    That actually makes sense, it was only visible because it was under moon light too! Any other situation and we would have bumbled right into it! What a nice benefactor!

    I think those are the most important questions. Besides Chastisement, I only think it would be funny.

    Makes sense Nightgaunts can not be seen completely can’t only there shadow is seen and they can’t make any sound and can straight up rip out your soul by tickling you and mostly live in the dreamlands which is a pseudo afterlife for dreamers

    Alright, we've survived this possible shitshow, now let's never do this again. Next time we want to visit a celestial body, we should train some kinda teleportation and use that just to avoid the risk of cosmic horrors tearing at our soul or worse.

    To be fair the Moon Lady did say that the cosmic horror that Weaver experience was a rare event. But it is true that Weaver should put more effort in getting stronger cause the multiverse is fill with many horrors as it is at the moment and it only to get worse for the unprepared.

    Oh sure, actually ingest physical matter originating from their home plane. Surely there’s no possible way that can do horrific things to our mind and soul. In case it wasn’t exceedingly obvious, that was about as close to a Bad End as we’ve ever gotten. We walked away bleeding out from the soul just watching the damn thing, if we had tried talking with it, or god forbid, fighting it, the damage would have been magnitudes more severe.

    The better question to ask is can we eat it? And if so what would happen if we attempt to eat?

    Well, Nightgaunts are intimidating, but I have no point of reference of how they shape up against any kind of hollow. So, less panic and more vague confusion.

    Most of what I've read about them is they can travel through realms easily and they're quiet and stealthy. It's not like they're elder gods, more like eldritch scouts or mounts.

    We can eat anything we put our mind too. You just need to believe.
    This is true. We don't have much context here.

    Are we even able to heal that kind of damage without help from our benefactor? Because I don't think we can. In fact, I think we wouldn't have lived without running to her.

    Nightgaunts capture people, take them to the underworld, and leave them to die. They also have a habit of "tickling" people with their viciously barbed and spiky tail, an act they consider non-aggressive.
    QA looked to be doing something, so we might not have been completely boned. We'd be very hurt though.

    Can we ask about how things are in the wormverse?
    Maybe once the whole Bleach plot is over we can go there so we can GTFO our friends and family of that hell-hole.

    Srly, there are quite a few of post GM Taylor fics and the only 2 deal with even the posiblity of Taytay going back for her people.
    One was an Entity taylor and the other was as YJ xover that its hasnt seen an update for some months, and they only mentionted that as an hipotetical

    I would rather not return to a world as piss-poor as that one. I'm okay with staying in this horrible world set, however I'm also okay with leaving and only returning to bleach after everyone of our companions from that universe can survive there.

    If anything I kinda want Weaver to bust some heads and kick ass if she ever come back to her selection of the multiverse. And especially so for the off chance she can eat some [SHARDS] and things associated with them.

    So uh. Lovecraft crossover confirmed?

    I don’t mind it, but I’m gonna go ahead and assume there is jack and/or shit we could do to anything from that universe until we hit Vasto Lord.

    Except maybe the people cursed by Yig, they’re just scaley scrubs.

    To be fair they aren't consistently depicted. Part of the mistique of Lovecraftian Mythos is the lack of certainty. Humanity cannot even begin to comprehend the shit that goes on out there and all that tripe, anything you believe you know for sure is probably wrong. At the best I've seen them, nothing in canon Bleach stands a chance, maybe barring wonky ability interactions.

    There's a good chance the answer is 'not enough'.

    Countermeasures were deployed and limited success was achieved, the bleeding was halved. But if you pay attention to the final measure, it was to quote Alexandre Dumas ('All human wisdom is contained in these two words - Wait and Hope') and enter energy saving move. In other word, wish very hard for a solution to drop from the sky.

    I've considered it, but the chances are low for meta-reasons. For one, I don't really feel I'll do it justice. For other, my interest for the canon Worm universe took a nosedive with Ward and doens't seem likely to ever recover. One or two characters might end up in the Bleachverse at some point, maybe. But Taylor's return... Right now I see it as maybe something for the potential prologue.

    Lovecraftian creatures do exist, yeah, even if only to illustrate a universe far vaster than shown in canon Bleach. So far your only source claims encounters with them are extremely rare though. Probably nothing you need to worry about for now. I do love Chekhov's guns, so there are more involved possibilities out there but, depending on how you play this story, you might never cross paths with them again.

    Christ on a crutch, I’m still not over that dodge. We came across an Outer Being and managed to walk away with only minor power loss and a crippling phobia of bat things(which, come to think of it, will come in majorly handy when we inevitably cross paths with Ulquiorra). Thank the gods I figured out that it wasn’t sadbat, cause I was on the verge of voting for interaction. Thank everything else we near unanimously decided to fuck training and haul ass moonwards, I don’t want to even imagine how the soul bleed would have exacerbated Training Costs.
