In case anyone is wondering - I'm still here! It's just super busy at work right now so I haven't had the time/concentration for fic and likely won't for another week or two. There's absolutely loads that look super interesting in my to-read list though, so hopefully I'll be back at it soon :D

Post-Canon, buuuut also, Alternate Universe - Canon Divergence, Aphrodisiacs, Mildly Dubious Consent, Getting Together, Lan Wangji's Dubious Horny Decision-Making, the temporary erectile dysfunction is a feature not a bug
Word count: 6k
It isn't even an accident, precisely—that might be the most humiliating thing about it. Lan Wangji had tasted the tea, expecting it to be precisely what it revealed itself to be; Lan Wangji had wanted to feel its effects, to gauge them, although he had expected them to be mild. He had brewed the tea himself. An entirely uncoerced and foolish act.
Lan Wangji has a misadventure with an aphrodisiac. It works out for everyone.

Hi, sorry to bother you but I was hoping you could help me find a fic! I believe it was mulitchapter, where each chapter was a story of how WWX was almost assaulted thorught his life (early chapters where in Lotus Pier as a kid) then later ones where post-canon where he and LWJ are together. There was a scene where WWX was attacked by two guys and he summoned two corpses to deal with them. I lost title or author of this and hoped you may know. Thanks!
I don’t think I’ve read this one I’m afraid...

wangxian, 18k | rated E, classical musicians AU, getting together, coming of age / finding your way
The thing with musical prodigies is that they’re soloists, and soloists play alone. He doesn’t want to play alone anymore.
“A summer guest lecture series? Oh, very nice. I wish I could sit in on that.”
“Do you also play the piano?”
“Not even a little bit,” says Wei Ying cheerfully. “But I’m sure you’d have a lot of thoughts on musicality that would be relevant regardless.”
“Oh,” says Lan Zhan. He seems to be searching for something else to say. “I believe it is oversubscribed,” he says finally.
“As it should be,” says Wei Ying, and does not tell him that he has all of Lan Zhan’s albums downloaded onto his phone, listened to over and over when he’s on a train, a plane, waiting for a taxi, has followed his career since he overheard half a Mendelssohn when they were fifteen.

Worry still sat in Wei Wuxian's stomach like a stone, but what Lan Wangji was describing sounded less like the curse was acting up and more like he'd gone and caught a cold.
As if on cue, Lan Wangji sneezed loudly.
On their first night hunt together after Wei Wuxian returns from his travels, Lan Wangji gets hit with a curse that seals his spiritual power. With his defenses down, he soon catches a cold.
Wei Wuxian is ready to look after him. What he's not ready to deal with are Feelings.

Idk how if this is where I'm meant to say this, but my fave of Jin Ling & Wei Ying talking about his fear of dogs is Exposure Therapy by lise. There's no getting trapped or anything so Idk if that's the vibe you're looking for but I really liked that fic!
Thank you! I’ll link it in the other ask as well.

He was looking for a specific reaction—to get Lan Zhan to lash out. All hard edges and demanding, the same way during the first scrim, Lan Zhan's dark voice had made him loose and obedient, itching to both rebel and obey at the same time.
It's them, whatever it is, but it doesn't belong on the basketball court.
Wei Ying didn't expect to enter a weird... something-with-benefits-plus-power-play with the captain of the Gusu basketball team. He's not sure if it's worth it.

So sorry if this is a stupid question or has been asked before but is there a way to filter so that the particular ship you want is the main one ? As in the first one in the list of ship tags on the fic. So you can filter out the fics where the pairing you're looking for isn't the side pair ? Thank you sm for this blog it is so useful, brings sm joy just scrolling through all your posts!
Heya, if you’re filtering fic in the AO3 search, you can exclude ships like in the screenshot below Unfortunately, it will filter out ALL fic with that tagged, so for example if you wanted to filter out WangXian, it will filter out everything where WangXian is the side pairing too. There isn’t a better method as far as I’m aware.

Can you recommend a fic that has Jin Ling and Wei WuXian either get trapped or something and they just end up talking and Wei Wuxian actually explains why he's afraid of dogs and it's just a tense but sweet bonding moment for them?
Sorry it's not really specific, but I've had no luck looking for good fics with them just bonding/clearing the air without it going into bad territory.
Hmmm, I don’t have any impression of the specific thing you’re looking for, and there’s only a couple of things in my JL & WWX tag, I’m afraid. Does anyone else have any recs?
EDIT: An anon has recced Exposure Therapy by lise

It was only when they arrived at the airport to meet a group of his coworkers and Wei Ying told them cheerfully, "Hey everyone, meet Lan Zhan!", only when — luckily! — Lan Zhan went to the weigh-scales to once again weigh their baggage because he was just like that, only when Gina said, "Oh, how romantic!" that Wei Ying realized that he was, in fact, a little bit screwed.
Because only then had he remembered that maybe he’d told his coworkers at several office parties that Lan Zhan was the love of his life.

There is a ghost in the Cloud Recesses.
It is a rumor, repeated only in hushed whispers beyond the four walls of the Jingshi, but Lan Wangji knows what they say. There is a ghost in the Cloud Recesses, clad in mourning white, that can only be glimpsed at night, beneath the moonlit sky. Quiet, he walks the paths of the Cloud Recesses. He does not speak, and he is gone by morning.
There might be some among the younger disciples who believe the tales, but Lan Wangji knows the truth. There are echoes—of those long gone, those who passed years upon years before Lan Wangji ever drew breath—but there are no ghosts in the Cloud Recesses.
Or: three nights in the Jingshi.

Alternate Universe - Modern with Magic
Word count: 14k
“A-Yuan,” he says, carefully, “did—did you make the flowers grow like this?”
A-Yuan shakes his head in exasperation. “Baba, I said. Doctor Flowers did it.”
“Doctor Flowers,” Lan Zhan repeats, pointing at the tiny plum tree, just to confirm that his son is suggesting a magical tree named Doctor Flowers sprouted overnight and made their tame family project turn into a verdant jungle.
A-Yuan nods. “Doctor Flowers,” he confirms. “He’s funny! I like him.”
A mysterious garden blooms on Lan Zhan's rooftop. His internet forum pen pal gives great gardening advice but never seems to sleep. The man who works at the florist, who keeps reviving the plants that Lan Zhan can't seem to keep alive, has a beautiful smile.
These things are related.

Alternate Universe - Modern With Cultivation, Sex Demons, slight dubcon, but all parties are happy, Hurt/Comfort
Word count: 17k
Dating a yao is a lot more mundane than some might imagine. Or, at least, less filled with danger. At least for Lan Zhan.
Of course, "dating" may be too strong of a word for it. Currently Lan Zhan is taking it day by day, as Wei Ying wishes, but he is biding his time until he can truly demonstrate to Wei Ying that they have nothing to worry about and that Wei Ying is safe with him.
Years of lonely hunting for scraps, however, have conditioned Wei Ying to be wary of even the most reliable of circumstances. Lan Zhan will not let that dissuade him. He will simply have to make himself more reliable.

Word count: 10k
So the thing about being a professional submissive, in Wei Ying’s opinion, is that it requires a lot more project management than most people think. Like, when he tells people about his job, they’re always like “oh but how do you take care of the bruises,” or “how do you store your elaborate harness get-ups” and sure, he has plans for all of that, but no one is asking the real questions, like “How do you remember everyone’s preferred forms of address and also all of their physical home addresses?”

Is that not every fic where he finds out?
I’m afraid I don’t have a tag for this and I can’t think of anything off the top of my head
