“A Demon,” Jie Jing repeated to herself and a small smile made two dimples appear on her cheeks briefly like this discovery made her truly happy. She slid the doors shut behind her, her eyes fixated on his face with guarded curiosity.

Yu Dian realized he had gotten to his feet at her appearance. He also realized he was staring with his mouth open. He closed it - but he could not take his eyes from her however hard he tried to be more polite.

CUBIC (A SnarkCap) - Episode 10

Shuk: New year, new episode! Exciting things have been happening, resulting in yet another delay in squeecapping.  But now I hope we are back on track to continue our crazy ride!

I also want to introduce our guest squeecapper, El, who I met in a Discord channel sponsored by the intrepid friend of Thai dramas, AlwaysMeena. El is going to dip her toes into this because of her love of Bomb. Haha, just kidding, El.
Guest El: Hello! Thank you very much for the invitation! I’m so excited << SARCASM!!!! 
I’m doing this to show how much I like Shuk!
Trotwood: I was wondering about that last comment. I wouldn't say these were Bomb-lovin' posts. I mean these are SnarkCaps rather than Squeecaps for a reason.
Kmuse: Getting back into Cubic right now is working out for me. I somehow broke my foot so this is the perfect pick me up and a good excuse to watch something Thai. Also, it puts things in perspective. At least I am not stuck staring on stairs or living with flocked hair. Things c…

“Thank you for letting me work at the House of Lanxiang, JieJie.”

Feeling especially grateful on this turbulent day to have found temporary refuge at her establishment, Feng Zhiwei pressed the hand of her friend Zhuyin with fervor.

“Don’t touch anything!” Tian Gu whispered in alarm.

“Why? Do you think I’ll go up in flames?” Yu Dian whispered back.

But he did pull back his hand that had sneaked forward towards the exquisite books in Donghua Dijun’s shelf. As much as he longed to pull out and bury his nose in Poems of the Lost Summer, power suppression was brutal up here, by far the worst he had ever experienced. Yu Dian felt like he was being crushed by a mountain, just standing was a great struggle, let alone walking.

“You!” Shaowan’s voice boomed from the other side of the corridor. “Moyuan!”

Moyuan had known it was coming. That was the reason he had decided to quietly leave the dueling field and go back to his room and prepare for the celebration. On the one hand, Moyuan had an understanding why his name was being bellowed like this. But on the other, he still did not see what the fuss was about. He had not done anything wrong, had he? And they had won, hadn’t they?

JoAnne:  We've had snow, we've had rain, we've had ice, we've had a legal excuse to eat as much chocolate as we want, and we've had 5 MILLION new dramas start.
kakashi: Surpriiiiiiise. Mark is featured this week. It's because he put on glasses
SakiVI: I'm very sad that things I like end.  Everything feels blah as a result.
Trotwood: I'm chairing a search committee, and I can't watch as much as I want because I need to read through application files. I wasn't much before, but you're definitely not going to see much of me down there. 
Panda: Had an amazing extended weekend. Sadly I am feeling most dreadful today

Feng Zhiwei opened her eyes. Where was she? It seemed to be morning and she was on a bed, only… this looked oddly familiar… The Prince of Chu’s residence?

“Why am I here? Was yesterday a dream?” she murmured.

“What did you do in your dream?” a languid voice she knew all too well said from nearby.

Ashes of Love 香蜜沉沉烬如霜 - Episode 7 (Recap)

kakashi: In the last episode, we had swords. In this episode, we have...a sassy Demon Princess! And much, much more. Read on, my friends.
JoAnne:  That is the look of a princess who understands subtext...or at least it's the look of a woman who knows she's now got two hot guys to play with.
Panda: The Demon Princess is a firm favorite.

Right after stepping into the sanctuary of her chambers and closing the door behind her, Shao Wan let out an extensive sigh that had been building up inside of her for the better part of the long day. She felt nauseous, a feeling intensified by the dull, persistent headache pulsating behind her eyes. She had not eaten any proper food after waking early this morning- there had been little time between meetings. Besides, nothing they served had appealed to her, even just the smell of the spices routinely used in Demon food upset her stomach. For lack of any better options, she had nibbled on dried fruit and sweet, sticky pastry she had washed down with tea, but all it did was make her feel bloated and ungainly. At least she wasn’t throwing up anymore these days, but that was only a small consolation.

kakashi: It's an absolute disaster, I don't even have Chen Kun pictures this week. Oh wait, found one.
JoAnne: It's a good one. I think it will fill the bill.
Panda: Look at that profile!! Mark also had some pretty pics out today, will post in comments :) Wanted to start Trap, but couldn't because any time not spent watching Nirvana in Fire with the hubby, was spent marathoning The Eternal Love 2. I had no idea how much I had missed the Horny prince and season 2 was even more madness! I forwarded all the boring court stuff and laughed myself silly at all the antics. Recommended for a fun, light watch. 
SakiVI: I watched both Painted Skins.  I like the second one better. In the meantime, what's with steadily rising fevers that won't come down without taking both Advil and that arthritis-strength Tylenol together? It was so uncomfortable, and a bit like watching a shipwreck on my thermometer.  Even with meds, I could feel it trying to break through, like I had a
