@greenwatch08, oh sorry i took long to see your query on the period of separation between NQ and SS.  But thanks to @rhaps, its been explained clearly and also thanks on clearing about the ages of NQ and SS.  As @angelangie mentioned, "curiosity kills the cat" I also was not so patient to read all the chapters initially and started reading randomly, but anyhow when i had to connect the later parts with some situation, i will start reading the initial chapters :rolleyes:

 

later in the novel

Spoiler

The sister of the devil sect head Tang Xiotang, one with the cute doggie will be accepted in the academy as third sister's disciple.  Even though master Fuzi will not accept her as his student, he will see how determined she is and allow her to stay in the academy.  

And also NQ will join the devil sect secretly later.  

 

Yes, nowi get a clear picture about devil sect.  Thank you for the explanation.

Now we talk about taoism/daoism and devil sect, later at the end of the novel we will go into buddhism also.  Ok, then what are haotian, hades and what is that WGM is practising?  is WGM also in taoism?:crazy:  What is exactly tang academy into?  What is teacher Yan se into?  We say he is a talisman expert. Usually i have seen talismans written in red chinese letter on yellow paper, they do some praying and use it.  Does it also come under any of these practices or it is entirely different?

 

The only thing common is cultivation for all but they are done in different ways to gain/obtain power/energy.

Finally, I checked the novel *LOL - why do I even bother..* 

1. after they go to their wilderness, NQ's friend said,"We've been stationed here for more than a month ..." (Chapter 197)

2. the time duration between NQ using a different name until he arrived back to Chang An : 6 months (chapter 341)

 

So, assuming that they need time to travel from Chang An to the wilderness, plus the length of time between no 1-2 (if any), NQ leaves SS for less than a year *LOL*

 

And the part in the novel that stated that NQ was 18 yrs old (chapter 186) was the same as the drama (epi 29). But, the novel also said that SS was 14 yrs old . So, if NQ leaves for less than a year, yeah ..SS could be 15 yrs old when he gets back

 

So..NQ found baby SS when he was 4 or 4.5 yrs old? *LOL*. .I honestly skipped the first parts of the novel

Thanks. You are right again! Just started Ep. 29 and NQ said he is 18.  Your suggestion CPP meant something like before you were 20 making him a prodigy sounds correct.  I guess they just translated it wrongly?

Ok that makes a bit more sense, dark = bad. Although I dont think it warrants for demon sect/civillians minding their business getting chopped down by foreign powers/authority, specifically on their territory(but ey politics, right). 

 

I could never figure out how the Demon sect folks cultivate the nascent energy. Hopefully it shows in the upcoming arc. I forgot that the Demon Sect incorporate human sacrifice in their beliefs from earlier episodes(ex:the princess).

Definitely one of the things I like about this drama is it isn't black and white as the assumption would be the Light sect are all good and the Demon sect are all bad.  In fact, I'd say we've seen the Light side commit far more atrocities than the Demon sect so far.

This i had written a detailed post of how long they were apart in Page 48.  Ch.205 NQ met MSS and Ch.341 he returns back to old brush pen shop.  But thank god SS met WGM who was protecting her when she was alone and also chose her as the lady of light by him to practiced under him.  By the time he returned she was well versed with powers of divine light.

 Indeed NQ also took SS to fight/kill XY.  She was the one who used her full energy to emit light during the night to help fight/kill XY.  Every body from academy esp. the eldest and second brother and even Ye Hongyu was surprised when she emitted a powerful light to assist NQ in the process of killing XY.  This was also one of the powerful fight scenes.  Hope the production does not disappoint as they did for the Wilderness one wasting the time on royal arc.

 

Thanks for the summaries.  I'm so glad Sang Sang has WGM by her side and he trains her too.  Really looking forward to their scenes and our Sang Sang developing her powers..

Yep. Xilings were presented as these upright/righteous people of light w/good intentions but w/wrong direction(WGM insights/killing at Lin Manor). Not to mention the difference in culture/beliefs/politics that coincides/clashes together in the story.

 

Its all about perspective. Not all good is good and what is deemed bad isnt all bad. There's a grey area for everything.

Am i the only one who thought demon leader Tang as sexy?

@dzareth  He is so sexy. I think k NQ and him will click too. NQ doesn’t believe the demon sect is Evil but PiPi does. I wonder what the other brothers and Sisters think.

I'm follower 21 so that means I'm legal.  :glasses: I'm cool like SS (because of her cold illness...)

 

SS was 12yrs when they left City of Wei. NQ was 16yrs so they are 4yrs apart. It was already a 2.5yrs stayed in Chang'an before he left to the wilderness.  He stay outside for 6months. . SS was 15th when they had the marriage argument at her parent's house. She said she will turn 16th the following year which is a good age for marriage.  Yeah so they should be 4yrs apart.

Sorry, I kinda miss your post. If I didnt,then I didnt have to check the novel *LOL*. 

 

You are right. Wow.. so NQ found SS when he was below 5 yrs old?? Could you imagine a child that small carrying and raising a baby? That's adorable and pitiful at the same time :(

Even though NQ find YH very pretty and captivating and always flirt with her, but he knew himself that he has no intention of touching her. Even MSS liked him soo much and she made his heart flatter and he likes her back too, but, he would rather hurt and reject her rather than seeing SS letting him go. When MSS where asking Master Q if there's an afterlife, thinking that maybe by then she can have NQ heart but unfortunately, NQ already hope in his heart that whatever happens to him and SS, and if there's an afterlife, he hoped that SS will just be step away from him so they can still be together. What a lovesick fool indeed as what Master Qingian said. 

Chingu, spoiler for you all. Indeed, NQ love for her cannot be measured by death. 

@thartie.... Thanks for spoiler I am so :wub::wub: , Sang Sang is a lucky lucky girl. Damn even I am jealou. Please send NQ my way. Lol lol :wub::heart:

I agree the child actor was too old.

 

I thought they aged them up for the drama and SS is about 14-15 years old and NQ 19-20 years old?

You are correct @raziela... When adapting a drama to tv, they always age up the kids for some kind of reason. I can list a bunch of drama who has the characters a bit older than they weee actually in the novel. It maybe it would offend sensitive viewers. Like some viewers can’t see SS and NQ as a couple because he raised her from a babe.

I want to know what's the deal with everyone hating on the Demon sect folks, beside worshipping Hades(being darkness of the world)/cultivating differently? 

 

From what Ive seen so far, they dont seem like a bad group of people, just people living like every else.  Are they allowed to enter other territory without punishment? They seem to get killed everytime onscreen. 

 

Also, isn't LQ a prisoner of war(replacement for his brother). He seems to go about casually doing whatever he pleases. Is he allowed to venture in/out of the Tang empire whenever he wants? Im suprise there arent any Tang Guards stationed to oversee/watch LQ just in case he decides to ploy a coup. 

@greenwatch08..... It is about their faith in light and darkness.  IR , people are scared of what they don't understand. Even NQ doesn't believe in that Demon Sect are evi. He considers them to be people first, if their faith is in the darkness so be it , it doesn't mean it evil because it is their faith like the faith Xiling believes in are light.  I have no ideas if what is wrote should be in a spoiler tag, Not wanting to offend anyone I did so. 

Spoiler

I think even Fu Zi doesn't believe that the Demon Sect are evil, he knows the Eternal Night is coming , which will force the Demon Sect to come to Tang. We all saw what happened the last times. He knows the Demon Sect is just trying to survive and protect their tribe and family. NQ will surely be on their side because he knows how hard it is to survive and what is wrong with the Demon Sect wanting to protect their loved onesss.  

I am so glad @angelangie we are on the same page on why Demon Sect and Xiling are at war. It is due to their belief. I think people in general and RL take their beliefs to a whole new level. Some never know to respect someones's belief and make it difficult to have peace among all religions.  This why I don't to much emphasis on religion. I believe in respecting people and their beliefs as they do the same for me. :heart::heart:  It breaks my heart :heartbreak::heartbreak: when i see people use their faith or belief in hurting others. smh smh smh

True.

 

I really want to see this aspect explored more in terms of the bigger picture/overall narrative of the story. 

 

Im definitely looking foward to the big reveal on SS's identity. I thinks that will play a huge part in challenging/creating a shift in ideals & morality, and even relationships w/people.  I love that SS's existence is a major core of EN. I want to see how this plays out onscreen, since Im not familiar w/ the webnovel.

Spoiler

If you mean SS's divine identity, i think that content will be in S2. My guess is the climax for s1 is the NQ-XH duel and the season will end with NQ-SS leaving to find a cure for her cold disease.

I really wished they had given the reason to why Ning Que doesn't like the Princess. 

Spoiler

I don't recall ever saying I disliked the Princess but I don't like her. I really thought she liked Sang Sang but in Episode 27 , it seems she is only using Sang Sang as way to SPy on Ning Que or control him because of Sang Sang.

But in the novel she really seem to like her. She even tried to poach her off Ning Que. Ning Que saw how close she was to her Princess and pulled her to his side.  How dare she tell Ning Que SS doesn't tell a good story. I have to disagree with the witch, SS tells a great Story especially when it is about NQ. She is so happy, her smile is so bright when she talks about him. 

In the drama , they haven't really given us  a solid reason to why NQ dislike the Princess and NQ knows The Princess has designs for him.

Oh really? Viki sypnosis really fooled me. I only knew about SS's identity because it was in the description box on Viki so I assumed it would be revealed this season. I guess Ill have to patiently wait until next year or so for S2(or read after S1 is done).

 

Thank you.

Thank you @UnniSarah :) Ever Night was just a random drama suggestion by a website and since I love wuxia and currently in a kdrama slump, I tried it and it was the best decision ever. LOL That was my point if no return. 

 

I was already fascinated by these Chinese dramas but Ever Night really took the top, even topping Ashes of Love for me. The action scenes was just so cinematic, I’m just in awe everytime. So I’m reading the novel (catching up to it) and real-time watching the drama. :)
