Well anon, I think Malik would like a little bit of sugar. You see, Malik has a tendency to lie to himself, to void certain elements of his past and create a certain sense of perfection in his mind. This sugar coated construction falters sometime but for the most part Malik is very talented at wearing this mask for other people and for himself.
While Bakura is perfectly aware of every aspect of his broken life. Staightforward, simple and bitter like black coffee.
