Viewtiful Rekk (10:18:39 PM): Jin calls Amy, verily.
Rakath Chaos (10:19:29 PM): Amy's PDA rings, she picks it up, "Hello?"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:20:40 PM): "Hey, idiot."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:20:45 PM): "Are you feeling better?"
Rakath Chaos (10:21:18 PM): "Well... I'm awake, and probably less injured than you... so yes, I am, thank's for asking Jinny."
Sinisquirrel (10:21:43 PM): Lily groans softly. I hadn't quite meant like that...
Viewtiful Rekk (10:22:06 PM): "Are you going to the infirmary to hear whatever yarn Donovan's spinning?"
Rakath Chaos (10:22:38 PM): "We are, we figured it'd be a good chuckle to hear him say 'its not my fault, my mommy left and my daddy beat me' to us."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:22:58 PM): "Fair enough. See you there." He hangs up.
Y Ruler of Time (10:23:05 PM): "Nice to know he cares."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:23:10 PM): "She said she'll be at the infirmary."
Rakath Chaos (10:23:29 PM): "He never changes..." Amy sighed, "Well, let's get going."
Sinisquirrel (10:24:04 PM): "Cynical as ever," Lily noted. Amy was... fine.
Hinoryu8 (10:24:09 PM): "Why're we gonna go see that Donovan bastard again?" Ryuuji asked Amado
Viewtiful Rekk (10:25:17 PM): "...'Cause I wanna her his explanation."
Rakath Chaos (10:25:35 PM): "The fact that he worries about me when I was the last one standing in that fight amazes... since he was the first to fall like he had a glass jaw."
Hinoryu8 (10:26:07 PM): "Explanation for what?" Ryuuji asked. "... I'd like a damn good explanation for why he apparently punted me off the platform, but..."
Y Ruler of Time (10:26:27 PM): "You were one'a the last t'wake up, though."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:27:49 PM): And eventually, the groups did sally forth and what ho, they arrived at the infirmary.
Hinoryu8 (10:29:22 PM): However, that's not to stop Ryuuji from tripping and plowing right into the door, headfirst.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:29:30 PM): "Nice job, dumbass."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:29:38 PM): Amado laughs as he trips into it next.
Sinisquirrel (10:29:43 PM): "S-Senpai, I think-- EEK!" Ren jumps back. "They... they're here..."
kwikkidus (10:30:07 PM): "...So I see." she puts a finger to her temple, sighing. "And we need a new door."
Y Ruler of Time (10:30:09 PM): " 'Ey, can you guys go back and do it again? I want to get this on tape..."
Rakath Chaos (10:30:24 PM): "My my," Amy walks up and doesn't trip, "Tweedle dum and Tweedle dee are here... wait, what did they have to do with this?"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:30:27 PM): "Oh joy, it's baka red and baka black."
Sinisquirrel (10:30:28 PM): "I don't think it was worth doing the first time, Riku-san."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:31:12 PM): "Hey! Hey! I fought Donovan in a vicious battle to the death!"
Sinisquirrel (10:31:16 PM): "Er, well, Amado-san was... ah... I... I guess senpai should explain... it..."
kwikkidus (10:31:29 PM): "Didn't you lose, though?"
Rakath Chaos
(10:31:56 PM): "If it was to the death... wouldn't one of you be dead?"
Sinisquirrel (10:32:09 PM): "She has a point."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:32:10 PM): "...well..."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:32:14 PM): "I was bleeding a lot."
Hinoryu8 (10:32:22 PM): "... Uncool, Amado."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:32:26 PM): "SHUT IT!"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:32:30 PM): Punch.
Sinisquirrel (10:33:01 PM): "Gyah! S-Sensei...!" They were fighting already?
kwikkidus (10:33:38 PM): "Tsukayama!" And it's said with the voice that means 'massive pain is coming if you do not stop right now.'
Viewtiful Rekk (10:34:22 PM): Amado growls and stops his obvious total beatdown of Ryuuji.
Polk Kitsune (10:34:28 PM): Casey finally came to the infirmary, raisin an eyebrow at the scene before him. Circus hasn't left town, I see...
Rakath Chaos (10:34:42 PM): "...Anyone got a camera, I'm sure that yaoi obsessed girl would love a picture of that."
Y Ruler of Time (10:34:49 PM): "What a responsible teacher, breakin' up the fight 'tween the kids. Never mind the whole 'let 'em choke on smoke' bit from a couple weeks ago."
Rakath Chaos (10:35:25 PM): "Hey Jeeves, glad you could show up," Amy says before giving him a hug.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:35:32 PM): "Watch out, Akihara may be the next one who goes berserk and tries to kill us all."
Hinoryu8 (10:36:25 PM): "Nah, I'd only kill Amado."
Polk Kitsune (10:36:26 PM): Casey smirked, and gave Amy a quick hug. "Thanks for the invitation. Should be worth it."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:36:35 PM): Alastor, meanwhile, is quietly sitting in a bad, which he is shackled to.
Hinoryu8 (10:36:37 PM): A pause.
Hinoryu8 (10:36:49 PM): "And maybe that Space Medafighter X guy. He was a dick."
Rakath Chaos (10:37:31 PM): Elsewhere...
Rakath Chaos (10:37:37 PM): Tragedy sneezes.
Sinisquirrel (10:37:54 PM): Speaking of the guy on the bed (or not, as the case was): "Weren't we here for something?"
Y Ruler of Time (10:38:23 PM): "Who cares? Let's just exchange witty remarks and comebacks all day."
Sinisquirrel (10:38:48 PM): "I-I care! I asked earlier and haven't gotten to hear yet!" The Yellow harumphed.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:39:03 PM): "Yeah! We're here to..." Pause. Look at PDA.
kwikkidus (10:39:16 PM): "Hear Alastor's reasons for his crimes, Amado."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:39:19 PM): "Wait, the 'I Hate Eon FLunky' club meets on Tuesday."
Hinoryu8 (10:39:23 PM): "Do we get to punch him?"
Y Ruler of Time (10:39:53 PM): "...When'd he get here?"
Rakath Chaos (10:39:55 PM): "Must everything be violence for those two?"
Polk Kitsune (10:39:56 PM): "If you punch him, he can't talk."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:40:14 PM): Alastor smirks. "That's everyone, I take it?"
kwikkidus (10:40:30 PM): "I walked in while you were busy trying to be snarky."
Hinoryu8 (10:40:34 PM): "Hey. I figure I at least should get to kick him off a roof."
Sinisquirrel (10:42:12 PM): Sigh. "I am at least sitting down," the sweats-wearing Red mumbles.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:42:47 PM): Jin sits next to Lily. Amado hrmphs and sits down.
kwikkidus (10:42:57 PM): "It is everyone. Get to the point."
Hinoryu8 (10:43:22 PM): Ryuuji just sits down on the floor and relaxes.
Polk Kitsune (10:43:46 PM): Casey leans against the wall, watching the situation.
Rakath Chaos (10:44:45 PM): Amy crosses her arms where she stands and waits for the rain of excuses.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:44:47 PM): "Alright, then..." He takes a breath. "First off, there's something you all need to know."
kwikkidus (10:44:49 PM): Eon grabs a seat as well, keeping a Lily between imself and Jin.
Y Ruler of Time (10:45:01 PM): "EVERYONE STOP SITTING AND LET HIM TALK"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:45:05 PM): "While the Dis-Belts, the tournament, all of that was my p-"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:45:14 PM): Alastor calmly tosses a pillow at Riku.
Y Ruler of Time (10:45:21 PM): A brick plummets from the sky and hits Riku in the head.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:45:51 PM): "Anyway."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:46:06 PM): "While the Dis-Belts, the tournament, all of that was my plan, and I had my own reasons for doing it..."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:46:40 PM): "They were all a means to an end, to getting into the vault. And it was not my end that it was for."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:47:12 PM): "I was told to break into the vault and to retrieve one of the cards inside, The Wicked Dreadroot."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:49:45 PM): "Coincidentally, I was told to do that...." He removes his shirt. On his left breast is a rust-colored mark. "By the same man who gave me this."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:49:49 PM): "The Elemental Seal of Fire."
kwikkidus (10:49:56 PM): "!!"
Hinoryu8 (10:50:11 PM): "... Magic tattoos. Those never end well."
Polk Kitsune (10:50:14 PM): Casey's eyes went wide at the sight. "... You're kidding me..."
Y Ruler of Time (10:50:15 PM): "..." Riku looks nonplussed. "The what?"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:50:32 PM): "..." Amado frowns. So that was it...
Sinisquirrel (10:50:35 PM): Ren suffers a similar reaction to the Hellnurse, but, well, for more than just the tat.
Rakath Chaos (10:50:37 PM): Amy closes her eyes for a moment, her eyes violet when they open again.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:50:49 PM): "...Ugh..." Jin smacks a palm to his face. "Just great..."
Y Ruler of Time (10:51:23 PM): "..." Riku looks around. "Does everybody understand the significance of this thing but me? 'Cause I can leave now and get the memo later..."
Sinisquirrel (10:51:30 PM): Meanwhile, Lily reels. I couldn't have... beaten an entire seal, could I?
kwikkidus (10:51:34 PM): "So you can burn things better. I fail to see how this explains you being a total ass..."
Polk Kitsune (10:51:44 PM): "... You met with... Kegan?"
Y Ruler of Time (10:51:46 PM): "Thank you, Flunky."
Hinoryu8 (10:51:56 PM): Ryuuji glances at Riku. "Magic tattoo. Play more video games and you'll get it."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:51:58 PM): "It's a very powerful piece of Elemental magic, Riku."
Y Ruler of Time (10:51:58 PM): "...Never thought I'd say those three words in a row."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:52:07 PM): "Think of Thestalos times about 100,000."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:52:25 PM): Alastor laughs. "I wouldn't put it that far."
Y Ruler of Time (10:52:28 PM): "...So am I allowed to suffocate him now?"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:52:36 PM): "He only gave me a very small fragment of his Seal."
kwikkidus (10:52:48 PM): "Hardly. Alastor, keep talking."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:53:08 PM): "I understand he wanted to keep the majority of it for himself...he only gave me enough to kickstart my development and allow me to get an Avatar Seal with Horus."
Polk Kitsune (10:53:22 PM): Casey facepalmed. "Dammit..."
Hinoryu8 (10:53:34 PM): "Avatar Seal?"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:53:54 PM): "A bond with a Duel Spirit that increases a human's power."
Rakath Chaos (10:53:57 PM): "Seems that seal is dead now, but..." Amy's eyes go to the red idiot who uses Windy Dragons.
Hinoryu8 (10:54:35 PM): "Huh. Okay then."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:55:11 PM): Amado glances at Amy.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:55:13 PM): "...What?"
Sinisquirrel (10:55:32 PM): "S-So..." Understanding a bit about Elemental Seals, Ren has to ask: "The Seal undermined your original personality?"
Polk Kitsune (10:55:58 PM): "... So he kept most of it... I guess it really does make you go crazy, doesn't it?"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:56:02 PM): "...I don't know what the right word is."
Rakath Chaos (10:56:26 PM): "Nothing." Amy waves off Amado's glance.
kwikkidus (10:56:26 PM): "I would venture to guess that it made small suggestions that made a great deal of sense..."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:56:43 PM): "But...the more I used the Seal, the more it...changed the way I thought."
Sinisquirrel (10:57:05 PM): "I... I see..." The relief in her voice is obvious... it... kind of wasn't all his fault.
Hinoryu8 (10:57:13 PM): "So it wasn't you that had the idea to punt me off a giant platform, but the Seal?"
Y Ruler of Time (10:57:19 PM): "Makes sense. Hotel didn't just up and say 'Jack, kill your family' right off the bat."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:57:20 PM): "No, that was me."
Hinoryu8 (10:57:25 PM): "Bastard!"
Polk Kitsune (10:57:26 PM): "But you still went along with it, didn't you?"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:57:44 PM): "...The Seal's power...was intoxicating."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:57:57 PM): "It was like a drug of some sort. The more I used it, the more it clawed its way into my mind."
Sinisquirrel (10:58:29 PM): "Although what's more important-- did the owner of the seal contact you, or you him?"
Rakath Chaos (10:58:37 PM): "So this is where we say drugs are bad and still don't forgive you?"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:58:55 PM): "Every time I calmed down enough to try and stop myself, I felt the need to get another rush from its power..."
Polk Kitsune (10:59:11 PM): "... So that's how it feels..."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:59:29 PM): "..." Alastor smirks. "Trust me. This isn't a man that could be contacted unless he wanted to be."
Polk Kitsune (10:59:47 PM): "Agreed..."
Sinisquirrel (10:59:51 PM): "Still. Which was it?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:00:10 PM): "He contacted me. But when he offered me his terms, I accepted without much deliberation."
Sinisquirrel (11:00:24 PM): "Why?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:01:00 PM): "...it wouldn't interest any of you."
Y Ruler of Time (11:01:20 PM): "Yeah, that's why she asked. 'Cause she ain't interested."
Hinoryu8 (11:01:24 PM): "Hold it. You called us here to answer questions. So answer the question."
Polk Kitsune (11:02:47 PM): "... Does it matter?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:02:57 PM): Alastor sighed. "Fine, fine...but don't bitch at me for trying to give you excuses afterwards..."
Y Ruler of Time (11:03:13 PM): "Amy was gonna do that anyway,"
Sinisquirrel (11:03:35 PM): "It quite does," Lily replied. After all, if his intentions had been selfish from the start... well, you could conclude from there.
Rakath Chaos (11:03:37 PM): "Don't tell him that before I have my fun."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:05:26 PM): He looked to the side. "...I've been held back in my third year twice now. If I weren't to pass this year, then I'd be kicked out of Duel Academy, and that would be the end of any shot I had at a dueling career."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:06:34 PM): "Barely scraping by into Ra Yellow, always scoring low marks, losing my duels, not having any capacity to do magic like some of the other students here...it was utterly maddening."
Sinisquirrel (11:07:00 PM): "E-Eh?" Ren had had... no idea he'd been held back at all. He'd always seemed to be... so good.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:07:25 PM): "So, the Summer before this year started, out of desperation, I spent what little money I had building my Darkness deck, and found my way into the Underground League."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:08:49 PM): "I came close to losing numerous times, but I somehow managed to eke out victory after victory...at what I'm sure was great cost to my health."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:09:29 PM): "By that point, I had pretty much abandoned any notion of returning to Duel Academy, but that man approached me and made his offer. I accepted."
Polk Kitsune (11:11:10 PM): "... Promise of power, eh?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:11:16 PM): "When I saw the strength the Fire Seal had given me, I intently researched everything I could about Duel Energy, and it's applications. Eventually, I found out about the Dis-Belts."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:11:52 PM): "I figured...they'd help me get into the vault, and they'd show the things that Duel Energy could do to the students."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:12:23 PM): "My methods may have been a bit overboard, but..." He smirks. "All of you are stronger now, are you not?"
kwikkidus (11:12:39 PM): "...I guess?
Viewtiful Rekk (11:12:48 PM): "Besides you."
Sinisquirrel (11:12:58 PM): Just look at me, would you? Yes, 'stronger.' Glare.
Y Ruler of Time (11:13:01 PM): Riku stomps forward looking like he wants to throttle Donovan.
Rakath Chaos (11:13:03 PM): Amy thought about that, and just looked down.
Sinisquirrel (11:13:22 PM): Ren, of course, stepped up to intercept. "N-Now...!"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:13:33 PM): "Ren-chan. Let him say what he wants."
Hinoryu8 (11:13:44 PM): "Not really stronger. Just pissy."
Sinisquirrel (11:14:06 PM): "I-I'm afraid he doesn't want to 'say' it, s-senpai."
Y Ruler of Time (11:14:17 PM): Riku stops his advance as Ren intercedes, nonetheless. A look of hesitation cross his face as she comes into his path.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:14:17 PM): "...then if he wants to throttle me, let him."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:14:24 PM): "I've earned that much, at least."
Y Ruler of Time (11:15:43 PM): "Just fuckin' listen to yourself talk like that," Riku sneers. "You trying to say what you did helped us?"
Sinisquirrel (11:15:44 PM): "Maybe, but... I'm not just going to let him do that..." If she could help it, anyway.
Y Ruler of Time (11:15:57 PM): "Almost everyone in this room came close to dying because of what you did!"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:16:02 PM): "Those trees didn't replant themselves, did they?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:16:18 PM): "...'Came close' doesn't have a funeral."
Sinisquirrel (11:16:53 PM): "Even himself," Lily muttered, looking at her shoes.
kwikkidus (11:17:24 PM): "...I would like to point out... that Alastor is already very likely to be facing expulsion over all this."
Hinoryu8 (11:17:36 PM): "Wait, he is?"
Y Ruler of Time (11:17:39 PM): "About fuckin' time."
Polk Kitsune (11:17:45 PM): "If not worse..."
Hinoryu8 (11:18:07 PM): Ryuuji seems honestly surprised that the universe doesn't seem to be following the Adults Are Useless trope.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:18:11 PM): "I imagine that when news of this gets across the pond, they'll want their fair shot at me back home too."
Rakath Chaos (11:18:27 PM): "So... he nearly gets everyone in here killed, and all he gets is an expulsion... This school has interesting priorities."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:19:00 PM): "I'm pretty sure I wasn't out to kill anybody from the start."
Polk Kitsune (11:19:08 PM): "... Not quite. I doubt the original owner will be content to just stay home and twindle his thumbs..."
Hinoryu8 (11:19:11 PM): "Hey, I can understand that." Ryuuji shrugged.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:19:24 PM): "You all seemed to be the ones closest to killing each other, not me."
Hinoryu8 (11:19:26 PM): "I mean, would you want to try and punish a guy who can out-burn Thestalos?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:19:34 PM): Alastor glances at Amy and Lily as he says this.
Rakath Chaos (11:19:48 PM): Amy walks up, "Mention that again, and remember your actions caused that."
Sinisquirrel (11:20:11 PM): Lily... doesn't look up, her small grip on Jin tightening just slightly.
Rakath Chaos (11:20:11 PM): "And I do want you dead for making me have to do what I did back there."
Polk Kitsune (11:20:29 PM): "Alastor, you do realise that as soon as you step off this island, Kegan will be after you, don't you?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:21:08 PM): "...." Jin glances at her, then at Alastor, but does nothing.
Polk Kitsune (11:21:08 PM): "He'll want that card... and his piece of the seal you've got."
Rakath Chaos (11:21:10 PM): Amy walked out, "I'm going to wait outside before the urge to smother Donovan with a pillow becomes stronger."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:21:32 PM): "Get the fuck off of that high horse while you're out there."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:21:55 PM): Alastor glances to Casey. "I don't have the card, first off. And I know he'll want his Seal back."
Rakath Chaos (11:22:22 PM): Amy shoots back a look that says 'shut the fuck up' to Amado while she leaves.
Polk Kitsune (11:22:27 PM): "And how do you think he'll react?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:22:41 PM): "Uh. I think he'll try to kill me."
Y Ruler of Time (11:22:46 PM): "However the hell he reacts, you'll deserve every bit of it an' more."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:22:53 PM): "I think he would've already if he knew I was telling all of you this."
Polk Kitsune (11:22:53 PM): He snerked. "If you're lucky."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:23:13 PM): ".....razzafrazzin...."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:23:18 PM): Amado stands up and heads out after her.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:23:30 PM): "HEY! You got somethin' to say to me?!" He says, after closing the door.
Hinoryu8 (11:23:38 PM): "So here's a question."
Polk Kitsune (11:24:03 PM): "He may be an a man of the army, but I'm sure he'll torture you for a long, long time..."
Hinoryu8 (11:24:22 PM): "Using that seal a lot messed up your brain. I get that part. But now you're back to normal, apparently. If you start using the Seal again, will it start messing with your brain again?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:24:25 PM): "Thanks for the heads up."
Rakath Chaos (11:24:27 PM): "First off Sealboy, I'm not on a high horse if I dislike the person that caused someone I want to be friends with to go mad and try to kill me.
Rakath Chaos (11:24:29 PM): I also don't like the person who made me have to take out the person I wouldn't mind being friends with."
Sinisquirrel (11:24:38 PM): "H-Hey..." There were some people who didn't want to hear all about how Alastor would be pummeled, thank you.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:25:03 PM): "It's only stopped because Miss Sakuma effectively destroyed all of my body's Duel Energy."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:25:24 PM): "I'm at empty. The Seal has nothing to feed off of, thus, it's gone into a comatose state."
Polk Kitsune (11:25:38 PM): ".. Lucky."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:25:48 PM): "As soon my Duel Energy recovers, which I have no idea how long it'll take, I assume the Seal will start clawing at my brain again."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:25:57 PM): Amado grabs her and slams her into a wall.
kwikkidus (11:25:57 PM): "...So then you're screwed either way, ne?"
Hinoryu8 (11:25:59 PM): "... So you have no way to defend yourself, for the moment."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:25:59 PM): "Amado Tsukayama."
Rakath Chaos (11:26:33 PM): "Why should I trust you, Seal of Wind. What's to stop that gem on you from making you try to kill us all?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:26:53 PM): Amado pulls back a fist and throws a punch at Amy's jaw.
Rakath Chaos (11:27:22 PM): A Halo forms in front of the fist and keeps it from her, "I can't transform fully right now, and don't want a fight."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:27:38 PM): "Listen to me right now."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:27:45 PM): "Donovan's a scumbag. We both know that."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:27:57 PM): "But you have no goddamn idea what these things can do to your head."
Rakath Chaos (11:28:31 PM): "Yours, did you ask for it, or get told about it first? He grabbed power as he saw it without a second thought."
Sinisquirrel (11:28:40 PM): "Why... do you say that, Akihara-san...?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:28:42 PM): "I can hardly sleep without some spirit trying to force its way into my head through my dreams, and I've used the thing twice."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:28:55 PM): "Right now? Not really."
Hinoryu8 (11:29:29 PM): "I'm trying to think of a way for him to survive this." Ryuuji shrugged. "Without going crazy again."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:29:46 PM): "I'm not sticking up for him. But don't act like if you weren't in the same situation, you wouldn't have ended up at the same fucking ending as he did."
Rakath Chaos (11:30:06 PM): "Would you of taken that power offered no questions asked as to what it would do to you?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:30:07 PM): "Uh, I've been noodling that one myself."
Rakath Chaos (11:30:12 PM): "I would never have accepted that power."
Rakath Chaos (11:30:21 PM): "I'm only lucky the power forced on me is a spirit of good."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:30:37 PM): "There's no such thing as 'good'."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:30:46 PM): "What's 'good' to you is probably pure evil to somebody else."
Sinisquirrel (11:30:53 PM): "I-I think... maybe we could find someone to help... maybe a good seal?"
Hinoryu8 (11:31:01 PM): "He's got your seal, only a zillion times stronger, right?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:31:07 PM): "Yeah."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:31:20 PM): "For the record, you guys shouldn't try to help me, or even let on that I've told you this."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:31:29 PM): "Pretty sure he'd be after you too in that case."
Polk Kitsune (11:31:52 PM): Casey snerked. "Been there, done that."
Hinoryu8 (11:31:53 PM): "... You said he won't get you while you're on this island, right?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:32:04 PM): "...probably not."
Hinoryu8 (11:32:11 PM): "Then I got an idea."
Rakath Chaos (11:32:36 PM): "You have a beast crawling into your brain, did you ask for it like Donovan?"
Rakath Chaos (11:32:43 PM): Amy returns to her ignored question.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:32:44 PM): "...No."
Y Ruler of Time (11:33:02 PM): "...Forget this..." Riku prepares to leave. "Oy, Donovan, just remember somethin' for me."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:33:14 PM): "What, 'go to hell'?"
Hinoryu8 (11:33:21 PM): "From what I see, this place attracts trouble pretty damn well." Ryuuji explained. "So... By that same token, it needs people to help against that trouble."
Rakath Chaos (11:33:46 PM): "Then you are not like him. But, if your power is changing you, you should find some other power to use to do what you wish. Rather than lose yourself in a power that was forced on you."
Hinoryu8 (11:33:48 PM): "Hide out somewhere until trouble shows up again, then come out and kick its ass. Hopefully, the good you do and the bad will balance out enough so people'll let you stay."
Y Ruler of Time (11:33:48 PM): "Imagine somethin' horrible happening to every friend you ever made. An' then try feelin' sympathy for the person who caused it all."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:34:11 PM): Alastor smirks.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:34:20 PM): "That's why I was going to let you throttle me."
kwikkidus (11:35:13 PM): "...Alastor. If you want to 'die,' you need only ask."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:35:51 PM): "By the same token, you remember something."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:36:27 PM): "When you're up against somebody who does want to kill your friends, and you're capable of standing up to that person, just think back to your duels with me and Thestalos for a few seconds."
Sinisquirrel (11:36:57 PM): "Sensei..."
Rakath Chaos (11:36:59 PM): "Know this, Amado Tsukayama, I do not wish you harm, no wish anyone harm. However..." Amy pauses, "If you get lost in your power like Donovan, I will stop you, and while I want to protect everyone... I have limits to my abilities."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:37:09 PM): "...."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:37:15 PM): "I'm not getting lost in anything."
Y Ruler of Time (11:37:20 PM): "...Feh..." he goes out the door...to see the little standoff between Amy and Amado.
Rakath Chaos (11:37:59 PM): "Your power is just like his, only yours isn't a fragment. What makes you think that it won't take you over the same way, since there is no 'good'."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:39:03 PM): "...."
kwikkidus (11:39:09 PM): "...I did not mean killing him, Ren."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:39:11 PM): Amado just stares at Amy for a very long moment.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:39:20 PM): "...what, you mean a coma?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:39:37 PM): Alastor sighs. "Zana-sensei. Do me a favor, and don't get involved with this."
Polk Kitsune (11:39:51 PM): "... Might be safer for you, really."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:39:54 PM): "You're a strong person, I know that. But against this person...you're nothing but an ant."
Polk Kitsune (11:40:16 PM): "Agreed..."
kwikkidus (11:42:13 PM): "...Hmph. Fine then, do as you like." She folds her arms, leaning back against the wall.
Sinisquirrel (11:42:48 PM): Ren sighs. At least... they don't really want him to die? She was a bit confused as to everyone's reactions so far.
Rakath Chaos (11:43:06 PM): "You have a great power in you, but I will find a way to stop it if I need to. I have friends here, and I'll protect them, protect everyone I can."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:44:47 PM): "...stop talking about me like I'm already gone just because of this stupid mark!"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:45:31 PM): "These things AREN'T absolute! I'm going to stop them! I'm going to find a way to reverse mine, and Donovan's, and Zaniah's too! Just watch!"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:45:36 PM): With that, he walks off.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:45:49 PM): ...and doesn't realize that he mentioned Zaniah until he's already gone.
Y Ruler of Time (11:45:56 PM): "..."
Sinisquirrel (11:45:58 PM): "They sound fairly upset out there..."
Rakath Chaos (11:46:29 PM): Amy falls against the wall as her Halo fades, "I wish what I said was more than talk... But, when Alastor asked if we got stronger, I haven't yet... not without being unconcious for four days..."
Rakath Chaos (11:46:45 PM): Amy did wish Amado the best of luck with what he declared, and took note of Zaniah being mentioned.
kwikkidus (11:47:14 PM): "I believe I was mentioned..." She hums a moment. "I will have to excuse myself now."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:47:28 PM): "At any rate, stop trying to think up ways to protect me."
Sinisquirrel (11:49:07 PM): "B-But... we... uhm... we want to?"
kwikkidus (11:51:07 PM): Stepping outside, she looks towards the enterance to the infirmary proper. "Did someone call?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:51:10 PM): "If you get involved, he'll come after you too."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:51:46 PM): Alastor looks very seriously at Ren. "There's nothing that can be done for me at this point, Ren-chan. Don't get involved."
Rakath Chaos (11:52:01 PM): "Amado was just making sure I knew that he wasn't like Donovan..." Amy sighs, "Its nothing."
Polk Kitsune (11:52:09 PM): "You could always run... Once you're out there.""
Sinisquirrel (11:52:19 PM): "M-Maybe... I could get gran'pa to... get me strong... er..." Ren fidgets, mumbling.
kwikkidus (11:52:32 PM): "I fail how to see how my name could possibly come up in that conversation unless..." That IDIOT.
Y Ruler of Time (11:52:50 PM): "...Amy, let's go..."
Rakath Chaos (11:52:59 PM): "Don't worry, I got secrets like you..." Amy smiles.
Rakath Chaos (11:53:04 PM): "I won't tell."
Y Ruler of Time (11:53:21 PM): "No promises."
Rakath Chaos (11:53:35 PM): Amy looks over to Riku, "Can you wait a bit, I wanna, um... Talk to Lily right quick. Stuff happened, 'member?"
Y Ruler of Time (11:53:52 PM): "...Yeah, that's right."
kwikkidus (11:54:16 PM): "I see.. so you do not know anything after all. Very well." she nods before heading off to check on her paperwork.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:54:50 PM): Alastor slaps a hand to his face.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:54:53 PM): "Ren-chan."
Rakath Chaos (11:54:58 PM): Amy ducks into the infirmary, and motions for Lily to come out in the hall for a moment.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:55:00 PM): "This man would kill Master Soren."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:55:18 PM): "He would kill Zana-sensei, he would kill Ichirou-sensei, he certainly wouldn't have any problem killing you."
Sinisquirrel (11:55:19 PM): "I... I don't believe that..."
Sinisquirrel (11:55:54 PM): "... apparently, I have to be a moment." Lily manages to move off of the bed, heading out the door.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:56:21 PM): "...Wait." Jin says, and helps her up, supporting her as she walks out to the hall.
Polk Kitsune (11:56:27 PM): "I know the man... I'm sure he'd enjoy it too."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:56:51 PM): "...Ren-chan...just promise me you won't get involved with this."
Rakath Chaos (11:57:04 PM): Amy waits for the pair to join her in the hall. Before doing something very un-Amy-like. She bows in appology to them both.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:57:31 PM): "....is the Prime Minister standing behind us?"
Sinisquirrel (11:57:48 PM): "... ... ... I hate it when y-you..." If he asked her to do anything, well, she'd do it... even if she didn't want to. "A-All right... but I refuse to not help you!"
Hinoryu8 (11:58:03 PM): "... did you just miss my genius plan?"
Y Ruler of Time (11:58:12 PM): "She's apologizin', jerk."
Sinisquirrel (11:58:30 PM): "..." Lily isn't sure what to make of it. "For... what?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:58:36 PM): "Your genius plan is idiocy."
Hinoryu8 (11:58:53 PM): "Do you have a better one?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:58:54 PM): "If I hid, he'd just raze this Academy until you gave me up, or I gave myself up."
Rakath Chaos (11:58:59 PM): Riku, not makin' this easier. "For not being fast enough, for you both getting hurt... but more towards you Lily and what I... had to do..."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:58:59 PM): "Yeah. Accept it."
Hinoryu8 (11:59:15 PM): "That's stupid. Sometimes, idiocy is the only way to get through!"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:59:44 PM): "..." Jin sighs. "I see." Part of him wants to tell her how blatantly unnesecary that is, but he doesn't.
Sinisquirrel (12:00:11 AM): "I... accepted the consequences the moment I invoked Daeva's form. I did not entirely anticipate... what happened, but... I would have been fine, uhm..."
Sinisquirrel (12:00:16 AM): "If 'that' had happened, too."
kwikkidus (12:00:23 AM): "You know, there's a thing about super-powerful sociopaths..."
Sinisquirrel (12:00:47 AM): "Yeah, like... isn't the saying that 'it's just crazy enough to work?'"
kwikkidus (12:01:16 AM): "The really supremely strong ones are also really supremely predictable. Once you can predict them, you can trap them, ne?"
Rakath Chaos
(12:01:28 AM): Now Amy does something a lot more Amy-like, she hugs the both of them. Jin first, then Lily.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:01:33 AM): "Flunky, if you were any dumber, you'd need a helmet."
kwikkidus (12:02:09 AM): "So says the guy who spent the last few weeks enslaved by a tattoo. Pardon me if I don't feel too insulted."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:02:18 AM): "Get out."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:02:34 AM): "Get out before I bite my way through this chain and beat the hell out of you myself."
Sinisquirrel (12:03:00 AM): At least that sounds more like senpai...
Sinisquirrel (12:03:29 AM): "Ah... uhm..." The Red isn't sure how to react. Hug back? Yes, that seemed right. "Thank you."
kwikkidus (12:03:37 AM): "Oh sorry, did that burn?" He stands, waving a hand over his shoulder. "Well.. .when you stop seeing yellow, give me a call, ne? On second thought, have your girlfriend call me. Her credit's better."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:04:15 AM): "...."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:04:27 AM): Alastor grabs a scalpel and flings it at Eon.
Rakath Chaos (12:04:42 AM): "But realize, I should totally be blaming Jin for this whole mess, as I'm fairly sure his being taken out so fast was the cause of all the commotion." And in one moment, Amy undoes EVERYTHING she just did.
Sinisquirrel (12:04:44 AM): "Senpai!"
Hinoryu8 (12:04:46 AM): Ryuuji was tempted to punch Eon on Alastor's behalf, but Alastor could apparently handle it himself.
Rakath Chaos (12:04:48 AM): "Okay Riku, we can go now."
kwikkidus (12:05:15 AM): He turns his head back around, tilting a little as to let it whizz right by his face. "...Are you quite finished?"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:05:31 AM): "Just die, Sullivan."
Y Ruler of Time (12:05:48 AM): "Glad we're back to normal."
Sinisquirrel (12:06:03 AM): "Heh. Heheh. Heheh..." Undid everything, indeed.
Rakath Chaos (12:07:25 AM): Amy starts walking off, "I'm hungry again... let's get some more food."
Sinisquirrel (12:08:10 AM): "To think... I had been worried..." Lily muttered, palm to face, shaking her head.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:09:44 AM): "Confused me too."
Sinisquirrel (12:11:09 AM): "Say, tell me... humor me... Did you ever have any feelings for Amy-san? Besides ire?"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:12:24 AM): "Does burning hatred count as ire?"
Sinisquirrel (12:12:34 AM): "... it's just different enough."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:12:44 AM): "I respect her."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:12:52 AM): "She's an idiot, but she's a strong idiot."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:12:58 AM): "And her heart is in the right place."
Sinisquirrel (12:13:14 AM): "... do you have any feelings for Riku-san?"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:13:24 AM): "Burning homosexual lust."
Sinisquirrel (12:13:34 AM): "... so the rumors are true."
Y Ruler of Time (12:13:37 AM): "Damn right."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:14:00 AM): "I'm sorry Lily. In another time, another place, it may have worked. But he's stolen my heart away."
Hinoryu8 (12:14:09 AM): Ryuuji stands up. "Well, you punted me off an incredibly large platform, but I don't actually hold a grudge." Pause. "I'm not sure why, come to think of it. I mean, I really should."
Sinisquirrel (12:14:24 AM): "Ah, well, it's all right... I think I'll go pursue Flunky..."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:14:39 AM): "It was on to a moon bounce."
Hinoryu8 (12:14:43 AM): "You punted me off a friggin' platform in the sky, while I was out cold... I could've died."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:14:45 AM): "Most people would pay for that."
kwikkidus (12:15:10 AM): "..." Well look who had just wandered by at the wrong time. "What?"
Sinisquirrel (12:15:10 AM): "I-I don't think they would, senpai..." Pause. Her romance senses were tingling!
Viewtiful Rekk (12:15:19 AM): "Well now I'll just stay with you out of spite."
Hinoryu8 (12:15:30 AM): "Moon bounce or no, it was still a few hundred feet, right? By all rights, I easily could have died..." He paused. "... Okay, where was I going to go with this?"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:15:43 AM): "You were going to pay me 1500 yen."
Sinisquirrel (12:16:32 AM): "..." Lily looks at Eon, then at Jin and does something more out of character than dressing in sweats-- laughing. Loudly.
Sinisquirrel (12:16:51 AM): "He was n-not, senpai."
Polk Kitsune (12:16:57 AM): "You weren't."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:16:58 AM): "...." Jin laughs as well.
kwikkidus (12:17:11 AM): Eyebrow quirk. "Oh... I see."
Hinoryu8 (12:17:13 AM): "Right, I was going to make Amado pay you 3000 yen."
Polk Kitsune (12:21:23 AM): "... You were about to get back to him for tossing you from that far high."
Sinisquirrel (12:21:27 AM): "Somehow, I doubt you were..."
Sinisquirrel (12:22:26 AM): "I'm sorry, Flunky-san, I... It was just a rumor I'd heard and... it's a bit of an obscure joke."
kwikkidus (12:23:22 AM): "A rumor about you persuing me? Is Miyamoto-chan saying stuff again?"
Sinisquirrel (12:23:34 AM): "Ah, no, that was my own joke..."
kwikkidus (12:24:06 AM): "So then, this has to do with Jin being gay?"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:24:23 AM): "Yes."
Sinisquirrel (12:24:25 AM): "Something like that..."
kwikkidus (12:25:45 AM): "So to summerize..." Point at Jin. "You're gay for Riku..." Point at Lily. "You confessed to him, he told you, and you decided to persue me..."
kwikkidus (12:25:57 AM): Point at Jin again. "And then you decided to go straight to have her to spite me?"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:26:21 AM): "Exactly."
Sinisquirrel (12:26:59 AM): "Quite."
kwikkidus (12:27:12 AM): "Hmm... although I seriously doubt it, it makes excellent news for the tabloids. I wonder what Miyamoto-chan and Ikuhara-chan are paying for stories these days..."
Sinisquirrel (12:28:01 AM): "Jin-san, do you think that girl earlier had anything to do with that?" The one that had stolen Flunky's camera-toting shtick.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:28:11 AM): "Doubtfully very much, since they came up with the rumor themselves."
kwikkidus (12:28:27 AM): He wanders off, muttering to himself. "Maybe Chizuma-chan is paying higher... I'll have to compare rates..."
Hinoryu8 (12:29:30 AM): "Anyway." Ryuuji shook his head. "I inexplicably, possibly due to bad writing, don't hold a grudge, so I'm gonna just head out."
Sinisquirrel (12:29:44 AM): "B-Bad... writing?"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:30:02 AM): "Whatever."
Sinisquirrel (12:32:32 AM): "Chizuma..." Lily gets a look of 'plotting' on her face.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:33:51 AM): "...just what're you planning?"
Hinoryu8 (12:34:09 AM): Ryuuji gets up, sidesteps a brick from the crumbling fourth wall, and leaves the room.
Sinisquirrel (12:34:17 AM): "Absolutely nothing." She fails at looking innocent. "Why do you ask?"
Polk Kitsune (12:34:30 AM): Casey sighed as he finished writing somethign on a piece of paper. "When you're out of here, Alastor, try to contact these guys." He handed over the note. "They might be able to buy you some time."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:34:58 AM): Alastor takes the paper. "I probably won't, but thanks anyway."
Polk Kitsune (12:35:47 AM): "Hey, you might be bad, but no one deserves what he'd do to you. Besides, losing a piece might be the best thing that can happen to him."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:36:10 AM): "...I won't bother asking how you know so much about him."
Sinisquirrel (12:36:21 AM): "C-Can I?"
Polk Kitsune (12:37:02 AM): "..." He gave a sigh. "He's my father."
Polk Kitsune (12:37:45 AM): "Nothing I like to bring up though."
Sinisquirrel (12:38:18 AM): "I... I'd guess... not." Wow... another Elemental Seal tied to the island...
Polk Kitsune (12:40:40 AM): "Been trying to stay away from the dude for a long time now."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:40:46 AM): "Oh, I don't believe you."
Sinisquirrel (12:41:10 AM): "... It will not hurt her?"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:43:07 AM): "...well, good luck. That's not a position I'd want to be in."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:43:54 AM): "Lily, we're not going to start this relationship with secret-keeping, are we?"
Sinisquirrel (12:44:49 AM): She sighs. "I do not intend to do anything, but merely wish to allude to some form of harm for comedic appeal. Now, if you'll kindly pull me away from that brick..."
Polk Kitsune (12:44:50 AM): "Good luck yourself. You'll need it." And with that, he headed out.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:45:18 AM): The brick hits Ryuuji instead.
