When he woke up, Wen Chi transmigrated into a book.

In the book, the protagonist accidentally obtained a system, and with the help of the system, he pretended to be sick and escaped his engagement with the disabled Crown Prince. Then, at the peach blossom banquet, he demonstrated his extraordinary talent and attracted the attention of the fourth prince…

Finally, everything went well between the protagonist shou and the fourth prince and they fell in love very deeply. The fourth prince overthrew the rule of the previous emperors and became a model royal husband.

However…….

Wen Chi transmigrated and became the cannon fodder brother of the protagonist shou, and he was the one who was forced to replace the protagonist to marry the disabled Crown Prince.

It was rumored that the disabled Crown Prince was burned by fire five years ago. Not only was his face disfigured, but his legs also ended up being disabled. He lived deep in the Eastern Palace and stayed behind closed doors all year round. He had a very strange temper.

Only Wen Chi knew that the disabled Crown Prince would still become the emperor and became a famous tyrant in history. Unfortunately, he was later killed by the fourth prince for being too cruel. Even the cannon fodder, he was not spared, and he ended up tragically.

On the wedding night, the disabled Crown Prince grabbed Wen Chi’s chin. He sneered: “Here comes another one who wants to step on me to climb up.”

Wen Chi in silent tears: “No, no, no. I’m only sitting around waiting to die.”

The disabled Crown Prince: “???”

To start with, good translation.

However, everything else? Argh. I generally don't leave reviews, & don't like leaving bad reviews but I can't help it today. I just finished it& my goodness it's so unsatisfying!

I was really not happy about how their first time happens ... more>>
Spoiler

MC is under the influence of something & not completely all there & they start having s*x. They don't finish because MC's head clears up & he kicks the ml

[collapse]

Their dynamic is also problematic. It's so much like a teenager's idea of a romance & dear lord, it's unhealthy! It gets better though, which is why I kept reading.

But then the major reason why I was reading - i.e., the mysterious secret behind it all was handled horribly! I have questions???

Spoiler

the ml's past, the mother, the poison, it's getting cured, the reason for the strange powers

[collapse]
, it's just wrapped up quickly without care.

Even the promised mpreg is
Spoiler

a blip, the pregnancy plays some role in the plot but the child is a literal afterthought

[collapse]

The MC is pretty annoying too in the sense, he's a complete damsel-in-distress. Even his "cool" parts are somehow handheld by the ML who creates paths for him. Also, he's the literal favoured concubine of the crown prince - he can't get a single person to obey him? He isn't nice, he's just a doormat.

I really want to scream after reading this. <<less

At c34: I like the dynamic of ML who is really scary and genuine killer and MC who barely escapes death every time.

Their interaction is like this:

... more>>
Spoiler

ML: *looking vicious and intimidating*

MC: *averts eyes*

ML: look over here

MC: *looks but then closes eye so he doesn't have to look*

ML: if you don't want to use your eyes I'll just gouge it for you.

MC: 👀

[collapse]

basically ML wants MC to behave close, MC is scared, ML threatens him then MC does it with racing heart. It's a bit funny because ML never did anything and it reads a bit like teasing him. On the flip side the ML threat is very much real, he can kill and he will kill.

double standards ML:

Spoiler

Cannon fodder lady: your royal highness! I g-greet his royal highness!

ML: (unclear but could be talking to MC) come over here

CF lady: (understandably thinks he's calling her) *gets up and wants to walk over*

Eunuch: PREPOSTEROUS!

CF lady: *shudders and drops on her knees again*

ML: use your knee to walk.

CF lady: I am very blessed! [insert many praises and rainbow farts here] if I could see your wondrous grace up close then I'd be able to die happily!

ML: then perish. *snaps her neck in one hand*

Many people want to get close and kill ML. Also ML had no reason to be at that place other than to help MC.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Another time:

ML: come closer.

MC: *scoots over on knees*

ML: I'm telling you to walk over.

MC: *gets up and walks on two legs*

- - - - -

ML: thinks all if not most gifted food has poison

also ML: eats MC's mysterious food X without being prompted, without prior poison testing, without hesitation

he asked MC for something of MC's in exchange for other people's lives. MC being a poor sod had nothing to his name. Then MC remembered the cake he made, the only thing he had that's presentable to bigwigs. Which makes me think ML did all that just to get a taste of the cake tbh.

- - - - -

ML: no one bother me or I will explode

ML: who told you to shout at him?

[collapse]

Spoiler

ML has an old "enemy" who looks very similar to MC. Now idk if this person really was his enemy or ML just resents him for leaving. He allegedly promised ML he'll never leave, he has knife wounds on stomach and leg. MC looks exactly like him, except the wounds. So I briefly thought maybe there's some hidden past here because before our MC even came, the original body also lived on until the tyrant emperor died. I thought there's amnesia plot, childhood sweetheart, or it was their previous lives...

and then. turns out ML has this healing ability by using his blood, which I assumed healed his own leg (but not his face because it's outer appearance). So it might even be this life.

I don't think ML is the type of guy who'd keep a substitute around. If they're not the same person: If he loved that old "enemy", then he'd kill off MC. If he hated old enemy, then he must like MC or at least enjoy teasing him from the interactions I've seen.

THEORY: I'm inclined to think it's the past life, as in the MC and ML had lived this life before and that's why there's a remnant of control. Maybe MC was controlled till his death back then and can only break through in this life. And he got the knife wounds in a future plot and died after tyrant emperor was killed.

[collapse]

Final thoughts:

Spoiler

sooo I was right, "enemy" was MC, from the future. I guess ML also had no idea how MC never aged or why he didn't remember him. His soul/spirit travelled back in time and met child ML. ML falls in love, ofc, but MC gotta go back to his time. They're cute, just that in the middle there's so little that happens! And I hate that the author used their godly power to restrict MC's movements (author did this in another one of their book, it makes MC seem trapped and also makes the story not about him but ML. Because he resigns himself to the restriction.)

the beginning was so promising, but the middle part is so boring and drawn out. Nothing else happens and the shift between not-love to love is abrupt, even though there were many chapters that can be used for progression.

right from the beginning there's a power imbalance because MC is very scared of ML (and he is right to be), while ML knows everything and still choose to tease him about his life and death.

the dubcon is because ML's blood acts like aphrodisiac, but he also didn't know his blood can make people crave him. ML never really does anything bad towards MC, it's very similar to author's prev work, adopting the villain: where ML is cruel but never to MC, in fact he is only soft to MC.

MC makes cake, MC fights but fails and become pawn of fate for most of the novel, ML kinda tries his best, never intending to harm MC but the plot ends up getting to MC anyway!

A nice story that had a really strong beginning but once you hit the 90's things start to drag a bit. Wen Chi's a love it or hate it sort of deal, he's very passive and obedient but has a backbone at times and is quite skilled at talking. Impressively, his personality doesn't change very much throughout the story and remains pretty stable. He won't perform any incredible feats that garners respect or attention amongst the court, he remains a realistic modern man who can't really fight and while he... more>> has knowledge from a more advanced time; he can't spit out all the facts and procedures from things he read in passing. ML's your typical "domineering, scary, handsome" c*cktail, but I do think he and MC are a cute couple along the lines of Cat (ML) x Mouse (MC). It's cute watching MC accidentally challenge ML's bottom line only to find ML has infinite patience for him. If you're not into the "pulling on pigtails" sort of romance however, you might find the first half of this story very grating.

Spoiler

Also the fact ML has been in love with MC since he was a kid stabs me right in the heart, hook line and sinker. ML was a pretty cute kid...

[collapse]

Like I said though, the plot takes a down turn once you're about halfway. Near the end it gets quite boring because while it makes sense that MC is away from most of the action (he can't fight), but it feels like he completely sidesteps the entire plot. There's a whole conspiracy palace drama going on and ML is off dealing with it, but MC's just off to the side being pregnant because he doesn't really have much of a role in this. Even the times he goes off to save ML, it's mostly someone else fights, ML runs towards MC and MC just stays with ML or tries to drag ML to safety. There's also some loose-ish plot threads that never get entirely addressed, like MC has a few rare movements where he physically can't leave ML or why he transmigrated in the first place. The whole "transmigrated into a novel" plot wasn't needed, MC could have been who he was at the start and nothing would have changed. The story also does that "fun" thing where ML is in a wheelchair and then gets up later. It's hand-waved away, but if that's a pet peeve for you just be aware it happens.

Overall, it's a cute story that has enough palace drama to keep things interesting but is overall focused on the romance. It's also definitely more of a "I'm in love with you because of your personality" type story rather than a "I'm in love with you because you can do xyz/your achievements". I do think MC and ML's romance isn't transitioned very well, the "will they, won't they" is dragged on for much too long; but I had a fun time reading and if you're looking for a romance story I recommend giving this one a shot. <<less

Common trope but still a fun read nonetheless. The ML is truly as scary he's described to be. He kills people easily and the MC was truly scared of him most of the time. As the story progressed, we see their relationship progress slowlyyyy (there's dub con!) and uncovers more and more things that were not in accordance to book plot.

The book protagonists have not made any waves so far. It's only been focusing on the side of our ML and MC. Although, several things about the system has been... more>> brought up and made me curious.

The story can be boring in some parts (progress too slow) but it's mostly fun to read. However, the MC can truly pisses me off at times.

Spoiler

MC is a coward and gets scared easily. It makes sense knowing he's from a 21st century modern man who never saw actual killings in his life. But the way he kept going "I shouldn't mess/talk bad/provoke the book protagonists because after all they have the protagonist halo" is annoying.

Also, even after uncovering so many hidden truths, backgrounds, people not mentioned in the book, he kept mentioning the book over and over.

MC doesn't insist or wonder why the plot isn't according to book plot, but he kept thinking about "book plot, protagonist, villain" as if this whole thing, this world he lives in where he could actually DIE is still just a book he read.

E.g: ML mocked book ML. MC went, "forget it, just let him say it. A villain who doesn't speak ill of the protagonist is not a good villain." Even after living with ML for so long and knowing despite his crazy temper and killing, there's more to him doing that than just because he's a "villain."

It's as if he's thinking all this people are still just mere characters in a book despite already living the life of one of the characters and got to know so many of these characters.

The fact that ML who is short tempered has yet to kill him might just be due to the real protagonist halo smh

He's not just a crybaby, he's a big baby. You think he'd be able to take care of himself a bit or atleast can take a bit of bitterness since he was originally an orphan but no, he even cries like someone's killing him when given medicine. The baby in the extra is easier to take care of than him. Timid to a point even his maid can threaten him but keeps going over the line only when it comes to his interaction with ML. Also, he's more inflexible than... more>> the ancient people.

Spoiler

MC: I can't be empress. I'm a concubine and a man.

Maid: Rules are dead, people are alive. The emperor can make the harem for 1 person, he can make you empress.

[collapse]

ML has a problem with communication.

Spoiler

MC: Tell me so I can stop worrying

ML: Good.

(dissappears to go kill others, turns a blind eye to MC kidnapping to find enemy hideout)

[collapse]

Final Conclusion:

Good beginning, bland middle part to ending <<less

it's a fun read except for mc's unreasonable (to me) tantrum.
Spoiler

ml's life was targeted and he, understandably, wanted a child later, he told MC this clearly. But MC went into a right snit and wanted to leave the palace. Like, who does thaaat? Your s/o is telling you it's inconvenient to have a child now because his life is targeted and you get mad??

it's a good story so far!

the plot is not slow-paced and it's quite fun to read

the MC is a coward, yeah! But I see no reason to criticize him
It is true that he is quick to cry when threatened by the ml, He is also literally afraid of the ml, but he was brave enough to admit that he is THE brother and not the real husband, He was also brave every time he disagreed with the ML and expressed his opinion in any situation he had with him

he... more>> isn't brilliant but he is smart enough to know what should be done in his situation

He is not the currently popular type who can make a revolution or turn his situation around as he pleases, And not the kind who can make a fortune out of knowing the future either but he is struggling in his own way! He is a lovable and cute character and I love him!

as for the ml, his whole story is not clear yet and I can't really judge him,

Spoiler

I was so angry when he thought of the MC as a substitute but things arent clear yet

[collapse]

but I like it when he teases the mc! <<less

It's not a bad novel. The characterization of a cowardly protagonist and a tyrannic lead was what attracted my attention in the first place.

Wen Chi is not really just pure cowardly, he's just cautious because he thinks he's going to die. He's more afraid of pain compared to the idea of being dead (wow, same dude). Underneath the goody two shoes personality and his rainbow farting, he bears a temper that made him snap back to the lead when push comes to shove. That's realistic, those outbursts comes out when... more>> he's too emotional e.g. He felt too humiliated or he's in danger. Wen Chi's too caught up with the idea of the book tho. He got no attachment with the OG's past relations but the fact that he's waiting for the system and his brother to screw them over just to get implicated with the war between Shi Jin and Shin Ye was - s*upid. Not that I want to do anything either if I was in his place. (We're just both cannon fodders bros and gals.)

Due to his experience in the past, Shi Ye got no care for other people, not even his father- the emperor. Because he's got the capability, he do what he wants. This personality of his made him be reknowned as a tyrant to the public. His attitude and temperament sure is tyrannic but some of his actions was done for his defense. He trusts no one so faced with the rabbit-like acting of Wen Chi- he got curious. The s*upidity and Wen Chi's routine of sucking up to him made him amused and thus, letting him accompany him. At times, he crosses the line when teasing Wen Chi and the result of this is that Wen Chi's not lowering his idea that one move will anger Shi Ye. It does not help that all their interactions, he always highlights his class as a royalty who can take Wen Chi's head off. Lmao, what makes these boys so pitiful is that he's seen as whimsical so Wen Chi do not see any of his advances or acts of jealousy as something that infers romantic feelings to the other. Shi Ye is also oblivious to the change of tides, he thinks Wen Chi is his so that's why hos feelings are just of possession. Maybe it is, the relationship has not yet progressed.

The pacing is so slowww, there's still power imbalance in their dynamics that made fear palpable among other things. Is the romance there already? I can see something change what with the jealousy but man, the sudden insert of the fragrant blood that influenced their actions made it kind of meh. We have both couple pair who still haven't seen their attraction to one another- the other was still filled with fright and the remaining one was still stuck in the past. Awkward.

I know, I know I reap what I sow. I read the tags of the story but the story still waned my interest. Maybe in the future I would revisit but for now I'll pause. I want to see other novels first. <<less
