Once again I have failed to get Just in Time done, never fear though have chapter two of Back to Reality instead.

As usual more after the jump.

Chapter Two – Two Minds, One Body


“Urggh…” Vger moaned to himself. The explosion from his VR device had knocked him clean out, making him feel as disorientated as a night on the port.  He stood up slowly, clutching his (now very) sore head “My head…Feels like someone’s clobbered a wrench on it”

“Well, this is another fine mess you got us into…” the voice of Urtheart echoed through his head “I told you it wasn’t safe to do something like that”

“Says the person who was all for this…” Vger retorted. The fox looked around his surroundings, expecting to find ruined machinery and wrecked shelves. Instead, he saw a vast school in front of him, a crowd of teenagers chatting away to themselves. In the distance he saw large office blocks, advertisements for what looked like a children’s game on every tower. “Okay – where the hell are we? And where’s my hat?”

“I know about as much as you do” Urtheart replied “Well, actually I know one thing more than you”

“That is?”

“I have no bloody body!” Urtheart screamed, causing Vger to recoil from the sudden loudness

“Don’t be ridiculous” Vger replied “I mean, you’re…just…” he looked around in desperation to try and see the black-furred demon “Huh. You’re right”

“Of course I’m right – I’m the one without a body!” Urtheart said tersely

“Calm down…” Vger said “I mean, I’m sure there’s a perfectly good-Gravy! Why am I wearing leather trousers?!” The fox ran desperately towards a nearby pool and his face fell even more into despair. He was wearing the same style of jacket as the students he saw earlier, along with the aforementioned leather pants. His tail was groomed back in a slick style, a purple tint now on the tip of it. His ears and fur on the top of his head also had similar treatment, making him look more like a traditional Japanese kitsune than a British fox. The final thing that set everything off was a medallion around his neck shaped like a pyramid.

“Ah, that explains a lot…” Urtheart replied, Vger motionless with panic. As Vger looked on in the water, an astral version of Urtheart floated above him, looking similar to Vger in a variety of ways – only his black spikes were tinted blonde with purple and the lack of a large tail and orange fur. “This answers everything, methinks”

“M-My fur…” Vger moaned sinking to his knees (no mean feat for someone in tighter-than-usual trousers)

“Obviously” Urtheart continued, ignoring the whimpering fox “We’ve been manipulated by your VR machine that blew up. We must be trapped inside a game of its own creation, keeping us here until we somehow destroy the machine fully or win the game. I’ve seen this done a number of times before – damn that Dreads making me test out his VR machine so many times…”

“And my tail!” Vger whimpered “I spent years getting it into its permanently neglected state!”

“So, as Yu-Gi-Oh was the format that was loaded into it – we must be in some form of Yu-Gi-Oh game” Urtheart concluded “That sound right Vger – or should I say Yugi?”

“Y-Yugi?” Vger stuttered “I’m no whiny kid!”

“Relax” Urtheart said “If things go wrong, simply switch me in – got it?”

“I guess so” Vger muttered, still not used to his new position and character.

“Hey! Yugi!” a male voice called out. Vger turned around to see two figures wandering towards him – one a black-furred hedgehog with blond highlights and the other a brown-furred fox, both in similar school uniforms and what looked like cards in their hands

“Oh boy…” Vger sighed, recognising the figures “Are you two stuck in this game too?”

“Game?” the fox asked “You think school is a game, Yugi?”

“Come on Andy – you’re not gonna go all into this, are you?” Vger asked

“Who’s ‘Andy’?” the hedgehog asked

“Oh don’t be stupid, Spin”

“Did you hit your head, Yugi? I’m Tristan and this is Joey – remember?” the fox pointed out

“No you’re…Never mind…” Vger sighed

“It seems like the game has taken people we know and put them in instead of the normal characters” Urtheart said to Vger “Obviously Spin and Andy’s images are being used for Joey and Tristan”

“Fine – I’ll go with it…” Vger sighed

“Go with what?” Joey-Spin asked, obviously not hearing what Urtheart said

“Um…Nothing” Vger replied “So – what are you gonna do now?”

“It’s time for school!” Tristan-Andy smiled “And you know what that means?”

“Crippling equations?”

“Cupcakes!” the fox smiled, grabbing the fox and pulling him inside, Joey-Spin following closely behind

“Kill me now…” Vger muttered “Please…”

School time means it’s time to hack up your friends and make them into delicious baked goods?

Man, Yugioh’s changed.

Thanks very much for the positive feedback EEV – glad you’ve enjoyed it so far.

Actually, I’d love to hear your (and anyone else’s) guesses on who’d be who in this story in the future – it’d be fun to see how close (or far) your suggestions would be.

@ EEV: To quote Kevin Spacey: Wrong!

Well, most of them. Actually, to be honest, most of them won’t actually appear in it. I had trouble thinking up of ideal people to be certain characters, and once I got the definate roles out of the way (I’ll let you know as they appear), it left me a little bit of trouble working out who’d be who in it. So a few roles got cut out due to that and the way I planned it. Though I will say this – you got TWO roles spot on. Not saying which ones though…Well, okay – Blake isn’t Kaiba…Still, you had some very good ideas there

@ comiccommenter: And sorry to say – Blake isn’t Duke Devlin. He’s got a much more unique role…

Keep guessing – it’s great to hear your suggestions and Wild Mad Guessing (copyright TV Tropes)

July 23, 2011 at 10:28 am

Another awesome and hilarious chapter there T.A, keep it up dude this is great. 😀

Let me first start by saying that this is awesome. It has been a super long time since I’ve seen the actual series, so I’m very short on guesses as to who will be what… However, I am one to suspect that Ahkmin will be Téa…. I’m not sure why, but everything seems to be unpredictable as it is, so it might fit.
