Nana: Hello! This is my second shot at fanfic100, a livejournal community. I had so much fun doing it the last time that I thought I'd do it again, this time in the Death Note fandom. For those who don't know, the goal here is to write 100 short fanfics using various prompts, centered around a certain character, group, or pairing. I picked the Yagami family, since I'm very interested in their dynamics. Enjoy, and look forward to 99 more of these things in the future!

Title: Catch Some Bad Guys For Me

Prompt: 091. Birthday

Rating: PG

"Are you sure you're alright with this?" Soichiro says, staring at his mountain of paperwork, knowing that Light's opinion is irrelevant. "I'm sorry. You know I'd be there if I could."

"It's fine," says Light, voice high and clear as a strike on a triangle. "You have to work, and eight isn't an important birthday anyway. Just catch some bad guys for me, okay?"

Soichiro stares again at the papers littering his desk. He won't be catching any bad guys; his recent promotion has made his job less exciting. Still he says, "of course. Happy birthday, Light. I love you."
