Fluffiest Xianxia story I ever found, and that says something after "My Disciple Died Again" and "Jiang Hu road is curved" from me.

  • The MC is super lovable and easy to relate with. She was a princess of fallen dynasty but she doesn't feel grudge or strong disastifaction with her life. At most she is upset no one trully care for her after her mother died but she overcome that as soon as her whole sect is hell bent to pamper her to their heart's content.
    The funniest running gag about MC is how she often mention about how she used to be an imperial princess for a few years until her people overthrow her incompetent Dad, and she spoke of it as if it's no big deal.
  • Her sect, Splendid Cloud Sect is possibily the best sect I ever find in Xianxia novel. There's no pointless competitiveness, their students are super carefree and enjoying their life to the fullest. No one is jealous of MC's talent, if anything they're more than happy to encourage her to bring honor to their sect and also worried about her being too diligent.
  • MC's path of cultivation isn't without obstacle, while she is more talented than most and very carefree we learned along the way that she does have her problem.

    She has an inferior complex for being the daughter of an incompetent emperor and ashamed of how her family fail to take care of their people. While she doesn't care about her old status, the condenscending treatment she received from current ruler of her former dynasty did a number to her and she wasn't as indifferent as we thought.

All in all- so far this story deserve my 5 stars!

I've read the entire story in the raws, and enjoyed every minute of it. This is a xianxia world that I would like to be in, where the orthodox sects are the good guys because they are filled with *good* guys, none of that edgy hypocrites crap. Where cultivation means also cultivating your virtue, and naturally weeds out people who are out for shortcuts to power. Where people can still be flawed and have interpersonal or inter-sect conflicts, but still have that bottom line that they won't cross.

I also loved... more>> the characters in this. Not just the MC and the ML (who are adorable characters themselves), but the supporting characters are all well written too. The MC's sect, her master and sect brothers/sisters are all hilarious every minute they're on screen. The other "rival" girls in the cultivation world are all unique from one another, none of them being a stereotypical caricature, and several of them even undergo *character growth* through the story.

The only ones who are sort of one-dimensional are probably the villains, and even then, we get hints of the complicated backstory that caused the villain boss to become what he is (or perhaps he was always that way and the sob story is just his own rationalization).

If I were to say there were any flaws with the story, I would have to say that the second half isn't quite as strong as the first half. This author's strength is in her character building and slice of life story telling, which is what the first half consists of.

Afterwards, the string of misunderstandings between the MC & ML (where one or both are silently pining for the other) and between them and their masters, became a bit forced as it went on. But at least the misunderstandings weren't drawn out for *too* long, before they finally got together.

The stuff after that concentrating on a "main" plotline dealing with the villain boss feels very rushed and haphazard though. It feels like the author was running out of ideas and just wanted to rush to the end. So you had all these skips and cheats to quickly level up the MC, so she and ML can have the final showdown with the villain boss. It honestly did feel hamfisted, and I would have been more comfortable with just a timeskip, honestly. However, the quality is not such that I'd take off a star for the overall story, which I still liked. <<less

Why on earth people vote this one star when it's barely starting. Anyway, I've read 3 chapters so far and personally think it has potential. First, because I'm a fan of the author (to be virtuous wife amd 8TT). Though, the translator has emphasized earlier that this novel will be the author's breakaway from her usual storyline. Second, it's well translated with glossary and pictures. Third, regarding the plot I cant say much because currently, the MC Kong Hou is still a child and she's taken away from the palace... more>> (good for her bcs she's not loved by current dynasty emperor) by a cultivator due to Karma's debt. But I like the MC personality because she looks like a sweet child. Even after her family have been wiped out by current emperor, she still maintains her carefree personality. She doesnt think much when other people bullies her, which makes the bullies angry. Anyway, I'm looking forward how the story revealed. <<less

I have to agree with aeiru28, Kong Hou is such a good child, you will want to pet her head. She didn't have to sell meng/fake cuteness. She is cute because of her earnest and hard working attitute. Such a good kid.

Read this novel for relaxing pretty realistic cultivation world, where relation is more important than face.

The protagonist is a very lucky child. Haha ≧∇≦

She's a sensible and easy to please kid. Not a black-bellied poison mistress, two-faced lotus or a green tea binch. She's genuinely nice and sweet! I love how easygoing things are in this novel.

I really like this author, after all I am fan of her stories. Like her another stories, there is no backstabbing plot. The MC too is a bright, carefree, really lucky girl that make you want to pet her.

Even the ML at first want to protect her from the evilness of world and doesn't want to make the bright pure girl sad

I never thought the day would come but I FINALLY FOUND A FEMALE MC NOVEL THAT HAS ABSOLUTELY I COULD COMPLAIN ABOUT! For literal YEARS I've been searching for female MC novels that could satisfy my unreasonable standards. Ever since I've read Rebirth of the Malicious Empress, I've fallen in love with the idea of what it would be like to have a great novel with a female MC. The female MC was definitely GREAT in Rebirth of the Malicious Empress, the Male Lead just had to be one of... more>> those pushy, oppressive, acting all mysterious type. That literally ruined the novel for me and I was never able to pick the novel back up again, even if I still think it deserves at least 4.5 stars.

Now this novel here, is the real deal. The MC is PERFECT. She's highly relatable and understandable, fun, ADORABLE, endearing, and overall cute. She's more of a little sister than waifu material. There's a strong desire to protect her, and also a strong feeling of reassurance that she is well equipped enough with wits from reading cultivation novels (no, this is not a reincarnation story, cultivation novels really do exist in this cultivation world lol). She's quite mischievous and knows when to restrain herself when dealing with others, she is literally wary of triggering flags that happen in the novels she read.

The novel as a whole itself is phenomenal. The world building is well built upon the foundation of other existing cultivation novels. The world is basically what would happen if the worlds in other novels calmed down and actually progressed as a society. The world is peaceful, no sects, so far, who have death grudges with each other. There's a friendly balance with the top 10 sects. They have prisons and punishments for criminal cultivators even. The biggest surprise actually is that, minor spoiler,

those with 5 elements are actually treated as more important than those with 1 element affinity. It's now common knowledge that those with 5 elements are stronger than those with lesser elements. They only need to nurture them and they become very strong in the higher stages. Because of that though, they are now harder to find than those with 1 element. Balance or something.


The biggest thing that made me most relieved is the Male Lead. I've scoured the land for an acceptable one and FINALLY, I have found it! Who could've thought that the perfect male lead was those who are just like Raizel from Noblesse! (It's a Korean manhua that ended this january. You will not regret reading this past the initial chapters that probably didn't receive proper editing) The type of guy who's probably the strongest person but can't use his powers because of injuries from cultivation, and with a guard that has really great reactions to whatever unbelievable thing to him happens.

Overall, it's one of the best currently translated rn imo. It still has a small amount of chapters but they have all been enjoyable so far. I really recommend to anyone interested in either cultivation or shoujo novels, this novel might surprise to know of the what the other genre has to offer. <<less

Good in the first 2/3 of the story. The author is efficient in buiding world and characters. But she has almost no idea at all in xianxia, cultivation methods and development, fighting scene.

So this love story, slice-of-life, novel finally develops into ''great drawing life-like snake then add legs to it' painting.

Yes, slice-of-life love story, not xian-, nor action-. The final act is even forced-down-the-throat ending. No cultivation. No ascending. No magic. No action. Only forced end.

Author's writing is good. The translator is great. If not the combination is next to... more>> perfect, this novel would get at most 2/5 stars. <<less

It’s funny, fluffy, and takes a very tongue-in-cheek approach to a cultivation story.

The MC has read some very trite cultivation stories (haven’t we all) and has taken them to heart. Despite everyone - including actual cultivators- telling her life isn’t like that, things keep happening to her that just reinforces her warped opinion.

The MC is honest and adorable without getting too far cutesy that you want to smack her up side the head. She is turning out to be OP (she is the MC of a cultivation story) and she... more>> is still deligent and hardworking. The author is good a world building and the translation is great.

I look forward to reading the rest. <<less

It's a good story. Our MC is adorable, kind-hearted and have a strong will. Readers will like her so much

Until this chapter 20, I still dun know who the ML is. and I'm too lazy to MTL so I decide to wait for the next updates...

Hope that the translator group wont drop this story.

The plot so far is very heart-warming. No scheming and everybody around the protagonist are get along well. This kind of story is definitely good for our leisure time...

Fluff. Fluff. Fluff.

Don't think too hard reading this. I would say this is like a palate cleanser. If you are very familiar with cultivation novels, and also cultivation novel spin-offs... then this is a breath of fresh air! Unlike other satires, this one plays it straight. It is not as rosy colored as Kong Hou sees it, but at also not as dark as other novels. Based on the interaction between sects, you can tell that it used to be a lot more brutal and while they are capable of... more>> it, it's easier to just play nice.

You don't read this to see a protagonist struggle and suffer in the road to cultivation. KH has a road that is as smooth as honey/butter. That is refreshing to see! She is a genius, but she works hard while trying to sneak in a novel or two. What else would a spoiled 16 year old girl do? It's relatable in that sense.

Others can scheme for her, and we even see what might be the potential ML. It's really just cotton candy flavored with some cultivation setting. Treat it as such and smile your way through reading the chapters!

Thank you to wyhcwe for always bringing the best novels out for us English readers! I'm a long time fan and keep up the fantastic work! <<less

Up to where I am, it's hard to see any hint of potential character development for MC. She is a perfect little princes to begin with, so it's hard to expect a lot of growth in that aspect. Because of that, there is no feeling of "journey" and it feels like things just happen around her.

But the story so far is cute enough that I don't regret reading it. If that changes, I will fix the rating and review accordingly.

I can already tell this is going to be a series I'll really like. The FL is cluelessly adorable, and her Sect is adorable. And basically, everyone is adorable who likes the FL too. As of chapter 29, the ML is still unknown (but we've got a guess on who it is). But that's okay, because FL is so cute that we can patiently wait for her to meet her destined somebody.

The story is not meant to be taken too seriously. I can already see someone reading this and complaining... more>> because they're taking it too seriously.

The writing is well done and the translator is fantastic. Their grammar is amazing and they only have an occasional spelling mistake. Props to the author for making such a sweet story and a big thank you for the translation team for bringing this to English speakers! :D <<less

The world itself is super fluffy and nice. Well, from what I've read anyway. I love the main character and all the supporting characters. The author really fleshed out the world well, making me want to actually be a part of it. So far, it's unlike any of the other cultivation stories out there because the face slapping isn't the main part of this story. There are some, just not to the point of boredom.
