FWRR: Akira's Story Round 3"So, what 'Con are you from?" Mattias asked.
"I am from the Xanaduvia Panopticon," Riela answered.
"Wow. What's it like there?"
"Same as any other 'Con: high security, low tolerance for failure. Nothing significant."
"We also have a strip club."
Mattias's eyes widened. "A s-strip club?"
Riela blushed. "We don't let a lot of people know about it. In fact, OPS makes sure that it remains a secret."
"OPS knows about it and they let you go run the joint?"
Akira sighed contently as he watched the two engage in idle conversation. It reminded him when he talked with his comrades after completing operations. Beatrice would talk non stop about the Abductors they encounter, while Akiza would brag about how many enemy Sinners she took down. Mattias would go on shooting his mouth off and stopped every time Elfriede threatened to beat him into a coma. Those were fond memories indeed.
"Alright," he said, gaining their attention. "We've rested well enough. Time to keep
Persona: Imagining Project Ch. 10Desolate Trainyard
(OST: Urban Sprawl)
Kai made the first move as he charged towards the Roaster. He swung at him with precision, but he managed to block it with no problem with his flamethrower. The struggle between the two gave enough time for Asuka to attack the Roaster from the left and Kazuya from the right. She hit him in his side with the blunt end of her polearm while Kazuya threw some of his Shurikens at him, where one managed to get itself stuck on his kneepads.
"Argh!" the Roaster growled in pain as he was hit by Asuka's attack. He staggered a bit, allowing Kai to hit him in the head with the sheath of his sword.
"That oughtta put him out of commission for a while," he said.
"I hope so," Kazuya replied. "Hey, why didn't you cut him with your sword?"
Kai scoffed. "I don't feel that it's neccessary to spill any blood." He turned to Kazuya and gave him a hard look. "Is that a problem?"
Kazuya shook his head. "Whatever floats your boat, dude. Truth be t
Persona: Imagining Project Ch. 9Wakamono District – Abandoned Building
April 30 - 9:50 AM
Narumi drove the trio back to the old building so they could re-enter the mirror. But when they arrived, they saw that the police have surrounded the building, forbidding entry to unauthorized persons.
"Well, this is a rip," Kazuya muttered. "Now we'll never get into the mirror."
"Don't count us out just yet, kid," Narumi said. "They will let us in whether they want to or not."
Kai wondered what she meant as he and his friends exited the car. As they approached the building, the officers stopped them.
"Sorry, entry beyond this point is forbidden," one of the officers said.
Sighing, Narumi stepped forward and showed her badge. "You dumbasses seen anything like this before?" she asked sarcastically.
The cops took one look at the badge and suddenly stood up straight, saluting the woman.
"P-Please forgive us, Narumi-san!" one of them shouted. "We didn't recognize you out of uniform."
Narumi facepalmed. "Good Lord," she muttere
Persona: Imagining Project Ch. 8Wakamono District - Shopping Center
April 30 - 8:40 AM
The trio had trouble registering what Narumi had just said to them. She requested that they return to the mirror after they nearly lost their lives in the otherworldly realm. What exactly did she have in store for them now.
"I'm sorry, but I don't want to go back there again," Asuka said quickly. "I think I've had enough near-death experiences for one lifetime."
"What are you talking about?" Kazuya asked in disbelief. "It was your first near death experience."
Asuka glared at him. "Actually, it wasn't. When I was in Mexico, I nearly got caught in the middle of a cartel bust."
The news caught Narumi's interest. "Go on."
"Basically, the cops have been trying to get these guys for years. They supplied illegal drugs and firearms to anyone who had the money for it. Eventually, one of the members came clean about it and that was end of it."
"So, the cartel got brought down by a rat, huh?" Kai chuckled.
Persona: Imagining Project Ch. 7Boys' Dorm – Room 216
April 29 - 9:30 PM
After classes ended, Kai and Kazuya headed back to their dorm room for some much-needed relaxation after the craziness they've been through. Kai was on his bed with his nose deep in a book, while Kazuya was at his desk, playing a video game on his laptop.
"Shouldn't you be studying?" Kai asked, his eyes still glued to the book in his hands.
Kazuya shrugged. "It's alright, dude. I usually cram after playing this and it keep my grades stable. There's no problem."
Kai scoffed. "You really believe that?"
"Hey, I've managed to keep my grades out of the red, so I'm cool with it."
"Uh-huh." Kai put the book the book down and walked over to the desk that Kazuya was currently occupying. "What exactly are you playing there?"
Kazuya's eyes lit up as he turned to Kai. "It's an amazing game, dude. You get to play as cute girls that are based off of a harmful substance and battle against other girls. I gotta tell you, it's freakin' aw
RWBY: Nature's Wrath - Yang Intro"What? You have nothing to say anymore? No witty jokes, no puns, nothing?"
Yang was silent as she leaned against the wall. She was starting to question whether or not it was a good idea to show her face in public, given what happened during the Vytal Festival. Even after Vale fell, the media had no qualms about constantly slandering her image, as well as insulting Beacon for letting a "uncontrolled punk" onto their grounds. They even had the gall to say that her attack on Mercury was the cause of it, bringing the Grimm in swarms. It also didn't help that there was a voice in her head that told her to beat them up and be done with. Honestly, Yang wanted nothing more than to make sure her detractors ate their meals through straws for the rest of their lives, and didn't really care if her already-fragile reputation worsened. But deep down, she wasn't in the mood to give them more ammunition for them to use against her.
"Heh, looks like the bitch isn't in the mood for some talking, huh?" o
RWBY: Nature's Wrath - Blake IntroShe would never admit it to anyone, but Blake was a hateful person. She hated how Faunus were still mistreated despite promises of equality. She hated how White Fang dissolved from a bridge attempting to connect her race to humanity to a sword that punishes the latter for what they did to the former. But most of all, she hated herself. She hated the fact that she was a coward, she hated how her past came back to haunt her, and she even hated her semblance, which reflects on said cowardice. But at the same time, it fit Blake's character perfectly: a coward who always runs the moment things get heated.
"No one can know that I'm here," she said, looking at her scroll, then turned her gaze to the ocean. "I have to do this on my own, no matter what it takes."
She drew her arm back and tossed her scroll into the ocean, never to be recovered again.
"I can live with the fact that she'll never forgive me," she said solemnly. "She can hate, for all I care. But if I can defeat him and weake
