Prince of Light ha? Its kinda cool…
I just wanna color our precious quincy <3
Color : me / Panel : Bleach 537 - Tite Kubo
IshiHime the Best!
This is Ishida, remember? The guy who’s always prepared, who plans ahead, who actually has a spare cape in case of emergencies. This is the guy who forgave a shinigami for running him through with his sword, and remained friends with him. So why the fuck would Kubo write him as a traitor and…
I have a hard time believing that people who have been reading Bleach for years, who have seen Ishida come through for his friends over and over, who watched him lose a limb on the Dome and keep fighting with his off-hand, who watched him walk up to a blood-thirsty monster and take it by the hand because he knew his friend was somewhere under that mask and that friend would never forgive himself for what he was about to do, that these same readers now somehow think that Uryuu would really honestly betray these same friends and his grandfather’s teaching for… what exactly?
Bleach readers, if you think Uryuu is truly a traitor, please engage your brains before you embarrass yourselves further.
Yes, we’ve just seen Uryuu welcomed into the ranks of the Vandenreich. By the guy who killed his mother.
At this point I’m not going to debate whether he’s actually been brainwashed/re-educated, is playing the double agent in order to learn their weaknesses for Urahara, or is pretending to join them in order to effect his own vengeance for his mother’s death. Any of those options is 100% more likely than Ishida being an out-and-out traitor.
That is all. For now.
Okay, I’ll do this, but I won’t tag anyone else. Because I’m a heartless bastard like that.
Also not tagging like Silvia. Doing this because I AM DONE GRADING FINALS. Just got through with late (6 pm) dentist appt and can’t sleep and oh well hi INTERNET….
Probably my dad. UH IT’S WEIRD and probably unhealthy. …not in a gross way, just that I can’t stand the thought of disappointing him.
5. Do you have any hobbies?
Sleeping counts, right :| I used to read more, but grossly and sadly, it’s probably just… playing video games and role-playing (text shtuff on dreamwidth).
6. What is your dream job?
Somehow being able to support myself as a novelist but wow for so many reasons that will never happen.
7. What is your greatest fear?
Failure. Disappointing people.
8. Do you have any siblings, if so, how many?
Older sister, Meagan,and a younger brother, Jack! (John, but we call him Jack.) My sister’ll be 28 in August and is getting married in October. My brother’ll be 24 (………holy shit) in August and quit smoking and drugs this year, SO PROUD.
9. Do you believe in soulmates?
10. Favorite band?
I hate picking favorites anything, but probably Radiohead. I like all kinds of stuff. My iPod has the American Folk Anthology, classic music, video game music, alternative rock, old rock (the Grateful Dead, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, all that), 90’s pop, IDK ALL KINDS OF CRAP.
11. Do you like nutella?
…lol I’ve never had it. Despite being in Europe and everything when the people I was travelling with were devouring it.
CAN WE TALK ABOUT BAGELS THOUGH man I miss New York bagels. also I make a lot of cookie dough from scratch, just to eat it.
lol idk how to tag because no one recently did sucka
honestly this just reinforces what I’ve long, long felt and wanted to post about
That’s it’s such a HUGE SHAME that Ichigo and Uryuu weren’t friends as kids.
Think about it. Both of them probably suffered because they could see ghosts/Hollows and had no one else their age with…
MUST. DRAW. THIS.
Even if my art is awful as shit.
*adds in the To Do List*
OKAY WAIT A FUCKING MINUTE
THEY BOTH HAD HAPPY FAMILIES FOR EIGHT YEARS
WHY WEREN’T THEY FRIENDS
The way events resolved themselves likely made the prospect of a relationship between the couples/families too awkward.
Ryuuken surely had regrets for not stepping in and saving Masaki from the Hollow bite, and then there’s the whole “what could have been aspect” that isn’t real conducive to lively dinner conversation. Plus, Masaki’s infection & departure represented a huge blow to the Ishida clan; one they probably didn’t want to be reminded of.
Masaki went off to uni, started dating Isshin, and they made their own life for themselves. Small clinic doctor and Karakura General surgeon/president probably moved in different circles too.
I do wonder though just when Ryuuken gave up the Quincy stuff. Now that we know Katagiri was frail, I doubt he’d have let her go out and “sortie” even if a Shinigami got killed. And if Ryuuken ever went out to take care of Hollows I wonder if he ever ran into Masaki? You know she probably would have waved at him.
We still don’t know the whole story of what happened to the Ishidas so maybe there’s more to tell, but just given what we know, and with Ryuuken being Ryuuken, it was probably easier for everyone to just live their own lives.
Ahhhh, all good points. While it’s sad to think of Ryuuken maintaining absolutely no contact (last Quincy! friendly enough!), he did kick her out in order to “definitively part” with her. Awkward dinnertime conversation indeed.
I do wonder just what Katagiri’s condition was, and for how long. Plus, we don’t know how Ryuuken’s mother died and under what circumstances. Just what caused his animosity toward Souken? It could easily be his failure to be there, but he seems to have his distaste for the Quincy and then a separate disdain for Souken… but that may be reading too much into it, and it may be a culmination of never being there + Souken pushing the Quincy stuff onto his son while knowing Ryuuken opposed it. That’d be more than enough for “that old man.”
Still, it’s such a shame ):
Ishida-kun...if you ever change your mind, tell me any time, okay? I'll be waiting for you.
❝I’m heading out.❞❝Join your brother in arms, my son.❞
yes this guy definitely turned on everybody to sincerely join the nazi quincy
