Day 12: Hello, Again by hello heartbreak (T)

Fandom Category: Bleach
Pairing: Rukia Kuchiki/Ichigo Kurosaki
Fic Title: Hello, Again
Author: hello heartbreak
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3792896/1/Hello_Again
Rating/Warning(s): T / character death
Genre: Humor, Romance, Post-Canon
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Because it's the perfect ending, with Ichigo old and grey ready to die and Rukia waiting to bring him back to the Soul Society. This piece really captures their slightly odd at times relationship, leave it to Rukia and Ichigo to ruin such a solemn moment.

He doesn't bother squinting to find out where she is, because she always enters through the window. It doesn't matter where he is – his room, the kitchen, the hospital – she never uses the door.

Rating/Warning(s): PG-13 / blood, violence, spoilers for Soul Society arc

Special Rec: 16/30

Why This Must Be Read: This author has such a wonderful grasp of these two characters, and I loved reading both Rukia and Ichigo's point of views. Following them through three distinct points in the series these pieces really capture these two people and gives both Ichigo and Rukia such emotional depth; their interactions, banter, and the way they relate to one other is just pitch perfect, making this series a must read for any fan of this pairing.

When the Sun Comes Up, You Better be Moving by hecatehatesthat (T)

Fandom Category: Bleach
Pairing: Rukia Kuchiki/Ichigo Kurosaki
Fic Title: When the Sun Comes Up, You Better be Moving
Author: hecatehatesthat
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3330375/1/When_the_Sun_Comes_Up_You_Better_Be_Moving
Rating/Warning(s): T
Genre: AU, Adventure, Romance
WIP?: Yes

Why This Must Be Read: In a universe where Ichigo is able to defeat the soul reapers that come to retrieve Rukia; the two then go on the run before they can be caught by the reapers that are sure to be after them. The odds are certainly against them, and the author succeeds in making the reader feel the desperate nature of the situation at all times. In canon, Ichigo drops everything in order to go save Rukia and it's very interesting to read as Rukia mirrors his actions in this AU.
