Is it weird i have dreams about this happening
cherrylovesichi said: Hm, well I think the only ship we have in common is IchiRuki (I don't know the others you listed) but asking you to write a post about their current relationship seems a bit redundant. Are you willing to write what you think would happen after they got together? How would their dynamic evolve once he lives in SS (which i'm 99% certain he's gonna stay in SS at the end of the series)?
That’s a good ship, and it’s the one I assume most of my followers follow me for ^_^
I am sorry this took awhile after I practically begged you to ask but, you’ve made do something, I’ve never done. You made me contemplate the “end of” Bleach.
But I will because it’s something I don’t normally talk about…
Just had to put a lot of thought into it first
I think it’s inevitable that Ichigo will end up in SS, at the end of Bleach or when he dies, so there has never been a question of his staying behind at the end, or eventually growing old and dying then going to SS looking like Isshin and Rukia staying an eternal Loli and Ichigo looking like Isshin chasing Yuzu aroun—BRAIN BLEACH. I can’t even finish that thought…
Being that I always considered it a given, never really thought about it, but given the way Bleach is going, Ichigo will stay at the end with Rukia or find way to come back and visit but be located somewhere where he can still “fight” to protect people…I always thought he’d be a Captain or First Commander of SS someday
He spends quite a bit of his free time in SS so I really don’t think it would be heartbreaking for him. He knows that death is not the end; of his relationships…they’re forever. Plus they can visit, so it would be more like he moved out of state or country
As for IchiRuki relationship, the answer is simply complicated and so will try to explain it as best I can….
See the thing is I may be unique when it comes to IchiRuki shippers. In my mind Ichigo and Rukia is already a couple. They act like a couple to me, and cannot be more cannon then they are now…
I’ll tell you why——
In chapter 181 when Ichigo went to find Rukia (after running around like a crazed chicken searching high and low for her) the first thing he said is “get’s some rest. LET’S (as in “let US”) go HOME”. He didn’t stop to think that hey…”she’s dead, I am not and basically in the military…can she go home with me. Normally the living world is for the living…” He just assumed that they would always BE together. That she would always be with him
She lived with him secret the first few months,(even got breakfast in bed, lol Ichigo is whipped)
and then out in the open and his father calls her “daughter”.
In every oriental drama I have ever seen, whey they call their son’s female acquaintance “daughter” after taking her into their house in their family, they mean “daughter-in-law”. This cannot be insignificant
This omake with Mayuri and Renji helps to establish canon, and is proof that the omake chapters are also canon
This means, according to canon—
Ichigo and Rukia spend New Year’s and Christmas together, something couples are known to do Japan
Sometimes they spend it with his friends
Sometimes they spend the holidays with her friends
Her “family” hangs out with his family
Ichigo occasionally hangs out with his brother-in-law
And even receives gifts from him
If they’re not in Ichigo’s room
They’re hanging out in with his friends
Or they’re hanging out with her friends
This is how their creator describes their relationship
When the two that share destiny part and reunite, beyond the frame of time the ceased clock will awake and start to tick once again.
I don’t understand how anyone can look at this spread and come away thinking…”Yep…Kubo sees that relationship as being totally platonic”
He cries over her, she makes him happy, he makes her happy…
- "I wonder if I can keep of the speed of the world where there is no you"
- Kuchiki-san is that who changed the world
- Rukia changed my life Rukia changed my destiny it is because of Rukia I can be here now
- "Ichigo changed me
- Ichigo was the one changed EVERYTHING (as in “my entire world”) for me”
I mean seriously, how much more canon do you have to be? How is that NOT romantic?!
I mean seriously, do you people think romance is KISSING and fucking?
They don’t have to do that, to act like, and relate to each other, and be perceived as a couple
Because believe it or not, not every relationship starts with the couple is blushing, and checking each other out, wanting to suck face.
For some it’s just the feeling the get from being “with” each other. For some, they just know that they like being around each other and feeling like they want to do better, that they can do better with this person by their side. For some that is enough and the feelings of lust and desire don’t develop until later, because it is a result of them loving that person and wanting to be as close as they can to them. Instead of being “in-lust” first and falling in love afterwards.
So in my mind Rukia and Ichigo am already a couple and so I thinking that the cast has already acknowledged and accepted that. Because they have a relationship that “just was” and felt so comfortable with each other, they didn’t put much conscious thought in it. They simply came together, and that’s why I don’t think we’ll ever have this moment where either of them realizes that “OH I LOVE THIS PERSON” because they already do and have said it each other and the world, over and over again- *Reese Witherspoon Freeway Imitation*…Like so many times.
Just like I don’t think we will have an IchiHime confession/rejection scene because we’ve already had it
He doesn’t know it, can’t hear it, didn’t really happen did it?
she already knows that he loves someone else
RESOLVED THAT ISSUE…and accepted her place in the friendzone…
and is happily part of the nakama trio that rides with Ichigo and so IH has been already resolved, imo
So maybe it’s not really that complicated after all, and simply put:
I think in the end, IchiRuki will “just be" and they will not change only developing the intimacy that comes with being arduous and raise little black and white themed bad ass rug rats and kick ass together til they finally grow old, in a a couple of thousand years.
So it’s Captain Ichigo and his Lieutenant Rukia …
Orihime and the other nakama will eventually become a part of his squad and future captains and members of the Gotei 13
Um and that’s how I see it. Sorry it really doesn’t get much deeper than that
