    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.

    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.
