Peer Mentor

sunmoonandspoon: (Playing with your heart)
Title: Peer Mentor
Author: [livejournal.com profile] speaky_bean
Characters: Light, Mikami, mentions of their respective families, multiple OCs.
Written For: [livejournal.com profile] the_gabih, with the prompt "academics". She wanted the main characters to be Light and Mikami. This was for [livejournal.com profile] dn_contest's second annual Secret Santa event.
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 5,505
Notes: In this story, Light and Mikami go to the same high school, due to Mikami being kept out of school after his mother dies, and due to canon not specifying where he lived as a child, only where he lives as an adult. Being older than Light, Mikami is assigned to be his peer mentor--their discussions range from the dimensions of the classrooms (which Mikami considers to be vitally important) to how one balances school and having a life. This story also deals with a lot of neurosis on Mikami's part.

Kimura-sensei tells Teru that this is the year that he’s going to admit that he misses his mother. He also tells him, while running his greasy, crinkled fingers through his gray, thinning hair, that this is the year he’s finally going to make a friend. )

Title: Has a Face
Author: [livejournal.com profile] speaky_bean
Characters/Pairings: L, B, A.
Rating: R
Word Count: 3,715
Notes: I got this idea from an RP-sequence I had with my sister [livejournal.com profile] ich_bin_puppy. I decided I really liked the idea and ought to expand on it. What started off as a simple hallucination caused by L’s profound lack of sleep turned into a nightmare where he finds himself being accused by A’s corpse of killing him, and then being physically and mentally assaulted by B. This is by far one of the strangest things I’ve written in a long time. The language includes a lot of bizarre metaphors and similes, and reality is rather tenuous here. I would call this a hallucination/psychological portrait, and I would not say that it makes perfect sense. This is very experimental for me, so I hope it turned out well! This was written for week #81 - hallucination, at [livejournal.com profile] dn_contest.
Warnings: This gets very gory and graphic in parts. I did a lot of research on how to accurately describe the victim of hanging, and I was shuddering as I wrote some of this. Please keep that in mind!

And so, everything beautiful that L has ever done caused A to die. And so, this noxious beast hanging from the rafters belongs to L. He may as well have tied the noose himself. )

Title: Ancient, Wobbly and Crippled
Authors: [livejournal.com profile] speaky_bean
Characters: Near, L
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 571
Notes: I’ve never written anything from Near’s POV before, so I hope it doesn’t come out too badly. It’s about Near’s view of the timing of L’s death—perhaps it really was best that L never grow old. Note that Near's views about old age do not necessarily reflect my own! Written for week #73 at [livejournal.com profile] dn_contest, for the prompt "old age".

He had been strong where Near was weak, but which one of them found Kira? Which one of them is still alive? )

Title: Three Mothers
Authors: [livejournal.com profile] speaky_bean
Characters/Pairings: Sachiko, Ms. Mikami, OC (Mello’s mother), their children
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 959
Notes: I haven't participated in [livejournal.com profile] dn_contest in a while, but I had some free time recently and thought I should. Anyway, I’m sure none of you are particularly surprised, but this story is about mothers. Sachiko, Ms. Mikami, and Mello’s mother are all waiting for their sons to come home. These three women approach the subject very differently. Anyway, enjoy!

Of course I miss you—I always miss you, every moment you’re not with me I do. )
sunmoonandspoon: (Light Is Over There Guess What Look)
Title: A Learning Experience
Authors: [livejournal.com profile] speaky_bean
Characters/Pairings: Kiyomi, Teru, Light, Misa, Light/Misa, Kiyomi/Teru, various OCs (their children).
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 2,239
Notes: This is a story set in the same future AU as another fic of mine called Leaf, and it deals with a future in which Light won, and he tried to set up families so that there would be pro-Kira children. He has four daughters with Misa (one called L, who he insists wear jeans and a white shirt and eat nothing but cake), and Kiyomi and Teru have a daughter and a son. The son is anti-Kira, and Light is willing to go to somewhat extreme lengths to teach him some respect.
Warnings: Light is a bit more of an asshole here than I think he is in canon. I personally believe that achieving his goals would warp his personality significantly, so this is IC in the context by my judgment. I’m not sure how others will feel about it, but I did my best.

'Did you alter the list of people who need deleting? I mean, you’re really not a very good evil dictator if you haven’t got Jews on there, so you’d better get on that, Yagami. Hitler would be spinning in his grave.' )

Title: An Elephant Never Forgets
Authors: [livejournal.com profile] speaky_bean
Characters/Pairings: Near, Linda, L, Multiple OCs (Orphans from Wammy’s House, and members of L’s family.) One-sided Linda/OC, and possible Near/Linda if you squint.
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 2,170
Summary: A few of the orphans who remain alive after L’s death get together to watch a home movie they dug up of L as a child, and they struggle with the concept of L as a human being instead of a golden idol. Written for week #57 at [livejournal.com profile] dn_contest, 'caught on tape'.
Warnings: This story deals with maternal death, so if that bothers you might want to skip the ending.

His hands, which before his death were used primarily for typing and balancing sugar cubes, were once used to beat one alphabet block against another, and his voice, so eloquent and deadpan before it was cut off altogether, must once have consisted solely of words like ‘mommy’, ‘kitty’, and ‘cookie’. )

Title: Mom, Tea
Authors: [livejournal.com profile] speaky_bean
Characters: Sachiko, Light, Misa. The rest of the Yagami family gets a few brief mentions.
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 961
Notes: For this prompt I decided to expand on the idea I brought up in the announcement post. This is an excerpt from Sachiko’s diary, about Light’s rude request for tea, and how she feels about it, as well as how his behavior reflects on her as a mother.

But he wasn’t polite to her, and he wasn’t polite to me, and if my carefully raised son doesn’t know how to respect women, then somewhere down the line, I failed. )

Title: The God Of Inconvenience
Author: [livejournal.com profile] speaky_bean
Characters: OC (Lamewad), The Shinigami King, Light, Sayu, Soichiro, A, Gevanni, Halle, Mello, Ryuk, Sidoh, Misa, Jealous
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 4,636
Notes: I am not completely responsible for the OC that this story focuses on. My sister [livejournal.com profile] ich_bin_puppy and I have a highly ridiculous RP that we engage in, and this OC, a death god named Lamewad (as he has been named by other death gods who don’t think highly of him), is straight from that. However, he appears in a rather different context here, one that I hope will make more sense in terms of actual canon. Lamewad is a death god who doesn’t want to be a death god—he thinks that human life is precious and he doesn’t want to end it. He obtains something called the Inconvenience Note—instead of heart attacks, it trips people. Instead of gaining lifespans he gains the time that the person is inconvenienced or hurt for. This becomes quite a bit more work than he bargained for, and he ends up having to do terrible things to people—maybe things that are worse than killing them.
Warning: I haven’t written anything in first person for about four years, so if it sounds awkward, please forgive me!

To be a god of death is to be a god of selfishness. I will not be a god of death any longer. )

Title: Pretend It’s A Movie
Author: [livejournal.com profile] speaky_bean
Characters/Pairings: Matsuda, L, Ukita, mentions of the rest of the task force and Light, Matsuda’s family which is composed entirely of OCs.
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 4,480
Summary: Matsuda’s mother is diagnosed with lung cancer, and he must deal with the conflict between his job and his family obligations.
Warnings: None, other than that the subject is inherently depressing.

Written for week #48 at [livejournal.com profile] dn_contest, the prompt being cancer.

If this were a movie, she would come to agree with you. If this were the sort of movie that you like (you love romance, laughter, happy endings), you would be right. )
sunmoonandspoon: (Siblings Light and Sayu)
Titles: Saponification
Author: [livejournal.com profile] speaky_bean
Characters/Pairings: The Yagami Family
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 1,564
Notes: This is a series of loosely connected drabbles about the Yagami family and soap. Initially I was going to have a more diverse cast of characters, but I realized that most of my ideas could apply to the members of this family, thus making this a cohesive story rather than a set of random drabbles. At least I hope it’s cohesive.
Warning: This story contains shower sex! It isn’t incredibly explicit, but enough so that I feel like I should warn for it.

Title: Tiresias the Matsuda
Authors: [livejournal.com profile] speaky_bean and [livejournal.com profile] reka
Characters: L, Light, Matsuda, Mikami, a pile of copulating snakes.
Pairings: Matsuda/Mikami, one-sided Matsuda/Light, Snake/Other Snake
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 3,206
Notes: I hadn’t originally planned to write anything for this week's prompt at [livejournal.com profile] dn_contest (that being 'mythology'), but I ended up staying over at my friend [livejournal.com profile] reka’s house, and we decided to write something together. It is total crack, and it probably doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. It’s based on the myth of Tiresias, who transforms into a woman when he throws a rock at some snakes. When he turns back using the same method, Zeus and Hera want to know who has it better in bed, men or women. We chose Matsuda to play Tiresias, L to play Zeus, and Light to play Hera.
Warnings: If you somehow didn’t guess this already, this fic contains genderswitch. It’s also extremely cracky, and while we tried to keep everyone in character (we had a lengthy discussion about what Mikami would be doing in a bar in the first place that never quite made it into the fic) there is a good chance that this is at least somewhat OOC. Also, this story contains copious amounts of beatboxing. An idea that was in no way stolen from [livejournal.com profile] shinigami_ebola.

Titles: Deadly Sins & Broken Commandments
Author: [livejournal.com profile] speaky_bean
Characters/Pairings: Matt/Mello, mentions of Near and L.
Rating: R
Word Count: 2,262
Warning: This story deals with, and makes fun of, a variety of religious beliefs, particularly Christian ones. It’s basically Matt’s interpretation of why Mello will be going to hell, so there are a lot of stupid, snarky jokes, and not a lot of reverence for the concepts being discussed. I don’t mean any offense towards anyone, and the ideas expressed here are not necessarily ones I agree with. Also, some of this may sound like Mello-bashing, but that’s not what it’s supposed to be.

We regret to inform you that your immortal soul has been condemned to Hell. )

Title: Strange. Neurotic. Burden.
Author: [livejournal.com profile] speaky_bean
Characters/Pairings: Teru/Ms. Mikami
Rating: R
Word Count: 4,350
Warnings: This is probably one of the most disturbing things I’ve written in a long time. This story contains parent-child incest, non-consensual sexual activity and a minor in a sexual situation. By minor I do not mean a teenager. I mean someone who hasn’t even hit puberty yet. If you are uncomfortable with this, please do not read. I cannot emphasize this enough. I tried my best to deal with the subject in a way I thought appropriate—meaning I did not glorify it in any way. It is written as the bad, unhealthy, damaging, terrible thing that child molestation is. However, it is written from the point of view of the perpetrator, so things get pretty skewed sometimes.

It’s also in second person. Originally it was going to be in third, but it just didn’t want to be written that way.

You should be proud that he’s so neat and well-mannered, that you don’t have to pester him to perform basic tasks. But you’re not proud and you’re not glad, because he’s not normal, and if he’s not normal then neither are you. )

Title: Kyrie
Written For: [livejournal.com profile] stakeh. The prompt was dark religious themes and the relationship between Mello and his mother, so I had some fun with that. Hearing my fiance sing Kyrie in a choral performance was a major inspiration.
Rating: PG-13
Pairings/Characters: Mello (referred to as Mihael here) and his parents.
Warnings: This contains some mangling of the Lord's prayer, and some insulting words towards religion in general issuing from Mello's father. Please note that these do not reflect my opinion on the subject.

Title: Keroppi Mittens
Author: [livejournal.com profile] speaky_bean
Characters: Teru, Light, Kiyomi, Ryuk, Nakajima.
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 3,848
Notes: Poor Teru is just so easy to be cruel to. In this story, he comes down with the chickenpox, and comes to believe that he’s going to die. Later, he runs into God. I want to thank [livejournal.com profile] hervictory for listening to me babble endlessly about this thing as I wrote it, and for letting me bounce ideas off of her. ♥ Also, this was written for prompt #36 at [livejournal.com profile] dn_contest, chickenpox.
Warning: I know that in canon, Teru actually lives in Kyoto while Light and Takada live in Tokyo. I decided to ignore that fact for this fanfic—given the distance between the two and the cost from getting from one to the other, it doesn’t even make sense for him to live there. So…they’re all in Tokyo, I suppose? Please don’t eat my brain for this.

Title: Sitting Quietly
Author: [livejournal.com profile] speaky_bean
Characters: Sachiko, Soichiro, Light Sayu, two cats named Ichigo and Strawberry.
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 2,295
Notes: If anyone can be blamed for this story, it's [livejournal.com profile] reka. We were talking about how strange it was that the Yagami family didn't have pets--it seemed like a fairly standard thing for a family with a stay-at-home mother to do. [livejournal.com profile] reka decided that it was because Soichiro was allergic to them. And thus, this story was born. In this story, Sachiko desperately wants a cat, and can't have one because her husband is allergic--but as time goes on, he becomes more and more detached from the family--and so, it doesn't really matter if she gets a cat. Soichiro isn't there, anyway.

Oh, and it was written for [livejournal.com profile] dn_contest. The theme this week is 'cat'.

She’s happy to be here, truly she is, but she’s used to being constantly blindsided by rampaging animals and younger siblings, not sitting at the kitchen table quietly sipping tea. )

Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 4,371
Notes: This is a remix of [livejournal.com profile] diluted_thought's story, If You're Happy And You Know It..., and this time around it's from the perspective of the parents instead of the kids. Hope I did the thing justice. Enjoy!

Title: In Death There Is Silence
Author: [livejournal.com profile] speaky_bean
Characters: L, Watari, brief mentions of A and B.
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 591
Notes: This is a strange little story I wrote on the bus home from school, for week #25 at [livejournal.com profile] dn_contest, silence. It was inspired by a few lines about cyanide in a Chuck Palahniuk novel. I thought about how L’s bad habits can be beneficial to him at times, and how he was probably being prodded to behave in contradictory ways throughout his training as L. I’m not sure how well it connects to the prompt, but it does deal with the possibility of L’s death, and thus, silence. I hope this makes sense. Enjoy!

They just want to find your weakness so they can slaughter you and emerge as the new L. )

Notes: This was written in a bit of a rush, and I'm not sure if it's coherent. It's about how the Yagamis have different academic standards for their respective offspring. Enjoy! Written for prompt #23 (school), at [livejournal.com profile] dn_contest

Title: Leaf
Author: [livejournal.com profile] speaky_bean
Rating: PG-13
Characters/Pairings: Teru, Light, Kiyomi, Misa, Rem, Ryuk, and several OCs. Misa/Light, Teru/Kiyomi.
Warnings: This fic is written in second person. Some people find this irritating, so I'm warning for it.
Word Count: 7,083
Notes: I've been meaning to write this fic for a very long time. It's an AU in which Kira won. Light and Misa are married with four daughters, and Kiyomi and Teru are married with a girl and a boy. In this story, Teru struggles with his devotion to God (Light) in relation to his duty to himself and his family. His God is very demanding, and his son is anti-Kira...so things aren't exactly easy for him.

This fic is dedicated to [livejournal.com profile] viola_canina...if I remember correctly, she's partially to blame for this idea. It's also written for prompt #18 at [livejournal.com profile] dn_contest, umbrella.

Maybe you're just children playing house, but your dolls are real children, your plastic dishes are ceramic, and your playroom is a brick house on its third mortgage, perched high on a hill in Yokohama. )
