I don't review scenes too much. But to be honest it was beautifully paced. You really could not have leaked the details for the plot better. Halfway through the chapter I had a faint suspicion about emelia and was on the edge to see if I was right. and I was!

The thing I love the most about this story, these first two chapters especially, is how much insight we get into the minds of our two main characters, without making the other characters aware of it. So often, we're left to interpret from the dialog of the characters, but as you've demonstrated so wonderfully, what they say doesn't always reflect what they're thinking. (I also believe that's why books are always better than the movies based on them.)
L and Light both have so much more than meets the eye going on under the surface, and I feel like you've done such a perfect characterization of these two.

This story was so good, I spent a great time reading it! Light's personality (or must I say personalities?) and L and Light's twisted relationship makes it one of the best of the genre.
You write emotions, sensations and thoughts like no one else, thank you so much for that experience you provide me!
I have only one critique (more like a regret actually): I would have liked to know if L accepted Watari's request, and if the two lovebirds ended ruling the new Wammy's house, that would have been cool to know!
But I guess I'll never know xD

So... Your writing is excellent. Truly, the way you weave words is artistic and impressive.
So. Light has figured out the lust he's feeling, I see. That was remarkably fast.

Like this story, but this chapter was slightly disapointing. Although other than that, the story is good.

Omg I love this story! Lightkira is so cool! And the ending is so sweet!

I read your other story, Pitch, some days ago and was instantly hooked! This fic proves to be just as good and intriguing! I love the way you portray the difficult and yet exciting relationship between L and Light - nothing's ever easy between them but then again, that's what makes this so believable. I also like the way you finished the story because then everyone can imagine what will happen to them in the future. I really hope you're going to write another story about those two again when inspiration strikes you - you really do have a gift for storytelling! Thank you for this long, amazing read!

You are so amazing!
Amelia is Light!

This was really, really good. The kind of fic I've always wanted to read about these 2. Loved it!
| L Lawliet Ryu chapter 25 . 7/24/2014
I honestly love LxLight a bit more than LightxL simply because it seems too obvious Light would want to take the role of dominance. It's nice to see L put him in his place. That and the fact I love that L is six years older than Light.
On another note, I absolutely love this fic. It's taking me a while to read it because I'm going between this one, Second Chance by SlightlyPsycho, and Death Note Manga Volume 1... I have a bit of ADHD. Haha. But really, I absolutely LOVE THIS FIC!

I am absolutely loving this so far. It's hilarious and angsty at the same time. The perfect for my indecisive mood! Can't wait to read ahead some more.

Hello! I'm a reader and big fan of your story PITCH, and so decided to give this story a whirl. What a journey! I'm such a fangirl for the 'possessive and kinda crazy but still caring' Light and the 'submissively confused but still cleverly awesome' L :D This story ( and your other) was just to my liking! I have to say that I am in awe of your writing skills! You inject so much passion into every L/Light encounter and your mastery of words is incredible! I keep opening a new tab to look up a word and I really feel like my vocabulary has grown while reading this. Well done and thank you for sharing :)

You should be a legitimate author (if you're not already). The characters, details, interactions, all of it was amazing! 11/10 in my opinion:D

Oh my... God. This has to be one of THEE best Deathnote fics... Ever. Now, I'm not going to exaggerate... But FUCK you are one talented writer. I'm almost upset that I haven't read this sooner. Thank you for sharing your vision! I was a little disappointed with the ending((more where it ended, not the actual conclusion)) coulda fit one more lemony scene in there... ; u;
All joking aside, I heartily applaud you. It took me a couple days to finish and was not disappointed! I'm glad light went ((semi)) back to normal in the end. But I do admit, it was interesting how Kira and Light split personalities. You captured all of the emotion and turmoil so well. I wish I had such talent! Keep on writing!
