Did my LB7-sensei call it or what? Here is one of her many beautiful drawings of Ulquiorra based on the transformation Charon, the boatsman of myth, takes in battle.
Lookingback7(aka r0ck3tsci3ntist on LJ)predicted Ulquiorra's release waaaaaay back when. And I've been crowing about my calling it too in this essay, based on convos with her: This is the essay:
Ulquiorra Can Regenerate. In it, I wrote:
My fangirl fantasy--and I admit it's just a fantasy--has always been for Uryuu to meet Ulquiorra. After all, I've slashed the pair in fanfic and nothing would give me more of a thrill than to see the two go at one another--especially if Ishida is in some super-fine double-winged Angel Ultimate Quincy form and Ulquiorra is in some, say, sexy black demon-winged release a la the Charon myth....
Oooh, now if only my Quincy could get back into the scene, then all my fangirl
fantasies would come true!!!
I'm too busy hyperventilating from the pix. More later.
