Alternative Gods

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

Alternative Gods by Le KING is a Death Note Cyberpunk AU Slash Fic in which the NPA's Light Yagami grows obsessed with catching L, a hacker. To justify L's remarkable skill, Light imagines L is an AI and falls in love with the idea. Too bad L actually turns out to be an AI with some feelings for Light of his own.

Tropes used in Alternative Gods include:

L: How does Light-kun feel about death? Death, Light-kun. What is it like to die?
Light: I don't know, I haven't died yet.
L: This is a lie.
Light: (laughing): So I'm dead?
L: Mostly, yes.
Light: Really?
L: Let me ask it another way then, is Light-kun a God?
Light: Yes, I am a God.
L: But before you became a God, you were just a man. As a man, you have died, and now you are a God. So I am asking Light-kun what it is like to die.

Everyone and their mother, without a single bastardly exception, turned to downright stare at Light.

Inside his mind, Light gulped and cursed everything that existed. On the outside, he just cleared his throat.

"Clearly," Light said gravely and gestured to his left, "you must be talking about Matsuda."

At that precise moment, Matsuda's printer viciously ate ten sheets of paper at once, choked on them, and died.

Matt: Yup. N went and fucked with Japan, you don't just go and fuck with Japan. I've been telling you, man. Nobody just goes and fucks with Japan-
