So what if one day Atem gets a call by Isis saying the archelogists found what they are 90% sure is Priest Seto’s tomb. Atem decides he wants to see for himself, he needs to. Isis managed to get him a special permission to go around and see what they found, and Atem knows at once that yes, this is where they buried Seto, they are all good archelogists but the weren’t around in Ancient Egypt but Atem was and Atem gets it the moment he takes a look at the writings.
And then he sees a mummy of a tall man and he feels like he’s been punched because one thing is knowing his friend became Pharaoh after him and then died and then Atem came back 3000 years later but seeing what remains of his priest is another thing. Mummies don’t rot like normal corpses, but that doesn’t mean they are pretty or lifelike and Atem has to take a moment and many deep breaths after seeing the thousands years old dry remains of a person he once knew, his head spinning with how damn long it had been since he had last seen Seto alive; sometimes he almost forgets the centuries that passed between his last memories and the moment Yugi completed the Puzzle.
In the end Atem decides to offer his help to the archelogists, to identify any mummies they may find or better understand the informations on the walls. With many things, he can’t help, Seto didn’t die young and even the thought of how many things happened to his friends after his death leaves Atem feeling dizzy. And where he can help it’s so hard, because he never really realized just how much time had passed. He keeps it cool, tries not to give in to his emotions - Isis notices, she tries to understand, but she wasn’t there, even when Atem points at a carved figure of a woman and says, ‘I think that’s you’ she can’t feel as Atem does - even cracks a joke here and there - he texts Kaiba a Congratulations on your past self’s six children and he and Isis laugh until tears at Kaiba’s irate answers.
And when it’s all done, when he did all he could to make history known because he had to, all those people deserved to be remembered, Atem lies down on his bed and cries, for all the things he couldn’t see and for those people he misses and for how out of place he feels, how lost and confused he is even if he never felt so after getting his memories back.
There was a smaller mummy in a secondary room, completely anonymous, hidden, almost as if it was meant not to be found by anyone ever. It confused the archologists, because nothing says who that person was or why it’s there, they only know it was a young man who seems to have died a violent death and that the mummification process had been executed with extreme precision. Atem hadn’t said anything, but he does send a picture of it to Yugi, and only Yugi, with the caption I think this may be a selfie
LOOOOng ask ahead. So I was going through your ask joon blog, which is super cute, and I came across a post where joon says he likes drawing and stuff. And that made me remember that actual namjoon is not that great at drawing. But see it got me thinking, why do we make fanfictions or AUs about real people. Because as I see it, we don’t know these people through and through. Obviously celebrities keep some part of their life private. And yet 
yet in fanfiction we assign these characteristics to them, either exaggerating or diminishing their qualities to fit whatever we need it to be. And I understand why sometimes people would want to see a person a certain way, but that’s kinda your private ideas, keep them to yourselves, not spread them around. Like how in so many fics namjin ar so soft and pure and angsty and smexy, when in reality they are just two normal guys who do normal things and chill out. Im not trying to be all 
HETRO HETRO HETRO, im just saying that whatever their actual orientations may be fanfiction will always be off and incorrect because these are real people who are not ‘open to interpretation’ like fictional characters. And that sort of resonates with my problem for AUs as well. As much as Im a sucker for AU fanfictions there is still something that bothers me. I once asked a ReaderXBTS fic writer how it didn’t feel like going too far by writing smuts about BTS members who are(once again) 
) actual living people, and I think the answer I got was that ;but you know we aren’t really thinking its them you know…’ which aside from being sort of against the point of a reader insert fic, gives off the vibe that you literally could have created your own character to put in this story but you are just randomly using their names and some habits to give the impression of a certain person but not actually claim responsibility for it. I hope I don’t 
offend by using your blog as an example, but your ‘joon’ and actual namjoon are different people, but it feels as if you’ve borrowed his identity for some cutesy fin drawing (which they are no doubt, cute and funny). If these weird ramblings don’t make sense to you here’s a question. Why do people not want BTS to discover their fanfics, why does it embarrass them. Is it because they know that there is something wrong with writing 
fics about real people? What are your thoughts? And Im really hoping that you don’t give me a crap response like ‘They are celebrities, they should kinda expect it, it comes with the job’ because Im holding you to a higher standard [end]
lmao ‘long’ indeed XD
Ok let’s start slowly and get some things out of the way. Firstly, please don’t worry, I don’t mind you using my stuff as an example, so don’t feel concerned about that, it’s all good :D
The reason people wouldn’t want BTS (or whoever else it may be) to find their fics are numerous and all quite different. But generally it’s because they’re fictional and therefore obviously made up and not representing the actual people properly, not to mention it involves the writer’s own little fantasy so it’s embarrassing. Some reasons are: fics containing ships, fics containing personality types pulled to the extreme, not to mention all the smut, kinks, mpreg(why is this a thing) and all very explicit at that.
So there’s that.
I agree with you when you say that x Reader fics not actually portraying that actual person is hypocritical. Cuz it’s true. It is. Like that’s the purpose of a x Reader fic/scenario. But that’s also why I really really dislike x Reader fics/scenarios and avoid them like the plague.
Back to normal fics… I think there’s a few more layers to understand for this.
I’ll tell you what my and my friend’s view on this is, because we’ve talked about it before.
First of all, in real life, Rap Monster and Namjoon are two different people. V and Taehyung, Suga and Yoongi, etc etc. what you see on TV, on your phone, on stage is not the real person. That’s, unfortunately, not something a lot of people seem to understand, but that is the truth. We as fans don’t know them now and probably will never know them, because when a camera in on, so is this little mask that everyone with that kind of lifestyle needs in order to keep sane. In that way, what a lot of fans actually fall in love with isn’t the person,, but the idea of that person. And that’s what’s being portrayed in fics as well. Not the person itself, but the idea. What’s in fics isn’t Namjoon, but Rap Moster. Except everyone calls him Namjoon because imagine reading an intense moment and seeing Rap Monster I think I’d burst out laughing.
So that’s one thing. Secondly, “why use them instead of original characters?”. Well… why make fanart? People write and draw about people or characters because they like them and it’s fun. Another reason is because it’s easier to insert a person/character that the reader already has an image of in a scenario. Because then you don’t need to waste time on describing hings about them, because people already know, so you can more quickly get into your story. There’s an extra layer too and that’s because of exposure. You have ideas, if you write or draw something for the first time the chances of people seeing your work is scarcely close to zero. But if you adapt your idea to fit in with a show, or with characters or with people that already have a following, the chance of your work being seen by others immediately skyrockets. A lot of people read fanfiction. A lot of people like seeing art about their favorites. Whether people like to admit it or not, or whether they even did it unknowingly or not, the fact of the matter is that you as a creator have way of a bigger chance of getting your stuff known if you do it within a fandom. Of course, not everyone does it because of that, but it’s a thought for quite a few people, tho I think that’s more in art than writing.
There’s also the very easy reason of: It’s fun.
I don’t think it’s wrong to write fict starring celebrities. I think it’s fun and cute and a great release for a lot of people. I think some people push it a bit far, but that’s also mainly just because of my personal preferences.
There’s plenty of people who are well aware of the fanfics and who’ve actually read a few. Fr example Zico and really everyone in Block B made fun of it one time, Zico talked about some smut ones and even commented that they were too soft lmao. I’m pretty sure they would consider it a milestone to find fanfiction XD
On November 13, 1996, the first chapter of the manga series Inuyasha was published in Japan’s Shonen Sunday magazine. Thank you Rumiko Takahashi for giving us such a beautiful series and tons of characters that we adore! Inuyasha had a big impact on a lot of people’s childhoods and a lot of us are still obsessed with the series. Thank you ♥
i just found out some people dont preheat their ovens when they are baking things and im mad its meant to be a certain TEMPERATURE because it has to be baked at that SPECIFIC TEMPERATURE for a SPECIFIC AMOUNT OF TIME in order to make the most HIGH QUALITY food possible. youre literally screwing yourself over and probably over/undercooking your food and i am DISGUSTED. follow the RECIPES the first thing you do is preheat the oven for a REASON so you dont even notice the wait for it to heat because you will be busy preparing ANYWAY like use common SENSE. i would drop a friend for this.
