Title: The Parting Of The Ways
Author: Ragna (afteriwake)
Pairing: Nelliel & Ichigo
Rating: PG
Spoilers (if applicable): Set after the current arc, but if you know who the new bad guys are you’re not really going to get spoiled.
Warnings (if applicable): None
Summary: They said their final good-byes in the desert sand.
Authors Notes: Written for unwritten_icons's prompt of "Adult!Nel, Ichigo - Desert sand" for a very generous gift she gave to me. I’m sorry it’s not longer, sweetie. I’ll make sure the other two are at least 750 words.

The recurring comment I heard through both polls was how difficult it was to chose, so all the participants should be proud. But the polls were clear, and here are the winners!

There was not one but two ties for this contest, so there needs to be a tiebreaker poll for which fic gets 1st place and which fic gets 3rd.

Please remember, you must read all the stories before voting. Its a radio button poll, so you only get one vote in each poll. Voting will go on until April 12th, 2012 and I will announce the winners when I get home from my weekly trip out of town.

Well, the extension has ended, and there were seven entries. Thanks to darkmagic_luvr and r_dahlia for each contributing two entries!

The poll is below, but here are some rules for you to follow:

1 - Only vote if you have read all seven fics. It's not fair to vote if you haven't given each of them a chance. They're all relatively short, so it shouldn't take long. There are links in the poll.
2a - If you entered, don't vote for yourself. It's only fair.
2b - If you entered, you can encourage others to vote for your fics, but make sure they remember rule #1 and read all the entries.
3 - You can vote for your three favorite fics. No more, and please, no less.

First prize is paid account time for two months to the journal or community of the winner's choice. There may be a prize for second if my budget allows for it (it'll probably be some LJ tokens to spend as they see fit, most likely). All three placers will get a nice little graphic to display on their journal.

Got it all settled then? The poll is below. Voting will go until 4/8/11, with the prize(s) being given as soon as my funds clear up, which will most likely be around May 1st.

Rating: PG
Spoilers (if applicable): Set in an AU off the current arc (The Thousand Years Holy War), where it’s ended badly for a lot of people.
Warnings (if applicable): Mention of the deaths of canon characters
Summary: Some reunions do not go according to plan.
Authors Notes: Long time no write, I know, but some RL stuff just bogged me down. My last entry for the contest here, and it’s something a little different then what I had planned. I may make this into a series, not sure.

I got a note from someone who just found out about this contest and wants to enter but won't have a story done in the two days left, so I'm extending the deadline to March 31st, so if you want to enter you have an extra two weeks to do so. Please pimp the contest and let's see some new entries.

REQUEST!

I can write mostly anything, though...no...I can write mostly anything. I am not caught up on the current arc of Bleach, but I will modify this post when I am. I will also write crossovers for the following:

+ Naruto
+ Ouran High School Host Club
+ Adventure Time

Crackships are welcome. So welcome in fact that they are encouraged. Crack it up for me.

Please use this form when making a request, and make no more than five requests at a time. You can be as vague or specific as you want with the prompt, but just remember that the more specifc you get the harder it will be for me to write to your liking.

Title: Watching The Experiment Unfold (Whether He Likes It Or Not)
Characters: Mayuri-centric, mentions one-sided Ishida/Nemu
Warnings: None
Summary: He’ll tolerate the Quincy brat just to see the experiment play out.
Authors Notes: For laerkstrein, who gave me Mayuri and the pairing Ishida/Nemu and the prompt “discontent.”

Watching The Experiment Unfold (Whether He Likes It Or NotCollapse )

Title: Learning A New Role
Characters: Byakuya-centric, mentions or Rukia
Warnings: None
Summary: It took some adjusting, this new role of his.
Authors Notes: For unwritten_icons, who gave me Byakuya & Rukia and the prompt "Sometimes being a brother is even better than being a superhero. - Marc Brown"

Learning A New RoleCollapse )

Title: A New Friend
Characters: Iba-centric, mentions Iba & Isane friendship.
Warnings: None
Summary: He’d never thought he’d see this side of her.
Authors Notes: For darkmagic_luvr, who gave me Iba & Isane (gen/friendship) and the prompt "drinking games."

A New FriendCollapse )

Title: Dyuarizumu
Author: Ragna (afteriwake)
Rating: PG
Fandoms: Bleach
Characters: Hitsugaya-centric, mentions one-sided Hitsugaya/Karin
Disclaimer: I don't own any of the characters. Tite Kubo does. I wish I did, but I don't.
Spoilers: None
Warnings: None
Summary: He isn’t sure how to tell her, if he ever will, but he knows how to deal with his own feelings.
Authors Notes: For unwritten_icons, who gave me the pairing Hitsugaya/Karin and the prompt “duality.” In doing research I found out more about “dualism” and then up sprang this fic. Not my normal romantic-type HitsuKarin fic, BTW. The title comes from one of the Japanese words for dualism (not sure how it would be used, but I liked it, so I kept it).

Title: A Report On The Quincy Subject's Usefulness In Battle
Author: Ragna (afteriwake)
Characters: Mayuri, Akon and Nemu; mentions of Ishida, Ichigo and Ginjo

Spoilers (if applicable): Set at the end of the Lost Substitute Shinigami arc, during the fight between Ichigo and Ginjo.
Warnings (if applicable): None
Summary: Mayuri decides to put the microbes on Ishida's body to good use.
Authors Notes: I was involved in a conversation at senkaimon with shadowygame and the idea of Mayuri using the microbes to spy on nekkid!Ishida came up, and it evolved into a fic idea. This is going to be a series co-written with laerkstrein (the biggest Mayuri fan I know) and will consist of observations on what Ishida does while in the world of the living. There may be spoilers for the new arc...we'll see.

Warnings (if applicable): None
Summary: If there was something important about Ishida Uryu she would remember.
Authors Notes: for the Winter Festival. Uses the general tone of the song as the prompt. At first I wanted to make this longer, but then I thought it might be better if I just tease you all with what could have happened. Enjoy.

Authors Notes: Dun dun dun! Complication time! I will admit, it was a blast to write a pissed off Orihime… Sorry this part is so much shorter than the other ones, but I kind of don’t want to ruin it by adding any more.

Pairing: Ishida-centric (overall; this part is Orihime-centric) with mentions of past Ichigo/Orihime and current Ishida & OFC friendship. Eventual Ishida/Orihime.
Rating: PG
Spoilers (if applicable): Set after the Lost Substitute Shinigami arc but before the new one that just started.
Warnings (if applicable): None
Summary: He had moved on, but when it came to her, he’d still do anything for her, even while he’s an ocean away.
Authors Notes: Ishida’s not in this part because I wanted to elaborate on Leigh some more, and thought it might be nice to see Orihime open up to another female other than Tatsuki (though Tatsuki will be back soon). He’ll be in the next part, though!

Author: Ragna (afteriwake)
Pairing: Ishida-centric with mentions of past Ichigo/Orihime and current Ishida & OFC friendship (Tatsuki will flit in and out of this fic, but she's not in this part). Eventual Ishida/Orihime.
Rating: PG
Spoilers (if applicable): Set after the Lost Substitute Shinigami arc but before the new one that just started.
Warnings (if applicable): None
Summary: He had moved on, but when it came to her, he’d still do anything for her, even while he’s an ocean away.
Authors Notes: I went back and did a tiny edit to part 1 about Leigh’s “unrequited love” since I decided it would be more interesting if she was a lesbian. Part of the reason I picked San Diego is it’s my home county. I spend a lot of time in Hillcrest, so the description of Fourth/Fifth Avenue is accurate (if anyone’s wondering, I kind of have Leigh working at The Buffalo Exchange, not the place across the street). Also, forgot to explain in part 1 that rainy season in So Cal is generally January to April, so some days it’s pouring down rain (like yesterday) and other days it’s hot enough to go sunbathe at the beach (even if the water’s freezing cold). This is set in February, right before Valentine’s Day. This will be important later in the story.

Rating: PG
Spoilers (if applicable): Set after the Lost Substitute Shinigami arc but before the new one that just started.
Warnings (if applicable): None
Summary: He had moved away, but when it came to her, he’d still do anything for her, even while he’s an ocean away.
Authors Notes: The idea was kind of inspired by the fic Cyclical, an IchiHime fic written by nemutai (if you like IchiHime, I recommend it, as it seems to be the start of a very interesting series). I did this a little differently, in that Ishida has actually moved on in his life and moved to California to attend school, just to avoid Orihime being with Ichigo. I'm not quite sure where I want to go with this, but...we'll see.

General note: I've been writing these off and on today as I finished my "crossover of doom" (four fandoms, yo). All of these are exactly 100 words and are answers to requested prompts that kind of tugged at me for this romantic holiday. Enjoy!

To Great HeightsCollapse )

Title: Growing With Each Other
Pairing: Hisagi/Isane
Rating: PG
Spoilers (if applicable): None
Warnings (if applicable): None
Summary: It helped that they had history.
Authors Notes: Written for darkmagic_luvr, with the prompt "Hisagi/Isane, a history." There hasn't been much backstory with Isane so I made one up.

Pairing: Renji/Rukia
Rating: PG
Spoilers (if applicable): None
Warnings (if applicable): None
Summary: They had traveled different paths, but now they traveled together.

Pairing: Ichigo/Orihime
Rating: PG
Spoilers (if applicable): None
Warnings (if applicable): None
Summary: For her smile, he would do anything.
Authors Notes: Written for thiscanbegin, with the prompt "any pairing, and when you smile / people stop and stare for a while." I'll be answering this one multiple times, but for this drabble I chose Ichigo/Orihime.

Title: Paradise Is Always Where Love Dwells
Author: Ragna (afteriwake)
Pairing: Ichigo/Riruka
Rating: PG
Spoilers (if applicable): Set ten years after the end of the Lost Substitute Shinigami arc.
Warnings (if applicable): None
Summary: She spent ten years searching for home, and only when she found him again did she find it.
Authors Notes: This was originally going to be an entry in the Winter 2012 Contest at hyouhakuzai_fic, but Ichigo’s not in it enough for it to qualify. It was inspired by the lyric “I know my kingdom awaits and they’ve forgiven my mistakes” from “I’m Coming Home” by Diddy. Title of the fic is a quote from Jean Paul Richter.

Pairings: Byakuya/Yoruichi & Renji/Rukia
Rating: PG
Spoilers (if applicable): Set seven months after the time skip, but went AU before the last arc happened.
Warnings (if applicable): None
Summary: It was a day of giving warnings and getting life changing news.
Authors Notes: My second answer to the Winter 2012 Contest at hyouhakuzai_fic, where I used Byakuya, Yoruichi, Renji, Rukia and the prompt “I’m coming home, I’m coming home.” This is part of my “Both Here And There” series, to which I retroactively added the story “Musings On A Moonlight Night,” set prior to the “Fire Forged Friendship…” story. You don’t need to read either; all you need to know is Byakuya and Yoruichi were seeing each other secretly, Byakuya went to the world of the living for a bit and while he was gone Renji proposed to Rukia. This is set about a month later.

ETA: I won first place!

Username: darkmagic_luvr
Pairing: Arisawa Tatsuki/Hitsugaya Toshiro, mentions of Ichigo and his unnamed sister
Rating: hard R, but not NC-17
Spoilers (if applicable): None
Warnings (if applicable): mentions of character death, some lude behavior, illusions to war
Summary: Whatever it is, it's going to get them killed.
Authors Notes: I decided to get back into the Bleach fandom by writing this of all things. What is going on in my head I have no idea. Written for the Winter 2012 Contest, which I only stumbled upon because I was wondering what I'd missed here. I used the prompt "Let the rain wash away all the pain of yesterday", and it's really just that vauge sort of vibe I got when I read that line. I'll probably do a few more for this contest...happier ones. btw, Toshiro's supposed to look older, I'd say 17 at the most. (neither of the icons I have for these characters work for this fic, lol, this is as close as I can get)

Title: The Story Of The Young Girl And The Shinigami Who Saved Her
Author: Ragna (afteriwake)
Pairing: Ichigo/Orihime & Isshin/Masaki, mentions of Ishida/Tatsuki and Chad/Riruka
Rating: PG
Spoilers (if applicable): Set not quite as far into the time skip as the current arc, about six months earlier.
Warnings (if applicable): None
Summary: Things were going to be different after tonight.
Authors Notes: This one is a little sadder, and the story isn’t really a fairy tale (it’s my take on how Isshin and Masaki met). But…I’ve wanted to write something like this for a while, and this seemed the best place to do it.

Summary: She had a surprise for him tonight.
Authors Notes: My first answer to the Winter 2012 Contest at hyouhakuzai_fic. The characters I used were Ichigo and Orihime, and the part of the prompt I used was “I know my kingdom awaits and they’ve forgiven my mistakes.” I’ve decided that not every story I write for them to tell each other will involve just Ichigo and Orihime as the characters, or even have them as the main characters, just to change it up a bit. Hope you guys enjoy it (and the requisite Ichigo/Orihime cuteness that frames the stories).
