Alright, as of yet I have been unable to convince myself this is a bad idea, thank my mental masochism for that. Now, I loved the Death Note manga, it managed to hook me with suspense in such a manner that I felt compelled to finish the series even after I had the ending spoiled and saw my number one fanboyed-over character ever die, horribly defeated only to be replaced with a... you know what, let's just skip that and leave it at the fact that I read Death Note to the end and enjoyed the story immensely.
Now, what is this fic which I intend to tear asunder with all the fanboy rage of a thousand Final Fantasy-flamefests? Light And Dark The Adventures Of Dark Yagami. First up, Dark Yagami? Calling your kid «Light» is one thing, but «Dark» ... seriously? Well, this fic better have a damn good explanation for this silliness. But hey, look at me, already ranting before I've even gotten to the fic, this can't be good. As you might be able to tell, I'm going in blind, so if I by any chance should end up ranting about a plot point that gets satisfactorily explained later, do forgive me, I'm assuming the worst about this one.
