Your Shadow Self
I'm not sure if this has been a topic before or not, but it's definitely something that I've had a curiosity about for a while.
Imagine if everyday people had shadow versions of themselves; sides to them that they don't want anyone to see.
Now, imagine yourself as being one of these people; if you were to have a shadow version of yourself like the ones shown in the Persona universe, what do you think it would be like? You can feel free to base your answers from any of the games; feel free to get as creative as you want with this^^
I believe that my shadow would portray itself as a loud and obnoxious attention-seeker, claiming to want someone to notice it to escape its own sense of fearfulness and anxiety. It would probably claim that protection from the real world is all it keeps friends for, that it can't fend for itself, despite the fact that these are merely just extreme thoughts. Just as Yukiko's, and Naoto's shadows were represented as someone entirely different from their real selves (a princess and a scientist), I feel like mine would dress and act like a kid, representing the fact that, even though I am an adult, I feel as though I act moreso like an immature child.
I have no doubt that this shadow would make snarky remarks and would probably laugh on a whim, as well.
Big shock, I took a Persona 4 approach on the shadow. But I dunno; I just love the thought of having to face yourself. Of course, my thoughts aren't as extreme as this, but analyzing myself and getting creative in the writing process is actually pretty fun for me^^ Â¯\_(ãƒ„)_/Â¯
