So, I am still trying to come up with an appropriate symbol/plant etc. for Yunlan for my four seasons series. During my consideration I came up with this question: Are Chinese zodiacs ever mentioned in the series for any character? For Shen Wei we don't even have a birth date, plus he's alien anyway so it probably wouldn't apply. But Haixing people are modeled so closely on Earth people that it seems strange to me if no mention was made at all.

Can anyone remember if Chinese zodiacs are mentioned, or alluded to for any character?

If not, which Zodiac do you think could be/ would be appropriate for Yunlan? (we could just do the math and take 2018 as the air date, detract Yunlan's canon age and choose the zodiac which results...btw, how old is Yunlan? I checked the wiki on Hubzilla but while there is an excellent entry for Shen Wei already, Yunlan's only has a picture.)

For completeness sake (most of you have seen these posts already I think), I posted:

- a Shen Wei art (Plum Blossoms), Four Seasons part 1
- some Guardian vs. Nirvana in Fire thoughts
- information about the meaning of orchids for my next project in the four seasons series. Some input wold be helpful there, what other spring flowers would be appropriate for Yunlan? I plan to make more posts about Chinese symbolic meanings as I go along and research them for my art pieces.

All the Food and Drink in Guardian

One thing I really enjoy in Guardian is how the show uses food. I adore food in fiction and while food isn’t a focus of Guardian there are lot of food based moments that I love. I’ve been trying to write something about this but mostly I just want to squee. There is some fierce feeding people going on! And some lovely meals as a found family!

So instead of an essay here’s a list of all the meal scenes in the drama. I used [personal profile] galaxysoup’s episode guide and various rewatches posted here in the community as a starting point as well as my own notes/memory. Thanks everyone!

These are listed chronologically as they appear in the drama. I’m not counting all the lollipops -- sorry there’s just too many. I've included notes and questions I have about some of the scenes.

spoilers for all episodes )

I haven't done a project like this in a long time. There are some great character building details here that I enjoyed rewatching. This was fun! I hope people find this useful or at least entertaining. I almost certainly missed things though so feel free to point out anything that I missed and I will edit to include it. Can anyone identify any of the food more precisely? Or have anything to add about cultural details I’m missing? What are your favorite food and drink moments in the drama?

To celebrate our birthday boy, I've posted my personal review of the drama: The story of Ming Lan.

Summary, characters introduction (+ relationship chart), impression, resources and pics.

Happy birthday Zhu Yilong!

Also, I'm aware of what's happened tonight to Notre Dame. I am feeling very sad.

In her post of her favorite Guardian vids, [personal profile] bonibaru mentions

Be careful if you find yourself wandering around bilibili because you might end up falling down a rabbit hole of a/b/o and sentinel AUs that are ... just ... I don't even know but some of them are pretty darn good.

I really want to know more about this! My incompetent searches have revealed things like this:

which seems to be some sort of multi-trope collision involving ABO, Sentinels (??) and possibly His Dark Materials-type daemons.

What is ABO when it's in China? I see from fanlore that it's become super-popular in Asian fandoms, which frankly boggles the mind even more than the mere existence of ABO.

What are Sentinel AUs called in China and Japan? How did they get there?

It's easy to see how daemons could have made it into non-Western fandoms, because there's *movies*. But for Sentinel, as with ABO, I'd suspect direct fandom-to-fandom transmission.

It's finally done! All 30 episodes, cut down to Bai Yu's scenes and his storyline in 0.5 Diors, now complete!

Episodes 16-30. While the whole series carries a general warning for embarrassing situations, you'll want to pay special attention to the warning on Episodes 27-28.

It's the first time posting in this comm though I've been lurking around ^^

In light of Zhu Yilong's upcoming drama - "Lost Tomb Reboot/Restart" - I did a sort of spoiler-free explanation of what this "Lost Tomb" series is and a review (ramblings) of what I've seen so far from the series.

Hope it's helpful ^^ You can find it here

“Trust me,” Zhao Yunlan says.

Shen Wei actually huffs at him, as if he is being so patently ridiculous that fear-tinged fury would be too dignified an answer. “How can I trust you?”

Ye Zun tries a different tactic to defeat his brother, that may tear apart everything Shen Wei and Zhao Yunlan have worked to build between them.
