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

Who was the other’s calamity, who owed the other a debt. The matter of thousands of years past was but a wait for chance meeting.

The prime minister’s son Song Yao was infatuated with the top courtesan Yao Xiang, but Yao Xiang found true love in a poor scholar instead. Through an opportunity presented by fate, Song Yao who was in despair mistakenly ate an elixir pill and became an immortal.

In heaven, because of the affair between Tian Shu Xingjun and Nan Ming Dijun, they were punished to the human realm by the Jade Emperor. Jade Emperor then appointed Song Yao Yuanjun to go down and break up the two. Song Yao’s close friend Heng Wen Qingjun also followed him to the human world, only to meet his destined partner.

On earth, Song Yao became the son of a vassal king, forcefully taking the frail scholar Tian Shu Xingjun into the king’s residence…… The past incarnation’s entanglements, causality of reincarnation. Song Yao played the role of a connecting bridge in other people’s love story, certain that he himself was destined to be alone forever.

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 don't know about you, but Heng Wen is absolutely lovable. If you're not convinced, read till the end. Near the end is where the main CP gets together and everything plays out and I love it.

song yao x heng wen

And our protagonist Song Yao is so adorkable. He knows nothing but can still be talkative/knowledgeable about the matter. It's pretty cute seeing him interacting with his good friend Heng Wen who, at the surface, is there for the entertainment :). But the way Author wrote the transitioning of revealing how Heng Wen is more than just a friend to Song was just, beautiful. Rereading it, you can see the subtle feelings that is interlaced into every interaction, every unreadable/mysterious smile that Heng Wen shows. From friends who hid their feelings to actually becoming lovers at the end. I hope I conveyed my deep love for this novel.

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

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

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

I don't know why, but this story has such a meloncholic feel that it makes me tear up even when the plot isn't dogblood at all. Both MC & ML are lovable, and the love between them is so subtle yet so touching. They are not one of those lovey-dovey couples who stick to each other day & night, but their love is one of the kind, eternal "i'd die for u" sort of love, if anyone gets what I mean.😂

It's amazing that the author can stirr up so many... more>> emotions in the reader's heart with such a simple short story. Maybe it isn't everyone's cup of tea, but for those are familiar with fate or Karma related plots, this novel definitely has a distinct feel to it which can be very pleasing to read. <<less

Funny reading. I really enjoyed the story and find it kind of “light” no big angst parts.

Pretty good, the heartache from the MC's fate of being alone forever feeds my sad soul. It is a little idle at times but generally this is a good light read. Many thanks to the translators for the smooth translation work!
