Chapter 1: Sacrifice
Anime: Death Note
Pairing: L x Light
Author's Note: This fic not only follows the story line very closely, but it elaborates on a lot of what's unsaid. This is because I'm a person who enjoys filling in the gaps. However, it's more beautiful to me if it's real and genuine, which is why I observed the characters very carefully to make this as true to Death Note as possible. I do have a bias though I'm inclined towards BL/shonen-ai/yaoi/slash...whatever it is you call it. I'm writing this out of a belief that L and Light have some positive feelings for each other and that these could win over the negative in the end. Forgiveness is one of the principles of soft-heartedness, after all. This chapter though is about sacrifice. I hope you enjoy reading the rain scene in all of its delicious details! Cheers!
