I am loving this so far, you write light's depression so well and if he had not found the death note I could definitely see the story would have gone like this. It's scary how well I relate to light and the way he speaks about how he was feeling. Knowing I felt like that for years, it almost felt like i was reading my own journal!

I read through this story in two days. It's really captivating and authentically written. None of the characters feel of even though they don't take on their typical roles.
It's sad that Mr Wammy had to die so early on, but I understand that it works as a cataclysm for the story and their relationship.
The interaction between all of them seem very realistic. I enjoyed Nears brave little journey to Japan.
I'm really curious on what you envisioned to happen now that they both are ready to work together. I hope Light gets a chance to heal and find peace with himself. Weather this means a Lawlight ending or not.
I hope you are well and live treats you good. I would be insanely happy to read more of this.

I'm kind of missing Kira while looking at this miserable Light. Kira was like- the ultimate version of Light, ablaze with passion as hot as lava, and this Light is not even the shadows of it. Smh.

Hello, I just wanted to drop by once again to say I am deeply obsessed with this fanfic and I have been for over a decade. The chokehold this story has had me in for years is indescribable. I must have read this story at least 5 times over the decade, probably more honestly. Your writing is simply beautiful, your characterization is incredible, and your pacing is perfect. It really is. This will ALWAYS be my favorite DN fanfiction ever. I adore everything about it. I really do! Fr when I saw you updated with a few chapters back in 2021 I started climbing up the walls LMFAOOO I was going CRAZZZYY anyway nothing will ever have me in the chokehold quite like this story and I will always always love it and you for writing it. Take care and hope you’re doing well

Story is well written, but... most of it fairly boring and meandering. Too many points of views, lot of annoying coincidences. But my top criticism is - this doesn't feel like Light or L from canon. Both are way out of character. Especially Light.
| Random Dude chapter 3 . 1/18/2023
This is far too contrived a coincidence to really make sense. L - most reclusive person on the whole planet randomly hanging out in some suburbs in Tokyo?
Secondly Light is far too proud, no matter what, to ever allow himself to be in such a state. If he wanted to commit suicide - he wouldn't walk mindlessly around looking to jump.
Sorry, but this is way too OOC and I call BS on it.

Hoping your original fiction deadlines go well - if you've crafted those stories even half as well as this one, your books should be bought and read repeatedly. I love everything about this story, by which I mean it has beaten my insides to a pulp and sometimes been very difficult to read, and it is incredible. When (or if) updates appear, it will absolutely be the best day of my year.

using a computer/phone in a dark room very literally melts your eyes, use an overhead light or don't use a device at night.

This is so GOOD I'm so happy to see them progressing forwards. The journey they have ahead won't be easy by any consideration but this turning point is making me so, so happy for L and Light

Great, now I'm sobbing my eyes out too. I am so happy and sad that we got this far
| broken5pieces chapter 57 . 8/25/2022
Welp. Guess the heist is definitely not gonna go smoothly

Pffft these poor introverts, their space being invaded by the intimidating extrovert
