She didn’t want to go the demon mountain at all. She was brought there by some stray wind.

 

Drama POV in Ep1, she and her classmates talked of going, and she ended up there when Jing Wei chased her afterwards. Jing Wei admits to that too to Zhe Yan and Bai Zhen.

After DH pretty much plays pranks on her and blackmails her, why would she trust him with that valuable information? He is too unpredictable.

 

True. Still, she could have told him why, since he already heard that she went to mortal realm in the past. The outcome can still be different if she had been honest with the purpose, instead of a choice of someone getting cured versus satisfying someone's curiosity on how pinpo fruit pastry tastes.

 

54 minutes ago, Megan said:

DH was gone. By the time she thought he would return,  the fruit would possibly be already eaten.

 

Which was quite bad as she almost lost her life from the serpents' attacks, but turned out to be the chance for FJ and DH to be together. 

 

IMO, it's quite a lesson on how to present your cause to get the favour. Anyhow, even if the outcome was bad initially, at the least the Dream Realm and its creator was resolved.

Miao Luo was stuck in a tree prison until she broke free remember. Her legs were trapped and her arms were held in place.

 

Wasn't that tree imprisoning her a manifestation of Dong Hua's use of his own cultivation? She got free after she had used the Soul Jade and got back her red Qis, while he was weakened and poisoned.

It’s a wonder why Dong Hua didn’t just use the starlight ward to imrpison Miao Luo instead of using a tree

I find it annoying that as Si Ming is explaining about how Dong Hua is so much weaker than Miao Luo, he sounds like he is blaming FJ for being the reason DH gave up his power to save her in Aranya’s Dream. Sheesh. It was his fault she ended up there!

To say it is completely FJ or DH's fault would be wrong. Both of them made questionable decisions.

 

As annoying as it may be. I think FJ needs know her impulsiveness caused dire consequences for people around her and possibly the universe. If her family, friends and DH explained things to her earlier on, FJ may not have made such impulsive decisions.

 

I disagree that it is DH's fault that FJ ended up in Aranya's Dream. It is DH's fault for taking FJ to the fight and ending with her in Fan Yin Valley. It is DH's fault for taking the fruit FJ rightfully won, but it isn't DH's fault FJ decided to steal the fruit. FJ have the autonomy to decide if it is worth risking her life to get the fruit, and she did it, even though she must have known the odds were stacked against her. 

Similarly, FJ can't be blamed for DH's decision to save her. DH knew the risk and accepted for a chance to save FJ, it was well worth gambling the chance of the world ending.

Yes, I agree that DH could not have forced FJ to decide to steal the fruit. He did put it out of her range by switching it out with peaches but FJ should have not insisted on stealing it. After all, stealing is stealing. She should have stolen it from that evil girl who was clinging on to DH. Hahahaha!

It would be risky leaving the fruit in JH hands when it might be eaten at any second.

 

Also, I’m currently watching the last episode. What does ML mean when she says DH made her a demon…?

I can’t remember if I posted this before but Jiheng’s monologue makes no sense.

since when did she change herself to please DH? She was always prim and proper.

and everyone could see FJ acting huffy and childish with DH. If JH is relieved she can act like that around XY, why not DH?

What a twist it would have been, hahaha!

Stealing it from Ji Heng will not be suicidal compared to the 4 giant serpents guarding Jieyou Spring.  Xiao Yan would certainly back her since he reckons that Feng Jiu won it and therefore owns it.

It can be that since there was an uneasy truce between the Gods and the Demons, and that Dong Hua chose to live in Jiuchongtian, Miao Luo as his enemy had to side with the Demons. 

 

One more thing. IMO, recalling Lian Song's remarks on the way possessed Xiao Yan was attacking Feng Jiu at Ep33 as hallmark of being a Demon, Miao Luo's remark of Dong Hua making her a Demon is an acknowledgement of their differences: he is calmly springing surprise, unexpected moves against her, whereas she has to rely on strength and viciousness to battle him.

Which monologue was that? Perhaps she changed when she was in Fanyin Valley after interacting only with him every ten years.

Ji Heng was not interested with Xiao Yan so whoever was with him didn't matter to her. She had seen that Dong Hua's very tolerant of Feng Jiu's antics though, and even exchanged rooms with Xiao Yan to be closer to her, so...

Yeah, she saw how FJ attracted DH. But JH didn’t really change her personality like she said did when XY returned after ML died.

The book already made me cry. The things she did for love. That sacrifice of her ripping Cheng Yu’’s memories out :bawling: made me cry so hard.

 

They won’t adapt until the full 4 volumes are out. Next year she will publish the remaining 2 volumes. Right now we are at half the story. I will be posting lotus step translation regularly for the remainder of this year on the blog.

Aranya’s Dream was where Tang Qi wanted them to spend time together. This was the device with which the couple will create a permanent bond to each other. 
 

It is her spirited nature that attracted him to her in the first place so I really don’t see it as a flaw or a fault as well.
 

As much as she denied his existence later while she was in the mortal world, she never stopped loving him as that bond cannot be broken.

Who else thought while reading the novels that the night pearls would be floating while used as light? :sweatingbullets:

I also thought about this. Especially for the part that it was use to also illuminate banquets, for example when Fengjui got drunk and Donghua carried her. It was describe to ornament trees or something like that. I kind of struggle to imagine it, so it must be floating?:sweat_smile::joy:

 

 

Btw, that drawing is really pretty! :please:Is it a fanart? Where can it be found?

It's something I came accross in Pinterest. It is not FJ per se, but her dress colours and style are very similar to the original FJ illustration, even how her hair was done. Also, there's that teeny-weeny red mark on the forehead, a feature which is identified to FJ. ^_^

Wow that's uncanny! I also thought it was Fengjui base from the forehead birthmark :sweatingbullets:

but it's really meticulously made.

I adored DH in the Pillow Book...he really felt a lot of emotions.

 

Me too! He is one of my favorite ML. FJ made his world interesting and unpredictable. It's rather charming how he keep chasing FJ, even though he had no idea why at the beginning. Poor FJ was just as confused by DH.

A lot of readers/watchers say FJ is so impulsive, but for DH's standard, he was just as guilty of lacking self control around FJ.

Yeah, XY was a tool to get what she wanted. When DH exchanged his room with XY, that was quite a clear message to everyone DH preferred FJ's company over JH.

That was 180 degree change. I disliked how JH suddenly realise she is in love with XY after ML died. 

JH's idea of love is distorted but she never liked XY that way. It didn't make sense how she changed her mind and decided  XY is the one for her.

I don't know if it's bad acting or it was meant to be acted that way, but all the times I've watched that (undeserved) antagonist's HEA, Ji Heng does not look or sound sincere with her declarations of love to Xiao Yan. Well, it's like she knew it would be far-fetched to still have someone pursue her after her disgraceful behaviour except him, so might as well settle with him else she'll have nobody with strength to back her.

 

Fortunately it wasn't like this in the 3L3W novels, because how sad would it have been for Xiao Yan.
