Rating: M
Pairings: Gozaburo/Seto
Warnings: In holding true to the original, there will be themes of child abuse, rape, chan/under-age sex, murder and yaoi/slash
Summary: The worst day of Seto's life was the day he faced Kaiba Gozaburo over a chessboard and won both his and his brother's adoption. It had seemed wonderful at the time but after years under Gozaburo's sharp eyes and violent temper, Seto would look back on that day and curse it.

A/N: Years and years ago, I wrote for the Yu-Gi-Oh fandom and, some days, I just want to go back and smack that little kid around a couple of times and ask what she was doing with her life (not just because of the fanfiction, mind, but... Eh.).
Anyway, I was posting some of my old shite at Archive of Our Own (AO3) and got to re-reading Seto's Pain (SP) which was a huge epic about Kaiba Seto and the pain he suffered at his adopted father's hands before Gozaburo's death. And there I am, reading it, and wondering what sort of crack I was on back then. *nervous laughter* So, since I've recently started work on a re-write of Abandon in the Harry Potter fandom, it came to me that I could work on a re-write of SP, especially when I was having trouble working on HP stuff.
So, this is that re-write. It'll be updated as I finish chapters – this is more for my amusement than any reader reaction – and there is almost certain to be months between some updates. If you're looking for a fic that will be posted weekly, this isn't it. So don't come to this fic with any expectations.

In the original SP, Seto faced a plethora of terrible things at the hands of his adopted father, and I'd like to keep many of those elements in this re-write, even though I know canon!Gozaburo wasn't really physically abusive to Seto. That's not to say that things aren't going to change because, honestly, I was a troubled kid with a really screwed up imagination – I'd like to think I've matured a bit – just, you know, read the warnings.

If, for some god-awful reason, you want to read the original piece of crap, there is a copy of it that has seen some grammatical and spelling editing up on AO3. (There's also an un-edited version floating around on the web somewhere, but I very much suggest going for the edited copy.)
