Have you ever seen a character with a victim mentality/complex? Oh, my family doesn't love me, woe is me....i rebirthed and now I will kill myself since they still dont love me.... rebirth again! Woe is me x4 Aaargghh.... find a tower and jump already! MC without a grain of self respect or any esteem whatsoever. She has powerful magic and can't think to ally herself with the royal family? And thus avoid being charged with treason once they move against her family??

The idea is good. Plot wise, there couldve been better ways to deliver them. But since it seems the aim was to tell the story as short as possible, some things mustve been compressed.

The ending chapter feels like an abrupt ending.

This short seems half baked at best. Perhaps the author intended to be artful with the prose here, but it doesn’t work. Instead, the main character presents herself in such a detached manner that she seems so absent that I couldn’t come to like her. She has to tell us her interests and goals because otherwise we’d never know. The story lacks any tension and there is no character growth to speak of. It’s repetitive, which is not the way to go in a short story, and things happen for... more>> no real reason.

If I were to analyze this in any detail, I’d say it’s a tale of a woman with clinical depression, told in a manner that mimics the way someone with clinical depression might feel. Unfortunately, this is a slog to read and not at all satisfying. I only managed to complete this because it was very short, and honestly I’d like my time back.

I have to give a shout-out to the translator as she not only slogged gamely through the story while maintaining a consistent tone, but the prose was tight without unnecessary detail or strange tense switching. It’s hard to find a translator or transcreator who can translate and localize the text without being s*ave to each word, but she manages this quite skillfully. <<less

This only has 4 chapters but my eyes ache right after I finished it. Not sure if it was the writing of the author or because it was mtl and just heavily edited (i think) that caused this to be a flop. The plot seemed interesting, but its like reading a rumor where instead of expressing what happens, it just tells you, no small details that could have made it more immersive (?).

I rated it higher than what I'd like to because kudos to the translator for the effort but... more>> im never gonna read this again <<less

Among the broken engagement/villainness rebirth/otome game style short stories, this one has a bunch of unique points.

Unfortunately, I believe a lot of the issues of this story come from the translation. You really need to re-read a lot (or read very very slowly) to understand the subtleties and figure out the obscure wording/ disconnected thoughts in the translation. Otherwise, half the time you'll have no idea what is going on.

The twist with the emperor and the special seed was very interesting and unique for this genre.

If the translation were better, the foreshadowing would be a lot more obvious and the significance of the seed would be more apparent and connected to the story. As it is, I still have no idea why the story talks about the seed so much when it had nothing to do with the MC's rebirth.

At first I didn't understand why I disliked this story. Maybe it's the terrible use of first person perspective. Or the incessant use of the words "me", "my" and "I".

But no. The reason I dislike this story is that it is constantly telling instead of showing. And because of that, it makes me not care about the story. Because of its bad writing. And this is something that can't be blamed on the translator, as their translation is fine.

But the story itself was so aimless. The MC was self-deprecating and... more>> depressing, and made me want to throw myself out the window. The first three chapters were just about her bemoaning the fact that people didn't like her, and how she was talented but was being exploited. And about a bird.

Then the fourth chapter just threw a curveball at you and concludes the story.

Just like that.

And I feel like I wasted my time slogging through 4 chapters. Like, thanks to the translator for translating it. And my stars are basically only for them, and not the story. <<less
