This sudden explosion of popularity made Ruan Tian public enemy number one among many other small starlets.
Overnight, Ruan Tian was suddenly the main rival of a hundred different women. No one was happy to see this rowdy new actress suddenly interfering in their circle of lotuses.
Meanwhile, on her hard-won day off, Ruan Tian unexpectedly finally received the excerpt of his next script that Director Cheng Sui’an had promised to send over last time.
Along with the script, he also sent the time and place where her audition would be held.
Who knew where he got the news, but Qin An also seemed to know she was going to audition soon. Because of that, her WeChat was suddenly flooded with messages.
IdiotQin: 【Little sister, you really need to stop dreaming.】
IdiotQin: 【Unfortunately, you won’t be just competing with a bunch of rotten fish and small shrimps this time. Your opponents are all powerful actresses with serious academic backgrounds and excellent qualifications who have won awards. Being honest, your qualifications, experience, and acting skills really can’t compare to theirs at all. 】
IdiotQin: 【Don’t blame me for being unpleasant, I just like to tell the truth.】
Qin An felt that while Ruan Tian must have some degree of talent, probably what happened this time was that she had met a role that was really suitable for her. Everyone knew that if a role really suited a person it could cause their performance to be elevated another level and become more outstanding and amazing.
However, next time her luck probably wouldn’t be so good.
People who relied on luck wouldn’t be able to do so forever. Moreover, Qin An really felt that there was no way Ruan Tian’s strength could be on par with the strength of these actresses who had made their debut many years back and won all sorts of awards.
Of course, Qin An wasn’t the only one who was thinking this way.
The cold and arrogant Xu Jing also specially sent her a message saying: 【I have seen the list of people who will be auditioning. This time you really don’t have much chance of winning the role, but don’t be discouraged even if you fail. Just try your best.】
All of these people seemed to think that she was too naive and inexperienced. They thought that because of a little bit of talent, a lot of luck sent by the heavens, and by relying on the careful guidance of her director, she barely managed to reach her current stage. But they completely ignored her own efforts and persistence.
Everyone around her assumed she would fail.
Even Cheng Sui’an himself didn’t have particularly high expectations for Ruan Tian.
Of course, Ruan Tian didn’t feel convinced. Rather, this event only served to show her that all these brainless idiots were still treating her with their same old prejudices!
During this time, the broadcast of ‘Destined Immortals’ was ongoing and the show was quickly approaching its finale. The little martial sister who had won the hearts of many audience members, who was played by Ruan Tian, continued to be beaten and abused by her heartless master, who was played by Shao Chengyue. In a climactic scene, the young girl had already cried all of her tears dry but was still beaten to the ground until trickles of blood dripped from her lips. However, even in this state her eyes stayed stubbornly fixed on her cold and unreachable master, and her lips moved to soundlessly form his name.
This climactic point in the plot propelled the show to the skies until it was approaching the highest ratings in history.
The number of web broadcasts exceeded 500 million the day the episode was released, the ratings continued to soar up and up, and the mid-episode advertisement slots were selling at sky-high prices to the tune of tens of millions of yuan.
The women in the audience all cried for the little martial sister played by Ruan Tian, but at the same time her master, who was played by Shao Chengyue, was so handsome that many of them couldn’t help but like him.
The comments on the show’s official Weibo were lively every day.
“Our little junior sister is so beautiful, it would be better if she just stayed alone. What kind of toxic garbage is her master? How can he abuse his little junior sister like this? Is he even a human?”
“Master is a god, not a human. I think it’s okay if he’s a little rough, as long as its a “Happy End” at the end, it’s fine.”
“No, I strongly demand a “Bad End”. Please let our little sister just die. Death would be better than following that cold-hearted and cold-blooded master of hers.”
“All of my tears for this year have been spent on my little junior martial sister.”
“I want a “Happy End”! If it’s really a “Bad End” I will immediately refund the fee for my annual membership.”
“Little junior sister has already been abused like this, if she really ends up together with that garbage in the end I think I’ll go crazy. Wouldn’t that just be the joining of a slag man and a trash woman? ! I will never accept it! Not only will I hate this drama, I will also hate Ruan Tian!”
In all the online spaces the “Bad End” faction and the “Happy End” faction were constantly at war and quarreling nonstop.
Finally, the grand finale was released and Ruan Tian’s character really got back together with her aloof master, and this outcome was seen as totally unacceptable to many people from the “Bad End” faction. Some of the extremists even turned their ire on Ruan Tian and vowed to be anti-fans from now on. Of course, such people were the minority.
“Well, when I saw the look in little junior sister’s eyes, I couldn’t bring myself to blame her for her choice.”
“Alas, junior martial sister is really too good, meanwhile, her master is really just a dog.”
“I think her master is actually all right. He also had his reasons.”
“This outcome just disgusts me. I feel like I’m being force-fed sh*t. Does she even have a brain? She still wants to forgive him even after having suffered so much abuse? From today on, I will always be Ruan Tian’s sworn anti-fan.”
