Bleach Quest: REDUXAny one time we throw away pridewe take a step closer to becoming beasts.Any one time we kill an emotionwe take a step back from becoming beasts.Chapter Four: I really dig those Quincy Blues>Kurosaki Ichigo character sheet-spoilers for archive readers: http://pastebin.com/kgeS1JfY>15 xp available.Last time, Ichigo encountered a strange sword in Kyoto, as well as a ghostly iron-clad knight. Seizing the sword as the Knight faded, it seemed like a twisted parody, with a familiar hole in the chest and sinister yellow eyes appeared in front of it. Barely beating it, the sword crumbled and Ichigo gained a new power [The Black Armor] for his full bring. Returnnig to Karakura, he was confronted by the Shinigami ‘Kuchiki Rukia’ who warned him to stay away from ‘the Quincy’. Soon after, a mysterious cloth note- beautifully embroidered- appeared to Ichigo.“Do you Hate Shinigami?Karakura High>Monday, Lunchtime.Staring down at your notebook, you tap your pen against the paper as you review everything you know on ‘The Quincy’ as you’ve decided to refer to this individual. Firstly, this person seems to know who you are. Secondly, this person seems to hate Shinigami (maybe?). Thirdly, though a theory, the elaborate and delicate cloth note seemed rather feminine- so odds are this ‘Quincy’ could be a girl?Well, if you think about it- this person also would probably know who that girl really is- the Shinigami that keeps pestering you. Your stomach twists at the thought of her.Nearby, you hear Chad talking about a Parakeet he got- it was supposedly odd, but it somehow escaped its cage and left yesterday night after Chad had gotten hit by a car. The Shinigami seems to be ignoring the matter, focusing on figuring out a juice box.>1/2
>>33922401Grimacing, you draw your focus back to your notes. You’re at a bit of an impasse here. You can’t really investigate too openly with the Shinigami following you around- she’ll be on to you. Sighing, you move as you feel Keigo move, letting him trip and slam face first into the pavement. Closing the book, you grumble as the lunch bell rings, announcing that students should return to class.You let the day trickle past you until the school day ends.>[ ]Go see if Urahara has any jobs?>[ ]Go work on your powers>[ ]Look into any strange rumors>[ ]See if an available friend is busy- Chad(bros)/Keigo(he’s Keigo)/Mizuiro(might be busy?)>[ ]Go find some ill-mannered punks- teach them the dangers of being ill-mannered punks in your neighborhood

>>33922659Cosgrove is only taking a break from that quest. trust me if it's dead he would say so.
>>33922659No, Cosgrove's probably just using BQR to get back in the groove of questing. PPQ is pretty far in so any missteps in his writing and handling of situations will be felt far more.
>>33922659It's frozen in ice, it'll be thawed out in a few decades.
>>33922711This, basically. I want to make sure I don't fuck up anything- especially for when Felicia gets back or with Flash or the F4. But that's PPQ, not BQR, so...>Writing
Well now it looks like you're back again. How refreshing to see how interested you are in how this story unfolds.

>>33922771I was wondering also if we could learn Don Kanonji's power blast, I mean yeah it's weak as fuck, but I believe it's only because doesn't have a high amount of spirit energy, but under the hands of Ichigo with his reserves this would be a deadly ki blast under his command and he wouldn't need to learn kido. Also considering Don Kanonji can use ability believe Ichigo would be able to learn this technique quickly.Kan'onji-Style Final Super Attack: Kan'onball (観音寺流最終奥義・観音寺弾, Kan'onji-ryū Saishū Ōgi: Kyanomboru): Don Kanonji's special attack. It consists of a tiny ball of sky-blue light which moves slowly before exploding with a surprising amount of power. While assuming the Karakura-Raizer Spirit alias, he calls the technique Raizer Kan'onball (ライザーキャノンボール, Raiza Kyanomboru).
>>33922838Thank you Captain Gin-senpai! Can we expect you in story soon?
>>33922887it would definitely be a good range attack to have.
>>33922920By the time you see me, it will already be too late. Just kidding! I'm sure we'll meet and exchange pleasantries soon enough.
Excellent.[x] Check in on chad, if everyone else is busy we should[x] get work from urahara later.
>>33922887Considering we already Don Kanonji I believe Ichigo would be able to learn this once by looking at it. Considering This is Cosgrove's Quest and anything could happen, I wouldn't be surprised if he could learn this as quickly as Goku learned the Kamehameha from Master Roshi.
In the end, you decided to hang out with Chad. Well, you say that, but in the end its more of you’re accompanying him as he goes to purchase the new Carnivore Kingdom Collector’s Edition Bluray release. It’s not surprising to you, really. Having known Chad as well as you do, it only makes sense that he want s to get it. He’s got all of the others and seems to like the show.At the very least, you aren’t going with him to get anything for Kanonji’s stupid show. Jeez, how does everyone else you know like his show?“So, Chad, sorry to hear about the Parakeet.”Chad shrugs, scratching his head. “I… don’t remember much. Apparently got a good hit to my head. Its fuzzy. When I woke up, it was gone.”You grimace as you recall the Urahara mission that was taken down. Seems like that one was taken care of already- guessing by Chad’s memory problems it was that Shinigami stepping in. Seems like things have only gotten crazier since she’s shown up.The two of you walk into the mall heading to the store, wading past tons of people. Man this area’s never this bus-“BWAHAHAHA!”You freeze as you hear a familiar laugh as Chad tenses, his eyes almost shining in excitement. Man, actually, that’s kinda creepy Chad….Seems like Kanonji’s here, making a public appearance. Great.You narrow your eyes as the man spouts out his catchphrase to several children, who squeal in excitement. Man, what a fraud.>[ ]Bail. Bail hard. Nope.>[ ]Surely there’s a fire alarm near here somewhere.>[ ]Chad, I’ll go get your thing, I’ll meet up with you later.>[ ]You are a bastion of patience. A pillar of passiveness.>[ ]Hassle mode, full power.
>>33923272>[x]Chad, I’ll go get your thing, I’ll meet up with you later.

>>33923272>[x]Hassle mode, full power.Ichigo can't help it
>>33923272>>[ ]You are a bastion of patience. A pillar of passiveness.Chad is our bro. We can bear with it.
>>33923272>Hassle mode, full power.If only because we learn this technique.>>33922887
>>33923272>[ ]You are a bastion of patience. A pillar of passiveness.Don't shit on those kids' parade, be a good friend and suck it up Ichigo!
>>33923272>[ ]Hassle mode, full power.>>33922887Hmm, whoever wrote explain why this ability would be helpful to us? Considering all the shit Ichigo faces against, would this even cause any damage?
We don't even need to do anything. The universe has a way of working itself out and will shit on Don all on its lonesome.
>>33923272>>[ ]You are a bastion of patience. A pillar of passiveness.Any other day, it would've been fraud busting time.But in the presence of Chad and children who idolize the geezer? Nah.Ichigo will probably draw the line at "My Number 1 Student!" though.
>>33923272>[ ]You are a bastion of patience. A pillar of passiveness.Chad's a fan, Chad's our best friend, we can put up with Kanonji for Giant Bro.
>>33923272>[ ]You are a bastion of patience. A pillar of passiveness.gotta keep calm for the bro
>>33922707>>33922711>>33922732Oh, kinda like how the original bleach quest is still alive and a possibility? Because we all know Cosgrove never declared that one dead either
>>33923647Cosgrove flat out stated earlier that he's going to get back to Parker Quest.>>33922771
>>33923647He DID however kill Kamen Rider Quest.And who knows he might just be doing redux to get his feet wet and may very well continue the original or just keep going with this one. Or he could drop both and go full PPQ again. Who knows?
>>33922887>>33923494As I explained. When Don Kanonji uses this it's weak as hell because he doesn't have a lot of spirit energy even though he has more than a regular person. But as we learned in Bleach a person with more spirit energy is able to amplify ones ability or kido, as seen with renji when he tried to use one but than it blew up in his face.If someone like Ichigo gained Kanonji's technique it's base properties would amplified greatly. Such as changing the size of the orb to large or small, and cause it to do more or less damage. Like Rukia if she were using her kido.Thats the best I can explain.But trust it's a better techniuqe to learn considering it's a long time to learn proper kido and all. Also if we are not siding with the soul society it's better to learn this move from someone who is not a soul reaper considering Ichigo is racist against them and all.
>>33922771>>33923708And we appreciate that he is taking the time to work on it so it will be most excellent when it does return.>>33923737Or, Redux is actually a fever dream Ichigo had before he gained his powers back.
>>33923768It's gonna be great!Until then, I'm enjoying my confusion at this quest.
>>33923737>Kamen Rider Quest.Cos did a KR quest?I need to check this out
>>33923798It was extremely short lived unfortunately.... and probably came about as a result of people always wanting to Rider Kick in BQ or rock a sentai outfit in PPQ.
There’s a million things you’d rather do but you just grin and bear it. You think of things that could be worse. They really could be. Like that Shinigami could be here. You could be in your underwear. Yes. Many worse things.You remain neutrally quiet and stick by Chad’s side as the two of you advance forward until, what feels like hours later, you’re before Kanonji. You repeat you mantra as Chad mimics Kanonji’s laughing posture and Chad gets his autograph. You try to keep inconspicuous, but Kanonji turns to you nevertheless as he seems to take you quiet repulsed form as a star struck fan. He smiles and tries to, as he sees it, 'break the ice.'“Tell me, young man, what was your favorite of my programs you’ve seen?”>[ ]“The ones I’ve ruined by beating you to the punch.”>[ ]Remain quiet and stare at him unnervingly.>[ ]don’t punch him. Don’t punch him. Don’t Punch him. Alright, punch him.>[ ]Just walk away.
>>33923969>[x]“The ones I’ve ruined by beating you to the punch.”Ichigo probably has those on tape
>>33923969>[ ]Remain quiet and stare at him unnervingly.Try and fail at Poker Face
>>33923969"There's just no way I could possibly pick a favorite"as soon as he turns away mutter, "because they're all terrible
>>33923969>[ ]Remain quiet and stare at him unnervingly.Just give him the Eeeeeeevil Eye
>>33923969>>[ ]“The ones I’ve ruined by beating you to the punch.”AKA: The unaired episodes. Best episodes never seen.
>Urge to be dick rising>Want to blow him the fuck out>Must maintain>Do it for Chad>Do it for Orihime>Can't... last... much... longer...
>>33923969[Write in] "There's just no way I could possibly pick a favorite"as soon as he turns away mutter, "because they're all terrible'>>33923764ok renji is not a good example to explain someone who can amplify their spirit energy, a better example would be someone like Aizen once he combines with the Hogyoku as we see his base kido abilities are greatly increased. But agree this ability could come in handy, especially in our base human form. Also speaking of the properties we could control the spirit orb to travel faster towards our target, considering NOYONE would stick around long enugh to get hit by it.Also...>>33922771I can't wait to see what happens on the next PPQ.
>>33923969>[ ]don’t punch him. Don’t punch him. Don’t Punch him. Alright, punch him.
>>33924065>[Write in] "There's just no way I could possibly pick a favorite">as soon as he turns away mutter, "because they're all terrible'Oh, this. I like this.

>>33923969>[Write in] "There's just no way I could possibly pick a favorite">as soon as he turns away mutter, "because they're all terrible'Too quiet for others to hear, just loud enough for him to hear.
>>33924065Yeah, but make sure the second part isn't audible.
>[x]“The ones I’ve ruined by beating you to the punch.”
>roll me 1d100, please.
>>33923768>Or, Redux is actually a fever dream Ichigo had before he gained his powers back.I doubt it. Last we left BQ Momo just broke up with us and we were slowly recovering having our soul shredded.
>>33924343Damn that's some good shit
>>33924329>>33924343>>33924351And so we continue the Cosgrove questing tradition of knocking it out of the park except in combat when it matters.Strangely slow night too...
>>33924343>>33924351>>33924329...wait, aren't high rolls bad?
>>33924413No, it's just the crits that are switched
Rolled 75>>33924329>>33924343>>33924351Whoa above 50 o-0Hopefully our luck does not run out.
>>33924413No, only a 100 is bad.
>>33924413I suspect that depends on who the roll is for.
>>33924413no high rolls are good unless we accidently 100, in which case we fuck it completely kubo style.also if we get a 1 its essentially a crit, crits are reversed but its still a roll higher system.
>>33924438>>33924446>>33924449Oh thank god, that's a huge relief.
Rolled 46>>33924442just keep mind that if we get critical success (a 100 dice) we fail big time.
>>33924493sorry I didn't notice my roll was on
>>33924493Most likely a "You won so hard you looped back around to shit" whereas a 1 would be "You failed so godamn hard the universe bent and you won with your suckiness somehow."
>>33924493at this point i'm also curious as to whats in the Kubo boxfor example i'm guessing enemies powerscale with us as well and that the situation is probably reversed where Aizen is actually the good guy the whole time and Soul Society is guarding an actual eldritchian monster like what might be suspected right now.
>>33924549I think it's more a joke on how Ichigo's theme is "Number One."
>>33924579There was an Aizen quest a while back that looked like it was setting up something like that, but I can't find it in the archives.
You give him a brittle, forced smile, trying to act cheerful. It’s pretty much the worst smile you’ve ever made, and you’d really probably like to hurt him, but he buys it as you wave your arms in faked panic. “There’s no way I could possibly pick a favorite!”Lowering your volume to almost unbearable levels, you continue on- barely moving your lips. “…because they’re all terrible.”Don Kanonji holds his chin in thought, having not heard the last bit as he considers your response before laughing normally. “Of course, that’s the answer of a true fan!”Looking over, you see Urahara, Ururu, Jinta, and Tessai nearby. Urahara is smiling,. Why is Urahara smiling like that. You see him mouth ‘payback’ as he speaks in a horrible impersonation of your voice-just loud enough to be heard.“Kanonji will never expect that I’ve possessed this boy to disillusion his fans. Huehuehuehue.”Kanonji drops his pen as he stares at you in shock as the crowd starts murmuring excitedly. “This… This….”“THIS SMELLS LIKE BAD SPIRITS!”The crowd shouts alongside him, including Chad. You too Chad? Not cool man. Not cool at all.Damn you, Hat-and-Clogs. You’ll pay for this.>[ ]flee while The crowd’s still distracted.>[ ]Play along, ham it up with your full bring. At least have some fun treating Kanonji like a fool.>[ ]Write in
>>33924579Eh, I don't know we're like a couple months away from seeing the truth of the Soul King, and don't forget that Yhwach is now a semi-known factor.He's awake, and only a year or two away from regaining full power.
>>33924750>[ ]flee while The crowd’s still distracted.NOPE NOPE NOPE NOOOOOOOPEHat and Clogs you have fucked us. We should probably kick you in the face less... but you should stop drugging minors.
>>33924766Smart money's on YWCH being a fraction of, sone of, or a second Soul King
>>33924750>[ ]Play along, ham it up with your full bring. At least have some fun treating Kanonji like a fool.Pull your punches though. He's annoying but he's still just a kinda-normal dude.
>>33924750>OOOPE>Damn You Hat and Clogs you asshole!>[ ]Play along, ham it up with your full bring. At least have some fun treating Kanonji like a fool.-Pick this since we might learn how Kanoji does his technique.>>33922887
>>33924750Arms crossed, one eyebrow raised.The entire show
>>33924875And then we get riggidy raggidy rektjust watch
>>33924750>Play along...yadda yadda
>>33924750>[ ]Play along, ham it up with your full bring. At least have some fun treating Kanonji like a fool.Actually, we should thank Urahara. This gives us the perfect excuse to beat the shit out of Kanonji on live TV, and show him getting beat at his own game. Not by a punk teenager, but by the very spirits he claims to be able to fight.
>>33924750>Kick Urahara in the headHe's earned it.
>>33924960I like the way you think.IT"S PAYBACK!
>>33924979THIS IS WHY HE STEALS OUR KIDNEYS AND GETS PEOPLE TO ATTACK US ON LIVE TV
>>33924750>[ ]Play along>[ ]Write in"Yes. I am possessed. By ghosts that wear black robes and wield swords."Make the speech as impassioned as possible. If Kanonji still falls for it, then there's no need to exert effort for acting.
So for everyone wanting us to use our Fullbring... you do realize we'd be more or less "unmasking: ourselves right? We'd be up shit creek on the daily.
>Roll me some hamming it up please and Fullbring, too I guess>1d100
Rolled 77>>33925074damnit stop posting just seconds before I do and making me wait on the timer to roll.
Rolled 41>>33925035And then we kick him in the head for it.It's a vicious cycle.>>33925074
>>33925035>implying thats not because he keeps drugging us and being a complete asshole.god damn it anon, he steals kidneys and gets people to attack us because he is a dick, not because of some form of revenge.this is why we dropkick hat and clogs, because his Ego is the size of a damn moon and he needs a good asskicking once in a while.
>>33924981Ichigo there is nothing you can do. I know you never run away from a fight especially on TV. If Don Kanoji beats you I get my revenge. If you defeat him I still win since I have ruined him.BHahahaha!I'm an evil Genious
>>33925216>implying Urahara isn't Aizen in this universe.
Rolled 35>>33925246>implying he isn't in canon
>>33925216...who cannot spell.
>>33925255reminder Aizen is dicking around pretending he is Shunsui in Canon and you can tell because of shenanigans like the version Aizen is running around as has 2 eyes as well as isn't constantly drinking and is inviting quincies for tea.
>>33925090NEAR MAXIMUM HAM. Brian Belssed would be proud
Rolled 97>>33925328Kubo already said the eyepatch thing was an error on his part due to being sick and having to rush out that chapter.The tea thing though is still a rather interesting bit. As for not constantly drinking, shit is going down in a big way and although he's a goof, Shunsui has been seen to serious the fuck up when needed.
>>33925262Obviously, that's on purpose to throw any suspicions off.>What's that? You are looking for Urahara KISUKE? Oh, I'm sorry but I'm Urahara KISKE. No "U" there. Haha~
>>33925387>KISKE.How do you even pronounce that without sounding insane?
>>33925385>kubo actually saying that was a mistake>implying he isn't trying to make it so it isn't obvious as hell that the shunsui in SS is Aizen and The real one is On the road back after dropping off the ticket thingies to ichigo's friends hoping like hell to make it in time.
>>33925461Keyskae i'd imagine for phonetically.
>>33925471>Implying Shunsui didn't take executive action as the new Captain Commander to free Aizen and be in cahoots with him
>>33925541now THAT is a hell of an idea.what if as the new CC he found out what the shit was the Royal Guards actual Purpose and what the hell the Soul King is for?what if it drove him to be alright with Aizen for now?
You pull on your coin and bring forth the Fullbring shroud as it surrounds not your arm, but your torso and head, as you solidify it to form the Black Armor as you chuckle as maliciously as you can. Kanonji jumps back in surprise as the crowd puzzles what’s going on.Naturally that’s because they can’t see, much like ghosts, spiritual phenomenon. If that shinigami showed up in her true guise she’d be just as invisible to them. However, Kanonji can see it perfectly before you remove the armor and return it to the shroud, that flows around you.“I figured I’d at least let you have a chance to figure out my plan before the end, after all.You didn’t seem to catch on all those times you failed to stop me before, after all…”Listing off places where you’ve beaten him to the chase, you see Kanonji seem like he’s figuring things out.“You scoundrel! I won’t let you get away with this!”Laughing more, you let the shroud begin to dissipate as you rapidly think of a thing to finish this as you see Urahara amused, you recall things you’d learned, unwillingly, from the Shinigami.“I think its time we part ways here. We’ll meet again, Kanonji.”You let the shroud begin to fade from around your head as Kanonji steps forward.“Wait, who are you?!”A demonic smile, like you’d show towards street punks you beat up crawls across your face. “Thwe time’s not yet ready for that. But for now…. I suppose you can call me… Hueco Mundo. Better luck next time…”You let the shroud drop as you call to the ground and feign unconsciousness before, slowly, you let yourself groan as you grab at your head. “W-what happened?”The crowd’s too busy growing crazy, so Chad helps you leave- acting like a giant barrier from people as you hear Kanonji call out behind you, but he can't get past the crowd. >1/2
>>33925772Soon after, you let out a sigh of relief as you exit the place. Waiting on a bench out of the way, Chad soon joins you, his Carnivore Kingdom box in a bag.“Possessed, Ichigo?”You shrug as you get up and head back with him. “I hate the guy, but had to roll with it.”Chad grunts as he recalls your somewhat unofficial job in Karakura. “I see.”Groaning, you scratch at your head. “Technically, I told him something he’d be dealing with if he continues to muck around with spirits. The more you get involved in the supernatural, the more it seems to be aware of you.”Chad makes a mocking warding signal of you before you laugh. “Sorry, man, you’re already doomed.”The train ride back to Karakura is full of good natured ribbing as you part ways with Chad. However, when you start heading back, you can feel the tension in the air, a crackling tension almost ready to strike.>1d100

Alright, if we're heading right into combat with this roll (I know the priority would be taking ass-kicking duties personally), mind if I ask if we can use [Lend] on Chad, specifically [The Black Armor] to buff up protection on him, just in case?
>>33926256You can only do that with other fullbrings I think and Chad hasn't absorbed enough if any plotrock radiation to awaken any spiritual abilities
>>33926256That would be cool, doesn't lending abilities allow them to gain XP independently from whatever else we get?
>>33926256Chad's all ready left, so unless he's the one getting attacked we don't need to worry about him.
>>33926291We lent it to that sword and that sure as shit wasn't a Fullbring

>NOW YOU FEEL LIKE NUMBER ONEStill intimately grasping the feeling of your Fullbring it almost instinctively comes forth as your ability [Weapon-meister] comes forth as you form a short sword, cutting through the mask of a hollow as you see that it, like the Knight Hollow, breaks apart into a radiant figure and light-like particles that you feel your Fullbring hungrily consume.>50 xp receivedStepping back, you see another two hollows spring forward as you let go of [Weapon-meister] and form over your arm instead [The Black Armor] as a hollow tries to bite down on the arm, only to receive a mouthful of hardened armored fist.

>>33926595you are able to spend xp if you desire..writing
>>33926537Like Samurai Armor, Tony Stark Iron Man armor, Medieval knight Armor or something else?
>>33926648And if we do that one of our other fullbring powers will level up tooI like this idea
>>33926648I'm in favor of leveling Fullbring, after that we have 65 Xp left, we could bank it or buy strength or toughness
>>33926683seeing as how it was described as a knight I'd wager european knight plate armor.
>>33926683Medieval knight armor dude, we got it from the sword in the stone
>>33926683>Its design ranges somewhere between the first and the third visually- its still not entirely solid or developed- its only level 1.
>>33926648I'd much rather get our Fullbring to cover our entire body when active before levelling it up.
>>33926706>>33926719I know, but there can be some difference.
>>33926743Thank you cosgrove. That sounds pretty cool. Also Hueco Mundo. Nice touch.
>>33926673>>33926595I'm ok with dumping enough XP to level up in Shroud I suppose.
>>33926775Agreed, I'd also like to buff up the stat boosts to rank 2, so randomly leveling up other stuff via ranking up the fullbring itself is strictly cheaper than picking them specifically
>>33926775Leveling up Fullbring levels up a random power for free`. It could be anything. It could even be a boat....I mean shroud.Also we don't need to worry about leveling the fullbring up to its next stage, we need to level it 10 times before it evolves it looks like.
>>33926845Good eye. Changing my votes from Shroud to leveling up Fullbring itself.
>>33926673Lets level up our Fullbring up to rank 1, level 2
>so you'd like to level up Fullbring to Level 2, Rank I, that's correct, right?
>>33926845Agreed. This way we get two upgrades for the price of one!
>>33926911Sure, let's go for it.
>>33926911Yes.>Fullbring, Rank I- level 1- 100 xp to levelTake it to the next level.Save the rest of the XP for situational reasons in the near future.
>>33926911Let's rock Cosgrove.
>>33926326you really shouldn't trust that guy 0_ohttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0m9QUoW5KnY>>33926911Also yes upgrade fullbring
>>33926595I'd rather up our basic stats, first - get speed, strength, toughness upped to lvl2 before we put exp in elsewhere.>>33926911Voting no.At the moment, four powers are cheaper, four more expensive.We're just as likely to waste exp as benefit.
>Fullbring- Level 2>roulette: CONSUME becomes level 3.>will have next part out soon
>>33927075oh god, we gonna consume the shit outta peoples abilities by the end of this mess.>eat peoples powers as a walking black hole of Go Juice>gain abilities.We sith lord now.

>>33927075To quote phil collins, I can feel it in the air tonight. I just hope nobody comes in thinking we are hollow or something with our crazy ability.
>>33927123I get the feeling that it won't be so much Darth Nihilus as it is more of pic related.
>>33927160to be fair, pretty soon if we keep uping the consume ability, i don't think we can enter soul soul society without eating the whole damn place as a giant black hole of energy sucking.
>>33927075Can we also buy strength or toughness? Preferably toughness.
>>33927183Not really. How consume works is far different from that.
>>33927123We RISA now.
>>33927183It looks like Consume isn't constantly on, and so far only works on other Fullbrings and Hollows.
>>33927241except you know, less of a god eating sociopathic asshole and more of a justice type of person who is simply pissed at the establishment for being a pack of douchebags.
>>33927183Not unless those places are made entirely of slain Hollows or Hollow accessories.And while I haven't kept up on Bleach, I'm pretty sure those things haven't happened yet.

>>33925803>>33926331Cosgrove, since you're talking about getting back into the swing of things I feel like I should point this out: the way you worded these posts was confusing. I thought at first that we were being attacked while still on the train, and was wondering where the Hollows had come from and why Chad wasn't reacting to us flailing around like that.

You decide to head somewhere out of the way as you keep an eye out for anything suspicious as you feel your Fullbring slowly shift itself as it adapts its new experiences, as it gets used to the defeated hollows’ remnants after what you assume is their purification maybe? Heading to near the graveyard- where there’d be almost nobody here, you keep an eye out for any signs of more hollows, but there doesn’t seem to be any in sight. You draw yourself into a clearing as you wait and listen. You feel something watching you. Or someone. You’re not sure. Waiting- you hear fast movement from someone before you see the Shinigami appear before she calms down, her breathing heavy.“You idiot! Where have you been? Its dangerous for spiritually aware people like you to be out when the hollows appear. You’ll be like a beacon saying ‘here’s a snack!’”You grimace as she walks up to you, intent to lecture you more when another figure walks out from the clearing. it’s a young man with black hair and glasses. “I think that was his Idea, Shinigami.”He spit’s the word out like it’s a poison as he adjusts his glasses and seems to observe you carefully and with interest as he watches your shroud fluctuate over your arm before staring disdainfully at the Shinigami girl as he pulls out what looks like a pog as she tenses.“That’s-”“Correct. So, I’m thinking of having a little contest to see who’s the better protector of this town. The Quincy or Shinigami?”He pauses before looking over at you. “That’s what I wanted to say, but it might just be more efficient to just kill the Shinigami here. What do you think, Kurosaki?”>1/2
>>33922887Don is a lot like Dan.An utter loser in his own world since he has to compete with things that have near god-like power, but if things were standardized and made "realistic" they would easily be among the most powerful characters in their respective series when stacked against normal humans.
>>33927993You tense as he, careful to keep a hand on the pog, turns his attention to you. “I’m not sure what your power is, but it seems to be able to purify a hollow as well as a Shinigami can."He shrugs and shakes his head, adjusting his glasses with his freehand afterward."But, even if I say that, to do that’s both reckless and distasteful, too likely to lead to consequences neither of us want to deal with. Even I’m not so stupid as to draw the Ire of the Soul Society. “How about a competition- you and I versus the Shinigami? She’s probably older than both of us together, so it would only be fair.”“Who the hell are you?” Blinking, the Quincy seems surprised before shaking his head. “We’ve met before, but only in passing. I’m a friend of Inoue Orihime- we’re members of the sewing club. Ishida Uryu I’m a friend of a friend, really. But even as little as you know me…”“I’m better than a Shinigami, wouldn’t you say?”The Shinigami girl looks tense and anxious, careful to keep her eye on that pog-thing as he waits for you to determine an answer.>[ ]Sure, sounds like Fun.>[ ]Jus a second, I’d have to confirm something.>[ ]No dice>[ ]I think I’d do better than either of you, really.>[ ]You know, from that embroidering, I thought you might’ve been a girl, you know.Also, all this talk of Aizen.

It's like some postmodernist dropped acid.> Dude- I got this, it's easy. We just tell him that what we are doing is like his thing.> Bro, that makes no sense at all.> I got this man, all we have to say it's justify if he helps put in money for a new rug man.> Man, let the rug go.> Dude it really put the room together! You just don't understand! Could you imagine what Rangiku would look on a new rug?> I don't think you need the butterfly thing though
>>33928006Just think about it.Don is sort of a strong medium when he is alive. When people die, they get stronger spiritual power. Moreso if they Hollow out.Vasto Lorde Kanonji?Captain-Commander Kanonji?

>>33928039"...the fuck are you even talking about?"
I know you're still kicking off the rust Cosgrove but your framing is a little shaky. Take a little extra time if you can to really paint a picture and make sure the audience knows what's going on.also:>>33928039>[ ]Sure, sounds like Fun."Its been a couple hours since I did something reckless so why not?"
>>33928039>[ ]Just a second, I’d have to confirm something.The Shinigami shrimp just said that spiritually aware people are vulnerable. Check with Urahara, we can't cover a large area by our lonesome.There's two spiritually rich persons here right now (three, if you count Rukia) so the bulk of Hollow slaying is gonna be on our hands.
>>33928039[x]You know, from that embroidering, I thought you might’ve been a girl, you know.[x] Rather than all this posturing, don't you think it's more important to be protecting people out there from more Hollows going amok?
>>33928039"You... you unleashed an army of soul-eating monsters just to be a dick?"This Ichigo seems a bit less moral than canon one, but still, I'd say that merits a huge "what the fuck"

>>33928209It's the pettiness that astonishes him.
>>33928039Oh good, now we have an in character chance to tell Ishida how fucking stupid this idea is.
>>33928039[Write in} say to uryu "your already better since your not a Shinigami"-Ask what the competition is? (even though we already know)Competition-Pros: We get to fight more hollows and get more exp from fighting.Cons: we might, and likely put our friends in danger. We also want to ship Ichigp and Rukia (Even though Ichigo's racism seems to make it impossible.
>>33928228>>33928209I could see that; add in a "dude what the fuck" shrug but nothing too abrasive since we're more or less on the same page.
>>33928039shouldn't you ask the shinigami if she even wants to compete? Just making people do shit is usually their business and, much as I hate saying it, she's usually not that bad
>>33928194Seconded. I can barely picture the scene. Take just a little extra time to make sure that the readers can see what you're seeing in your head when you type, Cosgrove.
Write in> We are no better than her if we do that. We have been doing fine without her for the longest time! Summoning hollows for sport? I mean, I empathize with you wanting to not be interfered with. > Write in an ad on craigslist. "Couch for sale. Very nice. Reasonably priced."
>>33928264All fun and games until someone gets eaten?
>>33928249>>33928039Also how about pricks, lets convince Uryu to not use the but than he somehow accidentally drops it.
>>33928277>>33928194My bad. I'll work on making it better. Basically- Ichigo's in a clearing near the graveyard that's surrounded by trees- Rukia comes rushing in- and Uryu walks out of the shadows after she starts berating Ichigo.
>>33928321Gotcha. Thanks for the clarification and for running.
>>33928249>Even though Ichigo's racism seems to make it impossible.this is a quote from an earlier thread, but it fits here>I want Ichigo and Rukia to hatefuck until they accidentally stop being racist
>>33928305>>33928209We don't know that he's holding Hollow Bait yet.>>33928266>>33928305She's a huge pain in our ass exerting an illegitimate authority over us. What right does she have to come barging into our life telling us what to do? We don't care about her feelings and we want her gone. That's not to say that we're willing to go to ANY LENGTHS to see her off, but we don't like her, have no reason to like her, and would be happy to see the back of her.
>>339283051. no knowledge of hollow bait2. we do not summon the improvaizen. Do not taunt the cosgrove.
>>33928372There's already a disproportionate amount of hollows, we just slew three at once.That doesn't seem normal.
>>33928311>>33928305Sorry, I meant to say lets not be pricks for once, and convince Uryu to not use the hollow bait if he decides to explain what it does because even if Ichigo hates shinigami I'm sure he is not so mad to endanger all the residance of his hometown. Also he does not know anything about Uryu's skill in dealing with hollows, also Ichigo needs to consider he's walking into an unknown right now.

>>33928039>>[ ]Sure, sounds like Fun.Rukia isn't exactly on our good side, and we're not exactly in a highly populated area. Only reason I can see to refuse is to make it a free-for-all rather than two on one.
>>33928249>>33928353Why would we want to do that? Ichigo hating Shinigami is an interesting quirk and a whole new take on his character that could go really interesting places and I want to play with it, not get rid of it. Keep in mind that his assessment of Shinigami actually seems to be accurate for the majority of them (per canon), and Rukia's done NOTHING to challenge it so far. In fact, she's just reinforced it.I reiterate: We have no reason to like her, legitimate reason to dislike her, and we shouldn't try to just toss that out because of ships that don't have any foundation in the quest's current canon.>>33928395We know nothing about Hollows except that they're evil and our Fullbring eats them. We literally learned that they even exist just this week.
Ok so after Chad we got on a train to go... wherever then we got off, walked a ways and were ambushed by hollows which we killed then decided "fuck it" and decided we wanted a fight so we headed to a graveyard were Rukia flash stepped in and started lecturing us before Ishida stepped out of the shadows </adjustglasses>, suggested we kill her together, said "lol jk" and now he wants us to take a hit of hollow bait for quincy pride.Sound about right?
>>33928411it will be the least healthy but most awesome relationship ever
[ ]Sure, sounds like Fun.Ishida brings up a damn good point. If nothing else, a friend of Ichigo's trusts him and Ichigo trusts his friends.
>>33928502Not quite: we don't know what the Hollow Bait is, and he hasn't suggested killing her, just running her out of town.
>>33928321>alright if we accept will we finally meeting with the fullbringers? Considering they get powered too fighting hollow?
>>33928502Seems kind of weird that we ambushed us.Like we should at least raise the subject and ask if that's normal, because if it isn't, we might already have an abnormal amount of hollow activity.Which means Menos time.
>>33928039Sounds like fun
>>33928474personally I don't want Ichigo to stop hating Shinigami. I would like him to be cool with any who act different from the norm, though. Which would have the added bonus of broing up with improvAizen
>>33928039Hey Cos, just got here and was wondering if you'd mind adding a banked xp stat to the character sheet. (I know we had 165 before the leveling Fullbring, but I can't seem to find how much we actually spent to do that.)Sorry to make more work for you, but it's useful information for us to have direct access to.
>>33928620voting to try and keep it this way
You’re a bit lost, but this is apparently serious here. That pog thing is apparently important, and the shinigami’s looking at it like it might be a grenade. It might. Weird spirit stuff.“So, wait. You’re a dude then? From that delicate embroidering, I thought you were probably a girl. Sorry.”Ishida looks a bit offput and embarrassed by your sidetracking as he clears his throat. “Yes, well, I was doing some gothic lolita style work and- ahem. That’s not important here. The thing is that The Shinigami and I will be having a competition. If you’re smart, you’ll compete too.”The shinigami steps forward but pauses as he raises the pog again. “Do you have any idea of what you’re saying?!”Ishida’s face goes cold and furious. “I watched my grandfather die- unable to defend himself due you your Shinigami laws- while the Shinigami ignored his pleas for help as a hollow killed him. My people- living people- were wiped out because of Shinigami- the dead killing the living to preserve their ‘balance’ when all the Quincies wanted to do was protect people.”You swallow as you remember a hazy memory- of Shinigami laughing at their fortune of not meeting ‘The Fisher” -probably a hollow. An old fury burns lightly at his words as he looks at you. “I’ve seen that look- you understand don’t you? That the Shinigami need to be taught a lesson.”His hand tenses as he stares at you. “Are you with me, Kurosaki? As humans we need to show the Shinigami that their presence here isn’t needed or welcome. Tonight- we can DO that tonight.”There’s a fury and need to be understood here in his eyes, one that you can understand. To your side, the shinigami watches you anxiously, worried.>[ ]Sure, let’s do whatever this is.>[ ]Sorry, but I think this sounds like people might get hurt. I can’t let you do this.>[ ]Sure, the shinigami are wrong- they’re a bunch of bastards but that’s why you need to be better than them.
>>33928620Look, I get why some people might want to befriend Rukia on a meta-game, OOC level, but even if we ignore the fact that IC Ichigo has absolutely no reason to even WANT to do this we'd still have to contend with the fact that doing so would pull us into Soul Society's orbit. Entering a SS arc would make the Karakura characters obsolete, and I don't want that.
>>33928673>[ ]Sorry, but I think this sounds like people might get hurt. I can’t let you do this.

>>33928673>[ ]Sure, the shinigami are wrong- they’re a bunch of bastards but that’s why you need to be better than them.If the Shinigami interjects, tell her to shut the fuck up.
>>33928673>>[ ]Sure, the shinigami are wrong- they’re a bunch of bastards but that’s why you need to be better than them.
>>33928608I'm with this. In my mind Ichigo thinks of the shinigami (in general) as corrupt (and often lazy) cops. If he ran into one that actually did the job right and proved themself to be a decent person he'd be cool with them, but that wouldn't excuse the department as a whole from being dysfunctional and filled with power tripping assholes acting with impunity. (This is a bit of an oversimplification, but close enough)
>>33928726THIS. ALL OF THIS.

>Do it>See hollow hole open up>WHOOOOOO-K YA NOT INTO THIS AND ALSO YOU'RE KIND OF AN ASSHOLE
>>33928789Like getting our mom hurt again, and this time including our sisters and friends?
Well i can see the aftermath of this vote and I wish I had popcorn
>>33928751Well, knowing canon Ichigo and this canon's Ichigo. -He has legit reasons to dislike Rukia and SS.-Ishida has a point about them being similar and friends of a mural friend.-Ichigo no matter what canon is thinking of people and wanting to save them.He's always been up for a fight, so long as people who can't fight aren't gonna get injured.
>>33928673On the one hand, I know that this is a bad idea. On the other hand, Ichigo doesn't. I'm going to have to go with>[ ]Sure, let’s do whatever this is.
>>33928673>Sure, the shinigami...Try to heavily imply we think he's planing a battle to the death with Rukia, since Ichigo clearly still has no idea what the fuck's going on.
>>33928673"So let me get this straight. You want to do something that proves you're better than Shinigami-I'm guessing fighting these hollow things, since that's what their job usually is-in the middle of a crowded city where all your friends, family, and loved ones live? Are you completely fucking stupid, or are you just tired from sewing too much?"
>>33928828Also have plenty of bags of popcorn.
>>33928673>>[ ]Sure, the shinigami are wrong- they’re a bunch of bastards but that’s why you need to be better than them.I'm pretty sure this is saying not to but if I stretch I can read it as agreeing to do this.

>counting, then writing
>>33928673>[ ]Sure, the shinigami are wrong- they’re a bunch of bastards but that’s why you need to be better than them.This probably won't convince him, but it's worth a try
>>33928860"And would you rather they be left unchecked so they can devour the innocent until a Shinigami is dispatched only to fail as they often do?"
>>33928673>[ ]Sure, the shinigami are wrong- they?re a bunch of bastards but that?s why you need to be better than them.If it involves putting those in need of protection into harms way in the first place, then there's really not much to talk about.
>>33928849Yeah, Ichigo doesn't know what's up. He probably thinks they're about to jump Rukia or something.
>>33928673Cosgrove pick both of these >>33928779>>33928726
>>33928860How bad could it be? We've fought five Hollows on our own so far and we curbstomped the fucking lot of them. With three of us going at it, I don't see how anyone could be in danger.
>>33928933Ok so last time e mastered Vizord and one shotted a Minos Grande then bitch sapped Ishida and drug him to Uraharas who gave us a lecture.And in this one we're breaking the bait with him to piss on Rukia and will most likely do ok until the Menos shows up and we all job until Urahara or another captain shows up then throttles us and Ishida.Oh me oh my how fate twists and turns...
I'm a little miffed. It looks like we've picked option 3, but it's out of character. Not because Ichigo wouldn't say that if he knew what was going on, but because he DOESN'T know what's going on and as such has no reason to think he needs to say it. If he understood what Uryu was suggesting it'd be his choice, but still being half in the dark I can't think of an IC reason for him to go that route. Can someone who picked it explain their thoughts to me?
>>33928933because he wants a fight with something that a Shinigami would have trouble with. That implies either a lot or some really strong ones
>>33928933Well lets, in cannon even though Rukia, Ichigo and Uryu were fighting these hollows, few managed to get away from them and attack Orihime and her friends and Ichigo's sisters in which chad had to appear to protect them.
>>33928999Okay, but how would Ichigo KNOW this?
>>33928933Hollows don't conveniently spawn on where we currently are to be taken out at our leisure. That's makes for a lot of area to cover with only three.Some Hollows might decide to deviate and go for easier pickings. Like Ichigo's Mom or Don Kanonji and his fans.
>>33929027Okay, but how would Ichigo know that this is what's about to happen?
>>339289969/10 says metagaming pure and simple.Although their are context clues like Rukia looking at what Ishida's holding as though it's a live grenade so Ichigo would have picked up whatever he's planning is dangerous.
>>33929019You know what I'm going to stop arguing by the end of this I'm sure Ichigo will learn from his bad mistakes and gain some character development so everything works out in the end.(hopefully)
>>33929101That's the impression I'm getting too. Cosgrove is going to have to lay some traps for metagamers if this turns into a trend.
>>33929078Rukia just said that spiritually aware people are vulnerable.We just got almost ganked by three Hollows.Ergo, there's an increase in Hollow activity, and we don't have time for pissing matches. Just go and save whoever can be saved.
>>33929125I hope so.
We still don't even know what it is he's planning on doing. That and the entire idea is fucking stupid."I proved I'm better then you, so now you'll never come back here." That's not how shit works.
>>33929125How is it metagaming if people vote for an option cosgrove gave us? It's not like they all voted for some convoluted write in option
>>33929161>roll d100With my luck? Nope.
>>33928996I picked it because we should be protecting the town. Not fighting in it. Whatever he wants to do (IC, I assumed some kind of duel or a contest of powers) he wants to do it in a park in the middle of town. Bad choice
Rolled 31>>33929161>>33929125it's what I did in my quest
>>33928996Context clues, such as:1. Extremely dangerous and heightened level of Hollow activity2. Rukia's reaction to the pog in Ishida's hand3. Ishida wanting some kind of competition between humans and shinigami, one that proves that humans are better at protecting the living than shinigami.3a. what is the one action that quincy, shinigami, and spiritually-aware humans do to protect the living? Answer: kill hollows.3b. since killing hollows is the basis for the shinigami's presence, to prove that we're better than them, then being better at killing hollows would be the answer.
>>33929177>>33929180>>33929181Bleach quest really is back.
>>33929180>>33929181>>33929193Well we weren't using that arm anyway.
So when this inevitably goes pear-shaped, and all of those Hollows start attacking innocent people, do we break Ishida's face, or break his fingers so he can't sew anymore?
>>33929125Why would he have to do that? He just has to throw us in combat whenever we start metagaming and watch the dice kill us off.
>>33929206nah. It's back the first time we roll a trip 100
>>33929225We have only ourselves to blaim
>>33929225snap his index fingers off and put them through his eyes. Can't see, can't sew, and can't shoot a bow
>>33929161Even if it won't count, I'll probably try.
>>33929206Thats really never a good thing
>>33929246How?We probably voted for him to not do it, mostly because whatever he was doing seemed kind of crazy and unlikely to get results.
>>33929178Right, and that's why I'm just puzzled and frustrated instead of angry.
Rolled 62>>33929254Well, shit, that was a failure.
While we're talking about picking up subtle hints and context clues, I'd like to point out that we just explicitly compared the dude who watched his grandfather die because of Shinigami to those same Shinigami by saying he was being as bad as or worse than them. If we've just made an enemy, it's entirely our fault for being completely tactless.
>>33929177>>33929180>>33929181Damn, now Ichigo has to figure out who he hates more. The Shinigami for doing nothing or showing up late whenever there's trouble; or Uryu, for being a stupider fuck than strawberry could comprehend before they met
Am I the only one that's wondering where the "the hell are you talking about?" option is? All we know is this guy is holding up some disc and talking about a contest.
>>33929334In retrospect, that is massively in character for Ichigo and I probably should have picked option 3
>>33929334When said guy tries to prove he's better than the people who let his grandfather die, by putting even more people in danger of dying, I think that's the kind of stupidity we WANT in an enemy.
>>33929346>o has to figure out who he hates more. The
>failureYou look over at the shinigami girl and shake your head. You aren’t going to team up and attack her. Then you’d be no better than- no you’d be worse than them. There’s an indignant fire in your stomach, but you’re not a cold-blooded murderer- you’ve dealt with too many spirits- given peace to too many. And there’s hollows out there.“Look, Ishida… I don’t think I can agree with this. I don’t know what you’re suggesting but it sounds dangerous- especially a time like this! The shinigami are wrong- they’re incompetent, corrupt thugs that tell the living what to do… but that’s why we need to be better than them. Ishida- there’s hollows out here, right now and people could be in danger!”The Shinigami girl gives you a considering look, but you ignore her. He nods his head. “I know, Kurosaki. But that’s why I have to do this. Your words are nice, but like my grandfather they’ll do nothing but lead you to your death. So, if for your sake- that a person like you doesn’t end up like him… I HAVE to do this!”Snapping the pog-thing in his hand, you feel the atmosphere change- becoming dangerous as it scatters. You feel your stomach drop as Ishida forms a bow- as above dozens of hollows begin appearing. Horror is equally matched between you and the shinigami.“Ishida… what have you done?!”As the hollows descend upon Karakura, he gives you a grim and resigned smile.“I did only what was necessary, Kurosaki. You need to learn that words mean nothing in this world. Only actions. You want to protect the people of Karakura- protect your family?”He spreads his arms, bow in one hand, as you can feel more hollows appear- the Shinigami has drawn her sword, and is furiously advancing at Ishida.“Then do it. There’s no time left for talking.”>Bleach Quest: REDUX>Chapter Four: I really dig those Quincy Blues>END>To be continued
>>33929526>EndFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUCKIt's gunna be a long week waiting for the next session.
>>33929526THIS IS WHAT YOU GET WHEN YOU META GAME LIKE A BITCH.
>>33929526Uryu, you stupid fuck.
>>33929526So, again, how FUCKING MAD should Ichigo be, now that Ishida has undeniably put not just a whole lot of innocent people in dangers, not just his friends, but also his little sisters, and most importantly, his CRIPPLED MOTHER WHO CAN'T RUN?
>>33929574the same thing that would have happened if we'd agreed to the competition? All that changed is how these two characters see us, and how Ichigo sees them
>>33929526>tfw metagamers get their just dessertsDo we keep Rukia from killing Uryu so we can maximize the number of people killing Hollows now, or do we leave them to it and run to protect the people that we, specifically, actually give a fuck about (ie. family and friends)?
>>33929526You know I'm actually ok with this. At least Ichigo does nit seem like an idiot for blinding accepting Uryu's contest and actually makes him look like the reasonable guy. Rukia might also understand Ichigo better because of what he said. Also when we can lets stop Rukia from attacking Uryu and convince that we need all the help we can to kill all the hollows.
>>33929574All roads led to the Hollow Bait being used.How is this result any different from us agreeing to the competition?
>Rukia about to murder Ishida>Ishida awakening hell on earth to teach everyone a lesson>"We've both heard enough speeches about higher causes by now..."
>>33929574More like it's what we get for rolling low like a bitch.Balanced out that #1 earlier though.
>>33929595on a scale of 1 to 10? Guts when he sees Casca get raped
>>33929572In before somehow we manage to fucking bring a Vasto Lorde here.
Cosgrove! How much EXP do we have to spend, and what's your schedule for these things?
>>33929574How is this a result of metagaming? Uryuu did the same thing in canon.
>>33929574>>33929604...How the fuck would not metagaming, that is, going "sure, Ishida, sounds like fun."NOT result in him detonating the Hollow Bait, which would result in us going "I've made a huge mistake."
>>33929604simple. we say "murder Uryu later, save town now" and get to the killing. A better question is "will we unlock shinigami or quincy powers when the Gillian shows up?"
>>33929640I say we beat him, drag him around to all of the ghosts and spiritually-aware people that survive, and make him get on his knees and apologize for what he did.
>>33929654Mah nigga this is bleach quest. It's the /TG/ version of Dark souls.
>>33929645Honestly, given that the only known Vasto that isn't already Arrancarised by this point in Canon is Harribel, I'd be okay with that.Hell, she'd probably help out.
>>33929645that could be ok. We could meet Harribel, or Starrk. On the other hand, we could summon Barragan
>>33929595>Ichigo's face when Uryu tells him about the Shinigami's pogrom against the Quincy.>Ichigo's face when he finds out that his mother is a Quincy.>Ichigo's face when he kills Rukia in cold blood and feels no remorse whatsoever.
Guys, we just failed to convince him with our roll so he pulled a "words are meaningless" card like he's opt to do and did something he knows isn't right to show us that only actions matter.And also Rukia seems to finally be pushed over the edge and is ready to murder him. That will not end well for her.
>Quincies are fucked up> Shinigami are fucked up> Hollows are fucked up> Hello improvaizen!We will be in Ghost Mexico chillin with Aizen and gin by the end of the month at this rate.
>>33929695>>33929698>Uryu summons Harribel, Sung-sun, Mila Rose, and Apacci>all is forgiven
>>33929604We put our foot down and yell at Uryu to mitigate the effect of the Hollow bait, if he can.Otherwise, kill any Hollows close to the proximity of the bait.Rukia can go to Don Kanonji, since we don't give enough of a fuck to directly help him, yet don't want him dying while there's still people gathered around him.We personally head for either our family, friends, or whoever else left that has a significant spiritual prescence.
>>33929632What lesson?His and our grievance appears to be>shinigami aren't good enough at killing monster ghostshis plan amounts to>summon a shitload of monster ghostsWhich won't be taken down by the shinigami, because, as has already been established, they're bad at it. He's not proving anything.
>>33929720"Shinigami are shit. Quincy are shit. Hollows are shit. Everyone and everything is shit.""OH HEY you know what else is shit kiddo?""What's that?""Whiny teenagers. Go, I don't know, play hoop stick or whatever living people your age go. Christ."
>>33929716>not end well for herShe's at full power now, and the situation might be serious enough to warrant her death wish no longer holding her back.Ishida, in his current state, is fucked.
>>33929738Our grievance is, and his appears to be>shinigami don't take killing monster ghosts seriously and people fucking die because of thisHis grievance is, in actuality>shinigami don't take killing monster ghosts seriously and people fucking die because of this, AND ALSO the Shinigami are Sunni to my family's KurdsHis plan is sort of shit though, yeah.
>>33929720ProbablyNot sure who'll wind up going with us. Chad and Orihime,for sure. Whichever of the two fuckups here lives will probably become our bro, so they can come. bring Mizuiro, but not Keigo. Chizuru's cool so she can come. Anyone else, besides the family?
>>33929712Yeah, but, Ishida is also the one who just put Ichigo's entire family in danger, as well as all of his friends. You don't think that's deserving of at least a broken nose, a dislocated shoulder, and a pair of cracked ribs?
>>33929712...That really doesn't follow. Especially because it'd be hard to see how he could find out that Masaki was a Quincy without also finding out that the Quincy were assholes and the one who took her powers away and left her in a wheelchair was her own king.
I just had a horrifying thought, what if this encounter somehow awakens the latent Shinigami/Quincy Traits in Ichigo's Sisters?
>>33929712>implying we'd listen to Uryu after this stunt he just pulled>implying Ichigo would kill Rukia for it, as opposed to just going for the biggest shinigami he can find and attacking them
>>33929788If the Quincy are Kurds to the Sunni of the Shinigami, then who are the Shia?
>>33929526>I DON'T KNOW WHAT'S HAPPENING BUT I DON'T WANT NO TROUBLE
>>33929844>ShiaHollows?I mean, both Quincies and Shinigami fight Hollows, and Hollows fight Quincies and Shinigami.
>>33929526...that actually went a lot better than I was expecting.Now we just have to kill a shitload of hollows before anyone dies. Shouldn't even be all that difficult - they'll likely be coming right at us.Which, given our powers, means we just got tickets to our own personal buffet....I am okay with this.
>>33929802Oh, no, he's pretty justified in being very mad at Ishidia an forming a very negative opinion of him. I'm just saying that once that particular bomb drops there will be no redeeming the Quincy in his eyes.>>33929803There's a question that we really, really, REALLY need to ask once we know enough to know to ask it:What in the fuck does it even MEAN for a soul to be destroyed? How does this even begin to make sense? Is the world not a closed system? Is it possible for spirit-energy or whatever to actually cease to exist? Is it inversely possible for it to just come into being? What does it fucking mean for the number of souls in the world and the afterlife to be out of balance? There are more people alive today than ever before in the history of the world: If the afterlife could run out of souls, wouldn't normal, mundane population growth eventually do the whole fucking thing in on its own? Do the shinigami have some kind of plan to cap the human population at 10 billion or whatever? This shit is inconsistent and it smells like being lied to.
and now cosgrove is writing something...listen to music anyone?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jMZ4SqjdlJo&list=WL&index=45
>>33929922*No redeeming the Shinigami in his eyes, fuck.
>>33929805honestly that would be slightly hilarious, especially if after all of that people still can't figure out what the shit is with ichigo and his powers.also i'd really feel way bad about ichigo's parents, neither of them are ANYWHERE near full power right now because 1 is a cripple and the other one is completely spiritually locked up right this second.this is gonna be way bad guys.
>>33929939What? No he's not. He's done for the night unless he's in irc saying stuff.
>>33929939https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FgRAF4sC2pg This music is appropriate >>33929959Is it bad that I sorta picture Karin having something like Sol Badguy's weapon for an Zanpakuto?
>>33929993i just assume one of them gets a scalpel and the other one gets a bow, especially since i forget half the time which is which.
>>33929959You don't need to be able to stand to use a bow. Just sayin'.
>>33930009Yuzu's the sweet one, Karin's the Bleach equivalent of an atheist in DnD.
>>33930020yeah but even still spiitually she is weakened as shit so if say a menos showed up over there the lot of them are completely fucked.
If only there was some sort of powerful entity in the area who could easily deal with this mess should it get out of hand.
>>33929922Yeah. Someone is lying. Both the Quincy and the Shinigami were wrong, things killed by Quincy aren't exterminated, they're eaten by Yhwach.That's why Soken's plan wouldn't work, and why the population of Quincy has to be culled.Every Hollow killed by a Quincy brings the Sealed King one step closer to freedom.
>>33929993NORG you're a fucking shit but sometimes you show promise.I want this to happen but I have to ask? Fireseal or Bullet Heaven?
>>33930020You need Quincy powers though.She lost hers, because Yhwach took them.That's... really why Grand Fisher was ever a problem.
>>33930088reminder hat and clogs is a complete assclown in canon and in this quest he already stole a kidney because he is that much of a dick.
>>33930122technically couldn't she fullbring because lolhollow shenanigans?just a random idea.
>>33930122Then why isn't she dead? That's supposed to be fatal, isn't it?
>>33930127And you don't think he wouldn't show up to oneshot everything and chokeslam all three of us into submission?
>>33930151Quincy are allergic to hollow energy though. I'm not sure if Yhwach stealing her powers would change that.
>>33930157naw, i legit think he would blame us for everything and leave the country while this mess is going on, just because he can.
>>33930157He doesn't want Soul Society to know where he is, so he can't do that in front of Rukia if he doesn't also plan to kill/imprison her.
>>33930156I think it's because Uryu's mom was already pretty frail and sickly to start with, and Yhwach finished the job.And, I'm pretty sure that it still put Masaki into a coma for like ten years, Grand Fisher had nothing to do with that.
>>33930184That whole thing never made sense because Rukia went right to him for her gigai in canon and all her spiritual wares so it's safe to assume they know about him, well enough that he's the go-to guy for spiritual gear.
>>33930215to be fair, she legit saved our ass when we were young because lolgrandfisher even if she got crippled for it so i don't think so.
>>33930237The end of chapter sketch implies he approached her
>>33930237That is a good point.Plus unlike Isshin, Urahara hasn't changed his appearance at all AND has been here for a hundred years.
>>33930217Combustion Moon: A Kodachi Length Zanpakuto of the Fire/Ash type. The Tsuba is Black and Gold while the Saya is Red with black clawmarks all over it.Release Command: Explode!
so what are the odds Cosgrove drops this and goes back to PPQ when he feels he's back up to snuff?>>33930237... huh.>>33930276but wouldn't she be able to put two and two together? I mean who else has access to gigais and all of that stuff? And if my memory's right he said he even special ordered some things from Soul Society
>>33930369i love the concept of even though he left soul society, he had friends there who knew this whole thing was a crock of shit, so they stayed behind to cover his ass.i also assume that the 2 covering his ass were Shunsui and Captain TB.
>>33922887Ok guys I'm going to sleep so please Cosgrove or anyone listening support this power under or utility for next time. And also lets try not to get anymore powers in order to see how far we can get in fullbring. I rather try to get full mastery in it. Or if anything become a devil hunter XD.
>>33930465Not using the superior looking Devil Trigger the fuck is wrong with you nigga?
>>33930465/tg/chan plz just go.
>>33929917You are very optimistic. Are you sure 4chan's the place for you?
>Rukia kills Ishida>BREAKING NEWS: Young teen found brutally slain at gravesite. Horrible orange haired man child spotted fleeing the scene.>More on this story as it develops. In other news, a mysterious wave of wonton destruction is sweeping the downtown area.
>>33929917Best case scenario is we get shinigami and quincy powers, fuckload of EXP to powerlevel. Worst case scenario? Somehow someway A bit of ghost mexico and the real world merge.
>>33930694>Go to Soul Society>See Ishida>Go into his hovel; papers and photos like the walls, he frantically roots through books. Diaries where he's written down his memories. He looks at us, panic in his eyes; "I... think I remember you? were we friends? Was I alive? Who am I?"
Welp time for bed. Thanks for the thread Cosgrove; fingers crossed it'll run again later this week.The rest of you: Please don't forget to keep the archive up to date and upvote the quest.
After this I think Ichigo is going to have a tough time getting along with anyone else who has powers. Inherently specious and assming the worst of them at best.
