this is probably going to be completely incoherent to everyone but me but:
wangxian mystic pop up bar au
i just started rewatching the show and wei wuxian could be weol- ju, lan zhan would be chief gwi, and a yuan would be kang- bae
maybe not the entire plot of the show, but like the found family dynamic with a side of romance as they help people resolve their grudges through dreams

image ID: meme of a car speeding off on a right turn with the road sign above it with one thick arrow pointing up and one thin arrow pointing to the right, representing the turn off the highway. The car is labeled "lan zhan" and the right arrow is labeled "dutifully collecting the kisses wei ying blows at you from the window while you were in the middle of teaching the juniors in class and putting them in your sleeve for later". The arrow pointing up is labeled "there is no other option."

Also a question about said episode: how much of wwx's behaviour at the reunion with lwj and jcw do you think can be attributed to how he deals with stress and trauma (stubborn, evasive, avoidant? I'll deal with all the other problems first and then look after myself (like when he's at wen qings house)) and how much is the demonic cultivation affecting his temperament? Do you think theres a version of this scene where he doesnt break lwj's heart but still manages not to go to gusu? (like, because the path didnt make him a little colder and crueler or more haunted?) Also i just realised this is the first time they meet since tortoise cave 😢
i think the first thing i would say about this scene is that wwx’s behaviour is very... practised. he’s had time to think about what he’s going to say here, exactly how he’s going to deflect. you can see him preparing to deal with lwj while he’s talking to jc. he takes a breath when he stands up to answer to him like a performer preparing to walk on stage.
wwx’s strategy here is specifically designed to be impossible for lwj to deal with. he’s more formal than he’s ever been, he opens with second young master lan... no, i should say hanguang-jun and a bow. he tells lwj that what he’s saying isn’t proper. wwx has always been the one to bridge the gap between them across boundaries of propriety. now he’s throwing those boundaries deliberately in lwj’s face, with a few casual lan zhans to keep him on his toes. how should others know my temperament and why should it be their concern? who do you think you are? who do you think you gusu lan clan are?
and the reason that strikes home is not just because this formality is an abrupt about-turn in wwx’s behaviour that lwj’s conversational ability isn’t equipped to deal with. (although it is also that. remember that the last time they met wwx was threatening to strip in front of him?) it’s because, as jc points out, wwx is technically right. lwj has exactly zero right to even be here, to have spent three months looking for him. who do you think you are? this is the line that sticks in lwj’s memory because no doubt others and he himself have been constantly questioning who he is to wwx to care so much. here is wwx answering this question, saying to his face that they are, in fact, nothing to each other. and it hurts! it’s a betrayal, a slap in the face, because wwx is the one who made him feel all that with all his confusing behaviour and now he’s the one saying it was all nothing.
all this is to say that wwx is not randomly lashing out here because of the trauma he’s undergone. he breaks lwj’s heart on purpose, as effectively as possible, with those little smiles to bait him into anger as he does so. it’s extremely targeted and intentional. to give credit to wwx here, i don’t think he knows how deep he’s cutting, because wwx simply doesn’t at this point realise how much lwj loves him. he doesn’t know he’s breaking his heart. but he is trying to have as much of an impact as possible. he wants lwj to hate him.
so why would he want that? i’d say it’s because he wants the break between them to be on his terms. he knows how lwj feels about demonic cultivation. he pushes him away here because he assumes that because of what he’s done, what he now is, he is inevitably repulsive to lwj. you see that on the rooftop at nightless city, where he says he’s always known this fight between them was coming. if wwx can make it his choice then he can keep some speck of control. and he’d rather lwj be angry at a performance than disgusted at what he really is

Lan Xichen: *pushes Lan Wangji* Quick! Go say " I love you."!
Lan Wangji: ???
Lan Wangji: *with his blank face* My brother loves me.
Wei Wuxian: I know we fight too much but Jiang Cheng loves me too. Lan Zhan, are you trying to break my heart? Do you hate me this much?
Jiang Cheng: Lan Wangji, know your place! You might dislike Wei Wuxian but you don't have the right to say these things.
Lan Wangji: *walks away with a blank face and a broken heart*
Jiang Cheng: He totally hates you.
Lan Xichen: *facepalms*

“Zewu Jun”, Wei Wuxian turned to him, avoiding HanGuang Jun’s eyes. “How come Lan Zhan hasn’t married yet?”
Lan Xichen’s eyes and mouth opened wide in astonishment, blinking several times. His regular peaceful expression crumbled, a hint of frustration in his face.
“What?” Asked Wei Wuxian, puzzled.
He frowned, pursing his lips.
“I will let you think that one yourself…” He finally said, taking the wine from Wei Wuxian’s side and pouring some for himself.
Wei Wuxian had only seen him drink once. He wondered what had triggered the sudden need to drink in him.

Five Times Lan Zhan (Kind Of) Proposed to Wei Ying
Oh, so you thought they wouldn’t be a disaster until the very end? Well, you thought wrong!
Find the earlier posts here.
By the time Wei Ying woke up the next morning, Lan Zhan had predictably been awake for some time and was ready to ‘reward’ Wei Ying for his help the previous night with a delicious breakfast. How Lan Zhan managed to get all this food ready without waking Wei Ying he had no idea, but he did appreciate the gesture, nonetheless.
As he said before, Lan Zhan and delicious food was the opposite of a hardship.
Wei Ying let himself be momentarily distracted by some tasty steamed buns, but it was superficially only. He knew that Mianmian had been right when she had told him to talk to Lan Zhan. Unfortunately.
“Lan Zhan,” he spoke up once he had finished his first steamed bun. “I think you need to be a little more careful. Do you remember what happened last night?”
Lan Zhan was quiet for a long time, and elected to stare down at the steamed bun in front of him rather than at Wei Ying.
“Did I cause trouble for Wei Ying?” he asked eventually, quietly.
So contrite! Wei Ying couldn’t handle it.
“Lan Zhan, Lan Zhan,” Wei Ying sighed. “If this is you causing trouble, then I really don’t want to know my own performance rating.”
He took a bite of a second steamed bun and chewed, thoughtful.
“Not gonna lie, it was pretty funny to see you get drunk the first few times. But now, I’m getting kind of worried, actually. It’s not like you, is what I’m thinking. Especially after that whole Jin Zixun debacle.”
He looked up and found Lan Zhan gazing at him, his eyes unreadable.
“Come on, Lan Zhan,” he wheedled. “Give me something to work with. Is this a late teenage rebellion? Do you need counselling? A fire and brimstone lecture that alcohol is bad for you? Don’t laugh! Lan Zhan, I’m trying to be serious here!”
But Lan Zhan only looked faintly amused with Wei Ying’s suggestions and didn’t reply.
Wei Ying pouted. He was trying to be helpful! Why was Lan Zhan suddenly uncooperative?
“Lan Zhaaaan,” he whined, and that brought Lan Zhan’s attention back to him, the amusement disappearing from his face.
“I am fine, Wei Ying,” he said. “I will stop attending parties if that is what you want.”
“I didn’t say you can’t come to parties!” Wei Ying exclaimed. “I just think we should keep you from getting drunk.”
He paused for one moment, considering.
“I think I just don’t like it when you do things and I have no idea what’s going on in your brain,” he eventually confessed. “It’s cute, don’t get me wrong, but –”
He fell silent, not sure how to tell Lan Zhan about the times when Lan Zhan had snuggled up to Wei Ying. Or gave him presents. Or told him he was going to marry Wei Ying before having his way with him.
“Lan Zhan, do you like me?” he asked abruptly.
Lan Zhan looked a little confused at the sudden question, but he nodded his head and hummed in agreement.
Wei Ying felt himself blush. Of course he’d known that Lan Zhan must like him a little bit, but it was very different to hear it confirmed by a Lan Zhan that was completely sober.
“I like you too, Lan Zhan, just so we’re clear,” he assured his friend. “More than Jiang Cheng, actually, but don’t tell him that. He’ll be sooo mad.”
He smiled, remembering the first time he had said the same thing to a drunk Lan Zhan.
“And you, Lan Zhan?” he teased. “Do you like me more than… rabbits?”
He didn’t ask if Lan Zhan liked him more than Lan Huan, because he wasn’t quite that hubristic.
Lan Zhan’s eyes strayed towards the little rabbit plush toy on his nightstand.
“Hn,” he eventually agreed.
“Ayooo,” Wei Ying exclaimed. “I’m above rabbits? What an honour!”
Lan Zhan nodded, opened his lips as if to say something, and then closed them again.
Wei Ying took notice of the little motion and perked up, his interest piqued.
“Lan Zhan? What is it? No taking it back! I’ve heard it with my own to ears.”
“Not taking it back,” Lan Zhan replied. “But –”
Quite uncharacteristically, he fell silent in the middle of his speech, and seemed to be searching for the right words.
Wei Ying was willing to wait him out, because Lan Zhan never said anything before he was ready to say it. But Lan Zhan didn’t speak up again. Instead, he stood in one abrupt motion, and walked over to the nightstand. He bypassed the rabbit and opened the top drawer of the nightstand. He took something out, and returned to Wei Ying’s side.
He held out a little box to Wei Ying.
“It is not meant as a commitment,” he said. “I do not wish to… trap you. But these have been my feelings for a long time.”
Wei Ying took the little box with shaky fingers. Of course he knew the shape of the box that Lan Zhan presented to him. It was a jewellery box. And jewellery meant…
He opened the little box, his heart nearly thundering out of his chest.
Inside was a beautiful ring, rather delicate, with the tiniest little ruby heart set into it.
Wei Ying gasped.
It was so small and delicate, it almost didn’t seem as if it was meant for him. And yet, it was somehow… perfect.
“Lan Zhan,” he asked with a shaky voice, “is that an engagement ring?”
“It is whatever Wei Ying wants it to be,” Lan Zhan replied, and to his credit, his voice sounded perfectly calm and steady.
But when Wei Ying peeled his eyes away from the ring box and looked up at Lan Zhan, he could clearly see how nervous Lan Zhan was. It showed all too plainly on his face.
Wei Ying had never seen him like this. He’d never seen Lan Zhan want something so openly.
Lan Zhan was a mess.
And that, more than anything else, did Wei Ying in.
His own emotions hadn’t quite caught up with him yet, but that didn’t matter. They would have ample time to catch up later. All that mattered was Lan Zhan, right now.
“Lan Zhan!” Wei Ying cried out, abandoning the little box and throwing himself at Lan Zhan, nearly taking down their breakfast with him. He wrapped his arms around Lan Zhan’s neck and clung to him, not planning to let go anytime soon.
“You should be more careful,” he warned once he had remembered that he was capable of speech. “When you say things like that too often, you might end up with me stuck to you for good.”
“Hn,” Lan Zhan agreed, and unless Wei Ying was completely wrong, he sounded suspiciously satisfied with the idea.
Which, honestly, suited Wei Ying just fine. If Lan Zhan was willing to put up with him, Wei Ying was going to stick to him forever. Not even Lan Zhan’s uncle would be able to peel him off.
“Oh!” He suddenly remembered, righting himself and wriggling around, until he properly sat in Lan Zhan’s lap. “Put it on, put it on! You have to put it on me!”
He eagerly fished for the abandoned box and pushed it at Lan Zhan.
“It’s an engagement ring,” he pompously decided. “I’m going to marry you and we’ll be so happy that everybody will be jealous.”
Lan Zhan didn’t say anything, but when he put the ring on Wei Ying’s finger – of course it was a perfect fit – he did so with an air of distinct satisfaction.
Later, when Wei Ying was snuggled into Lan Zhan’s bed with Lan Zhan as his cushion, he studied the ring on his finger as Lan Zhan carded his fingers through Wei Ying’s hair.
He was liar, probably. Lan Zhan had been trying to tell him something important for a while now, and Wei Ying had been too afraid to listen. Because… why, exactly? He didn’t know.
He’d just desperately clung to ignorance. Probably because he hadn’t thought this possible.
He turned his face and smiled at Lan Zhan, and Lan Zhan returned it with a small, but equally happy smile.
“I really, really like you Lan Zhan, you know that?” Wei Ying asked. “Even without the ring.”
“Hn,” Lan Zhan replied. “But I like the ring.”
“Me too,” Wei Ying confessed, and raised his hand again, to look at the ring on his finger again. “I don’t have one for you, though.”
“When we marry,” Lan Zhan said. All matter of fact.
It struck Wei Ying, then.
They were engaged. Which meant they would get married. And then have many cute babies and they would grow old together and…
“Aaaaaah,” Wei Ying cried, burying his face into Lan Zhan’s chest because he wasn’t able to bear the feeling of happiness rising in his chest.
“Graduation first,” Lan Zhan added.
“No illicit elopement?” Wei Ying asked with a grin, only the tiniest bit serious. After all, getting to boast that Lan Zhan was going to marry him was half the fun of a big wedding ceremony.
“No,” Lan Zhan decided. “When I marry Wei Ying, I will do it right.”
And that was that.
So simple.
“Hn,” Wei Ying replied, and then he laughed before he kissed Lan Zhan’s nose, wrinkled in offence.
A big wedding ceremony would be a disaster, and it would be perfect.
For them.
“I can’t believe I’m saying this, Lan Zhan, but I think there should be absolutely no alcohol allowed at our wedding. Ouch, why did you bite me? I’m just looking out for you!”

Episode 4. I love this one! great wizarding school vibes, lots of foreshadowing, Wei Wuxian being wonderfully annoying at Lan Wangji.
But first, let’s enter some Wens. Wen Chao should maaaaaaybe get a point for a bad ass entrance, but let’s face it. He’s entirely too try-hard about it to be truly bad ass. Instead, let’s have a look at Wen Qing keeping a tight rein on her temper.
Tumblr media
A text-book sword grab here, which I find interesting since women in this series don’t do it much... Something something repressed homoeroticism. I definitely feel for her though, trying to do any kind of subtle spying must be close to impossible if you’re being escorted around by the ever so subtle Wen Chao.
Tumblr media
As displayed by his tactful manners when entering the saluting ceremony.
Tumblr media
Lan Xichen can’t even.
Did I mention I adore Lan Xichen? He doesn’t get a sword grab though, opting instead for some really beautiful flute playing. It’s not enough for the Twin Jades to have those absolutely gorgeous looks, they are obviously also super talented at combining music with cultivation. I wonder if they’ve been practicing together a lot? interestingly, later in the series we get duets between Lan Wangji and Wei Wuxian, and Lan Xichen and Jin Guangyao, but not sure if we do get a scene with the brothers playing together. Will keep an eye out for it.
Something I really like about this episode is the way friendships start forming between the disciples from the different clans.
Tumblr media
Oh subtext.
Tumblr media
Fun scene between the Yunmeng siblings. (The foreshadowing here is real. Jiang Cheng reacts to worry and stress by practicing sword forms and Jiang Yanli by cooking and making peace.)
Tumblr media
Back in class, Lan Wangji is not amused.
Tumblr media
At least he gets to coolly correct Wei Wuxian when Lan Qiren calls on him to answer a question about dealing with resentful ghosts.
Tumblr media
Of course Wei Wuxian has to step in it, to the horror of pretty much everyone in class. Originally the foreshadowing here felt REALLY HEAVY-HANDED, but now I realized that the soundtrack here is Wangxian... it makes the scene a lot softer and more wistful, which I find I like a lot.
Closing down the episode with some archery and sword-fighting action in the back hill!
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Things I love about this episode: the burgeoning friendships between Wei Wuxian, Nie Huaisang, and Wen Ning. Wen Qing. Lan Xichen’s forbearance and patience. Wizarding school vibes.
Number of bad ass entrances: 0.
Number of rooftop duels: 0, but we do get a waterfall duel which probably counts for something.

A Ruddy Moon Drifting
Fandom: MDZS
Relationships: Lan Wangji/Wei Wuxian, Lan Wangji & Lan Xichen
Length: 16k
AO3 Link:
He runs toward the back of the cave on frantic feet. There is something else too, but—he is here, he must be here— A faint whimper. “A-Yuan!” Something, he can’t make out what, bowls him over in a tangle of limbs. It is snarling, trying to sink its long claws into him, and he reacts on instinct, pushing it away from him, away from the child cowering in the corner, and drawing Bichen. Getting to his feet, he raises his sword between himself and the pair of glowing red eyes. The thing moves so the light at the entrance of the cave outlines the thin, humanoid figure wearing dripping robes of black and red.
Lan Wangji finds Wei Wuxian, alive, when he saves A-Yuan from the Burial Mounds. His humanity, however, may be gone forever. Lan Xichen just wants to keep his brother safe.
Look! I made something! This was created for the MDZS 2021 Reverse Big Bang and contains waaay more Lan brothers feels than originally intended lol.
This couldn't have been created without Koschei, who had the idea and whose art is embedded in the fic, and @eldritch-elrics who did a wonderful job betaing!
