Warnings: This story will contain swearing, mature content, mature humour and violence.
Extra Author notes:
I'll call always the "hikari" Ryou and the spirit inside the ring Bakura. I won't use the name Yami Bakura in my writing all, so if I mention the name Bakura in my writing I mean "Yami Bakura" not Ryou.
I suck at writing duels. I can't play the Yugioh card game to save my own life. I'm going to summarize the duels unless it is very important. (So it's going to be more plot and less card games.)
The title of this story is named after a song by Simple Plan. I thought it really suited Marik in this story.
Also the author's notes are at the bottom because they tend to be very long. The bold numbers represent an author note, so just scroll to bottom if you see one or are confused about something. My final author's notes will be at the very bottom.
ATTENTION DUELISTS! My hair has to say that the author does not own Yu-Gi-Oh even though she still wishes that she did. Kazuki Takahashi is the owner and creator of Yugioh.
I never asked to be given this fate. To be trapped underground; and serve a pharaoh who was dead long before I was born.
My childhood was what you would call messed up. My life began sixteen years ago when I was born in an underground tomb in Kemet. My family lived in a tomb waiting for someone named "The Nameless Pharaoh". Shortly after I was born, my mother passed away. My father forced me to take on the destiny of being a tomb keeper. In my father's eyes, I was the only person for the job since my sister had a destiny of her own being the holder of the Millennium Necklace and Odion wasn't even human in his eyes.
When I was little, I was always told I was a boy, even though I know that's not true now. My father wanted me to be a boy since only a man could take on the role as tomb keeper. He gave me a man's name and even forced me to wrap cloth around my breasts so I would be flat as my brother.
For awhile everything was almost okay. And then the day finally came on my tenth birthday when I was supposed to get my back craved into. What a wonderful birthday present; don't you think?
Two men dragged me away into a room, not even caring at all about the tears which were streaming down my face. I screamed out my brother's name, but he didn't listen to me. My sister was in her room praying to an Egyptian deity. I was alone to suffer my fate.
They lead me to a dark, cold room. I was strapped down to a stone slab and rope was tied around my limbs to prevent me from escaping. Something was stuffed my mouth so that I couldn't speak or scream. Tears fell down my face. The back of my shirt was ripped off.
My father started carving the symbols into my back with a hot knife. I would have screamed as the designs spread across my back, but the gag blocked all sound. Instead, I bit down as hard as I could and let the agony wash over me. I wanted it to stop. I wanted him to go away. I wanted my sister and brother to come and save me. But they never came.
I suffered those next few days. It hurt so much, from not just the pain of my back but from the thought that I had been betrayed by everyone I knew. My brother managed to calm me down.
When I was about twelve-years-old, I begged my sister to take me up to the surface. My sister gave in and took me up there. For the first time in a long time I was happy. I didn't say much since I wanted to take everything in. I had thought it was prefect until Ishizu and I got back to the tomb.
When I got back to the tomb, Odion was bent over with gashes on his back while my father held a whip in his hand. Before I knew it, everything went black.
When I woke up, my father was lying on the ground in a pool of blood. I stared in horror. I didn't like him that much, but that didn't mean that he deserved to die. A spirit of man appeared before me and told me it was "the Pharaoh's will." The pharaoh controlled me somehow and made me do that deed.
Shortly after, I left the underground tomb and formed the Rare Hunters with my brother. I'm now leading them to get back the pharaoh.
The Pharaoh's the reason I had to spend my life underground without being able to see the sun or feel its warmth on my skin. He's the reason that I'd had my back carved open in some damn ritualistic ceremony. He's the reason my father is dead. And now, the Pharaoh is going to pay for what he did to me and my family.
Aqua girl 007: Anyways, that's the end of the chapter. I hope you enjoyed it.
(The door of the room flies open and Marik charges into the room, glaring daggers at her.)
Marik: WHY THE F*** DID YOU CHANGE ME INTO A GIRL IN THIS!
Aqua girl 007: Well, I wanted to try something different since I never wrote a genderbender story before.
Marik: SO YOU CHANGED ME INTO A DAMN GIRL!
Yami Bakura: Now you really pissed him off.
Aqua girl 007: Thank you captain obvious. (Turns to Marik. And plays around with a small rolled up piece of paper in her hand.) I-I'm sorry, I -
Marik: (He walks up to her and passes the rod on her forehead. She tenses up.) If you pull something like this again, I'm going to show you what it's like changing into the opposite gender. (He drops the arm to his side and marches out of the room.)
Aqua girl 007: Thanks for reading this and please review.
