The Bleach "Be Nice" Meme  
silawen devised this great meme and I am sharing it with her permission. Following the recent shipping discussions, I thought it could be a fun, goodwill exercise (And challenge! Coming up with some of these answers was hard).

Choose:

5 characters you don't like.

1.
2.
3.
4.
5.

5 pairings you don't like.

6.
7.
8.
9.
10.

Now answer the questions truthfully! No cheating, no covering an insult with veiled attempts at a compliment, just be honest. (So no 'I like how stupid [character] is, because it means they won't interest my favourite character'.) And remember, 'be nice'!


1. What was the first thing you liked about (2)?

2. Of all the characters you could ship them with, who is your favourite to ship with (5)?

3. What is your favourite fic for (8)? (If you don't know one, try finding one that looks promising and post the link!)

4. What is (3)'s best quality?

5. If you were to write a positive story about (6), what would your focus be?

6. What makes (7) an interesting pairing?

7. What is (1)'s most memorable scene from canon?

8. (9) are getting married. Which writer could best write their wedding!fic? (If you don't know anyone, try finding someone whose work looks promising.)

9. What is (4)'s best physical attribute?

10. Explain what's great about (10) in a short summary.

11. Which of the first five would you most like to be like and why?

12. Which of the first five would you most like to date and why?

13. Which pairing interests you the most and why?

14. Which pairing would you choose to make canon if you had to choose one and why? (Remember, no veiled insults!)

15. I challenge you to write a 100 word drabble about any of these characters or pairings! (Focus on the character or pairing, don't make it into another pairing.) It's okay to answer the other questions and then come back to this one.


Finally, Happy New Year! And Peace to All Shippers on Earth!!!

Ooh, this one was hard. I tried as hard as I could to be nice, y'know ;)

Good for getting shippers OUT of their boxes :)

I'm confused, we're stating our most hated characters and pairings and saying nice things about them?

Exactly! But it's purely voluntary!

Answers
5 characters I don't like.

1. Ikkaku Madarame
2. Yamamoto
3. Hisagi
4. Isane
5. Kira

5 pairings you don't like.

6. Gin/Kira
7. Ishida/Orihime (Sorry, sorry!)
8. Hitsugaya/Matsumoto
9. Kira/Hisagi
10. Harribel/Stark

1. What was the first thing you liked about (2)? Okay, I loved his showdown with Ukitake and Kyoraku. All of a sudden he wasn't just 'wise old leader whose leadership is due to his wisdom' but 'wise old leader who can and will kick your freakin' ass'.

2. Of all the characters you could ship them with, who is your favourite to ship with (5)? Hinamori. Two damaged people helping one another to heal.

3. What is your favourite fic for (8)? (If you don't know one, try finding one that looks promising and post the link!) Oceans Apart by vicioux. It's sort of HitsuMoto by way of GinRan.

4. What is (3)'s best quality? HE IS INCREDIBLY HOT. His lack of confidence is endearing.

5. If you were to write a positive story about (6), what would your focus be? A oneshot in which Gin shows emotional vulnerability.

6. What makes (7) an interesting pairing? Ishida's such a White Knight. And so socially awkward. I like the thought of him silently but faithfully carrying a torch for Orihime. I love that he's always seemed to recognize the things that make her special.

7. What is (1)'s most memorable scene from canon? The moment where he reveals he has bankai.

8. (9) are getting married. Which writer could best write their wedding!fic? (If you don't know anyone, try finding someone whose work looks promising.) BRB with that one.

9. What is (4)'s best physical attribute? Her height.

10. Explain what's great about (10) in a short summary. They're both hollows, and powerful warriors, that were used and abused by Aizen. Harribel is focused and dedicated and Starrk is a slacker, but I think she would appreciate and value the loyalty and love he shows for Lilynette. And it would be nice for Starrk/Lilynette to have another person in their life/lives.

11. Which of the first five would you most like to be like and why? Isane. Her heart is in the right place and she works for such a supportive and knowing captain.

12. Which of the first five would you most like to date and why? Hisagi. HE IS INCREDIBLY HOT. He would treat you like a queen.

13. Which pairing interests you the most and why? Kira/Hisagi. Because I think it could bring out the best in both of them.

14. Which pairing would you choose to make canon if you had to choose one and why? (Remember, no veiled insults!) Ishida/Orihime. I like Shakespearean comedic endings--everbody gets married! And Orihime would be a good match for the honorable but prickly Ishida.

15. I challenge you to write a 100 word drabble about any of these characters or pairings! (Focus on the character or pairing, don't make it into another pairing.) It's okay to answer the other questions and then come back to this one. BRB with this.

(Anonymous) on December 31st, 2009 06:33 pm (UTC)
This is a difficult question for me to answer, since I don't invest so much thought into my pairings as to have any that I "Hate." Really, whether it be characters or pairings, there are only two types in all of bleach:

-The arrancar, and pairings with arrancar in them, whom I have an affinity for, and judge based on their merits.

-Those characters who are not arrancar, whom I can't really be bothered to form a decent opinion over.

Still, I'm not such a fanboy that I can't play along. Bear in mind that "hate" is a very strong term for how I regard the following, though:


1.) Gin Ichimaru
2.) Sosuke Aizen
3.) Grimmjow Jeagerjaquez
4.) Yammy Riyalgo
5.) Kenpachi Zaraki

6.) Yoruichi x Kisuke
7.) Ichigo x Orihime
8.) Renji x Rukia
9.) Ishida x Orihime
10.) really, I had to rack my brain to pretend that there were four pairings I didn't care for. >.< umm... Ichigo x Karin + Yuzu


1. What was the first thing you liked about (2)?

He's very composed and charismatic. I don't dislike Aizen's demeanor, I simply find his lack of depth to be disengaging.

2. Of all the characters you could ship them with, who is your favourite to ship with (5)?

Unohana. It would take someone with the patience of a saint and the strength of a bear to put up with Kenpachi.

3. What is your favourite fic for (8)? (If you don't know one, try finding one that looks promising and post the link!)

Umm... i don't read fanfiction, but true to the content of the question, I'll search for a promising one, and post it with my drabble later.

4. What is (3)'s best quality?

He's a very straightforward and honest character. Really the only thing that keeps me from liking Grimmjow is the fact that his is the most common personality in shonen manga. I don't have any particular faults with him as an individual.

5. If you were to write a positive story about (6), what would your focus be?

My focus would be on the fact that they really are very compatible friends, who work well together and share an irreplaceable bond. I dislike the tendency in fandom to try to turn every male-female partnership into a romance, but that doesn't mean I don't concede that there's a bond between them, even if I do quite sincerely believe it's a platonic one.

6. What makes (7) an interesting pairing?

Well... it certainly can't be argued that the two characters have an impact on each other...

7. What is (1)'s most memorable scene from canon?

His farewell hug to Rangiku, or cutting Hiyori in half, depending on whether I'm in the mood for mush or blood.

8. (9) are getting married. Which writer could best write their wedding!fic? (If you don't know anyone, try finding someone whose work looks promising.)

Wow... these questions really drive home my lack of knowledge about fanfiction. >.< I'll answer this question when I answer the above and 15

9. What is (4)'s best physical attribute?

He spent most of the manga in close proximity to Ulquiorra. It stands to reason that some of the aura of badassery that Ulquiorra constantly emits helped to make Yammy seem cooler as well, so I'll go with that.

10. Explain what's great about (10) in a short summary.

umm... if you're a fan of three-ways and incest... it can't be beat?

11. Which of the first five would you most like to be like and why?

Gin. I rather enjoy the idea of having fangirls numbering in the thousands.

12. Which of the first five would you most like to date and why?

Grimmjow, because if I've got to go gay, I may as well do it in style.

13. Which pairing interests you the most and why?

Of the five I listed? Ishida x Orihime is a ship I actually have no beef with, and I only listed it because I couldn't think of five, and wanted to seem all controversial and stuff.

14. Which pairing would you choose to make canon if you had to choose one and why? (Remember, no veiled insults!)

Urahara x Yoruichi, simply because their getting together wouldn't destroy my OTP, and wouldn't free Ichigo up to potentially ruin my OTP. Can't say I'd like it, though.
manonlechat: Gin_Ichimarumanonlechat on December 31st, 2009 06:55 pm (UTC)
Love all your answers (and totally agree with #2). WHUT??!! YOU DISLIKE GIN!??! OMGWTF IS WRONG WITH YOU????!!!! ;D

"Hate" is a very strong term to describe my feelings, too (except when I finished this meme I went back and realized that crap, I'd left off Hiyori. I do come pretty damn close to hating Hiyori.)

I dont read fic~
4. What is (3)'s best quality?
Britishness

Their Arguements?
6. What makes (7) an interesting pairing?
The fact its almost canon
7. What is (1)'s most memorable scene from canon?
Probably killing Allon
8. (9) are getting married. Which writer could best write their wedding!fic? (If you don't know anyone, try finding someone whose work looks promising.)

Orihime x Ichigo idk it just does
14. Which pairing would you choose to make canon if you had to choose one and why? (Remember, no veiled insults!)

15. I challenge you to write a 100 word drabble about any of these characters or pairings! (Focus on the character or pairing, don't make it into another pairing.) It's okay to answer the other questions and then come back to this one.

Aaroniero has one of the hardest names to spell ever and he is also the only espada who is (well was) a Gillian, the lowest rank of the menos. He was also the first espada to die. He had a funny face, he had two balls in a jar of what appeared to be strawberry jam. One spoke like a little girl and one spoke like a big manly man. Rukia killed him which was bitchass awesome, he was a d**k who pretended to be Kaien Shiba. But also that fight was awesome because rukia looked pretty damn hot in the cape, also Aaroniero was the 9th espada in sosuke Aizen's army and the only one left from the original espada. He was the weakest espada.

I'm curious as to why, if you don't mind my asking. I don't intend on trying to sway you.

Interesting. I'm Game
5 characters you don't like.
(this is hard bc I love most Bleach characters)

1. Mayuri
2. Don Kanjoni
3. Gatennbeinne (sp? The fro guy who fought Chad in HM)
4. Rubodon (the TREE)
5. Tousen (he was a meanie to my Koma-chan)

5 pairings you don't like.

6. Ichigo/Orihime
7. Gin/Kira
8. Aizen/Momo
9. Grimmjow/Orihime
10. Mayuri/Ishida

Now answer the questions truthfully! No cheating, no covering an insult with veiled attempts at a compliment, just be honest. (So no 'I like how stupid [character] is, because it means they won't interest my favourite character'.) And remember, 'be nice'!


1. What was the first thing you liked about (2)?

Eh, I thought about the American Ghostbusters show and thought Kubo was making a nice joke about this genre. It was funny for a bit.

2. Of all the characters you could ship them with, who is your favourite to ship with (5)?

Haha, actually I have a BL tape with Ishida's seiyuu and Tousen's seiyuu having hawt sex so it would be Tousen/Ishida

3. What is your favourite fic for (8)? (If you don't know one, try finding one that looks promising and post the link!)

No. That's too hard and I'm short on time.

4. What is (3)'s best quality?

He helped Chad.

5. If you were to write a positive story about (6), what would your focus be?

Not much BUT I've always wanted to write a fic with them as a love consumated and then gone wrong--some seriously dark, not fluffy IchiOri fic. It would be dramatic.

6. What makes (7) an interesting pairing?

It's demented and sick. The betrayal mixed with captain/co-captain devotion is dark and fascinating.
OMG, the "come with me, Kira" scene when Gin lures Kira out of jail and appears to be his savior when we all know he's just using the poor thing.

7. What is (1)'s most memorable scene from canon?

The "perfection" speech after he beat Szayel.

8. (9) are getting married. Which writer could best write their wedding!fic? (If you don't know anyone, try finding someone whose work looks promising.)

I have no idea. I can't imagine. I stall right here. Okay, I'll go with incandescens bc she can write anything.

9. What is (4)'s best physical attribute?

Okaaaay, he's a very talented tree that can reproduce parts of himself into warriors.

10. Explain what's great about (10) in a short summary.

rape!pr0n can be sexy sometimes

11. Which of the first five would you most like to be like and why?

Gatenbeinne bc I would be NEAR CHAD.

12. Which of the first five would you most like to date and why?

Tousen. He's got the hottest body.

13. Which pairing interests you the most and why?

Aizen/Momo because I expect a canon resolution.

14. Which pairing would you choose to make canon if you had to choose one and why? (Remember, no veiled insults!)

Aizen/Momo because that would be freaking weird! I can't see the other pairings remotely happening but this one would mean Aizen turns good in the end or Momo goes bad but either way, the two end up with Momo losing her cutesy virginity and that would be dark and weird!

15. I challenge you to write a 100 word drabble about any of these characters or pairings! (Focus on the character or pairing, don't make it into another pairing.) It's okay to answer the other questions and then come back to this one.

No, I'm too busy. I'll do challenge drabbles some other day.

Great idea!
5 characters you don't like.

1.Gin Ichimaru
2.Toushiro Hitsugaya
3.Hiyori
4.Soi Fon
5.Mashiro

5 pairings you don't like.

6.Kensei/Mashiro
7.Grimmjow/Neliel
8.Ichigo/Orihime
9.Ishida/Orihime
10.Aizen/Ulquiorra

1. What was the first thing you liked about (2)?
I liked when he got sheepish and flustered in his convo with Hiyori in Karakura. I thought he'd be grumpy, but instead he was cute when he showed those moods.

2. Of all the characters you could ship them with, who is your favourite to ship with (5)?
Uhhh, I'll have to make up something on the fly... Grimmjow. She'd annoy him, but he'd be unable to kill her because she's strong.

3. What is your favourite fic for (8)? (If you don't know one, try finding one that looks promising and post the link!)
http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5145142/1/Late_Night_Fears
Cheating because it's more Hichigo/Orihime than Orihime/Ichigo.

4. What is (3)'s best quality?
She is a strong warrior.

5. If you were to write a positive story about (6), what would your focus be?
The fact that Mashiro can depend on Kensei.

6. What makes (7) an interesting pairing?
I think that GJ would remind Neliel of Nnoitra, and it would be fascinating to see how she learns to see him as his own person and build an individual relationship with him.

7. What is (1)'s most memorable scene from canon?
When he says goodbye to Rangiku.

8. (9) are getting married. Which writer could best write their wedding!fic? (If you don't know anyone, try finding someone whose work looks promising.)
Debbiechan! Vesperh would be cool, too. <3

9. What is (4)'s best physical attribute?
Her face. It's very cute.

10. Explain what's great about (10) in a short summary.
Ack! Uhh...
It could be an interesting exploration of why Aizen holds Ulq in such high esteem (as a servant) and what draws Ulquiorra to Aizen.

11. Which of the first five would you most like to be like and why?
Hitsugaya. He has cool powers, is dutiful and really cares about his friends.

12. Which of the first five would you most like to date and why?
Toushiro. He can be cute and he's really protective and caring. I now that he'd go all out for me if I needed his help.

13. Which pairing interests you the most and why?
GJ/Neliel. The reason's already under 6., but I also think that GJ might mellow out and become less violent through Neliel.

14. Which pairing would you choose to make canon if you had to choose one and why? (Remember, no veiled insults!)
Grimmjow/Neliel. Nnoitra's dead anyway and it wouldn't come in the way of Ulquihime. The other reasons as under 6. and 13.

15. I challenge you to write a 100 word drabble about any of these characters or pairings! (Focus on the character or pairing, don't make it into another pairing.) It's okay to answer the other questions and then come back to this one.

I'm not really a writer, but perhaps I'll try it later...

5 characters you don't like.

1. Aizen (I used to love him though)
2. Renji
3. Hitsugaya
4. Zommari Leroux
5. Jinta

5 pairings you don't like.

6. Renji/Rukia
7. Ichigo/Orihime
8. Ichigo/Hitsugaya
9. Ichigo/Nell
10. Hitsugaya/Rangiku

1. What was the first thing you liked about (2)?
Renji - When his long glorious red air fell.

2. Of all the characters you could ship them with, who is your favourite to ship with (5)? Jinta/Ururu (I think her name was?)

3. What is your favourite fic for (8)? Hitsugaya/Ichigo Just found this --> http://community.livejournal.com/ichihitsu/107844.html#cutid1

4. What is (3)'s best quality? Hitsugaya - He likes to keep busy and get work done, unlike his VC, so that's a nice trait.

5. If you were to write a positive story about (6), what would your focus be? Renji/Rukia - On Renji and his feelings and maybe doing something sweet for Rukia.

6. What makes (7) an interesting pairing? Ichigo/Orihime - It has an underlying bitter sweetness.

7. What is (1)'s most memorable scene from canon? Aizen - God, when he was on top of that hill and took the hougyoku out of Rukia and shit and when he broke his glasses. Best moments of Bleach, ever.

8. (9) are getting married. Which writer could best write their wedding!fic? Ichigo/Nell - I'm just gonna pick debbiechan.

9. What is (4)'s best physical attribute? Zommari - His eyes.

10. Explain what's great about (10) in a short summary. Hitsugaya/Rangiku - I like how Rangiku helped him as a kid, and I love how they are funny together. I also like how Rangiku can read Hitsugaya.

11. Which of the first five would you most like to be like and why? Hitsugaya, because he likes to get things done, and he's not reckless and he's not dead yet.

12. Which of the first five would you most like to date and why? Aizen. Just ONE date. Because I'm sure he'd be nice and romantic.

13. Which pairing interests you the most and why? Hitsugaya/Rangiku, because I like them as a duo and a team.

14. Which pairing would you choose to make canon if you had to choose one and why? Ichigo/Nell. Because I'm sure they would work out well if they got to know each other and Nell stayed an adult.

15. I challenge you to write a 100 word drabble about any of these characters or pairings!

Reading was always a nice hobby for him. He gazed at the words through the glasses he didn't really need. Soon this veil will uncover and reading would be something that he would miss. He'll miss the grass he was perched on and the warm breeze. The cherry blossom tree that he was sitting next too was in full bloom. Pink was a color he was always fond of as well as green. Blue was the sky in Soul Society. Soon he will have minions that represent the only things he will miss about this place. Only time will pass.

I guess there can be good out of the things you hate.

(Had to wrack my brain for this, too.)

6. Ichigo/Orihime
7. Ishida/Orihime
8. Grimmjow/Ulquiorra
9. Ikkaku/Mizuho
10. Urahara/Yoruichi

Now answer the questions truthfully! No cheating, no covering an insult with veiled attempts at a compliment, just be honest. (So no 'I like how stupid [character] is, because it means they won't interest my favourite character'.) And remember, 'be nice'!

1. What was the first thing you liked about (2)?
I loved Mashiro's very first spaz-out. Cracked me up like hell.

2. Of all the characters you could ship them with, who is your favourite to ship with (5)?
Do I have to...? *pouts* Well, Ulquiorra is the only candidate, as far as I can see, despite the "Hot Skitty on Wailord Action" factor.

3. What is your favourite fic for (8)? (If you don't know one, try finding one that looks promising and post the link!)

Don't know if this counts as 'shippy GrimmUlqui, but A Dearth of Answers.

4. What is (3)'s best quality?

His maturity...?

5. If you were to write a positive story about (6), what would your focus be?

One of the other four lifetimes, perhaps.

6. What makes (7) an interesting pairing?

Ishida's soft spot for her, and their nerdy "mating rituals", to quote that one icon.

7. What is (1)'s most memorable scene from canon?

"Sayonara", of course. That was epic.

8. (9) are getting married. Which writer could best write their wedding!fic? (If you don't know anyone, try finding someone whose work looks promising.)

Drawing a blank... I don't think she's written it before, but Enchantable, maybe?

9. What is (4)'s best physical attribute?

His eyes. Unf unf.

10. Explain what's great about (10) in a short summary.

Their unshakable trust in each other... and their interactions while Yoruichi is in her cat form. ;)

11. Which of the first five would you most like to be like and why?

Toushirou has the least screwed-up situation, I think.

12. Which of the first five would you most like to date and why?

Retro!Aizen.

13. Which pairing interests you the most and why?

Of the above? Grimmjow/Ulquiorra. I like their dynamic in canon, and admittedly, the 'ship produces some crazyhot fanart.

14. Which pairing would you choose to make canon if you had to choose one and why? (Remember, no veiled insults!)

Of the above, Ikkaku/Mizuho. As much as I love them, I'm less bothered by Ikkaku/Yumichika sinking than I am about Ulquiorra/Orihime, Grimmjow/Ichigo or Yoruichi/Soifon sinking.

15. I challenge you to write a 100 word drabble about any of these characters or pairings! (Focus on the character or pairing, don't make it into another pairing.) It's okay to answer the other questions and then come back to this one.

Mebbeh later.

Naming characters/pairings I don’t like was so much harder than I thought it’d be. This is an interesting meme!

5 characters you don't like.

1. Orihime
2. Barragan
3. Yamamoto
4. Yammy
5. Tousen

5 pairings you don't like.

6. Ichigo/Orihime
7. Kensei/Mashiro
8. Hitsugaya/Hinamori
9. Yoruichi/Soi Fon
10. Ichigo/Tatsuki

1. What was the first thing you liked about (2)?
His awesome resurreccion. His character design is very fitting and his ability of respira is pretty awesome too.

2. Of all the characters you could ship them with, who is your favourite to ship with (5)?
I don’t even know any ships that involves Tousen! I guess... Tousen/Komamura but only in strictly friendship terms.

3. What is your favourite fic for (8)? (If you don't know one, try finding one that looks promising and post the link!)
Ah, I used to ship HitsuHina, but haven’t read any fanfic about them.
The 87th District looks okay. It has a lot of reviews? IDK, don’t blame me if it’s not good (I didn’t actually read it, just playing along with the meme...).

4. What is (3)'s best quality?
He has an iron will. Which makes him a good leader. That’s why he’s soutaichou, right?

5. If you were to write a positive story about (6), what would your focus be?
It would be about Orihime reaching an understanding about Ichigo and his hollow and how he’s the same person inside no matter what his appearance is on the outside (i.e., hollow form, vaizard mask, etc.) so that she isn’t afraid of him anymore.

6. What makes (7) an interesting pairing?
They were former captain and vice captain of the same division. I’m always a sucker for captain/vice captain relationships XD And when Mashiro asked Kensei if he was going to avenge her (fighting Wonderweiss), that was pretty cute. I think they work well together as a team even if they appear to always be at odds with each other.

7. What is (1)'s most memorable scene from canon?
I loved the scene near the beginning of the series where Orihime first discovers her powers to protect Tatsuki. That was one of her most touching scenes and it showcased her relationship and friendship with Tatsuki and Orihime’s inner strength very well.

8. (9) are getting married. Which writer could best write their wedding!fic? (If you don't know anyone, try finding someone whose work looks promising.)
I don’t know any fanfic writers who write wedding fics, sorry!

9. What is (4)'s best physical attribute?
He’s big. Really big.

10. Explain what's great about (10) in a short summary.
Ah, Ichigo and Tatsuki. Well, they are childhood friends and once upon a time Tatsuki used to beat Ichigo up in karate. I think my favorite moment between Ichigo and Tatsuki was that extra chapter Kubo wrote (it’s in the SOULs book) where Tatsuki finds Ichigo at the riverbank and Tatsuki reflects on how different Ichigo has become. Yet Tatsuki is still willing to stick with Ichigo through thick and thin, which is very admirable. (Ichigo, stop shunning her!!!)

11. Which of the first five would you most like to be like and why?
Orihime, because even though she has flaws right now, she still has a lot of potential to grow. (And everybody has flaws, don’t they?) Plus she’s a really compassionate and sweet girl.

12. Which of the first five would you most like to date and why?
hmmm, Tousen? It would make for some interesting philosophical talk XD

13. Which pairing interests you the most and why?
Kensei/Mashiro. Like I said earlier, I like a lot of Captain/Vice Captain relationships, but I don’t know why I haven’t been attracted to this pairing much before. Kensei/Mashiro reminds me a little itsy bit of HitsuMatsu, a pairing that I love.

14. Which pairing would you choose to make canon if you had to choose one and why? (Remember, no veiled insults!)
Kensei/Mashiro. Well. Why not?

LOL, it wouldn't fit in one comment XD

15. I challenge you to write a 100 word drabble about any of these characters or pairings! (Focus on the character or pairing, don't make it into another pairing.) It's okay to answer the other questions and then come back to this one.

Okay, so I cheated for this one. I wrote this drabble months ago. And it’s not really romantic, either, but it will do for now.

The Sky Was Falling

Hinamori thought that the sky itself was falling, crashing down around her head, and all she could do was watch. Hitsugaya had that look on his face, so sinister that it frightened her into muteness as he commanded his ice dragon, with its crimson eyes, to wreak havoc on the battlefield. She had never before seen him as violent as he was now.

Toshiro? Hinamori whispered, and miraculously Hitsugaya heard her above the roar of his anger. He visibly blanched, suddenly aware that he didn’t want her to see him like this. He appeared remorseful: Please forget you saw this.

15. I challenge you to write a 100 word drabble about any of these characters or pairings! (Focus on the character or pairing, don't make it into another pairing.) It's okay to answer the other questions and then come back to this one.
Barragan and Oomaeda went skipping through the meadow. Oomaeda was sad, because the flowers were dying everywhere they went. So he pulled out an early birthday present for the segunda Espada: a gigantic hazmat suit. "Happy Birthday, Barragan!" he said with a nervous smile. "Thank you, my little love dumpling," the sketelon said, as he tried to get the awkward suit over his billowing robes. Is this 100 words yet? I have no idea, and I'm way too lazy to go back and count. Pretend it's 100 words.

5 pairings you don't like.

Now answer the questions truthfully! No cheating, no covering an insult with veiled attempts at a compliment, just be honest. (So no 'I like how stupid [character] is, because it means they won't interest my favourite character'.) And remember, 'be nice'!

1. What was the first thing you liked about (2)?
His complete disregard for others. I love when villains are villainy :3

2. Of all the characters you could ship them with, who is your favourite to ship with (5)?
Shinji, I suppose. I don't ship them, but it's canon.

3. What is your favourite fic for (8)? (If you don't know one, try finding one that looks promising and post the link!)
x

4. What is (3)'s best quality?
His determination and adorableness!

5. If you were to write a positive story about (6), what would your focus be?
I don't know if this qualifies, but I would probably have them both fantasizing about Ichigo, and finding comfort in one another.

6. What makes (7) an interesting pairing?
The "forbidden romance" aspect. Aizen and Ichigo would never allow it.

7. What is (1)'s most memorable scene from canon?
The manga chapter where all she said was Kurosaki-kun....Kurosaki-kun. I know it isn't being nice to say that, but it really is most memorable to me.

8. (9) are getting married. Which writer could best write their wedding!fic? (If you don't know anyone, try finding someone whose work looks promising.)
x

Hitsugaya, I dislike him the least. He IS adorable and badass.

Again, Hitsugaya. He is not a bad person at all, and would treat me well. And he's cute.

13. Which pairing interests you the most and why?
10. Probably because I love both of these characters separately.

14. Which pairing would you choose to make canon if you had to choose one and why? (Remember, no veiled insults!)
7. I feel that if I tried to explain this one, I'd end up insulting someone =/

Wow, this was hard. I tried my best not insult the first 2, because that isn't the point of this meme. And I'm not too huge on fics lately, so I skipped those questions. I hope that's ok :)

Characters

3: What is your favourite fic for (8)?
I have yet to find a fic where its worth going beyond the summary

4: What is (3)'s best quality?
His loyalty and willingness to stand up for his friends against vastly overwhelming odds. I only dislike him because he's a pain in the ass to play in Shattered Blade and story mode forces you to do so.

5: If you were to write a positive story about (6), what would your focus be?
Orihime overcoming her own securities and trying to express her feelings more proactively.

6: What makes (7) an interesting pairing?
Being dysfunctional to a level only surpassed by 8)

Conceptually the whole beauty and the beast aspect of Unohana x Kenpachi is the most interesting.

14: Which pairing would you choose to make canon if you had to choose one and why?
... Can't pick one. Mostly because most of the characters involved I prefer in different ships. Maybe Renji x Tatsuki

15: I challenge you to write a 100 word drabble about any of these characters or pairings!
Don't do drabbles. I have problems writing anything less than a thousand words.
kohi_no_torakohi_no_tora on December 31st, 2009 11:27 pm (UTC)
D'oh! skipped 10. Well here goes

I think its interesting because they both exist in a similar role relative to Ichigo but at different stages in his life. That and they can reminisce about how both of them beat up Ichigo the first time they met.

Ulquiorra/Rukia: To live I hope this works XD;; It's more then 100 because I got into lol

Rukia sighed as she walked into the the medical tent that had been set up by Captain Unohana and the rest of the 4th division. She tried hard to get the sent of death and burning skin out of her nose and she walked by the "beds" of sheets and anything anyone could find.

She had something she wanted to do, someone she needed to see first before she could see her nakama.. It was important and the only thing that kept her legs moving and eyes before her, because she could not look at the sides.

It wasn't before long when she saw him, slumped slightly on the ground, his massive wings (she wasn't sure why he hadn't gone back to his "regular" form) still up but also slumped. Rukia walked closer to him, her lips moving upwards slighly as she said his name.

"Ulquiorra Cifer?" the words came out smooth and surprised herself by using his first name; But that's all she really knew him by.

He didn't make any notice that he heard her, until she saw him look over his shoulder slight at her, acknowledging her in his own subdued way.

Rukia looked down, her hands shaking as she sat down beside him, touching his arm lightly. Ulquiorra made no move and still looking far out at the wall, lost in his own world.

She made no movement, because all she could was sit here beside him and wait for him to come back and finally live.
manonlechat: Ulquiorra_Cifermanonlechat on January 1st, 2010 04:48 pm (UTC)
Oh, I loved loved loved the image of crumpled but still released Ulquiorra. There's something more poignant about him being in his most powerful state while injured and immobile. He feels like a crushed butterfly. :(

Great work.
