This is an independent snowglobe/AU Yami Bakura roleplay account.

I am simply a fallen star, stripped of my powers and privileges, banished to your realm to spend the rest of my days amongst you humans.

Warning: This Bakura is a pathological liar, if you ask a question you may not be getting a true answer. For more info check the extra pages.

He looked over the other with a lifted brow and laughed lowly, his shoulders shaking lightly. He mirrored the folding of the arms, his quite tan and muscular looking though. “Heh… why would you think I was heading for being enjoyable? I’m quite the opposite I fear…” His lips twitched and he passed the other and looked at his back, rounding him slowly and letting his eyes slide over the other in a demeaning manner.

"It’s hard not to know your name." He smirked but didn’t elaborate his statement further, almost performing a semi-bow. "Please… by all means of politeness then~ You may call me Mariku."
He stuck his tongue out after that. “Seems you are very used to be pleased and amused by others though. Sounds to me like you’re used to get your will.” He huffed out some air.

"My words hold true no matter your intent." The star turned as the man walked, the motion smooth and natural to cover how much the star disliked people at his back. Something humans, without wings to hinder their vision, did not seem to take much offense at. "You appear no different to any regular human, if you wish to make an impression you must put a modicum of effort in."

"There are many who have appropriated my face for their own." He agreed noncommittally, through his self-confident sneer the only reaction he had to Mariku’s presence seemed to be of apathy. The slow and regal lift of his head seemed disconnected. "Should I not be? I am a being of singular worth, am I not?"

Mariku lifted a brow and looked over his shoulder at the other, his violet eyes staying on the other ones face as he hummed lowly. He hadn’t really recognized the other ones discomfort about the inability of seeing things behind his back.  The blond man snorted a little, sighing. “It’s of no importance what you think about me though.” He smirked at the other. “It doesn’t touch me at all. If that even was your intention. What about you though? If you think I am so very human… please elaborate what makes you outstanding.” His lips twitched a little as he watched the other.

Strangely this talk didn’t bother him at all. Albeit he hadn’t warmed up to the other at all, mainly because of the reason that the other ones face was so bare of emotions. It actually saddened him… he loved to see reactions on others. It was really annoying that the other robbed this fun from him.
"A being of singular worth… maybe is a little much. You’re a being of individual worth… if that worth is really so outstanding… I don’t know. I haven’t yet seen enough of you to decide that.”

He would scoff, but Bakura could not resist an opportunity to show off when it was demanded of him so obviously. He lent forward in a bowing motion, spreading both his inhumanly thin arms and his enormous white wings, feathers rustling gently with the motion. “What do you think? I make no claim that you are indeed human, in this place it would be folly to simply assume. However as there are no visible differences I am afraid you simple fade into the background, where as one so visually unique as I shall always stand out.” He straightened up with a grin, somewhat smug but largely simply amused by this exchange and finally showing it on his face.

"I believe you have seen more than enough. There are some status benefits to being the only star to walk to the earth."

starbrightbakura asked: It was late afternoon, too cold really for him to be so high in the air, but he was still indulging in his returned vision and the threat of bad weather meant nothing to him. Apparently it meant more to the familiar figure below he had been trailing, who appeared to be travelling somewhere. It had been a few blocks when he decided to play his usual game, keeping his shadow over them and seeing how long it took them to look up. The promise of a phone call did not even enter his mind.

Bakura sighed, wondering why he couldn’t just go home, why he was so restless that he had to take a walk.

The frigid air rose up around him as he pulled his coat closer.

It took him a while to sense that there was someone over him. Spinning in a flash, he glared.

"Star…"

“Indeed. I should not have emerged if circumstances were otherwise.” He dipped his head and offered the open door to the other with a wing, his feathers rustling as they brushed the door frame.

“The animals are safely locked away, and I do apologise for the need to leave you to ascend on your own. After you. We do have several teas, I believe, and quite a number of excellent snacks if you so wish. I shall prepare something presently. Nothing so grand as the meal you yourself provided I am afraid.”

Bakura snorted as he entered the flat.

"That meal wasn’t grand at all. You just have lived a sheltered life when it comes to food," Bakura said.

He walked in and looked around for a moment before he seated himself on the couch.

"Black tea would be nice if you have it."

"All meals are grand when one has a human tongue with which to enjoy them, beyond any of life’s other pleasures. Even food from my home realm does not compare when one has such strong senses at their disposal."

He waves a hand, dismissing the others opinion, and makes his way to the open kitchen. With the kettle boiling and two cups gathered he pauses. “What, exactly, differentiates black tea from its more generic counterparts?”

starbrightbakura asked: *after a moment of shuffling his wings to his back he changes his mind and curls them like a shield around himself and you to trap warmth* A Panda. No I did not believe so. You may speak in several stories however so do the other usually unintelligent beasts of this earth. What sort of Panda are you then? Do you have a name? *shakes his head* Of course I am cold, I doubt any creature out currently is not. Hence my drink.

pandateddyclaws:

(Eyes widen at the appearance of his wings, having been too distracted by the mug in her paws to notice them earlier. Head swivels left and right as they envelop the pair, ears twitching in excitement with a face of awe. He had wings, actual full body white fluffy feathery wings…and she was the one out of a children’s story book? Staring up at the arch of his folded wings she gulped, mouth suddenly dry despite the water she had sipped moments prior.) 

"Are….are you an angel?" (Something about Bakura being and angel just seemed off but she wasn’t sure what else to call him. An angel of death maybe. Now that really helped calm her nerves about him.) “I,I’m a black and white panda, red pandas look very different though and I’ve never heard of or seen a blue or green panda before…well unless you covered them in paint but that wouldn’t be very good for their fur.” (shakes head to stop herself  from rambling on.) “My name is Panda. Um, you’re a Bakura but are you called something different?”

(Looks back up at him again, scooting closer and holding the mug up for him to take back if he wished. Gaze trails back to his wings, curiosity getting the better of her.)”…..May I..touch your wings?”

“Slow down Panda, you have plenty of time in which to speak. Your tongue shall not be lost before our meeting is up.” He shook his head, laughter in his voice. “I am not offended by your suggestions, nor by the topic of your questions. I was taken by surprise, my query was constructed from nothing else. You were in several of your justifications correct, stars do not lie upon any surface to sleep, the damage to our feathers would be simply unmanageable. Clouds, however, would not offer any star a haven. In the form you see them as they are naught but a puddle in the sky, not a soft and restful surface but a cold and wet mist. Or perhaps a vengeful and wet mist. Heh.”

“Was I not clear enough in emphasising that I have no wish to be the cause of your death on this day? I would appreciate it if you were to be able to bring yourself to trust me to that extent.”

(Catching her breath she swallowed softly and listened, interested in his view on clouds and a little bit happy she had been correct about his wings.) “I see…Queen has large wings too so she had to sleep on her front or in her vine nest. Her wings weren’t made of feathers though, they were more like a really paper thin crystal she could flutter in order to hover. “(Smiles fondly.) “She could go really fast if she wanted to though. If I did well in a test or lesson though she’d bring me for a ride…it was fun..”

(Blinks, raising her paws defensively and staring at his shoulder.) ”I don’t mean my fear of you as an insult and I do believe you when you say you won’t hurt me, it’s just a personal problem.” (Ears slump, looking off to the side.) “I’m sorry…even to the Bakura who are nice to me I have to be careful around.” (grimaces) “And I’ve learned the hard way not to think of them as anything more than what I know them as…it hurts less that way.”

(It did feel unfair to see this new person in the same light as the other Bakurae she had met. For one he had no item or plans against the Pharaoh so he probably didn’t have any shadow magic either. For another he had approached her first with only tidings of kindness and good will. Really she had no reason to fear him at all….except… Peeks up to look at his face, shivering and averting her gaze quickly.)

"I’m sorry…"

"Oh? How interesting. Wings such as a large insect would have, correct? I should expect nothing less than speed and maneuverability from one modeled after those such creatures. And if you are as light as I suspect your weight should have made little difference. Why I myself would likely be able to carry you so."

To ease her worry he stroked one hand over her head, gently touching the dark ears. “I accept your apology, Panda. I can quite understand an unpleasant interaction with one whom I remind you of would make you cautious. I shall endeavour to show you I have no such intentions. I quite disdain those with my face who have inspired this fear amongst the peoples of this realm.”

destiny-be-damned asked: Atem moved in front of Bakura with a small nod of his head. He grinned and cupped his cheeks with his hands, pressing a soft kiss to his lips. He pulled back after a few seconds with a smile. "Ah... magic. My apologies if I startled you Bakura." He said softly.

Bakura made no move to stop Atem, he made didn’t react at all throughout the kiss. Simply standing and watching the man kiss him with an inscrutable expression. Once his lips were freed he swiped over them with his fingers, eyes smouldering with amusement.

"I am not startled Atem, you are not so silent nor insignificant that you should be missed by my senses. However, I would prefer you inquire first to receive permission should it ever happen again."

"… Hmm, I am actually partially tempted to accede. On the odd chance that it truly is a crime in your world to refuse you baked goods, are you quite certain you have a prison in which a star could be humanely held?"

"Not completely confident, but are YOU Completely confident that I don’t?"

"… Well played Officer." He hands over the cookie as though it were an extremely exclusive and desirable award.

He took the cookie, looking triumphant and bit into it, “Thanks.”

"One must wonder if your superiors are aware of your habit of abusing your power to gain edible treats." Smiiiirk.

"Considering the corruption of my ‘colleagues’ I doubt my superiors will mind this one little exploit," he took another bite of the cookie with a raised eyebrow. 

"Ah. Troubles in the world of law enforcement? Terrible to think such cookie commandeering has become commonplace among your ranks." The star shakes his head and tuts. "What is the realm of humans coming to?"
