actually as tragic as post-canon Song Lan is, he's also insanely cool? like, we have a mute, undead swordsman dressed in all black, who carries two (2) swords, one of which belonged to his dead soulmate, ceaselessly roaming the earth to fight evil, bearing the souls of his companions. like the power that has, the sheer drama of it all...where is his MOVIE, where is his full scale xianxia FRANCHISE

You know what it’s devastating? That moment in CQL when Song Lan’s Fuxue almost reaches Xiao Xingchen’s hand but then falls at the very last second and then he dies. And his friend has no idea of what happened.
But then. You read the novel and realize that Song Lan couldn’t do it, not because he lost his strength at the last minute, but because he realized that he couldn’t bear to let Xiao Xingchen know and I’m just. So. Utterly. Devastated.

so most modern au content with these three has toddler a-qing + her dads and that’s FANTASTIC, don’t get me wrong, I love it, but... what about bratty pottymouth edgy “troubled” preteen a-qing + her dads???? 
so in my modern au, after growing up being fostered by baoshan sanren and lan yi, xingchen works with social services and builds a bond with “problem kid” a-qing, as they both have the same degenerative eye condition. he winds up fostering her, and they live with xue yang the three-legged Demon Cat. after a few years, song lan, xingchen’s One That Got Away ex, turns up and they sort out their issues and wind up getting back together. a-qing would never voice it but does high-key believe that now xingchen has song lan back he doesn’t “need” her anymore and is going to abandon her, and when she starts acting out in response to that anxiety xingchen realises what’s up, has a long and important conversation with song lan, and they wind up giving her something special for her birthday that year :) 
a-qing, absolutely not crying: I mean, like, technically I was here first, so it really should be song-daozhang that’s getting adopted
(also song lan would definitely be more articulate than I’ve drawn him but there aren’t that many videos on chinese sign language on youtube so I did my best, hopefully it makes sense ;_; I’m gonna be making something discussing song lan and xingchen’s disabilities soon if anyone’s curious! and no, I don’t really have a good reason why a-qing calls them daozhang in a modern au, I just feel like she’d take a while to be comfortable calling them anything like dad)

STOP hating on the Yi City arc characters.
Wei Wuxian is a GENIUS
Lan Wanji is PROTECTIVE
Lan Sizhui is KIND-HEARTED
Lan Jingyi is BRAVE
Ouyang Zizhen is OBSERVANT
Jin Ling is DETERMINED
A-Qing is CLEVER
Xue Yang
Xiao Xingchen is HELPFUL
Song Zichen is STRONG
Wen Ning is LOYAL

been a lot of “modern AU where song lan and xiao xingchen raise a-qing together and they’re all happy forever the end” fics turning up recently, and I have to say... I’m a big fucking fan. I will read every single one, keep ‘em coming folks. the best ones keep xingchen’s blindness, with extra bonus points for song lan’s (book canon) mysophobia.
...also I literally just realised, typing this, that this is literally just the modern au version of this, so like. please ignore my complete lack of originality and creativity and just bask in the fluff okay.

“Xiao XingChen, the bright moon, the gentle breeze; Song ZiChen, the distant snow, the bitter frost… I wonder if the two of them would be able to meet each other again. […] Lan WangJi and Wei WuXian led the group of disciples out of the deserted city. In front of the city gates, Song Lan parted with them. He still wore the dark cultivation robes. Standing alone, he carried two swords, Shuanghua and Fuxue, he brought two souls, Xiao XingChen and A-Qing, and walked another path. Not the one that led them to Yi City.”
- Chapter 42: Grasses - Part Ten, Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation (Chinese: 魔道祖师; pinyin: Mó Dào Zǔ Shī) by Mo Xiang Tong Xiu.

Xiao Xingchen + Song Zichen and their relationship with class and reputation though. They’re both outsiders, not born into the established system of cultivational families, not allied with any major sects (in a world of noble families, Yi City is just four orphans destroying each other body and soul).
They have a level of prestige despite this. People associate them with poetry couplets and justice. Yet they’re quickly forgotten, quickly discarded. No one goes looking for them or protects them. They’re interlopers in every way, and while that status earned them renown when they were arresting murderers that other cultivators protected, it doesn’t shelter them from their ultimate fate.
In a lot of ways it’s their humility and lack of political ties that make them so admirable, they aren’t compromised or limited. Jin Guangyao’s pragmatic arguments and political maneuvering don’t work on them. And yet that cuts both ways.
Xingchen comes across as someone with only a passing grasp of societal norms. He acts in socially acceptable ways because he was raised to be reserved and moral, but he lacks any sense of self-conciousness. He’ll hand all his money to a street kid, he’ll call out a sect leader for crimes, he’ll cry and laugh and let himself get scammed. He has no face, it’s all raw and honest. Who is he going to embarrass, his teacher who lives on a mountain?
Song Zichen is a little more worldly, he has his temple to think of, has people his actions reflect on. He knows what it means to be looked down on, in a way his friend (who has the reputation boost of being an Immortal’s ward and a special obliviousness) doesn’t. He knows how to tilt his head so Xiao Xingchen knows to pull it back when they’re faced with a corrupt leader. He knows how to mind his tongue. Together they’re very attractive, the stuff of stories.
And yet... no one defends them, in the end. No one really questions if Xiao Xingchen, noble and soft spoken but forward, would kill a witness in a murder investigation. No one bothers to get answers about the fate of Song Lan’s temple. They’re left as mysteries for over a decade. They’re two nobodies who came from nowhere and did admirable work, and the admiration they earn doesn’t translate into the protections a member of a formal sect would have. No wonder they wanted to build a new system, the existing one was clearly already leaving them out.
