kwikkidus (9:58:58 PM): "I told you, I can't get down unless I can reach my hair. And I can't reach my hair so I can't get down. Okay?"
Sinisquirrel (10:00:18 PM): (In Lily's case, her 'haunting' began when she holed herself up to work on her deck... and somehow the Ojamas decided they wanted to bother her.)
Viewtiful Rekk (10:02:44 PM): (...Tri. What? >>)
kwikkidus (10:03:03 PM): (Ed just said that. To nobody. XD)
Viewtiful Rekk (10:04:31 PM): (...>> ;)
Viewtiful Rekk (10:04:35 PM): (.....)
kwikkidus (10:04:43 PM): ((He's been doing that a lot.))
Viewtiful Rekk (10:06:23 PM): "...Poor kid. He's gone nuts. Isn't that right, pink elephant?"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:06:36 PM): "....Don't talk to me like that, you sack of crap!"
kwikkidus (10:06:48 PM): "Hey, she is not a sack of cra--Amado?"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:07:30 PM): "Oh YEAH?! WELL I THINK YOU'RE DRUNK!"
kwikkidus (10:08:21 PM): "Amado, is that you?!"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:09:26 PM): "Yes. It's me."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:09:38 PM): "Now will you wait a second, I'm trying to give this uppity elephant whatfor!"
kwikkidus (10:10:12 PM): "Hah, we may well be saved! Amado... did they restrain you too?"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:10:53 PM): "...Yeah."
kwikkidus (10:11:06 PM): "...Crud. Can you move at all?"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:12:59 PM): "....Just my head."
Sinisquirrel (10:13:20 PM): Somewhere, far off, a faint "brumm" kind of sound can be heard... followed by some screaming and some... swearing?
kwikkidus (10:13:31 PM): "...How dead are we?"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:13:34 PM): "...."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:13:46 PM): "Pretty dead."
kwikkidus (10:14:25 PM): "Yeah, I guess you're probably right... I mean, not even Dor--I mean, my friend could find a way out..."
Sinisquirrel (10:14:37 PM): "Stupid little... WHERE ARE THEY!?"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:15:27 PM): "....Waitasec."
kwikkidus (10:15:31 PM): "Huh?"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:15:33 PM): Amado strains his ears.
Sinisquirrel (10:16:02 PM): "That's it... Ojama Black, left. Yellow, right. Green, with me... AMADO, ED!?"
kwikkidus (10:16:33 PM): "...You hear that?! We're gonna' be saved! WE'RE GONNA BE SAVED!"
Sinisquirrel (10:16:34 PM): She's tearing the place UP looking for these two... after all, who cares what the property damage is where these people are concerned?
Viewtiful Rekk (10:17:00 PM): "I'M RIGHT HERE, LILY-CHAN!"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:17:28 PM): ...Yes, he's still in drag.
Sinisquirrel (10:17:48 PM): ...! Ear-perk. Ojama Green points out the way of the voice. "This way...!"
Sinisquirrel (10:18:05 PM): A hand reaches up to Lily's waist, trying to grab at the plastic katana that hangs there.
Sinisquirrel (10:18:26 PM): "ABSOLUTELY NOT!" she bellows before striking the hand with the blunt end of the chainsaw.
Sinisquirrel (10:19:10 PM): And, working her way inward, chaos following... she'd call out again. "Guys!?"
kwikkidus (10:19:54 PM): "WE'RE SAVED WE'RE SAVED WE'RE SAVED WE'RE SAVED!!!!"
Sinisquirrel (10:20:02 PM): ... Oh yeah, that'd be Ed...
Sinisquirrel (10:21:02 PM): Slashing, then kicking through a door, she'd find herself in a room with cells... rooms separated.
kwikkidus (10:21:51 PM): "Hey we're in here! Uhh! Let us out?"
Sinisquirrel (10:21:56 PM): "Well, now... who needs keys anyway?" Cue one slash through Ed's door.
kwikkidus (10:23:05 PM): "HAHA! We're alive! Uhh... Let me down, please?"
Sinisquirrel (10:23:21 PM): Of course, the heroic act might not be so heroic considering that the girl's barging in, hockey mask still on, panting like a thing gone mad.
Sinisquirrel (10:23:33 PM): She revs up the chainsaw. "Sure. Just hold real still."
kwikkidus (10:23:54 PM): "...On second thought, can you just get me a hairpin from my hair and hand it to me?"
Sinisquirrel (10:25:11 PM): "..." she pauses, thinking for a minute. "... Yes, that might be better." Turning off the damn machine, she does so...
Viewtiful Rekk (10:25:37 PM): "What about me!?"
kwikkidus (10:25:48 PM): Ed makes relativelyshort order of the lock on his one arm, and then the one on his other,before falling flat on his rear. "Go get Amado... I have to find mydeck."
Sinisquirrel (10:25:51 PM): Then an odd thought strikes her. "Since when does a guy like you know how to pick locks, anyway...?"
kwikkidus (10:26:14 PM): Ed runs past her, dodging the question. "No time to talk! Must find Doriado!"
Sinisquirrel (10:26:28 PM): "I'm getting there, Amado-kun!" Plucking the pin from the boy, she makes short order of another door.
Sinisquirrel (10:27:39 PM): Pushing the mask off her face, she gets to work on Amado's locks as well. "Miss me?"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:29:18 PM): "Well gee, not really, they had some great movies down he- YES DAMMIT, HURRY UP!"
kwikkidus (10:29:50 PM): "Deck deck where did they hide my de--Oh, thanks." he syas, before heading off that way. --->
Sinisquirrel (10:30:28 PM): "If I didn't think that there weren't people coming, I think I'd let you hang a little longer..." Pop, click. "There."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:32:30 PM): "Thanks..."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:32:40 PM): "...Did you bring him?"
Sinisquirrel (10:32:59 PM): "You think I wouldn't?" She holds 'him' up, handing it over in traditional samurai style.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:34:22 PM): He fastens his hand over it. "..."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:35:16 PM): He then falls over.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:35:31 PM): "..>They haven't fed us at all since we got here."
Sinisquirrel (10:36:54 PM): "A... ahh..." she bends down, putting the free arm under his, trying to support him. "Amazing that that guy even has the energy... C'mon, we're getting out of here."
kwikkidus (10:37:28 PM): Ed wanders back in hisown disk on hand, dragging behind him Amado's Duel disk, still completewith deck. "So... uhh... I found our stuff... when do we leave? And canyou carry this disk? It's heavy..."
kwikkidus (10:38:24 PM): ((Note: They weigh about what, five pounds? Two? Somewhere in there? XD))
Sinisquirrel (10:38:30 PM): (Heheh.)
Viewtiful Rekk (10:38:51 PM): He takes the disk back and slips it over his arm.
kwikkidus (10:40:24 PM): "Alright.. now the big question. How the hell do we get out of here?"
Sinisquirrel (10:41:00 PM): "The way I came... we follow the path of destruction." Lily gives a broad, eerie smile.
Sinisquirrel (10:43:02 PM): She looks around for a moment, seeking out her spirited little helpers... but they don't seem to be around. "Wonder what in god's name they're doing now." she mutters.
kwikkidus (10:43:46 PM): "This is going to becreepy, isn't it?" Ed asks, before sighing. "Maybe I was better off onthe wall. At least then she didn't go and freak out and run from someweird guys in thongs..." He wanders off, left arm dragging behind him.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:44:04 PM): "...."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:44:12 PM): "What the hell are you two going on about?
Sinisquirrel (10:44:58 PM): "Absolutely nothing." Lied. "Ready to go?"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:45:14 PM): "Sure. Whatever."
Sinisquirrel (10:47:04 PM): Lily and Amado follow after Ed, who has just been silently volunteered to go first. Can you say "bait?"
kwikkidus (10:47:50 PM): Ed is a little toobusy avoiding the occasional bloodpile or arm to notice that he's goingfirst. Needless to say, once the shock wears off, he's not being baitever again.
Sinisquirrel (10:48:27 PM): (So he wishes.)
kwikkidus (10:49:35 PM): (So he wishes.)
kwikkidus (10:52:09 PM): "So... do you think we're going to run into anyone on our way out, or did you scare the crap out of them all on the way in..?"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:52:20 PM): "Probably the latter."
kwikkidus (10:52:25 PM): "Hopefully."
Sinisquirrel (10:53:01 PM): "It better be the latter."
Sinisquirrel (10:55:22 PM): "T'was an excellent release of tension, though... it'll be good to catch up once we get back. I only hope I was right to let Sammi fight..."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:55:41 PM): "Who, the crazy bipolar chick?"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:55:45 PM): "Eh, she'll be fine."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:55:49 PM): "Who's she fightijng?"
Sinisquirrel (10:55:59 PM): "The short guy... Ein... I mean, Enishi."
kwikkidus (10:56:08 PM): "...They have a short guy?"
Sinisquirrel (10:56:52 PM): "About your size... huge Napoleon complex, though."
kwikkidus (10:57:08 PM): "I'm definitely going to go with Sammi to win this one, then."
Sinisquirrel (10:58:16 PM): "Mm." Lily nodded. "She had the right cards, last time I saw."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:58:55 PM): "...Oh geez."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:59:14 PM): "Does he talk like he loves the sound of his own voice?"
Sinisquirrel (10:59:40 PM): "On and ON."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:00:14 PM): "Yeeup. I've got a couple classes with him."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:00:18 PM): "Guy is a friggin' teacher's pet."
kwikkidus (11:01:05 PM): "Obelisk Blue, right? I don't think I've seen anyone less than blue here all day..."
Sinisquirrel (11:01:24 PM): "Mm, I believe he said something about how he couldn't be touched because of the faculty."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:02:02 PM): "Yeeup, sounds like him."
kwikkidus (11:02:43 PM): "He gets his grades from being a suck-up, eh?"
Sinisquirrel (11:03:37 PM): "Who knows...? The guy's a loser either way."
kwikkidus (11:05:55 PM): "If you say so..."
Sinisquirrel (11:07:26 PM): "Trust me..." she said with a twinge of sadness. "I know so."
kwikkidus (11:07:53 PM): "We won't know til' I meet him... I'm the weakest duelist here, and we all know it."
Sinisquirrel (11:08:26 PM): "... it's not about the dueling."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:08:54 PM): "...Don't like the sound of that."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:08:57 PM): "Elaborate."
kwikkidus (11:09:02 PM): "Then what is it about, huh?"
Sinisquirrel (11:09:11 PM): "There was... something. Something was wrong with him."
kwikkidus (11:10:04 PM): "Define 'wrong.'"
Sinisquirrel (11:10:16 PM): "It was like... I don't know. There was this... presence?" Lily didn't sound too confident here... everyone here knew she was off, and this probably didn't help.
kwikkidus (11:10:58 PM): "...Presence? Wait, wait, wait, what'd it look like?" Ed asks, now sounding positively interested.
Sinisquirrel (11:11:11 PM): "Uh, ah... well..."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:11:34 PM): " mean like a Duel Spirit or something?"
Sinisquirrel (11:11:56 PM): "It was... tall. In green... with glowing red eyes..."
kwikkidus (11:12:09 PM): "...Psychoshocker..?"
Sinisquirrel (11:12:38 PM): "Duel spirit...? Psychoschoker...? I'm not sure. But it was like death hanging over him."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:12:59 PM): "Bizzare..."
Sinisquirrel (11:13:42 PM): "But... it might have been just a dream... haven't been sleeping... much." Or at all, really.
kwikkidus (11:13:49 PM): "Psychoshocker... thathas to be it. But I wonder... usually Duel Spirits are benevolent." Edmutters, mostly to himself. He seems to be lost in thought at themoment, almost tripping over a severed leg.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:13:59 PM): "Pfft....joined the club." He mutters.
Sinisquirrel (11:14:58 PM): She finally decides to venture forth "... what's a duel spirit?"
kwikkidus (11:15:41 PM): "Spirits who are in the form of cards. Most of them are attached to a particular duelist, like Juudai has Winged Kuriboh."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:15:53 PM): "SCREW JUUDAI."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:16:00 PM): "....." *cough*
Sinisquirrel (11:16:22 PM): "Eeh!" almost tripped when he blurted that out.
kwikkidus (11:16:38 PM): "Fine then. Like Ihave Doriado, if you prefer. The point is, they exist, and they usuallybefriend a duelist. Not try to be evil."
Sinisquirrel (11:17:20 PM): Doriado... oh, right! That was the card Ed had talked about the other day.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:17:40 PM): "Hm...weird."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:17:56 PM): "So Mini-Me's Duel Spirit was whack for some reason..."
Sinisquirrel (11:19:05 PM): "Not try to be evil, huh?" she muttered, wondering if there was perhaps a line between good and evil... at least when it came to THOSE three.
kwikkidus (11:19:54 PM): "That is apparentlythe case... But... not everyone has duel spirits, and even fewer peoplecan see those other than their own. Though, this acadamy is like aconcentration of the weird."
Sinisquirrel (11:21:12 PM): Hearing this, Lily feels that maybe it was just a part of a strange dream... though it couldn't be, given the way she'd arrived here...
Sinisquirrel (11:21:39 PM): But there were stranger things in life, weren't there?
Viewtiful Rekk (11:23:41 PM): (Hrm....might as well wrap up at least one thing real quick. >>)
kwikkidus (11:23:59 PM): "Some people eventhink that having a duel spirit will make you somehow better, but itreally doesn't... I can tell you that for certain."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:24:10 PM): In the distance, towards the entrance, it sounds like...footsteps are coming towards them.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:24:57 PM): "...?"
kwikkidus (11:25:00 PM): "...Hide. Now." Ed hisses, before hiding behind one of the deader-looking dead bodies.
Sinisquirrel (11:25:00 PM): "Oh, not again..."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:25:49 PM): ...You guessed it. ".....Just my luck." He mutters as he sees the numerous body parts, and the three escapees.
kwikkidus (11:26:10 PM): "...You are... This Enichi person?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:26:17 PM): He sighs. "Yes..."
kwikkidus (11:27:03 PM): "...I will ask you once to please get out of my way?" Yep. Talking dead body, with no mouth moving.
Sinisquirrel (11:27:56 PM): Sigh. Well at least one of them had manners. "... I take it things didn't go so well with Sammi." she smirked.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:28:25 PM): He sighs, and holds up several cards.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:28:34 PM): "Eight cards..."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:28:42 PM): "That's all I have....the rest are gone."
Sinisquirrel (11:29:05 PM): "..." GO SAMMI! I wonder what happened...
Viewtiful Rekk (11:29:32 PM): He glances at the two.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:29:48 PM): "...I'll need the Armed Dragons...and the deck your father gave to you a bit longer..."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:30:43 PM): "If I'm to salvage this, I must work fast." He then just....walks right past them, and goes deeper into the base.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:30:51 PM): "......Th' hell just happened?"
Sinisquirrel (11:30:57 PM): Lily gave a half-shrug. "Fine. I came here for something more important anyway."
kwikkidus (11:31:06 PM): "...I don't know, but I'm debating following after him..."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:31:46 PM): "Pfft. Why not? WIth only eight cards, he couldn't put of much of a fight?"
Sinisquirrel (11:32:16 PM): "... Do as you will."
Sinisquirrel (11:32:41 PM): "Personally, I've never seen a better Get Out of Jail Free card in my life."
kwikkidus (11:33:22 PM): "Right. Thanks. And good luck... as for me, I'll see if I can figure out what the hellTerra Firma is really after." He replies, with one last wave, beforewandering back off down the corridor.
kwikkidus (11:33:39 PM): Complete with trail mix bars from a dead guard. >>'
Viewtiful Rekk (11:34:04 PM): "..."
Sinisquirrel (11:34:08 PM): "..." Now, this obviously doesn't sit right with the occult fanatic. She looks towards Amado.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:34:22 PM): "Think we should go after him?"
Sinisquirrel (11:35:14 PM): "You make the call. I believe I've made enough decisions for one day."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:36:50 PM): ".......Guuh...come on..."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:36:59 PM): He turns around and heads after the two very short people.
Sinisquirrel (11:37:40 PM): "Mm..." she smiled a little... and the 'chase,' as it were, was on.
kwikkidus (11:38:02 PM): "I wonder... what could this 'fire' of theirs be for..."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:39:14 PM): Enishi realizes he's being followed...and turns around.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:39:22 PM): ".....What is it?"
kwikkidus (11:39:59 PM): "I'm curious about the fire. What can I say..? I'm one of the best students Daitokuji-Sensei has."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:40:31 PM): "..." He sighs. "I don't care."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:40:55 PM): "I have little intention to do anything now except get my things, go back to my dorm, take a shower, and go to sleep."
kwikkidus (11:41:17 PM): "Right. So then, which way is it to the fire room?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:41:46 PM): "I'm not telling you. Get out of here." He rubs his temple.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:41:55 PM): (You can decide when Amado and Lily catch up, Jeanie. >>)
kwikkidus (11:42:28 PM): "I have my reasons forstaying. I want to see that fire... so I can learn about it. And morespecifically, what it does. This whole ruin is rather facinating..."
Sinisquirrel (11:42:33 PM): Right about the time they were told to leave, the last two arrive...
Sinisquirrel (11:43:37 PM): Although the girl prefers to stay behind a little. Contemplating what she saw earlier, looking at Enishi was akin to looking at a blurred photograph.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:44:14 PM): "No. Get out of here." He says a bit more forcefully.
Sinisquirrel (11:44:17 PM): (aka, what they refer to in anime as a 'ghost' photograph, wherein the doomed victim appears blurry)
Viewtiful Rekk (11:44:54 PM): "My patience has been drawn to its limits today....don't put me through anymore stress."
kwikkidus (11:45:32 PM): "You may want to watch out... that oversized robot behind you looks hungry." Ed comments, turning around, and heading back.
Sinisquirrel (11:46:23 PM): "He says as if he hasn't caused anybody stress..." she muttered lowly... and then, eyes widening, turning around quickly as the 'picture' seemed to be in focus.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:47:16 PM): "..."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:47:43 PM): Enishi just sighs and walks off.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:47:53 PM): "...Weird little kid."
kwikkidus (11:48:00 PM): "I am not."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:48:11 PM): "...No, him."
Sinisquirrel (11:48:21 PM): "Are so." Knowing full well that Amado was referring to the other guy.
kwikkidus (11:49:12 PM): "He looked mildlybeaten up, and the Android behind him seemed to be eyeing him quitehungrily. I don't know what happened between him and Sammi... but sheseems to have performed a number on him."
Sinisquirrel (11:49:16 PM): (So, wanna end here, pick up tomorrow if possible?)
kwikkidus (11:49:28 PM): ((I guess it can be assumed we leaved. >>'))
Sinisquirrel (11:49:44 PM): (Unless we want more Ojama/ Doriado intervention...)
kwikkidus (11:50:09 PM): (...The world can do with no Ojama/Doriado anything. So can Doriado, for that matter.)
Viewtiful Rekk (11:50:27 PM): (Arr, guess that's that then.)
Sinisquirrel (11:50:36 PM): (... I just mean that one of 'em could have seen something... but, eh. We can come back.)
kwikkidus (11:50:48 PM): (Yeah. But we did that plot device once.)
kwikkidus (11:50:52 PM): (Line time.)
Sinisquirrel (11:50:53 PM): (I'm sure we WILL be back, given that there are still decks missing and, uh...)
Sinisquirrel (11:50:56 PM): ---------------
