Rebirth: Degenerate Slave Abuses Tyrant


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

Son of the Senior Chancellor, Luo Wei, loved the wrong person in his past life. This mistake caused his entire family to be wiped out, and in the end, he was cast down as a pleasure slave, and died in the wilderness during the depths of winter.

Somehow, the heavens did not give up on him and gave him a second chance at life. He believed this rebirth was only meant for atonement, and not love. Yet, as he plotted his vengeance, Luo Wei quickly realized that passion would again be his fatal downfall.

The once emperor, the lover from his past life, his beloved in this life, and an opposing empire’s monarch who is doomed to love him, who is supposed to be good for whom?

And who is supposed to hurt whom? A hero chasing after a dream, an empire of a thousand years, a kingdom stretching across the known lands, all flashing before the eyes like a mirage. Is it worthwhile to trade a hundred years of my loneliness to give you a single lifetime of joy?

This is the best story I’ve ever read in this site. All the characters are interesting and fleshed out. Their actions reflect their personalities; when they win or lose it’s not a plot contrivance but something that follows the character’s logic/goal/established mindset.

Be warned though, this is a wild ride that will rip out your heart and stomp it. This story takes the second chance/reincarnation trope and implements the butterfly effect and how small actions create impossible changes to the timeline.

this story is so f*cking depressing wow. There’s no happy ending and everyone loses. I’m so sad I just want to dig a hole and bury myself.

I am amazed at the characterization in this story. Both Luo Wei and Long Xuan are not entirely good people, but they have reasons for doing the things they do. Luo Wei does whatever he can to protect his family, whereas Long Xuan schemes his way to the throne. Their actions cause the deaths of many people, but they themselves are quite pitiful.

Major (and long) spoilers:
... more>>

Luo Wei's life gets shortened due to the gruesome r*pe and violence he went through. Despite that and Luo Wei's bloody reputation, Wei Lan sticks by him and helps him heal. They end up escaping for a couple years to Wei Lan's hometown after Luo Wei was rescued from being held hostage. We can see a glimpse of what a happy life means to them. Completely ordinary but happy life. However, Long Xuan finds them and wants to separate them due to jealously and takes Luo Wei for himself. He caused Wei Lan to forget about Luo Wei using this memory-wiping medicine and marry someone else. The author did such a great job for making me like and dislike a character at the same time. I hate Long Xuan for separating the couple, but his pain from being unable to capture Luo Wei's love is pretty sad. Long Xuan strongly believes that even though he made Luo Wei go through all this pain, as emperor, he could give Luo Wei happiness. Twisted way of loving, really. However, Luo Wei still misses Wei Lan and rejects Long Xuan during every interaction. 10 years later, Luo Wei eventually dies from a stab wound (although he was already at death's door due to heart disease). He requests that he sees Wei Lan from his older brother, who was bringing him home, but stops outside his house and watches Wei Lan being happy with his family before dying. He didn't want Wei Lan to remember him when his life was already short and when Wei Lan already had a family to take care of. Long Xuan cries as he watches Luo Wei get taken away and later comes to Grand Priest Fu Yi ("living Buddha") that he wants to exchange a hundred years of his happiness (in description) so that Luo Wei would only experience joy in his next life. He was willing to take on the weight of Luo Wei's sins. As for Wei Lan, 20 years after Luo Wei died, his grandson reminded him of the words Luo Wei used to form the characters of his name when he was first rescued. He kept on asking, "Who said this to me? I can't remember, but I know this person was important." He became ill, and dreamt of Luo Wei and their house. He died due to the illness worsening, and his wife gave back a piece of jade that Luo Wei gave to her to him. The jade was part of a pair that were were originally worn by Luo Wei and Wei Lan, and it commemorated their relationship. She loved Wei Lan, but she knew in her heart that she was part of the reason the two couldn't be together (she was always afraid of Wei Lan remembering Luo Wei). She sent Wei Lan off, telling him that Luo Wei was waiting for him. She requested that the two were buried together back in Wei Lan's hometown. Eventually, the two of them got reincarnated and ended up together in their third life.


It really hurts to read, but the characters are so realistic. The story is extremely engaging despite all of the war and political stuff surrounding the story. I really like that Long Xuan opened his eyes at the end, acknowledged that he was only causing Luo Wei pain, and made a huge sacrifice just so Luo Wei could be happy. Personally, I find that to be one of the strongest forms of love, being able to let the person you love go. It took a long way to get there, but I think that is quite natural. Change doesn't happen instantly. I have read a lot of novels, wherein the length isn't really justified. However, for this one, it helped develop the characters and make you sympathize with them.

This novel is one that I would remember 10+ years down the road. Just be prepared to cry lots. <<less

Such wonderful story... So many tragedy make me so sad when reading. This is a sad ending. When MC and ML (Wei Lan) couldn't together in this life but meet again in another life.

Long Xuan who really love Luo Wei pay with big price to make it happened. "To make Luo Wei happy life in another life, I with be in loneliness for hundreds year. It's really worthy" oh my....

Ive read a lot of BL novels from this site and I can honestly say that this is one of the best!

The translation is easy to understand. The plot is VERY INTRUIGING. Also, the MC, my god, I love him. He is calm and collected and he uses his past knowledge at the right time. Right now, I want him to be happy because of what he experienced in his first life and to face slap that uglyshittyperson. I also love his family! Anyway, I love... more>> this novel very much! GO READ IT NOW!!!! <<less

One word: amazing.

But if you can't stand tragedy, don't ever try to read this!

I read this novel and I was down for at least 2 weeks. First 3 days I spent almost 3 boxes of tissue. Yeah, blame my weak heart. →_→

I had binged read though the entire raws upon discovering this gem. Loved the plot and it made me cry a number of times throughout the series.


I wished there was another series on the Wei Lan and Luo Wei's reincarnation so that we can see more of the fluffy moments. Plus I felt kind of bad for Long Xuan towards the end.

This is an exciting, clever read full of cunning, intrigue, and political machinations. The MC has a tortured past, which has turned him into someone who is wise and experienced, merciless and cold-hearted to his enemies, and soft to the innocent. He remains calm through his struggles and trauma, using his intelligence and knowledge to pave the way for his family's survival.

His greatest love at this point is his family. He is focused on protecting his family and keeping them alive and has completely thrown away any thoughts about romance,... more>> even though this is supposed to be a BL. Even though he finds success repeatedly and has grown in fame, he only seems himself as worthless. Although he has confidence in his plans, he has no self-esteem regarding his ability to love. He jumps from the extreme of loving one person only to feeling love for the members of his family and having no hope for romance. The character development in this series is excellent, both for the MC and the other characters.

I strongly recommend checking this series out. The opening is quite gory, the emotions run deep, and the pacing is swift. The only complaint I have so far is that I would like to see more vivid action scenes. <<less

Warning: Don't read Translator Notes if you don't want spoilers.

A good read thus far. The standard rebirth+face-slapping+revenge&reconciliation story, but with an intriguing back-story.

This novel ruined me. It's absolutely, absolutely beautiful. It's so long but I don't have a single drop of regret. It's one of those novels that will stay with me for years to come. It's... I'm just speechless, it's so wonderful. I cried at some parts- but most of the time, it gave me this bittersweet, ironic smile unconsciously adorning my face. Handsdown, the novel I appreciate the most.

This is so captivating and engaging that I spent sleepless nights binged reading till my eyes and body can no longer function properly. When I am done reading this one, ironically, I can't sleep a wink. I can't stop thinking about this novel and its characters particularly Luo Wei and Long Xuan. This is truly moving that I cried a lot. At dawn earlier today, my tears won't stop from flowing when I reached the last 6 chapters of the main story. My heart went out for Luo Wei and... more>> Long Xuan.

While I am very happy for both LW and WL in their third life, I also yearn for Long Xuan with LW. I love strong characters, love and hate relationship (these initial reasons why I was attracted to this novel) so I can't help my longing for Luo Wei and Long Xuan to end up together, it may not be soon but at least once in one of their reincarnations.

Nevertheless, the way their second lives ended like that, made this novel very heart-tugging. I am very satisfied how the author presented the story overall. This novel left a deep impact on me and I won't definitely forget it for a long long time. <<less

I really love this novel.

The MC in his first life is not someone that can be considered as a good person. He betrayed his family and give up on a lot of things for his love only to be tortured and tossed into brothel to rot away. He was foolish and naive. I really cried and pissed off when reading his experiences.

In his new second life... I really wants him to be happy as he atoned his mistakes and protect his family. Just that someone said abt the author -beep-... more>> and love to teased the readers. Even though I know the ending might make cry again... I just can't help myself for wanting more chapters. This is coming from a reader that avoid sappy and sad story.

The translator of the current chapters are good at translating. He/she even add extra infos at the end of chapters. <<less

Excellent start. MC is likeable and strong. No ML introduced yet but the translation is well done and there is no fluff yet. I hope three translator can maintain this speed.

I started this novel and didn't expect that much. But no, after got through the whole ordeal to the ending, it hit me so hard.

I'm still crying a lot rn while typing.

I enjoyed the plot a lot and especially with the whole cast of characters. Surprisingly, Long Xuan ended up being my favorite one. Also, another point for this novel, for be able to provide reasonable reasons for why and how the MC got his reborn.

Very good read and recommend anyone to give it a chance

Heheh, I found this novel on Wattpad, fell in love with it decided to share the joy on NU for the fans of QWTFOTD and the youngest son of Sengun (sorry spelling). But hey it’s already here with plenty of good reviews. So I’m adding my thumbs up here. Rebirth, bl, revenge, smart MC, cold and calculating while innocent looking MC- very hard to get better. I’m a big fan of FOD, but honestly this novel just might one up it (though it’s not a system/ world hopping novel)

Thank god for a new BL read. Love QWTFD, PUP, and Shen Mua's translations so this is another great addition.

MC seems repentant and it's nice that the MC was actually a terrible person who changed for the better after reincarnating. He was the bully, not the bullied in the previous life; but he's learning from his mistakes.

Fast translation so far, and the quality is smooth with little to no errors.

I loved this novel from chapter 1 til now. This novel was a road of angst and retribution and absolutely a must read! The writing style is easy to understand and youd get hooked with every chapter and every scheme. Each character has something to fight for and has very distinct characteristics and I love that about this novel.

Really loved it. But even I know when to stop when this isnt going the way I want it to....

My ship isnt going to happen and I feel that I no longer... more>> have to waste time and fool myself into thinking they'll work out. Its a wise thing for me to do.

(Im sorry I dont ship your MC and ML, I believe in reading a novel and whoever is the first man I see with the MC is automatic the ML, even if he is scum or if hes an angel, I would go down with that ship. But I too know when to give up.) <<less

Amazing. Beautiful. Heartbreaking. I am so sorry for MC, he is just want his family to be happy because in his past life he fall in love to wrong person and eVERYTHING GOES BAAAD.

But he is so cute it's really hurt me to see he sacrified himself for the sake of his family, and forget his own happiness :")

If your heart not broken then you are not human----

... more>> In the past life, his family suffer, he also suffer.

In the present life, his family happy, but he still suffer (for me).

Then whats the point of rebirth if you still suffering ah TAT

You always get wronged and getting hurt for others, yet you happy for them but still please dont forget yourself wuwuwu


Anyway, this is really beautiful. If you love BL, read this. And even if you dont, read this.

Read this and suffer with me. <<less

Just as good as The Rebirth of the Malicious Empress of Military Lineage! I love all the scheming, and the plotting. They both go to extremes to protect their family, especially as they failed to do so in their last life. This is so very good, a must read!

I didn't like how it ended, it could be so much better in my opinion. It had so much potential, but I don't think this was fair to MC at all in the end. But despite that, I've read the first hundred chapters or so, four times or more.

I haven't shed a single tears from the first chapter till the last updated one. But as I recall all those chapter I got the stinging on the top of my nose. And then some spirit put the cut onion right next to me bringing the tears. Why does LW still has to suffer even in his second chance of life. Still have to endure everything by himself. Just like He Xiu's uncle said. He is ruthless even to himself. It really is worth to read. The emotions of the... more>> story are just stirring up your emotion as well. <<less
