    Summary

    The legendary, eponymous firebird from Greek and Roman mythology - the phoenix - was said to have its tears grant immortality, and that killing it would merely see them rise from the ashes. Yukiko Amagi, for one reason or another, couldn't help but associate with the myth on that measure; here she was, accused of a crime everyone in Inaba knew she didn't commit, and yet was sent to Tokyo for one year under the threat of rehabilitation. Regardless, it was perhaps to be said that, if nothing else, she too would rise from the ashes of her bondage to take wing in a far more incendiary form...

    ...one that would see the underground of Tokyo set ablaze.

    ~

    A revival of 'Fall With The Petals' that incorporates the canon from Persona 5 Royal alongside more quality writing and forethought put into it.

    Summary

    Toshi Densetsu - Urban Legend

    Setting: Spice City, several decades after the esper-terrorist group, Scar, attempted global domination

    Espers are a thing of the past. No one has seen of nor heard of an actual esper in so long that they are considered “extinct”. The mention of such beings is considered to be a myth or an urban legend. To be an esper in Spice City today would be considered a capital crime, for which the government has established and maintained an anti-esper task force.

    Enter Shigeo Kageyama. 14 year-old student and bully magnet. He lives his life in constant fear that someone will discover his secret. That he is, in fact, an esper.

    Summary

    Having moved from the "tropics" your parents considered Florida, you've been sent to live with your Uncle in Ohio. Yeah, you weren't exactly excited to hear that. If you were going to leave the few friends you had here, at least be sent somewhere cool instead of... This place. Apparently it's named Inston, which is a place you've certainly never heard of. Hopefully you can survive in a new town.

    She doesn't realize she's not alone out there.

    Summary

    Here's the thing about stories: they have to come from somewhere. Stories had to be built from reality, and as such, all of them on some level, had a grain of truth to them. Even tall tales of a Boogeyman- a Batman.

    It just so happened that, however, the 'myth of Batman' had a substantial bit more truth to it than the child populace of Gotham would like to believe.

    It just wasn't them he was out to get.

    (Well. Unless they needed a home.)

    Summary

    In which--during a long wait for work on Day 1 of the second week--Koki Kariya tells a very bored Uzuki Yashiro a little story of how a particular Reaper Sport got struck from the books.

    (Suffice it to say that it got a little too exciting when a certain Harrier fledgeling bent the letter of the rules into a sine wave.)

    Trigger warnings: Guns, alcohol, Russian roulette imagery (though nobody dies). Tagged/rated just to be on the safe side.

    Summary

    Featuring Elias “Blitz” Kotz, and Gilles “Montagne” Toure, and the malevolent entities that imprint on them.

    The setting takes place in Bordeaux, skirting the city limits. Strange phenomena have been recorded near the outskirts of the Wine Capital, and Rainbow suspects it being White Mask in nature. Little does anyone know that the least of their worries would be White Masks in this investigation.

    This story is based on two entities that reside on my family’s land, my mother and aunt both being witness to one of the two entities.

    Happy Halloween y’all, and enjoy the ficlet.

    WARNING: Reader discretion advised. This ficlet contains disturbing/unsettling imagery, gore, major death.

    Summary

    Do you happen to know any urban legends? The stories that seem too good to be true? Stories that shock you, scandalize, entertain you after another long day of routine. Stories that return to you at night as you’re lying in your berth and staring at the ceiling, sleeplessly reconsidering them, analysing, doubting, unnerving yourself… Are they real or not?… Are they bound to happen to you or not?
    Shall you ask Skyfire about his friend’s horrible demise (possibly due to finding dead turborat in his energon fries) first thing in the morning? Or pester Ratchet about chances of catching cosmic rust from eating solely red energon goodies if some convoluted conditions are met? Demand reports from Jazz and Prowl detailing how often mechs discover severed hooks dangling from their doors after returning from their local Lovers’ Lane and what exactly was determined by investigators in each of these cases? Fire-breathing dragons, skeletal avian monsters living inside asteroids being simultaneously their home, egg and dinner, or giant purple griffins are real, after all, then how other things are not?
