Okay, those who haven't read the ending may not want to read this post, as it will be spoilery. Don't say I didn't warn you 😛
Just out of curiosity, how did Jade Palace Lock Heart go down? I didn't watch the entire thing and now I'm interested in seeing how things ended as the OTP in that one involved Eight, who of course lost the battle for the throne >_< I'm asking because I can't have imagined history changing for them and I wonder if she eventually went back to our world.
Becauseeeeee I was honestly looking forward to when Ruoxi would zap back to the 21st century in BBJX. It was clear fate wasn't going to change and the nightmare was only growing longer. The story ended at a gloomy place, and Ruoxi was stuck in that part of history, forever, which is very depressing.
I'm conflicted about this, because I had liked the story very much for being strangely real. And when RX spends her days, which turned into years, there, the reality only sets in even further. That this is no longer a dream or a play, that this world is staying. But a part of me find it dissatisfying that she languished away and eventually died in this world. There was no mission, no goal, no DESTINY, despite this being a time-travelling story. Okay, so I'm not asking her to save a ruined kingdom, or develop penicillin. But she didn't even leave behind any impact that's remembered by history. No legend or myth. The story just ended up being a tragic love story, which, normally, I'd be all over. In this case though, it just really bugs me that the time-travelling aspect became moot. You know, normally, people choose to stay because they've found something they can't let go of. She's just STUCK. For her to be stuck there makes the entire thing a bit of a freak accident, especially if her stay wasn't a happy one. That exact hopelessness is one depressing thing to get over.
