JJWXC Synopsis:

Phoenixes drifted around the silent mountain ridges with their wings widespread, scattering glittering dust in their wake that spiraled  towards the world.

The vastness of the universe flickered in the stars. Lying on the bamboo raft in Chi Xiaoduo's arms, Xiang Cheng, slowly opened his eyes.

"It's called homesickness." Xiang Cheng said. "If you don't see the world, you wouldn't think of returning."

-

A torrential downpour engulfed the city. The dark clouds in the sky were densely covered by hordes of yaomos running about in the dark night.

Chen Zhen, holding the steering wheel with one hand, thoughtfully said to Chi Xiaoduo, "The living are merely passing travelers, the dead return to their eternal homes. The heavens and the earth are an inn; for all our grief we inevitably return to dust."

-

It's spring once again, the air was filled with a flurry of peach blossoms.

Chi Xiaoduo leaned on Xiang Cheng's chest and looked up at the clear blue sky.

"Frankly," Chi Xiaoduo earnestly said, "it’s not bad to be an exorcist.”

Xiang Cheng gave a genuine smile and said nothing. He held Chi Xiaoduo in his arms, lowered his head, and kissed his hair.

Twin Jades of Jiangdong


Synopsis:
From the boundless expanses of Lake Chao to where it meets the army of the Chi Bi.

From the childhood promise sealed with a knot of hair to the 40-year old lingering dream of home in Jiangdong.

From a singular kite hovering in the sky, to the sound of the qin echoing over a hundred li, across the river lit by the scorching sunset...

East flows the mighty river, sweeping away the heroes of time past...

I dream of Gongjin in his day, with his new bride, the Lord Qiao's younger daughter, dashing and debonair.

Ah, this life is a dream, let me drink to the moon floating in the river...
