firm_detective: (18th century)
L returns to his room, still clothed in attire from the turn of the 19th century; there's some urgency in his manner. He closes and locks the door behind him, makes his way to the sofa, and sits down, propping his elbows on his knees and supporting his forehead in his hands.

"Misa? We have to talk -- now, please."

::Turning from where she had been washing her hands at the sink, she eyes his clothing and smiles, dispite the urgency in his tone::

Of course...a room give you those clothes?

::After quickly drying her hands, she crosses the room to him, taking a seat next to him, her expression now a bit worried::

What happened?

Date: 2009-02-05 04:38 pm (UTC)From: [identity profile] firm-detective.livejournal.com
Yes -- do you remember the one that made you a ghost, and me a clown? The same room reappeared today.

*His tone becomes ironic, and he lifts his eyebrows.*

Someone disapproves of my clothing.

*The suggestion of humor disappears, then.*

Misa, it had an interesting effect on some of the Lights I spoke to -- in one way or another, it acted on them like the Truth Room would.

Date: 2009-02-05 08:12 pm (UTC)From: [identity profile] misamisal.livejournal.com
Oh yeah, I remember that one.

::she styfles a laugh, smiling, but the humor disappears when his does::

Really? ::seeing the graveness of his demenor, she can only guess who it must have acted upon::
It acted upon the Light you fought with before, didn't it?

*She receives a long look, then a sigh.*

Yes. My own conversation with him was nothing out of the ordinary. His conversation with Mel, though, was different; he revealed some of his plans.

Warning people is now necessary.

::she sighs, slimping slightly::
I just knew he had something up his sleeve.
I don't understand it though, what does he think he can accomplish while he's here? Is it really just to make himself feel powerful?

Date: 2009-02-06 04:18 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] firm-detective.livejournal.com
Perhaps. It might be revenge for particular slights -- the threats themselves are specific enough.

You're one of his intended targets.

::she chuckles a bit darkly:: I knew it!
::She shakes her head, then turns to L::
What is he intending to do? Also, who else is a target?

Date: 2009-02-06 04:55 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] firm-detective.livejournal.com
To begin with, he plans to put an end to our relationship, but -- it's more than that.

Before he killed the other Light, a while ago, he tested the paper from the Death Note on the blind Near. It didn't work; I do not know if he's done there. Some other people he mentioned were that Light, Mel, Mail, Sayu -- Mikami.

Date: 2009-02-08 09:44 pm (UTC)From: [identity profile] misamisal.livejournal.com
::softly, she takes his hand::
I thought as much. What else? He likely has some sort of special punishment for me, hmm?
::She shakes her head::
We can't let him do that. Mel and Mail I can see why because like us they're against him. In many of the world, Near wins in the end, perhaps Mikami makes a mistake? But, why Sayu? She's his sister, what has she possible done?!
::she sounds a little upset at the idea of Light harming his own family. they love himso much, how could he do such a horrible thing?::

Date: 2009-02-09 01:22 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] firm-detective.livejournal.com
*A mirthless chuckle.*

Yes -- although I'm not sure what it entails. He said that after you and I were separated, he would "make you pay"; Mel and I both believe it's because he sees you as having been disloyal to the Light from your world.

*Without conscious intent to do so, he begins to stroke the back of her hand with his fingertips.*

I believe I can answer your other questions. Mikami had supplied Light with a small amount of Death Note paper. He burned the remainder of what he had a while ago -- some time before I was sent home, around the time that my double attacked me in the kitchen. Mikami and I met at the room with the mistletoe, because it had a fireplace. Although it was voluntary on his part, I also asked Mel to meet us there, and to bring her gun.

I am always surprised by how ordinary it is, Misa. When he tossed it into the fire, it burned just like any other paper.

It's a similar story with Sayu. Soon after her arrival, she asked me for a meeting: she wanted to know how to turn her brother in without serious risk to either of their lives. I advised her not to approach him with this idea, but -- if he knows, she must not have listened.

Still, it seems possible that he is more reluctant to hurt her than the others he mentioned.

::Gently, she begins to stroke his fingers when he brings to stroke her hand::

Make me pay, hmm? We'll see about that. But, he is dead. Can a dead person feel pain? If I were to claw his arm, would he bleed? It's a little difficult to formulate a plan against someone who may not feel anything physically. I wonder if he can even sleep, if cloroform would work on him...

Mikami seems like a good person. I don't think he has ever meant to do anything wrong, really.

Really? That's good. Sayu really looks up to him and I don't think she would want to betray him, though I can't see her going along with his plans either.

Date: 2009-02-10 12:46 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] firm-detective.livejournal.com
I have seen him feel pain -- and bleed. Yes. Still, a physical attack should not be your first plan: it would give him a reason to lash out against you, and it's more likely to end in you being injured.

You should be on your guard, instead.

*He stops stroking the back of her hand, and goes back to holding it.*

-- I don't think Light is wrong in assuming that Mikami would be easy to destroy in a psychological sense.

::Her resolve is strong, but her words are soft::
I will. I'll make sure to keep an eye out for him and anyone he's targeting as well.

::She pauses after his statement, but then nods, a sad expression her face::
I agree, especially since he already has ties to Kira in his world. It's likely he already has the eyes.

Date: 2009-02-12 04:56 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] firm-detective.livejournal.com
By "keep an eye out for," Misa, I hope you mean "take pains to avoid." Your safety is the most important thing in this -- more than anything else.

*He pulls back a little to look at her; at the same time, he feels the constriction around his body fading away, and realizes he's back in his normal clothing again.*

That's better -- I can turn my head all the way to the side, now.

I believe that Mikami's wavering loyalties have not been kind to his psyche -- it is a crisis of faith. If he no longer believes Light to be divine, then he has to live with what he has done on more human terms.

Date: 2009-02-12 05:02 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] misamisal.livejournal.com
Yes, of course. "Keep and eye out" meant that if I see him, I can manage to avoid him before he sees me.
::she smiles softly at the fact that he feels her safety is the most important thing in this situation.::

Hmm...yes, that would be difficult. Believing that you're personally doing something in God's name, because God has asked you too, then finding out who you thought was God was simply a human...that must be rather shocking. It must be difficult; it'll probably take quite a bit of time for him to come to terms with the things he's done.

Date: 2009-02-12 05:06 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] firm-detective.livejournal.com
*A sigh, and then hesitation, and then -- *

Misa, I don't think he is interested in coming to terms with the things he's done. If he is interested, I think he may still be unable to do it.

::She hesitates a moment, then sighs::
I see. It's that bad for him then?

Date: 2009-02-12 05:31 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] firm-detective.livejournal.com
To my knowledge, it is. He's an intelligent man, but he seems to live under an unusual amount of tension.

Date: 2009-02-17 12:23 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] misamisal.livejournal.com
I see. Perhaps, maybe we could talk with him? Try to steer him clear of being dominated? It may not be easy, but, we might be able to warn him.

Date: 2009-02-17 01:49 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] firm-detective.livejournal.com
It depends on what he thinks Yagami's current approximate level of divinity is. If he's "God" -- then, no -- Mikami is fanatical. If he's in a state of doubt -- he may consider listening, at least until the next time he thinks Yagami is God.

*He looks annoyed by this situation.*
