PLEASE DO NOT REUPLOAD MY VIDEOS. If you see them floating around in youtube or facebook or any other places other than here and AVV please do help me report these channels or try and direct them here. That will be much appreciated. It will give me more motivation to work and hence faster subs because instead of sitting around trying to calm down from the frustration and stop ranting about people stealing my work I can focus on the important stuff. Thank you!
Synopsis: 1000 years ago, the God of war and the Star of Mosha fought against each other during a bitter battle that almost upturned the way of the world. However at the end of it, both had disappeared mysteriously. 1000 years later, their reincarnations are born into the mortal realm. Chu Xuanji was born into the world lacking the ability to understand or receiving information from the 6 senses leaving her clueless to the world and inept. She befriends Yu Sifeng, the most skilled disciple from the Lize palace who falls in love with her despite the consequences that would occur if he falls in love with a woman. Meanwhile, the demonic realm are preparing themselves to revive the star of Mosha in order to overthrow the Heavenly realm once more and soon the events of the past catches up to them….
- Half a quarter: It is approximately 7 minutes and 12 seconds in today’s time. This arose due to the fact in the past the Chinese used a water clock or clepsydra to calculate the time. It took a whole day and night to empty which is 12 chinese (double) hours and because there were 100 indicator quarter rod in this time piece, when one of these rods indicating a quarter of an hour (or half a double hour) were released as the pressure from the water flowing from tank to tank so a quarter is approximately 14 minutes 24 seconds. Later in the Qing dynasty, they used 96 rods and so a quarter adjusted to 15 minutes and that has been the standard ever since, this also matches up with the western quarter of an hour.
- Abandoned palace/ cold palace: Just a place where the consorts and their children that had either committed a crime, their family had committed a crime or had fallen out of the favor of the Emperor was sent to.
- Li energy /evil aura: This topic will come up time and time again throughout the drama and the reason why the God of war was cast to the mortal realm to undergo the 10 tribulations. It’s a difficult concept to explain but you can think of it as the bad aura that is produced when there’s a lot of hatred and resentment within a person. And if you’re a cultivator or deity or powerful like Xuanji that aura becomes very overpowering
- Soulmate/confident: Not sure how close they are because it’s a very short clip but 知己 means someone who is like your kindred spirit/ other half of your soul/mind. Can be platonic or something more.
NB: This is the mirror episode so prepare yourselves for the anguish
