WEI WUXIAN PUT PORN IN LAN ZHAN’S BOOK I AM SCREAMING
just a little juniors scribble because

“I don’t think he’s a lunatic,” Sizhui says reluctantly, when it’s become clear the other disciples aren’t going to stop gossiping for propriety’s sake.
He’s not about to admit it aloud, but he’s curious, too. Ever since they met Master Mo at the manor, he’s been full of surprises — startlingly astute observations followed by wailing disruptions — and Sizhui’s not sure what to make of it. He tries to ignore gossip like the disciplines instruct, but enough has slipped through that he recognized the name Mo Xuanyu and the implications that came with it. In person, though, Master Mo hasn’t fit the rumors very well.
“Did you see the way he was leaning on Hanguang-jun?” Jingyi demands, twisting around to catch Sizhui’s eye.
The implicit he must be crazy doesn’t really need spelled out. Sizhui had, of course. More importantly, perhaps, he’d seen the way his father reacted to it; not with a cutting glare and unsheathed Bichen but with a gentle sidestep and a look that was nearly as fond as annoyed. It had been…unsettling.
Musing on an AU idea for The Untamed. Can I get your opinions?
What crests would the main cast have? Kind of like in Digimon.
Lan WangJi: Crest of Love (because…)
Wei WuXian: Haven’t figured his out yet… Maybe Crest of Chivalry or Intelligence? Cunning?
Jin Zixuan: Crest of Kindness (I want to hope he finds it in his heart to put aside his arrogance)
Jin Guandyao: Crest of Sincerity (If he were loved early on, he wouldn’t have a reason to use his underhanded tricks to get what he wants. He COULD have a happy ending if he were only given the chance. So much potential wasted on survival.)
Nie Huaisang: Crest of Courage (he stands up to his brother to stop cultivating with the blade to save him and their lineage)
Wen Ning: Crest of Reliability (because you can always count on this adorable boy to kick some major ass) or Crest of Friendship (He deserves many friends)
Jiang Cheng: Crest of Hope or Determination (boy never gives up, always puts in his all)
What do you think?
episode 32 got me crying at 3am
Fandom: MZDS / Pairing: WangXian / Rating: G / WC: 2628
About halfway through the morning session, a well-respected senior cultivator from one of the larger clans snapped and told Sect Leader Yao, very bluntly, to shut his mouth since nothing of any use was coming out of it.
To Jin Ling’s immense relief, Sect Leader Yao had responded by leaping to his feet, spilling the contents of his table as he’d loudly announced that he was going back to his rooms in Gusu until he received a formal apology. He’d then stormed out of the conference room, robes fluttering at his heels.
Jin Ling had to admit it had been a good exit.
But his relief, and the relief of almost everyone else in the room, hadn’t lasted long.
“Well, I- I’m just not sure…” Sect Leader Ouyang’s voice quavered a little as he shot a desperate look at the door Sect Leader Yao had disappeared through.
me, a notorious hyperfixater who has never once had an ounce of chill in my life: okay, i guess i’ll try out this show The Untamed. i’ve heard some good things abt it so it probably won’t be too bad, but i’m not gonna make it a big deal
also me, like 5 minutes into episode 1:
Well, we may never get a silvergifting adaptation, but at least we have Xue Yang simultaneously sobbing, hysterically laughing, and threatening Xiao Xingchen’s embalmed corpse.
Xue Yang is such a fascinating character to me cuz he’s almost at a Wei Ying level of involved in stuff
Except Wei Ying doesn’t want to be the center of bad stuff happening while Xue Yang thrives on it
And somehow he’s always around and always profits
Looking for the Yin Iron shards? Xue Yang knows where they are and has power over Wen Ruohan because of it
Getting captured? Xue Yang makes a powerful friend
The Wen attack the Unclean Realm? Xue Yang goes free
There’s a flashback to some crime committed that doesn’t have anything to do with his subplot? Xue Yang is there
The Stygian Tiger Amulet is destroyed? Xue Yang has it
Xue Yang is dead? Fuck it, he’s talked about
He’s almost at a comical level of evil, except he’s so good at it that it comes right back around to impressive. He’s a teenager in the beginning and already has his fingers in every evil pie in the cultivation world, sasses off to several very dangerous people and never loses his smirk doing it
And even if things don’t seem to go his way, he still somehow comes out on top in the end
The only time he doesn’t is when he’s literally too far gone to distinguish between caring for someone and hating him, but at this point it’s just tragically ironic
Except he doesn’t fail completely
Cuz somehow, despite losing everything, he still died with at least the memory of getting exactly what he wanted as a child (and getting exactly what he subconsciously longed for after Xiao Xingchen died; to die as atonement).
Somehow, no matter how much trouble he’s in, no matter how many people have their eye on him, no matter how much he fucks himself over with his actions…he still somehow always manages to get the last laugh in
And I find that incredibly entertaining to watch
Who are you bowing to Lan Wangji because it sure looks like Wei Wuxian
[So the Chang sect is super dead and Xue Yang makes his appearance…followed by Xiao Xingchen!!! I got excited because he is CUTE Y’ALL. He’s been on Xue Yang’s tail for half a month now. They fight, aided by Wei Wuxian, and Song Lan shows up as well.
Everyone makes their introductions and they search Xue Yang for the Yin metal, but they come up empty. As they search the compound, we also learn that Xue Yang has a personal grudge against the Chang sect (details are not revealed). Nie Huaisang then shows up with Jin Guangyao and some Nie sect members, and requests Lan Wangji’s presence at the Nie residence. It’s decided that they will part ways with XXC and SL, and the crew will bring Xue Yang back to the Nie sect for sentencing. Wei Wuxian learns that Xiao Xingchen’s master is also BSSR, but unfortunately, he doesn’t know anything about Wei Wuxian’s mother either as it was before his time.]
Differences from the novel:
- This sort of happens…but we learn of this in story form told by Lan Wangji? They track down the Chang sect in the present and Xiao Xingchen and Song Lan are both dead in the novel at this point. Xiao Xingchen had left BSSR’s tutelage about a year after Wei Wuxian’s death, and made a name for himself shortly after due to his prowess and willingness to help where help was needed. The Chang massacre happened around the same time, so Wei Wuxian (dead) and Lan Wangji (under house arrest) never met with them face-to-face while they were still alive.
- In Chapter 30, on their way to the Chang sect cemetery after the stopover at the tavern, we learn about Xue Yang’s story. He did indeed kill the Chang sect, but was then apprehended by Xiao Xingchen and handed over to the Jin sect, who did not want to prosecute Xue Yang because they learned he was in the process of learning how to replicate the Yin Hu Fu (the Yin tiger amulet/Stygian Tiger Amulet/whatever you want to call it), and the Jin sect wanted the tech for themselves. At this point, Nie Mingjue gets involved and demands Xue Yang’s execution in front of the other sects present, and so forces Jin Guangshan’s hand. He orders Xue Yang away to await execution (read: hidden in the dungeons), but then Nie Mingjue dies of qi deviation shortly after so they never see it through. How convenient *cough*.
- The Jin sect then forced the last remaining surviving heir of the Chang sect, Chang Ping, to recant his allegations against Xue Yang, so Xue Yang got out scot-free and proceeded to exact his revenge on Song Lan and Xiao Xingchen (story to be continued in Episode 30…something). Meanwhile, the Jin sect is now in control of a semi-workable Yin tiger amulet and we’ll see this in use later during the second siege at the Yiling burial mounds.
- Wei Wuxian and Lan Wangji then encounter a graverobber at the Chang sect cemetery (keep in mind that everyone from the Chang sect is dead and buried at this point, since the events took place over a decade ago) - it is NOT Xue Yang, it is Su She.
- In order to help Jin Guangyao, Su She was attempting to retrieve Nie Mingjue’s torso before the duo could get to it, but he was forced to flee when they arrived as he was no match for the two of them. He had cast a spell over his face and sword to prevent recognition, but Wei Wuxian makes an observation that the assailant was intimately familiar with the Lan sect duelling techniques, although he can’t quite make heads or tails of the information right now.
[They head to Bujing Shi and it’s here that we first learn the Wen sect has ordered all major sects to send an heir to attend classes - similar to the Lan sect… except it’s really just a way to hold the sect heirs hostage. Nie Mingjue shows up - have we talked about how on point the casting for this show is?? Both Wei Wuxian and Jin Guangyao convince Nie Mingjue to send Xue Yang to the dungeons for now until the matter has been investigated as opposed to executing him. Meanwhile, poor Jin Guangyao keeps getting humiliated - this time by the captain of the armed forces.
It’s hinted that Xue Yang might be connected to Xue Chonghai in some way. The task force decides that the Wen sect must already know about Xue Yang’s capture, and Lan Wangji is tasked with returning to Gusu with the Yin metal. At night, Wei Wuxian runs into Jin Guangyao near the dungeon (foreshadowing!) and hangs out on the rooftop at Lan Wangji’s residence as he leaves.]
Differences from the novel:
- Since the Chang sect investigation takes place in the present, they do not visit Bujing Shi after. In the novel flashback (Chapter 51), Wei Wuxian and Jiang Cheng first learn about the Wen indoctrination from Madam Yu while they are at Yunmeng.
- As discussed above, the Nie sect/Nie Mingjue was not the primary prosecutor for Xue Yang, it was the Jin sect.
- Xue Chonghai doesn’t exist in the novel, it was never hinted that Xue Yang had special familial or ancestral ties with anyone. He was just a street urchin - albeit a dangerously smart, highly sociopathic one.
[In the morning, the Wen sect shows up for Xue Yang and the Yin metal, led by Wen Chao. Wen Chao is all talk and “I’m going to eradicate you…” and then hides behind Wen Zhuliu when the fight breaks out. Xue Yang escapes in the chaos and Nie Mingjue arrives… just in time to see Jin Guangyao stab the captain in the stomach. Wen Zhuliu is right behind and Jin Guangyao blocks the sword for Nie Mingjue, who has already suffered some heavy blows and looks to be in a pretty bad state.
Wen Chao announces that an army is already on the way to sack the Cloud Recesses - uh oh. He lets them off, but warns that if this continues, Bujing Shi will face a similar outcome. Back at the main reception hall, Jin Guangyao prostrates himself in front of Nie Mingjue and asks for forgiveness. He killed the captain for being a petty, insulting, glory-thieving wank and swears he saw him let Xue Yang go. Nie Mingjue spares his life in exchange for him having saved his earlier, but tells him to leave the Nie sect from now on - his services are no longer required.]
Differences from the novel:
- The Wen sect does not brazenly attack the Nie sect in the novel. However, the Nie sect does have bad blood with the Wen sect as Wen Ruohan had tampered with Nie Mingjue father’s saber during a night hunt, causing his father to eventually pass away from his injuries after his sword broke while battling a beast during the hunt. (Chapter 49)
- Nie Mingjue does see Jin Guangyao stab a commander in the novel, however, this was during the Sunshot campaign. To back up a bit - Jin Guangyao first served under Nie Mingjue during the campaign, but upon learning that he desired his father (Jin Guangshan)’s approval, Nie Mingjue sent him away to the Jin sect with a personal recommendation. Jin Guangyao then served out the rest of the campaign at Langya, under the Jin sect. When Nie Mingjue encounters him again, he sees him killing his Jin sect commander and is enraged. Jin Guangyao basically says the same things in the novel (that the commander is a a petty, insulting, glory-thieving wank), and Nie Mingjue is like yeah, but premeditated murder is wrong so turn yourself in… only to watch Jin Guangyao stab himself in the stomach in an apparent act of suicide. Horrified, Nie Mingjue lets his guard down just enough for Jin Guangyao to freeze his qi and escape. (Chapter 48) He’s understandably even more angry at being tricked and I personally think this is when his relationship with Jin Guangyao really took a turn.
In the words of WuXian Wei’s cousin Gerard Way…. I’m not okay…..
I started watching The Untamed! I’m glad people wanted me that the first two episodes are confusing and the CGI is bad. I don’t think I’d be able to convince my husband to keep going if we hadn’t had those warnings, and I’m crap at watching shows by myself - especially now that it’s hard to watch anything during the day w my kid home.
But dang, that swell of romantic music when Lan Zhan (that’s his name right?) grabs Wei Wuxian’s arm - I thought the music when Crowley saves Aziraphale from the Nazis was obvious, I had no idea.
so im exactly five minutes and nine seconds into the untamed, seems kinda cool, think ill enjoy this
its actually been all over my tumblr for awhile so ill reblog when im at episode 2?
Every time I see gifs of Wang Yibo in full Lan Wangji costume but out of character, my immediate impression is “Wei Wuxian and Lan Wangji got hit by a bodyswap curse, and then Wei Wuxian got high.”
Quarantine: I’m going to lock you in ur house for an unimaginable length of time
so i had briefly heard talk of this, but only just officially researched and found out myself that the live action drama of the untamed was dubbed. i have been staring at the wall ever since. i don’t know if i’ve ever been more shocked and disturbed by anything else in my life.
