I'll make note that if you guys do make new logos make sure that they're all renders so you don't have the solid blue background just there on the black ones of the other themes.

Alois raised an eyebrow as the littler princess seemed to not think he was telling the full truth. While it was true he probably had other stories, prior to meeting the team, they were mostly to do with either bandits or, again, his general day to day living. Neither seemed particularly fun to add though, even in jest, and so he didn't. However, as the girl said that he wasn't stuck at home he merely muttered, "oh is that what it sounded like to you?" The boy was not confined to his house, sure. But home was a lot more than one's house, and while he might not have had an entire kingdom that would try to stop him from leaving, it was still not the smartest of decisions to be un-stuck. Nevertheless, he listened to the girl as she told her story. He was, admittedly, confused, horrified, intrigued and curious as the girl went on about her story. As she finished, he digested the tale for a bit, before finally asking, "but wait, how did the rabbit-" but was cut off as the group made it to camp, where they were greeted with new faces.
Meanwhile, as the large armored man "reported his status," to the chipper girl she merely slowed down her pacing. Slowly patting the man's armor she said, "good, good. Good to hear you're good." With a smile on her face, she gave the man two thumbs up, before resuming her original pace. It was then, that the group had made their way to their encampment, to which Tsetseg had turned around as they heard a friendly voice come from within the camp. As the girl in glasses made her greeting to the archer, Tsetseg countered with her own thumbs up saying, "Hange! My other favorite person! I'm doing good goodly good!" Once that was done with, Urvan had then called some of the others away, including Hange, which left the archer with only Shaoran as a familiar face with her. However, the boy then decided to give the group a tour to which she simply said, "oh yes, leave all the explaining things to Shaoran. He's like, really smart and stuff, and reads a lot. Which must mean he knows stuff!"
Alois had a raised a curious eyebrow at this girl's strange energy, but didn't comment any further on it, merely following the tour guide around. He was a bit curious as to what these people sold here, and was actually somewhat intrigued by the weird trade system they probably had going. He wasn't so intrigued that he was going to comment any further on it, but the interest was there. However, as the tour had come to an end, he could suddenly feel a strange presence watching him. Glancing around, the boy saw that the littler princess's piercing eyes were on him, giving him a strange look. It was strange and with purpose. And while he couldn't read it entirely, he could tell the girl definitely wanted him to do something. "What? What are you giving me that look for. Stop. It's weird." Regardless of his aversion, though, the boy didn't really have anything else to do and followed the princess along on her adventurers. Though, were he asked to lift books, he'd merely say, "oh, sorry, I'm not doing lifting practice right now. But hey, it's never too early for you to start."
Eventually dinner had come and though not much had happened during it, the group was eventually summoned by Urvan to go talk about something. Tsetseg had trailed a bit behind the rest of the group, as she wasn't directly summoned, but Alois had moved along with his group. Once there, the group learned more about what was going on. As it turned out they had managed to slay a leader of some large bandit organization, and had apparently incurred the wrath of other bandits in the region. While that was mildly amusing to the fighter, what wasn't was who supposedly hired them to kill the group in the first place. "Oh great, a Galtean noble wants us dead. Now we just need a Locrisian and Isaurian one pissed off at us and we'll get the whole of the continent after us," the boy grimly joked as the explanation happened.
Regardless, once that was done with, the group was lead back to the camp they were staying in. Tsetseg said, "don't worry, I'll navigate you through our camp as no other navigator has ever navigated before to your sleeping area!" With that, she lead the group along, waving to Hange as she passed her until eventually they had managed to settle down. With that done, Tsetseg seemed to bustle off, going to her own devices for the moment.
As the littler princess and the flower knight decided to go and deliberate on the matter at hand, Alois merely gave them a way and said, "good luck." With that out of the way, his attention turned to someone else. Ever since his talk with the littler princess, there was something about it that he couldn't shake. The description that he gave on person in particular, that made him start to wonder something about them. It wasn't as though he had actively been watching her since then, but the moments he had paid attention his thoughts didn't seem any less wrong. And so, with the free time upon them and the new development that the group had been presented with, he felt it a good time to go talk with her about it. Picking himself up, Alois walked over to the crown princess herself and said, "hey there Cat. Don't seem like you've got too much to do right now other than brood so, wanna spar instead?"
While Tsetseg had claimed to be going about her business elsewhere, in actuality, she had circled back to where the group was. Keeping herself as best hidden as she could, the girl analyzed the group and noticed that her prey had been missing from the sight. As such, the hunter scanned the area around until she saw them moving about the rest of the camp. Moving quietly, the girl eventually began to crawl across the ground, steadily and slowly. While their prey seemed to be discussing something heavy, the girl was undeterred in wanting to catch her mark. As such, while Hange was providing to be an excellent distraction for her, the girl eventually pounced. Her hands extended out, ready to wrap around the fluffy tail of Sienna and truly test its fluffiness.

The girl stood up slowly, her body in a bit of pain having just been struck by the white haired man's attack. Her expression revealed surprise at first, having never faced off against a Psychic Duelist before. However, this soon turned from surprise to wonder as she said, "oh, wow, so that's what that feels like." Shaking herself off she then grimaced saying, "no, that was not quite as pleasant as I thought it'd be. And I didn't think it was going to be pleasant. But man, will the guys at the Occult Club not believe this!" It was then that she realized her opponent was taunting her to which she didn't have much of a rebuttal. She merely just shrunk back a bit before looking at him with a bit of spite saying, "w-well, your hair is stupid!" After that she then said, "uh, anyway, my turn!"
Drawing her card, she looked and nodded muttering, "alright we can do this Kaede." Playing it down she announced, "first, I summon Spellbook Magician of Prophecy." With that, a boy in a blue rode with a glowing blue cap appeared, wielding a book radiating with magical energy and having a generally bored expression across his face.
"Now, Hannibal Necromancer attack his Reptile Eurayle." As she declared the attack, the creature roared as it started to gain magical energy around it. As it charged at the reptile, Hibiki decided to act fast and jump after an action card. While he had managed to grab one, it didn't seem to suit what he needed to do at this moment, and thus, the Necromancer managed to bite down on the reptile. As it did, the monster exploded and left behind some residual energy, that all flowed towards the spellcaster.
Hibiki LP: 8000 ---> 6800
After the attack went through, the energy fiery energy started to arc off the creature and swirl into a more rectangular shape. "Next, I activate the other effect of Spellbook of Power. When the monster it was used on destroys another one, I can add one Spellbook Spell Card to my hand. And I choose Spellbook Tower." Once she finished explaining, the fiery energy solidified into a card which the girl then grasped. "Now, with your field wide open Spellbook Magician of Prophecy attacks you directly!" With her attack declared, the magician then opened up his book, drawing energy from it. This time, it formed in the shape of water like orb before being fired towards the white haired man.
Seeming prepared for this, the man then shouted, "I don't NEED an Action Card to screw you over! I activate Damage = Reptile! This lets me summon any Reptile lurking in my deck directly to the field, so long as I've not taken damage less than its own attack points. I summon the 0 ATK Reptilliane Naga, in defense mode!" When he did this, his grin went wild and he was sneering and some shit. "My monster will protect me from your weak direct attacks."
Somewhat flustered from this the girl stammered out, "w-well, I'll just attack it then! So there. Spellbook Magician of Propheceeow," she stopped as she bit her tongue on the name. "Uh, these are a mouthful. Uh, Prophecy Magician, attack his Naga!" With that, the spellcaster nodded, sending out the same orb from before towards the creature.
The man, in turn, began to laugh at the girl's attempt. "You MORON! My Naga can't be destroyed by battle... but your magician will have its attack power reduced to 0 for even trying! Suffer Reptilaianne Curse's effect!"
Kaede LP: 6600---->6200
As the magician had been weakened, snake appeared from out of the bog and bit down on Kaede, which then prompted her to let out a small yelp of pain. "Owow." The girl shook herself off, before continuing her turn. "Well, uh, anyway. I'll just activate this card, Spellbook Tower!" As she played the card, a large silver spiraling tower erupted out from the bog below, dwarfing everything in its sight. "And because of that, Star Hall gets another spell counter added to it, and my monsters another 100 attack points!" As she said this, another faint blue light appeared, connecting itself to another one of them. After that was over, the girl then looked at her cards, looked at the field and then said, "well, uh. I guess it's your turn now, so there."
Spellbook Magician of Prophecy: 0 ATK ----> 100 ATK
Hannibal Necromancer: 2600 ATK ----> 1700 ATK

Mark was a bit on the confused side as the man seemed to bear hug both him and the other girl that was with them, and seemed to be weeping. It was at that point that Mark looked over to the girl who asked about fish and he simply said, "yes, I did say fish. Do you have the 3 of Clubs?" It was at that point that it registered what Wade had said, to which Mark said, "non-dueling? Well, my fine medical practitioner of ocular rodentology allow me to co-" however his attention was then drawn to the statement of the man who had wanted to start moving along. "Yes, if there is any crazy ranch, dip or sauce here it would be much appreciated to see where that is." He then had a look of deep thought cross his face as he muttered, "I wonder if they have chips here."
With that done, the Teacher Doctor had started to show them around the place. Wade had started speaking about the place, and apparently how it was an area of complete abstinence, except in regards to Sophie who apparently gave them out. But because everyone else here was abstinent it seemed to not matter any. Though, that might explain why she seemed to be a bit on the grumpier side of things. "Interesting," the boy mused to himself. It was then that they were presented with a wall. Now, Mark had seen a fair deal of walls in his time. In fact, he had seen some today, not two seconds ago. But this wall took the cake. Probably. It seemed pretty similar to most other walls, at least in terms of function. In fact he was unsure what made this wall more special than other walls, but damn was it a wall. Wade had then tossed a rock all the way to the other base, or at least attempted to. Sadly, unless the rock was capable of faster than light warp drive technology it would not reach. Though, Wade had seemed spirited enough to believe he struck the man, and thus Mark simply laughed a hearty laugh and said, "good rock!"
After a bit more traveling, Timzerothree had eventually lead them to a split where they would be partnering up with others to find dorms. Mark understood perfectly what had to be done and thus looked over to another male that was with them. Seeing the man who had made note of the crazy ranch earlier, he walked over to him and pointed saying, "you there! You seem to know your way around snacks, you also need a roommate. So how about being mine?" Before the male could answer, Mark then immediately followed up with, "by the way, I won't take no for an answer. So thanks! Pleasure to make your acquaintance." He then let out a hearty, "hahahaha!" as he reached up and slung his arm around the man's neck. Walking towards the dorms, attempting to drag the man along with him, he said, "man, we're going to be the best roommate for the days to comes! Maybe even months, or years, or an eternity. Hahahaha!"

As Xia was about to proceed into the stadium proper, a large muscular fellow had passed by her. He seemed to be crying and said something about a monster, before running further away. Xia didn't quite get what the man was going on about and simply continued her walk in. Once at the actual tennis court arena, Xia could look around and see that there were actually a fair number of people gathered and sitting across the walls of the stadium. Her face was one of both shock and wonder as she saw the large of collection of people who were all looking into the area, though was quickly pulled back and refocused onto the field itself as her apparent opponent had spoken to her. As the person introduced herself and seemed to get ready, Xia felt an odd surge of pressure, as if this girl was prepared to kill something. Not perturbed by it though, Xia simply waved and said, "hiii." As the girl taunted her, Xia then said, "I'm ready to start whenever! Let's go, woooo!"
With that, the two were handed rackets, and after a coin toss, the first serve was to go to Valerie. As the girl was given the ball, her look of intensity did not let up a bit. Instead, she tossed the ball to the ground a few times before she seemed to be ready. With a deep breath and strange calm, the girl then tossed the ball into the air. With a graceful form, she jumped after the ball and with a powerful swing struck the ball as it came down on its descent. With its course true, the ball went straight to the ground and with it, the referee then blew his whistle calling, "15, Love."
While the dragon girl was likely wouldn't have hit it anyway, there was something strange about her. She merely stood in the same spot, her eyes only trailing after the ball but not having her body actually move towards it. Furthermore, despite losing the point, she didn't seem at all upset. Xia's opponent seemed to be a tad upset by this as she said, "Heeello, Rama-Indri to blue girl, come in blue girl. I know I'm good but we only just got started here don't quit on me now."
Xia wasn't quite sure what the girl was talking about, nor was she quite what was going on. As such, she was only left with a confused expression on her face as she let out an audible, "huh?"
"Are you going to play or not?"
The half-dragons expression brightened as she nodded saying, "sure! But uh, um, how do you play?"
Valerie seemed to be somewhat exasperated by this as she said, "Oh by Martel she is clueless...wait. You're not from here, are you?"
Without changing her expression, the girl shook her head saying, "not at all!"
"Alllright then, hey, ref, private mode for a few minutes." As she said this, a shimmering cover had appeared over the field, blocking out all outside view from the spectators. Valerie had then walked over to Xia, showing her her watch, albeit it appeared a bit bulkier than Xia's. "Give me your number so I can send you the rules; it'll be faster that way."
"Oh, okay!" As Xia said this, there was a bit of a pause, before the dragon girl said, "how do I do that?" One, likely irritated, explanation later the girl had the rules to the game she was playing on her watch. As she sped read through them all, she seemed to have go from confused, to intrigued, to cheerful, back to confused until she had finally nodded in understanding. "Thanks nice tennis lady!"
"I'm Valerie, don't forget it, it's the most important name you'll need to know here." The girl said with a thumbs up and grin. "Now..." As the covers that block them off had vanished, Xia could feel the same intense pressure from before . "Let's get started." With that, the roars of the cheering crowd could be heard once again as the game picked up speed. Returning to the same form she had prior, Valerie threw the ball in the air once more as she jumped after it, smashing it on its descent. This time, as the ball was hit, Xia took off after where she thought it was going to be and as she swung at it, she merely hit empty air. She had ended up running too far forward, missing the ball completely.
Her form unbroken, Valerie preformed the same serve once more. As Xia went to go intercept it, she ran over to where she had been before and stopped, then back pedaling so as not to be too close this time. Of course, this conscious action had caused her to completely miss any chance of receiving. "40, Love." As the ref said this, Xia tried to get her game face on. She wasn't really sure why the numbers were so weird, but she knew that if she missed the next one she'd lose the game. As such, she tried to think carefully about how to receive the girl's serve when the time came again. Getting prepped to run, this serve seemed much less graceful, as the girl hit it with much less force and less air. Being slightly confused by the serve, Xia hadn't adjusted to it as the ball ended up being much closer to the net then the last three. "Game, Valerie. 1-0" With that, the referee had called the score.
A bit disappointed in herself, Xia pumped herself up for the next round as it was to be her serve. Trying to think about how to do it, Xia figured that tennis lady Valerie was probably much better at this then she, and trying to copy her would be the best of ideas to get this done. As such, the girl tossed the ball into the air and had attempted to jump after it. As the ball begun to come down, the girl had taken a swing at it, striking nothing but air. Having moved forward, the ball landed quite behind the dragon girl causing the referee to merely say. "Fault." Wondering what was going on, the girl looked at the ball quizzically. She didn't know how she failed the serve, but if one didn't succeed at first go, the only thing to do was keep trying until it worked. As such, she tossed the ball up again and when she went to hit it her swing was too early, and the ball simply landed on her head, bouncing off. "Double Fault. 15, Love." Xia's expression seemed a tad defeated, before she attempted pumping herself up again and wondering how it was she was going to hit the ball. As such, she continued to serve, trying many different things. One with jumps. One without. One using the racket underhand. One trying to hit it with a cut. "Game, Valerie. 2 - 0." Despite her best efforts, the girl hadn't managed to hit a single serve.
The crowd, meanwhile, was having a laughing fit at the display. They were entirely too amused with the girl's antics an inability to hit the ball, with some even throwing jeers of their own into the mix. One such one that could be heard was, "man can you believe this? I guess the Queen's standards are really slipping." While the crowd seemed to having a grand old time, Valerie herself seemed to be puzzled. While the pressure from her hadn't let up that much, it was evident that she was in disbelief that someone could be as bad as Xia was. Nevertheless, when her next set came around, she merely served with the same consistency as she had in the first round. Xia had gone after the ball as best she could, and was getting closer to actually returning it then in the first round, but each time she had missed and each time she had been with a similarly jeering laugh. With each serve being a service ace, the referee eventually called, "game. Valerie. 3 -0."
With that, it had become Xia's serve once more. While Xia was definitely a peppy spirit, even she was starting to feel a bit disheartened and uncomfortable at the situation. While normally she was fine with people laughing at her expense this felt somewhat...different, and it didn't do her mood much good. However, she had started the match and wasn't willing to give up. After all, giving up only made people more upset, generally, and being more upset would not do. And so, taking a deep breath, the girl went to serve the ball. Tossing it into the air, she jumped after it again, swinging but not connecting with anything. The ref simply said, "fault," as the game seemed to be going at the same pace it had been her last serve, with the crowd becoming both more amused and bored at the prospect. While Xia wasn't sure what she was doing wrong here, she started to think on it a bit. As the gears started to turn, the girl simply nodded to herself. Clutching the ball tightly, the girl tossed it into the air, much higher then before, and jumped right for it. It was then that the audience was silenced, as one large cracking noise could be heard throughout the stadium, as Xia's racket had connected with the ball. With unimaginable speed and power, the ball launched from where her racket was and struck dead center into her opponent's box, before exploding from the sheer impact of it. There was a silence, as everyone seemed to be a bit shocked, before the referee called, "15, Love."
While she had started to move after it, the suddenness of the serve had caught Valerie off guard. As such, she wasn't able to make it in time, simply staring at the broken ball in mild shock. As one more moment had passed a sound escaped from her. "Ha." It was then followed with a much louder and far more jovial, "hahahahahaha!" The girl was beside herself with laughter, bending down and supporting herself with her hands pushing against her knees. Xia was a bit confused as to what her opponent found so funny, and cocked he head in wonder. As the girl finished her laughing fit, she looked up with a newfound fire in her eyes as she said, "That's more like it! Ref, another ball!" With that, the pressure had felt as intense as it had at the start of the match. Her eyes lighting up, Xia's face absolutely brightened as her opponent seemed excited to continue. With that, the dragon girl was given another ball to serve.
Repeating the same thing she had done last time, the girl smashed the ball equally as hard as before, hitting to the exact same place as before. Being on guard this time, Valerie had managed to intercept the ball in time. However, due to the raw force behind it, her grip fumbled and her arm buckled a bit as the ball hit the racket, causing it to simply bounce out of bounds. "30, Love." The crowd seemed to be far more invested in the match now, as the dragon girl was actually managing to hit the ball. After a few good practice swings of her racket, Valerie had seemed to be ready for the next serve, and thus Xia brought it. A serve entirely the same as the last, Valerie had not only caught up to the ball in time, but with great force of her own, managed to return the ball. Absolutely baffled by this, Xia's run to the ball was clumsy as her face was one of sheer surprise. "15, 30." Xia looked to the girl, victory evident in her opponent's eyes, but attempted the same thing again. She served twice more in the exact same way, and each time it was returned in an entirely similar fashion. Tossing the ball into the air the final time, the girl let loose one big serve. This time, trying to hit at a different point of her jump, when the racket and ball collided, the ball merely flew way out of bounds. "Game. Valerie, 4 - 0."
Getting into the feeling of the game, Valerie begun her serves with a vigor that hadn't been present in her previous serves. Hit sharper, more controlled in precision and with greater speed, Xia was having a hard time keeping up with the ball at all. As such, Valerie's first serve had been a service ace without a hitch. However, as the serves kept coming, Xia had eventually managed to catch up with them, and aligning her racket with the ball, she struck as hard as she could to return it. While the return might've shocked some of the audience, unfortunately, it was hit as hard as Xia could. As such, rather than having any descent towards the court, it merely flew in a horizontal line across the field. "Game. Valerie, 5 - 0." With that, the serve went back to Xia and as such, the rest of the match was already decided. As any serve different then the one she had successfully pulled off earlier merely flew out of bounds, Valerie had been able to easily return any serve that would have been in. As such, with the final serve being returned, the referee said, "6 - 0. Match, Valerie."
With the game finished, Valerie seemed to be in a good mood, as she called out to her opponent. "You uh, you kind of sucked, but you fought hard, you got spirit whoever you are that's for sure." The girl then shifted her attention to the audience as she addressed them. "That's last one for me today guys pack up and head out if you're waiting for more." With what was likely disappointing news to the crowd, they started to disperse out of the area.
Xia stood there, a bit dumbfounded. It was certainly not fun to lose, especially as terribly as she had. However, there was something exciting and exhilarating about the game, especially the smashing part. As such, the girl had decided that this was quite the fun game to play. However, as her opponent addressed her, she took a moment to respond, trying to figure out whether or not she was being complimented or insulted, but eventually her expression brightened. "Ah thanks Valerie! Oh, right! I'm Xia, it's nice to meet you." The half-dragon then made her way over to her opponent and offered her hand to shake, before asking "oh and uh, would you want to play again some time? You were like suuuper good and this is a really fun game."
Valerie had gripped onto Xia's hand, pulling her in closer and then patting her on the back with her free hand. "Yeah sure, get better first though, next time I want a real fight."
The girl nodded excitedly, saying, "sure! Next time I'll get real good and then we'll have even more fun!" With that done she then said, "well then, I guess I better be going, nice meeting you Valerie." With that, Xia had started to walk away from the tennis field.
Valerie had reciprocated the farewell, as she said, "see you around Miss Hammer Arm, I..." The girl glanced around the arena, scanning the empty bleachers before putting her hand on Xia's shoulder. "Aaactually how about we head out together, eh? Since we became buddies and all."

Furiko looked a bit curious as Yugo seemed to avoid talking about his family, though it subsided a bit as he said he hadn't inherited any of the psychic powers his grandmother had. While Furiko was still interested, before pressing the matter any further, their conversation was interrupted when a familiar voice struck her ears. Furiko had both a mix of surprise and concern cross her face as she saw the familiar white haired man had popped his head into their room. She was starting to wonder if this man had a bit of a problem, as he seemed quite hung up on their duel, and was becoming more concerned for herself. Though, not out of fear of pain and more so out of having a potential stalker. As he finished and Yugo retorted,Furiko sighed as he left. "Maybe I should look into getting a restraining order for him."
Regardless, the group seemed ready to get their move on, when Yugo said that he was going to Kyouji's personal room. A bit hesitant about it, Furiko said, "uh, I don't think we shou-" but could only sigh as the boy started to walk off without them. Putting her hands in her pocket, Furiko said to Aika, "well, I guess we should make sure he doesn't get into any trouble." With that, the girl started to walk along with the blue-yellow haired boy. On their way there, though, Furiko suddenly started to feel uneasy. While there were any number of people in the tournament hall, the girl could start to make out a distinct voice. It wasn't as if it was a voice in the crowd, more so like it was a voice specifically directed at her. Looking around, the girl couldn't tell where it was coming from, but noticed that her deck box had started to glow. Before she could examine it, though, she saw that Yugo had continued to walk through the building. Thinking it'd be bad to lose track of each other, the girl continued to follow after him, only to eventually see what had caught his attention.
There, standing secluded from others, was the familiar figures of Tycho and Akaryuu dueling each other. Furiko was a bit confused by the scene, but concern crossed her face as she saw the glow coming from both of the duelists' hands. It was at that point that it seemed the hooded man had taken notice of them, and the duel had ended suddenly. Before Furiko could ask what the elder man was doing, he simply rushed past them, with Furiko being a bit stunned to do anything. However, once she recollected herself, she walked over to Tycho alongside Yugo she followed up with, "yeah, he's a weird one so was everything alright?" After the questions were answered Furiko then delayed a bit before, with some concern present in her expression, asked, "also...Why were you dueling Akaryuu just now?"
As Hanae continued to walk through the crowds, making her way back to the others, she eventually heard her name in particular being called out. She wasn't sure how many "Hanae's" there were in the world, and so after some scouting around she had eventually found the source. The voice belonged to one of the people who were with the blank card holders, though, she couldn't exactly remember what his name was. Regardless, she walked towards him and said, "hey," to get his attention. Once she did, the boy had come over to her and told her about how the people were meeting up back at the main room, to which she said, "oh, I was just heading over there myself. Though," she glanced a bit upward as she somewhat dryly stated, "I uh, don't really have anything to report." She was a bit curious about Ao, but didn't really get much of a chance to ask as the boy asked her if she had seen Tycho. The girl looked at him with a completely straight face as she said, "I have no idea who that is." As she said this, she then started to think more on why the name sounded familiar. Soon enough, she remembered the tournament brackets, specifically the one next to Kagami as she said, "oh right, him!" She seemed to light up a bit before her expression went back to flat as she said, "yeah, I haven't seen him anywhere."
It was then that she noticed a strange glowing coming from where, presumably, the boy kept his deck. At this moment, Hanae suddenly felt a lot more guarded as her expression scowled and her gaze narrowed. She wasn't sure what it was, but she could feel something strange. Some sort of foreboding danger that was looming near her, and as the strange whispering entered her hearing. She started to glance around, seeing the faces of those around her look at her curiously only for them to avert their gaze as Hanae's met theirs. Trying to look for the source of the noise, the girl eventually noticed that her deck was glowing as well, as she opened the deck box and saw it coming from specifically the blank. While all she could see from it was a blinding light, the light eventually subsided as the voices started to fade as well. While all that remained in her hand was a blank card, Hanae looked at it as if she were inspecting it under a microscope. 'Just what the hell are these things?' the girl thought to herself. However, placing the card back in her deck, she looked at the boy and said, "well. That was weird. We should probably get to reporting this so get the lead out of your socks and let's get moving." With that, the girl started to move back to the meeting room.
Zephine rose an eyebrow saying, "oh, oh. Sounds like a fun time." While her voice wasn't flat it wasn't as excited as when she were talking about herself. Yet, the white haired girl had still found the girl's passion to the card game admirable. Shifting gears slightly the girl then said, "so I guess you must really be passionate about this then, right? You join this tournament 'cause you were lookin' to make a livin' off this or something?"
"Heeeeelllllooooooo there everyone! It's your host, Ishihara-san bringing you your neeeeexxxttt match up!" The rather enthusiastic commentator announced. "Ms. Juri Lee had to step out for a bit and the booth was open so I just figured, 'hey why not.' Anyway, first up we've got the Little Witch Academic herself, Nakagawa Kaede! And her opponent, the White Haired Wizar- er, Lizard, Hisakawa Hibiki!" As the two duelists stepped into the dueling arena, the announcer then spoke up, "And now! We've got an action duel on our hands here folks, so let's deploy the Action Field, Junglemire Trenches!"
With that, the field around them shifted and changed, going from the usual plain arena-esque field to a much different scenario. Swamps covering the land with flooded trenches littering the area. A canopy of trees sheltering the area, with vines either tied and strewn around the trunks or hanging from the branches above. As the field finished materializing, a large orb of flowing cards was shifting about. "Alright you rascally duelists you, get ready to kick your feet in the mud and begin! Ready and Action!"
"Duel!" With that exclamation, Kaede drew her hand. Looking at the cards, the girl tried to take a deep breath calming herself. "Alright Kaede, it's ok, you can do this. No issue." As she seemed to be pumping herself up, she then looked at the field with a slight start and said, "r-right! I'll take the first go. Uh, my turn!" Picking the first card out of her hand she said, "alright, well, first I'll summon Hannibal Necromancer in attack mode!" As she played the card, a heterochromatic purple, ghoulish looking creature, with golden spikes shooting out of most of its body appeared.
Lv. 4 | DARK
ATK 1400 | DEF 1800
"Right, next, when Hannibal is summoned, it gains a Spell Counter onto itself." Letting out a bit a howl, the creature gained a bluish aura over it as its effect went off. "And now to finish it off, I activate the continuous spell, Arcane Barrier." As the card hit the field, a blue spell circle adorned with runes appeared above her. "And with that, I'll end my turn."

As the girl had continued to move along the path, simply scanning the woods as best she could, it was then that she heard a voice call out for a "Miss." The voice was also coming from right behind her. Briefly scouting about, she noted that there wasn't another "Miss," in the immediate area of the voice, and thus while still walking forward the girl bent backward to see who was behind her. Seeing that the voice belong to the, now upside down, face of the squirrel man from before, she pointed to herself asking, "me?" When this was confirmed, she stood back upright before pivoting 180 degrees. Now walking backwards, she looked at the man, observing him from head to toe back to head before saying, "my group? Well." Her expression seemed to go from curious to enthused as she said, "they're like the best. Yep, the best. We're all really super friendly with each other and all work super super hard to keep peace here."
She nodded to herself, content, before face lit up again. "Oh, and they're all super nice. Yep. Even Irwin and Levi. Even if they can look," she then faked an angry expression and made a low "grrr" sound before, saying, "they're all really nice people who're just looking out for each other. And then there's Urvan, also really nice. Well, he's one of the everyone. So of course he'd be nice! But he's also like super strong and calm and cool and stuff. Oh, and sometimes he pats me on the head for a job well done." The girl seemed oddly proud of this last thing. Outside of the blue-headed meanie and the Isaurian, she figured that the rest of his group was probably also nice, and thus didn't feel the need to ask the armored man. It was at that point she realized something, "oh, right, right, right. It's always important to check each other's condition after each battle. Make sure we're all at our best best, you know? And I haven't seen you talk to any of your nice people so, I shall be the nice person you check with instead. So," the girl cleared her throat a bit as she was about to begin her questioning, only to then look a bit in confusion, unsure of how to go about this. "Uh. Hm. Ah! Are you feeling alright? Yes, that's the question. Or was it, 'how're you feeling?' Hmm. Oh well, it doesn't matter. No wait," the girl cleared her throat again before making it sound a bit deeper, asking, "what's your status?" Her voice shifted back to normal as she said, "yes, that's the one!"

After the Earth Chosen said what she did, the Nature Chosen then seemed to reply with how they needed to go and formulate a better and more effective way to fight. It was true, they were mostly disorganized when it came to fighting and it was only due to both their surprise attack and the scattering of the enemy forces that they managed to pull off the fight as well as they did. Even then, one of them had still died in the process. Thinking about how worse their situation was now, the girl's attention was then brought back to those around her as the halfling seemed to want to go full force in training. "We should find a safe place first," the girl voice out. They couldn't very well train here, as they had to leave soon. And training in the desert sand in the wide open where any matter of bandits or creatures that lived below could ambush them.
As the girl was lost in her thoughts, it was soon that she noticed the draken boy had finished preparing the burial for the orc and had put his body in the pit. As he spoke some words that the girl couldn't understand, she saw the pit light ablaze as the fire spirit dance above it. The girl had a solemn look across her face as the flames burned, and she could not find any words to speak during the pyre. Though he had seemed like a kind and caring soul, she had hardly known him. And what little time they had spent together was mostly occupied with fighting and traveling across the barren wastes of the desert. Nevertheless, he had decided to fight against the demons and had been a valuable ally in the time he was still alive. The girl prayed that he might be able to find peace in whatever lied beyond life, and continued to stand there silently, with her eyes closed as the fires continued.
When all was said, and done, there remained naught but ashes left of him. When that was done with, the girl walked away from the pile, wondering what to do next. It was then that she saw the greatsword that the orc had been wielding earlier lying the sand. Walking over to it, the girl bent down and examined it slightly, before hefting it up. As she did, she then stabbed the blade into the ground, leaving it standing up in the sand. The girl had intended to leave it standing there as a sort of grave marker for the orc, though, all the same she was unsure about leaving a large blade in the middle of a shrine, ruined or not. Regardless, she merely left it there for now, and observed the rest of the group.

As Xia had gotten to the sports stadium, she was a bit in awe of it all. She listened intently as the nice person who was at the entrance of the building guided her around through the area. Xia had seen some of these sports that were presented to her on the magic moving picture box back home, but never had she seen them in person. Looking at the people partaking in these sports, Xia couldn't help but be swept in some kind of excitement, even were the match not that exciting itself. At the end of her little tour, the girl was told that she could watch these things for free, to which the girl seemed to be flabbergasted at. Furthermore, for a small fee, she was even able to play in them. A great sense of enthusiasm started to fuel the dragon girl as she wondered what she would want to try first. Curious as to what she could partake in, the dragon girl asked, "ooooooh, what kind of sports are there?!"
Her question was met with a list. A long list. So long list that midway through Xia stopped seeing or hearing words and instead just jumbles of sounds and letters. As metaphorical smoke could be seen pouring out of the girl's ears, her face having a vacant expression to it despite seemingly being enthused, she eventually stopped with the list and yelled, "I'll do this one! The Tennis one!" She didn't really know what Tennis was, other than it was likely better than Nineis, and so she had merely picked at random.
As she was given the go ahead, the girl started to walk alongside the receptionist and was lead onto a moving walkway. When the dragon-girl had first stepped onto it, she instantly jumped off, wondering what kind of strange sorcery made the ground move as such. As she continued to stare at intently, she periodically put her foot back on it, recoiling away several times until she was assured it was all normal. As the girl stepped onto the floor, she seemed very much in a state of wonder and curiosity as she was being moved by the very ground itself...or just technology. One of those two.

As the airship started to get closer and closer to the base, the supposed fireworks were not relenting. In fact, he was fairly certain that they were getting closer and closer to the ship. Mark wondered what it would be like if they were hit by one. The most likely outcome was that they would then become the fireworks. He briefly wondered what colors he would burst into, when suddenly his thoughts were again interrupted by the rather loud noises produced by the man named Braves. For one with such a name he needed to have more gusto in him. The attitude not the birds. Though having more of those wouldn't hurt. Well, were it literally inside him it mi- Wait. Right. Braves. He was acting awfully loud. While Mark briefly wondered if it was panic, he then realized that maybe he was just having a good time with the fireworks as well. As the shouting continued Mark simply decided that he would join in shouting, "yes! That's the spirit! Hahahahahaha! Other loud noises!" This continued until the loud noises had ended and the gang had landed onto their base.
After the introduction to Major Captain Lightfeather and their base, Mark saluted to the woman saying, "Mark Last-name reporting for the Best Time Ever, Major Captain!" It was then that another enthusiastic individual introduced themselves and spoke about exterminating the opposing army, Mark merely walked over to him and said, "hello there Timzerothree, I look forward to being in this base with you." As he went to emphatically pat the man on the back, he would find that the man was indeed not flesh and bone. Or at least, he would find that he was made of sturdier stuff. Pulling back his hand in slight pain he then emphatically laughed and said, "hahahaha, fully equipped to high five from any area, I see! My, what do you eat to get your skin so shiny and metallic looking though?" While he had asked these questions, without skipping a beat or waiting for answers, he turned towards Wade as he had asked his question. "Doctor God of Ooglie Squirrels, what card game are you referring to? War? Blackjack? I bet it's 60 card pick up, maybe with a 15 card bonus challenge round. Or maybe even rock paper scissors! No, wait. Go fish. That's the one isn't it?!"

As the crew aboard the airship had been flying along, there sat a rather unkempt looking boy with messy purple hair. With hands folded and chin resting atop them, the boy seemed to be in deep thought. Yes, there seemed to be an unwavering focus in his gaze, directed at nowhere in particular, with an expression that seemed to be contemplating something. While outwardly he seemed silent, were one to listen to his inner most thoughts they would hear a noise that would make even greater men turn back. Yes, the strange sound of the waves of the hollow sea pushing through a rusted industrial facility that was also on fire. Truly, the inner machinations of this boy's mind were an enigma.
Wait. Fire. Yes. "Fire!" He seemed to randomly shout as the plane's turbulence from the oncoming fire snapped him back to reality. As he looked around, he saw that there was member in particular who looked perturbed by the whole, "getting fired on by your officer thing," to which Mark could only say, with an odd fondness in his voice, "ah yes. That reminds me of the time that we were out in the field and our own tank- Wait. No that never happened." He seemed oddly pensive look until the orange girl spoke up. He snapped his fingers as if she were onto something and pointed at her. "Yes. Fireworks. Genius. Think of them as tiny little explosions of joy right in your face. That frown you are having!" He pointed to the sour looking individual. "Upside down it!" Looking in the direction the girl was yelling at he said, "yes Larry. Faster would be better. After all, the faster you go the more face explosions you see. Oh my I wonder what's making these as well. Hey have you guys ever seen a fireworks maker? I've always wondered what they looked like but I never pay attention to them when there's fireworks going on."
