Anything by [[http://www.fanfiction.net/~WallOfIllusion Wall of Illusion]]
* Recommended by @/{{DomaDoma}}
* Wall of Illusion writes some of the most eloquent and generally awesome ''Manga/DeathNote'' gen I've ever seen, with a concentration on the next-gen arc. (The ''ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents'' crossover didn't pan out so well, though, and is a DeadFic besides.)

Anything by [[http://www.fanfiction.net/~Mikanis Mikanis]]
* Recommended by aimsme
* Eloquent, beautiful and intellectual. The first fic of hers I ever read was the magnificent ''Of Music'', and she's never since let me down.

Anything by [[http://www.fanfiction.net/~SilverPard Silver Pard]]
* Recommended by chibiaries, [=KrisMahai=], spica, and {{@/Ellamew}}
* Her Death Note fics flow like poetry; I especially encourage reading [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4107092/1/12_Moves_Sideways "12 Moves Sideways"]] the best Harry Potter/Death Note crossover I have ever read, and [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4182475/1/Redivivus "Redivivus"]] is very amusing, suspenseful, and full of dark humor. The side stories for Redivius, [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4627593/1/The_Slow_Path_of_Rehabilitation "The Slow Path of Rehabilitation"]] has a nine-year old Reincarnated!Light set loose on Japan, and L is...just L. I especially loved the chapter where Light [[HilarityEnsues owes Ryuk a dare]].
** Seconded by feral, I'd recommend [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4705891/1/Apples_Equals_Cyanide_Equals_Light "Apples Equals Cyanide Equals Light"]] if you're in the mood for RevengeFic.

Anything by [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/24626/keem Keem]]
* Recommended by @/ClandestineClear, seconded by Hijikimeosae
* Her writing is just excellent, with a flawless style that matches the atmosphere of Manga/DeathNote perfectly. I am convinced that she could write something about Light turning into a unicorn and still make it work wonderfully well.

Anything by [[http://www.fanfiction.net/~RobinRocks Robin Rocks]]
* Recommended by Tazzatron, @/{{Ellamew}}
* Her most famous fanfiction, ''Poison Apple'', is possibly the best written story in the entire fandom. Words cannot describe how amazing it is.

* Amazing. She has some of the best fics, especially Light exploration, on the site.

Anything by [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1066534/Bialy Bialy]]
* Recommended by @/{{Bookhobbit}}
* She has a lot of wonderful Matsuda fics, probably some of the best I've ever seen. There's some extremely good Mello-centric fics, a couple focusing on Matt, Near, or L, and a lot of really good stuff for the SPK. She also has some Mello/Sayu and Mello/Halle, along with a couple L/Light, although the recommender has read none of these.

Anything by [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/488469/Translucent_Darkness Translucent Darkness]]
* Recommended by Marlee Cross
* She has a very wide range and can go from hilarious ( [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4262696/1/Peter_Answers_dot_com Peter Answers dot com]] ) to disturbing ( [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5185996/1/Palindrome Palindrome]] ) to hilarious AND disturbing ( [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4299116/1/Exsanguination Exsanguination]] ).

Anything by [[http://www.fanfiction.net/~rinnakun Rinna-kun]]
* Recommended by Socially Disoriented
* She doesn't post on ff.net anymore, but hot damn. This troper is completely in love with that beautiful, understated writing style of hers. Major warnings though, for those of you who don't like slash, as most (but not all) of her fics are Mello/Near-centric. It's tasteful, though. Promise.

Anything by [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1391116/ Bloodshot Eyes]]
* Recommended by Aramisa.
* This writer knows the material she's working with and writes some of the darkest Death Note fics you'll find out there, wich is fine since this is, again, Death Note.

Anything by [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/2025645/ Sashocirrione]]
* Recommended by Ruin Takada, feral
* This author is skilled, articulate, and ever so, ever so deranged. If she isn't writing about your usual Death Note pairings, she's writing about the weirdest, crackiest crack pairings you probably never thought of (e.g. LxRem). Her humour is hilarious, and her angst is hair-tearingly good. Aside from that, she has a soft spot for weird pairings, fluffy endings, graphic sex-scenes and the reviews she receives often go along the lines of "You warned me it was gross, but I just didn't listen, and wow was it ever gross."

Anything by [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1366525/Disguise_of_Carnivorism Disguise of Carnivorism]]
* Recommended by feral
* A very talented author who writes truly beautiful prose that you would expect to find in high-end literature [[SturgeonsLaw rather than on]] [[FanFictionDotNet FanFiction.net]]. This author focuses on Light-exploration and DarkFic and never forgets that that Light is very '''''nuts.'''''

The Redeemer Series by [[http://anime.adultfanfiction.net/authors.php?no=1296867228 CocoaCoveredGods]]
* Recommended by aimsme, {{Pepper-Jak}}
* Pairings: L/Light and Mello/Light, with Mello/Matt on the side and [[spoiler: L/BB, Light/BB, OC/OC, L/Linda, L/BB/Light]]
* Alright, so the spelling and grammar is less than perfect, the TraumaCongaLine starts to get somewhat gratuitous around the second fic, and the amount of sex is gratuitous almost from the get-go, but as far as plotting is concerned this is a seriously amazing set of fics. It's also got gloriously messed-up character dynamics and fast pacing, not to mention the feat of epicness that is writing 5+ novel length fics. If you have the time, it's well worth a read.
** Words cannot possibly describe how much [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Tropers/Pepper-Jak This Troper]] loves this story. These are the absolute best Death Note fics I have ever read. The characters are so much deeper and better developed than in canon, and although many of them may seem OOC at first glance, it works really well (and all the characters come out being incredibly awesome). Light is still manipulative, but is covering how vulnerable he is after his defeat. L is portrayed as a strong, but damaged and eccentric BadAss (much more emphasis is put on the BadAss than in canon). The twists and turns of the plot are amazing and incredibly well planned, and the authors have done a lot of research on various subjects. The characters evolve in realistic ways. While some parts tend to get draggy, especially in the first story, tension is maintained almost constantly, with complex mind games and life or death situations constantly in action. The second story brings in horror and mystery with the appearance of [[spoiler: Beyond Birthday and his twisted relationship with L.]] The interactions between the characters are beautiful and sometimes heartbreaking. The authors flesh out the setting, especially the workings of Wammy House, and their original characters are actually likable and 3 dimensional. Also, Near is not a nice person in these stories, so Near lovers beware.
*** Now has a spin off story for one of the OCs that is almost as amazing as the main stories, and will be integral for any future developments in the series proper.

Anything by [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/2502760/oursolemnhour49 oursolemnhour49]]
* Recommended by whiteladydragon 00
* A fan fiction writer relatively new to the Death Note fandom, her roster is an impressive mix of unassuming but witty humor and satire, and deep, thoughtful exploration of the characters and themes that may have been skimped on in the canon series. One of her oneshots, ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7255404/1/Breaking_The_Fourth_Wall Breaking The Fourth Wall]]'', for instance, is a collection of letters written by most of the DN cast addressing the fandom at large…specifically what they think about how they’re handled in fan fiction. On the more serious side, you have ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7322153/1/A_Shingamis_Justice A Shinigami’s Justice]]'', which concerns a conversation between L and Rem on the subject of justice [[spoiler: just before she kills him and herself]], and ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7777860/1/A_Beautiful_Way_To_Kill A Beautiful Way To Kill]]'', which is about an exchange between Rem and Misa that expounds on Misa’s belief that to die or kill out of love is a beautiful way to go. But these are just three of her fanfics; the rest of them will not disappoint, either.

* Recommended by @/{{DomaDoma}}
* Wall of Illusion writes some of the most eloquent and generally awesome ''Manga/DeathNote'' gen I've ever seen, with a concentration on the next-gen arc. (The ''ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents'' crossover didn't pan out so well, though, and is a DeadFic besides.)

* Eloquent, beautiful and intellectual. The first fic of hers I ever read was the magnificent ''Of Music'', and she's never since let me down.

Anything by [[http://www.fanfiction.net/~SilverPard Silver Pard]]
* Recommended by chibiaries, [=KrisMahai=], spica, and {{@/Ellamew}}
* Her Death Note fics flow like poetry; I especially encourage reading [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4107092/1/12_Moves_Sideways "12 Moves Sideways"]] the best Harry Potter/Death Note crossover I have ever read, and [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4182475/1/Redivivus "Redivivus"]] is very amusing, suspenseful, and full of dark humor. The side stories for Redivius, [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4627593/1/The_Slow_Path_of_Rehabilitation "The Slow Path of Rehabilitation"]] has a nine-year old Reincarnated!Light set loose on Japan, and L is...just L. I especially loved the chapter where Light [[HilarityEnsues owes Ryuk a dare]].
** Seconded by feral, I'd recommend [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4705891/1/Apples_Equals_Cyanide_Equals_Light "Apples Equals Cyanide Equals Light"]] if you're in the mood for RevengeFic.

* Recommended by @/ClandestineClear, seconded by Hijikimeosae
* Her writing is just excellent, with a flawless style that matches the atmosphere of Manga/DeathNote perfectly. I am convinced that she could write something about Light turning into a unicorn and still make it work wonderfully well.

Anything by [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1066534/Bialy Bialy]]
* Recommended by @/{{Bookhobbit}}
* She has a lot of wonderful Matsuda fics, probably some of the best I've ever seen. There's some extremely good Mello-centric fics, a couple focusing on Matt, Near, or L, and a lot of really good stuff for the SPK. She also has some Mello/Sayu and Mello/Halle, along with a couple L/Light, although the recommender has read none of these.

* She doesn't post on ff.net anymore, but hot damn. This troper is completely in love with that beautiful, understated writing style of hers. Major warnings though, for those of you who don't like slash, as most (but not all) of her fics are Mello/Near-centric. It's tasteful, though. Promise.

* This writer knows the material she's working with and writes some of the darkest Death Note fics you'll find out there, wich is fine since this is, again, Death Note.

Anything by [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/2025645/ Sashocirrione]]
* Recommended by Ruin Takada, feral
* This author is skilled, articulate, and ever so, ever so deranged. If she isn't writing about your usual Death Note pairings, she's writing about the weirdest, crackiest crack pairings you probably never thought of (e.g. LxRem). Her humour is hilarious, and her angst is hair-tearingly good. Aside from that, she has a soft spot for weird pairings, fluffy endings, graphic sex-scenes and the reviews she receives often go along the lines of "You warned me it was gross, but I just didn't listen, and wow was it ever gross."

Anything by [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1366525/Disguise_of_Carnivorism Disguise of Carnivorism]]
* Recommended by feral
* A very talented author who writes truly beautiful prose that you would expect to find in high-end literature [[SturgeonsLaw rather than on]] [[FanFictionDotNet FanFiction.net]]. This author focuses on Light-exploration and DarkFic and never forgets that that Light is very '''''nuts.'''''

The Redeemer Series by [[http://anime.adultfanfiction.net/authors.php?no=1296867228 CocoaCoveredGods]]
* Recommended by aimsme, {{Pepper-Jak}}
* Pairings: L/Light and Mello/Light, with Mello/Matt on the side and [[spoiler: L/BB, Light/BB, OC/OC, L/Linda, L/BB/Light]]
* Alright, so the spelling and grammar is less than perfect, the TraumaCongaLine starts to get somewhat gratuitous around the second fic, and the amount of sex is gratuitous almost from the get-go, but as far as plotting is concerned this is a seriously amazing set of fics. It's also got gloriously messed-up character dynamics and fast pacing, not to mention the feat of epicness that is writing 5+ novel length fics. If you have the time, it's well worth a read.
** Words cannot possibly describe how much [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Tropers/Pepper-Jak This Troper]] loves this story. These are the absolute best Death Note fics I have ever read. The characters are so much deeper and better developed than in canon, and although many of them may seem OOC at first glance, it works really well (and all the characters come out being incredibly awesome). Light is still manipulative, but is covering how vulnerable he is after his defeat. L is portrayed as a strong, but damaged and eccentric BadAss (much more emphasis is put on the BadAss than in canon). The twists and turns of the plot are amazing and incredibly well planned, and the authors have done a lot of research on various subjects. The characters evolve in realistic ways. While some parts tend to get draggy, especially in the first story, tension is maintained almost constantly, with complex mind games and life or death situations constantly in action. The second story brings in horror and mystery with the appearance of [[spoiler: Beyond Birthday and his twisted relationship with L.]] The interactions between the characters are beautiful and sometimes heartbreaking. The authors flesh out the setting, especially the workings of Wammy House, and their original characters are actually likable and 3 dimensional. Also, Near is not a nice person in these stories, so Near lovers beware.
*** Now has a spin off story for one of the OCs that is almost as amazing as the main stories, and will be integral for any future developments in the series proper.

* Recommended by whiteladydragon 00
* A fan fiction writer relatively new to the Death Note fandom, her roster is an impressive mix of unassuming but witty humor and satire, and deep, thoughtful exploration of the characters and themes that may have been skimped on in the canon series. One of her oneshots, ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7255404/1/Breaking_The_Fourth_Wall Breaking The Fourth Wall]]'', for instance, is a collection of letters written by most of the DN cast addressing the fandom at large…specifically what they think about how they’re handled in fan fiction. On the more serious side, you have ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7322153/1/A_Shingamis_Justice A Shinigami’s Justice]]'', which concerns a conversation between L and Rem on the subject of justice [[spoiler: just before she kills him and herself]], and ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7777860/1/A_Beautiful_Way_To_Kill A Beautiful Way To Kill]]'', which is about an exchange between Rem and Misa that expounds on Misa’s belief that to die or kill out of love is a beautiful way to go. But these are just three of her fanfics; the rest of them will not disappoint, either.
