 As I watched ep.50, I noticed that WJ's grandmaster seems quite accepting the fact that WJ wants to go to find ZM. I'm wondering did I missed something? I mean, all his martial uncles really hate the girl, how come his grandmaster seems ok with it? As far as I know, the grandmaster was really happy when WJ brought ZR to Wudang and announced their engagement.. Did I perhaps missed a scene that hinted the grandmaster knowing WJ's affection is really for ZM? 

I don’t think there is any scene. I guess overtime it became very well known that WJ loves ZM. grandmaster just wants WJ to be happy, it’s time for WJ to do what he wants not what others want from him. That’s my interpretation.

I guess you're right..

 

I wish when they release the DVD they could add uncut scenes for the ending as well. The last episode ended rather abruptly. I have lots of unanswered questions, like where is ZM's brother (Did WJ confronts him in the battlefield? Is he alive?), what happened to the Ming Sect (especially YX), what happened with ZM after she return to mongol (I mean to the mongolian people she's supposed to be dead right?), etc.

Oh yeah, really wish there's a kiss at the end too. Coz seriously.. They met again after we don't know how long, he is supposed to kiss her.. fiercely..

Yes! So many unanswered questions. I really want to know how long did WJ search for ZM. I’m also curious Whether he would go after her without grandmaster’s comment that he should go to find ZM as he still young, there’s still time for him to correct his mistakes.

I also think that Zhang San Feng truly wants Wuji to be happy,  to chase what he really wants. When WJ initially (and reluctantly, in this version) agreed to marry ZZR,  the match was considered perfect in the eyes of WJ family and people around him, so it's not surprising that ZSF is happy too.  But If WJ eventually and finally finds his true happiness by being together with ZM,  then definitely ZSF will not hold it against WJ. 

 

I guess with his age, ZSF has learned a lot of life lessons and has attained wisdom that even his oldest disciples might not be able to grasp yet. Of all the people that WJ has met,  I felt ZSF is one of the few who can really accept WJ the way he is, a young man with his own desire and his own will,  not what and who WJ should have been in the eyes of others (something that I felt WJ sect's members and even uncle+grandfather failed to do). One thing that make me really like zsf is his ability to see people with less judgment. He might have his initial reservations but he didn't hold on that judgemental thoughts once he knew the person (e. g.  When he first met a Ming sect member when he was trying to find cure for young WJ.  He offered the young man to leave the "evil" sect and join Wudang,  but the man politely refused.  ZSF accepted and respected the man's decision) .  Plus, ZSF has experienced the same situation with his 5th disciple marrying YSS from the evil sect (at the time of their marriage, Ming sect was considered an evil one by the other righteous sect) .  

 

One of the reasons  why I love Wudang sect the most of all the other sects in HSDS. :thumbsup:

@yukiyukiku You're welcome, and I hope you enjoy it :)

 

@chipz03 I completely agree with you. ZSF has always been one of my favorites. In fact, the whole Taoist clan/Wu Dang sect have all been great in Jin Yong stories, minus ROCH. With ZSF's wisdom, I believe it resolved Wu Ji's find and eased him on his journey. Again, great parallels between Wu Ji and Zhao Min's love and his parent's. Love this series so darned much.

Thank you @deminni     for the chapter!!! I really love reading it. Compared to my peaceful version of the grassland aftermath Chinese fanfic, yours are so exciting and make me pinning for more. I can see minmin having difficulty with accepting WJ again. In the past, it was her going after WJ and WJ hesitate. Now looks like it's her turn to turn him away haha. 

 

I am also pinning for @chipz03 dark fanfiction HSDS, hope it will be out soon :p, time for WJ to revenge on ming sect haha 

 

I agree that I really like ZSF the most in this series. He is really understanding and wise and he have the foresight and never judge stuffs by their book covers. I am happy because I am personally a taiji student under Wudang sect. And it's kinda cool to see Jinyong describing my forefather to be such a wise man.

Call me crazy if you need to. 

Watched the Aladdin movie last night and every aspect of it reminds me of wuji zhaomin, even the lyrics of "A whole new world".

 

I must be really crazy. 

 

Completely off topic... my husband and little girl went to see it but didn’t finish (little girl got sleepy. It’s over 2 hrs long!). My husband didn’t like it at all; for him it’s not as bad as Beauty and the Beast remake but still bad. I, personally, can wait until it’s out on Netflix. The more you like something, the harder it is to replace it with something better. Yet, it was amazing how Jeffrey Chiang’s LOCH 2017 and HSDS 2019 replaced the favs of my childhood (see how I brought it back to topic? Lol).

 

He seems to understand what I like. I enjoyed 80’s version with Tony Leung and Kitty Lai so much (and ONLY watched for the first time as an adult!) that I thought none of the other versions even compared—not 2000, 2003, or 2009). But HSDS 2019 is my new favourite. I have a hard time rewatching the beginning or the ending but everything in between more than makes up for it. I haven’t obsessed about an OTP like this for a long time so it’s really telling! I’ve been reading fanfics, searching for fanfics, making video clips, reading weibo, checking Yesasia.com to see if dvds are released... :sweatingbullets:

 

Recently, I’ve forced myself to start a new series so you won’t be seeing me too active on this forum, but I just want to say that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed lurking on this forum for several pages, then joining the discussion, and now I’ll take a break from active discussion for a while (until there’s news of dvds). Thanks to all you awesome creators for sharing your videos, gifs, images, links, stories, insights and interpretations for me to see/read. I hope you’ll continue to create, because I’ll still be lurking from time to time and I’ve bookmarked your fanfic pages, so please know you have a fan here, even if I don’t say anything. Peace out!

YX gifs dump lol. Episode 41 is gold mine for YX faces :lol:

I put some under spoiler so there won't be a loading problem lol, since there are a lot

This part feels like YX is laughing at ZYZ for manipulating WJ so obviously by saying that ZM is close with the Crown Prince to make WJ jealous. Because technically ZYZ didn't have to say ZM is close with the Crown Prince to make his argument to cancel the plot, he can just say RYW is close with/support the Crown Prince. But the fact ZYZ used ZM instead is probably laughable for YX.

Which is also bloody funny, that means even though WJ told everybody that he's going to marry ZR, but everybody knows and still believe that WJ is in love with ZM :lol: Even though WJ himself keep saying he already cut off any relationship with ZM but nobody believes him :sweat_smile:

And ZR still want to marry WJ lol, what an oblivious woman

EQrM9aa.gif

When ZM and ZR is arguing, YX keeps looking at WJ to see what he's going to do :ph34r:

Edit:

Everytime I see WJ and YX I can't help but keep thinking of Batman/Bruce Wayne and Alfred. YX can so become a butler, and WJ life story almost the same as Batman, they both lost their parents when they were kids and they don't kill people even bad people (Batman just break all their bone, don't know if that's worst than death lol)

Hence I like YX in this version the most of all the Ming members.  I have to admit that I have my suspicions when I watched the series, as it's kinda hard to read his motives but he seems to understand WJ and ZM the most among the members.  FY might also understand but he is clouded with ulterior motives too much that I am dissapointed at how he could agree to the planning by ZYZ to undermine WJ authority and plotted behind WJ's back. Perhaps they felt it's justified but it's disappointing to come from FY who had known ZM the longest. 

 

Thank you so much Lauren for liking the fic. I am brewing some ideas at this moment haha. Although I planned to post the next part of the chronicles of WJ-MM after their reunion in the grassland soon. 

 

 Also big thanks to all others who had contributed to fanfic, GIFs,  pics,  tidbits,  pics/screenshots. You all rock!! 

 

Peace all

Thank you Lauren! I love peaceful  grassland! Both Wu Ji and Zhao Min deserve a happy ending, yes, but for me, I still thought Wu Ji and Zhao Min still had way too many things to resolve between them before they can fully find peace. Communication, understanding, and forgiveness are such integral pieces to a healthy relationship, and I don't believe the drama gave WJ/ZM and us as viewers the proper closure they deserved. So because I love them so much, I would like to see that they eventually get to that point, but first, our lovely WJ/ZM must work through all of the sludge first. I must say, writing this story has helped me process a lot of the resentment I had towards the ending as well as my own personal relationships in real life. I truly appreciate everyone who is reading/lurking/commenting my inconsequential story; this forum is really awesome, and this drama has meant a lot to me. (Also, side note, IT'S SO COOL THAT YOU ARE A WU DANG STUDENT!)

I like YX ini this version too. For me this version YX is really respect WJ even though he doesn't like ZM but he still understand WJ love ZM and respect WJ decision to be with her . And i think YX also respect and admire ZM, i have a hint in first time, when they met FY first time and explain to them who is ZM. ( Who doesn't, right, a girl as smart and ruthless like her). And before shaolin arc, when ZM explain CK plan, i see YX and all the member actually know how smart ZM is. But since she is mongolian princess, they did not like her. Sometimes i wish ZM and HR lives in same era and become enemy I really want to know who is the smartest one. And sometime i wish the writer give ZM more time to fall in love with WJ. I want to see how badass ZM encounter WJ more longer as an enemy of all sect and Ming sect. :wub: . Don't you all think its funny. In LOCH the Male lead betrothed to mongol girl but in the end married Han girl (and founder of Ermei). 100 years later ML betrothed to Han girl ( Ermei leader)  but in the end choose mongolian girl..above that a princess( does ZM have relationship with HZ?? I really don't know) . B) karma does exist, don't you think

For me I like this YX because he by himself is handsome, interesting, a true wuxia hero and he truly the only person who understand Mie Jue lol (even though JXF later on also understand her teacher's true nature but she cannot betray her teacher and Er Mei by being together with YX)

YX I think always considered WJ first and quite pragmatist about Ming sect affairs. He always trust WJ's opinion even if he worries about it but at the end he always accept what WJ wanted. If he said he wants go with ZM to go find Dragon sabre fine but be careful; He suddenly wants to marry ZR fine, even if he thought WJ like ZM, YX will just accept; WJ wants to marry ZM fine also, he'll be the bad guy that lay down the law that nobody in Ming sect should question what WJ wanted to do with his private life. I think YX here is quite a free thinker kind of like ZSF in a sense. Whether YX like ZM or not that's quite hard to know since they don't interact much, but YX will give ZM the respect she is due since she is WJ's future wife.

And to YX, WJ will always be his benefactor that bring him his 2nd most precious person in his life, YBH.

 

The one who gives people doubt is probably how he always support ZYZ, but I think YX is just being pragmatist, ZYZ is a good commander and cunning but so far for YX what ZYZ did never hurt their cause, then YX has no reason not to support ZYZ.

He just got irked when ZYZ talk about the assassination and why it's a bad idea. I think YX already thought all of that out and he already accepted the risk just to finish the war quickly and to stop ZYZ accumulating more power and soldiers. That's why I think YX got sarcastic at the end after ZYZ finished his rant. 

 

For LOCH the founder of Er Mei is the daughter of GJ-HR. HR is the leader of Beggar's sect.

I think my dad told me that JY in an interview in jest said that he feels sorry for Hua Zeng(?)(the mongol girl that got betrothed) since he can't give GJ to her that's why in HSDS he wanted to give WJ to ZM as an apology lol, but I think this is when HSDS was just printed in books. Don't know if that's true :P

Ah you right! It GJ-HR daughter. Well it still related to them LOL. Yes, i'm glad JY think about HZ too ( i'm feel pity for her). And i'm also happy he create character like ZM. My most fav character above all his trilogy. I love HR too but ZM is better i guess. :wub:

 

I agree with all your said above. :D

YX is like ZSF in sense ( they should add scene with YX and ZSF more!). Maybe they both the only one who accept WJ and ZM, XX too if he still alive :unsure:

I get where u are coming from. In fact i love that couples in some dramas and novels that can overcome some obstacles before getting together, rather than being smooth sailing all the way. Love to the core of bones kind of feeling. But i myself do not have the creativity to create that kind of characters in story. So i am very excited to read yours. Currently my fanfic is at wj zm returning to china mainland wudang and again they are going to walk down that memory lane and face things that they need to face. However nothing exciting except for inner thoughts and some face to face communication with the wudang people or maybr zzr.

There is a chinese fanfic that have wj zm gj hr together in one story. Wj Zm travel to peach blossom accidentally and bump into the ghosts of gj hr, they only have memories of their teens.

In the story gj dunno its already ming dynasty. And hr like zm as a friend very much and often test her quiz 

Quite cute to read. 

 

I used to read Jinyong analytics article alot and often got very obsessed with them. There are many analysis about who is GJ HR descendents. Some suspect is xiao zhao due to her five elements bagua knowledge which is same as huang yao shi. Some suspect gj hr sent their small grandchildren to mongol to be raised by huazheng. Huazheng had some guilt towards gj mum's death so she agreed to it, as the dangerous place is also the safest place. And to some extent maybe zm and ruyang wang could be their descendents which is why the Te mu er family own the Yitian sword first before it landed into the hands of mie jue. There was also a saying that YX is related to Yang guo because YX knows the tan zhi sheng tong martial arts (Huang yaoshi taught YG before). There was also a saying that Leader Yang ding tian was yang guo descendents too (first adaptation his surname was 杨 instead of 阳)

 

Jinyong read but did not deny any of the possibilities as he allowed his readers to have vast imagination. 

 

These could become interesting points for fanfic authors

Wow. I love to read that. If it is in english. Lol. 

 

Yes. I have heard somewhere in novel about Yitian sword is belong to RY family. But not sure if it is stolen from Er mei when mongol invaded or not. Thats why ZM claimed it.

I think it was stolen back by prince ruyang soldier after mie jue brother gu hong zi lost a fight with YX

 

But somehow someone pointed out that way before guo xiang got the sword, the mongol grab it first. Can't remember which part wrote it
