Viewtiful Rekk (3:04:13 PM): --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Viewtiful Rekk (3:04:28 PM): Alastor chuckles. "Sooo, you wanna duel me then, do you?" He asks.
Y Ruler of Time (3:05:01 PM): "No, not really," Riku replies. "Just seems like the best idea right now."
Viewtiful Rekk (3:05:27 PM): "Heh. Well, then." He tosses Riku a Dis-Belt. "Put this on."
Y Ruler of Time (3:06:30 PM): Riku snatches the Dis-Belt out of the air. "...So these things do have a purpose 'sides that crappy-soundin' Duel Energy thing, then?"
Viewtiful Rekk (3:06:53 PM): "I hardly think that's any of your business."
Y Ruler of Time (3:07:19 PM): "Nah, it kinda is. I'm about to have to put it on, ain't I?"
Viewtiful Rekk (3:07:30 PM): "Well, look at your options."
Viewtiful Rekk (3:07:45 PM): "You shut up, put it on, and we duel, or I walk over there, punch your lights out, and force it on you."
Y Ruler of Time (3:09:01 PM): "...'S frikkin' troublesome 'f ya ask me...." Riku grumbles as he puts the belt on his wrist and it clamps in place. "Oy, Quince," the lion growls in response. "Go wait by Amy, 'kay?"
Viewtiful Rekk (3:09:33 PM): Alastor smirks. "Don't try anything stupid now, Quince." Dark Horus appears behind Alastor.
Viewtiful Rekk (3:09:54 PM): "Wouldn't want to have to turn some of that lovely foliage of yours to a crisp now."
Y Ruler of Time (3:10:19 PM): Quince snarls in response and plods over to Amy. Riku merely rolls his eyes.
Viewtiful Rekk (3:10:33 PM): Alastor activates his Duel Disk. "Duel!"
Y Ruler of Time (3:10:44 PM): "Bad enough I'm in this situation...but it turns out the guy I'm up against sucks at trash-talkin' too."
Y Ruler of Time (3:11:27 PM): "A'right, I'm first," he takes his time to draw six cards.
Y Ruler of Time (3:13:53 PM): "One monster in defense," Riku declares, throwing the card out. "An' one reverse."
Y Ruler of Time (3:13:57 PM): "End."
Viewtiful Rekk (3:14:20 PM): "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (3:14:44 PM): Alastor smirks.
Viewtiful Rekk (3:14:50 PM): "Dark Crusader!" (1600/400)
Viewtiful Rekk (3:15:14 PM): He holds up Shadowpriestess of Ohm. "Discard Ohm to increase his ATK by 400." (2000/400)
Viewtiful Rekk (3:15:18 PM): "Attack the defense!"
Y Ruler of Time (3:16:04 PM): The Crusader attacks...what appears to be some sort of fungus, which bursts upon impact, releasing spores into the air.
Y Ruler of Time (3:16:30 PM): "Spore Cloud destroyed. 'S effect activates," Riku pulls his deck from his Duel Disk and fans through it. "I summon a Plant with under 1500 attack from my deck."
Y Ruler of Time (3:17:00 PM): A gigantic rose with four thorny vines appears in front of him. "Split D Rose (0/1500), in defense."
Viewtiful Rekk (3:17:13 PM): "Hah. And when I destroy that, you get two tokens."
Viewtiful Rekk (3:17:17 PM): "You're not stupid."
Viewtiful Rekk (3:17:31 PM): "I activate Veil of Darkness and set two cards face down. End turn."
Y Ruler of Time (3:17:41 PM): "Draw,"
Y Ruler of Time (3:18:40 PM): "Spell card," Riku places a card in his disk, "Overrunning Vines destroys a spell or trap if I have a Plant on the field."
Y Ruler of Time (3:18:59 PM): A dozen vines spring up from the ground, covering the set card closest to Alastor's deck.
Viewtiful Rekk (3:19:39 PM): The vines stop as a man appears next to Riku and offers him a bag of gold, a sly grin on his face.
Viewtiful Rekk (3:19:44 PM): "Trap Card - Dark Bribe."
Y Ruler of Time (3:20:10 PM): "Whatever," Riku draws a card, "one less card anyways."
Y Ruler of Time (3:29:37 PM): "..." Riku glances over at Quince, before playing his next card. "Summon - Botanical Lion (1600/2000).
Y Ruler of Time (3:29:39 PM): "
Y Ruler of Time (3:31:08 PM): The beast of bark and petals appears on the field with a challenging roar, and begins to glow.
Viewtiful Rekk (3:31:11 PM): "How adorable."
Y Ruler of Time (3:32:03 PM): "You're really not good at actin' superior, ya realize that?" Riku suddenly seems to have taken his attention away from the duel.
Viewtiful Rekk (3:32:29 PM): Alastor smirks. "I'm not here to impress you."
Y Ruler of Time (3:33:28 PM): "Didn't realize y'were here t'make me gag, though," Riku turns his attention to the field, and points at his lion. "Botanical Lion gains 300 attack for each Plant on my field (2200/2000)."
Y Ruler of Time (3:33:54 PM): "Attack Dark Crusader," the lion pounces on the dark warrior.
Viewtiful Rekk (3:34:41 PM): The Crusader is pounced and has its jugular torn out.
Viewtiful Rekk (3:34:42 PM): (7800)
Y Ruler of Time (3:59:04 PM): "End."
Viewtiful Rekk (3:59:16 PM): "Trap Card - Solemn Wishes!"
Viewtiful Rekk (3:59:28 PM): Alastor draws. "Draw!" (8300)
Viewtiful Rekk (4:00:01 PM): He smirks and holds up Sangan. "Veil of Darkness activates." He discards it and draws again. (8800)
Viewtiful Rekk (4:00:33 PM): "Dark Dancing Fairy - Discard!" (9300)
Viewtiful Rekk (4:00:57 PM): "Set one card. End turn."
Y Ruler of Time (4:01:03 PM): 'Meh, more cards, more life points, whatever...my best bet is just to drag this thing out anyways.'
Y Ruler of Time (4:01:06 PM): "Draw."
Y Ruler of Time (4:02:13 PM): "Summon, Blooming Lotus LV3 (1000/1000)." A small lotus with four large roots holding it up above the ground like legs appears next to the lion.
Y Ruler of Time (4:03:21 PM): "Botanical Lion gains attack points," Riku declares (2500/2000), and the lion leaps towards Alastor. "Direct attack."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:03:43 PM): "Trap Card - Call of the Haunted!"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:04:02 PM): A three-eyed demon appears. (1000/600) "Sangan revives!"
Y Ruler of Time (4:04:43 PM): "...No point holdin' off," Riku mutters, and the lion tears into the three-eyed furball.
Viewtiful Rekk (4:06:21 PM): (7800) "Sangan's effect activates!"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:07:21 PM): Alastor holds up Grave Squirmer and adds it to his hand.
Y Ruler of Time (4:08:46 PM): Riku motions to the Lotus. "Direct attack." The flower glows, and a small ray of light shoots at Alastor.
Viewtiful Rekk (4:08:58 PM): (6800)
Y Ruler of Time (4:09:48 PM): "Main Phase 2, I activate Blooming Lotus's effect," Riku states, and the Lotus glows again, releasing several particles of light that float towards him. "Once per turn, my life points increase by 700." (8700)
Y Ruler of Time (4:09:52 PM): "End."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:10:05 PM): "Draw!" (7300)
Y Ruler of Time (4:10:06 PM): 'If that Akihara guy beat him...maybe I can as well.'
Viewtiful Rekk (4:10:42 PM): "Dark Nephtys – Discard!" (7800)
Viewtiful Rekk (4:11:58 PM): "Dark Ojama Trio - Discard!" (8300)
Viewtiful Rekk (4:12:16 PM): "Doomsday Horror - Discard!" (8800)
Viewtiful Rekk (4:12:38 PM): "Doomsday Horror - Discard!" (9300)
Y Ruler of Time (4:12:57 PM): "Got enough monsters there?"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:13:37 PM): "Strike Ninja - Discard!" (9800)
Viewtiful Rekk (4:14:51 PM): "Hmmm..." Alastor smirks.
Viewtiful Rekk (4:15:35 PM): "I special summon The Dark Creator." He says, grinning.
Viewtiful Rekk (4:16:57 PM): A massive jet-black winged monster appears, lightning crackling around it. (2300/3000)
Y Ruler of Time (4:17:31 PM): "The hell?"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:17:37 PM): "Dark Creator's effect! I exclude Dark Ojama Trio from play!"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:17:51 PM): Flames gush out of his graveyard. "ARISE, DARK NEPTHYS!"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:19:16 PM): Another jet-black monster, this one a phoenix with flames curling around her appears. (2400/1600)
Y Ruler of Time (4:19:20 PM): "..." Riku clenches and unclenches the fingers of his right hand.
Viewtiful Rekk (4:19:42 PM): "When Dark Nephthys is special summoned, I can destroy one spell or trap card on the field!" She shoots a burst of flame at the set card.
Y Ruler of Time (4:20:29 PM): Riku grimaces as his Wall of Thorns is destroyed.
Viewtiful Rekk (4:21:42 PM): "And since I've yet to normal summon..." He smirks and holds up the monster he drew by Sangan. "Grave Squirmer."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:22:18 PM): A muscular man wrapped in bandages appears and growls. (0/0)
Viewtiful Rekk (4:22:26 PM): "Grave Squirmer attacks Blooming Lotus! Struggle Claw!"
Y Ruler of Time (4:22:43 PM): Blooming Lotus blasts Grave Squirmer as it approaches.
Viewtiful Rekk (4:23:25 PM): (8800) "When Grave Squirmer is destroyed and sent to the grave by battle, I can destroy one card on the field!" Bandages shoot out and wrap around the Lotus, pulling in all directions and tearing it apart.
Y Ruler of Time (4:24:19 PM): "...But then..." the Botanical Lion loses some of its strength (2200/2000). "...Shit..."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:26:42 PM): "Dark Creator attacks Botanical Lio! ...." Alastor pauses.
Viewtiful Rekk (4:26:51 PM): "....Dark Thunder....no, that's lame..."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:27:26 PM): "Well, it is a Thunder monster, so it should involve thunder or lightning somehow..."
Y Ruler of Time (4:27:43 PM): "...Black Lightning?"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:27:51 PM): "...hrm..."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:28:00 PM): "AH! I've got it!"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:28:12 PM): "Dark Creator attacks Botanical Lio! DARK VOLT TACKLE!"
Y Ruler of Time (4:28:20 PM): "..."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:28:32 PM): The Dark Creator is shrouded in a sphere of lightning and rams into the lion.
Y Ruler of Time (4:29:07 PM): The lion is rammed and electrocuted. "Much as I hate seein' my favorite monster destroyed...that was just weak."
Y Ruler of Time (4:29:10 PM): (8600)
Viewtiful Rekk (4:29:16 PM): "Shut up, it was cool!"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:29:38 PM): "Dark Nephthys attacks Blooming Lotus! Hellfire Wisp!"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:31:40 PM): "Dark Nephthys attacks Regenerating Rose! Hellfire Wisp!"
Y Ruler of Time (4:33:02 PM): Split D Rose burns.
Y Ruler of Time (4:33:37 PM): "Split D Rose's effect activates," Riku states as two new roses rise from the flower's ashes. "Two Demon Rose Tokens are summoned in defense (1200/1200)."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:33:58 PM): Alastor merely smirks. "End turn."
Y Ruler of Time (4:34:21 PM): "Draw." 'Well this could be going better...'
Y Ruler of Time (4:36:49 PM): "Summon, Lord Poison (1500/1000)."
Y Ruler of Time (4:37:56 PM): A strange monster apparently composed entirely of brown vines and black claws appears between the two roses.
Y Ruler of Time (4:39:24 PM): "Activate spell card," Riku holds another card out. "Rose Without Thorns. I summon a Plant from my graveyard, though it can't attack or be used as a tribute for a summon."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:39:41 PM): "Oh oh, lemme guess.
Viewtiful Rekk (4:39:50 PM): "Gonna grab that Lotus thingy, then level it up."
Y Ruler of Time (4:39:57 PM): Blooming Lotus LV3 rises up on the field in defense (1000/1000).
Y Ruler of Time (4:40:26 PM): "You're too used to other LV users. I'll settle with increasing my life points for now." (9300)
Viewtiful Rekk (4:41:14 PM): "Well, are you finished then?"
Y Ruler of Time (4:41:40 PM): "Not quite," he points at Dark Creator, and Lord Poison tenses. "Attack Dark Creator!"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:41:56 PM): "Dark Creator! Dark Vo-...AH!"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:42:01 PM): "I have a better one!"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:42:07 PM): "Dark Creator! Underworld Sun!"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:42:53 PM): The Dark Creator puts its hands together and creates a ball of purple light in its hands, before flinging it at Lord Poison.
Y Ruler of Time (4:43:49 PM): Lord Poison is struck by the sphere and subsequently destroyed. Riku half-smirks. (8500)
Y Ruler of Time (4:45:10 PM): "Lord Poison's effect activates," a brown, bark-covered claw emerges from the ground. "I summon a Plant from my graveyard when he's destroyed by battle."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:45:26 PM): "I'm aware, you shrewd little boy."
Y Ruler of Time (4:45:35 PM): Botanical Lion claws its way out of the ground and lets out a mighty roar (1600/2000) (2800/2000)
Y Ruler of Time (4:46:03 PM): Point at Dark Creator. "Forget attack names. Botanical Lion attacks Dark Creator!"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:46:07 PM): "Oh noooo! It's stronger than The Dark Creator!"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:46:38 PM): The thunder monster is torn to shreds. (8300)
Viewtiful Rekk (4:48:35 PM): "Hah! Guess it was stupid of me to go for that Lotus instead of the Rose with Squirmer's effect..."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:48:38 PM): "Ah well. Live and learn."
Y Ruler of Time (4:48:45 PM): (better)
Y Ruler of Time (4:48:53 PM): "Main Phase 2. One card facedown."
Y Ruler of Time (4:48:55 PM): "End."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:49:11 PM): "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:49:36 PM): (8800)
Viewtiful Rekk (4:49:51 PM): "Summon Card Gunner!"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:50:24 PM): "I activate its effect three times!"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:51:47 PM): Giant Trunade, Burial From a Different Dimension and Dark Dimension Release are discarded.
Viewtiful Rekk (4:51:58 PM): "That...could've gone better." Alastor mutters.
Viewtiful Rekk (4:52:32 PM): "Oh well. Card Gunner attacks Blooming Lotus!"
Y Ruler of Time (4:52:53 PM): Riku narrows his eyes as the flower is destroyed again.
Viewtiful Rekk (4:53:32 PM): "Nephytys! The Rose Token!"
Y Ruler of Time (4:53:56 PM): "That's better," Riku mutters, and his set card flips up. "Draining Shield."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:54:21 PM): Alastor snorts. "How desperate. End turn."
Y Ruler of Time (4:54:54 PM): "Draw."
Y Ruler of Time (4:57:13 PM): A small pulse of orange energy emits from Riku's body as he draws, and he blinks once.
Y Ruler of Time (4:57:35 PM): "...The Dis-Belt..." he looks at the thing and narrows his eyes.
Viewtiful Rekk (4:57:49 PM): "Ooooh! Is my Dis-Belt helping your draw?"
Y Ruler of Time (4:59:28 PM): "Oh, for the love of...What's the point of this crap?"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:59:56 PM): "What do you mean, 'what's the point'?"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:00:01 PM): "Are you dense?"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:00:08 PM): "Are you retarded or something?!"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:00:16 PM): "I'm the goddamn batman!"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:00:23 PM): "Wait."
Y Ruler of Time (5:00:26 PM): "..."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:01:04 PM): "Kay, took the reference a bit too far. BUT. The point is that if they use my Dis-Belts, students will become stronger!"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:01:20 PM): "But all YOU people can see is that they drain energy afterwards!"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:01:28 PM): "So what?! Power always comes at a price!"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:01:56 PM): "If there was a chance that your sword would cut you, would you leave it in its scabbard and let your opponent cut you down!?"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:02:05 PM): He jabs a thumb at himself.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:02:27 PM): "I choose to take my sword and cut down anyone who stands in my way! And if I get cut in the process, so be it!"
Y Ruler of Time (5:02:50 PM): " 'F you're so convinced the thing's the best thing since sliced bread, then why'd you attack us? And why bother givin' me a Belt if it'll make me stronger while I face you?"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:03:15 PM): "Because, you fool. If you're stronger, then I'll be stronger for beating you!"
Y Ruler of Time (5:03:39 PM): "..." A bead of sweat appears on Riku's forehead. "You're...an idiot."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:04:31 PM): Alastor lets out a snort. "And why's that?"
Y Ruler of Time (5:05:03 PM): "..." his eyes widen as he makes a connection. "The energy's drained, an' it goes here...But if it goes somewhere, it means it's not actually lost, doesn't it? It could be reused..."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:05:38 PM): Alastor smirks and nods his head over to the lab.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:05:44 PM): "Take a look, if you want."
Y Ruler of Time (5:07:29 PM): Riku looks down at his Dis-Belt. "...Regardless of if I win...it'll drain me of energy, an' I'll be tired afterwards..." he looks up at Alastor.
Y Ruler of Time (5:07:48 PM): "It'll do the same for you, but you're used to it an' you've got that Seal, so you'll recover a lot faster..."
Y Ruler of Time (5:08:40 PM): "...Shit..."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:08:54 PM): He smirks.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:09:01 PM): You've finally got it, I see.
Y Ruler of Time (5:09:47 PM): "..." Riku narrows his eyes. "One thing. You want to finish this duel with me so you can get whatever energy I can give ya, right?"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:10:08 PM): "More or less."
Y Ruler of Time (5:10:42 PM): "..." he whirls around. "Quince!" The lion looks at him. "Get out of here! Find someone who can see spirits and get backup!"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:11:22 PM): "Leave your partner unattended? That would be quite unwise, Quince."
Y Ruler of Time (5:11:43 PM): The lion growls, and moves over to stand next to Riku protectively.
Y Ruler of Time (5:12:17 PM): Riku glares at Alastor, then turns to his Duel Spirit, and holds his hand out, next to the lion
Y Ruler of Time (5:12:23 PM): 's head.
Y Ruler of Time (5:13:00 PM): "Quince...There's nothin' more you can do here. If you want to protect us, the only option is to get enough people to overcome this guy."
Y Ruler of Time (5:13:33 PM): "I'll be fine," that part doesn't seem quite sincere, "he won't try an
Y Ruler of Time (5:13:36 PM): kill us.
Y Ruler of Time (5:13:56 PM): "Get outta here.
Y Ruler of Time (5:14:21 PM): The lion moans, and its petaled mane droops, but hesitantly it turns, and bounds back into the trees.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:14:29 PM): "...idiots..."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:14:39 PM): "That warning wasn't for your sake, you fool. It was for his."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:14:40 PM): "HORUS!"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:15:06 PM): The black dragon beats its wings and shoots after the foliage feline.
Rakath Chaos (5:16:04 PM): The Dragon runs head first into a divine female spirit that is NOT HAPPY!
Rakath Chaos (5:16:21 PM): And slaps the Dragon across the face.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:16:25 PM): "Oh, you have got to be kidding me."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:16:42 PM): "Listen, lady."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:16:54 PM): "Horus can detain that lion without killing it, since there's such a difference in power."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:17:05 PM): "I cannot guarantee the same thing for you. So back the hell off."
Rakath Chaos (5:17:49 PM): Wingweaver just stays there for a few more seconds, as if pondering her choices, then lets the Dragon pass.
Y Ruler of Time (5:17:58 PM): "This ain't a fight, dumbass," Riku holds up his next card, "it's a diversion. In the trees, ain't nothin' that can catch up with Quince, he only needs a couple minutes."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:18:12 PM): The dragon tears off once more.
Y Ruler of Time (5:18:14 PM): "So...back to my turn."
Y Ruler of Time (5:18:44 PM): One of the rose tokens fades out. "Tribute summon: Gigaplant (2400/1200)!"
Rakath Chaos (5:18:52 PM): Wingweaver floats down and sits protectively over Amy.
Y Ruler of Time (5:19:18 PM): A large, tree like figure with light green pincers and a large red maw appears next.
Y Ruler of Time (5:19:52 PM): "Demon Rose Token, to attack!"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:20:10 PM): "Oooh, a gemini monster."
Y Ruler of Time (5:20:33 PM): Demon Rose Token attacks Card Gunner, Botanical lion attacks Nephthys!" Riku ignores Alastor's words as his Plants shoot towards Alastor's monsters.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:22:26 PM): (7900)
Viewtiful Rekk (5:22:35 PM): "With Card Gunner's destruction, I draw 1!"
Y Ruler of Time (5:24:20 PM): "Gigaplant, direct attack!" The large plant swings a single scythe-like claw at Alastor.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:24:26 PM): (5400)
Viewtiful Rekk (5:24:39 PM): "My my, I might just lose this duel."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:24:46 PM): (5900)
Y Ruler of Time (5:24:55 PM): (6000)
Y Ruler of Time (5:25:18 PM): "One card facedown. Turn end!"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:25:33 PM): "DRAW!" (6400)
Viewtiful Rekk (5:25:51 PM): "Heh. Not a Dark Monster, but it'll do."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:25:55 PM): "GO, LIGHTNING VORTEX!"
Y Ruler of Time (5:26:28 PM): Riku's eyes widen. "Shit..."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:26:37 PM): He slams Veil of Darkness into his grave. "ALL OF YOUR MONSTERS ARE DESTROYED!"
Y Ruler of Time (5:26:45 PM): All three plants blow up.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:27:17 PM): "Summon - ARMAGEDDON KNIGHT!" A knight holding a rapier in hand appears. (1400/1200)
Viewtiful Rekk (5:27:42 PM): "When Armageddon Knight is summoned, I can send one DARK monster in my deck to my grave!"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:27:58 PM): He holds up Darknight Parshath and discards it.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:28:45 PM): "Armageddon Knight! Sword of The End!"
Y Ruler of Time (5:29:35 PM): Riku grunts and grabs his side as the Knight's rapier strikes him. (7900)
Viewtiful Rekk (5:30:12 PM): "End turn." He says, smirking.
Y Ruler of Time (5:30:30 PM): "..." Riku grasps the top card of his deck.
Y Ruler of Time (5:30:52 PM): "It occurs to me that I've really got two options here." He says.
Y Ruler of Time (5:31:18 PM): "I c'n drag this duel out 'slong's I can. Gives us the most time for help to arrive."
Y Ruler of Time (5:31:50 PM): "Or..." He narrows his eyes, "I can force you to use up as much'f your energy as possible. Maybe knock you out too."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:32:03 PM): Alastor grins.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:32:10 PM): "Nothing would make me happier."
Y Ruler of Time (5:33:22 PM): Riku tenses, and closes his eyes, and suddenly his entire body begins to glow a dull, green shade.
Y Ruler of Time (5:33:36 PM): If Amy were conscious, she'd probably see leaves whirling around his body.
Y Ruler of Time (5:33:38 PM): "Draw!"
Y Ruler of Time (5:34:19 PM): He holds out the card for Alastor to see. "Spell card, Flowers in Bloom! I add a level 4 or lower Plant from my deck to my hand!"
Y Ruler of Time (5:35:00 PM): He grabs his card and throws it out. "Summon, Spore Cloud (1400/1100)!"
Y Ruler of Time (5:35:27 PM): A second mushroom appears, and immediately sends a spray of spores shooting towards the Armageddon Knight.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:36:49 PM): "Heh...destroying my knight and giving you a summon."
Y Ruler of Time (5:38:43 PM): Riku nods as the last Spore Cloud materializes. "Direct attack!"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:38:56 PM): (5000)
Y Ruler of Time (5:39:02 PM): "End."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:39:13 PM): "Draw."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:39:17 PM): (5500)
Viewtiful Rekk (5:39:44 PM): "My my, topdecking is never a good situation to be in..."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:39:48 PM): "Set one card. End turn."
Y Ruler of Time (5:39:54 PM): "Draw."
Y Ruler of Time (5:40:10 PM): He points straight at Alastor. "Direct attack!"
Y Ruler of Time (5:40:24 PM): Another spray of spores floats towards his opponent.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:40:28 PM): (4100)
Y Ruler of Time (5:40:49 PM): "End."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:40:54 PM): "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:41:02 PM): (4600)
Viewtiful Rekk (5:42:24 PM): "...I remove Armageddon Knight from play."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:42:34 PM): Two of Alastor's monster zones glow. "Come out Dark Ojama Trio!"
Y Ruler of Time (5:42:52 PM): "..." Riku quirks an eyebrow.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:42:57 PM): The three Ojama brothers come out, dressed as stereotypical Japanese punks. (2000/0)
Viewtiful Rekk (5:43:48 PM): "Dark Ojama Trio can only be summoned by removing 1 DARK monster in my graveyard from play and declaring another of my monster zones that cannot be used as long as its in play."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:44:02 PM): "Dark Ojama Trio! Black Ojama Hurricane!"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:44:15 PM): Black runs forward, Yellow and Green look expectantly at Alastor.
Y Ruler of Time (5:44:53 PM): Ojama Black bounces off the mushroom harmlessly without his brothers to back him up.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:44:58 PM): "...that means all three of you." The two stand still. "....What're you waiting for!?" They still stand still.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:45:26 PM): "Ugh. Fine. Black Ojama Hurricane! Green Ojama Piledrive! Yellow Ojama Punch!"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:45:42 PM): Now all three of them run forward.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:46:25 PM): Black Ojama punts Spore Cloud into the air, Green grabs it and brings it back down, and Yellow punches it with brass knuckles.
Y Ruler of Time (5:46:49 PM): Spore Cloud is severely beaten up and subsequently destroyed. (7300)
Y Ruler of Time (5:47:12 PM): "Spore Cloud's effect," Riku calls, "I summon Blooming Lotus LV3 (1000/1000) from my deck!"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:47:24 PM): "End turn."
Y Ruler of Time (5:48:16 PM): Riku's body begins to glow again, as he swipes the next card off his deck. "Draw!"
Y Ruler of Time (5:49:20 PM)
: Riku points to the Blooming Lotus, which is glowing brightly, and slowly growing larger. "Blooming Lotus levels up. Blooming Lotus LV5 (2100/1500)!"
Y Ruler of Time (5:49:38 PM): The flower is significantly larger now, and looms over the Ojama brothers.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:50:09 PM): "Ooh, how frightening."
Y Ruler of Time (5:50:16 PM): "Next, summon! Rose Knight (1200/1000)!"
Y Ruler of Time (5:50:51 PM): A man wearing vine-y armor with roses sprouting from it at various places appears. He draws his sword, which begins to glow with two specks of pink light.
Y Ruler of Time (5:51:19 PM): "Rose Knight gains a Rose counter for each Plant on my field when summoned, and each increases his attack and defense by 200 (1600/1400)"
Y Ruler of Time (5:52:29 PM): "Permanent spell, Tree of Life!" A large tree emerges from the ground behind Riku. "This will come into play later."
Y Ruler of Time (5:53:28 PM): "Blooming Lotus effect activate! Once per turn for every two cards that were in my hand at the start of my Main Phase 1..."
Y Ruler of Time (5:53:54 PM): Riku is showered in specks of white light, and his life points rise. "I can increase my life points by 400!" (7700)
Y Ruler of Time (5:54:32 PM): An orb of white light begins to glow on one of the tree's branches. "Tree of Life gains a counter whenever I gain life points."
Y Ruler of Time (5:54:45 PM): "Blooming Lotus attacks Dark Ojama Trio!"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:54:56 PM): The lotus his an invisible barrier.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:55:09 PM): Alastor grins and enunciates every syllable.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:55:13 PM): "Holy"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:55:16 PM): "Barrier"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:55:17 PM): "Mirror"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:55:18 PM): "Force
Y Ruler of Time (5:56:42 PM): "..." Riku's eyes widen as his plants are blown away by the reflected blast of energy. "...K-...kuso..."
Y Ruler of Time (5:57:11 PM): He takes a moment to look at his empty hand...then points at his remaining facedown card.
Y Ruler of Time (5:57:27 PM): "Reverse card, open! Seeds of Wrath!"
Y Ruler of Time (5:58:21 PM): A trio of large vines tear out of the ground and wrap themselves around each of the Ojamas.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:58:32 PM): The Ojamas scream like little girls.
Y Ruler of Time (5:59:00 PM): "When a Plant on my field is destroyed, Seeds of Wrath increases my life points by half the destroyed Plant's original attack and destroys one opposing monster!"
Y Ruler of Time (5:59:13 PM): (8750)
Y Ruler of Time (5:59:39 PM): The vines proceed to drag the trio under.
Y Ruler of Time (6:00:19 PM): Riku gasps, and another white counter appears on the Tree of Life. 'Not enough yet to help...' "End."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:00:29 PM): "DRAW!"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:01:25 PM): Energy springs up around Alastor and burns brightly.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:01:48 PM): (5100)
Viewtiful Rekk (6:03:42 PM): He holds up an equip card. "Equip Spell - Premature Burial!" (4300)
Viewtiful Rekk (6:04:12 PM): "Ressurect - DARKNIGHT PARSHATH!"
Y Ruler of Time (6:05:02 PM): "...'Parshath'? The Angel?"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:07:06 PM): The centaurian knight shoots out of Alastor's graveyard, bathed in black light. (1900/1500)
Viewtiful Rekk (6:07:37 PM): "Darknight Parshath gains 100 ATK for each DARK-attribute monster in my grave."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:07:57 PM): 11 spirits shoot from Alastor's graveyard and feed into the knight. (3000/1500)
Y Ruler of Time (6:08:07 PM): "..." Riku doesn't appear to have a response to this development.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:08:15 PM): "GO, HELL'S REDEMPTION!"
Y Ruler of Time (6:09:27 PM): Riku is bowled over by the sword striking him. "Ungh!" (5750)
Viewtiful Rekk (6:11:23 PM): Alastor smirks. "End turn."
Y Ruler of Time (6:11:56 PM): Riku climbs to his feet. "D-...d-...fugit." He draws.
Y Ruler of Time (6:12:30 PM): "Rose Without Thorns...revive Lord Poison in defense...End turn."
Y Ruler of Time (6:12:36 PM): (1500/1000)
Viewtiful Rekk (6:13:10 PM): "DRAW!" (5600)
Viewtiful Rekk (6:13:25 PM): "Dark Grepher- Discard!" (6100)
Viewtiful Rekk (6:13:46 PM): He grins. "Go, Beginning of the End!"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:15:05 PM): The Dark Creator, Dark Nephthys, Doomsday Horror, Grave Squirmer, Dark Dancing Fairy evaporate.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:15:21 PM): (2500/1500) Alastor draws three. (6600)
Y Ruler of Time (6:16:26 PM): "...Aw man, this ain't gonna be good..."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:18:34 PM): "Armageddon Knight!" (1400/1200)
Viewtiful Rekk (6:19:28 PM): He fans out his deck, this time discarding Mist Archfiend.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:19:46 PM): (2600/1500)
Viewtiful Rekk (6:20:42 PM): He grins. "Creature Swap."
Y Ruler of Time (6:21:18 PM): "...Shit..." Lord Poison starts to move over.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:21:32 PM): Armageddon Knight walks over to Riku's field.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:22:04 PM): "Parshath attacks Armageddon Knight!"
Y Ruler of Time (6:23:11 PM): The Knight is struck down with ease. (4550)
Viewtiful Rekk (6:23:51 PM)
: "Parshath's effect! I can remove one DARK-attribute monster from my grave when it destroys a monster to draw 1!"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:24:39 PM): Mist Archfiend disappears. (2500/1500) (7100)
Y Ruler of Time (6:24:49 PM): (4550)
Viewtiful Rekk (6:25:07 PM)
: "Lord Poison! Direct attack!"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:25:30 PM): "Set one reverse! End turn!"
Y Ruler of Time (6:25:36 PM): "..."
Y Ruler of Time (6:26:06 PM): Riku rips the top card off of his deck, the Dis-Belt on his wrist pulsing.
Y Ruler of Time (6:27:30 PM): "...Worth a try. Summon, Rose Soldier (1200/1600)!"
Y Ruler of Time (6:27:58 PM)
: A warrior much like Rose Knight appears, though carrying a large shield and a shorter sword.
Y Ruler of Time (6:29:03 PM)
: "Rose Soldier increases the attack and defense of all Plants on my field by 400 (1600/2000). Attack Lord Poison!"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:29:18 PM): Lord Poison is run through.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:29:22 PM): "Get your summon."
Y Ruler of Time (6:29:56 PM): "Summon, Gigaplant!" The insect-like tree reemerges (2400/1200) (2800/1600).
Y Ruler of Time (6:30:22 PM): "Take this! Gigaplant attacks Darknight Parshath!"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:30:53 PM)
: Parshath is destroyed. (6900)
Y Ruler of Time (6:31:23 PM): "Turn end!"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:31:31 PM): "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:32:05 PM): "Dark Horus - Discard!" (7900)
Viewtiful Rekk (6:33:16 PM)
: "Reverse Card - open!" (3950)
Viewtiful Rekk (6:33:23 PM): "RETURN FROM THE DIFFERENT DIMENSION!"
Y Ruler of Time (6:33:46 PM): "..." Well that can't be good.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:35:05 PM): Mist Archfiend, Doomsday Horror, Dark Nephthys, Dark Dancing Fairy, Armageddon Knight appear.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:35:54 PM): (2400/0) (?/?) (2400/1600), (1700/1000), (1400/1200)
Viewtiful Rekk (6:36:06 PM): Doomsday Horror: (900/900)
Viewtiful Rekk (6:36:56 PM): "Armageddon Knight's effect!" He fans out his deck and places Dark Crusader into his grave.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:37:18 PM): "Nephthys's!" She shoots a wisp of fire at the tree, the lone M/T on Riku's field.
Y Ruler of Time (6:37:46 PM): Riku sinks to his knees as the tree burns. Fiery leaves fall to the ground around him.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:38:52 PM): "Dark Dancing Fairy's effect! I remove Dark Crusader from play!" (4750)
Viewtiful Rekk (6:39:01 PM): Horror: (1200/1200)
Viewtiful Rekk (6:41:05 PM)
: "Dark Dancing Fairy! Attack Rose Soldier!"
Y Ruler of Time (6:42:32 PM): Rose Soldier is struck down by the dancing trio.
TheGymRat38 (6:42:35 PM): (Pitch-Black Fairy Dust?)
Viewtiful Rekk (6:43:08 PM)
: "And to go through that Gigaplant....Mist Archfiend!"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:43:20 PM): Mist Archfiend lurches forward and claws at the massive plant.
Y Ruler of Time (6:44:02 PM)
: Gigaplant responds by cleaving through the demon, before falling apart itself.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:44:44 PM): "Nephthys, Armageddon Knight, Doomsday Horror! DIRECT ATTACKS!"
Y Ruler of Time (6:45:27 PM): Riku stares past the incoming sword, claws, and flame, straight at Alastor.
Y Ruler of Time (6:45:41 PM): His expression is calm, neutral once more. 'Quince...'
Y Ruler of Time (6:45:57 PM): And then he's hit by all three attacks, and forced to the ground. (0000)
Viewtiful Rekk (6:46:16 PM): Alastor laughs.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:46:26 PM): "Even with all that ridiculous stall, I didn't need my ace...pathetic."
Y Ruler of Time (6:48:02 PM): Riku slowly begins to stand...And then the Dis-Belt takes effect, draining a large orange sphere of his Duel Energy out.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:48:07 PM): Both of the Dis-Belts glow, and energy surges out from both duelists, back into the lab.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:48:44 PM): Alastor shuffles over to Riku, and punches him once in the jaw. "Go to sleep."
Y Ruler of Time (6:49:41 PM): Riku, already looking worse for wear, falls to the ground unconscious without a reply.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:50:15 PM): He cricks his neck. "Well, not a bad exercise..."
Sinisquirrel (6:50:48 PM): If that's all he thought he had to deal with... Alastor has an incoming call!
Viewtiful Rekk (6:50:58 PM): "Can't believe he thought that he could drain all of my energy at his level..." He walks over to Amy, and then slaps a Dis-Belt on her arm as well.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:51:28 PM): "....eh?" He hears Saria's Song come from his PDA. "Why, that's Ren-chan!"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:51:50 PM): He answers. "Mmmmyello?"
Sinisquirrel (6:52:24 PM): Please be there, please pick up, ah, oh-- "Oh! Senpai? R-Right! Senpai! There's a development!"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:52:48 PM): "If it's about two obnoxious yellows coming down here, I already know.
Sinisquirrel (6:54:10 PM): "... Y-Yellow...? Oh, no, that's... Uhm!" Ren took a second to collect her thoughts. "J-Jin Honjou, Alexander Hawkeye, and L-Lily Sakuma are trying to find you..."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:54:35 PM): "...hrm..I see..." He mutters, rubbing his chin. "Do they know about the lab down here?"
Sinisquirrel (6:55:15 PM): "Mmn!" She nodded unnecessarily. "Hawkeye-san referenced it by name! But... I don't think they know where it is, but..."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:56:43 PM): He glances down at Amy, and frowns. "Alright...thank you very much, Ren-chan."
Sinisquirrel (6:57:02 PM): "S-Senpai...?"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:57:55 PM): "I have some things I have to do now. Please do me a favor and tell Zana-sensei that I may not show up for my shift today."
Sinisquirrel (6:58:31 PM): "Of course, but...! I'm wondering... are those things... those Dis-Belts... really as dangerous as they're saying it is?"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:59:11 PM): "..." Alastor pauses.
Viewtiful Rekk (7:01:14 PM): ...dammit, I can't lie to her. "They...have some danger inherent in them. But they're not as dangerous as people say!"
Sinisquirrel (7:03:21 PM): "I... I see..." Whether or not he'd outright lie to her, she'd pretty much believe him anyway. "Okay, then! Just... tell me more about it later, okay?" After all, she felt
Sinisquirrel (7:03:22 PM): he was about to get very, very busy taking care of things.
Viewtiful Rekk (7:03:45 PM): He smirks. "I'll tell you everything as soon as I get back."
Sinisquirrel (7:04:01 PM): "Okay! G-Good luck!"
Viewtiful Rekk (7:05:38 PM): "Thank you, Ren-chan." He hangs up.
Y Ruler of Time (7:05:42 PM): "Eyes for only one Close ears from unpleasant truths Blind, deaf follower."
Y Ruler of Time (7:05:54 PM): A weak hand closes around Alastor's leg.
Y Ruler of Time (7:06:00 PM): "You manipulatin' bastard..."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:06:12 PM): "..." Alastor looks down at him. "'Scuse me?"
Y Ruler of Time (7:06:53 PM): Riku glares back up at him. " 'Seasy t'lie to a believer, i'n't it?"
Sinisquirrel (7:07:10 PM): "..." Ren listens to the tone for a while before hanging up. "... it can't be that bad! Really!" Cheering herself up? "Ah, I
Sinisquirrel (7:07:24 PM): need to call Zaniah-sama...!" And that's the end of her scene, folks.
Viewtiful Rekk (7:07:33 PM): "...." Alastor picks Riku up and slams him against a tree.
Viewtiful Rekk (7:07:44 PM): "Say that again."
Y Ruler of Time (7:08:22 PM): "Which one? The haiku, the insult, or the rhetorical question?"
Y Ruler of Time (7:08:34 PM): "Or maybe y'want new material?"
Viewtiful Rekk (7:08:46 PM): "Accuse me of lying to Ren-chan again."
Y Ruler of Time (7:09:09 PM): "How about this? There once was a bastard named Alastor/Whose head was full of chowder."
Y Ruler of Time (7:10:05 PM): "And to the girl Ren/Who believed in his zen/He could lie through his teeth for hours."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:10:32 PM): Alastor punches Riku's chest.
Viewtiful Rekk (7:11:19 PM): "Listen up, you little bastard."
Y Ruler of Time (7:11:28 PM): Riku grunts, grimaces, and gasps to regain his breath.
Viewtiful Rekk (7:11:52 PM): "I don't care what you people think of me, but I'm not some psychopath like that Kazimir Farkas, or pure evil like Hayden Zandel."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:13:11 PM)
: "If you can't open your eyes to the benefits of my Dis-Belts, that's your own damn fault, but DON'T accuse me of lying to Ren-chan just because of that!" He says and punches him again.
Rakath Chaos (7:14:32 PM): Amy slowly stirs, as people aren't exactly being quiet... and that duel took a while.
Y Ruler of Time (7:15:08 PM): "Pen's mightier'n th'sword, y'bastard..." Riku gasps for air, but his hand is clutching his chest and his head has lolled to the side.
Y Ruler of Time (7:15:37 PM): "Punch me'f't makes'y'feel better, caveman, but I found a nerve'n I'm gonna keep pokin' it."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:16:18 PM): "..." He lets out a snort and drops Riku, before walking over to Amy and grabbing her PDA.
Viewtiful Rekk (7:16:31 PM): "You know that Honjou guy, right? Then I'll just borrow this."
Rakath Chaos (7:18:27 PM): "Huh... wha..." she looks at Riku, and Al, and given she feels like a Bridge fell on her. Bad day, add in she notices her god awful fashion accessory, "Damnit."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:18:50 PM): He looks around until he finds Jin's number, and calls him up.
Rakath Chaos (7:19:24 PM): "I don't think that's gunna work how you want it to..."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:19:46 PM): "What the hell do you want?" "Oooh, my! Somebody doesn't like you, Miss Sullivan."
Y Ruler of Time (7:20:43 PM): "Why do you even have a person on your contact list if you're going to react that way when they call?"
Viewtiful Rekk (7:20:53 PM): "...who is this?" "Oh, I think you know who I am! Alastor Donovan!" "...Donovan...why the hell do you have Amy's PDA?!"
Y Ruler of Time (7:21:11 PM): "What!?"
Sinisquirrel (7:22:05 PM): "..." What was that?
Viewtiful Rekk (7:22:20 PM): "Well...her and some boy named...hey, plant boy, what's your name!?"
Y Ruler of Time (7:23:37 PM): "Stevalastor McIsaliar."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:25:49 PM): He snorts. "Well, he's a little smartass with a plant deck. Has a Botanical Lio hang out around him."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:26:36 PM): "Riku....dammit, Donovan, what have you done to them!?" "Oh, so far, not much. Give the girl with the Wingweaver a nasty bump on the noggin then beat the kid with the Lio in a duel."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:27:01 PM): "And as long as you and your friends stay out of SAL Labs, that's all that'll happen."
Y Ruler of Time (7:27:46 PM): "..." Riku suddenly begins chuckling.
Sinisquirrel (7:28:08 PM): "... threatening us with them? That's fairly low."
Rakath Chaos (7:28:14 PM): Amy can't help but laugh too.
Viewtiful Rekk (7:28:54 PM): "...you won't get away with this." Jin says simply.
Viewtiful Rekk (7:29:26 PM): "Oh, we'll see about that, Mr. Bond!" And with that, Al hangs up and tosses the PDA back to Amy. "Thanks."
Y Ruler of Time (7:29:51 PM): Riku's chuckling has escalated into full-on laughter, interrupted every now and then by a coughing fit.
Rakath Chaos (7:30:00 PM): Amy pockets the thing.
Viewtiful Rekk (7:30:10 PM): "What's so damn funny?"
Viewtiful Rekk (7:30:33 PM): "...So, any doubt left that Donovan's a no-good bastard?"
Y Ruler of Time (7:30:50 PM): "It's IRONY, dumbass!" Riku coughs immediately after shouting at him.
Y Ruler of Time (7:31:01 PM): "Not really."
Sinisquirrel (7:31:07 PM): "I can't say that there is, no; however... Do we risk going on, then?"
Viewtiful Rekk (7:31:24 PM): "...Yes."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:31:44 PM): "Amy and Riku can at least handle themselves until we get there."
Sinisquirrel (7:32:37 PM): "Mn. Then, your plan of action?"
Rakath Chaos (7:33:11 PM): "So... at least we get outta classes for a little while. Ally, would you write us a note 'missed class due to kidnapping'?"
Viewtiful Rekk (7:33:33 PM): "...if Donovan has to deal with them, he may have left whatever system he uses to operate those Dis-Belts unguarded."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:33:48 PM): "You two look for that, I'll look for Amy and Riku."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:34:00 PM): "Irony? Do explain."
Y Ruler of Time (7:34:06 PM): "...Um, Jin?" Alex raises a finger.
Viewtiful Rekk (7:34:16 PM): "Yes, Mr. Hawkeye?"
Y Ruler of Time (7:34:36 PM): "That whole speech about how you're not like Farkas or Zandel." Riku grins.
Y Ruler of Time (7:35:02 PM): "You beat up and kidnapped a couple students, lying to everybody not important so you can get your way, making threats..."
Y Ruler of Time (7:35:23 PM): "Heh, if the ends don't make you like those two, the means sure as hell do."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:35:28 PM): "Oh, geez, if you actually bought that, you're an idiot."
Y Ruler of Time (7:35:52 PM): "That's the other funny part."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:35:58 PM): "Alexander Hawkeye is one of the favorites to become Kaiser."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:36:08 PM): "Lily Sakuma is the cousin of a teacher."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:36:15 PM): "Jin Honjou is the number 1 ranked freshman."
Rakath Chaos (7:36:27 PM): "...He ain't all that."
Y Ruler of Time (7:36:38 PM): "Nice guy though."
Rakath Chaos (7:36:49 PM): "Not especially."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:36:53 PM): "I threatened you, thus, they'll charge down here to save you."
Y Ruler of Time (7:37:15 PM):Except...”
Viewtiful Rekk (7:37:29 PM): "Thus, I get to fight them at their strongest!"
Y Ruler of Time (7:37:36 PM): "If Alastor was able to detain two students, then he really shouldn't have trouble taking down one."
Y Ruler of Time (7:37:46 PM): "Shouldn't we get some extra help?"
Sinisquirrel (7:38:01 PM): Despite whatever questions Alex had, Lily was already shuffling around in her pocket for a slip of paper. "Mn."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:38:06 PM): "Donovan won't be able to stand up to me."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:38:19 PM): Ohka growls enthusiastically.
Y Ruler of Time (7:39:32 PM): "...Y'know, Jin," Alex is BLIND to the winged wolf. "I'm pretty sure you're not the first guy to say that."
Sinisquirrel (7:40:04 PM): "His confidence is set. It's useless to argue it." Lily holds up the slip to Jin. "Here. You know how it works."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:40:34 PM): "..." Jin reaches a hand into his jacket and calmly shows Alexander his (sheathed) short sword.
Viewtiful Rekk (7:40:45 PM): "I assure you, I'll be fine."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:41:05 PM): He nods to Lily and takes the slip. "Thank you."
Y Ruler of Time (7:41:19 PM): "..." Alex quirks an eyebrow at the weapon, and takes a sloooooooow step back away from Jin. "I'm pretty sure you're not supposed to have that BUT...I'm not arguing."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:41:35 PM): "My father's on the board of directors."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:41:44 PM): "I get some leeway on certain rules."
Y Ruler of Time (7:41:54 PM): "I thought you hated your father?"
Y Ruler of Time (7:42:09 PM): Where'd he learn that?
Viewtiful Rekk (7:42:17 PM): "..."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:42:18 PM): Blink.
Viewtiful Rekk (7:42:20 PM): "What?"
Sinisquirrel (7:42:30 PM): "..." It wasn't from her.
Y Ruler of Time (7:42:57 PM): "...Bad time? Sorry..." He stares. "I did some research."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:43:22 PM): "...how the hell did you learn about my relationship with my father from researching academy records?"
Y Ruler of Time (7:44:10 PM): Alex's hand reflexively digs into his jacket to pull out a fake pair of glasses so he can put them on, have them glow, and he can chuckle evilly BUT...he resists.
Y Ruler of Time (7:44:53 PM)
: "...Well, uh, they weren't really academy records and, um, I wasn't technically supposed to be able to access them, and, uh, y'know what? Forget I saw the sword."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:45:19 PM): "..."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:45:22 PM): "I'll do that."
Y Ruler of Time (7:45:24 PM): "And everything after that. Preferably."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:46:15 PM): With that, Jin stows the sword and turns, before continuing on.
Y Ruler of Time (7:46:34 PM): "..." Alex exhales.
Sinisquirrel (7:47:04 PM)
: "... saa..." Well, that was awkward, to say the least. "Lead the way, Hawkeye-san."
Y Ruler of Time (7:47:39 PM): "Right, right..." he turns to head for the Yellow dorm. "Remind me to never reveal I know classified information again."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:47:54 PM): --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
