  1. Thank you so much for all your hard work translating this wonderful novel! I thought I would leave a link to my relationship diagram here since its a character reference page.

    The relationship diagram is kept updated to that last translated chapter and might have spoilers if you have not read to the most recent translated chapter.

  2. Err.. isn’t the pinyin for 罗 spelled Luo? Also, you sometimes uses Rou Qiu instead of Ruo Qiu in the translations 🙂

    Crown Prince’s name is Fu Xiu Yan

    And this point keeps bugging me: where is the 4th xiaojie and 3rd-6th shaoye? The daughter might be simply glossed over, but what about the sons? Since Shen Xin only has Shen Qiu, and Shen Wan doesn’t have any sons, are all of them fathered by Shen Gui? But we haven’t heard (and won’t hear) of them in the story.

    • This is just my speculation, but the other young masters and young lady are probably children of Shen Gui from his other concubines. Because it was mentioned previously that Shen Wan only has Chen Ruo Qiu as a wife and that they only have Shen Yue as child.

      The other kids were probably all killed by Ren Wan Yun. There’s a hint somewhere back when Wan Yiniang first appeared, that Wan Yiniang has some ability to have born and raised Shen Dong Ling despite Ren Wan Yun’s cruelty.

      • Yes, just like there is no Fourth Young Lady, Third to Sixth Young Master must have died along with Fourth Young Lady. It seems all the unfortunate sons and daughter were fathered by Shen Gui and fall victim over their mothers and Ren Wan Yun’s conflict of interest.


  3. Thanks for the character list! I love reading your translations~

    Just dropped by here to say, I was reading up on Chinese dates and found out that Shen Miao’s maids’ names seem to be from the 24 solar terms (I was reading the list and found some of the names very familiar haha)! Idk if you’ve mentioned it before, but I found it interesting hehe
    Jing Zhe, Gu Yu, Bai Lu and Shuang Jiang (

  4. this is my second chinese novel so remembering names and terms is really hard for me.. but still, the story’s really good so i’ll have to endure it!


    • Right!? And all the other young masters, since there’s a first, second, and then SEVENTH?? Like what happened to literally all the others??


      • I’m pretty sure the author just made a mistake and put shen miao as the fifth lady bc she is the fifth child and same with shen yuan bo
        1 shen qiu
        2 shen yuan
        3 shen quing
        4 shen yue
        5 shen miao
        6 shen dong ling
        7 shen yuan bo

        Even if it says sdl is older than shen miao the author just didn’t think about it maybe
        That’s how I understood it when I was reading the novel
