After Miss Alex’s post about the relationship between Matt and Mello I’ve had a hard think about how it would be for my Matt. He’s an AU! So obviously I can’t talk much about canon though most aspects of his character I’m trying (and probably failing) to keep close to canon Matt. He was obviously friends with Mello in his universe after all Mello took a shy kid under his wing and let him tag along. From Mello’s view I see him not caring about Matt being so close in grades because as much as Matt loved L and his ideals he had no interest in becoming L, so he was no threat unlike Near. Matt is a really laid back guy so who better to put up with Mello’s volatile nature. In my AU that friendship goes as far as Matt actually following Mello from the orphanage, though I see it being more as a one sided thing on Matt’s part because Mello has his own plans and keeps Matt out of them. Maybe for protection, maybe because he was too encapsulated in his awesome plans at the time.
