(When you have 10+ RP posts with the same character, contact me either on this account or my regular account. All I need to know is the characters name. If you want a specific title, go for it. Note that the title MUST contain said characters name. And yes. You're about to see me RP with myself. You're not imagining things. For the first post ONLY I'll control your character in this thread - that is, where s/he wakes up. What s/he does afterwards is up to you. As always, no God-modding allowed.)
Waking up in a dark, desolate and cold place, one could only wonder what happened. Akinobu stood up in the middle of the street and looked around. His face was pale and sweat ran down his face. It was obvious he had two thoughts right now: why was he here and how would he escape. From the dark, beings known only as Shadows seemed to prowl and slowly come towards him. It was obvious, he only had two options: Run or die trying. The Shadows seemed to crawl ever closer to him. Now then... What will you do, Furukawa Akinobu?
(The threads will vary how they start. Sometimes - like now - Shadows will be close from the get go. Other times, they seem to lurk around but isn't coming closer whatsoever. In either case, the Shadows won't attack from the get-go. Posts in the Awaken threads does NOT count towards your Summon Count, so don't bother spamming skills.)

(Note that finding weapons prior to activating your Persona is fine, but don't expect to deal any damage with them.)
"...Shit, this place huh?" Akinobu looked around. Though he did recognize the place - he had been here a lot about a year ago - but this time it felt... Different. Like, it was more twisted. He couldn't explain it. "Son of a bitch..." he gritted his teeth irritated and took out his Magician card. He hurried over to a nearby street corner and looked around. "Come on, Orion... Come out!" he mumbled... To no avail. "...Shit, would have been too easy, huh?" he laughed and made a dash for it down the street. He headed into a nearby house and looked around for something - anything - that could be used as a weapon, but found nothing. "Oh come on! You've gotta be fuckin' kidding me!" he said irritated as the roof fell down around him. He quickly jumped back and noticed a baseball bat. "Baseball bat? Better than nothing, I guess..." he muttered and picked it up. He headed back outside and made another dash down the street. One thing was clear; he was in Hirasaka. Or the dark version of it, rather. "...Come on, I have to... Huh?" he stopped in the middle of a step and noticed a nearby thing entering an alley. "A Shadow? No, what if it's a human? ...Damn it, here goes nothing!" he mumbled and hurried into the alley... Only to see not one, but THREE Maya's staring at him. "Son.Of.A.BITCH," he said and turned around, just to be blocked by another Maya. "...No way... Right?" Akinobu mumbled. "There's no way I'll die this easily...!" he gripped the baseball bat with both hands and swung towards the Maya blocking the exit, but it merely dodged and lunged towards him. He side-stepped and noticed that the way was open and started running again. "I have to get out of here... Somehow!" he thought and hurried into another house.
(Note: Amount of Shadows your character will fight will be random. Lowest will be 2, highest will be 5. Before you beat them all, you're unable to leave Dark Nikawa (initial trip). And no, you can't tell me how many you want to fight; nor what you want to fight. It'll be random (I'll decide on it in the spur of the moment - literally.)

Having found a baseball bat, Akinobu hurries off but ends up in an alley way, lured there by the Shadows. He manages to get away unharmed, but fighting alone against four Shadows will prove to be quite a task, despite how weak they might be. The Mayas seem to dodge all of his blows with ease and lunge towards him in order to attack. He hurries from house to house, hoping to find something - anything - that might give him a way to fight back. Though he once had the power of Persona, this power seems to be gone. For what reason, he cannot say. As he keeps running, the four Mayas slowly come towards him and manages to strike him. The wounds are light but there nonetheless. 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. Furukawa Akinobu, what will you do next? Will you keep running? Or will you try fighting back? Only time will tell.

The pain was real but at the same time surreal.
He was used to fights - no coming around that.
However, the pain from those Shadows? With no armor from his Persona, there was NO WAY for him to be able to fight back without taking quite a few hits!
"Shit... God damn SHADOWS..." he muttered as a Maya lunged into a wall behind him, causing most of the house to fall down above it, though it emerged seemingly unharmed.
"Now you're just fucking kidding me!" he said irritated and made a dash for it.
He had dropped the baseball bat after the initial attacks earlier and it was obvious that he wasn't going to make it out of this alive.
"I have to do something... If I can't summon Orion, then what ways do I have to fight?! I can sense ghosts, sure, but what damn good will do me?!" he gritted his teeth irritated as a Maya struck him from behind, causing him to fall forward down a small slope. He turned around as two of the Maya's raised their arms to attack him once more. "Two or three more of those hits and I'm dead!" he thought and jumped back. "Back then, I had the healing spell Dia... Why the hell won't that work now?!" he panted heavily and looked at his Magician card. Oddly enough it looked... Dim. As if all power from it was drained. Had something happened to it? "...I... Refuse to die this easily...!" he stood back up and panted heavily as the four Mayas looked at him. "...Do or die, that's the two options I have," he mumbled and clenched his fists tightly. "...Now then... Who should I kill first...?" he muttered as the four Mayas seemed to surround him.

Akinobu was surrounded by the four Shadows. It was obvious death was coming. Without the power of Persona, what was he supposed to do about it? The answer was... Fight back. If he doesn't fight back, he'll die anyway. However, even if he DID fight back, he can't harm them. He was stuck in a do-or-die situation. As he clenches his fists around the weapon, the Persona card in his pocket lights up. He hurries to take it out, only to realize that it's back - the power of Persona he once had is finally back in action. A smile spreads across his face as he holds up the card above his head. Now, go and fight, Furukawa Akinobu!
(OoC: 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. All third posts - before someone asks - will end with "Now, go and fight, [character name]!)

Akinobu grinned happily as he saw the light come from his Persona card. He wasn't sure what the cause was that he could use it again but he quickly pulled it out. "Come on out, the greatest hunter to ever live! Orion!" he said as the familiar Persona smiled at him. "Sweet! Time to kick some Shadow ass!" he smiled and dashed towards the closest Shadow. He pulled up his baseball bat and saw it visibly transform into the bow he had used in the past and shortly after, a cloak covered his body. "Go to Hell!" he quickly fired two shots and struck down one of the Maya's. "One down, three to go," he said and held up his hand. "Dia!" he said and felt a warm light surround him. He smiled happily as he felt his wounds slowly disappear on him and let out a sigh of relief once done. One of the Maya's leaped towards him and held up his hand. "Thunder Clash!" he said as electricity started surrounding his hand and he forced it into the Maya. The two remaining Mayas hurried off and he sat down and panted heavily. "Shit... I don't remember it being so damn hard to fight..." he said and looked at his bow. He smiled calmly but heard a noise in the distance. Jumping back on his feet, he searched out the sound for the noise. Whatever it was, he was finally prepared to fight back... Or so he hoped.
(OoC: Akinobu's "summon chant" if you will is not required that you post. He just felt like saying that.)

The two Maya's who escaped seemed to watch - if they could do that to begin with - from afar. He had finally obtained his lost power of Persona but it was a lot harder for him to use than in the past. Maybe this past year had dulled his edge? He wasn't sure but before he had a chance to react, the two Mayas came back and lunged themselves towards him. One of them lightly scratched his shoulder, but the other one managed to tackle him into a wall, causing him to lose his breath. He felt weaker with each passing minute and realized that if this kept up, there'd be no way in Hell he'd come back to Nikawa. A small smile spread across his face as he looked up on the two Shadows. His resolve was set. Now all that was left was to finish it all of.

Akinobu kept walking down the familiar - though dark - streets and soon ended up in front of a nearby train station. He raised an eyebrow and looked around. Where the hell were the last two Mayas? As he pondered this, out of nowhere, an attack struck his back with enough force for him to fall down on the ground. "Shit!" he exclaimed and turned around and fired an arrow into the darkness but it seemed to have no effect. "Who the hell's there?!" he shouted. Without warning, the two Mayas emerged from the shadows and lunged themselves at him. He fired two arrows in quick succession into the first one, causing it to disappear in a puff of black smoke. The second one, however, managed to strike his leg with enough power to dislocate a joint or two. Smirking coldly, he held up his bow with a relaxed expression. "Torrent Shot!" he shouted. His arrow seemed to fire by itself but he knew it was in reality the power of his Persona that helped him. The last Maya disappeared and he stumbled towards the nearby train and got inside. Just as he did, the train started moving, as if on schedule. "At least I'll get home in one piece..." he mumbled quietly to himself as his consciousness drifted away. This year away had REALLY taken its toll on his body... He could only hope he'd be fine in future battles, too.
Far off in the distance, a lone shadow watched. It was impossible to see who - or what - it was. "..." The shadow vanished, as if it had never been there to begin with...

Akinobu woke up back in his room. He looked around with a panicked expression on his face, before falling down towards his pillows again. He panted heavily. It felt like a horrible nightmare but... At the same time, it was so real. Was it really a nightmare? There only proof he had was the card laying on the night table next to him. A dim glow spread from it. On the picture was two eyes, two hands and a fire between it all. Underneath, the number I as well as the word 'Magician' could be read. This was his proof - Dark Nikawa was real. However, what he will do about it... Only time will tell.

Akinobu woke up, panting heavily. Sweat was dripping down his entire body and he couldn't seem to calm down. He looked at his alarm clock; it was already 3 AM*. Turning around, he saw Mitsune sleeping quietly next to him. Akinobu smiled weakly and stroked her cheek. He felt thirsty so he decided to get out of bed, figuring it was all a horrible dream. However, as he tried standing up, his leg refused to carry him, causing him to fall towards the wall. He looked down and realized at least one or two joints were dislocated, but nothing else. Worried, he looked at the night table next to him. A card was laying on it. It was a picture of two eyes and two hands with a fire between. "...My Magician card... It saved me, huh?" he mumbled weakly to himself and sat back down again and looked at the card before quickly putting it away in his wallet. "...Shit, I need to sleep..." he shut his eyes and laid down again. The next morning, he didn't recall anything of what had happened the night before and merely assumed that he dislocated his joint due to sleepwalking.
LEFT THREAD, END THREAD
(Note: your character wakes up in their bed, even if they get transported early in the morning. Time goes much faster in Dark Nikawa but no one notices your character being missing. Your character is always present in the real Nikawa during your initial trip and doing things as normal. It's more so your consciousness that goes to Dark Nikawa on the initial trip).
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: 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.
