Chapter 2: Welcome to Duel Academy
Jaden, Syrus, Bastion, and Aisu were all sitting amongst a crowd of students listening to Chancellor Sheppard, a bald man wearing a purple or deep red jacket and headmaster of Duel Academy, giving a speech to all the students.
"Welcome, Elite Duelists," the Chancellor had greeted them, "I am Chancellor Sheppard, and the Headmaster of this school you all now attend. You all have used your skills in order to enter the narrow admission gates of Duel Academy."
As the speech was going on, Aisu was messing around with the cuff on his blue blazer. The chancellor did not stop speaking and had a smile on his face as he looked at the students as he continued, "It is my hope that you all have fun studying on the path to become the next King of Games. Now please, get yourselves settled within your assigned dormitories. I hope you find them quite comfortable; depending on how you scored on your exams of course."
With a chuckle the man stepped down and dismissed everyone. After speech was completed everyone started to go their separate ways. Aisu saw Jaden and Syrus, in red blazers, talking and walked over to them. Bastion, who was dressed within a yellow blazer, had a similar idea and walked towards the duo as well.
"Hey Bastion, Aisu are you guys in Red as well?" asked Jaden once he noticed the pair.
Aisu looked at Jaden with a deadpan expression on his face, while Bastion chuckled and said, "Hmm, let's see…yellow buttons, yellow sleeves, nope. I do not think so."
"Bastion has a point Jaden; the blazers are color coded so everyone knows which dorms they are in. In my case, Jaden I would be in the Obelisk Blue dorm while Bastion would be in the Ra Yellow dorm," Aisu added, the deadpan look still on his face.
"Oh… so that's how it works…" Jaden said with a look of realization.
"Are you saying you just figured that out?" Bastion asked with an eyebrow raised.
"So what? Did it ever occur to you that I might be color blind?" Jaden retorted.
"No. Are you?" Bastion replied.
"No but I could have been!" Jaden answered. "So I guess me and Sy will be seeing you two around the dorms then!"
"Sorry Jaden but your dorm is over there" said Aisu, pointing to the west side of the island, "Mine is near the main building while Bastion's is near the lake opposite of the Obelisk Girls dorm."
"Speaking of dorms, Aisu, why is it that you are in Blue but not Bastion? Is it because of that one turn kill of yours you used on Crowler?" asked Syrus curiously.
"I don't know about Bastion, but no my one turn kill stunt is not the reason I am in Obelisk Blue, Syrus," said Aisu before continuing, "On the written portion I scored within the top 33 in rankings, my stunt with Crowler was just seen as luck and good deck construction which was used to make up for my tardiness, anyone with the right cards could make a one turn kill strategy when we have to use the 4000 life point rule. I am also lucky that Crowler had no say in the placements."
"Oh..." was Syrus's only reply at that answer before he, Jaden, and Aisu turned to Bastion looking for an answer as to why he wasn't in Blue since he scored the highest in the written exams.
"I do not want to be in the Blue dorm until I am the number one duelist in our year," Bastion answered Syrus's question, which got nods from Jaden and Aisu as they can understand his reasoning somewhat: Bastion wanted to prove to himself and others how much of a good duelist he was before taking a place in Obelisk Blue.
"Also we should be heading towards our Dorm Rooms and unpack," Bastion added, "Our stuff should have been transported to our dormitories."
"Alright how about after we are all done we meet up in front of the main building and explore it, figure out where the arenas are and such for important events and find where our classroom is so we won't late when classes start," proposed Aisu.
"An excellent suggestion Aisu, we just need to make sure we make it back to our dorms before the welcoming feasts start up," replied Bastion, who was glad to see that Aisu had some interest in education and knowing his surroundings.
"Welcoming Feasts?" asked an excited Jaden.
"Your really didn't read the introduction mail about the Academy on the PDA did you Jaden?" asked Aisu, a deadpan look adorning his face once more, "Anyway, yes welcoming feasts, one in every dorm held at 6:00 in the evening on the day the new students arrive on the island. Right now it's 12:36 in the afternoon, so we should have some time to explore."
"All right, let's go Sy! We'll unpack, explore for a bit, and then eat!" exclaimed Jaden excitedly as he raced off to where the Red Dorm was located, prompting Syrus to run after Jaden yelling for him to wait up.
"At least they're eager, I will see you soon Aisu," said Bastion, shaking his head before nodding at Aisu followed by him walking towards his dorm.
"See you later, Bastion," replied Aisu as he walked to the Obelisk Blue Boys Dorm.
The Obelisk boys' dorm was a mansion rather than a dorm: A white, fancily-structured building with a blue-tiled roof, and so tall that one could look over the surrounding forest areas and see the ocean.
Aisu followed the directions on his PDA to his dorm room, passing through the luscious hallways that were neatly decorated with nice wallpaper. He finally arrived in front of his room, on the second floor. When he entered, Aisu took in the surroundings that he would be facing for the next three years of his life; a nice, clean room with one bed on one side of the room, with nicely carved dresser and night stand combo on either side of the bed that soon contain most of Aisu's personal belongings. There was also a finely carved computer desk opposite of the bed with a comfortable looking chair in front of the desk to sit on. There was also another open door revealing a rather and well kept nice bathroom for personal hygiene on the opposite of where Aisu stood close to the dresser and bed.
Shaking his head slightly, Aisu gave a small smile; the room, while holding expensive looking furniture and was bigger than his old room at home, was kept simple. Aisu immediately went to work unpacking the few belongings he brought with him. By the time he finished unpacking and setting everything up, it was nearing 2:00 PM.
Aisu headed for the door, before taking another look at what will be his room for the next three years. On the nightstand were an alarm clock, lamp, and a family picture. Adorning the dresser were a variety of pictures of his family while the walls had a couple duel monster posters taped to the wall. Nodding to himself Aisu left to meet with the Jaden, Syrus, and Bastion.
-Scene Break: An hour earlier-
While Aisu was setting things up in his Dorm, Jaden and Syrus reached theirs. While the Obelisk dorm resembled a mansion, the Slifer dorm looked more like a small motel. This caused Syrus to become depressed while Jaden maintained a positive attitude.
"Man, this place looks run down…" muttered Syrus looking at the dorm.
"Come on Sy, don't be like that. I mean look at the great sea side view we have!" Jaden proclaimed with a smile on his face.
The duo proceeds to find their room and enter. The room was small with only three feet at best between the triple deck bunk bed and the only desk in room, though the desk was six feet from the door. Other than the bed and desk a small sink near the door and next to that a closet to keep ones clothes in. Between the closet and the bunk bed was a small book shelf that held a couple of text books. The window was closed off by a pair of window curtains.
After looking around Jaden walks towards the window as Syrus does some thinking: how it seems as if they were destined to be friends due to reincarnation, but Jaden promptly told Syrus that the idea was silly while a goofy smile was adorning his face. Jaden swiftly pulled the curtains to the side when a disgruntled voice came from above him and Syrus.
"Hey! Some people are trying to sleep!" the source of the voice popped from the top most bunk of the bunk bed revealing a young man of around 18 years of age, his nose and hair giving people the impression of a koala.
Upon seeing the young man both Jaden and Syrus yelled in shock, "Ah! Giant Koala!"
"I'm not a koala!" the young man yelled at them before saying, "My name is Chumley Huffington, and you guys just woke me up."
"Hey there, Chumley. My name is Jaden and this is Syrus," Jaden said with a smile, Syrus nodding in agreement.
"You guys must be freshman otherwise you would know how this school is run," Chumley said looking at them from his laying position on the bed, "Let me tell you guys: First are the Obelisk Blues, the elites of the school and often have inside connections with the school. Next there is Ra Yellow, the middle ground that does well on the exams. Finally there is us the Red Wonders."
"That doesn't sound too bad," said Syrus as some optimism finally came into his voice.
Only Chumley dashed that optimism with his next statement,:"As in 'it's a wonder they're even here'. We are the bottom of the barrel and the dunces of the school."
After that Chumley turns away and goes back to sleep, leaving Syrus depress. Jaden, seeing Syrus's mood tried to cheer him up: "C'mon Sy don't be so glum we'll show them. Now let's unpack and meet up with Bastion and Aisu."
Syrus nodded, still a little put out but smiling at Jaden's enthusiasm. Quickly going to work in placing their clothes and essentials where they needed to be, Syrus then went along with Jaden as they headed back to the Academy building. By the time they left it was 1:50 PM.
-Scene change: Academy Building-
Aisu and Bastion were the first to finish unpacking and reach the meeting place that was agreed. Bastion had only some clothes, cards, and notebooks packed, so he was done quicker but had a longer walk, than Aisu who also had to take time setting up pictures of his family and his posters. They had been talking for the past twenty minutes on strategies and making some mock duel puzzles, all of which Bastion managed to solve. They also spoke of their opinions of the dorms and from there discussed possible reasoning for the setup: their preferred theory was to reward those who put in a lot of effort in their education at Duel Academy. As they were preparing to work on more puzzles Jaden and Syrus came running to the meeting point.
"Either you two had a lot of luggage or the Slifer Dorm must be farther away than I thought," Bastion noted with some bemusement as he watched the two Slifer students pant from the run, Syrus panting harder then Jaden's.
"T-the latter, Bastion…" Jaden panted with a smile as he got his breathing back to a normal pace though he now looked excited, "Anyway let's get going with this tour, maybe even have a few duels!"
"Alright, but to be sure that we accomplish our goal of learning what's needed for our time here, we'll be touring the arenas last, Jaden," Aisu remarked, brushing aside one of his pink bangs from his eyes, drawing Jaden's attention to said bangs.
"Whoa, did you dye your hair like that, and if so why pink?" asked Jaden, both curious and surprised.
"You just noticed I have pink bangs, Jaden." The statement was accompanied by Aisu's half-lidded stare though if one would look at his lips they would see the beginning of a small smile of relief. "As to your question, no I do not dye my hair; it's naturally like this, don't ask me how as I do not know."
Jaden and Syrus nod at Aisu's answer, while Bastion wondered how it was possible to have two different hair colors naturally before the four went into the academy.
The five floors that made the main academy building were laid out in the following fashion; the first floor held the lobby, student store, infirmary, and the library. The second floor held the Duel arenas, but they went by those so they could finish the tour first. They ended up needing to drag Jaden away from the floor in order to continue. Floors three and four held all the classrooms and the quickly navigated their way to their own which was luckily on the third floor. The fifth floor however had the faculty offices; they even saw Chancellor Sheppard, who was pleasantly surprised at the four students for taking their education seriously enough to make sure they understood where to go in certain circumstances. The chancellor even gave the four some advice on certain teachers best suited for some emergencies which they thanks him for. By the time they finished the majority of their tour, they headed to look at the arenas. It was around five-fifteen.
When the four reached the second floor, Jaden started sniffing the air and proclaimed that he smelled someone dueling before running off to one of the arenas with the others following behind, though Bastion and Aisu were wondering how it was possible to smell dueling in the first place.
Bastion, Syrus, and Aisu entered one of the arenas the saw Jaden admiring the set up. It was simple where the dueling field was an elevated platform in the middle of the room, with stairs on either side of the platform for the duelists to walk up. Chairs were on a higher level of the room for an audience to watch, and everything was kept clean. It did not look unique other than the metallic features on the walls, but it was definitely better then the makeshift school yard arenas the four probably used before coming to Duel Academy.
"This is so sweet!" Jaden exclaimed, shaking with excitement, "Come on guys how about a duel?"
The question was asked so quickly, Jaden had already moved to get on the dueling platform.
Bastion shook his head with a wry smile and replied, "Sorry Jaden but I will have to sit this one out. I left my cards back in my dorm as I'm planning on working on a new deck formula later today and tomorrow."
"Sorry, Jay, but I'm no good," was Syrus's depressed reply, only for him to get a slight bonk to the head from Aisu.
"Stop thinking negatively; that only makes things worse. And I can't duel today Jaden as I left my duel disk back at my dorm, maybe tomorrow." said Aisu.
Jaden was kept from replying when they heard a voice say, "Hey! What are you doing up there Slifer Slacker?"
Everyone turned to where the voice had come from, and saw two Obelisk Blue students in the audience seats who had come from the entrance up there; both Obelisks had sneers adorning their faces. The Obelisk student on the right had blue hair done to one side of his face, while the other had brown hair spiked upwards.
"Can't you slackers see?" said the brunette, pointing at the top of the entrance the four he was addressing used, where there was a bronze circle with an engraving of Obelisk the Tormentor.
"That symbol means that this arena is reserved for us elites, not you Slifer Slackers and Ra Rejects!" It was obvious that the brunette was referring to Jaden, Syrus, and Bastion, which caused Aisu to glare at the brunette.
"Then how about one of you guys duel me?" Jaden said, a grin on his face as the insults seemed to just breeze by him, to the amazement of Aisu and Syrus.
"Ha! Why would we bother with a slacker like your-" the blue-haired one started, but was interrupted by the brunette.
"Wait. Hey Chazz the ones who beat Crowler are here!" the brunette called out over his shoulder to him.
After the brunette's call, an Obelisk Blue student with black hair done up in large spikes came in, a smug smirk adorning his face.
"Well, well… so a Slacker like you managed to beat Crowler; you must have some skill," commented Chazz, his smug look turning into a sneer as he continued before Jaden could say anything, as it was obvious who Chazz was talking about, "Of course it could have just been dumb luck that you won against Crowler in the first place."
This caused Jaden to lose his grin as he replied, "Who are you?"
This caused the blue-haired one to sneer and yell, "Don't you know who you're talking to, you Slifer Slime?! He is the next King of Games, Chazz Princeton!"
The declaration caused Chazz's chest to puff up in pride before it took a blow from Jaden's following remark.
"Impossible," was all Jaden had said, causing Chazz to glare at the Slifer student.
"Oh and why is that, trash?" Chazz asked, everyone was watching the two with some degree of fascination.
"Simple, because I'm going to become the next King of Games!" was Jaden's bold claim.
"Oh, yeah? Why don't you put your money where your deck is? You and me with an Ante rule," Chazz challenged.
"Alright, bring it, Chazz," Jaden replied, bringing his duel disk up to bare.
As Aisu and Bastion were about to say something a female voice was heard, "Hold it, you two!"
Everyone turned to the source of the voice and saw a blond young woman in a predominantly white with blue accents vest and a blue skirt.
"A-Alexis!" Chazz managed to choke out.
"Chazz, you know duels with the Ante rule are forbidden on campus," the indentified woman, Alexis, said before continuing, "While I can't keep you from dueling, I can keep you from pushing people into duels that are against the rules."
"Alright, alright. I won't enforce the Ante rule. Sheesh…" grumbled Chazz as he headed down to the duel platform.
Once Chazz got onto the platform both he and Jaden held their duel disks in front of themselves and yelled, "DUEL!"
Chazz: 4000 LP
Jaden: 4000 LP
"I'll go first!" yelled Chazz as he drew his sixth card before looking at his hand before smirking, "I'll start of by summoning Reborn Zombie in defense mode."
As Chazz placed the card onto his disk a shriveled up corpse wearing grey and black rags appeared kneeling with its arms crossed (4/1000 Atk/1600 Def).
"Then I set one card face and end my turn," Chazz finished his turn as the face-down appeared.
"Alright, my turn!" yelled Jaden as he drew his sixth card.
Looking at the card he drew he smiled. "Alright, I'll start off with the spell Polymerization! This will allow me to fuse my Avian and Burstinatrix in my hand in order to bring out my Elemental Hero Flame Wingman!"
As Jaden said this the Green skinned, dragon-armed hero appeared (6/2100 Atk/1200 Def).
"Ha! I knew you would summon him slacker! I activate Chthonian Polymer: by tributing my Zombie I can take control of your Wingman!" Chazz said with a dark smirk as his Reborn Zombie disappeared, and Jaden's hero flew to Chazz's side of the field, its wing turning black and its skin darkening.
"Huh? How did Chazz know Jaden was going to summon Flame Wingman?" asked Syrus, confused.
"Chazz most likely saw Jaden's duel against Crowler…" Bastion answered for Syrus.
"If that is the case it didn't have to be Flame Wingman that Jaden summoned," said Aisu, his arms crossed over his chest.
"What do you mean, Aisu?" Syrus questioned.
"Jaden's Deck, Elemental Heroes, relies on fusion summoning. There are a large variety of heroes to fuse from just six of the monsters available in the Elemental Hero archetype," replied Aisu to Syrus's question.
"Quite; there is even an alternate monster Jaden could have summoned using Avian and Burstinatrix." Bastion commented.
"Ack!" was Jaden's reply to seeing his Elemental Hero being turned against him, "Well then the best I can do at the moment is summon Elemental Hero Clayman in defense mode."
Jaden placed the card onto the disk and a figure made of what looked to be slabs of clay appeared kneeling (4/ 800 Atk/2000 Def).
"With that my turn ends," Jaden ended his turn.
Aisu was wondering if that really was the best move Jaden could have pulled in that position.
"Heh, that the best you got slacker? Oh well, my turn. Draw!" Chazz stated drawing a fifth card, "I'll start off by summoning Chthonian Soldier it attack mode"
As Chazz place the card a warrior in black armor wielding a Ax-sword and a shield appeared on his side of the field (4/1200 Atk/1400 Def).
"Now I'll use your Flame Wingman to destroy your Clayman. Go, Skydive Scorcher!" At the command Wingman leapt into the air before diving towards Clayman smashing him to pieces.
"Thank goodness that I had Clayman in defense," said Jaden, covering himself from the holographic smoke created from Clayman's destruction, only for Chazz to rain on his parade.
"You forget your own monster's effect, Slacker!" Chazz retorted causing Jaden to widen his eyes as he remembered what happens after Wingman destroyed a monster.
"I see you remember. When Wingman destroys a monster you take damage equal to the destroyed monsters life points!" When Chazz finished explaining Wingman's effect, Wingman who was standing in front of Jaden with his Dragon-arm pointed mouth open unleashed a torrent of fire upon Jaden.
"Argh!" Yelled Jaden as his life points took a hit.
"Now I'll have my Soldier attack you directly!" Chazz said as his soldier slashed at Jaden earning another scream from this pseudo-phantom pains.
"I'll set two cards face down and end my turn" said Chazz as the two cards appeared.
"Alright, my turn!" Jaden called out, drawing his third card, "Okay, I'll start with summoning Elemental Hero Sparkman in attack mode."
This had lead to a lithely built man in a blue and yellow spandex suit to appear electricity crackling off him (4/1600 Atk/1400 Def). "Now Sparkman! Destroy Chazz's Chthonian Soldier!" Following Jaden's command Sparkman sent a blast of electricity at the Chthonian Soldier destroying it and dealing damage to Chazz's life points.
Unfortunately Chthonian Soldier's blade stuck around and slammed into Jaden, earning a surprised yelp as he too took damage.
"Huh? Why did Jaden take damage as well?" asked Syrus.
Alexis was the one to answer this time: "Chthonian Soldier has the nasty ability of making the opponent take the same amount of damage as its controller when it is destroyed." was the answer Alexis provided, causing Syrus to nod in understanding.
"I'll finish up by throwing down a face down and ending my turn…" as Jaden's turn ended the face down appeared.
"This duel is as good as mine!" Chazz commented, a smirk adorning his face as he drew his third card, "I'll have Flame Wingman destroy you Sparkman and end this duel!"
As Chazz said this Flame Wingman took to the skies once more before diving towards Sparkman.
"That's what you think Chazz, I activate Mirror Gate!" Jaden countered, activating the face down trap, to the surprise of Chazz and those watching.
"Jaden is one lucky son of a gun," Aisu commented, shaking his head a smirk adorning his lips.
"Why?" Syrus questioned, though Jaden answered this on his own.
"With Mirror Gate, once you declare an attack on one of my Elemental Heroes, the monsters are swapped and you take damage Chazz!"
Just as Jaden said, Wingman brightened up and his wing was white once more, while Sparkman turned darker in coloring their sides of the field reversed. Wingman then crashed into Sparkman, destroying him and damaging Chazz.
"Don't forget Wingman's super power Chazz!" Jaden grinned as Wingman blasted Chazz with a torrent of flames dealing damage to him once more.
"Tch." Chazz grunted in annoyance at falling for that trap, "I activate Chthonian Blast; since a monster on my side of the field was destroyed this will destroy a monster with the lowest attack on the field and deal half its attack as damage to you, and since Wingman is the only monster on the field he is destroyed!"
As Chazz had said when the trap revealed itself Flame Wingman ended up self-destructing dealing damage to Jaden.
"Next I'll activate Call of the Haunted to revive my Chthonian Soldier, but he isn't staying for long as I now sacrifice him for Mefist the Infernal General" Chazz said, revealing the trap leading to the short revival of his soldier as it was replaced by a darkly armored horseman wielding a great axe (5/1800 Atk/1700 Def).
"You're finished on my next turn slacker!" Chazz said angrily as his turn ended.
Aisu, Alexis, and Bastion had all face-palmed at Chazz's stupidity as he could have attacked Jaden with his Soldier and won.
"Alright this is it, draw!" Jaden yelled before looking at the card he just drew as he grinned widely, "This duel is in the bag, I activate Monster Reborn and revive my Flame Wingman!"
Flame Wingman appeared onto Jaden's side of the field once more (6/2100 Atk/1200 Def)
"WHAT!" Chazz yelled in shock.
"Now, Flame Wingman; finish this duel with Skydive Scorcher!" Wingman heard Jaden's command as it soared into the air before dive-bombing Mefist engulfed in flames destroying Mefist along with sending a wave of flames at Chazz eliminating Chazz's life points.
"That's game, Chazz!" cheered Jaden pointing his index and middle fingers at Chazz, who looked incredibly angry.
"Don't get cocky, slacker! It was just dumb luck that you won!" yelled Chazz before stomping off, his goons following behind.
"Man, he's such a jerk." Syrus complained, slumping.
"Don't let Chazz get to you, not all Obelisks are like him," said Alexis smiling, while internally commenting on how lucky Jaden was in the end, "By the way, I'm Alexis Rhodes, just call me Alexis. It's a pleasure to meet you all."
The boys all introduced themselves, however Aisu was thinking about something.
"Jaden, what was that card in your hand?" Aisu inquired causing everyone to turn to Jaden wondering that themselves now.
"Winged Kuriboh, why?" Jaden replied, tilting his head.
The reply caused Aisu to shake his head.
"Because, then Chazz wasn't just puffing smoke when he claimed you won because of luck since Winged Kuriboh could have been used to stop you from losing the 2000 life points on Chazz's second turn. Still this makes me want to duel you even more now," Aisu said, wondering how much of Jaden's skill is dependent on luck.
"Then how about you go and borrow Syrus's and we can throw down," Jaden said with a grin on his face, excited for another duel.
"Sorry, Jaden but we'll have to duel tomorrow, as we will need to get ready for the welcoming dinners," replied Aisu after looking at his PDA for the time, revealing that Jaden's and Chazz's duel went on for longer than they thought, as the time now read 5:30 PM.
"Ack! Come on, Sy; we need to get going!" Jaden yelled, knowing full well that it took him and Syrus twenty minutes via running to reach the campus.
He now was running towards the Red Dorms with Syrus following behind. Bastion, Aisu, and Alexis shook their heads before leaving as well heading to their respective dorms for the feasts awaiting them.
Alright before anyone complains most of the Obelisk description was just rewritten from what Duelist379 wrote, who gave me his permission to use, and he had volunteered to beta my Chapters for this fic.
Also the only change is timing so Jaden could finish the duel; I decided to keep the effects the same used for the duel so if you complain about Chthonian Blast's or Flame Wingman's effects or even Jaden not using Winged Kuriboh take it up with the yugioh wikia as that is where I looked up the duel.
