Translator’s Summary

This is the story of a reader who shows his love for his favorite author by trolling him with negative comments. For the author’s latest novel, the reader complained that the protagonist is way too nice and boring… but he didn’t mean it. Reader only said that to get attention. He actually loves the story and the protagonist.

Author: … Understood.

The reader then helplessly watched as the story derailed. The protagonist’s mixed blood heritage was revealed so he was betrayed by his friends and allies. The formerly heroic and lovable protagonist went through countless sufferings and turned pitch black.

Du Ze was then transmigrated into the novel’s world where he met the protagonist. This is the story of their adventures and romance.

Note: Du Zhe (读者 meaning Reader) and Du Ze (杜泽 the character’s name) sound almost the same


Main character: The reader is deaf and uses a hearing aid. Uke. Due to childhood trauma and his disability, he finds it hard to overcome social barriers to talk to people normally. Smart type when it comes to non-social interactions. Physically weak but brave. Dense when it comes to romance.

Male lead: The protagonist was formerly a kind, friendly, self-sacrificing hero, but after he was betrayed and hunted down by his former friends, he turned into a cold-blooded killing machine. Seme. Possessive and jealous. He has eight different forms, each with it’s own powers: angel, demon, elf, gnome, dragon, undead, beastkin, and human. Protective and doting lover.

Author’s Summary

As a black powder fan, the reader criticized his favorite author to express his love, saying: “The protagonist is 2B (dumb), the author is SB (stupid ****).”

Author: “… Got it.”

Then the reader could only helplessly look on as the the protagonist was abused and betrayed, finally embarking on the road to becoming completely black (evil), everything was a mess.

After that the reader transmigrated into a strange world. How come no matter how he looked at it, the person in front of him is the protagonist (blackened version)? Just what is going on =A= !?

[In the other world]

The reader (holding on to the author’s memorial tablet and crying): Hero! I was wrong!!! The Holy Saint is indeed the best person in this world! The world needs the Holy Saint! Please let the protagonist’s Holy Saint shine her light on the people around me (especially me)! Blackening is an illness, please treat it.

Protagonist: Come here.

[Twenty-first century]

Author: Atchoo! Which sister is thinking of me?
