Xun Ru woke with a start, stretching his aching limbs and blinking in the too-bright late morning sun. He sneezed harshly twice and struggled to remember just where the hell he was. After a few attempts, he clambered very slowly to his feet and tried to rub the ache out of his head. Out of habit, he patted at his coin purse and was relieved to find it still attached to his belt. He staggered towards the faint clamour of the soldier’s drill yard, bracing himself for the derisive glares from the Ice Tribe warriors.

He had been angry last night… very angry, and very desperate. He had emptied his water jug the moment the Earth Tribe guards had been settled in the barracks. Of course, the jug didn’t contain water. It held potent Black Willow Cider he had pilfered from the royal buttery in the palace at Sanctuary. The resulting alcohol-fueled display of self-pity and indignation had concluded with him pa…

Outside the Great Palace of the Fire City, red magic lilies bloom beautifully, but the apothecaries, maids and guards all pass by with worrying faces, not even looking at the flowers once.

Recently, the health of the Fire Queen has quickly deteriorated. The Fire Tribe has just been formed not very long ago. Although it has quickly asserted itself among the Three Realms as a formidable opponent of the leading Ice Tribe and making numerous smaller tribes its vassals, it is still worrying for everyone that in the middle of all this, the Fire Queen has fallen sick.

In the Grand Hall, the chief guard Huo Jian is respectfully recommending to the Queen the medicines that the apothecaries have prescribed. But contrary to his concerned face, the Queen looks at those medicines indifferently, then moves her hand, signalling him to stop talking.

"Your Majesty." Huo Jian respectfully bows: &quo…

On the fifth day of the peace talks, Mo Yuan felt like he had lost thousands of years of cultivation to diplomacy. His head constantly hummed from suppressed tension and his patience, usually one of his fortes, was running out. The Demons had easily filled two full days with empty, pointless assurances of good-will, likely to wear him down.

Xing Jiu entered Mirage Hall thirty minutes later, taking the extra time to walk off the excitement of the evening’s activities with Lan Shang before his audience with the King.

Rants and Weekly Raves #140 (RAWR)

Trotwood: Where is everyone? All I see is Jo's red, and I know you guys are watching more than I am. I'm even behind on Sung Swoon because there was too much going on in RL and I needed something crazy instead of Swoonworthy (see below).
JoAnne: I had an advantage - I set up the post this time (it's usually me or Kakashi) but I did it really late this week. Saturday, I think. So others might not have had a chance to make entries yet. I was thinking I hadn't done much but once I started making notes I realized I did pretty well this week.
kakashi: If by "you guys" you, Trotwood, mean me, you are very much mistaken, for I am still not watching anything. Actually, it feels like less than anything. Real life has taken the definition of "totally swamped" to the next level.

Ah, but before I forget: CONGRATS DR. Panda!!!!!!

Bad Thief, Good Thief 도둑놈, 도둑님 - Episode 1 (KimJiCap)

kakashi: My darling Kim Ji-hoon, are you really making me go through hours upon hours of ultra complicated, melodramatic childhood stories? Yes, you are. This shit is pretty dark, people.
SakiVI: This childhood stuff is so irritating when they could've addressed all this in a monologue. And one guy keeps crying to the point I want to slap him.
JoAnne: I guess we're going to go through their WHOLE childhood, since we're starting with them so young. I'm not finding it hard to follow, though.

Shao Wan was extremely proud of herself: she had gone through two days of what they called “diplomatic meetings" without losing her temper, without further angering the God of War (though she was sorely tempted, more than usual after the beach encounter) and without gutting Cheng Yin alive. Yes, she was on her best behavior, and she occasionally looked at Fong Hung over her shoulder seeking his nod of approval for it.

Father Immortal said that since Shao Wan was new to philosophy she and Mo Yuan could study together. “These last few years, Mo Yuan has cultivated patience and stability. He should be a good helpmate,” he concluded, stroking his beard.

As the royal guard fed and watered the horses before their journey, Song Bai watched Ying Kong Shi speaking quietly with Granny and his unruffled companion, dazzling light and shadow dark heads bent together in deep conversation. She was ecstatic that the young ruler had agreed to help their entourage, but the swiftness with which he had changed his mind made her suspicious. What had made him suddenly reverse course, and why had he looked at her so strangely when he had touched her arm? She studied him as he spoke with the old woman, his hands moving with excited gestures. This was the most animated she had seen him since he had first materialized in the forest.

For reasons not entirely clear to the Water King of the Western Seas and his Queen, this year’s White Rock Sea Festival drew a much larger crowd than any of the previous festivals. As usual, they had sent out a generous amount of invitations to this cultural celebration of Realm diversity, expecting many polite refusals. However, more and more immortals had put their name on the guest list this year as the festival drew closer.
