“Master Jin. Welcome back.” The voices of the magma nymphs were respectful and excited at the sight of the young man in red, his face covered with a black mask engraved in delicate flowers and vines. He flew into the entrance of the grand cave, a place that had been his mother’s home a long, long time ago.

Yue Kingdom – Earth
The little hut in the bamboo forest was nestled in a waving sea of green. Lin Yu listened to the rustle of the leaves as the winds danced among the green stalks.
She looked at the roof of the little hut with a frown. Her head hurt outrageously, and just before she woke, she had saw someone in her dreams. He stood proud and tall, haughty with a glint of laughter in his eyes. Huang Wu was always seemed so high and mighty and she couldn’t resist trying to take a bite out of him to bring him down a peg or twelve. But in her dreams, Huang Wu’s eyes were strange, they looked at her with a light that made her heart quicken. But that the same time, it was a look that made her want to cry and grab a hold of his hand.
Just when she had reached out to him, he took a step back and faded into the darkness.
In the dark night, the flicker of starlight were the only way that lead home.
She was was dressed in the silks made from the silkworms of the moon, incomparable material that flowed and moved without the wind, adding gossamer lightness to her alabaster skin. Yu Zhu paused in mid air as she looked down at the peaceful world. Her dark, long hair flowed behind her, a black waterfall cascading in rhythmic motion of the wind.

Yue Kingdom Mortal Realms
In the vast expanse of green grass that boiled and seethed, a tiny dot of brown moved faster and faster. The horse’s mouth foamed as it snorted, its flanks covered in thick droplets of sweat.
On the horse was a man in silver and white robes, the clung to his powerful frame in the howling winds. He and the horse thundered through the long weaves of green, leaving holes of black earth in their path. Black blood oozed the youth’s shoulder, the poison spreading like a savage army towards his heart.

Hi hi! Thanks for your patience guys! I’ve been fighting jet lag and work’s been a bit busy. That being said, I meant to publish this chapter last week but then just kept writing, so it kind of became 2 chapters in one. Thank you guys for being such amazing readers!
Thank you Ms. Koala for sharing this wonderful video on your site.

This song is only get better with each listen and since the singer also plays the character, it’s absolutely perfect. I’m preparing myself for the show, and yes, I will be recapping it. Also – link to the Da Mo Yao novel translations are below, from Ms. Koala’s Play Ground. But here’s the song translation:
The midnight thief was said to only appear at the darkest hour of the night. But tonight Yu Zhu needed her activities to be timed perfectly if her plan was to work. She was going to pull of the most daring of stunts tonight as the Midnight Theif.
Yu Zhu barely made any sound as she jumped from rooftop to rooftop, her feet lighter than butterfly wings grazing windblown leaves. Her dark clothes and mask melted into the midnight, the clouds obscuring her shadow and the wind the sound of her movements. She hid behind the gargantuan stone lion on top of the merchant’s roof.
So yah. Hi. I’m the little sister of this blogger person *^* I don’t really know much about this blog except that it’s for Chinese dramas and she basically summarizes them?? idek.
Anyways I’m not into these dramas but I do love ANIME.
Favorites include Ouran High School Host Club, (because instead of the nerdy girl with hot guys cliche plot, it’s about this girl who is not extraordinary in any way surrounded by a bunch of rich attractive guys and she kinda hates/loves them it’s hecka funny) Then go watch Attack on Titan because it’s violent and gory and amazing and has guns and swords and zip line thingys. Oh mah gawd it’s incredible. Oh and if any of you guys believe anime is for children I highly suggest this anime. I was planning to go into detail about plenty more but her phone is running out of battery so I might just list some more.
~Sword Art Online: not an original concept but a decent anime
~Soul Eater: Death the Kid is beyond perfect. Also people turn into weapons and insanity is inevitable
~Death Note: the character L? That’s my spirit animal
~Inu Yasha : Old but Gold
~Hataraku Maou-sama!: the devil works at Mcdonalds
sister has 3% battery left ._. so unfortunately for me I have to stop. Of course I’ve only listed around 1/20th of my mental archive of anime. Just so you know what I sad life I have. Possibility of stealing sister’s phone again is low, so bye now see you probably never.
I’m usually a pretty private person, but I think this was one of the coolest things I got to do because of my job this year. I work in the video gaming industry, and while I haven’t been doing it for very long, I went to my very first E3 today. More pictures below. Continue reading “My E3 Video Gaming Conference Adventure”
A beautiful woman stood on the edge of a light green lake, surrounded by tall mountains and windblown pines. She tossed silk threads into the air, her green robes whipping around her by the strong winds. The green threads writhed and turned, splitting into millions of strands, each attaching to a blade of grass, renewing the color of the entire field and beyond. Blue-green threads colored the lake while thousands of different color strands sank into the air and ground.
Mei Yan smiled as the last of the silk was sewn into the sky. The Jade Rabbit appeared, “Is this the last of it? We’ve been here for nearly a year” The other girl nodded, and the the Jade Rabbit sighed, “Go be with your human, cherish the last day you have with him. And keep your promise.” Mei Yan came over and hugged the other girl. With a flash she was gone.
A jade green snake glid quietly along the banks of a sleepy creek, silently targeting a brown little rabbit that was too busy eating grass to notice. The little jade snake coiled and sprang only to to have the rabbit turn around and aim a kick at it. The little snake narrowly avoided the rabbit’s powerful kick, turned around and glared at it balefully before trying to slither away. The rabbit shook its head.
