Summary: Gin found a new way to off his targets!

When Gin stumbled across a rather strange-looking notebook one day, he picked it up on a whim, began paging through it (though it was blank)…and wound up stunned when a monster of some sort appeared in front of him.

After the initial “WTF?” moment, he listened as the monster—who introduced himself as a shinigami—explained that the book was called a Death Note and had the power to lets its holder kill people from afar, with mere knowledge of the person’s name and face. He could specify things exactly, or just write in the name and let the person die of a heart attack.

Now, it just so happened that Gin had been handed a new assignment. He had the file on his desk beside the Death Note; said file included his target’s name, along with a photograph of the man. Intrigued by the prospect of this new power and possible alternate method of doing away with his hapless victims, he decided to give it a try.

So Gin lifted his pen and wrote the name of his target in the book, along with a random time for later that day—though he decided to just let a heart attack do its thing: Gosho Aoyama, 4:54 PM.

…who the hell was Gosho Aoyama, anyway?

News of the victim’s death was on the news that night, proving that he had been successful. Family and friends of the deceased were stunned, as the man (who was apparently some sort of artist or some such thing) had been in relatively good health, and it seemed strange to them that he would just drop over like that. It was suspicious to some, but there was absolutely no evidence to suggest foul play. If someone had somehow managed to give the man a natural heart attack, they had committed the perfect crime.

After it was over, Gin thought for a moment before he went back to his desk…and put the Death Note in the very bottom of the lower drawer. He then retrieved his handgun and repocketed it. When the startled shinigami asked why he would do that, Gin simply shrugged and said, “It’s just not the same.”

PS. It seems like I’ve been seeing Death Note everywhere I look, and I think it got to me. An interesting series, though not my usual cup o’ tea. But yes, random mini-crossover thingie here! I’ve gotta write more non-crack fics for this challenge…but the crack is so easy and nice and lemony-fresh! Oh well.

Thanks for reading, all! Much love!

Utterly GREAT spin on the DN concept - Gin's dislike of the distance the DN provides is brilliant.

Except for when the victim is his pet kitten. Then it turns him Evil ;)

Ya know, for all the crackishness, that one made me a little sad. Poor lil' Blackie!
