The Script is Not Like This!


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

This novel can be summarized in three sentences:

Scum top abuses trash bottom.

Trash bottom loses his heart completely and leaves scum top.

All of a sudden, the scum top comes to his senses: Oh, I’ll look for the next one then, bye.

Hold on — Where’s the agreed abuse for the scum top? What happened to the promised transformation of scum top into a loyal dog? This isn’t how the script is supposed to be!

This novel is especially made as a reversal of the scum top and trash bottom tropes. There will be no three-views, no integrity, no limits and no logic.

Beware of intentional landmines, scum top and revenge against society!

Okay, I've only read chapter 1 and gave this 5 stars. Why?

One, it's well written. You can feel the sarcasm through the words. The narrator/author sounds so fed up with the scum top/trash bottom genre (similarly for the boy-girl novels - the abusive CEO and poor victim do-M female lead). Much like the author, I'm also fed up with such novels. Their unreasonableness gets on my nerves and I derive no enjoyment from them, merely wondering what's their merit and why they keep getting written.

Two, the main character seems to... more>> be my type - cynical, has enough self-love, reasonable. I'm looking forward to what other traits I'll see from him in the future chapters. The author said there's a pairing, so I'm also looking forward to the male lead and his character. Having a cool-headed MC thrown into an unreasonable setting makes me anticipate how the plot will develop and the MC's quips.

Three, the author promised smut? Sign me right up. It's a nice little bonus to an already intriguing novel.

Four, the premise, the writing, and the pace managed to hook me in with only one chapter, which is always a great sign to me. Anyway, BL lovers, give this a try. I'm off to MTL it now. <<less

This story is really good and well written. The way it breaks the cliche stereotype, the sarcasm, the jokes. I found myself laughing out loud reading these and I can't stop. Both MC and ML are really good actors :v They are so cute and funny together. KFC and McD's (ノ≧∀≦) ノ pfft. Well, even though it's good, the ending feels anticlimatic for me. But I really recommended this one. My cheeks hurt from laughing (*´・v・)

This is really more of a satire/crack story than it is a romance story. You read it for the laughs, and there is a lot of laugh points, not for the BL (there's no real *actual* romance in it).

The POV character is a gong/top, but he spends the much of the story avoiding getting with the official shou character. The guy he ends up with doesn't show up immediately, but it's easy enough to figure out who he is soon enough. (The only other sane man in these worlds...)

The... more>> only flaw I can think of in this story is the ending. A bit too abrupt, and doesn't really conclude the various loose ends I and other readers might be wondering through the story. Still, at least it does conclude, rather than drag on until the humor isn't funny anymore. So I'll give it that. <<less

I was scrolling through all these 5-star reviews wondering if anybody was thinking the same as me when I saw one 4-star review that said exactly what I thought:

I found the MC extremely unlikable.

He's very mean-spirited, haughty and has no good qualities going for him except the extreme good looks rewarded to every scum gong on default. You know what this sounds like? Yeah damn right the MC acts like ANOTHER scum gong, and the author doesn't seem to be aware of it.

Now I understand that this story is meant... more>> to be satire, but satire works when the ones who are supposed to be criticized ALL get their share. If one character stereotype gets ridiculed, while another character stereotype that's just as absurd doesn't, it just makes me think that the author of the satire is biased, you know? Only the trash shou gets terribly sh*t on the entire time, while the one who's supposed to be the author's mouthpiece forgets to roast the scum gong most of the time. Probably because he is acting their role, despite his reluctance. But instead of being self-aware to make up for it at least, he just keeps being absolutely nasty with the excuse of "I know the plot and I think their actions are ridiculous so I'm gonna make it a point to look down on them and feel good about myself." The MC is so condescending, I can't get myself to like him the way I can't make myself like bullies.

I'll confess that I haven't read that far enough to pass accurate judgment, but the first few chapters left a bitter impression on me. I have the distinct feeling that the author doesn't realize that they are glorifying victim-blaming. Yes, the shou's act pitiful and annoying, but the way the author writes it just spins it into "It's your fault for falling for a bad guy whom you know does bad things, IT'S ALL YOUR FAULT." Dude, what? I know some Chinese webnovels tend to write the shou's the same way they'd write a woman, just with a pen*s attached. So is it wrong of me to think that the author only blames stupid women who do annoying things (like expecting everything to be done their way or to become the special one, etc.) and just ACCEPTS that the scum gongs--the men--will always be like that? And they don't really need roasting because they aren't going to change so let's just only fix the women? Because that's the textbook definition of patriarchal thinking to me.

TLDR; Satire works when the characters who are supposed to be mocked are mocked, but in this case, there is just one character who acts as ridiculous as the rest but isn't roasted, so I think this is why it failed to convince me, because this satire is hypocritical, it deserves another satire written just to mock it for being so self-UNaware. <<less

The way this story using basic danmei tropes while simultaneously jabbing its cliche-ness is absolutely hilarious. The MC is so well written making readers could feel MC despair and sarcasm throughout every words. Absolutely love the interraction between MC an ML, they made me laugh so goddamn hard lmao

4 chapters, so no rating yet.

This is surprisingly funny, though. I wasn't sure what to expect from the description, but I definitely didn't expect the end of the first arc. Don't take this seriously and enjoy venting along side the MC.

The MC and other characters' dialogues are sarcastic & funny. There are a lot of jokes they make that I could relate to. Every single chapter made me laugh.

I found it perfect because I was reading it 100% for the laughs and 0% for any sort of romantic scenes. On a side note, I found it pretty easy to understand even through mtl for later chapters :)

Oh, I don't normally review this early on (I don't normally even start reading until at least 30-60 chapters have built up), but I do appreciate it when I'm considering whether to read and there're some early reviewers already.

With this story, I just had to say that, at only 4 chapters - partway into the second arc - I'm already enjoying this. It's different and its heavy irony and sarcasm is so refreshing. It's like this author loves everything that I love about BL/danmei and hates all the same horrible... more>> stereotypes, cliches and tropes that I hate and am sick of. The writing is good, and the main character is (so far) not: boring, stupid, naive, insanely intelligent/skilled or lacking in common sense. Nor is there an annoying personified system character, either. Possible ML also seems promising. <<less

The best parody of bl troupes/clichés!

The MC is the top/seme and transmigrates into the bodies of scum tops. In order to live, the MC has to follow the script of a scum top and abuse the bottom then regret his actions and become a loyal dog. This push and pull dog blood drama annoys the MC and results in the MC doing all he can to take advantage of plot holes to relax and live a carefree lifestyle without an annoyingly whiny and fragile bottom.

The plot is hilarious and is... more>> a great twist on typical scum top/weak bottom bl stories. The ending is a happy one and the MC's lover is someone no one could have imagined! <<less

A funny short story mocking the usual trope in scum gong x white lotus shou.

There is still MC and ML love story here.

Good to let down some stress and not to be taken seriously because it's all a good comedy :)

5 STARS!! 😱 This is a rarity for me. But this story was d*mn worth it. 🥰 It wasn't perfect but it met all my criteria:



... more>> BACK STORY ✔


I LOVED IT!! 😆 It's a comedy and a parody so don't expect the drama to be over the top. And it's short so there is little character development. But the fact it wasn't overly long or ridiculously repetitive is a plus in my book ➕➕

I'll say this one last thing: only read this book if you're tired of the bottom playing the victim in BL stories and need a good laugh. 😌 <<less

I didn't like the main character's personality or inner monologues, but I really liked the second main character, and the overall plot. The story and humor of it really grew on me towards the end. Absolutely love the ending and explanation.

Well.. It's funny. The whole story is amusing, and it's well-written.

I enjoyed reading all the chapters, yet after some times, I can't remember anything in this novel except that it's funny. So, it is 4 stars for me.

This was great. Completely worth the read. It’s a short parody of BL stories that had me laughing throughout the story. I loved the interactions between the MC and the ML if you’re looking for a light and fun read you should totally try this.

The first time I've read a bl parody. This is so entertaining. Just, don't expect much, and don't take it seriously since this is satirical so the "plot" is "messed up". Lol.

LOL LOL LOL! This is really one of best parody of BL novels out there. You want a comedy, a parody, a troll? Then this is for you! I really laughed my ass off the whole night, seriously. It's really amusing and fulfilling if I may say. Like you know, somehow you're just furious enough to slap some uke/shou in tragedy novels where they're abused by a slag gong, wanted to scream so badly "just go away damn it! You can go away and find someone else, why wasting time... more>> for a slag!" feeling frustrated because the kind second main lead ended up being thrown away after being used by the shou, and the shou happily back to the scum gong LOL.

And so, in this story you will find a parody for those kind of stories. Find the behind the scenes over the play, where you will know the real thoughts behind those slag gong, whose grieves reaching the heavens, always swearing and trashing the "tragic shou" for the supposedly "tragic, touching, and sad" scenes the shou acts on. Also the trembling M tendencies for those "supposedly" tragic shou, and their delight for having two male god fighting over him LOL. And here you also can finally breath a sigh of relief for those kindhearted second main lead, for they are finally able to gain their happiness, though the happiness doesnt come from the "tragic shou" LOL <<less
