PersonaWe all wear a maskPersona4 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
No matter how we shape or mold it
It stays the same way even with a slight change
For the mask is a part of us
Just as we are part of the mask
When we hide a hidden side
Deep within our hearts
It becomes a shadow
Something we try to deny
Something to forget
But it always comes back to haunt us
Trying to engulf us in its darkness
To show others what their really like
As they keep denying it gets stronger
Shifting and molding into something terrifying
The shadow becomes a beast
A monster of our dark side
Because we've denied it
For thinking it isn't a part of us
But it is a part of us
Like we are a part of it
The only way to combat it
Is to accept it as it is
For that shadow is you
You are the shadow
Your persona that is in your heart
Don't be afraid
Just face it
Show no fear
The shadow is you
You are the shadow
You wear the mask
Wearing the mark
On your heart
Once you accept it
It becomes a great ally
A powerful persona
Right by your side
Always there to hel

For Yosuke Hanamura being alone on Christmas Eveor any time in Decemberwas like your inmate in prison beating you to a bloody pulp. His parentsdragging poor Teddie with themwere currently traveling two hundred-and-eighty miles to the next city where they would spend Christmas Eve with his Aunt Konata. Yosuke hated Christmas with his aunts house. She was a cheek-pincher, her son-in-law was a drunk, her husband (Yosuke's uncle) had World War II on the brain and the dogsChance and Betty-Sumade it impossible to sleep nights.
Finally that year Yosuke made a stand. He told his mother straight out he wasn't going with them. Naturally this made her upset. She played the guilt card by saying his aunt would be hurt if he didn't show; but Yosuke knew better. He knew that his aunt was not only under the impression he was four years old, but also a girl.
So, hours and hours passed of dead silence and ultimate boredom in the Hanamura residence. His mom had called

Only a day ago, Souji Seta had been released from the Tatsumi Memorial Hospital, with no clue on what had happened to his parents and he was still reeling from it. Just a few months ago, he had felt happy that, while he was leaving behind all his friends, with all of whom he'd formed deep and unbreakable bonds, he would be seeing his parents for the first time in just under a year.
And it was a heartwarming reunion for the silver haired boy. The night he'd arrived home, Souji had surprised his mother by enveloping her in a warm hug, repeating the process with his father before talking long into the night with them about many things, enjoying their company and presence as they caught up with

Shinshudo began her inspection on Metis, taking mental notes about the damage that was caused by her daughter. ‘Goodness, I know that Labrys is strong. But I never thought she had this much raw rage pent up inside her…there must be something my predecessors missed when they were working on her.’
Labrys was sent outside to wait in the lounge with the others, where they could hear her mother giving out orders to Aigis and Fuuka. She sat by the window, staring outside while remaining perfectly still, like a porcelain doll on display. She didn’t even flinch at the discontent stares the others were giving her.

The three wild cards stared wide-eyed and mouth opened at the freaky scenario before them.
“What the hell…”
“…is going on…”
As if noticing that it was being stared at, the red moon grew brighter. The inky black sky made it look more ominous. It released a flash so blinding, they were forced to shield their eyes.
But just as soon as it appeared, the red moon was gone. In the blink of an eye, back in its place was an ordinary crescent moon emitting a dull light.
“What was that?” Minako gasped.
“It wasn’t the Dark Hour, that’s for sure,” her twin stated.
“I can’t tell if that was a Dark Hour phenomenon or not,” said Souji. “But it could be related. I think a visit to the Velvet Room is warranted.”

"I know, but-!" An amused bow was sent her way. The girl, strapped safely into the passenger seat, gave a nervous giggle and brushed her red-brown hair away from her cheek. She forgot how far how mouth could run off when she got nervous, and she was thankful that Mr. McMahon was there to give a sign for when it happened. "S-Sorry, I'm getting impatient."
"Nonsense, you're just excited." Assured the man in the black suit and glasses. That was Mr. McMahon in a nutshell. Polite and collected but not a kiss-up. It was no wonder why Makiko's father had been friends with him ever since they were boys. "And you needn't wait a second longer." He parked the car with the gentlest of ease, white and red walls boated with green hedges and graveled walkways greeting the mini-cooper. "We're here. Mizogei high school."

Our Hero arrives in Inaba because his parents were too stupid to take him with them when they left the country, so they moved him to the middle of nowhere to live with his drunken detective uncle. Nanako's sheer presence launches a thousand incest fanfics.
The family stops at a gas station. Foreshadowing takes place at such an early point that you forget about it within a few seconds.
Dojima turns out to be neglectful, due to him grieving for his dead wife for eight years straight. Nanako sings an annoying commercial jingle.
Souji's teacher has fairly good teeth, and is probably a forty-year-old virgin. Chie and Yukiko definitely have no yuri undertones. A boy with fish-lips asks Yukiko out. A background character with two in-game lines is crucified upside-down. Dojima introduces Adachi (Who is absolutely sexy, including his oblivious attitude, much like Cosmo from the Fairly Oddparents.), who is definitely not Matsuda from Death Note.

She smiled at me. "Your fur is clean today. Did someone give you a bath?"
I barked my acknowledgment. The woman who owned Chouji, a brown Akita I got along with, spotted me that morning and gave me a much needed bath. It was really nice of her, considering that it was a really hot day, and I haven't had a bath in ages.
"I see." She took out something from her bag. "Have you eaten yet? I have something for you." Crouching down, she unwrapped the object on her hand and held it out to me.
I sniffed it cautiously. It was a small slab of steak. It smelled delicious. Did she get this specially for me? I wondered. To be safe though, I took a small bite first. I've had a bad experience with a

Will never forget from that night:
The horrible screams of people
Running from their plight and
The tears running freely
Down my face.
They told us nothing was wrong,
Although their eyes were wide with fear.
Listen to me! my father said,
Everything will be alright, Dear.
But the tears were running freely
Down my face.
The ships unsinkable!
This must be some mistake!
My mothers face was grim
And her hands began to shake.
And the tears ran freely
Down her face.
I stepped into the lifeboat
Not wanting to believe.
I cried out to my father.
He wasnt allowed to leave.
The tears ran freely
Down my face.
I was shaking.
My skin was deathly pale.
The cold drove right through me,
Like a driven nail.
The tears ran freely
Down my face.
From the little life boat, my mother and I,
Watched the Titanic sink down
And thought of my father, back on the ship,
Struggling not to drown.
And the tears fell freely
Down our faces.

"Shhh...don't be afraid." the beautiful man in blue, whom Minako had called Theo, rose with graceful fluidity and caught her in his arms as she blacked out from the shock of seeing him again. He laid her body on the couch, resting her head in his lap and softly stroking her face until she was able to wake up. He'd felt something for her once, in his strange and naive otherworldly fashion, and he didn't realize how much he'd missed the feel of her presence after having watched her from afar for so long. He held her, fondly reminiscing about those days before she jolted upright away from him. He couldn't understand why she pulled away and felt hurt at first until he remembered that things weren't as they were back then, life having since moved on in her world. "My apologies." Theo blushed, the faint redness apparent on the pure white skin of his perfect face.

Rise is a liar.
Not to be cruel, of course; Naoto knows this. For Rise is the rare tender soul who always gives more than she takes, so freely and with such extraordinarily unconditional love that it is difficult not to be dazzled and therefore unaware of just how much Rise lies to everyone.
But she does. She lies. To everyone.
Even to herself.
Naoto knows this, too. She has heard it, observed it, felt it, even: when Rise hugs herself close to both Naoto's and Kanji's arms on their strolls along the river plain; or when she nuzzles sleepily between them, her hair tickling at Naoto's or Kanji's cheek, depending which way her head is turned; or when she slips, sweaty and slick, from one mouth to another, on the nights when Naoto or Kanji or both invite her to share in the finest expression of their affection. That is when Rise lies. When she giggles, or hums, or moans at Naot
