Silky white sheet. White feathers. Fluffy bed. The moonlight entering the window. White walls. And next to him...a shirtless albino sleeping soundless while hugging one big white pillow.
His eyes widened. Why was he there? And where was he? He looked through the window. The sky was pitch black, the white sand dunes where unmoved since there was no wind. It looked like Hueco Mundo, but was he really in Hueco Mundo? Probably not.
The orangette turned his gaze on the sleeping guy face. His skin was pale and it seemed even whiter because of the moonlight that entered through the big window. A nice breeze started to blow, rumpling gently his white hair. Ichigo reached out for the albino's face but he stopped before his fingers touched the pale skin. 'What am I doing?', the orangette thought.
The truth was that he never looked at the albino properly. Every time they met each o

He didn't know how much time must have passed; he might have lost his consciousness for a few times already. He wasn't really sure of it, though. He couldn't see much since he was sunk in darkness. Were was he? He looked around, but in vain. He couldn't see anything.
The floor was cold like ice and he was lying there, too exhausted to stand up and escape that dark place. He sniffed a few times, but he couldn't smell anything. He thought that he could try his luck and shout for help but when he wanted to open his mouth and scream no word left his dried neck. He sighed. Nothing around him had sense. Was it even real? Before this complete darkness he had a few dreams. Were those dreams or that was the reality? He tried to think about it but no matter how he looked at it he couldn't find a plausible answer. He was just staying there unable to do anything.

Evil Golden Eyes
A strong lightning broke the darkness that engulfed Soul Society and made him squirm in his bed and hug his pillow tighter. A loud thunder followed the lightning breaking the silence of the night. That woke him up instantly. He looked around searching the room with his chocolate eyes, but he could barely see. If he remembered correctly he had a light switch near his bed so he threw himself in bed again and searched for the light switch with his fingers and found it in a few seconds. He pressed it but there was no light. Could Soul Society have electricity problems? He shrugged his shoulders. Normally he would have gone back to his comfortable bed, but he didn't. Something was wrong, though he didn't know what, but something bad was happening or going to happen.
Ichigo opened the door of the room and a strong pale of wind hit him. He left the room and stood up on the porch looking at the sky. It was a dark sky witho

Sunk in blood
The wind was blowing madly as he ran through the darkness, a lot of strong lightning were crushing the dark sky into pieces. He finally escaped the room he was imprisoned for a long time by Soul Society. He didn't do it alone, though.
"Faster, partner" a hoarse voice started to scream in his head. "We hafta go faster!" he continued being excited.
Ichigo didn't argue. He knew he had to go faster for the sake of the others. So he hurried up. Skipping through trees, the wood seemed interminable. Where was everyone? Why couldn't he feel their reiatsu? He couldn't feel it since he was imprisoned in that house but he thought that it was because of the barrier. Wait did they just hid his reiatsu? It seemed that way. That gave him more reasons to go hurry up.
He went faster and his hollow started to laugh hysterically in his head. He was delighted; of course, he

Final checks were made on make-up and costumes before they were sent over to the sound guys for last minute battery and equipment checks. Then an assistant went scrambling backstage to try and find an extra guitar pick before the group of musicians went on.
At long last, a voice boomed over the speakers, "Ladies and gentlemen! Welcome to the 25th Annual Shining Stars Studio's Musical Extravaganza! The concert held to celebrate this year's headlining groups, old favorites and up and musical talent from Shining Stars Studio!"
The lights began to dim as the voice finished dramatically, "So, without any further ado, put your hands together for this year's top rock band of heartthrobs for the third year in a row…A.Q.E.S.!"

He started to run as fast as he could, wishing for the Cleaner not to appear at that moment. As he continued to run through the dark passage that was connecting Soul Society with Human World he could feel someone's presence. At first he thought that it was some sort of trash that waited to be cleaned by the Cleaner, but the presence started to feel stronger and stronger as if it was approaching him. That definitely wasn't trash. The reiatsu started to pressure him more and more, suffocating the substitute shinigami who was trying to go to his world. But that wasn't allowed, the being freed more spiritual pressure sending blue waves of reiatsu to the young shinigami who stopped and drew his sword and stayed in defense waiting for his enemy to come to him. The enemy's spiritual pressure started to increase even more as if it was approaching Ichigo who started to run to greet his attacker. Ichigo let his reiatsu flow as well, like a wa

They were doomed. Senna came to realize this before anyone else. Although the Valley of Screams was destroyed, and Senna was safe, the Dark Ones achieved their goal. The Human World and the Soul Society were on the verge of colliding with one another. Countless people, in both worlds, would die, and there was nothing they could do to stop it.
Unless... Senna shuttered at the thought, but they were left with no other options. It was the only thing she could do if she didn't want to see both worlds destroyed. She grabbed Ichigo's sleeve, startling him. "Ichigo... I'm scared," Senna said quietly.
"Senna..." Ichigo said quietly.
"I won't do it... I just can't. I can't allow it," Senna said, looking up at Ichigo. "Not when this is such a wonderful world... with so many beautiful people living in it." Senna recalled her time in the Human World, with her memories flooding through her mind: when she first met Ichigo, when she spent time with him at the mall, when she met his family... e

"I think I'm finally getting the hang of this," said Ichigo, a genuine smile on his face as he turned toward his shinigami companion. The felled hollow dissipated behind him, and he casually rested his huge sword on his shoulder. The fading, sinking sun framed his lion-like mane like a halo.
The corners of Rukia's mouth lifted slightly, as if Ichigo's grin were somehow contagious. It turned into a smirk, as she noted, with only a tinge of guilt forming in her gut, "Don't get too comfortable, I'm not gonna be weak forever."
"You're not weak," he corrected offhandedly, carefully sheathing his sword.
Taken aback, Rukia elaborated, "I'm powerless..."
"That's not the same thing."
Although Ichigo refused to look at her, suddenly very preoccupied with his sword, Rukia's eyes softened in his direction. Cocking her head to the side, she pondered whether or not she'd ever get used to this boy's shif

“Szayel,” said Nnoitra, offering him a grin. “What are you doing up here in the land of the ‘living’? I thought you didn’t leave your lab except when Aizen-sama ordered you up here for meetings.”

What do NaruSaku fans love about the pairing?
Their development throughout the story, their interaction, their themes, their foundation, and just their overall win.
Why do NaruHina fans like NaruHina?
"Because it's cute and Hinata's cute and Sakura's a b*tch and that's why it should be NaruHina and SasuSaku because Naruto loves Hinata!"
Whatttttttttt? Let us take a further look into this matter..
1. Naruto does NOT have feelings for Hinata. If you think this then clearly you are not following the Naruto storyline for he has a crush on Sakura Haruno.
''Oh, Hinata loves me? Well, jeez, now that you mention it, I love her too! I just suddenly realized my feelings for her that I've had for this whole time! Sakura who?''

He felt only slightly disgruntled at the work he had to do, half of which wasn't even his. He leaned back on his chair rolling his shoulders to ease the tension built from sitting in the same position for most of the morning and afternoon. He stood slinging Hyourinamaru over his head, and walked to the door.. Stopping abruptly, Toshiro turned to look at the green object that caught his attention.

Your eyes slowly opened, unsure what has happened to you while you were unconscious. You groaned, finding yourself that the mistress you were sleeping on was softer than before. Your hands grazed over the sheets, feeling the softness under the tips of your fingers. You let out a small gasp devastatingly lips as you hid underneath the blankets, pretending to look asleep. The door to your room opened, heavy footsteps entering the room. The footsteps came to a halt, feeling the presence bore their stare into the back of your head. You heard them sigh, hearing that it sounds like a male. It shuffled around the room, fixing some things here and there. You heard another pair of steps enter the room, one a bit lighter than the other.
"How is she doing?"
"Still unconscious..do you really think this is the right idea?"

After training for what seemed like an eternity, you were finally able to graduate with the others. It was a long horrid training session for the past few years or so, but now, you were ready. Ready to face those beasts you called Titans. You grimaced just thinking about it. You sighed, walking along the top of the wall, moving to place some cannon balls next to a few cannons that lay on top of the wall. You grunted as you placed the objects next to them, sighing tiredly.
"You really didn't have to carry them, [ name ]."
You looked over your shoulder, finding Eren carrying some as well. You smiled, massaging your shoulders a bit.

Master Makarov had decided that if he was to get anything in the Guild done that day, he need to separate Natsu and Gray. They always were getting into squabbles and tiffs, but lately they were more disruptive and destructive.
Gray had flown through the air and crash landed into a table sending chairs and debis flying. Natsu was quick to jump on him, punching him in the face. Gray threw him off and pinned him to the ground and put him in a choke hold. Everyone else in the Guild seemed uninterested, mildly amused, annoyed, or worried, and a few, like Romeo, cheered. Master Makarov shook his head and sighed.
"That's it!" His voice carried through the room and silenced everyone. Gray and Natsu even stopped and looked at the old man. "I've had it! The grown ups around here can't get anything done with you bickering children causing problems."

White feathers were floating in the cold air falling down just like snowflakes. His eyes were burning being sunk in sorrowful tears. He didn't want to cry, he wasn't weak. He wasn't going to cry, no matter what, no matter how desperate he was. He cried once, but that was enough.
