I gotta write a fic about it, but like 90% sure the reason Yuugi took so long to solve the puzzle was because solving the puzzle when Atem was still in it was like– playing othello.

Yuugi like moves a piece and Spirit of the Puzzle like hm interesting move, but you are outmatched.

Yuugi solving the puzzle was the first game he won against Atem.

King of Games.

I’ve been rereading YGO and there are a lot of things I’d like to comment on. i should make more posts about it :D

but one thing that never gets old is how cute and small Yuugi is in the beginning

srsly look at him

and then compare him to the end of the manga:

Yuugi i’m so proud of you

  • Yuugi: *exists*
  • Atem: ❤️
  • Yuugi: *breathes*
  • Atem: ❤️❤️❤️
  • Yuugi: *smiles*
  • Atem: ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️-
  • Atem: 🙄 *notices all the hearts floating over his head* 😨 *tries to stuff them all under his cape*
  • Yuugi: -? 😕
  • Atem: 🤗
  • Yuugi: ... 🤔 *tugs his cape back*
  • Hearts: *released*
  • Yuugi: 😮
  • Atem: 😱😰😔
  • Yuugi: ... ☺️😘♥️
  • Atem: 😳😵
  • Yuugi: 😅

I just really like making Atem sad and having Yuugi comfort him (;v;)♥ it never gets old :DD

Also, nightmare hurt/comfort scenes are my absolute weakness. One of my favourite headcanons is that Atem has nightmares frequently after returning to the living world — I think returning from the dead shouldn’t be just happiness and sunshine all the time, so it takes time before Atem can feel competely comfortable in his new body and new life!

Oh, and this is kind of a continuation to this comic I made previously! And as you can probably tell, I’m planning to make a continuation to this too :D ♥

In the DSOD sub, Yuugi says he and Atem talked during that scene, even though we as the audience didn’t get to see it. I’m going to pretend that the conversation went something like this:

Atem: So why aren’t you and Anzu married yet?

Yuugi: …………………………

Yuugi: Please go back to the afterlife now.
