While I'm fine, the aftereffects, I'm learning, are damaging in other areas. Job's been closed for two days -- we're a restaurant, and we certainly planned to be open if at all possible, because there's tons of money to be made and lots of exposure to our growing, quality brand -- BUT GODDAMMIT THE POWER IS OUT.
I live like 3 miles away in the same city, same road basically just further down. Me and everyone else have power, but down there does not. Props to the electric companies because there's many Floridians without electricity (some 4million the day after the storm, likely less by now). So, for the time being, my otherwise slow pace will be halted while I sort through the effect(s?) of what may either be a quick recovery or a slow financial smothering while I wait for my job to power back up.
Seireitei is crumbling and the Gotei is a shell of its former self. Ravaged by the plague, the surviving Shinigami struggle to maintain the balance, but with so few of them left, the work is taxing and their fortress-city has fallen to neglect. Spread thin across all fronts, their diminished presence has been noted by friend and foe alike.
The Arrancar have rebuilt Las Noches and are rallying. The throne remains empty, but self-styled Espada have risen up from among them and are vying for control, each one endlessly testing the others’ weaknesses. Too evenly matched for any one of them to claim the crown, they bide their time, waiting for the opportune moment.
On Earth, all seems well—but there is a war being fought in the shadows as the mortals find themselves lacking the protection they once had and so sorely need. The Quincy, having realized the oppressive specter of the Shinigami is no more, are flourishing, and are fighting the Hollow-breeds with renewed vigor.
