    If anyone's in the mood for some bittersweet reading, I'm translating a Chinese fan fiction on my blog. Two chapters up so far and it had me sniffling at the end (hopefully I'll be able to do it justice and convey some of those feels.)

    (Lan Xichen’s point of view): Just how did Lan Wangji get through all those sixteen years? Lan Xichen, who can read his younger brother like a book, reveals all.

    Lan Wangji: I’ve already prepared everything, why haven’t you returned?

    Rewatching Untamed on Netflix, saw quite a few details about the actors themselves, and the storyline that I missed the first couple of hundred times I saw on weTV :D:D:D Now seen only till episode 7 or so yet. Some of my thoughts and drabbles:

    1. I was probably the only idiot who missed that the guy in the black clothes hiding and carrying a fan in episode one, the one who gave the gold nugget to the storyteller was young Nie bro.

    2. Wei Ying's eyes in the first four episodes are so red. It was more pronounced in the episode where he had the cute little sword fight with Lan Zhan on the roof top. Xiao Zhan was already suffering from eye infection, due to overexposure during The Wolf shooting. On top of that he had to wear contacts, I can imagine how painful that must be to wear them over twelve hour shifts.

    3. Just needed to admire the clarity of the picture in HD. The images are so clear that one could count the eyelashes, see the foundation and lipstick smudges (Jiang Cheng's for some reason), and even little pores on their faces. As much as I like males with make-up, some of it felt a bit too pronounced.

    4. Someone here mentioned Wei Ying moves about a lot when he was trying to be a teenager. I think I get it now, but at the same time I can appreciate Xiao Zhan trying his best; his character was the most complex that needed to show all shades of light, darkness, loneliness, empathy and finally rebirth. To get a clear separation between them all, he tried to be the most carefree version of himself the first few episodes.

    5. Lan Zhan was clearly in love/ had a crush on Wei Ying starting from episode 3. When Wei Ying took a step forward to thank him, Lan Zhan took a step back. That was so cute!!!!! Lan Zhan was so shy! This is one aspect I will always love more than the book, that Lan Zhan was way more romantic than canon, his eyes were always following Wei Ying! In the book, I really didn't get exactly when Lan Zhan fell in love with Wei Ying.

    Apart from that, loved Xiao Zhan's performance at Bazaar Night today. His 'Satisfaction' song was a gift from him to his fans, at the one year anniversary of the MV release. I love it how he his transforming is image from the cutesy kiddo to a very mature actor and singer. His stage presence was so confident, and he was got his beautiful red sea from his fans!

    He is probably the only guy I've seen who can rock those glasses!! And he looked amazing in the St. Laurent outfit! Gave me strong ShenWei vibes :) Looking forward to 'Our Song' tomorrow.

    you are still talking human..

    did you see the pics of the car XZ used?
    it is height of coincidence..

    because license plate reads BD97XZ85 (something like that.. which is Bo Di, Xia Zhan.. and exact bday of yibo 5 aug 1997) :p

    Posted there!!! Thanks for the link :) The forum there looks so silent, my Twitter feed is blowing up with MXTS content now.

    There was another video where they showed the opening theme plus had two dancers in cosplay. It was beautiful!!

    I guess there's not many tgcf fans staying on the forum haha. I saw that one too! I was shaking the whole time from excitement. Everything is beautiful! Can't believe is finally here.

    Also I'm glad it has a 2d animation like mdzs. I don't know how I would have reacted if they showed another 3d :blob_teary:

    Autumn of 2020 most likely for the animation, no dates yet. Absolutely now news of the drama, but the IP has been bought by the same company who did '10 miles of peach blossom' one of the most famous TV shows ever, so we are hoping for a good cast and storytelling.

    oh! corporates are scary..
    i thought tencent bought it

    Untamed became what it did because the heart of makers was in the right place and it wasn't as much about churning money

    i am scared!

    I know right, all this in motion was SO WELL done! :aww::aww:
    I love all that action and how Wei Ying eyes turn from normal to red when he was playing his Chen Qing :blobnosebleed: and that last part where he grabbed the forehead ribbon and Lan Zhan's smile when he walked away was :aww::aww::blobicecreamlove::blobicecreamlove: :bloblove::bloblove: I love the whole thing. I can just watch that video over and over again!!! :aww::aww:

    I got the 20 something cm one since the 30 cm one will be too big and I don't have any room in my room for it XD are you getting the Emperor smile as well?

    She had so much more presence than the book. They even let her be the first to control the undead with the flute which I don't remember reading in the novel.

    but then you can argue the whole yin angle..
    they had to change that story.. and given the fact that there is no more the concept of "founder of demonic arts".. WQ, XY... or wen clan's previous knowledge of controlling the metal is fine!

    i think drama was more about WX being untamed.. the carefree.. the one breaking the mould.. than being the genius who found a line of study on his own
    even the metal is supposed to incite revenge and negative feeling in drama.. so WQ fits in
