Proud Immortal Demigod Way

Work Text:

Proud Immortal Demigod Way  was a stallion novel. To be exact, it was a novel that mixed the cultivation novel, with a ridiculous number of words per chapter, with a harem that touched a three-digit number where every single female character fell in love with the protagonist and the Greek gods.

What did the Greek gods have to do with the world of cultivation? Absolutely nothing! 

The worst part was that the gods were described as equal to how they appeared in the books of the American author Rick Riordan, and there were many elements taken from Riordan's books! 

For example, many cultivators were also demigods, although there was no logic as to how there could be foreign gods in damned ancient China.

How the author had never had a copyright infringement complaint was a mystery.

The plot was awful, the characters had a lot of I.Q, and there was no logic in everything that was going on. 

But despite all this, Shen Yuan continued to read it until his death, cursing the novel and author with his last breath. 

Shen Yuan never expected to transmigrate in PIDW.

Moreover, he did not expect to transmigrate into the novel's villain, destined to make a horrible death.

Universe, are you fucking kidding me? 

Why couldn't he be reborn in the protagonist? At least Shen Yan would be surrounded by beautiful women, including goddesses!

No, Shen Yuan had to transmigrate into Shen Qingqiu, a rancor man who did everything to ruin the life of his disciple. 

What was the reason for his hatred of the novel's hero, Luo Binghe?  

The reason was simple: Shen Qingqiu had never been claimed by his godly parent, and he envied all the demigods who had obtained it. 

In theory, Luo Binghe hadn't been claimed either, but the villain didn't care: the disciple was more powerful than him, so the boy had to be subjected to the worst possible abuse. 

Things only got worse when it was revealed that Luo Binghe was the son of Tartarus - a revelation that made Shen Yuan scream  this never happened in mythology  - and Shen Qingqiu nearly killed his disciple.

Obviously, Luo Binghe survived, and came back completely changed, ready to make all those who had wronged him pay, especially his ex Shizun. 

Shen Yuan didn't want to die a slow and painful death. Again. 

He will change the plot.

His plan was simple: hug the protagonist's thighs and hope that Luo Binghe will be grateful to him for educating him when he becomes the master of the world. 

Above all, Shen Yuan was not at all interested in knowing who his divine parent was. It was just a source of trouble.  Too bad that not everyone had caught the memo.

Shen Qingqiu felt there was something wrong with his body. Lowering his head, a "fuck" almost shot out of his mouth.

It wasn't enough to have lost 150 points, to be humiliated in front of his students, and to wake up with a pounding headache.

No, he also had to wake up half-naked in front of a damned demon!

All Ning Yingying's fault! To be a daughter of Hebe, she attracted an immense number of monsters and trouble. 

In the novel, fifty chapters were only about her who had to be saved by Luo Binghe, where she had repeatedly cursed for the female protagonist's lack of IQ and the use of monsters from two different mythologies without any logical criteria. 

Did the demigods also attract the Chinese demons? It was never made clear, but judging from Ning Yingying's near-death experiences, the answer seemed to be a firm  yes, they did .  

And here's how all three ended up in Skinner's hands. A daughter of Hebe, a son of Tartarus, and a son of… well, an unrecognized demigod. Enough power to get a monster's attention. 

Shen Qingqiu's face turned red and white. He wanted to use his sword to dig a hole in the ground and bury himself, but the cultivator didn't know where it had gone. 

The demon seemed too interested in his skin. 

“Ah, what a hassle! if my demonic cultivation wasn't damaged, I wouldn't need to keep shedding my skin! - the Skinner said, walking towards Ning Yingying and Luo Binghe - I can probably use this skin for quite a while. I might even stick with that old man, in the end, he is not too bad. But now that you're here... the son of the woman who forced me to do this... I could take my well-deserved revenge! "

Shen Qingqiu had to keep from rolling his eyes.

It was the typical cliché of the novel: monster obsessed with revenge who could not take it out on the god in question and therefore contented himself with the son of that divinity. 

He always hated that part. 

"Don't you always target beautiful young girls?" 

The Skinner answered, "I never said to choose only young women as victims. It's just that most men don't have skin as good as a woman's! But your case is different. You have your mother's skin. How I envy you!"

As if to underline this last sentence, she stretched out her hands and rubbed them on Shen Qingqiu's upper body, "Ah, I was right. Soft and delicious like hers! And you took something else ... yes, I see it ... how much beauty ... how much grace ... yes, you are really her son ... "

Shen Qingqiu had to take on a cold and aloof appearance, even though that touch made him shiver. He couldn't lose focus, and had to play cunning to save them all. 

And thinking about it, was there not an OP protagonist in a stallion novel with him who absolutely could not die?

He smiled, showing off an amusement he didn't feel at all.

"What are you smiling for?" the demon asked with cautious curiosity.

“There are three people here, yet it doesn't seem like you have made the best choice for your next skin - the cultivator said, looking at Luo Binghe - Here you have someone worth more than me. And he's much younger. "

The demon snorted, "Do you think he hasn't noticed? Very young, but you two don't have the same mother, I don't care. " 

Is it possible to know why you are so obsessed with my mother? What are you, a rejected lover  ?!

However, he didn't lose his temper, and continued, “With your eyesight, it's no wonder your cultivation has had so many problems. Haven't you considered what kind of person I am? Do you really think I would have taken a handsome disciple only on the surface? Look closely, and you will see that he is much stronger than I am. Aren't you also interested in power? "

The Skinner finally fell into the trap. 

With a dreamy look, her attention shifted to Luo Binghe. Shen Qingqiu continued, “If you don't believe me, it's easy to control. Go and hit him on the head and you will see that I have not deceived you. "

Forgive me, protagonist. With this rope that blocks my spiritual energy, I can't do anything else.

Ning Yingying whispered, "Shi ... Shizun, you ....... you don't mean that, do you?"

This made him feel even more guilty, but he couldn't stop. Not now, when their lives were at stake, “Whether what I say is true or not, you will know once you try. Are you scared?" 

The Skinner wasn't afraid. She was about to hit Luo Binghe but a beam in the ceiling collapsed and hit her.

If Shen Qingqiu were still just a reader of  Proud Immortal Demigod Way , after this scene, he would have thrown down his cell phone and cursed the author until his next life.

The Skinner raised the beam and jumped to her feet.

"I knew it! You really are your mother's favorite son! She saved you! Killing you will be a pleasure! And without immortal weapons... "

Luo Binghe suddenly stepped up from behind and took the Xiu Ya sword that hung at her waist, pulling it out and cutting the immortal cord that bound Shen Qingqiu.

Shen Qingqiu did not hesitate: for the first time, he used his spiritual power to kill, but without any regrets. He did not know that Luo Binghe's worldview was changing. 

The boy had always considered pretty things as an extravagance of the rich, a glitter superficial without value.

But now, watching his Shizun fight, the first thing he thought was  Beautiful

That day, Luo Binghe learned that beauty was power. And Shen Qingqiu was the most powerful of all.

Demons. 

Obviously, there were also them, along with gorgons, harpies, and nymphs. Indeed, the problems of building that world were so many that it would take Shen Qingqiu a lifetime to explain them all.

Sha Hualing stared at him with an indecipherable expression as she said, "My purpose to climb this mountain was not to fight. I just wanted to compete with the skills of the Cang Qiong Mountain sect. I guess I was lucky enough to meet the owner of the sword Xiu Ya, Elder Shen Qingqiu. I've heard a lot about your abilities, a mighty demigod… too bad you haven't been claimed."

Shen Qingqiu did not respond to the provocation, "What conclusions have you drawn so far?"

The demon smiled.

“I don't dare to judge. I didn't see anything. For this reason, I have a proposal to make: why doesn't each of us choose three representatives and hold three fights? So, we will establish who is the most powerful, and my curiosity will be satisfied. Do you accept? "

Of course, he accepted! It was an important plot point! Two wives of Luo Binghe must have noticed the protagonist: Sha Hualing, the Saint Demon, the one who will betray her race to be with Luo Binghe, and Liu Mingyan, demigod daughter of Ares and sister of the Peak Lord of Bai Zhan Peak, so beautiful that having to cover yourself with a veil so as not to offend Aphrodite.

"Well. I will be the first. Who is my opponent? "

His opponent was a one-armed demon. In the novel, Shen Qingqiu used despicable tricks to win, in stark contrast to Luo Binghe's behavior in the last fight.

But things will be different here! He will not discredit his image in front of everyone!

“You only have one arm. Even If I triumph, it wouldn't be an honest win. "

"So what do you want to do?" 

Shen Qingqiu smiled, "I will fight without using my hands."

Once these words were said, everyone was in turmoil. Was it possible to fight without hands?

“Okay - the demon agreed - but you won't have to talk. Your tongue is more dangerous than Xiu Ya. " 

Shen Qingqiu raised an eyebrow. What did he mean by  your tongue is more dangerous than Xiu Ya?  Was he really that afraid of Shen Qingqiu's insults? What kind of reputation did he have in the demon realm?

"I promise. I will not speak."

The demon looked satisfied. Sha Hualing had a similar expression, convinced that victory was within reach.

Unfortunately for them, Shen Qingqiu disregarded their hopes, effectively fought without using his hands, using a seal on Xiu Ya to manipulate the sword, fierce and elegant at the same time, admired by the disciples and feared by the demons.

In a short time, he won the first match. By now on the ground, the old demon complained, "I lost ... I don't know what is worse ... that he actually defeated me without using his hands ... or that one of  her  sons beat me."

What the hell did my mother do that all demons hate her?

Shen Qingqiu looked at him without changing expression, "Let this be a lesson to you: Don't judge a demigod based on who his parent is."

"Binghe, this is just an illusion." 

But it was useless. The demigod was overwhelmed with negative emotions and had almost lost control, his breathing was unstable, and his eyes were red. 

If he wanted to get out of the Dream Demon illusion (boss of that part of the book where he shouldn't have been.  Where the hell did Ning Yingying go ?! ) Shen Qingqiu had to come up with something.

Scenes changed unpredictably: a little Luo Binghe begging his master to give his mother a bowl of congee to eat; Luo Binghe just entered Qing Jing Peak, with all his apprentice brothers who excluded him, a Luo Binghe struggling to wield a rusty ax, the loss of his precious jade pendant ...

These images made Luo Binghe unable to see or understand anything; there was only resentment, despair, pain, helplessness, anger, and other emotions that confused the mind of the young son of Tartarus. The only way to break the demon's spell was to resolve one's inner conflicts and accept the pain.

“Calm your heart! - he shouted - Don't attack the illusions! Hitting them will only hurt you!  Binghe! Stop!  "

Shen Qingqiu had already stood between the illusion and his disciple, ready to receive the attack, when something incredible happened: Luo Binghe had stopped!

Shen Qingqiu swallowed, “Binghe, none of this is real. Listen to this Shizun. Unravel the tangles of your heart.  Take back control.  "

The boy blinked, looked at his hands, and blanched, realizing what he was about to do.

“S-shizun? What ... what did this disciple do? "

"Nothing, Binghe."

"I was ... I was ..."

"You didn't hurt me- the cultivator interrupted him, because really, the last thing he wanted was to give the poor boy another trauma - You regained control and canceled the spell. This teacher couldn't be more proud of you. "

The illusions disappeared. The test had been passed. Luo Binghe's eyes were cast down in shame, and Shen Qingqiu raised his hand and touched him in a gesture that was intended to be comfortable.

"I wasn't strong enough ... this disciple was about to hurt Shizun."

"You didn't do it."

"But…"

"This teacher would have liked to have been impressed by you if it meant helping you."

Luo Binghe raised his head. The demigod had an intense look, like she just made a big decision. 

Suddenly, a voice rang out in the valley, "Interesting. This brat was actually able to break this old man's spell. Although not alone ... your master uses the same tricks as his mother."

"Is this elder the Dream Demon?"

The voice replied, “You were able, demigod. But now you have to step aside. I need to talk to this guy alone. So ... fall asleep."

Suddenly, Shen Qingqiu felt his head heavy and collapsed to the ground. The last thing he heard was, "You should never trust the children of this goddess, boy ..."

Shen Qingqiu was happy to see the birth of the relationship between Liu Mingyan and Luo Binghe. 

They were his OTP! He was fond of Ning Ying Ying, but the chemistry between Ares' daughter and Luo Binghe was legendary. No other wife was like her. 

In PIDW, Binghe admitted that if he ever had to take a queen, he would choose Liu Mingyan. He respected and feared her. And that was right, she was one of Binghe's strongest wife, including Sha Hualing. No one dared to say anything against her or challenge Liu Mingyan. 

"You are more beautiful than her, " Qi Qingqi said. 

Shen Qingqiu looked away from the cute couple and looked at the woman, "What did you say?"

"You are more beautiful than Liu Mingyan - Qi Qingqi repeated - So, stop staring at her like you want to rip her face off."

"I didn't want...why..."

Qi Qingqi snorted, "I'm not blind, I see how you look at her. You can't help it, it's in your nature to envy those who are younger and more beautiful than you. That's why I have to assure you that she is not your rival."

What the hell was going on? Why had he given that impression?

"There is a misunderstanding. Your disciple is obviously more beautiful than me. Otherwise, why should she wear the veil?"

"Whose fault do you think it is?"

"What?"

"You are a decent person, Qingqiu - the woman continued - If someone had told me long ago, I probably would have laughed. But you turned out to be better than I expected. But you are still  her son , and we know that demigods often inherit fatal defects from their parents. I don’t want Mingyan to get involved in your existential drama or losing the least bit of her freedom."

"I would never hurt her."

 "You can't know. Remember what happened to Psyche." 

"What does Psyche have to do with it?" 

"She too was too beautiful."

"But..."

"I don't want another Psyche. You have nothing to envy Mingyan - Qi Qingqi interrupted him again - Don't be dramatic like your mother and accept it. I'm sure your disciple agrees with me."

"What..."

"We have arrived. Make yourself presentable and stop staring at those two like a jealous lover. We have more important things to do today." 

Only Shen Qingqiu didn’t understand anything about what had happened?

After Binghe fell into Tartarus, there was a person he was to meet. The peak lord of An Ding Peak, Shang Qinghua.

Shang Qinghua deserved to be beaten.

Not only because he was a traitor and collaborated with demons, but also because he was Airplane Towards the Sky! 

Shen Qingqiu hit him on the head with his fan. 

“Unfilled plot holes! Meaningless crossover! What are the Greek gods doing in ancient China, huh? Why so many demigods? Here we are not in the West! It makes no sense that there are foreign gods! And you blatantly stole characters from Rick Riordan! Tell me, don't you feel a minimum of shame?! "

The other whimpered, "I'm a victim too. I was reborn as the most stupid and hated son of Athena ever! My mother is ashamed of me and my brothers refuse to acknowledge that I am related to them! "

"And they're right!"

"Brother, have mercy."

“You created this whole mess! And you haven't even explained to me what the Greek gods do in a cultivation novel! "

“Readers wanted the crossover! - Shang Qinghua justified himself - I have been under a lot of pressure! I didn't want to write it, but then a fan noticed certain things… theories were born… and immediately I was overwhelmed with messages… and before I knew it, I wrote the crossover! "

“This does not justify your lack of logic! You also put the demons in addition to the Greek monsters! "

“It was my original idea! What was I supposed to do? Give up on Mobei-Jun and the others? And then you were the only one complaining Cucumber-bro! "

"Everyone else was too busy with your poor sex scenes to notice that there was no logic!" 

"It's not true!"

"That's it and you know it!"

 "Ok, maybe you're right. But it is a novel to satisfy male fantasies, what did you expect? " 

"I wanted quality!"

 "Brother cucumber, be more understanding with me!" 

"No!" 

"Your mother…"

“Don't start too! Everyone has been talking about it since I arrived. Is it possible to know who he is? " 

Shang Qinghua looked confused, "You ... you don't know?"

 “I'm not obsessed like Shen Qingqiu - he reasonably explained - I've never thought about it too much. But the demons seem to know. Liu Qingge as well. Even Ning Yingying. How is this possible if it is not… that is, if I have never been claimed? "

"There was no need. It was obvious! "

 "How?" 

"Haven't you ever noticed how people obey you without batting an eye?"

 "I'm a Peak Lord, that's normal." 

"Yes, but ... did you notice their eyes?" 

"Their eyes?"

"What were they like? Did you ever notice?" 

Shen Qingqiu thought about it. No, he never did. He was too busy doing his duties to watch his disciples as they went about the chores he had assigned him.

Shang Qinghua interpreted his silence as an invitation to continue, “And beyond that… have you ever seen yourself in the mirror? And the smell of myrtle? The strange plants growing outside your house? And your sensitivity to the emotions of others? "

"So? Be clear. "

"Brother, your mother is ..."

He fell silent.

"My mother?"

Silence.

"Hey, what's up?"

 Shang Qinghua made frantic gestures, totally incomprehensible.

"Have you gone mute?"

The other nodded.

"How ... wait, my mother took your voice off?"

Shang Qinghua nodded again. Shen Qingqiu rubbed his eyes, "You have created a plot hole so large that even the System cannot fill it! Idiots!" 

 

 

[ + 1 ]

 

 

Too soon. What the hell was going on ?! 

Why was the plot so messed up? Luo Binghe shouldn't have re-emerged from Tartarus for another two years!

But here he is, ready to rip Shen Qingqiu's limbs off and make him suffer in a filthy prison for the rest of his life!

And he had also been accused of collaborating with demons!

What the fuck!

At least, that woman wasn't here yet. Perhaps, there were possibilities of salvation.

"Shen Jiu?"

His blood ran cold. Fuck. It was over. Qiu Haitang had arrived.

In the original work, her arrival meant only one thing: Shen Qingqiu's complete fall from grace.

A future member of the main character's harem, this beautiful mortal maiden had been engaged to Shen Qingqiu in the past! 

Qiu Haitang became a Hunter after Shen Qingqiu exterminated her clan and burned her home! She obviously hated him. And she was the witness who would reveal all his crimes. 

"No wonder I didn't find you - the young woman said, adjusting her white chiton soiled with earth - For all these years you, a worthless bastard and son of who knows what lesser divinity ... you have become an immortal cultivator." 

Out of the corner of his eye, he saw Luo Binghe shudder. Could he also want to join in Qiu Haitang's insults? 

"Qingqiu, you and this young lady ... is she an old acquaintance of yours?" Yue Qingyuan whispered to him. 

“Old acquaintances? Is that so? Am I just that for you? After all the love I gave you... if you want the truth, this man was my fiancé. And he's the reason I joined the Hunters of the divine Artemis - explained Qiu Haitang, eyes fixed on him - This person is a beast in human form, a perjury and a criminal! In my family he was only a slave, a child so slimy that his own father sold him, he was so disgusted by him! When he was fifteen, my parents died, and my older brother became the head of the family. Brother stripped him of the title of slave and regarded him as an adoptive brother. We got engaged after getting permission from him. And he… do you know how he paid us back? He killed my brothers, my uncles… and set our house on fire! If the divine Artemis hadn't found me... "

A sigh escaped her. Shen Qingqiu felt uncomfortable. 

I'm sorry for you but I'm not the real Shen Qingqiu! I haven't done all of this !

But he couldn't tell. Anything that now comes out of his mouth will be considered a feeble attempt to defend himself. 

“Beast… you are a beast… even your godly parent knows it! She never claimed you, and do you know why? You are not even worthy of the attention of a minor deity! Who would want his name to be tainted by such a child? You are a…"

She stopped, her eyes widening.

"No, it's not possible…"

There was a general gasp. Everyone stared at Shen Qingqiu with their mouths open, as if it were a firework that just went off. Then he realized he was surrounded by a reddish glow.

"What happens?"

Yue Qingyuan was the first to speak, "Your mother ..."

Was Shen Qingqiu claimed?! He raised his head, but there was no symbol. When Shen Qingqiu lowered it, he almost choked on his saliva. His clothes had disappeared, replaced by a white chiton with red fringes that barely covered his crotch, gold-studded shoes, a red cloak that hung on his arm.

Shen Qingqiu's hair was braided into an intricate hairstyle with pearls and roses.

There was only one divinity who thus recognized his children ...

Aphrodite.

WTF? What happens? Aphrodite in Proud Immortal Demigon Way never recognized her son! She let him die, for heaven's sake! What kind of mother allows it? Why did she claim me now? Does she know how many people there are here ?

He wanted to die of shame, and tried to cover himself, but the cloak was too short and left his abdomen uncovered.

"Typical of Aphrodite," Liu Qingge commented, looking away from him. 

I know I'm being ridiculous, but at least have mercy on me shidi!

Luo Binghe was blushing. Was he so angry about it? Or did he hate that attention had shifted from his crimes to  this ?

Suddenly, Luo Binghe did an unexpected thing: he threw his top robe at Shen Qingqiu.

 "Cover-up, Shizun."  

Then, addressing the rest of the crowd, Luo Binghe said, "Huan Hua Palace will take Peak Lord Shen into custody to verify the charges against him. Until then, the Aphrodite's son will be in our prisons. "
