    lmao, there is a lot of "i'll take their place!" situations.

    omg that "divorce after one year" is a benchmark countdown of how quick they'll catch feelings and then distance themselves from each other because of the contract end (that's coming up soon) and not communicating with the other about their feelings.

    The original girl used to be like a block of wood before the female MC transmigrated into her body.
    This concubine didn't mean that.
    A tiger father will not beget a dog son.
    This ...(insert person name or a narcissistic word) will make you regret your actions.
    One won't slap a smiling face or something similar.
    The female MC's voice is like an oriole.
    He/she vowed revenge.

    A few other common sentences in Chinese novels:
    He/she couldn't believe their eyes/ears or what they had just seen/heard.
    Everybody was anxiously waiting for the Imperial Examination Results.
    The eunuch didn't react to the emperor's/wangye's words. He knew at this moment he should decrease his presence so as to not let the fire burn onto his head.
    The xxx was a fickle man in love.
    The consort wanted to rip this woman who didn't know her place into shreds.
    He/she wanted to tear that mouth that spewed words without another thought.
    The emperor was afraid of the power and prestige of the military general, so he had him killed by colluding with others. (I don't understand how can a political bigwig not realise the ramifications of playing with one's country and people in such plots)
