I really wasn't prepared for these last chapters... poor Light. I do hope you can continue this story, as heart wrenching as it is.

Hey, really enjoying the story so far. Not sure if you want to go back to fix errors but I thought I'd point out that Nakimura isn't a Japanese name. Nakamura would be the closest. Also, Tokyo Airport doesn't exist. It's either Narita or Haneda which both fly to Heathrow. Just little things that stand out.

This chapter makes me feel giddy in a strange way. Lol I don't know why but maybe it's just because I love reading this. Great chapter.

Awwww :) that was so heartwarming! This chapter has so much fluff :D I love it! Brings a smile to my face that I can't quite erase (not that I want to). :3

I am so shook that you can write English better than me and it is my first language. I’m getting better though XD

I've read this story a couple of times over the years and it's always an excellent read. Light in particular is very believable. He's likable and persuasive yet incredibly egotistic with a cruel streak to boot. The symptoms of his depression are well portrayed. It's easy to see how this person could have become Kira. Despite that, I hope that he figures himself out and we see some of the legitimately good/happy Light when he lacked his memories in the manga. That Light always felt so wildly different to me both from Kira and from the depressed Light at the beginning of the series. I suppose having a goal really helped him out.
My heart really goes out to L in this story though. He's utterly incapable of interacting in a way that makes sense to other people and no one is taking the time to try to understand his motives/intentions aside from Watari and he'll no longer be able to do so. I'm intrigued by how taken in L was by Light in this story; it matches the intrigue he had in the manga but since there isn't Kira to contend with it's more personal.
At any rate, you've crafted a great story with believable characters; I enjoy reading it.

Omg... This was so heartwarming 3333 I can feel the bromance, and I almost ship them! I might as well say I do ship them, but...you know, something about them just feels so pure and I want to keep it that way. On a lighter note (haha see what I did there?! Xdddd), they will definitely come together through their depression, lol. (Okay, maybe that wasn't so light)... But I like the idea of the power of friendship healing them. :D this was such a good chapter, it makes me feel hope and I wish I could have a friend like that

Oh geez, the car porn isn't over yet... I don't understand it and probably won't for a long time.

It's only logical that he stays depressed unless some sort breakthrough comes. And that breakthrough would probably be L getting closer to Light in a sense.
You don't have to stick to one-word titles?

Cars are boring.
And he almost said it. I wish there would be another chance he could say it. Let him let go of his pride and thank L properly.

Ch 24 review
It's kind of strange how Light suddenly feels 'alive' just by coming to the Wammy House. Is it the anticipation of more mind battles with L, or is it just because that provided a break from his routine? It doesn't make sense with the latter, since he has been living with 'boredom' for his whole life, and I don't see him experiencing anything challenging right now. It just doesn't match up. If he's not being entertained by L now, then he should be just as depressed. Or is it at the promise of help that he feels hope? Kind of a weak reason, because perhaps he has been hoping for his whole life. I'll just put it off as plot purposes, sadly, but it's true. Either way, with his state it would be nearly impossible to draw him out of his depression unless he thinks of the world in a different light, which has not happened.
Are Japanese people really that boring and such workaholics that it would justify light getting depressed there, but when he comes to another country he's suddenly all eager and interested, despite the fact that no one said anything even remotely challenging or 'genius-esque', but rather acted like normal people? Or is it because he was at his lowest a few days ago that he is more willing to converse with people and accept help?
| KuroiDenki chapter 24 . 8/24
To be honest, Light deserved to be depressed for the past year because he is such an arrogant and prideful prick. Hopefully after this his mind would be rehabilitated into a state where he would be humbled instead of bask in his newfound superiority at others.

Coffee makes your breath stink. Long-term-wise, it isn't good for you.

This fic was tearing me apart in the past few chapters.
