Astra was a gay man. A solid top, a seme, the real deal. Unfortunately, he transmigrated into a BG harem novel.

The Journey was a popular web novel based on an intergalactic setting. The whole book was filled with the straight romance between one male lead and his harem of beauties. The male lead of the novel was actually over 30 years old, but after consuming a secret medicine his body regressed back to that of a teenager. The male lead was the perfect mix of shy and mature, passionate and innocent — all at the same time. No other person could unify all those conflicting traits as well as the male lead did.

Needless to say, the male lead was exactly Astra’s type. 

If only Astra could, then he would. 

But the author had told Astra: There’s no way for you to un-transmigrate yourself, this is a harem novel, the world setting doesn’t even have ‘gay’ in its vocabulary and on top of that, you have to remain in character at all times.

And what kind of character was this Astra from the book? Nicknamed ‘Sunny’, known for being sweet but kind of dumb, the male lead’s best buddy, a loyal little underling for the mighty male lead. And worst of all – straight as they come. 

And so, every time he witnessed the male lead’s domineering aura while wiping out the bad guys, Astra would pay his due respects and act along with the rest of the crowd: “You’re so awesome!”

But in his head, Astra would definitely be thinking: Damn this slutty little thing, everytime he cooks he’s gotta wear that apron and tie it so tight around his tiny waist. 

A waist that was small enough for Astra to wrap his hands around. 

 

 

For a gay man, Astra has always had pretty good luck with the ladies. 

In a bar: Wen (ML) watched as a woman with heavy makeup flirted with his best buddy. His face darkened as the violent storm of emotions in his heart threatened to burst forth. For a moment, Wen wondered if his controlling and possessive instincts were getting a little out of control. 

It took awhile for him to realize that he was actually jealous of that woman. 

But Astra, the one who turned him so weird in the first place, was actually an idiot who didn’t understand a thing — how could the idiot Astra know of the effect he had on Wen?

    • At the time of your question, once a week since I’m dying of a condition called university, but in the future I hope to get better at time management and maybe go for at least 2X per week.
