It is approximately half
an hour before the match scheduled for Ed and Lola to take place. Assuming
Ed has remained true to his jumpy nature, he and Mylene are most likely
in the arena area already, talking like rivals do.
Ed is, indeed, in thearena, and had been for
about half an hour. Towa had scared the pantsoff of him, after all. He's
watching Mylene go about her work with asmall amount of interest, and a
large amount of rival-itude.
"..." The girl looks back
at the other Osiris, annoyed that he's looking. "Do you have to
"Well, yeah. You're myrival. You could like,
sabatoge the arena to explode or something, andI can't take that chance!"
Ed yells, quite intently watching her everymove.
"That'd get me fired,
ya nimrod!" Mylene is shocked, offended, and currently throwing a screwdriver
at Ed's forehead.
Ed dodges by ducking, andthe screwdriver arcs
juuust right, smacking him right on top of thehead and knocking him forward
onto his face. "Gwuuuck!"
With a triumphant "hmph!"
the small blonde is back to work. Within seconds she dusts her hands off.
"Dooone!" she announces to whatever teachers/spectators might be present.
Rekk (6:58:43 PM):
"Uhuh....what is going
on here...?" Came the mumble of the ever fragrant Shishio Smith, one of
his eyebrows quirked upwards as he wandered on to the scene.
Kitsune (6:59:14 PM):
Doors flew open,
and finally, Lola came tumbling in, running, catching her breath. "Nyu,
nyu, nyyuuuu..." She looked around nervously for a moment, and finally
noticed the others in.
Rekk (6:59:16 PM):
"....Ah. Very nice, Ms....."
Seems he's not too good with names. Osiris names, at least.
Kitsune (6:59:17 PM):
"I... I'm not...
nyu... Late, am I?"
Ed is being unconcious on the floor. :D
Rekk (7:00:31 PM):
"...." He jabs the unconcious
student with his foot.
"Batolli!" Mylene replies
in a chipper voice. Beside Shishio is Towa
Sakuma, who waves to Lola. "Nope, y'r early. Good job."
Ed rolls over, a small lump forming where
the screwdriver is still somehow impaled in his head,
Rekk (7:01:43 PM):
"Ah....Ms. Misowa. Welcome."
Shishio says, his voice being distracted from the screwdriver'd student.
"Oh, I need that!" Mylene
exclaims, plucking the tool from Ed's forehead. "Thanks, rival."
"No... problem..." Ed mutters, too dizzy to
Kitsune (7:02:32 PM):
She gave a sigh
of releif. "Thank god... Nyu... I thought I'd be dead if I came in later...
PDA's clock reset on me." She sweatdropped. "Not good with all this electronic
"New geddup, kiddo, so
we can start this thing." If Ed doesn't want a loving foot-prod from the
bear, he'd better move it.
Ed immediately stands atattention, shaking
like a leaf "Y-y-y-yessir! I'll go sir!" He runsover to the arena, tripping
and falling once while stepping up onto it,before standing hastily again
and running over to his corner.
Kitsune (7:04:02 PM):
She blinked a little.
"Shouldn't I... Make sure my duel disk works?" She looked around, and saw
Ed get to his place, sweatdropping. "Guess not..."
Towa sighs, shaking his
head. "Good kid, but man izze shaky."
A tool? Not working. Mylene
is there. "Why, is it broken?" She pokes at the device.
Rekk (7:04:58 PM):
"Well he is in Osiris...."
Shishio mumbles back.
Kitsune (7:05:31 PM):
"I... Don't know, I haven't used it in a while. I've been... Busy." She
sweatdropped visibly. No need to explain what she was doing these past
few days, was there?
"Hmph. When 'e gets t'
yella I'm gonna give him MAN training." With that decided, the overly large
teacher plops himself into a chair.
Rekk (7:06:47 PM):
".....Indeed." The comparitvely
smaller teacher sits down.
"Well, let's see..." Mylene
looks over the disk, examining. "Everything looks like it's there. If you
haven't been using it, it should be fine. They don't just break on their
"... unless you have...
enemies?" She looked at Lola. "Naaaah."
Kitsune (7:07:47 PM):
again. "You never know... I don't think sooo." She shook her head. "Thanks
"Nooo problem!" She claps
the girl on the back. "Now fight! Win! Show that shrimp who's boss!"
"Are we... all good, Lola?" Ed asks quietly,
his own duel disc active. "Or... HEY, YOU! SHE'S NOT BEATING ME!"
Kitsune (7:08:40 PM):
"H-HAI!" She gulped
a bit, and headed to her side of the dueling arena.
Rekk (7:08:49 PM):
Ominous figure in blue
is suddenly behind Lola. "Hello all!" He says chipperly!
"She will so! You SUCK!"
Mylene turns around. "Eh?"
Kitsune (7:09:12 PM):
Lola blinked, and
turned back. "Nyu?"
Rekk (7:10:05 PM):
"This is where those lovely
promotion duels are taking place, isn't it?" Yep. It's Jin again.
Ed looks over at him. "Reeh? Oh... didn't...
I... meet you once?"
Kitsune (7:10:52 PM):
She shook head,
shivering all over, and stepped back to her spot. Big, blue, didn't want
a thing to do with him. Not now, not like this...
"Well, they were taking
place until yer ugly mug showed up. All spectators, SIDDOWN!"
Kitsune (7:11:50 PM):
She bowed a bit
at Ed. "Good to see you again."
Ed nods back, smiling at her. "Nice to see
you too... didja keep Bee safe?"
Kitsune (7:12:52 PM):
She gave a nod.
"Yes. We've had a good hiding spot. But he's very glad to be able to walk
through the forrest again."
Rekk (7:13:36 PM):
"....Well I have stepped
on a lot of small people. Perhaps you were one." Then comes Towa's delightful
comment. "....My, such incompetence to yell at a student like that..."
He then makes his way to the stands.
Ed nods, smiling. "Good.Everything's safe
now, so we can duel again... but don't think thatjust 'cause we're friends
I'm going to go easy on ya'! ...Or anything!Erm. I mean. ...Can I get a
handicap? She's a yellow and I'm a red!"
"Hmph. Bet if it were
Chronos doin' the yelling it'd be just swell." Towa mutters before
clearing his throat.
"THAT'S THE POINT, FINKLESTEIN!"
Rekk (7:15:35 PM):
Rekk (7:15:42 PM):
"No handicaps....get on
with the duel."
Kitsune (7:15:48 PM):
She giggled, pulling
her deck out. "I wouldn't expect anything less. I'll do my best too!"
"Eesh," Mylene mutters
in the stands. "He can't even do a promo duel without calling for handicap."
Kitsune (7:16:32 PM):
She blinked, lookign
up the stands. "We coudl let him start first! If.. that's okay!"
"What?! Errrrr... FINE THEN. I'm going to
beat the everloving snot out of you! Without a handicap!"
Kitsune (7:16:54 PM):
Sigh. Sitting in
the stands, laptop in lap is dear Mairi-sensei. "Can't seem to have a duel
without so much talking..."
Ed looks over at Mylene, complete with fire-eyes.
"I AM NOT A WEAKLING YOU... YOU... RIVAL!"
Rekk (7:17:28 PM):
heard rumors that Napoleon-Sensei is going to attempt to remove the Osiris
"Hm.. Is that so?"
Rekk (7:18:10 PM):
"I certainly don't wish
to just send that many children away...but I must say, it certainly wouldn't
hurt the school's reputation."
Mylene just waves her
hand in a "Yeah, yeah..." fashion.
Rekk (7:18:45 PM):
He then addresses the arena.
"Mister Finklestein...your opponent has given you the first move."
Kitsune (7:18:48 PM):
So much fighting for so little. "Nyu..." She looked at Ed. "Shall we start?"
Rekk (7:18:53 PM):
"Stop talking to the spectators
"Reeh... fine. I'll take the first move. DUEL!"
He draws six, and looks at his hand.
"Perhaps.. Then I wonder
what would become of Ra dorms, going from middle to bottom..." she continues
with her typing.
Kitsune (7:19:27 PM):
She gave a sigh,
and pulled five cards, looking at them with a smile. "Nyu!"
"Heh. Yellow'd be the
new Red, that's what."
"I... I lead with Pot of Greed! Hah!"
Kitsune (7:20:06 PM):
She gave a nod.
"Good! Draw two then!"
The giant jar appears,and two cards shoot
out of Ed's deck, and into his hand. "If you don'tknow what this card does...
well... really, even I know what this carddoes!"
Rekk (7:20:16 PM):
"...Your daughter is in
Red, isn't she Towa?"
"S'what I hear." Towa
waves a dismissive hand, trying to stifle any potential nepotism.
Ed looks at his hand, andsmiles. "Alright
then! I summon Sonic Bird in attack mode! This card,when summoned, lets
me pull a ritual spell card from my deck to myhand! And I pick, Doriado's
Kitsune (7:22:06 PM):
She blinked a little,
tilting her head. "Cute bird."
"Thanks! Now, I... I'llset one card facedown,
and uhh... one more card facedown! Go, Lola!" Heends his turn, sweating
slightly, but... well... he hadn't died yet!That was a plus!
Kitsune (7:23:23 PM):
She giggled, and
pulled a card. "Thanks! Draw!"
Kitsune (7:24:11 PM):
She tilted her
head at her hand, then looked at the bird. "Hmmm... I'll set one monster
in defence... And... One facedown card."
Kitsune (7:24:30 PM):
She siled back
at Ed. "That's all for me."
Ed blinks, and then pushes a button on his
duel disc" Oh? Wait... wait... before you end... I have a quickplay spell!"
Kitsune (7:25:04 PM):
Ed raises a hand. "I play Mystical Space Typhoon
on your facedown card!" The vortex comes up and goes to wash it away.
"Aaaawww... My labyrinth." She sniffed a bit.
"Now... I draw!" Ed draws a card, and looks
Ed smiles. "This turn starts off with one
card facedown, and then I play a spell card! Doriado's Blessing!"
"By tributing my Senju ofthe Thousand Hands
from my hand, I can summon Elemental MistressDoriado to the field! In attack
mode!" In a flash of light, thepriestess appears.
Kitsune (7:27:51 PM):
She gave a nod,
smilling. "Nice..." She tilted her head a bit. "But... a bit weak? Nyu?"
Kitsune (7:28:04 PM):
She looked at her hand.
"...SHE IS NOT WEAK!" Edfieryeyes and points
at the facedown monster. "SONIC BIRD! DESTROY IT!"The jets hum to life,
and the bird is shot at the monster.
Rekk (7:28:51 PM):
"...What was that?" Shishio
mumbles at Ed's outburst.
Kitsune (7:29:22 PM):
"Skull Dog Marron!
Deflect!" She kull dog leaps up at the bird, and smacks it back toward
Ed's direction. (1350/2000)
"Huh? Oh, that. That's
that card Ed's in love with. Or somethin'."
Ed gets smacked in the face bya bird. Graceful,
isn't it. (7400) "Reeh... I end..."
Rekk (7:29:53 PM):
"...In love with?"
Kitsune (7:30:03 PM):
She giggled. "Thankies!
"Waaaay too attached to
that Doriado..." Mylene mumbles from far back in the stands, otherwise
occupied with her laptop.
"Yeah. Y'know he actually
ruined one of Takumi's comps just 'cause he called that card a name?"
Kitsune (7:31:22 PM):
She looked at her
cards again, carefully looking and finally placed one on the duel disk.
"One monster facedown... And that ends my turn."
Rekk (7:31:57 PM):
"Then... I draw!"
She chuckled slightly.
"My.. Quite obsessive."
"It's kinda cute, but...
y'know." Towa mumbles. "Otaku."
Ed smirks, looking at hiscards, then at Lola,
then backa t his cards. "Okay! I tribute SonicBird now... and I summon...
Thestalos, the Firestorm Monarch, in attackmode!" (2400/1000) In a rush
of hellfire, the bird vanishes.
Kitsune (7:33:17 PM):
She blinked, and
"I'm not sure if you knowhis effect, so I'll
tell you. First, one of the cards in your hand isdestroyed. And if it's
a monster, you lose 100 life points for each level it has!"
Chaos (7:33:50 PM):
Over in the stands,
well, not in the stands, a bit above them, sitting on an spiritual cloud
of sand is a duel spirit, "He can win this... I think..."
Chaos (7:34:08 PM):
Aussa has both
eyes on her book, and a third eye floating above the arena watching the
Kitsune (7:34:13 PM):
"Now, Thestalos! Destroy Marron. But... be
gentle!" The creature tosses a fireball at it.
Kitsune (7:35:27 PM):
She coudl only watch as the skull dog was burned to ashes. "Nyu..."
Mylene raised an eyebrow.
Be gentle? Oh, brother.
"And Doriado, Attack the facedown!" A whip
comes out of nowhere and goes cracking towards the set monster.
Kitsune (7:37:23 PM):
"NYU!" She covered
her eyes as the little squirrel was cracked into two by the whip. "Nimble
Kitsune (7:37:42 PM):
climbed up by 1000, and two other facedown cards were placed on the field.
"Oh. Those things... Gehh, I have to end,
Kitsune (7:38:25 PM):
She gave a nod.
"Weak, but very good... Draw!"
Kitsune (7:39:19 PM):
She gave a whimper,
and looked at the field. "No choice..."
Kitsune (7:39:54 PM):
"I summon Gyaku-Gire
Panda!" A huge panda apreared with a roar (1800/1600)
Kitsune (7:40:33 PM):
Attack the elemental mistress."
Ed's eyes widen, and he gulps. "Don't hurt
Kitsune (7:41:04 PM):
The panda roared,
and leaped to the lady, bringing his claws down on her.
Doriado is effectivelydestroyed in that pixilated
way monsters always die, and Ed's eyeswiden. "...Why'd you have to go and
do that..?" (6800)
Kitsune (7:41:43 PM):
It's attack then
lowered by 500.
Kitsune (7:42:10 PM):
"Because... I had to?" She whimpered. "You killed Marron..."
Kitsune (7:42:24 PM):
She shook her head.
Ed sighs, and draws. "This duel, there's going
to be a lot of exploding monsters, aren't there?"
In the stands, an ear
perked. Marron? ... Ooh, he did, didn't he...? Mylene chuckled lightly
to herself. "I'll need to make sure Rush pays Ed a visit."
Kitsune (7:43:23 PM):
and gave a nod. "Maybe..."
"Alright then..." He setsone card facedown,
and the sillhouette appears on the field. "I set acard facedown! Now, Thestalos!
Destroy that Panda!" Another fireball isflung..
Kitsune (7:44:21 PM):
Seh covered her
eyes once more. "EEEE!" The panda didn't stand a chance in that hellfire.
"Now... I set a monsterin defense mode. And
that ends my turn. Sorry!" The monster appears,and Ed waves an 'I'm sorry!'
Kitsune (7:46:14 PM):
a bit, and pulled another card. "Draw!"
Kitsune (7:47:28 PM):
She looked at her
cards, and whimpered once more. "I set one monster facedown... And end
"Then... I draw!"
Ed eyes the card he justdrew, and shakes his
head. "Well, okay. Why not. I set a monster indefense mode, and play Swords
of Revealing Light. Thestalos, destroy aMomonga... And I'm done."
Kitsune (7:50:33 PM):
She closed her
eyes. She didn't want to see another go like this, but it had hapenned...
Kitsune (7:50:43 PM):
Ed nods. "Come on... You and me... neither
of us like this, I know. But... We'll have to end it quickly then, right?"
Kitsune (7:51:24 PM):
She looked back,
and gave a nod. "Yes..."
Kitsune (7:52:36 PM):
The watched as
the light shone, revealign the other flyign squirrel, and a small white
cat with a safety helmet. The little cat seemed to hop by Lola's side,
and rubbed itself on her leg. 'Nyu.'
"Alright... make your move, and make it a...
pretty good one."
Kitsune (7:53:43 PM):
She shook her head.
"I'll try..." She placed one card facedown. "One more defender..."
Kitsune (7:54:31 PM):
"End turn..." She
looked down at the cat at her feet, and reached down, petting it. "It's
Ed draws, and looks at the next card.
"Mm... I won't kill that kitten. Okay? I summon
Sonic Bird! And with it I pull a Doriado's Blessing.
Kitsune (7:55:55 PM):
She gave a nod.
The card shoots from hisdeck to his hand,
and he looks over the field. "...Hmm... Sonic Bird, finish that last Momonga.
And Thestalos... the facedown monster."
Kitsune (7:57:02 PM):
She covered her
eyes once more as the little squirrel bit the dust, and a small purple
kitten was burned down. "Nyu..." (9900)
"Aahh! That was another one of the kittens!
Ed shakes his head. "I... I end my turn! I
didn't mean to! Sorry!"
Kitsune (7:57:52 PM):
She shook her head,
takign a deep breath, "It's okay... it was suposed to happen..."
Kitsune (7:57:58 PM):
She pulled a card.
Chaos (7:58:02 PM):
Aussa shakes her
head, "Nice is one thing... but... that isn't a petting zoo..."
Towa shakes his head.
"S'better when th' kid's all riled up... this is gettin' sad."
Kitsune (7:58:57 PM):
She looked at the
card, and gave a nod. "This is it..."
Kitsune (7:59:07 PM):
"I play the magic
Kitsune (7:59:20 PM):
"You know what
this one does, I hope?"
"...Uhh... Monsters summoned go to defense
mode, or something?
Kitsune (7:59:59 PM):
She gave a nod.
"Every sumonned monsters. turn to defence, yes..."
Ed's eyes widen. "Wait... I remember this
comb--You're not very nice."
Kitsune (8:00:52 PM):
"And with that..."
She looked at the kitten at her feet. "Rescue cat, use your special ability."
Kitsune (8:01:02 PM):
"Sorry... But I
have to figth back somehow."
"...It's fine. Do what you have to, and I'll
do what I have to."
Kitsune (8:01:30 PM):
The cat flipped
it whistle in it's mouth, and blew on it with strength before disapearing.
Kitsune (8:02:31 PM):
"I tribute it to
summon two Blade Rabbits!" Two rabbits apeared, hopping on the field.
Ed sighs. "I know... what's about to happen
Kitsune (8:03:38 PM):
She gave a nod,
and the two rabbits hopped underground. Soon enough, the Flame monarch
and the Sonic bird blew up into digital dust. "Eyup! Nyu!"
"Hold it...." As theSonic Bird explodes, Wynn
appears right behind it, chanting a spell. "Ihave a trap card here, you
know. Spiritual Wind Art Myabi. And I'llactivate it after the targets were
Kitsune (8:04:26 PM):
She blinked. "Nyu?"
"I tribute the Sonic Birdyou just targeted,
and with it I send Stumbling right back to the verybottom of your deck!"
Wynn fires forth a spell at the Stumbling, whichis carried off in a small
Kitsune (8:05:35 PM):
She gave a small
"Sorry... but we're both playing to win, right?"
Kitsune (8:06:28 PM):
She gave a nod.
"Nyu. I mean... Yes."
Kitsune (8:07:20 PM):
"But at least that's
Kitsune (8:07:41 PM):
"I summon Gyaku-Gire
Kitsune (8:08:19 PM):
"... and that ends
my turn." The two rabbits dissapear again.
Ed draws a card, and shakes his head. "What's
that thing do, anyways?"
Kitsune (8:09:27 PM):
"For every monster you have on your field, it gains five hundred attack
Kitsune (8:09:46 PM):
"It can also pass
right through defense points."
"Well... I have two monsters. So... it's at
1800 right now..."
Kitsune (8:10:37 PM):
She gave a nod.
"First... I summon Manju of the Ten Thousand
Hands! Using his effect, I bring an Elemental Mistress Doriado to my hand!"
"Then, I play Doriado's Blessing... and I
tribute Manju to summon Doriado back to the field!"
Kitsune (8:13:54 PM):
"Next, I reveal defender number one... Magician
of Faith! I want... Pot of Greed. Which I'll play." The Magician shows
up, looking a little high, as Ed gets two more cards.
Kitsune (8:14:48 PM):
"...Iunno. But anyways!" Manic eye glint.
"I flip summon my final defender, Aussa the EarthCharmer! Into attack mode!"
Kitsune (8:16:00 PM):
Lola blinked. "Ny...
"And by her effect... Ican take any earth
monster on the field and bring it to my side of the field, right? And...
that panda's an earth monster?" Ed scratches his head. "So... I'll take
Kitsune (8:18:06 PM):
She gulped, watchign
as the panda switched side. "Huh huh..."
To be honest. I don't know how the heck
that card got into my deck. But okay!
Kitsune (8:18:40 PM):
It's attack seemed
to drop to 800 as it did though.
"Everybody! Direct attack!"
Chaos (8:19:22 PM):
Aussa is now reading
her book on the field as she attacks.
Kitsune (8:19:41 PM):
She blocked her
arms as the rush came. "NYU!" (7100)
"And that... ends my turn!"
Kitsune (8:41:40 PM):
She gave a nod.
Kitsune (8:42:13 PM):
She eyed her cards
a moment, then the other side of the field. "Nyu... I... End my turn."
She lowered her head.
Ed raises an eyebrow. "...I uh... sorry. I
He plays a card on the field, and Doriado's
right arm becomes a crossbow. "I activate Ritual Weapon, and equip it to
Elemental Mistress Doriado!"
Kitsune (8:43:46 PM):
She gulped. "Nyu..."
"Everyone... attack directly! Sorry, Lola!
Kitsune (8:47:14 PM):
She was tossed
aside by the blow, and whimpered. "Gh.. Nyu..." She shook her head, and
got back to her feet. "I... I think so..." (2800)
Ed nods. "Alright then... your move Lola!
And... uhh... Good luck!
Kitsune (8:48:43 PM):
She pulled a card. "DRAW!"
Rekk (8:49:12 PM):
mumbles, stroking his chin slightly.
Kitsune (8:49:22 PM):
She gave another
look at her card. "Mmrrr... Last chance..."
"... He's a lot better
than I thought."
Kitsune (8:50:10 PM):
"I summon Rescue
Cat." (300/100) The little white cat apeared once more, still wearing its
Kitsune (8:50:21 PM):
"And... I set one
Kitsune (8:50:31 PM):
"That ends my turn."
Ed draws. "Alright! Let's finish this!"
"..." He thinks for a moment. "...But... I'd
have to destroy the cat..."
Kitsune (8:53:20 PM):
She looked down
at the cat, whom mewed up to Lola. "Don't worry... everything's going to
be all right..."
"... Alright... fine.Doriado. Attack... Rescue
Kitten! But not too hard, okay?!" She aimsfor the cat, and fires off a
round of her crossbow at it. Please have a switch to defense card...
Kitsune (8:54:17 PM):
Kitsune (8:54:50 PM):
As she said the
words, priests began to apear, and as they prayed, the arrow turned to
"Watchin' this is givin'
me a toothache," an unimpressed Sakuma-sensei mutters.
As the power of Ghandi overtakes the field,
ed smiles. "...Right! I end my turn! Your move, Lola!"
Kitsune (8:55:27 PM):
She smiled, and
gave a nod. "Okay!"
Kitsune (8:55:47 PM):
Kitsune (8:56:08 PM):
"I activate the
magic card, Pot of Avarice.
"Avarice, avarice... was that the one that
looked like Gozeboro Kaiba?"
Rekk (8:56:40 PM):
"SIEG HEIL!" the pot bellows.
Kitsune (8:57:33 PM):
She snickered lightly
as she pulled the five monsters from her grave to her deck. "It lets me
return a few monsters to my deck... and allows me to draw two card."
"Ahh! So you have defenders again!"
Kitsune (8:58:53 PM):
She pulled two
cards. "I had some, but the panda's effect would have only powered him
Kitsune (8:59:20 PM):
"And I need my
kitty... For this. Activate special effect."
Kitsune (9:00:18 PM):
The kitten blew
it's whistle once more, disapearing in a cloud of smoke, revealing two
purple cats. "Two Catnipped Kitten..."
Kitsune (9:00:52 PM):
"Whom I'll tribute
for my big friend..."
Kitsune (9:01:58 PM):
The giant purple
monster apeared behind Lola, giving a great roar as it did, showing it's
huge razor sharp teeth as it dwarfed Lola. "Behemoth, the King of All Animals."
Ed's eyes SHRINK, and he falls over onto his
knees. "Thats... really... big. But... HEY! It's exactly on par with Dori-chan!
Ado. Dori ADO."
Kitsune (9:02:53 PM):
"And with his special
effect..." She pulled out two Blade Rabbits from her graveyard, putting
them in her hand.
Kitsune (9:03:44 PM):
"Maybe... But still."
She looked at the charmer. "Behemoth, attack Aussa."
Kitsune (9:04:30 PM):
The beast leaped
toward the small earth charmer with a roar, mouth wide open to swallow
"...I... I... Ehh... no." Ed activates a trap
Chaos (9:04:49 PM):
Aussa is still
reading, not paying attention to the attack.
"Magic Cylinder! I won't let you destroy anyone,
Kitsune (9:05:59 PM):
Her eyes went wide
as she looked at the trap, and then at Bee as it came rigth back at her,
pouncing her to the ground. "OOF!" (100)
Kitsune (9:06:18 PM):
"...I'm sorry... I just panicked and..."
Rekk (9:07:28 PM):
An eyebrow quirks. "Is
Kitsune (9:07:33 PM):
off, and around her. She painfully got back to her knees, and finally back
to her feet. "Gh... Nyu..."
Chaos (9:07:44 PM):
Aussa looks back
and grins to Ed. Then gives a look that screams, 'win already, I'm almost
done with my book and need another'. She's that emotive when her finger
is on the last two pages of her book.
A pencil snaps between
Towa's fingers. "FINKLESTIEN! Quit 'pologizin! This is a duel, not a tea
Kitsune (9:08:00 PM):
"I... End my turn..."
Silvia shakes her head,
off typing again.
we deduct points for that?"
Rekk (9:09:09 PM):
"...." Shishio merely makes
a couple notes on some paper.
"...HEY! I don't WANT to duel some little
girl! She didn't do anything to me!"
"A duel is a duel. It
shouldn't matter who you're dueling..."
"...I summon Exiled Force. Then, I tribute
it to destroy Behemoth..." The group appears, and with a cry of "FOR
THE CALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLD!" they jump into the
air, coming back down with a militairy class satilite onto Bee.
"Mm!" The bear nods at
Silvia's sage words.
Chaos (9:10:47 PM):
"Get off his back,"
Aussa yells at the judges... before realizing that kinda blows the 'ordinary
monster' cover she had.
Kitsune (9:11:21 PM):
Lola's eyes went
wide as she saw the troops plunge into the beast. "BEE!?!?!..."
Rekk (9:11:27 PM):
"But on the same note..."
Rekk (9:11:48 PM):
"Towa-sensei... could you
give 100% power if you had to duel, say... your daughter?"
Kitsune (9:11:50 PM):
Her arms fell to
the ground as the beast was torn down to sreds, and finally disapeared.
"If it were my kid, it'd
"Aussa! Don't talk mid-duel!" "...
Why shouldn't we?" "Reeh...right. It's not
like anyone can hear you..." Ed sighs, shaking hishead. "Anyways! Now I
can just attack and win the game..." And destroy her dreams by putting
her in Red.
Rekk (9:13:11 PM):
"Mm...I'm sure." It wouldn't
be anymore obvious what Shishio thought if he waved a giant flag with 'BEEEE
ESSSS' on it.
"Whatever. Don't ask me
questions if you're not gonna listen to the answer."
Kitsune (9:14:10 PM):
She dropped her
head, and turned back toward Ed. She lifted her head, with a wry smiled.
"Go on... Finish it... Good duel..."
"...I give. You win, Lola. I'm not going to
finish off a defenseless person who's done me nowrong... I'm... that's
not very noble. Right?"
Kitsune (9:14:55 PM):
She shook her head.
"No... No... You told me you'd give me all you have, and this isn't it."
Kitsune (9:15:14 PM):
"I'm just not good
enough, that's all..."
Ed pushes up his glasses, and smirks. "...Tch,
I saw you duel that ball girl. She was a yellow,and you beat her. You deserve
to stay in. I just got a good hand wasall."
Rekk (9:16:09 PM):
"... Mr. Finklestein..."
Chaos (9:16:18 PM):
Kitsune (9:16:22 PM):
She shook her head.
"I did all I could, Ed... That's all..."
"Oh dear goodness..."
Rekk (9:16:40 PM):
"I'm not going to step
in....but I must warn you, any decisions you make in this duel are utterly
Towa just shakes his head,
mutering. "We're friggin' right here... Takin' down the results..."
Chaos (9:16:47 PM):
he always do this?"
"...I really don't know.He's usually a lot
less merciful then this, but then, I've only everseen him be on the winning
side twice... and well, one was Meso, andthe other was you taunting me..."
Mylene, in the stands,
heaves a sigh. "This is my rival? ... Pah."
Chaos (9:17:46 PM):
"That wasn't me,
that was that creepy brain thingy."
Chaos (9:18:17 PM):
"That's like saying
it's your fault if Hiita-chan went and controled you to seduce Ed."
"Fine then. Next time putme up against someone
like Amado. I could duel him. Or Meso. I could duel him too. I... it's
not nice to destroy people who actually care. I'm done with this."
Kitsune (9:18:41 PM):
Lola blinked. "Edward..."
"..." She blushes, and looks away. "Yes,.
well, I mean, you do KIND OF know what's going on in posession, don't you?"
"... Destroy WHAT!? It's
a frickin' exam, not a bloody battlefield! For the love of..."
Chaos (9:19:46 PM):
"Not really, I
know what happened, but I don't remember it. Hard to explain what that
"...I didn't expect youto understand, Lily's-dad-sensei."
Ed looks over at Lola, and offersher a hand. "You played well, but I can
tell you werent up to what you were doing against that ball chick."
"Oh... I usually can tell what I'm doing...
I just can't stop 'cause... the light's just too shiney..."
Kitsune (9:22:12 PM):
She blinked a bit,
and looks at him, blushing. "I..." She trembled a bit, and took his hand.
"You did great... I... I just... I was just lucky back then..."
Doesn't he know that
all that's gonna happen is that she'll get bumped down to Red? Honestly.
"I'm not going to forceyou to have to take
my spot in red. Nobody should be cursed enough tohave to bunk with Enishi.
I fold." He holds out his hand, and then putsit back on top of his deck.
"Nextime, let's just flip a coin."
Kitsune (9:24:50 PM):
She took a deep
breath, and looked down. I let it all down... "Ed..."
Rekk (9:25:08 PM):
"..." A chuckle. "He folded....he's
hilarious..." Came the voice of the elder Honjou from the stands.
"...Just take the win." He smirks. "Nextime
maybe they'll put me up against someone I actually want to beat."
"No kidding..." Comes
another, but slightly sadder voice.
Rekk (9:26:20 PM):
"My...." Shishio continues
taking down notes. "That was quite the duel, wasn't it?"
Silvia shakes her head
again, finishing her typing before closing the laptop. "Deffinetely."
"I mean, really. Why YOU? I actually don't
hate you! You I have no problem with!"
"Promotions, Mr. Finklestin,
have nothing to do whether or not you like the person you're against mind
Kitsune (9:27:13 PM):
"... It's not our
choices. It's the academy's..." She shook her head. "And if I had been
in your place, I probably wouldn't have turned this down..."
"If by 'quite,' you mean
'pathetic,' then I concur." Towa finishes with his own scritches, handing
them over to Shishio.
Chaos (9:27:46 PM):
"Damnit, now I gotta pay up 500 yen
to that bitchnurse..." Takumi actually was in the stands this time, not
watching from his lab.
"Tch, well, I guess that just means I'm noble.
Everyone laughed at what Mobius did too, right? Oh... you weren't there..."
Kitsune (9:28:27 PM):
She shook her head.
"... And when everyone else was fighting, I was in hiding..."
Rekk (9:29:55 PM):
"Pathetic, you say...?
I'm afraid I don't follow, Towa."
Ed shakes his head."...Look. It doesn't matter.
I'm going back to my dorm now, and I'mgoing to tell Enishi I lost. And
when he laughs, I'm going to sit thereon my bed and take it, 'cause there's
more important things."
Kitsune (9:30:34 PM):
She blinked, and
shook her head. "No... You don't deserve that..."
"He's acting like finishing
one exam duel, of which he will have to face several of opponents who have
done "nothing" to 'im..."
Chaos (9:30:48 PM):
Aussa looks down,
"Too bad nobody cares about what you do here Ed..."
"Is like it's the end
of the world. Worse, he's actin' like he's some sorta hero for doin' it."
"Actually... didn't you listen? Decision was
final. As I gave up when I was obviously about towin, I lack the temperament
to be in Yellow."
"I kinda figured he'd
wanna stay around long enough t'finish his Dori-research, y'know?"
Rekk (9:32:18 PM):
"Heh... 'stay around'?
Are you insinuating that he's going somewhere?"
"...He's too sweet. Always has been..." She
Towa sighs. "Lemme guess,
you're gonna fall for this namby-pamby crap and let 'im stay."
Kitsune (9:33:23 PM):
She gave a sigh.
"I should have tried harder..."
"Uhh... My ability to be here wasn't on the
Rekk (9:33:49 PM):
"And I suppose you would
be content to kick out a student that is obviously very skilled, just because
he shows compassion?"
"In the same way you wanna
reward someone f'r giving up just because he might make someone sad."
"Uhh... Are you guys listening at all?"
"What happens when you
have t'duel someone that you really don't wanna when your position IS on
Rekk (9:35:24 PM):
"Mr. Finklestein, please.
The teachers are talking."
Chaos (9:35:29 PM):
Takumi walks on down to the two teachers,
"So Towa, you going to punt one of your daughters friends out like that.
I'll be sure to tell her which vote got him cast off the island."
Rekk (9:35:37 PM):
"I doubt I'd ever have
Ed sighs. "Eeehh."
Rekk (9:35:53 PM):
"There's not a person I'm
attatched to enough for that to be a problem."
"Why th' hell would I
care just because it's one-a her friends? I'm not gonna be one-a those
Rekk (9:36:55 PM):
"Eheh...such a wonderful
Rekk (9:37:10 PM):
"No wonder you have such
wonderful relations with your family." Oh yeah. He went there.
"Wah, wah, just 'cause
I don't break down at the mention of my kid."
"I know my daughter. I
don't think she'd find what he did any more amusing, or like her opinion
would matter in an official academic case."
Chaos (9:38:25 PM):
Takumi sighs, "Right, your the hardass
type, but considering he did just win on all accounts but actually winning,
we've proven his skill. He probably won't forfeit so quickly if more than
just him was on the line."
Kitsune (9:38:30 PM):
Lola shook her
head. "I guess I beter go check back on the kittens..."
Chaos (9:38:35 PM):
"On an academic level, he just won."
"...Look... this wasn't a sudden expulsion
class... my grades are stll,... passable... I don't see why this is an
"On paper, though, it's
Rekk (9:39:48 PM):
"Mr. Finklestein, please."
"Now, if he'd simply played
to err, allowing Misowa the chance to win outright... but a forefit's a
Rekk (9:40:45 PM):
"This discussion is hardly
of any consequence anyway. Knowing you, Towa, and you, Silvia, you're set
in your votes as it stands. As I am in mine."
"Ed can stay, I'm not
gonna try t'kick 'im out... but if he pulls it again, I'm going t'make
sure he gets the full promo/demo treatment."
Chaos (9:42:07 PM):
"You want to overlook his showing of
skill for having a heart softer than yours." Takumi adjusts his goggles
slightly. "On paper it's a forfeit AFTER he practically won the whole match."
"... Y'got money ridin'
on this, doncha?"
Rekk (9:42:32 PM):
Rekk (9:42:44 PM):
"It's 500 yen. Pay Zaniah,
and go away."
Chaos (9:42:55 PM):
"And here I thought you actually wanted to
Silvia eyed Takumi before
pushing up her glasses. "Hmph."
Kitsune (9:43:34 PM):
Lola looked at
Ed. "... Somehow, the caves were more inviting..."
Mylene, now standing beside
Ed, punches him lightly in the arm. "If you go soft on me like that, I'll
never forgive it."
"I WOULD NEVER! You're my rival. It is my
job, no, my duty to crush you into a LITTLE PILE OF FORMERLY YOU THINGS
IN ALL ASPECTS OF EVERYTHING!"
"But what if I do this?"
Mylene hiccups, eyes filling with tears.
Kitsune (9:44:39 PM):
feeling really out of place at the moment.
"...Well, that's OBVIOUSLY you trying to trick
me with your big teary eyes." Ed nods. "You're evil. I know that."
Chaos (9:45:01 PM):
Coughcough, "At any rate, stunts as
stupid as that do need punishment. Give the brat some detention for not
knowing when to forfeit properly. More than that is overkill, as is the
hanging threat of demotion."
"... I AM NOT!" And the
wrench is unmercifully unfurled.
"... I can't get demote--EE!" Ed runs. Runs
far runs fast.
Rekk (9:45:47 PM):
... I'm surrounded by
Kitsune (9:45:53 PM):
lookign at Mylene. "Now he... looks a lot less noble..."
"Thank you, Takumi."
Now that he was cleared of his money issues, he was starting to think like
an actual teacher.
"I agree with giving Finklestien
detention. I feel so much time has been wasted."
Chaos (9:46:37 PM):
"I didn't agree with you, ya ogre."
Mylene blinks, putting
down the wrench. "Y-yeah... It's not like I was gonna really hit 'im."
"He and Misowa will remain
in their current dorms, correct?"
Kitsune (9:47:33 PM):
She gulped a bit.
"For a moment there, I thought you were gonna..."
"Achully, y'said what
I was thinkin', so... that's pretty much an agreement. Or somethin'. Whatever."
Rekk (9:48:23 PM):
"Unless Shokunin or Towa
wish to demote Miss Misowa as well, I believe that is what's to happen."
"Eh. Technically this
was labeled promotional, not demotional, but... The girl tried t'take the
blow, so I don't see any need t'punish 'er."
Chaos (9:49:40 PM):
"You said 'but if he pulls it again,
I'm going t'make sure he gets the full promo/demo treatment' which is flat
out cruel to someone who happens to have a heart in his chest as opposed
to you, who lack one, or me."
"Yeeeah. Again. As in
later, not as in what's goin' on now."
Chaos (9:50:42 PM):
"I see perfect reason to punish them
Chaos (9:51:40 PM):
"Even ready to take a losing blow is
on the edge of losing. While on paper she won, she should not gain from
such a stupid display as that runaway did."
"Never said she should
get anythin, but y'can't punish 'er for Ed being soft. Well, I mean, y'could,
Chaos (9:54:52 PM):
"I'm of a mind to demote her anyway,
dispite that heroic self sacrificing grandstanding Ed did, she would have
lost that duel."
Kitsune (9:55:15 PM):
Lola seemed to
shiver a bit as someone talked about her... Not in a friendly way.
Mylene raised an eyebrow.
"Heyy, don't worry, 'Lo. Worst is that you'll be in my dorm. Not a huge
"True, true." Towa nods.
"So whatta you guys say?"
Kitsune (9:57:05 PM):
She still seemed
worried. "I know, I know... But..." She sighed. "I had just brought back
some kitten, and... Now I guess I won't have the room for them there...
Roomate and all."
Kitsune (9:57:32 PM):
"Nor the food to
feed them..." She fidgetted her fingers.
"Ahah... but... there
are such things as shelters, y'know?" Mylene wondered where stray kittens
came from on an otherwise secluded island.
"Hrm..." she glanced over
at the girl, "... She was going to lose.. But a forfiet is a forfiet. But..
If you really want to demote her.. Eh."
Rekk (9:59:03 PM):
"I think demoting students
for winning sets a dangerous precedent..."
Chaos (9:59:17 PM):
"She didn't win."
Kitsune (9:59:30 PM):
"Maybe... But I
wanted to take care of them, you know?" She shook her head. "It's not going
to happen now..."
Chaos (9:59:34 PM):
"Towa said it himself, she was ready
to accept her defeat."
Rekk (9:59:37 PM):
"Are those goggles impeding
Rekk (9:59:56 PM):
"Oh, so now it's a sin
to accept defeat, as well as be compassioante?"
Chaos (10:00:19 PM):
"My job is to judge the students on
the skills shown in dueling."
Chaos (10:00:28 PM):
"Winning by default is not showing ANY
"I also said on paper
that it's a forefit, so technically she is the victor."
Chaos (10:01:00 PM):
"We reward students when they lose thanks
to their showing of skill."
Kitsune (10:01:29 PM):
She looked at the
group of teachers. "Did those guys major in debates?"
Chaos (10:01:33 PM):
"I'm not setting a new standard, I'm
using the one we have."
"Dunno... I think they
just like to argue. Though... that one teacher wasn't really a judge for
this, was he?"
Chaos (10:02:43 PM):
"Actually, I am, but I don't like sitting
with them, usually I don't like sitting in the room."
Kitsune (10:02:45 PM):
She shook her head.
"I don't even think I've seen him that often either."
"S'not like she totally
lacked skill the entire duel, either, though."
"Ehh..." Mylene shrugged.
"So, Lo', y'wanna, uh, go do something? Next duel's not for a while n'all."
Chaos (10:05:24 PM):
"She didn't show the skill needed to
remain in Ra Yellow. Besides, this is an even crueler punishment for Ed
than any ammount of detention."
Kitsune (10:06:10 PM):
She smiled, and
gave a nod. "Sure... By the looks of things, we might be spending more
time together..." She sweatdropped again, looking at the teachers.
".. Didn't you suggest
detention in the first place?"
Chaos (10:06:38 PM):
"If Ed didn't forfeit, she would havelost,
all signs of the duel pointed to that direction. And who said I didn't
think this was good to put with the detention?"
"Eeyeah... don't mind
Taki, darlin, he just likes t'argue for nothin..." He whispered in Silvia's
ear. "I think losin' 500 yen's what's drivin' 'im, if y'know what I mean."
"There's enough drama
in this school as is, Takumi-sensei.. Detention would be enough for the
boy." She then eyed Towa as he whispered to her, giving a shrug.
"Aaanyway, Shishio's th'
big guy on campus anyways, so I'm gonna let Taki here bother him until
he gets what he wants. Gonna take a lunch break."
Chaos (10:09:14 PM):
"Oh yeah, Ogre-san."
Chaos (10:10:41 PM):
"In case you were
wondering, my bid to demote Lola is not personal. It's completely professional
in that Ra Yellow is the dorm I'm staff to, and that she did not match
the criteria for being in this dorm."
Chaos (10:10:48 PM):
"Just in case you questioned my motives."
"Yadda, yadda, yadda..."
Sakuma is waving as he walks out the door.
"...A lunch break doesn't
sound too bad." she said, glancing at Towa leaving.
Chaos (10:16:07 PM):
"Might as well get to work on my analysis
while I eat... see you folks later." Heads off to his lab.
Rekk (10:17:11 PM):
"Indeed..." Shishio packs
all his things together, and shortly thereafter, has exited.
Silvia left as well, laptop
Chaos (10:18:56 PM):
