RATED T for language. Also, please see below for a very important announcement.
The film Fan Yuan chose was a science fiction film that was currently popular. The stereotypical plot of aliens invading Earth. The whole film was enhanced by the outstanding performance of the leading actors and actresses. The production was also excellent, with the director making everything more attractive by excellent use of special effects, such as the contrast of light and shadow.
Originally, Fan Yuan only intended to stall the male lead and prevent the plot from collapsing, but he was eventually attracted to the movie, and watched it till the end.
He was still immersed in the movie plot as he exited the cinema. He couldn’t help but voice his thoughts. “Actually, the lead actor didn’t have to die. His death had no actual influence whatsoever over the development of the story. What’s with getting infected by the st virus in the end, then finally taking the spaceship up into space and perishing alone? The script writers were too cruel. The man saved the Earth. Why couldn’t they let him live?”
Gu Qi patted him on the head and laughed. “Silly. If they didn’t do this, there wouldn’t be so many people that are moved, or sighing. The impression it would have left on people would have been greatly reduced.”
Fan Yuan disagreed, however. “It is too cruel to kill off a person at will just to leave a deep impression on the audience.”
“Xiao Yuan, it’s just a box office movie.”
Fan Yuan fell silent. He knew what Gu Qi said was true. It was just a story. There was nothing left to see once it’s finished. He had been here and there in myriads of worlds for many years. But the people who existed in the virtual world were present before his eyes. He could see in their eyes their joys and sorrows. He couldn’t see them as mere virtual characters.
He became dejected a moment later. “I know that this is just a movie. But the moment the creators wrote out each character, they were given life. In our eyes, they may just be insignificant roles. But in their own world, they are all people who are still alive. They can be hurt. They can be sad. They will all want to live. I can understand that he had to die if it was part of the plot, but if his death was meaningless other than that he just had to die, do you think that he would be willing to die?”
Gu Qi’s eyes flickered. He gazed into Fan Yuan’s clear eyes and explained with a complex tone of voice, “He wouldn’t, so what? Xiao Yuan, you are still too naive. You think that the hero’s death has no worth. Do you think that the villains were also willing to die? What about the lives of all the innocent people involved? There is little justice in this world. Some are born blessed, while some are doomed to fail. Some people won’t even leave behind their names. Only those who are truly strong are not bound by these inborn shackles. As for those who are unable to be masters of their own lives, they don’t even have sufficient capital to complain.”
Fan Yuan felt a surge of emotions upon hearing his words. His eyes were like burning embers and said excitedly, “You’re right. No one is willing to live under someone else’s rule. If one wants to be the master of his own fate, one has to get stronger himself.”
Gu Qi was relieved. He caressed the white and tender little face. He pulled a smile and said, “Good boy. Brother will go fetch the car. Just wait right here for me.”
Fan Yuan nodded obediently. After Gu Qi departed, he said impassionedly, “Xiao Wu, I think what the male lead has said was reasonable. Starting today, my goal will be to become a senior law enforcement adviser. I’ll work hard, strive to become stronger until I reach the peak of my life! I don’t want to be just a stranger with no name at all. And I definitely don’t want to involuntarily act as this kind of crazy gay person!”
“Xiao Wu, did you hear what I’ve just said? Xiao Wu, Xiao Wu!”
After a long time, Xiao Wu’s mechanical voice rang. “Ding. According to the comprehensive evaluation result of Master’s abilities, that is an impossible task. I ask Master to keep his feet on the ground and set an achievable goal.”
Fan Yuan: “……” He just built up his confidence. Can you not strike people down like this!
In fact, he couldn’t fault Xiao Wu’s extremely poisonous tongue. People like Fan Yuan who travel through time and space doing missions were as numerous as the stars. These people were implanted with a system managed by the source world. Once the source world stops supplying energy, the actor will not have enough energy to travel through space and time, and will eventually fall into a deep sleep. Their spirits will gradually dissipate, which means real death.
One particular group among these people are special. That was the Senior law enforcement advisers who were said to number no more than ten. They had the power to directly extract energy from the source world. At the same time, they also needed to protect the normal operation of the source world. Sometimes they would go to certain worlds to perform tasks, all depending on their own preferences without limitations. These were actors with true freedom.
Senior law enforcement advisers were at the top in terms of acting roles. Furthermore, the emergence of a new senior law enforcement adviser would mean the fall of an old one. Even actors from the Male lead group dare not to mention the goal of becoming a senior law enforcement adviser. Fan Yuan, as a gay love rival, said such a thing so lightly. One could only say that he was overreaching himself.
Fan Yuan, after cordially retreating and with a mind that sobered up a bit, thought of the brave words he just said. For a moment there, he wanted to cover his face in shame. “What I’ve just said, don’t take it seriously……”
“Ding. Master, don’t worry. No one would have taken that stupid remark seriously.”
Fan Yuan was bored to death as he waited for the male lead to return. Suddenly, he was pushed from behind. Baffled by this abrupt motion, he turned around and saw three Huang Mao-like boys looking at him with malicious intent.
“Xiao Wu, who are they?”
“Ding. According to the results of detection, these people are freshmen students of Class F in Songzhen High School.”
Fan Yuan touched his chin. “Class F. The famous gangster class……”
With one arm putting pressure on Gu Yuan’s shoulder, breath reeking of tobacco smoke which made Gu Yuan’s brows knit in a frown, someone said loudly “Hey, Gu Yuan. Came out to see a movie, huh? Got any money? Why don’t you help us brothers out a bit?”
Fan Yuan felt around in his pocket and innocently shook his head. “Nothing.”
The boys looked at each other. The tall one exclaimed, “Who are you trying to fool?! Everyone in school knows that you are a young master of the Gu family. How can you go out without money? Your family is freaking loaded, you shouldn’t be unwilling to part with such a small amount.”
“I really don’t have any, and……” Fan Yuan took the hand off his shoulder. “Even if I have money, why should I give it to you? It’s my Dad and Mom’s,” he protested, biting his lips.
“Ding. Master, it’s likely that you’ll infuriate them into beating you up.”
Fan Yuan retorted furiously,” Do I have a choice? The original host is a dull and introverted bookworm and otaku. I freaking want to crack an energy pill and wipe these gangsters out in a second, but can I? Why does it take so long for the male lead to get his car? Has he encountered an issue and forgot his little brother?”
“Ding. Master, please be careful…….”
Fan Yuan turned around and saw a dark fist flying towards his face. He made a conscious effort to press down the subconscious action to dodge. He closed his eyes and said in his head ‘I’m a powerless otaku, I can’t get away from this!’
“…… Xiao Wu, did you get me me a painless pill?”
“Ding. I haven’t exchanged for it yet…… But, Master shouldn’t need it.”
Huh? Fan Yuan opened his eyes cautiously and saw the fist stop point-blank in front of him. It was caught by a long, distinct hand. It couldn’t move anymore.
Fan Yuan lifted his gaze and saw an off-white coat flapping in the cold wind. The man smiled at him in backlight. The smile on his face was like a healing light, reminiscent of a beautiful, white-winged creature – the kind with a halo on its head.
It was different from the male lead’s overbearing aura. This person’s smile had the flavor of sunshine, the temperament of a lily magnolia – a nearly perfect man.
The male love rival…… Zhao Yuhao…… Why is he here?!
Radiating warm light, the male love rival slowly pulled the pervert’s hand away. He turned his face around, his smile even gentler but his eyes emanating a cold light. “Three boys bullying a girl is ungraceful, don’t you think?”
Fan Yuan ( -_-||||): ? ? ? ?
The previously loud-mouthed owner of the fist stepped back in fright upon seeing the male love rival. Shuddering, he said two extremely chuunibyou lines. “You are Sheng Di High’s Zhao Yuhao! Such damned bad luck! Bros, let’s hurry up and leave. This guy is a person we can’t afford to offend!”
Their expressions immediately changed at the mention of the name Zhao Yuhao. They turned and ran in a hurry. Twenty meters away, he turned back and shouted, “Gu Yuan, just you wait. You won’t be so lucky next time!”
Then, without turning his head, he ran away towards the sunset.
Fan Yuan: “……” Who did he offend now?!
Zhao Yuhao bent down and looked at him. With that trademark smile on his face, he said, “Don’t worry. If they cause you trouble again, just mention my name. That should do it.”
In front of his savior, Fan Yuan was very angry but he couldn’t show it. “Okay, thank you,” he said, after a long silence.
Unfortunately, the male love rival was insensitive. Completely oblivious to Fan Yuan’s emotions, which he struggled so hard against that he wanted to splash blood on the man’s face, Zhao Yuhao continued, “Your name is Gu Yuan? It doesn’t sound like a girl’s name. It also happens that my best friend’s brother is also called Gu Yuan. I haven’t met him, but I heard that he was a little otaku. Hahaha……”
Fan Yuan looked at him with a blank face. Suddenly, he looked behind him and said with a smile, “Big brother.”
Zhao Yuhao was stunned by her sweet smile. When he turned around, he saw his best friend staring suspiciously at them. His eyes had a dubious look and he felt a slight chill crawl down his back.
“Brother…… Big brother…… Big brother……”
The sound of Gu Yuan’s voice slowly echoed in his mind. For a moment, he seemed to be able to hear the sound of his heart breaking.
 Unable to leave a mark in history, or to be significant enough to be remembered throughout history.
 Huang Mao – Original cartoon characters, one of which is a Toad boss. It’s also a degrading way to call young boys, so teenage boys here. Probably some gangster-like students.
Hi there, kaylarala here! I would like to let you know of something one of your earlier fellow readers notified me with, some months ago. Apparently, someone was copying this translation onto Wattpad without A. Letting me know and B. crediting it back here on Ainushi. I understood that this person has the habit to copy-paste the translation works he/she likes on her Wattpad account. And the sad thing is, that those who read the translations there think that it was that person’s efforts and sure enough, praised that person. It’s a shame. I was mad at first but then it just saddens me.
I have of course tried to contact that person but I already noticed that apart from posting other people’s translations, he/she neither replies to comments nor replied to my messages. I haven’t checked back on Wattpad for some months since then. But of course since I haven’t posted the next chapter until now, so there wouldn’t have been any updates there as well.
Let me be CLEAR that my semi-hiatus was not because of this issue. I have just been busy with work and trying to get used to the new work. I still commit mistakes even though some months have passed. And I can only translate once a week, sometimes 2-3 times a month. I’m also not the only one working on this. Each chapter has to go through thorough editing and quality check. You can imagine how much time it takes to polish a chapter. Due to work, I also missed events such as White Day and the recent Ainushi Anniversary. Apologies for that.
Excuse me for the long note. I hope this chapter makes your day. I will definitely have to make you wait for a while for the next updates. There are 10 parts to chapter 2 and by next update hopefully I post all the remaining parts. So, though it’s okay to comment, asking for updates, please realize that I am not the same as Kez, great translator of FOD (I’m a fan of both, ok?). I really don’t want to keep leaving you cliffhangers but this update is a sign from me to let you know that I am still working on this (and I’m alive!) XDD
See you next time! Whenever that’ll be!
Chapter 2.3 || TOC || Chapter 2.5
Did the second male lead’s heart broke because he realized that this pretty ‘LADY’ is actually a guy who had a feminine figure? ???
Yes, and not only that, his best friend’s little brother which totally makes him off limits. Maybe. The bro-con bestfriend haha~
Mimi, that’s my understanding too hahahaha!
Thank you very much for the update~!!!!
That is just sad for you to actually have someone copying your work and not giving you any credit. I actually saw a lot of people on wattpad do that and I always leave comments for them to give credit or erase it.
Anyway thank you so much for this translation and I love this chapter! It was so funny when his heart broke because he realized it wasn’t a girl and that he was his best friend’s brother! XD
I laughed when I translated that part and the jealous big bro, that was hilarious and kinda made me giddy at the same time!
Thanks for the chapter! Please take your time, and thank you for your work. I quite like this novel and can wait patiently for updates!
Oh! Thanks very much for your patience. I thought the readers would be mad due to the long wait..
Thanks for your hard work.
Thanks for your patience!
Glad to hear you haven’t dropped this as I enjoyed the earlier chapters! Thanks for the update! Sorry to hear about other people stealing your work. Do report the person so their wattpad account will be taken down.
That’s a painful course of action. I’ll check on things first. Thanks for the support!
Report that bad user! #guilty
Support ML got heart brokenn
I’m all for support, yeah!
I get so damn mad whenever I see someone copying others works! The author of The General is Scary stopped posting the story because of this, lots of translator drop their projects because of this gaaaah
Can’t they just, I don’t know, stop being such an asses?!
I don’t mind that the person reposted it on Wattpad. I just wanted to be informed about if beforehand and the group effort on the translation acknowledged and credited. The Wattpad user isn’t a bad person, I think. Just ignorant.
Ty for the chapter. I am finding this novel because I suddenly remember it. Thank you for not dropping this! I think you should contact this Wattpad user but that depends on you if you gonna report this person. I’m low battery now so bye bye tnx! You work hard!
I did try but this person didn’t respond at all. And having to report a user really leaves a bad taste in my mouth so that should only be done as a last resort. Bye!
Maybe a way to protect your work is that….. What should I say it ummm…. Security measures? Add your website with the translation? Or maybe security measures? Yah add password? Although it’s a pain in the a** to look for the password in a previous chapter. But at least maybe he/she this wattpat user can see what your trying to say. Just report the f****** b****!!!!!
Uh ok? Let me just deliberate on that. Yeah.
Thank you very much.you really make my day! Actually,I away look for this novel to pop up in novelsupdate. Also good luck for your work hope you have comfortable work and helpful coworkers!
Thank you! I hope so too!
People stealing others hard work just makes me so frustrated and mad!! I’m sorry that something like this is happening. Uggghh, it makes me wanna march on over to wattpad and get justice or something but I wouldn’t know what to do besides leaving angry comments. >:((
Thanks for the chapter! This system world is kinda interesting .
Your feelings are enough haha~~ And yes, it really is interesting.
Thank you for the translations! I tried to find the wattpad account but came up with nothing so maybe they deleted it?
I hope so? I’ll check as well, just in case.
Thank you so much for updating and letting us know you’re still active in this project!
I’m looking forward to the rest when you’re able to update. ❤❤❤
Thanks as well for your understanding!
Please take your time, I think everyone knows how real life and your health should take priority! Thank you for updating!
Thanks for the chapter! Sucks when people do that. I’ve noticed a lot of the novels I read show up on wattpad, but I never read it there unless the translator says it’s theirs. Especially things that aren’t credited.
“Good boy. Brother will go fetch the car. Just wait right here for me.”
Sounds like something a kidnapper would say.
Now that you mention it, it actually does haha~~
Hey there! I am sry to listen that people have been stealing your works and putting it up in their wattpad accounts. I myself have one account….so i know how readers mistake the efforts of the REAL translators as the ones made by the uploader. I can check and be of some help to you….if u want. Anyways, u can just put a few sentences in the middle of the paragraph….like….read this on ainushi.com….or something like that. Then the readers will know about this site….and anyways thanks for the update…waited months for this one tho. Make an update sooner! ??
Do your best translator sama. I will patiently wait for updates even its kills me.
It sounds like you work really hard, please take care of your health!
I read a ton of original stories on wattpad and when I see the reposting ones that don’t credit I report them. >:}
Wonder what the brocon will do~
THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR BEING AWESOME! ! !
Oh you bet. Because being sick is so expensive but eating healthy is also expensive OTL
Sorry I hadn’t realized this was here because I don’t check back here very often anymore ?. It’s great to know that you’re still around!
And thanks for the chapter!!!?
this is a very good story !!!!
to appreciate and distribute to people
I want to translate it to Indonesian language then sent to wattpad
so I want to get your permission
Oh! Yes, my pleasure. Feel free to translate ahead of me if you want – in Indonesian. Interesting… Send me a link once it’s up!
Thank you for translating! Thank you Team Ainushi for the hard work! So excited for what’s next o(>v<)o
This is sooo gooood (*≧∀≦*)
LMAO!! Zhao Yuhao is dumbstruck ed!! I wish I can see this little brother in person to test if I can really mistake him for a girl. Thank you for your work! Sorry about those thieves who are stealing your hard works. I hope they pay in some way for what they did. See you soon!
Good luck with your job:) And I love this story! So thank you for translating it. I’m looking forward to the next update. And don’t worry about making us wait, all it means is we have an excuse to find another novel to binge read! (My NU reading list has gone from 3 series to 47 because of this phenomenon 🙂 And it’s still growing…)
Can you connect the link from this chapter to the next button of the last one? 😀
It doesn’t work
Really? I’ll get on this right away but there is another next button you can use below. Thanks for the heads up!
Kay, Kriz here. To connect the buttons, make sure to correctly tag the category of your novel. It’ll auto populate the next and back buttons on the page.
WHAT?! That unknown speck dared to claim your hardwork of translating?!! Where is my pitch fork? Wait– let me get it and get that person taste the consequences of being ungrateful! I will definitely force feed someone with spam can after this. *cracks knuckles*
Oh. And I think after successfully (or unsuccessfully) taking down that stinking copycat from wattpad. I think the best countermeasure is to create an account, cross post and cover all the base websites that is vulnerable for those ungrateful little ****. Or do the insert your link of this website and the do not repost in between spaces of some of your translations.
hmmm… kinda a hassle? Sorry. Thank you for your suggestions and your thoughtfulness for my matters. ^^
Thank you for these chapters!
They are really great, I love this story.
I love it too!
thanks for the chapter!
I’m so glad that you decided to continue translating despite your busy schedule. Having your work stolen is an awful experience and a complete demotivator to continue translating, so I’m sure that didn’t help. Thank you so much for your hard work.
Somehow, I get the feeling that big brother is one of those senior law enforcement advisors. His insight into the character’s lives makes me think he is also at least a world hopping character. Gu Yuan doesn’t realize how adorable he is, does he? Poor female lead is going to have to compete with him for both the male lead and the second male lead.
It must be so difficult to force himself to act like the host character. Although, in some respects (eating good food), he doesn’t seem to be trying so hard! Hahaha. Can’t blame him. His last life was too sad. Hopefully this one ends better!
I share your sentiment *laughs* And your guess is as good as mine. I’m not one to read ahead. I basically enjoy the story as I translate.
Work has been…. well, Overtime almost every week and I only have one day-off. Yeah…
Thank you for the amazing translation!!! This story is hilarious! I love how our oblivious little bun gathers male suitors while completely unaware of it))) Jealous big brother is a go~ Also, brother mentioned that he feels that pampering MC, following him and loving him is an “instinct” now. And we don’t actually know how many times the MC “played” the gay now, but we do know that the universe where he dies alone from cancer got mysteriously destroyed for “unknown” reasons, so… Yeeeaaahh, I think our bun should just give up on any straightness he believes he and ML still possess)))
I agree lolz
The emoticons are cute!!
I have one fear for this novel… its called…. “Possessiveness”. Ok so ima go on a rant rlly quick. I got into this genre cause of FOD and Heroic Death System. I love it however there are so many overly possessive ML’s like HELP. Its gotten to a point where I cant even read the novel cause of how bad I feel knowing that the mc has to deal with that. EX. Every World is not Quite Right. HE LITERALLY KIDNAPPED HIM. Also everything happens just cause it can, like he changed his hairstyle and all of a sudden everyone loved him and hated the MC LIKE WHAT. There are alot more like this and there are also good ones. Anyway if you know any that dont have possessive MC’s please tell me.
I’ll keep a look out for you! I’m all for looking for all sorts of character types. I don’t know why people seem to dig the overbearing Gong types. Hmm, would an overbearing Shou be alright with you though?
I’m really enjoying this story so far. Thank you for translating!
You’re welcome! Thank you as well for giving it a read.
Ugh, I hate thiefs. Today I found one on Wattpad and tried to alert the translators + told the thief to delete the books. Hopefully, they will do that and stop stealing.
Anyway, thank you for translating this. I am grateful
Wow, thank you for helping us translators out!
No encuentro los capítulos adelantados en Patreon, podría alguien ayudarme?
Oh sorry I don’t actually have a Patreon.
Thanks for translating this. I’m so excited to see that happens next!!!!!! Lol is the love rival into the brother? Lol
Hola. Buenos días. Gracias por tus grandes esfuerzos y entiendo tu trabajo asi que tomate tu tiempo necesario para traducir que lo estare esperando con gusto.
Thank you for your understanding. I should update again before the year ends. Hola!
I am so happy you came back! I didn´t know about the wattpad incident, I hope it stopped now. You know I tried to read this with GT but I don´t know why it was sooo much difficult than others novels…I was so upset that you was not trnslating this anymore…but now I am happy again haahhaah
Ohh I think this is the quid of our ML identity “Gu Qi’s eyes flickered. He gazed into Fan Yuan’s clear eyes and explained with a complex tone of voice, “He wouldn’t, so what? Xiao Yuan, you are still too naive. You think that the hero’s death has no worth. Do you think that the villains were also willing to die? What about the lives of all the innocent people involved? There is little justice in this world. Some are born blessed, while some are doomed to fail. Some people won’t even leave behind their names. Only those who are truly strong are not bound by these inborn shackles. As for those who are unable to be masters of their own lives, they don’t even have sufficient capital to complain.”
FY is making every male fell in love with him or What?! Haha
Sorry to hear about your Hard work being posted in wattpad. That person is despicable.
Thanks for the chapter!
pffffffffffffff how high is his charisma that even the second male lead is thinking him pretty
So I just checked, and I didn’t see this translation(or any other) of this story on wattpad. So you’re all good! Thank you for your hard work!
