Generation Gaps, a Yu-Gi-Oh + Cardfight Vanguard Crossover

CV S3, post-YGO / Rated-T / No requests in reviews please

The recently formed Cardfight Vanguard club gets a new adviser who’s transferred from the middle school department. Regal, charismatic and daring, he’s not quite what the club expected and they’re in for more surprises about the deck he holds. What’s this Duel Monster card game that died fifteen years ago?

ZAMBOANGA CITY—The story of Kabang is one more heartwarming take on the familiar theme of the pet dog as lifesaver.

Cousins Dina Bunggal, 11, and Princess Diansing, 3, were walking across Nuñez Extension on Dec. 14 not knowing that a speeding motorcycle was bearing down on them. At the crucial moment, Kabang, the Bunggal family’s dog, emerged from nowhere and jumped into the motorcycle’s path.

The cousins stumbled but were otherwise unharmed. The motorcycle driver, likewise unharmed, took them to hospital for treatment of their bruises.

Eyewitness Jovito Urpiano said Kabang (a Visayan term that means “spotty”) shielded the two girls from certain harm.

Urpiano was in an eatery on his noontime break from driving a tricycle and saw how Kabang stopped the motorcycle from hitting the girls. The dog’s head landed directly on the motorcycle’s front wheel, and as it rolled, her snout got stuck in it.

“I thought somebody threw the dog on the motorcycle, but I could not see anyone who might have done that,” Urpiano told the Inquirer. He said it later came to him that Kabang had intentionally blocked the motorcycle’s path to save the girls.

A hero

Rudy Bunggal, Dina’s father who works at a nearby vulcanizing shop, also saw how Kabang saved the lives of his daughter and niece.

“The bones holding her upper snout were crushed, and we could not do anything to save it. We just pulled her off the wheel,” Bunggal said.

Thus freed, Kabang ran away as fast as she could and went missing for two weeks. When she finally returned to the family home, she looked very different.

But her human family could not care less.

“It does not matter if she’s ugly now. What is important to us is she saved our children and we cannot thank her enough for that,” Bunggal said.

“Kabang is a hero,” said his wife Christina.

Milk and porridge

Bunggal said Kabang’s heroic act might have been triggered by her closeness to Dina and Princess.

He said he found Kabang as a puppy near the family home a year ago. “We raised her like she was ours. We gave her Bear Brand (a milk brand) and porridge,” he said.

Buying milk for the dog was a big deal for the family, according to Bunggal, because he and his wife, who sells candies, have a combined daily income of only about P150.

Christina said that as Kabang grew, she was fed the same food that the family ate. “We did not mind if she was an addition to our expenses. We regarded her as part of the family,” she said.

Bunggal said Dina and Princess always played with the dog. “They even sleep together,” he said.

He recalled that Kabang had no history of wandering outside the house, which was why, he said, “we could not believe she went out when she sensed that the girls were in danger.”

Veterinarian Anton Lim of the Tzu Chi Foundation said Kabang’s act of saving the girls showed that she was grateful to the family.

Back to old self

Lim has been treating Kabang for her injuries and has administered antibiotics so her wounds would heal faster.

Kabang now uses her paws to eat. She is back to her old self, and has resumed playing with Dina and Princess.

And she is expecting puppies, according to Christina.

Can people PLEASE be nicer? I’m seriously going to cry about the treatment I get here in tumblr. I finally find an active Suikoden community and the first thing I see are cliques who wouldn’t have second thoughts isolating others to shoot down one word they don’t like. Yeah, I know I shot another person because they had a different idea than mine but did I start making follow-up messages to make that person shitty? Make them the villain? Heck, when I did that, I was fucking new to tumblr and my blog to me was my rant blog. I didn’t know tags were actively followed because who the hell has time for that? At that time, I didn’t think tumblr could be place for discussion because the whole reblog to chat thing was ridiculous to me.

I’ve been so frightened and scared of the things I put up with the Suikoden tag because I didn’t want to get ostracized again, being jeered and laughed out because I claimed to have been “out of context.” But it still keeps hitting me each time I see the familiar names pop out and I still feel like no one’s buying my words because of my tarnished credibility. How could one argument do this to me? It’s not me myself who did this. It’s the people who I now see in my head talking behind my back, spreading my name to others as just another one of those wannabes in the Internet who think they’re all big. I admitted I made a mistake but I can’t help but feel I’m being treated so unfairly like I’m some sort of criminal who cannot be trusted and has to be spoken to harshly to be put in place.

I’m doing my best to still contribute to the Suikoden community despite this and I’m not planning to stop. I just hope that people would stop cussing, shouting, making sarcastic gifs because sometimes they’re funny, most of the time they can just be very hurtful. I’m not speaking on my experience alone. I’m starting to feel bad for the others in the receiving end, no matter how “wrong” they might have been they don’t deserve it.

I know I made a mistake about this myself despite the tumblr newbiness I was and I didn’t mean it to be hurtful. I didn’t think it was. But now I know it is and I see that any others are being the same. They just think being like that while being right is right.

At this point, I’m paranoid thinking if a sincere post like this would get even more laughs, more patronizing, more arguing when I just wanted to say what I honestly feel, saying it politely and nicely. That’s how bad I’ve been affected by the Suikoden community. I get very scared of saying anything and this isn’t even tagged.

Fiction is the product of one person’s efforts (or a group, depending on the medium), but its meaning is interpreted in different ways by each individual who consumes it.

Suikoden is a series that consists of AT LEAST 500 characters. We learn a lot about some of those characters through story…

What you say is generally true but I could see where tigryphoness was coming from. It’s definitely wrong to say that all shippers are not true fans but we know that there ARE shippers out there who shows little interest to the game’s story or consideration to the character’s personality.

I mean, you know, there are people out there who would start a topic about [series here] but would first talk about OMG I LOVE THESE TWO WHO ELSE SHIPS THEM <33 and the pages would basically consist of that, rather than the series itself. I’ve seen it happen in Sword Art Online. When it came down to talking about the series’ character development, a lot of the people who were passionately advocating the popular shipping in SAO went silent.

So I guess the idea of “all shippers are not true fans” would come from perception on how they have experienced or/and seen discussions/fanfictions involving shipping.

Again, this is bullshit. Let’s say one person posts a thread about “OMG I LOVE THESE TWO WHO ELSE SHIPS THEM <33.” Do you then stalk them across the internet to see what they’re posting elsewhere? And what about the conversations they have about the games outside the internet? Why do you think you have the authority to judge them based on one post?

If people would rather discuss shipping than character development, then that’s their business. You are NOT the fandom police.

lol relax man. Like I said, I do agree with what you wrote and yes, if people would rather discuss shipping than character development, then it IS their business. I’m just saying that while the original poster of this argument was very fallacious, there is some truth we could salvage from there. Basically I just wanted to say that there are instances out there that gives this impression and chances are, out of the billion shippers out there, there may be a few of them who might not be real fans of the series after all, regardless of what evidence we may have in their activity whatsoever.

Please don’t be so aggressive >< I know I’m not the fandom police so please don’t speak to me so accusingly. I’ve had enough of getting this from the Suikoden community the first time it happened when all I’m doing is making a simple discussion.

I know you were trying to point out that YES IT’S WRONG and I DO agree at that. I’m just looking at where tigryphoness was coming from and how some of my experience could relate to this. But again, I said flat out I don’t agree with what s/he said.

just go talk to each other again lmao memories don&#8217;t fade and friendships stay longer in time. you build, you enjoy, you leave, then come back and laugh again. I don&#8217;t know what&#8217;s so sad about it. the only thing you&#8217;re mourning in this quote is the past and the past is what makes you. those joy that you two experience has become part of your character.
This is just me talking to this quote. Most quotes sound really poetic and sentimental but they&#8217;re not always wise. I don&#8217;t like people who take them for granted just because they sound nice.
