Summary: For a certain LoL competition, a certain online streamer famous for pissing people off was currently explaining and broadcasting it at the same time.

Streamer: This support, so trash.
Streamer: If that jungler was my teammate, I would already be idling at the fountain and playing piano for him by now.
Streamer: I recommend that this player go back and properly practice how to last hit.

Audience: What bullshit! If you’re any better, then you do it!
Streamer: I, your dad, really can do it.
Audience: Okokok 🙂 If you can do it then I’ll chop off my head so you can kick it.

A few months later, the LPL’s1 veteran pro team TTC announced a new mid laner. A boy with flashy blue hair appeared in front of the audience and played Zed to utter perfection, killing everyone he saw, causing all the female fans to begin toeing the line of infidelity.
During the MVP interview after the match, everyone held their breath and eagerly watched this newcomer.

Only to see the boy accept the microphone, smile and ask, “That water friend2 with the StarTV user ID ‘Suburb King 101,’ my team’s address is on the official website, when will you be mailing your head over?”


After a certain regular season match finished, the staff member went backstage to urge the team members to go onstage and conduct their interviews, only to see TTC’s new mid laner and jungler standing in the corner.

TTC’s number one ace · jungler daddy Road pressed their team’s new mid laner Soft against the wall. He lowered his eyes and asked slowly, “In the interview later, do you know what to do?”

That quick-tempered mid laner, who had solidified his image as a troll3 in the audience’s eyes the very first time he went on stage, was currently blushing completely red. “I know. I won’t curse at anyone… I definitely won’t curse at anyone.”

Lu Boyuan4 (gong) x Jian Rong5 (shou)

Translation Notes

  1. LPL: League of Legends Pro League, the top pro league for LoL in China. ^
  2. 水友: literally water friend, but used to refer to netizens commenting under the same post or the audience/fans of an online streamer (don’t really know an English equivalent, so I’ll leave it as water friends most of the time) ^
  3. 喷子: basically an internet troll or a hater ^
  4. 路/Road: The Lu in Lu Boyuan literally means road in Chinese, hence his LoL username. ^
  5. 茸/Rong: The Rong in Jian Rong’s name can mean soft and fluffy (especially of hair, which is fitting because Jian Rong’s hair is soft and fluffy, and so is Jian Rong deep inside). This could be why his LoL username is Soft, but it’s unclear. ^

    Hi Tiny Salt,
    I’m Gamelli. I was just reading a part of “I Can Do It” and felt that the story was so cute that it made me interested and curious about the continuation of their meeting. So, I’m here to ask your permission to re-translate into Indonesian and post it on global.foxaholic, if you don’t mind. Of course I will add a link for your translation.
    Thank you for your attention and I’ll be waiting for your reply ^^

    1. Hello! Thank you for your interest in ICDI, and I’m glad you’re enjoying the novel! As for the retranslation request, after some consideration, as a team we’ve decided that we’re not completely comfortable with the idea of someone translating off of a translation. Personally, I think a lot of the nuances of the original text would be lost even more with a retranslation, since there are already parts of the text that I can’t fully capture when translating from Chinese to English.

      I hope you can understand!

    I am extremely grateful for all the hard work you have gone into translating this novel. It was my first time reading a novel and I loved it immensely! The story is wonderful, well written, with well-crafted characters and a lot of really fun secondary characters. Thanks! Thank you really. I’m a manga translator to portuguese and I know how tiring and laborious translation can be, I can’t imagine how many pages this whole story went. Anyway, I just wanted to express my gratitude and as soon as I can I’ll give you a kofi!

    thanks a lot for the translation. bow for you. this novella is beautiful, I gladly put it into my heart. While reading, I experienced many different emotions and it’s wonderful. Thank you very much for the work you have done. I will reread it over and over again. If I were immortal, I would read this novel all the time. love is beautiful in all its manifestations, and Xiao Rong and God Lu are beautiful, I will miss them.

    Thank you so so much for the beautiful translation!
    I really enjoyed this novel, I’m sad to see it end… I’ll definetely re-read it in the future!

  7. I’ve already written a review for this novel over at Twitter, but I felt compelled to drop something here to express my appreciation. Thanks so much for your hard work! And I reiterate from my thread: humor isn’t always easy to translate, especially when punchlines are tied to niche cultural and linguistic contexts. “I Can Do It” in English triumphing to speak in the universal “language of funny” is no easy feat.

    Thanks so much for bringing us this story the best way you can 🙂
