Don't mind me, just crying

Your story is very touching, heartbroken but also hilarious Your writting style is so amazing. L and Light is one of my most favorite couple, they are so opposite and alike at the same time and their canon story was, as you said, so tragic.
I usually like angst story and sad ending with one was dead and another one was living hell with agony and regret (how sadistic :v ) but your story's ending was, for me, so fantastic and perfect. Light and L had their second chance and perhaps they would have a happy ever after but it was sad and sore (at least for me) as well. They couldn't remember their previous lives, their tragic but also sweet, beautiful love story. Of course, they did not need those memories to love each other badly again and forever but still. I'd rather believe that every kiss and touch, in the future, would bring them some memory fragments (as it did with Light in your story) and one day, together, they could remember their whole story. It would be much simpler and more interesing if the Death Note reappeared, they worked together to solve the case then touched the notebook at the same time and ... screamed together :v Maybe, their next actions would be kissing passionately then going to bedroom or whatever :)))))) Do you think it's relevant?
Thank you for writting this beautiful story and sorry for any grammar mistakes I made. I hope you understand what I want to say, don't you?

This was such a frigging good fic, Lyke oh ma geeeee its so good. No matter how many times I read this I always get a lump in my throat while my emotions vary from tears to laughter to crying again to anger to crying again to just plain and simply going 'awwwwwwww' over and over again. Love it, one of the best in the LxLight fandom. Xx - Thunderpants.

Over the last four days I have been reading this. I have laughed, I have cried, I have received strange looks from people in the school hallway. This was simply fantastic, and I adore you now even more than I did before.

I... I can think of no words to use to describe this that would be appropriate. This is beyond a master piece. I have no trouble in saying that this is easily one of the best fanfiction's I have ever had the pleasure to read. I feel I should thank you for creating such a great piece. So, thank you.

This story made me cry throughout the entire freaking thing. I loved the ending, it was a happy ending without being sappy which is always good :)

I watched Titanic without crying when Jack died.
I watched Spirit without crying during any of the numerous sad parts- capture scene, train scene.
I watched The Avengers without crying when Phil Coulson died.
I bid goodbye to my friends and new family in Japan when I left to return home after 6 weeks without crying.
Two of my best friends left to another school and I did not cry when I said goodbye to them.
But I couldn't help but let the tears flow when I read this story. I dislike crying, and therefore I dislike tragedy and angst in general. So, I beg of you, do not ask me why I read this. Boredom, I suppose, caused by a lazy Sunday afternoon and a disinclination to study for my calculus test.
...This...this story. It took me a little over an hour to read all 49 chapters. And at the end, when I read those last few words, I believe that I blinked, shut my laptop, slid off of my bed, and crawled over to my corner. Where I remained silent, attempting to get a grip on myself and stop the overload of emotions for what I estimate to be a good 15 minutes.
It is only just now that I am able to return to my laptop and actually function properly enough to type.
I might be overreacting, which could be possibly true, but...
This story was heartbreakingly tragic, yet undeniably happy. I hate it and love it all at once, simply because of the emotions it forces one to experience. You can't NOT respond to something like this. Ah, let me explain.
First off: you have an incredibly good grasp of the human side of both L and Light. Sometimes, with characters like them, who are so intelligent, it's hard to equate humanity, emotions with them. It can be ridiculously easy to skip over their human sides in favor of reinforcing their brilliance and status as geniuses. But I adored how you were able to add that in there. Light's POV is often written in- I'm guilty of it as well, though for different reasons- simply because he is a bit easier to identify with. He can seem somewhat more human, more emotional than L, and that, for some people, makes him easier to write in.
But even then, he can still be difficult, because there's so much more to him than simply his desire to rule the world as Kira, and many people often overlook that. You, however, didn't. You made his emotions and thoughts, his desires and fears so tangible, made his conflict over being Kira to life. He didn't just focus on being Kira; you wrote that he acknowledged his human side, that he wanted L and knew that he didn't truly want to be Kira, and I truly love that. The way you wrote Light's character was perfect, and I love that you have a good grasp on him.
I would have liked to see more of L's POV. I loved hearing what Light thought about him, how he saw L, but I would have loved to see some of the vice versa.
Now, the storyline. So well thought out, not spastic and spur-of-the-moment like so many other stories seem to be, hinging on what the readers want. I know this is a rewrite, but even still, I'm fairly sure it was pretty much the same storyline, so I'm going off of that. Despite the different occurrences within the plotline, you still managed to make it adhere somewhat to canon and have it end almost the same way- that same tragic ending. I adored it, no matter that my heart and soul died a little bit when L and then Light did. Ah, I digress.
The characterization, like I said, was spot-on, as was Light and L's somewhat tumultuous and really very tragic relationship. You have no idea how much my heart was clenching throughout the story. This is exactly why I don't read sad things, dammit!
Anyways, I really have no complaints about any of the characterization, and I was a big fan of Light's thought processes. He had a snarky sense of inner humor that brought a smirk to my face many a time. Well done; I appreciate his sense of humor.
And the end... I believe, that right before I resorted to my Emo Corner Where I Desperately Attempt to Calm My Emotions, a peculiar, keening noise worked its way out of my throat. That sound was a sound of mixed happiness and sadness. The ending was beautiful and perfect, happy and sad and overall, poignant. It's unbearably sad that Light and L died, that they will never remember everything they went through and what happened, and the re-enactment of the scene that occurred right before Light found himself succumbing to L's apparent sexiness absolutely tore at my heartstrings. Ah, the whole story did. Let's just establish that fact, yes?
But... that they got a second chance! Nothing will ever be the same, there will always be that feeling of slight deja-vu, but they'll be together, won't they? It was just- ah, I can't explain it. It just was happy with a touch of peculiar melancholy, and it left a distinct impression on my heart and soul. I loved this as much as I hated it, I've said, and don't take it wrong- from me, that is one of the highest compliments I can give, because I came to actually care about this story.
You write it so that the reader feels and experiences everything along with the characters, and that is a talent only very few have. I commend you for that.
And... now that I think about it...I actually wrote a short one-shot that is similar to the ending of this story, where Light receives a second chance, chooses to throw the Death Note into a river, and later, finds L in a coffee shop, where he invites him out for tennis. Odd. The Strangest Sense of Deja-Vu.
...I believe, though, that it is time to wrap this up. Allow me to say that you have just torn my heart to shreds, and that I believe I will need some time to re-accustom myself to real life. This story was beautiful, and the ending was perfect. There really isn't a good word to describe my feelings about this, other than I loved it, and as cliché as it is, I shall end by saying that you have done a wonderful job, and to please, keep up the good work you do!
