[personal profile] imagines
I'm not sure whether to thank or kick myself for signing up for [livejournal.com profile] 30_kisses. It forces me to write even when I think that pulling my own teeth might be more enjoyable. ...I realize this is a good thing for me, who would otherwise write about 50,263 words in one year. (You know what month most of them would come from.) I have written 263 words this week, and rearranged them until my eyes crossed. I'm sick of looking at them, which means it's time to quit messing with them. At least they're words I like.


30_kisses prompt 2. news; letter
Summary: Exit the one and enter the Other.
I don't own Yuugiou. I wrote this for fun, not for profit.
Words: 263

Wednesday's Child


Here is what Ryou knows is true:

1. Mother is dead, and there is nothing anyone can do about the
screechbang.

2. Amane is dying miles away, imprisoned in a hospital.
Don't they know she is afraid of the light?

3. Father has gone off to play mad scientist in Egypt.
The funeral-goers did more gossiping than mourning, when he failed to attend.

4. The only Bakura left in England has been hearing a voice in his head since the
screechbang. And there are headaches.

The first letter is written before death wins and Ryou loses. The dark one is still weak, and only gets hold of his hand long enough to scrawl a line across the page. Ryou shakes it off and begins again on a new piece of paper.

The second letter is written after death has won and Ryou doesn't know it yet. The dark one laughs as it inserts words Ryou didn't mean to write-- die instead of live, hate instead of love, kill instead of kiss. Ryou has to recopy the letter four times before it says what he intends.

The third and successive letters are the ones the rumor talks about: Bakura Ryou writes letters to his dead sister, sleeps with all the lights on, and hasn't got a father.

The dark one holds him close and does not let him explain the truth.

Exit Ryou.
Enter the Voice.

Sentence No. 2 is absolutely splendid. ^^; "Don't they know she is afraid of the light?"

Sentence No. 5 seems a jump from the previous style. I can't decide yet if I like it. >>;


But I love the idea of Bakura already starting to control Ryou's hand, messing up his letters...agh, it's so great.

"The dark one holds him close and does not let him explain the truth." Seriously. Hearts.

I can't wait for moooore.

Yeah, I don't really like #5. I may drop it. I don't have to have five.

Bakura thinks it's funny to mess with a grieving brother, the bastard. ♥

Thanks for the comment! ^^

Five is a nice number. But remember that four is the number of death! /attempts to sound cool

I feel like someone should slap Bakura, the big bully. Poor Ryou. :(

Shiji desu! 8D Bakura is a shinigami? Or he'd like to be. Hm... Bakura using Ryou to kill people is somehow scarier than Light killing people all by himself. Has Death Note been crossed with Yuugiou yet? I think Bakura and Ryuk would get along fine. XD (Have you read Death Note yet? I can't remember.)

Yes, I love Death Note! Until a certain chapter, anyway.

Wow...you know, I don't think it has been. That would be a lot of fun to read.

Do you mean the chapter where there is a death? I was spoiled for it awhile ago, and haven't gotten there yet. I keep starting new chapters wondering if it's going to happen. ;_; I still don't know *how* it happens, though.

...yeah, I'm still cursing my bout of "Why don't I find out who dies in all my fandoms? :D"

Ooh, really? What pairing? I picked 30_kisses because 30kisses looked intimidating... >->;;

My bad, I was thinking of [livejournal.com profile] 7snogs. xD; I was going to do [livejournal.com profile] 30_kisses, but I wanted to get some of my other claims done first.

....you kind of have a lot of claims. o__o
