When an ordinary grad student awakens in a strange world brimming with Qi, she realizes she's like a transmigrator from a cultivation novel. Also, she's apparently the Imperial Princess and supposedly her soul went on a journey involving a life on Earth.
Well, it's better than nothing after death, and there’s a whole new world to explore and study. With magic and sentient spirit animals!
But it's not all fun and games, and when it sinks in that she died and this is her life now, she questions what her own identity even means. And there's a hard road ahead of her, because being the heir apparent to the Empire is a heavy burden. Especially if you feel the need to make the world a better place (and well-intentioned megalomania is completely ethical, thank you!)
But she has to face a few other issues:
Her Mother is awesome-scary and hiding things.
Her special ability is nice, but there are stronger ones possible, and her siblings might get those.
She'd really like to get laid, but the hot maids are *not* helping.
Sects and barbarian invasions? Why does she have to do everything?
Note: This is a somewhat tongue-in-cheek take on a transmigration/xianxia novel. The world is a mix of Eastern and Western fantasy. The story will be more focused on characters than action (but not romance). Expect some mild cursing and gore.
