food for thought: for someone who likes Xize, Changdi sure seems keen for him to treat her big sister. I mean sure it means she gets to see him more, but his attention will be focused on Junuo, not her.

and she is very bold, actually daring to badmouth his own wife to his face.

Or she is really stupid!

Hmm,  just a passing thought. :lol: Was it mere pettiness to Aranya during the time of real Xi Ze when Changdi was expressing her interest? I think real Xi Ze is also quite attractive his own right. Did it become a big crush when DH was Xi Ze? :D

@SilverDawn @Megan

I vote for pettiness and wanting the prestige of being Xi Ze's wife.

I have one for you :D 

 

If you were an immortal child, who would you rather belong too and why?

 

Dong Hua/Feng Jiu

Ye Hua/Bai Qian

Mo Yuan/Shao Wan

Lian Song/Cheng Yu

 

I think no matter which couple you choose, your bound to be counting stars a lot of nights...

DH and FJ. They have great values and have a open mind.

Also, as their child, even if i get in trouble, I know I have strong backings with DH as my father :joy:

Plus Changdi had never seen the recluse Xize before. This could be her first time seeing him.

i can’t decide. But I think with how Cheng Yu keeps calling Lian Song rascal...I think she is the mother most likely to sleep beside her children than her husband, who will be kicked out to count stars.

honestly, I can’t see Feng Jiu ever successfully kicking Dong Hua out of her room.

The main point is, FJ probably never want to kick DH out of her room.

While I rank Xuan Nu, Su Jin, and Jiheng as the main love rivals and villains, there are still the minors to consider. In that case who is worse: Changdi vs Zhihe.

both spoiled princesses are big bullies with crushes on Dong Hua. But who is worse?
honestly, if all of Dong Hua’s admirers are crazy enough to cross over the lines and invade his privacy/kill someone/do something mean, it’s no wonder he chooses Feng Jiu. At least Ye Hua had somewhat decent admirers: Green Sleeves and that female nun.

Hmm good point. Why does DH attract all the crazies.

Zhi He, coz she doesn't think at all, she'll just do it. Changdi at least plans, so she either goes ahead or not.

Chacha was his biggest and nicest fan, albeit as Xi Ze, and Muyun in mortal realm. Let's not forget Jielu, she was very sensible and remained friendly with FJ. :)

I think he attracts the good and the bad. Or the attraction to him makes them turn bad. :lol: There must be more of that pretty lad that he could run him off. What if that pretty lad was one of those thugs that previously DH's beaten up due to harassing him at Bihai Cangling? Nyahahaha!

Oh yeah. I totally prefer her with XY though, lifespan differences aside.

Currently watching episode 38. Like hell Dong Hua would let Moye go on a romantic flower date with Feng Jiu. Ok, it’s not technically a date but it’s still romantic. So yeah, he’s not gonna let that happen.

@Megan @SilverDawn 

With women like Changdi and what they are capable of doing, even DH who's good in fighting and very shameless will choose to become a recluse. :lol:

LOL so true... He attracts weirdos for sure...

He's almost 100% sure that's FJ in Aranya's body after what he heard of her plans...FJ's signature fall in the hole traps. :lol: Besides, he's involved to it too, when FJ told SMY to masquerade as Xi Ze. Might as well be there himself. Hahaha!

BGG and other sons will not find it so hard. But the girls...The future daughters will have lots of admirers but very few will be brave enough to meet DH...and the infamous Canghe sword. :D

I admit the romantic setting for episode 38 was beautiful and I liked the song.

junuo asking Xize to check on his wife shows that there is some kernel of goodness in her.

you know, for a guy who likes Changdi because Qinghua hates him less once she was born, the emperor totally ignores his wife in the fire.

i am so angry at Dong Hua, Shen Ye and Moye. Seriously....after losing their beloved once, are they honestly not going to check in on Feng Jiu??? Shen Ye, you know the royal family is despicable and this is your own world, couldn’t you have done something?!!! There isn’t even a strict script to follow.

Dong Hua, you already admitted you didn’t give Feng Jiu’s safety enough consideration when your protection cage failed to protect her from pythons. Are you still being careless in securing her safety? Moye; you didn’t even search the dungeons.... some help you are.

and i admit; I find Cha Cha annoying. I miss Mu Yun.

Also Changdi is a lot like her father. Willing to steal her sibling’s spouse, willing to harm said sibling.

Also, while the Dream Junuo was represented as crueler than her real counterpart, do you think the Dream Changdi was also the same? Could the real Changdi have been not as bad?

Junuo outside the dream has matured and has seen the error of her ways when young.

 

Aranya's dream spans Aranya's life, so most of what happened, happened. Even though after FJ's arrival some things changed a bit. Overall "the play out" of the dream was still her life. So, I'd say the sisters were portrayed the way they were.

That's one instant that she's doing the right thing. DH Xi Ze was not at all informed FJ Aranya was being tried by Xiangli Que for her mischief. Which is very telling, since Xi Ze, the husband, is there but they didn't want him to know what's being done with his wife.

Xiangli Que murdered his brother to get the throne and sister-in-law Qinghua. But I think he only really genuinely liked Changdi. Changdi is also so much like him having fatricidal tendencies.

Shen Ye and Su Moye were following how it happened the first time. Though since it's now FJ there, there are changes like the punishments meted to her.

 

Su Moye was also attempting to run his own agenda. Not thinking properly of what will happen to him if FJ was harmed because he didn't want FJ and DH to meet yet (previously), or not take care of her as she masquerades as Aranya.

 

Shen Ye was still holding back even if he noticed how Aranya is now being defended by Xi Ze and Su Moye, and she wasn't aware of him anymore.

 

********

 

The Tiancang cage of DH does not follow or match FJ's movements as fast as she makes them. That's mentioned in the book, and depicted correctly in the drama. 

 

In the dream arc he did try to plead for Aranya as well to Xiangli Que, but the king and and the Queen were adamant to punish Aranya. Xi Ze, Xiangli He, Su Moye asked clemency but were refused. If an archmage  husband, crown prince brother, prince/master couldn't sway him? He really meant it for Changdi's revenge.

 

The King assured SMY and DH she's just in a stone cage to reflect on her mistakes. In that case, they can't undermine the authority of the monarch by insisting to check Aranya.

 

The fire was a blessing in disguise in more ways than one. Otherwise, FJ could have still been in the serpentine cage for more days.

Junou changed her ways after the death of Aranya. She had seen the madness brought on by Qinghua's hatred and the seeds of destruction sown by Xiangli Que.

 

Like what Su Moye said in Ep38, the hearts of Aranya's siblings and parents are the constant in the dream arc. So real Changdi is mean in the dream arc because she really was. Junou was also resentful, but later on matured and became wiser.

Since when does Dong Hua care for authority? They should have still visited her.

He was not Dong Hua Di Jun in the dream arc, he is Xi Ze Tara. He and SMY can not give out the game too early that they are not who they are.

 

Aranya FJ is not in a very good position even if she was the wife of Xi Ze. She was not even safe with Shen Ye.

 

This is implied, but when Xiangli Que said that she's reflecting on what she did wrong, he also meant that Su Moye and Xi Ze should let her be as she pays her penance.  He also said that is the rule. So it's more or less, "enough, don't discuss it anymore". A visit is out of question unless he actually says they can.

 

That doesn't apply to the favourite daughter Changdi who can come and go the dungeons.

Currently watching episode 38....Dong Hua doesn’t look happy that Moye insists on accompanying Feng Jiu.

me thinks he wanted to visit Feng Jiu while she was alone then.

but what was with the branch snapping thing? The petals I get. But not the branch.

Oh, Su Moye you are in trouble! You actually dared not to help the first emperor by telling him about Feng Jiu....pretty gutsy. Foolish and suicidal, but gutsy.

and Dong Hua is smiling at him...what bad luck will Moye face?

when Shen Ye suggests hosting a meteor party, im surprised he can behave so cordially and even smile at the cruel emperor. I can’t even tell whether he is acting or not...

That's ep39 when DH snapped the branch after listening to FJ's sentiments and views where he's concerned. 

 

Snapping the branch meant he can not remain stoic nor indifferent anymore when it comes to FJ. By this time he already feels.

 

What she and SMY were saying were raw and honest. And perhaps DH feels guilty too that instead of being more caring, he did not think much of her safety and well-being. FJ was in Fanyin Valley in the first place because he brought her with him to Mt Fuyu for his duel with XY.

 

At least it wasn't SMY's neck he's breaking like a pencil! :lol: Next episodes will be very interesting for SMY. All smiles of DH when he came to his room and when he left are not reassuring. :D

The dream has been repeated several times for three hundred years as he collects the primordial spirit of Aranya. 

 

Shen Ye had lots of practice.  And it's still a reality even now that you have to put a neutral or cordial demeanor when you are in public while interacting with someone, specially when they outrank you. No matter what you actually feel.

Finished episode 39

”I will roast fish!” Moye’s déclaration made me laugh.

i was looking forward to what Dong Hua’s smile might mean for Moye...until I learned that he was just in charge of Feng Jiu. Kind of disappointed. What happened to bad things happening when Dijun smiles?

i totally relished how Dong Hua hears Feng Jiu admits what a disappointment he is. About time he realizes he messed up.

i enjoyed the Xiao Yan and Jielu interaction, until he left her limping to go look for Jiheng. :(

Patience. The "bad luck" doesn't have to happen right then right now. That is not the worst SMY has done...yet. -_-

It implies even though DH may look calm on the surface, but he was greatly impacted hearing FJ disclosure and he lost some self control.

DH is a strategic person. He will patiently lay out the trap and wait for the target to fall. So SMY's suffering is coming.

Regarding the fish. I think to some extent it can be seen as degrading. SMY is a prince and also Aranya's teacher. From that perspective he shouldn't be serving her. Realistically, DH could have instructed Chacha to cook and SMY add the blood to the food.

In the middle of the episode, Moye passes a letter to the emperor written to Moye by Changdi. What was written in the letter if not the forged one?

I can hardly tell Dong Hua looks angry by the sisters’ trickery. And what does he mean by acting perfect?
