Title: Names

By: Bleeding Destruction

Began: August 5, 2013

Summary: Then he spoke, "I look forward to beating you on the exam, Yagami-kun." This was new; this was interesting, and Raito loved every second of it. "And I look forward to beating you, Ryuuzaki-san." AU. Old Dialogue study revamped. LxLight.

Warnings: None

Author's Notes: This originally was a dialogue study on Light and L I wrote a couple years ago. When I found it again, I rewrote it so that there was more than solid dialogue. This was two pages, and now that I've rewrote it, it's thirteen pages. So I did a lot of editing. It's split into several short drabbles. Enjoy, and please leave a review if you like it or have any helpful advice. I've gotten everything typed, so it's all a matter of posting. I'll probably do one or two a day, assuming I have time for even that.

I-

Yagami Raito was known for many things. His intelligence, his good looks, his tennis playing- but not his competitiveness. He hid that well. However, something about the strange dark-haired man made Raito determined to defeat him in the exams, and they hadn't even met before.

Raito just knew that this man was his equal.

"What is your name?" Raito asked. If this was going to be a rivalry, even if it was just in his head, he had to know his opponent.

The dark-haired male looked Raito over almost as if he was studying the brunette. "Ryuuzaki," he said at last. "And you are?"

Raito smirked. His name was very well known. "Yagami Raito."

Ryuuzaki seemed unimpressed- that was something Raito had not really experience since early childhood, before he had made a name for himself as the top student in Japan. Then he spoke, "I look forward to beating you on the exam, Yagami-kun."

This was new; this was interesting, and Raito loved every second of it. "And I look forward to beating you, Ryuuzaki-san."

II-

The exam proctor was shocked. No one had ever made a perfect score on the To-oh entrance exams. "You both had perfect scores! It's impossible," he declared. "You must have cheated."

Both Raito and Ryuuzaki were unamused by this turn of events, and the dark-haired man's apathy showed in his words. "Ridiculous. Have you any proof?"

Raito scoffed, rolling chocolate-colored eyes. "Of course he doesn't have any proof, Ryuuzaki-san. Don't be stupid."

The test proctor didn't want to admit Yagami-kun was correct, instead saying, "You'll both just have to take this new exam."

Neither Raito nor Ryuuzaki were impressed. "Okay, let's do it now, Yagami-kun," the elder suggested.

The brunette nodded in agreement. "Hai. Easier than coming back later, ne?"
