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?

Just finished re-reading this story and Cirque du Macabre for like the 100th time and I never get tired of it, if this was turned into a real novel after getting revised over and all the spelling and grammar errors fixed, I would totally buy it always love your stories!

Chapter 55: This story is freaking amazing! I couldn't say anything. How could you remember all the fairytales? And those specifics details, it's really amazed me. I've read hundreds of fanfics here, but i never saw a detailed piece of art like this. I'm speechless

Chapter 4: Thef*ck? This story is so... I don't know how to say it. I'm speechless. This story included so many characters, and yet it's written beautifully. How could you do that? And why i didn't notice this story before?
