Bleach - Farewell Byakuya Kuchiki - by keelerleah Bleach - Farewell Byakuya Kuchiki - by keelerleah
Edit: Thanks so much for all your lovely comments. You've all helped to strengthen my hope that something more will happen and that he may be alight in the end. But I guess all we can do now is wait and see. :)

Why can't I stop crying?! I finished this only hours before I read chapter 502 yesterday and I'm glad I did, otherwise I probably wouldn't have even been able to finish it. *sobs*

*warning chapter 502 spoilers*

After reading the previous chapter (And after a couple days to calm down) the urge to draw him again hit me hard. I didn't want a picture showing his death (as I've already seen some artists do) but instead I wanted something peaceful and calming. No blood, no pain, no swords, not even his uniform. I just wanted something to bring about happy memories rather then the bad. I still have hope though that something will happen and that he will be saved in the end (where is Orihime when you need her?) but I admit my hopes were dimmed a bit after reading 502.

I'm almost ashamed at how much his his supposed death has affected me. I am again amazed at how much a made up fictional character has affected my life, and seeing his death before I went to bed yesterday (and gosh it was horrible) has me more distraught then I would have ever imagined. I fell asleep crying and I've barely been able to hold back the tears today (in fact right now I have tears running down my face). But I will not let my obsession and love for him die as well, but gosh I can't help but think why him out of all the characters.... why him... :iconsobplz:

Such moving artwork!!! I can see the sorrow on his face affected by your sadness. So he died??!?! That's crazy, so many people like him! I still need to read the series. I'm really sorry to hear about his death, that sucks :( But the best thing about fanfiction is you can change what happens and write your own story heheh! That's what I did when I didn't like what happened in the Dragonlance books.

Ah, actually he didn't die (I should update my artist comments). The last we saw of him, he was being healed. Then the story shifted and focused on different characters. So we have yet to find out what's going to happen with him.
