A 1x1 with @Takumi

Taking place after the end of Trouble In Paradise, Yusuke finds himself lost in another universe and reunites with his friend Yato for yet another adventure.



Yusuke Kitagawa had no qualms about leaving his dorm late at night after a long session of painting. He needed to stretch his legs, intake some cool, night air, and most importantly: wander to a convince store to buy a bite to eat. He hadn't stopped his painting marathon all day, not even to grab himself some sustenance. By the time night had fallen and he realized the emptiness of his stomach, he also realized that there was not a single speck of food to be found in his dorm room. Since it was typical of him to be so forgetful when it came to nourishment, the young artist wasn't surprised in the slightest. He simply gathered what little money he had and left without cleaning a splatter of paint from his hands. While he found the need for food bothersome at times like this, it would be negligent of him to remain peckish when he needed to keep focused on his inspiration.

It was strangely quiet that night. He saw no other students from his academy roaming the streets and could only hear a faint jingle from the keys that hung on the right side of his pants. He was rather fatigued, however, from a lack of food and sleep. So perhaps there was more going on than he was aware of. In fact, there was a lot more going on than he realized. For the second time in his life, Yusuke was about to have contact with a world outside of his own. It hadn't been long ago that he had ended up lost on Isle Delfino with a group of strangers from other universes. He thought about it a lot, but didn't expect something so wondrous would ever happen to him again. But, just as he had gotten used to being at home and the excitement of that adventure had settled down, he would find himself in another unique circumstance.

The sleepy male rubbed his eyes as he was walking along, failing to realized that the world around him suddenly looked... different. His environment still looked Japanese and with the streets dark, it was hard to recognize much of a change immediately. The first change he noticed, however, startled him enough to invoke a gasp from his lips.



"Huh--? What the--"

The artist's eyes grew wide at the sight of a large, moth-like creature that appeared to be hostile. It was unlike anything he had ever seen before.



"A...shadow?" he mumbled, uncertain. It certainly reminded him of creatures he had battled in his own world, but something about it felt... different. And that's because it wasn't a shadow and he wasn't in his own world anymore. The creature before him was a phantom and he had landed in the world of Yato, a friend he knew from his adventure on Isle Delfino. Phantoms couldn't ordinarily be seen by people, but for some reason Yusuke could see them. Maybe it was because he wasn't ordinary, he was a persona user. Maybe it was because he had made contact with Yato in the past and something within him had changed. Either way, Yusuke wouldn't be contemplating these things at the moment. Instead, he turn and ran.

"Something is very wrong here!" he called out, scrambling to pull his phone from his pocket as he ran. He did the first thing he knew to do whenever he encountered a problem in his own world: he called Joker. His leader always knew what to do!

But in his haste, however, Yusuke's phone slipped from his hands and dropped to the ground, lost as the creature pursued him. He cursed and continued to run, wondering how it was that he got himself into this situation.​

Things had been hectic after the events that transpired after being on Isle Delfino. Luckily things seemed to have calmed, the former Delivery god hasn't gotten much business the passed day or two. Plus Hiyori had been a bit busy, which saddened him quite a bit. When he wasn't busy thinking of how she was though, he thought a lot about his 'death' while there, more importantly, those supposed life journals. They really bothered him, more specifically the thought of being forgotten. Though that'd never happen, right?



"Hey, Yato. How long are you gonna mope?" Yukine sighed. Earning a groan from the god, before the track suit wearing man sat up.



"Yukine, let's go get something to eat." He offered rather suddenly, causing the blonde to blink. Yato figured it wouldn't hurt to possibly visit Hiyori or Kofuku right? Might as well bring a few drinks as well if Kofuku was up for it. So without further ado, he dragged his Regalia out and about for the night.

Both Regalia and master walked for a good couple blocks. The streets however, were quiet. Even so, the god's blue eyes still caught sight of a few phantoms in the shadows, mostly small ones that didn't pose too much of a threat.

"There's a storm tonight." He muttered aloud, noticing a large amount of negativity in the distance, almost like dark shadows forming a sort of beacon. It wasn't his concern right now though, because he was sure another god would handle that. Something else seemed...off tonight though. He just couldn't place what, but unbeknownst to the self proclaimed god of fortune he would find out pretty soon.

After some time of running, a thought occurred to Yusuke. If this 'shadow' (which was actually a phantom, but he didn't know that) was actually chasing him in the real world, maybe his persona abilities would work in the real world too. Since nobody seemed to be around to help him and he wouldn't be able to contact Joker or anyone else without a phone, trying to use his powers seemed to be the best bet he had of defending himself. And so, the teen halted his lanky legs to a stop and whipped around dramatically, like a living work of abstract art in motion, and faced this mysterious threat.

"Vile fiend!" he cried out, "You will soon learn I am not one to be trifled with!"

Inhaling deeply Yusuke then cried for his persona to appear at his side. In response to this summoning, a puff of smoke went off in his face. When it cleared, Yusuke found himself to be wearing his Fox mask, but the rest of his phantom thief outfit seemed to be... missing. It was as if his powers had responded to his call, but had not fully gone to his aide.



"Uh... per...sona?"

CRASH!

The flying creature lunged at Yusuke, causing him to jump back in response.

"S-Stay away from me you large--yet aesthetically pleasing--beast!" he spat out before turning to run once more.

Great. What exactly was he going to do now?

"?!" Hearing the crash alerted Yato, who paused just short of the convenience store he was going to go to.

"Yukine, I think troubles headed this way." Why now? Why couldn't it be after he ate? With a sigh he ran towards the sound of the racket, Yukine calling for him to wait up while running after the god. Eventually turning a corner and skidding to a stop, the so called god of fortune questioned his luck at seeing the giant moth phantom. Yato clicked his tongue jumping back, he held out his hands and called upon Yukine's Shinki form, the Sekki. In the land of the gods (or in this case, in Yato's general world), Regalia-also known as Shinki-were the protectors of their gods against phantoms such as these. And working together, they slayed said phantoms which usually formed from strong negativity. Yukine's Sekki form was different than it was back on Isle Delefino however, being two twin blades instead of one singular katana.

Yato nearly charged, not having noticed exactly what the phantom had been chasing just yet. Luckily, Yukine spotted Yusuke first.

Running right towards them it seemed.



"Uh, Yato-"

"Yusuke?" Yato blinked, then-



"Wait, he can see it?!" Yato blurted, slightly confused.

Think, think, think!

What should I do?

Yusuke continued to run, his gray eyes scanning the area for any sight of something that might be able to help him out. Why did these sort of things always seem to happen to him? He didn't mind bizarre adventures so long as they inspired him, but dangerous ones--causing him to run for his life from monsters--weren't very welcome.

Unable to find any source of assistance, Yusuke ran as fast as his legs could carry him. He would only stop upon hearing his name. The artist haulted to a stop, blinking in surprise as he would remove his kitsune mask.



"Yato-sama?"
he questioned, his mouth falling open in surprise. The young phantom thief was entirely baffled. His first thought was that maybe he had somehow been brought to Isle Delfino again. But that couldn't be right, could it? It didn't appear as if he was on an island. He still seemed to be in Japan...

Nevertheless, Yusuke didn't have time to figure out his situation right now--or even have a proper conversation with Yato. Not while they were in danger.

"I fear I may require some assistance," he told the god, turning his head in the direction of the creature that was now relentlessly pursuing them both.

Yato was about as confused as Yusuke, but his attention went right back to the phantom. He had a few things he wantef to ask, but kept them in his head for now. "So you can see phantoms! Well, don't worry, me and Yukine will take care of this one no problem." The god answered confidently.



"Just stay behind us for now, then we can figure out what's really going on after." He added, though maybe staying behind him wasnt the best idea, but anyway...

Yato charged forward then, jumping in the air and bringing his twin blades down on the moth phantoms face. He had faith in Yukine, so he wasn't concerned if Yukine wasn't sharp enough cause that totally wouldn't be a problem right now.

If that didn't work right off the bat, the god would go for a leg or a wing, then try to create some distance.

From there, he'd try to keep it's attention on him, easy.

"This big ugly thing is called a Phantom or Ayakashi, and they're native to my world." He called to Yusuke, not taking his eyes off of it for a second.

The fact that Yusuke could see Phantoms was definitely odd, but the boy wasn't aware just how bizarre his circumstances were. Instead of worrying about these things, the artist took a step back and nodded when Yato would offer to take care of the problem. It wasn't a shadow and he didn't really have enough power to assist in the battle. That's all he needed to know for now.

He watched as the god attacked this monster--going for the face. In response, it quickly flapped its wings in an attempt to blow Yato back away from itself. In the mean time, Yusuke moved even further back to try and avoid the situation--only to completely lose his focus when spotting his phone lying on the ground behind the moth phantom.

"Oh, my phone," he chirped, opting to sneak around the fight in an attempt to grab the phone he had dropped a minute ago when running. He walked behind the creature, only to find that it wasn't distracted enough--or injured enough just yet by Yato's attack--to ignore him. It turned around and scooped Yusuke up in it's mouth as if he were a chew toy.



"Eh!? Release me at once! I swear to you, vile fiend, I am quite inedible!"

Well, things werent as easy as Yato thought, digging his heels in the groumd to keep balanced, he went in for another attack-

But the phantom suddenly turned and apparently got Yusuke.

"Y'know, I'm starting to see some similarities with Hiyori." Yato commented with a sigh. Jumping into the air, he'd land atop the phantom's head, intending to get it to hopefully let go of Yusuke. From there he'd stab one of Yukine's blades into the phantom, his other arm grabbing onto Yusuke to make sure that if the Phantom Thief fell Yato would have a good hold on him to keep him from getting hurt. Or if the giant phantom decided to try and throw them both he could make sure Yusuke didn't end up crash landing somewhere.

"You okay, Yusuke?" He asked, though seemed fine so far from his exclamation it could turn ugly pretty quickly.

Either way as long as it let Yusuke go with as little injury to his friend as possible it was a sort of win for Yato. Besides, he didn't want Yusuke to possibly get hurt by this thing using him like a chew toy.

"Hey, I'm pretty sure I'd taste much better than this guy here!" He taunted, unsure if it'd even take the bait at all.
