  1. Hello, I'm not new to the forum but I'm new to the topic. I just had to comment on one thing. I absolutely loved the scene and the way Lee Hyuk pulled out two guns to shoot at the paparazzi. I laughed so hard.

    8. [+251,-7] You can't make any sense out of this drama. You just have to watch it, thinking of this as a comedy and you'll enjoy it. (source: melohwa)

     

    Well said knet. Well said :lol:

     

    Anyways...


    I don't mind Sunny - Woobin - Hyuk trio at all. Sunny and WB needs someone cray in their lives to do the cray2 work for them. And Hyuk is the best person to do that.

     

    In the latest ep, WB and Sunny 'used' Hyuk to their benefit. Hyuk want cray, pulled out 2 guns and shot paparazzies like no one elses business. He must have great aim to not actually hit anyone in that car. Lol. 

     

    If only they can actually be friends, and there's no secrets, killings, revenge going in between, these three would be a hoot to watch. 

     

    And..i say this again..i bet SSR is having the time of his life acting Hyuk out. When else can you pull guns and shoot around like that. And he's stable in a minute suddenly bonkers in the next. Same goes to Empress Dowager, her expressions are gold hahaha.

    Every time I watch an episode, I think I laugh too much. Also, I think it is just difficult for me to imagine Shin Sung Rok playing a nice character after his role as Lee Hyuk, Oh Tae Suk and Lee Jae Kyung.
     

    I actually do not really care if the ending is sad. I think as long as the truth is revealed and those that deserve punishment receive them, I'm good with that. But then, it all depends on the writer.

    Just a REALLY BELATED THING TO SAY (since we've established that IU is doing fine as HS)

    But I realized a really good contender for the part of HS could've been Suzy, if it weren't for Uncontrollably Fond filming. If she took the part of HS instead of signing up for UF, maybe ratings and netizens' reactions would've been better for the show since they know Suzy is a pretty good actress and she did a saeguk drama before....

    I still like IU as HS but for ratings wise......I wonder what would've happened if it was her instead...

    I think maybe MLSHR's rating may be a bit better but you have to remember that Suzy was acting with Kim Woo Bin who is well-loved in Korea too and UF did not get that high ratings (maybe better than MLSHR since it's constant). But I don't think the acting was the problem. It's just the past scandals and editing problems, storytelling that affect the rating. Plus even if Suzy was the main lead acting, this drama would be battling against Moonlight Drawn by Clouds again. So I don't think it'll make a difference.

    Other than that, I think in my opinion the casting is fine. I prefer IU as Hae Soo more than Suzy (I'm not a Suzy hater). A lot of people already said it but the flaws of MLSHR just make it even more entertaining to watch since we're dissecting every little detail and information from the story.

    And I didnt expect that this drama will let me still apply business theories and mathematical principles  120

    I think we're doomed by MLSHR every second.

    I am sorry but to highlight to u, although it's 1.7 billion views on youku, u hv to divide that by 15 EPs, which means it's more or less 100mil per ep n one person may watch twice.

    In Singapore, it is only screen on cable TV, so the number of pax is even lesser, it's just that it's top in taxable TV channels now :)

    Yeah, I noticed that too but it probably won't matter much. MLSHR's views will probably still fall between the range of 2.4 billion to 3.4 billions in total (Youku and other channels and live stream). It's just like @riuenu said. There's no official count :(.

    Thank you. Please do take into account about what @qwenli said about the average is more or less 100 millions views per episode though. So the total views may fluctuate. But regardless, it's a lot of views. Taking 1.7 billion views and divide it in half, it's still way more than the views in South Korea.

    @Hanazumi i always amazed by your analysist, more over you come with lots of different sources, even to hemingway's. 

    I'm honored but I wasn't the one who started all the amazing posts about dog and wolf (not trying to degrade So or Wook here). @40somethingahjumma gave a great post on wolf here below.

    Then @bebebisous33 gave us a broader look about dog and wolf below.

    And to everyone else who contributed so we could understand more about the animals motif here.

    And I just happened to really like the phrase / title Time Between Dog and Wolf and the twilight quote from The Red River / Anatolia Story and that's how I came up with the thought. Earnest Hemingway's A Farewell to Arms just magically popped up in my mind while writing about the rain.

    in scarlet heart novel & C-Version the point was that no matter what Rouxi did she couldn't change history even with her knowledge, but in this version the clueless Hae Soo did change history, I find this an interesting major change from the original work, also having 2 characters from the future (Ji Mong & Hae Soo)

     if Hae Soo wasn't there when Wang Yo killed Wang Mu then Wang So would've killed Wang Yo right then & there, but if he did, who's going to believe that it wasn't him who killed Wang Mu? his brothers will turn against him & he'll have no choice but to kill them, Baek Ah might be killed while defending Wang So though, even before Hae Soo he's not the kind of guy who kills without reason, ironically Wang Yo becoming king made Wang So determined to stop the princes from killing each others, 8th, 13th & 14th princes are not going to die, Hae Soo made Wang Yo king, the one she had the least interaction with, & she thought she made Wang So king when she touched his face lol

    maybe Ji Mong changed something too, the day Ji Mong told Wang So he was fated to be king that's the day he received the scar on his face, I believe that scar made him a better king for the people though

    @Hanazumi Just after posting my comment, I could read your second post. I had written myself a long analysis about water:

    the different symbols of water and their signification

    Water in form of rain or bath can help to see the truth: Mu died drowning and with his death, Hae Soo realises the dangerosity of her situation as well. She is confronted with reality: Yo is a coldhearted and cruel person, she didn't pay attention to him before. Now, the incident has opened up her eyes. 

    Yes, :D. By the way, the post you linked me is on page 779 now :o. Had to navigate through several pages. I began posting on the forum around page 800 or something so I didn't read your previous posts before that (I'm backreading but it's slow).

    Who would have thought LJG's old drama title is connected with MSHR? He's a fortuneteller or a seer.

    The colour of Wang Wook's hanbok has changed: it is grey/brown or even black so that the colour is reflecting his darkness. @solelylurkingused to describe Wang Wook as a wolf disguised as a sheep and now, I've come to think that Wang Wook should be more considered as a wolf disguised as a dog, while Wang So's nickname was the dog wolf. Wang Wook seemed to be loyal and nice, just like a dog in the earlier episodes. Here, Wang Wook is connected to the positive qualities of a dog, whereas Wang So was considered as a wolf with the bad qualities of a dog (his social low status). Now, the colour of their handbok is the same: black or dark colours (brown). But they have something more in common: Wang Wook and Wang So were born in the same year so that their astrological sign is the same. And now back to your connection: yes, the title would fit in here too because as time passes on, Wang Wook turns into a wolf, whereas Wang So has become the dog (in a positive way). It is difficult to distinguish them as friend or foe. Since the dog comes from the wolf, they still have some wildness in them so that a dog can become dangerous as well. Notice that Wang So will call himself a dog who will kill people in order to become free again. 

    Striking is that Wang Wook and Wang So have a similar view about love and polygamy. Wang Wook has never had more than one wife, unlike his brothers Yo and Won. And it was unusual. Sure, it was an arranged marriage which unlines the difference between So and Wook. Then Wook might have flirted with Hae Soo, but he didn't want to marry her, while lady Hae was still living. If you think about it, Wang Wook has a similar point of view about monogamy, but he was just not firm enough to act on it. When he fell in love with Hae Soo, he realised that he couldn't marry anyone else... if he had to marry, then it would be only Hae Soo. But his ambition and greed were the brakes that stopped him from doing so. 

    On the other hand, Wang So has and had the determination and the courage to show how much Hae Soo means to him, despise what the social norms were back then. No wonder that Yo makes fun of Wang So because of that: he insults Wang So and he compares him to an animal, just like @40somethingahjumma pointed it out correctly. Wang Wook has never showed this side of him to Yo and Won. They might know that there is something between Wook and Hae Soo, but not get aware of the deepness of his love for her.  

    In my opinion, Hae Soo had an impact on both of them: Hae Soo could see the good qualities of Wang So (dog) and she could tame him, while the opposite happened with Wang Wook. She turned him into a wolf and like it is said, a wolf has only one mate. Everything evolves around Hae Soo.

    As conclusion, Wang Wook and Wang So can be associated to the wolf and dog, both animals have positive and negatives sides:

    - dangerosity

    - freedom

    - wildness: a dog can become wild and difficult to control too

    - loyalty

    - one love

    - sense of family and honour: defend his people

    - wolf is less bloodthirsty than it was described in the past

    - Hierarchy system: alpha-beta / master - dog

    Did this answer your question?

     

    Then I would like to add something else: Actually the situation that is about to happen is really similar to this situation from the episode 7: Yes, the birthday party! Yo used Eun and Hae Soo to hurt Wang So and it happened in front of everyone. This is exactly the same trap!!

    The similarity is that Yo uses Hae Soo again, but this time the roles are reversed: Eun is the victim and Wang So the so called executor, while in the episode 7, Eun was the executor and So the victim. In the episode 7, Yo had set the trap and in the episode 16, Yo has again set the same trap. And Jung will be a witness too, just like the other brothers I guess. Hae Soo is again the leverage, however there is a small change: Hae Soo is well aware that she is Yo's tool to force Wang So to kill Eun, while she had no idea in the episode 7. What looked like a bad joke in the episode 7 was an announcement for the future incident which ends deadly. Back then, it ended with an apology from Eun, but this time Eun dies. 

    Thank you for your explanation. I quoted you again though. Not sure if you read that one yet. :) Eunnie, please RIP.

    And I saw one of my notifications that you mentioned me in one of ur posts but not sure why I cant seem to find where did you mention me..and what that talk about..

    And regarding Time Between Dog and Wolf, the title is such a masterpiece because we just don't know who's our friend and enemy. I think this speaks clearly to when Hae Soo knelt under the rain for Lady Oh.

    From wikipedia, "The unique title is taken from a French saying "L'heure entre chien et loup" and refers to the moments after sunset when the sky darkens and vision becomes unclear, making it difficult to distinguish between dogs and wolves, friends and foe."

    The moments after sunset is the rain here. Wang So is the friend (supposedly to be a wolf or future ruthless Gwangjong) while Wook is the foe (supposedly to be a loving gentleman). What I get out of this after putting myself in deep thoughts (when I should be studying for an exam today :cry:) is that rain appears when clouds mask the sunlight and it is just like how the eclipse happens (sun and moon become one). It was such an evoking moment for Hae Soo because unconsciously, she realized the true nature of both So and Wook. I do not remember seeing Hae Soo crying for that rain scene but the rain symbolizes her heartbreak and tears, not just for Hae Soo but for So and Wook also. So is pained to see Hae Soo suffering. Wook is pained because he has chosen to abandon her. Hae Soo is pained because of Lady Oh's sacrifice, So's kindness and Wook's abandonment.

    Another quote I got is from the Anatolia Story / The Red River manga (I do not remember the chapter) and it says:

    "Twilight invites devils to arise = They say devils roam through the streets when dusk is about to pass into night and those devils sow falsity and confusion. What kind of devil just passed through us, I wonder?"

    I think both quotes really describe the rain scene perfectly. Both the sunsets and twilight are referring to the same thing in this drama and that is the rain. It shows Hae Soo's suffering and then her rebirth. It's like she was drowned for a second time and got up again, just like the scene we got in episode 1. Also, it shows whatever is the "old" Hae Soo completely "died" with the rain scene as well as her love for Wook, steering her towards the ship for her and So. It's the water motif again through the rain. I remember Barbrey on DramaBeans mentioned that had Wook chosen Hae Soo, he would probably receive the blessing from the river god and become king. Barbrey on DramaBeans theorized that Hae soo coming out from the bath was important because she was supposed to be seen by all the possible candidates (she saw So separately in the bath). Now I am thinking that the bath scene in episode 1 was like an interview to find the right candidate (from this moment until the rain scene, she was torn between So and Wook) while the rain scene was the decision that Soo has made. She chose So, not Wook. As the rain stops, the sun is brighter and the pleasant smell (hence So) while whatever that is left (odor) is Wook.

    I think Earnest Hemingway's A Farewell to Arms probably is a good example of the rain motif.

    Feel free to correct me on this.

    Actually the whole thing of us dissecting MLSHR reminds me of the days as HP fans dissecting the books. But it's so much fun because JK Rowling has dropped hints even from Book 1. Not sure about MLSHR's writers here. Do they really drop us hints for us fans to pick up or is it just WE who are too enthusiastic and have too much love about the drama that we start to fill in the blanks ourselves, seeking hints and creating answers at the same time. :huh:

    Yeah, we're our own teachers now regarding MLSHR. Soompi and DramaBeans are like the MLSHR analysis classes. It's free or it's mad due to MLSHR.

    Speaking of Wang so. I love how his hanboks coincides with His transformation too

    https://mobile.twitter.com/JangHyukbr/status/786386882854785024

    Wang So and Wang Wook have hanboks that mirror their characters' change. This reminds me of LJG's previous work Time Between Dog and Wolf. From wikipedia, "The unique title is taken from a French saying "L'heure entre chien et loup" and refers to the moments after sunset when the sky darkens and vision becomes unclear, making it difficult to distinguish between dogs and wolves, friends and foe." Not so much about time here but the part that says between dog and wolf, I find it relating to how Wang So and Wang Wook both change. But I guess time does play a role since we see how Hae Soo changes So for the better and Wook the other way around.

    I think maybe @40somethingahjumma (who also wrote an essay on wolf) or @bebebisous33 or any of you can give a more detailed explanation on this.

    I think we haven't seen that hanbok yet and we all should be investigating this hanbok, too. Eun does die if it goes according to history. But Soon Deok (in history was King Taejo's wife). Maybe she's the one living on but we don't know. There's no information about Eun having kids, too. Unless the writer decides to make Soon Deok lives on and gets pregnant after one try.

    1) boat scene 
    the characters are on a boat floating on a clear lake. However, as they spoke to each other, their faces are obscured by the sunlight. This is to signify that although the situation is already clear (Wang So has already decided to marry his niece and let go of Hae Soo, Hae Soo has already chosen to accept Wang So by wearing the hairpin) the characters feel internal turmoil again when they meet each other face to face. (although the clear lake could also represent how both now understand the love they had for each other with clarity, their feelings for each other are pure, untainted and undisturbed despite circumstances) 

    Neither could see each other's faces clearly in this scene because both are behaving dishonestly to each other in order to conceal the internal turmoil they feel, so their expressions are also obscured by the sunlight. Wang So is smiling and acting mischievously despite feeling the weight of his loss. Hae Soo is acting nonchalantly when in fact she is actually shocked by how disappointed she is and how much she values his words to her.

    Your analysis led me to think about how So did not want to tell Soo about Yo ordering him to kill Eun and how Soo hid the fact that she was hiding Eun and his wife from So. They were having internal turmoil again.

    I had some admiration for Wang Yo two times:

    1) Stops his moms from getting the hope to rule Goryeo through him and puts her in her right place. When he told her to just enjoy her life as Queen mom and not get involved with politics, evil Omma happy moment was kept short and was really well a  real delight to watch her face with shock.

    2) HumilIating YH! Not being fooled nor manipulated by Yeon-Hwa. Seeing her face, when he told her that her and her family are not suited be in laws to the royals, was really priceless. In your pretty face YH , in your damn pretty face that failed to seduce WY. :phew:

    Also, I don't think that she actually loves WS. She's just curious about him. In one of the the earlier episodes Yo was being all aggressive towards YH and So came to save her. After he left she told Yo that she was curious about what it would feel like to tame a beast. I think that's all she thinks of So. A stupid wild animal who she would like to control so that in the future with her brains and his brawn they can take the throne. She would rule Goryo and he would be eating out of her hand and following her orders. She wants So to be her dog.afraid-pink-mouse-emoticon.gif?129295050

    @sadpluto I agree with you. She wants attention, pretty much everyone has to pay attention to her and give her some respect. In episode 4, when the princes intervene to stop her from beating Hae Soo. She lost face. That moment showed that Yeon Hwa would not let anyone look down on her. Yet Hae Soo gets all the attention that she wanted.

    Something interesting I found: Jimong appears to be surprised that Yo became King after Mu because he thought that all Yo would amount to was a traitor (he was born under a star of treason). And from the way he was talking before, So was supposed to be King after Mu died. There was no mention of Yo being born under a King's star. If this is so, then that means that the history Soo remembers is actually the history in the future (that So kills his brothers) and not the real history we have (that he only kills Won and a couple of nephews). Jimong is wondering how and why things changed and the answer is: Soo. Of course it's her. History was meant to be how we know it to be--that Taejo died, Mu becomes king, Yo becomes king and then So becomes king, and he kills Won and the nephews. Therefore, Soo's presence changed the history she and Jimong knew. I find this very interesting because I believe it's been speculated already, that maybe the history Soo remembered was not just her being a bad student. While she may not have had all the details, she did remember that So became a cruel king who killed his brothers. Therefore, she did change the future. However, just because she managed to change some things doesn't mean she was able to change all. Remember that historical accounts talk about there being rumors that So and Yo conspired to kill Mu. That's how it would appear to people who just saw/heard Yo storm the palace a traitor and come out a King with So as his dog. The future Soo will go back to will have reflected these changes and she'll be the only one to remember what it initially was.

     

    @millie10468 You're absolute correct, in my opinion. Having people referring to So as Yo's dog is a mirror of the real history when Yo and So worked together to revolt against Moo.

    Today's moral of the story is: Clean up after you play!! 

    While the lines of Ji Mong suggests that maybe the Korean version is messing with history, I wonder why they chose Wook as the 8th prince for this adaptation. Historically, Yo, So, and Wook were on the same team so that So and Wook's children intermarried and their descendants took turns taking the throne. Why did they choose the Hwangbo prince as the main rival of Wang So? Why not Wang Won (9th in MLSHR) who is officially the only brother that Gwangjong actually kills or his older brother (who does not appear in MLSHR)? It just really leaves a bad taste in my mouth to see how low Wook is falling and yet he can't die because then history will be completely different. 
    But then again, what's the point of wondering about that now. All I want to see is just So finally taking the throne and living happily ever after with Soo. ...like that's gonna happen.

    @ruizaio I had the same thought when I first started watching MLSHR. No doubt that in the original, 8th prince was the principal rival to 4th prince. But since MLSHR took creative liberties, they did not have to have 8th prince. They could have make up random orders instead of using the one from the original novel. But if they did and used 9th prince as the main rival to Wang So then they needed to add one more in to fill the 9th prince's spot. I hope we get to see little Seongjong (lol :D).

    What is it that YH thinks she could tell WS about WW and HS?

     

    - so far we saw them flit a bit, walk along with each other, hug, almost touch, Forehead kiss ... but that's all nothing
    - in the first episode CR implied that HS was chasing men
    - also folks said she had changed completely

     

    Could the "old" HS maybe grated WW more liberties, than she should have?

    There are theories that the "old / dead" Hae Soo was in love with Wang Wook. It will never and can never be confirmed.

    @thenagain Yeon Hwa is a character foil to Hae Soo. They both always differ on stances regarding love vs. survival, freedom vs. power, life vs. death.

    @liddi@ruizaio@snowglobe147 Thanks for the translation!

    @mewtwo I am really hoping that SBS creates a special award category to acknowledge KHN-HJH-YSW with their roles as the evil trio.

    @special_bee I haven't read anything from you. Where are you at? Or maybe I missed your posts somewhere?

    @40somethingahjumma Love your essays! Please open an MLSHR analysis class cheer3 onion head.

    @riuenu I am glad that EXO fans are giving their support to Z.Hera. She's a cutie!!!

    Maybe to much traffic on their server so they have to make 2 polls? But I can't access both polls. Don't know why. My internet connection is okay tho.

    @kyar7jizhenll Thanks for the additional information on 10th prince's family.

    When Yo became king, YH wore the ring he gave her to show her alliance with him but he STILL sent her off as a hostage to the Khitan because he said that he couldn't fully trust her or her family after they (and especially Wook) had betrayed him. I do agree that a lot of what YH does is to survive but she has said before - "that she is also a woman". Although she may want to be at a place of (more) power, she was still tempted by her own desires, specifically her desire to be with So. I think that the reason why she didn't settle for marrying Yo in the beginning was because she was always curious about So - after all, she had been nursing a crush on him since forever. It's possible that she may have waited for So and then simply went to Yo when he became king because she was stuck - the man she wanted was in love with someone else and flat out refused her proposal while the brother who's supposed to protect her was totally willing to let her be Yo's because it served his purpose.

    I'm not a fan of the character, but I do like the way Kang Hanna is portraying her.

    @itzibitzispider MLSHR is like an epidemic, infecting way too many victims kekekekek... 35

    @heartforkdrama LOL Don't tell me that he is the Joker.

    @Sharine Phinisia Thanks for the manga pic.

    @MadraRua, you got @meahri_1 to cover for you.

    @penelop3@privio@devotee@LyraYoo@omiki@bebebisous33@magdale@chi13lou It is ironic that both Ji Mong and King Tae Jo tell Hae Soo to just follow along instead of doing anything when in reality, she is the catalyst as many of you have said. Their happy scenes tell me that we should not take things for granted and enjoy every moment we can right now. We only realize the worth once we lose it just like Wook had lost Hae Soo. Not just love is dangerous but power/desire to have power is dangerous. Don't forget that we still have that baseball game on Monday. Even if the variable Ji Mong was talking about was the fact that So did not kill Yo at the cliff and even if he did not survive, the other variable would be Wook getting the throne before So could get the throne. But then, that's just my prediction because history does not have Wook succeeding Moo despite that fact that he would be honored as a king. In other words, he would still have to fight his brothers. And I agree that Hae Soo is the other variable to put history back to its place. And @omiki gives some interesting theory about Yeon Hwa being the one poisoning King Moo instead of Wook. That could be true or false. We probably have to wait until Chaeryung and Won's death to confirm. But I do have to agree that Yeon Hwa likes to poison and she does not want to get her hands dirty. I think Yeon Hwa's leak to Yo and Wook regarding the whereabouts of Eun and his wife is not just to save her from having to be married off to Khitan but to earn So's trust later on, possibly using that to cause a rift between So and Soo and get So to agree to marry her. Because in the preview, it was shown that Yeon Hwa also told So the same information. She wants to use Yo to kill Hae So, to eliminate the one that takes both her brothers' hearts, like @bebebisous33 said, and the one that does not have to find a way to protect herself between life and death. All princes want to protect Hae Soo (except 3rd and 9th) while Yeon Hwa has no one to protect her. Even her own brother is using her in his plan. She sees no protection for herself and the only thing left is to find a way to live, a way to power even if it means to kill her siblings. It is not a crime to want to live. That line really matches with Yeon Hwa (not that I like her - I like the KHN's acting though). I like to go back about the system back then in Goryeo. All of them are victims of the system and it is true that they are not really doing anything to change the system. Even if they are attempting to change the system, they end up causing that system to stay in place or everything just goes so wrong like adding more fuel to the fire. Wang So will probably be the only one successfully changing the system but it only happens in his reign. If Eun and his wife did not die, then Yo would find them to kill them or kill someone else. That would still enrage So anyway. I definitely think that Yeon Hwa will be the one to let Soo know about her warning to Wook. Then Wook would be helping Hae Soo one last time (or could be breaking So and Soo one last time) so she could move outside the palace with Jung or something like that. Ji Mong's inability to see Yo's star as the king but a traitor is probably something in line with Yo's usurping the throne and killing Moo. Even though he becomes King, he does not get the support of the people and begin to kill anyone who happens to be hindering his path to stabilize his power and solidify his Kingship. So I think Ji Mong's words make sense but as in Yo becomes King by revolting (and also has no source for power).

    Good Evening Guys!!

    This is actually my first time joining a forum for a drama. I have been a silent reader in this thread since episode 1...hihi sorry about that...... :blush: I really love this DRAMA!!!! :heart:

    But today, I decided to make an account because I just can't contain my feelings for yesterday's episode. It was so LOVELY...the scenes with So & Soo....finally they're in each other's arms. Confirming and sealing their LOVE with a kiss. We could also see the longing in their eyes. It seems like they have waited for so long for that to happen. I also love the stargazing scene and the boat scene. When So howl like a wolf, I really laugh so loud. He was like a kid...so cute. :heart:

    But we have to face the truth, that it is not all lovely the entire episode.

    I cried when Jimong is calling out the Crown Prince name, it so heartbreaking :bawling:

    Then I actually skip some parts of the episode (just a little bit), especially Wook's part. I LOATHED him!!

    And then, there's Lion King...I mean Prince Wang Yo and his Evil troops (including Won, Chae Ryung, Wook, Queen Yoo, Yeonhwa)

    This episode is really an emotional roller coaster ride for all of us. After watching it, I really feel tired but at the same time happy( of course for our So-Soo couple).

    And today we are waiting for Episode 15. Will tonight's episode be another emotional roller coaster ride for us? Will you ride this roller coaster again after getting your heart broken yesterday? 

    ME?? OF COURSE!!! Count Me in!!!

    Welcome, new eclipse! Someone please add @gamer403 to the roll call. LOL
