pharaoh atemu

I love this picture to death. The expressions are just so very perfect.

Yugis barely believing what he sees with that teary and surprised expression and Atemu just smiling reassuringly at him. Everything in this picture is on point!

It gives me so much feels really.

Puzzleshipping is easily my most emotional ship by far.


Is it a sin... look that damn hot?
Many german fans hated the movie (we germans are just stupid, they hate EVERYTHING THAT IS GOOD - like 5Ds.) but actually I really loved the animation style they used for the old series ♥ I just wished there was more from my old love Atemu~
Haha see the choker? Chuuya I see what you did there~ (besides Yami is smaller than Chuuya xD)
Anyway, just a bit fangirling. Damn hormons in spring ;-;

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.

Day 5: Fav Yami

Well, it’s no surprise that Pharaoh Atem/u takes the spot of the fav Yami since I am a Puzzleshipper at heart ;)

Every Yami in the series is different in his own way and I like that. Yami Yugi is the only Yami who, in the end, was positive for Yugi and who developed into a good person, and that’s a nice message and I like that about him. Therefore, especially love the development of his character, specifically in the manga since he was ruthless and merciless at the beginning (Season 0). Slowly but steadily, thanks to Yugi and his friends, he learns the importance of kindness and friendship. At the end, he even learns to accept a defeat with a smile because it was Yugi who defeated him. As a puzzleshipper, I love the dynamics of his relationship to Yugi. He is always concerned about him, believes in him and protects him. They are so close it’s just impossible for me not to ship it :P

I left the yugioh fandom a little, for one or two years but I always remembered my boys (Yami, Atem and Yugi) because they literally live in my bedroom. So when I came back into the fandom I just realized that some people think puzzleshipping implies “pedophilia”.
I’m shocked and I laughed at this.
Well, all the fandom knows that Yami is 4000 - 5000 years old + the years he already was when he was a pharaoh (17 - 18 years old).
But when the serie began Yugi was 15 - 16 years old so it’s not pedophilia in any way you look.
Atemu was sleeping all those 4000 - 5000 years so when he woke up he had the mind of a 17 - 18 boy.
Atemu is just a person that have to mature at a very young age in order to become a king but that does not mean he is a pedophile just because he fell in love with a 15 - 16 boy.
I don’t know why some people can think a great character and heroe like Atemu/Yami Yugi is a pedo…
Watch the japanese version, read the manga and you will know the reason why we ship puzzleshipping.
Also you will never ever think again puzzleshipping is pedo material.

Day 24: Fav DSOD Moment

I had a pretty hard time deciding on that one, actually. There were two moments in that movie that took my breath away, gave me shivers and made me smile. Two moments that made my so very very happy.

As someone who’s been a Puzzleshipper for almost 9 years, I really loved the silent bittersweet moment between Yugi and Atem/u. It made me happy, it made my heart ache for them and it was just so perfect. Atem/u coming back to help Yugi out and they obviously had their mind link restored for this short time and communicated and I loved how it was just so very private that even we, the viewers, weren’t allowed to hear it. It was just for the two of them.


I really need to give the favourite moment to the moment where Yugi stood up to Kaiba and made him back off. It was epic, it was badass it made me shiver and it made me so, so, so proud of Yugi. He grew so much and it was a delight seeing him like that. This moment showed everything I wanted for Yugi in that movie and my expectations were met in that regard.

I also took into consideration that within the whole of the series, we’ve been blessed with so many Puzzleshipping moments. There was no shortage of Yugi and Atem fluff. But we’ve seen Yugi in his prime only for a very short time, at the end of the series. That’s also a point why in the end, for me, Yugi standing up to Kaiba weighted more than the Puzzleshipping moment, though I adore them both.
