OK, so while I try to get a new story for Inescapable Fate, I’m gonna give you a written, interactive fanfiction version.
Yu leaned back in his seat as the train chugged its way to his hometown of Ota. He just beat up Izanami-no-Okami, got rid of the fog, and caught the killer.
Life was good.
The train’s constant hummng against the rail was very relaxing. Monotonous, even, and….
Yu nodded off to sleep, and began to dream he was back in the Velvet Room.
(Awwwww, fuck) thought Yu.
“What more can I do?” asked Yu.
“One other is going to go through an ordeal much like your own.”
“Not my problem. But if he only gets one Persona, he’s screwed.”
“Which is why the Wild Card is now his power.” said Margaret.
Yu paused, waiting for the assisstant’s statement to sink in. When he did, he snatched the Compendium from Margaret and flipped through the pages.
“The hell!?!? IT’S COMPLETELY BLANK!”
“Now that you are done with your own journey, you need to mentor the new Wild Card.”
Igor held up a tarot card which showed a scene of the real world: a blonde teen in a white dress shirt and a passport sticking out from his shirt pocket.
“Why me?” groaned Yu.
Igor said nothing, and merely picked up the contract Yu signed a year ago.
“…..I hate you…”
“Farewell, Yu, our new client will soon arrive.”
Yu woke up a groaned. Well, that sucked.
About an hour late, the train stopped at a station halfway to Ota.
A teen stumbled through the aisle of the train car, but stopped when he saw Yu.
“Oh. Uh. Uhmmm….this is gonna sound weird, but I think I’ve seen you in a dream…do you know a guy named Igor? Short, creepy, nose that would make Pinocchio jealous?”
“Oh cool, you must be Yu Narukami.” said the new Wild Card. “My name is…”
OK, readers, what’s this boy’s name? Is it:
1. Isaac Baker
2. James Field
3. Nate Wilder
4. Jay Matthews?
