    Those permutations sound like retelling of some chess match. Treave to A5 for checkmate?

    Well, at least I didn't have anything to do with this mess. Finally found in the discuss what you guys are actually voting for. Oh boy. Are those the only choices?

    D > C

    edit:

    Make that just D. Romance and RPGs don't mix well.

    The one where we strip naked and run to tongue kiss the abbott was edited out, very unfair if you ask me.

    Good Ending

    You take a deep breath, stepping forward as earnestness suffuses every inch of your being. Looking at Yunzi straight in the eye, you block out all else, consigning every other person in this room into irrelevance. Then, you begin your heartfelt speech…

    “We have much to talk about and solve between us, but first I want us to complete this together. We're better fighting together than alone. Remember that night against Changfeng? And the fight with the toad demon? The heavens themselves cannot keep us apart it seems. Whatever we do, we always end up together. Now, let's finish this gauntlet as we started it. A pair. Do you trust me? Remember, I did jump off my horse for you. Qilin and Cao'er might refer to you as "third", but you were the one I first proposed to, even if I did not know it at the time. Long ago, I promised you the moon and the stars for your love. I'm still coming up short, but here's a spark to start. Get up Holy Maiden, this race isn't over yet. Either I kiss you, or we find a toad demon. And THEN I kiss you. Because I'm not going to leave you. Not again. Though, in truth, I never did. You've always been with me. In my mind...and in my heart."

    You draw out the wolf’s fang amulet, raising up high and allowing it to dangle from your fingers. It wobbles in the musty air of the silent pagoda, a symbol of love that only the two of you would understand.

    “Now if you still want to kill me I understand. My life's in your hands... But I think the Abbot would be terribly disappointed... if I kiss the Abbot right now, will he explode? I'd love to find out, but I need your help, because I'm not sure if he's willing. I need you, I need you to help us do this together. I’ve always needed you all these years. I'd have no one else here but you, Yunzi, now let's go kick some ass!"

    Yunzi’s eyes are wide in astonishment. She does not say a word. Maybe she is too taken by the grandiose affection of your declaration. You open your mouth again, to elicit a response, but before the next words have left your throat, she makes a sound.

    She snickers.

    Then, the entire room bursts into laughter.

    Everyone is laughing at you. The monks. Qilin. Even Cao’er. Even Guo Fu.

    Perhaps it would not have been so bad had you not meant every single word you said.

    Your sensitive heart breaks. For once in your life you exposed your raw emotions, bared it out for the world to see, but the moment you do so it ends up being cruelly trampled into the dusty floor like nothing more than dirt. Tears streaming from your eyes, you leap out of the pagoda window, using your qinggong to flee from the site of your humiliation.

    Day turns to night, and you lose all count of time before you finally stop, exhausted of breath and of tears. How could they? How could they!?

    Your broken heart cannot be mended. You contemplate ending your life. A single thrust to the heart with the Yuchang Sword would do it. You would not even leave a single word of death poetry behind. Gingerly, your fingers trembling, you pull out the valuable blade. It shall soak itself with your heartsblood, binding yet another legend to its name.

    You point the tip of the sword at your chest.

    All it would take is a single push.

    “What is wrong now, my stupid disciple?”

    You drop the sword in surprise, looking upwards. Then, you rub your teary eyes in disbelief.

    Master Zhang is standing on top of a tree, silhouetted in the silvery moonlight. The wind tosses his long, unkempt hair about even as it scatters the pale petals of the nearby plum blossoms in a mesmerizing dance.

    “M-master…”

    You tell him everything you have been through. All of the pain and misunderstanding. All of the suffering.

    Zhang Jue lets out a barking, gruff laugh. “Do not be a fool, Xu Jing. Even if the world rejects you, I will not.” Stretching out his hand, he says, “The earth is vast and there are always things to see… and things to fight. Come, dear disciple. Our journey is not yet over.”

    A warmth in your chest and a blush on your cheeks, you reach out for his hand.


    -ZHANG JUE END-

    Gentlemen, it's moments like this why we go full retard. When one door closes, a window opens. We have all thought of Yunzi, Qilin and Cao'er as a poor substitute for the love that we really wanted.

    I hope this is real. Please be real.

    It doesn't matter what treave writes after this, in my mind, this is canon. The feelings we expressed for Yunzi were actually our true emotions that we felt for Zhang Jue. We must embrace this.

    Yunzi is a massive bitch - confirmed. How can we trust any of our friends knowing they'd laugh at our beyond full-retard emotional engagement speech?
