* Mian Mian being the only person to vocally stand up for Wei Wuxian in front of the other sects. When they dismiss her claims, she declares she will leave her sect if this is what they have become, throwing her uniform down in front of her sect leader and storming out of the building. Lan Wangji later follows her and while we don't hear or see their conversation they seem to respectfully part on good terms before she leaves.

* While this example counts more as tragic, there's a moment that stands out. During the Nightless City attack, Wei Wuxian goes nearly insane with grief and anger and starts attacking all the cultivation clans gathered there... except for the Jiang Sect. And while Jiang Cheng is conflicted on whether to defend his brother or not, at the very least he doesn't seem to hold any intent of attacking him either. Of course, that doesn't last...

* Nie Huaisang listening to the older sect leaders gossiping about Wei Wuxian's past, and he looks visibly uncomfortable just being near them. But once of the sect leaders son's Zizhen acts out and refuses to listen to him, Nie Huaisang is barely trying to hide a proud smile. He probably knows that this generation will learn to not be like their elders.
** Even Jiang Cheng is uncomfortable listening to it. Although his relationship from Wei Wuxian is on its way out the door, he still dislikes hearing gossip about someone he once considered a sworn brother.

* Wei Wuxian trying to ask Lan Wangji to set up a woman from his sect with Wen Ning. While it may seem funny, Wei Wuxian seriously tells Lan Wangji that after this whole affair is over, Wen Ning should have someone to be with, not constantly following him around like a servant. After so many years, Wei Wuxian believes this isn't the kind of life Wen Ning deserves.

Added DiffLines:

* Wei Wuxian attempting to flee with the rest of the Wen survivors until they come upon Lan Wangji standing in the middle of the road. He quietly urges Wei Wuxian to reconsider, since if he goes through with his plan, he would be turning his back against the cultivation world. Wei Wuxain points out the hypocrisy of the other cultivators and says that he'd rather walk his own path that he knows is right. As Wei Wuxian lifts his flute, he tells Lan Wangji he won't go down without a fight, but at least if he were to die he'd rather it be by Lan Wangji's hands. Knowing that Lan Wangji has always been a righteous person leaves Wei Wuxian to conclude that if Lan Wangji kills him, that would make him the more moral person. Instead... Lan Wangji pauses, and then slowly moves to the side to allow Wei Wuxian and the Wen survivors to pass. As the hooves finally fade into the distance along with the rain, Lan Wangji lets his umbrella fall and allowing the rain to wash over him.
** The fact that even though Lan Wangji knew he wouldn't be able to change Wei Wuxian's mind, he still trusts the other enough that he knows what's right. Even though there are no explicit love confessions, Lan Wangji's actions speak at how much he loves Wei Wuxian and how it took him all of his willpower just to turn away and let the man he loves turn his back against the world that was waiting to tear him apart.
* As Lan Wangji sits in the teashop and hears the gossip on Wei Wuxian becoming increasingly malicious, he angrily slams his tea cup on the table [[TranquilFury but still holds his stoic expression]]. The whole room goes silent as he quietly gets up and leaves. Even if he hasn't seen Wei Wuxian in a while, he knows that Wei Wuxian has only the best of intentions at heart and rightfully refuses to hear any more slander about him.

Added DiffLines:

* As Wei Wuxian "treats" Lan Wangji to a meal, A-Yuan continue to play with the man and Wei Wuxian attempts to get him to sit still, which the boy refuses to do. Lan Wangji then assures him he doesn't mind and as he takes a sip of his tea, he actually smiles a little. A-Yuan then immediately listens to Lan Wangji when he tells him not to talk during meals, which surprises Wei Wuxian.
* The three leave the restaurant in a hurry as one of Wei Wuxian's talisman's tell him something is wrong with Wen Ning. As he rushes outside with A-Yuan, Lan Wangji pays, pauses to look down at the toys and quickly picks them up. He then asks Wei Wuxian why he wasn't carrying his sword with him since it would be faster to fly than run. Wei Wuxian brushes it off saying he forgot it, so Lan Wangji once again wordlessly takes A-Yuan into his own arms and then the two quickly run towards the Burial Mounds.
* Wen Qing smiling as she gently takes her now awakened brother's face into her hands, nearly crying with joy as the first words to come out of his mouth was his sister. Then all of the other Wen's pour out of their hiding places to greet Wen Ning and ask if he recognizes them.
* A-Yuan begging Lan Wangji to stay for the night, but Wei Wuxian has to gently pry him off the other man's leg as he tells him he has his own family to go home to.
* A blink and you'll miss it moment, as A-Yuan stares at the lanterns being lit around the Burial Mounds, he doesn't look towards Wei Wuxian as he outstretches his hand for the older man to take. Wei Wuxian quietly and smoothly takes the boy's hand.


Added DiffLines:

* Wei Wuxian attempts the impossible once more by trying to grow lotus flowers in the Burial Mounds. Wen Qing keeps telling him he's wasting his time since only radishes seem to grow well around the Burial Mounds, but he ignores her. He manages to grow a sprout and it's implied later on that the other Wen's decided to help and now Wei Wuxian has his own pond of lotus flowers.
** While Wei Wuxian lost his temper and he yelled at A-Yuan, Wen Qing consoles the crying boy and gently tells him why Wei Wuxian acted the way he did, saying the flowers reminded him of his sister who he can no longer see but assures him it wasn't his fault. Then when A-Yuan goes to apologize to Wei Wuxian, the older man has calmed down enough to tell the boy not to worry. A-Yuan then asks why he doesn't just go and see his sister and Wei Wuxian replies she lived too far away. A-Yuan cheerfully tells him he can just fly there, leading to Wei Wuxian playing along with A-Yuan as the two flap their arms like wings.


* Although he never says these words to Wei Wuxian, Jiang Cheng does seem to finally let go of some of his emotional baggage as he tells Jin Ling he would have sent his brother off with a gentle and final, "Take care."

* Once he pulls the needles out of Wen Ning's head, he kneels in front of Wei Wuxian, calling him master. This makes Wei Wuxian as he tries to get him to stand and not refer to him that way. When Wen Ning refuses to budge, he kneels next to him, and then Wen Ning stands in a hurry to stop him. Wei Wuxian smiles and says it's better for the both of them to be standing if they want to talk. This shows how Wei Wuxian still wants Wen Ning to be his own person, not a mindless zombie to order around.

The two haven't seen each other in a while, but Wei Wuxian still went out of his way to defuse that situation for Lan Wangji because he knows he'd hate to violate the Lan rules, and because it was making him uncomfortable.

--> '''Wei Wuxian:''' I once thought of you as my soulmate in this lifetime.\\
'''Lan Wangji:''' ... I still am.


* As Wei Wuxian and Lan Wangji interrogate Nie Huaisang, Wei Wuxian keeps eyeing Nie Huaisang's fan and even takes it to examine it closer. When Nie Huaisang's given permission to leave and gingerly tries to take his fan back, Wei Wuxian comments that the artwork on it was impressive. In the past, he thought that even though this was Nie Huaisang's favorite fan and the art wasn't great, he chooses to act differently in his second life, or at least appreciates that Nie Huaisang hasn't seemed to change from their youth. Nie Huaisang thanks him for the compliment and adds that he has good taste.
