Li Shuoxing, the god author of the male channel, got a love nurturing app out of thin air in his phone.

The rules of the game required him to interact with the virtual character “Su Mingqian” to increase his love value and unlock more functions.

Li Shuoxing soon experienced the true reality of Krypton Gold players.

Stage One: “tr*sh game, don’t try to cheat Krypton.”

Stage Two: “I can’t be fooled to buy a dollar gift bag.”

Stage Three: “One more Krypton and I’ll stop.”

Stage Four: “Don’t stop me. For my cub, I’m willing to Krypton the whole world!”

Stage N: “For every additional 10,000 votes, I’ll add 10,000 words; monthly votes can be lost, but the King of Fire must be won!”

This had a strong start, tugging at the heartstrings right off the bat and makes you feel excited for what's coming up, but then it goes into another direction and gets a bit tedious to finish.

I had looked forward to more in depth exploration into what smq thoughts are while he was trapped and alone like the first few days. However, the book is written from lsx's pov and focused mainly on the gameplay and his novel work ridiculously getting famous worldwide because reasons

So so cute!! Don't think too much about logic, cuteness is justice.

Besides the actual premise, it's all pretty logical though, very enjoyable light story.

In many ways I also feel the romance is better than "What to do when I became a Koi..." because that one feels like almost all the interactions are pretty pre-determined, like it's not actually their own personality or character but rather game setup. Here, their slowly getting to know each other process is more genuine.

What happened when you suddenly downloaded a Love game app on your phone and that character can interacts with you? - Love it to death of course!

That's my only comment hehe. It's too cute, too cute, too cute. Recommend 100000x. Please read

P/s the game is nicely described. The flow is good. Translator beautifully translates the story. The novel MC wrote is also quite fun to read. I hope I can read it for real!!!!

A very sweet mystery novel featuring a writer and his virtual boyfriend.

The novel itself delves deeply into the world of online novels and publishing, and is somewhat reminiscent of Bakuman, although the platform that MC utilizes to publish his works is entirely fictional. Along with it is a cast of (probably) supportive and (somewhat) well meaning friends to mercilessly taunt help MC out, well... except for that one time where they tried to make him dance in a tutu. What else are good friends for?

In terms of romance, the progression... more>> of their relationship is very fluid and never required a confession as their feelings were implicit yet mutual.

I did subtract a star because the actual delivery of the novel near the end was a little haphazard and not very well laid out.

Spoiler

The reason that ML originally came into contact with MC is pretty weak and poorly explained, and the way he fell into a coma sounds like something from a D grade action movie.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS NOVEL!
I am so in love that I am rereading as the translator is translating even though I finished the book long back. This is Seme protag. I love seme protag but this book is amazing even if he wasn't the seme.

PLOT

The plot was well laid out with almost no plot holes. The writing is amazing and so is the translation. It keeps you in without never feeling bored. Absolutely teeth rotting romance and fluff. So sweet especially the way the sweetness is shown. As... more>> a fluff lover - This is top quality work. The story moved in a fast pace without much to no dragging. It was humorous, sweet, fluff and some mystery. The ending and explanation of what happened to the ML was not that great and that's the only problem with me.

CHARACTERS

MC - The MC is a novel writer and is good at it. The MC character was amazing and his transition between taking care of a pet in the game to his lover was very smooth. His personality is also very charming and is all around a good MC for this book.

ML - The ML's transition from thinking he is a prisoner to a kept boy (by a woman) and his shock when he realizes the MC is a man are all well captured. His love towards the MC is mutual and how he takes care of the MC by making him write are all so cute.

Their interactions are to die for. I always feel like I am eating some very sugary candy whenever I read their interactions.

Also, Special shout out to the system who made all this possible and who is also a bit of a cutie.

Story: 4.5/5
Writing- 5/5
Characters - 5/5
Translation - 5/5
Fluff - 7/5

TLDR; An absolute read and GEM. READ THIS!!! <<less

Confusing at times, but overall very cute. I missed the “seme protag” tag in the beginning so half of the time reading consisted of me debating fervently who was top & bottom. I like playing dating sims, so the premise really won me over. I thought the execution was kinda rocky, but the mission quests were really fluffy & cute to read!

One of the best stories I've read recently.

From the reviews, I went in thinking that it was going to be pure lighthearted fluff, but that wasn't the case.

I would say some of the reviews glossed over or underestimated the mature themes in the story, but the mystery and tension were fairly well-done throughout.

Some examples of the darker elements:

... more>>
Spoiler

In the early stages, MC thought the ML was AI, but ML was a human being and suffered quite a bit psychologically from being forcefully jailed and oppressed under a force he could neither see nor hear.

[collapse]

Spoiler

Some hints of Stockholm syndrome and being touch/sound-starved for human interaction due to ML's forced isolation. Author portrayed it surprisingly thoroughly.

[collapse]

Although I agree with some of the reviews about how the story went a bit off-track in the later part, I also expected it to some extent because it's a CN webnovel. It was pretty foreshadowed if you have experience reading CN webnovels.

Spoiler

From the very beginning, the author foreshadowed the later competition by repeatingly emphasizing MC losing out to that other famous author and how much money and reputation the other guy had in the author circle.

If you are a frequent reader of CN novels, you'd know immediately that by the end of the book, it's pretty much a requirement of the MC to climb to a higher status and earn more money/publicity for his own novel.

CN readers will also expect this. That is not to say that this is the "best" writing, but they are the ones paying money for those chapters of the novel, so the author generally has to fulfill those expectations.

[collapse]

The science, coding and philosophy around the main plot were executed very well. The loose ends were tied up and the overall conclusion was pretty well done.

The two main characters are both OP, but they had well-fleshed out chraacterizations. I especially enjoyed the ML's character and his reactions, conflict, and "tests" toward the MC were extremely fun and felt pretty realistic.

The translation was pretty good overall, just a bit too literal at parts. <<less

This is one of the sweetest novel I have ever read!

The MC is the gong/seme/top and is one of the funniest and most adorable character ever!

The ML is the shou/uke/bottom and is one of the sweetest and most lovely character ever!

The storyline is absolutely intriguing and hilarious. The side characters are memorable and their interactions with the MC is a highlight of the story. I can not stop gushing about how good this novel is. I highly recommend reading this story for all BL lovers that want a relaxing and... more>> fluffy read! <<less

Reading this felt like finally tasting that food that you've been craving for. The taste is just right, not fancy nor underwhelming. Just right.

I really love the dynamics in their relationship. There isn't a focus on whose gong or shou. Just two people unexpectedly falling in love and being equals. I find their interactions very healthy and I also like how the struggles of being gay weren't highlighted. I admit that they exist in real life but it's also nice to have stories every now and then where the gays... more>> can love freely like hets do. <<less

Ah yes cuteness can kill you sometimes!

I took a fancy to this novel immediately because the premise, even tho seen in mangas, is never seen in chinese BL novels.I've read quick transmigrations, unlimited flows, xianxia to modern highschool romance but this is the first time i've seen the "romance with a game character" in chinese novels and it did a great job! It was really thought provoking and I constantly had theories about the game. Is it a character that became conscious? Are two worlds overlapping? Is the game... more>> character a real person? Or is it someone controlling the game character? Not only that, it managed to keep the cute interactions between the ML and MC super natural and steady too!

Since no one has mentioned this, I gotta tell you guys our MC is a seme protagonist. Since I'm not used to a seme MC.i was constantly hesitant about whether I should read it or not. But after 10 chapters or so, it didn't really matter. The romance and plot was all the same. Their interactions were cute as hell. The romance was slow and natural. Even though I don't know whether i'll read more seme MC novels but I know that I liked this all the same regardless of the perspective!

Ximu (Li ShuoXing) our Seme MC is an author. He's not crazily rich and not too destitute. Poor guy, he spent money like crazy once he met his cub in the game. Since Semes in Uke perspective novels are mostly cold, handsome or so. It felt like a breath of fresh of air to see how Ximu was so funny, cute and perverted. Willing to do anything for his cub. Doting on and teasing his cub a lot yet treasuring him with all his heart! *Sighs* The things we do for love. Poor guy! Because others thought he was romanticising his phone, he had to go through losing face many time xD. It started with just a simple interest and love for a game character but the more he interacted, the deeper he fell. And when some things were revealed, he had his hesitations but he still chose to help and love the Cub all the same.

Su Mingqian (our Cub) I thought he'll be a blushy uke. But wow, not only was he independent, understanding but also cared about the MC a lot! He didn't want to depend on the MC alone. He wanted both of them to actually have an equal relationship which they had. And can I mention how I love ukes who are proactive and take initiative to express their love? Hell yeah, Our Cub was one of them and I adore him for this.

The plot, as I mentioned above, was really thought provoking yet the interactions between our two leads were pure fluffiness and cuteness. The romance was not the brainless cute romance rather it felt really natural. It was such a steady development!How they both fell for each other slowly. Even though they didn't put their feelings into clear words (like "i love you") they both had tacit understanding and indirectly did confess. Other than the romance, it also contained the life of an author. It wasn't like "ximu wrote another successful novel" and then some schemes and then the super gifted author overcoming them or so. Rather it felt like it was depicting the real life of an author. How different authors interacted and helped each other. How our MC found the inspiration to write his novel and his struggles. We even got snippets of his novel and omg!!! I want to read his novel! It looked so interesting!!! Can I mention how cute his fans were? Calling him "Eunuch" and wanting to save his a**. Wailing so badly for updates xDDD

The kisses were at the ending chapters and they were extremely cute!!! Smut? No description but so far we just got a vague snippet of one time so I think that'll satisfy you guys!

I haven't read the ending and extras yet but I don't think there'll be anything new. The truth reveal wasn't anything extraordinary because a lot if foreshadowing was already done so you could piece the truth together (won't say anything since it'll be a spoiler). It was extremely cute but it wasn't anything special and there were plot holes here and there too. So I gave it 4 stars.I recommend you guys to read it because who doesn't like fluff? <<less

I want to curl into a ball, roll off a cliff, and die. The second hand embarrassment I'm getting from this.

Spoiler

Like the VR part. Oh my god. Just thinking about it hurts.

[collapse]

Sometimes I just want to strangle Ximu. But other than those somewhat infuriating moments, it's fluff, fluff, and more fluff piled on top of a bunch of misunderstandings.
Spoiler

Also the ML doesn't come out to the real world until the very end. Like the last few chapters. So if you are impatient then you're f*cked. Good luck.

The premise is interesting, a strong start but then it's getting boring, dull, flat and painfully slow. I skimmed a lot and still manage to get bored.

It's way too overated which in result is the huge disappointment.

I do not understand the stars and comments so good that the novel has, the setting leaves us with a boy who does not remember his life trapped in a limited world where his future romantic partner is the vigilante from his perspective, I feel a little sick to imagine that romance develops in this situation, everything sounds like stockholm syndrome.

I don't find the interactions between the characters pleasant or sincere, I can't find the comedy and I can only think that this story is not for me, I started... more>> reading the novel to relax and I only get more stressed, I won't read it anymore, I don't want to ruin the novel for those who like the novel.

I just want to leave an oasis for people like me who suffered when trying to read it and say, you're not alone, I didn't like it either. <<less

This novel is very cute and charming. I enjoyed it overall, however there is alot of issues. I felt that the author tried to fit too much in the novel and it made the story inconsistent and quite dull sometimes.

More indept, but also spoilers!:

Spoiler

The novel started out as a slice of life kinda way by showing the life of a "struggling" author (even tho he is rich asf) and his little lover that is a character in a love/life simulation game. Then it slowly turned into a mystery, which is the best part of the story imo. After that the story went all over the place. Novel rankings, a rival author that is barley in the story and only used to encourage the MC to write like 100 chapters a day, over spending, useless in game events, forcing men to cross dress for votes, selling licenses to film companies, a sick friend in the hospital for no reason other than a minor gay rumor, a chase scene where the MC literally throws money at the robber, a fan fiction contest, going into a game world, never bring a gun to a rocket launcher fight and etc. Etc. As you can see that's alot. They should have kept at just the mystery of the lover and the daily life as a author. The in game events could have been cool but it was just them collecting stuff to get a plane ticket and the other rewards were just skins or sh*t that I couldnt see, so I didn't really care about. I also wish the MC wasn't rich because as much as he says he won't be a whale and spend so much money on the game, I knew he had the money to spend, so it wasn't really a is he or isn't he going to spend money, more like when will he spend money. It would have been nice to see the author pumping out chapters not because of his black fans, but because he needs money to spoil his wife. Is it normal in china for authors to give like 5 chapters a day, cuz damn those readers are seriously blood thirsty. Even when they get like 15 chapters, they ask for more! Like if you can't wait, then don't read it till it's finshied like God damn.
