Today, I looked it up and found that this blog has been going for over a month (the 16th was when it was a month). Yay! I read some more of Ginny Returns, read new chapters for Elemental Sky (by sakurademonalchemist for those who don’t remember) and Seerking’s Asylum for Plot Bunnies that Won’t Stop Bugging Me and started rereading Stand Together and Smile. I also read some more of Homestuck and got to page 2793. That story just keeps getting weirder; I suspect it will get worse since it’s only somewhat over a quarter done.
Moving on, I read a few new stories (fairly short ones). The first one was ‘Naruto: Rise of the Emperor Revised’ by Snafu the Great. It’s based on one of the fairly common storylines from Naruto fanfiction: Naruto gets banished after the Sasuke Retrevial Mission (whether he’s successful or not) and either goes alone or with someone/somepeople to the ‘West’ which the elemental nations stay away from because they are always at war. Naruto eventually becomes Emperor (everything before this usually happens before the story) and Konoha eventually comes to him for help. How things are handled are different per writer. This is a Hinata/Naruto version. Here is a link to the story – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7017359/1/Naruto-Rise-of-the-Emperor-Revised.
The second one is unfinished and I don’t know if it will be finished. It’s called ‘Ranma ½: Consequences’ by the same author. It’s about the consequences of things going wrong after the story. I didn’t like this one much because: it hasn’t been updated since 2015, is only 4 chapters so far and I don’t think its well written. It’s a ‘bashing’ fic (meaning bad things about certain characters are aired frequently) for the Tendo Family, Genma and most of the other characters. Maybe if it was continued, it would have been good. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11055080/1/Ranma-Consequences.
The last two are from the author White Squirrel. The first ‘Justice, Justice Shall You Pursue’ is a Harry Potter fic that has the Goblins arresting the Dursleys in the fifth year. The Dursleys call for the Lord High Chancellor of Britian to represent him and it leads to muggle government having more to do with events in the wizarding world. I quite like it even though it’s only 6 chapters. The link to the fic is – and the link to the author’s page is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11961978/1/Justice-Justice-Shall-You-Pursue.
The last new story is I think finished, but it has a ending that allow the reader to fill in the blanks. It’s called ‘Petrification Proliferation’ and is another Harry Potter fic. It’s about what would happen if there was a procedure in the wizarding world for if a basilisk is found. It is enacted as soon as Harry tells Dumbledore and the Weasleys about it. Here is the link to the story – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11265467/1/Petrification-Proliferation.
I also walk some more, but only got a FarFetch’d. Though I did finally reach the second 10km I need for the Celebi quest … now I need to spin stops for 7 days before I can advance, yay! (that was sarcasm, in case you didn’t know). That’s it for today, see you all on the flip side!
Not much new today and it was rainy, so I didn’t do any walking today :(. There were new chapters for Taylor Varga and Reincarnation Roulette. I also reached page 3975 on Homestuck today. That may seem like a large jump, but there were a lot of short pages. Also, shit is going down, people and trolls are dying and there’s going to be a world reset coming up. Yeah, and we’re only almost halfway done. (side note, if you have trouble keeping up with multiple characters & or timelines, this is not the story for you, Trust Me). On another note, I read a chapter or two of Pick up the Pieces (and Take Stock). I mentioned it a while ago, because I was reading its sequel. I like it a lot because it’s about a non-main (but important) character dealing with the shit the main character (and others) did in the aftermath of the story.
Seerking’s new updated story this week is called ‘Pain and Hatred: A Stray Devil’s Tale’ and is a Highschool DxD story. It’s about a powerful stray (meaning they betrayed the devil who turned them into one from whatever their original species was) devil who needs Issei’s gear for something. This person is seen as a bad person, but not all is as it seems. You need to know quite a bit about the original story to really understand what is going on. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10973658/1/Pain-and-Hatred-A-Stray-Devil-s-Tale.
I’ll take this time to talk about the Gundam series. There are several Gundam continuities, but the first series was called “Mobile Suit Gundam”. Gundams are ‘mobile suits’ (which are a large human shaped robot used in battle) made out of Gundanium. They are typically used as the turning point in a war of some kind (quite often between space colonies and Earth). The previously mentioned series has many sequels in its continuity the Universal Century. There are a few other continuities, but the ones to watch are Gundam 00, Gundam SEED, G Gundam, Gundam Wing and the newest (but one of the best) Gundam: Iron Blooded Orphans. It may seem like a lot, but they’re worth watching. Also, there are a few really good Gundam video games that crossover between the continuities.
Nothing else for today, on the way to tomorrow!
It was rainy again today (though more so), so again no more walking <_>. I’m now up to chapter 4463 of Homestuck (finally over the middle mark). Yeah, so now we’re being introduced to some new old characters (I’m not even gonna try and explain this one. Read if you really want to know). Read some more from Pick up the Pieces (and Take Stock), but what I was really excited about was that From Fake Dreams got a new chapter! I was ecstatic that one came out (especially so soon after I reread it). The trial is almost over and the next thing is lurking in the background.
Other than I’m rereading a story called ‘No Need for Harry’ by Pheonix Dawn. I’m waiting (without much hope) for them to continue another story that I’ll talk about later. This one is a Harry Potter and Tenchi Muyo crossover. Tenchi Muyo is an anime about the character who it’s named after and his adventures with the females and family that he discovers (that are from outer space). In the story, Harry uses a power in the graveyard that only Tenchi could use. The characters from TM discover this and go and get him from his relatives. Que massive changes. It’s fun and worth the read. The link to the story is here -https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5247028/1/No-Need-for-Harry .
The new story I started reading is called, ‘The Accidental Animagus’ by White Squirrel. It uses a common fanfiction tropes of Harry turning into a cat and escaping the Dursleys, along with the Granger’s adopting him. Haven’t gotten far into the story, but at least Dumbledore doesn’t seem like a bad guy in this one (and only slightly misguided). The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9863146/1/The-Accidental-Animagus.
Hope people have enjoyed this month of writing! See you on Monday and maybe it won’t rain that much and I can walk again!
