1st Kiss Was Intentional

Description

Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

When she came back to life, she became an extra in a novel. Living in the cruel emperor’s palace as a villainess concubine, her throat was cut because she tormented the heroine!

What should I do at this moment?

Get close to the heroine? No.

Get close to the male lead? No, not that either.

Survive to have long and fine life? Damn right, I will!

Three years have passed since she lived peacefully as an outsider of the Imperial City. As long as the novel ends with a happy ending, she thought she could be free.

“Who are you…”

“Servant.”

…What?

“I’ll listen to you.”

“Huh?”

“I’ll listen to whatever you say. Can we live together then?”

The servant who came into my easy life.

I live a happy life with him. Sometimes he’s a kind servant, and other times, a dear friend…The problem is, I can’t seem to take my eyes off him when he smiles saucily and flirtatiously with those red eyes.

…Is it because of my feelings?

Suitable to read if you have a lot of free time, are in love with the novel's tropes (oblivious, naive FL who's a social outcast; handsome enigmatic ML who's in power; ML falls in love first) and ready to turn your logic off

The setting is pretty standard. FL gets transmigrated into the body of a cannon fodder and is sent over to an emperor as a 30-ish concubine. She spends three years keeping her nose clean but then meets ML and catches his attention because he seems to be as amazed by her idiocy as I am she's funny and weird.

I think what's nice is that FL is a pleasant girl with goodwill towards other people, she's cute, clumsy and sweet. Ah, and I have a thing for 'nice social... more>> outcasts', and that's what FL is too.

But at the same time there are a lot of things which clearly show you shouldn't expect much from this novel in terms of sensibility, deep psychology, intrigue or anything of that sort.

For example:
Spoiler

FL mistakes ML for a servant simply based on a fact that he said so (and because she wasn't expecting anybody else). But! A man with a good posture and a sword, who behaves without any respect towards a noble concubine - and a servant? Come on, A NOBLE is written in Caps Lock on his forehead. It would make sense to mistake him at least for a knight, but all she does is 'ah, ok. Bring me a vase then'. Nothing hits her off.

Or her decision to take him in despite the apparent dangers she listed herself. The next moment - when he offers to become her bodyguard - she agrees without reflecting on how he's going to protect her if they can't be seen together. (And why can they not, if he's a servant?). It's not like it's totally illogic, it's just that FL the author doesn't even address this question.

Or the simple fact that the author entirely omitted the three-years part where a modern-age girl has to get accustomed to the loneliness of another world, tries to understand how she can get back, misses her home etc.

ML seemed to be okay before it turned out that he appointed a prince from a potentially antagonistic country as his substitute on condition that if everything's okay, his country will get its independence back. Something tells me that's not how politics work.

[collapse]

So, all in all it seems like all characters and the plot will bow down before the author's desire to create many trope-ish doki-doki moments. If you're willing to discard this fact, you may get a smile or two.

The translation is a bit off. The choice of words is sometimes weird, I dunno why. Feels as if it's corrected MTL. But still, the general outline is clear and everything is readable so it's okay. <<less

Confining yourself to avoid harem intrigue and eventual Death By Tyrant is a logical decision. But it's the only logical thought this girl has ever had. Every following thought and action is so completely devoid of reason and sense that plot armor is the only reason she isn't dead already ten times over. And this is only the seventh chapter.

She's the typical brainless Mary Sue stumbling her way through life. Literally stumbling, in one chapter she bumped into or tripped over something four times. The only reason I'd keep reading... more>> is to count the number of times she should have died or been ruined by her own idiocy only to be inexplicably saved by our poorly disguised male lead.

If this is your thing, more power to yo.u But I prefer a protagonist who is intelligent enough to at least walk unaided. <<less

You have to go directly to foxhole translation site to access the story, IT IS LOVELY!!!!! Only on chapter 15 sofar but I am adoring it. It is currently more of a relax read as the drama hasn't started going crazy. I truly understand the MCs position and her actions and personality are rational.

The translator did well and I appreciate the end of chapter commentary.

I like the FL a lot so far. She’s so funny but she also seems reasonable and a decently good thinker. ML is funny too though he’s a bit of a troll.

I’m hoping heroine-chan won’t be a green tea b— but I have a feeling she will be.

DISCLAIMER: Only skimmed the summary in spoiler thread.

I read this for the "Villainess Noble Girls" tag so I was expecting this to be a genuine villainess build-up (personality or character-wise) but aside from being mentioned to have bullied the original heroine in the original story, MC looks more like a side character than a villainess one; she neither has awful personality or gifted with great resources *cough* status and richness. This could literally be just about a humble heroine entering the imperial harem and falling in love with the emperor... more>> and no one would match her with a villainess. So was a bit disappointed.

The only thing that save this story is the sweet and cute romance between the MC and ML. It just melts your heart so long as you are fine or ignore that ML is a cold-blooded tyrant originally. 👀 If it's just this aspect I would rate 5/5.

However, I just didn't like the miscellaneous details of the world building such as an emperor having no empress, then again it could explain why the inner chamber and the first party is chaotic (if you read too much imperial harem stories then you know, I don't wanna go fool nerd mode here). Then the politics side, ngl for a moment:

Spoiler

when they were explaining his history, I didn't know if I should hate or pity the old emperor? Like he's sh*t for treating his son but dude did get fooled in thinking it's his child. 🤣 The summary never mentioned how he got fooled -I mean there's many eyes in the palace how could he not know his wife was never pregnant? Moreover, unless wife has strong background, it should be easy to disown him irrelevant of whether he is his biological son or not, he's an emperor he doesn't really need any rules to tell him what to do.

Honestly, I don't know how people could forgive ML for being blood thirsty but hate the dad for that? Like probably if he didn't do it the only difference would be which corpse would be taken lol.

[collapse]

I also don't like how it wrapped things up, It goes beyond the limit of what I can stomach or pretend not to understand regarding the overall situation of things.

There are other stuff I don't like such as MC's character (become this very nervous wreck that can't do anything right before the Emperor because content. And many more. Honestly it's only romance that pulled this.

So if you are here for the romance only and can stomach some poor world building then this is for you otherwise skip this novel. <<less
