Lan Wangji has made his feelings plain. He’s here because he has to be, because this is war, because the Sunshot Campaign is drawing all of the resources from all of the remaining sects. He wouldn’t be spending all this time with Wei Wuxian otherwise. Someday the war will be over; in the meantime Wei Wuxian can pretend that they’re allies, that he merits Lan Wangji’s company, that Wei Wuxian is someone Lan Wangji would choose to spend time with if war hadn’t curtailed his other options.
Pretense doesn’t last forever, but Wei Wuxian is very stubborn, and a very good liar.
Wei Ying and Lan Zhan hook up during the Sunshot Campaign – but that’s all it is, right? Or maybe not. This is gorgeous.
