    Hello! Looking for anything that relates to Mc dying in the end or the normal angst if not some nice QT fics that I haven’t dragged out to read yet. (Regular transmigration works too ^.^ I’m just open to any good novels)

    But what I’m really looking for is something similar to the first arc of ‘Let Me Shoulder This Blame!’ where mc betrays ML for the greater good and becomes a marshal in the enemy’s faction. ML finds out the truth and tries to stop mc from destroying himself any further and save him, but fails to do so and can only watch him die. Or not die but like you get my drift (or not lmao)

    Or just a fic where mc isn’t a weak shou and can fight his own battles.

    I’ll be replying to anyone the next day >.< sorry but it’s near midnight Thank you and sorry to anyone who had to read my long post :blobconfounded:

    hmmm upon reflection I'm not sure how much this actual matches what you're looking for but my first thought was No Money to Divorce! Happy ending, but I cried like a baby and leans into military stuff since the gong is involved in it. Also, it's an officially translation by Chaleuria, so buying the translated chapters is a way to support future official licensing :D

    For angsty QTs, I absolutely recommend Strategy to Capture That Scum Gong. I read it in the middle of the night and there were so many tears but I couldn't stop. It's a unique storytelling style where the author tells it like the MC is actually the poor abused shou, but in reality he's always pretending. However, definitely mind the trigger warnings--there's a lot of self-harm, suicide, and dubcon/noncon. I read this as the same time as Perfect Destiny, which I saw you liked, and enjoyed both a lot. I haven't read it, but I think the sequel(? or related series) The Scum Shou's Survival Guide is probably similar especially after checking the trigger warnings.

    I also recommend the first two arcs of Heroic Death System, which I think are absolutely phenomenal. I definitely cried over the second arc. I personally don't find any other arcs very sad but I know lots of people consider HDS an angsty novel!

    I’ve never read heavy as a mount tai, I guess this is a good time to read it thank you!

    no money to divorce sounds funny and really interesting!

    I remember reading Strat to capture that scum gong, got second hand embarrassment through an arc. Once I get enough strength to finish reading im sure I’ll enjoy it >w< I haven’t seen the sequel next but I’m sure I’ll enjoy that too!

    Heroic Death System, such a good QT novel!

    thank you so much !

    I’ve already seen those too, loved it!
    And I’m sure I’ll enjoy heavy as a mountain tai, thank you!
