Title: Illusions in Which She Drowned Herself
Characters/Pairing: Inoue Orihime, Ishida Uryuu; IshiHime
Genre: angst, romance
Word Count: ~4200
Summary: "Another man’s name lived and died on the princess’s lips like a prayer turned ritualistic chant; while he, on the other side of sanity, strove in desperation to rescue her as she slid into illusory blindness."
Note: Gah, I'm so sorry. I should have written something...happier for Ishida's birthday but it seems like I can only write sad, angsty stories. The first section was inspired by a title page in the manga that featured Ishida (I can't find it right now!). Part of this is set post-Winter War. I agonized over this fic and spent a lot of time on it, wish I could have done it earlier so that it could be better but it is what it is. It's my first time writing either Orihime and Ishida and so I just realized how hard they are to write. haha.
Anyway, hope you like it, _debbiechan_! Thank you for creating such a great community. Happy birthday to you and Ishida!!!
Fake cut to my lj!
