[Bleach] Deathsong: Index

Title: Deathsong
Fandom: Bleach
Characters/Pairings: Ichigo, Rukia, Renji / IchiRuki
Genres: action/adventure, romance, friendship
Word Count: ~58,000, eleven chapters & epilogue

Rating: T for violence and language.

Summary: Post-series. An accident has unexpected ramifications, and Ichigo suddenly faces a new life and a new threat in Soul Society. Living is never as simple as it seems.

Notes: This story is canon-compliant up through chapter 405. This means no tiny!Zangetsu, no redeemed!Gin, and absolutely no Most-Beautiful-Butterfly!Aizen. All further extrapolations are my own.

My thanks first go to jade_sabre_301, for betaing, for her righteous fury over my weakness for adverbs, and for being so patient as I agonized over tenses. Thanks for being gentle with my drabble-writer’s rough transition into chaptered fic, hon, and I hope I haven't tormented you with this fandom too long. ♥

Secondly, I would like to thank my mother for her help with several key plot points. This fanfic would not exist as it is without her input.

Soundtrack: I have created a playlist of the songs I listened to while writing this. If you’re interested, you can listen to it here on
