Fan Fic / Soul Survivor

Go To

Hamuko likes Bad Apple, she's the sister of the world's first murderer, and her COMP summons Personas. Tartarus and the Dark Hour won't know what hit them.

Soul Survior is a Persona 3 fan fic written by Lady Starwing from the point of view of Hamuko Tsukio, her rendition of the Female Protagonist. Her story does a wonderful job of combining elements from several Shin Megami Tensei games into one cohesive, complex plot.


This fan fic provides examples of:

  • The Cameo: Cameos from several characters from Devil Survivor appear throughout. Characters suggested to be from Touhou also make sporadic appearances.
  • Cold Open: The story starts with a brief vignette of Hamuko and her family right before the incident at the Moonlight Bridge.
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: The magic that everyone uses seems to take on a different color for the users personality.
  • Crossover: Of Persona 3, Devil Survivor, Devil Summoner: Raidou Kuzunoha, and Digital Devil Saga.
  • Light Is Not Good: The angels. They spy on Hamuko to keep Naoya in check. They do not hesitate to use force, either.
  • Meaningful Name:
    • Hamuko and Naoya's last name, Tsukiko, is spelled with the character for 'Moon'
    • Their cousin Hiro's full name is Hiro Hijiri, which is spelled with the characters for Generous Saint
    • Junpei's nickname for Hamuko is "Luna-tan".
  • Parasol of Pain: When not wielding her naginata or a similar weapon, she's using her trademark parasol that conceals blades within them.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Hamuko's hair is apparently down to her SHINS. And she somehow manages to tame it all into a ponytail/bun.
  • Sequence Breaking:
    • At least in comparison to the original game; not only is Hamuko's first Social Link outside of Fool Mitsuru, but Mitsuru actually approached her first instead of the other way around.
    • Advertisement:
    • There is also a full party of four from the word 'go' due to Shinjiro's presence.
  • Shoe Slap:
    • At one point, Hamuko throws a boot at Yukari.
    • She later does the same to Naoya.
    • Loki gets the book bag instead.
  • Shout-Out:
    • The chapter names are Touhou Songs.
    • Sailor Moon is discussed by Junpei on the first trip to Tartarus
    Junpei: "But think about it, Luna-tan, you're a natural fit! We're fighting evil by moonlight, you're "Tsukio", and you've even got the pink hair! If we're not blasting our way through the dungeon in no time with the power of love, I'll be very shocked."
  • Swiss Army Weapon: Hamuko's COMP. In addition to being the equivalent of an iPad, it also plays DS games and functions as her Evoker.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Akihiko, why would you bring an overpowered Shadow back to the dorm?!

How well does it match the trope?
