Not for jokes, but this is seriously what I think. Because XLN is describes as a "fairy", I can presume that her mother is also beutiful because of genetic reasons. Now, this leaves me with 2 choices left. 1) Her mother was too beautiful and got raped. Gave the child up. 2)The faimly was too poor to support XLN and had to give her up.
I honestly think 1 is the more clear choice.
One explanation could be that Daoism was said to be rather liberal when it comes to sex, and even understood it to be an important part of a healthy life. There's also the idea of the ying and yang complementing each other during intercourse and etc. etc. Examples of 男女雙修 (sexual healing ) abounds in some wuxia books, such as those of Huang Yi's. So in a Daoist sect even though the practitioners may be celibate they may still have access to the know-how...
Remember that YG lived on his own for a long time as basically a street urchine. Kids usually grow up fast in those situations.
I dont think YG knows anything. He only got his first "awakening of lust" with LWSOriginally Posted by Siven
Yeah... That could be... and now that you think about it, that scenerio is one of the more likely ones.... STUPID RAPISTS!! Ugh... But that does bring up the question of why Xiao Long Nu didn't get pregnant... Maybe she's barren? But let's not go into details as this thread will be closed.Originally Posted by Whsie
the 1st senario is well, the same thing happened to the daughter and now the mum too? it couldn't be that tragic right...
I'm more inclined to picture her family (must be a reputable martial arts clan and had the good genes - daddy and mummy) was under the attack of some enemies (it is always so easy to make enemies in the pugilist world) and they were escaping from the enemies and nearby was Mt. Zhong Nan... fearing for the safety of the baby's life and thinking either they could always come back for her in the future or they could die, they left her near Chong Yang shrine, hoping someone will take care/protect her. But in the end... the whole family was masscared and nobody would ever know the identity of the baby. How interesting it would be if Xiao Long Nu was to find out if she is the only living descendant of a reputable martial arts family.
Maybe she was hatched out of an egg which a dragon had laid on the top of the Tomb, and thus she was named Little Dragon Girl by her master.

Probably she was born from royalty and the mother had an affair and had to leave her somewhere. That might explain her exceptional beauty, since being born from a really poor family that had no money to feed wouldn't explain how she became so goddess-looking.
