Tyrant Pampering Wife Diary

Description

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

In his previous life, Song Song was a pitiful man. Someone killed him, took his identity and his child, and became the first male empress in history.

Li Xiao in his previous life was even more pitiful. Driven insane by poison, he lost control and killed countless people and just happened to miss the only person who could have cured him in that lifetime.

After rebirth, Song Song knew that he could be Li Xiao’s remedy. He also knew that Li Xiao could be his strongest supporter. In order to regain their baby who also died in their past life, he decided to take the initiative this time– Only to find that Li Xiao was even more enthusiastic!

This novel style is concise and lively. The rhythm is just right. On one hand, it’s about getting revenge on enemies. On the other hand, it’s about sweet sweet romance. The double rebirth setting allows the plot to be quick paced.

One character was born the extravagant grandson of a tycoon, the other, a well beloved royal prince. Both were fortunate children who became victims of villainous schemes and fell into destitute.

But through mutual support and healing, they will right the wrongs and bring everything to order again.

Such a great, sweet and adorable story ! Great face slapping

However the last few chapters could have been better written and more satisfying.

I actually found myself enjoying this a lot more than I thought I would. Granted, I'm only on Chapter 26 so there's room for my opinion to change, but so far so good.

Summary: It's your typical historical rebirth story, only BL. Song Song, the abused son of the Song family's former main wife, is given to the "Mad King", who was previously the crown prince until he was poisoned and he fell into insanity. Terrified, Song Song relies on the only person who ever showed him kindness in the Song... more>> household, Song Ge, only to be killed and have his identity stolen. Song Ge assumes his position as Song Ge's main wife and even as Song Song's child's mother. After sticking around for a bit as a ghost, Song Song is reborn to the exact moment before he was given to the "Mad King" and he is determined to have his revenge. However, for some odd reason, the "Mad King" treats him very very very well (not that the "Mad King" mistreated him in his former life, it's just that at this point the "Mad King" theoretically shouldn't know who he is so it seems like he's treating a stranger very well for no reason), and story continues as Song Song pays back everyone who every did him wrong in his previous life. (It's very heavily implied but not out right stated that the "Mad King" has been reborn as well)

The characterization is pretty good. I like the MC, Song Song, because of how realistically he acts. He's not OP because of his rebirth, and he doesn't possess extraordinary intelligence or strength. Though he is definitely more confident than he was in the past, he's not arrogant unless it is to the people who abused him. He has social parameters he needs to abide by even as the wangfei, and he can't just act willy nilly without thinking about the consequences. As a reborn MC, he's cautious but not a pushover, clever but not some super genius, vengeful but not cruel, and I quite like him.

The ML I enjoy as well. He's not abusive, despite him being crazy, nor is he some sex-crazed maniac. He doesn't force himself on the MC, and when the MC says "no", he doesn't try to push it. So far the only times he's slept with the MC is when the MC himself has initiated it, which I think shows a lot of respect given the gap in power between them. We don't know much about him yet, but from what I've read so far, he seems to be one of the better ML's.

Also huge shout out to this translator!!! The translation quality is amazing, little to no grammer or spelling errors, and I especially appreciate how they clarify certain parts that might be confusing. Especially considering they put out like 30 chapters in one day, whew. Thank you for uploading, you're doing an amazing job!!!

Now, onto the few things I don't like about the novel so far. Most of it comes down to my own personal preference though, so take what I say with a grain of salt.

  • I just generally don't like how mpreg is explained in webnovels. This novel handles mpreg better than most, I will admit, but I still have so many questions. How would a guy develop a uterus but not get periods, but still somehow be fertile, and then somehow give birth....? Would it come out of his ass...? Would he... shit... his baby out? Sorry, I don't mean to be vulgar, but it is a genuine concern of mine and it's somewhat glossed over in the story. There's like a sentence about it, where the Song family forces the MC to drink this elixir that would allow him to get pregnant, and that's it. Now I'm confused as to whether this is just some made up form of ancient Chinese medicine or a subtle reference to magic. However, I acknowledge that I really haven't read that much of the novel yet, so this review of mine is subject to change if there is more clarification in the future.
  • Going off on what I said about mpreg, I also dislike how the MC handled it with the doctor. Like, in this world homosexuality is not widely practiced, and the concept of men getting pregnant is even more rare. I don't understand why he would ask the doctor to check if he was pregnant without telling him about the situation first. After the medical session the doctor understandably thinks the MC is crazy, and tells the steward about it. I know the doctor has earned the ML's trust so it's unlikely he'll blab to just anyone about the incident, but if word somehow got out about MC thinking he's pregnant even as a male, I think his reputation could take a hit. It would be different if the announcement was carefully orchestrated and came out of his or the ML's mouth, but as it is, I feel like this decision is just asking for derision.
  • Given the type of story this is and the position the MC has taken (he is the "wife" of the ML), I understand this is to be expected. However, I'm a little irked at how all the traditionally female attributes are given to the MC. Like the fact that he cooks for his husband, or the fact that he's taken "shopping". None of these chores should be attributed to a specified gender, but in historical context, this was generally to be expected of the wives. I don't know how to phrase this so forgive my poor word choice, but I guess I'm just a little bothered at the reinforcement of "feminine" and "masculine" stereotypes when it comes to BL. As in, one person has to be "traditionally feminine" and the other has to be "traditionally masculine". Again, however, I would like to reiterate that given the type of story this is, the fact that it went into this direction is sort of a given and that this is no fault of the author/story. I think it's just because all the historical BL's I've read have been between mostly between a general and a prince, where both people have stood on equal gender footing, so this dynamic is somewhat foreign to me.
Those three points aside, I am very much enjoying this webnovel. I'll read more and come back to update this review. As it is now, I rate it 4.0/5.0 stars. <<less

It was all good until ML became jealous of his own son.

... more>>
Spoiler

The MC gives birth, and because of that the ML goes into shock for a day (he can't speak and can't hear). This makes the MC cry and worry over him.

The ML then keeps pretending because the MC was paying attention to their son and he was jealous.

The MC learns that the ML was faking it, gets mad and gives him the cold shoulder (like I just gave birth and instead of resting or enjoying my new baby, I was worried sick over you all because you're jealous).


MC gives ML the cold shoulder for a while then ML basically threatens to carve out his heart with a dagger unless MC forgives him.
[collapse]

I saw that and just lost all f*cking hope.

Like wtf? Who does that?

Also authors really need to stop this 'he's jealous of his own son!' trope, it isn't funny, it's just sad and hella weird. <<less

It was a bit tedious to read the chapters sometimes. How do I explain this? The narration simultaneously contained interesting and uninteresting topics. Even the translator had to explain the author's narrative a couple of times. I am not really a fan of the writing style but I did appreciate a refreshing take on both sides being reborn and they actually opened up about this 'dream' at the same time (I think). Some fluffy moments here and there with a little comedy. I especially like the different take of the... more>> royal family here. Well, someone from that line had to be an Antagonist of course, but still quite different!

Spoiler

No sibling rivalry for once, exemplifying that the Emperor raised them well. Parenting done right!

[collapse]

The conflict or the drive to move the story is the emotional factor (E.g. Jealousy, envy, malice, contempt, etc.). However, I didn't like the lack of clarification about Mpreg. If you switch the MC's s*x to female, you won't see any difference at all,

Spoiler

other than that he drank some pompous holy stuff that enabled him to become pregnant.

[collapse]

Although I like the character development, I don't know why authors cannot for their lives make it more dynamic with them being males. Why does the shou/uke have to act more feminine than the gong/seme? Why can't they both be feminine and/or masculine? A mix of both or switch? I'm fairly sure this was written in the 21st century, so what's up with the reinforcement of feminine and masculine stereotypes? Why am I so bothered with this? I need to stop. Lol The reading journey was kind of draggy, maybe because the chapters are longer than a mosquito's lifespan. I thought it was still ok though.

I would actually rate this 2.6 but I'll give it 3 stars here for the translator! Thank you so much translator! &Lt;3 <<less

I'm not done reading yet, but I felt so strongly about this novel I had to pause my binge-reading to leave a review.

This novel is hands down a 5/5. A must-read for BL.

First things first, the translator is freaking AWESOME. I repeat AWESOME. While I usually have a lot of respect and gratitude for translators, this one is just so professional (the writing is so coherent, flows really well, very few grammatical errors and honestly feels like it was originally written in English that's how good it is, and trust... more>> me I have been a copy editor for newspapers so I super appreciate good writing like this). The translator is ethical and altruistic (I don't mind reading on websites with ads but he or she is using google docs, with no ads, which I LOVE because it makes it less distracting). I say altruistic because he or she is sacrificing potential ad revenue, which I understand is important for some translators to keep translating. Finally, if you look at the rate of releases, this entire novel was posted in the span of a mere FEW DAYS. It's such a long novel, and given the nearly flawless translations the translator and editors (if they have any) surely worked super hard to achieve that. So super props to the translator, they are by far among the best translators I have encountered across all the novels I've read in novel updates. Especially if you were to judge by the length of my praise for the translator in this review, lol.

Anyways, onto the story. This is an amazing story, again with good continuity between scenes, things very well fleshed out plot-wise (and any ambiguities are nicely clarified by the translator, in an informative and non-annoying way), and with satisfying face-slapping. The MC is sensible, intelligent, and endearing, and so-far lacks the lapses in judgement I sometimes see with MCs in long novels. There's not too much filler, mostly fluff and plot-pushing scenes. The ML has his flaws but that just draws the readers to his character more and adds to his complexity. He's not exactly the stereotypical cold, perfect, OP ML, (ok maybe he is handsome, smart, and domineering but not towards the MC, who he treats with respect and love). This novel has unique elements that make it stand out from the cliche BL novels that we usually see. So 5/5 definitely recommend. Now, back to binge-reading!

Edit: completed! Still really good. <<less

I have read a lot of bl novels on this site, this is by far one of the worst I have seen. The only thing this has going for it is the translators effort.

If you switch out the shou with female pronouns there is no difference. But thats an insult to females cause I feel like even concubines in tr*shy dramas were capable of doing more with with the sole backing of only themselves or make moves without having some unbeatable backer. I read this cause revenge stories are a... more>> guilty indulgence, but this dude entire plan is using the male lead scary reputation, who despite being a rage driven murder machine is left unchecked. (I dont care how much of a gary stu he is c'mon have some thought for societal stablity.) Whose violent tantrums, of course only the shou can stop, cause of "love", which everyone is grateful for instead of questioning. This literally feels like one those worlds in QT where the transmigratior got to stop the tr*shy character from manipulating everything with their halo. Overall call me crazy but I like it when a protagonist rises up soley on their own sweet, blood, and tears rather then acting like a coquettish mistress who acts like a queen cause they got no knee and are permanently leaning on a shou-blinded yandre to scare everyone to submission.

Finally the mpreg. Can you show some more concern for your kid please. That kid is dead treated like an unwanted third party by the guy who's reason for supposedly tying himself to the ML in the beginning was to carry a baby. Well what happened to that. Kid pops out and he loses all value. (Was it just some preg kink or he just wanted ***) And the ML is not even worth mentioning. Your a grown ass man. How about you take some responsibility and raise your kid. Especially one whose your heir. Eveb acknowledgment would be would something. Otherwise don't have him. And if they just want d*ck down get some protection.

Spoiler

how you gonna be jealous of your own kid. And how you gonna indulge your spouses jealousy of his own kid. He's seven. And kicking him out of the main palace when he's 5 "cause he's to old" Tf you on

[collapse]

Overall most irritating shou and gong that you sympathize with the cannon fodder.

I cant believe I used my first review on this but worth it to get this of my chest. <<less

I like the fact that it's really short and doesn't stay on for too long. One thing I disliked about this was how they were treating the baby, especially the MC when he was the main one trying to have the little prince and then he had him and just really was giving all his time to the ML. I really don't like that especially seeing how the little prince wanted attention from him but the ML would throw a tantrum or get drunk so that MC would tend to... more>> him instead. I really hate that. <<less

Ahh I loved this. Totally worth my time.

It was cute, fluffy and funny at times. There's also some face-slapping going on which I think was perfect.

The thing I most liked in this novel would be the relationship between the princes. Unlike other Chinese historical novels where brothers are on each other's throat 24/7, the princes here share a deep bond between them. Even the one prince whom I thought was scheming behind his pure facade proved me wrong and turned out to be an adorable little ball who yearns for... more>> his big brother's love. The king is also not a s*upid old mf. He actually has some brain cells in his skull. There's a great deal of dog food and the reason of their rebirth is also explained.

The part where I was a little disappointed would be the birth of their baby. I mean I initially read this novel because of the M-preg tag. Author was also hinting about the baby from the first chapter. That is like the soul reason MC got together with the ML in the first place but sadly the baby arrives late, veryyy late. Maybe in 70+ chapter or sth?

So if you are sucker for a fluffy story and can ignore this tiny little disappointment then this novel is a must for you. Recommended. <<less

I read this months ago but I came back to give it a review.

This is the first mpreg I have ever read and I hate it. Never touching this abomination ever again. But that's not the point on why I'm giving it a one star.

The ML is a man-child who got jealous of his own son. I hate every fiber of his being. I feel so bad for the kid. Next, the MC is too feminine I guess? This novel is one of those where the MC acts like a... more>> girl with the body of a guy. I don't remember much of the plot but it was uninteresting anyway. <<less

One of my pet peeve when reading rebirth or reincarnation or face-slapping novel: is the canon fodder/villain deserve all the cruel thing that MC/ML done in the name of revenge?

Well, in this novel, all the villain sure deserve that. The final act is so satisfying. And the one who get that revenge act is the original one. It's quite uncommon to see the original villain get what they deserve.

(+)

  • MC is likable. The main motive for MC in the first act to have a child he never hold in the original world. I found that quite heartbreaking and makes me symphatize more with MC. He's strong and smart in his own way. And the way he seduce ML quite funny.
  • Most of MC and ML interaction quite cute.
  • Love all the prince and how the Emperor treats them fairly. He's reasonable and not blame the Crown Prince for all the atrocities that his mother did.
  • Love Empress Dowager. She's savage!
  • Love how MC and ML (mainly ML) educate the young prince. They not overly pampering him. And make sure he's remember his future as the future emperor.
(-)

  • ML jealous of his own son! That's effing disturbing. And the MC just still pamper ML like it's not wrong. I know in the original world ML never hold MC except in that conception night. But still. It's just disturbing.
  • Li Yan (the crown prince). I need some closure on him. He's likable. And the author seems forget about him in the last arc. Just what is his fate in the rebirth world?!
  • Few arc just meh.
Overall this is satisfying face-slapping novel.

Much sweetness, much fluff, and much face slaps.

Summary:

Song Song died a pitiful death and was reborn on the day when all his tragedies began. Born as the legitimate son of the main wife, Song Song was relegated to a punching bag after his mother died and his father remarried. In order to curry favor with the nobles, Song Song's father decided to gift him to the Mad King (ML) for a one night stand. But of course, now that Song Song has been reborn, he won't fall for his family's... more>> cheap tricks any more, but instead will slowly but surely rise up the ranks to be properly pampered and spoiled by the Mad King.

MC: Song Song, a ger (his body was changed by some sorta "holy medicine") - Song Song is smart, dumb, and obedient but there will be hell to pay when he gets really angry. He is affectionately called Dumb Dumb or Scared Scared.

ML: also known as the Mad King due to some sorta poison in his body that result in episodes of mass murder - The ML is the first son of the Emperor's previous Empress, but due to being poisoned, he can no longer vie for the throne. His episodes of mass slaughter is well known across the capital, so he is affectionately called Cra Cra.

Side characters: There isn't a lot of background story or depth to the side characters, so they come off as either super friendly or super villainous.

Overall:

This novel is very simple, not too much plot or drama. I would say this is a relaxing read, so I recommend this for those looking for a sweet and fluffy bl story! <<less

At first, I was a bit skeptical about their relationship since Song Song purposely got close to Li Xiao so he can has the lil' prince once again. This happen until chapters approximately 30, Song Song still doesn't dare to love Li Xiao, even though he's clearly loves him.

Both MC (Song Song) and ML (Li Xiao) is smart. It's really great haha! I really love it when MC understands what's going on only with a lil clues, so he didn't left in the dark and waiting for explanation. It's cool... more>> to see how MC understand ML just in a few sentences.

Song Song and Li Xiao had a discussion about their past life in chapter 35 but they called it as dreams, not past life. But no worries, deep down they know that they're reborn together.

It's fluffy but sometimes I can't help but feel pity for Li Xiao insecurity. He really scared that Song Song doesn't loves him and will disappear. Li Xiao traumas of his past life is really sad tbh, even though in the end of his insecurity he's always joking around and teasing Song Song, I know the insecurities still there. Sometimes I can't help but dislike Song Song a bit especially is the earlier chapters when he's still thinking about Li Xiao as his child maker.

I don't mind he's being frank but fake affections and caring attitude is really got me mad. I know he did that coz he didn't want LX to hate him but it still makes me upset. LX is really sincere but SS is faking the affection is so....... ugh, good thing it didn't happen for too long.

Well, it still recommended. The emperor is really doting haha, it's really weird to read an emperor who really loves and care about his children. The relationship between the princes is really cute too. It's really new for me to see princes that didn't clash in interest and aiming for throne, getting jealous and so on. The princes is really harmonious HAHAHA.

Oh and about the villlains too, it's actually easy to guess. Song Song is really an unfortunate child to born in Song Family, smh.

I thought LX will got jealous of the lil' prince but no haha, a father will always be a father. He loves lil' prince so much.

Tyrant Pampering Wife Diary is through and through a face slapping, power fantasy novel. The main characters hardly get into any real trouble and any and everyone that wrongs them ends up punished in some way by the end. There's nothing really too deep about this story. It's really just something to read wholy for fun, fluff, and to see how each villain will get tormented without concern for anything bad happening to the main couple.

There were a few problems I had with the story though.
Spoiler

Li Xiao turns into a giant man child around the chapter 70 mark with him doing an obviously horrible thing and making Song Song mad only to then come up with an even more horrible thing to make Song Song talk to him again. Like jesus christ that was nauseating to read through. Li Xiao in general was too clingy for me, but it's more of a problem you see in romance stories in general where the love interest is obsessed with the protagonist to the point where they don't seem to have a life outside of the romance (ie. Friends or actively looking for a good relationship with their family). Another small thing was the fact Song Song seemed to resign himself to interc**rse being an activity solely to pleasure Li Xiao rather than something they could both enjoy. It was disheartening to hear this is how it worked between them, but it thankfully wasn't a major part of the novel anyways since s*x scenes were completely skipped over.

[collapse]
I had a few other grievances with this story, but Raisins (https://www. Novelupdates. Com/fdrev/?comid=170577&sid=29623) already made a great review that basically sums up everything wrong with it.

I'd recommend reading this story if you're looking for something that doesn't require any thinking at all. Although, you may get more annoyed with Li Xiao by the end of the story. By then there's almost no conflict so the author basically uses him devolving even further into a man child to stir sh*t up and keep things 'interesting'.

A really well translated novel that was a pleasure to read. The translator puts explanatory notes in their translations (though if you're familiar with Chinese novels, some of them aren't necessary).

I love the interaction between the main couple. The main theme is how love helps one man overcome his craziness and helps the other grow in confidence. As a plus, the story is relatively simple and most of the plot holes are closed up or explained by the end. The one resolution I wish was more explicit is what happens... more>> to the former crown prince - he seems very pitiful.

Overall, an engaging read that I had trouble putting down (each chapter was rather long...) <<less

went from 4 stars to 2.5 stars as the story went on, due to reasons that other reviews probably covered.

The main plus sides for me were the cute interactions between the MC and ML, who are at the heart of this story, esp since I view this as more of a cheap romance than anything else. There was a lot of fluff and it felt cute most of the time. Key word: most of the time. Some moments felt way too overkill, like that whole subplot of the ML pretending... more>> to be sick and then threatening the MC to forgive him through self harm. That is textbook toxic behavior.

One thing to consider and note is that I don't expect the ML to be a "normal" person after everything he has been through. However, some actions that cross the line should be treated as such and addressed seriously, not lightheartedly forgiven.

Everything else felt a little lacking on execution, especially towards the ending, where I was uncomfortable with a lot of things. The villains, the revenge/face-slapping, reveals, etc were decently done but not as elaborate or detailed and satisfying as some other novels I've read. In general it felt like that entire plot took a back seat for the romance aspect. The MC was usually not the one doing anything, just taking advantage of the situation and of his status as the ML's "special one". Which is fine, I have no problem with that; but it definitely felt half-hearted and almost effortless. There were no risks, and the entire thing was tremendously predictable/cliche, and you knew who would win. I like some side characters, like the Emperor and the former crown prince, but they felt a bit underdeveloped (most likely due to the all the screentime spent on the MC and ML being lovey dovey). The whole dilemmas and emotional dramas between the ML and his brothers, etc had a lot of potential, but, unsurprisingly, was also not fully expanded on and sorta left forgotten. That doesn't have to be a bad thing, if you're not looking for anything too heavy, then this is for you. Basically: a huge reminder that this novel is mostly a fluffy romance one, not a revenge driven plot or anything deep like that.

Also was disappointed that I didn't see much family bonding moments (I had expectations from seeing how much the ML doted and cared for his son in his previous life), instead I saw ML being jealous of his son and using his illness to scare him away. Yikes.

Overall: as a romance story, it was good most of the time (with some dubious/weird moments). As a revenge plot driven story, pretty eh. I had an mostly pleasant time reading it, although the writing style is pretty monotone imo and many moments felt dragged on. The dialogue and interactions were the main thing that kept me going. <<less

A very satisfying read. I'm glad I discovered this late so I wouldn't wait for chapters anymore LOL! I used to see this novel a lot but always skipped past it, I'm glad I tried this yesterday.

I really love the characters. One of my favorites is Emperor Hong Ran. He isn't the usual cruel Emperor we see on most historical novels. He didn't see his children as competitors to the throne not did he guard against them. He raised his sons well, I really loved that.

I also quite like Song... more>> Song's personality. He knows when and who to be cruel to, knows when and who he should be kind to. He is also very humane and knows how to be afraid at certain situations, unlike some MCs who are 'cold' because of their past experiences. I like how he somewhat changed into thinking of just using Ling Xiao as a mean of protection and to have a baby into genuinely loving him.

I also adore Ling Xiao for respecting Song Song. He never forced Song'er to have s*x with him when Song'er didn't want to.

anyway thats all!! You guys have to give this a read, it's definitely worth it. I'm not a historical novel fan but this one really hooked me!! <<less

I stumble upon this novel out of curious in the first place. After reading this novel, I found the story line and how the characters grow really attract me to read it till the end of the chapter.

With stronger MC and how he handle the rebirth make me jumped in happy, because normally the MC will be potrayed as timid and lovely, but in this novel, MC character able to make me as a reader love him more.

About ML, this is the first time I encounter with this type of... more>> character, normally the author will make the ML as a person who make MC rely on him, but to my supprise, it is not in that way at all...

To arrived at the end of the chapter, honestly, I really feel reluctant because this is the most satisfied story ever I have stumble upon to... Really thank to the author who came out with this lovely story, and to the translator who pick up this amazing story and published it for us reader... <<less

Loved it! Was so cute and funny. Kind of ended abruptly but the last few chapters already felt like they were extras so it's okay, at least the story wrapped up nicely.

Although for some reason the ending felt so familiar to me, almost as if I'd read it before ? But I only read translated stories and since this is new I don't know how that could be possible ? I wish there was a comment section so I could ask lol

I like the story, the characters are a bit meh for me but... What I really like the most was how the author created the backstory for MC's life and linked it with ML's which made it clear that the past ML didn't fell "insta love" with MC during their one night stand.

Sadly, there were few points to be addressed before the story ended that didn't, so I invented my own ending in my mind.

Spoiler

1) Li Yang and Li Qing's self exile to Ping province. I had hoped that they at least were given some sort of assurance that Li Xiao supported their decision by assigning protection/title to them or something. (Of course when wearing BL glasses, they'd be embroiled with some sort of conflict with foreign agents and will be saved by foreign princes and then voluntarily married them as part of peace pact.)

2) Although I understand Li Xin wasn't reborn because the priest probably because there's nothing to bind the soul to and probably traumatizing for the child to remember being burned alive, I really wished that he did. That would made it interesting to see how the baby and father to vie for MC's attention. (Baby Xin smacked ML's face to make him stop hogging MC but his parents thinking that he was stretching his limbs.)

3) Ji Ying's story. How he was poisoned? Why? Where's his (martial?) brothers and sisters? What's his age? (Because I totally wanted a story where Ji Ying eventually managed to make Li Xin call him 'daddy' instead *nudge nudge wink wink*)

4) Did Bai Jang get his wife? (Totally should have had MC to use his wealth (extra gold from bet or Rong princess's guilt money) to set up funds for black guards who wanted to retire/died in action and got respect from them or something.)

5) The most important of all... What happened to the Tao Ties? So powerful and yet so silent... (They were sent to the battlefield where Li Yang and Li Qing's stories were at and managed to show off how powerful they were and managed to get acknowledgement from other military sects. They however, would turn into foolish people whenever MC and Li Xin were around, because they doted on them.)
