    Summary

    Every story has a purpose or goal it is dedicated to, their authors at times going to great lengths to see the project they once started to completion. Nevertheless, the things the writers swore on to see their latest art piece to completion are static.

    Unchanging.

    None of them swore by the Moon nor Love because they can solely genuinely swear on all that changes like themselves.

    And yet, a wolf in love foolishly swore by the moon.

    That is when Time truly started ticking.

    Summary

    Yachi is the type of person to live vicariously through the lives of book characters, and in that way, she keeps a safe distance from the ups-and-downs of life, never fully taking the time to live hers—her anxiety would never allow her to survive for long even if she did take the reins anyway.

    But she cannot remain a passive observer forever, and when the opportunity presents itself for Yachi to ask out her crush, she just might take it upon herself to write herself into the romantic tropes she is so used to reading about.
