[Filtered to Ichigo and Renji]

This is only getting worse. We're stuck here and now Shirayuki is barely speaking to me at all. There's more going on here that we can't see.

Ichigo. Has Zangetsu's demeanor changed in the last few days? If it hasn't...I don't know if they'll let you back into Soul Society; the ban might go both ways. But I don't think you should even try to come back yet.

I dunno what the hell Aizen's thinking. Even if the Arrancar don't just up and kill the Pluses and Hollows in the living world, they can't perform konso anyway, so it ain't like our "replacements" are doing such a remarkable job of replacing us. Zabimaru's been distant lately, too, which is...worrisome. I got a vicious papercut yesterday and he didn't even laugh at me. I wonder if he's sick...?

And Ichigo, I think maybe staying over there is a good idea even if the ban isn't instated from your end. Ishida and his old man and Orihime are all over there, and with the Arrancar running around they might need a hand.

I find it difficult to believe their mutual silence is a coincidence.

If this is to continue, we need to figure out the cause of this disturbance on our own. We can't just wait it out or rely on Captain Mayuri.

You're prolly right. I'm inclined to think if they were actually sick they'd...you know...say something. They're not me, for example.

Agreed; I don't like relying on Kurotsuchi in the best of situations. But what do you think we can do?

I'm on it. Coming back is not in the plan--relocating to Urahara-san's 'til this is over might be. I'm starting to feel the Manse Quincy isn't the safest spot on the block right now.

You're prolly right; if he stayed hidden all these years it's prolly safer there than just about anywhere. Take care'a yourself, greenhorn, and Hime, too. And I guess if you've got any time left over, keep an eye on those pesky Ishidas.

Zangetsu's... well, I guess despondent is really the only word I can use. He's never been a big talker, so I haven't noticed as great a gap as some of you, apparently, but it's definitely become worse.

It's a really freaky feeling to have to resort to the mask to fight some mid-level Hollow. I really hope this gets better, and soon.

I'll sit tight in the living world for now. I think that's best.

At least you've got that option--I'm glad you've got that line of defense open to you even if it wouldn't otherwise be the first choice.

If you do go to Urahara's to stay, keep an eye on Inoue all the same. I can't believe something this big could be planned to distract us from her when a straightforward fight would do, but that doesn't mean they won't take advantage if they can.

I'll go where Orihime goes, so... that's that. But I might talk to her about going to Sandal-Hat's, although then I'd have to bring Ishida Senior and Junior along for the ride, 'cause she's going nowhere without the Quincies.

Urahara and Ishida and his father in one place? Suddenly I'm even more frustrated that I can't get to the living world to see it.

...I was thinking more of digging a fallout shelter in the cellar first and stocking up on food and comic books, then letting them make the introductions.

You've already got his basement cavern to hide out in--do you really need a secondary shelter?

...maybe just in case.

Layers of protection, Rukia. Besides, it could get crowded. Lisa's already there, from what I hear.

... Okay, this is starting to sound kind of tired, but this makes me wish you were here. Or that I was there. Or that... well, meeting halfway would be good, too.

Good to see you thinking tactically. She is? That's a tremendous relief, then.

[Private]

Consider us both exhausted, then. It's always something, isn't it? I'm starting to wonder if we're cursed.

Were things this bad, you know, before? I'm not sure they were. But it does figure we wouldn't manage to do this the easy way, either.

Before, we weren't even talking to each other. It seems like a waste now.

Maybe it's selfish, considering everything that's happening. But it's not like we're asking for much. I'd settle for being in the same room at this point.

Shit. I almost managed to forget we were actively ignoring each other a few months back. Goddamn irony.

Any day now, I'm gonna go ask Urahara-san to jury-rig an illegal gate so I can pop in for an evening. I miss the lot of you, but... you even more. You know.

I'd say it's a perfect joke, but I'm not laughing.

The same for me. But even if you can, I'm not sure you should. It feels like something's changing...it might be better to keep Zangetsu away. But I'd rather have you closer than a world away. When things settle, no matter when it is, let's just get out of here for an evening.

Oh hell yes. Get out of Seireitei, Karakura, and everywhere there are people we even remotely know. That's a deal and I'm gonna hold you to it.

...Something's changing? You mean with the zanpakutou, or something else? Like, there could be a risk if I brought Zangetsu into Seireitei?

It says something of this situation that that sounds plausible, or even probable, rather than crazy.

I'm looking forward to that, believe me.

It might just be that I'm paranoid, but it's like the zanpakutou have gotten quieter. Like there's something we don't know--something else. The only thing they've got in common is that they're all here.
