because light is my all time favorite character

Okay, can we talk about how amazing this scene is for a second??

So, this is an image of Giorno and Mista during the White Album fight and holy crap I think I might cry. This is absolutely beautiful; The combination of the golden background as well as the sun rising with Giorno carrying Mista is literally eye candy. This scene really shows how much Giorno cares about him; He’s not just holding Mista for the sake of it– He’s holding Mista as if he wants to protect him. It shows how much these two have come together; Mista’s literally evaded death about three times and Giorno’s always been there to back him up. Their friendship is practically oozing out of these panels. (Kind of like the blood from Mista’s multiple bullet wounds)

And we’re not even on the dialogue yet. In case Giorno’s text is too small to read, he says this:

“Mista… Your determination blazes brighter than the rising sun, illuminating our path with its brilliance… We’ll face the light and walk our path onward… Together!

Holy moly… I’m almost in tears; This is fantastic. Giorno’s admiration for Mista is literally pure. Giorno, being the type of person to keep to himself with compliments, praising Mista like this and telling him how they’re going to continue their journey together is so heartwarming. The fact that he uses the sun’s symbolism makes this like, five times better. Comparing Mista’s determination to the blazing sun was perfect because of how accurate it is– Mista continues to stand up and fight multiple times even when he’s on the verge of death. These two, I just– I can’t–

Their friendship is literally the light of my life. Their interaction throughout Vento Aureo was a blessing and I’m so grateful. Am I overanalyzing fictional characters? Definitely. Am I using this panel as an excuse to ship them? Probably. Either way, this has to have been my favorite scene from Vento Aureo just because of how amazing the pictures and dialogue work together. All together, the White Album arc was beautiful.

I really do love the way you color !! Perhaps can u make a tutorial about that? I'm having trouble with coloring my characters and blending.. .

i’m bad at explaining mostly because i have no idea what i’m doin while drawing 8D but i’ll try (with sai)

first of all is basicly the sketch and some basic colors 

after that i like to set up my light source and some shadows. Gives some orientation for later.

before blending smash all layers together to get to painting. Here’s also my favorite brush settings (which i use all the time) 

in the end its just messy and i literally have no idea what i’m doing all the time. Sorry if that won’t help ya so much D: 

My favorite TLOU fics

Thanks for showing interest, guys! I’ve kind of clustered them around certain categories, so you can more easily find what you like.

Joel [Because our favorite man is still shrouded in mystery.]

  • “Dirt” (T; incomplete): This covers the 20 years between the game’s prologue and the actual start of the game, and is told from Tommy’s point of view. Hands down, one of the best TLOU fanfics I’ve come across yet. Don’t let the “incomplete” status scare you off, there’s already 29 LONG chapters of goodness already posted!
  • “Joel, Broken” (T): Joel’s life with Sarah, told in reverse chronological order. I think the author really provides realistic character motivations as she studies what happened between Joel and his ex-wife.
  • “no light, no light” (T): Fatherly torture, beautiful writing.
  • “Curiosity” (M): Even if you don’t usually like reader inserts, give this one a try – the writing is absolutely beautiful, and everything feels so true to Joel’s character.

Tess [Why is it so damn hard to find good Tess fics? Whatever, let me help you out.]

Joel/Tess [Because I make no bones about my OTP.]

Joel & Ellie [Mostly feels-tastic father/daughter stuff.]

  • “on rusted things that had stopped moving” (NR, probably a T for language): The writing in this is just completely beautiful. I dare you to still be breathing right after you read the last line.
  • “landscape” (T): More totally gorgeous writing. The last scene takes my breath away.
  • “Hands” (G): Just a really beautiful meditation on Joel and Ellie’s relationship, told through one short scene.
  • “in the end was it fireflies or lightning bugs and did it really matter” (G): I think this was written before Left Behind came out, so it diverges from canon in terms of Ellie’s sexuality, but I still think it’s beautiful writing.
  • “Flying to Wyoming, Chapter 13: The Feminine Abyss” (M, but this chapter is probably just a T for language): Lots of people have wondered how Ellie deals with her period – so please enjoy Ellie making Joel jimmy open a tampon dispenser. It’s fucking hysterical. (Note: This chapter is part of a much longer Joellie romance. This chapter stands alone and is not romantic at all. Read the rest of the story or not as you will.)

If you really want to cry

AND FINALLY:

Joel/Ellie (Joellie) [-ducks from thrown rocks-]

What’s this? Two uploads from me in two days? It’s like we’ve gone back in time. Haha!

I took a little time last night to draw something just for fun because I hardly get time to actually do that anymore, and usually if I have any time, it goes to Sybal Heim stuff. Which I love, but it means that pretty much all my other OCs have gotten ignored for quite a while now. So I decided to draw my favorite garbage child, Mouse, because he hasn’t really seen the light of day since like… last April. :’D And dang I forgot how much I enjoy drawing this kid. Enough to post both the sketch and the colored image because I like them both individually!

10 Fictional Characters I Would Kiss

I was tagged by @imaginative-neverland and immediately began thinking about why I chose these people. This is exactly why I’m glad it’s summer!

1. Newt(The Maze Runner): For obvious reasons…

2. Peter Pan(Once Upon a Time): He’s only second because Newt holds a special part in my heart.

3. Spot Conlon(1992 Newsies): Childhood crush, even though this movie was released before I was born.

4. Liam Dunbar(Teen Wolf): This is just because he’s physically attractive…

5. Peter Parker(Spiderman): Spiderman is my all time favorite hero(I’m not interesting at all).

6. Oliver Wood(Harry Potter): I wasn’t interested in any of the main characters when I first saw the movie. :-D Only the boy who plays a minor role in the books.

7. Marius Pontmercy(Les Miserables): Okay, okay. This is more because I am a music nerd, less because of actual logic.

8. Percy Jackson(Percy Jackson and the Lighting Thief): a) I ship Percabeth, but I always thought their relationship was rushed and came out of nowhere, and b) that was why I crushed on Percy while I read the books.

9. Barry Allen(The Flash): Look at this puppy!

10. Kile Woodwork(The Heir): There hasn’t been a movie about this book series, but apparently, the fandom decided that this guy is Kile. I have no complaints.

Looking back at my list, I realize that they all look vaguely similar…oh well. I’m tagging @winchester-with-wings @stuck-to-tmr-coz-newt @robbiekaysfavouritelostgirl @booksknowledge15 @slytherinqueenofneverland and @hoe4ham

“Crypt Ticks are HYSTERICAL. After feeding on the flesh of the dead they hunt the living. SUPER FUNNY." 


We’re very close to launch right now and the Character Team, the people who model and animate all the denizens of the Necropolis, are actually content complete. That means every character model and every animation is done and in the game. There’s still plenty to do, bugs come back and there are adjustments to enemy behaviors that require rework of animations (not to mention a new trailer!), but the pressure is off a bit. So I swung by to ask them a simple question, “Who is your favorite character in the Necropolis?”

Fiona Turner (Character Artist): The Gemeater is one of my favorite characters. It was really fun to create concept variants for him (below) because of his comical look. His large head, vacant stare, and reckless attacks contribute to his appeal. I imagine he has a peanut sized brain and has only survived the Necropolis long enough to meet you due to his brawn.


Marian Huber (Character Artist): My favorite critter from Necropolis would have to be the Chemist, our cowardly, bird-brained merchant. It’s always funny when you open up a chest and finding him cowering in there, hiding from the horrors of the maze. He was a blast to work on; It was fun to work out how stylized feathers should look in the world of Necropolis. I love how his animation really sells his bird-like and flighty movements, as well as his salesman attitude.

Jakob Zoepfl (Animator): My favorite character would probably be the Changeling. Mostly because it’s rarely seen and it was super fun to make. It moves very fluidly and it’s long gangly limbs make  for some interesting shapes and poses.

Hollie Mengert (Animator): My favorite character is also the Gemeater! So many things in the Necropolis, are calculating, thoughtful and deadly. But the Gemeater survives by pure brute strength. I love seeing him thunder his way around the Necropolis.

(Hollie would also like to remind us all that, "The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.”)

Steven Rynders (Character Artist/Technical Artist): Shadowborn, they’re creepy, they really cool, and we put a lot of work into them!

Brigittie Tijerina (Animator): My favorite thing in Necropolis is the Eel Trap. Animating it was so fun and its movement reminds me of a dog shaking prey in its mouth. Also, because the lair in which the Eel hides blends with the environment very well, it startles me every time it pops out. Brigittie divides her time between Animation and Quality Assurance, and testers are the unsung heroes of development.

And finally, here’s what happens when you ask Doug Magruder, our Character Team Lead, which is his favorite character in the game:

Doug Magruder (Character Team Lead): Narrowing it down to one “favorite” is like picking a favorite child out of your multitude of available children. It is less that you don’t have a favorite and much more due to the fact that at any given moment your favorite changes. I have moments of each that I love and cherish just as I have aspects of them all that I make me want to toss them screaming into a pit of fire as sacrifices to the god Ar. Every time I see them I not only see what is onscreen but I instantly re-live fragments of all the meetings and discussions surrounding their creation, all the artwork approved and rejected, all the models in their varying state of completion, the animation from scraggy and blocking to polished and gleaming in Maya, and from their broken and mindless ingame states to the final implementation where they finally become a fully realized work that is the sum of all their disparate parts and culmination of all the efforts of each artist’s effort to bring them into this world.

All characters in Necropolis are special to me, from the lowly Rat King and Scrounges whose skittering movement and simple designs are endearing and pleasant (or as pleasant as a 3 headed rat can be) to the Hollowman Brute whose fierce aspect of a monstrous mechanical gorilla is carried brilliantly through his movement and mesh in equal measure. The timid, happy Fade is as charming as the angry, slithering Changeling is to me.

All creatures in this game, even the ones that will never see the light of day, due to reason both inside and outside our realms of control, are at any given moment my favorite.The ability to pick just one is something that is simply not within my ability to do, simply because by the time I finish typing the characters name my favorite will have changed, and changed again once I deleted the texted and started to retype a new name. Don’t ask me to pick a favorite child, it just isn’t fair. All that being said I can say that the character that fills me with the strongest emotions is the Blackguard. It has gone through the most hands, had the most work done to it, the most joy and pain and heartache and triumph are present in that simple player avatar. I see each moment of the game through the eyes and actions of that little avatar. It is my window into Necropolis, and as such, if gun-to-head I had to chose it would be their name that would end up being blurted out. “Blackguard! Please don’t shoot me, I have more characters to make…”

That’s it for now. Next week I want to share what it is like to sit in on a discussion about character polish and what kind of considerations we talk about when discussing how to make sure fighting our enemies is fun.

anonymous asked:

I saw your ask post about Symmetra and Vishkar, and it just makes me sad that she's not talked about more? Like, she is so underrated

i do think that out of all the overwatch ladies she does receive the least attention, which is a shame because she’s one of my favorite characters and i find her so /interesting/. the fact that she’s following vishkar’s orders because she wants to contribute to helping others out just like vishkar helped /her/ out by giving her the power to use hard light technology (something that made her feel better about herself, and it’s clear she’s very proud of her skill with it) while realizing that said orders can be questionable at times and having this inner conflict with herself is so darn intriguing to me! symmetra has probably always felt alone and out of place for being ‘different’ as she says herself in the comic, but vishkar made her feel special (they call her their ‘finest, most talented’ hard light engineer) and how can you go against the organization that helped you from when you were a child and made you feel like you were doing something for the good of everyone? in the comic, even after the little girl’s face is burned, she /still/ tries to convince herself vishkar is doing good. i guess the real question is how far she’s willing to go to ensure that the world becomes a better place, or vishkar’s version of a better place.

anonymous asked:

which House of Cards season is your favorite?

Many spoilers ahead, so read at your own peril. 

Argh!! Don’t make me choose!

But if I have to choose one to spend the rest of my life with on a desert island, I choose Season 1. Because it’s perfect. It might be the most perfect *season* of television I’ve ever seen. The story, pacing, lighting, production values, costumes, sets, music, characters, acting, directing…everything about it captivates me each time I watch it. Yes, I’ve seen every episode an embarrassing amount of times. I was enthralled from Kevin’s very first entrance. I was watching with friends, all cozy on the couch with a glass of cheap wine, when he came busting out that door in his crisp white shirt and suspenders like fucking Cary Grant - and then he strangled the dog as HE WAS BREAKING THE FOURTH WALL telling us why it had to be done - and the hairs on the back of my neck went “whoa…hello! What’s this I’m watching? Must watch more…” The thirst was real. 

Season 2 is right up there. As a matter of fact, for me, Season 1 and 2 might as well just be one 26 episode season. I don’t mind saying that if the series had ended after Chapter 26, with Frank banging his ring on the desk in the oval, I would have been completely satisfied. That ring bang was epic. And perfect. Mission accomplished. Wrap it up and put a bow on it. I’m glad it didn’t end of course, but I would have been okay if it had.  

Season 3 is the problem child for me. It was very uneven, IMHO, although it wasn’t without some spectacular scenes and some very good episodes. Chapter 33 in particular was outstanding. But overall I felt there was too much time spent on secondary characters (I’m looking at you Tom Yates and Kate Baldwin in bed…a lot.) Mercifully the Rachel/Doug storyline was finally buried ;) Love you, you batshit crazy Stamper, but it needed to end. I love Claire because she’s such a magnificent, elegant, enigma; but christ on a cracker she drove me crazy in Season 3. I call it the *season of Claire’s discontent.* I empathized with Frank’s utter bewilderment when he was asking her “WHAT DO YOU WANT??” Claire seemed oddly emotional at the worst times, and Frank was uncharacteristically petulant and impotent much of the season. He was so good at harnessing his considerable skill and power in congress and as Vice-President, but as President he was mostly relegated to lashing out at people, being toyed with by Petrov, drinking too much with Tom, or wondering what the fuck is going on with Claire.  Not that Kevin and Robin weren’t compelling and masterful as always, it’s just that the entire season felt very different, even distant, from the first two. Apart. Although looking backward, this may well have been absolutely intentional on the part of Beau Willimon and TPTB, because…

Season 4 was a revelation and I now see season 3 in a whole new light, and with a much greater appreciation. As a matter of fact, I’ve enjoyed watching Season 3 again, because in retrospect, Claire in particular makes much more sense. We finally come to understand in Season 4 just how ambitious she really is, and why she was so dissatisfied and restless in Season 3. Season 4 is Claire’s coming out party. I will admit that I was worried that after Frank and Claire basically assaulted each other in Chapter 39 (she demanded he fuck her and when a startled Frank said no he was busy, she smacked him across the face, and then later in the oval he grabbed her by throat) I was hard pressed to imagine how we would ever see Frank and Claire together again in any sort of believable way. But Beau and team did it. Fuck yeah they did it. And it was glorious.   

God, I love this show.

Apparently I’m not done, so here’s the thing, the beauty of the couples in BMW was that Topanga and Cory were idealistic and perfect and it was balanced out by Shawn and Angela who were imperfect and realistic. Cory and Topanga ended up together and you talk about how rare and special that is, your entire concept behind this pairing is that they were made for each other and you glorify the idealistic pie in the sky notion of these two being sweethearts from pampers until adult diapers. But the idea of Shawn and Angela being a couple or rekindling their romance is “unrealistic”? How? When your show revolved around a less than realistic couple? Shawn and Angela were very realistic, which was necessary to counter Topanga and Cory. So which is it? Because Not everyone marries their high school sweetheart. And 4 ½ years of dating someone doesn’t typically end up in marriage. But Angela wasn’t just Shawn’s hs sweetheart. They were also college sweethearts. So it’s more like 6 years. It’s not terribly unrealistic that people who dated in college, which is when your adult relationships really begin, could end up together again.

Shawn Hunter is never meant to be happy. Fair enough, but stop rewriting canon in order to sink a ship. Because in rewriting that you’re taking the only main poc character from a classic show and you’re painting her in a negative light and actively undoing all the positive things that made her one of the pinnacle characters of representation in a teen show of that time just to…what? Give Shawn more pain and further some other juvenile storyline? Honestly they don’t have to be together but don’t drag Angela, and rewrite canon for the hell of it, just because you can.

Do you know how offensive that is? As far as representation goes, Angela Moore was one of my favorite characters from my childhood/adolescence. I saw a girl who could be fine in her own skin and have her own culture and still hang out with her white friends and it not be an issue. She cracked jokes, but her race was never a focus. She dated the resident “hot guy” of the show. That was the first time I ever saw a girl with skin like mine actually date the hot guy that all the girls wanted, instead of just being the sassy black friend who no one ever seemed to pine after. Do you know how amazing it is to be able to self-insert as young girls are bound to do when daydreaming about the characters they had crushes on in their favorite shows? As a WOC I can tell you that rarely happened for me as a teen and I’m just now able to do that now. Or how about the fact that interracial relationships were viewed as normal, so for once it wasn’t “weird” to express interest in people, anyone, who wasn’t the same race as you.

This isn’t just about the interracial dating though. What about the friendship? So it’s equally unrealistic that people remain friends from high school onward? But it’s not too farfetched that Cory, Topanga, and Shawn have been best friends from infancy? For years Angela Moore was the only non male friend Topanga was ever shown as having. She was in fact her best friend, and we’re supposed to just accept that they never spoke again after the BMW finale? She didn’t show up for the kids being born? They didn’t even know who she was and she hadn’t been mentioned. Do I seriously need to go into the problematic nature of this erasure? They did two entire episodes dedicated to the newbies versus oldies, us versus them friendships pitting Cory, Topanga, and Shawn against Angela, Rachel, and Jack which resulted in some kumbaya hug fest, but someone thought it was okay to dropkick that canon and the lesson that went with it out of the window for…what exactly? Because friends fall out of touch, despite the fact that the connections and friendships you make in college typically sticking better than those in hs and younger but whatever let’s ignore that too because reality. On a fictional show that’s a ham sandwich with extra cheese.

Angela was Topanga’s best friend. She was one of Cory’s closest friends. How are we just erasing that, because the writers want to play around with angsty storylines? Why must it be at Angela’s expense? Stop cherry - picking what and when you want to be “realistic.” Because many of us were happy at the idea of bringing back old characters but if it meant screwing with some of them this way, I’d have rather they didn’t. They could have left well enough alone.

*cups your face in both hands and gets uncomfortably close* GIVE ME DEATH NOTE FIC RECS PLEASE@!

ASK AND YE SHALL RECEIVE (ps these are all Lawlight fics since that is what I am assuming you want, but if you’d like Gen or you want to sail other ships you just let me know <3 )

I am going to go ahead and take this as an opportunity to make a whole list of fics I adore, and to give shoutouts to the wonderful writers of this fandom. Thank you so much! (Listed in alphabetical order because why not.) So without, further ado,

~~~MY DEATH NOTE LAWLIGHT FIC REC POST~~~

—–COMPLETE:

Chocolate Always Loves You Back by tierfal

Light Yagami is not having a good Valentine’s Day. Between the new guy with the candy fetish, his partner, Matsuda, and the unsettling new case… the chocolate may be the only thing that loves him at all. Light/L. (Word count: 41,711 )  

This fic is so cute. I’m pretty sure I got cavities. Tierfal is a wonderful writer, and incredibly engaging with both her plot and her characterizations. This was a blast to read, and I highly recommend that you read her others works. You can find her on Ao3 as well, though she has moved onto RoyEd fics. If you are like me, however, that is hardly a problem, and YOU OUGHT TO GO READ THEM because they are wonderful and very, ahem, hot.  

Change of Circumstance by wordbombs

(Word count: 8,351) Sometimes all happiness takes is a change of circumstances. L/Light, fluffly lemon meringue AU one-shot. Answers- What if Light was a Wammy? 

Also very cute. A nice little ‘what if’ scenario with no angst, and I thought it was rather well-done.

PITCH by uberneko-zero

(Word count: 257,928)  L is a reclusive detective who takes his job seriously. Too seriously, in fact. Once he takes note of how neglected and stagnant his life truly is, he decides to make some changes. Challenges arise through an unanticipated meeting. AU

To be honest, it’s been a while since I’ve read this, but I remember liking it A LOT when I went through it the first time. The author’s writing style is very unique and quite memorable, so I’d suggest it. Plus shenanigans. 

The Life and Time of Genius Detective L Lawliet & Repentant Murder Light Yagami by mellodear

(Word count:  37,985)  L manages to outwit Kira!Light but chooses not to have him executed. Instead, and because Light has no memory of having used the Death Note, he decides to help him redeem himself. Oh, and they fall in love somewhere along the way. Years later, a biography about them is published and it’s a best-seller. Here is why.

aslkfjasdfjsfljfljhglkdfblnfg. This fic. THIS FIC. I really wish I could succinctly describe how much I love this fic and how amazing it is but I will, sadly, fall short. It is literally one of my favorite fanfictions of all time, and I have read a LOT. Its just so very true to the characters, and does an excellent job as portraying L and Light not just as caricatures, but as human beings…. I just. Blah. Words. I feel dumb. Go read it, and it will speak for itself. Warning: be prepared for an onslaught of feels. You will not leave without battle scars on your heart. 

——ONGOING:

And Indeed There Will Be a Time by lawlietismyfavorite

(Word count:  26,753)  An alternate universe in which humans grow until the age of eighteen, and then are frozen in time until they find their soulmates, or “One.”

Aaaaaaah I love this fic so much!!! Light has not entered the scene yet (though its been promised), but the writing is just so lovely and out of this world. Its a fascinating premise, and Sara does a wonderful job executing it with style and gusto. It will tug on your heart strings, and I can’t wait to see where it goes.

Our Bodies, Possessed by Light by mellodear

(Word count:  57,957)  L. Lawliet is a gifted photographer who believes he has understood the light and its secrets. Light Yagami is a young, narcissistic and slightly crooked model. Together, they kill time.

Yes, she is on the list again, because I love her writing so much and it absolutely killed me to limit myself to two of her stories. This is another example of her excellent characterization; keeping true to Light and L (and all their long-suffering companions) even in a different world and different professions. Its wonderful to read (her writing style is very evocative, and its so easy to see and feel everything that is going on), and quite fun as well. Go poke through her Ao3 account, there are literal goldmines there. You will find feels and angst and you’ll cry but it will be worth it.

Primitive Liars by nilah-xapiel

(Word count:  76,786 - also available on fanfiction.net) Light is a being of intellect, not of instinct. He tells himself this to the point of nausea, until his vision blurs and his hands shake.(Omegaverse AU.) Eventual LxLight.

I’ll be honest, I was a little hesitant getting into this because Omegaverse is really NOT my deal, but I read the first chapter and got hooked. The Alpha/Beta/Omega dynamics and their affect on society (and ergo the characters) are examined closely and very well-explained, and more importantly, BELIEVABLE. It is handled respectfully and delicately while also not holding any punches. If that makes sense…. and also, the more intimate scenes are very… ahem, titillating, you could say. <3 Or, in other words, hot DAMN those scenes are steamy.

Stories About Stars by lawlietismyfavorite

(Word count:  55,794) College!AU: What would happen if Light Yagami had found the Death Note after he already started university? After he had already fallen in love with L?

Yes, she’s here again, I just adore her writing style so much. I said out of this world earlier and I should have saved it for this story (because ahaha star puns), but seriously this story has just a touch of the mystical and its reflected in the writing. The story is both wonderful and heartbreaking, and I’m seriously worried for how my poor soul is going to fare as we get farther along.

Those Who Stand For Nothing Fall for Anything by youcannotrelight

(Word count:  645,540 - also available on Ao3 in multiple parts under the name The Hinterland Doctrine)  Light is a politician. What could go wrong?

Okay, do not be intimidated by the length. It is so. Very. Worth it. I LOVE THIS FIC SO MUCH I READ THROUGH IT IN THE PERIOD OF TWO DAYS. During FINALS week. That is how much I love this fic. Everybody is an asshole and everybody is so problematic, and there are SERIOUSLY dubious ethics and morals at play here (which the author disclaims ahead of time), but my God it is fun to read. It’ll tug on your heart at the strangest of times, and you’ll get emotional whiplash from how quickly you’ll switch from going “awww poor bby” to cussing them out while wanting to strangle them. *shrugs* It’s first person, so it threw me off at first, but its wonderfully done, and you should definitely give it a try.

—-HASN’T UPDATED IN A VERY LONG TIME:

Coexistence is Boredom by Sakurazukamori6 

(Word count:  232,973)  A new deathnote. A new plan for world sanctity. And an entirely misled Catholic clergy. Raito and L take their respective places on the sides of their own justice. A final battle waged in the Garden of Eden. LRaitoL. For a Brief Moment.

To be honest this is the fic I thought of when I was reading warpedchyld‘s tags. She’ll know what I mean. But its wonderfully written and presents an interesting dynamic between L and Light. Its both cute and hot, and you’ll definitely get frustrated (in more way than one *insert obnoxious winky face* while reading it). Its been a while since I’ve read it all the way through, but I remember it fondly. Definitely give it a shot. Its not complete, though, and I’m not sure if it ever will be.

Nights by youremyqueen

(Word count:  352,693  - also available on fanfiction.net)  L imprisons Light and then Light imprisons L and then L imprisons Light again. Sometimes they have sex, too. [ADDING FROM THE AUTHOR’S NOTES BECAUSE I FIND IT NECESSARY] The actual summary is something like: L has sex with everyone, FOR JUSTICE. Except with lots of angsty monologuing. I kind of don’t know what I’m doing here, so bare with me, kids.

This fic is not for the faint of heart. I didn’t get into it initially because, frankly, its tags scared me off. But then I trudged into it and found it to my liking. Though maybe I’m just a sucker for the way she writes L. If you read it, you’ll know what I mean. Some seriously questionable stuff occurs and I’m not sure its addressed in a particularly appropriate manner, so give yourself a heads up ahead of time. Its been a while since I’ve read it, but I do go back to it occasionally.

(Honestly everyone should check out ALL of the works of these writers, but I am going to be ~chill~ and only post one or two stories for each otherwise this would have been much longer than it needed to be. Though it is much shorter than I was expecting. Maybe I’ve gotten pickier? Its probably because I have only been in this fandom for about six months, and I still have bookmarks upon bookmarks of fics I’m still trying to get through.)

warpedchyld I’m so sorry this took so long, but it took me a long time to comb through all my bookmarks and favorites on Ao3 AND fanfiction.net. I hope you enjoy these!!! They are all favorites of mine!!! <33
