You can read it here [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5450429/1/Between_my_Brother_and_Me]]remake known as ''Between My Brother And Me: De Novo'', which adds more backstory and duels.




[[folder: Tropes found in the original story]]



* ISeeDeadPeople: May, Max and Mokuba are all able to see Atem and other Duel Monster Spirits, but May is the one who was the first to have this ability.



* MiseryBuildsCharacter: Played for drama. Sure the misery that affects the chosen builds character, but it's not the ''correct'' type of character. May's pretty much strained between forgiving people who hurt her, Mokuba blames himself for letting May get hurt, and Max is divided as to how all of this plays out.



---> Mokuba: [[spoiler: (to Alister) My name is Mokuba and I choose to be your sacrifice for your brother, Alister! Hit me with your best shot!]]

to:

---> Mokuba: [[spoiler: (to Alister) ''(to Alister)'' My name is Mokuba and I choose to be your sacrifice for your brother, Alister! Hit me with your best shot!]]



* NeverSayDie: Averted; the earliest a character says the word is chapter 4.



* RitualMagic: Mokuba goes through this when he first gains his powers.



* ShoutOut: The story has some of these.
** Two of them are based on the film ''WesternAnimation/TheIronGiant''. First is [[spoiler: Alister's strongest Duel Monster which is described to look like the titular giant but also has red eyes and powerful weapons. The second is Mokuba's speech toward Alister which states, "You are who you choose to be."]]
** Many of Max's later cards have this. For example 'Sorcerer's Assistant-Miey' is actually based on Mickey Mouse from The Sorcerer's Apprentice. (she even has her hair styled like Mickey Mouse ears and a red robe, but she doesn't have the infamous hat)
* ShownTheirWork: The author knows the series well, referencing stuff from the manga, the anime and researching cards (well, except for one). Many of the created cards were researched and based upon different works. Also during the scene where [[spoiler: Kaiba is bandaging some of May's wounds]], the author goes to great lengths to reveal how to bandage the bruises.



* ThreeAmigos: May, Max and Mokuba.

to:

* ThreeAmigos: May, Max and Mokuba.Mokuba, despite only knowing each other for about a day..



* UpToEleven: You know the whole thing about monsters in tablets and then the Duel Monster thing? This puts in the situation of spirits of Ancient Egyptians and even STARS to become Duel Monster Cards.



* YouSaidYouWouldLetThemGo: Inverted. [[spoiler: After May finishes her duel against Mai, she asks Dartz to release Yugi's soul as part of the deal. Dartz says he can't because May NEVER made a deal in question. She only asked for a way out.]]

However, this story is [[DarkerandEdgier dark]] once you get past the halfway mark. Do not expect the rules of the Pokémon universe to apply to Yu-Gi-Oh! villains that want to steal souls to empower an ancient deity. It soon becomes important for the characters to grow up and face their problems dead on, or else let the world become destroyed.

Second, Raphael wants her and she needs to run off before he does something...awful to her. Last, even if she is the Goddess of Joy, she has no magic power that she can use to defend herself.]]
