Announcing the Bleach Anime ED #23 Crazy AU Fic-a-Thon!  
I don't think I've ever seen a week when Bleach fans more excited about a new anime ED than about the latest chapter. That's just what seems to be happening, though, and I don't see the giddiness dying down. And why should it? After all, the ED gave us Espada street gangs, the Sexy Aizen Detective Agency, it's-a-bird, it's-a-plane, it's-Super-Don-Kanonji, Ishida hustling chickenhawks leering Arrancar at the pool hall, Pimp!Shunsui, Fro-Yoruichi, and Hanatarou in a maid's outfit; and that's only a sampling of the many delicious dishes on this particular smorgasbord.

So, what better way to celebrate the Best Bleach ED EVAR than by holding an AU Fic-a-Thon?

And who better to host it than bleachness? (Yes, I did ask _debbiechan_ and she told me it was A-OK and to post this.) :D



THIS IDEA IS PERTINENT TO MY INTERESTS. HOW DO I PARTICIPATE?

Simple. If you've got a story idea inspired by the images and happenings in the latest Bleach ED (that's #23 in case you're counting) just follow these easy directions:

1. Write your fic. (Having it beta-read is always a good idea, as people are more likely to read stuff that has decent spelling and grammar and such-like.)

2. Please use the following template to label your fic:

Author:
Title:
Rating:
Pairing:
Warnings:
Summary:

3. Post your fic to bleachness so that everyone can enjoy the fun. If your fic is longer than 100-200 words, PLEASE REMEMBER TO POST IT UNDER AN LJ CUT!

ARE THERE ANY LIMITATIONS TO WHAT I CAN WRITE?

All types and all ratings of fic are welcome. It can be slapstick comedy, light romance, dark and angsty, or just plain smexy. It can be gen, het, yaoi, or yuri or a combo of everything. All we ask is that you rate it appropriately and put the fic under a cut. The only restriction is that it has to related to or be inspired by the new Bleach ED.

HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO POST?

The Bleach ED AU Fic-a-Thon will run for as long as the new ED runs. That could be a few weeks or a few months, depending on what else the animators have planned.

WILL THERE BE VALUABLE PRIZES?

Nope, not this time! This Fic-a-Thon is solely to celebrate the cracky AU goodness of the new ED and to spread the creativity and enjoyment around.

I HAVEN'T SEEN THIS AWESOME ED YET. WHERE CAN I VIEW IT FOR INSPIRATION?

Right here:




SO, DOES THIS MEAN I CAN WRITE FIC ABOUT THE VIZARDS HAVING A FOOD FIGHT? OR VICTORIAN LADY-OF-THE-MANOR UNOHANA WITH CRAZY SERVANT ANTICS? OR A BARRAGAN/LOLY/MENOLY/CIRUCCI JAZZ CLUB FOURSOME? OR A PIMP!SHUNSUI/NANAO/LISA THREESOME? OR LONESOME DETECTIVE ULQUIORRA STANDING IN THE RAIN WAITING FOR THE WOMAN HE LOVES? OR RENJI BREAKING HIS NECK IN A FREAK SKATEBOARDING ACCIDENT?

Yes indeed you can. All that and more.

WHAT ABOUT ISHIDA GETTING GANGBANGEDGANGED UP ON ON A POOL TABLEIN A POOL HALL?

Oh heavens, yes! Especially that. :D

Any further questions? Ask them here.

Now go write some fic where all the hot Bleach guys are wearing suspenders and the gals are in long glittery dresses or bar-tender outfits!

ETA: If you want to leave a prompt for a fic you'd like to see, go ahead and post it here. No promises that all/any prompts will get written, but who knows, you might inspire someone?

*puts in request for "Ishida hustling chickenhawks leering Arrancar at the pool hall" fic*
nehalenia: ishida buttnehalenia on April 16th, 2010 04:13 am (UTC)
If there is a pool hall fic, it simply must include a line about 'racking balls'. XD (Preferably not Uryuu's, of course.)

DAMN YOU I was trying to limit myself to fanart only of the new ending but then you had to go and post this. D:

It had to be done.

OMG I hope all these prompts get used!
nehalenia: chad interp dancenehalenia on April 16th, 2010 04:14 am (UTC)
There is so much fodder for marvelous stuff in this ED. I hope every scene gets at least one fic.

Oh sounds fun.
incandescensincandescens on April 16th, 2010 12:22 am (UTC)
What a very excellent idea.

(I am convinced that Lisa bought Nanao's dress for her and deliberately picked something young, cute, and frilly.)
SilvaNoir: Orihimexilvrin on April 16th, 2010 12:32 am (UTC)
Oh how I wish I was a better writer.
Because I saw the ending and immediately thought of Baccano (the anime set in the early 1930s with immortal gangsters). and I loved that anime, and the Bleach people in that kind of setting... yes.
nehalenia: chad interp dancenehalenia on April 16th, 2010 05:34 pm (UTC)
If you don't feel like trying your hand at writing, you could always leave a prompt or two. ;)
shirafune6 on April 16th, 2010 12:36 am (UTC)
Is Szayel checking out Uryu?! XD Uryu looks so hot playing pool :D
nehalenia: ishida buttnehalenia on April 16th, 2010 04:16 am (UTC)
Everybody in that scene is checking out Uryuu. He's probably wiggling his butt at them as he leans over the table. (And yes, he does look damn fine right there.)
andrew_jpandrew_jp on April 16th, 2010 12:40 am (UTC)
I...sort of have a thing for women in men's clothes.

I'm busy at the moment, but I'll see if I can't whip up something for bartender!Harribel and the Amazon drunks eventually.

(Only the coolest characters wear bartending outfits. Right, Shizuo?)
nehalenia: daddy approvesnehalenia on April 16th, 2010 04:17 am (UTC)
I do believe that would be a most welcome addition. Like so many others, that scene is a fic just waiting to happen.

This is a wonderful idea!

oh gallant piglet,: wee!wonderaizome on April 16th, 2010 01:57 am (UTC)
Damn I wish I could write! I have an idea but I always ruin ideas by making them sound like research papers (not on purpose; it just always happens that way). *frets*

Would something in script or screenplay format be acceptable as fic?
nehalenia: burrito ichi ishinehalenia on April 16th, 2010 04:18 am (UTC)
Scripts and screenplays are a form of fiction, so I don't see why not. ;)

45¢ and an Almond Joy: Bleach: Urahara Raving Lollipopconjure_lass on April 16th, 2010 02:01 am (UTC)
I'm still somewhat disappointed that there was no Urahara in this ED. I have deep love for Grimmjow being a punk gansta kid though. DEEP LOVE. I may be forced to write it.
nehalenia: yoruichi godnehalenia on April 16th, 2010 04:21 am (UTC)
There were several rather glaring omissions in the ED but I don't see why they couldn't be written in as long they adhere to the scene they're put into. (I'm not sure exactly where I'd fit Urahara in, but there are lots of options. Manager of the singing girl group springs to mind. ;)

I hadn't seen the awesome ED yet. Thank you!!! Your fic-a-thon idea is genius.
