So, I just want to say—I think it’s been nearly twenty years since I first discovered your Bakura fics on some small site somewhere. I’d only just been introduced to the concept of fanfiction, and as an obsessive fan of various fandoms for years the idea seemed so foreign and magical all at once; and given Bakura was my favorite character of Yugioh, yours were by far my favorite. When Harry Potter became so huge, I didn’t think it looked like something I’d like—but given how much I loved your writing I ended up checking out this crossover anyway, and it was through your early chapters I was first introduced to characters like Snape and Dumbledore, and only after that I decided to go back and read HP after all.
This work is absolutely amazing, from the way you handle the relationships among the Yugioh crew to the way they interact with Harry and the other students and teachers of the HP world—you blend the worlds together in such a believable and compelling way it feels like everything you’d want a crossover to be. Your writing and this project were such an important influence for me those years ago, and I’m sure they’ve also been an important influence for others too. I used to talk to my sister about this story all the time, and eventually she would ask me, ‘Well, did you ever review it?’ And I’d have to be like, ‘Uh, no.’
So, here’s my review a decade and a half late. Just an amazing work, again it was so hugely influential for me, impressing on me as a young writer not just what I personally loved reading in fanfiction, but the potential impact it could have on others. I also very much enjoyed the chapters posted after the reins were handed off with Chapter 41, and while it would have been awesome to see the work finished, writing and any kind of creative work is tough, and sometimes the energy just isn’t there, and it’s time to move on. Still an absolutely incredible work and experience, thank you (both of you) so much for writing and sharing this, and hope more readers get to discover and experience it in future. Hope whatever your current endeavors might be are going well, and thanks again!

It'd be kinda funny if Bakura went to war with Wizarding Britain. Trick them into gathering for one massive battle against his monsters and "Have you heard of this thing called Mirror Force? No? Allow me to demonstrate".

I wonder if that really was Yami Bakura at the end there…

“The soul who shares this body with you.” There is no soul sharing. A lot of people get this wrong in the fandom. There is only one soul. Yugi is the reincarnation of Atem. Somehow many fans still think you can be a reincarnation but the soul of your past self exist separately. This is incredibly stupid. A reincarnation is the person’s soul reborn in a new body. The Millennium Puzzle contained the memories of Atem. Either there was an imprint of his mind as well or a split personality formed from the memories being of a completely unique person when Yugi first put the puzzle on.

No Dumbledore, we would want you to contribute to the greater society. Just as everyone else does.

Honestly, compared to being able to use the OP powers and monsters of their cards, Hogwarts is laughable. Although, it can teach useful stuff that isn’t about killing everything around you.

You gotta love rulespergs, considering that the first chapter of this fanfic came out in 2002 I doubt this site even had a crossover section at the time.

Why is yami bakura no longer evil? There is no reason for him to become good whatsoever

I cannot possibly leave this story without a review although it has been ten years since the last update.
I say this for possible readers to come by due to mere coincidence such as myself. I never looked for a crossover, don't even like them that much, but this story caught my attention with its many favourites.
And I daresay it is so damn justified. This has to be the single greatest (long) fanfiction I have ever read; I just have to give you that credit.
Your writing truly amazed me, there were so many feelings and thoughts turing up, it felt like I was reading an actual novel with the only exception that I already new the characters and most of their personality and you got them so well done, every single one.
I have to admit that I had my doubts with the new author but he/she continued just as awesome.
It is such a shame that this story was left unfinished and without a word of explanation but understandable to some extend regarding the time you began writing (the fifth Harry Potter book hadn't even been released!) and the thing called "life" that actually does exist for some people. But just consider the moment you left us...
One more chapter...just...one more...
But long story short: I cannot put into words how much I love(d) this story and I will read it again and again. And to everybody to come across and see that this was abandoned a long, long time ago: Just read it. It will be more than just worth your time.
