After the Disabled God of War Became My Concubine

Description

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

According to popular legend, the war god of Da Liang Huo Wujiu was once captured by the enemy country. His meridians were severed and both his legs broken before he was thrown into prison. In order to humiliate him, that dissolute ruler even gifted him to his cutsleeve brother as a concubine.

General Huo suffered a great deal of humiliation and insult. He bided his time for three years before the cicada shed his skin and he escaped back to Da Jing. After treating his crippled legs, he led his army in three months to storm the enemy’s capital, slaughter its emperor, raze its capital, and finally beheaded that garbage cutsleeve, hanging his head on the city walls for three whole years.

Since then, the world has been united.

——

Jiang Suizhou, a history department graduate advisor at a certain university, received a dissertation which used these unofficial histories of Huo Wujiu as their basis, and criticized the student to no end.

When he opened his eyes again, he had transmigrated into that cutsleeve prince from the stories.

There were lanterns and colorful decorations everywhere. A servant came, sending word that the disabled general of the enemy state had already entered the prince’s manor in his wedding sedan.

Facing down General Huo, who had been tortured to the verge of death, dressed in red wedding clothes, glaring balefully, Jiang Suizhou only then knew – these wild stories could also come true.

And cause him to be beheaded for public display, his head hung on the city walls for three years.

Jiang Suizhou’s only option was to provide for General Huo well.

The overt and covert attacks of the imperial court, the witless ruler’s every possible humiliations — he grit his teeth and absorbed it all, all in the hopes that in three years time, he could but keep this head of his.

Of course, he didn’t dare to even dream of asking this 9 ci* tall “concubine” to actually serve him.

However, before the three years was up, General Huo’s legs actually healed on their own.

Not only did he slaughter the useless ruler and unified the country, but he also forcefully blocked him in the room and insisted on fulfilling his duty as “concubine.”

I'm enjoying this novel a lot so far! There's a good balance in the characterization, I think, where the MC isn't too OP or too ridiculous like some transfiguration novels can get. The translation is.... odd in places, though, and often has me going "is this edited MTL?"

For example, they call the MC "King" when he should be a Prince (or possibly a Duke) since he's the brother of the Emperor. I suspected it was a bad translation of 王爷, which sure enough it was. Another part that stuck out... more>> to me as very odd was the MC supposedly writing down the parts he found important in a conversation when it was a talk happening over a meal- and sure enough, the CN says 极了下来,which goog translates as write down but also means (and more importantly, contextually means), just to note the important bits (i.e. making a mental note to oneself). This does make the constant patreon adverts at the end of every chapter much less savory for me, but does explain to me how they can claim to have up to 24 "advance" chapters available to Patreon subscribers. I think I'd be less annoyed with the adverts if there was a break between the text of the chap and the advert, but there is none usually and the text just continues to the advertis**ent.

Anyway, this is just to say- if you are reading the translation perhaps take it with a grain more salt than you typically would (or should) as to the definitivity of the text. Since there are definitely some glaring issues I see that go beyond differences in translator interpretation. <<less

Got some high potential alone for the translator's HQ translation.

First chapter immerses the reader immediately with no drags, MC realizes his dilemma in a non obnoxious way that I'm used to from shoujo & jousei WN/LNs. The protagonist got emotions, but is rational and calm enough to know how to act according to the script.

Looking forward to see the rest!

Edit: Finished it via MTL; the story doesn't let you down, absolutely met my expectations and had surprisingly a lot of comedic moments. The length might be a bit short for... more>> some, but none of it was rushed or stuffed with filler. Highly recommend!

Spoiler

Huge kudos to the author for making the relationship not utterly based on misunderstandings, when it's more than likely to happen in 8/10 transmigration-into-cannon-fodder novels where kissing up to MCs is your only chance for survival.
MC was upfront about his motives and never tried to manipulate the other's emotions. He does that also to other side characters, a very commendable deed imo.

I want to read this but considering this translator always numbers chapters wrong - as in, just splits them up into several parts and calls those parts by the chapter numbers instead - I'm not sure how far along the translation actually, truly is. As such, I don't want to touch this until it's either finished or well beyond 200 chapters or something. I imagine in the end the chapter count will be more than quadruple of whatever amount of chapters it's supposed to have in reality.

I mtled this novel. It's pretty short at around 130ish chapters. The dynamic between the 2 male leads is good. The development between them didn't feel forced nor does the supposed "gong" feel too overbearing.

For its length the novel was paced out pretty well and you could easily binge this in one sitting if you're fast. I suggest bookmarking this if you want to read everything in one go.

Onto some spoiler territory but I really liked how the Protagonist acted here. He isn't a pushover nor does he overly rely... more>> on the ML. His actions make perfect sense and is rooted in his setting that he came from the modern age and is a history teacher.

I also love how the protagonists illness and the ML's injury was not so easily solved and discarded to the side. I liked how the development was taken in a nice and neat pace.

Overall good novel. Pick it up if you're looking for something nice and short to read. <<less

Ngl I’m not really a fan of this growing trend by translators to hold chapters hostage until they get money. A donation out of good will is one thing and I’m happy to do, but a single chapter split into multiple parts and then demanding money to ‘access’ them otherwise only uploading a single part which is ONE scene on a random schedule is just ughhhh it’s like being forced to watch constant ads on a YouTube video you can’t skip.

My joy for this novel has fallen to complete depths,... more>> because each ‘chapter’ is basically a single conversation or scene and then a jarring stop in the middle.

And the worst part is that this was done deliberately in this last arc. As soon as the MC and ML relationship was confirmed, the translator completely changed their schedule and is dragging it out so more people get desperate and give money. Like those mobile games that play on human emotions and lock items so a player hits a sudden barrier and ends up spending money ‘because it’s just a few dollars that’s all’. <<less

I personally like Huo Wujiu (ML). He is arrogant and domineering but in front of the person he loves, he'll be cautious and gentle. What I like the most about him is the way he expressed his position and love for MC. In front of the all the court officials and ministers he directly said he will be the queen. Same goes for the modern era, he confessed in front of MC's father that he is chasing MC. F***! That's so cool!

He is my favourite character. I don't really know how to express in what ways I like his character and personality but anyway I just like him. The MC is also cute and smart. They are a good match.

I like the side cp too. (Nie Cong X Lou Wanjun)

and it was just an entertaining read overall.

My only complaints
Spoiler

The s*xual relationship between the leads made me uncomfortable. If your bottom genuinely doesn't enjoy having s*x with you, you're doing s*x wrong. And this one is more personal but I kept expecting it to come full circle with the beginning. It's fine that it didn't but I'm just a little disappointed.

You might need to know about the translation... "sleepy translations" is screwing up the chapters. I started to read when it showed chapter 71 but later realized it is only about chapter 40 in the raws. The translation is edited MTL and "ok".

About the Story... MC is a transmigrated history teacher and stumble in a palace drama. ML is a prisoner of war, married to MC to humiliate both of them. But instead of fighting against each other they join forces and play a dangerous hand to win it... more>> all.

The story is a feel good story and has no too large up and downs. The communication and relationship between MC and ML was good. They were kind of honest to each other.

I still think that the side character were a bit forgotten. Especially MCs "concubines" could have been more important.

I recommend to read it at least once. I might reread this at a later point. <<less

4.25/5

5/5 for the first 70 chapters or so

First let me just say I absolutely love Liu Gou Hua's prose, but I personally thought that her two most popular novels (this one and I became the brother of the angsty novel's female protagonist) started off very strong and petered out towards the end.

The main protag, a history prof and geek, blows his fuse when his student hand in a dissertation about the secret life of Huo Wujiu being captured and forced to become a concubine to Great Liang's prince. Then he... more>> transmigrates back in time and immediately finds out... that it was true! But that's not all... as the prince of a collapsing dynasty, he also has to deal with the antics of his power-hungry uncle-in-law and his idiotic hothead brother of an emperor. But THAT's not all... when he gets to his residence, he also has to deal with not one but TWO male concubines left behind by OG prince (and their household tussles with his shiny new concubine)

Spoiler

they're actually just advisors installed there as "concubines" but one of them really likes to play up the drama

[collapse]

Of course, Jiang Suizhou doesn't want to die so he's very good to Huo Wujiu, but he has to be very discreet about it because the emperor, his brother, wants to see him torture this general (and be tortured, they kinda hate each other). He also has to make sure he survives in court long enough for Huo Wujiu to escape and conquer Great Jing. Each one of his actions is measured and logical (until the end) and this makes a lot of sense because he's a history professor in present time who has enough knowledge of this time period to make calculated decisions. Of course, Huo Wujiu begins to pick up on the subtle ways Jiang Suizhou helps/cares for/protects him and his natural conclusion is... that Jiang Suizhou is in love with him :)

The politics aren't very complicated or meticulously planned out. It's a pretty linear plot. There aren't any big twists. The emperor is brainless and vindictive, the uncle is greedy and corrupt, the court officials are disheartened but helpless -- all very typical of an end-of-dynasty period. I find this ok when the focus is mostly on the development of heartwarming power couple, from when they begin to form good impressions of each other to when they're the first thing on each other's minds to when they put their lives on the line for the other. BUT, it really bothered me towards the later chapters when the author brings in new characters from Great Liang and shifts away the focus from the main characters and concubines.
Spoiler

The conflict between Huo Wujiu and his clan (esp. his cousin) was resolved too quickly and not believably enough for my liking.

[collapse]

Oh and you'll find Jiang Suizhou's eunuch either really cute or really annoying.

It's HE and there are extras in present day.

Spoiler

Jiang Suizhou returns to being a prof and Huo Wujiu is reborn as a college student

I'm reading the raws as of now and I'm liking this a lot better than How to survive as a villain. This is how you do misunderstandings right.

I'm actually amazed at how much I like this and how I'm able to continue reading it in Chinese without getting bored and tired of my slow reading speed and jumping to another novel.

Both MC and ML share a quiet comradeship and it's sweet and wonderfully aggravating to see them start to catch feelings for each other and yet be unaware of what's... more>> going on. I like how MC starts to like ML too when ML falls for him, compared to most stories where the MC remains oblivious for a long time and has to be coerced by the author to fall for the ML.

Also, regarding the ML. He has more character than your forgettable, typical stoic and cold male lead who warms up to the MC. He's every bit the upstanding, proud general with an indomitable spirit despite his disability, is revealed to be rather wild as a child, and is adorable when he starts mincing his words out of jealousy.

Never once does he give the feeling like he's a lesser person after his disability. The way he helps the MC is positively swoon worthy.

The plot's pacing is steady yet will keep you interested in what happens next. But the best part is the relationship development, which is refreshing to read as for once you'll be shown how both parties become aware of their feelings for each other slowly instead of one huge last minute realisation.

I really hope this gets a complete translation so readers who can't understand Chinese can read it as it's that good. <<less

a good novel

MC (shou) is a young history teacher,
he finds himself in the past as the emperor's unloved brother
the only way he has to survive and pass himself off as gay
so weak and gay he can't claim the throne and have heirs...
He's very beautiful
kind and sweet
he decides to change the fate of this body by treating ML kindly

ML is a good general
son of a traitorous general who took the throne
he finds himself caught,
tortured,
broken legs,
and given... more>> to the gay MC,
a humiliation for both...

he finally realizes that he loves MC
because MC is beautiful
but above all he has a pure heart and eyes
yet it is MC who tells him that he loves her (chapter 93)

it was very slow but very cute
revenge is too slow
it could have been much faster
much stronger
especially revenge against their brothers...

it's also sad that we don't see the end of MC's two false concubines
they were great
the end was too abrupt
one more extra would have been better to conclude

thanks to the author
thanks to the translator <<less

Historical drama~ Lots of fun! Definitely highly recommended. Love it for the characters but the political intrigue was also pretty interesting.

CHARACTERS: 4/5

Ahhh the characters are well done here! I just finished reading a novel with loads of low-IQ cannon fodder that only know how to make drama 😖 so this was a breath of fresh air! It’s unfortunate that some of the characters I liked weren’t highlighted as much tho!

... more>> Jiang Suizhou (MC) :

The MC is a proffesor that teaches history! At the start of the story, he finds himself transmigrated after scolding one of his students for daring to present a legend for history as one of his projects. His transmigrated role happens to be the main villain of that student’s report, Jingwang, who is an infamous cutsleeve prince.

  • Minor Spoilers:
    Spoiler

    King Jing or Jingwang has an especially calm temperament. At first, he’s more aggressive because he has to play the act of this cold but bullied prince that’s being made a laughing stock of in court. It makes the ML think that he’s a bit of a tsundere LOLOL. But he’s actually both a little bunny inside and outside!

    [collapse]
Huo Wujiu (ML) :

A famous general with lots of legends to his name. At one point in history, his legs were purposefully crippled and he was sent away to be humiliated by being married to the enemy faction’s prince. He never lost his pride though!

  • Minor Spoilers:
    Spoiler

    He’s the cold and ruthless type! But he’s actually quite cutely represented LOLOL. He has keen eyes, so he realizes that there’s something wrong with the MC From the beginning. Unfortunately, he misses right before the shot hit the target and gets stuck on a misunderstanding. Specifically, that Jingwang, who treats him with a dubious amount of kindness, actually likes him!!!

    [collapse]
SETTING: 4/5

IDK if the setting is accurate or not, but the mood was right! The focus of the story isn’t really on the setting though, so I didn’t think of it as too important.

ROMANCE: 4.5/5

The romance in this was particularly good! I like the buildup~ it was very natural! I feel like there could have been a little bit more in the end, the MC kinda fell back a bit. But that may just be because I was only able to read the first to extras??

PLOT: 4.5/5

Despite the plot not being too complicated, I was certainly kept entertained. It’s a feel-good kind of plot, with an exciting beginning (I liked the beginning arcs most~ though that may be because I read the MTL for the rest T.T)

RATING: 4.5/5

This is a fun and easy read that I think most people will like. Unless they’re triggered by inaccurate depictions of disabilities (idk if that’s the case here, I don’t think so? But I’m noting it down just in case). The romance is completely consensual despite the opening theme, and although the setting hints at violence and the like, the novel is clean and often only hints at them (or completely skips past them).

I will definitely come back to read this again when it’s completely finished being translated!

RANDOM RATINGS:

  • Personal Enjoyment: 4/5 (It would be 5/5 if I didn’t have to MTL T.T)
  • Literary Level: 4.5/5 (Based on the already translated chapters and the way the MTL translated mostly cleanly, I can say confidently that the author has skills!!)
  • Heat Level: 1/5 (It’s highly censored! It skips past most heated scenes and minimizes slightly heated scenes, like kisses, to a very pure level 😂)

It is interesting! I like the idea about how the Seme/Gong actually was the one who got married out first, and became a concubine, LOL. It's refreshing!

About the overall plot though, I can only say, not bad. It is a BL Romance with the spices of Historical genre and political intrigue. So, the romance plot here would be the focus while the historical setting would be just icing on the cake.

While the characters, well, I lamented, if only the MC here was the real King Jing, the person who's truly... more>> capable, cunning, and has a complicated character setting, it would have been much more interesting! Though, the MC being a transmigrator who got transmigrated to King Jing's body inexplicably also actually brings a comedic spice somehow, so, it still has its own excitement.

Just blame me and my picky nature, in my opinion, the MC being a transmigrator who knew the "plot" of the world he was in, hence he could act accordingly and decided to curry favor with the ML, while it's interesting and comedic relief, it's also kind of... boring.

Though, I must praise the author here, for not deliberately blackening the real King Jing or the original host of the MC's body! The author, unlike others who usually couldn't wait to blacken the original host just to justify the transmigrator who robbed the body, instead, she wrote a completely reasonable and interesting background of the Real King Jing. That in itself, makes me give this novel a 5 star generously, LOL! <<less

There isn't much to this novel, an easy read, story isn't complicated or elaborate, the schemes are basic, much less politics than you would expect from it.

In all honesty, it's mind-numbingly boring.

Most of the first 60 chapters are based on a misunderstanding, then it gets cleared up and both adult characters start to realise that they might feel something for each other, just that this process gets dragged out for god knows how long.
I ain't sticking around any longer for that.

Characters are flat, villains incredibly s*upid, most of the... more>> side-characters seem intellectually disadvantaged so more misunderstandings can happen and MC or ML look like geniuses in the eyes of these misfortunate background decorations.

What makes it so frustrating is the writer's habit of dragging out absolutely everything, characters are musing about one thing for a whole chapter, the same thing gets repeated two chapters later, while another point you thought they are done with comes back up in the form of a recap.
Feels like the writer was paid by words, there's no other reasonable explanation for something so unnecessary.

Seeing the overwhelmingly positive reviews from other people, it's probably a matter of taste, so if the story sounds interesting to you then try it out. <<less

So far so good. The relationship between the MC and the ML is very cute and a breath of fresh air. Cause like I'm sick of the angsty MC tremble-in-fear-so-hard-that-he-might-as-well-piss-his-pants misunderstandings that is we usually see in BL villain transmigration novels.

Though I have to admit that I expected more upon reading the reviews. I was hoping the politic not to be so straight forward? There hasn't been any big twists or grand schemes up until where I'm reading now. And it won't ever be apparently. I wish the MC is... more>> a bit more cold, cunning and ambitious you know. A bit more like the real King Jing so to say. He doesn't really shine...

But overall a fun read even though a bit disappointing. Well it's my fault for letting my expectation too high anyway. <<less

5/5 from me. It's one of the few novels that actually deserve it because it has everything, politics, romance, a healthy reltionship between the MC and ML for once and lots of fluff.

I absolutely loved this novel. For once we have an MC with actual brains. Unlike other MC's, Jiang Suizhou isn't OP right from the start but he is not damsel in distress waiting for the ML to come save him everytime either. Both of them rely on each other equally and they have such a healthy relationship.

The... more>> only problem I have is not with the story because it's amazing, definitely worth a read, but with the fact that I can't find the extra chapters. I mtled this novel but on every other site the last chapter is 125 when it says here there are 13 extras. I hope someone can help with this because I want to read the rest of the extras so badly, I literally can't wait. In one of the other reviews I can see some have read the rest of the extra chapters. PLEASE do tell me where I can find them. <<less

It was entertaining for the most part and the couple both had things they brought to the relationship and they had a good relationship dynamic for most of the story (they do have some communication issues though). The plot isn't complicated and the side characters (some of which completely loose importance and practically disappear at some point, including my favourite character here, concubine Gu) have distinct personalities.

The general isn't that overbearing and isn't particularly toxic unlike most other MLs who are characterized like him. It was nice that he didn't... more>> care about calling the prince husband (instead of wife) but the concubine jokes that the prince kept making felt kind of distasteful to me personally (specially since he was so considerate of the general before that point and treated him with so much respect).

I'm deducting points from this for blatant colourism (I can overlook white = pretty thing but dark skin being used as an insult and as a synonym for ugly is where I draw the line). It also gets really boring after they defeat the emperor and get together. I will give it points though for the fact that the prince stopped getting anxious about changing history and came to accept it which was a nice and realistic development that happened at a reasonable pace.

Something that I didn't like was the change in their dynamic after they got together. Honestly, I'm just not that into couples where one party clearly has a much higher libido and every time there is physical intimacy, one party is clearly not all that interested (the prince doesn't really refuse but he just isn't into it, also there is no sm*t incase you were wondering but there is minor stuff leading up to it). The relationship itself also just doesn't feel as warm (which is a problem that many novels have) and the ML becomes too groveling (his IQ also goes right out the window) and the nice, equal balance they had until that point just disappears. <<less

Though I get slightly pissed to MC near the ending What I love in this novel is the love development ❤️

It starts with ML misunderstood that MC loved him. MC (and the original Jiang suizhou) is straight but needs to act as broken sleeve to save his life from brother emperor and Pang shao. But eventually becomes one due to ML XD For MC's concubines (in actuality, his advisers), also end well. One even got a female wife

For ML, I honestly like his character. And looking back on... more>> what he went through from the 1st life, it was tragic. I can only say that he has a strong will and personality to live through with it. <<less

The first thing to note: the translated chapters seem to be labeled as whole chapters but are actually cut into parts- I only realized this when I tried to MTL on chapter 80 only to be thrown into a completely different setting/situation because the translation was actually only on chapter 40. It's not a big deal, but if you're holding out on reading because it seems like the translation is almost complete... it's not. I did find the entire MTL on wattpad, though, and it's pretty easy to read.

I'm technically... more>> dropping this at 106, but that's because the story has hit all the plot points that I'm really interested in and... MTL'ing really is kind of headache inducing in large amounts. I did read the extras, though, and I'm glad I did. It actually explained a bit of the stuff I skipped! And it also made me realize that the personality of the ML is basically like a mafia boss and I love it.

A couple of points:

  • There is very little h*mophobia/misogyny in this (none that I can remember aside from some lines from the bad guys) and it's very surprising considering the time period and the setting in general
  • No OP'ness from the MC despite being (reborn? transmigrated? reincarnated? the tags say transmigrated), though he apparently has a resting bit*h face that makes him a good 'actor'
  • No harem bullshit! There's some 'drama', but since we can see MC's side and know what's going on it's not that stressful.
Spoiler

the one scene of the officials trying to make MC take female concubines to have heirs ends with the ML forcing them to officiate his and MCs wedding instead
