... what would you do?
I'm pretty sure all of us know what a DN is, but what would you really do with it if it came in your possession one day?

I'm sure I'd turn into selfish mode and 'take care' of the people that have hurt me in life and then maybe I'd kill a few criminals. My psychology teacher said that any man than possesses power will turn evil, so I'm curious if the next posts here will prove him wrong  Wink

I've never watched Death Note, so I only know a little bit. It's a book, you write a name in it and the person with that name dies, right?

I'd burn it, so I (or anyone else) wouldn't end up abusing it. No one can track the death down to you, right? So I'd say the risk of keeping it and ending up murdering someone is too high. And it's not like I'd be any worse off than before I had it...

Well, I'd say that if we've learnt anything from the Shinkai films, it is that life is beautiful (even if it is beautifully sad most of the time) and that really such an object as a DN would just be destroying so much, whilst acheiving practically nothing.

So yeah, I think i'd get rid of it too.

Though i know it'd be wrong and what not, i'm probably just about crazy enough to go on a little killing spree. But like Light, i'd only kill people who i felt deserve it. And it wouldnt be criminals and the like. Things more close to home. I would ask for shinigami eyes and i'd probably carry it out punishment over a series of time.

What happens next depends on whether i've got enough of a conscious not to let the power make me completely insane. I'd like to think i'd be able to destroy it though.

Wow, you guys have so much good in you! Great to see that there are still people out there that can't be changed even if offered unimaginable power.

Hmmmm ... good question. I'd probably not do anything with it or give it back to the shinigami. Having a DN is kinda like getting wishes or time travel ... you're just asking for trouble.

I've only watched Death Note a couple of times, and I've always wondered. What the hell are those weird monster things that hang around some of the characters???

If I had a death note? I'd use it as blackmail by threatening to write people's names in it to get anything I wanted, then I'd go crazy with paranoia thinking people would try to steal it in my sleep, so I'd move into some crumbling old lighthouse on the edge of a tiny rocky outcrop in the middle of the ocean where I live off desalinised sea water, any fish I can catch, and the flesh of shipwrecked sailors!!

Thoughts?

Hmm, I can sense a topic such as this can be a big discussion.

Nick, thank you for making me laugh. You are a sweet cruel man. Smile

I agree with Laz though, having control over such power is just asking for trouble. However, owning something like a Death Note would obviously make a man happy at first thought but as you go on you'll probably realise you cannot stop commiting murder after everything you would have done. Which means the only things that will happen is either continue killing, or until someone stops you. But you would not want to let that happen, so you'll work even harder in killing those who get in your way.

I think, like most others, we are better off without such madness of fantasy into reality. But then, we are all living precious lives and that could be a fantasy itself!
