After Becoming the Hero’s Ex-fiancée


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

Zheng Wan, the foremost beauty in the capital, has a powerful father who served in court as the Senior Grand Secretary and an aristocratic mother from the royal Langya Wang clan; she is the pampered noble lady who has proudly lived for sixteen years.

The story of a book,《Sword Sovereign》, unfolded in her dream—when she awoke, she realized that she was actually a character in that book.

The young beggar she slapped and rejected his marriage proposal was the hero of the book, he was destined to soar to immortality and become the peerless swordsman of both heaven and earth.

While she, Zheng Wan, was just a minor character—the abandoned fiancée whose family was about to be torn apart and eventually dies a miserable death.

Zheng Wan: …What else can I do?

Of course, that is to: praise him, flatter him, sweet-talk him, and become his admiring lapdog.


Cui Wang believed that in this life, there was only the way of the sword.

Until one day, he met a leisure-loving, labor-hating, vain and arrogant woman.

at this point I dont want the FL to fall to our ml. I just want her to survive and prevent her family’s impending doom in the hand of our ml.

in this story, our FL wasn’t the extremely smart FL because her choices of actions have flaws but these flaws is what spices things up.

... more>> as for the ml, his reason for wanting to wipe out the fl’s clan was invalidated in my own preference.

our FL here was the most beloved daughter with a very noble background, beauty, money, she had it all. And our ml, he doesn’t even had anything on him when he proposed to her, what do u freaking expect????? Our FL would welcome you wholeheartedly when she deserves the best? Come on! <<less

I MTL-ed everything.. why?

I like the MC and the ml. I understand their rationale and their actions because they are influenced with their surroundings, really no one is genuinely in the "wrong".

They are both soooooo troublesome and toxic though. Only until about 150 chapters in, , , close to the end, their relationship becomes more certain and clearer.

The MC is beaauuutiful, stunning, raised like a princess. Princess syndrome.
Which can be really annoying but the fact that she can suffer and work hard for her parents is amazing. (And anyway... more>> no one seems to care that she doesn't help out in like cleaning up corpses or helping others, other than the cannon fodders so honestly I was also annoyed that she takes everything for granted but I don't want to be a cannon fodder)

The ML practices Ruthless taoism? Or something that means that he cannot have any emotions, he has to throw away all "human" feelings to get stronger which is amazing!!! But... not for romance....

Anyway yeah super confusing super toxic but I still read it 😌 <<less

What is interesting about this is:

  1. FL is not a transmigrator, she essentially just gets a vision of the future (that she is a canon fodder character in a novel)
  2. FL does not go back in time, in fact, she gets her future premonition after things have already gone bad for her and she has thoroughly offended the ML.
  3. She doesn't just magically change her personality and become an angel - she still does bad and manipulative things.
  4. ML isn't instantly taken with her. He is not an idiot and can totally tell she is sus.
It's clearly going to take a while for the MCs to get together, but at least so far the FLs plots have been entertaining. The fact that both MCs are fairly flawed is an added bonus that makes... more>> things a bit more interesting. This isn't some grand masterpiece, but it's a decently amusing story that I am enjoying so far. <<less

The MC thinks that everyone is s*upid except herself. Cui Wang is a saint for all the things he experienced from MC. MC does not deserve Cui Wang at all. He never did anything wrong. The MC's family deserved what they got for despising less unfortunate people and being too ambitious. I'll still read it until the end though since I'm curious. The only thing the MC is good at is gaslighting people. For now, I give this novel a 1.

Like I don't get it. Am I supposed to... more>> feel bad for MC? When she's already toxic and greedy towards the ML? Is she gonna have a character development? Like whenever my heart hurts during scenes, its due to me cringing so hard because of MC's actions. <<less

i loved it. This story has my favorite trope: enemies to lovers, back to enemies and lovers again (?) I had to read the mtl version to finish and the ending is satisfying. There's no useless drama from outside parties, this story really focuses on both leads only, which I really like.

it's a really nice romance short read that made my heart ache a few time and felt annoyed, but also found myself laughing and smiling throughout.
