They still haven't noticed. Not Dojima, Nanako…not even my own parents. I have already come to accept this from my parents...they can't even remember what gender I am. The male Yasogami High uniform I received was enough to prove that. Until somebody figures it out, I'm Yu Narukami, a male student from the big city attending Yasogami High for the next year.
—Description for Façade
Façade is a Gender FlipPersona 4 fanfiction written by author KlonoaDreams. The plot is very similar to that of the game, with one small twist: Yu Narukami is a girl.Yu Narukami is the unfortunate daughter of constantly absent, forgetful parents who, on registering her for Yasogami High School, accidentally mark her as a male instead of a female. Sick and tired of their constant mistakes, Yu decides not to correct this mistake and simply lives with it, hoping someone will notice the mistake.The fanfiction is ongoing and has semi-regular updates.Please help this page by contributing, as it Needs Wiki Magic Love.
Facade contains examples of:
Accidental Kiss: Happens between Yu and Yosuke the day before the camping trip.
Broken Bird: A combination of abandonment issues, a Heroic BSOD upon discovery of her parents' massive error, and sheer fatigue has left Yu more than a bit depressed and less than confident, even to the point of developing a drinking problemat 16. Probably the core reason why she can't work up the self-will to point out she's female.
Can't Hold His Liquor: While each of the party members, with the exception of Kanji, get to different levels of tipsy and/or drunk while in Rise's dungeon, Yosuke is the one who gets drunk the easiest. This comes as a bit of a surprise as Yu was originally thought to be this.
The Chikan: After nearly getting molested, Yu has an aversion to taking the train, especially when it's crowded, for this reason.
Distracted by the Sexy: Yosuke's obsession with nurses ends up biting him in the ass when Yu is required to dress up as one in order to enter Rise's dungeon. Yu is not amused.
Dude Magnet: Yu seems to have been this at her last high school.
Elegant Gothic Lolita: Yukiko wears a Gothic Lolita maid outfit as part of the requirement to enter Rise's dungeon. She would have appreciated the outfit, had she not been forced to wear lacy unmentionables.
Even the Guys Want Him: Ever since Yu took up a job at the Shiroku Pub as a dishwasher, she is this, to the point of annoyance as her job requires her to listen to drunk patrons, whom like to hit on her. Regardless of the fact that they still think she is male.
And as of chapter 37, Yu has received a gift because of this...in the form of a very feminine, yet expensive hair clip. Dojima is concerned.
Fear of Thunder: One of the things Chie is quite afraid of, right next to bugs.
No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: In chapter 22, Yu's encounter with a biker gang and their banchou turned into this when she refused to be a cooperative example. The only reason why Yu's injuries weren't as severe as they could have been was because of the work of her Personas and because Kanji had saved her.
Pint-Sized Powerhouse: At 5'3" and 105 lbs, Yu Narukami is this, with her ferocious headbutts and biting.
Porn Stash: As Yu found Yosuke's stash while drunk, Yosuke tries to do the same to Yu...only to find a volume of shoujo manga instead. Yosuke and Yu then end up bonding over porn right after. Then Yosuke ends up recalling this sometime after he finds out Yu is a girl. Hilarity Ensues as Yu is STILL completely neutral about it.
Qipao: Chie ends up being forced to wear one as the requirement for entering Rise's dungeon.
Rapunzel Hair: Much to everyone's surprise, Yu used to have mid-thigh length hair. Justified, as her reason for growing out her hair was because she couldn't afford to get it cut as she was living on an allowance. Yukiko also used to be this prior to her Traumatic Haircut.
Recursive Crossdressing: Happens in chapter 37, in which Yukiko convinces Yu to try on a summer dress before buying it for her. It gives us this little gem:
School Bullying Is Harmless: Averted. Yukiko was a victim of this while she was in middle school and both she and Chie were affected rather badly from the experience, due to the outcome, to the point that it became one of the reasons Chie's relationship with Yukiko became unhealthily domineering.
Secret Keeper: Nanako becomes the first person that Yu entrusts the secret of her gender to. This later goes on to extend to Kanji and Yosuke during the camping trip and then Yukiko and Chie during Rise's dungeon.
Serious Business: Meat is this to Yu, as well as anything involving sales on food.
To begin with, since their first encounter, Kanji has had a lot of it with Yu.
It's quite difficult to ignore the moments between Yosuke and Yu, especially now that Yu has explicitly told Yosuke she feels safe around him. Not to mention, the day before she even told him, the two had an Accidental Kiss.
Their switch to a First Name Basis had them awkwardly talking to each other about it.
