Bu Lian Xiang

Will Bu Lian Xiang end up staying with MC?
Will she live as long as MC?
It's seem like her story with MC is a tragedy.

    No, her journey stops at the Nine Worlds, she'll send off MC when he ascends to the Tenth World besides shes carrying his child.
    She probably won't live as long as other cultivators. She took the best underworld boat but it'll only give her around 500-1000 years extra lifespan.
    As Li Qiye always say, the Grand Dao is a lonely and brutal path. Many do not have the unwavering determination and perseverance to walk that path to the end. Temptation, responsibilities, burdens, doubt all plague them. Goes the same for many of Li Qiye's friends and followers. In fact there are only a handful of people with as firm as a Dao Heart as Li Qiye, Saint Emperor and the Saint Old Man from Distant Wastelands comes to mind.

    In the "grand scheme of things", Bu Lian Xiang is ... technically "an old codger". She's ancient. Ancient enough to be the one of the two living people (at least on Li Qi Ye's side, other than Magu / Little Silly, unless I got it wrong) that has seen Li Qi Ye as the Dark Crow, and Li Qi Ye as Li Qi Ye reincarnated (that's like bloody long millions of years) .

    Unfortunately, she's the type that... how should I put it... "good wife / wise mother" persona. You may have heard it in these terms:
    In Japan, they're called as "Yamato Nadeshiko".
    In Chinese speaking countries, "Good Wife, Wise Mother". In chinese, its typed as 賢妻良母 / 賢母良妻

    Think of it a bit as the "tsundere Xia QingYue that converted to subservient her in her monologues" or "Chan Yue Chan who converted into that subservient headstrong woman" in ATG. Almost, but not quite (because they don't follow that 'creed' in the fullest sense, but each is a personification of one of the values in that "Good wife / Wise Mother" mould.

    But back to Bu Lian Xiang, she ultimately choose to stay in the current world and not ascend (since she's ran out of her life span, and for good reasons). But think of it like this:

    1. She loved Li Qi Ye. Very possessive too apparently. To the point she endured the loneliness of millions of years. That's almost as bad in solitary confinement in a single holding cell. Day after day. So that she can find the person she loved.
    2. She wanted a child with Li Qi Ye. That alone is a huge sacrifice. She basically, in a sense, 'discarded' the Dao of Cultivation, and will break all 4 taboos; taboo of relationship / ego, taboo of pleasure (pleasure doesn't mean sex here, although it technically is part of pleasure seeking), taboo of consumption, taboo of gambling. Its a huge sacrifice.
    3. In a bittersweet "the glass is half full" / "the destination matters than the journey", she achieved what she wanted; she has a part of Li Qi Ye (which is a huge concession for a figure like Li Qi Ye who has to walk alone with least distractions as possible) in the form of his skinship and baby. That alone would have been the "i've got what i wanted, i've done it" moment for her. Well, she lives for at least 500-1000 years, and with the child, (who'll turn into an old guy by the the time 500-1000 years are up LOL) its more than what she would have asked for. That suffering she went through for millions of years, will end with 500-1000 years of happiness grooming the child.

    So yeah, it can be a tragedy, or it may not.

  • May be he might search for the treasure that gives immortal life to give it to her as most of us believe the novel should end with LQ becoming immortal so his imperial empress should be there with him, right? And she is the only one that he has had any sex with in the whole novel till now.

    No.. she said that she is not going to marry li qiye.. tells him to find an empress who can be with him till the end.

    LQY already had several methods to extend her life, but she declined.

    The thing is LQ is the only person going to the ultimate expedition. Leaving his maids and concubine behind <span>:neutral:</span>

    I don't think that the expidition is a one man thing... He will at least bring along all his generals.. like the allpine treefather and the immortal fate palace girl with the archery girl.. and all his ligions as well, like the brave tiger ligion. So may be if he gets a OP wife like himself, he'll bring her along too..
  • Is the child going to cultivate or are they going to live a mortal life?
