    Yo I'm ACTS1966 but yous can call me Xavior Actman.
    I study the science and philosophy of dum dum activity.
    As I hail from the world renowned village of dum dum, I take great lengths to satisfy my pride for my dum dum heritage and I would like all of you to accept the dum dum within me if that's ok.
    Well cyas soon, probably.

    Yes the dum dum is a type of energy gathered from reading particular dum novels that are just so dum that the novel can't contain the energy. If the energy is truly harnessed, a person can become a true dum dum immortal. That is what I aim for, to become an elusive dum dum immortal.

    Thanks! I read... a diverse range. Usually it's the characters and writing style, something that I can only filter through trial and error that gets me interested. I also love world building, so fantasy/sci fi are lots of fun. It would be more accurate to say the genres I dislike; harem, isekai and comedy. I do not mind a bit of humour, but I prefer bleaker, more serious tones, and any story that props itself up on comedy is just... exhausting.

    As is the case for probably a fair few people here, I came to light novels from manga, from anime. So I'm familiar with a lot of tropes, despite being a novice at the medium. I am, however, a prolific reader of western novels.

    It really depends, once again. I haven't read the two titles you've listed, but magic can vary greatly from book to book. When it comes to CN webnovels, I don't know where to start. They're so long! And the descriptions, more often than not, appear incomprehensible out of context. I have no idea where to start, as there's so many.

    For world-building, I enjoyed 12 Kingdoms (technically isekai, but has non of those negative tropes) and Seirei no Moribito (which only has one volume officially translated into English - the anime version is also magnificent).I'm currently reading Rakuin no Monshou and it's holding up too. These stories, however, appear to be in the minority. Magic is present, but there's no RPG-type level-upping, which I find removes a lot of potential depth. I like magic; a lot can be done with it, when implemented effectively. Incidentally, they're all JP-novels, but that's purely coincidence. I have yet to branch out.


    I also like stories where the characters suffer, are not OP, but still have a purpose/will, and where there is a chance of death and tragedy. Action, war, sci fi, such like. Unfortunately, these genres seem infested with harems. To clarify, it's not harems themselves that are irritating - it's that many stories appear to exist purely for the purpose of adding to them. And the subsequent objectification of these 1 dimensional girls that really don't need to be there. After so many negative experiences, I avoid them on principle. I could also just be looking in the wrong places.
