New Capital CityThat's the name of the city I live in, one of the largest cities in the country. The name of the country's rather uncertain, as it changes from time to time, but this city's name has remained the same. What was this country's name way before? Nobody knows.The world changed one hundred years ago, when the skies turned red and the world was turned asunder. Some called it the end of days. Some called it Ragnarok, but that was really the same as the first. And then some came to call it 'The Crisis.' It was a term that grew in popularity over the years, as humanity picked up the pieces and tried to return to normality, because there would be times when the skies would turn red and dangers would face the planet.None of these crisis’s were as bad as the first, which is still held as a day of importance as 'The Crisis.' History of the world before vanished, with some wondering if there was even a world before The Crisis, but artifacts Since then, humanity has changed. Since The Crisis, humanity seems to have responded to the threat. Humans started to be born with... powers. Strange abilities that could defy what science knew. At first they were feared and reviled, but when the next crisis hit, they defended mankind.>1/2
>>36944549Since then, they've been an everyday factor of life. By this time, one person in ten has powers. There's a large variety of names to classify them such as 'metahumans' or 'mutants' but the most common classification is 'Heroes' and 'Villains.' 'Heroes' are those who work to protect society and follow the codes that have been laid down since the first Heroes stood up to defend mankind. There's actually a lot of rules now, so actually it's hard to be one. Many people also don't have powers that can necessarily be aplied, or lack the imagination to apply then, so they end up living ordinary lives.And then there are 'Villains' who are those who use their powers selfishly for their own gain, with their classifications going up depending both on their power capabilities and also their behavior. More than a few Villians are washed out Hero applicants, sadly. And the job of a Hero is to firstly stop a Crisis and also to stop Villains.Staring down at the school applications, dismissing a large portion. And for every one human with power, there's nine who don't. But it's never the case that someone with powers has a child who doesn't.Until Me.>NAME:>Gender: Male>Powers: NONE>drive/desire: >Intensity of drive/Desire: 1-10>Note: The character's drive or desire is what drives them, the more intense it is, the more it fuels them, but it also means the more it encompasses the protagonist's way of life.

I write down on the applications, rather the applications that are ones I can apply to, my name. Jack John. Son of the D-Class Hero 'Glasses John.' There's really no point in applying to schools that have a Hero-training focus, mainly because those who have no powers are almost second-class citizens. The schools will take you, but they generally look the other way when you're driven out by peer pressure. Besides, its not like I have much interest in being a Hero. I've grown up with my father's disappointment and distance, and my mother's pity. I've watched childhood friends fade away when social stigma of those who have, and don't have powers really dig in. What's the point of wanting to be a Hero, anyway? You get hurt, you have to follow all these rules. The hell with all of it! I WANT A GIRLFIEND! Why the hell are people with powers so popular, huh? Ugh, you popular bastards, I hate you! Ignoring all that attention and focusing on your future as heroes. Who needs you?! Yes, my goal is to find a girlfriend! A girl who is kind, sweet and loving. Who sees me for me. Few people know it, but I'm actually the one who puts out the somewhat popular 'girls who would be best to date' listings. Well, less that I put them out than I left them somewhere and the idea's popularity spread. I put a lot of effort into that too! I was trying to decide who would be the best girlfriend!But all it seems like I got out of it was my grades suffering more and everyone thinking I'm some weirdo. Letting out a sigh, I let my head rest on my desk as I wait for the day to end, thinking about who'd be the best girlfriend.Lost in thoughts, I'm jerked back to alertness as a stack of papers smacks me on the head hard. Rubbing at my aching skull, I look up at the figure glaring down at me from behind her glasses. >1/2
>>36945480Girlfriend Ranking #42- Kyouko Murasaki. A plain girl who focuses on her job as a class representative. Has powers, particularly something involving eyesight, which is why she wears such large and obscuring glasses.“Jack, today's your turn to clean up the classes on this floor.”My muddled thoughts click into clarity. “Wait, but didn't I do that yesterday? Today's Explosive Eddie's turn!”She smiles sweetly, like a devil about to strike. “That's an improper way of calling your classmate, Jack. And yes, he was, but he's got an authorized excuse because of his academy's interviews. As such, as the most morally lacking and worst ranked in the class, the homeroom teacher and I figured you would be best to try to impose some discipline on you.”I scowl at her retreating form. And by that, what them mean is that as I was focused on my report, I'd gotten bad reputations of being creepy. It wasn't my fault that its hard to overheard conversations and that put me into certain circumstances that could be taken different ways! And I'm sorry that I don't really care for school, either. Not like I've really got any friends, anyway.Still, this is bullshit, and not the first time either. I had plans this evening to fix up my report some and decide on who was the best girlfriend at this school. This is why she's number forty-two on the list. Maybe if I hurry I can get away before she stops me? [Number Mode: 5]>What is number mode?

Yeah, no. Your goal is to get a girlfriend, and part of that is that you won't accept anything but your own personal Number One. And so, scooping up your bag you're outta there. Jumping over the desk and rolling out he door, you toss up some of your pocket sand as it freezes midair. Yeah, not this time Class Rep. Running down the hall, you hear a loud frustrated voice behind you as you round a corner to the stairs, hearing footsteps rapidly behind you. There's the stairwell down the hall and several classrooms you could hide out in or try to make it out the window from. But basiucally if she can look at you at a close enough range, she can freeze you in time. And after a number of times, it gets really, really old.So, there's stairs. There's the well mannered Professor A's office. He might be in there though, but you're pretty sure there's an easy escape path out his window to freedom. There's also the science room, where science labs are done, it has a window and places to hide. There's also a broom closet.NUMBER MODE 4!

I'd rather risk Professor A's wrath as I rush to open and close his office behind, locking it and bracing it with my back. Calming my breath, I try to listen as I hear her footsteps getting closer. Closer and Closer. But the door is shut and locked. Oh, god the door is shut and locked. The door is the ultimate guard against the raptors... if one remembers to lock it.The door pounds against my back as I feel the handle rattle as she tries to get to me. But I'm safe here. Raptors can only open unlocked doors. “I'm getting the office keys and then your ass is grass!”Clever girl.As I hear her footsteps fade away, I let out a sigh of relief and turn around. Sitting there in his chair is Professor A. His hair is well styled and his outfit is impeccable. He's the most liked teacher by the girls in this school. Apparently he might've had potentially some history as a villain, but he spends his day teaching liberal arts, so perhaps he still is one. Raising an eyebrow that has no hair out of line, he stares me down with a smug little smile.“I see that you have arrived just like I predicted.”He also seems to know everything that happens at this school and is prepared for it. That or he's the greatest bullshitter that I've ever seen. Either way, he doesn't seem inclined to report me right now.“I know why you're here. The exit is right there, but is it wise for you to take it? Perhaps you've played right into my hands, maybe this will just be letting you snare the trap I've prepared for you to run into.”I'm looked down upon by him, even in his reclined position. I've got a moment to thing. Maybe he's just messing with me? The Class Rep will be at least three minutes. But what if this is their plan and she;s waiting outside for me? What if the's waiting out at the escape route's exit, too? This is why Professor A's class is the worst! He's got the girls' attention and is always three steps ahead!>1/2

You have a power, and therefore you have prestige, influence, and approval based solely upon that, with more important things such as morality, intelligence, experience, or even basic competence deemed irrelevant in the face of it. You, and every one of my peers with powers, shall always be given an advantage. Yet it was Albert Einstein, one of the greatest minds ever, who said, 'If you judge a fish on its ability to climb it shall go through life believing it is stupid.' I am given lesser grades, lesser living conditions, and am a disgrace to my parents simply because I don't have powers. I am cast out from various social cliques and considered a pariah, I have no friends, because nobody wants to be friends with the 'Normie'. And that you think that just not having powers is something that needs discipline shows that you not only are aware of this dissociation between those with powers and those without, but you approve of it. You have none of my respect, and the only authority you have is that which comes at the end of a beating. So unless you're ready to beat some kid just for not taking your arbitrary punishment, get Eddie to do it."fuck dialup

Alright, so there's only one thing to do. Take the biggest risk, for the smuggest reward. As I wish Professor A a good night, I unlock the door and walk out, closing it behind me, as I walk down the hallway and take the long way out of the School. Taking my time as I go down the steps, I leisurely head out the front doors as I hear an angry scream come from somewhere back in the school. Leaving the school gates, I smile as I make my way home. Turning on my phone, I find that there's a message from my mother that I should pick up some milk. The other text that pops up is a warning that there's a villain on the loose, so people without powers should be careful, especially after night. The evening light shining down gives everything a golden hue to it as I consider my options. There should be a group of girls from my school who like to hang out around the shops downtown, so I could do some more research and pick up some milk. If I cut through the nearby park, there should be a few girls who loiter by its lake for about an hour after school, and there's a convenience store on the other side on the way to my house.Then again, I could just head on home and grab the milk on the way. Not like I've got anyone to hang out with. Letting out a sigh, I hear some of the guys walking by talking amongst themselves. Apparently there's a cave in the restricted section of the park that has a spirit that will grant any one wish if you make it to the end. Buuuut... there's been no-one who's made it out alive.>[ ]Go to the shopping area, do some research>[ ]Scout out the park for my research>[ ]Head on home, compile that report>[ ]The cave

A wish, huh? Yeah, I could really use a wish, honestly. I could wish for the ultimate girlfriend. The absolute best, most fitting girlfriend for me! And if I die? Well, honestly, I'm not sure that too many people will miss me. I don't have a lot to live for either.So, yeah. It'd be something worth risking my life for. Heading through the park, I pass the bench overlooking the lake and girls down there. A shabby looking homeless guy lays out on the bench, his once red coat and blue pants tattered and torn, his brown hair messy and filthy, with a beard covering what might've been a youthful face.I pass them by, including the me who would have stopped there. I'll get my wish or die trying.Passing by the restricted area tape, I carefully make my way through the deserted area of the forest and find myself face to face with the entrance to a cave. The opening is warded and there's tons of seals over the entry for evil spirits, but none bother me as I cross the threshold. Instantly, there's a tenseness in the air, like I'm being observed. Looking back at there the door was behind me, there's nothing there.All that's left is a path and a sign. The text is fading, but legible. “There is nothing to return to. Reprare your resolve and come to terms with the regrets you will leave behind.”Walking forward, there's three paths. As I glance back, the wall is inches behind me. Whatever choice I make, it is for good. The left path is sloping downwards and is rather wide open with smooth stone. The middle path is level, but covered in cobwebs and there's a slight hint of wind from it. The right path is titled upwards and has its floors and walls covering in irregularly placed bricks..As I make my choice, I feel a presence settle behind me, and I have the feeling that I must absolutely not look back and get moving.

As I feel the thing behind me start to close in, I move. Running forward as fast as I can, I figure it's best to take the middle path. As I run down the path, I find my vision being obscured by old numerous cobwebs as I feel the wind increase in intensity near my face, I drop to the ground as a clear blade passes through where my head was as I roll forward, dodging more and more blades extending to stab or otherwise try to kill me.Scratching at the ground to find leverage, I scramble to my feet and run forward. Running down the clear path, I find myself in a more well lit room as the door slams shut behind me. I hear something claw at it and howl. Looking around the room, I see it is well lit by torches and there resides a large table. On the other side of the table is an old man, who wears a crown. His hair is long and his eyes closed. Behind him is an open door.On the large table is the largest chessboard you've ever seen. Countless pawns, rooks queens and bishops are placed on a gridded field that looks like the field between two castles, each peace intricately carved to look like a person to the smallest detail. The chair that he is sitting n is styled to look like a king piece, as is the chair on your side.The man's voice is raspy as his tired, bitter voice. He looks like a man who has seen nothing but warfare his entire life. He weakly gestures towards the seat.“The only way past me... is to win.”>Sit down to play>refuse to play>Walk past the old man and out the door

I step forward and sit down in the King's seat as the old King's eyes peer over at me from across the board. He interlocks his fingers and rests his bearded chin on them as he stares contemplatively at me.I Look over at the board and the field to see that I am playing white, and he is playing black. Looking closely I can see every individual figure is sculpted to look like a person under my command. There's an army of figures out there, on each side. With how many pieces there are, there will be a lot of losses on both sides and it will be a tedious, boring game.And I have the opening move. In chess, white is always the side that initiates the war. He's the enemy, waiting for me to make my first move.>Make your first move>Don't make a move.>surrender

Sitting down, I look over the board. I consider every point before I close my eyes and focus un why I am playing this. For a wish. For my wish. There's nothing I won't do for it!Moving my first piece, the kind looks resigned as he moves his. Many turns advance and it seems like I've gotten a few piece advantage over the king who I'm playing, but both of us have lost a fair amount of pieces.Its my my turn now.>make a move>surrender

He's losing. We both can see it. I stare down at him as he contemplates his moves, but we both don't have too many options left. “Sir, I ask that you surrender and let me win. This game is futile, surely we can both see it?”The old man looks down at the board and considers his moves. He looks at his king, and considers it.He looks up at me and looks for something, but whatever it is, he cannot find. “I cannot surrender to someone like you. Make your move.”>last leg of the game.

My brow knits as I focus on the most efficient way to win. I'm going to win that wish and get my girlfriend. I've put my life on the line for my desire. Surrounding his king as the turns pass, I eventually put him into checkmate.The old man after a few minutes acknowledges this by standing up and tipping over his chair as the table begins to descend. He stands there, across from me and looks at me with what could only be called pity. Shaking his head, he begins to turn to dust, until all that's left is a crown, until it, too is gone.I step forward and enter the next room as the door shuts behind me. The room is pitch black until light begins to appear. A heavily armored form, chained to a throne sits across from me. The throne is large and menacing, blackened chains hanging from each of its sharp corners, tied tightly around each part of the armored figure.It says nothing, but a voice whispers in my ear. If I can reach the throne, I can have my wish.No more than ten paces and I can have my wish!>Number Mode >Stay where I am>Continue Forward.

I pause as I consider this. There's something here, there's a catch. The halls were deadly, the old man was beatable, so why have no person had their wish granted. The room is absolutely silent before the figure shifts slightly, as the chains react and bind it.Its head faces you as a booming voice, like swords clashing, with the presence of a giant, emerge from it. “If you seek your wish, you must survive the journey to me. To date, none have survived.”It draws silent and I cannot think it will speak further at this point.I can either stay here for the rest of my life or die trying to grant my wish. There's really no choice here. I step forward...>NUMBER MODE >roll me 1d20>approach at a run>approach at a slow pace>approach at normal pace

I step forward normally. Step by step I slowly begin to feel myself getting a bit weaker. But I'm burning with desire. The air gets heavier. My legs get weaker. Breathing gets harder. My vision swims like I've run a marathon. The enthroned figure says nothing. Does nothing. It simply is. An impartial judge. I have to step forward. As I make my way over the halfway point, I feel the strength in my leg give out. Collapsing to one knee, I fight to keep myself up.>Number Mode 4 (remember your 1d20!)>Try to walk the rest of the way.>Claw and drag self to the end.>stop, you cannot continue further

I put the last of my strength and stand back up. A step forward, inch by inch. Every step takes more from me. Can what I'm doing be called steps? Each motion closer and my body weakens. Sight is left in my right eyes. Hearing in the left.Feeling in my arms. Then my legs. With my vision wavering, I step again as I feel myself wall forward, my hand just barely out of the reach of the leg of the armored figure. Everything goes dark and I hear a voice. I have no body, but I can tell this voice is coming from behind 'me.'The female voice is young and cheerful. “Well, you made it further than anyone else. You've broken the record! I almost thought you could do it!”I feel a soft hand on what should be my arm. “But I guess that's it. You really wanted a girlfriend, huh? Sorry about the lot you got in life. I'll make sure that the desk jockeys make it up to you in your next life. I next you will surely be able to do it. So, let go of your regrets and let's get you moved on.”>Accept your Death>Refuse to Accept it
>>36950289>Refuse to Accept it
Death can't be the girlfriend, she loves everybody
>>36950289>>Refuse to Accept it
>>36950289>>Refuse to Accept it"SCREW THAT, I WANT A GIRLFIREND!"
I refuse to accept it!My body refuses to move. The darkness that has taken me continues its proliferation. The voice lets go of my arm as I see a girl in a green and black Dress. She wears a pair of green-rimmed glasses as a horn emerges from one half of her head. One of her hands is a soft pale white, while the other is a large, worn metallic black skeletal hand. She leans down, her face gentle. “I'm sorry, but this is it. You need to let go of those regrets and accept it. You died. If you want, I could probably work something out for you to work as a wraith, but you died. You didn't get your wish.”She reaches behind on her dress and pulls out a small lock-like thing with an Orange Strawberry design on it. “Don't be stubborn, just accept it. Either move on to your next life or take my deal.”I think on my life up to this point. My life's honestly... been pretty miserable. So many opportunities I never took. How much I slacked at school. So many opportunities I never had the change to take. My father's disappointment and distance. My mother's looks of pity and coddling, like I was some broken figure made of glass. Each and Every friend I lost and didn't fight to keep. And, to make it the absolute worst, I died without ever having a girlfriend, inches away from making my wish.If only I could move my body. If only I could move it with my will even as I died. Just for a minute more! Can I really just die like this?!>Number mode >Take the deal>Accept your death>Refuse to accept it all, especially your death

I was hoping it was Neil Gaiman's Death
So if this is Cosgroves fever dream of dead characters, ideas, and concepts, why no Riders yet?
If not for the earlier setting stuff I'd think Cos was setting up the Black Lantern Corps for GLQ

>all this poking at IchigoMy heart cant take it anymore Cos' I WANT TO BELIEVE
No“No?”I refuse. I refuse to die like this. I won't die, having done nothing and so full of regrets. Even if I'm going to die, then I'm not dying so pathetically! The girl's widen as she fades, a grin on her face. “So, this is your dying will, huh? Interesting.”I can see. I can feel. I can hear. My body is burning like its filled with fire as a molten strength courses through it. My mind is calm as my power pushes my body. I reach forward and grab the armored figure by the leg and then my other arm joins it. I grasp a chain and pull on it Then another. Each chain I let go of as I grab the next shatters. I grab its shoulders and put myself face to face.My breathing is fast, but I feel like I'm in complete control.“I win.”The head tilts as the figure seems like it's in shock. Eventually it nods. “You have won... WHAT IS YOUR WISH?”Red lines glow on the throne and on the armor you clutch to.I can wish for anything I want...My wish is... my wish is....!>NUMBER MODE: 4>[ ]A girlfriend!>[ ]Powers!>[ ]A pair of panties!

What type of girlfriend? Don't let him give you a trick question. Such as if you wish for a girlfriend he might bullshit you and give you only instead a girl who is a friend.

I must leave, but merry christmas to all of you and a happy new year.
>>36951103Eh, She seems to be around the #30s in the ranking.
>>36951103Hook up with Stella? I don't know how Peter would feel about that...how old is she anyways?
>>36951187Age is just a numberIf there's grass on the field play balletc,
Everything in my life has lead up to this moment!“I WISH FOR THE PERFECT GIRLFRIEND! Someone who will be by my side in this life and the next. The person who is most compatible with me and will never leave me! Grant me the wish my dying will would not let me pass on without saying!”The figure stares at me shock evident in its posture as it looks up, even with its eyes hidden in the armor's shadows. My burning stare doesn't waver as it struggles to contemplate my wish. And then gold light begins to shine as the armor of the figure begins to crack, light pouring out from each and every one. The cracks grow and spread until as a golden light engulfs me.Heh. Worth it.Waking up, I find myself in my bed. My body feels weak, as I can't seem to lift myself, the blanket too heavy for me to lift. I feel incredibly warm as I free an arm, I fold back the covers to find myself in my bed, with a form on top of me, sleeping. This is my room and this is my life.And on my chest... could it be?The figure stirs as pale gold hair moves as it sits up to straddle my waist. Unnaturally pale skin with pale gold eyes stares down at me disdainfully as the lithe form is revealed to me. Wearing a dark navy tracksuit top and navy bloomers, there's a look of confusion before the girl on my waist looks at her hands in shock.“F-flesh?!” Gripping me by the collar of my shirt she pulls me up as she stares at me, somehow looking both pleased and displeased by my presence. “W-w-w-w-what kind of moron are you? Look what you've reduced me to! The source of all evils in the world, sealed away when the world was supposed to come to an end has been reduced to some stuttering human girl to be your g-girlfriend! What do you have to say for yourself... d-darling?!”Wait.What.>Unprecedented Age Quest, Christmas Special Part 1 END>Have to sleep soon, but I'll be back tomorrow night for part II!>I'll take questions or comments for the next few
>>36951290Is Bleach Quest:Redux ever going to return?
>>36951290Hmmm, Around the 10s, maybe even within the top 10.We done good. As for questions, how have we done? Did you expected something like this?
>>36951290thanks for runningSo this is a new quest?
>>36951314I'm not 100% sure. Maybe, but if I do continue I'll probably distance myself mroe and mroe from canon bleach. Can't stand the current stuff anymore.>>36951325I planned adventures based on each path taken. There were several school misadventures that could have been done too. As for how you've done, I can't say because This ride isn't over yet.>>36951332Sortof, This is sorta the realm I made that incorporates aspects of my previous quests, while still being my own thing. Might only be fore specials, might be more often, but my current focus after this special is finishing PPQ
>>36951372>I'll probably distance myself more and more from canon bleach. Can't stand the current stuff anymore.I'd be PERFECTLY fine with thatThe way you were running it before was a ton of fun to participate in.The Soul forge idea I found really cool
>>36951372Who is number one in the girlfriend ranking?....Could we get more?
Saber Extra is best Saber
>>36951484Eh, I kind of like Joan of Arc better.
>>36951290What would have happened if we had picked panties?
>>36951372what kind of powers would we have gotten
>>36951552We would have gotten panties and probably be back to our old lives.
>>36951594we'd have the same end scenario but instead of girlfriend, we'd have angry sentient panties.
>>36951619....Not sure if want or not.
>>36951694depends on the panties?
>>36951467There was never a definite #1, it was left blank because he was cementing his list from the bottom up.>>36951534>>36951484Both are great.>>36951552>>36951594>>36951619Actually, it would have led to AtEotW still being turned into a girl, but you'd have her panties and all of her hate as she would pursue you for having reduced her to human form and for the newly found shame of having to give away her panties. The panties would also be a highly powerful and evil artifact, though.>>36951589A large variety to pick from
>>36951718So they'd be black and lacy Panties of Vile Darkness?
>>36951761Look, they would be the most comfortable, powerful and evil panties to ever exist. They also might be black and lacy and have tons of evil powers that must never be spoken of.NEVER,
>>36951791So we must never speak of the little tiny red bow on the front of them?
>>36951718What did the lowest number did he reach?>>36951791Does she still have the vile dark panties of evil?
>>36951851They're slightly different She has, amongst other other things, The Dark Navy Track Jacket of Eternal Torment, The Dark Navy Bloomers of Unspeakable Atrocities, the Black and Lacy Panties of The Ultimate (Evil) Girlfriend and Titillation . She also has the Black Ribbon of Supreme Annihilation, plus some other stuff.>>36951805Never.
>>36951905Will we get all the girls? or rather complete our listing?
>>36951905So, you're saying she needs to go shopping for some casual wear?We can make it a date!
>>36951290AHHHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAOH GOD WAKING UP TO THIS IT'S LIKE CHRISTMAS COME EARLY
I was so sure it would end in a loliget. Oh well.
we archiving or bumping these?
>>36951290I just realized something.Despite having no powers, we are INCREDIBLY intelligent, outsmarting both a villain whose power is all according to the keikaku and an ancient king whose sole purpose is to outsmart others in a test of sheer cunning. We have a sheer willpower to kick death right back (though we mighta already used that card) and a ton of angst.We're just one lottery ticket away from becoming batman.
now that we have achieved ours life's goal... What?
>>36954952Try not to be killed by our life goal?
>>36954952Well, that depends.Is this person a new girl? Is reality changed so that she's always been here, and everyone will know her? Has our life therefor been changed, for better or worse?Or is she just competely new, off the records and without any sort of history, just magically out of the blue? Does she have powers? Will her presence have any affect on our day-to-day lives?And what about her? Who is she? Who/what was she? Will she kill us, or will she make sweet, sweet love to us? Is she bound to our will, or merely filled with an infatuation for us? And if the latter, how deep does this infatuation run?
>>36955029Can we live with ourselves altering the free will of another creature to serve our desire for romance. Is adoration not truly earned and mutual between two fulfilling?Are there broader horrific and ethical concerns for what just happened?
>>36956008Fuck no. This thing probably deserves it. Anything with that much power needs to have some stipulation, ala the UNFATHOMABLE COSMIC POWER, itty bitty living space
>loser protagonist stumbles his way into the arms of Stuttering Saber>wishing her into existance was his life's goal>she totally loves him Baka>she is actually a super powered deity thingSounds like a lock and stock harem anime beginning; so YA we're probably alt universe Harry.
>>36956143No, this is the anime story Harry writes in private hoping he can use Daddy's money to travel to Japan and sell it.

I just want to hang out with Teacher Aizen. Who I hope is just an ordinary albeit super smug guy who does nothing but bullshit.
