Thread: The Edge of Soul Society

    As the wind tore around Makoto, he was not aware of flying through the air, or even the impact. It took a few minutes, but when he opened his eyes, everything was just a bit hazy and his body hurt. His reiatsu was gone for now as he struggled to stay alive.

    He didn't say anything, what could he say? Makoto simply lay there for a moment as the shock wore off. After a few minutes, he climbed to his feet and looked over at Lodium and a strange looking Tyler. It seemed that there was now a third Lycan in the group.

    "Heh.... fun eh?"

    Makoto made his way towards Lodium and Tyler, crawling on the ground because he could not exactly walk after that beating he had just taken.

    Tyler's claws and fangs fully formed, the sight of blood gave him the jitters, he tried to look away. Instead he found himself giving the student a hand "Getting beat teaches you alot more" he said. He unstrapped a large gourd from his belt, opening it he spoke to the student "Drip this green stuff on your hand, lather it up, and cover your wounds with it". He had made his cup of tea and sipped happily "It's a special ointment that sterilizes, and helps heal flesh wounds, I recieved it from Bhavahara when we were students, your wounds aren't too deep, just apply it an you'll be ok". He was ready for the sight of blood to be gone, they would have noticed by now that Tyler was forcing himself to look away from Makoto.

    ((UFC TONIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!! THE CARD IS AMAZING, GO ANDERSON SILVA!!!!!!!!!))

    Makoto was a bit intrigued at how Tyler, now in his lycan state, was intentionally avoiding eye contact. His words were true though, more was learned in deafeat than gained in victory. Sitting back, Makoto did exactly as he was told. He lathered up the ointment and began to apply it to his wounds. At first, it burned, but after a moment, there was just a sizzling sound as the pain faded and the wounds seemed to stitch themselves back together.

    makoto was still exhausted, but he was not bleeding all over the place now. Standing up, he stretched for a minute, working out the stressed muscles in his body. The entire time, his face wore a bit of a grin. Amusai would have killed to be here and witnessing this. makoto was recieving training from a group of lycans, just like those out of human mythology.

    "So, whats next? While you guys are deciding, I am going to change my robes." He said with a large grin.

    He had learned plenty from this fight. Makoto thought it was awesome and inspiring at the same time to know that if he trained hard enough, he would be able to defend himself easily with sheerly reiatsu techniques. Entering his room, Makoto put the destroyed and bloody robes in the trash and dressed himself with clean ones. He grabbed some fruit from a bowl in his room and went back outside. Sitting down near Tyler and Lodium, he began bringing his naturally emitted reiatsu in close to his body. By now, he was able to quickly pull the miniscule amount of energy close to his skin.

    This time, he began pushing his normal reiatsu through and slowly, he covered himself in a golden blanket of energy. taking a deep breath, makoto began trying to pull this energy closer to his body, in essence, layering it over his reiatsu base that he had created. After a moment, he could no longer sustain the level of control he was doing and his reiatsu faded away.

    "So, whats up?" Makoto inquired as he waited to find out what trials he would face next.

    Tyler smiled, he was back to normal now. He sighed a bit after taking a sip of tea. He looked at Makoto "That depends on you Makoto" he answered about what was next. He sipped on his tea some more "What is up, eh, never was good with that one, it was after my time" he said. He sat his tea down on the small platter "I could really use a change of clothes" he said "That's what's up" he said with a slight bit of sarcasm in his voice, he chuckled a bit. He sniffed the air "Ah, my friends followed me here" he said quite suddenly. He looked over to Lodium "You may know them as well Lodium, may i invite them in?"

    ((sorry been really busy this weekend))

    Lodium sat within the chair, it was amusing to see tyler changing. Obviously blood had been the trigger and Tyler was slowly loosing control. Amused by the fight Lodium watched as Makoto got his ass handed to him.

    Watching the fight Lodium started clapping his hands.

    "Very good Maybe...."

    Lodium went quiet as makoto went to go change. As tyler requested some clean clothes Yurakai disappeared for a few moments. When the wind blew and tyler caught scent of a familiar group Lodium also caught the scent.

    Just before Lodium was about to answer Yurakai reappeared with clean shinigami robes for tyler. They were spares that Lodium had packed, and they was customised. They could adjust to sudden growths and sustain structure, just in case Tyler went fully lycan.

    "Ah yes Yurakai please allow tyler's guest in. They are now our guest"

    Without any words Yurakai handed tyler the clothes before disappearing once more to open the gates of the manor. Looking towards Makoto it seemed his rate of learning was coming along nicely.

    "well then as soon as your fully healed and mastered the reiatsu armour then we will discuss your next step."

    Turning to tyler Lodium had a amused look about him.

    "Please go great your friends and change, Il be in the rear courtyard. Might aswell get some training before the moon huh?"

    Standing up Lodium gave a short bow to tyler and one to makoto. Every one was equals here no ranks or division to interfere.

    "Makoto you know what you need to do, come get me when you've mastered the technique."

    Giving both of them a wave Lodium disappeared. Back within the rear courtyard Lodium sat back infront of his two remaining peices of steel. Time to work on super heating the metal instead of cutting it in two.

    Makoto nodded. He needed to learn this reiatsu technique. After what he had seen, after he learned this one, Makoto was going to continue working on it. He was running the data from the fight with Tyler through his mind while at the same time making a mental note of needing to take a trip to the 11th to practice his zanjutsu and increase his physical battle prowess. Sighing, he sat down and started his practice.

    Makoto once more, brought his reiatsu that was naturally emitted from his body close to his body. Pushing his reiatsu through, the golden glow increased quickly to cover a second layer of reiatsu over his body. This second layer was going to be the actual armor and his naturally emitted reiatsu, with just a small amount being used on top of that, was going to sustain the reiatsu armor. Makoto began to solidify the energy like he had done to the sword and to his reiatsu shield.

    After a few moments, Makoto was sitting with a strange, smooth, armor type reiatsu covering him. He began manipulating the places that he needed to be able to move so that he could be able to move at all. As of right now, he was simply frozen in place by his own technique.

    The energy began to fade away as Makoto got frustrated with the detailed work. It was taking too long for his tastes and the actual technique was more difficult than any other move he had tried to perform in teh past. Getting up, he walked to the kitchens and grabbed a few fruit. After a little snack he was going to keep going and push through his own frustration.

    Tyler smiled "Thanks, i think you'll enjoy your new guests" he said. He bowed back to Lodium and followed Makoto back into the masnion. Walking through the house, he walked out the front door and let his friends inside, it was a pack of wild wolves with pure white fur. He spoke to them in their language, greeting them and letting them know they had nothing to fear. The leader Malikai was the only wolf with unique features, the fur on his paws were black. He lead them back through the mansion and took them to the rear courtyard, He greeted Lodium "This is Malikai" pointing to the unique wolf "And this is his pack" he said. The wolf barked and snarled, but in his language he was actually saying "Hello, it's a pleasure to meet you"

    Lodium was still infront of his steel peices, he was concentrating. Focusing on speeding up the atomic structure of the steel bar to make it become warmer.

    Lodium placed his hand on the bar to test its temperature, it was luke warm and through no efforts of Lodium's. The evening sun had been incontact with the steel bar. Looking up at tyler as he brought a white fured friend Lodium remained sat on the floor with his legs crossed. With a light growl and a little bow of the head Lodium replied to malikai.

    STanding up Lodium addressed Tyler, it was rather odd the name of his wolfen friend, all too familiar.

    "You know tyler, my father had a body guard named Malakai. Rather odd if you ask me. Hated the guy like but he's dead now so what does that matter."

    With a slight chuckle Lodium strolled on to one of the wooden decks were another pot of tea had already been made. Picking up a cup and pouring himself some tea, Lodium made a slight gesture towards tyler for some more tea.

    Makoto began once more. He was tired, his body fatigued and he felt pain from manipulating his reiatsu in a way he had practically invented since he had never been taught to do this. His base reiatsu covered his body once more, like a thin layer of fabric below the armor that knights in human lore would wear. Then, he pushed the minimum reiatsu out, creating a second layer of the reiatsu. This time, he managed to leave the spots he needed to be able to move, flexible.

    He had an image of those gallant knights when he started so it was only natural to want to mold similar armor. Everyone seemed to be interested in making samurai looking armor, but he wanted that sleek, shiny, steel looking armor that just yelled out that he was bad ass.

    After a few moments, he had the basic structure of the shape he was looking for. Then, Makoto began to add the properties he wanted to the brilliant golden reiatsu covering his body. Sweat beaded on his brow as he focused and worked the energy.

    The golden glow began to dim just a bit, slowly at first, and then more quickly as it changed. Makoto was changing the properties of this reiatsu to something similar to diamond hardness with a shiny, steel, gold color. Standing up, still holding the completed reiatsu armor, Makoto exhaled slowly as the stress of molding the reiastu left him with this finished product. Grinning, Makoto quickly produced his reiatsu blade, the golden looking asauchi forming just as solid as the armor he wore.

    Now, standing among Lycans and wolves, seemed to be a brilliant golden glowing knight. He held up his sword in triumph over the technique. He approached Tyler and Lodium with his completed product.

    "..." Makoto said nothing because his armor spoke for itself.

    He had finished the technique and was ready for what ever his teacher had to show him next.

    Lodium was sipping on tea with tyler when makoto appeared. Typical the boy had chosen to be orginal again. Smiling Lodium stood up setting his tea down next to the pot. Turning his head towards tyler Lodium just had a big grin on his face.

    "You might want to make sure your tea is within arms reach, and please control your friends for this part."

    Smiling Lodium turned back to makoto, his daggers coming out of his sleeves like normal ready for the fight.

    "You see Makoto, as i do admit tyler is stronger than me, i could still give him a run for his money. Where i lack Zanjutsu and Hakuda i make up for it with Reitasu and kidou."

    Bringing his daggers infront of him, he began spinning them in his hands.

    "Now Makoto i make you graduate...Walk among the shadows, Mist of the living Darkness."

    Lodium dark mist poured out across the entire courtyard. All sight to any one but Lodium had been taking away. Moving into his Kidou stance Lodium used the element of surprise from his quick release to attack Makoto. A beam of white lighting moved straight forth from Lodium aimed at Makoto chest however this was the distraction.

    With Lodium's other hand he fired a thuder roar off to his left. The dark mist englufing it with dark step, taking the kidou and moving it to appear from Makoto left hand side. Using dark step himself Lodium appeared behind makoto. WIth two kidou's already on course for makoto Lodium brought both his hands up ready for yet another kidou.

    "Binding Art 61: Six Truncheon Light Prison"

    Lodium aimed the kidou ready to take in any movements of makoto and catch him with the binding kidou. Lodium was not going to hold back here, and Makoto would be brought to his knees.

    Tyler smiled, this was the first time he'd seen Lodium's release. He tracked all of Lodium and Makoto's movements through his heightened senses. It was easier for him to see with his eyes closed at this moment. Tyler scoffed "three kidou in a row, that's a bit extreme aint it? especially with how deadly they are" he thought to himself. Taking a sip of his tea he relaxed sitting cross legged on the ground. He was "watching" lodium and makoto closely.

    Make him graduate? Makoto frowned as the words even held a bitter taste to them. NOBODY, would make him do anything. They would have to make a formal request and then await his own personal response to the inquiry. That was just how he was.

    "Fine then, lets go. It doesn't matter how strong you are compared to Tyler when you think about it. Either one of you could easily destroy me without hesitation. As for "making" me graduate, it will come in due time and nothing you do will accelerate that process." Makoto said being his usual cocky self.

    He sighed as Lodium released his zanpakutou. The usual spiritual pressure that would make Makoto's breath come short seemed to be lacking. After a moment of thought on it, he realized that it was not Lodium who was holding back, but Makoto himself had become stronger.

    He could not see, but it did not matter too much. He could still feel reiatsu signatures and the reiatsu that a third seated officer casting kido, any kido really, was enough that Makoto would know where the attack was coming from if the kido was going to be able to do anything to him, especially with his reiatsu armor fully manifested.

    At seemingly the same time, he could hear the tell tale sound of Lodium's thunder roar canon being fired.

    "Binding art #8, Seki!"

    The shield unfurled starting in the center of his forearm until it was large enough to shield a good portion of his body, only adding to the theme of being a gallant knight. Makoto blocked the white lightning with his reiatsu blade and managed to deflect the thunder roar canon as his seki was destroyed in exchange.

    A little off balance, Makoto stood his ground. He was not going to run around and waste his energy if he could not see anyway. As suddenly as the thunder roar canon was blocked, Makoto felt a sensation of weightlessness as six beams of light suddenly slammed into his torso, bending the reiatsu of his armor. It was thanks only to the armor that he was able to stay standing and breathing, though his breath came quickly due to the squeezing force. Hair line fractures began to snake their way up through his armor as proof of the binding kido being more powerful than the armor Makoto could manifest.

    "This... all you.... got?" Makoto asked struggling for breath against the binding kido.

    Lodium smiled he was impressed, Makoto had managed to stop his thunder roar cannon with his recently leanr kidou. Impressed by Makoto's quick skills Lodium's reiatsu started to fill the area, making reiatsu detection near impossible to actual pin point Lodium.

    Taking up his usual kidou stance, Lodium used dark step once more to appear only a few feet infront of Makoto. Applying more reiatsu to the light prision Kidou, Lodium aimed to shatter Makoto's reiatsu armour in to, and hopefully fracture a few bones.

    Pushing his right hand forward, his hand glowed with blue fire. Aiming at Makoto's right shoulder the blue fire shot forward. Smirking Lodium disappeared once more using dark step. As Lodium landed his reiatsu signiture dropped down, if anything Makoto would sense tyler more than Lodium.

    Standing near Tyler, Lodium patted his wolfen friend Malikai on the head before quietly circling around the courtyard.

    ((Time to get this show on the road I suppose. Props to Shane for finally getting me my official points ))

    This was just great. Makoto was struggling for breath and the one trick he had been using to pin point Lodium went out the window as he spread his spiritual energy around the entire area effectively masking him from the unwary student. The stress fractures in his armor began to wind their way even further around as the Makoto felt Lodium increase his spiritual energy going into this particular kido. Suddenly, Makoto felt a huge impact that seemed to tear his shoulder apart. Thanks to his quickly failing reiatsu armor though, he was saved most of the actual attack.

    Moments later, Makoto let out a yelp like a kicked dog as the imprisoning kido coupled with Lodium's last attack finally broke through, shattering his armor. The shards of reiatsu, still formatted to be as hard as diamond fell to the ground in a beautiful shower. All Makoto knew now was simply darkness, a shadow perhaps even darker than the visual masterpiece conjured up by Lodium in his zanpakuto release. Falling to the ground, Makoto was out. He had put up a good fight... for a student that is. Blood ran from his mouth and his eyes, half open, were glazed over showing that he was no longer even conscious to the physical world anymore. Several of his ribs were not just broken, but shattered thanks to the rapid release of the reiatsu armor.

    Makoto felt the strangest sensation of vertigo as the darkness enshrouded his mind. Was this what it was like to die? Simple, peaceful, quiet... yet at the same time, Makoto felt as though something were pulling at his stomach giving the feeling of him accelerating in an unknown direction.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------- ((this point forwards takes place mentally.... er... spiritually... whatever, you know what I mean))

    Makoto felt his mind awaken and strangely enough, he realized his eyes were closed. Upon opening them, he found that there was a little light that seemed to flicker from somewhere in front of him. It took a moment for his eyes to adjust but when he did, Makoto lost his breath. The gates... the ones that had haunted his dreams, the ones he never was able to really interact with because every time he got close something would happen and he would wake up....

    Was this a dream? No, it was too real or was it? Makoto's ribs hurt, he could feel them having broken in his last bout with Lodium. Was this some kind of test like when he first arrived to the Ayer compound? No, something was different... familiar... Makoto walked forwards, slowly because he felt fear swelling in his heart.

    Placing his hand upon the gates, he noticed that they were without decoration. The kanji inscribed seal was nowhere to be found. Last time he had made contact with the gates, a voice... he could faintly remember it but could not fully remember, like when a word is on the tip of ones tongue and try as you might you cannot remember it. Makoto pushed forwards and strangely enough, the large gates moved just a little before locking. This was stupid, why did he want to see what was beyond this large doorway anyway! He needed to get back to training, but at the same time, he felt called to this place as though by destiny.

    Steadying his resolve, Makoto raised his foot up and kicked with all his might at the doorway. Seemingly sensing that he no longer felt fearful of what was to come, the doorway easily swung open revealing only darkness beyond what the small torches on the outside of the doorway lit up. Makoto stepped forwards, ready to accept what ever would greet him.

    Makoto stepped forwards and promptly found himself unable to move. He didn't feel restrained, was it the lack of light throwing his senses off? NO, he was simply unable to move. Makoto struggled to maintain his sense of calm despite the maddening feeling of being watched that suddenly blanketed him.

    "WHO IS THERE!" Makoto finally shouted, overpowering the strange feeling that had not allowed him to speak at first.

    "Who indeed little one..."

    Makoto was taken aback when the strong voice, obviously male, echoed around him, filling the darkness and illuminating everything around him.

    Suddenly, bits of gold and white binary swirled around him. Everything around Makoto glowed with the light given off. Thin sheets of reiatsu formed before his face as though computer terminals and even these had very very small bits of gold binary running through them. The screens showed Makoto's body... his real body, it could see him, Tyler, Lodium... the area around them really.

    "Who... what..." Makoto stammered.

    A very large dragon with parts that seemed to be made of teh same binary coding came out of the sky. Its massive form seemed to go on forever though it did have a definitive beginning and end.

    "Questions, answers, all bits of data. I suppose its time to finally let you in on the grand scheme of things. For awhile now, I have guarded you, watched over your development as a shinigami, and now its time for me to join you at your side. Yes... I see you finally understand little Makoto. This is your TRUE inner soul and I am your zanpakuto. My name? Ha, arrogant as ever young one. That is a treasure you have not earned yet and the information would destroy you. For now, be at peace with yourself and know I am watching you, observing, and always learning."


    The great dragon had answered questions Makoto had before he could even ask them. There was no fear, only understanding. A small grin spread over Makoto's face as TRUTH spread over him. All he had to do was nod to the dragon. Nothing needed to be said because the two of them were one and the same. Makoto wanted to get to know his zanpakutou, but he understood that first, he would need more information and needed to get much more powerful if he were to ever really know anything about his zanpakuto, and himself. As the dragon disappeared off into the unseen sky, Makoto held out his hand and bits of the golden binary suddenly manifested a sword before him.

    The sheath was golden and the guard was shaped like the claw of a golden dragon. The hilt had white beneath the golden cloth that bound it and at the end, a small chain with a dragon curled in on itself hung, white against the bright gold of the rest of the blade.

    -------------------

    In the real world, Makoto was still unconscious, but in a flash of gold reiatsu strong enough to break the kido that was holding him, a sword would be seen in his hand.... he was officially a shinigami.

    Lodium smiled as Makoto broke throught he binding art 61. Lodium wasnt quiet surprised thou, the lack of concentration on the kidou and makoto's sudden increase deemed worthy to break the failing kidou.

    The mist around the area began to come back to Lodium. the mist stayed,Hovering around at his feet, Lodium hadnt decieded what to do next and the mist was waiting for its command. Lodium gave a quick look back towards tyler, then back towards makoto before he considered what to do next.

    Walking over to Makoto, Lodium assisted the boy with standing up before he patted the boys good shoulder.

    "Very good, congratulations makoto. I'd was hoping that it would happen while we are here so i packed it just incase....You my student are now part of the 12th. Congratulations once more."

    Lodium reached into his robes where he pulled out a 12th badge before his shikai sealed it's self. With an open palm he offered Makoto the 12th badge he was given when he first joined the 12th. Turning back towards the decking Lodium sat down and began drinking some more tea. Before he looked at makoto with a proud look.

    "Do you have any questions, Makoto-san"

    As Lodium lifted Makoto to his feet, he had a death grip upon his brand new zanpakuto. The brilliant golden color seemed to glow all the time and Makoto simply felt honored that his zanpakuto spirit had finally deemed him worthy of wielding such a beautiful sword. A tear rolled down his face, not from the pain, but from pure joy at what he had accomplished. Everything he had worked for, all of the blood, the sweat, and yes, even the handful of tears that had been shed... all of it had just paid off in an instant.

    Just before Lodium handed Makoto his official division badge, he neatly tied his zanpakuto to his left hip. The blade didn't feel awkward or heavy when he had held it. There was no time he needed to spend getting used to the weight of the sword or finding its balance. It was simply perfect, as though it were a weapon Makoto had been wielding since birth. Makoto fastened the badge to his left arm, aligned with his zanpakutou. He took a moment to adjust it, making everything symmetrical. It was strange, Makoto didn't feel as different as he had imagined. Sure he had a deeper understanding of himself now, and the limits on himself that he had experienced before were nowhere to be felt... but overall he was still Makoto Kobayashi.

    "Heh, just one sensei, can I take a nap?" Makoto asked as his body started to go limp.

    The exertion in the little spar against Lodium, coupled with the fatigue he felt by the explosion of power having discovered his zanpakutou and inner spirit had left him drained. Even his skin was a little more pale. Still, despite the pain and fatigue, Makoto wore a great smile showing off his perfectly straight and white teeth. Simply put, he was proud of himself more than anything else right now.

    Lodium chuckled at makoto's request, he wasn't surprised to be honest. Most students passed out after graduation from lack of reiatsu but there Makoto stood. Chucking Lodium placed a hand on his good shoulder.

    "Sure i could take you there if you want..."

    Lodium burst into laughter, teasing makoto on his disliking for being carried.

    "Go on kiddo, go get some rest, we'll see you soon."

    Lodium turned around facing Tyler, now that Makoto had been taken care of it was time to get back to training. Serious training, nothing like he had done so far.

    "Tyler please feel free to use the facilities and such but don't be going any where I'm going to need you shortly."

    With a little bow Lodium vanished leaving Tyler and his wolf-en friends in the courtyard. Appearing within the throne room, Lodium strolled over to the chair where his tablet had been running data. Picking it up, Lodium looked slightly confused. The tablet was showing strange algorithms for the last kidou analysis.

    Studying the data, Lodium began to see equations on space and time. Taking a seat within the chair Lodium remembered the space time bridge he had created awhile back. Slowly Lodium began to piece his last experiment together with the last kidou he had performed.

    "for the space time bridge, we had to create an area of space where time would be frozen long enough to hold a stable connection between the two dimensions. With kidou....."

    Lodium was starting to work on something big, little did he know it, when Lodium cracked this new mystery it would open new possibilities to his world. Holding out his arm he formed the seki kidou once again, and watched it form.

    "Oh...the atoms around the air plus reiatsu as fuel, the kidou changes the space around it to the correct specifications of the kidou, thus..."

    Lodium stood up from the chair, immediately taking up his kidou stance. Although he had used a bit of reiatsu from his little fight with makoto, he still had plenty left to try this. Pushing a fair amount of reiatsu into his arm Lodium began to form the seki kidou once again. This time however Lodium fueled the kidou with more reiatsu, forcing the particles within the air to change and mold to the kidou's benefit.

    Slowly at first the kidou began stretching out, growing in size. Concentrating as hard as he could Lodium thought back to his teachers lessons. As short lived as they were they all had one thing in common. Everything within this world, from the air to the ground that we walk on is made up of spirit particles.

    With this in mind, Lodium pushed his reiatsu some more but focused on the spirit particles in front of him. The kidou glowed as it formed from his feet to his head. The glowing back shield looked slightly weak but never the less it was formed. Breaking his own concentration Lodium let the kidou slip and the whole thing vanished. Sitting down Lodium picked up his tablet. The device had already got to work on the new data from Lodium's current kidou attempt.

    "Oh this is most interesting! Kidou arts have a massive relation to space and time. Reiatsu has an important part to play in that aspect to. Without it kidou wouldn't exist, but applying that knowledge to every equation and law. Everything i know could be change just like that!"

    The device in Lodium's lap started beeping at him, although his mind was focused on space time theoretics the machine had drawn his attention for one reason.

    "Kidou already exist? Continuation of Binding art 8 Seki..Binding art 39. Enkosen!"

    Lodium read the data from the tablet with confusion, but after a second of thought he wasn't surprised really. Some cleaver clogs before his time had already figured at the whole space and time gig.

    Standing up Lodium set the tablet down once more, and took his Kidou stance once again. This time was different, he knew the new kidou by name and wasn't trying to force a low level kidou to be stronger. With a slight raise of reiatsu brought his left arm over his head before bringing it down in front of him as he shouted.

    "BINDING ART 39. ENKOSEN!"

    The kidou formed rapidly, without hesitation making Lodium's whole movements look fluid. The kidou held with stability as the black shield shone in front of him. It would take some more training before Lodium could use this kidou in battle as it still needed to be strengthened. However Lodium was getting to grips with all this space time kidou theoretics.

    Clenching his fist as the kidou faded away, Lodium held a look of determination on his face.

    Makoto had blacked out just before Lodium had taken him to his room so he did not remember much at all. As he slept, the world he had experienced for his graduation was out of reach. Opening his eyes, Makoto felt a bit ashamed that he had been trying to get back to that place. It was not HIS home, it belonged to his zanpakuto and he had attempted to go there without asking. Though, he supposed it didn't matter much since his zanpakuto had already told him that they would not see each other for quite some time because Makoto was too weak.

    Sitting up, Makoto stretched his shoulder out from the impact from earlier. It took a little bit for the muscles to get back to their normal state, but after the fact, Makoto felt pretty great. Now that he was a shinigami, Makoto felt like he had time to practice his next reiatsu technique. Or rather, create it. He wanted to make something practical, something that could protect him and attack at the same time while also would increase his ability to manipulate spiritual particles.

    "All great things start small I suppose. Just like the mighty oak tree begins as a seed, so shall this technique." Makoto murmured.

    Holding out his hands, palms up with the tops of his hands resting on his knees in a meditative posture, Makoto formed to spheres of reiatsu. He already knew how to create solid masses but what about actually moving the spheres about? If he could turn these into weapons and then eventually manipulate the shapes of teh spheres into weapons, it would add quite a bit of power to his little arsenal of tricks.

    Makoto focused on teh spheres, letting them rise up in his palms and hover there. Sweat beaded on his brow as he began to make the spheres spin about, not moving, but rotating in place. Makoto raised them up, higher into the air. Left, then right as the left one descended. A little exercise to began creating the type of control he needed. After a few moments of this exercise, Makoto let his reiatsu fade away.

    Standing up, he went and bathed quickly. Then, he put on his fresh robes and tied his zanpakuto to his left hip. Before leaving to start the day, Makoto shined up the 12th division badge so that it looked brand new, and tied it to his left arm creating a kind of beautiful symmetry with his golden zanpakuto. Makoto slid his door shut and walked out to the courtyard. An idea occured to him, perhaps he would be able to impress his sensei if he mastered his reiatsu technique and showed him. For now though, that "meditation time" would remain as secret as he could keep it.

    Makoto stepped out into the middle of the courtyard and stretched for a moment. Perhaps soon Lodium would show him a new kido or some other kind of trick.

    As makoto stood in the courtyard, he realized that Lodium was not just here to teach him, but to train himself as well. Grinning at how arrogant he had just found himself, makoto pulled out his kido book and flipped through the pages looking for a good binding kido. After a moment, he found the one he wanted to learn next.

    "Binding Art 4: Crawling Rope, looks useful and easy enough. A good warm up while Tyler and Lodium do what ever it is they are doing will be fun." Makoto said with a cheerful grin.

    Firing a broad sudden impact at the ground beneath him to clean all the leaves, bugs, and other things he didn't want on his robes, Makoto sat down and began reading the theory relating to the kido and observing the diagrams of how it was actually cast.

    Makoto put his book away as he finished reading up on teh kido. It was simple enough and exceptionally useful especially with its low reiatsu cost. Makoto decided that it would be best to go back to his room to work since he also wanted to work on the reiatsu technique he was creating for himself.

    "Please forgive the rudeness Tyler, but I am going to go train in private. If you would like, we can have another sparring match later, or perhaps you could even share some of your wisdom in reiastu control with me. Its all up to you really." Makoto said with a sly smile as he headed for his private quarters.

    Arriving at his room, Makoto slid the door shut. He walked over to the middle of his quarters and pointed his hand forwards.

    "Binding Art 4: Crawling Rope"

    As Makoto said the words, he adjusted his reiatsu saturation and fired the kido at its minimum strength. A very thin, almost wispy, golden string fired from his hand and was seeking to ensnare a targets arms just before it vanished having no real target. Makoto was pleased with himself for learning the kido, but that was just a small accomplishment in his mind.

    Sitting down, Makoto lay his zanpakuto across his lap and at the same time he placed his hands, palms up, on his zanpakuto. Again, Makoto brought out his reiatsu and formed it into two spheres. This time, he focused much harder. The spheres rose up, rotating in place just as they had before. Only this time, Makoto began making them slowly orbit his body. They were no further away from him than where the spheres had originally started in his hands, but it was still a good exercise for him. Slowly they spun, Makoto saw himself as the sun and these spheres as planetary bodies orbiting him, protecting him, and in a sense singing to him. That was when the name of his technique hit him. Even if it turned out to be a technique that others had already been able to do, Makoto was going to make it his.

    "Musica Universalis..."

    Universal music, the music of the universe, it simply fit in Makoto's mind. Of course, he still had a ways to go from this point, but the Musica Universalis was going to be a good technique, he knew it. It just needed to be created first and that was a thought that made Makoto chuckle just a little bit.
