I was built to break.
My heart was made to ache.
These bones are broken still.
I've lost my path and will.
My breath is shallow,
it's getting hard to swallow
this bitter pill of my demise,
looking at this life I despise.
A night that keeps getting darker.
A bright star that fades away.
My grim reality is getting starker
desolate day by desolate day.
The vivid colors all blend to grey
and bleed on the canvas Earth.
It's okay if you don't want to stay,
for I have been cursed since birth.
My feeble mind can grope and fumble
for a reason to crack a smile.
I've been forced to be humble
and have been all the while.
I have no strength you see.
My muscles have atrophied.
I am an open wound - a glass jar.
Don't follow me, I won't go far.
I want the might of ten strong men
with the fearlessness of a bear.
All I have is this ball-point pen
to show you how much I care.
Please dear, don't give up on me.
You have the power, it's meant to be.
Yu-Gi-Oh x Vanguard -- Chapter 6"Misaki?" Yusei asked in a concerned voice, everybody looked at her; she was silent; never said a word, you could see that in her eyes, she was thinking of something.Yu-Gi-Oh x Vanguard -- Chapter 63 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
"What's wrong?" asked Shin
"It's just, that time in the national tournament, the second time Q4 participated, the same thing happened..." she answered in a low kind of voice. Kamui, looked away, as if getting what she was talking about, Jaden and Yusei looked at him in confusion.
"That same thing...?" as Jaden finally got the courage to ask
"Y--Yeah," as Misaki gulped, "It actually started in the final round against Team Avengers; Kyou and his team,"
"K... Kyou?" Yusei asked
"Yeah, another cardfighter, one that Kai defeated..." as Kamui replied back
"And who might Kai be?" as Yusei asked another question
"Well..." the shop manager started, "Kai Toshiki, he's the last member of Team Quadrifolio, but... he's not here right now..."
"I... see, I'm not going to ask, anymore about him, but I'm kinda curious of the time d
Yu-Gi-Oh x Vanguard -- Chapter 10Jaden walked down the streets of the city. He put his hands in his pockets and looked as his feet, then to the sky; it was getting cloudy, obviously, it would rain soon, where was he suppose to stay in a time like this? "Now, only if I went with Yusei but his companion, looked more serious than him... I could have gone back to Card Capital, but I'm sure Yugi's just fine " he then smiled, "I just hope I find my place soon and I mean soon, 'cuz it looks like it's going to rain!!" he loudly murmured.Yu-Gi-Oh x Vanguard -- Chapter 103 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Soon, small droplets of water started pouring from the sky. Most people brought up their umbrellas to stay dry. As for Jaden, he was currently running; looking for a dry place. He came across a building. Just before the entrance, there was a small platinum colored roof. It didn't matter if it was small, as long that he had shelter until the rain stopped, it would be just fine.
The security guard guarding the building noticed him, "Hey you!!" he cried, going to h

Yusei Fudo, a great duelist of his time, known as the 'Satelite's Shooting Star'. He had midnight black hair with midnight blue eyes, he wore a blue jacket with a black undershirt that has a logo at the middle, seemingly black pants and a pair of brown boots. He excels at a kind of dueling called 'turbo duels'. He was determined to chase a time traveler one day after his 'Stardust Dragon' being taken from him.
Jaden Yuki, another great duelist of his time who excels in fusing monsters. He had brown hair with chocolate brown eyes, he wore a red jacket; that seems to be his school uniform ever since. He was traveling in Venice, when a madman appeared and almost crushed him, if Yusei hadn't come. Both of them decided to join fo

Jaden looked at his opponent, Ren Suzugamori; who has been staring at his unit for quite some time now. Jaden tilted his head in confusion. "Is it just because he's waiting for me to make my move?" he then shook his head. "I ride Blaster Javelin (6000)! Fullbau's skill activates! When Javelin is rode, I can add this guy from my hand " he stated, searching his deck and adding a grade two unit two his hand and naturally revealed it to his opponent.
Ren looked at it in curiosity, "Why does he seem so familiar?" he thought.
"Done dozing? 'Cuz I activate Javelin's skill, when Fullbau's in the soul, he gains (+2000) power (8000). I end my turn."
"My turn then!" shouted Ren as he drew a card from his deck. "I ride Scout of Darkness, Vortimer (7000), his skill allows me to look

"A legendary clan?" asked Jaden, looking back at Yusei.
"Alright, I ride, Amber Dragon, Daylight," stated Yusei as another dragon appeared on the field. "And due to Dawn's skill, when I ride Daylight, I can add Amber Dragon Dusk to my hand," he continued, while searching his deck as he took a grade two dragon card and added it to his hand. "That pretty much ends my turn."
"My turn, I draw," said Kai, drawing the top card on his deck, "I ride Lizard Soldier, Riki and call Djinn of the Lightning Spark," as two more units appeared on the field, "My Vanguard attacks," declared Kai.
"Drive trigger check" but there was nothing there, "My Djinn attacks, when he attacks he gets +4000 power and when there's a Narukami Vanguard, he gets +2000 power."

"Good question," stated Shin "I named the team 'Quadrifolio' at first you see, it's a four leafed clover; which symbolizes good luck, there we're originally four members in our team, but one isn't here, unfortunately."
"I see," nodded Jaden "But why call it 'Q4'?"
"For Kamui's sake, he couldn't pronounce the words right, so we decided to make the term shorter," replied the manager looking at Kamui.
"D-- Don't blame me, English wasn't my best shuppet, okay?!" Kamui snapped back
"Yeah, I can see that and it's 'best subject', by the way..." as Yusei smiled a little
"People like YOU should keep their mouths shut!!"
"LIKE I SAID, IF YOU'RE GOING TO FIGHT, DO IT OUTSIDE!!" shouted Misaki as Kamui hid behind Aichi
"So anyway, guys like you must be Vanguard fighters, right?" asked the shop manager, turning to Yugi and the others

Yugi showed his serious face, trying to look around "There just might be a reason we're here you know... because, I don't know if it was just me, but I had a dream the night before I met both of you..."
You could see the shock on Yusei and Jaden's face that they, too, had a dream "Would you mind explaining Yugi?" Yusei asks, trying to remember a dream he had.
"Well..." Yugi started "... I could see myself in the middle of a unknown world; obviously not ours, nor this one were in right now..."
"You mean like a world full of brown rocks?" asked Jaden
"And a sky blue sky, slowly to be eaten up by a dark cloud?" as Yusei added
"The exact one, but I met a person... he um... had a white armor and a blue undergarment, a white and blue helmet and seems to always hold a white and blue sword that seems to be as high as his chest..." said Yugi, starring into the sky, thin

"I wonder how well Yugi does in his first, um... Van- um..." said Jaden, thinking

When Allen Walker woke up this morning, he felt really weird. His throat hurt, his head was pounding, and his nose was so stuffed up he could barely breathe. He sighed miserably. There's no way he could be sick, not today. There were so many debts he had to pay off, and fast the boy cursed his master for how recklessly the womanizer spent his money. There was only so much an eleven year old boy could take!
Allen shivered when he wiggled out of the covers, the morning air attacking him immediately under his thin night shirt. He clenched his teeth, standing up shakily from his bed. He stood for a few seconds, then wobbled and fell back onto the springy mattress, feeling as if some cruel being had come by and sucked all the energy out of his shivering body. Allen groaned and tried again, this time a bit more slowly, and he eventually managed to stand on his own.
This sucks Allen thought bitterly. He stumbled across the tiny room to his closet and pulled on a pair of trouser

Odin's doom in wolfish form.
Evil-born or betrayal turned?
By the Gods and people spurned.
Judged, tried, convicted through their fear,
of the threat you might be some future year,
They chose to bind you strong and fast,
though they knew it could not last.
They told you it was just a game,
something to test and prove your name,
they'd tie you up in every fetter,
but none could hold you any better,
Like silken threads you snapped each one,
steel and stone were soon undone,
finally they brought a ribbon, frail and thin,
yet some dwarfish magic sparked deep within.
Your suspicion roused, you tried to refuse,
they taunted you, "Afraid you'll lose?"
Angry, yet sly, you gave your permission,
on one firm, final, bloody condition.
One of the Gods, to prove it's in fun,
must place in your jaws, from wrist to thumb,
their own precious hand to prove it a jest,
before you'll fulfil this final test.

He expected to be dead after that but he felt as if he was still alive. He opened his eyes and found himself in a dark cavern that stretched out for what look like forever. All of a sudden a crowd of human shaped foggy apparitions rose up from the ground and all marched towards him. When they grabbed him images from Zero Reverse flashed before his eyes. He saw Rudger Goodwin press the button, he saw Old Momentum's light envelope the city and split it in two. Worst of all he saw people falling into the cracks between land as well as people burning in Old Momentum's light.
