    Very funny, like wtf.
    Mc has domineering president persona and easy to be bullied young girl persona.
    Fl... Is a black belly rabbit lol.
    Gu Jinghe lifted Ji Xingyan’s chin and moved her lips together. When she was about to touch Ji Xingyan’s lips, she yelled a system in her mind.



    “Quick, it’s now.”



    At the same time, Ji Xingyan also said to the system, “Dazzle her.”



    The lips of the two of them moved away as soon as they fell on the bed, their eyes closed tightly, and they fell asleep.



    Gu Jinghe was covered with a thin blanket, while Ji Xingyan was lying on the bed with no cover.



    Fortunately, the weather hasn’t been cold recently, and the air-conditioning has been turned on in the room. Even if I sleep this way, I won’t catch a cold.



    However, the systems on both sides were shocked. What happened? Didn’t it choose another person as the object? Why did the host faint?



    System × System: No, is there a bug in this function?



    Yes, the newly launched function will have a little problem more or less. It has never been used before, so I don’t know where the problem will be.



    This is very normal, and it often happened before.



    Unexpectedly, this function is a non-discriminatory attack. Fortunately, the opponent fainted with the host. Otherwise, if it only attacks the host, it will really cause a big problem.



    The two systems breathed a sigh of relief and thought at the same time: I don’t know if the host gets up tomorrow, will they blame themselves, or find an excuse to perfuse her.



    System × System: I am really a little clever ghost.



    Simply put all the mistakes on the R&D staff. No, you must complain about it. The top-level configuration plus version has such a big bug. Isn’t this a pit system?



    So that night, the Research Center of the Book Wear Department received two reports at the same time, from two different systems, and the content of the reports was exactly the same.



    The customer service looked at it, ah, the 100% praised function actually received two reports with exactly the same content. This must be a conspiracy by the Rebirth Department next door.



    She snapped a few words: Come to me, please don’t use false information to discredit us!

    Hope you like novels, cause I can't really think of any dark Yuri manga.

    So for that juicy dark stuff, I always recommend the series, Fallen Gods by S.D. Simper as there is so much fucked up shit in that series. Like we got an FL who is cutting people up FOR FUN, MC straight up turning into a manipulative monster for the FL, and just lots of gore and violence. Like I came out of book 4 questioning the existence of my life.

    Then for a more introspective and modern dark Yuri, I recommend Sins of Mercy by Hildred Billings. It's a short 7-8 novella book set that focuses on themes like depression, suicide, gaslighting, etc. Although it kinda delves into full-on smut later on (which was actually pretty good). This one is more of a motivational series and has a happy ending, so it's way less depressing than Fallen Gods.

    There's also The One Who Eats Monsters by Casey Matthews for a more supernatural, dark yuri. Some themes include rape, trauma, etc.

    As for vampires, here are a couple (legit just copy and pasted this from my list so please forgive me for any typos):
    • Fang U by Mia Archer (college, vampires, good pining, powerful witch, payback is a bitch)
    • When Dusk Comes by J.J Arias (vampire queen x human, series)
    • Good Enough to Eat by Jae and Alison Grey (alcoholic vampire x genie, comedy)
    And then there was that one manga vampire one I read called: Seifuku no Vampiress Lord. I think this one was axed tho.

    Anyhow, most of the novels above can be read on kindle unlimited (get a 1 month free trial) or probably pirate off of epub or smth. Hope this helps~

    i read this too, i pretty much read most of em, but it's still nice to reread others like this. thank you for reminding me of this messed up manga.

    there's something like that? what novel is it??? it makes me curious why that mc would wanna die in front of fl every time, is it that she got stuck in tragedy genre QT? is fl same fl for all worlds or is it different fl?

    thanks for the yandere/paranoid tip!

    it sounds like it doesn't have a definite ending? or did the ending just go to the sequel? im good with incomplete stuff coz there may be an complete ending once it finish, but not really into complete stuff that doesn't have s definite ending, my brain would kersplode wanting to kno what happen. :giggle::confused::eek:

    The ending seems to be in the Sequel, but not sure if the Original Author might want to write another story that takes place in the Same Universe.

    Phew, so I got distracted by Stardew Valley but I also went through and read a bunch of very interesting stories since the last time I posted. Dunno why, but I had a big craving for the apocalypse genre so I went through and read a few of those and then moved onto some interstellar ones and then finally ended with my go to fave genre, quick transmigration. These are the ones that I've read so far that honestly were really good.

    The first one is The System Sent Me an Object [End Times] and it really blew my mind when I read it. It starts off standard enough, but by the end, there's a huge plot twist that really just made me go :blobscream: the whole last arc. Basically the MC gets assigned a system that is supposed to help her survive the zombie apocalypse better, and it also provides mission tasks to help her level up. Her task is to confess to a stranger she just met and follow and help her. Of course, that's just what you think at first, but the real face of the world is unraveled as we go along. The MC is extremely intelligent and it's interesting just to see what her conclusions are based on what's going on. I won't say what the plot twist is, but it definitely is not in the same genre. Besides that, the romance is incredibly sweet, especially once you reach near the end when certain things are revealed about why her main mission is the way it is. I literally finished the story like 2 weeks ago and I'm still thinking about it cause it really made an impact for me. 10/10 storytelling and romance for sure.

    The next one I read is Raising a Zombie in the Last Days and this one was a lot less complicated and a lot more sweet. It's mostly sweet text with some plot and a little angst sprinkled in. The MC is a healing system who is able to resist the zombie virus, but her healing ability isn't a good offensive power so she's been betrayed and left behind countless times since the end times began. That's when she meets the zombie king, our female lead. The start was a little rocky, but they end up living together and it's mostly smooth sailing from there. They accumulate a pet cat, pet fish, pet carnivorous plant, pet birds, etc with the power of the zombie king and it's mostly slice of life. There's a few moments of angst involving their past, but it ends happily. I'd rate this higher but it felt too short and not enough plot to satisfy my preferences so I'll leave it at a 9/10.

    The last end times novel I read that was really good was Doomsday Repaying Duck. It's exactly as it sounds as the MC is literally a duck who mutated in the end times, but there's even more set up cause she is also a reborn duck who just wants to protect her master. It's a double rebirth with both duck and her master being reborn, with the addition of the duck having lived longer than her master the last time around. Honestly angsty as fuck since their previous life was extremely hard and there's enough flashbacks that made me tear up multiple times cause damn they were really dedicated to each other. You know the saying of "the dog is a man's best friend?" Well, the duck is the woman's best friend in this case. Also yes, the CP is the duck x the master cause the duck ate some magical grass and gained a human body so yeah. Honestly it felt a little sus, but their devotion to each other felt too sweet to really feel opposed to it. The novel itself was a story of redemption(?) cause they made up for everything that happened in their last life. Seriously, the last life felt like reading an abuse text every time there was a flashback, but seeing it side by side with the current story felt more satisfying. I'd give it a 10/10 if the pet x master thing didn't make me feel sus, but alas I have my morals so 9.5/10 instead.

    I only read one interstellar novel that I liked, and boy was it interesting. It's called The Apex Pet Led by Big Cats (I'm really not sure that this is the correct translation), and it's an interstellar setting with animal shifters. The MC is a fish (magical human transforming fish) and the female lead is a cat (a shifter of course). The MC actually transmigrated into the interstellar world from the regular(?) modern world and she has a special power in the interstellar world. So the setting of the interstellar world is that every shifter has riot energy in their body that will make them go crazy and kill everyone, and mixed blood shifters will fall to it earlier than pure blood shifters. This caused intense racism and a pure blood aristocracy to rule the interstellar worlds. The female lead is a mixed blood cat shifter who also rose through the ranks and became the highest rank shifter that could exist and directly became the king of the interstellar world. She was calculated by the pure bloods and was injured intensely before being rescued by the MC who has special demonic power that can cleanse riot energy. The beginning arcs were all centered around the MC raising the FL as a cat and becoming a food anchor (live streamer). Then it moves onto the FL leading a revolutionary army against the current pure blood aristocracy and exposing the dark secret of pure bloods aka genetic diseases caused by inbreeding. Of course, there's certain secrets that are revealed in the end that tie the MC and FL together beyond the surface and they actually knew each other from a long time ago but both of them forgot. There's a reason why the MC loves cats despite being a fish, and why she became a chef. All in all, everything was damn sweet and hilarious as heck cause it's literally a love story between a fish and a cat. 10/10 for sure.

    Now onto the QT novels I read. The first one was In The Harem Text, Long Aotian [QT] that was written by the same author of Being a Scumbag in Dog-Blood Texts. Basically the same premise except a new MC who is actually the apprentice of the MC of the Scumbag Texts. Honestly this novel was not as interesting as the Scumbag in Dog-Blood Texts since it was taken a little bit more seriously than in the other one. The only reason I enjoyed reading the other novel so much was because the heroine kept doing stupid shit that kept making the situations worse in a hilarious way, and this novel didn't have quite the same taste. The first few worlds were very serious seduction/manipulation of the targets and being in control of the situation. It was still interesting in a different way, but not as entertaining. I'd have to give it an 8/10 since I read it knowing what the author was capable of, but it fell short of my expectations.

    The next one I read is Don't Hang Up This Time If You Have the Ability GL [QT]. This is the start of a series of QTs I read with somewhat similar themes. The similar theme being the MC/FL have extraordinary backgrounds that aren't revealed until much later as a plot twist. I won't say what type of background, but they're all interesting. This story starts off with the MC committing suicide by jumping off a building, but unfortunately she ended up killing the Son of Destiny of that world at the same time since she landed on her. The Heavenly system bound her after death and made her go through different worlds to collect the fragments of the heroine's soul. The method of extracting the fragments? She had to stimulate the heroine's soul to get her to love her before giving a shock by dying in front of her. This happens in multiple worlds before we slowly figure out that the MC isn't normal and there's a lot more about her than meets the eye. It doesn't get revealed until the last world, but by then everything is revealed as we get the full story of what the MC was doing in that world and the true identities of both the MC and FL. Despite how almost every world was a BE, it was still interesting to stick to until the end. I think the foreshadowing could've been a little better, and some worlds felt too short, but the story was mostly good. 9/10 for this story too.

    After that, I read Golden Crow's Self-Cultivation. This story is probably my favorite of the QT novels I've read from this list. The MC's identity is straightforward and the reason why she's going through different worlds is also straightforward. The only "plot twist/reveal" that happens is in relation to the romance and in some parts of the reasoning behind why Bai Ze helped her resurrect. Basically the MC is Chi Yao, a golden crow from the "Hou Yi shoots down the sun" legend where he shot down 9 of the 10 suns that turned into golden crows with three legs when they were shot down. Chi Yao is one of the crows that got killed. Bai Ze is a renowned mythical beast who knows all things etc etc, and she is helping Chi Yao resurrect by sending her into different worlds to take over the incarnations of herself in those worlds and fulfilling their wishes to regain her strength. There's no tricky business with systems or erasing memories or anything like that, and Chi Yao enters these worlds like the full level boss going back to the novice village. It's genuinely really fun seeing how Chi Yao deals with things cause she's smart and knows how to do things to her full advantage. The romance doesn't really get going until the 4th world, but there's plenty of interesting plot lines in each world to tide you over until then. The romance is a bit special though with how Bai Ze treats it, but you know what? The end justifies the means in this case since Bai Ze didn't cross any lines and Chi Yao really wouldn't have considered her if she didn't treat romance like a chess game. Either way, this entire novel was just full of interesting plot lines and definitely worth a read. 11/10 honestly.

    The next one is The Miserable Life System of Quick Transmigration. It's exactly as it sounds. The MC has to go through a number of worlds where the original host had a miserable life and her task is to survive and live happily. This story is a little similar to Don't Hang Up This Time except the worlds don't end in BE. The MC is able to reverse her situation and fall in love and live until the end of her life pretty much every time. Of course, the difference with this story is how there's additional "reward space" chapters where the MC receives the memory of her original life. It's not too much of a spoiler but the MC was originally a grass in the Nine Heavens Realm where the gods live. Yeah, that's right, she's literally grass. The backstory of why she's going through these worlds was sad as fuck though and honestly the reward space chapters were very interesting. The only thing I have a complaint about for this story is how short it was cause it could definitely be thicker. Still, I'd give it a 10/10 for overall plot, happiness index, and satisfactory ending.

    The last one I read is Learning in Quick Transmigration Makes Me Happy. This one was... heh. Every single world besides the last one was basically BE, yet I still enjoyed it a lot. The MC is scarily smart, and it was interesting to see how she solves the task missions with how difficult all the worlds are. It's like reading multiple mystery stories to see how things unveil and how the MC deals with them. The romances are also all very interesting with some differences in all of them. A little abusive since the MC never lives past 30 in any of the worlds and she almost always ends up falling in love with the task object. After the 9th world, the "reveal" happens where we find out who she really is and why she needed to go through the different worlds and why the system acted like a little bastard the whole time. The only happy ending happens in the 10th and final world, and while it was satisfying, I wish it was a little longer with an epilogue detailing their happy married life after the story ends. Instead of that, we got a few extras that was a prologue to the beginning of the story instead. Honestly, this story tossed my heart back and forth with the fact that I knew it was going to have a bad ending in worlds 1-9 and yet I still hoped there would be a happy ending every time. I think that just attests to how well the author wrote the settings so that you can easily sympathize with the heroines of each world. 10/10 especially since I low-key fell in love with the MC too.

    I'll make threads for stuff now since I finally got a new laptop so look forward to seeing those in the yuri tag soon.

    ooooh nice recs, def will read them when I have the chance! blobmelt_thumbs

    Ngl, this one sounds a lot like the GL version of Heroic Death System (Which is a BL quick transmigration where MC has to die as heroically and basically as tragically as possible. The ML gets like super scarred from that and legit becomes really possessive in every world.)

    Well... it might be if the reveal didn't make the MC's background intense as hell. Unless the Heroic Death System has the identity of the main characters turn out to be much grander than a normal human, then it might not be as similar as you think. As a small spoiler, the Heavenly system even thinks the MC's background is not simple and he's literally the god of the world the MC and FL are supposedly from.

    Shameless plug for the new yuri novel I'm translating :aww:

    The novel's name is After Being Bent by Reader.

    Link:
    hostednovel(dot)com/18915/novel/after-being-bent-by-reader/abbr-chapter-1

    *replace the (dot) with an actual dot.


    Author's Introduction:
    Xu Chuanchuan is a yuri novel writer who firmly believes herself to be as straight as a steel pipe. At one time, she even swore to herself, "I will never date my readers!"

    Afterward, Xu Chuanchuan inadvertently slept with the tycoon reader ranked first on her donation list.

    Later on, Xu Chuanchuan found out that said tycoon turned out to be her boss, and she regretted everything she had done."

    Reader: "The Lord has stopped regularly updating recently. Is she busy?"

    Xu Chuanchuan dared not reply truthfully to this question. While enduring her aching back, she responded: "I feel unwell, so I'll be skipping releases for a day. /(ㄒoㄒ)/~~"

    Xu Chuanchuan had been living a sweet and fulfilling life ever since she had secretly acquired a partner. However, it seems her body was becoming worse by the day...

    Okay, I finished reading another sort of apocalypse novel. It's called I Went Into the Escape Game After the Doomsday Rebirth. It's basically what it sounds like, the MC was originally the only survivor of her world that went through the standard zombie apocalypse with powers and everything, and then she went crazy and scorched half the face of the Earth. Some "gods" found her and promised to reverse time to 3 days before the tragedy that killed everyone except her in exchange for her participation in "escape games." These escape games are basically placing a group of people in a horror scenario where they need to figure out clues to escape will also trying their best to survive the horrors that happen in that setting. She then meets Tang Chu, someone else who survived from her world, and they end up going through these escape games mostly together.

    It was really interesting reading what's essentially a series of horror scenarios with a very powerful main character and her very capable love interest. It's not actually easy for them to escape, but the knowledge that the protagonists of the story are very capable makes the anxiety of not knowing whether they'll survive or not much less. I only have 2 complaints about the story. 1. The story was way too short and didn't feel all the way fleshed out. 2. The ending felt abrupt and also too short. I'd have to give it an 8.5/10 for that but it's a good story up until you get to the end and feel that things ended way too suddenly.
