    Summary

    "I was thinking," Bakura said, "Why don't I take the train downtown tomorrow? There's that nice cafe, by the water. And I could take the ring, and throw it off the side of the bridge, and you would sink to the bottom of the river and no one would ever hear from you again."

    It laughed at him. It always thought he was so funny, when he threatened it.

    Summary

    Mello bought the rings but Matt was the one who knelt, in the crust of the linoleum kitchen floor that they never cleaned.

    “Mel,” Matt said, and Mello said, “For fuck’s sake, get off the floor.”

    Summary

    It should be said that, in the history of all time and space, no good decision was ever made after a third shot of tequila unless the decision was a bottle of water and a ride home. However, this time, Atem was convinced that he was onto something. And unlike the last time with the feather boa and the stripper pole, his friends actually seemed like they agreed.

    Or, Atem gets drunk with his friends and decides that he has to ask Seto Kaiba out. Immediately.

    Summary

    Death is angry.

    Ares can sense it even from across the battlefield, the red, boiling fury he knows better than any other. It is the desire for violence, the drive to fight, the will to harm. A selfish anger. An anger he is so very familiar with, for it is the anger that coaxes kings into conflict, compels soldiers into battle, feeds strife until it is ripe for picking. It is the anger that fuels wars.

    But he has never, in all his existence, felt that anger radiating from Death Incarnate.

    Ares revels in this anger, in what it represents. But it ill suits Thanatos, he who grants peace to those felled by that very anger, and such as it is the first time Ares has felt this anger radiating from the God of Death, so is it the first time the God of War takes no pleasure from the sensation.

    Summary

    “War and peace are like the tides, a constant push and pull,” Ares says as he rises, placing his now clean sword back in its scabbard at his hip. “Without peace, war would become a dreadfully dull affair, I’m afraid. The mortals need time to recuperate from strife. As do I, for that matter. Not even we Gods are capable of forsaking rest entirely.”

    So that’s what this is about. The battle, the Keres, the souls – it’s not a gift at all.

    It’s a trap.

    Thanatos’ grip tightens on his scythe. “I have work to do.”

    “No,” Ares counters, calmly. “You do not.”
