    Yes, eh imagine just being like bitch gotchu u thought u thot. But yes with all seriousness the thought seems exciting and scary but that's the thrill of it. It's an all or nothing game.

    Maybe if you removed the option to nom skullie, people might choose to do something other than nomming.

    Will depend on the System & affiliated missions. Don't ask me to bring together or break up people! Just let me save or conquer the world, that's what I'm comfortable with.

    QT is a never ending life in which you will have no permanent friends or family; your life are constantly at risk, with no place to call home. Heck, you can't even keep your own identity. 10/10 not recommended.

    I think it would be interesting, however, it would largely depend on the conditions attached to it. :aww: Like would it make my puppies live for as long as myself? I would absolutely agree! :blobbunny:

    Are we guys reading the same type of quick transmigration novels? :blobsleepless: Because no, HECK NO.
    1. Something is watching (and commenting on) your every move and even have complete access to your thoughts
    2. You are forced to do "missions" in a certain way, which you can't even refuse
    3. Every part of your "new life" is related to your "mission" and you can't even ask for a time out or a quick vacation leave in the middle of it
    4. You won't have any friends, family, or a support group unrelated to your "mission"
    5. Your "reward points" will all have to be spent on/for your "missions"
    6. You'll be stuck in the system for a long, long time before you can get out
    7. You may be hurt, tortured, abused, or even downright face death as part of your "missions"
    8. You have no idea who can help you if the system decides to screw you over
    No wish of mine will be worth this kind of slave contract. Nope. :blob_coughblood:

    Nah... I like living my own life without a system and without going from one place to another all the time.

    QT looks horrible.

    They... do?

    I do recall systems asking for consent to bind to their hosts. And especially of the host is on the verge of death, rather than "agree or we obliterate you", it's more like "this is an offer that may let you live, and if you refuse it we'll let you go back to original state- i.e. death" (because why should they help someone live when they're not gonna help them).

    Sounds completely fair~

    And I'd say yes~! If I was already about to die, I mean... :sweating_profusely:

    I already avoid "System" novels like the plague so I didn't even realize these "Quick Transmigrations" was a thing, sounds like a complete nightmare scenario though since being transmigrated against your will even once is bad enough, let alone repeatedly.

    It often bothers me how compliant the main character is. You could probably hand wave that way by saying "of course, because the system knew they would be, that's why they were chosen".

    My inner grumpster really wants them to be more assertive, even spiteful, about being forced to do this stuff. I get that many people have this weird kink where they get off (on some level) seeing people be forced to do embarrassing or painful things, but I'd love it if they found ways to get back at who/whatever is enslaving them. It's why I love some of the stories where the system doesn't have enough gym badges to train them!

    Another point is the whole complete invasion of mind and body by some sentient entity that can and will enforce it's own whims on the MC. IDK it just offends my sensibilities when I don't see such a horrendous display of domination treated like exactly what it is. Pure, absolute violation. Thankfully a lot of it really isn't that serious so you can just ignore it.

    Heck, I think I just want my protagonists to have a spine because I hate push-overs. There wouldn't be much of a story if the MC chose to die rather than obey, though.

    No no no no. I would immediately say no. I'd rather be dead. I'm very lazy.
