    Finished reading Subject is Always Decent GL and it's pretty good. A bit basic in terms of how things progress, but I don't really have any complaints about anything that happened. It's a quick transmigration novel where there's a Time and Space Administration with taskers that are assigned systems. The MC is the newest director and the FL is the inspection department's director, someone with almost equal power to the director. The first two worlds were where things were really interesting since the FL was trying to find problems with the MC and the MC was still holding back her true face when dealing with the task. The MC looks harmless on the surface but is actually black bellied and the FL looks serious but she's actually a tsundere. The whole appeal of the story is their dynamic with each other and it delivered for the most part. After they got together, this wasn't quite as apparent since the plot didn't have many areas to really showcase their personalities since they solve things quite easily. I'd have to give it a 9/10 since I don't have anything that I can criticize about it, I just thought it was a bit boring compared to other stories I've read.

    Sigh
    宿主不会谈恋爱
    The host won't fall in love
    This one.. Qt.
    Well written
    Except... Why the fuggg after they get back mc didn't stop fl and she let her go abroand and fl got killed?
    Author set up be for some sophistry, and at the end mc killed herself!!! hhh.
    So before is mc too cowardly to confess to fl, fl go abroad and get killed, after world hopping mc confess, fl go abroad and get killed? I don't even... Hhh whatever.
    Basically no different from before, except mc know love and then fl left her just like before.
    Fugging sad. The last chapter is epilogue extra where mc meets fl.
    Just... Pretend no more chapter after xianxia world. (Yes, its that bad ending screw sophistication)
    From now on I'll check the ending first after dirst 3 chapter hh

    Idk what you mean by "dark" but there's one QT novel I was reading that I didn't finish because I felt it was too abusive. By abusive, I mean all of the plotlines were BE and the MC was manipulating the FL to get her to both love and hate her. I only read the first two worlds but they're really long and the worst part is that it's actually well-written, just with very abusive plots. No clue if it's HE or what by the end, but what I do know is that I stopped reading cause it made me uncomfortable with how far the MC is willing to go to get the FL to hate her. It's more of being purposefully deceptive to make the FL think she's a piece of shit but is actually trying to help her by the end. The problem is, she's still a scumbag since she needs the FL to get her hatred and love value to 100 at the same time and will let the FL feel like shit for the majority of the world that lasts like, 100 chapters each. It's called I, a Scumbag, Just Tease but Don't Marry.

    Finished reading a few transmigration novels. The first one is Be the Golden Finger for the Queen's Love Rival. It's an entertainment circle transmigration novel where the MC has to help the heroine reach the pinnacle of life and win back the international acting trophy. The twist is that the first day she transmigrates, she had a one night stand with said heroine... Besides that though, the plot is only there to supplement the romance where it's mutual attack with a lot of flirting and other stuff *wink wink* before they finally get together. The MC herself is pretty much the silly white lotus type of character and it's a real white lotus, not a fake one. The plot is pretty basic and it's similar to other entertainment circle settings, but the highlight of this book is how sultry the writing is. Like, reading it gives you heart tingles cause it's just so romantic and flirty all the time. In terms of romance, this story is a 10/10 for sure.

    The next one is The Villain Master Dressed as a Heroine. It's a xianxia setting where the MC transmigrates into a book called the "Protagonist's Practice Manual" and her task is to help the heroine save the world and find true love. The unfortunate part is, she ends up transmigrating into the body of the villain master who abused the heroine and got ruthlessly tortured to death in the book. So instead of having that happen, she decides to be as kind to the heroine as possible to save herself from that fate in the future. A lot of stuff happens in between and the plot was changed along with some plot twists that happen in the middle that keep the story interesting. I will admit that while it was enjoyable, I still felt the story and plot was a little weak so I can only give it an 8/10. Weak as in, some of the reasoning behind certain events felt like they weren't sufficiently explained.

    The last one is After I Wear the Book, The Heroine and I are Really Fragrant. It's also a xianxia setting where the MC is the original author of the book she transmigrates into. The book is about the heroine being abused and fighting her way to the top, but despite being the strongest in the end and taking revenge on everyone, she's still all alone. The MC transmigrates into the body of the heroine's junior sister who was the one who started the heroine's path on blackening with how much she bullied her in the beginning. Of course, she reverses that by not following the plot and hanging around the heroine wanting to protect her instead. This is because 1. she feels really bad about what she wrote now that she's actually seeing it happen in front of her eyes and 2. she's a face dog and the heroine hits all her aesthetic points since she created her specifically to be the most beautiful in the world. The twist here is, the heroine is actually reborn. She's the heroine at the end of the book coming back to the beginning. Imagine her surprise when the cannon fodder junior sister of hers suddenly acts completely different. And that's the setup to a surprisingly sweet text with a little abuse sprinkled in, what with the heroine being the demon lord and all that. 9/10 because while I appreciate the setting, I feel like the MC didn't quite "earn" the heroine's love. I feel like if there's going to be a love story with a setting like this, it should be more like I Want to Be Alone, Beautifully where there's some consequences the author has to experience before the relationship feels equal.

    P.S. I will add that my ratings are based on similar settings I've read that I think were either 1. done better or 2. more intricate so I can't help but compare. Especially The Villain Master Dressed as a Heroine because it's similar to After the Full-Level Boss is Reborn and the latter is just way better in terms of everything. Unless a book has something that sticks out, I'm gonna end up comparing it to something else I read and if it doesn't live up to the standard of the previous books I've read, then I can't rate it very high.

    Anybody got some superhero or supervillain/regular civilian type books to read? Like kindle? There's not a lot of them honestly. I especially love stories where the FL slowly realizes the identity of the hero/villain.

    does anybody have some good abo novels? I've read soft sister becomes a, pregnant with the villains boss's baby, queen diji, I became a milk dog after being bitten by omega.

    我渣过的对象都偏执了[快穿] (my scumbags are paranoid) OH MY FU**INGG GOD!!!! this novel broke my heart and crushed my soul until it grinded it to dust. I FU**ING CRIED especially because of the last world or the real world because there is no happy ending. Like seriously I cried in every arc and I just REALLY REALLY wanted them to be together but IT NEVER HAPPENS.... I get my hopes up then BOOM it fucking plummets to the deepest layer of hell.
    every arc doesn't have a good ending and basically all the fl's of the arcs are yandere/possessive or whatever. they torture the mc and like rape her, AND THIS HAPPENS IN EVERY ARC

    *hoards it* not yet, but i will, dont worry, just send me anything u got, i appreciate it

    thank chuu a lot for the rec,

    when i say dark, it can mean anything from toxic relationships to graphic gore to satanistic cults or whatever, but tbh, i always want them to have a happy ending, coz i love happy endings, but i want there to be a lot of suffering first.

    if mc and fl get together or have an easy relationship, it just feels somewhat boring to me, you guys ever feel that?

    i feel like ive read a decent fanfic in line with that kind of plot, but i really can't remember the title nor which fandom i read it from anymore ;n;

    how many good fanfics do u want? :ROFLMAO:

    What fandom in particular? I'm very well-versed in fanfics since that was basically my go to media source for GL stories.

    Yeah... pretty much all of my fave stories are slow-burn and/or has some heavy angst before there's a happy end. One of my fave novels is I Want to be Alone, Beautifully, and that story is very abusive in the beginning until the entire plot gets revealed. The reason I'm even okay with how abusive the FL is towards the MC is cause it's a case of the MC being the author of all of the books the FL is the protagonist of and her path through said books are filled with abuse. It's just an eye for an eye at that point, so I can stomach it. It helps that the MC and FL both evolve through the story as does their relationship dynamic and they aren't truly "together" until later.

    Also I was looking through the popular baihe novels on jjwxc and I can't help but notice that Xuan Jian's novels are all locked??? I was looking through to see what's even going on and I saw a bunch of 1 star reviews talking about how they plagiarized. Does anyone know what's the story behind that cause??? They're the author of Presumptuous if you don't know who I'm talking about.

    Oh god, I remember reading this. I read through the entire first book, then halfway through the second before I had to stop cause goddamn did it get fucked up to a point that I could not stomach reading it. The only reason I even stuck to reading it for so long is cause I have this quirk where as long as the actual language is well-written, I can read anything whether it's fucked up or not. I can generally stomach a lot as long as it doesn't violate my bottom line for fictional works. Like I read through all of Crimson Rose and that whole RWBY fic was beyond fucked up.

    yep, i didnt mind all that dark stuff, what i minded more was that the yuri relationship wasnt good,
    that and how the author said on the first book that there was yuri, but there wasn't until the second book
    i also didnt expect the het AT ALL on that first book, like wtf r u lying to me for author?

    i haven't read Crimson Rose from RWBY, so i'll be looking that up thanks :3

    i used to be able to read anything even when it wasn't well written, coz it was so hard to find decent stuff with ffn,
    not so much anymore now that AO3 can basically filter what im in teh mood for

    Tbh it's easier to just search by popular pairings for GL fanfics (i.e. supercorp, catradora, korrasami, etc). That's ONLY if you're strictly looking for romance though. The unfortunate thing about GL fanfics is how most of them are focused specifically on romance and not a lot of action/plot.

    That's a big reason why I've mostly stopped reading fanfics now that I have baihe novels I can read. With baihe novels, at least there's a sizeable number of them that have a bigger focus on a plotline, which makes sense since they're original stories and need to have their own plot.
