Quest Week (and I’m on Time!)

Hello everyone!  I’m on time today, so yay!  More Taylor Varga and From Fake Dreams this week.  Another one full of work, including a ‘half’ day today.  With the Chicago Go Fest happening, shiny Pokémon are more prevalent and Horsea and Abra (maybe Clefairy) are now shiny.  The new chapters this week are: Seerking’s Asylum (Mon & Thurs), Mauling Snarks (Mon & Fri), Service with a Smile, Worm – Waterworks, Game On! 3 1, Hybrid Hive: Eat Shard?, Heroes Assemble!, Red String, Short Story Drabbles, Demon Skylark, Titanfall, Archer, Ginny’s Plan, Are You Afraid of the Dark? & Darth Vader: Hero of Naboo.

There’s not much this week, so I’ll just get to the Myrddin de Celestis quest, Chapter 51 was Rose Potter and the Mirror of Fate.  It was a three-chapter Harry Potter story where Rose Potter is Harry’s hidden twin sister.  They run into each other on their birthday before first year at Diagon Alley.  It only really covers them shopping and going to the Weasley’s house.  It’s okay, but short.

Chapter 52 is Juniper Rose Potter is a Prankster.  It’s a two-chapter story where Fem. Harry has both her parents and is heading to Hogwarts.  On the train she meets Ginny and they vow themselves to each other.  It doesn’t go much past a different sorting hat song.

Chapter 53 is King of Bandit.  It’s the longest story so far (I know a longer one later as I looked ahead) at 28 chapters originally.  It’s a Harry Potter, Breathe of Fire and Dragon Ball Z crossover (though I don’t really know how DBZ fits in).  Harry’s parents live, but his twin is thought to be the girl-who-lived.  Harry is ignored and runs away at a young age.  He meets the King of Bandit and is trained by him.  He comes back around 6th year for a stealing job and becomes the Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher (but very different).  He gets together with Luna, Ginny and an Original Character and sets his sister and Hermione up with OCs.  It’s good, I’ve read it before and I’m sad to see it in here.

Chapter 54 is Hunters Guild and is a sort of reworked version of the previous story.  It was six-chapters and is okay.  Harry is taken by the ‘Hunters Guild’ when it’s learned he’s not wanted and is trained by them.  After several people from the guild give up on protecting his sister because of idiots around them, Harry’s given the job.  Essentially the same pairings I assume.

Chapter 55 is Order of the Covenant.  It was a Harry Potter one-shot where the Potter triplets are split up to protect them and meet up on their birthday before Hogwarts.  The ‘Girl-Who-Lived’ was not supposed to go to the Dursleys, but Dumbles interfered.  Can’t tell how good it is because it’s only a chapter.

Chapter 56 is Demonic Wars.  It was a Cardcaptor Sakura and Sailor Moon (though it’s not shown) one-shot.  In the second series, Sakura is attacked by a demon after she turns Watery.  This leads her to liking Tomoyo(?) and running away to protect her family.  Like I said, no Sailor Moon yet.

Chapter 57 is Fade into the Shadows.  It was an eleven-chapter Twilight story.  Before Bella goes to Forks she learns she’s a reincarnated ninja and retrains herself.  Same basic plot except that Edward and Alice switch places (yes that means he’s with Jasper, get over it).  Things are different, but you’ll have to read to find out.

Chapter 58 is Uncharted Void.  It was a five-chapter Harry Potter and Skulduggery Pleasant crossover (though once again, no Skulduggery Pleasant in it as far as I know).  When Harry goes down the pipe to save Ginny in CoS, he ends up far deeper than he expected.  He fights ancient creatures and learns things before he fights Tom.  Skips most of third year and is changing the timeturner incident like the CoS.

Chapter 59 is Fallen Star. It was a two-chapter Twilight story.  It’s a stupid little one where after Edward dumps her she gets powers (from a meteorite?) and ends up gathering girls to have sex with and fight evil and stupidity (I think).  Yeah, don’t really like this one.

Chapter 60 is Fairytail World Tour.  It’s was Harry Potter and Fairy Tale(?) one-shot.  While at the DoM in Year 5 Harry ends up in the world of Fairy Tales, but things are very different.  Can he fix things, who knows, it’s only a chapter.

That’s it for today, thanks for reading and hope you have a great week.  May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

Lot of Updated Chapters Week (along with some Shield Hero and the Quest)

Hello my readers!  It’s been a normal week for me, but that’s not what you want to hear.  I’ve spent some time reading through The Rising of a Shield Hero web novel, but I haven’t finished it yet.  I watched the newest episode of the anime and it’s very different, I mean the spear hero honestly seemed to believe the shield hero was framed.  That doesn’t happen until much later in the web novel at least (no idea about the light novel).  Anyway, listened to more Death March and evolved some new Pokémon on PoGo (still have a few to evolve, but that will take more time catching (if I can find them), walking or rare candies.

Anyway, the new chapters this week are: Relic of the Future, An Essence of Silver and Steel (one chapter and an info chap), How Eating a Strange Fruit Gave My My Quirk, History Strongest Disciple Again?, Jaune Ryu-Long, The Dragon Contractor, Mending the Knots, The Unseen Hunt, Stories of Fate, Demon Skylark (Sun, Mon & Tues), Famgilia Drabbles, Under the Sea, Black Sky (Mon, Tues, Wed, Thurs, Fri), Spirit Fire, Mauling Snarks (Mon & Fri), Service with a Smile, Devil Ninja, Ginny’s Plan, Son of Holmes, Darth Vader: Hero of Naboo, Swordsaint, Heroes Assemble!, Hybrid Hive: Eat Shard?, The Goblet of Fire’s Trap, Go Away I’m Watching Porn, Seerking’s Asylum, Titanfall, Ranma: Happenstance Gone Right, Marvel’s Maelstrom & Taylor Varga. (A lot this week, right?)

I started reading megamatt09’s crack fic (meaning crazy/making fun of things fanfiction) Deadpool’s New Job.  It’s a silly fic set in the Harry Potter universe where Deadpool ends up as Filch’s assistant before Harry’s first year.  Things go very differently … I’ve only convinced myself to read a few chapters, but it’s mostly nonsense.

I also started reading a fic I refound called RWBY: Destiny of Remnant by UGX7.  It’s an RWBY fic in reaction to the end of Vol. 3 so there’s not much elements of the volumes past it in it (at least yet).  Jaune, Nora, Ren and Ruby are going after Cinder in Mistral, but they meet a mysterious man a little before they get there looking for his sister.  With his help they find her, but is there more to him than what there seems (yes).  Also, what really happened to a certain character?

I read (what’s out) of Playing our Roles by The Grim Blade.  It’s an RWBY and The Gamer crossover where someone from our world ends up in the body of (younger) Roman Torchwick.  He decides to follow the path to become a great thief, but he has to prove himself and find his future partner.  With his Gamer abilities, will he be able to do it?

Moving on the Myrddin de Celestis quest, Chapter 31 is Avoiding Fate.  It was a two-chapter Naruto fic.  In it, Naruto wakes up in the past after his fight with Sasuke in the Valley of the End and discovered he dreamed it all.  However, his dream is proven right when he’s able to escape from an attack based on its knowledge.  He escapes and is adopted by Tenten’s dad.  Not much here, but it’s not bad.

Chapter 32 is Bridge to the EvoNet.  It’s a Harry Potter and Stargate crossover.  It was another two-chapter fic.  The first is a long-winded connection between the Stargate past and Harry Potter past.  The second is about an ignored Harry (what else?) about to start his schooling.  Could be okay, but not enough here to say.

Chapter 33 is Fallen Heaven.  It was a one-chapter Twilight fic.  Bella is bitten by James, but becomes a Vampire Creator (yeah, cliché much).  She gets together with Alice … that is all.

Chapter 34 is Carbon Blades.  It was a four-chapter Harry Potter, Avengers and MCU crossover.  Fem-Harry ends up married to X23 (Wolverne’s ‘daughter’) in Vegas.  They spend way too much time recapping their lives and are then drafted into the Avenger (pre-Avengers).  The last chapter is leading up to the first Avengers movie.

Chapter 35 is Collision Course.  It was a three-chapter Harry Potter and Twilight crossover.  It has Fem-Harry learning that Bella and her mom are cousins and going to live with them after fifth year.  When Bella’s mom dies, they go to Forks and clash with the Cullens.  Looks like the cannon pairing of Bella/Edward is there, but Fem-Harry is set up with Alice (though Ginny is also her girlfriend, but not really in the story, yet).

Chapter 36 is Deal to be Reaping.  It was a single-chapter Harry Potter fic.  In it, Fem-Harry dies to protect like in book 7 but learns it’s her seventh death.  He says he’ll send her back with her memories and that she has soul-mates, all female.  It’s okay, but only one chapter.

Chapter 37 is Distorted Time.  It was a single-chapter Harry Potter and Doctor Who crossover.  Harry is The Doctor’s son and Jenny (from The Doctor’s Daughter) and Susan (from the original seasons) come to him to have him fix the TARDIS they have.  Could be good, but like I said, its only one chapter.

Chapter 38 is Flip.  It was a two-chapter Harry Potter fic.  In it Harry finds a weird coin and decides to make all of his choices based on the flip of the coin.  It’s not bad, just, like I’ve said, not long enough to really see how it would go.

Chapter 39 is Lunar Eclipse.  It was a two-chapter Twilight fic.  Bella is ill around the ‘were’-wolves and when Jacob attacks her, is transformed into a Siren.  She eats girl flesh, in both ways, and yeah, not a really big fan of this one.

Chapter 40 is Seven Dark Emperors.  It was a nine-chapter Harry Potter fic.  Voldemort goes to awaken the Seven Dark Emperors in the hopes they’ll help him take over the world.  However, the first one rejects him and goes to train Harry.  It’s interesting and a Harry/Ginny Fic.  Even Luna gets someone (the emperor).

Chapter 41 is 7 Dark Emperors.  It’s a carbon copy of the first but is a crossover with Skulduggery Pleasant Series.  It’s only three chapters, but the emperor plans to set Harry up with Valkyrie (along with Ginny, later).

That’s it for this week, hope everyone has a great coming week.  Don’t forget next Saturday is the Slakoth PoGo community day!  As always, May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

Anime Week (and the New Quest Continues)

Hey peoples!  It’s once again time for Matt’s ramblings!  It’s been a pretty boring week, but at least my hours are back up again.  Yay!  I’ve mostly been rereading (more like listening) to Death March web novel.  The new chapters this week are: Relic of the Future, Less Than Zero, An Essence of Silver and Steel, Mauling Snarks (Sat, Mon & Fri), The Unseen Hunt, The Rising of the Shield Heroine, Celestial Worm, Seerking’s Asylum, Ginny’s Plan, Darth Vader: Hero of Naboo, Naruto: The Game of Life, Titanfall and Taylor Varga (Omake).

I participated in the Torchic Community Day for PoGo even though I wasn’t feeling the greatest, but I still got seven shinies!  It’s raid week and tomorrow there’ll be three hours where Lapras will be available as a raid boss continually and it has a shiny chance!  I watched the new anime The Rising of the Shield Hero and was honestly not that impressed (especially with the last few episodes).  I’ve read the chapters that depict that battle and they drew out it, a lot.  Though I have to say I’m looking for to the next episode where some characters get their comeuppance (read the princess and the King)!

I also watched what’s out for the anime Wise Man’s Grandson.  It’s another transported to another world anime based off a light novel.  It has a man get reborn into a new world when he dies and is taught magic by his adopted grandfather (who is very famous, but never tells the main character).   He’s very powerful by the time he becomes 15, but he’s never taught anything about the common sense of the world.  Watch as he goes to Magic Academy and changes the world!

Finally (for this part) I watched the first season of Overlord (another anime from a light novel based on a transported person).  This one has a gamer whose favorite game is shutting down.  He’s the last of his guild around and decides to stay online until the server is shut down.  He changes a line in an NPC, saying that she’s in love with him.  When the server is shut down, he and the base are transported to a new world.  The NPC’s come to life and he is stuck as a Lich.  He investigates the world and plans to spread the name of his guild Aniz Ooal Gown so if others of his guild are there, they’ll find him.  There are now three seasons and 13 light novels out now.

I’ll do the new fanfics before the quest stories.  The author of Mauling Snarks (CmptrWz) has a new story, Hybrid Hive: Eat Shard?  It’s a Worm and Lyrical Nanoha crossover.  A broken Unison device from Belka finds Taylor triggering and finding her a good match (magically) ‘eats’ the Shard.  It’s interesting even though there are only three chapters so far.

Next, I read Overlord – Lich and Vampire by Seerking (because I was watching the anime).  It’s the same, except another guild member logs on not long before the server shuts down and is also transported with everyone.  Watch as she changes things (though not much since it’s only five chapters and hasn’t been updated since 2017).

Then, sakurademonalchemist came out with a new story (though I know it from a compliation fic), Demon Skylark.  It’s a KHR and Naruto crossover where Kyouya is reborn (lol) into Naruto Uzumaki.  He hates Konoha because it’s full of fake carnavores and he runs away to Suna.  There he meets Fem Gaara (Gaia) and they become close.  Only one chapter so far.

Onto the quest with Myrddin de Celestis, Chapter 20 is Ruby’s Fate.  It was a two-chapter RWBY and Harry Potter crossover.  Fem. Harry leaves her universe and ends up in the RWBY one.  There’s not much here, but she ends up helping them during the end of season 2.

Chapter 21 is Hidden Paths.  It was an eight-chapter Harry Potter story where after Dumbledore dies, Harry discovers that Dumbles sealed away much of his potential.  It starts coming back to him in segments.  He and Ginny train to put an end to the war.  Then Dumbles returns.  It’s okay but needs some editing.  Chapter 22 (Impossible Awakening) is a different version of the first chapter (it’s better, but darker).

Chapter 23 is GHOST.  It was a seven-chapter Harry Potter and Danny Phantom crossover.  Danny Phantom is a really great cartoon that ended too abruptly.  It’s about Danny Fenton, whose parents are ghost hunters.  They build a ghost portal, but it doesn’t work.  Danny accidentally fixes it, but becomes half ghost.  He uses his ghost form to fight and capture the ghosts.  As I said, they ended things really fast.  I wish they had continued it.

Harry almost dies saving a kid and awakens his ghost side.  He uses it to reveal the dark side of Hogwarts.  Along with finding a painting with two more founders.  It’s an okay one, but not the greatest.  Chapter 24 (Spirit of the Phantasm) is the same, but different and was started after this one.  It focuses on going to the Greengrass house first.

Chapter 25 is Time Will Tell.  It was a Harry Potter story with five chapters.  In it, Harry and Ginny have lived to a future where the war is lost.  They use an artifact to go back in time but end up in their baby bodies.  Not much, but it’s not bad.

Chapter 26 is Shifters.  I’ve read this one a while back and it was fun.  It was a twelve-chapter Harry Potter and Negima crossover.  It has Harry discovering he is a shifter after second year and can change into anyone he touches.  He fakes his death and makes a new identity (Eva from Negima) to give Ginny a friend.  They bring changes to Hogwarts.  Chapter 27 (TransShift) is a Christmas 5th year version where he doesn’t fake his death.  It’s three chapters, but no Negima crossover.

Chapter 28 is Copykitten.  It was a two-chapter Harry Potter and Naruto crossover.  It has Fem. Harry being hidden as a male from everyone (including herself).  She has mystical eyes that allow her to copy everything she sees, including spells.  Doesn’t get much past her going into the Leaky Cauldron.

Chapter 29 is Balance in the Power of Gaia.  It was a three-chapter Harry Potter story where Harry is under a spell that causes people/creatures to fall in love with him.  He rebels and ends up at the Creeveys.  It’s kinda meh in my opinon.

The last one I’ll talk about is Chapter 30, Avenge the Lost.  It was a three-chapter Harry Potter, MCU and Avengers crossover.  Harry is the brother of the Boy-Who-Lived and when Death Eaters ‘kill’ his youngest sister (she is brought back but doesn’t have control of her magic) he claims he’ll have vengeance and runs away.  He meets Black Widow and they have a brief fling.  Years later, he returns and starts taking out DEs.  It ends with Fury sending Black Widow after Harry for the Avenger Initiative.

That’s it for today.  I hope everyone has a great week and I’ll see you next week.  May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

A Movie Week (and Another New Quest?)

Hello readers! I’m actually posting on Friday (gasp), I know it’s a shock.  It was an uneventful week, but things did happen that I’ll talk about later.  First though, there has been an update for PoGo that include several new Gen 4 Pokémon in the wild and 3 new lure modules that can help evolve into Magnazone, Glacion, Leafion and Probopass.  I’ve only done the first and last, but I’ll do the others tomorrow or most likely during the community day for Torchic on Sunday.

I read more of Ascension Book One: Bloodline (almost finished) and reread Issei – The Gaming Gear, Naruto: The Game of Life and some of Death March and Harry Potter and the Stargate.  The new chapters this week were – SAO: The Eroge, The Unseen Hunt, Master Potter of Kamar-Taj, Seerking’s Asylum (Mon & Fri), Mauling Snarks (Mon & Fri), Service with a Smile, Eighteen Years a Prodigy, Uzamaki Naruko: To the Victor, the Spoils V2, Heroes Assemble!, Ginny’s Plan, Titanfall, Kingdom Drabbles, Famiglia Drabbles, Short Story Drabbles (Thurs & Fri), Supernatural Drabbles & Taylor Varga.

I’ll be talking about Detective Pikachu and the Saga of Tanya the Evil movie so it’s time for a

*Spoiler Warning!*

Okay, so Detective Pikachu was amusing and cute and I enjoyed it a lot.  I had wondered, even from just the previews, if Pikachu was really the dad.  Thus, I was not surprised it was the case.  I was interested in the fact the Mewtwo was the one from the first Pokémon movie (mentions of it being created in the Kanto region 20 years ago, and wouldn’t you know it, it’s been 20 years since the first movie) and wondered what happened with Ash in that world.

Moving on, I was also not surprised that the invalid father, not the son, was the culprit.  Yeah, that plot twist wasn’t very twisty.  What was, was that he wanted to take over Mewtwo’s body and put everyone in their Pokémon’s bodies.  I mean really, I’m fairly sure only he benefited from that.  What was really cool was the Ditto that could turn into humans.  I mean, it was shown in Sun and Moon that they could do that, but wow!

The rest was fine, but not great.  Oh, I’m not sure if I mentioned it, but the actual Pokémon movie this year is a remake of the first one, Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution.  Not sure what they’re going to change, but could be interesting.

Onto the Saga of Tanya the Evil movie, it was interesting.  It covers what happens in books 3 & 4, but changes where some of the interactions take place and advances some of the character’s story arc (I mean with Mary Sue [really, that’s such a stupid name]).  I haven’t read book 5 (the last one out in the US and I can’t find translations for the other 5), but Tanya hasn’t met her again bookwise after a brief encounter during her days testing things near the England equivalant.  However, in the movie, Mary and her unit are in Moscow when Tanya and her battalion attacked it.  Mary encounters Tanya and see her father’s gun.  She asks God (Being X) for help and has his blessing on her device throughout the movie.  They encounter each other again when Tanya is defending her new base and Mary Sue almost kills her, but Tanya wounds her and Mary is rescued.

It otherwise follows the book faithfully including, amusingly or disgustingly, the creepy guy from the Russian equivalent who wants (sexually) Tanya (who I remind you is only like 11 or 12).  The movie ends with Tanya and crew getting two months in the rear testing before (as always) Tanya’s good work gets her more subordinates and back to the front lines.

Also, I’ll talk about a fic by rayrae118 here because it definitely has spoilers.  Don’t You Cry No More is an Avengers: Endgame fic where Cap goes back and returns the stones, with a twist.  This Cap has made up with Iron Man and spent time with him and his family.  When he returns the Soul stone last, he is given the option of giving up his life for Tony’s, which he does.  It’s a sad One-shot, but worth reading.

*End Spoiler Warning!*

Following that I got an update for Price of Blood by ack1308 and realized I haven’t talked about it yet.  It’s a Worm fic where after the locker incident and before the start of the story, Taylor is attacked by boys sent by Sophia.  Before she’s knocked out, she finally gives the command to attack to her bugs and they don’t stop until she wakes up.  Many people die and the PRT take Taylor in.  Coil learns of Sophia’s imminent arrest; he convinces her the PRT is using her in an undercover operation and has her join the Undersiders.  It’s interesting, but a very sad fic.

I also started reading The Mythical Codex to the Multiverse by (currently, I swear, this author has changed their name so many times) Myrddin de Celestis.  It’s a compliation fic, but currently the author has been turning all of their older fics that they’re not working on into a single chapter and sticking them one by one in this one. [update, I even found that I’ve already made a page for them under Myrddin le Faye.  The one fic, Mythical Night, will be added to the new page for them and the old page deleted.]

Of the original compliation fics, there were crossovers with Infamous (the Game about a man who’s given electrical powers), Battle Girls: Time Paradox (A young boy from our time ends up in an alternate past where there are only girls and he helps Nobunaga Oda) and A Certain Scientific Railgun (A Certain Magical Index side story focusing on Railgun).  I’ll probably been working through them all of the coming week, so I’ll probably focus on each of such ‘chapters’ as their own fic (as they once were) and talk about them next time.  Lol, it’ll be my ‘new’ quest!

The first one is starts at chapter 18 and is called Thunderbird of Ilvermorny and was a single chapter fic.  It’s a HP fic sometime after the fall of Voldemort and Dahlia Evans goes to Ilvermorny in America.  Doesn’t say much about who she is as it really only introduces the character.  Hadn’t read this one before.

The other, and last one I’ll talk about today, was Star Class, a Harry Potter and Lyrical Nanoha crossover.  It was a seven-chapter fic (that I had read before) where Harry and Ginny break free of their shackles (but not their multiple oblivations) and plan to die to in the Department of Mysteries.  They end up far in the future and join an academy that trains to stop an invasion.  They only briefly meet Fate and Nanoha, but it’s like in the six or seventh ‘chapter.’

That’s it for this week.  I hope everyone has a great week and I’ll see you next Friday.  May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

Finishing the After-quest and a Black Sky Week (With a New Side Story)

Hello readers! It’s once again time for a post! You read correctly I finished the last of the compilation fics and there are no more stories or chapters from sakurademonalchemist that I haven’t read! I mostly read more Desperately Seeking Ranma and Ashes of the Past (I’m finally getting back to rereading it to catch up). The new chapters this week were: Relic of the Future, Another Solider Reporting (Sat, Mon, Tues x2, Wed x2, Thurs), The Unseen Hunt, Black Sky (Mon, Tues, Wed, Thurs & Fri), Mauling Snarks (Mon & Fri), Corpse Cleaner (Mon, Tues, Wed, Thurs, Fri), Dawn of Magic (Mon, Tues, Wed, Thurs, Fri), Campione of the Raging Tides, History Strongest Disciple Again?, Mending the Knots, Heroes Assemble!, Taylor Varga, Marvel’s Maelstrom, Titanfall, Gorgon and Thanatos and Kingdom Drabbles.

I’ll finish the after-quest stories first, Short Story Drabbles is the Harry Potter compilation fic. It has 227 chapters. The new stories it’s crossovered with are Hollows (a manga), Magico (a novel series), Dragon Kishidan (a manga/Anime), Little Pet Shop of Horrors (an anime and manga) and Numb3rs (an American TV series about a mathematician who helps his FBI brother).

Famgilia Drabbles is the KHR compilation fic. The new stories it’s crossovered with are Beauty and Beast (please watch a version of this if you haven’t already), Mouse (an older manga about a phantom thief), Stitch (a Movie and series about a alien experiment that lands on Earth) and Katana (a manga about a forger who can see the true form of the swords).

Stories of Fate is the Fate/Stay Night compilation fic (and the last one!). There are no new stories in the 39 chapters (because most of them have already been made into full stories). The crossovers from the non-full story chapters are: Fullmetal Alchemist, Pokémon, Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, Rising of the Shield Hero and Harry Potter.

When Empires Collide by Nemesis13 is a Star Wars and Code Geass crossover. Before the Zero Requiem, the Empire invades the Earth. The world unites to fight them and become a thorn in the Empire’s side. Nunnally ends up on Tatooine and befriends Luke. It’s a fun story, but not long and updated irregularly (was just updated).

Yesterday’s Tomorrow by Umei no Mai is a KHR (maybe Harry Potter later) fic that’s a companion fic to Black Sky. In Black Sky, Tsuna and friends were sent to the future, but didn’t go back soon after like they were supposed to. Tsuna can tell that this isn’t really the future as he knows he isn’t the Tenth Boss. Watch as he tries to find a way home while annoyed at his ‘future self’.

That’s it for this week, but at least I won’t mention sakurademonalchemist unless they post a new fic. Oh also, for those who didn’t know, KH3 now has a Critial Mode DLC. If you play it, prepare to die (that’s all I know as I haven’t played that one yet). Next week I’ll have seen Avengers: Endgame so be prepared for my thought on it! See you then and May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

sakurademonalchemist’s Birthday and a New Series

Hello, intrepid readers. As I mentioned last post, from this post onward I will only be posting on Friday. Since last post I’ve mostly been re-listening to Desperately Seeking Ranma and Gamer of the Sword. The new chapters this week are Worm – Justice for All (2 chaps), Heroes Assemble!, Hashtag Believing is Seeing, Another Soldier Reporting, Angels and Demons, Seerking’s Asylum and Mauling Snarks.

Yesterday was apparently sakurademonalchemist’s birthday so they updated the three mentioned fics above and made two new stories that were in one of the compilation fics (it seems, haven’t gotten to them yet).

Dawn of Magic is a Harry Potter and Akatsuki no Yona (Yona of the Dawn) crossover. Akatsuki no Yuna is about a teenager named Yuna who is the daughter of a cowardly king. On her birthday, her cousin (Su-Won, who she loved) kills her father in order to take the throne. She escapes with help to find those who can help her take back her country. It has a manga series still running and had a one season anime.

In the fic, fem Harry has been reincarnated into Yona and finds Su-Won suspicious. When she figures out her father is dead, she escapes without help. It’s only one chapter so far (and I don’t know much about the other story), but it looks interesting.

Corpse Cleaner is a KHR fic, where Tsuna escapes Japan at a young age and somehow becomes a crime scene cleaner for the mafia. He doesn’t know that his dad is in the Vongola, but helps the Varia clean up their messes. He sees Hayato and hires him to help with the disposal. Also only one chapter.

I also read More Short Story Drabbles which is a Naruto version of the Bleach and Kingdom Hearts ones I mentioned last time. It’s 70 chapters long, so I’m not even gonna try and mention all the stories it’s crossovered with, just the ones I haven’t mentioned before. Dream Eater Merry (a manga about a guy who can predict dreams and a dream demon), Frozen (if you don’t know this is, what rock have you been under?) and Okami (a game series about Amaterasu [the Japanese Sun Goddess] saving Japan).

There was also Supernatural Drabbles, once again a compilation fic but for Supernatural.  It’s 42 chapters and the previously unmentioned stories are: Legion (the movie where Angels try and attack humans), The Covenant (a horror movie where the descendants of the Salem witches face their own trials) and Five Nights at Freddy’s (a jump scare game series where you are a security guard that has to survive possessed animatronics).

I also started rereading (though I’ve never read far) and rewatching (same as reading) a series called A Certain Magical Index. It’s a series about Touma Kamijou, a Level 0 esper (0 means no power, or an undetectable power) who lives in Academy City. There they foster esper powers, though he’s a very bad student. He has horrible luck and the only ‘power’ he has is to cancel out any power that touches his right hand (only his hand). He meets a young nun who clams to be a magic user, but he doesn’t believe until he meets the people after her. Follow his and her story. There are also several spin-offs.

I’ve been watching Everglow (on Youtube) play though Kingdom Hearts Chi (x) a game that’s technically before Union x, but most of the scenes have been in Union x because the player is reliving it. The game was only released for PC in Japan and is no longer available. I’m mostly watching for the scenes not yet shown in Union x about the Keyblade War. It’s the last bit of information I don’t have about Kingdom Hearts.

Nothing more this week, I hope you have a great week and I’ll see you next Friday. May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

After the Quest and a Change in the Posting Schedule

Hi everyone! Sorry I didn’t post on Friday, I actually forgot and didn’t really remember until Sunday (or maybe Saturday, but not until late). Thinking about it, I’ve decided that I’ll just post on Fridays, because then I won’t have to worry about staying up late to post (I have very early mornings, not that it matters this week cause I don’t have work for the rest of it cause there’s not currently much work.) Anyway, I’ve been rereading a few of sakurademonalchemist stories (mostly listening to them), but I’ve also been rereading Ichigo Awakens, Prime Directive: Hero, Gamer of the Sword and finished rereading the Pick Up the Pieces series – Rebuild. The new chapters this past week were: Devil Ninja, Zero no Tsukaima: Saito the Onmyoji, Viridescent, Heroes Assemble!, Raptor of the 20th Ward, Titanfall, Taylor Varga (Thurs & Sun) , Unexpected Restart, An Essence of Silver and Steel, Relic of the Future, Gun Bunny, The Unseen Hunt, God Slaying Blade Works, Tsunami, Black Sky, Mauling Snarks (Omake on Wed, Normal on Fri & Mon), Another Soldier Reporting (Mon & Tues), Souls of the Heart and Service with a Smile.

Since the Quest is over, you’d think that I wouldn’t have much to talk about sakurademonalchemist for, right? Well they have another new story. Its called Hashtag Believing is Seeing. It’s a Rise of the Guardians story where Jack discovers that the Internet can allow him to interact with humans and raise the belief in himself. Thus when the Guardians pull him into their fight with Pitch, he’s not very happy. It’s fun and is two chapters now (started yesterday).

I’ve also been reading some of the compilation fics they have, so I’ll go over them. Kingdom Drabbles is a Kingdom Hearts compilation fic where stories with KH as one of the original stories that might eventually be continued are.   So far it’s has crossovers with Fate/Extra, Once Upon a Time, Harry Potter, Star Wars, Nanoha and KHR. They’re interesting, but the nine chapters only contain up to two chapters of the story.

Bleach Drabbles is much the same only for Bleach. It has crossovers for Hell Girl, Nanoha, Naruto, Harry Potter, Natsume’s Book of Friends, Supernatural, My Little Pony (though it’s not very Bleachy) and KHR. Only one of the stories in here has become a fic of its own, Reaping the Cards. It’s also the only one with three chapters.

The Twin Tides is a fic that just got an update that’s by Solvdrage. It’s a Naruto fic where Naruto has a female twin that looks out for him. It’s only three chapters now, but Solvdrage does good fics (though they usually update slowly). It’s only just on when they graduate, but it looks like it won’t be the same old teams!

sbmcneil posted a new one-shot just an hour ago called Of Splendour in the Grass. It’s a Harry Potter fic focused on Harry/Ginny during his fifth year. In it Harry and Ginny are sent on a ‘detention’ date to Hogsmeade by McGonagall. It’s a cute litte fic.

I forgot to mention it, but a little while back, they also posted another one-shot called A Godfather’s Love. It has Sirius never escaping and being killed when Voldemort invades Azkaban. Harry never knew about him until then and when he finds out it was kept from him, he finds his own help to stop Voldie. A sad fic, but not a bad one.

That’s it for the new stories, but I have a few more things to talk about. Next month the new Code Geass Movie, Code Geass: Lelouch of the Re;surrection, is going to be in theaters. It’ll be playing in select theaters on May 5, 7 & 8. The 5th will be subbed and the 7th and 8th will be dubbed. You can buy tickets on the Funimation website – https://www.funimationfilms.com/.

I’ve also been watching a YouTuber – SarahKey play through KH3.   Why because I can and it’s interesting watching someone react to everything for the first time. Here is a link to her channel – https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6TF2WuXLVgcP5TZVLuLf4A.

Thanks everyone for putting up with me. See you on Friday and May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!
