Reviews for Forgiveness To a Rival
JuJu-chan the Vampire chapter 1 . 4/11/2013
I like it. Very much so. :D 3
VampirefromPluto chapter 1 . 1/14/2013
Personally I think the next scene would probably involve Aster pouting about Zane man-handling him. And probably a half hearted fight between them leading to a more intamint scene. Just a thought. Please update soon!

I'm going to take this from the top. First of all, run a spellcheck. Also, learn where to put punctuation properly.

Now, whose fault is it about what happened to Ryou? It's RYOU'S FAULT. Because Ryou is a human being who is capable of making his own decisions and choices. Edo didn't brainwash or blackmail him or force him to do *anything*. It is not Edo's job to lose duels so his opponents keep feeling good about themselves. Not to mention that being Hell Kaiser was ultimately a very good thing for Ryou and for everyone else. If he didn't have that ruthlessness to him, he couldn't have dueled Johan and created the portal to send him Rainbow Dragon.

Trying to claim it's Edo's fault shows a huge, mindboggling lack of understanding of Ryou as a character. Ryou was called "the perfect duelist". He believed he couldn't grow and he couldn't change, that he'd reached his limit. What happened both with Edo and the underground proved he was wrong. This is a *good thing*.

Edo did not force Ryou into underground dueling. No one forced him. He stopped being able to win duels because he couldn't wrap his head around having been defeated by someone who didn't respect his opponent and his opponent's duel. This is *Ryou's own fault*. It isn't something anyone made him do. This is all because of Ryou and his own arrogance. His own personal personality flaws are what did it.

Ryou thought he was a duelist of respect. He found out, when pushed to the limit (not by Edo) that he was a duelist who wanted victory and who didn't care how he got it. No one forced this on him. He realized *this is what he genuinely wanted*. You can see a hint of it back in season one when he dueled Camula. Normally he respected his opponent. In that duel, he just wanted to beat her, because of how cruel she'd been against Chronos, who dueled her to protect Ryou.

Edo also doesn't cry about what he (didn't) do to Ryou. He's a badass snarker who kicks every bit as much ass as Ryou does, not a weeping little woobie. This is one of the reasons they genuinely do pair well together: they are equals. They each give as good as they get.

The mansion, by the way, didn't come with them. It was already there in Dark World. They were in the woods of Duel Academia when they were caught up in the portal. There weren't any mansions in the area.

Also, why would it be cold inside? If anything, it might even be warmer, because it would cut off any wind. Even if it was warm, there's this mystical device humans used once upon a time that I'm sure two reasonably mature people such as Ryou and Edo can rediscover in a time of need. It's called a *fire*. I'm sure a mansion has fireplaces. Especially in the bedrooms.
