Writing a fic where WWX still dies but none of the Wens or Jin Ling’s parents (meaning he probably died a while before… and also JZX and JYL are in charge of the Jin sect and also MY just straight up never left Nie sect, he’s their kept boytoy) and Lan Wangji still adopts A-Yuan. So. When WWX comes back to life (in a body that still turns out to be JGS’s kid but isn’t MXY because plz let JL have his crazy uncle and also i want JC to adopt MXY and be a super protective parent to him lol this fic is 100% self serving deal with it) it still goes fairly the same as canon with Dafan mountain and WWX calling WN to save the kids. But. Since none of the Wens died. And Lan Wangji is all about family now days. Lan Sizhui knows his family. And as soon as the adults give the all clear that things are safe again. He goes straight for Wen Ning and hugs him.
WWX is very confused. Maybe random Lan baby got attached to his soft ghost???? Sure. He can accept that. In fact, it’s exactly what Wen Ning deserves, is to have a gaggle of teens ready to give him hugs whenever possible. That’s perfect. Thank you, random Lan child.
But then!!! Wen Ning!!!!!! Calls him A-Yuan!!!!!!!!
AND WWX JUST IMMEDIATELY DROPS THE CRAZY ACT AND STARTS CRYING BECAUSE THATS HIS BABY??? THATS HIS A-YUAN THAT HE JUST FUCKING LOST LIKE OUCH THATS HIS BABY???? LAN ZHAN YOU STOLE HIS BABY???????
He be sobbing all over and cuddling the confused (but accepting) Lan Sizhui while Wen Ning is all ‘oh??? Did we not know that was Wei Wuxian???? Cause I knew as soon as I saw him’ and now Jiang Cheng is SOBBING and trying to cuddle WWX in the same way WWX is holding LSZ and JL is super embarrassed at his uncles and trying to hide with MXY who’s just straight up confused by everything and WWX’s convo (him yelling and LWJ shrugging) with LWJ basically amounts to:
WWX: YOU STOLE MY BABY????
LWJ: I mean. Not like you was usin it anymore 🤷♀️
