Predictions! Let's Make Predictions!  
We're really sloooooow about our predictions coming true over here at bleachness but we have a good track record. Just looking back at some of the Crystal Ball contests, I see that in the Spectacular Crystal Ball Contest 2006 my friend Shini predicted that Ulquiorra would fight Grimmjow ... and hey, that happened eventually. In the second Spectacular Crystal Ball Contest no one really made any predictions, lol. There were lots of predictions in the third one, but we’re still waiting for the ones from 2008 to come true because our imaginations outpace the plot apparently.

Later on in this community, I did call Ulquiorra being able to regenerate and I did call his pretty demon wings! Yey me! I got to laugh at my foes who predicted that Ishida was not going to show up at the tower because he was busy trying to find a way out of Hueco Mundo with Mayuri or making out with Nemu and I think a lot of us breathed a little "told ya so" when Orihime didn't give IchiThing a Cooldown Hug at the end of the UlquiIchi fight.

Now people are talking about what's going to happen whenever (2010?) Kubo-sensei returns us to the top of the dome. I'm not handing out prizes or drabbles for people who make correct predictions this time because I have no time to drabble, only to make polls. So here's a perfectly useless poll and if it doesn't satisfy your prognosticative needs, please detail your predictions for what's going to happen in the comments.

Poll #1451983 When We Get Back To the Top of The Dome

When we get back to the top of the dome....

Orihime will have healed Ishida hand and restored Ichigo's clothes and there's no emotional talk because it's time for another battle!
Ishida will have died from blood loss. Cue angst fest.
Ishida will cue Ichigo in on how much Orihime wept and screamed and suffered for Ichigo's sake.
Ichigo will need to remind Orihime to heal Ishida.
Ichigo will BLAME HIMSELF. For pages and panels.
Orihime will BLAME HERSELF. For pages and panels.
Ishida will tell either Ichigo or Orihime or both that no one was to blame but he might remember that he was reluctant to take Orihime up to the top of the dome.
The guilt party will be interrupted by Yammy wanting to kill Four-Eyes.
Orihime will take down Yammy.
Ishida will take down Yammy.
Ichigo will instantly un-emo and take down Yammy!
Hey look! It's Unohana!
Ichigo and Orihime have a bonding moment over their fail as Ulquiorra's ashes dance around them.
Orihime attempts to restore Ulquiorra (and either fails or succeeds but the point is she tries)
Ulquiorra who? No one even mentions him when we return to the dome.

ETA: oh, look, the Ship Manifesto Polls are back! The link will take you to a round featuring GinRan! They're still sorting out the mess with sock puppets apparently. :( The game is still on, though, so I'm glad. I got to vote for Bulma/Vegeta and Ahiru/Fakir AND GIN/Ran so I can go to bed happy tonight knowing I expressed my shipping preferences on the internet!

ETA2: Another round featuring the OT3 of Rukia/Renji/Ichigo and the pairing of Ishida/Orihime <3 is up now here

I voted for 1, 3, 5, 7 and of course...The last choice.

Ichigo will emo FOREVER
chiremaechiremae on September 2nd, 2009 02:00 am (UTC)
I am going with Imstant Ichigo recovery and fight yammy. Actually I dont think we are going to the top of the dome, I think KT wil swith to the Yammy-Chad/Rukia/Renji fight. I recalled KT mentining Chad fighting. And somewhere in the middle of the fight Ichigo will appear to join in.

I doubt there will be any emitional scene between Ichigo and Orihime, there might be one between Ishida and Orihime (someting along the line of Renji-Rukia scene) Orihime will smilev, be seriously touched by Ishida 'confessions' but will still have a thing for Kurosaki kun, in short KT will whitewash any emotional confrontation and things will go back to status quo relatively speaking.

I am thinking we might not even see much of Orihime or Ishida since KT likes to give vacation break for characters he had heavily focus on. I am think we will see a handful of panels of both of them all of next year. However, since Nostradamus I am not, and my predictions rarely materialized, we probably swithed to the top of the dome next week! ;P

"Ishida will cue Ichigo in on how much Orihime wept and screamed and suffered for Ichigo's sake."

Meh, I meant to uncheck this option before I submitted. The only way I see this happening is if Ichigo outwardly blames & yells at Orihime for the state he's in, but that's an act I don't see him doing at all. I do believe the shock of finding out what happened up there is going to paralyze him for awhile and I'm expecting more angst from him than Orihime when we return.

Ichigo and Orihime always emo over everything, so I'll have to vote for those. And for them to forget all about Ishida =/

And of course Ichigo's gonna kill Yammy.......who else would? /sarcasm
never give up!  ৵  never surrender!: (bleach) orihime omg omg omg yayloquaciousquark on September 2nd, 2009 02:50 am (UTC)
OOOOH, I never even considered Orihime taking down Yammy! That would be a nice reversal from their first fight, I think.
_debbiechan_: Orihime the next time we meet_debbiechan_ on September 2nd, 2009 02:56 am (UTC)

OH MAN, I WANT THAT SOOOOOO MUCH. Especially when you consider that it was Yammy who took out Tsubaki--HOW AWESOME would it be for Tsubaki to be fired (say in defense of Ishida as Yammy was about to take a shot at him?) right into Yammy's ear canal? KABOOM!
Kylarakarenai on September 2nd, 2009 03:13 am (UTC)
D'awww, you ship Ahiru/Fakir. I've seen this before but I don't think I've addressed it. They are an OTP of mine. Ever read this fic? http://memlu.livejournal.com/327480.html Divine.

Oh, yes, Bleach.

LOL @ everyone, including me, who voted for Unohana.

And I am not really looking forward to the Ichigo-angstfest from hell. Oh well. Poor boy needs a cookie.

I want to click on all of them. :)
manonlechat: Gin_Ichimarumanonlechat on September 2nd, 2009 04:34 am (UTC)
Unohana takes down Yammy.

Orihime will attempt to restore Ulquiorra and will somehow fail or be prevented. :( (Mayyyyybe he comes back at a later point.)

Ishida and Orihime will grow closer.

Unrelated: Tousen and Gin will separately and eventually turn on Aizen. :) Then die. :(

So it shall be!
kohi_no_torakohi_no_tora on September 2nd, 2009 05:17 am (UTC)
Unohana will kick ass and take names in Hueco Mundo because dammit we need to see this hidden potential!

Orihime will (eventually) fix Ishida's arm, Grimmjow's many and assorted injuries (assuming Isane doesn't do so first) and most importantly... Nell's mask.

Stark (and hopefully Haribel) will full a Heel Face Turn but Aizen will reveal he was expecting this all along and pull something out of his ass.

Once Aizen has retreated to... somewhere, Chad will stay behind in Hueco Mundo and study with Ganbantein, Nel and the other Espada who are sill standing to take his requisite level in badass.

More will be revealed about Division 0 and the Royal Realm.

Orihime is becoming a god (this will be saved for the climax).

I like it, I like it very much.

The daddy brigade (Isshin, Ryuuken) will appear amidst the fray and proceed to beat up all the bad guys before kicking those whiny sons of theirs in the face for being stupid.

What? I can dream.
Michellegrrlgamer4ever on September 2nd, 2009 07:32 am (UTC)
Here's what I think.

Ichigo will need to remind Orihime to heal Ishida.

Ichigo will BLAME HIMSELF. For pages and panels.

Orihime will BLAME HERSELF. For pages and panels.

Ishida will tell either Ichigo or Orihime or both that no one was to blame but he might remember that he was reluctant to take Orihime up to the top of the dome.

The guilt party will be interrupted by Yammy wanting to kill Four-Eyes.

Hey look! It's Unohana!

Well the last one is just because I want to see Unohana fight. XD
mikados on September 2nd, 2009 07:44 am (UTC)
Ishida is okay. I don't think it's even possible to die of blood-loss in Bleach. Just how many arms have been cut off and after which the character just move on? I really really REALLY want to see the healing scene. Ichigo and Orihime will emo a lot.

One thing for sure; there will be a lot of Kurosaki-kunning -__-
_debbiechan_: orihime 341_debbiechan_ on September 2nd, 2009 12:29 pm (UTC)

No, no, no! She's said her last Kurosaki-kun... well, for a bit yet. When she called out to the corpse that had to be intentional overkill on Kubo's part. She's got to say something else ... anything ... anything ... *looks weak* ... please?
Kylarakarenai on September 2nd, 2009 11:19 pm (UTC)
Here's the thing: what else can she call him? She doesn't know him well enough to call him by his first name, not that he would mind if she did. And Kurosaki-san just sounds.. odd. And Kurosaki.. too rude. o_O

Yes. I have actually thought about this.
カルラ (carla): ishihime: you + megirls_are_weird on September 2nd, 2009 12:56 pm (UTC)
"Hey look! It's Unohana!" --> BEST. OPTION. EVARR.

and onto the second topic... GAH, gin/ran vs. haku/chihiro?! dooooooomed. =(
~vkikay~vkikay on September 2nd, 2009 07:58 pm (UTC)
LOL a lot of people voted for ichigo angst galore, including me!!! hahaha orz and yes..it'll be panels and pages and pages. I bet he'll also refuse to use his mask.

And I predict a helluva more "Kurosaki-kun"s orz

tamzinconquistadora on September 3rd, 2009 03:54 pm (UTC)
I voted for Ichigo and Orihime blame themselves over and over... totally canon.
Unohana returns! Hells yeah.
But... I'm hoping Orihime defeats Yammy... just because she's been useless and needs to prove herself.
I'm also hoping she brings him back... if she doesn't, it's out of character and Kubo just doesn't want him back. I'll just have to live with 'all is fair in love and war' I guess. I at least want her to try.

... Ishida who? :P
secila80: Orihime determinedsecila80 on September 3rd, 2009 04:07 pm (UTC)
ORIHIME WILL PWN YAMMY!!! YESUSH! Please, Kubo, please. And pwnage with Tsubaki, not any of this reject everything stuff -- I WANT TSUBAKI PWNAGE!!!(Although if it does happen I will probably need to have my laptop repaired again -- my uncontrolled happy dancing would inevitably break the most expensive thing in my immediate proximity).

I really want us to return to Orihime in the process of healing Ishida. Mostly because I WANT THAT SCENE. Also because it seems like a good place to show us a lot of other things I want to see: Orihime's thougths about IchiThing's appearance and Ulquiorra's passing, a flashback to her having tried to save him and her failing/succeeding, Ishida's thoughts on everything, Ishida telling Orihime "something important", Ichigo overlooking the aftermath and having his super emo moment.

First down to the Yammy fight for a bit would be fine but when we get back to the top of the dome I want Orihime giving Ishida some healing and then Orihime pwning Yammy. (Uohana can fight the traitor person from the Zero Squad that is going to suddenly show up in HM offering Aizen his/her services)
yulieana on September 8th, 2009 08:49 pm (UTC)
I don't really see Ichigo and Orihime blaming each other for panels and panels. There might be some flashbacks, but nothing too fancy.

I want to see Orihime do something extraordinary, for a change. Pawning Yammy will be epic, but unlikely. "Kurosaki-kun!" bs is getting old. And she REALLY needs to do something about Ulquiorra.
