01:09 am - Drabble Meme Mei
To restart my participation in fandom, I went for Mei's request of L x Raito first, because I'm most comfortable with writing pre-60 DN fic. XD; She gets two drabbles because the first one wasn't really L x Raito. >__>; The second one is set some time after he 'relinquishes' the Death Note. The first is before the handcuffs. XP

Title: Typo
Pairing: slight L x Raito? (Death Note)
Words: 346
Requested by: meiface
Prompts: watching Jpop on TV, petit fours,and a blue pen

The investigation team was watching the 11 o’clock news for any clues regarding the Kira case. To be more correct, Raito was watching the weather forecast and L was engrossed with his box of petit fours, courtesy of Matsuda’s visit to the local bakery. (“Can you believe these were on sale? 100 yen each!”) Chief Yagami and the others had gone home for the night -- their usual departure time was two in the morning, but after Raito saw the dark rings under his father’s eyes, he’d done the sonly thing and insisted the older man go on home, he and L would take care of things here.

“…and a 70% chance of rain tomorrow, with clouds and a high of…”

“I suppose there may be more accidents tomorrow,” L commented offhandedly, fork in mouth, though Raito did not miss the look L gave him from the corner of his eye.

Raito changed the channel, skimming through various programs (a cooking show, infomercials, a music video of happy Japanese girls singing in heavily accented English) until he found a station playing international news.

“…four out of the five suspects for the Kelly murder case died in their holding cells, the big trial only seven days away…”

Raito kept his surprise internal, but four out of five? What happened? He dutifully jotted down the names of the suspects as the anchorwoman continued with the story, but he wasn’t really paying attention to the television set (he’d written these out earlier, after all). He chewed on the top of his pen and frowned as crumbs fell into the crack between the cushions of the sofa.

“Ryuuzaki, why don’t you eat at the table?”

L countered with a small smile. “Is my eating disturbing your concentration, Raito-kun?” The dark-haired man leaned over, head almost resting on Raito’s shoulder, and read the notes the other had taken.

“It’s not that…” Raito began, irritated and exasperated.

“Hmm, you spelt Vachinovesky wrong,” L pointed out, smudging the page with some cream. “It should be a ‘y’ at the end, not an ‘i'.”

Title: Beat the Heat
Pairing: L x Raito (Death Note)
Words: 464
Requested by: meiface
Prompt: a muggy summer day and a fan

“Misa is too hot!”

“I’m sorry, but the air conditioning system is broken.”

“You’re a genius, aren’t you? Fix it~~!”

The heat was unbearable, summer temperatures reaching the mid 40’s plus humidity. Raito wiped the sweat from his brow and tried to focus on the report his father had given him to look over. The cuff on his wrist was disgustingly warm and his usual preppy attire was disheveled and sticking to his body in all the wrong places.

The fan was working but all it accomplished was the blowing of more hot and muggy air into Raito’s face. The weather report had predicted rain today, but not a cloud was in the sky and the sun was brighter than ever. For some strange reason, Raito wanted to know the name of that liar of a meteorologist.

Matsuda had suggested moving the investigation to a different building and Mogi seconded. Chief Yagami approved the idea and the team had set out to transfer locations, but L opted to stay back. There was no persuading him, and since L stayed, Raito stayed. And where Raito was, Misa would be.

“Ryuuzaki, can’t you call in a technician to get it repaired?” Raito asked. Even his voice seemed to be dampened by the heat.

“No, I can’t risk outsiders coming in. I’m sure you understand, Raito-kun.”

No, Raito wanted to reply, he didn’t understand because the heat was turning his mind into a haze and how were they supposed to get anything done if he couldn’t even think properly? “Yes, I understand.” He sighed. “Misa, you don’t have to be here. Go to the mall or some other place with AC.”

Misa gasped. “Misa could never! Not when Raito is suffering!”

Raito gritted his teeth. “Please, Misa, if not for yourself, then do it for me. Please.” He gave her a meaningful look.

Misa bit her lip and tears formed at the corners of her eyes. “Raito loves Misa so much!” She ran over and pecked him on the cheek. Then she made her way out of the building, tears of joy streaming down her face, and headed for the movie theatre.

“You sure got rid of her quick,” L said, and walked towards Raito.

“Her whining was getting on my nerves.” Raito explained. His shirt was unbuttoned and peeled away from his lethargic limbs. He blinked twice. “You’ve got to be kidding. It’s too hot for this.”

“Nonsense. We’re already hot and sweaty.”

“Ha, so you suggest why not be hot and sweaty together?”

“Sharp as ever, I see.”

Suffice to say L did a good job of getting Raito’s mind off of the heat.

(Note: The next day, L announced that he had Watari fix the AC and this time, he actually turned it on.)

Uwah~ I am so amused. Hahaha this is awesome.

Raito! Foiled by a typo spelling mistake! XDDD; He really should be more careful. XD;

...okay, after writing that, I just realized the title of the drabble is typo. XD; *headdesk*

and since L stayed, Raito stayed. And where Raito was, Misa would be. *coughunfortunatelycough*

* :O at the note * Sneaky sneaky L! But it's ingenius really. *snicker* I'm sure the AC will mysteriously malfunction whenever they want some alone time. >__>;; hahahha

Much <3 for this. XP

Hurray first comment! XD; If I were Raito, I'd be pretty irritated if I didn't get someone because I spelt their name wrong. ~___~ Since, y'know, I'm supposed to be a genius or something, haha. XD;

L's very crafty. That's why we love him. ♥ And it almost may be because of his many, many quirks. XD

....replying at school, unfortunately. I have to do something at lunch, and I thought there was early morning Chem, but the teacher never showed. v___v But yeah, I'll see you around then. ^^;

Eeeeeeeeeeee. REN. I am laughing all over the place here and I am TOTALLY going to make you write more DN (and SD, ohoho). ♥♥

I love them both so much. L and Raito "watching TV" but not really, because it would be something like that. Raito being foiled by a typo is just priceless and you did it so well.

And I LOVE MISA. I love the way Raito gets rid of her and I love L being sneaky about the AC. Anything to strip Raito down... XD

Yes, and of course this line:

had me rolling in my seat, snickering.

♥ I love so much.

SD drabble next, I think. XD Or maybe I'll do Hunter x Hunter.

Everyone makes mistakes. ^__~ (Hence why he ends up dead by 107/108 >__>)

And don't you just love how Matsuda's always the lapdog? No wait, I was going to have him out to bring back ice cream in the second, but I figured he was already abused enough. That, and the ice cream would melt anyway. XP

Yay, I'm glad you like it!! It was a good way to start off my re-entry into fandom. XDD;

I mean, I'm not SD trying to SD influence your decision SD in any way. Why would you SD SD SD think that? XD;;

Oh fandom, you are so much fun. ♥

XDD!! The first one was great -- god, I love how the mindtwists and the "does he know that I know that he knows?" never stop -- but the second is what really killed me, what with the cameos of Raito's prep clothes and Misa being Misa ("then do it for me, please" ♥) and HA. Perfect solution for getting your mind off the temperature, there.

XDDD; Glad you liked~! The three of them (Misa, Raito, and L) together are so fun to write. XP


You should put in a request (it's about...4 posts back?). I'll get to it eventually, and it's really good practice for me. ♥

I haven't laughed this much at a DN fic for ages! *twirls you around* You and your wonderful DN fics! *bounces*

Raito screwing up because of a typo! The poor guy. *snickers* Also yay for the mention of Matsuda! *adores him* He's like Taka from TeniPuri (without the racket)-- he's too nice.

For some strange reason, Raito wanted to know the name of that liar of a meteorologist. <-- *am incredibly amused*

There was no persuading him, and since L stayed, Raito stayed. And where Raito was, Misa would be. That's so true.

♥ No one writes DN quite like you!~ That makes me happy!

Doesn't Matsuda become, I dunno, cooler after chapter 60? That is another reason why I love the pre-60 days. XD;

Yay, thanks for reading. ^^ It makes me happy that you're happy. XDD

Thanks for the compliment. XD; Hopefully with the DN anime coming out, my writing muses'll attack me again.
