Author has written 6 stories for Yu-Gi-Oh.



So I know I'm a slow updater. (I am well aware of it, in fact, and own up to my own faults.)

I write when I'm inspired. Sometimes other fandoms get in the way.

But--and this is important--I DO NOT ABANDON FICS.

So no matter how long it's been since updating, don't worry too much. It will be updated. It'll just take time. I don't know how much (hopefully not a year, like this last one, but that's my biggest shame to date), but it will happen.

I've actually got very detailed outlines for a few fics in the works, and they are being written. So expect new stories by the end of this summer.

Accepted Fic Requests:

Not accepting requests at this time.

Hello! I am TheHaremshipper. I write stories centered around multiple person relationships in the Yu-Gi-Oh! fandom, hence the name 'TheHaremshipper' as half these pairings have so many people they might as well be a harem. You see, these are my favorite pairings of all time--but there just aren't enough on the site! It's so hard to find half of them! Also, there are some pairing ideas I have that, when I checked the list of official Yu-Gi-Oh! pairings, didn't even exist. Therefore, every time I post a story that has no official pairing name, I will put up a poll so that together we as a fandom can name the pairing ourselves!

You likey?

I do. Also, there will be occasions where I will say, hold a contest or an event where you as fans can give me the unknown or rare multi-person pairings you favor, and I will write them for you! Whether it's a one-shot or a multi-chapter is for the future to decide.

...but I suppose I'm getting ahead of myself. After all, the fics I'm working on aren't exactly up here yet are they?

I'll post summaries of stories I'm writing on here, you can all decide which ones go up when. Also, I'll try to be pretty consistent about my posting.

Just so everyone knows, I'm aware of the Anzu bashing that goes on in the fandom. My fics will either feature her as a.) The main character; b.) A supporting friend character; or c.) nonexistent. That's right, she'll either lead, support, or not exist at all in the fics. I don't like bashing the poor girl. I mean, with all the yaoi fiction out there that pairs her with no name leftover characters or bashes her all to hell for liking a guy, I feel damn sorry for her. Don't get me wrong, I like to read a good bashing at her every once in a while--those friendship speeches are pretty damn annoying sometimes--but I myself as a writer just can't do it. You'll get what I mean when, if, you read my stories.

Vivian, however I am just fine bashing. I do not like her. Therefore, in my stories, she does not exist. At all. If she does, it'll be a passing thing about her jumping off a building or falling in a moat of crocodiles :)

Thanks for your time! Following shall be story ideas that you will occasionally be able to vote on in poles, the list of existing official multi-person pairings I'm willing to write, and updating statistics for stories.

Happy Fandom,


List of Official Yu-Gi-Oh! Pairings I Am Willing to Write:

Bakushipping (AkefiaxBakuraxRyou) (This is totally self-explanatory. Three white haired bishies? Yes. Just, yes.)

Bandageshipping (BakuraxRyouxShizuka) (It looks cute. Come on.)

Batteryshipping (BakuraxJouxRyou) (I've only read two stories with this--both one-shots. I want more.)

Candleshipping (BakuraxSetoxRyou) (...Just think about it.)

Carmenshipping (MarikxBakuraxSeto) ('d be hot. That's all I can say. One question-Who the hell's on the bottom?)

Castleshipping (SethxSetoxJou) (How can you not like this?)

Chimeshipping (AkefiaxMalikxMai) (You can't help but be curious as to how the fuck THIS comes about...)

Clearshipping (SetoxYugixMokuba) (Normally I'm not into SetoxMokuba anything, but...I'll just have to make them not related or something.)

Conspireshipping (MarikxBakuraxMalikxRyou) (YES! Just fucking YES! One of my all time faves, there should be more!)

Creamshipping (AkefiaxBakuraxJouxRyou) (Like Batteryshipping, only hotter.)

Dealshipping (BakuraxRyouxAmane) (...another one with sibling pairings, but I'd definitely change it up so they weren't related.)

Diamondshipping (MarikxBakuraxMai) (Like with Chimeshipping, I'm curious as to how the hell this happens.)

Doomshipping (MarikxBakuraxMokuba) ('s probably a bad thing for Mokie that I like this pairing. Poor, poor little Mokuba...)

Evilshipping (MarikxBakuraxRebecca) (...oh dear. I must be a sadist to keep wanting to pair those two up with innocents...)

Fakeshipping (MarikxJouxMalik) (Think of it like Batteryshipping. I'm curious.)

Faultshipping (SetoxMokubaxAnzu) (Lucky girl, sandwiched between two bishies...who so will not let be related if I write this. I can't write incest.)

Feathershipping (YamixJouxYugi) (Never read one, but I wouldn't mind writing seems so very...interesting...)

Flareshipping (SetoxYamixYugi) (I've only ever found one that I liked, that was really long, and I LOVED it!)

Fractureshipping (AkefiaxMarikxBakuraxMalikxRyou) (HELLS to the FUCKING YES! Brilliant, just, just brilliant!)

Gravityshipping (AkefiaxMalikxRyou) (Come on, you know you're interested in at least seeing it once.)

Hikarishipping (MalikxYugixRyou) (Quiet now, you KNOW it's cute.)

Kamishipping (SetoxYamixJou) (Just think about it for a second, kay? Oooh, the possibilities...)

Lynchshipping (AkefiaxMarikxMalik) (I can picture it now. Time-travel fic, here I come!)

Mainshipping (SetoxYamixJouxYugi) (Why pick between Puppyshipping and Puzzleshipping when you can have both?)

Mobiumshipping (AtemxYamixYugi) (Why write this? Well...why not? Narcissism at its finest.)

Mumbleshipping (SetoxOtogixRyou) (For some reason, I feel the urge to squee every time I picture it...)

Naiveshipping (YugixRyouxAnzu) (...makes you think a bit, doesn't it?)

Necroshipping (MarikxBakuraxRyou) (Oh dear, I seem to have put Ryou in a tight spot here, haven't I?)

Plundershipping (BakuraxYamixJou) (I'm very very curious. Very curious.)

Prizeshipping (SetoxYamixMokuba) (I really must stop with these. It's going to be hard writing non-incest fics with Mokie and Kaiba...)

Promiseshipping (YamixYugixMokuba) (One, two, three, AWWWWWW!!)

Rustshipping (AkefiaxMarikxRyou) (My mind is spinning with ideas...)

Shroudshipping (AkefiaxAtemxPriestess Isis) (My fanfic senses detect a fic set in Ancient Egypt...)

Spiritshipping (YamixYugixAnzu) (I've always liked this pairing, I just wish more people did.)

Tornshipping (BakuraxMalikxRyou) (I can just feel the angst that can be generated by this pairing...)

Trapshipping (BakuraxYamixYugixRyou) (I've only seen one of these. One. WE NEED MORE!)

Yamishipping (MarikxBakuraxYami) (Three hot-blooded males with a darker, possibly sinister side? Yum yum ;p )

Yuumeishipping (MarikxBakuraxYamixMalikxRyouxYugi) (The best thing to happen. Ever. My all time fave...almost.)

(The following were created with the help of Lily Angel of Chaos--Much thanks!)

Kashipping (AkefiaxAtemxBakuraxYamixRyouxYugi)

If you see any pairings on this list that DO have an official shipping and I just didn't notice, tell me and I'll look into it and add it to the official pairings list. If you have a shipping you like and have a totally awesome shipping title for it that isn't already taken by another ship, message and let me know! I'll add it to this list!

Original Story Ideas:

  • How Far We've Come:
  • Much like Speak Low, If You Speak Love. A collection of one-shots/drabbles of Yu-Gi-Oh poly pairings. Each drabble/one-shot will be written using a few lines from a randomly selected song on my playlist as a prompt. Like Speak Low, it will follow the list of poly-pairings listed above.
    As an added twist, a character in the pairing shall be randomly selected and genderbended!

    Pairing: Several--follows the list towards the top.

  • Pearl:
  • A spin-off of the Bakushipping ficlet in Speak Low, If You Speak Love. Ryou, a slave in his master's house, is kept largely as an ornament for display. Unfortunately, Ryou's master has been dabbling with the Thief King and his Prince, a most risky move. While making business with the thief royalty, he mistakenly allows them to meet Ryou. From there an unlikely relationship is formed.

    Established: Geminishipping (AkefiaxBakura)
    Eventual: Bakushipping (AkefiaxBakuraxRyou)
    Multi-chapter fic.

  • Yadunoshi:
  • Ryou has been in love with Bakura, Malik and Marik for quite some time now. However, he has been just 'Yadunoshi' to them for so long that he believes that's all he'll ever be. Tired of watching them together, and tired of pining for something he thinks he'll never have, Ryou leaves Domino, what he hopes is for good...just to come back years later on an autograph tour for his book. Will they all meet again? Will he ever be more to them than just 'Yadunoshi'?

    Established: MarikxBakuraxMalik
    Eventual: Conspireshipping (MarikxBakuraxMalikxRyou)
    Multi-chapter fic.

  • Trente--Je T'aime:
  • The story of an unlikely romance between Mokuba, Bakura and Marik. Told through a series of one shots to thirty songs. From meeting, to fighting, to falling. And everything inbetween.
    Mokuba's third person POV.

    Established: Psychoshipping (MarikxBakura)
    Eventual: Doomshipping (MarikxBakuraxMokuba)
    Multi-chapter fic.

As she escapes her depression, she finds herself feeling more confidant of herself than ever before...just in time for the people who made her sink so low to start noticing her now that she's already given up on them.
    Pro-Anzu fic.

    Established: Yuumeishipping (MarikxBakuraxYamixMalikxRyouxYugi)

    The Ballet Studio by Always a Bookworm reviews
    "Hi. I'm Anzu Mazaki. I'm a ballet dancer in dire need of a pianist to replace this terrible CD." "Hi. I'm Yuugi Motou. I'm a superhero pianist sent to save you from the CD." Sometimes love can be a lot more complex and painful than it should be. YYxAxY

    Of Games, Life and Love by Always a Bookworm reviews
    It would be so easy to say that it wasn’t his fault. So easy to turn away and argue that he hadn’t asked for it, that it was all their doing. But that would be a lie. And Ryou was so tired of lies. Yuumeishipping, Winner of YGO Contest Season Six!

    I'm Sorry, I Love You reviews
    Anzu, suffering from unrequited love for those who already have each other, slips into a depression. Eventually, she manages to escape it-just to fall in love with them all over again. It takes courage to know when to fight, and even more to know when to give in. Established Yuumeishipping, eventual Yuumeishipping with Anzu. Some mildly disturbing content. Slow burn.
