Chapter 1: New Deck, New Friends, New World!

I sat at my desk, finally typing the last sentence on one of my Fanfiction story chapters before uploading the chapter. "Uuuuuurgh! Finally got that chapter out! I can't believe I found the time..."

Oh right! Descriptions! Sorry, they come first right? Yep. Anyway, my name is Elliot, I know better then to give you my second name. I'm not telling you my age, where I live or any of that, but I will say that I am tall, have dark brown hair and blue eyes, and am so pale I could be 'an extra off of Twilight'.

I sat on my bed and looked at the time, 9:45 PM. 'I guess I'd better get ready for awful as it may be.' I dragged myself over to the wardrobe and opened it, shifting through several trousers, shirts and jumpers until I got out one of each, all blue. Hey, I'm not one for different colours.

I was just about to close the doors when I noticed something, hidden down in the corner. 'Is that...?' I reached in and picked it up, instantly recognizing the rectangular holder. 'This is my Xyz deck! I thought I lost this!'

I'm the kinda guy who constantly shifts what his favourite subject is, and Yu-Gi-Oh just seemed to slip away, but I was happy to find this deck again. I went through the deck, admiring the cards I'd traded to constantly improve, I actually kinda missed this.

As I reached the final card I raised an eyebrow. 'What is this?'

The card I was now looking at was unnamed with an Effect Monster border, the picture showed what looked like a blue bouncy ball with white propellor like arms, white feet and yellow eyes, bouncing around with what looked like a light blue clock with black borders and hands in the background.

"What kind of card is this?" I asked myself, I didn't remember it in my fact I don't know this card at all! And why wasn't it named?

The more intently I stared at the card, the more the picture seemd to fade, until it was completely white! "How did-" I was interrupted as the card shone brightly. "Gah!" I shielded my eyes as the light made even the darkness created by my eyelids brighten.


Finally the light seemed to fade, and I blinked open, to be met with something I didn't expect.

I was no longer in my bedroom, more rather I was standing on a pathway, looking at a bunch of large buildings. 'Wh-Wha-? Where the hell am I!?'

I felt someone bump into me. "Oh! I'm sorry, young man." A voice said.

"It's okay." I apologised, turning to the voice my jaw dropped.

The woman in front of me looked average, wearing a yellow sundress, nothing special, what shocked me was her face, or more specifically, her eyes. They were huge! She literally had anime eyes! I'm not joking!

"Are you sure you're all right?" She asked again.

"I...uh...uh...yep, promise." I nodded.

She nodded before walking off, and I finally noticed other people walking around, and they all looked like people off of an anime! I was seriously doubting my mind.

'Okay...this is a dream!' I rationalised in my mind. 'I obviously just fell asleep, I-I mean it was late and everything. Of course that's it!' I then realised I felt a little different, or rather my clothes did. 'I don't think I'm wearing pajamas anymore...' I walked over to a nearby shop window and looked at my reflection, and I almost screamed.

What was looking back at me in the window was someone who was definitely not me! He was wearing a red unzipped no sleeve jumper over a long baggy armed dark blue shirt with a white swirl in the centre, the end having three spikes jutting out of its outer most part. He also wore long black slacks and white slip-on shoes with red edges, also with a white dark blue belt that had some kind of holder attached.

And the hair! Oh the hair! It had a large spike jutting out the front, with two sweeping down either side of his face with the rest of it being swept back. It was mainly crimson red in colour, but with some dark blue strands for emphasis. And he also had anime eyes, which were sapphire blue.

'No way...' I thought, waving my arms around and jumping up and down only for the person in the window to copy me, and for crossing civilians to give me weird looks. 'Okay...remain calm...this is all just a dream remember...and-hey, hold on a second.'

I just realised I was wearing some kind of gauntlet on my left arm, reaching into the holder I pulled out a...Yu-Gi-Oh deck? 'A deck?' I fanned out the cards, recognising a few such as Polymerization and Flare Resonator, but most were made up of weird cards I'd never seen before. Most of the monsters seemed to have their names start with 'Timestream'.

"I've never heard of an archetype like that." I mumbled to myself, before putting the deck back in the 'gauntlet'. I then reached into the holder on my belt, pulling out two Xyz monsters, two Synchro's and two Fusion's, none of which I recognised. "So this is an extra deck."

"Hey! Is that an Extra Deck?"

I looked behind me and-oh my god the hair! It was crimson and green! CRIMSON AND GREEN! Sorry...but I had to get that out of the way. He wore goggles with a blue star over one lens, a red vest, dark green baggy trousers and red shoes. He alos wore a white jacket like a cloak One Piece Marines style, which I had to admit, looked pretty damn cool.

"Yeah." I nodded as I put the cards back in my holder.

"Woah, those are really rare!" He smiled. "You must be a really good Duelist if you have Extra Deck monsters."

"Really? I thought it was pretty common." I mumbled in confusion.

"Uh, maybe t's just us, then?" He thought aloud in an embarrassed manner. "I don't think I've seen you around before. Are you from out of town?"

"You could say that." I shrugged.

"Oh! Sorry, I forgot to introduce myself." He held out a hand. "I'm Yuya. Yuya Sakaki."

I shook it. "It's nice to meet you Yuya. I'm Elliot...Elliot...Zekaki." 'Nailed last minute name idea.'

"Good to meet you too! Did you just arrive here, then?"

"Yes." I answered as quickly as I could.

"In that case, let me be the first to welcome you to Maiami City!" He beamed. "Y'know, I've got some spare time. I can show you around if you like."

'Well, if I'm not getting out of here any time soon, I might as well follow Yuya.' I thought. "I'd like that."

"Great! Maiami is an excellent place for Duelists! I'll show you." He began walking, and I followed along behind him.

'So...what? I'm in a Yu-Gi-Oh anime or something? Crap! I never made it past ZEXAL!'

Finally we stopped outside a very asymmetrical building with 'You Show Duel School' on the front. "This is You Show Duel School, a Dueling school which I attend!" Yuya opened the door. "Helloooooooooooo?...Looks like nobody is here."

"Then maybe we shouldn't be here?" Knowing this was anime, I'm pretty sure a sweatdrop appeared on the back of my head.

"Don't worry, it's fine if we're here." Yuya smiled, turning to me. "We actually just fitted in a new Solid Vision system, and it's working great!"

"Solid Vision? What's that?" I asked.

"Huh? You've, never heard of Solid Vision?" He asked.


"Action Duels?"




"Wow...I've never even met anybody who was so uninformed of them." Yuya admitted.

'Is that a bad thing?' I thought nervously.

"Hmmmm...I know! Let's have a Duel!" Yuya suggested.

"A Duel?" I repeated.

"Yeah! That way, we can get a feel for your Dueling, and how Action Duels will be for you!" He smirked.

'He certainly has enthusiasm.' I thought. "Okay! Why not?"

"Great!" He smiled. "Let's just have a regular Duel, then I can introduce you to Action Duels."

"...Okay, then." I accepted as we walked into a big dome-shaped room, taking positions on each side of the field.

"Alright!" Yuya cheered. "Elliot, I'm glad to be dueling with you! I hope I can entertain you!" He said with a bow.

"Uhh...okaaaay." I sweatdropped again.

He held his arm out, with a gauntlet on it just like mine, suddenly it burst out into a Duel Disk. 'This thing is a Duel Disk!? How do you turn it on!?' I pressed buttons randomly until mine turned into a Duel Disk as well. Whilst mine was electric blue Yuya's was yellow.

"Duel!" We both yelled.

Elliot vs Yuya LP: 4000

"I'll go first!" I looked at the first five cards in my hand. 'If this is gonna be my deck, I'd better get used to it...'

"I summon Timestream Blob in attack mode!" I placed the monster on one of my Duel Disk's sections, and a hologram version appeared in front of me.

Out of the card came a little ball of blue jelly with white arms and pudgy feet, and two yellow eyes, it looked like an enemy off of Kirby!

Timestream Blob, Level 1, Fairy, Light, ATK: 100, DEF: 100.

"And now his effect activates! When he's Normal Summoned, I can Special Summon a Level 4 or lower Timestream monster from my hand! So I choose Timestream Wanderer in attack mode!"

This time what came out was a long cloak, half red and half white, a long blue scarf was around the neck and the two ends extended out each side, acting as arms. A black hat completed the look, with only two red eyes being visible.

Timestream Wanderer, Level 4, Warrior, Earth, ATK: 1600 DEF: 1200.

"And that's not all! When Wanderer is summoned in any way, I can Special Summon a Level 3 or lower Timestream monster from my hand! So here's Timestream Mage in attack mode!"

This time a little chibi girl with orange hair, red eyes, and witches clothes too big for her appeared, she carried a golden staff in each hand, which both had large blue orbs on the tips.

Timestream Mage, Level 2, Spellcaster, Dark, ATK: 600 DEF: 400.

"And when she's special summoned, I can increase one monsters level by one, and decrease another monsters level by one! So I'll increase Mage's level to 3, and decrease Wanderer's level to 3!"

Mage waved her wands, sending a blue ball of light to envelop her and Wanderer, setting both their levels at 3.

"I'll set a card and end my turn." I finished. 'Hey, this works pretty good! Summoning a lot of monsters is my style!'

"Woah! Three monsters in one turn! That's pretty cool Elliot!" Yuya praised. "My turn, draw!" He drew very flashily. "I summon Performapal Hip Hippo in attack mode!"

Now, I was expecting a lot of things, but I was not expecting a pink hippo wearing a suit and top hat. I noticed it only had "Alright Hip Hippo! Let's put on a show! Attack Timestream Blob!" The hippo cheered before jumping towards my cute little blob.

"I activate my Trap! Rallied Forces!" The card flipped up. the picture showing a huge army of silver knights attacking a small army of very scared goblins. "I can only activate this card when I have 3 or more monsters and my opponent has less monsters then I have. As long as I have more monsters then my opponent, none of your monsters can attack!"

A pink aura bust forth, pushing Hip Hippo back. "All right then, I set two cards and end my turn!" Yuya finished.

"My turn! Draw!" I drew my card dramatically. 'This is so cool! I'm in an actual duel!' "I activate my Spell, Power Shock!" The card showed itself, depicting Blob and Wanderer generating a giant sphere of electricity above them in the centre of a portal.

"I can only activate this when I have two or more Timestream monsters on my side of the field, I can select two of them, then the difference is inflicted to you as effect damage!" Wanderer and Blob began re-enacting their picture, throwing the electricity at Yuya and throwing him back.

Yuya LP: 2500

"Now, Timestream Wanderer! Attack Performapal Hip Hipo" Wanderer jumped towards the hippo, pulling one of its scarf arms back.

"I activate a Spell! Hippo Carnival!" The Quick-Play Spell flipped up. "When this card is activated, I can summon three Hippo Tokens in Defence Mode!"

I was beginning to become weirded out by his deck, as three hippos in dancers outfits appeared before me. Rallied Froces glowed before shattering, indicating its destruction now that Yuya had more monsters then me. "And now you can only attack Hippo Tokens for the rest of the Battle Phase!" Wanderer's attack was quickly thrown at a Hippo Token, easily destroying it due to its 0 defence points.

"Okay then, I'll just attack with Timestream Mage and Blob as well!" Mage whacked a hippo with her staffs, and Blob spun like a spintop to take out the other. "Now that all of your dancers are gone, I'll set a card and end my turn." A card appeared in front of me, signifying its placement.

"Gaaah! You got me!" Yuya admitted. "Pretty good strategy! But the fun's not over yet! Draw!" He looked at his card and smiled. "Get ready, Elliot! The fun has just begun! Hip Hippo can be treated as two tributes, so I shall release it..." The monster burst into a pillar of light.

"...To summon Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon!"

A green orb and a reb orb flashed through the yellow pillar of light, followed by the body of a huge dragon with 2500 attack!

"No way!" I gasped. "You summoned a Level 7 so quickly!? And what monster is this anyway!?"

"All right Elliot! This is where the party starts!" Yuya cheered.

'Crap! I'm in trouble!' I cursed in my head. 'This is one crazy dream!'

This has been a remake of the first chapter, which was admittedly pretty amateur. Thank you for reading, and if you're new to this story, trust me, like the anime, this story will get better!
