Rather than sweet, I got a mouthful of dog blood every arc. And the ending is not necessarily that teeth-shattering sweetness (but it does make you sigh out of relief and give you peace of mind).

Seriously I feel kind of cheated because of the title (it should be 'Full of misunderstandings, but short' imo).

The 2nd and 3rd arc, especially the former do made me tear up a little, but let's pretend I hadn't said that.

The first two arc start with misunderstanding and kind of angst, but everything will clear on the last two chapter of each arc haha so basically the pattern is : misunderstanding - the backstory of the misunderstanding - the climax when one realized the truth - misunderstanding cleared - happy ending! Each arc has 7 - 9 chapters.

Actually I'm not a fan of "misunderstanding troupe", I am the haters of that kind of story. Fortunately, it's a short story so it's not really that annoying and dragging plus the ending... more>> of each arc is always cute! <<less

Three short stories - each sugary sweet. The first tells of an unrequited love, the second of a marriage almost broken, the third of estranged childhood friends falling in love.

3 star because of 2nd arc.

Okay so I don't care about the oath you made. Gong Qin, why have you never said I love you to He Ling, even after you guys made up why have you never said I Love You to He Ling just why? Do you know what He Ling felt because you never said that, Even though it's just a word, it still shows you affectionate towards you lover. Just the 3 word "I Love You" Can make a person soul tremble.

Why are you treating the... more>> 3 word I Love You as a joke?Do you know what he felt?He feel depressed, angry, sad, sorrow. He love you so much... Yet you...

Even though they made up I'm still mad at Gong Qin ugh I feel so disgusted he is just the worst.I feel so bad at He Ling.
Also, Gong Qin, why did you punched He Ling when he kissed you, are you crazy?!!!

f*cking hell Im so furious!!!!!
Gong Qin you freaking Lunatic Crazy f*cking Bastard!!!!!

Humans are truly greedy bastard who doesn't cherish other people's feeling. Ugh now I really feel more sad for He Ling because I felt it before, it is worse Than a torture I'm telling you. <<less

Just as the title sweet and short three stories. Maybe not necessarily that much sweet because there are some misunderstandings, angst and so on. But still my heart is so warm and sweet because at the end love was able to overcome all the bad things. I especially liked it because author told the story in both perspectives.

[Also at the last arc how ning can that little s*upid cute rabbit still doesn't know how he has also fallen long ago but babbling so much we all know that... And how... more>> xia yan is soo relieved because he know now... Its really heart warming ending to the whole novel]

So that's why I gave 5 stars. <<less

sweet, although short lives up to its name; these are short stories that are really short, very easy to read in one sitting. Overall, it's fairly average. These stories are all centered around misunderstandings, which is a guilty pleasure of mine lol. The only story I have problems with is the third story.

  1. sorry, i've fallen for you (3/5) - this was cute. Frustrating, but cute. It's the most enjoyable and shortest out of the three. It's also a bit unexpected, although it's fairly obvious that they will end up, I still had my own doubts.
  2. the seven year itch felt a bit sweet (2.5/5) - the epitome of miscommunications! I wanted to rip their hairs out--i mean, they're MARRIED! They still did not grapple the idea of COMMUNICATING for 7 years??? But it's sort of cute in the end, but yes, it was frustrating.
  3. because I love you (1.5/5) - this has a tw for implied sexual assault and child abuse that was uncomfortably lenient, so immediate deduction of points. The other points deducted are just from the fact that this was the least enjoyable story. (Sigh).

I'm always bias towards bl stories so despite the cliché plots, I give 4 Stars!

Here's a breakdown of the short stories:

Title: Sorry, I've Fallen in Love with You (Ch.1-7)

... more>>
  • a school life story (specifically college life)
  • chalk full of misunderstandings and coincidences
Title: The Seven Year Itch Felt a Bit Sweet (Ch. 8-15)

  • an office romance (the couple are career men and have been together for seven years, as the title suggests)
  • chalk full of misunderstandings and coincidences
Title: Because I Love You (Ch. 16-26)

  • childhood friends
  • chalk full of misunderstandings and coincidences
Overall: Since the stories are short, everything is centered around romance. There's some drama here and there, but of course, everything is resolved by the end and every one lives happily ever after! This is an ok read for those looking for a short, but sweet story; a break from those looooong ass novels. <<less

Overall 4.5 stars

Sorry, I've Fallen In Love With You

4 stars

... more>> So sweet. Wouldn't call it a miscommunication as much as a false assumption that was sweetly resolved

The Seven Year Itch Felt A Bit Sweet

4 stars

I love this story with an established relationship. Damn that friend for butting into their relationship and instilling doubt in He Ling. Bet that friend is a single dog

Because I Love You

5 stars

Wow, that was a good one. There was a lot of pain, heartache and angst. Maybe that's why the last one is my favourite

All these stories are full of sweet fluff (eventually) <<less

Short angsty stories about misunderstandings and feelings that aren't expressed. Mini soul-healing stories. Simple but good.

This is good lie, because instead sweetness you will get sadness. I think every chapter was a bit angst.

If you want the small spoiler so it's here.

[First story about two silly students, classic misunderstanding.]

... more>> I like it more than all, at least because it's reasonable that schoolers is blunt a bit.

[Second story about two idiots who lived together many years, but can't say something each other. ] I understand, but you really s*upid, you are damned married.

[Third story about two jerks one of them afraid to speak, another just too dense to realize. ] They're, also s*upid children which have grown. Child friends, there are really s*upid guy, but it's fun a bit.

Conclusion: Everywhere lie, sweet story can be sorrowful story. All characters of this novel is s*upid idiots, which can't just speak with his crush. Anyway it's was fun and cute.

[3/4] because it's not much bad or good, but I enjoyed it. <<less

What is with the "sweet fluff" nonsense??? The third story was straight up terrible. I'm not going to spoil anything, but don't delude yourselves. It's this bizarre, messed up part of BL novels that really irks me- and the way readers interpret it. Whatever.

Edit: just want to say that Game Loading is one of my favorite novels, so it's not like I'm trying to hate on this author

I love Long Qi and I love dog blood so this was a pretty fun and quick read. If you came here purely for fluff I wouldn’t read as it’s much more in line with melodramatic one shots purely driven by misunderstandings. The only reason why I gave it a 3.0 was because of the third (and last) story. I really just am not a fan of stories where one character is clearly uncomfortable with the other but is then forced by others into falling in love, It’s just always... more>> made me feel icky. If that doesn’t bother you then you would probably like it a lot more than I did. <<less

Quick read about common tropes in BL like misunderstanding and years of separation due to that. Nonetheless, it was a nice break from wuxia BL lol
