Eight hundred years ago, Xie Lian was the Crown Prince of the Xian Le kingdom. He was loved by his citizens and was considered the darling of the world. He ascended to the Heavens at a young age; however, due to unfortunate circumstances, was quickly banished back to the mortal realm. Years later, he ascends again–only to be banished again a few minutes after his ascension.

Now, eight hundred years later, Xie Lian ascends to the Heavens for the third time as the laughing stock among all three realms. On his first task as a god thrice ascended, he meets a mysterious demon who rules the ghosts and terrifies the Heavens, yet, unbeknownst to Xie Lian, this demon king has been paying attention to him for a very, very long time.

TGCF or Tian Guan Ci Fu/Heaven Official's Blessing is a story about disgraced martial god Xie Lian. 800 years ago, Xie Lian was a beloved crown prince who ascended to heaven to due to his skill with the sword. For some time he was revered and loved as a powerful and esteemed god. However, through some misfortune, Xie Lian was ultimately banished from heaven. After living in the human realm for some time, Xie Lian was once again able to ascend, only to be banished once more (& even quicker than the first time). The story picks up as Xie Lian is ascending for the third time. By this time, he is widely regarded as a "laughing stock of the three realms" and not very well-respected in heaven. Upon ascending, his bad luck gets the best of him and he finds himself going on a mission for heaven. It is during this mission that he comes across Hua Cheng, a Supreme ghost king feared by all 3 realms. While most gods shake at the mere mention of Hua Cheng's name, Xie Lian feels no fear and instead finds himself extremely interested in this mysterious man. And Hua Cheng himself holds special interest in Xie Lian as well.
