    A Stepmother's Fairy Tale
    어떤 계모님의 메르헨

    Description:
    The iron widow, the spider widow, male hunter, the witch of Neuwanstein castle, the embarrassment of noble ladies....... These were all the words used to describe the Marchioness, Suri Van Neuwanstein. Despite receiving such criticism from the world, she raised her 'children', who were unrelated to her by blood and were old enough to be called her siblings. And finally, on the day of the first son Jeremy’s wedding, she felt that all her hard work had tied all the loose ends together. But she had been terribly mistaken. After hearing the message requesting her to not attend the wedding, she got caught up in an accident and died while leaving the castle. But when she opened her eyes, she woke up on the day of her husband's funeral, seven years ago. I refuse to suffer any more. I won’t live as I had in the past a second time!

    The translation is chapter 2 now, and MC still not yet turn back time. I wonder anyone knows the story? Where is the real mother of those children? Why MC chosen as the wife?​

    21. Does Jeremy have feeling for Shuri? CH.114 (S2 CH.49) goes more into detail how Jeremy feels (the manhwa is more detailed about this than the novel)
      • he never truly starts thinking of her as a mother, even when he moves on. he just accepts that this is their relationship, imposed by the legal situation. he will always think of her as someone special who is part of his family & a girl who deserved to move on with her life. He does addresses her as "mother" sometimes in a teasing way, but mostly in public because outside this is their only recognized relationship. in private he calls her by her name because at the end of the day, she is not really a mother, but a girl near his age. Cr. AdamantineW (1) (2)


    She's the late Empress and Theobald mother. She died in childbirth. She has a history and was childhood friends with Johannes, Albrecht (Duke; Nora father more info in #6) and of course the emperor. Each of them loved her but she was the emperor lover only and choosed him. Her death caused a lot of grieving for all three
    Johannes being sweet on Ludivika up until the moment she told him the news of her impending marriage with the emperor, he reacted violantly in a fit of anger and strangled her apparently (Albrecht has to kinda beat up the truth out of him) which is why Ludovika refused to have him at her wedding.
    Cr. AdamantineW on Twitter
    There's two reasons; one is mainly because Shuri resembles Ludovika, second is because her resemblance to Ludovika would benefit Shuri on the politcal scene eventually – and he was right on that point, because the Duke of Nuremberg and the Emperor both showed a soft spot for Shuri in the novel/manhwa.
    Cr. AdamantineW on Twitter
    Wasn't just necessarily him needing someone take care for his childern.
    No, Jeremy does not continue wedding the with Ohara/Ohera in the first timelime due to Shuri death, nor was it mention he married in the first timeline after.
    that is true, After reading a novel. The female lead had Dissociative amnesia which occurs when a person blocks out certain events, often associated with stress or trauma, leaving the person unable to remember important personal information. Which is exactly what our female lead did.
    Cr. Bri2415
    Johannes was manipulative. He never got physical with her except grabbing her wrist (happens in CH.96 in manhwa). But he was vebal and emotionally abusive.
    Cr. Plumpuppeach
    Her name is Diana, she has black hair and blue eyes, shes a relative to Nora. Sadly we don't know they fell in love nor how they met but Jeremy marries her when he's 27 (near the end of the last side story) and its not an arranged marriage. No mention of any kids
    He marries Ohara/Ohera, they have one daughter together, the daughter name is Anabelle, she's blonde with green eyes.
    Note: Novel and Manhwa Ohara are quite different.
    No Ohara did not baby trap Elias in the first or second timline. In the first timeline they barely met each other. In the second both grew feelings then begin dating.
    He has a son with an unknown/unnamed women, so he's illegitimate and his son is terrified of Nora and Jeremy. I don't remember but one of them accidentally made the poor child cry once

    Why did she have all those rumors said about her?
    Why wasn't she invited to the wedding
    Did the kids she raised hated her all this time
    How was their reaction when she died in an accident
    How exactly did she die
    Why was she in the castle
    Was the son marrying a princess

    All those questions except for the last 3 are answered in the prologue. (She died falling down a flight of stairs I believe. Seemingly a complete accident.) <- This one's also wrong, sorry. She was killed by bandits.

    [It looks like they didn't invite her because they really did hate her. <- Okay, I was wrong on that one. Judging from JUST the prologue though, it looked that way. Apparently they stopped hating her a while before the wedding & figured it out.]

    Reasons why they hated her:
    She was literally around their age when she married their dad for a huge sum of money even though they're still grieving over their own mom's death (apparently he married her because she resembled his wife & thus treated her well but made her promise to protect his kids/household).
    So they're already upset with her (& probably grossed out) & probably went to their relatives for comfort, only to get brainwashed by them. The dad then asks for her on his deathbed & not for his kids, which makes them even more upset. Then after he dies & the kids are reeling from the loss of both their blood parents, she kicks out all the (scheming) relatives or cuts off ties with them & has affairs with nobleman or noblemen (earning her the rep of a golddigging harlot) to (probably) use them as pawns & power to protect the household.

    Of course the kids don't know this (because they're kids who grew up sheltered & naive while MC had her dreams broken from day 1 & lived in pretty shitty circumstances), so this just makes them hate her even more, especially since MC keeps insisting that they properly call her mother in public, which is probably kinda gross to them since she's THEIR age. :blob_coughblood: (Again - not her fault, she has to assert her authority & legal rights as their mother to protect them in public). Since she kept them from any real suffering (although all of her protection did emotionally damage them in the process, what with everyone thinking that they had an overcontrolling golddigging slut for a stepmom), they never experienced any real hardships/betrayals & thus they don't appreciate what she's done for them.

    The prologue shows that they eventually figured out that she was protecting them & went to apologize to her, but it was too late (since she died).

    Hidden plot type of situation. If i recall correctly, she was from a noble family that was either working to destabalize/manipulate the siblings.
    The eldest (Brat 1), and the rest of his siblings had actually realized by then that Stepmother was doing her best by them and prtecting them. They were planning to surprise her by finally calling her mother and giving her respect in a grand way, which is why he dragged out his wedding prep. When Stepmother comes up dead, he is devastated like his siblings, and out of the woodworks come their relatives trying to get a slice of pie they never made. Eventually, Brat 1 realizes that his fiancee's somehow apart of this and s*** goes down. In the first life. That's all I could understand.

    And how about in second life? Will there any romance between Brat 1 and stepmother or their relationship getting better? How about the stepmom, will she has any lover and happy end?

    Sorry for the questions, but I really curious

    There was a lot, but MTL Korean/Hangul is not my forte (read: :blobsalt: my brain). The most I gathered, she still protected them but did so more tactfully and made it known to them that she was protecting them. I think Brat 1 was low-key in love with Stepmother, but I cannot tell bc my brain...

    It's a big NOPE on both sites. Couldn’t seem to find them. Will continue to look into it.

    Really looking forward to the translations, Korean just doesn't go through google as well as other languages IMHO.
    From what I gather from its Korean wiki it seems like there's some drama with the MC's family: her brother's a playboy and seemed to have gotten involved in running a gambling house? And the father was an alcoholic gambler himself, he tried to fight someone and ends up losing his balance, hits his head on an iron spike, and dies. :blobunsure: But take it with a big grain of salt, its 80% gibberish.
    I think the age gap between the oldest child and the MC is 2 years.
