Moyuan descended along with his Sixteenth Disciple from the clouds as they reached the destination. Their feet met with extraordinarily soft grass and Divine Energy rushed into his lungs.

JoAnne:  I want Keanu Reeves for my boyfriend, but I want the version that doesn't look homeless.
Trotwood: HAHA! I read the first part and thought "I hope she doesn't want the homeless version" and then read rest of sentence. Not watching or doing much but trying to survive this wedding I'm in for my friend's sake. I did finish HIStory3 though.
Ha! That's why we're friends :) A wedding - is it your teacher's wedding? Congrats to her and I hope you make it through alive. Please tell me you don't have to wear stockings.
kakashi: Stockings in the summer is torture and should be forbidden. 
No, I didn't have to wear stockings, but I did have to do the chicken dance in French. So many stories about this wedding.
Panda: Jo, it seems you will have to fight all the (wo)men on the net for Keanu! he is having a major resurgence and I'm. Here. For. It.

From what Nalan had gathered, Bai Qian understood that Luoji had taken off somewhere on urgent business. Having run back and forth, exploring every corner of the Nine Heavens, Nalan and Jiayun had come to the conclusion that they had absolutely no chance to get A-li out while Luoji was present. And because he could be expected back any time, they would have to grasp this opportunity, when he had just left, and rescue the boy as quickly as possible.

Trotwood: I was planning on watching WWW as well this weekend, but there were so many novel translations that came out, and I started watching Super Voice, a Chinese show where 36 male singers from operas and musicals compete for 6 principle positions. All are good, very tense. Eps 1-3 of season 1 are subbed. Each ep is 1.5 hours. I was riveted and anxious the entire time. It's like watching a sporting event. What has everyone been up to?
JoAnne: I spent my whole weekend wondering where you were and what you were doing.
Panda: Hope everyone has seen Always be my Maybe? Ali Wong you sly fox, snogging three prime men. I Approve heartily. Spent the week sleeping, shopping and reading. Bliss
Yes! Loved it! Very funny, very sweet.


Kinou Nani Tabeta/What Did You Eat Yesterday - Episode 8 (Recap)

I was excited to watch this episode because everyone has been saying how this was their favorite episode so far. However, I did not expect to be as moved as I was.  Kinounaniresource posted a link in her blog to an article about the show and its popularity in Japan based on the cooking in it. https://asia.nikkei.com/Life-Arts/Life/Japan-s-latest-celebrity-chef-is-a-gay-lawyer-in-hit-TV-drama I’m not surprised. I’ve made all sorts of food in response to watching this show! Remember that I will add a link to recipe for dishes if I find them.

Yanzhi lowered her arm to break the magic she had been pouring into the butterfly hairpin and took a deep breath.

Bai Qian sighed - she and her friends had taken turns to examine this device. They had realized that while it appeared to be a perfectly ordinary child’s hair ornament, there was some strong enchantment protecting it from any external interferences. And that was about all they had found out about it. There was no carvings, or messages in invisible ink on it, nothing that could give them any useful information.

kakashi: Incredible! I watched something that's not Naruto.
Trotwood: Did you watch all of these shows or only the neandrathal one?
Panda: You know that feeling when you have 10 dramas to start, and yet find yourself rewatching The Wedding Date for whatever reason? Yup. P.S Dermot Mulroney - Hot. But speaking of dramas; I am interested in checking out kGOT, Aide with its 2 smexy leads and the Joseon drama with a bespectacled Thighs!! Hubba hubba.
JoAnne: Yeah, that Thighs picture circulating on TList last week? Stopped me dead in my tracks. Then again, he really never disappoints, does he. We do seem to have a lot of very lovely men (and women! whatever floats your boat!) to watch these days. It's Spring, after all, and the sap is rising....

Kinou Nani Tabeta/What Did You Eat Yesterday - Episode 7 (Recap)

This episode gave us a bunch of fluff, which I think we all deserved after suffering through an episode of awkward Shiro. We don’t get a resolution of any repercussions at work (I’m sure that we will), but we do get to compare/contrast Shiro and Kenji’s relationship with Kohinata and Wataru and some role reversals which causes revelations for both the couple and viewers.

Fengjiu woke up with a start.

She glanced around the tent they had been staying in for the last five days, and then at the unconscious man lying on the pallet.

For five days she had positioned herself at Donghua’s side, had not gone through a meal where she would not see him stir, jump to his side and leave the rest of the food for Si-Ming to finish. But her body was not reacting much to the lack of food or rest; the clarity of her mind had also not been affected at all. Her hand was often clamped securely around Donghua’s; she’d fall asleep monitoring him, and any small movement from him she would feel and wake up almost instantly.

*some passages in this chapter are from the original novel

If Feng Zhiwei was honest, moving closer to Ning Yi was not really necessary. It was warm enough where she was, in that space underneath the blanket that she shared with him, even if her right side was considerably warmer than her left that was only barely covered.

Yet, she considered it.

The reason was, as soon as Ning Yi had somewhat reluctantly fallen into a restless slumber, Feng Zhiwei started to feel very uneasy about the creepy place they were in. Without anything to occupy herself with as she lay idly, she became acutely aware of strange sounds echoing through the large hall, a moaning and sighing, soft, but very mournful, and when she strained her senses, she even thought she heard footsteps behind the panels.

Feng Zhiwei decidedly did not like ghosts.

So, when the fire in one of the basins suddenly let out a loud pop, sending a flare of…
