When a Fanfic Protagonist Transmigrated into the Original Novel


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

Zhangsun Zijun and Yi Xichen are the protagonists of the novel “Record of Nine Thousand Vicissitudes.” One is solid and reserved; the other is free-spirited and uninhibited. As fellow disciples under the same master who grew up together, the two have a deep friendship that was strengthened by their numerous life and death adventures together.

However, in a popular yaoi fanfiction, the personalities of these two characters is completely OOC. Zhangsun Zijun turned into an insanely jealous, insatiable s*x addict madly in love with his wife Yi Xichen. Yi Xichen turned into a sweet, delicate little angel. Their daily life was full of kinky bedroom activities…

Suddenly, the Zhangsun Zijun character from the fanfiction was transported into the world of the original novel.

I only read the first ten chapters.

It's a funny parody of BL fanfic tropes and how ridiculous many of the usual elements are. For example, the "not able to get out of bed for three days and three nights" is really kinda cruel, isn't it?

The poor main character, Zijun, was written as a cold, calm, facial paralysis type of character in a typical Xianxia novel. Sadly for him, a fujoshi fanfic writer created a story where he is an extreme tsundere and beastly seme who is having an affair with... more>> his sect brother who is a seductive uke.

Then the fanfic version of Zijun transmigrated into the original novel. How will he deal with a world where his (BL fanfic) logic us considered crazy? How will his sect brothers deal with the delusional Zijun who thinks men can give birth? <<less

This is somewhat different from the usual transmigration stories out there, where ZZ (the fanfic version) transmigrates into the "real" world and starts to reexamine what he considers to be true about his life. The entire novel is pretty lighthearted, with some funny scenes here and there. Although everything serves to drive ZZ and YX's relationship, there is adventure and mystery to keep me interested in the story. Sure ZZ is OP but that's not the point. It's how ZZ and YX act given their strength or given the situation... more>> that makes this story a good one.

Why I loved it:


What is true love? Is it forcing him to be intimate even when he says no? Is it being overbearingly possessive all the time? Is it manipulating him to love you the way you want him to?

I find a lot of BL novels involve possessive MLs that are borderline psychos when it comes to expressing their "love" for MC. While it's not entirely off-putting, it's certainly a breath of fresh air to have an ML that is different. ZZ, being from the fanfic, is written to be exactly that way, but when he transmigrates into the "real" world, he starts to think a lot about the motivations behind his actions in the world he left behind. As it is, his love for YX is so much stronger than his desire to possess YX. We get a glimpse of how much he really cares for YX through his actions and how he considers the situation from YX's POV. He's constantly turned on, and it's unbearable, but he refuses to give in because he wants YX to feel the same way before they get intimate. Both YX and ZZ never invade the other person' sea of consciousness to try and find out what the other person is unwilling to talk about because they trust and respect each other.

I was laughing non-stop for the first 15 chapters. It's a great parody of the typical BL novel where the plot requires the shou/uke/bottom to be hilariously weak when they were supposed to be powerful, smart, and strong according to the premise of the novel.

However, after reading 35 chapters in, the novelty of the concept quickly wore off. The actual story and plot becomes much more akin to a traditional BL novel and quickly loses its luster. I would recommend everyone to read it, but not worth a heavy investment.

Finallyyyy I completed the novel, with MTL of course, cuz no translator is picking it up and I can't wait till anyone does, well as u can see from other reviews it is not just some brainless novel with no storyline and is not as casual as the title suggests, it has a proper plotline, the events are connected to each other and with MTL though I may have misinterpreted some phrases but I got what the story is.

The relationship between the MC and ML is really wonderful, the trust... more>> they have for each other ahh I loved it!


Mpreg is really there, like in the end. They have 2 twin buns. (ʃƪ^3^)


Now novel was wrapped up nicely and I don't think any other plots were left, I just wanted to know who were MC's parents tho, cuz due to the fanfic distortion thing he had a pretty OP bloodline, don't know if it is true, but...


He definitely used his bloodline in battles with demon and ghost king.

The idea is interesting, and eventho I only read at c4, the flow of the story and plot is promising.

The ML is reasonable and the MC chara is sticking to the plot. Definitely bookmarked!

Very funny!! The idea itself is very original, and execution is great after you get past how weird the first couple chapters are. It seems like a story that will get better and better. It's comedy, but at the same time, it seems likely to have a riveting plot as well.

Characters seem great. Our MC is strong and has trouble adapting, but he's pretty smart (when he's not around ML) and very caring. ML is clever and hilarious, but he works harder than almost everyone else. Seriously, ML is so... more>> funny. Also, seme protagonist!!! Super duper seme!!!

Thanks for the hard work of the translator!! Please keep it up... months-long breaks are so painful though ahh :' (

Also; imagine if an OG character went into the fanfic instead; that would DEFINITELY be way worse. I do feel kinda bad for OG Zhang Ziyun though, but I hope he enjoys wherever he ends up (or author will someone asset that they're the same person? idk) . Fanfic Yi Yichen does not seem lovable at all... <<less

Probably 4.0-4.5 stars

Thought that the story has no depth from the comedic undertone of the first few chapters but in reality their past stories are little complicated. Still, lack of common sense does exist

I will read until here first because the story is a little boring. Actually I don't like ML a bit because he's from the fanfic world, which means he only likes MCs who are not there at the original level. Even though ML feels he likes MC in the fanfic world because of the writer's 'coercion'. And sorry because I like pure relationships so I don't like ML because he's already papapa with MC fanfic. I don't like it because it seems as if the MC in the original book... more>> is like a replacement Even though it's not like that, it still makes me uncomfortable. <<less

Only reading the first 8 chapters I must say it's funny XD I like how they point out how s*upid are some cliches in the yaoi world - the yaoi logic (that I still like).

I definitely want to read it to the end.

Very meta and very funny.

As a casual yaoi enjoyer, I think usually yaoi stories I see here are pretty good, but pretty repetitive and overrated, but I think both these guys are very funny, and the story is good for non-yaoi reasons. Definitely more of a fanfic/cliche novel parody, and I love it

The novel is really funny! The ML most of time just be like "??????" when the MC talked after the transmigration 😂😂

Really like how they make a parody of the common fanfic trope that sometimes can be downright ridiculous (but we all love them, we're all sinners here)

That was honestly hilarious, I laughed my soul off. The whole concept, their life, their conversations

It's heartbreaking that I don't see any more chapters even though this is such a masterpiece...

Humor aside, I think that's how yaoi and romance in general should be. In it's core the characters are so well developed and they take eacn other for who they are.

Their companionship and relationship is honestly the most well writen romance I saw out there in other yaoi/hereto novels, even though it's not that well developed 'cause it's been only... more>> 16 chapters

Yet it was the best reading experience. Lastly, I want to thank the translarors who did the first 16 chapters so I could actually read this, thank you! <<less

The story itself is fresh and interesting. The beginning of the story got me cackling and the middle parts are very touching. They seem to still hold onto loyal brotherhood relationship until later on.

Regarding Likalily's review upstairs,

... more>>

both characters obviously loves each other purely. ZSZJ clearly likes YXC the way he is supposed to be, or when he's not influenced by the fanfic settings. And YSC hasn't developed much romance feelings towards ZSZJ but it sincere towards him.


The background story for both MC are deep. However, my expectation when I read gong protagonists is that I want to read the gong's struggles, his thought process and feelings. I want to see his problems and mysteries resolved. But author seems to care more for the shou, even the gong's origins and how he came to transmigrate is still a bit confusing 🥲 <<less
