    Hi! I'm looking for a BL novel where the passive is not a white lotus or a weakling with a girlish appearance.
    I would like that he can protect himself and don't depend on the Seme or any other characters.
    If there is action, fantasy, etc better.
    I have already read Grandmaster of demonic cultivation.
    One last thing, the novel can be original too.
    Than you very much!

    Some of my favorite Xianxia/Wuxia/Xuanhuans with badass MCs:
    • The Villain Has Something To Say
    • Thousand Autumns
    • The Husky and His White Cat Shizun
    • Record of The Missing Sect Leader
    • (The other MXTXs ofc)

    I really like "I rely on poverty to sweep through survival games" and "I wasn't Born Lucky" - the mc is very strong and the ml is basically support.
    There is also "Card Room" and "non-human seeking re-employment" where the ml and mc are both very strong.
    "Supernatural Movie Actor App", and "Surprise - the supposed talent show was actually-?!" both have strong mc, but they also rely a lot on their ml and vice versa. Their relationship is very good (not a lot of drama).
    Lastly, "I got this cannon fodder's back" where the mc supports the ml.
    (you can tell I really like unlimited flow and QT haha)
    If you want some dog blood drama you can cry over, there are QT where the mc transmigrates to abuse the scum ml (no emotional reliance but lots of drama, I recommend it if you wanna have a good cry without angering yourself to death with the mc's self abuse):
    "Perfect Destiny", "Strategy to Capture that Scum Gong"
    Lastly - this is not unlimited flow or QT
    "Ghosts Know What I Experienced" - strong ML and MC, basically my favorite
    "Special Case Files of Re-birth" is also pretty good - its got a strongish mc and strong ml but their relationship is still at the unconfirmed stage. This is more a series of case files so sorta like QT but not really.

    I strongly recommend "Fire Burning" (https://www.scribblehub.com/series/160447/fire-burning/), a short, completed novel with a transgender MC.

    It's a very action-packed novel about mages in a battle academy and a commoner who's forced to take the place of a noble and win him prestige there.

    The MC is our underdog but secretly OP shounen protagonist, and the love interest is... A surprise~! (But a capable and independent fighter.)

    Those Years When We Killed the White Lotus
    There Will Always Be Protagonists With Delusions of Starting a Harem
    Heroic Death System
    The Trial Game of Life
    Master Grim Reaper Makes His Debut in Center Position

    For modern:
    Transmigrated into the Film Emperor’s Death-Seeking Fiance
    My Husband is Suffering from a Terminal Illness

    They all feature mature calm MC with some being mostly cold, or some just friendly on the outside but can be calculating if provoked. For QT ones, there might be times they act like white lotus depending on their role in the arc but I can't remember those parts much.
