Today was an interesting day as I went through many fanfiction to find one that would keep my attention. I’ve had this problem before, either I have to find something else to do or I find a fanfiction that can keep my attention. This one lead me through several including several whose original stories I haven’t mentioned here yet. I finished reading Heroes Assemble! and then moved onto ‘Skittering Campione’ by Greatazuredragon. It’s a crossover between Worm (Skitter is Taylor’s first cape name) and a series called Campione!. It was a light novel then became an anime that only has one season so far. The main character (Godo Kusanagi) is a normal high school student until on trip he finds himself in a fight between two gods who have become ‘Heretic’ (meaning they rebel against being wherever they normally are and cause destruction to the world). Through a set of unlikely circumstances (Or the most obvious circumstances if you look at how often that happens in stories), Godo defeats one of the Gods with the help of a ‘witch’ and becomes a Campione or God Slayer. This means he gets power from the God(s) he defeats. Look it up, it’s good.
Anywho, in the fanfiction at the end of Worm, Taylor is transported to Campione! universe and is transformed in a campione because of her defeat of the big bad of her universe. Watch as her actions change the Campione! universe for the good, funny and weird. It’s only 14 chapters so far and the link the fanfiction is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12051295/1/Skittering-Campione.
I went through a few one shots after that and only one was interesting, but it was an omake of a conversation in another fanfiction that would only take longer to go through, so I’ll talk about the omake when I read that fanfiction. The next one I actually read was ‘A Growing Affection’ by Xavon Wrentaile. It is a Naruto fanfiction. Like Harry Potter is the top of the Book section of FF.net in number of stories, so is Naruto the top of the Anime section. I’m actually surprised it too me this long to get to a Naruto story. For those of you who don’t know, Naruto is about a young boy who wants to became a ninja and the leader of his village, the Hokage. The only thing wrong with that is that most of the village hates him because he has a great monster (The Kyuubi) sealed in his gut through no fault of his own. Watch or read as this boy goes through hard work, teachers who barely teach him anything, getting hit by teammates, betrayal, hate, anger and many other things to save the world and gain the love and affection of the village that hated him (Yeah like KHR, I have some issues with the way the main character is treated. I mean his godfather doesn’t even come in until after the first few arcs and it’s never even mentioned that he’s his godfather until later when we find out who his parents were in the sequel story set three years after the original story ends.) There’s also now a story about the new generation out too, Boruto.
Moving on the fanfiction is set in the sequel story Naruto Shippuuden and follows an alternate storyline and focuses on Naruto getting together with Hinata (my favorite pairing that’s also canon) and dealing with the issues around him. It’s good and is finished with 170 chapters. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/3916565/1/A-Growing-Affection. I also read a new chapter of Mauling Snarks (it comes out every Friday and Monday).
I started another new story with a new original story, but since this one is already fairly long, I’ll talk about it tomorrow. Which you’ll be able to see right away ^_^
So I’ll start off the story I mentioned in yesterday’s part, ‘Soul Chess’ by draconichero21. This a one of favorites and it is a crossover between Code Geass and Bleach. Bleach, for those who don’t know, is like Naruto as being one of most popular mangas/animes of the past generation (as the original generation of Naruto is finished anyway). It’s about Ichigo Kurosaki a high school student who can see ghosts. He has a run in with a Hollow (Monster spirits who want to eat you) and a Shinigami (‘Good’ spirits who have the power to purify Hollows and send ghosts to the afterlife) named Rukia Kuchiki. He ends up becoming a Shinigami and gets involved in (Wouldn’t you know it) a plot to save the world (because the afterlife is crap and nobles who don’t care about people run it). Other than my personal issues with the governing system of the afterlife (Soul Society), this is a good story. Though it gets convoluted in the last arc.
In the fanfiction, Lelouch from Geass ends up in the Soul Society long before even the flashbacks in Bleach. Watch as his actions change things, for better or worse. I wouldn’t recommend this unless you’ve at least watched Code Geass and possibly a bit of Bleach too. It’s 208 chapters and a teaser for a remake fic with more crossover characters in it to be at sometime in the future. The link to the fanfiction is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6953451/1/Soul-Chess. I only read a few chapters of it for now along with a few Ashes of the Past chapters.
I also reread the fanfiction ‘Pick up the Pieces and Move On’ by the first author I mentioned, Umei no Mai. It’s a sequel to the fic ‘Pick up the Pieces and Take Stock’ and they both deal with the after story of KHR through the lens of Xanxus in dealing with a ‘father’ who can’t see how he wronged Xanxus, a to-be leader who doesn’t know anything and doesn’t want the job and all the mental and physical issues he’s got because of his upbringing and the KHR story. They’re both good stories that are 8 chapters each with a third and final story in the works that Umei no Mai will finish before continuing Black Sky. The link to Take Stock is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12963516/1/Pick-up-the-Pieces-and-Take-Stock and the link to Move On is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13014658/1/Pick-up-the-Pieces-and-Move-On.
I read more than 20 chapters of Growing Affection and a new chapter for the story, ‘Stark Imprint’ by Arthur Hansen which is a crossover story between Worm and Ironman. One of Tony Stark’s suits ends up in the Worm universe and when Taylor finds it (a few years before Worm’s start), it downloads a copy of his brain into hers. She gets his memories and talents while remaining herself and becomes a non-powered cape in the Worm-verse. It’s good and the link the 7 chapter story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12971451/1/Stark-Imprint.
That’s all I read today, so I’ll see you in a few seconds on Sunday.
Today I went to a small birthday dinner for a church friend and learned that her granddchild has written fanfiction and is on FF.net. I haven’t read either of their stories, but their user name is DesertAnubis. There is a Dragon Ball Z fic (that’s been abandoned after 35 chapters) and a new Yu-Gi-Oh! fic that has been finished IRL, but is slowly being posted. The link to their profile is – https://www.fanfiction.net/u/2078100/DesertAnubis.
I read some more Soul Chess and Growing Affection, but other than that I just have a story I started rereading and a new chapter for a story I haven’t mentioned yet. The story is called ‘Broken Dreams’ by ThunderReborn and is a Bleach story where after the Winter War, things are different and Ichigo gains his enemy’s sword and most powerful tool. He is trained by them and his own sword while everyone thinks he’s powerless and ignores him. When he graduates high school he walks away and has several crossovers (starting with High School DxD). It’s not for everyone and remember the phrase “Don’t like, Don’t read”. It’s one I follow. Anywho, the link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11877799/1/Broken-Dreams.
The new chapter is from the fanfiction ‘ Mending the Knots’ by azndrgn (the author who I’m editing for on another story). It’s a RWBY story where Jaune doesn’t get into Beacon and starts a massage business. It’s fun and still has your favorite characters in it. The main reason I didn’t read much else is that I got the app Fate/Grand Order (from the same universe as Fate/Stay Night [though without the rated R stuff]). I got caught up in it, KHUx and PoGo (I finally moved on to the fourth set of the Celebi quests). See you tomorrow when I actually post all this.
So as usual for today, I read the new chapter of Mauling Snarks. I also spent time on Fate/Grand Order and KHUx again. I also reread two stories by SeerKing that are finished or not currently being worked on. They are ‘RWBY – Poison Promise’ and ‘RWBY – Flame of Atonement’. In the first one, Ruby is posioned and it deals with finding who did it and curing her. The second one deals with the aftermath. Poison Promise done at 10 chapter and Flame of Atonement is on hiatus at 4 chapters. The link to Poison Promise is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11733770/1/RWBY-Poison-Promise and the link to Flame of Atonement is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12147659/1/RWBY-Flame-of-Atonement
I read sakurademonalchemist’s newest story (Again not finishing any of their older ones) ‘Elemental Sky’ in which a female Tsuna learn that she is cousins with the Sand Siblings from Naruto (Temari, Kankaro, and Gaara) and goes to visit them (at a time before the chunin exams). The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13036342/1/Elemental-Sky.
I also started rereading the story ‘Becoming a Man Among Men’ by Dragon6. It is based on the Ranma 1/2 story which is about Ranma, a high school aged martial artist who accidentally falls into a cursed pool that causes him to become an aquatransexual (which means he turns into a girl when hit by cold water and back to a boy when hit by hot water). He is then forced to agree to marry one of three daughters of his (abusive, thieving, lying, habitually agreeing to marriage contracts for his son for silly things) father’s friend. Ranma has to deal with multiple fiancees, men who are after said fiancees and people who blame him for what his father did (I swear, I have not seen a story with so many character with daddy issues and some mommy issues). Becoming a Man Among Men has Ranma reading his father’s journal after becoming an aquatransexual and learns of all of his father’s misdeeds and his planning to marry him to his friend’s daughter. He then decides to make his own martial arts school and not do anything his father wants. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6492923/1/Becoming-a-Man-Among-Men.
