Welcome to Bleach Platinum Hearts RP! This is a Bleach Role Playing Forum set in the year 2416, over 400 years away from the Original Bleach's timeline. It has elements of both canon and custom for a unique mixture of role playing never seen before on Bleach. To get started, please sign up and read our starter guide:
Mirja spent a few seconds casting her eyes over the crowd while Henrex reacted with general blade drawing and sharp shuriken. Not that they would bother Mirja in the slightest, even if he threw them all day. And if he did throw some, Mirja could respond by punching him into the stratosphere, so it all worked out pretty well. The gathered persons were many and varied, but Mirja found her eyes drawn most intently to an incredibly cute darling, silent but ominously beautiful. Mirja was smitten - but then Mirja got smitten with stairs if they were sufficently cute, so it was no big deal - and gave a large smile and a wave when the woman looked in their direction. A few others that were around seemed to react to Henrex and Mirja, but the ashen-haired wolf had eyes for only one person.
Well, technically two, as Henrex reminded her of his presence by Flash Stepping away, and exclaiming 'don't touch me'. Hell of a way to thank Mirja for giving him Arianda's location and reccomendation so he could get his demon half under control rather than hiding it from the world like he did. At least, that was the plan, weither it worked out that way or not, she wasn't entirely sure. She'd not been in contact much with her ex-mistress for a while.
Henrex was so cold now, it was like he didn't really love Mirja. Just wanted to spout crap for the sake of spouting crap. Is how Mirja saw the sudden 180 turn, emotionally. Had he actually harbored feelings towards Mirja, he would have.....don't anything other than say don't touch me. It was a surprisingly hostile comment, but not one that bothered Mirja. "Huh, and here I thought we were getting somewhere. Even Iko wanted me to apologise to you for the whole, claws incident because you are not a bad person. And you know how she is with guys? But, if that's your outlook" She told Henrex, turning from him with a flick of her tail, as if his dismisal was as jarring as a car breaking from 1 mph to 0 mph.
Instead, Mirja walked over to the silent white haired girl. Unaware of nationality, or even race at this moment, Mirja just nodded, gave a warm smile, and stood next to her to watch the Drill. Vastime sounded like an interesting place full of interesting mortals, and she was glad that they were getting back on their feet, militarily speaking. This show of force from the Humans would be turning heads like nobody's business, but not all of those heads would look upon Vastime in a negetive manner. Mirja, was one who was interested positively. She looked to the leader, and waved at him erratically.
"Hey, Big guy!" she exclaimed, before pausing for a moment. The phrase didn't sound exactly right, and a couple of seconds of looking showed why. The man - she had heard someone call him Hayden, with her sharp sharp ears - was not actually that tall. Mirja was a fair few inches over him, even bare foot. But he had a commanding presence that made him look bigger than he actually was. "Umm...Hayden! I'm here to help you guys be awesome!" she exclaimed, her tail swishing excitedly as she waved, a grin on her face that had mirth and madness so perfectly mixed.

[PLAY POSTING MUSIC]
ENTER THE DEPTHS
Artist: ocoeur - Song: 1.11 - Word Count: N/A
”Living is the hard part, dying is easy.”
That phrase cemented itself within the mind of Liu for a few moments before she bothered to give it a reply. The reason being is because she felt that it was part true, part false. For some living could be quite a breeze and was quite the alternative to dying. As it is embed within most living beings to cling to life no matter how dire the circumstances of living become. While, in other circumstances, it would be objectively easier to die if the situation of one's lives was so grim that no hope or liberation could be found.
So, as Animum gave that blank expression, Liu could only shrug off the matter because of the fact either could take the others place depending on where the stream of the universe takes a person in this path of life.
"I agree and disagree on that. For some living can be hard because of the cowardice and instinct that a person has to want to live this life no matter how much suffering they have. While, to others, dying could be such an easier thing to do because they'll find true liberation in the release of death and no longer will they have to worry about the trivial matters of living. 'Tis all about where the streams of this universe takes a soul on this road of life~"
And with that, Liu would give a shrug and decided to simply let the rest of the events unfold as they were. As, from what she could observe from this gathering, it seemed they were going the path of rigid subjugation to attain a grimace of liberation and freedom. Trading the individuality of one for the collective cause of many. And -- that was fine by this Hell Demon. As, to restate, neither liberation or subjugation are right or wrong in the mind of both herself and her other half. To them, it was simply amusing to watch how the universe cycles between these elements and to witness what types of infused slavery and freedom can be had in this world by observing.
So, on that note, Little Miss Liu wouldn't bother making a single peep after the whole ceremony had been done. Instead, she would take her place in the background and begin to watch as things unfolded. Meanwhile, Nizhuan would have gleefully witnessed all of the platoons of soldiers beginning to march down and perform their drill. This was definitely something that The Hell Beast wanted to become a part of as she could feel the order resonating from every bit of space which encompassed this country. She expected great things of it and was proud to be an ally of it because of the fact it represented her element so much!
Therefore, before Nizhuan to would take her bow, she'd nudge Hayden and wink at him as her face turned over into a wide grin:
"Well, you have both of our support! You should remember that above all else! I will be expecting a lot of you! We need more order in this world. Yes, yes!"
And with that, The Hell Beast would let the man go on and lead his people as she folded her eyes and observed from this point onward.
[OOC NOTE: you all can now skip me in the next rounds unless I'm needed. Liu/Nizhuan are just going to watch in the background. This is more or less establishing them as allies to the nation now.]

The Broken Raven
Descend Into Darkness
Ice cold were the words that came from the mouth of Henrex. Venom lay behind them, as if the words themselves hated the one they were meant to speak to. But yet Henrex himself had not said them. It was something else that was living within him. Whatever it was, it had gotten irritated from the fear that resided in Henrex from the wolf girl, so the being in the recesses of his mind took hold of his voice, speaking for him, and saying those words that Henrex immediately regretted his mind ever letting him say that.
As his hand began to slip away from the shining silver weapon in his sleeve, his head perked up from the voice that he heard behind him, and his body whipped around, staring face to face with a man in a uniform, with a gaze filled with authority and determination. Henrex's face drained of color, and his arms shot back to his sides, with his eyes shutting. His nervousness had gotten the better of him, and he had reached for a weapon. Opening his eyes one again, he could feel the scar over his left eye rippling as the man's gaze pierced into him.
"Y-Yes, sir. Sorry."
Turning back around the face Hayden, he quickly found himself being spoken to by someone else. Again, his Zanpakutō spirit questioned his actions, his wording, and his harshness towards Mirja. The spirit within didn't exactly scold him, but more so was curious and was much more gentle than he had been during other conversations. Normally the spirit was very blunt and direct, oftentimes to the point where it was borderline insulting.
Why were you so harsh towards Mirja? I can tell that you still harbor what you did before towards her. Why are you so cold and heartless now?
Because I was afraid.
Afraid of what?
Afraid of Mirja! I don't like having a giant hole in my stomach that took a WEEK to heal, Chiya! I didn't even say anything...it was...him.
Yes...now what I was going to say is pointless now.
The spirit scoffed inside the head of Henrex, before sighing, as he soon realized what he had said was in fact true. While Chiya didn't know what the thing that had spoken for Henrex was, he knew that after something like that, Mirja would be...very hard to speak to, much less apologize to. Henrex quietly sighed as he felt the regret of his idiocy take hold. He would have to wait for a chance to speak with Mirja, and hopefully apologize. Now was not that time.
As his eyes set themselves on the presentation of the Vastime's Drill Exhibition, he found himself studying the movements of the soldiers, planting seeds of memory within his mind and Cyberbrain, making sure that he would remember this. He was curious. With a cleared mind, Henrex could now fully think straight. One of the things that came from his cleared mind, and his eyes gazing at the presentation was curiosity. He could quite put his finger on it, but there was something about this that kept his attention. But then it was still there. That nagging feeling that he needed to get this done now.
So, he did just that.
Taking a small piece of paper out of a small notepad in his pocket, Henrex quickly took out a pen and began to write. While he had no flat surface to write properly, so his handwriting would be much more sloppy than it usually would be, but he quickly wrote a small note to Mirja. Quickly utilizing his skill in Flash Step, he zipped over to Mirja, using the moment of immense movement to quickly place the note in her hands, before flash stepping back over to his original position. To the untrained eye, it would be as if Henrex had disappeared from his position for a split second.
For the perceptive, they would have seen his movements, and most likely have been able to see him move towards Mirja and place the note down. But, what was in that note? Well, it would be a short explanation on what had happened with what he said, an apology for that, as well as a thank you for everything she had done for him. Mirja might have expected a sappy, depressing message, but that was not the case. It was very straightforward and direct, as well as very serious. So, with that out of the way, the only thing that Henrex had on his mind was swirling thoughts of the Vastime Nation. Perhaps they could use a ninja in their ranks, despite them being outdated for hundreds of years.
After all, it wasn't that bad of a decision to join something like this, now was it?
Nope. It seemed Not-Really-That-Big Guy didn't react to her call to him. She contemplated shouting even louder, Mirja could get some serious volume when she put her lungs into it, but then decided against it and looked to the small girl besides her.
She seemed very quiet, like talking wasn't her thing at all. Which kind of sucked, so she looked around for the other people. They all looked gruff and or insane, so she stayed were she was and watched the drill with a growing sense of irritation. They were just doing a dance, from how she saw it. Nobody was getting shot. Specifically not Henrex. Growing bored from that, she decided to look around the ground for stones she could surreptitiously flick at Henrex. Before she found a good one, however, she felt a very big sneeze coming on, which she tried to restrain, but eventually couldn't, and it came out all the louder for her attempts at restraint.
Great. Now the people in the next town over would have heard her sneezing, and she had no idea what to do next. There was a piece of paper in her hand, now soggy and ruined from the sneeze that had decimated it's papery body, but then she smiled. She was clayvoiant, she knew she was going to sneeze before she sneezed, and so got a piece of paper ready just for it. Haha! She was glorious! Of course, her hand hadn't managed to catch it all, and some droplets hit the ground like small marbles. Discarding the sodden piece of paper, she continued to watch until some guy appeared. A guy that was actually pretty cute, even though Mirja usually didn't go for guys.
So, she left her silent girl and walked up to the guy, her tail swishing elegantly, and a smile on her lips that was warm with a hint of eccentric. Trying to hide her fangs failed, so she just bore them and hoped for the best as she grinned broadly at the guy. "Hey~ You are a very nice looking human, were I not worried about breaking you, I'd take you back to my lair for the production of pups" She exclaimed. In her head, it sounded like a perfectly good compliment, and a great way to start the conversation. Other people, might not view it so well...
