On May 19, 2018, I started writing my first web novel series, Oh. My. Fate?!. As it often is with new things there is a bit of trial and error involved and now that I’ve almost reached the end of the fourth volume of the series I sometimes look back and think “Damn, I could have done better!”.

Zhi Bao Yu was immensely baffled. This former co-worker of hers had finally gotten into a relationship after all these years but he didn’t jump his boyfriend immediately and instead decided with him to wait another two weeks?
Could it be … this was some kind of hidden camera TV show?
She lowered the phone and warily looked around. She couldn’t spot anyone or anything suspicious though. Well, she was already at home. The only one who could have tried to play a prank on her here was her boyfriend and he was still at work. And she felt like she was observant enough to notice had anything changed in their apartment.
No, this probably wasn’t a TV show. So that only left one possibility: Su Yan was being serious. She took some time to digest this information, an awkward silence engulfing their phone call. Continue reading
“All set.” Nie Chang pushed the notebook back to Su Yan and slid to the side.
“Thank you!” Su Yan really wanted to give him a kiss as a reward but he didn’t dare to after what had happened just now so he settled for a bright smile.
Nie Chang tussled his hair in response and watched as Su Yan pulled the notebook closer.
Naturally, Su Yan didn’t want to wait any longer. He clicked on the button to create a new novel and wriggled his fingers. Ah, he would really do it now! His first new story after all these months and even one in a different genre. He really was excited to see what the readers would think. Would there be some people among them who had read his fanfictions, too?
He wanted to fill out the form to set up his novel but instantly paused.
Shit! Continue reading
Su Yan hesitated for a while whether or not he should put some novels into his reading list. Wouldn’t it look strange for someone not to have even a single book they read but post a story? Come to think of it, it would probably look strange anyway if he just registered his account and then posted the same day, wouldn’t it?
He pursed his lips and contemplated, the cursor hovering over the button to create a story. It wasn’t a problem to put some books he had read on his other account into his new reading list but … how long should he wait until he uploaded the story? This was a task the system had given him, after all! Oh, well, there was also the problem that he hadn’t read any bl besides that one novel. He couldn’t only put xianxia in there, could he? Continue reading
Su Yan and Nie Chang arrived at the boutique Zhi Bao Yu had recommended. It didn’t look much different from the second shop. The boutique was at an intersection with broad shop-windows on both sides that showcased a few of the designs already. Most of it was decorations though.
Su Yan perked up. This really looked good! Asking an experienced woman for this kind of thing had still been the right choice!
Su Yan hurriedly pulled Nie Chang into the shop. He didn’t even wait for him to open the door even though it was obvious that Nie Chang had intended to do so. Being faced with such enthusiasm Nie Chang only smiled wryly. He really was curious what Su Yan had planned. Continue reading
When Su Yan came out of the cubicle and went over to the counter his expression said that he knew exactly what was going on and that he absolutely wasn’t happy about it. Nie Chang just looked at him and smiled though. Actually, he hadn’t thought any deeper about what he had said. He was Su Yan’s boyfriend now so it felt natural to him to cover his expenses. In fact, if he hadn’t been afraid that he’d be asking too much he’d have invited Su Yan to move in with him already. Continue reading
Su Yan slapped those hands away and frowned. “What do you think you’re doing?!” Naturally, he wasn’t angry because of the kiss. But how could Nie Chang just pinch his cheeks like this in public?! Wouldn’t everyone think of him as an idiot?
Nie Chang just smiled and even took it up a notch and ruffled his hair. Su Yan was even cuter when he looked this disgruntled. It had the charm of a baby hedgehog that tried to scare one away with its spines but only managed to draw people closer. Ah, even if it hurt, he’d still want to hug him! Continue reading
The two of them looked at the websites of the shops Su Yan had chosen for a while before Su Yan suddenly remembered something. He took his hand from the notebook and turned to face Nie Chang.
“Why did you actually come here?”
Nie Chang gave a start. Shit! He had completely forgotten that he had volunteered to take care of lunch. He gulped and looked at the door to the back room. Old Lao and Gong Gong were probably already asking themselves when their food would come. How long had it been? He looked at his watch and grimaced. It had been three-fourths of an hour.
Nie Chang coughed and looked up at Su Yan. “Uh … I wanted to order lunch. What do you want?”
Su Yan thought about it but couldn’t really decide. “What are you eating? I’ll take the same!” Continue reading
As soon as Xiao Li was out of the room, he gave a relieved sigh. He didn’t mind pretending but it was really stressful to pretend to be a nice guy. When pretending to be a demonic sect disciple he could at least show his true personality.
Well, whatever. That part of his life would soon be over. Then he could finally live in the demon realm. Maybe His Majesty would even give him a post if he was satisfied with the information he reported to him.
With a slight smile on his lips, Xiao Li descended the steps. Now that he had finally dealt with that annoying girl, he could go and speak to Madam Zhong. It really was time to find out more. Continue reading
“Are you sure?” Su Yan felt a bit bad asking this. He was the one who had called to ask her but now he actually suspected her advice. This wasn’t right.
“Of course, I am! Trust me. He’ll love it.”
“Mn. Alright, thank you!”
“No problem. I owe you one anyway.” Zhi Bao Yu laughed. Ah, she couldn’t believe that everything had turned out this way. Well, at least her female intuition was still right.
She ended the call with a smile. Huh, so Su Yan really was gay. Mn, she had thought as much. But now she really wanted to rally the others and go over to that repair shop to have a look at Su Yan and his boyfriend.
She looked around but the service area was just getting busy. It seemed like she’d have to bring it up later. Continue reading
