PAIRING: Lan WangJi x Wei WuXian
NOTE: Lan WangJi x Wei WuXian; Lan WangJi x Yiling Laozu
“Wei WuXian said, “Oh well, the incense burner’s effect has faded now, let’s keep it safe in the meantime so no one else will accidentally come across it. If a forging master happens to visit one day, then we can take it out and ask him again.”
Both of them thought the effect of the incense burner is gone but little did they know, it’s the complete opposite.” — Chapter 119: Incense burner.
After being continuously plagued by dreams, Lan WangJi realized that the only way to break the cycle is to return to the past and talk to a person from his past.
That person is, unironically, Wei WuXian.
Following a case in Yiling, Lan WangJi and Wei WuXian came to realize more truth about the incense burner, and at the same time, untie an unrelenting knot from the past.
Lan WangJi spent a long time trying to come back to himself. The ceiling above him was just a bit smudged but not intolerable. He didn’t blink. Just staring, like he was trying to catch a hint of something above him, something that he couldn’t see. There’s an eldritch ado in his mind that he can’t get rid of. It’s like ten people were murmuring into his ears all at the same time. Yet, he can’t catch any word they said; just very muzzy sounds. He can barely move his body, let alone his fingers. Eventually, the sounds in his ears became sharper. He can finally make out words.
