Here is Chapter 10: Her of my Three Lives, Three Worlds, Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms AU Fanfic.
One thing to note: while going through the previous chapters, I realized the story’s time line did not match up at all with what happened in the drama. Honestly, it just wasn’t on my radar while writing the previous chapters. Since, even if the two spend 3 months in the mortal realm, that equates to maybe 6 hours in the Immortal realm, I had to go back and tweak the story a little bit; my obsessive personality just wouldn’t let it go. So, in this chapter, we get a hint of what these two have been doing in those three months in addition to the domestic life they’ve been living at Mt. Junji.
One of the crucial paragraphs now covering this in Chapter 8 now reads:
The two of them had spent the past few months together, falling into an easy rhythm of domesticity that had surprised her. They’d gone back and forth between both the mortal and immortal realms, spending time together in leisure activities. Most days, after awakening in the morning, Ye Hua would prepare breakfast with Bai Qian’s reluctant assistance. The two would then spend the rest of the morning together, taking a walk, discussing favorite subjects, before returning to the hut. Ye Hua then did his work, and Bai Qian read her novels at the table near him. The afternoon came and with it, food preparation, continued reading, and then dinner before a nightly stroll and then bed. Most days, it was the same routine. But on other days, Ye Hua would pull the Goddess away for trips to the immortal realms.
Why was it that she didn’t find any of it boring? Even as she had spent a large part of her youth traveling with Fourth Brother, doing the same things that she did with Ye Hua now? Was it because she was with him?
And in Chapter 9 from Bai Qian’s point of view, as she is running away from Ye Hua:
The past few months with Ye Hua at Mt. Junji had been like a fantasy that she was fulfilling for the mortal she used to be. She’d felt that mortal rejoicing inside of her when Ye Hua cooked for her or walked with her. When he sought out her company, dragged her to other places, or cared for her in some small way. At times, she became weak, secretly reveling in the fulfillment of the dreams that the mortal had dreamt.
I felt that this absolutely needed to be in there to make the story’s timeline match the drama. Apologies for any confusion! As you can see, this is why I’m a fanfic writer and don’t do this professionally. 😛
Overall, this became a difficult chapter to write because of the above, and I’m still not completely satisfied with it, but it’s up now. 🙂
Hope you like the chapter! Don’t forget to leave a comment if you did.
