Death Notes and Shinigamis Light’s POV “Hyuk Hyuk Hyuk”, an unusual thing mutters. “What is so funny Ryuk?”, Light said to no one. “Hyuk Hyuk, nothing, it’s just that the look on your face yesterday was priceless, Hyuk Hyuk”, the thing replied. “Those two detectives just surprised me”, Light replied. “Yesterday you didn’t say a thing to me all day even though I keep talking”, the thing said. “What do you expect? You’re a shinigami for crying out loud, and no one else can see you. They’ll think I’m insane if I talk to you”, Light replied.

Ryuk, a Shinigami/Death God. He has a monstrous yet a bit human like appearance, has big red eyes, scary face and huge hidden black wings.

“Oh yeah, that lady detective is fast and quite smart to have been able to think that, Hyuk Hyuk”, Ryuk said while chuckling. “To be honest, it was out of my expectation that she was THAT smart”, Light said irritated. “Hyuk Hyuk, guess Light can be outsmarted by a girl sometimes”, Ryuk said. “Hmph”, Light replied.

General POV “Phew, finally done with the groceries. Good thing I’m not needed in the case yet, I can enjoy a day off-like day”, I said as I went out the grocery store with a bunch of plastic bags in both of my arms.

I walked in to the nearest cake shop that I can find then bought a strawberry cheesecake. As I went back to walking home, I noticed something fell on a vacant lawn. I went to the lawn to check what it is.

“Hm? What’s this?”, I said as I picked up the item. “Death note?”, added. “Well, well, well, a girl picked up my death note”, a voice said coming from behind me. “Who are you?!”, I exclaimed as I turned around.

When I turned around, an almost human-like yet a bit scary thing appeared. “My name is Rei, I’m a shinigami and that my dear, is my death note”, he said.

Rei also a shinigami, but he’s more human-like than Ryuk, he has pale skin ear piercings, slight thick black lips, almost like an emo punk but doesn’t look exactly like a human being.

“A death note, huh. If this is yours, then here you go”, I said as I offered the death note to Rei. “No, that is yours now”, Rei replied. I blinked twice in confusion. “How can this be mine? You just said that this is yours”, I said. “Whoever from the human world picks up a death note, the death note will be that human’s property”, Rei replied. “Then, if this is already mine, what will be your purpose here? And what is this death note anyway?”, I asked. “I’m here to be of help to you when you need it”, Rei answered. “If someone’s name is written on the death note, that person shall die”, Rei added.

My eyes widened in shock, a notebook that can kill people? I thought. “I will also be following you starting today”, Rei said. “Wait, am I the only one who can see you? Or everyone can?”, I asked. “Basically, only you. But whoever touches your death note can see me as well”, Rei replied. I just nodded seemingly like I understand.

I started walking back to the hotel again, with Rei following me. I kept the death note inside of my plastic bags to keep it unseen. I went to the elevator immediately as I arrived in the hotel.

When me and Rei are already inside the elevator, L sent me a text message saying that I’ll be needed in the case later afternoon.

Phew, with that much time from now, I’ll be able to know more about this death note.

As we arrived at our floor, I quickly went inside mine & Aki’s hotel room. I just left the plastic bags in the kitchen then jumped on the sofa before opening the death note.

“You’ll see the rules in the very first parts of the notebook”, Rei said. “Oh. I’ll start reading the instructions”, I replied as I start reading the instructions. “Eh? Needs a name and has to know what the person looks like?”, I exclaimed with a troubled look. “Yes, anything wrong, Karin?”, Rei asked. “It’s the same as how Kira is said to kill”, I answered.

“If it is how you say, then this Kira might really have a death note”, Rei said. “ne, Rei, please tell me, are you on my side and will help me with anything?”, I asked with a slight frown. Rei ruffled my hair then answered with a smile, “Yes, of course. This notebook is really for you, after all”

I smiled then started reading the instructions of the Death Note again. “Rin-chan? Who were you talking to?”, Aki asked as he went out of his room. “Uhm..”, I mumbled as I looked at Rei with the Can I tell him? Look. “It’s your choice, let him touch the note to see me, but it will only be temporary”, Rei said. I nodded.

Aki has a confused expression on his face. I went to Aki then offered the Death Note. “Aki, please don’t be surprised. But, please touch this notebook”, I said. “Okay then”, Aki replied as he touched the death note. Aki’s expression was surprised mixed with fear and confusion.

“R-rin-chan, who’s that?! He kinda looks like a human, but different!”, Aki said shakily. “Calm down, Aki. His name is Rei and he’s a shinigami”, I answered. “SHINIGAMI?!”, Aki asked with his eyes wide. I nodded then showed him the death note. “He was the owner of this Death Note. A notebook that can kill a person by just writing that person’s name and knowing the face”, I explained. “The same as Kira?”, Aki asked in a more calmed tone.

“Just as Rei told me earlier, it is possible that Kira also have a Death Note”, I answered. “I see, then with this, Kira’s case is almost solved”, Aki said. “Not yet, me and L will have to investigate this notebook first”, I replied. “I’ll help you with everything Karin, especially in finding that Kira”, Rei said. “Arigato, Rei”, I replied.

“I’ll be going to L now! See ya later Aki!”, I said as I left the room with Rei following me. I immediately went inside L’s hotel room as I arrived. Everyone looked at me same with L but a little more surprised.

“You’re a little early today Rin-chan”, L said sitting on a computer chair. “Ryuuzaki, I need to talk to you, come with me”, I said as I pulled L to a room. I notice that Rei didn’t move from his post, he’s just looking at Light. “Rei?!”, I shouted from the room. As soon as Rei heard me, he followed to the room.

Everyone had a confused look including Light. Maybe thinking that who might that Rei be.

“Is anything wrong Rin-chan?”, L asked in a confused look. “Ryuuzaki, touch this notebook”, I said as I gave the notebook to L. L just touched the notebook silently, so as expected, L can see Rei now. “What is he?”, L asked in his usual tone. “He’s a shinigami. His name is Rei”, I said. “Rei, this is L, the greatest detective. I’m helping him solve the Kira case”, I added. “Nice to meet you”, L said. “Same here”, Rei replied. “And so, what is with this notebook? Death Note?”, L asked while flipping the pages of the death note.

“A Death Note is a notebook that can kill people just by writing their name and knowing their face”, Rei explained. “Same as how Kira is said to kill?” L asked. I nodded, “That’s why I have come to a conclusion that Kira has a Death Note”, I said.

“It is 85% correct based on this evidence”, L replied. “Rei, you told me you’ll me find Kira, right? How will we know if someone has a death note besides me?”, I asked. “Use your eyes. If you can’t see a person’s lifespan, then that person has a Death Note”, Rei answered. “My eyes? Lifespan?”, I asked in a confused tone. “You may not aware of it, but you have shinigami eyes Karin”, Rei answered. “And in order for you to use your shinigami eyes, you have to concentrate in your eyes. But once you get used to it, you’ll see people’s name & lifespan just by looking at them”, Rei explained.

“I see. Maybe I’ll try on Ryuuzaki right now”, I said as I looked at L. “Okay, just concentrate your eyes on top of his head or his face”, Rei said. I concentrated hard to see L’s name, and finally, I’m starting to see something.

“L.... Lawiet....?”, I mumbled as I still look at L’s head. “You saw my name?”, L asked. I nodded, “I did it Rei, I could see the Ryuuzaki’s name and lifespan”, I said in a low but happy tone.

“But I must warn you, since you’re not used to the eyes yet, and still needs to concentrate, you can only use your eyes when you really need it, okay?”, Rei explained. “Okay, I understand, thank you for worrying about me Rei”, I said with a smile.

“The shinigami disappeared”, L said. “Huh? Rei is still here”, I replied. “The effects of touching the note seems to have last”, Rei said. “How can I make Ryuuzaki see you a little longer?”, I asked. “You have to give him a physical yet emotional touch”, Rei answered. “Like?”, I asked. “Kiss him on the lips”, Rei answered bluntly.

My cheeks were bright red, “H-h-how in the hell can I do that?!”, I said nervously. “Are you alright Rin-chan? Your cheeks are red”, L said as he came near me. “E-everything’s alright”, I answered. “So, may I see the shinigami again?”, L asked. “Y-yes, but.....”, I answered as I lowered my head. “Do you really want to see Rei again?”, I asked. L nodded. “Sorry about this then, but this is the only way you can see Rei longer”, I said.

L had a confused look; I neared my face to L’s then kissed him. L’s eyes widened in surprise. Then after a few seconds, I broke the kiss then I lowered my head in embarrassment. “W-wha-?”, L asked as he blushed a bit. “It’s the only way for you to see me longer”, Rei answered. “Sorry, Ryuuzaki”, I said as I looked at him with a shy face. “I-it’s alright”, L replied.

“Hmm”, Rei mumbled. “What’s wrong Rei?”, I asked. “You shouldn’t tell anyone in here about the Death Note for now”, Rei answered. “Why is that shinigami?”, L asked. “We have to wait until Karin can fully use her shinigami eyes or else, Karin and you might get in danger”, Rei answered.

“Understood”, me and L replied. “We should get out now, who knows what the others will think”, I said as I went out of the room with the death note in my bag.

“Yeah”, L replied as he stood at his post for a while before leaving the room.

“Hyuk Hyuk Hyuk”, Ryuk chuckled. “Things will start to get interesting very soon, Hyuk Hyuk Hyuk”, Ryuk added. Light just had that slight troubled look, not saying a word.

The whole team and Light proceed with their work, including me and L. Me, L and Sayuki are in the living room talking about our conclusions. “Kira is most likely using form of writing to kill”, L said. “If that is so, we have to know how he does it”, Sayuki said. “Once we find out how he does it, all we need by then, is Kira. The person who is Kira”, I added.

Our work went on until the end of the day, each and every one us came to our own conclusion about how Kira kills. It was already evening; everyone went home, while I fell asleep on the couch with my usual sitting position while looking at some files.

“Ryuuzaki, it seems Rin has fallen asleep. Can you kindly please place this blanket over her? And let her sleep on the couch because Rin seems very tired”, Watari said as he gave L the blanket. “Okay”, L replied as he went to the couch.

L sat beside me then tried to lay me in a more comfortable position to sleep, but instead of my head on the couch, it ended up in his lap. L sighed, “If I move her any more than that, she’ll wake up. I’ll just let it be”, L said as he put the blankets on top of me.

“No.... Please.... Don’t...”, I mumbled in my sleep. L heard my mumbles then said, “Rin-chan, what’s wrong?”, L asked as he was looking at my face. “Don’t.... Kill...”, I mumbled again as few tears fell from my eyes. “Karin is having a nightmare”, Rei said. “You have to do something to calm her down”, Rei added. L stroked my hair gently, after some time, I’ve calmed down then woke up in the middle of the night.

As I woke up, I was surprised to see L’s face. “You’re awake, are you okay now?”, L asked. “L? Wha?”, I replied. “You were having a nightmare, it might have been scary based on your expression”, L said. I didn’t reply to L, instead I just kept quiet. “Everything’s gonna be alright, I’m here for you”, L said as he hugged me for a while then let go. “Thank you, Ryuuzaki”, I mumbled as my head and body were facing L then fell asleep again while L still strokes my hair.

You should just move in here already, so that I can always watch over you. L thought as his other hand touched his lips. Man, what am I thinking all of a sudden? Rin-chan is just a co-worker, a former Whammy. So, what in the hell am I thinking?

Death Note

...times throughout his works. The will to power can be described as follows: “when one is endowed with power, one finds pleasure in utilizing ones own power. Also, when someone has the will to power they will become in love with the very idea of using their power to dominate others even by ways of cruelty” (Nietzsche). In the graphic novel, Death Note, the deeds of the protagonist of the story, Light Yagami, represents the destruction of one’s rationality and devotion to the will to power principal. What starts as a once-in-a-lifetime chance to save the world for Light becomes a path built on the pleasure of his own dominations and rise to power. The premise of Death Note is both simple and provocative: floating above the human world is the world of the shinigami, gods of death who cause human beings to die by writing their names in notebooks. Occasionally, either by accident or malice, a shinigami drops it’s notebook into the human world and an innocent person picks it up. In Death Note, brilliant and handsome young high school student Yagami Light picks up a notebook dropped by a shinigami, who has fortunately written the rules of the Death Note on the cover. The most important rule is the most simple—if you write down the name of a person whose face you know, that person will die of a heart attack within forty seconds (T. Ohba). Light later discovers many permutations—the most significant is that he can specify both the time and...

The seeming impossibility of ontologically grasping and determining Da-sein as a whole a. Care * Forms the totality of the structural whole of Da-sein * “Being ahead of itself” * Da-sein is always after its “potentiality-of-being”; it is influenced by being ahead of itself even when there is nothing further ahead of it. * Hopelessness does not tear away da-sein from its possibilities/potentiality of its being; it is simply another way towards them. * Da-sein always lives for the sake of itself * There is always something “outstanding” in Da-sein that has not yet become real (it is merely a potentiality for its being) thus exists a feeling of incompleteness and the presence of a “nothing” * Eliminating what is outstanding (i.e. attaining “wholeness”) annihilates Da-sein’s being. Should this occur, it will never again be experienced as a being-in-the-world * ------------ b. The impossibility of grasping Da-sein as a whole 2.

Something Borrowed Malcolm Gladwell Analysis

...Those notes can only be sequenced so many times before they are repeated by a new musician and called “original”. Intellectual property has been protected in the courts systems, but has favored personal interest over creativity and borrowing. In the case of Weber vs. Repp for example, Repp was claiming to be the owner of the copied Catholic folk music stolen to create music by Weber. With help from a lawyer, it is proven that Weber wrote a song previous to the music and songs by Repp. It was demonstrated that Weber wrote a song, Repp wrote another song sounding similar, and then Weber wrote the song in question. This showing that Weber borrowed from himself and Repp borrowed from him. The musical notes played in the same sequence were copied by both composers and therefore the courts dismissed the case, musical notes are not owned by any one composer. It does not matter what you copy but how much you choose to take. The idea behind Gladwell’s argument is that borrowing some to be creative is and needs to be acceptable in the eyes of “plagiarism...

Narrative harmonize, considering it was our first year learning an instrument. There was no reading or writing when it came to playing the instruments, but with music, a story can be made. For example, half the class would play our recorders in sync with one another, and other students in the class would play percussion. With the rhythm of the music combined, the feel and sound of the music gives the audience a feel of a different environment, such as feeling as though you are taking a journey through an Indian village, or celebrating the first fourth of July in America. As I progressed through the year, music classes turned into singing as well. In order to know the words that we were singing, we had paperback music, which had music lines, notes, and words for us to...

...through the paper. Halfway through the paper, I saw my friend John suspiciously looking at the class. My instincts told me that something was wrong. As a result, I began to keep an eye on John. Suddenly, I saw John taking notes out from his pencil case! My mouth hung wide open and I gasped in shock. How could John do that! I thought should I report him? The devil in my mind said that I should not care about this thing after all, he is still my best friend while the angel said that I should be honest and report him. After thinking for a while, I decided to report him. I raised my hand and told the teacher “ Mr Tan, John is cheating by using notes from his pencil case.” The teacher nodded his head and walked towards John’s table. Mr Tan said “John! Why are you cheating?” John shook his head to deny that he did not cheat. Mr Tan confiscated his pencil case and dumped the contents out. Out came pencils, erasers and pens. But there was no notes inside! John let out a smirk from his mouth. I was shocked! I thought that there was a note? Just when I thought all hope was lost, Mr Tan found another zip at the pencil case and he opened it. Suddenly, John’s smirk began to vanish. Waves of panic overwhelmed him. The hidden note was found there! Mr Tan looked at John sternly. He brought John to the principal’s office to explain what had happened. On the next day, the fiery-tempered Discipline Master caned John during assembly period. After this incident...

Note Taking

...Improving Your Note Taking ▪ Effective note taking is one of the keys to succeeding in school. Students should devote a considerable amount of time reviewing information discussed during classroom lectures. It is very difficult remembering specific details from classroom lectures without good notes. These note taking strategies will help you to take better notes: ▪ Make clear and accurate notes Make sure to take legible and accurate notes since it is not uncommon to forget key details discussed in class after it has ended. Frequently, students comprehend the teacher's lecture, so they'll neglect to jot down specific details only to forget them later. Students who keep accurate notes can review them later to fully grasp key concepts during personal study time. Additionally, since during classroom lectures teachers frequently cover many topics, effective notes enable students to concentrate on specific topics. ▪ Come to class prepared Students properly prepared for class usually take better notes. Proper preparation includes completing assigned reading prior to class and reviewing notes from previous lectures. Students who do this can ask questions about confusing concepts and be prepared for new topics. ▪ Compare your notes To ensure your notes are as accurate and detailed as possible, compare them with the notes of other students after class is over. This is useful because your colleagues will frequently write down lecture details that you...

Note Taking Assignment

...Dean Helton Note-Taking Assignment 1. Why did you choose Cornell, Outline, or Visual Map? I chose the visual map way of taking my notes this morning at church. I have actuallynever taken my notes that way before, but I really enjoyed it. I am a kinesthetic learner and seeing maps and graphs help me understand things a lot better than just simple notes. I was nervous at first to take my notes this way but I very quickly got the hang of it. After the sermon it was much easier for me to look over my notes and understand what the message and sub nots were pointing out. I will now take all of my sermon notes this way. 2. What did you like about the style of note taking you chose? I enjoyed using this style for many reasons. One of the main reasons was because it gave me the opportunity to listen more to the sermon wrather than focusing on writing down the notes that we were given. It also was a huge help to me after when I was looking over the notes. It gave me a clearer picture of what the sermon was about. 3. What did you dislike about the style of note taking you chose? I think the only thing I disliked about it is that it is almost like an outline,a nd if you are not careful you could miss an important long point that need sto be recorded just for the sake of making your picture graph look good. I added a few take away points at the bottom of my notes that I felt like I needed to add so that I could better understand the over all message. 4. How do you plan...

Note Taking

...TAKING LECTURE NOTES I. There are many reasons for taking lecture notes. A. Making yourself take notes forces you to listen carefully and test your understanding of the material. B. When you are reviewing, notes provide a gauge to what is important in the text. C. Personal notes are usually easier to remember than the text. D. The writing down of important points helps you to remember then even before you have studied the material formally. II. Instructors usually give clues to what is important to take down. Some of the more common clues are: A. Material written on the blackboard. B. Repetition C. Emphasis 1. Emphasis can be judged by tone of voice and gesture. 2.
