Marshal’s Cannon Fodder Spouse [Transmigration]


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

When you transmigrate as a marshal’s spouse, don’t be happy too soon.

The reason is that you’re probably an undercover agent who’s noble and cold on the surface, but steals information and plays deadly tricks behind the scenes; a villain who pretends to be a sickly white lotus flower, but actually has a heart as black as the bottom of a pot; and an unlucky bastard who was finally executed by the marshal himself on a live broadcast across the stars.

Popular name: Cannon Fodder.

Unfortunately, Duan Hengye just became such a cannon fodder.

Duan Hengye decided – divorce! Get divorced early! There is no limit to the sea of pain.

The temperament and appearance of the white lotus, the identity background of the chief of the Imperial Academy of Sciences, and the force value hidden in the disguise was as high as an explosive watch. He could win if he played!

However, the marshal did not want to leave, but pulled him more and more tightly.

The system prompt:

Your divorce application has been rejected.

I do like the slower pace and the story line but one thing is bothering me too much and I cant seem to continue without knowing.

The ML has a nephew who has only appeared like 2 times. He feels sorry that he doesn't have time to spend with him. But in the current chapter they are going to a festival so why not bring him??!!. His subordinates daughter appears more than the neglected nephew.

Does this change or did the author completely forget about him?. I love children so this bothers... more>> me. But it shouldn't keep others from reading cus this isss good.

Also someone please tell me so I can keep going. <<less

I really like the plot development and although I was confused at first, I was hooked later on.

It's like a slow burn and although there isn't much romance as it doesn't focus wholly on that, I still love the interactions between them.

Currently, it's sufficient to say that I look forward to how things will unfold.

Beautifully written! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

So glad to have the 1st review and show you how wonderful this novel is.

I think that this novel would suit the "shounen ai" tag. There's no pa pa pa scenes


The novel is beautifully written. The pacing, the characters, the emotions.... They're all there.

There really was no instant romance. It took time.

The Marshal is really smart. He's cold but that's because he has to be. You'll know his true personality as you read along.

The MC is really 3D for me. His emotions about his former family (from Earth) and his feelings towards the interstellar world.

How he changed from a reader who sees things in a "God view" to someone who trully accepted the world.

He might be too OP when it comes to data and mecha but that's because his Earth family were also scientists and his interstellar self has it's data and mecha memories.

I love the revelation of his "transmigration" and how it's also connected to the author of the book.

Don't worry. The MC is smart and calm. He also does suffer from facial paralysis but it's explained why.

The ML also understands the MC's changed from being an unfeeling, villain spy to his present self.

I really love seeing the romance develop between them. From simple gazes, an embrace, forehead kisses, to a kiss on the lips.... Simply wonderful.

The chapters are quite long but I didn't really feel that they were. I wasn't bored and didn't had the urge to stop reading.

SPOILER ABOUT THE ENDING (EXTRAS) Do you like babies? Good news!


They had a child together through genetic manipulation or something.

It's a cute little boy whose name is: Heyue

He's a very chatty little baby. So different from his Marshal dad who treasures words like gold and his cold faced MC father.

It's also revealed that the Marshal's face softens and he gets emotional whenever his son is involved but his son is more close to his cold faced MC father *laughs*

When he was six, Heyue grew up to resemble the MC and he's so cute. *my hearttttt~*

He's also a genius with mecha.

I suck at explaining things but really! There's more character development in this story


Another thing to note is the side characters. They don't just vanish.



The MC confessed to the ML that he is not from their world.

He lives on a planet called Earth and is located at the Milky Way galaxy.

Earth doesn't exist in the Interstellar world so the ML often asks the MC to tell stories about Earth.

Their son's name also was the word "moon"

They got married again but this time it's more private and it trully belongs to them.

Just a man loving his partner.

And then the extras come in.


Give this novel a chance. It's not like the other interstellar novels. Yes, there is war but it's not with the Zergs.

It's really a human war.

And the author explained the importance of mecha during the war. It really is for protecting your loved ones but it can also take lives.

There was a moment where I felt sad since a whole planet is dedicated for the fallen soldiers and their mecha.

Thank you so much for your efforts and thank you translator-sama for picking this novel up. Will continue to support you! <<less

One of the sweetest BL I've read. The MC and ML interactions have calm, stability and care. The ML is really thoughtful and caring to MC, not the overbearing unreasonable pervert.

Also, it doesn't have much annoying characters. And the villains seem like side characters. The story is more focused on MC and ML life so if u are not into slice of life, u may find it boring.

Though I find some chapters a litte boring, it is okay since I like the mc-ml

I quit reading this doesn't mean that this story is bad. You should try and read this story, just ignore any side characters that might appear and don't get attached to them. Because the author tends to make a side story and not committing to write that part, which left a holes on few places. It leaves me tad bit annoyed.

A little spoilers here nothing too major.

Example, the ML has a nephew. The author only used him on several few scenes and forgotten that the kid ever existed. It rubs... more>> me in the wrong place because there's a scene where the ML colleague's daughter came to welcome ML and ML's Colleague, her father, back from war. While the ML's nephew is all but forgotten. Even though the author could've just put the nephew into the secene too.

Then there's the genius at the school MC is working at, that's been shown to have a crush on MC. But after the chapter where it's been foreshadowed that the genius likes MC, the character didn't make anymore appearances. <<less

The summary made the novel has a light comedy tone, but it's actually not. The main task for MC is doing his job as Professor Duan, and dealing with all interstellar problem and war together with his Marshal husband.

The characters are MC, ML, ML 2 subordinates, MC assistant, MC subordinate/friend, netizens. Those are the ones CONSISTENTLY appear more often from beginning to the end.

The bad of this novel is how the author made the characters appeared then either forgotten or thrown away with out any detail of what happened to... more>> them.

For example, Marshal's nephew which appeared early and seemed to be important because he was orphan and ML was his guardian, and he also interacted with MC, but then nowhere to be seen again eventhough he also lived in ML&MC house. This kid only appeared twice in the entire story (truly big laugh).

Then there was that FL, only appeared in the beginning, middle then poof. Not to mention the villain, what's the reason for the villain to be villain? And how was their ending? No explanation.

I'm so miffed by this factor.

Overall, this novel is slow on the romance, which is okay for me and more to MC and ML exploit as OP while also building their relationship as husband and husband.. <<less

Although the summary makes this seem like a romcom, it's not. It's really not a romance novel at all. Rather, this novel is more about MC's journey in the interstellar world as he tries to suss out his role while maintaining companionship with ML.

And truly, they are the best of companions. They're not necessarily the warmest or most romantic of couples, but they have mutual trust and respect for each other. However, they lead separate, busy lives and are rarely seen together. If you're looking for a novel where the... more>> couple is extremely co-dependent or always lovey dovey, this is not the right novel for you.

They kiss a few times and there is maybe, maybe, one implication that they sleep together (at least, I would hope so after years and years of marriage), and their roles are never stated... Although danmei logic says that MC is probably the shou.

If anything, this novel delves more deeply into the technicalities of mechanical engineering and politics. Both MC and ML are workaholics, who rarely take breaks so... I felt a little tired reading this.

It seems like the author was going to start a few different plots but abandoned them.


For instance, the genius pharmacist who almost became a second love interest, the nephew ML raises in his home, the female and male protagonists... They became forgotten.


Nonetheless, still a relatively decent plot-driven read if you have the time to power through it and aren't expecting any fluff. <<less

This novel had a very slow and labourous journey both in plot and romance. The character development was very gradual and believable. However the ML did not get enough love from the author. We never see into his mind and that's a pity because that's a character development I would have loved to read. In a way the whole interaction with the MC and everyone else is very impersonal and with reason, but makes it hard for me as a reader to feel emotionally invested in the MC. And since... more>> I never get inside the ML's head and all the sparse interactions are through the MC's POV, I also feel no attachment with the ML. The side characters were developed and felt real.

However as a developer, I have a strong adverse reaction to the author's long and erroneous descriptions of how coding works. It's one thing if the code was described wrong in a sentence or two but lots and lots of chapters are devoted to the MC's work and all the concepts and ideas around it are completely wrong. Even modern code today could solve the issues that seems so manual in this "sci-fi" world. Occupational hazard but I had a coder's rage near the climax of the movie with all the descriptions of the technology. Also the whole climax of the novel was one big plot device that didn't have to happen. Just that part made no strategical sense whatsoever.

The author wrote a lot of world building, some politics and centred the novel around the MC's day to day with a bit of "science" mixed in. I found it boring. Just not enough plot and too much world building and slice of life. It dragged and I really had to force myself to finish it. Altogether not a bad novel, but not my cup of tea. Maybe people who enjoy slice of life novels will enjoy this one more. Don't let me stop you from trying it. But just be warned, not much really happens until the climax. There were a few cool moments but they are very sparse in this novel. Still I like the MC and ML. Just feeling like the author had two very interesting characters and I wish I got to know them more and in a more lively dynamic way. It's still worth a read. <<less

This story is just sweet *sobs*

I actually loved the romantic progression between our leads. The ML is sweet and not the possessive yandere cold-guy type. Our MC is funny, and sometimes ridiculous. But it's fun watching these pair gets to know each other slowly and become 'true' spouse.

Gotta go and finish my mtl first, bye.

I really like how slow the relationship between the MC and ML is. The author takes the time to build it up. It doesn't feel like an overly-slow pace; instead it's just right. Considering the various quasi insta-love transmigration stories out there, having a more realistic relationship really makes the story better. You actually understand why the ML likes the MC and vice-versa, beyond 'they're hot'.

The MC is a bit OP, as is the ML, but it doesn't ruin the story. Since it is about their relationship more than them... more>> beating antagonists, the OP-ness doesn't make a huge difference since it doesn't help or hinder the development of their relationship. It's mostly extra decoration.

Usually I get annoyed at OP characters because it means they beat obstacles too easily, but since here the obstacle is the route towards a loving relationship, being OP makes no difference.

The divorce request mentioned in the summary hasn't shown up yet. I suspect the author will build up the ML's love for the MC more so that when the divorce request shows up, the ML will be too in love with the MC to want to give up without a fight.

Great story. Highly recced, and the translator does a fantastic job. 5 stars! <<less

This is gunning to be one of my favourites. This story had a great sense of action, development, and pacing towards a greater mystery which envelops the novel and is resolved in the end.

MC is an OP character; in this life he’s a genius in mech design and programming, and in his previous life he hails from an ancient martial art family. Despite his OPness, he’s not without small flaws, and what’s interesting is that despite his skills, he still has moments of nervousness that only the ML can reassure... more>> him about.

(I would like to talk about the ML but I’ll hold till translations; overall, a real figure of support for the MC.)

I guess my small complaint is the romance development. The story mainly represents more of the trust aspect of relationships and it may be a bit too innocent for those looking for passionate displays of love - I think I can even count in only one hand the amount of times they’ve kissed.

Overall, great story to read if you like interstellar action with hints of a greater mystery to be solved and dashes of political intrigue. <<less

The story has slow and steady progress. The plot development is interesting, since there many unanswered questions. I want to read more of to feed my curiosity. It’s different from usual BL transmigrations, so I hope to read more chapters (BTW I don’t usually comment but I want to read more of it).

I understand that the MC is not used to the new environment but I feel he should have shared his transmigration & real identity with the Ml, not because I think he should be truthful but rather because... more>> I feel that he would be able put mind at ease and also get some help since the MC also gave the ML good person card many times. As they say two heads are better than one. But other than this I fell the MC is really to my liking.

I feel both MC and ML have left good impression on the readers. They feel real and the chemistry between them is improving.

Overall it’s a really good read. <<less

It's a really good story!!

As the main lead couple are very hardworking in their jobs and do not have cheesy romance or don't often do the romantic couple things, the story seems not to be a romantic novel. But their mutual respects, the ways they understand, believe in each other and care for each other make them the most romantic couple! So yeah!! This is the romantic novel for me. It's just so pure and different from other romances.

And also I like the way the author describe not only about... more>> their couple life but also their works in detail!! I even love their jobs after reading!!! <<less

The novel is really likeable. The OPness of MC doesn't overshadow his character, that is, there's still room for development. He "acquaints" and "moulds"/"integrates" himself in the new era slowly. I think the best part is that the MC isn't perfect. He has his flaws, he learns from his mistakes and does his best to rectify them. The ML is not cold-hearted and grim, unlike the usual trope. I felt like the ML is open-minded in the sense he doesn't build his own bias and tries to understand the MC.... more>> He teaches the MC the 'basic' knowledge that he lacks and MC being quick-witted catches onto it real fast (which can be considered his OP aspect). Also, unlike the usual transmigration trope where the MC usually has some sort of "golden finger" in form of memories and stuff and they look at the world with their tinted glasses of past, the MC here despite having that upstart he doesn't really look at others with bias, that's also one of the aspects which is really likeable. <<less

Cute! Promising so far. I love that it's not a love at first sight story for these two, but rather getting to know each other more.

The emperor is so dumb though, he's so perfunctory w orig!MC even though orig!MC is the emperor's most powerful (and frankly only) tool. He should've done more brainwashing in the sense of increasing loyalty on top of all the other things.

it's a good story, but I can't end it.

It's really not a romance novel at all.


MC and ML are workaholics. Just work and work all the time.
I felt tired reading this.

I kept waiting for when they would develop their feelings, but for how long?

i really wanted to see how MC shows his strength, knowing that it's more powerful than ML.

i only came just for mpreg and Futuristic Setting, but I found just technicalities of mechanical engineering and politics.

An interesting novel
I liked the way the characters were brought up. I felt the realism of the characters ’feelings. They are not in control of the situation at all times, which I see in most similar novels.

Finally, I read a novel in which MC feels sad and lost the Earth and its people after his transmission.

One of the best novel-transmigration-stories I'd ever read!

... more>>

Though near the end of story, they explained that not transmigration but space-time collide-ion..... you know this is my favorite cannonfodder transmigrate. Though MC got the cannonfodder role in the novel, he tried not to hug the novel's FL or mls' thigh nor his husband marshal's. And.... all of the story line is least have to do with the novel's protagonists unlike other transmigration book, overwhelmed protagonists or tried to avoid but still in there with protagonists type. This is the most resonable story.


MC and ML's love interest seems a little bit cold but their chemistry and tactic understanding is everything in a sync!


They got a baby boy in the extra!


What the sad thing about is Meng JinHuai (ML) 's nephew Meng something...... got a little parts and never appear again.

How to became my favorite novels may contain.... the whole story line must at best be reasonable.... no discusting drama queen so this story will not contain a lot of plot twist nor drama parts like make you feel thouched but I love it.

Nevertheless, this is the worth time spending reading this novel so I recommend you guys. <<less
