Me too! But I think it reinforce how DH does not care what other people think. His actions were a means to an end. 

If it was another male, he would most likely be upset, thinking how others would gossip and say he was left at the alter by the bride.

If DH wasn't around, Cang Yi may have been a charming male lead! He did seem to get FJ's free spirit and forgiving to her aggressive way of trying to solve the problem.

For the first part; I was talking about Xiao Yan, not Dong Hua. I think you misunderstood that passage.

for the second part, I admit I was touched that Cang Yi actually collected novelties for Feng Jiu to enjoy once they were wed, but I also felt frustrated by him. She doesn’t want to marry you. Just cancel the marriage and court her then! It felt like he was a chain attached to her leg. Decorated with flowers but unwanted.

Skimming some passages. Part of me imagined a scenario when Dong Hua agrees to hire Jiheng as a maid, but to her dismay, she is to be Zhihe’s maid, while Dong Hua decides to move to the exclusive Blue Sea.

I can understand your frustration. Somehow I thought Cang Yi may not have known how FJ was against the marriage, given that she signed off the agreement. 

Overall, I think Cang Yi came off as a decent person. He asked for FJ's hand in marriage and let her go when she refused. This is based on the drama version. I forgotten how he was in the novel.

Weakened state, betrayed by his own brother, his general dead, and immediately after, his beloved left. SXR went through a lot of heartaches in succession within a short time, rendering him unfit to rule. He was at least still responsible enough to acknowledge that he can't lead anymore.

 

Chengyu collapsed after 10 years when Nie Chuyin succeeded to take the Lingbi stone.

 

Dong Hua may stop if FJ actually asks him to and if she meant it. She never would say that though, and they've always felt the same way to each other. For DH, he'll always remember or care for her whoever she is, in whichever life, just that they should at least meet once.

 

Like SXR, DH will never give her up without a fight.

Poor SXR. Not surprised how he got depressed and gave up on life. He seemed like a decent King before things went down hill with Xiao Jiu. Thinking back, SXR didn't ask for much and he had so much to give.

 

Agree with you regarding SXR and DH not giving up without a fight. They go out of their way to ensure Xiao Jiu/FJ are with them.

Cang Yi also asked Bai Yi to show leniency on Feng Jiu despite destroying his palace in the novel.

what did you expect Bai Yi? You tied her up and send her off. Did you honestly think she would resign herself to that fate?

as for Xuanren; he fought for Xiao Jiu and chose her to be his empress, but that scene when he made the announcement? It’s like he was daring  Qingti protest. The very least Qingti could have said was “Xiao Jiu préférs the countryside. Did your majesty ask her opinion on this?”

@Bai Gun Gun

----+++++----

Dong Hua on the other hand, is unhampered by any rules on whoever he would choose for his wife, and nothing to restrain him too in his shamelessness, like make up stories being poisoned by the water serpent and its effect to him. LOL. What a change for the icy face, recluse deity revered for his zen.

 

There's no doubt on his commitment to FJ though. He can follow her everywhere wherever it would lead, and he desires to take her wherever he goes. Whether in life or death. His love lets her be free on whatever she wants to do and grow as she wishes. His love for her too is all consuming, he will never be able to fully accept it that FJ will love another man. 

 

I don't mean that in a bad way, but that DH is that sort who will exhaust all means, fix what can be fixed, win her back however way it's possible. And if nothing anymore works, he would not stop FJ filing for divorce if it comes to that. He will let her divorce him, but for DH until his death, he remains faithful to her, only FJ owns his heart, and she is the only wife for him.

----+++++----

that is beautifully written!

The best thing about their relationship is that it feels equal and so compatible.

DH wants to take FJ everywhere with him, FJ will accept nothing less. 

 

@Bai Gun Gun I felt the same way as you do while watching TMOPB. YH had many expectations and responsibilities to juggle, but I couldn't accept the way he "protected" BQ. I know it was not YH's intention, but due to his actions, BQ suffered psychological and physical trauma. It's no wonder she needed to forget their relationship.

Bai Yi loves FJ dearly, but he have questionable parenting skills. He definitely over-reacted.

 

SXR was impressive, he fought for Xiao Jiu from the beginning to the end. He truly followed his heart.

It was sad to see SXR and Qingti's rapport fell apart.  They were a good team. Qingti and SXR are quite similar, they were both willing to do whatever to keep Xiao Jiu happy.

Her possessiveness and sense of "ownership" is out of whack. <_< Her treatment of Xiao Jiu when she was a maid at Tai Chen was very bad...she even killed the Mufeng butterfly because it became friends with FJ. :(

 

For both the book and drama, Zhi He didn't learn from DH. He did try training/teaching her, but she apparently doesn't want to learn anything because DH is there. :phew:

and @SilverDawn I find Zhi He's character most disturbing. She scares me because of the lack of remorse and violent tendency. 

How scary is that, she even tried to stab FJ and only stopped because she was caught. 

JH may be self centred and obsessive, but she never tried to physically harm anyone.

Watched episode 22. I liked it, Feng Jiu’s sadness notwithstanding.

Cheng Yu makes me laugh at how she rejects Lian Song. And she is such a good friend to Feng Jiu!

im glad Xuanren’s love was strong enough to still affect Dong Hua.

this is my favorite Ali out of all media versions. Somehow I think Yang Mi looks prettier here than in Eternal Love.

does anyone think Jiheng’s goodbye letter was cold hearted?

Ali is super cute in ELOD. So is BGG. Where do they find these adorable kids?

I agree. Yang Mi look prettier in ELOD. Although I liked FJ's hairstyle in TMOPB, I felt FJ looked prettier in ELOD.

SAME!

 

im bored right now and hence I came up with this idea. What if Xiao Jiu fell sick in the mortal realm? I don’t know, Cos of Rain? Flu season?

of course the emperor comes to visit her, but how will he react to seeing his favoured concubine acting so childishly, and physically? He will definitsly know that Xiao Jiu is a mummy’s girl.

There'll be a search party sent for Xiao Jiu's mummy. Hahaha! Well, all the physicians would be called for sure. Lucky for SXR and Muyun that FJ doesn't normally get sick, hahaha!

 

On the other hand, she is overwhelmed by pain or faints from backfires that she couldn't be coquettish from sheer lack of strength, I guess. Otherwise, usual illness would be same display as in Fanyin Valley.

Watched episode 24. If Dong Hua can’t be haunted by Xiao Jiu, then he shall be haunted by his pet. Cheng Yu...you got tricked. You only promised to help check the list, not the whole party!

seeing Dong Hua prank Feng Jiu...it does seem kind of mean, especially when she isn’t so quick to accuse Migu (like in the novel) but this is a weirdo who poisons his friends.

More suspicions and dislike will be heaped on to Xiao Jiu if Qingti said something...she's been very favoured despite her unclear background. SXR's advisers were accepting of her as a hero and saviour to their Emperor, but as an Empress they want one with lineage and reputation they can track and confirm.

Anyone suspicious that the gossips of DH being bloodthirsty is actually that of ZH? DH just let himself get the bad reputation instead of the foster sister, as one way of repaying her parents giving him shelter.

 

He is a warrior and can willingly take the whole clan's heads if he needs to, as he told XY before duelling for the Soul Locking jade. The keyword there though is that there is a justifiable enough reason why he would. Unlike ZH who would kill/hurt anyone out of meanness and being petty.

LS tricking CY is an attempt to chase after her...probably hoping of the return of how CY was with him in the past. <_< Too bad for LS, CY learned the lessons too well.

 

DH's first prank of FJ is likely "test or payback" on what he overheard at the gate. She tells SM she won't be able to take revenge on DH's tricks. Actually, it felt to me that he was daring her to do or say something when FJ became the sudden focus of everybody's attention. :lol:

I think so too... DH wants to play :phew: 

 

He already somewhat knows what she can be like when she's not wearing her "Queenie mask" He's curious what she would do and was tickled when she blamed Migu ( n the novel) without so much as a blink.

 

The amused look he gives her in FY valley after she "graciously" returned the handkerchief is priceless! And he admitted it himself later on how he likes the real FJ more then the restrained one :)

Does anyone get the impression that Dong Hua is a man of few words, judging by how he addresses his intention to wed Xiao Bai to her family, and they are stunned by the mere speech length?

Well, Bai Yi knew him in the army. Zhe Yan also said so that all he said in the dinner were more words than what he ever uttered for years. 

 

Ep26, DH says he's succinct.

I love that scene! I wonder though how it would be if as in the book, FJ transformed into her full fox form. Then she confronts DJ, blows on the hanky then flings it on the ground, as she sashays to leave with her nine tails in full show. :lol:

 

The image of a small fox shaking her paw to someone with DH's height....

Currently watching episode 25. The sky lord sounds like Zhi He, asking why isn’t Dong Hua there to watch flowers with him.

 

DH's presence = more prestige 

 

That's how rarely he is seen other than the times he attends courts.

More than halfway through the episode. I just thought of a scenario.

Ali comes to Bai Qian asking her to teach him to be shameless.

BQ: Don’t ask for such a lesson. It isn’t becoming. I’m sure Feng Jiu is aware of this by now.

Ali: but Feng Jiu is encouraging Gun Gun to be shameless. She says if he can outshame his father, Gun Gun can sleep with her instead while Dong Hua will sleep by himself.

Bai Qian: how did Dong Hua respond to this?

Ali: Brother Dong Hua did not look worried. He says he looks forward to seeing what Gun Gun has inherited from him, but it is unlikely that the son can beat the father.

BQ: ....

Finished the episode. At last DongFeng meet. Wish it could have been more romantic but that’s impossible. 
For someone who likes peace and quiet, Dong Hua sure can be dramatic when he saves Feng Jiu.

Why do you think Dong Hua agreed to let Zhihe come back? Do you think he really believes she wants to continue cultivation after she kept relying on him? He doesn’t hold affection for her family and honestly it just makes practical sense to keep her away from him, and learn to improve her personality? What happen to not spoiling her?

also, which idea is more shocking? Dong Hua kneeling and begging for forgiveness, or Dong Hua giving Feng Jiu a foot massage?

For the flower festival only that ZH was summoned in Jiuchongtian, and not by DH per se. If you meant her staying in Tai Chen again, it's because the organizers requested if he can spare ZH a room.

 

Since ZH didn't get pardon she's still exiled from Jiuchongtian. DH also told her that when the banquet was over, to return to the West Deserts.

 

I honestly can't see DH kneeling and begging for forgiveness, but he can bow to requests for some things.  He asks what he can do to prove himself though, so he will kneel if that's the condition.

 

When he can open his chest and carve out half his heart, or absorb Qiushui poison to absolutely cut relations, would other things still be difficult for him to do? ;)

 

No surprise of the foot massage, as he was offering FJ to apply cotton rose ointment too before when she was training. ^_^

Currently watching episode 26, forget Dong Hua being jealous of his own son. Ali doesn’t just cling to his mom, he clings to his cousin.

 

That's why he tells Ali he'll send him to Kunlun if he was Ye Hua. ***Evil laugh***
