I ask tiredly, trying to tie my hair into its usual ponytail as Ginrei looks at me with his usual, hard to read expression."Oh, forgive me, I wasn't clear enough then" the old man says calmly as a servant rushes behind him, trying to clean up the deck "or perhaps you weren't here enough to understand, I said you could take the day off"I tilt my head, still struggling to tie my ribbon. Lord Kuchiki sighs, and I swear for a moment his wrinkled face lights up with a smile."Hmm, from the look on your face I can see you're still quite confused" He says softly, closing the door to my room, with a light chuckle "What I'm telling you is you don't have to show up at the barracks today, You can do whatever you want with this day...so long as it isn't unlawful or otherwise reputation ruining""Why?" I ask, my lips curling into a frown "Did I get in trouble for something or?""Ever dutiful as always I see" He says, shaking his head as I finally manage to tie my ribbon tightly enough "and no, unless there's something you're hiding from me""Oh...well nothing important" I say calmly, scratching the scar along my cheek"A bottle of sake under my dresser, and all the paintings my younger sister made for me, but anything serious? no of course I'm not Lord Kuchiki""Then you aren't in any sort of trouble" He says, as I stand up and stretch a few aches out of my back"So why are you telling me not to show up at the barracks, then?" I ask, yawning half way through my sentence "Because that sounds like the thing someone does when thinking up a punishment, to me at least""I just thought you needed a day of rest" He says, gripping the hilt of his zanpakuto "Even the hardest workers need to put their tools down eventually"I frown a bit deeper, walking over to the fresh Shihakushō I had left out last night on the dresser, so I didn't have to gather it when I woke up."I don't like it when someone calls a blade a tool" I sigh, still waking up "Especially mine...so why do you think I need rest, Mi'lord? Its not like I'm worn out or anything""You do good work, Kemuri" Ginrei says as I turn back around to look at him "that was a particularity stubborn soul you guided to this next life, and I'm not commanding you to take this day off to do what you will, I am simply allowing you to, if you wish"What do I say Well...thank you, Captain Kuchiki Is this about that weird thing I found?...are you sure this isn't a punishment good, mind if I walk to the barracks with you? Oh, well see you tomorrow then, I have plans to make But I can't really say no if you want me to take a day off can I? Eh? ginrei you feelin alright?

"Well" I say pausing for a second, should I actually take the day of? I mean it just feels a little odd "Thank you Captain Kuchiki""You don't sound very enthusiastic" He says flatly as he walks to leave my somewhat small room "Well, I can't really say no if you want me to take the day off can I?" I say shrugging as he slides the door open and looks back at me"You could always say no" He says flatly as I tilt my head and pause"Eh, you know better than I do, I'm not the sort to question orders" I say shrugging "besides it'd be a bit of a waste to give this up, wouldn't it?""You really do sound like a dog told to wait for its master" He chuckles "and remember, I do expect you at the barracks tomorrow, so don't drink yourself into a stupor or anything like that "What do I do?

I stare out the open door, the light of dawn drifting along into my bedroom with a few stray cherry blossoms. Closing the door to keep away prying eyes, I start to undress, tossing the clothes I fell asleep in away. Now I just need to figure out what I want to do with myself today.Don't really feeling like sitting around doing nothing. Since as tempting as it is to just laze around and nap, I can get more done if I put my mind to it.But then again, there's really no reason to worry about getting anything done. I mean it is a day off, so like Ginrei said I should probably rest a bit. Sharpen myself up a little, so I can be ready tomorrow, and for the next fight I get in. Honestly, I'm still feeling a little on edge from my last mission. It feels like I got lucky there...somehow. I went in expecting a fight but.I pause, nearly finishing tying my cobalt blue sash around my waist as I get lost in my thoughts.That hollow just vanishing, along with that weird presence...it just all felt so...off. And then there's how Ginrei reacted when I told him about it. I've never seen him like that before, I don't get why he was so upset about it but its...I don't know all of it put together just feels pretty weird"Bah" I groan, tearing myself away from my thoughts I shouldn't worry about it, or I'm going to end up wasting this free time. Besides, I can always try and figure out what was going on with that later.But right now, I don't have to worry about it at all.I walk over to the door leading out, grabbing my zanpakuto as I head out, as well as the box of sword care supplies I keep next to it. Well no reason to break off my usual routine. Though I'm a little hungry...eh I can find something to eat after my daily practice. I need to clean up my technique, since Tora showed me a few weaknesses in a couple of movements.contsorry I'm taking so long
>>867355Which I really need to thank her about later. I'm not used to dueling someone with that much reach, after all.I begin to hum a tune, walking into the kuchiki' gardens, past a servant girl scrubbing the boards I walk on.With my supplies in one hand, and my blade in the other I wander into the garden, to my usual meditation and training spot. Passing a sign with the words "Do not cut the bamboo" scrawled angrily, I find my favourite spot in the estate.the peaceful little stream, the small bridge and of course the bunches of bamboo surrounding it like a thick wall, pieces of them strewn about beneath my feet.I begin to set up silently, setting my zanpakuto reverently down on a soft red cloth. Hmm, after I'm done training, I should spend sometime with a friend, not sure who but...I'm sure when I get my blood flowing I'll figure out who I'd like to spend the day with.it doesn't take me too long to clean and care for my blood scented blade, bringing back its shine and making sure its point is as sharp as it can be. But I do go through the ritual two more times, to make sure I've done it right.Looking at my reflection, I twist the blade around and stare down the edge."Flawless" I Say happily as I stand up, swinging it around, testing it outNice sound, doesn't drag as usual. All in all, the best blade I've ever held.the blade shakes, and I can positively taste Kotei's excitement as I enter as high stance, holding the blade upside down. Closing my eyes, I try to imagine the move's Tora made. They were all over head, trying to take advantage of her reach to smash me down. A slicing motion...a stab. A blunt smack to avoid being impaled, Meet the blade if she tries to make a straight cut. Get under her range as quickly as I can. If I stay away from her I'm at a disadvantage. But she's dangerous with it. She controls the battle. So I have to bait her into letting me open up a chance to get in close before she can counter or retreat.One step, get under the blade. Swap hands, swing up, severing the haft from the steel head. two steps to the side, avoiding the retaliatory swing. Swing, if she tries to parry, cut the haft down the center to her first hand. Finishing blow.I open my eyes, and see my blade inches away from a recently grown shoot of bambooI smile.I didn't cut any down this time.Turning my back to it, I look towards the river, setting my unsheathed nodachi on my lap, as I close my eyes and reach into it, trying to find my way inside of it-I smell the thick scent of blood, and feel drool drip down on my headroll 1d20+mobility

13+4= 17= success-I duck forward, rolling as I feel hands trying to grab my sides. I stand up, and see Kotei slumped over, her arms wrapped around where I was a second ago. She looks up at me, grinning madly the scared half of her face smiling even wider as her human eye glimmers with madness.She licks her teeth as she stands back up, and faces me."The mad woman's moves, as slow as the blood, of a man long since dead" I say calmly as she pouts, licking her lips again an gnashing her teeth"Coooome on, I just want a little taste, wifey" She cackles as I hear bloody's thunderous footsteps"Eh, you're gonna let us tear you up this time?" he asks warmly, smacking my shoulder, leaning over me as Kotei swaggers up to me, her arms hanging as she pants, her hot breath washing over my face "I've been dying to fight with you again, my empress""Hands off.. if anyone gets to rip her to pieces its me, you've been feeding me so much trash" she whines, her demonic eye glowing brightly "Come on, just one bite""Away" Bloody says, grabbing her head as she tries to leap and bite into my neck "She isn't for eating""She's mine!" Kotei growls, kicking and struggling, before she melts into blood and reforms, glaring furiously at her other half"Right" I say angrily "Look I have more time than I usually do...but I don't really want to spend all day pushing Kotei away from me"I pause as she tries to look innocent"I cam here to see if you two would have something to teach me" I say happily as both of them smile "that doesn't involve what my organs look like""Oh" Bloody says calmly "Well, you know the price, nothing is ever free sadly, we need to test you, my empress""Yeah, and if you get shredded" Kotei says excitedly, leaning close to me, trying to lick me as I push her away "Well, that's just the place of a wife, isn't it?"What do I do? insult kotei with poetry continue my training with her 1d100 train with bloody 1d100 Go along with their games, and see what they want me to do Challenge both of them at once 1d100 Delve into my memories have tea with bloody.Follow kotei to the darker parts of this inner world change my mind and leave, before kotei can be weirder write in

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wKwRyzMQ13Q-"of course" I say calmly, crossing my arms as Kotei stalks around me, looking for a chance to try and sink her teeth into me or cut me up, like she always does "I know how this goes, you've been pretty clear about it, trial through fire sometimes, other times I just need to figure some riddle out, But its mostly""us trying to take you apart" Bloody says calmly, smiling and looking much more human than Kotei's half snarl and half mad smirk "Forcing you to fight until your breath turns ragged and weak. But if you grow tired of such practice, I can just test the abilities I gave you last time""No, its fine" I say calmly, turning to face him "Besides its fun fighting with you two and its not like I'm scared of myself!?"I gasp as Kotei tackles me, throwing me down the hill into the graveyard of my fallen comrades.She cackles happily, forcing me to the ground, pinning my hand as she licks her lips and rips a spear out from the grave by my head.I grit my teeth, and kick her off.She jumps back, and holds her hand out.PAIN!, burning stabbing pain! I yell, grabbing my arm as blood rips out of it, staining the white kimono I'm wearing red.And that moment where I close my eyes, trying to fight through the pain is all she needs.New pain fires through me, I open my eyes, feeling blood drip down my cheek as kotei stands in front of me.I smack her with my bleeding arm, Kneeing her in the gut to get her away.She pauses to lick the blood I've smeared on her cheek"treat treat treat treat treat" She sings, lowering herself as she grips her spear tighter "GIVE ME MOOORE!" She charges me, raising her weapon up midway through. I step away, and she turns to look at me, as I punch her in the face. One of her fangs breaks as she stumbles back, clutching her mouthShe hollers and tosses the spear away, picking up an actual Naginata, as I finally get her away long enough to draw my blade.My arm aches and burns, from ...whatever she just did to me"Does it hurt?' She asks, entering a stance like Tora's, a semi defensive but still agile one "Cause I can kiss it, and make it hurt even moooooore!

"What" I ask, trying to slow my breathing to calm myself down, don't need to make anymore mistakes against her, I can't let my guard down "Did you just do to me?"I look at me arm, feeling the wounds my own blood left me as it burst out of my veins like a sudden stab of a knife...all up and down my arm at once."Why would I tell you?" Kotei asks, tilting her head as she frowns "Come on, you need to figure it out yourself? Come on, keep putting up a good enough fight and I may tell you something, but you have to earn it, show me your love!"She rushes me, switching to a stance that fits her much better, a loose and wild one. Her foreign armor glints in the blood red setting sun as begins to raise her tatter Naginata into the air to strike me, the soiled tassel flowing behind it. Hmm, well that's an idea"But my emperor" I say pouting like one of "those" girls 'it was such an amazing trick, can't you show me it again, It felt....really good"She grins, and moves one hand away from her weapon, closing her human eye as she giggles happily"Well if you" She says, swinging down at me.Stepping forward, I keep my eyes on the blade falling on me, tossing my empty blade into my other hand, I step to the side and swing up.She roars, stumbling back as I nearly cut through her weapon entirely.She swings again, wasting no time to close the distance.I step twice to the side quick, and barely avoid her strike.She grins and reaches out to me. I cut her palm open as she abandons her weapon."Ah" She moans looking at the wound, like it's a beautiful gift, watching it knit itself closes "Ahhh.."She closes her human eye for a moment, and glares at me hungrily with the demonic side of her face."I'm gonna drain you dry" She says pointing at meroll 1d20+will

I grit my teeth and focus as hard as I can, holding my blade in a guard in front of me as Kotei smiles, liking the blood I splattered on her face almost lovingly, twitching as she does."Don't worry, I'll only cut you into two pieces...three pieces when you fall" She says, smiling, lifting up her finger.I take a deep breath, and sigh. and another one. This is my body, she might be a part of my sword, but she isn't me. She isn't my master or...the husband she's deluded herself into believing she is. I am the wielder of the blade, not her, as much as she'd like it to be that way.I hold her leash, and she doesn't hold mine.I huff, smoke curling over my teeth and turning black as the pain begins to ease as I stand up tall. Another breath, more smoke flows out of me, as begin to push her smother power off of me, feeling her pressure lift off my back as I throw it off and get her the hell away from my blood.the blood crawling over my face drips down as the needles she was making in my blood soften and melt away.I grin as she looks at me in sad confusion"Eh?" She says "You're supposed to be on your knees...screaming, my love. are you playing hard to get or something? I own you!"I glare at her, and she blinks and cackles as her arm begins to bleed and tear."Ah" She says happily "That feels nice, do you want some to wife? don't ya know I'm the one who's supposed to do this...silly empress"She roars, her fangs sharpening as she runs at me, ripping an old axe from the ground "I'LL MAKE YOU HEEL AND BEG FOR AN END THAT'LL NEVER COME!"

I focus on what's under her skin, the blood she so craves and hungers I Squint, my fingers burning as the world slows. My heart thumping in my chest like a drum, as my expressions remains cold and detached.the sun falls behind the trees, the smoking grass rising over my feet, curling around my legs as the blood red leaves drift in the darken sky. Kotei's face becomes hidden in shadow, a cold wind flowing over me.As a splatter of warm covers my face, as Kotei laughs, I can't tell if she's in pain or actually happy for me. I look up at her, her arms are a tattered mess of bloody meat and metal.Stepping to the side, she hits the ground, landing it as she swings her axe down. She turns to me, licking her lips"Stop teasing me" she giggles, her head turning around with a sickening crack "Come on, I want more! Empress, please, I'm your emperor, be a good wife and give me more of your love"She tries to raise her axe, but her arms drag, drooping. She growls, and wiggles her body.

I ask kindly as she tries to lift her hands to pull me down and tear my throat out, her fingers twitching and dragging over the ground by the strands of blood dripping out of her armor, like puppet strands"Since the cat is kind of out of the bag" I say sweetly as I grip her face tightly "Right? you aren't going to play around and try to get more blood out of me....right?""Well, a part of me and a part of you, in you in me" She cackles flowing behind me and reforming in an instant "Blood of course is the key, our looooove. Listen here, my dear wife. You need a bit of training"I push her away as she tries to run her hands down my body and grope me."You know how to control the blood you take from trash and scum" She says struggling against my hand, not putting anywhere near her true force into it "Heathens aren't very fun to play with ya know, fun to cut up and dice, but...not much else, ya know, I looove playing with you""So what you're saying is" I say slowly as she tries to bite my hand so I move it over her face "I need to get my blood into them and...I can rip them apart like I did to your arms""But how do you control your blood" She asks licking her lips as she flows back behind me "Hooow do you do that, my love, my...empress"I think for a moment, walking away from her as she walks behind me. Well, the only time I can control blood, well before I ruined her arms is when I cut them with my zanpakuto"CORRECT" She snarls "Now lets practice ~!"I turn and see her lifting up a broken blade, her arms lifted up by strings of bloodroll 1d20+agility and learn how to do itorflee out of my zanpakuto and do it another day

>>868188In this case it's mostly you and caught up who's a rabid yurifag that will try to get the Mc into bed with anything that has tits. >>868195If you're implying bankai, you are a moron, we aren't even seated officer level yet.
>>868203Who hurt you anon? Was it Sleepy?
>>868203>If you're implying bankaiOf course not now, getting that this soon would be almost as stupid and Mary Sue-ish as getting it within three days of finding out what Bankai even is. We're nowhere near Bankai, but making nice with the unstable half of our weapon is important, and will most certainly help us out in the future.
>>868195Bah.Liking us has nothing to do with it zanpakuto aren't partners, they're extensions of yourself.I'm fine with tanking whatever and cowing her via "know your place" stuff.We have husbandos to husbando over that wouldn't be glorified masturbation with an imaginary partner.
>>868219No, it was you, and other like you who torpedo a quest just to fuck a girl. >>868226Given how many times Ichigo had to "make nice" with the multitudes of spirits in him I doubt it'll do anything lasting.
>>868235>I'm fine with tanking whatever and cowing her via "know your place" stuff.But that's not what's going to happen, at least as far as I can guess. HM said "if you passwe're heading to happy friend times" and I think that means that our relationship with Kotei is about to change for the better, if only a bit.
>>868219Not every MC that's female needs to be or should be a lesbian.
>>868241Hah, OK. I'm in this more for the action and fights, but whatever.
>>868244The problem is her fundamental nature is to cause us pain and suffering. Just like it was True Zangetsu's to always and ever contest Ichigo's control. Happy fun times are never going to happen, at best we'd get grudging respect. >>868252Then act like it instead of going "mah waifu" on someone who obviously means us ill.
"Bloody?" I ask calmly as I sit down, facing Kotei as her grins grows even wider, as she realizes I'm actually going to let her have her way for once "Is she lying?""Do you think she can?" He asks, his mane of blood red hair flowing behind him like smoke "The only problem is unlike me, she only cares about cutting you up""Not true" She says, taking the blade they live in from my hand "I care about her blood, the fear in her eyes, the cries of paaaain she makes...like sweet music"I stare up at her, remaining calm as she walks up to me, and places the edge of her blade on my shoulder."I won't scream" I say smugly "You can't make me scream, I'm going to endure this, and learn that little trick of yours""Oh, well that's good, I wouldn't love you if you were a fragile little flower" She says, breathing heavily "You will take what I give you, or I'll turn you to mince, my empress""Pah, take your best shot" I say, crossing my legs, and slapping my hands on my knees "it won't change a thing, I won't make a noise""Oh you will, but don't worry" Kotei says raising the blade over my head "I won't cut up you're pretty face anymore""I don't" I gasp, feeling the kiss of the blade, just below my neck-17+6= 23= successhttps://youtu.be/kavev5cLs8k-I grip my knees, and huff, the pain flowing through me as Kotei runs the cut through. I bite my tongue, as she begins to strike me, again and again, like she's holding a whip instead of a blade. I hear Bloody gasp, but I don't move, I just hold my head out as her laughter turns into frustrated growls.And she stops playing around, and puts actual strength into her blows, trying to make me make any kind of noise.I look up at her, seeing her look panicky as she raises her blade up again. I smirk, and she smiles as her demonic face twists in hate and frustration.She swings down again, cutting deep into my shoulder.She presses it down with her foot and I stare her in the eyes, still smiling as I bite into my tongue.Ripping the blade out of my shoulder as blood drips down my face in steady streams."WHY AREN'T YOU CRYING!?" She roars, sniffling as she swings down into my other arm "Coooome on make noise! it doesn't feel right without any noise, come on react! YELL, SCREAM, Laugh...anything, it feels like I"m cutting dead meat if you don't do anything, just make one little noise for your emperor...anything....please?"I huff and she smiles, and then I hold my hand out"Give me our sword back kotei" I say sweetly She frowns and pulls it away."Can I have a taste first?" She asks holding the blade out to me "just a little taste? a mouthful of blood""A taste" I say holding my hand outShe grabs it"No" I command as I hold a finger outShe glares at me and sticks her tongue out, opening her mouth.I press my thumb on my finger, letting a single drop of blood drip onto her tongue.She opens her human eye, looking at me expectingly.I raise the blood soaked blade and shake my headcont
>>868250I am actually anti /u/. Its getting kinda silly in /qst/ with all this lesbian action. That being said, I don't really care if it does go /u/ either.
>>868254You are misinterpreting "let's see what happens" for waifu faggotry. Anyway, I'll stop derailing now. Sorry HM.
"More" She growlsI glare at her, she stands up, and tries to stare me down. She backs away as I step towards her."You asked for a taste, not a drink, now" I say raising my blade "Let me test this out, like you said you would""Kahhhh" She sighs "Fine, I'll get more from you later, just...don't be gentle"I swing into her shoulder, cleaver her armor through to the crucifix"Ahhh, you really do know how to use me huh" She cackles, licking her lips as Bloody groans"Can you visit more often? I don't like being alone with her" Bloody grumbles as I rip the blade out of her"I'll try bloody" I say flatly as she holds her arms out still smiling "I can only imagine what that'd be like""Bah, heathen" Kotei giggles "You want to rip her up as much as I dooo!"I fling my arm, watching her kin ripple and tear before she gets dragged off into the mist of smoke by the blood ripping out of her, still looking as excited as ever. "Well, not as much" He says calmly "I just like fighting you, my empress""I love tasting yoou" I hear kotei giggle "And I call that the Emperor's touch!""Kotei's touch" I grumble "of course"*Emperor/Kotei's touch ability gained*"Well bloody" I say bowing as the oni does the same "Enjoy your tea, I'll be going now""See you around, empress" He says smiling a toothy grin-I open my eyes, rubbing my shoulder, feeling blood for a moment as I stand up, and look around.Still alone, and as much as it still aches, I don't have a cut in me.Well, I'm starving now, and could use a drink...But I really need to talk to someone who isn't a bag of crazyWho do I look for? Aya Byakuya Sekiryu  Tosen Tora William Yoruichi Yasu Aizen Shunsui  Food and sake write in
>>868328> Yoruichi> Food and sake
>>868328> Aizen> Food and sakeI mainly want to drive him moer insane via Kimi, Because we all know that's going to happen eventually.
>>868328>Aizen>Food and sakeThe 5ths barracks sound like a good start, and if we bump into sis so much the better.
>>868359Or we could befriend the shit out of him, make a solid attempt at helping him be less of a cunt, and prep for Old Man Genocide to go off his rocker.Because given his age Alzheimer's Yamamoto is a real possibility.
Anyone want to be a tie breaker
>>868378>Because given his age Alzheimer's Yamamoto is a real possibility.Oh holy fuck, that's terrifying. The guy with the sword that burns existence going "Fuck all of you, the Soul King looks weird and I'mma kill it!" would be insane.
>>868367Seconding. I kinda wana husband aizen. Go where no quest (I've read) has gone before. Though we probably would get shanked.

"Hmm" I rub my chin, trying to decide who I want to talk to right now "Well Aya's always a treat, besides its not like I need to actually go looking for her unlike saaay""me?" Yoruichi says as she appears behind me, smirking "Hey Kimi""Hey Pedo" I say teasingly , smirking as I begin to head out of the Kuchiki's estate garden "What's wrong can't find Byakuya?""No...no" She says shaking her head, resting her arms her neck as she walks beside me "I just heard you left your room looking a little frustrated, so I came looking to make sure you weren't acting the part of the seducing Onee-san""Riiiiight" I chuckle "trying to weed out competition eh?""If I was I wouldn't worry about you, you don't have as much" She says, pushing her chest out, with her arms around it to make it look even bigger than usual "Womanly charm as I do""Well, I don't go flaunting mine around" I huff "Besides I'm not exactly a womanly type""Really?" She says, pretending to look shocked "I couldn't tell""Yeah yeah, keep laughing cat" I say happily as we walk down the street together "Also don't you have work to do?""Well, I do" She says looking away from me "Buuut Suì-Fēng was feeling helpful so""You used your" I say smacking her chest with the back of my hand " "womanly charms" to trick her into doing your work for you""No" She says crossing her arms "She was just feeling a little helpeful is all""Oh yes I'll go to dinner with you, I swear, I know how you worship the ground I" I say imitating Yoruichi's voice"Kimi, you do know I what I could do to you right" She says grinding her knuckle into my forehead"Oh, touched a nerve I see" I say flatly, wincing as she grinds a bit harder "And do I look like I care""Of course not, if I gave you a scar you'd brag about it" She says warmly "kind of cute that way""I know I'm younger than you but, that doesn't mean I'm in your "range" " I say smirking as I glance over at her watching her blush"Oh you wish" She says, flicking my forehead "I know you're pretty manly yourself, but that doesn't mean you are one""Hey hey, just because you're playing the same team doesn't mean I am" I say calmly as we walk down the street, a few citizen staring at us....or rather yoruichi, since she's still wearing her captain's coat"Oh right, I forgot you're too focused on nabbing your student to look anywhere else' Yoruchi giggles"Hey shut it!" I shout angrily "Seems I struck a nerve now" She giggles "So where are you going""Find Aya" I say calmly "Get something to eat, and some sake to wash it down""Simple pleasures hmm?" She asks"Yep" I say smiling as I nod "Feel free to join us if you wish" She smiles like the cat she is-"Where is she?" I sigh as I walk through the walls around the 5th division barracks"Ah, Kemuri?" a familiar voice calls out "or could I call you kimi? are you lost? Don't tell me they put a woman of your...talents on delivery duty"-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yoCDlOLN9Y8cont
>>868471"Eh?" I say turning around seeing the spectacled face of the 5th's lieutenant "Aizen""Well who else would it be?" He asks softly walking up to me "You know its kind of looked down upon, just waltzing into another division's barracks like this""Its my day off" I yawn, leaning against a closed door "And I wasn't aware of that, thanks, I'll be leaving right now""Oh so you don't have anything to deliver' He chuckles, leaning on the door across from me "So you just decided to visit your sister then? Don't worry she's in good hands, she's just helping one of her seniors with a little job""Damn, when she's going to come back" I ask frowning "Looking for someone to talk to who isn't crazy or a crib snatcher'"Hmm, personal trouble I take it" He says, sadly "Well, she won't be back for awhile, but if you don't mind I can lend my ear""Well I was going to get something to eat and drink while I was at it and' I say as he steps towards me"What, do you think I'll take advantage of you, or become a drunken mess" He chuckles shaking his head 'No...no I remember that last time I saw you drunk...kimi?""....Ah, yes when you introduced me to that sake" I sigh happily "Well if you can keep up I won't complain""FANTASTIC!" He shouts cheerfully "No one ever wants to drink with me, they say I talk too much or I'm just too...unapproachable"What do I say?...... why's that? Well you do talk about some weird stuff sometimes Save it till the booze do you have any friends...outside of your division Oh, and yoruichi is going to be drinking with us Yeah, I know that feeling, cept for me its ah so scary and oh she's a prodigy, can't talk to her Well I'm all ears, lieutenant. Talk awayReally? Most people think you're quite the charmer Well that explains why sis only fantasizes about you Hm, Well I just want to drink with you for the conversation So, why were you so interested in me five years ago Well then lets talk, any hobbies or...stuff like that You're also a freak write in
>>868521>Why's thatfeel free to talk about yourself>Or save it until the booze, which ever
>>868521> why's that?> Oh, and yoruichi is going to be drinking with us> Yeah, I know that feeling, cept for me its ah so scary and oh she's a prodigy, can't talk to her> So, why were you so interested in me five years agoTime to avert the pointless deaths of thousands and who knows how much other stupid/insane bullshit with the power of friendship!
>>868521>Really? Most people think you're quite the charmer> Oh, and yoruichi is going to be drinking with us>Well then lets talk, any hobbies or...stuff like that
>>868532Or confuse the fuck outa aizen, both is good in my book.
>>868521> why's that? Oh, and yoruichi is going to be drinking with us Yeah, I know that feeling, cept for me its ah so scary and oh she's a prodigy, can't talk to her Well then lets talk, any hobbies or...stuff like that>I have come to the conclusion that anyone who's got even some strength is going to be looked on with fear by the more normal shinigami. Comes with the territory I guess.
"Why's that?" I ask glancing over at him as she sighs, stuffing his arms inside of his kimono's sleeves"Well, I think it's because they only see me as their lieutenant" He says smirking as we walk out of his barrack "Someone above them, definitely not someone to sit back and drink sake with, it'd be like an emperor drinking with a pheasant to them, even though I don't see it like that at all, its oh so troublesome, as you can imagine. It just...upsets me a little""oh, well I can understand that, I guess' I say shrugging "I can see that getting old real fast, oh and before I forget, Yoruichi is going to be drinking with us""Oh, the captain" Aizen says happily "see, this is one reason I'm...well for a lack of better word, fascinated by you, no matter who someone is you treat them like anyone else, no restrictions or reservations, its just so refreshing""Well, to be honest I know what you were talking about, that feeling, I know it" I say nodding as Aizen looks down at me curiously "Cept for me its "Ah so scary" or "She's a prodigy, can't talk to her" or some horse shit""Oh, I've heard about it, people put you up onto a pedestal because of your accomplishments and strength, its a real pain isn't it" He sighs, pushing his glasses back up his nose "it'd be much better if everyone just treated...well if people were like you, Kimi""Like me?" I ask glancing over at him"Yes, like I said, you...don't treat anyone differently based on what they are" He says happily as he leans closer to me "it's why I'm so""So?" I ask tilting my head"Well, fascinated, its so rare seeing someone like you, like I said' He says, quickly looking away from me"Eh, it'd get a bit boring like that I think" I say shrugging, walking in silence for a bit "So do you have any hobbies?""Me?" He asks looking confused"huh, no one's ever asked that but...yes I do, reading, researching, birdwatching....I've even gotten an interest in tea making and dipped my fingers into a bit of poetry lately...and you"What do I say? Ooh, poetry? show me some of your work Bird...watching? You know, you're a little creepy aizen Hmm, so you're fascinated in me then? don't say that around my sister, she'd kill me if she heard you say that oh, I thought you liked caligraphy Oh, poetry, training, drinking,uh...I'm trying to get better at gardening and flower arrangement Bah, don't really like teaHm, softie researching is a hobby? Well, maybe you should find someone who likes those things Ah, fascinating, I took you more as a painting type, so, see any ...good birds?Oh me? not much, just average...not so girly things write in
>>868635> Oh, poetry, training, drinking,uh...I'm trying to get better at gardening and flower arrangement> Bird...watching?> Hmm, so you're fascinated in me then? don't say that around my sister, she'd kill me if she heard you say that> oh, I thought you liked caligraphyI think we just found 16 a new best friend.
>>868635>Hm, softie> Oh, poetry, training, drinking,uh...I'm trying to get better at gardening and flower arrangement> Hmm, so you're fascinated in me then? don't say that around my sister, she'd kill me if she heard you say that
>>868635> oh, I thought you liked caligraphy> Oh, poetry, training, drinking,uh...I'm trying to get better at gardening and flower arrangement
>>868635>Poetry, training drinking, flower arranging, gardening>Reading comes with poetry of course, and I suppose you could say history if you count old myths and urban legends...I'd like to see some of your poetry sometime if you don't mind sharing though.
>>868635>oh, I thought you liked caligraphy>Oh, poetry, training, drinking,uh...I'm trying to get better at gardening and flower arrangement>researching is a hobby?

"Oh I thought you liked calligraphy" I say say, crossing my arms and resting them as I walk beside him"Well its more of a skill than a hobby I think" He chuckles, covering his mouth like a noble woman "So you don't have any hobbies""No no" I says, waving my hand as he smiles "I enjoy poetry of course""Oh everyone knows that, people say you recite in the middle of battle" He says leaning closer to me "Don't know why they call you hound, when do things like that, Kimi""Pah, its a bit like howling, and it helps me keep pace" I say happily mimicking some of my moves "Keep up the rythme""Hmm, well whatever works, right' He says relaxing a bit "Anything else""Training" I say counting down on my fingers "Drinking""Anything else?" He chuckles "don't mean to be rude but, those aren't really hobbies""Well, uh" I say a bit bashfully "I've been trying to get better at gardening and flower arrangement""oh?" He says sounding curious again "Well that'd surprise a few people, I'd imagine""Why?" I ask turning towards him as we pause at a crossroads"Oh, the same reason people avoid you or me" He says sadly, hanging his head "Well...not exactly, but its just how you look and the air you give off, Its the same trouble I have sometimes, like we were just talking about""Bah, I knew plenty of Samurai who liked it" I say shaking my head "Do they think flowers are womanly or something? I mean I'm still a lady if they're thinking like..."Aizen giggles and I glare at him"Sorry, sorry" He says holding his arms up "You're just so full of surprises, you know the you..the actual you is so very different from the you people talk about""Well they don't know me" I huff as I start to walk again "So of course its different""Still, its another thing I find fascinating about you" He says softly as he follows after me, picking up his pace to catch up with me"Hmm, ya know you seem pretty fascinated in me, with how often you're saying it" I say chuckling, almost teasingly "Just try and keep quite around my sister, she'd kill me if she heard you say that""Oh?" He says with a smile "I have another admirer then?"What do I say?...hold on, Yoruichi usually pops up by now Maybe two You can't tell, she freaked out when you sent that letter Yeah, puppy love I think Well I mean, she might be older than me for all I know...so Another? is that why you're writing poetry? Don't see what she sees in you Admiring a flower, is not the same, as growing one. I mean, the girl admire's me, so that should tell you her standardsI wouldn't let it happen So, wanna make a bet, I say I'll drink you under the table in...two hoursWhy'd you become a soul reaper anyway? everyone I asked has a different answer write in
>>868806>...hold on, Yoruichi usually pops up by now> Yeah, puppy love I think> Another? is that why you're writing poetry?>Why'd you become a soul reaper anyway? everyone I asked has a different answer

And then HM realized Kimi has never not rolled a 20 at some point during Jinzen
"Yeah, puppy love I think" I say shrugging as we walk past some stalls owned by a few gossiping young ladies, a few grimacing when they see me with Aizen "And Another? is that why you writing poetry?""Young girls like her always have a disappointing first love" He chuckles, before his face turns cold and serious "No Kimi, No. I took up poetry because I thought I was missing something in their letters but...it was all amateur is, they had no rhythm or stanza, No real substance besides a sickly sweet praise trying to win me over, no real romance...honestly I was a little disappointed, I've been thinking of giving classes to see if they improve...but you'd be better at that than me" "Maybe" I say calmly as we walk over a bridge, with water rushing beneath us "Who knows...and I've been wondering something Aizen"He stops and smiles warmly "Oh please, call me Sōsuke""Well Sōsuke" I say leaning over the edge "Why'd you become a soul reaper anyways? Everyone I asked has a different answer""Oh" He says resting next to me "You've been asking about me""No, Just curious in general, some people do it for the heroics, the good the can do, others to test their blades, other's vendettas" I say calmly as I turn and look over at Lieutenant "So why did you, Sōsuke"He pauses for a minute and closes his eyes"its a little hard to explain actually" He says smirking "I suppose I wanted power to be able to change the world I saw, for the better to""Hold on" I say holding up my hand as Aizen looks a little put out " Yoruichi usually pops up by now""You know her that well?"He asks as I hear a familiar laugh behind my neck"Oh no no" She says sitting on the bridge "Don't mind me, continue on with your date, I'm happy to just watch""What do I say Ah, ready to drink thenTHIS ISN'T A DATED...date? I bet you would pervert Ah, you know Sōsuke then? were...were you just hiding under the bridge? Hey Yoruichi, why'd you become a shinigami Hey, I"m playing match maker with you and your fangirl, you aren't allowed to do it with me and my new friend Speak of the devil Tch, worried he'd steal me away Great, everyone's here, lets get hammered Oh, sorry Aizen, continue pleaseWhere were you? I was a little worried Pissing me off, cat write in

>>868936>Hey Yuroichi, I never asked you either.>Why'd you become a soul reaper?
"Ah" I say happily stepping off and away from the railings of the bridge so I can get an early start to my favorite bar "Ready to drink then?""A date?" Aizen says sounding curious and...something else?I pause as I realize what the captain said, and just stand in place, my mouth frozen in a smile as my eye twitches, and Yoruichi just laughs."THIS ISN'T A DATE!" I scream, gripping my Zanpakuto's hilt as I point at her "And I bet you would, you damn pervert!""Oh she's blushing, so you are a maiden after all kimi" She says, leaning close to me as I Stammer and try to think up a response that doesn't involve drawing my blade "Its so cute seeing you out looking for a lover, Aizen right? Lieutenant of the fifth division correct""Indeed I am" He says, looking bemused at what's happening around him "She told me you'd be showing up sooner or later""Oh now I feel like the third wheel" She says, giggling and covering her mouth as I'm pretty sure I hear my knuckles crack "Well you two have""Oh going to defile young lord Kuchiki, eh?" I grunt as she turns back to me "bet you're wishing this was a date so you won't have to worry about me being around all the time, right""Wait what?"Sōsuke says looking confused as Yoruichi steps back up to me"No, I just think you two would make a cute couple" She says narrowing her eyes like a cat on the prowl "Honestly you two get along really well""I get along with pretty much everyone I meet" I growl as I step up to her pressing my chest against hers "And I'm playing match maker for you and your fangirl, you aren't allowed to do it with me and my new friend""OOooooooh" Sōsuke says, no longer sounding confused at all, and in fact sounding quite happy with himself"Getting us drunk and trying to push us together isn't match making kimi" She groans "Its like...a kid's version of it""SAKE TALKS!" I shout, slamming my fist into the wooden railing, shattering part of it "Its the best way to force a relationship, Like an Iron club in an oni's hand""Well, Ladies if you're going to be at this for awhile I could just meet you at the bar if you tell me where it is" Aizen says warmly "I don't mind waiting for awhile""Seems you got a good catch Kemuri" Yoruichi says, smiling like a cat again as she pushes against meWhat do I do laugh, and go drinking with her and aizen continue arguing and joking around with each other Alright, wanna be like this?*get Suì-Fēng* and what if it is a date, why are you still here Yeah, and all you can catch is trout Oh no need for that, we're just teasing each other a bit oh, forgot you were there, sorry friend write in

"Jealous you can only get fish" I say chuckling as she smiles and sighs"No, surprised you went after someone so...mature" She says teasingly as she leans against me again"Not everyone has your tastes, captain" I say pushing her back with my chest as she leans back and away from me "I know, that's why I thought you were after Byakuya" She sneers as she turns and walks away from me "Just surprised you're aiming for some one a little more grown is all""Do I look like a mirror to you" I ask as I begin to catch up to her as Aizen waits for me"You two seem really close" he chuckle "I was worried you'd be at it all day""Well we both can take a joke" I cackle "Isn't that right, Yoruichi""It is a fun way to pass the time, and great way to relax for awhile" She says grinning as we walk together to the bar"So...what's with those jokes about" Sōsuke "Kuchiki""We met in their manor, Kimi had wandered into it" She says closing her eyes and reminiscing from the look of it "I was looking for him, and""He was hiding from you" I say flatly "Sooo, one thing kind of led to another""Yeah" she chuckles"So both of you just instantly went to jokes about that?" Sōsuke asks, rubbing his chinI just laugh"You have a lot to learn about me" I laugh loudly "now come on, lets make ourselves regret ever being born!-What do I do? try to get aizen to recite poetry with me eat lots of pork, and tell stories drink and share the golden leaf bottle 1d20+endurance try and get aizen drunk as piss ask why they became soul reapers Complain about koteiAsk why aizen is so interested in me Ask Yoruichi how being a captain is going "It feels like I'm the odd one out here" just chat and have a good timewrite in

"Ah, thank you master" I say clapping my hands together and bowing as the bar tender sets that special bottle of sake on our table, the strong stuff."Oh no" Aizen says shaking his hand, no "I've seen what that stuff does to people, and its still the morning I have so much work to""Oh come on" I laugh, pouring him a glass "Share at least a glass with me""its the best way to force one" Yoruichi says under her breath as I pour her share, before mine"Well, I can't say no now can I?" Sōsuke says raising his saucer"Yeah" I say as I raise mine "I wouldn't let you anyways""So bold for an unseated officer" He laughs, already turning red faced, I smile and hold out the cup again "Oh no no...ha fine""I just think she likes getting people drunk for laughs" Yoruichi sighs as I drain my saucer and groan, feeling cold air wash against my burning face"Kyaa that burn, this is the good stuff" I cackle as I pour myself another one "and I do, its fun seeing people get drunk ya know""I think I'm at my limit" Aizen sighs "how did you drink an entire bottle of this? Are you trying kill ush?""MY body is a fortress" I laugh, as I pour him another one "a battered and broken sure, but still a fortress""You really are blunt aren't you" Yoruichi giggles as I pour her her second glass "But I will admit, you do always treat me well when we go out""Maybe she's after you" Aizen says teasingly, making both of us pause for a moment and chuckle, before we finish our current sips"No...no, she does this to everyone she knows" Yoruichi says happily"I do indeed" I say with a grin "I think its your fault" She says looking at aizen "you did buy her the first bottle didn't you""Well I wanted to talk to her, and she was being a little" Aizen says, looking a little embarrassed as I laugh"Takes more than booze for that" I laugh as he groans and press his wrist on his forehead"Oh you devil" Yoruichi cackles"I feel like I'm being teamed up and..I don't need anymore" He says weakly, taking another sip as I pour myself another drink"Yesh you do" I say sternly "its the only proper way to drink with friends""To make them shick?" He asks, trying to finish up his latest drink "You have a funny way of treating friends kimi""Well, its a good way to make new ones quick, just ask Tosen" I giggle, sipping my sake as Yoruichi silently finishes hers "So why'd both of you become soul reapers""Kind of just fell into it" She sighs, blushing a bit "Didn't start as one, and I was the head of my family and the Onmitsukidō before I became a captain, guess people just thought I was worthy of the position""And you, Sōsuke?" I ask holding out the bottle as he uneasily takes another sip "I told you, I wanted to change the world" He says calmly, a bit red faced "No matter what I need to do, I will make it a better place""Sounding a little dangerous there" I cacklecont
>>869305"Yeah he is, maybe he should realize some good isn't worth any price" Yoruichi sighs "No reason to go spending what you can't afford""Well its what I believe, and its a manner of speech" He sighs, shaking his head "See everything is...its all..I just want to make it better, you..you don't get it""Oh I get it, I died doing something like that" I Say as he finishes his drink, and sets his saucer upside downHe looks up at me with a weird snake like smile, I frown and smirk."Come on" I bark, grabbing his hand to lift him up "recite some poetry with me""Wh..no no, not in front of strangersh" He slurs barely able to stand already "I haven't read it for anyone yet anyways, I need to work on it"What do I do fine, I'll go first *what do you say* Well then, pretend you're reading it only to me, we're friends right? so it should be easy? right BAH, NEED MORE LIQUOR 1d20+str Eh, fine, lets just sit around eating and talkin then write in
>>869315> fine, I'll go first *what do you say*"The wasp and the cat, so close and yet so far"
>>869315 fine, I'll go first *what do you say*A fire burns slowlySword shines in the moonless nightTwo hands unwind life
>>869315> fine, I'll go first *what do you say*I suck at poetry but I want to choose this option anyway.
>>869315>Fine I'll go firstIn the coolnessof the empty sixth-month sky...the cuckoo’s cry.the tree cut,dawn breaks earlyat my little window(Not mine of course but it came to mind due to characters talking about birds)
"Alright then, fine I'll go first" I say pointing my thumb at myself as I grin happily, and clear my throat as Aizen tries to sit down without falling over himself.Placing my hand over my chest, the bar seems to go silent for a moment, as I tap my foot on the floor trying to find my pace and rhythm. I have two verses in mind right now, that should be enough to give the lieutenant his courage to read his works out.I look at Yoruichi pouring herself another drink, as a group of drunks walks in besides her. I smirk, and cackle deviously. I was gonna share that one for later buuuut...I think it'll be good now."The wasp and the cat" I say, watching her eyes light up and narrow as she swirls her sake around, gripping the bottle like she's going to throw it "So close and yet so far"I Wait for the bottle to fly at my head, but it never comes, in fact she starts clapping, along with a few of the other patrons."I don't really get it" Aizen sighs, pressing his fist over his fallen glasses "Wasp and cat? those aren't really two things you'd expect to be lovers, right""Guess who she's talking about" Yoruichi sighs as Aizen glances at her and smirks"Ah, I see, still trying to " he laughs as I raise my hand for silence"Now for something a little more serious" I say tapping my sandal to a different beat to match up with the rhythm of this rhyme Clearing my throat, I begin "A fire burns slowly, a sword shines in the moonless night, two hands unwind life"Aizen claps, looking a little more sober as he nods and smirks "Wonderful, wonderful....Mind if I share mine now?""One more" I say holding up a finger "Please""Well, can't force an artist off their stage, I suppose" He sighs, watching me intently as I take a few deep breaths and start one last time"In the coolness, of the empty sixth month sky, the cuckoo's cry" I say softly, trying to sound beautiful as the poem itself "the tree's cut, dawn breaks early, at my little window"I bow when I hear the applause, and sit down next to my drink as Aizen Sōsuke takes his wobbling standcontany guess what his poems are going to be about
>>869426I wouldn't want to ruin it with speculation.
>>869426>any guess what his poems are going to be aboutFrom what little I understand about this guy? Becoming stronger, rewriting the natural order, the difference between illusion and reality. And mist, something about mist, like his ridiculous blade.
>>869446Eh, sometimes pondering on esoteric differences is neat.Mist is a cool natural theme to play with if you're playing with forms literally or figuratively, and the odd tendency toward recognition and isolation and all the bizarre fairness that comes with it are all rather fertile ground.He could very well craft something deeply personal and only ever so slightly odd out of it, like in a cool or sympathetic way.Whether he has the capacity or want to, we'll see.But if his poetry is anything like his calligraphy I doubt it. I.E. Precise and devoid of "passion" if not care.
>>869462Bizarre fakeness I meant.
>>869426He clears his throat, holding his hand over his neck as he takes a deep breath. Despite looking drunk, with his face a deep red, and his glasses and hair being a little messed up as he sways in place, he somehow still looks dignified and handsome. Then again I've noticed most of the shinigami I've met have been pretty kind to the eye."A bird lies under, a gilded cage" He says softly, his voice sounding cruel "It knows not of true freedom, and is sadly content, under the distant eyes under it captor"I clap slowly, its a bit sadder than mine but it does have beauty to it "Nice" I say, taking another drink of sake before I finish "Real nice"He smiles, and nods without a word looking a little more confident behind the booze"Do the puppets know, the designs of which they dance?" He says, his voice sounding clearer than before "Would they care how they dance, if they could live anything else?"I clap again, too busy drinking with Yoruichi and eating the now cold pork to compliment him directly"Flowers bloom from sand, the trials it faced, have made it much more beautiful" He says placing his hand on his heart "its white petals drift on the wind, over the lonely mountain covered in mist"He pauses and sighs"No flower grow under it, the mist is all there is, cold and dry, but it is all the mountain has, besides distant glimpses, of white petals dancing on the wind' He says slowly, in a way I know to be how one sounds when they're making it up on the spot."How the fog and mist rolls, through the abandoned town, covered in dew" He continues staggering forward, his passions inflamed "Not a soul to see, or witness a beauty saw by none"What do I do? drink with him and Yoruichi till I have to go home Compliment them and tell him they're beautiful Critique them, not harshly though POETRY DUEL 1d20+spirittry and get everyone else to clap for him ask what they were about Force Yoruichi to try...or attempt to Try and get some of the other drunks to try Tease him, calling him girly. flirt write in
>>869510> drink with him and Yoruichi till I have to go home> Compliment them> Force Yoruichi to try...or attempt toWell that was about as dark as we should have expected.
>>869510>Compliment just a bit>Critique just a bit>See if he's up for hassling Yoruichi into it.I'm thinking peer pressure.

"Wonderful wonderful!" I shout happily, clapping my hands as he stumbles back over to the table "I will admit I wasn't expecting that, those were beautiful! pulled straight from the soul, you really have a talent for it""Oh they're nothing special I think they dragged on to long" He grumbles, sounding once again smashed and drunk as piss "But do you honestly think that""Of course I have an ear for such things, and besides, each poem has its own length, some need to be short and others long to get their point across" I chuckle as I take another drink feeling pretty giggly now"Oh I think I should leave you two alone now, I have work to do, and Feng is already going to be upset with me" Yoruichi yawns as she starts to up "So I hope both of you have a wonderful evening together""Hey hey, don't leave yet" I laugh as I grab her wrist as tightly "You haven't read your poems yet""I'm don't do poems" She says sternly "I don't want to make a fool of myself, I'll do it later, when I'm not busy""Well you did come out here to drink with us" Aizen says with a smirk "Why not just make one quick poem, just amuse us""Yeah Amuse me" I cackle "I Wanna see what you think is art, Yoruichi chaaan"She frowns and her eyes narrow as she smirks like a cat again, as she reaches for the rest of the sake."Young white flower" She says softly grabbing my face, and in my drunken haze I realize what's shes doing "Wilt in sake, needs to be walked home""Sōsuke HELP!" I yelp as she shoves the bottle in my mouth.I try not to drink, but she holds my nose and waits until I run out of breath.I sputter, gasping for air and drinking down sake as my throat and lungs burn."Kimi!" Aizen shouts, patting me on the back as I fall on the table and drunkenly giggle"Sorry kimi" Yoruichi says, ruffling my hair as I lay their, groaning with an aching head and burning stomach"I need ta lie down" I hiccup as I try to stand up and nearly fall, before both of my drinking friends catch me"You need to go home" Yoruichi says guiltily, lifting me up on "Of course she does" Aizen sighs "Don't worry kimi, we'll get you back saftely...where does she live?""Kuchiki's estate" Yoruichi says flatly, as they drag me out, while I groan, the light already burning my eyes.-Ginrei paced back and forth in his office, he had already reported what his faithful hound had told him but still, stress held his heart tightly. Now a man of his power had little too worry about, but this knowledge he had...well what it could mean shook him to his core.the Death Hunters, the Todesjäger. Quincies who had, when they realized their fate and sentence had turned to practicing to hunt Shinigami rather than hollows. A clan of them in fact, who had been, when the quincy were still a threat to the balance of reincarnation, called for war against the soul societythey were insane, even among quincies delusional, believing shinigami stole the souls from hollowscont
>>869628 and consumed them for their own power.Utterly mad men, who refused evidence of their own wanton destruction, blaming their chosen foes to the endAnd if one had survived then...if they could spread that lie further...it'd be troublesome to say the least. if the Quincies returned under that banner. Even if its is nigh impossible.Ginrei thought it was still a disturbing chance. He'd have to find a way to eliminate this lone survivor beforethe old man sighed, hearing his hot blooded second rushing down the hallway.Well, at least he could hope Kimi hadn't gotten too drunk and caught up in celebration todayAnd we'll end hereI've archivedand will answerquestions
>>869634Ah, the plot continues. I for one am very interested to see how well we dodge Quincy arrows, and I am very tired. Great threat as always HM, thanks for running.
>>869634With all her arguing about how battles should be fought up close, did Kimi not have a high opinion of bows and catapults either back in the day? I think archers and siege engineers would be upset to have their skills short-sold.
>>869764And she wouldn't care. She never tried to learn how to fire a bow, and while she didn't dislike archers on principle, she had far more respect for people she could practice her arts on. So yeah, not a high opinion hereSince while she is amazing with a blade even in life, she didn't have the reflexes or body to even attempt to face down arrow volleys with her blade. Probably saw siege weapons as dirty tricksbut either way, her hatred for them would pale in comparison to that of the fire arm and cannon
>>869857Ironically, it was partly the samurai's attitude to firearms that forced them to bend their knees later.Firearms threatened the samurais' power (among other people who disliked the new technology), and they used it being a symbol of foreign influence to limit its manufacture more and more, and with japan being as isolationist as it was it worked pretty well. So while they were great at making guns when they first got them, they originally didn't have good incentives or maintaining it (like the threat of conquest or being left behind economically, stuff commonly found in europe), and had powerful people with incentives not to.And then the US showed up with big gunboats they couldn't fight back against, and they realized how far behind they fell. All because their ancestors got a little prideful and xenophobic. Fuck.
>>869884Poor Kimiif only she was born sooner
>>869764Archery was the original primary skill of a samurai, it wasn't until sometime after the class restrictions on weapons were placed that they REALLY started fetishizing the katana.Although she's obviously from the later years, plenty of samurai, back when there were lords to serve and there were actually lords to serve would probably find the idea of someone neglecting their primary tool for their side arm ridiculous and disgraceful.I feel like their historical roots as primarily archers probably affected their initial outlook on guns much like it did during early adoption in Europe.
>>869884Not quite correct, as it was predominantly the warrior class who could purchase firearms and for a while, most notably under Toyotomi and Nobunaga, they quite happily fielded them. Under the isolationist policies of the Tokugawa all western influence was rejected, including firearms and Christianity, as representative of a potential alternative authority.By the end of the Tokugawa both sides were using locally produced rifles, right down to and including the infamous Shinsengumi.As for the uchigatana, that was partly due to the shift in fighting away from horseback in open fields, requiring a shorter sword. Combined with the same Sakoku policies that caused a shift away from firearms, and there was really one choice.
