About Table of Contents


"In this world, morality is but a thin line away from depravity, and the most captivating tales are often shrouded behind the veil of insanity."

I was just an ordinary guy, living a dull and unremarkable life as an editor.

But when a maniac author killed me for rejecting his novel in a writing competition, I reopened my eyes in a modern fantasy world.

"Hmm? Wait, this world…."

But fate, being a prude little bitch, played a twisted joke on me.

I reincarnated into the very same novel that I rejected for the competition award, written by the very same author who killed me for it.

Not only that, but I transmigrated into the body of a disowned noble named Lucas Morningstar.

Lucas was a minor antagonist in a novel who served as a stepping stone for the protagonist and their allies.


Of all the people, I just had to be reborn as someone who was despised by the main characters the most at this point in the story?

B-But hey, with my knowledge of the future and understanding of the main characters, I can at least live an easy life!


"Yeah, I can work with this!"

Or so I thought until I remembered the ending arcs of the book.

This world is destined for doom!

And not so long after, I started to realize that the novel and the world I transmigrated into might not be as similar as I had originally thought….


[Disclaimer: Caution while reading is advised. Tighten your seatbelts and brace yourself for a bumpy roller coaster-like journey. Don't blame the Author if you fall from your seat while reading a plot twist. Thank you.]

AN: MC is NOT a villain, so don't expect one.

*The MC will seem a little bit (ok let's be honest, more than a little bit) foolish in the first 30-35 chaps but don't be fooled.

I ask you to read the first 50 chapters before deciding to trash-talk the MC because that's where his borderline psychopathic strategist personality starts to surface.

    Let this be a warning for all of you, fellow webnovel readers. We all think that we have the freedom to choose which book we want to read. But do we have that? When I first opened this book, I dropped it after the first chapter, thinking it was utter trash. But mind you, that was a grave mistake because I ended up garnering the author's wrath. And on the next day, I woke up to a note, telling me, "I got ur family and I live inside your walls. If you ever want to see them again, continue reading it." And so here I am, locked in the basement while praying that I can see them soon again. Don't get me wrong, I definitely enjoy reading this book especially when the author live streams how my family is starving in the room next door.

    As we approach our 100th chapter, I'd like to share my review of the story so far. While I acknowledge that it may not be a perfect 5-star rating, I firmly believe that the story I aim to tell is worth the rating I've given it. Admittedly, the progression can be a bit slow, and there are moments when the MC's actions may seem unintelligent or lazy. However, I urge readers to stick with the story until at least the 50th chapter before making any final judgments and dropping hateful comments. If, after giving it a fair chance until 50 chapters, the story still doesn't resonate with you... Then I can always see you in my next story. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to ask in the comments, and I'll do my best to address them. Regarding some common criticisms from a few readers: The MC may appear lazy or unproductive at times, but this is due to the lack of available resources that he can use at the current point in the plot. However, he gradually becomes more proactive as the story unfolds. The MC is not a weak or pathetic (he does act like it in the start but don't be fooled), and I can only ask that you read further to see how his character develops. The pacing of the story may be a bit slow in the beginning, (too much monologues) but it does pick up as the plot progresses.

    An amazing that you just can’t get enough of! the ability to have the Mc have a high intelligence and comedic personality without being to overpowered, while maintaining a good plot to the story and having diverse set of characters is an amazing act of itself. Highly recommend

    Writing Quality: The writing quality is good overall, as I can understand it, but there are still some mistakes. I would rate it 4 stars. ⭐⭐⭐⭐ Story Development: I didn't enjoy the story development much, except for the moments when the main character (MC) used his brain towards the end. That part was good. I would rate the story development 3 stars. ⭐⭐⭐ Characters: Unfortunately, I don't like the MC. I found him to be unintelligent, to the point where it frustrated me. It bothered me how easily he allowed others to see him as weak. Although there were some instances where he regained his strength, they were infrequent. Overall, the character development was not satisfactory, and I would rate it 2 stars. ⭐⭐ World Background: The world background has some details, but it often lacks sufficient descriptions. For example, the author uses generic names like "ruin city" without providing enough specific details to fully imagine it. I would rate the world background 3 stars. ⭐⭐⭐ Updating Stability: The updating stability is excellent, earning it a 5-star rating. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Evaluation: The story has potential, but the MC's development is a major drawback. It took too long for him to start using his brain effectively, and expecting readers to wait for over 50 chapters for that moment is frustrating. I hope the author considers improving the MC's character earlier in the story. (Note to the author: Please consider this review as constructive feedback. It took me 10 minutes to write, and I hope you take it to heart.)

    I'm up to chapter 30 right now. The novel is generic, as if any other person were to reincarnate as a novel-type scenario. But the writing quality is irritating, and I don't mean the grammar; rather, the manner the author writes the story is irksome; I can't count how many times the protagonist breaches the fourth wall, which makes me cringe at times, and there are simply too many info dumps.

    Reading the latest chapters I feel like this story isn't for me especially mc when being so highly intelligent just keeps on creating disaster for himself which will blow up later for convenience of the plot and he can't even manipulate anyone as successfully and he is not even what he deems himself to be -

    I am 99%,sure that the Book has been dropped. It was a good book while it lasted, especially the recent chapters(after 406), which were good. Too bad the author dropped after introducing some major plot points.

    The writing quality is mindblowing, the character development is so reasonable and smooth, its almost shocking... And the presentation is truly magnificent..never read any Author's work that presented the story in such a godly way before... TBH can I know your age esteemed author kun and how did you develop such quality in writing ?

    Good writing quality. But I hate the MC. He is a psychopath and not a villain by any means. Hence I can't seem to relate to him . He has no qualms in killing children. ( Small SPOILER . He blackmails a character using a child as a shield and later kills the character as well as the child) . He also hides his strength and act as a weak character which I seem to dislike. I am out. Sorry

    Very boring, The protagonist until the 60 free chapters is simply pathetic, He is always afraid of the antagonist or the heroines, Always crying that he is weak but also doesn't do anything really good to change that fact, In short, It's torturous to read this novel .

    The humour is something 10-13 year old children will enjoy. It's like Phase 4 MCU with comedy overdone and at the wrong time. The writing quality is good. It's actually a 5/5 star novel if the author got rid of the cringe elements.
