Club Yiling is unique in that it’s coed. Lan Wangji wishes it were less unique when he feels his throat go dry, eyes locking with a dancer sauntering out onto the stage with the most obscene sway to his hips. The man somehow picks him out of the crowd and winks at him with dark eyes, and Lan Wangji quickly averts his gaze, back to his glass, back to the condensation, back to melting ice and still water. His heart is beating rapidly in his ears, blood rushing to his head uncomfortably. He digs his nails into his palm.
It’s not like he’s never seen an attractive man before in his life—there are plenty of attractive men in the world. There are plenty of attractive men in his own sect. But Lan Wangji is the second young master of his family. He cannot look at men. He has a responsibility.

A strip club!AU (set in a modern world that still has cultivators) should by any rights be crack – instead this took me on a feel-filled journey and made me care so damn much.
“I can’t believe Mo Xuanyu did this to me,” grumbled Wei Wuxian, shaking his head. “How am I supposed to live as an omega!?”

All to often A/B/O fics don’t work for me, due to the power imbalances, but this… This is hot as well while also being sweet as sin. The perfect combination.
Wei Wuxian crosses the room in two strides and brushes his mouth against Lan Wangji’s, who goes still, but permits the kiss.
For Wei Wuxian, pleasure has always been something to be chased, his body something to be indulged. Even when you’ve unexpectedly been resurrected, you never know when a particularly tenacious fierce corpse is going to show up and rend you limb from limb – may as well bask in everything that feels good while you can.
Lan Wangji, on the other hand: sometimes Wei Wuxian kisses him and he’s warm and willing and pliant. On other days it’s liked the memory of the inscribed wall of laws in the Cloud Recesses – and the Gusu Lan sect has an immensity of stupid taboos about what you’re not supposed to do, and with whom – falls over him like a shroud, and he responds to Wei Wuxian’s flirtations with a stony stillness that hurts his heart. And so far he can never tell which Lan Wangji he’s going to get.

This is such an unusual but absolutely believable and interesting take on how Lan Wangji might react to being with Wei Ying.
Some days all Wei WuXian wanted was to hold Lan WangJi in his mouth. There was no reason for it, nothing caused it, he would just wake up and eat his breakfast and look at the man and think: Today, all I want is to hold him in my mouth.

So soft for a kinky fic – I love it!
As distraction, Wei Wuxian admires the way the faint lamplight gilds the long lines of Lan Wangji’s fingers around a teacup. The soft light seems to infuse his pale skin—his strength and grace have their own inherent glow—oh, damn, this is not a safe sort of distraction at all.

Two words: erotic cultivation. *fans self*
The younger Lan brother is something of an enigma on campus; while Lan Xichen can sometimes be seen in the company of other graduate students or conducting a seminar, Lan Wangji appears to spend all his time in class or in the library. He doesn’t drink. He doesn’t smoke. He doesn’t attend social events. He doesn’t do anything for fun, as far as Wei Wuxian can tell, and it’s driving Wei Wuxian just a little bit up the wall.

For some reason college AUs are my catnip for this ship, and this one is simply excellent.
“Wei Ying.” No response. Not even the twitch of an eyelid. Just the same dull, vacant stare he’s been wearing since Lan Wangji pulled him away from the carnage at the Nightless City.

This hurts. I always wondered how this scene from the novel might have gone and have now accepted this as canon.
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.
“Why would a person like another person? I mean that kind of like.”
He makes an abrupt pause in his writing, and though he doesn’t look up, the smudge on the paper is ever-growing. If not for the practice of his calligraphy, all the work put into transcribing those rules would have been for nought. He’ll have to discard those, and start over.
Wei Wuxian, however, unfortunately encouraged by his reticence, continues.

What if our boys had been just a bit less oblivious? A gorgeous, warm-hearted canon-divergence. Love the characterisations here.
“We are hoping to dry off and get some rest after a long journey,” Lan Zhan says. “Would you have a room for the night?”
The woman gives them a long look up and down, and a slow grin. “We have a room and much more, Young Masters.” Wei Wuxian has also noticed the make-up on the female halves of the two couples currently giggling together over their wine, and some discord between the girls’ pretty robes and the simple style of dress of their male friends, and he throws Lan Zhan a look.
Lan Zhan is his most polite self, nodding at their landlady. His face is still wet, gleaming in the inn’s soft light, which is a cute look on him.

Traveling together, Wei Ying and Lan Zhan seek shelter from a storm in this completely delightful first time fic.
