The father thought that ML was his son but in truth, his lover cheated on him and was pregnant with the child of another man. So ML is not related at all with the Xu family.
What is the purpose of the Best Female CV Award?
To encourage the female CVs to work even harder. To appreciate their effort in CVing. To judge which female CV is the best.
And guess who won the Best Female CV Award in his first year?
It's Yan Mu Lin, the MC.
Wow author, could you be even more ridiculous?
Yes, YML is such a good CV he can CV for a female character. Yes, YML is so damn good his moaning can stimulate even the straightest man. Yes, YML is so great no one would know the voice of the female character Pan Jia Ling came from a man.
So what? Doesn't change the fact that he's a man.
Imagine a male actor who is so androgynous with sexy AF voice; acting a female character in a movie and his acting is so on point you would never expect her to be a him and he deserves a freaking award for it, what award should be given to him? It's the Best Male Actor Award, right? Because he's a male and he is a goddamn good actor that transcends gender.
Similarly, if YML is so f*cking good, he should have been given the Best Male CV Award.
The Best Female CV award judges the FEMALE CVS, not the FEMALE CHARACTERS.
And he got TWO of them throughout the novel. Wow.
It's the MC's OP power rooting him in the Abandoned World when it disappeared, taking MC along with him.
The MC, Lin Yuan, is registered as a male Beta but actually is a extremely rare male Omega. He undergone s*x change program and has been taking injection to suppress his instinct as Omega. If the injection is taken continuously until 20 years old, he will become true Beta. But Lin Yuan entered a military academy and his mother can only provide pills for him to consume.
It was hinted that Lin Yuan is the son of the Marshal, Rosen, and fell-out-of-grace Major General, Lin Yu. Lin Yu had been using Omega Inhibitor and entered the same military academy as Beta, raked in various achievements and became a Major General with an independent corp. In an operation, the inhibitor failed and he entered omega estrus, became hot and bothered. His friend, Rosen, who is crushing hard on Lin Yu, helped him go through the estrus.
Unfortunately, the military took offense in Lin Yu's lies and striped him off his achievements and sentenced him to life imprisonment. Our lovely Rosen managed to get him out because Lin Yu was pregnant, and the punishment became house arrest instead, in Rosen's apartment. But...... Lin Yu didn't want to tie himself to an Alpha. So he drugged Rosen and escaped. The spacecraft he used was later found in a wreckage caught in some kind of space storm with his blood on the debris. Rosen created a tombstone for Lin Yu right at his back garden and became a cold person ever since. I truly wish for Lin Yu to still be alive though. Poor Rosen.
Lin Yuan truly think he is a Beta, no clue whatsoever from his mother. But his roommate, Prince Caesar, have nose better than a dog and can detect his Omega scent, though the prince doubted himself.
He's a dangerous, crazed, cold-blooded maniac, and first-degree murderer who kill Alphas with a smile!
What is gender equality?! Obviously, Omegas are the best s*x ever! (lol jk) (and ML was a bitter Alpha whose love towards an Omega was unrequited)
Our Sinan suffered so, so much in his childhood that it is understandable how he developed his crazy personalities. And he trusted no one until he met ML and was treated gently by him. Then ML told him, 'If you encounter any trouble, call my name and I'll be there for you.' At that time, they were mere strangers and for Sinan to trust a stranger as deeply as that, you can tell he's pitiful.
Meanwhile, Zhou Rong was a soldier with an actual personality of his own. He had a glib tongue and almost always teased Sinan and the others with his words. His interactions with others were very interesting to read. And he's steadfast, like how a soldier supposed to be. I didn't see his character derail in any way throughout the novel.
Then there's the antagonist, which I hate but the character was nicely done, who was a maniac too. He hated Omega but fell in love with one anyway and developed his crazy personality where he actually tortured his love. And who was that? Our Sinan.
Who. In. Their. f*cking. Mind. Torture. The. Person. They. Love?! Obviously, he's a sad man whose love was rejected until his death. I'm not sympathizing with him though. Serve him right.
Did I miss it or was the s*upid guy who nearly f*cked up their super important mission near the end of the novel didn't receive any repercussions for his idiotic decision? Because of his mistake, many soldiers were sacrificed and more were injured. They nearly failed the mission to retrieve the ultimate vaccine and doom the humanity. But at the end, I only saw him being mentioned once; he envied Sinan's super speedy recovery and wished it for himself.
.... where's the punishment?
Shu Shu is afraid of snakes, even until the end. He might get used to Edgar's dragon form (yes, dragon!) later on but just barely. He was even afraid of his son's dragon form. It's because of fear of being eaten and I think it makes sense that hamster who used to live normally is afraid of its natural predator.
BTW the title actually refers to Shu Shu's son. When his son broke out of the egg with his dragon/snake form, Shu Shu was paralyzed and thought, 'Will I be raising my natural enemy?' (Initially, I thought the title refers to Edgar lol)
In history, the beastmen left their planet to explore the universe, were ens*aved by other species and had to fight back. Only when they won did they were able to secure the space to live and form the Beastmen Empire. The fallen beastmen from that war were still alive as beasts and later on were relevant for the plot.
It didn't mean that they were the only species living in the universe though. Although only in extras, another species on good term with the empire actually appear on a diplomatic visit and it was explained that they have a trading agreement with other species. I found this way more realistic than ABO AU which only has the human.
On the political term, the Beastmen Empire practices democracy with the royal family acting only as a symbol. I believe that the ruling of democracy instead of a monarchy is a symbol of development and since the novel runs in the futuristic setting, they are in balance.
In the Beastmen Empire, there are the more dominant beastmen and less dominant sub-beastmen. It's a beastman instinct to protect and cherish a sub-beastman. It's kinda similar to ABO AU but with less discrimination. The sub-beastmen can work and even enter the military. (Societal development)
A beast bead needs to be given by a beastman to his favored sub-beastman in order to reproduce, which mean that the most appropriate pairing will be beastmanXsub-beastman. But beastmanXbeastman and sub-beastmanXsub-beastman pairings are still accepted. They are uncommon but still exist. (Another societal development)
the romance! Du Xu Lang is such a likeable character and their relationship as lover in the first world is truly heartwarming. I love how Zhou Yun Sheng stayed in that first world to be by Du Xu Lang's side until his death. Once he died, Zhou Yun Sheng immediately left the world and recovered from heartache for a long time in the hidden world he own. And when he went to the second world, turned out the next love interest is the same person. At that time, both of them have different names, different background, different personalities, and different everything but it was HINTED and I was CONVINCED, that the love interest, Nian Si Nian, is the reincarnation of Du Xu Lang. If Zhou Yun Sheng is trapped to be the villain, then there is a very high probability that Du Xu Lang/Nian Si Nian is also trapped by the God Lord and experienced the same kind of repeated lives like the MC.
In the third world, the love interest even have double name (maiden name? Can't remember) that is Gu Si Nian. Gah! The romance though!
He can barely act. He can barely cook. And aside from his signature that he already perfected in his previous life (even better than Xi Ze's), his writing is near horrible.
He needs to work hard in acting because he's actually interested in it, you know. He takes classes and improving his acting little by little, first by acting in an ads, then later in a movie. You can see his gradual improvements in time.
He's actually acquaintance with ML, the golden thigh. Turn out the ML even loved him but was too s*upid to realized his own feeling and slept around with women instead. Only when MC died did he realized his feeling. But NOPE, baby! It's too late! MC is already dead.
And ML later subdued a zombie cat while the son later took in a zombie companion, which I find really interesting to read. They even have mutant pet dogs. I haven't seen that yet!
He's an omega and a very proactive one. The first time his inhibitor failed, he pushed down the nearest alpha. Later when he need to have another omega child to save the first, he again actively proposed to the alpha to roll him in the sheet and impregnate him.
He was very determined with his goal. He didn't want to marry, so he faked his death and fled with new identity. When he fell in love with his alpha and discussed marriage with him, Randy straight forwardly met his real brother to restore his identity and said;
'Do you remember your dead brother? I'm actually him.'
'You think I'm young? I'm already a father of three children.'
'Meet my alpha, your colleague.'
TBH, Randy is the best at dropping the bomb at the most unexpected time.
1- Rong Xu : calm, clear-headed MC is the best. It's my personal preference. I might be biased because of it but I love Rong Xu. He was good at what he's doing and he knew it. There's no need to be smug with anyone or anything. It's just a fact. Period.
2- The reactions : I love the reactions worshiping the MC, whether they are from the fans or the critics, I love them as long as they are placing the MC on altar. Again, I'm biased because it's personal preference.
3- Details : Wow this author. I think he knows everything he need to knows before he write them. Thumbs up for all the researches he'd done. Not only he knows what happens during filming, he also knows what happens in a fandom. I personally am in a fandom myself, though I never contribute financially. Everything the author described in the novel, from the fans raising funds in MC's name to fans preparing to support him in his filming set, I can actually imagine it happening in real life.
4- Development : we all know MC wants to become the superstar in the new world, but he did not receive the Best Actor Award the first time he was nominated. I like this little shortcoming because life can't be smooth sailing. And MC started as third rated actor in low budget drama before he rose in popularity and acted in even better dramas and movies later. Then MC acted as the male lead in this very good, very popular movie before he got that award.
5- Relationship : I'd say it's the best thing in this novel. It's practically a lie to everyone else but they did what they need to do. MC and ML were connected by their mothers' friendship, they became roommates, friends, and then lovers. Here's the catch; Huaxia is not that accepting. So what they did was pretending to be really really close friends (even acted in homosexual movie and attended red carpet together) and pulled the wool over everyone's eyes. Until MC proposed in a freaking concert filled with fans. Talk about extravagant.
1- Qin Cheng : the most typical ice berg ML, common even in het novels, not to say danmeis. I don't dislike it, but I don't like it either. It's just the ML we can see everywhere. The only think I find (a tiny bit) unique is his secret fan boy side, but it's not all that unique either. I personally think he still can has that secret fan boy side even without being an ice berg. (But it's okay because it's just personal preference. Others might like it.)
2- Love at first sight : annoying af. But meh, whatever.
In the earlier arcs, it was obvious that the ML was so domineering bordering pushy but at least he backed off each time MC makes his stand. But it the cultivation and ABO arcs, ML actually had s*x with MC without his consent.
In the cultivation arc, ML poisoned MC so he can't turn back into his mushroom form and became muddle-headed. In the ABO arc, ML used his alpha's pheromone to overpower MC to bed.
It might be because ML kept losing MC in the previous arcs and so he blackened but I still didn't like it.
