Thrive in Catastrophe

Title: Thrive in Catastrophe





This story is about a rookie researcher, who was forcefully dragged away from his restful life, compelled into facing various killers and zombies, always having to risk his life at the brink of death, and finally becoming an advanced researcher that is acclaimed by all. And throughout his adventure, he met an alluring(?) killing machine, who he started to have fantasies on after they had an accidental kiss...


Xiao Yan: Did I fall for him? But he's a man!


Maya: Who knows.... maybe it's the other way round?



What I Think



Honestly, this just feels like another tale of exploitation. The male lead (ML) is completely reprehensible.


Firstly, why is their relationship reduced to just physical intimacy? It's so narrow and frustrating. Plus, the ML is fully aware that he has no more than two years left to live and that he's bound to harm the MC severely. Isn't it incredibly selfish to make the MC fall deeply in love under these circumstances? What is the MC supposed to do after the ML's death?


I can't accept that the ML truly loves the MC; it seems more like he's just using him. Genuine love doesn't involve manipulating someone's feelings through hypnosis – that's just one-sided and abusive. Reading about the MC's "true" feelings made me feel sick. At least with a character like Jane, despite his faults, there's an element of transparency. You know where you stand with him.


It's a shame, really, because the translation is top-notch. But for me, this story misses the mark on what BL should represent.
