Fever Dreams by Sashocirrione is a Death Note Light x L / L x Light fanfic where Light and L fall in love at the end of the Yotsuba arc and Light realizes that the Kira-plan isn't working-which leads to some awesome hardcore Xanatosing as Light works swiftly to save L from his own plan without incriminating himself or Misa in the process.

Fever Dreams provides examples of:

  • Accidental Pervert: When Near takes over the investigation he has to watch the little shows Light puts on for L on the surveillance cameras.
  • Amnesiac Dissonance: Even after Light falls in love with L and realizes that his plan to rid the world of crime had been fundamentally flawed and doomed to fail from the start, he still convinces himself that he was nonetheless justified in using the Death Note for as long as he did — until he loses his memories of the Death Note for good, whereupon he becomes absolutely repulsed at the thought that Kira might have manipulated or even been him and firmly believes that L shouldn't let his feelings for him get in the way of punishing him if he turns out to have indeed been Kira, even rejecting all the possible explanations/justifications L brings up for making his punishment less severe.
  • Drama-Preserving Handicap: If L's time spent in the rain hadn't caused him to become delirious from a high fever for several days, it would have been far harder for Light to escape his surveillance long enough to communicate with Rem or for Rem to convince L to give the Death Note back to her without him becoming suspicious.
  • Drowning My Sorrows: Light needs more information about the case... so he finds Matsuda at a bar...
