bopdog111: Okay everyone... This is the fic that started it all.
Ulrich362: Exactly. What started as a single review led to quite a bit of co-writing and this was the beginning.
bopdog111: And me, and Ulrich's most longest, and most working fic. But the original was never fully released due to several reasons... But me, and Ulrich decided to remake it that he dubbed it will be 'greater then Daughter' itself.
Ulrich362: Well, we're better writers than we were before and as long as we use what we learned I combination with some of those old ideas I think it just might be that good. So... ready to start?
bopdog111: Yup if you are to get the remake of my first Arc-V idea, and our official cowriting fic off the ground.
Disclaimer: We don't own Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V but we own the OCs!
Ulrich362: Enjoy the chapter, and the fic.
In a school was a young boy with brown hair looking over some cards during some free time.
"Hey Leo." called a male voice. "Are you busy?"
Hearing that the boy Leo looked over. It was a blonde girl holding her own cards. "Do you want to have a friendly match?"
"Hi Claire. Sure I can though... I still couldn't get any Pendulum Cards." Leo told her.
The girl, Claire, just smiled. "You'll get some one day, I'm sure of it."
Leo smiled back nodding as they brought from desks together to start.
"You want to go first this time?" Claire asked.
"Ladies first." Leo answered.
"Such a gentleman, some special lady is going to be real lucky Leo." Claire smiled.
Leo blushed hearing that.
Claire 1st Turn:
Claire giggled slightly at that while drawing.
"Ok, I'll start with the spell Wattcine." Claire mentioned. "So now if a Thunder monster deals damage I gain those points."
Continuous Spell Card
When a Thunder-Type monster you control inflicts Battle Damage to your opponent, gain Life Points equal to the damage inflicted.
"Then I'll set two cards and summon Wattgiraffe in attack mode to end my turn."
This card can attack your opponent directly. When this card inflicts Battle Damage to your opponent by a direct attack, your opponent cannot activate Spells, Traps, Spell/Trap effects or Monster Cards effect until the End Phase of this turn.
Leo 1st Turn:
Leo drew looking over his hand.
"Well... I'll start by summoning Photon Thrasher." Leo said placing the card down.
Cannot be Normal Summoned/Set. Must first be Special Summoned (from your hand) while you control no monsters. Cannot attack if you control another monster.
"I can summon this card from my hand while I have no monsters in play." Leo explained before placing another monster down, "And then I'll summon Panther Warrior from my hand."
This card cannot declare an attack unless you Tribute 1 monster.
Claire nodded with a smile. "Alright."
"Next I'll activate Lightwave Tuning." Leo said using a spell.
Normal Spell Card
Select 1 Level 4 LIGHT monster you control. It is treated as a Tuner monster while it is face-up on the field.
"With it a level 4 light monster on my field counts as a Tuner in play." Leo said to her, "That lets me use Photon Thrasher with Panther Warrior for a Synchro Summon."
As he said this he shifted the two to his graveyard before looking into his Extra Deck.
"That's a strong start." Claire admitted.
"Well now I'll summon Crimson Blader." Leo said placing a card of a red warrior wielding two swords on the field.
1 Tuner + 1 or more non-Tuner monsters
If this card destroys an opponent's monster by battle and sends it to the Graveyard: Your opponent cannot Normal or Special Summon Level 5 or higher monsters during their next turn.
"That's a strong monster." Claire smiled. "Too bad I had a trap facedown."
As she said that Claire revealed Wattcancel.
Counter Trap Card
When your opponent would Normal or Special Summon a monster: Discard 1 "Watt" monster; negate the Summon and destroy it.
"I discard another Wattgiraffe to negate the summon and destroy your monster."
"Huh?" Leo asked in shock before placing his Synchro Monster in the graveyard.
Claire frowned. "Are you ok?"
"Yeah. I didn't expect that." Leo answered.
"I end with 2 cards down." Leo told her.
Claire 2nd Turn:
Claire drew her card only to frown.
"I summon Wattsquirrel." Claire mentioned.
This card can attack twice during each Battle Phase. If this card battles, negate the effects of the monster it battled after damage calculation (including in the Graveyard).
"Wattgiraffe attacks you directly."
Leo counted down his Life Point counter. (Leo: 2800)
"Wattcine gives dee the points you lost." Claire mentioned marking her own points. (Claire: 5200)
"Then Wattsquirrel can attack twice."
"And due to Wattgiraffe I can't stop her." Leo said marking down the points. (Leo: 1400)
"I end my turn." Claire finished sadly. "I wanted this to be fun but I don't think you're having any."
Leo 2nd Turn:
"Actually I am." Leo said to her with a smile.
"Oh... ok then." Claire smiled.
Leo drew before saying, "And I think I'll be playing one of my favs because in order to activate this card I have to reveal it."
"That... no way!" Claire cried in shock. "You actually drew it?"
Leo revealed the card to be Rank-Up-Magic The Seventh One, "Luck is a part of dueling, and it helped me here. I activate the Seventh One!"
Rank-Up-Magic The Seventh One
Normal Spell Card
To activate this card, you must draw it for your normal draw in your Draw Phase, reveal it, and keep it revealed until the start of Main Phase 1. At the start of your Main Phase 1 that same turn, you can: Special Summon, from your Extra Deck or Graveyard, 1 monster that has a number between "Number 101" and "Number 107" in its name, except "Number C" monsters, then Xyz Summon, from your Extra Deck, 1 "Number C" monster with the same number in its name as the first monster, by using it as the Xyz Material. You can only apply the effect of "Rank-Up-Magic - The Seventh One" once per Duel.
"So now I can summon the card of my favorite Barian Emperor, Number 104: Masquerade!" Leo said placing a blue, and white monster on the field.
Number 104: Masquerade
3 Level 4 monsters
During either player's Battle Phase, when an opponent's monster effect is activated: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card; negate the activation, and if you do, inflict 800 damage to your opponent. Once per turn: You can send the top card of your opponent's Deck to the Graveyard.
Claire smiled. "I guess that's it?"
"Well afterwards Seventh One evolves Masquerade into a monster one rank higher." Leo said placing a card on top, "And that is Chaos Number 104: Umbral Horror Masquerade!"
He placed an evil version of Masquerade on the mat.
Number C104: Umbral Horror Masquerade
4 Level 5 monsters
When this card is Special Summoned: You can target 1 Spell/Trap Card on the field; destroy that target. If this card has "Number 104: Masquerade" as an Xyz material, it gains this effect.
● Once per turn, during either player's turn, when a monster effect is activated on your opponent's side of the field: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card; negate the activation, then you can send 1 random card from your opponent's hand to the Graveyard, and if you do, halve your opponent's Life Points.
"Well... there goes Wattcine." Claire chuckled.
She placed it in her graveyard.
"And now Masquerade will take down Wattsquirrel!" Leo said to her.
Claire put her monster in the graveyard and marked her points. (Claire: 4300)
"I end my turn." Leo ended.
Claire 3rd Turn:
Claire drew her card and smiled. "Looks like I win Leo, I summon Wattkiwi."
"Watt" monsters you control cannot be destroyed by battle while they are attacking.
Leo blinked seeing that.
"Level three Wattkiwi tune with level four Wattgiraffe." Claire smiled. "I Synchro Summon Watthydra!"
1 "Watt" Tuner + 1 or more non-Tuner Thunder-Type monsters
This card can attack your opponent directly. When this card inflicts Battle Damage to your opponent by a direct attack, choose 1 card in your Deck and remove it from play. Add that card to your hand during your 2nd Standby Phase after activating this effect.
"Oh." Leo said now getting it.
Claire nodded. "Watthydra, attack Leo directly!"
Leo emptied his Counter, "That's game." (Leo: 0000)
"Yeah, it is. But you did a great job Leo." Claire smiled.
Leo nodded at that taking his cards, "I might need to improve my deck more."
"Improve it however you want, once a loser always a loser." smirked a male voice.
That made Leo frowned looking down.
"Just ignore him." Claire mentioned. "Come on Leo, I have an idea."
Hearing that he looked up to her. Claire smiled gently. "I think there are some new cards and maybe if we both look we'll find some Pendulum ones."
"Okay." Leo nodded with a small smile taking his deck, and begin to walk before a foot tripped him causing him to cry out landing on the floor hard with his deck scattered.
"Leo!" cried a second female voice. "Are you alright?"
Leo slowly raise up shaking his hand to get rid of the dizziness, "I think so."
The girl frowned before turning to the person who tripped Leo. "What was that for?"
"Him being a loser." the boy from before said before walking off.
"Just ignore him." Claire mentioned. "Come on, the three of us can go pick up some new cards together right Emily?"
The other girl nodded as Leo started to pick up his cards. Emily and Claire knelt down to help pick them up unaware that a figure was watching through the window before vanishing. With them picked up the trio walked off to somewhere.
"I'm sorry Leo." Claire frowned. "Maybe if I let you summon Crimson Blader he wouldn't have done that."
"He would either way." Leo frowned looking down.
He felt someone hug him. Emily was gently hugging him. "Don't let him get to you. Call it woman's intuition if you want but I have a feeling something amazing will happen to you soon."
Leo soon smiled nodding. Emily and Claire smiled at that before walking into the card shop with Leo. Leo looked around before seeing some Xyz Monsters looking seeing monsters that have Masquerade with it.
"Huh, no way!" Emily cried in shock. "They actually have a copy?"
Hearing that Leo looked. Emily was staring with her eyes wide at a copy of Harpie's Pet Phantasmal Dragon. "I've been trying to find this one forever!"
"How much is it?" Leo asked her.
Emily looked only to sigh. "Too much."
Leo looked to see it's over $30.00.
"I can't spend that much on one card... no matter how much it would help my deck." Emily sighed. "Are you two having any luck?"
Then she sees Leo pulling out some cash before grabbing the Xyz monster.
"Leo?" Emily asked in shock. "What about you?"
"Friends comes first then I." Leo answered to her.
Emily frowned. "Leo..."
"It's alright Emily." Leo told her with a soft smile.
Emily smiled with a few tears in her eyes. "Thank you..."
Leo nodded paying for the Xyz Monster before handing it to her. Emily took it before hugging him. "Thank you Leo."
Leo hugged her back.
"You're a kind young man. Here, take this pack on the house." mentioned an old man behind the counter.
"Hm?" Leo asked seeing this, "Uh I am just helping a friend out."
"I can see that, it warms my heart to see a kind young man like you." the man smiled.
Leo hearing that nodded before taking the pack.
"Is there anything else I can help you with?" the man inquired to the three of them.
"Claire?" Leo asked her.
"I think I'm ok for now... my Watt cards are doing pretty well." Claire smiled.
"Thanks sir." Leo said to the man.
"Anytime." the man smiled.
With that the kids exited the store.
"What do you think you got Leo? Maybe there are Pendulum Cards in there." Claire smiled.
"Let's see." Leo said opening the pack saying to them, "Let's see... I got Dark Magician, Mirror Force, Polymerization, Red-Eyes Black Dragon, Elemental HERO Wingman, Number 14: Greedy Sarameya, and these last two..."
He closed his eyes at the last two before opening to see only to frown.
"No luck?" Emily asked.
"No." Leo answered shaking his head.
"I'm sorry Leo." Claire frowned.
"It's fine. I'll have better luck." Leo assured them with a smile.
"... I still wish you'd take my spares." Emily frowned. "I have extra copies of the two magicians if you want them."
"Their your's to use Emily." Leo told her.
"I guess..." Emily sighed. "Well what do you two want to do now?"
"You two can come with me to my house." Leo said to them smiling, "I'm sure Dad, and Mum wouldn't mind."
"That sounds good to me." Claire smiled.
They walked off as the figure from before was watching. When they turned over a corner they didn't expect to see Police, and an Investigation Team was there.
"Huh? Leo did something happen?" Emily asked.
"I don't know... What happened?" Leo asked worried as they got over.
"Excuse me sir, what's going on?" Claire asked.
An Officer turned before saying, "This isn't any of your business kids."
Leo noticing paramedics taking a woman widen his eyes, "Mum!? Is she okay!?"
"These are your parents?" asked another officer.
"Yes sir." Leo nodded worried, "What happened to them?"
"I'm sorry... it must have been a thief, the house was torn apart... and we found their bodies inside." the officer answered apologetically.
"Wait... what? T-T-They are..." Leo trailed off with building tears.
"I'm sorry son." the officer whispered as Emily and Claire both embraced Leo.
"No... no... No!" Leo screamed upon realizing what happened.
"Sir, I found something in the house." an officer mentioned.
Hearing that the officer walked over to see. It was a crumpled up piece of paper, as though someone had just grabbed it only to ball it up and throw it away. The officer un-crumbled to see what it is. It was a birth certificate, for a girl named Amy.
"So the Logans had a daughter?" the officer asked.
"She isn't in any official records, this is the first I'm hearing of this." the other officer answered.
The officer nodded hearing that.
Leo meanwhile was crying from the loss of his parents. Claire was rubbing his back gently as Emily held his hand.
"Leo... can we do anything?" Emily asked uncertainly.
"I want them back..." Leo cried.
"Young man, do you have any other living relatives?" the officer asked him.
"N-No." Leo sobbed shaking his head.
The officer frowned before nodding. "In that case you need to come with me so we can get you registered at the local orphanage."
Leo sniffed before getting up, "Claire, Emily..."
"We're right here Leo." Claire told him.
He hugged them close to him.
"We always will be, we're your friends." Emily smiled gently.
With that they walked with the officer. He led them to a small orphanage where an older woman was talking to a group of children and teenagers of varying ages.
"... just be patient, someone will arrive one day and you'll have a family again." she smiled gently.
"Ahem." the officer cleared his throat.
The older woman paused before turning. "Oh, officer is there a problem?"
"I brought someone new." the officer answered.
"Someone... oh!" the woman said in shock. "Are they alright? They weren't hurt were they?"
"He's alright. He wasn't anywhere near the crime." the officer answered as Leo slowly walked up.
"Young man, can you tell me your name?" the older woman asked.
"L-Leo Logan miss." Leo answered wiping his eyes.
"Well Leo, I know it isn't what you want but you can call this your home... we'll do what we can to make it feel like a safe place." the older woman told him.
Leo nodded hearing that.
"Is there anything we can do?" Claire asked him.
"Figure out how it happened..." Leo answered hugging her.
Emily nodded. "We'll tell you if we figure out anything."
Leo nodded. Over the last few hours Leo was introduced to the staff, and kids, and after dinner was in his room looking up at the ceiling, 'Mum... Dad...'
That's when something hit his window. Startled he went, and looked. It was a young boy about his age with a cruel smirk, the same boy who tripped him. Terrified Leo stepped away.
"Get down here Logan, we need to talk. It's about your parents." the boy told him.
Hearing that Leo gasped before running downstairs outside.
"Is it true?" the boy asked.
"True what?" Leo asked with tears.
"Someone shot them over some card?" he asked.
"Some card?" Leo asked, "I-I haven't heard the full story."
"You didn't know that?" the boy questioned. "Weird."
Leo looked down with tears. The boy looked uncertain before glancing around nervously. "I need to go."
"Okay." Leo nodded to him, "Be careful... Sawatari."
The boy flinched at that only for his eyes to widen before shoving Leo as a gunshot rang out.
"Ah!" Leo cried landing on the ground.
"Stupid brat, I told him to get the card not chat with you all day." mentioned an older voice as Leo noticed Sawatari was on the ground not moving.
"S-Sawatari!? Are you okay!?" Leo cried shaking him, "Sawatari wake up!"
"He's lucky, I hit the spine." the older voice stated. "He'll be alive but won't be walking or moving again. Now unless you want to join mommy and daddy you'll hand over the dragon little boy."
Hearing that Leo looked over to see who said that. It was a figure in a cloak pointing a gun at him. "Last chance, hand over the dragon card or you'll take a bullet between the eyes."
"D-Dragon what dragon?" Leo asked terrified before handing his deck to him, "H-Here..."
The man took the deck before quickly looking through it only for his eyes too narrow. "Is this a joke? Where's the Frozen Heart Ritual Dragon?"
"F-Frozen what?" Leo asked stepping back afraid.
"Don't play games with me, I know you have..." the man started before someone suddenly grabbed Leo's deck and Leo before carrying him off.
"W-Whoa!" Leo cried at this.
"Listen to me very carefully Leo Logan... time is of the utmost importance right now." the person told him. "Once I give you the key you must find Yuya Sakaki... your life hangs in the balance as do the lives of everyone you care about."
"W-Who are you?" Leo asked him.
"A friend... now take this card and go." the figure said handing Leo a Duel Monsters card. "The worlds are in danger and you're the only one who might be able to save them."
With that Leo lost consciousness.
Leo winced before opening his eyes only to see an unfamiliar city and he was all alone.
"Huh... Where am..." He asked looking around.
"Paradise City." mentioned a female voice. "Are you ok?"
"Huh?" Leo looked.
It was a little girl with red hair. "Did you fall and hit your head?"
"I... I don't know." Leo admitted rubbing his head.
The girl frowned. "Come on, maybe Yuya or Zuzu could help."
"Y-Yuya...?" Leo asked hearing that, "Where have I heard that name before?"
"Yuya should be at You Show. I can show you where it is." the girl smiled. "My name's Allie."
"Leo... Leo Logan." Leo said before walking with her.
She smiled as they walked down the street.
"Sir... something has happened." stated a man in a suit talking to a silver-haired young man in glasses with a red scarf.
"What is it, Claude?" the man asked him.
"There was a massive spike in energy, dimensional transportation energy." Claude answered.
"So someone from a Different Dimension just arrived." the man said before instructing, "Find out who it is."
"Of course." Claude nodded.
