    4.7

    [Weekly Updates on Sunday] Born a curse, she was cast away from the royal family. But when the kingdom needed an alliance, she was the one called upon to marry. As the second son, he had no right to become heir. Yet in the face of war and politics, he was always the first commanded to fight for the country. “Whoever is wedded to the princess is destined to become emperor.” Somehow, fate brought them together, and the course of the empire thus changed forever. She became known as the most shameful seductress, purposefully tempting six emperors in a wild bid to maintain her lavish lifestyle. She once dreamt of becoming the century’s best medic; yet after a lifetime in the palace, she couldn’t save her own children from slaughter. He turned into the worst tyrant in Chinese history, knowingly sending millions to their graves in a blind attempt to pursue his frivolous dreams. He initially wanted to live a simple life; but under the pressure of power, he instead found himself using all those he loved as mere pawns. She thought she was fighting against destiny, but it turned out to be the ones she most trusted. He believed he was the one pulling on the strings, but in reality, he was unknowingly playing his own part in the script. They were unwilling puppets, each trying to break free from the invisible strings of fate. Only when the stage finally fell, it was to chaos. At the end of it all, she no longer knew if her tears were for him or the irony of it all. _____ Excerpt from Chapter 18: He finally stopped in front of me. “Can I trust you?” Subconsciously, something inside me willed me to nod. Perhaps it was the knowledge that I was to be bound to him until death. Or maybe it was the awareness of how this marriage was much more than a simple union between two people. He moved slowly, waiting for another nod of my approval before closing the gap further. “You’re a smart one, somehow seeing through most of my guises.” He reached out and gently caressed my cheeks. “True love doesn’t exist in the royal family, but it seems as if we are the perfect match for partnership.” He leaned in as if to kiss me, instead stopping short at eye level. “Help me put on my act.” _____ Beta Reader: PoeticPenguin _____ Cover: Manipulated by Photoshop but all photo credits to their original artists on Pinterest

PoeticPenguin: You’re right. I do see the disadvantages and advantages of going on a hiatus or doing less chapters. I will talk to jenji about it.

Don't give up on your love for writing because of college, which I did before coming back again. You just need to learn how to deal with time management but best of all is to stockpile. This is something I do on my semester breaks and then when college starts I focus on my studies then just edit my chapters before posting which is waaayy easier

Thank you for your advice again! I'm just trying to learn to better time manage by forcing myself to leave time to write. And thank you so much for still sticking to this! ^-^ View More

Lascria: Really enjoyed the chapter yet again! Don’t stress too much about writing if it is becoming more of a chore than enjoyable. Yes we would love to see regular updates but at the end of the day college really needs to be your priority and we need to respect that. Writing should be stress relief really, not an extra stress in and of itself. Personally I’m happy to wait however long is necessary.

Also, you’ll probably find that when exam and assignment time hits (if your college experience was anything like mine) that taking a break to write / think about something totally unrelated may give your brain the boost it needs to keep going and more importantly, to keep absorbing the information you’re feeding it.

I never quite got to the point of original writing but FanFiction kept me sane through both of my degrees by letting me change focus for a bit, I practically lived in the library pulling 14-15 hour study sessions during exam season... not to mention thesis research (still have nightmares about that honestly) and without switching gears every so often those sessions would have been utterly pointless. Just my two cents.

Looking forward to the next one!!

He’s sorta a brat in history Lolol, but it’ll be explained later ^-^

I think it’s a bit of a personal thing with just writing commitments. I started a version of this like three years ago and just got to like chapter six even though I was like I’ll write! So it’s more of a way to push myself ;-;

And Omi thank you so much for the recommendation 0.0 like actually thanks for sticking through with the sad quality of recent updates and the infrequent updates ;-; View More

yaoyueyi: omg an update!! :D this was a nice thing to see waking up.

yi qian is a little bit of a brat lol. he's a bit dislikeable from the start, but I hope that there's some reason/background/how he was raised that explains for how spoiled he is.

as for your author's note, I'm a bit confused?? bc everyone else in the comments seem like they're begging you to not drop but from what I read in the note, I interpreted that you're rec-ing for /us/ to drop the book if there are no daily updates? :0 so am I misinterpreting what you're saying or...?
anyways though, I don't particularly care for update speed bc quality > quantity is usually what I like :)) weekly updates sound great to me!

(and p.s. I rec-d this novel to my content editor for a feature so hopefully you've gotten a feature recently/will be getting a feature in the future! :D this novel deserves some quality exposure)

It’s getting better! Thanks for your advice!!! View More

Lascria: College gets to the best of us sometimes and it needs to be your priority, don’t feel you have to apologise for that. Going into college for the first time can be a culture shock and taking time to adjust to the new normal is essential. Work on finding your balance before anything else and don’t let yourself become run down with obligation. It’s sort of like learning to juggle, you start with one ball, then add a second and then a third when you have the rhythm down and are comfortable that you can handle it without dropping one. We can wait if we must for a story of this quality :)

Omi thank you so much!!!! Like reading this actually made my day ^-^ also super random but how was it being like a history graduate 0.0 View More

Lascria: What can I say? The reader in me loves this, the history graduate in me adores this and the aspiring writer in me is nearly dead with jealousy. Absolutely love this story so far and can’t wait to read more. The attention to detail in reconstructing a bygone era is probably my absolute favourite thing about this, simply because I know how much work and research must go into every single paragraph. Truly a little gem! Also absolutely love the title haha but that would be for personal reasons. :)
