This is amazing and so well crafted! Everything just fits together into the perfect plot, with all the right twists that leave me on the edge of my proverbial seat. I just love your characterization and the bonds you've formed- especially those between the teens, and display between the characters!
Thank you for the super lovely piece of work!

Well, that was shorter than I expected, in terms of things happening. Umm... On to the next one, I guess. Hopefully the kid remembers Ichigo's name long enough to ask about him when he gets to Soul Society; souls usually forget almost everything from their previous life when they get sent on.

Okay, I was partly right about the pic.
As a reader I like that the defendants are calling the 46 on their bullshit, even if their arguments are kind of basic and it seems somewhat unrealistic that they'd let anyone speak out so much (except maybe Ichigo, if they're so afraid of him). However, Ichigo has no reason (and I would think no desire) to subjugate himself to Soul Society and be bound by their laws. This is doubly true for the full-humans and triply true for Ishida. Ichigo may secretly want a limiter, okay, but I see no reason for them to be so acquiescent like they are.

It seems pretty obvious to me: he merged with his Hollow. From the start it was either that or he'd developed a split-personality, and after the "flashback" it could only be a merge. Also, (and I just thought of this) I'm guessing it's still incomplete and when they totally merge 50-50 he'll look like the profile pic for this fic? You said the Getsuga was more-blue-than-purple, after all.

Oh geez, the Central 46 again. I guess it could be for a positive reason, but then where's the conflict?
Although from the narrator I appreciate this level of sophisticated prose, I think it's pretty OoC for Ichigo to talk like that. Also, it might be different after he's been in a prolonged military situation with them, but Ichigo doesn't usually refer to the Captains and Vice-Captains by their titles. He uses -san for Unohana, Kyouraku, Komamura, and Ukitake (and Matsumoto, Hisagi, and anyone else he is merely acquainted with) and calls Byakuya, Toushiro, and Kenpachi by their first names. He calls Yamamoto jii-san, I believe, and I don't know what he would call Soi Fon or Kurotsuchi but I believe it would be those names with or without -san. Again, though, that could have been changed with a military situation if Ichigo decided to follow military protocols, though I doubt it.

Please, please, please don't put A/Ns in the middle of a chapter, especially not ones as otherwise well-written as these are so far. If you feel the need to defend yourself (which I don't think you needed to do), do it at the end of the chapter instead of breaking up the great atmosphere you've built.

Wow, I totally loved reading it. Actually I started with its sequel and it got me curious enough to read it.

Great story. Really amazing.

this need to continue. What has Ichigo's slowly growing and leaking reiatsu done to the world when even the little bit required to see ghosts affected his close friends.

This is harsh, seeing as life slips through your fingers and everything you love blows away on the wind while you remain. It's a cruel punishment indeed. I'd say I wish the soul society had to ask for Ichigo's help and would be rebuffed, but anything that affects the afterlife that much would also have ripples in the living world.

Poor Ichigo... :(

LOVED your story. I am ashamed that I haven't read it sooner.

| raae chapter 11 . 1/14/2011
