The sickle moon cast its spell in a shallow pool of tired white light beneath her feet. She had slept all day. Or had she? The moon, fixed in its post like any good sentinel, never left her cell's window. She had no sense of time here, not even that attuned to thirst and hunger, since those had all but deserted her.
Her possessions constituted a Spartan state of affairs, not that that bothered her: a surprisingly comfortable couch, a toilet. She slept on the couch and did little else. Meantime, Ulquiorra Cifer, as fixed and invariable as the Las Noches moon, brought food to her cell and expected her to eat it. She did so, with difficulty, and he returned to take her utensils and subject her to the glower of his luminous green eyes.
Of late, he was not as chatty as he had been prior to the supposed death of her friend Sado. He merely watched her hand him her plate and fork and departed. So much the better.
She was the millstone. She hung around the necks of her friends, and this time, s

He began to slowly descend while the ice fell all around him, and the trap that he had carefully built for his enemy crumbled down in thousand of little pieces that reflected the sun like thousand little diamonds. But the beauty of this vision couldn´t cover the cruelty of what just happened.Shattered3 years ago in Profiles More Like This
He held her fragile body gently as if she could break into pieces in every moment. Yet he couldn´t stop the tremble in his body, and his breath that came out grasping as if he didn´t know how to breath anymore. The shock was too much for him to keep cool. Her blood was on his face.
It couldn´t be. Not him. He, whose only purpose was to protect her, to keep her safe, for he lived for her smile, for her smile that had the special power to make his black days alright.
He joined Shinigami Academy so that he could learn how to control his power, so

I look into the night sky and see only you.
Those eyes glimmer, signaling your desires or dreams.
Is it perfection that you have, smelling sweet like perfumes?
So is it fate, that from your lips were no screams.
Your eyes, not hesitant to show no fear of a monster.
Oh, how my emerald eyes betray me of the things I can't understand!
Under the moonlight, your hair, your light, why must you taunt a hunter?
Reaching to a light out of my reach, even my wings won't let me leave this desert land.
Here I stand disappearing silently, into dust, into the night.
Each one of you friends has come to rescue you from the dark.
A fierce warrior serves you and knows that I'm not right.
Realms of loneliness I finally come out, but you're already marked.
The warrior must end me to win you back, but why does love always betray?
Time to end it here, and now, the winner earning your heart.
Happiness should relieve you, but yet you linger and stay.
A most wondrous sight I see, that you don't want to be pulle

The carrot haired boy reached the classroom with a weird trepidation in his stomach.
He was not nervous… Kurosaki Ichigo could not, simply, be nervous over a simple matter like this… Or was he?
He felt the wood of the door under his fingers, the smooth surface in nothing easing his… weird feelings… yes, because it could not, absolutely, be nerves!
He sighed and backed away from the door…
Who was he trying to deceive? He was scared out of his mind! What would other people think if they saw him do something like that?
But he loved her, there was no doubt in his heart about that… damn, they were a couple already and everyone knew… then why such a simple gesture was so hard?
He remembered his sister Yuzu's advice, this morning, when she saw his pale face.

He scowled when she asked, but his sister replied he should think about that if he was getting cold feet. And t

"...-hime... Orihime? Are you okay?"
Gray eyes opened to blue ones that hid behind a pair of rectangular glasses. The woman sat up, almost butting heads with the black-haired man in front of her. His face was filled with worry, she had noticed, and she smiled weakly.
"There's nothing to worry about, Uryuu. I'm fine, really. All I did was bump my head."
The man fiddled with his glasses, blushing lightly at the smile she would always give him. "That's true but you need to be more careful, Orihime. If you're not too careful, you could get hurt."
Orihime could sense the anxiety in Uryuu's eyes as well as in his tone. He had just destroyed an invading Hollow that had invaded their town. But in the middle of fighting along his side, the monster had knocked Orihime unconscious with one swipe.
He couldn't forgive the fact that she was hurt. He had promised that he would take care of Orihime. Protect her fro

"Fifty percent what?"
"The Hogyoku is fifty percent awakened, as planned, Yammy."
"And what do you plan to do with it now?" Ulquiorra asked Aizen.
"Create a new being. A purer being. Granted, there will be a tradeoff. Though physically refined for combat, its intellect will be rudimentary at best. Of course, that means it will do exactly as I say."
Orihime shifted uncomfortably as she leaned against the wall, watching Aizen reach out to touch the Hogyoku in its crystalline case. He did so gingerly, as if afraid it might break. He did not, in fact, actually touch it; it touched him. Its metallic sheen darkened until it was totally black, and delicate tentacles extended from its surface to palpate his outstretched hand. Just after the tentacles of the Hogyoku made contact with his hand, there was a flash of light. Before the brightness of the light became blinding, Orihime could make out a quivering, misshapen form, completely covered in bandages inside a large crystalli

After Ichigo’s victory, Orihime saved Ulquiorra’s life without the knowledge of the others. As a result of the healing process he lost almost all his power, and his mask has been broken. Ulquiorra was grateful to Inoue, but remained in Hueco Mundo because he did not have a place in her world.
Suffering from intolerable melancholy, Orihime went back to him five years later and told him: «Maybe you do not have a place in my world, but there is a place in my heart». The happy life of UlquiHime began with these words.
They now live in a suburb near Karakura Town. They had two boys, twins Katsuro and Kichiro, and 5 years later a girl named Ayaka was born. She had a hole in her breast like the Hollows do.
The day before Ayaka was born, Orihime gave her hair-clips to the twins and told them to protect their little sister. But the day Ayaka’s birth, the twins found Orihime

A door opened slowly making sure no sound disturbed the comfortable silence of this summer night. Slowly a shadow tip-toed out of the dark room, got down the small stairs and passing the dark hall it reached the spacious room where the food was made. It walked toward the cabinets, it searched blindly for something. It touched a paper box and a smirk formed in its lips.
Its eyes adjusting at the pitch black and could now see a little bit better the furniture of the room. It avoided the chairs and reached the wooden table, its eyes sparkling in delight and a smile played at its lips at the sight in front of it.
It turned around and walked towards the silver twin doors and opening one, its eyes narrowed dangerously in front of it.
“At last…” it said with a smirk. “I found you, my old, hateful enemy…” its voice dark and serious and the smirk on its face widened. “

I blinked rapidly, unaware that I'd been daydreaming.
Uryu Ishida, blue-bound textbook lowered slightly, frowned at me curiously. "Why are you staring at me?" he questioned in a low voice.
"What?" I said, taken aback. "Why would I be staring at you?"
"That's what I want to know..." He retorted.

I flinched at the teacher's voice, sinking back into my chair. Uryu looked at me for a second more, before returning to his book.
Of course, I had been completely aware that I was staring at Uryu. No matter what I did, I couldn't get him off my mind. It might have been because of our latest expedition into the Soul Society, to defeat the Bounts, where Uryu had tried his best to defeat Kariya, but had lost w

It was warm. Not the scorching warmth of the sun beating down on your skin, but the peaceful warmth of someones embrace. Memories flashed through his mind. The last thing he knew, was turning to dust before that girl.
A drop of wetness fell onto his skin. As he opened his eyes, he came to see an glowy orange sky above him, and the eyes of multiple people above him. Intaking a sharp breath of air, he felt a beating mass in his chest clench, once the woman with bright orange hair and blue eyes was infront of him. Tears ran down her cheeks, as she placed her hand on his chest.
"Welcome back, Ulquiorra." She smiled, as the orange shield like sky dissapated.

Sora knew about the battle with Aizen Sousuke, he knew about what had happened to Orihime, he knew what she'd been through, through stories he'd heard, and when he'd gotten the chance to contact a soul reaper who knew her, he leapt at the chance. He was a near-graduation student at the academy right now; it wasn't like he could readily find chances like this. He just wanted to see her again, even if he couldn't talk to her, just to see his baby sister after all this time. It had been almost 15 years, after all.

A yellow hue of light flowed out of Inoue's turquoise clips, revealing two small brightly coloured spirits. Ayame bowed her head to Inoue in respect, her pale pink and oversized attire swaying around her arms and an enormous scarlet coloured headpiece hung over her dark hair, holding her firmly in midair. She held her hands tightly with Shun'ō, another fairy who had royal vermillion and gold garments and pale mint coloured wings. Together, they flew to Ichigo, enveloping him in a sand coloured shield of power. The normal joy the fairies had in their faces had disappeared as they watched Ichigo's lifeless body. They both looked to Inoue and she nodded, placing her slender hands on the surface of the shield and gently uttering soft words of incantation.
Controlling all her over flowing emotion, she concentrated hard on healing the boy in front of her, the boy she had loved all her life, the boy that was defeated by the only other person she had ever

You always left without saying a word,
Always leaving me behind.
That's the one thing I always hated about you,
because you were always on my mind.
When we met as children,
you were always at my side.
But all those years we grew up together,
I always knew you had something to hide.
But I just smiled and so did you.
I knew there was nothing I could do.
Then one day
I never saw it coming
How your sudden choice of betrayal lead
to what you were becoming
I held your hand
Telling you not to move
I wanted to hear it for myself
what was it you were trying to prove
But you only smiled, facing me with closed eyes.
Hiding once again your secrets and lies.
"How unfortunate If only you held me a little longer," you calmly said.
"Goodbye I'm sorry" Those final words, repeating in my head.
Many months have passed by,
And yet I never understood.
Why you betrayed me so suddenly
I thought you were good.

He breaks her down.
He destroys her, even if neither of them realize it.

Why not IchiHime?
There's a lot of reasons why I just can't ship IchiHime, in spite of Orihime's obvious "love" for Ichigo.
***The BIGGEST reason I doubt IchiHime will ever happen is because Kubo himself seems too chickenshit to have Ichigo get together with ANYONE. He doesn't want to piss anyone off by having Ichigo choose between Orihime and Rukia, even though if he had to, I'm certain he would choose Rukia because their bond is so much deeper than his bond with Orihime.***
Chances are, if it EVER comes up, Kubo will do like the writers of Macross Frontier did with Alto by having Ichigo say something stupid like "You're both my wings" and have both girls be totally okay with that for some reason. And then have a movie where Alto gets toge

Orihime had been collecting the twigs and small branches that littered the dunes of Hueco Mundo, broken off the strange, seemingly petrified trees that grew there. When she was done arranging them, she sat on the couch and admired the patterns they made on the walls.
