Subject: I honestly think the smut in STWWX is boring.

It's the painfully obvious way in which the prose is meant to enable the tagging of more and more ridiculous things that does it for me. It's the only real explanation I can muster for why Wei Wuxian and Lan Wangji would derail the plot to eat Korean food -- so that Korean food can be tagged for.
There are at least three universe burn-down/timeline resets in the fic, Wei Wuxian and Lan Wangji become omnipotent Suvian deities, they invent a tentacled AI that is also omnipotent, etc. The smut is excessive, but it's not the worst thing about the fic.
Oh, and re: Tangled Web, the STWWX mission will actually have reference to how it broke the DIC, so there's that :P
