06/04/12: So I gotta say it, I changed my pen name because frankly, 'Shortcake' was my Dad's nickname for me... and yeah, OW! Much as I love strawberries (no not Ichigo Kurosaki, he isn't food) I couldn't keep looking at that name. Aka Chuurippu is Japanese for 'Red Tulip' and it's one of my favourite flowers, so that's why I went with this pen name instead. :) To my fans, friends, and followers, I do apologize greatly for the confusion this will cause, please understand I had to do this for my own comfort. Since my Dad raised me as a single parent it is extremely unlikely that this will ever happen again.
22/10/11: Okay so once again, I apologize for the lack of updates. On October 13th, my father passed away. Since I'm the only next of kin, I'm dealing with all of the stuff that has to be done in terms of canceling items, notifying companies, blah blah blah. All of that fun executor of estate stuff. So yeah, anyways that's how things are right now, whenever I get a few minutes somewhere in my day (these days) I'm still writing so please bear with me!!!
My Fav bleach Characters are
1) Yasutora "Chad" Sado -
It's the whole tough guy exterior with the softie interior that gets me with him. Truth be told I think the big reason why he was a jerk in Mexico is because he was hurting over losing his parents and didn't know how to cope with it. With is Abuelo constantly showing him love and kindness while maintaining a constant firm belief in what he taught his grandson, that's likely what helped him pull out of it. If you watch the episodes where his grandfather tells him that he's big, strong, and beautiful, you see a tear run down young Yasutora's cheek. You see this once again when Abuelo takes the beating from the angry fathers, the beating that was meant for Yasutora. Ontop of that, come on, he shielded a bird with his body to prevent an I beam from crushing the bird and the bird's cage! How sweet and big hearted is that? I think when he was a bully in Mexico he was trying to make himself unlovable to prevent himself from getting hurt in the future. I always try to keep him AS IS in my fics, but it's difficult to not have him a slight touch OOC.
2) Ichigo Kurosaki -
Same as Chad. Tough guy with a soft guy side. He'll kick anyone's ass for pissing him off, or harming someone close to him, but he also can't help but comfort little kids when they're scared or they cry. All together now, "Awww!"
3) Rukia Kuchiki -
She's tough, but she also has a softer side to her. She's also a skilled hand to hand fighter, which just rocks!
5) Yoruichi Shihoin -
She's a tough, but fun loving woman. She's nobility but unlike Byakuya Kuchiki she doesn't throw it in your face.
6) Kisuke Urahara –
The guy is sex on legs, come on! He’s unconventional, he seems lazy, he has a laid back attitude, and he’s always joking in someway or another and yet when he’s in combat he becomes quite serious, still joking and making smart-alec remarks to throw his enemy off center. He’s a genius, he’s sweet as candy when Ururu cries over selling Rukia a defective product, like I said, sex on legs! I don’t even care about the sandles and the hat. Though I have to admit it would be nice to see his eyes a bit more often.
Least Favourite Characters:
1) Orihime Inoue - "Kurosaki-kun" "Kurosaki-kun" "Kurosaki-kun" *insert me showing Orihime a baseball bat and telling her if she says one more 'Kurosaki-kun' she'll get the baseball bat upside the head.
2) Rangiku Masumoto - Take every negative stereotype you've ever heard about a girl, Rangiku is the personification. I'm not joking. Shopping when she should be working, getting drunk when she has paper work to do, acting like a brainless self-centered bimbo until someone's visibly upset then diverting all of her attention to that person to cheer them up. C'mon, preps and valley-girls are so last decade. (yes I did throw in the 'so' as a bit of irony)
3) Byakuya Kuchiki - he's a pompous blowhard. Enough said.
Ichiruki - one of the most common ones, and so far I haven't written one yet. One story where it's hinted, but not out right declared.
ChadxOC - these seem to be the easiest for me to write!
Rangin - I mention this in passing in a few stories
UraharaxOC - I'm going to be writing one of these soon.
I AM NOT AGAINST YAOI OR YURI, and sometimes do read those fics, however I am absolutely no good at all when it comes to writing them! So sorry, no Yaoi or Yuri fics from this author... or very little. LOL!!
