Hax woke up and looked around. There was something creepy about this place - it was completely void of life. From the shadows, multiple beings - if it could be called that - seemed to walk back and forth. The beings seemed to avoid coming too close - was it from fear or did they try to attack from a distance? Only time would tell. With only do or die as the possible options, Hax could do nothing else but try to escape this literal Hell. Now then, what will you do, Hakkusu Guritchi?
(Side-note: In case you don't know/forgot/something else, I take control of your character (briefly) for the first post. From this point onward, he's yours to control again. Have fun!)
After seeing the strange world and the movements in the shadows Hax felt the sense of life or death and if he didn't go towards the movements he would die anyway, so he moved towards the shadow. He felt the lurking of life on the other side of the shadows, but this life was the life of a predator like a bear. With each step he took he felt dread around him but as he did in Rise's house he hollowed himself out. It was his first and best tactic that he had. After walking for a bit he met horror, monsters made of tar were there and they shook Hax out of his hollow state and placed fear into him. "H...He...HELP!"

(My apologies for taking for-fucking-ever in replying (feel free to quote me on that); I'm generally exhausted after my apprenticeship and I have a visitor over for a few more days. Once August ends (more specific, August 29) my apprenticeship also ends, so I should have more free time. I mean, unless they hire me. At the moment, I have literally no idea what's going to happen. So yeah. Again, I apologize.
Side-note: Like in a regular RP thread, I'm using what you said/did in the previous post to start out the next one. E.g, Hax screaming for help is something that happened, so it's mentioned briefly. Also, I'm supposed to be the one who chooses what you'll fight in the Awakening thread but as I didn't notice that (my fault!) when I initially read this post after you made it, I'm having you fight... Something.)
Strange beings that looked like tar approached him. Were they monsters...? Hax screamed "HELP!" hoping for someone to hear him. However, no one appeared. He was all alone in this dark, desolate place. One of the beings - known as a Maya - lunged towards him but ended up crashing into a wall. It crawled back onto the ground and turned around and looked at him, lunging towards him once more. It narrowly missed but the wall above it collapsed, causing another being to emerge from the shadows - it looked like a giant insect of some kind. Behind the insect, a large humanoid being approached as well. The three of them clearly had no intention of letting Hax getting away unharmed. They moved towards him, as if they were predators hunting for their next prey. This isn't some bad dream you can just wake up from. This is the reality. This is the reality for everyone with the power of Persona. Hakkusu Guritchi, what will you do next? Will you keep running? Or will you try fighting back? Only time will tell.
(Side-note: I never said that fighting different kinds of Shadows in the same thread was against the rules in the Awakening thread. After my next post, you can start fighting back against them. Good luck! Also, I use purple when the character in their respective Awakening thread talks. It's not a mistake on my end; just a FYI. Upon awakening their Persona, the color changes to blue, as if it was a normal RP thread. Should you be colorblind, inform me and I'll just use bold or italics instead.
Enemies: TUTORIAL MAYA x 1. TUTORIAL BEETLE x 1. TUTORIAL GIGAS x 1.
Difference between those and actual Shadows is that they are weaker and weak to all elements. Despite this, killing them all in a single post is STILL against the rules. The lowest amount of posts (from both of us) are 5. After my third, you can start fighting back. After my fourth, you're free to kill all of them. After my fifth, your character automatically passes out and wakes up in their bed with their Persona card somewhere in the room (be it in the wallet or somewhere else doesn't matter - it's up to you). Once your fifth post ends (whether you choose to kill all enemies in post 4 or not doesn't matter), the thread is automatically over. Summoning here does NOT count towards your Summon Count.)
Hax was terrified right now, one of the monsters jumped at him but missed by a few inches and then did it again. He kept telling himself that it was a dream but he some how knew it was real. Hax was scared for his life but he didn't have anything to fight with nor any experience fighting. All he could do was run and evade and that was what he did. He ran around the monsters in a circle as they leapt at him and he moved around avoiding them. After some time passed he stopped after the Beetle like one missed him, for some reason Rise and his sisters flashed in front of his eyes and he knew then that he had to fight. "I won't run now."

It seemed as if Hax's resolve was set. The three Shadows stopped in the middle of a movement, as if sensing his resolve. A silent voice echoed somewhere far off, but at the same time very close. A lone blue card appeared in front of Hax's eyes. It was a Tarot Card. It had a skull motif and the number XIII (13) beneath it. Beneath the number, the word 'Death' could be read. "Thou art I... I am Thou... Speak my name, bearer of Persona, and I shalt become Thy aid," the voice echoed. It sounded like it came from the card. "Thou seek strength, dost Thou not? I shalt heed Thy call at your command. Speak my name and I shalt become Thy aid," the voice continued calmly. A gentle light began spreading from the card, as if it was trying to protect him from the Shadows. Now, go and fight, Hakkusu Guritchi!
(OoC: Just your generic friendly reminder that will show up in every single one of those God damn posts: After the third post from me ends, you're free to start fighting back. However, you can't kill all Shadows in a single post (you'll see why in my next post). Should you ATTEMPT doing so, I'll just summon Death to KO your character and force you to wake up back in Nikawa. What, you call that God-modding? Well boo-hoo. I told you that you weren't allowed to. Tough luck. Get over it. Also, Persona/e got olive when speaking (if you're color blind, it's both bold and italics at once.))
This voice meant something, it was like it was a missing part of Hax and then it clicked. Hax suddenly shot out his hand out and crushed the card, which shattered the glass. "Soul Reaper, Come Forth!" Suddenly a black robe appeared then a scythe, then face was shown, it was a skeleton and it was Hax's Persona. "Soul Reaper, Mudoon." The skeleton obeyed it's master, quickly sent a black swirl at the mass of tar that was in the middle. The monster was sent back an inch and had a hit on it. After that Hax went for the bug and brought piercing blows from Soul Reaper's Double Fangs, though it didn't do much.

(I.Am.Slow.As.Sin. Seriously, bug me to post more on this account. Seriously, I'm asking you to. I take no offense from it. Unless a lot of shit is happening at the moment. That's another story.)
The Maya disappeared in - what one could assume - painless (and probably screaming) death. The two remaining Shadows flinched shortly as the Persona attacked the Beetle, but to seemingly no avail. One of the Shadows - the Gigas - began running towards Hax and managed to knock him into a nearby wall. The other Shadow, the Beetle, quickly followed up and seemingly fly-tackled Hax, still in the wall. The two Shadows began turning around, certain that their foe was defeated. After a few steps, they turned back around and looked towards the wall which they had pushed Hax into. Even though it looked like it could collapse at any given moment - as could most of the buildings around here - it didn't.
(OoC: Feel free to finish the fight in the next post. Also, Hax took a minimal amount of damage - those guys can barely cut through cold butter with a hot knife, so don't worry about that part.)
DarknessDevouring: And it's open again. I promise I'll NEVER activate it again, unless it's REALLY required (in which case, I'll warn you guys 24 hours in advance; punch me otherwise!)

Many-Named Beast: Hello. Just a certain absentee chimera, who may hing around again.

kurama: It's been a long time. I'll come by to check every two weeks or so. Just in case someone show up.

Many-Named Beast: I'm mostly on another forum now, but I felt like checking back here. It looked dead, but I made the post anyway. Thank you for answering, by the way.
