Your L-isms!

Posted by angels_burn on 2009.03.20 at 20:45
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.

Haha I second the Alkaline Trio song. Oh how we silly muns embarrass our L's.

I'm drawing a blank with that one. I'll have to go and give it a listen~ ♥

I Want Candy? ♥

Gosh, I doubt you remember me, but we played in the same game on IJ forever ago, one based on Silent Hill which died pretty quickly.

From what I recall, on your journal for B, you had a link to L's handwriting. Was that a font, do you recall? If so, would you provide it for the rest of us?

I'm sure the community would love you forever, and I, for one, would be grateful.

Since L isn't real, of course. I just remember it being labeled as his handwriting and thought it'd be fun to use it.

Yeah, it looks right. I appreciate your efforts on my behalf.

My L has a lot of music he finds interesting. As far as what song makes me think of him....I have a really hard time with this question. Goodnight Moon, I Will Not Die--those two make me think of him. But I also absolutely love his theme from the anime. It's the right amount of strong, tense and eerie.

I imagine that he listens to pop music sometimes, to go with those teen magazines he opens occasionally.

It's hard to associate just a song or just a genre because L is such an original guy. He's really hard to place. Near, Mello, and Matt are much easier to pick music for. But L. He's waaaaay different.

Sometimes my L likes to paint on the walls though.

I do agree. You can't just peg him with a couple songs or one genre really. It was hard for me to narrow it down to two songs and keep it at that. I wanted to keep re-editing my post with more but then that would defeat the purpose right? x)

Aw does he paint murals or intricate equations?

I freaking love Goodnight Moon -- makes me think of him too.

That "I Will Not Die" AMV was amazing~!

L listening to classic rock and "Venus in Furs" is quite adorable.

Enya, yep. As for music he listened to mainly classical, with a particular leaning towards baroque composers. Also, Tchaikovsky. Also also some Frank Sinatra, because he thought it was kind of cool. :D

As for the song that makes me think of him? Secret Agent Man, Johnny Rivers probably "Clint Eastwood", by The Gorillaz. I DON'T KNOW IT JUST MAKES SENSE TO ME OKAY.

Great questions. ♥

I haven't given much thought to the music my L likes, but thinking about it now, I'd say classical, Beethoven, Mozart, perhaps Chopin. Anything modern would have to be very alternative, and in keeping with the classic theme, I'd say he'd prefer classic alternative rock. The Cars, The Ramones, Talking Heads, maybe even Weird Al Yankovich.

Until you brought it up, I hadn't thought that my own L HAD quirks outside of his canonical ones, but, yeah, he does. My L likes animals; he connects to them instantly, as opposed to other humans who are frequently put off by him.

Another one I discovered is my L will ask others' names and insist on referring to them very formally, using Ms. or Mr. even when someone introduces themselves by their first name. The latter amuses him to no end.

My L(s) find music extremely distracting, and have a hard time listening to it. However, they find Modest Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition almost orgasmic to listen to, and get angry if anyone interrupts The Great Gate of Kiev with "noise that fails to improve silence."

let's call this backtagging!

Ohhh, you posted this months ago and I missed it -- but I'll have a go nonetheless.

The L I'm tagging this post with is an inch to the side of AU (more in terms of what Light from his world was like than in terms of himself), and was my first. For specific reasons, and although he wouldn't listen to music much, he liked New Order, and "True Faith" was his favorite song. It had to do with me choosing songs that had the right "feel" for him that would have gotten a lot of radio play in the UK in his late childhood. I've also had him listen to Glenn Gould's recordings of Bach's Goldberg Variations and to Miles Davis's Kind of Blue. I like to have him listen to Bach specifically because the music sounds passionate, but is very structured in the technical sense.

More canonically, I don't think L likes music at all, really: it's a distraction. He seems to shuffle aside just about anything that isn't relevant to the casework itself. My other Ls have all been more strictly canon, so because of that, they don't have favorite songs! (Disclaimer: YMMV According To Interpretation.)

Some songs I associate with him, in and out of various settings, are "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" by Tears for Fears, "I Love Life" by Pulp, "Change (in the House of Flies)" by Deftones, "Dancing With Myself" by Billy Idol, and -- I really should just get around to posting that mix I made, sometime, huh?

Re: let's call this backtagging!

I don't know why I never got around to responding to this because I really like your reply!

I absolutely love how diverse all the L's all are. There are some amazing perspectives out there, yours being one of them. You've put a lot of thought into your version, and I really dig that.

Love that yours liked New Order! And I totally agree that canon L finds music too distracting.

Now what I am really replying for is to beg you to share your mix! It sounds very interesting. ♥

Re: let's call this backtagging!

Haha... you know, I made the mix like a year ago and never posted it because I was never quite happy with it... for one thing, it begins with the Pearl Jam song "Last Exit" -- which fit very well when I started playing him and not at all by the time I actually put the mix together. For another, I made up a huge file of lyrics so it could have a nice page layout, then promptly lost the lyrics file. So posting it is something I keep meaning to get around to. Maybe I'll make it a project for his 30th birthday. ;)

The idea of the only song L knows and likes being "Walkin' on Sunshine" is inappropriate and amuses me, but that's not on the mix.

I've got some music I associate with him up on his profile. The first song on there, KC Accidental by Broken Social Scene, is my mental L's theme song. I like to think that L is a fan of really cranial post-rock stuff.

Uhhhh mine's pretty much the anti-paranoid since he's dead. He just cannot be assed to give a damn anymore.

Thanks for your input on this.

And I have to say, I really dig your username for L.
