The powers of the dragon roared in his blood as he finally got to kiss her like he had wanted to for so long… it was a possessive kiss:  to show her how much he wanted her - a hungry kiss: to convey that he meant to feast on her - a tender kiss: to express that for all his needs, he wanted to cherish her for as long as was given to them.

kakashi: It continues.
JoAnne: And we...sort of liked it. I know! I'm still reeling from shock.

“And this… this is the site where the Demon Ancestor’s funeral pyre was erected,” Yu Dian said in his melodious voice that seemed perfect for singing tragic ballads. “It’s not far from here to the Obsidian Palace, you will be able to rest soon.”

Rich Family's Son - Episode 1 (KimJiCap)

kakashi: The description of this drama ("Lee Gwang-Jae (Kim Ji-Hoon) is the son of a rich family and he is immature. His father dies and leaves behind large debts. For his father's honor, Lee Gwang-Jae struggles to pay off his debt. Kim Young-Ha (Kim Joo-Hyun) with her bright and positive personality supports Lee Gwang-Jae") makes me weep. This is going to be bad. And 50 episodes long! The good news: each episode is ONLY around 30 MINUTES (the not so good news - there are four of those each Sunday). Wish me luck.
JoAnne: There is no such thing as luck. It is fated that we will suffer because Kim Ji Hoon picks terrible dramas, so that's all there is to it. We will suffer. But out of suffering comes great art (and some of our best recaps.)
Trotwood: (rushing in out of breath) The things we do for Kim Ji-Hoon. I think we should or at least Kakashi should get some sort of prize. I know there are probably fans of his who love him and watch everything he is in thinking h…

Trotwood: This week sees a bunch of finales, for which I am grateful because I don't think I could keep up with this rate of drama watching. From what I'm hearing and feeling there is a wide range of feelings about these endings: love, bewilderment, detachment, and rage. But we are talking about dramas here. There's always a lot of rage at endings. "God's Gift: 14 Days," anyone?
SakiVI: As I was saying last night on social media, one reason I have been feeling reluctant to start kdramas this new cycle is because of the annoying way the characters never speak up.  They just let whoever else rant at them and I feel so frustrated. Also, I am still sick. So annoying for me.  But a lot of tv does get watched!
kakashi: Hey, wazzup! Can't believe a week has passed?! Anyhow, darlings, we're fast approaching 12 Million page views!

“Have you seen Mo Yuan?”

“W…why?” to her annoyance, Shao Wan felt herself blush. Had they finally found out about the kiss? She had been expecting their teasing to start for quite a while, but nothing so far. She searched Donghua and Zhe Yan’s faces, but she only saw concern there, no mockery. And… she realized there was something like guilt in Donghua’s. Very strange.

As she stayed under the shade of the grove’s oldest Peach Tree while her steed gobbled on a nasty diet of creepy crawlies that it had retrieved from a rotting tree not far away from where they sat, she frowned at the picturesque scene in front of her. It was always a perplexing sight to see someone who had the power to level down worlds tend to a farm. But her Mother did love to cultivate plants, a passion she and her Brother had picked up on— her Brother, mostly, because he was such a sycophant. By stringing so close to Mother, her toady Brother also gained the favor of their herbalist First Uncle. Just looking at him now as he excitedly showed a sapling to their Mother was enough to make her want to gag.

Five hundred. Five hundred one… five hundred two… five hundred three…

With a groan, Shao Wan straightened her back and then winced when her spine cracked loudly, not once, but twice, each bang as loud as thunder in her ears.

kakashi: Drama, you are too cruel TT__________________TT
Panda: Episode that made me place Cao Cao firmly and forever in the shit list. Shit List!!
JoAnne:  I suppose we were lucky to have him be somewhat ambiguous even this long.  I definitely enjoyed debating myself on whether he was a misunderstood good guy or whether he was just not YET a really bad guy.

JoAnne:  Oops I forgot to start a RAWR
Trotwood: I just thought you were in shock after taking my challenge of "Really Jo, you are watching nearly every show on the planet" and realized you are currently watching 18. I counted and I have far too many (21) that I want to be watching, and that isn't even counting the upcomimg shows (like Pretty Noona Brings me Food) for which I'm excitedly waiting. I'm dropping and/or not starting a bunch. I'll just have to read about them here.
SakiVI: I am just not interested in any of these new shows, save for Untouchable Lovers, and have instead been marathoning Schitt's Creek.  It's hilarious. 
panda: Sick, so will be very pithy

The wind pulled on the candle’s flame, like a lover in pursuit, slicing through thick, pungent air. Steeped in silence, the only sound audible in that bedchamber were the faint crackles produced by the wicks that remained burning. A marked contrast from the mayhem ensuing in her head.

Have I gone mad? Have I contracted an illness? Has my body been taken over? What kind of beastly thing did I do just now?!

Mo Yuan already knew he had a big problem - even when that problem did not stand in front of him, so angry that the air crackled with her fury.

“You!” she fumed and stabbed her index finger into his face. “You!”

She was gone when he woke up.

A-Li figured he must have slept the sleep of the dead. How Huo Zheng had crossed over his body to the floor, gotten dressed and left their room — all without waking him up — was beyond him. She was indeed very much like a cat.

As he hurriedly got dressed, he happened to walk by the table and saw a tied scroll on top of it. A-Li picked it up but, upon seeing the characters that indicated it was the ledger on which Huo Zheng had recorded a written account of her dreams, he placed it back down and left for the Duchess’ hall.

Many attendants waited right outside the steps that led to the door along with a frantic-looking Duke, who wordlessly nodded to acknowledge his presence.

“How is the Duchess?” He quietly asked Cai Jin who, like him, stood behind the Duke.

“We were told it would be any moment now, but the Duchess has stopped making any sounds. I wonder what is happening ins…

The day had just broken, the sunrise casting a purple hue in the sky when Mo Yuan and Eighteenth prepared to set forth from Kunlun. Although he had told Chang San not to bother with a send off for him, the latter had not heeded his words and bowed deeply before him.

“Rise, Chang Shan,” Mo Yuan repeated for the third time.

“Shifu, I will keep Kunlun exactly how you left it, awaiting your return,” his second disciple said earnestly.

With a small smile, Mo Yuan shook his head. “No. You have kept the place running for the last hundred years. You know all of Kunlun’s secrets. I grant you free rein to implement whatever changes you have in mind.”

“But Shifu-”

“Chang Shan, I do not know when I will be back. I plan my studies in the Demon realm to be extensive and they may lead me to other places afterwards. I also know well what you are capable of, and I place Kunlun in your hands with absolutely no reservations.”

Trotwood: Back from a conference to drive into blizzard, so have some drama watching time! Not much but more than last week. March is not playing around anywhere it seems. There's snow storms all over the northern hemisphere. Jo, are you really going to watch all of these new dramas? It's like they are procreating.

JoAnne: Hell, no. Here's the process: I list all the ones I either think someone might watch or that I know someone is watching, from Mon-Tues shows right on through to the weekend. I like them to be in order. Anything without an entry under it gets deleted before posting. If it becomes clear that no one is watching, I don't even include anymore. And then you guys will add things that you're watching that I didn't put already. (So readers, what she means is that there are a lot of dramas on this draft post. Even more than what you see in the final version.)

Every year on the 4th of May, Donghua Dijun felt a strange, half pleasant, half unpleasant sensation. In a life as long as his, particular points in time hardly play a role, but the 4th of May was different. Maybe it was because of the enraptured faces of the newly ascended passing through Qing Yun Hall on the morrow, a reminder for someone like him what a great blessing immortality was. Or maybe it was because this celebration of new immortal life reminded him so keenly of death, the great Nothingness, the inevitable end.

As she climbed up the stairs to the hut, Mei Lin reminded herself that she was only there out of concern to tend to Gun Gun’s wound. She would treat and leave him, immediately!

She held on to her basket, and looked around the simple and almost bare space that Li-Gē and Gun Gun had made for themselves.

In the corner, to the right, was a stand with an empty copper basin and a pitcher of water tucked below. Beside that was a makeshift shelf. It held an assortment of towels, clothes and even tools which were organized in a way that only men could understand.

“What are you two doing?” Shao Wan put her chin over Zhe Yan’s shoulder. Writing a list? How very strange. But way better than studying in any case. She settled down between Donghua and Zhe Yan cross-legged, ready to be entertained.

Bai Qian couldn’t figure out what was happening. After being kissed by that caveman, her brain seemed to have congealed into a block of silken tofu.

She had been decidedly dragged out of that courtyard, out of Fenyi Palace and out onto the bustling streets of town by a certain master whose grip was like an iron shackle on her wrist, pulling her along at a determined pace. But why?

Everything about winter seemed drab and gloomy. Most of the trees were bare, their trunks and branches offering no contrast to the dull brown ground underfoot. Even the sticks and stones scattered over the ground looked sad and forlorn.

“Virtue (de 德), is cultivated through sincere practice and acting with high integrity throughout one’s life. The cultivation of de is what creates the foundation upon which all other cultivation depends. Without de, ascension is not possible.”

“But how?”

“Ah… this is the simplest yet the hardest question a student can ask the teacher. How to walk the right path, always? You must practice sincerity with every step, with every breath you take… you must make it your only state of mind.”
