Today, I had more time and thus read a lot more, mostly Homestuck. I got to page 2378. Almost all of the trolls have been introduced, but they’re kinda really out there. It’s going through their ‘origins’ and many of the trolls are messed up (in the head mostly, but also a lot physically especially from each other). Yeah, might take a break from this one for a little bit.
I’ve been actually rereading the story From Fake Dreams that I’ve mentioned before. I’m able to reread many stories faster because I copy the text of a chapter onto a text to speech app called Voice Dream. It keeps the chapter copy so I can search for it if I want to listen to it again. I know some people don’t like the ‘computerized’ voice, but I have one with a British accent and I like it!
I read new chapters from both Taylor Varga (Yay!) and Mauling Snarks. Other than that I read the three newest chapters of the Korean manga called, “The Gamer”. It’s about a boy named Han Jee-Han who gains the power to treat life like a video game. He can level up, get items, learn skills from books, quests, and many more similar things. This leads him into the Abyss, the underworld of those with magic and other abilities. Watch as he learns to hone his skills (including the dish washing one) and make his own way in the Abyss. It has 239 chapters so far.
Wow no links today. Guess we’ll see about tomorrow.
Today was a lazy day mostly, because it was very rainy. I don’t live on the east coast, but to all those that are (Especially in the Carolinas) stay safe! I mostly reread (listened to) From Fake Dreams, though I did go out and walk a little to hatch some eggs in PoGo to get those regionals (none today, I hatched to ones that I got before the event).
I rewatched the a few of Pokemon shorts called “Pokemon Generations” that animates some of the scenes from the game (including short side stories that you didn’t know). To name some are: Blue’s run through the Pokemon League before you from the Red and Blue games and life throughout the games in the eyes of a Pikachu. Other than that I got a new chapter of An Essence of Silver and Steel and one I haven’t mentioned before, ‘Stand Together and Smile’ by KnightEstoc. It’s a Sword Art Online fanfic that has the main characters Asuna and Kirito (Kazuto) meeting and becoming friends as kids IRL before the main storyline. See how things change (Including Kirito getting a harem). The link to the fic is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12894463/1/Stand-Together-and-Smile.
In absence of more things I’ve read today, I figured I just mention how diverse anime and manga are. I mean you have the sci-fi and magical ones, but I’m just talking about in terms of ones about sports. They have ones for the ‘main’ sports: Football (Soccer to those of us from America. Because we just can’t have the same name for things that the rest of the world does. I mean take the way we tell time for example, Americans call the 24 hour clock ‘Military time’, when to the rest of the world it’s just normal time) represented by “Whistle”, America Football represented by “Eyeshield 21”, Tennis represented by “The Prince of Tennis”, Baseball represented by “Cross Game”, Boxing represented by “Hajime no Ippo”, and volleyball represented by “Haikyu!!” (Keep in mind these are just one example of each, there are more especially Baseball and Football). However there are some for other, more obscure sports: Table Tennis represented by “Ping Pong” (Yes, that’s the name of the manga), Swimming represented by “Free!”, and Badminton by “Smash!” to name a few. Feel free to look these up!
That’s it for today! Thanks for listening to my rant!
Today I also walked some more to hatch regional eggs (And 10km for Celebi quests), but the only regional I hatched was a Tauros. I did finish the first eevee 10km quest and evolved it into a shiny umbreon at night for the next set (just one more 10km!). I reread (listened) to more of From Fake Dreams and am almost finished, just another ten chapters or so to get to where it currently is at 52 chapters.
I finished up Pokemon Generations, but that’s it. I’ll talk about Doctor Who today. For those who don’t know, Doctor Who is a British show that started in the 1960’s about a Time Lord named The Doctor who traveled space and time with his companions. When he dies, he is reincarnated into a different body. The series went on for a few decades and made it through 8 regenerations before it stopped for a while. It was rebooted in the 2000’s and started on the 9th (really 10th) regeneration. I started watching a few years after the reboot, but they’re already on the 13th (really 14th) Doctor, who is now a woman. (The ‘9th’ doctor is called the War Doctor and is only in the movie ‘The Day of the Doctor”). Look it up, but you won’t find all the original episodes because some have been lost to time (lol).
See you tomorrow! See below!
I finished From Fake Dreams and started rereading a fic called ‘Ginny Returns’ by kb0. It’s a Harry Potter story about a future Ginny who only has a paralyzed Hermione left, who goes back in time to save her husband (Harry), family, friends, and the wizarding world. Kbo is a good writer and although not all of their fics are Harry/Ginny (a few are though), I still like most of them. The link to the fic is –https://www.fanfiction.net/s/4740107/1/Ginny-Returns and the link to the author’s page is – https://www.fanfiction.net/u/1251524/kb0.
I did read some new fanfictions today though! The first one is called “Persephone” by sunflowerb. It’s a How to Train Your Dragon Fic. (if you don’t know what it is, look it up. There are two movies currently and a third one coming out soonish). In this one, Hiccup is thought dead by Toothless after Astrid follows him. Then a Dragon Rider shows up and can ‘control’ the raiding dragons (he’s really trying to stop destruction). They give Astrid (now 20) up to him as a bride to make him stop the raids. It’s not a happy fic and deals with abandonment and alcoholism, but it’s a good story all the same. And it’s finished, there might be a sequel later. The link to the fic is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10740714/1/Persephone.
The second story I read is called ‘Origin Story’ by Worldmaker. It’s a crossover with Buffy the Vampire Slayer/DC/Marvel. It has a copy of Xander in Power Girl’s body being made in the Marvel verse (Where things are very wrong) after the Halloween body switching spell. He has to get used to being in a female body with super powers, while on the run for next to nothing by the Marvel heroes & Villains. Check it out at -https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9801437/1/Origin-Story .
For those who don’t know Buffy the Vampire Slayer, it’s about a girl named Buffy who becomes the Slayer (the one who slays demons and vampires) and her friends as they battle vampires and demons while trying to live their lives. I would suggest it, even if it’s a bit old.
Other than that, I’ve started to try The Alchemist Code phone app, but am holding judgment and read the new chapter of Mauling Snarks. I walked again for eggs and km in PoGo and got halfway for the 10km and got a FarFetch’d (which I already had from the event last year. I need a Kangaskhan and a Mr. Mime).
That’s it for the weekend! See you on Thursday!
