bleachness has gotten too big for me to handle (by myself). I intended this community to be my writing journal and a place where my fan friends could blab without annoying my non-fan friends on my private journal but in just a matter of months, hundreds of people tagged along for the ride and the discussion has been really fun and far be it from me to call "lights out" on the party just because I can't keep up. Due to ongoing illnesses in my family I just haven't been able to write fic and fancy meta myself but people like to come here for their bleachy squee and theories and someone needs to keep an eye on the place so it stays within the parameters of fair discourse.
So two people
jaina is the lucky girl who got to interview Kubo-sensei and look into his pretty brown eyes last year and karenai is someone who's always here with something intelligent to say. Both are Americans, my friends, and gals who won't take any bullshit so honour them as thou wouldst me and all shall be fine.
One last thing--AAAARGH! to our friends in Tokyo who went through that earthquake last week. I hope everyone is okay. I know my friends are. I heard from Spacecat right away and then got concerned about aftershocks and typhoons. Kubo's studio was in the midst of relocating and I hope damage hasn't set back Bleach. My sister lives in the Bay area of San Fransisco so I worry about earthquakes a lot, not to mention that its hurricane season as I type this. I'm looking forward to a new chapter coming out soon and for there to be MAJOR carnage and ass-kicking, anything to alleviate my anxiety of the season. Barragan? It'll serve Hachi and Soi right if Barry's fine but the old guy scares me and so does the concept of Time dissolving Everything so yeah, blow him to bits.
