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:
As he exited the portal from hell, Aizen took a moment to look around. As planned, he'd ended up where he'd intended to be. China, an excellent location to begin launching his attack from. After a week or so of investigation he learned that K-world was now in control of this region of the earth, and he grew to know what capabilities they had, and of their home world. It was a clear affront to his own machinations, and for that reason he decided that they would have to go. Eventually he decided that it was time to show himself. He made his way to the K-world capital, then revealed himself. Floating directly above the city he used kido to project his voice, a simple matter for someone with his proficiency in the art.
"Your time on Earth is over. Remove yourselves, or suffer retribution."
This simple phrase projected itself for thousands of miles, seemingly welcoming all challengers. In the time he'd been on earth he'd learned all he needed to know about K-World, and felt confident in his assault. At the same time, he didn't want anything unexpected to happen, so he utilized his kido once more. With a kurohitsugi the likes of which had never been seen, he sealed off the thousands of miles that his voice had been projected to. At this point, only those who had initially heard the threat would be able to respond to it.
He'd learned that there were a few monstrously powerful individual hiding themselves away within the territory of K-World, yet he was unconcerned. Whether they intended to show themselves or not, this marked the end of K-Worlds control over this region of the Earth.
As he awaited any challenger, Aizen displayed his own power. The space around him warped, and any normal individuals who came near him were immediately taken out of commission. This was no game. On this very day, any K-World forces in China would meet immediate defeat, that he was certain of. If his calculations were correct, which they always were, any who intended to oppose him would meet a quick demise.
With a smirk on his face, Aizen stood in mid-air, enticing any who would be foolhardy enough to oppose him to launch their attacks. He made no move to begin the destruction himself, for he intended to cast all of the blame upon those who would dare oppose him.
With the challenge sent, the defenses mounted, and the attack begun, Aizen awaited the few who would be bound to oppose him. Perhaps they would be able to gather information related to him in order to oppose his rule. That information, however, would be several hundred years old, and completely irrelevant. There was a reason he launched his attack with such confidence, and that reason was simply this. There was not a single individual capable of stopping him. In fact, he held complete confidence in the fact that he would remove any defender instantly.
It was nice, to meet with Ci at her house in China. Even after losing her Dantian and becoming part of the other side of the "Rivers And Lakes" as it was called, Ulv was still friends with Ci. What the two had done for each other would never be forgotten. So they were having tea. But then someone came in and told her that her time on earth was over. "Wait? I've only just got here. Plus I...wait, that's not Ibiki" Ulv frowned, looking back to Ci before heading out. The sky was then covered in a massive Kido, and a surprising dude appeared.
"Sosuke? Well, that is a shock" Ulv commented, feeling him release his reiatsu, and so responding in kind. Ulv's reiatsu beat back Aizen's power with it's superior scale, and wrapped around the people of the city, protecting them from any negative effect. Ulv's Resolve Flame had to be specifically commanded to crush someone in order to do them harm. Otherwise, the worst it felt was a tight coat. And with that done, she hurried up to Aizen himself, standing some ten foot from with with an interested look on her face.
"Hey Sosuke. I know you were always a big person but, is this the best way to say hello?" Ulv asked him. Her appearance would be quite the blow to his pride, since there was a woman he knew absolutely nothing about, that was spiritually more powerful than he could muster at his highest extent. While talking, she used her Hearts Of Fire to mentally tap Inami and Demonica. Probably neither of them cared about K-World or Aizen, but Demonica did like a good fight....
Hmm, now I wonder what might have done that…? The hooded figure thought to himself, blinking at the feeling of… something entering his mind. …Doctor? The feeling was different from normal; there was something pulsating, pounding in his head. Something… unusual.
The black-cloaked individual moved through K-World's Laboratories, Earth Division. Relatively close by was the defense division; after all, most of what this man worked on had something to do with protecting or attacking a large organization. …Remove ourselves, or face retribution… The man thought to himself, watching the monitors as the initial response team was wiped out. …You truly want to face a war power by yourself that badly…? What kind of arrogance allows o-- At that moment, his hand gripped at his chest. His body jerked wildly, his hood falling back to reveal his matted silver hair. After a moment, the twitching stopped… and his hand reached for the pocket of his cloak.
A pair of glasses fit snugly over the bridge of his nose as he analyzed the situation. And here I am making my own plans… Not like I can just ignore this. Still, why would someone like that… attack somewhere like here? It doesn't make any sense. The Doctor cracked his neck, trying to get a bit more used to the body he was currently inhabiting. Does he not know about the world-wide conflict…? Does he see K-World as weak and without allies, and therefore a valid target? Is he going to try being aggressive at first, and then allying with us 'once he's proven how weak we are'?
The invader seemed to simply be… standing there. He protected his own territory, but he did not move forward. One of the man's hands reached for the control panel, his mind racing and looping through various possibilities. They all stemmed back to the same root; arrogance. The Doctor did not have any particular issues with confidence or arrogance, but it had to be tempered, however one could make it. Even if that meant yielding for hundreds of years, gathering more and more resources against that which you intended to defeat…
"Your orders are thus; do not attack until he has directly engaged a commanding officer. Focus primarily on evacuation." The soft voice spoke across the sealed-off area of China, the biogenetic communications system he utilized quickly and effectively relaying the message. Certainly the citizens of K-World were afraid and upset. But… at the same time, this was a part of the organization's path. They wished to recreate the world into something better, something with a true God-king. …And via the contract forged with my Father, I'm obligated to help them see it through… Though that isn't to say I have not received some benefit from it, as well. The Serpentine man thought to himself, taking his clone's body outside.
The sky was dark, the massive black box clearly displayed all around them. Do I want to assault his confidence…? Jab at him with memories of his prior failures? Try to make him doubt himself? I suppose that I could always attempt raw force, but ultimately that would be pointless. Is he willing to let anyone else influence him at all, I wonder? Hmm.. For now, I believe the best course of action would be…
Within the Selve's eyes, two black triangles appeared. Creating an almost hourglass-shaped object, he gazed directly at the man. …Aizen Sosuke. Plenty of information available on you… an attempt to overthrow the world typically displays one's entire hand. Typically requires you to expend all of your resources.. And yet, you had intelligence enough that I couldn't help myself. I had to know. What made you think you could do it? What forces did you come up with? How did you know they would be enough? And ultimately, the most important question of all….
Why did you fail?
With his extraordinary eyes, the Doctor could clearly make out the smirk present on the man's face. …Perhaps… that last question's a bit easier to answer than I'm entirely comfortable with. One hand remained in the pocket of his robes, the Selve beginning to float up into the air. His eyes were wide open as he got closer and closer to Aizen… stopping just outside of that field he was using to keep weaker individuals away. As if he could see the energy itself, where it had reached.
"Your analysis of K-World… how extensive was it? Tell me… did you see what happened the last time this organization was…"
The Doctor's words came to a stop, along with his body. …She's shouting over me. He reflected briefly on this fact, looking at his one-time patient. …I suppose I could… no, that would likely be the incorrect action… One of his hands reached up, shrugging. I suppose for now I could simply observe. After all… with what she's able to do, I'd be willing to bet he'll have to show a decent part of his hand as well… The Selve's hand drew out of his pocket, off of the scroll he had been touching. While Aizen may have sealed off this area well… it seemed unlikely that he would have created a specific barrier to deal with the Doctor himself. That would have been the most intelligent thing; but the ways he could come across such information, or how they worked, were… limited. ..The most important question, however… and the one I need answered the soonest…
His eyes wandered back over to Ulv. She would make a perfect distraction; if Aizen were driven into a corner, perhaps it would make him show why he was so confident. And once his hand was further revealed… We can go from there… Sorry, Kokuryuteshi… I'm not going to focus primarily on your defense… but I'll not just stand by as you perish, either.

In truth, it had seemed that the Red Planet had perhaps misjudged the state of this world at first when they had sent Valentine. For a time there had been such peace, it hardly seemed as though his presence was even necessary to understand the land of his birth. But now all manner of things seemed to be happening in such a rapid succession as to make his presence wholly worthwhile. The war had been one thing, certainly, and the fallout from his battle with Inami had been troublesome. But when his little birds in China told him of a threat he had read much about, naturally he could only do one thing.
He practically ran right to Beijing.
Such a grandiose barrier as he was faced with upon arrival was, of course, something Valentine took a moment to study. He knew of kido in the abstract, but one of this caliber was certainly worth looking upon for a moment. Perhaps tragically, of course, he could not properly touch it to understand the full extent of its functionality. Still, what little he could glean was of course sent off to the Drones for full intensive study. He poked, prodded, introduced all manner of other materials in the area to it, and when he was finally content with this, he simply walked through unimpeded, continuing toward the scene that his airborne spies had shown to him.
Of course, upon arrival he found quite a scene. Metaphorically, anyway. His birds had, of course, told him of these changes well before he set foot on the scene. Kabuto Hebi and Ulv Auber, here alongside Sosuke Aizen, ready for any confrontation. In truth, he was rather glad to see miss Auber. Not so much for any particular familiarity with her, or fondness for her, but rather simply because he knew from his intelligence that she more than made up for the physical aspect of combat that he was outside. It was refreshing, though at the same time, her propensity for operating on her own terms was...concerning, if nothing else.
Still, he was here now, and he gave his usual cordial smile to all parties as he stepped foot on the scene. He waved cheerily, his eyes closed, and his silver hair blew faintly in the wind. A sight he, in the back of his mind, faintly wondered if Aizen might have some reaction to. Placing a hand in his pocket, he then addressed everyone currently assembled, his tone of voice seeming far from as serious as might be expected.
“Oho~ Sosuke Aizen, here in the flesh. Well, flesh in an abstract sense, I suppose. I suspect you are far from having any 'flesh' in the truest way. I was under the impression you had died long ago. All of the history books say as much, anyway. But, I must admit the spiritual realms do work in mysterious ways. Perhaps it's not so strange to see you here after all.”
Naturally, Valentine had already long since raised all of his defenses to the absolute maximum. He currently had no offensive ability whatsoever, but he suspected that this would change quite soon. This was more a precaution than anything else, and one he imagined would be extremely important in a few moments.
“I would introduce myself, but of course, I have read that your intellect was one quite insurmountable to most. I am sure I need not introduce myself and my origins to you.”
The smile on Valentine's face didn't change, but the attitude behind it seemed almost more malicious now than it had been before. He of course knew fully that he had no record but for the most barebones, that which came from his position in the Vanguard. He scrubbed the countless webs of information quite regularly, and knew that even now the truth of his identity had stayed firmly within the Chairmen of the Vanguard. He knew that he had no other known history, and that there was not a single bit of information on who he was other than simply his name. To addend his origins to what he expected of Aizen... Well, Mars had never thought much of these spiritual vermin bringing their discord to the real world, now had they?
