When a Snail Falls in Love SS 9

We end the official WASFIL posts with 2 short stories (found in the print version) featuring Ji Bai & Xu Xu. If you miss reading about their relationship as much as I do, you’ll enjoy these 2 vignettes, SS 9 and SS 10.

There is one more story, SS 8, which features Xu Jun. As we are translating this from the print version, it will take much longer than usual. We’ll be posting SS 8 in parts as a ‘bonus’ feature while the posts for Pristine Darkness are ongoing (you’re joining us for PD, aren’t you?).

When a Snail Falls in Love SS 7 Part 2

To our relief and hers, Yao Meng has finally found someone she can lean on. A happy ending at last for Yao Meng, and no serial killer in sight! Hurrah! I love the quiet moment she shares with Shu Hang, and that she cherishes it because it is so ordinary. Ding Mo owes her for having put her through the wringer with some extraordinary ‘coincidences’, all right! How do you feel about Yao Meng’s ‘ending’?

When a Snail Falls in Love SS 4 Part 2

A little glimpse of the ‘big day’! How many times do you think Ji Bai will kiss Xu Xu passionately? Haha, it’s a frivolous question! While translating this novel, it’s been a challenge to find different ways of saying ‘he pulled her into his arms’, ‘he kissed her’ or ‘he stared into her eyes’ because he does it so frequently. #relationship goals? Looks like they have some new ones, now . . .

When a Snail Falls in Love SS 3 Part 3

A warm welcome to Calculusfanatic, who joins forces with our esteemed editors/ proofreaders, Tranzgeek & Librismuse!

In this final instalment of Feng Ye’s story, we reach the horrific confluence of 4 lives – Feng Ye, Yao Meng, Tan Liang and Lin Qingyan. While we know how it all ends, let’s see what Feng Ye feels and thinks as events hurtle to their conclusion.

I have a question to ponder! In the 1st 2 short stories, Ding Mo details the events in Lin Qingyan’s life that nudged him towards the actions he chose to take. On the other hand, Ding Mo in this short story seems to be portraying Feng Ye as someone who, from the start, was amoral and had psychopathic tendencies. Who do you think is more to be pitied? LQY, who was ‘led’ to make bad choices, or FY, who never had a choice in the beginning?
