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:
It's starting to look a lot like, Christmas~! Which was kind of strange, because Christmas was over. People had done the whole thing and now they were back to doing the rest of the year thing. So Ulv just decided to let people do what they wanted and question why exactly it was looking like Christmas later. People were weird, she couldn't make everyone see properly, and she was a people, so clearly there was going to be issues in translation of her thought to her understanding that thought. Much like there was issues in translating what The Wind told her, to what she could understand.
Grasp The Earth, Grasp The World. Yes, she got it. She understood intimately. She saw it carved into walls because it was endlessly repeated in her ears and that was really it. She was developing, she knew where she was going to an extent, but did they have to keep on saying it? This snowy, nostalgic, comfortable place was a good place to practice, since the snow was so thick and heavy that actually grasping the Earth was hard. It made her realize that not all the time would she be on the Earth earth.
She kicked off a few times, but it didn't work out as well as she had hoped, and one time she caught her foot on something almost buried and face-planted into the plow. It was then that her ears picked up the talking of a man. He was questioning himself, it seemed. And where he was going on the road of Life. Ulv let him talk to himself for a bit, and then got up and Ulv'd over to him. He was a familiar man, yet another one of those she knew before she was born. She was at odds. On one hand, the development of Earth-Grasping Step showed her that The Earth was vaster than she could ever possibly comprehend. And yet, running into people she knew constantly, made The Earth seem really small.
"Your debate came to my ears and there are two questions to be asked. ONE! Which path can help the most people in need? TWO! Who needs the most help to reach their potential. Where you go lies in the answer to these two questions" Ulv exclaimed, putting her hands on her waist and sounding rather smart, considering she was covered in snow, wore the scruffiest overalls in the history of humanity, and was sporting a head of snow-flecked hair that looked as if it had never even heard that things like a Comb existed.
Ulv pondered for a moment. The debate was a good one, and not one that Ulv was in a position to answer. She didn't know either of the two factions properly. But, she did know the leader of one of them. So she gave her point of view, and hoped it would help him out. "One sage may do the work of a thousand fools. Respect does not guarantee proficiency, it could just be riding the coattails of the past. Resting on their laurels. On the other hand, a small group allows for a closely knit community where everyone knows what they are doing, and why they are doing it. Having past errors gives perspective as to what to avoid. And Rakki is a very good leader, from what I saw. Has her head on right, cares deeply for her people, is a little bit crazy, and has someone to love"
Ulv smiled softly at the last bit. Rakki had someone to love, and Ulv had someone to love. The pair were completely opposed in nature, and yet got along so perfectly. Her heart thumped to think about Rakki. And it was a deep, intense feeling of love that made her feel like she didn't need to know who she was. 'Rakki's Lover' was enough identity for her to get on. "Still, the Quincy sound like the best to go for. The Vanguard is a big operation with a lot of people. Unless you get the spot as the leader, you are unlikely to make a difference that is worth your presence. The longer a piece of string, the harder it is to untangle all the knots. And I am sure someone will be around to suggest the Quincy and the Vanguard work closely together, with yourself as the envoy"
Ulv wasn't sure where this guy was going anymore. He was talking to himself and she was just stood on the said with an 'ok' look on her face as he seemed to get really hyped about something he totally wasn't sharing. Some plan or whatnot that had derailed from his original conundrum of if he wanted to help the Quincy or the Vanguard. Her words had sparked him to go off on a complete tangent, and leave Ulv behind. Which was fine, she'd just leave him to his thought and go running elsewhere. There was always a need to run, after all.
"Mmm, just be mindful of the many facates of strength. The Weak are not always powerless, and the Strong are not always powerful. Don't be caught up in chasing an idea, that you miss what is in front of you, and what your mind tells your body. But you look smart, so I am sure you'll figure it out" She then gave him a cherry wave, and headed off into the Russian Tundra, to find somewhere that wasn't currently occupied by strange men. Training was a thing to be done alone, after all.
