Drywallers - opinion on how to do something please

I'm trying to determine if I need a nailer where the yellow line is. I'm wondering if I can support the hanging edge of the drywall on the ceiling (red line) by the drywall that will be on the wall (blue line). Make sense? In other words, I'll drywall on the blue plane and leave ~1/2" at the top so that the drywall on the red plane can snug on top of it, be supported and not hang. The "hang" is < 12", btw. What do you think?

Said yet another way, there is no place to nail at the yellow line for the red plane.

Thanks in advance.

Yes there should be a nailer there. Any gap more than 6" should have a nailer. If you don't want to cut nailers for each stud bay you can see if your hardware store has drywall clips which you can attched at each wall stud.

Yes, you need support as that is too far to "float". There is a product called "The Nailer, that will work or just add blocking if you are in a hurry.
