A Hundred Thousand Years of Rain [on hiatus]

Description

After a heavy rainfall, humans appreciate the sun that dries the sodden earth and warms the air; after a droughty period, they pray for rain that makes the landscape blossom and the harvest grow. When there is rain, there cannot be drought; when there is drought, there cannot be rain. The sun can only come out when the rain ceases, and the rain can only fall when the sun is covered. To keep balance in heaven and on earth, rain and drought have to move around from place to place, never together, but always separately. The one cannot exist without the other, yet they cannot exist simultaneously. They follow each other in constant yearning, but in the end, they always miss one another and can never unite; the one living in heaven, the other on earth, for eternity: the rain god and the drought goddess.

Even when mountains flatten and riverbeds run dry,

And the earth moves to become one with the sky,

Even when winter has thunder and summer has snow,

Never will my feelings do anything but grow.

- By Heaven! (上邪)

Foreword

This story will continue by the end of this year when I have finished my thesis! 

My side project to "In the Prince's Chamber". This story falls under the genre "xian xia" and revolves around immortals, gods, deities and sprites. It is inspired by Chinese mythology, mainly by the "Battle of Zhuolu", but also loosely by the novels 月都花落,沧海花开 and 香蜜沉沉烬如霜. Thus, some characters in this story are formed after certain deities appearing in Chinese mythology. I will not give away who will portray who, because I don't want to spoil their identities or details of the plot, which is why the description is also rather vague. Please give the first chapters a try to see whether this story suits your taste. 

I chose my favorite c-entertainment celebs as the leads, because I'd love to see them in a project together once! Zheng Shuang is my main this time, because I love her. And she's getting so much hate which she doesn't deserve, so this is my personal support for her!  

Happy reading!
