YU-GI-OH! 5D'S Tag Force 4
~The Chris and Misty Storyline Version~
*Author's Note: This is my first Yu-gi-oh! Fanfic and it's based off of the Tag Force 4 storyline as I love the game to death, collecting all the cards and boosters (except for one which is stopping me from completely the game 100%). So I hope you guys enjoy this fanfic… and you can use the first chapter as a template to start making your own fanfic of the Tag Force 4 story mode as most of the dialogue are from the game itself, except for a few changes done by me!
*The main character has some modifications from the MC from the game to make my guy unique and he's 19 years old (being almost as tall as Yusei Fudo, but has a very youthful appearance that he is easily mistaken as a 14 or 15 year old).
CHAPTER 1: Prologue
RING! RING! RING!
The alarm clock went off, as the boy groan from being woken up so early in the morning by his alarm clock as he shuts it off, but he had a reason too. Slowly he brought his hands to rub out the sands from his eyes and got out of bed, while stretching and yawning. He quickly went through his draws to pull out a plain black t-shirt, baggy blue jeans with bandages wrapped over the left leg, and grab his red jacket (with a gem of some sort the right shoulder and a black armor-like plate on the left shoulder).
"Sheesh… even though I'm 19 years old, it's still a hassle to wake up on my own!"
After properly grooming himself, as in brushing his teeth and combing his black hair (which oddly the tips at the end faded out to a grayish-like color), he grabbed his custom-made duel disk and his Duel Monster Deck and proceeded to go outside.
"Time to head over to the Satellite," he said as he took his super secret route to the Satellite again to go find any cards to collect.
As he arrived in one of the old abandon towns there were cards on the ground.
"Awesome! These are some pretty good cards! But I wonder why people would throw these away?" said the young man in his red jacket with spiky black hair that curved in a right rotation, like a vortex.
Suddenly another young man appeared with a trademark spiky hair with the golden highlights and blue jacket and stoic look on his face. The young man laments over the forgotten and thrown out cards on the ground by their previous owners.
"I can't believe the way some people treat their cards…" said the young man, "There's not a single card in this world that's not useful in some way."
The boy in the red jacket and the young man in the blue jacket stared intensely at each other, but Yusei broke the silence.
"I see you around here a lot… What's your name?"
"Me? I'm Christopher Corona! But everyone calls me Chris!" said the boy cheerfully scratching the back of his head.
"Chris… I'm Yusei Fudo. Well, thanks a lot for saving the cards."
"Not a problem! I've been collecting these cards around here to build a deck for some of the kids here in the Satellite."
"Really? I'm surprised to see someone from New Domino City coming over to the Satellite to help the people."
Both Chris and Yusei turn their heads to see another person running over to them, a young man (or was it a girl?) with long wavy hair.
"Oh, it's that guy that's always hanging out around here. Do you know him Yusei?"
"We just met a second ago."
"Oh, okay. It's pretty rare for you to be talking to a stranger."
"Friends, huh? Must be really nice to have a good friend to hang out with. Well I have to be going now, more cards to scout out and collect! Later!" said Chris as he hurries off in the north direction waving goodbye to Yusei and Rally.
"Hey Yusei, do you think we'll meet him again?"
Yusei stares off in the direction Chris ran off and turn around smiling.
"I believe so…"
By the coastline with the incomplete bridge to connect New Domino City and the Satellite laid more thrown out cards on the ground.
"Seriously? What's wrong with people? Each card is special and unique and must be treated with care," said Chris sadden by how people can easily thrown away cards.
"Hey! Stop right there!" shouted an individual with spiky, broom-shape, hair with many tracers on his face staring down on Chris suspiciously.
"What are you doing?"
Soon the young man took a closer look at Chris' hands, who was holding some Duel Monsters cards.
"Oh, you're just picking up cards off the ground. Sorry… There have been a lot of suspicious folks around here lately… The kids are too scared to even go outside. That's why I'm out here on patrol. What's your name?"
"Call me Chris"
"Chris, eh? I'm Crow. Nice to meet ya! Just be careful around here. You might get run over by my Blackbird! See ya!" said the young man as he walks back deeper in the Satellite.
"Strange guy… but he was nice. I wonder what other people I'll meet today?" said Chris as he returns back to New Domino City.
Upon his arrival back he finds more cards on the ground.
"Are you kidding? What is it? Throw-out-your-Deck day?" said Chris scratching the back of his head in irritated thought.
Chris looks up to see a beautiful young girl with amber eyes and red hair looking down on him with a curious look on her face.
"What are you doing? I've seen you wandering around here a lot recently. And you're picking up random cards off the street, I see…"
"Well I just can't let some good cards lay on the streets all day long! It's a crime!"
She looks at him with a bewilder look on her face.
"Ah, excuse me! Yes, you two lovebirds!"
Chris looked around to see a girl with swirly glasses and long green hair walking towards him and the girl. He also surveys the area to see any other people around him, but to no avail.
"Wait? Do we really look like lovebirds? Maybe friends, but lovebirds?" Chris said while pondering the thought to himself.
"I'm looking for the building for an organization called the Arcadia Movement around here. Could you point me in the right direction?" the girl in glasses said politely, "I looked it up on the GPS in my car, but then I got lost walking around looking for it."
"The Arcadia Movement is right here. And by the way, we're not actually together," said the girl with amber eyes.
"Whoa! Wait a minute… Aren't you Akiza Izinski?! You are! Ohhh, today's my lucky day!"
"Um… who are you?"
Chris couldn't help, but watch the scene unfold before him. He was curious who the girl in the glasses was and interested in what Akiza has to say.
"Oh… I'm a reporter for a newspaper. Carly Carmine. I'd like to ask you a few questions if you don't mind…"
Akiza just stares at Carly in complete silence with an expressionless look on her face. Without saying a word, she turns around and walks away.
"Huh? Wait up! Wait!" said Carly chasing after Akiza.
"Well those two were interesting. I wonder if those two will become my friends? It's a bummer just to chill by myself all the time," Chris said chuckling before proceeding over to the Stadium, "Maybe I should take a look at the Stadium nearby."
As Chris arrives at the Stadium, mostly deserted, he finds even more cards on the ground.
"You got to be kidding? Even at a Dueling Stadium, people have the nerve to thrown away perfectly good cards? For shame."
"Get out of the way!" yelled a blonde-haired man storming in Chris' direction as Chris jumps out of the way, "You're standing right in the middle of traffic!"
"Sorry! Wasn't expecting anyone coming through here anytime soon," said Chris scratching the back of his head and laughing nervously.
"If you're going to stop to pick up cards, do it on the side of the road!"
"Rude much?" Chris thought to himself.
"Mr. Atlas! So this is where you were!" said a blue-haired woman running in the two young men's direction.
"I can be wherever I want can't I?!"
"I just… wish you'd at least let me, as your secretary, know where you're going…" said the blue-haired woman, obviously concern with Jack Atlas the king (or ex-king), until she turned her attention to the young man next to Jack, "Oh, do you know this person, Mr. Atlas?"
"We just bump into each other. Sorry for causing any trouble!"
"Not at all" said the blue-haired woman.
"Oh, there you are! Mina!" said a Sector Security officer with a scar near his left eye walking over to the blue-haired woman.
"Agent…? Please don't act like you don't even know me…"
"So… what do you need?"
"I was looking everywhere for you!"
"Humph!" said Jack Atlas as he walks away, "I have no time for this!"
"Ah! Mr. Atlas! Wait for me!" as Mina chases after Jack Atlas.
"Ahhhhhh! Mina!" cried out Trudge as he chases after her in the same fashion.
"Aw… what was that all about? Heh, maybe I'll talk to them next time," said Chris as he walks away from the Stadium.
There are more cards on the ground near the apartments as Chris picks them up one by one.
"Someone outta make a law where throwing away good cards is a crime! But that's a little unfair and everyone's entitle to their free will," sighed Chris.
"Hey, excuse me!" someone called out.
Chris looked around, but didn't see anyone until he looked down to meet a young boy with green hair tied in a ponytail-style.
"Stop that, Leo! You don't know what kind of person he might be!" said a young girl who looked exactly like the young boy, but with two pigtails sticking out in the front of her head.
"Hurtful, but I am a stranger to them. It's only fair," thought Chris.
"It's okay! The card spirits are saying it's fine, aren't they?" said the boy named Leo.
"Well yes, but…"
"Hey, I'm Leo! This is my sister, Luna! We're twins! What's your name?"
"Pleasure to meet you guys! I'm Christopher Corona, but everyone calls me Chris!"
"Oh, Chris! Cool name! You're picking up cards, so that must mean you're a duelist, right?"
"That's right! But I'm mainly collecting these cards to give away to kids who never had cards before," explained Chris.
"How thoughtful," said Luna smiling.
"Awesome! Then why don't you due… H-Hey, what is it, Luna!?" said Leo as Luna was yanking Leo's arm.
"You can't just go around challenging random people to duels, you know? Anyway, you have to get home and do some study! Aren't you behind in your networking class?"
"That doesn't matter! Not when I'm gonna be the Duel King someday!"
"You can't even do simple addition and subtraction! How can you be the Duel King?"
"Luna, stop pulling me!" said Leo as Luna dragged Leo back to their apartment.
"Heh, to be young again. I wish you the best of luck Leo on fulfilling your dream," Chris mused to himself as he decided to retreat back home for the day as the sun was already setting.
As Chris continues to walk home he spots a card caught in the wind and blowing straight into a fancy-looking hotel as someone walks out opening the door, as if to let a guest of honor in.
"The winds of change really have something in store for me," Chris said as he enters into the building and picks up the card.
"I'm glad I was able to save these cards today, I can't wait to see the smiling faces of the children when they receive an awesome deck for them to keep!" said Chris chuckling to himself and thinking how happy the kids over at the Satellite will be.
Still wearing a smiling face, Chris turned around to exit the building but came face-to-face with a very beautiful and mature-looking woman. The woman looked into Chris' face and a shocked and stunned spread across her beautiful face.
"Huh? Something wrong?" said Chris looking at the woman questionably surprised by her reaction.
"Oh, never mind… Sorry, I didn't mean to scare you like that," said the woman with an apologetic look on her face, "What's your name…?"
"Me? Call me Chris! It's nice to meet you… erm, and you are?"
"That's a nice name. I'm Misty," said the woman.
"Misty? As in the Super Model Misty? Hm, I see," thought Chris completely unfazed by the fact he was in the presence of a Super Model.
"Do you come around here often?" said Misty snapping Chris back into reality.
"Not really… I came here by chance."
"I see. Oh no… I'm going to be late for my rehearsal. I have to get going, but…" said Misty as she took a step closer to Chris, almost touching his face, examining his face.
"Your face is very interesting. I see that you have met a lot of different people today. I can tell by looking at your face… And I'm one of those people!" Misty said smiling cheerfully, "From this day forward, you're going to experience a lot of different things… with the people you've met today."
"Really? That's cool… already made a ton of friends," said Chris smiling.
"Indeed," said Misty, and for some reason her cheeks with tinted with pink hues, "Some of those experiences may be more difficult than you could ever imagine… but you will make it through them. I know you are strong enough… but yet, they're some many different paths in your future."
Chris ponder over what she said… was he really all that special? No, people aren't born like that, the special only to the people that matter to them. That's what makes a person special that they exist in the lives of others to make them happy.
Misty continues to watch the young man think over what she explain to him, until she realized she wasted too much time already.
"I have to go now… I'll see you again. Goodbye and take care," said Misty as she left in a hurry.
"Time for me to go too…"
After a long, eventfully, and tiring day Chris finally arrived home. It was just a small house with a bedroom, which strangely connects to the front door, a small kitchen, and a bathroom. Taking off his red jacket, leaving only his black t-shirt on, he walk over to his laptop (which is across from his bed) and typed in his digital journal about his day and looking over the best possible combination for a deck the kids can use in the Satellite.
Looking at his window, he saw the starry night sky. As the stars' light takes millions of years to reach Earth, allowing people to view the star's past and ponder what future is in store for the stars… and what future Chris will shine upon in his world.
Looking over at the alarm clock, which was 10:58pm, he decided it was time to hit the hay.
Waking up in a similar fashion to how he got up this morning, he perform his daily routine of putting on his trademark red jacket, black t-shirt, baggy blue jeans and putting on his custom-made red and black duel disk he leaves his house.
After taking his secret passage to the Satellite he gave some decks he made using the cards he found the other day to the Satellite eagerly waiting for Chris to deliver the decks he promised. After waving goodbye to the children, Chris returns back to New Domino City, but Chris stops dead in his track.
"Now then… who which I go visit today?" said Chris thinking about which person he meet the other day to hang out with.
After thinking over it he decided on the person…
"Alright, I'll go see THAT person again…" as Chris walks down the street, humming a very catchy tune.
