Everyday the Protagonist Wants to Capture Me

Chapter 53 – Every Day the Protagonist Wants to Play With Me

The link to the chapter is at the bottom. If you’re in a rush you can scroll down right away but you have the time, please read this:

I need your help! As you may or may not know, this website had over 500,000 views last month. I expect this to keep on rising until (possibly) it has over 1 million views! I’m afraid that the website hosting server won’t be able to handle it without me paying a lot more hosting fees.

Because of that, I was thinking of joining the Facebook publishing network. Facebook has a lot of servers and a mere 500,000 – 1,000,000 views won’t even make a dent on their hosting.

To be published in Facebook (their actual publishing network, not just regular FB) I need more views and clicks… on Facebook. 

If you want to help me out and if you have Facebook, go to my Facebook post and like/comment on it then click on the link to read the chapter.

Thanks a lot!

Ibuki Satsuki’s Comic Collection

Have you heard of Ibuki Satsuki, the creator of awesome Xianxia art? Check this out!

 Ibuki Satsuki's Comic Collection

You can read the English translation of Ibuki Satsuki’s Comic Collection here.

The comic basically meanders here and there with the plot going in many different directions, flashbacks, flash-forwards, modern AU, etc. but I don’t care as long as I can look at all the great art.

The image above is Sun Tuo, a healer. He’s known for being the serious and solemn type who wears a metric ton of layers. I love his long hair. 🙂

Summary:

A collection of comics depicting the everyday lives of characters from the wuxia-themed MMORPG Jian Wang 3. Mainly SoL(slice of life) comic shenanigans set in the Tang Dynasty.

Ep 1-42: Series of standalone episodes that don’t have continuity (aka one-shot/omake types)
Ep 43 onwards: start of “story”

A Study in Emerald by Neil Gaiman

Looks like people liked the last post about books. Here’s another thing you can read and it’s even for free!

A Study in Emerald” (pdf), a short story by Neil Gaiman. It’s an homage to H.P. Lovecraft and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle so it helps if you’ve read Sherlock Holmes and the Cthulu stuff.

shadows over baker street

This story won the Hugo Award for Best Short Story in 2004 and the 2005 Locus Award for Best Novelette.

Don’t worry, this is freely and legally distributed by the author himself at NeilGaiman.com’s free short stories section. It’s from the book “Shadows Over Baker Street.”

Excerpt:

She was called Victoria, because she had beaten us in battle, seven hundred years before, and she was called Gloriana, because she was glorious, and was called the Queen, because the human mouth was not shaped to say her true name.

It’s a great short story!

By the way, the Sherlock Holmes stories are in the public domain so they are also free. Most (but not all) of H.P. Lovecraft’s stories are also in the public domain. Therefore, you can read them for free, too!

Thanks for reading.

Happy Cyber Monday

If you’re shopping on Amazon today for the Cyber Monday deals, take a look at these books and ebooks that I personally recommend. Some of these are the stuff I read and others were gifts. I like to give books as gifts to children to encourage them to read more in the future.

The books that I personally recommend:

Unsouled by Will Wight (Cradle Series)

This ebook is currently free to read if you have Kindle Unlimited. The Cradle series is what Xianxia would be if it was written by a Western author. It’s great.

Summary:

Sacred artists follow a thousand Paths to power, using their souls to control the forces of the natural world.

Lindon is Unsouled, forbidden to learn the sacred arts of his clan.

When faced with a looming fate he cannot ignore, he must rise beyond anything he’s ever known…and forge his own Path.

I have also read the author’s Traveler’s Gate Trilogy, which is also free on Kindle Unlimited. Just wanted to share the good stuff with you!


Tithe: A Modern Faerie Tale by Holly Black

This is one of my favorite fantasy books. There’s a sequel titled Ironside which I also love. I do not recommend the other book in the series (Valiant).

Summary:

Sixteen-year-old Kaye is a modern nomad. Fierce and independent, she travels from city to city with her mother’s rock band until an ominous attack forces Kaye back to her childhood home. There, amid the industrial, blue-collar New Jersey backdrop, Kaye soon finds herself an unwilling pawn in an ancient power struggle between two rival faerie kingdoms — a struggle that could very well mean her death.


Mommy? ( a pop-up book) by Maurice Sendak

This was my gift to my nephew back when I had more money to spend on gifts. It’s a great pop-up book for younger kids.

Nimona by Noelle Stevenson (English graphic novel)

This one was my gift to my niece and she loved it!


The Funniest Joke Book Ever!

This is a nice kid-friendly book that I gifted once and they immediately opened it and started reading it right then and there. That’s how you know someone likes it.


The Essential Tarot Kit: Book and Card Set

This looks a lot more expensive than it is and makes a great gift for someone who likes this sort of thing. It comes in a very nice box so it looks like you spent a lot on this gift. 😉

Thanks for reading.

I almost forgot to update today because I was looking for Cyber Monday deals for the website, hahaha!

I wanted to check out if there was some good discount for content delivery networks (CDN, something that makes the website faster) but there weren’t any real one. Sadly, there are a bunch of websites that say “75% off” but when you click on the link there’s no such discount.

Honestly, the only one I can trust nowadays is Amazon, lol!

The river crab appeared again!

The last chapter was fun but the river crab appeared to spoil things. *sigh*

Task, tsk! Well, I still enjoyed it. I’m pretty sure every chapter is like that, by the way. Don’t raise your hopes up for non-crab infested chapters. Sorry.

Never Marry a Man with Two Tintins

never marryFor those who aren’t aware, Never Marry a Man With Two Tintins is one of my projects.

Summary:

Cheng Nuo transmigrated into a fantasy world. Not only did he turn into a child, he also became female! What?!

*Cheng Nuo checks his body*

Cheng Nuo: Great, I still have that!

*big sigh of relief*

Despite the fact that his body remained the same, except for being younger, in the world where he transmigrated, Cheng Nuo is considered a female because… he only had one “little brother.” You see, the males in his new world all have two “little brothers.”

I published this a day early since I have something to do tomorrow with my family. Enjoy!

Please let me know if there are any errors. I kinda rushed this just a little bit but I did check to see if all the links are good.

The next chapter will be published next week.

Thank you for reading.

P.S. Some people have asked if they can translate this into other languages like Spanish, French, etc. Well, sorry but this was translated by a whole bunch of people and if you need permission then you will need to get it from every single translator, not just me. I personally don’t mind but I’m not sure other translators would allow it. Good luck though!

Beauty Game: Completed!

Congratulations to Panda Hero for finishing their translation of the Chinese web comic “Beauty Game” Season 1. I know that there’s a Season 2 but Season 1 is a complete story with a good ending so I doubt I’ll want to continue reading the sequel.

You can either click the link above to download the webcomic or read it online at Mangadex.

beauty game

It’s a dark, thoughtful story of an ugly girl who gains access to a mysterious web game that lets her make changes to her appearance in exchange for doing certain tasks.

How much would people pay to be beautiful? Is beauty worth it at any cost?

There are just 49 chapters which I think is the right length for a story like this. The main character is really fascinating in a way but the real reason why I read it is because of the male lead. *sigh* What a dreamy guy!

Thanks for reading.

Happy Singles’ Day!

Today is November 11 which in symbols is 11.11. In China this is a popular day for online sales and is known as Singles’ Day since the date is all 1’s.

I guess you could say it’s the Chinese version of Black Friday sales… except that it’s BIGGER and more MASSIVE in every way! Last year the global Singles’ Day sales was $25B. LOL! Here’s an infographic about it from richwaytech that I found to be interesting:

 

single's day china

China loves Uniqlo, I guess! I tried to look for sales today since I think all stores have worldwide shipping but, in the end, I chickened out since I have never bought anything online from China.

Oh well, maybe next year!

Thanks for reading and let me know if you have any tips for Black Friday or Single’s Day sales. I love a good bargain.

I sometimes put recommendations on these posts. Here’s one!

Oni Love Comedy

I’ve been reading this hilarious and surprising manga: Oni Love Comedy. The main character is a really strong and scary red-haired high school student who is called “oni” because of his appearance.

He’s way too scary so girls always run away from him! All is not lost however, since mamy fujoshis love forceful seme characters! Check out this one page below:

kabedon

*laughs*

Yes, it is indeed a guy doing the legendary kabedon on another guy.

The manga is not BL. Only two chapters have been scanlated so far but I am enjoying it.

You can read the manga at Mangadex.
