A Death Note/Yami No Matsuei crossover
Prologue, Part II
“God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. Yet his shadow still looms. How shall we comfort ourselves, the murderers of all murderers? What was holiest and mightiest of all that the world has yet owned has bled to death under our knives: who will wipe this blood off us? What water is there for us to clean ourselves?”
The small footsteps of the servant Watson echoed like scattering pebbles across the castle floor. He struggled to keep up with the long strides of the furious intruder, who had just at this moment burst through the front doors.
“Yagami-san! You may not enter without permission!”
The petite flames on some of the castle’s candles flickered dangerously as Light stormed past them.
The Count nearly dropped his cup of Darjeeling as Light barged into his dining hall. His mask refracted dozens of delicate candle-lights a
Gosh how I love council tax and instant ramen and worrying about making rent. If I wasn't clinging to the hope that poverty in youth is one of the base ingredients one needs to alchemise success later on, I'd probably be running around kicking everyone in the shins right now. Come, like, mid-late December I will be cool again, but right now I am fucking sweating. My next paycheck is going to be meagre as balls and I am hoping a sob story and a partial payment to my gruff yet trustworthy landlord will be enough to not get me kicked out til I can pay the balance.
So I think I stumbled across a character even lamer than Bella Swan: I tried to get through "The Mysteries of Udolpho" because it's supposed to be a landmark novel of the romantic period. The plot isn't bad and Mrs Radcliffe can turn a pretty phrase. But EMILY. FUCKING. ST AUBERT. Every two pages she has to cry over something and write lame poetry filled with clichéd classical allegories. I can see now why Jane Austen felt compelled to write "Northanger Abbey", I'm sure in her time there were legions of bimboes running around pretending to be a Radcliffe heroine, truly Regency-era Twi-hards. For the love of god, give me a Victorian heroine like Mina Murray or Jane Eyre any day, they are total badasses. I am reading "Catcher in the Rye" now just to get the taste out of my mouth.
Also as well as obsessing indecently over Death Note I am all asdfghjhfuidlnyfbyrw over South Park ATM for some reason. Maybe cuz the fandom (or what I've seen of it) just seems to be MADE OF AWESOME and all the pretty art and cute stories and amusing cosplay and cute ship names ("Style", "Candy", "Bunny", "K2", "Creek") OMFG I can't
I have been trying to write and draw but I am just completely dry at the moment. It took me a week to write one paragraph of the next chapter of "Flame". A WEEK. Hooray, I fail.
Perhaps I should be focusing more of my energy on trying to stay alive and not having to live on ramen. *considers donating organs*
