Oh, wow. This was so many things. Chilling, poignant, noble-very much the essence of tragedy surrounding the quincy legacy. The way you wrote the characters was amazing, from Souken's dignity in the face of inhumanity, to Mayuri's madly clinical view of the world, to Ryuuken's cold rationality. The way you melded the horror of what Souken experienced with the aftermath his death left his family-just, heartbreaking. Thanks for writing this!

Thank you.. Really, I have read none better about the Quincy.. their Legacy and their supposed last. _
I don't need to say that I loved this.. or that i'm in awe of the characters, Mayuri, Souken, Ryuken, Ishida, even Nemu.. or even the strength of the introspection and the mood and the tempering and the little details that add voice to the prose. But I will anyway. Hehe.. I do however need to cut off my babble now, i've prolly already bored u.
I'll look forward to more such pieces and uh, amazing amazing work.

What a wonderful treat to get this story when I just finished a Quincy story of my own, and I've got Quincy all over the brain!
But oh, this was wonderful. I've been impressed by your fantastic ability to write Mayuri since reading "Your Enemy's Name," and this was story was just as good. You capture his tone so well, his temper, the almost naivete of his warped world view. Though naivete is far too innocent a word to use for his sick brand of obliviousness. Reading something that captures him so well... it's engrossing, in the most twisted way.
I loved Souken's dignity. It made what was about to happen to him all the more terrible, but it was so believably portrayed that I couldn't help feeling a sense of peace, even knowing the future, as I spent time in his viewpoint. His thoughts on Uryuu were heartbreaking, and I loved the glimpse into Aizen from his perspective. But most of all I think I loved his immediate, sad insight into Nemu.
And speaking of capturing difficult characters, I think you did a fantastic job with Ryuuken as well. His clinical detachment, the way his mind turns to the immediate potential to "save" his son, all right down the image of him dropping his cigarette into his coffee - great portrayal. And to bring that around 180 to the intense emotional reaction when he finally sees Uryuu having claimed a Quincy identity at last, leaving his father behind concretely... that was wonderfully done.
In short, I loved it. :) But just a quick note - the formatting is missing scene break lines in the last half of the story. (I know; it's a real pain to put this in through formatting.) If possible, I would consider trying to put those in there, because they provide needed emotional beats at transition points, and I find that it takes a bit of mental adjustment to make that shift in what, without them, seems like mid paragraph. This story is too good to be distracted from it by trivial formatting. :)
