Minato Arisato- Burn My Dread by Kikiro783273 Minato Arisato- Burn My Dread by Kikiro783273
~Dreamless dorm ticking clock
I walk away from the soundless room
Windless night moonlight melts
My ghostly shadow to the lukewarm gloom

Nightly dance of bleeding swords
Reminds me that I still live

I will burn my dread
I once ran away from the god of fear
And he chained me to despair

Burn my dread
I'll break the chain
And run till I see the sunlight again

I'll lift my face and run to the sunlight

Voiceless town tapping feet
I clench my fists in pockets tight
Far in mist a tower awaits
Like a merciless tomb devouring moonlight

Clockwork maze and unknown
In frozen time a staircase stands
Shadows crawl on bloodstained floor
I rush straight ahead with a sword in hands

Could touch of my trembling gun
I close my eyes to hear you breathe

I will burn my dread
This time I'll grapple down that god of fear
And throw him into hell's fire

Burn my dread
I'll shrug the pain
And run till I see the sunlight again

Oh I will run burning all regret and dread
And I will face the sun with the pride of the living~


^Lyrics that I spent a long time searching for.
Once I found them (and wrote them down in a notebook for future enjoyment) I realized that I wanted to draw something that related to the lyrics, and of course it had to star Minato-kun :D Please enjoy <3

Drawn by hand with a 0.7mm mechanical pencil and a Prismacolor lightfast blender

<3 All of the music used in the Persona series is excellent. I really like some songs used in Persona 4 and Persona 2 :3 I love how they can fit so well with the story.

This was originally supposed to be for Memories of You, but it seemed to fit Burn My Dread better ^^~ Memories of You is my next project... I'm thinking of doing one with both Minato and Minako. And :O OH! Let me know what it looks like!!! I'd love to see it! <3

XD I LOVE SAYING THAT!!! It's even better when you're outside walking with your friend and this happens:

...What time is it?

11:58. Why?

DX WHAT!? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! IS IT A FULL MOON!? I CAN'T SEE THE MOON! OH GOD, OH GOD WE ARE SO DEAD! I DON'T HAVE ANY WEAPONS OR ANYTHING... oh man, oh man, oh man DX It's cool.. it's cool.. I'll be like Aki and punch them, and you can be like Chie and kick! We'll be okay! Yeah!

.....I'm not giving you another pepsi for a LONG time.

aw.....just because i like pepsi.... well yeah not the same with my friend since he always leaves after 21:00 but oh well we stayed on the streets until those times and even tried to see the midnight channel....(people may start to call it mayonaka tv) but oh well if i didn't transform into a coffin i would be the fusion of those two or maybe minato since he uses swords like swords....

I can't deny... I've stayed up with friends and tried to use the Midnight Channel XD. Did it happen? No. Do we still believe. ...Nyeah... Do we still try? We shall await the next rainy night...
