Changing that is a go.

Hello, guys. I'm new to Death Note fandom (I never knew a community like this existed in RP, let alone for L), and just started playing L around a month ago.

So far I've apped him into two different games, and surprisingly the one I was initially drawn to ended up not being a very good match for him. The game was very srs bsns, which I enjoy, and was also home to a number of wonderful, wonderful players. Looking at it from the outside, not having played L before this, I thought it was what I was looking for. The funny thing is when I actually got around to playing L there, it felt like I was doing everything wrong. My playing was awkward, sort of all over the place, not at all like I felt L was supposed to be.

And then, through playing in a dressing room setting, I found a wonderful Light player who I clicked with very well. Long story short, I ended up apping into that Light's game as well (which also had a number of canon mates for L to play with) and the opposite happened: everything I had L do, I felt I was spot on. The funny thing is, looking at the game premise, if I had looked at this game without previously threading with that Light, I wouldn't have given it another thought. It isn't nearly as srs bsns as I like and the central plot didn't seem too engaging to me. And yet, I ended up dropping from the first game and continue to play in the second, where L has continued to do well.

So I suppose my question is, are there any settings you think your L wouldn't do well in?

For mine, it's more of a survival type game, where he is absolutely alone and has no means of defense. I suppose I put a lot of stock into the relationship L has with Watari, who he's had about since he was eight (if we're going by AN, which I tend to do) to take care of his every whim. L is very much a spoiled child, and while he is very much a serious character who deals with serious matters, my experience with him in a setting that threatens his life in a very physical way just wasn't working out. If you ask me, L is sheltered in the sense that while he deals with life and death matters as a career, very rarely does he have anything to fear. To deal with situations in which he feels fear, L runs and he runs very far. He hides in his little hidey hole with Watari feeding him cake and a computer screen between him and those he's working with. So in the game I had him in, which was very fear-based, L didn't do well.

Aaaand enough tl;dr. Thoughts?

Hi L's. Something fun to mull over.

The Sherlock Holmes revival made me wonder...

What does your L think about the notorious fictional icon? What do you think about L versus Holmes?


And then if this piques your interest, you must read harleycooper's essay that hooked me well over a year ago: http://harleycooper.livejournal.com/25698.html

Really, I've just been looking for an excuse to pimp that.

Your L-isms!

Hello, L's. Question~

What kind of music does your L like?
Mine finds Enya soothing.

What kind of odd quirks has your L developed outside of his canon eccentricities?

What is your L's song, be it his or the song that makes you think of him?
Mine's would probably be "Take Me With You" by Tori Amos and "Justice" by Josh Kelley.

Discussion time:

Those of you who have an L-What sort of setting do you play him in and how have you gotten him involved in the game? L's involvement is often one of the harder aspects of playing him.

Those of you who want to play an L-What sort of setting would you LIKE to play him in? Do you have plans or do you intend to take things as they come?


L - Go Die

Layouts?

Hello, everyone. <3 I'm new to the community, but I have to say, I've been looking for something like this for AGES. Haha!

Anyways, on to the reason I posted.

Eeeeeverywhere I go, I find L icons. They are amazing, and I love them to death.

But I can't find an L layout for my charjournal. I've seen them around, and wandered over to where they were credited, but there was nothing even remotely L-ish to be seen!

Does anyone know where I might be able to find one? I'll adore you for an eternity! <33


EDIT!!!: Does anyone know where to locate a good 'do not want' L icon? I've found this one. But... the last uber-famous L on the site used that, so... ^_^;

Profile review.

Current Mood: confusedconfused
Just curious I don't know if this is allowed but can I have some reviews on my profile I am writing. Don't mind the grammar mistakes just the main body of it. I'll be editing the grammar mistakes later. I have major problems in writing profiles so this is a huge attempt to try and make it look half-way decent.

I am sorry if this isn't allowed but I really need some help. I will move it if it isn't allowed.

How many of you kids play L in more than one location? Have you ever found that his characterization changes slightly in accordance to his surroundings/game setting?

I've played him in a few places, mostly smaller games and the one big one (where I first started playing him) and I definitely have "felt" the muse's temperament change in accordance to setting. I find the more different the setting is from his canon, the more curious he is and he actually has a small amount of modesty if the setting is a horror setting. Once he gets used to his surroundings, his pride starts to resurface again.

And I am not explaining this well. So...Your turns now!
