As requested by powerpun. :)
For this post, we will imagine that Ulquiorra has been revealed as the Soul King. How would everybody react?
Gin: Wow. Ulquiorra was sure full of secrets, wasn’t he?
Tosen: I always sensed he was regal.
Tosen: But I always assumed it was because he had so much style.
Aizen: NOPE NOPE NOPE
Aizen: MY FAVORITE ESPADA IS NOT THE FREAKIN’ SOUL KING
Aizen: I mean, not that I didn’t know the whole time.
Grimmjow: [adds ‘locked the Soul King in a caja negacion’ to his resume]
Byakuya: We should have seen this coming, of course.
Byakuya: Ulquiorra always gives clothes to the people whose alliance he desires.
Byakuya: And here we all are, wearing the ‘Soul King’s’ clothes.
Ichigo: Ulquiorra is the Soul King?
Ichigo: My inner hollow face stomped and ceroed the Soul King?
Ichigo: That’s so awkward.
Ichigo: Oh my strawberry! I just remembered I offered to cut off my arm and leg and give him a rematch!
Ichigo: I hope he doesn’t still remember that!
Ulquiorra: I remember.
Ishida: A rematch is exactly what *I* want! Last time we met, that guy tore off my arm and flicked away my arrows like they were nothing!
Ishida: This time he’s going DOWN!
Chad: Ishida, is this why you joined the Quincy?
Orihime: So the Soul King and the heir to the Quincy throne are both super into me, huh?
Orihime: [cracks knuckles]
Orihime: I’ll have this war wrapped up by lunchtime!
