Day 21, “Furious”
I had fun with this but I also realize I want a fanfic that’s basically a rewrite of the DOMA arc, but it makes sense. Like, take away all the weird illogical magic and plotholes and replace the villains’ somewhat tame stories and motivations, and let it be more personal rather than a clichée “let’s save the world… AGAIN!”. But let us keep the feels because they were good. Just not necessarily in the same manner. Like…
I would actually love to see Yami get his soul taken by the Seal of Oricalchos, and Yuugi driven by guilt tries to save him but battles with his own confidence along the way. The duel against Haga on the train is a painful battle where Yuugi tries his best to still believe in the good of people, but Haga manages to push him to limits no one knew existed and for the first and last time, Yuugi snaps.
I’m sad now. And I have to write that fic because I need it.
