Yes, the subject line refers to Schemes of a Beauty. More specifically, the conversation Lady Assassin/General have in ep 8, where she tells him that when he was binding her wound he saw her breasts and in her culture it means she's now his wife.

Bwuh??????????? Guys who go to hookers must then have a lot of wives.

Also, she uses the fact that he doesn't immediately jump to marry her as proof that despite his "to me, all lives are important" he still cares about status. Once again, bwuh? I think (a) he doesn't know you at all and I am sure that is giving him as much pause as any status issue (b) it's not as if he stipped you to leer at you. Plus he had no idea of your weird customs (c) caring about lives is still not the same as seeing everyone as good enough to be your spouse. I care about the crazy homeless guy at the corner in the sense of not wanting him dead and wanting him to have food and a place to live, doesn't mean I want to marry him.

Anyway, as you can tell, I am working my way through SoaB.

I admit I am not too interested in the main character - she's too perfect in her scheming (for evil Dowager Empress, no less, boo!!!) and not damaged enough. Plus, is it me or does she look older than her supposed OTP? (Which is fine, but a bit odd for a period drama).

But I continue to ship assassin/general rabidly. Now, talk about a tough yet messed-up heroine and hot OTP. Both times they met involved swords and wounds, too. And she's using/manipulating him only she's starting to fall for him. Mmmmmm. I sort of want to have a cut with just their scenes. As it is, I skip to them.
