The forehead ribbon of the Gusu Lan Sect means to “regulate oneself”... And the founder of the Gusu Lan Sect, Lan An, had said that one can only let go of all regulations when they are with the one they love and cherish.... [the] forehead ribbon is a special object that is very, very personal and sensitive. One cannot easily give another permission to touch it, one cannot take it off as they please, and one absolutely cannot tie it on someone else. It is prohibited.

Back then, during the first siege of Burial Mound, Jin Guangshan led the Lanling Jin Sect, while Jiang Cheng led the Yunmeng Jiang Sect; Lan Qiren led the Gusu Lan Sect, while Nie Mingjue led the Quinghe Nie Sect. The former two were the main forces, the latter could’ve gone without. Now, the Lanling Jin Sect’s leader hadn’t arrived at Burial Mound, having only sent people for the Gusu Lan Sect to command; with the Gusu Lan Sect still led by Lan Qiren. Nie Huaisang replaced his brother’s position, shrunken within the crowd, his face still full of ‘I don’t know about anything’, ‘I don’t want to do anything’, and ‘I’m just here for the numbers’. Only Jiang Cheng was still the one surrounded by hostile energy, face insidious, staring straight at him. But... Wei Wuxian looked slightly to the side. He saw Lan Wangji, who stood beside him, without any of hesitation, any thought of withdrawing. But, this time, he wasn’t alone anymore.
