This Page feels like a commerical. "It's not just a copy of the series!" "Over 2,600 hits and counting"! Buy today for 10.99 with shipping and handling! I mean, it's an okay fic, but it feels like the author wrote the entire page.
Well, he did... Didn't he? That's the impression that I got.
He did indeed. And entry-pimped it relentlessly. Feel free to neutralise things a little.
I think we should just delete the entire page. I mean, this article is so incredibly biased and self-pimping that the only way to fix would be to delete everything. And this is just personal opinion, but this fic doesn't deserve a page. I mean, let's face it: It's Death Note with a few names crossed out.
Why don't we just simply rewrite the page to be more neutral instead of just throwing the baby out with the bathwater?
I made it a little more neutral, but I still think that the best thing to do is to delete the page. First of all even with deleting all the stuff about 2,000 hits and "not a carbon copy" this article still basically exists as a self promoting ad. Secondly, if it weren't for the fact that the author is a troper, no one would know anything about this fan fic.
One thing: There Is No Such Thing As Notability around these parts.
But all articles are also supossed to be unbaised.
Remove the bias, then.
Although I find the shameless self-promotion and the fact that this page was created by the author himself a bit irritating, I have to agree with Komodin. Now that it's here, might as well just make the best of it. Besides, all the uproar it's caused has somehow made it notable in a strange, unintentional way.
Can we get some commentary on this thing that isn't by the original author? The entire page is based on There Is No Such Thing As Notability, so we might as well see if it is any good. Given the grammar and spelling errors from the few extracts I've seen, I doubt it's as popular or faithful to the series as the writer makes it out to be, and I haven't even seen Death Note.
Also: 2000 hits. And you update this number regularly? Really?
It's entering into Old Shame now. I'm thinking of redoing it.

How well does it match the trope?
