Title: Treading Icy Waters
Warnings: Some language, a bit of angst, a taste of violence, plenty of spoilers, and lots of unnecessary pain
Timeline: This story follows the manga's timeline, disregarding the Bounto Arc completely. It begins directly before the Hueco Mundo arc. And now it's divergent, seeing as I'm taking so long to continue and all of the shinigami have run off to Hueco Mundo without my permission.
Disclaimer: I do not own Hitsugaya or Bleach or anything else that I do not own.
Summary: The board has been laid out. The pieces have been set and moved. The pawns are scattered across the floor, and Ichimaru’s fingers are wrapped around a stark white bishop. “That’s another check, little taichou.” The game has only begun.
