Viewtiful Rekk (10:52:33 PM): --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Viewtiful Rekk (10:57:15 PM): Desdemona is on the roof of the school, slowly flipping through student records on Isabel's PDA. "Hmm..."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:57:58 PM): "Mylene and Alexander...brain and skill..." She continues to flip through until she eventually finds the 5th ranked student of the academy, and smiles. "...ah..and brawn."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:58:05 PM): She smiles and dials in the number.
TheGymRat38 (10:59:26 PM): Eye of the Tiger plays.
TheGymRat38 (11:01:04 PM)
: "Hello!"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:02:30 PM)
: "Polyxena."
TheGymRat38 (11:02:38 PM): "Speaking."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:03:46 PM)
: "Are you too busy lifting weights or some inane shit like that to duel me right now?"
TheGymRat38 (11:04:02 PM): "Who would this be?"
TheGymRat38 (11:04:10 PM)
: He says while lifting weights.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:05:59 PM)
: "...who the hell do you think it is?!"
TheGymRat38 (11:06:17 PM): "'re a very angry female."
TheGymRat38 (11:06:29 PM)
: "On that basis...Anna?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:06:33 PM)
TheGymRat38 (11:06:53 PM): *Nod nod*
TheGymRat38 (11:07:02 PM)
: "Of course! I should have known!"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:08:17 PM)
: "I swear to God, Polyxena, if you were any dumber, you'd need a helmet!"
TheGymRat38 (11:08:44 PM): "That's quite rude Miss Marias."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:09:26 PM)
: "Oh well, gee, y'really think so, y'fucking private eye!?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:09:31 PM): "Look! Can you duel me or what?!"
TheGymRat38 (11:09:44 PM): "Well...I don't particularly have anything better to do..."
TheGymRat38 (11:09:56 PM)
: He looks away from the pile of homework on his table.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:10:14 PM)
: She glances at the sun. It's begun to set, but...
Viewtiful Rekk (11:10:27 PM): There's a chance somebody can interfere if it's not out of the way...
Viewtiful Rekk (11:10:38 PM): "The volcano, 20 minutes, be there!" She hangs up.
TheGymRat38 (11:11:40 PM): "Twenty minutes? That's a short time...but with these muscles of mine, I can make it!"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:12:11 PM): Desdemona drapes herself in a cloak, and shoots off towards the volcano.
TheGymRat38 (11:12:30 PM): He lowers his weight and glances out the window. "Hmm...if only there was a way to use my mighty strength to drag the volcano to me..."
TheGymRat38 (11:13:33 PM): Despite the impossibility he takes off down the stairs and towards the volcano.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:15:11 PM)
: Eventually, Desdemona is waiting at the volcano, checking the time every so often.
TheGymRat38 (11:16:03 PM): Adonis comes charging out through the woods at top speed. He skids to a halt right before the time reaches twenty minutes.
TheGymRat38 (11:16:05 PM)
: "Safe!"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:16:11 PM)
: "...I do hope he doesn't try to drag the volcano to hi- ...ah."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:17:19 PM): "Hello, Mr. Polyxena." She says, with a smile and a wave.
TheGymRat38 (11:18:05 PM): "Mister? That's rather odd..."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:19:52 PM)
: "Odd? Why, whatever do you mean?"
TheGymRat38 (11:21:57 PM): He pauses and then thrusts a fist into the sky. "This fist of mine is heavy with truth and power. It sees through this change in attitude and to the truth!"
TheGymRat38 (11:22:17 PM)
: He points at her...and his teeth sparkle. "You've fallen in love with my perfect physique!"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:22:30 PM): "...I...what?"
TheGymRat38 (11:23:07 PM): "Of course, it's so obvious! Inviting me out to a remote location, wearing a dress and acting so polite unlike your normal self. Clearly you are attempting to gain my favor as an act of love!"
TheGymRat38 (11:23:28 PM)
: He gestures to his rippling pecs. "Who could resist this amazing body after all?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:23:32 PM)
: Desdemona frowns, and then glares at Adonis. " dare you!"
TheGymRat38 (11:23:35 PM): Chest gleam!
Viewtiful Rekk (11:23:43 PM)
: "How dare you insinuate that I could love any other than my king!?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:24:05 PM): "I would never fall in love with someone as presumptuous as you anyway!"
TheGymRat38 (11:24:26 PM): Adonis suddenly looks quite serious. "Perhaps you mistake my melodrama as reality."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:24:34 PM)
: She scoffs and crosses her arms. "The nerve."
TheGymRat38 (11:24:51 PM): "I don't know who you are, but you are not Isabel Marias. She is incapable of being polite to me."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:25:26 PM)
: "You didn't know who she was a few moments ago."
TheGymRat38 (11:25:59 PM): He turns away and sweat-drops. "She's seen through my bluff..."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:26:26 PM):
...He's very stupid... A sweatdrop runs down Desdemona's cheek.
TheGymRat38 (11:26:21 PM): Adonis returns to facing her. "However, you just admitted to not being Isabel Marias."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:26:38 PM): ...but surprisingly clever. "So I suppose I did." She smiles.
TheGymRat38 (11:28:14 PM): "Is it truly a duel that you want, or was that a lie as well?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:28:31 PM)
: "No, a duel is definitely what I want."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:29:05 PM)
: She gestures upwards. "I want to make sure we're alone, however. So if you don't mind..."
TheGymRat38 (11:29:58 PM): "To the top of the volcano?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:30:07 PM)
: She nods, smiling.
TheGymRat38 (11:30:24 PM): "Very well."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:31:17 PM)
: She heads up, gesturing for him to follow.
TheGymRat38 (11:31:46 PM): Adonis follows her up.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:35:36 PM)
: Eventually, they reach the top, and Desdemona stands a distance away from Adonis, before placing her deck into her Duel Disk.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:35:38 PM): "Now, shall we?"
TheGymRat38 (11:37:16 PM): His Duel Coat activates and he slides his deck into the appropriate slot.
TheGymRat38 (11:37:30 PM)
: "Let's begin whoever you are."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:39:07 PM)
: "Ah, my name is Desdemona."
TheGymRat38 (11:39:34 PM): "Desdemona, please take the first turn."
TheGymRat38 (11:39:45 PM)
: Five cards slide out and into his hand.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:39:46 PM)
: "Very well." She draws six cards.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:40:23 PM): "I'll begin by summoning Advanced Neo-Spacian Grand Mole and activating Hyper Recycling." (900/300)
TheGymRat38 (11:41:33 PM): "Neo-Spacian?"
TheGymRat38 (11:42:47 PM)
: "Interesting..."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:44:00 PM)
: "Your move, Adonis."
TheGymRat38 (11:44:07 PM): "Draw!"
TheGymRat38 (11:45:23 PM): "Since there are no monsters on my side of the field I may special summon Draco-Kin Howler(1500/1900)!"
TheGymRat38 (11:46:06 PM): A red-scaled two-legged dragon appears and lets out an ear-splitting wail.
TheGymRat38 (11:47:20 PM)
: "Next, I normal summon The Creator Incarnate(1600/1500)!"
TheGymRat38 (11:47:31 PM)
: A golden armored warrior takes its place next to the dragon.
TheGymRat38 (11:48:02 PM)
: "Draco-Kin Howler, attack Grand Mole!"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:48:56 PM)
: The mole closes its collar and strikes the dragon, returning them both to their owner's hands.
TheGymRat38 (11:50:01 PM): "Incarnate Blade!"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:50:10 PM)
: (6400)
TheGymRat38 (11:50:28 PM): "I'll place a single card face down and conclude my turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:50:56 PM)
: "Draw."
TheGymRat38 (11:51:25 PM): "Out of curiosity, why exactly did you challenge me?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:52:37 PM)
: She smiles. "You're 5th ranked in the school. You're a very skilled duelist."
TheGymRat38 (11:52:54 PM): "That's all? Oh...well alright then."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:53:32 PM)
: She nods. "That is all."
TheGymRat38 (11:54:03 PM): "Despite this place being called Duelist Academy its rather surprising how rare it is for a duel challenge to be issued without ulterior motives."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:54:16 PM)
: "I...will merely summon my mole again and set two reverse cards to end my turn."
TheGymRat38 (11:54:33 PM): "Playing hard to get? Very well, I'll draw."
TheGymRat38 (11:55:08 PM)
: "I activate Trade-In, discarding Majestic Mech-Goryu from my hand to draw two cards."
TheGymRat38 (11:56:55 PM)
: "Draco-Kin Howler in attack mode! It attacks Grand Mole once more!"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:58:24 PM)
: "Ah...this time, I think not." The Howler vanishes.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:58:28 PM): "Dimensional Prison."
TheGymRat38 (11:59:33 PM): Adonis frowns, but then points at his remaining monster. "Incarnate Blade!"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:00:45 AM)
: That time, the attack succeeds and both monsters are returned to the hand.
TheGymRat38 (12:01:43 AM): "Not finished yet! At a cost of fifteen hundred life points, Beyond the Grave! Reborn, Majestic Mech-Goryu(2900/1800)!"
TheGymRat38 (12:01:55 AM)
: "Holy Burst Stream! Direct attack!"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:02:27 AM)
: Desdemona smiles as her other trap flips up. "Mirror Shard."
TheGymRat38 (12:03:46 AM): Adonis grits his teeth as his holy dragon disappears from the field. "Well played."
TheGymRat38 (12:03:49 AM)
: (5050)
TheGymRat38 (12:04:13 AM)
: "I set two cards face down and end my turn!"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:04:19 AM)
: "Thank you." She gives him a polite curtsy.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:04:21 AM): "Draw."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:04:57 AM): She holds up her drawn card. "Discard Neo-Space Pathfinder."
TheGymRat38 (12:05:20 AM): "A field tutor then?"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:06:30 AM)
: "Advanced Neo-Space activates."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:06:40 AM): A blue cloud of space surrounds the two duelists.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:07:20 AM): "Summon Advanced Neo-Spacian Grand Mole." (900/300) > (1400/300)
Viewtiful Rekk (12:09:15 AM): "Grand Mole, direct attack! Drill Mole!" The collar closes around the mole's head and shoots for Adonis.
TheGymRat38 (12:09:48 AM): "Return service. Mirror Shard!"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:10:12 AM)
: (5700) "How unfortunate..."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:10:22 AM): "Your move."
TheGymRat38 (12:10:26 AM): "Draw!"
TheGymRat38 (12:10:44 AM)
: "I summon The Creator Incarnate!"
TheGymRat38 (12:11:03 AM)
: "Direct attack!"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:11:26 AM)
: "Ngh...!" Desdemona holds up an arm in defense. (3900)
Viewtiful Rekk (12:11:39 AM): He's tougher than Alexander and Mylene...
TheGymRat38 (12:11:51 AM): "I place one additional card face down and conclude my turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:11:59 AM)
: "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:12:35 AM): "Set one card face down. Summon Advanced Neo-Spacian Grand Mole."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:12:37 AM): "End turn."
TheGymRat38 (12:12:52 AM): "During your end phase I reveal my trap, Dust Tornado to eliminate your newly set card!"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:13:11 AM): Dust Hurricane appears and shatters. Desdemona frowns.
TheGymRat38 (12:13:41 AM): "I'll activate Dust Tornado's second effect and set a card from my hand face down."
TheGymRat38 (12:14:02 AM)
: "Draw!"
TheGymRat38 (12:14:26 AM)
: "Hmmm..."
TheGymRat38 (12:14:37 AM)
: "The Creator Incarnate....attack Grand Mole!"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:15:21 AM)
: Again, the monsters return to their respective hands.
TheGymRat38 (12:15:45 AM): "Second main phase, I summon The Creator Incarnate!"
TheGymRat38 (12:15:59 AM)
: "One card face down, end turn!"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:17:09 AM)
: "Draw...!"
TheGymRat38 (12:17:23 AM): "That monster of yours is rather troublesome."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:18:35 AM)
: "Advanced Neo-Spacian Glow Moss!" (800/900)
Viewtiful Rekk (12:18:52 AM): "Attack The Creator Incarnate!"
TheGymRat38 (12:19:21 AM): "Counter attack! Incarnate Blade!"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:19:49 AM)
: Desdemona snaps the top card from her deck and reveals it.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:21:47 AM)
: "Fake Hero, a Spell card!" Glow Moss darts past The Creator Incarnate, and throws a spear of light at him.
TheGymRat38 (12:22:50 AM): (4250)
Viewtiful Rekk (12:23:28 AM)
: "End turn."
TheGymRat38 (12:23:43 AM): "Draw!"
TheGymRat38 (12:24:05 AM)
: "Incarnate Blade!"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:25:34 AM)
: Again, Desdemona snaps the top card from her deck and reveals it.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:25:57 AM): Sangan. "The Battle Phase is ended."
TheGymRat38 (12:26:52 AM): "Very well, I end my turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:27:22 AM)
: "Draw."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:29:29 AM)
: "Set one monster...end turn."
TheGymRat38 (12:29:39 AM): "Draw!"
TheGymRat38 (12:30:42 AM)
: "Continuous magic, Card of Safe Return!"
TheGymRat38 (12:31:23 AM)
: "Next I send The Creator Incarnate to the grave to special summon The Creator(2300/3000) from my hand!"
TheGymRat38 (12:31:52 AM)
: "Discard one card, revive The Creator Incarnate!"
TheGymRat38 (12:32:02 AM)
: "From the effect of Card of Safe Return I draw one card!"
TheGymRat38 (12:32:48 AM)
: "The Creator Incarnate, attack the set monster!"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:33:07 AM)
: Sangan is destroyed. Desdemona fans out her deck.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:33:39 AM): She holds up Advanced Neo-Spacian Flare Scarab.
TheGymRat38 (12:34:16 AM): "Very well, The Creator attacks Glow Moss! Creation Reversal!"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:34:45 AM)
: "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:34:58 AM): She flips over Cross Porter.
TheGymRat38 (12:35:25 AM): Adonis says nothing as his monster returns to his side of the field.
TheGymRat38 (12:35:31 AM)
: "End."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:35:36 AM)
: "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:38:09 AM)
: She smiles very darkly. "Advanced Neo-Spacian Flare Scarab." (500/500) > (1000/500) > (3600/500)
TheGymRat38 (12:38:37 AM): "Reverse card open, Waboku!"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:40:20 AM): She growls. "You're starting to work my patience, Mr. Polyxena..."
TheGymRat38 (12:40:30 AM): "I hear that a lot honestly..."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:40:53 AM): "I've waited long enough..." Her eyes start glowing fiercely. Show me the darkness of your heart, Adonis Polyxena...
Viewtiful Rekk (12:43:00 AM): "..." A grin comes to her face for just a second.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:43:06 AM): "You say you hear that a lot?"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:43:15 AM): "Do you not get along well with the other students?"
TheGymRat38 (12:43:34 AM): "That's not quite how I'd put it."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:43:53 AM): "How would you put it?"
TheGymRat38 (12:45:34 AM): "There are times when my personality is...too much for others to handle. Perhaps I'm better in small doses..."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:46:37 AM): "Is it small doses, doses?"
TheGymRat38 (12:47:22 AM): "And what does it matter to you?"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:49:26 AM): "I merely desire to help."
TheGymRat38 (12:50:27 AM): "Then you are the same as I. I want to help...but more often than not my attempts to help others are rejected."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:52:49 AM): "Aah, I can sympathize with that..."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:52:57 AM): "But it doesn't seem fair. You're quite the skilled duelist."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:53:18 AM): "And obviously very well-off physically as well."
TheGymRat38 (12:53:51 AM): "Those are my obvious attributes, yes. But that isn't all there is to me, and it seems rarely do others see that."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:55:51 AM)
: She brings a finger to her lip. "What else is there, Adonis?"
TheGymRat38 (12:56:42 AM): Adonis slams a hefty fist against his chest.
TheGymRat38 (12:56:45 AM)
: "Everything!"
TheGymRat38 (12:57:08 AM)
: "My strength, my dueling...those are skills! They have nothing to do with who I am!"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:59:16 AM)
: "Ahh...but the problem is that others constantly reject your strenght..."
TheGymRat38 (1:00:10 AM): "My closest 'friends' are teachers who share some personality traits of mine and a few hobbies. Yet we aren't close despite that. Does that answer your question?"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:02:54 AM): "Ah...that isn't good..." She frowns a bit.
TheGymRat38 (1:06:08 AM): "There's nothing to be done about it."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:06:43 AM)
: "Maybe, maybe not...Spell Card - Fake Hero."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:07:08 AM): "I will Special Summon Elemental Hero Neos." (3000/2000)
Viewtiful Rekk (1:11:46 AM): "Elemental Hero Neos and Glow Moss Contact Fuse." The two heroes leap into the air.
Viewtiful Rekk (1:12:13 AM): "Summon Evil Hero Glow Neos." There's a bright flash, and when it clears, Neos descends again, armor glowing brightly. (3000/2000)
TheGymRat38 (1:12:49 AM): "Evil Hero? Isn't that a contradiction?"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:13:07 AM): She smiles. "Are you just noticing that?"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:13:17 AM): "It's a fairly popular set."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:16:52 AM)
: "Advanced Neo-Space gains two Spacia Counters for each monster shuffles for the Contact Fusion. And from Hyper Recycling..." She draws 1.
TheGymRat38 (1:18:09 AM): "That's more like it."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:19:03 AM)
: "Glow Neos's effect." She discards Elemental Hero Neos Alius.
Viewtiful Rekk (1:19:32 AM): Glow Neos creates a ball of light in its hand and flings it at The Creator.
TheGymRat38 (1:20:03 AM): "What?!"
TheGymRat38 (1:20:10 AM)
: The Creator shatters.
Viewtiful Rekk (1:20:28 AM)
: "By discarding a card from my hand, I can destroy one card of the same type on your field."
TheGymRat38 (1:20:41 AM): "Impressive..."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:21:31 AM)
: "When the card destroyed is a monster..." Both graveyards glow. "We both designate a monster. During our respective standby phase, it's Special Summoned."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:21:45 AM): "I select Neos Alius."
TheGymRat38 (1:22:16 AM): "I choose Majestic Mech-Goryu."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:23:32 AM)
: "Set on reverse. End turn."
TheGymRat38 (1:24:15 AM): "This should be famliar! During your end phase I reveal my face down card, Mystical Space Typhoon!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:24:27 AM)
: Mirror Force shatters.
TheGymRat38 (1:25:25 AM): "Draw!"
TheGymRat38 (1:25:49 AM)
: "Standby phase, Majestic Mech-Goryu(2900/1800) revives!"
TheGymRat38 (1:26:02 AM)
: "I draw one card!"
TheGymRat38 (1:31:07 AM)
: Adonis looked down at his hand, and then up at his field. "Hmmm..."
TheGymRat38 (1:34:43 AM)
: "Desdemona, there's something I've been meaning to ask."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:35:14 AM)
: "Ask away, Adonis."
TheGymRat38 (1:35:53 AM): "The way you've phrased things so far...your impersonation of Isabel Marias..."
TheGymRat38 (1:36:06 AM)
: "You're not a student here at the academy. Yet you knew who I was and challenged me to a duel."
TheGymRat38 (1:36:34 AM)
: "Then, during the course of the duel, you started to ask me personal questions. What I don't understand is why. Why the interest? What is it that you really want?"
TheGymRat38 (1:36:52 AM)
: "Though many take me as one, I'm no fool. This isn't just about the duel."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:40:09 AM)
: She just smiles. "Alright, I will be honest with you, Adonis."
TheGymRat38 (1:40:25 AM): "Thank you."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:40:55 AM)
: "You heard me mention my king earlier, yes?"
TheGymRat38 (1:42:07 AM): "I did, yes. One of the things that made it clear you aren't a student."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:42:28 AM)
: "This is Isabel Marias's body."
TheGymRat38 (1:42:40 AM): "What?!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:43:05 AM)
: "I am a demon." She smiles. "Her soul is dormant here, but I am the one that is in control."
TheGymRat38 (1:44:06 AM): "To be so calmly telling me all of this...what sort of person are you?"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:45:48 AM): "I am not doing anything wrong. That's why I can tell you."
TheGymRat38 (1:45:59 AM): "Not doing anything wrong?!"
TheGymRat38 (1:46:28 AM)
: "You're stealing a person's body, how is that fine? A dormant soul, a demon controlling a body like a puppet!"
TheGymRat38 (1:46:39 AM)
: "These are not things that are 'right' or 'okay'!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:46:48 AM)
: "I have been in this body since Isabel was in the womb."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:46:57 AM): "I have just as much right to be here as she does."
TheGymRat38 (1:47:28 AM): "Perhaps to be in her body...but to take her body for yourself to control? What gives you that right?"
TheGymRat38 (1:47:51 AM)
: "Did you ask her? Did she say 'here, take my body for whatever you wish'? Did she?!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:48:18 AM): "She is unable to hear my voice."
TheGymRat38 (1:49:38 AM): "What happened to her?"
TheGymRat38 (1:50:13 AM)
: He stalks forward and grabs her by the shoulders, looming over her. "Tell me!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:51:41 AM)
: She seems somewhat surprised by him grabbing her. "...Let go of me!" She attempts to remove his hands.
TheGymRat38 (1:52:11 AM): His hands clench tighter. "I won't allow it! I demand an answer! What's going on? What do you want from me?"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:55:02 AM)
: "I have been stuck here for 17 years! Unable to see my king! Unable to do anything but watch as this girl acts in a self-destructive manner!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:56:07 AM): "I only seek to be able to separate myself from her, and you accuse me of using her as a puppet?! I don't intend to stay here any longer than I have to!"
TheGymRat38 (1:59:05 AM): Adonis releases her and turns around. "And how do you separate yourself from her? The sooner you're gone, the sooner an innocent girl can be free to live her life again!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:59:39 AM)
: She lets out a low sigh. "I don't know. That's why I came here, so I could research it."
TheGymRat38 (2:00:35 AM): "And what does any of this have to do with me? Why did you challenge me?"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:01:24 AM)
: "...I see everything Isabel sees."
TheGymRat38 (2:01:36 AM): "Meaning?"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:01:45 AM)
: "I know your relationship to the rest of the student body."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:02:42 AM): "I was seeking to assist you so you would in turn assist me."
TheGymRat38 (2:04:05 AM): "How can you assist me? I've already said that there's nothing to be done about it. The other students don't agree with my personality or even try to understand me."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:04:29 AM)
: "What a defeatist point of view."
TheGymRat38 (2:06:18 AM): "You're trying to use magic to change something in your situation. My situation is my own personality and how others react to it? Are you suggesting I change who I am? Or force others to change? That's ludicrous."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:09:42 AM): "Personality is easily changed, Adonis."
TheGymRat38 (2:10:51 AM): He sweat-drops. "Only if your personality is supplanted by a demon..."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:11:50 AM)
: "You'll forgive me for not laughing."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:13:23 AM): "Changing your image is quite possible. You merely seem to not want to do so."
TheGymRat38 (2:13:46 AM): "It isn't that easy is it, not as you say. To change everything that I am..."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:14:43 AM)
: "Do you enjoy being defined only by your strength?"
TheGymRat38 (2:14:55 AM): "No."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:16:34 AM)
: "Yet you accept it, without making the effort to change how you are perceived."
TheGymRat38 (2:19:19 AM): "Even though it means I'm lonely...if they aren't willing to even try and understand me or accept my personality..."
TheGymRat38 (2:20:33 AM)
: "Then that's their miss out on someone like's their mistake!"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:21:48 AM)
: She smiles a bit, and her eyes start to glow again. "They won't even try to understand maybe you should pay them back for the way they treat you."
TheGymRat38 (2:22:29 AM): Adonis walks back to his spot on the field and turns around. "To be so casual about what others would consider wrong and to not worry about what others think...perhaps you have something there."
TheGymRat38 (2:23:32 AM)
: He looks down at the cards in his hand.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:24:00 AM)
: The glow becomes more and more fierce. "Yes. If they won't even make the effort to accept you as you are, then strike out at them! If they won't accept your strength, force them to see it!"
TheGymRat38 (2:24:40 AM): "To be honest, pay back sounds ridiculous. If all they want to see is my strength...then all I will show them is strength."
TheGymRat38 (2:25:32 AM)
: Adonis slams one of the cards into his duel coat. "Strength without limit! Brutal, unwavering, unstoppable strength! I'll show them a juggernaut of raw unfathomable power!"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:26:05 AM)
: The glow fades, and she smirks. "I think that sounds fantastic."
TheGymRat38 (2:28:40 AM): His field glows. "Adonis Polyxena is strong they say...they have no idea how strong I am! My help...they won't receive it! They'll receive only my crushing force!"
TheGymRat38 (2:29:46 AM)
: "Let me show you...the kind of power I can unleash on my opponents! Lightning Vortex!"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:30:36 AM): "...oh my."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:31:08 AM): "When Glow Neos is destroyed and Advanced Neo-Space is in play..." A card ejects itself and she holds it up. "Glow Moss returns to my hand."
TheGymRat38 (2:31:21 AM): "Useless!"
TheGymRat38 (2:33:34 AM)
: "Look at you! Your monsters are gone, your field is empty! All you have is this single worthless field space!"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:34:05 AM)
: "Advanced Neo-Space is the nexus of creation, my dear Adonis."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:34:17 AM): "But you are right about my field being clear."
TheGymRat38 (2:35:48 AM): He motions to his two monsters. "Everything is my advantage...including this! Reinforcements of the Armory!"
TheGymRat38 (2:36:13 AM)
: "I search my deck for one equip card and add it to my hand!"
TheGymRat38 (2:37:43 AM)
: A card ejects from his deck.
TheGymRat38 (2:37:48 AM)
: "Now, Premature Burial!"
TheGymRat38 (2:37:55 AM)
: (3450)
TheGymRat38 (2:38:21 AM)
: "The monster I discarded for Lightning Vortex, Mystic Beast King Barbaros(3000/1200) revives!"
TheGymRat38 (2:38:32 AM)
: "Now, one card, draw!"
TheGymRat38 (2:39:40 AM)
: "Normal summon Majestic Mech-Ohka(2400/1400)!"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:40:18 AM)
: Desdemona casually checks her score. "Heh..."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:40:36 AM): She places a hand to her deck. "I do believe I have lost, Adonis."
TheGymRat38 (2:41:41 AM): "No...not yet! Incarnate Blade!"
TheGymRat38 (2:43:29 AM): "Ohka, Majestic Burst!"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:43:57 AM): She's hit again. "Ngh...!"
TheGymRat38 (2:44:07 AM): "Barbaros! Lance of the Beast King!"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:44:34 AM): She's pierced by the lance, and stumbles backwards, her life points well below 0.
TheGymRat38 (2:44:48 AM): "Last one! Goryu, Holy Burst Stream!"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:47:51 AM)
: This time, the force of the attack makes her take a knee. "Still haven't gotten used to this Solid Vision..."
TheGymRat38 (2:48:27 AM): Adonis scowls and his duel coat shuts off. "How was that Desdemona? Good enough for you?"
TheGymRat38 (2:48:52 AM)
: He starts to shuffle his deck. "Or should I show you again, the level of my strength?"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:50:20 AM)
: "That was magnificent, Adonis." She smirks.
TheGymRat38 (2:51:49 AM): "Of course it was. I don't need you to tell me."
TheGymRat38 (2:51:55 AM)
: He turns and starts to walk away.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:52:09 AM)
: "So, what are you going to do now?"
TheGymRat38 (2:53:46 AM): "I haven't decided."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:54:13 AM)
: "If I require assistance, may I call you?"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:54:21 AM): "I can help you get more strength."
TheGymRat38 (2:55:09 AM): "Che, if you're so weak you need my help, then I'll aid you. I don't need your help to get stronger."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:55:40 AM)
: She nods. "Thank you."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:58:02 AM): Once he's gone, she sighs.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:58:13 AM): "Somehow, I feel like I cheated there..."
Viewtiful Rekk (3:02:03 AM)
: "Ah well..." She stands up. "Back to work...I mustn't be a burden to my king..."
Viewtiful Rekk (3:02:13 AM): With that, she walks off herself.
Viewtiful Rekk (3:02:18 AM): -----------------------------------------------------------------------
