    Initial impression of the changes in DGSD chapter 42: not a fan. There are some positive changes, such as clarifying how MRB killed Xuanbei, but the 2 big revelations - Big Brother and MRB's identities, are now revealed casually, rather than in the edge-of-your-seat fashion of 2nd edition. Much of the excitement is lost.

    After a long time ,finally I found the 3rd edition of DGSD.
    I really hate the new storyline and I think JY ruined DY and even WYZ.What was the problem with 2nd edition?Why he changed the story and ruined it?
    DY chased YY like a shadow in 80% of story
    He was beaten because her.he was in danger because of her.he decided to marry because of her.He fell into the well because of her.And all of those because of a Statue????
    Also YY throw her self to the well because of DY and at the end she went to take care of The loser MRF?really?MRF?Her mother's murderer and The reason of her father's suicide?
    Why he changed the story and ruined it?MWQ?There were better ways.He could turn YY or WQ into a nun.He could make DY marry all three like WXB.he could killed YY or WQ or both of them.He could leave them to be brother(DY) and sisters(YY,WQ,ZL).But he chose the way that completely destroyed DY's storyline
    For me there is no 3rd edition of DGSD and 2nd edition is the last

    It's true of course, though IIRC in 2nd edition I don't think this issue was ever brought up explicitly. In fact I don't even remember if WYY learned who is her father or her mother's death in the story. When Duan Yu & WYY saw the mental MRF at the end, they just felt sorry for him.

    You said a important matter from DGSD
    Plot holes.
    I wonder why JY didn't erase plot holes and decided to throw all the DY's storyline into the trash?

    Well, unfortunately for us, it's more fun from a writer's perspective to write new things. It's more tedious to fix things and make everything coherent (although he did do a lot of that in other novels, just not so much in DGSD). It's "boring" from a creative perspective, although we would like it very much.

    I finally read the 3rd ed change of Mei Chaofeng's flashback. All I can say is WOW. It really humanizes Huang Yaoshi and his disciples.
    Their complex relationships now make a lot more sense.

    But I think there might be a mistake in chapter 26, when: 梅超风道:恩师,您在归云庄上叫弟子做三件事,头两件事弟子是来不及做了。

    If my copy isn't wrong, the part where HYS instructs MCF to do 3 things in chapter 14 has been removed. So the above reference (and the subsequent happiness of rejoining the organization) is now a leftover mistake?

    I think that how the MC in Wuxia novels can't recognize a woman with a man suit is actually believe-able. The reason why we can recognize them easily is because : 1> they wear make-up, which is natural as they're just actress who play in a show. 2> We know the woman actress who wear the man suit. 3> the suit, even when it looks like a man suit, but still has a feminism feel on them.

    But in reality, it's harder to recognize a woman when they really wear a man suit. Specially when they don't wear make-up, has a man hair style, and wear man jacket and man jean. They will be look like a man. Specially when they have a tomboy face / manly face. Not a cute one.

    And, even in the ancient time, there are also men with feminism behavior. So how could they recognize that guy as a woman if they look like a pretty boy with feminism behavior alone?

    That's all nice and fine if the girl was built more tomboy like and with a deeper voice.

    But then you have dainty little Ah Zhu who passes off as musclebound Xiao Feng even in front of his beggar sect friends.... that's more mind-bending then DG9J.

    Can you like, I dunno, imagine Gal Gadot passing off as Usain Bolt thanks to clever disguise?
    Its BIxie Jianfa Gawdammit you guys!!!!
