The fall-out after the break-out
I've read some great fallout fics in this fandom but this one is so heartbreakingly beautiful. I think it was particularly wonderful because it focused less on the war side of the fallout and more on the emotional side which was so important for me to be able to really connect with the characters. The author takes the time to focus on every division in Soul Society and they do it wonderfully. Divisions three, five and nine were especially brilliant in their simplicity, and I think it was great that Division Eleven still managed to come across rough and insane =)Preview:Byakuya, on the nights his sister sleeps at home rather than at the division, sits outside of her room when she is asleep. He is gratified to know that now she actually
does sleep, rather than rest fitfully, never quite dropping off. When it rains, he has an extra blanket sent to her quarters and a cup of warm milk, and does not mention it in the morning.
