Bleach Dark Dawn Ch16, ReunionIt had been several weeks since Torin had taken command of his new squad. After introducing himself to the squad and moving into his new quarters, he had begun familiarizing himself with the finer details of running a squad. There were promotions and demotions, creating patrol routes and deploying squad members, reading reports on missions, drafting documents for his new rukongai improvement initiative.Bleach Dark Dawn Ch16, Reunion by cmd1095
He’d been kept quite busy by it all, and in addition to that, Captain Unohana had been running him ragged with kido training. While he wasn’t as hopeless at it as he had first thought, most of his spells still found new and creative ways to fail spectacularly. At one point his byakurai spell had the form and properties of silly string, and neither he nor Unohana had any idea what he had done. It was clear that he was going nowhere fast in the art.
And finally, there was the mountains of files that had been piling up the entire time the squad had been without a captain to han
Bleach Dark Dawn Ch17, Protector? or Avenger?"Torin!" Aurora screamed as Torin's grip loosened and he began to slump to the ground. Torin only groaned in response as he held himself up on his knees. His backside looked like it had been grilled in a volcanic eruption. It was charred black, and smoke streamed from cracks in the skin that had formed when the superheated air had dehydrated it to the point of breaking apart before getting thoroughly toasted.Bleach Dark Dawn Ch17, Protector? or Avenger? by cmd1095
Torin weakly gestured behind him, alerting Aurora to the presence of their assailant. It was a male arrancar with jet black hair, a long crooked nose, and golden eyes with flecks of red in them. The man stood a shocking 11 feet tall, and wore a heavily modified uniform that only covered his shoulders and lower body, revealing a body so muscular it was monstrous. The man had a 12 pack and biceps the size of Torin's head. Aurora looked positively miniscule before the beast
The arrancar smirked, revealing a set of jagged teeth more suited to the mouth of a shark than that of a man. "

"Well? How is she?" Torin said as he burst into the waiting room in the 4th division HQ. Rida was sitting there already his head in his hands. Torin was wearing a standard patient's shirt and his own pants, he had the remains of an IV still taped to his arm and his zanpakto slung over his back. And it sounded like there was a brigade of nurses down the hallway following him
"They patched you up fast" Rida commented, noticing the obvious lack of injury on Torin "after the beating you took back there I figured you'd be on bedrest for a week"
Torin looked back down the hallway and casually closed and locked the door, then moved a couch in front of it.
"I see" Rida said, he would have laughed, but he wasn't in a very jovial mood.
"SO?" Torin asked "how is she?"
Rida shook his head "they don't know, they've managed to neutralize the poison and heal her external injuries, but she hasn't regained consciousness, it might just be exhaustion, or it might be the mental shock of her coming so clos

Rida searched for Torin for hours, but he was nowhere to be found. Rida checked everywhere he could think of, but Torin had clearly gone somewhere else in his flight from squad 4.
"Where could he have gone?" Rida said out loud as he stood in the middle of a street, it was still early morning, so not many people were around yet, that ruled out asking if anyone saw him, and letting out the news that a captain was missing was probably a bad idea anyway.
"If I had just suffered through serious emotional trauma, and then nearly killed my girl in a fit of rage without even knowing it where would I go?" Rida asked himself, still thinking out loud
"If it were me, I would probably go visit the graves of my friends" a woman said from behind Rida
Rida turned around, surprised, a man and a woman shinigami stood before him. The man had spiky red hair tied into a ponytail and had a lot of tattoos, the woman had black hair that was cut off at her shoulders and violet eyes. Both wore standard sh

Torin stepped into Aurora's room, followed by Rida. Aurora was in a standard hospital style nightgown, laying on her bed propped up by several snow white pillows. Hikari sat in a chair by the bed, and she didn't look too pleased about being made to wait for so long.
"About time you two showed up! I've been done for hours, I was starting to consider tracking you both down and dragging you here by your ears!" Hikari said, practically foaming at the lips as she stood and faced the two friends
"Sorry, I made myself difficult to find" Torin apologized
"And I'm a horrible tracker" Rida added
"Whatever" Hikari said "I'll leave you two to watch over her, try not to destroy the barracks this time."
With that Hikari vanished, leaving the trio alone together. Aurora moved her head to look at Torin and Rida. "So, let me guess, you two fought over something stupid, Hikari scolded you, Torin went to the rukongai to calm down and you got enlisted to track him down, that sound about right Rida?"

By the time Torin and Rida reached the gate, all hell had broken lose. Jidambo, the massive gorilla like man who usually guarded this gate, had somehow been defeated and hurled over the wall. Now he was unconscious on top of some buildings, his condition was bad, but not immediately life threatening. Shinigami were fighting outside the walls to take up the defense of the gate now, but it was clear that wasn't the main issue.
An explosion roared in Torin's ears and the ground shook. Small fragments of rock brok off from the wall and fell to the ground, barely even pebbles, but very concerning nonetheless
"Captain!" A shinigami said "thank goodness you're here! We can't hold out much longer!"
"Status report, now" Torin commanded, he knew if the walls of the sereitei were chipping then the situation was critical. The walks were made of pure sekiseki rock, a rare stone that completely repulsed spirit particles, in a world where literally everything was made of spirit particles, the wall wa

The arrancar woman and Hikari stared at each other, evaluating each other's strength.
"You are different from the other captains" the arrancar mused.
"And you from other arrancar" Hikari replied
The woman nodded "I am the 2nd Diachiken, Aza Monela, my power is second only to Lord Crisis himself, there is no other arrancar as powerful as I, save for him" she said.
Hikari stood up straight and placed her hand on the hilt of her zanpakto "I am Hikari Mikon, Captain of the Kido Corps, I'm afraid I've been secluded from the other squads too long to say for certain, but I am the strongest captain save for the Captain Commander"
Aza smiled "I see, then I shall not hold back" she said as she gripped her own zanpakto, a standard katana with a star shaped tsuba.
Hikari and Aza both drew their blades and assumed similar stances. Their names had been exchanged, and the time for words had passed.
Two pillars of reiatsu, one golden, the other black, shot into the sky as both women prepared to attack

Aza raised her sword and whip, then dashed forward, flicking her wrist to send the whip at Hikari.
Hikari ducked, feeling the wind of the whip pass over her, then slashed, the blade appearing close enough to strike Aza.
Aza blocked the strike, she was completely awatre of her surroundings, an attack could come from anywhere, and she needed to be ready. Hikari pulled her blade back, and Aza darted forward, stabbing with her sword as she drew her whip back for another lash.
Hikari straightened and knocked the strike high, then planted her foot in Aza's face and knocked her back, then slashed again. Aza recovered quickly and saw Hikari's blade appear before her, she started to block, but then noticed something odd. "the top half of her blade… where is it?" she thought, then she heard the whistle of a blade cutting through the wind behind her. Azea reacted immediately, using sonido to dodge as the two halves of Hikari's sword slashed the air where she had been from opposite sides.

Torin and Shunsui were the last ones to the meeting, they weren't technically late, but Torin sure felt like he was.
"I hope you aren't teaching Captain Inzanki your bad habits Captain Kyoraku" Yammamoto said
"I don't have the slightest idea what you're talking about Yama-ji" Shunsui replied
Yammamoto raised a skeptical eyebrow, but that was the end of the discussion.
"Let this official Captain's meeting now commence!" Yammamoto said, slamming his cane into the ground "you all know why you are here"
Mayuri stepped forward "Indeed, what I do NOT know is why my squad, the finest collection of minds in the Gotei 13, is being forced to work with the brutes of the anthromorph's squad!" he said with disdain, gesturing towards Konnamura.
"Repairing that wall quickly is essential to the war effort Captain Kurotsuchi" Torin said evenly, as a rule, he found Mayuri's attitude annoying, but he treated the man with a certain degree of respect regardless. The man, whatever his flaws, was a captain a

“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.
I have NO talent for drawing, but i DO have a talent for writing, so I can offer writing deviations in Art Trades with anyone who wants|
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)
Avatar the last airbender/Legend of Korra
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.
