    They do, and they're not even the right ones...

    Easy on the Gilgameshing buddy-boy.

    I mean... can you blame'em?

    Hey, stock characters need to come from somewhere, no?

    ....Wow, he really doesn't remember the whole "Summon the powers of darkness and suck souls to rejuvenate myself" plot?

    Aaaah, classy.... now get ready to be slapped with the infamy of being a snitch...

    It's good to see a Protagonist who isn't a reckless idiot and actually thinks things through before jumping into danger. This is exactly same as Harry Potter when Draco Malfoy called Harry out for illegal dueling at midnight. Three things that set Chazz as DUMBER than Malfoy:
    1.) Chazz didn't receive ACTUAL CONFIRMATION from Jaden that he accepts the duel
    2.) He didn't even have the cunning to alert the guards himself like Malfoy did
    3.) He left behind an ACTUAL EVIDENCE in digital age

    Sending that text message is the same as posting stupid and illegal things on Facebook/Instagram/Twitter and being surprised when it's used as evidence against them. It's sad how so many people act surprised when stupid things they posted online come back to haunt their asses. Remember kids, Internet doesn't forget!

    I took their names from the Duel Academy GBA game. I don't think they were ever named in the series.

    All he remembers is Kagemaru wanted them for immortality, he doesn't remember they need to suck the souls out of Duel Spirits to get it. It's been fifteen years since he watched the show on TV and only rewatched the first couple episodes on Youtube before making his dumb wish.

    Ah, fair enough, guess I'm more used to the japanese names from Spirit Caller -which btw, showed a couple more Slifer Red Students, including a fella who ran a Skull Servant deck-

    Oooof, that's gonna get real dicey once the Shadow riders roll into twon.

    And sometimes stitches.... but let's hope for the Bitches.

    Kagemaru is a decrepit old man stuck in a life-support machine. The SI could beat him by just throwing a rock at his glass tube. He needs the Sacred Beasts to suck energy to get those muscles back.

    Yesss.... that's the reason that he shouldn't get the cards( even though their are not-so-godly in irl) and also due to the shadow games and stuff too.

    Will there be any lewds in this story? If so, you’ll probably get much more feedback in the NSFW creative writing section for your story. That’s the popular/most used part of this site.

    Yeah the NSFW section would have gotten more foot traffic, but I'm not planning to write any lewds so I didn't feel it would be appropriate to post it there and having everyone ask "where's the sex?" when there won't be any.

    I'll have the SI comment on a character's physical attractiveness or use the common anime trope where the SI walks in on someone in their underwear as a gag, but actual sex I don't feel comfortable writing about. The SI will remain a Celibate Hero for the foreseeable future. (Hell if anyone were to get laid first, it would be Syrus.)

    If I did eventually write lewds, they'd go in a separate thread on the NSFW board just for them.

    The King has Left the Building
    Ch8
    -

    Chancellor Sheppard rubs his tired eyes before glancing down at the security report laying on his desk in front of him. Beside him on either side stands the respective Heads of Obelisk Blue; Doctor Vellian Crowler for the Boy's Dorm and Miss Fonda Fontaine for the Girl's.

    All three of them look disheveled after having been woken up and dragged out of bed. Crowler still has a hairnet and a facial mud mask on, and Miss Fontaine's hair is sticking up out of place at awkward angles and she can't seem to stop yawning.

    "Now which one of you would like to explain to me why you were all found out of bed and using the Dueling Arena after hours?" He looks across his desk at the four Obelisk Blue students seated in front of him with a serious expression.

    "Sir, I just want to say for the record I had nothing to do with this." Alexis Rhodes explains calmly. "I was just trying to find these three morons and talk some sense into them."

    Sheppard folds his finger together and rests his hands on his desk. "While looking out for your fellow students is commendable, Miss Rhodes, you were still found wandering out of bed. I'm afraid I will have to give you one weeks detention."

    "I..understand, sir." Alexis replies and sinks into her chair.

    "The same goes for Mr. Torimaki and Mr. Mototani." He adds.

    "Yes sir." Topher and Conklin bow their heads.

    Sheppard looks down at the report again and then turns to Chazz. "Now Mr. Princeton, what made you decide to challenge Jaden Yuki to an Ante Duel?"

    Chazz closes his eyes and hangs his head. "He bullied me and called me a mongrel."

    "He did what?!" Chancellor Sheppard's eyes widen in shock.

    "Oh please." Alexis rolls her eyes. "Did you forget I was there, Chazz? You accidentally knocked him to the ground and didn't even bother to say excuse me or help him up. No, you looked down your nose at him and called him a punk."

    Chazz grinds his teeth at having his lie called out.

    "Further more when Jaden got back on his feet, he stood his ground and returned every insult you threw at him back at you." Alexis continues. "You just couldn't bear the thought of having a Slifer Red stand up to you."

    "Is this true?" He turns to Topher and Conklin who share a nervous look but remain silent.

    Frustrated by their silence He increases his tone of voice. "Should I make your punishment two weeks?"

    Both boys sit up straight and start sweating as they crack under the pressure. "Y-yy-yes sir." "It's all true."

    "I see. " Sheppard expression darkens as his exhaustion seems to disappear. Crowler and Fontaine also snap out of their apparent drowsiness now that the full seriousness of the situation has come to light.

    Sheppard bows his head causing his eyes to be cast in an ominous shadow. "Mr. Princeton, bullying and Ante Duels are strictly prohibited at this school. In light of this testimony I have no choice but to give you three weeks suspension.."

    "Three weeks!" Chazz cries in outrage.

    "..and I will have to report this to your guardians." He continues.

    Chazz's expression turns to panic. "No! Please, don't tell my brothers!"

    "I'm sorry, Mr. Princeton, but the rules are there for a reason." Sheppard shakes his head solemnly. "Bullying is one thing, but Ante Duels are illegal. Had the duel actually taken place, Jaden Yuki would have been well within his rights to press criminal charges."

    Chazz clinches his fists in anger. 'Not like they'd stick. My brothers would destroy him.'

    "Now now, Chancellor. Do we really need to be to go as far as suspension?" Crowler steps forward. "Until now Mr. Princeton's behavior and grades have been exemplary. Might I suggest reducing it to three weeks detention? I promise to see to his punishment personally."

    Sheppard sighs. "Yes, fine. See that you do. But if I hear one more word of Mr. Princeton challenging someone to an Ante Duel, he will be expelled. Is that clear?"

    "Yes, sir." both Crowler and Chazz reply.

    "Good. Now all of you are dismissed." Sheppard tiredly rubs his eyes again. "Gods! It's 1am, class hasn't even started yet, and we're already having to assign detentions!"

    With that the teachers usher their respective students out of the office.

    Fonda Fontaine puts a gentle arm around Alexis's shoulder as they walk outside towards the Girl's Dorm. "For what it's worth, I'm proud of you dear." She says softly and gives her student a brief hug.

    "Thank you, Miss Fontaine." Alexis replies and blushes a little from the physical contact.

    "I told you to call me Fonda." the Head of the Girl's Dorm covers her mouth and giggles.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On the path to the Obelisk Blue Boy's Dorm a different conversation is happening.

    "What were you thinking challenging Jaden Yuki to an Ante Duel?!" Crowler yells as he escorts his three students across the campus grounds.

    "I was only trying to put that slacker in his place!" Chazz replies. Topher and Conklin keep in step behind their leader but remain silent with their heads hung low.

    "And look how that turned out!" Crowler turns around to face Chazz and pokes him sharply in the chest. "Listen! Jaden Yuki may be a second-rate duelist, but he's not stupid. If you want to defeat him, you need to outsmart him."

    "And how am I suppose to do that?" Chazz asks with a huff and cringes at Crowler's still mud-coated face.

    "Watch him. Study him." Crowler replies and raises his hand. "Learn what his weakness is, and then crush him." He clinches his open palm into a fist.

    Chazz looks excited at the prospect of crushing the uppity Slifer and grins.

    Crowler turns around and continues walking with his arms folded behind his back. "For now though leave Jaden Yuki to me."

    "Then what am I suppose to do?" Chazz asks indignantly.

    Crowler turns and glares. "Did you forget you still have detention? Oh yes, you're not getting off the hook that easily. For the next three weeks you are to report to the Detention Hall and Proctor..."

    "You forgot his name again, didn't you?" Chazz smirks as Crowler's speech trails off and Topher and Conklin start snickering.

    Crowler grinds his teeth. "Grr! You two be quiet or I'll extend your punishment to three weeks myself!" He shouts over Chazz's shoulder. The two snickering boys very quickly clam up.

    "Toshiyuki! You are to report to Proctor Toshiyuki Yagashiro." Crowler finally finishes and turns around to continue walking down the path.

    "I thought his name was Wade?" Conklin whispers to his companion.

    "Wade is his nickname you doofus. Just like how Chazz calls the two of us Conklin and Topher." Topher sighs in exasperation at his slow-witted friend.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Standing in front of the Slifer Dorm's bathroom mirror with a towel around my waist I stare into the reflection of Jaden Yuki's face. A bland stoic expression looks back at me.

    I run my fingers through my anime protagonist hair. Maybe I should get a hair cut? I suppose I could dye it. How about green? Screw the rules I have green hair? No.

    Blue hair? You've got to have blue hair. Except Syrus and Zane have the quota on that already filled.

    Red? No, that would clash with my school uniform.

    I could start wearing a hat. I need something, anything, just so I don't have to see Jaden Yuki's face in the mirror every time I use the bathroom.

    ...

    Sigh.

    I hate my life.

    "Jay! Hurry up or we'll be late for our first day of class!" Syrus calls from the other side of the bathroom door.

    Taking one last look at my reflection I slap my cheeks to psyche myself up. Game face on, and breathe.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    "Duel Monster cards can be grouped into Normal Monster cards, Fusion Monster Cards, Ritual Monster Cards, Effect Monster Cards, Trap Cards, and Spell Cards." Alexis recites from her place with the Obelisk Blue students.

    Ugh. I knew Crowler's class would be a drag, but I didn't think it would be this bad. Turning away from Alexis basically parroting the very first page of the player's handbook word for word I look around at my fellow classmates.

    Again, where the hell did all of these Slifer Red NPCs come from? And they seriously do look like NPCs with their normal hair styles in various shades of black and brown. Not a single one of them stand out. Maybe I should cut my hair short like the guy sitting behind me?

    "Jaden Yuki! Please pay attention!" I hear Crowler slam his hands on his desk.

    "Huh, yes?" My head snaps around.

    Crowler looks at me with disdain. "Explain to the class what a Field Spell is."

    "Uh.." I blink. Wait, hold on. Wasn't he suppose to ask Syrus to do that? "Are you serious?"

    Crowler glares at me. "Do I look like I'm joking?"

    Eww, I swear the stink eye he's giving me would give Severus Snape a run for his money. Several of the Obelisk Blue students start to giggle at my continued silence. Yes, yes. Yuck it up you little chuckle-shits.

    I snort derisively and stand up. "A Field Spell is a Spell Card marked with a compass rose icon, but unlike other Spell Cards it is played in the Field Card Zone. Similar to a Continuous Spell, they provide a constant effect while face-up on the field. But unlike a Continuous Spell, a Field Spell Card's effect can be used by both duelists unless otherwise stated by the card itself."

    "Very good." Crowler replies with a sour expression. "Know-it-all brat." I catch him mutter under his breath.

    "Oh so Alexis Rhodes can quote directly from the player handbook, but when I do it I'm a 'Know-it-all brat'? Ok, Boomer." I say a little louder than normal so the whole classroom can hear.

    "What was that?" Crowler asks sharply.

    "Oh nothing." I lean back in my seat casually. "Just pointing out the hypocritical Blue elephant in the room. It's pretty clear who the teacher's pet here is. You like 'em young, blond, and busty, don't 'cha Doc?" I make groping motions with my hands.

    "W-w-what?!! How dare you!" Crowler sputters looking positively apoplectic. "I will not be talked back to in that tone!"

    "Or you'll what?" I spit back defiantly. "Challenge me to a Children's Card Game? I'll just fry your ass again with Zaborg. Or maybe toast it with Thestalos? Toast it like a weenie."

    "Jjj-Jay!" A worried Syrus tugs at my sleeve. "What do you think you're doing?"

    "Giving Crowler enough rope." I whisper back.

    'I hope I am anyway.' I swallow nervously and watch as Crowler's face turns such a deep purple through sheer rage that it begins to match his gaudy lipstick.

    "OUT! OUT! GET OUT OF MY CLASSROOM!" He shouts and even goes as far as to pull a handkerchief out of his pocket for some reason and starts tearing into it with his teeth.

    Seriously how did this guy become a teacher?

    With a shrug of indifference I get up and climb up the steps towards the exit. "He's such a weenie." I remark as I walk past Bastion's seat. He says nothing and instead just watches me walk away with a look of disapproval.

    "I AM NOT A WEENIE!" Crowler shouts back having apparently heard me.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As I collect my school bag and PDA from my locker I can't help but worry if I might have made a mistake. My goal is to somehow get Crowler fired by turning his Love Letter trap back on him, but can I really trust canon to still follow that path?

    I was still late to the exam despite getting up early, but I was able to avoid crashing into Yugi Muto.

    Crowler still opened with Confiscation despite how much I shuffled his deck, but the rest of the exam duel was completely different.

    The first class was the same as well. Except Crowler asked me the question meant for Syrus.

    I humiliated Crowler in class so much it caused him to kick me out. Except he didn't kick Jaden out when he rubbed Crowler's defeat in his face. Some of the other Slifer students even laughed at Jaden's antics. No one laughed at mine.

    Could I have pushed things too far? Have I already butterflied may chance of getting rid of that pompous jackass? How much control over the course of fate do I really have?

    I wish I could just banish him to the Shadow Realm and be done with it.

    Stepping out of the Boy's locker room I check my PDA to see where to go for my the next class.

    "There you are!"

    Suddenly I feel a hand slam into my chest and pin me against the wall. The shock of the impact causes me to drop my PDA.

    "Wha-" I look up in panic and stare into the face of a furious woman with brown hair styled into spikes that hang downward on either side of her head. Standing behind her is another girl with black hair tied into a ponytail that spreads out making it look like she has tiny angel wings on her back.

    "You're the one who got Alexis into trouble!"

    "You've got some nerve slacker." The other girl adds. "I guess it's up to us to teach you a lesson."

    Wait, I recognize these two! They are Alexis's little cheerleaders. What were their names again?

    "Jasmine! Mindy! I told you to leave him alone!"

    The girls jump in surprise at being caught in the act and back away from me quickly. Breathing a sigh of relief I look down the hall and see Alexis walking towards us looking serious.

    "But Alexis.." "We were just.." The girls both look nervous and trip over each other words.

    "I don't want to hear it you two." Alexis crosses her arms and looks at her friends with disappointment. "Is this the sort of behavior of an Obelisk Blue? Are we stooping so low as to attack students in the halls now?"

    "N-no" The brown haired girl replies and hangs her head in shame.

    "We're sorry Alexis." The other one says not really sounding sincere.

    Ok, I get that their names are Jasmine and Mindy, but which one is which? Seriously they need name tags or something. Bending down I collect my PDA with a trembling hand. Damn it, now my nerves are shot all to hell! How the fuck am I suppose to look cool like this?

    "Don't apologize to me." Alexis snaps and gestures towards me. "Apologize to Jaden."

    No, don't apologize. Forget I'm here and go away.

    "We're sorry" The two of them turn and bow in unison. Neither of them sound all that sincere.

    "It's fine.." I reply as I try to wrestle my racing heartbeat under control. "..Let's just..never speak of this again."

    The girls stand up and share a look before Alexis shoos them away.

    "I'm sorry about those two." She turns to me with a look of sympathy that's more genuine than her two friends. "They didn't break anything, did they?" She looks down at the PDA in my hand.

    There's hardly a scratch on it. "No, it looks alright. Kaiba is an asshole, but he makes good shit..

    ...that came out wrong." I add after a beat once the realization of what I said sinks in.

    Alexis looks wide-eyed at my comment before she covers her mouth to stifle her laughter. "That came out very wrong."

    "I swear it sounded better in my head." I return her smile and tuck the PDA into my pocket. "What was that all about anyway?"

    Alexis lowers her hand and watches her friends walking down the hall in the distance. "Oh those two." She shakes her head and sighs. "I got caught out of bed last night trying to talk Chazz out of his stupid Ante Duel idea and got detention for it. Jasmine and Mindy blame you for it."

    I flinch and turn away. "Ouch..so uh..I'm sorry you got caught up in that." I forgot she was the one to break that duel up in canon before security got there. Damn, what else have I forgotten?

    "It's alright." She shrugs it off. "It's only for a week and Miss Fonda is nice."

    "Uhh.." I am confused. "Who?"

    "Fonda Fontaine." She blinks at my clueless stare. "Head of the Obelisk Girl's Dorm, School Nurse, and our Gym Teacher. We have class with her this afternoon." She explains.

    "Oh.." I make an exaggerated Oh-face, and then after a beat I shake my head. "Yeah I have no idea who you're talking about, but if you say she's nice I'll take your word for it."

    Alexis just smiles and giggles again.

    Ugh, she probably thinks I'm a dork. "Listen." I scratch the back of my neck awkwardly. "About my outburst in Crowler's class.."

    "Huh? Oh that.." She shakes her head. "Don't worry about it." She then leans in close and covers the side of her mouth with the back of her hand as she speaks in a hushed tone. "Actually I'm glad someone finally called him out. Crowler's a snob. He treats anyone not in Obelisk Blue like garbage."

    "How did they allow a pedo like him to be a teacher anyway?" I whisper back.

    Alexis straightens up. "Crowler may be a jerk and a bit creepy, but calling him a pedo might pushing things a bit too far. He is skilled and highly respected in his field."

    "Isn't he though?" I wonder. "You saw the way he was practically gushing over you with the musical way he sang PERFECT at your presentation, and calling you his Blue Obelisk. I'm just saying keep an eye out. If he does anything inappropriate, Security is just a phone call away."

    Her lips twitch in amusement. "And you'd know all about calling Security."

    I shrug. "Hey don't blame me for actually bothering to read the school regulations. If you see a crime, report it, and Ante Duels are classified as extortion."

    "I'll keep that in mind." Alexis states with a smile. "Well it was nice talking to you, Jaden, but I need to get to my next class. Bye." She waves and start to walk off.

    "Y-yeah." I reply. Having her refer to me as Jaden really hurts, but it's better this way. "Bye."

    Wait? Is she strutting?!

    I can help but stare with my jaw open and eyebrows raised as Alexis walks away from me with an alluring sway in her hips. Ok, she has got to be doing that deliberately just to mess with me. Quickly I look away just as she turns around and smirks. I'm not falling for that trap, woman!

    Jeez, and I give Crowler shit for only looking like a pedo while here I am ogling a goddamn fifteen year old. Stupid, stupid, stupid! I turn around and walk in the opposite direction.

    What I wouldn't give for a nice bottle of Kentucky bourbon to crawl into and never come out.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    'How dare that slacker make a mockery of me in my own classroom!' Vellian Crowler fumes as he storms down the hall. 'I'll show him just as soon as I-' His train of thought suddenly stops as he turns the corner and sees the aforementioned slacker talking animatedly with his star pupil, Alexis Rhodes.

    "Gah!" He gasps and quickly ducks back behind the corner. Slowly peeking around he spies on the two of them sharing a laugh at some joke between them. 'What does that slacker think he's doing with Miss Rhodes?'

    His eyes narrow in contempt as he watches them interact. 'Damn, I can't hear what they're saying.'

    'There must be some way I can get him expelled.' He grinds his teeth in anger as he tries to think. 'If only Chazz hadn't pulled that stupid stunt of his I could have used him to eliminate Jaden Yuki for me.'

    He looks on in disgust as Alexis starts to leave and the object of his ire has the audacity to stare lecherously at her posterior as it sways back and forth. 'Ugh! How dare he look at one of my Obelisk Blues like that!' His fingers angrily dig into the wall.

    "Wait, that's it!" He perks up as a light suddenly dawns in his head. 'Jaden Yuki, you may be smart, but I can see your weakness is the same one all teenage boys have.'

    "Yes, yes! Hahaha! I have you now!" Crowler stalks off down the hall cackling to himself as a deviously clever plan begins to form.

    ....Origins of Red Hat Tag Force protag?

    Dude, too far... especially in a class setting, like damn.

    Ah, these two yucks.

    ....I'm gonna assume that he isn't gonna try to pull the thing he did in the show, because.... well, it should be obvious that the MC isn't gonna fall for it...

    I'll be honest. I've never played the Tag Force games, so I had to Google what the protag looks like.

    And I like it, so I'm going to roll with it. As soon as the Academy shops open up (there's a reason they're closed) the SI's going to get a haircut because there is no way he's fitting Jaden's huge head of hair under a baseball cap.

    Is he actually confused at no one laughing at his antics in class? I mean, instead of just answering the easy question and letting everyone move on with their day he purposefully goaded the known Petty Teacher and practically threw his own mini-tantrum, albeit more soft-spoken than Crowler's. And they had to sit through that because he doesn't like the teacher? Honestly who gives a shit. I'd be a bit annoyed at the whole scenario too if I had to listen to all that.

    It's not that I hate Jaden, I don't. He's actually my favorite Yugioh protagonist.

    It's just being stuck in his body, constantly being referred to by his name, having to see his face every day in the mirror, etc are all constant reminders the SI effectively killed Jaden Yuki with his foolish wish. He's pushing it all away and burying it in order to spare himself from the pain. If he didn't, he'd go mad and begin to lose his sense of self.

    Or at least that's the angle I'm going for.

    So it looks like the SI has managed to attract Alexis' interest way sooner than canon Jaden did.

    I am honestly surprised about that. They're.... the stories in of themselves are interesting, but as for gameplay.... I do feel like you absolutely need the cheat that wrests the tag partner's control away from the dumb-as-bricks AI.

    Yeah, I honestly wouldn't be surprised if people started to openly avoid Jay here, considering his attitude and manner of speech here, especially due to his Slifer Red status.

    Mmm, yeah, that's kinda why I don't like SI fics that drop a person into someone else's body. You're killing a person and wearing their skin... and in some cases, get grand powers and tools you didn't work for in the slightest.

    I am really liking this. And I cannot help to find amusing how the SI is so childish with Crowler and yet thinkd of himself as an adult when dealing with Alexis.

    Man this is a pretty good read, also unique in how it replaces Jaiden with the SI. Can’t say you see to much of that. Overall a good read and I’m looking forward to what you do with it!

    PrinceJonathan I just found and binged this and it's pretty good so far.

    But I've gotta agree with Rakaan, needlessly antagonizing Crowler and in class at that is not just stupid but also pretty cringy to read.

    The King has Left the Building
    Ch9
    -

    Sitting in Banner's class with my elbow on the desk in front of me and my chin resting in my open palm I struggling not to yawn. And..I fail.

    "So as some of you student know my name is Professor Lyman Banner." said professor explains as he strokes his orange tabby cat, Pharaoh. "I specialize in some of the lesser known tactics and strategies in the world of Duel Monsters. Some that a few might even consider to be..unnatural."

    Wait a minute! Isn't tactics and strategies suppose to be Crowler's subject? And how the hell is Banner allowed to bring his cat to class anyway? Not that I mind. I love cats. I just think it's weird that they let him do it.

    "Duel Alchemy for example is the practice of turning one thing into another. In the modern era this is called Fusion." Banner continues.

    Huh, Duel Alchemy? Ok, he has my interest now.

    Magic is a thing in this world, but how does alchemy fit into things? I know Banner's current body is actually a homunculus that he made with this Duel Alchemy stuff and then transferred his soul into it in order to save himself from some kind of illness, but it's also slowly breaking down on him.

    Why is it breaking down? If I could make a new body for myself, then I wouldn't have to keep using Jaden's body. Perhaps I could even bring him back! Quickly grabbing a pencil I start writing down notes in my notebook. 'Duel Alchemy connection to Shadow Magic? Are there other forms of Magic besides Shadow?'

    I wonder if it works anything like Full Metal Alchemist's alchemy? Probably not, but that would be cool. I could just clap my enemies to death. Ha!

    "Now the most common way to perform a Fusion Summon is to use the Spell Card Polymerization to turn two monsters into a brand new one." Banner types something into the console in front of him and the image of the Polymerization card appears on the screen behind him which is soon followed by the images of Berfomet and Gazelle the King of Mythical Beasts fusing together to form Chimera the Flying Mythical Beast.

    "Can anyone tell me of another way to perform a Fusion Summon?" Banner asks the class. No one raises their hand.

    He scans the room as the silence drags on. "Anyone?"

    "Fusion Gate?" a nameless Ra Yellow replies.

    "That is correct." Banner smiles and continues stroking Pharaoh. "Fusion Gate has several benefits over Polymerization. For one, it is a Field Spell and as long as it remains on the field you can perform multiple Fusion Summons in a single turn. Although the downside of this is the material used will be removed from play."

    Ugh, can we go back to Duel Alchemy please? I want to know how to transfer my soul into a new body so I can bring Jaden back and finally say to hell with this saving the world bullshit and go back to just having fun playing a stupid card game and lusting after hot anime waifus I'll never have!

    I wonder what my new body would look like? I used to be a 5 foot 7 inch 120lb skinny fat manlet. What do I want my new body to be? At least six feet obviously. Broad shoulders I guess. Actual muscle definition would be nice. Although I would be too lazy to maintain it. Let's just aim for six feet tall and arms that aren't thin gangly twigs.

    "Hmm?" Banner looks in my direction curiously. "I something wrong Jaden? Do you find my class boring?"

    "What?" I look up with a start. "Oh! No, Professor. It's just..." Crap what do I say?!

    "Fusion Summoning is..not really worth it."

    Shit! Why did I say that?!! Whatever, just roll with it! I don't want him to know I'm interested in Duel Alchemy just yet. He'll probably immediately inform Kagemaru, and I'd rather not draw the old man's attention this early.

    "Really?" He adjusts his glasses. "How so?"

    "Well it's a waste of resources for one thing." I shake my head. "You're giving up two monsters and a spell card for one monster that in all likelihood won't stay on the field for more than a single turn. And on top of that it will most likely not do anything significant for that turn because most Fusion Monsters have no effect and terrible stats. Why waste three cards to summon say..Flame Swordsman, when you could just Normal Summon any of a dozen 1,800 vanilla beatsticks?"

    Banner hums thoughtfully. "This is true. How would you solve this problem?"

    "Metamorphosis." I state flatly.

    "But Metamorphosis doesn't properly Fusion Summon the monster." Banner says and brings the card up on the screen behind him.

    "Yes, but it only costs me one card instead of three." I point out. "With it I can turn Zaborg into Dark Balter the Terrible if I need to negate Normal Spell Cards, or Reaper on the Nightmare if I need a wall. Then Mobius and Thestalos can go into several Level 6 Fusion Monsters with useful abilities."

    He brings said monsters up on the screen for the class to see. "A good strategy." Banner smiles for a moment before frowning. "But this class is about Fusion Summoning."

    "Ah?" I blink and hear a few giggles coming from some of the other students behind me. "R-right. Sorry professor."

    Banner clears the screen and his throat. "Jaden Yuki does bring up a good point though. Fusion Summoning is costly in terms of materials. For the rest of today's class we will be discussing ways to mitigate these costs. Let's start with the spell card Fusion Recovery-"

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    "Wow, that class was something else." I stretch as I walk with Syrus down the hall. "Hell of a lot more interesting than Crowler's."

    "Really?" Syrus asks. "It sounded like you didn't like Fusion Summoning much."

    "No, I hate wasting resources." I say with a shake of my head. "This game is all about numbers, Sy. And I'm not talking about Life Points or Attack Points. I mean card advantage."

    "Card advantage?" The little guy looks confused.

    "It's simple. The more cards you have in your hand, the more options you have available to you." I explain while I glance down at our class schedule. "The more cards you have on the field, the more resources your opponent needs to spend to break your board. You get it?"

    "I understand." Syrus nods. "I think."

    "When I build my decks, I look for cards that at the very least pay for themselves in some way. Take Zaborg for example. It's a one-for-one in card advantage. I spend one card in my hand, and my opponent loses one monster on the field. And if Zaborg falls to a trap, that means my opponent just lost two cards, the monster Zaborg just popped and the Trap Card itself. Play like that and you can easily run your opponent out of resources." I continue as Syrus listens with rapt attention.

    I look up to see Bastion walking with his nose in a book. Speaking of cards that pay for themselves...

    "Hey Bastion, hold up!" I hold a hand up to draw his attention.

    Bastion looks up from his book as we approach. "Oh, hello Jaden." He says with a hint of resentment in his voice.

    "Woah! Jaden?" I take a step back. "What happened to calling me Judicael?"

    He closes his book with a snap. "I don't appreciate your behavior during Crowler's class. It was disgusting and unbecoming of a duelist."

    I flinch at the sharp sound and look away while sheepishly rubbing the back of my neck. "Ouch..yeah my acting was pretty cringy."

    "Wait you were acting, Jay?" Syrus asks.

    "Of course it was an act!" I look down at the little guy. "You think I'm really that obnoxious?"

    "What the devil were you trying to accomplish with such appalling behavior?" Bastion looks astonished.

    "To get Crowler sacked of course." I reply with a shrug. "You think my behavior was appalling, what about Crowler's? I gave him every opening to send me to the Chancellor's office, or throw me in detention, and all he did was kick me out of the classroom."

    I mime holding something heavy in each hand. "Fucking hell! He didn't even make me do that stupid thing where you stand out in the hallway and hold a bucket of water! He isn't fit to be a teacher."

    Bastion silently studies my face for a moment. "You may have a point, but I don't see how your revolting behavior will get Crowler fired. It just makes you look like a fool."

    "That's exactly how it'll get Crowler fired." I hold up a finger. "I know Crowler. He's too prideful and blinded by anger to report me to the Chancellor. Right now he's probably in his office devising some clever plan to get me expelled. All I have to do is flip it back on him."

    Bastion sighs. "You're playing a dangerous game, Jaden. I hope you realize that."

    My breath hitches as thoughts of the threats to come leap to the forefront of my mind. "I know." I exhale softly. "I know."

    Syrus and Bastion look curiously at my haunted expression before jumping in surprise when I suddenly clap my hands and force a smile on my face. "But enough of that! The reason I came over was because I wanted to ask you a question."

    "And that is?" He replies hesitantly. 'What was with that look just now? He acted like someone just told him his parents died and now he's all chipper and bubbly again.'

    "Do you have any Hydrogeddons you'd be willing to part with?" I hold my hands in hopeful prayer.

    "I might." He rubs his chin in thought. "Though I'm curious as to why you would want them."

    "I thought it was obvious." I let my hands drop to my side. "They're a respectable 1600 beater that generates field presence whenever they kill something."

    I pull a sheet of paper and pen out of my pocket. "Also do you know anyone who has Gravekeeper's Spy?"

    He thinks for a minute before shaking his head. "I don't recall anyone in Ra Yellow with a Gravekeeper deck. But then again I haven't met everyone in my dorm."

    "Do you have Sand Moth?" I scratch Spy off with my pen. Shit.

    "No." He replies.

    "Dekoichi the Battlechanted Locomotive?" I sigh and scratch Sand Moth off. Meh he wasn't that important anyway.

    "I don't think so." Bastion replies again.

    "Asura Priest?" I scratch Dekoichi off. Damn, so much for getting my old 2005 Monarch deck built. This is going to be harder than I thought.

    Bastion looks thoughtful. "I..might have one. You do know most of those are all common cards, right? You could get them pretty cheaply either from a store or a trade."

    "Yes." I sigh with frustration. "But the card shop is closed for some reason, and I don't have anything to trade. Really all I brought with me was my deck and a box of basic staples to rotate in and out occasionally."

    Well I did bring Jaden's E-Hero junk with me, but I don't want to part with it in case I might be able to bring him back. Hell I feel bad enough for trading Flame Wingman away. I'll need to get a new copy to replace it. It's going to be expensive though.

    "That is strange." Bastion hums and crosses his arms. "I asked Professor Sartyr, why the shop is closed and he refused to say."

    "Uh..Who?" I ask flatly. This is going to be a recurring thing isn't it?

    "I'm not surprised you don't know who he is." Bastion replies. "He seems to get that a lot. He's the Head of Ra Yellow and the Academy's Art teacher."

    "Oh, neat. So how much would you be willing to sell your cards for?" I ask and tuck the list back in my pocket.

    "I'll tell you what." Bastion unfolds his arms and points a challenging finger at me. "Defeat me in a duel and they're yours."

    "You mean like an Ante Duel?" I rapidly shake my head. "Those are illegal you know."

    "Not an Ante Duel." He replies calmly. "If you win, the cards are yours. If you lose, I won't take anything. Does that sound fair?"

    "Sounds fishy is what it does." I smirk. "What do you get out of it?"

    "Why the pleasure of defeating you of course." Bastions smiles smugly. "Consider it payback for that horrible stunt you pulled."

    I flinch and hiss sharply through my teeth. "You're not going to let that go, are you?"

    Bastion smiles. "Impress me, and maybe I'll forgive you. Say next Saturday afternoon?"

    "Sure." I nod.

    "I'll reserve the dueling arena then and let you know in advance what time." He waves and turns to leave.

    "Later Bastion." I wave back and let my arm drop to my side. Damn, four days to get my deck up to snuff enough to beat someone of Bastion's caliber. I'm screwed.

    "Come on buddy, we're going to be late to gym." I start off back down the hall.

    "Jay, are you ok?" Syrus asks sounding concerned.

    "I'm fine, why?" I turn to look at him curiously.

    "Your hand is trembling." He points out.

    I bring my left hand up and hold my fingers flat. "Huh? So it is." I take a few deep breaths to steady the tremors, and then clinch my hand into a fist a couple times before letting it down while smiling reassuringly. "Don't pay it any mind."

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    "Sy, that's the girl's side!" I catch the back of his collar as he walks right past me and almost goes into the wrong changing room.

    "Ahh!" His face flashes red and he breathes a sigh of relief. "Thanks Jay. They really need to make the sign bigger." He looks up at the plaque on the wall and adjusts his glasses which I am just now noticing he's wearing. Boy their rims are so thin you can hardly see them.

    "Your glasses are kind of small." I lean down a bit for a better look. "You sure you can see through those alright?"

    "Yeah, they're fine." He replies while taking them off to clean them with a piece of cloth before putting them back on.

    I smile and ruffle his hair causing my adorable little kohai to pout. Shit, I'm thinking of Syrus as my kohai now! As if I don't already feel bad enough taking Jaden's life, now I'm taking his friends too! I really am a terrible person.

    After changing into our gym clothes, Syrus and I join a group of other students in the gymnasium.

    My eyes wander over the crowd as we wait for our teacher to show up and they pass over Alexis. Huh? The track suit isn't exactly flattering, but she pulls it off. Hell Alexis would look good in anything.

    She catches me looking and gives me a small smile and a wave while her two bitchy friends scowl at me from over her shoulder.

    I wave back and turn away. I hate my life.

    All heads look up as we hear the side door open and a woman wearing a Duel Academy track suit walk in. It doesn't do much to show off her figure, but I can immediately tell she's got a nice bounce to her chest. Not as big as Alexis though.

    And her breasts aren't the only thing that's jiggling. Dangling from her ears are a pair of large round sapphire earrings. Really? Wearing jewelry to gym class? What if they get caught on something and tear off? That doesn't sound like a good idea.

    Jeez, and I didn't think it was possible to wear more lipstick than Crowler. Is she suppose to be a teacher or a prostitute? And that hair! I have to bite my tongue to keep from laughing. I love redheads. Especially genki girls with wild hair (you know they're going to be absolute animals in bed). But what is with that stupid blade of hair hanging down in front of her face?! There's so many jagged edges you could use it for a can opener!

    She's got beautiful eyes though which catch me staring. Miss Fontaine then focuses on me and gives me a playful smile and a wink.

    Inwardly I wince and look away. At least she's actually an adult. Although this presents another problem. Fontaine is smoking hot (stupid anime hair and gaudy make-up aside), and an adult, but I'm still stuck in a fifteen year old body. Ha! I can't win either way. Fuck my life.

    And then she opens her mouth. "Hi everyone! My name is Fonda Fontaine, and I'll be your Gym Instructor for this semester. You ready to sweat?"

    Aye Yah, that voice! I had her pegged for a valley girl air head stereotype, and she's got the voice to match. All that's missing is a mouth full of chewing gum and a tiny purse holding a chihuahua.

    "We'll begin with a few stretching exercises to warm up, and then I want everyone to give me ten laps around the gym."

    Oh joy, strenuous activity! What does this have to do with a Children's Card Game?

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    After taking a quick shower to rinse off the sweat from gym, we return to the locker rooms to change back into our school uniforms. I open my locker and look down to see an envelope laying on top of my shoes.

    Sigh. I know I was expecting this, but to see it makes me question just how much of an effect do I really have to change things. I know I wanted this to happen, but my ham-fisted attempt to force it should not have worked. This by all rights should have been butterflied away!

    "Hey, what's that?" Syrus peeks over my arm. Seeing the lipstick mark on the front causes his eyes to light up in excitement. "Ohh! Did you get a love letter from a secret admirer?"

    "Who the hell would even want a guy like me anyway, Sy?" I scoff and kneel down to pick the letter up. Curling my lip in disgust at the idea of Crowler's lips touching this thing I break the seal and pull the folded letter out.

    "What do you mean? You're a great guy!" Syrus exclaims, but I tone him out while I read the letter.

    {Since the moment I first saw you, I've been in love with you. Meet me tonight behind the Girl's Dorm. Endearingly Alexis Rhodes.}

    Why would he even think this would fool me? It's the first day of school! As far as Crowler should be aware of Alexis and I have never spoken.

    "Although you were kind of rude today..and you use curse words a lot..b-b-but that doesn't mean I don't still want to be your friend! You're nice, and kind, and you explain things about Duel Monsters to where I can understand it, and you..keep patting my head like...like my Big Brother...used to..."

    Syrus holds the top of his head and goes mysteriously quiet.

    "Huh?" I look up from the letter. "Sorry what was that?"

    "N-nothing." Syrus stutters and pushes his glasses up to wipe his eye. "So who's the letter from?"

    "Pretty sure it's a prank." I fold the letter up. "Probably some Obelisk Blues trying to lure me into a trap."

    "Oh." The little guy's expression falls only to perk up again. "Oh yeah! You warned us about this last night. What are you going to do about it?"

    That's a very good question. I was planning to just call campus security again and report a creepy stalker with a camera wandering around the grounds outside the girl's bath. The problem is I'm in Slifer Red and have no business being anywhere near the Obelisk Dorms to even see this supposed stalker. If they question my story, it would easily fall apart.

    Also do I really want a reputation for being a snitch? I already seem to have one for being an obnoxious jackass in class.

    "I don't know, little buddy." I stare into space as I wrack my brain trying to come up with a plan. I look down at the letter in my hand. You know..I'm not the only one this letter effects. "I might need to enlist the aid of some help for this one."



    AN: Sorry for the delay. Hope this one makes up for the cringefest that was the last one.

    Boom, Karma-comes-a-knocking

    ...Your what?

    Listen to Bastion, he's actually more mature, and a local, so y'know, knows the walk.

    I'm all for seeing this duel... and honestly don't care about the outcome.

    ...Well, do you want every Duelist to be Fat Bastards TM? Also, Action Duels might be thing in larger arenas, considering Chazz did get washed away by Water Dragon's attack in the anime.

    Ooooh? You gonna snitch about the letter to Alexis?

    To keep the kids healthy so when they gt older they don't become heart attack prone (which stress can compound with [and since they are making a card game their life purpose, stress will happen]). Save the children :p
