Yo, AJ here. There’s probably only a handful of people who know me since I haven’t exactly been as active lately. The reason for that is a combination of work and also my 10y/o laptop finally giving up the ghost, so to speak. And while work has stabilized (somewhat), my computer issue hasn’t been completely resolved. Posting from my tablet was more annoying than productive. But, there’s a possible bright light on the horizon; a friend of mine gave me her unused laptop, which is much newer and in much better condition than my previous one. I’m currently doing a full wipe and reinstall of the OS, so hopefully I’ll be back up and posting sometime this week. To my thread partners, I haven’t forgotten about you or our threads, I ask that you guys be patient with me for a little longer, I promise to get posts out to you guys ASAP, going in order of oldest thread to newest. For those who are interested in threading with me, feel free to check out my meta thread and shoot me a message on discord at AJ the Chef#1122
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.
