CD Author’s Afterword

Previous Chapter RWX’s Afterword

Afterword – By Author, ‘I Eat Tomatoes’

It’s over. Coiling Dragon is over. Don’t know what’s going on, but after writing this chapter, Tomatoes has a certain feeling, as though the story isn’t finished. As though there is much, much more left. Only, there isn’t much point to it…in the future, Linley and his family will go on various journeys. Linley will accept his disciple, ‘Clayweg’, then go visit and journey through the other, secondary cosmos. The machine intelligence cosmos, the bioform cosmos, the Immortal/Devil cosmos, and even the principal cosmos and the other cosmos.

Many of the eight great clans that later appeared within the ‘Linmeng’ cosmos were actually the original inhabitants of that cosmos.

Everyone should be able to tell by now, right?

Linley is the ‘Linmeng’ of Stellar Transformations, the second controller of the Hongmeng Grandmist. With a Grandmist body, he broke through the barriers of his cosmos and entered the Grandmist Space. Actually, the carvings of the Mountain of Exalted Celestials and some other things in Stellar Transformations were pointing to this long ago, haha.

Right. It’s all over.

Coiling Dragon is over.

Tomatoes currently feels quite torn, haha. This book has brought Tomatoes much joy, but also quite a few frustrations. But, in the end, it has made Tomatoes’ life more interesting. Most important of all has been everyone’s support, reading, bookmarking, etc. And of course, all of the monthly tickets you have been sending. Tomatoes feels very grateful to everyone.


It’s over. Coiling Dragon, more than three million characters long, is over. In the end, Grandpa Doehring didn’t come back to life.


Stellar Transformations and Coiling Dragon, to be more precise, make up the ‘Grandmist Duology’ which Tomatoes originally envisioned. And now, it’s all over…after having finished Coiling Dragon, Tomatoes really needs to take a good rest. Afterwards, Tomatoes will prepare to work on a new story. This new book is something which Tomatoes had already begun to formulate, even before writing the story ‘Inch of Radiance’, but never dared to actually start moving my pen.

That’s because the material for it is excellent. In the past, however, I felt my mastery over plot wasn’t good enough, but now, I feel…like it is about time.

This new book will be a more Eastern-type fantasy. It involves the most thought and plotting that Tomatoes has ever used.

But of course…for now, Tomatoes needs a good rest. To recover his energy! The plan is to have the first chapter of the new book be uploaded on July 28!

Whew, whew…it’s finished!

Tomatoes, here and now, would once more like to thank everyone for their year of support. Tomatoes bows in thanks…now, let us meet here on July 28, and once more embark, together, on a new, fantastical journey.


The night of June 11th.

  1. Thanks from the Leech…

    I have been following this translation for a LONG time.

    Did not join the forum even after the CD translation was finished. Even after joining did not post anything in weeks.

    Today this Leech says his thanks from the bottom of his heart!!

    Love your work.

  2. Wow. I started reading after getting hooked on the manhua, and while looking for the new chapters found this site… I’ve been reading a book a week and its been one of the best things I’ve ever done! I’m very satisfied with the ending, although I wish there was a little more expansion on Linley’s situation as a cosmos created :3. Thank you Tomato eater for the amazing novel and thanks to Rmx for translating, I love you both sincerely. Now… Time to read stellar transformations 🙂 (didn’t know they were in the same universe but now I guess I’m sorta reading it in chronological order is Linley becomes a grandmist body first???)

  3. Hey RMX,
    I know its been awhile since you’ve finished this series. I kinda want to reread the series again and I was wondering if you could add an epub or pdf version of the Coiling Dragon series. I only did a quick search and was able to find a epub version of the compete series online.

  4. Wow I really wish tomatoes did a bit more of a wrap up with the ending of the story instead of linley having a major bomb dropped on his head, either way… THANK YOU

  5. Thank you IET for the awesome story!! (cries). This is one of the best novels I’ve ever read. Looking forward to new stories from you. KUDOS!

    Also, Thank you RMX, if it weren’t for your awesome translation skills. I won’t be able to understand this story. hahaha.

    THANK YOU!!!

  6. Today is the marking of Steller Transformations end. Feeling quite emotional right now. It has been a long journey. Thanks I Eat Tomatoes.


  7. I was a bit late on the CD train ( i only started reading it after it finished ) but now that i’ve read it all i feel like i’ve just lost something important to me. ( i’ve grown way too attached to the characters) thankyou IET for writing this wonderful novel and thankyou RWX for allowing me and others to experience something we otherwise wouldn’t have been able to.

  8. This was truly a good book. but…. that ending where he suddenly transcends the cosmos out of nowhere…. leaves me feeling bitter. The entirety of the book was simply marvelous but that ending or those last 2 chapters were simply utter shit, not the translator’s fault at all but the author could have selected a better ending or a better reason for that particular ending…. like “Four way mutation and sovereign cultivation has a different energy source and draws power from the cosmos itself” but for him to actually draw power from the cosmos and then transcend the cosmos only to be a 2 of a kind which actually was 1 of a kind since the that Hongmeng created the cosmos to begin with was simply too much ….. author could have done way better with that ending.
