    Story:
    Once upon a time, there was a very beautiful fairy. 玉皇大帝 (Yu Huang Dadi) proposed to her but she rejected him. So he asked her to choose whether to marry him or being turned into a turtle for 1000 years. She picked the later one. After 1000 years, 玉皇大帝 (Yu Huang Dadi)* felt bad about it and turned her into a 玄武 (Black Tortoise)**.

    *玉皇大帝 (Yu Huang Dadi) is the ruler of Heaven according to Chinese mythology.
    **玄武 (Black Tortoise) is one of the Four Symbols of the Chinese constellations.

    Just like Zeus, ‹Êc‘å’é (Yu Huang Dadi) is a perverted jerk. Seriously, who else will propose like that?

    i absolutly love turtles. i rememeber not ot long ago (like 3 months maybe haha) i begged and begged for a turtle. i got one allrigth. a stuffed orange and lavender turtle form the zoo.
    but i love it none the less
    i see alot of symbolism in turtles. they represent motherhood and the journey to fertility. well of course these are my own little made up stories, but convincing anyway. i believe it!!

    What?! You think tortoises represents "motherhood"?
    Reptiles are irresponsible parents! Including turtle, tortoise & terrapins....
