A Pairing Challenge by
Puzzleshipping is the shipping between Yami Yugi and Yugi Muto from anime Yu-Gi-Oh
Well...it is not nesessary to say that this is one of the most famous pairings in the anime series and as someone in DA had commented to a poster he made "this is the pairing that even the haters love" and it can be right. Even straightshippers have actually thought or imagined Puzzleshipping as one of the almost certain canon pairigs. The two of them are two sides of the same coin and this says it all. Yami is strong, determined, brave and still he has a gentle heart and he cares about his friends. Yugi is shy, sweet, caring, with an extremely soft heart but also with hidden bravery that waited to come out. After he solved the Puzzle (after eight years of patient and hard work) he set Yami's spirit free. In the begining he showed no compassion... Even though he had a strong sense of justice, he still was not merciful. Close to Yugi he learnt what it means be merciful, gentle and kind... He learnt to take the pain of his friends upon his shoulders. Yugi on the other hand, who was feeling shy to speak even to his aquintances, he learnt from Yami to stand his ground and be brave...to face reality and face his fears. The two of them share everything. And when we say everything we mean it... They share body...they share thoughts...they share feelings...they share experiences...they share everything... They can simply understand each other by simply looking in each other's eyes. Words are not needed with them. Also the two of them mean the world to each other. Yugi was desperate to re-solve the Puzzle in season 2 when posesed Bandid Keith smushed the Puzzle into golden pieces... Yugi prefered to be burnt alive rather than to leave his Puzzle and his "Other Self" behind and Yami on the other hand would be even capable of killing Pegasus for the Shadow Duel that made Yugi's spirit almost shatter and later on in Doma arc he sank into despair and sadness and depression when he lost Yugi's soul to Orichalcos... He was even unable to activate Mirror Force to confront him some episodes later...
Yugi in Season 2 told him that he would give him his own memories if that meant that he would never leave him and Yami answered that he wanted to stay with him always even if he never got his memory back... Of course their bond is the strongest possible since even if they were seperated they could feel each other and also in the Ceremonial Duel, Yugi prefered to break his own heart by losing Yami forever rather than Yami remain bond in the Puzzle for another tormenting 3000 years... And of course each one of them took a part of the other with him when seperated forever... All in all this pairing is worth its attention!
Song: We are One (The Lion King 2)
The title says it all! And the lyrics seem to be made for them according to my humble opinion... Yugi is uncertain of what he should do and weather he can still be hinself and Yami teaches him that his pride deep inside and the feelings and the experiences he's been through will always guide him and also because like he said in the anime too and as the song says "even those who are gone are with us as we go on" Because Yami will always be by Yugi's side no matter what...and he also taught him that Yugi's "journey has only begun"...and mostly of all...because the two of them are one...
We will stand by your side Filled with hope and filled with pride We are more than we are We are one If there's so much I must be Can I still just be me The way I am? Can I trust in my own heart Or am I just one part Of some big plan? I can't wait for more challenges!!
