Summary       :


  • New readers, don't read the story's comments. Spoilers are everywhere there. 
  • Heed the warning. I’m serious about them.
  • I may do horrible things, even to my bias. It doesn’t mean I’m going to do horrible things to them per se, but I just want you to note down that if it’s for the sake of the story, I don’t mind doing anything drastic. So now, I apologize in advance if I "ruin" your bias.
  • Don’t complain if the pairings I choose in the end is not to your liking. Don’t take it for granted that I will do my usual OTP either. Again, I’m the type of writer who’s not afraid to write cruel things about my OTP.

Little children, what fairy tale do you want to hear tonight? 





1st Teaser

2nd Trailer:

3rd Trailer:




Jessica returned to South Korea after she received an invitation to  Seoul’s most prestigious, high class society. Der Märchenclub, club for the elite, brotherhood of the wealthiest heir and heiress.

It was a world of fairytale to the others, but it was an absurd, sugar-coated one for her.


Where Cinderella cut her toes...

[the red sole, the red heels, blood in the glass slipper]

Where Jack was eaten by the Giant...

[chomp, chomp, chomp. You taste good, Jack. You taste good]

Where the Fairy Dust remained an illusion...

[you can fly, Peter… Just jump off that cliff… you can fly!]

Where Rapunzel hung herself from the tower...

[oh Rapunzel, Rapunzel. Tie your golden hair around your thin neck]


Oh, and Alice, dear Alice...

Can you escape this rabbit’s hole?

Chapter 16: Actuallyyyy i've been guessing about this relationship between Donghar and YoonA. And when she mentioned about Jessica being able to guess their role, i immediately though of the role which turned out to be correct (trying not to give spoilers in the comment section xD)
Chapter 13: Yayyyyy SunSun!!!!! <3333
Chapter 9: Just strted reading this and i am doing my best not to read comments (which I usually do) but so far.. I just hope there will be SunSun. I see their names on yhe foreword thoughhhh.. So i trust they will be there! >.<
Just finished re-reading this book for the 100th time and I still can't believe this isn't a book nor is there any book similar to this online or published to satisfy my random reading cravings. Would you recommend any published novels you enjoy? Now time to re read Cirque du Macabre

Chapter 55: I never hesitate to reread this story. It's well written and I love the turn it took with the different childrens' stories. I can't believe this isn't a book! 10/10

Also, I have to give a huge thanks to this story for helping me discover Agatha Christie. One of those recommendation shops said this reminded them of And Then There Were None. Of course, I picked up the book and consumed it in a day. I'm planning on reading The Murder of Roger Ackroyd next. You have indirectly lead me to a mine of literary gold!

I absolutely loved this story. It has left me in a sort of empty state where I cannot fully enjoy fan fiction without comparing it to this one. I loved the mystery, I loved the fairy tale references, I loved the fact that the antagonist had a motivation for his/her doings (trying to avoid spoilers here), and I loved the complexity. I never was into super generation before (I've only really followed YG groups in the past), but this story has had me going online and looking into Jessica and Heechul and others. My favorites here were the orphans, Kibum, and of course, Heesica. I pulled an all nighter for this story and found myself reading Alice in Wonderland the next day just to try to get one more taste. If only I could rewind time, erase my memories, and reread this just to get the feeling of shock upon finding out the antagonist again. Thanks for writing this. You have given birth to a masterpiece.

Chapter 55: Why?? Just why did I found this story now? I spend my etirely day to finish the story ^^
dark-romance, psychology, and twisted fairy tale genre are always my cup of tea.
