It's the end of an era. They're my first and second manga series that I've read and kept up to date with that are now FINISHING. (FMA doesn't count, really, as I'm about 15 chapters behind currently and probably won't catch up until it's finished.)
I may possibly be more broken up about the fact they're finishing than say, Yuuko and Watanuki's decision.
Also, this week's Bleach? Those wolves look AWESOME.
And Starrk is breaking my heart with that gorgeous face of his. Yay for begining to like a character just as he gets stabbed!
ETA: Watanuki's glare-y face? The hottest thing ever. Even more so than that semi-stoned colour picture. (Which, now, looking back on it, seems really relevant to current circumstances...)
Character/Pairing: Ichigo, Tatsuki, Orihime (hinted IshiHime)
Spoilers/Warnings: Inappropriate humour?
Theme/prompt: 9 - fuzzy circumstance
Author's Notes: I tried to do 31 themes of my own last year, but I failed spetacularly. Short, because any longer would've ruined it
( Admittedly, he had been rather rushed... )
I've decided to not bother with segregating Soul Society and the non-Tokyo CLAMP and just mush them all into one huge orgy/crossover.
So all shinigami are in. I'm not sure how the arrancar will fair. (They'll probably be included too, just I have no idea how.)
Some basic concepts have been altered to fit the shinigami in. Throughout CLAMP there have been people able to see spirits. Therefore all people in Bleach who can/are spirits are lumped in this category. Only the captains will be able to exorcise spirits. (And this will usually be done by talking to them. See Byakuya's plot below.)
Some of the Bleach characters will be in some sort of organisation which keeps track of these people who can see/take care of spirits. (Kakei and Saiga will have links to them, somehow)
The Quincies are like Doumeki and can disipate bad spirits by concentrating energy.
CLAMP powers remain mostly unchanged.
Help needed to get these plots in line and names right. Also, additions welcomed. (Can't remember all of them!)
Character/Pairing: Ichigo/Orihime, Ichigo/Rukia
Genre: Sentimental (possibly General, possibly romance)
Spoilers/Warnings: IchiOri? Dead/mysteriously disappeared Rukia?
Author's Notes: I wrote an IchiHime. I know. The world must be imploding slowly. I need to go finish some nice fluffy kids!IshiHime. This writing makes me angsty.
Oh gods, I missed the "Must. Save. Friends." Ichigo.
I also have to admit I got a kick out of seeing Ulquiorra step into the space of Aizen's chair. Not because he's out of the sugar cube of doom, but because it's symbolic or something.
Yeah, something like that.
(Oh gods, I've been staring at DVD covers for too long)
In this case, I feel like bleach and not Tsubasa (which is one of my current DLs) nor Spice and Wolf or Zombie Loan (the Spice and Wolf OST also being DLed).
I'm way back on 149.
Title: -final battle-
Character/Pairing: General (implied IchiRuki, IshiHime)
Rating: PG-13 (for the kiddies who don't like that kind of thing)
Genre: General, Action
Spoilers/Warnings: Descriptions of fictional violence, including death and grave injury
Wordcount: ~ 170
Author's Notes: M' lovely beta was shadowsinfire this time around.
This little drabble was actually born out of the need of a battle scene in one of my IshiHime fic entries. However, I didn't like the feel of it amongst the rest of the paragraphs; so it was cut out. It did stand well on its own though, so I kept it and fleshed it out and added
If you are having trouble grasping meaning from this formatting, please try reading each middle dot as a comma or fullstop.
Character/Pairing: Ishida Uryuu/Inoue Orihime, cameos by Ichigo and Tatsuki
Genre: General, Light, Fluff
Author's Notes: Written for _debbiechan_'s IshiHime fic contest. It may be a indicator of my state of mind that I can only write fics that are divided up into portions, as I'm rather fragmented due to intense editing of journalistic articles.
( Seven days and beyond of IshiHime )
Character/Pairing: Ishida Uryuu/Inoue Orihime, Rukia cameo
Author's Notes: For _debbiechan_'s IshiHime fic contest. Not quite happy with the ending but guh, I have a headache and my coding has stuffed up once already.
( In the beginning, he had searched frantically... )
Character/Pairing: Ishida Uryuu/Inoue Orihime
Genre: Lime candy? (Not very limey and kind of fluffy)
Dedication: To hair fetish!
Author's Notes: Again, written for _debbiechan_'s IshiHime contest. Also written to satiate my want for writing damp hair scenes.
( snip snip )
Character/Pairing: Ishida Ryuuken, Ishida Uryuu/Inoue Orihime
Spoilers: Chapter 241, episode 143

Author's Notes: Written for _debbiechan_'s IshiHime fic contest
( He had never intended on reading it )
Title: -homeside part B-
Character/Pairing: Ishida Ryuuken, Kurosaki Isshin, Ishida Uryuu/Inoue Orihime
Spoilers/Warnings: Chapter 241, episode 143/ sexual suggestions
Author's Notes: Written as a continuation of 'Predictable', this was supposed to be highlighting the fact that Uryuu's getting some while his father ISN'T and is damn well getting annoyed because he knows/feels what his son is getting up to.

And I'm just wondering if it's all just a handy Aizen illusion to get the rescue team's hopes up. I think he used Kyoka Suigetsu up on the hill... Thus revealing it all to that were up there. AND he'd've probably revealed it to Nell and Pesh and Dondo too, so there's no escape!
And I have to say, upon reading the chapter, it seems rather devoid of brilliance on Kubo's part. I'm disappointed because it''s rather dry and not brilliant.
I do like the fact we learn who's seventh and Noitra's full name.
My statement on it all must be an illusion still stands.
Title: GesundheitSeries: Bleach
Character/Pairing: Ichigo, Rukia
Author's Notes: I know that usually (or at least in the Shinigami Cups) sneezing in Bleach is used as a "hey, someone is talking about you", kind of like how your ears are supposed to burn.
However, there is another superstition dating from the Plague that if you sneezed particularly strongly that your soul would be expelled from your body. (Previous to that, it was actually good luck to sneeze, as it was believed to dispel evil spirits from your body.) A superstitions website
Kind of obvious, but I wrote this soon after sneezing partiularly violently.
( Bless you! )
