Siege in Fog Chapter 10.2

Welcome back to part 2! 🎊 Thanks for your thoughts and comments every week which are greatly appreciated whatever time they come in 😘. We’ll be back to two updates weekly starting next Wednesday.

Last week, political unrest started again due to the “accidental” killing of a student which seems to be a trap for Yi Liankai. Pan Jianchi was allegedly badly hurt whilst policing the protests. Qin Sang pulls ‘wife rank’, so to speak 😁. Hmm, is that why we get our first look at the lady in the portrait?

Siege in Fog Chapter 10.1

Just a reminder that part 2 will be posted next Wednesday.😊

This story has tons of idioms and this chapter is no exception, especially a wonderful animal-related one meant to insult Yi Liankai 😁. Do you have a favourite animal-related (or anything else) idiom? If you do, do share it with us any time in the comments! If it’s in your country’s language, it would be great if you could briefly explain its meaning in English. Or if there are any idioms that you like from this story, let us know which ones! 💞

On to part 1 of a new chapter! Things are getting a bit hot politically which means more work for Yi Liankai 😂.

Siege in Fog Chapter 9.3

Short announcement: I need to slow down the pace somewhat so the next two updates will be posted once a week on 👯Wednesdays. It’s a temporary change and we should be able to resume updates twice a week after that. 🙂

Ah ha ha! Here’s another picture of Murong Feng where he actually looks like himself 😆.

Here’s a recap of events so far: Liankai has been avoiding Murong Feng for reasons that will become clear today. Qin Sang has been accompanying Murong Feng to view the plum blossoms but then there’s a disturbance…

Siege in Fog Chapter 9.2

Today’s picture is my favourite so far 😂! Although it’s odd that he doesn’t look like that at all — it’s just that particular shot at that particular angle.

🎉In honour of this ✨‘special guest’✨ character, we have a longer chapter today! 🎉
Fans of Too Late To Say I Love You: presenting 六少 (Liu Shao), at your service! 😁

Siege in Fog Chapter 9.1

Ehhh, today’s chapter is relatively short but the next one will be much longer so please hold those brickbats! 😜

In Ch. 8.3, Jiangnan is mentioned as the novel’s locale. 江南 Jiāngnán [literally] south of the River — a region in the lower Changjiang (Yangtze) valley, including southern Jiangsu and Anhui and northern Zhejiang (much celebrated in poetry for its beauties and joys) [Source: Pleco] which I think explains why the author spends time describing certain scenes, as she does in today’s instalment. It sounds like the inspiration for this place is the West Lake in Hangzhou? I’m sure the drama will deviate a fair bit from the novel but going by the stills alone, they seemed to have spared no expense to recreate the look of many places in the novel! If nothing else, the sets will be something to look forward to!

Apologies 🙇! This instalment needed some work!

More interesting developments! I really enjoy some of the characters’ lines that encapsulate their convictions.

Qin Sang makes her stand clear…

Siege in Fog Chapter 8.1

🐣 Sorry for the wait, readers in my time zone!

I’m quite in awe of how much foreshadowing the author manages to hide in her work. When I read chapters again to check them, lines that seemed ordinary before suddenly take on significance when reread. 😯

Yi Liankai shows another side to his character… Am I the only who wants to try this mead they keep drinking?! 😂

Siege in Fog Chapter 7.3

Aaah, one of the things I really enjoy about this story is what comes to light at certain times in surprising ways.

History, both personal and on a grander scale, looms large…

P.S. Some of you may have noticed that updates appeared a little w.e.i.r.d last week and this week. If you see a post which says ‘TL: Not for human readers’ consumption’ or it just seems wrong somehow, then it’s not the right post. This will happen for a while yet as we figure out how to cope with t.h.e.f.t so we hope for your patience 🙏! My apologies to those regular readers who were puzzled by the post earlier!
