A Cruel Romance

A Cruel Romance by Níluó

"This is the story of a lonely young man.

This young man comes from wealth and prestige, is well-endowed in both appearance and temperament, is a warlord by profession, and has no unhealthy avocations. In the opening of this romance, he is in the course of performing military service in some desolate dump, making a living from pillaging neighbouring towns and moonlighting as an opium dealer."

*Pleased be warned that mature themes such as graphic violence and adult content will appear. The story contains homoerotic elements.

Found this chart on ye olde Baidu Baike, probably dating back a few years since it only covers Niluo's earlier works. Whoever made this deserves an actual medal... Edit: the chart was created by hawqueen!

Or is happening, and here’s a trailer of it:

Since I read the original novel years ago I honestly can’t remember much other than it’s mostly about an immortal conman running around exorcizing spirits and slaying vengeful ghosts/zombies/other occult beasties while doing sweet domestic things with his significant other(s), and it’s most definitely het, although a lot of people insist that the first volume, which this show is based on, I think, is about a threesome.

No, I haven’t seen it, but if you wish to you can search for 无心法师 or “Wuxin the Monster Killer” (What. Yes. I don’t even know.) on the video sharing site of your choice.
