When I first saw the fan-edit, I wanted to write something for that period. The challenge being to be historically accurate. Hence, I have done away with history and this story is set in a fictitious land, during a fictitious time, loosely based on nuggets of facts that I know about Chinese society of a time long, long ago. I am making it all up, a fusion, so some things you may find familiar if you have watched period dramas. But otherwise, don’t be too hung up on accuracy because this piece does not aim to be historically accurate at all.
And now, with that out of the way, enjoy. 🙂
