Here’s a new AU Buffy/Yu-Gi-Oh twoshot I cooked up while listening to Stranger by Hilary Duff and reading a oneshot called Mad Dance by LonelyHearts2008 on FanFiction.Net. Then, all of a sudden, I was instantly inspired when I read the part where Yugi is in the bathtub and Seto finds him there. So with that, I began imagining Dawn Summers in a bath, and then Kaiba suddenly comes in and finds her there...

As this is AU, instead of Ben sharing a body with Glory (similar to the Yu-Gi-Oh anime where Yami and Yugi share a body), they’re two separate people. (In other words, Glory has her own body – sort of like in all those Yu-Gi-Oh fics where the Yamis have their own bodies.) Kaiba, after surviving her trying to torture him, kills her so that she is unable to use her “brain-sucking powers” on him.

In this twoshot, Kaiba is eighteen and Dawn is fifteen. Kaiba has the gift of precognition, meaning he can see what’s to come in the future, and he can also cast spells, but good ones, of course.

We both lie silently still in the dead of the night
Although we both lie close together
We feel miles apart, inside
Was it somethin’ I said or somethin’ I did
Did my words not come out right
Though I tried not to hurt you
Though I tried
But I guess that’s why they say

Every rose has its thorn
Just like every night has its dawn
Just like every cowboy sings a sad, sad song
Every rose has its thorn
Yeah it does

I listen to our favorite song playin’ on the radio
Hear the DJ say love’s a game of
Easy come and easy go
But I wonder does he know
Has he ever felt like this
And I know that you’d be here right now
If I could have let you know somehow
I guess

Every rose has its thorn
Just like every night has its dawn
Just like every cowboy sings a sad, sad song
Every rose has its thorn

Though it’s been a while now
I still feel so much pain
Like the knife that cuts you
The wound heals, but the scar, that scar remains

I know I could have saved our love that night
If I’d know what to say
Instead of making love
We both made our separate ways

Now I hear you’ve found somebody new
And that I never meant that much to you
To hear that tears me up inside
And to see you cuts me like a knife
I guess

Every rose has its thorn
Just like every night has its dawn
Just like every cowboy sings a sad, sad song
Every rose has its thorn

--Poison, Every Rose Has Its Thorn

Fifteen-year-old Dawn Summers lay in the bathwater, her head leaning up against the right side of the bathtub. The water – which was up to her shoulders – ran in small graceful rivers down the parts of her bare skin that wasn’t submerged underwater – her shoulders, her neck and her collarbone, to be precise.

Her chocolate hair, despite being wet, looked so nice, silky and smooth to the touch.

Her blue eyes were closed, as she wanted to just relax and not worry so much about what was going on. And the bathwater certainly felt good – at least in her view.

As she lay there in the bathtub, the water covering her skin, she was blissful and relaxed. However, she was also unaware that a certain someone was about to come along into the bathroom...


Seto Kaiba, eighteen, couldn’t help but smirk to himself as he lay in the bed, looking up at the ceiling. Images of the Slayer’s sister roused themselves from their sleep as he called to them, and then showed themselves to him.

Dawn casually lying under the sheets in a canopy bed, the part of her skin that was exposed flushed and sweaty.... him secretly watching from around the corner, lust glistening like diamonds in his dark cobalt eyes as he eyed every inch of her skin, which was bare to the touch...

Dawn in the training room at the Magic Box, wearing a blue top, black pants and black ballet shoes, and secretly dancing by herself to songs she liked, such as “Every Rose Has Its Thorn” by Poison, thinking she was the only one in the room... but never knowing that she wasn’t...

As the images faded, Kaiba made up his mind. He then rose from the bed like a wild jungle cat and after making the bed, swiftly dressed himself and then casually pulled on his purple trenchcoat. He looked down at the bed and smiled an innocent, boyish smile at the thought of Dawn dancing alone in an empty nightclub, her hips rolling and her body simply getting into the dance so gracefully.

It made sense to him. After all, Dawn once said that she loved to dance, and that it was one of her favorite things to do.

He liked the sound of that, and he liked seeing her dance as well.

So with that, he then turned and headed out of the bedroom and down the hall to where he knew Dawn was. After all, he had the gift of precognition, or “seeing into the future” as he’d heard most people call it, but he also could see into the past as well. He had had a vision of this day that would come...

Dawn in the bathtub, letting the water run down her naked white skin... He himself coming into the bathroom and finding her there... Him thrusting into Dawn’s body over and over again, as the water begins its splashing in the tub, but thankfully never spilling over the sides...

Kaiba smirked to himself, wondering what Buffy would think if she not only found out he was both a seer and a sorcerer, but also interested in her little sister, the former Key.

He had to admit, Glorificus, that Goddess-Witch (as he preferred to call her, much to the shock of the Scooby Gang) sure tried her best when it came to torturing him – or at least trying to.

Glory growled in anger as she glared at Kaiba, who simply smirked at her, knowing that he had the upper hand, and then conjured up a few whips and tried to use them on him. But, much to her shock, he simply brushed them away with a wave of his hand, and they disappeared as though they were specks of dust in the wind.

Then, after chanting a few incantations so that her minions would be incapacitated (and he had to admit, his spells were the kind that would probably make Willow Rosenberg and Tara Maclay blush all over), he turned to a now-shocked Glory and purred,
“Well, Glory, it looks as though your minions are, shall we say, tied up at the moment. Do you know what that means?”

The look in his eyes was enough to make Glory unable to answer, as she was quivering all over with fear while looking over at her minions only to see, much to her horror, that they were lying on the floor while bound and gagged.

Then, Kaiba appeared from behind her and gripped her shoulders with a vice-like grip that made her wince and was almost hard enough to draw blood.

Then, like an Eastern diamondback rattlesnake (which he remembered Buffy telling him had made its appearance in one of her dreams), he hissed in her ear,
“Strike now if you have the courage to challenge me face-to-face.”

But Glory couldn’t. So, with that, and wanting to keep the promise that he and Spike had made to Buffy that consisted of protecting Dawn, he then twisted the bones in her neck and let her fall. Then, a pool of her blood came out of her mouth upon her making painful contact with the floor.

Then, after he snapped his fingers, the now-dead Glory and her minions simply stayed there, frozen, as Kaiba turned and left Glory’s lair. Only the pool of blood was all that remained.

Kaiba smirked as the memory came back to him. Killing the hell-god by simply snapping her neck sure did wonders. When he proudly showed the Scoobies exactly what he had done, he took profound pleasure in seeing their reactions – especially Dawn’s.

Giles blinked, Buffy was shocked, Willow was surprised, Tara looked puzzled, Xander blinked in puzzlement as well, and so did Anya. Dawn – well, Dawn’s reaction was quite something.

Kaiba then shook his head as he remembered how Dawn had reacted.

Dawn fell to her knees in shock, unable to believe that Glory, the hell-god that wanted that part of her called the Key, was now dead.

Luckily, Kaiba then stepped around the gang and then bent to her level. Gently, he gripped her shoulders as she turned to him, and he let her cry into his chest.

“It’s all right, Dawn,” he said. “You are safe now, my little dancer.”

Of course, the Scoobies exchanged knowing looks, knowing exactly what Kaiba had meant.
