Very intense and epic preview Senpai!

It was very deep and it basically summed up most of what you were telling me about it. I really loved it and I just have to say that it was the ideal preview for BC.

Really, can't wait to see it XD

Oh Btw, at the end, when Near said that B used another human being to kill himself, I'm thinking that it was Near...

Though I could be wrong, that is my theory...

Anyway, totally awesome :)

Ooh, I LOVE this premise! Dag, wish I'd have thought of it..

Seriously, though, this is great. And so plausible. I would definitely try a larger fic with this idea.

Great work, as per usual!

Side note: Running Up That Hill? *high fives* Love that song. xD

Okay, my brain is kinda spazzing out on me as it is (I blame you by the way, lol) but lets attempt to review and make sense... you never know, it may happen one day lol.

First off, awesome. Nice little twist on the Wammy universe. I liked that BB was in the whole second generation Wammy boy's time-line. I liked the tiny 'grey' area's in the twisted Near. His more bleak view of both his mentor and role-model. His stark opinions of what L has enlisted the waifs and strays for being slightly more sinister than what it appears to be. (Our discussions of this further conveys the shared opinion).

Secondly, again applause, applause for the greying of Near...very delicately done. You neither pushed him too far nor not far enough. The balance of contamination was perfect. I liked that you also had Near learning from BB. Having him best Near... a nice touch. There are many ways one Orphan can best another, as there are many ways to show intelligence. There is book smart that Near has... Gut smarts that Mello possesses... and then there are people smarts which also includes life smarts, which BB certainly has here. He knew exactly what he wanted and how best to achieve it and that was through manipulation. Near would have no method to counter this type of intelligence as it requires applied techniques which he would be lacking.

All in all... I thoroughly enjoyed this little introduction to 'Brother's Contaminated' they were my favorite collection of cos-play shots and I look forward to seeing more of this story.

Now, must wait until you decide to send my my next chappy of 'What's My Name?' to beta... bouncey... I wanna read it now! Am in the mood for BB...

Well done honey.

WEL my dear... APPROVAL.

Except for one thing.

I think I must disagree with you on the matter of who would be first in line of succession if BB and near were at Wammy's at the same time. I believe that Near would STILL be number one, and I will explain why: L beat BB in the LABB murder cases, yes? L BB. Kira pwn'd L. Kira L. Near pwn'd Kira. Near Kira. THEREFOR Near L which ultimately means that Near BB. MY LOGIC IS INFALLIBLE. Aside from that, looking at the How to Read, it shows that Near is actually more intelligent than L (for real, I was shocked) who, as it turned out was more intelligent than BB. I can believe that BB helped Near to a point, but I think past that point, Near would have pwn'd BB into the dust.


But that's just me. :)

GOOD JOB. I like it.
