Previous: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive/1230328/Char Sheet: http://pastebin.com/fUKdUWLF-Hmm, its night already? Should've guess it would be since I got to the world of the living in the morning and the sun was already setting when I was finishing up my patrol. Guess I just didn't realize it had been that long. Honestly I thought I'd get back here before the sun actually set and had time to enjoy myself and relax for awhile after a boring, routine and bloodless patrol. I mean, I probably still have enough time to find something to do before I head to sleep. But my options are much more limited than they would be otherwise, you know if I didn't get back in the middle of the night when Seireitei is mostly already asleep or preparing to be.I look over the dim streets from the top of the stairs I'm standing on, slowly turning my zanpakuto over my shoulders as my black kosode blows in the breeze, almost musically. I can see some lights down the street so, I'm not the only one who's still awake at a time like this. Funny how routine it has gotten...all of this, I'm pretty sure if I told the me of a few years ago she'd get used to living "peacefully" in the land of the dead, she'd laugh at my face and ask if I was really her. But....well I've always found peace among friends. Sure it isn't real peace but people like me can't really thrive in times like that, I realize. But...maybe that's why I'm so content hear, serving among the gotei 13, serving Lord Kuchiki, both of them. A shinigami's life isn't ever peaceful, and that fits perfectly for an artist like me, an endless stream of opponents to test my skill against until one manages to outstep me or I grow too old to hold my sword properly. Which judging from the captain commander will be a long fucking time from now. And not to mention, I'm not just fighting, I'm doing good. Guiding souls and protecting is truly an honorable undertaking. if my old comrades could see me now, I'm sure they'd be smiling proudly.My smile slowly sours and turns to a frown....Yeah I still need to avenge all of them don't I? I've been trying to not think about it, but I haven't killed the hollow who devoured Saigo sama and the others yet have I? It...infuriates me that that thing is still out there, even after it killed me and preyed on the battlefield like a vulture.Gripping the hilt and broken up scabbard of my zanpakuto, I take a sharp breath of cold air. And calm myself as I begin to walk down the stairs. Well I have all the time in this life to find the bastard. And I should worry myself right now, its too late to be stressed. I should just focus on finding a friend to be around or something to do before I go to bed.I just hope I find that hollow soon....and I never have to deal with another Quincy's self righteous bullshit.cont

Its nice having the streets all to myself for once, but I don't think I'll try to stay up this late too often. I really should get to sleep but there's one or three more things I need to do before I leave the shadow swallowed streets and pass out in my room until the sun rises again. My footsteps echo through the nights as I walk along through the moonlit streets and my mind wanders as I go through all the things I meant to do today that I could still do before I close my eyes and go to sleep.I think Yoruichi wanted to introduce someone to me earlier, but I had to head off to my patrol in the living world before she could tell me exactly who she wanted me to meet, and I could be remembering wrong since she didn't waste her or my time with it, and just said one or two things as we passed eachother on the way to our duties...Still could look into that. I could also look into why Aizen has been sending me so many letters again and.AH, I promised I'd train with Aya when I got back! AH crap knowing her she's probably still waiting for me!Walking much faster now, I head off towards where I asked her to meet me, my heart pounding in my chest as I try to hurry so she doesn't get anymore hurt than she already is.Where did I tell her to meet me? near the cliffs where Yoruichi usually trains me in hoho In the kuchiki estate On the bridge near my favorite restaurant Outside the sixth division barracks. write in

Well, at least she's just at the Kuchiki's estate, if she's still awake that is. Aya wouldn't miss the chance to spar with me unless her getting held hostage really shook her up. But I'm fairly certain she's still herself, since she didn't even need a day to go back to her usual routine of smiles and laughing. I smirk,the night air feeling a bit warmer as I run down the street as fast as I can. She really is like a ray of sunshine in my life, its impossible to be depressed around someone as happy and bright as she is. Just like a bird singing in the morning as you wake up to give you a bit of extra hapiness at the start of the day. I chuckle, imaging my little sister trying to sing to wake me up, as I run over a bridge lit up with the moons light. I turn to smoke before I finish crossing it, and then snake over the street like a living shadow, shooting down towards the Kuchikis' estate faster than I can move on my own two feet.The walls around the manor and grounds are lit up, and covered in tired looking shinigami keeping guard, as well as two standing before the closed gate. I don't want to deal with them this late into the night, so I just move through the gate, my smokey form pushing its way through it like water through a broken basket."Welcome back, Kemuri" one of them yawns as the last lip of my cloud eases into the gate and onto the other side.I keep moving through the darkened grounds, heading into the dark garden and curling around the various trees and lanterns as look for Aya in this maze of trees, flowers, bamboo and various decorations scattered by the path.My eyes catch a glimpse of golden hair, and I fly towards it, reforming and stepping down in front of my little sister. I frown and sigh as I see she's sleeping, off in her own little corner of the noble family's garden, under a gnarled old tree, hidden off the side of the stone path.She's slumped over a scroll, her hand clutching a paint covered brushwhat do I do? wake her up see what she was drawing lay next to her until she wakes up Let her sleep, and spar with her in the morning Lean as close as I can, and scare her awake write in

>>1288240Danke, hope you enjoy
I sigh, and push my hair out of my eyes, smirking and shaking my head as I look down at my little sister, all curled up trying to stay warm. Yeah, I figured she'd be tired but...didn't think she could fall asleep out here, but well I guess people can sleep anywhere if they're tired enough. I mean, at least she's sleeping somewhere safe instead of in the streets somewhere. I pat her head, ruffling her golden hair as I lean over to get a look at what she was drawing. Paint is spilled all over the grass around her like blood from a warrior who died and passed peacefully. Which she kind of looks like right now, from her posture at least. Pushing away grim thoughts like that, I gently pull the scrolls she was practicing on away from her hands and frown. She wasn't painting anything or ever sketching anything. In fact the paper is a mess of black ink and paint, and it has none of her usual stylistic flair to it. I look a bit closer, trying to see exactly what she drew by holding the scroll up to the moon.Wait these aren't scribbles. They're...was she trying to plot out her movements in a battle? Yeah, she had to have been, why else would she draw something like this? Was she actually trying to figure out how to improve her style, adding new counters and strikes to it? I even recognize a few of them, I think she was trying to speed up her own swings by lessening how many movements she needed to make to with them.I smile proudly, rolling up the scroll after I check to make sure its dried, and set it in her arms, as a cold breeze makes her and my hair dance in it. Well, I didn't expect that, but I am very proud she's trying to better herself like this.But I don't think I can wake her up just yet. Kneeling down, I lay against the tree she is pressed against, leaning against her as I cross my legs. The wet grass brushes against me as I rest my head above hers, sitting as close to her as I possibly can. She winces, and falls against me, clinging to my arm in her sleep.Must be having a nightmare.What do I do to pass the time?

Well, if she needs comforting when she wakes up, I can give it to her, but now I need something to do while I wait for her to actually wake up. I hate having nothing to do, and if my hands are idle I can just find something to do. Like fixing the flaws in the moves she's been planning out. I grab the scroll from between her arms and unfold it, calmly grabbing the brush from her fingers as I admire what she's gotten down with a critiquing eye.-20+5=25= great success! + crit-Yes there are some pretty glaring flaws here. Mostly because she doesn't realize she needs to replace the reach she lacks with aggressiveness, and slights of hands. Sure against most people her sheer speed would throw them off. But that can only get her so far, and she isn't very strong so she needs to play on her strengths. And with her Tanto she needs to get in close, and with her Shikai....well that gives her a great range advantage and ability to create distance between her and her enemies. But, this has glaring flaws in it. There are to many cutting motions, and not enough stabbing ones. Not to mention most of these have far too large of arcs for the size of her blade, but if I shorten them and and make it so she follows up with another swing or stab I should fix that weakness. and she's already short, so overhand swings shouldn't be much of a part in her style...still if she can hit their shoulders it could be a crippling blow...hmm if she changes how she holds her zanpakuto I think I can salvage all of these movement here. Now of course she's left out many crucial drawings and movements on this scroll. Now of course her instincts should take care of that, but when you're recording your work you shouldn't leave any of it out. Besides this gives me a chance to add moves i think she could use. I stab to the stomach and slice, Cut and pivot....stab low and strike high while they're moving to defend or reacting in shock.. Yes its pretty basic, but its a solid foundations for me to work on for her.I smile, setting the brush down in the grass as I hold up the scroll. I might not be a good painter, but I think I did a good job. Now it all flows more naturally, follows an actual rhythm and works, with enough options to change it up and make it mutable without completely changing anything. Yes, I think she could be quite versatile if she follows these steps. I smile and set it aside to dry, grabbing the sword cleaning kit from my side, opening it up and grabbing the cloth from it as I pull my zanpakuto out of its scabbard. With a few slow swipes of my hand, I clean the bloodstained blade, setting the cloth aside and grabbing the bottle of oil, carefully dripping it onto the metal, before dabbing it and spreading it around with the brush. Blow down the edge, I grab a bit of powder, brushing it over the blade, before I brush most of it off, grabbing the cloth and cleaning most of the excess oil and powder off, but leaving a nice, polished finish in the bloodsoaked metalcont
>>1288426I give it a swing....hmm, could do a bit of sharpening. I can feel Kotei's excitment in the metal, as I tend to her and bloody's cage.Grabbing the whetstone, I hold it in my hand, pressing it against the blade of Ryūketsu no kōtei, I gently pull it down, quickening as I move down the blade, moving faster as I move it up and press it back against the blade, repeating the process. The sound of sharpening metal is like the finest music to my ears.Aya's sparkling blue eyes flutter open and she yawns, glancing at me. She blinks and rubs her eyes and smiles widely"Kimi! you came' She says happily but tiredly"I did indeed" I say, sheathing my zanpakuto as I stand back up "Wait....how long where you sitting there for?" She asks, looking a bit flustered "and where's my scroll?"What do I do? tell her show her my improvements stare at her and ask if she's ready for her spartease her for awhile ask her about the future Swing at her with the blunt of my blade saying, pay attention 1d100 Ask if she wants to do something before we start training write in

"Oh just a few minutes at most" I say sweetly, resting my zanpakuto on my back "What? can I not sit next to my little sister""Well...you can its just I didn't expect to see you there, I thought you had forgotten or something" She says, smiling and yawning as I laugh and shake my head"How could I ever forget you? Besides if I did you'd be out here alone in the cold, suffering from nightmares" I say a little teasingly "What were you dreaming about anyways?""I wasn't?" She says a bit too quickly and I'm not sure if it was just a trick of the light but I'm pretty sure I just saw her blushing."Oh so if it wasn't a nightmare what was it?" I ask leaning closer to her "Because I was certain you""I was just having a bad dream alright, nothing serious at all" She huffs, crossing her arms"Aww, a nightmare isn't anything to be ashamed of, everyone has them" I say happily as she smirks"Even me?" She asks as I frown and nod"Of course I do, I just ignore them" I say bluntly as she looks at me like she's impressed, and then I turn to her with a mischievous grin "By the way, you had the cutest look on your face, like a scared little girl"I cackle teasingly as her face turns red and she scowls at me"J...just are we going to spar or what?" She huffs, snorting as she grips her Zanpakuto as I giggle and shrug"Are you ready?"

I glance back at her casually, smirking as my skin begins to blacken and burn, flaking away and turning to smoke as her zanpakuto swings past me. I flow through her, making her yelp in surprise as I push my way through her chest, moving through her like a breeze through an open door.She clutches her chest as I reform behind her, drawing my blade in one smooth motion, arcing my nodachi as she turns back around and leans back to avoid its edge.She slumps forward, throwing herself at me as she rushes forward, trying to cut me. and she nearly gets me but I turn my body to smoke again, and flow to the side, reforming my foot to kick her away before I reform. She flies back, bouncing off the ground before rights herself, pressing her hand into the wet grass as she slides on it towards a bamboo thicket.

I raise my hand, opening my mouth to begin an incantation, but before I can even move my fingers to their proper place, Aya is upon me with a hollering laugh, the grass flowing behind her like a roaring river as the breeze pushes it and the trees above us like an painter's brush.I move to defend myself, getting ready to smack her. But she does something I don't expect, she leaps into the air and kicks my stomach, smacking the pommel of her tanto on my shoulder as she flips over my head.

I turn, inhaling as I swing around to face Aya. Her eyes go wide, she must've thought I'd go down from just a kick to my stomach. Don't know why, maybe she forgot all the time's she's nearly knocked herself out trying to hug me. Maybe all those times just knocked the memories out of her head. I don't know. I do know that she cut me down the back, not a deep slice or a stab, just a bit of a kiss from her zanpakuto. Won't even scar. I stare her down as she laughs nervously and swallows"You know kimi, you're kind of like a rock" She says, before she realizes what she said as I narrow my eyes "I mean not like that""Just get back to the fight before you make me mad, Aya" I sigh, resting my zanpakuto on my shoulderShe tries to run around me, and cut my side, the sound of a storming wind rushing past me as she goes by. I just smack her in the back with my scabbard, and hear her gasp. By time I turn back to her again, she's on her feet."Hey, sis" She asks casually "is shikai allowed?"What do I do?

"Sorry I was late sis" I say softly as she smiles and sighs"Its fine,I don't mind at all"She says warmly, shrugging "But what about Shikai"I don't give her an answer, I just tilt my head as she smiles at me looking a little worried as she holds her tanto defensively in front of her. I smile, and without saying a word, step towards her and then run at her. her eyes go wide in surprise,she didn't think I'd just attack her like this. But hey, we're sparring and I want to keep things interesting. Besides, pain is the greatest teacher in the world right behind experience itself.Aya raises her Zanpakuto to block mine as I swing up, but I just swing it around, stepping to the side. I watch her eyes following me as I bring the pommel of my nodachi to her chin with an echoing crack. The world moves slowly. Her face is etched with pain as she slowly falls backwards. But she manages to react and tries to swing at me, but it goes wildly off course, as I'm pretty sure I must've scrambled her thoughts with the hit.As the blade misses me, I swing my scabbard into her stomach like a club, making her double over clutching it. She grits her teeth in pain, and tries to stab me. I just flow back, turning to smoke as I swing my zanpakuto in a quick curved arc cutting her from her shoulder to the other side of her chest.She stumbles, her kosode staining red in a straight line. She pauses and looks down at herself."It isn't that deep" I say frowning as she looks up at me and pouts, wincing as she does it"You couldn't have just given me a straight answer?" She asks angrily "I'm training you" I say calmly "I don't need to be nice about it, training isn't effective unless it pushes you""Oh...oh well isn't that exciting" She says grinning widely as her twin tails blow behind her "its just that....you're stronger than I am"What do I dogo on the defensive,let her attack 1d100give her some encouragementSwitch to ayawithout a word, lay into her with a relentless barrage of strikes 1d100give her one free hit 1d20+endKnee her as hard as I can 1d20+strMake it as hard as possible to hit me 1d20+spirit or mobility  Tease her and try to rile her upSay we can stop if this is too much tell her if she beats me I'll trick aizen into going on a date with herwritein

"Bah, I hate it when people think others are beyond their reach simply because they're stronger then they are, that's the talk of people who just can't force themselves another step forward" I say sternly as I step back from her, holding the blade and scabbard of my zanpakuto up defensively "Power...means nothing, Sure extra strength and speed help, but skill, guile and sheer power of will decide the victor more often than not. I shouldn't have been able to cut aizen, or kill those quincy, but I did. Don't think just because my Reiatsu is stronger means you can't beat me, You have the speed of the wind itself aya, stop selling yourself short! you look up to me I know, but don't put me on an unreachable pedestal, find your own path to strength, don't use me as goal, make your own little bird"She stares at me, clutching the wound I gave her, her sparkly blue eyes looking at me now filled with joy and confidence as a smug, playful smile dances over her lips.-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pe7_DKzmJts-Before I can react, she's upon me, moving faster than I can see besides the blur of her hair. I remember the times I sparred with aizen and Yoruichi...she's fast, and if she's this fast now then....she might actually surpass them someday.I struggle to keep up with her strikes, moving back as she strikes me with a blinding flurry of steel and cloth, as she dances and runs circles around me, getting in the odd stab and slice as I miss a few of her blows. the sound of blade meeting lacquer echos through the forest.It feels like I'm in the center of a typhoon!roll 1d20+endurance

Its like a mad dance, there's no danger to it but something in the back of my mind tells me there is. Because she could very easily overwhelm someone unprepared for her sheer speed. But I'm used to it, and I have the stamina of an Ox. So even though she's attacking me from what feels like all angles. She isn't trying to bring me to my knees in one well placed strike, while I'm sure she could find one even with her short blade she isn't doing that. instead she's trying to run me ragged, a safe tactic when you can move like she can.She's forced me back on to the stone path, I block a strike from behind and feel her stab my side, I block her next strike from my other side, feeling blood drip down my cheek as she nips at my heels, trying to confuse me with the sheer number of her stinging attacks! She's like a wasp or a bird pecking at a fish!But I don't wear out, I can barely feel the bite of her sword.

>>1288952You say that like we aren't on that crazy fucks level already.>>1288967Which guy? Kenny's killed a lot of people, and I doubt anyone has bother to keep track of them all.
>>1288980Ya most likely, but it isn't like he can't be persuaded to think a little differently, if the last arc of Bleach is any indicator, though I think we'd get along super well with Unohana.And honestly i'm just throwing out some bullshit atm but I really like the idea of becoming good friends with Aizen and keeping him from going apeshit/insane with power.
>>1288999Seconding all of that, non-crazy Aizen is a bro and I'd like to see more of the scariest woman in anime.>>1289002Thanks, I forgot about that part.
In fact its actually quite fun, like we're playing a game together. But its also challenging, I have to use all of my awarness and reflexes just to catch her blows as she pushes me down the stone road, leaping and running at me, stepping back after every strike making it look like she's constantly hopping at me like a baby bird trying to take flight for the first time.I have to put all my focus into her, watching her like a hawk just to keep up with her. My legs step back, blocking her strikes with my zanpakuto proper and its sheath. she doesn't show any signs of slowing down, and I think she's actually going fast. I feel her cutting my fingers and arms, but somehow I manage to intercept most of her attacks and block them, keeping pace with her as she keeps advancing upon me like a hungry wolf! Its impressive, actually for both of us. The sound of metal meeting metal rings in my ear as I try my best to predict where she'll attack next from the blur of motion and color in front of herits like I'm fighting two of her. Wait...rushing water? did she push me back to the pond?!What do I do Try and push back 1d100 wait for her to attack, and whomp her over the head with a pommel strike 1d100 keep....blocking 1d20+endurance shove my shoulder into her 1d20+strsheath my zanpakuto and declare it a draw tell her how proud I am of her dive into the water writein

>>1289035The kimi-bowl is like the dust bowl. It ends when it gets wet.
>>1289046You have no proof
>>1289035I don't like the idea of Byakuya simply because of how long we've joked about it with Yoruichi and because we already said we don't see him that way.>>1289049This made me lol, despite the fact it's a lil fucked up.
>>1289031Science fucking hurts.
>>1289059things can change zan, and it was pretty common thing for samurai. (we probably fucked SAigo-sama at least once)>>1289055>inb4 that 100 has him going "aw man!" equivalent as his plan fails.

>>1289068Ya but for Kimi I think she's more a woman of her word and I think the relationship between us and Saigo was more father-daughter than lovers.>inb4 incest is wincest
>>1289075>Ronin>Purenot too japan she isn't at least not in life, and the fact she may have had sex in her previous life, (which she should really not remember at all but w/e) Doesn't mean she has in this one which is separate.>>1289079Again, things change, especially once he gets the full measure of his natural power and surpasses or equals us. We don't see him that way now, but it could change when he grows up. Besides the whole, if my lord ordered my to fuck him I would, because samurai, thing. (because Bushido means a lord's command above all)As for Saigo, doesn't preclude it, but you may be right
>>1289079I had an idea. What if the reason Kenny is so violent is sexual frustration, and he's actually a really chill dude underneath it all?
>>1289091Byakuya would never order that though and things change but never so drastically or so suddenly, besides i think our little bird my make a better fit since they more or less work off each other in a sort of yin yang way.>>1289094Well he IS a chill dude, but it's definitely not sexual frustration for his violence, it's more instinctual, since it's the way he grew up, it's just part of him naturally, he's honestly more like a hollow in that way.
>>1289105>Byakuya would never order that thoughagreed, just saying it's a real possibility if we didn't get an honorable lord.>things change but never so drastically or so suddenlyWe've spent years with him, small things could change in time and us only noticing on an subconscious level>besides i think our little bird my make a better fit Besides the fact she's our little sister and has the hots for Aizen HARD, Kimi doesn't think of her that way at all.Also don't see Kimi as a lesbian (a rare thing in a HM quest)
>>1289115Nono i meant little bird and byakuya
>>1289119Possible. I don't see it right now, but it could happen.
"Aya, I am really proud of you" I laugh as I feel her get another stab past me defense as more hot blood flows down my scarred cheek "You might not be strong, but your fast, just look you've made me retreat! There are very few things in this life and the one before that can claim that honor!You have no idea how proud I am sis!"I see her smile as she moves to strike me again, my sandals digging in the mud as I nearly step into the freezing cold water's of the pond. I block her stab, catching it in one of the broken cracks of my scabbard, the blade of her zanpakuto getting stuck in the red string. I move to swing into her shoulder, at an angle that would weaken her own swing but not cause any damage that's too grevious and cruel.She pulls back, a blur of gold and black. I see a flash as her blade once again catches the moon's light. Moving without thinking, I spread my legs apart, turning to face her as I reinforce my stability, digging my feet into the mud in the moment it takes for her blur to run from the path to me at the edge of the pond.I inhale, and exhale calming my nerves and clearing my head as I narrow my eyes. she throws herself at me, like I anticipated. "Sorry Aya, I might be impressed but"I say sadly as I tighten my grip on my zanpakuto's hiltI turn out of the way as she throws herself at me, and I slam my pommel and fist into the back of her head with a resounding, echoing crack that sounds like a single beat of a drum."I've won this one"I say frowning, feeling a twinge in my heart that I push away....she needs this, it'll help teach her to be a better fighter.She hits the mud, making a ditch as she slides into the pond, vanishing under the surface before she rises back up, her twintails undone and her golden hair flowing behind her like the sun's own rays.Her eyes look dim as she groans"Kimi....that really hurt....can we do that again"I slap my own face as she grins and tries to laugh."Good thing I have a thick skull right?" She says, as she tries to get back up, her hair covering her eyes "Now lets finish this"What do I do keep fighting her tell her we're done for today, and relax with hermake sure she's okay escort her back to her barracks Laugh and shake my head .....I didn't realize you had that much hairwritein>>1289094I mean, we all know he has a murder boner, a wank ain't going to calm that down.>>1289105>>1289119>>1289126Imagine, strawberry meets a bright eyed delinquent and blonde soul reaper instead of rukia
>>1289115As far as sexuality and all that biz go, it's been stated on numerous occasions that Kimi is a bit like a Maiden in that area, which to me means that she's likely a virgin or at the VERY least super inexperienced.Beside thinking that she's somehow been forced to do something just doesn't jive with me at all, i ain't into all that cuckold stuff or anything similar.
>>1289135> Laugh and shake my head> .....I didn't realize you had that much hair
>>1289135> Laugh and shake my head> escort her back to her barracks> Tell her she has a scroll to look over before we give her a rematch
>>1289135make sure she's okay .....I didn't realize you had that much hairIf she's really ok we can continue, a little hard practice can go a long way, unless we have something we're doing the next day.I might be dumb for asking but is the delinquent byakuya? either way it'd be a really cool alternate to canon
>>1289135 Laugh and shake my headmake sure she's okay .....I didn't realize you had that much hair Tell her she has a scroll to look over before we give her a rematch
>>1289135>make sure she's okay> escort her back to her barracks> Laugh and shake my head> .....I didn't realize you had that much hair>Byakua you can come out now. You're not that good at stealth>>1289144Aya and Byakua's theoretical daughter.
>>1289135>Laugh and shake my head>Escort her back to her barracksGot some stuff to do.
>>1289147That sounds like a fantastic alternative to Rukia, not to take anything away from her of course.
>>1289135>tell her we're done for today, and relax with her>make sure she's okay> Laugh and shake my head> .....I didn't realize you had that much hair>Imagine, strawberry meets a bright eyed delinquent and blonde soul reaper instead of rukiaOof, if any of the stupid shit that happened to Rukia happens to our theoretical niece, SS is going to be burned to the ground. Or we'll have to reprimand her for having terrible taste in men, one or the other.
>>1289135> Laugh and shake my head>tell her we're done for today, and relax with her>make sure she's okay
>>1289158Alot of things point to that not happening, most importantly the fact that Aizen isn't jumping straight into shinigami experimentation and hasn't made his hogyoku yet, afaik anyway.
>>1289170Still HM natural arrancars that can happen, and actual Sternritter (who are broken as fuck)
>>1289170Oh I know that, just saying. I still hope Strawberry happens somehow, for the sake of all the fun we can have at his expense.
>>1289181True, but the catalyst for all the SS nonsense was the fact that Rukia had the Hogyoku planted inside her by Kisuke in that modified reigai (I think that's what it's called anyway) that got forced into her by going through the dangai.
Hi HM!I am planning a bit of writefaggotry for FSRQ, and I wanted to clarify something.Is Kimi her first name and Kemuri her surname?If so, Kemuri by itself isn't really a Japanese family name. However, from what we know so far, Kimi didn't part with her father on the greatest terms. I was thinking Kemuri might have been a name she assumed rather than keep her estranged father's name.Kemuri combines with other stuff like "yama" and "kawa" to make names. Maybe she just dropped the latter kanji to symbolize how her filial ties are gone, or how she is now just adrift, blown about by the wind.I'd appreciate any insight you can share. Oh, and let me know if you would rather I not make it public or at least clear it with you before I do.
>>1289187Depends on what all happens, though I won't be suprised if something happens that causes events that aren't too disimilar.
She manages to stand up, wobbling as she struggles to stand up right in the water, looking sick as she stares at her feet. Also she looks a little paler than she should. without hesitation, I wade into the water to get a closer look at her, I don't see any blood in the water or feel any on the back of my pommel..But still I could've done damage inside. she watches me like a wounded dog, holding her zanpakuto at the ready like she expects me to attack her. But I just hold my hand out and slowly approaching her"We're not sparring anymore" I say, watching her frown, with a relieved look in her eyes as she sighs "Ah, can't we fight a little bit longer?"She asks sarcastically, still sounding drunk....I hope I didn't hurt her, I don't like hurting people close to me, I can't even stand seeing them hurt. I'll be sick if I hurt her, I just know it.I laugh and shake my head, running my hand to where I hit her, pushing past what has to be a few pounds of wet hair"Uh, kimi what are you doing?" She asks as I sigh in relief, there isn't any blood or a dent, well there's a welt but that's to be expected, she's alright besides maybe having a concussion.Wait....when did she get this much hair"I didn't realize you had this much hair" I say, actually shocked as I pull my hand away with a few of the golden strands draped over my fingers."Sis, you didn't drink any sake before this right?'She giggles, pushing my hand away gentlywhat do I do relax in the water with her for awhile let her stay here for the night take her back to her divisiondrop her off at the 4thsee why aizen has been sending those lettersGo get a drink and meet a certain cat wake byakuya up writein>>1289202Yesand yeah I could see her doing that as well, she could've also only remembered the Kemuri bit, but I could see Kimi doing exactly what you said with dropping the latter kanji. Especially because you made it sound poeticAnd feel free to make it public, I love stuff like this man!>>1289187I mean, kimi did meet his dad that one time.
>>1289223> take her back to her division>see why aizen has been sending those letters

>>1289223Great, thanks. Hopefully it will be ready to share by next thread.
"No" I say shaking my head as she rubs the back of her head wincing "Oh, well you were acting a little silly so I had to ask" she says smiling through her wince of pain"You do like the stuff""Well I'm not an alchoholic Aya"I Say, grabbing her hand to try and get her back on solid ground, but she tries to pull her hand down so she can hold mine "Come on""Wait, where are we going?" She asks, narrowing her eyes as leans against me on instinct as she starts to tip over "are we going to do something? I thought it was too late for...somethings"Yeah....she really needs some rest after a hit to the head like that."taking you back to your division" I say sweetly as she frown "You're right its too late for us to really do anything more, and I have something I have to do""I don't think I could walk all the way there"She groans, laying against my back "Could I just stay here for the night, and what's so urgent that you gotta go so fast""Well Aizen has been" I say as Aya gasps, her eyes getting their sparkle back "oh""Can I come!"

"No Aya, you really need rest" I say sweetly, leaning over her with a warm smile "You slept outside and took a nasty hit to the head, you are in no state to come with me right now, just go to my room, and go to sleep, alright""Why can't I come...I...I feel fine" She stammers, looking like she nearly passed out mid sentence "You're worrying to much, besides he's at the same barracks where I live right? Wouldn't it be easier just to carry me there""Because its a private matter" I say, the cold look of seething jealousy washing over aya's wet face"and yeah you got a point there just...don't move around too much or try to follow me after I get you there""I get it I get it, having another secret meeting with aizen sama"She huffs, crossing her arms "I understand I won't bother either of you""Thank you, I'll help you to your bed, and don't get out of it, just lay down and sleep" I say sternly as I scoop her up as easily as I would a small cat, holding her in my arms like one carrying her easily despite her size "and if you feel weird in the morning just""I know I know" she groans, closing her eyes "just stop babying me, I'm fine""I hope you are" I say under my breath, so quiet even I can barely hear it.-Alright, she got heavier when she fell asleep halfway here I'm sure of it. I wince, rubbing my back as I pull my other arm out of aya's arms as she lays on her bunk in a deep slumber. Being as quiet as I can, I creep out of the living quarters and slip into the dim hallway."Hah"A familiar voice gasps as I nearly bump into him "Kemuri""Aizen?" I ask "you're still awake""I have too much work to do to sleep"He chuckles "Besides I'm...a little stressed to be honest...walk with me"What do I say you could use some sleepOH? what kind of work is that why you were sending me so many letters you're lucky aya is asleep, she might get some ideas if she sees us together like this so what's the deal with the letters sosuke Oh? snooping around again Well, the night is beautiful, don't see why I wouldn'talright, why do you need me? writein

I turn around as he starts to walk down the hallway out to the courtyard, picking up my pace so I can catch up with him and match his."Well, the night is beautiful" I say calmly as I walk beside him through the dark hallway, noticing his eyes have slight but noticeable bags under them "So I don't see why I wouldn't""Oh uh...yes the night is rather beautiful"He says with a smile, turning to me as he adjusts his glasses "But I more focused on what I have to tell you""Does it have to do with why you look half dead?" I ask, frowning as he does the same"Ah yes that" He says dully, pushing his glasses up again "Yes as I said I've been rather stressed with work lately""Oh?"I ask as we stop outside the door leading the outside of the barracks, moonlight covering both of us "What kind of work""Well Captain Hirako, despite his....eccentricities is a rather hard worker so I don't have to help with his official paperwork, so I have quite a lot of free time" Aizen sighs lowering his head "And I've used all of it on some rather personal research and studies of late....I have been missing sleep as you noticed"What do I say*grab him* don't tell me you're still investigating....thatthat isn't healthy sosuke, just go to bed we can talk another timeAnd what might you be studying Do I need to check in on you to make sure you're getting sleepOh?

>>1289438Never, I still dream of him and Aizen taking out Ywarch and all of his Quincy bitches in an afternoon. And of stealing his shoes.
>>1289447guess i'm not the only one who goes around all the bleach threads on /qst/
>>1289452Nah, just this and SS. Though I still need to finish read that if I ever intend to play it, I've been putting it off and I don't know why.
>>1289457Ah, well I do recommend German Hollow Quest as well, it's not as well written as SS or this one but it's enjoyable nonetheless and is the reason I got into the /qst/ board at all in the first place.
>>1289462I think I did try to read that at one point, but I got bored with it really quickly for whatever reason. I don't know, it and Last Stenritter just didn't click with me. But the latter may be just because I hate Quincy's.
>>1289462German Hollow quest is kinda atrocious story quality wise.Its an enjoyable read, but it makes my inner writer weep tears of blood from the amount of condensed Mary sue and pure edge.
>>1289466Never heard of Last Sternritter, I think i know what im gonna look for next.>>1289470it's definitely the lowest of the 3 of these types of quests i know of, but spooky is a cool dude and im not against some mary sue edginess.
"It has to be important if you're losing sleep over it" I say turning to him as he slides the door open and walks outside into freezing night air, I follow him "talk""Ah yes well uh....I suppose I'm studying you in a way" He says with a chuckle as I narrow my eyes "and not like I used to its more like I'm...researching events around you, rather than trying to figure out why you possessed such...talent""Oh good, I was about to say my friend, I thought your stalking days were over" I giggle as he blushes slightly"It wasn't stalking, I was just curious" He says, sounding a little annoyed "as was everyone else practically""Sure buy a girl a drink just to talk with her" I say teasingly, leaning closer to him"You wouldn't talk to me other wise" He sighs, pinching the bridge of his nose "I mean honestly you just a very...interesting person you know""Yeah I get that a lot and you kept trying to get meetings with me" I say with a grin as he nods "so you could know more about me""Yes yes" He says crossing his arms, frowning "But can you blame me Kimi? You are fascinating, you achieved shikai nigh instantly, you had a natural aptitude with swordsmanship and kido, you seemed like someone like me except...you remember your previous life, honestly I just couldn't resist trying to figure out your...secrets""its fine Sosuke" I say happily as I glance at him as I lean against one of the barracks wallsWhat do I say So....why are you studying events around me?It just sounds like you fancy me Hey, I mean by all means we're both freaks of nature from what i heard, only natural for kindred souls to meet so why are you stalking me this time? what exactly are you studying, what...eventsYou know, you're kind of funny Sosuke, you're such a scholar but you could kill most everyone you meet with as much effort as it'd take my to snap my fingers...its funny to me what were we talking about againI don't really care if you stalk me or not,doesn't matterwrite in

So she teases to both joke and get the upper hand because she doesn't want to get told she's ugly even if she says she is.
>>1289501Which is why I believe that the one who wins the kimibowl will as upfront as possible. Grab her hands look her dead in the eye and call her beautiful.
>>1289505Right before Kimi socks them in the face if they don't reaffirm that they believe her to be a proper and respected samurai.
"Hey, I mean by all means we're both freaks of nature"I say smiling as sosuke frowns, his eyes holding a deep sadness as he lowers his head "from what I heard, only natural for kindered souls like us to meet""Oh?" He says, smirking as the moon makes his glasses glint again "So do you believe in destiny and fate kimi?""You can change the path life lays for you, is what I think" I say shrugging "don't know much else though, about that""Hmm, well kindred souls...sounds romantic in a way, poetic" He says softly as he leans next to me on the wall "It does doesn't it,so why are you studying events around me? Sosuke?" I ask glancing at him as his face loses its joyful veneer, and a cold, deep sadness takes its placeHe takes a deep breath, clapping his hands together "Perhaps...perhaps its just my delusion, maybe I lost my mind,but I feel more collected after you came into my life more...clear if that make sense but" He says lowering his head to the point his eyes are covered by shadows "So I hope that isn't what madness feels like because""Aizen?" I ask moving closer to him, sensing the pain in his voice as he takes a slow deep breath"Because I feel as if you might prove my old dream true, that you might mean my research isn't just mad ramblings like they said it was" He says, biting the back of his thumb "I don't want it to be true though, Kimi,I want to just be clinging to some far off dream of an idealistic fool...""What are you talking about sosuke"I ask, frowning deeply as he turns to me looking ashamed "....wait is this that study that made you have all those revolutionary thoughts when those old bastards forced you to stop it""I...I've been studying it in a much less....volatile way than I did before or planned to in some....dark part of my heart"He says clutching his chest as I sigh and slap my face as he takes a deep breath "Now...I won't force you into this, I just have a simple test that...well if you're willing to take part of it, will prove me right or prove I'm just clinging on to false hope, I won't bring it up again if you say no kimi"I turn away from him and look at my feet"I promise you....no harm will come from this, to you or anyone else, I've...I've made sure of that" He says softly, reassuringly putting his hand on my shoulder "and if it does...well I'll accept responsibility"Take part in aizen's test?

As your friend, I'll help you with whatever this is. BUT, only after you sleep for as long as you can and compose yourself, because right now you're starting to scare me. After that, explain this test of your to me and I'll try to help you, ok?
"What exactly is this test Aizen?" I ask suspiciously glaring at him as he reaches into his kosode, smiling as he always does "what are you even talking about""As I said, I wouldn't want to drive away or hurt the first friend I really had and the one who turned me away from...places I don't want to think about" He says, slowly pulling something out of his kosode "and I'm fairly certain...the only reaction you had to this before was simple attaction, and nothing more""What's in your hand Aizen?"I ask sternly, nearly barking a command at him"Oh"He says with a smug smirk as he adjusts his glasses "A little gift from the quincy, a reversed engineered and weakened hollow bait, I've tested it intensely and...well it doesn't have nearly the pull of what the Todesjager were using, so....there's near to risk in using it"I glare at him"Kimi?" He asks, sounding like I just stabbed him in the gut "Please, this is the once chance for my dream to exist just....humor me, I was probably just imagining it anyways"What do I do? agree to try it out, away from people refuse, and tell him to just forget about it....Sosuke, do you think I'm a hollow?I mean I eat a lot but still....I can see why I'm one of your few friendsdon't bring this up again ....Lets get you some sleep, I think you need it friend are you sure its weaker than the quincy's? writein

"Fine sosuke, I'll humor you" I sigh, rubbing the bridge of my nose "But just in case this attracts any hollows, we go as far away as we can from people, out in the wilderness just to be safe""I'm not a fool, I might've tested this but there are always factors that can be missed, and I certainly wouldn't break it in the middle of barrack filled with shinigami" he says smiling like his usual self again, as an empty feeling fills my stomach "That is just asking for trouble, and I have a place all chosen already""Oh do you now" I drawl as his smile lessens "And where might that be""A long way" He says hold his arm out "so....to get there faster I might have to carry you there, if that isn't too embarrising for you kimi"What do I do? take his arm don't take his arm tease him about this ask him why he thinks ...something this crazy writein

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yoCDlOLN9Y8-Sosuke looks down at me with a warm smile, holding his arm out to me, ready to grab onto me and pull me on a mad dash to wherever it is he's planning on taking me. He's holding it, waiting for me to grab his hand.I sigh and smirk, grabbing onto it with a giggle as I look up at him and sneer "So this was your plan all along, eh Sosuke? you know there are easier ways to do this"He looks at me confused ,mouthing "what are you talking a" before his cheeks turn red and his eyes widen.I laugh as he starts to walk along with me, holding my hand."You spend far too much time with captain yoruichi" He says under his breath as I keep laughing"Oh, did Byakuya tell you that?" I ask as he begins to walk faster, faster, and even faster "The future lord Kuchiki?"He asks with a smirk, "Hmm, no I don't go over to that part of Seireitei often, but I can imagine""Tch, its just good fun,besides its lightened him up a bit to, I think" I laugh as the world becomes a blur and I start to struggle to keep up as Aizen begins to actually run, his expression unchanging.I open my mouth, to ask him to slow down or anything so I don't end up getting dragged through the air like a doll.without a word, he notices the worry in my eyes, and scoops me up."Sorry"He says, still looking ahead as he leaps over a couple of buildings "I forgot you aren't as fast as your sister,I should've gone a bit slower shouldn't I""Shut up" I say flatly covering my face with the sleeves of my kosode"No joke this time?"He asks, actually sounding disapointed-The world slows down, and I free myself from Aizen's arms, finding us standing on the edge of a field of red flowers and few cherry blossom tress"Here...the furthest location we can get to within a day"He says calmly as the morning sun begins to rise, my eyes aching and feeling tired as I rest against one of the pink filled tress"So....not much else to do now, besides the test"What do I do? try to take a napMake aizen promise to me something if he's wrong promise aizen something if he's right ask who he thinks is going to happen, hypothetically sing a poem Tell him he needs to learn to be more gentle, I've been on corpse wagons less rough than him Tell him never to tell anyone about this, no matter what happensdemand sake and fried pork write in >>1289684Giiiin

"I demand the finest Sake and fried pork for my participation in this test of yours" I say dully as I stare up at Aizen as he palms the modified hollow"And I'll get it for you, as soon as we're done" He yawns, rubbing his thumb over the coin in his palm,which I notice now is a dark blue color unlike the quincy's coins "I promise, I'll get as much as you want kimi""And hypothetically" I say calmly as I glance over at him through my barely opened eyes "What do you think is going to happen once you break that bait open? Sosuke"He looks at his hand then me, his worry fading with an expertly crafted fake smile as he shrugs and sighs, his glasses glinting in the light of the rising sun."Well, hypotheticall anything could happen its the nature of chance" He says, slowly looking down at his feet "Anything could happen, but what I think will happen is you'll be drawn to the smell and possibly become hungry, as you did before...but I'm not sure how my version of hollow bait will effect so""You're just guessing?" I ask as he frowns and sighs"Its and educated guess" He says, trying to sound as calm as he can "and I promised no harm will come to you, no matter what happens""Well then what are you waiting for" I say with a sneer "Set the bait"He stands, his kosode blowing in the wind as he stares up at the sky, and presses the coin between his finger and thumb-roll 1d20+will *Nearly hollow*

off topic here but i've gone on a strange journey listening to music while waiting for updates... started with video game soundtracks, transferred to classical, listened to 10000 people singing the Ode to Joy, started watching a recording of swan lake, saved it for later and somehow ended up listening to synthwave after... and then I ended up in the trippy music part of youtube... who needs drugs when you have sleep deprivation?speaking of, whats aizens taste in music anyway?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wUvLJkxjDI-...what's that smell? Its....sickening. The air is thick with it, its sticking to my throat like bad alcohol. My nose burns and my chest...my chest feels like its on fire. I can feel my bones melting and snapping apart at the same time. I can't think straight, that smell and that fiery heat eating its way through my body wipe away any thoughts I can hold. My teeth hurt, my gums hurt, and all I can think about is how nice and tasty that smell is, and how much this burning in me hurts. Pain, sadness,sorrow,rage, hunger,regret, shame, grief, loss, self hatred and loneliness....and empty hollow loneliness. My chest is cold,I can feel my flesh prickling and hardening as the rest of my body and thoughts are burned away into ash and smoke. Voices like my scream in my head,yelling doubts, regrets,fears,hatreds, tragedies and losses long forgotten...and hunger..a burning hunger that is eating my body! I can't....I can't think. the fire, the burning, the hunger, the smell of burning corpse and dying fear! its washing everything away! I can't....hold onto thoughts, I can't fight back against it...no wait...there's something else here, I can feel it in my head, waiting waiting waiting to...to push me aside and play with my body...play with my...my body.

I've always found the solutions to my questions before. I haven't ever felt a pain like this,I know what it is though. And I know how to fix it. I need to....I need to save kimi,call of the experiment and get her away from hereI was a fool to test this so early, I knew so little. I failed, she's in pain....I said I wouldn't let any harm befall her.I broke my promise, and I feel like trash for it. tossing the bait away, I rush to kimi as fast as i can.But as I near her.-continue in Aizen's perspective shift to "Hollow" kimi>>1289786Hmm.....what do you think

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V2_LmH1Ouig-an all to familiar cry wretches its way out of her throat, mixing with her own hardened screaming. it assaults my ears and hurts as the realization hits me like a icy bucket of water. The bait isn't hurting her....no its too effective in a way I could not have foreseen. And as fascinating as this effect is, I cannot....it sickens me. I caused this, I brought the hollow I knew was hidden in Kimi out. I...I betrayed her trust. I steel my gaze as Kimi's body stands like a broken puppet, her snow white hair turning wild as her strange purple eyes gleam. She biting down so hard blood is dripping from her lips as smoke as black as night itself pours out from her wrists and wraps around her like a hungering beast, enveloping her like a thick black sheet as her scream turns to a shriek of terror and pain.Every second she yells it becomes more hollow like.I put my hand on the hilt of my Kyōka Suigetsu, feeling the cold metal in my hand as every drop of blood running through my body turns to ice as I watch the black sphere of smoke in front of me.It begins to crack and wash away, leaving Kimi standing upright, clutching her throat like she's trying to stop something from coming out of it.I frown, my heart aching oddly as a strange,yet familiar white substance flows from her mouth, rising into the air. Before it decends on her.it wraps around her face, and travels down her arms, forming wicked claws at the end, and covering her arms in a white almost fur like substance, making them appear like some beasts claws. Her wails turn to gurgles, I feel sick as I watch the mask form over her face. Its shaped like the form of a grinning oni, with four horns upon its brow.Four hornedoniMy eyes widen as I remember the story Kimi told me.All her comrades were devoured by a four horned oni, and she claimed to have died trying to fight it. But...how could she?was she a soul then or...a living being how...how is this possible this is fasc.No...it is tragic,I need to find a way to detain her.I have a promise to upholdWith a ragged groan, the hollowified kimi turns to me, her Shihakushō burning to smoke along the edges, and that cobalt blue sash she wears smeared with ash.I feel a twinge of something I don't recognize, and swallow hard as she picks up her zanpakuto, smoke swirling under her feet as her mask opens with a crackling groan.I draw my own, and start trying to figure out how to fix this mistake.What do I do?Try and reason with her rush her and try to subdue her 1d100 Test her power, so I don't end up underestimating her Try and subdue her with kido 1d20Try and make a poem for her Try to use kimi's fighting style against her 1d100 use my speed to my advantage 1d100 write inwhat do you think of the song?

Hey.What if Kimi gets sentenced to death.What if [Insert freind] helps kimi escape.What if Aizen losing his only freind causes him to turn bitter and go back on to a more canon route.What if Headmaster has us all trapped in his ruse and kimi IS the Vizards.
>>1289826Also, song's decent, but I think something with the instrumental feel of nothing personal from afro samurai would fit a bit more for fighting hollow kimi
What are we about to witness here?Time for some Bleach theory.Kimi seems like uncharted territory as far as things that have happened in bleach. She is "nearly hollow," a completely new phrase as far as I know. She was like that before she even joined the Seireitei. What does that even mean? Why did this happen to Kimi?I got some theories. A hollow is a human soul who has for some reason lost, for want of a better word, their heart; some key part of their humanness. Kimi's whole way of life was killing people with sharp metal. A pretty dehumanizing experience. One could say she was already used to being somewhat hollow inside from the get go. Then she died in a way where she harbored an extreme grudge and some serious attachments. That sounds like the kind of backstory that would create a particularly vengeful spirit, an Onryo if we are using Japanese folklore terminology. Something to do with Kimi's case? I wouldn't be surprised.I mean, Kimi is a soul who showed up in soul society with most of her memories of life intact, something that just does not happen for those who undergo konso and/or cross over and leave their attachments behind. Unusual and somewhat hollow like, and yet she is very much still in control of herself and has purpose and feelings. Such a mystery.Kimi also survived Shiroyama out of sheer stubbornness and was let go as one of the walking wounded. She kinda sounded like she had one foot in the grave already, they were shocked at first when they discovered her still "alive." Also odd.And, somehow, between departing Shiroyama and her arriving in SS, she presumably died and probably became some kind of unusual soul. Not quite a plus or a minus I am assuming. Whatever she was, she was still able to pass muster and ended up joining the G13. She was already "nearly hollow" before then, though.SO MANY QUESTIONSSo, we know what happens when Shinigami get hollowfied, and Menos get arrancared. . . But what happens when you make a "none of the above" into a shinigami?
>>1289846Maybe I should rephrase my earlier statement, it shouldn't be more dark and metal but more foreboding
I think I found something that kinda fits. In my opinion anyway.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JaMs2_3V2nc
But even as she begins to stare me down and walk towards me...or shambles rather, intent on probably tearing me apart and devouring me. I can't seem to lift my own blade any higher than it already is. Its like something is holding me back, so I lock eyes with kimi, seeing her real eyes behind the purple fire covering themMaybe I could stop her without any violence,hopefully. Her clawed hands raise up her zanpakuto, looking like they're covered in hollow hide all the way up to her shoulders."Kemuri kimi, I know you can hear me, I didn't mean for this to happen, this isn't you, just please calm down and I will fix this, no matter how long it'll take" I say calmly, smiling as I always do to put her at ease as she stops and stares at me like she's pondering something/Then she raises her hand, pointing a finger at me as smoke swirls over the black claws rising from her finger tip.It hardens into a ball of reiatsu and fires at me. I dodge my head to the right,and the small bullet flies into the tree behind me, destroying it utterly.I narrow my eyes as she begins to run at me.She's faster than she was....far faster. I leap back calmly as she slams her blade into the ground, shattering the ground in a small crater.Hmmm, Kido...kido perhaps could hold her down. But....she's far to aggressive now, I'll need to wear her down to get an opening.Hmm, and if she can still turn to smoke, I'm not sure how effective some spells will be.Well I know she's faster than when we spared, stronger and has abilities beyond her normal level.Interesting....I'll have to go a bit further this time....I really hope I don't hurt her-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V_2FgHA0oWE-Hollow kimithe glass wearing fox hops back, the smirk vanishing from his face as I swing my blade around, growling and roaring at him as he observe me from a distance, keeping just away from me? is he afraid?that I'll eat him? He's pissing me off, I'm hungry and he's running away from me like thissssss, Just stay still dammit, you damn sneering fox! I'll rip your arms off!WHO DOES HE THINK IS TAUNTING ME LIKE THIS.-Aizenright,need to do this, No hesitation. I need protect her, but if she runs free then....many more will be hurt. I must uphold my honor, the reason I became a soul reaperto help those weaker than I live better lives!"Sorry,nothing personal kimi!" I yell as loud as I can, getting ready to fight my friend as she bellows like a hollow Her stance is more....ogre like now, and her hair is mane of flowing white hair.Howtohandlethis.My mind screams at me, that something is wrong.I can sense kimi's unqiue reiryoku and that of a hollow but...not as I imagined,stappled together its....merged and swirled into a mess.What...has kimi becomeShe screams and rush me,barely looking like herself.cont

https://youtu.be/ZZD6weQ_MV8-I raise a finger, blue energy sparking from it as kimi runs towards me, vanishing and reappearing in smears and billows of smoke. Not doubt trying to confuse me and hide her true movements. I just purse my lips as I wordlessly cast Byakurai. Arcs of lightning fly from my finger tips in bursts, hitting kimi directly in her chest. I see bursts of blood and smoke as she keeps running at me, seemingly ignoring or unable to feel the pain of my kido. Blood drips down her chest.I frown and begin to fire more as she rushes me like she's charging across a battle field, the Byakurai's slamming into and around her, but she just flows around them, turning to her namesake as she comes towards me.I keep casting the spell, I still have enough distance I don't have to worry but...but what is she? She isn't like any hollow I've seen, she feels different. And not like my studies would suggest. Hmm, was she always different? She had an unusually high Reiryoku when she showed up from nowhere and she remembers her previous life even if its just in bits and pieces at a time.Dust and smoke fills the air as I ponder this."Just what are you" I ask under my breath as I raise my finger as I see her shadow rise from the shadow.Leaping at me.-Hollow kimiBlood blood blood, my own blood. I can smell it the smell of smoke....burning blood, boiling blood. Its intoxicating, that smiling fox made me bleed, but I can taste him from here. Pain...pain is good, helps me focus. Let him try that little trick after I swallow his arm! That hurt so much, I just need to repay the favor.the dust clears and I look down to see another arc of lightning piercing my chest, as he looks up at me with a serious expression.I hit the dirt and roll. He walks over me, blade raised.I stand and feel a light tingle in my throat-I stand over kimi, and she stands back up, her mask opening as I can see her eyes behind her mask. I pause again, hesitating as that feeling of unease falls on me again. I am facing the unknown, I have no idea what kimi is now...What kimi is in general! this is what I dreamed of but....is this what its like or did I just find an exception to all the rules?I don't know, but I do know she's the key andsmoke swirls around her mouth as a blood right light glows from inside her.

>>1289932Short term survival is one of our priorities here, along with not hurting Kimi as much as possible. And besides, Hollows have gotten into SS before, and Aizen is more than crafty enough to come up with a cover story as we walk back to the Seireitei.
>>1289955But we are the hollow. And even if we are back to normal by then, we still did a CERO.A thing only High Teir hollows have.High teir hollows that pose significant threat to the SS if they get in.
The ear piercing wail, I step to the side. Yeah, usually ceros don't reek of blood like that, or are entangled with smoke. Interesting, but kimi usually is, and I shouldn't be surprised about the smoke as that's the form her reiryoku and reiatsu takes. I glance over my shoulder as it fires past me, digging a trench in the soft ground before it explodes and leaves a sizable hole behind me.Hmm, smaller than most ceros I've seenI turn back to kimi, blood dripping down the teeth of her mask as she wheeze and huffs, struggling to breath as smoke pours from her mask as well. Her eyes meet mine, and I can see the whites of her eyes have turned blackI narrow my eyes....trying to place exactly WHAT is making me feel so uneasy standing infront of her.I've killed so many hollows but this is....odd, it just doesn't feel right something is certainly off here.Fascinating, but terrifying. I mean part of me wonders why I'm not more excited but...I know they answer, my life work has borne fruit finally and now I have to figure out how to fix it,and save poor kimi.The sound of a hollow roar mixed with a battle cry rises out of her throat as she starts to stand.What do I do Impale, and pin her to the ground 1d100 Knock her back with a solid, powerful swing 1d100 try and make her recognize me Release my shika flash step away Use kido on her 1d20 try to restrain her 1d20write in >>1289938So he doesn't spill it. of course

I yell as she starts to approach me again, dragging her sword on the ground and cackling as her eyes narrow"You" She says, in a deep, echoing voice "trick me, now I am going to ehehehe"She charges me, swinging her blade in kimi's bizzare style, but much faster than usual and...primal. But I manage to block and counter most of her strike. But I do not retaliate, I just keep holding her at bay and nothing else.She's sick, I need to cure her, I need to fix her.. She's my friend, she turned me away from the shadow in my heart, she made me remember why I became a shinigami, I learned to care again. And I do not want my dream to be achieved at the cost of a friends life!Her blade digs into my shoulder, ripping into my flesh and making me bleed as she makes a growling, inhuman laugh.I exhale and push her blade up and away with the flat of mine. She tries to swing again and I just sidestep. She stumbles having put all of her weight into the swing.

>>1289989>>1289983I would like to also add on: try to awaken Kimi's sense of honor and dignity. Remind her of whats truly important to her.Hugging her seems a bit pat and somewhat unwise given the circumstances. But I don't mind if it happens.
>>1289992But I'm legitimately curious as to what happens when you fuck a Hollow/Soul reaper. And if you CAN fuck a Hollow/Soul reaper.
>>1289994I honestly don't think hugging her will do anything, other than risk Aizen potentially dying.

Kin....the 99th bakudo spell. And perfect in this situation. Kimi growls as she starts to stand back up from the dirt she fell into, her purple eyes glaring back at me hatefully as she turns to swing at me again, that damn hollow wail flowing out of her lips and mixing with her shouted battle cry-Hollow kimiThat bastard looks down at me with pity!? lets see how much of that he haves when I'm chewing on his skull? Huh lets see how smug he is then,acting like he's better than me. Well I made him bleed now, So he can't be too strong can he? He's just meat acting high and mighty, above its station, insulting me and hurting me! I'll pay him back ten fold for every pain he forced upon me!Huh? Is he offering his arms to me or something,why is he holding them out like that is he an idiot or something? Why is he holding them to his sides?Well I don't care, it just makes it easier to cut one of them off, wait what's he doing with his hands now? Who cares I can taste his steaming blood alreadyEh? What's with my arms,why are they twisting...KIDO!! What's with that fabric! YOU BASTARD I'LL KILL YOU-Kimi roars at me,her mask's mouth opening as the spiritual bindings wrap her arms around her her back,the iron rods flying down into them.Then her body begins to blacken, first starting with her skin,then her mask and the stuff that turned her arms and hands into those claws.Huhright, she can turn into smoke can't sheWELL, I just need to crush her with my reiatsu!roll 1d20

She screams and roars, managing to stand to her feet, piece of her flowing away on the wind as she glares me down, her black eyes narrowing to the point I can barely see any of the exotic purple in them, her claws digging into and pulling uselessly at the wrappings around her arms, the iron rods stabbing deeper into her arms as she wails and screams at me. I release my reiatsu letting its full weight out and focus it on her, the ground around us getting pressed down and crushed as Kimi struggles to stay standing for all of one second before she collapse to the floor, struggling to breath as she cries out in wailing pain, her bones starting to get crushed until I lighten the load, allowing her to breath but not move.She growls at me, snapping her mask's mouth and struggling to claw me as I walk up to her."Now"I say crouching in front of her and frowning "how do I bring kimi back"She spits another black ball of smokey energy at my head"Hmm" I say, placing my hand just under her four hornsWhat do I do? ask her what she is....since she's clearly nearly hollow but....repeat the way of bushido to hertry to rip the mask offsmash the maskRemind her off the sake and pork I owe herMaybe trauma could make her come back?

I sit down in front of her, pushing back my own ego and joy at the fact that my dream had existed right in front of me for five years. I can't celebrate until I figure out away to bring kimi back,and failing that a way to keep her contained to keep her and others safe from harm.But....still that question is gnawing at the back of my mind. Her Reiryoku is....weird, its been muddled since this happened to her and...well its just odd. According to my studies she should feel like half hollow and half shinigami but instead it all mixed up and merged. its a very odd feeling, maybe I was just wrong but this is getting on my nerves now, and I know she couldn't give me a straight answer now of all times but stillI say it aloud anyways, speaking my mind."What are you?" I ask angrily, leaning closer to her as she glares up at me, still trying to attack me, but not using her Cero? Maybe Kimi is resisting in there somewhere? She always was a very....forceful personality "You're clearly nearly hollow, you look pretty hollow now but...it doesn't add up"I shake my head and sigh"it doesn't add up" I groan as I lean forward, how am I going to bring her Wait...WAIT"BUSHIDO, THE BUSHIDO CODE" I yell in my excitement as she stares up at me and I frown"and you are breaking it right now, terribly breaking it"She just narrows her eyes."Are you acting righteous?" I ask, leaning closer to her, even she tries to squirm close enough to head but me "Are you showing heroic courage"She wails at me and tries to kick me, but I catch her foot, feeling the force that could snap weaker bones"Are you benevolent or compassionate?" I ask sadly, talking down to her as shudders and kicks my side with incredible strength "You aren't showing me respect, you have no integrity now"She stops kicking me, I'm going to be bruised because of that....I can tell already."You have no honor like this, right now your duty is abandoned and you've forgotten where your loyalties lie" I say sadly, brushing her hair out of her eyes "You aren't in control of yourself"She freezes up and closes her eyes, shuddering as smoke pours out of her-hollow kimiNo no no,stay asleep, we can still rip him apart, just stay inside a little longer! what? are you going to let him talk to you like that? Insult you? He has no respect for you! stay put and let me finish this!STOP FIGHTING DAMMIT, STAY IN YOUR CHAINS, DON'T TRY AND FU-Kemuri KimiCK YOU! I am not going to hurt my friends like this and act like a monster because you wanted to take my body out for a stroll like some kind of idiot, you're just a part of hk am I? or is it the other way around hkI scream, struggling and fighting against my restraints, my mind in turmoil from what just happened, and what I just remembered, and what I did too poor Sosuke."Kimi! remember,I promised you Sake and fried pork" He says, holding me in place as the mask covering my face and the hollowy bits on me burn up and cont

The knowledge of the nature of hollows and ghosts in general might get a bit of a shaking up in the near future.I wonder if anyone will pick up where Aizen decided to leave off and achieve some of canon Aizen's goals.Hope Aizen locked his research away nice and tight.
"So....were the results what you wanted?" I ask, feeling like I I did when I first woke up in the soul society"Yes and no"He says gently "I just wanted to prove my theory,not this""Yeah, I can tell since I took a bit out of you" I sigh closing my eyes, feeling just how tightly my arms are bound together "hey, can I go to sleep now""Of course after that, I think we both deserve some rest" He says warmly as I chuckle, coughing and tasting burning smoke"Yeah, turning into a soul eating monster for about a few minutes really wears you out" I sigh,laying my head down on something soft, well I'm trying my best to ignore the implications of all of that right now"So does seeing your friend turn into one,but just rest, I can last longer without it than you can, and you used up a lot of energy and willpower, Kimi, so just....sleep" He says, somewhere above me as I try to stop breathing so heavily"Thanks Sosuke, for keeping your promise I'm sorry I..did all that" I say as I yawn, and start to fade out of the waking worldthe last thing I hear being "it wasn't your fault it was.....mine"Before I fall into fitful, nightmare filled nap.-and we'll end hereI've archived and will answer questionsWoooooohope you enjoyed
>>1290064Great thread as always HM, thanks for running. This was by far the longest thread I've ever been a part of, holy hell. Glad we finally got to see our mask for real, though the implication that there's a THIRD being made from Kimi's soul is disturbing to say the least. Anyway, I've had a headache for the past 3 hours and I'm not really lucid at the moment. Goodnight/morning everyone, see you next thread.
>>1290064Thanks for running HM, it was a blast per usualBoy this was a long one I'm going to go pass out now
>>1290064Thanks HM, totally enjoyed it.Quick question for my little writing project: did you give any thought to how Kimi met Saigo? Was she fighting for anyone else before him? Any thought given to how she learned how to use a blade? Self-taught? Watched others?I was kinda assuming that the reason she was able to get in good with her eventual comrades was that her skills largely spoke for themselves. I was going off the assumption that she didn't have much in the way of a formal training or education, but her skills largely spoke for themselves and thats how she got in with Saigo's forces.Any thoughts on the sorts of battles she was involved in before Shiroyama? Big ones small ones?And, incidentally, there is no problem if you either don't want to answer or can't for whatever reason. I am flexible enough to make things work in a more vague and nebulous way.Thanks again.
>>1290071Ronin before Saigo, as he was the first she saw worthy as her master/lordWatched Samuria who served her father, but taught and learned how to use her blade herself with what she remembered and saw as a basis when she leftShe was involved in all sorts, as she'd try to practice her blade whenever she could, and tended to follow those she considered friends into battlemeaning she has experience with quite a few types of warfare.Like she's held forts, charged in open warfare, took part in sieges, ran through arrow volleys, got into drunken fights...etcso she fought in variety of battles.But the biggest was Shiroyama,and that was the only one she didn't just go to test herself or because her friends/comrades were therethat was the one she dedicated herself to, and tried to die at, but....survived after being shot three times in the chest,which she still has the scars of
>>1290075Alright, thanks. That helps a lot.
>>1290064Passed out before the end but thanks for the thread HM, was super fun.
Damn, just woke up, good shit. Gonna have to hit Aizen over the head for thinking that pork and sake brought us back when we wake up though.
>>1290075So it looks like we killed all our comrades? Is AIzen going to tell Kimi?
>>1292041And if he does tell us. How will honor color our reaction? We did swear to kill the hollow who did it so will Kimi commit seppuku to follow through on the code or not?
>>1292158>>1292041Makin a lot of assumptions there.Still not crystal clear exactly what happened, but didn't Kimi recall fighting the thing herself as well?How do you explain her outside perspective in her memory? Was she having a Fight Club dissociative identity moment? I'm not saying it's impossible, just that it is anything but certain and would need something to explain it.As for killing herself if it is true? She might feel like crap and want to crawl into a hole and die . . . but at this point I would make the argument that taking her own life would not be the most honorable course of action under nearly any interpretation of Bushido.She still has a crucial responsibility and obligation to her lord with whom she currently serves in good standing. Taking her own life would be an act of selfish escape from her grief. You would have a much better case if it turned out she had somehow killed Saigo, her prior lord, but that's impossible since the historical record has him dying during the battle of Shiroyama, not after.Furthermore, she already IS dead. The rules of Bushido, unsurprisingly, don't exactly cover that.
>>1296068It's entirely possible that the hollow that killed her comrades is still out there but that event was so important for her that it was imprinted on her soul and now her hollow form looks similar because of it. Or something like that.
>>1296068It could be her remembering eating their souls after the fight. Given her memory is fucked anyways and she really should not be able to remember who she was. This is distinctly possible given they would all have unfinished business in the way of the betrayal and regret over what happened.
