Mo Yuan first thought his ears were playing tricks on him because just like his vision which went from black to much too bright, the sound came and went, leaving him in a strange and eerie silence before plunging him into brain-piercing noise again. But there was no denying it, there she stood, her frail, powerless, female form barely hidden by Lian Song’s appearance altering spell, her head held high, defiance and a trace of fear on her face.

Eiffel Tower Sightings - First Half of 2018

Hello everyone!

There haven't been as many multiple ET sightings for 2018. Maybe Asian Entertainment knows that Shuk is tracking these, and have decided to hide them inside the dusty corners of the prop room. Even so, ET's will not be denied!


First, the usual non-drama sightings.  This is a miniature Tower in Apodaca, Mexico, compliments of Elena, who lives nearby.
Chansung from 2pm visited Paris this year.
A Daiso shop from Cheryl in Seattle.


And now, for our drama Eiffel Towers! Eighteen shows total this time. It's a good haul!
Advance Bravely 2017 (Mainland China)
Suits 2018 (South Korea)
Khun Mae Suam Roy 2018 (Thailand)
Home Sweet Home 2017 (Taiwan)
Rak Kan Panlawan 2018 (Thailand)
Happy Sisters 2018 (South Korea)
Suparburoot Chutathep - Pornwaruj 2013 (Thailand)
Two of these are the same ET, but I like the angle of the two pictures.

Naughty bits alert!!

Gun Gun’s first time had been a total disaster. Much too drunk to be in control of anything, it had been over the moment he clumsily thrust into the equally drunk Demon woman. Li-Ge, upon seeing the dejection on his face afterwards, had patted his back like a benevolent uncle and had said, almost choking on suppressed laughter: “Not to worry, you just need more practice.”

“May I ask you a personal question, Lord Donghua?” said Bai Qian as she put her black chess piece on the board.

BG: Shinpen Keigonin/ Personal Bodyguard - Episode 7 (Recap)

Image
Trotwood: I apologize for the delay in this recap.
kakashi: And I apologize for taking so long to comment. 
Panda: I apologize for taking even longer to comment. I still have not fully settled in/adjusted to my new busy schedule.
I actually haven’t been as busy as I have in the past; it’s more because I didn’t want to face this episode. As I said to my older daughter, what I really want to say here is the following:
"Episode 7 was a perfect hour of television until the last minute. I actually thought, 'This is perfect' to myself while watching--those actual words. Everything just seemed to work perfectly like when you are playing with a team and things just go seamlessly whether it’s on the field or on an assembly line. Then something painful happened in the last minute. I felt betrayed—slapped and punched. I am still hurt. The end."
Instead, I’m going to keep going and give you what I thought was going to be the briefest recap that I’ve ever done. I didn't think …

Jo: I took a couple days off this week so my sense of time is all messed up.  It feels like the things I watched at the beginning of the week were from last week and so now I feel like I'm behind and didn't watch this week's shows. Is extra time supposed to work that way? I don't think so...
Trotwood: I was wondering why you put "finale" after Meet Me @1006 when the finale was last week and I wrote about it last week. Maybe you are on just a different space-time continuum. I, on the other hand, have been working a large number of hours and that coupled with the sun not going down until really late makes me completely confused about time. Nothing much to report from me. I know both Panda and Kakashi are really busy, so it may be a heavy Jo Rawr this week.
kakashi: It can't be Monday again, can it?! 
SakiVI: Yes, and I've been away so long, am I even on the right purple?
Also, now that I've finished Secrets of the Three Kingdoms, I have nothing to wat…

Some men were born fighters. Either because they had no other choice than use their fists to survive or because their fists itched to be used for other things than holding a brush.

Mo Yuan was not one of those men. His hands were delicate, the long fingers more naturally made for drawing fine patterns and plucking the zither than clutching a sword. Had he been left entirely to himself, he would have chosen to spend his days and nights studying and would have striven to capture the beauty of his father's creation through music.

“You agreed.”

Mo Yuan nodded.

“Without negotiating.”

Mo Yuan nodded again.

“And he’s going to choose all your adversaries without letting you know who or what they are.”

Mo Yuan nodded for a third time.

A steaming bowl of radish lamb soup made nary a sound as it was gently placed in front of Mei Lin, out of reach of Qian Ling’s chubby hands. Mei Lin followed the strong, elegant fingers wrapped around the soup bowl to the arms covered in simple long-sleeved black tunic which in turn made perfect contrast to its owner’s silvery hair.

His brows furrowed as he transferred a ladle-full of soup into a smaller serving bowl. “Here, blow on it before letting Ling’er taste it,” he said in that smooth and deep voice of his, calm and soothing like little waves melting on a peaceful beach, as he pushed the bowl beside the chicken and ginger congee Mei Lin had been feeding the baby. She nodded and carefully picked up some of the liquid using Qian Ling’s tiny spoon.

JoAnne: Are you all as surprised and pleased as I am at the variety of decent shows airing right now? And - surprising twist - are you watching as slowly as I am? You could usually tell how much I liked a show by whether I stayed current with it. These days I really only do that with one or two at a time and often that's connected to whether the subs are fast, not whether it's my favorite show. I don't like having to hunt down shows!
Trotwood: I feel as though my drama watching is down to a crawl. It's like I missed the bus that all the new shows were on and decided rather than rushing to take the next bus or hail a cab to catch up, I've decided to just stop and have a snack at the nice little cafe on the corner. 
So you decided to take...the Subway?kakashi: I missed the bus and then the NEXT one too. And then, while pondering what to do, another one went by. So I might just walk somewhere. 
Panda: Holla! I'm rushed off my feet. I'm in a new job, new s…

“I think High God Mo Yuan is about to fall off his horse,” Yue observed matter-of-factly.

Shao Wan whimpered. Somebody wake him up!

They were not the only ones who noticed. The Celestial Prince and the Green Lord Yu Dian interrupted their amiable chatter about New Songs from the Jade Terrace to stare at Mo Yuan, who was tilting to the side ever so slowly.

Hearing his steady deep breathing next to her should have been soothing, but Shao Wan’s heart was racing so much she thought it was going to burst forth and quiver in all its excitement above them. His fingers had found hers and interlaced with them right before he fell asleep and their gentle warmth seeped into her body, setting everything inside on fire.

How could he just sleep?

“It would mean a lot to you if you could touch her, wouldn’t it?” Zhe Yan had smirked at them not too long ago. “Talking may be less important, I’d say.”

Before that, he and Donghua had complained endlessly about how much they hated to sleep in the open and that they really regretted coming here over something so trivial as breaking the Laws of the Universe for the most annoying Phoenix in existence.

“Why do you think I never go to war anymore,” Zhe Yan had said, “I abhor the bugs and the hard grounds. I’m too old for camping adventures. I ne…

It was evening when she regained consciousness.

Huo Zheng slowly got up from bed and looked around the confines of the dark hut, her hand crawling over the space until it found A-Li’s cold arm. The incense that Lu Dongbin had lit for his soul-searching ritual had long been extinguished but its scent — that of wild jasmine irreverently blooming during hot summer nights— clung to the air, unsettling her.

Trotwood: I had planned to watch and watch and watch things now that the students are gone, but I find myself avoiding recapping ep 7 of BG (because it's painful) and rewatching eps of Happy Sisters to just watch the Perfect Boyfriend bits (seriously, these are worth it). I even rewatched Love for a Thousand More just to see Jang Ki Young because I just can't bear the pain of Come and Hug Me. Hmm. I'm thinking it's time for a Shoot for the Stars rewatch, but I'm afraid it's so old no one has it anymore. Sigh. I need comfort food.
JoAnne: Watch something fun and easy, then, like Secretary Kim. There's a lot of choice out there right now for good shows, depending on what you're looking for. And did you hear? Season 2 of Waikiki is a go! I wonder if our girl Sol will be back, though - I guess it depends where they pick up and if she can still be a baby...she's standing now but not quite walking, going by her Instagram.
kakashi: Celebrating Twu Wuv. …

Rich Family's Son - Episodes 23&24 (KimJiCap)

kakashi: This is somehow the longest drama I've ever watched and this would basically only be episode 12. Maybe it's really special? It enthralls by being extremely boring? Yes, Jo, am selling this really well!
JoAnne: You sure are! I think it feels long because we're making no attempt to keep up with the episodes, though. I'm finding that it's easy to lose interest that way, but then again, when I do watch an episode I find some little thing, sometimes.
Don't know how we used to do this - keep up with episodes!!!

“Get up.” The voice was ice cold and dangerous and felt just like a slap in the face.

“W…what…?”

“Get up, I said and get dressed. Now.”

Yu Dian recognized the suppressed fury, even when the face showed no emotion, even if it was very early and he was struggling to wake up from a pleasant dream; he knew to comply without resistance, his head down, fists hidden, because knowing when to be defiant and when not was a skill he had honed to perfection.

Lu Dongbin, please save me.

Those were the last words A-Li had spoken before he threw up a copious amount of blood and collapsed unconscious against Huo Zheng about a week ago.

She had been too amazed with their mode of transport — flying over trees, rivers, hills and mountains — that she had failed to notice at the time that A-Li was not alright. She had been just too glad to still be alive — that A-Li was alive — that she had allowed herself to be distracted from the fact that she had her arms around a patient herself.
