Finale: The Reader and Protagonist Definitely Have to Be in True Love

In order to escape from a dreadful foreboding feeling, Du Ze tried to convince himself that it was only a dream He forced himself to divert his attention to something else: The computer screen’s clock showed that it was 11:50. He had slept for three hours.

Knowing Yi Ye Zhi Qiu’s habits, there should be an update at this time.

Du Ze moved his cursor to the “Mixed Race” webpage. As his eyes focused on a line of text, it was as though he had fallen into a vat of ice. His breath stopped in his throat when he saw the words on the webpage.

[Author’s Announcement: Thank you for supporting Yi Ye Zhi Qiu but Qiu has decided to stop writing.]

This message caused a commotion, not just among the readers, but also among the editorial staff. Qiu’s editor Jinyi1quickly grabbed his mouse and jumped into QQ chat.

EditorJinYi: Are you there? Are you there? Are you there?!!!

EditorJinYi: I must have opened it the wrong way! You said you wanted to abandon it?

EditorJinYi: Is anyone there? *buzz* Hey, you big shot!

Jinyi tried to find Qiu’s contact information while trying to get a response from QQ chat. He swore to himself that if he found that ****er’s address, he would get on a plane and fly there to hang himself at the door of Yi Ye Zhi Qiu’s house.

Jinyi persevered until Yi Ye Zhi Qiu finally answered.

YiYeZhiQiu: Ha-ha.

See the iconic “ha-ha”, Jinyi was so mad that he almost choked. He felt as though behind those words was a ****ing ****.

EditorJinYi: … Every time I see you write haha, I want to smack smack smack you.

Editor Silk: No, tell me your previous message is not true.

YiYeZhiQiu: It’s true.

EditorJinYi:…… Why don’t you want to write?

YiYeZhiQiu: Tomorrow is the end of the world.

The end of the world, your sister – !!!

The other editors watched with frightened eyes as Jinyi took a deep breath and put the keyboard down.

EditorJinYi: The end of the world hasn’t arrived yet. I think your doomsday is coming. [knife]

YiYeZhiQiu: Haha.

EditorJinYi:…… Boss, you really want to use that excuse? I don’t know you were the type of person who would believe in the end of the world so naively!

EditorJinYi: Give me a good reason!

Yi Ye Zhi Qiu glanced what Jinyi had typed in the QQ chat window. He moved his hand slightly and he accidentally clicked on his mouse and saw “Du Zi’s” comment. After reading it, Yi Ye Zhi Qiu was happy since he had found a good excuse.

Yi Ye Zhi Qiu: Well, the protagonist found out that I was the one responsible for abusing him so he climbed out of the novel to kill me.

The ellipses that Jinyi typed filled the whole chat window.

EditorJinYi: Acting cute! Shame on you!

YiYeZhiQiu: Haha.

EditorJinYi: You really don’t want to write?

YiYeZhiQiu: Yeah.

EditorJinYi: Hey, tell me what happened after that. The cliffhanger is inhumane.

YiYeZhiQiu: Next is the new era, the battle of the gods.

EditorJinYi: **** it. Ugh, you unexpectedly abandoned your work.

YiYeZhiQiu: It2 doesn’t have much to do with the main character.

EditorJinYi: Hey? What’s next?

YiYeZhiQiu: The Twilight of the Gods.

**** that just made me want to read it even more! Jinyi’s curiosity was greatly aroused so he tried to convince Yi Ye Zhi Qiu to write again.

He glanced at the clock on the lower left corner of his computer screen. Good, it was almost 12 o’clock.

He glanced at the lower-left time, very well, it was almost 12 o’clock.

EditorJinYi: Are you still alive?

YiYeZhiQiu: Ha-ha.

EditorJinYi: Congratulations, comrade Yi Ye Zhi Qiu, you made it survived the prophesied apocalypse! Please hurry up and update your novel.

YiYeZhiQiu: NASA says 2013 is the end of the world.

EditorJinYi: …

Seeing a new round of excuses, Jinyi realized that it was hopeless. He knows from previous experience that this ha-ha beast probably really doesn’t intend to continue writing.

EditorJinYi: Alright, but for the sake of our long friendship, at least tell me why you suddenly stopped writing?

The chat window showed that Qiu was “typing a response” but nothing happened for a long time.

YiYeZhiQiu: I can’t write, there is “life” in the other worldcaf342fh2#@

EditorJinYi:?

EditorJinYi: What are you doing? Are you mashing your face on the keyboard?3

Did Yi Ye Zhi Qiu get disconnected? Jinyi was puzzled and was going to ask what happened when he finally saw the response.

YiYeZhiQiu: …

Jinyi was frightened when he saw that series of ellipses. Ye Zhi Qiu was the type of person who made other people “…” but he who could make this ha-ha beast do the “…”?

YiYeZhiQiu: The protagonist really appeared.

EditorJinYi: What? Do you mean that your family’s protagonist really crawled out of the novel because of what you typed?

YiYeZhiQiu: Yes.

Jinyi stared at the “Yes” for five minutes before replying.

EditorJinYi: The protagonist is there? Are you okay?

YiYeZhiQiu: He took a look at me then went away, ha-ha.

EditorJinYi:: …

EditorJinYi: Boss, don’t stop taking your meds. This is reality, not a novel.

Yi Ye Zhi Qiu stood in front of the computer and glanced at the overturned chair. Then he slowly typed the last sentence: “Who knows, maybe we’re in a novel.”

********

Du Ze stared at the author’s announcement. He stared at it until his eyes started hurting but the fact that Yi Ye Zhi Qiu had abandoned the novel didn’t change.

He had been naive enough to think that even if he couldn’t be with him, at least he had “Mixed Blood” so he would still be able to watch over that person.

Even if no one else reads it, in a way he will still be with Xiu as he lives his life.

But now even this little bit of happiness was not to be.

Does he have to say farewell to “Mixed Blood,” the protagonist, and Xiu?

“… Why are you crying?”

Is he crying? Du Ze wondered. Then he suddenly froze.

… ?!

Du Ze wanted to turn but just as he was about to look behind him, he stopped.

He dared not turn around. He was afraid that if he looked behind him, a beautiful hallucination would be broken.

Seeing Du Ze standing in front of the computer, the man behind him sighed but the sound was like a laugh. The sound of footsteps came and a hand lightly grasped the back of Du Ze’s neck with a familiar, heartbreaking intensity and warmth.

Du Ze was as silent as a rock4 as he stared at the computer screen, which reflected the image of a blond youth. The page “Mixed Blood” on the screen completely framed the image of two people.

The reader and the protagonist.

Du Ze and Xiu.

His left hand was lifted up and something circled his finger tightly. Du Ze looked down at the silver-blue ring. When he returned, the ring from that world was gone but now it was once again restored to its rightful place.

Xiu’s breath gently touched his ear: “Don’t leave again.”

Don’t leave it behind again.

——Don’t leave me again.

His chest was overflowing with emotions. Du Ze grabbed Xiu’s arm. The warmth of that touch made him feel that this was real. Du Ze was in a daze and said what he was thinking out loud: “It’s real …”

He knew that his words sounded silly, but there was only tenderness in that person’s smile.

Xiu embraced Du Ze. Xiu’s handsome appearance was not the same as before. It was layered with an indescribable something – the accumulation of countless years. He spent billions of years in the darkness until he was finally reunited with this person.

The truth of the world was so simple yet so complex.

Xiu waved a finger slightly and a line of light blue text appeared in midair. “I promised I would make this story a reality.”

—— Du Ze and Xiu will be together forever.

Du Ze stared at the words, his heart beating faster and faster until his blood seemed to boil. Without being told, he understood that Xiu knew everything now.

Du Ze looked at Xiu. That person’s emotions were hidden in his deep blue eyes making others unable to see the bottomless and powerful affection that they contained. “… Does this story have a title?”

“What do you want to call it?”

Xiu kissed Du Ze’s black hair and his voice was full of the desire to indulge his beloved.

Once there was a reader who got transported into the world of his favorite novel. He met the protagonist and finally they can be together forever because …

Du Ze leaned his head against Xiu’s chest and listened to the familiar heartbeat. The corners of his mouth turned up slightly. “The Reader and Protagonist Definitely Have to Be in True Love.”

Translator’s Notes:

  • Yes this is the end of the story! I’m so happy that I was able to finish it. The first chapter was released 08/05/17. It took seven months to release 93 chapters. Not bad, huh? Please leave a comment if you can. I’m dying to know what everyone thinks of the ending.
  • Now that the story is complete I hope I can get more ratings at the Novelupdates.com project page. You don’t need to review the story to rate it. Just scroll down that page and when you click on the five stars to rate it, you will get a message saying “You’re done! Writing a review is optional.”
  • The extra chapters are an epilogue of sorts and they are all set after this chapter.

  1. 锦衣 – Jinyi (it seems to be a name or nickname so pinyin is better than a translation). Literal meaning: beautiful/gorgeous clothes. Figuratively it can also refer to guards, soldiers, officials.
  2. He means the “battle of the gods” arc.
  3. 脸滚键盘 – literally “face roll keyboard” but it’s slang from World of Warcraft. Players were complaining about players whose classes were overpowered – while others had to use tactics, the OP classes could one-shot kill others in PvP. A video of someone mashing his face against the keyboard and winning a fight became popular. Face roll keyboard – they can win just by randomly mashing whatever skill.
  4. Hmm, should I use the original “dumb as a wooden chicken”?

  1. thank you for translating this novel, i’m so glad that i found it when it was finished, i would died if i have to wait to know if they would have a happy ending

  2. Wait. Wait. Wait.

    If Xiu is in Du Ze’s world/dimension, does that mean that Xiu did destroy THAT world to reach him? Fuuuu–

    I am geniunely happy for their reunion but I still worry for the fate of the world Xiu left behind because of his desperation.

    Anyway, thank you for the hardwork of translating this gem! *kowtows*

  3. Aaaaaand…roll credits.

    I don’t usually finish web novels since I get bored half way through or the harem elements cross the line from tolerable to overly obnoxious. But I honestly could not stop reading this one. Even knowing there would be an HEA, still had so many gut clenching moments wondering if everything would turn out alright.

    So glad they got their HEA, Xiu especially deserved it. Very glad I started reading, and especially glad that I went from a bad translation to finding this site with a much better translation. Thank you so much for your hard work to bring us a readable version of this absolutely wonderful story!

  4. Thank you for all your hard work.
    Thank you for sharing this beautiful story with us. I’m sure that everyone agree with me when I say that ‘The Readers definitely are in true love with The Protagonists’ 😀
    Xiu and Du Ze – I’m so delighted that they found their happy end!
    Now I’m gonna read some extras and give this story 5 stars 😉

  5. Thank you for all your hard work! Thank you for generously sharing this novel with us! What a wild ride it’s been… when I saw that this was close to finishing, I actually stopped reading it for a few months because I wasn’t ready for it to end. So many feels now…

  6. …………………………….
    …………………………….
    I’m crying I need more

  7. Thank you for your translation .I really love the story of reader and protagonist and it become one of my favorite BL story.

  8. T^T will my tears ever stop falling?
    This is such I beautiful story, I can’t even……

    Thank you for the translation Reika-sama <3

  9. Wow, this turned out exactly as I predicted…This was a fantastic and unique story, but I’m a little disappointed that there wasn’t at least a little surprise at the end (like, wouldn’t have been an interesting plot twist if DZ’s world actually HAD ended like the author claimed because that world was also a novel, and the destruction of both the worlds brought them back together? I was kinda hoping for something like that..) I always feel slightly cheated when I can predict the ending perfectly before I reach the halfway point in a novel. It’s why I quit reading murder mysteries… but anyway, this is one of the better stories I have read in a while, so thank you SO MUCH for translating it for us. It is highly appreciated.

  10. Thankyou thankyou i loved reading this novel. I really like your translation too. The happy ending was well deserved because the reader and the protagonist are really in love

  11. 😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆
    The silly cute person and moe protagonist definitely have to be in true love.

  15. I swear I flipped my phone. Okay, can someone please appreciate with me? The author, literally wrote the book with the title of the title they mentioned. Like Inception or what? I can’t even comprehend right now.

    Thank you so much for translating this! Can’t wait to read the epilogue <3 Def my fav along with FOD

    1. I got your meagre now. Its a book within a book, then the author of the novel within a novel broke the fourth wall by the saying that they were in a novel… Buwooooonnggg!

  16. This definitely is one of my most favourite novels!! The plot is very unique and the character+story development is also very good. I also love the author’s sense of humour and there’s a fact that i’ve a thind for yandere male lead -///-. And lastly, Du Ze was so, so adorable<3<3<3

    The ending was beautiful

    THANK YOU SO MUCH REIKA FOR TRANSLATING THIS JEM. (I’m so sad to part with this, it was a wonderful journey to read this everyday .)

    (the fourth wall being broken by the author within the book made me laugh so hard XD)

  26. Waaaaah it’s finally over… No, i’m not crying T^T
    Such a beautiful ending, finally du zi and xiu can be together and nothing gonna stand their way
    God, i love this novel so much 😭😭😭

  27. I didn´t went throught the journey of seven month, I was aware of this novel when you updated the 90 chapter (but I didn´t know we were in the final stages at that moment) when I finally catched up you release the 91.3 chapter, and I was stunned. I feel in love with then, I had so much fun reading Yi Ye Zhi Qiu´s comment…now I´m feeling sad…but no too sad…I´m thinking the last sentence of the author “Maybe the world is a novel” damn…it actually is a novel! So all the story we are reading was created by Xiu in the end?…and what if our own world is a novel, wouldn´t that be cool…(by the way what kind of character I would be? In the best case I´ll be a genius but lazy mob character having an unrequited crush with MC, who would think of me as his little sister, me being popular with younger boys in their teens and lilies sisters…ohh damn…what kind of life I´m having?)

    I love your work…thanks so much, really!

  28. *crying* Xiu suffered so much! And he never stopped loving DZ! I’d say he rewrote the original story so they can be together, and the result is the webnovel we just read. Yi Ye Zhi Qiu’s Mixed Blood is no more, just like in DZ’s comment. I want the couple to be happily ever after!

    *in deep-thinking mode* This ending really gets us thinking about the triad of author, reader, book/hero, and the fine line between fiction, and reality…

    1. Somehow you made a lot of sense with the theory of Xiu himself writing this story. Thought I got it already after finishing this chapter but this insight is pretty neat. Thanks!

  29. It’s very interesting how the roles of creator and creation have switched with this happy ending. Thank you for translating this whole thing!! *cries* I can’t believe it’s over already (extra chapters notwithstanding) I do want to know the logistics of this happy ending though…

  30. I cried. I’m bawling my eyes out. Thank you so much for this amazing story. I’m think I’m going to go sit in a corner and contemplate life for a bit…

  31. This is taking fourth wall to the next level! A commendable piece of writing. What’s even better is, I thought there is no redemption for Xiu. He’s become all cold and callous since the time Du Ze’s comment became responsible for the author’s change of track in the plot, but contrary to my assumptions, Du Ze’s insertion into the story at the moment of transformation is not for nothing after all. Xiu remains a horrible character through and through, but slowly his brutality decreases and by the end (i.e the angel’s trial), it is very neatly revealed that he does indeed have a philosophy. He is not the same sunny boy he had been when Du Ze started reading his story, but he does aim to please his man after all, albeit in his own way.
    All in all, the novel is truly a case study for the three organic entities called author, reader and protagonist that each contribute in building a world. Here, this ‘world’ is just a novel. But you never know…Finding the right protagonist…our own world might as well be a novel.

  32. I think the ending was too sweet, but at least they’re happy. I would have wanted something else to confirm that Xiu is really there. The ending also makes me wonder if Xiu is with the real Du Ze or if he himself became an author and wrote a story with a Du Ze he created from memory.

    1. …let’s not entertain the latter idea. That will be too much of a plot twist. (My heart is hurting already from just thinking about it. Delusional Xiu. <\\\3)

      And our Xiu certainly deserves the best. So. Stahp.

  33. Thank you so much for translating even when you were sick! The novel was really enjoyable and you were a really dedicated translator! If you want to take a break before resuming your other project I’m sure no one would mind. Thanks again for your translation!

  34. Thank you so much! I love this story. I will miss it of course. I don’t come in time to get password so I’m waiting for public post. Love our silly, cute Du Ze and powerful, handsome Xiu 😍😍

  35. Thank you for the complete translation of this story. I’m relieved and glad that there was a happy ending for Du Ze and Xiu. Xiu suffered so much so he deserves to find his most important person.

  36. Thank you so much for your hard work ! This story was so sweet :3
    Wondering what kind of job will suit Xiu though, now that he lives in Japan ? XD

  37. Wahhhhh!!! I can feel their love for each other 😍😍 Wish I have someone like that.. Anyway Thank you for translating this story!! Its totally good.

    Are u going to translate Everyday The Protagonist Wants To capture me from now on??. If so, please do

  38. Happy ending, nice and all, but so many doubts. Did they go back to the other world? Did Xiu restore the world (Since he is a god who destroyed the world, I suppose he can reconstruct it. I mean, he did say before that he could resurrect the others who died. Like Ariel and Old John.)? I mean, it would be boring if they stayed on earth. Mostly because there are no magical creatures here.
    Besides the fact that Du Ze would age. In other words, Xiu would eventually be alone again. Unless if he can restore Du Ze’s age, like rewinding the clock.

    1. XIU IS A GOD. THERE WILL BE A WAY FOR THEM TO BE FOREVER TOGETHER. DONT SINK OUR SHIP.

  39. Thank you so much for this wonderful story! ilu! I’m crying tears of happiness (plus emotional music came on as I read this). He used his powers to go to him since Du Ze can’t go back to him. Together Forever. Just like the play. I wondered how they were going to be together again and I honestly did not think Xiu was just going to break the 4th wall and come out of the novel to go to Du Ze. No wonder the author stopped writing Mixed Blood and said his novel was alive. I’m so happy! You’re wonderful for translating this too! Also reading the speculation above on how he came out was really interesting! Du Ze words are quite powerful if what he says will affect Xiu and the author. In the end, I’m just happy for them though sadly the world was destroyed and the people who traveled with him died (again if he did resurrect them afterwards). I can’t wait for the extras! I wonder how he’ll live in Du Ze’s world. Also just how did he get to Du Ze? Magically transported himself to him due to the blood contract or through the computer somehow? Or is he kinda like spiritually alive but only Du Ze and the author can see him? I don’t think it’ll be explained or not but I’m still curious. THANKS AGAIN!!

  40. I feel like my heart’s been stabbed by such sweetness..im going to miss this sooo much! Thank you so much for translatingnthis awesome novel.. Im crying 😭😭😭😭😭

  41. Oh thank you, thank you for translating this novel! It had been such a long journey but thank you so much for picking up this project and finished it!

    I’m going to be sad now not following them anymore 😢

  42. Noo.. Its ending…waiting for extras… I am a quiet person but one day I come across a novel (yes its BL~)Since then I went to school grinning weirdly and make silly joke everyday…😂😂
    #A bit sad because it was ending…😢
    #THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR TRANSLATING THIS NOVEL
    #hug the translator

  43. Thank you! I love you! I love this novel! I love the author! I am so full of love I don’t even know what to do! Thank you!!!
    (๑>◡<๑)(((o(*゚▽゚*)o)))♡ I wish to hug you and cuddle you and thank you for bringing this into my life! Thank you!!!!

  44. Banzai! Banzai! BANZAI! 🎉🎉🎉
    Even though I’m sad that this story has ended with a few extra chapters, I’m still happy with the HE! Banzai! But still… waaaaaaa!😭 where an I gonna find a good novel like this one! Xiu, Du Ze, I’m glad you’re together but… wuwuwuwu.
    Anyway, thank you for translating this novel to the end! I look forward to other novels you’re translating. Good luck!

  45. Noo it’s ended 😭😭 I want it to continue on and on forever! Can’t stop crying! THANK YOU SO MUCH TRANSLATOR-SAMA!! YOU ARE A GOD THAY HAS BLESSED THIS EARTH AND MY LOWLY SELF !!

  46. I really enjoyed this novel, thank you so much TTvTT
    I feel cheated because how xiu get into the real world is lacking description but nevertheless I’m glad they have their happy ending <3

  47. TRUE LOVE! I’m not c r y i n g T__T

    Huhuhu it looks like the author unknowingly used his power to help Xiu figure out how to travel between worlds. Xiu may have made some threats to make their promised love story a reality!

    Through these shenanigans, the ‘together forever’ from “Du Ze and Xiu will be together forever” has to be possible!

    I wonder if they can go back and forth between Earth and the novel? Or will Xiu just take Du Ze?

  48. thank you very much, I love it from beginning to end.
    I am crying of happiness for them and I pray for the chrysanthemum of Du Ze

  49. I love you!! I love them !!! I love everything!!! T_T I cry with happiness !! I’m happy with a happy end aaaaaaa! yyeeeeaahhh !!!
    Thank you very much !!!!

    1. Looks like it. Du Ze is actually a higher order of being compared to everyone in the Chaos Continent.

  50. CRYING???? NOOOOOOOOO NOONE IS CRYING THIS IS A RACECAR IN MY EYES

    *wipes race car*

    how the heck did Xiu find Du Ze so quickly??? lol
    or does his power still work here??? *lights a candle for Du Ze’s crysanthemum* XDDD

    thank you for all the hard work!! <3

  51. So Xiu literally broke the 4th wall 😂

    I can’t believe we reached the end! It is HE but I’m not satisfied, I need more Du Ze and Xiu time!!! Because they always get separated or in a battle, so they don’t have much time for themselves, they didn’t even have eight races tonight, yet~!

    This is one of my favourite novel, unique plot and characters!

    “YiYeZhiQiu: I can’t write, there is “life” in the other worldcaf342fh2#@”

    Wasn’t the author in the book about to say that the book he wrote had life in it so he can’t write, so he knows what happened and he is probably the “rules” right? Because the rules was trying to line the events as what the Author writes (a.k.a the plot)

    Thank you for having us, Reika! Also thank you for sharing and translating this beautiful novel, without you we wouldn’t have known there was this magnficent novel out there (curse language barrier!!!)

    I look forward to other novels you translate and again thank you for your continuous hardwork! 🙇‍♂️🙇‍♂️🙇‍♂️
    The end feels so rushed with no time for Du Ze and Xiu time but I guess the anti-crabs and sexy eight races tonight chapters might satisfy me.

    I feel so proud, glad and sad at the same time because proud that the couple are safe and are together, glad that it’s HE, and sad because no more chapters to read of this novel except for the exyras 😭😭😭😭😭

  52. I”M SO GLAD I MANAGED TO FINISH THIS. That last chapter just about killed me 😭. This is actually the first novel that I’ve managed to finish with over 50 chapters because I get bored so easily and tired of waiting for new releases, but that was never the case for this novel 🙂 I do love the ending (ESPECIALLY after the last chapter… I would have cried if i wasn’t in public) but I think it was a bit abrupt, so those extra chapters are welcome 🙂
    THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR TRANSLATING THIS 😀 😀 😀 😀

  53. Thank you for your hard work! 😆 The book finally ended huh…… It kind of makes me sad. The ending and the parodys reminds me of the first time I read this story….. I just wanted to find a yaoi novel and found this. That time there was only around chapters 20 something if I remember correctly. When I first read it, I didn’t understand much about what it was saying and I was actually going to drop it back then but since I was bored, I kept on reading. I’m so glad I did. This is one of my few top favorite yaoi novels. Thank you very much for translating this novel. 😊

  54. The only reason I’m satisfied OE/HE or something is because they’re got together finally and it comes full circle cause the title of the novel IS LITERALLY The Reader and Protagonist Definately Have to Be in Love — does that f****** mean that this could be true story!?!?!?
    I’m dead
    It’s okay, I’m not hurting anymore
    My wish has come true
    _:(´ཀ`」 ∠):_
    Hurts kinda good
    _(:3」∠)_

  55. what happens next? I feel like its OE instead of HE 😅😅😅

    I can’t wait for the extras 😊😊😊

  56. Thank you so much for your amazingly consistent updates! 93 chps in 11 months just by yourself = amazing!! I’m so glad du see and the protagonist got to see each other again <3 even if we never know anything else, like if they go back to the novel world, I'm happy! Hahaha the author broke the 4th wall so badly in this chapter

  57. Ah… it looks like a happy ending, but in reality, isn’t it possibly a tragedy in the making?

    Depending on how much of his powers Xiu kept, he might not grow older at all, but Du Ze certainly will… no more zero point restore, the reader would be ridiculously fragile compared to Xiu… if Xiu is immortal, the only semi happy way this can end would be with Xiu taking Du Ze’s Soul and making him undead, or finding him each time he reincarnates and making him fall for him all over again… worst case is if Xiu can’t find him again and has to live in loneliness

    Another possibility is that Xiu ages like normal, in which case other than the initial struggle of finding a job with no official education or documents – and I’m pretty sure he could land a great job with his looks alone, not to mention, he is a genius – he would have no trouble at all. It would be a sweet story of two people who got together through difficult trials and how they stayed together. And maybe meeting after death or rebirth.

    Another possible ending would have been Xiu overcoming the creator god’s shade, breaking the rules’ hold on him, creating a new world and its people, and learning to summon Du Ze in the mean time, maybe even after Du Ze’s death, so that Du Ze would be summoned as the supreme god’s divine companion.

    Thanks a lot for the story!!! Your translation speeds are insanely fast and feel very natural! Thank you for translating!!

    1. Xiu still has powers. Notice how he wrote the text in the air with magic? 🙂

      Thanks for the comment. I love this story.

    2. It’s quite likely Xiu will create his own world. What restricted the old creator god from being a true creator god was the author who was from another world. Now that Xiu has come to this world and still has powers, he will certainly be able to make a new world for Xiu and him to live happily, perhaps even resurrecting the old world.

    3. Xiu is a god. He could just make a world where he and Du Ze can be together forever.

  58. aighsgsdhsgggaahhhh ~~~ *wiggle wiggle wiggle* Thhhat was so gooood. They’re togeetherrr agaiiin. T^T But Xiu is in real world now??? How does that work?? Does he still have his forms? will they go back to the world? is the world really a novel? ah yes it is. I just read it. Ahhh this was a really good novel. Very good, thank you for translating it, I’ve had so few novels carried out to their very end. Thank you thank you. can’t wait for meal time, Du Ze’s mouth is going to hurt from eating so much, ahaha. I want to see Xiu in a modern suit 😀 Go to america and get married~ be together forever~

    THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR TRANSLATING, FOR ALWAYS BEING SO PROMPT AND EFFICIENT, AND NEVER GIVING UP HOPE AND THE WILL TO FINISH, CUZ YOU DID AND UR AMAZING. THAANK YOUUUU

  59. 😦

    The fact that the story is done hasn’t caught up to me yet. It feels like it has always been a part of my life, but now… 😭

    I can’t even imagine what you most me feeling Translator-sama!

    On another note –>

    The end was beautiful, although I’m curious how he did it and had wanted to see when he realized it, it was still made beautifully.

    Haaa, even as I write the text above I can’t stop thinking how this is the end, I’m so not over the fact that I won’t lie in wait to ambush the new chapter any more, this is so hard!

  60. It was so wonderful. Thanks so much for all your hard work. The end was so lovely. Although I’m filled with sorrow a bit still for the time Xiu spent alone. You’re so wonderful Reika 💗😘

  61. “Who knows, maybe we’re in a novel.” (oi oi, don’t go breaking the 4th wall.)
    *Then Xiu breaks through the 4th wall* (………well okay then……Go find your true love Moe Lord!!)

    This is such an amazing novel!! I’m so sad to have it end……
    THANK YOU SO MUCH REIKA FOR TRANSLATING THIS NOVEL!! You sweet, beautiful, magnificent translator-sama! I’m so grateful you decided to translate this novel and continuously work and dedicate so much of your time to give us this blissful novel! *hugs you endlessly*

  62. Well the story ends at last.
    I’m satisfied yet feel empty afterwards. What to do with my life now…
    Strangely I like the fact that how Xiu found Du Ze was left unexplained.
    With or without the ring, of course our Moe Lord will always find his Du Ze, things just as simple as that.
    And thanks a lot for translate and share this awesomeness with everyone.

  63. Thanks for the update and for being awesome!

    I was freaking right! Hahaha. Xui really went out of the novel!😆😆😆

    How did Xui found DuZe so fast. I thought he came out in front of the author?

    Take that GOC!

    But before anything else, where is the scene for angel Xui x DuZe?

    Can’t wait for the extra chappy!

    Fighting!

  64. FINIIIIISSSHHH!! OMG! A warm happy ending! But it looks like its a transmigration-ception kind of thing– a novel within a novel *v*)/ I wonder how Xiu got out? How did he bend the rules? (*cough* we might learn from him *cough*) and such things run in my mind right now.. and YOU DID SUCH AN AMAZING FEAT REIKA-SAN! MOST ESPECIALLY TO OUR AUTHOR 颓!! T.T Thank you very very much for everything! Fightoooo!! <3

  65. T^T It end already! It end so fast, there should be more interaction between the two. Guess we well find more of those “interaction” in the extra. OwO.

    Annnnnnnd…..THANK YOU VERY MUCH TRANSLATOR-SAMA!
    I ‘m very very grateful that you bring us this amazing novel. I just love it so much!! <3

  66. Thank you for your hard work until the end 😉. It has been a wild ride on emotional rollercoster 😆. Cant wait for the extra chapters. I will reread it after all the chapters are complete… ❤

  67. Thank you for introducing us to our moe lord and cute reader~ now I need to think of what should I do with my life now but I can’t wait for your next project and the extra chapter ( I can finally use the password and no more mr crab!! 🦀)

  68. *materializes onions out of thin air and cuts them*
    moe lord finally reunited with our silly cute reader *sobs*

    Thank you for the hard work! (T▽T)
    *crawls back into the abyss to ponder on the meaning of life*

  69. Thank you for all your hard work! The speed of your translations amaze me. The ending is a little abrupt but still a great ending nonetheless. ESPECIALLY THAT TITLE DROP AND 4TH WALL BREAKING

  70. Thank you for sharing this story Reika-sama! I love it so much! When I saw that at the end of the story I can’t say anything and cry… T T

    Du Ze and Xic will be together forever

    Thanks for your hard work! Thank you!

  71. *table flips at the ending* GAAAAHHHHHH!!!!! I’m sorry, but it seems to anti-climatic for me. I wanted more conversation between the two!!!! And the author…poor author ahahaha! Anyways…MY HEART AHHHHH

    I’m gonna have to reread this chapter (and later the book). Thank so so much reika-sama for your wonderful job on this translation. I’m so happy to have found this novel in the middle of you translating it, and having been there for the journey of Du Ze and Xiu. I’m so emotional right now that it’s over (well, there’s still the 8 races play, but yeah). THANKS AGAIN!!!!

  72. First, thank you very much for picking the novel from the beginning to the end, I’m a bit sad that it end but also fulfilled to see it to the end.

    I can only typed how thankful I am for delivering this great novel to us.

    Second… well, thank you very very very(gazillion times) much!!!

  73. Definitely one of my favorite BLs. It’s hard to describe how much heartache and emotions I went through reading it but this ending is definitely satisfying. 🙂

  74. I admit that I couldn’t stop that gushy smile seeing the two of them reuniting in the real world. And that title drop! I did an audible gasp.

    Thank you so much Reika for sharing this story with us all. Your translations were fluid and understandable and had some great footnotes as well. And you were so fast on them that I was worried for your health at certain points. lol

  75. I’ve been reading this story for so long😂😱 wow time really flies. Thanks for the amazing chapters and hard work. I’m glad it’s a happy ending but I hope the extras have more details on how they are living as the ending feels unsatisfying and leaves questions like are they living together in the MC’s world or the other one.

    Again, thanks for all the amazing hard work you have done x

  76. THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH FOR THE UPDATE TRANSLATOR-SAMA IT WAS AWESOME, GREAT, FANTASTIC A MASTERPIECE AND AND. . . I DON’T KNOW!! MY FEELINGS ARE A MESS😭😭 BUT THANK YOUUUUU!! 🙇🏻🙇🏻🙇🏻🙇🏻

  77. Oh my gawd. It finished?!?! Holy moly macaroni, this is too sudden. My thoughts are too scattered to be put into words, I’m just feeling grateful for picking this up and having a translator who was willing to see this project finish to the end. Such a rare translator you are Reika ;-;

    I’m happy to have read your translated projects!

    Thanks for the finale! Looking forward to 🦀 ! 😘

  78. I loved this story from the start to the end. Thanks for translating this master piece. It will be my favorite novel..
    I will be following your next projects. Please take care of yourself! Don’t forget to have fun by this and do not make it a must. Translate it when you want. Good luck with the translating! 🙂

  79. AAAAAHHHHHH! THANK YOU REIKA FOR ALL YOUR HARD WORK! The ending is kind of rushed- i’m really really curious how Xiu came to DuZe’s world and YYZQ’s reaction other than what we read.

  80. The end was a bit rushed or lacking in some finer details I’m interested in knowing, but either way the ending was still perfect to my heart. Just- Aaaaa! That title drop at the end! It really is true love, a love that transcends worlds and universes. I immensely enjoyed the novel and it’s journey. Even tho I joined in reading a bit later at near the end of last year, I feel like I’ve been reading it for ages. Like that feeling of reading a shounen manga or anime and being there right till the end. The passing time of reading is bound to make you feel attached in some way. I should really draw some fanart later for this series to vent out these emotions, gosh.

    Thank you Reika for translating this series! You’ve been far more than generous in updating this series so regularly. It insane how you were updating it each day before, and even now every couple of days. Really. It made me worried for your health and time lol. I’m looking forward to the extras after! If you’re planning on taking a break it’s wwell deserved in my opinion. Once again, thank you for translating this series and bringing us such a wonderful story. It’s been a ride.

  81. Thank you for your hard work, reika-sama!
    And thank you for translating this novel!
    I’m glad they are finally can be together! (TдT)

  82. Fue una hermosa historia.
    Estoy en mi trabajo y no puedo dejar de sonreir como una idiota.
    Muchas gracias por tu trabajo. Seguire viniendo a esta pagina por everyday the…
    Un saludo desde Uruguay.

  83. T_T 😨😨😨😨😨
    I was against reading this ch cause it would mean the novel ended… Now that i finished i liked the simple but moving end. I wished for more love and drama but this simple one felt refreshing. I think i will start again from the beginning (^v^)💖

  84. Oh my.. It’s ending.. It’s quite touching and I almost cried, but heck my curiosity win because of what would happen to the two of them,
    what am I gonna do with my life now, I was shocked, I’ve been reading this since May? XD that is some dedication that you have
    Thank you so much for everyone who worked on TRAP!! I love you aaaaalll
    And last thing, I wonder if you would compile them into a single file, a pdf file or anything at all? I really want to re-read the whole story and have them with me all the time ..

  85. Question: Does Xiu still have his powers? If not, does that not mean there can never be eight races any night?

  86. I wonder how Du Ze will be explaining all of this to his mother. 😀 Looking forward to the extras. Thanks for translating. 🙂

  87. Thanks for the chapter! I loved the story, although the end seemed a bit abrupt. Can’t wait for the extras… I think Xiu didn’t destroy the world because he knew Du Ze would be sad…

  88. Thank you for the chapter, and the story! You did an awesome job of it. So… do we get to see Du Ze introducing his sweetie to his family?

  89. Aaaah. How sweet. And they lived together forever. The Reader and the Protagonist. T_T Crying tears of joy.

  90. That ending made me a little emotional. I loved this story so much! Thank you for translating it!!
    It was such an enjoyable ride, the contrast between Du Ze’s thought process and his expression always made me laugh. Plus the romance was cute and hot at the same time >///<
    Lastly you did an amazing job translating this, your comments about the story and those parody chapters complemented the experience. I think a simple thank you does not fully describe my gratitude but really I have no more to say:
    THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR TRANSLATING THIS!

    -A Phantom Reader

  91. ………………..Now what am I going to do with my life………..? *stares blankly into the horizon*

    (╥﹏﹏﹏﹏﹏﹏╥)

  92. Thank you for the story! I… rather expected an abrupt end, given the length of the novel, and this was a fairly nice one, as far as that goes. That’s a pretty nasty wait for Xiu that’s alluded to, though.

  93. They gonna be happy together, good for them.. the ending kinda feels abrupt to me since how on earth xiu come out of the novel ? And yes we need epilogue of how our protagonist gonna be living in Du Ze’s world. Will there be a short explanation?

    But the ending is the most important so i can ignore the little prosess.. it’s great that it is HE and wonderful of you to finish this novel, this is the first transmigation into novel style that i read and actually end..

    thank you so much.. ❤

    will wait patiently for your next project.. i already give review and rating for this novel on NU, best of luck for all of your projects.. XD

    1. Thanks for your support (and thanks everyone else, too). Yes there are extra chapters after this one.

    2. since god of creation could summon someone, the supreme god can be assumed to reverse-summon himself since he is stronger than GOC and “beloved of the “rules””

  94. Hmmm, it a little disappointing that it doesn’t explain how Xiu realized the truth of his world and how he managed to escape and find Du Zu but I really, really like that part of the author’s conversation and the ending title. Th Reader and Protagonist Definitely Have To Be In True Love, a story of Du Ze and Xiu will be together forever. It’s perfect.

  95. U r da best. Seriously I respect all da hardwork for this novel. Tq sooo… Much…. Shoot. I didn’t think bout the author power but if i had known it earlier, i want to bash the author to make xiu appear earlier.

  96. I wasn’t expecting this part of dialogue author-editor but it was funny. I pitied that editor though…
    I was also a bit sad at the fact Xiu still had to pass billion of years alone and I’m curious if he really destroyed the world or not… he probably did right?
    Anyway, thank you very much for translating the story. I really liked it. Thank you.

  97. Finally they reunited again!!!
    I feel so happy since they keep getting separated and finally after a lot of struggle they can be together in the end!!
    Now it’s time for eight race tonight!! 😆😆
    Prepare yourself Du Ze! 😏😏

    Thank you very much for translating this gems! Thank you for dedicating your time and energy to share this for us fans that can’t read Chinese! You always made my day this past 7 month with the chapters update.. Once again, thank you very much for all you have done to complete translating this story 🙏🙏

  98. Ahhhhhh… so bittersweet to see this novel end T_____T
    I’ll miss it dearly. (So looking forward to reading the extras… after that then I’ll really feel lost)

    Awesome novel. Thank you so much for translating it! And editors for editing, etc =P
    Loved the characters and all their interactions. Really curious as to how Eric turned out and what the other members of the motley crew are doing before the world ended…

    *Waits eagerly for the extra chapters *

  99. It has been a wonderful journey, with laughter and tears, and obstruction by the crab. Thank you for taking your time to translate this. The story was beautiful.
    Where are these onion cutting ninjas coming from?

  100. HAPPY END!!!! *Love Novels by Bibi is playing in the background*

    I’m so happy and sad at the same time.
    Thanks for the hardwork in translating this novel.

    Now proceed to “eight races tonight” my dear!!!~

  101. Wonder how did Xiu come to Du Ze world? Thank you so much for translating this entire novel!! Look forward to the extras (especially with no 🦀🦀🦀). 😆->😭 (me sad that this novel is ending)

    1. It’s not shown how it happened but did you notice this?

      Yi Ye Zhi Qiu typed out that “Well, the protagonist found out that I was the one responsible for abusing him so he climbed out of the novel to kill me.”

      … Then it came true! Is it because he is the one who is the actual creator of Xiu’s world?! Author power???

    2. This is just my guess but remember how Xiu’s demise started with Du Ze’s comment? That it all started with Du Ze? I’m assuming that Du Ze has a part in how Xiu’s world works too. And so, Du Ze’s comment in the last chapter was the trigger for Xiu to be able to get out of that world and come to Du Ze’s world.
      [Internet User: Duzi comment: “Mixed Blood”, Rating: 1, Chapter 275 Review: The protagonist was angry and couldn’t endure the author’s abuse anymore so he came to this world; he killed the author and destroyed the world while doing so.]
      Well, this is just my guess. 😊

  102. No shut up.. .im not crying you’re crying TvT ahhhhhhh this was so cuuuutttte I’m both sad and happy with this I don’t know how I should feel or what to do now that it’s over. Thank you for translating this and sharing it and everything that you done for us this entire journey!
