DEEP. Oh dang, that's some con set up there. Great story! I like how Bakura's plan develops over time. Poor Ryou though. Meh. Anyhow, that was fun to read. :)

My face was doing this the whole time, particularly by the end:
*faith in quality Tendershipping fics restored* GREATNESS. *cuddles Spooner into oblivion*
Spitting the dummy... is that an expression? *googles*
"Australian Term: To indulge in a sudden display of anger or frustration; to lose one’s temper. The phrase is usually used of an adult, and the implication is that the outburst is childish, like a baby spitting out its dummy in a tantrum and refusing to be pacified."
OhhhHHHhhh. That makes perfect sense. You Australian chick you. xD
My realization aside, however, I really liked this fic. Fits in rather nicely with the manga canon, I'd say, with a nice spin on it; one that I haven't quite seen done the same way before. Kudos.
I should probably give a bit of concrit, shouldn't I..?
On the technical side, I would recommend a few less em dashes and semi colons, there seemed to be an especially large amount of both.
On the non-technical... hrrrrm... perhaps Ryou was the tiniest bit immature for his age in the middle there? But that could be attributed to the ruined childhood factor, so that's a little nitpick at best. x3
I have to say, I was worried a little when I saw "aimed to be flipped into something cute and bigbro/littlebro – style by the end" in the description, 'cause as you have probably realized I am wary of all things happy. So I was pleasantly surprised by the rather tragic aspect of the fic. V w V
OH and the twisting of the word 'brother', particularly when he was manipulating him... that was awesome. :')
"People have voices, people are friends, so this thing is sort of a person in a container - a friend, right?"
"He hardly looks trustworthy, by any means; but he appears to be a fun, playful type; especially when he's practicing his smile in the windows of shops he passes on the street, careful not to grin too wide so as to accidentally show his fangs."
*squirms with happiness* Good job! :3

Wow, dark end there. Loved it. Interesting idea of having Ryou trust him for a short time and even think they were brothers, it seems like something Bakura would do. Awesome work!

I'd just like to express once more how flawless this is x3 Gah, Spooner, I'd suggest that you try to take more of these popular yet unlikely ships, then I remember your Shipping Lampooned fic haha
