Letter #1 - Ichigo to Rukia - Theme - "Amuse"  
So, joined a new writing comm, thanks to Kan-chan for suggesting it. It's called 10_letters, and you can write 10, 30, 50, or 100 letters either from 1 character or between a pair of characters. I took IchiRuki for my claim (surprise, surprise, right? XD) Not just bc it's my fav. OTP, but bc I actually had a cute idea for a fanfic and I want to use these letters to play into it. Basically, the premise that I'm writing about is a post-canon setting where Ichigo is in college and has gone off to study in America for a semester and Rukia has demanded that he write to her. The letters will lead up to the fic that I want to write, set when he comes back, like an epilogue or something.

Title: Changes
Rating: PG for language
Fandom: Bleach
Character: Kurosaki Ichigo to Kuchiki Rukia

Rukia -

God, this feels dumb. The hell did you make me promise to do this shit anyway, you know it's not like I'm gone for good or something, it's just for a semester. Sheesh, don't you guys have college in Soul Society? Or at least.... something like it? It's really not some big deal. Besides, this is a pain in the ass. But uh.... yeah. America's alright I guess, at least my hair blends in better here than it does at home. Hell, some people here actually tell me it looks cool.

So..... guess things are pretty boring there without me, that you want me to do this so bad. Heh, or maybe you just miss having someone around the abuse all the time? Oh, you'd get a kick out of the guy who sits next to me in chem-lab. Guy's totally mental, right up your alley. And by mental, I mean seriously off his gourd. For one thing, he's convinced he sees spirits. And NO, he can't actually see them, he doesn't even know what they look like. I mean, the guy's sitting there talking about bloody chained corpses looming over my shoulder and there's not a fucking thing there. Real idiot type. Likes cute things, go figure.

It's irritating, but kinda funny at the same time. Wonder what he'd do if he actually saw something. Probably shit himself. At least that'd be more amusing than that paranormal crap he always tries to drag me to. Anyway, uh.... yeah. Don't do anything stupid while I'm gone, NO I'm not bringing you anymore Chappy stuff, and tell Dad and Karin and Yuzu not to worry. I'm FINE, so they can stop calling every damned night. And... take care of yourself. Don't go get yourself hurt being dumb. Get Renji or someone to go hunting with you.

Haha, I like this. It totally sounds like Ichigo!

I've got to admit, usually I find 'letter fics' kind of dumb, mostly because the character who's writing the letter is completely OOC (and usually the plots are... er, yeah, you really don't want to know). But this... this is just

For one, Ichigo writes exactly how Ichigo should. There's no, 'My Darling Rukia, I miss you so much and can't wait until I'm basking in the warmth of your heart's glow once more', or, 'Hey Rukia, sup? M1ss u h3aps & Ill c u lat3r'; it's just completely IC. That, and I was laughing insanely all through the second paragraph. Ahhh... *chuckles*

Anyway, I'll be looking forward to your second installment. I think this is shaping up to be a fantastic fic, so keep it up!

Your layout is stunning, by the way. ♡

Thank you, I agree in regards to the hang-up with letter fics, and I appreciate the compliment. I DETEST OOCness in fics, so I try to keep it out of mine.

And thank you about the layout, I did it myself.

I hate OOCness too! Why use a character if you don't want them to act like they were originally designed to?!
This is both in character and amusing :)
You're a great writer for not making this sappy and lovey-dovey. People tend to do that so often it hurts :(((
I can't wait to read more!

Srsly, I can't stand OOCness, and I hate it when people make non-fluffy characters fluffy. I write a lot of NejiHina stuff, and people always do it with Neji too.

I mean, it IS v. possible to show a somewhat abrasive character like Neji or Ichigo actually revealing their soft side now and then. Like, I can write Neji being gentle with Hinata, or Ichigo being a caring father to his son or something like that, but still keep that edge and that almost awkwardness they both have with that sort of thing. Cuz the key to writing harsh characters in tender situations is to remember that they're also the sort who tend to have trouble showing that side of them, so it's never blatent or showy and it's often a bit awkward for them.

Re: hi

Neko-taichoutasogaretaichou on December 13th, 2008 10:40 pm (UTC)
Re: hi
You have to be more specific than that, dear. I have no idea what page you're talking about. Could you give me a link, maybe? Bc none of my fanfiction or anything requires codes to read. If you're talking about the big post with the tables, the code is just if you want to make a similar table in your own journal.

Re: hi
*Raises hand* Um....how do I do that? Im new...
Neko-taichoutasogaretaichou on December 13th, 2008 11:24 pm (UTC)
Re: hi
You can't just type the link of the page you're talking about? I have no problem helping you, but I can't do that if I don't have the basic information. You don't have to do anything fancy, just type the link of the page you're having problems with. ^__^

Re: hi
That would be because anything you can't click on isn't a link. There isn't anything there TO click on because it's not finished yet. ^__^
