I will have ALL YOUR PR0TOBER DRABBLES (with the exception of jaina's which is a novelette) by this Monday or I can't call myself a crazy fangirl anymore1
Speaking of Pr0ntober, I enjoyed it so much. Need to rec these two following drabbles by firstmidnight and shinigamikender So many talented RP-bred writers out there. I love to watch the fantastic prolific output from people like who pay attention to canon characterization. Every now and then one of them lands a full perfect 10 dismount with a short piece and last week, these girls each did it. And I was so happy that one of these diamond drabbles was written for me!

I'm still flailing but I'm not as wired as I was when the spoiler pix started coming out. The mini-raw is out at BA and I'm very impressed with how the fast-cuts work panel to panel. Not disorienting just brilliant--one has to wonder why Kubo doesn't use this super-charged pace more often!
I was SO WRONG about the SS rescue not taking place and Ichigo needing another power-up and have never been happier to be wrong! Every page of this chapter was blatant fanservice but oh no one can serve the fans like Kubo. The color spread was a shippy delight and the whole chapter was Shinigami love. Byakuya wins the portrait of the week with his dark glare. Mayuri wins freak of the year with his new look.
I've caught my breath over all the mad scientists hovering over Ishida's dissectable body by now... Despite the humiliation potential in a Mayuri/Szayel face off for Ishida, this can only mean further character development for my favorite character, right? NEMU is there (I squeed for the show of each and every vice captain, even though I knew they were going to be there--Kubo knows how to panel grand entrances) and maybe she'll show mercy on our Quincy again and heal him so he can flee the scene. That's my wish, anyway. Although it's more likely we're going to be subject to years of fancy tricks by the mad scientists with Ishida looking helplessly on.....
Ohh, the color spread HQ is out. Looks like Ishida and Orihime are both wearing nametags? The embroidery on Ishida's pocket made him look like he was wearing a geek pocket protector but its a nametag.... like you use in hospitals....
That color spread so demands ficcage!
Ugh.... I have so many things RL and Fandom to finish on my to-do list before I can even think about that fi
