People should acknowledge the flaws of their ships because it makes them more realistic. If couples in real life have issues then so will fictional ones! Admitting this makes the ship both imperfect yet genuine.
Some days I’m just scrolling Tumblr, when it suddenly hits me how beautiful and romantic IchiRuki is.
They’re King and Queen.
Black Sun and White Moon.
They share destiny.
An unbreakable bond.
A Honeymoon Spread.
She’s his Ray of Light.
TK: “I learned that the word “Rukia” means “light.” She’s like a ray of light for Ichigo, which makes the name really suit her.“
She dried his rain.
She understood him from the beginning.
“I have no right to know. I don’t have a method of stepping into the depths of your heart without it getting dirty. So I’ll wait. When you want to talk, when you think it’s okay to talk….talk to me” Rukia, chapter 20.
He couldn’t keep up with the worlds’ pace without her.
They paralleled IsshiMasa (one of the most beautifully written couples in Bleach).
insert the exact same “I’ve come to save/protect you” speech here
She changed his world.
They shared the most romantic panels in this whole manga.
He gained power for her sake.
This isn’t even half of it. Throughout the whole manga, they encourage each other to be stronger and worry for each other constantly. Both brought each others despair to an end. Because they are partners, and the most beautiful Bleach ship.
“That’s right. From the very beginning, he never changed. Just by that one man’s unchanging resolve…everyone’s, my own. One million years of Soul Society’s unwavering rigidity…all of them were wiped clean….Ichigo….!” Rukia
