Viewtiful Rekk (6:36:03 PM):Amado stands at his place in the arena, arms crossed.
apopalyctic (6:37:11 PM):Ren is duly happy that PDAs have a camera function.
Y Ruler of Time (6:38:12 PM):Alex...chews a piece of gum. He also has a pair of headphones on and it's pretty apparent that he's listening to rock music.
Y Ruler of Time (6:40:44 PM):"...Is the final duel done yet?"
apopalyctic (6:41:38 PM):"It's been done." With the obvious baaaaka tone to her voice.
Y Ruler of Time (6:42:37 PM):Which is lost upon Alex who is still listening to his music.
Y Ruler of Time (6:42:55 PM):He focuses on trying to blow a bubble.
apopalyctic (6:43:12 PM):"..." Yank on the headphones. "Do not ask a question if you don't intend to hear the answer."
Y Ruler of Time (6:43:54 PM):"Well there go all my chances to be rhetorical or sarcastic..."
apopalyctic (6:43:54 PM):"... what is this garbage you're listening to anyway?" Up to ear.
apopalyctic (6:45:11 PM):"AGH!"
Y Ruler of Time (6:45:14 PM):Alex spits his gum out and turns the volume on his player back down.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:45:14 PM):The sound abruptly cuts.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:45:26 PM):Jin holds two halves of a wire in his hands.
Y Ruler of Time (6:45:35 PM):"....You're paying for that, man."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:45:42 PM):"Make me."
Y Ruler of Time (6:45:46 PM):"Kay."
Y Ruler of Time (6:45:52 PM):And then Alex sued Jin.
Y Ruler of Time (6:46:15 PM):Okay so not really.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:46:22 PM):"You don't seem to care about this tournament much."
Y Ruler of Time (6:46:33 PM):"......." Alex scribbles something on a piece of paper and hands it to Jin.
apopalyctic (6:46:51 PM):(( ... oh, right. We needed to... approve his deckmaster, didn't we? ))
Y Ruler of Time (6:46:56 PM):(you kinda did)
Viewtiful Rekk (6:46:58 PM):He takes it.
apopalyctic (6:47:12 PM):(( Yeah, but I never checked to see if it changed. XD ))
Y Ruler of Time (6:47:19 PM):(it did change)
apopalyctic (6:47:34 PM):(( 'Kay, I'll just trust that everything's in order? ))
Viewtiful Rekk (6:47:48 PM):((It's only for one duel, against me, and I approved it, so))
Viewtiful Rekk (6:47:54 PM):((How about we give this one a pass?))
apopalyctic (6:48:10 PM):(( Fine by me! ^^ ))
Y Ruler of Time (6:48:38 PM):"Don't worry, they're cheap ones."
Y Ruler of Time (6:48:54 PM):He stoops down and picks up his Duel Disk, which has his deck already in it.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:48:54 PM):"You didn't answer my question."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:49:02 PM):(...wait)
Viewtiful Rekk (6:49:07 PM):"You didn't answer me."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:49:22 PM):Jin's eyebrow quirks curiously.
Y Ruler of Time (6:49:56 PM):Alex pauses. Then he shrugs. "I would've had to duel Tsukayama anyway. It would've been nice if someone else had come up."
apopalyctic (6:50:41 PM):"It's The Kaiser Run: Year Two."
Y Ruler of Time (6:51:10 PM):"Yep," he walks to the arena.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:51:17 PM):"....wait."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:51:35 PM):"'Would've had to duel Tsukayama anyway'?"
Y Ruler of Time (6:52:03 PM):"The guy can practically fly, you think I could actually avoid him?"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:52:14 PM):"You did last year."
apopalyctic (6:52:22 PM):"He wasn't the Kaiser last year."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:53:39 PM):"..." Jin shrugs.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:53:41 PM):"Good luck."
Y Ruler of Time (6:55:24 PM):Alex turns his attention to his opponent. "...You know it'll be embarassing if you're not in Blue before the week's out."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:56:05 PM):"I don't really care what dorm I'm in." Amado stretches his legs.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:56:22 PM):"I like it in Yellow. S'where Ren and Riku are."
Y Ruler of Time (6:56:51 PM):"Blue rooms're probably comfier..."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:57:31 PM):"I just want everybody to know I'm the strongest damn duelist in this place."
apopalyctic (6:57:33 PM):"The kitchen's definitely better...!"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:57:40 PM):"And if I beat you, they will."
Y Ruler of Time (6:58:56 PM):"...heh....hehehehehehe..." Alex smirks. "No they won't."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:59:15 PM):"They won't?"
Y Ruler of Time (6:59:52 PM):"Being at the top doesn't mean people accept you should be there. Case in point." He jerks a thumb towards himself.
Y Ruler of Time (7:01:48 PM):"...You've gotten a lot stronger, but you haven't gotten much smarter, Amado Tsukayama."
Y Ruler of Time (7:01:54 PM):"Deck Master, Demonic Motor - Omega!"
Viewtiful Rekk (7:01:59 PM):"Yeah, well."
Y Ruler of Time (7:02:08 PM):A large red machine rises up behind Alex, smoke pouring up out of its back.
Viewtiful Rekk (7:02:12 PM):"You were never all that smart to begin with."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:02:18 PM):"Deckmaster, Sonic the Hedgehog!"
apopalyctic (7:02:32 PM):(( If only there was a fat guy riding inside the motor. ))
Viewtiful Rekk (7:02:34 PM):The blue hedgehog appears next to Amado and grins up at the machine.
apopalyctic (7:02:37 PM):(( Then, this would be perfect. ))
OnlineHost (7:02:42 PM):Y Ruler of Time rolled 2 6-sided dice:  3 1

Viewtiful Rekk (7:11:36 PM):(You still returned a Deformer to your deck, right?)
Y Ruler of Time (7:11:43 PM):(that's an effect, not a cost)
Viewtiful Rekk (7:11:51 PM):(It's a cost.)
Viewtiful Rekk (7:12:20 PM):(Oh what the fuck!?)
Y Ruler of Time (7:12:36 PM):Returning 1 "Morphtronic" monster from your hand to the Deck is not a cost.[1]
Viewtiful Rekk (7:12:42 PM):(YEAH, I SAW IT.)

Y Ruler of Time (8:17:10 PM):"Being at the top is an illusion. There is always someone better. It took me getting to where I am now to realize that."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:17:46 PM):"I never said I wanted to be on the top."
Y Ruler of Time (8:17:55 PM):"It's not a matter of being the best. It's a matter of being better."
Y Ruler of Time (8:18:04 PM):"So get better."
Hinoryu8 (8:18:05 PM):(( god dammit. Please do, though I'm on meebo though so you should probably upload it somewhere instead ))
Viewtiful Rekk (8:18:15 PM):Spare me your metaphysical bullshit for once, Hawkeye." Amado doesn't look angry, he looks annoyed.
Viewtiful Rekk (8:18:24 PM):"You and Polyxena and Kudasai."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:18:34 PM):"You think 'cause you were born before me, you get to talk down to me whenever I lose."
apopalyctic (8:18:49 PM):(( Okay, give me a few minutes since I have to separate it from the rest of the cougar logs. ))
Y Ruler of Time (8:19:04 PM):"I get to talk down to you because I won."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:19:08 PM):"Bruce was a loser as Kaiser, but at least he was quiet when he beat me."
apopalyctic (8:19:43 PM):Hmph! Wonder if he talked that way to Mustang-san... Annoyed face.
Viewtiful Rekk (8:19:45 PM):"No you don't, moron."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:19:52 PM):"Because you're not stronger than me."
Y Ruler of Time (8:20:17 PM):"...Good."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:26:29 PM):"Didn't stop Juudai from fighting the Kaiser."
Y Ruler of Time (8:27:28 PM):".........So, what, you want the Ceremonial Duel? You're asking for another one? At the start of the year?"
apopalyctic (8:27:31 PM):"Just wish they'd stop it." Mutter.
Y Ruler of Time (8:29:48 PM):"........" Alex looks like he has tried and failed to understand the path of logic Amado is walking down.
Y Ruler of Time (8:30:04 PM):"Uh-huh. Go change dorms." He's seriously leaving this time.
Viewtiful Rekk (8:30:14 PM):"Don't think so." So is he.
Y Ruler of Time (8:31:30 PM):"...Does...anyone know'r care what just happened?"

Viewtiful Rekk (8:32:20 PM):Amado heads into the hallway and leaves the arena without going into the stands.
apopalyctic (8:33:30 PM):"YES, PARTY! If you guys don't know, The Searing Flames Nightclub is officially open for post-tournament fun and games!" Dramatic point. "So let's get started!"
Y Ruler of Time (8:33:51 PM):'...Hmph. You want me to be your stepping stone, Amado? Prove yourself first. I'm not giving the time of day to those who won't play within the system."
Hinoryu8 (8:33:58 PM):(( Where he ran into Omasu who gave him a several-hour-long lecture on losing gracefully. ))
apopalyctic (8:34:55 PM):"... I really don't know."
apopalyctic (8:36:32 PM):(( Or Reiko, who gets to feel hypocritical sorta! ))
Y Ruler of Time (8:36:54 PM):"...Hm...go party...'r no..." Riku scratches his chin.
Hinoryu8 (8:43:02 PM):"I'm gonna go find Amado." Reiko looks up at Ren. "I'll go after that."
apopalyctic (8:43:26 PM):"O... Okay... th-thanks..."
Y Ruler of Time (8:43:38 PM):"Hm...a curiosity is piqued!"
