    What do you people think about this brilliant writing:

    "Wang Chao had thrown himself at him. Like an eagle bomb diving downwards while a monkey streaks across to kill, he was like a strong gust of wind that had evolved into a tornado that tore apart the clouds to appear instantaneously at Ma Huajun’s side."

    ok first off its dive bombing desu... second monkeys don't run that fast... and lastly a gust can't evolve cause it ain't a living thing desu..

    aside from that the author just made the word "quickly" into three senteces ..... i give it a meh out of 5 desu~

    Its a work of literary art.

    I'm about 70% assured the author was inspired by the master piece better known as invisible dragon

    Learn from the author you plebeians :blobtriumph:

    I only have two questions.

    What is an 'eagle bomb'?

    'Eagle bomb diving downwards'? WTF?

    I will leave others to pick on the rest.

    My favorite is "while a monkey streaks across to kill" means that while you are doing something remember that" a monkey streaks across to kill," like the change of seasons, very deep indeed.

    He dives to his crotch super duper fast and similar to a monkey he stroked his banana like a hungry beast.

    It's from Romance of Dragons and Snakes a dumb, nationalistic,with mediocre translation, but a fun read.

    If you are be able to overcome bad grammar and overexplanations, you can give it a try.

    i tried to imagine the scenario,my imagination thinking the scenario like this
    -wang chao give a sudden grab to ma huajun (imagined as eagle catching their prey)
    -wang chao is in a heat(imagined as raging monkey)
    - wang chao start ripping ma huajun cloth(imagined as tornado that tore apart the clouds)
    what a BL scenario
