I have this headcanon that Ishizu is suicidal- She obviously suffered child neglect somewhat and that can seriously fuck somebody up. She sees herself as disposable and is willing to throw her life away for the only person who really showed affection for her.
I don’t think I’d go so far as to call her suicidal, but I think she probably does have guilt issues for not knowing how to help Malik with his pain and she wants very much to do whatever it takes to help him now. I agree that she probably does have issues coming from neglect too though. Her dad definitely didn’t care about her at all and she might not have been old enough to remember much about her mother when she died. :\
Kaiba’s been working too hard throughout his life to let anything control him, not the past or the future. And yet he still is kind of controlled by the past, no matter how much he wants to deny it. What happened to him as a child when Gozaburo was still alive shaped the kind of person he became in the present and he hasn’t been able to entirely let go of that anger and hate he had towards his adopted father and be able to move past that yet. Even the distant past still has a kind of hold on him, and while it doesn’t control his actions per say it still means that he ends up becoming involved in Ancient Egyptian things whether he wants to be or not.
I like how Kaiba refuses to believe in the magic of the Millennium Items at all but he has no problem with being able to feel that Obelisk is the next card he’s going to draw. I guess he puts it down to being part of being a Duelist that you can feel things like this but that’s still a kind of magic in its own right as well, even if it’s a more subtle type and not as obvious.
Wow, he is really having way too much fun taunting her in this duel. And Ishizu just takes it all calmly because she knows she’s the one who actually has the upper hand. These two, I swear… ^^;
Awww, even when he can’t be there in person Mokuba is still always cheering for his brother. I like his expression in that last one.
Jou’s got a good point there. He’s apparently decided he’s going to root for Kaiba after all and is sympathizing with him now.
Heh, Kaiba’s confidence is certainly hard to shake when he gets going.
Omg, that comeback though… XD
I really like how Ishizu apologizes to him silently. She knows that she isn’t playing fair and that it’s cheating to use her item, but I guess sometimes it can be necessary to bend the rules somewhat. She’s talking about risking her own life again too. Oh Ishizu… ;-;
