As requested by anon. :)
We don’t quite know what Aizen’s ultimate goal is, but we have some idea. He wants to reach the Royal Realm and take down the Soul King. Also he needed the hogyoku for some reason and he likes to cross the boundaries between soul reaper and hollow. But what if Aizen decided to accomplish all those goals in a nice way? How might he go about that? Here are some ideas!
1. Gets the hogyoku from Rukia without hurting her
Instead of trying to get Rukia executed to get the hogyoku, Aizen just uses the other method from the get-go. He just walks up to Rukia, reaches inside her with tree trunk hands, and grabs the hogyoku. No elaborate plan necessary!
Aizen: Kuchiki, close your eyes. I want to show you a magic trick.
Rukia: Um, okay, but only because those glasses make you look trustworthy.
Aizen: Well that was simple.
2. Creates the espada but doesn’t do anything with them
If Aizen wanted to push the boundaries between hollow and shinigami, he could just skip the visored (who didn’t like being experimented on) and go straight to the espada (who seemed mostly okay with their cool new powers). And then just let them be, rather than conquering them and using them as his army of evil. Since (let’s face it) the espada didn’t do much for Aizen’s plan overall.
Aizen: And now you are a bat with a sword!
Aizen: I have attached a tracking device to your ear.
Aizen: Be free!
3. Jaywalks while saying nasty things about Central-46
Which I assume is enough to get thrown into prison but not exiled. This assumes, of course, that prison is exactly where Aizen wants to be (for some reason).
Aizen: Wow. Who knew jaywalking had a 20,000 year sentence?
4. Works really hard and gets promoted to Royal Guard
Or Aizen could just skip all of that, stay in Soul Society, and work hard to be promoted to the Royal Guard. I mean, the main thing you have to do is invent something cool, right? Aizen should be able to do that in his sleep!
Aizen: I have created a new life form!
Aizen: Mostly it just sits in your hand and goes ‘fweep.’
New life form: Fweep!
5. Uses his shikai to pretend to work really hard and get promoted.
Of course, Aizen wouldn’t even have to invent anything. He could just use his shikai to pretend to have invented something. Which is a little dickish, I guess, but at least it doesn’t involve stabbing Hinamori.
Aizen: Before I show you all my invention, I want you to just look at how cool my sword looks in this light.
Aizen: Okay now I’m ready to show you my invention.
6. Makes friends with Ichigo, waits for Quincy, and gets injured
If Aizen is really as good at predicting the future as he claims, then he could have just cozied up to Ichigo and waited for the Quincy. After all, people who are Ichigo’s friends have a high likelihood of getting sent to the Royal Realm for healing. If Aizen had just waited, he could have been in that hot spring with Byakuya, Renji, and Rukia!
Aizen: But little do you know, these wound are FAKE!
Sentoki: Well I kinda know now…
7. Joins the Quincy
Or Aizen could just wait for the Quincy to show up and straight-up join them. He’s powerful. The Quincy probably would have said yes.
Yhwach: Cool. You can be Quincy ‘A’.
8. Starts a movement
Aizen could also just share with everyone his intel about the Soul King and see if they just agree to help him of their own accord.
Aizen: And for all of those reasons and more, the Soul King is bad news! We must take him down!
Soi Fon: [shrugs]
Kyoraku: He’s probably cool on the inside.
9. Dyes his hair orange
Just in case it makes the Soul King fall in love with him and invite him to the Royal Realm.
Aizen: I also love Shakespeare and chocolate, if that makes a difference.
10. Asks Ichigo for help
Or Aizen could just go to Ichigo and say words to the effect of, “Hey, do you mind if I help you develop your full potential so that you can take down an evil king who is going to doom us all?”
Aizen: No wonder Urahara likes this kid.

Now THIS is a bold lingerie ad.
When the star model for Forever Yours Lingerie was diagnosed with cancer, the brand decided to stick with her.
Tom Megginson at The Ethical Admanapproves:
“So, while American Eagle is getting virtual hugs and high fives for its commitment to not photoshopping its typical-looking models, elsewhere there are brands and models who are willing to show us what it really takes to do something about the fashion industry’s body image problem.”
All I can do is
ETA: no, wait, hold up, stop the presses. There’s another thing I can do and that’s shop their store. You probably can too, because CHECK OUT THEIR BRA MATRIX
Reblogging because look at that size range!!!! And also because representation is important.
HELL YES and they’re CANADIAN. *bookmarks for later purchases*
