Disclaimer: I don't own Yugioh GX. And I found all of these sayings in the back of a Webster's Dictionary, which I don't own either. Seriously. It's my mom's dictionary, I'm just borrowing it.

Year Two Extra 12: As the Saying Goes

Amor vincit omnia(Love conquers all)

In the end, all they have is each other; they may be broken and scarred, but there's a shoulder to lean on and a hand to hold and somehow, it's enough.

Belle laide (A beautiful ugly woman)

Syrus wishes he could forget how Lia looked during that duel; she was so beautiful that it ruined her- she became ugly in her perfection.

Concordia discors(Discordant harmony)

Hiding what happened from Atticus and the others is hard, but it has to be done – no matter the tense air that results.

De mortuis nil nisi bonum(Of the dead, say nothing but good)

Vina presses against Topace's haunch because now, he's all she has left.

Exceptio probat regulam de rebus non exceptis(The exception establishes the rule as to things not excepted)

Atticus and Jasmine and Mindy can never be told because they would never understand; they've never looked into the eyes of the Light, and known what it feels like when sanity unravels from their minds.

Fuit Ilium(Troy has been)

Once Upon a Time, there was a terrible war, and a world fell beneath the crushing weight of Ruin...

Gens du monde (People of the world)

Below them, Earth gleams like a gem, and though they can't see them, a million billion people go about their lives.

Homme d'affaires(A man of business)

There is a change that comes over Jaden when he duels – from carefree to serious, from silly to strong; He is half aware of this change, because with each duel, ignorance leaves him just a little bit more.

Inter nos(Between ourselves)

It's just easier, being with each other now; because when they're together in one place, holding hands and feeling each other's heartbeats, the pieces come back together, not in the same shape, but into something new entirely.

Justitia omnibus(Justice for all)

...And so it was that the Scales were dangerously tipped, and the Great Mother called for a champion to arise to defend the mortals threatened by the whims of the immortals...

Lapsus calami(Slip of the pen)

Lia doesn't keep a diary; she takes pictures instead, of everything and everyone who strikes her fancy, but she can't for the life of her understand why Aster keeps popping up in them.

Multum in parvo (Much in little)

Zane's body burns under Alexis gaze was he walks away from them all and some part of him shivers at all the words that are spoken in those eyes.

Non omnia possumus omnes(We can't all (do) all things)

Chazz, Syrus and Hassleberry know that Jaden is a hero in different ways: Hassleberry knows Jaden is a hero to look up to, Syrus knows Jaden is a hero who is being stretched too thin, and Chazz knows Jaden is a hero who is dangerously closing to falling as more weight is piled on his shoulders.

Oderint dum metuant (Let them hate, so long as they fear)

In their last moments of consciousness before the quiet black of oblivion, Atticus will be dumbfounded by the emergence of the Supreme King, and Chazz will, for once, curse his foresight.

Pollice verso(With thumb turn/With an expression or gesture of condemnation)

...Behind lay the smoking ruins of a once great kingdom, damned by the jealous love of a weak heart...

Quod erat demonstrandum(Which was to be proved)

Alexis and Chazz never believe they can beat the Light, right up until Jaden make them remember that they already have.

Rem acu tetigisti(You have touched the point with a needle/You have hit the nail on the head)

" You know sometimes, " Mindy muses, " I think Lia might actually be scared of love."

Semper fidelis(Always faithful)

He can't remember her name, he can't remember her face, and all that he can remember is that not remembering means he has broken a promise more sacred than any that have come before it.

Tout comprendre c'est tout pardonner(To understand all is to forgive all)

Alexis remembers the way Aster acted as a buffer between her and Lia on that night so long ago, and quietly hands him one of the booster packs.

Ua mau ke ea o ka aina i ka pono (The life of the land is established in righteousness)

...The curse still lives, even to this day, and until the rightful King is returned to his throne, the world must remain in shadow, so mote it be.

Vive la reine (Long live the queen)

Vina knows the beginning; Jaden knows the middle; but only one knows the end, and she does not know she knows it.

Wanderjahr (A year of wandering)

It will be years later, but Jaden will eventually find his way to all of them, at one time or another, on his journey across many earths.

The K is a lie

The X is also a lie.

As is the Y.

And the Z. The Z is a total lie.

And yeah. Those are pieces of 'the story' that Amethyst Cat and Jaden were going on about in 'Tempting Offers'

There are hints at future events and things about what the group has gone through. This chapter is for them.

And I will be posting the first chapter of Year Three (yet unwritten but getting done tomorrow because I need tonight to recharge) on Friday. I'll try and stockpile a little, but honestly? The pressure of maintaining a weekly update will probably serve me better than having a pile of pre-written chapters to fall back on.

So see you soon for the opening rally of Year Three Part 1: Journeys!
