Didn’t think it was possible to get depressed watching THE UNTAMED. Because after ep 30, I think I am😭😭😭.
It has the same effect like Zombie Apocalypse stories on me. I empathise too much apparently

    I know how you are feeling, @peony. *cries with you

    Hang in there!! Very soon you will get back to the present time line and Lan Zhan will forever be by WWX’s side to support and protect him.

      I know I know! But it wouldn’t be the same anymore!! I can’t bear watching characters losing their innocence and half the soul in one go onscreen.
      I know I shouldn’t do it but I’m the biggest what-if-er.
      It would’ve been a lil bit better if I cried and let it out…but nope. I’m sitting here in a corner, moody all day long. I’m trying to find solace via emoji-crying.😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

        Emoji cry with you, @peony 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

        However need to fret about the what-ifs here…..even though WWX gains deeper understanding of human nature in his second life, he still maintains the purity and goodness of his heart that Lan Zhan (and we) love!

    I actually took a break around ep 30, it was hard to keep watching the events that led up to WY’s death. Hang in there, you will be rewarded with their reunion soon!

      I too would take a break if I could. For my own mental health I better keep going and get it over with.
      Seriously, how could one live with that much guilt??!!
      What makes is harder to watch is that it’s extremely realistic. Very rarely an all-sacrificing selfless person borns, and the people around him don’t let him be the heaven-sent gift he is, and HE’S the person who ends up bearing all the undeserved guilt and despair and loneliness.😭😭

        It is very realistic and I like that all the characters have been affected, in the present and come to terms with their guilt.
        Have you read the author’s novel Heaven’s Official Blessings, it was heartbreaking and a beautiful story.

      Reading “Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation”, their extremely unhealthy kinks ALMOST tainted the story for life for me, and the incredible clever execution of the drama barely managed to salvage the experience.
      So I hope this story doesn’t sport anything like that and if so, I’m ABSOLUTELY willing to read. Because after all; the author seems to do charming plots and characterizations. Do you have a link please?🤗🤗🤗

        Yes it certainly isn’t as explicit as GDC, that was a huge shock, I’ve tried to block most of that out.
        If I remember correctly, HOB, the most they do is hug and kiss. I think this novel has extra chapters, which I haven’t read yet.
        It’s on google drive

          Be warned it is a lengthy novel to read and there are a lot of characters.

          Yaaay! Thank you for the link! I’ll check ot out asap. \^0^/
          .
          That’s good to know. Reading the latter half of GDC, I was like…WHY?? If I remember correctly, ALL their firsts happen while drunk. And THEN in the aftermath, WWX frets “I shouldn’t have done that.” Duh, dude. It’s better to forget altogether their kink explorations that followed.
          Let’s not even talk about how 99% of fan comments were heart-eyes and cheering for what happened, and downvoting the 1% who thought otherwise. *sighs.
          Glad to know it’s not the case here. Thanks again for going thru the trouble!

            Yeah I avoided the comments completely. I just wasn’t expecting the novel to take that turn, I thought the extra chapters would be a flashback scene or LZ perspective. Apparently it is common for BL novels to have this type of kink.

            So my comment disappeared! How annoying!

            I agree, I avoided the comments on the website. A lot of the comments made it sound normal so I think maybe it is common to portray characters like that in BL novels.
            I have yet to read the extras for HOB but the main storyline was sweet. I do have to mention the main characters met in their childhood and I think one of them was 16 and the other 10? But I think the way that the story developed over several years, meant that wasn’t an issue for me.

            @ayaan
            Comment as in you commented on a GDC chapter? If so didn’t see that😅. I too stopped reading after getting disheartened after 10 or so.
            I think there’s a lot of debate on this topic, because I even hate the term BL. I think it’s quite derogatory. Where’s GL, then?
            GDC had more than potential to turn the tides, but it went there and did THAT. You are giving me quite the positive impression on HOB. I’m looking forward to it!😄

        I responded to your comment earlier on db but it didn’t go through.
        Yes I prefer GL to be used but I just meant I hadn’t read this genre before even when I used to read manga!
        I hope you enjoy reading HOB, hopefully I haven’t praised it too much.

          Ahh no no when I commented upon BL I wasn’t directing it at you @ayaan , not at all. Please don’t be offended or hurt😅.
          Thank you too for chatting with me and helping me blow off steam! 🤗😘

    Eps 30-32/33 were hard for me too. When Lan Zhan comes back, it’s better too
