Chapter Selector

Before you read this, there are a few things you should know in advance so you don’t have to waste your time if you don’t want to.

First of all, I wrote this fanfic in second person (example: “You sipped your tea.”) If that bothers you, then stop right here.

Secondly, this fanfic is going to be explicit—as in sex. Originally I was going to try to filter it so that the reader could skip over it and just get on with the story… But, as I later found out, that was quite impossible. It wasn’t that I couldn’t; it was that the scenes were too important to the development to the plot, and there were just too many of them!

Thirdly, the chapters are inconsistent in length. The first chapter is—on average—longer than most of the others. As I continue to write, I find myself making the chapters longer… and longer… and longer.

Lastly, I already have a few chapters typed up, but the rest remains in my notebook. I’m planning to post one chapter every Friday. As of today, (Sunday July 26, 2009) this story is not finished. I can end it at any time; I have my plot planned out already. Based on the comments I get, if any, I may change the ending around a bit.

There are three things in the world of fanfic that drive me absolutely crazy… And on the top of my list are authors not posting on time (hence me posting a chapter a week). I’ll do my best to keep up with that. Second on my list of things that drive me crazy comes bad spelling and punctuation. I think I did pretty well with that. The last thing that drives me crazy is plain, old, bad writing. This is my second fanfic, and I’m new to writing. It is for these reasons that I apologize in advance if my fanfic happens to be epic suckage. I know how frustrating it is when you come across a fanfic you want to read, and then it just totally sucks.


Maisy (not my real name)

[Chapter One]

[Note: I wrote all of the rules of the death note down in this chapter. If you are already familiar with the rules of the death note, PLEASE skip that part. When a particular rule comes into play or has an impact in the plot, it will be quoted.]

September 10th, 2007:

You were walking home from school like any other day, thinking about your life. You were 11, and had blonde hair and blue eyes.

Turning, you stopped on the bridge to look out at the river. You had lived in Japan for a year now, and in that time had perfected your Japanese. Before you moved, you had come from America. Before that, England; you had been born in London. Your father did a lot of traveling, and you enjoyed moving from place to place. Your thoughts were interrupted when you saw a book fall into the river.

‘What was that?!’

It hit the water, pretty close to a small beach. It was close enough for you to reach out and grab it—if only you were on the beach. You sighed, as curiosity got the better of you. You walked down past the bridge and recovered the notebook with a stick. You looked up at the sky.

‘No planes?’

Using your handkerchief, you picked up the soaking book, and started back home.

‘How bizarre,’ you thought, walking into your house. You went straight to the kitchen, and set the book on a tray. Using a hand towel, you managed to dry the pages.

‘The ink didn’t smear?’

You thumbed through the book. A few of the pages had been written on. You went to the fridge, got a snack, and settled down on the couch with the notebook. Skipping back to the beginning, you were shocked to see… a page of… rules?

This is a death note. This notebook belongs to a shinigami.

‘No way.’

You reconsidered it, and read the first rules.

Concerning using the notebook to kill:

If a person’s name is written in this notebook by an individual that knows that person’s face, that person will die. If the cause of death is not specified, the person will die of a heart attack.If the time of death is not specified, the person will die after 40 seconds of their name being written.Actions of the person before the death must be written 6 minutes and 40 seconds of the time and name being written.

’If I’m found with this, the police will think that I’m some sort of crazy terrorist!’

You went up to the attic with the notebook and a plastic bag. Nobody ever went into the attic. You sealed the notebook in the bag, and leaned out the attic window. Lifting a shingle, you pushed the bag under the roofing. Relieved, you went downstairs to watch TV and do your homework. When you finished, you made yourself some dinner; your dad wouldn’t be home until much later. You thought about the book. What would happen if it were actually real? It was strange that it had fallen out of the sky like that. No planes or helicopters passing over either. Had someone thrown it? But why would someone throw it into the river? Unless… No. It wasn’t real. You refused to believe it was real. Someone had found it before you, and done the right thing: tossed it into the river. But that would mean… the person who threw it would have seen you retrieve it! No. Stop. This was getting ridiculous.

“This is ridiculous,” you said out loud, reassuring yourself. “This is ridiculous,” you repeated.

“No it isn’t.”

You whirled around. Who the hell was that?! You turned slowly. Nothing you had ever done before could have prepared you for this. “No!” the thing cried, shielding it’s face. You moved closer, trying to get a better view.

“…Don’t look at me…” it whispered, turning. It—whatever it was—was obviously spooked.

“It’s okay…” you said, gently pulling one of it’s hands down. “Shhh…” You didn’t have the slightest clue as to what this thing could be, but you knew that the faster you soothed it, the faster you would find out. Wrapping your arms around it, you pulled it close to you and tried again. “Shh… Shh…shhhhhh.”

It finally put it’s hands down.

“Come sit down, and we can talk everything over,” you said, trying to be as comforting and reassuring as possible.

Finally, the sobs ceased, and the thing sat. You asked the question that was undoubtedly bothering you the most.

“What are you?”

“A shinigami.”

“A God of death?!” Well you certainly weren’t expecting that. “…. Why are you here?”

The shinigami burst into sobs again.

“Shhhh! It’s okay. If I have to die now, I’m ready for it.”

“I’m not here to take your life…” he said, looking up. He continued. “The notebook that you found today is one of mine.”

“Oh. Do you want it back?”

“No! Every shinigami has a death note… the death note that you have used to belong to another shinigami. I still have my own. I wanted you to have it. The shinigami that it used to belong to died for you.”

“What?” You were completely confused. “But…. Wh- wh- Why are you giving it to me?”

“Because I wanted to meet you.”

“Wanted to meet me?”

“I’ve been watching you from the shinigami realm for a while now.” He looked as if he was going to cry again. You didn’t know what to think. “…What’s your name?” was all you could come up with.

“Isamu.” He said.

“Now that you’ve met me… Isamu…. Are you going to kill me?”

“Ohno, I couldn’t poss— I mean—I…” He started to cry again.

“No…! Please don’t cry!”

“Do you think I’m hideous?”

“What? ….No! What counts is on the inside.”

“Okay,” he said, “The reason I came here was to watch over you. I didn’t want anything to happen to you.”

You were speechless for a moment.

“…I’m in… some sort of danger?”

“… Not exactly.”

“So you came here to meet and protect me? But why? You’re a God of death!”

His eyes darted back and forth.

“I’m going to tell you a secret. But you can’t tell anyone else!” You quickly nodded. “The world I live in has become boring. A dump! All anyone does is sit around and gamble. If you write names in your death note, the other shinigami will just poke fun at you and accuse you of working too hard. The only reason a shinigami writes a name is to lengthen it’s own life. We don’t even see the point in our own existence anymore. All we can do is shorten the life of humans… So I had nothing to lose by coming here. I’ve watched you everyday for the past 4 years. I want nothing more than to be in your presence.”

“I—I…” you stammered. “I can’t believe this is happening.”

Suddenly, you heard your dad’s car pulling into the driveway.

“Isamu! You have to hide!”

He looked away.

“Only people that have touched your death note can see me.”

“And that applies to your voice too?”

“He won’t know I’m here.”


The door opened.

“Hey sweetie… it’s 3AM? You’re usually in bed by now. Isn’t it a school night?”

“I couldn’t sleep,” you lied.

“Alright… well I’m off to bed,” he said, trudging upstairs.

You walked to the downstairs bathroom with Isamu close behind. You hadn’t realized that he was only the size of a small child. Isamu locked the door behind you.

“Just in case,” he said.

“But I never lock doors…”

“Yeah, I wish you would.”

You remembered that he had been watching you for 4 years. ‘He must know everything about me,’ you thought, as you watched him examine the bar of soap. You sat down in the dry bathtub.

“Isamu, tell me about shinigami.”

He explained about each one having a distinct personality, and how they had a king, and rules that even they had to live by.

“What about the realms? Is there only a shinigami world and a human world?”

“As far as I know, the human world is the only one that we have a link to. Others might exist.”

“Okay Isamu. Let’s go sleep. I’m tired. Do you sleep?”

“I can, but I don’t need to. Same goes for eating and drinking.”

You walked out of the bathroom.

“Here, have a grape,” you said, plucking a grape out of the fridge for him. When your hands touched, he felt neither warm nor cold. He took a small nibble of the grape, and then ate it.

“Food isn’t this delicious in our world.”

“Isamu? What would someone watching that grape see if you ate it in front of them?”

“Well,” he said, “it would float so long as it was in my hand… when I ate it, it would have disappeared. A few of the great magicians levitated people that way.”

“I see…”

“Granted, not all magicians possess a death note, let alone a shinigami. I’m the only one in the human realm at the moment.”

“What about unexplainable things then…? Ghosts?”

“Probably some shinigami getting a laugh.”


“A shinigami, perhaps shinigami eyes.”

“Shinigami eyes?”

“I wrote about them in the death note.”

“Are there any rules not written in the death note?”

“I wrote all the ones I know of. Fake rules can be written, but all the ones in the death note I gave you are true.”

You got up, and dashed up to the attic to retrieve the notebook. Isamu followed. You sat down on your bed with Isamu to read the rules again.

Concerning using the notebook to kill:
1. The human that uses this notebook to kill will go to neither heaven nor hell.
2. The human whose name is written in this note will die, so long as the writer knows his victim’s face. This is to avoid confusion amongst people sharing the same name.
3. If the cause of death is not specified, the person will die of a heart attack.
4. If the time of death is not specified, the person will die after 40 seconds of their name being written.
5. Actions of the person before the death must be written 6 minutes and 40 seconds of the time and name being written.
6. This notebook can belong to more than one human, it is bound to whomever touches it.
7. This notebook is not effective on humans younger than 649 days old.
8. This notebook will not take effect if someone dies before the time specified.
9. If the name is misspelled more than four times on the same note, it is rendered useless on that person.
10. If the same name is written on two different death notes within 40 seconds, the death note will not take effect.
11. Things that are physically impossible will not take place as actions before death. The person will still die at the time specified.
12. All actions before death must be reasonable to work. In other words, a human will not carry out actions that they wouldn’t normally carry out because it is written in a death note.
13. If details of actions before death are not specific, the victim will execute the actions in whichever way is most convenient.
14. Humans can use the notebook to shorten or end their own lives.
15. If by chance the death caused by a death note influences and causes more than one human to die, the humans not written in the death note will die of heart attacks.
16. All humans will eventually die. The place they go after they die is called “nothingness”.

Concerning ownership and loans:
1. Once a human touches a death note, they will recognize the image and voice of the shinigami it belongs to, even if they are not owner of the death note.
2. The person in possession of the death note will be possessed by the shinigami to which it belongs until ownership of the death note is relinquished, or until they die.
3. Ownership of this notebook can be relinquished at any time. All it requires is the human saying the words “I hereby relinquish ownership of this death note.”
4. When ownership is relinquished, all memories of the notebook will disappear. In addition, it should be noted that the time of death is only seen above a human’s head if they have no memories of using a death note to kill, i.e. if the death note is relinquished, the time of death will reappear above the human’s head until they use another death note to kill.
5. If the original owner of the notebook dies while it is in another human’s possession, the ownership of the notebook will be transferred to the person whom it’s possession it is in at the time of the owner’s death.
6. The god of death the notebook is from will not follow the borrower of the notebook. The god of death always remains with the owner of the notebook.
7. The borrower cannot make the shinigami eyesight deal.
8. The borrower’s former memories, if any, will not be restored upon touching the notebook. The memories will only return if ownership is granted to them again.

Concerning Shinigami:
1. If a human uses a shinigami’s death note, a shinigami usually appears in front of that human within 39 days of the human using the death note. If they don’t appear within 39 days, it can be generally assumed that the shinigami either has no knowledge of their death note being in the human realm, or, is dead.
2. A shinigami will not die by means regular to a human.
3. Shinigami can see the names and time of death for every human that has not used a death note to kill. In addition, they can see the names of other shinigami.
4. God’s of death extend their own lives by using their own death notes to kill humans. In return, the remaining time left in the human’s life is added to the lifespan of the shinigami. This transaction will not take place between humans that use the death note.
5. The only known way for a shinigami to die is if that shinigami intervenes with that which is fated by extending a human’s life intentionally using a death note. If this should occur, the remainder of the shinigami’s lifespan will be added to the human’s lifespan.
6. Should a shinigami die, their death note will be the only thing left. In addition, their death note will not lose its power.
7. A trade can be made between shinigami and humans: For half of the human’s remaining lifespan, the human can gain the eyes of a shinigami, i.e. that human can see the names of shinigami and other humans, as well as the time of death for any human that has not used a death note to kill.
8. Shinigami generally do not help or prevent the deaths in the note.
9. Shinigami have no obligation to explain anything about a death note to a human.


Isamu got up and sat on top of your desk, watching you.

“Goodnight, Isamu!” you said, flipping off the light.

“Good night,” he said.

November 13, 2007:

You had known Isamu three months when Kira emerged.

“Someone used their death note…”

Isamu nodded.

It was a sunny afternoon when you heard that a criminal had died of a heart attack on the spot. ‘Maybe it was just too much for him,’ you thought. You hadn’t been too skeptical. When 3 others dropped dead though, you knew that someone was using a death note. You researched where the criminals had been residing and narrowed it down to the Kanto region in Japan. That was scary close to where you were… within 15 miles, to be exact.

“Isamu. The first three criminals died at night and on weekends. That means that they are either a student or a teacher. Please find him. Watch and see who goes through the doors of every school in the Kanto region. There aren’t too many. That’s our best bet.”

Two days later, Isamu returned.

“His name is Light Yagami. His dad is a police chief, and he also lives with his mother and sister. He is getting names of criminals through the police database from his dad’s computer.”

You nodded. Isamu extended a scrap of paper.

“His death note. His shinigami goes by the name Ryuk.”

You touched it, and then taped it into your own death note, labeling it ‘Ryuk’.

“Isamu. I want the eyes.”

He looked at you for a moment, and then nodded. Your vision got blurry for a second, and when you refocused, you saw his name appear above his head. You turned on the TV and watched in amazement as names and numbers appeared over everyone’s heads.

“Hmm… Isamu? The rule about heaven and hell doesn’t apply to me, does it?”

He thought about this for a moment.

“No. It doesn’t. You haven’t killed anyone with this death note.”

You smiled.

“Isamu? Can you please go locate L? If you can’t find him within a week, come back.”

“I’ll leave now.”

You hugged him, and waved your farewell from your window. Isamu was your best friend.
