Viewtiful Rekk (2:00:17 PM): ---------------------------------------------------------------
Viewtiful Rekk (2:02:01 PM): "Hrm..." Jo mutters as she turns over the silver wristband in her hands. "I mean...if I did well in a tournament like this, that'd make dad and big brother proud, right...? But if it's against the rules..."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:02:12 PM): As she says this, she heads for one of the Obelisk dorm's restrooms.
Y Ruler of Time (2:02:52 PM): And runs right into a three-meter high being in gold and brown armor, with arms long enough that its knuckles practically touch the ground.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:03:37 PM): "...." Blink blink. Lookj up. Stare.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:03:43 PM): "...A-adonis-sempai...?"
Y Ruler of Time (2:04:12 PM): "State your business, small human," Granmarg booms out.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:04:39 PM): "A-ah! I...I just wanted to...y-y'know..." She gestures at the door that he's blocking.
Y Ruler of Time (2:04:56 PM): "None shall pass."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:05:32 PM): "B-but...why not?!"
Y Ruler of Time (2:06:15 PM): "I have been informed that through these gates resides a 'porcelain throne.' I have taken it as my duty to guard this throne from outsiders."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:06:38 PM): "P-porcelain...it's just the bathroom!"
Y Ruler of Time (2:07:27 PM): "..." Granmarg takes a bit before responding. "This term is unfamilar to me."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:07:49 PM): "...W-well I'm not gonna explain it to you!"
Y Ruler of Time (2:08:15 PM): "Then there is no further need for conversation. Move along."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:09:15 PM): "...Mmph..." She glances around. She pulls out her PDA and types something in quickly, before shoving it into Granmarg's hands. The shown page is: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Washroom
Y Ruler of Time (2:11:29 PM): "..." Granmarg stares at the page for a bit...before attempting to scroll down. CRUNCH. "..."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:12:26 PM): "...." Jo lets out something that may have been words, crushed into an inaudible squeak by pure mortification.
Y Ruler of Time (2:13:26 PM): Granmarg returns the somewhat flattened device to Jo. "My apologies. I am still having difficulty operating human devices."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:13:45 PM): "I-it's okay...." She takes it back. "Can I go in now?"
Y Ruler of Time (2:13:56 PM): "No."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:15:28 PM): "Why not?!"
Y Ruler of Time (2:15:57 PM): "I must protect the throne."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:16:29 PM): "..." Small groan. "...okay...how can I convince you to move...?"
Y Ruler of Time (2:17:12 PM): "That is simple. I must be defeated in a test of strength. After all, one who is capable of defeating a Monarch is surely worthy of the throne."
(2:17:15 PM) kwikkidus has left the room.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:17:59 PM): "B-but...I'm small, and you're...huge!"
Y Ruler of Time (2:18:25 PM): "That would be an advantage on my part, yes."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:20:19 PM): "...well, um...this is Duel Academy...so...what if I, y'know...dueled you instead?" She certainly had better chances than if she tried fighting him.
Y Ruler of Time (2:21:13 PM): ".............................................This is acceptable."
Y Ruler of Time (2:23:06 PM): Granmarg raises one of his arms to chest height, and a rocky Duel Disk sprouts from his forearm.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:23:53 PM): "...o-okay then." She reaches into her bag and pulls out her own Duel Disk.
Y Ruler of Time (2:24:40 PM): Granmarg raises his other hand to point a large finger at the Dis-Belt in Jo's hand. "That band. Put it on."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:25:14 PM): "Whuh? This?" She looks at him. "...Uh, but, why...? A-are you a part of that tournament thing...?"
Y Ruler of Time (2:25:28 PM): "That is correct."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:25:47 PM): "Erm...well, okay, I guess..." She puts the band on her arm. It clicks into place.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:26:32 PM): She activates her Duel Disk. ...hope this goes by quickly...
Viewtiful Rekk (2:26:56 PM): "Draw!" She draws five, plus one more.
Y Ruler of Time (2:27:32 PM): Granmarg takes five cards from his deck in turn.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:28:36 PM): "...Set one monster. End turn."
Y Ruler of Time (2:28:45 PM): "Draw."
Y Ruler of Time (2:29:56 PM): "One monster in defense mode. One card facedown."
Y Ruler of Time (2:29:58 PM): "End turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:30:11 PM): "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:31:06 PM): "I'll summon Future Samurai in attack mode!" A samurai in blue and white garb appears. (1600/1200)
Viewtiful Rekk (2:31:18 PM): "And then I'll set two cards face down...and end my turn."
Y Ruler of Time (2:31:25 PM): "Draw."
Y Ruler of Time (2:34:29 PM): "Activate facedown card, Rock Bombardment," Granmarg pulls his deck from his Duel Disk and fans it out.
Y Ruler of Time (2:34:55 PM): "By sending one Rock-type monster from my deck to the graveyard, I deal 500 direct damage to the opponent."
Y Ruler of Time (2:35:15 PM): Rockface Carving slides into his graveyard.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:36:00 PM): Jo is pelted by rocks. "Mmph!" (7500)
Y Ruler of Time (2:37:07 PM): "Next, I remove Rockface Carving from play," he holds the card up, and it crumbles to dust.
Y Ruler of Time (2:37:39 PM): "This allows me to Special Summon Gigantes (1900/1300)," an orange-skinned ogre appears on the field, wielding a large club,
Viewtiful Rekk (2:39:23 PM): "I...I see..."
Y Ruler of Time (2:39:29 PM): "Gigantes, attack Future Samurai," the ogre charges, swinging its club.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:40:41 PM): The samurai is crushed. (7200)
Y Ruler of Time (2:41:20 PM): "One monster in defense position. End turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:41:37 PM): "Draw..."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:43:05 PM): Future Samurai's spirit appears and shoots back to Jo's deck.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:43:14 PM): "I return the only monster in my grave to my deck..."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:43:21 PM): "Summon - Exodios the Ultimate Forbidden God!"
Y Ruler of Time (2:44:09 PM): "...The power of a God, bestowed upon a small human child?"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:44:23 PM): "Aheh...w-well, kinda, I guess..."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:45:27 PM): "I just saw it at the card shop, and my dad let me buy it..." During this explanation, the massive spellcaster has appeared on the field. (?/0)
Y Ruler of Time (2:46:05 PM): "...Gods can be bought in a card shop? What kind of strange world do these humans live in...?"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:46:08 PM): "A-anyway! I sacrifice Emissary of the Afterlife!" The face down monster disappears. "Summon - Hell Kaiser Dragon!"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:46:31 PM): (2400/1500)
Viewtiful Rekk (2:46:57 PM): "When Emissary is sent from the field to the grave, we can both add 1 level 3 or lower Normal Monster from our deck to our hands..." She fans out her deck.
Y Ruler of Time (2:47:30 PM): "No such monster exists in my deck."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:48:36 PM): She holds up Left Arm of the Forbidden One.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:49:02 PM): "E-Exodios attacks your latest defender!" She fans out her deck again.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:50:05 PM): "When Exodios attacks, I can send one monster from my deck to my grave...and his ATK increases by 1000 for every normal monster in my grave!"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:50:35 PM): She holds up Left Leg of the Forbidden One and places it into her grave. Exodios flings a ball of fire at the set monster. (1000/0)
Y Ruler of Time (2:51:42 PM): The fireball is deflected by a half-serpentine spiritual being that appears to be garbed in a tribal headdress. "Great Spirit withstands the attack (500/1500)."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:52:08 PM): "A-ah crud..." (6700)
Viewtiful Rekk (2:52:55 PM): "W-well, I guess Hell Kaiser will attack Great Spirit..."
Y Ruler of Time (2:53:26 PM): This time the Rock-type monster is incinerated by the stream of flame that washes over it.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:54:57 PM): "End turn..."
Y Ruler of Time (2:55:08 PM): "Draw."
Y Ruler of Time (2:56:21 PM): "Activate spell card, Hammer Shot," a tremendous mallet descends from the air. "The monster on the field with the highest attack strength is now destroyed."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:56:54 PM): Chthonian Emperor Dragon is bashed on the head. It slumps over and shatters.
Y Ruler of Time (2:57:25 PM): "Gigantes," the beast lumbers forward, "destroy Exodios."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:57:47 PM): Gigantes's club strikes a glowing pane of glass.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:57:52 PM): "Go, Holy Barrier Mirror Force!"
Viewtiful Rekk (3:00:53 PM): "Uh, but, anyway...Gigantes would been destroyed..."
Viewtiful Rekk (3:01:00 PM): Exodios stands at (2000/0)
Y Ruler of Time (3:01:41 PM): "It matters little. I place one monster in defense position and end my turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (3:01:58 PM): "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (3:02:39 PM): "I summon Blazewing Butterfly!" A flaming butterfly appears. (1000/1000)
Viewtiful Rekk (3:03:07 PM): "Butterfly! Attack his newest set! Blazewing Spiral!" The butterfly flaps its wings and sends a gust of fire at the set.
Y Ruler of Time (3:04:01 PM): The monster flips up to reveal a statue of green stone bricks, depicting a tremendous head and two hands (300/2000).
Y Ruler of Time (3:04:28 PM): "Stone Statue of the Aztecs resists this attack, and furthermore..."
Viewtiful Rekk (3:04:39 PM): Jo watches as the spiral hits the statue...and flies right back at her.
Viewtiful Rekk (3:04:51 PM): "G-gaaah!" (4700)
Y Ruler of Time (3:05:03 PM): "Damage dealt by Stone Statue of the Aztecs when it is attacked is doubled."
Viewtiful Rekk (3:05:52 PM): "W-well, Exodios, attack it!" She fans out her deck and holds up Right Arm. Exodios flings a much bigger fireball at the statue. (3000/0)
Y Ruler of Time (3:06:17 PM): The statue is engulfed in flame, and melts under the tremendous heat.
Viewtiful Rekk (3:07:03 PM): "End turn..."
Y Ruler of Time (3:12:55 PM): "Draw."
Y Ruler of Time (3:15:02 PM): "One defender. Two reverses. End turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (3:16:30 PM): "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (3:17:14 PM): "Special Summon Gemini Avatar!"
Y Ruler of Time (3:18:20 PM): "Special Summon...?"
Viewtiful Rekk (3:18:30 PM): (600/300) "I can special summon Gemini Avatar from my hand if I have at least one Gemini Monster on my field...I can tribute my Avatar to return a Gemini monster on my field to my deck..."
Viewtiful Rekk (3:18:35 PM): Both the Avatar and Butterfly disappear.
Viewtiful Rekk (3:20:01 PM): "Special Summon - Dark Valkyria!" A purple-skinned angel appears. (1800/1050)
Viewtiful Rekk (3:21:34 PM): "Dark Valkyria - Second Summon!" The Valkyrie creates an orb of light in her hand and immediately throws it at Granmarg's monster.
Y Ruler of Time (3:23:45 PM): "Sangan is destroyed," Granmarg declares as the three-eyed creature is blown apart.
Y Ruler of Time (3:24:05 PM): "I add Gamma the Magnet Warrior from my deck to my hand," he holds up the indicated monster.
Viewtiful Rekk (3:25:03 PM): ...Magnet Warriors.... Jo frowns. "Dark Valkyria, attack his other monster!"
Y Ruler of Time (3:26:05 PM): As Valkyria blasts at Granmarg's remaining monster, the card flips up, and a cackling black blob shoots from the revealed vase.
Y Ruler of Time (3:26:34 PM): "Morphing Jar (700/500)," Granmarg declares, before the vase shatters. He discards his one card before drawing five.
Viewtiful Rekk (3:26:38 PM): "..."
Viewtiful Rekk (3:26:47 PM): Jo shows her hand: Left Arm of the Forbidden One, Exodia the Forbidden One, Right Arm of the Forbidden One.
Viewtiful Rekk (3:27:08 PM): Exodios bellows as power shoots into it. (6000/0)
Y Ruler of Time (3:27:16 PM): "..."
Viewtiful Rekk (3:27:42 PM): She then draws five.
Viewtiful Rekk (3:28:18 PM): She sets one card. "End turn."
Y Ruler of Time (3:28:31 PM): "Afraid to attack?"
Viewtiful Rekk (3:30:22 PM): "W-well...my monster has 6000 ATK, and if you have Magic Cylinder or something..."
Y Ruler of Time (3:30:36 PM): "I understand. Draw."
Y Ruler of Time (3:32:40 PM): "...Though you should know. I do not defend in that manner."
Y Ruler of Time (3:32:47 PM): "Reverse card, open. Megarock Altar."
Viewtiful Rekk (3:33:02 PM): "...I see..."
Y Ruler of Time (3:33:07 PM): He slides Alpha the Magnet Warrior into his graveyard, then fans out his deck.
Y Ruler of Time (3:33:37 PM): "I discard one Rock-type monster from my hand, and one from my deck..." he discards Beta the Magnet Warrior, and shuffles his deck.
Y Ruler of Time (3:33:49 PM): After replacing it, he draws twice. "In order to draw two cards."
Y Ruler of Time (3:37:41 PM): "...Activate second reverse card," he declares, "Dark Factory of Mass Production."
Viewtiful Rekk (3:38:04 PM): "..aheh...Valkyrion, right...?"
Y Ruler of Time (3:38:47 PM): Alpha and Beta slide into his waiting hand. Without responding, Granmarg activates another card. "From my hand, I activate Shallow Grave."
Y Ruler of Time (3:39:25 PM): He holds up Gamma, before setting it facedown.
Viewtiful Rekk (3:40:02 PM): She holds up Hell Kaiser Dragon and sets it. Exodios's ATK decreases. (5000/0)
Y Ruler of Time (3:41:10 PM): Granmarg holds up Alpha and Beta from his hand, and they and the set Gamma vanish.
Y Ruler of Time (3:41:58 PM): "By tributing the three Magnet Warriors, I am able to summon..." Alpha, Beta, and Gamma appear on his field, and break apart, before combining into a tall, slender creature.
Y Ruler of Time (3:42:11 PM): "Valkyrion the Magna Warrior (3500/3850)!"
Viewtiful Rekk (3:42:31 PM): "...Ah...very impressive...!" She claps a little bit.
Y Ruler of Time (3:44:26 PM): "Activate spell card," Granmarg slides another card into his Duel Disk, "Shield and Sword."
Viewtiful Rekk (3:45:30 PM): "..."
Viewtiful Rekk (3:45:44 PM): "I...I see..."
Y Ruler of Time (3:46:07 PM): "No need to fret. Shield and Sword reverses the original attack and defense of our monsters."
Viewtiful Rekk (3:46:56 PM): Dark Valkyria drops. (1050/1800), Exodios FLEXES IN HIS UN-CHANGING GREATNESS!
Y Ruler of Time (3:47:03 PM): Valkyrion: 3850/3500
Y Ruler of Time (3:47:57 PM): "Valkryion, strike down Dark Valkyria. Magna Crusher!" The strongest of Rock-type monsters brings its sword down on the dark Angel.
Viewtiful Rekk (3:48:56 PM): The angel is torn apart. (1900)
Viewtiful Rekk (3:49:30 PM): A card flips up. Valkyrion is immediately sucked down a hole.
Viewtiful Rekk (3:49:57 PM): "When a Gemini Monster that was Second Summoned is destroyed by battle...Gemini Trap Hole destroys all of your monsters."
Y Ruler of Time (3:52:21 PM): "...I see. Very well. I set one defender, and two cards facedown. End turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (3:52:46 PM): "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (3:53:26 PM): "Go, Polymerization!"
Viewtiful Rekk (3:53:44 PM): The face down Hell Kaiser Dragon and Blazewing Butterfly from her hand appear, and meld together.
Y Ruler of Time (3:54:07 PM): "...A Fusion of those monsters exists?"
Viewtiful Rekk (3:54:46 PM): "Superalloy Beast - Dravius!" A reptilian monster made from what appears to be patches from all sorts of others monsters appears. (2300/2000)
Viewtiful Rekk (3:55:18 PM): "Dravius's effect lets me special summon a Gemini monster from my grave!"
Viewtiful Rekk (3:56:11 PM): Hell Kaiser Dragon rises up again. (2400/1500)
Viewtiful Rekk (3:56:31 PM): "And then I'll normal summon the Card Gunner!" A red robot appears, letting out beeps and bops. (400/400)
Viewtiful Rekk (3:57:24 PM): She grabs the second to last card from her hand. "Heavy Storm."
Viewtiful Rekk (3:58:46 PM): As the storm rages over the field, her face down cards flipes up. "In response, I'll use Unleash Your Power! This Second Summons all Gemini monster's on my field for this turn!"
Y Ruler of Time (3:59:09 PM): "Chain reverse card," a sudden pressure begins pressing down on Jo's army of creatures. "Curse of Anubis."
Viewtiful Rekk (3:59:21 PM): "...c-crud..." Jo mutters.
Y Ruler of Time (3:59:50 PM): His remaining set card, Cross Counter, is blown away.
Viewtiful Rekk (4:00:57 PM): "...set one card. End turn..."
Y Ruler of Time (4:02:22 PM): "Draw."
Y Ruler of Time (4:02:35 PM): "Flip Summon, Golem Sentry (800/1800)."
Y Ruler of Time (4:02:50 PM): "Using this monster's effect, I return Dravius to your Fusion deck."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:03:13 PM): Dravius vanishes. "Ngh..."
Y Ruler of Time (4:06:26 PM): "Golem Sentry, attack Exodios."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:06:54 PM): Exodios roars at the Golem Sentry.
Viewtiful Rekk (4:06:58 PM): "Th-threatening Roar..."
Y Ruler of Time (4:09:14 PM): "...Main Phase 2," Golem Sentry vanishes. "I sacrifice Golem Sentry to set a monster in defense position."
Y Ruler of Time (4:09:22 PM): "End turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:09:50 PM): "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:10:36 PM): Card Gunner and Exodios stand up. Hell Kaiser Dragon flips over.
Viewtiful Rekk (4:11:52 PM): "I activate Card Gunner's effect three times!" Blazewing Butterfly, Ancient Gear Knight, Good Goblin Housekeeping are discarded.
Viewtiful Rekk (4:13:33 PM): "Then I'll sacrifice Card Gunner to summon Guardian of the Forbidden Seal!" A gray-haired swordsman appears in the robot's place. (2400/1800)
Viewtiful Rekk (4:14:11 PM): She points forward. "Exodios attacks the defense!"
Y Ruler of Time (4:15:54 PM): A large stone sphinx appears, and is immediately obliterated.
Y Ruler of Time (4:16:12 PM): "Guardian Sphinx (1700/2400), while strong, is no match."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:18:16 PM): She places Grasschopper into her grave. (10,000/0)
Viewtiful Rekk (4:18:29 PM): "Hell Kaiser Dragon and Guardian attack directly!"
Y Ruler of Time (4:20:52 PM): Granmarg stands unflinchingly. (3200)
Viewtiful Rekk (4:21:03 PM): "End turn..."
Y Ruler of Time (4:21:13 PM): "Draw."
Y Ruler of Time (4:21:32 PM): "End turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:22:09 PM): "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:22:57 PM): "Ah, well..." She laughs just a tiny bit and holds up her drawn card. "Mystik Wok..."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:23:51 PM): Some cooks appear. A very Rated R scene follows. Jo looks away.
Viewtiful Rekk (4:24:22 PM): (11,900)
Y Ruler of Time (4:24:32 PM): "Very strategically minded, gaining so many life points in the final turn so as to increase your standing in the tournament."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:24:35 PM): "And...uh...Hell Kaiser Dragon and Guardian attack for game..."
Y Ruler of Time (4:25:09 PM): "I applaud your decision." He bends forward slightly, not seeming to really notice the attacks that hit him. (0000)
Viewtiful Rekk (4:25:33 PM): "A-ah...w-well, it was mostly like...eheh..."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:25:52 PM): "But...thank you." She bows as well...before bolting past him into the bathroom.
Y Ruler of Time (4:26:13 PM): "...I wonder what the hurry is?"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:26:45 PM): A moment later, the sound of running water can be heard, and she walks out, shaking her hands a bit. "Ah...aha, sorry about that..."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:27:35 PM): Her belt then glows, and she wobbles a bit, before falling over. "Ngh...!"
Y Ruler of Time (4:28:26 PM): "Are you alright?" He stoops over, but still towers over her.
Viewtiful Rekk (4:29:01 PM): "A-ah...y-yeah..." She props herself up on her hands. "Just...really tired all of a sudden..."
Y Ruler of Time (4:31:51 PM): "Then I shall escort you to a safer location," Granmarg stands to his full height. "It is the honorable thing to protect a lady, especially one who is handicapped by the fatigue of an honorable match."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:32:01 PM): Meanwhile, in his EVIL LAIR... "Well, might as well check the standings....hey, that Amy person has 9000, nice...and the person in fir..." Stare.
Viewtiful Rekk (4:32:25 PM): He then slowly drinks a whole pot of coffee...and spits it all over the screen.
Viewtiful Rekk (4:33:06 PM): He calls Granmarg up immediately.
Y Ruler of Time (4:33:34 PM): Granmarg hears the buzzing of his PDA, and carefully answers it. "Yes?"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:33:43 PM): "WHATEVER YOU'RE DOING, KEEP DOING IT!"
Y Ruler of Time (4:34:06 PM): "..."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:34:16 PM): He then hangs up.
Y Ruler of Time (4:34:35 PM): Granmarg puts the device away. "That was strange and pointless."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:34:43 PM): "Ah...thanks..." She says, and slowly gets back to her feet.
Viewtiful Rekk (4:36:37 PM): She looks at her PDA. "...th-this can't be right..."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:36:45 PM): "It says here I have over 23,000 points..."
Y Ruler of Time (4:37:31 PM): "Ah, yes," Granmarg nods, "your last-second move was truly a good one, even if it cost you your supposed 'God'."
Y Ruler of Time (4:38:26 PM): "My brothers and I give double the award to duelists capable of defeating us."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:38:52 PM): "...Ah...I see!"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:39:41 PM): "W-wow...I never expected it to work that well..."
Y Ruler of Time (4:40:47 PM): "Good fortune falls upon those who stand strong and honorable."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:55:10 PM): ---------------------------------------------
