Author has written 3 stories for Magic Knight Rayearth/魔法騎士レイアース, Inuyasha, and Bleach.
A place for me to explore.
Explanations and my thought process.
My thought process is everywhere, but I can't seem to move forward if I don't post or write. So my stories... I will likely post chapters and then come back, change and edit as I feel necessary. This means this is going to be messy.
Tite Kudo decided to label Ichigo's and Rukia's relationship as "courage," even though to me, how they pushed each other out of their respective depression, understood each other, and changed each other lives... seemed closer to me to "love." It's also really frustrating because I remember reading this quote "I don't want to make Bleach into a love story because there are much more exciting things about their personalities and things that they can do instead of getting into the romance aspects of their relationships." And then what, the story ends with romance and a normal love story or family story? It ended something with "normal" when wasn't the whole part was showing theirs worlds were far from normal?
It just doesn't make sense to me. Yes, Ichigo wanted "normal," but I also felt that was denial. He probably just wanted his mom back and alive, but that was impossible, and he had no ways to reconcile these "ugly" parts of himself and his life, at least, not until Rukia busted into his life. And it revealed that his family and his heritage was never 'normal' to begin with. Beyond, there existed completely different worlds... worlds that because of Rukia, he rejected and tore down all arbitrary rules and regulations. And for all of that... to just... go back to 'normal' felt like a complete waste of the entire story.
Sure, maybe I will always be biased because of my love for Ichigo's and Rukia's dynamic, and I don't have anything against Orihime, but.. for everyone to endure so much to just have everything go back as is? Life does goes in circles, but yet something with the ending is still so deeply dissatisfying. It didn't seem to give any answers of how we move forward. Honestly, if ended after Ichigo lost his powers and couldn't see Rukia anymore, I would have been happier there. I can understand because of different worlds, and how loyal Ichigo was his family, and Rukia to her's (and her duty)... that I can understand how their lives must be parallel instead of together in that sense, but it didn't feel like there was any further... push, when stories can be something of answers or explorations of how we can do that. It was just.. self-serving I guess, I don't know.
I'm still trying to figure that out. Thus, this story. And I am not claiming I can do a better job, but hell, maybe I can at least find some answers to my own question at least... listening to the characters and dynamics I fell in love with.
Also, I just love Grimmjow's character. And placing into a Hana Yori Dango kind of school atmosphere is just ridiculous, so here we are.
