  2. Summary

    You've done it. You've won. Lord English has been defeated. The three-slash-five-session catastrophe that's ruled and ruined all your lives is almost over. All that's left to do is wait for your Universe Tadpole to grow into a Universe Frog so you can claim your Prize. You can finally relax and take care of the things that had to be left by the wayside during the mad scramble to the finish. You can all take it easy now. Right?

    Yeah. Right.

    When two new planets slot themselves into place in orbit around Skaia, no one is all that surprised. SBURB was bound to throw something their way, after all. Sure, no one was expecting two 'new' Players, but that's besides the point.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Things don't get any simpler in the new Universe, either.

    After all, how could they, in a world born from five Game Sessions combined into one?

    Summary

    Akechi’s smiling, and the barrel of the gun shines brightly as it presses against Akira’s temple. The metal’s cold, strangely impersonal, considering Akechi’s standing so close to Akira. Akira can feel the heat of the detective, the traitor, feeling the tremble of his hand as the gun digs a little deeper into his forehead.

    Akechi smiles.

    Akira can only think, for that brief moment, about how sad that fake smile is.

    A bang.

    Loud, it rings Akira’s ears, stings the skin of his face with burning embers.

    The world goes to a peaceful, blissful, black.

    Summary

    Yosuke continues to twirl his knife, wrapped up in his own world and worries, finally relaxing after a whole year of being wound up.

    He doesn't even realize the small child who’s walking home, the child with messy black hair and ruddy red cheeks, look on in awe at the twirling spinning knife. The child holds onto his shopping bags from Junes and see’s the shimmering of the metal, see’s sharp gleam.

    The child, who’s nine years old and living for the spring and summer alone because his parents have jobs overseas, gets a new goal.

    Summary

    The thing about having given your heart, your service, and most of your soul to your country, Soujiro thought, mouthing at an unlit cigarette as he sat uselessly by Akira's bedside for the second night in a row, watching that the kid kept breathing through his concussion... The thing was, you either broke, or you learned to appreciate the simpler things in life. Fine coffee. Fresh curry. Regular customers.

    Old friends.

    Summary

    All Goro Akechi wanted was to be a well-respected detective. If that meant enduring a slew of meaningless fluff cases assigned by the higher-ups, so be it. If it meant spending his free time chasing after baseless rumors about a high school gang of self-described "social reformers", fine.

    Except the rumors aren't so baseless after all, and as he attempts to catch these 'Phantom Thieves' in an actual, documented act of wrongdoing, he finds himself becoming entangled with the gang more deeply than he ever intended - all thanks to their leader, who decided to take a special interest in him. An obnoxiously flirtatious interest.
