Re: Videogamer Atem from this post:

@hiramiyugioh​ replied: XDD whatever game he plays, Kaiba manages to find and challenge him

Atem spent 3 days trying to master DOOM, going straight for Ultra Nightmare (he had to restart four times), before delving into the multiplayer. Around half an hour in, a person called BEWDown2Me starts hunting him in every match. Atem hasn’t worked out yet how Kaiba has so many different accounts. Or when he learnt to play DOOM. Or how he’s doing this if he’s in an investor meeting til 6.  

Pokemon they have to arrange to play. Seto counter-teams him and still loses. 

Skyrim isn’t multiplayer, so that required some thought. They end up achievement racing. Atem wins by not getting distracted with cheese wheels.

He has to explain in chat that this is a Build Server, not a PVP Server when a blocky character in a Kaibaland hoodie shows up while he’s playing Minecraft. Atem gets bored after making a simple house. Kaiba makes a replica Blue Eyes. Silently, Atem concedes that round.

“Don’t see it as being a Priest- “
“-say ‘again’ and the console goes out the window.”
“See it as playing the only character who gets to wear robes with a dragon on.”

You were oblivious to his stare. Or the reasons behind it. You were talking to Lily about how immature she was acting about the whole ‘James-thing’. Not that you were any better. And then you heard it. The annoying sound of another girl’s laugh. It made your heart squeeze in pain.
“You’re so funny” she said.  How cliché. You wanted to bang her head against a wall. Multiple times. You had turned your eyes and your entire attention towards him- and her. You didn’t know this but once he noticed that, he flirted back even though he didn’t really want to.
“Did you sit on a pile of sugar? Cause you have a pretty sweet ass” he said seductively. Now, you wanted to bang his head against a wall. She giggled. Your mind was filled with venom.
“Hey, hey, Y/N, loosen up, love” you heard Fabian telling you. You furrowed your eyebrows but you realized that you were holding his arm in a rather tight grasp. You let go and apologized immediately. He shook it off like it was nothing.
 "So, how is it to be perfect?“ he flirted with you after a while. You laughed because in all honesty, you never considered yourself to be perfect. You may were a good student and you may had many date invitations but none of it mattered.
“Stop trying to seduce me Prewett. It’s not gonna work” you said trying to eat your lunch in peace. The truth was that you were indeed trying to be confident and to appear strong and carefree but intact as well. However, you knew you were none of those things. You weren’t confident at all. You never believed that you were worthy of anything great and that was somebody’s fault.
“Stop being intimidating” Lily whispered to you. Intimidating?  You couldn’t possibly believe that someone -anyone- would be intimidated by you. You raised an eyebrow at her, questioning her very statement.
“Yeah, that’s exactly what I am talking about” she said before she turned away, continuing her lunch. You were ready to fire something back when you heard him using another awful pickup line-and her(whoever she may be) giggling.  Great. 

It had been almost a month. A tortuous month. He had gone off the rails for his little game. He had flirted with every girl in the school-except you. He never flirted with you. Ever. He wouldn’t even talk to you anymore. You had started to believe that t you had done something to annoy him, offend him even. He wouldn’t look at you. Whenever you were engaged in a conversation with the infamous Marauders, he would come up with an excuse-a ridiculous one- and leave. And it hurt you deeply, but you never showed it. You had truly become intimidating. You had focused your anger towards classes and you thrived on all of them. Even Potions. Slughorn thought it was his teaching but really, it was you trying not to murder a certain raven haired boy. You were currently in the middle of your Care of Magical Creatures class.
The professor had asked something that nobody knew. You, however, since you had studied almost the entire book, knew exactly what the answer was. (A/N credits: Harry Potter Wikia!)
“The Nundu is a large East African beast that resembles a leopard. It moves silently, despite its “gigantic” size, and is considered by some to be the most dangerous creature alive. The breath of the Nundu is toxic and filled with disease so potent that it can wipe out entire villages of people. The Nundu is extremely hard to subdue and has never been defeated by less than around one hundred wizards working together. Compared to the Dragons that are stunned into submission by around ten wizards, the prospect of this rare beast is truly terrifying” you said, proud of yourself and earned your house twenty points. At least, something good could come out of this situation.
You turned at the sound of a sigh coming from the desk right behind you, only to be surprised when it turned out to be Sirius the one who sighed. ‘Really?’ You thought to yourself. You locked eyes with him. For a second he just kept looking at you but then… He blushed and lowered his gaze. He blushed? You were left puzzled.
You returned your gaze to your professor but not your attention. Why was he acting like that?  You tried to eavesdrop. You knew it was low of you but you needed to know.
“Is Sirius Black blushing?” you heard James teasing him.
“Shut up, Prongs” he fired back, not giving any sign that that meant something. You stopped. ‘Okay, okay, pull yourself together!’ You silently reprimanded yourself. You cursed the moment you had let your heart fell for him. And all the other members of your body. He wasn’t even your friend. You didn’t want him to be your friend.
“Miss Y/L/N, do you know who was the first to capture the creature?” your professor asked you. Thankfully.
“Eldon Elsrickle, sir” you answered in a haze. Another thief, you thought. But he had just stolen a creature. The thief sitting behind you had stolen something far more valuable.

You were running like your life depended on it. Maybe it did. You were late for Transfiguration. The next thing you knew, you had bumped into someone and you had fallen down. Today wasn’t your day.
“Well, you literally fell for me, didn’t you?” you heard him saying arrogantly. When he helped you up and realized it was you, he froze, let you go and lowered his eyes.
“Oh,Y/N,  I didn’t know it was you. Are you alright?” he breathed out. Yes, of course, he hadn’t realized it. You glared daggers at him and mouthed a forced ‘great’ before you walked away. You had just turned around the corner when you heard them and you halted.
“Really, Pads? Really?” James asked amused.
“Well, I got distracted” he answered defensively. You could hear the eye rolls.  "By what, Padfoot?“ Remus teased.
“Her!” he said breathlessly. You froze. What? 
“She is like - perfect and beautiful and smart and all the things I am not and I can’t even flirt with her. I am worse than Remus when it comes to her” he exclaimed in a dreamy but despaired state. You couldn’t help it. Your lips we’re forming a grin and your heart was beating faster. Merlin, save me.
 "Ask her out already” Remus said and from what you were guessing, not for the first time.
“She would never say yes, Moony” he said a bit gloomy.
You revealed yourself from your hiding spot but he had his back turned on you. “Why don’t you ask her? ” you softly questioned. His friends were smirking. He didn’t move or talk or… Function like a human being. James rolled his eyes and took initiative. 
“Will you go out with my idiotic friend?” he asked you on the verge of bursting out laughing.
“I would love to” you said melodically.
He turned around. His eyes were wide and his mouth was starting to form a smile.
“You are worse than Remus” you mumbled underneath your breath. But you loved it.

  • Remember, ‘90s kids, there were two sides to the decade we all get nostalgic about. One side had Animaniacs, Sega Genesis, and that weird parachute activity from school, among many other things. The other side consisted of gross misuse of fish-eye lenses and terrible loud, neon vomit color schemes. Remember that when today’s industries continue to market your childhood back to you.
