Death Note Fanfiction Recommendations
Once upon a time I read every Death Note
fanfic I could find on the internet. These are my favorites
from that time. Stories written more recently than a year and

stuff is old.
Note: Fic here is
based on volumes one through seven of the Death Note manga and may
contain spoilers. All recs are oneshots unless I say
otherwise. I like Concept fics and stories with a
twisted sense of humor.
