It's that time again

Eien Tamashi: To start studying for final exams

Me: Well that too, but no

:icondeadpoolplz: :iconsaysplz: To continue to try and convince your friends that you're not gay

Me: No, but whatthe--are you stalking me?

:icondeadpoolplz: :iconsaysplz: NO! ...okay maybe a little

Me: *sigh* No, it's time for another Soul Chess Newsletter

:icondeadpoolplz: :iconsaysplz: I wonder how many viewers realize we're blatantly ripping off Animaniacs

Me: Less would have if you didn't open your big yap

Eien Tamashi: Wait, your friends think you're gay?

Me: Just a few of them, an it pisses me off. HOnestly they take everything I say and turn it around or negate it. I will say it now: Yes I'm effeminate, Yes I'm not the manliest person to live, but I'm NOT GAY! And if anyone saw the kind of porn I look at it would be quite obvious.

Eien Tamashi: Well this is something for your therapist

Me: Do we have to let people know I'm in therapy too?...not that I'm trying to hide that one.

:icondeadpoolplz: :iconsaysplz: So are you gay or not?

Me: I'M NOT GAY!




So let's start the newsletter shall we

So status update, Chapter 79 will contain the next part of the Kenpachi/Nelliel battle which :icongreatkingrat88: is kindly working on for me/us. Please do not badger him to get it done just so the chapter can get out. Quality over Quantity people.

Moving forward with that I have a survey for all you Soul Chess fans that I would like you all to fill out if you please, if you don't want to leave it as a comment below, note me, e-mail me or PM me on FF.net


1. What got you interested in Soul Chess and how did you find it?


2. Whether your a big OC person or not I must ask: who is your favorite OC of mine in the series (alive or dead) and why? If you're not a big OC person then who is your least hated


3. What is your favorite moment thus far in the series and why?


4. What is your least favorite moment and why?


5. What scene in the series is the most memorable to you, whether it was a WHAM or that you won't forget about it and why?


6. Who is your favorite canon character that has obtained a change of status or heavy character development in the series (examples of this include, but are not limited to Momo, Tatsuki, Kaien, Soifon, Hisana and even Lelouch himself)





And now let's get into more questions that I'm tired of answering


Q: Will X happen in <insert arc name here>
A: I DON'T KNOW! Jeez I'm running around enough trying to make the current arc work, I set nothing in stone until I hit the submit button.


Q: Why would you kill X you heartless bastard?
A: I'm getting this question a lot now, but I know it's bound to increase in frequency as more and more people die if not now then in future arcs. For three reasons: 1. For reactions like that, it means I'm doing my job as a writer. 2. Because unlike Kubo I am not afraid to kill characters, that does not mean I didn't do so with a heavy heart as was the case with Yuna. 3. It's my series I will do what I damn well please


Q: Will Lelouch wind up with <insert character>
A: If said character is a male it's an automatic HELL NO! If the character is already spoken for then the answer is also no, unless of course I have plans to eliminate the hypotenuse. If the character has not had an interaction with Lelouch, or been hinted at having romantic feelings for him, or the other way around, by this point, it's not going to happen. The candidates are and forever will be the characters on the poll I had on my profile about this minus Rukia now that she's married and Momo since I'm still a large HitsuHina fan and would be hardpressed to tear up that relationship. From my personal standpoint I will also say that the characters that have the largest chance of practically being with Lelouch are Nemu, Susanna, Rangiku, Naomi, Isane, Kukaku and, since she's coming back, Yuna. However, I will also say, from a personal standpoint, that I am hesitant to make Yuna, Naomi, Susanna an OTP w/ Lelouch. Reason being is I feel that Canon/OC leads towards the path of Mary Sue / Gary Studom despite whatever character development has been put in place. Speak now or forever hold your peace unless you guys are NOT BOTHERED AT ALL at the prospect of Lelouch/Yuna or Lelouch/Susanna I will forever be hesitant to make a pairing in that direction unless I keep Lelouch in an open relationship. However, if that does not bother you at all, I would be more than happy to start upping the ship tease on either pairing or advancing the romance subplot a hell of a lot more.



Q: Will you do <insert crazy random idea here>?
A: I'll take suggestions of all shapes and sizes, but only if they are practical will I actually use them. If my answer is something to the degree of "We'll see" chances are that by the time I get there I'll ahve forgotten about the suggestion or that it's good, but goes against what I wish to do so I am hesitant to put it in. It's my story, but I like to give the fans their desires when I can if it doesn't interfere with my divine plan.


And now for some more direct questions and concerns

In a previous newsletter I said Lelouch wasn't going to learn Shunko because it's a step towards possession sue. Just learning it in my opinion is enough of a step because we've only seen Yoruichi and Soifon with the capability to be able to use it and according to Yoruichi non-master use of it in combat is dangerous and almost suicide

Moving forward, what I said about Lelouch getting stronger is finite he'll get stronger, but once you become a captain level Soul Reaper you're following the Exponentinal Growth Thoerm. It takes longer and longer and longer for you to become stronger. Talbumosuke is different though, Tal is no where near the vast potential at his disposal which is why he became so powerful when he activated Zencho no Sozo. So Lelouch has basically reached his potential more or less and that's DUE to his weak composition from when he was alive.

On another note, I've noticed that my decision is controversial for using both the Zanpakuto rebellion arc and the Fullbringer arc in my fic for varying reasons. Let me just say that once again it is my series and there is relevance and reason for my decision to incorporate them into the series. I'm not going to call out names, I'm not going to point fingers to which I have gotten multiple of, but the whole reason I am using them is because I believe I can make it worthwhile. Like singing for a contest, writing is all about taking risks. Fanfiction is a learning experience for me. I enjoy the feedback I obtain because it helps me with that novel I've been working on for three years (seriously it's been three years going to be 4 in March)


And with that out of the way, let me begin to wrap up this newsletter

I have finals starting not this week or next week, but the following week, the week of the 11th. I am very stressed about it to a certain degree because if I do not pass all of my classes I will not be in college next semester and if I am not you can be sure my life on deviantart will more or less become nonexistent.

So here's to studying and pulling myself out of a hole I've dug myself into. Row Row Fight the Power, peace out everyone

Okay, one, Deadpool, stop acting like Peanut (Jeff Dunham).

Now, 1. I was just looking for random crossovers, and got lucky enough to stumble across it.

2. Probably Susanna, at the moment, due to that parenthood mini-arc.

3. Both three and four can be summed up in three words. AIZEN! KILL YOURSELF!

4. Actually, I'll let you guess this one first.

5. Same as number four, because it's one of the issues that naturally gets to me.

6. Oh, wow, this one's thought. If I had to choose, I'd say I enjoyed watching Momo's journey the most, with Hisana as a close second.

Take you time on Knepachi vs Neliel. I look forward to that.


1. Reading Hero no More on FF.Net


2. Yuna Horuma of course ,Mari being a very close second.


3. Aizen dying. It was so well planned by lelouch to let Aizen think he won only have Aizen trapped in negacion and use Geass to finish the bastard off.


4.Sajin losing to Karthus, i felt you seriously made Koamarua look much weaker than he's suppose to be. Konoamarua shouldn't have lost to a farrcion Kenpachi easily curbstomped. Renji being treat like shit is a close second. I'm not a big fan of either character but i think out made then both look worse than how Kubo treats them.


5. Soifon going with Yourichi, that was the moment you kicked continuity in the balls in the best way possible.


6. Tough one . It's tied between Soifon and Tatsuki ,i pick Soifon .Soifon became FAR nicer than she was in canon.In canon she was a dominatrix fuel feitish kind of bitch and now in SC she's like a mama grizzly

i'm pro Lelouch/Yuna

"I said about Lelouch getting stronger is finite he'll get stronger, but once you become a captain level Soul Reaper you're following the Exponentinal Growth Thoerm. It takes longer and longer and longer for you to become stronger."


Make sense in a way given Bankai is the very peak of Soul reaper powers. Also would make sense why there's a power gap between the younger gen captains like Kenpachi Byakuya and Hitsugaya and Unohana ,Shunsui and Ukitake given the latter were captains for 200 years.

"In a previous newsletter I said Lelouch wasn't going to learn Shunko because it's a step towards possession sue. "

Yeah, don't you need high strength, stamina and kido control for Shunko ? Lelouch only has 1/3 of that down, the other two are impossible for him to achieve.

1. Found it over the TV Tropes fanfic recommendation page. What got me interested was that a combination of Code Geass and Bleach just seemed so weird that had to see for myself how it could work out. Needless to say, I was pleasently surprised.

2. So far, Kira.
If going for character's that aren't complete expies, I'd say Yuna.

3. Well. . . several.
a) Isshin using Final Getsuga Tensho against Aizen.
b) Lelouch achieving Bankai.
c) Tally killing Baraggan.
d) Kaien achieving Bankai and finishing Mia with his Giga Drill Breaker Tengen Toppa Mugetsu.
e) Aizen being geassed into suicide.
f) Lelouch's (almost) one-hit kill against Szayel.

4. Renji's treatment in general, with the peak being how Kukaku talked to him during Rukia's wedding. He isn't exactly my favourite Bleach character, but that was just plain mean.

5. "AIZEN! Kill yourself!"
The one thing I would have never seen coming.

6. While it isn't exactly character development in her case, I'd say Nelliel. I think that her portrayal as an anti-villain is actually rather close to how she probably would have been in canon.

2.Well, for Kira, mainly because I like Light, and I think that he actually makes a quite good Espada.
Yuna because she had a good characterization and part in the plot.
There's also somebody else I forgot to mention: Good old Tally. Even though I think you've been god-modding him a bit lately (though nowhere near as bad as Aizen ever was), he's in general a quite good replacement for his sensei.

3.I'm actually still surprised that that one hasn't made it on the "Shout Out" entry on the TV Tropes page yet.

1.Was browsing deviantart looking for good Bleach fanfics and found Soul Chess Ch.1 read through it and liked it a lot read the next few and got instantly addicted, been following since Ch.32 but i read all the chapters up until then

2.Honestly? Vera. She has been one of my favorite OC's of yours or of anyone so far. In face Vera helped to inspire an OC that will be going into a bleach fanfic of my own, (its just starting so they have yet to be introduced into the story) I hope you don't mind.

3.When Kaibun took over Tatsuki and brutally beat the hell out of Luppi, that was one of the greatest moments ever, it showed that inside of Tatsuki lies a power that may even rival Hollow Ichigo (I'm probably overestimating that ^^; ) And IF Tatsuki could learn to control that power she would one badass motherf*cker

4.Aizen's death. reason why? it was underrated Aizen was this all powerful character and he just....dies, I will say that his death was needed at that point and that there was no other real way to finish him off. However that battle beforehand was purely amazing and i LOVED seeing what Lelouch's Bankai could do at full strength

5.See Above answers last sentence it was a moment i will never forget

6.Most definitely Tatsuki, its nice to see her fighting on the front lines with some amount of power for once

Afterword:
This is my first time commenting on anything by you, So i guess its nice to meet you. now for something random

Me: Go on say something

Mei Inmetsu:...

Me: please?

Mei Inmetsu: No

Me: come on i risked looking like an idiot to do this

Mei Inmetsu: Fine then i will say something *Ahem* This is Chris *points at me* and this is his sad attempt to seem cool and brake the ice by doing something he's seen you do before and thought it was a cool idea. I am Mei Inmetsu the Zanpakuto Spirit of the main OC in his fanfic Assai Ankoku. His story is just starting so I have yet to be introduced into said story

Me:....you didn't have to be so mean...

Mei Inmetsu: yes i did now leave me alone to sleep *disappears*

Me: Well that was my sad attempt to say hi please don't kill me and it's nice to meet you Draconichero18

2. No, of course not. I don't mind at all. I'm flattered :). Just mention where inspiration comes from, like I know I do, and we're cool :).
You'd be surprised how much "inspiration" goes into this series.
Vera's a very unusual answer I must say. And it's answers like that that make me have hopes for my original series since knowing that even the not widely used characters have some fans I now know that my plan that "Have enough characters at least one person will connect with all of them" holds water so I'm glad and amazed to hear an answer like this :)

3. Well Kaibun is going to make a return in the current arc so I think you'll be looking forward to that


Nice to meet you too :)

I guess I'll start with my responses to those questions of yours.

1. What got you interested in Soul Chess and how did you find it?

Answer: I was just browsing through randomly actually. Before I have found this epic series, there wasn't any good long running Code Geass crossover fics that has caught my attention and when I reached the Bleach/Code Geass crossover section, there were some that has caught my attention ("Travels of a Hollow", "Taking Over The Afterlife", "Bleached Geass", and "Orangette Destiny" )but none of them has updated ever since.

Then I entered the "M" rated section and found "Soul Chess" to be at the top of the list and at first, I thought that it would be like the last Bleach/Code Geass crossover that started out strong but didn't continue but I keep on noticing the frequent fast updates with high chapters counts and rising so fast that I have never seen any author do that since tgobg's Naruto/Gundam Seed crossover "Gundam Seed: Fallen Angel" that I have to start over from the beginning and since then, I've been hooked and so far, there is no Bleach/Code Geass crossover that can equally match or surpass this and when there will be a new crossover, it has a lot to live up to.

2. Whether your a big OC person or not I must ask: who is your favorite OC of mine in the series (alive or dead) and why? If you're not a big OC person then who is your least hated

Answer: Usually I'm mixed about OCs because if they take too much attention away from the canon characters since the canon characters are the main reason why we read fanfics in the first place most of the time, then it would be easy to label them as Mary-Sue/GaryStu and they would usually be rejected and bashed horribly by the fans but if they play a major role but don't take away too much attention from canon characters, then they are alright in our book and thankfully, the OCs here in Soul Chess definitely fit into the latter.

It's hard to narrow down which OC I like here but if I have to pick, it would have to be Susanna Shapikni because I do admit that have a thing for Rei Ayanami look alikes despite that I am not a huge fan of Evangelion. Other than that, I really liked that despite her unusual appearance within the series, she manages to make herself likeable, loyal to her friends and superiors and instead of being like Misa Amane where she is a victim of blind love to an undeserving bastard, she became a strong loyal follower who can make her own decisions for herself and her strong undying loyalty and love for Lelouch despite his past sins really did hit a chord with me. Plus, the fact that Lelouch is treating her right makes it easier to see them together so yeah, Susanna is so adorable and I am happy that she's doing alright despite the miscarriage that happened.


3. What is your favorite moment thus far in the series and why?

Here's the list of my favorite moments in the series so far...

a) Lelouch vs Aizen: Round 1 in chapter 48 because it started as a battle of two dark chessmasters and seeing how Lelouch calculated his way to have Aizen defeated by Geassing him to commit suicide was something I never saw coming and is yet brilliant in its execution that at last, the annoying trolling monster known as Aizen is finally dead...for now and Lelouch, we salute you!

b) The Free Lelouch arc in chapters 49-50 where Lelouch is in jail feeling miserable and looking back at the things he has done and refusing help from the others to break him free shows that he is no coward and is willing to accept any punishment and his willingness to sacrifice himself to protect the rest of the Phantoms serving under him really hits home that Lelouch has greatly changed since the days that he was alive. Plus, seeing Lelouch shed a tear for the first time in a very long while Susanna claims her undying love and loyalty to him was a great moment to see.

c) Lelouch promising Susanna that he will be there for their baby/Lelouch hugging Orihime scene in chapter 56 because after learning that Susanna is pregnant and Lelouch confirming that he wants to take responsibility for getting her like that and saying the words "The baby is my future" has really shown that Lelouch is determined that after learning what happened with how Charles and Marianne raised him, he doesn't want history to repeat itself again for his future child and to show that he really does want to prove that he is a changed person by saying that he will be there for Susanna and the baby was beautiful to witness.

Lelouch hugging Orihime while asking her to pretend to be Shirley and to see the strong sense of sadness in Lelouch's eyes while seeing him pleading with Orihime to just let her pretend to be Shirley in order for him to be at temporary peace before he eventually face Shirley again in 17 years time was another touching moment that affected me because I still remember how I love Shirley's character and how much she strongly affected Lelouch when they were alive and to see that she is strongly referenced here with Lelouch still never forgetting her even after he slept with Nemu and Susanna shows that he really does has his heart set out for those who love him and he never forgets them. When we get to see Lelouch reunite with Shirley again, I know for sure that he will finally confess his love to her as well as to make it up for the pain he put her through.

d) Chapter 58 foreshadowing Cornelia's future role as the third main hero of the series and to see Lelouch realize how much Cornelia means so much to him after remembering the good times he had with her is something that is so sweet, heartwarming, and yet tragic to see and the additional flashbacks in chapters 72-73 also helped gives it more impact and I can't wait to see the future reunion and reconciliation between Lelouch and Cornelia very soon.


4. What is your least favorite moment and why?

Answer: Lelouch and Susanna finding out about the miscarriage in chapter 68. To see Lelouch and Susanna go from being happy and looking forward to having a child to finding out that the fetus died was just shocking and devastating to hear and seeing Susanna crying in the end after everything that went wrong for them is just tragic to see. On the other hand, this moment signifies that despite all the good that Lelouch has done for Soul Society and his commitment to change himself for the better, this is a sign that God himself is still not done with Lelouch in screwing him over just yet and is also a sign that the worst for Lelouch to face head on has yet to come.


5. What scene in the series is the most memorable to you, whether it was a WHAM or that you won't forget about it and why?

Answer: See question 3


6. Who is your favorite canon character that has obtained a change of status or heavy character development in the series (examples of this include, but are not limited to Momo, Tatsuki, Kaien, Soifon, Hisana and even Lelouch himself)

Answer: Obviously, it's Lelouch because of how much he has grown and changed throughout his stay in Soul Society and has grown up to become a great worthy Captain who truly earned that title and despite his dark tendencies popping up whenever he faces an enemy and plans how to defeat that enemy, his development with his new friends in Soul Society really shows he has changed for the better and when we finally return to the Code Geass timeline, lets just say that Lelouch will be doing a lot to make up for his mistakes and when he reunites with Euphie, Shirley, and Cornelia, it would be a tearjerker for sure.

Second is Ichigo because with Lelouch's guidance, he has become less of a Leeroy Jenkins who always thinks it would make things easier by just taking on his problems by himself without help to a more caring responsible young teen who has finally decided to set aside his own personal pride and let others help him when he needs it and with those developments, I know that Ichigo will soon someday turn into a great man and be one of the greatest warriors in Soul Society history.

Even though we haven't had enough time with her yet, I get the feeling that I will love Cornelia's character development once when we reach her story arc soon.

Anyways draco, good luck on planning out this epic series and good luck in your exams!

Love all your answers, can't say I'm surprised with any of them and thanks for the vote of confidence.

I will say that I never thought anyone would compare Susanna to Rei Ayanami, yeah I know red eyes, white hair and all, but that was never my intention with her when I first created her so it's interesting to see, since I'm using her and all, that people, I'm sure you're not the only one, would draw that conclusion.

Your welcome and out of all of the authors of my favorite fanfics who I reviewed and sometimes get responses, I never get more frequent responses like yours and that is meant to be a compliment.

As for potential future pairings, I personally want for Lelouch to go for the "Tenchi Solution" and just have Lelouch end up with the select few chosen girls who are genuinely in love with him and with him genuinely attached to those chosen women that he couldn't be separated from them at all. You're right about one thing, it's hard to pin down who is the best one paired with Lelouch since all of the girls who are romantically interested in him have great chemistry with him and him with those girls as well and that is why you just can't narrow it down.

Lastly, I hope you don't have poor Shirley to be left out once when she comes back into Lelouch's life later on because a sweet innocent girl like her deserves her long overdue happy ending and being reunited with Lelouch in Soul Society would be her best chance to get it.

Yeah but at this point I can see Susanna, Nemu, Yuna, and Shirley, as true loves. I never picked up that vibe with Kallen, to me it seemed she had a similar relationship with lelouch that Gottwald and Viletta had with eachother (proud and charismatic leader and loyal subordinate).

Rangiku is too much like milly for my tastes, (too much of a flirt, not enough of a romantic) she belongs with gin (should he switch again) anyway.

Naomi is too much of an airhead. Whatever relationship she and Lelouch would have would fall apart because they wouldn't be able to communicate as well due to her ADHD and soul society's dismal supply of ritalin

Isane just has nightingale syndrome, just put her and naomi down as suckers for Lelouch's good looks.

Kukakku... I don't see her as the relationship type. Don't take this the wrong way but in here and in canon she is not looking for romance instead just a quick lay. I'm not saying she is slutty, not at all in fact, just that she doesn't seem the type to want a relationship without being ooc.

About the gay stuff... you sure your friends aren't trolling you? I'd hate to think they were so set in gender roles that they equate effeminacy/lack of typical machismo with homosexuiality.
I mean, have they never heard of Metrosexuals/Camp Straight?

Yes. You may remember her- one of your first introduced OCs, lesbian, died fighting a conspiracy...

That better be sarcasm because OF COURSE I remember her. I remember everybody.

I have to ask, why was she your favorite?
I mean I'm starting to think One Scene Wonder and all.

In one fanfic I actually have an AU where she and Yuna are still alive and well...but at the same time Aizen in the soutaicho. (It's a bad future created by the big bad where Ichigo never became a Soul Reaper and Aizen isn't a douchebag because the big bad set things up for Aizen the way he wants them, but at the same time killed everyone in a blood purge that could get in his way).

That was indeed sarcasm. I just used it cause, well, she was the first OC you killed off, and I did mention how that was pretty tragic.

She was pretty cool. I was liking how she turned out- your current OCs just don't do it for me. Too exotic, not enough screen time to actually flesh out their personalities.

Yes, yes I know.

Well I barely used her, maybe for just one or two chapters. I mean all I had really established was that she was good friends with Yoruichi, friendly, firm, lesbian (which I'm sure is where most of the favortism comes from lol), beautiful.
Your reaction was sort of how my dad's was to Mia Fey's death in the Phoenix Wright series.

by the way just for your reading pleasure I did a short, but sweet omake from the alternate continuity Bad Future.

It takes place 15 years before the present in the alternate timeline, shortly after Aizen's promotion to Head Captaincy.



"I'm back!" Mari announced as she walked into her office. Today was a regularly scheduled Captain's meeting. As usual, Yuna was patiently waiting for her on the couch of Mari's office.

She instinctively ran towards her captain as happy as can be. "Mari-sama!" She hugged her captain tightly as her head rested against her captain's ample bosom. Mari let her arms loosely hang around Yuna. "I missed you." Yuna said.

"Yuna, I was only gone for an hour, same as usual." Mari reminded her.

"It felt like forever." Yuna said as though she were a little kid welcoming back her mother.

"Oh Yuna," Mari laughed, rubbing her hand through the top of Yuna's pine green hair. The captain of the tenth division lay down on her couch on her back. She stared up at the ceiling letting her left arm hang at her side and put the back of her right hand up by her forehead.

She sighed. Things were rough nowadays with a new Head Captain in charge. The Blood Purge had taken a lot of the remaining captains by surprise. Aizen's promotion to Head Captaincy was no surprise after the sweep. He was the strongest one left. Mari was disgruntled that Album Atrum had neglected to eliminate Treva Hoshima. She thought for sure the man was worthy of death, but she would not question the lord of the Soul Society. She wasn't surprised at all by the declaration of Unohana's death. She always knew that woman was a demon.

The next thing to enter Mari's eyesight was Yuna's head peeking over her bust. "Are you tired taicho?" Yuna asked.

"It's not very easy these days. You're not as affected as I am by the change in head captaincy." Mari said.

"Is there anything I can do to help you taicho?" Yuna asked, her own breasts now pressing into Mari's. Mari smiled widely. Yuna knew that smile. She got off of Mari and suddenly clothes began flying off in every direction until both the captain and vice-captain of the tenth division were nude, holding each other and making out. Of course, in Mari's exhaustion she had forgotten to lock the door and her squad's current 6th seat, Hitsugaya Toshiro, was so focused on getting paperwork to his captain that he opened the door without knocking only to walk in on his captain lunged hungrily over his vice-captain with Yuna's arms and legs wrapped around Mari's back. Both looked at him. Hitsugaya tugged at his collar and turned bright red, not expecting to have walked in on what he had just walked in on. He cleared his throat and covered his eyes.

"I…I'll…come back later." He shut the door forcefully. Mari and Yuna heard him running down the hall shouting. "What has been seen cannot be unseen!"

Yuna turned her head to look back at Mari. "Should we stop?" she asked.

"Of course not." Mari said giving Yuna a hickey on the right side of her neck, causing her vice-captain to squeal loudly and the two went back to what they were doing.

1. On July 30 2011 I was browsing Bleach xovers and saw Soul Chess. The summary was sound, the story at that point I believe was a couple hundred K words long at that point. It had a decent amount of reviews, I dunno maybe somewhere in the 500-600 range which told me it was likely well received. The character filter made me nervous but the genre was Adventure/Drama not romance and made no semblance of a relationship between the two beyond enemies. Just to be sure I checked your profile. As soon as I saw "Sexuality: Straight" I clicked the first chapter and never looked back.
I believe what also played a hand in it was that with how crappy the Bleach archive was. There are hardly any non-yaoi stories that have any semblance to canon. (I DON'T WANT TO READ ABOUT RUKIA AND ICHIGO'S HIGHSCHOOL DAYS DAMMIT!) At that point I was desperate for anything, I was going mad! I checked the Xovers and yours was the first one I saw.
2. My favorite OC I suppose is/was/is Yuna Homura. Her death, among others had shaped Lelouch's resolve to change Soul Society and curb stomp Aizen.
3. There are many but the one that stands out the most is the fight against Maki, I particularly liked Lelouch's "Kira moment" while gloating, it was hilarious and he got out alive by the skin of his teeth and the edge of his blade.
4.Ikkaku's death, he is one of my favorite characters in the bleach series and it is sad that he was put down so early, but it brought out a strong reaction in me, which was your goal.
5. Aizen committing suicide by geass. At that point I thought the story was going to end but instead you turned it around and brought Talbumosuke as the main baddie. Instead of making him a cookie cutter Aizen you have developed him into his own character and values. He is better than Aizen in that he values and trusts his subordinates and among his desire for revenge he sincerely desires to help the hollows.
6. Mia Arruruerie. Instead of the traditional gender bender for AA you brought her into her own and she has become one of the main characters in this series.

And I am for the pairing I am in support of Susanna or Yuna, as well as Nemu and Rangiku

1. Cool :)

2. I see

3. Really? A few people actually disliked that so I'm intrigued.

4. :nod: I needed to kill someone that would open everyone's eyes that this isn't the same Karakura arc

5. I'm glad people find Talbumosuke to be a likable villain since I try to keep him that way without turning him into a villain sue.

6. Ah Mia, one of my favorite characters to work with on this series :D

Which is why I can honestly say that most of the bleach archive is crap. it appears that nobody wants to write about souls, soul eating monsters, or katana wielding badasses anymore. Well at least the Naruto fan community hasn't let me down...yet.

That is generally true of all fan fiction, but perhaps more so of shonen series' where the fanbase is largely young and immature, and heavily laden with yaoi.

Yeah but most of the time i am able to overlook that crap, i hate it when slash makes up the majority of a particular character filter. I am sure that if i were to search the filters with Hitsugaya, Byakuya, kenpachi, even grimmjow that i would find some good non/ stories but i want to read more about the main badass.

Depends on the series. Compared to Naruto, Bleach fanfics aren't as yaoi heavy.

The thing about fan fiction is, it reflects popularity. A lot of people are disinterested in Ichigo, but would love stories about Grimmjow or Kenpachi- like myself. Ichigo, being the main character, still has a ton of stories about him.
Me, I consider him overpowered, boring, stereotypical and flat as a character, so I read about Soifon or Kenpachi.
