I didn't know...but now i do and i gotta say i liked this quite a bit. Although...Isshin might kill him...lol. This was good.

Why isn't there more?! And that cliffhanger! I want to see more scenes like this! T_T

Ok first I must say: WHY IS THERE NOT MORE OF THIS?!
Second, this is amazing. Very well written just like the rest of your work. One thing I must say though, is that like the rest of your work is so beautifully full of detail. Though I should point out, Shunsui actual tanner than Ichi, and Shunsui doesn't wear tabi/socks.
I love how you write though. While it's hard for me to read it sometime and I have to reread because of all of the detail this is amazing. It starts off with the feels and gradually move into make you smile. I wish I could write like you. Please keep up the good work! *u*
And just one little question... Why do you use some japanese when they speak. I can understand the clothing issue, but when they talk, why do you use it? I'm just curious that's all.

This is a lovely story. I had never considered the pair before today and finding a story so well written is fantastic.
I'm a bit sad that it is so short though. Oh, well you can have everything ;P
When it comes to your sex-scene I feel the wording is a bit repetitive, but I like how you've handled the sex toys.
I loved it.

Love this story, will there be a sequel? Coz u did an awesome job of portraying Ichi's depression and just loved Shunsui's interaction with the broken boy that was the savior they had forgotten xxx :)

Would love to see more of this pairing, or even a continuation! This is my OTP... and no one writes it! And im a reader, not much of a writer... so that's out.

I... just found a new OTP P thanks Cho!
| qqsha chapter 1 . 5/5/2014
I adore this rare pairing and I like how you write them both (and together!). The way you ended seems very open to me and makes me want to see what kind of toys Shunsui would bring!

Wow! That was kind blowing. Just, wow!
I've read several of your works, each with a different pairing (all including Ichigo, of course), and this pairing, by far, was my favorite. You did an absolute amazing job with this story! Very well written! *applause and thumbs up*
The way you conveyed the characters' feelings was amazing. Definitely was able to connect with the characters and their struggle, and their long overdue relief. I was so happy to see a happy ending; couldn't stand to poor Ichigo suffering any longer.
I'm sad that this pair isn't popular (you got me addicted), so I'm going to have to place my hope in you will do another story with these two guys.
Really great work. You definitely have got a lot of skills in writing. Keep up the great work!

“Wake Me From This Daze” is far from just a gratuitous piece of Yaoi erotica. You used this brief one-shot to delve much deeper than expected, exploring the internal turmoil of Ichigo after having lost his powers in the Winter War.
Your detail, as always, is heady. You weave a thick, viscous world of sensational lyrics with your writing, causing such deep identification with not only Ichigo’s pain, but also his profound solitude, and need for comfort.
The events of “Wake Me From This Daze” are entirely plausible, and that Shunsui has been visiting and comforting Ichigo for some time already adds credibility to him showing up on the doorstep, looking for more. The setting of Isshin and Ichigo’s sisters being out of town was convenient, but believable; clearly necessary for our emotionally tight-laced Ichigo to have been able to allow himself to release his self-conscious shyness. The sensuality is a priority here, and Shunshi as your Seme is a perfect catalyst to Ichigo’s Uke in this story. A little bit of sake to loosen tongues (and subsequently inhibitions), was just the right touch.
The dialogue was natural, flowing and meaningful; it did not feel forced or contrived at any time, as I have seen in the writing of some other authors when working Lemons. Even Ichigo’s inadvertent confession to Shunsui seemed prompted only in part by the liquor, but truly more by his painful desire to feel connection again.
Their personalities seemed true; Shunsui’s easy, lazy, teasing demeanor; Ichigo’s initial nervousness at admitting his own desires, but ultimately giving in to his more powerful need at the willing, guiding hand of this captain. The characters you chose to tell this story could not have been more perfectly selected. The once fiery, angry personality of Ichigo, reduced by his sorrow to a smoldering ember of regret, so easily fanned into flames of desire by the strong and tender Shunsui. His languid, hedonistic nature lends itself so readily to the story of “Wake Me From This Daze,” that I am surprised I never put more thought into this pairing before now.
Overall, this story was exceedingly very well done for a one shot, though I’ve come to expect this degree of quality from you. “Wake Me From This Daze” does not disappoint. It was a gentle tale of turmoil and resolution; Ichigo lost in helpless anguish, and Shunsui coming to help guide him out of that place of darkness within his soul, with a loving, sake-flavored touch. I look eagerly forward to my next opportunity to trespass into one of the many vivid worlds of your creations.
Thank you as always, Chocolate, for sharing your talent with us.

Shun is such a bad egg! :D Can't help but love this pairing. However, Uki and Ichi are perhaps even better. Or Ichi and Kisuke... What the heck has Bleach done to me?! XD

I'm glad to see more ShunsuixIchigo on this site. It's desperately been needed.
| Apricot09 chapter 1 . 9/18/2013
This was so good! I liked that you wrote Ichigo with him having a hard time accepting his loss of power. The manga defiantly skipped over that. I also LOVED the shun/Ichi :3 please write more with this pairing!
