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

Recommended Posts

Here is a reply from Tang Qi to a book fan who asked her why she ended The Pillow Book with the inhumane  “Gun Gun, I am your Father Lord.”

 

Author
呃,我原来这么坏的吗?可你不觉得那才是最真实最合适的结局吗?滚滚我是你父君,好像确实不太人道,但是当时主要考虑菩提劫里会继续,毕竟被昆仑虚封印的三毒浊息还得靠帝君老人家恢复之后在菩提劫里继续。就是没料到菩提劫到现在还没来得及写ᶘ ͡°ᴥ͡°ᶅ

 

Oh, was I such a bad person? But don’t you feel that the ending is a suitably realistic one? Although “Gun Gun , I am your Father Lord” appears to be very inhumane, but at the point of writing, I considered that Bodhi Fate will be continuing the saga, after all the Three Poison Miasma sealed by Kun Lun will still rely on Di Jun, the old man, after he fully recovers to continue dealing with it in Bodhi Fate. But I did not expect Bodhi Fate to still be unwritten till now.

 

———

 

So basically, this means we will see all the immortals including those who recently awakened (hint: Zu Ti, Shao Wan, Xie Ming) dealing with it together with Dong Hua. Ultimately Bodhi Fate should be the book that tie up all the loose ends from the first three books. 
 

And Tang Qi said she will never kill off Di Jun in her lifetime so we can rest assured we will get a HEA for every couple that were written about in the 3L3W universe. Now that makes me even more excited about all the upcoming novels.
 

She has also confirmed several times that she will be writing 2 more single volume books after Bodhi Fate in this universe. Those books will be Xie Gu Chou and Xiang Yun’s story and Xie Hua Lou and Yan Chi Wu’s story.

And by this, I am guessing that the Bodhi Fate timeline is around a thousand years after DH and FJ reconciled. :) 

 

I am basing that from what I remember on DH's fully recovering his cultivation, which will be 500 years of continuous seclusion/deep sleep, or 1000 years if he secludes a few months every year. 

 

DH chose the longer route because he doesn't want to miss any more of the childhood years of BGG.:heart:

I hope the book comes out soon so when they adopt it into a drama Vengo and Reba can re take their roles to continue it! Can't wait

Maybe more than 1,000 years after as Bodhi Fate starts when Shao Wan awakens.

 

There is a hint in the last one shot she wrote for Pillow Book. That one shot starts with A Long Long time after, Shao Wan awakens.

 

Though by that time Shao Wan and Zu Ti will be around and maybe Xie Ming. More than one ancient god to share ideas with. SW and ZT are besties, and SW and DH are also besties.

 

There must be a reason why TQ dwelt into the past in the book as Shao Wan recalls her memories. Don’t forget certain people are in them.

 

My guess is Bodhi Fate might be switched to third person pov instead of first person as both The Pillow Book and Lotus Step are both written in third.

@Ninky How are you doing?

 

I'm quite sure SW will also be besties with FJ. I mean, with who FJ is bosom buddies with. :) And pretty sure SW knows bestie DH so well that he'll only choose a wife who matches his personality, someone he can be partners with in trolling. Someone SW will also be happy to spend time with as well. ^_^ 

 

Uhm, SW might turn out to be another "love rival" for DH, aside from BGG and Ali. :lol:

 

I'm assuming that YH and BQ might not have much presence either in the immortal arc of Lotus Steps, but they will be in Bodhi Steps as MY is his brother and her former master.

 

I'm speculating too that there's the possibility that Xie Ming and SW will be awakened or roused in the last chapters or epilogue of Lotus Steps. Though it isn't Zu Ti or Xie Ming in mortal arc, its very interesting that the immortal the Water God woke up is his

Spoiler

Love rival. :P

I mean you can guess the trajectory of the story. Tang Qi had already mentioned that Lian Song will have many love rivals and not necessarily the opposite gender either. 
 

Lian Song will regret his decisions, I can tell ya.

Lian Song, from mortal realm to immortal realm and even Netherworld, collected all kinds of enemies. :phew:

 

One barbecued dragon water god about to be served, thy name is Lian Song.

The later chapters of the mortal arc is one adventure after another. And the unfolding story between a goddess, her friend (eh, but he's more like a colleague), then the fated one for the goddess - ohhh lala indeed.

The other tracks could be the following:

 

1. Fox Blinks version 1

2. Fox Blinks version 2

3. Fox Blinks instrumental

4. Heart Desire at Peace instrumental

5. Book of Fate instrumental

6. The Pillow Book

7. The Pillow Book instrumental

 

There should be total 35 of OST and BGM, although note that Fox Blinks were for promotion and The Pillow Book was for the radio play of the novel.

 

Note also that the opening and closing OST have instrumental versions played a few times in the drama, but not officially released.

It wasn't, as far as I know. Nonetheless, thanks so much for the links for the instrumental versions of the opening and closing OST.

The 7 you mentioned were released later as a second batch. Sadly, there are at least 5 BGM that aren't officially released yet...and at least three were used a lot of times in the drama.

Uhm, the first few minutes of Ep38 has unreleased BGMs... :lol: Joking aside, two or three as I remember from this episode itself. 

 

Then there are variants of official BGMs that aren't released like that of Snow Pile Practice, or the DH FJ Sword Dance.

Question: when Dong Hua agreed to Zhihe’s exile, do you think he did it more for her education and discipline, or because he disliked having to take care of women who fancy him?

Discipline for a blatant lawbreaker. The other one is what he dished to JH in later episodes, also in the book. :lol:

 

DH mentioned it himself in the wedding fiasco at EP7 - Zhi He is guilty of deceiving His Majesty. That's also why Si Ming asked ZL to call Tianjun, to which the heavenly lord also said he will give a proper response of what happened to Di Jun. ZH did a serious crime according to their laws.

Question: and I hope this doesn’t come across as racist or whatnot, but I’m confused about Diliraba being both Uyghur and Chinese. Like does it mean her ancestors were originally Turkish but then immigrated to China? Is Diliraba Chinese based on nationality only? :huh:

Historically, there would always be migrations among groups of people. In ancient times, borders did not also really exist. Migrations are usually of circumstances - trading, better place to live as per season which some nomads or stateless people still do, displacement due to wars and famine, or being vassals and subjects who settled somewhere else as per needs and requirements in the name of their government.

 

You can check how Uighurs who were originally Turkish came to settle in China. Hint: read up on the world's greatest empires.

 

Understand though that they're not any less Chinese than other ethnicities of Chinese as they settled there in the mainland for many centuries. By this point too, there would have been already intermarriages to other tribes as well. Just as, for example, in your country of domicile Singapore. There are ethnic Malays, Indians, or Chinese Singaporean.

 

Reba being an Uighur Chinese should not be taken up against her - no one can control the circumstances of their own birth, race/ethnicity, or parental lineage.
