Chapter 96 – The Reader and Protagonist Definitely Have to Be in True Love

xiu duze

Extra 3: Devil’s Proof

“Do you know that boy from computer class?”

“You mean …?”

“Seems to be called Du … something? Du Ze? I think his name is Du Ze.”

“Oh, him! Yes, of course, I know about him. I heard that his hearing is bad and that’s he’s a freak who’s always talking to himself or doing strange stuff. The people in his class aren’t close to him.”

“Do you know why? My friend is in the same class as him and he told me a secret. In fact, that boy seems to be able to see unusual things.”

“Unusual? … You mean he’s psychic?”

“Bingo! That guy is always ‘talking to himself’ so people always avoid him since there are ‘unusual phenomenon’ around him.”

“Do you really believe those rumors?”

“It’s not a rumor! Did you know that last week, the people from the Chinese World Trade Center threw an iron disk and broke a window? Du Ze was sitting beside that window but he wasn’t hurt at all.”

“So miraculous!”

*********

Du Ze listened to the conversation between the two boys in the hallway and looked at the person who had turned him into a campus myth.

Noting Du Ze’s gaze, Xiu smiled and asked, “What’s wrong?

Du Ze shook his head then suddenly realized that this one of those things that made people say he was “doing strange stuff.” He froze.

Since he began going to school, Xiu has invisibly followed him. Others can’t see Xiu but instinctively avoid the place where Xiu is, thus creating a lot of strange rumors. A silly, cute person thought that the students who saw him right now would only see a person shaking his head at nothing. They would think that this person forgot to take his meds today; what a fool!

Du Ze was right – shaking his head at nothing had called attention to him.

“You there – the one sitting by the window.” The advanced mathematics teacher rapped his knuckles on the podium. “You’re shaking your head, do you have a problem with what I just said?”

The whole class turned their heads to watch as the black-haired youth silently stood up, his face impassive. The teacher’s brow wrinkled as got ready to teach this boy a lesson, but before he could do so, he stopped – he seemed to feel that danger was near, as though a beast was eyeing him. Suddenly weak at the knees, the teacher leaned on the podium and smiled dryly: “Fine, sit down, sit down.”

Du Ze had half-lowered his body when he stopped abruptly.

“Xiu …!” Du Ze silently mouthed the beastkin’s name. Just as Du Ze was about to sit down, Xiu slid behind him and sat down on the chair. Now, if Du Ze sat down, he would be sitting on Xiu’s lap.

Xiu reached out to embrace Du Ze. In order to not stand out too much, Du Ze was forced to half sit down on the beastkin’s lap. Since he was seated at the last row, it wasn’t too obvious.

Put me down.

Xiu glanced at Du Ze’s note. Not only did he not put Du Ze down, but the beastkin wrapped his tail around Du Ze’s arm.

“Listening to him is too boring.” Xiu stroked the back of Du Ze’s neck. “Why don’t we do something interesting?”

“I’m in class.”

“Let’s leave and I’ll teach you instead.” Xiu said indifferently: “Yesterday I changed into my human form. These things are not difficult to learn.”

— Hey, don’t carelessly pull aggro! All the students who have failed advanced mathematics will hate you for casually saying such an outrageous statement!

“Or I can give you the answers to the exams.”

… No, don’t shamelessly tempt me this way. The worst thing about it is that he almost wanted to give in!

Du Ze could only watch helplessly as Xiu used his tail to close his book. The beastkin’s hands went under Du Ze’s shirt and started caressing his bare skin.

“You don’t have to move.” Xiu licked Du Ze’s ears. “Just feel me.”

“… !”

Du Ze leaned over the table and covered his face with his arms lest he should reveal any strange expressions or make any strange noises. Fortunately, Xiu didn’t go too far. He just hugged, kissed, licked, and bit Du Ze but he didn’t leave any obvious traces.

Ah, Moe Lord! QAQ

“Du Ze, didn’t you sleep last night? Is that why you’re lying on the table?” The classmate who came to collect the student’s homework asked.

Du Ze’s seemingly icy, sad gaze shifted sideways. “… I didn’t sleep well.”

That’s the truth.

“I can see that.” His classmate was very understanding and nodded. “Was it because of the mosquitos? The back of your neck is full of red marks.”

Du Ze instinctively rubbed the back of his neck. The gnome behind him chuckled and Du Ze’s ears turned red.

After thinking about it carefully, Du Ze decided to put forward a small, uh, suggestion to Xiu.

“Make myself visible?” Xiu asked.

Du Ze nodded solemnly. He was “punished” by the Moe Lord who was dissatisfied with his distraction. However, when Xiu is visible to others, he can’t do such things to him in public. Another advantage is that Xiu won’t be able to use most of his forms. The beastkin, gnome, elf and dragon forms would have to use some sort of disguise to hide their features while the demon and angel can hardly show themselves at all. In short, only the human and undead forms are convenient to show to others.

Xiu in his human form is quite gentle while the undead form doesn’t bully him so this plan is perfect –

“A ghost!”

A silly, cute reader had completely forgotten the deadly effect of his family’s Moe Lord’s gorgeous appearance. Yi Ye Zhi Qiu had made his protagonist the type whose looks are like a weapon of mass destruction. When Du Ze and a blond youth who was wearing casual clothes went to the next class upstairs, a silly, cute person found that the way was blocked by a huge crowd of people.

“Hello, which course are you taking?”

“Do you want to be my friend? Here are my contact details!”

“… Ah! I’ve seen you in my dreams!”

Du Ze stared at the young man who was looking at Xiu with an expression of excitement on his face – yes, it was a man who declared that Xiu was his dream lover.

Has the Moe Lord’s charisma reached the point where both men and women can’t resist his charms?

Xiu did not speak as he pulled Du Ze away from the crowd. No one dared to block the footsteps of the blond youth.

Even as they walked away, Du Ze could still hear the young man shouting, “I really saw you – weren’t you looking for someone called ‘Du Ze’?”

“…?!”

Du Ze looked at Xiu in shock. Xiu smiled at Du Ze and admitted: “Well, he did see me – I summoned him.”

Summoned…?

“After destroying the world, I discovered the truth of the world. When I tried to leave the world, I was constantly summoning people in this world and trying to find you,” he said.

It was a short sentence but the information it contained made Du Ze’s heart feel heavy. Ever since Xiu came to him, the two of them hadn’t mentioned the world of “Mixed Blood.” The topic of their separation seemed to be taboo, something neither one of them can discuss.

He wanted to ask Xiu how he had been after he left. He wanted to ask whether Xiu really destroyed the world. He wanted to ask how Xiu came here. He wanted to ask a lot of questions but they were so happy now that he didn’t want to know if their current happiness was built over a pile of bones. Du Ze opened his mouth and made a strange sound. It was as though it wasn’t his own voice that asked Xiu: “What happened to you?’

Xiu stared at Du Ze for a moment then shook his head. “It doesn’t matter.”

— It’s meaningless.

His heart ached and felt even heavier. Du Ze looked at the calm Xiu. This answer was more painful than hearing “it was bad.”

Seeing that his beloved was troubled, Xiu stretched out a hand to circle the back of Du Ze’s neck and smiled reassuringly: “We’re together now.”

— Yes, they’re together now, so no more panicking, no more running away.

Du Ze and Xiu looked at each other. Du Ze asked, “Did you summon other people?”

“En.” Xiu said: “After learning the truth of the world, I began to try to break out of the world but I didn’t have the qualifications to do it. That is to say, I didn’t have permission from the creator of the world so all I could do was wait. During this time I studied summoning. I tried to summon you but because the ‘conditions’ seemed to be wrong, the people I summoned were not the person I wanted.”

Xiu spoke casually but Du Ze couldn’t help but remember the vision he had before. A chill spread from his heart as he thought of how he had seen Xiu amidst the ruins of a destroyed world, alone in the darkness as he waited to receive the “permission from the creator” that might never come.

When Xiu was forced to wait four years for Du Ze to emerge from the Wheel of Time, he lost his reason. What must it have been like for him to wait for such a long time? Du Ze dared not think too long about it because it was too painful to imagine how Xiu felt during that seemingly endless time in the darkness of a destroyed world.

“You … destroyed the world?” Before he realized it, Du Ze had asked the question.

Xiu didn’t answer him directly but suddenly asked another question. “Do you know ‘the devil’s proof’?”

Seeing Du Ze shake his head, Xiu explained: “The devil is an imaginary creature. To prove his existence is easy if one were to find him. On the other hand, proving that he doesn’t exist is almost impossible. After all, just because no one has found him yet doesn’t mean that he isn’t hiding somewhere. People can say that ‘yes the devil exists but I just haven’t found him yet’. I always believed that you are somewhere and I just haven’t been able to find you yet. I looked for you in the Chaos Continent for thousands of years.”

Xiu’s deep blue eyes flashed darkly. “Then I started to destroy the world bit by bit, destroying places where you might be hiding, until you had no more room to hide.”

Du Ze stopped breathing for a while as he listened. He thought of his vision and what Xiu was saying now – Xiu didn’t destroy the world because he was tricked?

“By destroying the world, I found out the truth – since the world didn’t have you in it but I remembered you, I realized that you probably came from outside the world.” Xiu said softly: “That was how I discovered the truth of the world.”

The God of Creation discovered “the truth of the world” because he found out that his origin story was false. Xiu found “the truth of the world” because of his absolute power and memory.

Xiu found out the truth, got the qualifications, and was finally able to come to this world. The price was the destruction of the world.

Xiu stared at Du Ze’s sad expression. “What are you thinking?”

“Ariel, Enoch … how are they?”

Even though he destroyed the world, his companions who had been with him for such a long time should not have been destroyed.

“Do you want to see them?” Xiu asked.

Du Ze nodded involuntarily.

“Then close your eyes.”

Du Ze automatically obeyed Xiu’s instructions. Even with his eyes closed he could feel the light behind his eyelids become extremely bright.

“Open your eyes.”

When Du Ze opened his eyes and saw a wealthy-looking city with building in the Baroque style, he immediately became speechless. This is …

The Sky City?

Du Ze’s pupils constricted as he looked unblinkingly at a group of people who seemed to be waiting for someone.

When the short-haired thief noticed that they had arrived, the expression on his face became full of excitement. “Hey! Why did it take so long for you to come back? This thief was growing mold waiting for you!”

“Little Master, Master Du Ze, long time no see.”

“Lord Xiu, welcome back.”

“Du Ze, I missed you so much!”

“Chirp~”

A golden-red bird flew over the bright sky, softly falling on Du Ze’s shoulder. The Fire Phoenix lovingly leaned its head against its mother Du Ze’s cheek.

Du Ze stared at everyone around him, turning his head mechanically and looking stupidly at the blond youth beside him. His thoughts were a mess.

“When I went to your world I met the creator of this world.” Xiu chuckled and said: “I took over creative control of this world from him.”

The Supreme God kissed the eyebrows of the black-haired youth and greeted his only lover. “Welcome back, Du Ze.”

********

At the end of a writer’s press conference, Jinyi finally cornered a ha-ha beast.

When he came face to face with his editor, Yi Ye Zhi Qiu’s attitude was very friendly as he cheerfully explained: “I gave ‘Mixed Blood’ to someone else.”

“Who?!”

“The protagonist of ‘Mixed Blood’.”

“…” Jinyi was speechless for a time then said: “Are you still sticking to your ‘this world is a novel’ fantasy? If you are going to write a new novel about this subject, I’ll give you my full support.”

Yi Ye Zhi Qiu said “ha-ha” then asked: “Have you heard of the ‘brain in a vat’ concept?”

“What is that?”

“Let’s say your brain is cut off from the body by an evil scientist and put into a vat full of a nutrient fluid that allows your brain to live. The brain’s nerve endings are connected to a computer that transmits information to your brain in a way that allows you to maintain a completely normal-seeming life. To you, people, objects, the sky, and everything around you – the whole world is there. Your thoughts, feelings, and senses are all there. Your brain can also be influenced by someone from the outside, adding a memory – like a first love or something – that you can’t forget.”

Yi Ye Zhi Qiu saw that Jinyi was completely confused.

“How can you be sure that you aren’t in this condition right now?”

“How can you be sure … that you’re not in a novel?”

Request:

Can you do me a favor? If you use NU, can you recommend The Reader and Protagonist Definitely Have to Be in True Love whenever appropriate? Thanks!

recommend me

In fact, if you use NU, I encourage you to go recommend BL stories for the BL projects. Not just mine, I would like the other translators who have BL projects to get more of a mention. This will encourage more translators to consider BL stuff. Thanks.

Final thought: 

Xiu: “After learning the truth of the world, I began to try to break out of the world but I didn’t have the qualifications to do it. That is to say, I didn’t have permission from the creator of the world so all I could do was wait.” <– The reader might be physically weak but his anti-fan/black powder fan strategies are second to none!

Xiu was only able to break out of the world because the author read Du Ze’s comment then (in the QQ chat) wrote that “the protagonist found out that I was the one responsible for abusing him so he climbed out of the novel to kill me.” This was the permission Xiu needed. For all his power, Xiu was helpless to find Du Ze until Du Ze used his super anti-fan powers.

Du Ze is really the best MC! And Xiu is the perfect lover for him.

********

My Answers to Reader’s Questions:

These are all my opinion only, you don’t have to take it as fact.

Why were the spirit animals scared of Du Ze?

It wasn’t directly stated but it was probably because as a reader he is a higher order of being.

Is Du Ze immortal now?

I think he is. Xiu got “creative control” over the novel and he can now just give Du Ze a godhead. We also saw from a previous chapter that even when Du Ze died, Xiu was able to resurrect him. The sap of the Tree of Life also makes a person “perfect” physically. But that is all in the world of the novel. I’m totally convinced that in the novel, Du Ze is immortal.

The real question is whether Du Ze is immortal in the “real world.” The extras did show that Xiu still had his powers and items even in the real world. Therefore, Du Ze is probably also immortal in the real world.

Will Du Ze ever get stronger?

Um. This was asked several times and I have to say no. LOL.

One of the most unique things about this story is that the reader who was transported into the world of the novel never gets the cliche “OP cheat” power. Unlike others, Du Ze is content to watch as Xiu gets stronger and stronger. He helps Xiu out but he himself remains fairly distanced from the actual fighting. It’s kinda realistic since Du Ze is a normal student, not a fighter.

What happened to the others?

Thankfully, this extra chapter showed us that Old John, Enoch, Ariel, etc. are all alive and well.

Are Jack and Vieruodis dead?

They weren’t shown in the extras but Enoch said he was in the Tower of God looking for a way to help them. I’m guessing Xiu probably helped them out.

If you have any questions, ask and I will answer!

*******

I just wanna say that I absolutely love this meta-type ending.

  1. Thank you so much for translating this novel! ♥️♥️ It was one of the best BL novel I’ve ever read. The plot and characters are so loveable and relatable. Du Ze and Xiu character goes so well together, I also felt like I’m also in their world XD This novel gave so much happiness 😄♥️♥️

  2. That last question make me think for a second ,haha, being inside a novel huh, then maybe I’m just a Mob character then ,hehe. And I’m happy that all their comrades are back again, but Eric is still in my mind and I’m not sure if Xiu help them too…. I mean….a lot of years have passed..maybe they lived their life to the fullest and died normally? Also, I wonder if all their friends became immortal too.

  3. I love your final thought explaining how Du Ze contributed to giving Xiu the power he needed to climb out of the novel.

    Time is an interesting phenomenon and really does not exist in a traditional sense in the novel. Time in the story goes much faster than the time on Earth, and yet the time in the story should go much slower than the time on Earth based on author update time. Multiple states of time seem to co-exist — or, the author created the world and is now just writing about it, so what the author writes doesn’t alter the world but reflects it… Though at the same time, we see the author does have power and can change the world, so that hypothesis would at least be somewhat false. Perhaps both action and intention matter and function separately: the author intended that Xiu become the Supreme God, so that ending existed without being written, but could also be altered by the author. Then there is the fact that thousands of years also existed outside of the author’s influence where Xiu was looking for Du Ze, etc. so time in the novel, compared to Earth, can be faster, slower, and still… Discussing how time works here could really turn into a metaphysical debate, haha. Apologies if I’m not making much sense.

    I’m really glad I was able to read this novel. Thank you very much for sharing it with all of us!

    On a side note, I wanted to bring up two things:
    1. Is it possible to move the “Leave a Comment” box to the top of the comments section? It’s not so bad when I’m on my desktop and I can drag the cursor past 100+ comments, but on a mobile phone it makes for a lot of scrolling and may discourage people from leaving comments.
    2. I have both Adblock and Ghostery on my desktop. After a while I thought to turn Adblock off, but I didn’t see any ads on your site until I read on my mobile. Once I whitelisted with Ghostery, the ads showed up. I’m a bit irritated that I didn’t think of this until so many chapters in, because if you are getting ad revenue to help support your site then I want to make sure you’re actually getting it. I imagine there may be a fair number of people like me out there. If you think it would be worth it, maybe consider reminding people to whitelist your site through all browser extensions (not just typical Adblock)?

    Thank you!

    1. Thanks for reading and leaving a comment. Sadly, I have no idea how to put the comment box higher. This seems to involve getting into the raw coding of the website and modifying that but I don’t want to do it since if anything went wrong, I wouldn’t know how to fix it.

  4. Seeing “The End” at the place where it used to be “Next chapter” gave me mixed feelings. I want more of this but it’s also so satisfying that it ends here.

    Thank you for translating this. ♥️♥️

  5. Thank you for the translations! I admit that it took me a while to get into, due to the slangs and terms. But I’m glad I continued as the last part was especially exciting and touching. While these types of plots tend to have a self-aware MC (of how a novel works), it was more interesting since we have selected novel characters growing aware of this too. I did like how it ended with the author also questioning this idea. Thank you once again!! ♡

  6. THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH FOR TRANSLATING THIS!!! OH MY GOD I REALLY LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS STORY!!!!!
    but now my heart feel so empty QAQ

    that last moment where the author talks about brain in a vat makes me wonder though.. am i actually a living person? or am i just merely a novel character…?

    again, thank you very much for translating this wonderful story. i shed many tears because of this novel!!!! QAQ

    I also really loooved the ending!!! thank you translator!!! I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!

  8. thank you for translating, this novel was amazing and it was a whole journey reading this!! i’m glad i read this as my first

  9. This novel was TRASH! The reader was weak AF and seriously he was so dumb; I’m glad the story is over, I don’t even know why I read it. Garbage like this should not be translated.
    Xiu was horrible as well. Will never read this novel again or recommend it, ever!

    [Just kidding! Just being an anti-fan here, like Du Ze.]

    This novel was AMAZING! The reader was weak but that made him so much more relatable and different and he was so silly, cute that all I could think was “Kawaii! The moe-ness is killing me!”
    I’m sad that this story is over and I’m glad I read it. I’m so glad this was translated, amazing job translators!
    Xiu was adorable, I just wanted to give him a hug so many times (Du Ze as well!). I have read this novel many times already and will keep doing so, especially the steamy scenes. Recommend it to all BL/Danmei/Yaoi fans I find.

  10. Thanks for this wonderful novel! I just picked it up and finished it.
    Translator-sama, can you please make a compilation of all the Xiu images?

  11. Thank you very much for this translation and your hard work! That was great! I don’t speak English very well yet, but it was easy for me to read this text. I also read your other translations on this site. They’re beautiful too! I feel like my English is getting better and better.

  12. Oh…wow??? I never expected to stay until the end and end up loving this novel. I didn’t think highly of it at first but it got better and better as the story progresses!!
    So now i will give an anti-fan style review in honor of du ze’s strength as an anti-fan(im not good at roasting sorry):
    Wtf is this shitty novel with it’s overpowered main lead and weak ass protagonist?? The main lead is so edgy it stabbed my eye and bled it to death so i wont have to look at him anymore. And the protag is too weak he can’t even handle a few rounds of diddling the doodoo and can’t fight, only screaming “XIUUUUUUUUUUU” idk if he’s worried abt the main lead or telling him to fuzz off. This novel sucks i hope the author chockes on spicy mcdonalds french fries (i don’t mean any of that ily author and thank you so much for translating this novel)

  13. ….. can I like get a hug.
    I’m so lonely now.
    I hate endings in novels.
    It’s like saying goodbye to a dear friend.
    WAHHHHHHHHHHHH
    I LOVE YOU DU ZE OMG.
    Waaaaahhhhh
    XIU I LOVE YOU TOO. Oh my god.
    I’m dead.
    I’m dying.
    I’m crying.
    Oh my lord.
    Wahhh.
    It was so beautiful.
    I want more extras I WANT MORE STUFF.
    I want more daily life crap!!!!
    Like hello? After that crap we were put through. And time after time again where XIU suffered.
    Like hello. CAN WE GET MORE FLUFF?! Is that so hard to ask for?
    Gods. When I write a novel. Ima make sure there’s loads of extra fluff chapters.

    1. *gives a bear hug*
      I know right? We will have to say goodbye to our reader and his protagonist… *cries*
      I myself loved it so much. It was very beautiful and very much realistic too. I’m glad they are together now.
      (I’m so glad I waited for it to complete before starting readings it XD, I would have died waiting otherwise.)
      I wish we readers can always have such good stories, and protagonists to support.
      Thanks for translating this, Translator-sama.
      Yours truly,
      Sly.

    2. Ugh. Ugh. YOU BEAR HUG JUST REIGNITED THE PAST TEARS AND HARDSHIPS I WENT THROUGH WITH THIS NOVEL!
      I’m crying again! Oh my lord.

      -BEARS HUGS BACK AND SOBS uncontrollably-

      Ugh yes. Yes. Ugh. I missss these guys so much!!
      Gods!! Gods!!
      Best part though is that Du Ze is straight but turned gay for him. Which is so beautiful!
      AND STILL I WANT AND NEED MORE FLUFF!
      I’m dying at that semi satisfying ending!!
      Like ARE THEY IMMORTAL NOW AND HOW GODLY IS XIU?!?! Ugh I’m dead.

  14. I really anjoy this novel! Definitely will read it again!! Liked the ending very much, very pressed about it. Just a little sad about God of Creation destiny to be cannon fodder. I hope our ML saved him too. Ty translators, you guys are awesome!! ♡♡♡♡♡

  15. Wow I just finished binge reading the whole series.

    You did a really great job with the translation and I am eternally grateful that you share this with the rest of us ♥♥♥ Thank you so so much!

    Dat ending tho, when a novel character who is the author of a novel that manifested into another reality asks you whether your world is a novel (☉ₒ☉) Novelception!!! Really love it!!!

  16. This is the 2nd cnovel ive read and completed. I binge read this for days. Thank you so much for translating this. Im excited for your other works

  17. wow just….wow..

    i didnt expect that ending and i gotta say im awed

    first of all, im gonna make this short and say that im truly thankful for all your efforts on translating this novel to the very end!

    the extras are so frick fracking adorable i cant stop squealing, even if im inthe middle of class. hahahahhaha like that i cant stop laughing because eight races night really happened hahahaha.
    my nose was so red and my eyes are misty…im really happy they got their beautiful end.

    the end that author made is so…amazing….yi ye zhi qui is…adorable. i…I just have to say, ookay!!??!!

    anyways, the end… the end …. im just speechless because i didnt expect it. those breaking the fourth wall-ish stuff is really cool and i..just want more Du Ze and Xiu moments (T.T)

  18. I think that this is the absolute best light novel I have read. I never really expected such depth from light novels – read too many wuxia and fantasy genres to the point that I started becoming limited in my own expectations…it’s really a joy to have read this (especially all the nsfw parts ho ho) I think it pinged every one of my ‘moe’ points.

    It’s clever, but the main character didn’t have to be clever (Xiu is an acknowledged and allowed Gary Stu haha).
    It’s NOT cliche, although it acknowledges all the cliche points.
    It’s super duper meta, with a reader mindset that’s exactly like a real reader mindset. It makes me think that the author is probably an avid reader himself – if so, respect to this fellow reader!

    The ending was absurd and yet everything we wished for given to us in a bizarre manner. Xiu maintained a ‘good-hearted’ blackened image by not slaughtering the people who supported him. He didn’t have to give up any power for his wish. And Du Ze and Xiu did not have a Chang ‘e and Hou Yi ending.

    Although it didn’t give a clear reply to the question of whether Xiu ends up becoming ‘redeemed’, I think that it was even better. Xiu is actually well and truly blackened with no regret. Just like Ariel and Muir, as long as the one he cares for wishes it, he will do so, if he doesn’t, he won’t.

    In fact, if you think about it…Du Ze is the real chosen one of the world. After all, he got everything he wanted without having to fight, without having to struggle…just standing by and quietly watching. There was no need for him to level up – because everything was given to him in the end. XD

  19. I enjoy this type of novel most as the author limits themselves appropriately to give the world that they create a sense of realism not often or easily found in stories, which makes finding one just that much better. I sincerely thank you for translating this novel and anticipate your next project.

  20. I just finished the whole story last night and wanted to thank you for the amazing effort you made in translating all of it! Like, translating so much and so quickly! I am super impressed and really grateful that you shared this translation.

    Now that it’s over, I’ll miss reading about Du Ze and Xiu. But I am glad that things wrapped up so happily and that in the extras, Du Ze can even go back to the world of Mixed Blood whenever he wants and see Ariel, Old John and everyone else. For a while I thought that the only way for him to be with Xiu was really to give up on his old life and stay in the world of Mixed Blood.

    I think the most fun part was Du Ze constantly trying hook up Xiu with one of his harem members and they misunderstandings that constantly ensued (the bit with Heidi cracked me up the most). I also really liked that even when the story goes past Du Ze’s knowledge of the webnovel, the reader can still see what the original harem story was like.

    Du Ze being deaf was a pretty unique twist and I do like that it had the kind of setbacks one would expect, with occasional moments where it surprisingly works in his favor.

    Xiu is a good spoof on the whole Gary Stu Go model protagonist you see in many isekai stories. The guy is truly ridiculous, even if he rejected all of his harem in favor of being with Du Ze only.

    So yeah thank you again! I stumbled into the world of Chinese danmei web novels very recently and it’s great that this was one of the first things I read.

  21. SO GOOOOOD!!! The meta ending the double meanings in everything and the parallels.. gawd it’s just so wonderfully written and the translation is (as far as I can tell) perfect! Easily understood and the explanations of things that don’t translate well still give us readers insight into the original jokes and references. This novel was an incredible ride I just want to thank you so much for sticking to it!!

  22. Thank you for all the hard work! I ve read all 94 chapters within 4 days! It started so slow, I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to pull it though but in the end…it was magnificent and enlightening!
    I found following references to other subjects:
    Flight club (yes, believe it or not). Anyone remembers the quote…”only if We have lose everything, we are free to do everythingl”. I thought of Xui how he lost everything and everyone by betrayal and in the end he was free of his morals and social pressure. He is not bad, he is not good, he is an Anarchist.

    Same for the tower of angels. When Eric gave away his feathers and the people thanked him…I found myself suddenly in a very difficult moral position.. as I had to interpret that world as such: the western countries exploit countries as Africa (as collecting light) and then turn around and donate some coins back (Eric donates feathers). We do it out of the good will be don’t realize the whole picture and our own role in it. I remembered a story where many stores for shoes had to close in Africa. Apparently Nike and Adidas donated so many shoes to the people that no one felt the need to buy from local stores anymore. In short term it wasn’t nice but in long term we destroyed the economy. Are we doing the same by donations with our “hero complex”? Are we holding people back to discover their own strength?

    But then again…isn’t it “just” a novel? Haha

    As you see, this part gave me a lot to think about.
    I do not think I have to explain as well the small homage to “never ending story” and “matrix” 🙂

    Btw…I think DuZe had no special power regarding the beasts. It was just his eyes that been scary like one of the predators. E.g. right at the beginning when he meets the beast and stares at it…and it runs away. They do tend to say that animals can smell predators. As Duze didn’t show any fear, they all ran for their life 🙂

    I would have liked to know hat happened to Eric. I feel bad for him.

    Thanks again and till the next story!
    The reader

    1. Thanks for the comment! I should read Fight Club or at least watch the movie though, sadly, I’ve already been spoiled about it.

  23. So glad I found this!!! I just feel honored to have been able to read this magnificent translation. Thank you.

  24. Wow, what an awesome ride into a fantastic world! Great characters and world building. What was particularly charming and unique about this novel is Du Ze himself. His deafness and social awkwardness that resulted from his disability are an integral part of his characterisation but never allowed to overshadow the optimistic, hopeful, positive person that he is (trolling of online authors notwithstanding). The epilogues show him progressing with his life and studies; still having to face social barriers but resolutely continuing his journey. And now he has Xiu as part of his life too! <3

    Thank you a million times for your excellent translation and editing. I can't imagine the number of hours of hard work that must have gone into this. Wow! The translation is top-notch and very readable. The writing flows well and captures, I think, much of the essence and humour of the original novel, which cannot have been an easy task. I also liked the informative footnotes at the bottom of each chapter. I would not have been able to enjoy this novel without your hard work, so thank you, thank you, thank you!

    P/S: A special THANK YOU for the NSFW chapters. Those must have been difficult to translate, but you did an amazing job and gave us sizzling hot chapters!

    1. 🙂 I’m glad you left a comment. Sometimes I am not sure anyone is still reading this. Thanks.

  25. Bless you BLOODY FUCKING SOUL (Please excuse my language), thank you so much for translating this novel it was really great and I binge read it in two-three days. I don’t know why I never picked this up before, I had it saved on my reading list but was never motivated enough to finish it all and now I deeply regret leaving it lying for so long because the story was really good (and complete! oOo) Thank you so much for translating (I know I’m repeating but my heart is crying in happiness asdfghjkl)

    1. Glad you liked it. I binge translated it lol every day/every other day for several months. It was that good.

  26. Thank you for putting effort and translating this amazing novel… That was a great adventure for me <3 I loved every single word and every single chapter <3.
    I feel so blessed finding this hidden gem <3

  27. Thank you for translating. Always sad to see a novel you lost yourself in, and. Such a bittersweet feeling.

  28. Thank you for your translation. I love this novel. Your translation are easy reading i will wait the next novel from you.

  29. AAAAHHH THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR KIND TRANSLATIONS ❤ HOPE TO SEE MORE WORKS FROM YOU~~

    I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS NOVEL MY GHAD I CRIED SO MUCH SO HAPPPPYYYYY

  30. *sob* thank you so so so much for translating this beautiful piece of art! i cried so much at the end, first sad and then happy tears *sob* THEY ARE HAPPY AND SAFE THANK U FOR NOT GOING DOWN THE BAD ROUTE
    i can rest in peace now~~~

  31. Why did I suddenly thought of Du Ze’s remark about Yi Ye Zhi Qiu’s other work “The Tower”. Where in the end, it was only an illusion of happy ending where the hero left and reunited with his friends and that it was revealed (to the readers) that the real hero was stuck forever in the tower. Urk.

    Why do I have to think of senseless things?! orz

    The fact that there is even a mindfucked ?? kind of explanation is enough. Plus that 8 races extra… hehehehe

    Thank you very, very much for the hardwork of decoding and finishing story! This ungrateful and shameless reader is already reduced to tears by having the chance to finish this in one (or more like 3 straight days) sitting. Thank you~ ♥

  32. I really love this stories. I love both main characters and their relationship. Du Ze is really too cute to handle💓 (both for me and Xiu XD) my favorite chapter is probably the first extra (no doubt why lol)
    But really, with 96 chap and I can’t get enough of it!

    Above of all, thank you soooo much for the translation. It is very easy to understand and you even took your time making notes about some Chinese idioms and stuff for better understanding of us. Love and thank you BC! ❤️✨

  33. Much appreciation to all those who worked on this masterpiece. I would donate but this student has no money TT~TT. The story was great overall (understatement). The plot holes were filled but there were still some that weren’t. Like, what happened and who are Xiu’s parents? It was never explored.

    Or was it? Please correct me if I’m wrong! I may have missed something Q^Q

  34. Thanks for extras ^_^
    Chapter 94 was hot as hell XD. 95 was sweet and funny, 96 was funny and amazing. I’m grateful that Xiu helped their friends and they didn’t die 🙂
    And they lived happily ever after <3

  35. Bunch of hearts 💞💞💞
    This chapter makes me feel so relieve like a thorn was just pulled out from my heart.. i was so glad to know that the other world still exist and that mixed blood was even given to the protagonist. makes me feel so contented with how this end. so glad. Thanks for the effort everyone. Thanks Author, Translators, everyone behind this. The art are also gorgeous. 😘

  36. Thank you for translating! Wow, what a meta ending. YYZQ is right; everyone is in a novel—The Reader and Protagonist Definitely have to be in True Love. Good answer for the spiritual beast phenomenon. I’d say Du Ze is immortal and already f*king strong because he is a…fictional character! And a protagonist to boot! (Hello, Du Ze’s protagonist halo he didn’t even know he had.) Thank you again for the ride~ ❤️😊

  37. Thank you for translations.I really love this story especially all NFSW chapters .Haha Eight race switch chapter is my favorite chapter too.

  38. been busy wid studies n can’t read ur releases on time but now I did n I really like it a lot… I am sooo thankful to you 😍❤️👍🏻 this novel makes me want to believe in love more❤️

  39. Thank you so much for this amazing story! I think you already saw how many people you helped lots by translating it, and as I think it was for a lot of people, it was also a very memorable experience for me. Thank you and love ya!

  40. The best birthday gift ever. I binged this from chapter 1 up to now. Thank you translator for this story. This was one helluva ride, me is cri.

    Thank you author for this wonderful story. ;-;

    1. also I loved the smexy scenes and I hate the crab.

      Fudanshi out. (Yes, I’m male.)

  41. I held off on reading since about Chapter 75 to finish this all in one go. I absolutely loved this translation and original work. I also love that they really did get to have 8 races time! Chapter 94 was incredibly sexy. Du Ze robots…I’m sure some of them were probably used a lot less purely than to fool Du Ze’s mother. Perfect ending. I am extremely pleased! Thank you for translating until the very end.

    1. What if the Du Ze robot became lonely and Xiu made 8 races robots for the robot to play with? 😉

  42. Phew, I marathon the whole novel. So satisfying 😂 I seriously like how Xiu different forms differ and MOST IMPORTANT- all kind of kinky sexs 😍😍 Hahaha LOVE IT. Ty so much Translator-sama!! You did great 😚

  43. OMG! I love this novel! I’m so glad to have read this and you guys are awesome for translating this! I literally could. not. stop. reading.
    It’s a wonderful story that just made my heart beat faster by every chapter. The reader is so cute!!!!
    Once again thank you guys!!!!

  44. “The reader and protagonist definitely have to be in true love.” Never have I EVER read an ending line as perfect as this in the last chapter. I love this book from the bottom of my heart and I love that the author’s just breaking 4th walls like taking candy from a baby. Ahhh. The dramatic irony. I love it. I just love it. Thank you so much for translating this. Thank you.

  45. Thank you so much for this!~
    I liked the end a lot, and was glad that Xiu didn’t permanently kill everything. Looks like our silly and cute reader had a big affect on the Moe Lord!
    I cried during the first ending, so I was thankful for the extra chapters that helped put my heart at ease. And good luck to Du Ze and Xiu in the future, wherever their true love takes them!

  46. It’s a great novel and I feel that “great” is even an understatement. Though I’m not used to the writing format of the author (it was informal type), I gradually enjoyed it. I love to see Du Ze’s thoughts and how dense he can be. Honestly, this is one of the best CN I’ve ever read. It has everything I need — romance, comedy, drama, action, adventure, and smut ^//^. I am very satisfied with the ending, though I’d hate to part with this novel yet. I want more extras… T_T I need mored Du Ze and Xiu moments!! <3

  47. I shed happy tears at the ending, it’s hard to say goodbye to this novel I know I will miss it very badly. Thank you so much for your hard work for translating this! I am extremely grateful for your work! I never regretted anything when I read this novel, it was a fun, interesting and sad experience. I can’t believe this ended my hear feels empty just like how Du Ze missed Xiu yup that’s how I feel right now. Thank you for this! Your time spent in to translate this novel is something all of us should respect, once again I would like to say thank you for everything!

  48. Hello! I just found out about this novel haha the journey until the end was really fun!
    Also, I would like to say thank you for translating and for your hard work! Please take care now and have a good rest and I’m looking forward to your future projects!

  49. Thank you for sharing your hard work with us! It’s really been a pleasure to read. I do have some questions though! Why didn’t the tree of life’s sap cure Du Ze’s hearing this time? (I like that there’s disability representation, but the discontinuity bugs me). And, did any sites fall for your prank chapters? I’m really curious, but I’m not willing to give them page views so I’ve never checked.

    1. Yes, some of the sites fell for my prank chapters. 🙂 The world’s effects on Du Ze only last for 24 hours, including death. That’s because Du Ze is a “higher level” existence (as a reader). Therefore the sap cures him fro 24 hours. if he wants to cure his deafness he would need to use the sap every 24 hours.

    2. Wow, thanks for the answers! That makes sense. When Xiu entered the real world I thought of it as him becoming real, but I guess he is still a character from a novel. I wonder if he’ll feel bothered when Du Ze gets injured from something irl and it doesn’t heal at midnight, but all his lovebites do lol

    3. I thought you meant the sap during the elf arc, lol.

      … Wait, are we sure he is still deaf at the end? It hasn’t been mentioned except for those students and they were just gossiping. Perhaps Du Ze is pretending to be deaf since he can’t exactly explain because of his social barrier.

  50. It’s really here, the final chapter. I will miss this story so much, the cuteness of Du Ze, the greatness of Xiu, the wonerful world and all the lovely side characters….why didn’t the author continue!?!? What about Eric, would he ever get a lover?! What about Ariel and the rest if the elves? Did the gnomes come back (and make Old jon happy)? Ahhhhh so much more i want to knoooooow…

    But this kind of open happy ending is good too. Xiu will make DuZe happy (with lots of Papapa lololol) and will be the best supreme god. I want to know what world that Ha-ha author will make next though lol.

    BUT!!! The most important thing is to say Thank you.

    Thank you for all your hard work. If you hadn’t put you time and effort to translating I, and many other people, would have missed out on this wonderful story. Thank you, and I will continue to support you by reading and (when I can) donating!!

    1. About Eric and the gnomes, who knows? But Xiu seems to have mellowed a lot and the gnome god helped them out so they should be okay. As for Eric, well … idk but our dear yandere Xiu will never allow him to appear in front of Du Ze is my guess. 🙂

    1. He was stuck in the Tower of God when we saw him last, idk what happened to him. I think Xiu just doesn’t care about Eric anymore. It’s now up to us to imagine what happens next.

  51. Thank you so much for your hard work! This novel was a complete pleasure to read with your great translations! I am so thankful for these extras from the author lol! I was really concerned about the novel world was destroyed! And all their friends dead. I’m so glad that they can travel easily between worlds so that Du Ze won’t become a missing person in the real world which was one of my questions after the ending. Though I don’t know how long staying in the real world would be feasible since if Du Ze becomes/is immortal…he’s not gonna age and that’s gonna raise some questions lol. Though I guess since most Asians have forever baby faces until they hit their fifties, maybe it won’t? XDD Once again, thanks very much!

  52. Thank you so much this wonderful story. I love how everyone is alive and well in sky city and that they can go back and forth! You’re the best! As long as he’s immortal, they can together forever.

  53. after binge reading this novel, all i can say that this novel is very stupid and a disgrace to all novel ever created!!!
    – black powder fan

    kinda sad that the doujinshi was never mention again and the content was not explore much and what happen to eric? well i get the feeling that he probably survive, i quite like his character ( cause potential uke)

    i would have love to see what reaction xiu and eric haveif they knew that they are the content of the black bible(lol)

    thanks for the translation!!

    I’m late to the party though cause i just recently learn this novel. i’ll create an NU acc just for you

  54. Thank you very much for sharing this story with us~!!!

    Like others I will miss Xiu and Du Ze. They’re always gonna be in memory and heart!

  55. Thank you so much for all the time and energy you put into translating this and sharing it with us! I’m going to miss reading new stories about this reader and protagonist pairing, but I’m glad to have seen a conclusion. The meta ending was pretty fun too.

    And as we all know: Crabs are only good for eating. fufu~

  56. thank you very much !! thank you so much!!! I love this novel !! up to squeak, to yelp! pure delight! Thank you!!!

  57. this is so!!! sweet!!!!!!! i’m!!!2!!! melting!!!!!!!!!!
    i can finally rebute every ‘duze will d**’ comment my friend throws at me!
    OTP is alive and happy! so is everyone in the squad! I was so sad about Ariel and Old John, they’re too cute to die!!!!!!!!!
    It’s also realy cool seeing how this Xiu’s reasons are different than before DuZe, and he stayed as yandere as he was growing to be in this timeline (destroy the world to meet your love again)
    maybe the whole ‘destroying the world and left all alone in despair’ is more DZ’s worry than his
    lol at xiu learning everything for DuZe XDD
    thank you, thank you, thank you so much!

  58. Thank you for translating this book! Finding a good Bl book that updates regularly is not easy! This became one of my favorites and I’m soo glad it ended happily!! I love the silly cute reader and his moe lord. I’m gonna re-read this a lot.😊

  59. I really want to thank you for translating this wonderful novel!
    It is one of the best BL novels that I’ve read. I ABSOLUTELY love how cute Du Ze was and how caring (in his own way) Xue to Du Ze.

    At first, I was pretty unsatisfied with the ending (not including extras). I felt that the ending does not answer everything, and it was a bit confusing in my personal opinion. But I shouldn’t judge before reading everything I guess. This extra is the perfection!

    I love how Xiu saved Enoch, Ariel, and others because he would knew that Du Ze will ask obout their whereabout somehow.

    Love this sooo much

  60. This ending is just fit and perfect 👌.. I loves all the extra chaps, it was necessary and entertaining.. Now I’m not wondering anymore so it’s awesome.

    Thanks for your hard work 💕 💕 💕

  61. It’s the end?
    It’s really ending?
    We don’t have the daily dose of our Moe Lord anymore?
    Can I enter the novel please?
    As much as it’s hard to find a good story, it’s harder to find a story with satisfying ending, and I completely satisfied with this ending.
    Got to wonder what happen to the new world with Xiu in charge of them.
    Did Eric still trapped in the trial?
    Compared to others, he’s the most pitiful I believe.
    I do wish for happy ending to Enoch’s teacher and his lover.
    And for the gnome to have a future. I really like the last gnome god.
    Well then, thanks Reika for translating the story.
    Good luck for your other project.
    I’ll look forward for the continuation of the pair of shidi and his shixiong.

  62. thank you for translating this novel
    I binge reading this novel and cannot stop
    Du Ze is so cute and the smut scenes are hot *cough*especially the 8 races*cough*
    a bit sad this novel ended

  63. Thank you! Thank you! A thousand times thank you for translating this amazing novel and finished it! A sloppy kisses and a big hug from me to you! I am soo happy that this novel finished translating and not dropped like a lot of other BL novels. I love this book soo much I would repeat reading it whenever I have the time. I’m happy that they get their happy ending but sad that we couldn’t accompany them in their story more. 😭
    Anyway, thank you so much.

  64. Thank you so much for translating this project!
    Feeling slightly lost now that one of my fave series is completed…
    (Well, time to reread soon it means~)

    See you around <3

  65. Thank you for following this novel through to the end so that it can enter the rare realm of completed novels! You have great dedication and enjoy your well-deserved break.

  66. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!! ❤❤❤ This novel is absolutely amazing! You are amazing!! Everything is amazing!! Thank you so so so so much for translating this for this!! Although I’m sad this book is finished, I’m also excited to see what’s next! Translator-sama, YOU’RE OUR GOD!! 😙

  67. Thanks for translating such a wonderful novel, my kokoro hurts for having reached the end, but I am also happy, Du Ze and Xiu could be happy at the end, so I am satisfied.

    As for a new project … do you accept suggestions?

    1. Well, I recently started reading a novel, I found it interesting and when I was starting the best part, suddenly the translator said he would not continue, since he only translated for fun, it was disappointing, so I would like to know if you are interested, there I send you the link.

      Rebirth of the Wolfish Silkpants Bottom

  68. I’m so happy and sad, I can’t believe it’s finally over😭😭😭.

But other than that thank u, thank u, thank u for translation this amazing story❤️.

    one of my favorite bls ever
    I wish it wasn’t ending

  70. I’ll miss this so much!

    This novel also mind fck me with the novel-ception thing.

    The ending was excellent! HEs are the best!

    I’m so happy for them but at the same time, I’m sad that I won’t see their adventures anymore because it ended.

    Would love to see more lovey dovey stuff of this though.

    Thank you for the editors, translators, and cleaners for doing such a good job on this and I applause your hardwork with every chapter!!! Thank you so much for sticking to this and translating it through and through, thank you so much for everything!!! 🙇‍♂️🙇‍♂️🙇‍♂️

    I will miss this! This waa such a good story and one of the ships that sailed smoothly until the end!

    DU ZE X XIU FOREVER~!!! Woohoo!!!

  72. Reika, thank you so much for translating this novel!
    I’m so happy with the ending *sigh* now my fujoshi heart feels content and somewhat empty~~
    *burries myself in bl to console my rotten heart*

  73. Omg omg omg *repeatedly rolling on the ground in excitement* I can’t express everything I feel, so I’ll make another comment later!

    I’m so happy for these two! This chapter clears up a lot. There are absolutely many benefits in having an OP lover. *happy sigh*
    – – –
    Also, Reika, have you heard of The King’s Avatar? I found out about it yesterday. It’s an eSports anime and there is this person called Ye Xiu (叶修), who has a game character (wearing a red scarf) that reminds me of a brown-haired Xiu!

    It looks like official subs are on the 腾讯视频TencentVideo youtube channel.

    1. I’ve heard of it but I haven’t watched it since I tried like 10 mins but it seemed super boring.

  74. Thank you so much for translating this story 🙂
    I saw the novel on NU a bunch of times and put off reading it for a while. When I saw it was almost finished I binged read it for 3 days.
    I found the story to be very sweet and the ending satisfying. So happy.

    GL on your next project and thanks x1000 ^^

  75. It.. It’s finally the end. Thanks for all your hard work, Reika, for translating this story. It has became my favorite. I really liked this extra. But what the haha-author said at the end… Haha-author, wai u do this to me? Wai you left me a huge pile of curiosity!!!

  76. Reika, you are such amazing translitor… You make this story easy to understand, and you keep follow the time for update, and if we have quistion, you are so kind to answer it… Honestly, you are one of translator is what i’m favorite the most… Couse you are soo amazing, its rare to find translitor who chose a book and then still make scedule for update, its give a some like “safe feeling”.. i mean if we read your translate, we not gonna dissapointed,… Thanks for translite this book and show us Reika,..
    We like you the most XD…

  77. AHHHH! Thank you so much for finishing this! I loved the ending. I can’t believe it is over. It’s funny I am happy and sad at the same time XD You did an excellent job at translating this beautiful story! Go treat yourself to something nice!

  78. I’m gonna miss reading TRAP ;-;

    Reika, you are the coolest translator ever. You occasionally talked to us, gave us amazing manga/manhua recs, gave us pictures, immediately fixed mistakes. You even updated daily, which is a gift readers hardly ever receive. 😂😭

    This ending…..I don’t know how to feel. I definitely see how amazing of a writer the ha-ha demon is. His way of thinking is definitely complex which is good for writing. But I just….can’t handle that hint of angst in the end of the chapter. ;-;
    Breaks mah heart, yes it does. I low-key wanted a sex scenes to happen in the class 😏

    And I agree with you! THERE IS NOT ENOUGH BL IN THE WORLD. This ain’t no place for female leads. WE NEED MORE BL.

    Thanks for everything! I will read more of your translations! 😘😘😘

  79. Thank you for translating this entire novel! I really enjoy reading this. 😭 Look forward to your other novels.

  80. Thank you so much for all of your hard work. It was incredible! The story was wonderful, the characters were great. Plot development was so good 😊. And I love me a yandere!!!!

    Also, this extra was so cute. It’s nice that Xiu didn’t destroy absolutely everything.

    Great work Reika, a job well done.

  81. Everytime i read the end of a story, i always have a mixed feeling. Like ‘I don’t want it to end but I also want to see how it ends!’ orz

    Anyway, I really love this story. Both the main character are absolutely my love!! I’m so gonna re-read this over and over again!

    Thank you so much for translating such wonderful story!

  82. Thank you for all your hard work and efforts through the novel.
    Author, don’t play mind games on us. The easy answer to your question is that we don’t receive data from outside to make our decisions. We provide input to our decision making process. And that input comes from a mixture of our consciousness, various emotions and intelligence.

  83. Thanks for the translation and hardwork that you are doing until the end ,rikka..love the ending because l more like Xiu and Du Ze live in their novel world rather than in real world even though it’s funny Xiu have become ghost…
    I will await for you other project then (everyday protagonist want to capture me)

  84. Thank you very much for the hardwork, time and effort you put into this project *v*)/ You are amazing *v*)/ wew– ImI just glad that the rest are all alive.. I love how the ending goes.. again, it’s like a novelception kind of thing x3 Keep up the amazing works reika-san ^^ (i was kinda shocked that ch. 24 of everyday the protagonist.. updated on some other website but i found it it’s from you still) FIGHTOOOO!!~ 😍😍

  85. This was such a wonderful read, and I too feel a bit bittersweet about it ending but this also means that we get a new beginning. I will continue reading your translations for the protagonist wants to capture me and I’m sure it will be another beautiful experience.
    Thank you for everything.
    -A Phantom Reader

  86. Thank you very much for translating this novel!!
    I like the couple 😊😊
    just wondering what YYZQ is thinking?

  87. Thanks for finishing such a fun novel! I did like this ending. Everything has come full circle in a way that is satisfying.
    I saw your request for recs. Out of curiosity why do you not like female transmigration stories? If they are similar to this story, and if users reading this story also like them, it should be fine to rec them? I kind of think that NU recs should reflect reader utility rather than translator preference.

    1. The recs are supposed to be not just “what I liked.” They are supposed to be similar series.Those stories are not similar at all. Have you read them? Non BL, no male protag, not Western fantasy (they are all mixed genre), shameless face-slapping OP protagonist – does that sound like TRAP? No, it doesn’t.

      Besides, BL stories are almost never rec’ed. Period. Sadly, not even BL stories have BL recs most of the time. I’d prefer it if BL lovers took a few minutes to support BL projects.

      I’m disappointed that someone actually took the trouble to do the opposite of what I requested and voted up the non-BL stuff. It really bums me out that a simple request like this results in backlash.

    2. There’s a lot in your post that would make for a really interesting forum discussion, but maybe this isn’t the place for that 🙂 The conversation would get really long and probably be very predictable. Much as I love BL, I also know that it is a niche audience.

      If we’re just talking about this story, the hard part of adding it to a rec list is that it has a few unusual elements that make it stand out in a good way (Duze’s disability; the fact that he is more of a sidekick/observer than a protagonist), but don’t necessarily make for the most obvious first choice when thinking about other stories. With QWFoD, for example, I could think of at least a dozen other stories that are more similar to it than this one. Doesn’t mean it shouldn’t get rec’d, but it does probably mean it will get buried by other recs.

      If I were going to add a rec to the page for this it would probably be Ascendance of a Bookworm. It’s not BL, but I do think that it matches the tone and a lot of the more unique elements of this story.

  88. Xiu the ghost.
    😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂
    Thanks for the hard work Reika-sama.

  91. Thank you for completing this amazing novel! It’s so bitter sweet because it’s the end.
    I’m very happy with the ending! Would definitely recommend this BL novel to others. It’s in my top 5 BL novels for having a intricate plot, well developed characters and beautiful love!

  92. I guess this means that they can shift back and forth both worlds. That’s the best ending. Thanks for the hard work. One of my faves like Sun Knight 😀

  93. Thank you so much!! This story is incredible and thanks for all your amazing work that we’ve been able to read it!!

    The bitterness of the previous chapters, thinking everyone was dead and the world had been destroyed… but now it’s FINE
    I really like this ending! Thanks a lot for translating the whole story, I’m really grateful!

  95. If our reality is a novel, I wonder how the readers are liking it so far. ╮(′~‵〞)╭

    i’m just really glad they’re happy and together and that you translated this!!! thank you

  99. Translator-sama,.. A quick question… Would you produce a pdf or e-pub file of your work? I would love to have a copy of your work just like how I have a copy of Exiled Rebel Scan’s work of The Legendary Master’s Wife (*’▽’*)♪

    Thanks for your hardwork! As always I look forward to your next projects ≧ω≦

    -from a silent reader

  100. Thanks for sharing this extra chapters. I end up liking Mixed blood author and his “ha-ha”
    If our life is in novel, then dear author give me more up in this story ha-ha..

  101. wow! thanks for answering my question and thank you for sharing this wonderful story😘 . love the happy ending of this story. sigh.. i’m going to really miss this one. btw, will you be focusing on “ETPWTCM” now ? or will you be translating a new bl novel here? 🙂

  102. It was a roller coaster ride, one that is I’m willing to ride over and over again. A very satisfying ending for me.

    Many thanks to you Translator-sama! A job well done (๑•̀ㅂ•́)و✧

    ╭(●`∀´●)╯╰(●’◡’●)╮

  103. This was the wonderful journey and it was only possible because of you I want to thank you so much for picking this story and giving us regular updates you are awesome I hope you keep up like this I am a big fan of you as you always keep up to your words.
    Once again thanks for the hard work hope you keep doing it ( I know being selfish) but I love you.
    Thanks

  104. Aaahhh it’s finished now what to I do with my life 😐😐😐
    I kinda like the ending seeing people breaking the fourth wall and I’ll wait for ‘every day the protagonist wants to capture me’ but please don’t push yourself okay~
    But all in all time to re-read again 😂😂

  105. Lmaoo!! I’m sure that I’m not in a novel because my life is so boring 😂

    Thank you for translating the novel!

    1. We could be the necessary NPCs that act as the building blocks to the plot.
      Who knows, maybe you gave a protagonist necessary information to defeat a demon lord.

  106. Even though it almost reached the end of the story it was exciting and a story that I will remember forever. Thank you very much for bringing us this wonderful story, towards my happy days.

  107. Thank you! So now they can move from the novel to the real world without any problems? or are they just going to stay in the MB universe? How did Xiu get permission from the creator if he didn’t meet him until he left the MB universe?

    1. I think it’s at the moment that Xiu left the novel to get Du Ze. It is mentioned that the author met the Protagonist when he left their computer.

  108. Thank you for the translation! I love the ending, because it looks like Du Ze got the best of both worlds. Love the other series you are currently doing as well. Keep up the awesome work!
