Viewtiful Rekk (10:55:00 PM): --------------------------------------------------------------------
Y Ruler of Time (10:57:00 PM): LAST TIME on Yu-Gi-Oh! GX RP!
Y Ruler of Time (10:57:11 PM): Meso: "Hai I'm back!"
Y Ruler of Time (10:57:16 PM): Isabel: "BASTARD!"
Y Ruler of Time (10:57:22 PM): Mylene: "BASTARD!"
Y Ruler of Time (10:57:27 PM): Meso: :-(
Y Ruler of Time (10:57:39 PM): Meso: "I WILL RELEASE MY QUEEN!"
Y Ruler of Time (10:57:46 PM): Isabel: "DUERU!"
Y Ruler of Time (10:57:58 PM): Meso: "lol I held back last time"
Y Ruler of Time (10:58:05 PM): Isabel: "So you got some new cards?"
Y Ruler of Time (10:58:09 PM): Meso: "Well, yeah."
Y Ruler of Time (10:58:21 PM): Isabel: SEIZURE ATTACK!
Y Ruler of Time (10:58:42 PM): Desdemona: "Hello there everyone, I speak in a ridiculously flowery style."
Y Ruler of Time (10:58:57 PM): Celeste: "GONNA FUCK YOU UP!"
Y Ruler of Time (10:59:13 PM): Desdemona: -NINJA CROSS STEAL-
Y Ruler of Time (10:59:19 PM): Celeste: "Damn it."
Y Ruler of Time (10:59:29 PM): Mylene: "Let her go, bitch!"
Y Ruler of Time (10:59:42 PM): Desdemona: -Nietzche wannabe speech-
Y Ruler of Time (10:59:58 PM): Desdemona: "You won't tell anyone about this, will you?"
Y Ruler of Time (11:00:14 PM): Mylene: "'course not...And I'm totally not lying."
Y Ruler of Time (11:00:35 PM): (it was philosophical, therefore it gets labelled as such)
Y Ruler of Time (11:00:47 PM): Desdemona: "...Right. Duel me."
Sinisquirrel (11:01:35 PM): "Huh? Duel you?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:01:46 PM): "Yes. Duel me."
Sinisquirrel (11:02:15 PM): "And if I win you leave Isa-chan alone!?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:02:33 PM): She sighs. "It's not that simple."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:02:45 PM): "I can't just snap my fingers and give control back to her."
Sinisquirrel (11:03:03 PM): "Fft. No deal."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:04:10 PM): "..." She massages her temple for a moment. "Fine. If you win, I'll start another Shadow Game, and give myself a penalty game to cede control of this body back to Isabel."
Sinisquirrel (11:05:00 PM): "Hah, you're on!" Mylene gets our her duel disk. "And if I lose?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:06:24 PM): She shrugs. "Nothing. I certainly hope you'll see my side of things, but I won't force you to do anything if I win."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:06:37 PM): "I however, would appreciate it if you wouldn't notify the teachers of my presence."
Sinisquirrel (11:06:59 PM): "Fine. If you win I won't tell any of the teachers about you."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:07:23 PM): She inclines her head. "Thank you."
Sinisquirrel (11:07:51 PM): "Not that I'm gonna lose...!"
Sinisquirrel (11:08:28 PM): Hah! Already got luck on my side! "It's my go!"
Sinisquirrel (11:10:07 PM): Mylene draws six and looks at her hand. "I'll start us off with a Field Spell." Her duel disk pops out a slot for the card. "Heavy Gravity! All monsters in our hands gain one level."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:10:10 PM): "Ah, and just for the sake of civility...." She slides five cards from the top of her deck.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:10:15 PM): "My name is Desdemona."
Sinisquirrel (11:10:37 PM): The field, just so you know, takes on the look of the inside of a... particular space ship.
Sinisquirrel (11:12:45 PM): "Then, another Spell Card - Wave Motion Cannon!" A large green canon pops up in front of Mylene. "And to end it, one defender and one reverse. Your move." Said as the two backs appear.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:13:00 PM): "Draw."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:13:40 PM): "I'm afraid I'll have to invalidate your spell." She places a card into her disk. "Activate Terraforming."
Sinisquirrel (11:14:24 PM): "Aw...!" She knew what was coming. No player ever played that without plunking down a Field Spell right after.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:14:53 PM): The field slot of her disk opened. "Field Spell - Advanced Neo Space."
Sinisquirrel (11:15:34 PM): "A-Advanced... Neo Space?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:16:11 PM): The space ship vanishes, as a cloud of blue space appears around them, waves of color shooting past them.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:17:25 PM): "You could call this card the cornerstone of my deck. It is where the majority of my cards derive their power from."
Sinisquirrel (11:18:06 PM): "Yeah? What's it do?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:18:16 PM): "Summon - Elemental Hero Neos Alius." A young hero in a silver suit appears, and lets out a battlecry. (1900/1300)
Viewtiful Rekk (11:18:37 PM): "First of all, all Advanced Neo-Spacian and Neos monsters gain 500 ATK." Neos Alius glows. (2400/1300)
Sinisquirrel (11:19:03 PM): Well, crap. That's pretty hefty...
Viewtiful Rekk (11:19:21 PM): "Neos Alius! Attack the set monster! Wrath of Neos!"
Sinisquirrel (11:19:31 PM): "Hah! To quote one of my favorite teachers..."
Sinisquirrel (11:20:00 PM): Mylene's set card turns over. "I don't think so!! Wall of Revealing Light!"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:21:02 PM): "Ah, but you'll have to pay at least 3000 life points to intercept my attack."
Sinisquirrel (11:21:19 PM): "Yeah, duh." (5000) "It's worth it!"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:21:45 PM): Neos Alius strikes the wall, and it does jack squat.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:21:55 PM): "Hrm. End turn."
Sinisquirrel (11:22:12 PM): "Draw!" A flourish of a card.
Sinisquirrel (11:22:47 PM): During her Standby Phase, Mylene's W-MC hums. (1 C)
Sinisquirrel (11:23:56 PM): "Hmmn... Flip summon Des Lacooda." The Zombie camel appears with a dull moan. (500/600) She draws one.
Sinisquirrel (11:24:50 PM): "I see, I see... Well, then. I'm gonna have to flip this guy back down, set another defender... and I think I'm gonna play a little thing called Card Trader."
Sinisquirrel (11:25:24 PM): "I don't get to use it yet, but... It's your turn, Dezzy!"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:25:36 PM): She smirks a little bit at the nickname. "Draw."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:27:57 PM): "Ah...I believe I will merely use this turn to Second Summon my Neos Alius." Neos Alius glows brightly "He is now counted as Elemental Hero Neos."
Sinisquirrel (11:28:34 PM): "Yeah? Huh..." Wonder what that'll do for 'er...
Viewtiful Rekk (11:29:15 PM): "As that takes up my Normal Summon, I'll end my turn."
Sinisquirrel (11:30:40 PM): "All righty, then I'll draw!" Again, flourish.
Sinisquirrel (11:31:01 PM): Standby Phase: W-MC (2 C)
Sinisquirrel (11:32:05 PM): "I'll activate the effect of Card Trader to shuffle one card from my hand to my Deck and draw one more."
Sinisquirrel (11:32:45 PM): "Then, once again flip over Des Lacooda..." And draw 1 more.
Sinisquirrel (11:34:30 PM): "Heh. Yeah, yeah, I'm a genius all right..." Mylene praises herself as she looks over her hand.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:34:36 PM): She smiles. "You have a very good source of advantage set up, as well as capability to strike my life points."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:34:42 PM): "You're quite skilled."
Sinisquirrel (11:35:34 PM): "And you're perceptive... but, please. Hearing Isa-chan talk like that gives me the willies."
Sinisquirrel (11:36:28 PM): "Since I don't really like that thing, I guess it's time to bring out my little friends... flip summon, Swarm of Locusts!" Bugs, bugs everywhere. "Get that Advanced Neo Space!"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:36:53 PM): The cloud is devoured, bit by bit.
Sinisquirrel (11:38:46 PM): "Yeah..." Mylene nods. "Good. Everybody, back down. I'll end this turn by tributing my Des Lacooda for a set monster." The back of a card appears... what could it be? "Your move."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:39:07 PM): "..aaah, I dare say I think I know what that is." She draws.
Sinisquirrel (11:39:29 PM): "... huh!? Oh, wait, right... you probably have access to her memories, huh?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:39:42 PM): "Everything she has seen, I have seen."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:40:42 PM): "I was wary of playing this last turn, but, since you destroyed my field spell..."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:40:50 PM): She slips the card into her disk. "Activate Wrath of Neos."
Y Ruler of Time (11:41:51 PM): (no it's not...)
Sinisquirrel (11:41:53 PM): "... wuhoh." Nothing with the word Wrath in it can be a good thing...
Viewtiful Rekk (11:41:54 PM): Neos Alius leaps into the air and brings a hand crashing down on the field, sending out shockwaves that wipe out everything.
Sinisquirrel (11:42:09 PM): "Awuh...! My setup!"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:43:31 PM): "By returning Elemental Hero Neos to my deck, the entire field is destroyed. And since he was the only card on my field at the time...
Viewtiful Rekk (11:45:38 PM): "I will then summoned Advanced Neo-Spacian Grand Mole." A brown mole wearing a spiked collar appears, a toothy grin on its face. (900/300)
Viewtiful Rekk (11:46:26 PM): "Grand Mole, attack directly."
Sinisquirrel (11:47:06 PM): Well, I wonder what it does without that 'cornerstone' car-- "Oof!" (4100)
Viewtiful Rekk (11:47:22 PM): "End turn."
Sinisquirrel (11:48:09 PM): "Kinda more like Isa-chan there... Draw!"
Sinisquirrel (11:49:38 PM): "Alright, let's try this again. Heavy Gravity!" Again, the inside of a spaceship overtakes the field.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:50:44 PM): "Aaah, that will be quite inconvenient..."
Sinisquirrel (11:51:03 PM): "I should hope so!" Mylene snaps, slapping down one more card. "One defender, end turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:51:27 PM): "Draw."
Sinisquirrel (11:54:53 PM): "S'wierd..."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:54:58 PM): "Hm?"
Sinisquirrel (11:55:29 PM): "You've been through everything she's been through... but you don't seem t'care about shoving her away..."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:56:45 PM): "'s not that simple."
Sinisquirrel (11:57:39 PM): "Y'say that a lot. Still doesn't explain why."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:57:45 PM): "Believe it or not, what's happening now is the best for Isabel."
Sinisquirrel (11:58:33 PM): "Bet she disagrees, and personally? I believe people know what's best for themselves."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:58:52 PM): "She's an intelligent girl, but she allows her temper to rule her, and it makes her act in a very self-destructive manner."
Sinisquirrel (11:59:40 PM): "Pft, so you shovin' her down and acting like some kind of princess is 'best?' Get on with your turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:00:45 AM): She smirks. "I can see you're quite a bit like her in that regard." She places a card down. "Summon Sangan." (1000/600)
Viewtiful Rekk (12:02:04 AM): "Grand Mole attacks the set monster." Grand Mole shoots at the monster and both fly back to their respective hands.
Sinisquirrel (12:02:36 AM): "Nuts." She knew it was coming, but... Mylene's hand is one more card larger.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:03:21 AM): "Sangan attacks directly." The demon shoots forward and rapidly scratches at Mylene.
Sinisquirrel (12:03:50 AM): "Hey, stoppat, geddoff!!" Mylene flails and kicks at the thing. (3100)
Viewtiful Rekk (12:04:49 AM): "I end my turn."
Sinisquirrel (12:05:46 AM): "Draw!" C'mon, deck... we gotta do this for Isa-chan... we can't let any more singleminded jerks ruin things for us...
Sinisquirrel (12:06:26 AM): "Cheh. One defender. End turn..."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:06:36 AM): She silently draws.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:06:46 AM): "...May I ask you a question, Mylene?"
Sinisquirrel (12:07:12 AM): "Y'just did."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:07:46 AM): "..." She smirks. "May I ask you another?"
Sinisquirrel (12:08:14 AM): Mylene smirks. "I hate running a joke into the ground, so... yeah. Sure!"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:09:21 AM): "You're a capable duelist, as well as a gifted mechanic...but you keep, for lack of better word, a childish aura about you."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:09:29 AM): "Why is that?"
Sinisquirrel (12:10:33 AM): "I dunno," Mylene shrugs. "S'far as I can tell, y'don't have to be mature to make machines."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:11:17 AM): "It would certainly help others take you seriously."
Sinisquirrel (12:11:58 AM): "I don't have problems with the people I need to impress." Mylene says with a grin.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:13:32 AM): " you use it as a defense mechanism?"
Sinisquirrel (12:14:07 AM): "What's it t'you if I do, huh?" The blonde tilts her head.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:14:10 AM): "If you were to fail, people will doubtlessly think 'Well, she's just a child, it can't be helped.' rather than forcing you to admit to your own personal failings."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:15:00 AM): "Ah, it's nothing, really. I am just interested by human nature." She places down the mole again. (900/300)
Sinisquirrel (12:15:06 AM): "Hey, now! That's just a load of shit there! Ninety-nine failures to one success is my motto!"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:15:27 AM): "Is it? I wonder."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:15:36 AM): "Grand Mole attacks the set monster, triggering its effect."
Sinisquirrel (12:16:07 AM): "Great." I'm gonna get freakin' nibbled t'death at this rate.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:16:30 AM): "Set one card face down. Sangan attacks directly." The critter leaps forward again.
Sinisquirrel (12:17:10 AM): "Blargh!" Mylene fends it off with her duel disk. (2100)
Viewtiful Rekk (12:19:45 AM): "I end my turn."
Sinisquirrel (12:19:53 AM): "Draw...!"
Sinisquirrel (12:21:22 AM): "All right! Go, Nightmare's Steelcage!" A large (duh) cage appears around the field.
Viewtiful Rekk (12:21:53 AM): "Ah..." She puts a hand to the cage as it forms.
Sinisquirrel (12:23:18 AM): "It's not half as trapped as I bet she feels. But, hey, if you've got nothing for it... I'll just set a defender and end my turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:23:32 AM): She draws
Viewtiful Rekk (12:34:07 AM): "Well...with this cage in play, there's not much I can do."
Viewtiful Rekk (12:34:27 AM): "So I believe I'll take a different approach this turn." Her eyes begin to glow silver.
Sinisquirrel (12:34:49 AM): "This gonna be one of those hax things where you draw some insane card?"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:35:39 AM): "Ah, nothing so crude..." The whole landscape around them is slowly blotted out until everything is black.
Sinisquirrel (12:35:58 AM): "... ah, shit." I hate magic. What the hell?
Viewtiful Rekk (12:36:39 AM): She smiles. "Mylene, I just wish to get to know you a bit better." And slowly, like a scene from a movie, things begin forming around them again.
kwikkidus (12:41:28 AM): In a sandbox, a small boy with messy black hair was busily pushing sand up into a little pile with a blue flag atop it. "Hey... see how big I can make my castle? It's cool, huh?"
Sinisquirrel (12:42:16 AM): "Oh, no..." Current Mylene groans as she sees her smaller self turn around, laughing.
Sinisquirrel (12:42:42 AM): "Yeah! But it needs... something..." The even tinier than now blonde snaps her fingers. "A moat!"
kwikkidus (12:44:17 AM): "Yeah... a moat... and then a bridge.. .and.. and crocodiles. For anyone who dares assault it!" He throws a hand energetically into the air. "This will be the best castle ever!"
Sinisquirrel (12:44:56 AM): "Psht, crocodiles. Tanks, I say!"
Viewtiful Rekk (12:46:20 AM): Desdemona chuckles a bit as she watches the two. "That's very cute."
Sinisquirrel (12:46:44 AM): "It doesn't last."
kwikkidus (12:46:52 AM): "...Underwater tanks?" he says quietly. "That doesnt work..."
Sinisquirrel (12:47:39 AM): "Yuh-huh, y'ever hear of submarines? Geez, Ed."
kwikkidus (12:49:21 AM): "...A submarine-tank..." He puts a hand to his chin. "...Dori-chan's not so sure that's a good idea."
Sinisquirrel (12:50:00 AM): Mylene harumphs. "What's 'Dori-chan' know 'bout it?"
kwikkidus (12:51:54 AM): "She says that tanks don't work right like that..." he said with a tone that usually meant 'that is that.'
Sinisquirrel (12:52:31 AM): "Well, I say they could if I made 'em." Said with the 'so there' tone!
kwikkidus (12:55:18 AM): "Yeah... you can make anything, can't you?" He smiles a bit, before looking up at the sky. "She's real, you know. I mean it!" But... nobody had even asked?
Sinisquirrel (12:56:31 AM): "Yeah? And?"
kwikkidus (12:57:10 AM): "...And I'll prove it." He nods, smiling. "I mean it."
Sinisquirrel (12:58:13 AM): "How? I mean..." He couldn't really do anything, right?
kwikkidus (1:00:15 AM): "Magic... I'm going to learn magic!" He nods to her, before holding up a stick with weird carvings on it that was taller than he was. "My sis gave me this... after she caught me last time."
Sinisquirrel (1:00:32 AM): Mylene laughed. "Caught you?"
kwikkidus (1:01:53 AM): "Well she... She's scary." He shivers. "Alwys with the new test products and stuff... she calls it playing but... reeh.."
Sinisquirrel (1:02:47 AM): "That's... that's wierd, Ed."
kwikkidus (1:04:32 AM): "She's... ahaha, I don't like her. At all. If mom and dad were still here... but they ran away. But you know that... why am I rambling, anyways?"
Sinisquirrel (1:05:49 AM): "I dunno... you get like that every time y'mention 'Dori-chan,' these days."
kwikkidus (1:07:58 AM): "O...oh. Right... I'm sorry." He nods his head, before shoving more sand onto the pile. "I'm going to be the greatest wizard ever someday, y'know."
Sinisquirrel (1:08:52 AM): "Yeah, well... what is it with her, anyway? Like, is she haunting you or something?"
kwikkidus (1:09:25 AM): "Kinda... Dori-chan's a duel spirit! Like... with cards."
Sinisquirrel (1:10:08 AM): "And... that's it?"
kwikkidus (1:11:42 AM): "Well... she said she wanted to live among humans... so I wanted to help her... 'cause she's a nice lady."
kwikkidus (1:11:54 AM): "So... I'm going to help."
Sinisquirrel (1:12:18 AM): "Yeah? Well, I guess I could help, too..." Even if it does sound like a load of hooey.
kwikkidus (1:12:39 AM): "...You... can't help. It's my thing to do."
Sinisquirrel (1:13:23 AM): "Huh? Why not? I wanna!"
kwikkidus (1:14:22 AM): "Because I have to be the one to make her real, Mylene..! It's my goal!"
Sinisquirrel (1:14:46 AM): "But... why? I mean... is there some kinda rule...?"
kwikkidus (1:16:00 AM): "It's just that I can't have help!"
Sinisquirrel (1:17:15 AM): "Izzat 'can't' or 'don't want?'" Younger and older Mylene frown.
kwikkidus (1:18:24 AM): "It's... It's that I don't want your help! I wanna do it myself!"
Sinisquirrel (1:19:06 AM): "Or maybe 'my help' isn't good enough?"
kwikkidus (1:20:28 AM): "M..maybe! Reeh... Mylene... Dori-chan says you don't have any magic stuff."
Sinisquirrel (1:21:18 AM): "So!?" Mylene jumps up. "What's that mean? What's she know!?"
kwikkidus (1:22:26 AM): "It means..." He looks at the sandcastle. "Mylene... you can't help me, even if you want to! And if you want to... then... then that makes us rivals!"
Sinisquirrel (1:23:09 AM): "That...! That doesn't make any...!" Mylene stamps her foot. "FINE, THEN!"
kwikkidus (1:23:46 AM): "Y..yah! From now on... I don't wanna be your friend anymore, rival!" He stands up too, stamping right back.
Sinisquirrel (1:24:33 AM): "...!!" Mylene pauses for a moment. It looks like she's about to ask a confused 'what,' but instead just becomes angrier. "Then don't you come near me ever again!"
kwikkidus (1:25:06 AM): "Reeh..fine! Same to you! I didn't want to make a stupid moat anyways!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:25:44 AM): "Oh my..." Desdemona mutters, bringing a hand to her mouth.
Sinisquirrel (1:25:54 AM): "BLEEEGHHH!" Mylene makes a face before covering her mouth and runs off.
Sinisquirrel (1:26:26 AM): "Shut up, we were five." Mylene mutters, running the back of her jacket across her face.
kwikkidus (1:26:35 AM): Ed harrumphs, and goes right back to making his sand pile castle.
Viewtiful Rekk (1:27:39 AM): Just like that, everything turns black again, before the two are back on the dueling field.
Sinisquirrel (1:27:52 AM): "What the hell was that about, anyway!?"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:27:56 AM): "Regardless of age, there was little call for the way he acted to you."
Sinisquirrel (1:29:30 AM): "Butt out," Mylene growls.
Viewtiful Rekk (1:30:16 AM): "Ah, it still hurts, doesn't it?"
Sinisquirrel (1:30:30 AM): "No shit it does, but what would you know!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:30:56 AM): "I've seen you and I've seen him. I know quite a bit."
Sinisquirrel (1:31:31 AM): "Seeing doesn't mean knowing, y'body snatcher."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:34:38 AM): She merely smiles. "I will summon my Grand Mole again and end my turn." (900/300)
Sinisquirrel (1:35:10 AM): Condescending... why are they always looking down like that? Don't know a thing, that's what... "Draw!"
Sinisquirrel (1:37:11 AM): "Flip summon - Stealth Bird!" A blue-feathered bird appears and takes a dive for Isamona.
Viewtiful Rekk (1:38:03 AM): She holds up an arm in defense as the bird strikes her. (7000)
Sinisquirrel (1:39:08 AM): "Stealth Bird, back down. Set another defender... and end my turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:39:21 AM): "Draw."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:40:39 AM): "I will summon Neo-Spacian Aqua Dolphin in defense." A blue humanoid dolphin appears, arms crossed. (600/800)
Viewtiful Rekk (1:40:55 AM): "End turn."
Sinisquirrel (1:42:11 AM): Nightmare's Steelcage disappears. Okay. Gotta do something before she can hit again. Guh... hard to think after seeing that stupid thing...
Sinisquirrel (1:42:14 AM): "Draw!"
Sinisquirrel (1:43:22 AM): "Flip summon - Stealth Bird and Stealth Bird." This time, two of the swift birds appear and dive for Mylene's opponent.
Viewtiful Rekk (1:43:34 AM): (5000)
Viewtiful Rekk (1:43:42 AM): She smiles. "You made good use of those two turns."
Sinisquirrel (1:43:55 AM): "Don't even start!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:44:09 AM): "I am merely paying you a due compliment."
Sinisquirrel (1:45:22 AM): "After pulling that stunt? You've got some freakin' nerve, bringing that up!" Mylene slaps a card onto her disk. "Birds, back down, and one defender! End turn!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:46:02 AM): "Draw."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:48:28 AM): "Please, do not mistake my intentions, Mylene. I merely wished to show you...or rather, remind you of that boy's nature before you made the mistake of letting him into your heart a second time."
Sinisquirrel (1:49:08 AM): "I'm... I'm sure it's gotta be different..."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:49:48 AM): "It will not. Shortly after that experience, he moved back to France and met Isabel. The two have been close since then."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:50:01 AM): "He's just the same, if not worse. All he cares about is that Duel Spirit."
Sinisquirrel (1:50:38 AM): "Yeah...?" I didn't know they met that soon...
Viewtiful Rekk (1:52:35 AM): She nods. "He is obsessed with it. He would just reject you again."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:54:02 AM): "He just looks down on you, like so many others, I'm sure your aware. Your inability to use magic. Your 'childish' apperance."
Sinisquirrel (1:54:21 AM): "..." Could she trust that? For one thing, she was a no-good thief as far as Mylene knew... but if she had really experienced everything Isabel had...
Sinisquirrel (1:54:34 AM): "Don't care about that. Does he love her or somethin'?"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:54:56 AM): "The Duel Spirit?"
Sinisquirrel (1:55:17 AM): "Yeah, her!"
Viewtiful Rekk (1:56:07 AM): "It is certainly possible, if not likely."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:56:15 AM): "I'm certain he loves her more than he could love you."
Sinisquirrel (1:57:21 AM): "Well, that's just great. First you snatch up my best friend and then you tell me I'm doomed to failure..."
Viewtiful Rekk (1:57:46 AM): "When have I said you were doomed to failure?"
Sinisquirrel (1:58:24 AM): "Fail, reject, whatever. Get on with it. At least I know I can win this!"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:00:18 AM): "Even if you were to win this duel, where would you go from here?"
Sinisquirrel (2:00:31 AM): "To class."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:01:43 AM): Her eyes glow silver again, but more softly this time. "Say that Isabel came back and everything returned to normal. What is that."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:01:46 AM): "Being rejected by that boy? Even Isabel herself is choosing the Maeromunes over you as of late."
Sinisquirrel (2:02:18 AM): "Hey... I don't think she's..."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:03:19 AM): "She identifies with them. She knows their pain and they know hers. More than anything else, she just wants somebody that understands her feelings."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:03:32 AM): "Were she to have succeeded in rescuing them, she would've chosen them over you."
Sinisquirrel (2:04:08 AM): "I don't... I don't think so..." But then, hadn't Isabel been so friendly towards whoever the real Meso had been at that time?
Sinisquirrel (2:04:30 AM): And wasn't she just the same, insisting that she didn't need her help? Why doesn't anyone want my help, anyway...?
Sinisquirrel (2:04:36 AM): What is it about me...?
Viewtiful Rekk (2:05:13 AM): "You remember how she acted when she met the real him. When she could tell he was like her, they were friends almost immediately."
Sinisquirrel (2:05:39 AM): "Yeah, well... Isabel is Isabel."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:05:41 AM): "She struck out by herself, not even desiring your help. Can you be sure she doesn't resent your intrusion?"
Sinisquirrel (2:06:46 AM): "Why would she!? What's so wrong about getting a little help from the people who care, huh!?"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:07:37 AM): "She never wanted your help in the first place."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:08:11 AM): "'Why did she butt in like that? She can't even use magic. Does she think I'm some fucking helpless idiot or something?!'" Said exactly in the tone Isabel would use.
Sinisquirrel (2:08:55 AM): "She wasn't complaining when that wolf thing was about to chomp her in half..." Mylene mumbled.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:10:19 AM): "She was angry at herself that she had dropped her guard, and had failed to save the two of them. But soon enough, her thoughts turned back to your intrusion."
Sinisquirrel (2:10:52 AM): "And what are you gonna do about it, huh?"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:12:15 AM): "I'm not doing anything. I'm merely informing you of things I believe you have a right to know."
Sinisquirrel (2:13:06 AM): "Why?"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:14:56 AM): "As I said, I've seen everything Isabel has.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:15:06 AM): "I believe it's...unfair the way you've been treated."
Sinisquirrel (2:15:15 AM): "... yeah...?"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:15:48 AM): She nods. "Despite what you doubtlessly think by this point, I bear no ill will against you."
Sinisquirrel (2:16:51 AM): "Hard to believe when someone takes away your best friend..."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:17:44 AM): Desdemona smiles a bit sadly. "You've said several times she's your best friend. Do you know if she saw you the same way?"
Sinisquirrel (2:18:02 AM): "Lemme guess: No, huh?"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:18:54 AM): "She did always consider the Finklestein boy, or even the Maeromune twins more important than you."
Sinisquirrel (2:19:20 AM): "... figures..." Again, the back of her sleeve is wiped across her face.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:22:51 AM): Desdemona is silent for a moment. "Do you have any friends besides Isabel?"
Sinisquirrel (2:23:18 AM): "... Not really..."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:26:59 AM): "..." The Field slot of her deck opens again. "Once more, I will activate Advanced Neo-Space."
Sinisquirrel (2:27:27 AM): "Crud..."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:27:56 AM): "I will then summon Cross Porter." (400/400)
Sinisquirrel (2:28:36 AM): "Greeeat. What's it do?"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:28:38 AM): A red-armored spike-covered robot appears. "Cross Porter's effect." Sangan evaporates. "By sending one monster on my field to the graveyard, I can Special Summon 1 Neo-Spacian from my hand."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:29:08 AM): "Summon Advanced Neo-Spacian Black Panther." (1000/500)
Viewtiful Rekk (2:30:12 AM): "And by Sangan's effect..." She fans out her deck, and holds up Advanced Neo-Spacian Air Hummingbird.
Sinisquirrel (2:30:48 AM): "... sheesh."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:31:17 AM): "And then by Cross Porter's effect once more, I will send it to the grave to Special Summon my Hummingbird." (800/600)
Viewtiful Rekk (2:32:12 AM): "When Cross Porter itself is sent from to my grave, I may add one Neo-Spacian from my deck to my hand." This time, she holds up Flare Scarab.
Sinisquirrel (2:33:01 AM): "Really going for it, huh? I wonder if that's from her or you."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:34:20 AM): "I apologize for the long-winded setup."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:34:26 AM): "Activate Spacia Gift." The four spacians glow.
Sinisquirrel (2:34:48 AM): "No, please, do go on..." She'd make a face if she had the energy for it.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:35:01 AM): "For every Neo-Spacian on my field, I may draw once." She draws four times.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:37:40 AM): "Air Hummingbird's effect." The bird sucks energy from Mylene's hand and transfers it back to Desdemona. (6500)(2:38:25 AM) kwikkidus has entered the room.
Sinisquirrel (2:38:26 AM): Darnit, all that work...
Viewtiful Rekk (2:39:56 AM): "I'll activate Fake Hero. This allows me to Special Summon 1 Elemental Hero from my hand."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:40:06 AM): "I choose to summon Elemental Hero Prismer." (1700/1000)
Sinisquirrel (2:40:08 AM): Groan.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:40:55 AM): "Prismer's effect." She discards Elemental Hero Neos from her deck. The mirror monster takes the form of the discarded hero.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:42:41 AM): "I will initiate Contact Fusion for Air Hummingbird and Neos." The two shoot up into the sky and a bright flash comes down. When the flash clears, a red-armored hero stands in their place. (3000/2100)
Viewtiful Rekk (2:42:45 AM): "Evil Hero Air Neos."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:44:03 AM): She then holds up a card from her hand. "Advanced Miracle. This allows me to use the Neos in my grave and the Grand Mole on my field to conduct a second Contact Fusion." Again, Neos and the Spacian fuse.
Sinisquirrel (2:44:06 AM): Man... so glad I've got defenders...
Viewtiful Rekk (2:44:17 AM): This time, leaving a brown-armored hero with a massive drill on one arm. (3000/2100)
Sinisquirrel (2:44:41 AM): "The crap is that?"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:45:08 AM): "Evil Hero Grand Neos."
Sinisquirrel (2:46:13 AM): "... an' what's it do, huh?"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:46:35 AM): "First off, Air gains 1 counter for every 500 point difference in our life points."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:47:24 AM): "I currently have 6500 while you have he gains 8 counters. And he gains 500 ATK for each one."
Viewtiful Rekk (2:47:39 AM): (7000/2100)
Viewtiful Rekk (2:48:53 AM): "Grand Neos has the capability to return one card on the field to the owners hand once per turn."
Sinisquirrel (2:48:56 AM): Mylene gulps.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:49:06 AM): "And Air Neos can give up two of its counters to destroy 1 card on the field once per turn."
Sinisquirrel (2:49:45 AM): Can people fold in one of these games? Nah! That's not me!
Viewtiful Rekk (2:50:31 AM): "Lastly, the spell Common Soul. By designating one monster, such as my Black Panther, I can Special Summon a Neo-Spacian from my hand." Flare Scarab appears. (500/500)
Viewtiful Rekk (2:51:40 AM): "Flare Scarab gains 300 ATK for every spell and trap on my field." (1400/500) "And then all of its ATK is transferred to Black Panther." (2400/500)
Sinisquirrel (2:52:14 AM): "Gimme a break..." Mylene groans, suddenly wishing she were the type to fold.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:52:15 AM): "Grand Neos and Air Neos's effects will dispose of your newly set monster and one of the Stealth Birds." Air Neos sends out a shockwave, while Ground Neos creates a black hole with its drill.
Sinisquirrel (2:52:38 AM): Both monsters disappear, leaving the one card in the middle.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:53:14 AM): "Grand Neos strikes the remaining Stealth Bird." It hefts up its giant drill and rams the defender straight on.
Sinisquirrel (2:53:38 AM): It, too, explodes.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:53:55 AM): "Black Panther attacks directly." The cat growls and leaps across the field, before clawing at Mylene once.
Sinisquirrel (2:55:12 AM): Dammit... Sorry, Isa-chan... If you even wanted me to do this... Mylene cries out and falls to her knees as her Life Points fall to 0.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:55:34 AM): Air Neos boggles for a second. Grand Neos pats him on the back once as they both fade.
Viewtiful Rekk (2:56:57 AM): Desdemona walks across the field and holds out a hand to Mylene to help her up.
Sinisquirrel (2:57:56 AM): Mylene just holds her hand up, quietly refusing. "Did she even... want me to help, now?"
Viewtiful Rekk (2:58:51 AM): "...I can't say. I don't know that she's thought of you once since she lost that duel."
Sinisquirrel (2:59:23 AM): "Even if I try so hard... That's so unfair."
Viewtiful Rekk (3:00:31 AM): "..." She nods. "It is."
Sinisquirrel (3:01:52 AM): "Why...? Is it 'cause I look like this or 'cause... what? Because I don't act like some regular goofy teenager...?"
Sinisquirrel (3:03:34 AM): "Maybe 'cause I can't do magic...?"
Viewtiful Rekk (3:03:43 AM): "She thinks that your lack of magical aptitude...inability to see Duel Spirits, it irrevocably separates the two of you."
Sinisquirrel (3:04:27 AM): "... I hate magic... ruins everything. Even friendships... just 'cause I can't and they can..."
Viewtiful Rekk (3:07:45 AM): She looks down at her for a moment, and offers her hand again. "If you would accept it, I'd be glad to offer my own friendship."
Viewtiful Rekk (3:07:59 AM): "Something as simple as your inability to preform magic...would not affect it."
Sinisquirrel (3:08:36 AM): "Will you let Isabel come back...? I... I don't care if she doesn't see me as equal..."
Viewtiful Rekk (3:09:37 AM): "...As soon as I can find some way for us to exist separately without having to seal the other, I will."
Sinisquirrel (3:09:51 AM): "... all right..." Mylene holds up her small hand.
Viewtiful Rekk (3:11:32 AM): Desdemona smiles and takes her hand, before helping her up.
Viewtiful Rekk (3:13:10 AM): -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
