Otogi was certain he fell outside the Egyptian circle, the one that Ura-Yugi and Kaiba were locked in, but his 18th birthday proved him wrong, that he was more intergrated into a lost history than he was comfortable with. And Otogi feels degraded and loathing after he discovers that he's nothing but a vessel, a container for the magic of a powerful magician.
It's not a happy day when he learns just who the magician was, 3000 years ago.
Time travel!fic, ancient Egypt with non-traditional incarnation selves (i.e., no slaves), shounen-ai, Otogi & Honda & High Priest centric, and much high-amusing Jounouchi mental agony (he's definitely put through his paces *eg*).
