"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….

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.
