This Is War Chapter 4The War Intensifies
Our two heroes are in the worst place they could possibly be. They were in an alternate world where both sides were at war with each other because, according to what they’ve been told, they think that the other side is helping their side’s nemesis. When thinking about all of this, Toushiro was actually glad that his Vegeta wasn’t with him right now. Because if he had been, then our young captain would’ve had a HELL of a time explaining that to his counterpart and his comrades! Same thing for Vegeta. Our saiyan prince was actually glad that he had failed in catching up with Toushiro in the vortex. For if he had and they had landed where he did, he would’ve had a VERY hard time protecting him from his own counterpart and his friends. This was a situation where it was best if they tried to avoid becoming too involved in this world’s problems to begin with. Unfortunately they didn’t have much choice than to agree to aid e
This Is War Chapter 3We Are At War
Spinning and twirling around and around! That all Toushiro was aware of. He tried to get himself straight, but couldn’t. He wondered where he was going. He wondered what was at the end. Would it be friend or foe? He would soon find out as he was suddenly thrown out of the vortex and crashed into the dirt! The landing had been hard and rough. The young captain moaned and groaned as he slowly sat up and rubbed the side of his head.
Toushiro: “Ugh... That hurt...”
At first he wasn’t aware of it, but he wasn’t alone. There were people gathering around the small crater he had made during his crash landing. Only when there was a sufficient number did the young captain finally notice. He looked up and saw a bunch of... Soul Reapers? And they weren’t just any Soul Reapers, either. They were from his squad.
Toushiro: “Uh, hey guys. What’s going on?”
But instead of greeting him, all of his men just stared at him. Toushiro
This Is War Chapter 22 Weeks Prior
Vegeta: “SOOOO SUE me, Ikkaku!!”
Ikkaku: “You think you’re a match for me, Vegeta?!!”
Lunch was not usually a very loud event in the Seireitei. In fact it had been such a nice day so far that many were eating outside. The Squad 10 captain and two lieutenants were some of the many who were outside eating when Ikkaku Madarame, 3rd Seat of Squad 11, came by. One thing led to another and now Toushiro and Rangiku, as well as anyone else within earshot, were finding out what happens when two hot heads clashed. However, Toushiro was the only one within this category who just shrugged and continued eating. He’d seen Vegeta get into so many fights that it didn’t even bother him much anymore. Rangiku was different.
Rangiku: “Can they get any louder?”
Toushiro didn’t even stop eating.
Toushiro: “Oh yeah!... Give ‘em five minutes, Rangiku, and I can assure you that Vegeta at least will be heard beyond the
This Is War Chapter 1The End Of The Beginning?
Coge: “Ha-ha-ha! The Hogyoku is MINE!”
With the Hogyoku in Coge’s possession, there was nothing that anyone could do. The mad saiyan used the Hogyoku to transform himself into a giant, powerful monster. He looked like a spinosaurus and a dragon combined. He towered over everyone! And his power was overwhelming. It was too much for anyone to try and fight alone.
Coge: “With this much power, I’ll have no problem annihilating all you weaklings!”
Yamamoto: “I’m issuing an immediate order! Everyone is to concentrate their power onto this monster!”
All together, the 13 Court Guard Squads attacked Coge! But none of them seemed to do much except annoy him. Meanwhile, the Z-Fighters just looked on.
Yamcha: “Should we help them?!”
Krillin: “Why should we?! It’s because of THEM that the situation’s gotten this bad!”
Gohan: “But Coge’s OUR problem!”
Holding On Chapter 10Coming Home
With the beast gone for good and the assassins dead, Rurichiyo was safe once again. However... They were still lost.
Rurichiyo: “So what now? Where do we go?”
Toushiro: “I... I don’t know... Vegeta didn’t say what to do beyond the volcanos...”
Rurichiyo: “A-Are you sure?”
Toushiro nodded. He remained silent as he tried to think things out. He was sure that Vegeta told him the truth about how to get home. Was it HIS fault? Did he misinterpret what Vegeta said? Did they make a wrong turn somewhere?... DID Vegeta give them the right directions? A gentle breeze swept against his face. Strangely... He felt like something was pulling at his chin to make him gaze up to the clouds. He complied and gazed heavenward. The stars shined brightly down on them even though the sun was just minutes away from rising. Toushiro closed his eyes and remembered something from long ago.
The stars shined brilliantly tonight a
Holding On Chapter 9The Final Push
SPLASH! Toushiro jumped into a pool of rich mineral water. As he swam around, the tar started coming off no problem at all. Rurichiyo sat on the edge and took the opportunity to clean up a little too. It was hard to believe, but in a few hours the sun would rise and mark what would be the day they’ve been missing for two weeks now. So far they’ve done well to get this far on their own. But now they had a serious problem. Just beyond them was a mountain of jagged sharp rocks and pillars. However Vegeta had not told them what to do beyond the volcanos. Rurichiyo looked up and saw the young captain swimming towards her. When he emerged, all the tar on his skin and clothes were gone.
Toushiro: “Phew! That feels better.”
Rurichiyo: “Especially since you’re not carrying like ten pounds of tar on ya!”
Toushiro: “ESPECIALLY that!”
Both Toushiro and Rurichiyo laughed. But their moment of joy was abruptly cut short! A fa
Holding On Chapter 8Liquid Fire
For nine days they walked and climbed, always following the direction of the rising sun. They rarely stopped, wanting to stay as far ahead of the monster as possible. Their feet were sore, their legs ached. But still they continued on, knowing that they were indeed going the right way... The way to home. They were following the rising sun and have passed a great rock that resembled a bear standing up. Now they just had to head east beyond burning mountains of liquid fire. The liquid fire was a clue and they both had an idea what it was that they needed to search for. And the ash fluttering down from the sky and covering the ground told them they were close. However the climb up a shallow mountain was hard. They were both tired.
Toushiro: “Come on, Rurichiyo... We’re almost there.”
Rurichiyo: “Could you please slow down, Hitsugaya. My feet are killing me.”
Toushiro: “Mine too. But we have to keep going. I don’t want that
Holding On Chapter 7A Break
Rurichiyo: “God I’m so HUNGRY!!”
Toushiro: “You’re hungry? I’m empty all the way to the top.”
It’s been three whole days since they began their journey back home... And a day since they last ate anything decent. The remote and emptiness of where they were was apparent to them now. For it has been some time since they last saw anything colored other than beige and rusty gold.
Rurichiyo: “I’m so hungry I’ll eat anything!”
Toushiro: “Don’t say that or you’ll have to live up to it.”
Rurichiyo: “Good point...”
Toushiro was looking around as hard as he could. He absolutely could not believe that there wasn’t something out here they could eat. For one he has seen a small number of small animals running around just before they would scatter and hide within the rocks. And some of them were herbivorous animals! So there HAD to be SOMETHING out here or else how could th
