Summary

"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.

Arghh….

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!

Right...?

"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….

    It’s kinda sad to know that this novel is dropped, i remember when it first came out on this site with a mass release of 100 chapters that I binge read in a single day I was excited & predicted that it would eventually become a top 10 novel in ranking but alas.. a fall from grace.

    Maybe this is art, the author styed true to the title, by ending the novel like this, he gave 4th wall breaking power to Lucas. The hardest choices require the strongest will 😢

    D*mm*t we keep losing all the good novels these days, TBATE deteriorated, IWKTA vanished, The extras odyssey's author also vanished, Villain is on Vacation's author keeps saying he will continue but hasn't, Supreme Magus went on hiatus for a month etc.

      I can give you some recommendations if you’d like. TBATE is still going and the quality is still pretty good. But supreme magus being on hiatus isn’t that bad, as supreme magus did drop in quality.

        I will kill the author is practically a copy of Author's Pov, so I recommend you to read it. Anyway, the Author's Pov is way better, for a while it was first ranked on this site and currently should be in the top 10, and now it's also finished, so you won't have any problems.

        You can always try to find some in the ranking tab, but I usually read mtls or novels that are being translated these days. Main Heroines are trying to kill me was a good read if you can hold out till the ending. SSS-Class suicide hunter was one of my favourites. You can also try to other media like Warhammer40k it is scifi and has over 600+ in-universe novels. It also has a fantasy equivalent of warhammer fantasy. I loved the expanse, and frontlines by marko kloos.

    I bet this story is dropped. There was a time when I used to eagerly wait for updates but now after 4 months. I am better than most. It used to be a good book. Alas!

      Sadly that may be the case, this story is from webnovel and there are half a dozen chapters there that haven't been posted here but they haven't been updated for a long time. (Long time= 2 months)(Author last seen 2 weeks ago)

    This novel has truly fallen. Once a top 10 novel, it has dropped into the 20s, and will only continue to fall. Look at the comment section now. At first, the "author died" jokes were humorous. However, now they feel like users coping instead. I've seen people commenting that it's time to move on. So, I checked the author's profile on a "certain" site. Previously, he actively commented here and there. But now his activity has slowed down a lot. His last comment was 9 days ago, and he has practically quit using the site from what I've seen. Honestly, I'm disappointed. He likely lost passion for writing, or did it for the money. If you check his profile yourself, you'll likely come to the same conclusion as me. Realistically, we can continue commenting that Lucas killed the author. But the joke is growing a little stale now. I think it's time to move on from this story.

      He was last seen commenting on another novel 2 weeks ago but we might have to take his silence on the matter as the worst case scenario and believe he dropped it but I will always hope.

      But isn't it more unrealistic to for him to quit this book. He wrote Villain's Rising as a prequel to this book. And then 400 chapters of IWKA and suddenly one day he stopped responding. I am telling you he got a serious beating from his parents after exam results but who knows. And I don't think he did this for money. He literally gifted another a gift worth 5000 coins even after 20 days of quiting his own work. He should have somehow donated those coin. Nevermind my rambling

        I was of the same mindset for over a month. But now that it's been 2 months, I'm more inclined to believe that he quit. Let's be realistic, villian's rising was only 150 chapters, so it's way shorter than how long this story could become. Because of this, the author doesn't have much of a track record for writing long stories. Although, it would certainly be nice if he simply went on hiatus due to pressure from his parents.

      That’s just sad I’ve been waiting until the story accumulated 600 chapters to start reading again but I guess the author just quit

      It's common to get burned out and take a brake. But what's not normal is for the author to not even make a clear statement. He one day simply stopped writing and that's it, no matter how much the community tries reaching him he simply ignores them. I would have been fine if he made a statement "I am taking a break for ____ time" or even "I am quitting." atleast that way I won't always check from time to time if the story is continuing or not

        That's real problem. It's fine even if he takes a long break like for half an year or says that he will continue writing after a year or something happened and he is quitting. My guess he doesn't wanna quit but also can't write maybe parents pressure. So he is also coping in secret.
