Imagine 5 chapters to put 1 flag in place. 1 complete month of waiting and no remarkable plot unfoilding at the same time.
Yeah... Although at first the empress's image looked just fine, but by how thin the story is watered it's really hard to fathom how many years it will take for the heroine to reach the first story milestone while deceiving the reather through countless idle non-existing plot-devices. I mean, I do enjoy those idle moments if used well and not to often but this is just on a whole new level. It's a money grab at those who try to support authors and pay for new chapters. MONEYGRAB.
A no no in more than multiple ways.
