Title: Of Noble Purpose Author: Maugan Ra Fandom: Bleach Rating: T Status: WIP Length: ca. 180k words Link: Sufficient Velocity Summary: So yeah, Bleach quest. It's about a girl from the Shihoin family and it's about raising in the ranks of the Gotein 13, to make a name for yourself, redeem your family name and ultimately also take revenge on Yoruichi for her disgrace. It's pretty neat, all things considered. Quality of writing is pretty solid, the cast of original characters is pretty interesting, the way the votes go is rather good, I quite like the clan and nobility aspects and overall I really appreciate this sort of exploration of the Bleach world, especially the shinigami. The handle on canon characters is pretty good, especially given that we see them through the eyes of the main character and how that re-contextualizes them accordingly. Best example is Soi Fon who I generally like but in the quest am actively rooting against, simply because she is rather firmly aligned against our MC, what with the second division no longer being under Shihoin control and all, thanks to Yoruichi. A lot of interesting stuff happening in the story and while I can't say that there were any particularly memorable scenes or conversations or anything, it was an overall pleasant read that had me engaged throughout and I am still eagerly checking out new updates and am overall rather invested in the rise of the MC. Updates aren't exactly regular but still frequent enough on a few times a month. I took the liberty to link the reader mode but for anyone who wants to avail themselves to the discussions can do so with the click of a button, by clicking on view in thread on the top right. A generous 3.5-4/5 Abandoned: See this post for details. Updated by Zombie, Sept. 24th 2018.
