"In that world, between beginning and end Lie established happenings laid out Chapter to chapter in the book of The almighty being. And each and every event Written there emanates From the will of the author. The pages that complete each chapter... We call time. But who is to know when And if the story ends. And that world was ending... As if a book Were finished being read... But the evil That lived within the closing book Ripped the chapter asunder with gnashing Teeth - Leaving the multiplication to begin.."
― Opening Words (Granstream Saga)
"In the end, our lives are possibly nothing more then stories woven in between dreams."
― Ritsu Shikishima (Caligula)

Users have absolute control of all aspects of the Verse in which they exist, and can freely alter its nature, content, inhabitants, history, destiny, etc. All rules can be changed on a whim or flat out ignored, as the user is literally the one dictating them.

Users are fully transcendent existences, both "characters" and "storytellers" of reality, controlling it like an author controls a work of fiction, with the same absolute power and overwhelming authority.

Users can notably grant themselves any life they wish, change any aspect of it, or simply start whatever they desire. As long lives tend to grow more boring, they are likely to embrace the path of reincarnation, either within the same world, alternate worlds, or brand-new ones created for the occasion.
