Love Drop

Okuda Raku (奥田らく) of Love Drop did mostly Kurosaki Ichigo x Kuchiki Rukia Bleach doujinshi. However, she also released several Abarai Renji x Rukia doujinshi and some general/all characters dojin. Okuda-san's Bleach books often contained Aizen Sousuke x Hinamori Momo, Ishida Uryuu + Inoue Orihime, and Orihime -> Ichigo, as well. (Oddly, almost none of her books had any BL content, though Okuda-san said that she liked Ishida x Ichigo, Renji x Ichigo, and Byakuya x Renji.) Okuda-san is well-known to Ichigo x Rukia fans because of her beautiful artwork and lovely stories. Her work was published in numerous Bleach doujinshi anthologies, and she even did cover art for some of them.

Note: Most of the covers are prematurely cut off on the right sides. I don't know why my scanner was screwing up, but I didn't notice the problem until after I scanned everything.
