Viewtiful Rekk (3:18:55 PM): ------------------------------------------------------------
Viewtiful Rekk (3:19:55 PM): Ichirou stands outside the locked door of his room, calmly reading over a file before he heads inside. He shoots a glance over at the student assisting him.
Viewtiful Rekk (3:20:19 PM): "Are you sure that you wish to do this, Mr. Gorrenos? You really should go the infirmary and have yourself looked at."
Polk Kitsune (3:21:47 PM): Bruce gave a small scoff. "I will be fine. Besides, there are things to investigate here. Maybe even important for all of us."
Polk Kitsune (3:22:21 PM): "If it will put your mind at ease, I will see miss Zaniah after this."
Viewtiful Rekk (3:22:26 PM): "If you're sure..." He opens up the door. "After you."
Polk Kitsune (3:25:06 PM): With a nod, he entered. "Of course. Thank you." He reached into his pocket, and pulled out a small recording device.
Polk Kitsune (3:29:18 PM): "Don't want to lose a detail..."
Viewtiful Rekk (3:30:39 PM): Ichirou heads in after Bruce and closes the door behind him. "...so...Mr. Hayden Zandel, and Miss Ashley Engarde."
Viewtiful Rekk (3:31:10 PM): "...." Ashley says nothing, and merely looks at the ground.
TheGymRat38 (3:32:31 PM): Hayden merely glances up at the two, and then returns to reading a small book.
Polk Kitsune (3:33:36 PM)
: Bruce stared at both silently for a moment, seeing the two's different reactions.
Viewtiful Rekk (3:33:58 PM): Ichirou calmly takes the book away from him and tosses it over his shoulder. "You'll have plenty of time for reading later, Mr. Zandel. Now, we need to speak."
TheGymRat38 (3:35:02 PM): "Is it about the assault charge I'll be leveling on Brucey-boy?"
Polk Kitsune (3:35:43 PM)
: Bruce gave a snerk.
Viewtiful Rekk (3:35:57 PM): "It is not."
Viewtiful Rekk (3:36:53 PM): "It's about your theft of Alexander Hawkeye's Duel Disk, your dueling him with Shock Collars, your association with the Order of HOly Suffering..."
Viewtiful Rekk (3:37:07 PM): Ichirou rests the file on his desk. "It just goes on like that."
TheGymRat38 (3:37:47 PM): "I don't recall any of that."
Viewtiful Rekk (3:38:14 PM)
: "Ah, that's a terrible shame."
Viewtiful Rekk (3:38:48 PM): Ichirou glances over at Bruce. "It seems he's determined to be difficult with us."
Polk Kitsune (3:39:03 PM): He gave a nod. "You expected any less?"
Viewtiful Rekk (3:39:48 PM): "Miss Engarde...do you recall any of this?"
Viewtiful Rekk (3:40:31 PM): Ashley continues staring downward. "...I wish to see Kazimir before I say anything..." She mutters.
Polk Kitsune (3:41:24 PM): "..." Bruce gave a low sigh.
Viewtiful Rekk (3:42:23 PM): "I see....Mister Gorrenos, please take Miss Engarde to see Mr. Farkas." He says, giving Bruce a look.
Polk Kitsune (3:44:48 PM): Bruce gave a low nod. "Understood." He extended one hand toward Ashley. "Will you follow me?"
Viewtiful Rekk (3:45:06 PM): "...." Ashley nods and stands up, taking his hand.
Polk Kitsune (3:48:18 PM): He started to lead her out of the room, and began to walk down the corridors, leaving Ichirou and Hayden alone.
Viewtiful Rekk (3:48:52 PM): "..." Ichirou takes the chair she was sitting in and sits down.
Viewtiful Rekk (3:49:04 PM): "Now, Mr. Zandel..."
Viewtiful Rekk (3:49:55 PM): "You're a smart man. I know that, you know that. I'm not going to try and waste both of our time here by assuming that you're an idiot..."
Viewtiful Rekk (3:50:02 PM): "So why don't you pay me that same respect?"
TheGymRat38 (3:50:30 PM): "I don't remember ever assuming you were an idiot."
TheGymRat38 (3:50:46 PM)
: "So why don't you show me the respect I'm due and not put words in my mouth, okay?"
Viewtiful Rekk (3:52:59 PM)
: Ichirou smirks a bit. "I have one student willing to say he saw you conspire to steal Mr. Hawkeye's Duel Disk and dueled him with shock collars, Mr. Hawkeye himself easily being able to corroborate the latter..."
Viewtiful Rekk (3:53:45 PM): "And how long do you think it'll take Mr. Farkas, Miss Engarde and the Maeromune twins to flip on you in an attempt to lessen their own punishment."
Viewtiful Rekk (3:54:26 PM): "I'm doing you a favor by coming to you first. I suggest you cease these games and tell me the truth."
TheGymRat38 (3:54:41 PM): "Funny, first you say I stole Lexi's duel disk and now you claim I conspired to do so. Maybe you should get your claims straight before insulting me and accusing me of crimes you have no proof of."
Viewtiful Rekk (3:57:00 PM)
: "Either way, you're still directly responsible for Mr. Hawkeye's disk being separated from his person. Let's not split hairs."
Polk Kitsune (3:57:16 PM): Bruce led the girl through the corridors. His mind tried to calculate the best angle to approach this one. "If you don't mind me though, miss Engarde, hopefully, you won't mind a few questions?"
Viewtiful Rekk (3:57:47 PM): "...and you'll take me to see Kazimir afterwards?"
TheGymRat38 (4:01:19 PM): Hayden rolled his eyes at Ichirou. "You know, you're a teacher at a school. You have absolutely no legal authority. Not to mention I don't see a lawyer here."
TheGymRat38 (4:01:38 PM)
: "If I'm being accused of crimes, I won't speak any further without a lawyer of my choice present."
Polk Kitsune (4:02:14 PM)
: His eyes closed. "... I will give you news of Kazimir, yes..."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:02:59 PM): "Would you believe me if I said I have a license from the Bar Association of Japan?"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:03:17 PM): "...News of him?"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:03:30 PM): "What happened to him?" She asks, her voice shaking slightly.
TheGymRat38 (4:03:38 PM): "Would you believe me if I said I don't care? I have the right to a lawyer, one of my choosing."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:04:11 PM)
: Ichirou chuckles. "Like I said, you're a smart boy."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:05:25 PM): He sits back and crosses his legs. The lights above him dim. "Unfortunately, I have no such license, thus, there is little I can do besides bring you up on disciplinary charges."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:07:34 PM): "At best I could probably get you expelled. But considering how well off your family is with the Board of Directors...it's doubtful I could even get that.
Polk Kitsune (4:07:37 PM): Bruce stayed silent for a moment, then gave a sigh. "I'm afraid I can't hide it from you, I suppose." He said, looking down.
TheGymRat38 (4:08:12 PM): Hayden just shrugs at Ichirou, but a small smile is on his face.
Polk Kitsune (4:08:28 PM)
: "I'm afraid he was caught up in a shadow game... He fought fearlessly, but..."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:08:51 PM): "Honestly, Mr. Zandel, your indiscretions up 'til now have not bothered me all too much. But you've done some things that I cannot, in good conscience, allow you to get away with."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:09:40 PM): "So if you don't mind...I'm going to subvert the rules a bit." Suddenly, a curtain of darkness shoots around the two, tightly enclosing itself and leaving the entire room shrouded in darkness.
TheGymRat38 (4:10:09 PM): "What the fuck are you doing?"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:11:17 PM): "I think you know very well what this is, Mister Zandel." Ichirou says, a serene smile on his face.
Viewtiful Rekk (4:11:25 PM): "Now...do you want to reconsider your stance a bit?"
TheGymRat38 (4:12:19 PM): Hayden gets up out of the chair and stands, the chair fading into the darkness. "Are you really challenging a student to a Darkness Game?"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:12:35 PM)
: "That depends."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:12:55 PM): "Are you going to necessitate that I do so?"
TheGymRat38 (4:14:20 PM): "What the hell would necessitate that you warped teacher?!"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:14:50 PM)
: Ichirou removes his deck from the box on his side.
Viewtiful Rekk (4:15:22 PM): "The shock collars, I could accept. Even the Holy Order of Suffering. Things like that are easily dealt with."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:15:45 PM): "You unsealed something far beyond what your pathetic comprehension can understand, Hayden Zandel."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:15:55 PM): "Split your ties with it now."
TheGymRat38 (4:16:17 PM): "What the fuck are you talking about?"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:17:31 PM): "The Detestable Knight."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:17:42 PM): "The Dragon of Sorrow."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:17:47 PM): "The Ultimate Nightmare."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:17:55 PM): "I refer to your Duel Spirit partner, Yubel."
TheGymRat38 (4:17:59 PM): Hayden stares at Ichirou, and then bursts out laughing.
TheGymRat38 (4:19:03 PM): "Why the hell would I give up a Duel Spirit so soon after getting it? Aren't they things to be prized?"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:19:55 PM): "A bond with a Duel Spirit is something to be prized, but Yubel was sealed for a reason."
TheGymRat38 (4:20:48 PM): Hayden sneers and his eyes change colors to match Yubel's. "Yes, she told me. She was sealed out of jealousy for her power, because people couldn't stand the love she brought."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:21:18 PM)
: "Yubel does not bring love. She brings only suffering."
TheGymRat38 (4:21:18 PM): Yubel appears behind him, a sadistic smirk on her face.
TheGymRat38 (4:21:34 PM)
: "Love is suffering, that is the truth."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:21:40 PM): Ibris appears behind Ichirou, circling him somewhat protectively.
Y Ruler of Time (4:21:49 PM): (Love hurts)
Viewtiful Rekk (4:22:19 PM): "...I did not start this to speak with a Duel Spirit that I have already said all I have to say to."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:22:27 PM): "Mister Zandel, I'll give you one last warning."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:22:50 PM): "Split your ties from Yubel now, or face the consequences."
TheGymRat38 (4:23:42 PM): She extends her arms towards Ichirou. "Ichirou Komatsu, don't you want to feel love flowing through your being? Must you always refuse the love I offer?"
TheGymRat38 (4:24:30 PM): Hayden looks back up at Yubel. "Always? So...this guy is one of the ones that sealed you? How interesting..."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:25:26 PM)
: "You can put down your arm, Yubel. I have nothing left to say to you."
TheGymRat38 (4:26:06 PM): He returns his gaze to Ichirou and laughs. "You refused the power she offers? And you're telling me to get rid of her power? Why should I, when you use a Duel Spirit yourself?"
TheGymRat38 (4:26:52 PM)
: "More than that even, he was once joined with me until that fateful day..."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:26:53 PM): Ibris points her tail at Yubel. "That Yubel is a bad spirit! I'm a good spirit!"
TheGymRat38 (4:27:32 PM): "Good, bad, I've got power!"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:28:22 PM): "You tricked Ichirou-sama! You lied to him! You're a bad bad spirit!" Ibris snaps at the demonic spirit.
TheGymRat38 (4:29:23 PM): "Even if I wanted to separate from Yubel I wouldn't know how! Unlike you I'm not so stupid as to throw away such a partner for such meaningless reasons. Right Yubel...I'm willing to use your power to its fullest extents!"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:29:58 PM)
: "...I see. How regrettable." Ichirou places his deck into his Duel Disk, activating it.
Viewtiful Rekk (4:30:09 PM): "Then I will do what I must."
TheGymRat38 (4:31:22 PM): Yubel wraps her arms around Hayden from behind and her third eye glows. "Then accept all of my love and my strength. We will suffer together, and defeat this man who refused my love."
TheGymRat38 (4:31:52 PM): "Ichirou Komatsu...witness the depths of a heart of darkness!"
TheGymRat38 (4:32:55 PM): A third eye, identical to the one Yubel has, appears on Hayden's forehead. Now Hayden's eyes all match Yubel's.
Y Ruler of Time (4:33:05 PM)
: ("Not my fault.")
TheGymRat38 (4:33:06 PM): "This is power professor. So now I'll teach you a lesson!"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:33:19 PM)
: "...Power, you say?"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:34:20 PM): "You know nothing of power, you pathetic child."
TheGymRat38 (4:34:58 PM): The darkness wraps around his left arm, forming into a dark purple duel disk with a cemetery slot like a fanged mouth, and the disk slots like a talon'd-wing. A blue orb rests at the top with the Eye of Horus at the center.
Viewtiful Rekk (4:35:30 PM): "I shall go first." Ichirou draws six cards.
Viewtiful Rekk (4:36:46 PM): "To begin, the Field Spell known as Dragon's Paradise."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:38:02 PM): The darkness around them begins rapidly shifting to a large park, where various dragon monsters frolic all about them.
Viewtiful Rekk (4:39:14 PM): "I summon Axe Dragonute." A black winged dragon holding a massive axe appears and roars. (2000/1200) "Whenever a dragon-type monster is normal summoned, Dragon's Paradise gains 1 counter."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:39:32 PM): "For every counter on my Paradise, my dragons gain 100 ATK." (2100/1200) "End turn."
TheGymRat38 (4:39:52 PM): "I draw!"
TheGymRat38 (4:41:37 PM)
: "Heh...I'll activate Offerings to the Doomed! At the cost of my next draw phase I'll blast your dragon!"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:42:15 PM)
: The Dragonute is destroyed.
TheGymRat38 (4:42:53 PM): "Now I summon Reflect Bounder(1700/1000)!" The reflective monster appears.
TheGymRat38 (4:43:17 PM)
: "Direct attack, Reflect Nightmare!"
TheGymRat38 (4:43:35 PM): An image of Ichirou appears and shoots out at Ichirou, sword in hand.
Viewtiful Rekk (4:43:56 PM)
: Ichirou stiffens as he's slashed by a reflection of himself. (6300)
TheGymRat38 (4:44:26 PM): "I'll set a card face down and end my turn!"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:44:50 PM): "Draw."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:49:54 PM)
: "I will play Mirage Dragon, gaining my Paradise another token." (1800/600) "I will then play Stamping Crush on your face down card."
TheGymRat38 (4:54:40 PM): "Che, Destruction Ring is destroyed."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:54:56 PM)
: "One card face down. End turn."
TheGymRat38 (4:55:07 PM): (7500)
TheGymRat38 (4:55:16 PM)
: "My draw phase is skipped."
TheGymRat38 (4:56:01 PM)
: "I'll just set one monster in defense mode and end my turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:56:19 PM)
: "Draw."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:57:12 PM): "Dragon's Tour Guide." A very muscular bipedal dragon wearing a tuxedo appears. (2400/100)
Viewtiful Rekk (4:57:35 PM): "If Tour Guide is on my field, but my Paradise is not, it is immediately destroyed."
TheGymRat38 (4:57:55 PM): "Heh, that must make him this field card's tutor, is that right?"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:58:05 PM)
: "Quite so."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:00:12 PM): "Tour Guide, attack the defense!"
TheGymRat38 (5:00:21 PM): (admittedly no, I didn't think Ring could be chained to Chain Disappearance based on timing)
TheGymRat38 (5:00:57 PM)
: "Mystic Tomato(1400/1000) is destroyed!"
TheGymRat38 (5:01:10 PM)
: "Come forth, Yubel(0/0)!"
TheGymRat38 (5:01:23 PM)
: A copy of the monster floating behind Hayden appears in front of him.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:01:26 PM)
: "..." Ichirou frowns.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:01:45 PM): "I end my turn."
TheGymRat38 (5:01:52 PM): "Draw..."
TheGymRat38 (5:04:08 PM): "Well now, this certainly is interesting isn't it?"
TheGymRat38 (5:05:18 PM): "Meet a new face! I sacrifice Yubel!"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:05:30 PM): "...Sacrificing Yubel?"
TheGymRat38 (5:05:40 PM): "To summon Yubel-Geliebte Des Leidens(0/0)!"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:05:50 PM): Ichirou's eyes widen.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:05:57 PM): It...it's a form of Yubel I haven't seen...?!
TheGymRat38 (5:06:18 PM): Yubel with a whip made of thorns and a hot poker in the other hand appears in the original Yubel's place.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:07:33 PM): "So you haven't just been idly resting while you were sealed, have you?"
TheGymRat38 (5:08:11 PM): "My power has grown with his aid, together we are stronger than you ever were. This is the fate you receive for giving up my love."
kwikkidus (5:08:26 PM): Half the school away... "Something feels off." Glance towards the duel. "...Hum."
TheGymRat38 (5:09:03 PM): "I'll place two cards face down and end my turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:09:10 PM): "...Draw..."
TheGymRat38 (5:09:24 PM): The new Yubel's eyes glow.
TheGymRat38 (5:09:38 PM)
: "The Mistress of Suffering activates her effect!"
TheGymRat38 (5:10:13 PM)
: "Since you had at least one monster on your field at the start of the turn you have no choice but to conduct your battle phase and attack with at least one monster this turn!"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:10:34 PM)
: "...I see..."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:10:46 PM): "And once I do that, this form will reflect the damage back to me, I assume..."
TheGymRat38 (5:11:13 PM): "Unfortunately in exchange for that power this form loses the damage reflection ability."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:13:20 PM): "...Dragon of the End - Ragnarok!" A long serpentine dragon appears and roars. (1800/1600) -> (2200/1600)
Viewtiful Rekk (5:14:24 PM): "Ragnarok! Attack Yubel - Geliebte Des Leidens!"
TheGymRat38 (5:16:26 PM): Yubel's wings close in front of her, fending off the attack. "Obviously I take no damage."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:17:05 PM)
: "..End turn."
TheGymRat38 (5:17:12 PM): "I'll draw."
TheGymRat38 (5:17:37 PM)
: "I set a monster in defense mode and end my turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:17:54 PM)
: "Draw..."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:19:24 PM): "Dragon's Tour Guide! Attack the defense!"
TheGymRat38 (5:20:12 PM): "Morphing Jar is destroyed..."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:20:32 PM)
: Ichirou calmly places the three cards in his hand in the graveyard.
TheGymRat38 (5:20:58 PM): Hayden smirks as he draws his new hand. "What an interesting pace we're at, right professor?"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:21:47 PM)
: "I do not understand your meaning."
TheGymRat38 (5:22:24 PM): "I guess you'll just have to figure it out."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:22:54 PM)
: "I suppose I will."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:23:01 PM): "One card face down. End turn."
TheGymRat38 (5:23:07 PM): "Draw!"
TheGymRat38 (5:23:20 PM)
: "I activate Meteor of Destruction!"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:24:13 PM)
: (5300)
Viewtiful Rekk (5:25:40 PM): Ichirou dusts himself off. "Is that all?" He asks, breathing a bit harder.
TheGymRat38 (5:27:30 PM): "I activate Heart of Destruction, discarding Giant Germ from my hand as the cost."
TheGymRat38 (5:28:01 PM)
: "Now Heart of Destruction equips to The Mistress of Suffering, granting her the power of Yubel-Der Abseuliche Ritter!"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:28:06 PM)
: "...Heart of Destruction...I do recognize that..."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:28:32 PM): (Field check?)
TheGymRat38 (5:28:35 PM): "Next I summon Sangan(1000/600) in attack mode!"
TheGymRat38 (5:30:02 PM): "I'll end my turn, and Heart of Destruction now lets every monster on the field save for Yubel to be destroyed!"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:30:47 PM)
: "Then I will choose now to activate my trap."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:31:01 PM): Dragon's Tour Guide takes in a breath and starts spewing fire over the whole field.
TheGymRat38 (5:31:35 PM): "Heh...and what trap would that be?"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:31:44 PM)
: "Burst Breath. Tribute a Dragon-type monster to destroy all monsters on the fiels whose DEF are equal to or lower than the tributed monster's ATK."
TheGymRat38 (5:32:11 PM): "Pity, reveal trap card, Dark Bribe!"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:32:29 PM)
: "Tch." Ichirou draws one card.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:34:05 PM): "For Dragon's Tour Guide being sent to the grave by the cost of Burst Breath, Dragon of the End - Ragnarok activates. I gain 200 life points for each of its levels." (6100)
TheGymRat38 (5:34:34 PM): "Sangan's effect also activates."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:34:37 PM)
: "But since it goes to the grave at the same time as Mirage Dragon, I gain no life points off of that."
TheGymRat38 (5:34:49 PM): A card slips out of his deck and into his hand.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:35:50 PM)
: ...Likely another Yubel... He glances at the set card. His set card...if he did retrieve Yubel, that's likely a trap to switch my attack from his Mistress of Suffering to the Yubel he intends to summon.
TheGymRat38 (5:38:04 PM): Hayden holds up the card he retrieved. "I've chosen Yubel for the effect."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:38:26 PM)
: "Very well."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:40:22 PM): "Draw."
TheGymRat38 (5:41:25 PM): "During your standby phase Heart of Destruction is destroyed."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:42:01 PM)
: "I summon a level 5 monster from my hand."
TheGymRat38 (5:42:13 PM): "Level six? Okha then?"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:42:33 PM)
: A blue dragon with blades covering its body appears and roars. (2100/1700)
TheGymRat38 (5:42:58 PM): "Well that's interesting for sure...so its like Cyber Dragon then?"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:43:00 PM)
: "Blade Dragon. When you have a monster and I do not, I may special summon it from my hand"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:43:20 PM): "When a Dragon-type monster is special summoned, my Paradise gains 2 tokens."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:44:05 PM): "I will then normal summon Spear Dragon." (1900/0) The dragon appears and disappears immediately.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:44:36 PM): "I then exclude Spear Dragon to summon Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon." A massive black dragon coated in metal appears and lets out an earth shaking roar. (2800/2400)
Viewtiful Rekk (5:45:17 PM)
: "I will then play Stamping Crush on your set card."
TheGymRat38 (5:46:53 PM): "Hmph, Staunch Defender is destroyed."
TheGymRat38 (5:46:56 PM)
: (7000)
Viewtiful Rekk (5:47:18 PM)
: "Red-Eyes's effect. I will retrieve White-Horned Dragon from my grave."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:47:47 PM): A red dragon with a glowing white horn appears and roars. (2200/1400)
TheGymRat38 (5:48:03 PM): "Lose that for Morphing Jar?"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:48:18 PM)
: "Indeed I did."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:48:25 PM): "How many spell cards in your grave?"
TheGymRat38 (5:50:30 PM): "I've got three spells in my graveyard. Offerings to the Doomed, Meteor of Destruction, and Heart of Destruction."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:50:40 PM)
: "Consider them all removed from play."
TheGymRat38 (5:51:02 PM): The three named cards slide out of his graveyard slot. Hayden shrugs as he places them into his back pocket. "Removed."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:51:18 PM)
: "White-Horns gains 300 for each one. And as I now have 11 counters on Dragon's Paradise..."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:51:56 PM): Red-Eyes: 3900/2400, Blade Dragon: 3200/1700, White-Horns: 4200/1400
Viewtiful Rekk (5:53:19 PM): "...Do you feel at all frightened by my power, Mr. Zandel?"
TheGymRat38 (5:53:55 PM): "I gotta say old man, I'm impressed. You're quite the duelist. So many monsters so quickly, and with such levels of power."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:57:31 PM)
: "As I had no monsters on my field during my standby phase...end turn."
TheGymRat38 (5:57:38 PM): "I'll draw!"
kwikkidus (5:57:48 PM)
: "...Hum..." At that moment the hellnurse wanders through the border of the game, hand on her hip. "Ichirou...and a Yubel? I thought we were done with that thing."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:58:11 PM): "It's not me this time, Miss Melancholy."
TheGymRat38 (5:58:28 PM): "Well look, its the Hellnurse."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:58:30 PM)
: "You do realize it's polite to knock before you barge in on somebody else's Darkness Game?"
Y Ruler of Time (5:58:31 PM): Meanwhile, outside the Darkness Game. "ZANACHAN-SENSEI! Come on, LET ME IN!"
kwikkidus (5:59:37 PM): "...Heh... Well." She simply smirks. "I suppose you should probably page someone before entering into one, Ichirou. Given your condition, are you certain this is a good idea?"
TheGymRat38 (6:00:22 PM): "Che...I'll place two cards face down and end my turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:01:06 PM)
: Ichirou's breathing seems a tad labored. "...I'm fine." He draws.
Polk Kitsune (6:02:11 PM): From the other side, one could hear a sigh. "If you say so... But I can't believe it's come down to this..."
TheGymRat38 (6:02:16 PM): "Fine? I'm in the lead old man, and you're supposed to be the legendary teacher!"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:02:33 PM)
: "Red-Eyes's effect!" A pillar of darkness shoots up. "Mirage Dragon rises from the grave!" (1600/600) -> (2900/600)
Viewtiful Rekk (6:03:59 PM): "...Master Soren..." Ichirou looks back at him. "Is the Darkness Game that much of a distraction?"
TheGymRat38 (6:04:35 PM): Yubel looks around at the teachers. "Oh my, what a delightful reunion. I can feel the love..."
Polk Kitsune (6:06:07 PM): Soren pushed his glasses up. "Let's just say.. it draws a lot of attention."
Polk Kitsune (6:06:30 PM): "Besides, with such an... entity around, I could not help but be concerned."
TheGymRat38 (6:06:33 PM): "Are you going to do anything else professor? Remember, Yubel's effect still is active."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:06:39 PM)
: "...I'm aware."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:06:48 PM): "Mirage Dragon, attack!"
TheGymRat38 (6:07:04 PM): The Mistress of Suffering shrugs off the attack effortlessly.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:07:16 PM)
: "I end my turn."
TheGymRat38 (6:07:25 PM): "Draw!"
TheGymRat38 (6:07:50 PM)
: "I activate Suspicious Gift! By removing three demons in my grave I get to draw two cards."
TheGymRat38 (6:08:14 PM)
: Giant Germ, Yubel, and Sangan slide out of his graveyard slot.
TheGymRat38 (6:08:18 PM)
: He then draws two more cards.
TheGymRat38 (6:08:36 PM)
: "Perfect...I set one card face down and end."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:09:01 PM)
: "Draw."

Y Ruler of Time (6:18:45 PM): "Since when do you set foot out of the library?" asks an irritated-looking Fuji.
Hinoryu8 (6:18:58 PM): "When something catches my interest."
Hinoryu8 (6:19:27 PM): Albireo smiled. "It would not do to miss something like this, after all."
Y Ruler of Time (6:19:52 PM): "It's not like we're avoiding that by being stuck out here, is it?"
Hinoryu8 (6:20:40 PM): "We may still see what happens after the game ends, of course."
Y Ruler of Time (6:21:25 PM): "It's all about watching for you, isn't it?" Fuji frowns, "I feel useless, stuck out here and unable to help my senseis..."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:21:26 PM): Ichirou points at Mistress of Suffering. "Mirage Dragon."
TheGymRat38 (6:21:59 PM): Once again the Mistress' wings close in order to block the attack.
TheGymRat38 (6:22:04 PM)
: "Getting old isn't it?"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:22:14 PM)
: "It is your effect, not mine."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:22:15 PM): "End turn.
Hinoryu8 (6:22:19 PM): "Do you think going inside would make any difference?" Albireo continued smiling.
TheGymRat38 (6:22:29 PM):
"During your end phase I activate one of my set cards, Blazes of Demise!"
TheGymRat38 (6:22:37 PM)
: Two flame-like creatures appear on his field.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:22:40 PM)
: Ichirou frowns deeply.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:22:46 PM): He's going to summon it...
TheGymRat38 (6:23:02 PM): "This creates two Dark Flame Tokens(0/0) on my field."
TheGymRat38 (6:23:05 PM)
: "Draw!"
Y Ruler of Time (6:23:09 PM)
: Fuji cracks his knuckles and glares at the Darkness. "You're saying it wouldn't?"
TheGymRat38 (6:23:31 PM): "And now I'll sacrifice both tokens to summon Yubel(0/0)!"
Hinoryu8 (6:23:44 PM)
: "Can your teachers fight and protect you at the same time?"
Y Ruler of Time (6:24:34 PM): "...How long have you been working here, Albireo-san? If you think I can't handle myself, you haven't been paying much attention lately."
Hinoryu8 (6:25:31 PM): "Hmmm, is that so..." Albireo continued to smile. "What would you do, then, if you entered? Interrupt their duel?"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:25:34 PM): Hey guys, stop bickering. The darkness just became transparent enough for you to at least see inside.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:26:09 PM): "So...what are you going to do, now that you've summoned her?"
Y Ruler of Time (6:26:10 PM): "Ooh..." Fuji looks into the no-longer obstructive Darkness.
TheGymRat38 (6:26:34 PM): "I'll activate one of my remaining face-down cards, Assault on Goblin Head Quarters!"
Hinoryu8 (6:26:35 PM)
: "How convenient." Albireo observed.
TheGymRat38 (6:26:46 PM):
"By destroying Yubel I send the top two cards of your deck to the grave!"
Y Ruler of Time (6:26:58 PM)
: "...No..." Fuji says after a short time, grinning, "Ichriou-sensei should be fine...I just want to be there in case things don't go so well."
TheGymRat38 (6:27:12 PM): Yubel explodes...and then begins to reform even larger than before.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:27:30 PM)
: Ichirou frowns and sends Tail of Ibris and Dragon Gust to the grave.
TheGymRat38 (6:27:45 PM): "And in her place, the mighty Yubel-Der Abseuliche Ritter(0/0)!" The twin-headed dragon demon laughs deeply.
Hinoryu8 (6:28:32 PM)
: Albireo simply laughs to himself in response, and watches.
TheGymRat38 (6:29:00 PM):
"Heh, I'll end my turn, activating Ritter's effect and destroying all of your hard work!"
TheGymRat38 (6:29:08 PM)
: "Nightmare Annihilation!"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:29:15 PM)
: Everyone of the dragons is destroyed.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:30:23 PM): "...Draw."
TheGymRat38 (6:30:36 PM): "What will you do now, eh professor?"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:30:59 PM)
: Ichirou looks up at Hayden and holds a spell card.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:31:05 PM): "Dragon's Mirror activates.
TheGymRat38 (6:31:45 PM): "With that card, the only thing you could be going for is..."
kwikkidus (6:32:23 PM)
: "You should pay more attention to what he discarded. With Ibris in the grave, there is no safe call for what he intends to summon."

Viewtiful Rekk (6:33:44 PM): "...Tail of Ibris, Blade Dragon, Axe Dragonute, White-Horns Dragon, Seiyaryu..."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:33:59 PM): The five dragon spirits appear behind him and fade away.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:34:38 PM): "I call forth the ultimate dragon god of the five elements...FUSION SUMMON - FIVE GOD DRAGON!"
Hinoryu8 (6:35:00 PM): "... Now that is interesting."
Y Ruler of Time (6:35:00 PM): "Technically, Ichirou-sensei has few monsters in his deck that can deal with a monster like Yubel," Fuji observes, "so...why not go for the obvious option?"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:35:39 PM): A dragon that stands far above Yubel appears, five heads appearing one by one as each one lets out a roar in concert. (5000/5000)
Viewtiful Rekk (6:36:14 PM): "This grants Dragon's Paradise two more counters!" (5000/5000) -> (6500/5000)
Viewtiful Rekk (6:36:26 PM): "Equip Spell - Rainbow Veil!"
TheGymRat38 (6:36:45 PM): "Impossible!"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:37:03 PM)
: "It is all too possible, Mr. Zandel."
Polk Kitsune (6:37:09 PM): "... Isn't that word popular?"
Hinoryu8 (6:37:16 PM): Albireo turned to leave.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:37:16 PM): "...now I ask you again. Will you separate your bond with Yubel?"
TheGymRat38 (6:37:57 PM): "I refuse!"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:38:04 PM)
: "...I see...."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:38:09 PM): "Five God Dragon..."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:38:12 PM): "FIVE GOD STORM!"
TheGymRat38 (6:39:14 PM): The five-point flare of energy engulfs Abseuliche Ritter and vaporizes her, completely engulfing Hayden's field.
TheGymRat38 (6:39:41 PM)
: When the energy fades away, Hayden is standing there, a furious look on his face as his life points rapidly fall.
TheGymRat38 (6:39:44 PM)
: (500)
TheGymRat38 (6:39:57 PM)
: "You...you bastard...you've made your final mistake!"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:40:17 PM)
: "..." Ichirou stares at him silently.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:40:21 PM): "Don't do it, Mr. Zandel."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:40:32 PM): "If you do, you will go past the point of no return."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:41:19 PM): "I set one card face down and end my turn."
TheGymRat38 (6:41:30 PM): "Come forth, the ultimate nightmare!"
Hinoryu8 (6:41:54 PM)
: Albireo paused. "... Perhaps it has not been entirely decided yet." He turned again and resumed watching.
TheGymRat38 (6:42:07 PM): "Yubel-Der Extrem Traurig Drachen(0/0)!" A giant demonic dragon, equal in size to Five God Dragon, forms in place of the previous form.
TheGymRat38 (6:42:26 PM)
: "Draw!"
Y Ruler of Time (6:42:27 PM)
: "...No...Ichirou-sensei has won."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:42:29 PM): "...fool..." Ichirou mutters.
TheGymRat38 (6:42:49 PM): "Won? Nobody can defeat this power! Yubel...let's destroy him completely!"
Hinoryu8 (6:43:24 PM): "Yes, but that's not what interests me."
TheGymRat38 (6:43:36 PM): He holds up his drawn card. "Farewell professor! Mystical Space Typhoon, blow away the veil!"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:44:11 PM)
: "..." Ichirou silently looks down as the veil disappears from his dragon.
TheGymRat38 (6:44:53 PM): "Yubel...use your power! Five God Dragon, come and face my ultimate dragon!"
TheGymRat38 (6:45:08 PM)
: Yubel's eyes glow, and the dragon fusion's eyes glow in response.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:45:22 PM)
: The 10 eyes of the dragon all glow red as they shoot another five-pointed flare of energy at Yubel.
TheGymRat38 (6:46:17 PM): "Nightmare Pain!"
TheGymRat38 (6:46:57 PM): Black thorny vines shoot out as the energy attack is sucked into Yubel's third eye. The vines shoot through the opposing dragon's chest and wrap around Ichirou.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:47:35 PM)
: Ichirou screams out as the vines rake over his body, one of his hands tightly clutching over his heart.
TheGymRat38 (6:47:47 PM): "Hahahaha, the victory belongs to me!"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:47:58 PM)
: "In-instant Spell, Activate!"
TheGymRat38 (6:48:07 PM): "What?!"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:48:12 PM)
: Ichirou's face down card flips up. "Emergency Provisions!"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:48:31 PM): "I sacrifice my face down Damage Condenser to grant myself 1000 life points!" (7100)
Viewtiful Rekk (6:49:17 PM): As the vines finish tearing the dragon apart and retract from Ichirou, he drops to one knee. (600)
TheGymRat38 (6:49:56 PM): "Bastard...you just barely avoided the killing blow. But still, what do you think you can accomplish against Yubel's supreme form?"
Y Ruler of Time (6:50:12 PM)
: "Sensei!" Fuji plants both hands against the invisible barrier.
kwikkidus (6:50:20 PM): "Ichirou..."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:50:26 PM): Ichirou lets out a cough as an extra card appears in his hand.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:50:43 PM)
: "When a fusion she was a part of is destroyed...and it was a correctly done Fusion Summon...Ibris returns to my hand..."
TheGymRat38 (6:51:11 PM): "What? Your pathetic little spirit partner? She's useless against Yubel!"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:51:29 PM)
: "Ibris...is not pathetic..."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:52:02 PM): "She will always return to me....no matter the risk to herself....she would give her life in an instant to protect me...as I would her..."
Hinoryu8 (6:52:25 PM): "Let's see what you will do, then..."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:52:26 PM): "That is the bond that we share..." Ichirou slowly gets back to his feet. "...Can you say that you or Yubel would make such a sacrifice for each other...?"
TheGymRat38 (6:53:37 PM): "Who cares? Bonds? What meaningless crap! The only things in this world that matter are power and thrill."
TheGymRat38 (6:53:46 PM)
: His bi-colored eyes widen for a moment.
TheGymRat38 (6:53:49 PM)
: "Heh..."
TheGymRat38 (6:54:19 PM): "If you're so close to her and so against me having a partner...let's up the ante. After all, this is a Darkness Game."
TheGymRat38 (6:54:43 PM): "The loser of this game...has their partner sealed away!"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:54:43 PM)
: "....what?"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:55:13 PM): "..." Ichirou looks down at his hand. "...Ibris..."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:55:30 PM): "...We accept your challenge."
TheGymRat38 (6:56:18 PM): "Then I'll set one card face down and end my turn!"
kwikkidus (6:56:39 PM)
:
"...Ichirou. You realize what it would mean if you were to lose, correct?"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:56:45 PM): "...I am aware."
TheGymRat38 (6:57:25 PM): "Heh, with my face-down card no matter what he tries to do I can use Drachen's effect to end this duel!"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:57:26 PM)
: He looks back at them, a bit of a sad smile on his face. "...I apologize, you two. I gravely underestimated how powerful Yubel had become while she was sealed."
Polk Kitsune (6:57:30 PM): ".. You were always the brave one. Reckless, but brave."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:57:35 PM): "...I have to use that power."
TheGymRat38 (6:58:01 PM): "You should say your last farewell to Ibris while you have the chance professor!"
Y Ruler of Time (6:58:05 PM)
: "DO WHATEVER IT TAKES, SENSEI!" Fuji bellows, "JUST WIN!"
kwikkidus (6:58:28 PM): "Just end this farce of a duel. His bluster is becoming tiresome."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:58:41 PM): "Heh. Very well, Miss Melancholy."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:59:02 PM): He turns and places a hand on his deck. After a moment of silence, he pulls the top card off in a slash, leaving a dark streak behind it.
TheGymRat38 (6:59:17 PM): Hayden's eyes narrow. "What was that?"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:59:43 PM)
: "...I summon Tail of Ibris, in attack mode." The serpentine bespectacled dragon appears. (1900/1000)
Viewtiful Rekk (7:00:02 PM): "I send one card from my hand to my graveyard as a cost."
Y Ruler of Time (7:00:35 PM): "...Sensei's power..." Fuji stares on in awe, "it's very rare that he uses this..."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:01:10 PM): "...Are you aware of how many fusion cards there are in the game, Mister Zandel?"
TheGymRat38 (7:01:53 PM): "Not particularly, but probably several hundred I would assume. What does it even matter?"
Viewtiful Rekk (7:02:44 PM)
: "There are 11 spell cards that create Fusion Monsters." Ichirou flips over his drawn card. "This is the 12th that nobody was ever meant to see."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:02:51 PM): "Instant Spell - Perfect Fusion."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:03:38 PM): After he places his card into his Duel Disk, a vortex of energy explodes open above the two duelists.
TheGymRat38 (7:04:24 PM): "That nobody was ever meant to see? What kind of stupid shit is that? What's the point of this? No fusion can defeat Yubel!"
Viewtiful Rekk (7:04:46 PM)
: "Perfect Fusion's effect allows me to conduct a fusion with monsters from both sides of the field."
TheGymRat38 (7:04:59 PM): "Both...sides..."
TheGymRat38 (7:05:06 PM)
: He laughs.
Viewtiful Rekk (7:05:30 PM)
: "Ibris is special in the fact that she can fuse with any monster and unlock that monster's true potential...even a monster such as Yubel."
TheGymRat38 (7:05:31 PM): "You can't possibly fuse with my side, all I have is Yubel. Don't say laughable things like that."
TheGymRat38 (7:05:48 PM)
: "There's no way a fusion of these two random monsters exists!"
Viewtiful Rekk (7:06:13 PM)
: "...If you will not believe my words, then I will force your eyes to believe me."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:06:31 PM): "I fuse together Tail of Ibris and Yubel - Das Extremer Trauig Drachen!"
Viewtiful Rekk (7:07:09 PM): Both monsters glow with an orange aura and are sucked into the vortex in the sky.
TheGymRat38 (7:07:28 PM): "No!"
TheGymRat38 (7:07:35 PM)
: Behind him Yubel shrieks in horror.
TheGymRat38 (7:07:39 PM)
: "How can this be possible?"
Viewtiful Rekk (7:08:38 PM)
: "...Fusion Summon - Yubel - The Dragon Queen of Sorrow!"
TheGymRat38 (7:10:08 PM): "How..."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:10:30 PM)
: Yubel - Das Extremer Trauig Drachen appears on Ichirou's field again, its purple scales turned blue, and a third draconic head extending from its chest. (0/0)
TheGymRat38 (7:11:18 PM): "What...does it do?"
Viewtiful Rekk (7:11:20 PM)
: "Yubel - The Dragon Queen of Sorrow's effect. It absorbs all the ATK of the monsters used to fusion summon it...as well as all of the ATK of the monsters that Yubel - Das Extremer Trauig Drachen bested."
TheGymRat38 (7:11:56 PM): "That means..."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:12:00 PM)
: The three dragon heads screech out as the monster's ATK skyrockets. (10200)
TheGymRat38 (7:12:34 PM): "It doesn't matter, he'll have to get past my defense first to hit me at all!"
Viewtiful Rekk (7:12:44 PM)
: "...I sincerely apologize for this, Mr. Zandel..."
TheGymRat38 (7:12:49 PM): Despite his set cards, Hayden clearly appears nervous.
Viewtiful Rekk (7:13:06 PM)
: "I see so much of myself in you...were you not such a threat to the other students, I would've taken a route different than this one."
TheGymRat38 (7:13:35 PM): "Don't act so cocky, its not over yet! I can summon Yubel again and destroy that beast!"
Viewtiful Rekk (7:14:02 PM)
: He points a single finger at Hayden. "Dragon Queen of Suffering! Attack directly, Nightmare Destroyer Burst!"
TheGymRat38 (7:16:20 PM): "Reveal trap card, Dead Dragon Spirit-Zoma!"
TheGymRat38 (7:16:39 PM)
: "This trap becomes a monster on my field in defense mode, the Dragon Spirit Zoma(1800/500)!"
Viewtiful Rekk (7:16:56 PM)
: "Instant Spell!" Ichirou grabs the last card in his hand.
Viewtiful Rekk (7:17:02 PM): "Mystical Space Typhoon destroys Zoma!"
TheGymRat38 (7:17:07 PM): "No!"
TheGymRat38 (7:17:27 PM)
: The ghostly dragon lets out one last shrill cry before it is blown away by the gust.
Viewtiful Rekk (7:17:53 PM)
: Black vines shoot from the ground and wrap around Hayden's arms and legs as the three dragon heads charge an attack in concert.

TheGymRat38 (7:20:38 PM): "Fool...with the power of Yubel the physical damage you inflict on me will be dealt to you instead! This one attack will most likely kill you!"
Viewtiful Rekk (7:21:41 PM)
: "I won't die."
TheGymRat38 (7:22:16 PM): "Then...let's find out if you can handle it!"
Viewtiful Rekk (7:22:26 PM)
: "Very well."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:22:30 PM)
: The three dragons fire.
TheGymRat38 (7:23:00 PM): Hayden laughs as the attack completely engulfs both himself and Yubel.
TheGymRat38 (7:24:26 PM)
: (0)
Viewtiful Rekk (7:24:36 PM)
: Ichirou only sighs. Too close...
TheGymRat38 (7:24:57 PM): Black vines reach up from beneath Ichirou and wrap around him.
TheGymRat38 (7:25:15 PM)
: Through the flames Hayden can be seen, grinning like a lunatic. "And now its your turn professor!"
Viewtiful Rekk (7:25:17 PM)
: Ichirou looks down and sighs. "Miss Melancholy...I do hope you have some morphine on you."
TheGymRat38 (7:25:25 PM): "Nightmare Pain!"
kwikkidus (7:25:58 PM)
: "...Regrettably, I have forgotten it. Try to remain sane."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:27:05 PM): As the vines rake around him, Ichirou's eyes widen. He lets out a single blood-soaked cough as his body falls limp.
Polk Kitsune (7:27:16 PM): "Nothing a little sake won't help dull up..."
TheGymRat38 (7:27:50 PM): As soon as Ichirou falls, Hayden's eyes return to their normal green and his third eye fades. "Yubel...it was a thrill..."
TheGymRat38 (7:28:10 PM)
: He falls to his knees as Yubel reaches out towards him moments before shattering into tiny motes of light.
Viewtiful Rekk (7:28:45 PM)
: Ichirou lays motionless on the ground as Ibris appears in front of him, and uses her tail to flip him over.
Viewtiful Rekk (7:29:26 PM): She then pulls out a marker...and draws glasses, a mustache, and a beard on his face.
TheGymRat38 (7:30:35 PM): Hayden stares at the dragon in astonishment...and then falls face-first onto the ground as the darkness fades. He can't help himself...he's laughing.
TheGymRat38 (7:30:45 PM)
: "What a ridiculous finish!"
Viewtiful Rekk (7:31:01 PM)
: As Hayden laughs at him, Ichirou sits up. "...ogh. ...that hurt...a lot...."
kwikkidus (7:31:10 PM): Zaniah walks up to Ichirou, one hand in her pocket. "Are you entirely alright?"
Y Ruler of Time (7:31:19 PM): Fuji storms in as soon as the Darkness is gone.
Hinoryu8 (7:31:20 PM): "Well, then."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:31:35 PM): "Professor Fuji, please aprehend Mr. Zandel."
Hinoryu8 (7:31:42 PM): Albireo simply remains where he was standing.
Y Ruler of Time (7:31:44 PM): He proceeds to grab Hayden around the neck and lift him off his feet. "With pleasure," he growls.
Viewtiful Rekk (7:31:55 PM): He then turns to Zaniah. "I'm afraid you and I won't be able to duel for a while, but I'm mostly fine."
Polk Kitsune (7:32:18 PM): Soren walked over to Ichirou, adjusting his glasses.
kwikkidus (7:33:35 PM): "I see..." How very convenient for you, I am sure.
Viewtiful Rekk (7:33:45 PM): "How did I do, Master Soren?"
Polk Kitsune (7:35:49 PM): "Great job, Ichirou-san. Impressive, I must say." He said with a nod. "Though I worry slightly about your health."
kwikkidus (7:39:41 PM)
: "As long as Ibris exists, he will theoretically be fine."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:39:56 PM): "Heh...theoretically, at least."
Y Ruler of Time (7:40:26 PM): "Sensei. Permission to beat Hayden-kun's face in."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:40:43 PM): "...that seems...a tad overboard, Professor."
kwikkidus (7:40:54 PM): "...As long as I am the nurse, it will be certain." A 'that is that' nod later, and she's heading over to check on Hayden. "No, he is more useful to us as the declawed beast he is now."
TheGymRat38 (7:41:26 PM): "Hit me Fuji and you'll be facing the same charges that Brucey-boy is..."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:41:30 PM)
: "...as for me..." He slowly brings himself to his feet, throwing an arm over Soren as he does.
Viewtiful Rekk (7:42:55 PM): "Just...toss me at that mattress and I'll be fine." He muttered, indicating his bed.
Polk Kitsune (7:43:49 PM): Soren chuckled. "As you wish." And with that, the teacher was down. "Need anything else?"
Y Ruler of Time (7:43:58 PM): Fuji glares in Hayden's face. "Senseis. Request permission to apply anesthetic to Hayden-kun."
TheGymRat38 (7:44:52 PM): "Also illegal..."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:45:24 PM)
: "Ah...no, should be fine. Thank you, Master Soren." He looks over at Fuji. "No...just detain him in an empty classroom or something for the moment..."
kwikkidus (7:45:55 PM): "Now, now, Fuji. Hayden is injured. He can hardly hold himself up..."
Y Ruler of Time (7:46:06 PM): "..." Fuji looks more than a little angry. "...Fine."
kwikkidus (7:46:21 PM): "Leave him in the infirmary. We will take care of him." A smirk dances its way to her face.
Y Ruler of Time (7:46:50 PM): "..." Fuji nods, before carrying Hayden out.
Viewtiful Rekk (7:47:02 PM): "...Miss Melancholy. If you could stay behind for a moment."
Hinoryu8 (7:47:11 PM): Albireo smiled and turned to head back to the library.
kwikkidus (7:47:56 PM): "Certainly." She turns, eying Ichirou. "What is it."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:48:17 PM): "...Ibris saw the two students that you apprehended."
kwikkidus (7:49:13 PM): "Oh... I see. Your point?"
Viewtiful Rekk (7:49:20 PM): "I haven't brought it up publicly because you would doubtlessly be dismissed from the school if I did."
kwikkidus (7:49:58 PM): "I personally find your manners of dealing with this problem much more suspect than my own."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:50:04 PM): "But you need to release them, and you need to make sure you don't do the same treatment with Mr. Zandel."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:50:18 PM): "My manner does not involve torture."
kwikkidus (7:50:45 PM): "Your manner is the sort that would sit by and let an enemy simply grow stronger. What could possibly compel you to do that, hnn?"
Viewtiful Rekk (7:51:19 PM): "...I do not consider you my enemy."
Polk Kitsune (7:51:22 PM): "..."
kwikkidus (7:53:28 PM): "I was talking about the Order. Sending instructions not to act... if I may, what on earth were you thinking?"
Viewtiful Rekk (7:54:09 PM): "The Order of Holy Suffering was a cornered beast."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:54:47 PM): "I did not want to risk aggravating it and potentially involving students without knowing more."
kwikkidus (7:55:32 PM): "Even without aggravation, they saw fit to attack us at the infirmary itself. Are you aware of what exactly Kazimir Farkas did to one of my assistants?"
Viewtiful Rekk (7:55:35 PM): "Considering how readily my instructions were subverted and what happened as a result...I'd say my concerns were valid."
Polk Kitsune (7:55:42 PM): "AHEM! " Soren said, tapping his foot to the floor. "You two..."
Polk Kitsune (7:55:52 PM): "It's over with..."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:56:01 PM): "I'm aware of what he did as a response to your torture of his friends!"
kwikkidus (7:57:25 PM): "That's patently impossible. He was unaware of the circumstances around them until after he had already finished the job with Alastor. You may be willing to stand idly by and wait while people like that are around, but I am not."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:58:24 PM): "Acting is one thing, projecting your own nightmares on to other students because you're unable to deal with them is another entirely!"
kwikkidus (8:01:26 PM): "...If you think that is a nightmare, I regret to inform you that you are sorely mistaken."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:06:13 PM): "..At any rate...unless you want this academy to belong to somebody else, I suggest you not repeat yourself with Mr. Zandel."
Polk Kitsune (8:06:29 PM): "... Miss Zaniah, you have released those students, correct?"
kwikkidus (8:07:07 PM): "Certainly... if in the future, you do not treat our students with the same respect as you treat your family." She then looks towards Soren. "This morning, actually. One night is enough 'enlightenment,' as they call it."
Polk Kitsune (8:08:36 PM): He gave a nod. "Good... Because even if these weren't acting lawfully, they are still our students. Discipline should not break someone, but teach them, none the less..."
kwikkidus (8:11:30 PM): "I do not require lectures, old man. is there anything else? I have things to attend to."
Polk Kitsune (8:13:01 PM): He gave a sigh. "No, I supose not. But I would rather that our students don't have to go through that again in the future."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:15:10 PM): "...No, I have nothing else."
kwikkidus (8:16:27 PM): "As expected. Heal quickly." Zaniah heads off, for her infirmary.
Viewtiful Rekk (8:16:41 PM): "..." He sighs.
Polk Kitsune (8:17:22 PM): Soren followed by a sigh of his own. "sometimes, I wonder."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:19:26 PM): "If not for certain circumstances...I'dve tried to get her drummed out of her ea dozen times by now..."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:20:48 PM): He looks down.
Polk Kitsune (8:21:26 PM): "But this is beyond your call, or in your control, Ichirou-san."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:22:42 PM): "I suppose, yes."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:24:47 PM): "Altogether, the duel and my use of Ibris's seal..."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:24:56 PM): "It cost me 25 years, Master Soren."
Polk Kitsune (8:25:17 PM): Soren gave a low sigh. "I'm sorry to hear..."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:25:41 PM): "Heh...I think it was worth it, to make sure Yubel stays gone this time..."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:26:01 PM): "Just...I guess I have to move my retirement up a bit, now."
Polk Kitsune (8:26:37 PM): "Hopefully, yes."He looked down. "I just hope it wont mean you'll die before me."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:28:05 PM): "Heh...and you think I want you to die before me?"
Polk Kitsune (8:29:00 PM): He chuckled. "Hey, I'm the one who's been around longer than you have, sonny."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:33:40 PM): "Yes...I suppose you're right."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:34:09 PM): He sighs. "I wonder how much longer I can keep it secret from Zaniah."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:34:34 PM): "Not to mention my students..."
Polk Kitsune (8:36:29 PM): "As long as we can... If anyone were to know, old friend." He gave a low sigh, sitting down, and pulling out his bottle of spirits.
Viewtiful Rekk (8:37:15 PM): "Mmn..."
Polk Kitsune (8:37:52 PM): "But the day will come..."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:38:20 PM): "...I'll be ready for it when it does."
Polk Kitsune (8:38:42 PM): "Good..." And down the hatch it goes.
