Damn you pollen! And why can't I finish anything lately?  
And thus begins the annual sneezefest until everything blooms.  My car was green and fuzzy when I got in it this morning.  Ugh!  At least this year I can take Claritin.  Finding out I was pregnant at this time last year was not fun at all.  Well, the pregnant part was fun.  Not being allowed to take anything- not fun. 

So, I think I need to write a Byakuya/Renji story.  Yeah, I know what you're going to say- what about "P&C" and gee, its been over a year since the last chapter of "Light."   And you're right, this might just be a pipe dream on my part.  I've been reading this pairing for a while and have been, for the most part, unsatisfied.  It's not the quality of the writing per se, but the characterizations.  I just can't see Renji topping Byakua without a damn good reason.  What I mean is this- Renji has a very deep respect for his captain and there is a CLEARLY DEFINED line in their taicho/fukitaicho relationship.  Now, us being non-Japanese tend to overlook just how unlikely it would be for either one of these characters to cross said line without said damn good reason.  Renji, even if he harbored unrequited love for his captain, would repress, repress, repress so as to not insult or shame the other.  And Byakua, if he harbored unrequited love for his lieutenant, would repress, repress, repress because he is not only in a position of authority, but because he got burned in the love department once before, and I don't think I have to mention pressure from the family, do I?  I have yet to see any of this fully explored in a story..at least to my satisfaction.  So, I guess that means I'll have to do it myself.  

I really need to write and finish something.  Especially since my Gundam 00 story crashed and burned- literally and figuratively.

Good luck with the allergie ^^ It's good you can take something this year!

and errrr "what about P&C?" I felt like I had to ask ;p
lol, you write what you feel like writing, it's never been any use to push oneself for that kind of matter (though I guess I'm not one to talk). Or a little bit of a push ? It's just kinda healthy for ze art sometimes ?
As long as you get back to it ;)
And good and logical characterization... Keep up the fight!

The will is strong, but the body is weak. I'm just so tired after work. It's killing my attention span and thus, no writing. I'll keep trying though.

and I guess with the baby you don't get as much sleep either... first take care of yourself, then comes the writing ^^

"What about P&C?!"
Aw, man, sad to hear about the G00 crash, but it's totally understandable.

I agree with your Renji/Byakuya peeve, but even Bya/Ren seems unlikely if it's done all sweet and cuddly. They were trying to kill each other not too long ago, although I got the feeling Byakuya really respects his vice captain more because of it. Renji idolizing his captain and Byakuya's loneliness could trigger something - I loved the hospital scene later when Renji stayed at Byakuya's bedside.

Did you ever read some of the Bleach drabbles by peroxidepest on Byakuya? I loved the way she portrays him in a few of those. ;)

Re: "What about P&C?!"
I avoid any Ren/Bya that even bordelines "cute or cuddly." My brain cannot compute the warm fuzziness. I mean come on, this is Byakuya we're talking about here.

I once read a story-can't remember the name or author- where Renji was severely wounded saving Byakuya's life. Thinking he was about to die, Renji confesses his love. This, of course, knocks Bya for a loop and after Renji recovers he feels the need to take Renji as his lover. Not necessarily because he loves him, but for his sense of obligation to Renji for saving his life. Renji realizes this on some level, but doesn't want to rock the boat so to speak. It was unfinished and I haven't seen it in the Bya/Ren comm in a long time so I suppose it never will be, but it was the only story I felt that captured the restraint in a deliciously angsty way. And the angst sex was great too! I guess that's what I see missing from this pairing.
