Nah just thinking aloud xD.
Anyways I have been given answers already from the latest chapter. He is now taking active actions against the Fengyi Sect. I wonder how the prince will/would react to 'Jiang She's actions?
I laughed a bit when I saw this:"Therefore, I tucked my sympathy away in the back of my mind."
The author is cruel to her characters, but she does have a sense of humor.
At least her characters have personality.
And, I really like the smattering of prose, poems and songs hidden within the chapters. goooood job! Translating these lyrical lines must be so mind-churning. BUT, you delivered them well. I can taste the flavor and the words still echoes.
I was wondering what happened to Li Shun's knowledge from being an imperial eunuch and here it appears. It is good to see him use his knowledge from being around Jiang Zhe for such a long time.
Aside from frequent numbering errors (Li Zhi has gone from being Li Yuan's second son to third son to second son to fourth son), the author does keep good track of all of the characters' experiences.
A member mentioned in the commenting section after chapter 8 that perhaps Shaolin would be afraid of Li Shun. I doubt that is the case as seen by their "probing" their are people who can handle him.
I think that they have decided to act as this [siding with the prince] may be the perfect opportunity for them to break free of the shackles of the Fengyi Sect. Remember that they have seen Li Zhi stance with regards to the sect with his actions towards Pei Yun's marriage. I think that they are simple taking advantage of the situation.
Oh @Tannhäuser could you check this line? "Please forgive Zhe for being able to welcome you.” Pehaps it should have been "Please forgive Zhe for not being able to welcome you."
As for Li Shun, it's not that they're afraid of the present Li Shun. What they're afraid of is the future Li Shun. When Li Shun becomes a grandmaster, because of the sinister nature of the martial art that he trains in (Sunflower Manual), he will likely be a sociopathic mass murderer without the restraining influence of Jiang Zhe.
Then isn't prudent to kill him before he grows?
I have thought this since his time on the battlefield but Jiang Zhe is quite sinister. I am liking forward to how the emperor with deal with Li An with regards to the succession. At the end of the day he is still the crown prince and not placing him as the heir will cause dissent between the Fengyi Sect, the supporters of Li An, and the general population if his actions are not revealed. Then again Li Zhi should be quite popular among the people.
Jiang Zhe is the kind of strategist that would leave you sleepless at night, worrying that he'd screw with you as well.
When the poem started with, "Ephemeral bliss..." I was instantly reminded of Mercedes Lackey. The Fengyi sect needs to be reminded that not all issues are to be answered with hard means.
