It is an AlternateUniverseFic in where, instead of Kamoshida, Makoto Niijima ruled over Shujin Academy to the point that she developed her own Palace. As the student council president, Makoto holds all the real power in Shujin as she tries to shape everything into a utopia of her design. With the arrival of Akira Kurusu, a young man convicted of a crime he didn't commit, she'll not stand for a delinquent troublemaker tarnishing Shujin's reputation. Akira, for his part, only wants to keep his head down until his probation is served, but life has other plans in store for him.

* BlackAndWhiteInsanity: Makoto's views on justice; she deems anyone determined by the Justice System to be a criminal with 100% absolution. This causes some internal conflict with over how she views Akira due to both the holes in the story of how he was arrested and how his [[PiratesWhoDontDoAnything overall school records and grades contradicts his supposed delinquent status]]. Makoto takes this to assume he's been putting on an act the entire time.
