Author has written 4 stories for Bleach, Naruto, Sword Art Online/ソードアート・オンライン, and Persona Series.
NARUHINA CONFIRMED: We knew it, Kishi knew it, everybody except the delusional knew it.
Name:SilverFlameHaze of course! oh...real name?...Lann Majra. (Lan-n*Mage-ruh)
Likes: My surrogate family. Ramen(Completely unrelated to Naruto, I was addicted to this stuff before I had a TV). Darkness. Gardens. Silence.
Dislikes: Hypocritical behavior(To a certain extent, as technically everyone has a hypocritical side). Loud unnecessary noises. Unreasonable people. My father.
Hobbies: Hanging out with my surrogate family. Working out. Writing. Criticizing(It's not as bad as it sounds). Reading(Preferably medical books or stories that delve into emotion).
Titles(That I feel like sharing info on):
The God Of None
Reason being: My friend and surrogate sister, Fione, had seen fit to note that I always try to avoid leadership. The second I do get saddled with such a chore I will try to make the best I can out of it. Eventually after all the hard work is done and everything is successful, I hand over the leadership to someone else and give them full credit. She felt poetic that day and made some tale up about how there was a God who created many nations yet left them all to fall in the end for his own amusement. The name stuck with the family, sadly...
Reason being: My surrogate brother, Lance, would always call some of my actions foolish, despite the fact that I still gained something every time I did something foolish. Heck, even I would admit some of these actions were unnecessary, but it was a spur of the moment kind of thing. After continuous actions like these, he came up with a moniker for me to use in gambling rounds for kicks, The Fool. I said it would be amusing and it turns out everybody underestimated me because of that name... Quite amusing indeed. Anyway, shortly after that Alexis would come with me to gambling rounds and her experience was rather strange. She would practically have a 50-50 chance or total scores when it came to the end of our little round. After repeating it and coming with the same result each time, my best friend gave her her own moniker, Fortune, to represent her odds of good fortune or bad fortune. After that, Fione had made some random connection between the two. Strangely, I liked the connection though. She explained that a fool was normally called so because of the person going against what seemed to be fate, or a fairly unlikely win. And the only thing to ever truly beat Fate was Fortune. So, by teaming up with Fortune, the Fool finally beat Fate, proving his title wrong. Hence, Fortune's Fool. As I said, strangely enough, I liked it. I kept it, personally.
The Uniformless Man
Reason being: In a game, due to my connection to a close friend, I was invited to help a group of medium fame. I was substitute in as a high rank for awhile and quickly became a group favorite. Even exposing one of the other high ranks of admin abuse. Later on I would be asked to carry on the title of high rank past my substitution. I gave pity to the leader, and accepted. Later on, during the leaders vacation I would find a rather arrogant person a rank above me. Further on, I would also catch him of treason after kicking me from the group without breaking the rules. And then treason from something else entirely. I was begged to come back to the group, literally. After that, I formed connections with two of the group's close allies. And by close, I mean they were practically brothers. I became rather famous in those two groups as well. One time after pissing off the leader of a group enough that he kicked me, some members actually planned a 'rebellion'... I actually laughed at that. I was later invited to join again, but declined. Continuing my work on the third group I joined yet the one I felt the most loyal to. Yet, in all my time with all those groups, I never once bought or wore their uniforms. And I only once truly considered myself one of them... Hence, this title, given to me by several people in all of the groups who agreed. Lann Majra, does not wear uniforms. Period.
Also, since I figured that people will bug me with reading their stories in the future should I attract attention(The current date of the last time I edited this part was 1/6/13), I believe it is best to tell you stalkers about what stories I read. And by stories, I mean things that are not medical related or instructions.
Okay, let's go with the basic things. I am a picky bastard. A VERY picky bastard. Most of the comments I will make here, are almost required for me to read a story. First off, main character(s) need to have some type of love interest/conflict. The emotional response and output must be realistic yet virtual at the same time. As hard as that is to describe, I think it's best to simply say that 'Love' has no true form. Going through certain events, any person(s) can fall in love. With anyone. As disturbing as this is, it is simple truth. Conflict breeds change, change brings events. Bonds that endure the strongest of events become stronger. And before you type, no I do not ask for 'romance', I ask for a type of 'Love' that is used between lovers. Not even what I call 'True Love', as in my definition True Love is an obsession. Completely illogical, yet predictable at the same time. Now that I have described the first requirement...
I can not get myself into any story if it looks like a fucking terrible play. Best examples are when almost every single fucking line starts with quotation marks for sentences. That annoys me quickly. Details must be at average. Without details your simply summarizing shit, and I don't read summaries, I look for the original source and fucking study it like a hawk with a monocle. So, please do not send me trash.
The basic idea and presentation, must be good. This is the thing that everything else revolves around. There's a reason why my stories have fucking cool descriptions. They draw people in, make them actually want to read it. If not to simply satisfy their curiosity. Curiosity may have killed the cat, dog, and my neighbors. But that is the very reason why it is such good bait. People know this fucking phrase by now and still let their curiosity get the better of them! :D It's like people idolizing Santa, a man who supposedly sneaks into peoples houses to give them flammable/explosive materials! Humans are dumb!
And, targeting fanfiction specifically, I do not read pairings that I do not like. My mind is a screwed up place, and if I have a different opinion or idea of how characters are portrayed influenced strongly, I lose their original meaning. How would you like it if I gave your favorite anime character a side of which he/she does something completely against what you prefer or would have done? Moving on...
Wow, now it's finally down to the points of which I like but are not required... maybe... Okay, I prefer anti-heroes to be honest. Say what you want, but Itachi Uchiha, Lelouch Lamperouge, and Shadow the Hedgehog are fucking awesome. It's just that simple. However, I am not completely opposed to the basic hero. What I absolutely loathe is when people give no other explanation of a character then what I call the 'Basic Hero Virtues'. Example being, Harry Potter. How emotionally in depth is Potter explained?... What characteristics can you give me of him that are NOT in almost every other hero or is classified as a hero type?... Can't think of one? Thought so.
Another thing I like is a dark atmosphere that can liven up with comedic relief but still never allows you to let your guard down. I'm talking standard Me Against The World shit. And I don't mean it kiddy style. I mean when the main character can literally trust no one but his closest friends and he even distances himself from them. It's hard to explain but if I have to reference other fics that draw me to this example I would use... "He Who Fights Monsters" by hawker748, "Angel In the Machine" by The Hollow Man, and "An Empty Life: Hollow Desires" by WhizkidHV. Most notably the first for environment feeling, second for character feeling, and third for character thoughts.
That's all I feel like explaining. I can like other things... It's just that I will most likely find those on my own, I need people to keep an eye out for these special one >:3
Anyway I'm writing four different stories.
To help you understand me, I shall list them in order of priority.
First Priority: Sword Art Online: Guardians of the Heart.
Basic Summary: My friends and I join the story from the US and just generally change entire plot line with our mere presence. Kazuto/Yuuki(Konno).
Second Priority: Naruto: Nothing Stops Me Now.
Basic Summary: Naruto has been abused, beaten, and tortured to the point where he almost breaks. But after gradually taking in all the pain, the muscle only grows stronger. Nothing will stop him now, because nothing has ever stopped him before. Naruto/Hinata.
Third Priority: Persona 4: Against All Odds.
Basic Summary: Souji had been nothing but a political tool to his parents. With almost no parental affection, Souji longs for the day he can escape his predetermined life. He was supposed to be a tool, to make good relations, and to eventually marry a girl of high renown. But Inaba has always shifted fate slightly. Despite the fact that he has no Persona, he will still find the murderer in Inaba, help his cousin get her dad back, and hopefully help his new found friends along the way. All while trying to set his life in Inaba to escape his parents' grasp. Souji/Naoto.
Free Time Priority: Bleach: Infinity: Avalon Squad.
Basic Summary: Kisuke believes an entire squad of unknown potential could shift the war against Aizen. Using his insane intellect, he acquires the means to make such a force. My friends and I join the story as substitutes. Ichigo/Rukia.
I think of some pretty crazy stuff people. Some of the challenges I post here, I am probably waiting until I have time to do it myself. If anyone wants to take up a challenge just message me to inform me about it.
Challenge #1: Pokemon: War Against The World.
Basic Summary: Ash Ketchum was a normal boy who was always joyful. However, trauma changes people. At the young age of seven he was involved in an accident. His mother killed by Pokemon, Ash is left alone. Despite the fact that his father is far away and never comes home, Ash is still technically not an orphan and wishes to remain that way. At age ten, with a justified hatred of Pokemon, Ash will leave the town to escape the memories. But he will not stand down as the objects of his hatred wander near him. This is Ash's journey as he takes up a war against the world. A Pokemon World.
Requirements: Ash must be slightly broody. He is alone for three years and copes with it in silence. During his three years of remaining in Pallet he trains his body to be able to fight Pokemon should the need arise. However, training against trees can only do him so much. So his strength must be kept low still. He will practice with sticks as weapon practice, since he knows that he will need some eventually.
I Owe It To Your Mother: He must also have a strange friendship with Oak. The man will be constantly worried about the boy, since he was a good friend of his mother. And despite their misgivings about eachother they do talk from time to time. Oak tries to keep Ash out of trouble but knows that the boy will get into it regardless.
He Who Declares War: Ash must eventually catch public attention due to his exploits of killing Pokemon. Technically, it is not illegal to kill a Pokemon for food, but he will kill trainer's Pokemon should they try to fight him. The police will all be warned to look out for him and be wary of him. If he does anything illegal, lethal force is permitted due to his level of danger.
Pairings: If you have pairings, they must be HUMAN! Professional suggestion would be May, since she could easily be turned into a Pokemon Hater like Ash is. You may also turn it into a Harem should you want to. Just remember to be reasonable.
Comrades: You can turn Ash into an Anti-Pokemon force Leader, and have him make recruits or comrades. Suggestions would be turning canon characters like Misty or Brock. Although how you do that is up to you.
Random Notes: 1# You CAN have him meet a Lucario who can talk. Despite the fact that it is a Pokemon, Ash may still feel a small sort of respect for the creature for skills, will, or anything really and allow it to follow him. 2# Ash MUST know how to cook, treat wounds and infections, and receive a small payment from his father via mail. Most of said salary goes into the house, which he refuses to sell.
Should you have suggestions, feel free to message me about it.
Challenge #2: Yu-gi-oh GX: Myriad of Darkness
Basic Summary: Jaden Yuki is a strange kid. He lost his family at a young age and had been forced to grow up in an orphanage. Scrapping together cards to make a deck, the boy would duel other kids all the time. Eventually, all good things come to and end though. One day, Jaden loses one of his cards. After searching everywhere he somehow finds a card directly under his bed. Pulling it from the shadows, he sees the cards name, Yubel. Strange, subtle accidents start occurring around Jaden, and he is virtually shunned because of it.
Finding mental refuge in dueling, he takes on opponents outside of the orphanage constantly. One day however, his accidents just happen to start attracting the attention of the old care taker, who just happens to be a very religious and strict old war veteran. The veteran scrutinizes Jaden daily. The poor boy has his emotions in a wreck do to the observations and, unfortunately, that is when his 'accidents' start taking more serious turns.
Convinced that the boy is possessed by a spirit that is taking vengeance via card games, the old man observes the game every time the other children play, before buying his own cards and preparing to duel and defeat the boy. As a last resort, he takes a cross that has a sharpened end with him as necklace. He comes into Jaden's room and challenges the boy to a duel. Losing on the table, the man starts seeing Yubel standing right over Jaden, almost protectively. Prepared to take the demon down with him and the boy, he grabs his cross.
Jaden doesn't remember what happens next, only that when he woke up in the hospital he was taken to a new orphanage and never saw the place again. Completely shunned by all the orphans and ignored by the new care taker, he fights(fists) for his survival outside of the orphanage to gain money for food. Eventually able to use the left over money for a deck, he starts buying and storing cards. Several events happen in the orphanage that makes life harder for him, such as the care taker not allowing him to eat, barging into his room to see how he hadn't died of starvation, and after falsely accusing(and making another orphan frame) him of stealing food, he is finally kicked out. With two evictions from orphanages, the boy is shunned from all others. When the police come and say he is going to go with them until they find him a home, he takes the first chance he gets to run away.
With no trust in humanity or people, Jaden survives in the slums by dueling, fighting, stealing, and even killing in self-defense at one point. A poster to a grand tournament flies into his hands and he snatches the opportunity. Going under the alias, Seizon(Survival), he wins several tournaments and is invited to a face to face meeting with Sheppard, the chancellor of the prestigious Duel Academy. After talking through some rumors(that were true) about him being an orphan who had no legal papers, Sheppard allowed Jaden to join Duel Academy on the promise that he would take care of the boy's legal issues. However, he would have to give up his alias and let everyone know his true name before he joined. Jaden warily agrees.
Requirements: Jaden is not going to be trustful or joyful. He is a pure paranoia-driven survivor. He will have only a few people who he can call friends and loads of people he would name enemies. He is not going to be merciful either. If you enter an arena of any kind, expect to leave in a gurney.
Devil's Advocate: Yubel disappears after her little tricks in the orphanage. You can decide what happened to it.
Living in Enemy Territory: After several injuries and defeats of relatives from tournaments or prides, Jaden has accumulated mass hatred from a majority of the world. Seeing as their was no rule saying that duel monsters couldn't hurt people, he walked away scot-free, and even allowed to enter more tournaments. Needless to say, some crazy and/or desperate people will be in Duel Academy just waiting to try and kill him one way or another.
Hobo Just Isn't Insensitive Enough: Jaden will start off as a Slifer due to Sheppard's promise but will slowly work his way up. The only thing stopping him is academics. However, very rarely will Jaden ever sleep inside a dorm. He probably just doesn't feel safe there.
Not Evil, Just Hurt: A few students can see past or even work their way through Jaden's little mask of coldness. Such people as Zane would be recommended as a sort of surrogate brother to Jaden or best friend. You could do this with multiple people but please make it realistic. There's no way that someone like Chumley would see past it. (Possible examples of people to use: Zane, Alexis, Bastion, and Chazz)
Pairings: If you have pairings, I guess the most reasonable one would be JadenXAlexis. Not exactly that many choices.
Challenge #3: Pokemon: Darkened Leaves, Never Be Afraid.
Basic Summary: It's the same predicament as my "War Against The World" challenge with a twist. It's obvious that Ash would meet more of the locals of Pallet Town while he was training. One day during his training, he meets a crying girl. The girl's limp form reminded him of his mother's too much for him to ignore her. After a conversation, he understands that the girl's name is Leaf and she was an orphan who ran away from the orphanage because of the social torment against her. The kids never gave Leaf a chance to know her because of her strange name. After a bit of angry thoughts at the orphanage, Ash promises to help her. He doesn't want her going back to the orphanage and can't have her hiding in the forest with Pokemon(Ash: Damn those accursed demons!) so he allows her to hide in the only place the police won't search. His home. Of course, having a revenge-driven boy pair up with an impressionable girl is just asking for the two to change and adapt each others personalities slightly.
Requirements: This follows mostly the same as the other challenge, except now Ash isn't as silent and is capable of smiling. Leaf trains with him, of course. And while not having and direct hatred towards Pokemon, she will do anything she can to help Ash. Ash and Leaf can be slightly stronger than in the other challenge, since they have eachother to train with and watch each others backs. I suggest that near the final year of their training they start taking on low level Pokemon in the forest.
She is Allowed to Remove My Mask: Leaf can see Ash when he's at his most vulnerable. No matter how much he tries to hide it, Leaf will be able to tell when he's hurting. So eventually, he just stops trying to hide it from her. When he is happy with only her around, he will smile. When he is sad, he will frown with sadness in his eyes. That's all there is too it. He never get's lonely nor tired of her company. Leaf is the only person allowed to see past his masks all the time.
A Mask Made From My Heart: This story will use the same requirement on Oak's relationship with Ash as well. However, this time Ash will try not to get too close to the man in fear of him turning in Leaf(He keeps her a secret). This will result in a completely different change. One gain may also be another loss.
The War Against the World, Power of the People: Same as the challenge before dealing with Ash's notoriety and now Leaf's. However, their story is released in book form by an Officer Jenny who had been taken prisoner by them. Not being able to hate them due to their story, she secretly gathers others who agree and try to help the lovebirds. How will the people of the world react towards the two when they all know of their love and their hatred?
Darkness Using the Energy of Purity: Even though Ash has gone down a dark path, he has gained the power of Aura due to the few pure emotions he has. The most important and ever-growing being his love for Leaf. Transferring some of his power to her soon after he unlocks it, they train to fight on par with even legendaries.
The Difference: This is the change that was made due to "A Mask Made From My Heart". Since Oak has little success in pulling him from his path of darkness, he sends his grandson, Gary, who had become the Champion of Kanto by then after him. In an attempt to bring the two lovebirds to justice, Gary and Samuel team up and fight to two. Unfortunately, by that time the duo had become too strong. They were defeated, albeit not easily.
The Truth of the World: Eventually, due to not being completely blind in his revenge, Ash realizes that killing all Pokemon in the world would endanger all humans. Realizing that if he hadn't met Leaf, he very well could have killed everyone, he sets out on a different path. To subjugate every Pokemon in the world. To do that, he will need followers. His first opportunity comes in the form of Giovanni, the leader of Team Rocket.
I See Your Mother In You: Giovanni had watched Ash's progress the entire time during his journey through Kanto. He was well aware of his accomplice, Leaf as well. Seeing the two personally, he makes his decision based on the anger and pure rage in his heart at his love's death. Despite hating the father of Ash, Giovanni now only sees Delia in him. And how Delia and him used to be when he saw Ash and Leaf. Giovanni couldn't bare to see his love be married to someone else. And he won't let his love's child's dream die, not when it is the perfect form of justice. Team Rocket will help Ash and Leaf control the world of Pokemon. No longer are they today's crooks, they are tomorrow's heroes.
Pairings: Obviously, it's planned to be Ash/Leaf. However, I guess I should probably explain how I hope Leaf to be huh?... Leaf needs to be gentle mostly, while still retaining confidence. To put simply, mix Hinata Hyuga, May Maple, and C.C. to get who I'm thinking of. She should be gentle mostly, but always prepared to tease Ash. And her enemies shall only see her fierceness, while her love's foes can only see her coldness. She holds no hate towards everyone, but she will not let them get in Ash's way. I don't want her to simply be in love with Ash, I want a True Love relationship as I describe below in my Random Thoughts of Shit section.
Notes: Obviously, since he's not out to kill every single Pokemon, he can be a trainer. But not on the level you hope. He will be like Paul to his Pokemon, except a few. Those few being a Riolu(Who will evolve into Lucario), Pikachu(Leaf eventually convinced him to go get a starter, if only to be the first Pokemon he subjugates) and an Absol(Insert epic story here!). He can be close to others, but to the rest he is the tyrant that they never cross. Leaf will also be a trainer, and she allows Ash to subjugate them, but is rather kind to them other than that. Think of her like the slave master who keeps the Pokemon from rebelling. They understand that their master is subjugating everyone due to his dream and eventually understand that they have no other choice but to help. It's obvious that they start to like their masters and vice-versa after a while. Also, I suggest Leaf's first pokemon be an Eevee and then a Volpix.
Remember though, trainer or not, their first tactic is to fight with their own power. Blades, Aura and Fist first! Negotiation second! Pokemon and Option One Last!
Challenge #4: Persona 4: Against All Odds
Souji Seta had always fought against the odds of life. His parents moving him around like a tool, expecting him to do nothing more than provide for them after high school and then marry someone with influential power. Despite this, he had never talked much. A man who is supposed to have connections, shuns everyone around him. Instead of talking to girls with family power, he ignores them while they all ogle at him.
Now, finally staying away from his parent's judgement, in the countryside of Inaba. Souji prepares to finally let loose and prepare his own future. No contacts, no friends, no power, no money. All he has is the slight support of his cousin Nanako and her father Ryotaro Dojima.
Of course, the murders start taking place soon after he arrives. After getting sucked into the business with the TV World, he must balance his growing social and professional life with his vigilante life. However, he was not given the power of Persona when he and Yosuke were attacked by the Shadows. Fighting all his enemies with nothing more then his intellect, courage and blade, how will Souji survive?
Requirements: Souji is quiet mostly because he had a unsocial childhood. However, using his intellect and previous memories of other people interacting, he can easily put on social masks to the level of a psychopath(Adachi). While maintaining his heroic viewpoint, he will stop the murders, protect Nanako, help Dojima, all while increasing his own standing in life.
Hero Of Zero: With no Persona power at all, the wildcard falls into nothingness. Igor and Margaret tries to get it back into Souji's hands but it is all in vain. He can not wield it's power. Souji fights with a sword as always but he has to have the skill of masters. You know what they say, "Necessity is the mother of invention."
Family Man Shunned By Parents: Despite his dislike of his parents, he quickly finds himself enjoying the Dojima's presence. Nanako's innocence and love combined with Ryotaro's caring scolding and concern will keep him grounded to Inaba even in his newly rising life. He will not wish to leave, and will not do so after the year.
To Climb To The Top: Using his intellect and skills, Souji must make his own life in Inaba. He must learn how to fully support himself in a legal way. I don't care if he starts off scrubbing the windows in the hospital as long as he is a very recognizable person in the community of Inaba in the end. Preferably some type of writer. Heroes turned writers always sell loads and it's completely believable.
Inaba Investigation Team: Souji must be the best of friends with them all. Despite not having a Persona, he will still be regarded as their leader, solely because of his skill and intellect. You can also make it so Yosuke has more screen time because he deserves it.
Pairings: Personally, I am a big fan of SoujiXNaoto, and I very much dislike KanjiXNaoto. So, this will be my only challenge where the pairing will be mandatory. Souji/Naoto is mandatory, but all other pairings are your choice. You could go YosukeXChie, KanjiXRise, or anything you can think of...except Nanako. She is too innocent for that!
Notes: Any other changes to the story, I would prefer if someone tells me about before hand, but I am probably going to do this one myself, so I don't care as long as I am told about the story itself.
Newest Note: I HAVE taken this challenge upon myself. I hope this will be interesting.
Challenge #5: Kingdom Hearts: A Misguided Encouragement
When Xion reverted back into Roxas(Sora as well, technically), he gave into his anger that shouldn't have existed. Running through the World That Never Was to get to Xemnas, even though his memories of Xion was fading. Of course, Riku stopped him short. However, Xion told Riku to stop him after giving Riku a Keyblade. What if Roxas had heard part of her words as well? Would her words reignite his almost vanished memories? Would it encourage him to fight using everything he had?
The answer? Yes, it would. Sora is consumed by his nobody(Unknowingly to Roxas) and things fall out of place for everyone. With the connection between Sora and Roxas no longer existent, Xion manifests again from the memories of Roxas, who is no longer a nobody. Even after defeating Riku before he could bring out Ansem, Roxas and Xion were unable to defeat Xemnas. They did the next best thing. Run away to fight another day, with DiZ!
With a confused DiZ, an emotional Xion, and everyone knowing he absorbed Sora except for himself, Roxas sets off to defeat Organization XIII.
Requirements: Try to make everybody in character still. It may be hard but don't make Roxas and Xion confess love to eachother just after escaping.
The Consequences of Xion: Roxas used everything he had to defeat Riku, Sora included. However, with Sora consumed and turned into the Nobody of Roxas, how will everyone who knew the boy react to Roxas and Xion? I doubt kindly. Kairi and her Nobody had made it their mission to defeat Roxas and free Sora. Riku is stuck along with DiZ, Roxas, and Xion trying to defeat the Organization despite his rage at Roxas. All of this simply because Roxas wanted Xion to be beside him. He realizes this, but knows that he wouldn't have it any other way.
An Angry Rescue: Even though Xion was happy she was saved and would be able to live with Roxas once more. She would still be reasonably pissed that her sacrifice was taken the wrong way and Roxas went off the deep end because of it. Expect some anger from her directed at Roxas.
We're Best Friends, Got it Memorized?: Axel has shown that he believes that he has no other choice but to follow the Organization. But with Roxas now whole, he can believe there is another way. Axel agrees to help DiZ if he can find his other and help him become whole, the same way Roxas did.
Pairings: I'm pretty sure everyone wants Roxas/Xion in this fic as it would be pretty hard to do anything else. I want to say it is required but, if you want to make them "Just Friends", go ahead. Although, that seems very unlikely. Everything else? Go crazy!
Challenge #6: Bleach: The True Underdog
Isshin was nothing but a human. Drawn into the conflict of the proud Quincy clan, he and Masaki elope to escape an arranged marriage, Ryuken Ishida aiding their escape. Ichigo, Karin, and Yuzu are born. Uryu and Ryuken are welcome in the Kurosaki family. Everyone mourns for Masaki, who died protecting both Ichigo and Uryu. In his struggle against himself, he seeks strength to protect those he holds preciously. Ryuken accepts. After using the Sanrei glove against a Menos invasion to protect Karakura, 14 year old Ichigo loses his powers.
A year later, everyone watches as Ichigo goes through life on autopilot, without the strength to protect. However, a single incident changes this, as it was always meant to.
Rukia is taken and Ichigo will save her. But how does a Quincy fight against the very afterlife itself using a Shinigami's powers?
An Intended Promise: Ryuken accepts his Quincy heritage, because of Ichigo's explanation for wanting to be stronger. To protect those who are important. To protect those who Masaki wished protected. Uryu and Ichigo are not trained by Soken Ishida, but by Ryuken.
A Close Family: There MUST be time for Ichigo to spend with his family. In canon, Ichigo spends almost no time with his sisters or father. Now he has to spend time with them, Uncle Ryuken, and his bro Uryu. Separate attention is fine, if not preferred. Spend some time on everyone's character, as they are not exactly the same as canon. Yuzu will probably still be a mother-hen after Masaki's death. Karin will probably want to get stronger in her own way. Isshin will just attempt to be crazy to hide his sadness but will have far more serious times. Uryu doesn't have to be too prideful anymore because he isn't in a rebel stage with his father.
School friends: Chad, Orihime, Tatsuki, Keigo, and Mizuiro are still friends with Ichigo, in relatively the same fashion. You can add Uryu into their little mix of course. If not, make sure he has a reason. However, Ichigo doesn't leak reiatsu anymore. So Chad and Orihime can't get spiritual powers in the same way. However, Chad is not one to care. Even without a way to fight, he will try to protect his friends. Even if that means with only his fists. Chad must fight all the way with Ichigo using his bare fists until at least after the Rescue Rukia arc. Then you can make some incredible scheme as to why he can use his own powers, whether they be canon or not.
Pairings: To be honest, I don't care what pairing you use really. As long as you make it make sense. In canon, IchiHime would never really work. In this, if you can somehow make Orihime mesh with this Ichigo, go ahead. However, there are other options. Be creative if you want, I would honestly like to see IchiTatsu, IchiSen, or the classic IchiRuki. I would prefer it if it was not a yaoi fic as I do want people to read this story as I hope it to be a wonderful work, and not many people care for yaoi stories. Pairings should only exist when they don't affect who reads the story.
Favorite Bleach Pairings:
Ichigo X Rukia(Soul mates I say!)
Ichigo X Senna(Why does nobody remember the Memory Rosary!?...Also, strangest part is that Senna has a closer interaction with him than anyone but Rukia)
Toshiro X Karin(Sadly, I do not expect this one to happen)
Kisuke X Yoruichi(Crazy people...Yet fucking hilarious)
Uryu X Nemu(She is practically a blank slate. Anything could happen with her, so she is perfect for Fan fiction)
Disliked Bleach Pairings:
Ichigo X Inoue(She is a fan girl, he is a scowling popular teen...That never mixes)
Renji X Rukia(They are practically siblings...)
Toshiro X Momo(Same reason...)
Byakuya X Rukia(They ARE siblings! Those people make me sick! You know who you are...)
Uryu X Inoue(Genius and the airhead?...You fans must really believe body is everything...)
Favorite Naruto Pairings:

Kakashi X Kurenai(I know this won't happen, but I like it anyway)
Kakashi X Anko(Gives more details into her character, and is a workable match)
Shikamaru X Temari(Their child(ren) shall defeat Einstein)
Neji X Tenten(Who doesn't love a happy Neji?)
Disliked Naruto Pairings:
Naruto X Sakura(She is a bitch, and he only pursued her because he had no idea what Love was. I wanna say more, but it would paragraphs)
Kiba X Hinata(They are practically siblings...)
Shikamaru X Ino(They don't share a single romantic piece of dialogue or contact)
Neji X Hinata(They ARE family. Again, you people make me sick! You know who you are...)
Sasuke X Hinata(I don't even think these two have shared a conversation...You fans make no sense some times...)
Some people will ask me "Why do you support NaruHina and not support IchiHime? Hinata and Orihime are practically the same!"
My answer to questions like this? "Hinata is NOT like Inoue. Inoue is a weakling and she knows it. Hinata was very fucking strong before Shippuden. Inoue never gets strong in her entire time on the show. Also Ichigo and Naruto, are NOT similar. Ichigo had a family to comfort him when he was down, Naruto had no family and didn't even know what emotions were, until he copied some from the villagers(Which is hard when all of them are showing hate, disgust, etc).
When the Winter War is coming, Inoue is asked to stay out of it by Kisuke. What does she do? She accepts and cries.(Oh and gets herself kidnapped...)
When the Fourth Shinobi World War is coming, Hinata is in the Second Division...The "Close Range Fighter Division", apparently.
Hell, even their confessions show their differences.
Inoue Confession: She tries to kiss him in his sleep, and leaves him to have a nightmare.
Hinata Confession: She pretty much saves him from Pein. And she never backs down until she 'dies'. To which Naruto goes as far as full Nine Tails, which allows him to meet his father...Damn Hinata gave him a lot there...
So that together is my answer.
Lann Majra's Honorary Wall Of Heroes
Hero of Origin: To the man who had fought with his bonds as strength. To the man who had taken down an army by himself. To the man who, even in death, could not erase the bond of his love. To the man who died with a smile on his face. Congratulations Zack, you became a hero.
Hero of Sacrifice: To the man who slowly killed himself to save the world from war. To the man who had cut his bonds for the sake of the people he shared them with. To the man who had shown his heroism even after death. To the man who planned his own death. Itachi, you truly loved the your village and your brother.
Hero of Strife: To the man who had made his own path with light weaving through it. To the man who had fought against time to fight himself. To the man who would throw away his own life for the world. To the man who was not human yet held the most humanity. Cole, the word Saint just isn't pure enough for you...
Hero of Freedom: To the man who had defied fate. To the man who had reversed his hatred into protectiveness. To the man who had flown far and wide, regardless of his cage. To the man who had not only beaten fate, but controlled it to his own will. Neji, you shall be remembered for what you were, a genius who won against fate with the role of the fool.
Hero of Peace: To the man who had been born half dead. To the man who protected his bonds as if they were his life. To the man who had limitless potential and strength, with only his will controlling it. To the man who had stormed through the afterlife itself to save his heart. Ichigo, you may have surpassed the strength of a god, but your soul never changed.
Hero of Will: To the man who controlled millions with a mere gaze. To the man who had forced a will upon God. To the man who had allowed himself to be killed to eliminate hatred from the world. To the man who had redefined solitude into a wish. Lelouch, you loved your sister, your friends, your witch, your queen, and those bonds are what you manipulated to destroy the world, to create a new one.
Hero of Knowledge: To the man who had forged his weapons with sheer knowledge. To the man who had won against All. To the man who gave his ability to fight away to end his fighting. To the man who had changed his soul into pure energy. Edward, you embarked on a journey due to foolishness and ended up winning against a god, why can't you just drink your milk like a normal boy?...
Hatred is a strong word. However, there is a few things I can say I hate. One of them, is a word I have created myself using other anime characters as examples.
People, I am here to warn you all. Of the menace that hides in our very walls. It could be anywhere.
People, I shall tell you. Of the infamous... Inoue Character.
The Inoue Character was named after a good example of what it resembles.
Common signs of an Inoue Character: Severe Uselessness, Strange Hair Color, Obsessive Tendencies, Attraction To The Unknown, Female(To this point...), Loud Voice, And If Ever Useful It Shall Only Be A Single Use(Like a loan, it will be paid back later...), Stupidity, Possible Retardation, Terrible Cooking, and Just Generally Being Hated For What It Probably Thinks Are Good Intentions.
Known Inoue Characters:
Orihime Inoue: Nicknamed, Inoue Prime, has a severe uselessness in offense and defense, normally only able to scrounge up the courage to make a shield a few times, when it could be used in many better ways. Definitely stupid, has terrible cooking, and is attracted to a person she doesn't even know. Strange hair color being a dark orange that looks like thrown up blood. Mother was a prostitute, with Father being her employer. Brother came back from the dead to kill her for seemingly forgetting him which was a likely possibility with her ditzy mind. Shortly after having to be protected multiple times, she is kidnapped willingly because she can not have faith in her protectors who protect her simply because she cannot protect herself.
Danger Level: She may have skills in seduction, so men be on your guard. She also is more than likely funded by people on the street corner where she is mostly found. Loud screeching voice. Possibly insane with hysteria and hallucinations.
Sachi: Fearful of dying when it is bound to happen at some point or another, and is too afraid to forestall it. Suicidal tendencies make her very existence hypocritical, so be aware logical people. Possible retardation, with a hint of sociopath tendencies.
Danger Level: None. Slain by Kayaba Akihiko(Technically)
Shirley Fennete: Nicknamed, Inoue Alpha, has no ability whatsoever. Can not fight or defend, and as a very slow mind. Can not process new information quickly, makes assumptions far too easily, and is attracted to a person she doesn't even know well. Strange hair color that copies Inoue Prime's, in the exact same color and fashion. Family is mostly unknown except for a father who was a noble mechanic for some reason, said father also sent her strange gifts such as opera tickets. We assume this is his way of insulting her. She goes crazy at one point and shoots the person she is attracted to because she is easily manipulated. Eventually, after having her memories wiped she continues to crush on the now-stranger. She regains her memories and tells someone who may be an enemy confidential information, effectively making herself a target. Thankfully, unlike other animes, she gets what she rightfully deserves.
Danger Level: None. Shot by Rolo Lamperouge. May God Bless His Soul.

Random things I've noted...
1) Has anyone else wondered why over 75% of stories in the Bleach category that have Ichigo as a main character is yaoi?... Just a bit random for an obviously straight person. (Bleach)
2) Why does everybody forget Senna!!! D: If nobody forgot her, I bet people would be making some IchiSen fics... (Bleach)
3) Anyone else notice Isshin is a terrible father and think Zangetsu manifested as a stern teacher to be a compensation for a father figure? (Bleach)
4) Why is Inoue so stupid despite her school grades?... For someone who has a wandering mind, she sure can remember trigonometry. (Bleach)
5) Is there a reason the most popular female characters of Naruto show up the least in the show?... No seriously, go check the official polls and screen times. (Naruto)
6) Anyone else think Jiraiya is the worst teacher ever? Three years and all you do is teach him some basic knowledge a first year academy student should know? (Naruto)
7) If the Zanpakuto spirit resides in the soul... then does that mean that Ichigo's soul is inside his soul?... Soul-ception!!! :O (Bleach)
8) Is Ichigo a bad older brother? He never spends any time with his sisters in the entire show, even on their mother's death day... (Bleach)
9) Why do so many people hate it when OCs are main characters, even if the OC is well-balanced for a main character? Even if it's an underdog? (Fanfiction)
10) Why does most of our favorite Japanese games suck at customization? Just face it... Everyone wants a Character Creation in a Naruto or Bleach game. (Games)
If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried.
Lann Majra supports this phrase so much, he had to repost it
Quotes by unknowns that I support.
"It's not a sense of justice. Protecting my friends, and finding my own path is how I live life. If you measured good and evil deeds by current laws, I would be responsible for many crimes. The same way you like to hone your skills and live your own lives, for me too it's simply prolonging something I enjoy doing. That's why I only fight those that pique my interest; it's not justice at all. And if it means being able to protect a friend or becoming stronger, I don't and will not play fair. I'm a dishonest, cheating human being who hates losing." - Unknown.
"Heroes come and go, but the stories never change, the battle between good an evil will rage on for millenniums to come, yet through out all time there is two things that have never changed, evil never dies, and heroes never surrender!" -Unknown.
"It is my loyalty and dedication towards the village and its people that makes my heart strong, if I'm fighting for the sake of those I love and care about, then I care not what happens to this body. For I am the blade that fights for the sake of my friends and their future, as such I have no regrets." - Unknown.
"Friendship and loyalty? Yeah, I know about that. My burns show for all to see how loyal I am to my friends. Can you beat that friendship? There isn't a single soul alive who can beat the power of trusted allies, because they're just that, a single soul. True power lies in the bonds you create, in the hearts of those you've shared your good times and the bad. So, even if you do defeat this body, someone even stronger would surface and take my place. That's because I have allies I am honored to have stand beside me and call me "friend". So bring it! You said you wanted to kill my friends, right? I won't let you, because those bonds are all I have! " - Unknown.
Thoughts on Random Shit
The Number and Symbol, Zero.
"Zero is a number that is normally empty. However, in different situations it can act as anything. To be Zero is to be able to use a facade of anything. But without that facade, you are nothing. Literally and metaphorically. None know this more than I."- Lann Majra, when asked who he is.
"No matter who you are, eventually you will lie. To deny this, is to lie to yourself. Because every time you think the truth, you subconsciously think of several lies that could cloud it. It is in human nature to lie, and to deny that is to deny your very existence. Lies aren't bad. Their not good either. Nor are they neutral. They are simply thoughts of possible theories that you doubt, secretly stated as if you were speaking hypothetically. So in essence, lies are just secrets. It's perfectly okay to keep a secret."- Lann Majra, philosophy of reality.
"I do not believe in Heaven or Hell. The reason? If Heaven is a state of never-ending peace, then it is actually a hell in itself. Conflict is necessary for change. A world without change is torture. And if Heaven had some sort of supernatural ability to change what we think of it's stagnation, then we do not have our so called 'Free Will' that Christians say 'God' had given us, making the ideal of God and Heaven fake, hence making Hell fake as well. Anyone who does not see the reason of this example, is obviously biased."- Lann Majra, when asked if he wanted to go to Heaven.
My Insanity. My Family.
I've had my days when I felt life was not worth living. Fuck, I had years of that. In the weakest points of my sanity when everything I've done just wants to lash out at every single fucking piece of existence, including my own. Those were the points in which I had seriously considered suicide. The point where I would feel the terrible onslaught of thoughts that sounded foreign in my head yet felt so familiar there that it was like they were at home, after that I would black out and listen to the terrible thoughts and sometimes the sound and sight of my friends trying to fight me, or what I assumed was me from my perspective. Strangely enough, I never felt like they were trying to kill me though. It was this thought, no this fact, that made me stop. Suddenly, I wanted to control more of my body. I wanted to fight them with my complete attention. Every time I felt like I was losing control, I would think about them, about Lance, about Clyde, about Fione, about Alexis. Then I would get back up with a headache and sew up whatever wounds I had subconsciously inflicted upon them, trying to ignore the pain I felt as Alexis did the same to me. This is one fucked up family.
"I believe in true love. Do I believe that every time some random ass teenager says the cheesy three words, that they mean it? Fuck no. What they call 'Love' is merely overcharged affection based off of lies, trust, and hope. Take away any of those or overdose any of them and the bond becomes brittle. True Love is completely different. It is the point where you are unhealthily attracted to someone. The point of which most people would call obsessive and you would most definitely be defined as crazy for. However, it is an almost unbreakable bond. If you are in True Love, your love can cheat on you, beat you, or even kill you, and you would still love them. This is why it is unhealthy. However, if both sides are in True Love, you get a relationship only described as close as Perfect as possible. They both are obsessive about eachother, but only to eachother. They trust eachother not to even hurt the others heart. They have no reason to cheat on eachother, they find the person in their arms to be the best. They may have reason to beat eachother, their both strengthening eachother. They don't want to kill eachother, because it would be tantamount to killing themselves. Sure their both insane. But they can die with a smile on their faces knowing that they are meeting up with their partner. No god or demon could keep them apart. None would even try to keep a crazy person from their addiction, especially if said addiction is trying to get to the crazy person as well."- Lann Majra, when asked if he believed in true love.
Okay, for some redundant reason people feel like giving characters a shit ton of women who he barely knows or deserves. In my opinion, there are VERY FEW characters who actually deserve a harem, albeit a small one. In fact, out of all the anime and manga I have watched/read, I can only think of two! Those two being, Lelouch Lamperouge and, forgive me for making a lot of people laugh or stare blankly at me for this, Ash Ketchum. And before you go on some idiotic rant, let me tell you exactly WHY this is true. Lelouch Lamperouge had made Kallen fall in love with him, but pushed her away so she did not get caught up in his Requiem. He also suggested to loving C.C. too many times to count and had effectively made her continue living past his Requiem and see the world he had made. And that's it, not counting siblings or half siblings which are actually very possible as well. I don't know if you can call it a harem, but it's more then one girl. Maybe you wish to count Kaguya who doesn't love him. Whatever. In my opinion, Ash Ketchum actually deserves a harem more than him, which is a scary thought that a ten year old kid who never ages and was made for other ten year old kids has a possibility of entering a relationship involving more then...5 girls? Let's count em all off. Misty, who I could definitely see kicking Ash's ass out of bed and putting him on the couch. May, who I can just envision cooking a lot of food and both her and Ash scarfing it down. Dawn, who is probably the least likely since I always thought of them as a Brother/Sister thing but it's still very possible. And don't forget any other woman that has traveled with him for a week or two. Any woman in movies, including Latias and Bianca. And of course, one of the few characters that I can see with many OCs. The kid is just too heroic for his own good and has his own very likeable personality. Now look onto people who don't deserve or need harems but still get them. Ichigo is a one woman kind of guy, as he is too honorable and uptight. Naruto would never betray someone he loves like that nor would he care for the obvious abuse he would face at such a relationship. And Tsukune is kinda border lining it but that's because of the fact that they tried to set him up for one.
Fanfiction: Yuri and Yaoi.
I will respect that some people are interested in the same gender. Hell, I have a few gay friends. Sure, some of the stereotypes have proven true, on rare occasions, but not all of them and the people are still rather nice and courteous. But I will say that some people are just crazy when they make pairings of the same gender that have no chance at it. I will admit that Naruto/Sasuke pairing has complete potential and if one of them were female in canon, it is definitely possible that they would have ended up together. They are not interested in guys, so that is the reason why. Fuck, I can bring up a few more examples of possible yaoi pairings and even a yuri one. Lelouch/Suzaku, Ash/Gary, Ash(Damn this guy is just too likeable!)/Brock, Yoruichi/Soifon. So it is in my opinion that people who support yaoi or yuri pairings should not be bashed on the exception that they not bash normal ones because they are straight. I say revert back to my opinion on Love to understand what I mean. However, I still reserve the right to say I'm not interested in it.
