Hi there everyone! This is my first time doing a crossover between these two. It was stuck in my head for so long that I couldn't help but type it down.
Just to make it clear, the story starts just before Persons 4 begins, so that means it's only been a year

This is a rewrite of the original chapter; please review your opinion about this chapter
Chapter 1: All endings are but new beginnings
"I want to die!"
No, you don't
"Everyone I love is gone! There's no reason for me to exist in this world anymore!"
Find your purpose in life
"Mommy and Daddy are always angry because of me… maybe if I disappeared, they would smile again,"
…Please, for once…hear my voice
"I'm crippled now…I don't want to live if this is how it turns out…please…someone…just end me!"
"I won't let them take my money! I would rather die than let them have it!"
Listen to me
"We were supposed to be together forever…now she's gone…what left is there for me to turn to!"
"There's no hope left here,"
Cause you won't have a second chance
"GOD! JUST KILL ME NOW!"
Why can't you all understand how lucky you are?
"What is fate? Is it just a simple four letter word that describes our life? A way to explain the ironic things that shape our future? Or is it more?"
"How strong is fate? How deep are the roots of fate in our life?"
In a place no man may ever wish to reach, a figure sat on an elegant chair. The figure was man with black hair tied in a ponytail, his face obscured by an elegant butterfly mask. This figure was Philemon, an observer of the world's development and the guardian of Wild cards, those who are given the ability to summon, not one, but an infinite number of Personas. So far, there are four main Wild cards that were truly chosen by fate- Naoya Tōdō, Tatsuya Suou, Maya Amano, Aigis, and Minato Arisato.
Philemon sighed. On the endless checkered floor, there were only two things that touched its cold surface. The first being the silver throne in which Philemon sits while he observes the world, the second being a small yet elegant chest chained by multiple glowing chains spouting from the floor.
Philemon got up and walked towards the chest, which was emitting a bright green glow as it attempts to dissolve the chains, only for more chains to appear around it. It had been ten years since the object inside the chest appeared into their world and attempted to become one with what Philemon knew was a pending Wild card, whose fate had been sealed when Death had been trapped inside him. Not wanting for the boy to start earlier than he needs to be, Philemon intercepted the crystal and locked it in the chest, where it can never escape unless he says so...
Since then, the crystal could only yearn for it's accommodator
Philemon knew he was only supposed to observe the happenings of the world, but he couldn't bear to see the future Wild card, still a mere traumatized child that had just lost his parents, to be whisked away to another world and face the horrors of death again in such a young age. So he and Nyarlathotep, a previous watcher such as himself, decided to keep the crystal away from the boy until four Wild cards, not including the boy, have finished their ordeal while the fifth wild card begins his. So with the ending of Aigis' ordeal and the beginning of Seta Souji's ordeal, Philemon knew it was time.
Philemon grabbed the chest, almost immediately, the chains melted back into the ground, freeing the chest from its binds. But the chest cannot open yet, not as long as Philemon holds it in his grasp. "You have been waiting for so long now," Philemon said to the chest, the chest began to glow an intensifying green, as if responding "The ordeal this world has given him is over and he has become part of 'this side', if you join him, he will be forcibly brought back into 'that side' in a form quite different, yet the same," Philemon informed, the chest's light intensified, whispering it's accommodator's name in excitement.
Philemon raised the chest up high and said a short incantation. The chest broke open and a gush of wind erupted from the chest as a shimmering crystal flew out of the chest and vanished. Philemon made the chest vanish before staring at the spot where the Innocence disappeared "May fate guide you through this ordeal safely, Wild card of the Universe,"
I, Minato Arisato am used to loud noises, being that I was born in an urban environment, but this is just too much
"I wanna die! I wanna die!" screamed one of the essences forming the huge dog-like thing in front of me "Lord! Please let me die in peace!" screamed another. I rubbed my forehead in irritation; can't they keep it down for once? Just because I'm dead doesn't mean I can't hear them, quite contrary really. Being the seal that separates them from their supposed "salvation" means I've got more that 3 billion voices resonating in my head every second, all calling for death to fall upon them. I tried blocking them out many times, I even tried resounding to them to see if I could make them stop screaming for Nyx, but no such luck. So right now I'm perched on top of the gate, listening to music in my infinite battery mp3 to drown out to voices.
Hoorah for frozen time
I stared down at the thing that's causing the ruckus. It was a humungous, black thing similar to a shadow but it ain't. It had two heads, one on either side its body; it didn't have a solid form, since it's only made of peoples essences, so the thing had the color and the texture of a storm cloud. Like the last time I saw it, it was trying to pry out my essence from the door, it feels weird seeing that thing pulling the catalyst that held my soul in place. In truth, it's still holding my soul in place, well…at least part of it. You see, the soul can be divided into two things – The essence of the body, which is the side that holds your emotions and true being, it is also the side spiritualists uses when they do out-of-body experiences; and the consciousness of the body, which is the side that holds our experiences in life, it's also known as the string that binds us with our physical bodies. Right now, my essence is trapped in the stone me while my conscious is outside staring at the thing.
"No matter how long you try, you won't break it out," I whispered to myself so that the thing wouldn't hear me, but I doubt I needed to, judging from all the shouting the essences are doing. I wonder, could it hear them to? Could it hear the endless cries and wails the things forming it are doing? Maybe that's the reason it's doing that, not just because of the fact that it was made out if those essences, but maybe because it couldn't take the agonizing cries that it tries desperately to ease their pain.What am I thinking? I thought. There's no way that's possible! That thing is only supposed to be a collection of essences, there shouldn't be any consciousness in it…right?
…Even when I die I still get the headaches I thought as I felt my head split in immeasurable pain, I get headaches like this often due to the wails of the essence, not even Kenji and Junpei debating about a video game made me have such a painful headache …But this is…different I thought as my eyes widened in realization. I remember…I felt this before…but where? ... ! …I remember! The time when SEES first came to the gate!
How could I forget!? I thought. When my friends came here when I first became the seal, I had a splitting headache that almost caused me to faint! This is the same pain! Which means…Someone's trying to break into the gate! I realized Just when I did so, a blinding green light erupted in front of me, making me cover my eyes with my hand. What the heck is happening!? I thought once I realized the voices stopped echoing in my head. Once I noticed the light starting to dim, I slowly lifted my head and found myself staring at a woman with short white hair and yellow eyes
No way…can it be…?
"Minato-kun, it's been a while," Elizabeth said in relief. I blinked, is this for real? Am I really seeing this? Or is Erebus using the Essence in my head to project an illusion again?
"…It's really you, isn't it?" I asked the apple cut woman, Elizabeth gave me her signature smile, how long has it been since someone with positive feelings came to this place? …Oh right, a year…
"It's a miracle I was able to find you, I was about to search for you when his mysterious green light surrounded me and gave me the coordinates to your resting place…" I cringed at the last part, it ain't fun being reminded that you're the living dead "…I thought it was master Philemon…no, that power didn't feel anything like him…it felt more like…you, Minato," Philemon? Power? What is Elizabeth talking about?
"…I shouldn't be wondering over this now, I have to do it quickly," Elizabeth said to herself as she opened my compendium, I just stared at her "…you want to free me?" Elizabeth gave me a lopsided smile as she took a card out of the compendium "…What else would I do here?" I was about to retort when I noticed the Arcana in her hands. It was different from the normal Arcana, it held no picture in it, only an intensifying glow
The Universe Arcana
"…Don't underestimate this card, Minato," Elizabeth told me "It has the power to bring all worlds to either their Salvation, or their day of reckoning," I blinked worlds? "When your comrades had given you their power at that last battle, it was only enough to summon a fourth of the Universe's power. If I use the presence that brought me here and my own power as a wild card, I might be able to use your bonds to form as the new source of the seal's power," I frowned, she might be able to, that means there's still a chance it might not work and the seal will break once my soul is released and the Fall would begin…but, if it does work, then I'll be able to live with my friend again and be a normal teenager…
"'the power of the Universe is infinite' huh," If that is true, than there's a higher possibility that the seal won't break and I'll be free
"…go for it," I said, Elizabeth smiled, but I saw something in that smile that told me that something would go wrong "Wait…what's the catch?" Elizabeth stopped smiling and blinked.
"Catch? What do you mean?" I sighed, I forgot how new Elizabeth is to modern human things, such as slang "I mean, your not telling my something," Elizabeth's frown deepened "…I should have known that you would see through it. There is as you say…a catch," She shifted uncomfortably in midair "If I use the substance that brought me here, due to it coming from another world, once you are free from the Seal, you would be automatically transported to that world," Elizabeth shook her head "I can't interfere with the on goings of other worlds, so if we succeed and you are sent to this presence's home world, you'll be…how do say it? On your own,"
I frowned; things are just never simple, are they?
"…still, I'll go," I said "If what you said is true and I'll be transported to another…world, then I'll just have to get back, it's not hopeless, I know it,"Elizabeth stared at me in astonishment before smiling "I'm glad you haven't changed, Minato-kun,"
"I shall begin," She said, her voice was different from before. She held up the Universe Arcana, which started to glow brighter than I've ever seen it, she herself started glowing as she chanted "fehurtoros radenuwaln disgereohpeord heolhsig eltirbeorceh manlaguing etheldae gacaescy riorear!" I felt a sharp pain run across my body, like someone just sliced me up and was rubbing salt all over my wounds.
I didn't have time to register the voice, because a warm green light covered me in the second I looked up And everything went black
"My, what a surprise, never had their been a guest that had finished is ordeal to come back here, but off course, the future is full of mysteries,"
…That voice…I know that voice…
I opened my eyes slowly, because they feel like two ton weights fight now. I was in a blue limousine. In front of me was a man with a long nose and a Cheshire Cat grin.
"you shouldn't try moving, the Innocence has not yet perfected your new body, you need more time to get used to it," I looked at him with my half laden eyes "…Inno…cence…? …bo…dy…?" My head was spinning, my whole body ached. I could barely lift a finger, what's happening to me?
Through my tired ears, I could hear Igor "Right now, you are crossing the rift between two worlds, since you are our guest, we took it upon ourselves to escort you halfway," I was somehow able to let out a soft moan, which is harder than you think, since my jaws feel stiffer than rock "…where…?" I managed to ask. Igor chuckled "I wasn't expecting you to be able to move in such a condition, let alone speak; it just proves your strength in both body and mind. As for the destination, all I can tell you is that it is in the brink of a holy war,"
I groaned mentally, more fighting?
"Oh, but this way is different than any war that had happened in your world, a battle between the devil's demons and the God's angels, known there as Akuma and Exorcists," I closed my eyes, I don't have the strength to keep them up anymore. I could feel my senses dimming quickly…
The last thing I heard was Igor's chuckling before my senses went completely blank again.
…and I'm done! So, how do you like this re write? Still not mysterious enough in my opinion, but I still like it! And I hope you guys would like it to!
