    Default [BleachITP] Episode 8: Judgement of the Judge

    Kambei Shimada's thoughts were a mess, and though his body moved around, scouting the area for injuries, and he operated at his best, his spirit was not in it.

    His spirit stood inside his soul, facing Mercy, Justice and a third figure, a blindingly white figure. Nameless.

    "You have failed me." He mumbled. "And I have failed you. Mercy mislead me, and Justice did not help. And I let you."

    Kambei's face slid into his hands. "I...I cannot do this any longer. I cannot walk around carrying two different, almost opposing beliefs on my belt. I would rather die."

    Nameless's glow faded a tiny amount, and Mercy and Justice suddenly seemed to become a little less solid.

    "Kambei." Nameless said in a strange, echoing voice. "You did what you thought best. And it wasn't. However, your last actions, the actions that led to you placing yourself under Satoshi, those actions were just and showed yourself mercy. Your course for wisdom is just beginning."

    "But you represent ideals." Kambei moaned. "Ideals I cannot live up to, yet you make me."

    "Ideals are our better selves." Nameless intoned. Again, it's glow faded and Mercy and Justice became even more transparent.

    "Only through devotion to that higher cause can you attain your true power, Kambei. Yes, you achieved bankai nearly 150 years ago. That means nothing. Your bankai is flawed. Your zanpakutou is flawed. But now you can fix it."

    Kambei's head snapped up, and suddenly he was gone from his mindscape. In front of him stood Satoshi. Everything was black.

    "Sir." Kambei said with great respect. "Did you hear what my zanpakutou said?"

    Satoshi looks around, slight alarm showing.

    He's still in shikai, but this place is...different.

    "I did. And honestly, no offense, this whole thing is freaking me the Hell out. What's going on?"

    Kambei smiles at him. "I'm not sure, sir. I think this is a spot between our mindscapes. I'm not even sure how we're communicating like this. I guess my soul is just so broken that it reached out and touched the closest thing...you."

    He twists his hands together. "I've made a lot of mistakes. My zanpakutou took control of me and I acted before thinking, which could have killed a lot of people. I don't think I'm worthy of being captain, and I'm scared of what damage my swords could do if I become captain. What do you think?"

    Satoshi sighed.

    "I think that first and foremost, you should rest once we're out of here. You look like you need it. Second, I recommend spending a fair amount of time here with your sword. Conflict between shinigami and zanpaktou never results in anything but pain. Talk to it, them. Keep working this out. But make sure that, above all, you are in control. Instead of swinging back and forth between extremes of Justice and Mercy, find the middle ground, the proper balance...and stay there. Work to keep yourself balanced like that. Consult them for ideas, but always take a step back and consider things on your own, as well. They're part of you, but you are, ultimately, the "boss", as it were."

    Kambei nods slowly. He shimmers, and suddenly four beings stand in front of Satoshi. Kambei, Mercy, Justice, and a glowing figure that Satoshi assumes is The Nameless.

    All four are shimmering, transparent.

    Kambei looks pleadingly at Satoshi. "Look at this. This is my soul. Shattered into four. I can't even be the boss because I don't have that power. Shattering my swords was only a temporary solution."

    Satoshi looked evenly at him.

    "Then fix them. More than that, make your choice. Multiple voices, arguing with each other? Or one unified voice, a balance of the others? If I'm right, that one"Satoshi points at the third transparent figure"is the merging of the other two. The balance, if you will. If you're tired of the back and forth between Justice and Mercy...choose the balance. Fix your swords."

    Kambei smiles, and the smile is a strange, eccentric combination of incredible happiness and deep determination.

    "YES. SIR!" The entire area explodes. Satoshi is catapulted out of the Betweenscape, and appears next to Kambei in the real world.

    ((Where should we be?))

    ((Um....Well....Thing is, if this happened right after the Cuarta left...we're very much not in the same place. Unless, I suppose, you could say this took place "between the ticks of a second". Mindscapes are funny like that.))

    ((Right))

    Kambei stands anew in Soul Society. He no longer has two swords. He has one, and it is in the exact shape of The Nameless. He smiles.

    "Spread your wings, Devotion." Shikai.

    Two great white wings extend from Kambei's back, and he floats into the air. He smiles.

    "Mercy and Justice have been unified. What was two is now one. What was Nameless is now named."

    Kambei flys away.
