* TheAce: L and Light

Game." Subverted when L finds he can't do that for Light. Shopping for Light is hard because he doesn't have a singular obsession like the others and he has to actually think about what to get him. Also everyone but Light always gives L candy and while L likes candy that means the gifts he receives from Light are always more personal and meaningful.
