and as the world comes to an end
i’ll be here to hold your hand
‘cause you’re my king
and i’m your lionheart
i don't know why, but i could never see ichiruki as a thing especially in the beginning where both ichigo and rukia berate each other constantly. also the fact when ichigo in the beginning is like "what the hell are you doing in my house?" and instead of either explaining shit to him or just simply leaving rukia goes and uses a kido spell on him. like that is rude as hell. if i saw that relationship as anything it was more of a mentor/student one after ichigo got his powers.
