Previous:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive/1288062/Char Sheet: http://pastebin.com/fUKdUWLF-Grey sky, cold air. Can barely breath, eyes burn and my chest hurts...or maybe its just my heart that's hurting. I can still feel the bindings Aizen bound me with when I was. My mind forces itself away from that thought as I slump forward, running my hands through my hair, feeling just drained...no that's not the right word. I feel more than drained, I feel like I've just been thrown into a war after being starved for a year, every part of me is sore and feels like its been stabbed through and stitched back into place with Ice. I feel sick because...because. I groan sickly as I try to force myself to think about what happened what I am but....my entire existences turns away, trying to deny it as my very soul seems to cry in protest. I just want to run away somewhere, but I can't. to stubborn and tired to and I'm disgusted with myself for not wanting to face all this, and for....yeah.Sosuke is standing next to me, I can tell because of the pressure on my shoulders, but it isn't comforting it's just heavy. He clears his throat, and I glare at him through my fingers. My knuckles are still bleeding from when I woke back up and saw that mask laying in front of me.He smiles weakly, awkwardly for once not having a goddamn thing to say to me. I can see the pity in his eyes, and it just pisses me off more."Kimi" He says after who knows how long, must've been at least a minute of silence before he spoke "I....I'm sorry I let my thirst for knowledge bring you here""That's the fifth time you said something like that" I say coldly as he sits next to me."I'm just trying to make sure you know I'm....sorry" He says hanging his head "I never knew that would happen""Just stop talking about it" I bark at him as he sighs and looks towards the sky"I already have a cover story ready for all this you know" He says, sounding feverish, like he was just forced to down a shot of burning sake "It came to me while you were unconscious, and I think it would be best if you followed it to the letter"he turns to me as I just keep staring at the devastation in front of me, my zanpakuto sitting in my legs. Sosuke waits for a response, I give him none.He turns away from me, crossing his arms and closing his eyes as he repeats the plan that must've ran through his head a thousand times already or maybe more."A menos somehow appeared in here unexpectedly, drawn by our reiryoky most likely" he says, adjusting his glasses "You were injured in battle, however the hollow was dealt with before it could cause anymore damage like you see before you....yes it seemed like it was just an hollow overconfident in its own power, that was vanquished by me and Kemuri...yes, yes I will investigate in how such a thing got here, yes, thank you for understanding"He turns to me, smiling with a pained look in his eyes.cont

"Why haven't you gotten me a very strong drink yet" I ask, my voice sound...hollow as his expression falls, making my glare deepen, I hate when people think I need pity, I've gotten this far in life without it but...but maybe I need it now since I. I lower my head with a growl, my thoughts blanking out as I once more involuntarily move away from what's eating at my heart right now."I don't think booze will help you now, this isn't something a hangover can fix Kimi" He says, putting his hand on my shoulderI snarl "It'll make me forget!""and what good would that do?" He asks, leaning back as I turn away from him grimmacing"What else am I supposed to do!?" I scream, not at him, or anything just...a question for any who'll listen.He pauses, lowering his head as his frown deepens and he sighs"I don't know, no ones been through what you just suffered you're....a unique specimen" He says, grabbing my shoulder, his own slacking as he pushes his glasses up with a single finger "You're a shinigami who is also a...a hollow somehow"He smiles, looking up as he continues "You're exactly what I dreamed off, but made...naturally and I never expected it to be like this"I frown as he leans closer to me."if I was you I'd flee before someone finds out" He says quietly "if I was nearly executed for simply studying this then"He looks scared, for meWhat do I say Bah, I've never ran in my life, not starting now Hmmph, I still have my lord to serve, abandoning him now would be worse than death Well I'm not you Oh? to where! tch, I'm sure you...you can find a way to fix this, right?

"Bah!" I yell, rolling my head to look at him as I stand back up and rest my zanpakuto on my shoulders "I've never ran in my life, not starting now""I figured as much, I'm just saying what I'd do if I found out I was" He stops short, noticing my sour expression, and takes a sharp breath "I just know what will happen if you're found out""And you and I are the only two that know about it" I say bluntly as I close my eyes "Besides, I still have my lord to serve, abandoning him now would be worse than death itself""...The honor of a samurai' He chuckles, shaking his head as he stands with me "Well, lets hope no one besides us figures out, hmm?""Yeah, lets" I say, nodding in agreement as he stands by my side in this empty, destroyed field "Otherwise I'll meet the executioners blade"Aizen winces and shakes his head for a moment"Well...its worse than that' He says quietly, wait...how exactly do they execute people here "But the fact stands, this must remain a secret""Hmm, unless I can control it" I say, lifting one of my hands from my blade and stare at it, clenching it into a fist "Maybe we could change that, if I control it""Still, even if you can they...why would they want whatever you are serving them? you are ...at least partially the thing we're supposed to hunt and protect against" He says, his glasses catching the sun's glare again "sure they might see the logic in it, accept my research and the truth of you but....I don't like the odds kimi, and lets just try and keep this as secret as possible. for both our safety"I frown and begin to walk away from him before I chuckle and turn back to him."Well Aizen, today's your lucky day, cause you just got a willing test subject" I say, watching him smirk as the sun begins to set on us "to figure out why this...why I'm lake this""If someone finds my notes they might expose or make something like you" He says hanging his head, before he rolls it around and looks up with a smile "But still, we must take risks to protect what we love, no? Still I have no idea where we would start, besides maybe finding some kind of harmony between your two opposite natures...but how would be""Tch, don't worry about it now, lets just get out of here and stop acting so suspicious about it, we need time to figure it out anyways" I say, forcing a smile as he nods"Just don't try and run away from it kimi, or you might end up like Kenpachi" He says calmly walking beside meWhat do I do try and come to terms with what I am 1d20+will Get shitfaced let someone else in on the secret continue about my day the best I can Make the report with aizen See if Kotei and bloody have anything to say about this Train Ask Aizen if he has any idea on how to ....control this besides what he just said vent some anger in sparring/ my duties in the living world write in

I don't notice much on the walk back, I don't know how long it took to get back to the seireitei proper and I'm only vaguely aware of what time of day it is when we do get back. My mind is on other things the entire trip, no way in hell could I pay attention to or even notice small details like that. My body is like a puppet as my mind falls to turmoil and a near instinctive hate filled confusion. But I can clear it away, I know I can, I've had to deal with feelings like this when I was young, self spate and disgust in what I was, I'm sure I did. I mean how else am I so casual about what I am....was, someone who made killing an art. I had to have gone through personal turmoil then to decide exactly what sort of killer I was. And I know how I think, I never denied it and I take a little pride in it, but do not tout it and wave it around like a flag. I'm good at killing, but I'm not some blood hungry lunatic, I'll leave that too kotei.So unless I want to lose my mind by constantly avoiding the truth of the matter, the truth that has written itself into my blood. The facts I don't want to face, and implications they bring with them like some kind of foul tasting wind.I...I am a hollow or at least I'm nearly one? Partially one? I don't know but just thinking about this makes me feel sick to my stomach, because I know what those things are like, I've killed more than enough to know what they do. I've seen how the hunt innocent souls. I don't want to be a monster like them, I can't be, I am not like that. It scares me, is that what I'm doomed to become? Or am I already lost. I don't want to know, but I have to find out. I have to. But...I'm not sure if I can. I am a hollow or at least something close to it.Right I'm...Aizen said I am a unique case, maybe that means I'm less of a monster than the rest.Maybe it means I'm just like them. Who fucking knows. It hurts my head thinking about it. And there's no way in hell I can face the implications of this. Because the mask that was on my face belonged to the same beast I know I remember seeing devouring the souls of my dearest comrades at Shiroyama. And...and what that could mean sickens me.My heart feels like its been stabbed as my thoughts wanders to the possibilities, I feel faint and sick and"Tenth seat Kemuri Kimi" A voice I don't know rings out in my ears bringing me back to reality"is what Lieutenant Aizen Sosuke says true? did a menos truly appear before you as you sparred?"I stare up at the odd, foreign looking man, I'm pretty sure I know who he is, but my mind is in no state to remember him."Yes, it took us entirely by surprise and" I pause as aizen glances at me and nods "Nearly overwhelmed me before we managed to defeat it""Yes, it must've been one of those rare few" He says grimly "and as I said I have no idea how it got in here"cont
>>1320933"Hmm, well this is certainly foreboding news, but I can tell both of you are shaken up by this and...well not like either of you can tell me anymore, but if I have reason to believe so, I'll have to interrogate both of you further" He says calmly "if this was truly just an oddity as Aizen suggests, we'll have no reason to investigate any further , but you both understand, you have dealt with the reason why we're being upmost cautious with an...odd happening such as this""I understand" Aizen says bowing "I'll hold no ill will if you must"I say nothing and just grip my zanpakuto tightly."Well both of you are excused, until we have reason to call you back again" the man says, motioning to let us know we can stand.I turn to smoke as soon as I can, as soon as I step into the hall, leaving Aizen alone as he tries to speak to me.I flow away to a peaceful place, away from noise and sound, and set my zanpakuto down on my lapAnd try to find the peace and harmony of mind I need to to travel inside of it and meet its inhabitantsroll 1d20+will

I focus on my unsheathed zanpakuto gripping its glades tightly yet somehow I don't cut my fingers on its razor sharp edge. The metal starts to warm as the cold air around me begins to soften and heat up as I control my breathing and heart beat, calming myself down despite all of what I know now and the things I am still choosing to ignore and keep out of my head.My heart beats faster and panic fills me, before I quash it back down and swallow my dread, taking a deep breath. I taste cinders and smoke, feel my throat burn and chathe from the heat. Gunpowder and the smell of blood filling my nostrils as dying screams and gunfire drown out everything else.My eyes shoot open, and I'm in a battlefield of burnt, blood stained skeletons and corpses, laying among them in the broken armor I wore that day, the chest piece blasted to pieces, and my white hair hanging messily over my eyesMy chest hurts like it did that day, and when I try to sit up, the corpses hold me down.All I can do is crane my head up, and see bloody, drinking blood from a gourd meant for sake.Kotei is laughing somewhere, as strange figures in the edge of my eyes flow past, howling an all to familiar roar."Glad you're awake, my empress" He says, bowing his head slightly "You must be very confused, as these are not the fields you know"they aren't, they're filled with corpses and fire rather than smokey grass and tombs.What do I do? angrily as him what the hell is going onask him and kotei if they knew Ask him for help/ Guidance break free and interrogate him 1d20+str Lay down, and ask what I am write in

"Did you know!" I yell, accusingly as his fang filled grin widens as he pours the thick rotted blood down his throat, chuckling a gurgling chuckle"How couldn't I?" He says, sounding a bit ashamed as Kotei skips over to me, dragging her arms like the upper half of her is asleep or dead"We thought you'd know!" She laughs "I mean think about it, how much blood you drink with me to fix yourself, its...similar is it not, or am I just rubbing off on you, wifey?!""I wouldn't go that far" Bloody grunts "But we are connected to you, we fight beside you, kill with you and""DRINK DEEP THE BLOOD OF ALL YOU FELL" Kotei screams, leaning close to me, the demonic side of her face grinning as she laughs and giggles madly"YES" Bloody chuckles before he turns to me and composes himself "But how could we tell you? One of us you find disgusting, and well, you were just to...weren't ready, we couldn't it would've broken you"I glare at them as Kotei giggles"Yeah, shame she hates you so much huh bloods?" She cackles, smacking her other half hard enough to crack his jaw "damn heathen, keeping secrets from our empress like that""Oh, you did the same" he growls"She never asked" She laughs, turning to me "Besides look at what knowing has done to her and the place?""Both of you, please be quiet" I sigh as Bloody lifts kotei up by her neck"oh so commanding" Kotei says, looking lost in pleasure as bloody nods"At once my empress" he says calmly, still holding Kotei like a doll "good, now what exactly am I?" I ask as I lay back in the ground, the bones loosening their grips "Huh,do either of you know that?! can you tell me that! no games, for the love of""MY WIFE" Kotei yells, turning to blood and dripping out of bloody's hands, trying to throw herself at me, before he grabs her leg"Stop" he says sternly, his voice shaking the ground as he pulls her back "And...to the best of my abilities, you are...an oddity"He puts his hands on his knees, closing his eyes as his mane of hair blows behind him."Your heart was filled with regret, anger, hate, things that kept you trapped in the mortal world after your death" He says calmly like he's chatting about the weather "The shame of living on when your master fell, the shame of being the soul survivor, unable to right the wrongs she saw""Like I don't know that" I growl angrily "But why am I different from everyone else, why am I...this abomination?!""Because...do you really think that you were guided to the soul society" He asks as Kotei chuckles"No one ever chose your path for you, it was just you and me, blood and steel" She giggles happily under bloody's arm "Maybe you were a little hollow when you were alive,empress? All that killing and bloodshed changes a person even if they aren't doing it out of a love for carnage and murder""What the hell are you two even talking about, can't you just give me a straight answer" I ask sternlycont
>>1321143"For once, tell me what I am and why I am! Stop playing around and answer me""You're an oddity, something that's....well, you were lost" Bloody says, lowering his head "But found. When you died, you were already on the verge of becoming a hollow, so strong your regret in life was but....something happened didn't it? Something that shouldn't have by all means""But it did,and it kept you for me! all proud and rebellious as always, perfect for breaking apart and making subservient" Kotei says, trying to crawl to me, as Bloody squeezes her tightlyI glare at them and bloody bows his head"forgive me, but its hard to explain since....you don't remember how you ended up where you are, its something you want to forget" He says softly, holding his hand out to me "its just too much of a toll on your heart and mind, perhaps forgetting that is what let you become this....merging of two possibilities""Yep!" Kotei cackles "One path would've led to you being a perfectly boring shinigami, the other a soul hungry hollow, but you chose neither""Let go of all the failures and regrets you had and move on, or embrace them and stubbornly cling to the living world" Bloody says calmly "You did both, you regretful soul finding peace right as"Kotei, shoves her hand into my chest, laughing as it goes right through it without tearing anything"As that pesky chain of fate ate itself all up" She says with a grin "So you didn't need help passing on and you kept you your precious heart for me to squeeze dry, my love""But your soul, my dear empress, was torn between these two fates, which had intermingled and blurred" He says, his eyes turning blood red as smoke flows from his lips "together, in choosing neither, you had suffered both fates""And then....then poor little kimi got all locked away, leaving a shell for so long, as you struggled to" She says, poking my head with her claws, stabbing the bone under my skin "piece herself back together""An iron will is like a good sword and a cool head" Bloody says "it will protect you and take you far, you woke up, one day and all you knew began to trickle through the cracks, instead of being locked away""And taken away" Kotei sneersI stare at them, trying to figure out what the hell they mean"Ha, so I guess you two won't guide me to find out what that all means for me, and what I am truly" I sigh shaking my head"We cannot guide you in this matter" Bloody says with a smirk "or maybe we can" Kotei says, grabbing my face as she licks my blood from her fingers"And I did tell you what you are, you held to the regrets that left you trapped, but found peace before they devoured your heart, you are...something like a hollow, but you remained you, as fate had made a mistake, instead of leaving you a plus without her memories, or a hollow with only hunger, you were already confusing as is even without this conflict, so instead of your fate being bound by one" He explainscont
>>1321197"Your road became both" Kotei says licking her teeth "And neither""As I said, you're an oddity, a thing that's nearly hollow" Bloody says as I glare at both of them and groan, laying my head down again into the blood made mud"And you two are sure you can't guide me, because you seem to know a lot about it" I say coldly as both of them laugh"Face the past, and you might not need guiding" Bloody snarls"Conquer yourself, and you'll have all you need" Kotei giggles "not like we can help with either, its all you love, SO DON'T FUCK UP""Or maybe we could" Bloody says shrugging "it is a blurry line after all, between us and you"What do I do? leave my zanpakuto Try and remember 1d20+will Ask what they're playing at and that means? .....So I shouldn't exist is what you're saying? it should've either been someone else in my body or a hollow, I shouldn't have ever picked up a zanpakuto...as myself Godamn, why are you two being so secretive all of a sudden Kotei, I'll give you my blood if you tell me You two are hiding something....well might as well study with you two while I'm here write in

"And that means?" I ask, shrugging my shoulders, as I force Kotei away from me with a flick of my wrist, grabbing my blood in her as she tries to lick the few stray drops dripping down my face "What are you two playing at, that is exactly a straight answer""You're you, my wife" Kotei laugh, struggling against my hold, as her joints melt into blood and reform as she slowly tries to work herself closer to my face again, looking like she's nearly breaking her body as she does it "And indeed, what are we playing""Hmm, its a straight as the answer ever will be, only you and yourself can answer what that means truly" Bloody says crossing his "now stop asking questions or I'll rip you apart, with all due respect, my empress""yeah all this talking is making me hungry, can't I have a finger or two" Kotei groans, hanging over me, held up by my own blood in her stomachHer drool drips down from her open mouth, dripping on my face as bloody guzzels more blood down. I stare past them both, the gunshots echoing in the distance turning dull as I watch smoke wrap around the blood red moon like a grasping hand. Blood.Blood and smokeI can smell both of them now. Everything gets fuzzy and distance as the two smells merge together like two drunk dancers or dead swordsmen. My headaches and I don't feel the bones under me.My body feels weak, tired....like I'm dying-18+4=22-I can...I can see it, a moonlit night, the scent of blood and gunpowder thick in the air, my lungs burning as my chest heaves and falls, aching because of the metal left inside of it. My thoughts fall in my head, the bandages that kept my wounds closed unraveling as I run through the night in a blind panic, on instinct, trying to get back to the place I was supposed to die, where I should've died! All logic is gone, besides knowing my finale duty, to get back to that damned battlefield where this country's spirit was betrayed and spat on.I'm being chased, by so called authorities and men my father sent to bring me home. My broken sword is dripping with their blood, from where it had been shattered by a stray shot as I fell to the ground.The air is cold as death, and I have a new wound in my side, sucking my life out of me from a hole the side of my thumb.its a feverish night, like a play, or a poem made by a dying man. Maybe its both? I'm so close to where I need to die, I need to get there before my injuries or the men chasing me take me. I need to get there, I need to be among my comrade, I can hear there voices on the wind, they're calling for me. I want to go home finally, and leave this ruined body of mine. I can finally fix my mistake of living and clean myself of the dishonor of living when my lord died, I can finally join them and remove the stain of misfortune and survival from myself. I'm so close...I can't fix this ruined country, but I can leave it with my own pride intact!cont

I...its the oni. That oni, the one who's been chasing me for days, I can't fight it in a state like this. Its been toying with me, ever since I was pulled from the battlefield half dead, I should've died there but I continued on like some kind of sick joke and this thing has been trying to kill me, but I won't die away from my lost comrades. I've seen it, eating people in a few bites, even swallowing a few whole. Its a monster, a demon I can't fight. But I hate it, I saw it when I lay there, between this world and the next. It....ate my friends' souls and those of the army around it, and other demons that tried to steal its feast. And it was too greedy to let me escape....I can't kill it injured like I am. And I know what it will do to me if it catches meMaybe those men can kill it, maybe they can steal my revenge. I glance back the anger dulling my pain as I decide that I won't let myself be humiliated anymore. I am the only one who can kill that.I stop, just at the bottom of the lonely hill where my real family was buried. My heart runs cold as the oni rips one of the men in half like a piece of meat, and his friends fire wildly, the bullets going through it. But there's no blood.What are they doing? How could they miss!? I knew they were unskilled dogs but. I watch the Blood soaked oni drag its white knuckles over the ground, its white hair flowing like a kimono in the breeze, as the men don't even try to run from it. It grabs one and the others try to run, but get stopped by an unseen force as the oni's mask splits open, two horns on eachside of it.The man looks back, screaming before his head and shoulders vanish in the things mouth.My sword hand lowers as a cold breeze washes over me. Wait, they can't see it? Why can't they see it? are they just idiots.I wince, as the demon goes about taking the other men apart like its a game. I begin to run up the hill, the full moon guiding me through this dark night, shining like a silver pool high above my head.Well, what ever those honorless cowards are doing, they're giving me time....time totime to do what?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PxnldM43rXY-I clutch my side, blood washing over my fingers as I walk up the lonely path winding up the hill like a snake, pain stabbing into me like a water chilled blade. I take one last look back, the smell of gunpowder and blood washing over me again and nearly making me sick...I'm tired, I want to rest my eyes, but I still have work I must do. And with their screams on my back I walk forward, hearing them die with every step I take, smiling as I go. Stumbling up to the walls, I lean on the cold stone as I push open the blood red gate. It creaks open, sounding like rusted metal as I walk in, every step another battle, I'm dizzy and tired, and my head is fighting against me. Telling me to stop and give up. But I push those thoughts back and burn away whats trying to keep me out of this memory.The stones, stand out in the moonlight, like so many gems unpolished and left in the dirt. The grass is covered in dew and the dirt is wet.My feet drag, I'm sluggish and on my last few breaths. Tonight...will be the last night of my life, I can tell. But I have one last poem to write, and one last fight to have.Then...Then this scarred, ruined body of mine can finally rest and I can write the end of this ugly, terrible joke my life has become."Begin" I say to myself, pressing the broken edge of my blade into the stone they left here to mark the grave of all my comrades in arms, the one that will soon be mine.Pressing my body against it, I take a breath and clear my mind of all worries, the screams of the demon falling silent as I go to work."The emperor's bloody tax, drained us of our pride and honor" I write, smiling as I carve the Kanji into the stone "Bushido torn apart and tossed aside, a white flower left alone to wilt in a field of blood and fire. The blades left to rust and all honor left to rot. The white flower was all that remained off the battle, and once it has been plucked from this earth, all that will remain of the samurai and Nippon's honor"Hmm, now how do I finish this off.I remember the name I gave myself, by mangling the name of my family, out of spite?Rebellion? I can't remember"All that will remain, is smoke. Smoke is all the remains, Goodbye and may you all choke on the smoke you've made, Signed Kemuri kimi, the last true unbowed samurai"I grin, leaning against the stone as I finish. I can hear the oni, dragging its knuckles across the ground like an ape, smacking its teeth the stench of blood it carries washing over me. I just turn around, leaning against the stone and slowly pushing myself up as straight as I can stand, savoring my breaths. Pain becomes dull, my mind sharpens and I feel alive again, the beat of battle playing in my heart as I watch open gate.The oni walks into view, looking at me with a permanent amused grin, that I copy. It looks at me, sniffing the air.cont
>>1321596"Still alive? among the living little fox?" it laughs deeply, taking a bite out of one of the screaming man it had been dragging along "oh what's the point, I'll devour you anyways, just end your suffering already""Pain is meaningless, suffering gives true color to light" I say, lowering my head and looking up at it, pointing my broken nodachi at it. The blood sticks to the blade, and the moon doesn't glint from the stained steel"Oh? Ohohohohoh, you think to fight me? You have no idea even what I am, this a pointless struggle!" the thing roars, its mask opening to show its second set of teeth, the ground cracking around it as I stare it down "Just give up already, I've been hungering for a taste of your flesh since before you were born, I have been hunting you, I dyed your hair white and made your eyes those pretty little gems"I narrow my eyes, hatefully. It...the bastard ruined not just my friends, but my mother to? I am....going to at least scar the bastard."Oh? Scared now, I don't blame your morsel" it laughs "Now sit still and let me get a taste! You're going to die anyways and do you really think you can stop me?!"What do I do? Tch, I don't care. If I can't kill you...I WILL GLADLY MARCH TO HELL MYSELF  You have learned nothing of me, after so many years, no die and choke on your own blood Look at my scars, do you really think I am dying?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ylyqoxh-cXk-"You have learned nothing" I say calmly, staring up at death itself as the moon hangs above us, shining through the trees like its watch me "of me, after so many years, now die and choke on your own blood. Look at my scars, do you really think I am dying? I have pulled through worse. I am going to taste your blood and spit on your corpse! BASTARD!"It begins to laugh at me again, sounding oh so inhuman and monstrous. So I spit on its cheek. Its black eyes narrow and it screams that wailing howl."So you die a fool" It cackles, its mask opening as it moves to bite my head off, its second set of teeth shining in the moon, coated in blood, fat and pieces of raw flesh.I tilt my head, I have one chance here. I must remain calm.I have killed many men before. This beast will be no different. I might be dying....but I am not gone let.the old ways of my home. Honor, dignity, Pride and loyalty. All of them will follow me in death. But I am going out. LIKE A BLAZING INFERNO!It lunges at me, and I wait till I feel its burning breath on my face and clutching my broken blade in both hands I stab forward, leaning towards it. My steel meets its flesh before its teeth meet mine.It looks confused as my blade passes its masks and sinks into its eye"How...how did you cut me?" It asks, reaching for the blood dripping out of its eye.It has shown me weakness, I smirk like a demon who has tasted blood and put all my weight and strength into pushing my blade deeper into its skull. "NEVER UNDERESTIMATE A SAMURAI! DOG" I Spit as I feel my weapon cut through bone, the creature wailing an ear piercing wail as it stands to its full height, taking me with itroll 1d20+1

Standing in its mouth I twist the blade around as it tries to bat me of with its bare hands and lighting that flies from it like arrows, arching back to me as I pry its mouth open and press the blade deeper, turning it nearly completely around as blood pools and flows from its mask. The lightning flows erratically, shocks jolting my body around like a puppet, but I am too stubborn to let go. Damn demons have tough hides, but their eyes are soft, still this is like cutting through wood. Its taking everything I have just to cut this thing and hang onto it.My legs shake as I keep its mouth open, pressing down on it so it just doesn't bite them off. Then it grabs me by the back of my clothes, and tosses me away like a broken toy.Roaring and screaming in rage and pain.roll 1d20+8

19+4= 23= success! (Sorry messed up how much endurance you started with)-I fly through the air like an arrow, wind whistling past my ears as the oni becomes a blur of mad movement, chasing after me like a dog after a stick. My back slams into stone, and it breaks before I do. Falling to the ground, my lungs empty of air and my head in a daze, I push myself up to my knees, feeling my ribs broken inside of me stabbing me like so many knives. Hurts to breath now, tasting blood, head....I can't see or think straight now, everything is so...fussy. Am I finally dying. I stare at my hands, almost like there's white smoke curling around them. Then I hear the oni's call and spit, clenching my fists around the hilt of my broken blade, standing back up as my vision goes back to normal. Every breath I take is torture, but I am still alive.The demon seems surprised by this, since people generally don't get back up after they've been thrown through stone. But...well I've been broken many times, and reforged. As long as I still have a will left in me to hold this blade of mine, I won't let myself die with it still clean.I turn it and hold it in a high stance as the oni runs at me, sparking like the sky in a storm.I let my breath out, dull pain filling me like sake's caress.what do I do?

"Saigo sama" I say tiredly, struggling to find the breath to speak as I grab the scabbard from my side, and grip it tightly, pointing my blade at him so he'll focus on it instead of my other hand "Buta....Goro....Haru...Daisuke....Jiro""Remembering the dead, worm?" it asks, spitefully, blood flowing down the side of its mask in five streaks "Pathetic""You devoured them" I say, staring at my scarred reflection in my broken nodachi "I'll cut them from your belly, demon!""YOU'LL BE JOINING THEM"It screams, throwing itself at me.I move my left arm, and it bites down on the first thing it finds. It glares me down, looking smug till it sees my smirk and feels my blade deep in its neck."HOW ARE YOU CUTTING ME" it screams, furiously biting through my scabbard like it was nothing "YOU AREN'T EVEN A....JUST DIE ALREADY"its too fast for me, and before I can do a thing, it has its teeth around my side, and they're sinking into my flesh.What do I do?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n5zGUDRKQKo20+20+4= 44!= GRAND SUCCESS! + double crit-I ignore the pain of my bones and organs being crushed by its bite and my skin tearing like wet paper. Instead of screaming out like a maiden being dragged away by a strange, lonely man, I just swallow my pain, and laugh."Another scar" I say, feeling my blood flow out of me and splash against the demon's teeth "is that is"in response it bites hard, and I still don't scream, even though I'm pretty sure I just felt something go squish. I close my eyes, and grab my blade with both hands, pressing it in side ways with great effort as the oni chews on me trying to make me break and scream. I don't. Instead I just slowly ease my nodachi deeper into its neck.I wince, hesitating as it the bones its biting crunch and snap like twigs, pain screaming in my head and erasing all other thoughts. Except the shame of living, and my burning desire for revenge. Everything under its bite is just minced meat now.But I don't give a damn, I just rip my blade in the opposite direction and it bites through me. Hmm, funny, its colder than I thought.It shrieks, my blood and meat coating its teeth as it clutches its neck, chanting a mantra of "How how how!" Over and over as I stand in the own graveyard staring up at it. Blood drips down my legs, there shaking as the thing begins to choke on its own blood. I just flick my blade around, struggling to breath with one working lung."HOW ARE YOU STILL STANDING, YOU CAN'T BE HUMAN, YOU SHOULD BE DEAD BY NOW!, YOU SHOULDN'T BE ABLE TO CUT ME DAMMIT!"

I can feel its strike in every bone in my body, and it sends me tumbling to the ground before I can catch myself on a grave. It says nothing as I sneer and look up at it, grinning drunkenly, barely feeling a thing with how much blood I'm losing right now."To spite you, of course I...I am going to die anyways" I say, unsteadily getting back on my feet "Why not go out with a bang anyways""Dumbass" it snorts, swinging down as I slice at its belly, managing to barely cut into its hide before it smacks me to the cold and wet ground.I look up at it, its single eye glowing with malice as we stand in this old graveyard the moon is shining full and bright above my head, like a pool of silver. Dull pain runs through me like a river as I lay on the ground, clutching my side as I try to keep me inside of me.The demon that took a bite out of me stands above me, laughing loudly as it drags its knuckles over the ground while I bleed out from the hole it left in me."Some bang" It says laughing at me as it reaches down for me.I grip my blade, looking down at my stomach...Why is there a chain in my chest?I shake my head, and it vanishes away, but starts coming back againWhat do I do? go for the throat 1d100 Take a few of its fingers 1d100 Cut its heel and stab it as it falls on me 1d100Spit in its eye 1d20+6 Wait for the right moment, then strike 1d20+4Stand back up 1d20+4 A last cup of sake.......white flower turns red......death is at the door smiling...I smile as I greet him as an old friend write in>>1322080and you're a mostly normal girl fighting a fucking hollow

its massive hand's fingers begin to curl, ready to scoop me up so it can chew me up. I wait, resting with my legs splayed out staring up at it as I wait for the perfect moment to strike. It just keeps chuckling at me, looking like it wants to get this done before I can wound it more. And it is already bleeding like a gutted pig. But I'm far worse off than it, as I unlike the oni, am dying. I sit there, waiting up it begins to lift me up, and opens it mask. Then I strike, cutting its arm open, blood spraying and warming up my cold face as its narrowed eye goes wide again, and the edge of my blade cuts through its teeth and chin. I can only laugh for a second or two before it tosses me away again.This time I hit a tree, and I think I just got impaled by one of its branchesroll 1d20+durability

I grab my gut and groan, tasting blood as it drips over my lips, gurgling out of my throat as I grab onto the broken branch stuck in my gut, slick with blood and my insides. The demon hollers with laughter, but it sounds hollow to my ears as it echos through the graveyard, and feels so very...very distant. I grab the branch and begin to pull as I feel its foots steps getting closer and closer to me.I can't hear what its saying to me, but insults mean nothing now. I am not dying like this...no no no no NO! I still have one thing left to do dammit! I need to kill this bastard! I can't die by a tree, gutted and left to bled like a fish! I can't die like this...I can't, I need to avenge them! I NEED TO KILL THE DEMON. I NEED TO FREE SAIGO SAMA, I CAN'T DIE LIKE THIS. GODS PLEASE JUST LET ME CLAIM ONE MORE LIFE, PLEASE!*Snap*I smile weakly, everything feeling cold as I gasp and groan happily, weakly. I broke it. I broke it. My body falls and hits the ground. Everything goes black.I hear the demon's wail and leap out of the way. Something rattles behind me as I hear the ground shatter like glass.I turn, and see a chain tying me to the stone in the center of a graveyard, sticking right out of my chest. I see the oni, standing framed by the moonlight.And a chill runs down my spine as I see myself, slumped against a tree. Missing a good portion of her stomach, my purple eyes half closed, blood covering my chin and chest. And a confident smile on my scarred lips, a peaceful...regretless smile.

And I'm bound here, to the place that is the symbol of all my failure, regret and sorrow...facing the thing I hate the most besides that damn traitorous coward of an emperor. Great, I've become an Onryō, maybe if I kill this thing I can pass on? Who knows, all I know is I still have my sword, and I just got a fresh..."body" to fight this thing with. But...that chain, it seems pretty solid since I can feel it anchoring me down, and the links are the size of my hand. Nice metal, thick to. Really thick. Hmm, I think I could use it to trip this thing, but I have to be smart about it and time it exactly right or its going to get another bite out of me and I'm not sure I'll survive that one. I hold my sword up, like I'm preparing a strike so it won't get any wind of my plan and let me feint with ease, while it'll put more effort into its charge to try and get to me before I can wound it once more. And just like I expected it, the demon picks up the pace, and turns to a blur, rushing at me with its mouth opened wide, ready to bite me in half.And at the last moment, I step out of the way,*Ker snap!**SLAM**CRACK*The chain breaks, but the oni trips, and breaks the lower half of its mask and jaw on one of the larger stones around us. It groans, its voice cracking with that demonic tone of his. Blood drips down the rock into the mud....seems like it was a sharp one.I chuckle as it turns back to and growls"You...ahahaha, you have no idea what you just did" He laughs, sounding like he's gone mad "you've just sealed your own fate, fool!"I pause, and shake my head, walking towards him as I swing my sword's flat end onto my shoulder and snort. I'm not going to listen to idle boasting.I cough, wince in pain as something pulls at my chest. I look down and see mouths on the chain, like the oni's chewing it away, nearly faster than I can see"Ahaha, you idiot, you broke your chain of fate" He says, pointing at me with a cruel sneer.Hmm, well, it can't be good if its hurting me. So I guess I don't have long before what. I grab it, and watch it chew itself away. Until what?I pass on? go to hell and become like him? vanish? forget? Well, whatever this does when it reaches my heart, it can't be good.So I just have to kill him before then what do I do?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wKwRyzMQ13Q-He tries to stand, but in his injured state I'm too fast for him. I kick him in the shoulder, using his own weight against him as he hits the wet ground with a thud. He tries to get up again, and I throw myself on him, stabbing my blade deep into his gut. Before he can react I have stabbed it back in two more times, and keep adding more cuts to the ever expanding pool of crimson forming on his white chest. He tries to grab me, and shock me, pulling at me. But it just makes me madder, and I stab his stomach faster and harder, nearly berserk with barely contained rage and fear as the chain hanging from my chest rapidly shrinks as it devours itself!I keep working at a feverish pace to kill it, and somewhere down the line I realize I broke my nodachi into his chest. But he's still breathing!. What do I do? try to beat him to death with my bare hands rip his head off with my hands and teeth Grab the blade, and keep stabbing strangle him write in

The oni isn't laughing any more, he isn't screaming or shrieking or even insulting me and boasting I'll be his meal. He's just gurgling weakly as he chokes on his own blood and shredded organs. But I see none of my comrades yet, I have to kill him. and I don't have time to wait for him to bleed out. Tossing away the useless hilt, I scurry up to his throat, jamming my hands into the wound as I try to rip his head off like a wild animal. My fingers slip onto his flesh and fat, but it barely begins to tear, and the chain is wearing away fast enough as is. I stare into his single smug eye as he begins to laugh at me. How dare he laugh at me!? he has no RIGHT!I dig my nails into his flesh, and try harder, screaming with effort as he keeps laughing, blood filling his mask and mouth as I struggle harder and harder."It's....useless" He coughs, tapping my head "You're doomed already, fool"Something in me snaps, and like an animal I bite into his neck, white stuff spraying from my mouth as I wildly bite and snap at him, swallowing a few piece of meat as I bite into the tougher bits holding his head in place.I need to get the gods and my comrades a gift to show I succeeded. But all this white slime is getting in the way and making it difficult.And then, with the wet sound of ripping leather, I bite through the last stubborn piece of him and pull his head from his body. I try to laugh and grab it, but the white stuff is pouring out of everything. My mouth, my eyes, my nose. It flies up and splatters over my face, I can feel myself fading away. One half of my feels cold, the rest feels like I just woke up from a wonderful dream next to the fire.I laugh, happy to have avenged my friends and myself. I laugh,happy to be free of the dishonor that stained me. I laugh, happy to finally be free of life. I laugh, happy to have walked my own path till the end.I laugh, without a single regret in my short life. I have not experienced so many things a woman my age would.I am still a maiden, but I have experienced more, and love more than them.I laugh, and laugh and laugh, choking on whatever it is.Until I hear a voice.Saigo sama's"Kimi, do not gloat yet, follow my voice or you shall forever be lost to the darkness, that is the last orders I give unto you, follow my voice! escape the abyss Kimi, for we are lost to it, but you can still free yourself from the hunger! Fight for us! FIGHT! you are the last of us! Find a new life, do not give into the hollowness, do not let it take your heart!""Shaaaago shaambaaa" I groan through the goo, as I stand, holding my hand out, trying to find my lord "Wuuurr arrrruhuuuu""Follow my voice! do not stray! Walk! Escape the devil's grasp, do not give in like a dog! SURVIVE AS YOU DID IN SHIROYAMA, SURVIVE, and carry on the legacy of our kind""Saigo" I groan, as everything falls away -cont

She tilted her head, barely opening her mouth as he stared at her like she was going to lunge at him.She groaned, like she was trying to wail but had no strength for it.He just jammed the ticket into her hand and pushed her away"tch freak" He snorted as his friend turn to him"You okay? You look like you just saw a hollow" the man chuckles as the first watches the girl walk away"Oh she's hollow alright, nothing in her head' He laughs, turning around.

"Oh" I say, cold air waking me up as my body suddenly feels sore again, sighing as I open my eyes seeing my breath curl out of my lips like smoke "So that's what happened then?"I clutch my forehead, frowning deeply as I stare at the stream in front of me, watching my reflection. My purple eyes glint in the moonlight as I breath slowly, trying to absorb all I just found out.I avenged my comrades, and myself. I couldn't find that hollow, because I killed it after it killed me. didn't know I was that tough back then. So I ran from my family to die where my comrades were buried. and it followed me. I fought it, and somehow cut it with a normal blade until it broke off in it. And even it didn't know how I cut it....maybe its like with Aizen and the quincy, and I just..but could I do that back then. So..I don't know about that, but I was stubborn enough to kill itBut my untaught, naive and ignorant self, I used my own chain of fate to trip it, setting it up for the finale blow. Breaking the chain, and damning myself due to my incredibly deep hatred and fear of not being able to fulfill my vengeance.And In my desperation, I ate parts of it trying to take its head off in a terrified, rage filled frenzy. Which if I know how hollows works, means that I've become that....the hollow has become are part of me, which means that...which means that.WHICH means that.I stare at my stomach, saigo's voice ringing in my head as I touch my stomach, feeling sick as a chill falling down my spine, freezing me in place as I realize that all my comrades, and...several others areare...I retch, covering my mouth as I stare at my reflection. And for a split second, I see myself with four horns, black eyes and a wicked fox like grin .I step back, reaching for my zanpakuto as"Sis? are you down there? are you awake? I can sense you you know, what are you doing out so later' Aya huffs "Come on, lets get you back home already, its freezing out here"I turn and sigh in relief as I see my little bird, and scoop her up, holding her into a hug without a word, enjoying her body heat as she gasps in surprise"Aww, I'm happy to see you to sis" She says hugging me back as I hold her to my chest "sorry if I got a little jealous earlier but...si..sis?! Kimi let go! you're smothering me!I pass out, falling on top of herAnd we'll end hereI've archivedand will answer questions
>>1322537Oh baby, this sounds like the set up to Bankai.You should run this quest more often for a bit HM, at least until there isn't MASSIVE PLOT UPHEAVAL.
>>1322537Fun session, can't wait to see what comes next as far as our abilities now that we know what happened.
>>1322537Thanks for running HMThe dice sure saw fit to have Kimi's go out in a blaze of vengeful glory
>>1322537Was she reaching for the sword to kill herself or attack her reflection!? D:
>>1322537Great thread as always HM, thanks for running. So, turns out Kimi was a hyper-badass even before she died, who would have thought? And it turns out she carries the souls of her comrades with her, through the Hollow she ate... I can see the possibility of reconciliation with herself there, as well as Alucard-esk shenanigans during her Bankai. Also Aya is a cute, but we knew that already.
>>1322555Aya, the eternal light of optimism and joy >>1322551They do like to do stuff like that
>>1322559On a unrelated note to this quest Someone needs to knit May some tiny horn cozies so she doesn't hurt a certain world tree in her sleep with those extra horns she grew >Or tiny sleeping caps with little pom poms them

>>1322604Ok, now we have to go find Anansi next time we're at the Lions Den.

Well then, Kimi's dice sure have a flare for the dramatic, don't they?I am still working on my little writing project, and I am at least a little glad I procrastinated somewhat since much of today's installment may prove pertinent.As for Kimi being and Onryo, that is interesting. I guess figuratively speaking an Onryo would be bound to something from their life or the object of their vengeance or maybe the land itself. The Bleachverse "chain of fate" manifesting as a literal interpretation of that seems like a natural choice I suppose. Would explain why some earthbound spirits don't go hollow, at least not right away. They have some strong attachment that arrests the process. Kimi broke hers though, interesting.Thanks for running, HM>>1322544One step at a time, anon, this was just the first step on the road to Kimi even understanding what she is. No doubt a step in the right direction, but Kimi hasn't even mastered her Shikai yet--we don't even fully understand it's limits and abilities.Kimi is shaping up to be unconventional, so as far as releases go I think they need sufficient build up and gravitas to be convincing and satisfying.That's right: releases, plural. Not saying we are going to copy SSQ, but some alternate extra release state would not surprise me. Kimi does have 2 spirits in her Zanpakuto afterall. Alternate Shikai? Something else entirely? Time will tell.
>>1322688>May gets her revenge on Earth day by planting Yvette in the garden instead of a sapling
>>1322707Oh, well I can't wait to see it, wonder what its going to be like.And kimi's main attachment was what she saw as her duty to avenge her comrades the only way she could since she couldn't really revolt>>1322709>4 hours of may wrestling her into the ground> she just walks out
>>1322725No one ever accused May of being a smart dragon
>>1322707Also, interesting ideas there
>>1322742I mean, you aren't wrong
