I'm completely gobsmacked by the criticisms of young Joseph's performance. So far he's nailed the role in all its essence.  He's probably the most age-appropriate ZWJ that I've seen. And I love how he

About to get sentimental on you guys. I think I've finally realized why I'm borderline obsessed with this version of ZM/ZWJ, as opposed to just being a passerby viewer in the previous versions. This v

@kur4p1k4 thank you kurapika for the information. ZM and ZWJ are indeed the best couple beating all the odds. I think they are representing most of us people so we can feel the love.

@LaurenPanna  Nice- JY tied his novels together actually better than I realized!

 

@chipz03 See you at AOOO

 

All, another chapter of Haojiejie up :)

 

@kur4p1k4  The Ad is fun!  Oddly while I find Joseph very good looking at ZWJ he seems only so-so in the ad.  Yukee thought looks gorgeous in the ad!  And yes, someone who works at MAC is a HSDS fan! :) (#HSDS fans rule the world!)

Thank you Yitian,  see u at AO3. Btw,  love your fanfics too. Keep up the good works!!!!  :thumbsup:

 

I really hope we can see YC-JZ soon in another drama. At the very least, their chemistry is just too good to only be showcased in one drama. 

 

A short clip of YC interview. I think she talked about the BTS bit when they were filming the boat pushing scene. I tried to understand what she said,  and with my limited understanding (please correct me if I am wrong),  I think YC said that during the of the filming, because of the sad nature of the materials, she didn't feel that good (??), so JZ came to her and told her to be happier because if she was sad,  there's no way he could be happy (if this is indeed correct, that's quite sweet that he is happy when she is happy. Oops,  sorry for the rambling :P). At the end,  when they were actually filming,  he ended up making them laugh? (???)

Sorry for back to back post all.

 

While waiting for my AO3 account to be up, Here's Part 6 (7?, I lost track haha) of my previous fanfic that chronicles the aftermath of WJ-ZM's reunion at the grassland. This is completely separate from the dark Wuji piece, and this piece is lighter to some extend.

 

This part seems like a filler without plot though hahaha. 

 

There's some part of this piece that is inspired by the last episode of Legend of Zhen Huan (one of the best drama about back palace 'hou gong' intrigues starring Sun Li. I highly recommend this drama:D), on the

punishment received by Empress Yishiu, which basically erased any records of her as empress.

 

I was thinking this bit from Legend of Zhen Huan could fit nicely (in my mind, at least :D) since in real history, Wang Baobao did not have sister named Min-min as well. So, I took the inspiration and incorporated in this part of my fanfic.

 

I plan to write a sliiiiightly more rated (nothing explicit though) story for the next (or one after next) chapters, but I will likely just post them on AO3 though :sweatingbullets:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Three months had passed ever since Zhang Wuji had found Zhao Min in the grassland, and two months had gone by ever since they found their peace. Ever since they abandoned their hurt and disappointment. Ever since he embraced his beloved princess back in his arms again.

 

Zhang Wuji had made up his mind to ask for his Min-min’s hand when the night left them for another new day. He had dreamed of their future together, and it was time to chase this dream. He had just started walking toward the tent when he heard a distant voice from the front gate. A voice that brought back the memory of an early encounter with Zhao Min years ago at Wudang. The voice of her loyal vassal. A-San.

 

‘Zhang Wuji! I came here not to fight with you. I came here to have a friendly talk to you!!’

 

Somehow Wuji doubted that their talk would be as friendly as the older man had claimed, but he cautiously reserved his judgment. At the end of the day, it had been A-San who had accompanied Zhao Min back to the grassland. It was A-San who had kept her safe and sound throughout her journey. A fact that, if Wuji dared to be honest, still embittered him to no end.

 

“Why don’t you tell junzhu that you would be gone for a bit? I don’t want her to be worried when she cannot find you,”

 

A-San’s voice suddenly brought back his attention. Wuji hesitated for a moment before turning to the hut to inform his Min-min that he would be back soon. Highly alert, Wuji quietly followed A-San to the back stream where he loved to sit with Min-min.

 

“Zhang Wuji, what do you think you are doing? You are not welcomed here!”

 

Wuji’s suspicion was confirmed. Not a pleasant talk indeed.

 

“What do you plan to do? Playing around with junzhu’s feeling?”

 

“You have won the war and forced her brother to flee. Destroying her family is not enough for you?”

 

“Are you here to chase for her forgiveness to make yourself feel good?”

 

Several times Wuji was trying to retort A-San’s rambling before another barrage of charges was dumped on him. But the last accusation hit him where it hurt the most. It did not help that A-San’s fist had also unpleasantly landed on his jaw, pushing him off balance.  A wave of irritation surged within him, prompting him to catch A-San’s fist with his right hand as his former enemy tried to punch him again.

 

“A-San, I don’t know whether what I said will make you believe me, and I don’t care if you don't. I have hurt her, I will not deny that. I cannot deny that. It’s my sin that I will bring to the grave. I came here for her forgiveness, that’s true. For my consolation, that’s also true. But most importantly, I want her to heal. I need her to heal. At the end of the day, it does not matter if she refuse to forgive me. So long that I can make her let go of all her resentment, that’s enough. I want her to be happy again. I need her to be happy!”

 

Wuji could feel his own anger rose, but he still held back his attack. He refrained himself from fighting A-San when he felt the other man’s body started to loosen up. He could see flashes of sadness in A-San’s face, a face that he had once looked at with fury some years ago.

 

Fury that he could no longer find.

 

Perhaps these past years had washed away his hatred toward the older man and his brothers for what they had done toward his parents and his Wudang uncles. Perhaps the fact that his own vassals had plotted underhanded methods to achieve their goal had made him realized the harsh reality of their battles. Things had not been and could not be ideal in the battlefield, as both sides needed to fight for their causes. No matter what strategies that they were forced to take, no matter how bad they could lose, both sides could not easily admit defeat. And it broke his soul to see the horror that the long battles had brought upon.   

 

“Do you know how bad you have hurt junzhu? Not only you almost make her lose her head, but you have erased her from history. You have taken away her identity!”

 

A-San’s voice was breaking as he sat down. The once young and strong soldier suddenly looked so frail and tired. Wuji felt his heart stopped when he heard A-San last sentences. He did not understand.

 

Junzhu has not told you, hasn’t she? I should not be surprised. She’s so strong and stubborn even since she was born”

 

Wuji had sat quietly beside A-San when the older man finally talked. He suddenly remembered that A-San must have seen Zhao Min growing up, being with the family years before she had been born. If only their circumstances were different, he would love to hear many childhood stories of a certain stubborn lady that he had loved so deeply.

 

“When the emperor…former emperor found out that junzhu had released an important prisoner, the palace was livid. They wanted to punish the whole family, even us the subordinates. All of us. But junzhu was not willing to let anyone take the blame but herself. How could she let her family suffer because of her? She is too noble to let that happen. So the palace has sentenced her to death”

 

Wuji closed his eyes as that painful memory flooded his mind. She had almost lost her life, but where had he been? Still trying to keep his feeling to her at bay, still foolishly falling deep into Zhiruo’s lies and schemes. He almost forgot about the other man when A-San continued.

 

“That time, I honestly wished I could help her. Junzhu had been treating my brothers and I really well, respecting us as her senior. Yet, when she was at her most precarious moment, we could not help her. I don’t know whether it’s best to just let her face the punishment or to find a way to save her. Days went by, and the palace was kind enough to let her spend her last days with her family. But times still move forward, and that day finally came. There she was, on the stage, waiting for her execution. She never waver, and I remembered hating you even more, Zhang Wuji. All because of you! If you never came to her life, she would already be a crown princess! She would have married the crown prince and live happier life!”

 

Against his will, Wuji felt another surge of irritation at the mention of the crown prince. Deep inside his conscience and his mind, he knew, he understood that he did not have the right to be angry, to be jealous. But his heart had decided otherwise.

 

“When that traitor Ku Tou Tou barged in to save her, for a brief moment, I honestly felt a sense of relief. At the very least, she’s safe. Even the prince and young prince were secretly relieved. How could a father and brother willingly watched their beloved family member got executed like that? But our reliefs were short-lived. The palace was enraged that a promising young princess, daughter of an honorable prince and a formidable war general, someone who has commanded over troops of their soldiers, and someone they had considered a match for the heir had associated herself with their most dangerous enemies. It took a tremendous effort from the prince and young prince to beg for the emperor’s forgiveness. The prince and young prince had to make greater sacrifice to save the whole family this time. The Prince has to personally offer to..to kill his…traitor daughter.”

 

Wuji could hear that A-San’s voice cracked even more as the man recounted the turmoil that Zhao Min had to endure.

 

For him. All for him.

 

Yet, he had failed to protect her during her dark days. He had turned his back when she needed him the most.

 

“But the palace was not pacified. They wanted to erase every existence of this traitor princess who had let them down so badly. They wanted her to cease from existence forever. So they issued an edict that any mention of her would be deleted from any record in the history. They did not even spare the prince’s family record. You see, from that day, Shao Min Junzhu never existed. Min-min Temur had never been born in the family. Ever since that day, the prince never had any daughter named Min-min Temur, our young Prince never ever had a sister named Min-min Temur. It’s like..she just…she just disappears. No name can be put on her tomb, no family, no identity. Junzhu has always been proud of her family, so this sentence was even worse than a death sentence for her. From the moment that traitor took her away from the execution stage, she had existed merely as a lowly nameless fugitive, the biggest and most vilified traitor of her own country!”

 

“So the young prince had hatched a desperate plan to fake his sister’s death. They could not save her identity, but at least she would still be alive. That’s the most important for her family. It took a lot of effort for her brother to secretly arrange for her to settle in this piece of land. She could not even put her parents’ names on the tomb she built, lest people will find out her true identity! She might have greeted new friends here, but she could not get too close to others. If they found out about her past accusations, it would be the end for her. She has been living in the shadow with no past she could share!”

 

Wuji was frozen with shock as A-San continued. He knew she had suffered for him, but he never knew that she had to endure so much more than he had ever known.

 

For him. All for him.

 

Silently, Wuji walked back to the hut after his conversation with A-San. His former nemesis had recounted their journey back to the grassland. Their problems had never been about bad persons or enemies threatening their safety along the journey, but her old injuries flaring up. If it had been the former, A-San and his wife could easily tackle the issues due to their high level of martial arts skills. But it had been the latter that drove them frantic with desperation. The residual cold poison from her shoulder’s injury and her other old wounds had flared up amidst her heartbreaks and their tiring journey, but A-San and his wife had no medicinal knowledge or skills. How could they save her if they never knew how to differentiate one medicinal herb from the other? There were times when they could only helplessly watched their young lady suffered, as his wife held on to their lady’s shivering hand, and A-San felt new waves of hatred toward the man who had inflicted all these sufferings on the once bright and promising young princess.

 

Toward him.

 

A deep sigh escaped from Wuji’s lips as he inched closer to the hut. Wuji had to admit that he felt a new sense of gratitude toward the older man and his family. For all they had done for her. For all sacrifices they made to give her a more comfortable life. The throbbing pain in his jaw had been forgotten, but the heaviness inside his heart felt suffocating.

 

‘A-San. I promise you. From now on, I will never leave her alone anymore. She will not be nameless anymore. She will take my surname. Even though I cannot give her old life back and I cannot give her the same luxurious life as she has had before, I will give her all the things I can give her. I promise you that she will not have to live alone anymore, that she will never have to worry about her future any longer. I promise you.’

 

He had earnestly given A-San his oath, as a man, to protect Min-Min, and he would keep it. Even if it means giving his life away, he would keep his promise. He would protect her.

 

Her happiness above his. Her needs above his.

 

Her before him. Always her before him.

Cool i love it!!! 

I actually cried reading about her plight that you wrote. She has been through such a hard life

 

Coincidentally, in my grassland reunion in lofter, i also created a man named *le ba chi* who accompanied junzhu back to mongol and had been protecting her throughout the three years wait. She was pregnant with twins though. :p

 

But i like your A san who protected his owner. So loyal, with integrity.

 

if you guys don't mind reading chinese, and reading my plain storyline.

I shall shamelessly share my A03 link here. :P

In LOCH and ROCH is it already Yuan dinasty ?? Not Jin dinasty?? :huh:

@chipz03 i like your story telling. I also imagine and i want WJ know, how suffer ZM was when she choose to betray her emperor. Coincidence your story just like what i imagine. How she suffer, her family effort to save her, and her connection to crown prince and her possibility to become crown princess. I also want WJ regret ( so that he will treat her well) when he trying to accept ZR to become his wife and act like (fake) lovey dovey, somewhere a person whom he really love, suffer a great deal for Him. And somehow your story compelling that side-untold-story.:wub:

Still Jin dynasty but they knew/predicted  the mongol would win. From my understanding, they made the sword and saber for later generations to one day fight back against the mongol.

Both  @sophiesyc and @LaurenPanna are correct just different series

 

@polar15

Before LOCH timeline in history there are accepted 3 competing dynasties for control of mainland China.

Western Xia dynasty, Jin dynasty and Southern Song dynasty.

 

Before LOCH, Jin dynasty was the strongest led by the Jurchen ppl, they managed to beat back and took the northern part of the Song dynasty, and later on during ROCH the story was set in Southern Song.

Southern Song as part of the armistice (I think?) with Jin accepted Jin's request to execute Yue Fei, their best and most loyal general and later on canonised as Chinese folk heroes because he was killed unjustly and despicably by his own people. Later on Yue Fei's tactic book called Wu Mu Yi Shu is in the hand of GJ and later on it will be hidden in the Dragon Sabre, which will start the HSDS storyline.

 

During LOCH, Jin dynasty was nearing the end since the Mongols managed to unite under Genghis Khan. Also they were hated by the Southern Song so they pretty much got flanked from both sides and got destroyed by the Mongols. Jin was a pretty nasty rulers, in history any Jurchen soldiers will really rape any Han women they meet, that's why that scene in the beginning is important about GJ's and YK's parents, to show how despicable Jurchen are compared to Mongols, also to show Wanyan Honglie's knightly and how different his conduct from his people towards YK's mother.

 

During ROCH, Southern Song is in last gasp, even though even then it will still take quite a few years before they will completely fall and Yuan dynasty was established.

 

If you never watched Demi-Gods Semi-Devils (DGSD)/ Tian Long Ba Bu (TLBB), you should try watching since it's loosely connected to Condor trilogy and its historical timeline could be counted as a prequel of Condor trilogy. And it has my fave JY character Qiao Feng, a true tragic hero story

 

Side note:

Interesting tidbit, every dynasty in China has an accepted family name for the emperor's family like Tang dynasty is Li (李)Han dynasty is Liu (刘) so like if you have the same surname as them it's kind of like you're from the same village or same family tree, no matter how distant you are.

Do you know Zhao Min's (赵敏) surname is the surname of the emperor's family of the Song dynasty? And also in the earlier version, the newspaper serialization of HSDS, Zhao Min original name is Zhao Ming (赵明) before JY changed it to Zhao Min. I don't know what intention JY has, but it's quite interesting to note and guess  :blush:

Great explanation!!!

Which is why i really love jin yong novels as they follow history v closely!!! 

Qiao feng and Ah Zhu relationship is my next favourite couple of JY universe. I always cried at Ah Zhu death no matter which version i was watching 

 

They are really a pair of tragic couple. I always feel super heartpain for qiao feng

I love this kind of BTS wish they have more :P

 

https://weibo.com/tv/v/HxnanBQxS?fid=1034:4379538763796487

 

Also TVB has a show called Dong Zhang Xi Wang <东张西望> which XZ got interviewed here. They will also have an interview with ZWJ-YX-ZZR all three together soon, even though I'm not sure where the interview will be conducted, HK or mainland (should be mainland, I guess). ZM will not be there, which is understandable I suppose since Yukee is still filming Yue Shang Zhong Huo <月上重火>  I believe

 

If any canto speaker want to see the video interview of XZ/Kabby Hui go to the link below, I got that from a Douban group.

This compilation of BTS scenes is really cute.

 

 

Adorable!  Although I was a little shocked to be reminded that there was a BTS where he pretends to kiss Bambi and she pretends to hit him.... it's a fun BTS just that because they're in costume, I had a moment of "Noooo!  ZWJ would NEVER, even in jest, kiss ZZR!" ;))) Ok, I get it, I'm a little too enthused about my OTP.
