I'm so glad that Alec Su and Zhao Wei didn't join the HZGG part 3 and the New HZGG, with that kind of terrible script. That was a smart move, because their version of Yong Qi and Xiao Yen Zi is still intact, a perfect couple for us fans to hold on to. At least with the new actor and actress, I can totally differentiate and tell myself, "they are not the same people".

Yeah as much as I’ve made peace with HZGG3 and the fact that I don’t really imagine actors anymore when writing fics, admittedly it would probably have been impossible to watch HZGG3 with the original actors.

I admire you so much, you are so talented, I'm in awe. Why don't you have an "about me" kind of section? Anw, so happy to know that there are still lots of people who love and remember the original Huan Zhu Ge Ge

Thank you so much

I’ve thought before about having an ‘about me’ page but then most of the time I’m like ‘what do I put in it’? Generally I’m a lazy sod so I guess I never got around to writing it. Maybe one day when I’m procrastinating on a fic I’ll whip one up :P

I don’t want normal, and easy, and simple. I want… I want painful, difficult, devastating, life-changing, passionate, extraordinary …love.

Sorry, Huang Ah Ma, they can’t be your babies forever. [x]

Plot aside, I can't help but to shake my head at Xiang guiren's stupidity. Maybe this is from one too many years of living with roommates, but purposefully antagonizing people that you're living in relatively close proximity with doesn't seem like the smartest thing to do in the long run...

This time she’s not just trying to be stupid and rubbing it in though….

But that aside, I am purposefully writing her to be very vapid and stupid, which actually makes her fun to write :D 

Things I do while writing:

It starts out with double checking the (English) difference/definition of congee and porridge, which means the same thing to me, and then the next thing I know I’ve spent half an hour reading Wikipedia articles and copious other information that I’ll probably never need.

How is it your birthday already?

苏导, happy birthday

This above is Xiao Yan Zi, but also me.

There are so many things I can say, but it’s as simple as this: with all my heart wishing you all the happiness in the world, every day. May all go well with your first endeavour as director. ♥ always.

hzgg + name meanings

[Zhao Wei talks about how wine from her vineyard in France is branded with a label with five 小燕子 on it]

This is really cute, just the way she was talking about it.

I wonder if that number five is entirely random…

thespectrumcafe replied to your post “Sometimes I’m annoyed at myself at how arbitrarily I put spaces…”

actually your system is fairly spot on. There’s a guide on writing in pinyin, but i swear it really boils down to “if the two characters sound like they should appear together, then no space between the pinyin”.

Sounds helpful…not. I probably looked this stuff up once but then decided to screw it.

I do have vague patterns, then I break it when I feel like it. If you go by the way I lump Jiejie and Meimei together, then really 格格 should be Gege as well, but that just looks weird to me so I split it.

Sometimes I’m annoyed at myself at how arbitrarily I put spaces between Chinese proper nouns and nouns when writing fanfic.

So if you ever notice it, I am well aware that I do it really randomly and there is no real system other than the fact that some words appear a certain way in my head.
