    Summary

    Ad Infinitum: again and again in the same way; forever.

    What is it about stories that entice us so whole-heartedly? Why do we love to hear about adventures that never happened, or visits to fictional lands that don't exist?
    Maybe it's because we know we can leave the story if it becomes too much. We are always in control of what happens. We take comfort in the ability to warp and control our surroundings in the books we read.

    But what happens when you lose that control?

    What happens when someone else is in charge of your fate?

    Summary

    A young Prince Ye Hua is brought to the Peach Tree Woods one day by his teacher to practise his painting skills beyond the rigid confines of the palace study hall.

    Not long after settling down near a pond with his art box and brushes, the solemn and taciturn black dragon prince is happened upon by the most unusual creature he could ever imagine. That the wild-spirited, carefree white nine-tailed fox turns out to be Princess Bai Qian of Qing Qiu makes her even more shocking to him. Yet it's the "crazy fox girl" who ends up teaching Ye Hua how to break from traditional style in his painting and how to truly see with an artist's eye.

    Years later, Ye Hua returns to the Woods. And it's through his encounters once more with the joyful, laughing Bai Qian that Ye Hua receives his greatest teaching of all... love.

    But will love be powerful enough for Ye Hua to face a brush with Fate?

    Summary

    "A captivating fantasy," Jin Ling reads the newspaper out loud. "By esteemed writer and poet Lan Jingyi. If one looks closer at his choice of extended metaphors, 'A Road to Somewhere' is a fantastic allegory of the world we live in, separating the obscene from the holy, the humans and the Gods, the--"

    Lan Jingyi groans.

    ~

    Alternatively: All promises are broken by default until they are honoured. More than ten years after A-Yuan promised him that they'd meet again, Lan Jingyi is ready to take matters into his own hands.

    Summary

    I’ve always been the boy that does everything right. As the future leader of the Sethian Saints, I’ve devoted my life to “redeeming” as many of the Damned (you’d call them vampires, I suppose) as I possibly can.

    But on the very first mission with my new partner (who I’ve had a crush on since we were kids. Don’t ask.) things get complicated. What should be a simple case quickly reveals layers of conspiracy I could never have imagined.

    Everything I thought was solid truth begins unraveling beneath a web of lies and secrets. After a lifetime of faith, for the first time I’m starting to wonder…

    Maybe I’m not that boy, after all.

    Summary

    If you look closely at your surroundings, you can see the seams that hold our world together. If you look around, you can see it reflected on everything around you. Can you see the colors? Can you see the distinct patterns in the walls?

    This dimension around us is alive; it's living just like you and me. Every dimension is alive. They grow and nurture themselves into something unique and beautiful.

    Some dimensions are dead. Sometimes they collapse in on themselves, get destroyed, or simply get too old. Although most tend to die because no one needs them anymore.

    After he left, he paid me a visit. I was unaware at the time but now I understand what happened that one evening. Thankfully, if you enter your own mind, you can see the memories you have no hope of remembering.

    He left something behind for me to take care of. It was clear from day 1 that he had full intentions of coming back and reclaiming what was his, to begin with. I was only the middle-man unknowingly hanging onto it for him. I'll give credit where it's due, looking back now, what he did was a smart move.

    But aside from that, it's a shame that I'm the one who has to suffer from it.

    So why is he forced to play the role of a villain in a novel he never even read!? After being killed and transmigrated into his younger sisters favorite novel, Liang Fei finds himself in the tough situation of surviving in a novel he's never read and a genre he's unfamiliar with.

    Summary

    In a world plagued by darkness and death, as a punishment of the gods for daring to steal a god's fire, humans were living in despair for generations, until a young god took pity on them and take the task to find the missing fire, so the punishment will be lifted and humanity could prosper.

    However, as Wei Ying traveled the lands as a wanderer, gained friends, fall in love with a mortal man and try to save humanity, he found out that there was a godly plot behind the stolen fire that will make both heaven and earth tremble in chaos.

    A Wangxian story. I don't own Mo Dao Zu Shi novel or drama. BAD ENGLISH, even if the story is interesting. Take that in mind before diving in.
