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

Torin entered Byakuya's manor, oddly enough, he had been invited to discuss his plan with the noble captain. He had expected to have to beg for an audience, possibly break in and take one by force, he took the invitation as a good omen.
Torin saw two uniformed guards approach "You are expected, right this way Captain Inzanki" they said
Torin bit back his protest about being called captain, it still felt odd to him, but it wasn't worth the trouble, noble family's guards were disciplined servants, they would address Torin as captain if he held a blade to their throats and threatened to drown them in acid. Torin followed the guards to a room with cushions on the floor for seats. A larger cushion was at the head of the room, and on this Byakuya sat, sipping tea from a ceramic cup.
"Welcome Captain Inzanki" Byakuya said "Please, have a seat"
Torin bowed and complied "please, just call me Torin, we aren't in a formal meeting, and I have not yet proven myself worthy of that title" he said.
Bleach, Dark Dawn Ch26, The GauntletTorin had a lot more difficulty entering the 11th division to confront Kenpachi than he had meeting with Byakuya. Apparently, knowing Torin would be coming, Kenpachi had ordered his squad to attack Torin on sight if he was spotted near the barracks.Bleach, Dark Dawn Ch26, The Gauntlet by cmd1095
Torin ducked a sword slash and knocked a man out with a punch to the gut, then did a spinning roundhouse kick to drop two more. Behind him a long path of groaning defeated foes seemed to stretch forever.
Torin's moos was rather sour now, the constant attacks were a nuisance at best. His hakuda was really bad compared to his other skills, but he was still a captain, and unseated shinigami like these weren't even a good warm-up exercise for him.
Torin turned the corner and found himself facing two men that looked much stronger than the weaklings of before, one had a bowl cut and feathers is his part and on his right eye, the other was bald, both boasted impressive reiatsu, Torin judged the bald one to be 3rd seat to Lieutenant level, at least
Bleach, Dark Dawn, Ch27, The KenpachiAfter his battles with Yumichika and Ikkaku, Torin had no trouble beating anyone else in his path, and soon he tracked down where Kenpachi was waiting.Bleach, Dark Dawn, Ch27, The Kenpachi by cmd1095
Kenpachi stood in the middle of a street, large white buildings surrounded it. He wore his usual attire, a standard uniform underneath his tattered white haori. His sword rested at his side, it was a chipped and worn katana with a long blade to match Kenpachi's massive size.
Torin walked forward toward the captain, his own haori fluttering in the breeze, "Kenpachi Zaraki" he said "you know why I have come"
Kenpachi tilted his head "about that proposal of yours right?" He said "I'm still not interested in letting my squad fight alongside weaklings
Torin nodded "I know, which is why I have a challenge for you. We fight, if I win, you support my proposal and ensure your squad stays in line" he said
"And if I win?" Kenpachi asked
"I'll withdraw the proposal entirely, I have enough votes to force it through now, but without your squad it's p
Bleach, Dark Dawn Ch28, Integrating the SquadsIt was a few weeks after Torin's battle with Kenpachi, with both Byakuya and Kenpachi switching their votes, and Konamura backing the majority, Mayuri had no choice but to back down, albeit grudgingly, and Torin's proposal was unanimously passed.Bleach, Dark Dawn Ch28, Integrating the Squads by cmd1095
The squad intergration was going well so far, new and better formations were being made, and three man cells became a standard unit. Eache member of each cell was from a different squad, with rare exceptions, and each covered a different aspect of the group's combat. A common combination was 11th for offense, 3rd for defense, and 5th for support, just as Torin had initially suggested, but other combinations were working as well.
"All right, show me what you got" Torin said to the cell before him, before each cell was deployed they had to pass the inspection of a captain on their compatibility and teamwork.
An 11th divisioner charged with his shikai, a double edged broadsword. He slashed at Torin furiously, but couldn't seem to land any of his
Bleach Dark Dawn Ch29, Another side, Another storyIn the endless dessert of Hueco Mundo, a massive fortress was ablaze, smoke blotting out the sky as it billowed from the broken stone walls of Las Noches. Many arrancar patrolled the breaches to make sure no enemies infiltrated the palace.Bleach Dark Dawn Ch29, Another side, Another story by cmd1095
In the meeting room, Aizen sat in his throne, head resting on his folded hands
Beside him was Gin Ichimari, his face still set in that eternal squint and smile. He had his arms folded inside his excessively baggy sleeves.
"So whatcha gonna do Aizen, this Crisis fellow is really messing things up, your plans can't start till the hogyoku wakes up." Gin said
Aizen was silent, even when he was a captain he had gained no knowledge of this arrancar, there had been none, or so he thought. Crisis had just been a fairy tale, but now he was at war with that very tale!
"Call the espada, it is time to counterattack" Aizen said
Gin went to send out the message, and soon ten arrancar filed in.
"Thank you all for coming" Aizen said, as if they had a choice "I'm sur
Bleach Dark Dawn Ch30, Planning for the future"So isn't that a good thing?" Rida asked "One less enemy to fight right?"Bleach Dark Dawn Ch30, Planning for the future by cmd1095
Torin shook his head "the fact that Aizen is losing is an indicator of the strength of the enemy, in addition, if Aizen's army falls amd Crisis no longer has to worry about defending his control over Hueco Mundo…" he begam
"He con focus his full attention here" Aurora finished, realizing the consequences that would have
Torin nodded "The other captains I've spoken with agree on this point, if Crisis were to attack full force riht now, we would likely lose. Out power is diminished due to recent betrayals, not to mention the loss of Soi-Fon, our walls are damaged, and if the 2nd Daichiken is anything to judge by, Crisis himself will require the combined power of all the captains to defeat." He explained "that's why we need to get you and Aurora up to par. We're one of the best teams possible, the threee of us MIGHT be able to buy time for our counter-strategy to work"
"we have a plan?" Rida asked
Torin nodded "but
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
'Reprogrammed' Ch1, The End of the World The alarm clock blared, a screeching, ear-splitting electronic tone on endless repeat as the time flashed on a display screen. It was 7:30 AM, Sunday, March 21st, what seemed to be an ordinary day in the world. But for one particular young man, the day held special significance. With a groan, this young man reached out and hit the snooze button on his clock and closed his eyes to doze off for a bit longer. The young man’s name was Torin, he was, by all accounts, a normal 19 year old boy living a normal life. He never particularly stood out in anything, he was in shape, but not a spectacular athlete, he was intelligent, but only got average grades in school, he lived in a bland neighborhood with an ordinary middle class family. He was an average height and weight, with short, dark brown hair, fair complexion, no major scars or blemishes to speak of on his skin, and his wardrobe consisted mostly of plain T-shirts and jeans and shorts. His one feature that truly stood o'Reprogrammed' Ch1, The End of the World by cmd1095
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)
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.
