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. But he wen…

“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 knew exactly …

Behind Bai Qian, the little sprite was shrieking desperately, pulling her back by the scruff of her neck. But its inconsequential strength did nothing to stop her.

A pair of hands caught her around the chest and with considerable strength dragged her backward. Gathering all the powers she could muster, Bai Qian wrenched herself loose and dove toward the cliff without slowing down.

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; but I h…

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.

“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.”

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 actually si…

*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 it to be broken an…

Migu walked into the fox den with a tea tray in his hands and what was, in Bai Qian’s opinion, a grin that was meant to cheer her and the Ghost Princess up. Though as grateful as Bai Qian was, Migu’s effort did not seem to be working. Nothing could take her mind off the fact that Moyuan had been gone for some days. He might be back as soon as tomorrow, but that did not stop her from worrying herself senseless. Normally she would not worry since going on missions was what he did as the God of War. But this time, she had every reason to suspect the worst. To add to that, Yanzhi too was bearing a similar mood because Zilan had also gone missing.

Becoming the Ultimate Scholar and being able to interact with the Emperor of Tiansheng Kingdom directly was as exhilarating as it was terrifying. Being a Hall of Zhaohua's Sixth Level Scholar! Having imperial privilege! Getting her own residence!

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 because m…

Four…

The night’s clean air was making it easier for Moyuan to utilize the spell to detect immortal essence; and so far the spell had revealed four immortals, more or less, on their swords behind him. Mounting firmly on Xuanyuan, Moyuan looked ahead with his arms behind his back, paying no heed to the masked figures that had been pursuing him from a distance for many hours. He was used to being followed by now. No matter what master these people served, they seemed to be charged with the task of reporting back his activities. Not that any of them had succeeded in their mission. He had been wondering why so few of them had found him today. Though strangely, there was an immortal presence among them that was neither demonic or of the Demon clan. That immortal, too, had been keeping up speed with the other ones all this while.
