Question: Write a POV transformation story of a human reader turning into Ragna the Bloodedge from BlazBlue game series, complete with reality change (the real world becoming the world of BlazBlue), gender change (if the reader is a female before the transformation), instant clothes change, rapid age change (becoming somewhere around 18 - 25 years old), height progression (becoming 185 centimeters (6.1 feet tall)), and mind/mental change (with the reader's personality and memories quickly being completely replaced with Ragna's personality and memories, despite the reader's best efforts on fighting off the mental changes, making the reader completely forget his previous self and only remember being a protagonist named Ragna, also known as the Grim Reaper (死神 Shinigami, God of Death), Man of the Blue (蒼の男 Ao no Otoko), and Centralfiction (神の観る夢セントラルフィクション Sentorarufikushon, Dream Seen by God)). For Ragna's appearance (after the reader turned into him), he is a young adult with white spiky hair and heterochromia: his left eye being green and his right being red, a side effect from assimilating the Blue Grimoire into his body. His clothing consists of a hybrid of modern, futuristic and old features. He wears a vibrant red sleeved jacket with two long thin tails hanging from the back. Under it is a black shirt with three red belts and also several belts covering his right arm. He wears a pair of black gloves with a red shell on the backs of the hands. His right arm is a black mechanical prosthetic made of the Blue Grimoire, after having lost his original arm when he was younger. The shell opens up to reveal the grimoire whenever he utilizes it. He wears a black hakama and steel-toed red boots. He also has a small black birthmark on the center of his chest. Ragna has a bright green stud earring on his left ear, not on the lobe of the ear but further up. For Ragna's personality, Ragna is sardonic, rude, and abrasive to anyone he comes across. He is also quick to anger, stubborn, and never misses a chance to use as much vulgar language as possible. In this regard, Ragna is similar to the stereotypical anime delinquent. This is caused mainly by Yūki Terumi practically destroying Ragna’s life, which has created a mass of hatred in him; stronger than that of any other individual. Ragna often becomes infuriated at first sight of Yūki Terumi, which he and/or Hazama often takes advantage of through taunting him. However, even in cases where he cannot win or is on the brink of death, Ragna possesses an undying will and persistence, refusing to give up even when he is clearly out matched, something many characters either hate or admire. Beneath his gruff exterior, however, Ragna does possess a softer, more compassionate side. He chooses to keep up his public front because of the path he chose – that of revenge, as well as accepting the fact that he’s still someone who’s committed crimes such as murder. He does genuinely care for certain people, such as Taokaka, Rachel, Noel, Jūbei and, to an extent, his brother, Jin. Ragna seems to disdain killing, refusing to kill Terumi after he defeated him in the end of Continuum Shift. Ragna spared Arakune’s life due to Litchi’s pleas, and in his Arcade Mode, he directly references his promise to Litchi to let him live after he defeats him. In the end of Chronophantasma, Ragna saved Nu-13 instead of killing her and he told Hakumen to not kill her. Also, despite Jin’s role in the destruction of his life, still cares for him as a brother. He also expressed anguish when Nu sacrificed her life to protect him, despite the past animosity he harbored for her and later declares he will “save” her due to prior events that shifted his beliefs. This side of his personality becomes more apparent as the story progresses, though he still keeps a rough exterior around others that don’t know about his soft side. Later on after the events of Chronophantasma, Ragna goes through more personal development which changes his opinions about the reasons he fights. He starts to rely on his own strength instead of the Blue Grimoire, as its power is to “steal” instead of “protect” as he finally understands the notion that the power from it was never truly his to activate so freely without fully realizing what it is. He declares that he will no longer fight to destroy and for revenge, and instead, decides to fight in order to protect his loved ones in spite of what he's lost in his life. This as aforementioned extends to Nu where he declares he’ll save her instead of destroying her. Furthermore, he then by proxy becomes more aware of how the world's possibilities and timelines revolve around himself within Centralfiction, as well as his own connection to the Master Unit. Thus, Ragna resolves to fight for the sake of migrating people's dreams and possibilities into a brand new world, and despite trying to take on the task alone, he learns to accept help from others in achieving this goal. In terms of comic relief, Ragna is often the straight-man of several situations that he himself cannot comprehend, mainly in several gag scenarios at his expense. For Ragna's powers, he is an extremely powerful individual, having been trained in combat, culinary skills and Magic Formula by Jūbei, wielding a Blue Grimoire and a rather unusual large sword called Aramasa, he is able to easily take down entire squads of the Control Organization by himself. Much of his fighting style involves somewhat crude-yet-controlled swings and strikes of brute force and simplistic martial form, ranging from wide sword swings to basic roundhouse-and-axe-kicks which implies a self-taught-yet-standard style. Much of his involves him getting into close range and trying to take his hits as far as possible as soon as he gains an offensive edge, which is reflected in gameplay by having a variety of hit confirms that lead into combos of rather long length that result in mid-to-high damage. Being the wielder of a Blue Grimoire, Ragna is able to manipulate darkness in the form of the various body parts of the Black Beast through his Drive, Soul Eater (ソウルイーター Souru Ītā), which also absorbs the opponent’s life force to replenish his own. By utilizing an ability called Blood Cain (ブラッドカイン Buraddo Kain), Ragna is able to use his Blue Grimoire to greatly enhance his physical abilities and strengthens his Drive, although it wears down his own life force during its duration even to the point of the Grimoire being able to nearly corrupt his entire person. Ragna is also capable of using a concealment Magic Formula to help hide him from both man and beast. During BlazBlue: Continuum Shift, Nu-13 (then in the body of Lambda-11), sacrificed herself to save Ragna from Hazama’s onslaught and transferred her Idea Engine into his Blue Grimoire, allowing Ragna to access the true Blue and preventing Hazama from suppressing it again. In BlazBlue: Chronophantasma, the combination of Ragna’s “Blood Cain” and the Idea Engine becomes his Overdrive, called Blood Cain Idea (ブラッドカインイデア Buraddo Kain Idea), which puts him in the “Blood Cain” state but without draining his health, and limits the eroding powers of the Grimoire unless Ragna himself decides to remove the limiter as a last resort (though his own anger can be another factor in causing his Grimoire to corrupt if left unchecked). However, a majority of events in the game involve him taking major beatings to the point of having difficulty recovering from them, which also ties into him having one of the lowest health stats in of the cast. He also has shown weakness in often over-relying on his Blue Grimoire during a majority of battles, often mixing in with his aforementioned offensive battle strategy in order to add as much stolen-life possible to his momentum. Tying into this was also Ragna often in situations where he is unable to fight at full power in major events during the storylines of the older games (e.g. being injured beforehand, having his Grimoire disabled, and so forth). During the events of BlazBlue: Chronophantasma, Ragna’s right arm and eye become paralyzed due to Celica Ayatsuki Mercury’s power, which made him become very weak compared to his normal self. However, this enabled him to learn how to effectively fight without relying on the Blue Grimoire, and truly understanding that the power of the BlazBlue wasn't merely his own to throw around nonchalantly. The wad of ordeals made him focus much more on his physical strength enough to defeat Nu-13 without fully activating the Blue Grimoire and without trying to kill her; something he failed to do before. During the events of Centralfiction upon regaining his memories, Ragna is much more resolved to try to formulate plans and displaying more awareness than before about his situation outside of combat and during a battle; one example of this is while only regaining a decent portion of his memories (not yet all of them), he was able to directly combat Azrael effectively at one point with only the bare minimum of his darkness-based powers and the rest of his own strength. In Centralfiction, Ragna learns to also make use of Soul Eater to be able to absorb other non-corporeal aspects of a person such as their dreams, attempting to steal said dreams/possibilities of the playable cast to properly migrate them to the new world. The more he does it however, the more strain it puts on himself (initially indicated by his right arm feeling heavier as time goes on). Via Kokonoe's analysis, he was using the Idea Engine to try and hold back the Grimoire's negative effects, though Ragna according to her was still under the threat of imploding if the amount of dreams he's absorbed exceeds the size of his vessel. The story would be that the reader has found a huge sword (belonging to Ragna) in or around his apartment room or suburban home, and as the reader hold onto the keyboard, the blinding light engulfed the reader, causing the whole transformation to occur. After the physical transformation, the reader tries his best on fighting off the new memories and personality (such as calling for his friends/family and/or shaking his head in a vain attempt to loose those new memories/personality), but to no avail as he begins to forget his mundane life and remember his new life as Ragna. After the mental changes, Ragna would be annoyed about the reader (before he became Ragna himself) being an idiot, before he (Ragna) smiles in satisfaction that he was brought back from the dead (he remembered how he died: he knew that he originally perished due to overusing the Azure Grimoire, with the right side of his body had become corrupted, leaving even half his face covered in black with bright red veins; however, when he got resurrected by having the reader transformed into Ragna himself, he is back to his pre-corrupted state). Near the end of the story (and long after the transformation ended), Ragna would briefly remember/thought of his previous life as a mundane person, but he soon forgets about it as he knows that he has always been Ragna and he knows that his mundane life as a mundane person was all just a dream, not reality, and Ragna is content to know that his life as Ragna is the only true life. There should also be quotes from the characters in this story so we know what they're saying and what they're thinking. Also, it is a POV reader story, so it should not be in an author's point of view (my, I, mine, etc), and it should be from the point of view of the reader (you, your, etc).

You sit in your apartment, a modest suburban home that's grown a bit cluttered from your inability to fully organize. Scanning the living room, your eyes land on a curious object—a large sword that looks impossibly real. It's peculiar, almost out of place, as if plucked straight from the virtual world of your favorite fighting game series, BlazBlue. Intrigued, you approach it carefully, your hand extending toward the hilt. As your fingers graze the cold steel, a powerful tremor courses through your body, forcing you to clutch onto the sword for balance. A blinding light engulfs you, rendering everything else meaningless. Noise and chaos swirl around you, your skin prickling as if lightning were coursing through your veins. You feel your muscles expanding and contracting, sinew and bones reshaping with a ferocity that leaves you breathless. You struggle to maintain some semblance of composure, but you can’t deny the unmistakable feeling of morphing—becoming someone else entirely. When the light finally subsides, you blink, adjusting your vision to the altered reality around you. The familiar surroundings of your apartment have been replaced by the dystopian landscape of Kagutsuchi. You realize you're not in your living room anymore; instead, you're standing on a grimy street corner under a sky perpetually cast in twilight. Your hands—no longer your hands—grasp at the heavy red trench coat now adorning your body. Vibrant, yet tattered around the edges, it's unmistakably the garb of Ragna the Bloodedge. A side glance reveals the mechanical prosthetic arm, its darker-than-night hue pulsating faintly with latent power. You reach up to touch your face, fingers tracing over a green and a red eye—heterochromia—a reminder of the Blue Grimoire embedded within you. “What the hell just happened?” you mutter, your voice deeper, rougher. Panic sets in as you desperately try to recall your own life, your own name. But the pulsating in your arm intensifies, sending shockwaves of Ragna's memories through your mind. You try to resist, focusing on your family and friends, but their faces are becoming blurry, indistinct. “Damn it!” You clutch at your head, shaking it violently, willing away the encroaching thoughts. “No! This...this isn't me!” But as each second ticks by, Ragna's memories merge and dominate. The bitterness of Yūki Terumi's betrayal, the fury of battling against the NOL, the raw grief for his lost sister, Saya—every emotion blazes through you. You can feel your own personality splintering and cracking under the weight of Ragna's. Your body acts on instinct, thrumming with raw power and muscle memory. You seize the notable sword, Aramasa, hefting it with ease. It feels natural, like an extension of yourself—you mean, an extension of Ragna. You're Ragna. “No,” you whisper, but it's already too late. The despair and desperation dissolve, replaced by a sardonic tilt to your lips. “Of course. Couldn't have left me alone, could you, Terumi?” The voice, Ragna’s voice, echoes in your mind, and you taste the venom laced within it, hatred simmering just below the surface. You pause for a moment, reflecting on the bizarre distortion of time and event. You remember—or think you do—the final moments of your former self. Overusing the Azure Grimoire, being consumed by its power. It makes your head spin, but you find peace in the fact that you're back, and more importantly, in your prime. A reflection from a nearby puddle shows you an image that would frighten anyone else, but it brings you a strange comfort. Armada resting up your back, jagged white hair falling into mismatched eyes, and the unmistakable jacket signaling that the Grim Reaper is back in town. “Pity for that idiot, whoever they were,” you mutter, almost as if addressing the void. Then you catch yourself. For a fleeting second, the image of a mundane life—study sessions, friendly gatherings, loved ones—flashes through your mind. But it feels distant, like a mere illusion. Shaking your head, you dispel it. “Just a dream,” you say with a confident smirk, looking ahead into the uncertain future. “Not reality.” Voices echo in your memory, voices from battles fought and journeys shared. "Ragna, don't you dare give up!" Noel's hopeful cries, Jin’s competitive taunts, and even Rachel’s biting sarcasm—all stir within you. You're Ragna the Bloodedge, after all. The world may still be a mess of entangled destinies and timelines, but you’ve got scores to settle and lives to protect. “Well, it’s about time I got to work,” you mutter, grip tightening around Aramasa, a sense of satisfaction spreading through your veins. Your life as the Grim Reaper begins anew, and there's no looking back.

Staring through the screen in your room, your eyes danced over the jagged virtual lines, neon colors, and mystic glow of Ragna. A gaping void of desire consumed you — oh, how it would feel to step into the shoes of the formidable Ragna the Bloodedge. You wished to feel the surge of his power, to live in the world he dominated, to walk his path. Little did you know, the line between imagination and reality was about to blur. Staggering upon a peculiar artifact during a routine tidy of your apartment — a huge, intimidating sword, you marveled at its grandeur. You touched the hilt gingerly. An electrifying tingle shot up your arm, and a sudden wave of dizziness consumed you. To your disbelief, a blinding light engulfed you immediately thereafter, and the transition began, your very being transforming both physically and mentally. In the aftermath of the flash, the change was immediate. Looking down at your hands, you saw strong, masculine fingers, surprisingly agile despite their roughness. Your body now towered at an impressive 185 centimeters, with a mechanical prosthetic arm. An odd sensation of air brushing against the tip of your ear alerted you to a green stud earring lodged higher up. Staring at your reflection in the mirror, a gasp escaped your lips. Your once mundane appearance had been replaced by white spiky hair and heterochromic eyes — one green, the other an eerie red. Observing your outfit, you donned a vibrant red sleeved jacket, black shirt adorned with red belts, black hakama, and steel-toed red boots. The physical changes were inexplicably mind-boggling, but they paled in comparison to the alterations of the mind. You tried to retain memories of your former self, to cling onto your past. As you called out for your friends, your family, the names and faces started to blur, replaced with new faces and new memories. Suddenly, a horde of new memories swarmed your mind, a violent tug of war ensued as you strived to keep your old self but to no avail. "Bloody hell, stop fighting it!" You growled, realizing your speech now mirrored Ragna's crude-mannered dialect. You shook your head in futile resistance. But the grim reality dawned on you; you were becoming Ragna, in mind and spirit. Grudgingly, you succumbed to your new reality, in your heart a slow acceptance that you were Ragna the Bloodedge. It was strange, carrying his personality, his memories. They consumed you entirely, leaving no trace of your former self. A grim acceptance descended upon you as your former life seemed like a dream that grew fainter and fainter. Indifference washed over you as you dismissed your prior existence. You were Ragna the Bloodedge, the protagonist, the Grim Reaper. You had your goals, your grudges, your power, you were Ragna — and that was your reality now.
