First off…just so that you all know…I am not a fan of yaoi…I never have been…

First off…just so that you all know…I am not a fan of yaoi…I never have been…

However…I have plenty of friends who are into it…so they sort of…made me read it as well…

While I wasn't interested in the more sexual of stuff…I was intrigued by the plotlines of most yaoi stories…

Namely…the struggle to be accepted in a harsh society…the struggle to accept themselves…this is the part that caught my attention…

Now…about this story…I have a somewhat odd reason for writing it…you see, a friend of mine accused me of being homophobic…I assure you all…I'm not…he kept needling me for a long time about it until I cracked and asked him what could I do to prove him wrong…

He told me to write something…pro M x M…and post it on a blog or something…that's how I came up with the idea to write it on FanFiction…so I spent several months reading other writer's stories to get an idea on how the relationships should be described…

So I wrote my first attempt…in Eyeshield 21…Taming the Beast which features Gao and Kisaragi…I'll say it outright…I believe it was an utter disaster…

Then I thought of Death Note…it's one of the most interesting manga I've ever read…so I started writing Possession…

Why?...L has the most interesting depth as a character…because so much of his background was left unexplored…or rather, it was more the idea of…what if? What if things went this way? Or that way?

Initially…I planned on making Light the bad guy…but then…I had a change of heart and put Misa in the role…

Why did I put L as uke?...it was because he seems so clueless about relationships that I decided it would be more logical for the more experienced Light to be seme…

Regarding the LXNear pairing…I initially planned to make Near the uke…but…then I felt that since L was around longer…thus he was more socially awkward…that he would be more used to the role of uke…therefore…Near became seme…

So anyways…to all yaoi fans out there…I'm sorry if I messed up anywhere in the story…I will admit this though, I definitely enjoyed writing this…it was a challenge for me…and I enjoyed every minute of it…so…I truly hope you all enjoyed it as well…perhaps I'll write another story one day…until then…see you…
