* This is a popular trope in ''Fanfic/TheSnowHasStoppedTheRain''. Instances include:
** Ichigo when his friends had decided to “rescue” him and an arrested Rukia, when he had been in the middle of trying to get her out using legal channels.
** Shirayuki (on herself unusually) when she realizes the ease of which she and Ichigo had been communicating via a PsychicLink should have been impossible and the implications of it are huge.
** Uryu barely resists this when he realizes Ganju had slipped away from the group when they're in hostile territory. He gives up and does it anyway when Ganju shows up screaming and being pursued by a large number of armed Shinigami.
