JoAnne: Remember how I couldn't figure out how they'd make that happen? It was so simple, in the end.
I had assumed, not sure why, that he'd have known about the Si Yin/Bai Qian situation all along. Also, the more I look at him, the more I think his face is a cross between Mei Chang Su and David Tennant/Dr. Who.
In a close up of his outfit, I notice that Li Jing is basically wearing the Chinese fantasy version of a track suit. I also notice that he hasn't aged a day, and wonder if he's still enthusiastically trying to get someone pregnant, and whether his palace is taking applications for that position.
(you don't have to tell me twice!) and the Tall God walks to the front of the school. The Fox Princess follows (no, it doesn't help if you try to hide behind the door, sweetie). Here, he meets Si Ming and tells him he finally understands: the seal wasn't permanent, but they lucked out. A mysterious lady took care of it. Dijun very much suspects it was "that young lady's aunt". But how did she get this spell?
Gah! It's so close to the tip of his tongue that we can all taste it!
There was a lot of cute here.
He's the supreme God, right? or was? He better be smart.
I'll tell you what's delicious. That little grin of his, that's what's delicious.
That mountain is getting pretty crowded. The Beast is there, now Bai Qian is there. Any minute now, Ye Hua is going to be there. Can we just throw a party?
There you go, Ye Hua. Show us what you're working with.
And she just rolls over and goes to sleep. I'd like to know where the linens and clothing have come from. That hut was clearly open to the elements (still is) and just as clearly abandoned. Anything in it should be filthy rags.
Does everyone have an animal spirit?
Favorite part of the episode, coming up.
Well you did just call him the Snake Prince.
She decides to take care of the snake - he scoffs at that; why would he need that? - because the poor woman is lonely. He is annoyed until he sees the Fan on the table. What is that doing in the hands of a mortal?
For a snake face that is pretty damn cute.
Xuan Nu lite, you watch. I see it coming.
Resist, you idiot. It's a trap.
His running commentary for the next few minutes is the best thing ever. This damn show has me shipping a girl and a pissy snake. What the hell!
His outrage at her familiarity was absolutely hilarious, because he certainly intends to sound like his dignity has been insulted but he actually just sounds like a flustered boy.
I was wondering who she was.
Ugh! How frustrating!
CommentsI love that they met. I love that she met him as "snake", which is actually a miniature dragon. I love that she talks to him and he is totally rattled. I love that she cannot hear him. I love how much she likes this beautiful snake. I love her character. I love everything about this.
Me too! After the recent sadness, this is lighthearted and funny and refreshing.
I also love the FengDijun side ship. I just like to see him on screen (I keep gasping at his height) and it doesn't hurt that their interactions, in particular, are really witty.
I keep meaning to look him up in a real life. He is one tall skinny dude with super clear skin, I bet he's a model. Hmm. Vengo Gao, birth name Gao Weiguang. Sometimes yes, sometimes meh.
