Rekk (9:42:21 PM):
Y Ruler of Time (9:43:33 PM): The Abandoned Dorm. Dark, musty, about ready to collapse, and completely unoccupied.
Y Ruler of Time (9:43:49 PM): Thus it is naturally a wonderful place on the island to house a base of operations.
Y Ruler of Time (9:44:53 PM): Within one of the larger rooms, someone has apparently done their best to make things look more elegant. Red banners hang from the ceiling, and at the end, mounted on the wall, is what appears to be a series of bedsheets.
Y Ruler of Time (9:45:17 PM): Upon them, someone has painted a symbol. A large eye, being pierced by a dagger. It is a sort of faded brown shade.
Y Ruler of Time (9:45:27 PM): Kazimir does wish it didn't dry that color.
Y Ruler of Time (9:46:06 PM): Kazimir himself is at the foot of this makeshift altar, sitting cross-legged in his black clothing and red cloak, as he waits patiently for his guest to awaken.
Viewtiful Rekk (9:47:54 PM): "Ngh...." Isabel slowly opens her eyes, a hand drifting to the point where Kazimir had stricken her earlier. She slowly sits up, before becoming conscious of her surroundings and immediately darts upwards.
Y Ruler of Time (9:48:36 PM): "Miss Marias!" Kazimir chirps, happy to see that the girl has come to, "so happy to see you on your feet..."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:48:48 PM): "...You...." She says, glaring at Kazimir. "You fucking little...I'm gonna wring your neck shut!" She seethes and immediately runs at him.
TheGymRat38 (9:49:13 PM): And is promptly tripped by an extended booted foot.
Viewtiful Rekk (9:49:52 PM): "Grrhhk!" She slips and drops to the ground. "G-god dammit!" She looks upwards at the owner of the errant foot.
TheGymRat38 (9:50:10 PM): Hayden smirks down at her and raises a hand in greeting. "Yo Marias!"
Y Ruler of Time (9:50:16 PM): "Thank you, Hayden," Kazimir expresses, clasping his hands in front of him.
Viewtiful Rekk (9:50:50 PM): "Zandel! You...you set me up for this, you little shit!" She says to the upperclassman.
TheGymRat38 (9:51:54 PM): He shrugs. "Che, you trusted me. What the hell else did you expect?"
Y Ruler of Time (9:51:59 PM): "Now now, no need for anyone to get angry," Kazimir says, waving his hands placatingly.
Y Ruler of Time (9:52:57 PM): "We are here to ensure that Miss Marias is exposed to the path to enlightenment. This matter must be handled efficiently."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:53:02 PM): She looks about ready to hop up and strangle Hayden, but stops and slowly gets back up.
Viewtiful Rekk (9:56:55 PM): "....I don't need your 'enlightenment', Farkas." She says, her temper just barely in check. "Just point me towards the exit so I can beat the hell out of both of you and get on with my life."
Y Ruler of Time (9:57:06 PM): "Ahem," Kazimir clears his throat, "that, I must inform you, is not an option." He removes a vial from his pocket, removes the stopper, and takes a whiff of the fumes that float out.
Y Ruler of Time (9:57:58 PM): He appears woozy for a moment, but catches himself, and replaces the stopper. "Hayden," he says, tossing the vial towards the Red, "please make sure Miss Marias inhales some of this."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:58:15 PM): Isabel immediately moves away from Hayden.
TheGymRat38 (10:00:09 PM): Hayden catches the bottle and makes a grab for Isabel's uniform.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:01:19 PM): Isabel's uniform is grabbed...to which she responds by aiming a punch for Hayden's jaw.
TheGymRat38 (10:02:07 PM): When the punch comes swinging he pulls on the jacket, dragging her towards him and sending the fist flying to the right of his head.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:03:14 PM): "Dammit...let me go!" She yells, attempting to shove the older student off of her in any way possible, including a fair few kicks.
TheGymRat38 (10:03:52 PM): The Austrian teen grimaces as her kicks smash against his shins, and a few blows slam into his chest.
TheGymRat38 (10:04:17 PM): Pushing the fury down he spins her around and drags her back against his chest, left arm trapping her arms.
TheGymRat38 (10:04:34 PM): "Sit still Marias, this shit won't hurt you, but I will if you don't stop!"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:05:36 PM): "Hurt me!? I'm gonna fucking KILL YOU if you don't let me go this instant, Zandel!" She yells out, still struggling.
TheGymRat38 (10:06:06 PM): "Che, whatever bitch." As quickly as he can he brings the vial in his right hand around in front of her and up towards her nose.
Y Ruler of Time (10:06:32 PM): "Ah, such violence..." Kazimir muses, smiling, "that enthusiastic attitude, that willingness to hurt...hopefully you'll learn to control that, for the good of the Order..."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:07:55 PM): "Fuck you and fuck your order!" She seethes at Kazimir as the vial is brought under her nose. "...Ur...urgh..." She mutters, suddenly becoming woozy again.
TheGymRat38 (10:08:25 PM): Hayden smirks and pulls the vial away, releasing her and shoving her forwards. "And there, violence accomplished."
Y Ruler of Time (10:08:35 PM): "The feeling you are experiencing now is a brief side-effect of the gas taking effect," Kazimir explains
Y Ruler of Time (10:09:06 PM): "However, now the sensitivity of your touch will increase, up to fourfold depending on the physiology of the consumer."
Y Ruler of Time (10:09:33 PM): "In any case, anything you feel should be twice to thrice as great."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:09:34 PM): She barely manages to keep her footing when shoved forward. She takes in a few breathes as she feels feeling slowly coming back to her.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:09:57 PM): "....Increasing my sensitivity to pain..."
Y Ruler of Time (10:10:10 PM): "For example, while this would normally only hurt a little..." Kazimir bends down to Isabel, and pinches her arm. Hard.
Y Ruler of Time (10:10:21 PM): "It might actually draw a reaction now."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:11:10 PM): She flinches visibly and immediately pulls her arm away from Kazimir. "...pain for enlightenment..."
TheGymRat38 (10:11:37 PM): Hayden smirks. "Told ya she was smart."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:12:02 PM): She looks down at the floor, then up at the ceiling....and placed a hand to her face, before letting out a couple bitter chuckles. "Now I get it..."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:12:15 PM): "This is the Abandoned Dorm's arena, isn't it...?"
Y Ruler of Time (10:12:39 PM): "That would be correct," Kazimir says, walking away from her. Near the altar, he picks up a Duel Disk.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:12:45 PM): "All those students in the Hellnurse's infirmary...you're a buncha fuckin' Hell Kaiser wannabes!"
Y Ruler of Time (10:13:04 PM): "Hell Kaiser?" Kazimir spits suddenly.
Y Ruler of Time (10:13:37 PM): "Hell Kaiser Marufuji Ryo was a man who enjoyed proving he was strong by torturing those weaker than him in duels."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:14:01 PM): Isabel smirks.
TheGymRat38 (10:14:04 PM): Hayden frowns slightly and thinks "What's wrong with that?"
Y Ruler of Time (10:14:15 PM): "He had the means to open others' eyes to the way that he gained power and insight."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:14:17 PM): "And even then, in his weakest time, he was 20 times the man you are, Farkas."
Y Ruler of Time (10:14:55 PM): Kazimir shrugs, sliding the Duel Disk onto his arm. "I am not concerned with how you view me, Miss Marias."
Y Ruler of Time (10:15:19 PM): "I am concerned with making you achieve your full potential...by showing you the way."
Y Ruler of Time (10:15:30 PM): "And after you, there will be others, of course."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:15:38 PM): "Heh..."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:15:51 PM): "So you're not only a Hell Kaiser wannabe, you're a Saiou Takuma wannabe."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:16:04 PM): "You must've just loved the Genex tournament, huh."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:17:42 PM): She flips open the deck box attached to her waist and pulls her deck out. "Whatever. Give me a Duel Disk so I can kick the shit out of you and get back to my dorm before Komatsu thinks I'm sneakin' out past curfew."
Y Ruler of Time (10:18:49 PM): "Hayden, kindly supply Miss Marias with a Duel Disk."
TheGymRat38 (10:19:57 PM): Hayden rolls his eyes. "There's one on the table right over there Marias. I ain't walking for ya."
Y Ruler of Time (10:20:20 PM): Kazimir sighs, "You have no sense of hospitality, Hayden."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:20:50 PM): She lets out a snort and walks to the table before grabbing it, then walking to a position opposite Kazimir.
Y Ruler of Time (10:21:55 PM): "Ready, Miss Marias?"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:22:02 PM): She lets out a chuckle. "You're just lucky ma'am chose not to come with me tonight, y'know." She loads up her Duel Disk.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:22:13 PM): "Sure." The Duel Disk activates.
TheGymRat38 (10:23:12 PM): "Ma'am?"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:24:09 PM): She glances over at Hayden and smirks. "Nothing, Zandel." she says as she draws her starting hand.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:24:47 PM): "I activate the spell card E - Emergency Call!" She says, placing the card into her disk. "This lets me add an Elemental Hero to my hand!"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:26:06 PM): "Come out - Elemental Hero Airman!" The blue-winged hero appears, wind dancing around him. (1800/300)
Viewtiful Rekk (10:26:29 PM): "And his effect lets me add another Hero monster to my hand!" She says, smirking as she grabs another card and shows it - Elemental Hero Sparkman.
Y Ruler of Time (10:26:35 PM): "In a hurry to gain an advantage, Miss Marias?"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:27:13 PM): "One reverse card. End turn."
Y Ruler of Time (10:27:35 PM): "I believe I'll begin, then," he draws a sixth card.
Y Ruler of Time (10:28:21 PM): "Hm...I think I'll set one reverse, and one defender." The two cards appear in front of him.
Y Ruler of Time (10:28:25 PM): "That will be all."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:28:57 PM): "Idiot...draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:30:12 PM): "I activate the spell card Dark Fusion!"
TheGymRat38 (10:30:41 PM): "Oh...now it gets interesting."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:30:49 PM): She grabs two cards from her hand. "Elemental Hero Sparkman...Evil Hero Malicious Edge...fuse!"
Y Ruler of Time (10:31:56 PM): "Oh...and what's this, then?"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:32:13 PM): "Evil Hero - BLOOD VICE!" A black armored hero with two bloody vices covering his arms appears, needles jutting out from his armor. (2600/2300)
Y Ruler of Time (10:33:36 PM): Kazimir tsk'd. "Evil Heroes...you know, to me, that indicates a strong lack of faith in one's role models..."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:34:05 PM): She lets out a laugh. "Drugging and kidnapping people, and you're waving the finger at me?"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:34:28 PM): "You're so far off course, you're embarrassing yourself, Farkas."
TheGymRat38 (10:34:35 PM): "Even I admit she's got a point."
Y Ruler of Time (10:34:40 PM): "We all have our principles, Miss Marias," Kazimir shrugs, "I simply believe strongly in mine. What about you?"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:34:58 PM): "...You wanna know my principles?"
Y Ruler of Time (10:36:25 PM): "I'm quite interested, yes."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:37:31 PM): She shakes her head. "Man, this is just too surreal..." She mutters. "Tell y'what. Each time you inflict 1000 points of damage to me, I'll answer one question."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:37:47 PM): "And if you beat me, I'll answer whatever the hell you wanna know."
Y Ruler of Time (10:38:15 PM): "Ooh, an interesting proposition...offering information in exchange for pain? I like it..."
Y Ruler of Time (10:38:45 PM): "Perhaps I'll even agree to play according to the same rules, hm?"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:39:22 PM): She chuckles. "Then I'm gonna be findin' stuff out pretty quick."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:40:05 PM): "Blood Vice, attack the defender! Blood Shock Stream!"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:40:19 PM): The hero lets out a loud cry and sends several bolts of red lightning at the defender.
Y Ruler of Time (10:41:40 PM): The monster, Apprentice Magician, (400/800) lets out a cry of agony as it is torn apart.
Y Ruler of Time (10:42:07 PM): The red lightning crashes into Kazimir, causing him to convulse briefly before he recovers.
Y Ruler of Time (10:42:13 PM): (6200)
Y Ruler of Time (10:42:37 PM): "Ah..." he sighs, his eyes having rolled into the back of his head and giving him a rather disturbing appearance.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:42:38 PM): Isabel seems pleased. "First question! Regretting starting this shit with me yet?!"
TheGymRat38 (10:42:53 PM): "Spellcasters? I was hoping for something exciting..."
Y Ruler of Time (10:43:23 PM): "On the contrary, Miss Marias...I find it quite entertaining...and now I'll summon another level 2 or lower spellcaster from my deck facedown..."
Y Ruler of Time (10:43:47 PM): A second monster appears in front of him
Viewtiful Rekk (10:44:43 PM): "Airman, Attack it! Air Cutter!" The hero opens up his wings and shoots a vortex of wind at the defending monster.
Y Ruler of Time (10:45:16 PM): A second magician appears before being blown away by the strike. Immediately, another facedown monster appears in its place.
Y Ruler of Time (10:45:33 PM): "I'm out of Apprentice Magicians, but still I retain a defender, Miss Marias," Kazimir states.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:46:01 PM): She smirks. "Semi-restriction is a bitch, huh? End turn."
Y Ruler of Time (10:46:26 PM): "Wonderful...and now I draw."
Y Ruler of Time (10:47:08 PM): "That monster of yours...such a lovely feeling to experience...but alas, to pursue my goal, I must dispose of it."
Y Ruler of Time (10:47:21 PM): "I activate Shrink, lowering your monster's attack by half."
Y Ruler of Time (10:47:36 PM): "So sorry, Mr. Blood Vice..."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:47:59 PM): Blood Vice shrinks in size, becoming smaller than Airman or his duelist. (1300)
Y Ruler of Time (10:48:04 PM): The fact that he's talking to a Duel Monster would probably be weirder if not for who his opponent is.
Y Ruler of Time (10:48:31 PM): A large tomato with a demonic face appears next, sticking its tongue out at Isabel.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:48:56 PM): "...Tch..."
Y Ruler of Time (10:48:56 PM): "I summon Mystic Tomato (1400/1100)," Kazimir declares, "and my monster will attack Blood Vice."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:49:30 PM): She looks down at her reverse card. ...I can't... Blood Vice is destroyed. (7900)
Viewtiful Rekk (10:49:51 PM): "GHRK...!" Isabel grunts out, stiffening as the leftover damage, small as it is, hits her.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:50:04 PM): Four fold....Jesus, he wasn't kidding...
Y Ruler of Time (10:50:44 PM): "Oh...I might've forgotten to mention..." Kazimir says thoughtfully, stroking his chin, "I've also upped the capabilities of the Solid Vision hologram system to maximum..."
Y Ruler of Time (10:51:13 PM): "Hm...I think we could have some fun with direct strikes, hm?"
TheGymRat38 (10:51:20 PM): "Things are starting to get interesting...but it still would have been funny to see her electrocuted."
Y Ruler of Time (10:51:34 PM): "I'll set two cards facedown, and end my turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:51:48 PM): "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:52:45 PM): "Elemental Hero Wildheart!" The tanned muscular hero appears, flexing for all to see. (1500/1600)
Viewtiful Rekk (10:53:01 PM): "Wildheart is unaffected by traps! Attack the Tomato!"
Y Ruler of Time (10:53:22 PM): The Tomato is cut in half.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:53:31 PM): "Wild Slash!" The warrior unsheathes his blade and brings it down on the grinning vegetable.
Y Ruler of Time (10:53:57 PM): (6100) Kazimir jerks slightly in response to the overthrow, then grins in contrast to Isabel's response to the slight damage
Y Ruler of Time (10:54:15 PM): "From my deck..." Kazimir declares, as Mystic Tomato's effect takes hold.
Y Ruler of Time (10:54:45 PM): In its place, a small man in furred plate armor and a white mask appears, holding two cleaving swords.
Y Ruler of Time (10:54:53 PM): "Masked Chopper (100/100) is summoned!"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:55:23 PM): "....Little guy, big punch."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:55:28 PM): "How fitting, Farkas.
TheGymRat38 (10:55:43 PM): "Oh? I wonder what that little guy can do."
Y Ruler of Time (10:58:38 PM): "For your information, Miss Marias, Masked Chopper is the key card to my strategy...the strategy that has made me the eighth-ranked duelist in this academy. Feel free to test your mettle against him."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:00:26 PM): "Eigth-ranked...then if I stomp you, my rank'll certainly shine for it!"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:00:50 PM): "Airman! Attack Masked Chopper! Air Cutter!" Another vortex is rained down on Kaz's monster.
Y Ruler of Time (11:01:44 PM): "Let's test your luck, Miss Marias," Kazimir states, as a box appears around his monster. "I activate Fairy Box."
Y Ruler of Time (11:02:06 PM): "And I believe I'll call...heads."
OnlineHost (11:02:11 PM): Y Ruler of Time rolled 1 2-sided die: 1
Viewtiful Rekk (11:02:47 PM): Isabel pales. "Shit."
TheGymRat38 (11:03:14 PM): "Meh its only another hundred damage Marias."
Y Ruler of Time (11:03:15 PM): "Ooh...I think my Masked Chopper is just a little bit stronger than that monster you foolishly attacked with..."
Y Ruler of Time (11:03:32 PM): Masked Chopper cleaves Airman's head off...and begins running towards Isabel.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:03:45 PM): Isabel closes her eyes and holds up her arms in defense.
Y Ruler of Time (11:04:17 PM): "And as you seem to know, but my friend Hayden does not..." Masked Chopper strikes a devastating blow with its cleavers to Isabel's arms.
Y Ruler of Time (11:04:31 PM): "Masked Chopper deals 2000 damage to the controller of a monster it destroys in battle."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:05:11 PM): Isabel lets out a loud scream as both strikes hit her dead-on. (5800)
TheGymRat38 (11:05:28 PM): "Hah, nice!"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:06:34 PM): Her legs buckle slightly as she leans over and slams a hand to the ground for support. "shit...shit....hurts...it hurts..."
Y Ruler of Time (11:06:43 PM): "Now," Kazimir said, smiling as he observed how much pain Isabel was experiencing. "That's two questions, I believe."
Y Ruler of Time (11:06:59 PM): "So first...tell me, what are your ideals, Miss Marias?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:07:14 PM): She sucks in a long deep breath and glares up at Kaz as she gets back to her feet.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:09:22 PM): "....I don't have ideals...those are for little kids who delude themselves out of reality with 'ideals'..."
TheGymRat38 (11:09:40 PM): "Che, wrong answer for this situation Marias."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:09:59 PM): "...I believe in becoming strong on my own...so strong that I won't need anybody...and so nobody will even think about crossing me."
Y Ruler of Time (11:10:32 PM): Kazimir frowns. "Strength...strength, I'm afraid, is not something that you can achieve on your own, Miss Marias."
Y Ruler of Time (11:10:53 PM): "But we can discuss that later."
Y Ruler of Time (11:11:08 PM): "I have another question for you. Why do you play Evil Heroes?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:11:58 PM): "Because all of my friends died, and I'm going to avenge them by using Evil Heroes to take over the Earth."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:12:07 PM): "Why the hell d'ya think I use them?!"
TheGymRat38 (11:12:26 PM): "I don't get if that answer was supposed to be funny or not..."
Y Ruler of Time (11:13:09 PM): Kazimir shrugs, "I use Masked Chopper because he's perfect for situations like this, Miss Marias. What other strategy could help me let others experience the beauty of so much pain?"
Y Ruler of Time (11:13:23 PM): "Forgive me for believing there was some greater purpose for your choice."
TheGymRat38 (11:13:27 PM): "An Inferno Deck?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:13:39 PM): She just grins.
Y Ruler of Time (11:13:45 PM): "Masked Chopper deals more damage. Also, shut up, Hayden."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:13:51 PM): "Fine...you really wanna know...I use them because of her."
Y Ruler of Time (11:13:58 PM): "...Her?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:14:07 PM): "Sorry. That's two."
Y Ruler of Time (11:14:30 PM): Kazimir chuckles. "Alright. Well, with my questions expended for now...you may continue your turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:15:01 PM): She smirks. "One reverse. End turn."
Y Ruler of Time (11:15:08 PM): "I draw."
Y Ruler of Time (11:15:38 PM): "I am feeling generous with my information today, so I will pay for Fairy Box." (5600)
Y Ruler of Time (11:15:43 PM): "One question for you."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:15:58 PM): She smirks. "Technically, that's a cost, not damage, but I'm not picky."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:16:35 PM): "Whatever the hell it is you're doing here....why me?"
Y Ruler of Time (11:17:01 PM): "Oh, that's easy," Kazimir rolls his eyes and jerks a thumb towards Hayden, "it was all his idea."
TheGymRat38 (11:17:11 PM): He waves. "Yo again!"
Y Ruler of Time (11:17:34 PM): "I knew you had violent tendencies and might be a good convert at some point, but it's become obvious to me that you really weren't ready."
Y Ruler of Time (11:18:06 PM): "However, since the process of converting is a one-way path, I had to go to great lengths to ensure that you were converted."
Y Ruler of Time (11:18:35 PM): "Hayden set the entire meeting up without my consent, but there's really nothing I could do about it."
TheGymRat38 (11:18:52 PM): Hayden grins. "It's because I'm an asshole!"
TheGymRat38 (11:18:58 PM): He winks at Isabel.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:19:05 PM): "Yeah, everybody knows that, dickweed."
Y Ruler of Time (11:19:11 PM): Kazimir rolls his eyes again. "Yes, that too."
Y Ruler of Time (11:19:48 PM): "Anyways..." he sets a card onto his Duel Disk, and a humanoid rocket bearing a sword and shield appears next to his Masked Chopper.
Y Ruler of Time (11:20:33 PM): "I summon Rocket Warrior (1500/1300)."
Y Ruler of Time (11:21:48 PM): "Next..." his Masked Chopper becomes engulfed in a golden aura, "I equip Masked Chopper with United We Stand (1700/1700)."
Y Ruler of Time (11:23:37 PM): "Masked Chopper, attack Wildman!"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:24:36 PM): "Trap card! Mirror Force!" She calls as a glowing barrier appears before Wildheart.
Y Ruler of Time (11:25:22 PM): Kazimir folds his arms over his chest. "How disheartening," he remarks, as his two monsters are blown apart.
Y Ruler of Time (11:25:43 PM): "I end my turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:25:56 PM): "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:26:49 PM): "Wildheart! Attack the defender!"
Y Ruler of Time (11:27:19 PM): "Since your monster is immune to traps, I'll just skip flipping for Fairy Box, shall I not?"
Y Ruler of Time (11:27:55 PM): A purple-robed mage is cut down, "Magician of Faith is destroyed, and I retrieve United We Stand from my graveyard."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:28:05 PM): "...Tch..." She mutters. "End turn...."
Y Ruler of Time (11:28:19 PM): "I draw..."
Y Ruler of Time (11:28:54 PM): "Hm...well, I think I'll skip paying for Fairy Box. One card facedown will do it for me. You turn again, Miss Marias..."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:29:37 PM): "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:31:07 PM): "....Wildheart, direct attack! Wild Slash!"
Y Ruler of Time (11:31:40 PM): "I'm afraid not, Miss Marias," Kazimir states, one of his set cards flipping up.
Y Ruler of Time (11:32:02 PM): "While I would love to talk more with you, logic deems that I preserve my life points as best I can. Therefore..."
Y Ruler of Time (11:32:22 PM): Four colorful little sheep hop out to defend him. "I activate Scapegoat, summoning four tokens to defend myself.”
Viewtiful Rekk (11:33:35 PM): "Frickin' stall..." Wildheart slices through one of the goats.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:33:39 PM): "End turn."
Y Ruler of Time (11:33:59 PM): "This, Miss Marias, is no stall."
Y Ruler of Time (11:34:03 PM): "I draw."
Y Ruler of Time (11:34:24 PM): "And then, I activate my facedown card, Call of the Haunted."
Y Ruler of Time (11:34:57 PM): "Rise up from the grave, Masked Chopper (100/100)!" The cleaver-bearing masked man reappears.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:35:10 PM): Her eyes shoot open. Shit...!
Y Ruler of Time (11:35:53 PM): "And you'll recall the card I retrieved with Magician of Faith, yes...?" he fingers the card, before sliding it into his Duel Disk. "I equip Masked Chopper with United We Stand."
Y Ruler of Time (11:36:28 PM): The Chopper glows brilliantly, the aura twice as large and bright as before as it draws power from the three remaining sheep tokens (3300/3300).
Y Ruler of Time (11:36:52 PM): "Masked Chopper...attack Wildman!"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:38:07 PM): The hero lets out a feeble cry as he's cut down. (4000)
Y Ruler of Time (11:38:45 PM): "That nets me another two questions," Kazimir declares, clenching a fist, "but I'll hold off until Masked Chopper has finished..."
Y Ruler of Time (11:39:10 PM): The little man snarls as he runs toward Isabel, both cleavers poised to strike.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:40:04 PM): Isabel lets out a scream as both cleavers hit her again. (2000) She drops to her knees, and uses both hands to prop her up this time.
Y Ruler of Time (11:40:47 PM): "Now, then, Miss Marias...four more divisions of one thousand means four questions for me..."
Y Ruler of Time (11:41:16 PM): He seems to ignore the fact that she's struggling not to collapse. "So, let's first begin with a clarification..."
Y Ruler of Time (11:41:36 PM): "Who is this woman you claim to use Evil Heroes because of? I must say, I'm quite curious."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:42:06 PM): "Isabel seems to busy trying to not keel over to answer Kazimir's question...
Y Ruler of Time (11:42:56 PM): "Now now, Miss Marias, you made the proposal, I expect you to keep to it...or is it just that you're too distracted by the truth that is unfolding before you?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:43:01 PM): "That would be me." A spiritual green-skinned woman in red says, appearing between the two students.
TheGymRat38 (11:44:01 PM): "Man, I know that stuff hurts but is she ever gonna answer? Even I'm curious at this point."
Y Ruler of Time (11:45:31 PM): "...Miss Marias?" Kazimir is totally ignorant of the woman's appearance. "Are you still with us?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:45:47 PM): The woman glares, and spins around...to see Isabel slowly getting back to her feet. The two stare at each other for a moment. "...Shall I dispose of them?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:46:07 PM): "Hell no." Isabel growls. "I'm gonna finish this up...."
Y Ruler of Time (11:46:46 PM): To Kazimir, this response doesn't make too much sense. "Hm...I think I'll switch my question, as nothing else really concerns me right now."
Y Ruler of Time (11:46:57 PM): "Tell me...how do you feel after that?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:46:58 PM): Isabel smirks. "No. I'll answer it."
Y Ruler of Time (11:47:21 PM): "Alright then, choose your order, so long as I get the response I want..."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:47:23 PM): "Especially since you answered something I was wondering myself..."
Y Ruler of Time (11:48:02 PM): "Ah, well, you know, in a way, that's all I'm trying to do."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:48:09 PM): "How do I feel? I'm dizzy, my whole body hurts like hell, I wanna puke and then sleep for about 3 days...."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:48:31 PM): She then gives a grin that's only slightly unhinged. "I also feel completely sure that I'm gonna beat the hell out of you!"
Y Ruler of Time (11:50:12 PM): Kazimir returns with a grin that seems calm, but also indicates that the person giving it is completely unhinged. "It seems that it's working, then. The pain is awakening the potential that rests within you..."
TheGymRat38 (11:51:25 PM): "Seems like it just pissed her off to me, but whatever."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:51:58 PM): "It's just making me wanna beat you that much more badly, so mission accomplished there!"
TheGymRat38 (11:52:26 PM): "See, pissed off."
Y Ruler of Time (11:52:31 PM): "Alright, I'm satisfied with that answer...if you're willing to discuss that 'her' that had such an influence on you, then feel free..."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:52:50 PM): "As for who 'she' is...I guess you can't see her...she's a Duel Spirit."
Y Ruler of Time (11:53:28 PM): The answer completely goes over Kazimir's head. "I've never heard of such a thing."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:53:39 PM): "Evil Hero Infernal Wing." She says, pointing at the spirit woman behind her, whose arms are crossed as she watches impassively.
TheGymRat38 (11:54:04 PM): Hayden blinks. "Yo Marias, I knew you were a bitch but I didn't realize you were a crazy bitch. There's nothing there."
TheGymRat38 (11:54:13 PM): "Hayden..."
TheGymRat38 (11:54:22 PM): "Che...that voice again..."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:54:56 PM): "Just show them your seal and then kill them both for goodness sake." "So not worth it, but thanks for the suggestion."
Y Ruler of Time (11:55:32 PM): "Hm...talking to something I cannot see nor here, speaking of it so casually..."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:55:41 PM): Isabel opens the slot for her Fusion Deck and flashes the card she mentioned. "The spirit that comes from this card, Farkas."
Y Ruler of Time (11:55:50 PM): 'Is it possible that she really can see something that we cannot?'
Y Ruler of Time (11:56:29 PM): 'Hm...perhaps I will need to inflict greater pain on myself...it appears I have a ways to go to become truly awakened if I am still blind to certain things...'
TheGymRat38 (11:56:50 PM): "Marias! Don't play with us! Cards are cards, that's all. Answer the question seriously!"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:56:52 PM): "As for how she's influenced me...that's one more question."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:57:30 PM): She laughs. "I pity you because you're an idiot, Zandel. She's just as real as you or I. You just have your head too far up your ass to see her."
Y Ruler of Time (11:57:36 PM): "I happen to have two more to spare, madame," Kazimir points out, "do go on, if you don't mind. You have truly captured my interest on this night."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:59:06 PM): "Certainly." she crosses her arms. "Me running an Evil Hero deck was pretty much already decided by the time I got into the game...because, y'see, she raised me."
Y Ruler of Time (11:59:57 PM): "...Raised you," Kazimir's looks of obsessed interest breaks into one of great cynicism for a moment.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:00:28 AM): "From a wee lass."
Y Ruler of Time (12:00:45 AM): "So this...'Duel Spirit'...is capable of touching and caring for a child? If that's the case, then why hasn't she made her appearance known by...well, you know, knocking something over?"
Y Ruler of Time (12:01:26 AM): "And yes, I'm willing to use up my last question for you to answer that."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:02:39 AM): "....Heh. Well..." She pulls the cross she'd shown Kazimir early off and holds it up...as an invisible hand picks it up. "She's probably best to answer that."
TheGymRat38 (12:03:03 AM): "What the fuck?"
Y Ruler of Time (12:03:26 AM): Kazimir's eyes widen with shock, but a manic grin sprouts on his face. "...Fascinating..."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:03:50 AM): As she puts the cross around her own neck, a woman that is most definitely Evil Hero Infernal Wing appears, arms crossed.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:04:36 AM): "Simple. You 3-genes-short-of-a-monkey humans aren't worth the time I'd use to speak to you, or the oxygen I'd use to burn you to ashes."
Y Ruler of Time (12:06:38 AM): "..." Kazimir turns to Hayden. "Hayden," he says, "I fear I may be experiencing a side-effect of the fumes. Am I hallucinating if I see Evil Hero Infernal Wing over there beside Miss Marias?"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:07:08 AM): "Aren't you listening, fool? I raised her. I'm not a hallucination.
TheGymRat38 (12:07:12 AM): "Not unless I accidentally got a whiff of the fumes when I was forcing her to smell it. Because I see her too."
TheGymRat38 (12:07:36 AM): "Hayden..."
TheGymRat38 (12:07:44 AM): "Oh shut the fuck up! God that's annoying!"
Y Ruler of Time (12:08:08 AM): "...Is something wrong, Hayden? Besides, well..." he glances out of the corner of his eye at Infernal Wing.
TheGymRat38 (12:08:58 AM): "Doesn't matter, nothing. Just this ringing in my head since my duel with Alex." He waves it off.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:09:11 AM): "It's a spirit, boy."
TheGymRat38 (12:09:26 AM): "What did you say fire girl?"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:09:27 AM): "Not a very bright one, if she's taken a shine to something as worthless as you."
Y Ruler of Time (12:09:30 AM): "...Something very odd is happening, Hayden," Kazimir says.
TheGymRat38 (12:09:38 AM): "I hadn't noticed. Really."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:09:40 AM): "...."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:10:24 AM): A blue fireball appears in her hand.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:11:18 AM): "I have a name, you guttersnipe. Call me 'Fire Girl' again, and the definition you have of 'pain' here will be seen for how woefully weak it is."
Y Ruler of Time (12:11:42 AM): "I believe, however, that such a thing will have to be addressed at a later time. Hayden."
TheGymRat38 (12:12:16 AM): "Che...just kick her ass. Fire Bitch up there is as bitchy as Marias."
Y Ruler of Time (12:12:33 AM): His arm swings in an arc, and suddenly a significantly large needle is soaring through the air at the necklace around Infernal Wing's neck.
Y Ruler of Time (12:12:41 AM): "Catch the cross, if you will."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:13:03 AM): "Little....!" She rears back an arm to launch the fireball. The necklace is pierced by Kaz's needle, and Isabel snatches the cross out of the air.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:13:29 AM): "She won't get off my case until I beat you into next week now, Zandel." Isabel says and pockets the cross.
Y Ruler of Time (12:14:32 AM): "My my, Miss Marias," Kazimir says, smirking, "it seems that Hayden made the right choice in alerting you to me...You've just opened my eyes to a whole new world of possibilities..."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:14:42 AM): Isabel laughs.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:14:53 AM): "You'd have to be pretty damn stupid to miss this world, even if you're blind."
Y Ruler of Time (12:15:13 AM): He straightens, looking over the field which has been thrust out of his attention in the past couple minutes.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:15:15 AM): "Now. That's four questions. Are you done with your turn, or what?"
Y Ruler of Time (12:15:18 AM): "I end my turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:15:21 AM): "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:17:43 AM): She smirks. "Instant Magic - Emergency Provisions!"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:18:28 AM): "I sacrifice my reverse card to gain 1000 life points!" (3000)
Y Ruler of Time (12:18:30 AM): Kazimir blinks. "If I'm not mistaken," he says, “that's only a thousand life points. I believe you'll need a little more to survive a direct strike by Masked Chopper."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:19:30 AM): "I just wanted to get my field clear, Farkas. Elemental Hero Bubble Soldier, in defense!"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:20:02 AM): A slightly taller Bubbleman, with a small rifle in his hands appears in a defensive position. (800/1200)
Y Ruler of Time (12:20:30 AM): "Oh? And what's this, then?"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:22:36 AM): "When Bubble Soldier is summoned as the only card on my field, and I have at least 3 'HERO' cards in my grave, during my end phase I draw two cards!" She says, snapping two cards off her deck. "End turn."
Y Ruler of Time (12:22:54 AM): "Very well, then I'll draw to start my turn..."
Y Ruler of Time (12:23:58 AM): "Masked Chopper, destroy Bubble Soldier!"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:24:09 AM): Bubble Soldier lets out a cry as he's destroyed.
Y Ruler of Time (12:24:42 AM): "One step closer, Miss Marias...Masked Chopper's effect!" The cleavers come down again on the Red duelist.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:25:04 AM): Isabel screams out again as she's stricken twice. (1000)
Y Ruler of Time (12:26:33 AM): "Miss Marias...you've taken as much damage as a duelist can during a duel without gaining life points back...I've set the impact of the holograms to maximum, administered sense-enhancing chemicals..."
Y Ruler of Time (12:27:15 AM): "I have provided you with a sea of pain within which you can immerse yourself...now give in, let the pain consume you, make you what you are meant to be!"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:28:45 AM): Isabel's head hangs slightly as her legs shake, probably having been ready to give out for a while now.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:28:57 AM): "...That's...not a question, Farkas..." She says, looking up.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:29:48 AM): "I've got a tip for you....this whole time, you've been trying to 'enlighten' me...."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:29:56 AM): "There's no such thing as 'enlightenment'."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:30:30 AM): "Humans all suck, and if anybody thinks they're above that, they're a tool."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:31:48 AM): "And as for your precious 'pain'....pain is an enemy to be beaten in order to surpass one's limits...it's not the key to anything, you delusional piece of crap."
Y Ruler of Time (12:32:01 AM): "You, Miss Marias," Kazimir says with a sigh, "are a troublesome little woman who refuses to see the truth which pounds at her eyelids, begging to be seen."
Y Ruler of Time (12:33:18 AM): Slowly, he inserts a finger from his left hand into his right glove, and uses it to peel the piece of clothing away.
TheGymRat38 (12:33:52 AM): "Heh, personally I think Kaz is delusional as well Marias. But what you don't see is his strength. He won't be stopped by petty speeches from a bitch like you. Sorry Marias...you're going to lose."
Y Ruler of Time (12:33:52 AM): He holds up the hand and spreads his fingers, letting Isabel see that it is covered, almost mangled, by scars.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:34:33 AM): Isabel's eyebrows raise up slightly.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:34:39 AM): "...Th' hell happened to you?"
Y Ruler of Time (12:35:01 AM): He repeats the process with his left hand. "You do not understand the lengths to which I have gone to find the truth, track it down so that I may hold it up before others..."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:35:23 AM): "....You did that to yourself?" She asks incredulously.
Y Ruler of Time (12:35:34 AM): He grips the edge of his cloak and pulls it off, throwing it away. Following this, he swiftly unbuttons his shirt, and casts it onto the ground.
Y Ruler of Time (12:36:36 AM): His entire torso is covered. Burn marks. Scars from knives. From screws. From whips. Glass shards. The pale tone to his face is, apparently, the least common shade of his skin there is.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:37:02 AM): "..." Isabel slowly brings a hand over her mouth.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:37:48 AM): "You...d-did that all to yourself....?" She seems unnerved for the first time all night.
Y Ruler of Time (12:37:58 AM): "Pain...is not an enemy," he states, his eyes seeming to take on a red tint.
Y Ruler of Time (12:38:51 AM): "Pain...is the path...suffering...the road...To be walked. For those who walk the path, and see their journey through to the end...They become stronger."
TheGymRat38 (12:39:14 AM): Hayden's eyes light up and he smirks viciously. "This is the strength, the guts, the ferocious spirit...of the only man I've ever respected!"
TheGymRat38 (12:39:43 AM): He levels his left hand at Isabel, pointing at her forehead with his fingers like a gun. "Marias...against his strength, you're nothing!"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:40:27 AM): "...."
Y Ruler of Time (12:40:30 AM): "My body..." he looks down at himself, and sighs heavily, "if only I had known..."
Y Ruler of Time (12:41:02 AM): "The methods I used, are ones that I regret...I found the way, I was so happy...but I must hide these from the world for fear of frightening others away."
Y Ruler of Time (12:41:28 AM): "Only a few years ago did I discover, and following that, master, methods of inflicting pain without leaving such disgusting side-effects."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:43:09 AM): "...." Isabel moves her hand.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:44:09 AM): "...I don't want to be here anymore...."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:44:16 AM): "End your turn, Farkas...."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:45:11 AM): "I just want to finish this duel and leave this place..."
Y Ruler of Time (12:45:53 AM): Kazimir nods. "It is ended. You may take your turn, Isabel...but you will begin your walk down the path by the time I have finished with you. Even if I have to keep you here, and duel you again and again..."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:46:09 AM): "....Draw."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:49:48 AM): She looks at the reverse. "...If that's a trap...I probably lose..."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:50:31 AM): She grabs her drawn card. "I activate the spell card...Dark Calling!"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:51:23 AM): "This lets me remove monsters from my hand or graveyard from play in order to summon an Evil Hero, bypassing their summoning restriction!"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:51:47 AM): "I remove Wildheart and Malicious Edge from my graveyard..."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:52:18 AM): "Evil Hero - BERSERK EDGE!" (2600/2300)
Y Ruler of Time (12:53:36 AM): "My my...a monster that can attack all monsters on my field, and deal damage through defense the whole way..."
Y Ruler of Time (12:53:52 AM): "That would be well more than enough to finish me, wouldn't it?"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:54:29 AM): "Damn straight it would! And Dark Fusion prevents him from being hit by targeting effects this turn!"
TheGymRat38 (12:54:51 AM): "Heh. This is why Marias is strong enough to be a Blue."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:55:54 AM): She points at Kazimir's field. "Go, Ultimate Berserk Rampage!"
Y Ruler of Time (12:56:16 AM): "I see," Kazimir sighs, "you really do have potential...it's a shame you weren't more willing to walk the path."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:56:21 AM): Berserker Edge lets out a loud battlecry before pulling out two scimitars and dashing at Kaz's field.
Y Ruler of Time (12:57:07 AM): "I activate..." his set card flips up, and a shimmering gold barrier materializes between Kazimir and his monsters, "Spirit Barrier."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:57:26 AM): "Dammit!"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:57:58 AM): Berserker Edge tears through all the goats and then tears the Masked Chopper a new one.
Y Ruler of Time (12:59:52 AM): "Hm...Spirit Barrier can't protect me from that last one, of course..." The extra damage drives into Kazimir, and he stumbles as it hits him (3900).
Y Ruler of Time (1:00:22 AM): "Oh my...that's two more questions, isn't it? Well...anything you'd like to ask me before I end our little dance, Miss Marias?"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:01:06 AM): "...."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:01:20 AM): "Did you do all of those things to yourself...?"
Y Ruler of Time (1:01:55 AM): Kazimir waves an arm across his chest. "With my own two hands."
Y Ruler of Time (1:02:24 AM): "...Although at one point I had to leave a machine running an automatic."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:02:31 AM): "..."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:02:41 AM): "What the hell did your parents do to you?"
Y Ruler of Time (1:03:32 AM): The question makes Kazimir laugh out loud, and he grips his sides as if the act hurts him more than anything else that's happened physically to him this night.
Y Ruler of Time (1:04:04 AM): Eventually he recovers, wipes away a tear, and says, with a straight face. "They raised me to be a good Christian boy."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:04:54 AM): She glares at him. "Then why the hell aren't you?"
Y Ruler of Time (1:05:51 AM): "Tchtchtch..." he wags a finger at her, "you were strict about too many questions, so I'll return the favor. When I'm done with you, though, you can ask me all the questions you want..."
Y Ruler of Time (1:08:17 AM): "So...anything else before you end your turn?"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:08:24 AM): "..." She snorts, her attitude seemingly revived. "Whatever. I end my turn."
Y Ruler of Time (1:08:37 AM): "Excellent...draw."
Y Ruler of Time (1:09:10 AM): He chuckles, "The truly wonderful thing about having Masked Chopper as an ace card..." he says, placing a card on his Duel Disk.
Y Ruler of Time (1:09:59 AM): Twin cleavers appear, preceding their bearer (100/100). "...is that it's so easy to summon one right after the other."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:10:13 AM): "...2500 points weaker than my monster."
Y Ruler of Time (1:10:41 AM): Kazimir holds up one of the two remaining cards in his hand. "Oh?"
Y Ruler of Time (1:11:09 AM): Waves of power drain out of Berserker Edge, and Masked Chopper consumes them, growing more powerful.
Viewtiful Rekk (1:11:25 AM): "Wh-what the hell?!"
Y Ruler of Time (1:11:42 AM): "Riryoku drains your monster of half its attack and defense, and gives that power to mine."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:12:17 AM): "...No...."
Y Ruler of Time (1:12:44 AM): "I wonder...will this be the dose that decides it, or will I need to focus on you more...?"
Y Ruler of Time (1:13:03 AM): Masked Chopper runs forward and chops Berserker Edge, before moving on to Isabel.
Y Ruler of Time (1:14:00 AM): "Isabel Marias...I will see to it personally...that you join the Order of Holy Suffering!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:14:50 AM): Isabel says nothing as she's raked one last time by the Chopper's cleavers, before dropping to her knees. (0000)
Viewtiful Rekk (1:15:57 AM): "G-go to hell...." She says weakly.
Y Ruler of Time (1:16:48 AM): "I stopped believing in Hell a long time ago, Miss Marias," he quips, turning to retrieve his clothing.
Y Ruler of Time (1:17:31 AM): "Hayden," he calls, "Miss Marias is not to leave this building until I have finished converting her. See to it that she is properly detained...and get me that cross!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:18:39 AM): Her eyes widen. "No." She hisses out, pulling the cross out of her pocket and clutching it tightly. "This is mine..."
TheGymRat38 (1:19:27 AM): Hayden chuckles and walks towards her weakened form. Without saying a word he kicks her in the gut.
Viewtiful Rekk (1:20:09 AM): "Ghuck!" She sputters out as she is easily kicked to the floor.
TheGymRat38 (1:20:41 AM): He bends down and reaches for the cross, moving to pry it from her fingers.
Viewtiful Rekk (1:25:01 AM): She coughs weakly, but still clutches the cross. "No...this is mine..." She just repeats.
Y Ruler of Time (1:25:39 AM): Kazimir approaches, shirt half-buttoned and the rest of his clothes clutched in his left hand.
Y Ruler of Time (1:26:11 AM): "Oh, for the love of agony..." he mutters, noticing Isabel's stubbornness, "some people and their material possessions..."
TheGymRat38 (1:26:22 AM): Rolling his eyes he aims a punch at her nose, while still trying to pry the cross away.
Y Ruler of Time (1:26:45 AM): He bends down and strikes a nerve in Isabel's elbow to numb it.
Viewtiful Rekk (1:27:03 AM): Being stricken twice over, Isabel slums downwards, her grip becoming limp.
TheGymRat38 (1:27:37 AM): Hayden smirks and pulls the cross away. "And there it is."
Y Ruler of Time (1:27:56 AM): Kazimir takes the cross from Hayden's hand. "This is the method which the Infernal Wing uses to become tangible to us."
TheGymRat38 (1:28:40 AM): "Think there are other people who know about these spirits?"
Y Ruler of Time (1:28:42 AM): "Therefore, if we ensure that she cannot reach it..." he clutches it tightly in his hand, "she cannot interfere."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:29:06 AM): She coughs, and looks up. "...Don't tell Ed..." She mutters, before her eyes slide shut.
Y Ruler of Time (1:29:11 AM): Kazimir blinks at the comment. "Yes," he finally says, eying Hayden strangely.
Y Ruler of Time (1:29:45 AM): "Miss Marias must indeed be a special person...but the way the Infernal Wing was talking...no...she is not unique."
TheGymRat38 (1:30:20 AM): Hayden crosses his arms. "She said to me...no, it doesn't matter."
Y Ruler of Time (1:30:22 AM): "Therefore, there may be others, even among the students, who could see and hear her...Therefore..."
Y Ruler of Time (1:30:45 AM): He turned away, sweeping his eyes around the room. "...We must take precaution."
TheGymRat38 (1:31:19 AM): The Austrian nodded, and then grinned darkly. "We can use it to our advantage though. I'm sure we can find a way. She seemed pretty attached to that spirit."
Y Ruler of Time (1:31:51 AM): He clears his throat, and speaks loudly. "Although it would pain me to truly do so, I promise this, Infernal Wing."
Y Ruler of Time (1:32:09 AM): "Should anyone outside my Order somehow become alerted of Miss Marias's presence here...."
Y Ruler of Time (1:32:23 AM): "I cannot ensure the preservation of her life."
TheGymRat38 (1:33:00 AM): Something seems to squirm inside of Hayden's gut at those words.
Viewtiful Rekk (1:33:12 AM): Not that either will be able to see it, but Infernal Wing is glaring down at Kazimir.
TheGymRat38 (1:33:12 AM): "If it comes to that...if it does...I'll do it. You don't have to stain your hands."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:33:40 AM): A sharp wave of pressure shoots from her and smacks Kazimir right on.
TheGymRat38 (1:33:47 AM): That thing inside Hayden seems to be moving more frantically than ever. And on the inside a sadistic grin spreads across his features.
TheGymRat38 (1:33:56 AM): "Murder...I wonder...what would that be like?"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:34:25 AM): "If you take this girl's life...nothing will prepare you for what will be visited on you."
Y Ruler of Time (1:35:33 AM): Kazimir stumbles backwards, and in his surprise falls over. "...Hm..."
Y Ruler of Time (1:36:10 AM): "Something tells me we are fortunate that the Infernal Wing cannot easily become tangible..."
Y Ruler of Time (1:36:51 AM): "I do wish I hadn't had to make that threat, however...But it is necessary to preserve our secrecy."
TheGymRat38 (1:37:25 AM): "Whatever is necessary."
Y Ruler of Time (1:37:27 AM): 'I also dislike lying out of my ass.'
Y Ruler of Time (1:37:59 AM): 'Killing for secrecy...how barbaric! To think such an idea even occurred to me!'
Y Ruler of Time (1:38:45 AM): "Hayden, tie her up and get to your dorm."
Y Ruler of Time (1:38:54 AM): "We have classes tomorrow, after all..."
Y Ruler of Time (1:39:00 AM): "We need our rest."
TheGymRat38 (1:39:10 AM): "We could just break her legs."
Y Ruler of Time (1:39:45 AM): "How many times must I tell you? No permanent damage to the converts."
