    Bookmarker's Notes

    excellent subversion of Light's thinking he's a genius and stopping the apparent epic-ness of L and Light's genius "battle of wits". Light is just an overconfident evil kid with a god complex who can't stand to have his morality challenged, and it's not epic, it's a bloodbath . Light's not special; L's not special; and again and most importantly, Light's not special. He is a genius, but that's not the point.

    (I mean the story here is epic, but the battle of wits is not what makes it epic. So it does not become a massive nerd-boy superiority contest.)

    Summary

    They told Naomi Misora she was dead for three minutes when paramedics revived her. She sure didn't feel alive. She couldn't even remember coming back to Japan, much less Kira taking her fiance, much less Kira sending her to suicide, maiming her and robbing her brain of speech. She had almost given up hope of recovery until a mysterious figure gave the promise of revenge: the chance to kill those who wronged her, if only she can find them.

    Aphasic and adrift, Naomi's going to join the Kira investigation to win her life back. She's going to help Misa Amane discover who she is, and discover a connection with her. She's going to make Light Yagami have to think on his feet, and present him with a new opportunity. She's going to solve some serious problems for L, and then make some serious problems for L. And she's going to make a hell of a lot of things get a lot more complicated.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I am in awe. This was is fantastic, brilliant, amazing, the hands down best Death Note fic I have read, orders of magnitude better than canon at least in terms of not being a bunch of toxic masculinity bullshit overly focused on the "intellectual battle" between L and Light, the kind of fic that elevates fandom and fanfics as an art form i.e. the sort of fic I think about when I say that some fanfic is *better* than published books I've read. I think I also described this fic as "groundbreaking" as I was reading it, and it is.
