Zhou Xiaoxiao, an ordinary fine arts student, transmigrates over to a strange ancient world. She becomes an insignificant character who is highly skilled in martial arts.

Zhou Xiaoxiao was determined to escape her lowly identity as a henchman and live independently. However, she suddenly comes across the exquisitely handsome scholar Yu Xingzhi, who was tormented until he was on his dying breath.

Since staying alive in this dog eat dog world is already difficult, will she rescue him or will she go down her own path? And can she possibly return to the modern world?

This is an unlikely romance story between a heroic woman and a frail yet beautiful scholar.

Mini Theatre:

Yu Xingzhi: “Wife, don’t return to your maiden house, I’ll agree to all your requests.”

Zhou Xiaoxiao: “You’ll agree to all my requests? Then strip nude and become my art model.”

Yu Xingzhi was blushing from ear to ear as he removed his armor and clothes.

I really, really like this novel. MC is the love of my life. She is strong, clever, independent, but not at the expense of being kind and making connections with others. It's honestly all I ever wanted to read.

Lots of people write "strong female characters", but in many cases, the protagonist ends up being either only physically strong, and too rude or too cold. It's 100% more charming to see characters that aren't an extreme trait, and more like real human beings. MC is great - she's strong, she's clever,... more>> she manages to open and mantain a bussiness, she knows how not to offend to maintain relationships, but she's not easy to bully or take advantage of. Even in times where women weren't independent, she strives to live the life she wants to live.

But what really makes her shine is that she's lovely - She's free spirited and lively, but kind and polite still. She has a mentality to love freely and if that works she's willing to give her all, but she's not dependent of Ml. She's not afraid to show her feelings and cries and feels frustrated when bad things happen, but she still has a life to live outside the ML. She makes friends, trains, draws, and pursues her interests. It just so happens that her relationship is also something that she wants to pursue, and tries hard to make it work, even considering that they may be going against his family, because she really loves him

ML is also great - you can tell he has a very rigid personality because of his upbringing as a noble, but with strong morals. And it's fun to see these drastically different personalities trying to accomodate each other during their travels. At first, he respects her for saving his life, but later he really sees her other good sides, and also warms up to her friendly personality. I can almost feel this affections throught the super cute romance scenes

The translation is not bad, but sometimes I feel it doesnt quite convey everything. Just a vibe, but it's not like I know mandarim so

anyways, I stan <<less

Too adorable for words, the way they just work together and accept each other is wonderful. Sweet and fluffy, even with all the obstacles they have faced.

I really love the switching up of gender roles and stereotypes in this story. A breath of fresh air from all those domineering and abusive MLs and supposedly smart but weak MCs. Here, they're both really lovely to read. Especially the MC, who is very heroic. Top tier in my list so far.


Plus, the MC taking the lead with the soft and blushy boi ML while both of them were crossdressing, absolute gold.

I agree with Four seasons. The most beautiful part about the novel was the bond between the leads. A love beyond bodies, deep into the soul.

I love how they are able to interact even when they're in different worlds through soul touch.


And how his love for her is beyond beauty, class etc. It's just something special between him and her. A love without reasons. Though not loaded with fluff but has the most ideal love form.

Read it in Chinese. Tried reading the English translation, but when the paragraph introducing the female lead says, “The person have a lifeless look in his eyes, his hair was messily combed into two buns...” and then later jumps to a female pronoun with no explanation... yeah, I wasn’t willing to deal with that mess.

Now, why am I harping on the translation when I’m supposed to be reviewing the story? It’s because it’s a pretty good story that flows nicely, and a believable main lead (maybe a... more>> little OP, but in a nice way), and I don’t want people to get put off by the translation.

It’s a sweet love story with a respectful approach to gender role reversal - the man is not especially weak, just that he does get into a lot of dangerous situations and she’s just good at getting him out of it. The other men and women in the story aren’t useless baggage, they all have their own strengths, and the baddies are sufficiently evil. If there is one point I felt a little uncomfortable with, it was that

homosexuality was depicted quite negatively in the story.


I don’t know if the translation gets better as it goes - I just want people to give the story a go. This is a short one and won’t take too long to finish. <<less

I good novel for the heart. It's fairly short but quite full of content. It depicts the enduring love of main leads through trials by blood and fire, quite literally. I just feel the ending was too abrupt. And you just don't know what happens with all the loose ends after the leads cross over.

Though overall, it's still a very sweet novel. I think the title should be changed into a gentleman and a lecher, lol.

the premise is actually really good. There are many fluffy scenes. Both leads dote on each other very much.

although there are some tragic scenes coming out of nowhere but not dramatic enough. It was immediately resolved though. It lacks the drama so I just gave it a 4. Well, I guess it's still great, not bad for the heart hehe.

the characters are balanced, I think. Not overly smart and calculative for the leads. The acts of the villains are also not very s*upid.

the ending is somewhat hurried and not so... more>> satisfying. But the fluff is already passable~ <<less

Good so far, the MC and ML's role are sort a reverse. Instead of a strong ML weak get a weak, pretty one. Instead of a weak MC we get a strong one! LOL!!

I'm not sure if it's the translation... Or my own understanding, but there are so awkward phrases and sections where I'm like... "Scratches head* ok I guess I get what you mean?" But this is purely on the writing and not the plot because the plot is absolutely so sensible (as it can be in this genre) and honestly amazing. I'm so impressed by the gender stereotypes switch up and how elegantly and naturally it was done. The MC is the best. She is so astounding and maybe a little... more>> OP in her capabilities but it by no means means that she has it easy. This really has the workings of a really well written adventure book. I guess it's probably the translation (maybe? idk) that makes it a step below a standard YA novel written in English. But unless I learn Chinese, that's just natural. I can't know or compare if it would be just as great as I think it can be if read in Chinese.

Seriously very good book. I'm only talking about the translation, not because it's bad, but I only suspect that this book can he elevated to it's truest best if only the author knew English too ;-; and wrote it in English. <<less

Fluff, so much fluff

I love the natural mutual respect and devotion they have for each other. I really like the ML as well, he's reasonable and not overbearing.

In terms of character development he really wins, plus he's not an a**hole, I hope there's a lot more MLs like him.

MC is very good as well, although she's good at too many things, it's understandable because she's sharing the body with another memory. I like how she cares for the world she left behind, unlike other transmigrations novels where MC just forgets... more>> about their old lives. <<less

This is sweet novel. I recommend it to those who are boring of reading those novels about overbearing male leads and arrogant female leads that think they know everything because they're a transmigrated person.

This is another case of a short novel that should be longer. Alas! The fluff is worth it though. Lovely story!
