I would write a bit about how I want to spend the rest of my life followed by how I'd die to confirm it.

If I found one... Oh the joy.

You'd all be doomed. Myself included. It would be like a neverending series of Saw movies.

I'd burn it because I don't believe any one person should be able to take another's life.

Fair enough... Hmm but hypothetically anything can happen to you within those 99 years. What if you ended up in a situation that should have killed you the next day and then just couldn't die...


Hence the reason for specifying good quality of life.

I'd touch the book to gain the ability to see shinigami. Then I'd consider whether to get the shinigami eyes or not. Then I'd prepare to destroy the book, and if the shinigami protested I would point out that there can be no happy ending for a human who uses a death note even once. It says so right in the rules: humans who use the death note to kill vanish upon dying. You're removed from whatever afterlife or reincarnation cycle exists in that world forever. No matter what name you write down in a death note first, you wrote your own name down as soon as the pencil or pen met the paper.


I thought the whole thing was that the Death Note universe does not acknowledge an afterlife, or reincarnation. That's why Light was able to do things so dispassionately, because all there was was this world and people who died would bear no grudges.

I'd write all my bullies names and write some names of some people I really really hate.

I used to want this Note so badly during in my junior/senior years, I always picked two same persons to write it down. The one whose stole that girl from me, and other one is man-hater teacher. But now, they're not in my life anymore and I been reconnect with that girl; so I'll just keep it in case.
As DN fan, I'm well aware what consequence of use Death Note; I having fear of nothingness.. So...I probably will make/ask someone to write it down for me and hopeful they don't actually touch piece of Death Note, so they wouldn't see Shinigami.

The basis for my assumption that there is some sort of afterlife or reincarnation cycle is one small thing that never really came into play in the story and is only stated once. It says that the fate of the people that use the death note is to go to "mu", or "nothing". I read that to mean annihilationism, or the wicked simply ceasing to exist upon death.

I can imagine an atheist scratching their head right now wondering how that can be a thing one would wish to avoid

I couldn't claim to speak for atheists of whatever stripe since I'm essentially an agnostic theist, but I would imagine that at least some simply came to terms with the idea of ceasing to exist rather than seeing it as a positive in and of itself. As for myself, the notion is positively terrifying.

I'm agnostic too. I don't think i would care how i end up even if it means unimaginable pain. Even if it's incomparable with the pain supposedly waiting for sinner, when i was in a fairly horrible accident, all i could think at the time was, this is happening but who cares. For me at least, without the promise of heaven (or whatever happiness people believe is awaiting them), "mu" would be far more appealing than everlasting pain.

I'm hella Pagan so it's sort of ehhhhhh for me. I mean Neopaganism has this whole "summerlands" thing before reincarnation, but It doesn't really make sense, since I see my soul as being identical to all others, from its point of view it is immortal. But my mind is unlikely to survive.

If you look at ancient Pagan afterdeath beliefs there was nothing really nice about death, unless you got deified. You just got put into a spirit storage place and lost your memories. It's similar in pre-Buddhist Shinto beliefs, Izanami's realm was not somewhere you wanted to go, but you didn't really get a choice. In these kind of things the point is to not die, or at least to make your death mean something.

That said, it would be SUPER dishonourable/selfish to let your afterlife beliefs change your way of treating people in these traditions and you'd probably get struck down for your hubris really quick...
