When L tells the taskforce why he freaked out so much over the Second Kira mentioning "the eyes" Light decides that using this "Beyond Birthday" as Kira's eyes is too good an opportunity to pass up and so suggests [[ConsultingAConvictedKiller they arrange it so that Beyond will assist with the Kira investigation]]; but Light gets more than he bargained for—controlling BB is harder than he anticipated and to buy his silence Light has to agree to be [[SlashFic his boyfriend]]. HilarityEnsues.
