BLEACH QUEST XIV.5/XV
>Since when were you under the impression that there was a way off Mr. Kubo’s Wild Ride?

Thread (XII) at Suptg- http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/25667025/

First, let me explain how dice rolls work here on Bleach Quest. I take the best of three, barring any Critical Successes or Critical Failures. If I have not yet asked for dice, and you roll anyway, your roll will count towards the next time I ask for rolls be it for good or ill. After I get three results for a roll, all others are discarded. Normally I take best of 3.

>CRITICAL MASTER I

From now on any and all crits within the first ten rolls, good or bad, are stored to be used on the next roll, exponential affecting it if there’s more than one.

>In the Blood

You’ve awakened your inherent Quincy blood!

>Sixth Sense

Takes the first five rolls when searching for spiritual energy
>Also: Skills:
>{------} - are currently at 89 out of 200 for this Rank of (------)
>Swordsmanship - are at 62 out of 600 for Rank 2 of Swordsmanship. You are now an ametuer swordsman!
>Zanpakuto - are currently at 499 out of 10,000 to reach next rank- can only be improved by training
>Control- You are currently at 50 out of 300 for Rank 1 of Control
>{----} You are currently at 0 out of 500 for Rank 1 of {----}
>Hollow powers- You are currently at 0 out of 1000 for Rank 2. New skills available!
>Sixth Sense - You are currently at 250 out of 1000 for Rank 2 of Sixth Sense
>Quincy- you are currently at 401 out of 1000 for Rank 1.

Skills available to purchase!

Hey Cosgrove, hope things went better for you today bro. Sorry to hear about your situation.

I know you're mostly familiar with the Manga and have based this off of it; but, are you taking anime and vidya specific plots/ characters into consideration?

will we see rukia anytime soon?

This is not the question, BUT
Will we know this in-character?

>>25743880
We have been asking for her non-stop since she left. I'm sure we'll see her eventually. GAR, regular, hypnotized, friendly, or foe... this we do not know.

>Reminder I will answer ONE QUESTION

That has majority consensus
>>
>>25744012
... that's actually a good question. Doesn't spoil much of the plot, but it certainly would make things interesting either way.
>>
>>25744034
HOGUYOKU WHERE R!!
>>
>>25743983
I second this. I liked him from the manga.
>>
>>25744034

Here's the question.

"What is the quickest, safest, and most reliable way to powerlevel our Xp for Hollow, Quincy, Shinigami, and Zanpakuto?"
>>
>>25744073
Really? That seems like a waste, I mean there's a 90% chance that even if Cos says it's possible, people won't go for it.
>>
>>25744080
I can get on board with this
>>
>>25744034
Will we be able to explore other places besides the already defined locales of bleach? I mean, plot is already off the rails, might as well see what else we can fuck with.
>>
>>25744080
Grinding our way through the plot would be my bet and this includes the training arcs
>>
>>25744080
I agree with this question.
>>
>>25744125
I agree with this agreement.

>>25744102

>Hey we've already been stupidly successful with our training and powers, how do we godmode the quest harder and faster so we can sap all the fun out?

>>25744169
What can I say, I like surprises in this quest. If this were more "Oh fuck oh fuck the slightest mistake will fucking KILL US" like Meta Geass, that'd be another issue, but we don't really NEED to know where it is to stay alive.
>>
>>25744080
>>25744102
>>25744116
>>25744125


Refining it, based on those flaws, and the fact that Cos just said "You're getting too close to rules lawyering".


"What is the most efficient method of training available to us to gain Xp for each of our various powersets?"
>>
>>25744201

But that's dumb.

Why would we want to power-level into the place where Bleach started to suck, and get the best way of doing so, when we could just choose to play the game and learn something more interesting?
>>
>>25744034
What's the likelihood of Hitsugaya getting thoroughly and brutally killed?
>>
Dudes can we worry about the lesbian who might be a tad freaked about the fact we just switched places with a doll and left her with some rather unsavory convicts.
>>
>>25744235
Because as the answer is just gonna be training, it's actually wasting the question. Wasting the question might be the best idea to maintain the integrity of the game.
>>
>>25744254
She's a dyke, I'm sure she's seen enough hentai to know what's going on.
>>
>>25744237
I second this and if we have a vote lets let him die the death he should have had.
>>
>>25744254

As far as we know, everybody in the building is trustworthy. If she's worried we can have a quick chat, but it's not a situation worth panicking over.
>>
>>25744288
It really is the closest thing to redeemption that is possible for him
>>
>>25744288
But we'll just be playing into Kubo's hands.
>>
>>25744357
Sometimes Kubo is right
>>
>>25744237
>>25744288
>>25744326
>>25744357
Okay, as someone who never really got very far into Bleach, but is picking it back up because of this quest, what all did he do that makes him so hated?
>>
>>25744286
True but that does seem funner than trying to powerlevel in a quest where we are going to get powerleveled regardless of what we want.

Also are we still going to Ghost Mexico to save Quincy Mom or what?
>>
>>25743983
>Getting Renji out of the friend zone.

Impossible.

Rukia is more likely to hook up with her adopted brother by this point.
>>
>>25744288

Why do you want him dead?

Did he become a cunt after I stopped reading or something?
>>
>>25744400
We're certainly going to try.
>>
>>25744395
He isn't really hated. His main thing he's famous for is A: having crazy plot twists that seem like asspulls but we're really planned all along
And B: not having the balls to stand up to his editor, and letting his series turn to shit.
>>
>>25744411
You say that like her hooking up with Byakuya isn't a serious possibility.
>>
I have a question that I'm not sure has been answered yet: can characters display abilities they have not demonstrated in the manga?

(Like potentially formerly non-powered characters getting superpowers, and/or shinigami unlocking bankai)
>>
>>25744450

He's talking about a character, not Kubo.

>You know, I’m going to get the wrong impression if you keep staring at me like that.

Raising an eyebrow, you smirk at Honsho. “You know, I’m going to get the wrong impression if you keep staring at me like that.”

She lets out a snort. “Yeah, as if Kurosaki. You’re not my type.”

Shaking her head, she looks back at you. “So, I got the basic overview from that Tessai guy. You’re some sort of death god who fights monsters and saves souls. But I guess you didn’t hear that whole line about ‘Ye who fight monsters,’ did you Kurosaki?”

>[ ] Huh, didn’t know you knew Nietzsche.
>[ ] Stuff it, Honsho.
>[ ] I prefer Shakespeare, myself
>[ ] Write in

She stands up and stretches. “Well, I’m getting hungry, Kurosaki. I’m going to go get something to eat. I’m rather unfamiliar with this area, so I don‘t have a problem if you want to come along if you want.”

>[ ] Sure
>[ ] No thanks
>[ ] Write in
>>
>>25744395
I just find him to be a shit character, his personality is 'I'm grumpy because I'm a child and everyone treats me as such' and his fights are all about as asspull-ly as Ichigos, except they almost always don't do anything effective at all
>>
>>25744395
Kubo or Hitsugaya? Hitsugaya is known to be Kubo's least favorite character, but is a fan favorite, so he's forced to give him screen time. The result of Kubo's hatred is that Hitsugaya almost dies every time he appears.
>>
>>25744417
He was tolerable at first, until he started showing up in wildly inappropriate situations all the fucking time because the editors forced Kubo to appease the squealing fangirls. He was NEVER supposed to be a major character, and it kinda shows. He has metric fucktons of screentime, but no real characterization to show for it.
>>
>>25744488
>[ ] I prefer Shakespeare, myself
"There are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in your philosophy"
>>
>>25744288
Yes. Salvation through death. Double death?

>>25744395
The Japanese fanbase loves him (specifically the female readers) He is one of Kubos least favorite characters so every time editorial recommends bringing him back, Kubo does so... then inflicts severe damage to him. Most likely out of spite.

>>25744450
I don't mean Kubo, I mean Hitsugaya.
I kinda lost track of the series not far into Soul Society, so all I really know about him is "Dude's sword is WAY too big for his stature."
>>25744489
So theoretically, Cos could make him cool the same way he's made Orihime more fun? Or is he beyond salvation?
>>25744505
>>25744508
>>25744516
And THIS is why editors have way too much power in the manga industry.

"Nietzsche? I didn't know you were that well read. Rather a bleak view on things to take. Besides, there's a difference between a Faustian bargain and having to deal with an inborn condition."

Then go with her for food.

Rukia is more or less a canon bi-sexual (pictured) and according to the filler, or at least dog mans imagination, seems to maybe have a hankeren' for the forbidden fruits of brotherly love. This mixed with her award winning personality and sense of charm makes her the perfect waifu.

Of course this is Cosgroves show and we already torpedoed the canon relationship Ichigo and Rukia foster, so who knows how things'll be?

Cut that out. they just make suggestions. Kubo is free to listen to them and make more money and have a longer run, or to do things the way he wants and potentially suffer the consequences.

Kinda, but not quite.

I was thinking more like using her to sway Orihime into a 'sharing' mindset using her as the basis instead of us.

I mean, she REALLY likes Orihime. Orihime really likes us. All we have to do is say we're not totally opposed to the idea and that we don't TECHNICALLY have any say over it since the two of us aren't in a relationship.

>>25744711
Ok guys I suggest we sit on this question and see where tonight takes us just to be safe.


Personally I want to know if we have a chance to run into Coyote early before Aizen. He's just a ronry guy looking for people strong enough to be around that he doesn't kill them by accident. If we get to that level and meet him, he would make a pwerful almost guaranteed ally.
>>
>>25744606
Welp, guess we'd better hope he gets to die being useful. Maybe he can take a fatal wound for Renji and the Ikari kid can have all his screentime. We could use a medic. And he seems like a nice guy.

Ahahahaha

That is genius.

Everyone's loyalty missions involve overcoming their personal demons via fighting and a bunch of emotional stuff. Except Honsho's, which is just convincing Orihime to swing both ways.
>>
>>25744840

No really. Think of it like a Venn diagram. There's a portion of women who are into women, who are into men, and are into both.

By teaming up with a lesbian or bisexual woman and agreeing to share, you're destroying that untouchable boundary.

>>25744931

It's honestly bizarre how much time I've thought about the hows and whys of sex when I have little to no interest myself outside a detached 'scientific' curiosity.
>>
So we should make Hanatarou a main character right?
>>
>>25744845
>>25744875
We should get Hanataro to hang out with Mizuiro. The ladies of Soul Society will never be safe after he learns the art of harem-keeping.

>[X] Huh, didn’t know you knew Nietzsche.
>[X] I prefer Shakespeare, myself

“Huh, didn’t know you knew Nietzche.”

You blink at her in surprise before smirking. “There are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in your philosophy. I prefer Shakespeare, myself.”

Honsho raises an eyebrow at you. “Really now. That’s a surprise. Didn’t figure you to be well read, Kurosaki.”

You shake your head. “Have to be. I’ve got to keep my bgrades up if I don’t went our teachers giving me crap over this.”

You wave in the direction of your hair. Honsho looks speculative before shrugging. “To be honest, I never really considered it. I always just thought of you as that dumb brute that my Hiem was being tempted by. But I guess you aren’t dumb at all.”

>[X] Sure

You think about it for a second before nodding your head, a few moments later you‘re back in your body and the mod soul is in his plush. Walking over to tessai, you ask to use the phone. He nods, handing one to you. You dial in your house’s number and wait as it rings.

You hear your father’s voice come on the phone. “Kusosaki residence, how may I help you?”

“Hey, goat chin, I’m going to be eating out, so could you tell Yuzu?”

You hear your father give a grunt of acknowledgement. “Sure. Just don’t be out too late.”

His voice turns teasing. “And don’t do anything I wouldn’t!”

You slam the phone down, irritated. Honsho looks at you curiously.

“Something the matter Kurosaki?”

You shake your head. “Nah, just my old man being a dumbass. You ready?”

Honsho inclines her head, walking towards the door. “So, where do you suggest, Kurosaki?”

>Fast Food
>Restaurant
>Honsho’s choice
>Other

>Type of food place is a write in for options 1 or 2
>>
>>25745110

I think the 'secretly the most terrible murderous badass in SS' twist with her is the reason I'm never going back to Bleach.
>>
>>25745140
Don't let her status as the captain of Medic Squad fool you. Unohana is fucking scary.

Fast Food could be taken as an insult, and a Restaurant could be taken as a Date.

Well they were more than just medics. In fact most of their work was basically being janitors.

>Honsho’s choice

You shrug. “You’re inviting me along, so I suppose whatever you want.”

Honsho raises an eyebrow before shrugging. She puts on her shoes and picks up her bag. “Let’s go then!”

About ten minutes of walking, you see Hnosho pause as she sees a small ramen bar before she walks over to it and sits down. You follow suit.

You both place your orders, and you have a few moments to talk. Honsho is looking over at you, waiting for you to lead the conversation.

You sit there, trying to think of something to say, but you don’t really know much about Honsho.

“So… despite sort of being friends, we apparently don’t really know each other at all, do we?”

You look at her, but she looks slightly uncomfortable as she nods. “No, I don’t think either of us really cared about the other person, to be honest. Why would we? But you consider me a friend?”

You nod your head and she allows a melancholy smile to grace her lips. “That’s the first time in a long time anyone’s ever told me that, you know?”

She looks at you. “Not a lot of people really want to be friends with me. This is the first time someone actually wanted to spend time with me. Many times I end up eating out alone, so I‘ve acquired a taste for ramen.”

She gives you a soft smile. “Thank you, Kurosaki.”

You nod as the ramen is brought out. As you’re eating, you keep an eyes on her. “So, how are you coping. With all of this? Chad’s the same as always. Unphased. Orihime is… complicated.”

Honsho gives you a disappointed look. “Really Kurosaki, how is it complicated. She likes you. She’s kissed you. Most guys, and me, would die for a chance to have a shot at her.”

As she finishes slurping some more Ramen, she points her chopsticks at you.

“And yet her you are, having dinner with a lesbian. So what’s the deal here?”

"What's complicated? Well, there's the fact that she's only bothered to tell me about it during the week my universe turned upside down. There's the fact that wile I don't dislike her, I also had a crush on someone else, which complicates things. I mean, she's sweet and I like her but.... I never really considered her romantically until just recently."

"So I really don't want to hurt her, or anyone honestly, but I don't think I'm capable of doing anything that won't end in disaster right now. Especially since this is sorta uncharted water for me. I'm good at intellectual stuff, and I'm good at fighting. Emotions...." Just kinda trail off and shrug.
>>
>>25746685
I don't want ther to get hurt. In the past week so much craziness has happened it's unreal, that and I've found out that I'm such a persona nongrata that just being in the same city as me endangers her.

How could I possibly think of a relationship with someone knowing how much danger they'd be in, hell even if it was safe what if she wants kids? I mean I don't think I could inflict the danger of going out with me on another person how could I then inflict BEING me on someone else?

"You told me that I better not hurt Orihine...but I know that I already have. She told me that she was falling in love me...and I told her that with everything that was happening to me right now, it would be irresponsible to get involved, but after things calmed down... I would be able to give her a real answer...but now she's trying to develop powers to fight and protect me..."

Huff out of sadness and into mild frustration.

"I've changed her life... and what's worse is I hid something from her that she deserves to know...how can this all have been a single week? How am I still me? How can she be so willing to accept the monster bound and awake inside me, that has threatened to consume soul? I'm the king in my own mind for now...but for how long...you were right about monsters,"

But then I'd hurt Orihime, and she'd be mad at me for hurting Orihime, and I'd just wind up torpedoing two friendships. And now you'd be mad at me for hurting Orihime too, so I'd be torpedoing three friendships, and... Do girls have this much trouble with the whole 'romance' thing?"

And that... kind of scares me. Even if I did date her, I'm not sure if I can match that level of intensity, and it'd just end up hurting her."

This is a really good point. We should mention just how worrying that really is. I mean, it's pushing Shirou levels of distortion and represents an immense level of dependency.

Orihime will become whatever she needs to to be with Ichigo. Ichigo is now aware of this, and the responsibility terrifies him.

>I don’t know what to do
>I’m afraid she’ll get hurt
>Confide

You let out a deep breath. “Can I confide with you?”

Honsho nods her head. “Well, to be honest there’s the fact she only told me when my life got turned upside down. I don’t dislike her, but I had a crush on someone a while ago and while I don’t dislike Orihime, I never considered her romantically.”

You give her a glance as she sits there, chin resting on her hands and eyes closed. “You told me I better not hurt her, but I know that I already have. She told me that she was falling in love me...and I told her that with everything that was happening to me right now, it would be irresponsible to get involved, but after things calmed down... I would be able to give her a real answer...but now she's trying to develop powers to fight and protect me..."

You give of huff of frustration.

"I've changed her life... and what's worse is I hid something from her that she deserves to know...how can this all have been a single week? How am I still me? How can she be so willing to accept the monster bound and awake inside me, that has threatened to consume soul?

"Let's make a deal. We'll be honest about our feelings, and no matter what, we make sure 'Hime is happy with whoever she chooses and chooses her in turn...besides...I'm not so sure how I feel yet.

You trail off and look at her as she sits there. After a few moments she cracks her eye open and looks at you. “Are you done, Kurosaki?”

>>
>>25747652
As you nod she lets out a long suffering sigh. “You’ve never been in love with someone have you?”

She stares at you intensely. “Well, love’s a crazy emotion, Kurosaki. It can make you brave, weak, strong, crazy, and it’s a roller coaster you never can really get off of. When you’re in love, you want to take those risks.”

She stirs around the broth in her soup. “I’m not telling you what to do. I owe you that much. But, for as much as you keep saying ‘you don’t want people to get hurt’ you’re talking bullshit, Kurosaki.”

She glances at you sharply. “I don’t know if it was this crush of yours, or what ,but you’re afraid of people getting to close to you. You keep pushing people-”

She pauses and then shakes her head. “-women, as I don’t see you having a problem with Chad or anyone else male in your merry band, getting close to you. So you push them away and tell them its because you don’t want them hurt. So when they distance themselves from you, you can tell yourself ‘well, I guess things didn’t work out. I was right to push her away.’”

Hnosho shakes her head, her voice rather strained. “But then someone comes along and they don’t listen to that. They won’t give up on you and they want to be there. And it scares you- more than anything. Because your normal guards don’t work. Because you’re afraid of them getting hurt. Because if they get close enough to you and you lose them, you’re not sure what you’ll do.”

She looks at you, her eyes red rimmed. “Kurosaki, tell me. You said you’d be honest with me. Who did /you/ lose?”

".... My mother was killed by one of those monsters. Practically in my arms."

"I don't know if it was because I blamed myself for what happened, but ever since then there's only ever been one thing I've been afraid of. That sense of helplessness. Unable to d anything but watch terrified as the most important person in my life faded away."

"I promised myself it would never happen again. I got stronger for fights, got smarter. My Dad's a doctor, so I've been reading some of his medical texts on the side. Watch out for my sisters, watch my friends backs."

"And now I'm coming to find out I've covered maybe five percent of my bases, and I never even knew the half of what I was up against."

Way too over the top. I don't think we're angry about it anymore (we killed her killer after all) it's just a wound that can't quite ever heal.

"If you asked me before yesterday...I would have told you that I killed my mother."

Pregnant Pause.

"...last night I met the bastard who did...who gloated about it, I cut his mask in half after I took the giant out. She died protecting me from him. I need to be strong enough that no one needs to protect me...I need to be able to protect everyone. I guess in a way...in a way I still caused her to die...mysterious power loss of no..."

True, but in the original story, he adamantly believed he killed her...without knowing the details. He even told it to Rukia like that after he asked for time off from being a soul reaper for the anniversary of her death.

Technically.
He was born in Soul Society, rather than ending up there after dying in this world, basically.

Compare how into us Orihime seems with how into Orihime Chizuru used to be, perhaps...in that Chizuru was a lusty comet, streaking by leaving a brilliant bright red line across the atmosphere...but Orihime is a planet killing asteroid that won't get the fires until impact...and it might throw planet ichigo off it's orbit entirely, if it survives.

But Chisuru is a bro? In fact, I think she's going to be a good bro for Bo Keigo and Mizuiro as well. Her problem was not realizing that straight dudes that get that she isn't into their gender make decent bros. her circle of friends is going to grow pretty quickly I think.

Personally, I think we should buy a hug whiteboard and put it in our room.

"Ichigo? What is this?"

"This?" Gesturing to a giant CSI style web of half formed sentences and thoughts linked together with lines, pins, and reference notes. "Getting my thoughts out on paper."

"Heavy thoughts, by the look of things. What's it about?"

"Women."

".... Explain."

"Alright, so a girl I like has been encouraging a friend of hers to seduce me.... and somehow this directly lead to making out with a lesbian." Gesture to the board. "I'm trying to reverse engineer the logic of that, and gain a deeper understanding of how the hell all this works."

"Son. You need help."

"... You mean advice?"

"I mean professional help."

Hey Irksome; I've been reading over that Zanpakuto listing for your D20 version... I know you guys are still developing things, but I think you guys could use some "skill tree" diagrams for some of the abilities that I would be happy to make for you since it looks like each of the abilities sort of has its own little tree and a few one off or minor chain abilities. You could always use a little more to make things more varied, but I like this route and if you want I'd be happy to try and give you some graphical representation when things are more set in stone.

Chad sees it and doesn't really question it.

Orihime and Tatsuki both look at it questioningly, before shrugging it off, not knowing it's secrets.

Chizuru laughs openly to our face before giving us another kiss just to fuck with us.

Mizuiro calmly pulls out a pen and corrects a few details after barely glancing at it, despite the elaborate code and complexity that we hadn't yet had a chance to explain.

Secretly Zangetsu and Hichigo have a similar board in their world, and one of them always runs off hiding it as the other stays to distract Ichigo whenever he comes in.

Reminder: Acquire catnip before we head back to Urahara's.

We've been meaning to do this for a long fucking time, but we keep forgetting to bring it up.

And yes, this is a 100% serious suggestion. How can you meet a talking cat and NOT give it catnip?

I think Uryu would be impressed by our dedication and obsessive attention to detail, just slightly disappointed in what we choose to spend our time on.

TALKING. CAT.

Anyway, Catnip is all-natural and not illegal. Also, I'm pretty sure the actual level of effect is closer to cannabis, at least thats what it always seemed like with my cats. They'd just roll in it a bit, bat around a toy, and take a super-relaxed nap for a few hours.

You look away from her. “I’ve been able to see ghosts for as long as I remember. I couldn’t tell them apart from the living, but I didn’t think it was such a big deal. Until that day…”

You clench your fists. “I loved my mom. Not once did I see mom cry or get mad. She was always there for me with a smile, even if I was crying over losing. I think she didn’t want her troubles carried down to me. So, no matter what bad things happened, I could forget it all by returning to her side.

“She was the center, of which our family revolved. When I was little, I head my dad say ‘Ichigo’ has the meaning ‘to protect one thing.’ And, at that time, I could only think that if that was true, I wanted to protect mom.

“Mom, who always protected me.”

You let out a bitter smile, looking into your reflection from the ramen broth.

“On that day, and the days before it rained, raising the river level. Despite that, there was a girl standing at the edge without an umbrella, like she wanted to jump in. I didn’t know it was a spirit, I couldn’t tell back then. At first I only wanted to protect mom, but that increased with the birth of my sisters. I went to the dojo for that sake, to get stronger.

“The ones I thought I wanted to protect grew more and more. So I tried to save that girl. At the time, I didn’t know what had happened. When I woke up, her body was covering mine, wounded and the girl had disappeared. It was clear she did it to save me.”

You nails dig into your palms, drawing blood. “I loved my mother. She was the center that my family revolved around. And even now I can only think ‘I stole mom from that center. From them’”

You finally glance at Honsho, she’s listening intently. You continue speaking, your voice rough and throaty.

".... My mother was killed by one of those monsters. Practically in my arms."

"I don't know if it was because I blamed myself for what happened, but ever since then there's only ever been one thing I've been afraid of. That sense of helplessness. Unable to d anything but watch terrified as the most important person in my life faded away."

"I promised myself it would never happen again. I got stronger for fights, got smarter. My Dad's a doctor, so I've been reading some of his medical texts on the side. Watch out for my sisters, watch my friends backs."

"And now I'm coming to find out I've covered maybe five percent of my bases, and I never even knew the half of what I was up against."

You give a self-depreciating grin. “"Imagine building a boat that can cross that pond in the park down the road, and then one day you take a trip to the Ocean. I'm seriously out of my depth, and the only thing I really hate is being out of my depth."

You feel an arm draw around your shoulder and you’re brought into an awkward kind of hug. “And since that day you’ve stopped smiling. Stopped crying. You’ve soldiered on, trying to make up for you mother’s death. You’re strong, Kurosaki. You really are. I’ve seen you beat up delinquents before. I’m sure you’re doing your best to get stronger and stronger.”

You look up a Honsho and she’s staring at you with a sad smile. “But don’t you think living that way would make your mother sad? Wherever she is, I think she’d want you to be happy, not pushing people away and making yourself miserable because of her, always looking towards the past.

“Kurosaki, life hurts. It wears away at people and we’re not able to fix the problems inside our hearts ourselves. So we depend on other people to do it for us, and they depend on us to do it for them. Sure, we might lose them and it’ll hurt and you’ll never want to feel or cause that pain again. I’m certain you know that feeling well enough. We also find a goal or a dream to hold onto, something to work towards.”

Her smile sharpens, and you see determination burn in her eyes. “So take that chance and if you find that person, embrace them with all of your heart. Don’t keep thinking ‘what if they get hurt.’ Think ‘I’m not going to let this person get hurt!’ Pursue that dream, no matter how crazy it is or how hard it seems!”

She pulls you around and grips you by the shoulders tightly. “You’re a fighter, right Kurosaki?! So find a good reason to win and come home! I’m not going to tell you to go after Hime. I’m not telling you to fall in love with the next person you meet. I’m telling you to stop looking backwards and look towards your future, Kurosaki. Protecting people can only take you so far. What do you want to DO with your life?!”

Her face is in front of yours, her eyes locked with yours.

You give her a nod and pull her into a hug. She tenses for a second before relaxing. “You know, when I said embrace someone, I didn’t mean me, Kurosaki.”

You can hear the teasing in her voice and you let go and see her looking embarrassed. She crosses her arms and looks away. You smile slightly shrugging. “Thanks, Chizuru. Really. I needed that.”

She looks back at you smiling teasingly. “Of course you did. I’m a lady and we’re much better with these emotions things then you men. I‘ll even let the name thing, slide, Ichigo.”

You both return to you ramen and finish it in a much more relaxed silence. The ramen’s lukewarm now, but you don’t really seem to mind. When the bill comes up, you raise a hand as she moves to pay. “I’ve got this one. I owe you, after all.”

She looks skeptical but shrugs and allows it. As the two of you stand up to leave, Chizuru looks back at you.

“This was fun, Ichigo. Really sappy and emotional… but fun. We should hang out again, sometime.”

I'm a bit worried of being caught outside alone when the punitive force from SS shows up. Because I think we all know its coming sooner or later, probably sooner since I don't think they would just miss a fucking Menos ripping its way into the world of the living and getting suddenly obliterated by an unregistered Shinigami wearing a fucking Hollow mask.

You nod you head. “Sure. Sounds good. It's oddly comforting to be around a cute girl who is unlikely to seduce me. I guess you are better at the emotional stuff."

Chizuru smirks at you deviously. “Be relieved you’re not a girl, Ichigo. Or else I’d have used this time to lure you away and teach you the forbidden pleasures of a woman.”

Her smile lightens. “But I’m kinda glad you aren’t. Its nice just to have a friend for once.”

She nods at you and walks towards the train station and you turn around and decide to go hunt for hollows. Reaching out with your sixth sense…

>19 spirit detection

You find a hollow’s presence not too far away, it seems. Doesn’t seem too strong, but it’d be best to take care of it. Seconds later, you’re speeding towards it in your shinigami form.

Shit, she's part of the 13 Court Guard...and she doesn't know about us so either Rukia is dead by Aizen, or she is playing her game close to the chest.

"Sorry, I don't just give out my name to every armed angry short ghost I meet. As for the rest, and you're probably aren't going to believe this part, but I'm just a spiritually aware human who has developed shinigami powers after an out of body experience and am just trying to protect my home from a sudden over abundance of hollows, like yesterday when we were overrun by the things before the one the size of a skyscraper showed up."

You point a finger at her. "Pretty sure it's bad manners to ask who someone is without telling them who you are first"

Your eyes narrow. "Are you the authorized representative for the area then?

"Because there were literally hundreds of Hollows here yesterday trying to kill everything that I had to deal with by myself.

Her eyes narrow. Well then Mr. ‘Ichigo’ I am Lieutenant Hinamori Momo of the Fifth Division. Please surrender yourself to my custody immediately so you can be taken in for questioning.

>mimic Yoruichi to get behind her
>try to talk it out
>20

You narrow you eyes and, trying to mimic Yoruichi, move to appear behind her. You see her stiffen in surprise as you put your hand on her shoulder.

“Look can we talk this out? What I am by birth is already enough for them to condemn me to death twice over. I will not set foot in the Seiretei as a prisoner...there is still someone I need to save."

You see her double over, grabbing her stomach in pain. As you turn her around, you notice a white caustic substance rising out of her mouth, beginning to cover her face rapidly.

The spiritual presence around her now reminds you of a hollow.

He said it was a new brew he wanted to try. Oh well, next episode we're off to the Shoten...unless this just looks like a hollowfication without the rietsu...in which case, it is a trap within a trap. Or saving her life is also the trap....AIZEN!

Coulda sworn Urahara mentioned Aizen's apparent dickery with hollowification. Not too much of a cognitive leap to think he just MIGHT be involved with Momo's current state.

And as soon as we talk to Urahara and the Visards, they'll tell us thats bullshit and it doesn't work that way.

On the other hand, she's Aizens lieutenant. You know, the same Aizen who we know enjoys hollowifying his allies for fun and profit? Once that little tidbit comes up, I think we'll be able to put two and two together.

I'm pretty sure Ichigo wouldn't default to "OH GOD I TURN PEOPLE INTO HOLLOWS". For all he knows a Hollow's pulled an Alien and facehugged her. It's just far more likely that it's the result of something that happened before she showed up in town.
>>
>>25751880
True, but we don't know anything about Momo, certainly not that she's Aizen's second-in-command

>>25751888
He sent Momo as a Hollow!Bomb on a suicide mission.

I think he's beyond giving a fuck.

Okay, so for questions, so far the only reply since Cosgrove's reminder has been:
What is the status of Rukia?

Do we want to go with that, or are people going to start pitching in suggestions?
>>
>>25751909
Urahara and Shinji should upon seeing/hearing that she's 5th division lieutenant extrapolate her relation with Aizen
>>
Rolled 11

>>25751888
Well if I was gonna meta game that's one way I'd look at it. The other is that Aizen probably has someone watching this fight and is waiting to see what happens. He already learned that the hollow juice works now he just needs to findout whether or not we lead him to the Viazard and/or Urahara.
>>
>>25751909
No but Urahara/Yoruichi/Shinji certainly wil. Remember that she told us she was from Squad 5, they'll make the connection instantly.

Its not like we need that information right away anyway. We're going to be much too busy trying to fix the fucking problem to bother laying out blame.
>>
>>25751945
The full question should be "What has happened to Rukia since we last saw her, as told through the lost art of the Poetic Edda?"
>>
>>25751945
Sounds good to me.
>>
>>25751945
That'll do

A few suggestions
-Who are Aizen's co-conspirators?
-Are any of Ichigo's friends under the influence of an enemy?
-How can Ichigo step up his training?

Who is Cosgrove hoping we'll waifu the hardest for?

We should ask him what question he wants us to ask him

I think Orihime

I hope Yoruichi

I hope in vain Matsumoto

But that would use up our question and we wouldn't get an answer to the second question.
>>
>>25751945
>What is the status of Rukia?
I like it. It's something we've been clamoring for for a while now, and Cos can make it vague enough for us to go ballistic over which is always fun.
Like, imagine he just says "She's in grave danger" and watch everyone fucking panic and go WE MUST SOUL SOCIETY NOW.
And if there's not much going on we can go to Afterlife Mexico to look for our mom without worrying too much about her, maybe.

I honestly doubt its Orihime. I think she's being set up to be some kind of bestgirl red herring.

She SEEMS like the obvious choice, but that insane level of devotion, it reminds me of the early stages of a CERTAIN SOMEONE. Maybe I'm just paranoid, but just because you're paranoid doesn't mean the girl isn't going to knock you out and lock you up in her underground sex dungeon.

Now, of course, this won't dissuade me from my glorious Hime, but from an "I'm too genre savvy for this shit" standpoint I'm fucking terrified.

I just had the best idea, we jinzen with her sword to get into her inner world and help her subjugate her inner hollow if we don't think we can get her to Kisuke on time.

I'm not sure you can do that to/with someone else's sword

Might just accelerate the process, could KO the 'shinigami' and give the 'hollow' free reign over the body.
>>
>>25752285
On that note, could Orihime in theory just zap the Hollow out of somebody?

Wouldn't work on Ichigo since he was born with it (nor would we want it to really), but for someone like Momo she would just have to revert her to a pre-Hollow Tea drinking state.

Not that we should be giving it a field test, that would be a bad fucking idea. Just something to think about.

Gin, I can't find the mark 57 hollow fixation formula, the liquid born agent in the filter bags. Have you seen them around the secret lab?

I saw you take it up to you room two nights ago.

What, no, that was my rose hips with champaign leves tea, I got is special from a shop in the 6th district.

Aizen, that's still sitting on the counter if the secret lab communal kitchenette...

OH GOD! Gin, I drank that yea?! ...AND I Served it to Momo before sending her to the living world!

So, freaking out about Hollomo aside, did we just learn Shunpo?

>>25752655
Shunpo and Shunpo aren't the same.
There's "going rather fast" which everyone with the least amount of self respect learns eventually, too.
Yachiru is hella fast, but she can't quite blink out like others do, so we might still be on a rather low level.

>>25752435
Yea, her so-called "healing" ability is really just rewinding time, although I wonder whether using the ability in such a case wouldn't just make Momo kill over again once the effect dissipates since what triggered is lies too far in the past.

>>25752407
>Might just accelerate the process, could KO the 'shinigami' and give the 'hollow' free reign over the body.
Seconded, especially since this is artificial.
>>
So, I don't think assassinating us is the primary objective of this little Hollow-Bomb.

I think Aizen is trying to frame us as some sort of monster who runs around hollowifying Soul Reapers.

I mean sure, if we ended up dying here that would be a fun bonus for him, but with the Visards and Urahara in town he can't actually be expecting that result.

It's selective time manipulation, afterall she could've healed Yamatos arm after it'd been destroyed but she skips the step where-in it took all the damage in the first place merely putting it back to the origional state of whole.

There shouldn't technically be such a thing as 'too far back' for her. Also don't forget she's actually able to destroy the god pill.

>Yachiru
You mean Momo, right?

>Shunpo and Shunpo aren't the same.
Wat.

>but she can't quite blink out like others do,
That's not how Shunpo works. It's just moving really fucking fast. And All the Lieutenants have been shown to be able to do it easily enough for it to qualify as having that blink effect. Just not Yoruichi's fuckoff-nuts level.

Arrancar Sonido is a lot closer to bamf-ing than Shunpo is; which is one of the reasons the espada gave SS such shits early on.
>>
>>25752892
>Yea, her so-called "healing" ability is really just rewinding time

False, as stated by Aizen.

Ulquiorra thought it was temporal regression, but that was shot down by Aizen.

What Orihime's power does is outright rejection of something. i.e the directly negates the existence of the injury.

It was implied that she can even tell metaphysical concepts to fuck right off if she has sufficient will to do so.

Determined, Assertive Orihime is far more hax than mere time wizardry.
