''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2668287/1/Little-Black-Death-Note Little Black Death Note]]'' by [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/426476/stranger12 stranger12]] is a ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' and ''Manga/DeathNote'' {{crossover}}. Just as Harry goes to face Voldemort for the final battle the Dark Lord suddenly dies of a heart attack. Feeling more than a little confused and cheated at this turn of events Harry returns to school at Hogwarts where he meets the new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher—one with big plans for the Wizarding World and for Harry himself.

----
!!Provides Examples Of:
* AboveGoodAndEvil: Raito/Kira considers himself to be such though he knows that if the Wizards knew what he was up to the pathetic fools would not understand and would classify him as "Dark".
* AlasPoorVillain: Harry almost feels sorry for Voldemort's sudden and inglorious end. Also Draco is a mess after [[spoiler: his father's death. Sure his father was an asshole but he still loved him.]]
* AlternateUniverseFic
* [[AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents Amazingly Embarrassing Mentor]]: Hondo Marukai to Raito.
* AmbiguousSituation: Dumbledore hiring Raito as the Defense Teacher. Is Dumbledore under Kira's control? [[IdiotBall Has he gone senile?]] [[NotSoDifferent Does he see his younger self or Grindewald in Raito?]] Or is he fully aware of what's going on and [[ThirtyXanatosPileUp doing some scheming of his own?]] (Dumbledore's trademarked eye-twinkle suggests this.) Also Raito's apprenticeship with Hondo Marukai. Who is really in control of the situation? Raito finds Marukai's evil distasteful but is he really so far gone he doesn't care about his mentor's gruesome hobbies (for which he would normally reward with a heart attack) or is he abstaining from killing Marukai because 1) he CAN'T, [[StoryBreakerPower Marukai is just too powerful]] 2) Marukai is useful to him, or 3) [[TheStarscream is Raito merely waiting to get powerful enough to surpass and kill Marukai]]?
* AmbiguouslyEvil: Raito, [[OffStageVillainy he hasn't yet gotten around to doing many of those vague nasty things he's planning on doing]] seeing as he's been [[VillainsOutShopping concentrating on grading papers]]. The text claims that despite the MoralEventHorizon he crosses in BackStory, Kira still isn't "evil" merely [[KnightTemplar "justice-driven"]] though this may be a case of UnreliableNarrator.
