Alice Brighteye.

My Heavenly Judgement by Colbub is a complete fanfiction that follows the adventure of a girl named Alice, who leads an non-eventful life in our world, she even has gray hair and gray eyes to match her nearly invisible existence. Everything in her life was practically boring and uneventful until the day she passed away in a car accident, after some heartfelt goodbyes with her family, she was soon sent to the fictional world of Reborn! (2004) in order to pass her judgement and move on to heaven, so she could meet with her family once again. Her one priority is to not get attached to anyone, for it will make it hard for her to pass her judgement and pass on to heaven. The story is somewhat AU and is extremely OC-centric but is very well-written and delves in deeper to the other characters' pasts and thoughts.


Author's Summary: Alice was normal. Unremarkable, smart-ish and... normal. So when she died, she was shocked. But it was even MORE shocking when part of her Judgment for her to go to Heaven consisted of... protecting Tsuna?


  • Abusive Parents: Hibari's parents fits this trope. His mother often acted cold towards him, albeit she has her nice moments. Hibari's father is tyrannical, power hungry, and is a strong believer that Love is a Weakness. Even Alice can see how abusive he is.
    Alice: (in thought) Man. No wonder Hibari has issues
  • Act of True Love: This Fanfic sure has quite a few of this going on.
    • Hibari's father, Zhang, threatened to kill Alice if Hibari doesn't bow to him and plead for his forgiveness. Hibari actually complies and threw away his pride in order for Alice to live.
    • Alice saving Lambo from a falling truck, which ultimately lead to her death.

    • Also, the battle between Belle and Alice. With Alice realizing that Tsuna and the rest of her friends aren't mere characters in some Manga, but people whom she grew to care for. After that realization Belle was ready to stab Tsuna with her trident, but then Alice intercepts it by taking the stab for Tsuna instead.
  • Action Girl: Alice can be qualified as being this, since she was trained by a spartan teacher before meeting the rest of the KHR cast. She even has her own badass moments as the story goes on.
  • Affably Evil: Belle's moral compass is questionable. However, she revealed that in several other parallel universes that she and Alice were actually close friends. And it is somewhat obvious that Belle still somewhat cares for Alice and feels genuine sadness in having to kill her just so that Belle can pass her trial.
    • There's also Wend, who is immortal and extremely vengeful, to the point where he and Mukuro aren't any different in that particular aspect, is just an extremely misguided soul and is eventually given a second chance. Also in his letter exchanges with Alice, he reveals his past to her rather easily and the letters have a more friendly vibe to it to the point that they both sometimes exchange gifts to one another.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Lambo, I-Pin, and Fuuta all call Alice, 'Ali-nee'. Gokudera refers to Alice as ‘Freaky Eyes’, and Hibari calls Alice, 'Sunglasses', the latter being a bit more questionable whether it is affectionate or not.
  • All Love Is Unrequited: Alice never truly had the chance to initiate in a relationship with anyone during her time in her universe or the Reborn!Universe. Subverted. When she re-unites with Hibari in heaven.
  • Always Second Best: Some insight into Alice’s relationship with Amanda reveals that she always felt inferior to Amanda, but unlike most examples Alice seems to be fine with that.
    • This can also apply to Amanda though there wasn’t any specifications as to why is unknown, but Amanda does admit to Alice that she is actually jealous of Alice’s life
  • Bad "Bad Acting": Apparently, Bianchi has a past with a Brighteye and discriminates every member of the brighteye organization, doesn't last long when Alice cried fake tears and made up a Unbelievable and sappy story on the spot, which is when Bianchi changed her opinions of Brighteyes.
  • Badass Boast: Alice's exchange with Belle during their confrontation.
    Alice: Tsuna needed Friendship, Yamamoto and Gokudera needed acceptance, and I thought I didn't need them both but I do,"
    Belle: "How cute. That's what you've said to me twenty six times in the other alternate timelines,"
    Alice: "This is the first time I have said it,"
  • Badass in Distress: The first half of the final arc revolves around saving Hibari from his father.
  • Battle Butler: Grey is definitely this.
  • Break His Heart to Save Him: Alice tries to pull this on TYL!Hibari when she found out that he loved her of all people by avoiding present Hibari and acting a bit more cold in their interactions, it didn't work and Hibari ended up liking her anyway. Even when he knew her death was inevitable.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Alice barely studies and continues to place first academically, however it is to be expected given that she is older than she actually looks.
  • Broken Ace: It's been revealed that Hibari excelled in almost anything that he was told to do so when he was younger. Mainly because his father abuses him if he was any less than perfect.
  • Celibate Hero: There's a good reason why Alice avoids getting too close to anyone who might catch her romantic interest or just someone she deeply cares for in general.
  • Character Development: Kind of the whole point of this fic is to also give other characters (besides the main characters) some personal screen time and a more fleshed out backstory. Such as exploring more into the most notably Nana, Lambo, and Mukuro's pasts, and how their relationships with the other characters drive their motivation for becoming the kind of person they are. Also, Hibari as well, who eventually allows himself to be vulnerable when he needs to be and acknowledge the Vongola family as an ally, thanks to Alice's friendship and eventual love.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Jared from the Varia becomes this in only a matter of 10 years, and Patrick Brighteye is definitely this.
  • Comically Serious: Alice isn't really fazed by the bizarre things that transpires around Tsuna, which is a given since she knows what's going to happen and was sort of expecting it.
  • Cool Big Sis: Alice actually had two younger siblings back when she was alive in her universe and needless to say, she is dearly missed by both of them. Lambo and Alice eventually become close enough that Lambo believed that it was his fault that Alice died. She gets along with all the younger characters in general however.
  • Cuteness Proximity: Alice has this in spades. The first time she met Reborn despite knowing how dangerous he is, she held him and voiced out loud that he was 'cute'. She also can't help but to point out (in her head) when something she sees is cute, even when she is in a dangerous situation.
  • Deadpan Snarker: One would actually think that amount of sass that Alice has shown towards almost everyone, that she had all these remarks written down and memorized beforehand.
  • Death Glare: Alice's default look. It also scares away quite a few people.
  • Designated Parents: Downplayed. Even though Tsuna is the boss he plays the role of The Heart for the group and often cares about the others’ welfare more, making him the Team Mom. And then, there’s Alice, while she does somewhat care about the wellbeing of others she is more about discipline as seen with how she tries to constantly keep the guardians in line, which makes her the Team Dad.
  • Dogged Nice Guy: Grey in his younger years was this to Turchino.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Alice met both Dino and Reborn in a mafia party before their first original introduction. Alice has also met Yuni in a mafia party before the Ten Years Later Arc has even begun.
  • Epic Fail: Alice's death. To be more specific, Alice was carrying Amanda's huge pile of love letters while walking across a street, and she unceremoniously trips on one of the letters that fell from her hands and proceeds to get run over by a speeding car. It is both funny and horrifying at the same time.
  • Face of an Angel, Mind of a Demon: Wend was mentioned looking rather innocent. However, his mind is anything but that. Inverted, because he actually does get better.
  • Foil: Alice is this to Amanda, her childhood friend. Amanda being the more extroverted, vibrant, and cheerful character. While, Alice is introverted, pessimistic, and is only known for being Amanda's 'nerdy' friend. Despite this, Amanda considers Alice her best friend, and when Alice comes back to her world as a ghost, Alice finds that Amanda keeps a picture of Alice in her room, years after Alice's death.
    • Belle is this to Alice during the Ten Years Later Arc.
  • Fragile Speedster: Alice matches Hibari in speed alone, however, she admits that she can be physically overpowered by almost anyone.
  • Generation Xerox: Many characters comment on how similar Alice is to Qin in terms of appearance and personality.
    • To a lesser extent, Alayne, The First Vongola Star Guardian can also count as this for Alice.
  • Height Angst: Alice gets somewhat depressed whenever anyone calls her 'short'. And when she meets everyone briefly during her time being hit by the Ten Year Bazooka, she was bitter about how tall the guys have become.
    • Patrick however, Fits this trope Up To Eleven. Going so far to even celebrate the fact that Alice is shorter than him, and being rather antagonistic towards the rather tall Yamamoto. So antagonistic that he only forgave Yamamoto when Yamamoto himself said that he thinks Hello Kitty is cool.
  • Hidden in Plain Sight: The fate of the whole Katekyo Hitman Reborn! Universe (The manga series) is hidden in Alice's underwear drawer. Yep.
  • I Am Not Pretty: it’s been heavily implied throughout the story that Alice doesn’t see herself as anywhere close to attractive, yet there are moments when She Cleans Up Nicely and genuinely smiles that indicate that if she just put some effort into looking nice, she’s actually really pretty.
  • I Will Wait for You: Subverted from what the Trope indicates. Alice says these very words to her family when she passed away, saying that she'll wait for them in Heaven. She even says this to Hibari in the end when she was moving onto Heaven.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Alice uses...chopsticks to fight.
  • Instant Fanclub: When Alice first transferred to Namimori, a lot of the guys were attracted to her Yellow eyes, much to her chagrin.
  • Mama's Boy: It is revealed that Hibari was actually quite fond of his mother in some flashbacks.
  • Meaningful Name: The Title of each chapter.
  • Mind Rape: Wend attempted to get Alice to fail her judgement by pretending to be Alice's real family and asking her how come she doesn't love them anymore, Alice thankfully manages to keep a strong ground and doesn't get swayed by Wend's attempts.
  • No Name Given: The author never really revealed Alice's true last name, before she was a Brighteye.
  • The Not-Love Interest: Alice shared many moments with Tsuna, but nothing really transpired between the two of them in the end. Doesn't help that The Author was often testing out the waters to see who the audience wants Alice to end up with.
  • Odd Friendship: Mukuro and Alice starts off on a rocky start, but eventually they grew to care for each other, albeit they still somewhat snark at each other.
  • Older Than They Look: The Brighteyes in general. Seeing as how Alice originally died at the age 16, then de-ages to 8 in the beginning of The Reborn Universe and dies again at 16, she is actually older than the cast by 8-9 years.
  • One of the Guys: Downplayed. Alice majorly hangs out with Tsuna and his guardians and it's discussed that she acts tomboyish enough to fit the bill. Alice is also friends with Kyoko, Haru, Hana and Chrome.
  • Original Character: Alice along with many of the Brighteye's.
  • Pair the Spares: As Hibari and Alice finally get together, Tsuna ends up with Kyoko which isn’t too strange considering his puppy crush on her, though it is strange once it’s revealed that future Tsuna loved Alice to the point that he regards her as The Lost Lenore, there were also no love lost between Tsuna and Kyoko and it’s made clear when they only get together after Alice’s death which holds a big impact on Tsuna. Overall, it’s a very pitiful arrangement that makes Kyoko look like the rebound for Tsuna.
    • it is implied that Yamamoto and Haru get together as well. How? We really don’t know.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: Alice with almost anyone that is male, can be considered as this. Most notably the Vongola family members and Jared from The Varia.
  • Power Nullifier: The Star Flames can nullify one's senses in multiple varieties depending on one's personality. For example, Alice is able to make anyone or anything look invisible to someone, Belle has the power to completely immobilize someone's sense of movement and time, and Alayne has the power to turn off the five senses of anyone she pleases.
  • Retired Badass: Grey was a professional hitman in his prime, and is still very much a badass.
  • Rule 63: In a Extra, Reborn obtains the 'Gender-Swapping Bullet', and proceeds to use it on Tsuna, Gokudera, Alice, Hibari, and Yamamoto. Needless to say, Reborn had gained a lot of blackmailing material that day.
  • Running Gag: Whenever something makes Alice feel utterly dumbfounded, she automatically bashes her head into anything that seems remotely hard and vertical. In her dreamworld she even makes a floating wall appear out of nowhere just so that she can conveniently bash her head against it.
    • Also, whenever Mukuro appears in Alice's dreamworld, there is always a chance that Alice will space out and make weird things happen outside her window. There's even several times where a variety of different fruits came out of nowhere and drops onto Mukuro's head.
  • Secretly Dying: Which is ironic in a sense, considering Alice is already...y'know, dead. In the Ten Years Arc, it is revealed that the more Alice uses her flames, the closer she is to death's door and doesn't reveal this to anyone until near the end.
  • Shipper on Deck: In the TYL! Arc, it is heavily implied that Kusakabe wants Alice and Hibari to stop beating around the bush and realize their feelings for each other. Ryohei even tries to get Hibari to interact with Alice more before she's completely gone.
    • Alice pretty much jumps at the chance whenever she can to subtly hint Hana and Ryohei's future relationship, questionable whether she just teases them for her own amusement or if she's actually rooting for them.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: Hibari doesn't really show interest in anything or anyone besides Alice. Reborn even monologues about this.
    Reborn: (in thought) "Hibari wasn't asexual. Or bisexual, or homosexual, or heterosexual. He was only inclined towards Alice."
  • The Smart Girl: slightly inverted. Considering that Alice knows what is going to happen in the Reborn! Universe in the span of the manga series it's to be expected, however, she was the only one to be able to deduce the reason why everyone who are polar opposites have the same flame type. Alice also uses most of her knowledge for fighting instead of relying on pure strength.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: Anyone/Brighteye. Really. Considering that the Brighteye members are actually full of half dead people who will eventually die after completing their trial, it's to be expected. Even Bill discourages this, since emotions in a new universe will only make the process of sending that Brighteye to heaven a lot more difficult for everyone.
  • Stepford Smiler: Kyouko somewhat fits this trope. Her female classmates sees her as a mary sue, and besides Hana and the rest of the cast, Kyouko doesn't have any other friends.
  • Sunglasses at Night: In the earlier chapters, Alice often wore sunglasses whether it was sunny or not. Albeit, she wore it in the attempt to hide her flashy eyes.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: Alice's eyes are yellow and torchy, which signifies her status as a Brighteye.
  • The Syndicate: Although the Vongola, Varia, and Millefiore fits this trope, The Brighteye Organization fits this to an absolute T. The Brighteyes are infamous for being all-knowing and a strong information network for the underground organizations and is easily considered a mystery to the world. Doesn't help that even Byakuran doesn't know who or what the Brighteyes are.
  • Teach Me How To Fight: During the Varia Arc, Alice really goes out of her way to get Grey to train her properly about combat.
  • Team Mom: Alice has a tendency to be this to the whole Vongola whenever things get way out of hand. She even lectures an earful to Lambo when no one else is willing to. A greater example is when she constantly tries to keep everyone in line during her Succession trial.
  • Tearful Smile: Alice had this after saving her sister from a similar near death experience that Alice has went through.
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: Alice is practical in every sense of the word, and prefers to do things with minimal effort to the point that she finds makeup and girly clothing a hassle. Yet she enjoys reading bad romance novels, is secretly a romantic at heart, and loves cute things etc.
    • on a bittersweet note, she even mentions that if she hadn’t died early, her greatest dream would be to fall in love and start a family which shows that she’s surprisingly maternal.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Alice and her hash-browns are like Byakuran and his marshmallows.
  • Two Girls to a Team: The Vongola has Chrome(sometimes) and Alice.
  • Undying Loyalty: Alice is literally willing to go through hell and back for those that she likes. Confronting The girls who were trash talking Kyouko in the bathroom to allowing Chrome to freeload at her place with no complaints, going into Mukuro’s dreamworld in order to help him find his key, staying beside Hibari the whole time while running away from Zhang, and even going so far as to strike a deal with Bill, in order to get Yamamoto back from the void.
  • The Un-Smile: When Alice forces herself to smile, it comes out looking like she's either constipated or just giving a maniacal grin.
  • Unresolved Sexual Tension: Hibari and Alice's interactions with each other are very obvious, and it doesn't help that Alice is Oblivious to Love or that Hibari is Married to his School either. It gets resolved in the end, and the two becomes a couple.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Downplayed. Alice isn't a villain, however she does know of future events and doesn't warn anyone about Shimon betraying them. Which lead to multiple deaths of innocent people in the inheritance ceremony, as well as Yamamoto being hospitalized. She even gets called out on this. But she reminds herself that the bigger goal was for her to let these events happen, so that she can pass her trial and go to heaven.
    • Belle is this trope in Spades. She even tries to convince Alice not to care about the Vongola, since Belle genuinely believes that everyone in The Reborn! Universe are all just fictional characters.
  • What Is This Thing You Call "Love"?: Hibari has a hard time comprehending why Alice and the other guardians would go to such lengths to become his friend. Also, due to their growing fondness for Alice, older Tsuna and Hibari often questions what love actually is.
  • When She/He Smiles: A baseball teammate of Yamamoto's comments that Alice looks better smiling, and it gets commented on quite frequently by others when they see Alice actually smile.
    • Alice witnessed Hibari giving a rare smile to Hibird once, and was quick to think that it was a nicer look than his usual scowl.
  • You Are Number 6: Alice is called Number 50 in the Brighteye Organization.
  • Your Days Are Numbered: A Brighteye reincarnated to another world will die at the same age they first died. Given that Alice originally died at the age of sixteen, she dies faster than the other Brighteye's. And due to using up her flames to help calm Hibari down when he fights Zhang, Alice has only ten days left to live after that.

How well does it match the trope?
