somebuddy: Another interesting thought. Clown, as used here, is clearly the traditional rather than modern clown, and is thus closely linked to the jester, especially in a Tarot-derived context.

I'm not sure how much of this is relevant to the story, but I found it interesting. The author is telling a unique story yet often adapts other material to fit his purpose, so I skimmed some related sources...

A ruler's jester was often his hidden advisor, spy, strategist, not least because the jester must not be taken seriously, thus could get away with saying the unsayable and do the unthinkable, and thus could challenge and satirize a foolish decision, allowing it to be reconsidered without loss of face.

The best of them were sometimes viewed as having "the unusual power to say the stupidist things, that somehow provoked great enlightenments in a wise listener."

A court jester was often referred as a 'licensed fool', and was often viewed in a light that would confuse a modern person.

In Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, Feste the jester is described as "wise enough to play the fool".

Another one was referred to as "The King's fool and jester, with the power to mock and revile even the most prominent without penalty"

The Fool, the Jester, and the Clown are overlapping archetypes.

Of possibly good news to our protagonist, in some traditions, the Fool(and his variants) stands outside the rules of the normal trumps, and often has the highest effect and value, but is constrained from directly controlling things...

Red and Black, or Yellow and Black are traditional colors for the Jester/Fool, (which might imply a different meaning than the more direct Lovecraftian linkages, but fit a protagonist better)

I love how NingQue put away his weapons, tided his clothes and fixed his hair 😆. It's like someone will meet his crush 😂😂.

I feel like the switch between LY and the Mental Devil is similar to Ichigo and his inner Hollow in Bleach. This seems to be the first time LY has intentionally gave control of his body to the Mental Devil. I wonder if this indicates the beginning of MD's slow and cunning attempt in taking over LY's body.

PhantaPhoenix: First off, in my opinion this is probably one of the top 10 novels on this website in terms of quality.

Secondly, why would a novel being ongoing make it any better or worse, everything is ongoing at some point.

Thirdly, why are you liking your own comments, you think people can't see it?

I wonder if Jin Tuyi is just trying to bring the vigilance of his son (and by extension Elder Nether Spring) down with his lie about the disease. It could end up making Elder NS more confident about his success. While JT's belief that LY being the right heir is his true feeling.

What led to JT's assumption about LY's infiltration/ID swap? Could be the level of refining ability LY showed in the first meeting + the mental derangement of Pervert Jin combined with extreme test result. Maybe LY isn't as great an actor as he thinks he is xD View More

Sage_Twoqilin: Absolutely, I fully agree. And then in accordance with your other comment about the world building, that's so accurate as well, yet there's still people that fail to understand that there's meaning to everything really and they just blindly call filler...

Jin Tuyi's knowledge of LY extends as far as Skeleton Dragon event where he was set on Self Sacrificing himself. So, it makes sense that he got fooled. Elder NS might still have him in the equation. View More
