12 Moves Sideways by Silver Pard

  • Crossover with Harry Potter
  • Recommended by Aimsme, rewindreplayrepeat, feral, Fenro, Vash Ti
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: After the Yotsuba Arc, Light becomes the new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher. Harry decides he needs watching.
  • Comments: Despite being short compared to most of the others on this list, 12 Moves Sideways packs a powerful punch. It's beautiful, almost wistful, with hints of something darker- it might just be because this Troper is a Light fan, but her heart broke at the Erised scene.

The Chess Match by anja-chan

  • Additional Info: Code Geass/Death Note crossover. Pity it's dead, this is the best DN/CG I've seen.
    • It doesn't seem to be dead, after all. It's been updated quite recently, on 10/11/12.
    • The author updates regularly; the time between the updates is what's long. Compare the publication date and the most recent update date to see what I mean.

''God Complex by Yarochisai

Gods of Many Faces by Homura Bakura

  • Crossover with Yu-Gi-Oh!
  • Recommended by lalalei2001

He will have to regroup with old allies (perhaps friends) and join the battle against Kira to save the world - and to protect those that he realizes he can't live without. Rated T for some violence and language.
  • Tags: Post-series for Yu-Gi-Oh, mid-series for Death Note, Noah Kaiba is alive, Seto/Ishizu is a pairing, no crossover romances.

Cody's Death Note by Vampire Daisuke

  • Recommended by bbb35
  • Status: Dead
  • Crossover with: Total Drama
  • Synopsis: During their trip in Japan, Cody takes something he was never supposed to take, the dreaded bloody book known as the Death Note. What will become of the contestants? I suck at summaries and this is my first story. This won't be very accurate to the original Death Note rules. So don't expect it to be. Rated M for future blood and gore.
