[I was reborn after being murdered because of the true wish that I made for revenge against all human-peoples, but now I’m alive again and I actually just kind of don’t want to do that anymore; so I opened a shoe-store instead!]

After being violently torn from her old life in the natural world after being grotesquely murdered by miners belonging to members of the common races of humans and elves, Mirabelle the fairy makes a true wish to anything that can hear her dying screams, beckoning the old powers of the forgotten reaches to allow her to take her revenge against those who stole all things that were precious from her in life.

Her wish is granted. However, upon being reborn in an age far after when she had originally died, and all traces of her old life having been erased by the unforgiving passing of time, she finds herself alone with a spirit that is now as crushed as her old body had been, as while she has indeed been granted her wish for power, all of the people who wronged her have long since died already.

Finding a new way, the cruel fairy forsakes her true wish to make the world worse than she left it and instead finds a new life in a very unlikely place — the large, nearby human city that hadn’t existed when she last knew the area generations upon generations ago.

Needing a method to survive as the only fairy within the human capital, if not the only one at all in the world, Mirabelle lives in secret within the vibrant city full of magic and adventurers, adapting to the ways of the human-people, as the fairy ways do not suffice to survive within this new, industrious society that is the total opposite of her old one, until she finds her path forward as a shoemaker's apprentice!

Living in seclusion and in fear, unable to reveal herself because of her own anxieties, the fairy practices the art of shoemaking in secret, the old contract of her rebirth not forgotten by her or by the dark stars that granted it, as she spends her days making boots as she tries to figure out what life exactly is for a cruel fairy or a cruel human, both of whom exist under the curious glow of starlight that seems to wait ever so patiently for the old bargain to be fulfilled.

Will Mirabelle succumb to her dark desires to make the humans pay for what they did to her and her people, or will she find a new way forward, breaking free from the spiritual shackles of revenge?

Razz is relentless in this fetish of his. Every chapter, right at the start, in its own unique blue-box is a description of the various parts of a shoe and why he likes them. Not to mention how he shoves in a mention of a foot everywhere he can, foot this, foot that! Get out of here "-And stay out!" "You Foot-ranking philanderer!" To quote chapter 4. Speaking of, 5 out of the 8 chapters so far are either foot, sock, or boot related. 6 if you count Death March.

I don't even want to mention the food stuff, though I guess I shall. All of the food so far has either been rotten/raw, or provided an artifical enhancement to ones 'LOV'! He's even given her an entire ability dedicated to letting her eat bad food safely! This does not bode well for her future abilities, especially given how in chapter 8 tongue is mentioned in regards to the shoe she made. Speaking of, (spoilers ahead) 

She's even been given a shoe related class now! Its insane how far razz bends his own system for this perversion of his!


And all of this isn't even covering the actual contents of the story! Chapter one already has face stomping! And, pardon the spoiler, but Mirabelles even begun watching someone in secret while they do stuff with shoes! Not to mention that he's even having her copy him! Or that she got a 'Growth' status screen from it! And as though that wasn't enough, he's even doing degradation via the system insulting her! 

in conclusion, I rate it a solid 4.5/5. Why are .5 points docked? Razz gave her clothes.


Very interesting premise here, a fairy too consumed by revenge to pass on to the next life returns to the world to find her only goal impossible. I estimate there will be high levels of character development and slice of life, with a malevolent tinge lurking between the lines. 

For what it's worth, I think Razz does really well at creating these kinds of stories, so I'm very excited to read more!


Razzle Dazzle does it again

It's another crafting LitRPG! It sounds like a power fantasy but don't be confused guy, we're making shoes! Like Dungeon Item Shop but with more shoes. Can't really saying anything considering I've only looked at the first chapter so far but it's likely about what i expect from Razz, well written LitRPG with some unresolved past trauma lurking in the background. And hey, it's a fairy this time!
(Hey, psst, got any slime?)


The world is [Cruel]. Come put on some [shoes].

This is the start of a Story about a Fairy.

I'd give a synopsis but the description does a pretty good job of that - make sure to read the warnings and see if they fit your fancy.

Early days but the author's style is a aesthetic and I like the shape of what's to come.

Sad turned happy hopeful thoughts and actions undermined by a slightly grim and dark background. A heavy dose of trauma just for fun and some stylistic prose as a treat.

I'm looking forward to this story.
