- Bleach (1)
Kurosaki Ichigo had been gone a week, swiped from one second to the next from a street in Karakura without a trace left for them to follow. Now he was leaned against a tree in Soul Society and looked like he had been through hell. His robes were tattered and frayed as if years had passed, blood dripped from his limp left arm, and his hair was longer and uneven with knots of what she hoped was dirt and not clotted blood. His reiatsu was more wild and unthethered than she had ever seen.
In the end, he fails to protect everyone but somehow Ichigo has found his way back and has a chance to fix what was destroyed. Including himself.
