Amadalia sits on the wood bench behind a large brick wall; on the other side of the wall was the Shinigami Academy, and she had just applied to attend not to long ago. The six-foot blonde girl stares at her wrapped hands. This feeling . . . . she was very . . excited? Eager? Nervous? She had no idea what she was feeling at the moment and it was starting to confuse her just a bit. She glared, and balled her hand into fists, she figured it out: she was very excited. She was going to finally get stronger, something she's longed for so long. Amadalia stood up, exhaled, and proceeded to walk back to her temporary home in the Rukongai.
The next morning everyone who applied to the Academy was summoned to the front courtyard, the one that was right before the main entrance. Amadalia took her blue ribbon that bared her last name "Moonsong", put the front of it over her neck, and gently pulled her hands back along with the two strands left over. She professionally tied the strands at the back of
Damaged - Chapter 3: I Remember NowAssistant Captain Kuchiki paused before the door to Captain Commander Yamamoto's office. Turning to her Fifth Seat Officer, she asked, "Are you ready, Katrina?"Damaged - Chapter 3: I Remember Now3 years ago in Drama More Like This
Katrina shook her head, "I don't think so, but we're here. Let's go in."
Kuchiki nodded then announced themselves before entering.
Inside the huge room sat Captain Commander Yamamoto, his Assistant Captain, Chojiro Sasakibe, standing next to him. On Yamamoto's other side stood Captain Ukitake.
"13th Company Fifth Seat, Katrina Lau-san" Yamamoto said, his voice booming throughout the room. "I would like to formerly congratulate you on graduating from the Shino Academy, and in only one year. I usually congratulate all the new graduates at the ceremony, but this year I could not do so." He nodded slightly toward his left arm, most of which was lost during the battle.
Katrina could feel her face flush with embarrassment. This was unexpected. "Th-thank you, Captain Commander."
"I know that you have questions," Yamamoto co
Damaged - Chapter 11 - Operation MindcrimeKatrina screamed as she fell through the inky darkness. Panic set in as she could not sense how fast she was falling or where bottom was. She tried to use the Shunpo techniques that Yoruichi drilled into her head to halt her fall, but it failed. Even using Hadou 4: White Lightning to emit light failed.Damaged - Chapter 11 - Operation Mindcrime3 years ago in Drama More Like This
Suddenly she hit the ground full force, her left side taking the brunt of the impact. The pain was searing as several ribs and her arm were broken. She opened her eyes but the darkness was so great that she could not tell if her eyes were indeed opened or not.
As she laid there in pain, she was unaware of the black mist creeping closer and closer until it fully engulfed her, causing her to pass out.

Katrina found herself in her Inner World... the Temple of Leaves. She struggled to her feet despite her injuries and came face to face with the black mist.

"I'm glad Hisagi is doing better," Kuchiki said.
"Yeah," Katrina replied, almost inaudible against the sound of the Senkaimon gates.
Kuchiki put a reassuring hand on Katrina's shoulder. "This stuff happens when we are learning our Zanpakuto's powers. I can't even begin to tell you what happened when I first started using Sode no Shirayuki."
Katrina smiled. She had never been around such supporting people before. When she was the Chosen One in the Earth Realm, it was more like she was either over protected or expected to already know what to do. This was a welcome change and one she fully appreciated.
"Okay Katrina, the gates are opened. Let's go."
With that said, they followed their Hell Butterflies into the Senkaimon.

"Not right now, Matsumoto," Hisagi replied. "Kira and I have to go somewhere."
"Awww, you guys are party poopers," Matsumoto pouted, before downing a gulp of sake. "It's that 13th Company..uh Sixth Seat?"
"Fifth Seat," Kira replied. "Katrina Lau."
"Hoo... what a funny sounding name," Matsumoto slurred.
Hisagi sighed. "We'll join up with you later, Matsumoto, okay?"
"Aighty, but this sake isn't going to wait up."

"You'll be fine, Katrina," Ukitake reassured. "You went up against uneven battles."
"I can understand the one against Assistant Captain Abarai, but not the three mod souls."
"You're not giving up are you Katrina?" Kuchiki asked.
"There's a part of me that wants to. It's that part of me from my previous life," Katrina answered. "But I really want to get to the bottom of everything that has been happening. I need

Her hair, however, had reverted back to its usual shoulder length moppiness, prompting everyone to surmise that the length was part of her Bankai, initiated by the skewed time in the Dangai.
"Why are you being my nursemaid?" Katrina asked, irritatedly. "Don't you have work that you're supposed to be doing, Assistant Captain Kira?"
"Well, you still can't see and you're already prone to falling," Kira replied nervously. "Ukitake has captainly things to do, Rukia left to patrol in the Human World and Kiyone and Sentaro are covering for Rukia."
Katrina lifted up part of her blindfold before wincing in pain, replacing the blindfold quickly. "Seriously, you should go back to your company before you get in trouble with your Captain."
"Captain Ohtoribashi is fine with me being over here," Kira replied.
