Viewtiful Rekk (4:09:44 PM): The waters shifted ever so slightly, almost like a sublte ripple....before a small shoot of bamboo shot out, and several gasps of air was sucked into it. Subtle.
Sinisquirrel (4:10:37 PM): On the shore, a girl with a sandwich was acting awfully cutesy. "Okay, Meso, say 'Aaa...'" At least until she heard several gasps from the lake, that is. "Aaah!?"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:12:59 PM): "..." And suddenly, a man in a white suit/cape ensemble shot out, landing on the ground rather gracefully. "Cripes, I do not know how they do that in the movies!"
Polk Kitsune (4:13:10 PM): "Aaaaahhh?" A blink from the boy as the sandwich never reached it's destination. "Huh? Mylene?" They boy openned an eye, untill suddenly. "WOAH!"
Sinisquirrel (4:13:47 PM): "... KYAAH!" Instantly, the small blonde dove for the safety of her boyfriend's backside. "It's some kind of pervert!"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:14:34 PM): "Hey! I am n-" Pause. "....well, actually that's not true, I am a pervert."
Polk Kitsune (4:15:16 PM): "... At least he's not a closet pervert." His eye twitched a bit. "Must've been caught more than once."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:15:25 PM): "But that's not what brings me here today!" He said, and pointed at the two red-wearing students. "I'm here to speak with you two!"
Sinisquirrel (4:15:36 PM): "... weh?"
Polk Kitsune (4:15:55 PM): "... What? Why?"
Polk Kitsune (4:16:12 PM): "Aren't you suposed to torture Amado, or something?"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:16:32 PM): "Hahah, no, I already did that today."
Sinisquirrel (4:17:14 PM): "...?" Did these two know each other or something? "Meso," she whispered. "Who is this guy?"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:17:25 PM): " is Tuesday, and that's our day for midnight training...." He takes out a soggy notepad and pencil and writes something down, before pocketing them again. "Anywho."
Polk Kitsune (4:18:07 PM): Meso looked back at Mylene for a moment. "Learned from him a while ago... Ichirou's the name, I think. Pro duelist."
Sinisquirrel (4:18:27 PM): "... wooah..."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:19:01 PM): "Former Pro Duelist! Now I'm Ichirou Komatsu, head of Osiris Red!" Pose.
Polk Kitsune (4:19:34 PM): "... WHAT?" The boy had trouble beleiving his ringing ears. "Head of Osiris?"
Sinisquirrel (4:19:37 PM): "Geh!" T-this guy's head of our dorm now!?
Viewtiful Rekk (4:20:36 PM): A small chuckle. "You sound ever so elated. Well, actually, that's the least of your problems."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:20:49 PM): He pointed at the small blonde one. "You. You're Mylene Batolli, right?"
Sinisquirrel (4:20:56 PM): "Y-yes! I am!"
Polk Kitsune (4:21:00 PM): Oh great...
Polk Kitsune (4:21:25 PM): The idiot pervert has MORE news for us.
Viewtiful Rekk (4:22:00 PM): "You're up for a promotion duel to Ra Yellow."
Sinisquirrel (4:22:33 PM): Suddenly, the girl was elated. "Yes!"
Polk Kitsune (4:23:06 PM): "Sweet!" He wrapped an arm around Mylene. "Congragulations, sweetheart!"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:23:43 PM): "And I'm assuming you're Meso?" He then pointed at the male of the two.
Polk Kitsune (4:24:17 PM): He blinked, and gave a nod. "Yeah, that's me... Wait, somehow, I doubt I'd be up for promotion too... Am I?"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:24:43 PM): "Nope. Expulsion!" Funny how he's grinning while he says this.
Sinisquirrel (4:25:30 PM): "... weeh!?" And, just as quickly as her spirits had risen, they plummeted again. "W-who against...?"
Polk Kitsune (4:25:36 PM): And even funnyer as Meso's face scrunched in a mix of panic, fear, and whatever emotion would fit a kick in a sensitive area.
Polk Kitsune (4:25:42 PM): "Ex... Expulsion?"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:26:56 PM): "Yuh huh. Apparently, the big wigs don't like how you've been actin', so they set you up an expulsion duel."
Polk Kitsune (4:28:31 PM): "Holy... Sh-..." He rubbed his forehead. "This can't be happening."
Polk Kitsune (4:28:44 PM): He looked back up at him. "Against who am I up against?"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:29:10 PM): "...I don't wanna pass judgment too quick, but kid, from what they said, you have been screwin' around a lot." Ichirou crossed his arms as he spoke, the grin all but gone.
Sinisquirrel (4:29:19 PM): "I-it's okay, Meso..." Mylene said, half nervously, half reassuringly. "I think you can do it..."
Polk Kitsune (4:31:55 PM): Well, it's not like I was in control or anything. Oh how he wanted to just answer that, but things were never that simple.
Polk Kitsune (4:31:58 PM): Witha small nervous chuckle, the boy responded. "Well... I... It's not... quite that easy... You know?"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:32:36 PM): "...Uh huh." Ichirou said with a skeptical look.
Sinisquirrel (4:33:20 PM): "All you gotta do is win, right?" She looked at Ichirou. "Then you can stay?"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:33:23 PM): "Anyway....your opponent for your duel is none other than me!" He said, jabbing a thumb at himself.
Viewtiful Rekk (4:33:29 PM): "And yeah. If he wins, he stays."
Polk Kitsune (4:34:10 PM): His eyes went wide as he looked up at him. "Against... you?"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:34:39 PM): "Yuh huh."
Sinisquirrel (4:34:41 PM): "Heeh!? What kinda fair is that!?"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:35:10 PM): Ichirou just kinda smirked. "It isn't fair, kid."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:35:26 PM): "That's the kinda lot a duelist draws. Things aren't always fair."
Polk Kitsune (4:35:28 PM): "It really... isn't. Woah..."
Polk Kitsune (4:36:18 PM): He shok his head quickly, snapping back to reality. "When? Where?"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:36:33 PM): "After her duel." He said and pointed at Mylene.
Sinisquirrel (4:37:02 PM): "... that soon...?" We only just started work on his new deck!
Viewtiful Rekk (4:37:48 PM): "Mmhm. So you got about two, maybe three hours to get ready."
Sinisquirrel (4:38:27 PM): Then I have some work to do, Mylene thought, her grip increasing on Meso's jacket.
Polk Kitsune (4:38:28 PM): "Tsk." Damndamndamndamn. This is way too soon! I barely started!
Polk Kitsune (4:39:47 PM): Meso gave an obvious gulp, then glared up at the new leader of the Osiris dorm. "I guess it's the way it is... Win, or lose everything..."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:41:11 PM): "..." He stared down at Meso for a long moment. "...Exactly right."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:40:18 PM): "...Anyway. That's all I got to tell you. Oh. And, you." He said, pointing at Mylene once more. "Your opponent is some kid named Jin Honjou, should get your deck ready too."
Sinisquirrel (4:42:13 PM): "..." She didn't say anything, but her mind and expression screamed: JIN!? He's in freakin' blue! What the heck is this!?
Polk Kitsune (4:43:08 PM): "... Talk about bloody missmatch."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:43:57 PM): "I don't make the rules kid. I just got the job like...20 minutes ago."
Sinisquirrel (4:44:01 PM): "Ahaha, NO PROBLEM!" Obviously, a problem, but like she would admit it. "It's just a duel! It's not like he'll exorcise me afterwards!"
Polk Kitsune (4:44:57 PM): "True... and if you win, you get to Ra!"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:45:05 PM): "See? That's the spirit! Or...something like that. Anyway. Bye." And with that, he leapt into the water, before swimming off in the direction from whence he came.
Sinisquirrel (4:45:28 PM): "... he could have just walked off... there's a path right there..."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:45:58 PM): "A true duelist makes obstacles out of the ordinary!" He shouts back as he swims off.
Sinisquirrel (4:46:45 PM): "... yeah, so does an idiot!" She shouted before turning her attention back to Meso. "... are you... going to be all right...?"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:47:32 PM): Miss Batolli is promptly hit in the back of the head with a small fish.
Polk Kitsune (4:47:32 PM): Maybe the teacher should have noticed the onimous Jaws theme starting as he had dived, for just as he reached the middle of the lake, a certain pink-haired girl leaped at the man. "RAWR!"
Viewtiful Rekk (4:48:10 PM): "OH GOD IT'S JAWSblrghghrbrghg" Thats the sound of one dorm head going under.
Sinisquirrel (4:48:34 PM): "..." Pause. The fish plunks off. "... let's walk and talk before I harm something."
Polk Kitsune (4:48:39 PM): Meso seemed stunned. Quite stunned for a moment. "I... I... I think so..."
Polk Kitsune (4:49:40 PM): He rubbed his forehead in thoughts. "You're right. Let's go. We've got a LOT of work to do, and not much tiem to do it."
Polk Kitsune (4:50:26 PM): He turned toward the lake, yelling. "MELISSA, WE'RE GOING BACK!" "AAAAWWWWW, BUT I JUST CAUGHT SOMETHING!"
Sinisquirrel (4:50:39 PM): "Mmh..." Mylene nodded sadly, picking up the picnic basket and Rush.
Polk Kitsune (4:52:25 PM): He helped her, pattign her back softly. "It'll be okay... I know you can do it."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:54:08 PM): Later, after Henry's duel with Casey and Ed's duel with Enishi...
Viewtiful Rekk (4:55:21 PM): "...Heh. I suppose it's my turn..." Jin Honjou said, a small smirk coming on to his face as he got up from the stands and began heading towards the dueling field.
Sinisquirrel (4:55:58 PM): Mylene, there presumably with Meso, took in a deep breath. "Well... here goes nothing..."
Myushu (4:56:47 PM): And... A certain Osiris was sitting in the stands. When she came? Who cares. "A'right!"
kwikkidus (4:57:01 PM): "KICK HIS BUTT, RIVAL! OR ELSE!"
Polk Kitsune (4:57:31 PM): Meso smiled at her, nodding. "You go kick his butt, dear... And..."
Sinisquirrel (4:57:39 PM): "S-shut up, rival! I'm having a moment!"
Myushu (4:57:44 PM): "You can do it, Jin-san!"
kwikkidus (4:58:01 PM): "No you can't! Crazy chicken girl's wrong!"
Polk Kitsune (4:58:22 PM): He started to dig thourgh his cards a moment, and pulled out a certain one. "There..."
Viewtiful Rekk (4:58:31 PM): "..." A small nod. "Thank you, Miss Ahiru." He said and smiled at the Osiris. "I'll do my best." And with that, he walked towards the arena, conveniently ignoring Ed.
Polk Kitsune (4:58:51 PM): He handed it to her. "This little bad boy should help you... Consider it a little good luck charm from me."
Myushu (4:58:59 PM): Insert a yo-yo being flung at Ed's head.
Myushu (4:59:11 PM): "I'M NOT CRAZY."
Sinisquirrel (4:59:16 PM): "Weeh...?" Mylene took the card, looking at it... and then looked back up at the tanned boy. "T-thank you! I'll do my best!" She gave him a quick hug before trotting to the arena.
kwikkidus (4:59:24 PM): Insert Ed ducking under it, before the Yoyo curves downward and smacks him on said head. "...Ow..."
Myushu (4:59:37 PM): She reels it back. "Hrmph!"
Polk Kitsune (5:00:02 PM): He hugged her tightly, givign her a quick kiss on the cheek. "You go, sweetie..."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:00:26 PM): Already in place by the time Mylene got there, Jin began calmly shuffling his deck, before glancing up at his opponent. "Hello, Miss Batolli."
Sinisquirrel (5:01:02 PM): "Uh, hi...!" Mylene shuffled her deck before sliding it in her disk. "You're not up for demotion, are you?"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:01:23 PM): He shook his head. "No, I don't believe so. Not yet, anyway..."
Sinisquirrel (5:01:54 PM): "Oh, that's good, then!" That means I don't have to hold back! "Let's start this!"
Myushu (5:02:34 PM): "Yay~" Ahiru watched with glee. "I get to see Jin duel again.. And not against some time-timer cheaterz."
Polk Kitsune (5:02:37 PM): Meso climbed up into the stands quickly, scootign on the seat near Ed. "She's goign to win... for sure..."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:02:53 PM): "Mm. Let's." He slipped his deck into his Duel Disk, and activated it.
kwikkidus (5:02:55 PM): "She'd better. Or else I've surpassed her as my rival!"
Sinisquirrel (5:03:00 PM): Doom, doom, doom doom...
Sinisquirrel (5:04:29 PM): "Looks like I'm up first!" Mylene called out, drawing six.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:04:56 PM): "Indeed it does." Jin said as he drew five.
Sinisquirrel (5:06:07 PM): Mylene glanced over her hand briefly, moving it around in the logical fitting order. "First," she stated, holding up a Spell Card. "I activate Final Countdown."
Polk Kitsune (5:06:43 PM): Meso gave a low whistle. "Quick start..."
Sinisquirrel (5:06:57 PM): Her Life Points dropped down by 2000. (6000) "You now have ten turns to defeat me before I'm automatically declared the winner."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:07:32 PM): Damn...I was hoping I'd get some preperations before she played that...
Viewtiful Rekk (5:07:44 PM): "Very well."
Sinisquirrel (5:08:40 PM): "I'll then play the Spell Card Nightmare's Steelcage." A large, steel cage formed over the field. "Neither you nor I can attack for two turns. To end, I place one defender and one card face-down."
Polk Kitsune (5:09:02 PM): "Ten turns... should be over soon."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:09:31 PM): "Draw."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:10:23 PM): "I play my Golden Sealing Chest!" A golden chest with the Eye of Horus on it appears outside of the cage. "I remove one card from my deck, and in two turns, it's added to my hand."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:11:36 PM): Voltanis the Adjucator appears, before sliding into the chest.
Sinisquirrel (5:12:20 PM): I see. A way to speed up the deck... that's fine. He still needs two turns.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:12:43 PM): "I will then play my Mystical Space Typhoon on your Nightmare's Steelcage!" A harsh wind begins tearing through the field, before tearing apart Mylene's cage completely.
Sinisquirrel (5:12:57 PM): "I'll chain! Threatening Roar!" A great behemoth rears up, roaring at Jin before it is sent to the Graveyard.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:13:58 PM): Jin seems undaunted by the roar. "Then I have no battle phase this turn. Very well."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:14:38 PM): "Next, I will play my Hex Channeler in attack mode!" A man shrouded entirely in a large grey cloak appears. He seems to be chanting a spell of some sort. (1800/1000)
Viewtiful Rekk (5:14:48 PM): "And with two reverse cards, I will end my turn."
Sinisquirrel (5:15:13 PM): "And just what does that do?"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:16:02 PM): "Once per turn, I may pay 1000 life points to activate the effect of a Counter Trap in my graveyard."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:16:12 PM): "Also, any costs that trap may have still apply."
Sinisquirrel (5:16:43 PM): "I see." Fortunately, you have none of those in the Graveyard... that I know of. "Draw!"
Sinisquirrel (5:17:57 PM): "I'll start my turn by Flip Summoning Swarm of Scarabs." The small, round bugs appeared in a hive.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:18:36 PM): "Kh..." Jin was familiar with the effects of the Scarabs.
Sinisquirrel (5:18:38 PM): (500/1000)
Sinisquirrel (5:18:59 PM): "Since there's only the one monster card to target... They'll go for your Hex Channeler!"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:19:46 PM): The Hex Channeler is destroyed, chanting his spell the whole time.
Sinisquirrel (5:20:30 PM): Now... Jin's deck is all about countering, so there's a high chance of there being some sort of attack negation... but, luckily for me, I can afford to wait.
Sinisquirrel (5:21:50 PM): "I flip my Scarabs back into face-down defense position, and summon another defender to the field." Two backings appeared in her monster card zone. "I then place one reverse, and end my turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:22:04 PM): "Draw."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:22:18 PM): "...I activate my Graceful Charity spell card!"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:23:12 PM): "This allows my to draw three cards, and then discard two..." Jin said as he slid three cards off of his deck and examined his cards crarefully.
Sinisquirrel (5:23:34 PM): Mylene nodded. She knew this effect... it was one of the more popular cards, especially among Obelisk students who could no longer use Pot of Greed.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:26:22 PM): "Alright...I'll discard...Meioryuu Vandalgion and Magic Drain..." He said, slipping the two cards into his grave.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:27:26 PM): "And then...I will activate the spell card Premature Burial!" (7200)
Viewtiful Rekk (5:29:47 PM): "I'll revive my Meioryuu Vandalgion!" The great big purple-y dragon of doom appears once again. (2800/2500)
Viewtiful Rekk (5:30:14 PM): "Normally...this would be vastly against my policies..."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:30:32 PM): "But unfortunately, your Final Countdown constricts my time frame considerabely."
Sinisquirrel (5:30:55 PM): "That would be the point," Mylene said matter-of-factly.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:30:59 PM): "Vandalgion, strike the face down Swarm of Scarabs! Dragon King Burst!"
Sinisquirrel (5:31:15 PM): The Scarabs are easily vanquished, exploding in a shower of pixels.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:31:32 PM): "And one defending monster. End turn."
Sinisquirrel (5:31:53 PM): "Draw!" Mylene picked up the top card of her deck, appraising her hand.
Sinisquirrel (5:33:16 PM): Hmmn. A face-down monster with a flip effect, perhaps? I'm not sure... but I can't allow that dragon to exist.
Sinisquirrel (5:33:57 PM): "I'll start my turn in the same way I did the last... by Flip Summoning my Swarm of Scarabs."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:35:05 PM): "...So you had two."
Sinisquirrel (5:35:14 PM): "I'm afraid I just can't let that big guy live." The Swarm, unless stopped, will immediately begin to devour Vandalgion.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:35:33 PM): "..." Jin says nothing as his dragon is wiped out.
Sinisquirrel (5:36:29 PM): "..." Mylene looks uncomfortable, and is unsure of exactly why. "I then flip them back face-down... and set another defender. End turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:36:45 PM): "...Draw."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:37:11 PM): The Golden Chest shatters, and Voltanis is moved into Jin's hand.
Polk Kitsune (5:37:26 PM): Melissa raised a fist in the air. "YOU GO, MY-CHAN!"
Sinisquirrel (5:38:10 PM): The blond sweatdrops slightly, waving sheepishly to Melissa before going back to watching Jin.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:38:21 PM): "Flip Summon - Cat of Ill Omen!" A black red-eyed cat with several golden objects adorning it appears, purring slightly. (500/300)
Sinisquirrel (5:38:57 PM): A flip effect! I knew it! ... but not altogether entirely dangerous... he just gets a Trap Card.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:39:34 PM): "This monster's flip..ef....ah..ah.." Jin suddenly sneezes loudly, before bringing his finger to rub his nose, sniffing lightly.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:40:06 PM): "...Sorry. My monster's effect allows me to move a trap card to the top of my deck..." He removes his deck from the slot, and begins searching.
Sinisquirrel (5:40:04 PM): "B-bless you," Mylene says, surprised. "You're... allergic?"
Viewtiful Rekk (5:40:59 PM): "...Yes. It...comes and goes." He shows Trap Jammer, before placing it on his deck.
Sinisquirrel (5:41:17 PM): "I see..." Despite it's holographic nature? Gee.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:41:47 PM): "Then...I will place one reverse card and end my turn."
Sinisquirrel (5:42:04 PM): "Draw!"
Sinisquirrel (5:44:13 PM): That back field's filling up pretty quickly. Too bad I haven't got a Locust yet. "First, I Flip Summon my Stealth Bird!" A silvery-blue winged beast appears. (700/1700)
Viewtiful Rekk (5:44:44 PM): Stealth Bird is suddenly hit by a small explosion right back into Mylene's hand.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:44:49 PM): "Counter Trap - Forced Back."
Sinisquirrel (5:45:15 PM): "Gweh!" The bird is brought back to the girl's hand.
Sinisquirrel (5:47:27 PM): "Doesn't matter. I'll just flip up my Scarabs, then!" The beetles appear once more.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:47:47 PM): Jin remains stoic as his cat is devoured.
Sinisquirrel (5:48:23 PM): Talk about one way to get rid of your allergies. "I then flip them back down... and set another defender."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:48:43 PM): "Is that all?"
Sinisquirrel (5:49:08 PM): "'Fraid not. I'll play Nightmare's Steelcage." Welcome the cage, part deux.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:49:25 PM): "I believe not. Counter Trap - Magic Drain."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:49:44 PM): "You may play your Steelcage....but if you do, you must discard one other spell card from your hand."
Sinisquirrel (5:50:07 PM): "Fine. I'll just discard my second copy of Final Countdown." The girl showed the card to her opponent before slipping it into her Graveyard.
Sinisquirrel (5:50:51 PM): "Now it's your turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:51:08 PM): Figured.... "I draw."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:51:49 PM): "...One reverse card. End turn."
Sinisquirrel (5:52:21 PM): Could it be she was actually doing all right? "Draw!" Mylene picked up the top card of her deck.
Sinisquirrel (5:53:12 PM): No real reason to bring this out now, she thought.
Sinisquirrel (5:54:38 PM): "Let's try this again-- Flip Summon, Stealth Bird!" The hawk-like apparition appeared again.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:55:33 PM): Jin is succiently flipped the bird. (6200)
Sinisquirrel (5:56:45 PM): The fowl only becomes visible again as it reappears on Mylene's side of the field. "No reason to flip the other, since y'know what it is... I'll flip down Stealth Bird and end my turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:57:04 PM): "Draw..."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:58:08 PM): "....I pass my turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (5:58:23 PM): Ten turns left to turn this around...
Sinisquirrel (5:58:34 PM): "A... ah..." Surprised and feeling humbled for some reason, Mylene drew after her Nightmare's Steelcage faded from the field.
Sinisquirrel (5:59:24 PM): "Stealth Bird, reappear!" Rinse and repeat the petite prodigy's last turn.
Viewtiful Rekk (5:59:44 PM): (5200)
Sinisquirrel (6:00:21 PM): "I flip it back face-down when it returns..." It does its thing once more, becoming blank. "I'll then set one defender, and end my turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:01:44 PM): "Draw."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:03:26 PM): "I play Bountiful Artemis in attack mode!" A mechanical angel with two large wings and a billowing cape appears. (1600/1700)
Viewtiful Rekk (6:04:10 PM): "Strike the face down Scarabs!" The angel crafts a ball of light in its hands before flinging it at the defending monster.
Sinisquirrel (6:04:29 PM): Which shatters easily, just as the first copy did.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:04:58 PM): "End turn."
Sinisquirrel (6:05:11 PM): "Draw."
Sinisquirrel (6:06:14 PM): "I'll have my Stealth Bird appear again," Mylene said simply.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:08:05 PM): (4200)
Sinisquirrel (6:08:42 PM): "And, to follow..." Mylene's voice suddenly dropped, as she felt rather sheepish. "I Flip Summon Swarm of Scarabs..."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:09:31 PM): "...Kh..." At least I know this is her third copy....
Sinisquirrel (6:10:51 PM): "I'll flip both of my monsters back face-down, set a new defender... and end my turn." Jin's time is growing closer as a thirteenth ball of fire appears around the ring.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:11:06 PM): "Draw..."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:11:41 PM): "...I'll summon a second copy of Bountiful Artemis..." (1600/1700) "And strike your final Swarm of Scarabs!"
Polk Kitsune (6:11:58 PM): Meso looked up with a smirk. Going on well! Mylene doesn't even need to worry!
Sinisquirrel (6:12:04 PM): They die easily, their presence finally gone from this duel.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:12:17 PM): Unless she has Pot of Avarice.... "End turn."
Sinisquirrel (6:12:28 PM): "Draw!"
Sinisquirrel (6:13:16 PM): "You're probably sick of hearing this, but... I Flip Summon Stealth Bird."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:14:31 PM): "It's how the game is played." He says simply. (3200)
Sinisquirrel (6:15:07 PM): "I flip it back down, and then flip my new defender, Des Lacooda!" The zombified camel appears, allowing Mylene to draw another card from her deck.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:16:04 PM): "Alright."
Sinisquirrel (6:16:49 PM): She nods to herself, content with the draw. "I'll then tribute my Des Lacooda to set another defender, and end my turn with a reverse card."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:17:13 PM): "..." Jin frowns. It has to be.... "Draw."
Sinisquirrel (6:17:57 PM): He's seen me play, so he probably knows what it is... but it's okay. We've only got five turns left before this can be over with... less than that if he never kills Stealth Bird. I think.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:19:16 PM): "....One reverse card. End turn."
Sinisquirrel (6:19:48 PM): Or maybe I miscalculated... Mylene mentally shakes her head before announcing "Draw," and bringing a new card to her hand.
Sinisquirrel (6:20:50 PM): "Stealth Bird, again for a thousand!" The feathered monster appears again for another strike.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:21:55 PM): "Sorry, but your Bird has flown its last flight. Counter Trap - Divine Wrath!"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:22:24 PM): Jin discards one card from his hand...and lightning shoots from the sky and rams into the Bird before it can hit Jin.
Sinisquirrel (6:22:35 PM): Mylene cries out as her bird falls from the sky.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:22:56 PM): "And thanks to Bountiful Artemis's effect, I may draw once..." He slides a card off his deck.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:23:24 PM): "And then...I may sacrifice Bountiful Artemis!" Artemis dissapears as Jin slaps a card on to his Duel Disk. "Come forth - VOLTANIS THE ADJUCATOR!"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:24:42 PM): Ice begins shooting from the ground around Jin's side of the field...and in a large purple flash, the giver of judgment appears, staff in hand. (2800/1400)
Sinisquirrel (6:24:38 PM): Mylene feels flustered as Voltanis appears.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:24:57 PM): "...I will destroy your face down Guardian Sphinx."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:25:33 PM): Voltanis spins his staff a few times, before bringing it crashing down on to Mylene's defending monster.
Sinisquirrel (6:25:31 PM): "Knew it," she said, feeling color rise to her cheeks as one of her favorites was so easily offed.
Polk Kitsune (6:25:46 PM): MEso bit his lower lip. "This might be troublesome..."
Sinisquirrel (6:26:36 PM): "Well, then... that doesn't leave me with much to do, does it?" She said with a wry smile. "End turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:26:46 PM): "Well then...draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:28:25 PM): "...Three turns to go, Miss Batolli....this will be the beginning of my final assault!"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:28:53 PM): "Voltanis, direct attack!" He points at the opposing player as his monster leaps forward to strike.
Sinisquirrel (6:29:36 PM): Mylene makes some fast and furious calculations... and decides to take the attack, falling back. (3200)
Sinisquirrel (6:31:28 PM): "Nnhk..." She gets back up, brushing herself off.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:31:43 PM): "...Two reverse cards. End turn."
Sinisquirrel (6:31:53 PM): He's really putting it all down...
Polk Kitsune (6:32:14 PM): "You can do it, Mylene!"
Sinisquirrel (6:32:21 PM): But then, he has to. After my turn, he HAS to finish me off, or...
Sinisquirrel (6:32:38 PM): Mylene looks at Meso, giving a lopsided smile before drawing. "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:32:53 PM): "..." A small smirk. "Look at that, Miss Batolli. Our scores are the same."
Polk Kitsune (6:32:54 PM): "Only one more turn!"
Sinisquirrel (6:33:49 PM): Mylene's look softens as she draws her card. "Yes, they are, aren't they?"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:34:17 PM): "Well, at this point, just let me say..."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:34:30 PM): "No matter the result, this duel has been enjoyable for me."
Sinisquirrel (6:34:55 PM): "Really? For me, too! S'alot better than the last one I was in."
Sinisquirrel (6:35:35 PM): "I don't mind... being stuck in Red for a bit longer. Even if it gives my rival something to gloat over." After she says this, she glares at said rival in the stands.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:35:33 PM): "I can only hope any rate. It's your turn."
Sinisquirrel (6:35:56 PM): "Right." Mylene nods. "I set one monster in face-down Defense Position... and end my turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:36:06 PM): "...Draw."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:36:34 PM): "...I activate my trap card! Ring of Destruction!"
Sinisquirrel (6:37:28 PM): "What!? No!" Mylene desperately makes a motion as a Trap Card of her own pops up. "Solemn Judgment!" (1600)
Viewtiful Rekk (6:37:43 PM): A silver collar attatched to Voltanis's neck, several grenades appearing on it....before they fizzle out.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:50:56 PM): "So that doesn't work then." Jin holds up the last card in his hand.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:50:57 PM): "Summon Thief of the Shadows in attack mode." A man shrouded in a black coat with a golden hook in place of one of his hands appears. (1700/1200)
Sinisquirrel (6:51:43 PM): "Phew..." Mylene lets out a breath. She'd been saving that card for a reason. "But... what's that again?"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:52:14 PM): "Whenever a Counter Trap is activated, you randomly discard one card from your hand. But...that's rather inconsiquential right now."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:52:43 PM): "Voltanis! Strike her defense!" The Adjucator leaps forward and brings its staff down on the defending monster.
Sinisquirrel (6:53:55 PM): The monster in question begins to beep rapidly as Voltanis approaches... and then flips over, blowing up in the monster's face. Thank you, Meso... for your... "Cyber Jar!"
Viewtiful Rekk (6:54:27 PM): "What...?" Jin blinks. He had never seen that card during that tag-duel...
Polk Kitsune (6:55:53 PM): Meso smirked. Good... Too close...
Sinisquirrel (6:55:55 PM): Seeing his confusion, Mylene had to confess. "I... was given that card as a gift... by my best friend, who supports me in everything I do..."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:56:20 PM): "....I see." Jin nods, before casting a glance at the audience, and at Meso.
Sinisquirrel (6:56:47 PM): "It's a rotten way to repay you for helping us, I guess... I'll... f-find some way to make it up to you."
Viewtiful Rekk (6:57:34 PM): "Like I's merely the way the game is played. Let's merely see what fate holds for us, shall we?" Both of Jin's monsters are wiped out by the mechanical jar.
Sinisquirrel (6:57:55 PM): "Mmn." Mylene nods as the jar disappears, awaiting to see what Jin comes up with.
Viewtiful Rekk (6:59:12 PM): "..." Jin shows his cards: Herald of Red Light, Herald of Blue Light, Cursed Seal of the Forbidden Spell, Trap Jammer, Solemn Judgment
Viewtiful Rekk (6:59:40 PM): "Combined, Heralds of Red and Blue Light only have 1000 attack points."
Sinisquirrel (6:59:57 PM): "A-ahh..."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:01:21 PM): "....I'll place them both in attack mode, I suppose." The red and blue spheres appear, shinig brightly. (500/800) (500/800)
Sinisquirrel (7:02:22 PM): Mylene shows her hand: Nightmare's Steelcage, Messenger of Peace, Wave-Motion Cannon, Zolga, and Swarm of Locusts.
Sinisquirrel (7:02:31 PM): She places the last two in face-down Defense Position.
Viewtiful Rekk (7:03:02 PM): "...I end my turn."
Sinisquirrel (7:03:38 PM): With that admission, the last flame of Final Countdown appears directly behind Jin. The field is covered by a dark cloud, from which a monster appears... ending the duel.
Myushu (7:04:15 PM): "...Nrm."
BreakneckChao (7:04:33 PM): "...Whoa..."
BreakneckChao (7:04:43 PM): Henry walked in the arena just in time to see the big finale.
Viewtiful Rekk (7:04:58 PM): "..." Jin walks across the field...and extends a hand out to Mylene.
Polk Kitsune (7:05:08 PM): "YAAAAAYYY! You go Mylene!"
Viewtiful Rekk (7:05:11 PM): "Good game, Miss Batolli."
Sinisquirrel (7:05:18 PM): As the cloud dissipates (along with the rest of the field), Mylene steps up to Jin... and shakes his hand. "Yes! Thank you!"
Polk Kitsune (7:05:30 PM): "I KNEW YOU COULD DO IT!"
Myushu (7:05:51 PM): "Tch! Stupd Final Countdown.." she mutters with a frown.
Sinisquirrel (7:06:16 PM): "Next time, though... if there is one... It'll be all my deck, though."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:06:54 PM): He nods. "Of course. And expect my deck to be stronger as well. I believe I learned a few things about that duel."
Sinisquirrel (7:08:09 PM): She lets his hand go, nodding emphatically. "Yeah? Yeah! Okay!" She then turns to face her friends in the audience... and finally has that nervous breakdown she's been wanting. Thud.
Viewtiful Rekk (7:08:21 PM): "...." Blink.
Myushu (7:08:28 PM): "..Eh." o.o
BreakneckChao (7:08:45 PM): "Oh crap!"
Polk Kitsune (7:08:52 PM): Meso blinked as he saw her fall. "MYLENE!" And in an instant, had leaped down, and was runnign to her side.
Sinisquirrel (7:09:33 PM): She's fine, of course... just suffering what feels like the typical Osiris "Holy crap, I just beat a Blue" feeling.
Sinisquirrel (7:08:46 PM): Twitch. "Eheheh... s-see you in Yellow, p-punk rival... no blue, though, please!"
Myushu (7:10:09 PM): "..Nrrrm. People are heading outta the Osiris dorms.." she looks down at her uniform, "I oughta.. prep up and get out, too." More muttering!
BreakneckChao (7:10:32 PM): "So... Mylene made it too."
BreakneckChao (7:10:38 PM): "Good for her." Nod.
Sinisquirrel (7:10:41 PM): "Meso... i-if it wasn't for you... your card...! Awuun!" She promptly buries her head into Meso's chest.
Polk Kitsune (7:10:42 PM): The boy laughed, and hugged the new Ra Yellow in his arms. "Hahahahahahaha! Congragulations, Mylene!"
Polk Kitsune (7:10:50 PM): "You did it!"
Sinisquirrel (7:11:18 PM): "... and now you have to do it!" She springs up, pointing dramatically at Meso. "Don't you dare lose to that pervert!"
Polk Kitsune (7:12:37 PM): His laugh toned down into a small laughter... and finally into a nervous chuckle.
Polk Kitsune (7:12:46 PM): "I... I... I can do it, yeah!"
Polk Kitsune (7:12:59 PM): "He's just a pro, afterall...
Polk Kitsune (7:14:00 PM): He gulped nervously. I... I think I can...
Viewtiful Rekk (7:14:38 PM): "..." Jin blinks. "Er...are going for a promotion as well, Meso...?"
Sinisquirrel (7:14:40 PM): "You can! We worked on that deck together, and I know you can..."
Polk Kitsune (7:15:00 PM): Meso gulped. "No... Expulsion duel..."
Sinisquirrel (7:15:03 PM): Speaking of which... Mylene searched out the Cyber Jar, handing it over to Meso. "Here... thank you... for lending me your power."
Polk Kitsune (7:15:39 PM): Meso took the card back, a smile breaking again. "It's my pleasure... I'm glad it helped."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:16:07 PM): "...Expulsion..?" He blinks....but then realizes. "..Ah. You're being blamed for what Munos did..."
Sinisquirrel (7:16:41 PM): "Y-yeah... it sucks... but s'not like they're gonna believe it... we don't really have any proof."
Polk Kitsune (7:16:55 PM): Meso looked down, a bit in a slump. "Yeah... I am..." He gave a nervous chuckle. "Without proof... I can't do a thing to prove otherwise..."
Polk Kitsune (7:17:07 PM): "It was my body..."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:18:03 PM): "... I see."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:18:24 PM): "How many trap cards does your new deck have? Or Dark-attribute monsters?"
Polk Kitsune (7:19:27 PM): Meso placed a card back in his new deck. "Traps? About six... And one Dark-atribute monster." He raised an eyebrow. "Why?"
Viewtiful Rekk (7:22:14 PM): "...I see. Well...I don't know if this will assist you, but..." He pulls out his deck, and searches for a moment, before grabbing a specific card. He then holds it out to Meso.
Sinisquirrel (7:23:55 PM): "E-eeh!?" Jin was helping out? How totally awesome was that? Mylene wanted to help, too, but upon searching her deck... found nothing that would really do Meso much good. "... ghh."
Polk Kitsune (7:24:37 PM): He blinked, and took the card, looking at it for a moment, and with a nod, slipped it in. "Thanks. Anything helps."
Sinisquirrel (7:25:24 PM): "I... I guess we just wait, now..." I'll cheer in the stands! That'll help! ... I hope!
Viewtiful Rekk (7:25:49 PM): He nods. "I wish you luck."
Polk Kitsune (7:26:08 PM): He gives a nod. "Thanks... I'll need it."
Viewtiful Rekk (7:55:34 PM): Ichirou, who had been reamining relatively silent up until this point, smirks and gets up from his seat. Well...I've sat down long enough, I think...
Viewtiful Rekk (7:58:45 PM): "..." Jin looks at Meso. "...Do not lose, Meso." He says simply, and heads back into the stands as Ichirou makes his way to the arena.
Polk Kitsune (7:59:26 PM): He blinked, lookin back at Jin a moment... and gave a nod. "I won't..."
Sinisquirrel (7:56:08 PM): With another quick hug to Meso, and a whisper of "good luck," Mylene ran up to the stands after Jin.
Polk Kitsune (7:56:43 PM): Meso took a deep breath, holding Mylene tightly as he could... And finally let go.
Polk Kitsune (7:57:33 PM): And here I am... Alone... Against all odds... It's been a long, long time. He stood up straight, and walked toward the ring, taking his position.
Viewtiful Rekk (8:00:12 PM): "So, kiddo, ready to get this thing started?!" Ichirou asks with a smirk as his Duel Disk activates.
Polk Kitsune (8:01:02 PM): He took a deep breath as he slid his deck in. "... As ready as I'll ever be... Sir."
Sinisquirrel (8:02:35 PM): Good, being polite... that'll help... I hope! Mylene quietly watches in the stands, fingers crossed.
Viewtiful Rekk (8:03:05 PM): "Please. Don't call me sir. It makes me feel old."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:03:15 PM): "If you gotta be respectful, 'sensei' will do."
Polk Kitsune (8:03:38 PM): Melissa held her hands to throw her voice out. "GET HIM, ONII-CHAN!"
Polk Kitsune (8:04:15 PM): Meso gave a small snerk. "As you say, sensei."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:04:22 PM): Ichirou draws five. "Looks like you're first."
Polk Kitsune (8:04:30 PM): "But since my whole future turns on this duel... I'll start!"
Polk Kitsune (8:04:37 PM): "Draw!"
Polk Kitsune (8:05:44 PM): He looked at his hand. "... Not too good." He smirked. "But at least you're here."
Polk Kitsune (8:06:22 PM): "I'll set one defender, and one facedown card." The cards apeared on the field. "That ends my turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:06:45 PM): "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (8:06:57 PM): "...I'll start with my Magical Mallet spell."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:07:56 PM): "I'll take three cards from my hand, shuffle..." He then slides three cards off of his deck.
Polk Kitsune (8:08:26 PM): Meso gave a nod. "Useful card... when you're trying to make combos."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:08:30 PM): A smirk. "Masked Dragon, in attack mode!" A red and white dragon appeares and roars. (1400/1100)
Viewtiful Rekk (8:08:33 PM): "Attack his defense!"
Polk Kitsune (8:09:28 PM): Meso clenches his teeth as the defence was revealed, a small, two feet tall red battery with arms and a head, beign squished under the creature.
Polk Kitsune (8:09:36 PM): "Batteryman AA..." (0/1000)
Viewtiful Rekk (8:10:39 PM): "Heh. Batteries."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:10:48 PM): "This should be interesting. One reverse card. End turn."
Polk Kitsune (8:11:06 PM): "Right... Draw!"
Polk Kitsune (8:12:04 PM): Damn damn damn... Not good... He looked at his cards carefully.
Polk Kitsune (8:12:25 PM): "I'll set one card facedown... That's all for me."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:12:30 PM): "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (8:13:24 PM): "Summon Dol Dora!" A large purple dragon with two heads appears and lets out a roar. (1500/1200)
Polk Kitsune (8:13:39 PM): Meso whinced inwardly.
Viewtiful Rekk (8:13:55 PM): "Dragons! Double direct attacks!" Both dragons rear back their heads and shoot bursts of flame at Meso.
Polk Kitsune (8:15:20 PM): Meso covered his face as the flames engulfed him. As the fire disapeared, he gave a cough. (5100)
Viewtiful Rekk (8:17:35 PM): "One reverse card. Turn end."
Sinisquirrel (8:17:40 PM): "Aiieh..." Mylene shook her head. He could still pull out of it! Yes! Mylene clenched her fist and cheered with Meso's sister.
Polk Kitsune (8:17:59 PM): He gave a nod, takign a deep breath. "Good... Draw!"
Polk Kitsune (8:18:34 PM): He looked at his new card, and smirked. "Oh my... goodness..."
Polk Kitsune (8:19:14 PM): He looked back at Ichirou with a smirk. "Interesting, indeed..."
Polk Kitsune (8:20:57 PM): The boy placed a card in the duel disk. "First, I'll start with a magic card... Battery Charger!"
Viewtiful Rekk (8:21:24 PM): "..Hm...lemme guess."
Polk Kitsune (8:21:27 PM): "By paying five hundred lifepoints, I can special summon a Batteryman from my graveyard to the field." (4600)
Viewtiful Rekk (8:21:34 PM): "AA into Inferno Reckless?"
Polk Kitsune (8:22:25 PM): He smirked, pressing a button as the red batteryman apeared. "You are a pro, yes... Inferno Reckless Summon."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:23:27 PM): "Heh, not bad kid..."
Polk Kitsune (8:23:33 PM): "With my summon, I can special summon as many Batteryman AA from my deck, hand or graveyard as I can." He mentionned as two more batteries apeared.
Polk Kitsune (8:23:46 PM): "Of course, you get to do the same with one of your monsters..."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:23:54 PM): He points at his Masked Dragon. "I'll summon two more copies of Masked Dragon."
Polk Kitsune (8:24:36 PM): He gave a nod. "Good...And since you know the game so much... Batterymen AA, contact!"
Viewtiful Rekk (8:25:06 PM): Two more of the red dragons appear in defense mode. (1400/1100)
Polk Kitsune (8:26:01 PM): As the two batteryman apeared, the three linked hands, thunder coursing right around their arms and joints, their attack power increasing steadilly.
Polk Kitsune (8:26:39 PM): "One thousand for each batteryman AA on the field... Three thousand attack points for all Batterymen AA." (3000/0)
Viewtiful Rekk (8:27:21 PM): A smirk. "Good old batterymen. Always good for OTKs."
Sinisquirrel (8:27:32 PM): "Yaay, batteries!" Duh, she was a mechanic... of course she'd be excited about that.
Polk Kitsune (8:27:41 PM): "And for my next facedown... I'll activate a deadly little magic card of mine. Lightning Vortex!"
Viewtiful Rekk (8:28:08 PM): "So that's his new deck..." Jin says, smirking.
Viewtiful Rekk (8:28:28 PM): Ichirou just keeps smirking as his monsters are wiped out.
Polk Kitsune (8:28:34 PM): "By tossing one card to the graveyard... I get to destroy all your faceup monsters on the field!"
Polk Kitsune (8:29:34 PM): "One - Turn - Kill.... Batterymen AA, attack directly! TRIPLE BATTERY BLITZ, MAXIMUM VOLTAGE!"
Viewtiful Rekk (8:29:40 PM): "Trap Card!"
Viewtiful Rekk (8:29:44 PM): "A Hero Emerges!"
Viewtiful Rekk (8:29:59 PM): Ichirou holds up his two card hand. "Time to pick, kiddo."
Polk Kitsune (8:30:07 PM): Meso's face twitched. "A Hero... Emerges... Uh oh..."
Polk Kitsune (8:30:41 PM): Meso eyed the two cards carefully. "One dooms me... One might save me... or both."
Polk Kitsune (8:31:08 PM): He closed his eyes a moment. Can't mess this up...
Sinisquirrel (8:31:17 PM): "Still, though," Mylene mutters. "That'd have to be one heckuva powerful card... they're all at 3000."
Polk Kitsune (8:31:29 PM): "... I'll pick... The card on the right!"
Viewtiful Rekk (8:32:04 PM): Ichirou smirks. "Troop Dragon, defense mode."
Polk Kitsune (8:32:18 PM): Meso snapped his fingers. "Dammit..."
Polk Kitsune (8:32:32 PM): "One turn..."
Sinisquirrel (8:32:44 PM): "Awwuh... he'll just use that to get more stupid tiny dragons!"
Polk Kitsune (8:32:49 PM): "Batteryman AA, destroy those troops!"
Viewtiful Rekk (8:32:50 PM): A small green dragon wearing armor appears in front of Ichirou. (700/800)
Viewtiful Rekk (8:33:03 PM): One is destroyed...then another...then another.
Polk Kitsune (8:33:16 PM): And the boy destroyed them all, one after another.
Polk Kitsune (8:33:24 PM): "There! Nothing left..."
Polk Kitsune (8:33:33 PM): He took a deep breath. "End turn..."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:33:48 PM): "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (8:34:03 PM): "Oh, and at the end phase..." Dol Dora appears again. (1000/1000)
Viewtiful Rekk (8:34:21 PM): "I'll tribute Dol Dora...and play my Kaiser Glider!"
Polk Kitsune (8:34:37 PM): Meso blinked a moment. "Kaiser Glider..."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:34:47 PM): A flaming golden dragon appears and lets out a loud roar. (2400/2200)
Viewtiful Rekk (8:34:54 PM): "Also...the spell card, Dragon's Mirror!"
Polk Kitsune (8:35:16 PM): Meso smirked. "Good thing it's weaker than my..." He blinked a bit. "Huh?"
Viewtiful Rekk (8:35:37 PM): Three Troop Dragons, Dol Dora, and Masked Dragon appear on Ichirou's field, as spirits.
Viewtiful Rekk (8:36:11 PM): "I remove these five call forth....the ULTIMATE, F.G.D.!"
Polk Kitsune (8:36:32 PM): Meso gulped as he saw the beast. "Woah..."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:36:53 PM): A massive five-headed dragon appears, letting out five roars that shakes the arena. (5000/5000)
Sinisquirrel (8:37:05 PM): "Awwuh... how unfair is that!?"
Viewtiful Rekk (8:37:10 PM): He points at one of the Batterymen. "GO! Five-Headed Burst!"
Viewtiful Rekk (8:37:36 PM): Jin grimaces. "He turned Meso's Inferno Reckless Summon against him in just one move....he is a pro..."
Polk Kitsune (8:37:48 PM): "GHK!" He covered his face as the batery was blasted to bits.
Polk Kitsune (8:38:12 PM): And with one less battery, the two other's attack points lowered down to 2000.
Viewtiful Rekk (8:38:39 PM): "Kaiser Glider, strike!" The flaming bird takes in a breath and shoots a stream of flame at one of the weakened batteries.
Polk Kitsune (8:40:23 PM): Meso whinced, and shook his head as he looked at the remaining battery facing the two giants.
Viewtiful Rekk (8:40:31 PM): "...Gotta say, kid."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:40:42 PM): "I was hoping you'd be able to put up more of a fight then this."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:41:17 PM): "The other staff...they said even if you screw around, you're a good duelist."
Polk Kitsune (8:41:27 PM): Meso looked back at the man... Then down. Damn... Too soon. I should've worked harder on this deck...
Viewtiful Rekk (8:41:43 PM): "Lemme tell you how this'll go."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:42:01 PM): "You'll shift Batteryman AA to defense mode. Then you'll set a defender. Probably Batteryman D."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:42:35 PM): "To that....reverse card, open!" A trap on Ichirou's field activates. "Continuous Trap. Dragon's Rage."
Polk Kitsune (8:42:42 PM): Meso gulped.
Viewtiful Rekk (8:43:05 PM): "This gives all of my Dragons the ability of Trample."
Polk Kitsune (8:43:21 PM): "Which lets you drive right through my defense, and to my lifepoints."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:43:27 PM): "...So come up with something, or you're going to be leaving this academy. I end my turn."
Polk Kitsune (8:43:29 PM): "Familiar with it..."
Polk Kitsune (8:44:29 PM): He squeezed his hand tightly, biting his lower lip. "I... I'll try..." He shook his head. "No...I will."
Polk Kitsune (8:44:40 PM): He placed a hand on his deck, and pulled. "Draw!"
Sinisquirrel (8:46:47 PM): "Meso..." D-darn it! There should have been something I could have done...!
Viewtiful Rekk (8:47:40 PM): "Kh..." Jin narrows his glance. "...If only there were some way to prove it was Munos...this duel wouldn't even matter..." In his opinion...didn't look too hot for Meso at this point.
Polk Kitsune (8:47:53 PM): Meso took a deep breath. "If I remember your dragon... It can only die by light..." He placed a card in his disk. "Here's a few more voltage. A few billions. Lighning Vortex!"
kwikkidus (8:48:14 PM): "...But you can't prove it's munos without showing off the duel I had in the shadow realm, and we don't have any record of that..."
Sinisquirrel (8:48:30 PM): "Gah! Rival! When did you come back?"
kwikkidus (8:48:48 PM): "I've been here the whole time. I just fell asleep 'cause your match was so BORING."
Polk Kitsune (8:48:50 PM): "I'll toss another card in the graveyard... And your two monsters will die."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:48:53 PM): "....Heh." Ichirou's field is wiped clean again.
BreakneckChao (8:48:58 PM): "Ed! There you are!
BreakneckChao (8:49:14 PM): "The food is getting cold!" henry holds up two bags in his hands.
kwikkidus (8:49:26 PM)
: "...Ahh! Thanks!" He grabs some food!
Sinisquirrel (8:49:30 PM): "B-boring!? I... If I weren't so worried about Meso, I'd wring your scrawny neck!"
Viewtiful Rekk (8:49:31 PM): "...." He glances at Ed. "I did write a report on it though...for my family."
Polk Kitsune (8:49:35 PM): Melissa's eyes went wide, as she saw Ed. "CUTIE!" Cue the glomping.
Polk Kitsune (8:50:13 PM): Meso took a deep breath. "Time for the first blows. I summon a dragon of my own. Mirage Dragon." (1600/600)
Viewtiful Rekk (8:50:15 PM): "...." Blink.
Polk Kitsune (8:50:46 PM): "And now, Batteryman AA, Mirage Dragon, Direct attack!"
kwikkidus (8:51:02 PM): "REEEH?!" Ed freaks out, and starts trying to escape the hugs.
Viewtiful Rekk (8:51:25 PM): Ichirou is hit head-on. (5400)
Sinisquirrel (8:51:28 PM): "Hmph. Stupid rival." Mylene turns back to the duel. "Yaay!"
Polk Kitsune (8:51:37 PM): Melissa giggled hapilly, and held on tightly with a happy smile on. "Cutiecutiecutiecutiecutiiiieeee!"
BreakneckChao (8:51:52 PM): "...Heheh..."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:52:07 PM): "So. You hit me." He smirks.
Viewtiful Rekk (8:52:15 PM): "But I'm far from done."
Polk Kitsune (8:52:41 PM): Meso sighed. Without a hand... I doubt he'd be able to summon anything big enough to whipe my lifepoints out. He's already used a mirror... And I've got a bit of backup.
kwikkidus (8:52:43 PM): "...Why me?" Cue the overdramatic tears.
BreakneckChao (8:52:49 PM): "Oh, hey. Mylene."
BreakneckChao (8:53:01 PM): "I saw you won your duel. Congratulations!"
BreakneckChao (8:53:03 PM): Henry smiled.
Viewtiful Rekk (8:53:14 PM): "So, y'done, kid?"
Sinisquirrel (8:53:23 PM): "E-eh? Thank you!" Mylene smiled, blushing slightly at the compliment.
Polk Kitsune (8:53:26 PM): "I know... And I'm not relaxing either. I'm waaayyy too close to let up."
Polk Kitsune (8:53:34 PM): "But yes, sensei. I end my turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:53:40 PM): "Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (8:53:53 PM): "...Activate Premature Burial!"
Polk Kitsune (8:53:59 PM): "Because you're sooo CUTE~<3" Cue the quick kiss on the cheek.
kwikkidus (8:54:10 PM): "...Reeeh? I'm not... cute..."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:54:23 PM): (4600) "Come back, Kaiser Glider!" The golden flaming dragon appears again. (2400/2200)
Polk Kitsune (8:54:33 PM): Meso's eyes went wide. "No... Damn..."
>Viewtiful Rekk (8:54:58 PM): "Attack the Mirage Dragon!"
BreakneckChao (8:55:42 PM): Henry watched as Ed was mobbed by the girl.
Polk Kitsune (8:55:50 PM): Meso blinked, and shielded his eyes as the dragon was whiped out by the flames. (900)
BreakneckChao (8:55:56 PM): "I think she begs to differ, buddy." Henry laughed.
Viewtiful Rekk (8:56:07 PM): "Go."
Sinisquirrel (8:56:32 PM): "I'd beg to differ with 'er," Mylene muttered, wondering about Melissa's choices in 'cute.'
Polk Kitsune (8:56:32 PM): "Yes you aaaarrreeee!" She snuggled hapilly. "And you're a savior too! Along with My-chan!"
BreakneckChao (8:56:40 PM): "And there's not a trap card in the world that can help you."
kwikkidus (8:57:08 PM)
: "...Ahh... well... I guess... but...Mfff..." He blushes, shaking his head. "You... took Dori-chan... andnow you're glomping me... Reeh?"
Sinisquirrel (8:57:13 PM): "Stupid Premature Burial..." A moue from the blonde.
Polk Kitsune (8:57:17 PM): Meso took a deep breath. "Okay... Draw!"
Viewtiful Rekk (8:57:31 PM): "..." Am I the only one here who can act serious.... Jin thinks almost bitterly as he watches the duel.
BreakneckChao (8:57:57 PM): Henry leaned over the rail, turning his attention to the duel.
Sinisquirrel (8:58:29 PM): "Too distracting here... mmff."
Polk Kitsune (8:58:41 PM): "But I was posessed!" She blinked. "Don't you remember?"
kwikkidus (8:59:14 PM): "...But it was still your body that did it..."
Polk Kitsune (8:59:17 PM): "Just like that old guy wrote in the book about Onii-chan!"
BreakneckChao (8:59:19 PM): "Here." henry pulled two earphones and a small mp3 player from his pocket, placing the earphones over Mylene's head.
BreakneckChao (8:59:36 PM): "That'll help. just pick whatever you want. I have a ton of songs."
Polk Kitsune (8:59:45 PM): He looked at the card a moment, then smirked. "Time to get YOU out..."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:59:52 PM): "..."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:00:12 PM): "Kaito. She's a bit busy." He shoots a glance that says 'piss off' at the Red.
Sinisquirrel (9:00:22 PM): "T-thanks, but..." Mylene mumbled, taking off the earphones and handing them back. "S-sorry... I really want to watch..."
kwikkidus (9:00:27 PM): "But... I can't forget that the face that did it is yours! ...Mff. Maybe I'm shallow."
BreakneckChao (9:01:13 PM): "...Oh. Right... That takes care of the distraction.... but then you can't hear."
Polk Kitsune (9:01:30 PM): "I'll tribute Batteryman AA to summon another Dragon of mine... Super-Electromagnetic Voltech Dragon!" The mechanised dragon apeared on the field, roaring loudly across the arena. (2400/1000)
Sinisquirrel (9:01:35 PM): "Eheheh..."
BreakneckChao (9:01:43 PM): Henry leaned back over the rail.
Polk Kitsune (9:02:06 PM)
: "Aaaaawwww... But... But... " Cue the face full of tears.
kwikkidus (9:02:38 PM): "...Alright... fine. You can hug me." A sigh.
Viewtiful Rekk (9:02:44 PM): "And since you tributed gets stronger."
Sinisquirrel (9:02:51 PM): "Yes! Stronger!"
Polk Kitsune (9:03:31 PM): Meso smirked, watchign as the little batteryman was still on the field. "And by my dragon's special effect... My batteryman slides rigth tight and snug in the back slot of it's head..."
Polk Kitsune (9:03:37 PM): "... , to power it up by a good thousand attack points."
Polk Kitsune (9:04:06 PM): The dragon gave another roar as it's large mouth started to glow with electricity coursing through it. (3400)
Polk Kitsune (9:04:35 PM): "Electromagnetic Voltech Dragon, attack Kaiser Dragon! THUNDER BREATH!"
Polk Kitsune (9:05:09 PM): Melissa gave a little squeal. "Yay!" And merilly hugged Ed with a smile on her face.
Viewtiful Rekk (9:05:20 PM): The dragon is instantly wiped out by the Electromangetic dragon's attack. (3600)
Sinisquirrel (9:05:37 PM): "Now he just has to keep it out..."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:05:39 PM): "And now, Kaiser Glider's effect! When it's destroyed and sent to the graveyard..."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:05:49 PM): He points at Voltech. "One monster goes back to the owner's hand!"
kwikkidus (9:05:54 PM): "...Reeh..." He seems resigned to it.
Polk Kitsune (9:06:32 PM): Meso whinced. "Y-yeah..." And watches as his monster returned to his hand. "You did good, buddy."
Polk Kitsune (9:06:52 PM): "That ends my turn..."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:06:58 PM): "Draw!"
Polk Kitsune (9:07:04 PM): If he draws a monster... I'm finished...
Viewtiful Rekk (9:07:13 PM): "...I activate Golden Sealing Chest and end my turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:07:37 PM): A card appears and slides into the chest....Future Fusion.
Polk Kitsune (9:07:39 PM): He took a deep breath... and sighed in releif.
Viewtiful Rekk (9:07:43 PM): "Go."
Polk Kitsune (9:07:58 PM): "Okay... Draw!"
Polk Kitsune (9:08:43 PM): He looked at his cards a moment, and smirked.
Polk Kitsune (9:08:56 PM): "I set two facedown cards... And that ends my turn"
Viewtiful Rekk (9:09:16 PM): "Draw."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:09:23 PM): "...I pass."
Polk Kitsune (9:09:42 PM): Meso smiled widely. "... Thanks. Draw."
Polk Kitsune (9:10:18 PM): "I activate Call of the Haunted."
Polk Kitsune (9:10:36 PM): "And I'll bring back Batteryman AA to the field."
Polk Kitsune (9:11:00 PM): "And you know what follows..."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:11:02 PM): "Yeah, Voltech. Leave me with 200. Yadda yadda."
Polk Kitsune (9:11:50 PM): "Super Electromagnetic Voltech dragon hits the field... and since you know the rest... Direct attack!"
Viewtiful Rekk (9:12:05 PM): Ichirou actually yawns as the attack hits him. (200)
Polk Kitsune (9:12:32 PM): Meso snerked, and placed one card facedown. "That ends my turn."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:49:12 PM): "My turn. Draw!" Ichirou snaps a card from the top of his deck. "Also, since it's been two turns since Golden Sealing Chest was played..."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:49:22 PM): The chest shatters, and Future Fusion moves into Ichirou's hand.
Polk Kitsune (8:49:53 PM): Meso gave a gulp as he saw the opening move, and by his gut feeling, had an idea what followed.
Viewtiful Rekk (8:50:28 PM): "Next, the spell card Graceful Charity!" He slides three more cards off the top of his deck.
Viewtiful Rekk (8:51:20 PM): "I'll discard Seiyaryu and Nobleman of Crossout." Both cards slip into his graveyard.
Viewtiful Rekk (8:51:33 PM): "Next, the magic card! Future Fusion!"
Polk Kitsune (8:51:50 PM): Here it comes...
Sinisquirrel (8:52:21 PM): "Gh..." Future Fusion. Almost anyone would know what that card did... and Mylene didn't like it.
Viewtiful Rekk (8:52:27 PM): Cards begin appearing all around Ichirou; cards from his deck. "I'm gonna guess you know how this one works..."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:53:09 PM): Two cards in particular glow. "Tail of Ibris! Hyozanryu! FUSE!"
Polk Kitsune (8:53:14 PM): "You choose monsters from your deck, and send them in your graveyard, in order to sumon a fusion monster from them..."
Polk Kitsune (8:53:32 PM): "This is going to be bad..."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:54:24 PM): A massive dragon with diamonds jutting from all over its body like a massive wall appears and crouches in defense mode. (1800/4000)
Polk Kitsune (8:54:43 PM): "The tail of Ibris..."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:54:51 PM): Ichirou smirks.
Viewtiful Rekk (8:55:17 PM): "A very special card. It unlocks the true potential in my dragon-type monsters and forces them to their most powerful level through fusion."
Polk Kitsune (8:56:02 PM): "And a card only one has been known to posess..."
Polk Kitsune (8:56:15 PM): "Not pulling anything back, are you?"
Viewtiful Rekk (8:56:40 PM): "I never do."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:58:15 PM): "You seem to know a bit about Ibris..."
Viewtiful Rekk (8:58:26 PM): "Mind if I ask how?" He asks, smirking slightly.
Polk Kitsune (9:00:26 PM): The boy took a deep breath. "As simple as it may sound... I've had some research. Haven't spent all this time doing nothing... Even more with my neck on the line."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:00:51 PM): "I see.." Ichirou quirks an eyebrow.
Viewtiful Rekk (9:00:59 PM): "Anyway. I'm done."
Polk Kitsune (9:01:00 PM): "... And since I can see duel spirits," He muttered. "That thing was hard to miss..."
Polk Kitsune (9:01:09 PM): "Right! Draw!"
Sinisquirrel (9:02:07 PM): "..." He can see them? Awwuh...! ;w;
Viewtiful Rekk (9:02:37 PM): Ibris appears behind Ichirou and waves at Meso with her tail.
Polk Kitsune (9:03:02 PM): Meso blinked up at the dragon, and gave a small embarassed wave.
Polk Kitsune (9:04:18 PM): He took a deep breath, and looked at the dragon in front of him. "As mighty as it is, it's still in defence... The bad news, I don't think I got a single monster in my deck that can take it down..."
Polk Kitsune (9:04:37 PM): "In a fair fight anyways... Voltech Dragon's the strongest thing I got in attack points..."
Polk Kitsune (9:04:45 PM): "That, and my AA Bateries..."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:05:02 PM): So he knows about Ibris...interesting.
Viewtiful Rekk (9:05:38 PM): "Yes, that's the point."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:07:25 PM): "Unfortunately for you, it doesn't matter what your strongest monster is...."
Polk Kitsune (9:07:35 PM): "Huh?"
Viewtiful Rekk (9:07:50 PM): "My dragon has an effect. Once per turn, I can discard a card from my hand to force one of your monsters to attack it!"
Polk Kitsune (9:08:07 PM): "... WHAT?"
Viewtiful Rekk (9:08:09 PM): "So just tell me when your Main Phase is done, kid..." He smirks and grabs a card from his hand.
Sinisquirrel (9:08:41 PM): "Gah! Unless he ends his turn right now...! Or...! NYAGH, what kinda effect is that!?"
Polk Kitsune (9:08:56 PM): His eye twitched a bit. "That's crazy... If I had something like Batteryman C on the field... Tsk."
Polk Kitsune (9:10:01 PM): He tilted his neck a bit, hesitating. "Not very fair... Sensei."
Polk Kitsune (9:10:11 PM): "But like you said... not always fair..."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:10:22 PM): "...Please. Kid. Stop talking about 'fair'."
Polk Kitsune (9:10:30 PM): "My main phase is over... Moving on to battle phase."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:10:38 PM): "Nothing's fair. That's just how it goes."
Sinisquirrel (9:11:06 PM): Mylene thwonks her head against the back of a chair. He just went to the battle phase...
Viewtiful Rekk (9:11:18 PM): "Then I'll discard Polymerization...." The diamond dragon begins glowing very brightly. "Voltech, attack!"
Polk Kitsune (9:12:06 PM): As the dragon started to charge up it's thunder beam, a smirk was pulled on Meso's face. "Discarded a card? Then allow me to do the same!"
Viewtiful Rekk (9:12:18 PM): "...!"
Sinisquirrel (9:12:29 PM): "... weh?"
Polk Kitsune (9:12:32 PM): "Activate trap card! Thunder Break!"
Viewtiful Rekk (9:12:51 PM): "...Damn. Should've seen that coming."
Polk Kitsune (9:13:14 PM): Meso smirked as he held up his only card in hand. "By tossing one card to the graveyard, I get to destroy one card on the field. Any card."
Polk Kitsune (9:13:51 PM): As he tossed his card in, he pointed forward. "And your shiny dragon's gona get lightning struck!"
Viewtiful Rekk (9:14:16 PM): "...." Ichirou says nothing as his dragon is wiped out.
Viewtiful Rekk (9:14:36 PM): "Since a fusion with Ibris in it was destroyed...." His graveyard glows briefly, and a card slides out.
Viewtiful Rekk (9:15:00 PM): "She comes back to my hand." He takes the card and adds it to his hand.
Polk Kitsune (9:15:12 PM): And as the smoke started to clear out... "And since you wanted it so badly, badly enough to toss a card over..." Light started to pierce through the dust.
Polk Kitsune (9:15:36 PM): "Voltech Dragon, attack! Finish off his life points! THUNDER BEAM!"
Viewtiful Rekk (9:16:08 PM): Ichirou is hit head-on by the beam. (0000)
Sinisquirrel (9:16:27 PM): "He... did it...?" Blink, blink.
Polk Kitsune (9:16:49 PM): "And that's game!" Meso raised a fist in the air.
Viewtiful Rekk (9:17:13 PM): "Heh. Looks like it is." He smirks slightly.
Viewtiful Rekk (9:17:16 PM): "Good game, kid."
Sinisquirrel (9:18:04 PM): "He DID it! Melissa!!" Suddenly, the pink-haired one would find a small person clinging to her, crushing the wind from her lungs. "God, he made me almost have a heart attack!"
Polk Kitsune (9:18:10 PM): Meso gave a nod, smilling like a million dollars. "H-hai, Sensei." He wiped his forehead off the sweat that had built up. "Waaaayyyy too close for me though."
Polk Kitsune (9:19:12 PM): "Hehehehe-erk!" Melissa didn't have time to finish her giggle before she felt the air squeezed out of her. "That's right! I told you he coudl make it! YOU'RE THE BEST, ONII-CHAN!"
Polk Kitsune (9:19:49 PM): "I can see why you're a profesional though."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:20:06 PM): Jin lets out a small sigh of relief. He did it.... Outwardly, he does nothing but crack a small smile.
Sinisquirrel (9:20:39 PM): "Tonight, we party!"
Polk Kitsune (9:21:06 PM): "YYYAAAAAYYY! PARTY, PARTY, PARTY!"
Viewtiful Rekk (9:21:20 PM): "I can see why they thought you were a good duelist."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:21:30 PM): He nods a couple times. "Right. I've decided."
Polk Kitsune (9:21:51 PM): He sweatdropped a little, a bit embarassed. "T-thanks."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:21:51 PM): "Meso Maeorunme..." He points dramatically. "Starting today, YOU are my second apprentice!" Evil cackle.
Polk Kitsune (9:22:07 PM): *record scratch* "Huh?... W-what?"
Sinisquirrel (9:22:09 PM): "Heck, I'm in such a good mood I'll even invite rival!" ... wait a sec. "Apprentice!?"
Viewtiful Rekk (9:22:33 PM): "You. Are now my apprentice."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:22:51 PM): "As in, I teach you stuff and you'll get almost as good as me one day!"
Sinisquirrel (9:23:35 PM): "..." Mylene pictures Meso waltzing around in white and jumping out of lakes. "... iya."
Polk Kitsune (9:24:01 PM): His jaw dropped. "I... I..." He rubbed his eyes. "Woah..."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:24:05 PM): "....Of course, if you wanna refuse...."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:24:19 PM): Ichirou calmly walks up to Meso....and flashes his hand for one second.
BreakneckChao (9:24:31 PM): Henry looked at the group from across the stands.
BreakneckChao (9:24:47 PM): Almost inaudibly, he began to talk.
Polk Kitsune (9:24:57 PM): Meso's eyes went wide, and color seemed to drain out of his face.
BreakneckChao (9:25:03 PM): "Good for you... good for all of you."
BreakneckChao (9:25:07 PM): The boy smiled.
Polk Kitsune (9:25:10 PM): "... I... See..."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:25:10 PM): Almost insidious grin. "Get it?"
BreakneckChao (9:25:20 PM): "Have fun at your party tonight.... but as for me...."
BreakneckChao (9:25:28 PM): "I have work to do."
Sinisquirrel (9:25:29 PM): "... you're not coming?"
Polk Kitsune (9:25:54 PM): "Y-y-y-yeah!" He gave a nervous nod, then looked up at him. "U-u-understood!"
Viewtiful Rekk (9:26:23 PM): "Good!" A pat on the back. "You're a smart kid! I like that!"
Polk Kitsune (9:26:24 PM): "..." Not much of a choice... He stood up straight. "It'd be an honor, sir!"
Sinisquirrel (9:26:38 PM): "Wait, what? What's understood!?" Looking back and forth rapidly from Henry to Meso, Mylene makes a decision. "You!" She points to Henry. "Come to the party! Relax, we'll help you!"
Polk Kitsune (9:27:14 PM): Melissa seemed to gave a pout at Henry. "Not coming? But that's boring! Please! Come? The more the merrier!"
BreakneckChao (9:27:37 PM): Henry smiled.
Sinisquirrel (9:28:08 PM): Meanwhile, Mylene ran down to the field, hopping up on the platform that was almost taller than herself. "What's going on? What'd he say?"
BreakneckChao (9:28:21 PM): "I have a lot of work to do. I'm the only one who didn't win his promotion duel. My deck..." Henry looked at a single card.
BreakneckChao (9:28:28 PM): "...Needs some tweaking."
Polk Kitsune (9:29:00 PM): Meso sweatdropped as he saw Mylene run up. "I'm... going to be his apprentice." He gave a quick, nrvous nod. "Yeah!"
Viewtiful Rekk (9:30:14 PM): "Yep! I've got a good feeling about this kid!" Another pat on the back.
Sinisquirrel (9:30:36 PM): "Mmh... i-if you're sure..." The smallest on the platform looked up at Ichirou, completely... totally... not trusting him.
Polk Kitsune (9:30:53 PM): He gave a nervous chuckle as he was patted. "Yeah... I'm sure of it. Yes..."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:31:19 PM): "Now...FIRST LESSON!" He suddenly draws a riding crop from the confines of his clothing.
Viewtiful Rekk (9:31:27 PM): "50 Laps around the island!"
Polk Kitsune (9:31:39 PM): "I guess we made that new deck just in time." He blinked a bit, snapping at Ichirou. "WHAT?"
BreakneckChao (9:32:09 PM): Henry took a deep breath, and smiled back at Mylene. "I'll see you tommorow."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:32:13 PM): "I'll be following and throwing small rocks and reptiles at you."
BreakneckChao (9:32:18 PM): Henry began to walk towars the exit,,
Viewtiful Rekk (9:32:21 PM): "Every time you get knocked over, 20 push-ups!"
Viewtiful Rekk (9:32:36 PM): "It'll teach you to stay on your feet while you're under the pressure!"
Sinisquirrel (9:32:48 PM): "W-what the heck is-- Oh? O-okay, Henry! I'll IM with the details! REPTILES!?"
Polk Kitsune (9:33:03 PM): Melissa blinked, and as Henry left, she leaped in his direction, hugging him tightly. "See you tomorow~"
Polk Kitsune (9:33:22 PM): Meso's eyes seemed to bug out a bit. "... You gota be kiddign me..."
BreakneckChao (9:33:26 PM): Henry chuckled. "Thanks, Melissa."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:33:39 PM): SNAP! Riding crop hits Meso lightly on the shoulder.
Viewtiful Rekk (9:33:46 PM): "You want it to be 70 laps?!"
Polk Kitsune (9:34:03 PM): "YEOW!" He whinced. "N-no!"
Viewtiful Rekk (9:34:11 PM): "Then get moving!"
Sinisquirrel (9:34:19 PM): "..." It's almost like Munos all over again... except... not...
Polk Kitsune (9:34:42 PM): "Running! RUNNING!" And with only a small wave at Mylene, the boy started to run liek mad out. "GANGWAY! GANGWAAAYYYYY!"
Viewtiful Rekk (9:34:50 PM): He shoots Mylene a very scary look. "You wanna join him, blon- oh wait.
Viewtiful Rekk (9:34:55 PM): "You're not my apprentice yet."
Sinisquirrel (9:35:12 PM): "... yet? Never!"
Viewtiful Rekk (9:35:35 PM): "...." Ichirou pulls off a shoe and flings it at Meso, before running after him.
Polk Kitsune (9:36:00 PM): "OW!" He turned back a second. "A SHOE?!?!?"
Viewtiful Rekk (9:36:13 PM): "Oh, we shall see about that!" He shouts back, almost cackling as he does. "Yeah! A shoe!"
Sinisquirrel (9:36:18 PM): "... Me-Meso... good luck... g-god speed..." A small wince and a wave as the two begin to run off.
Viewtiful Rekk (9:36:20 PM): "Keep going, you do not want me to catch up to you!"
BreakneckChao (9:36:38 PM): Henry walked out of the door to the arena...
Polk Kitsune (9:36:45 PM): Cue the high scream. "RUNNING! RUNNING!"
BreakneckChao (9:36:47 PM): "Happy birthday, Henry..."
Sinisquirrel (9:37:16 PM): "... I'm so glad I'm in Yellow now."
Polk Kitsune (9:37:48 PM): Melissa gave a soft giggle, wrpping her arms around Mylene's back. "Congragulations!"
Polk Kitsune (9:38:24 PM): "I'm glad Meso's staying with us too!" She gave a sigh of releif. "It'd have been really lonely without Onii-chan."
Sinisquirrel (9:38:28 PM): "Y-you think that guy's less worse than Munos...?" Mylene asked fearfully, flopping into the hug.
Polk Kitsune (9:39:11 PM): Melissa blinked, and pondered. "I duno... I doubt he'd try to do half the stuff Munos did to the both of us... Although..."
Polk Kitsune (9:39:30 PM): She tilted her head. "Perverted escapades, here he comes..."
Sinisquirrel (9:39:58 PM): "... like that's new." What was that? Anoter part of Mylene's soul floating out? Maybe.
Polk Kitsune (9:41:17 PM): She gave a silyl giggle. "Meso's tough though, tougher than that silly, old, oddly dressed perverted teacher, I bet."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:41:29 PM): ".....Hey." A sudden voice behind Henry.
BreakneckChao (9:41:54 PM): "...Wha?"
Viewtiful Rekk (9:42:20 PM): It's Amado. Gasp. "....You said it was your birthday?"
Sinisquirrel (9:42:31 PM): "I hope so... let's go n' plan for that party... if he's not too sore..."
BreakneckChao (9:42:53 PM): "...Oh, Amado!" henry sighed a bit. "...You heard me?"
Polk Kitsune (9:43:04 PM): She gave a little giggle. "Yeah! If he's sore though... Then we get to take care of him properly!"
Viewtiful Rekk (9:43:08 PM): "...Yuh huh." He nods.
Sinisquirrel (9:43:35 PM): "Me-melissa!" Mylene hissed. "N-not in public!"
BreakneckChao (9:43:38 PM): "Yeah, it's my birthday."
BreakneckChao (9:43:43 PM): Henry smiles.
Polk Kitsune (9:43:50 PM): "Whaaaat?"
Sinisquirrel (9:44:10 PM): "N-nothing...!" She takes the taller girl by the hand and leads her out of the opposite exit.
Viewtiful Rekk (9:44:22 PM): "...Well...Happy Birthday, I guess."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:44:36 PM): "I don't...have a gift or anything."
BreakneckChao (9:45:41 PM): "You don't need one. You've given me enough already, buddy."
BreakneckChao (9:45:52 PM): Henry extended a hand to shake Amado's.
Viewtiful Rekk (9:46:08 PM): "...." Amado scratches the back of his hand for a sec.
Viewtiful Rekk (9:46:11 PM): *head
Viewtiful Rekk (9:47:01 PM): "Uh. Henry, about the thing....with my Undead Dragons..."
BreakneckChao (9:47:13 PM): "...Yeah?"
Viewtiful Rekk (9:47:33 PM): "I know our duelings methods are different...always have been, always will be..."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:47:45 PM): "But..." He pauses, and sighs.
Viewtiful Rekk (9:47:52 PM): ".....You're my best friend, Henry."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:48:02 PM): "I don't want to screw that up because of this."
BreakneckChao (9:48:21 PM): "...No, Amado. This is my fault..."
BreakneckChao (9:48:31 PM): "I shouldn't have judged your cards like that..."
BreakneckChao (9:48:44 PM): "It's your choice what you want to put in your deck."
BreakneckChao (9:49:19 PM): "And... I wouldn't want anybody else as my best bud."
BreakneckChao (9:49:41 PM): "I worry... But if those are the cards you want, it's not my place to tell you otherwise."
Viewtiful Rekk (9:49:58 PM): "..." He smiles a bit.
Viewtiful Rekk (9:50:12 PM): "...Thanks, Henry." He extends his hand out to shake the Red's.
BreakneckChao (9:50:30 PM): Henry firmly grasps Amado's hand and shakes it.
Viewtiful Rekk (9:51:50 PM): "....Happy birthday."
BreakneckChao (9:52:08 PM): Henry grins big. "You bet it is."
Sinisquirrel (9:53:34 PM): "..." Idiots. A darkened figure exits silently as the exchange between the two wraps up.
Viewtiful Rekk (9:53:50 PM): Many hours later, just as the clock hits midnight....
Viewtiful Rekk (9:54:26 PM): A gust of wind goes by Henry's window......
BreakneckChao (9:54:39 PM): Henry sat on his dorm room floor, cards strewn out all over the floor, as usual...
Viewtiful Rekk (9:54:48 PM): Which was supposed to be closed.
BreakneckChao (9:54:56 PM): "Hmmm.... Maybe if I..." Henry felt a cold gust of wind.
BreakneckChao (9:55:09 PM): "...I thought I closed the window?"
BreakneckChao (9:55:14 PM): Henry looked back.
Viewtiful Rekk (9:57:33 PM): Another cold gust shoots through the window, this one almost seeming like it's aimed at Henry.
BreakneckChao (9:57:48 PM): Henry felt the cold wind blowing in his face.
BreakneckChao (9:58:06 PM): "What in the..." Henry got up, walking over to the window to shut it once more.
Viewtiful Rekk (9:59:01 PM): As he gets close to the window, hundreds of tine blue glowing strings shoot into the room and silently grab the boy, pulling him outside.
BreakneckChao (9:59:27 PM): "...WHOAA!"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:00:07 PM): Henry is suddenly hoisted up on to the roof of the Osiris dorm...where someone else is waiting, the hundreds of strings going back into his hand.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:00:18 PM): Also on his Alastor's bloodstained Senri Gauntlet.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:00:23 PM): "Hello....Henry."
BreakneckChao (10:01:05 PM): "....Who are you?!" Henry struggled to break free.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:01:49 PM): "..." He turns, revealing almost vampiricly pale skin, and an equally deranged grin.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:02:03 PM): "My name is Victor Rasputin....I am the Vice-Chancellor of Youma Academy."
BreakneckChao (10:02:18 PM): "...Youma... Academy?"
BreakneckChao (10:02:27 PM): "That other dueling school?"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:02:34 PM): "Aah, you've heard of us!"
BreakneckChao (10:03:40 PM): "Um... My brother Akito told me about it..."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:03:58 PM): "Aah, right. Akito. Good man. Magnificent work ethic."
BreakneckChao (10:04:12 PM): "What do you want with me?"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:04:59 PM): "Ah yes, you." The strings begin to recede and draw back towards Victor.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:05:08 PM): "You are the subject of this conversation..."
BreakneckChao (10:05:30 PM): "..Wha?"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:05:35 PM): "I'm always on the lookout for new students for our academy..."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:06:00 PM): "Amado-kun and Lily-chan....two fine duelists. I believe they'd fit in fabulously."
BreakneckChao (10:06:19 PM): "...Amado... and Lily?"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:06:46 PM): "Mm. I'm trying to convince them...I gave Amado his new deck and whatnot..."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:07:11 PM): "But....I'm afraid you're a bad influence on them."
BreakneckChao (10:07:14 PM): "...You gave him those souless dragons?!"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:07:57 PM): "Yes, yes I did. I'm very proud of that deck. Took me a while to build."
BreakneckChao (10:08:26 PM): "...Gngh..." Henry began to sweat.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:09:15 PM): "Unfortunately, I have no such gifts for Lily-chan..."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:09:31 PM): "But that's besides the point. Like I, Henry Kaito, are a bad influence on them."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:09:43 PM): "At this rate, you're going to undo all of my plans for the two."
BreakneckChao (10:09:49 PM): "I'm... a bad influence?"
BreakneckChao (10:10:09 PM): Henry raised an eyebrow. "Your plans?"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:10:19 PM): "Yes..."
BreakneckChao (10:10:54 PM): "...What are you doing to them?!"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:11:03 PM): "..." He smirks.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:11:12 PM): "That's none of your concern, Henry."
BreakneckChao (10:11:24 PM): "Like heck it isn't!"
BreakneckChao (10:11:30 PM): "Those are my friends!"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:11:56 PM): "....But for how long?"
BreakneckChao (10:12:09 PM): Henry stopped. "...What?"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:12:18 PM): "Sure, Amado may have reconciled with you for the moment, won't last."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:12:28 PM): "And have you even seen Lily for the past few days?"
BreakneckChao (10:13:02 PM): Henry recalled having commented on Lily's strange abcense just earlier that day.
BreakneckChao (10:13:15 PM): "...No, I haven't."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:14:32 PM): A smirk. "I thought not."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:14:44 PM): "But....this is all besides the point."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:15:04 PM): "As I said, you're a bad influence....worse yet, you're a liability to my plans..."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:15:14 PM): His Duel Disk activates. "So you must dissapear."
BreakneckChao (10:15:49 PM): "I hate to break it to you, but you're not getting rid of me just by dueling me."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:16:15 PM): "Oh...really?" A small shadow shifts by Henry.
Viewtiful Rekk (10:16:41 PM): If he were to look around, he would's complete blackness around them. No stars. No moon. No lights from windows. Nothing.
BreakneckChao (10:17:21 PM): "What the..." henry glanced around.
BreakneckChao (10:17:29 PM): "What's going on here?!"
Viewtiful Rekk (10:18:16 PM): "Surely, you know what a Shadow Game is?"
BreakneckChao (10:18:29 PM): Henry's face contorted.
BreakneckChao (10:18:34 PM): "...Oh no..."
Viewtiful Rekk (10:19:18 PM): An insidious grin seeps on to Victor's face. "Prepare yourself, Henry Kaito...for this will be your last duel."
