I was just about to dive into a rant on why Lelouch should not have lost but instead the match should have been an draw. However, I just read the first review and I was like hm... u probably already have a lot of criticism on the first chapter to deal with.
Though, in spite of who won I understand how and why you put I it that way. In the end I feel as if Light Yagami will forever be Icarus. So I'm counting this as , Light: 1-Lelouch:0
The fight is just beginning.

It seems as though many people have been criticizing this first chapter- and worse yet, not reading further- simply because Lelouch lost the match. This is sad because not only are they depriving themselves of an amazingly pleasurable reading experience, they are also judging the story based on a single event, simply due to their bias for Lelouch.
It's no secret that most people familiar with both Death Note and Code Geass have a preference for Lelouch over Light- most likely because of some sort of idealistic psychology. In other words, they like Lelouch because he had a decent motive in their eyes and wasn't as twisted. I'm not as judging as them, however, and I'd just like to say that the more cynical a character is, the more realistic they are, in my opinion. Lelouch himself knew that, after all, and so did Light. The world doesn't always come out all neat and tidy, and for that reason, I actually like Light better- simply because he did a better job portraying that facet of reality.
Thus, I do think there's nothing wrong with Lelouch losing, and I look forward to your next update.

Oh... lelouch lost? I'm sorry, did I read that right? Impossible. I'm sorry for my attitude but as you may tell, I am more biased towards lelouch and I am absolutely sulking at the moment. Lelouch is a chessmaster. He plays chess on a regular basis. Light? He hardly plays it. Even from an unbiased point of view, it is lelouch that should have won. I'm almost tempted to stop reading now but I'll read on. Cause overall I really like your writing and how you had set it up! So well done on a good, interesting first chapter!

Wow. I really admire how complex the plot is - which is why I understand the huge breaks between your updates. But still, doesn't make the wait any less torturous! It tends to interrupt the plot flow... but still, great work as usual

HAHAHHAHAHA SILLY LELOUCH. I totally root for him though. Great promise on the opening chapter :D

Lol no way Lelouch would lose at chess to some crazy murderer with a god-complex... Well im not reading beyond chapter 1 because Lelouch who is a mastermind at chess and tactics in general would not lose to a guy that knows nothing about chess and tactics it dosen't matter how intelligent Light is if he dosen't play chess he has no way of winning -,- To be 'good' at chess you need to have years of practice and training and to know chess strategies. To beat LELOUCH he would need way more than that... and Light's intelligence is just manipulation of people while Lelouch can do that and way more Lelouch is intelligent in many ways while Light just knows how to manipulate people... This just shows your favoritism towards Light and for this reason I will not read on.

lelouch is my favorite charecter and he always will be. your story makes me belief that the crossover really happened. i love that your story kind of matches the events that took place in the anime. keep up the good work
