Viewtiful Rekk: Location: Ra Yellow weight room (basically, imagine the weight room from a middle-class high school).
Viewtiful Rekk: Amado is by himself, punching a punching bag, a rather surly look on his face. Everyone else in the dorm is probably asleep, from the time of night it is.
reonskyridge: Blaine enters and speaks. "Well, I guess it's time for my nightly training..."
Viewtiful Rekk: "....?" Amado turns and glances at Blaine.
reonskyridge: "Oh, there's still someone here." Blaine sighed. "I was hoping you guys would all be asleep by now..."
Viewtiful Rekk: "...." He looks as though he's going to say something, but just shakes his head and goes back to his abuse of the punching bag.
Viewtiful Rekk: "Yeah, well...it's a big room." He says.
reonskyridge: "That it is." Blaine walked over to a weight lifting machine and sat down.
reonskyridge: "You're Amado, right?" Blaine asked as he turned to him. "I've heard rumors about you..."
Viewtiful Rekk: "....Yeah, I am." He said. He didn't touch on the 'rumors' comment, though.
reonskyridge: "Hmm..."
reonskyridge: Blaine just stood there for a minute, trying to think of something to say. As a mercenary, he didn't really have a need to strike conversation outside of making a deal.
Viewtiful Rekk: "...." Amado stops. "So, who the hell are you anyway?"
Viewtiful Rekk: "I've been at this dorm for a couple months now, and I've never seen you."
reonskyridge: Blaine sighed to himself. "Figures. I haven't really made a name for myself yet here."
reonskyridge: "Then again, I haven't really tried." He smirked. "I haven't really found anyone worth proving my power to."
Viewtiful Rekk: Amado lets out a derisive snort. "Is that so?"
reonskyridge: "Yeah. At least, not until now."
Viewtiful Rekk: He bends down and picks up his backpack. "Well, good luck with that. I'm gonna go sleep." He says, and begins walking out.
reonskyridge: "Not so fast!"
reonskyridge: Blaine's expression got serious.
reonskyridge: "I heard rumors that you play with Red-Eyes... Am I correct?"
Viewtiful Rekk: "...." Amado stopped. "...I used to."
reonskyridge: "Heh."
Viewtiful Rekk: "Someone's holding on to that deck for me at the moment."
reonskyridge: He laughed. "That can't be the case. You merely aren't worthy enough to play him!"
reonskyridge: "You see... Red-Eyes... has chosen me to be its master."
Viewtiful Rekk: "..." Amado looks Blaine in the eyes for the first time. "I was just fine to play him. Like I said, someone's holding on to the deck for me."
Viewtiful Rekk: "...Uh huh. Well, good luck with that. Maybe our Red-Eyes's can have a tea party when I get the deck back."
Viewtiful Rekk: He begins to walk out again.
reonskyridge: "Tea party?"
reonskyridge: "Are you mocking my cards?"
Viewtiful Rekk: "No, that would require that I gave half a crap about them."
Viewtiful Rekk: "Which I don't."
reonskyridge: Blaine growled. "You don't care for your cards at all? How could you possibly use your Red-Eyes if you dont give a shit about him?"
Viewtiful Rekk: Amado let out a sigh.
Viewtiful Rekk: "Wow, someone else who wants to lecture me about caring for my cards..."
reonskyridge: "Listen." Blaine spoke, all straight-faced. "I don't care about most things, but my Red-Eyes...That's completely different!"
Viewtiful Rekk: Amado shoots a glance at Blaine. "Piece of advice, buddy."
Viewtiful Rekk: "Caring for your cards is a neat sounding philosiphy, but in the end, you just get screwed over."
reonskyridge: "..."
Viewtiful Rekk: "The relationship between a duelist and his deck is that of a commander and his soldiers."
reonskyridge: "Alright, Amado. Let's get something straight! I first came down here to challenge you for your Red-Eyes, but after seeing how little you care, you just deserve to die!"
Viewtiful Rekk: "Pfeh, man, someone more preachy than Henry...never thought I'd see the day."
reonskyridge: "Soldiers? Don't lecture me on such things. I'm a mercenary duelist. A freelancer roaming around for work."
Viewtiful Rekk: Amado reaches down, and picks out his Duel Disk.
reonskyridge: "I thought you left your cards with someone else..."
Viewtiful Rekk: "My Red-Eyes deck is somewhere else..." He reaches into his pocket, and pulls out a deck. A grin comes on to his face. "But this should suffice to teach you a lesson."
reonskyridge: Blaine reached into his backback (which he TOTALLY had the whole time) and pulled out his duel disk. "So you're going to teach me with your other cards?"
Viewtiful Rekk: "Well you're the one who says I deserve to die...why not do something about it?"
reonskyridge: He once more reached into his backpack to pick up a small locked case. Then, Blaine proceeded to take out a key from his pocket, and unlock the box to take out his Red-Eyes deck. "I plan to."
Viewtiful Rekk: "Good." Amado activates his Duel Disk and places his deck inside.
Viewtiful Rekk: "I'll go first." Amado snaps six cards off his deck.
reonskyridge: Blaine placed his deck in the disk to activate it. "If you insist, but soon you shall see my power"
Viewtiful Rekk: "....I'll start with Undead Blade Dragon, in attack mode!" What appears to be the deteriorated body of Sapphire Dragon appears, with two large steel blades welded to its arms. (1900/600)
reonskyridge: "Interesting card, but I can match it..."
Viewtiful Rekk: "Then one reverse card." A card appears behind the undead dragon. "End turn."
reonskyridge: "My move!"
reonskyridge: "I'll play one monster in reverse, then pass it to you."
Viewtiful Rekk: "Draw."
Viewtiful Rekk: "Undead Blade Dragon, attack his defense!" The dragon shoots forward, and fires a burst of flame at the defending monster.
reonskyridge: A dragon with a red mask appears and dissapears. "You've activated my Masked Dragon's special ability! Now I can summon one dragon from my deck to the field..."
reonskyridge: "I choose my Red-Eyes Black Chick." (800/500)
Viewtiful Rekk: "Heh. Masked Dragon..."
Viewtiful Rekk: "One more reverse card, and then I end."
reonskyridge: "Draw."
reonskyridge: "And now the fun begins... I'll start things off with something you might be familiar with. Activate my Chick's ability!" The Red-Eyes B. Chick starts to glow and grow.
reonskyridge: "COME ON OUT RED-EYES B. DRAGON!" (2400/2000)
reonskyridge: "But I'm not done yet....I now play a spell card: Inferno Fireblast! With this, Red-Eyes can attack you directly this turn!"
Viewtiful Rekk: "...." Amado chuckles as he's engulfed in flames.
Viewtiful Rekk: This comes out into full-fledged laughter as the smoke around him fades.
reonskyridge: "Huh?"
Viewtiful Rekk: "Trap card, activate!"
Viewtiful Rekk: Amado's first reversed card flips up. "Dead Dragon's contract! When I take more than 2000 points of damage in one phase, I can activate this card."
Viewtiful Rekk: A dark mist begins rolling in on his field. "Special summon - BERSERK DEAD DRAGON!" A massive undead black dragon, with a mane of white hair appears, and roars loudly. (3500/0)
reonskyridge: "That card..." Blaine shuddered. It looked just like a zombified Red-Eyes. "What have you done to him?!"
Viewtiful Rekk: "You talked about 'caring' for my cards..." Amado pointed at the massive dragon. "This guy, he's my ally."
Viewtiful Rekk: "I doubt it fits in with whatever stupid philosiphy you've got, but..." He shrugs. "So, you done?"
reonskyridge: "You freak! Why have you disgraced the Black Dragons?"
reonskyridge: "No."
reonskyridge: "Not yet....I play a monster in defense mode, and a reverse card."
reonskyridge: "Now go, you blasphemy to dark dragons."
Viewtiful Rekk: "...Heh. Blasphemy?"
Viewtiful Rekk: Amado snaps a card off his deck. (5600)
Viewtiful Rekk: "Berserk Dead Dragon's effect activates!" He points at Blaine's field. "He may attack each of your monsters once, which he'll do, starting with your precious Red-Eyes!"
reonskyridge: Blaine saluted. "He'll be back....and sooner than you think." (6900)
Viewtiful Rekk: "Yeah, whatever...next, the defender!" Berserk Dragon shoots a ball of yellow flame at the defending monster.
reonskyridge: Blaine smirked. "Thank you."
reonskyridge: As a dark phoenix arose from the field, it morphed into Red-Eyes B. Dragon. "When my Red-Eyes Kaiser Phoenix is destroyed in battle, he gets to bring my Black Dragon back from the grave."
reonskyridge: "I told you he'd be back"
Viewtiful Rekk: Amado chuckles.
reonskyridge: "What's so funny? Your dragon can't attack the same card twice."
reonskyridge: "You already said that!"
Viewtiful Rekk: "This is just too funny... Undead Blade Dragon, activate your effect."
Viewtiful Rekk: The blade dragon roars, and the blades on its arms begin surging with energy. "Once per turn, during the battle phase, I may add its defense to its attack." (2500/0)
reonskyridge: "A useful effect, but it still wont bring my Dragon down for long."
Viewtiful Rekk: "Now, Blade Dragon, attack the Red-Eyes!" The dragon leaps into the air, before slicing right into the revived Red-Eyes's throat, destroying it again.
reonskyridge: "Grrr...Red-Eyes...Soon you shall return." (6800)
reonskyridge: "And return you shall... Activate reverse card! Call of the Haunted" The dragon rose again. "You just can't keep a good card down..."
Viewtiful Rekk: "Heh, well how about that..." Amado mutters. "End turn."
reonskyridge: "Draw!"
reonskyridge: Blaine laughed. "This turn may seem kind of familiar....I summon a new monster to the field, but he certainly isn't something you havent seen before."
reonskyridge: A dark phoenix once more arose, crying out loudly. "Arise! My Red Eyes Kaiser Phoenix!" (1900/1600)
Viewtiful Rekk: "Pfeh...."
Viewtiful Rekk: "And if I destroy Red-Eyes, you just get to revive it again when that thing bites it."
reonskyridge: "And now for my old favorite...INFERNO FIREBLAST!" Red-Eyes roared, adn shot a meteor straight at Amado.
Viewtiful Rekk: Amado said nothing as another burst of fire hit him dead-on. (3200)
reonskyridge: "And now, Kaiser Phoenix, destroy his blade dragon!"
reonskyridge: The dark phoenix turned into fire, and flew right into his bladed beast.
Viewtiful Rekk: The Blade Dragon roars out dully in pain, and is wiped out. (2900)
reonskyridge: "I end my turn for now..."
Viewtiful Rekk: "Draw."
Viewtiful Rekk: "Alright then...I think I should probably regain some of my life..."
Viewtiful Rekk: "Equip Magic card - Life Absorbing Blade - Nosferatu!" A katana with a black blade appears in the Berserk Dragon's claws.
reonskyridge: "Another zombified card?"
Viewtiful Rekk: "First off, it increases the attack of the equipped monster by 500..." (3500/0)
Viewtiful Rekk: "And then, whenever I destroy a monster in battle with the equipped monster, I gain life points equal to the destroy monster's attack or defense..." Amado grins, waiting for that to sink in.
reonskyridge: "WHAT?" Blaine's jaw dropped. "If that card isn't broken, I dont know what is..."
reonskyridge: "Where'd you get it?"
Viewtiful Rekk: "Consider it a gift from someone...next, summon Undead Desert Dragon!" Another Undead Dragon appears, a pile of sand on the ground around this one. (1500/1500)
reonskyridge: "So this is the fate of your dragons? To turn them into mindless zombies?"
Viewtiful Rekk: "Pfft....buddy, I've already been lectured on the state of my dragons, by a way more eloquent speaker than you."
reonskyridge: Blaine growled as loud as his dragons.
Viewtiful Rekk: "Now, Berserk Dead Dragon, strike the Red-Eyes Kaiser Phoenix!" The katana glows, and shoots a stream of black energy into the Berserk Dragon's fireball as it streaks towards the smaller dragon.
reonskyridge: "Curses. Now I can't use his effect..." Blaine grumbled to himself. (5200)
Viewtiful Rekk: "And I gain life points..." Amado says, grinning. (4800) "And now, the Red-Eyes Black Dragon!" Another burst of flame at the Red-Eyes.
reonskyridge: "RED EYES!" Blaine cried. "I shall bring you back...Just you wait!" (4100)
Viewtiful Rekk: "Your attatchment to that card is gonna be the end of you...." (7600) "Desert Dragon, direct attack!" The desert dragon growls dully, the sand around it forming into hundreds of daggers, all of which rain down on Blaine.
reonskyridge: Blaine flinched as the daggers hit. (2600)
Viewtiful Rekk: "Now....goodbye, you loser."
reonskyridge: "Grr."
Viewtiful Rekk: "Trap card! Ring of Destruction!"
Viewtiful Rekk: A ring of grenades attaches to Berserk Dragon's neck.
reonskyridge: "You fiend..."
reonskyridge: "You have no respect for anything, do you?"
Viewtiful Rekk: "...Heh. Like I said, he's my ally."
Viewtiful Rekk: "He understands what the price of victory is."
reonskyridge: Blaine fell over, after being hit by the impact of the explosion (0)
reonskyridge: Blaine growled as he stood back up. "You may have a point, but it's still better to actually have cards that trust you not to put them in harm's way..."
Viewtiful Rekk: Amado chuckles as he deactivates his Duel Disk, walking over to his fallen opponent.
Viewtiful Rekk: "Trust...."
Viewtiful Rekk: "I tried trust."
Viewtiful Rekk: Amado grabs a fist of his coat that's obviously an Obelisk jacket, just dyed yellow.
Viewtiful Rekk: "Here's where it got me."
reonskyridge: "Obelisk...green?"
Viewtiful Rekk: "...I was in Obelisk."
reonskyridge: Blaine laughed a little to himself, trying to cheer himself up.
reonskyridge: "Didnt work out for you?"
Viewtiful Rekk: "I tried 'trusting' my cards....every time I did, someone close to me got hurt. In the end, I just got dropped down here."
reonskyridge: "That's why I chose to lower my skills, so I could avoid being with those freaks up there in blue."
Viewtiful Rekk: "Now then..." Amado grabs Blaine's coat, and pulls him closer.
Viewtiful Rekk: "Mr. Mercenary....why don't you tell me just who you work for."
Viewtiful Rekk: "This whole stupid setup doesn't strike me as coincidence."
reonskyridge: "Who I work for? What kind of mercenary would I be if I gave my secrets away?" He laughed to himself. "Tonight was a test. Soon you shall see what I"m really made of."
Viewtiful Rekk: "....."
Viewtiful Rekk: "Y'know....one time, I dueled this girl in Obelisk..."
Viewtiful Rekk: "She had this weird condition, when she got beat in a duel, she was completely drained of energy. Result of a Shadow Game, or something..."
Viewtiful Rekk: "I was trying to figure out who she worked for. She was trying to be tight-lipped just like you....fortunately for her, before I could beat her around, her brother showed up and rescued her."
reonskyridge: "Yeah, I heard of such things before." He smirked. "My services are often used to bring down those who use shadow games for their advantage"
Viewtiful Rekk: Amado's eyes suddenly change from blue to yellow, and he throws Blaine into a wall.
Viewtiful Rekk: "I don't think anyone's gonna come to help you." He cracks his knuckles.
reonskyridge: "Ahh!" Blaine screamed from the impact. Even as a mercenary, he still could feel a good blow now and then.
Viewtiful Rekk: Amado slowly walks over to Blaine, and gives him a very powerful kick in the chest.
Viewtiful Rekk: "Start talking. There's a lot of objects in here I could use to make this worse than it is."
reonskyridge: "The more you hurt me.." He cringed. "The angrier THEY get."
Viewtiful Rekk: "...They?"
reonskyridge: Blaine's eyes turned red like a fire, and his body seemed to glow with a flaming aura.
reonskyridge: "You see...Red-Eyes isn't just a card to me...and neither." He smirked. "Are THEY!"
Viewtiful Rekk: "....Ah, fuck. He's got the same thing I got."
reonskyridge: "The same thing? And what would that be?"
Viewtiful Rekk: "..." Amado sighs. A human-sized spiritual Berserk Dragon appears behind him.
reonskyridge: "So then...he really is your ally?" He chuckled as a human sized Red-Eyes appeared. "Strange coincidence, isnt it?"
Viewtiful Rekk: "Yeah, but...." Amado shoots a hand out and grabs on to Blaine's neck.
Viewtiful Rekk: "I'm pretty sure my ally can do something that yours can't."
Viewtiful Rekk: Suddenly, Blaine would feel his energy leaving him. At a fairly speedy rate, too.
reonskyridge: Blaine stopped feeling his energy leave. "I'm guessing you didnt hear the THEY part..."
reonskyridge: A new spirit emerged in front of Blaine, blocking the energy with a katana. "Meet Firestarter. He's one of me and Red-Eye's personal guardians..."
Viewtiful Rekk: "..." Just my frickin' luck... the Ra thinks as he sees the new spirit.
reonskyridge: "And as a spellblade, he negates your bizare wizardry with his own fire magic."
Viewtiful Rekk: "Pfeh..." Amado lets go and pulls his arm back.
Viewtiful Rekk: "Just tell me this...."
Viewtiful Rekk: "Do you work for the Vampire Lady?" He asks, a deadly serious look in his eyes.
reonskyridge: "Vampire Lady?" Blaine thought for a moment. "Sorry, doesnt ring a bell. Sounds more like someone YOU'D work for."
Viewtiful Rekk: "..." His hand falls to his side.
Viewtiful Rekk: "Just lemme say this...."
Viewtiful Rekk: "That....person...has taken away someone very dear to me..."
reonskyridge: Blaine got serious, as his spirits gathered besides him.
Viewtiful Rekk: "If I find out you know of her, and you've lied to me here, you can have as many spirits as you damn well please...I'll come back and I swear I will kill you."
reonskyridge: "Does she have something to do with spirits?" Blaine asked innocently, while fear struck his eyes. "Because these guys are here to help me out on their own. The found me and chose to protect me as long as I care for them..."
Viewtiful Rekk: "...Yeah, she does."
reonskyridge: "Intruging...care to tell me more?"
Viewtiful Rekk: "....Not really. Unless you know something about the Vampire Lady, it's none of your business."
reonskyridge: "..." Blaine thought to himself. "Well, I feel sorry for you. The way that your cards have become...and the fact that you lost something. If there's any way I can help, I'd be happy to be of service. Free of charge!"
Viewtiful Rekk: "..." Amado shakes his head. Just like Henry. "Sorry. I work alone, for the most part." And unless stopped, he turns and leaves.
reonskyridge: Blaine reached out to stop him, but he was too late. Amado was gone, and Mr. Trevas was all alone with his spirits.
reonskyridge: "I feel like we should do something," Firestarter said.
reonskyridge: "I know...but what?"
