Bottom A, Top O

Innocent looking but is actually a scheming lawyer Omega (gong) x Gentle and honest police officer Alpha (shou)

Nie Zihang and Yu Jingxuan’s first encounter took place in the police station late at night. Because his omega lover had cheated on him with an alpha, he had tossed a sphere of concentrated pheromone extract into a packed hot pot restaurant. He had to tell his lover that all alphas were wild animals that couldn’t tell friend from foe when they sense pheromones.

The story concluded with him being questioned by a police officer who, despite his gentle voice and dainty features, turned out to be an alpha as well.

“Mr. Nie, as a lawyer, don’t you think it’s bad to deliberately break the law?” The alpha asked him.

Nie Zihang casually tossed a video recording of the incident while smiling. “In accordance with the ABO Protection Act, my actions were lawful as self-defense. Officer Yu, you should not show unprincipled favoritism to wrongdoers simply because he’s an alpha, okay?”

The alpha courteously released him.

He assumed the issue was over until the next day, when a familiar face arrived at the law firm. A casually dressed Yu Jingxuan entered his office and mused, “Mr. Nie has a strong animosity against alphas. Would you mind if I asked you for help suing an ex-boyfriend? I want his reputation to go down.”

Nie Zihang arched his brow. “Oh? More information would be appreciated.”

Only then did he learn that Yu Jingxuan was also engaged in AA relationships. His ex-boyfriend had also cheated on him with an omega.

Since AO is the right path, why don’t we give it a try?

Anyhow, the gender also coincided well.

5 stars!

Very short but very sweet! I like the concept where they are both viewed as gay in their society for liking their own secondary gender and it does come with some thoughts ... more>>
Spoiler

like how society views them and going against their secondary gender biology. And it's not as simple as an O top being together with an A bottom because there's also society's view on such a pairing.

[collapse]
Of course it's not in-depth analysis or angsty but it was a refreshing read.

Their relationship is really fast paced but for the length of the story, it works out.

My fav part is:
Spoiler

when MC realises that ML's friends (post breakup for them respectively with scum ex) all encourages him to meet someone better, yet his own friends encourage him to give up and just go with one-night stands or something. And he questions if there was something wrong with his own friends xD

[collapse]

Also extra kudos to the fact that there was no forcing on anyone due to pheromones because that is a trope that I do not like.

Overall a good read in the atypical dynamics genre! <<less

The most elusive ABO pair of them all, a OA couple!! Our A ML is just too cute really how could MC not fall in love?! They have a little misunderstanding midway through but it's not drawn out and MC is good at drawing ML out of his shell. Just a wholesome and sweet relationship between an unlikely but also perfectly matched couple.

Definitely one of my favorite ABO stories, always love a trope subversion! Bonus points for the seme protagonist POV, and having MC fall first is a personal favorite... more>> just because I love a good pursuit.

Really happy the TL has been completed! I will say though, some of the dialogue is pretty pretentious sounding which makes me wonder if they actually talk that way or if it's the translator's choice to make them sound like they're in Victorian times lol <<less

Ahhh!!😍😍😍 This is the first time I read a novel for seme point of view. It was where satisfying and sweet.

Shou is so sweet and soft and Seme is quite the gentlemen. Though it was short but it was worth it. 🥰 Though I could not find the extra chapters 🥲 to MTL it so I will wait till it's translated.

Lots of ❤❤ love.

Very cute! Role reversal with Omega top/Alpha bottom.

I only have a few small issues with the text which is...

... more>>
Spoiler

why is it that there's role-reversal, but the main couple is still so stereotypical?

for example, the "top" is taller (even though he's an omega, he's taller than the alpha).

for exmple, the "top" spoils the bottom. the "top" makes more financially. the "top" takes the initiative.

the "top" is more aggressive and protective.

the "bottom" is gentle, effeminate, and worries about being too assertive. meh

[collapse]

Literally we have the exact same gendered stereotypes, without any modification from the tropes, minus that the ABO titles are switched.

Baby steps I guess. 🫠

Finally, translation started out fine, but started reading like it went through ChatGPT formalization. It had nothing to do with the "tone" (formal or not) of the text itself, but rather, the redundancies in the writing that come from throwing something through ChatGPT.

Spoiler

Eg. "I have taken it upon myself to assist him in responding to the incoming call..." so damn wordy?

Can easily be: "I am responding to the call on his behalf..." <- just as formal but not as wordy.

Eg. "Hanghang, as the Mid-Autumn Festival draws near, would you be inclined to make a journey back to your place of origin? Your father and I yearn for your presence with great intensity."

"Hanghang, the Mid-Autumn Festival draws near. Do you have plans to journey back to visit your old home? Your father and I yearn for your presence." <- Again, formal but less wordy.

Yearn already conveys "intensity, " there is no need to both use descriptive adjectives AND further emphasis.

Take the sentence: "Your father and I miss you intensely." <- an adverb is acceptable here because "miss" is a commonly used word. "Your father and I yearn for you intensely." <- here, you can see, just by a simple substitution, the intensely immediately becomes redundant to the usage of an uncommon verb.

Typical writing would not include both, but ChatGPT loves it. Mindlessly substituting verbs and replacing every single word through thesaurus doesn't make good writing.

Cute story with a happy ending. An easy and quick read. MC, Nie Zihang, and ML, Yu Jingxuan, are both likable characters. The introduction has most of the plot, although it isn't completely right.

The first part of the novel was super cute with the relationship in the discovery and interest phase. I didn't like it as much once they got together because ML's strong and capable alpha police officer character becomes meeker and weaker. Comparing the beginning and ending story ML, they are too different. This trend of weakening the shou's character once a relationship is established is annoying. It happens too often, so acknowledging it's there and trying to appreciate the novel's other good points is all I can do. 😑
Spoiler

MC's omega actually cheated with ML's alpha.

Thank You for the translation~

8/10 for me this would have been in 10/10 if it just had smut and I know I sound h**ny but this story was practically made for it but then it went PG and I was incredibly sad, with pairings like these it's so rare to see and I feel like there would be a lot of s*xual intimacy and dynamics that are interesting and are more appealing than the supposed abusive alpha and soft omega shou.

But otherwise, the story was Great, consent showing that it... more>> is possible to restrain yourself when there's beastly instincts and pheromones involved not a lot of angst, and a healthy relationship I wish it was longer I recommend it. <<less

Read this one!!! I just finished eating honey!!! I love this. It is a pity that the novel was short.

The MC, the Omega is the "gong". The ML, the Alpha is the "shou". This novel unique because of this reason. The roles in the relationship are reversed. The MC was always teasing the ML. ML turns into a red shrimp in front of the MC most of the time. Although he was physically an Alpha, his personality was totally that of an Omega. They were so sweet together. Fluff overload!

... more>>
Spoiler

It was interesting to read how the ML as an Alpha, became submissive under the MC. He was ARGH!!! So damn cute!!! Cuter than the cutest omegas out there. I was quite disappointed when the Omega marked the Alpha instead, the Alpha marking the Omega. The ML should have also marked the MC as well.

It was a big surprise when the ML became pregnant in the extras. When it said m-preg I thought, maybe the MC omega became the shou in order to have a child, but NO!!! The author made an Alpha pregnant!

[collapse]

I wish there were more descriptive intimate scenes because, I mean you come across such a combination once in a blue moon. At least I haven't read one like this. All in all, ones who like ABO novels must try this. <<less

If you want fluff, it has all the fluff.

There's a definite plot; sometimes it seems important and present, but other times, not.

Among other things, it's a story of how we act different just to fit in. How others are stuck in stereotypes and uncomfortable when people stray from those.

But honestly, these are my real thoughts: ... more>>
Spoiler

Acting submissive just to be liked by the aggressive Omega was disappointing, and sometimes just weird. The Alpha was so helpless and hesitant and I hated it. It didn't make sense that the Alpha admitted he thought he needed to act submissive to be liked, but then kept doing it even after the Omega assured him he didn't need to. Their relationship reminded me of a BD*M pair - extreme submission and dominance.

[collapse]

And, finally, the translation was excellent. <<less

Super cute and fluffy. This is a reverse pattern in AO setting which you don’t often see. The ML is such a sweetie. Nice short read.
