Viewtiful Rekk (12:14:10 AM): Jin sighs. "So I need to duel somebody else to qualify..."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:14:48 AM): He shoots a glance at Delilah.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:14:57 AM): "Hey, poorly disguised dragon. What about you?"
TheGymRat38 (12:15:03 AM): "I'm not a dragon!"
Y Ruler of Time (12:15:05 AM)
: "...Dragon?"
Sinisquirrel (12:15:09 AM): She sighs. "If I did not know that I owed him payment, I would not even consider speaking with him again..."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:15:23 AM)
: "Do my eyes look like knotholes to you?"
TheGymRat38 (12:15:33 AM): "A little, yeah."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:16:10 AM)
: "..." Jin shakes his head and mutters something under his breath. When he looks back up, his pupils have turned bright blue.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:16:12 AM): "How about now?"
TheGymRat38 (12:16:40 AM): "Don't be stupid, I can do that as well."
TheGymRat38 (12:16:47 AM)
: Her pupils become a dark red color.
TheGymRat38 (12:16:57 AM)
: And noticeably reptilian.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:16:58 AM)
: "...and this helps the 'not a dragon' case how?"
Y Ruler of Time (12:17:02 AM): "...Why is everyone on this island so messed up!?"
TheGymRat38 (12:17:03 AM): "ICELAND!"
TheGymRat38 (12:17:16 AM)
: Her eyes return to normal.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:17:18 AM)
: Jin palms his face.
TheGymRat38 (12:17:23 AM): "Go visit Iceland, we're all like this!"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:17:30 AM)
: His eyes return to normal.
TheGymRat38 (12:17:38 AM): "Its the glacial air!"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:17:39 AM)
: "I've been to Iceland. Nobody was like that."
TheGymRat38 (12:18:03 AM): "Its because you have knotholes for eyes obviously..."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:18:13 AM)
: "FINE."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:18:23 AM): Teeth being grit now. "Annoying Icelandic girl. Do you want to duel?"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:18:29 AM): *Icelandic
Sinisquirrel (12:18:34 AM): "Everyone is a little 'messed up,' Hawkeye-san."
TheGymRat38 (12:20:35 AM): "Let's save it for later angel boy, I'm looking for a monarch to beat up at the moment. I can't keep getting distracted."
TheGymRat38 (12:20:53 AM)
: "That afro'd bastard...I still owe him a beating."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:21:05 AM)
: Jin scoffs. "Whatever."
TheGymRat38 (12:21:27 AM): She marches over and grabs Tsukuyama by the shirt.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:21:37 AM)
: "GAH!"
TheGymRat38 (12:21:44 AM): "Tsukuyama, you encountered Gaius. Have you seen Zaborg as well?"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:21:59 AM)
: "Just when he got tossed through a wall!"
TheGymRat38 (12:22:08 AM): "Oh right, you were there."
TheGymRat38 (12:22:30 AM)
: "Can you show me where Gaius is? These idiotic monarchs have a mental link, and Gaius should be able to tell me where Zaborg is."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:22:31 AM)
: "...dude, we fought! How can you forget that!?"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:22:39 AM): "...No! Gaius is mine, y'crazy bitch!"
TheGymRat38 (12:23:09 AM): "I don't care about fighting Gaius, he's the only one of that bunch I can tolerate. I'm looking for Zaborg and he can tell me where to find him."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:24:08 AM)
: "Why th' hell should I tell you?!"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:24:16 AM): "You haven't done anything but insult me!"
TheGymRat38 (12:24:43 AM): "You monkeys are trying to beat the monarchs aren't you? Well I'm gunning for one of them, so right now we're on the same side! Do the math Tsukuyama!"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:25:22 AM)
: "Go to hell!"
TheGymRat38 (12:26:11 AM): "I'll take you with me!"
TheGymRat38 (12:26:20 AM)
: She shoves Amado backwards, releasing her grip on his shirt.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:26:46 AM): "Ngh!" Amado lands on his bum, but quickly gets up.
TheGymRat38 (12:28:14 AM): Delilah holds up her left hand and her fingernails extend into claws. "Tell me where he is or I'll gut you Tsukuyama!"
Sinisquirrel (12:28:41 AM)
: "He doesn't know, Delilah-san."
Y Ruler of Time (12:28:45 AM): "What in the-!?" Alex backs away from Delilah.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:28:49 AM): "Oh yeah?!" Amado brings up his cleaver...which is still badly damaged.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:28:50 AM): ...Crud.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:29:04 AM): "Oh, for God's sake..."
TheGymRat38 (12:29:10 AM): Delilah frowns and looks back at Lily. "Well why didn't he just say so?"
TheGymRat38 (12:29:19 AM): Her claws retract. "Men are such idiots sometimes..."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:29:35 AM)
: "Hey, shut up!"
TheGymRat38 (12:32:35 AM): Rolling her eyes, Delilah begins to walk away from the rest. "Why do I feel like I should be destroying somebody's hobby right now?"
Sinisquirrel (12:32:36 AM)
: Lily shrugs. It was either state the fact or have another unnecessary fight on their hands. "So..." She extends a hand to him. "Shall we?"
Y Ruler of Time (12:32:53 AM): Alex clutches his Duel Disk protectively.
TheGymRat38 (12:33:36 AM): She turns back for a moment. "Any of you seen a little girl about this tall." She gestured with her hand.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:33:40 AM)
: "Startin' to get sick of everybody stickin' it to me..." He grumbles, and takes Lily's hand.
Sinisquirrel (12:34:08 AM): She helps hoist him up while replying. "Not today."
Y Ruler of Time (12:34:42 AM): Alex observes this action with a raised eyebrow. 'I just know I'm going to hear more rumors...'
TheGymRat38 (12:34:57 AM): "Pity. Well maybe I should find the Little Talon before I rip Zaborg's afro off. She'd enjoy watching that..."
TheGymRat38 (12:35:01 AM)
: She wanders off again.
Y Ruler of Time (12:35:03 AM)
: 'One can only hope it's more amusing than Jin's little love octagon...'
Sinisquirrel (12:36:17 AM): "If she is in for the finals, I fear if she loses..."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:36:47 AM): "...I'm going to go find somebody else to duel." Jin mutters and walks away.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:54:14 AM): "...well I guess I could..." He pulls out his PDA and calls up somebody.
kwikkidus (12:55:38 AM): "...Reeh?" Ed answers the phone, putting it to his ear. "J...Jin?"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:55:59 AM): "Ed, are you in this tournament thing?"
kwikkidus (12:56:54 AM): "Y...yeah! Rival and I are.... tied, I think."
Sinisquirrel (12:57:24 AM): "Heck yeah, we are!" Radar hearing!
Viewtiful Rekk (12:57:25 AM): "...'rival'?"
Sinisquirrel (12:57:51 AM): "Like I'd ever let you go until I got back that last loss! Hmph!"
kwikkidus (12:58:00 AM): "Yeah! Rival and I are!" Nodnod.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:58:15 AM): "What the hell's a 'rival'?"
kwikkidus (12:58:23 AM): "Mylene is."
Y Ruler of Time (12:58:27 AM): "Ah..." Alex opens up his laptop.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:58:44 AM): "...That person who repairs Duel Disks?"
kwikkidus (12:58:47 AM): "Yep!"
Y Ruler of Time (12:58:48 AM): "...Ed, as in Edward Finklestein?" he appears to be...examining his notes.
Y Ruler of Time (12:59:15 AM): "He and Mylene Batolli refer to each other only as 'Rival'. Kinda like pet names."
Sinisquirrel (12:59:15 AM): "You should say my name correctly, rival. 'Mylene Elisabeth Batolli, Osiris Red GENIUS!'" There is laughter.
Y Ruler of Time (12:59:30 AM): "...Batolli does okay work, I guess."
kwikkidus (12:59:31 AM): "IT IS NOT A PET NAME!"
kwikkidus (1:00:22 AM): "B...besides, I'm busy trying to learn something right now! It's not easy and I've hit my head a lot and... Stuff!"
Sinisquirrel (1:01:17 AM): "Feh, you oughta give yourself a break before you break your skull, rival."
kwikkidus (1:01:30 AM): "N...no way!"
Y Ruler of Time (1:01:40 AM): Alex mouths 'Pet names.'
Viewtiful Rekk (1:01:41 AM): "ANYWAY."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:02:32 AM): "Ed, I need to get my last few points for this tournament."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:02:37 AM): "Duel me."
kwikkidus (1:02:43 AM): "...And you want to duel with... But Rival's a lot worse than me!"
Y Ruler of Time (1:02:50 AM): Alex...quirks an eyebrow.
Sinisquirrel (1:02:55 AM): "... ... ..." SEARING GLARE.
Viewtiful Rekk (1:03:16 AM): "...Fine, whatever. Where are you?"
kwikkidus (1:03:57 AM): "At the Red dorms! I can see you there if you want!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:04:12 AM): Jin hangs up and is immediately heading towards the Red dorm.
Y Ruler of Time (1:04:25 AM): "...You're going to an Osiris Red for a duel?"
Rakath Chaos (1:04:55 AM): Dawn is actively hanging upside down from one of the windows on the upper floor of the red dorm, by her knees.
Viewtiful Rekk (1:06:16 AM): "Ed's not a pushover. He's just..."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:06:22 AM): "...Got some other problems."
kwikkidus (1:06:30 AM): There's a loud CRASH from near the red dorm. "Reeeh...
Viewtiful Rekk (1:06:45 AM): Isabel meanwhile has an ice pack on her head. "Can you two keep it down? Seriously, my head hurts enough already...."
Sinisquirrel (1:06:49 AM): "Would you STOP that already?"
Y Ruler of Time (1:06:52 AM): "...If you say so," Alex turns to go in another direction. "Call me when you're done, I've got some points to gain myself."
kwikkidus (1:06:58 AM): "But... I know I can do it with just one more try!"
Rakath Chaos (1:07:00 AM): Loud noises mean... FUN! Dawn heads to investigate!
Sinisquirrel (1:07:19 AM): "Can't you just try later?"
kwikkidus (1:07:32 AM): "No! I'll forget!" Ed focuses REALLY hard,and in a beat of wings... This time he's hanging by his jacket in a tree. "BLAGH!!!" Flailing ensues.
Sinisquirrel (1:08:04 AM): "... good. That oughta hold you for a while." Mylene flops down on a patch of grass.
kwikkidus (1:08:13 AM): "...Help! I'm stuck!
Viewtiful Rekk (1:08:28 AM): "..." Groan. "I'm not gonna help you, 'cause you won't learn anything if I do!"
Rakath Chaos (1:08:37 AM): Dawn is behind Mylene, "What's the lil' one over there doing?"
Y Ruler of Time (1:08:54 AM): "Hang on, Ed! I'll help you down!" POSE!
kwikkidus (1:08:56 AM): "...So what am I supposed to do, FALL?"
Rakath Chaos (1:09:03 AM): Dawn still has Amado's Bokuto.
Sinisquirrel (1:09:35 AM): "Huh? He's--" Whoa. A kid, here? An ironic thought coming from the childlike-visaged blonde. "Uh... trying to do something he saw someone else do, and failing."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:10:01 AM): "...Ed...why are you in a tree...?" Hey look, it's Jin!
Y Ruler of Time (1:10:13 AM): "Ahup!" Fuji jumps...landing square on the branch Ed is entangled in.
Y Ruler of Time (1:10:48 AM): He reaches towards Ed. "Hang on, Ed, I've got you!" Creeeeeeeaaaaaaak...
Y Ruler of Time (1:11:02 AM): "..." Fuji looks down. "...That can't be good."
kwikkidus (1:11:05 AM): "...Ahh..." he waves at Jin. "I've gotta show you this!!!"
Rakath Chaos (1:11:17 AM): "Well... what's he trying to do?"
kwikkidus (1:11:22 AM): Ignoring Fuji, there's a focus... another beating of wings... and Ed ends up tumbling along the ground and into a wall.
kwikkidus (1:11:28 AM): "...reeh..."
Rakath Chaos (1:11:29 AM): "Other than fall out of a tree in a moment."
Y Ruler of Time (1:11:41 AM): CREEEEEEEEE-SNAP!
Sinisquirrel (1:11:42 AM): "Aw, some kind of flashy step thing."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:11:50 AM): "...you're trying to learn how to preform Wingbeat?"
kwikkidus (1:12:08 AM): "...Well... it's more trying to learn how to 'not crash.' I can use it fine."
Y Ruler of Time (1:12:14 AM): The branch falls to the grass...Fuji lands in a crouch, gets up, and POSES! "I'm OKAY!"
Rakath Chaos (1:12:23 AM): "Oh, this?" Dawn vanishes and appears in a much stabler branch.
kwikkidus (1:12:41 AM): "Eh..." Ed has been emasculated by a little girl. Hooray.
Rakath Chaos (1:13:22 AM): Dawn does the same over to Ed... "Why are you dressed like a student?"
kwikkidus (1:13:49 AM): "Because I am a student.
Viewtiful Rekk (1:14:37 AM): "..." Jin pinches the bridge of his nose. "While this is all quite interesting."
Y Ruler of Time (1:15:03 AM): "...AHahahahahahaha!!!!!" Fuji lets out a mighty laugh, realizing what's going through Dawn's mind.
Viewtiful Rekk (1:15:09 AM): "Ed, I need to qualify for the finals of this tournament. If you duel me, I'll help you afterwards ."
Rakath Chaos (1:15:46 AM): Dawn seems confused by what Ed says, "Why would someone my age be a student here?"
Y Ruler of Time (1:16:12 AM): "AAAHhahahahaahaha!!" Fuji plants his hands on his hips to continue laughing.
Sinisquirrel (1:16:47 AM): "He's not, kiddo."
kwikkidus (1:17:02 AM): ...You will?"
kwikkidus (1:17:14 AM): He jumps to his feet, grinning. "Alright!"
Rakath Chaos (1:17:22 AM): Dawn looks at Mylene, "You dun look much older than me either."
Sinisquirrel (1:17:48 AM): "..." Stab. Right through the heart. "Well. Looks can be deceiving."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:18:04 AM): "...get lost, rugrat."
Rakath Chaos (1:18:39 AM): "Are you talking to me or him?"
Y Ruler of Time (1:18:45 AM): "INDEED!" Fuji appears next to Mylene and Dawn. "Dawn-chan, you must learn to recognize people by traits other than their appearance!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:18:48 AM): "You."
kwikkidus (1:19:50 AM): "Come on... Let's go, Jin! The sooner we're done the sooner you can teach me! I'm supposed to lose right? How badly?"
Y Ruler of Time (1:19:53 AM): "For example, while Ed may possibly hold the record for shortest student in Duel Academy history, last I checked he had TWO girlfriends!" Thumbs-up and wink directed towards Ed.
kwikkidus (1:20:03 AM): "...Wait what?"
Rakath Chaos (1:20:31 AM): Dawn ignores Isabel, "Fuji-san, are they those two." Isabel and Mylene pointing happens.
Viewtiful Rekk (1:20:46 AM): "...don't just lose on purpose. Duel me for real."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:21:03 AM): "...My-chan, hold my ice bag, I have a professor to beat the shit out of."
Y Ruler of Time (1:21:06 AM): "VERY OBSERVANT DAWN-CHAN!" Thumbs-up and wink shift to Dawn.
Sinisquirrel (1:21:52 AM): "Put it on the ground, I got some poundin' t'do, too."
kwikkidus (1:22:28 AM): "Right! I'll do that!" He nods. "Let's... let's duel, Jin!"
Rakath Chaos (1:22:32 AM): "Must be a secret thing, they look angry Fuji-san."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:22:37 AM): "Fair enough." She drops the bag, and cracks her knuckles as she stands up.
Rakath Chaos (1:22:45 AM): Dawn has... pulled Amado's Bokuto out.
Y Ruler of Time (1:22:53 AM): "Oh..." he waves his hand dismissively, "Isabel-chan always looks angry. Mylene-chan half as often."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:23:08 AM): "....ugh, head really hurts..." She growls and sits back down.
Sinisquirrel (1:24:39 AM): "Listen, y'big oaf... She's not datin' him. I'm not datin' him. You ask rival there, he'll probably say dating is a kind of fruit."
Rakath Chaos (1:24:53 AM): Dawn looks between Mylene, Ed, and Isabel, and points her aquired Bokuto at Mylene, "You must be more effective at combat than them, you seem least injured."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:24:55 AM): "...he seriously does think that."
kwikkidus (1:25:06 AM): "I'll... go first. Alright?"
Sinisquirrel (1:25:37 AM): "... annnnd no. I just didn't fly into the fray."
Y Ruler of Time (1:25:43 AM): "Oh..." Fuji wags his finger at Mylene, "no need to be embarassed, Mylene-chan..."
kwikkidus (1:25:45 AM): "Reeh..." He looks at the hand he's dealt. "Al-alright! I can do this... I set a defender and end my turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:26:02 AM): "Draw."
Sinisquirrel (1:26:14 AM): "Who th' hell is embarrassed, I'm pissed off!" Rabid puppydog teeth!
Y Ruler of Time (1:26:53 AM): "It's alright, it's alright," he points a finger towards the sky. "FUJI-SENSEI UNDERSTANDS HIGH SCHOOL LOVE!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:26:55 AM): "Neither of us are with Ed, you pinhead. I've known him since I was 7!"
Rakath Chaos (1:27:05 AM): "Oh, how dull, I was hoping to find someone my size to spar with... Maybe..." Dawn puts back the Bokuto, and looks toward Ed.
kwikkidus (1:27:17 AM): "...Go for it, Jin! Kick my ass!"
kwikkidus (1:27:26 AM): "Or... wait. I can't root for you. You're the enemy."
Rakath Chaos (1:27:32 AM): Dawn instantly, at that line, dismisses this idea.
kwikkidus (1:27:33 AM): "RRRRR..."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:27:53 AM): "..." Jin sighs.
Y Ruler of Time (1:27:55 AM): Fuji appears to be going on a rant.
Viewtiful Rekk (1:28:11 AM): "White Dancer." (1100/1500)
Viewtiful Rekk (1:28:19 AM): "Attack his set!"
Sinisquirrel (1:28:19 AM): "... really, Isa-chan? I knew 'im when I was about... five 'r so."
kwikkidus (1:28:30 AM): "Giant Rat, deflect the attack!" (1400/1450)
Viewtiful Rekk (1:28:32 AM): "...seriously?"
Rakath Chaos (1:28:41 AM): Dawn holds out a hand to Mylene, "I'm Dawn."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:28:47 AM): (7650)
Y Ruler of Time (1:28:49 AM): "I had a couple girlfriends while I went to the academy too! What can I say, athletic, relatively good grades, and back then I was rising through the ranks pretty quickly. Of course that was before my sophomore slump..."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:28:58 AM): "Two reverses. End turn."
Y Ruler of Time (1:29:23 AM): "And anyways, nowadays no matter how much you impress a girl over summer, they don't want to come to a volcanic island that gets periodically attacked by super-powered evil beings..."
Sinisquirrel (1:29:24 AM): "Yeah, we used to be fr--" Mylene looks down at Dawn. "Uh, hi. I'm Mylene. Mylene Batolli." She shakes. Fuji is IGNORED.
kwikkidus (1:29:40 AM): "Alright then! DRAW!" He draws.
kwikkidus (1:29:55 AM): "Summon - Senju of the Thousand Hands!"
Rakath Chaos (1:30:05 AM): Despite what Fuji said, Dawn still thinks the both of them are somewhere around her age. As since the whole 'date' thing is suspect, Fuji himself is now suspect.
kwikkidus (1:30:13 AM): "And that puts Doriado into my hand... It's time to duel now!"
kwikkidus (1:30:29 AM): "Senju! Destroy the White Dancer!"
Rakath Chaos (1:30:30 AM): Dawn shakes Mylene's hand. Then pulls her hand back, "Shaking hands is WEIRD."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:30:49 AM): White Dancer is destroyed. (7250)
Sinisquirrel (1:30:58 AM): "Huh?" Did I shake too hard again? The blonde flexes her hand.
kwikkidus (1:31:17 AM): "Huh... Two reverse cards, and my turn's done!
Viewtiful Rekk (1:31:22 AM): "Draw."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:31:51 AM): "Swift Angel Hermes." (1600/1000)
Viewtiful Rekk (1:32:11 AM): "Hermes attacks Senju."
kwikkidus (1:32:18 AM): (7800) "Khh...!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:32:28 AM): "One reverse. End turn."
Rakath Chaos (1:32:48 AM): Dawn smiles, "Generally I like to greet people with a test of ability."
kwikkidus (1:33:01 AM): "Draw!"
kwikkidus (1:33:21 AM): "Homunculus the Alchemic Being! Attack mode!"
Sinisquirrel (1:33:43 AM): "S'that some magic thing?"
Rakath Chaos (1:33:55 AM): "No, armed combat."
kwikkidus (1:33:58 AM): "Now then..." He claps his hands. "Homonculus changes to Earth!"
kwikkidus (1:34:17 AM): "Next I activate a spell card! It's called Doriado's Blessing! Sorry... but you told me not to hold back!"
Sinisquirrel (1:34:20 AM): "Ah. I see. Good." Because, really, there was enough magic floating around.
Viewtiful Rekk (1:34:31 AM): "I did tell you that."
kwikkidus (1:34:34 AM): "I tribute Giant Rat for Elemental Mistress Doriado, in defense mode!"
kwikkidus (1:34:51 AM): "Homonculus! Attack!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:34:52 AM): A black hole explodes into existence around Doriado and sucks her in.
Viewtiful Rekk (1:35:01 AM): "Counter Trap - Zero Hole."
kwikkidus (1:35:04 AM): "REEH?!"
Rakath Chaos (1:35:06 AM): "My magic isn't all that good... unless I can apply it to combat."
Rakath Chaos (1:35:10 AM): "Like Wingbeat."
kwikkidus (1:35:24 AM): "B...but..."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:35:35 AM): "By paying 1000 life points." (6250) "I can destroy a monster when it's summoned."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:35:51 AM): Hermes disappears.
kwikkidus (1:36:14 AM): "Huh? But... Homonculus was gonna' hit it..."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:36:22 AM): "I then tribute Hermes for Voltanis the Adjudicator!" Ice shoots from the field, and Voltanis shoots from the ground. (2800/1400)
kwikkidus (1:36:32 AM): "WHA?! But.. .but...!!!"
Sinisquirrel (1:36:40 AM): "I guess ev'ryone's got their specialty... and HAH! Way to kick that fairy to the curb, Jin!"
kwikkidus (1:37:12 AM): "Hey, Zero Hole isn't a counter trap!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:37:16 AM): "For every monster tributed to summon Voltanis, I can destroy 1 card on the field!" Voltanis crashes his staff down on the left of Ed's reverses.
Viewtiful Rekk (1:37:26 AM): "...yes it is."
kwikkidus (1:37:30 AM): "...No, it isn't."
Rakath Chaos (1:37:41 AM): Dawn finds something oddly familiar about the child's cards. (( /motg reference ))
kwikkidus (1:38:08 AM): "...Or it is..."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:38:17 AM): Jin holds up the card. There's a little arrow symbol on it.
kwikkidus (1:38:32 AM): Ed chains the left of his reverses. "Fine then... but you're not touching my life points! Spiritual Earth art, Kurogane!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:38:39 AM): "Tch."
kwikkidus (1:40:52 AM): "That lets me tribute my Homonculus... and revive Giant Rat in defense mode!"
kwikkidus (1:41:06 AM): "And since it's still my turn... I can say I end it right now!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:41:09 AM): "...Tch."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:41:12 AM): "Draw!"
Rakath Chaos (1:41:37 AM): Dawn looks at Mylene, "What's your specialty?"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:41:40 AM): "Covering Angel Sachiel!" (1800/1000)
Viewtiful Rekk (1:41:50 AM): "Sachiel, attack the Rat!"
kwikkidus (1:42:32 AM): "...The rat is destroyed..." Another appears. "But that won't stop him!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:42:44 AM): "Sachiel's effect."
kwikkidus (1:42:48 AM): "...Huh?"
Sinisquirrel (1:43:07 AM): "Well, I always say 'technology,' but I guess 'machines' in general is more to the point."
Y Ruler of Time (1:43:19 AM): "Ooh...this is going to be ugly..." Fuji winces.
Viewtiful Rekk (1:43:31 AM): Sachiel flings up his cloak, revealing his mechanical body. He points both hands at the rat and a black hole shoots out and anegulfs it.
kwikkidus (1:43:41 AM): "...O...Oh. That effect."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:43:59 AM): "By paying 1000 points, I can activate one Counter Trap in my grave. So by paying another 1000 points, I activate Zero Hole." (4250)
Viewtiful Rekk (1:44:13 AM): "Afterwards, that trap is removed from play."
Rakath Chaos (1:44:14 AM): Dawn arcs an eyebrow, "So... you make things? Are they for combat?" One track mind.
Viewtiful Rekk (1:45:32 AM): "Voltanis, direct attack!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:45:53 AM): Ice shoots up from the ground and flies at Ed.
Y Ruler of Time (1:46:05 AM): (gahahaha)
kwikkidus (1:46:10 AM): (5400)
Sinisquirrel (1:46:20 AM): (( I didn't know it changed card types, either. ))
Viewtiful Rekk (1:46:32 AM): "End turn."
kwikkidus (1:46:51 AM): "Draw..."
kwikkidus (1:47:18 AM): "No more games." He sets a Homunculus on the field, and it bursts forth.
Sinisquirrel (1:47:33 AM): "Well..." Mylene scratched her head. She wasn't sure how she wanted to put it... "They're not specifically for fighting."
kwikkidus (1:47:53 AM): "United We Stand. Targeting my Homunculus."
kwikkidus (1:51:33 AM): "Now then... Homunculus attacks Sachiel." Point!
Viewtiful Rekk (1:52:05 AM): Sachiel is destroyed. (3450)
kwikkidus (1:52:09 AM): "...My turn ends!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:52:13 AM): "Draw."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:52:37 AM): "I activate the White Dancer in my grave."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:53:08 AM): "By removing it from play, I can reduce the level of a monster in my hand by one. Come forth, Goddess of Light - Tethys!" (2400/1800)
Viewtiful Rekk (1:54:36 AM): "Followed by Monster Reborn to revive Sachiel." The cloaked angel appears again. (1800/1000)
Viewtiful Rekk (1:55:27 AM): "Voltanis attacks Homunculus!" Shards of ice fly at the powered-up monster.
kwikkidus (1:56:05 AM): (5200)
kwikkidus (1:56:13 AM): (4800)
Viewtiful Rekk (1:56:14 AM): "Sachiel! Tethys! Direct attacks!"
kwikkidus (1:56:28 AM): (2400) (600) "Reeh... I know I'm supposed to be losing but... ow...
Viewtiful Rekk (1:56:37 AM): "End turn."
kwikkidus (1:56:59 AM): "Draw!
Rakath Chaos (1:56:59 AM): Dawn looks up at the duel, "...You're sure he's older than me?"
Sinisquirrel (1:57:13 AM): "Yeah, it surprises me, too."
kwikkidus (1:57:15 AM): "Keheh... Reeh..." Thud. "I fold."
Rakath Chaos (1:57:24 AM): "I mean with that stupid noise and the 'ows' from a regular card game..."
Rakath Chaos (1:57:32 AM): Not buying it... still.
Y Ruler of Time (1:58:02 AM): "Ah..." Fuji shakes his head and sighs. "You fought well, Ed! Even though you lost, you made a good showing against an Obelisk blue student!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:58:41 AM): "...he barely touched me...."
kwikkidus (1:58:44 AM): "...But I... lost really realy bad..."
Sinisquirrel (1:58:57 AM): "Trust me, if he were any younger we would'a never met."
Y Ruler of Time (1:58:58 AM): "NUMBERS DO NOT MATTER!"
kwikkidus (1:59:01 AM): "Though..." he thinks. "I'm not sure that Zero Hole worked that way. There was a puzzle about one of those..."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:59:01 AM): Jin shakes his head. "Well, thank you Ed. That puts me at a high enough level for the finals."
Sinisquirrel (1:59:05 AM): "... which might've been a GOOD thing..."
Y Ruler of Time (1:59:09 AM): "I SENSED HIS SPIRIT BURNING THROUGHOUT THE FIGHT!"
Y Ruler of Time (1:59:13 AM): FLEX!
kwikkidus (1:59:23 AM): "But I didn't say anything 'cause I was supposed to lose." Dis-Belt go! Ed goes onto knee!
Viewtiful Rekk (1:59:28 AM): "...shut up."
Sinisquirrel (1:59:28 AM): "GH!" Eye shielding!
Viewtiful Rekk (1:59:43 AM): "Ngh..." Jin's drains him as well. "...getting really sick of that."
Rakath Chaos (2:00:17 AM): Dawn nods at Mylene's comment. Granted, that just feeds Dawn idea of both of them being younger than they are.
Rakath Chaos (2:00:58 AM): Dawn looks at the two getting mana drained, "Did your friend listen to that David guy and his stupid Dis-Belt sales pitch?"
kwikkidus (2:01:29 AM): "...Well... yu're done. Right?"
Sinisquirrel (2:02:05 AM): "Eh, it's a bit more complicated than that..." After all, she had one on, too, and they hadn't gotten it JUST for the tournament.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:05:24 AM): "More or less."
kwikkidus (2:05:28 AM): "...And uhh... so how do you do it right...? I only saw it a few times..."
Rakath Chaos (2:05:44 AM): "Well... so many people wear them... it makes no sense," Dawn mutters.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:06:00 AM): "..." Jin takes his Duel Disk off and puts it on the ground. "Alright, watch closely."
kwikkidus (2:06:09 AM): "Right!"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:06:50 AM): "First, focus your Duel Energy into your feet. Too much and you'll go flying out of control. Too little, and you'll barely lift off the ground."
Sinisquirrel (2:07:45 AM): "A lot of people want the rare stuff Alastor offered. Others just want the title..." She scratched her head again. "But we've just been fighting each other, so..."
kwikkidus (2:08:07 AM): "...Right..." He focuses."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:08:14 AM): "Then, focus directly on your destination..."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:08:35 AM): With the sound of a pair of wings beating, Jin shoots forward and lands on the Osiris Red roof.
kwikkidus (2:08:49 AM): "...Rrrreeehh..." He squints, beating of wings, and Ed lands behind Mylene. "BOO!"
Rakath Chaos (2:09:00 AM): Dawn is standing next to Jin.
Sinisquirrel (2:09:04 AM): Mylene's fist FLIES out into Ed's gut.
kwikkidus (2:09:11 AM): "GHH!" Thud.
Y Ruler of Time (2:09:27 AM): "AH-hahahhahahahahaha!!!!!!!" Fuji rolls on the ground, crying tears of mirth.
Sinisquirrel (2:09:32 AM): "I TOLD YOU NOT TO DO THAT!"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:09:33 AM): "..."
Y Ruler of Time (2:09:36 AM): "OH, tough love is so fun to watch!"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:09:41 AM): "C'mon guys...headache here..."
Sinisquirrel (2:09:44 AM): "SHUT UP! IT'S JUST TOUGH, NO LOVE!"
kwikkidus (2:09:48 AM): "Kgh... hurts...."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:09:59 AM): "...My-chan, seriously...."
Sinisquirrel (2:10:16 AM): "Nnnggjhfhf! I know, I know... sorry..."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:10:29 AM): "...right, well." He does it again and is back on the ground.
Rakath Chaos (2:10:59 AM): Dawn follows Jin again, probably due to boredom.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:11:00 AM): "It's hard to get used to the speed at first, so the best thing to do is just get experience."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:11:18 AM): "If you get the hang of single steps, then you can focus on things like chaining steps together."
Rakath Chaos (2:11:40 AM): Dawn beats Jin to the punch as it is, and does a chain of wingbeats around the grounds.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:12:02 AM): "..." Jin sighs. "Little showoff..."
Sinisquirrel (2:12:18 AM): "..." Mylene looks over at the 'master' and the 'apprentice' and sighs, flopping next to Isabel. "I hate magic."
kwikkidus (2:12:26 AM): "...I see... Alright then!"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:12:48 AM): "...I can teach you, if you want."
Sinisquirrel (2:13:02 AM): "No... you can't."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:13:05 AM): "S'not that hard. Just takes a hell of a lot of practice."
Y Ruler of Time (2:13:24 AM): Fuji appears next to Mylene. "If you hate magic, I can teach you a different method of matching your-" he theatrically clears his throat and winks - "rival."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:13:26 AM): "Mom taught me, I can teach you."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:13:35 AM): "...don't you have some weight to lift?"
Rakath Chaos (2:13:36 AM): "Its not that hard," Dawn is on the other side of Mylene from Fuji.
Y Ruler of Time (2:14:01 AM): "Not true, Dawn-chan!" Fuji stands and raises a finger.
Sinisquirrel (2:14:02 AM): "..." Mylene is very uncomfortable where this is leading. "You have to be able... to do it to do it."
Y Ruler of Time (2:14:30 AM): "Indeed, Mylene-chan is correct! Not all humans are capable of using their Duel Energy. Take me, for example!"
Rakath Chaos (2:15:11 AM): "Huh? I thought those without spirit abilities were hired as guards with weird hair."
Y Ruler of Time (2:15:26 AM): "MY MUSCLES BELIEVE YOU ARE LYING!"
Sinisquirrel (2:15:44 AM): "M'dad had me talk to this one guy one time, an' it was nothin'. Not a thing. He said my other talents probably took up that spot."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:15:53 AM): Isabel throws the bag. "SHUT THE HELL UP, GOD!"
Rakath Chaos (2:16:10 AM): Dawn Bokutos the bag.
Sinisquirrel (2:16:21 AM): "Which was a nice way of puttin' it..."
kwikkidus (2:16:44 AM): "...Reeh..."
Sinisquirrel (2:17:37 AM): "I'm not worried 'bout it, though!" Points at Ed! "Because I don't need it to defeat the likes of him!"
Y Ruler of Time (2:17:38 AM): "Your father must indeed be a wise man, Mylene-chan!" he raises a finger towards the sky, "Not everyone may be capable of these Duel Energy techniques, but it is my belief that all humans are capable of the same level of potential!"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:17:45 AM): "...My-chan, it ain't like this stuff is ingrained into your blood type or something. I mean, duh, it's harder for some people than for others, but it's not a 'can' or 'can't' thing."
Y Ruler of Time (2:18:03 AM): He's going on another rant again, apparently.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:18:21 AM): "...eh, whatever...." She picks up the ice bag again.
Sinisquirrel (2:18:35 AM): "I'm not gonna discuss it with Muscles here around anyway."
Rakath Chaos (2:18:37 AM): "Well... I wasn't good at it when I started, but now I'm good..."
Y Ruler of Time (2:18:41 AM): "YES! We have only to find the path which leads to our fullest potential, and have the dedicated heart and soul to walk down it! FIERCELY!"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:18:58 AM): "...dude...please...shut up..."
Y Ruler of Time (2:19:12 AM): "YOUR FUJI-SENSEI IS GIVING A LESSON!"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:19:30 AM): Isabel is clutching her head with both hands now.
Sinisquirrel (2:19:35 AM): "Your lesson is just one sakura petal shy of being gay!"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:19:51 AM): A few petals float by.
Y Ruler of Time (2:20:02 AM): "....." Tears stream down Fuji's face.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:20:10 AM): Jin and Ohka chuckle.
Y Ruler of Time (2:20:19 AM): "My...lesson..."
Sinisquirrel (2:20:21 AM): "... thaaaat's it. I'm gettin' outta here." Mylene picks up her bag and starts to trundle off.
Y Ruler of Time (2:20:28 AM): "IS ALMOST AS GOOD AS ONE OF ICHIROU-SENSEI'S!?"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:20:51 AM): Ichirou kicks a door open. "Who set off my highlights?!"
Y Ruler of Time (2:21:01 AM): "OH, I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO PROUD!" Aaaaaand the shirt's come off.
Sinisquirrel (2:21:18 AM): Not looking back, not looking back, not looking back, not looking back!
Viewtiful Rekk (2:21:25 AM): "And by highlights, I mean the chip in my hat the releases a small electric shock whenever it picks up somebody mentioning my name."
Rakath Chaos (2:21:36 AM): Dawn puts away the Bokuto.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:22:04 AM): "...dude, really? Ichirou! Ichirou! Ichirou! Ichirou!"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:22:42 AM): "NNNNANAHAGH!" Ichirou stumbles about like an idiot, both hands on his head.
Rakath Chaos (2:25:18 AM): Dawn appears in front of her father, "Father. I promise it won't be used unless they are really, really, really evil? PLEASE."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:25:35 AM): "..."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:26:06 AM): Ichirou thinks...and thinks...and thinks....
Rakath Chaos (2:26:18 AM): "I mean, like, stories from 10 years ago evil."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:26:31 AM): "Hey, Miss Batolli!"
Sinisquirrel (2:27:01 AM): She's NOT turning around. "WHAAAT!?"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:27:09 AM): "...turn around!"
Sinisquirrel (2:27:13 AM): "NO!"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:27:14 AM): "Fuji, put your damn shirt back on!"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:27:47 AM): "Oh, screw it." He takes Dawn by the hand and walks over to her.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:27:50 AM): "Dawn, gimme your Duel Disk."
Rakath Chaos (2:28:11 AM): Dawn nods and vanishes.
Rakath Chaos (2:28:18 AM): Then reappears a few moments later with the thing.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:28:30 AM): He hands it to Mylene.
Sinisquirrel (2:28:35 AM): "Huh?"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:29:10 AM): "Make this into a non-magic weapon, and you can skip my class for the next two weeks."
Rakath Chaos (2:30:38 AM): "How is a non-magic weapon to help me with things like Gaius around? I couldn't help fight it when that guy with the Green dragon spirit, that boy in the tree, Fuji-san, and I ran into it this morning."
Sinisquirrel (2:30:57 AM): "... ..." I could use the time to work on Rush... "... all right. I'll message the both of you when it's done so we can make sure she knows how to use it."
Sinisquirrel (2:31:43 AM): "And, kid... you haven't seen me make a 'non-magical' weapon." Eyeping.
Y Ruler of Time (2:32:03 AM): "I HAVE!" his shirt's back on.
Y Ruler of Time (2:32:15 AM): "...It kind of stung."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:33:30 AM): There, now Dawn stops bugging me, and I don't owe Suou anything! Hah! I'm an awesome parent!
Rakath Chaos (2:33:44 AM): "But... I was hoping for a claw... a magic claw of some kind..."
Y Ruler of Time (2:34:15 AM): "I could teach Dawn-chan martial arts!"
Rakath Chaos (2:34:26 AM): "I know martial arts, that's not the issue."
Sinisquirrel (2:34:29 AM): "Claw, huh..."
Y Ruler of Time (2:34:31 AM): "REAL martial arts!"
Rakath Chaos (2:34:35 AM): "The issue is I'm nine and people are bigger than me."
Rakath Chaos (2:35:10 AM): Dawn tugs on Ichirou's sleeve, "You agree mommy could kill Fuji-san, even if he is really strong, right?"
Y Ruler of Time (2:35:22 AM): "HAHA!"
Rakath Chaos (2:36:39 AM): There's a look in Dawn's eye, it should remind Ichirou of someone he had a one night stand with one time. "Are you laughing at my mother's abilities?"
Sinisquirrel (2:36:53 AM): Mylene's muttering to herself. "A duel claw... with charged...? Yeah... That'd be pretty neat..."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:37:09 AM): "..."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:37:15 AM): "...Fuji...don't laugh about her mom..."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:37:22 AM): "For all our sake's..."
Y Ruler of Time (2:37:36 AM): "If Ichirou-sensei produced a child with this woman..." Fuji swings his arms in a negative motion. "Then HEELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL NO!"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:37:47 AM): Ichirou probably looks as close to scared as anybody there will ever see.
Rakath Chaos (2:38:46 AM): Dawn looks calmer, calmer is good here, very good.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:40:45 AM): Ichirou lets out a sigh of relief.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:43:32 AM): -------------------------------------------------------------------
