Viewtiful Rekk (7:25:00 PM): ---------------------------------------------------------------------
Polk Kitsune (7:27:34 PM): Deep into the forest, a trio of students walked along an unseen path in the foilage. Meso was going in a straight direction toward the destination. Well, as straight as could be though the branches, leaves and trees.
Polk Kitsune (7:28:08 PM): He looked back at the other two for a moment. "We're coming in close. Prepare yourselves."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:28:26 PM): "..." Amado stops.
Viewtiful Rekk (7:29:06 PM): "I'm gonna circle around behind, guys. If this goes bad, I think that'll be the best place to be."
Myushu (7:29:22 PM): "O.. Okay."
Polk Kitsune (7:29:42 PM): He gave a quick nod. "That won't hurt."
Polk Kitsune (7:29:56 PM): "Just be quiet when you come in close."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:30:43 PM): He pauses, and half-mumbles something that sounds like "gooluck" before walking off.
Polk Kitsune (7:30:51 PM): He looked at Jenna, and gave a nod. "Stay close, Jenna."
Myushu (7:31:36 PM): "H..Hai." she moved a little closer to Meso.
Polk Kitsune (7:33:13 PM): He kept on going, pushing bushes aside as he uncovered the way to a clearing. The building sat upon a small hill, facing the sun. Or whatever was left of it.
Polk Kitsune (7:34:30 PM): The building was old, and halfway broken apart. Mold, plants and vines were growing on the walls that weren't torn down by erosion. The biggest part was the wall holding a huge tinted glass window.
Polk Kitsune (7:34:50 PM): Meso walked toward it, looking around carefully. "This is it..."
Myushu (7:35:32 PM): "H-huh.." Jenna looked on, following Meso, thinking too much of what she'd say to care much for the scenery.
kwikkidus (7:36:05 PM): "...Why did you bring her with you, Munos? I recall ordering you to not take her as a pet?" came a coy mutter, as Kirli walked out of the doorway. She was in a particular tight fitting corset, and a certain poofy dress.
Polk Kitsune (7:38:02 PM): He shrugged. "Couldn't help it, really. She wanted to talk with you, and I couldn't pull her off."
Myushu (7:37:04 PM): "Kirli..."
kwikkidus (7:37:32 PM): "...Tell me. Why are you here, Jenna? What reason is there?"
Myushu (7:38:24 PM): Jenna nodded her head. "I wanted to talk to you.."
kwikkidus (7:39:48 PM): "...What is there left to say, hmm..? What can you talk about now? Are you back to rub it in more?! Is that it?! Haven't you done enough already?"
Myushu (7:40:20 PM): "No! I don't want to talk about that! I'm not trying to.. rub anything in.."
kwikkidus (7:41:01 PM): "Then what do you want, Jenna? What is there..?" Her eye twitches, and she places her hand angrily on her hip.
Myushu (7:41:43 PM): "Nrm.." she looks at Kirli, her gaze slowly going down as she tries to find her words. "E...Enishi.."
Polk Kitsune (7:42:04 PM): "She's trying to be sorry... That's how you deal with her?"
Viewtiful Rekk (7:42:27 PM): Amado watches from a safe position. ...Dammit Meso, don't blow your cover...
kwikkidus (7:43:05 PM): "...Weren't you the one with the girl you were specifically trying to break for your own twisted pleasure? You don't have a right to scold me."
kwikkidus (7:43:33 PM): She then glares at Jenna. "Yes. I destroyed Enishi, and took Terros from him. Was that what you wanted me to say? I did. It was me."
Myushu (7:44:04 PM): "Why did you then? He didn't do anything to you!"
Polk Kitsune (7:44:23 PM): Meso's eye twitches. "Right... Right..."
kwikkidus (7:45:06 PM): "Because I needed what he had... because I am tired of this world. It has... been long. too long. But finally, I suppose it shall all end."
Myushu (7:45:31 PM): She frowns. "Kirli... What are you doing?"
kwikkidus (7:48:32 PM): "...What do you mean, what am I doing? I am going to finish the world. After countless many years... I shall end it. All of it."
Myushu (7:49:44 PM): Jenna grows silent for a moment, just staring at her. Was this her fault? Or was.. Kirli just like Meso said?
Polk Kitsune (7:50:09 PM): Meso blinked, and raised an eyebrow. "End the world?"
Myushu (7:50:16 PM): "...Kirli," she piped up, "...don't do that."
kwikkidus (7:50:31 PM): Kirli stares right back, her face unreadable. "Why shouldn't I?"
Myushu (7:50:48 PM): "Because.. that's.. that's not right!"
kwikkidus (7:52:22 PM): "...Is it right to toy with a fair maiden'sheart? To show her something she wanted more than anything else... and have it taken from her? To tell her it can never be hers?"
Viewtiful Rekk (7:52:34 PM): ...Kuso...this can't possibly end well... Amado narrows his gaze.
kwikkidus (7:52:50 PM): "A world that would do such a thing is better extinguished!" She throws her arm to the side, wearing a look of rage.
Myushu (7:53:26 PM): Jenna shrinks back. "K..Kirli.. I'm sorry! But.. please.. don't do this! I'm sorry..."
kwikkidus (7:56:30 PM): "It is fairly obvious where your loyalties truly lie." She shuts her eyes, hand placed on her pendant. "It's not your fault.. you can't help how you look. But... I cannot excuse the world that created you."
Myushu (7:57:35 PM): "Kirli..."
kwikkidus (8:01:29 PM): "...No, not even for you. I cannot allow you to stop me... I can't let anyone." Pink stone oozes out from between her fingers, flowing down her shoulder to her stub, flowing outward. "...Do you understand?"
Myushu (8:04:02 PM): Her eyes widen a little. "No.. Kirli.. Don't do this! I don't want to be against you!"
Polk Kitsune (8:06:08 PM): Meso's eyes narrowed as he saw the pendant change shape. "What the...?"
kwikkidus (8:07:14 PM): "...Too late." her other arm finishes itself, gleaming slightly. it breaks off finally, tightening around her shoulder, and she bends her arm slightly. "Hmm hmm... So this is the sort of power a god can give?"
kwikkidus (8:07:41 PM): "...Normally this arm requires most of the spirits I had amassed.. but it feels so insignifigant...! Why didn't I do this before?!"
Viewtiful Rekk (8:07:45 PM): "...I dunno about that."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:07:58 PM): "But here's the power a demon can give." Kirli suddenly has a roundhouse headed towards her jaw.
kwikkidus (8:08:32 PM): "Ghhk!" Her head snaps over to the side, and rubs her cheek. "You again..."
Myushu (8:09:01 PM): "Nrm.." She steps back. I didn't help at all...
Viewtiful Rekk (8:09:33 PM): Amado pulls back his bokuto and brings it forward, attempting to smash it right into the same place.
Polk Kitsune (8:10:17 PM): Meso placed an arm around Jenna, pulling her back. "This might get ugly..."
kwikkidus (8:11:39 PM): This time, her pink arm gets in the way of the attack, and she glares at him. "What are you hoping to accomplish?"
Myushu (8:12:06 PM): She glanced up at Meso, frowning, and looked back a the two. "..This is my fault, isn't it?" she asked lowly.
Viewtiful Rekk (8:12:28 PM): "Kh..!" Amado looks very surprised. This is with Berserk's energy...and she's holding it back like it's nothing...!
Viewtiful Rekk (8:12:38 PM): "MESO! JENNA! GET OUT OF HERE!"
Polk Kitsune (8:12:50 PM): He shook his head. "No... I don't think..."
kwikkidus (8:13:14 PM): "...This arm is not powered by my muscles but by my will. And it is not flesh, but something no amount of strength can break." she smirks at him. "You had best come up with a better plan."
Polk Kitsune (8:13:25 PM): He whinced inwardly. "Jenna... Let's go..."
Myushu (8:13:47 PM): "H..hai.."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:14:00 PM): Amado begins sweating. Dammit...I can only do this for so long... He suddenly spins in place in the opposite direction and brings the bokuto towards her other side.
Polk Kitsune (8:14:37 PM): He gave a nod, grabbed Jenna, and leaped into the air, toward the forest. "Good luck, Amado! Come back well!"
Viewtiful Rekk (8:14:57 PM): "Just GO!" He snaps back.
kwikkidus (8:16:13 PM): The sword rams right into her side, as, though she hates to admit it, her side is her weakness. There's a snapping sound, and she holds her side, breathing raspily.
Viewtiful Rekk (8:17:07 PM): "!!" Amado notices this. He pulls back the sword above his head...and goes for the pendant around her neck next.
Myushu (8:17:08 PM): Jenna gripped onto Meso as he leaped away. "Uur.."
Polk Kitsune (8:18:08 PM): Meso held on tightly as he made his escape, leaping away from the clearing.
Polk Kitsune (8:18:42 PM): "Whatever she's doing, Jenna... She chose this path herself. No one else."
Myushu (8:19:12 PM): "...If I had just stayed with Eon-kun.. she wouldn't be so upset..."
kwikkidus (8:20:06 PM): Her hand could reach it this time, and it seemed to be there, holding it tightly, as more of the material started to leak from within her fingers once more, this time flowing down her side. "You... you are not human."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:21:24 PM): Amado sturggles to pull his weapon free. "...I'm no less human than you."
kwikkidus (8:22:17 PM): "...I am fully human. I am simply... preserved well." The material seeps its way into he wound on her right side.
Viewtiful Rekk (8:23:02 PM): "...Kh!" Amado flinches, his eyes snapping shut. When they open again, they're blue once more.
kwikkidus (8:23:41 PM): She stands fully again, her ribs seeming to have been splinted on the inside. "Tell me, then... what are you?"
Viewtiful Rekk (8:23:51 PM): "...."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:23:55 PM): "I'm Amado Tsukayama."
kwikkidus (8:24:13 PM): "That wasn't vauge enough for me. Could you please be less specific?"
Viewtiful Rekk (8:24:17 PM): "I'm a samurai in training. Also..." He lifts up an arm, Duel Disk at the ready.
Viewtiful Rekk (8:24:24 PM): "I'm the one who's gonna stop you, right here."
kwikkidus (8:24:41 PM): "...You seem so sure of yourself... Tell me then, what is it you're going to wager?"
Polk Kitsune (8:24:44 PM): "... I don't know..."
Polk Kitsune (8:24:58 PM): "Whatever it is... She can't continue this way."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:25:07 PM): "...."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:25:15 PM): "I don't have anything to wager."
kwikkidus (8:25:38 PM): "Then why should I waste my time upon you?"
Myushu (8:26:01 PM): "..." A sigh.
Viewtiful Rekk (8:26:43 PM): "...I don't care. Pick something for me to wager."
kwikkidus (8:27:09 PM): "...Have any duel spirits?" She hums, placing her gloved hand to her chin.
Viewtiful Rekk (8:27:25 PM): "...."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:27:27 PM): "No."
kwikkidus (8:29:33 PM): "Then... perhaps I shall see if my hypothesis is true."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:31:46 PM): "..." He quirks an eyebrow. "What hypothesis?"
kwikkidus (8:32:28 PM): "I know my pendant can take in spirits... I wonder, though, if it can take the spirit of a human." She hums, eyeing him cooly. "And yours... in particular, is unique."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:32:55 PM): "...What...?" He asks, taking a couple steps back.
kwikkidus (8:33:56 PM): "...it seems fair. What would you want if you won?"
Viewtiful Rekk (8:34:30 PM): "...You hate this world so much?"
Viewtiful Rekk (8:34:40 PM): "If I win, then you die. Just you."
kwikkidus (8:36:51 PM): "And if I win, then you... Well, I am not certain if you die... or anything else." She hums. "I have never been inside this pendant, you see. But at the very least... your soul will not be in your body either."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:37:20 PM): "....Fine."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:37:33 PM): Amado activates his Duel Disk, his life points going to 8000. "Let's go."
kwikkidus (8:38:05 PM): Kirli's arm grows a duel disc as well, and she places her deck into it. "Very well."
kwikkidus (8:39:22 PM): "I will be going first."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:39:31 PM): Amado silently draws five.
kwikkidus (8:40:02 PM): Kirli draws six, and eyes her hand.
kwikkidus (8:41:31 PM): "I summon Blast Magician, and I set a card facedown." The mage appears, with a card behind it. "Make your move."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:42:48 PM): "Draw."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:43:20 PM): "I play Mystical Space Typhoon on your face down card!"
kwikkidus (8:43:51 PM): "I will activate Dimension Magic, then, tributing my Blast Magician for Dark Magician Girl!"
Viewtiful Rekk (8:44:17 PM): "..Fine. I summon Undead Lightning Dragon!"
kwikkidus (8:44:38 PM): "...Hum?"
Viewtiful Rekk (8:44:53 PM): The corpse of a dragon appears, lightning surging around its body from multiple steel points that seem to be manually affixed to its body. (1900/0)
kwikkidus (8:45:26 PM): "...Tasteless."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:45:47 PM): "Yeah, whatever. Undead Lightning Dragon, attack the Dark Magician Girl!":
Viewtiful Rekk (8:46:12 PM): The lightning begins surging more intensely as the dragon rushes at the spellcaster. (2900)
kwikkidus (8:46:23 PM): "?!" Kirli's eye twitches slightly. "What is that?"
Viewtiful Rekk (8:46:40 PM): "When he battles a monster with higher attack than his, he gains 1000 points!"
kwikkidus (8:47:23 PM): "...Nnnr..." The Girl is exploded, as she is speared. (7100)
Viewtiful Rekk (8:47:48 PM): "...I set one card face down and end my turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:48:15 PM): The lightning dragon slouches, the lightning around its body dying down a bit. (1400)
kwikkidus (8:48:17 PM): "Draw.." She seems, annoyed.
kwikkidus (8:48:53 PM): "Tell me. That effect only applies to attacks, correct?"
Viewtiful Rekk (8:49:42 PM): "Whenever it's in battle."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:49:53 PM): "With something that has a higher attack."
kwikkidus (8:50:16 PM): "...Convenient." A sigh, as she places a card sideways on her duel disc. "Rapid-Fire Magician, defensive mode."
kwikkidus (8:50:52 PM): "Then, I play the spell card, Magic Blast.For each Spellcaster I have, you take 200 damage. Then, because it is a normal spell, Rapid-Fire Magician deals you 400 more."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:51:52 PM): "Kh.." (7400)
kwikkidus (8:52:18 PM): "I am forced to end my turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:52:22 PM): "Draw."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:54:17 PM): "...I sacrifice Undead Lightning Dragon...to summon Undead Dragon: Nocturne!"
kwikkidus (8:54:59 PM): "And what is that supposed to do?"
Viewtiful Rekk (8:55:08 PM): A large purple quadreped dragon appears, gazing harshly at Kirli. (2400/1200) "When Nocturne is succesfully tribute summoned, you take 1000 points of damage!"
kwikkidus (8:56:05 PM): "What?!" (6100) "Grr..."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:56:34 PM): "Now, Nocturne! Attack that Rapid-Fire Magician! Blaze of the Moon!"
Viewtiful Rekk (8:57:03 PM): Nocturne takes in a breath and shoots a stream of pure white flames at the magician.
kwikkidus (8:57:26 PM): The kneeling magician is demolished by the flames. "...At least you didn't attack the moon."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:57:40 PM): "....Whatever. Go."
kwikkidus (8:57:49 PM): "I draw."
kwikkidus (8:58:06 PM): "...I am forced to set two cards facedown, and end my turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:58:11 PM): "...Draw."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:58:32 PM): "...I play the spell card Stamping Crush!"
kwikkidus (8:58:42 PM): "On which one?"
Viewtiful Rekk (8:58:50 PM): Nocturne leaps up and smashes its front foot into the card closest to Kirli's deck.
kwikkidus (8:59:27 PM): Dimension Magic is smashed. (5600)
Viewtiful Rekk (8:59:36 PM): "Now, attack directly!"
Viewtiful Rekk (8:59:57 PM): "Blaze of the Moon!" Nocturne takes in another breath and shoots a stream of white fire at Kirli.
kwikkidus (9:00:06 PM): "..." The white fire engulfs her, and contrary to what one would want... she's laughing as it clears. (3200)
Viewtiful Rekk (9:00:22 PM): "....What's so funny?"
kwikkidus (9:00:39 PM): "I'm going to stop playing games with you now."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:01:41 PM): "....End turn."
kwikkidus (9:02:07 PM): "I draw."
kwikkidus (9:02:30 PM): "Now, I play the trap card Call of the Haunted, to call forth my Dark Magician girl."
kwikkidus (9:02:58 PM): "Then, I activate Sage's Stone, to call forth a Dark Magician!"
kwikkidus (9:04:29 PM): "Now... Dark Magician!" She points at Nocturne. "Dark Magic Attack!"
Viewtiful Rekk (9:05:14 PM): Nocturne screeches out in pain as it's destroyed. (7300)
kwikkidus (9:07:22 PM): "Dark Magician Girl! You go too!" She points right at himn, as the feminine magician fires a stream of hearts at him.
Viewtiful Rekk (9:07:49 PM): "Grg...!" Amado holds his arms up in defense from the stream of pink. (5300)
kwikkidus (9:08:03 PM): "My turn is over. Make your move."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:08:28 PM): "..." Amado draws and glares.
Viewtiful Rekk (9:08:35 PM): "That Dark Magician Girl..."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:08:40 PM): "She's the one that hurt Maiden."
kwikkidus (9:08:47 PM): "...Actually..."
kwikkidus (9:09:04 PM): Kirli puts a finger on her chin. "I think it was my Witch's Apprentice that harmed Maiden."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:09:23 PM): "It was both of them."
kwikkidus (9:09:38 PM): "Oh yes... I remember now." She smiles.
Viewtiful Rekk (9:10:24 PM): Amado glares.
Viewtiful Rekk (9:10:30 PM): "I play Undead Terra Dragon in attack mode!"
kwikkidus (9:10:47 PM): "...Another tasteless undead monster."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:11:14 PM): Another dragon appears, this one rotting whatever ground it steps on. (1700/700)
Viewtiful Rekk (9:11:19 PM): "One reverse card."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:11:20 PM): "Go."
kwikkidus (9:12:04 PM): "Draw. Tell me what your dragon does."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:12:38 PM): "..When it would be destroyed, I can sacrifice it to summon one level four or lower zombie-type monster from my graveyard."
kwikkidus (9:13:12 PM): "...That lightning creature. What was it?"
Viewtiful Rekk (9:13:33 PM): "Level 4."
kwikkidus (9:14:21 PM): She smirks. "...I will set one monster in defense mode, and end my turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:15:08 PM): "...Draw."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:15:46 PM): "Set a reverse....Terra Dragon! Attack the defender!"
kwikkidus (9:17:09 PM): "Apprentice Magician is destroyed. I set Magician of Faith."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:18:14 PM): "Kh..."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:18:16 PM): "Go."
kwikkidus (9:19:01 PM): "I draw."
kwikkidus (9:19:27 PM): "Flip summon, Magician of Faith!" The monster is flipped faceup. "I add Dimension Magic back to my hand."
kwikkidus (9:21:00 PM): "Now,just to be sure, I play a Magic Blast! This time I have three spellcasters, so... it deals you 600 damage!"
Viewtiful Rekk (9:21:37 PM): "Kh...!" Amado holds his hands up defensively as the slightly larger blast hits him. (4700)
kwikkidus (9:21:54 PM): She then points at the dragon. "Dark Magician, attack."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:23:05 PM): "...I activate my reverse card!"
Viewtiful Rekk (9:23:24 PM): "Dragon's Heart!" Amado grabs his deck from his duel disk.
kwikkidus (9:23:36 PM): "...The effect..?"
Viewtiful Rekk (9:23:55 PM): "I ditch three dragons from my deck, one of my dragons on the field has its attack increased by 1000!"
kwikkidus (9:24:19 PM): "...For how long?"
Viewtiful Rekk (9:25:57 PM): "Until the end of the turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:26:08 PM): Amado chooses his three cards, and places them into his grave.
kwikkidus (9:26:48 PM): The Dark Magician is pushed back and destroyed. (3000) Nnnh... Very well then. I set one card and end my turn!"
Viewtiful Rekk (9:27:23 PM): "My turn. Draw!" He slides a card off his deck.
Viewtiful Rekk (9:28:39 PM): "...I sacrifice Undead Terra Dragon!"
Viewtiful Rekk (9:29:09 PM): "Summon - Undead Dragon: Solstice!" A green quadreped dragon appears, and lets out a roar. (2400/1200)
kwikkidus (9:29:43 PM): "...Great. Another large dragon."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:29:45 PM): "When Solstice is summoned, you gain 1500 life points..."
kwikkidus (9:30:08 PM): (4500) "Why thank you... Perhaps I will make things quick."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:30:11 PM): Solstice leaps to Kirli's side of the field. "But you lose two cards from your hand!"
kwikkidus (9:30:29 PM): "I don't have two cards."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:30:30 PM): He slashes the only card in her hand.
kwikkidus (9:31:03 PM): The Dark Magician Girl there falls to the grave. "...I see."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:31:42 PM): "Now...attack the Magician of Faith! Blaze of the Sun!"
Viewtiful Rekk (9:32:10 PM): Solstice takes in a breath and shoots a sphere of flame as bright as the sun at the Magician.
kwikkidus (9:32:29 PM): Kirli covers her eyes, as the magician is destroyed. "Nnnh..." (2400)
Viewtiful Rekk (9:32:40 PM): "...Go."
kwikkidus (9:32:47 PM): "I draw."
kwikkidus (9:33:00 PM): She smiles. "Curtain of Black Magic!"
Viewtiful Rekk (9:34:30 PM): Amado smirks....and the Curtain drops dead, right back into Kirli's hand.
Viewtiful Rekk (9:34:38 PM): "Sorry. That won't work."
kwikkidus (9:34:37 PM): "...What?"
Viewtiful Rekk (9:34:47 PM): Nocturne's spirit appears next to Solstice.
Viewtiful Rekk (9:35:04 PM): "Nocturne and Solstice are siblings. When you killed Nocturne, you pissed off Solstice."
kwikkidus (9:35:11 PM): "...And what does that mean to me?"
Viewtiful Rekk (9:35:24 PM): "So now, as long as Nocturne is in the graveyard and Solstice is on the field, neither of us can activate spell cards!"
kwikkidus (9:35:40 PM): "..." Her eyes widen. "But my deck is..."
kwikkidus (9:36:05 PM): They narrow again, as she glares at him. "Touche. I move Dark Magician Girl to defense mode... and end."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:36:48 PM): ...It's working. My strategy is working... "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (9:37:07 PM): "Go, destroy the Dark Magician Girl! Blaze of the Sun!"
kwikkidus (9:37:28 PM): The Dark Magician Girl is destroyed, and sent to Kirli's grave. "Nnnr.."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:37:35 PM): "Go."
kwikkidus (9:37:39 PM): "Draw..."
kwikkidus (9:38:19 PM): "I... I set a monster and end." She seems downright cowed.
Viewtiful Rekk (9:38:34 PM): And with that, Amado's confidence is growing. "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (9:39:06 PM): "...Attack the defender!"
kwikkidus (9:39:51 PM): The bright fire strikes the facedowncard... and the old man casts a spell right back at the dragon, asKirli smirks. "gullible, I see."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:40:42 PM): Solstice looks surprised, and is destroyed. "Kh...One defender. Go."
kwikkidus (9:41:15 PM): "I draw!"
kwikkidus (9:42:00 PM): "Now... since I can play it once more, I use Curtain of Black Magic!" (1200)
Viewtiful Rekk (9:42:14 PM): "Kh...!"
kwikkidus (9:42:42 PM): The magician emerges from behind the Curtain. "Now... Destroy his set monster! Dark Magic... Attack!"
Viewtiful Rekk (9:43:24 PM): A dragon with a large shield appears for a moment, but is wiped out.
kwikkidus (9:43:44 PM): "That ends my turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:43:56 PM): "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (9:45:26 PM): "...Set a reverse."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:45:30 PM): "Go."
kwikkidus (9:45:38 PM): "I draw."
kwikkidus (9:46:43 PM): "I will tribute Dark Magician for Dark Magician Girl." The former is replaced by the (much cuter) female version.
Viewtiful Rekk (9:47:42 PM): "..." Amado narrows his glance. It's only 100 points stronger...what is she doing?
kwikkidus (9:48:45 PM): She throws out her hand, and a bright light engulfs the girl. "But I have another summon."
kwikkidus (9:49:33 PM): "Dark Magician Girl, become what you weremeant to be! Show him the true power you have!" From somewhere,lightning strikes, and the field clears to show the Dark magicianPrincess, complete with her pink-stoned staff.
Viewtiful Rekk (9:49:55 PM): "...Princess...?" Amado blinks.
kwikkidus (9:50:22 PM): "Princess." she replies, as the spirits in her grave begin to rise once more.
Viewtiful Rekk (9:51:09 PM): "....What's it doing?"
kwikkidus (9:51:36 PM): Ten spirits rise from her grave, and slowlycircle the Princess. "She is gathering spirits... spirits you capturedfor her, like the gullible fool you are."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:51:57 PM): "....What...?"
kwikkidus (9:52:50 PM): "I was manipulating you this entire duel,just like I was ever since we met. You wonderfully useable fool... youlet me get out of a test... and now you give me your very soul on asilver platter."
kwikkidus (9:53:33 PM): The Princess raises her staff, and a stormyvortex bursts forth, taking in the souls. "Ten monsters makes 3000additional attack points!" (5000/1700)
Viewtiful Rekk (9:55:41 PM): "..."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:55:47 PM): "...Just get it over with..."
kwikkidus (9:56:40 PM): "I attack you directly." She points, and the staff fires a massive beam.
Viewtiful Rekk (9:58:10 PM): The attack screams towards Amado....just as bones begin shooting out of the ground, forming a sphere-shaped shield around him.
Viewtiful Rekk (9:58:17 PM): The shield completely abosrbs the attack.
kwikkidus (9:58:29 PM): "...huh?
Viewtiful Rekk (9:59:05 PM): The shield seperates, and one of Amado's reversed cards is in an active position. "Bone Shield. Remove one of my undead dragons from my graveyard to turn all damage to me to 0 for the turn."
kwikkidus (9:59:34 PM): "...I end my turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:59:50 PM): "And to that..." He waves a hand, activating another of his cards. "Emergency Provisions. Sacrifice both of my other cards." (6700)
Viewtiful Rekk (10:00:24 PM): "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:00:42 PM): "...I place one monster in defense mode and end my turn."
kwikkidus (10:00:53 PM): "I draw."
kwikkidus (10:01:20 PM): "Dark Magician Princess... attack!" She points at the new monster. "You're squirming... just like Enishi did."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:02:09 PM): "...Who's squirming?" Another dragon appears, but actually...weathers the blow? (1500/1500)
kwikkidus (10:02:18 PM): "...The hell?"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:03:38 PM): "Undead Desert Dragon. Once when it's attacked and would be destroyed, it's Armor of Sand kicks in." Sand begins dropping in clumps from the dragon's body. "Your attack was negated, and his stats shift!" (0/3000)
kwikkidus (10:04:07 PM): "...That is still nowhere near my girl's strength. I end my turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:04:42 PM): "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:05:12 PM): "...I could pay 500 life points to keep my dragon's stats....but I won't." The armor of sand falls away completely. (1500/1500)
Viewtiful Rekk (10:05:30 PM): "....Go."
kwikkidus (10:06:34 PM): She draws. "A worm... that's all you are,and all you'll ever be. You belong in yellow... you're not good enoughto even defeat a red. Let alone someone with countless years ofpractice. Princess. Destroy the dragon."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:07:48 PM): The dragon is wiped out.
kwikkidus (10:08:14 PM): "I end."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:08:22 PM): "..." Amado wordlessly draws.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:10:20 PM): "...You're right."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:10:27 PM): "I didn't deserve to be in Obelisk."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:10:50 PM): " I thought I deserved it...but I didn't. Hell, I probably don't even deserve to be in Yellow."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:11:10 PM): "Every time something happens....I try to protect them. I try to protect my friends...and I screw up every time..."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:11:58 PM): "Bruce...Alastor...Munos...against all of them, I either was too stupid to see through their schemes, or I just wasn't strong enough to fight them."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:12:51 PM): "How many of my friends got hurt because of my screw-ups....I don't know. It drives me crazy just to think about it."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:13:23 PM): "But now.....THIS IS WHEN I MAKE IT UP TO THEM!" He grabs a card from his hand.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:13:39 PM): "I activate the spell card...DEMONIC NECROMANCY - BONE DRAGON SUMMONING!"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:14:41 PM): Amado's life points drop from 2000, and his graveyard ejects itself. (4700)
Viewtiful Rekk (10:15:39 PM): Amado grabs nearly all the monster cards right out and holds them up.
kwikkidus (10:15:58 PM): "..." She tilts her head to the side, slightly.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:16:25 PM): "My magic card costs me 2000 life points...but when I activate it, I can remove as many of my Undead Dragons from my graveyard as I want! And then, I'm allowed to summon a special monster from my deck!"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:17:33 PM): He grabs his deck from his Duel Disk, and pulls a card out. "Now...I remove...eight of my monsters from play!" Eight undead dragons appear briefly, before shattering.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:18:44 PM): "Now, rise, UNDEAD BONE DRAGON!" He slams the card on to his Duel Disk, and a massive dragon made entirely from bones, with two expansive wings appears and lets out a massive roar.
kwikkidus (10:19:10 PM): "...That is quite possibly the single most tasteless duel monster I have ever seen..."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:19:25 PM): "Now, Undead Bone Dragon's special ability...for every monster I removed from play to summon it...it gains 700 attack points!"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:19:54 PM): "I removed eight monsters, so its ATK is 5600!" The dragon roars again as it powers up. (5600/0)
kwikkidus (10:21:02 PM): "I... see."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:21:04 PM): "I don't care what you find tasteless...this is the end for you!"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:21:44 PM): "Undead Bone Dragon, attack Dark Magician Princess!"
kwikkidus (10:22:50 PM): Kirli's eyes widen, and she reaches out her gloved hand, as the princess is annihilated. "...No... You didn't..." (600)
Viewtiful Rekk (10:23:16 PM): "I did."
kwikkidus (10:23:35 PM): "How... how could you..." The small, pinkstone from her staff bounces onto the ground, and suddenly Kirli starescoldly at him. "You'll pay."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:23:37 PM): "I told you. This is where I make up all of the times I screwed up to my friends."
kwikkidus (10:24:18 PM): "...You can make it up to them..." the small stone from the staff rises into the air. "By surrendering your soul to me!"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:24:31 PM): "...What...?"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:24:37 PM): ...No! It's like with Terros!
kwikkidus (10:25:18 PM): "I pay half of my life points, now that myprincess has been destroyed. And I use it to summon my ultimate gambit!Heart of Orichalcum - Damaa!"
kwikkidus (10:25:35 PM): The pink sphere floats there, not at all threatening. (0/0)
Viewtiful Rekk (10:25:50 PM): "...." Amado says nothing.
kwikkidus (10:26:06 PM): "You probably see this coming... but my creature has an effect."
kwikkidus (10:26:40 PM): "First, as I stated, I have to give up halfmy remaining life points." The energy flows into the sphere,which expands slightly. (300)
kwikkidus (10:27:34 PM): "Then... it searches both of our decks and graveyards for all the spellcasters it can find. How many do you have, hmm?"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:28:10 PM): "..." Amado pulls his deck out, and holds up a single Magician of Faith.
kwikkidus (10:28:53 PM): Meanwhile, countless cards pour out ofKirli's deck. "And I,as you know, play nothing else but. Now, all ofthem are removed from the game, for good!"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:29:14 PM): "...Fine." Amado places his Magician into his RFP slot.
kwikkidus (10:29:15 PM): A massive vortex appears around the stoneonce more, this time sucking in everything it can reach, in what seemsto be a hurricane.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:31:35 PM): "...What now?"
kwikkidus (10:31:49 PM): "It grows. And we see where it stops."
kwikkidus (10:32:42 PM): The stone becomes much much larger,becoming first baseball sized, then watermelon, then soon something thesize of a rather large sphere.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:32:58 PM): ...No...it's okay...it won't be stronger than my dragon...
kwikkidus (10:32:58 PM): "Twenty-eight monsters removed from the game. Three hundred attack points each."
kwikkidus (10:33:51 PM): "That makes... 8,400 attack points!" (8400) "Easily greater than your dragon."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:33:56 PM): "...Kh..."
kwikkidus (10:34:25 PM): "...Are you done?"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:35:59 PM): "...No. I have nothing else to do."
kwikkidus (10:36:28 PM): "Then I draw."
kwikkidus (10:36:43 PM): "I begin with the spell card, Spell Absorption."
kwikkidus (10:37:25 PM): "Then..." She points at the dragon. "Damaa... destroy it."
kwikkidus (10:37:37 PM): Tendrils shoot forth from the ball, aiming to spear the dragon through a thousand different places.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:38:15 PM): A piece of the dragon is knocked away. (4900/0)
kwikkidus (10:38:59 PM): "Your dragon is boned... And you lose life points, hmm? I end."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:39:17 PM): "When my dragon is targetted by an effect or attack, I can give up 700 of its attack points for it to survive."
kwikkidus (10:39:35 PM): "But... shouldn't you lose life points?"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:39:48 PM): "The attack was negated. So no.
kwikkidus (10:40:13 PM): "...As I said.. I am finished."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:40:18 PM): "Draw."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:42:49 PM): "...Go."
kwikkidus (10:43:19 PM): "I draw."
kwikkidus (10:43:35 PM): "One card facedown... and I believe I shall take another piece from your dragon!"
kwikkidus (10:43:45 PM): Yay! More tendrils!
Viewtiful Rekk (10:48:13 PM): (4200)
Viewtiful Rekk (10:49:15 PM): "...Are you done?"
kwikkidus (10:50:09 PM): "...I am."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:50:18 PM): "...Draw..."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:51:09 PM): "...I play my Undead Flare Dragon!"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:51:37 PM): A small undead dragon appears, flames dancing around its body. (1600/0)
Viewtiful Rekk (10:51:51 PM): "My Flare Dragon....can attack you directly!" He points.
kwikkidus (10:52:18 PM): "..." She stares at it.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:52:25 PM): "Go, Undead Flare Dragon! End this!"
kwikkidus (10:52:42 PM): "I... cannot let you win!"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:52:50 PM): The dragon lets out a roar and streaks towards Kirli.
kwikkidus (10:54:03 PM): Priests appear, right in front of the dragon, to hold it back. "I activate Waboku."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:54:44 PM): "...What?!"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:55:01 PM): The flare dragon is repelled and sent back to Amado's field.
kwikkidus (10:55:12 PM): "I have defenses... even now."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:55:46 PM): "....Gh...." Amado clenches his fist.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:55:57 PM): My dragon is in attack mode....no...
kwikkidus (10:57:27 PM): "Anything else?"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:57:33 PM): "....Yeah."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:57:39 PM): Amado grabs his PDA.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:58:01 PM): He dials Lily and Ed's numbers and sends them both.
Sinisquirrel (10:59:06 PM): "Mmn?" Lily picks up the suddenly trilling device. "Yes?"
kwikkidus (10:59:21 PM): Ed answers his too. "Reeh?"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:59:29 PM): "...Hey guys."
kwikkidus (10:59:51 PM): "Hi... How's it going?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:00:02 PM): Amado has a sort of pained smile on his face, like he really doesn't like what he's about to say.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:00:05 PM): "...Not good."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:00:13 PM): "I messed up. I'm about to lose."
kwikkidus (11:00:25 PM): "...Great.." He sighs, shaking his head.
Sinisquirrel (11:00:32 PM): From that expression... "... what did you wager?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:01:07 PM): "...Well...first off..."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:01:14 PM): "I know why Kirli wants the gods..."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:01:23 PM): "She says she's sick of this world...so she wants to end it..."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:01:55 PM): "So..."
kwikkidus (11:02:11 PM): "So..?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:02:13 PM): "We agreed that if I won, she'd end her own life. Only hers."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:02:21 PM): "And if she won...."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:02:35 PM): "She'd take my soul. Like she's taken Doriado's and everything elses."
kwikkidus (11:03:10 PM): "...Reeh?!"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:03:13 PM): "And...I don't have anything left to protect myself with, so..."
Sinisquirrel (11:03:15 PM): "... Amado..." a brief moment as Lily chokes back something. "Where are Jenna and Meso?"
kwikkidus (11:03:30 PM): "...Amado! You'd better not die...!"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:03:31 PM): "I told them to run. They're probably on their way back to the dorm now."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:04:31 PM): "..." A small, weak chuckle.
Sinisquirrel (11:04:41 PM): "All... all right." What should I do? Is there... "Is there anything we can do now?"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:04:44 PM): "I dunno Ed...I dunno what'll happen..."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:04:57 PM): "For the first time since that time...against Terros....I'm really scared."
kwikkidus (11:05:29 PM): "...I'll make her pay for this."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:05:54 PM): "...." He rubs a hand on his eye. "I...I know you will Ed..."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:06:08 PM): "You're strong...way stronger than you were when I first met you..."
Sinisquirrel (11:06:36 PM): "We all will... we'll all do what we can..." This is worse than we thought, much worse.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:06:49 PM): "If I don't get outta this one....just know...I'm so proud of you, Ed...I'm so proud of the person you've become."
kwikkidus (11:06:54 PM): "Ahh... reeh... well..." a blush appears, thank god for phones. "...I'm... really not that great..."
kwikkidus (11:07:16 PM): Amado's being nice... we're doomed.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:08:01 PM): "And...Lily..."
Sinisquirrel (11:08:25 PM): "Amado... don't..."
kwikkidus (11:08:46 PM): Ed pulls the phone away from his ear.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:09:02 PM): Sounds like he just choked something back. "Please...if this goes where I think it's going....I just want to say this before it happens..."
Sinisquirrel (11:10:08 PM): If you say something like that, you're resigned to lose, and if you lose, I... She shakes her head, but doesn't interrupt.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:10:41 PM): "...Lily...I...I love you so much...I love you more than anyone I've ever met..."
kwikkidus (11:11:29 PM): Click. Ed hangs up his end. "Don't... wanna hear this."
Sinisquirrel (11:11:30 PM): "I... I know. And I, for you, as well... because... you were my first friend."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:11:49 PM): "Y-yeah..."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:12:58 PM): "And...for everything with Maiden and Spellman...I'm sorry..."
Sinisquirrel (11:13:42 PM): "... No. I'm sorry. I wasted so much time, when I knew I had you there, and..." She shakes her head again, a hand going over he eyes as a sob comes out.
Sinisquirrel (11:15:17 PM): "I don't know what she'll do to you, but if that's the case, I'll move heaven and hell itself until I get you back! I did it before, and I can do it again!"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:16:12 PM): "Y-yeah...." His voice wavers. "I...I know you guys will get her. I know it."
Sinisquirrel (11:16:59 PM): "M... mn... so just... don't... flinch. Don't look down, or away, because... you're Amado."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:17:18 PM): "...O-okay...." More steadily. "...Okay...."
Sinisquirrel (11:17:53 PM): "... I love you."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:18:14 PM): "...I love you too."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:18:51 PM): "...." He pulls the device away from his ear.
Sinisquirrel (11:18:58 PM): And with that... she clicks the PDA off. Because she doesn't want to say goodbye. She knows he'll understand.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:19:14 PM): Funny thing, it's the exact same case on his end.
kwikkidus (11:19:21 PM): Kirli, meanwhile, is holding up a digitalcamera, recording the entire thing. "Mmm... and... dramatic zoom in onthe alliant hero's face... and... scene!"
Viewtiful Rekk (11:19:26 PM): "..." He closes his eyes for a second.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:19:28 PM): "Turn...end."
kwikkidus (11:19:33 PM): "I draw!"
kwikkidus (11:20:01 PM): She places the camcorder on a nearby conveniently appearing pink tripod, before pulling a card from her deck.
kwikkidus (11:20:21 PM): "Your end of the competetion is really quite touching..."
kwikkidus (11:20:59 PM): "For what it's worth, the boy whose girlfriend I stole... has my apologies. I can sympathize. And the pink-haired girl was... always a little off. But... I'm sure you understand why I couldn't just give it back."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:21:22 PM): "..."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:21:37 PM): "If I could, I would walk across this dueling field and snap your motherfucking neck right now."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:21:46 PM): "Don't speak unless you're calling one of your moves."
Sinisquirrel (11:22:04 PM): "D-damn it... I need..." To call the others? Yes, that, but first, I need power. Enough power to crush whatever gets in my way...
kwikkidus (11:22:08 PM): "...I don't expect you to understand." She points at the Flare Dragon. "Finish him... Damaa-chan."
kwikkidus (11:22:36 PM): Amado... I'll... I have to go fight?
kwikkidus (11:22:48 PM): The mass of tendrils fly towards the dragon.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:22:56 PM): The Flare Dragon is speared relentlessly by the pink tendrils...before the same tendrils wind back at Amado.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:23:12 PM): The Yellows says nothing, and takes the blow fully as it crashes into him.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:23:19 PM): (0000)
kwikkidus (11:24:51 PM): "You lose... Amado." her pendant glows brightly, and one last vortex appears. "And now... you're mine."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:25:15 PM): "...." Amado looks up at her.
kwikkidus (11:25:51 PM): "Something you want to say? Last words I will.. relay them, if that is what you want."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:27:32 PM): "I have absolutely no doubt..."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:27:46 PM): "That my friends will do what I couldn't."
kwikkidus (11:28:30 PM): "...They always seem to, don't they?"
kwikkidus (11:29:09 PM): The vortex grows still larger.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:29:59 PM): "..." Amado says nothing else, and just waits for his fate to come to him.
kwikkidus (11:30:41 PM): And his fate comes rather quickly, as the storm grows, then subsides. "...I shouldn't... wait much longer." I feel dirty. Ew. Ew. Ew.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:31:32 PM): And his body falls listlessly to the ground.
kwikkidus (11:32:47 PM): "So this is... what it feels like taking ahuman. Ick. IIIIIIICK." She has a short moment of being grossed out,before she returns to business, placing her hand once more on thependant. "...Well... it's time to show my hand."
Viewtiful Rekk (11:34:38 PM): It begins raining.
Viewtiful Rekk (11:34:55 PM): ---------------------------------------------------
