The transmigration that happened to others, it happened to me too. I’m pretty sure I’m now a supporting character… but exactly which novel is this?

When I opened my eyes, I was a widow with stepdaughters my own age, and not only that, I turned into a black swan every night due to a dark curse! Holding back my tears, I decided to take charge of my fate…wait, why should I? Why So Serious?

A duchess during the day, a queen of the lake during the night – I have the best luck to be able to leisurely float around! Life should be lived unplanned! When I had just about decided to live my life like this, a white baby swan, one that was not in my no-plan life plan, came to me.

“Mommy, awe you weally my mommy?”

What, you were a person? And even the youngest sibling of the tyrant emperor?

“I’m not your mother! Can’t you tell by the different colors of our feathers?”

I’m a black swan, you’re a white swan! But why is she so crazy cute. Can our mother-daughter love endure the obsession and persecution of this child’s seven brothers, including the tyrant emperor’s?

5 stars so far.

This is a slice of life novel so as the tag indicates it's a slower paced novel. Not seeing face slaps, demon slaying, and whatever other action packed events you can think of in every chapter. Don't like that, then go somewhere else, tags clearly state what can be found here. This is definitely a novel geared toward an older audience. You won't find it harem packed and the novel tends to cherish the small things written into life.

WARNING: I would like to point out that the... more>> translator has been trying to contact the author to see how she feels about her translating the story and the author seems to have not written back yet, assuming this is why the story has been on such a long pause (long for this translator). Which I can't blame. If I was translating and told the author I was doing so, I'd want to get an agreement about it too. I'd be worried my English translations maybe stolen under the context of not haven been given permission ahead of time to translate. Hope the author responds soon and positively. The English speaking/reading audience isn't big enough for the translator to make enough money through donations (lucky if they can buy a few coffees) for it to matter, so I'd hope the author wouldn't care, but we will see. -Crosses fingers- <<less

I love stories where MC raises kids, it’s my sweet spot. This had a great picture, nice summary, I thought it was a shoe in. However, looks can deceiving because I can’t even get into this. The writing style is way too whimsical and the author doesn’t really do a great job of explaining the important stuff. Maybe, it’s just the translating that’s depreciating the original novel’s content. Either way, it’s hard to follow, just be ware.

The idea is wonderful, the beginning promising, the translation is good, but oh dear, why is it so long ?!

it’s dragging endlessly with nonsensical slice of life pace, excruciating baby talk (ridiculous for the age of the princess as her anatomy should not limit her which is the actual reason for baby talk)

in the end, nothing is going on or so little after more than a 100 chapters (short, but still) ...

I'm sold. I was thinking the FL was going to transmigrate into a misunderstood villainess, as per normal, but that she was an unmentioned cannon fodder of a cannon fodder of a cannon fodder (that third one was intentional, since her step-daughter wasn't mentioned in the book either) must be a shock.

The little princess is so adorable! But, given the way the original story was supposed to go, and the current attitude of her brothers (disinterested in times of calm, but seem to genuinely be worried with her missing), something... more>> seems a little weird. The fifth brother's actions don't seem to be in line with the original story? I look forward to finding out what this all means! <<less

This might be the most drama just for dramas sake ive ever read its boring and repeats in a cycle. The MC could have fixed her problems by being honest or explaining her situation but she lies and gets herself stuck as a s*ave of sorts to her "step daughter" she makes no sense, she has no character just things to make more drama all of her is there just as a plot device and dont fit

Honestly this writing just feels very whimsical and like the MC could have solved so many problems and misunderstandings if she would've just talked this out, which makes me feel pretty annoyed. Additionally, although she doesn't have any experience as a mother so many of her reactions to the og FL just gives me the impression that she's very irresponsible and overdramatic so it was hard for me to get into it. Like the whole, oh will I keep the baby or will I won't thing. Sometimes you get some... more>> semblance of a person and not a caricature when she thinks of her past and stuff. Really for this type of novel I turn my brain off when reading them but this is honestly very hard for me to get into. Anyways I'll try and keep reading about it as maybe the romance plot might help. <<less

This novel is totally my types_hilarious, fluffy, child-care and clumsy yet strong-willed MC. Her carefree spirit attracted me the most.i really fell for her.... Hoping for more mother-daughter moments..?

I like it except for Raina. I feel like I understand her. She is capable and it is her right. In another story, she'd be celebrated as a heroine fighting for her right. Her attraction towards the emperor feels forced to be honest, and goes completely against her character. She is above all said to be waiting to get the duke title. She would instantly lose that if she becomes the empress. The author could have made it so that the daughters are hostile towards Catherine because of their current... more>> circumstances. Having Raina eventually become the duchess and maybe marrying one of the brothers. (Who marries into her family.) And Catherine could help Rebecca overcome her complexes. Right before the emperor arrived, the daughters felt like real foes, complex characters but after the emperor appears, they just lose all that. When will writers stop pitting women against women, using a man as an excuse. They had a perfectly good 3d conflict ongoing due to circumstances, but chose to make it a fight for a man instead. Truly disappointing <<less

I dropped this a while ago. A lot of the misunderstandings could be resolved with talking, so if you hate that trope I don’t advise you to read. Personally, tho I like misunderstanding tropes because it creates angst and I love angst. This novel can be very dragging tho. The reason why I dropped was bc this is slow burn novel and hardly any progression in the actual plot. Really needs a slow romance tag too. Was at chapter 88 and barely any romance. The two leads were barely interacting... more>> with each other. I’ll probably pick it back up when it’s finished. <<less

The premise of it is sweet and the FL is good but it seems a bit dragging, there doesn't really seem to be much substance to the story aside from the premise.

The story is cute. It is simple, but a fun read and I love the interaction between the main character and the emperor. I really hope that this keeps getting translated. It wasn't updated in a while and it makes me a little sad because I desperately want to read this until the end ;u;

I really like it!

The story is like a different take to the classic “Swan lake princess” but instead of the pure white swan, our MC here is the beautiful black swan. She is bullied and cursed by her evil stepdaughters (specifically the eldest of the two). She’s a beautiful young stepmother-in-name-only by day and an elegant black swan queen of the lake by night. She takes in the adorable baby white swan princess to protect and raise her as her own. The story is fluffy and the interaction of the... more>> MC and ML is really funny and cute. I can’t wait for the day both our MC and ML acknowledge their own feelings for each other, I bet it would be so sweet and a bit humorous haha.

The story also has bits of resemblance to “Cinderella” and “Beauty and the Beast” but with differences. It’s just that instead of a poor stepdaughter being bullied as the protagonist, we have a poor beautiful stepmother in her 20s as our main character. “Beauty and the Beast” because all the inhabitants of the lake are cursed, they were once humans but now animals hopelessly waiting for the curse to be lifted if ever such a day would come, just like the inhabitants of the Beast’s castle in the classic story.

It’s very interesting and makes me want to read more. The translations for chapter 1-28 are really good but the new translations onwards really need to improve more, there are some chapters that are very confusing, but you can still understand it a lot better than shitty mtl. It improves as it goes though.

Thank you to the translators! I really hope there are more updates. The story is really fun so give it a go and read :) <<less

It's a nice and cute story, although it is choppy at times, it pulls through with it's funny and adorable actions. The story is the definition of heartwarming and the romance is only there to help the story progress. haha.

Although I would recommend you to read it, the translators had to drop this because they were too busy to continue translating. (so sad...) I don't think you should MTL this (though I have never tried) because it seems like the story is kind of too complex to do it justice... more>> by MTLing it. <<less

I'm really weak to novels with raising cute children as part of the plot and the translation is well done not MTL'd. I appreciate the work the translating group put into this and hope the author will approve of their work to continue this project.

It's a lovely story and was going well. But the translations aren't on point enough to convey the propper meaning and mood at times. It makes it hard to follow.

Really good novel with good plot and good characters execution especially our MC, she is strong and funny. She's not powerful but imo she's the type who know how to act in any situations to safe herself, all her situations is on disadvantages side but she can use that for her own advantages. MC and ML relationship seems like will be interesting because their first meeting is really hilarious? Thankyou for the translations, little ajummas!♡

One of the sweetest and best written korean novels I've ever read! (And I read a lot ;)) really cute story about an ex zoo keeper who transmigrated into a novel and became the cursed stepmother that transforms into a swan at night. With her fondness of animal and especially baby ones, MC meets the little swan princess one day that the royal family was looking for all over the place.

  • Spoiler

    . Knowing the novel’s events, MC struggles whether to give back the princess or raise her herslef, and she meets the ML Who’s the tyran and evil emperor. However, the interaction between MC and ML is hilarious and very sweet at the same time as he knows more about her despite the negative rumors.

  • i loved this story many many thanks to the translor for pocking it up and doing such a great job, please keep showering us with lovely chapters XD
