DescriptionLinks are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.
In this world, there is always one type of man who does not want to improve themselves. They care only for themselves, by whatever means possible. They make their life goal to be kept as a lover, and they will use their lovers up until they have no more use.
Self-Reliant System: Our goal is to rise up! Our goal is to persevere! We must be self-sufficient and self-reliant!
When the system has bound numerous souls to enter into the bodies of those who only rely on their lovers, what could this lead to?
In other words, this is the main character transmigrating into a scummy human being, and creating his own destiny kind of story.

The system always gets paired with the seme protagonist (?)
MC is a seme protagonist. He is cold hearted, unfeeling and has low EQ. He is reborn after he dies in car accident because he was scum man in his past life. After being reborn, he gets bounded to a system. He is punished if he tries to take money, which is not earned by hard work.
The ML is short-tempered, has poisonous tongue, can beat the crap out of anyone (even the MC is not spared, hehe, he deserved it anyways).
They eventually fall in love and live a happy life and the system leaves the MC when he becomes vice president of a company where he started working as a newbie in his college days.
So, MC is okay in this arc. He gets transmigrated (?) from modern to ancient time and he gets caught with another woman by the ML on their wedding night. ML was a general but now he's a crippled man because he got shot by an arrow in his knee. The MC tries to win ML and succeeds too. Later, MC gets oppointed as a low rank official by the emperor. Their chemistry is amazing. There are schemes from emperor's uncle (?) side, many people die. MC turns the event around, saves the country (yay!!) and finally realises that he is in love with MC more than money and fame. Happy ending.
MC gets transmigrated from his martial arts world to modern world into a body who is an idol (?). He is participating in a reality show as a bad guy (He is very disliked by everyone, has a lot of black powder fans but he does it all to treat his sister, who got into an accident) ML is also part of the reality show.
• MC has very poisonous tongue and a soft heart. He is poisonous to the point that the system gets frightened by him. Also, The system accepts that he is the only host who can eat soft food (?). (In all three arcs, I like him the most because he has many likeable points)
• ML claims to be a die-hard fan of the MC (😂) He is also the one who chased the MC.
MC has a special body constitution. He can see ghosts. ML gets killed and then starts following MC to kill him. ML takes his own revenge with other people who made his life miserable.
• This one has HE too.
Tbh, I don't want to spill much on this one because it is a little different form what you read in a supernatural arc/novel. There are so many unanswered questions the MC has and the answers he gets in the end makes not only him, but the readers sad.
MC's background is like any other novel. Mother got divorced and then father married another woman. The mother-son duo started living in a crappy area (it's crappy for 'em because they used to be rich.) Later, someone came to pick MC up and he left too but he also left the ML alone. (I want to beat him for this. He is such an ungrateful human.) After he got rich he came back to find the ML but he was not there anymore and when he found out about it, he got in the car. On the way back, he got into an accident (?) and he was reborn. About ML, he is slow like a snail. (He is soooo adorable.. I wanna adopt him🥺🥺) MC, on several occasions, treats ML like shit. (Like why TF are you calling my bub fool all the time and insulting him😡🤬)
Good thing, that he realises his importance sooner. (Otherwise, I would've f***ed him up) He doesn't leave him like in his past life and made his and ML's life much better.
MC was the sixteenth child in his family and because of him, his family was ruined (?). Later, the ML comes back and they meet up again. They, together, have a tragic past because of that ML suffered a lot (after I knew about the reason, I was ready to beat MC up🙂) He was so unreliable until he was arrested by the emperor to be beheaded.
• One point I don't like about this arc, how easily ML accepted him even after knowing the truth.
• a tiny bit of sexual assault (which I'm glad didn't happen, good going ML.)
MC is transmigrated into a 'harem' novel, in which, the ML was treated very badly so later he turned into a bad person. (ML was r*ped and was bullied his whole life because of his mother's profession) MC actually saves ML from being r*ped and treats his wounds too. After that, the ML is reborn with his past life abilities. He doesn't trust MC whole-heartedly but he is possessive about him because he is the only person in his life who has given him warmth.
Good thing that MC has some brains and he actually has the system to keep his mind in track so that he doesn't take advantage of ML.
This chapter is different. They talk about other systems and the system 008 who went to all these world where the arc stories happened. Also, the points they've accumulated. Sadly, in the apocalypse arc, 008 contributed his points so that the humans can make a antidote for the zombie virus.
The system transmigrates into a scum-man's body.
I'm really happy he got a second chance bc of the system.
