okay....I've got something bothering me for... 30 seconds.... what if L was the bored high school genius that picked up the Death note? would he have done the same as Light? would the ending differ? would the investigation end up that long? what would misa's role be?

If L had found the note.. I believe he either would have it burned the moment he found it to be real. L said it to begin.. that the Death Note can only bring misfortune to a person. And considering his strong character with his life of soltitude/no family/no friends.. completely selfless would never let the death note be corrupt as Light had.

that is very interesting. but from how he acts when he isn't the owner of the Death Note, he would probably get rid of it forever. he seems to have a strong sense of justice and human moral.

hmmm.. if L possess the attitude that Light have, probably the ending would be the same.. & he would do the same, i guess.. but if he remain as L, i mean attitude he had maybe he'll discard the notebook..
or maybe it depends on the writer or in the artist..

I wonder if L would even be curious. Unlike Kira, I don't think L was interested in trivial objects that were maybe to him, simply a joke. This is what Light did but he changed his mind. It's a hard call =/

Putting L in Light's shoes, it's hard to say. If L had lived Light's life up until that moment, the chances of him following Light's path are higher than if L had lived his own life up until that moment.

It's a hard question, and there are qualifiers that need to be met before reaching a definitive answer.

First, an accurate answer to the "Nature vs. Nurture" debate would be needed. On the nurture side, if you're giving L Light's life - bored high school genius, than L wouldn't be the L we know. He would have different experiences, thoughts, emotions, memories - an entirely different socialization process than that of what we know of him. Given that their cognitive abilities are similar, L would probably come out being very similiar to Light.

But, would he react the same? On the nature side, it's hard to say. Due to our rather pathetic understanding of the human brain, this is impossible to put a finger on. Is that sense of Justice of his really originating from his own mind, or is it due entirely to his socialization?

I think we also have to take into consideration L's emotional detachment from humanity. I would guess that this would remain more or less the same. Honestly, L could give a less of a **** about individuals. He believes in sacrificing for the greater good, and he also believes that the ends justify the means. Just like Light.

Don't get me wrong, I agree 100% with the character's outlook on life - the value put on human life is illogical given the number of human beings on this planet - the more there is of something, the less value each will have.

But, these qaulities in one with his cognitive ability are extremely dangerous. And, you take away the guiding hand of Watari from him, and L becomes suddenly very unpredictable.

However, I think because of L's emotional detachment, he wouldn't make the same mistakes that Light made. Light screwed up because he let his emotions rule over him. If L had made the decision to cleanse humanity - he wouldn't have been caught. Light only won over him because he had more information (Rem loving Misa).

If L was the L we know with his personality and morals, in that scenario he would destroy it when he learned that it worked.
