A Let’s Go Weekend! (with some Fantastic Beasts)

Friday

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.

Spoiler Warning

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?)

Spoiler Warning

Nothing more today, see you on the next line!

Saturday

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.

Sunday

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!

Monday

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!

I’m Heading Out to Get Let’s Go!

Tuesday

Today, I read so more of I Am Harry Potter and Yo-Ho, Yo-Ho, An Ashikabi’s Life for Me, but didn’t finish either one of them and read books fifteen through the start of eighteen for The Irregular at Magic High School. There were new chapters for; Service with a Smile, Another Fine Mess, and Reading Chronicles Book 1: To the Victor, The Spoils. I got Shedinja on PoGo from the Research Breakthrough this morning, but now I wish that I had waited until this afternoon because of the stupid new Sinnoh Stone. It can only be gotten from the Research Breakthrough, but it didn’t become active until this afternoon (stupid, should happen at night, but I guess it is night somewhere then).

Anyway, I read some more new sakurademonalchemist fics (new as in I haven’t read them, they have like, let me check, 246 stories). The first one was ‘Spirit of the Jewel’ and it’s a InuYasha and Natsume Yūjin-Chō (which will now be Natsume because it’s stupid to get those vowels with symbols every time. It translates out to Natsume’s Book of Friends) crossover. Not sure it I’ve ever said what Natsume is before (really need to make that list I mentioned soon), but it’s about a boy named Takashi Natsume who can see spirits. He has since he was young (He’s a teenager now) and his family switches him between themselves and thinks he’s a liar and troublemaker because of his ability. He inherits a notebook from his grandmother that she bound spirits to control them. He tries to find them and give them back their names (which are in the book).

Spirit of the Jewel has Takashi and Nyanko (a spirit who hangs out with him who wants the book, eventually) going to the Higurashi Shrine to live before the start of InuYasha. He, Nyanko and a fox spirit end up going to the past with Kagome and getting involved with her adventures. It only has four chapters (so far, but hasn’t been updated since Sept. 2016). If you want to read it, here is the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12152411/1/Spirit-of-the-Jewel.

The second is called ‘Arrow of Truth’ and it is a Fullmetal Alchemist (FMA) and Fate/stay Night crossover. Shirou ends up declining Alaya and not becoming a Counter Guardian. He then meets Truth (from FMA) who says he is a fragment of Edwards from when he went through the Gate of Truth (Think the author was referring to original anime series). Truth then transports him (in Edward’s body) to before the Grail War and he changes things. Fine out what, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12095365/1/Arrow-of-Truth.

The last one (from this author) is ‘Beware of Sith Trolls.’ It’s a three-part story (with only two parts out since Aug. 2016) that’s a Harry Potter and Star Wars crossover (with mentions and meeting Black Wing from Fate’s Gamble by Lupine Horror). It has Vader saving a young Harry Potter (who deaged himself and his a troll) and having him become his apprentice. Chaos ensues, which can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12068640/1/Beware-of-Sith-Trolls.

I discovered that Fruits Basket is finally getting a remade anime with the whole story (YAY!). While doing that I learned of a short (unfinished) sequel about another young girl and the children of the Fruits Basket characters called “Fruits Basket Another.” I read the manga and enjoyed it, really looking forward to the finish and the new anime!

I reread a fic by kb0 called ‘A Friend Indeed.’ It’s a six-chapter story about what would have happened if Ginny would have tried harder to be Harry’s friend after his name comes out the Goblet of Fire. Things change, but most of it’s for the better, right? Find out here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/3822327/1/A-Friend-Indeed.

I also got a new chapter for a story called ‘The Lady of the Flies’ by InsanityIncarnate90. It’s a Worm and Highschool DxD crossover that has Rias reincarnating Taylor after the end of Worm as her Queen. Watch how this changes the DxD universe completely! Here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12586479/1/The-Lady-of-the-Flies. (Might have already talked about this one, realllly need to make that list.)

That’s it for today, see you on the next line tomorrow!

Wednesday

I finished both My Name is Harry Potter and Yo-Ho, Yo-Ho, An Ashikabi’s Life for Me today. I also got caught up on The Gamer (my app didn’t get the new chapters until today <_>). There were also new chapters for Burning Ice, Harry Potter and the Stargate, Flames of the Night Sky, It’s in the Cards, Heroes Assemble! and an omake for Mauling Snarks. A Ultra Friend on PoGo gave me an Ex Raid invite today and I was finally able to catch Deoxys (yay!). I also got some Lucky Pokémon from trades today!

I started rereading a story by an author I haven’t mentioned yet, Phantom1s. It’s called ‘Harry Potter: Archangel’ and it has Harry’s accidental magic transporting him to the Flamels at a young age (to escape from the Dursleys). He grows up with them and ends up meeting Tony Stark and creating a magic Ironman suit called Archangel. He saves a going into fifth year Ginny (remember he’s not been at Hogwarts, to study at least) and things happen from there. I like this fic and the author, but feel he kind of jumps around and has pacing problems. The link to the fic is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6989193/1/Harry-Potter-Archangel.

There was a new chapter for the fic, ‘Organization 13 and a Half’ by Glennt123. It a Kingdom Hearts story that starts before 365/2 Days. It has a sentient Dusk that is the main character who becomes a part of Organization 13. Hasn’t reached 365/2 Days yet, but it is still semi-frequently updating. The story can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12971650/1/Organization-13-and-a-Half.

Lasty, I started rereading another of kb0’s stories, ‘Harry Potter: The Avenger.’ It has Harry not wanting to stay in his world any longer and goes through the Veil (with a trunk full of things) to try and find Sirius. He ends up in New York right before it’s attacked by aliens in the first Avengers movie. He joins the defense and becomes an Avenger. It’s finished (but I still need to read a few more chapters of the seven) and can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10477045/1/Harry-Potter-The-Avenger.

A rerun of last year’s Christmas event on Fate/GO started today. Looking forward to playing through it!

Nothing more today, can’t wait until the Midnight night release of the Let’s Go games tomorrow!

Thursday

I finished Harry Potter: The Avenger and read more Broken Dreams (by ThunderReborn if you’ve forgotten). The only new chapter was from Another Fine Mess. That and playing PoGo, Fate/GO and KHUx are really the only things I did today. Wow, that’s kinda sad …

Anyway, I’m writing this before I head over and get my new Let’s Go games, but I have enough time to talk about another series. This time I’ll talk about “Skip Beat” by Yoshiki Nakamura. The main character, Kyoko Mogami, went to Tokyo with her love Sho to help him while he became an Idol. But when he became famous he got rid of her and she vowed horrible revenge. She decided to get revenge on him by becoming a bigger star than him. The only problem, she left behind love and can’t muster any up to catch people’s eyes.

When she proves to have talent, the director of a company decides to make a “Love-Me” section to help her (and others eventually) find what they’re missing. Watch her work through her trials to get one over on Sho (and who’s this Ren Tsuruga?). I really enjoy this series and need to catch up on it, I’m a bit behind.

I’ll post this now before I head out. See everyone on Monday and hope people who are also getting Let’s Go enjoy it as much as I will!
