Descendents of Seto
Author's Note: Recently, I watched the Prince of Egypt and found it very... interesting how similar the Pharaoh's (the first one) name, Seti, was to Seto. So I decided to make a crossover fic that keeps the Yu-Gi-Oh Egypt in good standing but explains how things got out of hand for Moses's time. Seto is long dead and gone and this is from his POV. By the way, this is the first Prince of Egypt/Yu-Gi-Oh crossover (but it's not really much of a crossover) though I'm not surprised because even though they both deal with Egypt, the Egyptians in Prince of Egypt are not good.
Warning: This is not an excessively religious piece in my opinion but if you have strong feelings about religion, then tread cautiously if you want to read this and don't tell me what's right and wrong because I won't hear of it.
Disclaimer: I don't own Yu-Gi-Oh or Prince of Egypt.
I have been many things in my life.
I was a peasant...
I was a priest...
I was a pharaoh...
And now I'm a god...
I am a god and yet I do not have the power to stop what is happening to my homeland of Egypt.
My cousin gave me the Puzzle, a symbol of the Pharaohs.
He told me to fulfill his father's dream and bring peace to Egypt.
I did that.
I rebuilt Egypt and I taught my own son the same.
He was a wonderful child and my only regret was that he wasn't Kisara's.
From here in the Afterlife, I watched him.
He followed in my footsteps and my grandson grew the same way as him.
I felt confident that Egypt would prosper for eternity now.
But it didn't.
Over the passage of time, the bloodline became corrupted.
I can't remember when and I don't care to remember anyways...
But my descendents started enslaving Hebrews.
They are people who only believe in one god rather than several but their faith is strong.
It is not for me to question how this new belief began but they are not warriors.
They did not threaten Egypt and try to attack it.
So why oh why did my descendents start to enslave them?
It wasn't a lot at first.
But as time carried on, it came to be that thousands of Hebrews had become slaves.
Families of them, including small children.
This god of theirs...
I've met Him before.
He is interesting to say the least.
And His people are just as interesting.
They have faith in Him even in their last moments of life.
My name is truly a curse.
A derivation of Set, the God of Chaos.
And Seti, the Pharaoh of the present, is named after me.
He sends his soldiers to slaughter the male Hebrew infants at this very moment.
The land of Egypt that I once knew has withered under the scourge of corruption that taints the land.
And it is my fault that it happened.
My descendents, My blood, My curse.
There is nothing that I can do to stop what Seti plans to do now...
But I can prevent this from continuing anymore.
I can only pick one.
And only he among all the infants around will be saved.
I keep the guards away from him and his family long enough for them to escape to the river.
Put in a basket, he floats on the surface and I keep Apep from drowning the hope for the Hebrews and all of Egypt.
I lead the basket to the palace.
It's changed a lot since my lifetime.
He drifts in where the queen is with her son, Ramses.
He will be safest as a member of the Pharaoh's family.
I have given him a safe home.
It is the least I can do.
I cannot give him extra protection anymore.
He is a Hebrew...
And he must follow his own destiny.
I gave their god exactly the opportunity that He needs to deliver His people to the promised land.
Now hopefully this horrible reality can end for the both of us...
When the Hebrews are delivered...
And Egypt is cleansed.
Sorry that this happened cousin.
I apologize if any of you were offended by the religious stuff but Prince of Egypt is a religious story and I wanted to do something with Yu-Gi-Oh and Prince of Egypt together. Somebody tell me how I did because I hate offending people though unfortunately, religion is one of the most touchy subjects to talk about. I am not an atheist but I don't have a set religion either.
