Fanfiction: The Moon Mirror (Pojing & Bai Qian Alternative Ending) - Chapter 1 (Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms 三生三世十里桃花)

Image
Chapter 1  written by LalaLoop edited by Kakashi     consulting by Bunny * This chapter takes place after the chess game at Shaowan’s mortal cottage at the end of chapter 10 part 5 of Moyuan and Bai Qian , following Bai Qian’s escape from the Arctic Prison . When Bai Qian woke from her uncomfortable rest, her neck slightly hurt. She had dozed off at the table in the front yard, right on the wooden chessboard, Moyuan’s heavy coat spread over her. It was still dark, but by the chirping sounds around, Bai Qian knew it wouldn’t be long until the sun rose. She sat up, massaged her neck and glanced around. Maybe Moyuan had gone for a walk like he always did? The cottage’s front door creaked open and Pojing quietly stepped out. Bai Qian let out a long sigh and removed the coat. It was time to leave. “Where is the God of War?” Pojing asked as he walked over to her. “I don’t know,” she cast another look around. Was he not even going to say goodbye? “We’ll leave when

Trotwood: I know there are a lot of new shows coming out, and I apologize for not watching much or watching things other people are watching. I'm just trying to get everyone safely through to the end of the semester. I'm going to be honest. I'd rather not "re-open" anything if all it's going to mean is more shootings and more COVID. Is anyone watching Lee Je Hoon's new drama, Taxi Driver ? It also has Esom whom I always love even when I dislike the drama she is in. The synopsis is right up my alley. I didn't have time to start it this week, which means that I probably won't get to it. People either seem to love it or hate it. kakashi: Heard people bitch about Taxi Driver, that's all :D - hey, so it's Tuesday again. I'm very tired. The weather is crazy, 20°C one day, 0°C the next .

Trotwood: COVID cases are rising in my state and around the US. We saw the largest numbers of positives last week that we have had since the pandemic began. I'm guessing we will see even more in the next two weeks because people went home for the holidays (the week before Passover and this past weekend Easter). I'm exhausted--being leader of testing logistics team, public relations, and community education was pretty tough last week. The reviews are going to be sparse. Is anyone watching the Chinese dramas Love is Science or Unusual Idol Love  or Dilraba's new one,  The Long Ballad ? I even heard that Ivy Chen has one out, but I don't think it's subbed. Is anyone still watching Mouse and/or Beyond Evil ? Which one is the better choice for thriller/suspense fans? I'm going to keep up with the new tradition of posting posters from dramas that I will probably never get to watch here unless someone has a better idea for a photo. The Long Ballad

Trotwood: More and more shows are popping up, and I really have given up. Thanks to Kakashi for the post about the cancellation of Joseon Exorcist and lessons about not making assumptions. It looks like historical controversies are hitting another drama even before it airs. But we shouldn't complain as viewers because there are just so many dramas coming out and so many that are being subbed. Thanks to subbers the world over for giving us so much content from which to choose. Zhang Han has another show airing now-- One Boat, One World -- with thirteen episodes out already. I'm almost relieved that no one has subbed that one yet. Anyone watching? Anyone watching Palace of Devotion ? Can someone tell me (with spoilers blocking on) what happened in the time traveling Times ? One Boat, One World poster kakashi: I'm in one of those time loops again where time flies by and nothing ever happens. It's very warm and very pollen polluted here. I keep watching the anime Seven

Joseon Exorcist Cancelled... why oh why? (A Thread)

Oy vey, here I was ready to start watching a Kdrama again after so many months and what happened?! It got cancelled after only two episodes. As Western social media erupts in disbelief and anger, I sit here and think: "I get it".

Chapter 21 - White Forest  written by LalaLoop edited by Kakashi     consulting by Bunny For a long while, he had been nothing but a shadow. A spirit wandering back and forth in a pitch black tunnel, unable to see his own shape. Perhaps he had been walking in circles. All he knew was that he had asked to be imprisoned here. It had been his choice. There were distant familiar voices. He racked his brain, whose were they? There were tears – he felt them – blazing flames, prickling cold, and the consistent feel of someone’s skin against his own. An invisible hand was firm around his wrist, not letting go. No one was there, of course. He strode back and forth, feeling the air around. There was no one. Whose presence was it that he felt? It struck him that he remembered nothing of his life before this tunnel. Was this the beginning or the end? Somewhere in the void of his memory was a trace of happiness, a joy intertwined with agony. I must get back . But where? The dark wore him out. The n

Trotwood: So many new dramas! I'm not able to keep up with everything. I mean I suppose I should be happy that people were able to work so much with everything that has been going on in the world, but I'm also feeling like I am being slowly overtaken by a drama flood. Joseon Exorcist and Navillera started this week (hopefully, I'll be able to start reviewing for next week), but 12 episode of Palace of Devotion (with seven subbed) and A Love Story: You are the Greatest Happiness of My Life just dropped 14 subbed episodes all at once 14 hours ago after premiering last week! I have a regular job, people. How does anyone manage to watch all these shows and still work? I might be able to catch up with the Korean shows, but I've already given up on the Chinese ones. I'll never catch up with being 12 episodes behind from the beginning. kakashi: I'll be watching Joseon Exorcist too! (Wooooow, I'm going to start a KDrama, wish me luck!) I watched both Yin Yin M

  Chapter 91 written by LigayaCroft edited by Kakashi Ye Hua’s Private Council, composed only of some of his most trusted advisers, had been meeting more frequently as of late. This time the new addition was the God of War, looking like his usual infallible self. Today was the first time he had stepped out of Kunlun since he had moved back after waking up. The other elders bowed at Mo Yuan’s entry and congratulated him for fully recovering his health. Then it was off to Kingdom business. The attendees expressed their concerns on whether this year’s annual title awarding ceremony to new immortals at the Thirty-Sixth Heaven’s Qīng Yún Hall should be postponed or not. “If we push through with the event, it will be seen as a greater provocation to the dissidents.” Donghai Shuijin, the Eastern Sea King, pointed out. “But if we don’t, it will also be seen as if we are going soft.” “It is tricky,” Zhong Huai, leader of the Junzi Clan murmured, his eyes darting toward Ye Hua. “Tianjun, please

Panda: Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii! Hope everyone is staying safe and doing good. Miss you all. Miss dramas too. I can't believe March is already halfway. Whew. No dramas still, but lots and lots of books! Take care mon amies. Ciao.  Trotwood: (jumping up and down and waving at Panda in excitement) Hugs to you. We miss you here, but I love reading about all the books you are reading. And in honor of those books, I'm posting a picture of one of the most beautiful libraries in Asia--a goal destination of mine just for the architecture alone. Nakajima Library at Akita National University in Japan.  kakashi: PANDA! My love, I miss you. I just bought a Kindle eReader after reading hundreds of trashy romance books on my tiny phone. I'm working on my own book and am waiting for the pandemic to go eff itself soon .
