[livejournal.com profile] hallowd wrote a fricking awesome ship manifesto for Ichigo/Rukia/Renji here and it is criminal that it only has three comments, one of which came from my dumb ass.

To head off another slow day, I offer up my brain: give me a prompt/character/pairing/whatever and I'll write a sentence or few of fic. Please only fandoms I know at least SOMETHING about. RP prompts okay too.

I don't think I want to remember. Because once upon a time, I would never have a conveniently-arranged clip show of all the times Rukia's used her shikai to whip ass in Bleach:

And now I do!

eta: and this AMV too! I kinda dig it, even though Britney Spears + Bleach is not a combination I would normally consider. Maybe it's because half this video is about Rukia's sword spirit beating the crap out of Ichigo, which makes me LOL like a sociopath.

So Bleach was awesome this week. No, the anime. No, the filler anime. I don't get it either!!!

Things I loved in this week's episode: )

The animation is nothing to write home about--what else is new--but I was thoroughly entertained. Watch out for rains of frogs and oceans of blood, because Bleach filler is great and nothing makes sense anymore.

I realized that I REALLY need to post more about what is actually going on in my life because I have sucked at that. (Not that there's much exciting going on, but just so long-distance friends are in the loop.)

But not right now, because I lj from my phone during the workday and long posts are a pain. So I'll just say that it's weirding me out that despite skipping episodes for months, I am enjoying the new Bleach filler arc. Almost as much as the manga, actually; at least the anime has Rukia lately. I am such a shameless Rukiawife.

In random rec news, I recently finished the three-volume Uzumaki manga and it is creepy as fuck. I dig it. Two thumbs up.

Friending Meme

I suppose I don't need to pimp it since all of you are friends with me already--wait, what's that? People might want to use the meme to find other friends? It's not all about me?

effervescible: (ichiruki - worst fan evah [tenebris])
This was not my idea.

But I fully endorsed it once it was suggested.

Anyone who thinks this wish was too frivolous for the shrine should check out some of the other stuff hung up there.
effervescible: (Default)
Or maybe just a thought—I don't think it really qualifies as theory. Cut for this week's chapter spoilers )

Just a thought. I fully expect KT to bust out with some surprising moves for at least part of whatever happens next.
effervescible: (ichiruki - worst fan evah [tenebris])
So one of the reasons Ichigo/Rukia reached the top of my OTP pile, Bleach or otherwise, is because the pairing hits my equality kink really, really hard. Before anything else, they're partners and friends. At their best, they balance each other out quite well; at their worst, they're kicking and yelling at the other one to get back into balance.

So from there, when it comes to fic and future desires for canon, it's no surprise that I really love seeing Rukia rescue Ichigo. The chapter where she flash-freezes Grimmjow before Ichigo gets shanked is one of my favorites. But since it is equality, for me it goes both ways; I don't only want Rukia to do the saving as a way of making up for lamer shonen heroines from other series. I like to see them taking turns saving each other; I'm just as likely to get starry-eyed over Ichigo saving her as the other way around, provided there is no subtext of "...because you're just a weak little girl."

None of this is new thinking for me, but I was sort of amused yesterday when someone posted a fanart link to [livejournal.com profile] ichi_ruki and I found two pictures that pretty much epitomize the opposing ends of my "Makes Jaina Go Squee" range: this and this*.

In some ways, I don't really mind being predictable.

*Yeah, I know they're both standing tall and battle-scarred in this one**, but something about it just struck me as a setting in which she did the lion's share of the saving. Maybe because of her more upright position.

**I also have a major thing for Rukia walking around in hakama and bindings instead of the usual top half of the uniform. I do not know why.

So Ray and I got to talking about all the fics on ffnet that cast Rukia as Bella and Ichigo as Edward, and how they are dumb.

[livejournal.com profile] raynos:But don't you know that Bleach done Twilight style is all the fad?

[livejournal.com profile] jaina: A stupid fad

[livejournal.com profile] raynos: I've seen at least 3

[livejournal.com profile] jaina: Bella is like the anti-Rukia

[livejournal.com profile] raynos: I would think it's the other way around
[livejournal.com profile] raynos: RUKIA IS THE VAMP
And it just got worse from there )
effervescible: (rukia - dance [by hallowd])

Is that an amnesiac/possibly brainwashed Rukia attacking Ichigo and apparently winning? WHY YES IT IS.

Turns out I don't mind the filler fanfic-y shonen movies as much when they pander directly to my kinks.
effervescible: (renji - how YOU doin?)
Oh my god Renji was such a DWEEB in Academy. And he totally could have gotten into Rukia's pants if he'd tried.
effervescible: (orihime - that's hott)
I sort of want to fling my panties at Shuuhei now.

More than I did before, I mean.
effervescible: (ichiruki - worst fan evah [tenebris])
...because I am kind of excitedly awaiting the third Bleach movie even though it is most likely going to be more stupid filler, because that's what shonen series movies do.

The gist of it )

Dammit Pierrot. Stop playing to my shipping weaknesses. *sigh*

And in an effort to consolidate my Bleach spammery, here, have a Kaien + Rukia video that's been rocking my socks this week:

Oh fandom

Dear random IchiHime fanperson who I'm obviously not really writing to,

I'm not gonna argue with you about whose ship is right, because that sort of thing is just dumb and we should all be able to ship who we like and be fine with it. But I have to ask: Rukia "knows that Orihime is even more important to Ichigo than she is"?

Really? How does she know?

[livejournal.com profile] jaina: She changes his entire sexual orientation
[livejournal.com profile] jaina: that's power

[livejournal.com profile] hakuren: THAT IS.

[livejournal.com profile] jaina: WE HAVE DISCOVERED THE TRUTH

[livejournal.com profile] hakuren: LIKE THE HOLY GRAIL
