Viewtiful Rekk (12:36:01 AM): ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Viewtiful Rekk (12:36:13 AM): Amado kicks open the door to the Obelisk male dorm.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:36:54 AM): "ALRIGHT, BLUE BOYS, I'M HERE TO KICK ASS AND PLAY CARD GAMES!"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:37:00 AM): "AND I'M ALL OUT OF CARDS!"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:37:19 AM): "...except, y'know, for my deck." He holds up said deck. "...and my other deck." He holds that up too.
Y Ruler of Time (12:37:24 AM): "Put the door back up, Amado,:" Alex walks by.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:37:38 AM): Amado grabs Alex.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:37:43 AM): "Where's the Kaiser?!"
Y Ruler of Time (12:38:00 AM): "I dunno. Probably somewhere brooding."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:38:09 AM): "Well help me find him!"
Y Ruler of Time (12:38:19 AM): "Um...no."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:38:22 AM): "..."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:38:29 AM): "The Kaiser is the best duelist here."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:38:33 AM): "You're second best."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:38:40 AM): "If I can't find him, do the math."
Y Ruler of Time (12:38:57 AM): "I could just ignore you. Which he probably will anyway."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:39:10 AM): "He can't ignore me forever! I'm very annoying!"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:39:21 AM): "Just ask Reiko!"
Y Ruler of Time (12:40:36 AM): "...Try checking his room. Y'know, the first place you'd typically look to find someone."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:41:01 AM): "Tried that."
Y Ruler of Time (12:41:26 AM): "...He goes out to work out a lot."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:43:15 AM): "...fine." Amado grabs Alex. "You're helping me find him then!"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:43:23 AM): He then runs out of the dorm.
Y Ruler of Time (12:43:47 AM): "Nononononowaaaiiiiiiiiiiittt!"
Y Ruler of Time (12:43:52 AM): Alex digs in his heels.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:44:03 AM): Amado fires a blast of wind at his feet.
Y Ruler of Time (12:44:31 AM): "Shiiiiiit!"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:44:41 AM): "...why do people keep stealing my boyfriend whenever I turn my back..." Anna mutters as she watches this.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:46:04 AM): Five minutes later
Viewtiful Rekk (12:46:12 AM): "HEY LOOK, I SEE HIM ON THE BEACH!" Amado says....
Viewtiful Rekk (12:46:18 AM): From several hundred feet in the air.
Y Ruler of Time (12:46:33 AM): "LEMMEDOWNLEMMEDOWNLEMMEDOWNDAMNIT!"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:46:45 AM): "DON'T WORRY, I'VE BEEN PRACTICING MY LANDINGS!"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:47:36 AM): Amado fires several controlled bursts of wind, sending them in the direction of the beach.
Y Ruler of Time (12:48:05 AM): "Don'twannadiedon'twannadiedon'twannadie..."
Polk Kitsune (12:48:13 AM): Down on the beach, the Kaiser was in the water up to his knees, practicing the standard Yoga positions.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:48:23 AM): "NOW ALL I HAVE TO DO IS MAKE A CUSHION FOR US TO LAND ON, AND WE'LL BE FINE!" He points his hand down...and a cushion of wind explodes outwards, to the left of where they were aiming.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:48:24 AM): Thud.
Y Ruler of Time (12:48:58 AM): "....oooooow..."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:49:18 AM): He pulls his head and spits out sand. "Okay...gotta remember to compensate for that..."
Polk Kitsune (12:49:34 AM): Bruce's eyebrow twitched. "..."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:50:24 AM): He looked up. "Oh hi, Kaiser!"
Y Ruler of Time (12:51:09 AM): "...Hate magic...except...when my girlfriend...uses it..."
Polk Kitsune (12:51:17 AM): "... Good afternoon, Amado." He muttered with a bit of annoyance as he got up.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:52:22 AM): Amado immediately got to his feet and pointed at Bruce
Viewtiful Rekk (12:52:27 AM): "I challenge you to a duel, Kaiser!"
Polk Kitsune (12:52:38 AM): He looked at Alex, eyebrow raised. "So you're the poor soul Baka-do dragged this time..."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:52:50 AM): "Hey! That's Bakaichi to you!"
Polk Kitsune (12:53:04 AM): He gave a snort. "You never give up, do you?"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:53:26 AM): Amado grinned. "If I'm gonna become Kaiser myself, how can I give up?"
Y Ruler of Time (12:54:56 AM): Somewhere else on the island, Riku looks up. "...Weird."
Polk Kitsune (12:55:11 AM): With a grunt, he started his way up to the beach. "Yet you can't understand the matter of climbing up the ladder..."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:55:45 AM): "Everytime I challenge Alex, he tases me."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:55:49 AM): "Anna makes Alex tase me."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:56:06 AM): "FUCK KUDASAI AND ADONIS!"
Y Ruler of Time (12:56:15 AM): "I feel like someone just acknowledged the nickname I gave them."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:57:27 AM): "So are you accepting my challenge or what?!"
Polk Kitsune (12:58:39 AM): He snorted. "Maybe I should start a similar punishment."
Polk Kitsune (12:59:46 AM): He reached into his coat, and pulled out his duel disk. "One more time... If you lose, it's another week before the next one."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:00:18 AM): "That's fine!" Amado grabbed his deck from its box on his side.
Viewtiful Rekk (1:00:18 AM): "'Cause this time...I ain't gonna lose!" He grins.
Polk Kitsune (1:01:14 AM): "Big word... Cocky as always." He slides the deck in.
Polk Kitsune (1:01:22 AM): "Let's see if you live up to it."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:01:27 AM): He places his deck into his disk.
Viewtiful Rekk (1:01:30 AM): "Duel!" (8000)
Polk Kitsune (1:01:36 AM): "DUEL!
Polk Kitsune (1:02:53 AM): "I'll start! Draw!"
Polk Kitsune (1:03:48 AM): "... I'll lay one defender, and that will end my turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:04:25 AM): "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:04:55 AM): Amado grins. "You ready to see my new deck, Kaiser!?"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:05:00 AM): "Field Spell - Rising Air Current!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:05:22 AM): The beach fades away and the two duelists are standing on the clouds.
Polk Kitsune (1:05:34 AM): "Wind monsters..."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:06:25 AM): "Summon Flying Kamikiri #1!" A green bug with two huge orange eyes appears. (1900/500)
Viewtiful Rekk (1:06:53 AM): "And then the spell card Summon Storm! By paying 800 life points..." (7200) "I can Special Summon a level 4 or lower WIND-Attribute monster from my hand!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:08:10 AM): "Updraft Gryphon!" A green-skinned beast with the body of a lion and the head of an eagle appears. (2100/1000)
Viewtiful Rekk (1:08:27 AM): "Gryphon! Attack the set!" The Gryphon leaps up and flies at Bruce's set monster.
Polk Kitsune (1:09:17 AM): As the Gryphon shot down, a huge muscled man leaped up, grabbing the beast by the neck. "Legendary Jujitsu Master..."
Polk Kitsune (1:09:35 AM): "Your Gryphon will return to the top of your deck."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:10:26 AM): "Ngh..." The Gryphon lets out a squawk and flies back to Amado's deck.
Polk Kitsune (1:10:41 AM): "Of course, my monster dies in the process..."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:10:53 AM): "Kamikiri, direct attack! Sonic Wing!"
Polk Kitsune (1:11:11 AM): (6100) The kaiser didn't even budge under the attack.
Viewtiful Rekk (1:11:12 AM): The insect flaps its wings incredibly fast, sending sound waves at Bruce.
Viewtiful Rekk (1:11:21 AM): "Set one reverse card...end turn."
Polk Kitsune (1:11:27 AM): "Draw!"
Polk Kitsune (1:11:54 AM): "I will set one defender... And that will end my turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:12:06 AM): "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:12:26 AM): Amado immediately slaps the card down. "Again! Updraft Gryphon!" (2100/1000)
Viewtiful Rekk (1:13:37 AM): "Let's try this again...Gryphon! The set!"
Polk Kitsune (1:14:04 AM): "GYAAHHH~!" A black jar popped out, screechign before it died. "Morphing Jar..."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:14:51 AM): Amado frowns and discards 1 before drawing five.
Polk Kitsune (1:15:28 AM): He tossed the Guardian Sphinx, Golem Sentry, Moai Interceptor cannons, and Legendary Jujitsu Master, before drawing five new cards.
Viewtiful Rekk (1:16:08 AM): He's setting up for Megarock...
Viewtiful Rekk (1:16:20 AM): "Kamikiri, again! Sonic Wing!"
Polk Kitsune (1:16:52 AM): (4200) Once more, the Kaiser was unmoved.
Viewtiful Rekk (1:17:56 AM): "...Set two cards face down and end turn!"
Polk Kitsune (1:18:06 AM): "Draw!"
Polk Kitsune (1:19:03 AM): "Up until now, that field card is the only reason you're going forward with your monsters."
Polk Kitsune (1:19:08 AM): "Heavy Storm!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:19:22 AM): "Ngh...!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:19:47 AM): Two copies of Spiritual Wind Art - Miyabi are blown away, as well as Mystical Space Tyhpoon.
Viewtiful Rekk (1:19:50 AM): "D-dammit..."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:20:08 AM): And the two are, once again, standing on the beach.
Y Ruler of Time (1:20:19 AM): "Well you set so many cards down, what'd you expect?
Polk Kitsune (1:20:20 AM): "Then... One defender, along with one facedown card."
Polk Kitsune (1:23:24 AM): "And I end my turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:23:29 AM): "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:25:31 AM): Amado grins. "You made a mistake, Kaiser..."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:26:18 AM): "You should've destroyed my monsters!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:27:28 AM): "Tuner Monster - Soldier of Mist Valley!" A winged man with two blades in his hands appears. (1700/300)
Polk Kitsune (1:29:31 AM): "..."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:29:50 AM): "I'm sure you know what's comin' now!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:30:23 AM): "Level 4 Soldier of Mist Valley! Level 4 Updraft Gryphon, TUNING!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:31:44 AM): Soldier of Mist Valley glows and scatters. Three green rings form around Updraft Gryphon.
Viewtiful Rekk (1:32:45 AM): "Everything is wind beneath the dragon's wings! All defenses fall before the dragon's claws!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:33:02 AM): Light shoots through the rings. "SYNCHRO SUMMON! FLY, RED DAEMON'S DRAGON!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:33:50 AM): When the light clears, a massive red and black, almost demonic dragon appears on Amado's field and lets out a roar. (3000/2000)
Polk Kitsune (1:34:17 AM): Bruce let out a snort.
Viewtiful Rekk (1:35:04 AM): "And I'm not done yet! Sacrifice Flying Kamikiri #1!" The insect vanishes.
Viewtiful Rekk (1:35:08 AM): "Special Summon - Pantera!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:36:06 AM): A samurai wearing a green set of robes appears, sword at his side. (1600/1000)
Viewtiful Rekk (1:36:48 AM): "Red Daemon's! Attack his set monster!"
Polk Kitsune (1:37:36 AM): Bruce snorted as once more a muscled man leaped out at the dragon. "Legendary Jujitsu Master..."
Polk Kitsune (1:39:06 AM): "My monster will return your dragon from where he came..."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:39:40 AM): "...dammit..." Amado growls as Red Daemon's vanishes.
Polk Kitsune (1:39:42 AM): He pressed a button on his duel-disk. "Activate trap card."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:39:48 AM): "Eh?!"
Polk Kitsune (1:39:57 AM): "The Grave of Enkindling."
Polk Kitsune (1:40:22 AM): I can only activate this when a monster of mine is destroyed in battle."
Polk Kitsune (1:40:47 AM): "We both select one monster from our respective graveyards, and special summon them in defense positions."
Polk Kitsune (1:41:04 AM): "Those monsters must remain in defense position as long as they remain face-up."
Polk Kitsune (1:41:29 AM): He pulled a card out of his graveyard. "I summon the Guardian Sphinx..."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:41:31 AM): Amado frowns.
Polk Kitsune (1:41:53 AM): "You were so busy thinking about your attack, you didn't even considered I wanted you to kill my monster."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:42:02 AM): "G-Guardian Sphinx?!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:42:40 AM): He looks at his grave.
Viewtiful Rekk (1:42:45 AM): "...Soldier of Mist Valley!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:42:55 AM): The soldier appears again, on one knee. (1700/300)
Hinoryu8 (1:45:19 AM): "You're kinda getting your ass beat, aren't you, Amadobastard?" Ryuuji was, like ninja, standing a ways off from the duel, torso heavily bandaged still.
Viewtiful Rekk (1:45:54 AM): "Shut the hell up, Ryuuji-bastard!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:46:01 AM): "...End turn."
Polk Kitsune (1:46:12 AM): "Draw!"
Hinoryu8 (1:47:05 AM): "I give you Red and you just let it get bounced so easily..." He sighed, then waited to watch.
Polk Kitsune (1:47:23 AM): "I flip the Guardian Sphinx facedown..."
Polk Kitsune (1:49:02 AM): "And summon the Guardian Statue..."
Polk Kitsune (1:49:43 AM): "The statue will attack your tuner monster."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:50:17 AM): The tuner is wiped out. "Dammit..."
Polk Kitsune (1:51:04 AM): "I'll then flip the statue facedown... And end my turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:51:09 AM): "Draw..."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:51:43 AM): He grimaces. "Destroy the Guardian Statue..."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:51:56 AM): Pantera dashes forward, and unsheathes his sword, striking the face down monster at the same time.
Polk Kitsune (1:52:07 AM): "..."
Polk Kitsune (1:52:20 AM): "It dies."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:52:31 AM): "End turn..."
Polk Kitsune (1:52:50 AM): "Draw!"
Polk Kitsune (1:53:20 AM): "I flip summon the Guardian Sphinx. Your Pantera will return to your hand."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:54:08 AM): The samurai vanishes and one more card appears in Amado's hand.
Polk Kitsune (1:54:17 AM): "Along with it, I will summon the Guardian Statue."
Polk Kitsune (1:54:31 AM): "Both of them will attack you directly."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:55:19 AM): "NGH...!" (5500)
Viewtiful Rekk (1:55:22 AM): "D-dammit..."
Polk Kitsune (1:55:39 AM): "And both of them will retire to their facedown position."
Polk Kitsune (1:55:52 AM): "That will end my turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:56:30 AM): "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:58:29 AM): "...You'll just keep bouncing my cards...so it doesn't matter if I summon anything."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:58:33 AM): "End turn."
Polk Kitsune (1:58:44 AM): "Draw!"
Hinoryu8 (1:58:58 AM): "So this is the Kaiser's deck, huh?"
Polk Kitsune (1:59:02 AM): "You already know it... but you keep coming back for more."
Polk Kitsune (1:59:15 AM): "I summon the Grave Ohja to the field."
Hinoryu8 (1:59:38 AM): "Isn't it kinda, well... boring?"
Polk Kitsune (2:00:09 AM): "I flip summon the Guardian Sphinx and Guardian Statue... Which will deal 600 direct damage to you."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:00:39 AM): (4900)
Polk Kitsune (2:01:21 AM): "Dueling isn't meant to be entertaining... Otherwise, you'd see all the pro duelists wearing costumes, and doing exhibition matches for no reasons..."
Hinoryu8 (2:01:55 AM): "It's a game, how is it not meant to be entertaining?"
Polk Kitsune (2:02:50 AM): "If you haven't realized it up to now, then you haven't earned your place in Duel Academy."
Polk Kitsune (2:02:57 AM): "Dueling is more than just a game."
Polk Kitsune (2:03:14 AM): "I play Premature Burial."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:03:16 AM): "Hey, don't talk down to my friend, Kaiser!"
Hinoryu8 (2:03:32 AM): "Hey, Amadobastard. It might be rude, but can I get next game with this guy?"
Polk Kitsune (2:03:36 AM): (3400) "I special summon the Moai Interception cannons."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:04:01 AM): "What?! No!
Polk Kitsune (2:04:09 AM): "And to finish this... Shield and Sword."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:04:16 AM): "Wait, WHAT?!"
Polk Kitsune (2:05:21 AM): All the rock monsters seemed to shift, their rock formations shifting, sharper, more aggressive. Even the Sphinx seemed to grow feral.
Polk Kitsune (2:05:34 AM): "All of their defense and attacks are switched."
Hinoryu8 (2:06:02 AM): "... Yeah, it's boring like this."
Polk Kitsune (2:06:06 AM): (2000, 1400, 1500, 2400) "Now, my monsters, attack directly!"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:06:22 AM): "NGH...!" Amado is hit by all of the attacks, and knocked down on to the sand.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:06:27 AM): "D-dammit...." (0000)
Polk Kitsune (2:07:17 AM): "And that's how it ends."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:07:20 AM): He slams a fist into the sand.
Hinoryu8 (2:07:26 AM): (( Sleep well. ))
Viewtiful Rekk (2:07:28 AM): Dammit...even with Pantera and Red Daemon's...!
Hinoryu8 (2:08:11 AM): "Where was the 'duel' in that?"
Polk Kitsune (2:09:27 AM): Bruce stepped toward Amado, putting his deck back together. "Once more, I take you down..."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:10:54 AM): Amado looks up at him. "...Yeah. Gonna tell me some more about how I 'lack focus' or some shit like that?"
Polk Kitsune (2:11:37 AM): "No... I know it will only fall on deaf ears." He grabbed Amado by the shoulder, lifted him up...
Polk Kitsune (2:12:19 AM): And pushed him right back down, the sand right under him melting like quicksand as the boy was plunged into the ground.
Hinoryu8 (2:12:40 AM): "Oi, what the hell are you doing?!"
Polk Kitsune (2:13:02 AM): When it all settled, the sand was back to normal, and Amado was buried into the sand. "One more week, I suppose."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:13:03 AM): "A-aagh! What the hell?!"
Polk Kitsune (2:13:40 AM): "If you can't tell you how to focus, I can at least make you reflect on your loss."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:14:16 AM): "Ngh...l-let me out of here, dammit!"
Hinoryu8 (2:14:38 AM): "What kind of bullshit is that? You didn't even fight his monsters."
Polk Kitsune (2:15:10 AM): "Unfortunately, this is what I should call discipline. Should have done it a long time ago."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:15:17 AM): "Ryuuji, SHUT UP!"
Polk Kitsune (2:15:31 AM): "You'll think about it when you drag the next student in the same way..."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:15:32 AM): He glares up at Bruce. "So what, you're gonna leave me here for a whole fuckin' week!?"
Polk Kitsune (2:15:43 AM): "No... Of course not."
Polk Kitsune (2:16:17 AM): "Once the tide comes in, if you're not out, you'd surely drown." He said with his arms crossed.
Polk Kitsune (2:16:40 AM): "This will only be for a few hours... or until you dig yourself out."
Polk Kitsune (2:17:29 AM): "This method is how some pirates executed some of their prisoners in the past."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:18:40 AM): Amado growled. "FINE! I can take whatever stupid fucking punishment you can dish out, Kaiser!"
Polk Kitsune (2:19:46 AM): "At least maybe the next time, you'll try against Anna instead of searching for me."
Polk Kitsune (2:22:37 AM): "Now..." He looked up to the other red. "You wanted a duel yourself, don't you?"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:23:21 AM): "What?! No!"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:23:27 AM): "He just got out of the hospital!"
Hinoryu8 (2:23:38 AM): "... technically, I snuck out."
Hinoryu8 (2:24:50 AM): "But still... This guy's ridiculous. I don't know there's any duelist I've wanted to beat down as badly as this guy."
Polk Kitsune (2:25:08 AM): Bruce crossed his arms. "Is that so?"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:25:32 AM): "Ryuuji! He's the fuckin' KAISER!"
Hinoryu8 (2:25:57 AM): "So what?"
Hinoryu8 (2:26:10 AM): "Kaiser or no, if I'm gonna be 'the best', that means I'll have to kick his ass sooner or later anyway!"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:26:42 AM): "That's fine and fucking well, but did you forget the LIFE-ENDING INJURIES!?"
Polk Kitsune (2:27:49 AM): "... If he's a man, he's got the right to make his own decisions."
Hinoryu8 (2:27:49 AM): "So I'm going to use that as an excuse to run away?"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:28:26 AM): "N-ngh..."
Hinoryu8 (2:28:51 AM): "... I don't think I'll win."
Hinoryu8 (2:29:04 AM): "In fact, I'm pretty damn sure I won't."
Hinoryu8 (2:29:21 AM): "But I want to see if the Kaiser's strength is really the Kaiser's own, or just the deck's."
Polk Kitsune (2:31:07 AM): "A deck and it's duelist are one and the same."
Polk Kitsune (2:31:31 AM): "A duelist pours his mind and soul into the built, into the strategy."
Hinoryu8 (2:32:16 AM): "A deck and a duelist have a symbiotic relationship, but they're not the same."
Polk Kitsune (2:32:19 AM): "Like a swordsman and his blade, the weapon is an extension of the holder. A part of his self."
Hinoryu8 (2:33:13 AM): "A good duelist requires a good deck, and a good deck needs a good duelist. But your deck... Does it even require any work on your part in the middle of the battle?"
Polk Kitsune (2:34:49 AM): "... Have you ever seen two master martial artists locked in a battle before?"
Hinoryu8 (2:35:14 AM): "... Uh. ... Depends on your definition of 'martial artist'?"
Hinoryu8 (2:36:18 AM): "If you're willing to be generous on how you define it, then yeah, with the best possible view."
Polk Kitsune (2:36:31 AM): "Two martial artists once, in a tournament... Two masters of their crafts, the peak of their generations..."
Polk Kitsune (2:36:50 AM): "One round lasted two hours... With the two only staring at each other..."
Polk Kitsune (2:36:59 AM): "Waiting for the other one to make the first move."
Hinoryu8 (2:37:13 AM): "And that's boring... No wonder you don't think it's a game. You can't have any fun with it like that."
Polk Kitsune (2:38:03 AM): "And with the consequences you've faced these past few months, you believe it's only a game?"
Hinoryu8 (2:38:37 AM): "Yep. A game made on ink and cardstock, manufactured by Industrial Illusions."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:39:00 AM): "Konami."
Hinoryu8 (2:39:09 AM): "Shush."
Polk Kitsune (2:39:28 AM): "And even though you've been here, you've never heard of the history of duel monsters before?"
Hinoryu8 (2:39:39 AM): "..."
Hinoryu8 (2:39:43 AM): Ryuuji cracked up laughing.
Polk Kitsune (2:42:07 AM): "Such a fool..."
Polk Kitsune (2:42:15 AM): Bruce snorted.
Hinoryu8 (2:42:21 AM): "Yeah."
Hinoryu8 (2:42:40 AM): "I am kind of an idiot."
Hinoryu8 (2:43:01 AM): "But y'know, which of us is more foolish? 'Cause at least I can enjoy myself."
Polk Kitsune (2:44:09 AM): "And I suppose it's fools liek you than created the Tokyo incident..."
Polk Kitsune (2:44:33 AM): "But in any case." He held up his duel disk. "Do you still wish to prove me wrong?"
Hinoryu8 (2:45:17 AM): "Hey, Amado, can you lend me your Disk?"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:46:04 AM): "Geez, fine..."
Hinoryu8 (2:46:17 AM): "... Kaiser, can you unbury his arm so I can get his disk?"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:46:35 AM): A burst of wind shoots out of the sand, freeing Amado. He crawls out, and pulls his Duel Disk off.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:47:05 AM): "Here." He takes his deck out, and puts both his deck boxes on the sand, before tossing the disk to Ryuuji.
Hinoryu8 (2:47:05 AM): "... Or that. That works."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:47:30 AM): He then gets back under the sand and glares at Bruce. "Well?! Set it back up!"
Hinoryu8 (2:47:53 AM): Ryuuji catches it, slides it on, takes his deck from his pocket, slots it in, and raises it. "Let's go."
Polk Kitsune (2:49:38 AM): Bruce smirked, and squeezed his hand, bring the sand back around Amado.
Polk Kitsune (2:49:57 AM): He raised his duel disk up. "Duel!"
Hinoryu8 (2:50:20 AM): "Duel."
Polk Kitsune (2:50:39 AM): "I start. Draw!"
Polk Kitsune (2:51:02 AM): "I set one defender, and one facedown card."
Polk Kitsune (2:51:06 AM): "That ends my turn."
Hinoryu8 (2:51:21 AM): "Draw." Ryuuji examined his hand.
Hinoryu8 (2:51:47 AM): "I'll mimic your move. One defender, and one facedown card. Turn end."
Polk Kitsune (2:52:31 AM): "Draw!"
Polk Kitsune (2:52:52 AM): "I flip summon the Golem Sentry." (800/1800)
Hinoryu8 (2:53:01 AM): "My monster gets bounced, right?"
Polk Kitsune (2:53:04 AM): "When flipped face-up, it returns your monster to your hand."
Polk Kitsune (2:53:08 AM): "Yes..."
Hinoryu8 (2:53:25 AM): Ryuuji took the monster back off the disk.
Polk Kitsune (2:53:36 AM): "Then... I'll tribute my Sentry for a defender."
Hinoryu8 (2:54:01 AM): "Guardian Sphinx."
Polk Kitsune (2:54:03 AM): "And play the field card, Chorus of Sanctuary."
Polk Kitsune (2:54:47 AM): Suddenly, the beach disappeared into a peaceful meadow, where an angelic chorus could be head all around.
Polk Kitsune (2:54:55 AM): "I end my turn."
Hinoryu8 (2:55:01 AM): Ryuuji shivered slightly as the chorus started up. "Draw!"
Hinoryu8 (2:56:11 AM): "I summon the Lord of Dragons." The armored man appeared, staring down the set.
Hinoryu8 (2:57:33 AM): "I play the magic card, Flute of Summoning Dragons!" The Lord took a horn out of nowhere and blew. Why it was called a 'flute' would be a mystery for the ages.
Polk Kitsune (2:57:42 AM): "..."
Hinoryu8 (2:58:18 AM): "Summon! Sapphire Dragon! And my favorite, Des Volstgalph!" The two dragons appeared, roaring. (1900 ATK and 2200 ATK)
Hinoryu8 (2:59:25 AM): "Reverse card, open! Mystical Space Typhoon, destroy the set magic!"
Polk Kitsune (2:59:43 AM): "Activate trap card!"
Polk Kitsune (2:59:50 AM): "Threatening Roar."
Hinoryu8 (3:00:09 AM): Ryuuji grimaced. That sunk his plan.
Hinoryu8 (3:00:28 AM): "... Then I end my turn."
Polk Kitsune (3:01:09 AM): "Draw!"
Hinoryu8 (3:01:26 AM): "And flip up Guardian Sphinx."
Polk Kitsune (3:01:34 AM): "... And end my turn."
Hinoryu8 (3:02:06 AM): "..." Ryuuji stared. He was trying to think of cards that bounced that activated on being flipped by battle.
Hinoryu8 (3:02:08 AM): "Draw."
Hinoryu8 (3:03:07 AM): "... Only one way to find out. Des Volstgalph, attack! Das Brennen!" The red dragon launched a fireball at the set.
Polk Kitsune (3:04:16 AM): And what the dragon met was... "Castle Gate!" (0/2400 - 0/2900)
Hinoryu8 (3:05:33 AM): Ryuuji's life fell to 7300. "Castle Gate?"
Polk Kitsune (3:05:57 AM): "Yes.... The impenetrable Castle Gate."
Hinoryu8 (3:06:50 AM): "If it's not bouncing my monsters, I'll be okay with that. Turn end."
Polk Kitsune (3:07:07 AM): "Draw!"
Polk Kitsune (3:07:40 AM): "... I set one defender."
Polk Kitsune (3:07:42 AM): "End turn."
Hinoryu8 (3:07:47 AM): "Draw!"
Hinoryu8 (3:08:23 AM): "I set a reverse card... Des Volstgalph, attack that new defending monster!"
Polk Kitsune (3:09:03 AM): And once more, than muscled man leapt at the dragon, pulling it to submission. "Legendary Jujitsu Master."
Polk Kitsune (3:09:17 AM): "Wich will send your dragon to the top of your deck."
Hinoryu8 (3:14:22 AM): "... Damn it..." Des Volstgalph vanishes.
Hinoryu8 (3:14:50 AM): "I end my turn there."
Polk Kitsune (3:15:34 AM): "And I draw."
Polk Kitsune (3:16:11 AM): "... I play one facedown card."
Polk Kitsune (3:16:17 AM): "And that ends my turn."
Hinoryu8 (3:16:34 AM): "Draw."
Hinoryu8 (3:19:32 AM): "I pass."
Polk Kitsune (3:23:01 AM): "Draw!"
Polk Kitsune (3:24:08 AM): "..." He stared at his cards a moment.
Polk Kitsune (3:24:14 AM): "... I end my turn."
Hinoryu8 (3:25:17 AM): "Draw!"
Hinoryu8 (3:25:52 AM): "Looks like we're having a topdeck war, Kaiser. Whoever's draw is less useless first gets an advantage."
Hinoryu8 (3:27:15 AM): "I think this draw counts. Sacrifice Sapphire Dragon for Des Volstgalph!" With a roar, the dragon appeared again.
Hinoryu8 (3:29:16 AM): "Next, magic card, Heavy Storm!"
Polk Kitsune (3:29:48 AM): "The Chorus and Grave of Enkindling die..."
Hinoryu8 (3:30:12 AM): "And Des Volstgalph's attack rises by 200, since that was a Magic card."
Hinoryu8 (3:30:41 AM): "Next, magic card, Dragon's Gunfire! Deal 800 points of damage to the opposing player!"
Polk Kitsune (3:30:53 AM): (7200)
Hinoryu8 (3:31:23 AM): Des Volstgalph roared, attack power at 2600.
Hinoryu8 (3:31:54 AM): "Des Volstgalph, attack Castle Gate! Das Brennen!"
Polk Kitsune (3:32:11 AM): Bruce snorted as the Castle Gate was assaulted.
Polk Kitsune (3:33:06 AM): "Unfortunately..."
Polk Kitsune (3:33:15 AM): "Castle Gate cannot be destroyed in battle."
Hinoryu8 (3:33:29 AM): "What?!"
Polk Kitsune (3:33:48 AM): As the smoke cleared, the gates were still closed shut.
Hinoryu8 (3:34:22 AM): "Dammit, just when I had it... I'll still find a way. Turn end!"
Polk Kitsune (3:34:48 AM): "Draw!"
Hinoryu8 (3:35:26 AM): Damn... If only I still had Red...
Polk Kitsune (3:38:30 AM): "... Once more, I end my turn."
Hinoryu8 (3:39:09 AM): "Draw."
Hinoryu8 (3:39:35 AM): "I set a monster and end my turn."
Polk Kitsune (3:40:16 AM): "Draw!"
Polk Kitsune (3:40:55 AM): "... I summon Grave Ohja to the field."
Hinoryu8 (3:41:30 AM): "Grave Ohja?"
Polk Kitsune (3:41:47 AM): "Grave Ohja, yes..." (1600/1500)
Polk Kitsune (3:42:00 AM): "He'll attack your Lord of Dragons."
Hinoryu8 (3:42:20 AM): (6900) The Lord melts.
Polk Kitsune (3:42:50 AM): "I will lay two facedown cards, and end my turn."
Hinoryu8 (3:42:57 AM): "Draw!"
Hinoryu8 (3:43:52 AM): "Field magic, Daichi no Ryuumyaku!"
Hinoryu8 (3:44:24 AM): The world is replaced by a wasteland with rocky spires everywhere, and lines of power pulsing under the ground.
Hinoryu8 (3:44:36 AM): Des Volstgalph roars in response. (3000 ATK)
Polk Kitsune (3:47:16 AM): "...Powering up your dragon."
Hinoryu8 (3:49:35 AM): "Yes."
Hinoryu8 (3:49:52 AM): "I figure one of those cards must be a card to reverse attack and defense... A deck like this would need it."
Hinoryu8 (3:50:23 AM): "So I figure I'll keep Des Volstgalph's attack high, even if you switch them. The attack bonus will reapply to the new attack. So, Des Volstgalph, attack Grave Ohja! Das Brennen!"
Polk Kitsune (3:51:55 AM): Bruce... Wasn't impressed. His monster was turned to dust. (5800)
Polk Kitsune (3:52:00 AM): "Activate trap card..."
Polk Kitsune (3:52:15 AM): "The Grave of Enkindling."
Polk Kitsune (3:53:35 AM): "With the destruction of Grave Ohja... We both get to special summon a monster in defense... And will stay that way as long as it's face-up."
Hinoryu8 (3:53:47 AM): "That suits me fine." The Lord of Dragons appeared in defense mode again.
Polk Kitsune (3:53:54 AM): "Golem Sentry comes to the field..."
Hinoryu8 (3:55:27 AM): "That's also fine. Turn end."
Polk Kitsune (3:55:33 AM): "Draw!"
Polk Kitsune (3:56:50 AM): "... I've gathered all I needed."
Polk Kitsune (3:57:11 AM): "First, I flip my Golem Sentry facedown."
Polk Kitsune (3:57:29 AM): "And since it's facedown, the effect of grave is void."
Polk Kitsune (3:58:14 AM): "... Then I'll use Premature Burial."
Polk Kitsune (3:58:17 AM): (5000)
Polk Kitsune (3:58:31 AM): "Grave Ohja returns to the field."
Hinoryu8 (3:59:18 AM): "Flip summoning Golem Sentry to bounce a monster of mine."
Polk Kitsune (3:59:36 AM): "I'll flip the Sentry to return your facedown monster."
Hinoryu8 (3:59:54 AM): It bounces.
Hinoryu8 (4:00:08 AM): (6600)
Polk Kitsune (4:00:19 AM): "And with Grave Ohja's effect... You get 300 damage."
Polk Kitsune (4:01:10 AM): "Now I play Lightning Vortex." He pulled Heavy Storm, and tossed both in the graveyard.
Hinoryu8 (4:01:49 AM): Dammit! I should have after all... "Both my monsters are destroyed."
Polk Kitsune (4:02:12 AM): "I turn Castle Gate in attack mode..."
Polk Kitsune (4:02:20 AM): "And of course, you know what follows."
Polk Kitsune (4:02:24 AM): "Shield and Sword."
Hinoryu8 (4:02:47 AM): "Of course."
Polk Kitsune (4:03:28 AM): "Grave Ohja (1500), Golem Sentry (1800), and Castle Gate (2400). Attack directly!"
Hinoryu8 (4:05:12 AM): Ryuuji takes the first hit and stands, then screams at the second, and finally just crumples to the ground at the third.
Hinoryu8 (4:05:18 AM): (900 LP)
Polk Kitsune (4:05:52 AM): "Main Phase Two..."
Polk Kitsune (4:07:19 AM): He waved his hand. "Castle Gate's effect."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:07:33 AM): "R-ryuuji!?"
Hinoryu8 (4:08:17 AM): "D- Dammit...."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:09:03 AM): "Dammit! Ryuuji! I'm taking you back to the infirmary!"
Hinoryu8 (4:09:22 AM): "Not yet!"
Polk Kitsune (4:09:35 AM): The gates opened wide, revealing a giant cannon. "... Are you sure about this?"
Hinoryu8 (4:09:41 AM): "I'm... not..." He slams a fist into the sand, and starts coughing blood.
Viewtiful Rekk (4:10:21 AM): With another burst of wind, the sand parts, and Amado makes his way out of the sand and over to Ryuuji.
Viewtiful Rekk (4:10:29 AM): "Stupid bastard! I knew I shouldn't have let you do this...!"
Hinoryu8 (4:11:28 AM): Ryuuji struggles to his feet, eyes shifting from their normal black to a feral red... A red that Amado would probably know well.
Hinoryu8 (4:11:33 AM): "I'm not done yet!"
Polk Kitsune (4:12:16 AM): "Unfortunately... As soon as this shot fires... It's over."
Polk Kitsune (4:12:44 AM): "Castle Gate's effect allows me to launch a monster directly to your lifepoints..."
Hinoryu8 (4:12:47 AM): "Then fire the shot, if you have the balls!"
Polk Kitsune (4:14:15 AM): "If I do, you may die... Or at least be back under the Hellnurse's care."
Polk Kitsune (4:14:25 AM): "You understand that, correct?"
Hinoryu8 (4:14:52 AM): Ryuuji stood, glaring at the Kaiser, eyes narrowed. "If you don't fire that shot, on my next turn, I'll turn this whole thing around."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:15:48 AM): "K-Kaiser! He's injured, and he's fucking delusional!"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:15:52 AM): "Don't do it! You already won!"
Hinoryu8 (4:16:41 AM): "I'm not surrendering."
Polk Kitsune (4:17:37 AM): "..."
Polk Kitsune (4:17:54 AM): "End turn."
Hinoryu8 (4:18:08 AM): Ryuuji smirked. "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:18:14 AM): "...." Amado slaps a hand to his face.
Hinoryu8 (4:18:56 AM): "Summon Sapphire Dragon in attack!" (1900 ATK)
Hinoryu8 (4:20:07 AM): Daichi no Ryuumyaku kicked in, boosting it to 2700. "Attack Golem Sentry!"
Polk Kitsune (4:21:00 AM): The Kaiser didn't move. "..." (3100)
Hinoryu8 (4:21:50 AM): "I set a reverse card... Turn end."
Polk Kitsune (4:22:23 AM): "Draw."
Polk Kitsune (4:22:42 AM): "I turn both of my monsters in defense.... And play a defender."
Polk Kitsune (4:22:47 AM): "That ends my turn."
Hinoryu8 (4:22:52 AM): "I draw."
Hinoryu8 (4:24:04 AM): "I set my own monster facedown..." He looked to Amado. "Wish I had kept Red for this..." Back to the duel, he ordered an attack from Sapphire Dragon to Castle Gate.
Polk Kitsune (4:25:37 AM): The Castle Gate stood as sturdy as ever...
Hinoryu8 (4:27:01 AM): Ryuuji just glared. He knew it wouldn't work, but beating on it made him feel better.
Hinoryu8 (4:27:03 AM): "Turn end."
Polk Kitsune (4:28:07 AM): "Draw!
Polk Kitsune (4:29:20 AM): "... I turn the Castle Gate in attack."
Polk Kitsune (4:29:51 AM): "And summon Golem Sentry."
Hinoryu8 (4:30:14 AM): "Back to this standoff?"
Polk Kitsune (4:32:19 AM): The castle gates opened once more, and this time, the Golem Sentry was inside the cannon. "If this is about your manhood, or your pride..."
Polk Kitsune (4:32:31 AM): He scoffed. "This won't be as bad..."
Hinoryu8 (4:32:40 AM): "Pride?"
Hinoryu8 (4:32:49 AM): "This is about pride... but not mine."
Hinoryu8 (4:34:01 AM): "This is for the pride of every card in this deck that can't do what it was born to do. Your tactics that deny battle hurt these cards far worse than my wounds hurt me."
Polk Kitsune (4:35:13 AM): "And what about the cards that can't battle your cards. Those with a more peaceful heart than your dragons."
Polk Kitsune (4:35:24 AM): "Do they deserve to be crushed under their foot?"
Hinoryu8 (4:36:12 AM): "The weak are eaten by the strong."
Polk Kitsune (4:36:19 AM): "..."
Hinoryu8 (4:36:23 AM): "It's a fact of nature. That's how it's always been."
Hinoryu8 (4:36:31 AM): "To deny that is to deny nature itself."
Polk Kitsune (4:36:41 AM): "Then you deserve this."
Polk Kitsune (4:36:46 AM): "Castle Gate, FIRE!"
Hinoryu8 (4:37:07 AM): "The two of us are part of this cycle, too.
Hinoryu8 (4:37:14 AM): "You were strong..."
Hinoryu8 (4:37:33 AM): Ryuuji pulls back an arm. "But I'm not weak either!" And he actually punches the Castle Gate's shot.
Hinoryu8 (4:38:41 AM): ... of course, his life still hits 0. And on that impact, the bandages around his torso start to redden.
Polk Kitsune (4:39:55 AM): "The strong... The weak..."
Polk Kitsune (4:39:59 AM): "It doesn't matter."
Hinoryu8 (4:40:42 AM): "... you won because you are strong."
Hinoryu8 (4:42:08 AM): "In body, I couldn't defeat that Castle Gate... In mind, I was eaten by that dragon... So I need to strengthen both. But when I'm stronger than you, I'm coming back for you."
Polk Kitsune (4:42:46 AM): "... And I'll be waiting."
Hinoryu8 (4:43:34 AM): "At that time, I'll use every ounce of power I have to crush you, and take your title for my own."
Hinoryu8 (4:44:07 AM): Before anyone could actually tell him that the title doesn't actually work that way, Ryuuji fell to the ground.
Polk Kitsune (4:44:17 AM): Bruce snorted. "If you knew how many people say the same threats... Baka-do here included."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:45:06 AM): "...Ryuuji..."
Polk Kitsune (4:45:21 AM): "... Guess I'll take him over to the infirmary."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:45:24 AM): "...." Amado lets out a long low groan and picks him up.
Viewtiful Rekk (4:45:28 AM): "No."
Polk Kitsune (4:45:29 AM): "And make sure he's strapped down this time."
Hinoryu8 (4:45:33 AM): "Watch yourself." Ryuuji muttered from the ground. "If both of us aren't careful, Amado will take your title before I can."
Hinoryu8 (4:45:39 AM): ... with that, he finally passed out.
Viewtiful Rekk (4:48:49 AM): Amado, of course, doesn't hear this.
Polk Kitsune (4:49:07 AM): Bruce gave a snort. "Of course..."
Polk Kitsune (4:50:23 AM): He looks to Amado. "... Next time, make sure he's fully healed before letting him out of bed. He'll kill himself."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:50:44 AM): "..."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:50:49 AM): Amado silently walks off.
Polk Kitsune (4:51:58 AM): Bruce gave a snort, pulling his duel disk off, and began training anew. "Baka..."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:00:26 AM): --------------------------------------------------------
