            Kaiba is not going to start talking to the eyeball, no matter how much or how hard it stares at him.  He’s seen what happens if you start mixing with magic.  You end up kidnapping people and having your goons threatening them with guns and placing dungeons in your childhood cartoon castle.  Or (as harmless as it might seem at first glance) you end up getting schizophrenia and acting like you’re two different people and thinking that you’re a spirit from Egypt or something.  Seto can hardly be described as a non-risktaker, but every chance he takes is calculated.  He’s not going to just wander into a maelstrom that he doesn’t even need out of some misguided sense of curiosity and dare the world to do its worst.  He’s seen its worst.  There’s no sense in tempting whatever malicious irony might lie in store when there’s not even a payoff.

                Kaiba stares at the paused video on the screen.  This can’t be right.  But then, delusions brought on by losing a simple card game and falling unconscious were hardly to be trusted, especially if possible brain damage is involved.  After all, Pegasus had knocked him out using something.
               
There is no way that his idiotic rival is being helped out by the ghost of a kid at their school who had died a year ago.

Chapter Summary: Anzu gets a lecture from a very unimpressed 'big bro'.

Word Count: 415
Rating: teen

                Anzu nearly screams when she wakes up and sees a looming figure, only to realize that she’s only familiar with one person taller than Jounouchi.
                Who currently has his arms crossed and that typical “why do I even waste my time with you?” cold stare.
                “I didn’t imagine you to be a coward,” he states bluntly, and it takes her a moment of surprise to realize that she’s managed to disappoint him.  An odd thought, considering that she’s certain he rarely expects the majority of people to do or be anything special.  It’s probably easier to impress him.
                She’s also had to deal with him about as much as Yugi and Yugi’s stage persona, so she realizes his first instinct would have been to order her into car so she couldn’t escape this little talk.
                Maybe it’s an imposition, having him just show up in her house uninvited, but it’s a courtesy she’s willing to bet would extend to few others.
                “Where’s your entourage?” The question’s hostile, and he grimaces.
                “They’re outside.  I figured you’d be more comfortable that way.”
                “You just figured I’d be more likely to listen to you,” she accuses, and he shrugs like this isn’t all some big revelation.
                “What can I say; I like results.”
                He looks away and acts like he’s talking to the air.  Just thinking out loud.  “Yugi’s been distracted.  You may not think I have a heart.  Just call it self-interest if you like.  But Yugi cares.  He likes you.   You have a backbone and don’t appear to have an agenda, given my extensive research.  If he had to choose someone, you’re not a bad choice—for a friend or something more.  None of us make friends easily, and what you’ve inadvertently done…”
                “It’s not stupid to protect yourself!” she yells.  It’s the most alive she’s felt in days, sitting here, arguing with Kaiba.
                “No,” he disagrees.  “…it’s stupid not to take precautions.  And if you really feel you need this protection, I can’t stop you.  But with every move you make, you should be aware of what you sacrifice.  We all do what we have to, to survive.  Just be aware that you’re leaving a broken Yugi in your wake.”
                Anzu growls.  It’s weird, but then, she’s angry.  “So, what, you were just hoping to marry him off?”
                He shakes his head as he stands and heads for the door.  “No.  That was Mokuba,” he mutters.  She’s fairly certain she wasn’t meant to hear that.

            The movement of a pawn.  “I suppose it’s all one big conspiracy,” a voice states dryly.
            The knight takes the pawn.  “Now, Kaiba, what would make you say that?  You’re getting paranoid.”
            The young CEO stares at the board with a glare worthy of a general.
            “Being acquainted with Yugi and the rest of the idiots will do that to you,” he agrees.  “But I’m a young CEO in what happens to be an oddly cutthroat field.  You’re the only one I can even vaguely tolerate, let alone, to a certain extent, trust.  I believe you to be intelligent, self-motivated, willing to take risks.”
            The British man shakes his head.  “That’s my queen,” he corrects, and that’s one bishop gone forever.
            Good riddance.  People needed to stop bringing in destiny and miracles and actually act to bring them about.  “You may seem all gentlemanly, but that’s hardly the whole.  I just don’t bother.”
            Edgeworth snorts politely, leaning back in the chair and sipping the tea.  “No, I doubt anyone would accuse you of that.”  He sighs.  “Unfortunately, Wright has the same talent to attract the ridiculous.  And it is our rivals who shape us, save us, hone our skills.  And—if we’re unlucky—drag us down with them.  We’re caught in this fight to the bitter end.”
            Kaiba makes an irritated sound in the back of his throat.  Perhaps, like Duel Monsters, this is yet another mind game—yet the two are one and the same, manipulative yet brutally honest.  Unapologetic for who they are or how they’ve gotten here, for here is a good place to be.  “I’d walk away.  They’ve certainly caused me enough trouble.  But…wouldn’t that be weak?”
            It’s a question with no answer, not that Kaiba expects one.  He needs to bring his best game, now.

            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.”

A Note on the use of honorific: Yugi's feeling a little distanced from Anzu right now, and he thinks she's still mad at him, so he's going with an honorific to be safe.  (also I don't think they're flying right through the middle of it, but they do have two magicians and one of the most powerful dragons on their side.)

            Yugi’s phone rings, and he looks briefly startled before relaxing.  “That’s our ride.”
            Anzu stares at him.  “In the middle of a typhoon?”
            He sighs.  “Anzu-chan, do you really want to stay trapped in a building with those thugs lurking around?  I doubt they were the only team sent.  Or that they don’t have even more Monsters to summon.”
            “No, but…”
            He smiles and lays a hand on her arm, blushing slightly.  “I promise I won’t let anything happen to you.”
            The magicians nod, and…well, if anything’s capable of protecting her from a storm, it’s magic, so she follows as he calls and gets directions.
            By the time they walk out of the doors, the rain’s falling in sheets, and she can barely see.
            Until it lets up slightly, and there’s Kaiba, Yugi’s super serious scowling rival, sitting on top of a freaking dragon.  Its white scales shimmer in the rain.
            “Y-Yugi, that’s a dragon.”
            He’s cheerful as he answers.  “Yes, she is.”
            “As much as I’m sure she deserves the attention, this is dangerous enough as it is and I don’t appreciate using her as a glorified taxi service, so let’s get this over with already,” Kaiba growls.
            Yugi clambers on like he’s done this before and holds out a hand to pull her up, too.  “Come, now, this is a noble rescue.”
            “Well, I wouldn’t have had to rescue you if you hadn’t locked the God Cards away.”
            Yugi’s mirth disappears.  “I can’t run the risk of them falling into evil hands again.  I don’t have near the security you do.  And no, I’m not giving them to you for safekeeping.”  It’s an old argument, judging by the tone.  “Knowing our luck, one of your next KaibaCorp breaches would involve stealing them.”
            The dragon spreads its wings and launches with a cry—straight into the oncoming rain.
            “If those fools trying to ruin my company weren’t stuck in cyberspace, I’d do a lot worse to them.  They’ve done enough damage as it is.”
            Being on a dragon in the middle of a typhoon would scare her more, but she figures she’s still a little in shock, and it’s surprisingly warm and protected from wind and rain.  Kaiba’s growling to himself somehow more than normal, and she guesses that…somehow, he’s done this before.  And Domino hadn’t noticed a dragon in the sky.  And it was usually easier.
            But Yugi takes her hand, warm and steady and with that same sexy confidence, and it’s the anchor keeping her in place as they fly to safety.

I love working with hacking!Kaiba and his computer.  His computer only showed up once, and that's wasted potential because it was so different than any other AI I've seen.  (Nothing against Jarvis).  Kaiba had so much potential.  I mean, you can have him growl at the gang all you want, but at least give him stuff to do too

                 “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.”

there were no tears there are no pictures I deny everything categorically
(which is weird because, seriously, I don’t get emotional at television, except for maybe once when they killed off a character in Supernatural, I forget who because there were so many)
…but this was one thing that really bugged me about the finale
So here, have a fix-it
Because Kaiba is awesome and had wasted potential as a character to write
And I will wring that potential outta him and the computer and everyone else I can think of when writing

Note: this part draws a little more on S0.  Mokuba calls Seto the more respectful oniisan, while Yugi gets addressed as Aniki (more familiar/casual).  I would've used 'Big Bro', but technically he's calling them both that, given Yugi got adopted, so...  I'm enjoying the Yami & Kaiba interactions--Kaiba's helping out, but it's not just out of the goodness of his heart.  I dunno, they're just...both very realistic.  Maybe it's 'cause they're enjoying sniping at each other, which makes it easier to write.  IDK.
