A/N: Hey everyone, Master of Death and Darkness here again with another new story, this time one for Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's. Now first of all this isn't really the first chapter. It's just going to be a list of self-made cards my character, a Self-Insert, will use in the story (it will be updated at later points). If anyone reading this knows of the .hack/G.U. video games and characters, you'll easily recognize the cards I'll be using. Also, I just want to note that I got the idea to do this story from a story called "Stardust Accelerator: Rise of the Earthbounds" by Fenikkusumaru. Wow, seems like I'm getting story ideas from several currently-existing stories. But I'm hoping it doesn't appear like I'm stealing the stories, so I apologize if anyone thinks that way. Also, just like my two GX stories (which I have actually canceled, though I will be restarting Duel Academia Legends some time), this story will be based on the Japanese version of 5D's. The biggest problem with this one though is I don't really have anyone to use as a source for subtitles and so have to use several different sites to get subbed episodes (damn you, 4Kids). The major issue with this is that, since all the sites that have subbed episodes of 5D's don't have them uploaded by one person every time, there may be a few cases of inconsistency so please bare with it. Now then, time to show you the cards my self-insert will be using.

Disclaimer: I do NOT own the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise or its characters! I DO, however, own the cards listed below (just the card ideas. original ideas belong to the .hack/Conglomerate) and my Self-Insert, Kurtis Goodhew.

A/N: So that's my self-made card list for the time being. I'll also be using other existing cards (TCG, OCG, and manga-only cards included), but I'm not sure which ones at the moment. I will add them to my next list when I update my self-insert's deck and will also list information of the cards at the end of each chapter until then. Hope you all enjoy the story!

Yami = DARK
Hikari = LIGHT
Honō = FIRE
Mizu = WATER
Magician = Spellcaster
