As you progress on the story you will find that YWW isn't really innocent and that SYH isn't that much of a terrible guy. In the chapters (200+) you sill learn from YWW's POV how horrible of a character she had. How spoiled and naive that she lost everything that she didnt even remember her own death. But as far as she remembers SYH was with her all the time keeping her safe but dumb her keeps attracting trouble. In the end she was imprisoned.
SYH? Well I don't really find him much of an evil guy but instead finds him as someone who is a maiden in love inside but an ice block outside. In the past he made his entire family his enemy in order to make YWW his until he was no more than near by deaths door did he release YWW. In this life time their current relationship is slowly building up along with their trust and relying with each other. Their moments are also pretty adorable since YWW always have to make the first move in order to get what she wants leaving a dumbfounded SYH.
The main villain/antagonist of this novel isn't the plastic SMQ but the white flower BRX that is SYH's subordinate. And one more annoying character would be SYH's grandma who f*cking cant decide for herself but instead is just like a white board going along with what people writes on it.
The subordinates tho like XY is pretty hilarious now and Da Bai as well. Her career as a manager in the entertainment industry is building up. She also reconciled with her family but poor bro he is still in love with plastic girl.
The YWW we knew wasn't actually the real YWW but is actually someone else. YWW and SYH actually had a kid. YWW and SYH is a leader of some really powerful organizations, fell in love, etc.. then bam. The story is all over the place.
There was this one time when Claude had amnesia in order to save Athy from her magic outburst turning him into one cruel sc*mbag but soon he began to wonder why he cannot stand seeing Athy being so sad, hurt, gone, etc. I love how the FL never even sought for help and tried everything to solve the problem she faces, unlike other FLs. She was able to save herself when she's in danger and didn't do any stupid stuff to make the ML shine by saving her. There was this one time when she realized like the FL in Daughter of the Emperor that before she knew it, she started seeing Claude as someone who she can rely on and smile at since she never knew what it feels like to have a family. Therefore, she decided that she won't die by the hands of her own father and planned to save him by accepting her circumstances.
Ugh seeing Athy being like this brought so many tears since she almost gave up and even thought of just continuing the original plan she had when she was a kid and leave since nothing in this world was hers, it was all the original Athanasia that died.
At first I wasn't really planning to read this because I didn't even know it existed but when I saw a recommendation from a novel I was about to read, I decided to read this first. When I read the few chapters I thought that this was a gem that others haven't read yet because of the comedy that the author first gives you that makes you feel like your in heaven but when you get in the middle of the novel, well damn, you better prepare some stuff to break from all the misunderstandings, the death of some characters, the mysteries of Jin Mi's birth and how she acts.
Now let's talk about Jin Mi. The FL of this book that the wonderful author wrote. This child when she was born she was destined to have some love problems because of that Unfeeling Pill. You can say that the source of all this problem is the le pill that no one has ever heard about except Jin Mi's mom. You would be hating the female lead from her every actions of being too stupid by using the 2 love interest as rags throughout the story since it doesn't seem that she is interested in any of them. But you cannot really blame her like translator sama said. She may have deserved all that hate and pain because of how she played with them but all the fault lies in the pill that unable her to feel any love towards anyone. When she finally realize what she had lost, oh my, all I can say while reading it was YOU DESERVE EVERY LITTLE BIT OF IT YOU B*TCH! But thinking about it, when you look at her character deeply you will realize she is imperfect along with the pill. To describe her would be that she is a stubborn straightforward girl with a pure mind who thinks in a straight line. Her imperfections made her who she is. She learned the hard lesson after realizing her origin, falling in love, and choosing for herself and not running away. So all in all I very much admired her.
But you know who I LOVE the most in this novel? Its REN YU/NIGHT ♥♥♥♥ He to me is the most perfect dude who resembles everyone in society today that touched my heart. His childhood to the very end of the story stole my heart that the only reason I managed to finish this book was my love for him. His loneliness, his deep love, his mask that hides his ugliest nature captured me that he became my fav character in the book. When Jing Mi said about how he lied so much that he mistook that lie as truth to live made me think of how we all wanted to live in our utopia if we only had power. But when we finally had it, all of the emotion we will feel is loneliness. The second dude that got my heart aint the ML but Master Puchi who saw Jin Mi for who she truly is and never pushed himself on her. He helped when she was down and stayed true to himself and was Jin Mi's silent guardian angel.
The novel mostly focuses on how the FL, Bai Weiwei, can survive by going through different worlds. Although she complains, she doesn't like being in the dark especially when it's about her and the people she loves. She knows what she wants and stays focused on her task. There will be times that you think this novel has a FL that is very emotionless and plays with the ML's feelings, etc. But she isn't. It's either she do her task or she dies so she really has no choice. The FL, as well as the ML, are truly meant to be imo. The missing half of who they really are. As you read more into the arcs, you will see that the FL, as much as she wants to fall for the ML, she stops herself knowing that it'll hurt her them both in the end and gradually thought of her mission as a way to run from the feelings that are slowly budding inside. There's even a line from a recent chap that hit me hard where she and the system had a talk.
Bai Weiwei: "How much life value will I have when I live until the age of 82?"
System: "20, 000 days."
Bai Weiwei: "Then I will save up 20, 000 days of life value so I can fall in love."
It's better having a lot of life value where she can live up to the age of 82.
That way she'll... be able to let go of her worries and freely like him.
Then there's the ML, as he feels various emotions in each arc, he slowly discovers that there is something more than his dreams and his fiance having a rare disease of waking up every 3 days. It actually scared me when I thought he almost figured out FL had a system when he asked who she was talking to while staring at her while at the same time not. *shivers*
ML eventually left the FL after causing a problem for his family. It totally felt as if he just used her body to satisfy his “missing desires” by thinking she was unique to him. Then later on he starts going out with another girl and gets engaged then goes back to the FL for forgiveness. Srsly, an as*hole that needs to be gone.
Then theres the 2nd ML AKA the orig!H’s husband who just used her as a stepping stone to get closer to the FL. Later on regrets losing her by noticing too late that he f*cking f*cked up by ending the phone call when his pregnant wife was kidnapped and killed
We get a POV from the real Gu Jin and how she got another chance to live her life after witnessing the current Gu Jin fix it. The most exciting part was that the long forgotten awesome dude that likes her finally has a chance!!!!! *Fangirls*
I don't know to others but the ending got me really unsatisfied. After Yue Chi knew what happened to Su Bai after 3 years by going to a Dream Master that Su Bai met before she died, it got really good in the beginning as to how he slowly felt regret and realization on the truth on why she suddenly disappeared on the night after she came home from the war. How she freaking kneeled in front of his room asking for answers if they really were going to go back to her home country. Yue Chi repled yes but I don't know if there was anything wrong with his brain or probably this was just something that happens often which in my opinion is a big fat no and casually go to bed after he answered her and still let her kneel there even though its raining for a realllllyyyy long time. What's more she was crying her lungs out outside his room while getting soaked in the rain. Like wtf bro why didn't you notice something was wrong when she kneeled for so long and even cried until her voice turned hoarse then you just start regretting everything. After she finally accepted reality she decided to stay by her master's side and become someone useful to him no mater what and thus she jumped into a pond of gu and became the most powerful gu. The price though, was that she will forget everything about her past in order to fully become a gu with no feelings.
After everything had come to light Yue Chi laughed so hard from the regret and fell unconscious after coughing blood and once he woke up he looked for Su Bai who now has turned into a gu and left together with her as he smiled so sweetly. Then the end. Like, thats it? Really thats it? The story didn't progress further not telling us on what happened to Ah Lai and if Yue Chi obtained the other Jue Sha from Su Bai's enemy who killed her family and got revenge for her. Although I think there might be more chapters but for now im so unsatisfied since it left readers with a lot of questions still yet to be answered.
When they were both sent back to their real world and they had to look for each other, I found that a bit dramatic tbh. However, their efforts to accomplish it makes you really happy they got together. Especially when ML prepared a concert in desperation just to find MC in case she does appear since in their original world they don't know each other's face, identity, nor voice. Their moments within that scene painted a picture in my mind and touched my heart.
*Sneak Peak of the arc*
ML *in his concert*: Can everyone please turn off their lights?
Fans: *proceeds to do what he asks*
Among the darkness where the lights slowly dimmed and disappear everywhere, Gu Ren searched for Ye Zhi. Although his night blindness in the past doesn't obscure his vision now, but why is it that he still can't find her? Everything is still so dark without any light... However, as the lights at all sides began to disappear, among the crowd, Ye Zhi panicked and hastily took out her phone to turn on the light. At that moment, without any words spoken out loud, that lone shining light guided both of them to one another as a sign to say "I'm here"
Gu Ren ran out of the stage and followed the light. Because he knows, as long as she say those words, as long as she keeps being his light, he'll be there. As he stands in front of Ye Zhi whose face and voice differed from the girl he knows in his life, he asked her with trembling voice.
Gu Ren: "Why didn't you turn off the light?"
Ye Zhi: "Because I'm worried you won't be able to see me."
Gu Ren trembled, he felt afraid that she was just a mere illusion. He didn't dare blink his eyes in case she does disappear. Hugging her tightly in his arms, her comforting scent tells him that she really is here.
Ye Zhi: I finally found you, Gu Ren
even though the MC is the Queen of Laziness, she and QQJ has the same character trait. Or should I say belief in themselves? Love yourself more than the others or else once you love someone and isn't reciprocated, the only path is for you to go mad. Both women may seem harmless but once touched, would eat you whole without realizing it. They are also not the vengeful type and always leave the person that hates them the most a chance. Both know that the era they live in is where women are just tools for men to rule the world so why bother going so far as to hurt one self? Only difference between them is that HXW had everything whereas, QQJ lost everything and is only left by herself which made it more enjoyable how she got to her path of success. Meanwhile HXW seems a bit plain since she already had everything and didn't need to do anything.
Did I mention that the ML of TBVW is much better than ETT? In ETT, the ML, like the FL of ETT had everything except for a perfect family unlike HH who has a loving mother and sister but both share the same fate of having a scum dad who favored a concubine more than the wife. In the story although YJQ didn't hate HXW, he didn't really LOVE her to the extent of being obsessed with her. He just knows that since HXW knows him much better than anyone that he ACCEPTED her and somehow turned to shallow love in my pov. He wasn't as hardworking as HH on being a husband.
The other thing I dislike was that everything in the story was meant for the main characters to see the downfall and rising of each characters. Mentioning more about them than the characters. Sure its great to have a bit more pov but it was more focused on a certain person on how great or dislikeable someone is.
