Persona 4 Fan Fiction

"Autumn Wind" by Mayumi Hirtzel

In early 2009, the videogame “Shin Megami Tensei Persona 4”, by videogame developer Atlus, stole over 100 hours of my life. It also stole a little piece of my heart.

The game follows mostly-silent protagonist Seta Souji/Narukami Yu, but I identified with high-kicking girl sidekick Satonaka Chie. Chie was a tomboy. She trained hard. She fought monsters to protect her friends. She ate steak like a wolverine. And she bullied the boy she liked because she wasn’t confident enough to just be herself around him, and let herself be open to her tenderer emotions. At least, that was the way I played it.

From 2009 until 2012 or so, the characters of “Persona 4” took over my imagination. The massive serial “1 More Chance!” is the centerpiece of my version of events to take place after that game, but there are other, shorter stories to go with it, too. Take a look around them, and I hope you enjoy! In addition to chapters and other stories, you’ll also see some more general blog posts with references to those stories below.
