Hey there. :) Here’s a new Buffy/Yu-Gi-Oh crossover oneshot I cooked up one day thanks to the episode The Zeppo from Season 3 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Never Understand

His brow furrowed in puzzlement, Jack O’Toole sat in the outside quad of Sunnydale High School, watching one particular student that was standing in a casual pose up against the wall with one foot propped up against said wall. Like James Dean, Jack thought as the image of James Dean propped up in that fashion connected to the picture of Yami in that manner soon popped up in his mind.

The triumvirate of red, yellow and black hair in lightning bolt shapes. The crimson eyes. The serious gaze that he would often give someone quite often. Of course, sometimes the person the look would usually be directed at, as Jack found out more than once, was usually Principal Snyder, who was disliked by every student in the school except the Swim Team.

Another thing that Jack could never understand about the student was his name: Yami Moto. Wasn’t the name “Yami” supposed to mean “dark” or “darkness” in Japanese? Jack had studied the Japanese language, after all, and he had learned a few neat phrases in that neat language as well.

Jack shook his head. He felt he could never understand the enigma that the student, Yami, had become in quite some time. To him, Yami was this puzzle or big mystery that could never be solved.

Plus, there was another thing about Yami that Jack had seen more than once. He was quite philosophical, and often could be found in the library sitting at a table with an open book in front of him, and a group of books at his elbow. Jack knew that Yami was a great student. His grades proved that, as they were usually As and Bs.

Jack blinked and then sighed as he looked down at the notes he had made on Yami in his notebook. All that time spent making all these observations, and still he was no closer to learning more about the student of mystery that Yami seemed to be. And Yami wasn’t just a mystery to Jack, either. He was also seen as just that to most of the students at Sunnydale High as well. They were quite, well, inspired by him, to say the most.

But Yami himself they could never, and would most likely never understand.

At all.

Nice feedback is very much appreciated, of course. :)
