Yeah, I'm the same. But yeah, I've been going back and looking over what I wrote a year ago. Some of its GREAT and some of it is really off-key. That said, reading it with a fresh perspective gives me a better idea of how to go about writing the story now if I do end up writing it.
Like I said, I'd only be using a small number of characters from Bleach. I'm pretty much tired of the series as a whole at this point, but the mini-arc they're doing right now is actually pretty good. That said, I do really like a lot of what I wrote last year when it was a KH/MLP crossover. I'll send you a PM on the story in a minute!
Yeah, I kinda gave up on it too, but I like to approach the Keyblades/Keyblade Wielders with a more mystic vibe in my stories. They might not be as rare as initially made out to be, but I like to portray them as an ancient and mysterious type of weaponry. While the whole Masters picking their apprentices thing took away from it, I still like to emphasize the notion that Keyblades choose their wielders.
Try it if you can!
They're usually pretty fun, but it depends on whether or not the band you like is actually talented and can play their studio material live or if they just use AutoTune and other stuff to sound good on their albums.
