I read this a long time ago, just when I was first getting into Bleach, and it's still one of the best Bleach stories this site has to offer. It hits so many notes and does so much in so little time with both canon and original characters.
Job ridiculously well done

I think I am literally at a loss of words, lol. This is a masterful retelling of what could have happened in that genocide event. Everything links together so beautifully even the small instances where Kubo hasn't revealed yet - why Shunsui wears the pink kimono, Urahara's bankai and it's nature - even the prelude to Soi Fong joining Yoruichi...Loved the writing, I couldn't find myself looking away and the words just blended together quicksilver smooth in that tense imagery. You've got Yoruichi and Urahara's, and Kyoraku and Shunsui's relationships depicted amazingly spot on. All in all, beautifully crafted work, the Quincy's downfall was a tragedy and you have portrayed it in no words I can find to describe.

The angst. It feeds us. Well, some of us and hopefully not too often. I feel pretty full here myself. Thanks!

This is incredible. So powerful and moving... beautifully dark and just heart breaking.
I believe that you perfectly captured the regret and grim reality that accompanied the characters before, during and after the slaughter. This was amazing. Honestly the best Bleach fanfiction I've read to date.
Thank you for this.

Authors like you will never satiate your readers with enough works, because each and every story you write is so superb that we all want more. I am every bit a greedy, selfish person that wishes you had far more works for me to read.
The portrayal of the captains and their mindsets toward committing genocide was amazingly well done. None of them wanted to fight. They knew they had to, which killed them on the inside. Just because a decision has an obvious choice doesn't mean it's an easy choice to commit to, which you described in detail.
I'm a sad person right now. No more new stories to read. Sigh.

A sad story.

Amazing, simply amazing. This was written incredibly well and I thank you for writing such a great story. Although I believe that the sad mood you put me in will linger a while.

You're writing gave depth to a scene that I could never have imagined.
Characterization was brilliant and I love how you even included in a Quincy's POV.
Absolutely beautiful. Thanks for writing!

Wow. It's so long and amazing. Flows well, too. I love it!
| Blafor chapter 1 . 10/17/2008
Wow, this was just heart wrenching. It was awesome but I felt like crying through out the whole thing. It felt dark and depressing.
I have to say that the parts with the Shinigami sending the Quincy's ghosts on, the part with the Quincy boy and Unohana and the ending all were really moving scenes.
So I must say that I'm really glad I found this and Job Well Done!

A very good interpretation of the Quincy's Last Stand. I really like the way you keep switching views and you made the POVs so in character too. I love it all around!

Awesome one shot. I loved how it covered so many perspectives and your ideas for Benihime were really entertaining.

Dear gods, that was deep. Thank you.
