0010 - Anyway, the rest of the one-sentence fic requests --
incognito asked for Ichigo/Rukia, heart [Bleach]
In the end, Ichigo didn't put a hand over his heart or any of that other noble-minded nonsense; Rukia said yes anyway.
incognito asked for Ichigo/Byakuya, breaking the rules [Bleach]
Byakuya didn't know if he should be pleased or annoyed that there was nothing in the Gotei 13 rule books about captains consorting with substitute Shinigami.
incognito asked for Ichigo/Renji, an unexpected trip [Bleach]
After being forced to train in West Rukongai to avoid making low-level Shinigami pass out, Ichigo and Renji found a few new interesting ways to pass the time between rounds of fighting.
acromantular asked for Gollum/Neo. Shoes [Lord of the Rings / The Matrix]
Neo didn't know why the freakish creature trailing after him kept muttering, "shoesssss, preciousssss", but after a while, it became sort of cute.
mizbean asked for Orihime/Rukia, awake [Bleach]
Even years later, Inoue still addresses her as Kuchiki-san -- except in those sleepy, jumbled moments first thing in the morning.
incapricious asked for Chad/Nova, crowd [Bleach (+anime filler)]
Nova used to think even two people were a crowd -- until Chad came along.
mr_mercutio asked for Gimli & Treebeard, wood [Lord of the Rings]
Gimli never did get to visit Fangorn Forest again before sailing to the Undying Lands with Legolas; it seemed Treebeard could hold grudges with the best of them.
midnight_birth asked for Frodo/Sam. Pig [Lord of the Rings]
Even when Mr Frodo looks like he's just taken a bath in approximately eighteen mud puddles, Sam still loves him.
symetric asked for Roy/Ed. Lost [FMA]
Edward Elric had been a lost little boy when they met; as a young man, Edward was no longer lost, but he would always be special to Roy Mustang.

"I was just checking Old Man Willow for new shoots after the rain," Tom Bombadil always told people about that incident.
danbi asked for Isshin/Ryuuken, pasta salad [Bleach]
"I didn't know pasta salad could be used so... ornamentally," Isshin remarked, picking gemelli out of his hair and doing his best to ignore Ryuuken's death glare.
meritjubet asked for Rukia/Ed, the matter of freakishly tall people [Bleach / FMA]
Ed had a gigantic suit of armour for a brother, and Rukia's brother towered even over people taller than himself -- clearly it would be a match made in heaven.
djin7 asked for Ed/Ling "Nobody can hurt me without my permission." [FMA]
"I let Greed take me because that way we can both win, you idiot of an alchemist."
gossymer asked for Hitsugaya/Edward, weapons [Bleach / FMA]
No matter which way you cut it -- with a zanpakutou, a steak knife, or using alchemy -- they were both very, very short.
carlatron asked for Gandalf/Morpheus, YOU SHALL NOT PASS [Lord of the Rings / The Matrix]
"Well, I'd say "YOU SHALL NOT PASS" is a little dramatic; I just want to use the john," groused Morpheus, sidestepping the white-haired wizard.

micro_raptor asked for Fangorn / Gandalf. On Wizardly staves [Lord of the Rings]
"Burarum, Gandalf, don't take me for a fool -- the Istari trees can't possibly be dead before they're born."
0011 - In other news, AI season 8 begins tomorrow! :D There's apparently a fourth judge this year, too, which made me wonder: I've never watched a season with a guest judge -- how do they decide if the vote is split down the middle? Coin toss? Veto-ing poor Paula? Anyone? Bueller?
