Weekend Fanworks Post - 21 May 2011  
Hello bleachness! As a general lurker of this comm, I decided to come out of my veil for this weekend with a request for the lovely denizens of this community. I would like to request some Ishida/Orihime fanfiction recs. I'm afraid that I'm not as active in the Bleach fandom as I am in other fandoms (not from a lack of trying, but I can't seem to write for Bleach to save my life), and I'm not quite sure where to look or what to look for, so I turn to the fans for advice. Please link me in the comment on this post to some of your favorite IshiHime fanfics; I'm open to all genres and ratings, and smut is both welcomed and encouraged.

Of course, since this is the Weekend Fanworks Post, don't let my request stop you from replying to this post. Feel free to share all other works in the comments as well!

Re: IshiHime Fanfic Recs ↴
I wholeheartedly recommend Splinter, with a few caveats:

- you have to be able to be okay with vague Ishida/Orihime and other pairings
- you have to be a sucker for angst

... those are some pretty big caveats. But if it still sounds like it might be something you'd like, I'd say go for it. The characterization is excellent, especially for Orihime.

I'm okay with both of those caveats! I love characterization in fanfics, so that entices me to check it out. Right now I'm getting ready to head for work, but I'm going to read this when I get home. ♥

Thank you so much!

Cool! Let me know if you enjoy it. :)

I read it before I went to bed last night, and it broke my hearts to pieces. I want to talk about it, but it's so bittersweet and an absolutely brilliant story that I'd hate to spoil it for anyone passing by.

I will say, I love the way its constructed. From a writer's standpoint, the long, simple lines and very sporadic paragraphs give a good emotional feel to it. Thank you again for recommending this, it's already a favorite.
shinebunny: feyshinebunny on May 22nd, 2011 06:05 pm (UTC)
I understand completely. :) I'm just really glad you enjoyed it as much as I did - it's one of my favorite fics, and I was happy that I got to rec it here.

Here's one I've written: Waiting Outside

I've also included them in other series and WIPs, but at the moment they're not the main focus in any of them. If you don't mind other couples being mentioned a lot, I can link you to the story with them at yokan_fic, and the series I have that includes one-sided Ishida/Orihime which eventually becomes Ishida/Orihime (I just haven't written anything for the series with them).

My friend thiscanbegin wrote Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You and since she's my best friend I must share.

Let's see...I have a recs tag at this journal, if you want to browse through it. Not all my recs are Bleach but most are, but I also rec, like, millions of pairings, so if you waant to read other stuff it's good. The link is here.

And finally, I take requests. Right now I'm fulfilling the bids that I got for help_japan (I have two WIPs started and one fic to write after that), but when I'm done I'll go back to writing from my request post. You can find that here and leave up to five requests. As long as you don't want NC-17 I'll write just about anything for that pairing.

Thank you so much! I'm always happy to read fanfic, so I'll take anything and everything. I'll also definitely give your recs tag a look-through; IshiHime is my favorite, but I'm also open for more pairings to read.

I'd feel really guilty about requesting, but when your plate is a little more empty and you'd like prompts, I wouldn't mind leaving a couple. ♥ Just the fact that you offered your request post makes me flattered, so thank you again.

Over at yokan_fic, an AU I have built up that goes AU around 392 and has...well, a whole bunch of UC pairings, two fics specifically have Ishida/Orihime scenes (and they both happen to be multiparts): It's The End Of Our World As We Know It and A Very Soul Society Christmas. I probably won't write them too much in that series, but I usually post those stories up at kurosaki_clinic and bleach_het (a very good community to follow) so if you watch them you'll probably see them pop up there.

My other series A Thousand Suns so far has Ishida-centric one-sided Ishida/Orihime, but as soon as I finish the WIP that sets up the new threat for the series I'll probably take a prompt I've already been given and write it for that series.

And go ahead and request! I have a text file with all the requests on it so I can write when I'm not online, which is usually Wednesdays. If I finish the two WIPs (which I may do this week) I'm going to hold off on the last fic and write some IchiHime and IshiHime and RenRuki stuff for a bit because I'm still trying to figure out how to do Ukitake & Shunsui bromance that isn't an academy days story.

OKAY UM, pretending I am bold enough to do this...! This isn't IshiHime, I'm sorry ):.

But I wrote a quick Ishida-centric thing. Lol, it's pretentious, 2nd-Person POV & present tense. A spin on some childhood moments, I guess. Ryuuken's around, mentions of some others:

Went and read it, and I must say that you are a genius.

I was wary when I first read it was in second person, but that just makes the story all the more wonderful.

The fact that you had it be a little kid Uryuu makes it that much more powerful.

The little cameos from the other characters was done masterfully, especially Soken's.

And then, there's of course, the wonderful dynamic between Ryuken and Uryu. I could definitely see this kind of childhood leading to the bitterness the younger Ishida feels as a young adult. The working to try and please his father, the copying him, the wearing his clothes and smelling his scent...all of that screams a want to be noticed, praised, loved. And you go through the entire story thinking Ryuken is the evilest character in the entire series, and then you read the final paragraph, and you just lean back and go "whoa."

Well done.

Whoa, that feedback! Thank you so much.

(I keep editing, sorry!)

Haha, normally I'm very about second person. In fact, this was born of a 1-sentence challenge, and the sentence that birthed it was in third person, past tense!

The little cameos from the other characters was done masterfully, especially Soken's.

I really appreciate that;;, I was pretty sure about Souken's but however I look at it, I think of the other cameos, especially Orihime's, as the weakest bits.

It's obviously all a lot of headcanon, but when I read the flashback during Ishida's fight with Mayuri, when he's crying with Souken and remembering speaking to Ryuuken... I am always hugely struck by the impression that Ryuuken just doesn't look at him. He's lecturing him for seeing Souken, something that ties into the Quincy business and eventually leads to such a severe fracture that Uryuu moves out, but his eyes never leave the page. And it isn't the first time the kid's deliberately disobeyed him about this, but he can't be bothered to look up! Lol, he even calls his father "that old man" -- coming from the guy who eventually snipes at Uryuu for calling HIM "Ryuuken"... anyway, Uryuu looks really uncomfortable, really small, and only at the very end, when he finally dares ask why Ryuuken hates being a Quincy, and Ryuuken (sort of) lies and answers, does Ryuuken look at him, and it's so cold.

Mind, I don't think Ryuuken's the epitome of evil or some hugely abusive awful dad, just that he... didn't really know what to do. Sort of.

sdlfkds my tl;dr aside, thank you again! I'm really glad you enjoyed it.
