tang river

10

Shengsi, an archipelago of almost 400 islands at the mouth of China’s Yangtze river, holds a secret shrouded in time – an abandoned fishing village being reclaimed by nature. These photos by Tang Yuhong, a creative photographer based in Nanning, take us into this lost village on the beautiful archipelago.

War of the Heart

翻天覆地携手浪逐浪
fan tian fu di xie shou lang zhu lang
Earth shattering hand holding waves after waves
千杯不醉只醉月光
qian bei bu zui zhi zui yue guang
Drunk not by a thousand cups but by the moonlight
会心一笑不必讲
hui xin yi xiao bu bi jiang
A knowing smile needs no elaboration
对看一切都雪亮
dui kan yi qie dou xue liang
Everything seen is dazzling

✶ 赤手空拳心机里攻防
chi shou kong quan xin ji li gong fang
Empty handed scheming to attack
铁壁铜墙也敢碰撞
tie bei tong qiang ye gan peng zhuang
Daring even to knock down metal and copper walls
今生不枉这一趟 烈火 烧出凤凰
jin sheng bu wang zhe yi tang lie huo shao chu feng huang
Would be worthwhile in this life for a phoenix to emerge from the flames

把累风干 这一仗 心的战场
ba lei feng gan zhe yi zhang xin de zhan chang
Tired winds dry this battle of the heart
赢得漂亮 一起上 输也坦荡
ying de piao liang yi qi shang shu ye tan dang
Together embarking on a beautiful victory or an unselfish loss
谁怕也长 狂啸当歌 相知 最难忘
shei pa ye chang kuang xiao dang ge xiang zhi zui nan wang
Who is afraid still grows, wild roars like music, to know each other is hardest to forget
滚滚长江 滚烫 依旧在胸膛
gun gun chang jiang gun tang yi jiu zai xiong tang
Rolling rivers, hot still kept close to the chest
狂啸当歌 何妨 惊涛裂岸 不枉
kuang xiao dang ge he fang jing tao lie an bu wang
Wild roars as music, why not shock waves and split shores, it’d be worthwhile

拖口成句意短却情长
tuo koucheng ju yi duan qing qie chang
Drag words into sentences; short meaning but long tales
千杯不醉只醉月光
qianbei bu zui zhi zui yue guang
Drunk not by a thousand cups but by the moonlight
会心一笑不必讲
hui xin yi xiao bu bi jiang
A knowing smile needs no elaboration
对看 一些都雪亮
dui kan yi qie dou xue liang
Most things seen are dazzling

心理交战 这一仗 心的战场
xin li jiao zhan zhe yi zhang xin de zhan chang
Psychological war; this is a battle of the heart
以战止战 一起上 痛快一场
yi chang zhi zhan yi qi shang tong kuai yi chang
To embark on a fight to the end; an enjoyable battle
谁怕夜长 狂啸当歌 相知 最难忘
shei pa ye chang kuang xiao dang ge xiang zhi zui nan wang
Who is afraid of long nights, wild roars like music, to know each other is hardest to forget
滚滚长江 滚烫 依旧在胸膛
gun gun chang jiang gun tang yi jiu zai xiong tang
Rolling rivers, hot still kept close to the chest
狂啸当歌 何妨 惊涛裂岸 不枉
kuang xiao dang ge he fang jing tao lie an bu wang
Wild roars as music, why not shock waves and split shores, it’d be worthwhile

这一刻 在何方 这一杯 我先干
zhe yi ke zai he fang zhe yi bei wo xian gan
In this moment anywhere; I’ll toast this first glass
为你受过伤 是我的勋章
wei ni shou guo shang shi wo de xun zhang
To suffer for you is my honour
多少的悲欢 都尽付笑谈
duo shao de bei huan dou jin fu xiao tan
No matter how much joys and sorrows we’ll make light of it
今夜这月光 先喝光
jin ye zhe yue guang xian he guang
Tonight under the moonlight; let’s drink to it.

Zombie AU (johnkat, rated T)

johnkat kisses-Anon, I am terribly sorry, but I accidentally deleted your ask *headdesk*
This is from an AU I’ve never posted (and is not finished), basically it’s a zombie AU, with John and Karkat as an unlikely duo trying to stay alive. They’ve already been travelling together for quite  a while here.


Down below, leaves crunch underfoot. Somebody’s coming. Somebody alive, the gait is too purposeful and rhythmical to be a zombie.

Karkat, probably, but you carefully shift the rifle to your shoulder and peer through the scope.

It is Karkat, phew. He wordlessly signs for you to drop the rope. You do so, watching it uncoil on the way down to come to a lashing stop about four feet off the ground. As he climbs, you cover his back, rifle ready.

It’s a long way up, the tree is a behemoth, and Karkat’s out of breath by the time he’s close enough for you to offer a hand to help him up the platform. He pointedly ignores it, unable to suppress a grunt as he claws gouges into the wooden planks trying to scrabble his lagging ass over the edge. You pointedly roll your eyes because he’s an idiot.
