Hahaha! Please don’t read it so much that you get sick of it (is that even possible?)! :lol: I’ve only read Pillow Book once and that was in 2017. I promised myself i’m not allowed to touch it again until at least 2019. I might have to pick it up again before the drama airs. I need to brush up on my knowledge and remember all the details ready for the drama! I love being able to compare. ^_^

wow you are seriously amazing

just one read and you got everything down already

and me read for the fourth time i can't even get the name straight yet

hahaha

but no worries, i am an avid reader, i can read books that i like for so many times and still wont get sick of it

one book from judith mcnaught that i still read over and over till now is "until you "

and i have that book more than 15 years already

for a forever virgin

he sure does know lot about seduction

remembering the bits when aranys/fengjiu was intoxicated with love potion and talk about what happen next according to the book she read from her aunt lor

hahaha

I know right...for a thousands year Virgin who supposedly

"Desireless, Emotionless,Loveless"  yet he fall in love HARD with Fengjiu because its was his fate and destiny like Zhonglin quote "who can really fight against destiny?"...and DH sure know how to seduce and charm someone he love..namely Fengjiu /Xiao Bai.

 

@Leslie Mtz CAbout his expertise in seduction..he was a "bookwormed" he definitely read and follow erotica novel:lol:..just like he was also expertise in martial art or magic..Donghua doesn't have a master or teacher because he its always an expert even for self-tought methods.

 

After live his life thousands years..despite countless beautiful woman and some other time he even see pretty boys:joy:(maybe  they think Donghua was Gay) sneaking into his bed chamber..not even once his celibacy tarnished..I salute him..I admire him:D.

 

 Just to added in Crown Prince in mortal realm in the drama.

1) I think maybe he is Donghua reincarnation bc there was a line in the book between FengJiu and Xie Guchou master of the underworld. When FJ ask Xie Guchou to make a soul from her shadow to follow DH shadow to do a repayments..save him whenever he is in danger, help him get whatever he wants.

 

XG ask FJ " what if he doesn't get what want and this repayment is still unsuccessful?.

 

FJ said " Didn't you say Dijun himself will be reborn into mortal realm in thirty years? If it's still unsuccessful thus time, I'll go and beg Dining when that time come. I'll ask him where Dijun has reincarnated to."

 

These was what FJ said when Xie Guchou tell her Aranya was dead.

"She's..dead, Does this mean the repayment also failed? It seem I will have to find o good day to go and beg Siming."

 

2) Dijun preserved ChenYe and Aranya essences in the twin four season tree..which afterward turned into a sappling. Donghua give it to Xixe to be planted in Qinan Palace..so after a millions years ChenYe/Aranya can reincarnated..

The thread is so active today. I'm so scared wondering how it'll be when the drama starts airing. Reminds me of Goblin's thread though with Goblin fans were allowed to spin a lot of theories which totally got smashed :sweatingbullets:. With pillow book it seems we almost know everything already. Makes me want them to change something maybe add liansong chengYu storyline to keep us on our toes. Something like what TMPB did. We weren't only interested about the main CP. This is because I think too much focusing on the main CP alone can garner negative feedback if you get what I mean. Xiao Yan and Jifeng's won't hold out because we all hate Jiheng.

i would rather ship xiao yan with bai gungun than with jiheng

hahaha

 

i wanna know more about zhe yan and bai zhen

also about su moye

we have more than just main otps in this story so i wont worry much

and if the writer want to promote her next book

then she also can use this drama to focus on lian song and cheng yu as well

 

for me

i will just be happy if we have 60% of each eps focused on our main otps hahaha

sorry i am here for dongfeng specially

others just take a backseat for me

as much as i want to say i am interested in other story

have to say i wont be as invested in other story aside from dongfeng

lor hahaha

 

making theories are fun since it allows you to imagine and let your thought runs wild

albeit that this one is rather limited since we all read the book and sorta limited ourselves with what we know from the book

but still i dont why we cant be a lil astray hahaha

let the imaginations go free

 

i think for this drama

we would have fun making comparison and noting similarities and differences we will caught in the drama from what we know from the book

that could be lively and engaging as well 

 

someone said before don't be hoping too much so we won't get too disappointed when the drama is different what we think it would be

i think that's important as well as keep your expectation low and be prepared to be blown by the drama

hahaha

Half of his heart. Now I'm impressed all over again. DongHua giving her the physical half of his heart is enough to forgive all wrongs.

that would be so nice 

i am seriously curious how these two started since in eternal love zhe yan was saying that he was actually in love with bai zhen's mom akak grandma fumi? first

i dunno if this was the same in the book

but if that is the case then how did that love transferred to bai zhen?

why?

not that i mind

hahaha

and seeing how they adore one another (at least in the drama that is) makes me even more curious

i was busy staring at dilreba didnt even realise the ring on her finger

so that's supposedly the infamous donghua's ring 

i wanna see the full view too hahaha

 

aside from the drama i am also looking forward for the ost for this drama

i love love ost songs from eternal love

and i also adore from the king's woman and the flame's daughter (especially the one dilraba sings herself)

so now i am looking forward for the ost as well

hopefully kind heart would translate the songs when it comes out

it becomes more meaningful when i know what the songs is all about

hahaha

Speaking of OST, i suppose those of you who watch youtube would know the 3 songs most frequently associated with Pillow Book the last few years. There’s one written by Tang Qi herself, and 2 written by superfans whom i presume are also musicians in the industry. Linking them all here in case you don’t already know them: (Click on the bold blue underlined font)

 

• The one written by Tang Qi

There’s a high chance Tang Qi’s one will feature as one of the songs in the drama, though i doubt it will be the opening or closing song as it’s musically and lyrically not that great (not saying it’s bad).

 

• The one written by a superfan/musician

This one is actually more popular and well-known than Tang Qi’s one. My favourite. So many fan videos using this song. The lyrics are AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL and the melody is too, but unfortunately, the melody is borrowed from the OST of another drama, so it’s very unlikely this song will be used in Pillow Book’s OST.

 

• The same song as above (dramatic version)

 

• Another one written by a superfan/musician (dramatic version)

I don’t know much about this one.

 

Often fans get so attached to these songs but dramas want to promote new songs and certain singers. So don’t be too disappointed if you already love these songs but they don’t feature in the drama. It’s just like this beautiful song about Bai Qian & Yeh Hua written by a superfan/musician which everyone loved and associated with 10MPB for many years, but it didn’t get used in the drama or the film (note: this is a fan-made video using footage from the film).

I was so confused in the books for a bit, but Grandma Fumi isn’t Bai Zhi’s wife, it’s Fengjiu’s maternal grandmother. Zhe Yan fought with Bai Zhi for the Fox Queen’s love, and realized that they were compatible as friends so they became friends. I think Fox Queen choose Bai Zhi anyway. Bai Zhen supposedly took a liking to Zhe Yan from childhood (can’t remember if this is in the book or just the drama) and tried to kiss him at 1 years old! It seems that it’s common to pawn your children off in QingQiu so the Fox clan just gave Bai Zhen to Zhe Yan to look after and now they’re inseparable. Plus I’m sure it helps that Bai Zhen is so pretty :D

Yes, this was in the drama. Everything implied in the book about their homosexual relationship was included in the drama, as subtly as it was in the book. :D

ah i got the name wrong, so fumi was the mother of fengjiu's mom... ergh so confusing

hahaha

that's why i shouldn't stop reading pillow book for now so many info are still very much elusive from me

hahaha

 

like for example

my slow brain has only understand now that fengjiu and donghua fate has already changed when they met again during the bai qian's bride escort in the beginning of pillow book since that would be aligned with the time stamp of their history together

i only understand now that the story should be like 

  • fengjiu met donghua at mount something, he saves her, she felt indebted to him
  • fengjiu went to taichen to become maid to pay for him, fate didn't allow her to meet him though
  • fengjiu changed to fox to help donghua, again fate intervene, they are together but fengjiu was seen as only  baby fox
  • back to qingqiu, isolation
  • donghua shadow was sent to fanyin valley
  • fengjiu's shadow follow suit (tragic story of aranya and chen ye)
  • fengjiu's shadow come back (after the death of aranya, donghua's shadow didn't return as chen ye is not dead)
  • fengjiu went to mortal world once again with the idea of paying debts
  • donghua remain sleeping/recuperating i dunno...
  • fengjiu come back and continue her isolation in qingqiu
  • then we come to first chapter of pillow book where fengjiu rise from the water because of siming's story (during this time stone of destiny has rewritten their fate) hence they keep on meeting one another, and donghua keep getting attracted to her even though she did her best to avoid donghua 

correct me if i'm wrong

 

if that is the case i would say that the fate between donghua and fengjiu is quite strong already

they kept being pulled to one another without even realising it

even when they are torn apart and misunderstanding arises, there were always something that brings them back together again

that would be siming, lian song and su moye

hahaha

 

at first i thought their fate changes after they come back from aranya's dream then i got confused because even they come back the ball was already close to the bottom of the hill, no longer started rolling as it should be

 

now i finally understand that it has been rolling for quite a while already

lor

 

but i need to add also

because of donghua query about their destiny/fate together at the end of aranya's dream

once again stone of destiny rewritten their fate

hence the trials (of love) they faced after they got out of aranya's dream

rite?

but fate remain strong and they still are for one another and no one else

 

like seriously i need to reread everything so many times to comprehend something or anything

gosh hahaha

so embarrassing...

one thing that i'm glad about eternal love is that they didnt hide these subtle things

it's fun to watch and decipher it on you own and since it is mentioned that way also in the book

i like it

hahaha

 

i hope pillow book will also carry that subtle signs as well

maybe we will get more story about the lady qin wanting bai zhen to herself and dare to steal bai zhen from zhe yan

hahaha

the new bai zhen and zhe yan honestly look like those who are the same age, they look good together (still missing the old zhe yan though for now)

i wonder if bifang would make his appearances in this drama too

:)

 

@redfoxprincess thanks for the songs, i really like the song from tang qi more than the second one

i recognize it as the first song i listen to dongfeng on youtube so it stuck with me

last night curious about that song again, i searched and found the eng subs for that song

so perfect

lovely song

 

i am now wondering the singers that would be doing ost for pillow book

as i am not at all familiar with singers

i only heard a few from my youtube ost binge watching few weeks back

jason zhang is quite nice, not only his song for eternal love is amazing, i also like the song he did from flame's daughter too

who else?

need to listen to others more i guess 

:P

Yup! The two met again because of Chen Ye and Aranya’s unfinished fate. Had that fate not been unfinished, then they would’ve continued on with their lives never having their lives be tangled. It’s why the immortal that guards fate tells Dong Hua that’s he’s able to truly see Fengjiu finally after thousands of years.

Yeah I like that scene in the drama though so I think of it as canon. Though the drama wasn’t THAT subtle since ZheYan calls him ZhenZhen which is a couple-y pet name same as QianQian and it also used language one would use to describe a married couple. But I think The Pillow Books were less subtle than the Ten Miles book.

Yes! A+++ :D I’ve really appreciated your input from the beginning since you joined this forum. You’ve shared some really funny thoughts and bounced ideas with me and others in a really fun and respectful way. The best thing about you is you go back and re-read stuff when you realise you’ve misunderstood something or needed to re-familiarise yourself. There have been a few in the past who refuse to be ‘corrected’, even when given page numbers to read and thoughtful and thorough explanations, and can’t be bothered to simply open the book and re-read and think about it - yet they keep coming back to argue the same mistaken point and end up confusing others. So thankyou for your post and all the clarity it might bring to others too. Pillow Book has a very complicated and convoluted plotline, its timeline is all over the place - this is Tang Qi’s style and i actually love it because it works like a thriller. I love beginning in the middle of the story, figuring out things in the past while things are still developing in the present, then everything comes together and reaches a climax.

 

For those who liked @chubby^green^‘s timeline, please let me continue it to the end of the book, so we have it all complete now:

Spoiler

• Feng Jiu keeps bumping into Dong Hua wherever she goes in the Nine Heavens - both because fate is working for them now, and because Dong Hua is really noticing her now - banquet pot incident, blind dates incident, opera singers incident, hot spring incident, drunk Feng Jiu incident, handkerchief incident.

• Feng Jiu tries to avoid Dong Hua by turning into a handkerchief, but Dong Hua takes this ‘handkerchief’ to bed.

• The next day, Dong Hua fights with Yan Chiwu, the ‘handkerchief’ is tied to his sword hilt - Feng Jiu and Yan Chiwu fall into Fanyin Valley.

• Feng Jiu and Yan Chiwu spend 6 months in Fanyin Valley disguising as neighbouring Owl Clan students, and find Ji Heng already there.

• At first opportunity during the ‘opening season’, Dong Hua enters Fanyin Valley to rescue Feng Jiu, and also to deal with Miao Luo (manifestation of the Hui Ming Realm toxins).

• Dong Hua and Feng Jiu stay for the Saha Fruit Competition - he keeps her in his force field to train her for 10 days. They share an accidental kiss - Liang Song and Ah Li sees this. They are here to watch the competition.

• Feng Jiu wanted to take Dong Hua out to dinner, but ‘everyone’ joins them - a flying plate somehow hits Yan Chiwu’s face.

• Dong Hua sneaks into Feng Jiu’s bedroom to rub medicinal paste on her bruises. They get flirty and ‘almost’ kiss.

• Feng Jiu wins the competition, Dong Hua switches out the Saha Fruit reward, Feng Jiu steals the fruit from the hall and is trapped by the pythons and the floating ‘Aranya’s Dream’.

• Dong Hua enters the trap and takes care of her in some unknown ‘waiting room’ for 3 months where they share the most ear-splitting ovaries-exploding tongue kiss.

• Dong Hua puts Feng Jiu’s body in a coffin and removes her soul - he enters the ‘main part’ of Aranya’s Dream where he intends to implant her soul into the womb of a pregnant lady to let it heal. In this ‘main part’ of Aranya’s Dream, everyone’s memory and recognition is altered due to the creator (Chen Ye)’s imperfect magic.

• Feng Jiu mysteriously wakes up in Aranya’s body. Su Moye comes to her rescue and replaces his ‘past version’. He could take her out now, but asks her to stay and live out Aranya’s life to figure out how she died.

• Dong Hua enters the dinner party as ‘Xize’ and spends time taking care of the pregnant sister. Su Moye realises it is Dong Hua but hides this from both Dong Hua and Feng Jiu.

• ‘Aranya’ and ‘Xize’ go together to see the Yue Ling flowers.

• Feng Jiu is locked and tortured inside the Jiuqu Cage for 5 days. The Celestial Fire occurs, she is rescue by Chen Ye, then dumped on the side of the road.

• Dong Hua overhears Feng Jiu telling Su Moye everything she has done for Dong Hua - he realises how much Feng Jiu loves him and all that she has suffered.

• Feng Jiu is drugged with an aphrodisiac and gets in bed with Dong Hua - he has to refrain from doing anything while she is still in Aranya’s body.

• Dong Hua fights the river snake, Feng Jiu is back in her own body, and they share another passionate tongue kiss in the cave.

• Dong Hua and Feng Jiu attend the Maiden Festival together. Dong Hua can’t seem to stop kissing her. She thinks ‘Xize’ has been poisoned by the river snake.

• Feng Jiu acts a scene to trick Chen Ye to continue believing her disguise as Aranya. Dong Hua sees and misunderstands that she likes Chen Ye. Feng Jiu realises she is in love with ‘Xize’. They confess to each other and make love.

• Dong Hua spends a week with Feng Jiu living in bliss.

• Dong Hua leaves to complete the Miao Hua mirror. Feng Jiu is lured out by Chen Ye - she encounters Aranya’s soul and learns the truth about Aranya’s story from Aranya’s POV.

• Dong Hua and Su Moye complete the Miao Hua mirror and learn that Chen Ye is Dong Hua’s shadow, and Aranya is Feng Jiu’s shadow - this answers why Feng Jiu’s soul did not implant in the womb but went straight into Aranya’s body. This is the missing link.

• Dong Hua and Su Moye confront Chen Ye, and Dong Hua holds an unconscious Feng Jiu - they all look in the Miao Hua mirror to learn Chen Ye’s POV and all his misunderstandings with Aranya.

• Dong Hua consults the Guardian of the Stone of Fate and learns that he and Feng Jiu have weak fate, but at least they have some fate -  transferred to them by Aranya and Chen Ye thanks to Feng Jiu’s perseverance.

• Chen Ye drowns himself, Dong Hua retrieves both Aranya and Chen Ye’s souls and stores them in a small tree to plant with the real Xize. Aranya’s Dream collapses and disappears.

• Dong Hua takes the memory-altering pill from Liang Song and gives it to Feng Jiu. She wakes up with all memories of ‘Xize’ in Aranya’s Dream replaced as if she knew it was Dong Hua the whole time - hence, they make love again and continue their relationship without a hitch.

• Dong Hua takes Feng Jiu back to Tai Chen Palace where she spends 10 days making her sword case. In this time, Dong Hua secretly registers their marriage legally.

• Dong Hua attends Feng Jiu’s Bing Cang Ceremony in Qing Qiu. Everything goes smoothly - Dong Hua helps defeat Nie Chuyin and it is revealed to all that Dong Hua and Feng Jiu are married.

• Dong Hua and Feng Jiu spend a blissful 10 days at the Blue Sea while Feng Jiu recovers. After the bird performance, she dances for him and they make love on their last night at the Blue Sea.

• Dong Hua and Feng Jiu return to Tai Chen Palace the night before their wedding. Yan Chiwu breaks in to their bedroom, presenting Ji Heng’s father’s claw. Dong Hua leaves to save Ji Heng.

• Feng Jiu returns to the Blue Sea the next day. The wedding banquet occurs without Dong Hua. Feng Jiu waits for 9 days. She hears news from her grandfather Bai Zhi that Dong Hua was with Ji Heng in the Demon Clan. She returns to Qing Qiu and waits another 2 days.

• Zheyan tells Feng Jiu she is pregnant. She leaves for the mortal realm, births her son there and raises Bai Gun Gun by herself for 200 years.

• Dong Hua searches relentlessly throughout the celestial realm for 200 years. He forces Feng Jiu to return by declaring this is the final time he will accept any new immortals.

• Feng Jiu brings Ye Qingti to the Nine Heavens. She meets with Dong Hua, he gives her a ring made from half his heart, and she cuts ties with him.

• Dong Hua leaves to the Blue Sea to sacrifice himself to vanquish the Huiming Realm toxins once and for all.

• Zhong Lin explains EVERYTHING to Feng Jiu. This is the first time she learns about the Huiming Realm, Dong Hua’s 100-year sleep, that Dong Hua never went to the mortal realm and it was all a cover-up - the Emperor was just an insignificant mortal.

• Feng Jiu finds Dong Hua in the Blue Sea - she enters the ‘unbreakable’ force field and chooses to die with him. Bai Qian, Ye Hua and Mo Yuan arrive just in time and unexpectedly breaks the force field, saving Dong Hua and Feng Jiu.

Pillow Book has a very complicated and convoluted plotline, its timeline is all over the place - this is Tang Qi’s style and i actually love it because it works like a thriller. I love beginning in the middle of the story, figuring out things in the past while things are still developing in the present, then everything comes together and reaches a climax.

 

I agree! I liked Ten Miles for that same reason, I like the disjointed timeline. I found The Pillow Books to be much harder to read so it took a couple of rereads for me to understand it fully, and now I really appreciate the intricacies and details. I wish she would finish the other stories. Part of me is conflicted about the plagiarism allegations though because it taints my favorite series a bit. 

 

By the way, I believe I PM’d you my email for YeHua’s epilogue. Did you happen to send it yet? It’s my subscription email so it’s a bit of a mess. I don’t want to have missed it.
