    This is not so much a spoiler as more of a summary of sorts.

    Well as far as the raws go, this manwha is various stories of men who basically wronged their lovers (girls). And in the original flow of events these girls meet an untimely end or fall to demise.

    Our Protagonist is here to correct that. Sort of like a "Quantum Leap" where she occupies the body of women who've met their demise, and basically goes back to a point in their lives to wreak havoc on these men, who've forsaken them.

    Great story thus far, and each arc is roughly 20 chapters each. So you aren't stuck on one long drama. She basically gets in, and gets the job done. Good stuff

    Su Lüxia reincarnates into the body of a noble consort. If things had played out like they should have, this character was supposed to have eventually won the love of the ML [Emperor] via her devotion. Prior to Lüxia's arrival, the OG!Lüxia had saved the Emperor from an assassination, however in doing so she was left barren. This would normally keep her from becoming Empress, however devotion and love won the day. The novel's course was ruined because one of the concubines was also a reincarnator. Specifically, she was a book character who died but went back in time to her younger self. I'm uncertain whether or not she is the one who was the main character of the original book or the one who usurped the place of the rightful heroine of the book. I'm going to assume that she's the original main character, however because this one arc is a little vague, I'm going to just refer to her as Liu Ruyan.

    Since she was aware of what OG!Lüxia did to gain the Emperor's love, she chose to emulate her and in order to prevent OG!Lüxia from gaining the Emperor's attention, Ruyan basically sets her up to lose favor. OG!Lüxia kills herself, which is when Lüxia pops into her body.

    Lüxia sets Ruyan up by undermining her in several ways. She knows that Ruyan will be having a baby, so Lüxia adopts a son from the collection of (more or less discarded) the Emperor's children. To do so she has her interface Bamboo Rat (BR) fake an official decree. She specifically chooses one that has promise, but is completely discarded and would have died if she didn't adopt him. Hoping to disgrace her further, Ruyan brings this up in front of the Emperor, only for Lüxia to bring up the assassination and a prior promise that she could adopt any child she wishes. This makes the Emperor sentimental and he chastises Ruyan, particularly after Lüxia insinuates that Ruyan was spying on the Emperor's private matters. Lüxia begins teaching the child, but instructs him to not appear so educated because she doesn't want Ruyan (or the other concubines/consorts) to see her as a threat just yet. She also dresses him in girls' clothing for a visit with the Emperor for this purpose as well (she doesn't do this any other time).

    R gets somewhat complacent, particularly as she's about to give birth. Lüxia is aware that previously Ruyan had been childhood sweethearts with the Emperor's brother and that in the usurped plot, he was going to set up a supposed miracle for Ruyan after she gave birth, to make her child seem divine. As such, Lüxia has BR put out a herald as well, as her goal is to later use this to make Ruyan look bad. Soon after giving birth the Emperor gets sick, something that the Ruyan knew would happen. She volunteers to care for him while he's sick, as this is what made him fall for the OG!Lüxia. Lüxia also visits the Emperor, using this opportunity to hint that Ruyan has been sleeping with the brother. Another concubine/consort that is battling with Ruyan uses this as an opportunity to outright declare that Ruyan and the brother are cheating and that the son is actually the brother's. She also shows evidence that the brother faked one of the two heralds, which causes the Emperor to assume that Ruyan had both heralds faked.

    To prove her innocence, Ruyan uses a then common parentage test that involves blood and water, unaware that it's unreliable because it'll always show positive. Lüxia is aware of this faulty-ness and rather than have the Emperor test his blood with the baby's, she has the brother test his blood. Surprise, it shows the false positive. The Emperor is furious and has the brother put to death and Ruyan exiled to the worst "palace". Lüxia visits Ruyan, who by this point is fairly insane, and gives her the idea of doing a murder suicide if the Emperor visits her. He does and she offs them both. As he dies, the Emperor remembers all of the positive things about the OG!Lüxia and realizes that he dun screwed up. (Lüxia herself doesn't care as she's fairly disgusted by him.) In the aftermath Lüxia's adopted son takes the throne and she becomes Dowager Empress. After handing over the throne to him, Lüxia leaves the small world.
    Su Lüxia reincarnates into the body of a disgraced movie queen (OG!Lüxia). Prior to her arrival, the OG!Lüxia was set up by the original male lead [An Sheng]. The two were supposed to meet in a hotel for a romantic date, however he drugged her and left her to be raped by a movie businessman so he could get a good role. The rapist has recordings set up and uses it to ruin her reputation and career. The OG!Lüxia kills herself and in the original book plot Sheng was supposed to rise to stardom, marry his love interest (LI), and apologize to OG!Lüxia's grave. Lüxia isn't having any of that. She's given two goals by the OG!Lüxia: win a major award (or get revenge? Can't remember) and find love.

    The system resets the timeline to just after OG!Lüxia was drugged and Lüxia uses a tool to block any recordings and also rid her body of any drugs. Just as the rapist was about to have his way with her and after An Sheng left the room, Lüxia turns the table on him and humiliates the rapist. She takes blackmail photos and has the rapist deny Sheng the role he coveted. Aware that she will still have to star with Sheng on a film, Lüxia begins planning. Of course rapist contacts Sheng to complain, so he's wary of Lüxia. He decides that he'll act all nice-nice at the film set, as he can still use her as a way to get media attention.

    At the film set Lüxia ignores him and when he tries to grab her, Lüxia is cold to him. Unbeknownst to Sheng, Lüxia had paparazzi at the set and they report that he was sexually harassing her at the set. This harms his "good guy" reputation in the media a little, which makes his agent mad. This also hurts his chances at getting other film roles, as his people sell him as sort of a package deal – if they sign Sheng, then Lüxia will likely join as well, as they're dating. The media reports of sexual harassment put a damper on this.

    To fulfill the goal of finding love, Lüxia picks an "arrogant wolf pup" of an actor [Gu Chen] to star with her in the film. He's pretty happy to gain the role, as he fell instantly in love with the OG!Lüxia after seeing an advertisement of her where she was wearing a fancy ring. Chen has a copy of the ring made for him specially (important). He's also happy at the idea that he can win Lüxia away from Sheng, as he views him as undeserving – particularly as Sheng is also known to be dating LI. (Sheng had been telling LI that Lüxia was chasing him around after he broke up with her.)

    On set Lüxia takes the opportunity to make Sheng look bad via a number of ways. She's cold to him for the most part and also changes up her lines, resulting in Sheng fumbling his lines and ruining the take. Lüxia has BR record the footage and send it to Sheng's biggest rival, resulting in Sheng losing a big advertising gig when the rival anonymously sends it out to the media. Sheng decides to suck up to the Lüxia in hopes of using her connections to make things better, but is denied. He then decides to claim to the media that they're actually a couple. This is unsuccessful because BR deleted all of his proof of a relationship. The media and fans also pick up on the fact that Lüxia and Chen have matching rings via social media photos, noting that one of the photos was taken years ago, causing everyone to believe that Sheng was lying all this time.

    Sheng makes one last plea to Lüxia begging her to come back to him. She records this and presents it to LI, showing that he's been very unfaithful to her all this time. LI is not amused and breaks up with Sheng, as well as telling all of her father's business connections that they shouldn't do business with him if they want to stay connected to her family's powerful business. Sheng's agent drops him, as he's now a pariah in the star industry. Sheng dies alone and poor in his apartment. He's only found a few weeks after his death, adding to insult.

    Lüxia accepts a film award and Chen proposes to her. She suggests that they date first. Lüxia takes 50 years leave in order to stay with the Chen a little longer, however she doesn't age so she has to put on makeup whenever they're together. Chen is aware that she's not entirely human but doesn't care. Lüxia leaves the small world.
    Our Lüxia revives in the body of a vampire queen. The original work's plot is about a male vampire [Su Youji] falling for a human woman [Wei Na Bavalenka] who is also part of a large vampire hunting family. The original work had the original vampire queen (OG!Lüxia) dying at the hands of the hunters, as Su Youji had betrayed her. He and OG!Lüxia were engaged and during their youth OG!Lüxia had bound herself to him via a ritual that would make it impossible for her to harm him. Lüxia is given the task of producing offspring. There are only two ways of producing offspring: sexual reproduction with another pure vampire or using a magical chalice along with the blood of a pure vampire. Since Lüxia has no intentions of having sex with Youji or any of the other pure vamps, she chooses the chalice.

    Lüxia makes it out of the dungeon by tricking the main hunter [Xavier Bavalenka], the heroine's brother. She comes home to discover her home being ransacked, which she views as an opportunity to let Youji know she's still alive. Youji is less than pleased, but has to play nice since Lüxia is higher on the vamp hierarchy than he is. Lüxia invites Wei Na to a party, knowing that Xavier will come as well. Lüxia's goal is to undermine the trust of Xavier in his sister, so she plays nice with him. She saves him from a surprise attack by another vamp noble, after which he begins to fall for her.

    Inviting Wei Na to the party also has the bonus of unsettling Youji, as he's unprepared for Lüxia to be supportive of his love. Wei Na also begins to get scared of vampires after she cuts herself and sees all of the vampires react with bloodlust, including AH. Lüxia uses this as an opportunity to suggest that Youji become human in order to be with Wei Na, as this way they will also grow old together. Lüxia also preys on Wei Na's ego by suggesting that Youji will break up with her once she gets old and that he's only interested in her blood. When it comes time for Youji to take Wei Na home, they're attacked by evil noble vamps. Youji is kidnapped and Wei Na is given a weakness drug to put in her brother's drink.

    Lüxia and Xavier arrive, during which time Lüxia implies that someone has been leaking info to the evil nobles and that it's Wei Na. Wei Na gets angry that Lüxia isn't upset that Youji is kidnapped, but this only makes Xavier mad as it makes Wei Na look stupid and naïve. Lüxia also says that Wei Na can't do anything, which solidifies Wei Na's resolve to drug her brother as a way of saving AH. Lüxia of course warns Xavier of the drugging. He's dismayed to witness her actually doing this and confronts her. Her justification? She wails that it's TWU LUV and that Youji has been abandoned by everyone. Xavier is not amused or swayed, informing her that this drug would have resulted in his death since the evil vamps would have taken that opportunity to attack. If he fell, then there would be no one to stand in the way of the evil vamps, who would then take over the world. Xavier banishes Wei Na from the family. Lüxia has Xavier promise that he will not give in to Wei Na, no matter how pitiful she may seem in the future.

    Lüxia and Xavier battle the evil vamps and of course win. However the evil vamp claims that he still won, as he put part of his soul in AH's body. Lüxia was prepared for this and persuades Youji to become human, as this will allow him to escape the pain, something Wei Na endorses. To do this she uses the bond and the chalice. This cinches Lüxia's overall win, as she can now use this power/blood to produce pure blooded offspring. Lüxia chooses to stick around in the world in order to witness the downfall of Youji and Wei Na. Years later her vampire clan is known for being noble and good to humans. While going through town her carriage is approached by Youji and Wei Na. They were denied access to the power and fortune of either Lüxia or Xavier, so their love and looks faded quickly under abject poverty as neither had any actual skills that would be functional in daily life. Wei Na is indignant that they can't get any money from Lüxia/MH and Youji is mad because he wants to become a vampire again, realizing that his life was fairly carefree before. Trying to hurt Xavier, he says that Lüxia won't have anything to do with a human. Both Youji and Wei Na are left to wallow in their poverty. Later that night Lüxia turns Xavier into a vamp and goes into hibernation, after which she leaves the small world.
    Lüxia reincarnates into another small world, this one based on a TV series. In the original plot the OG!Lüxia was the put upon, yet plucky wife of a man with a terrible mom who wastes money like it's water. Her family was powerful and didn't want her to marry Liang Qun, as he had zilch going for him. Despite him being a zero, Liang Qun eventually realizes that his wife is the best. MIL eventually follows suit. This plot was upset by the introduction of a reincarnator who watched the original TV series and when she realized she was in this world, decides to steal away Liang Qun because he was played by her favorite actor. She also doesn't see OG!Lüxia as worthy of him because she's chubby. To satisfy the reincarnator, Bai Ting, Liang Qun is using all of the household income to buy her fancy things and support her goal of becoming a dance hal singer. He becomes abusive to OG!Lüxia and beats her, eventually pushing her against a grandfather clock. This seems to result in her death, at which point our Lüxia reincarnates in her body.

    Liang Qun brings his mistress home and Lüxia meets them both. Bai Ting tries to show that she's more powerful and treasured than Lüxia but is more or less stopped. The whole point of Lüxia allowing the interactions and showing up was to give an excuse for her (Lüxia) to not go outside, as well as to establish her looks to Ting. Liang Qun gets angry with Lüxia, but isn't about to throw her out because he's afraid of her family. Lüxia then loses weight and makes BR swallow a stone that will turn him human(ish).

    Her disappearance from public also makes her protective brother very concerned for Lüxia, so he arrives to visit her. Brother accuses Liang Qun of doing something to her, as he's aware that he's been cheating. Lüxia chooses to go out in oversized clothes to appear frailer and also allows him to "accidentally" see the bruises that Liang Qun gave her. She also defends Liang Qun, raising affection points with him. Once brother leaves, Lüxia says that she was battling with Bai Ting because she's afraid of his reputation getting ruined. She encourages him to take her on as a concubine, aware that Bai Ting's ego wouldn't allow her to be anything other than the official wife.

    Lüxia owns several dance halls, which I think were included in her dowry. Bai Ting is one of the singers, but she's not popular, partially because she sings modern songs that don't make a huge amount of sense rhythm or lyrics-wise in the past. Lüxia decides to make her a popular singer, as this will help in bringing about her downfall. Bai Ting doesn't recognize Lüxia's new looks, so she readily accepts. She has Bai Ting teach the other dance hall singers her songs, threatening her with blacklisting if she doesn't. Bai Ting agrees. Lüxia sets Bai Ting up to gain the attention of a warlord [Wei Qing], who in the original series was pining after his childhood sweetheart and OG!Lüxia's friend. While Bai Ting was initially only going to go for Liang Qun, she's flattered by Wei Qing's attention, particularly as he was played by a handsome mega film star. Bai Ting begins to go out with both Liang Qun and Wei Qing, making Liang Qun angry.

    Lüxia begins planning for her divorce, manipulating Liang Qun into not using any of her dowry businesses, as he thinks that they don't earn any money and because doing so would injure his pride. She also begins to sell beauty products based on designs suggested by Bai Ting, only she improves them dramatically. Lüxia arranges for some of MIL's friends to witness Liang Qun confronting Bai Ting and Wei Qing, particularly Bai Ting refusing to marry into Liang Qun's home as a concubine. She also sets up MIL to look bad in front of those same friends, resulting in MIL turning against the idea of Bai Ting marrying into the family. Lüxia raises affection points with Liang Qun by allowing him to give Bai Ting her old jewelry. She knows that Bai Ting will see it as an insult to be given used things while Liang Qun sees it as a sign of acceptance. Sure enough, Bai Ting refuses it and insults the items, making Liang Qun mad enough to negative compare Bai Ting to Lüxia.

    Meanwhile, Bai Ting has been using Wei Qing to make Liang Qun jealous. Lüxia hears all about this via Wei Qing's mom, who doesn't approve of Bai Ting seeing her son. Bai Ting isn't able to turn things to her benefit since she's only approaching this with a modern mindset, instead of trying to consider things from the standards of the day. Lüxia also decides to run salt in Bai Ting's wounds when she meets Bai Ting and Wei Qing by "coincidence" at his home, by mentioning that his mom is trying to set him up for marriage. Bai Ting is angry, but she's also greedy as she wants both Wei Qing and Liang Qun. Since she's not spending enough focus on either, her relationship with both is getting undermined by Lüxia.

    Later Bai Ting refuses to drink with a customer, who demands that his cronies smash up her dressing room. Liang Qun comes in to defend her. Unbeknownst to him, Bai Ting had just been confronted by his mother because Liang Qun was giving her the family treasures. While he was bursting into the room, Liang Qun pushed his mother aside, thinking she was one of the cronies. He also kicks her. This happens just in time for the local media to witness the encounter and report on how Liang Qun, a married man, abused his mother for a showgirl. In the aftermath Bai Ting realizes that Lüxia is Liang Qun's wife and not a random woman. Lüxia fires Bai Ting from the dance hall, as she's now bad news. Bai Ting attacks Lüxia out of anger, but is stopped by Liang Qun. She decides to take revenge by forcing them both onto the roof, where she threatens to frame them as threatening her if they don't divorce, as she assumes that Lüxia actually wants to stay with Liang Qun. Of course the media is there and reports on this. Lüxia takes this opportunity to raise her affection points with Liang Qun while also ridding herself of him in a way that would make her seem blameless for the divorce. Bai Ting is done with trying to seduce Liang Qun and assumes that she will just move on to Wei Qing, unaware that Lüxia has been arranging for the childhood sweetheart [Wen Xiaowei] to arrive home safely. (Originally she was to have died in a plane accident.) Of course in the aftermath of the divorce Lüxia's family discovers the extent of MIL's embezzlement of family funds and cruelty towards servants. Lüxia also won the house in the divorce, so MIL now has no home, no money, and no servants. Wei Qing sees Wen Xiaowei and falls for her. Bai Ting is not even a consideration as a mistress.

    Lüxia sets Bai Ting up for a desperation move to get Wei Qing to fall for her. Bai Ting sneaks into his offices and tries to drug his drink, only for her to be caught and accused as a spy. Lüxia saves her from the worst penalties by getting Liang Qun to marry Bai Ting. Bai Ting is of course unwilling, but is "persuaded" after Liang Qun threatens to kill her and marry her ghost. Of course at the wedding ceremony Liang Qun only talks about how awesome Lüxia is, further insulting Bai Ting. Lüxia stays for a few years and meets up with Bai Ting, asking if she regrets her actions. Bai Ting, who is now poor and spends her days getting screamed at by MIL while she does menial jobs, gets angry and tells her off. Lüxia then tells BR that if Bai Ting had regretted her actions, she would have sent her back home. BR, by the way, has turned into a human boy via the stone by this point. Lüxia leaves the small world.
    Lüxia has reincarnated into a small world where the OG!Lüxia was a bullied schoolgirl. Prior to her reincarnation she was bullied by the heroine [Pu Xiaozhen] of the original novel for trying to prevent the Xiaozhen from bullying Chinese exchange students and for liking the ML [Min Mingzhe], as Xiaozhen said she was too ugly for him. Mingzhe passes by just as this is happening. When OG!Lüxia called out to him for help, he said he didn't care. Out of despair she committed suicide. Just before she does, she calls Mingzhe, who tells her to just jump already. In the original novel this was meant to be a story focusing on a villainess who apparently turns herself around or something along those lines. Lüxia reincarnates into the body just as she's being beaten up by Xiaozhen and turns the tables around, instead beating her up and taking a blackmail photo. While leaving the scene, she runs into the Mingzhe and rather than fawning over him, tells him to GTFO of her way. This causes him to become interested in her. Lüxia's goals in this world is to take revenge and as a side bonus, gain the love of Mingzhe. Of course Lüxia is completely disgusted by him, so her goal is to break him entirely. She then uses a tool to raise her beauty stats to model quality, which of course causes students to begin to see her more favorably. Lüxia is also invited to join the student council.

    Xiaozhen tries using her family's power to force the school into punishing Lüxia, but this backfires when Lüxia says they have no evidence and that if punished she'll go to the media and report that a wealthy family was using the school to bully a powerless poor girl. Lüxia wins this battle and in so doing, impresses the Mingzhe. Xiaozhen initially doesn't believe that Lüxia is Lüxia, but is made to believe after she's threatened with the release of the blackmail photo if she doesn't compensate Lüxia. She angrily gives Lüxia a blank check, which Lüxia of course uses. Mingzhe is brought into the class as a new student, much to Xiaozhen's joy. It's shortlived as he instead wants to sit next to Lüxia, leading to rumors that he's dumped Xiaozhen for Lüxia. Later while Lüxia is at a student council meeting, she realizes that Xiaozhen is trying to sabotage her, which she expected. Mingzhe appears and offers his help, but Lüxia refuses since she knew it was a trick. This increases his interest in her, particularly as she's so cold since he finds that intriguing. The following day Xiaozhen tries to get a group of guys to assault Lüxia, only for her to easily deflect their attacks using a tool. Mingzhe sees this and his affection points continue to rise for Lüxia. Xiaozhen is forced onto her knees and explain why she bullies poor students, which she justifies by saying poor students are the playthings of the wealthy. Lüxia says for her to remember those words.

    When BR shows confusion as to why she didn't destroy Xiaozhen then, Lüxia tells him that in the original story, Xiaozhen is actually not the powerful family's real daughter as she was switched at birth. To prevent the real daughter [Han Zhen'en] from showing up, Xiaozhen arranges to have her raped. Ashamed, Zhen'en leaves without a trace. In the original timeline Zhen'en wasn't supposed to appear yet, as her attempts to contact the birth family were foiled by Xiaozhen and her appearance was delayed for two years. So of course, Lüxia is going to prevent all of that from happening and ensure that Zhen'en takes her rightful place. To do this she needs to attend Xiaozhen's birthday party, which she accomplishes by accepting an invite from Mingzhe to said party. Her sudden acceptance surprises Mingzhe, which entices him more with her unpredictability. Meanwhile Xiaozhen and her friends try to force Lüxia to give in by getting her parents fired.

    At the party Xiaozhen is angry that Lüxia is there and Mingzhe's date. She throws a tantrum, which makes her appeal with Mingzhe drop. Lüxia and Mingzhe dance and Lüxia takes this opportunity to raise his affection. Jealous, Xiaozhen throws a drink on Lüxia. Lüxia goes to change and in the process, steals the phone number. When she returns, Xiaozhen reveals that Mingzhe left to pick up his sister. Lüxia is fine with this, since it's part of her plan, and leaves to go save the sister from a group of thugs. Originally Xiaozhen was supposed to have saved her, but Lüxia takes her place and in so doing, gains a strong ally that would have originally urged Mingzhe to date Xiaozhen. Lüxia learns that her parents were fired, but just cashes in the blank check for a billion yuan (approximately 154 million USD) so she can send the parents on a world trip. This large sum draws the attention of Xiaozhen's parents, who question the withdrawal. Zhen'en is approached by Lüxia, who entices her to take part in her plans.

    Lüxia is brought into the office by Xiaozhen's parents, under charges of extortion and physical abuse. She takes this opportunity to reveal that Xiaozhen isn't the bio daughter, Zhen'en is, which of course Xiaozhen and the parents refuse to believe. They go for a DNA test which obviously proves Lüxia correct, however Xiaozhen is told by her mom that she is still her daughter, blood or not. This angers Xiaozhen, as her bio parents are extremely poor. This gets out into the school gossip mill and Xiaozhen is humiliated. Zhen'en is nervous about Xiaozhen and the parents, but Lüxia encourages her to play the role of the good, sweet daughter for now. Xiaozhen goes crying to Mingzhe, however he coldly turns her away similar to how he turned away OG!Lüxia in the original story. Xiaozhen throws a fit, which is witnessed by Mingzhe's sister, who tells her off. Lüxia arrives and the sister recognizes her as her savior, raising the affection points with the Mingzhe. He's conquered. This all makes Xiaozhen so angry that she maxes out her evil stat, which Lüxia wants. Xiaozhen spends her time sharpening a knife while Zhen'en wins over the mother, effectively taking Xiaozhen's place. Lüxia takes this opportunity to make the Mingzhe dream of the OG!Lüxia's suicide and his coldness, which torments him.

    The culmination of Lüxia's plans comes about during the school awards ceremony, where Xiaozhen tries to stab her. Mingzhe jumps in her way, so Xiaozhen stabs him instead. He's rushed to the hospital, Xiaozhen is taken into custody. Her life is officially ruined beyond even the wealthy parents' ability to repair. Lüxia then erases her presence from the small world, making everyone but Mingzhe forget about her. When he awakens he asks after her, only to be told that she doesn't exist. He then spends the rest of his life trying to find someone who doesn't exist. He only finds solace in his dreams, which only serves to further torment him. Lüxia has completely crushed his soul and his future, as he can concentrate on nothing else - even resulting to apparently taking drugs to sleep.
    Lüxia is sent into yet another small world, however this one is different since the author abandoned the story without completing it. This is a cultivation story where the heroine waffled between two guys: her Master [Jing Chen] and the Demon King [Bai Lixuan]. Feng Wushuang is basically a fuckwit, as she made huge mistake after huge mistake. Yet everyone still forgave her because heroine. The OG!Lüxia was a side character who loved Jing Chen but was essentially sacrificed to the demons so Chen could save Feng Wushuang. Meanwhile Lixuan shows OG!Lüxia that Chen is carrying Feng Wushuang away so he can tend to what seems to be minor injuries, while he leaves her here to die in pain and sorrow. Lüxia has the goals of winning the favor of Chen, as well as eliminating all of the demons, as well as Lixuan. BR warns her that because the world wasn't finished, it's also unstable.

    Lüxia reincarnates into the body. She's irritated she has to romance Chen, as he's not her type. But she has a job to do, so she stumbles into the cultivation camp with a ton of injuries. The big master sees that she's totally smacked around and questions Chen why/how this happened, discovering that it happened because Feng Wushuang went down the mountain. Lüxia says Feng Wushuang was collaborating with the demons, which begins to smear Feng Wushuang's reputation in camp. Chen defends Feng Wushuang. As he's leaving Lüxia points out that Feng Wushuang has caused a ton of problems, resulting in a ton of damage, some of it unable to be undone or made better. Chen agrees that it's pretty bad and beyond "she's just a newbie", so he decides to punish her. Lüxia asks him to call her by name rather than title, as a way to make amends and also begin to show familiarity. Feng Wushuang gets whipped as punishment, during which she whines for Chen to save her, and is then taken to the precipice to reflect. Lüxia is pretty disgusted by Feng Wushuang, not that I blame her. While there, Feng Wushuang is visited by Lixuan, who takes the opportunity to break her out. Before they leave, he throws away a mushroom soup she was eating that Chen gave her. This soup was specially made, as it contained precious and rare mushrooms. (Important!)

    While she and Lixuan are out on the town, Feng Wushuang eats shitaake mushrooms, which causes her to get very sick, as it doesn't agree with the special mushrooms Chen gave her. Lixuan gets angry and brings doctors to cure her, but as they are unaware of the special mushrooms she ate earlier, they can't do a thing. He slaughters them all while Feng Wushuang is in bed. Meanwhile Lüxia takes opportunity to raise her points with Chen, after which he discovers that Feng Wushuang is gone with the Lixuan. He and Lüxia go to find Feng Wushuang, as Chen believes she was kidnapped, but instead discovers her flirting with Lixuan. Feng Wushuang tries claiming that Lixuan turned over a new leaf, only for Lüxia to reveal that he murdered a crapton of people, which Feng Wushuang should have detected with her cultivation senses. Also, Feng Wushuang had previously promised to stay away from him. Feng Wushuang tries to get them to forgive Lixuan, which Lüxia says she has no right to do since he killed so many. Chen tries to connect with Lüxia, but she refuses him, which he believes was because she is angry with him for defending Feng Wushuang so many times. It's an act to raise his points with her and lower Feng Wushuang's, of course. Meanwhile Feng Wushuang has been in a water prison. Lüxia lets her out, knowing that she'll immediately contact Lixuan to ask for the truth. Lüxia talks to Chen and gets his promise that if Feng Wushuang screws up again, he'll kick her out of the sect. She gains more points with him and calls him by his name.

    No surprise, Feng Wushuang does what a fuckwit does. Lixuan contacts her, but rather than sending him away, she decides to go off and talk with him. Lüxia uses a tool that will prevent Lixuan's aura from being detected so Feng Wushuang and Lixuan can get into a really compromising position. Lixuan offers to let Feng Wushuang stab him with a silver knife capable of killing him. She obviously doesn't and bandages him up instead. Lüxia retracts the tool, Feng Wushuang is caught. She tries again to say that Lixuan is a new guy for reals this time, it doesn't hold water. Lixuan and Chen fight some, the whole sect comes to help. Lüxia uses a tool that tricks Feng Wushuang into seeing a ghoul instead of Lüxia, Feng Wushuang pushes her away. Chen gets disgusted. Lixuan tries to flee, but Chen wounds him as he leaves with a silver weapon. Chen tells Feng Wushuang that she's no longer his disciple, but doesn't get rid of her cultivation. (Doing so would immediately age Feng Wushuang to an old woman.) This makes Lüxia curious, as it was surprisingly lenient.

    Afterwards Feng Wushuang is tasked with menial labor. She tries to go see Chen after it's announced that the sect will wage a massive war that will end things with the demons for good. Feng Wushuang grows angry when people start talking that Chen and Lüxia are a couple. Of course they slap her down as an arrogant person. Feng Wushuang goes to clarify things, but is turned away by Chen since it's none of her business. To get revenge Feng Wushuang decides to betray the camp by weakening their defense barrier so Lixuan and his people can kidnap Lüxia. Feng Wushuang is so stupid that she legit thinks that this is all they will do. Lüxia manages to ward off Lixuan and reveals that she set up recording stones near the enchantments, in so doing revealing Feng Wushuang's treachery. Feng Wushuang tries to defend herself by saying she has TWU LUB for Chen, which he refuses and throws her out. He then gives himself a major punishment for defending Feng Wushuang for so long, which Lüxia sees as overkill. This confirms her suspicions that Chen used it to cleanly cut ties with Feng Wushuang and also set himself up in a major leader position. She just can't understand why he would want to push Feng Wushuang to Lixuan. Lixuan takes Feng Wushuang in. They bang. Chen and the others show up and they battle. Surprise - Lixuan is now weak, so Chen kills him easily along with the other demons. Chen then removes Feng Wushuang's cultivation.

    Lüxia and Chen lead the camp successfully and she finally realizes what his game was: he used Feng Wushuang as a tool to destroy any competition he'd have for leadership. He also used her to destroy the Lixuan, as he was aware that sex with Feng Wushuang would damage her lover's cultivation base. In other words, he never actually loved her. He further reveals that he's aware that their world is incomplete, as their truths and beliefs are flawed and some even contradict each other. He's also aware that Lüxia is different, as she became practically another person overnight. Chen asks Lüxia to become his partner. She refuses and tries to leave by killing herself. Chen manages to preserve her body, but doesn't keep hold of her spirit so Lüxia is able to leave. However in the process Chen seems to become aware of the world outside of the small world, promising to find her.
    In this world OG!Lüxia is a young woman who appears to be a fairly good person, as she works faithfully at a crap job and takes care of her grandmother. She's approached by a creep, who tries to pick her up by offering a ride and then money to pay for her grandmother's care. He refuses and douses her with acid, heavily scarring OG!Lüxia. Her grandmother has a heart attack and dies after learning of the acid attack. She tries confronting the creep, but is unsuccessful. In despair she kills herself, thinking herself powerless. She turns into a vengeful ghost, which causes a system error. As a result Lüxia is only able to reincarnate into the vengeful ghost form. It's also unclear what her goals are for this world but revenge is definitely one of them.

    The FL of this world is a Taoist master [Qi Ling] who exorcises spirits for a living and is a part of a powerful sect. She captures the spirit of OG!Lüxia because she's haunting the creep. (Ling doesn't care about what he did, just that she does her job.) Enter Lüxia. Ling goes to the site where Lüxia is supposed to have been eradicated, only to find that she's still there. Ling tries to defend creep, but Lüxia is more powerful and kills him before escaping. When going to leave the world she finds that her mission grade is fairly low, so Lüxia decides to continue the mission since she's never scored below S. The fact that Ling is entirely her type is a huge bonus. (Yuri arc?)

    Back at the Taoist palace Ling is scolded for letting Lüxia escape. She remembers how she was brought into the palace as an orphan and treated kindly by the Taoist Master, solidifying her resolve as she swears to Taoist Master that she'll capture her. Taoist Master says that she has a more important task that involves maintaining the boundary between the living and netherworld. She's to watch over a spirit sacrifice that will be used to maintain the barrier, using her spirit force to nourish the spirit in the meantime. Ling is taken by the spirit (who is of course Lüxia) because she looks so harmless, but tells herself that all ghosts are harmful and evil. Lüxia seems to have picked up on the rest of her assignment, which is apparently to reveal the truth about the barrier and the Taoist Master, something that was glossed over in the original novel. Lüxia decides to act like a true white lotus flower by cooking, cleaning, and generally being gentle and mild (as opposed to a fake white lotus, although since Lüxia has BR do it in his human form she's not entirely unlike a fake white lotus). This of course starts to make Ling fall for her slowly but surely, although initially Ling is resistant due to her prejudice towards ghosts. However as Ling grew up lonely, she really longs for a friend so Lüxia uses this to her advantage. At one point Ling expands the barrier to allow Lüxia to wander. She comes home to find Lüxia gone and believes that she used her, only to find that Lüxia is protecting a cute little kitten. Ling tells her that if she'd waited a moment longer her soul would've dissipated, further challenging her belief that ghosts are all evil. Reading over the original novel to determine what the real truth is, Lüxia notices that all of the ghosts are malicious and at no point does Ling encounter a kind one.

    Ling takes Lüxia out and on a mission. On said mission the client is complaining that her husband is a vengeful ghost after he died in a car accident. Lüxia notices that wife already has a new boyfriend and as such, gets Ling to wait to eradicate him so they can listen to his explanation. Ling is resistant since she thinks that all ghosts are bad, Lüxia challenges this by asking if she's bad. Ling agrees to hear him out. Ghost hubby says that he died due to a truck running a red light. He should've survived since the situation wasn't as deadly as it'd seem, but his brakes weren't working. He's worried about his wife and mother and upon returning, discovered that his wife had someone cut the brakes. However he wasn't interested in revenge until his wife threw his mom out of the house. His revenge? To enter wife's dreams to tell her to take care of his mother or he'll continue his harassment of her dreams. He makes some vow that impresses Ling. This makes Ling wonder if she's ever killed spirits that were innocent and good people who were pretty much harmless. Sure enough, he was telling the truth and his wife and her lover were tricked into going to the police. His mom gets the inheritance and the guy departs peacefully. This further gets Ling on Lüxia's side. Later while talking Lüxia tells Ling that she has no memories other than being imprisoned in Taoist Master's palace. This upsets Ling, as she wants to fulfill Lüxia's wishes before she's sacrificed. Lüxia forgives her and the two embrace.

    The following day Ling is whipped by Taoist Master for letting the spirit depart. She tries telling him that the ghost was peaceful and the victim, but he ignores her. She goes home, upset that her past actions of killing spirits indiscriminately has made her no better than a demon. She collapses in Lüxia's arms. When she wakes they embrace and Lüxia wonders if she would be as nice to her if she knew that she's actually the same vengeful ghost as from the start of the arc. Ling goes to investigate, but finds resistance when she tries to find out Lüxia's identity. Lüxia leaves the home to travel (since the system allows her to do this despite Ling's barrier) and eavesdrop on Taoist Master. She discovers him talking with the Ghost King. Meanwhile Ling investigates further and finds that everyone who knew Lüxia all say the same thing, which is suspicious. She then meets a guy who tells her the truth, that she was killed by a god of death. It was covered up, but he remembers because of a protective pendant. He also says that Lüxia wasn't an orphan, she had a cousin - the vengeful spirit that Ling was supposed to have cleared away. Ling realizes that OG!Lüxia's death isn't a coincidence and that her sect is involved.

    Lüxia learns that the system will be going offline for maintenance, during which time she'll be cut off from the system and all her tools. If she dies in the small world, she dies IRL. The maintenance will lift only seconds before she's to be sacrificed, so there's a strong chance of her death. BR tries to get her to leave, but is unsuccessful as leaving would undo all of her hard work and result in a failing score. Lüxia also recalls an agent who died, Zero, due to a maintenance period and implied to be as a way of defending her. She decides to stay, also because it's implied that she wants to save Ling. The maintenance starts.

    Ling investigates and discovers that the sacrifice ceremony is unnecessary. She swears to protect Lüxia. Investigating further, she learns that Taoist Master is in league with the Ghost King and that the whole purpose of the ceremony for him is to create a big crack in the barrier that would allow more ghosts to come through. This in turn ensures that the sect will continue to have power and followers. She comes to Lüxia and tries to take her away. Of course Taoist Master sends people after her, but Ling uses her heart's blood to create a strong barrier. Lüxia is really taken by her. Ling tells her that if she falls, to go look for the vengeful ghost. Maintenance is still active, but has one hour to go. Lüxia uses her spirit energy to heal Ling. They're caught by the Taoist Master. Lüxia reveals that she made a talisman that will give her immense spiritual power, enough to tide her by until the maintenance is up if her aura is separated from Ling's.

    Taoist Master tortures Ling. Lüxia draws his attention away and reveals that the offhand line that hinted at the truth was that the sect had been in decline until Taoist Master: the real reason was that he was using the sacrifices to open up the crack to the ghost world. Also, the Ghost King is the prior Taoist Master, who apparently committed suicide. This is why the two were able to collaborate. Lüxia also reveals that she's the vengeful ghost. Ghost King and Taoist Master try to team up and destroy Lüxia, however Ling stops them. Lüxia says that the underworld king is disgusted with the Ghost King. The Ghost King questions this, Lüxia reveals to BR that it's just a ploy to give Ling time to power up. Lüxia uses a useless tool to trick them into thinking that she's passing judgement. System comes back up just in time. Lüxia gets rid of the baddies and completes the missions, earning a SS grade. Ling guesses that Lüxia is not of this world, which Lüxia confirms. Ling asks if everything was a lie, Lüxia tells her to come and find her.
    Lüxia is basically transmigrated to the legitimate daughter of the Su family [Lüxia's family in the first arc] as Zi Yue. She is Lüxia's niece. Lüxia can't use her name since its rude to have the same name as the Empress Dowager.
    Lüxia basically has to fight with Zi Yue's father's illegitimate daughter [Ming Yue] who did so just because she's jelly of legitimate daughter status.
    Their grandmother favours Ming Yue as she didn't like Zi Yue's late mother.
    Ming Yue schemed to make other nobles witness Zi Yue being together with a trash nobleman so she will be forced to marry him. Zi Yue committed suicide out of shame.
    Lüxia dressed herself beautifully and invited noblewomen to a gathering. Since Zi Yue was seen 'dressing improperly' when together in a room with the trash nobleman, Lüxia style her dress in a unique, beautiful way so she can say its fashion. Initially, the noblewomen scorned Lüxia but after she taught them how to style themselves, they started to side with her.
    the trash nobleman's family came to Su family to propose a marriage with Lüxia, but Lüxia rejected since she was dressed appropriately then and there isn't any evidence of her having relationship with the trash nobleman except for the 'improper dressing' incident.
    Since the dad didn't like the trash nobleman's lowly ranked family, he was fine with Lüxia's rejection and threw the betrothal gifts out of the door.
    Lüxia lured the trash nobleman's mother into spilling out who gave her the idea and she pointed at Ming Yue. Ming Yue instantly pleaded to the grandmother, saying she is just trying to let the matter settle as fast as possible to not shame the family. Lüxia countered by pleading to the dad, crying out that even if it's unintentional, Ming Yue did ruin her reputation. Ming Yue asked for forgiveness by initiating her own punishment of staying in the ancestral hall for three months to pray. with that, if Lüxia persisted, others will view her as being petty, so she can only let things go.
    Three days later, Ming Yue's concubine mother pleaded the dad to let Ming Yue off but the dad rejected. still, the pleading made him view Lüxia in a bad light again as he felt the situation was just a storm in a teacup.
    A battle of wits ensued between Lüxia and Ming Yue. Lüxia purposely made one of Ming Yue's servant underling eavesdrop on her telling her servant it will be best if Ming Yue feigned sickness so she could send her away. Lüxia knows Ming Yue won't believe the underling since the underling had exposed herself when she lured Zi Yue into the room with the trash nobleman.
    Ming Yue feigned sick and Lüxia sent a servant to inform the grandmother. the grandmother went to visit Ming Yue and send her servant to tell Lüxia to stop with the punishment. with that, Lüxia went over to the dad, telling him that grandmother wants her to stop the punishment, hinting to him that Ming Yue could control the dad's decision since she had both the concubine mother and grandmother's backing. Since the dad doesn't want others to threaten his authority in the family, a seed of suspicion of Ming Yue grew in him. the dad awarded Lüxia 'kindness of letting Ming Yue off' by allowing her to go with him to the temple during Hungry Ghost Festival because she will get a chance to meet the emperor. on the other hand, being suspicious that the grandmother was used to challenge his authority, the dad scolded the concubine and disallow Ming Yue from going to the temple.
    Ming Yue countered by putting a mild poison in the grandmother's food so she could use the grandmother's illness as an excuse to pray in the temple as well.
    Lüxia didn't mind as she wanted the emperor to meet Ming Yue to see if he truly know how to see through a bitch from her teaching ten years ago.
    Ming Yue dressed like the late empress dowager(past Lüxia) as she thought doing so will attract the emperor's attention. Instead, the emperor scorned her since her facial features don't suit the style of dressing. Due to past Lüxia's influence, he had an eye for dressing etc.
    Lüxia set up a trap for Ming Yue by letting her chance upon her meeting up with a guard (disguised by little guy [system]) Lüxia 'accidentally' dropped a penchant that was usually used by guys and let Ming Yue's underling see her together with a random man.
    Ming Yue let the emperor know about this but the emperor wasn't impressed by her schemes [he saw through what she was doing]. Ming Yue insisted on the emperor following her along to see if she was telling the truth.
    Once Lüxia noticed Ming Yue had arrived with the emperor and all, she kissed little guy. excited, Ming Yue tried to be like 'surprise motherf*cker'/I caught u' on Lüxia but Lüxia turn little guy invisible to others. Other than Ming Yue, no one else saw Little guy, so the emperor was like, wtf are u going on about? Ming Yue persisted by asking the emperor to search the whole bamboo forest area but of course, found nothing. With no way out, Ming Yue let her servant underling take the blame.Ming Yue asked Lüxia to give the servant a punishment since she knew Lüxia can't dish out any cruel punishment in front of the emperor, but Lüxia pushed the responsibility to the dad, aka the dad will totally know Ming Yue tried to ruin her reputation again.
    The emperor got more and more interested with Lüxia as he felt she was similar to the late empress dowager.
    The dad was pissed and punished her by banning her from going out and telling her to copy the book on female virtues.
    Ming Yue slit her wrist to seek Lüxia's forgiveness and so, Lüxia 'forgave' her. Little guy asked why isn't Lüxia countering n she told him it was fun to see schemers like Ming Yue crash and burn on their own.
    Lüxia was invited to a flower gazing party in the palace by the emperor(such parties are usually held for emperors to select his wives.) Ming Yue butt into the conversation and the dad allowed her to go along as well.
    Yet again, Ming Yue dressed like past Lüxia to attract the emperor's attention (but he just got even more sick of her). Then Ming Yue 'accidentally' revealed bruises on her hands, stating that Lüxia punished her for the prev incident. She added that Lüxia thinks she is going to be the empress and felt even more prestigious than the late empress dowager since past Lüxia had never become an empress.
    the emperor saw through her schemes as no way would Lüxia be so stupid as to injure her right before the party. Ming Yue tried to win favour by confessing her love for the emperor but the emperor didn't care at all.
    The emperor found Lüxia and proposed to her. initially, Lüxia 'rejected' and the emperor was fine with it as he didn't want another lady to enter the palace unwillingly and would only take one wife in his entire life. Lüxia ended up accepting the proposal while Ming Yue looked at the sidelines in jealousy.
    Ming Yue set Lüxia up by poisoning the grandmother with red ginseng soup and making it so that it was linked to Lüxia. However, every single thing Lüxia used were bestowed from the emperor, so no way would Lüxia have cheap ingredients of the red ginseng soup. After which, Lüxia invited a witness over (Lüxia bribed the grandmother's servant) who stated that indeed, Lüxia sent soup over but the grandmother gave it away. Then, Ming Yue's servant took away the soup and served it to the grandmother in Ming Yue's name.

    To save herself, Ming Yue pushed the blame to her mother and ended up killing her. before her death, it was revealed that the concubine mother had always insulted Ming Yue and compared her with the legitimate daughter, which is probably how she got her complex. Ming Yue blamed Lüxia for forcing her to kill her mother.
    Lüxia suggested to the dad to let her give out porridge to the poor in the name of Su Family. the dad agreed since it would boost Lüxia's reputation.Ming Yue went along as well and started scheming again.
    when they were giving out porridge, Ming Yue 'realised' the rice they brought had grown moldy so she suggested Lüxia to go over to one of Su Family's houses nearby.
    Lüxia fooled Ming Yue by letting her find her sachel in the carriage before knocking her unconscious so Ming Yue would take her place in the schemes.
    Previously, Ming Yue has written a letter to trash nobleman to lure him to Lüxia's carriage. Trash nobleman wanted to rape Ming Yue so she fled in a hurry. when chasing Ming Yue, the trash nobleman was caught and ended up killed by Lüxia. Lüxia set the scene up to look as if he was killed by Ming Yue.
    Ming Yue tried to deny it but the carriage driver and her personal servant called her out. the emperor banished her from the Su Family and sentence her to jail.
    One year later, it was revealed that Ming Yue ended up turning into a servant. when she was eating a bun that had dropped onto the floor, she heard from her owners that the emperor would be marrying Lüxia that day. She grabbed onto the owner's lapel in disbelief but was hit severely right after. Ming Yue ended up turning crazy and thought she landed in such a state because her mother cursed her before her death.
    during their wedding night, Lüxia asked the emperor when did he realise she was the late Lüxia. he told her the transmigration stories that late Lüxia told him made him get the idea.Lüxia asked, "If that's so, are you still willing to let me be the empress"
    the emperor, "Well, I don't know what Mother is trying to achieve so the only thing I can do is to cooperate with Mother.
    although I don't know how Mother turned into Su Zi Yue nor why Mother wants to enter the palace, but
    I will fulfil any of Mother's wishes"
    Little guy, "so touching! what a filial boi!"
    Lüxia, "As I thought, you are always such a smart little boy
    My mission is complete now, do you have anything you want to say to me?
    Emperor kneels down, "please stroke my hair like you used to again."
    Lüxia, "Sure"
    Emperor, "... will Mother come back again to visit me?"
    Lüxia, "it depends."
    Emperor, "this is enough, I'm satisfied with meeting Mother this one last time"
    Lüxia, "farewell, Yun Ling."
    Emperor, "goodbye, mother."
    In this small world our Lüxia doesn't reincarnate into the host body, as they're still alive. Because of this, she appears before the character in a small form, although she can occasionally take over the host's body upon request. The host is a woman by the name of 'Qiaomu Liangxia'. The premise of this small world is that it centers on a woman, Tang Mengji, who travels back in time and takes the opportunity to publish stories that she knew would be popular in the future. When the true authors try to publish their work or accuse her of plagiarism, she uses her clout and fandom to smack them down. Lüxia is given the task of stopping her.

    Lüxia arrives just after Liangxia discovers that her story has been stolen by Mengji, however no one believes her because Mengji started publishing first. Mengji herself doesn't do anything when her agent calls over the accusations, as she thinks that she's untouchable. Liangxia readily agrees to accept Lüxia's help, as she wants to get even and have her work recognized, as well as stop Mengji from stealing other people's work. First thing Lüxia does is tell Liangxia to publish the end of her story. The reason for this is that since Mengji stole Liangxia's story, the ending Liangxia publishes will of course be the true ending. Once it's out there, Mengji can't use the original ending or it would be effectively admitting that she stole the story. She initially tries to write the ending herself, but finds that she can't. Attempts to stimulate her creative side just result in her becoming fat and losing some of her hair in a comedic fashion. Still thinking that she's untouchable, Mengji has her agent hire a ghostwriter even though she's warned that doing this will result in a terrible ending and harm her reputation, if only a little. As expected, the ending stinks and the public is mad. Lüxia advises against making the ghostwriter public, as now isn't the right time.

    Lüxia instead advises Liangxia to strike out at Mengji by making a post drawing attention to the specific styles and trademarks that Liangxia uses as a writer and are present in the book Mengji stole. Liangxia is disappointed that the post didn't get more people on her side, but Lüxia says that the intent was to start the ball rolling on changing public perception and to get Mengji to contact Liangxia for a meeting. At the meeting Mengji tries claiming that she didn't plagiarize and offering to pay her off. Lüxia takes over Liangxia's body and challenges Mengji, taking the payoff but stating that it's just a down payment on what she really owes. She also hints that she's aware of P's time traveling, making Mengji nervous. The point of all of this was to make Mengji more nervous and uneasy, as she will be more likely to make more mistakes. Mengji meanwhile hires someone to follow Liangxia's movements.

    Liangxia continues to publish more evidence that she's the true author, getting more people on her side. There's not much that Mengji can do at this point legal-wise, as it'd just make her look bad, so the agent recommends having a televised writing competition. They rig the competition a little by letting Mengji know the theme ahead of time, giving her time to think of a good story from the future. Lüxia is eager for this, as it'll be a way to trip Mengji up. Competition happens and both Mengji and Lianxia write a story to fit the theme. A famous agent [Gu Qingxing] is there to judge. In the original story he and Mengji would have hooked up and become a couple, so Lüxia wants to prevent that. Mengji wins the competition, however Qingxing mentions that her story is too polished, like it was set up ahead of time. Now that things are in place, Lüxia springs her trap. She has BR publish a review about the story and predate said review to far enough before the competition so the public will assume that it was previously published somewhere. This gets more people to believe that Mengji is a plagiarist and the competition ends with no winners, as the show cannot award Mengji due to the circumstances. Qingxing also questions why the characters in P's story speak in a different accent, as the average writer would choose familiar locations and accents when they only have a limited time to plan, further hammering home that Mengji plagiarized.

    Qingxing picks Lianxia up as a client, much to her joy. Meanwhile, BR has been dealing with a ton of fan hate from Mengji's fanbase. Lüxia takes the opportunity to give Mengji a bit of a face slap, as she has BR remove the post and make a comment that he's removing it because of harassment from Mengji's fans, which makes her look bad. Mengji has some difficulty with her agent, who is convinced that Mengji stole the story. Mengji suggests removing herself from the public eye, during which time she publishes more stolen stories. Lüxia lets her rise, as this will just make Mengji's fall all the more tragic. Lianxia rushes in and tells Lüxia that she has to go to a gathering with Qingxing, but she goes wearing casual clothes. When she gets there, she realizes that it's a formal event. Lüxia steps in and goes to a nearby clothing store and creates a formal dress herself. While she's busy, Mengji tries to seduce Qingxing but fails. Lüxia does some mild face slapping by calling Mengji out for her bad behavior, Mengji stalks off. At the event it's announced that one of P's stories will be made into a movie and that she'll be the lead actor. This makes Lüxia mad, as the story was originally written by a cancer patient who would use the funds to pay for their treatment as well as raise visibility for their disease. By stealing the story Mengji is effectively leaving the author without means to support themself. She has BR go pee and poo in P's food, which of course makes her sick. She vomits on an influential person in the acting world, ruining a potential connection.

    Lüxia has Lianxia transfer money to the cancer patient so that they won't die. She is also contacted by a paparazzo who offers to sell her pictures of Mengji messing around with the married costar [Chen Ge] of her film. The images are useless for now, but Lüxia has Lianxia buy the paparazzo's silence so that she can use him when the moment is right. She also wants to allow their relationship to heat up, which it does. Lüxia assists in this process to make things go along a little faster while also putting Mengji in Weibo's hot search for some nice photos, so she's put at ease. Lianxia wins a major prize and has become a media darling.

    The time has finally come to make more of a strike at Mengji and Chen Ge. The pair go to a haunted house and plan on banging in one of the rooms (classy), however Lianxia and Qingxing notice their arrival and use some of the props to scare them. Mengji flees half dressed and gets photographed by the public, harming her good girl image. Mengji assumes that Chen Ge set her up, so she gives the media an anonymous tip about him cheating. He confronts Mengji and they find out that neither was responsible for the haunted house incident. Lüxia approaches Chen Ge's wife and shows her videos of him cheating. Initially reluctant to believe them, Lüxia manages to persuade her to confront them publicly and take on a new movie role, as it will help her gain sole custody of their children. It's all set to happen at a big awards ceremony where both Mengji and Chen Ge will be present. Chen Ge and Mengji approach his wife with the intent of her helping them out, unaware that the wife is planning their downfall.

    At the awards ceremony Mengji is given an award and she invites the wife on stage to thank her for her help, assuming that she's going to do something nice. Instead the wife plays videos of Mengji cheating with Chen Ge, which completely ruins both of their reputations irreparably. The wife dumps Chen Ge and chastises Mengji before walking off. Afterwards, Mengji is dumped by her agent and loses all of her money and possessions, as no one wants to do business with her. She's forced to live on the streets. One night she sees Lianxia and begs her to take pity, hoping to use her as a way to regain her publicity. Lianxia refuses, as she doesn't want to help a plagiarist. She also notes that Chen Ge has gone into gay pornography in order to make money. Lüxia leaves the small world, as there's not much more to do. Lianxia and the Qingxing are good friends and are clearly interested in one another, however if they get together that should be up to them and not because Lüxia helped them.

    Waaaait....... This is speculation, but for real do you that kid truly was from the younger brother of the Emperor, and that cheating woman - isn't it? I think that pink-haired chick never loved the Emperor and only loved her man on the side. However, she can't stand to be humiliated because she has the taste of flying high, and the thought of falling so low is making her crazy. That's why she offed the Emperor and herself. I think the younger brother killed himself via poison. Also, the cheating couple was planning to off the Emperor slowly via another illness, and have the younger brother take his place?

    I feel like the art deteriorated after a few arc. The MC isn’t as good looking as the first arc anymore :unsure:

    Hope This Manhua is not romance like Quick Transmigration Cannon Fodder’s Record of Counterattacks. Prefer revenge and faceslapped over romance.

    Based on the title, I think it is not romance oriented :blobjoy::blobsweat:

    Edited: rather than adapted from novel, I think the novel is adapted as the novel raw stop at chapter 22 or the second arc is not finished yet

    There’s a little romance. It doesn’t hit you over the head with it but you get to see a love everyone wishes that they had. Also it’s short in the actress arc but with little to know drama. When I saw it I was like - I wish all romance stories were like this.

    I took peek at adapted novel. It is said in the arc 2, the original hope to have a true love (much to Su's horror :blob_grin::blob_grin:). But, I saw that the target (who actually love host much, that he chase the host into entertainment world) is really adorable (I hope I can see the translated version quickly). All blushed and shy haha. Yeah, that what I call good romance.

    bonus for the all purpose cute system rat, a scanner mode
