The Quest and Honestly Harry (With a Little Marvel)

Hello everyone! It’s Tuesday once again and you know what that means, another post. I saw Captain Marvel over the weekend and will talk about it next post. There will most likely be a spoiler warning for it, just so everyone knows. I continued my newest quest and I think I’ve now reread all of the fics I’ve already read from them now. I also finally finished rereading Honestly Harry – The Year of the Rock and started rereading The Greatest Prank (for amusement value). The new chapters this weekend are: Black Sky, Worm – Justice For All, Relic of the Future, Headstart, Worm: More Than Meets the Eye, A Ninja Summoned, Service With a Smile, Mauling Snarks, Melody of Fire and SAO: The Eroge.

I’ll cover the only non-quest story first, Honestly Harry – The Founders Chambers by Captain Compass. It’s the third in the series and covers the second year of this Harry and his hug-buddies. Watch as he tries to find all the Founder’s Chambers while students are being attacked. And why has Ginny forgot all about the other two?

Moving on the sakurademonalchemist quest stories, the first one that was reread was – Raptor. It’s a Jurassic Park/World and Harry Potter crossover. Hagrid’s dragon egg wasn’t one at all, it was a velociraptor that becomes attached to Harry (the only one to realize what it is). It bonds with him as a familiar and when he tries to find out where it came from, he finds out about John Hammond. He helps fund the park and make it safer (set a few years before the first movie). How will a dino-happy Harry change things?

Next is Bruja, a Harry Potter and Avengers crossover. It has fem Harry becoming Hel’s chosen after the final battle. Rather than let the sheep Ministry try to control her, she asks Hel to lock her in her animagus form, a cat. After wondering around for a while, she runs into Bruce Banner and becomes his pet. It’s not until S.H.E.I.L.D. comes looking for him that anyone realizes she’s anything more than a smart cat. What will happen next?

Then there was Reaping the Cards, a Bleach and Yu-Gi-Oh! crossover. Ichigo is sent to Domino City for school after the Winter War because his school is damaged in the war. There he meets Seto, Yugi and gang. After seeing the battle between Yami Yugi and Seto over the Yugi’s grandpa’s Blue-Eyes White Dragon (Ichigo saves it), he knows something weird is going on. How will the powerless Ichigo set things on a different track?

The last of the reread stories was FateConfusion! It’s the sequel to Naruto Emiya and is a Fate/Stay Night, Naruto and Fate/Zero crossover. It has a bored Naruto deciding to go troll the Fourth Grail War by taking the survivors from the Fifth with him to interfere. It’s fun, but only three chapters. Could have been much better. Not updated since 2014.

The first of the initial read through fics is Charm School Magic. It’s a Bleach, Lyrical Nanoha and Yu-Gi-Oh! Charmers crossover. Karin finds a device (based on Charmer’s gear) and becomes a mage a few months before the start of the both series. She trains and finds other devices for Yuzu and Orihime. Eventually, Nanoha starts and she helps Nanoha on her quest. How will mages change things? Not updated since 2013.

The second fic is Circus Surprise, a Gundam Wing and Harry Potter crossover. After fourth year, Harry runs away to the circus and ends up in the same one as Trowa. Harry gets involved with the Gundam pilots and helps them out. Warning The description says it’s a Trowa/Quatre fic, but it doesn’t get that far. Don’t like, don’t read. This and all other fics from now on (except for an exception or two) were last updated in 2012.

Third was Troubles in Time, a Harry Potter and Naruto crossover. Kushina was an adopted Uzumaki and was really a time-displaced fem Harry. When she’s about to die, a ritual by Dumbles pulls her a few years into the future into an eleven year-old body. She’s going to find her way back home, but the Shinigami asks for her help getting back the Hallows in exchange for a way to contact Konoha and her husband back. Will Hogwarts be able to handle the Red Hot-Blooded Habenaro?

Next is it’s sequel, Trails of the Fox. Kushina, her family and friends are back in the Elemental Countries, but now they have get back at those who wronged Naruto while they were gone. Will having his parents back change things? Was updated last in 2013.

Following that is three-chapter side story fic for the previously mentioned fics called Pranks and Punishments. It has three side stories from Troubles in Time and Trails of the Fox. Not very long, but amusing.

Then was Cutting Moon, Eclipsed Moon, a Bleach and Lyrical Nanoha crossover. While visiting Uminari, Ichigo finds a book that turns out to be device. When he awakens it, Time and Space Administration eventually approaches him and fixes it. It’s a fun four-chapter story, which once again I wish would continue.

There were also two new stories (I mean really?), the first is The Dragon’s Knight.  It’s a KHR, Fate/Stay Night and Fate/Apocrypha crossover.  Xansus is a magus with a family crest from his mother.  When he learns he can’t inherit, he decides to join on the Red team to get the grail and make a wish.  Watch as he summons Mordred and get started.  Only the first chapter.

Second was Flameheart, a KHR and My Hero Academia crossover.  Tsuna is thought to be quirkless, but in reality his father had his quirk sealed.  He works around his and decides not to be a victim.  However, everything changes when he learns that All Might is his grandfather!  Only the first chapter.

That’s all I’ll talk about today, I’ll see all of you on Friday. Have a great week and May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

It’s a sakurademonalchemist Weekend, with Some Dragons Mixed in!

Hello again my friends. It’s been an interesting weekend, but nothing too interesting. At least I’m on time this week. I started more closely rereading Here in My Arms and that’s the only previously mentioned fic I read. The new chapters this weekend are: Knight of Betrayal and Taiga Cub, Relic of the Future, Taylor Varga (Omake), The Unseen Hunt, Luna Lovegood and the Dark Lord’s Diary, Muggleborn Teacher, Seerking’s Asylum and Souls of the Heart.

I got all three new Pokémon from this weekend’s event (Clampearl and it’s evolution) and even got two shinnies out of it. I also got the all the Pokémon from eggs (except for Happiny, which came from the Valentine’s event). I recently learned that you can catch Smeargle by taking photos of your Pokémon until it photo booms it. Then it’ll be in the wild wherever you are. I did it and it works.

The new fics are only from sakurademonalchemist, but that’s not the only thing I have to talk about. The first of these fics was Sora and Zorua. It’s a Harry Potter and Pokémon Ranger fic. Pokémon Ranger is a variant Pokémon game where you call Pokémon with a styler and only have one ‘partner’ Pokémon.

In the fic, Harry falls through into the Pokémon world and decides to be a Ranger at 10. He gets a Zorua that he helped once as his partner in order the save it from human revenge. He eventually gets his Hogwarts’ letters and heads there to learn how to use his powers. Not many ‘regular’ Pokémon characters, but a few are around. Not updated since 2014.

Second was Chaos Incarnate, which is a Ranma ½ and Naruto crossover. In it Ranma is cursed to keep looking as young as he did when he defeated Saffron and gets away from all but one of the fiancées. Later, he’s in the Leaf village and meets a young Naruto. Upon learning he’s a prankster, he gives Naruto a box of permanent cursed spring powder. What can go wrong with that? Also updated in 2014.

Third is one I reread called Some Hearts and is a Harry Potter, Marvel Cinematic Universe and Avengers crossover. After the war, fem Harry has her magic bound and is married to Draco Malfoy against her will. Hel, not liking that her newest ‘Master of Death’ was powerless, works things around that the two of them are in New York during the events of the end of Avengers. She finds a way to head to Asgard with Thor and Loki and uses that to help herself heal. Will she be able to find someone on Asgard? Same update year as the last two.

Next is another who I reread called Shinobi of the Night Sky. It’s a Naruto and Lyrical Nanoha crossover where Fem. Naruto is found with the Book of Darkness after the sealing of the Kyuubi. It activates at a young age and she finds herself partially paralyzed and with new family. How will the TSAB react to this? This one has not been updated since 2013.

Following that is Alchemy and Wizardry, a Harry Potter and Fullmetal Alchemist crossover. Before the Elric brothers can attempt human transmutation, they get letters to Hogwarts and decide to go. There they befriend fellow first year, Harry Potter. Will their new friend be able to stop them from trying to bring back their mom or will he decide to join in? This is based on the original anime, not the manga storyline. Also not updated since 2013.

Next to last is King of the Changlings, which is a Naruto and My Little Pony crossover. In it Naruto tries to summon without a contract at a very young age and gets Chrysalis, soon to be Queen on the Changlings. He signs her contract and she and her minions work to get him a better life. But how will things go when he meets the normal ponies after years of working with the changelings? Same update year as last two.

Finally, there was Unspoken Wars, which is a Harry Potter and Fate/Stay Night crossover. Having had enough of the British Wizarding World after fourth year, Harry finds he has a relative Japan (Petunia was not related to him) and decides to got live with him. Enter Shiro Emiya, a Magus. But after years of animosity between Wizards and Magus, can the two get along? Also updated in 2013.

Moving on from fics, I also watched “How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World” this weekend. It’s good and I won’t post spoilers for it, but it is definitely the last in the series. The way the ending went, unless they decide to do something far in the future (or do things before the movie), there will be no more. I’m sad, but all things (good and bad) come to an end. If they didn’t, we wouldn’t appreciate that we will have even more great things to come.

That’s it for today, though I have to say my Kingdom Hearts shirts came in this weekend as well. I can say this knowing I wore it on my shirt all of today, May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

Yeah, that Super Bowl … A Bit of Let Down, Wasn’t It?

Hi friends, I don’t have much to report this weekend because of Kingdom Hearts 3, the Super Bowl and making the fanfiction archive. The Super Bowl was kinda a let down right? I mean, it was a game of many firsts for a Super Bowl, but I’m not sure ‘lowest scoring game’ is one that either team wanted. Some of the commercials were interesting but last years were better and the Half-time show was okay, but not the greatest especially with all the bleeping. In other news, the fanfiction archive is growing, but it’s not done yet.

Kingdom Hearts 3, is an awesome game. I’ve done most of the worlds shown in trailers: Tangled, Winnie the Pooh, Toy Story, Frozen, Monster’s Inc. and Pirates of the Caribbean 3. Big Hero 6 is next and we’ll find out where we go from there. There are a lot of cut-scenes in-between worlds cause there’re just so many characters to follow. I’ll really looking forward to where this all is leading!

Story-wise, I continued reading Dodging Prison and Stealing Witches – Revenge is Best Served Cold and started rereading Harry Potter and the Stargate. The new chapters for this weekend are: Relic of the Future, Seerking’s Asylum, Hive Daughter, The Unseen Hunt, Tsunami and Mauling Snarks..

I started reading the sequel to the Danger-verse story I mentioned last time by whydoyouneedtoknow called, Living Without Danger. It follows Harry and the Pack throughout their first two years at Hogwarts and their adventures without Danger around. It’s good and looking forward to the rest.

I also got a updated for a story I haven’t mentioned yet, called Peace through Power by Vherstinae. It’s a Command & Conquer (Game) and Worm Crossover where Taylor finds a journal of her mother’s time under Lustrum and finds the phrase ‘Peace Through Power.’ She uses this and her mother’s powerful family to free herself from Winslow and the story goes on from there. It’s only nine chapters so far, but it’s interesting.

Finally, I started reading a Harry Potter and Stargate SG-1 crossover called Harry Potter and The Chance at a New Life by kossboss. It has the basilisk bite weakening the soul piece in Harry’s head after second year, allowing Harry to take all the memories and destroy it. Using them and looking over his life, he decides to take all he can and go through the unlocked ‘Veil of Death’ to an alternate reality. He ends up in room with the Quantum Mirror (before SG-1 gets there). Watch how his presence changes things! I haven’t finished, but it looks like its still going!

See everyone on Friday. I look forward to a finishing another day of work and continuing KH3. Have a great week and May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

It’s a Week to KH3!

Hey everyone! It’s been an fun weekend.  No polls and I haven’t had time to work on getting the list of fanfic I’ve mentioned up yet, still figuring out how I want to do it.  In PoGo news, I got a shiny Feebas on Saturday’s event but no one on my town’s chat can find this month’s Spinda task.  Anyway, I continued with Taylor Varga and Drifting, along with starting to rereading Demonic Jewels and catching up with Titanfall (Fanfic).  I also watched Back Cover and Kingdom Hearts 0.2, so I am completely ready for KH3 a week from now!  This weekend’s new chapters were: The Gamer (Webcomic), Breaking the Guilded Cage, Angels and Demons, Relic of the Future, An Essence of Silver and Steel, Taylor Varga Omake (Sat, Sun, Mon), Headstart, Warlock, Price of Blood, The Unseen Hunt, Gun Bunny and Mauling Snarks.  I also learned I need to catch up with Ashes of the Past cause it had the battle the whole fic has been leading up to in a few chapters update (not that it’s finished, just that the original point of having gone back is done).

I actually read a few new stories this weekend, so get ready, cause here they come!  First is ‘Hive Daughter’ by PlateGlassArmour.  It’s a Worm fic with a slight Warhammer 40,000 crossover.  It has Taylor connecting to their Hive mind when she Triggers and learning how they do what they do.  Watch as Taylor becomes a Bio-tinker Master and try to work with the good guys (which is hard because some of them are against her), here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13012317/1/Hive-Daughter.

Next is ‘Teeth and Claws’ by TheShadowSwan.  It’s a Harry Potter and KHR crossover with a fem. Harry.  She has multiple personalities to deal with different parts of her life and eventually ends up with one called ‘Skull de Mort.’  She is called to the table of greatest because of another personality who was The Greatest Thief, Noir.  She doesn’t trust any of them, but especially Luce, Lal Mitch and Iron Hat.  Find out how she changes things by following this link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12928533/1/Teeth-and-Claws.

Then, there was ‘Marvel’s Maelstrom’ by Pibbinator.  It’s a Naruto and MCU crossover that has Naruto being transported to save him by Sasuke during the battle against Kaguya.  He ends up landing near Kamar-Taj and the Ancient One takes him in and helps him.  He wants to get back to help his friends, but can’t find out how to do it.  He ends up looking for the Space Stone to help him and gets caught up in the MCU’s problems.  Here is the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12365777/1/Marvel-s-Maelstrom.

On to more sakurademonalchemist, the first is on that is only on AO3, ‘Transcending Time and Space.’  It’s another crossover between Harry Potter and KHR and has fem. Harry being Fran from the future timeline.  She gets her memories back early and leaves after her OWLS to join the Varia.  She joins as a maid to easily get in, but what’s up with her and Prince the Ripper?  Find out here – https://archiveofourown.org/works/14302704/chapters/32997702.

After that is ‘An Angel and a Trickster,’ which is a Supernatural and Harry Potter crossover.  In it, fem. Harry is depressed for her fifth year when Gred and Forge summon Loki to the castle to take care of Umbridge.  Loki takes a liking to her and decides to make a deal that if he can make her happy again, she’ll go out with him.  Can he win the bet or will things come crumbling down.  Find out at this link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10142032/1/An-Angel-and-a-Trickster.

Third is ‘Shattered Mask’ a crossover between Naruto and MCU.  When the council tries to screw her over after the War, Fem Naruto takes the other Bijuu and vessels out of the Elemental Countries.  They scatter, but she ends up on Asgard as a bar maid.  There she meets Thor, Loki and friends.  The only one she can tolerate is Loki and she decides to help him out.  Here is the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10709418/1/Shattered-Mask.

Fourth is ‘Crimson Typhoon,’ which is a One Piece and Naruto.  Kushina’s dad is Shanks and he picks up Fem. Naruto after his parents are killed.  She joins him on her crew and ends up working on her own. Oh, and something happened causing each nation to be it’s own island.  All of that and more, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10574085/1/Crimson-Typhoon.

Fifth is ‘Hidden Song,’ another Harry Potter and Supernatural crossover.  This time though, Harry is Bobby (more aged for reasons).  Watch as he helps the Winchesters out while dealing with England come for him. And this time England is not coming home! (sorry, when I typed the sentence before that it came to me and I couldn’t stop myself.  For those who don’t know what I’m talking about, look up Football England Coming Home Song and you’ll find it.)  The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10496217/1/Hidden-Song.

Sixth (and last that I’ve read currently of their fics) is ‘Kitsune Otome,’ which is a Mai HIME (Mai OTOME) crossover.  In the battle between Sasuke and Fem. Naruto when the former is defecting, a portal is accidentally opened and she ends up in the world of Mai OTOME.  She trains to become an Otome until she can go home.  But will things be the same when she does?   Find out here –  https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10368153/1/Kitsune-Otome.

Moving On, I also watched “That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime.”  The anime is only 16 episodes long now, but the web novel (turned light novel) is finished.  After watching all the episodes, I started reading the web novel.  Anyway, it’s about an almost 40 salary worker who saves his junior from being stabbed and gets killed.  He ends up reincarnated in another world as a slime, but a powerful one.  I haven’t finished it yet (by a long shot), but it’s interesting.

That’s everything for the weekend, but I’m going to see the new Dragon Ball Super movie tomorrow!  See you readers on Friday and May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

 

I Changed the Archive and Made a Poll (Please Vote!)

Hey everyone! It’s been a week and no one has liked (or really read) any or the posts since I started this style of writing. Therefore, I made a poll that I’ll put a link to at the beginning of the post for the next week while I continue with this style. After those two weeks, I’ll look at the result and use the winning style from now on. Please take some time to vote here – https://linkto.run/p/24VJOOZJ.

I’ve also redone the archive section like I mentioned last time. The only direct chapter links in the Archive will be from the current month. When we get to February, I’ll move the January post links to a January page and put a link to it in Archive. When 2019 ends (and I hopefully will still be posting and have more people reading my posts), I’ll do what I did with my 2018 posts and move the month links to a new 2019 page that will be linked on the main Archive page.

These past few days I’ve read some more of Outfoxed and Lord Over the Night Sky and started rereading Prime Directive: Hero, How Eating a Strange Fruit Gave Me My Quirk and Taylor Varga. The new chapters were from: Tsunami, Service with a Smile, Reality Bites Worm, My Hero Academia (manga chapter), It’s in the Cards, Heroes Assemble!, Taylor Varga and Death March (the online story).

Since I liked the fanfic Archer from last post, I decided to look into other stories by the author Fencer22. The first one that caught my eye was ‘Flames’ which is a Worm and KHR crossover. The only real crossover is that Taylor triggers with Dying Will flames, but not Sky. Instead of the normal Taylor’s outlook of becoming a Hero, this Taylor is more practical and wants money to prepare for the imminent end of the world (and explains why she thinks so). It’s interesting, though it only has 13 chapters. If you would like to read it, here is the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13042230/1/Flames.

The other one I found interesting was ‘Grind,’ which is a Worm and multiple crossover fic. It has Taylor triggering with the power to enter any type of story (Book, DVD or game) and gain the power(s) of whatever characters she or anyone she brings along play as. The only issue, they have to go through the whole story. For example, when she goes into the first book, she’s stuck ‘reading’ the book and doing whatever the main character does for four hours until the end of it, basically outing herself. It’s a good story, sadly the author decided they could not write it anymore and just posted a spattering of scenes leading up to an ‘ending’ for the last chapter. So, if you feel you can read it and not be disappointed with that ending, feel free to read it here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11375309/1/Grind.

Next, sakurademonalchemist posted a new story called, ‘Breaking the Gilded Cage.’ It’s a KHR and Natsume’s Book of Friends crossover, with a female Tsuna turning back time to her younger self to get away from the Vongola and instead taking the route of Takashi from Natsume’s Book of Friends. It’s only two chapters long so far, but it’s not bad. Kinda hard to make a decision about how a story will be in two chapters. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13166072/1/Breaking-the-Gilded-Cage.

Following that I found the fic ‘Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R-eset’ by Starlight’s Poet. It’s a Lelouch of the Rebellion story with side stories like Code Geass: Akito of the Exiled and game storylines included. It starts off with Lelouch getting the chance to relive his rebellion from the start and him taking it. He’s more powerful this time and knows what happened to his mother, so he can focus on taking down Britannia. The story is interesting and I haven’t finished it yet up to the current chapter yet, so I hope it continues to be so. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10704227/1/Code-Geass-Lelouch-of-the-Rebellion-R-eset.

Finally, I started rereading ‘Neo Yondaime Hokage’ by Psycho G. The story is a Naruto one where Minato not only seals the Kyuubi into Naruto; he also seals himself. Naruto grows up as Tsunade’s ‘son’ and soon finds multiple women after him. But, just because he is stronger doesn’t mean he’ll bulldoze through fights. He still will have issues, just different ones than the normal ones. He even accidentally visits the ‘canon’ universe and changes things for the better! It hasn’t been updated since 2015, but hopefully it will eventually be updated. Here is the link to the story – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/3201446/1/Neo-Yondaime-Hokage.

Going back to more of what I watched during my ‘Christmas break from blogging’ (I’ll be doing one or two movies/shows for the next few posts because I watched a lot during that time period) I watched “The Mummy Returns” from the Mummy series. I’ve seen it and the rest of the series before, but I always enjoy rewatching them. Watching Rick and Evelyn O’Conner battle it out against Imhotep while trying to save their son is great. I was sad Evelyn didn’t return for the third movie, but it was good anyway. Not sure which one is my favorite, though the third one was probably my least favorite. I would recommend any of them though if you haven’t watched them yet!

To finish it off, I watched “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.” I would have liked it better if I had read the story before hand, but it was what was decided to watch at that time. I found it interesting, even if I missed the first part. I’ll probably read the books sometime, but I think I’ll like the books better because it looks like they just crammed the second book at least into the last 30 mins of the movie.

Anyway, that’s the end of the post today! Look forward to the post on Monday and don’t forget to vote! Here’s the link again, just in case – https://linkto.run/p/24VJOOZJ.

A Different Way of Writing

Hello everyone, I’m going to try something different for today’s post. Instead of going day by day, I’m going to just do the whole week (post) together and see how it looks. If people like this style better (after a trial week following this one), I will adopt this one instead of the old style (and vis versa). The chapters that updated this week were: Black Sky (Fri, Sat), Ashes to Flame, Memories of Iron, Devil Arts Online, Mauling Snarks (Fri, Mon, Tues [Omake]), Tsunami (Fri, Tues), History Strongest Disciple Again? (the story I beta), By Your Side is Where I Belong, Heroes Assemble (Sat, Wed), Reality Bites Worm, Jaune Ryu-Long, The Dragon Contractor, Alea lacta Est, The Reclamation of Black Magic, Deku: The Golden Saiyan Hero of Hope, God Slaying Blade Works, A Sith’s Second Chance, and Devil Ninja.

Next, I’ll go through the fanfiction I read this week, followed by what I watched. I reread Reality Bites Worm, started rereading The XXXX You Say and started rereading Light the Blue Touch Paper and Run Like Hell. The first new story I reread was from sakurademonalchemist and it was called, ‘Rise of the Black Dragon.’ This is another Harry Potter and KHR crossover with Harry being Xansus this time. He is left in the trash in Italy when he was young and found by Xansus’ mom after the ‘original’ Xansus was killed by one of her patrons. Events follow, but he knows that the Ninth is not is dad and he ends up at Hogwarts. It’s interesting and has 13 chapters currently. The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12787598/1/Rise-of-the-Black-Dragon.

The second story I reread by them is ‘Between Lies and Truth,’ which is a KHR and Harry Potter story, again. It has Colonello being a Harry Potter who ran away from England to get away from everything and joined Comsubin (Italian Navy). Lal Mitch discovers that there is much more to her new student than a happy go lucky sniper. There are 10 chapters and it can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12903809/1/Between-Lies-and-Truth.

The next from them that I reread is called ‘If Only You Knew’ and is the previous story switched. It’s a Harry Potter and KHR crossover where Lal Mitch is a female Harry and Colonello helps her deal with the PTSD that no-one else could help her with. It’s eleven chapters and is located here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12510267/1/If-You-Only-Knew.

The last from sakurademonalchemist is called ‘Sound of Flames’ and is a pure KHR fic (with some Cardcaptor stuff thrown in). It has a female Tsuna, losing her sight after her flames are sealed. This leads to Hibari finding her sooner and helping her out. Watch how she learns to get around her handicap and still become a great potential boss. The link can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12443581/1/Sound-of-Flames.

Next I read a completely new story (for me) by them called, ‘Shield Wizard.’ It’s a Harry Potter and Rising of the Shield Hero crossover. Rising of the Shield Hero is a story about a boy named ‘Naofumi Iwatani’ who is one of four summoned to be a hero in a new world. However, as he only has a shield, he is not very powerful. After he is betrayed by those who should have been his friends, he becomes cynical and only really trusts those he has control over (like slaves). It was originally a web comic, but is now a light novel and will have an anime soon after the new year.

In the fic, Harry is summon instead of Naofumi and skips being betrayed because he expects it after being a ‘hero’ before. He still befriends some from the original story, but I haven’t read much of the original, so I can’t really say how well it follows it. Still it can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11372046/1/Shield-Wizard.

Next I read a story by Quatermass called ‘Knight of Betrayal and Taiga Cub,’ which is a Harry Potter and Fate/Stay Night crossover. It has the Dursley’s dying in the Fuyuki Fire and Taiga taking Harry in. When Harry goes to Hogwarts for the TriWizard Tournament, he finds Mordred (female) healed and kept under stasis until he found her. He takes her with him back to Japan and she (as a powerful human not a Heroic Spirit) is still around for the Fifth Grail War. Watch as she tries to get something from her ‘Father’ that she hasn’t had before, acceptance, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13145171/1/Knight-of-Betrayal-and-Taiga-Cub.

I then read some new stories from the author of ‘The XXXX You Say,’ Selector, starting with ‘Trekking.’ It’s a Worm fic has Taylor having a different triggering event, which leaves her paraplegic and only able to move her eyes. Her powers eventually fix that, and she can control animals, but her main skill is to be able to make any tech from the Star Trek universe. It currently has 16 chapters and is interesting. The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13071083/1/Trekking.

Next was ‘Gun Bunny’ which has Taylor triggering with an ability similar to Miss Miltia’s but with the power to make the gun/war machine real after a certain time, if it’s left out. She takes over the Merchants with a healed Squealer and make it more a protector (gang) instead of a drug dealing one. Watch as she, like any good Taylor, escalates, until she gets the right result. This fic’s link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13046274/1/Gun-Bunny.

Next is a Harry Potter fic with a slight Underworld crossover by the same author called, ‘Harry Potter and the Witches Secret.’

R Rated Content

This fic has Harry ‘Bonding’ tons of witches because he was not taught to control his power and thus attracts witches that are magically compatible. This is not just a Sex fic, but it has a lot of it.

R Rated Content

Harry reforms Britain and has many people under his command. The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12575091/1/Witches-Secret.

The ‘sequel’ is called ‘Harry Potter and the Dark Lady,’ and I am in the middle of reading it. It is included in the previous story right after the other story ends. It has Harry dealing with a Dark Lady who wants him, but won’t play nice. However, the author also has a Yahoo group with all their fics, which can be found here – https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/Rotaryfile/files.

While I was with my relatives, we watched many things (including football, which I don’t normally do, except for the Superbowl). One thing that always seemed to be on was a buying or building house shows. One of these was “My Lottery Dream Home” on HGTV. It has host David Bromstad helping lottery winners find their dream home. It’s interesting, but I thought that other than if I really needed a new place, I wouldn’t blow all that money I just won finding the ‘perfect’ house. (Not that I play the lottery or gamble, but that’s a different story). It’s okay to watch, but not too great to do in real life.

Next was “Maine Cabin Masters”, which has a builder, Chase Morrill, working with family and friends to help save abandoned cabins and get them ready for their new owners. This one was okay, but I felt that some of the drama was contrived a little bit to make it more interesting. I would suggest it, but only after watching it a little bit more.

There was also “Building Off the Grid” where they document people building in the middle of no-where. The one I watched was where they were building a survival cabin on a glacier in Alaska. It was interesting, but it looked very cold and I’m not sure I could have done it.

Moving On, we also watched a few episodes of the series “Bones” that ended recently. Even though I’m not really interested in the gory things, this show was really interesting. I’ve watched all the seasons except for the last few ones, and that will happen soon. The character ‘Bones’ and her partner, Booth, are some of my favorite TV personalities.

To finish up (I’ll talk about other things I watched next time) I also saw Mary Poppins Returns and Bumblebee in theaters and will talk about them. First off, Mary Poppins Returns is a great sequel to the original. It has the original Banks children grown up and Michael has children of his own. When an issue comes up, Mary Poppins shows up to help her older charges and her newer ones. I really love this movie and love that they include little parts in the music where you can hear parts of the original movie’s songs in it.

From the very beginning, Mary Poppins knows what needs to happen, but if everything was resolved quickly, none of her charges would have learned anything. So, she sets everything up so that everyone can have a learning experience. Even if the cliché of having everything fixed at the last minute exists in it.

Spoilers

Bumblebee is also a really good movie. I enjoyed hearing his original voice and learning how he got his name. It showed the American’s first contact with the Autobots and Decepticons. I liked the main female lead, Charlie, but I felt that she very much overshadowed all but John Cena’s character Agent Burns, for the humans at least. Good movie, just needs a stronger ‘human’ cast.

Spoilers

The amount of ‘The Breakfast Club’ references in the movie was amusing. There was even a Rick Roll in there. I don’t know what happens between this movie and the first Transformers movie, but I found interesting parallels between Charlie finding Bumblebee in a junkyard and Sam finding him in a used car lot. Maybe in the next of, however many more movies there’ll be, we’ll find out.

I Have an Archive Now

Friday

So, like I mentioned last post, I made an archive for my posts. A link to it can be found on the menu at the top of the main blog. It is separated into months for now, but I will be working on it so that it will be better accessible. I read some more God Slaying Blade Works, but mainly focused on Desperately Seeking Ranma. The only new chapter for today was from Mauling Snarks.

Because I was busy with life, I didn’t read much else today. Therefore, I’ll talk about Shokugeki no Soma (or as the American’s have renamed it, Food Wars!). It’s about Soma Yukihara, a teenager who loves cooking and wants to surpass his father and take over the family restaurant. However, when his father leaves to travel the world, he sends his son to an elite culinary school called, Totsuki Saryo Culinary Institute. They only take the best and he does get in, but the school has an interesting practice, Shokugeki (or Food War). It’s a contest between people where both sides put have agreed to something happening if they lose (like giving the other person their position of power within the academy or agreeing to let a club continue instead of disbanding it). Watch how Soma and his friends learn more about how to cook while dealing with the challenges in their way. It’s fun and I need to catch up on it. It started off as a manga, but now has 3 anime seasons.

Nothing more today, so I’ll end this part here.

Saturday

I read a bit more God Slaying Blade Works, but again was mostly Desperately Seeking Ranma. The new chapters for today were: Stand Together and Smile (the last one of this story, with a maybe sequel in the future), Relic of the Future, Ashes to Flame, Stark Imprint and Heroes Assemble! I didn’t read much else, but I did watch parts of a few animes.

The first one was the first half of the first season of Initial D. Initial D (for initial drift) is an anime/manga about street racing by Shuichi Shigeno. It’s about Takumi (Tak) Fujiwara, who has been delivering tofu from his dad’s shop to hotels and other places on the other side of the mountain nearby every day before sunrise. He has become very good at driving it with his father’s (unbeknownst to him) subtle training. This has led him to not care very much about driving or racing, to his friends at the gas station he works at horror. One of his friends is on the local street racing team, which is challenged to a downhill race. Upon hearing that Tak’s father was once a famous street racers, he is asked to do the race. He instead sends Tak in his Toyota Sprinter Trueno (AE86) with a promise that if he wins, he can take the car for a date with a full tank of gas. He wins, but then becomes more involved in the street-racing world.   It’s a good anime and manga. It’s finished now with 719 chapters in the manga, 5 anime seasons, three movies and several OVAs.

The second one was a few episodes of Gurren Lagann. Gurren Lagann is one of the best ‘manly’ mecha animes around. It’s about Simon and Kamina, two humans, who, like the rest of their species, are forced to live in underground villages in a dystopian future by the Spiral King, Lordgenome. They dream of going to the surface and eventually get the chance to with a mecha named Lagann and a hot girl named Yoko. They eventually form Gurren Lagann, a team to free the world of the rule of Lordgenome and the beast men. It’s got 27 episodes that will make you laugh and cry, along with make you want to shout, “Who the hell do you think I am!”

I also heard that someone stole the KHIII game from a shipping company and that’s they’re playing and selling copies. I’m not happy with that for multiple reasons, but I’m not gonna pay attention to any information that’s not verified from the makers. Looking forward to the last trailer on Tuesday though. That’s it for now; tomorrow’s only a line away!

Sunday

Today was once again full of Desperately Seeking Ranma, with maybe a chapter of God Slaying Blade Works. The new chapters today were: The Unseen Hunt, Prime Directive: Hero and Tsunami. I didn’t do much else except for watching someone play through to where the Japanese version of KHUx (KH Unchained x) is (about 35 ‘episodes’ ahead) and learned what Larxene’s real name is (but I’m not gonna say).

I also read a fanfiction by VFSNAKE called ‘Naruto of the Saiyans.’ It has Bardock ending up on the Kyubi’s back instead of dying and getting sealed into Naruto as well. He and the Kyubi work together to change Naruto into a Saiyan and their work comes together when Orochimaru seals Naruto’s seal in the Forest of Death. When his teammates leave him for dead, he comes back better than even and plans to never be a pawn again. It has eight chapters currently and is infrequently updated.

There are sexual situations, but no actual sex. This is currently limited to the omakes at the end of the chapters, but may come into the story itself later on.

Because I don’t have anything else, I’ll talk about Full Metal Panic! Full Metal Panic! is a light novel turned anime by Shoji Gatoh. It’s about a former child soldier, now a part of an anti-terrorist private military organization (Mithril), named Sousuke Sagara. He’s sent to Japan to protect a high school girl named Kaname Chidori, along with his teammates Kurz Weber and Melissa Mao. Why she’s being protected and who’s targeting her are unknowns to them.

Sousuke is sent to her school, but as he has never been in a ‘normal’ situation, he is considered a military nut and Kaname is very annoyed that he keeps trying to protect her. Eventually, the enemy attacks and everything is revealed, including the reason why bipedal machines even exist in a world that is not that different from our own. It’s a good series with 23 novels and 4 anime series (including one that’s just for silliness and is awesome called Fumoffu, the name is eventually explained).

Have a great day and I’ll see everyone when I post tomorrow!

Monday

Today was yet again full of Desperately Seeking Ranma, but the end is in sight. The new chapters for today were: Move On: Tales of Marinette & Adrien, Black Sky (there is going to be a full week of updates! Sqweee! [yes, I’m excited, so what?]), Mauling Snarks, Celestial Worm and Death March (Yay!). There was also the early release of the last KHIII trailer! Which can be found here – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lz1w_uW3lSE.  There’s so much info and WTF in it, I don’t know what to think. Still looking forward to Jan 29th though.

I watched the first few episodes of Death Parade, but it’s not really catching my interest. I really like the opening theme, but the series just seems kinda meh to me. It’s about how if two people die at the same time, instead of just being judged, they are sent to Decim at the Quindecim bar to play a game to discover where their souls belong (reincarnation or the void). A female human with no name works as his assistant, learning how to judge human souls, while helping Decim learn how to read into the emotions behind the actions.

That’s a wrap for today, looking forward to posting on Thursday! I may take off for Christmas after that, but I don’t know yet. I’ll mention it next time if I decide to. See you then!
