Watched ep 11 of BBJX and it was a lovely breather in the melancholy and angst. First off, loved that brief moment with Lu Wu and Thirteen when he brought Four over. The intensity in his eyes! Also, the scene with Fourteen in Mongolian disguise was cute cute cute.

Now, on to the main point: Eight/Ruoxi bloody finally!!!! I loved the horse-riding scene when he rescued her - the way he stared at her as she rode on his lap (ok, sadly that sounds much dirtier than t was :p) mmmmmmm and then literally laughing in joy when he realizes she likes him back. Then the scene in his tent when he is wounded and they hold hands and she hugs him back and chemistry aaaaaaaa! I did giggle when she looked away when he was quasi-shirtless while being treated. Damn, girl, you are not really a Manchu noblewoman, why so shy? I'd be ogling that chest for all I was worth and then tackling him down on that couch for some sexual healing. You are a 21st-century girl, come on, for the sake of all fangirls everywhere you have to do it!!!!

I really do think she is too cautious to commit to someone whose future she knows is no good and who has a bunch of complicated interpersonal relationships already. To compare it with JPLH, she is an observer, not a doer like Qing Chuan was. Hence is the tragedy, observer or not, she can't help but be drawn in.

I am not sure I will have caps from now on btw - I download almost 1gb-sized hard subs already so to also download almost 2-gb raws is kinda insane, OTOH, the Eight/Ruoxi stuff begs to be capped. Dilemmas!!!

In other drama news, I finally started watching Fight and Love with the Teraccotta Warrior properly - viki has it subbed. I am four eps in and I like it but not as much as I thought I would based on the premise (Qin general and royal Concubine relive their doomed love through centuries). I think it's because while I love both Du Chun and Ady An, they have better chemistry with other costars. It's still fun though.

I got to say, I am pretty much rolling in cdramas/hkdramas right now - I am watching BBJX, Terracotta Warrior, Relics of an Emissary, Last One Standing and Four Women Conflict and Vigilantes in Masks. I don't think I will be slowing down much either because the drama that comes after the drama after BBJX is the insane cdrama-goes-lakorn "Sealed with a Kiss" with Hawick Lau and then QSHF, the Ruby/Wallace/YanKuan miseryfest which I am dying for. And the Royal Harem is bound to air soon, plus there is Ruyi and Mystery in the Palace, and Legend of the Tiger Amulet and a bunch of others.

Viki started subbing Fight and Love with a Terracotta Warrior - i.e. the drama I was so interested in, I watch a dozen eps raw.

I will emerge later. Much later.

I was clicking around my Terracotta Warrior eps to see they dled correctly, and guess what I found in ep 11.



If you guessed "Mousie's new fictional boyfriend", then you guessed correctly. Any gentleman who rescues the heroine from death twice within ten minutes of running time, fighting garroters, facing down evil eunuchs and stopping public executions, is definitely to Mousie's taste. The armor, cape, and hairstyle are pleasing additions.



Rescue meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, oh hunky warrior! )

Honestly, Qin Emperor, I know it sucks that your mystic crush object and your chief boycrush general betrayed you with their luuurve, but you brought it on yourself - either get yourself generals that are less hunky and less competent, do something so that your crushbunny won't have to be in constant danger and in need of a rescue, or at least freaking rescue her yourself once in a while. You are an Emperor, you won't have to use your sword even. Maybe that way she'll stick to being happy Mrs Underground Rivers of Mercury and not choose claymation with boyfriend.

Have another MV. This one centers on the 1930s portion of the story. It looks just as angsty as the ancient part :)

Having gotten my hands on some gorgeous quality raws (PM me if you want them), I proceeded to watch the first episode of Fight and Love with a Terracotta Warrior, starring Du Chen and Ady An as a pair of insanely star-crossed lovers - a Qin general and a woman picked by Qin emperor to help him gain immortality who dare to fall for each other. It ends as well as you may expect and the story moves to the 1930s, where the reincarnated Ady (who remembers nothing of her past life) runs into Du Chen again...The final part of the story takes place in modern day. Third time is the charm, one hopes.



There are no subs nor there are likely to be any but I was so desperate for this, I am watching raw. So far I have not found it hard to follow though seeing I am only half an ep in (time to go to bed over here), I have no idea if it will change.



I already like Du Chen and Ady's characters, whoever plays Qin Emperor is amazingly magnetic and scary (is it sick to crush on Qin Emperor? Oh well...) and the visuals are out of this world.

A few unspoilery caps to demonstrate gorgeousness )

Ep 1 is out:



Same user uploaded through ep 10 so far.

No subs yet but I watched ep 1 raw and it's pretty easy to follow if you read detailed synopsis/movie summary (otoh, I find Chinese Iljimae basically impossible to follow without subs which is a huge pity because it looks intense and gorgeous).

My thoughts are that as far as first episodes go this one gets an A++ rating from me. I find cdramas start rather slowly, as well they might, seeing that they usually have 40-50 eps to play with. This first ep holds up better than the first ep of my favorite drama The Myth (which has an OK first ep but nothing to hint at the brilliance to come) and is much better than first eps of LOCH2008 and ROCH2006, two of my huge favorites.

I am never interested in the modern portions of these stories, so I especially liked that after 5 minutes or so, we go back to the start - the Qin Dynasty. We are introduced to all of our major players and some connections are started - more specifically Qin Emperor's obsession with Ady An. As I do not speak Mandarin, I am not 100% sure, but I believe the fixation is not due to her pretty looks but to that amulet she had - probably some relation to his quest for immortality. Our star-crossed lovers Du Chen and Ady An have barely met (if you call knocking out during a swordfight a meeting) but I can't wait to see more of the two of them together. Du Chen - daaaaaaaamn, the guy is hot. It must the Qin hairstyle + the armor + swordfighting + honorable demeanor because I don't find him particularly coronary-inducing in modern getup. But as sexy Qin general - oh, whoa. Ady An is her gorgeous, adorable self. There is not even a tiny hint of angst yet but I know how these things work - they sucker you in with the cute and then -- whaaaaam.

So, a winner.

Looooong trailer:



I have already been scouring both youtube and tudou for raws under its Chinese name. Proof of my insanity - it's likely to be 50 eps and I doubt it's ever getting subbed but I plan to watch the entire thing raw.

Love and Fight with a Terracotta Warrior, that is. Here is a kissing scene from it:



According to the kind AFer, here is what he says to her: Xiao Jing [(this is Ady’s modern character’s name), it doesn’t matter if this is the present or the ancient times, because I believe that time and space will not change true love or make it disappear. Xiao Jing, if I am Meng Tian Fang (Du Chun’s 1st generation character), then I will tell Han Dong Er (Ady’s 1st generation character) that even after 2,000 years, I will still remember you, and I will fall in love with you again.

Mmmmmm. Please someone, sub this drama!

P.S. I am almost back and then I promise to get back to my shamefully backlogged response to comments as well as delayed end-of-year drama lists (best, worst, and Mousie awards for such important categories as best kiss :P)
