Rekk (6:03:46 PM):----------------------------
(6:04:27 PM): As
the Infernalqueen deals with the patient, Zaniah pulls out her PDA, and
taps out a message to Al. "Are you available to take a call at the moment?"
Chaos (6:06:01 PM):Dawn
sits outside Casey's window, tapping lightly.
Rekk (6:06:26 PM):"What."
Alastor snaps irritably into his PDA.
(6:07:15 PM): "Now,
now, now, that is no way to talk to me, Alastor. Especially when I feel
like sharing information that may interest you."
Kitsune (6:07:27 PM):Casey
blinked, and turned toward the window. He opened the window. "Dawn?"
Chaos (6:07:45 PM):"We
got a monarch to kill."
Rekk (6:10:29 PM):"...What?"
Kitsune (6:11:25 PM):Casey
gave a nod. "Right. Just one moment!" He reached back and grabbed two decks.
"All right. Meet you down there."
(6:11:28 PM): "We
had a very interesting admission to the infirmary... that white-haired
boy... what was his name? Century Sidekick?"
Rekk (6:11:47 PM):"....Chuck
Rekk (6:11:55 PM):"...
I mean. Eon!"
Chaos (6:13:17 PM):"Right,"
Dawn just jumped to the ground.
Kitsune (6:14:18 PM):Casey
eyed her for a moment, grabbing something from his backpack... then shook
his head, simply running downstairs. Soon, he was down, rejoining Dawn.
Kitsune (6:15:35 PM):He
sighed. "Okay. To the volcano, right?"
Chaos (6:15:59 PM):"Well,
I got Takumi's Burning core for us." Burning Core looks like a tricked
out Gradius for the most part, with flame designs on it.
Kitsune (6:16:33 PM):Casey
eyed the card with a bit of skepticism. "Right... you think that will keep
us from getting scortched to death?"
Chaos (6:17:20 PM):"Better
than nothing." She plays the card on her duel claws and the small fighter
Kitsune (6:20:24 PM):Casey
shivered at the sight and the thought of riding it made him a bit nervous.
"Well.. This is going to be VERY different."
Chaos (6:21:01 PM):Dawn
climbs into the pilot seat, two seats in the back.
Kitsune (6:22:11 PM):Casey
sighed, and hopped aboard the passenger seat. "You know how to pilot this
thing at least?"
Chaos (6:22:39 PM):"Dude,"
holographic rock star appears in the third seat, "She totally knows how
Chaos (6:23:35 PM):"I'm
Burnie, the most rocking AI on any of the fleet ships!"
Kitsune (6:23:49 PM):Casey
blinked. "... Okay, you gotta be kidding me..."
Chaos (6:24:50 PM):Dawn
sighs, "Let's go." she starts up the engines. As it starts, hard
rock plays through the ship.
Kitsune (6:25:43 PM):"The
last thing I need is to believe a ship's AI is a surfer dude..." He winced.
"Rock music, why am I not surprised?"
Chaos (6:26:33 PM):Burnie
Chaos (6:27:03 PM):Dawn
shakes her head, "He's always like that."
Kitsune (6:28:10 PM):Casey
sweatdropped. "Yeah... Hopefully the monarch won't hear us coming MILES
Chaos (6:29:03 PM):"Cockpit
is soundproof, but he'll hear the engines, They roar like a lion!" Burnie
answers, still headbanging.
Kitsune (6:30:28 PM):He
grumbled. "Of course... no rock star can go without a loud vehicle." He
shook his head.
Kitsune (6:30:31 PM):"Anyways,
any tactics in mind when we get there?" He pulled out a deck, and started
to look through the cards carefully.
Chaos (6:31:34 PM):Dawn
shakes her head, "Takumi explained it had to do with the size of the ship,
it's small with oversized engines. Only ship that can go into the volcano,
which should be inactive, but overheated due to Thestalos."
Kitsune (6:31:50 PM):"Go
Chaos (6:32:04 PM):Anyway,
off to the volcano. In as close to silence as they can get.
Kitsune (6:34:11 PM):Casey
kept his eyes fixed to the front... trying to avoid eye contact with the
crazy headbanger, trying to stop his foot from tapping to the rhythm.
Kitsune (6:34:47 PM):tapping*
Chaos (6:39:27 PM):So
the small overpowered space fighter, which everyone on campus can't ignore,
but can be ignored as just another jet.
Chaos (6:39:49 PM):It
entered the volcano conviently placed on the island.
Rekk (6:41:07 PM):As
the space fighter enters the volcano... it would find a rather large ball
of molten rock being flung at its cockpit.
Kitsune (6:41:17 PM):Casey
eyed the volcano. "... Good thing this is-WOAH!"
Chaos (6:41:49 PM):Dawn
launches a few of the rockets off at the molten rock, shattering the thing.
"Great, he's up and about!"
Rekk (6:42:01 PM):"WHO
Kitsune (6:42:16 PM):"Gee,
you think?... Looks like he's moody too."
Chaos (6:44:06 PM):"We
just want you to leave quietly, if you can." Dawn plugs her duel claws
into the console. Firebird and Cyber Harpy Lady appear outside the ship.
Chaos (6:44:29 PM):"Granted,
life is never that easy for us."
Rekk (6:44:33 PM):Silence....
Rekk (6:44:53 PM):"Are
you the ones who felled my two brothers?"
Chaos (6:44:58 PM):Burnie
is still enjoying the music, he's so helpful.
Chaos (6:45:17 PM):"Not
I, how about you Casey, you kill either of them?"
Kitsune (6:45:40 PM):Casey
cringed, and mimicked Dawn, plugging his duel disk next to Dawn's, readying
a pair of cards. "Didn't get a glimpse of them at all..."
Chaos (6:46:10 PM):"Yeah,
I was out cold for Zaborg's death."
Rekk (6:46:45 PM):Another
molten rocks wings the ship.
Rekk (6:46:52 PM):"Then
Chaos (6:47:42 PM):Dawn
pulls the ship to the side, the tiniest hit on the ships left wing. "Right,
hard way, Harpy Lady go for him!"
Kitsune (6:47:43 PM):Casey
placed a card on his disk and a firery dragon a peared near the ship, heating
the air around it...
Chaos (6:48:28 PM):The
armor-wearing birdlady flies right at firey monarch, as Dawn goes to grab
another card from her deck.
Rekk (6:48:55 PM):An
armored firey hand wraps around the birdlady's NECK.
Rekk (6:49:15 PM):"I
said....WHO KILLED THEM?!" He sets the harpy aflame and flings her
back at the ship.
Kitsune (6:49:16 PM):The
dragon snaked around, and followed the bird lady, giving a screech. It
reached and bit at the firery hand.
Chaos (6:49:56 PM):Cyber
Harpy Lady flies toward the ship, but is intercepted by Firebird. At this
time Sacred Crane appears. "How the hell should we know, we weren't there."
Chaos (6:50:53 PM):Dawn,
probably to Casey's horror, is steering with her feet as her hands fumble
through her deck.
Kitsune (6:50:55 PM):Casey
looked at Dawn. "He's only going to get angrier..." A cloaked being apreared
next, holding a scythe, standing in front of the ship's nose.
Rekk (6:51:23 PM):The
monarch sucker punches the dragon away.
Chaos (6:51:25 PM):"We're
not here to be diplomats."
Rekk (6:51:34 PM):"Well
listen to this, then!"
Chaos (6:51:36 PM):Sacred
Crane also flies right at the firey lord.
Rekk (6:51:47 PM):"I
cannot leave this world except through my own death!"
Rekk (6:52:04 PM):"And
I will not leave until I gain JUSTICE for my fallen brothers!"
Kitsune (6:52:17 PM):Casey
eyed Dawn's feet, and grabbed the controls with the hand that had his duel
disk on. "Careful!"
Rekk (6:53:00 PM):A
small stream of liquid hot mag-ma shoots from below Thestalos and
roasts the Sacred Crane.
Kitsune (6:53:28 PM):The
dragon flew back, and grabbed at the bird, pulling it away.
Chaos (6:53:53 PM):Sacred
Crane wheels back as it is hit, a firy spirit of Fushi no Tori appears
and flies from the cockpit. Firebird catches the burnt corpse of Sacred
Chaos (6:54:53 PM):Fushi
no Tori flies into Thestalos' face.
Chaos (6:56:06 PM):"Casey,
no time for tact, rush the thing."
Kitsune (6:56:19 PM):Spirit
Reaper followed the bird, scythe held high in the air. Casey placed another
card, and a small girl apeared, following the group.
Chaos (6:56:42 PM):"Dude,
this is so totally awesome, dogfighting in a fire filled cave. DUDE!" Burnie
is enjoying himself.
Kitsune (6:56:47 PM):"Easier
said than done! Can't that AI of ours steer this darn thing?"
Rekk (6:56:50 PM):He
grabs Fushi no Tori by the neck, twists it up in a ball and throws it back
at the ship.
Chaos (6:57:20 PM):Firebird
collects the spirit of Fushi No Tori as it shields the ship. Firebird has
grown VERY big.
Rekk (6:57:50 PM):"I'M
TIRED OF THESE GAMES!" The Monarch bellows.
Kitsune (6:57:59 PM):Casey
cringed. The monarch was crippling everything that was headed its way...
Rekk (6:58:14 PM):"Tell
me who killed my brothers or DIE WHERE YOU STAND!"
Chaos (6:59:16 PM):Dawn
grins, "We're all sitting."
Kitsune (6:59:47 PM):"Not
Kitsune (6:59:50 PM):Casey
cringed, and pulled out a card, putting it down right on the spot. "Brother...
give me strength..."
Rekk (6:59:58 PM):Cockpit
Rekk (7:00:21 PM):Thestalos
is now about...2 inches from the ship.
Chaos (7:00:32 PM):"We're
in good shape." Several rockets fly out at the monarch, and the VERY VERY
BIG Firebird flies in at Thestalos as well.
Kitsune (7:00:44 PM):Right
out of the walls of the cave, a gigantic arm of lava punched out, and wrapped
its fingers aroudn the monarch, trying to hold it still.
Kitsune (7:02:02 PM):A
molten face came out of the wall, staring straight at the monarch, the
Lava Golem coming out...
Rekk (7:02:43 PM):He
inceinerates the rockets before they can reach him....but the gigantic
arm catches him by surprise.
Rekk (7:02:55 PM):"What....WHAT
IS THIS!?" He bellows, struggling as he does.
Chaos (7:03:18 PM):Dawn
pulls up on the controls flying way from the monarch.
Kitsune (7:03:42 PM):Lava
Golem's mouth opened wide, a fireball forming, and spat out a stream of
lava right at the monarch, bellowing in its attack.
Chaos (7:03:47 PM):"Lava
Golem?" Dawn asks.
Chaos (7:04:01 PM):Firebird
is clawing at Thestalos's face.
Kitsune (7:04:09 PM):Casey
gave a nod. "Yes... Brother's strongest monster..."
Chaos (7:04:28 PM):Firebird
looks like it could take out Jinzo right now.
Rekk (7:05:23 PM):Thestalos
holds his arms up in defense.
Chaos (7:06:21 PM):"Think
we need more firepower, and I got one more bit of it here," Dawn asks.
Rekk (7:06:43 PM):"You...."
He rears back a fist and punches at the Firebird...only for his fist to
shatter as he does.
Chaos (7:06:55 PM):"Nevermind."
Chaos (7:07:08 PM):"Dude,
did you see his hand, that rocked!" Burnie should shut up.
Kitsune (7:07:24 PM):The
Golem fully came out of the walls, its gigantic form radiating extreme
heat. A cage hanging out, opening as the Golem pulled the Monarch back
into it, not caring if he was healed or wounded.
Kitsune (7:07:35 PM):Casey
gave a low whistle. "Burned..."
Rekk (7:07:45 PM):He
then notices the fireball. "No...I shall NOT die here!" He rears back his
other fist...it meets the same fate as his first.
Rekk (7:08:30 PM):He
is then placed into the golem's cage.
Kitsune (7:08:57 PM):"None
of us want to die... That's why we have to do this..."
Chaos (7:09:12 PM):"Firebird
absorbed its brethren that he killed, his chances against us is as good
as the world spinning the other way around."
Chaos (7:09:51 PM):Dawn
grins, "So this is over!"
Rekk (7:09:54 PM):He
begins sturggling once more....but stops.
Rekk (7:10:01 PM):"...Granmarg....my
Kitsune (7:10:21 PM):The
golem looked down at the monarch with empty eyes... and started to curl
aroudn the cage, its magma body crushing, melting the cage...
Chaos (7:10:30 PM):"So
Amado, Sammi, and Lily did their job," Dawn looks down, "We better do ours."
Kitsune (7:10:47 PM):Casey
gave a nod.
Kitsune (7:10:52 PM):"Good..."
Chaos (7:11:03 PM):"Firebird!"
Chaos (7:11:25 PM):"Help
the Golem if you can!"
Chaos (7:12:08 PM):Slips
a card in her dual disk, Firebird closes its wings over Golem, adding to
the damage done.
Kitsune (7:13:33 PM):The
golem didn't stop the bird, its body melting through the bars of the cage,
dripping onto the monarch...
Rekk (7:14:17 PM):The
monarch is injured by these attacks...but is doing nothing to stop them
Rekk (7:15:12 PM):Someone
may wish to note that the volcano is rumbling very ominously right now.
Kitsune (7:15:16 PM):Casey
looked toward the monarch a moment, sharing its pain... "Gomen, Thesthalos...
Rest in peace... Join your brothers."
Kitsune (7:15:33 PM):He
then blinked, his eyes wide. "Dawn... We need get out of here."
Kitsune (7:15:40 PM):"NOW!"
Chaos (7:15:45 PM):
rumbles. "Right, on it."
Chaos (7:16:23 PM):Dawn
flies the jet upside-down toward the mouth of the volcano. Burnie still
overly happy with his music and headbanging.
Kitsune (7:17:03 PM):"Quick...
Before one of two things happens."
Kitsune (7:17:25 PM):"The
volcano going off... Or this ship disapearing with the shadow game!"
Rekk (7:17:52 PM):Since
the volcano erupting would royally bone everything on Academy Island...
molten rock begins shooting up towards the ship, their monsters, and the
monarch himself at blinding speeds.
Kitsune (7:18:53 PM):Casey
Chaos (7:19:28 PM):"Right,"
she starts on the evasive action now. "Burnie, off with the music and take
Chaos (7:19:50 PM):Burnie
is holding his head, "No can do babe, gotta keep this ship solid."
Kitsune (7:20:52 PM):The
Lava Golem didn't seem to care, much less mind the fire... The Spirit Reaper
though, seemed to try to intercept the fire, beign blown apart, but returning
back to its original form again and again...
Chaos (7:21:48 PM):Firebird
isn't faring so well from the rocks, batting some off with its wings, but
being hit too much to stay there for long.
Kitsune (7:22:44 PM):The
Raging Flame sprite though, seemed overjoyed with the fire, and started
to dance around the projectiles, growing and growing with the heat.
Rekk (7:23:00 PM):One
of the molten rocks tears a hole through the bottom of the cage, eventually.
Thestalos is pummeled so much, he falls out of the cage, and drops into
the magma below.
Rekk (7:23:30 PM):I
apologize my brothers....I could not gain justice for any of you. The
monarch falls to his own death.
Kitsune (7:25:36 PM):The
golem eyed the cage opening, then back at the monarch. Its duty done...
It fell apart, back to inert magma, joining the flames below...
Chaos (7:26:06 PM):Firebird
did its best to block for the ship as it escaped, keeping its form as a
few more rocks pummeled it.
Chaos (7:26:30 PM):Firebird
dispersed into a flamecloud after that.
Kitsune (7:26:42 PM):Casey
cringed, and held on tightly onto his seat. "How far yet?!?!?"
Chaos (7:27:37 PM):"Not
too far," Dawn answered, looking at the monitor, "but maybe some well placed
rocket attacks will keep the rocks at bay."
Chaos (7:28:18 PM):The
missle bays on the left and right wing vanish, "Or not."
Kitsune (7:28:29 PM):"...
Chaos (7:29:39 PM):Burnie
is too busy focusing on the ship's stability to say something stupid here.
Chaos (7:30:10 PM):Dawn
cringes, "Right, I have a plan Casey."
Kitsune (7:30:31 PM):Casey
blinked, and gave a nod. "Whatcha got in mind? I'm all ears."
Chaos (7:30:58 PM):"You
don't want to hear it," Dawn grins, and turns back to the front, "Five
seconds from escape!"
Chaos (7:31:05 PM):"Four...
Kitsune (7:31:13 PM):"WHAT???"
Chaos (7:31:54 PM):"Two...
One... NOW!" Dawn turns to fly right down the mountain and pops the cockpit!
Chaos (7:32:26 PM):She
then unhooks the duel disks and grabs Casey by the collar. "Time to leave."
Kitsune (7:33:16 PM):"W-w-WHAT!"
He let go off his seat, and got up. "NOW??? Are you CRAZY!?"
Chaos (7:33:55 PM):"Yes
and..." she stops to think, "YES!" She leaps out of the ship, Casey's collar
in her grip.
Kitsune (7:34:23 PM):Casey
didn't have time to respond to that, and followed her out, jumping. "WOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!!!"
Chaos (7:35:26 PM):She
grinned, "Having fun?" The small interceptor ship crashing into the side
of the volcano
Kitsune (7:36:54 PM):Casey's
eye twitched. "If I wasn't going to crash into the ground, I'd say... Yeah..."
Chaos (7:37:32 PM):"Just
don't lock your legs, or you can roll into your landing," Dawn grins again.
"Else it might hurt."
Kitsune (7:39:36 PM):He
eyed the ship, then the suroundings for their landing spot. He shivered
a bit. "Right... If I lose any body parts in this..." He didn't have time
to finish his sentence as he set up for the ground, comig quick.
Chaos (7:40:57 PM):Dawn
grinned as she crouched into a skid on the mountainside on her feet, "This
Kitsune (7:43:23 PM):Casey
coudln't help but smirk, even through his whole body shook in terror, trying
to imitate Dawn. "WOOOOOOO HOOOOO!!!" He cringed a bit as he felt his soles
grind against the rocks.
Chaos (7:44:53 PM):Dawn
finally skids to a stop, and looks for Casey. "See, that was fun."
Kitsune (7:46:13 PM):Casey
crouched lower, his gloved hand grasping the ground to stop. "Whooh..."
He gave a sigh, then grinned. "Yeah.. insane, but..."
Chaos (7:47:06 PM):"Well,
we didn't have the time or place to land the Burning Core."
Kitsune (7:47:06 PM):He
shook his head. "You were right, I REALLY didn't wanna know." He smirked.
"This is when I should ask 'Can we do it again?'"
Chaos (7:48:38 PM):"Rather
not, let's go check on the others now."
Kitsune (7:49:38 PM):He
gave a sigh. "Right... Long walk back though. Too bad I don't have my bike..."
He shook his head. "At least now the shadow game should be over."
Chaos (7:50:56 PM):"Yeah,
I'll race you there!" Dawn demon leaps down the mountain.
Rekk (7:51:02 PM):MEANWHILZ.
Kitsune (7:51:36 PM):"HEY!
Dammit, no fair!" He started to run down after her as fast as he could.
Rekk (7:52:11 PM):Amado
is with Lily, at her house, her having just pwnd him for the 4th time,
this time by deckout.
Rekk (7:52:31 PM):"BLARGH!"
Amado smashes his head into the ground. "How do you DO that?!"
Chaos (7:52:49 PM):Dawn
has vanished in a swirl of leaves as she goes down the mountain.
(7:52:56 PM): "Uh-uhm...
I just... do?" Sweatdrop.
Rekk (7:53:46 PM):Amado
grumbles something angrily and shuffles his cards back together.
Chaos (7:54:35 PM):Sammi
sits down, with a soda, and som asprin. "I-I'm sorry I f-fainted..."
Rekk (7:55:16 PM):Amado
waves a hand dismissively. "It's okay...some crazy stuff went down while
we were there anyway."
(7:55:25 PM): "It's
all right, Sammi-chan. Perfectly understandable, given the circumstance..."
Mutter. "Alastor gives me a migraine, too."
Rekk (7:55:44 PM):Alastor
Chaos (7:56:06 PM):Sudden
gust of air from nearest window to Amado, Lily, and Sammi.
Rekk (7:56:07 PM):"Kay...so
you have that Eon guy. So?"
Chaos (7:56:19 PM):A
leaf lands on Amado's nose.
(7:56:47 PM): Lily
jumps up at the breeze. "Ah!" What now...? Seems all the sudden
appearances has her a little jumpy.
Rekk (7:56:48 PM):"Yeah,
you gotta how someone so stupid can even be considere e-...vil?" He plucks
the leaf off.
(7:57:18 PM): "Well,
he had a very specific dart that caused him to be out cold. I surmise Meso
did it. Was it by your order?"
Chaos (7:57:27 PM):Dawn
is now sitting behind Lily, "Yo. Casey should be along soon."
Rekk (7:57:42 PM):"...."
Rekk (7:57:53 PM):"How
the crap do you do that?"
Chaos (7:58:05 PM):"What,
show up or find you? I can tell you how I found you."
Rekk (7:58:06 PM):"Nothing
Meso does is by my order."
(7:58:06 PM): "..."
Sigh of relief. "So that was the last of the monarchs, then..."
Rekk (7:58:30 PM):"I
ordered him to use the lethal ones."
Rekk (7:58:49 PM):"But
does he listen? Noooooo! Bah. Stupid MacGuyver ripoff."
(7:59:05 PM): "Ahh.
Well tell him not to shoot anyone else, lethal or not. If I have to put
up with another snot-nosed goody-twoshoes brat in here, I am going to be
quite angry.Oh, and there is one more thing that may interest you."
Chaos (7:59:09 PM):Dawn
holds up her pinky finger, "Lily and I are connected by a string of fate.
So it was easy to find you."
Rekk (7:59:17 PM):"..."
Rekk (7:59:30 PM):He
looks at Lily. "Lily-chan, why don't we have a string of fate!?"
(7:59:42 PM): "..."
Face-crack. S-string of fate...!?
Chaos (7:59:44 PM):By
and by, Sammi is hiding behind a sofa from Dawn. Dawn has yet to notice.
(8:00:31 PM): "Ah...
well... I... Perhaps we should get in touch with the others now that the
monarchs are gone?"
Rekk (8:00:53 PM):"Oh
fine, I'll tell him....what else is there?"
Chaos (8:01:07 PM):"Yeah,
Jenna has my duel spirits."
(8:02:17 PM): "Mm,
right... I'll get in touch with her first... we got cut off last time thanks
to that idiot Alastor..." Lily began putting in Jenna's number, then hit
(8:02:27 PM): "Well,
the person who brought him in was the imbicile on the horse-man with wings.
He saidsomething about 'Bee,' and 'Taking care of the gym.' If that means
anything to you, you may want to go ahead and do something about it."
Kitsune (8:03:17 PM):There
was a knock at the door where Lily and company was. It opened a bit, Casey's
voice speaking. "Can I come in?"
(8:03:39 PM): PDA
still ringing, Lily waved for Casey to enter.
Chaos (8:03:46 PM):Sammi,
quick as lightning, is hiding behind Casey now, from Dawn.
Rekk (8:03:57 PM):".....Zaniah-san.
If it weren't against school rules, and I weren't a bit afraid that you're
the cryptkeeper in disguise, I'd make sweet passionate love to you."
answered the PDA. "Hey! Lily-chan?"
Kitsune (8:04:11 PM):Casey
blinked, and came in, one hand over Sammi's. "There there..."
(8:04:56 PM): "Hello,
Jenna. Apologies for the last call... how are things holding up on your
Chaos (8:05:36 PM):Dawn
looks up, "Oh, she's here too. Hey there Casey, took ya long enough."
(8:05:44 PM): "..."
She seems at a loss for words for a moment. "Well. At any rate. I shall
keep the patient out of your way as long as I can without killing him.
Have fun with your extracurricular activities, Alastor."
right at the moment... No more ambushes so far.. Eon-kun's out, though."
Rekk (8:06:01 PM):"...You
just noticed her? Are you half-blind or something?"
Rekk (8:06:22 PM):Alastor
just grins and hangs up.
Kitsune (8:06:26 PM):Casey
gave a snort. "You and your disappearing acts. Gonna have to teach me that
(8:06:55 PM): Zaniah
clicks her PDA off as well, and cooly returns to her work, setting up what
appears to be a morphine drip... with the remaining contents of the dart
mixed in to it. >_>
(8:07:09 PM): "Ahh..."
Lily thought about this for a moment, and considered it to be not all that
good. "Where is he now?"
Chaos (8:07:33 PM):"You
wouldn't notice her either if she hides from you at your entry," Dawn answers.
Chaos (8:07:49 PM):Sammi
is still hiding behind Casey.
the nurse's office. He got poisoned.. but it's just some knockout thing
Rekk (8:08:13 PM):"Maybe
she wouldn't hide if you weren't known for...y'know, maiming people
in our dorm."
Kitsune (8:08:18 PM):Casey
turned back toward Sammi, and hugged her. "Don't worry..."
Chaos (8:09:15 PM):"You
stop pummeling Reds, I'll stop maiming Blues," Dawn retorts.
Chaos (8:09:54 PM):Sammi
would probably have fainted, except she recently did thanks to Alastor's
(8:10:41 PM): "Hmm...
I don't know if I like that idea at all... And where are Lola and the others?"
Kitsune (8:11:10 PM):Casey
looked back toward Amado. "How did the rest of you do? Is it over?"
Rekk (8:11:22 PM):Amado
Rekk (8:11:32 PM):"What
if the Reds get mouthy to me?"
with me. We're still in the forest, but near the dorms... Henry said he
had an idea to deal with Bee, so.. Waiting for him to come back."
(8:13:18 PM): Lily
sighed. "All right... just try to keep yourselves safe. This group seems
to be able to appear anywhere, so keep on your guard... let us know when
you find a place."
Chaos (8:14:16 PM):"What
if the Blues get all egotistical and self important on me?"
Rekk (8:14:45 PM):"...Okay.
Can I beat up Kaito at least?"
Kitsune (8:14:47 PM):Casey
snerked. "Don't they always?"
(8:15:07 PM): "Thank
you..." Lily turned back to the group. "Is there anything else Jenna should
know about before I hang up?"
Kitsune (8:16:34 PM):Casey
shook his head. "The fire monarch's been taken care of..."
Rekk (8:17:16 PM):He
turns to Lily. "No, don't think so."
(8:17:20 PM): Lily
tched. "Oh, right..." She turned back to the PDA. "The fire and earth monarchs
have been taken care of... I'm assuming for the moment that the water one
was dealt with as well."
(8:17:27 PM): Henry
stood outside the door to the gym.... "Ok... This is gonna be tougher than
see.. Okay, then!"
(8:18:37 PM): "Right.
So now it's even more important to keep those last two protected... Or
at least Lola."
Chaos (8:19:27 PM):Dawn
sighs, "Why not?"
Kitsune (8:19:55 PM):Casey
tilted hsi head. "Why so? Isn't it over? No more shadow game?"
(8:20:03 PM): "Hmmm....
Connect two trap holes?... No, no. Bad idea."
Lily-chan.. We'll be careful!"
(8:20:57 PM): "Right.
Godspeed." Click off, then looking back at Casey. "Because, despite the
disappearance of Granmarg, Alastor's Horus is still going full swing."
Kitsune (8:21:23 PM):Casey
her conversation with Lily was over, Jenna dialed up Henry.
(8:21:54 PM): Henry's
PDA rang. "Oh crap...." he answered it. "Hello?"
(8:22:05 PM): "Indeed...
so that leaves me to think that there's something else holding them up...
which means we still need to take care of the last two gods..."
Henry! I was just talking to Lily-chan.. The fire and earth monarchs are
Kitsune (8:22:32 PM):"...
And get rid of Alastor..."
Rekk (8:23:02 PM):"Oh
yeah, that's gonna be really hard."
(8:23:11 PM): Lily
opened up the dialing window again, this time putting in Ed's number. "Or
at least whatever gives him that power... it certainly can't be him alone."
Chaos (8:23:20 PM):"The
gods themselves," Sammi answered, peaking out from behind Casey.
Kitsune (8:24:18 PM):Casey
shook his head. "Even if we take care of his power, he can always come
back... stronger... worse than ever..."
(8:24:29 PM): Ed
answers his PDA. "...Yeah?" he asks, his voice hoarse, as though he's been
(8:24:41 PM): "Terrific!
I'm still working on making an entrance for Bee."
(8:24:47 PM): Lily
notices. "... Ed? What's wrong?"
(8:25:01 PM): "M..m...mobius...
he... Nothing. Anyways... What's up?"
Henry, did you leave Eon-kun in the nurse's office? Has she been able to
(8:25:56 PM): "Yeah,
I left him there, and she's workin' on it. No word on him yet, though."
(8:25:59 PM): "...
I was calling to ask about Mobius... how did you guys make out?"
(8:26:42 PM): "He...he...
he's gone...but... I didn't... I've never... He was so... I'm sorry...
but I don'tever want to have to do that again."
Chaos (8:27:08 PM):Dawn
perked her ears, "Blue, why do you say the gods are doing it? How would
Chaos (8:27:29 PM):Sammi,
returning to hiding behind Casey, "I-I-I-I... I don't know..."
Kitsune (8:27:29 PM):Casey
blinked at Sammi, tilting his head. "Sammi?..."
I don't feel comfortable with him there.. Well.. Ah! I think I have an
idea for Bee! Come meet me by the forest, 'kay?"
(8:28:01 PM): Lily
paused, taking in Ed's reaction... It seemed that the death of the monarch
had hurt him pretty badly. "I can't promise that you won't have to, but
I'm sorry for what's happened."
(8:28:25 PM): "...You
guys succeeded too, I take it?" he asks shakily.
(8:28:33 PM): "OH!
Hold on a sec, Jenna! I think I just figured something out myself!"
(8:29:03 PM): She
nods. "We did... it wasn't pretty." Pause. "Feel up for another tête-à-tête,
(8:29:15 PM): Henry
stopped shuffling through his deck, pulling out a card. "Okay, I'm on my
(8:29:26 PM): "...Another
(8:30:25 PM): "Head-to-head.
Despite the loss of the monarchs, Alastor still seems to be going strong."
Chaos (8:30:28 PM):Dawn
leaps over to Sammi and Casey, "You know, just not now."
Rekk (8:30:46 PM):"...Y'know...he
might've just been able to do that because the fire monarch wasn't dead
Kitsune (8:31:14 PM):Casey
stared at Dawn, and stepped between her and Sammi. "Dawn..."
(8:31:18 PM): Lily
turned back. "Maybe, but our monsters disappeared before that."
Chaos (8:31:21 PM):Dawn
grabs Sammi by the collar and slams her to a wall. "Now what will it take
to wake up the answer?"
(8:31:24 PM): "...Sure.
With Dori-chan back to her usual astral self, I've got nothing better to
Rekk (8:32:35 PM):"!"
Amado notices this. He shoots his glance over to Dawn. "Spellman. Let her
Kitsune (8:32:36 PM):Casey
growled, and grabbed Dawn by her collar, and pulled her back. "Back OFF,
(8:32:54 PM): Lily
tried to think of some consolation, only knowing bits and pieces of his
situation with Doriado. "... It might be good research... Alastor clearly
isn't doing this on his own, so..."
Chaos (8:33:04 PM):Dawn
looks over at them, Sammi about to cry, "We need the answer and she knows,
we just need the right her."
(8:33:23 PM): "I
said I was going already. I don't need to be convinced, Lily-san. Where
are you guys now?"
Chaos (8:33:32 PM):"Put
me down you pathetic tiny psychobitch," Yeah, that was SAMMI talking.
(8:33:39 PM): "...
Right... my place. See you when we see you." Click off.
Rekk (8:33:45 PM):"So
you'll just force her out, no matter how badly it messes her up? Yeah THAT'S
a good pl-..."
Rekk (8:34:11 PM):He
sighs and rolls his eyes. "Too late."
Chaos (8:34:17 PM):Dawn
keeps her up, "I'll do that after you answer, no threat and you're useless."
(8:34:19 PM): Ed
hangs up his PDA,takes a look over at his bed, where Dori is currently
napping again,and heads out the door. "...Stupid cosmic imbalances."
Chaos (8:34:39 PM):Sammi
slaps Dawn, "What makes you sure?"
Rekk (8:34:57 PM):"....."
was almost to the forest. he could see what looked like Jenna of in the
distance. Henry pulls out his PDA and calls Jenna.
Chaos (8:35:32 PM):
wouldn't speak up for no reason, yet she didn't know why," Dawn doesn't
flinch from the slap, "Talk."
Rekk (8:35:50 PM):And
Ed walks...right into Jou. "O-oh! Sorry about that Ed-Sempai!" Jou bows
his head apologetically.
Kitsune (8:35:57 PM):Casey
pulled out a hunting knife, and placed it at Dawn's side. "You let her
Chaos (8:36:17 PM):"Grr..."
Sammi just growls for a moment, "Back off Casey. She's right."
Rekk (8:36:23 PM):"...."
Amado glances over at Lily. "Should we....do something?"
(8:36:42 PM): Ed
shakes his head,waving a hand dismissively. "Ahh--Jou. Don't worry about
it. I'mheading over to Lily's to plan strategy... you feel like coming
Kitsune (8:36:52 PM):Casey
looked at Sammi, gave a growl, and pulled back, knife still at hand, not
liking this one bit.
(8:36:52 PM): "No,
we shouldn't. Dawn has the right idea here... keeping the girl riled is
the best way to get what we can use... Sammi herself would want this."
Rekk (8:37:17 PM):Amado
blinks. He hadn't expected that. "Huh. You sure?"
Chaos (8:37:29 PM):"The
Gods are infinitly stronger than the Monarchs, they don't need the help
to bring themselves out. Horus has the same strength now as he would with
a hundred monarchs out here."
Chaos (8:37:46 PM):"I
can feel it just standing near one of 'em."
(8:38:10 PM): She
nods. "It's hard for the normal Sammi to speak... it must be frustrating
at times. I'm sure she would want to help in this way, at the very least."
Kitsune (8:38:18 PM):Casey
Rekk (8:38:27 PM):"Alright..."
Chaos (8:39:09 PM):Dawn
smiles, "There we go, was that so hard?"
(8:39:48 PM): "So
if she's saying that it's Horus... why is it letting someone like Alastor
order it around?"
Chaos (8:40:00 PM):Sammi
growls, "Put me down now Harpy, before I rip your hair out strand by strand."
Chaos (8:40:37 PM):Dawn
grins, "Don't need you to talk anymore, hide behind that boytoy of yours.
But you'd have more fun in front of him." She puts Sammi down, who faints
as she slides down the wall.
Rekk (8:40:48 PM):"A-ah...Sure.
If it's okay with you..."
(8:41:28 PM): "Of
course it's okay with me..." Ed says quietly, hands in his pockets as he
walks towards the Sakuma residence. "...So... uhh... ever figure out that
Chaos (8:41:41 PM):Dawn
walks away, "Had to be done, not saying sorry." This line was meant for
Casey, even if Dawn isn't facing him.
Rekk (8:41:42 PM):"...."
What does Lily see in her again? >>;
Rekk (8:41:59 PM):"A-ah...not
Kitsune (8:42:16 PM):Casey
caught Sammi in his arms quickly, slowly laying her onto the floor...
Rekk (8:42:20 PM):"I
Kitsune (8:42:38 PM):He
looked back at Dawn, and growled...
Chaos (8:42:38 PM):"Why
bother summoning the monarchs when they don't need them?"
(8:42:48 PM): "...You
too? He was... noble. Really truly noble."
(8:43:08 PM): "A
test drive, perhaps..?" Lily motions Casey to lay Sammi on the couch instead,
where it should be more comfortable.
Rekk (8:43:30 PM):"Insurance,
maybe...?" Amado rubs his chin. This is a pretty big puzzler to him.
Kitsune (8:43:39 PM):Casey
gave a nod, and caried Sammi onto the couch, a pillow under her head.
Kitsune (8:44:07 PM):Casey
blinked. "Mass panic?..."
Rekk (8:45:43 PM):"H-he
really was...I wish we could've helped him somehow..."
answered the PDA "Henry?"
(8:46:38 PM): Sigh.
"It's so hard to analyze a situation that seems so random... It makes one
appreciate Terra Firma's plan boasting."
(8:46:44 PM): "...I'm
regretting it, really." Ed mutters cooly, looking up. "I thought... that
if the Monarchs were finished off, then maybe Dori-chan would stop being
so energy deprived. Apparently, the issue was bigger than that."
(8:46:53 PM): "Hey
Jenna, I'm coming up on you as we speak. I'll be there in just a sec!"
(8:46:57 PM): And..
Beep beep beep goes Jou's PDA! When Jou picked up to answer, it would be
a rather fatigued Rane. It may not have been more than a couple hours,
but he must have done a lot of cram studying to look the way he did. *yawn*...
(8:47:01 PM): "Jou?
Are you there?"
Chaos (8:47:10 PM):Dawn
just pirches on a chair, "So, create a panic, find the gods. Find the gods
while someone kills the monarchs."
Kitsune (8:47:23 PM):"A...
Rekk (8:47:31 PM):"Seems
Chaos (8:47:34 PM):"Even
iwthout monarchs, they have their Gods, which allow them to shadow game
dispite our lulled state of security."
(8:47:49 PM): In
about 15 seconds, Henry was in front of Jenna. "Okay, so what's your plan?"
Rekk (8:47:52 PM):
Jou pulls out his PDA. "Oh...Rane-Sempai! Hello!"
Kitsune (8:47:55 PM):"But
then why anounce that HE was the one making the shadow game, blow his cover?"
(8:47:57 PM): "Heh.
And just who feels secure? They're still running around."
Rekk (8:48:03 PM):"...Are
(8:48:40 PM): Ed
smirks. Oh yeah. Super-being ignored powers activate.
He took a moment, removing his glasses to rub an eye. "Oh.. Yes, I'm alright.
Don't worry. I was just studying is all. I have a couple of tests coming
Chaos (8:49:50 PM):"So
now they are two short of victory," Dawn ponders, "They know we have Bee."
Rekk (8:51:52 PM):"Oh...okay...."
Jou nods in understandment.
Rekk (8:52:14 PM):"Uh...so...Ed-Sempai
and I are heading over to Lily-sempai and Sakuma-sensei's house..."
Jenna put her PDA away. "Well.. My plan.. I was thinking about using a
magic card on Bee.. Shrink. That would make 'im smaller."
Kitsune (8:52:32 PM):Casey
sighed, and picked Sammi up in his arms. "I'm taking her to somewhere more
confortable... I'll contact you all later..."
(8:52:49 PM): "All
right... Sorry for all the trouble we've put you through."
(8:53:07 PM): "Heheh..."
Henry Held up the trap card Micro Ray. "Great minds think alike."
Chaos (8:53:09 PM):
wouldn't be your bed, would it?" Dawn teased.
Kitsune (8:53:20 PM):He
shook his head. "No problem... We all gota help for this..."
(8:53:44 PM): No,
comfortable would be mi-- Insert mental slap. Not the time!
(8:53:54 PM): Jenna
Kitsune (8:53:55 PM):Casey
snerked at dawn, then whispered to Lily. "Try to keep her on a leash next
(8:54:22 PM): Whispering
back. "I'm afraid I'm the one that prefers them... but I shall make the
Chaos (8:54:34 PM):"Next
time I jump outta a space fighter, I'm not draggin' him with me."
(8:55:00 PM): "Which
one should we use? Micro Ray will take away all of Bee's defense, and if
I'm not mistaken, Shrink'll take half of Bee's attack..."
Kitsune (8:55:08 PM):
snickered. "Right... Your bird was having enough trouble as it is...."
Rekk (8:55:08 PM):"Pfft.
Jealous of Sammi?"
Chaos (8:55:55 PM):Dawn
turned to Amado, "A little, she could murder you and nobody would believe
Kitsune (8:56:31 PM):Casey
started to walk out, not knowing where to drop Sammi, other than in his
room... making a mental note to sleep on the floor if she didn't wake up.
Kitsune (8:57:29 PM):He
turned to Dawn for a moment. "By the way, great job back there... A little
less close next time though."
Rekk (8:57:34 PM):"Yeah,
she actually has the capability of murdering me too."
(8:57:46 PM): "Whatever,
we can figure it out on the way. We need to get in while the nurse is distracted
with Eon. She's already suspicious..."
Chaos (8:58:05 PM):
giggles at the idea of a little girl normally looked at as weak murdering
Amado in cold blood.
The nurse overheard you talking about Bee?"
(8:58:26 PM): It
just isn't a day without talking about Amado being murdered...
Chaos (8:58:58 PM):"We
need to talk to a real expert on this stuff..." Dawn sighs, "Dammit...
so much for why I didn't leave during vacation."
(8:59:08 PM): "Well,
yeah... but she doesn't know what Bee is!"
maybe not.. Really, the nurse is a bitch and Al's her assitant."
(8:59:48 PM): Lily
shuffled, feeling guilt at this. "We could... still go... if there's enough
(9:00:09 PM): "Aw
we better not have Bee in the school.. I really want to move Eon out that
(9:00:41 PM): "Alright,
so then where should we take Bee?"
Rekk (9:00:43 PM):
quirks an eyebrow.
Rekk (9:01:00 PM):"'Scuse
me? Do you know an expert on this stuff or something, Spellman?"
Chaos (9:01:28 PM):Ignoring
Amado, Dawn turns to Lily, "Man... has that stalker girl sketched Alastor
and the rest of his crew?"
have no idea.. The forest won't do.. They already found us there.. They're
in the school.. And if they were bother Lily-chan and the others, they'd
be at one of the ole monarch places... Damn it."
(9:02:08 PM): "I'm
not sure... We know she has one of Li..."
(9:02:29 PM): Ed
takes this moment to knock. "Hey, we're here."
Chaos (9:02:33 PM):"Any
drawings of any detail of them should help his finding something for us
(9:02:39 PM): "Not
(9:02:55 PM): "Mmn,
too bad I don't have Jou's number..." Hearing the knock. "Come in!"
Rekk (9:03:09 PM):Jou
is standing behind Ed.
(9:03:20 PM): Ed
walks in, looking more than a little world-weary.
Chaos (9:03:25 PM):"Fortune
(9:03:43 PM): "Funny,
I was thinking more along the lines of 'speak of the devil.'"
Chaos (9:04:03 PM):"Stalker,
I need all your sketches of the bad guys."
Rekk (9:04:21 PM):Jou
walks in behind him.
Rekk (9:04:35 PM):"Buh?
Stalker?" Jou blinks at that.
(9:04:37 PM): Noting
a distressed Ed, Lily greets him, offering a seat. "You really didn't have
(9:06:20 PM): "No,
I do. Apparently the monarchs weren't the real cause of the problem. Even
worse, Dori-chan did her best to stay awake for most of the shadow game,
so she's feeling really drained now." he replies, while having a seat.
guess not.. Unless we can really keep Bee guarded in school.. Along with
shrimpface and his duel spirit.. But look at what happened in the forest.."
if the others are done with the monarchs.. Then there'd probably be more
around to help this time."
Rekk (9:07:44 PM):"Uh..uhm...are
you talking to me?" Jou blinks again,
(9:07:52 PM): "So
we've discovered... and I'm sorry. We're trying to gather clues now, so
we need Jou's sketchbook..."
(9:08:01 PM): "Looks
like we don't really have much choice..."
(9:09:41 PM): Ed
massages his temples,looking very strained. "Yeah... anything I've missed
that you haven't?Like plan information, or why bother with the Monarchs
Rekk (9:09:53 PM):"O-oh...my
sketchbook...Okay...." He holds the book up and hands it to Lily.
Chaos (9:09:57 PM):"Any
clues he can use in his research will help," Dawn looks REAL unhappy, "I'll
take this stuff to him soon."
Rekk (9:10:12 PM):"...Take
it to who?"
Chaos (9:10:41 PM):Dawn
just gives Lily that pleading look of not wanting to answer.
(9:11:09 PM): "...Him
is obviously Robocop-sensei. He only has a database on everything."
(9:11:14 PM): Ah,
right... "I believe she means her father, who is, from what I've heard,
an expert in this field..." Lily then hands the book over to Dawn, who
probably has much keener eyes.
So, what do you think is likely to get screwed up?"
(9:11:29 PM): "...Wait,
Chaos (9:11:47 PM):Dawn
nods, and looks over the sketches.
(9:12:11 PM): "I
dunno... something always does." Henry looked at Jenna. "But we always
seem to make it out, huh?"
(9:12:16 PM): "Takumi-sensei
can gather information... that much is true. But Dawn's father has been
in it for years..."
Rekk (9:12:35 PM):"...Why
haven't we asked him be-"
(9:12:42 PM): "In...
what?" Ed asks, raising an eyebrow.
(9:13:07 PM): "Research
of the game, I believe... I... haven't been keen to probe the subject."
Chaos (9:13:13 PM):"Egypt
and Duel Monsters Lore."
(9:13:53 PM): Ed
gives Dawn a 'You will give me more information, NOW' look, and says nothng.
Chaos (9:15:06 PM):Dawn's
eyes open wide at a sketch, "Fuck."
(9:15:23 PM): Blink.
"What is it?"
Rekk (9:15:32 PM):Amado
stops asking his question as he remembers Lily speaking to him about Dawn
having 'family troubles'.
Rekk (9:15:40 PM):"Hrm.
Chaos (9:16:48 PM):"I
need to talk to him, now I'm sure of it," Dawn says dully, "Lily, care
to join me in a small plane trip?"
guess.. We'll just have to go ahead and move him inside.."
Rekk (9:17:28 PM):AMado
blinks. "What? What's wrong?"
(9:17:37 PM): "...Right!
No use standing around here, then!"
(9:18:08 PM): "Ah,
not at all..." Although she did wonder why she'd need the company, but
then, it was Dawn's father...
Chaos (9:18:11 PM):Dawn
throws the Alastor sketch to Amado, "Right palm."
Rekk (9:18:12 PM):"A-aah....what's
wrong, Dawn-Sempai? Did I do something wrong with one of my drawings...?"
Jou asks sort-of shakily.
Rekk (9:18:28 PM):He
glances at the right palm. "Some...freaky glove..."
Chaos (9:19:12 PM):"Have
you seen any of the Battle City duels involving Isis or Malik?"
Rekk (9:19:31 PM):He
blinks as he sees something. "Whoa..."
Rekk (9:19:59 PM):"...Yeah.
Not to mention Yugi..."
(9:20:01 PM): Lily
thinks back. "I believe my father had showed me something along those lines..."
(9:20:23 PM): "...Yugi?"
Ed's head tilts over, and he's alert. "...What about Yugi?"
Rekk (9:20:26 PM):"They
all had items with that eye on them..."
Chaos (9:20:35 PM):"It
means that item is not some toy."
Rekk (9:21:08 PM):He
shows the sketch to Ed, showing a sketch of Alastor with a glove on his
right hand, open palm, the Eye of Horus on the center of the palm.
(9:21:58 PM): Ed
freaks out, and jumps out of his chair. "TH-TH-TH-TH-THAT THING IS DANGEROUS!"
he yells, pointing at it.
Rekk (9:22:07 PM):"How
so...? I thought Yugi and Isis were just acce- AH!"
Rekk (9:22:12 PM):"...Ed.
What's with you?"
Chaos (9:22:16 PM):"There
is one in my house too," Dawn says idly.
Rekk (9:22:44 PM):Jou
nearly jumps. "Ah...what's wrong with it?! I just thought it looked nice
so I drew it..."
(9:23:04 PM): "Really...?"
Lily looks at Dawn with some awe. Something like that... first on a boy,
then in one's house? Incredible how things got around.
(9:23:17 PM): "...Every
recorded time something with that eye on it has shown up, something bad's
happened, Amado. REAL bad! Like, 'I'm going to die now' bad! We do not
want this! This is BAD!"
Jenna took out her deck, searching through it until she pulled out her
Shrink card. "I hope this works, then.. Half-attack is better than no defense,
Chaos (9:24:44 PM):Dawn
frowned, "Lily, I have my reasons for asking you along. Please understand
it's for the best."
(9:24:54 PM): "We'll
go with shrink, then. C'mon!"
(9:25:28 PM): She
nods. "I know... All right."
(9:25:43 PM): "...I
think I don't wanna be involved anymore."
Chaos (9:26:02 PM):"I'm
also taking something my father probably will get mad at me for taking.
Ed will hate it more."
Rekk (9:26:06 PM):Amado
shakes his head. Too much to keep up with...
(9:26:26 PM): "I-i-if
it's all the same to you, Amado, I'm going to go back to my dorm and pretend
I never saw tha--" He heard his name. "You're taking what?"
Rekk (9:26:40 PM):He
looks over at Lily. "So....wait. You're going where?"
Chaos (9:27:13 PM):Dawn
turns to Ed, "I have a small gold ring, perfectly sized for my index finger.
It has that logo in a green gemstone."
(9:27:50 PM): Ed's
eye twitches. "D-d-d-d-do you know what it does?"
(9:28:04 PM): "We're
going to visit Dawn's father... find out some answers, possibly borrow
Rekk (9:28:36 PM):"I
see...and would this have anything to do with the 'family troubles' thing
you were talking about?"
Chaos (9:28:47 PM):Dawn
smiled, "Why I need you here Ed, he won't tell me so I need you to help
me figure it out."
Chaos (9:29:01 PM):Dawn's
eyes move toward Amado, "No."
Rekk (9:29:13 PM):"....Yeah.
I'm gonna have to come with."
(9:29:54 PM): "...I
don't wanna go." Ed says quietly. The idea of being on a plane with Dawn
is not a pleasant one.
Chaos (12:29:43 AM):"You're
not going Ed, nor are you Amado."
Rekk (12:30:14 AM):"And
why the hell not, Spellman?"
Chaos (12:30:17 AM):"I
have to go since its my house, and I need Lily along because I have to
use her as my reason that jerk needs to explain it all."
and relieved sigh.
Chaos (12:30:59 AM):"You
will trust the safety of the world in the hands of Kaito," Dawn challenges
Amado's stance of coming.
Rekk (12:31:25 AM):"Yeah,
and I have to go for the sake of protecting Lily."
we need you here."
Rekk (9:34:24 PM):"Kaito's
a moron, but he's stronger than Donovan, that's for sure."
(9:34:59 PM): "I'd
have to agree..." Trying very hard to get things smoothed back out... "I'd
feel a lot better knowing you were here, watching them."
(9:35:23 PM): "Amado.
That kid has some kind of glove. We can't be sure what it does. We need
every last good duelist we can get!"
Chaos (9:36:42 PM):"Amado,
even the weaker items like my father's and my aunt's could lay waste to
this island in a matter of days," she answers. "The item Malik carried
could lay waste to this place in a day."
Chaos (9:37:10 PM):"Yugi's
could do it in hours."
Rekk (9:38:28 PM):"..."
Rekk (9:38:36 PM):"I
thought they were just...accesorizing..."
(9:39:12 PM): "Am
I the type to be scared of by a mere accessory?" Pause. "Don't answer that."
Rekk (9:40:49 PM):Amado
opens his mouth, and then is told to not answer.
then. Spellman...explain to me. What makes these items so powerful?"
Chaos (12:41:18 AM):"Powerful
magics," she mutters. "I don't care if it sounds stupid, its true."
Rekk (12:42:33 AM):"...Hey.
Remember Bruce and his crazyass amulet?"
Rekk (12:42:46 AM):"I'm
ready to believe a lot of stuff now. So explain."
Chaos (12:43:23 AM):"My
father explained his gauntlets to me," Dawn answers, "They were a simple
construction tool. Used to help build pyramids or some such."
scribbles notes into his notebook. >_>
Chaos (9:44:24 PM):"Granted,
now he just uses them to vacume under furniture, and other stupid things."
Rekk (9:45:31 PM):Jou
scribbles notes as well.
(9:45:54 PM): Ed
looks over at Jou, scowls, and then scribbles faster.
Chaos (9:46:21 PM):"You
could pummel him with your bokuto for a week and he wouldn't notice."
(9:46:25 PM): Eyebrow
arch. Were they having a scribbling contest?
Rekk (9:47:01 PM):Jou
blinks....and scribbles faster without realizing it.
Rekk (9:47:12 PM):"...Sounds
like your dad." He glances at Lily.
(9:47:13 PM): Ed
scowls even more darkly, and goes faster.
Rekk (9:47:24 PM):"...If
I could get a bloody hit on him..."
Chaos (9:47:33 PM):"My
dad himself is pathetically weak, his soul is joined to Stone Soldier."
(9:47:45 PM): "Mmn..."
Lily takes a sip of a drink, not answering that comment.
Rekk (9:48:21 PM):"...Ah."
(9:48:57 PM): Blink.
That was a new piece of information...
Chaos (9:49:15 PM):"Break
a bokuto on his head he might turn around."
Rekk (9:50:20 PM):"...What
about a Sakabatou?"
Chaos (9:50:47 PM):"I've
seen a bullet bounce of his neck."
Rekk (9:50:55 PM):".
Rekk (9:51:00 PM):"Wow."
(9:51:23 PM): Suddenly,
Lily feels very anxious about this trip.
Chaos (9:52:10 PM):"To
the point again, I need to ask him a few things about two students at this
school, one of whom I can bring with me, the other I don't need to."
Rekk (9:52:39 PM):"...Huh?"
(9:53:02 PM): "Ara?"
Chaos (9:54:50 PM):"I've
got a theory to check out, that's all. I'm just doing it so I don't gotta
visit him again later."
(9:55:15 PM): "Ah..."
Rekk (9:55:46 PM):...Confused.
(9:56:03 PM): Scribbling.
Rekk (9:56:12 PM):Jou
glances at Ed's notes.
Rekk (9:56:19 PM):"Uh...Ed-Sempai...you
(9:57:01 PM): Ed's
eye twitches. "...You did not... just... ahhh, you're right..."
(9:57:14 PM): He
goes back and fixes it, looking mildly crushed.
Rekk (9:58:24 PM):Jou
just blinks...and goes back to his own notes.
(9:59:30 PM): He
returns to his conjecturing in the margins of the paper now, still seeming
incredibly sorrowful about something.
Rekk (9:59:39 PM):"Well...."
Rekk (9:59:42 PM):"How
Rekk (9:59:53 PM):"Instead
of you two heading off...we just take Donovan's item?"
(10:00:37 PM): Lily
just... shakes her head as the two go at it, at the same time wishing she
could comfort Ed on whatever it was that was bothering him...
Chaos (10:01:16 PM):"That
sounds like a bad plan."
(10:01:23 PM): I've
been bested at being a geek. It burns... ;-;
Rekk (10:01:48 PM):
Chaos (10:02:31 PM):"Hmm,
attempting to steal a weapon of great magical power from someone without
knowing what it does, hmm."
(10:04:06 PM): "And
that's if you can take it at this point..."
Rekk (10:04:14 PM):"Well
Rekk (10:04:23 PM):"If
it's even that powerful, why didn't he use it earlier?"
Chaos (10:04:37 PM):"We've
figured that out, he's an idiot."
Rekk (10:04:37 PM):"I
know he was wearing the thing..."
(10:07:25 PM): "...Hold
it. Think back. Have you ever seen him not wearing it?"
Rekk (10:07:40 PM):"Well,
I've only seen him once or twice..."
Rekk (10:07:54 PM):"But
I wasn't really paying attention except for earlier."
Rekk (10:08:07 PM):"Ah...actually....he
is usually wearing it..."
(10:08:46 PM): "Haah,
good. Let's thinkthen. Is there anything he does that seems uncanny for
a human undertheir own power? Like something nearly physically impossible?"
(10:10:27 PM): "I'd
say appearing in flashes of fire, but then there's Eon..."
Rekk (10:10:47 PM):"Not
to mention Li-sempai..." Dreamy look in the eyes.
(10:11:12 PM): "...Yes,
then we can discount that as a power."
(10:11:30 PM): Oi,
oi... ¬¬ No time to start getting dreamy.
Rekk (10:11:50 PM):
Chaos (10:12:55 PM):
might not know what powers the glove has."
Chaos (10:13:07 PM):"Which
doesn't help because then he just sucks at using these powers."
Rekk (10:13:24 PM):"Then...why
can't we just take it from him again?"
(10:13:24 PM): "Which
will make them easily defeatable."
Chaos (10:14:07 PM):"No...
that means that if we attack him he could accidentally use these powers
on us and kill us."
(10:14:32 PM): "That's
why AMADO is staying here with US."
(10:15:03 PM): "..."
No... what she thought at that moment wasn't good at all. "Right... we
need as many here as possible."
Rekk (10:15:43 PM):"Whatever...I
still think that he's no threat..."
Rekk (10:15:52 PM):"Li,
maybe...but not Donovan."
(10:16:00 PM): "Don't
judge a duelist by their jacket, Amado."
(10:16:06 PM): "And
they're working together, so..."
Rekk (10:16:31 PM):"...I
was judging from the fact that Li defeated Spellman, ya ass-hat." ¬¬
(10:16:56 PM): "Have
you ever seen Donovan duel? Didn't think so."
(10:17:07 PM): "...
has anybody seen him duel?"
Rekk (10:17:14 PM):"...I
Rekk (10:17:30 PM):"I
(10:17:51 PM): "Threat
of the unkown. Don't underestimate him."
Rekk (10:18:02 PM):"But
I've seen him play games like Shogi, and Naruto: Gekitou Taisen 4....which
(10:18:23 PM): Blink.
"When did you see this...?"
Rekk (10:18:55 PM):"Uh...lots
of times. At least once every couple of days..."
(10:19:09 PM): "Better
question: WHERE did you see this?"
Rekk (10:19:22 PM):"..Oh!
From Takumi-Sensei's cameras...?"
(10:19:40 PM): "...
is that a statement or a question?"
Chaos (10:20:00 PM):Dawn
shakes her head, "Why can't he share this insight when its useful..."
(10:20:23 PM): "Do
you know where the camerals were watching, by chance?"
Rekk (10:20:42 PM):"Uh
uh...Takumi-Sensei might know..."
(10:21:04 PM): "Right.
Well. My work is done here. I'm heading back to my dorm."
(10:21:20 PM): "All
right... I suppose Dawn and I have a flight to catch anyway."
Rekk (10:21:30 PM):"Ah...Ed-Sempai,
are you sure...?"
(10:21:48 PM): "Thank
you for your help, again..."
Chaos (10:22:10 PM):Dawn
taps at her PDA, "I got our tickets for tomorrow morning. We shouldn't
be there too long, so don't pack too much."
(10:22:16 PM): "Naturally.
Robocop-sensei gets a wide berth. And anytime, Lily. It's kind of... well...
I guess it's what I do."
Rekk (10:22:38 PM):"C'mon...I'm
sure if we tried, we could easily take that stupid glove of his..."
(10:23:00 PM): "It
is much appreciated."
(10:23:54 PM): "Amado-kun...
please allow us to get our information first? If it turns out to be easy
to do, we can probably go with your plan..."
Rekk (10:25:29 PM):He
sighs and mumbles. "Still don't see why I can't come..."
Rekk (10:25:33 PM):"Sure..."
Chaos (10:25:41 PM):Dawn
gives Lily a hug, and whispers in her ear, "I'm sorry you gotta meet him...
(10:26:17 PM): Ed
shudders, walking out of the room. "You guys have fun. I have experimenting
to do..." he says, already annotating his notes.
(10:27:13 PM): Mumbling
to Dawn. "I'd say that it won't kill me, but you know the irony of that."
Then, to an exiting Ed. "Hai! Later, Ed!"
(10:27:47 PM): Ed
turns around, waves... and then trips, falling backwards down the stairs
and out the door. "Eeegh.."
Rekk (10:31:00 PM):"Well...where
are you two headed anyway?"
Chaos (10:32:27 PM):"The
house in England."
Chaos (10:33:26 PM):"Shouldn't
be more than a few days."
Rekk (10:33:40 PM):"England...."
Chaos (10:33:44 PM):"One
or Two most likely."
Rekk (10:33:53 PM):"I
thought this academy only accepted Japanese students."
(10:34:41 PM): "Nn."
Lily shakes her head, knowing the academy's standards far too well. "Any
student can be accepted, provided they pass..."
Chaos (10:34:42 PM):"You'd
be amazed at the rules bent for someone who got a recomendation letter
from someone at the board of Industrial Illusions."
(10:35:05 PM): "...
or that." Sweatdrop.
Rekk (10:35:52 PM):"....."
Blink blink. "I2."
Rekk (10:36:03 PM):"You
get a reccomandating at someone from I2?!"
England?" A bit of a finger fidget. "Will your father be speaking in English...?"
Rekk (10:36:35 PM):Amado
looks like he's about to pounce Dawn. "WHO?! WHO!?"
Chaos (10:37:02 PM):"How
should I know? Dad set it up."
Chaos (10:37:16 PM):"He
and the witch made a phone call."
Rekk (10:38:41 PM):"Waah...a
reccomndation from bloody I2." Amado rests his head on ther ground.
(10:39:36 PM): Lily...
blinked. Even with the recommendation, the two were in the same school,
so... she didn't really see the difference.
Chaos (10:40:27 PM):"He
speaks a bunch of languages," Dawn mentions, turning to Lily. "So we should
(10:41:02 PM): "Oh
good... I haven't spoken English since we visited Granmother and Grandfather
MacLeod a couple of summers ago..."
Rekk (10:41:10 PM):"I
wouldn't worry. Language problems are usually moot in anime anyway." Brick'd.
(10:41:49 PM): Especially
when the players speak English in the first place... Mentally bricked.
Rekk (10:42:36 PM):And
how can we speak in the random bits of Japanese when we're already supposed
to be speaking Japanese anyway? Mental cinder block.
(10:43:18 PM): "...
my head suddenly hurts..." ><
Chaos (10:43:44 PM):You
two shut it, management is running low on bricks.
Rekk (10:43:47 PM):
(10:44:07 PM): H-hai,
Chaos (10:44:22 PM):"So,
Amado, you go home now, right?"
Rekk (10:45:33 PM):He
sighs "Do I have to?"
(10:46:05 PM): "Well,
or you might be able to find Jenna or Henry and keep an eye on our special
Chaos (10:46:22 PM):"Well,
considering two people in this place wouldn't mind murdering you in your
sleep." Dawn looks away.
(10:47:09 PM): "Two?"
Chaos (10:47:45 PM):"Well,
I'm not sure but I have that feeling the old man doesn't take kindly to
Rekk (10:47:53 PM):Jou
blinks as well. Two...?
(10:48:21 PM): "Ahh...
I figured he'd be sleeping in the school..." Downcast gaze. "He does that
Rekk (10:49:34 PM):He
blinks at that gaze.
Rekk (10:49:41 PM):"You
mean...he doesn't come back here?"
(10:50:16 PM): Scuff.
"Sometimes." She really, really, really doesn't want to go into
Chaos (10:51:49 PM):"Right,
Lily," Dawn looked down, "I've gotta go by the school and get two things
from Jenna... I'll be back later."
(10:52:48 PM): "All
right, good luck... Have her call if you need anything."
Chaos (10:54:25 PM):Small
gust of wind, some leaves blowing around. Dawn is no longer there.
Rekk (10:56:37 PM):Amado
gets up. "...Ah. Hey Lily...."
(10:56:48 PM): "Yes?"
Rekk (10:57:49 PM):"Maybe
if your dad's not gonna be here...I could...stay here tonight? Just...y'know,
to keep you company?"
(10:58:57 PM): "A-ah,
well..." Hinata-style finger fidget. "D-dawn's room mate has started having...
'relations' with another student, so... she's been staying here..."
Rekk (10:59:26 PM):"...Ah...okay."
Rekk (10:59:47 PM):Jou
is, if you can believe it, still taking notes.
(11:00:05 PM): "I'm
not sure if you'd really want stay here, considering the-- are you taking
Rekk (11:00:44 PM):Jou
blinks as he's knocked out of his note-writingess. "Ah....maybe?"
(11:02:03 PM): "Could
you... not? This is a private conversation..." Blink. "Perhaps you should
take your notes over to Takumi-sensei, perhaps see if you can identify
the room Alastor was in..."
(11:02:30 PM): And
Lily would be escorting him to the door anyway... quite the forceful little
hostess when she wished to be.
Rekk (11:03:02 PM):"...Ah.
Right. Sorry about that..." He bows his head to the both of them and heads
Chaos (11:03:54 PM):"Quack,"
small voice from outside the door.
Rekk (11:04:16 PM):"....?"
(11:04:42 PM): "...
quack?" Lily takes a look outside.
Chaos (11:05:08 PM):Wynn
(11:06:39 PM): "Wynn!"
Lily exclaims, going to hug the... well... now-spirited spirit. Which really
isn't a hug at all, but the motion is there.
Chaos (11:07:27 PM):Dawn
is now laying on the couch, some leaves in the room.
Rekk (11:07:38 PM):"...."
Rekk (11:07:46 PM):"HOW
DO YOU DO THAT?!"
Chaos (11:08:49 PM):"I
don't have to answer that."
Chaos (11:09:12 PM):Wynn
attempt to hug Lily, however it fails, and Wynn is a bit sad.
Rekk (11:09:35 PM):"....."
Amado just shakes his head.
Rekk (11:09:59 PM):---------------------------------------------------------------
