Joker had just pulled out a persona he hadn’t even seen as a shadow before and had used an ability with a long-ass name when he said it.
“You need proper punishment.” ‘What the fu-’you see that thought didn’t get to finish itself before Ryuji got smacked up the head by a physical attack.
A/N: After doing some writing under the cloak of darkness I’ve finally decided to post a fic I’ve been working on, and even drew something to accompany it. I have more chapters in the making and if you guys like this I might keep posting them here. I wrote this mainly because that one voice line stuck out to me and I thought it would too some of the other thieves (Ryuji) as well.
As cool as Akira was when he was Joker, sometimes he was too- nonchalant? Confident? He was too something. Not that he was too laid back when it came to their missions, no not that he just… says some things a little too casual, with too much of a hint of cockiness, for Ryuji’s own good. It wasn’t that Akira didn’t say bold and, at times, blunt things outside of the metaverse. It’s just that when he’s Joker, he says things in a whole different tone of voice and it was starting to mess with Ryuji’s head a bit, in a way he couldn’t and wouldn’t explain.
