    I’m just too curious to know: when does ML come to look like a penguin? I assume Luya, the red gold crow, is ML, but on the cover of the book, the person in the ML’s space, has the coloring and look of a penguin. Is it a different person? Is Luya not ML? Or did they decide to put someone other than ML on the cover? Or did the cover illustrator just massively screw up?

    If anyone knows, I’d be grateful for the clarification!

    So how come he has black hair with a gold streak (looking, to me, at least, like a penguin) instead of the red gold hair described in the novel? That’s why I was thinking it must be a different person, a disguise, or the illustrator messed up.

    Thanks a lot! (Lol many girls waiting to call him uncle xD)
    Btw... mind clarifying how and why he reincarnated? Did he not hatch or did he fall in battle or something?
    Also... why does Lu Ya not like dragons?(was it dragons, water, or aquatic beings?)
    How about the extras? What were they about? I tried to read mtl but I got confused by them.

    Slow born, mc and ml started out rough then their relationship got better and better, until straight MC accepted that he was bent by ML and if i rmb correctly, ML thought they were in r/s, but MC was like '???'

    And there are plentiful of lovey dovey scenes
    At least to me, it makes me go "awwwww"

    Like there was one scene where MC was doing a broadcast, and ML as the bird form was in his arms, then ML start combing MC's hair for him with his beak. Added on to author's desciption of the orange sunlight casting itself onto MC + the fan viewing the broadcast saying comments on how sweet the scene is.... deadededed.



    and MC confessed first (kind of) their confession was really... hahahhaah :blobpopcorn_cool:

    And yes theres smutty part:aww: strong ml is strong

    And i forget the plot so cant answer the one on top hahah
