The Rise of Phoenixes (天盛长歌) - Chapter 12 (Fanfiction)

Chapter 12 - A Moonlit Night on the Spring River written by kakashi edited by Bunny Feng Zhiwei could hear her voice carry, and it gave her more confidence to speak up so that it carried even more. It went into every corner, it touched every golden ornament in this magnificent hall, every kneeling officials’ bowed head. But there was only one person in the room she wanted her voice to give comfort to. He was next to her, his face hidden between his hands on the floor, overwhelmed with emotions, now that his dead brother Ning Qiao was no longer considered a traitor. “Since there were emperors to shepherd the commoners, they all chose their first legitimate son as the Crown Prince. To consolidate their rule, they had to be impartial. The succession of the crown must be done justly. The choosing and deposing of a Crown Prince determines a country's fate. The Crown Prince, Ning Chuan, as my first legitimate son and the Crown Prince, was taught knowledge as well as manners. B

Chapter 57b written by kakashi edited by Panda & LigayaCroft “Where are we going exactly?” Tian Gu’s voice was trembling with suppressed anger again, not getting a chance to calm down these days. They had been walking for quite some time but there were no signs of the runaway. “There,” Yu Dian said and extended his hand to vaguely point into the direction they were headed anyway, letting it fall again quickly as if he had no strength or desire to hold it up longer. He looked like he hadn’t slept in days, which was probably exactly what had happened, with red rimmed eyes, unruly hair and a shaggy beard. Not that that changed anything about the effect his presence had always had on her, quite the opposite. “Don’t tell me you didn’t realize what she was planning,” she asked him unnerved. “And what if I did?” he replied with a snort that confirmed her hunch. He had no interest in ever catching up to the Celestial. “You let her go?” Tian Gu couldn’t believe this. “You

kakashi: Phoenix has declared his love! As early as episode 8! Is it downhill from here? Oh yes. Do you hear this sound? It's the sound of Phoenix's heart being shattered. JoAnne: It's such a quiet, defeated sound. He doesn't rage, he accepts it. That just makes the whole thing more sad, I think. Panda: I was just talking about angst scenes in the last episode, had no idea it would start so soon.

JoAnne:  It's still pretty cold out there some days but I don't care, I can smell Spring.  The ground hasn't thawed nor have buds begun to swell but the light is changing and that's enough for me right now. kakashi: Spring has sprung in many ways here and we've had our first "T-Shirt only"-day. SakiVI: What is this in the picture below? If it's Chen Kun, I would like a clearer picture, please.  And yes, we have some cherry blossoms now. I'm not too happy. They are a poison for me. Hell yeah it's Chen Kun! (But I'm sick in bed TT______TT) Trotwood: I'm pretending that it didn't snow this weekend and opening windows for at least an hour or two each day. With the sun through windows, it can get 80F (26.6C) in apartment, so I pretend it's spring. Panda: Get better soon K! Spring has sprung indeed. I am so happy *breaks into a foxtrot* I have so many dramas on my list- Confession, Kill It, Doctor Prisoner and I will watch them;

kakashi: I'll have what she's having. Panda: LOOL, it does look lit. JoAnne: I don't know, that kind of looks like a hangover in the making.

Chapter 11 - Getting a Father's Love is a Blessing from Heaven written by kakashi edited by bunny When his sixth son was in the room, Ning Shizheng always felt a vague sense of unease, a strange feeling like the throne he sat on suddenly got a fraction harder, the collar of his robe tightened a few inches and started chafing, or his golden headpiece wore him down with a previously unnoticed heaviness.

Chapter 57a written by kakashi edited by Panda & LigayaCroft “Do you really think you can keep me locked away like this?” the Passenger roars. Yes, Mo Yuan thinks he can. He has trained his mind for a very long time to be as sharp as a sword and as reliable as the orbitals of the heavenly bodies. He has controls in his minds that are as impenetrable as his Father’s Sea-Cloud prison. “You will have to sleep,” the voice says menacingly, “you will let your guard down.”

Chapter 10 - Taste Royal Wine and go see the God of Death  written by kakashi edited by Bunny When Feng Zhiwei stepped into Prince of Chu’s hall with her entourage of servants carrying the Emperor’s food presents behind her, she found the owner of the residence sitting on the floor like a commoner, bent over some fabric, discussing with a plain but friendly looking man how to cut and sew it.

kakashi: Look! It's Baby Turtles. What horrible week this has been for K-Ent and the world. Be kind and love each other. JoAnne: Baby turtles are precious. I had a baby turtle pet in a bowl on my desk when I was at boarding school, he was very popular. I made him a little leash but he didn't really like it.  As for the horrible week, I find myself retreating from nearly everything these days.  I just want some peace for a change.  Just a little while. Panda: Thanks for the baby turtles. We do indeed need more love and light in this world. I'm feeling a bit fragile after events in NZ. May the souls of the departed rest in peace. Love all of you. Please keep safe. Trotwood: The world is such a maddening place. We all needed this picture. SakiVI: I am barely making it in time.  I had a lot of real-life drama since last Thursday.  I got virtually kidnapped .  I had to change my phone number because when my mother called it, the guy who claimed I was in jail - I was actu

Chapter 56 written by kakashi edited by LigayaCroft & Panda *A lot of years ago* “Father, if I may, I have another question” Mo Yuan said politely. “Of course,” Fuxi replied, “however busy I may seem, never think that I will not take the time to answer all your questions, son.” “Thank you, Father Lord,” Mo Yuan replied. Mo Yuan let his eyes wander back to Fuxi’s desk and the artifacts on it. So the bright blue bracelet was a key to an unbreakable prison, but what was the Demon artifact used for? It was a curious thing, an empty mirror, but he found it most intriguing. His father who had watched his eyes shift and settle on the object picked it up and turned it in his hand. “This mirror? You want to know what it’s for? Hm. You see, I cannot use it, it’s beyond my powers.” “That cannot be true, Father,” Mo Yuan objected. Fuxi chuckled. “Thank you for being so filial, Mo Yuan, but it is the truth. It was given to me by a friend, a very long time ago. He believed i

SakiVI: I'm around this week. Not watching too many shows, though that's because I have mum here, and we watch Yes Minister and Faulty Towers every evening. Trotwood: I grew to love Faulty Towers. When I was a kid, I didn't like it very much because it made me anxious because he was always messing up so badly. As you can see below, I'm not watching much of anything new. Done a bunch of rewatching, which is what I do when work is to stressful. I need to know what is coming. kakashi: I'm here but you can't see me. JoAnne: I'm here but you can't hear me. Mostly because I've been watching English-language shows: Season 1 of True Detective (so weird) and Season 1 of The Sinner (hey, also very weird) Panda: I have been the sickest I have been in a really long time. We all caught this special variant of the flu with high fevers (105) and a super congested respiratory tract. I felt my head was going to explode on Wed, and had to start antibiotics be

Chapter 8 - Promises Made so Easily, all Lies… written by kakashi edited by Bunny “Your Highness, this hair ornament is the only thing left. The hair ornament of Qingming students.” Just like that, she was gone. A charred body in a torched courtyard, neatly covered by a sheet of cloth to spare him the worst. Just like that, a pawn that could have become a queen was taken off the board by his enemies - all because he was incompetent, laughable, completely unfit to ever be more than a useless man born into the royal family by a cruel quirk of fate.

Chapter 55 written by kakashi edited by Panda & LigayaCroft “Shao Waaaan!” Jerking awake, Shao Wan lifted her head from the pillow, brushed aside a lock of hair and blinked. A dream hovered briefly at the edges of her awareness: Sunbleached plains... brown animals grazing lazily, a conversation... But it dissipated like smoke the next time she blinked and all that remained of it was a feeling of having been somewhere else moments before. She was in her room, in her lavish bed. It was warm, it was comfortable… and very bright. The sun was streaming in through the windows and her stomach growled loudly upon realizing the morning was already old and there had not been any nourishment.

Trotwood: I'm never first. Where is everyone? I'm posting now because since we had a snow day today (12 inches/ 32 centimeters where I live and 14 inches/35 cm where I work--see Kakashi? I'm trying to remember to use both measurements!), there will be so much work to make up for this week that i know I won't be able to comment. I should've did more work at home today, but I slept a lot after shoveling.Wasn't in mood to watch anything new either. I just rewatched eps of Just You . OST holds up but Aaron's hair? Oh, and is anyone watching Love in Sadness? It keeps showing up on my YT recommendations with clips of Ryu Soo Young playing crazed abusive husband. JoAnne: I don't think I watched all that much this week...I intend to check out Love in Sadnes s but I feel like I'm not going to stick with it, truthfully. Panda: I have 2 sick kids and i blame this weather. Our high was 12F yesterday but actual feel then was 0, with us getting into -18. Brrrrr
