MC dies in a car accident in modern day. She opens her eyes to the cultivation world. It doesn't take her much time to realise that she is inside this cultivation novel in the body of a cannon-fodder character who dies miserably in the hands of the FL. She decides to build a good relation with the FL. MC's O!Host body has a semi-waste wood attribute/ system. But after MC transmigrates, she gains the ability to understand and talk to plants and trees and flowers. But she still has poor spiritual qualifications and power. No one has ever seen, till date, someone who can actively converse with plants. She uses this to understand more about herbs and make pills to help FL. MC is a scaredy cat but does not run away.
The FL is pretty suspicious of this 180 degrees turn that MC takes since O!Host would often beat and bully FL. It takes MC risk her life and limb and almost die before FL accepts her. FL is the standard xianxia character. She is a rare double root thunder/ lightning/ Earth attribute. Strong, has the ghost of a spirit master in her beads (?), Makes enemies, fights enemies, goes to jungle/ death valley/ cultivation competition etc etc. FL slowly falls in love with MC. Starts to kiss her at night when no one is looking.
MC is a pharmacist. Using her skills to talk to plants to refine some really good pills. There is some secret about her spirit power too.
her mother dies while giving birth to her and her father hates her due to this reason.
even when her father and grandfather and brother show a doting attitude towards her once she goes back to O!Host's house, instead of outsting the concubine and her servants and her children to be the evil b***hes that they are, she continues to act as if she loves her step mother very much. This makes no sense because her father and brother have been to war which lasted almost 5 years and it's only when they return they realise that the O!Host/ MC has been missing for 5 years. So they know for sure that the concubine was responsible but without MC actually doing anything, they also cannot do anything. This makes no ****ing sense coz it's simply just extending the plot for no ****ing reason, and just bring in the usual family drama trope.
MC is cross-dressing as a girl. She comes from an all-military family which had never ever seen a girl. Her mother is the father's third wife who is not respected by the MIL. The father and his three sons listen to MIL. So MC and MC Mom have been forced to stay outside the head house like a mistress and a bastard-child despite being legally married. MC Mom wants MC to gain recognition from her father and forces her to cross-dress and join one of the worst military teams where rich sons go to only gain a name and not do much work.
However, ML and his team come for recruitments and even though MC is terrible, absolutely terrible, she is able to touch ML (with his acid hands) and goes off Scot free. So ML takes her in as curiosity.
MC is planning to drop out as soon as possible coz she hates working hard and keeps thinking - I am a girl, why should I work as hard as a man to gain physical strength?
But the absolute derision that others have against her, the way they insult her and humiliate her when she is unable to complete even 1% of the practices make her go so crazy mad that she pushes herself. It's amazing the way the author has shown MC's despair, the embarassment and the shame, the absolute helplessness she feels at the taunts and insults and then the anger and rage that fuels her and ultimately takes her up.
Oh and you will hate her family. They are ****ing weak loosers in my opinion. Her brothers are the first ones to realise she is a girl and suddenly feel very bro-like and try to recruit her into their own teams. Dad is the last one to realise and starts feeling bad. Her grandmother is an evil witch who should be burnt on stake. Enough said.
