Novoland: The Castle In The Sky 九州·天空城 - Episode 6 (Recap)
JoAnne: I really miss Wingkind Emperor, sigh. I need to start Wuxin sooner rather than later even if he's not the main guy.
SakiVI: cohabitation is how people get closer, according to the patriarch in one daily drama that I'm watching.
I think deep down WKE is a puppy, just - maybe one that bites sometimes.
It only takes one bite to be a bad dog.
At least twenty, and I don't think her son is ugly. He's just not as appealing as WKE. I especially like his nose, though.
Tingjun's nose is a delight. And both these middle-aged people are freaking nuts. I seriously think he's enjoying sitting there like that.
It's so S&M. Tingjun asks about the reason he was given the Corroding Boner and yes, Jishu did it to him because he knew his daughter was the Shooting God Flower Power. And that God must NEVER fall in love with anyone. Otherwise, a great harm will come to both of them. Uh-oh.
Then why not cast a spell so that the guy wouldn't fall in love? Why let them be together all the time, which basically encourages them to become close, and then make it so that when they DO, it's the most painful thing ever? Sidenote: That head piece always makes me think a big mechanical spider is resting on his manbun.
If the daughter is the Shooting God Flower Power, then she is the one who shouldn't fall in love, and who should get the Corroding Boner.
Because basically they're birds.
Doesn't he look like he'd feel really warm and solid? You know, not bony, but with a good solid sheet of comfy muscle and padding all over? Tingjun looks bony.
Agreed. For a good cuddle, I'd go to Tianyi.
It's that bird diet.
I really do not have these names straight. But in any event, she's the Goddess, someone else is the God, it takes two to tango, but tangoing leads to death? Do I have that straight? And oh - if there's a Goddess but no God, there's no problem. She just shoots her pollen out all over and the Wingkind fly another 100 years?
She needs the god for the pollen, I think.
I don't actually like him.
I dislike him a lot.
There is also a prophecy or something, pointing to the location of the Yang Amulet. It says: "Shadows will rise from the extinguished light. Tears will melt the cinnabar. The Flying Flower returns to earth, on the string of Heaven". Good luck, Tingjun.
Well that's just as clear as mud, isn't it?
I'll just focus on the nose.
Great back up in case your Corroding Boner doesn't work.
A timely reminder that he is, after all, a teenager.
How has he ruined Tianyi's life?
He looks so young there, our delicious little WKE. I wonder, does China think he's as hot as we do?
He's getting lead roles, so probably.
Poor man, he is sick! He's coughing! Oh, I know how men are when they're sick and he seems no different. She grabs his hand to get him to join her for something warm - and then realizes he has several cuts on his fingers. She laughs at his dirty state ... eand then realizes he cooked for the first time in his life, for her! and ventures to put bandages on his fingers. He calls it "ugly" (of course) and her unwomanly, but the truth is, he is quite delighted. And then, he offers her a spot in his harem as his consort (seeing how nobody wants to marry her). Haha, as if.
Meanwhile, his heart is in his throat because omg, does he want her bad.
He practices his whip after this. (Is that what they're calling it these days? I guess it's better than wrestling alone with the sword fairies or whatever it was in IF.)
Fuling takes issue (his hands! the wounds!) but he tells her he needs to practice day and night to be good at this. He has a point. The conversation shifts to his father, whom he obviously hates. Or not really, but he thinks he hates him. They sit down and she talks about her own father and how she misses him, despite how difficult living with him was ... and then tells Feng Tianyi that she has seen through him. He actually has a good heart and just pretends to be evil. He adds that he does not want to get close to people, because that makes you vulnerable. People who know him know what kind of person he is - and the others, he doesn't care about.
The plight of the lonely royal.
Prince Harry probably complains about this every day.
Marveling about whether she is a person who knows him or a person he doesn't care about gives him pause ... and there is a moment of charged silence between them, until Chishu, the mechanical glitter-farting butterfly, turns up. The message from Tingjun is about her father, who is, so the Prince, doing fine. The mention of Tingjun and the sight of the glitter-butterfly are a sure way to change Tiangyi's mood COMPLETELY, haha.
His mission in life is to destroy that kid. That was true even before they had a girl to fight over.
For a minute earlier I did think it might happen but you're right, I really don't want it to.
Oh this was the episode where I thought they'd maybe become friends, haha.
She's so pretty. Too bad she's dead inside.
That was hilarious. She should have just pushed him; he's really begging for an opportunity to get all up in her face, and if they're physical with each other how long will it really be before there are some really spectacular kisses?
I don't imagine it would be possible to just lie next to him. No, indeed.
CommentsYou can't fool us, handsome Emperor! We know that you care and everyone who cares to look will know it too! Of course you're jealous of "Brother Tingjun", who has Fuling's heart and trust. It will be hard for the Emperor to give up on his inbred distrust of people. His father taught him not to depend on anyone and not to let his guard down (we do not know any details yet, but it seems that ruling over the Wingkind territory is no piece of cake), and I think this is how this boy survived after his father's death. Fuling is really dangerous to this side of him.
That is true, but part of what makes it so enjoyable for us. Forbidden love! Except none of us care a fig about Tingjun's forbidden love, actually, except to think it was a particularly nasty trick of Jishu's.
Yes, yes, tortured hero and all.
Of course, love will conquer all (maybe), but there are a few ominous things said in this episode that point to the opposite of smooth romance. The Goddess cannot fall in love? Okay, then be careful, you two. Fuling is not in love with him yet - he is too nasty to her still - but she has already pierced his defensive armor. She has seen through his act and they're already becoming friends. But it's pretty obvious that he feels something he has not felt before and if we believe him when he says he always gets what he wants, then I foresee that he will get this woman. Only that getting her will forever change him and I am feeling wary about that.
I want him to get her but then again... I like him when he's a bit of a jerk. I think I'm fine with them just doing the cat and mouse game for oh, 30, 40 years. With maybe occasionally the cat catching the mouse and taking it away for a long weekend.
If the Goddess cannot fall in love, then what happens to Wingkind?
