“Are the novel Gods punishing me because I left a bad review?!”

Shen Ziqiao woke up from her deep slumber to find herself transmigrated as the character of an ancient novel. To make matters even worse, she was written by the author to be the moronic daughter of the villain, merely a walking cannon fodder.

Yet it doesn’t end there; she has to strive against a reincarnated female lead’s revenge! And especially against the major death flag in the plot: getting married to the capital’s fool.

But why does she find this fool’s eyes to be too cunning?

I havent even reached the snu snu yet and I got bored. Take this comment as my own pov to not discourage new readers but if youve passed chap 50 will all that 'grandma' drama then good for you champ. Those were such a drag seriously, ive never encountered such a pitted mindset. Such empty brainless family fight that it felt like watching a shrew and a feeling smug but lucky idiot fight over money.

. Anyways the original FL of the story isn't better, shes painted like a total villian and just placed flags all iver herself. She got the ending that she wanted and the MC and our ML of the story got their HE by stating their story just begone and blah blah I skipped to the few chaps to the ending

First part of the novel is just full of information about the original self character and how she gonna avoid the fate of the original. Meeting the ML was just pure coincidence. ML was not really much appear in the first part until he's somewhat not a 'fool' anymore. It was pretty much about the FL life avoiding the antagonist while attaining her own fam dowries back from her stealing grandma.

Hi everyone, this is the translator!

I'm an ardent reader of historical novels with a transmigrated MC. There's a certain magical allure to it--and this novel is no exception. If you are a fan of Doomed to be a Cannon Fodder or Dreamer in the Spring Boudoir, then you should try this novel out which has a similar premise.

I'll tell you my points on why this is a unique take on the genre:

    1. PLOT: Our transmigrated main character (MC), Shen Ziqiao, is fighting against a reincarnated female lead (FL), Sheng Peiyin. Although the novel leans more on the gag side, there is still a serious tone to the story:

      The main conflict of the novel world goes like this, the FL's family is "framed" by our MC's father which leads to their demise. The FL then is reborn to when she was 13 years old and developed her connections for 2 years, of which then our MC transmigrates into the cannon fodder, Shen Ziqiao. Our MC's father is a high-ranking general, whom the FL knows is hard to defeat, therefore she switches her sights on our MC. That's why she becomes the cannon fodder of the story.

      The story mainly revolves on how our MC strives to avoid the death pit laid by the FL, regains authority on her home and discovers there's more to the original plot than it seems...
    1. CHARACTERS: MC: The original Shen Ziqiao was unruly but submissive. When the MC replaced her body, this is where the parody ensures--she's not interested in changing her character to look "good", rather she embraces her cannon fodder title, fighting fire with fire. What I especially love about her character is she's neither the most cunning or calm, in fact, many times she muses how difficult it is to fight against the female lead's halo and cheat LOL she doesn't win all the time, but she strives hard to fight every time. We have the typical antagonists (fake grandmothers, jealous stepmothers, rebellious s*aves) that try to subdue our MC of which I find a tiring, common trope but on the other hand, these characters still manage to weave in the story making it an enjoyable and sometimes frustrating (when I just want to curse them out) read.
    1. ROMANCE: Our male lead (ML) the pretend fool, Qi Zheng and MC have a very dynamic relationship. They didn't make an impact on each other the first time they met, nor was there an immediate attraction. Rather, our MC is quite wary and harsh on him. The ML finds the MC's antics humorous and ultimately ends up liking her because of it LOL anyway, it's this bickering duo that had me sold on this novel. MIGHT I EVEN ADD:

      This is how Qi Zheng lost his reputation as the 'fool': So there was a point in the novel our MC was sent to the countryside where she meets ML along the way and he sticks along the journey having a mission of his own. Fast forward, ML was making our MC agitated with their usual banter and the MC became hot-headed to the point she PUNCHED him where he was blown away, hitting a tree and becoming immediately unconscious. Our MC was flabbergasted, thinking she had developed powers LOL and while Qi Zheng was inside being treated she tried to punch a tree again only to find her hand hurt and bruised... It turns out, it was ML's plan all along to fake a coma and that when he wakes up back in the capital his illness has disappeared. The ML then narrates how our MC is his saviour of which our MC takes very badly after realizing she had been used all along!


      Why there's an R-18 tag

      further on when they become married, there's a lot of snu snu going on...

There are many more things that made this novel an enjoyable read for me. It might be a different case for you--but if this review has piqued your interest in any way, do give it a try and find out for yourself.

ML has an utterly twisted moral compass.


His stepmother schemes with drugs to make him r*pe an innocent mentally disabled girl. The ML notices the plot and instead of retaliating only against the perpetrator, he makes sure the poor girl gets r*ped by his half-brother in order to revenge against his stepmother.


He thinks nothing about his actions for they are natural to him.

I'm 100% sure that if the MC tries to marry another man he'll go and r*pe her to ''make her his''.

Standard transmigration-into-historical-setting story. It's not terrible, but it's nothing special either.

FL is an adult who transmigrates into a 13-year-old, but she acts immature for her mental age. She only occasionally uses her modern-day knowledge, so her being transmigrated seems mostly pointless and just exists to explain her "modern day" personality and vague knowledge of future events. She's smart but not brilliant. She can be funny and she doesn't let people walk over her, which results in some fun takedowns, but it also feels like she gets away with too much... more>> given the time period. She doesn't really grow or change as a character.

ML: Why he pretends to be mentally deficient for 10 years is explained and there are plot repercussions when he is "cured, " but it also doesn't feel like a big deal overall since FL knows he's pretending and he eventually proves himself to be perfect anyway. He dotes on FL.

FL and ML are cute together, starting off as a "bickering couple", with some sweetness from ML's part toward kinda-clueless FL in the middle, and then some explicit scenes at the end when they get married. They didn't get as much development as I had expected though. I realize some stories get fluffed up "translated" titles to make them sound more appealing, but this story's English title is misleading since FL is never ML's fiancee until right before they're married late in the story. I thought they'd be engaged and then develop their relationship but nope.

Villains are mostly one note, and secondary characters aren't well developed. Multiple characters are still angry that at *3-years-old*, FL's original body was a brat, and then are completely amazed she's different 10 years later, so that's a thing.

This story is very tame on face-slapping compared to other rebirth/transmigration novels, and FL doesn't really scheme or revenge. Overarching plot could be interesting, but unfortunately the main villain is dumb. Story drags a bit imo and I started skimming. However overall it's a decent read if you're bored. <<less

(Note : there are dˋfew erotics passages in the very end of the book, not many, but explicit)

Plus :

- short 195 chapter feels at the same time long and not too long, so it’s a good measure

... more>> - not as violent and gore as many historical novel (light on murder, poisonings and everything that makes many story too much to be remotely believable)

god and bad

- the MC is defined with sub standard modern « values » (lazy, selfish and has no ambition) she’s also « childish » and a foodie (veryyy original?) ..... But - she’s not ever powered, and uses very small means to survive, that will contribute to her surviving the plot... she’s got a great attitude, so while I understand you want to add a few flws to vois mary sue, I definitely can’t understand so many adjectives that are a bit contradictive with the character itself...

- no op, no golfinger - good, an « opponent « which is the heroine, nice too... but the plot grows in a middle of somekind of everyday life which sometimes feels a bit. - lacking? It’s hard to define. I can’t say you it lacks action, but maybe it lacks tension, rythme - for exemple, even if short, do I need a fashion paragraph in the middle of anything anywhere

the bad

- prejudice : as in many stories, vilains are clever but s*upid and there’s no redemption : how you dream they could suddenly realize that all they did was based on their personal mistakes, a wrong idea, a bad concept that would be so much deeper....... worse yet, children are judged and condemned by their parents origns or faults, and there too eave very little room for growth... and it can be morally very wrong...

- the MC can be borderline self centric, of course, the change of period only slightly affects her, but the worse part is the silghly « off » feel of the collection of flaws that plagues her... the writer wants her to be « not to attractive «, but she’ll get a great guy, so she need to be attractive : cannone really be « cute ugly « ?? In the same manner, she cannot be too smart, but without smart she’s boring and can’t survive... ? So you can also forget that she should know things from her own world which could be a Goldfinger too... but jo : she needs to be « mediocre « to fit the cannon fodder standard... and so on... she can’t have « heroine « characteristics, but it’s what she is, sometimes, that balance is impossible to maintain... <<less

Currently there are 55 chapters for me presented but I CANNOT read further than chap 22. My blood is boiling from the lack of justice the MC is willing to do for herself. Man the plot is just so frustrating and predictable in the most annoying way. I keep trying to go on waiting for the MC to stand up for herself but wow. She's really not a good MC to star in a novel cause there's way too much self abuse right here. As a reader I'm just left mad and impatient. And I know that progressively, this novel will have the MC make a comeback but DAMN. Chap 22 and I'm still left frowning and boiling. This is not the only novel about transmigration so I won't waste my time but I'm also aware that there are people who are content with a slow build up for a novel. I cannot say how good the novel will be past chapter 22, but I'm sure other reviews will fill up the curiosity.

The translator work is very great though.



Right so our ML is the usual ML who pretends to be an idiot but he's actually amazing and beautiful. Bah. Obviously he's bound to marry our MC, however, the process isn't pleasing. Our MC reputation is smeared for "adultery" with the "fool" (ML) in the capital due a scheme from a "white lotus". Most of her relatives hates her guts so they're all trying to make this marriage happen. Our MC gets no respect and she's really not even trying to even improve her reputation or face slap the people who are plotting against her. This is probably the author's way of trying to make the marriage happen for the sake of the plot. But you guys. Hhhhh I want to go further but I'd sound more disrespectful.

I apologize for sounding disrespectful towards this novel in any kind of way. This novel just leaves me frustrated. However, my opinion will not decide whether a novel is actually bad or good. People can like what they like, we all have different tastes. Ok peace out

MTL: ☆☆☆☆ (easy to read)


... more>>

Novel about a transmigrated MC into ancient time. The usual cliches (dead mother, general father and brother are away, scheming family, loving estranged maternal family, poor reputation) minus the OP-ness.

ML as cliches goes, scheming step mother and siblings. Was pretending to be silly protect himself.

Antagonist is also living the c*ckroach life, seemingly never ending and dirty. Reborn.


My thoughts


Honestly, not a fan of this novel.

Cliches for me are okay. But I want them delivered in interesting ways.

What I dont like is that MC doesnt need to be OP, she just needs sass and swag. But here, she s meh.

I dont like the Father of MC, ithink he's more hateful than the grandmother. Honestly, If she didnt have a fall out with him somewhere in the novel, Ill drop this. He's a pathetic excuse for a father.

On the first half of the novel, like until the maternal grandfather came. Im not ashamed to admit that I just skimmed through it all ?

On the plus side, of course ilike the sweet moments of MC and ML. The doting maternal family. The doting MLs grandmother.

But for the most part, Ill recommend it to only those who are looking to pass time.

Honestly, to whoever managed to get through all of it... you deserve a medal.

There are worst transmigration novels, but I am particularly against this type of MC.

I wasn't going to write a review on this, but I saw the someone compare it to Doomed to be a Cannon Fodder and Dreamer in the Spring *cough cough* and I HIGHLY HIGHLY disagree. I love those two novels, and this novel here can't even kiss the ground they walk on. Its the distance between heaven and earth, alright? Don't believe this.

I was nearing the end of the novel, but I got tired of it because of the slow development. The romance did not show up until chapter 89 and then, it took several chapters in between for the romance to reappear. Some innocent characters were affected negatively in order to defend the MC and ML, which is a shame because MC is originally a cannon fodder and she does not like how CF end up in stories, but then something happens (although not deliberately) that causes other characters to be... more>> the cannon fodder instead. It's quite hypocritical. Aside from that, this novel is written well and I will recommend it to others. It's worthwhile to read and the MC has a good character. She does not have cheats - she has neither talent nor hidden skills. The only thing exceptional about her is her clever mouth. This is very rare in transmigration novels. <<less

This is a typical modern day girl transmigrates into ancient world cannon fodder. This is nice as the MC isn't super cunning, and doesn't have a lot of "cheats" or "golden-fingers". Unfortunately I was a little disappointed. I thought this was going to be focused more on the romance between ML and MC, however up until now, this is basically a typical ancient world courtyard scheming/disadvantaged/mistreated MC. The MC and ML have very little interactions that I would consider charming/cute/sweet. Perhaps I will come back to this novel once I'm... more>> in the mood for the scheming/drama, but currently I'm just in the mood for some light romance. This will be shelved until later. Gave a 4/5 to be fair, otherwise currently I would've rated this a 2/5 just because I'm not in the mood for this genre and so this story didn't really appeal to me. <<less

Well, the story is about transmigrated FL VS reborn step-sister. I quite like the interaction between FL and ML, it is funny actually.

One thing that keeps bothering me is that the writer always emphasise on the voice of ML (deep, sexy, melodious, etc). It's fine at the beginning but the writer keep mentioning it several times thorough the story to the point it annoys me. Well, maybe it's just me.

All in all, the story is loveable.

A fun read! I like that the MC isn't OP and that she doesn't arrive in this completely strange era and blends in without a problem. She's pretty cautious in the beginning because she doesn't know what's going on and who to trust. When meeting the people from the palace for the first time, she doesn't know all the right things to say or the fancy phrases to use.

I think there are complaints about the lack of face-slapping but in the earlier chapters, she's definitely still finding her way. Unlike... more>> transmigration stories where they have a golden finger or a big cheat or they're a genius, she's genuinely a cannon fodder character in the beginning, which means she's in the body of a young teenager with not much power. She does have a cheat where she knows some events from the novel she was reading (but not a lot) and she deals with issues by being stubborn, or fast-talking, or shamelessness. Unlike people of that era, she doesn't have the same concern about her reputation, so she's willing to forego that to stay alive or avoid pits.

The face-slapping does occur later on and I thought it was satisfying so far, without going overboard. I also enjoy every time she thinks of herself as a cannon fodder character, either because she's lamenting her luck or preparing to do something cannon fodder-ish. I'm on chapter 123 now and I think it's pretty good so far. <<less

Meh. Okay read, but got confusing around chapter 36-37 of the translation... and then some rather illogical things happened where I'm put off with. I mean, what kind of reasonable adult holds a 3-year-old accountable for things she was quite obviously manipulated into? Also, some parts made me question the general intellect and emotional maturity of the main character and doubt this is really an adult in a child's body, instead of a child in a child's body. I'm not asking for a super intelligent or over-powered, over-ambitious main character,... more>> but just some kind of common sense appropriate for someone who's at least past 20 years. Maybe it's just the translation that's making her come off that way, but since I can't read Chinese, I'll never know. But it just feels like the scenes, characters' actions, and plotline are not very well thought out. <<less

I completely agree with Agathe. Her review perfectly explains the story.

I like my F- MCs powerful, witty and independent yet not too OP. I love it when the main couple is interdependent on each other and not one relying on the other too much. I enjoy watching the characters learn and grow into wiser and more powerful being who are not just limited to face slapping all the time.

The Character Development is barely visible. The only thing she learns is how to run her business.

I've read the first 86 chapters... more>> where she was still fighting in the backyard and I got bored to I skipped to some 140+ chapter where she got married and finished the novel. However I did go back to some 120 or some chapters to read some major developments.

If you're impatient like me you might find yourself skipping the chapters like I do especially at the beginning. <<less

MC suppose to be an adult who transmigrated into a 13 yrs old body... sigh, if you you pass c30... you are brave, this MC is s*upid, she can't even be compared to a modern person much less an ancient.

The book has a decent storyline but by all that's holy... MC is just not likeable.

Honestly, I didn't like the first few chapters. I kept getting confused on what's happening but after a while, I got familiar with the story and the plot started moving forward on a pretty good pace. Now, I look forward to reading this everyday.

The MC is a simple girl, she just wants to live a good life so she uses her unruly self to just do what she wants to do. She can stand up for herself and she challenges the bad people in her life head on.

The ML also... more>> just wants to live a good life so he tries his best to survive.

This is a light and fun read. <<less

This is actually a really good find for me, to people who are complaining about the MC not standing up for herself. Give it time! She does stand up for herself and its glorious! The romance is also fairly nice. You'll hate the original female lead though. I sure do. Neutral opinion about the father, it's a good read that I personally recommend.

Honestly, I binge read all the way to the latest translated chapter and I loved it!! I enjoy reading the interactions between the ML and FL, at multiple instances it made me laugh. I also like the FL attitude and personality, she’s probably my favorite FL!! It’s a pretty refreshing story especially when she is actively fighting against the novel FL who is just too OP! The translations are clear and easy to read which is a major plus! Thank you translators, your translations give me the will to live!

Interesting story so far! MC transmigrated into a cannon fodder and is trying to manage how not to die, despite the book-FL's best attempts! The only people who favor her at home are currently at the border, so she has to also deal with them. MC's a delight to read!!

ML, who acts like a fool, is for some reason biding his time - probably his step mother has some 'connections'... They are also related to imperial family, with the book-ML being the emperor - so there must be conspiracy...
