Both Yosuke and Yukiko have been unsatisfied with their lives, and unknown to them their repressed selves finally decided that it was time to remedy that sorry state of stagnation. When a trapped Princess and a bored Hero meet, what happens to the world? ________- He was tired, maybe he was coming up with something? At least, that was what his mother would think if she saw him right now. The truth is that Hanamura Yosuke was bored of Inaba. Truth is, if he was really honest with himself, he was bored of everything, sick of himself even. Let it not be said that the redhead was honest with himself, though, and that was really the root of the problem he put so much energy into ignoring. Day in and day out, he put up the face of a class clown, but really he wanted nothing more than to hide and never come out of his room these days. School was a drag, work was a shore, and even his impressive collection of games, dvds and mp3s were no longer enough to distract him from the fact that he hated how dull his life had become out in the sticks. He had no real close friends, and the only time he could have any excitement these days was when he played his rapidly shrinking stash of old school role playing games. Saving princesses, slaying dragons... be a hero. That was what he wanted, but he had no hope of being so in this day and age. Certainly not as the son of a manager at Junes, at any rate. He wanted adventure and great romance, but it was too lame to say out loud. Dragging his squeaky bike to the garage was an absolute nightmare, and by the time he managed to make his way to his room and finally drop his schoolbag on the hardwood floor Yosuke was exhausted. Really, he should have gone to bed for a nap, but he was too run down by the utter bland day he had gone through to be reasonable. Slouching his way to his beanbag, he let himself fall into the comfortable seat and set out to start up his latest RPG in hope of lifting his mood a little. The trick seemed to work for a while, but barely an hour in saw the teen drowsing off just as he was about to set out to save the princess Lilial. Slumping unto himself in a soft snore, Yosuke dreamed... or so he thought. -~-~-~-~-~-~ Grinning widely, the boy looked up at the newly formed castle that had appeared near his usual haunt a few days ago. The place looked huge, and the shadow could swear he sometimes heard the pleas of a girl for someone to save her. Well, things had been dull lately, and Shadow Yosuke had been looking desperately for something fun to do. What better way to fight boredom than to save a (hopefully) fair damsel in distress? Laughing to himself, the shadow swung a set of sharp knives experimentally and set out towards the castle, yellow eyes shining with delight at the prospect of finally finding something to worthwhile to do... and hey, maybe he could even be a hero!
