This novel had great potential (with the MC author being the one to transmigrate into his own novels rather than some random person), but was poorly executed. The whole premise of this transmigration business was that author's novels had bad endings and the MC had to fix that. You'd think with a novel with this kind of set up, there would be a sophisticated plotline like SVSSS and QWFD with a quick-witted MC.

The plot is basically nonexistent. The MC's charms basically diverts... more>> the ML's original ambitions that lead to the bad ending within the first chapters of each arc. From then on, it's just fluff with one or two troublemakers stirring up trouble. Don't get me wrong, the fluff is super cute, but what is even the point of the MC's "change the bad ending" mission if the whole problem gets solved in the very first chapters of the arc?????

This novel is basically slice of life focusing on the interactions between the MC and a cat, the ML.

I prefer novels with a good balance between fluff and serious story telling. This novel just doesn't cut it for me. I got bored midway through the third arc. I might pick this up again if I ever get in the mood for pure fluff, but this novel has exhausted my 'fluff' spirit for the time being.

The set up is very similar to "Quickly Wear the Face of the Devil" and "Who Touched My Tail?" in the sense that:

  1. The original character of the novel that they transmigrate into had a bad ending and the transmigrator is tasked to change that ending.
  2. The transmigrator is supervised by a system with a human-like personality.
  3. The novel is split into arcs with each arc being a different story. Each arc lasts until the transmigration's body reaches the end of it's lifespan in that world.
  4. The ML also the same in each arc and always transmigrates into the villain's body
Spoiler

Arc 1: Sci-fi and space traveling novel

  • MC - Human. Devoured by villain in the original novel.
  • ML - Heidis beast. Eli Osrian, is the commander of the seventh military division of the Heidis race and heir to the throne.
  • Novel's protagonist - unknown (never appears)
  • The trouble maker (plot bunny) - Ivy Osrian, the third prince and most wanted criminal. Envies the ML's rights to the throne and takes interest in the MC.

The Heidis race seems to be a celestial beast with feline characteristics and seems to be about the size of a wildcat. They have a human and beast form, but ML stays as a silver tiger tabby cat form in consideration for the frail constitution of the human MC.

All the different races comes from different planets. The place of the Heidis race seems to have multiple names (Star Empire, Black Empire, Capital Star), while humans resides in Earth. The MC and ML first meets at an unknown planet.

This arc ends with the MC's death with an unknown cause.

Arc 2: Xianxia/ Cultivation world novel

  • MC - Heaven's Peak Master of Guan Lan Sect. Tortured to death by villain in the original novel for his unfair treatment during his disciple years and for locking him up for a month.
  • ML - Heaven's Peak direct disciple, Jiang Tan. Born with the pseudo spiritual root. Discovered to have a third of the ancient Taotie beast bloodline.
  • Protagonist - Shen Yan. Heavenly spiritual root. Possesses a signet ring that contains the Vatican Lotus coveted by MC. Maintains amiable relationship with MC in the second life and eventually gives him the Vatican Lotus. No other role besides that.
  • Troublemaker (plot bunny) - forgot his name. Chief disciple. Murdered his senior sister who was the sect head and framed the ML for her death.

Seems to be based off of Scum Villain Self-Saving System, but this arc is wayyy inferior to SVSSS.

To change the novel, the MC steps in and releases the MC half a month early from the storage room. The ML temporarily lost his memory for unknown reasons and immediately took a liking to MC. MC feeds the ML a bunch of spirit stone causing his cultivation to soar much faster than his previous life. The MC lowers the standards for entry to a treasure filled land so that the ML can enter this time, but the ML gets framed during this time. MC destroys his own cultivation and became crippled to save the ML. The ML plots revenge, eventually achieves it, and lives happily ever after with the MC for about 3000 yrs.

Arc 3: Futuristic/ Gaming world novel

  • MC - Magician, Sen Luo. Killed by the protagonist in the original novel: "The powerful magician who occupied the title of the 'number one expert' for six years was a cannon fodder that fell at the hands of the young man in front of him."
  • ML - Death God and the Netherland Dungeon boss, Asa.
  • Protagonist - Thief, Ye Yan. Seems to disappear after the MC's death is averted in the second life.

This arc has a interesting setting. It's futuristic with an advanced gaming system in which the gamers lay inside a capsule and so their awareness and sense are completely in tuned with the game world. They could even heightened some senses to 'enrich' the experience. The ML does this to the MC for smut purposes. It's pretty explicit by this point

[collapse]

What makes this novel so different and special is that it is the author himself who is transmigrating into all his past novels starting with his first novel. As he goes through the novel, he reflects on his mistakes, esp. with the plot holes and unpleasant endings.

Having the author as the transmigrator was a great idea, but that's where my positive impression ends. Aside from the initial setup, there's barely a plot development in each arc.

    • Excessive focus on the fluff. It's interesting that the author, being a cat owner, is able to tame the villain who takes on the form of a house cat. At first, I thought it was super cute for a callous villain to become a cute, lovable kitty. However, this whole novel basically became a 'slice of life' of fluffy interactions between the author and his cat (the villain and ML). The villain stays in his cat form through most of each arcs. There's only plot progression when the ML villain is in his orginal form, which is rare.

    • The plot development is poorly done. There's hardly much of a plot since it's mostly fluff. The plot is literally just a random side character causing trouble (and basically getting in between MC and ML) just for the sake of causing drama. These side characters are very 1D which makes the plot so boring and makes me wonder what is even the point of this drama.
    • Lacking relationship development.You'd think with all this fluff between the MC author and the cat villain, there would be a good relationship development.... but noooo. They don't actually talk alot and they've never had a serious conversation. To be honest, I don't really see these two as a couple since the ML is always in his cat form. I see them more as a pet/owner relationship. They do act more like a normal couple when the ML takes on his human form (cooking, taking care of MC, and lots of bedroom activities), but this is rare so...

Synopsis: Gu Yan is an author who is black in a sense that his novels' ending are bad. His readers' collective anger transported him to his novels' world.

Small note: (Might be considered spoilers so please be careful)

Spoiler
  1. These 'people' (who fell in love with him) is actually one soul. No cheating here.
  2. This novel can get a little r18.... Maybe more than a little. No beastiality though. ML can shift but never does anything sexual in said form. Just sells a lot of meng.
  3. ML is a cold person but sweet to MC. Only to MC. Very devoted
  4. Cats. Cats cats cats cats kitten. Kittens kitten. Fluffy fluffy fluff.

I Google translated this novel till the end. Although there were some parts that I couldn't understand, I got the gist. I swear this is a really really good novel.

If you love cats and yaoi, this is the novel for you. I love fluffy kittens so I loved it so much. The ending is also very good. I just wished there was more chapters. <<less

QWFOD is about revenge. Spreading IQ is about a bored chess master type toying with his victims. Delusions of a Harem is about defeating those scheming green tea protagonists. This one is all about cats. I love cats.

There are four worlds that MC travel as he state that he only works on four novels in five years. I saw comment that compare this novel with qwfd. For me there is no comparison. Just the same multi realms genre maybe. In Qwfd, the MC is so good at getting back or faceslapping the hostess or protagonist in each worlds that I always in a state of anticipation on each chapters. Plus, how the MC already OP and like to act himself into whatever cannon fodder body he is using. How he manipulate people around him and attract the ML attention in each realm is so satisfying to read. I haven't found any similar novel as good as that yet. This novel, it can be light reading. Not much suspense as in every world, MC task is to change the bad ending which mean the distruction by the main villain. The story focus on the MC and the villain, not much story about the protagonist and other people. Plus, the villain is the ML, so it's simple as abc for the MC to prevent bad ending as the ML very much obey everything MC said. (Not included in bed..)

If you love, or even like, Quickly Wear the Face of the Devil, then you will similarly love or like this story. It’s a lot fluffier!!!! If you’re a cat lover then this is definitely for you and if you adored the QWFD arc where ZYS was a supermodel then I repeat, you will love this story.

So. Much. Fluff!!!!

Meng all the way~
Spoiler

Although the first arc ended sadly it’s not unfulfilling, just wait for it...

[collapse]

There are some R-18 scenes but you can easily skip them without effecting the story. What I like best about this story is that it doesn’t drag out, each arc is properly fleshed out and it doesn’t go on and on forever. Plus, its not repetitive so while you will overload of fluff you won’t of boredom.

10/10! Recommended!! <<less

I did it. I Google translated this novel till the end. I really really like cats and fluff, so it was mostly positive experience and no complains because, you know, CATs. I love the novel, it is very light without any tragedy and you always know that everything will end happy. Both MC and ML are really cute. Their interaction is simply kawaiii. Third world has some similarities with reader and protagonist have to be in love- novel but only few🙀. So if you are in bad mood read this novel and enjoy 😊

If you are a cat loving fujoshi, you will definitely enjoy this :3 An MC that has lived by the principle of 'why have a romantic relationship when you can raise a cat?', and a very handsome, cold (only cuddly with the MC) ML that just so happens to be able to take the form of a cat~ There is soooo much fluffy cat cuddling <3

If you are a cat person... damage over 9000.

Seriously cat-centric, multiple world/transmigration story. MC has a system, a 'golden finger' in that he's the author and pretty much is favored like crazy by each world's Rules, but he's not as focused on face-slapping or missions like many other similar stories. Instead, he's pretty much a lazy pet-owner. The story is more focused on the MC and ML's relationship progression and enjoying the change in scenery/worlds. While there are some good emotional variations and a bit of angst, most of the... more>> story is overwhelmingly fluffy and pet-focused (which is really... not a bad thing for cat-people ok?)

Time to scroll through my phone for more kitty photos... <<less

If you want to read a story about two relatively flat characters obsessively love each other for no real reason other than it being predestined, this is the novel for you.

Each world roughly plays out the same:

The ML is some sort of important figure in the world and the MC transmigrates into canon fodder that ends up either picked up by the ML or bumping into the ML. After the mc's status gets upgraded by the ML to some sort of high position by his side, the MC and ML... more>> proceed to shamelessly dote on each other as the arc devolves into aimless fluff and how superior/amazing they are as a couple. Outside of the first arc that ends with separation, there is little to nothing that can get between the two leads because it's predestined that they will get together and stay together. While the generic relationship obstacles in CN novels aren't exactly better, with how quickly everything is resolved by the ML and how little there is to their relationship, the entire novel just comes off as boring.

The real nail in the coffin is how the fluff isn't good fluff. Despite being the whole selling point of the novel, the amount of actual meaningful interaction between the two leads is close to 0. Considering the amount of time the ML spends in his cat forms, it's difficult to even justify they're in relationship at times since it can often read as a guy who is obsessed with his cat who sometimes turns into a hot guy who he f*cks. Maybe this sort of set up is enough for some people, but I personally need a bit more to invest me in the outcome of these cardboard cutouts.

On the bright side, there are cats. <<less

The characters are flat and boring. The story is bland. The author’s extreme cat fetish annoys me.

There are too many paragraphs where the MC just dotes on ML in cat form. That’s okay and all, but I would prefer to have actual dialogue between two people and some plot progression. Half of the story is just MC spoiling his pet cat. As for the story itself, its not that great.

I love this story. Like the people who review before me; if you like QWFD or any type of that kind genre, you'll definitely like this story. Added bonus if you're animal lover (or mainly cat lover) then you'll love this story.

The characters are cute. Both MC and ML have quite a lot of fluff going on (whether cuteness over load or bed related scenes). Interaction of these two are so adorable that it made me feel like I ate a bowl of Lucky Charms just to say this "they... more>> are magically delicious!"

Story of each arc are satisfying and honestly there were some nearly made me in tears.

Ending Story 1 (Future Interstellar) and Ending Story 3 (Virtual World Game)

As for the ending of the book, I liked it. I think how the author end it is good for me. But I hope added like fan service (or after main story service) like some of the books.

Of course big reveals who is who, what is what and how is how. That's also satisfied me.

I can only say ML is always patient anything related to MC. <<less

Okay first and foremost, since this really bothers me...
This novel is barely like "Quickly Wear the Face of the Devil" at all!!!! At most it has the "Quick Transmigration" aspect in common, but the tone and plot is 100% different. TPWSTKMFMI is basically pure fluff in a nutshell, especially for cat lovers like me <3

--------------------

Summary: As an author known for writing great stories with horrible endings, MC finds himself torn from his beloved kitty and being sent into the worlds of his novels. Luckily in every world he runs... more>> into the very protective ML, who bears an odd resemblance to his cat...

Pros:

  • so so so much fluff!!! I can't understate this enough lol. <3 (As a cat slave myself, I totally related to MC lol.)
  • The one arc that ends in tragedy is so well done, it made me cry.
  • The ending was fantastically fitting and sweet!!!! Probably one of the sweetest endings I've seen in a quick transmigration story.
Cons:

  • The 3rd arc (Gaming world) was rather pointless and boring without any stakes whatsoever, with the ML constantly hopping identities.
  • The writing style can sometimes be rather awkward and childish, constantly referring to MC as "the youth" despite his character in that world not being very young, etc.
In general the plot is pure "wish fulfillment fantasy" and isn't anything to write home about; you read this for the sweetness alone lol. <<less

Aww.... as a cat lover. I super love the story due to all the fluffs as well as yaoi in it.

Too sad that this story only have 4 arcs. I could totally go for 20+ arcs more ;)

The mc's worldview collapsed and went bent - just cool and follow the flow and the ML was totally "sticky" and cute.

Lastly, damn all sort of crabs and crabby patties in this world. All because of you.... wuwuwu. You hateful crabs. Don't let me find you or i'll boil and roast you... more>> to death. Whoever lead you into existance in light novels causing trouble to both authors and readers should burn in 18th level of hell. <<less

A little disappointing for me. I have read QWFD & compared to that it is a little boring. It's all about the cat!! How many times do I have to read about the ML petting the cat sheesh!

Since I have only read the 1st volume lets see if the novel gets better from 2nd vol onwards.

Is there such a thing as fluffy possessiveness? Yes. Yes there is such a thing. This novel is one such example. Ml, I want to say is quite normal for someone who's stoic, commandeering, and silently aggressively male, until he meets the cat slave MC who turned him into a sticky kitty. Aww!!! Ooey gooey!!!
Spoiler

Even though the first arc ended up quite sad (I still get sniffles thinking about it)

The more you read on, the more progress you see in their relationship. You can see how Mc's feelings for the ML evolved through the arcs and you get to experience how much more ML love the MC in each incarnation and how much more sticky he becomes. It is quite adorable!
