05:13 pm - More DN Drabbles - theme cards
Yes, so when I actually had the opportunity to sleep this weekend, I went and stayed alternately reading fic and studying for my organic chem test. >___>; And then at about 1 in the morning, I felt compelled to write some DN because, well, DN is so totally love. Sorry, shukuun, I didn't get around to your requests, but considering one of them was 'procrastination,' doesn't this kind of count? XD;

No real title. There are two drabbles that can be read separately or together, but in no particular order. Enjoy!



o1

When Matsuda had proposed a break and took out his cards, he never saw the deviously calculating look from L or the sudden manic gleam in Raito’s eyes. If he had, his survival instincts (the ones which got him through the Academy relatively unscathed) would have kicked in, telling him to burn the damn deck and bring out another pot of caffeinated goodness because, men, we’re pulling another all-nighter for the sake of justice!

Unfortunately, the young detective had been distracted by Misa’s loud exclamations of “I want to sit next to Raito!” and missed his opportunity of escape entirely.

*****

o2

L took a deep breath and exhaled slowly, silently, his agitation well hidden behind a mask of nonchalance and cake crumbs. He’d never faced an opponent so masterful at the art of cunning and deceit before. Every bluff he made was called. Every hand he played, destroyed. Yagami Raito. Just what does he see that I don’t?

Across the table, the Raito smiled and looked at his opponent. More correctly, he seemed to be looking beyond L, which chilled older man to the core. After a few moments, the smile deepened and he pinned L with a stare.

“All in.”

And because nothing is complete without some crack, OMAKE:

“Four-ten, off-suit,” Ryuuku announced, floating lazily behind L. The apple would be worth it later.

XD; Raito's unscrupulous, and Ryuuku's easy to manipulate. L never saw it coming, haha. Glad you read it. ^^

Asdfalejjsdfajwe I KNEW IT! RAITO! THAT CHEATER!!! Hahahaa.



I can totally see Misa declaring that they should play strip poker in hopes of seeing more of Raito's skin. Only to be disappointed when (somehow!!!) Raito wins every hand. Of course, she wouldn't be the only disappointed one. *coughLcough* BUT WHY WOULD L BE DISAPPOINTED? It's because he's cold. From his lack of clothes. Yes, that's it. I'm positive. >__>;;

Hahahahaha, oh my gosh, I just got images of Raito playing Net-Poker. XDD One of us should totally do a HnG-esque cross-over with that. XDDD

I'm gonna write more with them playing other games. XD; Card games, yes. Haha, thanks for liking!

Hahaha but Raito needs to use Ryuuku somehow! Net-poker just doesn't seem to let him gain any advantage. XP

...RAITO vs. HIKARU!---wait, I don't suppose Sai and Ryuuku would be able to see each other, would they? I mean Ghosts and Shinigami aren't exactly the same thing... Hmm...

XD; If they played War I could see the loser taking it pretty hard while pretending it was "just a game". Hahahaa.

I'm sure Sai and Ryuuku would become the best of friends. Just imagine...

OH. I actually had started a drabble where they were going to play War, but I couldn't make it long enough to work. XD; Basically it went:

Raito: Ryuuzaki, this is never going to end. We need to know when to stop.
L: If you want to quit, go right ahead.
Raito: *tries another tactic because he doesn't want to forfeit* We've been at this for over an hour. Perhaps it's best if we went back to the investigation.
L: I'm waiting for Watari to send me a file, so there's no rush.
Raito: ...how about a break then? I'm sure your glucose levels are falling low.
L: No, I had a case of donuts earlier. It should last another hour or so.
Raito: *inner screams of frustration*
L: *beats Raito's King with an Ace*

Man, War is a very time consuming game. XD;

Glad I could amuse you. ^^ Thanks for reading!
