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


Recommended Posts

Finished episode 30. I’m like Feng Jiu, still holding a grudge at Dong Hua, so i can’t enjoy the DongFeng scenes as much as I would like to.

jiheng...how is showing up a junior going to impress Dong Hua? You say you are shamed by your past behavior. You seem as shameless as ever.

How come a Dong Hua did not know what Feng Jiu was up to if he sabotaged the tunnel?

and what was that leaf in hair scene about again? To prove that he was paying attention to her? Meh.

It's called vying for someone's attention, or passive aggressive rivalry. Not only in fairyland, but this happens a lot with us mortals. -_-

He already knew something was up when he saw FJ testing to enter the python ward at Ep29. I'd say that as he made a maze of the tunnel, he checked where it was supposed to lead.

That he's more than interested of her that he sees the minutest things at the briefest glances. It's meh for you now, but once you have a lover, you would want that lover to know how you generally look and to notice any changes. ^_^

 

 Given that men are notorious for the inability to see what is different at one go, DH had shown he knows very well how FJ normally looks to notice that there's a deviation of a tiny, dried tea leaf stuck to her hair.

Not sure if he doesn't know or suspect she wants the fruit though... 

In a way sabbotaging the tunnel brings to light what she's up to and he can draw her in; which he does later when he offers to train her.

That, and XY is part of the team which is a no go for DJ who wants her attention.

I aree! That's the impression I got from that scene. She also did not understand DJ's meaning when evaluating "her tea"  (can't blame her though, I didn't either :lol: ) which is why this scene was so very telling.

I simply can't blame or hold a grudge against DH for the misunderstandings that arised between them...

When it comes to love, a feeling unknown to him- beautifully shown when he questions it after JH's farther sacrificed himself for her-  he's a novice.

His personallity is simple, almost childlike and I think he doesn't do things "while knowing better." He employs tactics that have obviously worked for him in other situations... He's an ancient recluse captivated by a young girl who dares to challenge him and even threaten him :lol:. He's amused and teases her, not out of malice, but curiousity. And even though one of his shenanigans contributed to her ending up in FV, he's not entirely to blame imo. FJ did step out of the protective shield didn't she? I think he saw no harm bringing her as XY is no match for him.

Somewhere in the pages of this thread, somebody shared an IG or Twitter post about that first and second taste of tea. What he was saying to her which she wasn't quite grasping was very telling on how he regards her.

 

I think when DH was speaking about the first and second taste of tea, the tea he was talking about is FJ.

 

The first time he had those first glances of her (by the bridge, and the wedding ceremony she left), he did not see anything that makes her stand out. I would also agree - FJ was trying to confirm the gossip of Si Ming, then she sneaks out -  nothing to be impressed about. As tea, FJ at first sip was what you'll expect a tea would be.

 

But then, there's a jolly young lady joking with Si Ming at Jiuchongtian gate. She could fluster Si Ming. Then she mentions him with easy familiarity. Interesting indeed, and pretty sure DH was intrigued the way he stared at her as she sooooo formally denied that she knows him. That he zeroed in to her immediately at the wedding banquet when she entered carrying that plant pot...there's more to the second sip of the tea. 

 

We can all say that if every other sips are the encounters between DH and FJ at Jiuchongtian, that tea has a lot of flavour, colour, and aroma...He is addicted, hahahaha! Enough so that he will seek out that tea again at Fanyin Valley, for tasting more surprises!  :lol:

I remember that post about the tea! I was so thrilled because I had missed that at first! It's subtle... though DJ might think he's being obvious :lol:

 

 

He might be thinking that he's already obvious. But poor FJ, she didn't know it herself while except for Xiao Yan, and the self-denial of JH, everyone in Fanyin Valley from Fuzi to Jielu and Meng Shao knows

:hahah!:

One more thing, while Dong Hua was meditating, there was a glowing crystal stick near him. Was that Canghe sword? It looks thinner than I remembered.

 

It is the Cang'he, a celebrity on its own right. Shen Ye knew immediately, even if the poor thing is living in the dream.

 

The sword looks the same to me. Check the portion when JH was shown at the distance, where the shot is behind left side DH's back and Miao Luo is partially concealed (she's on his lap) as she chides him for having two other dates. The gleaming Cang'he sword is at the far right.

--  He means that at first glance she gave the impression of a bland cup of tea. But on the second sip (second glance, or after looking below the surface) she leaves a wonderful aftertaste (sweet and loving).  This was what he means in the Chinese language.

So basically he looked beyond the initial impression. He was frequently bumping into her. What impressed him the most was why she chose to save those people from the Chi Yan Beast.  That's what he sees below the surface. All this happening while the foster sister was totally ignored hahahaha.

The court musician too, kind of.

 

Eh, does foster sister even actually make tea for him. More like somebody else makes the tea that she serves. :lol:

Mmm..I Guess it accounts to what camera angle the sword was shot from.

Where’s Jiheng’s perfect tea is boring. Nothing special compared to other excellently brewed teas. Feng Jiu is a unique and new taste.

Now that winter is gone from Fanyin Valley, do you think people can say Aranya’s name now?

i admit I find the Junuo infuriating for trying to cover up the name. She’s not doing any justice to her sister whatsoever beyond punishing their mother.

Junou has been hostile with Aranya, perhaps even after her death she was for some time. Until she realized that it was the former king and queen who really messed them up children.

 

IMO, the taboo of Aranya being mentioned is like a reassurance to her subject that they have a queen who isn't afraid. Never mind that they're reminded of Aranya every single second as they see the winter wasteland.

 

Junou in the end redeemed herself. Her advises to Jielu had shown she has wizened up. A pity though that she didn't have scenes with FJ, just the two of them, after the dream broke.

I still feel like Junuo could have done something like visit Aranya’s site of death to lay flowers. But to just completely erase her sister from existence... she may have redeemed herself in general but not when it comes to her sister.

Qinghua and she were performing rites when Shen Ye took the 3 other seasons.

 

I'd imagine that the kingdom  was in turmoil for some time after getting plunged to endless winter,  the shaky hold of Junou to the throne, and Qinghua to contend with. 

 

The taboo is at best empty, but if it brought some sort of reassurance to the clan that there is a Queen who has firm resolve,  then I'd say it's worth it however petty it might seem. It's  quite Macchiavelian, but the end justifies the means since the Biyiniao folks were still thriving in cold winter. They were in fact able to live side by side with Shen Ye at the dream realm by the python  formation. 

 

Perhaps Junou does private memorials for Aranya. Just as she could depose Qinghua.

Finished episode 31. I must say I can enjoy the DongFeng scenes better now, especially Dong Hua’s jealousy. He so doesn’t like her neighbour or her nighttime gatherings.

jiheng should learn from Jielu.

XY is kind of awful for just dumping Dong Hua on Feng Jiu like that with no warning. And then trying to set them up when he knows how Dong Hua disappointed Feng Jiu... awful friend, especially for the sake of Jiheng...

i am not impressed with Dong Hua forcing Feng Jiu to serve him. Not at all.

He can basically  make anyone to serve him as their Emperor.

 

Besides, if he can make LS clean and maintain Cang'he sword, then he can also ask a princess to cook for him.

 

FJ has also given the leverage why she should serve since she admitted to him that she was with XY to steal the pimpon fruit. Would have embarrassed Qing Qiu if she was turned over to Junou, which he did not.

 

Besides...she is indebted yet again of him taking care of her while she's sick. She's so bad when she's sick. He should have asked JH to nurse her during her crying fit. LMAO!
