I know, I am (more or less) fashionably late, but nonetheless - happy birthday, Zewu Jun!
I was browsing through the MDZS/CQL elves that I drew way back when for @perkynurples 's Mirkwood AU (← that's the tag, btw), and I came across Lan Xichen and was like "Poor guy. You really did him dirty with that stiff pose, huh? Let's try that again, shall we?"
Hence this. He is very deer to me (get it? Deer? 🦌)
It's been ages since I drew a deer, or a deer-like creature really, so please forgive me any inconsistencies and anatomical weirdnesses,
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.
