The bit at the end which brings to mind Grimm's mask is clever:)

This is an amazing and completely believable backstory for Grimm. You have a real talent for making the scenes come to life, I could practically hear the gunfire and Grimmjow's maniacal laughter as I was reading. This is a great piece, and I really enjoyed reading it. I also really liked the line 'killers simplified are really just control freaks with a taste for carnage'. I've always been a bit fascinated by criminal psychology, and there are so many different complicated theories and philosophies just to answer the simple question: why? This line really suited the tone of the story well. It's a perfect Grimmjow-type thought, and reflects the fact that all along, he was just following his predator's instincts. Grimmjow is one of my favorite characters, and I think you've got him portrayed incredibly well here. This is the only backstory-type piece I've ever read for any of the Espada (I don't think there's many out there) but Grimmjow is wonderfully in character, and everything seemed very realistic and three dimensional. Great job!

I absolutely loved this story, I like how you kept Grimmjow in character! I would really like to see a sequel that is basically a prequel of Grimmjow's first squad that he killed, and since you like Yaoi that could be thrown into there as well if you like. This was really well written and I'd love to see more of this type!

:O whoa. when i was reading this, i thought "this reminds me so much of The Things They Carried" and now i know it's because it's based off of it. you've totally captured tim o'brien's voice! that book was mind-bottling, how everything seemed real but it really wasn't even though it was the "truth".

i find this piece reminiscent of the sweetheart of the song... something something. the girl was definitely sane and normal at first, which grimmjow isn't, but i find that the way she ends up is like the way grimmjow's story starts.

Beautiful, Love. Absolutely beautiful.

When I'm stressed the bloody-mother-of-baby-Jesus-fucking-hell out, I always come across some gorey 'fic and it cheers me up just a tad. Does that make me crazy? I think it's just a nice, mind-consuming distraction from my stress.

It was all...amazing. Amazing, fantastic, inspiring, exciting, eloquent, intriguing, interesting, fascinating, obscenely beautiful.. You get the picture.

The dream he had was so vivid. Hell, the whole thing was vivid, alive, *real*. I did notice in the beginning you used more parentheses than you usually do. Mildly distracting, so don't over-do that TOO much. That's probably the only advice I can give, though..

You truly do wax eloquence. Just wow. Was the russet-haired man anyone we Bleach fans know? Or just another mouse in a world of rodents and Grimmjow?

Hmm. I suppose I must return to my world of stressful blah now. Thank you for taking me from it, if even for a few minutes, in such a pleasurable manner. Write more "serious" stuff - please?

Best,

Duuuude! That was fucking epic~ I swear that I got a lady boner when Grimmjow went all psychotic on those retards..lol. Hilarious how he shredded that one dude for praying while he was trying to sleep; morally wrong, but funny, nontheless. xDDD I could definitely imagine this being his life as a human...

Stay Awesomesauce~

This was really good, very different from what you usually write but it turned out great! It's good to hear that you are thinking of expanding the genres you write about. Good Luck in the contest!

Cake~! Oh! My! God! That was effing epic! Holy fudge, I was on the edge of my seat the whole time I was reading! I love this story!

It fits Grimmjow so perfectly to be involved with war in some way! I hope you win, Caribou!

BUT! There is one thing bugging me a little. The person praying with the russet hair. Who was he? Or was he something random you made up for the story?
