Addiction by Jezzaanne is a Death Note AU and Continuation Fic. Because of Light's actions when he was alive the Shinigami Realm and the Human World have become unbalanced with so much death and several new Kiras have begun killing. Light becomes a Shinigami and the Shinigami King tasks him with fixing the mess he made or else he will be crushed by the weight of both worlds-ideally WITHOUT killing anyone seeing as every life he takes will make his burden heavier. But this is easier said than done as Light is suffering from a severe murder addiction. Also the King warped reality so that L, Mello, Matt, Souichiro Yagami and Beyond Birthday are still alive allegedly to "help" him with this quest.
