“Oh? Who’s this?” mother asks, voice teasing, when she finds them sneaking lotus cakes from the kitchen. Jiang Fengmian is confused by the question.

“That’s Changze, mother,” he says, and shares a glance with his daemon. Maybe seeing him in Fengmian’s robes and the hairstyle he’d fixed his hair into had left him unrecognizable?

He’ll remember the expression on her face forever. The way her cat daemon steps back, hissing, hair raised. The way Changze turns back into his sneaky-weasel form and throws himself into Jiang Fengmian’s arms in fright, the robes he was wearing collapsing discarded on the ground.

They’re marched to father’s office by mother’s firm hand on Jiang Fengmian’s shoulder, Changze still shivering against his chest. Jiang Fengmian will never forget that for just one moment her hand hovered before settling, like she’s too afraid, too disgusted to touch.

*

“Why is it wrong?” Changze asks Father’s daemon.

“It’s not wrong,” she says. But she sounds tired. Unconvinced. “It’s never been done before. We didn’t know it could be done.”

“Isn’t that a good thing?” whispers Jiang Fengmian. He doesn’t understand.

She doesn’t answer him.

*

By the time Changze settles into his final shape at age fifteen, ‘Wei Changze’ has already been given an identity, a position as Jiang Fengmian’s personal servant. An excuse to be at his side, night and day.

Mother has long since given up on her deviant son, but father is kinder. He teaches them both how to run a sect, and lets Wei Changze practice his calligraphy while Jiang Fengmian goes through the expenditure accounts.

*

There are rumours about Jiang Fengmian, none of them particularly kind. The rumours reached the Cloud Recesses before they did.

Jiang-gongzi is a pampered prince, gets to bring a servant with him.

Jiang-gongzi doesn’t even have a daemon.

Jiang-gongzi’s a weakling, his daemon is a spider he hides in his sleeve.

Jiang-gongzi cuts his sleeve for that kid they call his servant.

It doesn’t bother Wei Changze, that people think he is Jiang Fengmian’s pleasure servant. “Fengmian-gege, I am your soul. Don’t be ridiculous. And I’ve spent many days in your bed.” He says the last seductively, lowering his head and batting his eyes, and Jiang Fengmian cuffs him on the ear. Wei Changze just laughs, then drops down to sprawl on Jiang Fengmian’s bed in the shared room. “I know Fengmian-gege likes women, I’ve seen how much you paid that Nie disciple for the erotic artwork of the-”

Rumours be damned, Jiang Fengmian climbs onto his bed to wrestle his daemon into a headlock, and tries to shut him up.

Can we talk about how, in CQL, nie huaisang bringing his friends and their prisoner to the unclean realms was the justification wen chao used for attacking? Huaisang even realized the danger during the interregation and asked about it out loud. And yet, no censure or punishment fell onto him because nie mingjue would never have instructed his brother to abandon his friends and because he understood what the older sect leaders would not: that the wens had no intention of making peace in the first place. The idea that huaisang was to blame for this never came up because it was just. Not true.

In direct contrast to that, when wei wuxian stood up for his friends, yunmeng jiang’s allies, madam yu rained hell on him when wen chao used it as a bullshit justification. And wei wuxian felt he deserved it, that he should take the punishment, even though none of it would have saved lotus pier from an increasingly hostile enemy in the end

In it’s own way, it makes an incredible amount of sense that huaisang turned out how he did. He was raised to believe you didn’t abandon your allies, that you didn’t turn away people when you had shelter, that fair is fair…. only to have that worldview ripped from him in the most violent ways possible time and time again. The war, his brother’s gruesome death, the betrayal, the years of fear and uncertainty, the knowledge that he’d known wei wuxian and he knew he wasn’t a liar and his brother wasn’t a crazed maniac and it didn’t matter at all–it all added up. All these things caught up to the boy who never even thought to leave his friends to fend for themselves in the cold and turned him into something cold and jaded

Warning: Spoilers for All 50 Episodes!

Okay! This episode is a real slice of healthy family dynamics, not triggering in any way. [Uh if this is your first Restless Rewatch: that is sarcasm, dear readers]

Goodbye to You, Goodbye to Everything We Knew

Nie Huaisang asks why Meng Yao has to leave and Meng Yao says “I killed a guy without permission, so your brother fired me." 

image

Ha ha ha ha no he doesn’t. But he does give Nie Huaisang a sweet, sad smile; he seems touched by NHS’s distress. 

image

Meng Yao carefully removes Nie Huaisang’s hands from his shoulders and bows to him, wordlessly signaling the change in their relationship from intimate friends to formal strangers, while Nie Huaisang looks crushed. 

They will return to intimate friendship in the future, but falsely. Meng Yao believes that truly loving a person can include destroying their family and using them as an instrument in your murder plots as long as you don’t directly harm them.  Nie Huaisang eventually learns to use people just as brutally, but he doesn’t lie to himself about what he’s doing. This farewell may be the last harmless moment between these friends. 

image

Jiang Cheng is distressed by what’s going on, while Wei Wuxian crosses his arms and watches, fully in Sherlock Holmes mode, instead of his more usual concerned-for-my-friend mode. This may signal mistrust of Meng Yao, who refused his initial attempt at friendship, and not in a sexy, slice-your-face-off way.  Or it may mean that he’s reserving judgement on a complicated family situation. He maintains his uncharacteristic reserve through the entire encounter. 

(more behind the cut!)

Why thanks, totally random anon! I think it might go something like this:


Jiang Yanli had never been an especially strong cultivator, with most of her training focusing, from a young age, on the kind of internal work that helped her qi flow smoothly to ease the pain that sometimes flared up within her body.

It was a surprise, then, to the quartermaster of Lotus Pier, when the Young Mistress appeared in his office one day and asked if she could learn the talismans used for food storage and long-term preservation of household goods. The cooks, too, long-since used to the Young Mistress joining them in the kitchen to prepare meals and treats for her brothers in the traditional way, were intrigued by her new interest in stasis charms and the kinds of rations the cultivators took night hunting. Even the weapons master received a visit from Young Mistress that summer, with a request for advice on small blades that could be most easily hidden on one’s person and used effectively without much spiritual energy behind them.

Enough of the staff was whispering about the Young Mistress’s newfound curiosity about practical cultivation - hardly the sorts of things a proper future Jin-furen would need to know personally, and certainly nothing she’d shown a particular interest in before - that Yu Ziyuan decided it was time to investigate exactly what her daughter suddenly seemed to be preparing for.

Thanks to a dream I had several nights ago, I ended up writing this. It’s the beginning of a Multi-chaptered fic that can be read on AO3 here. I’m not even remotely sorry for this.

Not in the slightest


One

The day Sect Leader Jiang dies is a day that the entire cultivation world remembers. For them, the passing of the Jiang Sect Leader is an event not to be ignored or celebrated. It is a day to remember his amazing deeds; losing his entire Sect to the Wen and then rebuilding it from the ground up; becoming a living legend during the Sunshot Campaign; fighting and killing the Yiling Laozu; raising the son of his beloved A-Jie into a fine young man who took the mantle of Jin Sect Leader well; being part of revealing the truth of Jin Guangyao’s deceit to the entire cultivation world; fighting fierce corpses and holding demonic cultivators to account for their crimes.

The day Sect Leader Jiang dies is one to remember his deeds and those of his brother, the last of his family beside the Sect Leader Jin.

For Sect Leader Jiang, it’s just another day of enduring a tired soul and a damaged heart, pasted back together with anger and grief. He expects the day to end with his finally seeing his family and those of his Sect who died in the Wen attack, again.

He closes his eyes, takes his last breath, and lets go. The heavens greet him and Jiang Cheng sees his family once more.

Hogwarts AU and MDZS

In a Hogwarts AU, I like to think that Wei Wuxian would base his House on the outcome of Jiang Cheng’s sorting. He’d argue with the sorting hat all morning if he has to

If both Jiang Cheng and him were in the same House, Yu Ziyuan would definitely hate him more if he outshone Jiang Cheng in any way— she’d even give her son more shit because of that. More so if in they’re in the same House

And knowing Wei Wuxian? Effortlessly brilliant and charming Wei Wuxian with his sunny smiles and fucking smarts?

He may be obnoxious and arrogant at times, but no one can deny that Wei Wuxian is a genius who managed to climb ranks despite not being a Pureblood and just a servant’s son

So, no. Not the same House as Jiang Cheng, even if he’d like to be with his not-brother. Also, not in Jiang Fengmian’s previous House too. Especially when Jiang Cheng was not sorted in that House

Jiang Fengmian happy with Wei Wuxian = Seething Madam Yu, and most likely jealousy and self-deprication from Jiang Cheng poor A-Cheng, whatever he does is not enough

If we’re going by the usual Houses (Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and Slytherin), Jiang Fengmian would either be Hufflepuff or Gryffindor. He doesn’t strike me as a Ravenclaw, and he lacks the ambition to be Slytherin

Yu Ziyuan is Slytherin for sure since she’s full of ambition with enough will and conviction to do whatever it takes to secure her goals

Ravenclaw is what I think Wei Wuxian would choose. It’s the House where his talents and mind can be appreciated, even if he gives people heart attacks and pure rage with some of his outrageous suggestions. It’s also the House where he thinks he can do the least damage to the relationship of Jiangs

Why I like the idea of Wei Wuxian choosing Ravenclaw

I just like the idea of Wei Wuxian finding people he can have debates and intellectual conversations with on various fields of interest in Ravenclaw. I love the idea of people not dismissing his thoughts and rants as the ramblings of the fool he portrays.

I would love to read about people contemplating said ideas and people engaging with him

His rambles on resentful energy and the possible applications of it as a cultivation technique or whatever? Someone is already taking notes on that secretly, and is already thinking on ways on how to approach him on the subject

Wei-xiong, I heard about what happened this morning with Lan Qiren. Say, do you think we could collaborate on this project of mine? I’ve been researching on it since sophomore, and I finally found someone to talk with!

His cooking being used as medicine or a weapon because of how spicy it is?

You know, maybe Wen-guniang can make some medicine or something out of this. Aside from a burnt tongue and burning— ah… Your cooking could be helpful in making people sweat more!

I just love the idea of people being openly admiring and appreciating Wei Wuxian for his smarts. Bonus points since it makes him flustered because he didn’t expect that there are people who actually listen to him and acknowledge him

Why I like the idea of Wei Wuxian and Jiang Cheng in different Houses

Okay look. Jiang Cheng has always been compared to Wei Wuxian ever since he was small— they have been constantly pitted against each other by Madam Yu, and his own father is more openly affectionate with Wei Wuxian than with him

Growing up with a sibling who you’re constantly being compared with, and thinking that your best efforts would never be enough hurts like hell. It would be for the best if Jiang Cheng was given the time and space to grow without being in Wei Wuxian’s shadow

I do think that Jiang Cheng would like to have Wei Wuxian with him in the same House, and I do think that he’d be upset if they weren’t in the same House

It would also be a breath of fresh air for him though, and a chance to make a name for himself in his House without the threat of having to compete with Wei Wuxian even if Wei Wuxian didn’t take it seriously

Besides, it’s not like they can’t visit each other from time to time— it’s not as if some measley curfew could stop them from sneaking out off Hogwarts in the middle of the night. They wouldn’t even let the school policy stop them from going to each other’s or to their sister’s table to eat together


This are all just my ramblings 😅✌️ If anyone has any fic recommendations on Ravenclaw!WWX, and Different Housemates! Wei Wuxian and Jiang Cheng— then please tell me ✌️

I absolutely hate that you can find thousands of post about how Lan Wangji was whipped because of/for Wei Wuxian, but I have yet to find a single post that‘s about Wei Wuxians whip scars and how much he suffered at the hands of Madam Yu when the Wens invaded Lotus Pier.

(I am not even going to talk about how much I hate that Zidian, a weapon that is basically a string of lightning didn‘t leave any scars.)

[Deleted scene from the one where WWX takes YZY’s place at the BM! ANd guess what, apparently I have more of this fic written than I realized! That WIP title thing was a good idea!!!]

“I threw him into the burial mounds. It’s a pity I couldn’t watch, but I could hear the screaming. He screamed for three days, after that all I heard was chewing. Even if you’re stupid enough to go look for him, I’m sure the corpses have finished eating him by now,” says Wen Chao.

No.

Please no.

He didn’t deserve such a grotesque fate.

“So he,” paid the price for bringing ruin to Lotus Pier, she wants to say, but the words stick in her throat. Yu Ziyuan hates lying.

Brought ruin to Lotus Pier? He’d only tried to protect a girl from being branded on the face. If Yu Ziyuan had been there, she would have done the same, would have whipped Wen Chao for the attempt.

She’s claimed to want him gone for years, ever since Jiang Fengmian first brought him home, and now?

She lets Zidian fly, but it is no use. This boy has already killed Wei Wuxian.

—————-

Yu Ziyuan tucked Wei Wuxian into the infirmary bed and let Healer Kang know what had occurred, but she had felt strangely distant from the world. Her split-second decision to take in the children had shocked even her, but that wasn’t the cause. 

Fengmian’s loving look at her after her pronouncement, despite the way her decision was made without consulting him—or was it because of that?—was what had left her reeling. 

If a ten-year-old had started to teach these children, they could have bright futures. They seemed eager to learn. This would make them loyal to Yunmeng Jiang, not merely disciples but wards. It was a smart move, one that would result in fewer street children. Even if these children did not form golden cores, they could be educated to take on a trade and strengthen Lotus Cove regardless. 

But that wasn’t why she had done it. Today, seeing those children in the market, remembering the bright and curious waif Fengmian had brought home, it was like another second chance had presented itself to her. A chance to make right.

Ever since the attack on Wei Ying, she’d felt soft toward the child, watching him in his coma those weeks, seeing him as more than just her rival’s son. 

Truly, Cangse Sanren had not been a rival, as she had never sought Fengmian’s attention. In the time of Wei Ying’s convalescence, Ziyuan spent time considering her treatment of the boy, the way her children reacted when she treated him well, the way a-Cheng seemed to shrink in on himself when she compared him unfavorably with Wei Ying, whose reaction was much the same, as though she had found him unworthy. In comparison, the way both boys seemed to blossom under a-Li’s affection… 

Old habits were hard to break, and she had let herself fall into them again, despite her desire for a new beginning.

Ziyuan knew she was all sharp edges, often cutting people with her words and attitude. Often it was useful with sect business, being able to slice through the bluster of some of the other sect leaders. These sharp edges, though, cut her children, cut young Wei Ying, made her a figure they often shrank from, expecting to be hurt.

#theuntamededit, #mdzsedit, #mdzsnet, #cqledit, #cql, #wei wuxian, #jiang cheng, #jiang yanli, #jiang fengmian, #yu ziyuan, #ugh i have a lot of feelings about this one, #but i'm not sure the gifs get the point across, #it's just the recklessness and lack of self-worth that follow wwx after his family has fallen on bad times, #so his shijie wants him to save jiang cheng so they can all go to meishan, #but wwx doesn't answer - because he can promise the first but not the last part, #he WILL save jiang cheng, #but he doesn't care if that means he himself doesn't make it back, #giving his golden core to jiang cheng - he doesn't answer wen qing, #because what does it matter what the consequences are?, #and then that most heartbreaking scene, #where he secedes from the jiang clan, #which you can write LONG essays on the layers of miscommunication, #but jiang cheng saying he'll have a difficult political situation if he needs to keep defending his brother, #and wei wuxian finding the easy answer - then don't protect me. just abandon me, #and while these actions didn't start out focussed on saving jc, #wwx does realise perfectly well how his actions implicate the jiang clan and therefore his brother, #so as to unburden jc - since that's how he sees it - he takes away the difficulty by just leaving the clan, #just so he can protect jc from political ramifications, #i just... god my dude i understand why jiang cheng wants to beat him up sometimes, #he means well but also. get a sense of self-worth
