I haven't completely finished reading PBD yet, which is why I've rated this a 4 star as others have said it will get better. I'll continue reading future weekly updates, but here is my opinion so far:

This novel is like one of those soap operas that needs a big mind map to see who likes who.

Synopsis was a little misleading. Going into this, I thought it would be another tragedy with a tinge of sadness between both couples. However most of this novel is really just the MC speaking out... more>> his actions. For example, he pours tea, or he called for the servants, or he brewed medicine, or he checked up on the guests, or he played chess. It's like the author is trying to push this series past 50 chapters by uselessly listing out everyday actions half the time. Other than this, the author also tries to add in a love triangle which puts me off for most novels tbh. For readers who go into this only reading the synopsis, they'll assume the ML is someone else and end up confused or extremely disappointed. To me, I only realized who the real ML is by ch. 20 and that cleared up LOTS of questions.

Idk, the love triangle the author pulls isn't very successful and on top of that, she adds in other feelings from multiple side characters which, in the end, just looks like a half-assed cheesy soap opera. The MC also lacks lots of feelings and opinions on the situation he's thrown into. He's forced to be this scapegoat for Tian Shu and Nan Ming and yet, he doesn't really think much about the licentious acts he's forced to put on, and offers little regret. I mean, MC is so unfortunate throughout the whole book yet he remains inert and unfazed, or sighs if he's really pressured. And worse, ML suffers from this as well! He has little to no personality. I mean seriously, this guy is a literal piece of cardboard feigning as wrapping paper. Sometimes the author sprinkles promiscuous bits in between MC and ML but in the end it just confuses the audience more as we have NO idea what's going on in their heads, and what they truly think of each other outside of saying hello or offering tea and exchanging pleasantries. Also, the couple that MC is trying to pair is quite frustrating as well. Tian Shu is fine, he has lots of personality and although we don't get to see into his thoughts, his actions speak for themselves and his soft aura is easy to differentiate miles away. He's probably the best developed character in this whole novel. What I don't get is Nan Ming and how he can be so hot headed and easily poked towards Tian Shu. The man is impulsive and gets on peoples nerves. After chapter 38 or so, the pairing just seemed to drag on for the sake of the plot. I wish we moved onto another couple after


MC was stabbed by Mu Ruoyan and ranaway with Shan Chengling after that whole 'beating the mandarin ducks' arc. His role as Li Siming was sweet at times but also quite cruel for every character involved.


Either way, I heard 10 Miles Peach Blossom plagiarized this web novel and for the sake of injustice, I will read this through to the end. Even with all these setbacks though, I do recommend the novel if you're into heartache and indecisive, unrequited love. I respect that this author still has her story up since 2007, and in a way this novel can be described as 'transmigration before transmigration even existed'. That's all I have to say, again I hope others will read this novel and give their opinions on it as it can be pretty diverse considering the plot. <<less

The english trans isn't complete yet so I read some MTL and understand most of the plot somehow and oh my god this is one of the most beautiful story I ever read I actually cried a bit (it's hard for me to cry so this is a hardcore angst in some way, for sure)

The romance is SO subtle like the ML probably isn't the one you think it is at first basically u somehow will discover who the ML after more than 20 chapters it's kinda k wording... more>> me lmao I can't wait to uncover how the story would be.

Actually this is a light, simple read but rich in emotions (there's no papapa scenes leme tell ya). The whole thing got more complicated than u thought it would be and it's so sad seeing how MC will act in the future cuz he deserve love so much u just want to hug him and keep him warm bc the world somehow always had its way to make him end up alone (a tiny spoiler) if weren't for ML that had to do something to change it. But actually I want extras of MC's POV like I'm curious how he actually felt when things start to become messier

Anyway I definitely recommend this 💜. <<less

Ah I was really curious about this story since I actually liked san sheng san li. I'm not really sure about the whole plagiarism saga but I'm not going to go into that.

The premise of this book was really interesting, with MC trying his best to make things hard for tian shu but not really succeeding. For those curious, yes ML is ... more>>

MC's good friend Heng wen. Also another spoiler

MC actually fell in love at first sight with ML like thousands of years ago but due to his destiny being destined to be alone, he didn't dare to say anything. MC needs like 1000 hugs.


There's more to meet the eye on why MC is chosen to carry out the punishment and fate is a big thing here where a debt from a previous life can carry over and tie people together. I just want to rant on the plot here:


So MC accidentally got tangled up in the fate between tian shu and nan ming (hence leading MC to rise to the celestial realm due to that tied fate) hence in an attempt to save MC, tian shu actually suggested sending MC to the mortal realm, starting this whole plot, instead of the jade emperor just smiting MC. So many stuff happens and there's a fox demon who love ML and all and then towards the end of the love trial, ML kind of goes berserk?? And more stuff happens and fox saves ML, losing his own cultivation and bam MC is stuck with child version of ML and tian shu and has to take care of them for a few days in the mortal realm. That part was actually really cute where MC has a habit of sleeping with ML but as a kid, ML doesn't recognise him, so was like 'why are you getting into my bed?' then when MC finally got his own bed, ML is the one who comes and wants to sleep with MC. Anyway, so they return to heaven eventually and MC has to be punished because of all the havoc he created. He also finds out that by letting the fox demon near ML, they too have their fate tied together. MC's like, I'm really destined to be alone and at that point, I really wanted to smother MC with love. So due to MC's debt to tian shu, he gives TS his immortal core thing since tian shu's own was broken and before he could really die, he decides to give his remaining powers to the demon fox (who lost his own cultivation and was like a normal fox) and tells the fox everything about ML like how he doesn't like sweets, and tells the fox to take care of ML. MC wanted to see ML one last time before he dies but doesn't want to do so in his real form so he borrows the fox form to visit ML and in his mind tells ML how he loved him for thousands of years (CRIES!!!!) then MC leaves when ML is sleeping, escapes back to the mortal realm to die, thinking it's for the best that ML does not see him die so he won't be that sad. Just as his soul starts to scatter, he thinks he sees ML beside him and thinks that it must be illusion but it was nice to have that illusion. So ML actually realised what was happening when MC left the celestial realm, rushes over, sees MC dying and kind of loses it. Long story short, he gathers MC remaining soul and like somehow brings it back to the reincarnation cycle and MC spends decades reincarnating from small to bigger live forms and ML is always there too. Eventually becomes a human again, accidentally eats another elixir pill, ascended AGAIN, finds ML and says he owes ML and will take forever to pay him back, indicating their fate is now tied together and ML's fate to that demon fox has already been returned by MC so ML doesn't owe the demon fox anything then HE. Omg the ending bit where the angst just slowly ramps up starting from the children form bit WAS SO SAD


Read the spoiler only if you want to know the whole plot. I just wished there was more like maybe a bit more of ML POV or something. <<less

Ahh, I've wanted to read the translated version since I speed-watched 10 Miles Peach Blossom which was stated to have plagiarised this novel (no offence meant to 10 Miles fans). Previously, I only got to read the spoilers, which already fed my imagination, now I finally got to read this, thanks to dear translator! Thanks for the translation, they're wonderful! ;3

I skimmed read this a few years back so I don't really have a fresh recollection of it other then it being a very lovely read and some small snippets. I started this because I was reading ten miles when the translator dropped it because of the (honestly very accurate) plagiarism accusations. It was so confusing at first then midway (quarter?) everything became clear but then BOOM another plot twist it was quite surprising. The way they were all entangled in this web of debts that started all because of... more>> 1 mortal man which literally messed up order in heaven was so interesting (and angsty)

I read this a few years back so I'm not that fresh on the details and I'm following the translation so it not quite there yet but I remember being a little grossed out at


the MC and ML's first kiss?? I believe ML was in a child form and had a child's mentality with the MC being in his adult form and having to take care of ML and the star lord dude (?) honestly I hope I was just reading too fast and my memory is failing me because that part was quite :/



I loved how angsty it got at the end but daamn couldn't the author give us a pov of the ML when he saw the MC's soul scattering away? I'm afraid a recount from the friend on what happened isn't good enough hmph


A very very sweet loving relationship and I still tear up when I remember the MC's instructions to the fox or

ML raising cockroach!MC

This is honestly one of the best novels on this site, even though I have... mixed feelings about it.

The reason I have mixed feelings can be attributed to the fact that I had to MTL the latter half of the novel since the translation didn't catch up, and it was hard to understand, especially with how it's written.

But on the other hand, it's still quite a strange story.

The story is about an immortal, who is sent down to earth to supervise a 'trial of love' for two male immortals who... more>> had an affair. He's supposed to make it hard for them to meet each other, all to test their love.

But, he has issues doing what he has to, and eventually, everything just... devolves into a huge mess.

There's actually a logical backstory to everything that happened, and... it's quite complicated.

Also, there are some things you, the reader, should know:

  • The MC is the seme/top/gong... Not that it really matters since there are no s*x scenes.
  • The ML isn't the guy he's 'kidnapping', and staging trials for.
  • The novel is a HE, though for me, the ending was a bit annoying (the reunion at the end took like 3 sentences)
  • There are no explicit scenes - the most explicit scene is a one sentence depiction of the side CP having s*x, and the second most is a kiss between the MC and the ML.
So yeah. Should you read it? Absolutely, when it's completely translated. <<less
