 So I got into Bleach and long story short I'm writing a fanfiction and I wish I wasn't.

(The long story, less short, is that I watched 200~ episodes in a week and a half and possibly sacrificed my chances of getting into college.)

It has been a long, long time since I wrote for an anime. I find myself hopelessly bewildered: no longer the bright-eyed fangirl I was back in the Inuyasha fandom, I am determined to do this right, breaking out my road map and directions from dubious sources, remembering too late that will inevitably get me lost. I find myself typing confidently down a page, only to find that I don't actually remember what sort of relationship a -chan denotes. There's a voice in the back of my mind telling me to just pull over and ask someone already but I set my jaw because I totally know what I'm doing although I don't and really, really wish I bought a GPS system.

Also I'm refreshing my memory of the characters off fan essays and that's probably a really bad idea. It'll probably land me somewhere in Illinois and Midwestern farmers will gather around me as I pratter to them about Orihime's fairies or something and they'll say things like "You're not from around here, are ya?" And then I will shock the town with my scandalously modern attitudes towards music and dancing. They'll try to keep me down, but I'll win them over with a passionate, Biblically laden speech to the town council where I will proclaim that this is our time to dance! The reverend's daughter and I slowly fall in love, and then everybody cuts--

Where was I going with this metaphor again? I think I got lost.

You'll be fine, I promise. ;)

(Also, that was a good metaphor and you should feel good.)

Thanks for the sentiment but I don't think so because arghhhhhh I misplaced my plot. Also I keep trying to write about a different character than the one I need to actually write about.

Well, you know, writing Bleach fiction when you really should do other things is really just an initiation into the fandom.
