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 14: like i said in my previous comment, i think choi siwon or the chois are primary culprits for this club murder that's happening. this thing with the kims is a whole different story, i guess.

Chapter 13: asghfhaald i knew the taeyeon was the nightingale. but only because she's like the only snsd member i haven't seen and she has a really good voice y'know so it fits her somehow. i have my suspicions about the circus master. is he siwon? or a non-suju member hmmm also they mentioned a 'boss' so there's really someone up there controlling this game ahh this fic makes me so excitedddd

Chapter 10: gosh that cover of seohyun above looked so eerie but anw so seohyun is perhaps... sleeping beauty? and hmmm i can see some donghae and jessica development but donghae is still mysterious to me. dunno if he's being serious with sica or not but i hope not because that would make the story interesting lmao. imagine the betrayal after sica has already trusted him.

Chapter 9: yoona is depressed. kinda knew that but i'm still curious about her relationship with donghae. would also want to know more about her. last scene gave me the creeps. the details and descriptions of the writing makes it easier for readers to imagine the scenes in the story. i love the way you write.

Chapter 8: heh heechul is alive. dunno why jessica doesn't believe kibum that this is really the club's doing because duh, it's obvious but kibum is a weird as heck too. he needs to gain jessica's trust first. there are some hints of donghae and his feelings for sica here. i dunno what to feel about it but donghae obviously has something unfinished with yoona and i want to know what it is. there are still so many characters that haven't been introduced fully so i'm still looking forward to them.

Chapter 7: so yoona, donghae, and jessica are definitely friends before and something happened among the three of them hmmm and aasdgfhjd heechul likes yoona? that's what lover boy implies right? but gah, heechul was found stabbed! too bad for him i guess.

Chapter 6: i can feel that yoona and donghae tension from my computer screen asdfhasjds they are one of my fave ships so i hope there's more...? two of them are seriously so mysterious and i'd like to get more background on what made them that way. both donghae and yoona are such complex and mysterious characters that as the story progresses, jessica seems to be the only normal character in this story.

Chapter 5: amazing how we're only five chapters in and yet the personality and trait of the characters are already determined. like before it was revealed that siwon was the one talking, i already knew it was him because of the way his voice was described. i think it helps that most of the characters here are loosely based on their real life personas on screen. makes the story much more enjoyable specially if you're a fan of suju and snsd. love it.
