Fresh out of the oven! ELOD translation team presents author Tang Qi's 7th epilogue for The Pillow Book. We hope you get the joke because it is hilariously funny to the bones!!!    Source : @

The ELOD translation team have finally completed the English translation of Tang Qi's latest Pillow Book Epilogue. We hope you will enjoy the read! Shameless DH in action yet again!   S

Ok - for those wondering what Vengo said during his interview (I only translated up to this point. The rest was his message for his love rivals, which I won't go into, his appreciation to viewers for

And why is he so anxious about the sword blueprints when Chu Wan brings him soup?

It’s official. Jiheng is vain. We’ve seen her crying in front of a mirror, grooming her amnesiac self under Lord Nie’s care, and then musing over Xuanren’s nightmare of Xiao Jiu dying in front of a mirror. Has this girl never seen a window? Or paintings? Can’t she sit in front of something else for a change?

By the way, what exactly is Xuanren doing with those wooden tablets? Writing memorials?

 

Yes.

I'd say it's trust issues. Chu Wan was suddenly presented to him as a bride when they were victorious in their last war over the other state. That's why he then told his eunuch that concubines do not have to go in his study.

Finished episode 15. Didn’t enjoy it as much as i expected.

jiheng proves to be more dislikable with her vanity and petty sulking that Xuanren obviously cares more for Xiao Jiu. Sheesh. You don’t even like him that way. Why do you have to be the favorite? 
i admit Xuanren’s actions disappointed me. He could have tried solving the case too, in secret, instead of letting Qingti solve it alone. And for crying out loud, why are you getting distracted when the love of your life is in a freakin cell?!! Who listens to music by the lake, when someone you love is imprisoned and about to be executed?

SMY explained it best in Aranya's dream: time and seasons would change, but the heart rarely changes. JH may be Chu Wan now and without memories of being demon realm's princess and their rare beauty, but she still likes being praised, ergo, center of attention.

It's often a dilemma of the people at the top. SXR has to be the emperor first and foremost for everyone, and thus must be neutral. It won't do good for FJ if he also investigated. She will not be truly exonerated if SXR's own findings doesn't find her guilty. It's better that another person did independently.

 

Neither can SXR let his personal feelings and problems hinder his duties - that includes paying attention to his harem.

His actions are perfectly understandable for an Emperor, even one deeply in love. I don't think he could do more to be honest, not even in "secret." He did what he could and was hurting because he couldn't do more; as Emperor he has to remain neutral even if it's only from the outset.

XJ/FJ wasn't "helping" her case much either; she couldn't tell them her hometown (where she said the flower she used grows), so she remained silent. 

 

It's not like he attended a celebration- rather he was drawn in by JH's "sheme," playing the Qin for her deceased mother on her memorial day. He too lost his mother the day he was born, and JH used it to draw him in, receive his compassion. He made a promise to spend this day with her (her birthday), so I think in part it was due to obligation and perhaps a few minutes of respite for his heavy heart? Then again there hasn't been a moment when he has stopped worrying about Xiao Jiu...

Not like he paid them much attention before. According to his brother, the emperor actually stayed away from women.

this just reminds me of how Dong Hua and Jiheng were painting while Feng Jiu the fox curled up in the doorway.

He may stay away as much as he can, but he is still bound by duty to pay some attention to them, even if it's very little. Also, he had made a promise, to spend time with her on her birthday... Remember, JH also staged it quite well. I don't see how he could ignore her completely at a time like that?

Concubines were often from influential families or are royalties themselves. The Dowager Empress will in a later episode say that when SXR chooses his empress, one criteria is that she's of good lineage.

 

The members of his harem may not be his personal choices, but as Emperor he welcomes them and can not really ignore them. FJ herself after becoming one doesn't object to him visiting the others, as that is expected of him.

 

There are a lot of parallels in ELOD. :)

This reminds me. If Chu Wan wasn’t exposed as a spy, would she have become the primary candidate of being empress? Since she is a princess and all?

Technically she is, as she's presented as a princess from the other kingdom. She can actually pull it off if they wanted a presentable in etiquettes, well-groomed empress. 

 

On the other hand, they might prefer someone from the same kingdom as they are, not from the other kingdom they were warring with.

I finished episode 16! This is much better. But I’m confused about how Xuanren got drunk. Feng Jiu couldn’t use magic. So how did he get drunk?

and it’s annoying that the ending song soundtrack fades out! It’s a good thing the first 3 CDs work fine. I’m not gonna trade in for a new one because then i would probably have to rewatch 13-16 again to make sure they are fine.

Make a lot of toasts and fill the glass frequently. You'll get somebody drunk in no time! :lol:

They must have skipped that. Because they barely touched their cups in that scene.

maybe this is why Dong Hua drinks tea instead of wine

A seasoned warrior would always take care of what's in his cup. ^_^ Not that SXR isn't, but he was in a jolly mood and he was with FJ. FJ is also a seasoned drinker. Though not as good as auntie, pretty sure she can outdrink SXR.

In the restaurant scene, Jiheng was rude. We all agree. But why did she choose such a time and place? If she wanted to rub her cooking skills in, why not send Dong Hua food beforehand. Why give it to him when he is at a restaurant eating different food, when her excuse is that Jiuge’s cooking may not be suitable? Why make him eat it there and then instead of taking it back to his palace.

Coz she's that desperate with her illusions in staking her "claim" to everyone? Even if there's nothing to hold on to. DH doesn't live in the same courtyard as hers anymore, so sending him food is awkward. Her chance to pretend and grasp straws are at the banquet, nevermind if she's rude and pushy.

She wanted to demonstrate to everyone that she knows DH intimately, because she knows his taste and is willing to 'sacrifice' her health for him.

 

FJ is amazing. She may be impulsive at times, but she had the patience of a saint in that scene.

But why make him eat the soup right there and then? She could just say, teacher I made this soup for you to drink at your residence.
