MTIU Chapter 27

Cannon Fodder Movie Emperor - Lock Me Up

A movie crew oftentimes had their actors’ pictures captured in between the scene by media. The Shippers of He Gaoyi and Yue Tianhua took the raw pictures and added their own speculation about the real scene by themselves. To be exact, scrutinizing every possible sweet or romantic moment between the two.

No matter how much dissatisfaction He Gaoyi and Yue Tianhua felt toward this development, they had to swallow them all.

Due to the skewed direction of the current plot from the original one, that is, without Qin Siyuan acting as the cannon fodder to heat up their feelings, accordingly, the relationship between the two was about to fall to a freezing point right now.

In Wu Siyuan’s mind, however, based on his understanding of “relationship“, he didn’t think it was necessary to pay attention to their personal feelings.

His task required the two Protagonists to have fewer obstacles before they got together. In the plot, after Qin Siyuan was kicked out of the Entertainment circle, there was a lot of disagreement between the protagonist Gong and Shou. Yue Tianhua was facing difficulties caused by other cannon fodders in the crews, yet He Gaoyi could not stand beside him at the time, so a lot of misunderstanding ensued.

In this timeline, naturally, such obstacles and misunderstandings galore no longer had the chance to show up.

After the hype brought by the emerging CP Fans, the two were even forced to sell their romance for job hunting. What kind of Third-party would be stupid enough to insert themselves between the Gong and Shou?

Though, whether Liu Tianhe would be this Third-party soon, no one knew.

That being said, this guy had gone offline already. If he wished to maintain his reputation intact, presumably Liu Tianhe had to cease his contact with Yue Tianhua, or cut off their relationship thoroughly.

***

When Wu Siyuan checked the situation of the two protagonists in their current project, he found that the other actors didn’t have a good feeling toward them, apparently.

Even if the roles they had taken weren’t that much important, nevertheless, the fact that the two people gained the roles through the backdoor was somewhat…well. In addition, the above-board manner in which the Shippers of the two promote their existence was an annoyance in some sense.

When they recalled their dark history, of their revolting schemes prior, they couldn’t help but draw themselves further away from the two people, and even euphemistically spoke of satirizing words against them.

Some people posted some reveals on Weibo questioning their so-called relationship, or some gossip about their superficial love.

Nonetheless, the fans refused to believe it. They strongly advocate the slogan “Don’t be deceived by rumors!” everywhere. They preferred to wait for the official statement from their own Idols regarding the rumors.

Of course, there’s nothing He Gaoyi and Yue Tianhua could do aside from replying on their Weibo, insisting that there’s nothing wrong with their relationship.

Toward He Gaoyi’s real feelings, Yue Tianhua felt he couldn’t care less anymore. He himself didn’t want to be locked up with that guy any longer. He was tired of pretending to love each other even as a mere business in front of others.

However, he had no other choice but to do otherwise!

There was an apparent split in their relationship, and Yue Tianhua was fed up. The future possibility they once had imagined in this Entertainment Industry showed no sign of appearance.

Qin Siyuan relied on his family background to achieve his position today, so why couldn’t he be granted the same chance?

Obviously, they had a similar appearance, and even his own acting skill was not bad. No, in Yue Tianhua’s opinion it was clear that his own talent was better than Qin Siyuan’s.

But why did he have to fall into such a situation right now?

He should be able to trample Qin Siyuan under his feet as he pleased, and kicked him out of the Entertainment Industry in disgrace!

But why couldn’t he do so, and instead it was him who had to struggle on the fringes of the industry itself?

Somehow he thought that it shouldn’t be like this…

***

When a reporter came to confront them, Yue Tianhua and He Gaoyi hurriedly put on smiles, and speak to each other lovingly, despite the unwillingness to utter such words in their heart. They tried to appease their fans,

“There’s no need to worry about us. Don’t be disturbed by any rumors.”

Seeing this piece of news, Wu Siyuan silently praised them. He really liked this scene where the two people wholeheartedly wanted to break away but had to hug each other instead!

Unfortunately, the said loving period was short-lived. Before long, they were captured by paparazzi arguing on the side of the road.

To put the matter worse, some marketing accounts also posted a revelation, describing how the two had been at odds with each other for a long time already. They lied and kept being together for the sake of getting some roles. But actually, they were in a cold war and almost broken up long ago.

A video about the couple quarreling was uploaded afterward. They couldn’t hear the sound, but from the look of it, anyone could see they were in a fierce argument.

Some fans felt they were deceived and put down their mantle of CP fans with heartache.

At this time, Wu Siyuan quickly reacted, fulfilling his duty as the “Elder” in the group, to calm and stabilize the CP Fans’ emotions first, and then suggested his fellows wait for the Official clarification from their Idols.

He Gaoyi and Yue Tianhua’s Manager had been changed to new person. He was the one whom Wu Siyuan had placed beside them previously.

The Manager got Wu Siyuan’s order, and directly call He Gaoyi to lecture them,

“I don’t care if you dislike each other in private, it’s not my business whether the two of you break up or not, but you must behave well in front of others! Stop trying to do some scheme or strategy. For the two of you not being completely kicked out of the Entertainment Industry was thanks to Qin Yingdi‘s magnanimity for letting you off easy. Our Company has also willing to give you another chance, so just stay put and work honestly!”

He Gaoyi reacted, “We just had some trivial quarrels. We’ve made up now.”

“Hmph. If that’s the case, then it’s naturally the best.  Keep in mind, right now all of your job offers require the two of you to appear as one. Don’t add any more scandal for me to take care of. I will try to curb the previous hotsearch, and the two of you should go LIVE stream tonight to explain everything to your fans.”

Yue Tianhua could reply nothing aside from agreeing, “I understand.”

He Gaoyi glared at Yue Tianhua.

‘If it weren’t for this guy, I, this up-and-coming Actor before, won’t become what I am today!’

In the past, by following Qin Siyuan, he wouldn’t need to worry about resources. But look at him right now, even just to maintain one resource he had to bow down to others. And yet, Yue Tianhua actually dared to have a whimsical wish to leave him, heh, simply dreaming!

He Gaoyi had already conceived an idea of what he was going to do in tonight’s LIVE streaming.

***

On Wu Siyuan’s side, after receiving the report from He Gaoyi’s Manager, he emphasized,

“Alright. Just let them behave and work properly. There is no room for failure in tonight’s LIVE stream.”

The Manager promised he would keep an eye on the two of them and would immediately handle the undesirable hotsearch well.

Wu Siyuan was satisfied as he concluded, “Well, then please take care of it as you see fit.”

Therefore, after the hotsearch was suppressed, He Gaoyi and Yue Tianhua both announced that they would go LIVE tonight simultaneously.

This time, without Wu Siyuan’s help to push the post forward, most of the CP Fan group was aware of this development.

So in the evening, He Gaoyi and Yue Tianhua appeared on the LIVE broadcast channel together. Fans with keen eyes noticed the strange atmosphere between the two.

Especially Yue Tianhua, his “blushing ears” were still apparent to see.

The couple not only honestly disclosed to the fans “the truth” about their quarrel that day, but also apologized to everyone, for causing them unnecessary worries.

Fans were naturally delighted and began to send rewards and gifts through the LIVE streaming platforms one after another.

Wu Siyuan also took a peek at the LIVE broadcast. Using his secondary account as the Protagonists’ Senior Shipper, he threw several Rockets[1]rocket is the most expensive gift. In CN, gifting/rewarding methods ranged and are called differently based on how much money is charged to buy one. E.g, using Symbol Mine, Grenade, Deep Water … Continue reading for the couple directly.

[The two there, can you guys give us more fan service? XD]

Once the message along with the Rocket gifts thrown showed up on the Screen Bullets, the other fans quickly followed and demanded more sweet interaction.

Looking at how the Protagonist Gong and Protagonist Shou were forced to show their affection online, it really did look endearing and adorable. After all, in the original plot, outside the time spent used for misunderstanding, the scenes about them were actually romantic and worthy to be envied at.

The fans had accepted their explanation and let them go, but began to ask for more “sugar content“.

In this state, there was finally nothing wrong with their relationship anymore.

So after sending a few more Rockets, Wu Siyuan continued to send another request,

[Asking the Master to give us food, daily, Give us Mooore, Mooooawwr~!]

He Gaoyi gave his word immediately.

He had had this idea already in his mind. Moreover, he decided to open more LIVE Broadcast in the future. He used to disdain scrapping over what little money gained using this method, but after looking at the number of tonight’s rewards given by his fans, he thought doing a LIVE broadcast was actually a good idea.

Yue Tianhua just smile indulgently on the side, but got chilled inwardly.

‘I absolutely hate all of this!’

But, even then, he had no other way out…

Regardless of his real feelings, he could only cooperate obediently, until someone else was willing to cover him. Liu Tianhe once had been there, but now he couldn’t look forward to him.

As the audience, Wu Siyuan accurately spotted Yue Tianhua’s absentmindedness. Therefore, he added more Rocket to his gift and send another message,

[Yueyue seems to be quieter tonight, is he shy?]

He Gaoyi glanced at Yue Tianhua and pinched him hard from the blank spot of the camera. “Well, he’s a little tired today.”

The ambiguous answer caused the comment barrages to be full of “Ahhhhh“, and Wu Siyuan was finally able to retreat with peace of mind. He didn’t forget to ask his subordinate to specially order a hotsearch about their interaction tonight.

The more popular they become, the more they would be deprived of the choice to separate from each other!

***

Another good thing in the way of resolving the Protagonists’ crisis was that, fortunately, the scenes they needed to take in the filming crew had all been shot. They safely finished this one project.

Afterward, Wu Siyuan secretly helped them gain another contact, for them to receive several endorsements, naturally with them as a couple.

The endorsements given were not first-rate or even second-rated brands. Just like how their current D-rated celebrity status, the brand they received similarly followed their grade. However, all contracts were the same. There must be agreement and constraints, in the case of couple models, they must maintain their relationship during the contract period.

It’s simply adding another padlock to the already immaculately-locked relationship between the two.

Therefore, regardless of whether Yue Tianhua was still in love with He Gaoyi or not, he no longer dared to propose a separation.

Later, after taking a few more endorsements with a similar stipulation in the contract, they didn’t even have the guts to mess around anymore.

Their Manager also frequently warned them,

“You have become popular once more due to your CP Fans, so don’t mess around and make trouble.”

He Gaoyi and Yue Tianhua nodded their head repeatedly.

The two guys had also begun to live under one roof as they once did. Yet the more they shared their time and knew each other’s daily habits, the stronger they felt discontentment in their hearts.

***

On Wu Siyuan’s side, he couldn’t be more satisfied after his Love Variety Show wrapped its last episode.

When he was in a good mood, he quickly urged his subordinates to prepare the next show as soon as possible.

After all, he shouldered the Great Cause, namely, escorting the Protagonist Gong and Shou to the grand ending of their love, a.k.a, marriage, similarly, in the shortest time possible!

He shouldn’t let any blunder slip out from his side, and likewise, others must not make another trouble for him either.

In this way, Wu Siyuan didn’t merely put his attention on He Gaoyi and Yue Tianhua, but also on the adversaries of the two protagonists.

Once he found out that some people were actually about to scheme on the two of them, he didn’t hesitate to take immediate measures to take care of the incoming trouble.

It was so heartbreaking, to think that such attempts had affected He Gaoyi and Yue Tianhua to begin wondering if their popularity was deteriorating once more.

What worried Wu Siyuan even more so was that in fact, He Gaoyi was a mere LIVE streamer right now, yet he could still attract the aggro from a bunch of other internet celebrities.

That’s right, the online celebrities who were dabbling in lovers’ business to gain audiences, despised the two protagonists.

Originally, He Gaoyi and Yue Tianhua had a fan base of their own. However, once they devoted their time to being a LIVE streamer, not only did they snatch others’ places on the popular list, but also stole a group of fans from others.

There were finally some Anchors who directly and indirectly showed their animosity toward He Gaoyi and Yue Tianhua. More of them even started to roast the couple.

What they took as a basis was how previously the two guys had framed and schemed on Qin Siyuan. The matter later fermented and sprung into another new hotsearch.

Wu Siyuan first pondered about his next action, before finally deciding to express his stance on his Weibo:

[“Thank you for not brushing off the previous offense. It’s true that I had no intention to pardon their action, even so, I sincerely wish the two of them to eternally stay together until old age. Also, I really don’t want to be mentioned along with those twos’ names, so please, I wish I can be spared from being dragged into their affairs. Otherwise, I can’t help but feel upset.”]

Due to Qin Siyuan’s statement, his name was finally less mentioned when the netizens talked about He Gaoyi and Yue Tianhua. Though those who wanted to criticize Qin Siyuan’s move of denouncing the two people, of course, existed as well.

At any rate, he had gained what he intended to achieve, so Wu Siyuan was too lazy to deal with the rest.

He Gaoyi and Yue Tianhua’s CP Fans, however, had mixed feelings toward this Qin Siyuan. In the end, they simply chose to ignore Qin Siyuan’s Weibo completely.

After another no-good hotsearch about him, He Gaoyi started to restrain himself. His current status was not as good as before, and he was also not good at online fighting against those internet celebrities.

Time passed this way, and before they knew it, a new script was sent to He Gaoyi and Yue Tianhua. However, this time was not a silly sweet couple, but a pair of vicious supporting roles. For the sake of inheritance, the couple planned to kill their elder brother’s orphaned child and intended to hoard the inheritance by themselves.

Needless to say, He Gaoyi was displeased by such roles. He tried to throw a tantrum and complained to his Manager, but the said Manager merely pushed his glasses upward and savagely responded,

“Then, you can take days off in this period instead.”

When Wu Siyuan heard that eventually He Gaoyi and Yue Tianhua agreed to take on the roles given, he was so pleased that he directly gave a thumbs up for himself.

‘Good job, Myself!’
