Chapter 72: Interlude III: Lady Patricia

I was the daughter of a rather well-to-do merchant trader, whose main business is moving the stock of others about and exchanging money.

To be honest, it’s not unexpected for a woman with such a background to end up the wife of someone with some sort of status, but being selected to be the etiquette instructor and an attendant of the Earl’s Lady herself was something I had never imagined before in my life. (more…)

Chapter 57: Wolf Boss Mk II

One of the main problems of going into an elite dungeon solo is that it takes so damn long to get anywhere.

The enemies are tough and you have to fight your way through every one of them while trying to navigate an unfamiliar area – it’s enough to make your head spin. (more…)

Episode 97

Merumo and I reached Gnomefield and reported about our work in Nokking Hill.
Our employees that were working in Gnomefield reported on making the windmills and pump.
They said that the windmill I thought of making was raising water up, little by little.
It’s just, although it was expected that the amount drawn up wouldn’t be much, if the wind stops the windmill will also stop.
Ashley-san said she wanted to try out all of the windmills I had drawn up designs for.
I was thinking we’d help out, but I was refused with, “Your salary won’t go up even if we had you help out more than this.”
“It’s alright. With my husband and children, we’ll have enough work. It may just be a little bit at a time, but this village will prosper.” (more…)

Chapter 128: Precious items can be more of a curse than a blessing at times

When I had filled the dagger to a degree that would have killed many a normal mage, it gave a little shudder in my hand, like it wanted to break free.

I loosened my grip a little, expecting … well, I’m not really sure what I was expecting.

The dagger seemed to hover for a second, as if trying to float, but then it fell towards the ground.

“Uoops. Almost dropped it.” (more…)

The Danger Passes

he sky was beginning to brighten when the hole was done being repaired.
It was impressive that, despite everyone being completely exhausted, they laughed with delight as they were bathed in the sun’s light. The night they had prepared themselves for death had passed, and the sun that rose is beautiful, so no matter who it was, everyone was so fascinated that they were unable to speak. (more…)

Chapter 70: Interlude I: Lysander

The first memory I have is that of being bought by the Shadowmarks.

I was a ‘slave’ in the truest sense of the word, a captive with no control over his life.

Although most of Valed has eradicated this form of slavery, until even the term itself simply refers to purchased labor instead of the purchase of a person himself, there are still dark waters in this country. (more…)

Quick Transmigration as Cannon Fodder Dressed in a White Lotus Halo? Do. Not. Want!

Cai Lifang doesn’t hate white lotuses, but she is the least compatible woman to be dressed in a white lotus halo!
Traveling into different Story Worlds, Cai Lifang is tasked with helping unfortunate cannon fodders live acceptable lives, but this white lotus halo … Come on, System, giving a two-bit background character a white lotus halo? Are you TRYING to break the plot apart?

System: As the Host’s System, I am only assisting the Host in accomplishing Missions.

Cai Lifang: … Fine, you’re unreasonable, I’m unreasonable, everyone’s unreasonable!

  • MC, ML, FL – main character, male lead, female lead
  • quick transmigration – a genre where the main story consists of many different stories, where the MC world hops from story to story, usually taking the place of a character that was originally from that story’s plotline in order to change the plot in some way or other
  • system – personification of a story mechanic that directly forces the MC to do as the author pleases (this may be my personal interpretation)
  • halo – basically the Chinese term for plot armor
  • white lotus – an innocent, pure, kind, lovable woman whose traits may also include naivety and appearing weak, often inciting the desires and protective instincts of others, allowing her to often get through disasters completely unscathed. Basically, the innocent Marysue
  • a “white lotus” – aka green tea bitch; a woman who pretends to be a white lotus in order to manipulate others, often actively scheming to harm others by relying on her influence on more powerful people. Basically a ‘two-faced bitch’

Chapter 1: College Students Should Study!

Cai Lifang opened her eyes slowly, then bolted upright.

“F***!”

Her head throbbed painfully, to the point where her hot temper had come out despite her usual custom of squashing it.

… Usual custom?

Cai Lifang frowned, cradling her head. (more…)
