Today I continued to read more of Broken Dreams, but I spent a while playing Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu! There were new chapters for Seerking’s Asylum, Ashes to Flame and Mauling Snarks. A lot of the rest of time was spent rereading the Skip Beat Manga. However –
I did go see Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald tonight! It was very good, though as it is a transitory movie (there are 5 movies overall, last I heard), some (or most) people will not like the ending. I wasn’t a fan of the ending either, but I understood it. I would suggest it, but don’t watch it if you haven’t seen the first one (not much would make sense). As I’m going to be talking about the movie, I’m going to put a spoiler warning here.
So the big one, Queenie. Why did she change sides? The easy answer is that Grindelwald is very persuasive. The more complicated answer is that Queenie was always the most easily swayed of the group, because she is a natural mind reader. She made sure her emotions were the largest of the group because that way they wouldn’t be swayed by others. When Jacob wouldn’t marry her, she spelled him to want to. She fell for him in the first movie because he fell for her and because it was going against what the Ministry wanted.
I think that Grindelwald’s strong mind along with his female lieutenant (didn’t hear her named) persuaded her to go to the meeting. Then with so many people’s thoughts influencing her at the meeting, she went along with Grindelwald.
Credence as a Dumbledore and getting Fawkes. Didn’t see this coming, but maybe he’ll come around and go against Grindelwald. Nagini as a human. I knew about this because it was in previews, but I wonder how she joins Tom. Maybe that will be in a later movie because this would be around the time he would be at Hogwarts (maybe he was in the crowd in Dumbledore’s class and I didn’t recognize him).
Lita dying and her story. Hm, don’t know how she ended up with Theseus, but it may have been a way to not make herself happy after she killed her brother and saving the Scamander brother as penance. The fact that her brother is dead makes me wonder how the Lestrange brothers from the HP movies came about (maybe the dad isn’t dead and he’ll have another kid?)
Nothing more today, see you on the next line!
More Broken Dreams today, along with catching up to current on Skip Beat. There were new chapters for Harry Potter and the Stargate, Relic of the Future, Stand Together and Smile (interlude story), Seerking’s Asylum, Ripples and Heroes Assemble! I also finally finished rereading Queen’s Redemption along with more playing Let’s Go Pikachu.
The only new story (rereading, but having mentioned it yet) is another one from kb0 called ‘Harry Potter: Rogue.’ It’s an after Order story where Harry decides to train himself since Dumbles won’t train him. Remus and Ginny are the only ones who can contact him and thus, yes, it is a Harry/Ginny story. Only read a few chapters, but I really like this one. It can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/3796738/1/Harry-Potter-Rogue.
Not much today, lot’s of Let’s Go.
So more Harry Potter: Rouge today, but I didn’t finish it. More Let’s Go Pikachu as well. I finally got to the city were you can trade from Go and get Meltan in Go and did it! I got 9 Meltans and plan to get more in a week when I can. The new chapters for today were It’s in the Cards and The Unseen Hunt.
I reread one of fg7dragon’s stories, ‘Naruto Chaos God.’ It’s the 3 story in the Naruto Chaos series (though the second one ‘Naruto Chaos Demon’ barely has anything) that started with ‘Naruto Chaos Mage.’ It’s a Naruto and Negima crossover. Basically, the Naruto is the evolution of the Negima fake Mars world where something went wrong and most Negima characters sealed themselves into the 10-tailed beast. Years later, when Kyuubi is sealed in Naruto (first sealing ever), he is able to unseal them in his mindscape and they can help him. It’s really good, though I wish the author would write more for either the 2nd or 3rd story. The link to the first story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9744216/1/Naruto-Chaos-Mage. The second is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9080655/1/Naruto-Chaos-Demon. Finally the third is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11833883/1/Naruto-Chaos-God.
I also started rereading another one of fg7dragon’s (finished, maybe) stories ‘Gamer of the Sword.’ It’s a Gamer and Type Moon universe crossover with a SI (Self Insert) taking over Shirou who has the Gamer ability. He uses this to change everything. The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12974378/1/Gamer-of-the-Sword.
Another short post today. See you when I post tomorrow!
Finished rereading Gamer of the Sword and played more Let’s Go Pikachu (just got my 7th badge). The new chapters today are Mauling Snarks, The Gamer and Bits & Bobs. I also only reread some chapters from Uzumaki Naruko: To the Victor, the Spoils starting from where the reading story is currently. Really not much today.
So even though I’m going to sleep soon (long day tomorrow), I’ll talk about another series, D.N.Angel (that’s how I’ve seen it written). It’s a story about Daisuke Niwa, who loves Risa Harada (younger of twins, older named Riku). When his love confession on his fourteenth birthday to her doesn’t work out, he transforms into Dark Mousy. Dark is a family legacy in Male Niwa’s and is a phantom thief. The only way to make him go away is have his love interest love him back, but is Risa really the one? Both the manga and anime are finished, though the anime finished first and has a different (and better, in my opinion) ending. I really like this one and hope you read it!
See everyone on Thursday!
