Go To

All You Need Is Love by The Carnivorous Muffin (who also writes Lily and the Art of Being Sisyphus) is an AU Death Note Crack Fic Romantic Comedy pairing up Light Yagami and Naomi Misora by having Light stalk Misora... but in a charming way. Meanwhile Misa and L continue to throw themselves at Light, while L pretends to investigate him as a mass-murder suspect.

All You Need Is Love provides examples of:

  • Brainwashed: Naomi concludes that Light has brainwashed his family and everyone he's met into thinking he's a good person.
  • Brick Joke: "You have another spurned and neglected lover? God dammit, Ryuuzaki!"
  • Broke Episode: since the computer thinks L is dead his accounts are frozen.
  • Brutal Honesty: Naomi's preferred method of dealing with Mello.
  • Bullying a Dragon: Subverted, Naomi wants to stay on Light's good-side in case Light ever remembers he's a serial killing mass-murderer.
    • L plays this completely straight with his continual harassment of Light.
    • Duck and Mello:
    Naomi: Now, Duck, you and I have already had a talk about provoking mentally unstable individuals...
  • Camp Gay: Mello. Upon meeting him, L mistakes him for Hikaru Imagay.
  • Camp Straight: Light. Matsuda is shocked speechless when he realizes Light is flirting with Naomi and not L.
  • Captain Obvious: "Yes Misa, two plus two equals four."
  • Cassandra Truth: Naomi knows Light is Kira, is stalking her, and pretty much everything that's going on plot-wise but since she's acquired a reputation for being neurotic no one will believe her.
  • I'm Standing Right Here
    Light: I think your successor thinks we have the combined I.Q. of Matsuda.
    Matsuda: You guys know I'm right here.
  • Ignored Enemy: L, Naomi, and Mello get into an arguement in which Mello outs himself as the one and only transvestite terrorist-and becomes very miffed when neither L nor Naomi care enough to stop bickering because of it.
  • Informed Ability: Mello's genius IQ.
  • Infraction Distraction: while Light is killing criminals...
    Naomi: What are you working on anyway, we both know you're Kira.
    Light: I'm not working on anything.
    Naomi: Then why the laptop?
    Naomi: Wow that is the most boring pornography I have ever seen. This is porn for you?

  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: Naomi sees that Mello still believes he's menacing after getting his ass handed to him and she still thinks it's just sad.
  • Insane Troll Logic:
    Naomi: [S]ince you keep claiming to be God this must somehow be your fault.
    Light: I'm not sure that's how god complexes actually work, Naomi.
  • Irritation Is the Sincerest Form of Flattery: "The team looked at L who looked about ready to shoot himself at the fact that his successor had stolen his entire get-up. At least Mello had the decency to become a transvestite mafia lord for the sake of originality, Near was just a sad little chip off the old block."
  • It's All About Me: L is even worse about this than Light and that's saying something.
  • Reports of My Death Were Greatly Exaggerated: L isn't dead but the computer thinks he is.
  • Riding into the Sunset: parodied on Matsuda's soap opera "The Boogeyman" where the Great Detective Y rides off into the sunset, again not bothering to tell anyone his name, and leaving his spurned and neglected lover Hikaru Imagay behind.
  • Right in Front of Me: when the taskforce is talking about Mello in front of a (disguised) Mello.
  • Rousseau Was Right: When Naomi attempts to teach Duck about ethics:
    Naomi: [Most people] believe that man is essentially good and ride upon that faith throughout life.
    Duck: That's a silly thing to believe. If I believed in the essential goodness of man I'd be Kira too and we certainly don't need two of those.
    Naomi: Duck, Kira is a serial killer who believes he kills the irredeemable scum of the earth. I don't think he should be your role model of men who have faith in humanity.
    Duck: He wouldn't bother if he thought there was no chance of redemption, he believes that most people have that spark of goodness in their hearts and only some are the scum of the earth. If he thought that all men were worthless he'd either do nothing or he'd just kill everyone.
  • Sadistic Choice:
    L If you're finally going to admit that you're Kira I'll have you know that so far your various futures entail your being my sex slave, the government's sex slave, or locked up in some mental institution. Of the three I prefer your being my sex slave but the decision is yours. Or Naomi-chan could shoot you behind the chemical shed, if that's preferable.
  • Scarpia Ultimatum: when L presses the issue of the above...
    L So really the only options that we have left after we prove that Light is Kira are for him to be my personal sex slave or to be shot behind the chemical shed. Prove to ourselves at least, I don't think we'll ever convince Soichiro or Matsuda even with the thirteen day rule. So Light since this is your immediate future which would you prefer, death or sex slave?
  • Scylla and Charybdis: Naomi relates how it SUCKS being stuck between L and Kira's warring egos:
    Naomi: You do realize that if L or Kira were to find out they would kill you... If Light finds out he'll probably kill you. However he might keep you around as a pawn and use you to reach his ultimate goal of creating a cult civilization in which he's god. That means that if you don't find yourself drowning in a swimming pool you'll find yourself brainwashed and tortured and then thinking nothing at all... If L finds you that's a whole different story. L won't kill you but he will tie you to a chair and leave you there to rot for fifty days and then pretend to execute you only to leave you alive so that the government can perform nasty experiments on you. He probably won't give you a trial but instead will leave you in a mental institution or have you killed off by thugs. Then he'll steal your name and use it as yet another detective name and that will be the end of that.
  • Sdrawkcab Name: This fic mocks the overused "Imagay" fandom in-joke.
  • Soap Within a Show: Matsuda's soap opera which is very loosely based on the lives of the Kira Taskforce...
    Matsuda: Well, Inamo it turns out had an affair with Y's evil twin A and that A is now back in town but Y doesn't want Hikaru to know because he's afraid that A will seduce Y because they're identical and it's really hard to tell them apart.
    Light: And let me guess Hikaru is going to sleep with both of them because he's not only gay but he's also a whore.
    Matsuda: Um, well, I don't know if I'd use that term but what if he really can't tell the difference and then… Wow Light, you have really good ideas! You should help me write sometime!
    Light: You know, this is excellent proof that I'm not Kira. Ryuzaki may be miserable and death-seeking but if I had been Kira then surely Matsuda would be dead by now.
  • Something We Forgot: Between dealing with Light and L and her son it takes a week for Naomi to realize that Raye has been kidnapped.
  • Spit Take: Naomi with her coffee, repeatedly when Duck is asking about his parentage... and suggests that he really wanted Ryuk to be his father.
  • Stalker with a Crush: Light towards Naomi. Also L towards Light:
    "Light had been extremely careful and it would have been ridiculous to jump to the conclusion that he killed via notebook rather than magic bath towel. For months L had been convinced that Light had killed via bath towel, or magic shower soap, or just showers."
  • Stalking is Love
  • Steven Ulysses Perhero: "Hello, my name is Hikaru Imagay! My name is a play on my sexuality!"
  • Sucksessor: BB, Near, and Mello.
  • Sunglasses at Night: Matt wears goggles indoors, in the dark. Naomi "supposed that since it was goggles it hadn't offended her as immediately as sunglasses would have but he still looked like a tool."
  • Surrounded by Idiots: Light and L feel this way and Naomi Misora realizes she's Surrounded By Lunatics.
  • Take That, Audience!: or Take That Fandom. The Meta joke of Matsuda's soap opera, staring Hikaru Imagay the gay prostitute.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Misa and L are this for the taskforce. L feels this way about Near and Mello and makes Light talk to Near because he doesn't want to talk to him or even let him know he's still alive.
  • There Are No Therapists: After the LABB, L refused to help pay for Naomi's therapy.
    • Light's parents attempt to make him seek help from a therapist when his mental issues begin to become obvious after blatantly stalking an older woman and her fiance, crashing at their place, and refusing to leave. Light's parents concede that their son MIGHT just have a problem and should probably get help. Naomi notes that it's a couple of years too late. Nor is there any therapy available for all the times L drugged and had his way with Light. But L did give him a gun...
  • They Would Cut You Up: L points out that even if he arrested Light as Kira the world governments wouldn't execute him right away. They'd want to study him first to see what effects long-term usage of the notebook has on a human body...
  • With Friends Like These...: "Naomi realized her closest friend was a Serial Killer who crashed at her house and tormented her son and husband."
  • You, Get Me Coffee: this is usually Matsuda's job but when L gets annoyed with having to deal with Near's minion and goes out to get his own coffee. That's when the taskforce mutinies in the hopes of making L's coffeeboy-status permanent.
