Ice Fantasy 幻城 - Episode 31 (Recap)
SakiVI: A possible Fire Prince looks gorgeous.
JoAnne: The silver eye thingie looks very dull next to his epaulets.
And yet she won't back off, either. Lan Shang is really rather sneaky.
She's not willing to just step aside. It's very annoying.
See, Shi is awesome.
That does win him a lot of points. I agree. Lan Shang is that person who makes everyone's personal drama about herself, somehow.
We don't actually know yet! I guessed she would, though. She's even gone to barren cold lands for him. But she does bring "The Will of the Fallen" to the Ice King. And remember what that dead guy with the bad hair said about it? It's ultra dangerous. And no, Ice King. It's not "just a legend". What is it with these things and everybody thinking they're "just a legend"?
It's disingenuous of these people who are obsessed with and live by magic to dismiss anything as a legend.
The thing is, I don't think that it's just a blind yes or no for Li Luo. I think she'd sacrifice herself for him, yes, if it would mean something actually beneficial for him. But I don't think she's just going to foolishly do whatever just because she loves him.
Mine are down.
So are mine. This fits her bill 100%.
How tiresome he can be.
Why is Shuo Gang the only Fire Prince who can show himself as a humanoid? Maybe the rest are worse, shudder.
Witness my complete and utter lack of interest in the internal rules of the Firelings.
The more Shuo Gang is beaten up, the better.
I feel so bad for her.
That would have to feel pretty awkward, yep. I wonder if you have a crush on a guy and then find out he's your brother, does the crush immediately wither and die? I hope so, for her sake.
Oh yes, sigh. But before he is crowned, everybody is to show their magical talents (for spy identification, that is). Huang Tuo presents "The Healers' Evergreen Bottle". With the tonic that is in it, you can turn any withered plant into a living plant again. Chao Ya gives him "the Wind Glider Cape". It's a coat that can ... uhm ... fly around by itself? Oookay, I guess there are certain scenarios in which this could be useful? Shi is fly. Baddaboombaddabing! So far, nobody has shown any sign of the spy-powers. Xuan Ta guesses correctly that this means the spy is from among the royal family!
She is so gorgeous.
And shouldn't she know her own Teardrop Charm because magic and all?) They seal off the city and search everywhere, but all they find is something hairy and very fast. Qin Chu follows it outside - and soon finds himself in the middle of an animal cemetery. Someone was hungry, it seems. And then, the hungry thing attacks him! But what is that?! Why is Li Luo there too?! It's a mystery.
Yeah, that's right, a mystery.
Oh he IS nice looking.
Seriously, the Fire Tribe ruddiness does not work with his features. Anyway, he almost gets in, but Xuan Ta recognizes him in time and he gets locked up. Naturally, Shi is quite concerned the Fire Prince might say something about someone's fire magic and makes sure he's the only one getting access to him.
Kasuo just needs any old excuse to be sad.
I'm beginning to think Kasuo makes decisions based on how sad he'll get to be, after.
How uncomfortable for her. Does her clothing turn into the fur, then, and then turn back? That's what it seems like.
Wait 'til Kasuo gets to be sad about THAT.
Hm, Shi must be busy elsewhere, because it's Xuan Ta who is
investigating torturing Shuo Gang! Xuan Ta is in his crazy element. Lian Ji comes in and tells the Saint off for all kinds of things ... mainly, she is pissed he took the remnants of the exploded Teardrop Charm as evidence. She kicks the Saint out, but rather than torturing the Fire Prince, she hears what almost happened and was prevented through the little explosion: she being exposed as the spy! Shuo Gang overheard the chatty fairies talk about the plan to expose the traitor by the magic showcasting and then switched out the Charm.
Wow, look how crazy he looks.
You know, I always take a lot of care with my screenshots.
Of course, Lian Ji wants her real Teardrop Charm back now, but Shuo Gang refuses. After a tiny bit of torture, he says it's in his pocket. It ain't. More torture, and he scream it could be that Xuan Ta took it.
Xuan Ta is so annoying! Stop interfering!
Hint: He won't interfere for much longer......
CommentsYes. So .... what to say? Li Luo is a beast now. I'm laughing so hard.
I basically skipped over the beast bits as much as possible because they were too stupid for me even with things like "The Will of the Fallen" and that weird library around.
Yeah, I, uh, skipped those parts too.
