I have yet ...to watch AOL and Goodbye Princess..is it good? Or more precisely..happy ending? I really hate sad ending..I remember when watched TMOPB,  even it's was happy ending for Yehua/Bai Qian I was so heartbroken with the fate of my fave couple DongFeng( I cursed the scripts writter)..I mean really really painfully heartwrenching...then boom!...Vengo/Reba reprises their role as DongFeng...amends my broken heart...and here I am always happy with this Pillow Books forum..practically my happy place :D

I was quite tempted to watching it(AOL) since the male lead was Reba's co-star in Sweets Dream.

 

i recommend you not to watch AOL, but read the book. The book is amazin' :heart: One of my favorites, on the same place as Pillow book. But if you wanna watch the drama, watch it for Deng Lun. He is sooooooo gorgeous as Demon Lord (insert drooling, stupid face :love:). As to Goodbye my princess, I don't have an opinion yet about the drama, because i am waiting for it to finish airing, then start binging. I read the comments on mydramalist though, and people are upset with what the writers did...meh.

And yes, this place it's really our little happy place :heart::heart:

 I wonder if they will keep the same voice actors for Reba and Vengo. I really liked Reba's voice in TMOPB, though i know a lot of people hated it. And i am also happy that they changed the decorum for Taichen Palace. The current one seems more lively and luxurious. Idk what to say about the clothes though...they look a bit low budget in comparison to TMOPB.

1) In the end, Chen Ye never got to see Aranya in her final moments :dissapointed_relieved: 

So sad he had no idea until she was already long gone :bawling:

 

3) Aranya's body and soul disintegrated after she used the Soul Evocation sorcery, so there wasn't even a chance of him getting closure

 

The truth was too much for him to bare so "lost his will to live" and thus submerged himself underwater. What tragic fate :persevere:

 

 

2) I don't think they are Chen Ye and Aranya's reincarnations because the whole mortal arc doesn't happen until after Aranya (as Fenjiu's shadow) "fails" to repay Chen Ye (respectively Donghua's shadow)

 

1)If ever there was a tragic couple in this Pillow Book story— it would definitely be Chen Ye & Aranya. I’m surprised that we’re only talking about them now because Chen Ye LOVED Aranya so much. All from the very beginning of Aranya’s birth. He made a lot of sacrifices for her all of it self-less in his own way although to Aranya it may have gone unseen or may have seemed cold. The sacrifice of keeping her alive as a child in that pit with what was it? His blood or the fruit tree.  He was only a few years older than her too so he was fairly young making that great decision of devotion to a child who would’ve died if it wasn’t for his care. To Aranya’s parents she was nothing but to Chen Ye she was everything. Also he left with the intention of coming back to be with her, correct? Chen Ye didn’t even want to leave her but the blight was thinking in the long term for them, not short term. Fate’s ultimate trick was (who was it? Mo Ye finding her? And taking her away before it was the right time) having her marry Xize. And by that time Of Chen Ye’s return it was already too late. So he had to play as if Aranya meant nothing to him until her death & reincarnation. 

2)   So this is where we plug in FJ&DH. From the way I see it, our main couple were just borrowing the bodies of Aranya & Xize to buy them time to heal and accumulate (what’s it called? essence? Idk correct me if I’m wrong).

3) Chen Ye is the real person who suffered if we’re looking at it from the perspective of them being the main couple instead of FJ&DH. The whole reincarnation was double because it was both Aranya & Feng Jiu (her shadow & DH’s housing her soul sighing Aranya’s body although mistakenly). Second chances is a big theme in Pillow Book. It’s done time and time again by our main couple FJ&DH but as a reader we’re guaranteed kinda an intuitive happy ending unlike Chen Ye & Aranya because they are minor secondary couples that help build up the main’s story. 

   The big difference between both couples is that they had different results in their gamble for a second chance. After Aranya’s deaths Chen Ye agreed to having a whole new world created all for the chance of getting her back. Aranya doesn’t care for him at all but Chen Ye was still willing. So when that world was destroyed, it was bittersweet knowing that they had another chance at getting things right , their souls enlocked, after so and so millions on years.

 

And this has been A Deeper Analization: Chen Ye & Aranya Edition. 

 

Thoughts?

Without a doubt, fate has been cruel to Chen Ye. Everything that could go wrong, did go wrong. Aranya never even knew to the day she died that Chen Ye loved her.
When reading the book, I imagine Chen Ye and Aranya have different face than Donghua and FengJiu. I see them as the second lead couple with a tragic love story.
But since Reba gonna play Aranya and Vengo gonna play Chen Ye in the drama, then I guess these characters will just be an extension story to the main lead couple.

 

By the way, if Donghua gonna use his original face while pretending to be Xize, and Chen Ye also exist inside the dreamverse too, won't people notice that they have the same face?

Donghua used Corrections spell....replace Biyinios's ( People in Aranya  Dreamverse) memories of Xixe appearance with his own.

1)The correction spell means everyone will think that DongHua's face is what Xize looks like.

2)Vengo gonna play as DongHua and also Chen Ye.

Combine 1) and 2) = Xize and Chen Ye has the same face in the Dreamverse, right?

I was actually wondering how they would do that as well! I really hope they stick to the book as much as they can, I don't know how they're going to twist the mortal arc. Is QingTi (spelling?) still going to die if their focus is on FJ/DH? Then would he die and FJ have to get the Saha Fruit in Aranya arc? Ahhh all the questions, I hope the drama airs soon, the anticipation is killer! (reading book again atm!)

1)Yes..everyone in Aranya Dream includes Su Moye, Fengjiu/Aranya and also ChenYe sees Donghua's face as Xixe.

Su Moye and Fengjiu forgot how Dijun looked due to the glitches when they entered the dream.

 

2)Same face different appearance.

Since ChenYe was also effected by Donghua's correction spell..its was supposedly Donghua should be thinking why they  were lookalikes.

 

Donghua's reasons : Too lazy..

 

Excerptions from PB2 page 332...

 

"When he first entered this world, Donghua never actually thought than Chen Ye could be his shadow,  there had been time when he felt the the Archmage's breath was somewhat familiar."

Yup this also bother me, even with correction spell Dong hua himself should recognize Chen ye. In novel Aranya and Chen ye's face is different, I really wish they could use different actor/actress for Aranya/Chen ye but maybe the budget for this drama is not as big as TMOPB? Using different actor/actress will give a fresh feeling and more impact with the revelation (Like Goblin)

Not sure if it is Qingti or the Crown Prince(Vengo) or somebody else, someone in the mortal realm must die. That event is compulsory :P

In TMOPB, anyone who met YeHua for the first time would say "Mo Yuan?!" or "You look like Mo Yuan" or something similar. I would imagine Biyiniaos in the dreamverse would give the same reaction towards Xize & Chen Ye.

Totally agree. Goblin gives bigger impact because they used different actor/actress for past life and current life. Everyone would start speculating whether "is he..?" or "could she be...?". It would be more intriguing.  

I'm usually slow/blur at guessing plot twist. More secrets = More impact during revelation = More happy I am. :lol:

And this has been A Deeper Analization: Chen Ye & Aranya Edition. 

 

Thoughts? 

From my perception Aranya was also love Chen ye..she was deeply cared.

 Page 324

Lord Xixe told Chen Ye :

 

Qinghua showed your memorial to her. Before heading to the battlefield at sxi' xing she said she might not have been for love in this lifetime.  You were what she had fought for. Even if she had with you was only illusory,  she was fine with it. She just didn't expect you to hate her so much. No matter how generous she was , she couldn't bear it after all. 

 

When Qinghua showed Aranya supposedly ChenYe's memorial( someone who died in war)..Aranya thoughts that Chen Ye was dead already.  One of the reason why Aranya sacrificed  herself..just like Chen Ye did when he know Aranya was dead.

 What a tragic...indeed...so much unfolded...misunderstanding.

Donghua  corrections spell already covered that part:lol:

 

@Sisca_TVXQfor me it's a good thing that Chen Ye and Aranya play by Vengo/Reba( more precisely Donghua/Fengjiu)

Because.. If Aranya played by another actress we have to see the part where Donghua almost making out part where Aranya's sisters gave Aranya.. (Fengjiu's soul in Aranya body...mean another woman body)...an ecstasy pill with hope they can slander her sleep/cheating with her teacher Su moye)...and we also have to see lovey dovey Donghua and Aranya( who was not Reba) or they slept together eventhough nothing happened..thanks to Donghua's self control..for me it's kind of disturbing just to imagined it...have to see all of that...right.:)

One if the thing I loved about DongFeng because their love was solely theirs....."first" in everything.

 

Comparison in TMOPB drama( I didn't  read the book) YeHua wasn't BaiQian first love..it's was Li jing( wasn't it)sorry if I was wrong.

@Sisca_TVXQ I wish there's another drama for ChenYe/Aranya , their reincarnation and love story..and Vengo/ Reba play the roles.:D

@euphoenix @rapo65 thanks for the recommendation (AOL)

 

PS:  I was way..tooooo.. much posts /comments already ...sorry about that..hopefully you guys not feeling bored , mifted or something..

 What is your favorite part in Aranya's dream? I have to admit that when i first started reading the book, i got so annoyed with this arc, I almost wanted to skip it. but then baam, the feelings hit me hard. one of my favorite scene is when our Xiao Fengfeng went with Dijun to admire the blooming flowers at night..woooa, amazing scene!!! extremely beautiful and poetic.

 

Another one is when Xiao Bai was crying in the garden and Dijun heard her and dropped the bowl of medicine. it really broke my heart...i wonder what would have happened if Su Moye told her at that moment that Dijun is in the dream with her, but he doesn't recognize her. what would Xiao Bai feel? i think she would feel very confused, maybe even wonder why Dijun failed to recognize her till now. would she go to tell him that she is Fengjiu? hmm..i honestly don't think so. i think she would rather wait for him to recognize her by himself. 

 

And my utmost favorite part from Aranya's dream is their date on the Maiden Festival. woooaaa...how he waited for her under that tree:heart::heart: so, so pretty. i hope they will not skip this part and make it as artistically as it was in the book. I want my big tree and Fulin flowers!!! And the villager's comment that a powerful deity is on a date trying to impress his girlfriend! :joy:

If that the case..soo OK with it because Aranya/Chen Ye in their own world ...three hundreds yrs ago...was totally different. Different time, different world, different story.:grin:

 

Ang also We know the current Queen in Fanyin Valley was Junuo and her son is Meng Shao one of Fengjiu good friends but How come we didn't get to see Chen Ye in the Fanyin Valley and why Donghua did not meet him everytime Donghua visits with purpose to deal with Miaoluo..did he was in Aranya Dreamverse all the time ..the world he's created to collect Aranya life essence?

 

Come to think of it If Fengjiu didn't trapped inside Aranya Dream we were deemed to...not knowing about Donghua/ Fengjiu's shadow..especially Donghua himself..Zhonglin likely not remember because he and elder Yunzhuang was taking a sedative or anesthetics something of some sort...after he ask elder Yunzhuang to do the deed.

Fengjiu's arts...OMG...super cute:love:

They mentioned it in PB 1:

Meng Shao told her that more than two hundred years ago, Fanyin Valley had also once had four different seasons. This year-round snowfall was only a recent phenomenon of the recent two hundred years. And if they were to speak of this phenomenon, they'd have to speak of the Biyiniao Clan's famous Archmage Chen Ye who had sought seclusion for many years past.
It was said this Archmage for reasons unknown had locked himself at home one day, placed the three seasons into his sword, and stored it away inside his sleeve. He had not left his residence in the many years henceforth. Ever since, Fanyin Valley was deprived of spring, summer, and fall.

I think the "memorial" Qinghua showed to Aranya in the prison was meant to be a "formal report" or "formal request". This word has been used several times in the book and it was never use to mean "memorial for someone who died".

 

“Xize is really quite honorable. Although this marriage was meaningless to him, he never once over the years submitted a memorial to ask for a divorce."

 

Depends on the translator, sometimes he/she translate it as "report".

 

Qinghua turned, then after two steps, looked back and said, “Your case has been settled this morning, the execution is in three days. Chen Ye sent this report at noon, requesting His Majesty to move the execution to the shrine.

 

Aranya never thought that Chen Ye was dead. She thought Chen Ye betrayed her.

@rapo65 To be frankly..most of my Favourite in Aranya Dreamverse was involved "sexy sensual time" like..their first kiss in the cave most precisely Donghua kiss Fengjiu and Fengjiu just reciprocated..Donghua was overwhelmingly happy because Fengjiu's spirit/soul returns to her own body a awhile in Aranya body...

 

Ps : Actually their first kiss was ..when blindfolded Fengjiu's fell on top of Donghua...then she bite his lips:joy:

 

I love your favourite list...all of them was also my favourite...enjoyed Fulings flower at night...Maiden festival.. the kissing part..Donghua's still blame the water serpent poison...for his "head over heels" attitudes...poor our naive adorable Fengjiu..

 

The scenes when Dijun dropped a bowl of medicine...Fengjiu's cry her heart out until she exhausted and sleep...the scene I really looking forward...sadly heartbreaking.:bawling:

Thank you so much for your explanations about Chen Ye cases..

I can't believe I miss the most important part...look like i have to read Aranya Dream parts again for the third actually since the first time I read PB2 I mostly skipped the parts.

And how i wish my English was better...Memorial..such a huge definition.

So ..after its was clearly Aranya took her own life even give up on reincarnation because she felt betrayed..

A big sigh here....how can she make such a reckless decision??  She should live longer to help ChenYe to get whatever's he wants...that's was her life are meant to be...tsk..tsk so much for.. 

 

 "She might not have been for love in this lifetime. You were what she had Fought for."

 

Aranya's grievance was so deep...her desperation..despair..eating her heart out..felt betrayed..and at end she betrayed herself by taking her own life and leaving ChenYe..

 

"No matter how generous she was , she couldn't bear it after all."

 

Unfolded misunderstanding till the end..blame it on her terribly heartless mother( Qinghua) what's a shitty mother...

On mydramalist an user (phoe-enix) said this: "...because of the 70th commemoration of People's Republic of China. That thing about the commemoration is just a speculation, something about gaining back our culture and identity (chinese), so probably more republican dramas during this ban. NRTA is likely not going to explain their reason for this decision. Strictly webdramas I feel will still have a chance to be able to air this year, but for tv dramas... well... I try not to think on this worst case scenario".

This is so ridiculous <_< *sigh*

I wanted to check out Legend of White Snake too (supporting TMOPB's Bai Zhen woot woot!), sad that I can't now...

I wonder why it said Pillow Book was affected though :huh: it's suppose to air in the 4th quarter so I hope it won't get delayed by this.

What is your favorite part in Aranya's dream?

 

1. Absolute favorite/most anticipated part for me is definitely (same scene everyone loves haha) when Fengjiu cries her heart out with the wind blowing and petals scattering as Donghua drops the medicine bowl and discovers Aranya was actually Fengjiu. The feelsss!! The angst!!! :lol:

 

Also looking forward to:

 

2. The sizzlin' yet hilarious lovesick potion scene, where Fengjiu pins down DH (as Xize) to the bed and he's just like 'who taught you this? I sure didn't" hahaha...:joy:

Xize: “ 'Dragging to bed, stripping off clothes, pushing down, lying on top'...'These four steps were done quite adeptly,' he seemed to sigh, 'but I don't remember ever teaching you this. Where did you learn it?'  "

Fengjiu: “ 'From books,' she foggily answered him. 'In books are jade-like beauties, in books are houses of gold, you can find everything in books.' ” 

Xize: " 'Does that book tell you what to do next?' The man's voice was very low. "

Fengjiu: "She slightly moved away from him to watch his face and nodded her head. 'It does.' ... 'The next step is to blow out the light, after that would be the morning after,' she told him in all seriousness. Then she was suddenly confused: “But where is the light?”

Xize: "The young man maintained his vulnerable pose, having both hands pinned down by her. He gazed at her a while then at last said, 'I think something was left out when you read that book.' ”

 

(And all the extra goodies in between ;):wub:)

 

3. Another hilarious scene when DH+FJ first enter Aranya's dream where FJ reaps payback and kisses DH thinking it's all a dream, "[shocking] Dijun into a stunned state". She thinks she's "taking advantage" of DH but then he completely flips it on her...

 

 

Spoiler

 

"She thought to herself that just a moment ago, she was suspicious this was a dream, the next moment Cang'yi Shenjun had changed to Donghua. This proved it was indeed a dream...That year when she left Jiuchongtian, the only regret she had was that she had entrusted her love to the wrong person and never got anything back; it was a disgrace to Qingqiu. Since they got to see each other again in a dream, and dreams could change any minute, what would she do if Donghua vanished from her in the next second? She must seize this moment to kiss him. Such opportunity doesn't come knocking twice. It wasn't bad if she could reap payback even if only inside her dream. "

 

"...Fengjiu felt satisfied with this display. She was taking advantage of him – he should sit there like a statue. It'd be better if afterwards his face reddened from the embarrassment of being taken advantage of."

 

"...She released him after a couple of licks, feeling it wasn't too bad that she had taken advantage of him to this point. And anyhow, she wasn't too experienced, she didn't really know how else to take further advantage of him."

 

"...Finally content, she moved back to lie down on the pillow when she was held back by a strong force. She hadn't realized what was happening when Dijun had already loomed closer to her face...Dijun looked at her a while, then ever so naturally bent down and gently grazed over her lips with his icy ones. Fengjiu dazedly heard a string snap inside her head. He studied her with deep, dark eyes. Seeing her lashes flutter, he unhurriedly deepened the force, coaxed open her lips, easily found her tongue, and guided her to clumsily return his kiss."

 

"...Her mind had turned to mush by this kiss. This glob of mush faintly thought to herself: compared to the fluttering kiss she initiated, his kiss was so brutal in comparison. Dijun was definitely a god who never wanted to lose. He was on an entirely other level to pay back even one teeny tiny offense."

...

 

"...She found out today for the first time that not only lips were used in kissing, but that tongues could also be used. She had always thought kissing only involved touching lips and nothing else, and that the more love there was, the longer they must stay attached. For example, she had pressed her lips onto Dijun's for so long, her love must have reached the depth of the sea."

 

 

Also hilarious when DH realizes she thinks it's all a dream hahaha :joy:

 

“But this is my dream, so I could do whatever I want.” Here, she suddenly realized. Yes, this was her dream, Donghua was created from her imagination. Usually, she never won against him in an argument, how could he still be so arrogant even in her dream? He was really disregarding the dream's owner!

 

She looked at Donghua fearlessly with newfound bravado: “You, you are merely created from my imagination. In my own dream, I can take advantage of you all I want to, however I want to. But you can't do the same to me.” She barreled on now that her mind was clearing: “You don't have to counter what I said with reason, because there are no reasons in this dream, my words are the only reason!” Her speech was said with conviction. When she finished, she herself was a little awed. She quietly watched Dijun.

 

Dijun was rendered blank for a long while."

 

 

Only did a top 3 because there's so many I want to put on this list!

(Especially if it was a list including all favorite scenes from both part 1 and part 2 of the pillow book)

Let's be honest, I'm just looking forward to everything haha
