Did I see a reference to "For Whom the Bell Tolls" by John Donne?
| Guest chapter 41 . 6/29/2015
Can we look forward to something from you centering around Light and L's reactions to the recent SCOTUS ruling on marriage equality?
| Zenthisoror chapter 36 . 6/14/2015
Oh my god, I'm seeing so much British politics in this I just love it. It's the Poll Tax, isn't it? Gods, that sounds like the Poll Tax! Is Light about to see the door?
I'd sort of imagined the Lady as Margaret Thatcher, and, kind of horribly, because I feel it's a little insulting to your Light and L, these two sort of reminded me of a younger Tony Blair and Alastair Campbell, which is a bit disturbing but thankfully it's only echoes, echoes.

My god, this is written fantastically. I mean the characters are barely recognisable from the canon,but ai simply don't care. This is like Alan B'stard and House of Cards, all rolled up in one greasy cigar of the dirty politics, corruptive power and black humour goodness. Light's first person narrative is winning, and even though he's a bastard like the rest of them you just can't help rooting for him...and, haha, oh, this really does make me think of the MP expenses scandal!

Oh My GOD
that sex scene in the "church"
that was something
Also Light killed Takada's sister, and the Lady.
At first I was confused that Light was the one doing it : he doesn't think of the murders, of the Death Note or of any gods of death. I have also read AUs where he isn't the possessor of the Death Note.
You have been really subtle about it! You cheeky author you!
Oh my god there is 41 chapters, and I have been reading your fic for eight hours.
Congratulations on your talent! I will now go be a productive human being.

This is amazing. It's hilarious and well constructed with deep and emotional moments that keep you on edge.
WHO IS KILLING THE POLITICIANS?! It should be Light but I would not suspect him if I had't read Death Note.
I love how you have introduced the mystery as a detail (even though the funeral was the opening scene) that takes on more and more importance.
"I am not your creation. I make myself"- Oh Light
"I destroy and create" - It's HIM! Is it him? Shit I don't know
You rock my socks, good job, thank you for writing this.

Omg been reading this non-stop and I just...*flails*
I can't describe how much I love this fic and how much I've enjoyed reading it so far. The interactions between all the characters are amazing and there has been so many times I've laughed out loud. I love love all the interactions between Light and L especially though, I cannot get enough of them. I know the story is coming to an end but I seriously wanna continue reading about them. I hope they get a happy ending. ;_;
Please go mad and write a beach chapter and more /shot
I have to fan myself whenever Light starts describing finely crafted things, especially his suits oh my lol
That pet name hnnng...I wonder if it's short for tinker?
I'd love to see more interactions between L and Kira XD

Your review count has been sitting at 199 for ages and it offends my eyes, so now that I've finally finished reading this monster (for now), I'm doing something about it.
Your writing style is absolutely incredible, and the next time someone whines to me about the inferiority of first person narration, I'm stapling this fic to their face. You pull off a very delicate balancing act of giving us a narrator who is not only unreliable but an utter, unrepentant bastard of the highest degree, yet somehow making him funny and sympathetic enough for readers to see why other characters could fall in love with him. Heck, *I* kind of fell in love with him, and "hot mess" isn't even my type. And the ways in which you managed to make it clear to the reader that Light's interpretations don't align with reality without ever downplaying Light's complete conviction that he's right...how even. How did you do that. It's glorious.
I'm in awe of your characterization in general, honestly. All of your characters feel rooted in their canon counterparts, but they're very much their own entities, and I love them. Even flattened and misinterpreted by Light's perspective, all of them came across as complex, full characters, which is another incredible testament to your mastery of first person. If my ability to art had ever developed past the stick figure stage, I would be working on a rendition of Kiyomi cradling Light in the bathroom after he gets news of L's "suicide," because it's such a poignant image and I could dissect that scene forever. I could dissect all the scenes forever, probably. Your characters are all jerks with sad lives and I love them.
The only nitpick with this story I could make is that several chapters got so caught up in the glory of L/Light banter (which is indeed glorious) that the plot wound up spinning its wheels for extended periods. I can't say I really minded much-so much fiction I read seems to be all plot at the expense of character development, so I found it refreshing to read something that tipped the other way-but it is something I noticed. All I can say is if I had that much skill for witty banter, I would struggle to cut any of it, either.
This is becoming more of a ramble than a review, but I'll just close by saying I love this fic, I recommend it to everyone, and I'm looking forward to the final chapter.

I've been away for so long. I missed your writing, your long paragraphs and how you make them so alive and raw and and completely dirty liars.
I'm stunned, I've read the last 4 chapters in a roll and I'm still digesting it all. (it took me almost 3 days to read it all) And I think it will take me a week to get my head over it.
All this plot twists, Light's plan about Tsukino and wife, L and Ryuk having that goddam weird conversation. It still makes me wonder WTF is going to happen next!
I'm soooooo curious! lol how can you do that? every chapter makes me sweat because I cannot foresee what is going on next, you're sooo brilliant! :3 KUDOS
I LOVED the way they came out to press, and I love everytime someone asks about their relationship. I enjoyed so damn much L's interview on TV hahaha it was FABULOUS! he was fucking greattt! xD I love him, I still think he should say something dirty to press, it would be bombastic ;P
Sorry for desapearing, sweetie... :/ I'll be here for the next installment - be it the last one or not.
Have a great time writing, darling, may the inspirations and muses be with you and with our degenerated loved boys :P many hugssss xxxxxx tai
btw: How's the puppy, I'm guessing it's not a puppy anymore, lol it's been such a long time... I really am sorry for being away. Take care you and your pack! :3
| anon chapter 41 . 1/12/2015
i'm honestly crying at the under pressure references in L's speech... i don't know how you pull of writing such a heartbreaking fic and making it hilarious at the same time... you are blessed with the gifts of writing my friend
| Guest chapter 39 . 11/22/2014
omg light is so freaking hilarious in this chapter, he's so full of shit thinking he can manipulate everyone with his shitass ways oh God, perfect.
| NigerianGeek chapter 40 . 10/23/2014
Wait. So Ryuk is Light? Huh.
This was a very fun story to read. Can't wait for the end.
| NigerianGeek chapter 34 . 10/21/2014
I didn't expect that.
I knew Ryuk was going to show again eventually, didn't expect it to turn out this way though.
| NigerianGeek chapter 29 . 10/21/2014
So Ryuk's in the story huh? I wonder if L will be able to see him and how.
