    Summary

    Ten months ago, high-school graduate and beloved girlfriend Jane Moreaux had disappeared from her home without any trace to where she went. Her phone screen was smashed and many of her personal items including clothes and photographs vanished along with her. Deemed dead after two months of investigating, everyone went about their lives as if nothing had occurred...but those close to her wanted justice, a proper investigation. Closure. No body was found, not even a single strand of DNA found anywhere.

    And then Kira came along, unsuspecting to the detective looking to prove his guilt. This serial killer had some sort of motive and due to how recent it was, infamous detective L knew somewhere in his mind that they were linked in addition to a case of his past. Unsure of how quite yet, but he was determined that they were.

    Jane Moreaux, strung in the middle of this all somehow. A woman waiting to be found.

    This series is consistent with adult language, some mature themes, etc. Read with care as some sensitive themes (i.e - kidnap, toxic relationships, etc.) may be covered in these series' so handle with care if that may upset you.

    Summary

    The following story is not mine. Its author is nucifera and was translated to English with the author's permission.

    "– So you confess. You're Kira.
    – We don't need to make such a fuss about it. I'm still Light. I still want to work with you by my side, L. I want you. Let's build a new world together.
    - You've completely lost your mind. "

    Light Yagami is a smart student who finds a notebook capable of killing people whose names and faces are known by the owner of it. With it, the young genius believes that he has, in his hands, a mission to be accomplished: whatever it costs, he will clean the planet of rot and reign over it- the God of the new world!
    However, a rock appears across his path: a detective enters the student's way, and Light Yagami's world is shaken, causing his perfect and ideal plan to falter.

The game changes when another orphan appears, completely disassembling Kira’s new world. With all the Wammy children’s eyes on Light, they pose the question: Is Light really Kira?

    Summary

    In December of 2006, five of the top-performing students of the Wammy House for Gifted Children are asked to bug the office of their headmaster, the ever-disgruntled Roger Ruvie, for reasons even they can't name.

    Not a single one of them leaves that office the same as when they first entered.

    And least of all Hikaru Yamaji, known to his peers as Light.

    One week later, secrets are spilled, and the five students are in Tokyo, trying their hardest to capture what their mentor has publicly referred to as "the most atrocious murderer of all-time." And with an increasingly secretive girlfriend, the promise of a god of a new world yet to come, and a priestess dressed in white and red, Light, the son of two criminals sentenced to death, has to give his all just to keep himself sane.

    Or die trying.

    [Don't be intimidated by the number of chapters... there's a document placed between every actual chapter, supposed to represent something significant to the investigation, so it looks twice as long as it really is.]

    Summary

    USED TO BE CALLED IZUKU'S DIARY

    My hero academia death note AU where deku finds the death note and never inherits one for all -- i dont want to say much because i have a lot planned for this story and i dont want to spoil anything!
    ALSO
    yes there are ships but i didn't want to put them all in the tags because they're mostly slowburn and once again i didn't want to spoil

    ((one more thing I want to point out!!! although this fic has the same premise as death note in the sense that the main character ends up possessing a death note and so forth the actual plot is very different so it won't just be a repeat of death note but with different characters it'll actually be its own story kinda so yeah anyway fanks))

    Summary

    L and the task force forgot one not-so-tiny detail while going through with the mock execution: blanks fired in close range are extremely dangerous. Miraculously, Light manages to survive nonetheless, but in the process loses his vision and most of his hearing.

    L finds himself in a moral debate. Kira might be defeated if Light remains blind forever, but what if Light is innocent? Then shouldn't he do anything he can to help his friend recover? He doesn't know, because while Light seems innocent without memories, Kira was bound to have had a plan to recover that power.

    Navigating a new life with his main motivation being a fiery rage towards Kira, Light takes advantage of every loophole he can find to assist in the case regardless of his disabilities. But as the case winds to a close and no progress has been made in his eyes healing, he begins to fear everything he had ever worked for was for nothing.

    Unbeknownst to him, his plan as Kira has crashed and burned. How do you use the Death Note when you can't see someone's face? Eventually, a Shinigami will offer him the eye deal, which will repair his vision, but at the cost of half his lifespan. Will he take the deal?

    "Tiri." Shit, shit. Why did I offer THAT name as an alias? I can't think about Lord of the Rings right now!
    True to his nature, L knew immediately that it was an alias.
    But I couldn't tell him my real name, not with Light right there.

    ***

    "What ARE you?" Rem hovered over me threateningly, demanding an answer.
    Could she not see my name floating above my head?
    Ryuk laughed, clearly amused that Rem felt threatened by a human.
