When the magic knight Nyze traveled into the Demon Realm, it was to do battle against that greatest and most vile of enemies, the Demon Lord. But when the misogynistic Hero tried to sideline her, Nyze rebelled... and quickly discovered the Demon Lord isn't what she thought. Nyze began to question everything she believed, and found love in the arms of another girl.
Yes, the mighty Demon Lord successfully conquered her heart. Next step: conquering the entire world! The time has come for the most powerful disaster lesbian to visit disaster upon mankind!
The author has a great grasp on linguistics and makes a surprisingly interesting story given the main theme. Id say in the LGBTQ+ focused stories this one ranks at S tier. I was thoroughly entertained and look forward to more chapters.
I had seen this story a while ago. While looking through transgender girls love stories, this was among the top results flagged with both "transgender" and "girls love", but initially I had given it a pass. As of a couple days ago, I finally decided to give in and give it a read.I was not prepared for one of the single funniest stories on this site, and having perused and read several dozen stories on Scribblehub by this point I feel reasonably confident in making that assessment. The characters are amusing and enjoyable, the oppressive nature of the Church is a darkly believable threat, and the absurdly left-wing nature of demon culture is an utter delight to read. And absolutely all of that pales compared to Gary, who is perhaps my single favorite character in any piece of media I have ever read. Speaking as someone who is gendervoid and feels rather disconnected from gendered concepts entirely, the idea of being a sapient ball of mathematics with a deeply unpleasant voice best explained through feeding unpleasant metaphors through a meat grinder meet-and-greet is oddly appealing, and the absurd metaphors the author comes up with to describe just how teeth-gratingly off-putting Gary's voice is are hilarious to read, every single time. The same wordsmithery continues throughout the story, producing utterly delightful analogies throughout. Well done, Lyric, you've officially claimed a spot among my favorite authors on this site. I cannot wait to see what you make next.
The affirmational transformation is delightful.
I really liked how the author did the magic system and how they did the whole transformation of various characters throughout the story.
I rather enjoyed how the author flipped the traditional setting of a demon lord being evil into something that is... Well... Great! While yes the "church being evil" is an well known and done trope, I liked how in this story it focused on other aspects that are not usually seen in stories like these such as focus on traditional role/gender stuff and all of that. So it gave to me a fresh spin on that trope (its a trope for a reason! (It's a good trope imo)).
This has been a truly amazing story deserving of five stars, by a very LGBT author who reaches great levels on all metrics.... I mean, I am a friend, who does occasionally proofread, but I would not call my starting sentence biased by any measure.
Firstly, the English. As I said, I sometimes proof-read, and whether I'm doing that or reading the published version, I am impressed by the general grasp of language and style which the author has. The grammar is all-around solid, and she also takes into consideration items such as differing modes of speech for her characters. Overall, there are no faults.
In terms of plot, it's doing what it says on the tin: the lesbian demon lord seems pretty intent on conquering the world, in her own way. This is not a series which is focused around grand battles and such like that - indeed, the original idea for the story was nowhere near that. Instead, the focus is on the development of characters as they progress for their aims and for their happiness - often with an LGBT twist. It has not aimed for deep, depressing darkness, but can put forth seriousness where desired, while frequently maintaining a more light-hearted tone. I enjoy the story with each and every chapter.
In terms of characters, the titular one is not the MC, 'tis true. I would call this a more ensemble cast, wherein the MC is one of the more prominent voices within it. I must commend the author for the variety of characters and perspectives offered, none of which are offputting. The interactions between them are frequently a highlight, a major source of the joy in reading this story.
I would like to make a brief note worldbuilding. While the story does not seek to drown you in worldbuilding, it displays enough which is evident and different from mainstream stories that the reader can believe they are experiencing a different world. The demon realm in particular is a highlight. I would truly call it well-done.
This story is highly recommended for anyone interested in LGBT and fantasy stories. In addition, if you are simply interested in an overall fun read, I would definitely suggest you try this out.
All in all, I would, with an unbiased view, give this five stars and a round of applause.
An absolutely amazing story, written in a very entertaining and interesting style! The characters and setting feel very fleshed out and the plot progression is mixed with some really lovely slice-of-life bits. This is easily one of my favorite stories I am currently reading and I'm eagerly looking forward to more ^_^
