Viewtiful Rekk (4:25:34 PM): ---------------------------------------------------------------------
Y Ruler of Time (4:28:05 PM): 'Why is it that I can't seem to keep things from falling apart, even when things go almost completely according to plan?'
Viewtiful Rekk (4:29:19 PM): "DAMMIT STOP RUNNING, I'M GONNA CATCH YOU EVENTUALLY!" Amado shouted between huffs as he frantically tried to pull his shirt on while running.
Y Ruler of Time (4:29:37 PM): Kazimir was running again, running away from capture and this time, possibly without hope of being able to eventually run back to his friends. He had to assume, for now, that he was alone.
Y Ruler of Time (4:29:56 PM): ...Except for his pursuer, who was annoying the crap out of him.
Viewtiful Rekk (4:30:52 PM): "Damn, he's fast..." Amado grumbled, then looked at their surroundings. They were near the Yellow dorm...that meant...he immediately pulled out his PDA and punched in a number.
kwikkidus (4:31:33 PM): He answers his PDA nigh-immediately. "Eon Flunky, who's this."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:31:47 PM): "It's the queen, who do ya think it is!?"
kwikkidus (4:32:14 PM): "Ahh, your majesty! What can I do for her grace this fine evening?" Sarcasm? Probably.
Viewtiful Rekk (4:33:30 PM): "Well, my fine Court Jackass, I'm chasin' down the leader of that Order thing, so if you could help, I'd really appreciate it!"
kwikkidus (4:34:22 PM): "Oh, right. Should I bring along reinforcements? Where are you headed, anyways? These are important things to know..." He starts heading out the door immediately, grabbing his duel disk on the way.
Viewtiful Rekk (4:35:06 PM): "We're near the Yellow dorm. Bring reinforcements or whatever, just get here, he's a lot faster than I thought!"
kwikkidus (4:35:29 PM): "Right, right... I'll be there..." He steps out and looks around for the party.
Viewtiful Rekk (4:35:58 PM): Amado immediately punches in a second number after hanging up.
Y Ruler of Time (4:36:02 PM): "I wouldn't have to run so fast if you'd stop chasing me!" Kazimir spins to throw a few needles back at Amado, his haste making the attack rather inaccurate.
Sinisquirrel (4:36:57 PM): "..." Mn? Sitting in the school's library, Lily feels her PDA vibrate. Click. "Sakuma."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:38:38 PM): "I WOULDN'T BE CHASING YOU IF YOU WEREN'T AN EVIL PIECE OF CRAP, Y'EVIL PIECE OF CRAP!" Amado shouts back as he dodges. "Oh, hey, hi!" He then says into the PDA. "Tsukayama, Amado Tsukayama!"
Sinisquirrel (4:39:30 PM): "... ..." Assuming for his sake that that first was not in reference to her. "Yes?"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:41:04 PM): "I'm chasin' down that Order of Holy Something guy, and he's pretty darn fast, so if it's not a big deal, could you possibly help me catch him or something?" Said in a far more even tone than with Eon.
Sinisquirrel (4:42:00 PM): This news had her standing up. "Where?"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:42:23 PM): "Near the Yellow dorm!"
Sinisquirrel (4:43:07 PM): "Ah." Click. Yes, Amado, that means "I'll be there."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:43:33 PM): "...Are you gonna stop running yet!?"
Y Ruler of Time (4:44:07 PM): "I could ask you the same thing!"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:44:26 PM): "Well, no!"
Y Ruler of Time (4:46:48 PM): "Then no!"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:47:02 PM): "Dammit, you suck!"
kwikkidus (4:47:27 PM): Seeing the chase at last, Eon decides to take action himself... running on after them while shoving his duel disk on his arm. "Oi! Kazimir... no offense or anything but I have a bounty and I can't collect til you're dealt with, ne?"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:48:03 PM): "...y'couldn't have done a jump-kick or something to surprise him or something!?"
Y Ruler of Time (4:48:19 PM): "..." Kazimir just keeps running for a few seconds before replying. "Since when has there been a bounty for my arrest?"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:52:19 PM): "Dadgummit. Flunky, gimme your disk!"
Sinisquirrel (4:52:24 PM): Lily appears: "Since it's your organization that's disrupted the school's learning processes!"
kwikkidus (4:53:06 PM): "Mmn. And this being the case, I have an interest in... catch." He tosses Amado the disk. "An interest in your capture."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:53:33 PM): Amado stops and throws the disk at Kazimir like....well, like a discus.
kwikkidus (4:53:55 PM): "...You could have just told me you were going to do that!"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:54:11 PM): "People could be doing a lot of things!"
Y Ruler of Time (4:54:16 PM): "Well I-" the disk smashes into Kazimir's legs and he drops to the ground like a brick.
kwikkidus (4:54:39 PM): "...I think I need another new disk, huh..." His eye twitches slightly. "Not again..."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:55:21 PM): Amado snorts. "If Kaiba didn't build them to withstand that, they wouldn't sell for as high as they do." He says as he walks towards the fallen Kazimir, picking up the Duel Disk as he walks.
Sinisquirrel (4:55:52 PM): "Well, then. What now?"
Y Ruler of Time (4:55:55 PM): Kazimir rolls over onto his back, and looks down at his legs. His right looks a bit...twisted.
Y Ruler of Time (4:56:28 PM): "Hm...well that's inconvenient." He reaches down and twists his foot, and something snaps as it pops into place.
kwikkidus (4:56:36 PM): "...Hand it over." he says, holding out a hand. "I kind of need it..."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:58:39 PM): "...that was...kinda sick..."
Y Ruler of Time (4:59:22 PM): Kazimir stands up, and his right leg immediately almost gives out before he catches himself.
Y Ruler of Time (4:59:49 PM): "...Looks like I can't do much running anymore. Good work, Mister Tsukayama."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:00:15 PM): "...Well, it was kinda the point..."
kwikkidus (5:00:43 PM): "Hey, hey. Don't forget whose duel disk it was, ne?" Eon snaps, grabbing it back from Amado. "Jeez, seriously. I thought you were going to duel him.”
Sinisquirrel (5:01:14 PM): "If Amado-san had used his own disk..." Cleaver, remind you. CLEAVER. To the legs.
Y Ruler of Time (5:01:56 PM): Kazimir chuckles. "Duel me? Are you serious?" He shakes his head. "I can't get away anymore. Bruce will definitely catch me, even with Ashley holding him off. There's no point in you dueling me."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:02:14 PM): "...Kazimir Farkas, right?"
Y Ruler of Time (5:02:27 PM): "That is correct, Mister Tsukayama."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:02:55 PM): "Then there is a point." He pulls up his Cleaver Disk and activates it.
Y Ruler of Time (5:03:34 PM): "And what purpose would that be?"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:04:00 PM): "First off, you're ranked 8th in the school."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:04:07 PM): "Secondly, there's something I want to ask you."
Sinisquirrel (5:05:01 PM): "..." If this is about ranking... Lily readies the palm to face.
Y Ruler of Time (5:05:14 PM): "..." Kazimir activates his Duel Disk, "I don't admire the more selfish half of that, but I have no objection to having a conversation while I wait for Bruce to arrive and take me in."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:06:08 PM): "Trust me, I ain't all too fond of kidnappin' and torturin' other students either."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:06:54 PM): His Disk activates as he slides it over his arm. "Let's go!"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:07:44 PM): Amado draws six.
Y Ruler of Time (5:08:39 PM): Kazimir draws five.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:09:11 PM): "One monster in defense and one card face down. End turn!"
Y Ruler of Time (5:10:38 PM): "I'll draw."
Y Ruler of Time (5:12:39 PM): "I set two cards facedown, and a monster in defense position."
Y Ruler of Time (5:12:42 PM): "End turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:12:53 PM): "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:13:32 PM): "Flip summon - Masked Dragon!" (1400/1100)
Viewtiful Rekk (5:13:48 PM): "And I'll summon a second Masked Dragon!" (1400/1100)
Viewtiful Rekk (5:14:28 PM): "And then the spell card Summon Storm!" He says, holding up the card. "This lets me pay 800 lifepoints to special summon 1 level four or lower WIND-attribute monster from my hand!" (7200)
Y Ruler of Time (5:15:56 PM): "In response to Summon Storm," Kazimir declares, "I activate my facedown card. Ojama Trio!"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:16:42 PM): Amado frowns as three exceedingly ugly little buggers shoot towards his field.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:16:47 PM): "Counter Trap - Dragon Gust!"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:17:14 PM): Masked Dragon flaps its wings, sending the Ojamas flying into the horizon, complete with *ding*
Y Ruler of Time (5:17:36 PM): "Hm...it appears the Ojamas have blasted off again."
Y Ruler of Time (5:17:42 PM): "Very well, continue."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:18:30 PM): A small tornado kicks up on Amado's field. "Come out - Stormwind Dragon!" A green dragon with two wings made of wind appears. (2000/0)
Viewtiful Rekk (5:18:42 PM): "Masked Dragon, attack the defense! Masked Burst!"
Y Ruler of Time (5:19:18 PM): The defender is revealed to be a rather large, gray-furred rodent clutching a skull. "Giant Rat defends (1400/1450)!"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:19:29 PM): "Tch..." (7150)
Viewtiful Rekk (5:19:43 PM): "Stormwind! Hyper Cutter!"
Y Ruler of Time (5:21:03 PM): As soon as the first Rat is destroyed, another appears in its place.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:21:54 PM): "..." Amado glances at his remaining dragon.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:22:16 PM): "...End turn."
Y Ruler of Time (5:22:50 PM): Kazimir glances at Stormwind Dragon. "That monster has an effect after it attacks, doesn't it?"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:23:05 PM): The dragon kneels down, its wings disappearing. "Yeah yeah..."
Y Ruler of Time (5:23:28 PM): Kazimir draws. "And that is where you make your first mistake, Mister Tsukayama."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:24:00 PM): Amado snorts. "So you can destroy Stormwind now. Big whoop, like that's never happened before."
Y Ruler of Time (5:24:50 PM): "I believe you will find things to be a little different this time around...Giant Rat, attack one of the Masked Dragons!"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:25:20 PM): "Rammin' your searcher into mine..." Amado grumbles as both are destroyed. He removes his deck.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:28:10 PM): "Armed Dragon LV3!" A small tan-and-orange dragon appears, squeaking loudly. (1200/900)
Y Ruler of Time (5:29:23 PM): Kazimir smirks. "Getting your Armed Dragons ready, I see. But I'm thinking a bit more short-term..." One of his Masked Choppers appears, swinging its twin cleavers wildly (100/100).
Viewtiful Rekk (5:29:58 PM): "...Th' hell?"
Y Ruler of Time (5:30:28 PM): "You never got to see my Masked Chopper's effect when I dueled Hayden, did you? Well, now you get to witness it up close and personal...Masked Chopper, destroy Stormwind Dragon!"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:31:09 PM): With no defense, the dragon is cleaved in two. "Gh..."
Y Ruler of Time (5:31:45 PM): "Masked Chopper's effect now activates," the monster keeps going and runs after Amado, "after destroying a monster in battle, he deals the opponent two thousand damage!"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:33:59 PM): "What?!" Amado is run through twice by the monster. "Ghhaaaaagh!" He says, taking a step back. "ugh...'splains the stats...." (5150)
Y Ruler of Time (5:34:36 PM): Two more cards appear on Kazimir's field. "One defender and one card facedown. End turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:34:44 PM): "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:36:42 PM): "During my standby phase, Armed Dragon LV3's effect activates!"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:38:47 PM): The Dragon glows and grows into a far bigger spiked gray-and-red dragon. (2400/1700)
Y Ruler of Time (5:39:54 PM): "Hm...I always thought Dragons were such an overly brutal strategy. No finesse at all, just pure destructive power. Then again, to some that's what makes them appealing..."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:40:05 PM): He's obviously got a trap waiting for me if I attack... Amado looks over his hand.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:40:49 PM): Amado lets out a snort. "Yeah, people said the same thing about black guys about a 100 years ago."
Y Ruler of Time (5:41:05 PM): "..."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:41:20 PM): "...what?"
Y Ruler of Time (5:41:28 PM): "Are you trying to make this about race all of a sudden?"
Sinisquirrel (5:41:36 PM): "..." Now, that palm to face came in handy.
Y Ruler of Time (5:41:51 PM): "Seriously, that was a horrible comeback."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:41:56 PM): "Well, people dump all over dragons just 'cause they're so 'brutal' and crap!"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:43:06 PM): "It might as well be racist! Except...they're technically a different species...but..."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:43:30 PM): "Whatever! Masked Dragon, attack that Chopper thingy!"
Y Ruler of Time (5:47:35 PM): "Activate trap card," Kazimir declares, "Spiritual Earth Art - Kurogane." A brown circle appears around Masked Chopper, and the monster vanishes.
Y Ruler of Time (5:47:53 PM): "I sacrifice Masked Chopper, and summon from my graveyard Giant Rat in defense!"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:00:49 PM): The Dragon stops and silently retreats to Amado's field. "Tch...Go, Armed Basher!"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:01:17 PM): The Armed Dragon rapidly rotates its arms, before ramming into the Rat.
Y Ruler of Time (10:01:40 PM): The Rat is, unsurprisingly, destroyed.
Y Ruler of Time (10:06:01 PM): In the Rat's place, another Masked Chopper appears (100/100). "Masked Chopper number two."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:08:05 PM): Amado lets out a snort.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:08:54 PM): "You must think I'm a real moron! Main phase 2!"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:09:19 PM): Amado holds up Typhoon Dragon (1400). "Armed Dragon LV5's effect activates!"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:10:07 PM): "Shrapnel Blast!" Spikes shoot from the dragon's body and rain down on to the Masked Chopper.
Y Ruler of Time (10:11:28 PM): Kazimir frowns as his key monster is destroyed.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:12:13 PM): "And then during my end phase!" The dragon roars and shoots up in height once more. "Armed Dragon advances to LV7!" (2800/1000)
Y Ruler of Time (10:13:54 PM): "Very well. Draw."
Y Ruler of Time (10:14:37 PM): "One card facedown, and a monster in defense mode. End turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:15:31 PM): "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:16:04 PM): "One card face down. Armed Dragon, attack his defense!"
Y Ruler of Time (10:17:52 PM): "Sangan is destroyed," Kazimir announces well before the facedown monster is revealed, and then destroyed.
Y Ruler of Time (10:18:06 PM): "I add from my deck to my hand Masked Beheader."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:18:17 PM): Masked Beheader...never heard of it...
Viewtiful Rekk (10:18:25 PM): "Masked Dragon! Attack the other defense!"
Y Ruler of Time (10:19:47 PM): Kazimir smirks as the monster is revealed to be some strange chihuahua/porcupine hybrid. "Thousand Needles blocks the attack (1100/1800)."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:20:24 PM): Masked Dragon is impaled on several of the needles and explodes. (4750)
Viewtiful Rekk (10:20:26 PM): "Tch..."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:21:00 PM): :You sure run some weird cards...."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:21:04 PM): "End turn!"
Y Ruler of Time (10:21:42 PM): "Draw."
Y Ruler of Time (10:22:29 PM): "Hm...one card facedown. Turn end."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:23:06 PM): "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:23:28 PM): "I discard Armed Dragon Ammunition - Shield Shot!"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:24:02 PM): A red and gray spiked shield appears on the dragon's arm. "When Shield Shot is discarded for an Armed Dragon's effect, its attack counts as equal to that Armed Dragon!"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:24:24 PM): The Armed Dragon flings the shield down at the Thousand Needles.
Y Ruler of Time (10:24:48 PM): Kazimir doesn't move as the monster is destroyed.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:25:08 PM): "Armed Dragon, direct attack! ARMED PUNISHER!"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:25:21 PM): The dragon creates a ball of light in its hands and flings it at Kazimir.
Y Ruler of Time (10:26:20 PM): "Trap card, open," Kazimir states, "Call of the Haunted. Revive once again, Giant Rat (1400/1450)." The rodent rises up out of the ground once more.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:27:08 PM): "I don't think so! Counter Trap - Dragon Gust!"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:28:35 PM): The dragon flaps its steel wings, shattering the trap card.
Y Ruler of Time (10:29:24 PM): Kazimir frowns as his trap card is countered. "Hm..."
Y Ruler of Time (10:32:04 PM): Unable to do anything else, he is hit head-on by the attack and knocked to the ground. (5200)
Viewtiful Rekk (10:32:25 PM): Amado grins. "End turn."
Y Ruler of Time (10:33:01 PM): Kazimir slowly gets to his feet, favoring his injured leg.
Y Ruler of Time (10:34:10 PM): He draws a card wordlessly.
Y Ruler of Time (10:34:50 PM): "Activate Reasoning," he declares, playing his newly-drawn card.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:35:10 PM): "...Level 4."
Y Ruler of Time (10:39:26 PM): Kazimir goes through five cards before reaching a monster. "Hm...well, not exactly the best for the job...but I'll summon Mask of Darkness (900/400) in attack mode."
Y Ruler of Time (10:41:09 PM): Another card appears face-up. "Riryoku."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:41:34 PM): "Eh?!"
Y Ruler of Time (10:42:11 PM): Waves of energy are pulled from the Armed Dragon into the Mask. "Half of your monster's attack and defense are transferred to mine."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:42:33 PM): "Oh geez, that's friggin' cheap!"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:42:55 PM): (1400)
Y Ruler of Time (10:43:02 PM): (2300)
Y Ruler of Time (10:43:11 PM): "Mask of Darkness attacks Armed Dragon LV7."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:43:28 PM): The weakened dragon is easily destroyed. (3650)
Viewtiful Rekk (10:43:30 PM): "Dangit..."
Y Ruler of Time (10:43:36 PM): "Turn end."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:43:44 PM): "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:44:02 PM): "Come out, Stormwind!"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:44:17 PM): Another of the green dragons appears and roars. (2000/0)
Viewtiful Rekk (10:44:21 PM): "Attack Mask of Darkness!"
Y Ruler of Time (10:44:46 PM): "Trap card, Gravity Bind, activate."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:45:12 PM): "Dangit...end turn."
Y Ruler of Time (10:45:35 PM): "Draw."
Y Ruler of Time (10:46:21 PM): "End turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:46:35 PM): "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:47:04 PM): "...End turn."
Y Ruler of Time (10:47:11 PM): "Draw."
Y Ruler of Time (10:49:18 PM): "...I place Mask of Darkness in defense mode. End turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:49:24 PM): "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:49:45 PM): "..Dangit, this is lame!"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:49:51 PM): "One card face down, end turn..."
Y Ruler of Time (10:50:01 PM): "Draw."
Sinisquirrel (10:50:21 PM): "..." Ah... it's that same cycle from before...
kwikkidus (10:52:06 PM): "...Hum... Lily, this could lead to trouble."
Y Ruler of Time (10:52:25 PM): "...One card facedown. End turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:52:44 PM): "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:53:18 PM): "...Set one monster. End turn."
Y Ruler of Time (10:53:44 PM): "Open facedown card. Mystical Space Typhoon to destroy your set card."
Sinisquirrel (10:54:07 PM): "Doesn't matter much, does it? There are three of us and one of him..."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:54:30 PM): Dimensional Prison appears and is destroyed.,
Y Ruler of Time (10:54:33 PM): "Chain facedown Emergency Provisions, sacrificing both Gravity Bind and Mystical Space Typhoon to increase my life points by 2000."
Y Ruler of Time (10:56:41 PM): All of Kazimir's cards vanish, and his body glows slightly. (7200)
Y Ruler of Time (10:56:44 PM): "Draw."
Y Ruler of Time (10:57:25 PM): "I summon the final Masked Chopper (100/100)," Kazimir declares.
kwikkidus (10:58:09 PM): "Though this is true, Eon isn't a very good duelist and Lily-san is a simple red as well, ne?"
Y Ruler of Time (10:58:54 PM): "I've grown tired of this," Kazimir states, cracking his nect as the Masked Chopper vanishes. "It's time to call an end to our little game, Mister Tsukayama."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:59:34 PM): "What're you gettin' at?!"
Y Ruler of Time (11:00:29 PM): "I'm through humoring your taste for glory, Mister Tsukayama. This isn't the job for a young one such as yourself."
Sinisquirrel (11:01:13 PM): "..." She hadn't meant via dueling, but even then, Mister Flunky's words seemed to have some sort of averse effect. Have a little more self-respect, would you?
Viewtiful Rekk (11:03:57 PM): "...'Humorin' my taste for glory'? 'Isn't a job for a young one such as myself'?"
kwikkidus (11:04:15 PM): "...I see... So Kazimir claims to have been toying. Playing around with Amado is dangerous though... He's... Odd, ne?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:04:21 PM): Amado glares up at Kaz, a deadly serious look on his face. "Bring out your ace card, Kazimir Farkas."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:04:37 PM): "We'll see who's humoring who."
Y Ruler of Time (11:04:55 PM): "If you say so, Mister Tsukayama..."
Sinisquirrel (11:05:38 PM): "Which 'him' are you referring to...?" In other words, 'they're both insane.'
Y Ruler of Time (11:05:56 PM): A figure appears, much akin to the Masked Chopper but quite different. It is taller, less chubby and more muscular, and over its armor it wears a black hood and cloak.
Y Ruler of Time (11:06:10 PM): In place of the cleavers is an oversized, double-headed axe.
Y Ruler of Time (11:06:27 PM): "Summon, Masked Beheader (700/900)
Y Ruler of Time (11:08:00 PM): "I equip Masked Beheader with Axe of Despair, increasing its attack power by 1000 (1700/900)."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:08:26 PM): "It's still 300 points weaker than Stormwind Dragon."
Y Ruler of Time (11:09:00 PM): Kazimir smirks at this declaration. "I switch Mask of Darkness back to attack mode."
Y Ruler of Time (11:10:43 PM): "Masked Beheader attacks Stormwind Dragon."
kwikkidus (11:11:02 PM): "...Looking at this, I think they both may well apply."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:11:05 PM): The Beheader rams into a gray and red spiked shield.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:11:30 PM): "Shield Shot's effect. I can remove it from play when an Armed Dragon's on my field or in my grave to negate one attack and end the battle phase."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:11:52 PM): "I was saving this for the next time you brought out one of those Choppers. Guess that was smart."
Y Ruler of Time (11:13:17 PM): "...You're a cautious person when you need to be, aren't you Mister Tsukayama?"
Y Ruler of Time (11:13:25 PM): "One card facedown. End turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:13:39 PM): "You say you're toying with me, then offer me compliments?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:13:41 PM): "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:15:18 PM): "During my standby phase, I activate the effect of the Stormwind in my grave!"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:15:38 PM): He fans out his deck. "By sending one WIND-attribute Dragon-type monster from my deck to my grave, I can add it to my hand!"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:16:53 PM): He holds up another Shield Shot, and puts it into his graveyard, before adding Stormwind back to his hand.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:18:06 PM): "I sacrifice my face down monster. Summon - Armed Dragon LV5!" (2400/1700)
Viewtiful Rekk (11:18:48 PM): "And then the spell card Level Up!" The Dragon roars as it glows and doubles in size. "Special Summon - Armed Dragon LV7!" (2800/1000)
Y Ruler of Time (11:20:19 PM): "This is getting a little...repetitive. Masked Chopper, Armed Dragon, Masked Chopper, Armed Dragon..."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:21:51 PM): "You think so?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:21:53 PM): "End turn."
Y Ruler of Time (11:22:59 PM): "No attacking? No use of your Dragon's effect? I must admit, I'm surprised at this display of yours."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:24:35 PM): "Enough of the banter, Farkas."
Y Ruler of Time (11:25:50 PM): "If you insist. I'm merely expressing bewilderment at your decision to be so conservative with such an aggressive strategy. I draw,"
Y Ruler of Time (11:26:42 PM): "Activate Jar of Avarice."
Y Ruler of Time (11:27:33 PM): "I shuffle two Masked Choppers, both Giant Rats, and Sangan into my deck to draw two cards."
Y Ruler of Time (11:30:30 PM): "Mask of Darkness moves to defense once again. Masked Beheader attacks Stormwind Dragon again."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:30:47 PM): Again, the Beheader crashes into the Shield Shot.
Y Ruler of Time (11:32:05 PM): "One card facedown, end turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:32:10 PM): "Draw."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:32:27 PM): "Mirage Dragon."
Y Ruler of Time (11:32:30 PM): "...Mister Tsukayama, could I ask you a question?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:32:38 PM): "...What?"
Y Ruler of Time (11:32:59 PM): "How much do you think you know about me?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:33:23 PM): "I know as much as I need to know."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:33:45 PM): "You and your pals kidnap and hurt students."
Y Ruler of Time (11:35:10 PM): "And I suppose you understand that, by that reasoning, you are guilty of multiple accounts of assault and battery."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:35:44 PM): "I wasn't finished."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:36:32 PM): "You wanted to take down Zandel, and the Kaiser seems to at least want to be civil with you, so that at least means that you're not some cliche supervillain or somethin'."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:36:48 PM): "That means you probably believe that what you're doin' is right somehow."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:37:23 PM): "So I'm gonna spare you any spiel about how I think what you're doing is wrong."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:37:31 PM): "In return, do the same for me."
Y Ruler of Time (11:38:24 PM): "...So this conflict cannot be resolved with me walking away unless you lie at my feet, can it?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:39:12 PM): "Yeah."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:39:16 PM): "But that's not happening."
kwikkidus (11:39:17 PM): ...I'd point out the obvious, but...
Y Ruler of Time (11:39:31 PM): "Then continue."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:39:35 PM): "Summon - Mirage Dragon!" A yellow serpentine dragon appears and lets out a loud hiss. (1600/600)
Viewtiful Rekk (11:40:08 PM): "And then the spell card - Summon Storm!"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:40:26 PM): (2850) "Come out - Stormwind!" (2000/0)
Sinisquirrel (11:40:44 PM): Lily's brow furrows... what was that Eon was thinking just then? She could feel it was something ironic...
Y Ruler of Time (11:41:17 PM): "Trap card activate," Kazimir states as soon as the dragon hits the field, "Fairy Box."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:41:31 PM): Amado frowns.
kwikkidus (11:42:36 PM): "Lily, I feel as though this entire duel might be coming down to a bloody coin flip."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:42:40 PM): "....Set one card face down."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:42:41 PM): "End turn."
Y Ruler of Time (11:43:28 PM): "Why the hell would it come down to a coin flip?" Kazimir looks at Eon with lowered eyebrows. "If Fairy Box hadn't succeeded, he still would not have finished me off this turn."
Sinisquirrel (11:43:35 PM): "... mmn..." With Farkas present, I wonder how literal that toss would be.
Y Ruler of Time (11:43:42 PM): "Draw."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:44:03 PM): "Nobody likes listening to you Flunky, so you might as well just shut your trap."
Y Ruler of Time (11:46:22 PM): (6700) "I pay for the cost of Fairy Box."
kwikkidus (11:48:38 PM): "You people are... harsh." He shrugs, before putting a hand to his forehead. "Oh well... Can't be helped, ne?"
Sinisquirrel (11:48:58 PM): "... mn."
Y Ruler of Time (11:49:53 PM): "Let's see what you've got ready for me, Mister Tsukayama...Masked Beheader attacks the same Stormwind Dragon a third time!"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:50:03 PM): "He's just in a bad mood. Don't mind him." Says the tea sipping dragon now standing right behind Eon. "Quite odd though. I've never seen him like this."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:50:26 PM): A hole opens in the air between the two and starts sucking Masked Beheader in.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:50:34 PM): "Trap Card - Dimensional Prison!"
Y Ruler of Time (11:52:15 PM): "...Disappointing," the Dimensional Prison shatters, "draw a card for Dark Bribe of Demon Palace."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:52:55 PM): Amado snorts. "Yeah, don't think so."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:53:04 PM): Mirage Dragon roars, placing Dark Bribe back face down.
Sinisquirrel (11:53:11 PM): "..." Lily glances in the space behind Eon. That's... interesting. Had the boy even noticed the spirit?
Viewtiful Rekk (11:54:17 PM): "Now I know what your face down card is."
Y Ruler of Time (11:54:18 PM): "...Alright," Masked Beheader is warped away.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:54:46 PM): "Let me tell you something, Farkas."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:54:57 PM): "If you believe in what you believe in that's fine."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:55:11 PM): "But if you look down on me, I don't care who you are!"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:55:14 PM): "I'll crush you!"
Y Ruler of Time (11:56:08 PM): "...You're as self-absorbed as Zandel, you pitiful little boy."
kwikkidus (11:56:09 PM): "...What are you looking at?" he says coolly, looking over at her out of the corner of his eye.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:56:26 PM): "Self-absorbed?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:57:20 PM): "At least Zandel got one thing right - he doesn't let people walk over him."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:57:23 PM): "And neither do I!"
Y Ruler of Time (11:58:16 PM): Kazimir flicks a rock at Amado. Not with enough force to really hurt him, just to smack him on the head.
Sinisquirrel (11:58:26 PM): "The dragon behind you," Lily replies bluntly. "He says that Amado-san is simply in a 'bad mood.'"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:58:46 PM): Amado's hit. He flinches and shoots a 'wtf' look at Kazimir, but doesn't otherwise react.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:59:17 PM): The dragon merely sips his tea.
Y Ruler of Time (12:00:29 AM): "Yes, wonderful. I can't carry out my goal of potentially helping millions, but two more people get to stand tall. And so the world is a better place. Ignorant boy..."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:02:36 AM): "..."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:03:47 AM): "End your turn."
Y Ruler of Time (12:04:22 AM): "One defender, one facedown card. End turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:04:30 AM): "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:05:36 AM): "Armed Dragon LV7's effect!" He slides Armed Dragon LV3 into his grave.
Y Ruler of Time (12:07:52 AM): Kazimir glances at Mask of Darkness as it is bombarded and destroyed by the dragon's effect.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:08:21 AM): "Stormwind, the defender!"
Y Ruler of Time (12:08:44 AM): Kazimir points at Fairy Box, which glows. "I call heads."
Y Ruler of Time (12:10:46 AM): "Giant Rat is revealed (1400/1450)."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:11:13 AM): (1400)
Viewtiful Rekk (12:11:19 AM): "...End turn."
Y Ruler of Time (12:12:39 AM): "Stormwind Dragon is placed in defense by its own effect, is it not?"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:12:52 AM): "...Yeah, it is."
Y Ruler of Time (12:13:14 AM): "Open trap card, Spiritual Earth Art - Kurogane."
Y Ruler of Time (12:13:57 AM): Giant Rat vanishes, and Masked Chopper appears in its place.
Y Ruler of Time (12:15:10 AM): "Draw."
Y Ruler of Time (12:16:49 AM): "So, are you going to walk away from this proud, Mister Tsukayama? Have I done you a favor by playing this game with you?"
kwikkidus (12:16:50 AM): "...An invisible dragon says Amado's in a bad mood. Well, that certainly changes everything." he says wryly.
Sinisquirrel (12:17:36 AM): "It could be worse, Eon-kun. It could be something related to Farkas."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:18:32 AM): "...." Amado says nothing.
kwikkidus (12:19:05 AM): "An invisible bondage-crazed clown with giant cleavers?"
Y Ruler of Time (12:20:38 AM): "Shall we finish our business here, then? It would be nice if we were finished when Bruce arrives."
Sinisquirrel (12:20:40 AM): "Exactly." Lily nods seriously.
kwikkidus (12:21:02 AM): "I see your point..." He nods as well. "I suppose an invisible dragon is preferable."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:21:27 AM): "Stop gloating and do it."
Y Ruler of Time (12:21:41 AM): "Very well.
Y Ruler of Time (12:22:00 AM): Masked Chopper leaps towards the defending Stormwind Dragon and prepares to gut it.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:23:42 AM): The dragon is cleaved in half and then Amado is run through twice by the monster's weapons.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:23:46 AM): (0000)
Y Ruler of Time (12:26:25 AM): Kazimir sighs and shuts his Duel Disk off, before promptly falling into a sitting position.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:26:44 AM): Amado drops to one knee and punches the ground. Dammit...!
kwikkidus (12:27:24 AM): "So then... Kazimir. That means you give up, doesn't it?" Eon asks, eying him suspiciously.
Y Ruler of Time (12:29:10 AM): Kazimir twists to look at Eon with a raised eyebrow. "At what point did you gather that?"
kwikkidus (12:32:58 AM): "Well, you sat down. That tends to mean a surrender."
Y Ruler of Time (12:33:29 AM): "...My leg is fractured, Mister Flunky, what do you expect me to do when I no longer have to stand?"
kwikkidus (12:36:25 AM): "So you're saying you... don't give up.”
Y Ruler of Time (12:37:13 AM): "That's the long and short of it."
kwikkidus (12:39:57 AM): "...Alright, I guess I have to duel next then..." He activates his duel disk... which sparks and pops before shorting out. Oh come on...
Sinisquirrel (12:39:58 AM): "Then, what do you plan to do, in this position?"
Y Ruler of Time (12:40:34 AM): "Well, let me break this down for you, Miss Sakuma."
Y Ruler of Time (12:40:48 AM): "I intend to sit here until my leg heals, or until I am captured."
Y Ruler of Time (12:41:01 AM): "At the moment, you three are the only ones in a position to accomplish the latter."
Y Ruler of Time (12:41:30 AM): "I can defeat Mister Tsukayama in a duel. I can defeat you. I can defeat Mister Flunky."
kwikkidus (12:42:02 AM): "...And I assume you think you could beat us using force.'
Y Ruler of Time (12:42:05 AM): "Therefore, your only option is to drag me by force to the authorities, or detain me here, which should be too long, until someone capable of doing so arrives."
kwikkidus (12:43:11 AM): "...Huh. Well then." He flips open his PDA, calling Ichirou. "I guess we call for backup now." Hindsight, I could have done this during the duel.
Y Ruler of Time (12:45:35 AM): "Now you're thinking logically," Kazimir adjusts his position to a more comfortable one, "don't feel bad, you did your part by preventing me from putting distance between myself and Bruce."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:45:36 AM): "Mmmmmyeeeeeesss?" Says the person on the other end of the PDA.
kwikkidus (12:46:56 AM): "Hey. Kazimir Farkas has an injured leg and he happens to be right near the Yellow Dorm."
kwikkidus (12:47:29 AM): "We're standing here... and I'm considering throwing Amado's duel disk at him. Just thought you may want to know."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:47:31 AM): "....Uncle Leo?"
Sinisquirrel (12:47:44 AM): "..." The patronizing attitude doesn't suit him. But then, how could he help it... despite his win, he's lost. He probably knew that before the duel...
kwikkidus (12:47:59 AM): "Eon Flunky, actually."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:48:10 AM): "Oh, hello Curtis."
Sinisquirrel (12:49:57 AM): Lily doesn't look twice at the name. What? She didn't really think that a name like "Eon" could be real... or at least suspected.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:51:08 AM): "At any rate, that's interesting....I'll be there momentarily."
kwikkidus (12:52:42 AM): "...Nrff." He hangs up the phone. "That idiot..."
Y Ruler of Time (12:55:08 AM): Kazimir suddenly chuckles. "To think....all my planning, all my hiding, and the instrument that catches me is something made available to every student at the academy..."
kwikkidus (12:56:11 AM): "Yeah, yeah. The irony kills me too. So... any ideas for what to do while we wait?"
Y Ruler of Time (12:56:54 AM): "Oh sure, let's all tell our life stories, why don't we?" Kazimir throws his hands up. He appears rather frustrated.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:57:03 AM): "I'm pretty sure I said somethin' about you shuttin' your trap there, Flunky!"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:57:10 AM): "Farkas. Tell me one thing."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:59:21 AM): "...Five nights ago. When I dueled Meso."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:59:26 AM): "...What happened to me at the end?"
Y Ruler of Time (1:00:02 AM): "Ah," he claps his hands together once, before bringing them back behind his head, "I knew that wasn't you."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:00:19 AM): Amado blinks. "...What do you mean?"
Y Ruler of Time (1:01:09 AM): "You were about to hold off on attacking Meso, I was sure of it. Violent a person you are, you aren't a killer, after all. A little like me, I suppose..."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:01:48 AM): "Oh god, please don't give me a "We're not so different, you and I." speech."
Y Ruler of Time (1:02:16 AM): "Please, you think I want to compare myself to an ignorant selfish hot-headed brat like you?"
kwikkidus (1:02:31 AM): "You just did..."
Y Ruler of Time (1:02:46 AM): "That's not the point. Something happened. Big gust of wind, and you attacked Meso relentlessly."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:02:53 AM): "Hey!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:02:59 AM): "I am not selfish!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:03:09 AM): "And I'm workin' on the hot-headed part!"
Y Ruler of Time (1:03:46 AM): "After that...well, you did try to kill us both."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:03:52 AM): "...What?"
Y Ruler of Time (1:04:44 AM): "My pressure-point attacks didn't work. For some reason, you were stronger, more resilient. You were going to use the power of the Darkness Game to take our lives. And then...you were back to normal."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:05:26 AM): "...Bull."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:05:41 AM): "I would never take anybody's life!"
Y Ruler of Time (1:06:13 AM): "No, of course not," Kazimir looks at Amado meaningfully, "you would remember if you did, wouldn't you?"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:08:22 AM): "If it wasn't me then who the hell was it!?"
Sinisquirrel (1:09:09 AM): "... 'hot-headed...'" Lily glances in a different direction.
Y Ruler of Time (1:09:21 AM): "Your guess would be better than mine, Mister Tsukayama. It certainly wasn't me who chose your actions. There's one important thing I've come to realize in all this..."
Y Ruler of Time (1:10:12 AM): "There's something bigger going on than a bunch of teenagers and my Order. And you, Amado Tsukayama, have a much greater part in it than I do."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:10:43 AM): "...what?"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:13:53 AM): -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
