Strange but very appropriate for Marik and Bakura. I loved the way you described things like "Bakura kicked it to the ground, the lid scattering wildly as though trying to regain its balance so it might stand up and give them a lecture on the mistreatment of burial caskets." Very good story!

This was lovely. Well, maybe lovely isn't the best word to use - the subject matter is disturbing, but it's well-written, so the pretty words kind of soften the blow, in a way.
I must compliment your ability to write sex scenes. Most writers (even great ones) are incredibly bad at writing sex, so it's often just embarrassing or uncomfortable to read. You manage to do it well. Kudos.
Thanks for writing all these awesome fics. I look forward to seeing where you go with this.

Your fanfiction left a very strong impression on me. There are only few things that moved me so much that they stood longer in my mind than for five minutes - but this one is definitely one of those.
At first I thought that it was going to be humorous - well, I was proven wrong quickly.
You've got a very good storyline there - what the two of them did suits them well (not only defiling the pharao's remains, but also the whole tomb).
Someone wrote that he'd hope for the story to become more "comforty", but I think Bakura and Marik having found each other and being able to share their hate, their desires and their thoughts is already a big comfort - it is more than most people usually get. Those two don't need to hold each other in their pain but to live out together their will and their disgust for the world which they don't seem to belong into.
I really liked how supportive Marik behaved towards Bakura, suggesting the thief to stab and "kill" the pharao's body. How he helped him to express the hate and afterwards destroyed the remains of the pharao in cold passion. In my view you have to be soulmates at some point to know what'd please the other's feelings most and feeling them for yourself, too. And in your story they are.
They may have teamed up together by chance - but I've learned that chance brings together what belongs together quite often.
Both of them somehow don't belong in the world around them, but together they were able to create something of their own, knowing that they wouldn't be pushed away by the other one and that no one else is able to enter it.
I like of that aspect as much as I like the fact that it's not only their fondness for rough sex they share, but also great trust - otherwise their relationship wouldn't work.
It also affects me that, although saying that killing the pharao brought him more pleasure than Marik ever could have, Bakura is proven wrong at the end of the story when Marik lights up an even stronger fire in the thief's soul and brings him more statisfaction than his hatred towards the pharao. (That's already kind of a happy end for me.)
I must admit that I first thought their touching each other to be a little bit rough, but then I understood how you were going to portrait the characters and found it very well choosen.
I agree that violence is the only way to express their love towards each other and that a lovey-dovey relationship would be as much as inappropriate as ever.
It sometimes makes me sad to notice that a lot of people don't get the many ways love can look like. But at the end of the day it's rather their problem than it is mine.
I like your writing style and the yaoi-parts as well. A lot of people thought that it's "fascinating" for such a story to be written by you, LittleKuriboh, who makes plenty of great comedy stuff.
But I must admit that I wasn't fascinated by this fact at all, since one could expect a great, passionate story which stays in one's mind for one hell of a time from a person like you.
Only a person with deep and genuine feelings can write something like that - considering this I wasn't surprised at all.
I just wasn't used to a man writing yaoi - but you dug it, so it's fine.
Like I said - I like it very, very much.
Best regards and keep up the good work!

Holy crap! Little Kuriboh you have done it again. I love all of your thiefshipping fanfics! Please write more! This was amazing 333

...That was...incredibly disturbing.
Sorry. I'd like to say I loved it, but mostly I just found it unnerving. T.T
Just throwing that out there. Still, I'll try to give you some feedback. I don't think the writing was bad, or even the character portrayal. In fact, I've read a few of your other fics, a while back. I think you've improved; the characters feel like they have much more depth. When I read your previous stories, I remember thinking that they were funny or cute, but I couldn't get your 'abridged' versions out of my head. I love your abridged series, but for fanfiction, I think this style definitely suits you.
The story tends to 'tell' rather than 'show' at times, but it definitely flows well. Err, the porn seemed to take up a great deal of the story, which I must admit I'm not a huge fan of. It IS incorporated into the story; however, and it's meant to add to the fic as a whole, so I recognize that. It certainly showed Marik and Bakura's anger to an extent I've rarely seen before.
...AHHHHH! Defiling the Pharaoh's grave and...getting off to it...
I think a 'meep' would appropriately describe what I was feeling when I read that. Eheh? :)
Anyway. I did think a few of the lines were rather...profound, I suppose. Although that makes me sound like a dweeb. I liked this one in particular:
"He sought to silence them once and for all by delivering swift vengeance unto the dead king who still walked the earth - to kill that which was already dead. This had been his only cause for so long, his reason for living, for killing, for dying. It had taken root within him".
THAT paragraph managed to bring out my inner fangirl. Whooo! Bakura! XD
As for the thiefshipping, have you ever considered writing HOW Bakura and Marik start their relationship? Err, this is just me since I like your writing, but I'd find it interesting to see your take on it. Your stories tend to have them already in some form of relationship, but not leading up to it...Seems a bit abrupt. Then again, I haven't read all your stories, so maybe you already have? Or maybe I just don't remember that well...
Well, regardless, this was an intriguing read. Scarring, potentially traumatizing, and makes me doubt my sanity for reading it (sorry)...but intriguing.
So thanks for posting! It's nice to see you haven't completely lost interest in the Yugioh fandom. I'd love to see anything you write in the future (or whatever YGOTAS episodes you post), but that aside, thanks for sharing what you already have. :)
And uhhhh...Sorry for the long review. I'm in a bit of a rambling mood today. IGNOREE MEEEE!
Yeah, I just shamelessly sent one of your Marik quotes right back at ya. Bet you never get any of that.
p.s. I wouldn't shake on that bet, btw.

Your writing is gorgeous, and I'm always impressed by your skill when I read what you've written. The way you display the characters is beautiful, and their banter is clever and spot-on. There were several lines that I thought were pure poetry, and the images you bring up are fantastic.
I have to say, though, I think my favorite two lines (and I love them enough that I'd want them on a pin or some other object I could keep with me, though that would be hard to explain) for their meaning, power, and simplicity are:
"The king is dead.
The king is so very fucking dead."
I love it when you post new stuff, and I hope to see more from you in the future! As someone who takes writing very seriously (and YGO! just slightly less so), I really am enamored with what you create.

Damn. Just...damn. This was glorious. All of my applause to you :)
| Anon chapter 1 . 2/10/2013
Glad you're writing again! I'm always surprised by the intensity of your stories. And I don't mean the sex scenes necessarily. You take the characters seriously and I'm always left with a feeling of deepness...I can't articulate it. But excellent work, and I'm glad you haven't dropped Thiefshipping, even though Marik and Bakura aren't featured in the main plotline of YGOTAS. Much respect, LK! :)
