    OMG, I LOVE THIS THREAD AHAHAHA
    anyways...
    everyone forgot to mention:
    "V-shaped/tiger back" together with the slender waist and long-legs
    "like a (gust of) wind would blow him away" for your sickly ML/MC
    "tender skin (illusion of) that you can pinch out water" to go with the jade complexion/bones
    Almond/cat eyes in addition to peach blossom, or rabbit-references (I have a mild fear of rabbits, so this really puts me off, sis!)
    Delicate collarbone/wrists and unusually popular elegant neck referenced in odd scenarios like in the middle of a crisis -
    white, tiny feet ..............

    - "If you touch her or go near her again, I won't go easy on you/ I won't let you go" lmao i find this so cringey it always appears when the damsel is in distress and the knight in shining armor saves her lol
    - "I'll just live a comfortable life away from the main leads~"
    - "What situation is this?!"
    - "I'm screwed"

    I actually heard someone said something similar.

    "If you make her cry, I won't go easy on you!"
    I was in HS, and even back then that line was pretty embarassing I got second hand embarassment from it.

    "White jade like skin." (in my brain jade was always green, when did it turn white?)
    "Cold as ice." (I like the cold, but not the cold ML)
    "I didn't see Mount Tai." (after hearing this more than 3 times in one novel it becomes unamusing)
    "Phoenix eyes." (had to google that one)
    "The black eyes were like abyssal pools, wanting to suck in her soul."

    Idk if u guys have read Martial Peak - but it has one of the funniest uses of mosquitoes

    "It was so slick that if a mosquito were to go on, it would have a sprained ankle"
    Then the translator writes in brackets (This author has major issue with mosquitoes)

    IT goes on: "...Kai Yang was thankful. But even a small mosquito has flesh."
    "...could only earn him two contribution points, but mosquito meat is still meat"
    "...sleeping outside wouldn't do them any harm, there were still a lot of mosquitoes...an unfathomable amount of mosquitoes had bitten them and drank their blood while they dreamt."


    Translator then goes : "(Here come da mozzies)"
    I can't with this novel lmao that last quote had no connection to the plot it was just added in.

    If you are an iceberg CEO, then:
    "En."
    If you are a beauty, then you must have "watery eyes".
    And I noticed that CN novels feel the need to talk about that "white teeth" XD

    This had me giggling so hard. Who knew mosquitoes could be used in that way.

    CN novels and obsession with whiteness. White skin is also a thing.

    The most used lines in the novel I translated include:
    - cold
    - soft-hearted
    - pursed lips
    - fortunately
    - past life
    - that man in red
    - like thrown into a cauldron of boiling oil
