Falling Dreams of Fang Hua

mlfh copy


I have a foster father…

Um, that’s not the important part. I just want to say, why doesn’t he understand the differences between boys and girls in this world? He insists a pornographic picture is actually a diagram of acupuncture points. And also…why did he raise me as a boy for 15 years?! It’s impressive that he can write prescriptions, but I studied poisons.

But, why is he a Fang Hua Beast…

The blooming flowers fall, their fragrances scattering, forms sinking to the earth, moistening the grass and trees, turning into Fang.
Wine cups and fragments lie in disorder, the sound of voices dispersing, leaving a lonely shadow, and an expanse of misty waters, called Hua.
Originally he had good intentions, though seemingly no heart, if ever something moved it, then he would lose that heart, and have love make him a Beast.

Salamander of the Vast Oceans

  • Melacholy

    Please…help…I don’t understand the ending…I read the raws since it’s my mother tongue, but the ending is too complicated for me. Please reply

    • Melacholy

      Oh I saw that you posted on a forum that many versions are incomplete, I’ll push on >.<

      • Ruyi

        You can find the link to the full raws in the table of contents page for FDFH right here on volare. 🙂

  • paperman

    Thank you for the chapters! Can anyone tell me if this is going to be a happy ending? I need to prepare my heart ahaha.

    I would loathe this to be a tragedy… the characters deserve so much more 🙁

  • Tricks

    I’ve waited years for this to be translated, as I’ve read the excerpts I thought it would be fun. I really..really thought it was.. I wasn’t ready, my heart was not prepared. Ohhh somebody! anyone! Uplift me, bring me out in this abyss of depression hahahahuhuhu!!!

    But I still love this novel, thank you translator! May I find peace tonight huhuhahau

  • Drop down and other functional button most likely dont work when javascript is turned off.

  • I’m dying to know if this is a happy ending??? So far its seems so tragic

    • Thiiis. Ugh my heart is bleeding from all the pain. Is this BE? Would love to know first so I can continue/drop it. I don’t mind bad endings, but I’m too invested in this one to survive unscathed.

      • Ruyi

        I can say with fair certainty that…you will survive. 🙂

  • I have been waiting for this novelthank you for translating it and sharing it❤❤❤❤

  • van

    does anyone know how many chapters there are?

    • Ruyi

      I haven’t had time to completely count because the raws are rather messily organized (no table of contents orz), but there should be no more than 100, or maybe a very inflated 80 chapters.
      We’re currently a little over halfway through this series.

      • van

        thanks you 🙂

  • Book one does not work (drop down menu does not work)

    • Ruyi

      Ah what are you using? Mobile and laptop both work for me, perhaps you could try manually inputting the chapter number?
      I’ll try to see what’s up tomorrow!

    • I think it’s because you have to click on the arrow, not the words.
