im weak & am just gonna,, ask for grandpa & atem,, maybe something to do with snow ?? 💦
Grandpa stirred his fresh cup of coffee as he glanced out the kitchen window, seeing the snow that was coming down. Hm, he hadn’t expected it to snow so early this year in Domino, but he wasn’t going to complain. Besides, heh, it was a good excuse to get Yugi and Atem to clean the sidewalk instead of him.
Speaking of, he heard someone come rushing down the stairs in the other room before running into the kitchen. Atem stared at his adoptive grandfather, his crimson eyes wide. “Grandpa! Did you see what’s going on outside?!”
“Heh, you mean the snow?”
“Yes!” Atem moved to the window, looking out of it. “It’s really coming down out there.”
Grandpa smiled a bit as he noticed the former king was smiling brightly. “Is this your first time seeing it?”
“Hm?” He blinked, turning to look at the older man. “Oh, no, I saw it snow last year when Yugi and I were still sharing a body. I didn’t really get to experience it that much cause, well, it was Aibou’s body I was in. But this time, it’s my own! I wonder what it will be like?”
“Word of caution, it will be very cold, so you going out in just your normal jacket won’t work well. We might have to get you some winter clothes.”
Atem smiled more at this. “Really? I saw what Yugi and our friends wore, I’d love to get stuff like what they got! I saw this amazing jacket Anzu had, the collar was furry, and so were was the trimming on the ends of the sleeves!”
Grandpa wanted to tell him that the jacket was probably for girls, but… well… that’s never stopped Atem from wearing anything that looked good on him before. He could spare a bit of money on a jacket like that, as long as it made his new grandson happy. He chuckled, sipping his coffee as he watched Atem stare out the window still, just as Yugi came in, rubbing his eye.
He looked at his other half before looking at the older Mutou. “He woke me up to show me the change in weather. Did he do the same to you?” He whispered.
Softly chuckling again, Grandpa shook his head. “I was already up. Just let him have his fun, snow in Ancient Egypt wasn’t exactly a very common occurrence.”
Yugi shrugged and went to get a coffee for himself, hearing Atem happily point out that it was coming down in bigger flakes.
It’s short, but I am a sucker for Atem just being interested in the idea of snow, I think this has to be the third time I’ve written a drabble request with this, haha.
In both versions, the group (Yuugi, Jounouchi, and Honda in
the manga, and Yuugi, Anzu, Miho, and Mayumi in the anime) head to the game
shop. In the manga, before they enter the shop, Honda complains that it’s a
waste of time. In the anime, Sugoroku makes a comment on how it must be nice to
be young, and Mayumi expresses her doubts, with Anzu trying to reassure her.
In both versions, Sugoroku then assures them he has just the
thing, claiming it’s how he got the affections of Yuugi’s grandmother. He turns
around, searching in a box on a high shelf. In the anime, he get impeded by
some dust, and Miho asks if this is a good idea, and Anzu hesitantly reassures
her. In the manga, it’s Honda who expresses doubt, and Jounouchi just shrugs at
Sugoroku finds what he’s looking for (blowing dust onto the
others in the anime), and reveals a blank jigsaw puzzle. In the anime, the
others question it. In both versions, Sugoroku then explains its purpose:
The little heart symbols would imply that he’s correct in
his description of this puzzle’s purpose.
In the manga, Jounouchi begins laughing hysterically, saying
he can’t imagine Honda doing such a thing. Yuugi looks completely embarrassed,
but to both their surprise, Honda agrees to take it, saying it’s just what he
needs. In the anime, Mayumi also eagerly agrees to take the jigsaw puzzle.
Sugoroku happily makes the sale.
Honda/Mayumi then wonder what they should write on it. In
the anime, Sugoroku says that since the next day is Sunday, she has time to
think about it, and the scene ends there. In the manga, Honda says he’s never
written a love letter, and intensely demands that Yuugi write it for him, even
going as far to threaten him if Yuugi screws this up for him (while Jounouchi
protests in the background).
As such, Yuugi spends all night trying to write the love
letter, noting that he’d never written one before either, and manages to come
up with this:
I don’t have any strong
preference for either version, honestly (other than generally preferring the
story being about Honda joining the group rather than rando green hair girl
having a crush on Jounouchi). Each work for what they’re doing. I do find it
odd that Honda wouldn’t write his own love letter, and not only that but
entrust it to someone who he was just saying had a grudge against him, but
Yuugi writing the message is necessary for what happens later, so I can’t
complain too much. Also with how…not great the letter is, that is amusing too.
