Cerulean Planet

Description

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

He was the first animal on this planet to have emerged from the waters to walk on land.

He sat on the sandy beach, looking down at his hands.

He had five fingers on each hand, joined together by blue webbing. He stared at his hands. The webbing disappeared, seemingly absorbed into his body.

His skin became hard and dry. Textures began to form.

He sat there, pondering.

Who am I?

He seemed to be experiencing rather than thinking.

He could sense the damp heat of water vapour caressing his body; hear the quiet sloshing of water from afar, wave after wave; feel the grains of white sand digging into his skin.

He experienced things. But when he reached with his hand, he could not seem to grasp what they were.

He reached again and touched the corners of his mouth, noticing its upward arch. He made an expression known to humans as a smile.

Soon, the expression shifted into something else.

He sat there, cried and laughed, crying and laughing, as his chest rioted with brimming emotions.

Reasons to read :

1) Good Smut (⁠ ⁠ꈍ⁠ᴗ⁠ꈍ⁠) (Ahem Ahem hey don't judge me I know u want it to...... moving on)

2) Good Character development of both MC and ml

... more>> 3) tent**les ಡ⁠ ͜⁠ ⁠ʖ⁠ ⁠ಡ

4) cute ML who actually has a personality

5) a not so week MC he isn't overpowered but isn't a delicate thing either and also has a bold personality

6) A very very interesting plot that will get you mesmerized in it

7) only 21 or something chapters so u can easily spare some time to read it

8) fluff ✧⁠◝⁠ (⁠⁰⁠▿⁠⁰⁠) ⁠◜⁠✧

Summary:

Spoiler

our MC is a soldier he and his troupe went to fight a war but MC was met with an accident and his space shuttle fell into a planet with no intelegent lifeform, There he met a tentacle blob looking creature which was very hideous to look at (it's our ML btw :⁠-⁠P) MC was r*ped by the ML in order to get his gene information or something like that it's hard to explain. The planet's living environment was very harsh so MC treated ML as a tool to keep himself alive. As time went on their interaction became very funny ML would listen to everything MC told him and would protect him from harm it was also funny how he would get offended when MC called him ugly but was speechless when he called him beautiful it was all very wholesome. They also very often had consensual s*x and ML also understood later that that what he did at the starting was considered r*pe to humans.

ML is a immortal entity like creature with no human emotions who is also stuck on this planet since a very long time and at first he treated MC as a pet because he was curious about humans it was so funny how he sometimes copied MC's behaviour to piss MC off. They spend their days bickering with each other their opinions are very different from each other and they often fight with each other, but after being stuck with each other for sooo long they both got character development and understood each other better, MC gradually fell in love with ML and told him I love you even though ML can't understand feelings and here comes the sad part MC had cancer so he told ML to leave him behind but ML started crying and told him he was long prepared to die with him that he (Mc) taught him how not to be lonely and he doesn't want to be lonely anymore then they both had some kind of spritual s*x and then we are back to the starting the first intelegent creature of the planet coming out of water with no memory of who he is laughing and crying sitting at the sea shore (it was kinda confusion ending but I don't dislike it (⁠╥⁠﹏⁠╥⁠))

I am not really good at explaining and there is a lot I can't explain in words so u guys should just go read it

If you're about to start or in the midst of reading the story, if you want to thoroughly enjoy the story, I suggest that don't be compelled to take a peak to the spoilers ○| ̄|_ So that you can fully experience what this novel could offer ('ω') .

Every chapter left me curious and emotionally engaged by how the author seems to be more inclined to portray how both the characters interact, rather than just describing Sci-Fi things. I feel its Sci-Fi vibe mostly not because of the setting, but on... more>> how the characters gain understanding about their anatomy differences, their contrasting judgment, morality and reality, as they are not of the same species.

Spoiler

Amidst their differences, they formed a mutual Symbiotic Relationship in their stay in the Cerulean Planet. The author focused more on the feeling and emotions that could be encited onto the readers when it's about describing the beauty on what lies on the Cerulean Planet- by how both the characters experience it together in travelling around.

[collapse]

Most novel of Human-Nonhuman Relationship genre that I have come across, was the Nonhuman have the authors written them with similarites of how a Human think. Of course those works are a great read nonetheless, I just want to point out that this short novel was a unique read amongst Human-Nonhuman genre works that I have read so far. This novel have the two characters in which their minds process things very differently- their way of thinking, are bound to the laws of their homeworld and their own kind.

Also, the ending was truly fitting.

Spoiler

What was exactly the virus or the very suspicious trench that maybe... have played a role to how things ended, but my human mind could only just form speculations (maybe the first intelligent creature was a "Third Entity" of Jiayun and Jianing, or them being merged as one and lost their individuality, either of these 2 theory I felt compelled to believe the most with the possible causality of the virus) became more absurd the longer I think about it as to what happened in the last chapter ╮ (╯_╰) ╭, and if those have to do on who truly was that "First Intelligent Creature". Maybe those would be answered on the sequel. But nonetheless, the ending tied everything. The first intelligent creature, it felt like- even though not technically reincarnating, it's as though it's the same principle of "reincarnating" in which Jiayun said that in the next life, your memories will be reset and you'll be a new person, because the first intelligent creature just seems to be just "reborn" by how it somewhat became self-conscious for the very first time. And also by this ending, it further cemented this novel's title, because Cerulean Planet just had its very first intelligent creature, as though Cerulean Planet all along was the true protagonist of it all.

[collapse]

Cerulean Planet novel, everything in its premise- it's too beautiful it made me cry 〒▽〒. For me, after completing reading the story, time seemed to have stopped as I take my time to appreciate over and over again in my mind this novel. I hold on to that feeling of "first time reading" this, and when I came back to my senses, I wish that I can have selective amnesia to erase the memory of first time reading this novel so that I can experience it again for the very first time... Also, I give thanks to the translator, they did a very great job! Looking forward to its prequel or sequel! <<less

I agree for what the other reviewers had said ╥﹏╥. After completing reading this novel, it's as if my mind had suddenly transcended to a higher realm of enlightenment in which I can't make sense of the indescribable emotions this novel had brought me. The author did splendid in making the reader anticipate the inevitable while still be making the reader be curious on how it will play out, and it worked! Even though as a reader I already anticipated the inevitable, I still continued reading the novel to the... more>> very end. I also agree that it felt more rewarding to read this novel without any expectations, go read the spoilers after completing reading the novel, so that you will enjoy it to the fullest. But well if spoilers were not a concern for you, it was still great. To each their own. (づ ̄ ³ ̄) づ The Human thinks like a human of course with emotional inclination, and the Nonhuman thinks like an Artificial Intelligence. The author did great in their dialogues because the characters' banter was very amusing.

Spoiler

I laughed so hard when Jiayun was about to take a 💩 and Jianing said this to him:

"You and excrements are no different to me."

:V

It was so uncalled for when he said that to Jiayun lmao.

On the other side of spectrum, the emotional damage, I cried so hard when both Jiayun and Jianing decided to go down together. I reject the idea that one of them survived and became the first intelligent creature, because Jiayun said that he wanted to be at least remembered by Jianing, and it seemed that First Intelligent Creature was devoid of informations (╥╯^╰╥). So I'm also rooting for the theory of one of the reviewer here that the first intelligent creature was Jiayun and Jianing's third entity. Ah, Im positively excited for the sequel <3.

[collapse]

Give it a try, it's a really well done short novel, kind of like the vibe of short episodes like Cyberpunk Edgerunners anime with also this same sense of inevitability. If you're wary of sad endings, this novel with the Tragedy tag, it was a kind of Tragedy where it was bittersweet but still hopeful and sort of like an open-ending. This kind of Tragedy tag where it was just a beautiful tragedy so no worries in this! <<less

TMI: I came from an incomplete dog blood novel and wanted to soothe my soul with some fluff but I came across this instead and boy was I hooked. So that you know, this is my very first time writing a review so it may not do the story justice. Therefore read it yourself to find out people.

I was a bit skeptical reading the synopsis and seeing only 21 chapters. Because you know it's tough to achieve that feeling of completion within 21 chapters when a story starts from the... more>> beginning, as indicated in the synopsis. And seeing the tragedy tag scared me a little because of the tmi stated above, so I read a review left by one of the readers.

Spoiler

The synopsis was the ending chapter and the tragedy tag is not dog blood so rest assured.

[collapse]

first of all the setting, the sci-fi tag already indicates that it takes place in a futuristic setting where space travel is prevalent. The description involved within the story of various objects such as the sun (natural satellites), planets, and ships (mech) the state and the condition as well as its causes and effects are well laid out and explained. Although it doesn't receive as much depth as it does with other Bl sci-fi novels it's plenty enough for 21 chapters. 3 stars for that criteria.

secondly, I want to talk about world-building.

Spoiler

Both the ML and MC are stranded on a blue planet that is similar to earth but has no intelligent life form whatsoever. Their mechs are destroyed and even though MC repaired his mech, he concluded that it wasn't enough to escape the planet's gravitational force. So basically they're stranded there forever. After the meltdown episode, they both head out into the sea in search of their new home.

[collapse]

This point seems to be not much in view as much as the other aspects but the way it seamlessly makes its way through the story is so refreshing and kind of gives a sense of nostalgia when you reach the ending. (Well to me it did, might not be so for others so take that with a grain of salt)

Thirdly, my personal favorite character development - yay!!

I freaking love both protagonists. The MC comes off as a snarky person but he can't hold a candle to the ML when it comes to having the last word hahaha. Their bickering with regard to ML's appearance in the story is so funny lmao.

The MC gradually finds the ML's appearance cute and slowly lets go of the inhibition that he slept with an alien and probably likes it as well.

Spoiler

He takes the initiative in the later parts of the story *wink*

[collapse]

He then begins complimenting/flirting with the ML which in turn leaves the ML speechless hahaha (now it's his turn lol)

The ML comes off as a naive being that holds curiosity to the MC just as regards to any species out there (it's a thing in ML's species) and he copies the MC's snarkiness because he thinks that the MC as a human is being condescending of him which he really was at the beginning, so ML gives it right back to the MC by calling out his race, quote-unquote -

Spoiler

" you humans always think you're superior to any race."

" taste is just a sensation perceived by the neurons. Humans just like to fool themselves with arbitrary things. "


" Humans think chaotically, trying to find order among chaos. "
(it's not exactly what he says. It's just something I can think at the top of my head for the moment but yeah you get the gist)
[collapse]

The ML begins to try to understand the MC through the perspective of humans and also understands that just because MC is flirting with him does not mean he is asking for s*x.

And although the concept of romance seems foreign to the ML, he has the most romantic bone than any ML, be it straight or gay, I've ever come across.

Spoiler

ML " Do you want me to make love to you? "


ML " I have obtained your genetic information. I have also learned some information about humans from my kin. But you as a person. I can only learn about you through each second that I interact with you, your every expression and every word "

ML "If you can no longer determine what needs to be done, or have nothing else that you would want to pursue, why not surrender yourself to me?"

ML " I will give you a home."

Each line had me squealing like a pig istg

[collapse]

Their interactions alone carried the entire story through to the end. I loved it so much. Thank you so much for translating this masterpiece. Also cannot wait for the 'weightless' to be translated. I'll be camping. <<less

This novel had me relishing every chapter, but I find myself unable to fully describe how I feel. It’s like when I cook and eat having gotten used to the taste. Then I cook a very small meal and find myself cherishing every bite! When it’s finished, I try to cook it again but the taste is not the same. So, I close my eyes and try to remember the taste, over and over again. I then find myself somehow satisfied, but still wanting despite being sated. Thank you for... more>> translating! This was a very good read. <<less

I'm writing this with tears and a snot-drenched face. Surprisingly though, I did not have a heavy feeling in my chest after reading this instead, it left me wanting the freedom and the love he had. I know this story is really literary and I would definitely reread this to explore it more. Because of this piece, I have now become a fan of the author. I just love how the way she wrote this, it was the core of it. I was inspired to be like them, I want to write an art piece like this someday.

This is so magnificent and beautiful. You should to read this at least once in your life.

Edit:
Oh damn, this is the only work of the author that has been translated in NU. <<less

i took interest in this story when I read the description, then upon seeing the trigger warnings, I still continued to read despite it being human x alien/monster/tent**les. I have never read a relationship dynamic such as that, so it was somewhat refreshing for me.

... more>>
Spoiler

it started off full-on kinky, hot, smexzy smut, but don't forget about the fact that it has r*pe. As the story progresses, their dynamic was turning into — not exactly sweet — rather, it was indescribably heartwarming, more complex understanding, and lots of throwing things about philosophy, which was told perfectly for the readers to understand. Nearing the end, it made me emotional, but it wasn't enough to make me cry. The last chapter was heart wrenching. It made me wanna read more. However, every story has it's ending, hence, i'd just go over the corner and sulk for a moment.

[collapse]

overall, I highly recommend this to readers who only got a spare time to read something short, but would definitely leave an impact (whether big or small) to the brain y'all got.

P.S. Read the description and tws first provided by the translator before proceeding. <<less

This novel is art, the history is so intense, deep, beautiful, and I can't stop to think about the structure of the history is perfect in each word one by one is perfectly used and justified creating this text full of feeling and introspection about life.

If you are not sure, to read this, or just read the first chapters, and thought badly of this novel, take advantage and give the opportunity to this story and yourself.

It's a bitterweet ending romance wise. The story is thought provoking. There's some layer of philosophy.

I thought it was a yellow book at first. Should have put a tw.

Nevertheless, it is a nice read. It managed to get me out of my reading slump

Poignant and yet so beautiful!!! I am so in ℒℴѵℯ*¨*• ♡ with this novel!

And yes, Jiayun and Jianing! Unforgettable characters indeed! I really don't know what to write because this is too beautiful to describe! Don't get discouraged by the tragedy tag by the way, just read and give this story a chance! This is worth your every tears belive me!

Also the smut is just a bait! A BAIT! The story is mesmerizing, this deserved a higher rating IMHO! I hope readers will give this a chance, there's apparently a... more>> sequel and prequel but the translator is busy I guess, but I am thankful that she gave some of her spare time to translate this one! I hope she finds time to translate the other 2 novels as well by the same author!

According to the translator this is a Blue Dust Trilogy! So I am really looking forward to the other two! I will definitely wait! Highly recommended for sure, a perfect 5! ♡ (.◜ω◝.) ♡ <<less

I came here for the smut. But the smut feels like making love. Oh my gosh the feels! I feel sort of sad for their ending, and the protagonists' journey in the Cerulean Planet made me somehow nostalgic. Like a bittersweet memory that's very precious to me but I can no longer relive. I didn't cry (like the others lol) but the story left me a heavy feeling in the chest. Overall, a very fantastic story of human x non-human love! The great translation did it justice.

I think this one is kind of overrated. There really wasn't much development between MC and ML - or rather, it wasn't fleshed out enough to make me care for these two characters.

One can question whether this counts as BL/yaoi, since the ML (if one can call 'him/it' that - sorry but calling it 'they' is just confusing and seems to be used just for politically correctness) doesn't have neither biological s*x nor gender. Doesn't stop the two from having lots of s*x, since the love interest can shapeshift in... more>> rather convenient ways. So convenient that I found it weird how quickly the alien love interest became so doting towards the MC. The MC seems too childish to be a fighter pilot in space, and quite dumb and narrow-minded, which logically speaking would be unrealistic for a guy who has lived and worked in space for years and probably encountered many alien species.

I honestly don't get why the love interest falls for him, except they're alone together and there's no one else to care about. The MC falls for the love interest for the same reasons - and because the love interest basically fullfills all his needs and desires and acts both as parent and lover all in one.

There are lots of s*x scenes, but they felt kind of uninteresting to me since the love interest only does them to control the MC (at first) and later to keep him happy. The alien itself is as*xual and cannot feel any physical sensations.

The premise is interesting but the execution is lacking. It was okay, but nothing I found deep or moving. I think people rate it highly because the love interest/ML is basically wish fullfillment. If you want a fleshed-out sci-fi with compelling characters, look elsewhere. <<less
