Anyone please drop spoiler hereee...
I’m really curious about this story. Don’t get me wrong I think the ML is worse than actual garbage but doesn’t mean I’m not interested in reading it. I read somewhere that the ML misunderstood something about the FL, that’s all I could find pertaining to spoilers. If someone has the raws please message me
Damn, reading the description piqued my interest and was expecting a good revenge and story but I come here and find out it all goes to shit but...lol I'm still interested to know what happens so...Spoilers pls!
LOL this comment tho under one of the chapters that's still up HAHAHA.
I yelled, I tell you.. yelled.
Sorry but I just find it rather odd that readers haven't guessed why we continue to get stories like this: when, well, y'know, complaining about how a victim is supposed to act and expecting women to have no flaws while a man can be as flawed as all get out to still be considered strong, are precisely the real world experiences that authors draw from to write their stories. In other words the authors can write a male character who is basically evil to the bone but then give him a tragic backstory and immediately most people will sympathize with him. However write any kind of female character and if, on her path to redemption, that character is shown to have one single flaw readers will attack her (unfortunately I will never be a fan of characters like Su Luxia precisely because they have no apparent flaws and thus just seem rather mediocre and flat because of their weak characterization) even if that 'flaw' is based on a contradiction. Given that, it's not only clear why the authors believe that male characters are the most important part to any development of a story but also why they feel they don't need to care about their female characters so much. So I'm not surprised that we're getting these kinds of stories at all personally.
Nope. Most revenge stories are MORE like that than NOT. The abuse the FL suffered is equated to a 'mere' misunderstanding and she's pressured to forgive her abuser because the abuser had 'reasons' and/or 'tragic past'. A refreshing take would be a revenge story where the FL takes revenge on the people who hurt her DESPITE the fact people are pressuring her to forgive the trash ML OR how she feels about him.
Besides there is one like what you describe and it proves my point that, no, it does not make them the same as MLs who treat innocent people like sh!t without observable evidence. Naughty Reborn Cute Wife. She hallucinated that it was the ML who was the one who cut out her heart. But she had no reason to believe she was given a hallucinatory drug. But, again, if she had believed any of the reasons she had been given and it HAD turned out he was the one who killed her, readers would have condemned HER not the ML, because obviously 'reasons' aren't good enough for readers when it comes to FLs showing mercy, even though they are good enough for them to defend the ML's actions. That's exactly how it's so often been portrayed in-story too given how fiction is only an exaggerated reflection of reality.
