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.

Have a Four/Ruoxi MV:



I am fangirling Emperor Yongzheng. That's not right.

For those who prefer Ruoxi with Eight (like me, sometimes. I am so undecided):



I am in the middle of ep 6, and Eight's memory of the first time he saw Ruolan and fell in love at first sight with the idea of her - it broke my heart (so much disaster could be avoided if people were able to talk before marriage, honestly). I think he is transferring his feelings to Ruoxi because she makes him think of the way Ruolan was (I am sure that is exascerbated because everyone says how alike Ruolan and Ruoxi look). Oh man, this is a total clusterfuck. I feel beyond dreadful for Eight but Ruoxi deserves to be loved for herself and not for being like someone else unattainable...

Another standout was the scene when Ruoxi went drinking with Thirteen and Lu Wu and they bumped into Fourteen and his loutish followers who were insulting Lu Wu (basically calling her a whore and saying that now they know why she puts on too many airs for a prostitute - because she has Thirteen as one of her clients) and Ruoxi tore into them. And then when Fourteen tried to shame her for being friends with a hooker, she told him that a prostitute can be a virtuous woman too. YESSSS.

Also, I loved loved loved this scene in Relics of an Emissary. Spoiled Princess is kinda awesome - she refused to save herself by ditching wounded Hot Period Cop, and tried to piggy-back him (!!!) and then when he let go of her hand so as to give her more of a chance to escape, she went back and found him down at the bottom of the hill and made a makeshift stretcher and basically refused to give up until they were found. Go, spoiled but awesome princess! I loved even more that Hot Period Cop's way to thank her was to buy her a hidden weapon and teach her self-defense. They are adorable!.

Caps of awesomeness )

To take a break in between watching the subbed trailer of Qi Shi Huang Fei for the eighteenth time, I watched more of the HK period mystery/romp Relics of an Emissary. I am on ep 8 now and totally adore it. It is so rare to find a period drama that is actually light and funny and fun and this one is, even with all the mysterious murders and succession fights going on. It's delightful.



It gives me what I want - scheming, hot guys, sword fights, fun ladies, hurt/comfort even but manages to be so much fun at the same time! I mean, here we have a h/c scene with our resident OTP, i.e. Spoiled Cute Princess/Hot Period Cop and it's actually funny! She has no idea what to do and the bickering over who gets to sew his wound is loltastic (of course she does, and makes comments about how she wishes she paid more attention to her mother's lessons on meedlework). Also, it took 8 eps, but she finally warmed up to him. I guess taking a dagger in the back to protect you will take you a lot with some girls :P I have no idea why I like her, because she's awfully high maintenance and often ditzy, but she is so cute and fun and, underneath it all, does have a backbone of steel and belief in honor (like when they are being chased by assassins and he tells her to leave him because he's wounded and will slow her down and she tells him no way, he saved her life, she has to take him along).

Watching this ep was about as cheerful as putting your hand through a meat-grinder. I guess that is what I get for watching a kdrama which bills itself as an epic tragedy. Out of all the devastation, for some reason it is this scene that got me the most. So close, yet so out of reach.




Spoilery for the ep )

In news of other, more cheerful period dramas, my my my, HK period pieces are very...liberal. I think kdrama censors would faint at this scene from Relics of an Emissary and I didn't even cap the horizontal bits!

I am three eps into Relics of an Emissary and it's such fun!



I spent most of the first ep wanting to massacre the protagonist, who is basically the ancient equivalent of a police captain. He is hated by his subordinates and his targets alike, and his methods of questioning witnesses freak out even the other guards. If he had a conscience, it got lost somewhere a long time, submerged in brutality, ruthlessness, bribe-taking, lechery and other good things. Luckily for us all, at the end of ep 1, there is a big explosion on the boat he is on and, while he is the sole survivor, he loses his memory and somehow acquires an awesome personality. He is still an amazing fighter and good at crime-solving, he is also (probably for the first time in his life) not a bastard. In fact, he is kinda righteous. Someone should have whacked him a long time ago.

Throw in palace coup, a gorgeous eunuch (seriously, such a waste!), a scheming royal or two, a feisty princess with a fondness for cross-dressing and loathing of the hero, and the mystery what exactly happened on that boat, and we are set for a fun fun ride!

Caps from first three eps )

Anyway, great fun!

I believe this is a MV for it, though since my Chinese is nonexistent, I'd like it verified:



RoaE stars Michael Tse, Joe Ma and Kate Tsui. The protagonist is a formerly ruthless Brocade Guard captain who loses his memory but develops a conscience and gets involved in conspiracies involving the throne. There are also awesome female spies! Actually, the heroine is an awesome female spy.

Pics, mainly shippy )

Of course, I am so behind on so many c/hkdramas that I know it's insane to add one, but I can't help it.

Where to get it? YA is selling a subbed DVD at a highly-reasonable price of $19.99 but let me know if you want me to scour for links for you.

In other news, Hu Jun fangirls, did you know he played Xiang Yu in the 2005 drama The Story of the Han and it's available with subs out there (let me know if you want me to PM you the links). I need!!!!
