what's a fanlisting?

According to tfl.org, "A fanlisting is simply an online list of fans of a subject, such as a TV show, actor, or musician, that is created by an individual and open for fans from around the world to join. There are no costs, and the only requirements to join a fanlisting are your name and country. Fanlistings do not have to be large sites (although some are), they are just a place where you can sign up with other fans."

hinamori momo

Hinamori Momo is a shinigami, or Death God, in Kubo Tite's Bleach, holding the position of vice-captain of the fifth division of Soul Society's Gotei 13. Her zanpakutou is called "Tobiume." Momo grew up in Rukongai (the outskirts of Soul Society) alongside future Captain Hitsugaya Toshirou, and eventually entered the Shinigami Academy, where she was recognized for her talent, notably in demon arts. There she met her future fellow vice-captains, Abari Renji and Kira Izuru, and her future Captain and reason for joining the Gotei 13: Aizen Sousuke. Ultimately, Momo is nearly killed by Aizen when he reveals a plot against Soul Society, explaining that his vice-captain was merely a pawn. He had shaped her into a person that relied on him completely, and when she was no longer needed, he decided to do away with her.

I really liked Momo from her first appearances in the manga. She was kind, fairly down-to-earth, and opposed to senseless fighting (unlike most of the cast! :P), but still a capable fighter. She was also emotional and impulsive, but devoted to fighting for what she believed was right (for example, running back to save her classmates during a Hollow attack). I think she's... normal, in a way? I love that she's kind of a regular girl. But later on, it was her tragic story that made me sympathize with her and find her really interesting. Her devoted and emotional nature proves to be part of her downfall, as Aizen uses it to his advantage to effectively manipulate her: even making her turn her blade against her childhood friend. Then of course, he attempts to kill her, only to have her survive and believe his betrayal was a mistake. Poor girl :(.

"Blossom" was chosen as a name as an obvious reference to her name (Momo = peach) and zanpakutou (Tobiume = flying plum), and also as a reference to her rather fragile emotional state: delicate and susceptible to change, kind of like a flower. That, and I'm horrible at naming things.
