    So this is what I'd be looking for in the story:
    1. MC should do nothing(as in, he's just chill. there's no need for the MC to be OP)
    2. Has to be in a cultivation setting
    3. If he has a system/cheats, then even better. But meh, it's not something I search for anyway.
    4. Maybe an isekai? Idk, but idc if it's not.
    5. NO BL (I'm definitely not reading that stuff, even if it's the #1)

    So I just realized that people post here to learn what 'salted fish' means, when this thread is intended to get me some good ol' lazy ass story. I'm cool with it. (really).

    That's, umm, thought-provoking, yes. Salted fish with wings? Can it still be called 'salted fish' if it has wings? (but hey, if a salted fish is chill with them wings, why not?)

    My only suggestion would be to search tags "lazy" and the genre Slice of Life. I remember reading a short story of a Demon of Sloth, it has 16 chapters? It's called The Lazy King.

    Let Me Game in Peace:
    Let me game in peace reminds me of Shadow Hack٫ how he had a mini hunting app and he got his power transfered from his game clones to his real self. There are much difference but it gaves the same fundamental vibe. Let me game in peace mc is a loner most of the time only concentrating on his hunting game in his phone replying just only when necessary ignoring even the sexy girls approaching him. In a society ruled by power and connections where your cultivation base٫skills and pets decide your treatment everyone thinks he is a waste. Wasting all his genius talent on gaming while in actual he is getting stronger and shrewder by days. I love his non caring attitude doing whatever the hell he like but still begin smart enough to know what he shouldn't do to keep his secrets.
    A well made blend of wuxia - dungeon zones - pocket hunting dimesnion - battle pets themes.
