Bleach, Dark Dawn Ch31, The ambushAfter he stood, Rida found himself thrown into the wall, It hurt, but then the explosion cut off any of his complaints.Bleach, Dark Dawn Ch31, The ambush by cmd1095
"Torin!" Rida yelled over the roar of the flames
"I'm fine" Torin said as his reiatsu snuffed out the flames around him. He had several severe burns on his chest and arms, but he wasn't down yet.
Torin drew his zanpakto and slashed as an arrancar with a giant spear/axe weapon dashed at him and stabbed, the blades met in a shower of sparks, then the arrancar was pushed back. Another one was right behind him though, this one had his sword sheathed, he moved fast, punching Torin in the face immediately after his partner was pushed back.
Torin let the punch knock him into a backflip, then spun his sword in midair to deflect a barrage of bala shots from a huge arrancar man.
Torin scowled as a pale arrancar walked out and fired a blue cero at him. "Too many…" he cursed "bankai!"
The bankai release blasted a hole in the ceiling and also shielded Torin from the worst of the c
Bleach Dark Dawn Ch32, The TruceThe talk with Aizen's espada was rough, even after Aurora and Rida brought back the senior captains to help. Unohana healed Torin with shocking speed, considering he had gotten beaten senseless by 7 of Aizen's espada. Apparently the other 3 were still guarding Hueco Mundo, which is probably the only reason Torin had survived the initial assault.Bleach Dark Dawn Ch32, The Truce by cmd1095
The espada claimed Torin abducted Aizen, and as proof the presented a tattered, but official, haori of a squad 3 captain.
"But that's impossible" Torin objected "I've been working with our troops all day for a week now. I can get thousands of testimonies saying where I was at any given moment"
"and we are to trust the word of a shinigami about the innocence of a shinigami" the pale skinned one, known as Ulquiorra, questioned.
Torin frowned, they had a point there. Anything spoken by a shinigami could be on orders from him, since he was a captain, or simply a lie to defend a comrade from a hollow.
"the haori is too large for me" Torin offered "i

Ichigo was walking home from school, it had been another quiet day, no hollow attacks, Rukia was still in the Soul Society, and he hadn't received any information on the state of the war.
Ichigo's pace slowed to a stop "Something's not right, there hasn't been a hollow here for months now. Rukia and the other shinigami haven't contacted me, so the Soul Society must still be fine" he thought "but I still feel uneasy, it's like the calm before the storm"
---Hueco Mundo, Crisis's throne room----
Crisis spat a curse "that boy is too damn resourceful!" he raged "he's ruined my intel on their formations, increased their fighting capacity tenfold, and now this!"
Eight shadowy figures stood in the room with Crisis, none were clearly visible in the low light, and their forms seemed nearly transparent.
"My lord" one spoke, it's voice heavily distorted "with the two forces united, an invasion of the seireitei will be too costly, we will not have enough troops left to cha

Torin grabbed his zanpakto and slung it over his back, attaching the sheath to a harness that formed from crystal dust. Rida and Aurora were both with him, also preparing to depart.
"this is obviously a trap" Torin said "if Crisis wanted to attack karakura town he could be more subtle, he wants us to rush there and split our forces"
"Still, what choice do we have?" Aurora asked "if we let him attack it he'll just create the Ouken"
Torin scowled "that's what bothers me, he has the edge on us in too many ways, He's captured the head of the stealth force denying us an entire squad, taken down our walls, and now forced some of the Gotei's strongest defenders to leave the Soul Society." He complained
"well no use complaining" Rida said cheerily "let's just kick as much ass as we can, Crisis's forces will be split too remember"
With that the trio left to go the the senkaimon.
At the senkaimon were several other handpicked shinigami judged to be good fits for the missio
Bleach, Dark Dawn Ch35, The Strategy SessionTorin met with Ichigo and his friends at his house. Rida and Aurora accompanied him. They were all covered in soot from head to toe.Bleach, Dark Dawn Ch35, The Strategy Session by cmd1095
"What happened to you three?" Ichigo asked
"The sub-stasis array is a prototype" Torin grumbled "ours blew up"
"What does this array do exactly?" Uryuu inquired
"It places all individuals below a certain level of spirit energy into a state of suspended animation and transports them to the soul society, where they'll be kept safe" Aurora coughed "um, could I, you know, use your shower?"
Even through the soot, Aurora's blush was clearly visible, Ichigo seeme rather uncomfortable himself.
"Uh, yeah, sure, it's right down the hall" Ichigo said
Aurora went off to use the shower, and the topic became more serious.
"So what about the town? What protects that?" Ichigo asked
Torin shook his head "I hear a man named Kisuke Urahara is making something to do that during the fight with Aizen, but it isn't done yet, we'll have to repair anything that becomes damaged in
Bleach, Dark Dawn, Ch36, Mr. Hat and ClogsA few days had passed since the planning session. Enemy raids had kept Torin and his team busy, but they knew they had to hold back. If they showed their full power the enemy might grow wary and reallocate the raiding parties to security.Bleach, Dark Dawn, Ch36, Mr. Hat and Clogs by cmd1095
The enemy's construction proceeded at a steady pace, finding the assaults on it were always stoppable. It was frequently damaged, but never destroyed entirely.
Torin stood on a tall building towards the edge of the city, looking over the outskirts at the giant archway being constructed.
"Just a while longer, but still..." Torin sighed "we're only delaying the inevitable. We're gonna have to fight Crisis eventually, and none of us have the strength to beat him. Heck, even that patchwork man soundly defeated both me and Ichigo..."
Torin sensed something behind him and spun, narrowly avoiding the sword of a man wearing green clothes, a striped hat, and clogs.
There was no room to draw his sword, so Torin grabbed the man's wrist and pulled him off balance
Bleach, Dark Dawn Ch37, Kiskue Urahara's PlanTorin was led into the basement of a strange candy shop "This is!" He gasped "it's just like the place back where I became a captain!"Bleach, Dark Dawn Ch37, Kiskue Urahara's Plan by cmd1095
Rida and Aurora walked up. "Awesome right?" Rida asked
Aurora ran up and threw herself at Torin, hugging him tightly. "I missed you" she said, placing her head on his chest
"Wha...?" Torin said "I saw you this morning, why the strong reaction? "
"She hasn't seen you in half a year, be more considerate" Rida scolded
"Whaaaat?" Torin asked, now thoroughly confused "wait a sec, are you taller Rida?"
Rida smiled "so you noticed huh? Half a year of training will do that to you "
"ALRIGHT!" Torin snapped "someone tell me why everyone I've met today has been completely insane!"
"It's my invention" Urahara said "it really has been 6months since they've seen you"
"Eh?" Torin asked, going back to being confused
"In this room, while the device is active, time slows to a crawl." Urahara explained "or to be more accurate, it's compressed"
Urahara pulled out a diagra
Bleach Dark Dawn CH38, Attack of the Inverted Man"Shinji Hirako" Torin said "I've heard your name before... Somewhere..."Bleach Dark Dawn CH38, Attack of the Inverted Man by cmd1095
"Never mind that" Shinji said "what's important now is to begin your training immediately"
Torin frowned "why? We've got 3 years before my time training is up"
"And 3 months before you become possessed by your hollow" Shinji responded
Torin's breath caught "w-what? I was right!? But that was a joke guess!"
Shinji nodded "and an accurate one, all inner hollows attempt to take over eventually, it starts slow, slight blackouts in a fight, a few hours unaccounted for, but then it gets worse. If you can't subjugate it..."
"It eventually takes over for good" Torin finished "got it, so how do I subjugate it?"
"Well you accepted it much faster than Ichigo" Shinji commented "anyhow, let's begin phase 1"
"Eh? Ichigo has one too?" Torin asked, but in response he was forced to dodge Shinji's sword as it pulverized the ground where he had been standing before
"What the hell was that for!" Torin yelled
"The first step is to bre
Bleach Dark Dawn Ch39, The PreparationsIt took about two weeks to prepare for the next phase of the training. The other vizards were brought to the training ground and introduced to Torin. There was Hiyori, a short angry girl who didn’t seem to like anyone much, but mostly abused Shinji. The next was Love, a tall man with spiked black hair, he seemed friendly enough of a guy, despite the fact he quoted from the manga he read a lot and confused Torin. Then there was Kensei, another tall man with white hair, he seemed constantly annoyed, most often by a vizard named Mashiro. Mashiro was a green haired girl, and Torin wasn’t sure what to make of her, childish was a word for it he guessed. The final female vizard was named Lisa, a young adult woman with turquoise eyes, red oval glasses and long black hair. She seemed to be the most serious of the bunch, though Torin was certain he caught her reading some questionable material at one point, she quickly hid it when she saw him there, which made Torin even more uncomfoBleach Dark Dawn Ch39, The Preparations by cmd1095
Bleach Dark Dawn Ch40, The Subjugation Begins!“Coming here is one thing, but finding the bloody hollow is another” Torin grumbled, he had been hunting for his inner hollow for a while now, time flowed in strange ways in his inner world, and it seemed like it had been hours since he first woke up on the outskirts of the ruined city of the world.Bleach Dark Dawn Ch40, The Subjugation Begins! by cmd1095
Torin entered the central building of his inner world, a large dome with ornate double doors, skylights without glass, and a giant wall sized mural in the center that was colorless unless struck by natural light, which only existed when Kessho Satsujinsha was present.
“Bout time you showed up” a female voice said
Standing before the mural was a woman Torin recognized. She had fiery red hair, a stunningly beautiful body, and all white clothes. Torin’s breath caught in his throat, it couldn’t be… he stumbled backwards in shock “y-you, you’re” he stammered.
“I’ve waited a long time to see you Torin” the woman said &
'Reprogrammed' Ch1, The End of the World“Incoming enemies at 3:00!” A man said with a note of panic in his voice “Average level 35! Primary groups 3 and 4 are engaged and requesting assistance!”'Reprogrammed' Ch1, The End of the World by cmd1095
“Damn! Send support group 3 go help them, don’t try to defeat them, just disengage and get out of there!” Torin said. His pale skin was glistening with sweat as semi-transparent screens opened and closed in front of him, bombarding him with streams of information about the rapidly evolving battle. His eyes darted back and forth, taking it all in, there was no time to waste, not even to blink. He watched the members of the support team join the battle to the East, it quickly became apparent they would need further assistance. With a grunt he lifted his arm, raising a metal staff into the air “Tactical Withdraw!” he intoned. The top of the staff began to glow with a brilliant blue light, and a moment later beams of light shot off towards the east and the staff ceased to glow.
B.D.D Ch53.3 DemonslayersThe demon eyed the trio warily with its one good eye, the other having still not regenerated from Aurora’s attack. This was a situation it had never encountered before, never before had an attack inflicted a permanent injury on it, it blocked attacks because they were painful, not because it was ever in any real danger. But this woman, her energy blast had damaged it for real, but how, had she found a weakness even he was unaware of? Impossible! He was invincible! That attack was a fluke, nothing more!B.D.D Ch53.3 Demonslayers by cmd1095
With a roar the demon lowered its horn and charged, it would gore the woman and trample the others, and then it would finally be free to ravage the world again. Its footsteps shook the ground as it ran at deadly speed towards Aurora.
Aurora didn’t so much as blink as she raised her free hand, holding her shikai loosely in the other. A sphere of golden energy grew in her hand, then shot out at the charging demon, hitting it directly on the horn, then exploding in a blaze of li
B.D.D Ch53.2, Unbeatable Duo vs the Unbeatable FoeTorin and Rida charged the massive demon towering above them as its twisted face sneered down at them. “Pitiful Shinigami, adding one more to your number means nothing!” it roared as one of the countless black tentacles that made up the base of the demon’s current form split into thousands of smaller bladed tentacles and shot towards the duo.B.D.D Ch53.2, Unbeatable Duo vs the Unbeatable Foe by cmd1095
“Hit fast and keep moving” Torin said as he took the lead and grew a set of dual scimitars from his armor, using them to slice every tentacle that got near in two “it has to have a weakness, find it!”
Rida nodded and jumped in front of Torin the moment the tentacles were dispatched, his fist blazed with flame as he fired his signature move into the demon’s chest, the attack was short and quick, testing the durability of the new body against the heat of his fire. As the flames surged around the demon’s torso, it became apparent immediately that they weren’t doing any damage.
BDD CH53 part 1, Fighting the DevilRida watched as the last of the smoke exited his father's corpse, gathering in an orb above the body, which was now crumbling into dust. The smoke slowly began to compress itself, coalescing into a physical form as it floated down towards the ground.BDD CH53 part 1, Fighting the Devil by cmd1095
Rida felt himself begin to sweat, the presence of this demonic hollow was unnerving by itself. Pure, uncaring malice was what this thing was, hate without reason, evil without a purpose. It didn't care about the suffering it caused, it did so merely because that was a part of its being. The absolute embodiment of evil, and the most powerful pure hollow in recorded history.
The physical form of the hollow finally manifested, a foot with black scales that looked like armor stepped onto the black marble floor, followed by another. The demon's entire body was humanoid, with the same black scales covering it except for it's head and leathery black wings. The things face was, for lack of any other word, demonic. Long horns grew from it's forehea
Ok so I'm writing a book that involves video game stuff, and I decided that while I certainly could do everything myself, there was a perfectly good opportunity to have a fun contest with this.
The premise here is simple, I want you, the contest participant, to design a unique character class like you would see in an MMORPG. This class would be custom made, tailored to your own personality and fighting style (or the personality and fighting style of an OC or something if you don't want to use yourself as the template).
You can include as much or as little detail as you like, coming up with ability names, strategies, what stats they'd be best at/worst at, all of that stuff. However there needs to be some information for an entry to be valid
Class Name: This is self explanatory, what is your class called? Try to be creative with the name, if you name it "fighter" that doesn't make it unique at all
Class Type: Is your class a melee type? skill based? Support? Mage? some mix? Give a general classification that the class could fall into, this will help me compare similar submissions and also give me a better sense of what the class is
Class theme: Tell me about your class, how does it function? what is it's purpose? What is the driving concept behind it? Basically you need to convey to me the nature of the class and whatnot.
Note that those are simply the REQUIRED bits of information that I need, the best submissions, as in any contest, are the ones that go above and beyond what is merely required and go that extra mile. The more detail you give, the more your vision is conveyed, and the more likely your vision will win. The greatest concept in the world can't win if it isn't sufficiently communicated.
Rules and Restrictions! IMPORTANT!!!
1) Don't make it too OP, be reasonable about things and don't give the class a crudload of broken abilities and awesome stats and etc... You can make any kind of class you want, but delve too far into the ridiculous and you won't win
2) The class should be viable for all "levels" and whatnot, since I haven't made all the characters or decided what their levels would be or even how I'm going to scale things. I can always fill in the gaps of course but do try to craft it in such a way that if a minor character with a low level were to use it the class would still function. This isn't a strict rule, but a good one to keep in mind
3) The class name "hero" is reserved, there will only be one of those, at least as the plot stands anyway
4) There are no submission limits, if you can come up with 10 submissions you are welcome too, but come judging time I will restrict each contestant to 1 winning entry
5) Nothing too lewd or inappropriate, if you want to head down that route that's fine (say you want a class mechanic to involve charming and seduction, that's fine, but keep it somewhat clean), just tread carefully and don't go too far
Some of My Key Judging Criteria
here are some of the things I will be looking for when judging entries.
1) Adherence to the rules (cause duh)
2) Creativity in concept (this is the biggest criteria, everything else is considered, but in the end it's the concept I care about most)
3) Development of class mechanics (the more you flesh out how your class functions, the better)
4) Class feeling tailored to an individual (this is important, the class should feel like it was tailored to a specific person, doesn't matter if it is you or an OC or whoever, just so long as it feels like the class you made would be hand crafted based on someone's personality and style, rather than a class that could be used by anyone)
5) Everything else ( I simply listed some of the main things I will be considering, anything else can only help you)
Participation prize - if I in any way use your class idea in my book, you (or rather, your DA account) will receive a mention in the special thanks section of the book, depending on finances at the time I will also attempt to give each one of you whose concepts are used a free signed copy of the book.
1st place -to be determined
2nd place- to be determined
3rd place - to be determined
OK so I haven't quite decided exactly what the prizes will be for the winners, or how many winners I will choose, that will depend in part on how many submissions there are and whatnot, the 1st place prize will most likely include some sort of small monetary reward.
If anyone wishes to donate prizes let me know
If there are any questions about information I forgot to include, feel free to ask
|Well I usually give out gifts rather than receive them, but I'm trying to save up some points to get a commission from one of the more famous bleach OC artists here on DA, like Rtenzo. I figure if I can get a commission from him I can draw lots of attention to my fanfiction|
If you have a few extra points lying around and are willing to donate, I'll be very grateful. I'll also do a request for anyone who does donate, though that isn't the greatest incentive.

things I know enough about to do include, but are not limited too
poetry (to an extent, i know some basic forms and I know Shakespearean sonnets, that's about it, and depending on if i have inspiration the quality varies)
Kingdom Hearts stuff
Fullmetal Alchemist stuff (been a while since i've watched the series, but i've watched both)
Oh My Goddess stuff (I doubt anyone has even heard of this... but i've watched the anime and read all the manga they have at the library, which is about books 1-28)
Air Gear (I've only seen anime)
Final Fantasy (have played 7, all sequels/prequels of 7, 10, 10-2, a quarter of 12, and tactics)

For all categories the quality of what you get will be greater or worse based on how much info you give me to work with. For example if you ask for a sonnet and leave the rest to me that means i have to come up with the topic, what to be said, and how to word it all by myself, if you give me a topic that I know about then it makes things way easier and I can focus on the actual writing. Or if you want a Bleach OC fight but only give me one OC then I have to create his opponent, which I CAN do, but I can't spit out OCs like i'm some sort of machine.
