When I recovered my memories, it was almost too late. Becoming a sacrifice for a void cause was definitely not among my first options upon remembering my past life. And this shonen manga was a lot happier and idealistic back then when I read it than it is now that I'm trapped here. As an extra no less. Why is everyone, hero or villain alike, so much of a pain? Give me back my stock-shonen manga! Give me back my freedom to remain as humanly away from the plot as I can!
What do you mean I changed the plotline and now I have to fix it? If the world needs protecting then leave it to the hero party, they saved everyone once, surely they can do it again without my help? No?
Tsk, alright, but only because if the world dies I will die as well. Definitely not because I want to become a main character or anything. I'm fine being an insignificant character so don't give me that look!
Who wants to become a stock-shonen protagonist anyway? Definitely not me!
Warning: I'm going to come clean right now. This story it's frustrating. The MC isn't OP. She has no cheats. There is no wish-fulfillment and definitely no face-slap in here. There will be times you will want to pull out your hair from frustration not necessarily because of the MC, but because of how tremendous as-ehem, meanies the other characters can be. But that's life. I want this story to emulate reality as much as it can, and that means accepting things will not always go the protagonist's way, or that, villains and heroes alike, are not one-dimensional characters and even though you may hate them because of their actions at times, that doesn't mean what you see or what the MC sees it's the absolute truth. Everyone has their own circumstances. And everyone makes mistakes sometimes.
Another warning: This story it's set in late 18th/early 19th century. While I do try to make it historically accurate, keep in mind it's a fantasy world, and some leeway should be accepted.
