Hello @Lazuria, welcome to the thread! :heart: Hope you had a good time reading through the pages. 

 

Bai Feng Jiu was known in the realms as the only red nine-tailed fox, the sole granddaughter of Bai Zhi Dijun, and second most beautiful woman after Bai Qian. She is also known for her naughtiness and mischief, even Si Ming the bagua was one of her victims.

 

The little fox is well loved and quite spoiled by her family, and who wouldn't? They themselves aren't immune to her charms and appeal especially in her fox form. Even something as serious as causing diarrhea to Uncle Bai Zhen was forgiven when she changed to red little fox.

 

The rest of her family is mostly fine, with the exception of Bai Yi, her father, and to a certain point, her mother. Though he taught her her sword skills, and her talent for drawing is from him, Bai Yi couldn't seem to handle his spirited daughter and often resorts to beating his child.

 

Not a surprise though that Bai Yi and FJ couldn't see each other eye to eye since for him, his daughter was not raised as per his standards; FJ was mostly brought up by Bai Qian while he and his wife preferred to be on their own.

 

To be honest, it's very absurd the way he treated his child on both the novels and drama. No father with any sense will present a marriage proposal contract while his daughter is intoxicated. That he won't let her correct the mistake she did at his presence while she was not at all lucid was very unfatherly. In the book, he tied her to the palanquin and sent her off to the groom's residence.

 

His reasons to be in a hurry to find FJ a husband was also very bad; he wanted someone who will help back his daughter when she takes the throne. That, is palming off not only his daughter to another person, but his responsibilities as the parent. It was bad enough that his desperation to find her a husband is so well known that DH the recluse knew it and why.

 

If FJ was lacking and disappointing in any way for him, then Bai Yi as her father should have found some means to fill the void. He could have hired tutors who could adapt their teaching methods best suited for FJ to learn. His child after all was Qing Qiu's only heiress, but he did not contribute much on her actual upbringing. And no, he can't blame his parents or Bai Qian for FJ turning out as she is.

 

 

Who better indeed. DH even told the Bais how capable FJ is. It was DH who has vocally appreciated FJ as she is.

 

“Very beautiful,” he told her. “And she'll be even more beautiful when she grows up.” He paused then added: “She has a good personality too.” Then he recalled: “Also very talented. Talented in everything.” And finally concluded: “Everything about her is wonderful.” Then as though he was speaking to himself: “Since I picked her, naturally everything about her is wonderful.” (PB2, p87)

 

Unfortunately, just as most of the Bais didn't believe in FJ, they too did the same to DH. They did not let him explain his side and took advantage of his absence. Whatever he was did not matter, the rumours they received had more weight. In the book it was Bai Zhi who blew his top. In the drama it was Bai Yi. They of all people should have known who is DH who is known all through out as a recluse and a monk. 

 

It did not help too that JH was his former runaway bride. It would matter a lot to the Bais. Book POV, there was no marriage really to JH since DH looked for his pet as JH eloped with Minsu. Drama POV, it was a ruse to help her escape Xuyang's plans for her. Drama and book POV, it was the demon clan that was embarassed by JH running away from her marriage. However, DH now is with her and did not attend his own wedding reception.

 

Xuyang was mild in the drama, but he is calculating in the book. I won't discount that the rumours of Ji Heng and DH were some kind of maneuverings from him, or from whoever Ji Heng managed to convince to help her manipulate DH before escaping to Mt Baishui. Hopefully there might be future clarifications by TQ what exactly were the rumours for the Bais to react that way against their former ruler. 

 

Even Zhe Yan hated DH enough (not just over the mind alteration book POV) to give FJ the choice to terminate her pregnancy. 

 

DH also did several mistakes and miscalculations, such as not being totally honest with FJ,  and the worse was manipulating her memories that she doesn't know anymore what was real or not between them. That will later be one of the main reasons that would make FJ leave and not wait anymore for him. 

 

About FJ leaving and choosing to be alone in the mortal realm, the silver lining to it is that if DH and his vast network could not find her, then she and Bai Gun Gun were relatively safe from Miao Luo. :smile:

Thank you for such a detailed answer.:blush:

 

It's possible that JH actually asked Xuyang to help her manipulate DX. Yes, and other demons could see DX and JH together and interpret it in their own way. Naturally, the rumors reached the Bai family as well. Even if you take a moment from the drama where FJ came to the demon realm to find out where DX. Xuyang replied that he was with JH, so FJ made her own conclusion.

 

If you take the drama version, since the part about memory manipulation is not there, I still won't blame FJ for leaving. She is still very young and misinterpreted the situation with DX. She was affected by her father's words that DX is with JX. FJ felt abandoned, used and at the same time she was also pregnant (mood swings made themselves felt).

 

Have a Zhe Yan has a reason to hate DH. Since Zhe Yan was an observer of the developing uneasy relationship between DH and FJ.  Zhe Yan sees it as if DH took advantage of FJ's naivety and then abandoned him. (according to the book version, you can add memory manipulation to this).

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

Absolutely! I totally agree, FJ's parents (Bai Yi specifically, really) in both the drama and book totally ignored what FJ wanted. Like you said, it really is a stark contrast from the way that Bai Qian is treated as pertaining to marriage. The way that she is treated is completely unfair and there definitely is some sort of double standard going on. It is absolutely also incredibly hypocritical for him to marry for love and totally ignore that FJ should have the same right. I mean, you don't even raise your own daughter and suddenly you try to micromanage her life...?

 

"When Fengjiu was little, her parents had wanted to build a love nest for just themselves to live in for a little longer, so because she was in the way, for a very long stretch of time, she was tossed over into the care of her aunt Bai Qian to raise. Growing up with this aunt, things like climbing trees and catching birds to catching fish in the streams were not things that she was unfamiliar with. Once, while her little uncle was taking a nap, she took advantage and even plucked all the feathers clean from the Jingwei bird he was raising" (APB1).

 

I must say, this passage is very telling of the way he treats her. He's only a father when it's convenient for him. 

 

Now, that being said, I can also understand why Bai Yi is worried about her future. It gives him absolutely no right to make such an important decision for FJ, but the way he sees it, FJ is so mischievous and unruly that she's not really capable of taking care of herself, and this mindset combined with his love for her leads him to this unfortunate conclusion that the only thing that can reign FJ in is finding a good husband for her. I do personally feel that this may also have to do with her ascension trials in the future, because not passing them is equivalent to death and they wouldn't want that for their beloved youngest fox would they?

 

Regarding the point you made about FJ not knowing anything about what happens on a couple's wedding night, the reason that turned out that way was because FJ was being extremely (and rightfully so) uncooperative and they were busy trying to get her into the palanquin, so they certainly didn't have time to educate her on it. I also don't think that Bai Qian necessarily purposely tore pages out of that book, and it doesn't really specifically say that she did anywhere in the book. I do seem to recall that the word used in the book could be translated as "deleted," but it doesn't mean that Bai Qian did it. It could just as easily be that whoever wrote (or copied) that book left it out. Additionally, this is (sort of) set historically (albeit in a fantastical universe), so it absolutely would make sense to me if FJ doesn't know what happens on a wedding night because Chinese society is certainly much more conservative than western society is. This is also set in history, so if she doesn't know anything, it probably wouldn't be completely out of the norm either time-period wise. 

 

 

Well said! I would like to point out, though, that they actually do have some grounds to be suspicious of DH on. No, he did not have concubines or any association with any woman during his reign, but there were plenty of rumors of his relationship with Jiheng. She was supposed to be his bride after all, right up until she disappeared on their wedding night? And who besides the two of them (and I suppose Minsu and Zhonglin) would know that this entire wedding was a sham? To the rest of the world, the Bai family included, DH was supposed to marry Jiheng. And especially because he had never been associated with a woman before Jiheng, wouldn't you be all the more wary when he suddenly disappears on his wedding day to be with this same other woman? This is probably proof enough for them, and it certainly is for FJ. Yes, they absolutely jumped to conclusions before he could show up to explain himself, but if you were in FJ's shoes, would you really wait around for 73 days for someone to come looking for you?

 

Now, a part of the blame for this misunderstanding (a part, the rest is up to the fate) is actually on DH. He made one mistake after another through the course of and after Aranya's Dream, and these mistakes all culminated in FJ finally walking away from him. 

 

Of course, everything I've said here is my own character analysis based on my personal interpretation of the evidence, so take what you will from this. :) 

Thank you for your point of view.:blush:

 

It's really annoying that as a father, Bai Yi didn't pay enough attention to FJ's upbringing. And then he expects her to obey him. I won't blame BQ. She also didn't listen to anyone when she was younger, and also likes to get drunk until she passes out and no one cares. So why should FJ unquestioningly do what her father told her to do? If she wants to wear mourning for a mortal, so be it. But no, it is necessary to quickly find her a husband, wants/does not want who will ask her.

 

I totally agree with you about DX's fault that FJ left. She held out for a long time and waited 73 days, even after learning that he had manipulated her memory. If I were her, I wouldn't have been able to wait that long, and I would have left as soon as the truth came out. I think FJ is a very strong personality. She was able to raise her son alone. What prevented her from terminating her pregnancy and then erasing her memories of loving DX? The truth is, she wanted a baby and knew she would love DX even after learning what he had done to her.

 

In matters of love, BQ is much weaker than FJ. It's very disappointing that she abandons her child twice. How Susu can still be understood, but I would like that BQ took Ali remembering what was done to her in Heaven. But that would be a different story, too simple.

 

Both DX and EX made mistakes with respect to BQ and FJ. And I am concerned about one question, let's say if the problem with Qing Qang and Miao Luo was solved without problems. Whether EX was going to reveal the truth about BQ's death trial and most importantly get her eyes back, deal with Sujin, personally, I was unhappy that he didn't do anything at all when Sujin said that Yuan Zhen was molesting her - that was such a chance to get rid of Sujin. EX could have taken away her Susu eyes as punishment, but he didn't do anything.  And DX, was going to tell the truth about changing FJ's memory? Or they just got married and their marriage would start with a lie. If the truth came out during their life together, BQ and FJ would suffer even more.

Zhe Yan also dotes with FJ and has always been very supportive of her. 

 

FJ was very young compared to them all, but at that point, she had shown that she is capable of handling stress and emotional turmoil. She managed to hold on to her sanity despite the hurt, embarrassment, the feeling of being abandoned and fooled of the one she loves, and then her pregnancy.

 

Her leaving is one of her most grown-up decisions. It is her taking control of her situation.

She did not wait that long. She stayed in Bihai Cangling for 3 days, then she and Zhong Lin went to demon realm to separately look for Xiao Yan and Xuyang. That took another 3 days before they met again. That was also when her family came to take her, and telling her the rumours of DH and JH seen together, and that not only was the demon princess looking well in his arms, the Miaohua mirror was also sent in the demon realm.

 

She waited two more days in Qing Qiu for DH,  then on the 3rd day, she found out she's pregnant. She left for the underworld the day after and stayed there another 3 days before descending to the mortal realm.

 

As for DH, it took 72 days before he reached Qing Qiu after he left demon realm and stabilised Miaoyi Huiming realm with the use of Lianxin Glass.

Also for FJ, the baby has nothing to do with the problems between his mother and the father. FJ never stopped loving DH for thousand of years, Xie Guchou has described it as instinct.

BQ would have scarred Ali if she took him with her when YH died, since she herself can not take care of herself. She was not fit to parent Ali in that 3 years. She travelled with Bai Zhen, but she did not consider seeing her son...it was Ali who would find her in mortal realm. 

 

IMO, it can be something to do too of her treatment of YH before he sacrificed his soul. In the drama she refused to see him and let him explain himself, made him stand outside for days. She has too much pride, didn't care that he's another clan's crown prince, not even that he's the twin of her shifu Mo Yuan. 

 

She was eaten by guilt over YH, and she may not have the courage to face Ali. Because Ali will ask her about the last days of his father. What would she tell their son?

YH did nothing that time since Tianjun was already there passing hasty judgment. But YH later told Sujin that he knew it was one of her games. IMO, the trial handled later by DH was more satisfying since Sujin's shenanigans came to light. Also, though Tianjun was not named as her accomplice, DH's questioning more or less him exposed him that his judgment was flawed and unfair when it comes to Sujin.

 

Ye Hua had chances though, since Bai Qian has been saying some things which he could have used as opening for a no holds barred talk between them.

Quite unlikely. His reason is that he's afraid he may not be able to reconcile with FJ if she knew the truth of his deception of her in Aranya's dream. The mind alteration was his means after he found out their very fragile fate. It was, however, an underestimation of FJ, as IMO, she would understand if he had come clean on why he kept impersonating Xi Ze in the dream realm. 

 

It was a very hard, learning lesson for both. DH will be punished of her leaving him,  FJ would live lonely and alone with BGG for not having enough patience to wait for DH's side of story.

It's understandable that EX already knew about Sujin games. Tianjun turns a blind eye to Sujin's antics, but this was the perfect chance to at least punish her. EX perfectly pretended not to like Susu. It's just not fair that Yuan Zhen alone is being punished and has been sent to the mortal realm. Why not do the same with Sujin? EX could talk about his reputation that Sujin had tarnished, blame her. Tianjun may be Sujin's patron, but she is now a concubine, and only he has the right to punish her. Sujin herself began to play a comedy and asked for punishment. Still, DX protected FJ much better, yes, he made mistakes, but he would never be able to cause her physical pain, as EX BQ did.

 

The celestials are so hypocritical in fact. The strange thing is that at Sujin's trial, until DX asked Yuan Zhen how many times he had been to the palace, and Yuan Zhen replied that the first time, no one guessed Sujin's scheming or everyone knew but kept quiet. Tianjun is the most useless ruler. I would even like that in TMOPB DX returned to his throne and brought order to the rotten Heavenly Palace.

 

As for the events after Aranya's dream, I also think that DX would never have told FJ the truth for fear of losing her. I never thought that the almighty DX would be afraid of anything. His biggest fear is losing FJ, her love. Like the situation with Shen Ye, when DX thought he had lost FJ. In any case, DX and FJ have overcome their unfortunate fate and will now be together forever. I'm wondering what test in 10,000 years FJ will have to pass? Is there any chance that she will be blessed by the Heavens and become a supreme celestial without a trial? She will be rewarded for all her suffering, because the heavens were touched by her pure love for DX.

Is EX supposed to be Yehua?

 

Yes, Yuan Zhen is punished, but its because Sujin was smart and played on the fact that Tianjun couldn't stand Yuan Zhen because of Sang Ji's infatuation with Shao Xin. Tianjun likely didn't even bother to question what happened; he only really heard what Sujin said, and that's part of his flaw as a ruler. He hears what he wants to hear. But ultimately, the truth does come out and Yuan Zhen, although he did suffer through that trial, is exonerated. 

 

Sujin is punished—in fact, in the drama (not sure about the book) she's banished and punished to reincarnate as a mortal for basically forever. It isn't immediately, and only occurs after everything else happens, for being a coward and not guarding the bell properly, but she is still punished. Yehua actually would not be able to punish Sujin because even though she is his concubine (is this what you're saying?), she still has Tianjun's backing, which does still mean quite a lot. And he did actually run her through with a sword when she showed up for their wedding, so that's something, I guess?

I believe both Yehua and Liansong knew of Sujin's scheming, but they obviously can't say something that would contradict Tianjun's decision because as we all know, his decision was already final, even before anyone opened their mouths. Tianjun saw what he wanted to see; he expected Yuan Zhen to turn out exactly like his father, so that's exactly what he saw. Of course it's not right, and a ruler should be open to hearing all sides of a story, but this is one of the current Tianjun's major flaws (and of course it also contributes to the development of the storyline).

In 10,000 years or so, Fengjiu is going to have a trial with three lightning strikes. It's the trial every fairy goes through to ascend to High Immortal. In the world that Tangqi built, I doubt that there would be a way in which anyone would be able to skip either of the trials. The three lightning strikes can be taken on by another immortal, but the ascension trial for High God status could only be taken on by the individual him/herself. Those trials are meant as an equalizer; you can only pass if you're good enough to, and regardless of how much Fengjiu suffered (a lot), her suffering can't just cancel out her trials.

Drama POV, Yuan Zhen was forced fed alcohol by Sujin and her maid Xinnu. The young lad was stunned and couldn't even say something to defend himself. Worse, even his father,the supposedly brightest son Sangji, let his temper get the better of him, and apologised for something his son never did.

 

Tianjun has spoiled and acquiesced to almost anything Sujin asks. YH and Lian Song know this very well. Yuan Zhen was the poor victim of Sujin's schemes to get YH. If YH fought Tianjun openly against Sujin, there could be more problems later on, since Tianjun still has the power to punish him.

IMO, one of the best scenes of TMOPB. Sujin only lived because Tianjun timely rescued her, according to Nai Nai while talking to BQ about Su Su.

Uncle and nephew knew Yuan Zhen was framed. The eye roll of YH when Sujin was acting pitiful, LOL!

 

@Lazuria, YH would later tell Sujin why he's not punishing her: it is because she's "still housing" the eyes of Su Su. That was a warning, but because of her spoilt and arrogant ways, Sujin wilfully ignored it and kept scheming.

The 3 lightning strikes is the test to ascend into a high immortal. It can be predicted when, like how child Ye Hua did his. He ascended before a particular age set by Tianjun as the condition so that he can see his mother Consort Lexu. 

 

It can also be taken by somebody else, like how Mo Yuan did for BQ. DH may do it too for FJ, but perhaps only if FJ should not take it (ill, pregnant). Anyhow, the heart ring and Tiancang cage should also help FJ on her lightning trial.

 

The other heavenly trial to ascend to high deity status can not be predicted when, how long, or what would it be. There aren't exemptions even if there were plenty of previous sufferings or merits. Whatever FJ went through while very young would give her core strength for this trial.

 

Bai Qian after deep sleep thought she got lucky waking up a high goddess. But then she also thought it was for resealing Qing Cang before she slept after drinking Zhe Yan's potion (woke up without memories of YH and as Su Su).

 

There are still 4 more upcoming 3L3W books. When it's FJ's turn to ascend, our dearest TQ will surely write about it. :)

Thank you for explaining to me all the details of the exaltation of the celestial.:smiley:

Now I'll look forward to what Tangqi has in store for DX and FJ in the next books. All I know is that they're going to have a second child - a girl.:tounge_wink::love:

Thank you for your answers. I really like to read them and listen to different points of view.:kiss_wink:

Hey @UnluckyWhiteCat, how are you doing? How is it there...the news doesn't look so good. 

 

In the U.S.? Which news? LOL.

 

I don't know how much news of us you get internationally, but Covid appears to be getting worse so... yeah. Now more personally, I (and most other students honestly) am super concerned about having clinical placements pulled this coming semester because Covid is getting worse again. The silver lining for me is that I'm perfectly happy with remote learning and being at home all the time, so that's actually pretty great :). I know that a lot of other people are struggling with it though. Good news is the vaccines are rolling out, and from what I'm seeing, the majority of healthcare workers were already at least offered it, at least around where I am. 

 

I don't know if you'd have seen, but the whole political situation is getting kind of out of hand so there's also that. I don't really affiliate myself with either political party but imo, both parties' handling of literally everything going on right now is just atrocious, and they're just there trying to play the blame game with each other. And the rioting is just... no. :/

 

How are ya'll doing outside of the U.S.? Better, I hope!

My nurse aunt in Vancouver, BC had the Pfizer vaccine last week. So far she said she feels fine. I haven't heard yet from my cousins in NJ and in CA if they already had.

All I can think of while seeing the rioters are confirmed COVID cases among them who joined starting from next week...

 

Some keep harping of the high survival rate to those who get it. Yeah right, but to survive, how long does it take them to stay in the hospital? What are the treatments and procedures do they go through? They keep comparing it to flu, but it isn't like flu if it takes weeks and months to be well enough for discharge!

Vaccinations started in my place using either Sinopharm or Pfizer from the other week. But since I just had the flu vaccine 3 weeks ago, I can't have the COVID vaccine yet for at least another week. Vaccination is free and available for anyone 18 years and above, though priority given for the senior citizens and frontliners.

Yeah... I just... don't know what to say. Even if the death rate is low, why would you risk yourself and your entire family?? -sigh-

That's good to hear! This means that everyone is able to go get the vaccine, yes? I think here they still haven't gotten to the general population yet.

The info drive for where to take the vaccines here ramped up when the vaccine shipments started arriving. Yes, it's for everyone who meets the criteria. :)

 

It's also a wait and see for some, since this is a new vaccine. But more and more people are taking appointments. Med workers here started having as early as Sep.

 

I hope that it won't become another politicised issue when the vaccines are made available for general public in your place. 

 

PS. Take care there

I know if Dong Hua was raised by the fox clan, he wouldn’t have become emperor. That isn’t to say he wouldn’t have become respectable in his own right like Zhe Yan.

i can’t helping imaging Dong Hua and Feng Jiu having a similar love story to Bai Zhen and Zhe Yan if Dong Hua was raised by the Bais

Famous for sword skills and metal forging as Zhe Yan is for his medical knowledge and peach forest.

Still a special and close relationship ^_^ with similar camaraderie as FJ and Mi Gu.

 

Have you voted for ELOD? :lol:

We're doing terrible. Everyday at least where I'm in. My families who isn't from the US would asked and we can talk for hours and hours about what's going on here causing everyday there's always something new.  :/// Literally a few days ago there were riots and it was crazy. Some people are really irresponsible. As a student also, our school is kinda forcing us to go back and assure us that we'll be safe. When last semester wearing mask wasn't forcefully meaning yea students come in without mask sometimes, they don't check our temperature or have some health questions we have to answer, and social distancing? We barely have any. All cramp up when we have to move from class to class. From what I heard from the face to face students since I did remote. And then the school question why some people have covid.  Although I'm doing remote learning this year so I'm not sure how they will be more strict towards covid regulation this semester.

 

However during this whole remote learning and quarantine, I am still addicted to ELOD. I did watch other dramas but somehow circle back to ELOD. Takes my mind off the chaotic things going around. Wish Donghua can use his power and just whoosh all the Covid away.
