Review:
For reasons that really don't matter at this junction, Ichigo is next in line to be king of Soul Society (just go with it). As part of his coronation, he has to get courted by a representative of each of the four noble families and then marry one. Guess who the Kuchiki family is putting forth as a potential bride. (Hint: Ichigo likes to call her 'midget'.)

This is a whole barrel of fun. It's a bit silly at times and there's enough cheese for a whole boatload of sandwiches, but Ichigo and Rukia are cute, the representatives are entertaining, the 'courting' done by the two non-Rukia canon characters is hilarious (and only has a small potential for fatalities), the evil OC isn't terribly evil (and her attempts to break up Rukia and Ichigo mostly provide fodder for more cuteness), and nearly every named character in Bleach manages at least a cameo. If you're in the mood for some humor tinged with a hint of wackiness and maybe a touch of crack, this is the fic for you.

Review:
Ichigo dies. Which in the Bleach universe just means that it's time to go to Soul Society and be a shinigami full-time. The good news is that Rukia is there to greet him when he dies. The bad news is that, after a nasty break-up decades before, he and Rukia have no idea where they stand with each other. Lots of angsting and thick-headedness ensues.

I didn't realize this until after I'd finished the fic, but Jania has written all three of the Bleach stories I've recced to date. As with her other fics, the writing is great, the characterizations are brilliant, and the flashbacks (inevitable when a story begins with a person dying) are deftly handled and surprisingly interesting. Best of all, however, is her dialogue, which is tone perfect and shines with awesomeness; I'd be happy to read an entire fic with nothing but Jania's dialogue.

For those who, like me, are a bit wary of anime/manga fandoms, this is a good story to see just how much potential can be mined from the fandom by a skillful author. A highly enjoyable tale.

Review:
After the war with Aizen is over, Rukia and Ichigo start dating. A year after that, it's time to Take the Next Step. Except that Soul Society is full of the nosiest people on earth (and also Rukia's scary overprotective brother) and Ichigo still lives at home with his perverted father and two baby sisters. What are two horny shinigami to do?

This is just plain awesome. From Ichigo worrying about being a virgin (but also being, you know, male and thus mostly really, really eager); to the Secret of Rukia's Deflowering (which has a brilliant payoff); to the Quest for a Private Space; to that rarest of rare finds in fanfic: first time sex that actually sounds like first time sex, this story is full of humor and affection and Soul Society cameos. Very funny and very entertaining.

Author's Summary:  Zoro and Sanji bust their way into the Court of Pure Souls. Hijinks ensue.

Review:  I had no idea that a scenario in which various Strawhats die (of old age, and it's not dwelled on) and wake up in Soul Society could work so well.  The entire first chapter was just one laugh after another.  Everyone is so in character that it hurts, and Peroxidepest's attention to detail really brings out the zaniness - although, of course, this was written some time ago, so some plot developments in both series are necessarily omitted.  Even just the first chapter is worth the read, but I recommend the entire story, because you don't want to miss Sanji with a tempermental zanpakuto, or Zoro and Kenpachi as BFFs.
