[Mainland Chinese Web Drama 2020] Three Lives Three Worlds The Pillow Book 三生三世枕上书


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

@jimmylyne I actually wrote a short story based on what you posted today. Remember how I said it would be a good story idea if Jiheng tried to talk to Feng Jiu when Dong Hua wasn’t around? I am going to post it tomorrow on Tumblr and paste the link here.

but before I do, do you have a Tumblr account so I can credit you for the inspiration?

Here’s an idea, i just watched a video about the TOP 5 hateful characters from 三生三世. Jiheng ranked 3. While discussing Jiheng in the video, there was the idea that Jiheng should marry the sky lord instead of Dong Hua. This way, there would still be peace between realms. And Xu Yang was kinda ambitious if he wanted to marry his Sister to the first ancient bachelor king who shows no interest in women.

Imagine attention-needy Jiheng as just another concubine in the sky lord’s harem? Besides, the dude admitted he is too old for this stuff. Sure Jiheng would be granted high rank as a concubine, but it Beats her having a happy ending as Xiao Yan’s queen of the demon realm :persevere:

After the shenanigans of Ji Heng, Xu Yang will not be able to marry her off to anyone but someone in the demon realm. Even with vast dowries or concessions to marry JH, no one would dare offend Dong Hua or the family of high gods of Qing Qiu. Xu Yang has no more leverage anyway because he got the Miaohua mirror (which he's unable to use, hahaha).

 

One more thing. Seeing that Xiao Yan is having a good relationship with the celestials and is close to Feng Jiu, Xu Yang won't marry Ji Heng off either to him. Xu Yang is wise enough to realise that he will not risk losing whatever cordial relationship there is of a demon lord with the gods. Thus, marriage between JH and XY is also off the tables.

 

The best Xu Yang can manage is another lord of the demon clan who might be willing to overlook JH's past for the sake of benefits, like Nie Chuyin, or someone from the same Red demon clan who would be at his beck and call.

I think FJ would be like Gugu or even more if it's DH and BGG, and others she love who might be harmed. Just look at how she took on Miao Luo even if she'll likely lose. She's very protective. She got fighting skills, and she'd kill as well, in mortal and Aranya's dream.

So very true..FJ is very protective and it's her nature always helping others like she did with Chiyan Beast incident.. and always ready to give an assist to the "helpless"DH and bravely fight with Miaoyi chasm.. Miaoluo.

 

FJ definitely will be as par as GuGu or maybe even better..with DH as her teacher. And the fact DH has personally teach her everything will be triggered of her accomplished or achievement in no time. As DH first student (most probably BGG will be the second student of DH) she will become a great one since DH will not have a mediocre student under his guidance. We had seen how strictly tough and metriculous DH was as a teacher. Even FJ learnt only in a brief time with DH in Fanyin Valley , the results was exceptionally well done..and the she managed to defeats all her competitors including MengShao (although he was distracted) and Xiao Yan..

 

Just imagine Dongfeng's family harmoniously teached each other in everything they've got.

 

DH teachs FJ and GG everything he knows about Magic, Swordfighting, Music, Gardening, Crafted, Medical and herbs Incenses , Fishing , Buddhist sutra's etc etc .

 

As for painting, GG can asked his grandfather Bai Yi, his technics or pointers since Bai Yi is the greatest painter in all Realms? 

(Hihi...I remember your last posts about it).

 

And FJ will teach both DH and GG about cooking , knitted or embroidery since she's excel in it.

:happy2:

 

BGG will always know if DH making fun or making a stupid jokes of his beloved Jiujiu . DH will have to secretly "negotiate" or asked GG to cooperate before DH manage pranks FJ in front of his beloved son .."Lie detector" Bai GunGun.

:wub:

True. FJ have strong protective instincts. So strong it often over rides her logic and self preservation instinct.

I wish FJ can be a bit like BQ ..cold hearted and respond in-kind to anyone who dare to bully her just like BQ did to Su Jin and Xuan Nu. The problems is JH has never met FJ other than that one time , it was when she was lying about DH and Saha Fruit.

 

I wish FJ also respond in-kind to Souying .FJ could learnt a trick/magic from DH how to remove Souying fairy essence and get another mythical creature to bully 'ordinary Souying' like he did to Baby Fox.

 

Since DH always by FJ side especially after Aranya Dream so JH didn't get a chance to tells FJ her another fabricated story , her delusional mind .

I should've felt uncomfortable with how super clingy and possessive DH is, but apparently l like/ loved it . DH is super clingy hopelessly romantic and he won't let go of FJ ..even as far as go to the pond to wash her face.

 

JH should meet "FJ The  Empress"  at least once to "bow and kneel down" to the DHDJ's empress as well as Qingqius Queen and JH also should seen BGG,  the fruit, the prove of Dongfeng's eternal true love.

 

FJ is innately kind and soft hearted. I don't think she can ever intentionally cause serious harm to another person for her own satisfaction or revenge. However FJ will attack to defend people she cares for. 

I admire FJ for having strong morals and stand by her values. 

 

DH may be possessive and clingy. But he does it just enough, to be cute and elicit the protective and care instinct. Also, DH may verbalize his displeasure but he does respect FJ's choices. 

I like how supportive DH are towards FJ's choices, even though he may be 100% onboard. Instead of ignoring or deny FJ's of her choices, he would often quietly support her in his own ways. 

 

Regarding JH. Haha I imagine she would just drown in her envy. Karma will get to her some how.

This will be their normal scenario, close knit and helping each other with what skills they can teach. Their being apart and wanting to make up with whatever time they've lost to be together will always be at the back of their minds...

For sure Bai Yi will also feature a lot in his grandson's life. He might even be like Bai Zhi, raise him like his father did to Feng Jiu.

 

The Bais are quite blessed. From their clan comes the most talented or breathtakingly gorgeous beings.

Hopefully father and son will become more than good in the kitchen, hahaha! DH is already skilled in stitching.

 

Pretty much a given that DH will be the prime example to BGG of a man who proudly does whichever household chores. :wub: Remember how DH dissed the others over that? Hahahaha!

 

You know who else is an expert in needleworks? Grandpa's nominal daughter and FJ's BFF. :)

DH and FJ are so well-matched. They're the power couple to watch for.

 

I love that he abides with that promise of her having the freedom in her choices and decisions. He's that confident of her goodness as a person.

She's very sensible, nor is she vengeful. Just never threaten who she loves. JF will never tolerate that. Neither should anyone try stealing or hide something/someone from her. She is very skilled in tracking and breaking in!

Love and agreed with everything you said about FJ .

:hypehype:

 

That's her nature . She's the one .The one for DHDJ. That's why amongst all beauties ...although DJ has had meet and seen in all his extraordinary long life.. and despite how young FJ is, she the one managed to catch DJ attention ( loved) at the first sight. 

 

I guoted DH's pov on FJ

 

Out of thousands of people in this whole world, she was the only suitable one for DHDJ..

 

Because he had good vision. Because his sight was keen, he was able to discover her.

 

_______________

JH? RME...Doesn't matter whether she believes or not .. someday karma will get her and bite her in the RickRoll'D.

 

"..there's actually no such thing as karma and reason, it's all luck and chance.” - JH ( PB2 page 13)

DH as Bais son in law and BGG as Bais grandson would be such a blessed for Qingqiu . An added to Bais clan also widely known with unparalleled beauty and as you said "most talented or breathtakingly gorgeous beings" . So very true..

I think he will say it with a double meaning. Kind of like what DH does sometimes.

I find this line interesting.

when Dong Hua was in Fanyin Valley, Jiheng was fine believing there was an existence of fate, believing they were destined to be together.

but the moment Dong Hua goes after Feng Jiu and kisses her forehead; it’s all there is no such thing as fate. It is all luck and chance. Meaning there is still a chance for Jiheng.

in short, she chooses whatever excuse she has for pursuing Dong Hua. She can say they are fated or Feng Jiu is not Dong Hua’s destined one.

girl; if you were destined, you would have already caught his interest. You have no more fate with Dong Hua than Zhihe does. And as for betting your luck on him, you are currently a disgraced princess living as a musician in an isolated valley after betting on love ...do you honestly want to bet on your luck?

Pretty sure he will use it against his parents’ questionable teaching methods. Like why can’t he sleep with Mother? Why can’t he have more cakes? I can already see GG retorting his father’s threat to send him to Kunlun.

I am amazed by JH's positive self talk. It is not an easy skill to develop!

For JH, whatever is convenient, so long that she appears to be the good one....well, basically she wants to best everyone, including DH.

 

Perhaps she's too hung up from being that rarely seen beauty from her realm, as she seems to rely much with her looks. Or connections.

 

She's that proverbial white lotus. Nice to look at, but rotten inside.

The Kunlun threat? BGG will take it on the chin. If and when he goes though, DH will miss him the most. :lol:

Yep, totally delusional, smh. 

 

Also, there is a section from a bit after this line that Hamster abridged rather heavily, if you could understand the drama in Mandarin, I'm pretty sure the lines were lifted directly from the text (don't take my word for it though, I didn't directly compare).

 

The lines there are as I've translated: “But since I like Dijun and have persisted in this love for more than 200 years, I just want to try again… I want to try this luck. Perhaps there will be a day when that luck will become mine. In the end, who Dijun will choose is still not definite.”

 

Note: the word used in bold is 机缘, which can also be used to mean an opportunity, but the meaning of the word depends a bit on context, so make of that what you will. 

 

Here's what Hamster had: “Since I like Dijun and have persisted for more than 200 years, I still want to have a try at this love. Who Dijun chooses is still not definite.”

 

So, very much all about luck. -eyeroll-

She was so ridiculous in that scene wherein she was crying in front of the mirror. IIRC this scene isn't in the book, and it's just so damn irritating to have a Su Jin flashback.

Indeed they are, including Zhi He who's changing hairpins because DH's about to arrive. As if that will make a difference with him.

 

LMAO, yet he noticed and picked up that small, very simple hairpin of FJ, and even asked her about the design and from where is it.

ELOD is ranked at 6th out of 10 for 2020 costume drama(6:44),  how did this happen?

 

Unfortunately I can totally see why. :/

 

:crybaby:

 

I'm not usually particularly discerning about the quality of production and I certainly don't usually notice any directorial flaws, but there were some things in this drama that just screamed 'low budget' and 'poor production quality' for me. For example, I noticed that a lot of the lighting was really poorly done, like one image would be super bright, and then they'd change to focus on another person, and the lighting for that person would be super dark... for me it was just really really jarring and it took me a long time to get over how awful it was. 

 

Aesthetically, while I did like the pastels more, I think a lot of people are comparing it to TMoPB because they were marketing it as a "sequel," and it honestly doesn't quite live up. Imo, it just looks... cheaper. I'm not sure if it's because they were using lighter fabrics while TMoPB's looked, I don't know, "heavier" maybe? but a lot of the costumes did look a little cheap to me. 

 

And apparently ELoD's budget was lower, so that just ruined it. But I did feel like the CGI was mostly really nice, maybe that's where their budget went. :/

 

The guy in the video did mention though that it had the most ratings out of all of the dramas, so that's a plus, and weren't there supposedly a lot of haters purposely dragging down the rating? That could be why it's rated so low.
