SO THIS IS FOR ‘DREA, who is lovely and encouraged me to share it with tumblr, too. ♥

Ugh now I can vomit my gross feelings that I’ve (we’ve) been having ever since listening to Weight of Living pt 1 by Bastille 

There’s an albatross around your neck,all the things you’ve said and the things you’ve done:can you carry it with no regrets?Can you stand the person you’ve become?Oh there’s a lightOh oh oh there’s a light

To me it just illustrates, so well, on an intimate level a real facet of their relationship that doesn’t always get acknowledged.  Yuugi is a stronger person than Atem (like with regards to his internal stability). Yuugi is more capable of supporting Atem who actually shoulders a lot of burdens both conscious and subconscious as the other Yuugi and the pharaoh respectively.  Atem struggles through a lot of he series even though he comes across as someone who is really confident and strong.  And he is those things but it’s Yuugi who guides him back and sets him right when things go astray.  What initially starts out as Yuugi needing help and protection quickly turns around and works in the other direction.  They both grow so profoundly under each other’s influence. Not to discount their other friends who are also incredibly important to them but their relationship. It’s special.  And I really think it’s like this.
I just have a lot of feelings okay.
I also have an intense love of the use of an albatross as symbolism for ones burdens in all contexts :|

yuugiohs:

actually curious as to why people are attracted to Yami.

Beside his looks.

Responding to this because I’ve seen some generalizations getting tossed around that I don’t think are completely fair

I’m also gonna start off by saying I wouldn’t say I’m attracted to Atem or Dark Yuugi in any kind of physical or emotional sense.  Seriously that hair.  Also he’d be the worst date/partner/boyfriend/whatever ever imo.  I’m not going to go so far as to say he’s a bad person but I wouldn’t say he’s a good person either.  But he’s an interesting person for a lot of reason to me.

I will start off by saying that I have an incredibly strong preference for flawed male characters and Atem fits this bill beautifully. One could even argue that the series was born of his flaws.  DM is Yuugi’s story but it’s Atem’s journey to resolve those flaws.  What we are presented with in Millennium World is someone that is headstrong, with a incredibly strong conviction to do the right thing and be a good rule but he makes the mistake of isolating himself and taking it all on himself.  Add to this a healthy dose of a misguided sense of justice, plus an instilled mentality that a king cannot lose or give up and we have the makings of a disaster for which Bakura was the catalyst.

I cannot claim these words but they have become a mantra. Atem is someone who strives to do the right thing but goes about it completely the wrong way.  Which makes him neither good or bad but puts him in this wonderful grey area that gives one a ton of material to dissect.

I love Atem because he can be proud or arrogant, shrewd or dense, noble or uncouth, faithful or flippant as the situation dictates.  And I love that he has a fluidity of character that that allows him to never really question how his scales tip barring catastrophic events that force him to confront his issues.

People always use the example from Duelist Kingdom where he is willing to let Kaiba die to win a duel but lets not forget he was dueling in the tournament to get to Pegasus and save Yuugi’s grandfather.  He was willing to let something bad happen because he, at least in part saw his goal as being more right.  He treats both Ancient Egypt and Battle city the same way.  And he often does it alone

Yuugi is one of those catastrophes (I don’t use the word negatively) that he cannot ignore because Yuugi is someone who would always place on the “right” side of the scales but when this person who he cares about and believe he should trust and protect comes up and tells him he’s wrong and that the things he believes are wrong, he experience a conflict that is messy and complicated and demands a realignment of his beliefs.  Something that never happened in Ancient Egypt because the only person who stood up to him and said the things he needed to hear was an antagonist and thus easily dismissed as being on the “wrong” side.

I love Atem because beneath his cool, self assured, even kingly exterior is a fifteen year old kid (give or take) who was forced to grow up way too fast and is still struggling to find himself and his place even after that was ripped away from him. Atem is strong willed but not always strong hearted but because he’s such a loner it’s sometimes easy to miss how much internal conflict he goes through.

Atem is someone that believes he has to be infallibly strong but needs to learn the strength and grace required to rely on others.  Something he gets from Yuugi and their friends. There’s no questioning that Yuugi is actually the stronger of the pair, it comes from the man himself but I think watching Atem develop in Yuugi’s stride is more interesting that if it had been the completely the other way around (Although I would never say that Yuugi doesn’t experience his own development in reference to Atem but he grows much faster and more completely earlier on)  Horakty even confirms at the end that this was what was needed to succeed and thus confirms what he had been lacking all along.

So Atem is flawed but he also grows and I love that a lot too.

More superficially I also love what potential his character has as someone that exists aside two vastly different cultures. I love getting to explore a country that is important to me and ponder how that clashes and meshes with a lifestyle adopted purely from his host. I love playing with the possibility I love writing and I love rping it. I’ve done it for over four years now so it’s hard not to love something you’ve just put so much time and effort into.

Further more I know tons of people that feel the same way. I’ve had amazing conversations and debates with other fans that really do get it, that see past the cool and the hot although some of them are perfectly willing to admit that’s an aspect they enjoy too. It’s just not the whole picture. He’s far from perfect but he’s still a great characters that’s worthy of the attention he gets (although not necessarily at the expense of anyone else because most of these characters have something worth respecting)

Alright YGO fandom listen up. See this god damn puzzleshipping here.  Isn’t it cute?  It’s pretty nice right?  I bet you’ve seen it around your tags and your dash before, popping up every so often. 

This here is one of my favorite artists.  Let me tell you about her so you can start giving credit where it is due.  Now I know this is an old fandom with a lot of new fans but this right here is one of the prolific Yuugi and Atem artists from back in the day.  Her site is no longer updated almost at all but it’s called Interrupt.

image

These days she goes by the handle Negikoma. And all her stuff is still there for you to enjoy. And the best part about it?  She’s not even one of the artists that cares about you reposting her work ALL SHE ASKS IS THAT YOU CREDIT HER

What’s more? She has a pixiv you could use as credit too! Yeah, she’s moved on to Zexal and other fandoms these days but she still does sketches and little drawings of Atem and Yuugi from time to time.

image

Plus her Yuugi is totally a sassy dom and there ain’t enough of that at all in this fandom

image

And her pharaoh is a huge asshole but that’s beside the point /bias.

So seriously.  She’s cool but that’s no excuse not to credit. Update your book marks or save this post or do whatever you need to do because she deserves it.

Reblogging for reasons.  Every day that goes by I am kicking myself a little more for not getting a Yuugi when I had the chance :|
It annoys me because Dark Yuugi is still easy to find but I have no use for him XD
