Day 08 – A moment, in great detail

((OOC: Both of these turned into *several* moments, in great detail. Hence, they're both behind LJ cuts. I also only just finished writing them last night, so they're a day late. Translations for Yami's Khemetic speech will follow after Yugi's moment.))

Day 07 – Your best friend, in great detail
I don't play favorites among my friends. They're all my best friends, and they're all my family too.

I've been friends with Téa Gardner since elementary school. She reached out to me, was kind to me, defended me against bullies whenever she could. She always stuck by me.

Joey Wheeler and Tristan Taylor are more recent additions to my group. I met them in middle school, and while they teased me a lot, they did generally hang around me. And even though they teased me, they never actually bullied me. So I considered them friends even before I solved the Puzzle. But what "officially" brought them into my group was the incident that prompted me to work on the Millennium Puzzle all night.

Needless to say, Yami is also my friend. He's been as much of a father to me as Grandpa has.

I met Ryou Bakura shortly after I solved the Puzzle. He'd just moved to Dominion with his father from London. Bumped into me outside the school—we were both late!—and ended up sitting next to me in US History. We started talking in whispers during class, and I invited him to join me and my friends for lunch. He's stuck with us ever since... until he ran away after Téa nearly got killed by Malik. I'm still worried sick about him.

Jeni, my girlfriend, used to be in the popular group at school. I already explained the details of her departure from that group. Rika Miyagi, Joey's girlfriend, was also in that group and departed it for almost the same reasons. (Almost in that she left it because she was dating Joey ;).)

April is... special to me, in a platonic way. (After all, she's already dating Clark Kent!) She helped me find out where Bakura was and if he was okay. It helped alleviate a lot of my fear for him, and I'll never forget that.

That's everyone... so far.

☥ ☥ ☥

My two best friends were Malik and Methos. We grew up together, the sons of the Pharaoh, Vizier, and Captain of the Royal Guard, respectively. Malik is five years older than me. Methos was one year older than me. We were as brothers to one another.

When Malik was 15, he received his first twelve visions. Methos and I wrote them all down, though he's never seen the logs. By now they're not likely to have survived.

When I took the throne, Malik and Methos assumed their father's roles. Malik was my Vizier. Methos was the Captain of my Royal Guard. Malik died with me in the ritual that imprisoned the Shadow Games. ...We left Methos behind. We didn't tell him we'd be coming back in modern times, even though both of us knew we would be. We were scared that he would... try to find a way to become immortal or something, and he would destroy himself looking for something that was impossible to get.

Sometimes, I regret that decision...

Day 06 – Your day, in great detail
...Well, since Yami and I share a body, no reason to have both of us answer, so again, I'm the only one writing this time.

Uh... it was a school-day, so I woke up around... 7-ish? Had a quick breakfast, coffee, etc, then we went off to school. (Yami and I, that is.) It's not a long walk, maybe five or ten minutes. I'm usually there early. Hung out with Jeni, Rika, Joey, Tristan, and Téa until school started.

Today was a "C" day, so I had... Latin I first period, at 7:45 AM. Second period, at 8:35 AM, was Science Fiction & Horror. AWESOME English class. Announcements are at 9:25 AM, always, every day, no matter what the rest of the schedule. At 10:40 AM, had my third class, World History (Yami always enjoys this one). 11:30 AM, I had Trigonometry (I'm the only Sophomore in the class... go figure). 12:15 PM is lunch. 1:15 PM is Choir. Those two also remain the same, every day. At 2:05 PM, had Phys Ed. At 2:55 PM, had Physics. Finally, at 3:45 PM, we got out of school. Mostly, it was an uneventful day, except for the one or two bullies who tried to beat me up. I mopped the floor with them instead. That was the reason I started taking Tae Kwon Do in the first place. :)

Following school, I had Tae Kwon Do for about an hour. Then I went home, helped Grandpa out at the store until he closed, then Yami and I played games until about 8:00 PM. Fable II and Fable III, mostly. :) Then I started winding down for bed. Finishing off with this, then I'll be off to bed. :)

Day 05 – Your definition of love, in great detail

You can have everything in the world, but without love, you have nothing.... Love is patient. Love is kind. Love always forgives, trusts, supports, and endures. Love never fails. When every star in the heavens grows cold, and when silence lies once more upon the face of the deep, three things will endure: faith, hope, and love. And the greatest of these is love.

- 1 Corinthians 13:4 (Paraphrased a bit.)

I'm... not Lutheran anymore. Was at one point. Even sang in my church choir. But that *points up to quote* has always been one of my favourite quotes from the Bible.

I have a few things to add to the Bible's definition. First, Love is unconditional. You either love someone entirely, always, regardless of what's going on, or you don't truly love them.

Second... love knows no gender. "Don't judge someone on whom they love, but rather on whether they love." I have my reasons for holding that opinion, but for the moment I'll not discuss them.

Third... there's more than one kind of love. Obviously, there's romantic love. There's also a platonic love, which I feel for all of my friends... and there's familial love, which I feel currently only for two people: Grandpa and Yami.

Aw, shucks, Yugi.

Quiet you. You'll get your chance to talk later.


It's... actually kind of hard to define love. But you know it when you see it. I've seen it a lot. Between Yami and Setep-sy, to name one prominant example in my life. Also between Joey and Rika. To a certain extent between me and Jenifer, but... I've discussed our insecurities about our relationship in a previous answer. Between me and Grandpa, too. There are lots of people I love, and I'm happy I've got them. :)

☥ ☥ ☥

...Ra's beak, how can I follow up when Yugi gave such an excellent definition? *sigh* Suffice it to say I agree almost entirely with Yugi's point of view.

...Also, Yugi? Love you too. In an entirely familial way.

^_^ <3

...I actually don't have much more to say on the matter. Yugi's definition coincides pretty much exactly with mine.

Day 04 – What you ate today, in great detail
Obviously, since Yami doesn't eat anymore, I'm the only one answering today. :)

Uh. Breakfast was quick. Pop Tarts. While I was walking to school. And coffee. I always have coffee in the mornings. (Grandpa doesn't necessarily approve, but he knows what I'm like when I'm not caffeinated. Which is to say, liable to fall asleep in class, and cranky.)

Lunch... cafeteria food. Yuck. But all I really have money for at the moment. >.>

Haven't had dinner yet. Don't know what we're having either. ^_^;;

Not as much detail as the meme calls for, I suspect, but oh well.

☥ ☥ ☥

As Yugi said... I don't eat anymore :) I enjoy food vicariously through Yugi's senses.

Day 03 – Your parents, in great detail
...Christ on a crutch, do I have to? -_- I hate talking about my parents...

...Aaand Yami's telling me to suck it up, so, here goes. I'm going to have nightmares tonight, I just know it...

I don't like my parents. In fact, you could say I hate them.

If you haven't figured it out, I'm not the kind of guy who hates people easily or often.

Their names are Ennosuke and Chiaki Mutou. Currently, they're serving a life sentence (with the possibility of parole) at Coos County Prison, on charges of aggravated assault, endangerment of a child, battery, and battery against a child.

Yeah. That's why I don't like talking about them. I've still got the scars. Especially that big, long one on my back from when they were arrested. My father attacked me with a kitchen knife when I brought the police home after school.

I'm not sure what gave me the courage to finally tell the cops. I'm not sure I'll ever know. I was six. The abuse had gone on as long as I can remember. Thankfully, it was only physical and mental. I never had to deal with... *wince* sexual abuse.

At any rate, after they were arrested, Grandpa took custody of me and eventually adopted me.

That's it. I don't think I can talk about it anymore...

☥ ☥ ☥

My parents were the polar opposite of Yugi's. I can't imagine having a more loving family.

My father was Pharaoh Semerkhet. My mother's name was Kainebet. Despite all the time he spent, well, ruling, Father always spent time alone with me every day. Naturally, though, I still saw more of Mother than I did of him, and more of my friends Malik and Methos than either of them.

My mother actually outlived me. That was unusual in the time I lived. It also meant that my son, Atanu, got to know his grandmother. (I never knew my grandfather, Anedjib, or his wife. Most children didn't know their grandparents in my time.)

Father, on the other hand... Well. If he'd been alive when I died, I would never have taken the throne, would never have been Pharaoh. I would still have been the Crown Prince. He died five years before I did. I think, after the deaths of Saikeded and Atskare (Methos's and Malik's fathers, respectively), he lost the will to live. They had been as close to one another as Methos, Malik, and I were.

I was there when he died.... It was the hardest moment of my entire life up until that point.

After I died, I'm sure my mother acted as regent, either until she, herself died, or until Atanu was old enough to hold the throne himself. I'm unsure of events directly after my death. After all, I was asleep.

I miss them sometimes. I know they are happy in tuat, however. That and my memories of them are enough.

Day 02 – Your first love, in great detail

Uhm. I guess that's Jeni. Thing is, we're still in high school, and... she's the anchor to Yami's wife. So, uh... neither of us is really sure if what we feel for each other is actually us, or if it's Yami and Setep-sy's feelings for each other bleeding over to us.

Uhm. Regardless of that, I actually have had a crush on her since before Yami and Setep-sy woke up. So maybe from my end they actually are my feelings. I still don't know about her end, though.

We've more or less known each other since we were little. Her mom and my grandpa are friends; they found the Millennium Items together, along with Bakura's parents. We've been going to school together our whole lives, but until recently we were in completely different social groups. I've always been unpopular, and she's always been popular. I mean, she's pretty, her parents are fairly wealthy, that's to be expected, right?

That changed after the Duelist Kingdom tournament. She and her friend Rika ended up sticking with me and my group through the tournament, mostly because they were both Millennium Item owners, as were me and Bakura. We got to know each other a little better, and... after that... well, Jenifer says she started feeling like she should be hanging around me more. Her 'friends' rejected her for that. So she started hanging around us full-time. Got to know each other even more.

We decided to start dating when five of us—me, Jeni, Rika, Bakura, and Joey—got sent back to ancient Egypt to help Yami and the others get the ritual to banish the Shadow Games together. Jeni and I saw how Yami and Setep-sy were around each other... and... we decided, even if we can't tell if it's us or them, we should try to sort that out.

So, here we are, still unsure...

☥ ☥ ☥


My first love is also my wife, Setep-sy. We met when my friend Methos and I snuck out of the palace to explore Men-Nefer. (Yugi says nowadays it's known as Memphis.) We were exploring the bazaar, and Setep-sy was grocery shopping for her parents. We ran into each other (literally!), got to talking... we both liked each other right away. She didn't know I was the Crown Prince. The whole point of sneaking out was to be an ordinary citizen for a day.

And then there was a Shadow Monster attack. The dragon destroyed the neighbourhood her parents lived in within seconds. She was hysterical; while Malik went to get my father and Saikeded, Methos's father, I tried to keep the dragon at bay. I was unable to; my father destroyed it. Saikeded died during the struggle. And since Methos's mother had died in childbirth, both he and Setep-sy were now orphans.

I convinced my father to allow Setep-sy to stay in the palace. I... felt responsible for what had happened to her family. Over the next five years we became close. We fell in love shortly before my father died, and were married at my coronation. We had a son, Atanu, but we both died when he was five.

It's been 5,000 years, and my feelings for her have not faded. I don't know if we're influencing Yugi and Jenifer or not; I hope we aren't. They both deserve to find love of their own.

Day Meme, stolen from April :D

Day 1: Introduce Yourself
Name's Yugi Mutou. 15 years old, practioner of Tae Kwon Do, gamer, and all around geek. Oh, and I'm playing host to a former Pharaoh of Egypt.

That's a long story.

I live with my Grandpa, Solomon Mutou. He used to be an archaeologist, but now runs a game store in my hometown of Dominion City, OR. I'm... not terribly fond of talking about my parents, so for now let's just say that they're out of the picture. So I'm living with Grandpa.

Until 2 years ago, Grandpa was the one who owned the Millennium Puzzle, which had Yami's soul sealed in it. Grandpa said he was unable to solve it, so he gave it to me, thinking I might be able to do better. I spent a year trying to solve the thing, disassembling it again every time I got stuck. One year ago, one of my friends decided to play a joke on me, stole a piece of the Puzzle, and threw it into the school swimming pool, though at the time he did it, I was unaware. Joey and Tristan teased me a lot, but they were the closest thing to friends I had at the time, aside from Téa, so, while upset, I didn't make a big deal of it.

One of the school hall monitors, who was corrupt as Hell and also a bully, witnessed the event, beat up Joey and Tristan, and tried to get me to pay him an outrageous sum of money for his "protection". I didn't want to, but he threatened me, saying if I didn't, he'd do the same to me.

Look, I didn't have much of a spine back then, okay?

I went home, and while I tried to get the money together, I found I couldn't concentrate on that task. Instead I started working on the Puzzle. Every time before that I'd always gotten stuck at the same spot, but that night, I bowled my way past it until it was finished.

Minus that piece Joey had tossed in the swimming pool, of course.

Grandpa came in about then and dropped the piece on the desk, saying that Joey had dropped it off. ...Well, he didn't say it was Joey outright, but his description of the guy who left it with him matched. After he left, I placed the last piece in the Puzzle.

And that was when I first met Yami.

☥ ☥ ☥

I'm Tepeysa-Yami, former Pharaoh of Khemet. When I was on the throne, I was known as "Atemu" to most of my subjects. I'm deceased, obviously, and share a body and mind with Yugi.

I was 25 when I died in a ritual meant to imprison a force called the Shadow Games, which would have destroyed my country and people. Myself and eight others sacrificed our lives, and for the most part, we were glad to do so. Personally, if I had to do it all over again, I would, and twice as hard. I can't speak for my fellows, of course.

Our souls were imprisoned in the Millennium Items to help keep the Shadow Games sealed away. Regardless, we knew one day they would start to break free, so when they did start to free themselves, we would wake up, bonded to a single individual who would help us keep the Shadow Games imprisoned.

Yugi is that individual, for me.

I've been "awake" and "living" in the modern world for two years, ever since Yugi solved the Millennium Puzzle. I've found it an interesting experience thus far. Hopefully it'll remain an interesting experience in the future.

Yugi is sitting in a couch in the Nexus, holding up a hand-written sign reading "April! :)", in a weird sort of homage to the way private drivers guide their customers to them at the airport. Yami's currently nowhere in sight, by virtue of the fact that he's pretty much still asleep, though he's aware that Yugi intended to try to take April to Dominion today. He'll likely wake himself up when April shows up.

Contact post!

"Hi! You've reached Yugi Mutou's cell phone! Leave me a message and I'll call ya back ASAP!" *beep*

((Both Yugi and Yami can be reached via Yugi's voicemail. After all, they share a body. And thus senses.))
This journal is intended only to play as Yugi and Yami as they appear in the Dreams Born, Fears Subside Saga. Thus they are AU versions of them.

Canon point (in regards to the Saga) is a year prior to the first installment, For Tomorrow We Die, which takes place two to three years after the Duelist Kingdom portion of Yu-Gi-Oh!.

Yugi's ProfileCollapse )

Yami's ProfileCollapse )


Long lost words whisper slowly to me
Still can't find what keeps me here
When all this time I've been so hollow inside
I know you're still there

Watching me, wanting me
I can feel you pull me down
Fearing you, loving you
I won't let you pull me down

Hunting you, I can smell you - alive
Your heart pounding in my head

Watching me, wanting me
I can feel you pull me down
Saving me, raping me, watching me

Watching me, wanting me
I can feel you pull me down
Fearing you... loving you
I won't let you pull me down
