welcome to #budokai
[11:21] <[gTV]Sailor Lead Crow> ♦ And the 39th Budokai continues on with a grudge match! I don't pretend to understand the full history of it, but it's Dr. Xadium vs. Arx Sylvanran!
[11:21] <[gTV]Sailor Lead Crow> ♦ This is being billed as an "I quit!" match! The loser will leave Ten'Aino house forever!
[11:22] <[gTV]Sailor Lead Crow> ♦ the Irony is, Xadium's opponent was trained by his wife!
[11:22] <Arx Sylvanran> Current wife.
[11:22] *** Arx Sylvanran [firstname.lastname@example.org] has joined #budokai
[11:22] <[gTV]Sailor Lead Crow> ♦ Well it's no secret Xadium's had a rather useless love life, having been divorced twice!
[11:23] *** @Doctor Xadium [email@example.com] has joined #budokai
[11:23] *** spiritflame sets mode +o @Doctor Xadium
[11:23] <+Luna-P> y0 @Doctor Xadium
[11:23] <@Dоcтоʀ Xᴧᴅוυᴍ> Can we just not... talk about this :P
[11:24] <[gTV]Sailor Lead Crow> ♦ Hey, one of your Ex's, our Boss, Aino Minako, has a more miserable romantic streak than you, so it's fair game!
[11:24] * C'est_la_V breaks in to thr boradcast to note she's doing JUST FINE. This week she's engaged to Trunks Briefs of the Capsule corporation!
[11:25] <[gTV]Sailor Lead Crow> ♦ Yeah that's going to end well.
[11:25] <Arx Sylvanran> Oh, but it's all about this... father.
[11:25] * Arx Sylvanran is now known as Noriko Xadium
[11:26] <Noriko Xadium> This... my other face... finally... I can face you eye-to-eye.
[11:27] * Noriko Xadium still looks like Arx, but her whole demeanor has changed.
[11:27] <Noriko Xadium> I died because of you. My BROTHER died because of you.
[11:28] <Noriko Xadium> Only the blade gifted to me by rei.bot allowed my spirit to survive, to crawl out of hell and find purchase in the mortally wounded body of She who would become Arx Sylvanran.
[11:29] * Noriko Xadium withdraws Invictus from its sheath... "and now, its twin, Invictus, will finally set everything right."
[11:29] <@Dоcтоʀ Xᴧᴅוυᴍ> Noriko. Why do you blame ME for what happened.
[11:29] <Noriko Xadium> ...
[11:30] <Noriko Xadium> For one thing, no one will tell me what happened! All I know is that one moment I found my whole timeline being eaten out from under me, my whole life being unwritten!
[11:30] <Noriko Xadium> My brother and I... were being erased! Only he did not have the benefit of rei.bot of the future's blessing to save him.
[11:31] <Noriko Xadium> I was abandoned. Thrown away. Left for dead. Ignored. Forgotten. Everything-- everyone is gone. I can get no answers-- not from you, not from her, not from anyone who knows anything about that sad debacle. My brother is dead. My past is a shattered ruin that never was, yet which forever will be my own personal hell. Trapped as I am by my will to live despite it all and my morals, and my ethics, I can get no recompense, no justice, no vengeance, no satisfaction of any kind. All I am left with is a hollow, aching pain in my hearts that never, ever goes away. All I have left is this unanswerable pain-- and this one, sad, final battle that will either end my suffering... or end you.
[11:32] <@Dоcтоʀ Xᴧᴅוυᴍ> I was just as much a victim as you.
[11:32] <Noriko Xadium> LIAR.
[11:32] <Noriko Xadium> you could have fought, done something!
[11:33] * Noriko Xadium is trembling now.
[11:33] <Noriko Xadium> you could have SAID NO.
[11:33] <Noriko Xadium> DENIED IT.
[11:33] <Noriko Xadium> FOUGHT for what was IMPORTANT.
[11:33] * Noriko Xadium draws Invictus back, rage getting the better of her.

[11:34] * @Doctor Xadium refuses to draw his blade
[11:34] <@Dоcтоʀ Xᴧᴅוυᴍ> Noriko... there are some battles you can't win.
[11:34] <Noriko Xadium> I don't believe that! I don't believe you tried at all!
[11:35] <Noriko Xadium> You just rolled over, let us die, and moved on to your Hick Redneck Redhead!
[11:35] <@Dоcтоʀ Xᴧᴅוυᴍ> She was your TEACHER!
[11:35] <Noriko Xadium> Not mine! Arx's!
[11:35] <@Dоcтоʀ Xᴧᴅוυᴍ> Tch.
[11:35] ☼ Scouter indicates Doctor Xadium has HP and MP levels of 250 / 1001!!
[11:36] <Noriko Xadium> Oh... you'll fight for her.
[11:36] <@Dоcтоʀ Xᴧᴅוυᴍ> Noriko, you don't know what happened. Stop this.
[11:36] <Noriko Xadium> No. This is the Budokai. The Crucible. The stage upon which the drama of the future is set.
