I always thought Bakura too xD he is WAAAAY more evil than Marik. But yes, Marik is quite pushy and throws a fit when he doesn't get what he wants xD so bakura might get lazy and be like "eh...whatever"
IKR! i always wonder what the authors think about any kind of pairings. just laugh it off? get pissed off? haha. but yeah, they fight like a married couple. seriously, their abridged personalities are pretty much the same as their real ones, just a bit more exaggerated
Hahaha, I know! If it were me, I think I'd just laugh, and if anyone asked questions about canon pairings, I'd just play along and be cryptic... O_o Like, Takahashi will NOT say if Joey and Mai are lovers. He just likes to tease us!!! D:< And yes. I think that's the beauty of Marik and Bakura; they're the only characters who are actually pretty accurate on their original selves.
