    Summary

    Most humans have no idea that a dark and deadly underworld, filled with magic and monsters, exists.

    They wander through life blissfully ignorant of the supernatural world around them.

    Tessa Kwon is different.

    Thanks to a unique set of abilities, Tessa has managed to steer clear of the underworld most of her life. But that all changes the night the most dangerous vampire in Seoul discovers her hidden powers and decides to use her as a tool to find one of his missing clan members.

    As if that’s not bad enough, Tessa believes she’s cursed. All her life, men, have been drawn to her—some to the point of sickly obsessions.

    Underworlders, it seems, are not immune to this curse, and now she’s caught the attention of some of the biggest villains in the city.

    Neck deep in an investigation only she can solve, Tessa quickly makes as many new allies as she does enemies.

    Her biggest problem is staying alive long enough to decide which side she is truly on.

    Summary

    Five years out of prison, Byleth thought that she could leave behind the past and move on with her life. However, the world is not nearly as forgiving as her father had been before his death. The wrongful accusation levied against her ten years ago still haunts her to this day, and it still gives her endless anguish.

    Then, as if to mock her, a strange boy that looks just like her old student asks her for a story. He calls himself The Wizard and then transforms the world around her into a place called The Forest. In there, Byleth meets three other unfortunate people who were also kidnapped by this so-called "wizard". The objective seems to make them reenact fairytales. But why? Who are the other three stuck with her? How can they stop The Wizard? And... can Byleth ever be freed from the past?

    Summary

    "- É a hora da bruxa - sussurrou Adele, baixinho, e fez sinal para que eu me abaixasse quando um dos encapuzados parou em frente a loja, esperou alguns segundos, viu que luz alguma iluminaria o vidro e continuou andando.

    Nenhuma figura a mais apareceu, apenas aquelas duas, e elas prosseguiram a caminhada até virar uma esquina e sumir em direção a outra rua. Adele contou o movimento dos ponteiros, e quando os principais marcaram três e meia, as portas de cada residência foram abertas, e um grande número de pessoas, também usando capas, passou para a calçada, encarando-se como se compreendessem que caminho deveriam seguir juntas. Havia famílias inteiras saindo, de mãos dadas, principalmente, com alguém na frente do cortejo carregando uma lamparina para iluminar mais claramente as curvas que precisariam tomar para chegar até os fundos, que era para onde iriam, sem dúvida alguma, festejar. "

    É apenas inevitável: ou recebe-se o amor das Irmãs do Destino ou sua fúria desenfreada e violenta.

    Summary

    After accidentally running afoul of a witch in Antigua, Tom finds himself afflicted with a terrible curse, the first step toward breaking which is to find himself a wife; the last person he has in mind as a potential bride is his indigent, creepmouse cousin, Fanny Price, but when he realises his family is trying to pressure her into marrying Henry Crawford (and she apparently doesn't want to), he sees an opportunity for a mutually beneficial arrangement.

    If she marries him instead, and breaks his curse, he'll protect her from unwanted advances elsewhere and provide for her financially for the rest of her life.

    Fanny accepts his offer, despite several vehement objections, truly that desperate to be safe from Mr. Crawford and to help her afflicted cousin.

    There is one rule by which Fanny must abide, but Tom imagines he's in safe enough hands with her.

    After all, Fanny, trustworthy and constant, would never break faith with anyone, never flout anybody's rules. (But what if, one night, she does?)

    Summary

    Stories may vary from children's book to other fictional stories. Might be darker than the original. The added details are intentional so that it will confuse you as to what the original story is. I might add or remove details from the story but I will try to have the main details still there.

    Summary

    Tanya wakes up for a second time in an orphanage, as a Callowan in the Dread Empire of Praes. Will she finally reach her peaceful retirement in a fantasy world of storybook heroes and villains?
    When her very reality conspires to create interesting narratives according to the whims of good and evil gods?
    Will she become a villain to be cast down in the third act or will her story have a happy end?
    Crossover between "A Practical Guide to Evil" and "Youjo Senki".

     

    So for those unfamiliar with APGtE, it is a web novel set in a fantasy world where certain people receive "Names" (ranging from White Knight to Bard to Dread Empress) that turns the Named into characters of a tale. They are aware of this fact and know that Creation transforms their lives into stories (like "Hero defeats Disney Villain" and so on).
    However, the rest of the setting is very realistic, without traditional fantasy tropes, outside of the stories created by the Named. Think of GoT mixed with self-aware fairy tales.

    Summary

    James makes an impossible journey to an impossible hut on an impossible island, so that an impossible man might grant him an impossible wish.

    Summary

    While the Land of Fairy Tales is a wondrous place, it is most often an entirely predictable one. This story is no different...at least not at first. Because our seven young heroes will definitely have some loose ends to tie up once the witch is gone, don't you think?

    Summary

    Dazai always found fairy tales to be silly. He scoffs whenever he comes across storybooks and sees all these ‘creatures’ depicted in the most comical of ways—with big eyes and kind words and bright smiles as they go about having adventures with their human friend. There’s some morals thrown in, along with all the singing. God, there’s always so much singing. These stories? Always, always had a happy ending.

    Bullshit. All of them.

    Those ‘creatures’—they’re not kind. They don’t sing. They don’t have bright red hair and glistening blue tails, and they certainly don’t cradle you close while they save you from drowning.

    You know what they do? They scream in your mind while destroying your ship through the sheer force of their tail and deadly sharp fins. They snarl in your face exposing the most terrifying teeth and their fury manifests as angry red swirls mapping their body. Your survival? Depends purely on a whim.

    Dazai should know. He’s met the merfolk before, after all.
