Love & Destiny 三生三世宸汐缘 - Episode 58 (Recap)

kakashi: Time to lay eggs! Or do they need to be made first? I'm a little confused about the technicalities. This episode starts sweet and ends bitter. JoAnne:  I really prefer it the other way around.

From Qingqiu, Bai Qian cloud-jumped straight back to the gates of Kunlun, despite knowing that Moyuan’s meditation still had not completed.

kakashi: No more home office for me, starting August 3rd. I don't wanna.
Trotwood: All our offices are supposed to be "ready" by August 15. But because of the social distancing requirements, my admin and I can't be in there at the same time and receive guests, so we are going to divide up the week between us. Have to wait to see what the local schools do before we can do our final schedule though. I'm fine only going in to sign documents once every other week, but I'm not ready for every day. JoAnne:  We've been phasing people back in at work, very slowly and with staggered schedules and enhanced protocols for distancing and cleaning - but my group is part of Phase 4 and will likely be one of the very last within the phase since there's nothing we can't do remotely.  It might even be the New Year.  I've already spoken to my boss, casually, about my reluctance to return given some chronic health conditions, and I'm confident I'll still b…

Bai Qian hadn’t realized how much she had missed Kunlun until she stepped foot back into its Grand Hall. While the memory of what had taken place the last time she’d been here was clear in her mind, it felt as though it had been ages. The pulse of the mountain beat through her, the night breeze embracing her, as gentle as the hand that had held hers all the way back.

“Is something the matter?” Moyuan said.

“No,” she shook her head. “I just didn’t think I’d be back here so soon.”

“Seventeenth,” he reached for her loose hair strand. “I…”

“SEVENTEENTH!” A voice boomed from the other side of the hall. “Is that you, Seventeenth!”

Bai Qian quipped in that direction. Her hands flew to her mouth and she almost jumped.

“Sixteenth Senior!”

She ran toward him and they met with a bone-crushing hug that lasted almost a minute. Breaking apart, Zilan grasped her shoulders with both hands, his eyes wide with bewilderm…

kakashi: I have trouble keeping up with what day it is. Time moves incredibly fast, dammit. I watched BBC's The Musketeers, it's not exactly a good show, but the boys are really cute and very manly.
Panda: Hola! I am still only watching Midsomer Murders (now on season 7) with a sprinkling of movies here and there. Saw The Old Guard on Netflix starring Charlize and Hot Jafar and it was not bad :) I keep writing down series to start; Issy has me intrigued about Song of Glory, Feather has recommended Love in Between, I have my gargantuan TBW pile and yet... SIGH. Hope everyone is staying safe. Love 
Sometimes I know when it is.  I wake up, clean up, pour coffee, open laptop, answer emails, do things.  It doesn't really matter what day it is.  If it's nice I sit outside a bit.  Some of my neighbors are working a couple days in the office and a couple days at home so that's not really a clue, if they're around.  I'd say it's nice that we're back to experi…

Bai Qian lingered in the pond-sized marble bathtub, watching bubbles float about in midair aimlessly.

Perhaps it was nervousness, perhaps it was spite -- Bai Qian didn’t know which was keeping her from running to the Guest Hall to see him right away.

But mostly… she mostly did not want to appear in front of him looking like she had skipped meals and lost sleep. What an idiotic wreck she had been -- he was here, alive and unhurt. Also…

How can I even begin to explain to him what happened to the Demon Queen? Bai Qian sighed, eyes following the little sprite’s fluttering wings back and forth in the room. Maybe Yehua had explained; still, she had been there, had watched her jump into the golden fire. And all of that… had been for nothing.

When Bai Qian arrived at the Guest Hall, a flock of women was standing not too far from the door, both attendants and soldiers, chattering excitedly.

“Did you se…

kakashi: This episode proves that GoW does not have ONE romantic bone in his body. Good for him that he's so handsome at least.
JoAnne: Clearly the prototype for the handsome but dorky nerd. Which is an approved type here at PotUp, of course.

kakashi: I'm on my way to the mountains!....... I'm here! (sorry, my fault for posting so late :)
JoAnne:  Yay!  That is excellent news for so many reasons! 
Panda: Fantastic news K! Enjoy!! I'm trying to be faithful to Cardio July ( something I and pals coined) to beath the Covid bulge. LOL. I'm also tearing through Midsomer Murders which I loooove.
Trotwood: I'm so glad that you are able to get away, Kakashi. Sigh. I had lost half inches in places in June, but all the ham I've been eating has put them back. Working an extra job isn't helping.But the big news this week in my drama world was how a drama made in one country "fixed" a hated ending for a drama made in another country! Pp

kakashi: I just realize we are only a few episodes away from the end ... and haven't had THE SHECKS! I think we need it. No more virginal shyness, please! Ah, but first... Queen Time.
JoAnne:  She's so pretty, even with radioactive sperm shooting out of her head.

Bai Qian woke up wondering why she was not dead yet, pain cascading from her right arm to the rest of her body. There was not an inch of her that didn’t hurt. Immediately she gripped the sheet beneath her hand tightly and took a deep breath through her nose. Breathing hurt too.

Trotwood: Helloooo! Is anyone out there? Once again not watching a lot. The days seemed to meld into one another, and I'm having difficulty distinguishing days. I picked up a new drama, but nothing is replacing Midnight Pop-Up Bar right now.
kakashi: I'm kinda here, Trot! Missing the mountains... my mom might be able to leave the hospital next week so it's possible we might go up there for a while. I'd love to. Every additional day with her feels like a gift. Meanwhile, Covid-19 still sucks. And I'm still reading Historical Romance books like crazy. I make myself laugh.

The first sight of the verdant hills of Qing Qiu, teeming with multicolor flowers and blessed insects as seen past the crescent moon-shaped mouth of the Eastern Valley, triggered a multitude of happy memories every time Li stepped foot in the place.

kakashi: We move on, swiftly towards something... could it be the end? The end of suffering? The end of love? The end of... meandering storytelling?
JoAnne:  This would be the only area where I would accept the end of social distancing.

The courtyard was quiet. The guests had all left.

Smoke rose from their teacups as they sat opposite of one another, going on with another game. Moyuan lifted his own cup, tasted the liquid once and put it back down. It could be too bitter, or too plain, he would not know.
