Why this fic? Because thereÆs not enough Hanatarou out there. And thereÆs not nearly enough bleach fics. So I combined my love for the series to my love for this character andà HereÆs Gourd of Purity. Enjoy!

P.S.: This is an AU that begins before the start of the series.

Prologue

ôà ItÆs that day againàö

Hanatarou sighed deeply. Indeed, it was day again. He could feel it from the murderous glares directed at his back. The day when even his fellow 4th Division comrades hated his guts and tried to prank him. That was because it was Wednesday. And Wednesday meant that he had one particular assignment that made most of his comrades in the fourth division jealous of him. On Wednesdayà He was assigned to clean Lieutenant Kotetsu IsaneÆs quarters. Well, not quite a task to be jealous of? Well, there was the matter that the pretty and very tall girl had a peculiarityà After a week of usage without cleaning, her room was chaotic. With particularà Garments spread everywhere. To Hanatarou handling these kind of things was just normal. He had handled worseà But the point was, his peers didnÆt think it was a bad thing at all, considering the girlÆs body.

Hanatarou had asked his captain if he could switch assignments with someone else, but she had just replied with a sweet voice that it couldnÆt be done because he was the only man, emphasis on æmanÆ, she trusted with taking care of their rooms. Hanatarou had tried to protest a little, but another sweet smile of the persuasive/threatening kind settled the argument in UnohanaÆs favour. Wednesday was probably the worst day of the week, for Hanatarou. Apart Sunday, of course. Because on Sunday he had to clean Captain UnohanaÆs quarters.

Like everything ever done to him, Hanatarou just shrugged it off or just submitted and took it all without reacting. He simply walked to the door of captain IsaneÆs quarters and opened the door with the key of which he had the only copy. He closed it right behind him and then turned around, scratching his head. One would believe that the lieutenant of the 4th Division would be more diligent about her private spaceà But it seems that at least that was something in which she was identical to her younger sister. Hanatarou began by picking a towel that was at his feet.

ôChanging oneÆs underwear and taking a shower daily is a good habit, butàö Hanatarou looked around, taking in the offense to order that was IsaneÆs room. ôShe should at least put the towels back in the bathroom.ö He sighed. Two good hours of work for him.

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

ôDamn that Hanatarouàö Even if Hanatarou didnÆt know shit about it, there was a good part of his peers, in his division, made up of people envious of him. The boy was very young, in Shinigami years. And yet, he just recently had become a seated officer of the division. 7th seat wasnÆt very big, but it wasnÆt shabby either. But what made most of the people envious of it were his Wednesday and Sunday assignments. This made him envied by even the 3rd seat Lemura Yasochika. It was one of the few matters he muttered about in broad daylight, even if still under his breath. ôA 7th trusted with such crucial tasks. Unforgivableà I bet that itÆs all because of him not being a pervert and that cute face and his submissive nature andà àö Yasochika decided to stop the grumbling, since he couldnÆt bring up any argument that could help him think further idly of the boy.

ôHey, Yasochikaaaaaa!ö

ôHn?ö The 3rd seat turned in the direction of the voice that had called his name, to meet the gaze and cheerful waving of a fellow 3rd seat. Namely one Kotetsu Kiyone from the 13th Division. ôOh, Kiyone-chan. If youÆre looking for your sister, she isnÆt here.ö

ôI know, I know! I just wanted to make her a surprise! Ta-daaa!ö Kiyone suddenly held out to him a box enveloped in a coloured cloth. ôI took some of her favourite sweets! IÆll just leave them in her room!ö

ôHer room? Well, currentlyà àö Yasochika was about to tell her that Hanatarou was in thereà But then decided against it. His inner self was smirking maliciously. Almost Zaraki-like. ôOf course. I suppose you have a spare key.ö

ôYes. IÆll see you later! Bye!ö

ôàö While the fellow 3rd officer ran to her sisterÆs room, Yasochika smirked and pushed back his glasses with two fingers. The dear Hanatarou was going to have a little surpriseà

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

ôHmmmà All done.ö Hanatarou had managed to finish, finally. He had cleaned the room, dusted off everything, washed everything and even gave some wax. The only thing left to do was to bring the enormous pile of dirty clothes to the laundry. ôHmmà LetÆs focus streeenghtàö Hanatarou began to take in deep breaths and then kneeled down. ôHeavyheavyheavyheavyà Uh?ö Suddenly Hanatarou turned in the direction of the door when he heard it open. Who could have another copy of the roomÆs key?

ôHmmm, I should probably leave ità àö

ôàö

When Kiyone opened the room, this is the scenery that was in front of her. A male Shinigami with a bundle of dirty towel and clothes in his arms. Most of the clothes were undergarments belonging to her sister. She recognized the blue bra she had gave her as a present on her last birthday. And the boy was sweaty. So, all brought her mind to one, single, wordà

ôPERVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERT!ö

ôWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!ö

In the hallway, Yasochika smirked and then proceeded to cackle evilly, freaking the hell out of many of his subordinates around.

Gourd of Purity
Chapter1: Freaking pervert!


ôAhhhà This Lieutenant meeting was longer than usualàö Isane stretched her arms up in the air, enjoying the warmth that the sun was bringing her. Even if the meeting was longer than usual, she didnÆt felt really tired, also thanks to the sun and how calm it was. Everything normalà Well, apart their 3rd seat snickering. That made her raise an eyebrow, but she shrugged it off nonetheless. She was about to knock on her CaptainÆs officeÆs door whenà

ôHE WAS STEALING UNDERWEAR! I SWEAR!ö

ôà Kiyone?ö Isane took a step back, hearing her little sisterÆs loud voice screaming something about someone stealing underwear. She slowly opened the door and came to witness a beaten and tied up Hanatarou, a screaming Kiyone and captain Unohana still smiling.

ôAs I already said many times, Kiyone-chan, Hanatarou was merely attending to his duties. One of those comprehend him taking your sisterÆs dirty clothes to the laundry.ö Calmly replied the 4th Division Captain. Kiyone just replied by throwing another tantrum.

ôBUT HE WAS TOUCHING THEM!ö Isane palmed her face. Since when did anyone develop psychic powers to avoid touching dirty female clothes? She sighed and made her presence known.

ôKiyone, youÆre not making any sense at all.ö

ôUh? Nee-chan!ö Kiyone suddenly took a turn for the better and handed her older sister the clothed box. ôYour favourite sweets!ö

ôAh, thank you.ö Isane accepted them and put them on the ground beside her. ôNow, what is this aboutàö

ôTHIS FREAKING PERVERT!ö Kiyone returned to her angry mode and pointed an accusing finger at Hanatarou. Who just sniffled a bit.

ôà I was taking out the laundry when she barged in and attacked meàö Said the only male in the room with a whiney voice. KiyoneÆs forehead twitched.

ôYOUÆRE TRYING TO BLAME ME?!ö

ôKiyone-chan, I have to ask you to calm down.ö Kiyone was about to retortà When she met UnohanaÆs gaze. And she thought that something was wrong with her, since she found the 4th Division Captain more frightening than Zaraki Kenpachi, at the moment. ôThis division is fundamentally an hospital. We canÆt allow people to be loud in here, canÆt we?ö

ôà Y-Yes, maÆam. I humbly apologize.ö Kiyone did a deep bow, and the frightening aura started to disappear, much to her relief. Unohana smiled with the normal smile, this time.

ôNow, as IÆve been saying and repeating many times, Kiyone-chan, HanatarouÆs presence in the room and his handling of your sisterÆs underwear is perfectly normal.ö Isane blushed scarlet. ôItÆs part of his duties.ö

ôB-Butà ShouldnÆt normally be a girl to take care of another girlÆs laundry?ö Asked Kiyone, still a bit perplexed about that matter.

ôShortage of people available. But donÆt worry. Hanatarou is different from most of the other boys. Right, Hanatarou?ö Isane was untying the poor boy.

ôEhmà I-I guessàö The seventh seat scratched the back of his head while getting back on his feet.

ôàö Kiyone narrowed her eyes at him, though. She wasnÆt convinced, it seemed. ôStillàö

ôWell, if you want make sure, you can verify it weÆre sincere or not personally.ö At that, everyone else but Unohana blinked. ôYou are allowed toà æEscort himÆ during the exercise of his duties for a few hours a day till youÆre convinced that he isnÆt a æfreaking pervertÆ, if you want.ö

ôWHAT?!ö IsaneÆs face was priceless. Kiyone cheered.

ôAlright! Fine for me!ö

ôB-B-B-But, Captainàö Hanatarou was really nervous. He didnÆt like how that sounded. At all.

ôYou can start right now, if you want. IÆll communicate the arrangement to Captain Ukitake. Please, Hanatarou, go back to your duties.ö Hanatarou flinched because of the gaze that Unohana sent his way, even if it was just for one second. The conversation was over.

ôà Yes, maÆam.ö Hanatarou bowed and then proceeded to hurry out of the room.

ôHa! Wait! DonÆt try to escape my vigilance!ö Once the younger Kotetsu was out the room as well, Isane stared at the now closed door for a bità Before sighing deeply.

ôI should probably start taking care of my laundry myselfàö

ôIndeed you should.ö Unohana chuckled and began to write on a piece of paper that she had pulled out of her deskÆs drawer. Isane suddenly began to stare at her direct superior.

ôà Captainà You have something in mind, donÆt you?ö

Reading about Hanataro is always fun, but one has to wonder about exactly why Unohana decided to emasculate Hanataro by talking about him like he's some sort of eunuch.

Maybe they're trying to desensitize him to the female form and the intimacy of female undergarments, thus ensuring that he'll last MUCH longer when they finally tie him to the bed and see what happens when his 'red gauge' reaches maximum.

I don't quite understand the title. Is it supposed to be 'Gourd of Purity', or 'Guard of Purity'?

Gourd. It comes from the name of Hanatarou's zanpaku-to, Hisagomaru, which means, as far as I know, "Gourd."

I have actually never considered that use of his zanpakuto, my perversion is weak.
Beyond that all I can say is that I like this fic, I like Hanataro's character but he's only paired up with Byakuya and that G-guy (I can't remember his name).

Yeah, it's honestly very disturbing. The only time I haven't seen Hanatarou paired with Byakuya or Ganju is this one piece of fanart where an older Yachiru carries him off to "go bang" before she went hollow-hunting with Kenpachi. I can't seem to find it now, though.

Don't feel bad; I'm sure that with a little bit of effort, you'll be a raging hentai just like the rest of us. Oh, and I'm assuming you're talking about Ganju, the fireworks guy.

And yes, I've run across fics that pair the two.

This wins simply for having Hanataro. :hail:

That said, it will win more with large amounts of Isane. :drool:

Next snippet! Enjoy!


ôHmmmà Ahhhh! IÆm bored!ö

ôEhmà YouÆve just been observing me for an hour, Kiyone-sanàö Indeed she had been. Just one hour and the girl was already bored out of her mind. That was strange, in HanatarouÆs mind but to Kiyoneà Well, observing someone doing chores isnÆt exactly that great of an entertainment.

ôItÆs your fault for not doing anything else but chores!ö

ôButà ItÆs because of the other divisions that us of the 4th one are forced to do thisàö Kiyone flinched. How was she supposed to say something if he talked with the voice of a beaten puppy?

ôEhmà But, I mean, donÆt you do everything but chores?! YouÆre a Shinigami too! A seventh seat, on top of that!ö Kiyone walked to him and practically shoved her face in front of his one. ôI bet you like to do chores, donÆt you?! Especially handling laundry!ö

ôT-ThatÆs not trueàö Hanatarou shifted his gaze to the ground, trying to think of something to make the crazy third seat calm down. ôI meanà We of the fourth division are specialized in healing. Mostly of the time, we operate in the hospital. We rarely go the real world or take part in missions. Myselfà IÆve never been on one.ö

ôHm?ö Kiyone blinked. ôThenà How did you manage to become a seated officer?ö

ôAh, thatÆsà Because of my ZanpakutoÆs power.ö Kiyone scratched her cheek. Just because of that he had become a seated officer? She wondered whatà Thenà She noticed something.

ôà Ehmà Where is it?ö

ôWhat?ö Hanatarou blinked, sincerely confused. What was she talking about? Kiyone pointed at his waist, frowning a little.

ôYour Zanpakuto. If itÆs so awesome that you became a seated officer just because of that, why donÆt you carry it around? Hn?ö She narrowed her eyes at him again. Hanataro moved his head to the right, looking at the ground.

ôW-Wellà ThatÆs becauseà Hisagomaru wonÆt talk to meàö Kiyone blinkedà And then frowned.

ôWhat the hell are you talking about? Communication and synchronization with your Zanpakuto are prerequisites for achieving Shikai!ö

ôWellà ItÆs not that she doesnÆt because I canÆt hear herà She doesnÆt talk to me anymore.ö Kiyone was a bit taken back from that. ôEver since I became a seated officer she didnÆt talk to me anymore. And I donÆt like it. Even when I use her, she complies but she keeps on being silent. Andà I donÆt like that. ThatÆs why I donÆt carry it around muchàö

ôàö Kiyone stared at him for a while. His Zanpakuto didnÆt talk to him out of its own will? That was the first time she heard about something like that. ôYouàö Suddenly, a bit began to make itself heard in the surroundings. Kiyone was a bit startled, but she quickly recognized it as the alarm of her wrist-watch. ôDamn! ItÆs late! IÆve got to go! See you tomorrow!ö Kiyone was in a hurry, it seemed. Hanatarou followed her with his eyes till she turned a corner. He calmly returned to his chore. Sweeping the ground.

ôAnd donÆt do anything perverted while IÆm not around!ö Hanatarou cringed at how loud her voice was.

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

ôHeeeellooo! LetÆs start the meeting! Vice-Chairwoman!ö

ôToday we shall talk aboutàö

Kiyone was troubled. She didnÆt know why, but she just couldnÆt get out of her mind what the pervert had said. His Zanpakuto didnÆt talk to him anymore out of its own will. She had never heard of anything like that. And she hated it when there was something that she didnÆt understand.

ôWhat is your opinion on the matter, Kiyone?ö

ôEh? Ah, yes! I completely agree!ö Suddenly, the girl felt the stares of everyone in the room upon her. ôW-What?ö

ôYouà Agree with the higher-upsÆ proposal of making female Shinigami wear skirts instead of hakaàö

ôWHAT?! OF COURSE NOT!ö Her sudden outburst just made the other Shinigami in the room stare at her even more strangely. Kiyone blushed and lowered her head. ôSorryà I was thinking aboutà Something elseàö Isane sighed.

ôExcuse her. SheÆs hadà A though morning.ö Kiyone twitched.

ôHey! ItÆs not about the pervert, nee-chan! Well, it is, but not that way!ö

ôPervert? What pervert?ö Asked Rangiku, the argument interesting her. Isane rolled her eyes.

ôThereÆs no pervert. Kiyone just walked in my room while Hanatarou was taking out my laundry, so, she now thinks heÆs a pervert.ö

ôI wasnÆt thinking about that!ö Kiyone exploded, the whole room once again focused on her. She crossed her arms in front of her chest and huffed. ôI was thinking about a thing he said to me.ö

ôSomething Hanatarou said?ö This got IsaneÆs attention as well. Her younger sister nodded.

ôYeahà He said that his Zanpakuto doesnÆt talk to him anymore.ö This really, really, really made the attention of everyone in the room go up by a good notch. ôOut of her own will, apparently. He can use its powers, but she doesnÆt talk.ö

ôHanatarouà For real?ö Now, it was KiyoneÆs turn to blink.

ôYouÆre his Lieutenant and you didnÆt know about something like this?ö Isane blushed, a bit embarrassed at being admonished from her little sister.

ôW-Wellà Hanatarou doesnÆt really talk about his problems with anyoneàö Isane brought a hand to her chin, in a thoughtful way. ôNow that I think about ità IÆve never seen him complaining about anything.ö

ôWhoÆs Hana?! DonÆt leave me out of this!ö Yachiru had suddenly jumped on her high seat, her childish curiosity suddenly perking at the sounds of the two sisters discussing. Isane just shook his head.

ôHeÆs the Seventh seat of my Division, Chairwoman.ö

ôAhhhh! The guy who our Division bullies around the most!ö The 4th DivisionÆs Lieutenant winched hearing that. Poor Hanatarouà

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

ôATCHOOOOOOOOOOM!ö

ôHanatarou! You idiot, watch where you sneeze!ö

ôS-Sorryàö Hanatarou bowed to his subordinate which he had just sneezed on. Yes. He had bowed to his subordinate. Hanatarou was so polite, clumsy and submissive that not even his position as a seated officer helped much or at all to make him gain respect. The only ones who showed him the respect due to a seated officer were his direct subordinates. The members of the 14th Relief team. But Hanatarou didnÆt mind. Or, if he did, he didnÆt show it at all. Now, as evening came to, he went back to the relative calm of his room. ôIÆm baaaaaaaackà Today was tiring as well.ö

To manyà Scratch that. To everyone, a man saying æIÆm backÆ after getting into an empty room. But for Shinigami, it can be excused if thereÆs a Zanpakuto in the room. Like HanatarouÆs one. Finely placed on top of his bed, along with the scabbard.

ôIt was such a strange day, Hisagomaru. I mean, Isane-sanÆs little sister mistook me for a pervert because I was taking out her laundry. IÆm not that kind of guyàö Silence. Hanatarou stared and then blushed and waved his hands in front of his face. ôI mean, not because IÆm gay or anything! I justà DonÆt getà I mean, underwearà Ehmàö More silence. Hanatarou stopped his act and just resumed staring at his still silent Zanpakuto. It was so strangeà A few days after he had been nominated Seventh seat, Hisagomaru had suddenly decided to stay silent 24/7. He sighed. ôYouÆre stillà Angry with me, Hisagomaru?ö No answer. ôI mean, I know that thereÆs nothing wrong with you. I got you checked by the 12th Division, and youÆre perfectly fineà Soà You donÆt talk anymore because youÆre angry with me, right?ö Nothing. The boy sighed. ôI just wishedà You let me know whyà What is wrong with meà I hate you being silent, Hisagomaruà à Wellà IÆllà IÆll go get a shower.ö

Hanatarou began to get out of his robes while heading for the bathroom, leaving behind the silent sword. Once the room was filled with the noises of the shower, an almost imperceptible voice saidà

If you donÆt do something about it first, thereÆs no sense in telling you.

The mere possibility of Yachiru taking any interest in Hanatarou is....frightening. Theres potential insanity with Zaraki trying to toughen him up down that road.

Ah. So thats it. Hanatarou's zanpakuto is female. After all. Only a female would use that sort of logic.

In the Graphic Novels released here in the US, there's been a story that runs one panel at the beginning of each chapter, detailing the random adventures of Kon and Hanatarou in the SS, regardless of what's happening outside of that. In it, Kon ends up with control of Hanatarou's body, and unleashes Hisagomaru's Shikai on Zaraki, actually cutting him.

Zaraki was... intrigued.

Neither Kon nor Hanatarou were happy with that.

Actually, some men also subscribe to the belief. The idea is that, unless you figure it out for yourself, you won't really believe it, and be able to change. Basically knowledge can come from another, understanding and change must come from ones self.

This, of course, isn't for every piece of info, just some things. Terry Goodkind also used that in his Wizard's First Rule.
