Can I just talk about how much I enjoy Murong Qing as a character? She’s a kind girl, but she’s never pretended to be a saint. Murong Qing is a very normal, relatable girl. She’s frank, honest, and not blind to the realities of her world. If she needs to do something to survive, I don’t doubt that she would do it without a second thought.

The pronoun situation in this chapter is a bit chaotic because the grandpa spirit doesn’t have a name, but I’ve tried to make it as clear as possible. Hopefully it’s not too confusing!

Given that it’s my last post before the Mid-Autumn Festival, I want to wish everyone a lovely week! Do go out to enjoy the full moon if you can. Even better if you can spend it with your families drinking tea and eating mooncakes. See you all next week.

I love Liu Mao Shan’s art. I’ve featured his pieces a couple times now because I just really enjoy his craft. He was trained in European impressionism, and even though he later moved towards Chinese landscape painting and ink wash later on, the traces of western influence are still present in his work. He truly adds a unique spin to traditional eastern art, and I encourage who’s interested run a quick search on his pieces. It’s quite interesting seeing the contrast between how he portrays European and Asian landscapes.

Guys, I won’t lie, I’m really not fond of editing at all. It definitely, maybe contributes to chapters being posted late. Here’s hoping this chapter doesn’t have too many typos…

The update schedule may be changing in the coming weeks. My weekdays are going to be less open so I’m thinking about moving to weekend updates instead. I’ll be experimenting with posting schedules, so consider following the blog via email or WP if you haven’t already so you don’t miss out on new chapters! The button is in the sidebar or all the way at the bottom for mobile users.

Hi friends, it’s time for a new arc. The Mid-Autumn Festival is featured in today’s chapter, which is perfect timing because I’ve been eating lots of mooncake recently. This year’s holiday isn’t until September 24th, but my family has a habit of buying them as soon as they hit the shelves every year.

I also added a new tab in the navigation called Bookshelf. It’s a list of some novels I’ve read as well as some brief thoughts on them. Of course, I’d write out whole essays of thoughts on these stories if I had the time, but alas, this is the best I can do at the oment. If you have any books to recommend, let me know because I’m always looking for something new to read 🙂
