Y Ruler of Time (9:50:10 PM): --------------------------------------------------------
Polk Kitsune (9:54:06 PM): Casey grinned as he drove off into the forest, his vehicle roaring loudly as he pulled on the handle, giving even more speed as trees zoomed past by their side.
Polk Kitsune (9:55:42 PM): He didn't even look back as he pushed the machine as far as he could. He gave a side glance to the other two. "Still there?"
Y Ruler of Time (9:55:53 PM): "Despite your efforts."
Rakath Chaos (9:56:57 PM): "Yeah, I'm still here, like Rosebud."
Polk Kitsune (9:58:30 PM): "Good for you, twinkletoes." He then gave the handle a quick pull, giving a sharp turn around the tree, and past the hot springs. "We're closing in, and nothing in sight yet..."
Y Ruler of Time (9:59:20 PM): "Twinkletoes. This guy's a gold mine."
Y Ruler of Time (9:59:45 PM): Quince growls in agreement as he bounds alongside the machine.
Polk Kitsune (10:04:13 PM): Finally, the trees seemed to end, and the scenery changed to a rocky, mountainous scene. "Here we are... Our very own voalcano." Casey said as he slowed down a moment, looking around the scene.
TheGymRat38 (10:06:29 PM): A fireball zips by in the distance.
TheGymRat38 (10:06:38 PM): "Zyahahahahaha! Run rodent run!"
Y Ruler of Time (10:06:58 PM): "...Well, I found who I'm looking for..."
Polk Kitsune (10:08:20 PM): Casey blinked, and raised an eyebrow, hearing the laughter. "... Please..." He shook his head, and primed the ATV, speedign toward the voice. "This is what you want?"
TheGymRat38 (10:08:38 PM): A rodent comes running by, shrieking while its on fire.
Rakath Chaos (10:09:22 PM): Amy sighs, "I should probably change now, since we found HIM. Shouldn't I?"
Y Ruler of Time (10:09:52 PM): "Probably the best choice. Hey, Motorhead, slow down."
TheGymRat38 (10:10:49 PM): "Zyaahahahahaha! Burn rodent-shaped rock, burn!"
TheGymRat38 (10:11:52 PM): A rock comes rolling, somewhat on fire.
Polk Kitsune (10:11:54 PM): "... Slow down?" The guy gave a snort, and pulled hard left, the ATV spinning hard, kicking a cloud of dust toward the monarch's way. Finally, the motor calmed down, and came to a halt.
TheGymRat38 (10:12:05 PM): It does, in fact, look somewhat like a rodent.
Y Ruler of Time (10:13:15 PM): "You'd make a horribly cabby," Riku dismounts and pulls off his helmet.
Rakath Chaos (10:13:50 PM): "Grant my Prayers, grant my wish, grant me wings." Amy calmly says as she gets off the vehicle, tosses off her helmet to the ground, She transforms without much in the way of warning to Casey.
Polk Kitsune (10:13:59 PM): "It's why I'm here, and not at driving school." He said as he pulled his helmet off. "This wacko is what you're looking for?"
Polk Kitsune (10:14:14 PM): "What the F-"
Y Ruler of Time (10:14:36 PM): "Don't curse in front of an angel."
Rakath Chaos (10:15:10 PM): Amy blinks a few times, here eyes finishing the adjustment to spirit vision. "He can swear if he fucking wants."
Rakath Chaos (10:15:15 PM): "I did the first time I transformed."
TheGymRat38 (10:15:50 PM): "Zyahahahaha! Burn rodent shaped miniature car thing!"
TheGymRat38 (10:16:02 PM)
: A fireball comes streaking at Casey's pimp ride.
Polk Kitsune (10:16:05 PM): The boy raised an eyebrow, then blinked, shaking his head. "Figures."
Rakath Chaos (10:16:22 PM): Amy hops in front off the thing and shields it with her wings and halo.
Polk Kitsune (10:16:34 PM): Casey frowns, and primes his ATV back, and zooms out of the way.
Rakath Chaos (10:16:40 PM): The fireball is dispelled rather easily.
Y Ruler of Time (10:16:46 PM): "...I was kind of hoping she wouldn't do that. Thing's noisy."
Rakath Chaos (10:17:04 PM): "I don't wanna walk home.”
TheGymRat38 (10:17:53 PM): Thestalos stops and stares down from the top of the volcano.
TheGymRat38 (10:18:23 PM): And then leaps down.
TheGymRat38 (10:19:39 PM): "Zyahahahahaha, its you crazy losers!"
Y Ruler of Time (10:20:37 PM): Riku activates his Duel Disk and steps forward.
Rakath Chaos (10:20:49 PM): "...I feel really hurt, a a pyromaniac nutcase such as you can call us crazy."
Polk Kitsune (10:21:21 PM): Casey snorted. "Pot caling the kettle black..."
TheGymRat38 (10:22:39 PM): "I'm not a pot! How dare you?!"
Y Ruler of Time (10:23:14 PM): "Shut up. Thestalos, I'm challenging you to a duel, you pyromaniac bastard."
Rakath Chaos (10:23:29 PM): Amy narrowed her eyes, "Next time I let him toast your ride, I fly home and you walk."
TheGymRat38 (10:24:01 PM): "Zyahahaha, why should I duel a loser like you when I can just punch you in the face?"
Rakath Chaos (10:24:23 PM): "Because... you were summoned to duel?"
TheGymRat38 (10:24:40 PM): "Mostly just summoned."
Y Ruler of Time (10:26:20 PM): "A monarch with the ability to control fire throwin' embers at rats. Is that what you do with your free time? How glorifying that must be. Are you just afraid to face me on even grounds?"
TheGymRat38 (10:26:40 PM): "Wouldn't we have to go elsewhere for that?"
TheGymRat38 (10:26:48 PM): He looks around at the bumpy ground around them.
Polk Kitsune (10:27:36 PM): Casey looked up to the angelic girl. "I've known worse people. Know one maniac, know the rest."
Y Ruler of Time (10:28:42 PM): "...You're an idiot."
TheGymRat38 (10:29:17 PM): "Zyahahahahaha, I knew what you meant! What would I get out of dueling a wimp like you?"
Y Ruler of Time (10:30:40 PM): "..." he seems to lack an answer.
Rakath Chaos (10:31:46 PM): "Well, what would you like?"
Polk Kitsune (10:31:49 PM): Casey rolled his eyes.
TheGymRat38 (10:32:10 PM): "What would I like? Nothing you humans could get me. All I want is to crush my brother into the dirt!"
TheGymRat38 (10:32:19 PM): "That icey-bastard..."
Y Ruler of Time (10:33:00 PM): "...Icey? The Ice Monarch?"
Sinisquirrel (10:33:08 PM): "This icy bastard?" Oh, hey, look who it is. "Thestalos."
TheGymRat38 (10:33:22 PM): "Icy-bastard!"
Sinisquirrel (10:34:05 PM): "Hot-headed idiot. If I didn't know better, I'd ask if this was how you spent your free time."
TheGymRat38 (10:34:49 PM): "For your information I've also beat up some random people and set some fat kid on fire."
Sinisquirrel (10:35:32 PM): "Oh, well, that's an improvement." The Monarch-human rolls his eyes before turning to Riku. "I take it you're... very angry with my little brother."
Rakath Chaos (10:35:48 PM): Amy looks between the two Monarchs, "Understatement."
Y Ruler of Time (10:36:14 PM): Riku matches looks with the disguised Monarch, before glancing at Quince. "....He hurt my friend."
Sinisquirrel (10:37:35 PM): Mobius looks down at the botanical lion. "I thought as much, challenging him like that while he's like this... So. Think you can do it?"
Y Ruler of Time (10:39:13 PM): "...Why would I challenge him otherwise?"
Polk Kitsune (10:39:33 PM): Casey simply looked between the two, then leaned back on his ride, watchign the situation develop.
TheGymRat38 (10:40:11 PM): "You really think you can defeat me?"
Sinisquirrel (10:40:15 PM): Mobius laughs, clapping Riku on the shoulders as he changes appearance. "Good. Then..." He leans down and mumbles what Riku should offer up.
Y Ruler of Time (10:40:54 PM): Riku blinks, and his eyes widen as he looks up at the suddenly very tall Monarch. "...Really?"
Sinisquirrel (10:41:07 PM): Nod. "Really."
Y Ruler of Time (10:42:25 PM): "...Okay then," he turns and walks toward Thestalos. "I ante control of the Shadow Charm that binds Mobius the Frost Monarch's will."
TheGymRat38 (10:42:46 PM): Thestalos stares at Riku.
TheGymRat38 (10:42:52 PM): Then he stares at Mobius.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:43:08 PM): "...why do I get the feeling somebody is conspiring to screw me over..."
Rakath Chaos (10:43:12 PM): Amy arcs an eyebrow.
TheGymRat38 (10:43:29 PM): "You....would actually wager giving me control over you and put it in the hands of a human?"
Sinisquirrel (10:43:55 PM): "Of course. That's how much I think of your skill, after all." Besides, he had a backup plan... just in case.
TheGymRat38 (10:44:53 PM): "You....you're an idiot!"
Sinisquirrel (10:45:49 PM): "Maa. Maybe." The blue-caped Monarch shrugs, looking over at Amy Transformed.
TheGymRat38 (10:46:10 PM): "But if that's what you want, then I'll crush him completely! Just wait till you see the embarrassing thing I have you do!"
Sinisquirrel (10:46:44 PM): "Really, it can't be any worse than half the things you do naturally."
Polk Kitsune (10:47:40 PM): "... Who willingly gives control of his body to an idiot?" Casey asked to nobody in particular.
Rakath Chaos (10:47:42 PM): "You seem sure of yourself hot stuff." Amy says "However, you don't seem to back it up with anything."
Rakath Chaos (10:48:22 PM): "Your brother is so sure of your failings and idiocy to ante control of himself. Makes him brave, and you a coward."
Sinisquirrel (10:49:12 PM): Mobius glances at Casey. Oh, another hot shot. "Someone who is confident, son."
TheGymRat38 (10:49:25 PM): "Coward? You dare call me a coward? Zyahahahahahah!"
TheGymRat38 (10:49:33 PM): Fire erupts in a circle around him.
TheGymRat38 (10:49:57 PM): "I'll bet my own Shadow Charm! Equivalent exchange bitch!"
Y Ruler of Time (10:50:11 PM): "Sounds good to me."
Rakath Chaos (10:50:14 PM): Amy smiles, Bingo!
Sinisquirrel (10:50:24 PM): Mobius smiles. Bingo.
Polk Kitsune (10:50:57 PM): "Some say there's a thin line between confidence and rashness." He sighs. "Seems this one has the rashness factor."
TheGymRat38 (10:51:13 PM): The fire subsides and he snaps his fingers, forming a giant fireball above them.
Y Ruler of Time (10:51:26 PM): "...After this is over, we're working on your lines, Motorhead."
Rakath Chaos (10:51:31 PM): Amy looks up at the fireball, "This again?"
TheGymRat38 (10:51:48 PM): "No, this is new. This is a Monarch's Shadow Game! The Firestorm Penalty!"
Y Ruler of Time (10:52:10 PM): "...What?"
TheGymRat38 (10:52:57 PM): "The temperature around each duelist starts off at eighty degrees. For every five hundred points of damage we receive, our temperature will raise by five degrees. So if you take two thousand damage, it'll be a hundred degrees!"
Polk Kitsune (10:53:02 PM): "... He named it after himself? Rash, and egocentric."
Rakath Chaos (10:53:32 PM): "That's not exactly a fair penalty game... what with you being a fire spirit..."
TheGymRat38 (10:53:54 PM): "Idiot, is he risking anything in this duel?"
TheGymRat38 (10:54:02 PM): "Now its equivalent, all three ways!"
Sinisquirrel (10:54:33 PM): "Lower the temperature, numbskull. Four thousand damage itself will kill him mid-duel."
TheGymRat38 (10:57:07 PM): "I suppose he'll just have to avoid dropping below four thousand points!"
Sinisquirrel (10:57:33 PM): "His death won't mean you win, idiot brother."
TheGymRat38 (10:57:41 PM): "For every ten degrees I lower the temperature that it starts at..."
TheGymRat38 (10:57:52 PM): "I'll incinerate a hundred trees! How's that?"
Y Ruler of Time (10:58:21 PM): "...!?"
TheGymRat38 (10:58:30 PM): "Of course technically I can't lower the temperature any more than the starting one, and its about seventy out now..."
TheGymRat38 (11:00:40 PM): "So what's your choice shitty bastard?! Burn, or let the trees burn? Zyahahahahahaha!"
Sinisquirrel (11:01:38 PM): "In his game, I can't interfere, either..." It's just a warning-- he can't help cool Riku down.
Y Ruler of Time (11:02:19 PM): "..." He looks back at Quince, before turning back. "...I'll bear it."
TheGymRat38 (11:02:30 PM): "Now that's more like it!"
Rakath Chaos (11:02:33 PM): Well... this is up to Riku, I can't try to protect him from the heat during a Shadow Game... Amy thought to herself, wishing she could help more.
TheGymRat38 (11:02:41 PM): A duel disk of flame erupts into existence on his left arm.
Y Ruler of Time (11:03:40 PM): Riku holds up his own disk.
Y Ruler of Time (11:04:16 PM): "I draw six."
TheGymRat38 (11:04:47 PM): Thestalos silently draws five.
Rakath Chaos (11:04:53 PM): Amy flew over to Casey and stayed by him, "Remember, bodyguard for this. I'd rather you not die, I can't drive that thing."
Y Ruler of Time (11:06:09 PM): "One card facedown. Then, I summon Thorn Princess (1200/1400)."
Sinisquirrel (11:06:18 PM): Mobius also moves over to the ATV, seeming rather interested in such a thing. "You're also my backup plan," he muttered.
Y Ruler of Time (11:06:39 PM): A black-haired woman covered in green, leafy clothing appears in front of him.
Y Ruler of Time (11:06:45 PM): "End."
TheGymRat38 (11:06:55 PM): "Draw!"
Rakath Chaos (11:07:22 PM): "Backup plan?"
TheGymRat38 (11:07:33 PM): "I summon Addled Chimera(1600/600)!"
TheGymRat38 (11:07:52 PM): A hideous looking beast with the head of a lion, the body of a goat, and the legs of a hawk appears.
Sinisquirrel (11:08:17 PM): "... ah, not you, son. Her."
Sinisquirrel (11:09:01 PM): "As a rule, Monarchs can't defeat each other... but your presence, like that, makes things... different."
Rakath Chaos (11:09:20 PM): "No one Monarch is stronger, but even the slightest spiritual edge is enough?"
TheGymRat38 (11:10:33 PM): "Addled Chimera, attack Thorn Princess!"
Sinisquirrel (11:10:38 PM): "It can be..." Mobius nodded, not having meant offense to the boy... but, as it was, he was... useless.
Y Ruler of Time (11:10:58 PM): "Activate facedown card," Riku presses a button on his Duel Disk...nothing happens. "..."
TheGymRat38 (11:11:23 PM): "During the battle phase you can't activate traps as long as my chimera is in play!"
Y Ruler of Time (11:11:54 PM): "What!?" Thorn Princess goes down.
Y Ruler of Time (11:12:08 PM): (7600)
TheGymRat38 (11:12:23 PM): "I'll set up two cards and end my turn!"
Y Ruler of Time (11:12:31 PM): "...Draw."
TheGymRat38 (11:12:33 PM): Two red backed cards appear behind the chimera.
TheGymRat38 (11:12:53 PM): "Reverse card open!"
Rakath Chaos (11:13:08 PM): Amy nodded, "I get it, I'll do what I can. Sorry Case, but Magic must defeat magic, ATVs don't help much."
TheGymRat38 (11:13:12 PM): "Volcanic Mine!"
Y Ruler of Time (11:13:28 PM): (who the fuck approved that card?)
TheGymRat38 (11:13:32 PM): "I now special summon "Bomb Tokens" in all or your unoccupied monster card zones in defense mode!"
TheGymRat38 (11:15:31 PM): "During this turn, those monsters can't shift their mode!" Five crimson spheres appear on Riku's field.
Y Ruler of Time (11:15:57 PM): "..." Riku snarls, and one of the tokens vanishes. "Tribute summon!"
TheGymRat38 (11:16:38 PM): (that's one of the main reasons I approved it)
Y Ruler of Time (11:16:52 PM): A large, many-petalled lotus appears in the token's place. "Blooming Lotus LV5 (2100/1500)!"
Y Ruler of Time (11:18:03 PM): "Blooming Lotus, attack Addled Chimera!" A stream of light bursts from the flower's blossom.
TheGymRat38 (11:18:32 PM): "I'll lock your little plant away forever! Dimensional Prison!"
Y Ruler of Time (11:19:17 PM): Riku's eyes widen as the plant pops out of existence. "..."
TheGymRat38 (11:19:40 PM): "Zyahahahahahaha! You see icy-bastard! This shitty loser is the human you bet your free will on!"
TheGymRat38 (11:21:39 PM): "Are you beginning to regret your decision?"
Sinisquirrel (11:21:47 PM): "Idiot, say that after you've really done something special."
Y Ruler of Time (11:21:51 PM): "One card facedown. End."
TheGymRat38 (11:21:56 PM): "Draw!"
TheGymRat38 (11:22:24 PM): "During my standby phase I send Volcanic Missile(500/500) from my hand to the grave to activate its effect!"
TheGymRat38 (11:23:05 PM): He flips two cards from his hand around. "I've got Spirit of Flames and Blazing Inpachi in my hand, that's two pyro monsters so you take four hundred damage!"
Y Ruler of Time (11:23:41 PM): Riku grunts as he's struck by a flaming missile. "Damn it..." (7200)
TheGymRat38 (11:23:57 PM): "You've taken more than five hundred damage...so the heat starts to rise!"
TheGymRat38 (11:24:06 PM): The fire above burns a little bit bigger and brighter.
Y Ruler of Time (11:24:45 PM): Riku seems to falter a bit as the temperature around him suddenly shoots up.
TheGymRat38 (11:25:01 PM): "Four thousand damage was it? I think I can do that right now!"
Y Ruler of Time (11:25:06 PM): 'Ugh...this is going to be harder and harder to adjust to if I keep taking damage...'
TheGymRat38 (11:25:10 PM): The missile creature appears floating in front of him.
TheGymRat38 (11:25:26 PM): "I banish Volcanic Missile from the grave to summon Spirit of the Flames(1700/1000)!"
TheGymRat38 (11:26:15 PM): A muscular red devil with a lower body made of flames takes the place of the Volcanic Missile.
TheGymRat38 (11:26:41 PM): "Next I normal summon Blazing Inpachi(1850/0)!"
Y Ruler of Time (11:26:53 PM): "Open facedown card!"
TheGymRat38 (11:27:08 PM): A giant almost wooden looking monsters with an 18 on its chest appears, looking like its made of fire.
Y Ruler of Time (11:27:31 PM): Riku slips a card from his hand into his graveyard. "I discard a card to activate Thorned Crown!" A ring appears around the Addled Chimera's head.
TheGymRat38 (11:27:59 PM): "What's this stupid thing do?"
Y Ruler of Time (11:28:06 PM): "This destroys one monster on the field, and increases each of our life points by half its attack power." The ring sprouts horns, and clamps down on the Chimera's skull.
Y Ruler of Time (11:28:13 PM): *thorns
TheGymRat38 (11:28:15 PM): "Damn..."
TheGymRat38 (11:28:25 PM): The Chimera shrieks, and then explodes.
TheGymRat38 (11:28:35 PM): (8800)
Y Ruler of Time (11:28:45 PM): (8000) "That's not all there is to it." His graveyard starts to glow.
Y Ruler of Time (11:29:01 PM): "When sent to the graveyard, Dandylion (300/300) summons two Fluff Tokens to my field!"
Y Ruler of Time (11:29:17 PM): A pair of dandelion-like creatures appear in front of him (0/0 x2)
TheGymRat38 (11:29:40 PM): "Hahahaha, not bad! Spirit of Flames(2000) attacks a token!"
TheGymRat38 (11:29:51 PM): He pauses and snaps his fingers.
TheGymRat38 (11:29:54 PM): "Hold on a second."
TheGymRat38 (11:29:57 PM): The Spirit stops.
TheGymRat38 (11:30:08 PM): "Zyahahahaha, not bad! Spirit of Flames(2000) attacks a token!"
TheGymRat38 (11:30:16 PM): The monster launches a bolt of fire.
Y Ruler of Time (11:31:02 PM): "...Just for the laugh. You really are disturbing. Activate facedown card, Drain Shield!"
Y Ruler of Time (11:31:20 PM): A glowing barrier appears in front of the Fluff Token, absorbing the blast of fire.
TheGymRat38 (11:31:29 PM): "You know what's really funny? Even if you gain life points, the temperature doesn't lower!"
TheGymRat38 (11:31:35 PM): "Zyahahahahahaha!"
TheGymRat38 (11:31:50 PM): "Blazing Inpachi, crush that token!"
TheGymRat38 (11:32:02 PM): The giant burning wood man picks up a foot and stomps on the token.
Y Ruler of Time (11:32:04 PM): (10000) The second attack goes unhindered, and destroys the token.
TheGymRat38 (11:32:43 PM): "My battle phase may be over, but I'm not done yet! I'll send Blazing Inpachi to the graveyard to activate Blazing Draw!"
TheGymRat38 (11:32:59 PM): "I now get to draw two, and if you choose you can draw one card as well!"
TheGymRat38 (11:33:07 PM): He slides two cards off his deck.
Y Ruler of Time (11:33:15 PM): "...What's the catch?"
TheGymRat38 (11:33:26 PM): "Catch? No catch? Zyahahahahahaha!"
Rakath Chaos (11:33:54 PM): "He's lying, right? There's always a catch." Amy asks to Mobius.
Sinisquirrel (11:34:13 PM): "If there's a choice in it, there's always a catch."
Y Ruler of Time (11:34:27 PM): "..." Riku snaps the top card from his deck.
TheGymRat38 (11:34:29 PM): "That's just the way the card is written, likely so it can't force a deck-out!"
TheGymRat38 (11:34:35 PM): "Zyahahahahahaha, you fell for it!"
TheGymRat38 (11:34:43 PM): "If you choose to draw, you take five hundred damage!"
Y Ruler of Time (11:35:05 PM): Riku grimaces as the card he's drawn suddenly explodes into fire, right in his face.
Y Ruler of Time (11:35:09 PM): (9500)
TheGymRat38 (11:35:18 PM): "And since you took five hundred more damage, the heat rises again!"
TheGymRat38 (11:35:27 PM): Once more the fireball grows in size.
TheGymRat38 (11:35:41 PM): "That's ninety degrees human! Starting to sweat a little? Zyahahahahaha!"
Y Ruler of Time (11:36:00 PM): Sweat begins beading on Riku's forehead. 'I'm not going to be able to keep going if I don't end this soon...'
Y Ruler of Time (11:36:14 PM): 'Figures the bastard'd use a Pyro deck...'
TheGymRat38 (11:36:23 PM): "I hope you enjoyed that...because the fun's just getting started! Tremendous Fire!"
TheGymRat38 (11:36:34 PM): A huge pillar of flame erupts around Riku.
Y Ruler of Time (11:36:34 PM): "What!?"
TheGymRat38 (11:36:47 PM): "Take a thousand damage and ten more degrees!"
TheGymRat38 (11:36:56 PM): "Zyahahahahahaha!"
Y Ruler of Time (11:36:56 PM): "Guh!" (8500)
TheGymRat38 (11:37:02 PM): (8300)
TheGymRat38 (11:37:25 PM): "Of course I took five hundred damage, but that hardly matters does it? How long can you last in a hundred degrees?"
Y Ruler of Time (11:38:15 PM): Riku slumps to the ground, overwhelmed by the sudden rise in temperature. "D-damn it..." He slowly stands, and undoes the clasp of his uniform jacket.
Y Ruler of Time (11:40:06 PM): "You're not going to beat me on some stupid manipulation of the match's terms..." he shrugs out of one sleeve, before struggling to get the other off around his Duel Disk.
Y Ruler of Time (11:41:17 PM): "Now hurry up and finish.”
TheGymRat38 (11:41:45 PM): "I'll set a single card face down and end it there!"
Y Ruler of Time (11:41:49 PM): "Draw!"
Y Ruler of Time (11:42:44 PM): "Spell card activate, Overrunning Vines! This will destroy your set card and increase my life points by 500!"
TheGymRat38 (11:43:23 PM): "Go ahead and attack me, but this will be too much fun! Reveal trap card!"
TheGymRat38 (11:43:59 PM): A red head in a brown jacket and skimpy skirt appears on the field, holding a staff in her left hand.
TheGymRat38 (11:44:08 PM): She begins to chant as a circle of runes appears around her.
TheGymRat38 (11:44:13 PM): "Spiritual Fire Art-Kurenai!"
Y Ruler of Time (11:44:26 PM): "..." Riku's eyes widen in horror.
TheGymRat38 (11:44:51 PM): Spirit of Flames is sucked into woman's wand, creating a flame at the top that's pure white. "By tributing my only fire monster on the field, you receive its attack as damage!"
TheGymRat38 (11:45:21 PM): "Hiita...show him the power of flame!"
TheGymRat38 (11:45:34 PM): She extends the staff and white flame streaks out of it towards Riku.
TheGymRat38 (11:45:47 PM): "Seventeen hundred damage and fifteen more degrees!"
Y Ruler of Time (11:45:55 PM): Riku lets out a yell of pain as he's covered in fire.
TheGymRat38 (11:45:59 PM): "Burn mortal, burn! Zyahahahahahahaha!!!!"
Y Ruler of Time (11:46:09 PM): (6800)
TheGymRat38 (11:47:38 PM): "A hundred and fifteen degrees...a few minutes in that, and let's see how you like heat stroke!"
Y Ruler of Time (11:47:39 PM): Riku's head droops as the ball of fire above him grows ever larger. '...It's...too hot...'
Y Ruler of Time (11:48:45 PM): He drops to his hands and knees as sweat pours down his face. "Nngh..."
TheGymRat38 (11:48:59 PM): "Zyahahaha, feeling weak mortal?"
Sinisquirrel (11:49:35 PM): "Of course he is," Mobius grumbles. "He'll withstand it, though."
TheGymRat38 (11:49:45 PM): He turns to Mobius and laughs again. "I think I'll have you kill that brat in control of us as soon as I get control of your shadow charm!"
TheGymRat38 (11:50:44 PM): "And then for good measure I'll use my Ultimate Fireball-Flame Genocide technique at full power and burn this entire island to the ground! Zyahahahahaha!"
TheGymRat38 (11:50:55 PM): "Or better yet, force the volcano to erupt! Zyahahahaha!"
TheGymRat38 (11:51:24 PM): "Every living thing on this island, birds, animals, plants, it won't matter! They'll all burn!"
Y Ruler of Time (11:51:28 PM): Riku's head is swimming. '...Was Alastor right? Am I just...too weak? I can't fight...can I not even help by dueling, like others do? Why, when I finally want t'do somethin'...can't I?'
TheGymRat38 (11:51:38 PM): "And I? I'll roast some fucking marshmallows! Zyahahahahaha!"
Sinisquirrel (11:51:45 PM): "Stupid, we're not allowed to harm him in any event..."
Rakath Chaos (11:51:59 PM): Amy looks up to Mobius, "What would happen if we hypothetically dropped the charm of his in a volcano?"
TheGymRat38 (11:52:25 PM): "I would grow more powerful than you can possibly imagine."
Sinisquirrel (11:52:25 PM): "I'd wager he couldn't be summed any more until a new charm was made."
Polk Kitsune (11:52:30 PM): Casey just shook his head slowly, watching the psycho.
Y Ruler of Time (11:52:41 PM): 'Good for nothin'...that can't be right. Doesn't make sense.'
Y Ruler of Time (11:52:58 PM): He grips the dirt. "It doesn't matter."
Y Ruler of Time (11:53:09 PM): "It doesn't matter how they work, 'cause I'll win."
TheGymRat38 (11:53:19 PM): "Want to say that again mortal?"
Rakath Chaos (11:53:25 PM): "Riku, kick his ass, he made your partner suffer, RETURN THE FAVOR AND MAKE HIM SUFFER!"
TheGymRat38 (11:53:42 PM): "Shut the hell up you stupid bitch!"
TheGymRat38 (11:53:58 PM): A massive ball of fire comes streaking from above Thestalos at Amy.
TheGymRat38 (11:54:18 PM): "The opinions of spectators are meaningless."
Rakath Chaos (11:54:33 PM): Amy blocks the thing with her Halo and deflects it into the island's Barrier.
TheGymRat38 (11:54:39 PM): "Now you shitty little brat, care to say that again? Do you really think you can beat me? I'm fire itself!"
Y Ruler of Time (11:55:13 PM): Riku stands up, gripping the bit of Earth as he rights himself. He seems quite preoccupied with it at the moment, ignoring Thestalos.
Sinisquirrel (11:55:20 PM): Mobius has heard this 'I'm fire itself' almost as much as he's heard that annoying laugh of his, so he's fairly tuning it out.
Y Ruler of Time (11:56:42 PM): He opens his hand, revealing that, within the otherwise featureless handful of dirt, a small, green sprout is sticking out of the top.
TheGymRat38 (11:57:17 PM): Thestalos cocks his head to the side.
TheGymRat38 (11:57:34 PM): "Oh? Did I miss something when I was burning the land around here? Guess I'll have to rectify that."
Y Ruler of Time (11:57:41 PM): Riku continues staring at the sprout, and as he does so, it begins to grow.
TheGymRat38 (11:57:44 PM): He holds up his right arm and points a finger at the little plant.
TheGymRat38 (11:58:17 PM): "I'll scorch the earth no matter what you try shitty bastard. Flame Bolt!"
TheGymRat38 (11:58:36 PM): A mini-ball of fire shoots from the fingertip at the plant in Riku's hands.
Y Ruler of Time (11:59:12 PM): The plant is reduced to powder. Riku narrows his eyes, and closes his other hand over the bit of dirt before removing it.
Y Ruler of Time (11:59:22 PM): A new plant now stands firmly in the ashes of the first.
TheGymRat38 (12:00:21 AM): "What?! That's impossible!"
Y Ruler of Time (12:00:26 AM): "...I think I get it," he nods to himself, and carefully plants the sprout in the dirt. "Hey, Amy."
Rakath Chaos (12:00:57 AM): "Yeah?"
Y Ruler of Time (12:01:14 AM): "...You've seen me before, with those other eyes of yours. What did you see?"
Rakath Chaos (12:02:04 AM): Amy looks at him, "You were a bit plantlike in spirit power. Why?"
Y Ruler of Time (12:02:50 AM): "Just confirming a suspiscion. I think I understand now...the reason Quince first came to me."
Y Ruler of Time (12:03:29 AM): "And I think I have a lot to learn now, but...it can wait 'til later." He picks up the three cards he dropped
Y Ruler of Time (12:04:37 AM): "Hey, Thestalos. You know the interesting thing about volcanoes? It's kinda poetic, actually..."
TheGymRat38 (12:05:23 AM): "What's that?"
Y Ruler of Time (12:06:58 AM): "Even though when one erupts, everything within its range is burned and destroyed...after it's over, the ashes left behind act as an incredible fertilizer.
Y Ruler of Time (12:07:13 AM): "The plantlife that is destroyed is, relatively quickly, replaced in full."
TheGymRat38 (12:07:51 AM): "Well that works out fine for me. If everything stayed burnt and dead forever then the world would be a boring place for me!"
Y Ruler of Time (12:08:43 AM): "The problem is, you're not a volcano. If left alone, you'll just keep burning everything...which is why I have to make you leave this world."
TheGymRat38 (12:09:27 AM): "If you think you can, then shut up and do something about it!"
Y Ruler of Time (12:09:32 AM): He places a card on his Duel Disk. "Now, let me show you a different kind of fire...the flames of rebirth!"
Y Ruler of Time (12:10:59 AM): A small, sparking plant appears next to the Fluff Token. "Lonefire Blossom (500/1400)!"
Y Ruler of Time (12:11:50 AM): "I activate its effect!" The plant sprays sparks over the token, which erupts into flames.
Rakath Chaos (12:12:18 AM): Amy smiles, "Riku's going to win... Way his aura is right now, he's all in now."
Polk Kitsune (12:12:48 AM): Casey stretched a bit. "That's a way to catch his second win."
Y Ruler of Time (12:12:58 AM): The flames grow higher, before dissipating, leaving in their place a tremendous tree with a large, red maw.
Y Ruler of Time (12:13:07 AM): "From my deck, I summon Gigaplant (2400/1200)!"
Y Ruler of Time (12:13:41 AM): Both plants shoot towards Thestalos. "Go, double direct attack!"
Sinisquirrel (12:14:27 AM): "Mmn." Mobius nods.
TheGymRat38 (12:14:31 AM): He laughs as they strike him, even as he is forced back by the impact.
TheGymRat38 (12:14:40 AM): (5400)
Y Ruler of Time (12:15:19 AM): "One card facedown. End turn!"
TheGymRat38 (12:16:04 AM): "Draw!"
TheGymRat38 (12:16:56 AM): "I set one monster in defense mode and end my turn."
Y Ruler of Time (12:17:03 AM): "Draw!"
Y Ruler of Time (12:18:10 AM): He jerks a hand towards Gigaplant. "I second summon Gigaplant! Next..." Lonefire Blossom erupts into flames itself. "From my deck, I summon Blooming Lotus LV5 (2100/1500)!"
Y Ruler of Time (12:19:42 AM): Gigaplant immediately digs a long mandible into the ground, digging up Lonefire Blossom. "Gigaplant's effect activates, summoning Lonefire Blossom!"
Y Ruler of Time (12:20:21 AM): The blossom immediately bursts into flame again. "Finally, from my deck...I summon Botanical Lion (1600/2000) (2500/2000)!" Quince, in card form, roars as he appears.
TheGymRat38 (12:21:15 AM): "You like plants a little bit too much, did you know that?"
Y Ruler of Time (12:21:34 AM): "Blooming Lotus!" Riku responds. The lotus fires a burst of light at Thestalos' defender.
Rakath Chaos (12:21:58 AM): Amy whispers to Casey, "This is why I gave him the girly helmet."
TheGymRat38 (12:22:29 AM): "UFO Turtle is destroyed..."
TheGymRat38 (12:22:56 AM): A turtle with...well with a UFO as a shell appears on his field. "I just summon another!"
Polk Kitsune (12:22:57 AM): Casey gave a slow nod, smirking slightly. "And I thought it was because you wanted the better one."
Y Ruler of Time (12:23:21 AM): "Botanical Lion!" The plant-beast roars before tearing into the second Turtle.
TheGymRat38 (12:23:47 AM): (4300)
TheGymRat38 (12:23:50 AM): "And another!"
TheGymRat38 (12:23:56 AM): A third turtle appears.
Y Ruler of Time (12:24:37 AM): "Gigaplant!" One long, scythe-like arm slashes the turtle apart.
TheGymRat38 (12:25:05 AM): (3300)
Y Ruler of Time (12:25:29 AM): "I end my turn."
Y Ruler of Time (12:25:39 AM): Blooming Lotus begins to glow, and simultaneously grow larger.
Y Ruler of Time (12:26:06 AM): "During the end of the turn it destroys a monster as a result of battle, Blooming Lotus levels up. Come forth, Blooming Lotus LV7 (2500/2100)!"
TheGymRat38 (12:26:56 AM): "The card I chose was The Thing in the Crater(1000/1200)."
TheGymRat38 (12:27:25 AM): A hole opens up in the ground in front of him, revealing bubbling lava beneath.
TheGymRat38 (12:27:30 AM): "Draw!"
TheGymRat38 (12:28:03 AM): "I activate Blazing Draw!"
TheGymRat38 (12:28:35 AM): The hole vanishes and Thestalos reaches for his deck. "So are you going to draw again?"
Y Ruler of Time (12:29:49 AM): "...It's a hundred and twenty degrees if I take it, right?"
TheGymRat38 (12:29:57 AM): "That's right!"
Y Ruler of Time (12:30:19 AM): Riku draws a card (6300).
TheGymRat38 (12:30:47 AM): Thestalos draws his two cards.
TheGymRat38 (12:31:09 AM): "Alright, I activate Take Over 5! Now I send five cards from the top of my deck to the grave!"
TheGymRat38 (12:31:45 AM): Thestalos holds up his five cards.
TheGymRat38 (12:32:55 AM): Firewall, Repayment of Losses, Volcanic Shell, Blazing Inpachi, Spirit of Flames.
TheGymRat38 (12:34:07 AM): "Zyahahaha, I'll pay five hundred life points to add a second Volcanic Shell from my deck to my hand!"
TheGymRat38 (12:34:19 AM): A card slides out of his deck and he holds it up, confirming that it is the shell.
TheGymRat38 (12:34:56 AM): "I activate Soul of Fire! Draw one card shitty bastard!"
Y Ruler of Time (12:35:10 AM): Riku blinks, but does so.
TheGymRat38 (12:35:40 AM): "Now I select a pyro monster in my deck and remove it from play, dealing you half its attack points as damage!"
TheGymRat38 (12:35:59 AM): Another card pops out of his deck and he holds it up. "Infernal Flame Emperor(2700) is my choice!"
Y Ruler of Time (12:36:40 AM): Riku is literally covered in flames as a huge fireball shoots at him (4950).
TheGymRat38 (12:38:54 AM): "I activate Card of Sanctity, removing the Volcanic Shell in my hand from the game to draw until I'm holding two cards!"
TheGymRat38 (12:42:07 AM): "I'll set one card face down and activate a continuous magic card called Soul Absorption."
TheGymRat38 (12:42:13 AM): "Your turn shitty bastard!"
Y Ruler of Time (12:43:21 AM): Riku looks up at the fireball over his head, now even larger than before. '...One hundred thirty degrees Farenheit...about fifty-five Celsius...it feels like I should be unconscious right now.'
Y Ruler of Time (12:43:40 AM): He draws. '...I guess this is what it feels like knowing you're not normal.'
TheGymRat38 (12:43:50 AM): "I activate my set card!"
TheGymRat38 (12:44:02 AM): "Enjoy this one shitty bastard...Skull Lair!"
Y Ruler of Time (12:44:23 AM): "I chain with this card from my hand!"
Y Ruler of Time (12:44:29 AM): "Mystical Space Typhoon, destroy it!"
TheGymRat38 (12:47:10 AM): "Sh...shit!"
Y Ruler of Time (12:49:43 AM): "Looks like we're finished, then," Riku glares down Thestalos, hatred burning in his eyes, and he waves a hand forward...before pausing.
TheGymRat38 (12:49:50 AM): "You shitty little bastard...I'll kill you!"
Y Ruler of Time (12:50:08 AM): "...No, not quite," he points towards Gigaplant. "I activate Gigaplant's effect! Revive, Thorn Princess!"
Y Ruler of Time (12:50:31 AM): The leaf-covered woman reappears, whirling a pair of vines around her body (1200/1400).
Y Ruler of Time (12:51:45 AM): "Thorn Princess hasn't gotten to use her effect yet, so let me explain. Each time I gain life points, Thorn Princess's effect activates, dealing my opponent 400 damage. Additionally, she gains 100 attack and defense points."
Y Ruler of Time (12:52:58 AM): "That's where Blooming Lotus comes in," he points towards the large flower. "At the start of my main phase, Blooming Lotus counts up the total level of Plants on my field, and divides that amount by three."
Y Ruler of Time (12:53:35 AM): "Four plus six plus seven, divided by three, rounds down to five. That's the number of times I can activate its effect...so let's start with number one! I increase my life points by 400!"
Y Ruler of Time (12:53:55 AM): The lotus and Riku's body glow a pure white color (5350)
Y Ruler of Time (12:54:15 AM): Thorn Princess readies a thorny vine, and cracks it over Thestalos' shoulder.
TheGymRat38 (12:54:24 AM): "Damn you..."
TheGymRat38 (12:54:26 AM): (2400)
Y Ruler of Time (12:54:49 AM): "Again!" (5750) "Rose Whip!" A second crack of the vine.
TheGymRat38 (12:54:55 AM): (2000)
Y Ruler of Time (12:55:25 AM): "I can't pay you back for Quince's suffering, but I can try and get close!" (6150) "Rose Whip!"
TheGymRat38 (12:55:49 AM): (1600)
Y Ruler of Time (12:56:13 AM): (6550) "And again!" (6950) "And again!"
TheGymRat38 (12:56:37 AM): (1200)
TheGymRat38 (12:56:39 AM): (800)
TheGymRat38 (12:56:52 AM): "Fucking hippy bastard!"
TheGymRat38 (12:57:02 AM): "Nobody humiliates me!"
Y Ruler of Time (12:57:05 AM): "And the finisher!" Riku slams a card on his Duel Disk, and a fifth monster joins the group, drawing a red-bladed sword.
Y Ruler of Time (12:57:17 AM): "Rose Knight gains one Rose Counter for every Plant on my field when summoned!"
Y Ruler of Time (12:57:57 AM): "I can remove two of those counters to increase my life points by 300!" Two spheres of pink light spin out from the sword and fly into Riku. (7250)
Y Ruler of Time (12:58:02 AM): "ROSE WHIP!"
TheGymRat38 (12:58:32 AM): (400)
Y Ruler of Time (12:58:58 AM): "The last blow, Rose Knight!" Two more spheres of light fly into his chest (7550) "ROSE WHIP!"
TheGymRat38 (12:59:12 AM): (0)
TheGymRat38 (12:59:49 AM): "Fuck you human! ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY DEGREES!"
TheGymRat38 (12:59:54 AM): The fireball grows even larger.
TheGymRat38 (1:00:06 AM): "I'm not going to kill you...the heat will, and this stupid charm can't do shit!"
Y Ruler of Time (1:00:11 AM): Riku slumps, but grits his teeth and remains on his feet. "GO TO HELL!"
Rakath Chaos (1:00:12 AM): "Mobius, you can intervene if he's a cheating ass, right?"
TheGymRat38 (1:00:29 AM): "Zyahahahahaha, die you shitty hippy bastard!"
Y Ruler of Time (1:00:34 AM): He waves a hand at Amy. "DON'T INTERFERE WITH THIS!"
Y Ruler of Time (1:00:47 AM): He points at his five monsters. The ones who haven't attacked yet.
Y Ruler of Time (1:01:15 AM): "ALL-OUT ASSAULT! NATURE'S WRATH!"
Sinisquirrel (1:01:18 AM): "It's not over yet... Even if I don't punish him, though... something else will."
Y Ruler of Time (1:01:43 AM): Botanical Lion, Blooming Lotus, Gigaplant, Thorn Princess, and Rose Knight immediately leap towards Thestalos and bring everything they have on him.
Y Ruler of Time (1:02:01 AM): (11300)
TheGymRat38 (1:02:09 AM): They slash, whip, scratch, and bite with everything they've got, driving him to the ground.
TheGymRat38 (1:02:13 AM): (0)
TheGymRat38 (1:02:33 AM): The duel disk on Thestalos' arm bursts apart.
TheGymRat38 (1:02:55 AM): "Shitty bastard...I'm not finished, not yet!"
TheGymRat38 (1:03:07 AM): He rises to his feet and points at the ball of fire above Riku's head.
TheGymRat38 (1:03:33 AM): "How much heat can you handle? Let's find out together! Zyahahahahaha!"
TheGymRat38 (1:03:52 AM): And the shadow charm around his neck vanishes and appears...in front of Riku.
TheGymRat38 (1:04:23 AM): "That's what I was waiting for! The Shadow Charm is yours, but in those one moment I'm free from my previous orders, and in that one moment I'll kill you!"
Y Ruler of Time (1:04:36 AM): "..." Riku grabs the charm, and looks up at Thestalos.
TheGymRat38 (1:04:43 AM): "DIE!"
TheGymRat38 (1:05:05 AM): The fireball above shrieks down at high speed towards Riku.
Viewtiful Rekk (1:08:07 AM): ...and the fireball is sucked into a canister, which is then clamped shut. The canister is in the hand of a blond adult man with a goofy-looking hat on his head.
Viewtiful Rekk (1:08:21 AM): "Tsk tsk...quite the sore loser you are, Firestorm Monarch..."
TheGymRat38 (1:08:24 AM): "What?!"
Y Ruler of Time (1:08:30 AM): "...What?"
TheGymRat38 (1:08:34 AM): "How...how is that possible?!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:09:50 AM): "Ah...just a little something I whipped up." He tosses the canister in his hands. "Sucks in fire and stores it." He cracks it open and a bit of fire shoots out.
Viewtiful Rekk (1:10:10 AM): "Saw the big fireball and thought it'd be smart to get it and see what's going on."
TheGymRat38 (1:10:17 AM): "Who the hell are you ya shitty hat bastard!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:10:41 AM): "...." He puts a hand on the hat. "I like this hat...."
Y Ruler of Time (1:11:02 AM): "..." Riku looks down at the manacle in his hand, then looks up at Thestalos. "Thestalos."
TheGymRat38 (1:11:33 AM): "No..."
Y Ruler of Time (1:11:42 AM): "Take human form. Do nothing else until I say so." He holds the manacle out.
Rakath Chaos (1:11:50 AM): Amy looks at Mobius, "New guy a friend of yours?"
TheGymRat38 (1:11:54 AM): "GRAAAAA!"
TheGymRat38 (1:12:12 AM): There's a puff of smoke and he's in the red haired muscular form he had been seen in previously.
Y Ruler of Time (1:13:06 AM): Riku walks up to him. "Good," he punches him once across the face, with as much strength as he can gather.
Sinisquirrel (1:13:35 AM): "I'm afraid I don't know him." Meanwhile, he's rather enjoying the sight.
TheGymRat38 (1:14:20 AM): Thestalos' head jerks to the side and he puts a foot back to prevent himself from falling over.
Polk Kitsune (1:14:20 AM): Casey snerks, questions bombarding his head, but won't even be asking.
TheGymRat38 (1:14:26 AM): He looks extremely pissed, but says nothing.
Y Ruler of Time (1:15:11 AM): "Tell me truthfully," Riku commands, "how many trees you think you've burned since you came here."
TheGymRat38 (1:15:24 AM): Finally Thestalos speaks again.
Rakath Chaos (1:15:26 AM): Amy looks at the new guy, "He's got less energy than me, but a really neat toy..."
TheGymRat38 (1:16:01 AM): "I always count whatever I see that I've burned. I've seen seventy-three trees burned to cinders, but probably over a hundred total."
Rakath Chaos (1:16:06 AM): Amy mumbles something like, 'how does that work' in Irish Gaelic.
Rakath Chaos (1:16:17 AM): The chances anyone there gets what she just said should be minimal.
Y Ruler of Time (1:17:17 AM): "Seventy-two to go," he punches Thestalos again, and keeps doing so. He gets up to about a dozen before he realizes what's obvious.
Y Ruler of Time (1:17:26 AM): 'I'm...really tired...'
Viewtiful Rekk (1:17:58 AM): "...my my..."
Sinisquirrel (1:18:04 AM): Also, Mobius would walk up to the boy and place a hand on his shoulder. "That's enough. You've done well, and it won't bring them back."
TheGymRat38 (1:18:42 AM): Thestalos spits out blood, and then smirks as the device on his wrist begins to glow.
Y Ruler of Time (1:19:05 AM): "-Pant-...-pant-..." he looks down at the manacle. "...Thestalos, he says, as his Dis-Belt begins to glow as well.
Y Ruler of Time (1:19:26 AM): "I command you to go back to wherever the hell you came from, and not to come back."
TheGymRat38 (1:19:32 AM): Energy rushes out of Thestalos' Dis-Belt and he shudders.
TheGymRat38 (1:19:41 AM): He smirks.
TheGymRat38 (1:20:36 AM): "Fine...but feel lucky mortal. You survived this time, but sooner or later a duel like this is going to kill you. And when you do, I'll be watching from home."
TheGymRat38 (1:20:44 AM): "And when you die, the last thing you hear will be my laugh!"
TheGymRat38 (1:20:52 AM): "ZYAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!"
TheGymRat38 (1:21:02 AM): His body dissipates into wisps of flame, and then is gone.
Sinisquirrel (1:22:03 AM): "That was a good command, young sir."
Y Ruler of Time (1:22:23 AM): "Ghhh..." Riku plants a hand against the ground as Duel Energy is extracted through his Dis-Belt. "...I doubt that, Thestalos...an' if I ever see you again, you'll be the one regrettin' it...."
Y Ruler of Time (1:23:12 AM): Shuddering, breathing heavily, and with sweat heavily staining the dark green t-shirt he wears, he looks about ready to collapse.
Sinisquirrel (1:23:44 AM): "I don't suppose you carry any water in that vehicle of yours?" Mobius calls back to Casey.
Rakath Chaos (1:24:08 AM): Amy flies over to help keep Riku from falling over, "Idiot..."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:24:13 AM): The hatted man has already pulled out another canister and is handing it to Riku.
Viewtiful Rekk (1:24:42 AM): "Don't worry, no fire in this one."
Y Ruler of Time (1:24:48 AM): "'Nx," Riku grunts, whether it's to Amy for supporting him, or to sandal-hat for the drink, is unclear.
Y Ruler of Time (1:25:05 AM): He quickly takes half a dozen gulps without bothering to ask just what's in it.
Rakath Chaos (1:26:10 AM): Amy's halo floats to her hand not helping Riku up, as she points her palm at Mobius, the halo floating in front of it.
Polk Kitsune (1:26:17 AM): Casey looked at Mobius, then gave a nod. "Always."
Sinisquirrel (1:26:40 AM): "Yes?"
Rakath Chaos (1:26:47 AM): "You did help us, but you're a Monarch. Summoned by that dumbass to do his bidding, what do we do with you."
Y Ruler of Time (1:27:27 AM): Riku lets the thermos drop. "...'E's an okay guy...c'n deal with'm later."
Sinisquirrel (1:27:28 AM): "That... is fairly easy." Mobius begins to remove the locket from around his wrist. (You know, since he's too large for it to be around his neck now.)
Polk Kitsune (1:27:28 AM): He reached in the back, opened a compartment, and pulled a canteen of water before headign to Riku.
Y Ruler of Time (1:28:18 AM): "...Yer jus' givin' up?"
Sinisquirrel (1:28:32 AM): "Hah, not so much that..."
Sinisquirrel (1:28:51 AM): He holds the locket out to Riku. "You realize he is alone back home. I'll let you finish that thought."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:29:15 AM): "My. You're allowed to do such a thing, Mobius?"
Polk Kitsune (1:29:17 AM): "Like a kid throwing a tantrum... With a rocket launcher."
Rakath Chaos (1:29:22 AM): "None of you like that dumbass that brought you here, do you? Your brother wanted to kill him, and you just give up."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:29:23 AM): "Your summoner must be terrible with specifics."
Y Ruler of Time (1:29:33 AM): "...Heh," Riku grins weakly, "...I think we'd've been pretty screwed 'f you guys didn't have such a siblin' rivalry."
Sinisquirrel (1:29:58 AM): "If I had done what Alastor had brought us here to do..."
Sinisquirrel (1:30:19 AM): "It would not be pleasant. I could have frozen hundreds in my wake."
Y Ruler of Time (1:30:38 AM): "...Lucky us."
Sinisquirrel (1:31:02 AM): "I choose to do this-- it's not a matter of giving up, but letting the proper persons handle the battle."
Rakath Chaos (1:31:23 AM): Amy puts here Halo back over her head, holding her hand out to accept the Locket.
Sinisquirrel (1:31:27 AM): "If you can defeat a Monarch like you did... Alastor and his non-specifics will be easy."
Y Ruler of Time (1:31:37 AM): "...Y'know, I seriously hope that's not why the teachers ain't a lotta help."
Sinisquirrel (1:31:56 AM): "Also... he did not say we COULDN'T hand over control of our charms."
Sinisquirrel (1:32:05 AM): Icy smirk.
Viewtiful Rekk (1:32:15 AM): Nod nod. "Lack of specifics..."
Polk Kitsune (1:32:28 AM): Casey snerked. "Ain't that convenient?"
Y Ruler of Time (1:32:58 AM): "Shuddup Cabby, I sure ain't complainin'."
Sinisquirrel (1:33:19 AM): "I have faith you'll be fine. Now, before he decides my home would make a good start..." Locket, handed over.
Polk Kitsune (1:34:00 AM): "It feels almost too go to be true, if I understand what I heard."
Polk Kitsune (1:34:22 AM): "... That there are these kind of idiots like Alastor around."
Sinisquirrel (1:34:45 AM): Mobius crosses his arms, taking pride in that he is the least onery of his clan.
Rakath Chaos (1:34:51 AM): "Mobius, return to where you came from," Amy starts, holding the locket, "Also, if you can, make Thestalos unhappy."
Y Ruler of Time (1:35:17 AM): "That'd be nice."
Sinisquirrel (1:35:55 AM): "Take good care of that, Miss Angel..." It's an important item to him, after all, since it holds a picture of the one he holds most dear. "If I ever return... we'll play go." Icy wind... DISAPPEAR!
Sinisquirrel (1:36:17 AM): "Eh? Senpai?"
Y Ruler of Time (1:37:19 AM): Riku sighs. Quince slowly plods up next to him. Riku grins at the lion. "Heh, guess I got 'im back, didn't I? Pretty cool, huh?"
Y Ruler of Time (1:37:31 AM): Quince purrs happily, and Riku chuckles.
Viewtiful Rekk (1:37:40 AM): "Quite impressive. I just caught the end, though."
Rakath Chaos (1:38:13 AM): Amy looks at the locket, and puts it around her neck, "So... think Jin expected us to unsummon two Monarchs?"
Y Ruler of Time (1:38:28 AM): "Dunno." Then he pauses, before saying. "Say, Amy. You've got about three seconds to load me up."
Y Ruler of Time (1:38:46 AM): " 'Else I'm gonna be a lot heavie-" he's out like a light.
Viewtiful Rekk (1:39:03 AM): "...my my..."
Rakath Chaos (1:39:08 AM): Amy struggles for a moment, "Little help?"
Polk Kitsune (1:39:28 AM): Casey rushes, and catches Riku, hefting him up.
Rakath Chaos (1:40:17 AM): "Thanks Jeeves, now," Amy smiles, "To the limo!" Her transformations fades away back to regular old punk gothy Amy.
Polk Kitsune (1:41:35 AM): Casey snerked, and smirked. "As you wish, madame." He started to help her bring the guy to the ATV. "Will madame want her caviar for the trip too?"
Rakath Chaos (1:42:14 AM): "Nono, just back to the Yellow dorm so we can prop him up under a tree, we'll be fine then. That will be all."
Polk Kitsune (1:43:31 AM): He shook his head slowly. "Alright, alright."
Polk Kitsune (1:44:18 AM): He tilted his head a bit. "It sounds like there's a lot more than just you two in all of this though. Organisation within the academy?"
Rakath Chaos (1:44:40 AM): "Not really, just a lot of us REALLY hate Alastor."
Rakath Chaos (1:46:01 AM): "Trust me, spend five minutes with him, you'll hate the guy too."
Polk Kitsune (1:46:31 AM): His eyes rolled up. "Five seconds with that hologram was enough. Please."
