[Happy Synchroshipping Saturday! I tried to write a duel this time. I hope it’s okay. These guys yell their commands too much. My !/1 key feels violated. Enjoy~!]
“I’ll end my turn with a face-down. Had enough?” Yusei smirked.
Atem chuckled. “Not quite, I draw!” He looked up at the Stardust Dragon on Yusei’s side of the field. To the right of it was Stardust Xiaolong, perhaps he could use this to his advantage.
”From my hand, I’m activating the Soul Exchange magic card! With its power, I can use one of your monsters in a Tribute Summon. So I’m using your Stardust Xiaolong! I sacrifice both him and my Beta the Magnet Warrior to bring out Dark Magician!” Atem declared. “However, due to this card’s effect, I must skip over my Battle Phase this turn. Your move.”
“I draw!” Yusei glanced at the cards in his hand. “I activate the Spell Card Fighting Spirit! This card raises my Stardust’s attack by 300 points, enough to wipe out your Magician. Stardust Dragon, attack with Cosmic Flare!”
Atem watched his Dark Magician get sent to the Grave and his life points drop by 300. His eyes locked with Yusei’s and he smirked. “You’ve activated my Trap Card!” The face-down card in front of him revealed itself. “Rope of Life! This activates when one of my monsters is sent to the Graveyard by battle. Now all I have to do is discard my hand and I can bring him back from the Grave! Not only that but he gains 800 attack points! Thank you, Yusei, I really do appreciate the gift.”
“I guess I’ll just throw two cards face-down and end my turn.”
The former King of Games let out a content ‘Hmm’ as he drew his next card. “I think I’ll go right ahead and attack your Stardust Dragon. Dark Magician, attack with Dark Magic Attack!”
The mage raised his scepter and a blast erupted from the holograms. As the smoke cleared, Yusei’s Stardust was still standing. “This cannot be!”
“Oh, it can.” Yusei took Fighting Spirit from its slot and placed it in his Graveyard. “Due to my Fighting Spirit Spell Card, I can send it to the graveyard in place of my dragon.”
Atem watched as Yusei’s life points dropped by 500 and glaced at his own count. “Now we’re even at 600 points.” He smiled. “We’ve been at this for an hour. We could just going on and on.”
“…and on.” Yusei agreed. “But not if I activate my face-down.”
Atem’s eyes widened. “What?”
“I activate Ring of Destruction and I choose to destroy Dark Magician, dealing both of us 3300 points of damage.”
Both men grunted as the last of their life points were drained. The holograms faded and they walked toward each other.
“You’re an exceptional duelist, Yusei.” Atem said, shaking Yusei’s hand.
Yusei grinned. “Same to you. You aren’t King of Games for nothing.”
“Indeed.” Silence hung in the air a little awkwardly until Atem spoke again. “You look damn sexy when you duel.”
Yusei just laughed and kissed him.
