A Nest of Snakes Inside an Old Tomb

Description

Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

As a human reborn as a viper, all aspects of Yin Xiaoxiao’s life were beautiful except for when it came to food.

As a silver (Yin) snake meeting an ink (Mo) snake, Yin Xiaoxiao could accept whatever his husband’s clan was.

As a viper with no inherited memories, Yin Xiaoxiao found that the ancient tomb and all the different snake clans could really stress a snake out.

In summary, Yin Xiaoxiao’s life is nothing but this: Different viper clans marry. The old tomb is ruled by his next-door neighbor’s clan. My spouse, Heitan, this naughty precious snake, worries me.

Actually, this is the story of an evil little black snake doting on a confused foolish little silver snake.

Boss Mo: Yin Xiaoxiao, you’ve stolen honey again!

Yin Xiaoxiao: It was definitely your sons who ate it!

Baby snakes: Dad’s a lying snake!

Yes the story is cute and ML very pampering although at first he was tsundere. It's mostly a slice of life and have a little drama. If you love fluff and doesn't want a drama, this novel good for you

I love the ML, but I'm still doesn't like the MC, for me yes he was cute, loyal, and cheerfull, but I don't like his selfish (altough he will admit he was selfish), naive, childish, and his laziness. Sometimes I'm confused with his temper, it's so bad. Sometimes he got angry with childish reasons or without reason got angry, make ML confused.
Spoiler

he doesn't want hunting for food, and incubate eggs, doesn't have a responbility. Hunting and incubate the child become ML job. Even the MC ask his children to catch their own food, YOU ARE A ADULT AND YOUR CHILDREN STILL A CHILD, it's like a father told their underage child to get a job

[collapse]

Sorry my rant, the one I like the most is the ML, the ML make me still try reading till the end. Altough the MC has a good things too
Spoiler

like when there a human invasion, I thought he will protect the human because he was former human, Fortunetly his mind is more to snake side and think if he help human, it will become the snake side got injured.

[collapse]

But still the MC is not my cup of tea. Sorry for bad grammar and my rant.

I feel that the MC isn't that bad. He does care for his new snake family and he did use to be human in the past so of course he will think differently. Also, I think he is more lonely and frustrated at having no human to talk to on the same level about things at times. His personality serves as a nice contrast to the ML, so they complement each other well.

It's a cute slice of life story with a main mystery about the tomb. The snakes are all... more>> very adorable and having the story premise be about the life of snakes is pretty unique in itself. I'm curious about the ending though...I wonder if MC will reincarnate into a human again or if it turns out that the snake clans first used to be people...

Also, I haven't reached any smutty parts (can't believe someone wrote a yaoi about snakes lol) but snakes have two dicks so... cough cough... will the author know this? <<less

Hmm.... story wise it should be good if MC is not such a pain in the ass character. I found him ungrateful and selfish most of the time.

It was cute in the beginning but the more I read it the more I find him unbearable.

Anyway, it's easy to MTL

I have finished reading this and I have a lot of good things to say about this story. I MLT this and it's just a sweet story, were the MC died and becomes a snake. We see him grow up with his family and later on meet the ML who is a black, noble snake.

... more>>

All I can say is that the author made me enjoy reading how the MC and ML grew up and got married. There is a lot of funny seens fine the MC does not have the memory that snakes are born with, and you will also like it as well.

I recomend this story if you want to read about two snakes fall in love, protect there home from humans, and raise their own babies. <<less

Yeah, it's as other reviewers said. MC's pop (the one who gave birth) annoy me too at the first arc with his attitude. It was suppose to be used for the humor and how they often break the fourth wall but yeah. He's just a side character anyway so it won't be long till the next arc where the story will focus elsewhere. And he will not be as annoying in the later chapters

TBH I did not expect that tomb raiding part (in a good way). And most of all... more>> I did not expect I will enjoy reading this so much. I was prepared to get bored with non-human slice of life. But what I got was the opposite of boring! Interesting thing is this was able to explain the mystery of the existence of intelligent snakes who can speak and tie it together with their purpose. It's a very unique novel. Usually, you will see stories of Tomb Raiders but the MCs were the opposite party as defenders of the royal tomb. In terms of world building, the author has done a very good job of creating her own world with supernatural beasts, burial chamber, treasures, folklore with a bit of historical. A+ world building!

Spoiler

Minor couple is gentle king (shou) x yandere gong, which are fully blood-related royal brothers now ghosts. Their story will be told in the extras. Not only that, their story gave more details about the background story, sort of like an origins. Theirs is a bittersweet love story.

Fluff lot of fluff. It's a really great story.. And I actually learn a lot of snakes activities from this. Yes I am very afraid of snakes. But.. If all snakes are like xiaoxiao I probably.. You know.. I probably doesn't mind living with one.

its just like when a person has caring family but takes it for granted o..o

but other side characters are cute and ML too >~<

Spoiler

•i felt sad for lan yiyi he should have atleast told him, instwad od running away poor guy

•xia wu should be given more love

•MC should visit his parents and brothers more often (like he visits his frnds more than family)

[collapse]

my own hypothesis for MC being selfish and s*upid at times

‼️read at ur own risk😛
Spoiler

•its saaid in last chapters that MC ate the soul of the silver snake he possessed

•snakes in enchantment can only reincarnate as snakes again and soul will be lost if the enchantment is broken

• based on these two I think snakes soul should be stronger than our MC human soul (not mentioned anything about why MC reincarnated here) so when MC ate the soul snake soul (overeating souls might cause personality defects as both sould need time to merge ?like MC isnt a soul eater so some traits might be retained) character were engraved within him ?

•human selfishness + snakes selfishness = > selfishness jk like his human nature is lost cause of soul eating and became more apathic?

one more thing hes becoming lil less selfish as he gets pregnant (ik he kicked of his children after 5 years but still he could last till 5 years xD) im using chimera thingy here where offsprings eat mother after being born

as mc's soul is bloated he got pregnant early = my analysis here is

■it is mentioned that normally snakes who have s*x before becoming adults cant have children

●i take it as it takes time for reincarnated soul to merge with body and during their fertile period their soul is strong (strong enough even if lil power is distributed among the offsprings it wont effect either) and can give birth and can give birth only once (yeah other reason population check)

●as soul is weaker also body conditionsof snakes didnt reach adulthood having s*x it will disturb the process leading to no offsprings

■um so MC gets pregnant 4 times which decreases the bloated soul and is kinder than before (as its mentioned by ji zhao that MC looks happy to have more children <like if hes selfish he would hate that a lot and kill themz something >)

ik its s*upid analysis just wanted to tell my thoughts >~< thankx for reading !!

Super cute story. The MC is really confusing, he's supposed to be a human reincarnated into a snake, but he seemed to forget immediately all his wisdom as human. Like, he's super childish and kinda annoying at times but I guess ML matched him well.

ML is such a nice snake husband. MC's snake family is also a cute and warm family. It's overall a fluffy story.

Anyway no need to think hard reading this novel. Lol.

Hello,

This is the translator. Like usual, I didn't want to leave a review until I'd finished the novel, and I was reading as I was translating. I feel like the translation itself is pretty okay. I'm not fluent in Chinese at all, so I rely on MTL and then copy-pasting each sentence into yabla to make sure that the MTL is accurate. I've tried my best to remain true to what I thought the author had intended, but it's MTL so...

The novel itself was mainly light-hearted fluff. There were... more>> some actions that the MC and ML did that I didn't agree with,
Spoiler

like wanting their children to leave faster and then ultimately giving their fourth batch of kids to Mingshe and Xionghui. But then, they're snakes, and nature can be brutal. It's not unusual for animals to kill the runt of the litter, so I guess I'm glad that no infanticide happened

[collapse]
. And then, of course, there were the Ji Zhao and Ji Kang extras, which were a bit of a mood whiplash compared to the rest of the work. I'm not sure if this is me projecting my own feelings about the translation process onto the novel, but I kind of felt like it started with a bang (it was really fun and attention-grabbing!) and then kind of petered out after the tomb-robbing arc (kind of like: okay, so the ML and MC got married, had kids and then... complained about having kids?). I had been expecting some explanation of Bai Jiahei's markings and uncanny strength, but nothing came of it.

Still, I enjoyed the story. I actually chose it because I like snakes, and this combined danmei, reincarnation/transmigration and snakes, so that was a win-win-win. Over all, I'd say that it's a good story and an enjoyable read - light-hearted with some drama but nothing too intense - but that the ending was a little disappointing and the ML and MC could be a little annoying. <<less

The story is mid tbh.

The plot is actually good, I enjoyed it especially since I like to read this kind of genre what I don't like is the lack of character development of the MC, It makes my blood boil and in my opinion the ML deserve someone better.

This story is sweet and I would consider it a light read. There is not a lot of drama and the conflicts are solved within 2-3 chapters. If you want a story without the MC having revenge or trying to make the world better.

-1.5 Story wise there was lack of character development in MC which I'm usually not picky but in this case he hinders the story from becoming great. I feel bad when I see what MC is doing. He's less emotionally developed which makes the romance unrequited more... more>> than mutual love. The MC only how to take but not to give back he still regarding himself as superior and demand for human advantage. So he should understand the concept of giving and taking.

-1, Slowly everything began to feel shallow. Although the interactions did not feel forced as this is a romance novel I can only tolerate so much neglect. The plot was lacking even with the supposed 'little to no plot that most slice-of-life novels are able to pull off.

I enjoyed this novel because of the interactions between the other snakes. ML is such a nice snake husband which was not what I was expecting. ML very pampering although at first he was tsundere. It's mostly a slice of life and have a little drama.

I feel like if I gave this another name it would be: Adventures of Small Snake and Benevolent Snake. (Benevolent as in Tolerant) <<less

Tbh I really don't like MC ego... Especially his selfish personality. Welp, it's not that bad to be selfish but it can't be too much... Even taking advantage of ur love one. When u know they love u and doing as u plz without considering another feeling. In this novel, it talks about animals point of view. It's simple and straightforward but... It also Intelligent creatures that are cable of thinking and learning. So u consider that it is another intelligence race. So what I want to say they can... more>> be call the primitive ppl that is why I feel bad when I see what MC doing. And on the emotional part in my view it more like ML have unrequited love on MC, more than mutual love. That too selfies, he only how to take but not to give back. If he is the snake since birth it ok cuz it might be cuz of their nature but he not and he still regardsing himself and demand for human advantage. So he should understand the concept of giving and taking. So I give up after 100 chapters. I couldn't go on even tho only a few chapters away from the end. He too selfies for his own satisfied making things hard and trouble for everyone who loves him. This MC really give me bad taste in my mouth. Gove it 3 stars for the hardworking ML and his cute families. <<less

This is a cute story. The MC is annoying at parts but I like the side characters so much that I can look past it. There's not much of a plot, just a slice of life, but I really recommend it

just because I don't like it doesn't mean you won't like it.

I did MTL, but from what I saw the translation is nice! if I were to describe this story in one word it would be: boring. look, I like easy readings and this definitely is, but it is not sweet at all!

the beginning caught me only because of the interactions between MC and his brothers, and also because of my expectations in ML. then, he appears and... well... MC is 100% tsundere so ML's dominating attitude is very favorable... more>> here, in general they get along well.

later, there is the back story about the tomb (which is in the title of the novel, but as it was only mentioned later I had already forgotten), but it didn't interest me at all, I just went through all these chapters. anyway, it's so boring that I can't even make it to the end.

I still read a few more chapters by MC and ML, but honestly neither captivated me, just dropping that

repeating: I didn't like it, but maybe you like <<less

I won't be rating this novel as I have dropped it.

The main reason for dropping it is due to the mc's personality. He's very childish and selfish, so much that it's irritating. I'm really not a fan of this type of character.

The premise of the novel is interesting but I feel like it's not executed well. The humour in the first couple of chapters is decent, then it starts to feel like it's trying to hard. There are moments where the author tries to break the fourth wall for comedic... more>> value but it falls flat, and sometimes disrupts the rhythm.

The translation is okay. It's not great but it's better than "just about readable".

I was trying to hang on until the ML arrived as this is tagged early romance, but 12 chapters in, he hasn't arrived and the MC has annoyed me too much. <<less

This is a very light read if you don't consider the current human morals. 😅 If you want to read this, you'll have to remember that the characters are NOT HUMAN. They're snakes. So don't be an ass when rating.

The tags should have non-human morals, in*est, non-human in*est, non-human age-gaps, non-human child rearing. The death scenes aren't very graphic so I guess I won't warn about that.

The MC is an idiot but a very lovely idiot. I say that with doting affections. The characters are very typical. The ML is very dependable and like any all other bl out there, capable and poweful.

Spoiler

i should say my favorite part is when the ML has always been sure of his love of the MC. No matter who questioned, even if it's his own parents or the MC's parents, he stood his ground but at the same time, worked hard to persuade them to accept their relationship just like what the MC wished for.

[collapse]

All in all, I had my laughs and enjoyed this read very much. Thank you so much to the translator and foxiholic💕
