    Title:

    断頭台に消えた伝説の悪女、二度目の人生ではガリ勉地味眼鏡になって平穏を望む​

    Description:
    Crown Princess Leticia is executed by guillotine due to committing many evil deeds in her blind love for her husband, the crown prince.

    Just when she thought that she truly died, she somehow returned back in time and her second life starts.

    "I won't fall in love in this life, I'll become a studious plain glasses girl and live peacefully!"

    That was what Leticia vowed to herself, but one day, her true face was seen by the academy's superstar, Camillo. And right after that, she is now on the receiving end of much doting from him!?
    ----
    Impressions based on the first chapter of the manga:
    What caught me is the possibility that Leticia may have time traveled because of Camillo and there's hints that Camillo was in love with Leticia in the original timeline.
    Camillo crying shortly after seeing Leticia's face hidden under her thick frame glasses confirms that Camillo also time traveled and he remembered the original timeline.

    The manga adaptation's only started but I am very impressed with the story so far based on the first chapter alone!

    unfortunately there's no translations yet and the manga adaptation only just started fairly recently based on what i found ^^"

    Camillo is the red head, the ML of this story and a knight in the original timeline.

    I'm reading the webnovel which is completed right now to see more about the story and thankfully, there's no second ML or anything for Leticia, her romance is with Camillo and no one else.

    Some webnovel spoilers and summary left off from where the Manga was adapted:
    • The time travel occurred because the Time goddess heard Camillo's dying wish for Leticia to be happy in her new life, touched by the sincerity of Camillo's wish, the goddess granted time travel to him. They must see Leticia's eye colors hidden under her eyeglasses or else they won't remember.
    • Camillo has Augustine, the crown prince, to back off from approaching Leticia again and not ask her of why she rejected the engagement offer from him. Leticia thought that Camillo is saying that just to help her out of the situation but only realized that Camillo remembered the original timeline somehow.
      Camillo didn't tell her about the time goddess yet though. He offered to make the engagement real and had already asked for Leticia's parents for permission. Leticia fainted from surprise of the sudden developments but she did accept since her goal this time was to avoid being the Crown princess and not involve herself with the jerk crown prince anymore. (Thankfully, Letty's parents only went through with the engagement once she gave the okay to them)
    • Leticia actually told her time travel to Alondra Beris, her seatmate in the second life and her best friend. The glasses Leticia got has magic in them which lets her eyes easily.
    • The next day, the news was spread and Leticia was confronted by a posse of 3 girls who used to be friends with Leticia back in her first life but now that she changed her image and goal, the 3 girls are no longer her friends. They confronted her over her engagement with Camillo and Leticia brushes it off by saying it's a bluff to get Augustine to back off when the engagement is actually real. The girls are pleased and said how someone as "plain" as her isn't a good match for Camillo. (Girl, they ain't your real friends. :blobangery::blobangery: At least you got a true friend in Alondra now) Camillo later meets up with her and finally told her about the Time goddess and how the time travel was possible.
    • Then Leticia tested this by having Alondra see her true face and eyes, but since Alondra never actually met Leticia in her first life, it doesn't work. (EDIT)
    • Later, the Baron's daughter, the woman that the crown prince left Leticia for, Hisela Echeveria, showed up but since Leticia changed her image, they rarely interacted at all and just watched Hisela interact with Augustine from afar. Then the time traveler's realized that Hisela was never in love with Augustine, but is manipulating him to love her for power and greed.
    • Leticia later meets the second prince, Elias. He's Camillo's best friend (And also cousin, Augustine is also Camillo's cousin) and unlike his older brother, is decent and nice in personality. In the original timeline, he died while studying abroad. He is kinda a romantic so he was interested in how Leticia and Camillo actually met and wants to try and have his own romance story.
      Elias asked if Leticia is going to study with Camillo in the library but Leticia denied so. Then Camillo shows up and Elias was like, "Aha! I knew it!"
      While Elias teased the couple, Leticia bumped to a nearby book shelf and Elias helped her, but in the process, Leticia's glasses fell and Elias saw her eyes. Elias remembers the original timeline now.
    • Either way, Elias is now Camillo and Leticia's ally and ships the two.

    That's as far as I read for now, will add more once I finished reading the webnovel!
    Not sure if the manga will take a few liberties but from what I read so far from the webnovel it's a mix of drama with a huge dash of fluff with Camillo and Letty developing their relationship throughout the story.

    Thanks for your hard work of spoilers!
    Can you perhaps tell/warn me already on how annoying obnoxious hateful the trash prince ex-fiance-husband Augustine and scheming charming white lotus Hisela will be in this story?

    Another Noble/Royal Fantasy ML with the help of a god/deity rewinding/reversing time to save his beloved tragic FL.
    And this time it's a kind Red Haired ML ;)


    Fun Fact: The first ML Regressor in the (Korean) FanRomIse Genre who turned back time for the FL was probably:
    1. CLaude (The Duchess with an Empty Soul) followed by
    2. Ian (Iris - Lady With a Smartphone)
    3. Leon (The Emperor Reverses Time)
    4. Jaidel (I Raised a Childhood Friend as a Tyrant)
    5. Arcane (For Stella),
    6. Mikaelis (The Princess Imprints a Traitor)

    You're welcome!

    I am halfway reading the webnovel but to answer your question:
    Leticia's new image of being a plain Jane nerd works really well enough that she actually was under notice of the ex fiance and Hisela herself, and thus deemed irrelevant for long enough until:
    During summer vacation right after Elias remembered the OG timeline, Leticia is out on a date with Camillo in a zoo (Medieval fantasy zoo) and since Leticia isn't wearing her glasses or doing her plain Jane glasses makeover like she does at the academy, the Prince approached her because his dating of Hisela actually makes the King reconsider his choice of successor when he made the suggestion that he may want to choose Hisela as his fiance, so he approached Leticia and thought of offering her to be his official fiance instead of Hisela.
    With no Leticia around, Hisela and Augustine's relationship is eventually strained and resulted to this scenario.
    Leticia, however, and thankfully, does NOT buy into his offer and completely rejects him.
    Leticia still has PTSD and healthy fear of him after what he did to her in the OG Timeline but she managed to handle herself strongly enough to tell him off and then went on her way to find Camillo.
    But right after she left, Hisela saw the whole thing.
    EDIT: Hisela remembered the original timeline way before when she saw Leticia in a different place but Hisela left her alone because now that Leticia is Camillo's fiance, she plans to make use of another random lady who will be chosen to be the crown prince's fiance.
    It's theorized by Alondra and Camillo that strong magicians can potentially remember the OG timeline and some other potential factors such as how much the other person views Leticia in the original world. Hisela happens to have a strong amount of magic in her that allows her to remember the OG timeline.
    So she brainwashed Augustine right after to make him think that he is in love with her.
    Well, even with the twist that Hisela brainwashed Augustine, Augustine never actually fell in love with Leticia as a person and only is engaged with her because of her appearance and also position in the noble hierarchy that makes him look like a good future king candidate.

    On the bright side, a cute Camillo/Leticia moment:
    Right after Leticia left the place, Camillo found her and comforted Leticia who is in tears because she is still terrified and the mental scar and trauma of being callously executed by her ex husband in the OG timeline still has a toll on her.
    Camillo then asked if he could kiss her but Leticia is really nervous that he wondered if she's nervous because of him. (He thought that Augustine had actually hugged and kissed her in the OG timeline)
    Leticia clarified that no, Augustine never does anything like that to her even all the way till their marriage. No hugging, no kissing or hand holding. Nada.
    Camillo then asked once again if he can kiss her after clearing the misunderstanding.
    And so they kissed.

    Thank you again!
    Finally we have a traumatized FL who can still stand up on her own against her ass perpetrator/murderer!:blob_pompom:
    I just hope Hilisa doesn't get the dumb cliché thought 'Now I have to get rid of the FL Leticia because she stands in my way of getting the shitbag prince for whatever scheme' or 'She wants My Prince The Meal Ticket back! I won't let her and will destroy her!' :blobthumbsdown:
    Many White Lotus Bitches with charm abilities never realized that the FL has no interested at all of getting married with a royal asshole who hurt/harmed/killed her. They were always so stupid not considering the possibility that the FL wants to be left alone or doesn't want get involved in their toxic drama!

    Okay, I'm mostly done with the webnovel so here's a summary to the rest of the story and some important plot points!
    • These events occurred before Summer vacation:
      • In the new timeline, Leticia joined a volunteer club that is considered as "Club with too much work" in a school filled with many nobles and it works like doing charity stuff. OG timeline Leticia also thought the same before but she changed that mindset in the second timeline and she is really enjoying her time in the volunteer club. She also befriended her previous maid in waiting, Luna Pascal, whom she once fired and sent to exile over a minuscule mistake in her blind love for her ex in the OG timeline.
      • Camillo joined the volunteer club so he can spend more time with Leticia and left his old club as a result.
      • During one of the volunteer works, Leticia's glasses fell and Luna saw her eyes, but instead of remembering the OG timeline, Luna praised Leticia for being such a beauty underneath the glasses.
      • Alondra and Elias then meet up with the two after this and they now got a new info and speculation on how some individuals will remember the OG timeline. It's favorability for Leticia. OG timeline Elias pities Leticia for being a tragic crown princess due to Augustine's ignorance of her and cheating on her for Hisela with Camillo's impression of OG timeline Leticia being the woman he loved who is more than her evil reputation. Luna doesn't remember because she thought of OG Leticia poorly due to being unfairly fired. (Elias and Alondra both are so damn hard and very in sync in roasting Leticia for her OG timeline personality I feel like they'd both be such a good match together from there. :aww:)
    • These events occurred after Summer vacation:
      • After summer vacation, the new semester starts. A new division in the kingdom was made and so Leticia, Elias, Alondra and Camillo learned that Hisela is a witch.
      • Magicians exist here and so does magic, but specifically, female mages who practices in black magic are called as a "Witch" rather than a general magician.
      • Since the problem with Hisela is being dealt with off screen, the group went back to doing school and academics as normal. After a school festival, Leticia learned that Alondra was engaged to her ex fiance in the OG timeline under the king's order. Alondra wants nothing to do with Augustine, especially since she knew the OG timeline, but it's a royal decree so her family couldn't refuse even if they want to. Now Leticia fears that Hisela is going after Alondra instead of her.
      • Alondra actually suspects this and tried to handle Hisela alone to protect Leticia, whom she grew to like as her best friend. And surely enough, Hisela did go after her and actually spoke out loud about what kind of brainwashing magic would fit Alondra well. Before Hisela can do much to harm Alondra, Leticia showed up and protected her friend.
      • Hisela laughs at Leticia that she is an idiot and now that she showed up, decided that she might as well kill two birds with one stone.
      • Instead, Camillo showed up and went completely bonkers at the sight of Leticia being injured and was close to murdering Hisela if not for Elias snapping him out of it.
      • Hisela then dropped a bomb that Camillo actually died after killing Augustine and Hisela in vengeance and justice for Leticia as a final "Fuck you" to the time travelers. Camillo purposefully hid this from Leticia because he's secretly afraid of how Leticia would feel that he killed for her sake. Leticia naturally didn't take it well because she wasn't even a saint in the original timeline either. (The other half is that she doesn't believe that Camillo has it to actually kill someone)
      • The teachers and staff showed up and Hisela was confined in prison right after. So in the OG timeline, even though Hisela did win and end up becoming crown princess, her lack of political education and noble etiquette eventually ends up backfiring her and OG timeline Leticia, even though she did a lot of corrupt things, she was still respectful enough and knew enough politicking and etiquette and thus, Hisela got compared. Even Luna, who got brought back by Hisela actually said that OG Leticia was still fairly respectful of her until she was unfairly fired.
      • Hisela's backstory: She is the illegitimate daughter of a Baron household and even though her mother loves her, she always drinks herself away in sorrow and anger at her father and this fueled her desire for power and money. Around this time, she awakened her magic and practiced it with a Witch living next door who taught her everything. Later, when her mother died, she was brought to the Echeveria Baron household and sent to the academy. This is when she started her plan on how to rise to the top of the social hierarchy.
      • Also, Elias now realized the true condition of who will remember the OG timeline. Only those who died before the person who originally wished for it are able to remember the OG timeline. In other words, everyone who died before Camillo. (Leticia, Elias, Augustine, Hisela and Camillo himself)
      • Augustine was brought to have the brainwashing spell removed and now he realized everything. Elias, before leaving, asked threateningly if he has any plans to marry Alondra which Augustine replied that no he doesn't. Elias is like "Well, that's good. I hope you don't forget that." (YES GO KICK HIM IN THE ASS GET YOUR GIRL :blob_pompom::blob_pompom:)
      • Elias and Alondra respectively comforted their friend over their fight while right after that. When Leticia was about to head over to find Camillo, Augustine found her and they talked a bit. Augustine then asked if he can see her face. Leticia agreed and now Augustine remembered the original timeline. But Leticia had long since moved on from him and left after calling him out for only taking an interest in girls who don't immediately swarm to him and then slapping him. (YES SLAP HIM HARDER :blobparty:)
        She then went to find Camillo and talks about how she wasn't a really good person in the OG timeline. They both talked and finally made up.
      • Meanwhile Hisela's interrogated in an Anti-magic room so she can't use her magic to escape. A witch working for the king then proposed that she'll deal with Hisela. The witch, Candelaria was able to see through Hisela's bullshit and how she lied about where she learned her magic spells from and tells her that Hisela is being manipulated by the very witch that taught her. Hisela is tortured to extort information out about the witch who mentored Hisela that Hisela wished they actually executed her to death instead.
      • Now a backstory for the Goddess of Time and her name is Shiela.
        The Goddess of Time once fell in love with a human but because humans don't live long, the goddess despaired and turned back time many times to meet the human again but due to her despair, she sinned and dabbled in black magic. And indirectly, she caused the birth of Witches.
        This last for a thousand years and her last act as a god is to grant Camillo's wish of time traveling and wishing for Leticia's happiness. After this, the goddess of Time passes on and is replaced with a new individual who will take on her title and while she pass on, Shiela finally gets to see the human she fell in love with one last time.
      • Right after that, things were peaceful as the whole reason the time travel started was solved and cleared out. Elias decided to not leave out of the country yet (He died studying abroad in the OG timeline) and he mentions that Augustine is considering making Elias the king and taking his position as Crown Prince instead and Elias was like "He doesn't seem like he changed much when I checked on him just after he was free from the brainwashing..." and then he laments that he really didn't want to be a king.
        Leticia was nervously laughing throughout all this cause she had a feeling that her calling out on her ex added onto him now remembering the OG timeline is probably such a big slap on his face that he really is now giving up his crown prince seat to Elias.
      • As for Hisela, she was officially exiled and under surveillance of Candelaria and thus, dropped out of the academy. Candelaria also took the job of teaching her magic and basically, defusing the tyke bomb.
      • The epilogue has Leticia and Camillo going on a date to the beach and happy. Leticia monologues that she now got the peace that she wished for in her second life.
    That's all of it for the webnovel! There are some cute fluff moments between Camillo and Leticia but I didn't include them here for the summary. ><
    No marriage epilogue but I'm honestly happy about the ending!

    Great work! Again Thanks!
    I am surprised and kinda relieved that Hilisa is getting rehabilitated by another powerful witch Candelaria instead of the typical humilitating crass punishment by torture, rape + death.
    Many White Lotus Gold Digger Antagonists from lower ranking poor social background have been suffering far worse painful consequences/demise than the brainwashed charmed seduced already petty royal asshole husband.

    Examples: Rashta (Remarried Empress), Nera (Iris - Lady With A Smartphone), Trisha (I Should Have Read The Ending) + Mistress (Darling, Why Do You Regret It?)

    Happy to know that Leticia gets to slap Augustine :blobhero:
    Do you think that trash Augustine got off a little too easy?:hmm:

    You're welcome!

    Yeah I think it's kinda refreshing to see this kind of end.

    Though admittedly yeah, I do believe Augustine got off a bit too easy but eh, he's the only one unhappy by the end cause his ex fiance already moved on from him by the time he got memories of the OG timeline back and he is going to be haunted by the knowledge that he's the reason why Leticia died and he got killed by Camillo in the end during the OG timeline.

    I don't really pity him in the end. Even without Hisela in the picture, he wouldn't have treated Leticia right like Camillo. :blobowoevil_horns:
