Characters: Ryuk
Genre: Humor, drama

So, this is going to be a series of one-shots involving any number of characters, genres, topics, etc. All should be under 500 words. I plan on updating every Sunday until the end of the year. If you have something you would like to see, leave it in the reviews, I am definitely taking requests.

In a far, desolate corner of the shinigami realm, Ryuk sat hunched over an orb. In the past he'd often teased Gelus for his obsessive observation of the humans, but now he finally understood.

For many years he spied on them; learning their habits, their behaviors, their… interests. In a way, this was much more interesting than attaching himself to one singular person.

He stared down at the humans, bustling around their cities. Another one of their Earth years was nearly at a close.

Ryuk took a closer look and found a series of giggles start to bubble just beneath his surface.

There seemed to be a singular consensus among the humans.

Hunched further over the orb, he couldn't contain his hysterical laughter.

If you thought 2016 was bad, this year is going to be so much worse.
