Comment on The Other Half of Me

  1. Yes of course I loved this, although I wanted Light to punch L in the face and push him off the roof at first for hurting Light enough he had to use concealer to cover the bruises. Really, the gall of bruising perfect Kira. But then I saw it was B and of course B can get away with much more in my (sadly not lethal) book. XD

    I love it when Kira gets everything, and here he’s getting both L and B and his perfect world and I’m just a happy ZJ ^^

    Looking forward to the next part!

    1. Also not bruising perfect Kira to be fair he's battering woobie yotsuba arc light when he's not kira, not being kira being as good a reason for b to be peeved as any :) next part is literally birthday present and only half done, so i'm eilling to see if i can incorporate any prompt that comes in over the next hour or so ;)

      1. “woobie yotsuba arc light when he's not kira”

        It is my twisted but necessary headcanon that there was never never a time Light was not Kira. I much prefer that the death note only gave Light the (magical! mystical!) means to do what he wanted to do, be what he really was all along. I suppose this comes from the divide of...are sociopaths born or made...and I’m in the former camp although believe the latter can certainly happen (like my feelings about B in CM, that he was twisted by Tadashi vs L wasn’t). I want Kira to just be it, perfect life/childhood/no troubles, there was nothing to make him kill. He actually can be a god and just likes it.

        As for the next chap, I’m not sure if that was you way of asking me to prompt you but I’ll just assume it is cause I want to. (But feel free to disregard any and all I’m sure I’ll love it). Light should surely punish B for hurting him as L, no way Kira would let that slide even for someone he wanted as bad as B. I suppose he got a little punishment with that dry fuck but really he was having too much fun for it to be real punishment. XD And I wonder if Light would truly see B/L as an equal or someone to dominate/win against like L. Does B’s perfect world equate Light’s? Light wants to kill criminals but canonB just wants to kill for fun. B would be the kind of person Kira would kill so...I want to know why Kira is making a exception for B. Maybe Light just likes to kill too..like B...and choosing criminals was his way of maintaining some socially-acceptable gameface to reap the world’s praise and adoration for Kira.

        2. canonB just wants to kill for fun.

          As much as i like this idea and use it in fic, i'm not actually convinced this is true. In LABB B has some thought about only killing people when they are due to die anyway and Mello talks about it being a competition and not about the kills. All actions he takes are calculated to best L not have fun... canon B is probably a lot nicer than we who adore him give him credit for! Though that's irrelevant for this fic anyway since B's a violent little shite in this one anyway :)

          1. Yes I agree with that about B, and thought about it more after I typed that.
            That in LABB murders (which I only read once and rather quickly just for background info on him for CM), his purpose was to create a case to stump L and prove a point—he was superior to L. Whether or not he enjoyed it, I suppose much is left to the reader to decide and Mello is the very definition of unreliable narrator. So to me, B had quite a few options at his disposal to prove his point of being superior to L (like solve actual cases? naw lol)...and he picked the approach he’d enjoy best. That also suggests to me that his goal wasn’t just to stump L, but to horrify and punish him. Horrify by the methods and doing the very thing L is trying to stop, punish him via B’s suicide because of what B had (presumably) meant to L at one time. And no longer did

            1. This is why B provides such a versatile character in the fandom though; whilst others have well defined roles, B can be the wild card and can be written in any way you like.

              1. Ha well any character can be written any way you like if it’s written well. We’d all just read the manga again (which I have yet to read at all oops) if we wanted canon. I think my favorite fics and those I consider innovative take the character’s bones and give them new flesh, new insights that capture an essence vs repeat their actions exactly. I like your writing for that reason, among others.
