Great chapter! I'e been reading your stories for a while but never reviewed cause they were either already finished or I was too lazy to review. You're a really good writer and your stories are always creative and fun. -Alena

Oh my Ra, or any other deity out there, I absolutely adore your stories. Especially the puzzleshipping, tendershipping, bronzeshipping, and puppyshipping you have written about. Honestly, those four along with mobiumshipping and blindshipping are my favorite in the Yu-Gi-Oh! Fandom. Please keep writing stories like this, and update soon!
Maybe you should go a little harder on Tea, I don’t really like her much, plus she gets on my nerves easily. You know, with her outfit, she wouldn’t survive well in the wilderness. Maybe have her get curious at some point and make her get lost? Then Yugi and Yami can spend some time together, Ryou and Bakura too once he manifests. 3 It would be a nice simple torture with no one to blame but Tea herself.
Maybe you could have Mai meet Serenity and have the latter look up to Mai as role model or something? Serenity is kind of shy and it would help make her more outspoken instead of only speaking up when Joey is in danger. Plus, you could pair Mai up with Rishid/Odion Ishtar, they’re around the same age, Rishid is only a year older.
So anyways, I just have to say that I really like how the story is going right now. Most of the time, the stories I read are basically the anime or manga with little variation, with the small changes revolving around the personality or gender that does little to affect the plot. The way you combined and altered the anime and manga makes this way more interesting. The only suggestion is that you should try to slow down the plot a little and to develop the characters a little more. It feels as if some of them stay exactly the same before evolving after a huge plot event. Even Tea, no matter how much I despise her, deserves to develop more as a character. Despite the fact that she is obsessed with Yami, she IS still that kind of nice outspoken dance-crazed girl who was Yugi’s ‘friend’ for a few years. At least make the broken friendship seem more gradual than based on her obsession. It gives her more definition as a character and won’t make the bashing in the story seem overdone like a lot of the other stories I read do. Just a suggestion (but don’t take it the wrong way, bash Tea and Vivian as much as you want. I don’t like the two of them much.)
Questions now! Why doesn’t Yami realize that shadow magic is linked to Duel Monsters? In the recent chapters, Pegasus reveals the origins of the game, surely the fact that summoning and the way Yami was released in the beginning with all of the shadow monsters pip some interest and curiosity? It would make the plot be more interesting, in canon, they don’t start summoning until Memory World, I believe, and if you make them start delving into it early on, it would make the plot seem more unique while giving Yugi some protection because I felt really bad for him when Yami was unable to protect Yugi at some points because it would only make things worse. How come Tea doesn’t realize that Yugi is dating Yami? It is pretty obvious and she can’t be that stupid and oblivious. I mean, come on, there were hints everywhere. It would be nice if that forest talk scene between Yugi and Tea is about Tea confronting Yugi about it before Mai’s scream sends them into a panic. What are you going to do about Mahad? He’s Dark Magician now, and Mana is Dark Magician Girl (if you go off the fact that their ka is linked back with their ba after death, the soul should be connected to their monsters, allowing them to reappear to help the gang when the times comes for it). Are you going to free them and have Mahad reunite with Isis? If you are, pair Mana up with Serenity, it will be an interesting shipping (one I don’t think I’ve seen before).
Other than that, update soon!

Ohh, that is an interesting twist. Loved how you protected the Exodia cards from weevile. Looking forward to more!

Yessssssssssssss! YOU'RE ACTUALLY CONTINUING! I might have to reread how did it come to this. This was a VERY nice come back chapter. In the books and subbed anime Tea's name is Anzu and Tristan's name is Honda.

Lol. That last line xD

I gotta say; the long wait was worth it. I like that Bakura and Ryou are going to start keeping their distance from Tea when he started to get terrible vibes from her since their old lives are warning them that she once tried to cause trouble for Yami, Yugi and everone else in the past and maybe Mai might catch on later on. I like that you are having Yugi and Mai be cousins in this story as well. I wonder how the two will react if and when they find out that they are related. I have an idea of how Tea could find out about Yami and Yugi's relationship: she could probably catch them having a secret make-out session and she would probably lash out at Yugi with Yami protecting him by pinning Tea to a tree or the ground with his shadow powers. Could you please tell me how you got that dash over the "e" in Tea's name? I'm using the dubbed versions of everyone's name in my fanfic Yugi Enchanted and I would like to know how to do the dash thing.

Hooray! I'm really glad to see the first new chapter of 2014! I really enjoyed the fact that you made it to where they finally get to or almost get to Duelist Kingdom where Pegasus is. I also can't wait for the first duel. I'm fairly sure that Mai and Yugi will find out their cousins before long. And of course, they both will kick butt at. Dueling! *sighs* I love this story soo much...I wonder if I could make a fan art cover for this and for 'How Did It Come To This?'
| Mana's Madness chapter 29 . 1/12
Wow... I caught up?! I saw the description of this story and was immediately intrigued, so I checked out HDICTT and then read this one. Oh gods, I absolutely LOVE season 0 Puzzleshipping AUs, so I loved the season 0 arc, and I have a feeling the Duelist Kingdom arc will be just as awesome. Kudos to you for merging both anime and manga; that must take a lot of time and effort! And using Tomoya... Awesome idea! Takahashi seemed to hint that he'd have a bigger role as a character when it first started, but after Death-T... Was he actually ever in it again? I'm writing my own Season 0 AU and adding an obscure side character as a main... You know the girl who filled in for Honda in the episode with Miss Chonou in the anime? I've used her, but this fanfic has inspired me to add Tomoya, too. I'm actually going to put them as a couple in it... So thanks for the inspiration! XD
This story sort of reminds me of 'Dry Shouts Pierce My Broken Heart' by KagomeGirl92, only you haven't stopped updating. And that's why I love this more, despite my love of Dry Shouts. And they already have a developed backstory that all us readers are familiar with and Yuugi is only just finding out... It's been done so perfectly! I really hope you manage all the seasons eventually. I'll be watching you and this story series, dammit! And discontinue it and I will HUNT YOU DOWN! Haha... Seriously though, love it. Question - have you decided Rebecca's role yet? I'm curious to know if I should expect bashing or not.

This was so cute and funny! Seriously though, that t-shirt, haha! :D
| ultimatedragonballzfan chapter 13 . 1/10
Awww! They are so cute together!
| ultimatedragonballzfan chapter 12 . 1/10
I really like the changes from the manga! It's actually how I wished it would have played out. And haha, stupid Tea! Anyways, oh my freakin gosh, they kissed! Eeeep!
| Hime no Yuugi chapter 29 . 1/10
Hime: yugi didn't get tricked in this version... Nice to know he is not as naive but still so cute! *cuddles yugi stuffed toy*
Btw a little birdy told me that téa will be mean in duelist kingdom, how mean will she be and will you bash her? Don't be mad, I was just wondering...
| anonimous chapter 29 . 1/10
You didn't answer my other questions.
Would the answer be to much of a spoiler?
| ak chapter 29 . 1/9
I just wanna say that I am so glad to see that you havn't given up on this story I know you had a lot on your plate with other fics and i did get worriedwhen you didn't update since the summerso I am really glad to see you updating .I also read your bio on your puzzleshipping ideas and I just wanna say they all sound awesome and speaking as adevoted fan please write them because you obviously have a lot of creativity which deserves to be shared with the world one request if you write yout YGO Aladdin story could Dartz play Jafar and be obsessed with Yugi and try and take him from Yami. I'm sorry but I just loooooove stories where the villain is trying to steal the hero's girl (or in this case guy). Anyway please keep updating and please don't give up on your ideas because frankly reading the disney,dreamwork and barbie ideas they all sound wonderful.
