Author has written 32 stories for Death Note.

Seriously, listen to Death Note the Musical. It's absolutely astounding and has inspired me so very much.

My tumblr is: nilah-xapiel


Playlist for Primitive Liars, and below a little bit of a summary on how the song fits in, as well as the best lines.

Dangerous - Sort of an overall theme. L is a dangerous man and loves Light. It also suits other characters that will come into play later. Inspiring Line: "I bet you didn't know someone could love you this much."

Lilo - Mostly Light's POV in this song, a lot about his feelings toward L and about himself. Inspiring Lines: "I love your brain but I hate your guts, 'cause we won't ever be." or "I'm just so fucked up on the head/wrong girl, wrong body, wrong mind."

Beggin For Thread -Very much L's view of Light in the chapters after their initial meeting. Inspiring Lines: "I know my actions, they may get confusing/you got me begging for thread to sew this hole up that you left in my head."

Believe Me, I'm Lying -Both of them, annoying the shit out of the other with lies. Sort of an emphasis on L though. Inspiring Line: "I could make you be the queen of the world, but I won't, because you're full of imperfections."

Light's Out - Kind of the Festival Chapter's theme song. Inspiring Line: "Somehow I've figured out how well you keep your secrets now/I'll let you fill the room with smoke and mirrors, things look clearer, just don't panic."

Dread In My Heart - Light's POV, especially in the chapter where he's revealed as an Omega. "There's a devil in my brain/and he likes to poke around and he likes to tell me things/whenever I feel like I might be deranged I remember there's a little shitty devil in my brain."

Lightness - L seeing through Light's facade in general and wanting inside his head. "Instincts are misleading, you shouldn't think what you're feeling/your brain is the dam and I am the fish who can't reach the core."

Landfill - Light's general emotions toward himself after being outed, as well as toward L in the aftermath of the aftermath chapter. "Don't think about the choices that you made/This is torturous, electricity between both of us. This is dangerous. I want you so much, but I hate your guts."

Love and Truth - This is pretty much an over all theme of the story song. Love and Truth/Hate and Lies. Inspiring Lines: "Is my life not what I thought it would be.They're such hot commodities, but come in such small quantities."

Robotic - Light's thoughts on himself. Inspiring Lines: "If you wanna win, you've gotta play/I wanna be reprogrammed, I wanna be robotic, no more blood in these veins, wanna press reset."

The Breach - L's thoughts on Light, mostly post-heat. "But did I show you love,In the author on my face, ‘Cause you know you left a hollow, Where your body cut an alcove/You happened out the back door, Laying bare this need, You open up this vessel and gather all the quivers that never got to fly."

Fever To The Form - Pretty much the heat chapter. Inspiring Lines: "Cos' the very thing you're afraid, afraid of It keeps you clean but unclear/Is the dirt that you're made, you're made of and that's nothing to fear."

Best Fake Smile - L's thoughts on Light in general. "She's sweating under the lights, yeah, she's beginning to crack/You don't have to wear your best fake smile, you don't have to stand there and burn inside, if you don't like it/You don't have to care, so don't pretend, nobody needs a best fake friend."

Through To You - L's romantic thoughts on Light post aftermath. "You can't keep on living with your verbal masturbation/ I'm gonna make you do the things you never thought you'd do. I'm gonna get through to you/you were giving those cancerous answers
Scandalous dancer, a second glance, a second chance, at romance."


Another Note: I'm looking for roleplay partners. Message me if you're interested.
