The Author's POV novel is a popular light novel covering Action, Romance, and Fantasy genres. Written by the Author Entrail_JI. 203 chapters have been translated and translations of other chapters are in progress.

Summary

The person whom the world revolves around.

The person who defeats all of his opponents, and ultimately gets the beautiful girl.

The sole existence all villains fear.

That is the protagonist.

What about me?

As a failed author who had only one success throughout his whole career, I had reincarnated into my late novel.

«This is it»

I thought, as I tightly clenched my fist.

Did I just get reincarnated in my own novel?

Is this where I reincarnate in a novel and become the protagonist?

No.

Sadly it’s not that kind of novel, as I reincarnated as a mob.

The world doesn’t revolve around me.

The girls don’t come flocking towards me.

The cheat items don’t come to me.

«Phew»

I let out a sigh of relief.

«Thank god I’m not the protagonist»

I joyfully shouted as tears streamed down my cheeks.

Wait, are you curious as to why I don’t want to be the protagonist?

I did forget to mention the most important thing when I was describing a protagonist.

That is…

They are calamity magnets.

I just died. If I learned something from that, it’s that it really isn’t a pleasant experience.

If possible let me live a long stable life.

Thank you, whoever reincarnated me.

I would later come to regret these words…

Reader Disclaimer:

There are two MCs in this story.
1. The original MC of the novel
2. The author that transmigrates in the novel
In the beginning, the author plays the role of an extra with no ambition other than quietly waiting for the story to end. He is almost like a babysitter that watches over the plotline, however, this will only be in the first 40 chapters or so as he will soon be dragged into the plotline regardless of how much he doesn’t want to.

The MC may come off as someone that has no ambition in the beginning but as the story progresses it will change

Also, there may be a bit of info-dumping at the beginning of the novel (at least the first 30 chapters), but there shouldn’t be anymore in the following chapters. Well…being a new author I may end up doing it again. If I do so please do criticize me and scold me. If you don’t scold me how am I supposed to improve the story? What’s great about writing web novels is that I actually can hear your advice and opinions. You are just as much invested in this story as I am, so please help me out.

Well…I would appreciate it if you don’t leave a one star…not that I can stop you

Also, yes, the novel is inspired by TNE (The novel’s extra) you may see a lot of similarities in the beginning, but for future chapters the differences will start to become more apparent. I hope you manage to stick through it. Also, don’t come reading this expecting it to be another TNE. In fact don’t compare the two. If you do, the flaws of this book will become more apparent as you read ruining the whole experience

    Am I the only one who thinks that Ren's new skill should be called [Sovereign's Deterrence] instead?

    So Ren mentioning his Charm stat made me go back to the status boards in the first chap 😂😂 No wonder he's so happy. He's just a step or two below Kevin in charm rank 😂😂

    I'm loving the interactions between Ren and other characters as of lately 👌 - Also loved how the demon decided to drop by a "gift" to Ren which just made the story more interesting and enjoyable lmao

    Amazing novel, if you like transmigration MC to a villain or extra character/MC trying to help from the shadow/MC big brain, you should definitely give this a try. Now i know some might get 'cautious' from the warning that the first 40 chapters will be an info dump, heck i was too, i mean the author even goes as far as to warned the readers. But imo, its not that bad, it still enjoyable, i was prepared for a literal info dump with no narrative at all, but the story still move and its enjoyable.

      Skill is downright broken. Author messed up with the ranking (Skill is listed as D rank but judging the effect it should be at least A rank)Spoiler AlertIt was pretty cool how he won his first arena fight without lifting a finger. Still it should get a nerf I mean enemy was F rank but the referee was D rank while Ren is just E+. If Ren goes all out by the looks it he can do the same thing to a D ranker.

      Spoiler AlertIn ch-31 ren said that if used correctly the lower ranked skill can be way more useful than S ranked skill. So the skill is not broken the person who is using it and the way he uses it is correct. But i think the skill ranked should be increased to C rank.

      Maybe the skills usage (effect/efficiency) diminishes once he gets to higher ranks? Since the skill is rated D rank after all.

      Spoiler Alert i think the skill rank is ok maybe at max it can go to C rank because to make this skill OP first user also have to be a high ranker (A or higher) and then second the opponent shouldn't have a skill like mind cleansing or monarch indifference which kevin and Ren has and If the opponent have a high will power than the skill effect will not be that great. I mean do you really think the S or SS ranker will not have some OP skill and high willpower. And don't forget this skill doesn't have any defensive and offensive ability(just like monarch indifference and this skill reminds me of the ancient power cale has in the trash of the counts family). so, at the end this skill only looks OP because MC is using it correctly. If someone else like a low ranker or a person who have a average IQ (by the way from what i have seen until now i think MC is really intelligent) then i don't think this skill would have been that good.

      P. S. MC is intelligent yes but he is not THAT intelligent (a lot of people can do just as well as him with the tools he was given). Spoiler AlertAlso he keeps missing opportunities and doesn't use his abilities to the fullest. For instance Kevin was with him when they were at the arcade. If MC wanted to he could check the book of Kevins 10min future to make sure to pull out more bears from the crane machine. Sure it's silly to use it in such a way but the fact that he didn't think of it shows he is not super smart. The MC can only be as smart as the author who writes the novel. Sure Ren is above average but not by a lot.

      Spoiler Alert I agree with the last second thing you said but still i think MC is lot smarter than average people because not everyone can make 2 whole army fight even if there extreme hostility between them. MC analytical abilities are very good especially when he's using the skill remember the time he defeated that demon and makes her his slave under the influence of skill. But even then the special thing about him is he learns from his mistakes( even donna said that). Not everyone can do that. He also started a fight between 3 guilds. how many people can really do that?

      A skill that allows you to dominate oponents at your level or even higher by a level is broken no matter what. Sure if the oponent has willpower or a Fear immunity type of skill it will have deminished or no effect but the fact is for all intents and purposes Ren can dominate an army of lower ranked people trough fear aura. Author has to nerf the skill somehow or rank it higher because it's unbalanced for a D rank loot. You can't just throw out a D rank skill that will let a D ranker beat a C ranker with no effort if said C ranker doesn't happen to have a fear resistance skill or lets someone face an entire army of lower ranked people and subjugate them without even fighting. Sure you can have a skill like that but it shouldn't be ranked as D rank. (A rank is perfectly justifiable considering there are counters to it otherwise this skill would be SSS rank)

      the skills are ranked by offensive capabilities so the rank isnt really incorrect.

      yea I totally agree the skill is downright broken, not complaining though just imagine, Spoiler AlertRen reaches S rank and faces off against multiple A rankers, they will just straight out kneel. D-rank for that skill is just glitched at this point. The rank of that skill is basically equal to the rank of the hunter using. IDK if later on the author plans to balance it up, for example stuff like using that skill on D+ rankers might consume more mana.

      Okay soSpoiler AlertFrom what i remember of that skill (which is not much but should be fresher since I finish almost all chapters 3 days ago) is that that skill can instill pressure or fear or whatever to people who are 2 ranks higher than him which means he, as an E+ should be able to apply pressure to D- and D and maybe even D+ (all the D rank actually) but might not work that well with the C ranks. I mean, the D rank referee also felt it but didn't kneel like the F rank that challenged him that fast. It is a little bit confusing but I guess the greater the targeted rank is the less effective. It is still weird that the skill is ranked D though, personally I would rank it at least A rank, but then again we haven't seen any skill which is ranked higher than that in the novel and what they might be able to do. Nice battle tho, that speed was amazing hahahahaha

      I went back to the conviniently named chapter The One (2) and read the description. The skill affects people a rank higher than him but people 2 ranks higher are also affected with diminished effect.Spoiler AlertRen didn't use full power of the skill ( lets assume he held back and unleashed only 70% - that was still enough from him to almost make the D rank referee kneel so it's safe to assume that Ren going 100% with the skill will make the D ranker kneel) The skill description was explicit about accounting only for User and Target ranks not skill rank and target rank. Meaning that when Ren is A+ he can make an S kneel (unless author hot fixes it). Personally I feel author can keep it super OP but has to make sure to list it as A rank. My nerf would be to make it USER + SKILL(D) rank divided by 2 = Max target rank that kneels. That way once Ren is higher rank he can't make S ranks kneel as an A rank while keeping his insane Advantage till about C rank.
