(some back story, since I kind of feel like this drabble 'verse seems...finished.  Since Yugi died, he and Yami kind of merged when Joey finished the Puzzle, so when the Ceremonial Duel happened, it was Yugi|Yami vs Kaiba.  Yugi finally got to move on after his death, but...well.  You'll see.
also given the Ushio in 5d's I feel a little sad--he's kind of cool.  but he also was in the perfect position for this to happen, so...sorry there, Ushio, you drew the short straw.  sorry about the homicide, buddy.  try again in a different world I guess.)

                It’s surprisingly easy to move on.  Of course Jounouchi mourns and misses his best friend, but the world keeps turning.
                He doesn’t turn his friends away, especially as, well—Yugi, Atem, whatever you call him—had left him to be the leader on his own, to keep them all from falling apart.
                The weekly visits to the grave help.  Shizuka had been worried, until she’d come along one day.
                He’s just as full of life at school, just keeping his friend up to date with the latest (like his attempts to woo Mai—he’s sure the other would be interested, considering how much he pushed them to be a couple before he’d left).
                And he knows that, someday, he’ll join his friend and Mahaad and all the others, but there are those he has to take care of—like Grandpa Muto, like Shizuka—and stories he has to live through so he can tell his friend, and learn more games so he can be teaching the Pharaoh for once, rather than the other way around.

“I think he would like it if you were the one to finish the Puzzle,” Grandpa Muto says, and Katsuya glances over to see Yūgi’s eyes shining with tears.  He nods emphatically.  Feeling the weight of the moment, he puts the puzzle piece in place and feels a ghostly hand cover his own.  Together, the friends slide the piece into place with an audible *click*.

In this universe, it's Katsuya who becomes King of Games, with some help from friends (including one persistent ghost).  It's an interpretation of what might've happened if Yami had come too late (due to Katsuya's interference, but they still become friends anyway).  As scared as Katsuya gets of ghosts, it's a neat idea to have him interacting with a ghostly Yūgi.

            Kaiba pulls aside his diminutive rival.  “I’m only going to say this once, Yugi, so don’t bother asking for a repeat performance.  But…thank you for saving Mokuba.”
            The Other Yugi is already shaking his head, smiling as Joey watches aghast.
            “If you should thank anyone, thank Tristan.  He rescued Mokuba and kept him safe while I dealt with Pegasus.  And, of course, I would never have made it this far if not for your help.”
            “What, dealing with that imposter?” Kaiba sneers.  “That was personal business.  I couldn’t let someone like Pegasus,” he spits out the name as if it’s an insult itself, “…take over my company, and the imposter wasn’t going to get away with hurting Mokuba.”  He pauses and looks Yugi in the eye.  “That being said, our business is now concluded.  I don’t owe you anything.”
            Joey fumes at that, but Yugi considers it true—they did help each other out, after all, and the man is somewhere in the vicinity of being a friend.  You don’t owe friends.
            “So don’t bother calling me the next time you idiots are too nosy and get yourselves in trouble.”
            Yugi smiles at that.  “Hopefully, Kaiba, we won’t need to.”

Chapter Summary: Jounouchi and Honda are just looking out for their friend.

            Anzu’s not a little intimidated when Honda and Jonouchi pop up seemingly out of nowhere and fall into formation beside her like they’ve been walking her back from school the entire time.
            “You’re probably wonderin’ what we’re doin’ here,” Jonouchi states conversationally, earning a glare from Honda.
            “The thought had crossed my mind,” Mazaki admits dryly.
            “Really?  We’re going with the straightforward route?” his friend asks, shaking his head.
            The blond shrugs, looking completely casual, but the both of them are on the alert like she’s the enemy and it’s admittedly scary.  The two can come off as a bit rough, but she’d never considered them as possibly dangerous before, since they were friends with Yugi.  “It’s neva failed me before, an’ I figured she’d appreciate it, rather dan wastin’ her time.”
            Honda sighs again but nods.  “To follow my friend’s lead…we want to make sure you’re not going to hurt Yugi.”
            Anzu is startled. “Why would I hurt him?”
            Jounouchi sighs.  “What we mean is, we wanna make sure you’re good enough for our buddy.”
            It takes a few moments for that to sink in, after which she feels the stupid blush creeping up her face.  “Wh-why are you asking me this all of a sudden?”
            The blond gets a somewhat creepy look on his face, like he’s thinking about something pervy, and she almost slaps him just on principle.  “Well, I asked, an’ he hasn’t forgotten ya, not afta all dese years.  I hope ya appreciate what dat means.  It’s not like dere weren’t pretty girls at our school, but it seems Yuug is a romantic and kept holdin’ out for ya.  So, I thought, and Honda here agreed, dat askin’ ya if ya would have sex—”
            Swifter than she can react, Honda’s elbow strikes Jonouchi in the gut.  He keeps walking calmly as if his friend isn’t gasping, paralyzed, behind them.  “What the idiot means to ask, is that if Yugi asked you for a date, would you say no?  And if you said yes, would you be gentle about it if you change your mind?  He may be stronger than he used to be, but he’s still sensitive about things, and, well.  If you play with his feelings, he’ll get hurt.”
            Katsuya manages to catch up, holding his stomach, but otherwise he’s acting like nothing happened, and his voice is only a little off.  For once, he’s completely, utterly serious, which she didn’t know he was capable of doing.  “An’ if he gets hurt, we have ta hurt ya.  Not too much, you’re a girl, but Yugi’s our friend an’ we’re not gonna just let anyone play wit’ his feelings.”
            She takes a deep breath.  She means to respond to the accusations that she’s some kind of jerk who would lead someone along, let alone someone as amazing as Yugi, but what actually comes out of her mouth is, “He likes me?”
            Honda studies her face closely, then chuckles.  “You know, Jounouchi, I think she’ll do.”
            “Yeah.  De arcade?”  That gets a smile and a nod, as if she suddenly doesn’t exist, and they walk off, and it’s…well, it’s surreal.

Chapter Summary: Jounouchi's been told that this isn't some random fangirl, this was a girl who protected his best friend before they'd even met.

(shipping only mentioned (thus far), Joey being Joey (or Jounouchi, in this case.))
(if I mess up names, tell me--i'm only vaguely used to them from S0--on the other hand I might keep calling Jaden Judai. /em shrug)

            Jounouchi hasn’t stopped teasing him since he’d had that talk with Anzu, and as much as he appreciates his friend and as much as he’d missed Anzu, it’s really getting a little old.  “So, come on, ya wanna reconnect wit her, right?”
            Given the emphasis and the weird face his best friend is making, he can easily understand what he’s getting at.  And, well.
            He wouldn’t mind.  Anzu’s grown up, in more ways than one.  She’s beautiful, now… (not that she ever wasn’t, his mind reminds him), and…
            …He’ll probably have a few dreams, but that’s not the point.  “I don’t want to scare her away, Jounouchi!”  He’s louder than he means to be, but then, he’s prone to accidentally blurting things out.  He continues, quieter.  “Anzu is my childhood friend, so her friendship is worth more to me than…”  He waves his hands vaguely, unable to think how to continue.  “She’s probably…dealt with people who don’t see her as a person, and I…I don’t want to be that person.”  His voice is small, on the verge of tears, rather like the Yugi he’d been before Duel Monsters and Yami and everything else.  “Besides, I…it’s been quieter, um.  After he moved on, but it still…I have the feeling that it won’t stay that way.  Maybe it’s better I don’t hang around her too much.”
            They don’t seem like they’re going to be switched onto the PE sports teams anytime soon, so Jounouchi sits down beside him, clapping a hand on his shoulder, doing his best to be comforting.  First things to deal with first.  “Yuge…if she’s at all as stubborn as she seems, then you trying ta keep her out of it ain’t gonna do anything.”
            Yugi smiles.  He still looks a little worried, but he’s calmer than before.  “You’re probably right, Jounouchi.”
            And now for what’s more important.  He’d thought it was just a simple crush, at first, but given the way his best bud is acting, it can’t be something so easy.  “You’ve looked at other girls.  I know ya have.  But she’s the only one you’ve ever looked at twice, or am I wrong?”
            Yugi’s shoulders slump.  “No, you’re not wrong,” he answers in a defeated voice.  “I never forgot about her.”
            “Well, den…don’ worry about it.  We’ll help you, an’…don’ worry about takin’ it slow.  She’d appreciate that, if she’s at all de friend she should be.”
            Yugi smiles.  “Thanks,” he states, before he processes what his friend has said.  “Uhhh, Jounouchi?  What are you planning?”
            “We got dis, mista King of Games.”  Katsuya slaps him on the back and then joins the game again on the players’ call.
            Yugi sighs and stares at his hands.

                 “Has anyone seen the driver you had?  Or any staff whatsoever?”  a voice joins their game, and Joey holds his hands tight to his head and screams.
                 “NOT YOU TOO, KAIBA,” he yells from the corner, and Kaiba winces.
                 “What is this nonsense, anyway?”
                 Yugi glances up, wearing a sweet smile.  “We’re telling ghost stories.  Joey…isn’t particularly a fan.  We told him he didn’t have to stay for it, but, well…”
                 “I ain’t goin’ out dere for da ghost ta eat me.”
                 Seto grins.  It’s not exactly nice.  “You know, you’d think with everything you’d been through he’d be just a little better with this.  I take it he wouldn’t like to hear the story behind some of the Fiend cards?”
                 “I toldja he was evil!” Joey wails.
                 Kaiba shakes his head, amused, and turns serious.  “Back in the real world, I know how an event like this is run.  There should be people everywhere helping set it up.  I don’t think I’ve seen anyone other than us since we entered this place.”
                 Joey makes some kind of whimpering noise, but Yugi nods thoughtfully.  “You know, I think you’re right—”
                 The lights go out, and Joey screams.  A light reappears, which turns out to be Tristan, grabbing a flashlight, and Kaiba’s kneeling in front of the shivering blond.  He slaps him, hard.  “Come on, Wheeler.  You beat me once.  You may appear like an incompetent duelist but it’s time you stopped acting like one.”
                 “Easy for you to say, Mr. ‘Nothing is Real’.”  Joey bites back, but there’s a little strength in his eyes again.
                 “Well, in this world, which is a place that most of you don’t seem to live in, it’s much more likely that this is a power outage.  Which is something that any good businessman should’ve prepared for,” Kaiba sighs.  “We should look for the staff.  They may know how to fix this, though I’m not holding my breath.  So far, they’ve shown themselves to be utterly incompetent.”
                 “How do you know?  We haven’t even seen them,” Tristan argues.
                 “Exactly,” he responds, then rolls his eyes and elaborates.  “An event like this, employees should be around to take care of the VIPs.  I don’t believe in coddling people, but you don’t just go and ignore them, either.  And usually in places like these, you need people to stop idiots from wandering into areas and, say, turning off the power or getting drunk and setting things on fire. Where are they?”
                 “That’s…a good question,” Yugi answers, and then smiles and rolls his eyes at his friend.  “You know, it’s more likely that whoever this was just didn’t have staff on hand to begin with than they all disappeared, Joey.”
                 Kaiba blinks, then nods.  “That’s actually a good point for once, Yugi.  But if so, they’re clearly not planning anything normal for this tournament.  Let’s go find whoever or whatever’s here.  They have some explaining to do.”

Second Person.  Don't ask why; I haven't the foggiest.

            When you wake, Tristan hits you in the face, but Joey holds him back from trying again.
            “What are you doing, Joey?  This…this jerk played the Orichalcos and lost Yugi’s soul and you’re just okay with that?”
            But Joey shakes his head.  “Da Pharaoh didn’t play it, did he?”    He looks directly at you, and his shoulders slump.  “Let’s see if I got dis all straight in my head.  Yugi played the Oriwhatsit an’ it made him act wrong.  Den, he lost his soul.  An’ we’re gonna get his soul back an’ make dose bastards pay, but not by usin’ dere evil mind mojo card of doom.”
            Your head’s swimming a little, and then you realize—you’re still wearing that cursed stone.  You tear it off and your head feels clearer, though you want to cry and scream and hit whatever you possibly can.  Or get hit.  Yugi’s voice is telling you that you don’t deserve it, but you know that if he hadn’t stepped in, you would’ve played it, too.  Yugi would also tell you that that doesn’t make you any more guilty than he was, that no one could resist its power forever, but he’s not here to say anything.  Still, the thought make you feel more normal, and Joey’s speech…well, you’d hardly have credited him with it at the beginning, but he’s actually good at both summarizing and motivating.  “That’s all correct, Joey.”  You hesitate, but he claps you on the shoulder with one free hand.
            “Don’ worry, Pharaoh.  I don’ blame ya, any more den I blame Yuge for da things he said.  It was that Ori-thingie talkin’, an’ you’re our friend, too.  Friends stick togetha.”
            Those are words you haven’t heard; you thought you were just included in the circle because Yugi was, but here’s Joey telling you you’re one of them.  After centuries of darkness alone, you’ve found a circle of friends without even trying, and it’s all thanks to your partner.  He brought you all together.  He believed in you.
            You won’t fail him; any of you.  Joey sees the determination in your eyes and grins.  It’s a little frightening, but it doesn’t bode well for your enemies, which…
            You’ll win, you’ll beat them, and you’ll remember Yugi’s lesson.  No one else is losing themselves to this evil, not if you can help it.  And if you need a sobering reminder that rage gets you nowhere, you have one memory, close to heart.

             He sits on the couch opposite her, waiting for her to say something, but the silence just stretches out awkwardly instead.  “You know, if you don’t tell me what’s wrong, I’ll just have to camp out here on your couch, eating all your food.”
             Usually, a promise like that would get some kind of reaction from her, but instead she just turns over to face the couch so she doesn’t have to see his disappointed face.
