Author has written 13 stories for Bleach, and Star Wars.

I'm an Australian with a current Bleach obsession. Most of what I write will be short and/or single chaptered simply because I don't have the time (or dedication) to attempt any multi-chaptered fics.

I like to focus on the minor (and often overlooked) characters and my current favourites are Shunsui, Nanao, Unohana, Hitsugaya and Matsumoto with a bit of Ukitake thrown in for good measure.

My OTP is the grand romance that is ShunsuixNanao. I also enjoy writing about the (for lack of a better term) "pre-romance" of Hitsugaya and Matsumoto, and adore the idea of Ukitake x Unohana. For the main part though, my pairings are more implied than explicit and I tend to focus more on what could be rather than what is.

A series of misadventures starring the faces of the Tenth Division, Hitsugaya Toushirou and Matsumoto Rangiku. Their relationship started the same way any number of relationships start: awkwardly. But things, as they say, change. Nowhere is that truer than here. HitsuMatsu.

Breathing Lessons by DarthAmmonite reviews
Nanao couldn’t imagine what she’d do without the Eighth, or its captain. She supposed that she loved both, although it wasn’t the kind of whitehot passion that her friend Matsumoto was always waxing eloquent about. Maybe that was the problem.
