If Hitsugaya gave Ichigo his powers…
Inspired by this list!
Yeah I can’t do digital art and I don’t have a scanner, but I hope this will do!
3. The adorable introduction scene would be - less adorable.
There’s the great moment when Rukia explains that her name isn’t “shinigami” but rather “Kuchiki Rukia.” That moment would go slightly differently with Hitsugaya.
4. Hitsugaya’s loss of powers would be linked to his guilt over, um, his grandmother’s death?
I don’t believe child Hitsugaya’s nightly power emissions actually killed his grandmother in canon Bleach - just made her really chilly. But Hitsugaya needs some sort of massive guilt so that the hogyoku will helpfully remove all of his powers - as happened to Rukia because of her guilt over Kaien’s death. So I guess we’d need Hitsugaya to have actually killed his grandmother by freezing her every night. So then he’d have the necessary guilt to give Ichigo all of his powers.
5. Hitsugaya wouldn’t sleep in Ichigo’s closet.
No. He’d sit all night on the roof. Up until the point that he realized that humans can’t actually stare moodily into the distance all night and woke up confused on the ground.
10. Isshin’s whereabouts would be dramatically and prematurely discovered.
Because no way Isshin could keep himself out of the house every single time Hitsugaya was there…especially if Hitsugaya was sort of living in (or on) Ichigo’s house.
Again, inspired by Bleachlists!
