Nan Feng and Fu Yao a cute.
Apparently Yu Wu is getting an official EN translation next. Fun!
>>3713230I picked up Yu Wu after reading and loving 2ha but set it down for another day. It wasn't meshing with me but since it's getting a translation now maybe I'll try it again. I rabu shizun with all my heart. I want to cherish him.
Read QJJ right now
What is it about Gusu boys that makes them love Yunmeng boys so much?
>>3713246>LXC x JCI am so confused by the ship. Why is it so popular? I don't remember them even interacting with each other. Doesn't LXC make more sense with JGY?
>>3713536>>3713536I don't know, I read a convincing post once that made it make a little more sense to me but I've never been a fan of "no content" ships or even side ships for that matter. There's just not enough screentime for me to feel invested in the relationship or be able to catapult off of for fanfiction/art. Am I right to say that Xicheng is popular mosty in the Western fandom? >Picnotrel but god I wanna fuck shizun
Anyone has a link to the full english translation of Heaven Official's Blessing?
>>3713635There is a link in the last thread
>>3713654Isn't that link just to volumes 1 and 2?
>>3713657It's the epub of the full, original fan TL. Good shit.
>>3713170This hat is fine. >>3713841Who is the most awkward character in this picture?
Non-flashback Xie Lian is just too boring to sustain a story, TGCF is like reading gay supernatural Chinese Mister Roger’s Neighborhood.
>>3714379I disagree. Xie Lian is clever and funny, and I think his ability to roll with the punches and take things in stride is an admirable and compelling quality that makes me want to keep rooting for him. He gets more layers as you learn more about his past, and seems less wholesome as the story progesses. The Xianle flashbacks get really intense.
>>3714379I can see where you're coming from, since he doesn't directly cause a lot of the plot stuff in several arcs, but this is still a really bad take.
Any opinion on Sha Po Lang?
>>3714379Kek, I just started reading TGCF after actively choosing not to pick it up for a while. Xie Lian is still too feminine for my tastes and I wasn't attracted to Hualian's relationship dynamic because it seems like all of the struggle/drama is extra-couple instead of intra-couple (no fun). I watched HOB donghua and kept getting spammed with art on my TL so I'll finally get around to reading TGCF but I'm not very optimistic about Xie Lian or Hualian.>>3713841>>3713899>Who is the most awkward character in this picture?Awkward? Binghe.But god damn it Xia Sini is so cute I want to hold him and carry him around the market and buy him sweets. The fact that I will never hold a Xia Sini is the blackest blackpill. I want to do his hair! I want to teach him how to ride his sword! I want to keep him company!!!! I want to make fun of him (a little)! I want to let him boss me around!!! I LOVE XIA SINI!!!!! I CHERISH XIA SINI!!!! Everyday that he is not sitting on my lap and happily eating is a day I do not want to live!
>>3714830Good shit. Priest is a really great author.
>>3714853I do agree that HuaLian is a little overly saccharine for my tastes. Probably why I feel more invested in side ships for tgcf than I do for me main couple. Namely FengXing and QuanYu. But I still think the story is worth it. The second flashback arc is when shit really gets real.I'm still hoping someone can recommend me a novel with more of a FengXin dynamic. Enemies to lovers, dumbass himbo with a temper problem meets stuck-up emotionally crippled tsundere with a secret heart of gold. Can't communicate even when their lives literally depend on it. Love that shit.
>>3714965You want gay Han/Leia?
>>3715717I hate you so very much.
Does anyone have the extra chapters of TGCF? I've searched but the links I have found are dead or deleted.
>>3716512More Word of Honor art pls thx
Regardless of MXTX's thoughts, I think Wangxian has the best sex
>>3716519Wangxian has the kinkiest sex.
>>3716519HuaHua just has an 800 year head start. The other two main pairs will catch up eventually—Bingmei has unfulfilled magic dick potential and WWX is the horniest MXTX bottom.
>>3716605I love Binghe so much
>>3716604I want to do depraved things to Wei Ying (with his permission)
>>3716768The poor juniors have to listen to that every night... they are the true MVPs
>>3713536The whole healing together post-canon potential mostly, since they're both alive and sad at the end of the story, and the fact that their lives are similar enough to understand and help each other. They're both sect leaders who had to become so very young in very violent circumstances, they both were on the run and later fought in the war, they both know what it means to mourn someone hated by society, whom they trusted but who kept things from them, and by whom they felt betrayed. And yet, they are very different people personality-wise who could benefit from the other's perspective.That's why I like the ship personally, even though I understand where LXC/JGY fans come from.
>>3713536>Why is it so popular?Is it?
Wwx is very bitey...
Rape your shizun!
>>3718742Cherish your shizun!
>>3718890Rape your shizun!!!
>>3718892why not both?
>>3718942TXJ and Bing-ge should hang out and discuss shizun-bullying.
>>3718953binghe would never openly admit to bullying his shizun on purpose
>>3718954Bing-ge not Bing-mei.
It's apparently rare pair celebration this week. Any MC x non-ML ships that you like? :hmm:
>>3718976Absolutely not a rarepair, but I love LiuShen.
>>3718986Liu Qingge is such a good shidi.
>>3718953What is it about shizun that young virile gongs find so irresistible?
>>3719395what's the basic premise of this one? i see the monocle guy on my TL but don't know anything about the who/what/where
>>3713167QuestionOTD: Who is the clingiest of MXTX's tops and why?
>>3719361Hot for teacher. >>3719463Binghe > LWJ >>>>>> Hua Cheng.
>>3719451It's Sha Po Lang: "In the age of the Great Liang Dynasty, the lives of the people were made convenient with steam-powered machines that run on a fuel named Ziliujin. Chang Geng, who lived in a small countryside village, shared a distant relationship with his mother while his stepfather was away most of the year round, and the only people he was close to were two little kids, the village teacher, and his yifu – adoptive father. But his life was flipped upside down one day following the barbaric Man tribes’ invasion, and it turned out that his entire identity had been an illusion."I'm finishing the novels, ask me questions if you have some!
>>3719468Is there such thing as hot for student?
>>3719463100% Binghe, no question
>>3719463Binghe is more outward with his clinginess, I feel like Lan Zhan tries his best to keep it in/be decent about it so as to not smother. >>3716519Speaking of this I really dislike how authors (and MXTX) give too much "yes/no" after the facts e.g. "no this popular ship is not romantic at all" etc. After you finish the work butt out is my philosophy. Too much authorial intrusion after the fact is my pet peeve.
>>3719534Eh, if they're going to be asked that shit in an interview then I feel like its up to them to answer what they personally think. The only time I really have problems with author opinions is when they just throw out random information/facts without prompting, that, or outright say they dislike when fans do (X) or (Y).Regardless of how they see things, the fans will always create fan works that appeal to them anyway, so there's not much point in them trying to set down any kind of canon outside of the main story itself.
Do anyone else go through phases of really intensely liking one specific ship and then circulating thru them?
life giving bump
If anyone knows who this couple is, lemme know please.
>>3720625Would be far easier to guess if you linked the tweet. Google hasn't indexed it yet.
>>3720697>>3720696Cute! CUTE! I want a Wanning shizun, too!!!
>>3720625Google indexed it now, the series title and ship name are all in the Tweet.https://twitter.com/wuyu723250832/status/1531863919983091712>He Yu x Xie Qingcheng>Case File Compendium
>>3720910Surprising result thanks anon! I'm reading BAB right now (modern) so I'm guessing maybe there's xianxia extra chapters that I haven't gotten to yet. I must admit I prefer cultivation setting to modern.
>>3720910SVSSS gets the best meme art
Happy birthday Hua Hua!
I’m lowkey convinced that SVSSS was an AniObi fanfic at some point.
>>3723376Shizunfuckery is a wonderful thing
>>3723379Looking at AO3 it seems like there was a big wave of AniObi in 2020 with strong SVSSS/2ha vibes — lots of “go back in time and fix it” fics, lots of fic where Obi-Wan goes “oh how could anyone love an old man like me” ala Wanning, lots of fic where Anakin talks like fandom Binghe. I haven’t touched this part of SW fandom since the aughts so I have no idea if it’s been like this for a while, or if danmei fandom actually cross-pollinated. Anyway gun guqin made me laugh.
And with apologies for the spoon feeding request, are there any links left for Suika’s 2ha translation?
>>3724494You're going to make me get into SW again... is the new Obi Wan show worth a shit? >>3724531I'd also be interested in this, she had it on Google Docs so it wasn't able to be captured in Web Archive
>>3724602It's not a masterpiece, but if you're in this thread for 2ha/SVSSS shizun-fucking melodrama then it's absolutely worth it for three minutes in the middle of the finale.
