Venerable White held his chin and muttered to himself, “Oh, I almost forgot about it. Now that Fairy Firefly mentioned it, Shuhang was supposed to stay in space for one month as punishment after losing in the hand-guided tractor competition, but it seems that our agreement wasn’t fulfilled in the end.”
Song Shuhang got a scare. Would he get ‘pewed’ to space? Given Senior White’s disposition, it was possible!
Although he really liked space and dreamt of becoming an astronaut when he was a child, he didn’t want to return to space at this time!
In addition, by counting the time he passed in the Lower City of the Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion, the total amount of time he passed in space had surpassed one month!
Song Shuhang said, “Senior White, from a certain point of view, I’ve stayed in space for more than one month! Please, listen to my explanation”
“Did you enter a secret realm related to time?” Venerable White said with a smile.
Song Shuhang replied in puzzlement, “Eh? Senior White, how do you know it?”
“Because the ‘Ten Thousand Mile Flying Escape Technique’ I gave you activated a few days after you were sent to space,” Venerable White said.
After saying this much, Venerable White wrote in the Nine Provinces Number One Group: ”@Fairy Firefly,little friend Shuhang already passed one month in space. We can consider this matter as finished.”
“Eh? Just like this?” Fairy Firefly seemed very disappointed. Her obsessive-compulsive disorder had flared up, and she felt that Song Shuhang hadn’t truly passed one month in space; she just couldn’t feel at ease.
Venerable White laughed and took out his phone, ready to give the Sobbing Old Man a call. Since Song Shuhang had returned to Earth, there was no need for the Sobbing Old Man to stay up there and wait for Shuhang to complete the trial he had prepared. He could come back as well.
However, Venerable White wasn’t able to contact him.
From the looks of it, the Sobbing Old Man was in a place with no signal. Under these circumstances, he couldn’t even use a thousand mile sound transmitter to get in touch with him since he didn’t know his coordinates.
Forget it. I’ll try to find a way to contact him again in a while,Venerable White thought to himself.
At this time, the Sobbing Old Man had once more reached the entrance of the Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion, stubbornly protecting his future.
After a short while, the fellow daoists of the Nine Provinces Number One Group started to choose the roles they liked.
Fairy Lychee: ”@Venerable White,can I play the role of the second female lead of the story, the ghost woman Ling’er? I don’t know why, but I really feel like playing the role of this ghost female lead.”
Venerable White: “Sure, no problem. Fairy Lychee, if you are free, you should quickly head over here. It’s possible that we’ll start shooting the movie today.”
“So quickly? I’ll set out as soon as possible! ” Fairy Lychee said with a smile.
The nearby Song Shuhang held his chin and started to ponder. When he saw Fairy Lychee wishing to play the role of the ghost female lead, he recalled the faraway Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion and Senior Sister Ye Si.
He thought of Senior Sister Ye Si because he remembered something. Immortal Master Copper Trigram had assumed Fairy Lychee’s appearance and entered the Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion as a guest together with Doudou.
Senior Sister Ye Si felt a very ‘gentle’ aura from Immortal Master Copper Trigram, who was at the time disguised as Fairy Lychee. According to what Senior Sister Ye Si had said, that gentle aura reminded her of her mother.
Was it just a coincidence?
Right at this time, Venerable White suddenly said, “Shuhang, return to your senses. You have to note down that Fairy Lychee will play the part of the second female lead, Ling’er.”
“I’m sorry, I got distracted.” Song Shuhang quickly noted down Fairy Lychee’s name on the list of the actors.
In the Nine Provinces Number One Group.
True Monarch Fallout: “I would like to play the role of the sect master of the Immaterial Cloud Sect, Daoist Priest Wuwei. He will help the sect ward off the surprise attack of the mysterious demonic army, protecting the future seeds of the sect and opening a bloody path through the army of demons. He will ultimately die in the hands of the demons with thousands of arrows piercing his body. I really like this role.”
Venerable White: “That’s great.”
Northern River’s Loose Cultivator: “I didn’t know that Fellow Daoist Fallout liked tragic heroes!”
“Ahaha, it’s possible that I like this type of role because I never got to experience anything of the like ,” True Monarch Fallout said with a smile.
When the bright moon appears: “I would like to play the role of the Evil General Mingyue, the commander of the demonic army during the destruction of the Immaterial Cloud Sect. I feel that this role has a very strong presence!”
Venerable White: “Very well. I’ll tell Shuhang to note everything down.”
Song Shuhang nodded and noted on the list of actors that Scholar Drunken (?) would play the role of the Evil General Mingyue.
For some unknown reason, he couldn’t remember the last part of Senior When the bright moon appears’ name.
He was able to recall the word ‘drunken’ because he got drunk a lot during the past several days. Anyway, it would be better to ask Senior White about the remaining part later.
At this time, other users in the group were also sending messages.
Young Master Phoenix Slayer: “In that case, I would like to play the role of the guardian divine beast of the Immaterial Cloud Sect, the Heaven Devouring Cat. It will carry on the legacy of the Immaterial Cloud Sect and ultimately find the main character, becoming his guardian beast. I really like this role. In addition, is it possible to give the role of the divine beast from the faction of the demons, the Infernal Demonic Dog, to Doudou? In the last act, the Heaven Devouring Cat will cut off the ten heads of the Infernal Demonic Dog and devour them. I feel that I’ll be able to play the role of this character even better if Doudou plays the role of its rival.”
Venerable White: ”@True Monarch Yellow Mountain,can Doudou participate in the play as well? There is no need to make haste since Doudou will make his appearance around the end of the story. It shouldn’t interfere with the wedding you want to hold.”
True Monarch Yellow Mountain: “There is no problem. I agree in Doudou’s stead.”
Venerable White: “It’s settled then.”
“Doudou, eh?” Song Shuhang said with a smile.Since Senior Phoenix Slayer is also coming over, will I be able to borrow his CPU?
Right at this time, True Monarch White Crane also found a role that was suitable for itself. “Shuhang, reserve the role of the White-Clothed Swordsman of the White Sword Sect for me. This male supporting character is a friend and drinking companion of the protagonist that will secretly help him and comfort him during the darkest time of his life. I really like this role.”
Song Shuhang nodded and prepared to note True Monarch White Crane’s role down.
But then, he recalled the background of this character.
The ‘White-Clothed Swordsman’ of the White Sword Sect, Fan Bai. A supporting (fe)male character with a petite figure and delicate features that was a friend and drinking companion of the main character.
In the end she married Senior Brother Gao Sheng and died together with him during the decisive war against the demonic army.
He was going to flip a table! ()
What was the deal with this development!?
As one might have guessed, it was a role that the stupid Gao Moumou had created for his girlfriend Yayi.
Now then, was Song Shuhang really going to marry True Monarch White Crane during the movie?
No, he absolutely couldn’t accept this point!
Thereupon, Song Shuhang said earnestly, “True Monarch, this is just wrong. You can’t play this role!”
“Why?” True Monarch White Crane asked in return. It had managed to find with great difficulty a role that could allow it to closely follow the main character, Senior White. On what basis was Song Shuhang trying to deny it this role?
“I feel that Senior White Crane’s figure isn’t petite enough for this role. This role is better suited for someone like Sixteen!” Song Shuhang suggested.
“You fool, it seems you don’t have a good understanding of my race,” True Monarch White Crane sneered. Then, it unfurled the six wings on its back, and its whole body slightly shone.
After getting shrouded in light, its build changed a bit, becoming petite and delicate.
The members of White Crane’s race didn’t have a fixed gender before finding their one true love. Therefore, after becoming able to assume human form, True Monarch White Crane ended up having two forms.
Although both forms were genderless, one had a masculine appearance while the other a feminine one.
This petite form was True Monarch White Crane’s feminine form.
“In addition, little friend Sixteen specializes in saber techniques, while I practice sword techniques. I alone am qualified for the role of the White-Clothed Swordsman!” True Monarch White Crane said complacently in a clear and melodious voice.
Song Shuhang opened his mouth but couldn’t say anything. He had no idea how to refute True Monarch White Crane’s argument.
Venerable White nodded his head and said, “Very well then. It’s settled.”
The matter regarding this role was settled just like this.
Song Shuhang swore that he would seize every opportunity to throw Senior Brother Gao Sheng’s role to another fellow daoist!
Su Clan’s Sixteen laughed. Then, she found another role she liked, the role of the last living disciple of the White Sword Sect, Traceless Saber. The sole female disciple of the White Sword Sect that used the saber.
The last part made her feel that there was a certain fate between her and this role. There were several types of high-quality cultivation techniques in the Spirit River Su Clan. Although the elders of the clan recommended her to practice cultivation techniques that were more suitable for female cultivators, in the end, she decided to practice saber techniques just like Seven.
Just in this fashion, the various roles got booked one after another.
It didn’t matter if the roles belonged to good or evil characters, the fellow daoists of the Nine Provinces Number One Group selected them all.
Song Shuhang sighed with emotion, holding the long list of actors. He said, “It’s finally taken care of.”
“What do we do next?” Venerable White’s actor soul was on fire, and he wished they could start shooting immediately.
As for the lines of the various characters, powerful cultivators didn’t need too much effort to memorize them. They had to read them once to firmly keep them in mind.
Song Shuhang pondered for a moment and said, “After actors, director, and movie crew are here, the next most important things we have to take care of should be clothing and shooting sites. Speaking of shooting sites, although the first act of the script starts with the main character Ling Ye and Senior Brother Gao Sheng having a martial arts contest, the movie should start with the picture of the Immaterial Cloud Sect seen from above. Afterward, the scene should zoom in and finally focus on the martial arts stage. Under normal circumstances, the crew would make use of computer-generated imagery. But in our case, should we directly look for a sect and shoot the scene there?”
“Yes, no need to overcomplicate things. We can simply go to one of my holiday residences and shoot the scene there,” Venerable White said. “A long time ago, I found the remains of an abandoned medium-sized sect. The scenery wasn’t bad, and even the spiritual qi was very rich. I really have no idea why they abandoned it in the first place. Anyway, after finding it, I spent some money on it and renovated everything, turning it into my holiday residence. We can use that place to shoot the scenes of the first act.
“Then, when we have to shoot the scene of the decisive battle in the desert, we can simply use my illusory reality,” Venerable White also added.
When Venerable White said these words, Song Shuhang felt the aura of a nouveau riche blow in his face.
