| RandomlyGenericName chapter 14 . 6/26
This is a great fic, everyone in character and trying to screw each other over.
A reply to fellow reviewer korran- Lelouch lost the chess game because he was distracted. He failed to take it seriously enough, and rather disregarded it, leading to his loss.
In addition, while Lelouch is a far better at tactician than Light, Light has three advantages over him. One, being Kira is far less time consuming and stressful than being Zero. He simply needs his Death Note, a newsfeed, and a little alone time every now and then, and never needs to be anywhere special or make appearances. He is also skilled at detective work and uncovering secrets, having prior experience. Last but not least, Light's God complex means he suffers no moral dilemmas, and grants him incredible force of will and a lack of restraints. He will not hold back because you have hostages and will sacrifice any of his pawns without remorse. All is expendable to him, while Lelouch has friends, family and morals to tie him down.

Okay, having Light win the game almost automatically made me lose interest in this story. Now no offense to Death Note, but when you compare Light to Lelouch, Lelouch always trumps. And this isn't due to his Geass or any comparison between him and Light in terms of supernatural abilities. Its more due to the fact that Lelouch has more drive and plans ahead more. When I watched Death Note the thing I noticed about Light is that he is more reactionary than anything else when he went up against L. His plans were mostly one dimensional and he rarely thought past his immediate plan. Lelouch on the other hand was already planning to destroy Britannia and the introduction of his Geass only accelerated his plans by a few decades according to him in the first episode. Light on the other hand needed the Death Note to do anything, he had no plans prior to him getting it that amounted to becoming Kira.
The other thing is that Light is unwilling to set things up for the long game. When he was talking about creating a world of justice and being its God, he never thought past his own life time in my opinion. He even went so far as to refuse the Eyes of the Shinigami because it would limit his life span. Lelouch on the other hand's plan at the end was to die in order to unite the world.
Lelouch's dedication and forethought are light years ahead of Light's. In terms of commitment, intelligence, and forethought Light might be better than average. Lelouch on the other hand is superior to just about every other anime character.
