I support many Bleach couples, despite the fact that non-canon pairings twist characters. However, I hate IchiRuki so vehemently, because I feel as though it's not just twisting the characters, but mocking them. Statements from them in the manga, Kubo's own reassurances, and other characters chipping in to support the same precious-nakama relationship, seems to do nothing to change it's lead pairing status. It sickens me, because I just can't force myself to picture Ichigo and Rukia that way and even Kubo doesn't seem to like the idea.
Soo, earlier today, the lovely jennypen responded to my request for teas to be made for all of the Tiger&Bunny verses that I write in/for… which, if you aren’t aware of them, might I direct you to this post? :)
