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?

05/5/13: change the posters for chap 6, 9, 12, 14, 15, 18, 25, 26, 27

Chapter 55: this story really screwed with my head, and left the darkness that aded throughout lingering in my thoughts. kudos to you author, for pulling off such a concept, i enjoyed it!
Chapter 1: oooh. my first time finally sitting down to read this. Here we gooooo~
It's that time of the year again where I have the urge to re-read this for the 6th time
Chapter 4: This story was one of the first I've ever read on this site and it's still one of the best! Twisted fairy tales are one of my favourite kinds of stories. Keep it up! :))
