Oh, It's not you. This series is so sad LOL actually sometimes the chapters aren't even sad but just reading the name "Gong Hua" is enough to make me want to cry DX This is definitely one of Yu Wo's darker series.
The whole thing with the tree dying to him being abandoned was already tragic enough, yet that's only the beginning and just even more tragic things keep happening! I also feel bad for Cas, his life is pretty tragic too. Basically the whole thing is totally completely tragic and I'm always on the verge of crying whenever, I read this..
Why do you think Gong Hua survived even though it is said that the guardian flowers of the spirit tree dies when the spirit tree dies? For, this I want to speculate on the fact that Gong Hua is a black flower. Could it have something to do with that?
I think usually in Chinese operas the actors who paint their faces black are usually the honest good guys who fight for justice. However, I don't think Chinese people like the color black very much and also that it could be associated with evil and dark powers. (If anyone wants to explain to me the meaning of the color black in Chinese culture to me, please do since I'm not too sure. Or I'll just ask my parents sometime.) Anyways, that's two completely contradicting statements right? But, I feel like it completely matches and describes Gong Hua! I just realized I don't know where I'm going with this.. but it really bothers me that he's a black flower and I just feel like it's very important. Like that one time when they were at the market and the black flower hair pin that Gong Hua saw was regarded as a faulty product.Personally, I think it's the opposite and like I think Mila had said something along the lines of you just have to take a closer look to see it's true beauty. So, in the end, I don't really have any ideas for an answer to the question I posed.. but I do hope that our flower will grow forward and flourish rather than growing backwards.
seppawku: figured i'd poke my head into the forums and see if anyone was interested
