Ok so that’s exactly how I usually would picture Yugi in Ancient Egypt stories. (Unless it’s a slave fic again XD)
It just suits him so perfectly well. He’s confitent, cheecky and absolutely adorable in this picture to the point where I would propably hug him to no end. I also support the color scheme of Yugi having the deep violet/purple colours whereas in my imagination Atemu is usually the one to get all crimson cape and eyes. Anyone agreeing on that?
Now let’s talk about Heba for a little bit.
I really love the Idea of the same meaning for the Egyptian name and especially if it’s a fanfic where Yugi/Heba is really born in Egypt I quite like the Idea of it since his love for games and that he is excellent at them just shows that it’s still Yugi all the same.
But I kind of got stuck on the Idea if it’s time-travel fic, with Yugi being so desperate to see Atemu again that he risks to go back in time, that he would choose the name Schay/Schai (=Ancient Egyptian God of Desitiny). Idk why but this thought really got stuck in my head and now I cannot imagine a more fitting name than Schay for Yugi to choose if he ever goes back in time to see Atemu again.
For me it’s just very fitting that Yugi, who definitely strongly believes in destiny (as much as Yami/Atemu for that matter. I mean come on, all the destiny speeches clearly show you thatXD) would undoubtly believe that meeting Atemu was his destiny. Even so much, that he would believe that going back in time is his destiny as well. And that’s why I kind of got stuck with the name “Schay” for any time-travel blindshipping fanfic.
