The Villainess Needs A Tyrant


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

Just now, I stole the lips of a man who is notorious as a tyrant.

In front of my younger cousin, Arinel, who stole everything I had in my previous life.


“Why did you kiss me?”

“Because my younger cousin loves you, Your Majesty.”

“Is that so?”

His arms wrapped around my waist. The distance that was formed vanished in an instance. The cold-blooded, powerful man’s smile filled my view.

“Open your lips. If you are going to do it, then do it properly.”

IDK the translation doesn't make much sense. Or maybe its just written in a way that purposefully supposed to be confusing and have a ton of plot gaps so you have no idea what is going on from chapter to chapter..

I'm giving this a 4 just because there's some substance to it and it's not as shallow as most other stories like this. The problem is that it's almost impossible to figure out what's going on because the translation is so bad. Everything reads fine but most pronouns and sentences where plot information is being conveyed are undecipherable. This would be great with a better translation, I think.

Its has a lot of potential, but its written (or translated, not sure which) in a confusing way. It is sometimes hard to follow. You usually get the overall meaning of a chapter but the details are fuzzy.

this is one of the rare ones where FL doesn't possess some random person's body. She's a badass without that stuff. I love LOVE this pair, they're so adorable and are both villainous.

... more>>

Love the way that FL's not the only one who travelled back in time, it's so muah.


And the way the people seek the love FL had for Arinel (traitor sister) just does something to my heart.

For eg, this guy</3

The other cousin who dressed as a girl when he was a child, hoping it would bring them close like FL was with Arinel---thinking in his head, 'How can she love so graciously? Can I have such a love?'

'I passed two lives and lived abandoned in both. I just want to make the person I love happy.'
'I want to be the one she loves. I'm jealous of the person she loves.'
'I understand that look. Longing for the unattainable.'

---These are all his thoughts. He might've been my favourite character with a one-sided love. He's such a bastard, I absolutely loved it....I felt so compelled and bewitched, because the idea of one-sided love is just beautiful in some sad way.

Also, isn't irony just amazing? The love that they all wanted---the love that FL held---but the only person that FL had gave this love to, Arinel, who she loved like a sister, used it and betrayed FL. Isn't the irony of one-sided love just beautiful? While they all held a one-sided love to FL, she herself held a one-sided love to her sister.


And the way ML loves FL is just entrancing. They both think of each other in such magnetic ways in their POVS, it's breath-taking.


"Your majesty, what is love like?" -FL
"... Love, it's the feeling that even if that person betrays me, I'm willing to be fooled again." -ML

And the ML also longing for the love FL held for her sister in their past lives....</3
'The only person who moved her apathy was Arinel (sister). That was my one-sided love. I can't remember when I started longing for that love.
I loved her. In return, I was mu*dered.'


This might just be my love-sick self taking over me, but I swear they're so perfect. They've been through so much, betrayal and pain--but they're been together this whole time.


"... Kill me. My death is what you wish for. So don't hesitate, it's fine." -ML
"Maybe I want to save you. Just because I'm selfish. But I can't help it, this villainess needs her tyrant." -FL

"If it's all over, I want to love you one more time. Is it my fault to say 'love' too late?
I don't understand, but I'll follow your love. Love doesn't always mean being next to each other." -FL, getting ready to kill ML because that's his wish--because death would've been less painful than suffering while being alive.


Also, the revenge was a bit dissatisfying, because I wanted them to suffer more.

I'm happy that Arinel (sister) realized what she'd done, but I'm a bit mad she left at her own terms.

These are Arinel's final thoughts/flashbacks about FL, they made me feel pain and satisfaction at the same time.

Do I need many reasons to love my sister? Everytime I see her, I just choke with happiness." - FL, past life flashback
... No, I don't want to know anymore, please... For me, it's just a person I hate...
Just as older sister did not know his majesty's love, I want to say that I did not know my sister's love.
I can't understand you. How harsh I was, why doesn't she hate me...!

...My sister wanted to give me a comfortable death.
My sister was kind until the very end.


Anyway, I might be a little bit biased in the rating, since I related to some of the characters on such a personal level, it felt like I was reading my own feelings. Also, I realize that my review makes this seem like some sad sob-causing novel---which it really isn't, tbh. It has sad scenes and I just dramatized them, cause this story isn't that sad. HONEST!

Also, there are some plot holes---unavoidable, but still disappointing---but I managed to ignore them somewhat. Still really recommend this though! <<less

I came to read the novel after the manhwa. The manhwa is beautiful and LOGICAL almost all the way (there are moments of s*upid joints, but they are inevitable). I like that in the visualization a lot of things were not chewed into mush, leaving "behind the scenes" that there is a dynamic action, the development of characters. Development and disclosure. We were shown the motives, reasons and arguments for the actions of almost every at least somewhat significant character and the point of no return for everyone. This is... more>> great. I don't understand why manhwa is called chaotic. I give the novella 5 stars. In absentia. <<less
