There would be cardgames becausecard games were actually hella importantin the 18th century. Kaiba would be a member of the House of Lords and Yami wouldn’t speak any English; they communicate to each other via crude drawings of riding horses and stick figures fencing. (ardentblue’s idea, just so you know.)
Malik and the rest of the Ishtars are visiting from Egypt and Malik writes letters to the local insane asylum for “charity” —- eventually he becomes penpals with Yami Bakura and “adopts” the madman into their home against the wishes of his brother and sister. Armed with diplomatic immunity he and Bakura troll society dinners for many seasons.
Also everyone wears embroidered silk suits and carries swords.
Bakura and Malik sometimes decide to make Ishizu’s visitors uncomfortable by dressing Bakura up in the straight-jacket he came in. Or to shoo off Malik’s social callers or meetings he otherwise doesn’t want to have.
“It’s for charity. We think he’s getting better, but it’s day by day.”
…I am fairly certain this is exactly what a mental fandom orgasm feels like
The image of Bakura fake-frothing and acting (more) insane and Malik using him like a pet is just gold. All the Isis-facepalms.
someone write this
I want this to exist……….maybe some day.
