    Summary

    Wendy leaves the city trying to escape from her demons and in search for her next big story. While spending countless hours, nose deep in old magazine cut-outs, she found a small article about a town, in the far North, where people began to disappear, only to come back in a few days, dazzled, pale and hungry. No other injury than a bruise on the neck--for every single person. The article questions whether it’s a serial killer or a cult--and Wendy wonders if it’s simple like that.

    如今行人在谷中仍过往频频。
    透过王宫那闪着红光的窗户他们看见黑影纷纷,
    合着嘈杂之音疯狂地舞动,呻吟。

    他们狂笑着,笑得是那样可怕,阴沉。

    Summary

    Been rewatching Buffy the Vampire Slayer, S1-S3 at the moment, and have just completed the first five episodes of Season 3. What I've become struck by this go around, which I didn't really notice before, no idea why - is the deft critique of romantic love and in particular the gothic romance trope, with all of its horrific consequences. Joss Whedon and his writing team are deft satirists of the horror and in particular gothic horror/gothic romance tradition. Not surprising, considering the name of the series is Buffy the Vampire Slayer - that alone, just screams satire.

    Summary

    Scene setting: Its the beginning of Year Zero and the world is in flames. While the Clergy celebrates the rise of Satan away from Headquarters, Dew disconnects to a remote location and an existential crisis ensues. He's pondering his life's work, brooding with disinterest when a new intrigue presents itself in the form of a woman.

    Summary

    “You better behave tonight,” Jiang Cheng spoke up, poking a hole into Wei Wuxian’s thoughts. “Just because we’ll be in disguise does not mean your actions won’t have consequences. If I hear of any mischief, I will know exactly who to blame.”

    Wei Wuxian laughed again. “Well, that’s not fair,” he replied, “Is that not the whole purpose of a masquerade? To let ourselves be unrestrained, just for one night, with no strings attached?”

    (In which the Jin family hosts a masquerade.)
