Chinese, but I always take this “crafty” word to mean “amoral.” There’s good cultivation (sitting right next to him), eeeeeevil cultivation (Xue Chonghai, the Wens), and then cultivation that’s neither here nor there, and that’s what Wei Wuxian is professing to practice.

It’s bullshit. In this universe there’s yang energy and there’s yin energy, and there’s no third kind of energy that’s neutral. But true or not, it’s a pretty clever way to package it.
