Butterfly Lovers

Liang Shanbo and Zhu Yingtai

Rating: 1/3

Categories: comedy, drama, dub, historical, romance

Zhu Yingtai is a young noblewoman who disguises herself as a man so that she can study academia. While travelling there she meets fellow student Liang Shanbo who she becomes sworn brothers with but quickly ends up falling in love with him. When circumstances force her to return home she reveals her true identity to him and asks him to come get her but can he get there before it’s too late? Has an old Disney movie vibe to it.

Movie

Butterfly lovers is a way better old tragic love story than Romeo and Juliet

Romeo and Juliet is better as a tragedy rather then romance.

For anyone interested in the Butterfly Lovers folktale there is a great (and free) PDF book on JSTOR called Transforming Gender and Emotion: The Butterfly Lovers Story in China and Korea. So far it’s been a really interesting read.

@future-geometries replied to your post “The 2017 Butterfly Lovers isn’t off to a great start for me. Instead…”

@triumphend​ SHE LOVES THE BOOKS LET HER LOVE THE BOOKS

PLEASE I WISH. There’s been so little classroom time, and so much out-of-class petty drama. Like between bros, fighting about the girls they’re trying to woo, because they’ve been running a scheme with the love letters they’re sending.

I wish I could make that up.

I’m almost done with ep 4. There’s only been one actually clever classroom scene so far. At this point, I’m watching because I really love the story and I’m hoping this adaptation gets better.

The 2017 Butterfly Lovers isn’t off to a great start for me. Instead of convincing her father to let her go off to study at the Academy by presenting as a man, Yingtai snuck out at night in order to confront (and study with) her betrothed. (She is still serious enough about learning that her tutor’s like, she never doesn’t show up; she must have run away to the Academy. Everyone’s pissed though)

Our foremothers of woman scholars sigh.

I’m trying to find an adaption of The Butterfly Lovers to watch

(I grew up on the 1963 film opera. think kinda Twelfth Night, but ultimately Romeo & Juliet, because we’re Chinese, so of course v v dramatically tragic)

and the funniest thing I’ve found is, on the 2017 show’s MyDramaList page, someone in the reviews being mad that the show description isn’t upfront about it being a “TRAGEDY!!”

it’s a legend from (at least) the late Tang Dynasty, so it’s been around since the 10th century CE at the latest. it’s one of China’s Four Great Folktales. and you’re making a fuss about having wasted your time because you didn’t know it’d be sad 😂

like imagine watching Romeo & Juliet and being surprised at the ending

"metamorphosis" (化蝶)

“metamorphosis” (化蝶)

this is a somewhat translation, or as I prefer, a feeble interpretation of Denise Ho’s song, 化蝶. i did not follow the chinese lyrics word by word, occasionally i interpret my own images from the original lyrics. “metamorphosis” let me unearth the fertile soil let tears nourish the phantom petals are you tangled with the roots searching for decayed silence beneath how then will we perchance wander…

So it seems like Harry Hart likes butterflies...

I need Butterfly Lovers fic. Preferably with less love-suicide tho.

Important fic-writing dilemmas

Me: Okay but do u think ppl will kill me for tagging this as fix-it and then wading into 10,000 words of tears? /squint
Me: i mean, 20,000 words if you count the prequels I guess.
Me: it is a fix-it, though. Eventually.
Me: … Oh well.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Writing update

I no longer wish to kill Certain Persons even deader than they already are, so I’m calling it progress. All table flipping has been tentatively put on hold.

On the other hand this fic is already over 6000 words, which makes the series as a whole almost 18K and counting. Sigh. orz

Butterfly Lovers. Yes, I found this concerto last year because of a rabbit hole that started with Sherlock. Doesn’t make it any less worthy of my relaxing playlist.
