is there a story where the narrator falls in love with the main character as they’re telling that character’s story and then the narrator has to find out how to get into the story so they can help their love and meanwhile they’re trying to subtly influence things in the main character’s favor but it keeps backfiring or just not working

then they finally get in the story and the main character has no idea who they are so the narrator just says they want to help, meanwhile they’re still narrating the story but now it includes what happens to them too.

I JUST THINK THAT WOULD BE NEAT.
