    Default Unstoppable Deaths

    OK, so Granny Sun's death could possibly have been stopped by a higher power such as FAST SABRE Qi Liu.

    What about Zhang Cuishan's death, Xiao Feng's death, etc. Surely they couldn't have been so fast that nobody could have intervened. I understand that Jin Yong needed them to die. But FTFOI, can you think of anyone who could have stopped their death?

    Well, if we're to stick to the original situation, someone could seal their pressure points before they commit suicide.
    楚留香笑道:你口气倒真不小。 小字出口,他已箭一般向阴姬冲了过去。他知道自己唯一能胜过对方之处,就是个快字。所以他尽量利用 这快字,只要他能抢得一刹那间的先机,他就或许还有战胜的希望。他出手实在快,快如急风,快如闪电。谁 知他刚一出手,阴姬的手掌一挥,就立刻有一股奇异的力量阻住了他的去路,这股力量如浪潮初起,澎湃不绝。楚 留香莫说根本无法抢得先机,根本就近不了她的身。

    I suppose in those 2 other cases, FAST SABRE Qi Liu could again save the day if he dropped by.

    Would have stunned Zhang and Xiao long enough for Wudang brothers or XZ/DY to intervene.

    In our parody of Jin Yong (whenever we write it), it could be like this:

    1. FAST SABRE is for hire whenever there is danger involved. People pay him to hang above, and drop down whenever someone is about to get killed.

    2. Eventually, people will be brainwashed enough to think that the only way to stop a death is to do it via FAST SABRE. Therefore, when a low level fighter (let's say HUMAN CHEF) wants to kill himself, somebody Great such as Zhang Sanfeng could easily stop it. But instead, Zhang Real Man has to launch a LDA to cut loose FAST SABRE's string, so that FAST SABRE can drop down to stop the suicide.

    Anyway, When Xie Xun tried to commit suicide, Zhang Cuishan yelled out "Don't hurt Wuji!" Which was a genius tactic to startle Xie Xun, and thus successfully prevented his death.

    So in Xiao Feng, somebody should yell: "Ah Zhu, you're back!" That should get his attention.

    In Zhang Cuishan's case, somebody should yell: "Ah Xie Xun, there you are!" That would definitely get his attention.
