Due to a Mishap, I Gave the King a Love Potion to Drink and I Became Queen

Description

Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

Due to circumstances, Iris needed to get married quickly. She only had one chance to capture the man in her sights.

At the Royal Ball, armed with a love potion that could manipulate body and mind, she aimed for a quiet and sombre earl.

Alas! The King, Ernest, drank the fruit wine she had dosed with the potion, and then confessed his love for her before the guests of the ball!

He proposed to her under the spell of the love potion, and became rather forceful!

Is what was to follow, a sweet married life or was it to be tainted by lies?

Hooollllyy sh*t. I made an account JUST to review this and say- don't bother. The story itself is nice and fun and smutty- but HOLY sh*t the translator's commentary. You legitimately can not get through even a paragraph without at least 4 interjections, some even sentences long, right in the middle of the smut scenes- some snark comments that the translator thinks is clever or that for some reason the readers would actually want to hear despite the fact that you're there for the story, not commets that are typically... more>> degrading the characters and plot. Chpt11-2, which isn't a particularly long chapter itself, has 21, (TWENTY. ONE.) comments from the author, typically every other sentence so that you can barely even follow the storyline without your train of thought being broken. It wasn't as bad in the first two chapters, but it gets much, much worse. I wish the translator would either save the comments for the end, or just make two versions of the translation- one with her comments and one without. It's just such a pity that a nice story had to be ruined, because I am unable to bring myself to read anymore. <<less

Where do I even begin ? This story is not just bad, it borderline unnerving...

Spoiler warning : I don't care about destroying the surprise and nor should you, but now you're warned.

Let's first address the MC :

She has the power to decide her own husband by herself, which means that no matter who her sister bring she can just say no. The only thing that I saw from her in the first two chapters is that she don't trust her sister nor men, with a good reason to boot, she just lost all hope in making her sister understand her (which I understand why) but know she will never have issue with the people she'll bring her. So how the f*ck did she get swayed that easily by the guy that already betrayed her ? Better, why did she even listen to his plan in the first place ? Only reason : because plot. That pissed me off. Author never needed the potion in this setting, all he/she had to do was do the same, go to the ball and get proposed by the king, which is already hard enough to refuse, especialy when you know he is bad with women. The rest of the plot till now depends on the fact that she is too DUMB (not dense, just dumb at this point) to get the clue that there never was a potion in the first place. Why ? She seemed quick witted in the first two chapters... well know what ? Don't care anymore, as she lost hope in her sister understanding her, I did in her getting back her brain.

The story :

What, there is one ? Jokes asides, there is no need in the potion, never was in fact, not with this setting, which made the story fall flat. Could have been fun if the potion was real and she really needed to get back the flask, but there was no potion in the first place, just a plot of the king to marry his beloved... why use that plot tho ? I mean, she is still active in the society, so why go this far ? Because author decided so, but I need a logic reason behind it, he isn't nobody ffs he is the king and she is an influencial noble thanks to her talent, he just has to propose and she can't refuse him, and the worst part : he knows it. The story is even slowed to no ends because of this potion, if there was no potion then she would have saw that he is serious, because they are similar, she would have begun to cultivate some feelings and this would have been a better story. Heck I could rewrite the story without the potion and still have an interesting story, would even argue that it would have been better.

[collapse]

TL;DR : The author has no story to tell and just earn time pointlessly by using a potion that never should have been there and that needed to make the MC really dumb.

Should have noted 1/5 but one bonus point to the trad because she is really patient. <<less

The translator is absolutely brilliant. Zuben's choice of words 💯💯💯. Some people found the translator's comments annoying, but I think otherwise; they're very engaging. You couldn't have done better Zuben sama! Thank you so much for translating this story!

I was checking out the raws and here's what Google translate showed me "his *choke* JAUNDICE coloured eyes....."

Like seriously? Jaundice? XD 🤣🤣🤣

The story is unique. I enjoy the story.

I don't mind with translator comment. Funny remark tho. Just like you read and share your thoughts with your friend.

Also I love the translator works. I love to read their works. Sometime I read a novel because I follow the translator.
