I decided to do a crossover on one of the BEST manga ever; Death Note. It’s about a kid named Light who found a notebook belonging to a god of death that can kill people whos names are written in them. The world’s greatest detective L is trying to catch him while Light is trying to kill crimminals to create a utopia to rule as god. Happy reading!
Don’t worry, Artemis will be in it, if not in the first chapter, the second chapter then. I’m going to twist the story a bit.
Chapter 1: Light Yagami
Light Yagami was staring out the window of his classroom, hopelessly bored. He was a skinny 17 year old Japenese boy living in the Kanto region of Japan and was the top-exam scorer nation wide.
Light was reflecting on how rotten the world was. Brutal murderers killed people every day, girls got attacked by stalkers, and pickpockets roamed the streets. Suddenly, something out the window caught his eye.
A small black notebook suddenly appeared from thin air and landed near the school. Out of pure curiosity, he walked over to the thin diary and read:
A notebook of death? Light wondered. He flipped open the page and read further
“This is a death god’s notebook” He snickered. “How to use it…the human’s whose name is written in it will die” Light chuckled, and pocketed the notebook as he headed home. Once there, he proceeded to his room and read further.
This note will not take effect unless the writer has the person’s face in their mind when writing his/her name therefore, people sharing the same name will not be affected.
If the cause of death is written within 40 seconds of writing the person’s name, it will happen.
If the cause of death is not specified, the person will simply die of a heart attack.
After writing the cause of death, details of the death should be written in the next 6 minutes and 40 seconds.
Light scoffed, although amused that a prank like this was so elaborate. He laid on the bed, muttering how stupid the whole thing was…
Realm of the Shinigami (death gods)
Several Shinigami sat around the barren land, gambling. Ryuk the shinigami finally rose.
“‘Bout time I got going”
“Everywhere you go, it’s barren anyway”
“I dropped my Death Note”
“Oops! Ryuk, you really screwed up, man!”
“Know where you dropped it?”
“Yeah, the human world” Ryuk replied nonchalently as headed down a series of stairs. A portal opened. He unfolded his wings and descended down to the human world…

Artemis was currently in Japan, looking forward to a buisness meeting with a well known man reguarding his buisness Yotsuba’s stocks. As to remain inconspicuous, the rendezvous was arranged in a nursery school. Butler was left at Fowl Manor as he wasn’t exactly the chipper age he was to be performing bodyguard duties, so Artemis went alone, much to his parent’s displeasure. Artemis detested nurseries. The whining children gave him migranes and the dust mites weren’t helping either.
He had just walked in when Artemis’s phone rang. He quickly flicked it open.
“My apologies, Master Fowl, but our meeting today must be cancelled. Mr. Serubi had a severe fever and cannot attend”
“I’m sorry to hear of that. Perhaps tommorow” Artemis replied, irritated. He had spent quite a bit for last minute tickets and three days of his time. He headed for the exit when-
Eeeekkkk!!! Screams came from the doorway. Children ran amock in terror and obvious distress. Artemis turned and noticed a burly man with a handgun. In the faint distance he could hear police cars. The man paused in the room that Artemis along with seven children were residing. Artemis stepped back as the man pointed the gun at him.
“Nobody move or I’ll shoot!” He shouted at the police. Out the window, Artemis could see several policemen and reporters. He was in a very dire situation indeed. This madman would undoubedly shoot him the moment he opened his mouth to reason with him.
Artemis slowly fingered his fairy communicator when-
“You! There! What are you doing?” The man demanded. Storming over to Artemis while still pointing the gun at him, he carefully took out the communicator. Artemis’s blood ran cold.
“Trying to find help, eh?” He thrust the tiny phone on the floor, crushing it with his boot. “Well, why don’t you die first, scum?” He prepared to press the trigger…

Light finally arose from his bed. He stared at the Death Note for a second and took out a pen.
“Wait. If someone dies, would that make me a murderer?” Light mulled it over for a second.
Gee, I’m getting too serious about this
He turned on the TV to the news station. A reporter spoke
“A man named Kurou Otoharada who killed/wounded six people yesterday is hiding in this nursery school with eight hostages including children. Two days ago-”
Light stared for a moment, then scribbled:
He waited 40 seconds…then…
Nothing. I knew it.
“What’s this? The hostages are coming out! The police are moving in to arrest Otoharada!” Light was stunned momentarily.
“Yes? This just in! The captor is inside the nursery and it appears that he’s dead!” Light turned back to the Death Note.
There ya go! My first crossover! Ugh. I’m losing my touch, but reviews are appreciated. And for those of you who’ve read Death Note, should Artemis be on the side of Light or the authorities? Don’t worry, I won’t kill him off or anything 😉
