When he no longer obsesses over the past and has learned how to think, then he will he have truly grown up.

Don’t Discriminate Against Species

He was never a saint, but love made it easy to be humble, easy to forgive, and easy to tolerate, letting him bear the weight of those things he had thought he wouldn’t be able to bear.

Love is too Frustrating

Summary

Mermaid Effect follows the story of Rand Sievers, an ordinary person unknowingly surrounded by psychopaths. Rand was once kidnapped as a child, and when his brother finally found him years later, he no longer remembered anything.

Then one day, Rand picked up a stranded “fish” from the beach, kept it as a pet, and gave it the name “Munster.” Little did he know that he was actually raising a biological weapon… a real monster.

Mo Wang is also known as Devil on NovelUpdates, but that’s a mistranslation. Devil Prince or Devil King should be closer… But anyways, I am sooooo in love with this novel. It’s sooo good, but so underrated, and Hei Dan is just soooo cute!!!

Wen Xuan gritted his teeth as he once again complained, saying those four words: “… This is so unfair.”

There was a person who knew everything about him, would unconditionally accept all of him, and would say over and over again that they’ll always be with him.

And yet he knew nothing about him.

Summary

Rong Yi, an omega who doesn’t look at all like the typical cute and fragile omega, had been dumped so many times when the alphas find out he was actually an omega. They all kept mistaking him for an alpha and would treat him more like a bro than a love interest.

Until one day, after being dumped once again, he found an alpha actively pursuing him! This alpha was handsome, taller than him, had a good figure, and was so in line with Rong Yi’s taste that it was hard to believe that this guy would like him. Not long after, they started dating. Everything was going so smoothly, it felt like a dream.

Review

(more…)

The True God falls from the heavens, morals collapse and decay,

Heavenly law wellaway, and men can turn into beasts,

The blade-bearer roars, and the grazer rushes.

It rushes and rushes, lightly and resigned…

Bestial Blade by Priest

I’ve been rereading some of the earlier chapters to recall some details, and I noticed that, in Chapter 1, the elder sung a song when it gave baby Chang An a bone plate. The first translator didn’t translate it though, so I’ll be doing it instead, since this song seems very important in the story. It has been alluded to many times, as well.

Translator’s Notes

真神坠苍,伦常崩朽,  
呜呼天道,人可成兽。  
执刀者呼啸,食草者奔走。  
奔走奔走,瑟瑟苟苟……

The first two lines lament the corruption of humankind. Lu._.ci and Joyce of the Chrysanthemum Garden server helped me out immensely in translating this!

食草 – Literally, to feed on grass, and hence, “grazer.” Probably a metaphor for the weaker ones (i.e. sub-beasts and women)

So to be able to find you and be with you, does that still not count as my luck being good?

Chen Xing, Dinghai Fusheng Records

A lone Milky Way ran through the spring night, seeming as if they had crossed into time immemorial. The stars were like vestiges left by a dragon in the night, like a waterfall flowing from the top of its head. Xiang Shu held onto Chen Xing, raised his head, and gazed up at the glittering silver traces in the night sky.

The Milky Way in the South held no differences from the Milky Way in the North; the lives between heaven and earth seemed insignificantly small at this moment. After all, they were only imperceptible creatures under the vast arching sky.
