Title: Dreaming
Prompt: #014 - Renji @ [community profile] bleach100
Character: Renji, Rukia
Canon: Manga
Rating: G
Wordcount: 100


Dreaming has always been Renji's biggest weakness. He is sure he picked it up in his Rukongai days but he doesn't understand why the trait stuck with him. Dreaming was an easy way to get killed as Inuzuri gutter trash.

Rukia is the reason why he isn't lying in a peasant's grave on a hill in south Rukongai. He owes his life to her several times over. She is pragmatic. She makes firm decisions where Renji hesitates. She never lets anything stop her for long.

Not like Renji. Who is too afraid to reach for his dreams and make them a reality.

Title: Piggyback
Prompt: #012 - carry @ [community profile] bleach100
Character: Zaraki, Yachiru
Canon: Manga
Rating: G
Wordcount: 100


Zaraki Kenpachi is not a man well versed in softer emotions. Part of that is because he was never exposed to them during his formative years and he has no patience to learn them now. They are not important in the grand scheme of his life.

The other part is that those whom he does care about do not need him to say it out loud. Yachiru knows that he cares when he teaches her to fight. She can run along side him, but he never minds when she grabs a fist of his shihakushō and makes him carry her weight.

Title: Good-natured Cheer
Prompt: #009 - zest @ [community profile] bleach100
Pairing: Kaien/Miyako
Canon: Manga
Rating: G
Wordcount: 100


Shiba Kaien could charm a flower into opening in winter. Though he seems to come by the talent naturally, which is better than some can say. Miyako is not fond of those who manipulate others by way of deliberate, ingratiating charm.

She likes him against her better judgement. He is very open and blatant about his zest for life and his love of family. His smile always manages to tug a matching expression to her lips. His good-natured cheer is infectious.

That's what decides it for her when he earnestly asks for a date. Miyako could use more cheer in her life.

Title: There Are Lines
Prompt: #008 - accuse @ [community profile] bleach100
Character: Kisuke
Canon: Manga
Rating: G
Wordcount: 100


He stands accused of experimenting with hollowfication on eight of Seireitei's finest officers.

It's not that he's not capable or that his morals wouldn't allow it. Because he certainly is and he really has no morals to speak of.

However, Kisuke would not have chosen them to be his first test subjects. Why would he choose high-ranking officers when he has free access to the Maggot's Nest?

Aizen may be a genius, but he is also incredibly stupid. Experimenting on Kisuke's adorably violent fukutaichō? That's not allowed. Kisuke takes care of what is his. Aizen will come to regret this.

Title: Taste of Twilight
Prompt: #007 - reiryoku @ [community profile] bleach100
Character: Ichigo, Senna
Canon: Anime (Memories of Nobody)
Rating: G
Wordcount: 100


Sitting outside the café, discussing blanks and the shinenju, Ichigo realizes that that Senna's gigai must not work in the same way as Rukia's. Rukia feels muffled to his senses in a gigai. She is there but her soul is squished into a shape and feel that passes more for human.

Senna's reiryoku is different and hard to explain. It is the crisp smell of an autumn breeze and the taste of twilight on his tongue. She is both there and not, a wisp of power that is confusing.

He doesn't get a chance to ask what makes her different.

Title: Family Puzzle
Prompt: #006 - gap @ [community profile] bleach100
Character: Kuukaku, Ganju, Kaien
Canon: Manga
Rating: G
Wordcount: 100


Kūkaku and Ganju have always been of similar temperament. They shout and they yell. They laugh loudly and prefer to wear their hearts on their sleeves. A punch to the gut can be just as loving as a gentle hug. For all that they are the same, however, there is a gap between them that cannot heal.

Shiba Kaien is a shinigami of incredible note. He is also the third point of their triangle. A piece of their family puzzle, capable of reining in their worst impulses.

He is also dead, and has taken a part of them with him.

Title: Knowledge and Power
Prompt: #003 - moment @ [community profile] bleach100
Character: Kanonji
Canon: Manga
Rating: G
Wordcount: 100


It only takes a moment for a plus soul to become a hollow. Kanonji knows that better than anyone else. That knowledge had been hard won, and casts a shameful pall over him even now, but he is a better man for having learned it.

Kanonji continues his show for the reasons he told his #1 pupil, but he is careful not to aggravate any more ghosts. He would like to send them on to a better place but he doesn't have that power. He only has the power to see.

And he doesn't know yet how that power can help.

Title: Summer Smiles
Prompt: #002 - sweet @ [community profile] bleach100
Character: Karin, Yuzu
Canon: Manga
Rating: G
Wordcount: 100


Festivals are Yuzu's favorite part of summer. She loves getting to dress up in yukata and trawling through all the stalls with her sister. They play games and eat too many sweets --green tea kakigōri for Karin and chocolate covered bananas for Yuzu-- while waiting for the fireworks.

Yuzu has never been very good at kingyo-sukui, but Karin is getting better at it. She manages to scoop three goldfish and promises to let Yuzu name all of them. Karin is smiling, flushed and happy with her success, so Yuzu doesn't protest. Besides, she has the perfect names in mind.

Title: Freedom Awaits
Prompt: #001 - excitement @ [community profile] bleach100
Character: Kon
Canon: Manga
Rating: G
Wordcount: 100


The shinigami and his female companion leave, and even though no one would hear the words, they fall from borrowed lips.

"Take your time."

There is a flush rising underneath this human skin, a joy and excitement that is new and overwhelming.

This body feels strong. It is healthy and alive, not a decaying corpse. The responsiveness of this body is amazing. It's entirely different from what they had been trained to occupy, and that difference is startling.

But welcome. So very welcome.

Borrowed lungs breathe in fresh air. The future is brighter than it has ever been.

Freedom awaits.
