Author: Mao Niao

Status: 71 Chapters (Complete)


Ling Xiao was secretly in love with a girl named Mo Qi; because of an accident, they both crossed into the ancient times.

Mo Qi who was preinstalled with the Mary Sue halo, in these ancient times, walked to the summit with a golden finger.

However, Ling Xiao continued to be exploited by Mo Qi.

After he no longer had any values to exploit, he soon became a pitiful cannon fodder.

The heavens decided to take pity on Ling Xiao.

And gave Ling Xiao an opportunity for rebirth.

After rebirth, he vowed that all his enemies would repay him with a debt of blood!

However, why have all these enemies of his, fallen into the mode of cutting their heads open?

“Hey, are you really that unremarkable person who used to follow behind Mo Qi?”

“So this dance was originally danced by you, sigh…”

“You are obviously a man, yet you move me so much.”

“Enough! Since you have taken the initiative to provoke me, then you must concentrate on me!”

Ling Xiao expressed: If you want to counterattack, then counterattack. As long as your golden finger is bigger than Mo Qi’s.

But how did Mo Qi’s Mary Sue halo end up in his body! He is still a straight man who likes beauties! He definitely, definitely doesn’t want to turn bent!

    • K.K. says:

    • SnowTime says:

      Nope! I downloaded all the raws on another site too >.>;;

      • asdf says:

        hi, can I know the site where you downloaded the raws? I can’t find raws anywhere except on the official website ? thanks!

        • SnowTime says:

          In the danmeila link I posted in one of the comments

  2. strikingSOSHI says:

    i dont get it.

    I tot he was supposedly dead? And then was actually alive as he woke up inside the purified chamber.

    Uhh? Or maybe… Uhmm. H-he died then got revived time travel back where he was supposed to be castrated?

    Well. It was confusing due to lack of info lol. Maybe, it is like that ah?

    • SnowTime says:

      Yep, he died, traveled back in time and revived from when he was first entering the palace ?

      • malyphom says:

        Hi there. I just came across this novel and read chapter 1. Wondering if there is a prequel to this that I need to read first?

        • SnowTime says:

          Nah, there isn’t a prequel. The setting is just that XD

  3. puppie luver says:

    Why can’t we read chapter 6? The chapter link is clickable, but it requires a password

    • SnowTime says:

      It’s a teaser cliff that’s also not edited, I made them for fun. Just scroll past the comments, I put the password on the sidebar

      • puppie luver says:

        Thanks for the reply, but which comment section? I didn’t see one under chapter 6. Is it on the main page?

      • puppie luver says:

        Ignore my previous comment lol I found it. Thanks so much; sorry for bothering you! 🙂

        • SnowTime says:

          No problem at all~ I exist to answer questions XD

  4. Diana ton says:

    Can I please get the other site links to continue with the romance!?!?!

    • SnowTime says:

      …..? I don’t get the question…. you mean the raws?

      • Diana Ton says:

        Yes, please. I got the gist of it with the translation but I am so excited that I can’t stop reading it. Is there something that I can do besides buying the VP section? Thank you so much!

        • SnowTime says:

          It just that the chapter numbers don’t exactly match up :p

      • Diana Ton says:

        Thank you so much!!! You are the best! If there is something that you need help, please allow me!!! Thank you!

  5. lorenzo86 says:

    sniff I can’t find the password is this project stil ongoing

    • SnowTime says:

      It’s under FAQ, Karma is almost done with editing 6 ? Password is Lalala though

  6. m says:

    So… was he castrated in his previous life?

  7. Vilk says:

    Craving so much more of this!
    It’s so hard to find the ‘right’ stories for the right time, yet am still hungry for more! Thank you for your hard work!
    //waiting impatiently patiently for the next portion//

  8. Gilbert says:

    I been wondering this for a while now, who’s on the novel cover?

    • SnowTime says:

      Ling Xiao? I always imagine he would look something like that xD
      i imagine the Emperor to be a bit more manly -3-

      • raven says:

        I thought he’s the Emperor…. That expression….

        • SnowTime says:

          I agree on the expression… but in the end, the cover is a picture found from the internet and cropped sooo xD
          Might be either, idk. Maybe he is the Emperor since he’s dressed in yellow ?
          I just think he’s a bit slim~ more Ling Xiao to me~

      • raven says:

        And that snake….

  9. raven says:

    Senseeeei, why so many links? To ‘Page not found’? (pout, folded ears, twitching whiskers)

    • SnowTime says:

      So I could forget about updating the toc for the next couple chapters lel

  10. pockydot says:

    What days is this story updated? From chapter 34 on I mean.

    • SnowTime says:

      At random. Basically whenever I’m done ?

  11. Fuku says:

    Excuse me ,i don’t understand why there are links to the chapters 21-49 ? I check the chapter 21 and in it there were many lines in Chinese with English ? Can you explain me ? Is this all the chapter or is it incomplete? (No se si me entendiste porque mi ingles no es muy bueno o.o ? )

    • SnowTime says:

      It all unedited chapters.

    • SnowTime says:

      21-35 are complete while 36-49 with one line teasers are place holders until I finish it.

  12. najj says:

    Are the 45 up chapters no translation yet?
    Thanks fr translatiiing?

    • SnowTime says:

      Nope, in progress

  13. najj says:

  16. Angel says:

    • SnowTime says:

      Just my own drawn ones o3o

  17. Bell says:

    I found your story on wattpad by someone named SumireAlice. I know that you are the original poster so… should I report her or her story? If you want to check if it’s copied right off of you search up tpotcfc. I’m not sure if the stories that she had posted are completely genuine if this one belongs to her.

    • SnowTime says:

      There’s a lot of people copying other people’s novel and posting on wattpad… I’m too tired to report anymore

  18. Zhamme says:

    m(_ _)m

  20. DraconisQuest75 says:

    I love it that you marked the snu snu parts!!!

  21. Niko says:

    Hello, did you give permission to repost this translation to a certain person on Wattpad?

    • SnowTime says:


  22. Lulu Britannia says:

    im really into reading some novels these days and i started reading this today since someone suggested this to me, I Really love the story <3

  23. Ayame85 says:


    I just started reading your novel, I really liked it, just one thing that bothers me and I don’t know if it only happened to me but when i click on the next chapter link, I often get to the spam page where they congratulate you for winning Amazon or Walmart or whatever giftcard. And I can not even hit the back button to go back to this site, all I can do us close the tab and enter this website link all over again.
    I just want to know if I can avoid this by doing something like registering to this website or something.
    I really like this site and love your works it’s just frustrating that I have to encounter this kind of scam as on your site.
    Thank you for your attention.
