    Summary

    “It’s a kid?” Wei Wuxian says to Wen Qing. “What’s a kid doing dabbling with the ghostly path? Talking to my ghosts?” He sounds indignant.

    “Perhaps you should ask him,” Wen Qing says dryly.

    “Kid, why are you using demonic cultivation?” Wei Wuxian asks.

    “It works better when you want to work with spirits, rather than fight them,” Mo Xuanyu says. “And I’m not using demonic cultivation, I merely greeted your spirit and told him I was a friend and needed to talk to you. Well, something to that effect. Intention matters more than intonation with this stuff.”

    “Who taught you that?” Wei Wuxian asks, his voice shifting from indignation to intrigue.

    “You did,” Mo Xuanyu says. “Or well, your notes did, hmmm… five or six years from now.”

    Wei Wuxian wags a scolding finger at him and says, “You should be developing your golden core, not dabbling around with things you don’t under—Did you say five years from now? As in, in the future?”

    OR: What if instead of Sacrifice Summon, Mo Xuanyu discovered Wei Wuxian’s flawed time travel talisman?

    A Mo Xuanyu-centric found family time travel looping epic.

    Summary

    Prompt fill for Popular tropes à la bottomji.

    Renowned cultivator Lan Wangji travels to Yiling after its frightened residents travel all the way to Gusu to beg for help with a dangerous monster. In the Yiling mountains, Lan Wangji meets a mysterious stranger who is entirely too attractive for Lan Wangji’s peace of mind. And has a disconcerting habit of appearing in nothing but underwear every time they meet. While Lan Wangji searches for the monster, he keeps running into this charming stranger. Is it fate, or is it something else?

    Note: This story is set in a canon-based AU world with no Sunshot Campaign and features nine-tailed fox Wei Wuxian and human cultivator Lan Wangji. It's...not creepy at all, sorry. But warning for vulpine reproductive anatomy? (Hint: foxes are canids – see tags.)

    Summary


    Lan Zhan isn’t a curious man when it comes to other people's business, but if this person is gonna scream and ruin his quiet moment alone, he wants to see who it is.

    He's almost turning back inside, tired of waiting, when the man in red raises his eyes and finds him.

    For a second, he is frozen in place. The man catches him red handed, meeting his gaze head-on, and Lan Zhan feels his ears blushing despite his frustration. The man looks confused, and then intrigued. Lan Zhan thinks he will have no problem remembering him tomorrow. He has very… distinguishing features.

    When the man’s face turns into a full grin, Lan Zhan turns around and goes back inside.

    -

    Lan Zhan meets an infuriating florist while he's working as the cook in a wedding. Wei Ying is loud, annoying and childish, and Lan Zhan can't wait for the time when this wedding is done so he never has to see him again. Surely, the world isn't so small that they would meet a second time.
    Right?

    (or, the Cook/Florist AU)

    Summary

    “Wei Ying should say what he means,” Lan Wangji says pointedly.

    Wei Ying smiles. He tilts his head to the side like a curious bird, his hair gleaming like fire under the candlelight.

    “What I mean,” he says, one hand gently encircling Lan Wangji’s neck, thumb resting in the dip of his throat. “Is that I want you to surrender yourself to my care. I’ll decide what you wear, what you eat, where you go. I’ll decide when you get to come, if you even get to come at all. All you have to do is obey.”
