au where wwx is a big artist and lwj is a writer in the same fandom and they’re simpmates trying to get one to notice the other
now this is just for funsies but imagine the hilarity of them mutually refusing to follow each other because they want to be noticed on their own efforts and talent by the other, not for some cheap follow back!!!!
but they do follow on privs and all of it is like

wwx: today twitter user lwjwrites posted this heartwrenching ficlet about hanguang jun and yiling laozu breaking up and i started tearing up at work i hate it here

lwj: If art was a person, I would want to bed @/weiwusexy’s.
all of their priv is just SIMPIN and jc and nhs are always replying to wwx’s simp tweets like “[points and laughs]” “DUDE JUST REPLY TO HIS TWEETS AND SIMP THERE WHY ARE U DOING IT HERE” and wwx is like “NO HE HAS TO NOTICE ME FIRST OKAY MOTHERFUCKER”
wwx’s simp tweets are near illegible. he’s degrading the concept of language itself because all his tweets are like “hfhfdhhdhshdhfhhdhffffrffgg barkr baerk woof WOFIO LWJWRITES BARK BARKR WOOFE WOOFOF IM LVORE YOU SOS MUCUCH.,!!(!(! BAKRR BARK”
meanwhile lwj is writing mini thread essays on the beauty of wwx’s art except he doesn’t actually know anything about art so it’s like “Today @/weiwusexy posted another drawing. Effervescent. I am so grateful to be born in the same era as him”
it would also be a little funny if they each had this huge folder of fanart made for lwj’s fics / fic for wwx’s art and they just never released it ever because then the mortifying ordeal of being known
but also , consider lwj and wwx being each other’s first followers or something (on priv of course) like they started creating content around the same time and they fell in love with the content they created and 🥺🥺 simping in PRIVATE
but also the MISUNDERSTANDINGS. by year two of this sexually charged mutual simping wwx is groaning like “im gonna give up ao3 user lwjwrites is never going to notice me and im going to die sad and talentless and unloved and im going to simp over him and his sexy hands FOREVER”
nhs: how do you know what his hands look like?????
wwx: lol he has a side account for his bunnies and sometimes in the reflections of the bunnies’ food bowls i see his hands and they’re very sexy
nhs: i actually sort of admire you for how pitiful you are
it would be even funnier if someone followed both of their privs. like nhs
nhs: no you don’t understand this is the funniest situation i’ll ever encounter in my life and i have to suffer in silence because if i tell anyone about what’s so funny and why i ruin it okay the weight of the world is on my SHOULDERS
nhs’s yoga instructor: take deep breaths
anyways i think it would also be deeply romantic if maybe it was wwx who made a little doodle on a napkin during work of his favorite show and posted it to his incredibly obscure and old twitter, expecting that no one would see it
and then!!! lwj seeing it!!! seeing the simple broad strokes of someone’s creativity and love and passion moving him!!!! writing for the first time in a while and putting out a whole 80k longfic about how two people in love can reinvent each other every day and make them better!!
AND THEN!!!! WWX READING IT AND HAVING SUCH A DEEP REACTION TO THE IDEA OF BEING LOVED UNCONDITIONALLY AND THE IMPORTANCE OF CREATION AND LOVE THAT HE COMES OUT OF HIS TWO YEAR ART HIATUS AND DRAWS AGAIN!!!!!! WANGXIAN FUKKIN LOVE!!!!!!!!
anyways i think the funniest part is like the elaborate identity porn of them being in an anonymous big bang or something together. lwj trying to switch up his writing and do something new like a modern au instead of a normal canonverse fic
wwx, reading lwj’s wips for the big bang: huh this seems familiar
wwx, reading lwj’s fics: huh this seems familiar
wwx, reading lwj’s ficlets: huh this seems
the ONLY reason why wwx doesn’t recognize lwj’s writing in the bb is because of the modern au. that’s it. everything else is the same and wwx is like “lol this guy must be lwjwrites’s brother or something damn this is crazy”
but also......... the moment wwx sends a wip for the art of lwj’s big bang fic, lwj’s third eye opens and he KNOWS. that nose!!! that shading!!!! that smooth lineart and the way he draws the folds in the clothes!!!!!! THAT’S TWITTER USER @/WEIWUSEXY!!!!!!
[9:07 pm in the lan household, which is everyone else’s 3:37 am]

lwj: ge
lwj: ge please pick up
lwj: ge this is an emergency
lxc, groggy: what
lwj: i am dying
lxc, fully aware of lwj’s bullshit: is this a normal dying or “your artist posted a new drawing” dying
lwj: Ge Please
imagine lwj going into such a “my favorite artist drew art for my fic that he read and enjoyed and drew art for” haze that he immediately writes 5k right there on the spot, just finishes the fic and adds a cute epilogue where hanguang jun and yiling laozu are married with a bunny
and then he sends off the document to wwx and just crashes. does not wake up. and wwx gets the doc, reads it, LOSES HIS SHIT IN THE DMS TO LWJ, but also becomes increasingly confused when........ lwj does not...... respond........
wwx: hello???
wwx: HEWWO???? ARE YOU ALIVE??????
wwx: SIR U CANT JUST DROP 50K OF MODERN AU GOODNESS AND GHOST?????? SIR??????
wwx: okay be that way
wwx: if you don’t respond im not gonna draw art for this!!
wwx: jk i am but I WONT SHOW YOU
wwx: sir hello SIR
and lwj watches these messages flood in with increasing panic because what are you supposed to do when you find out that your favorite artist is creating art for your fic!!!!!! do you just keysmash???? do you write a handwritten love letter and fax it??? do you DIE???
then cue increasingly curt messages from lwj who’s rly just trying to figure out the appropriate amount of enthusiasm to show to wwx’s art. he errs on the side of caution and the bang ends w wwx feeling awkward and the distinct idea that for some reason, his writer hates him
wwx, the day before the names are revealed for the bang: sooo..... uhh...... i guess this is it
lwj: Yes.
wwx: well um
wwx, internally:
wwx: it was nice working with u???
wwx: i rly enjoyed ur fics and i think they fuck super hard and. yeah. thank u for ur work!!
lwj: Ah. Thank you for yours as well.
wwx: haha yeah np
wwx, internally: HAHA YEAH????? ARE YOU STUPID AT LEAST FIND OUT WHY HE HATES YOU
anyways wwx musters up the courage to send one last msg that’s like “uhh but also one last thing idk what i did to make u hate me but whatever it is, i’m sorry. i rly did enjoy working w u!! but yeah thanks again for all ur work <3”
lwj, staring in exponentially increasing horror at “idk what i did to make u hate me”: I Have Made A Mistake
but it’s too late because by the time he frantically drafts up an explanation and a long apology letter for his actions, the server has closed and wwx’s dms are closed and lwj is going to dissolve because his favorite artist thinks he hates him and that’s just not true!!!!
anyways weh weh weh cue MORE IDENTITY PORN. the names go up and immediately wwx leaps to find out who his writer is, if only to snoop and post questioning screenshots on his priv about how his writer hates him, ONLY TO STOP IN UTTER SHOCK AS THE NAME READS “LWJWRITES”
