Fanfic / That Epic Plan

Go To

That Epic Plan (pt 2) (pt 3) (pt 4) by Chii-Kawaii-Chan is a cracky Death Note For Want of a Nail Fic that ships Beyond Birthday and Light Yagami. 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 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 his boyfriend. Hilarity Ensues.


That Epic Plan provides examples of:

  • Big Bad Duumvirate: Light and Beyond are actually on pretty equal footing. They've portioned it out so they can share power-Light is in charge of the Evil Plan and Beyond is in charge in bed.
  • Big "SHUT UP!": Light gets annoyed when Beyond and L are arguing.
    Light: Shut up, you two crazy panda-people.
  • Bullying a Dragon:
    Beyond: So, you're ...a god of death?
    Ryuk: Yup.
    Beyond: Hm, you're ugly...
    Light: What the hell are you doing?
    Beyond: Checking.
    Light: Checking what?
    Beyond: Whether you still smelled know.
    Light: Seriously, what's wrong with you?
    Beyond: So many things.
    L: You two are sort of retarded...
    Beyond: I know you are but what am I?!
    L: More retarded.
  • Coitus Uninterruptus: Beyond tries to initiate sex with Light in front of the taskforce, including Light's father.
  • A Date with Rosie Palms: Beyond walks in on Light as he's wanking off to Pamela Anderson, Heidi Klum, and Hugh Jackman

  • Dating What Daddy Hates: Souichiro is understandably not happy when his son begins dating a known Serial Killer.
  • Double Meaning: Light and Beyond strike up their bargain right in front of Aizawa by pretending to be talking about a game of cards.
  • Emo Teen: Aw, Light.
    Light: I need to study so I can become a policeman like my father.
    Beyond: Like you could ever make it, being Kira and all.
    Light: Why don't you do a Mexican hat dance on top of my hopes and dreams, asshole?
  • Engineered Public Confession: L and the taskforce attempt to do this by leaving Light and Beyond alone in a room together but by luck they don't get around to talking about anything incriminating.
  • Hollywood Law: L and the taskforce allow a convicted Serial Killer to bunk with a college student for the sake of secrecy and convenience.
  • Horrifying the Horror: L nearly gives Light and Beyond heart attacks when he comes popping out of his hiding place in the seemingly empty hotel room.
  • Human Resources: When Matusda is being tardy and useless as usual Beyond suggests that they could always sell Matsuda on the black market.
  • Hypocritical Humor:
    Light: Vanity is a mortal sin, you know.
    Beyond: Is that so, god?
  • I'm Standing Right Here:
    L: Are you aware of the fact that he's an insane killer?
    Light: Couldn't help but notice.
    Beyond: Hey, don't talk about Beyond like Beyond's not even here.
  • Insult Back Fire:
    Light: You know I used to think I took the prize for obnoxiousness, but what do you know, I bow to the champion.
    Beyond: Thank you, you're too kind.
  • It's All About Me:
    Light (being choked by Beyond): Can't – breathe-!
    Beyond: You and your needs...
  • Leave Him to Me!: Beyond agrees to help Light in his little plan but calls dibs on killing L.
  • A Match Made in Stockholm: Beyond is technically Light's (and the taskforce's) prisoner but Beyond can just as easily kill or ruin Light.
  • Masochist's Meal: You'd have to be crazy to consider eating anything that Beyond has prepared.
  • Pungeon Master: Beyond
    Light: I swear to god if you don't stop this shit right now-
    Beyond: There'll be a satanic wig?
    Light: Huh? What are you on about?
    Beyond: You know. Hell toupee.
  • Real Men Hate Sugar: Beyond is of the opinion that sugar is evil.
  • Road Trip Plot: The first chapter is "prisoner transport" which means Light and Aizawa are alone in a car with Beyond Birthday-no wonder Aizawa tunes them out.
  • Scarpia Ultimatum: To keep Beyond's mouth shut Light has to agree to be his boyfriend.
  • Slash Fic: It's Beyond/Light (with L peeping on them).
  • Trojan Prisoner: Naturally Light is getting Beyond transferred to the custody of the taskforce so that he can defeat L.
  • Trouble Entendre: Light and Beyond strike up a bargain while pretending to be talking about a game of cards.
  • Undercover as Lovers: Beyond insists that in order to throw off L they need to "pretend" to be together.
  • Unholy Matrimony: Light and Beyond.
    "In the past few weeks, they'd managed to convince everyone that they were in fact a loving couple rather than two psychopaths hooking up for kicks. Although Light wasn't too sure about L, the detective still seemed suspicious and watched their every move. Although Beyond kept insisting L was just a peeper."
  • Unsexy Sadist: Though Beyond's brutal treatment of Light gets Played for Laughs, Beyond is still very creepy.
