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!

A Code Geass Week (Late, but Not Under My Control)

Hello everyone, sorry for being a day late, but my internet was out last night and thus I couldn’t post.  Am I not supposed to post on Fridays?  I’m beginning to think so.  I’ve been continuing to reread Ascension Book One: Bloodline and also reread Code Geass: The Prepared Rebellion V2.  The new chapters this week are: Code Geass: The Prepared Rebellion V2, Mauling Snarks (Mon & Fri), Another Soldier Reporting, Bleach Drabbles, Queen of the Sea, Short Story Drabbles, Burning Ice, Famiglia Drabbles, Pain and Hatred: A Stray Devil’s Tale, Seerking’s Asylum, Heroes Assemble!, By Your Side is Where I Belong, Titanfall, Taylor Varga, Relic of the Future & Gun Bunny.

As I mentioned last time, I went to go see Code Geass: Lelouch of the Re;Surrection movie on Tuesday.  It was awesome, but before I go on –

*Spolier Warning*

For those who haven’t watched either the previous movies (which I did before the movie to know the differences, and I also love the third’s ending song, Re:One) or the series: Lelouch sacrifices himself at the end to take away the world’s hatred.  However, because he had taken his father/uncle’s code in the Thought Elevator he revived: without his memories.   The main difference in the series and the movies is that Shirley survives in the movies.  She takes his body away and gives him to C.C. to help.  She takes his scared and unable to take care of himself body to find another Thought Elevator to get back his memories.

It’s a great movie that allows characters to share their thoughts on him and what he did.  Facing a Geass user who can send her memories into the past if she dies, how will Lelouch beat her?  Will he be able to save Suzaku and Nunnally?  Where will he go now that he’s back?

I really like that he chooses to stay with C.C. after everything she did for him.  I feel bad for Kallen, but C.C. really took care of him while looking out for his body and deserves him in this one.

*End Spoiler Warning*

Also I heard that there is a 10 year plan for the series that I’m looking forward to!  (I also went to go see Detective Pikachu today [Saturday], but I’ll leave that to next time as it wasn’t an original part of this post.)

Moving on, because of the movie I tried looking for Code Geass fics where they watch the series after and couldn’t find one that was finished or updated recently.  The first one I found was The Truth Hurts More by sfaye-chan.  It has C.C. giving Nunnally the DVDs of the series and has all the surviving participants watch them.  It gets through episode 4 and hasn’t been updated since Aug last year.  It’s good, but again not finished.

Next was And It All Comes Out by Fearel.  It has C.C. giving the DVDs to Kallen and she gets everyone together.  It’s also on episode 4, but only halfway through it and it hasn’t been updated since 2016.

Finally, was Entropy by ShadowBlah2.  It’s the longest one, getting through episode 9 and the best one overall in my opinion.  It has Nunnally finding the DVDs (presumably from C’s World) and has everyone watch them, with things devolving as the episodes go on.  It’s funny to watch Suzaku (as Zero) be horrified with so many people knowing his identity and failing to tell everyone to get it over with.  It hasn’t been updated since mid-2017.

I also read another fic called Code Geass: Re by Ignatius Thunderblade.  It has Lelouch going back to his child body and changing things.  He reminds C.C. and eventually Kallen and he changes things slightly but ends up with he and Suzaku switching sides (sort of).  It’s interesting and being currently updated.

Finally, kb0 came out with a new fic called Ginny’s Plan.  It happens when Harry breaks up with her at the end of book 6.  She doesn’t accept it and has a plan to help him when the war.  Only one chapter and it’ll be updated weekly, but it has him going to Grimwald Place instead of Privet Drive and making it his base for the summer.  Looks to be interesting!

That’s it for this week.  Hope everyone has a great week and I really promise to have the next post on 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!

Captain Marvel and the Quest (with Some D.N.Angel info)

Hello those few of you who read my blog! It’s been another week of work and as I promised here’s my thoughts on Captain Marvel.

Spoilers Start

So, it was a good movie. We didn’t know for a long time that Carol had been taken against her will by the Kree and that her power was from absorbing the power from the Tesseract engine, not something the Kree gave her. The fact that the Kree were the bad guys doesn’t surprise me, however the fact the Skrull were not did. Are we not going to have a Skrull invasion for the next saga, because that’s what I was honestly expecting? Since we know there will be more Marvel movies, I don’t know where they’re going to go from here. Guess we’ll find out with Avengers: Endgame. (Though maybe more with the Kree since they say they want Captain Marvel, or at least Ronan the Accuser did [which is actually a title, if you didn’t know])

Now onto Fury, he’s amusing in this, especially with Goose the cat. Which is actually a Flerken, an alien with mouth tentacles that eats bad guys (and the Tesseract). The most amusing thing is that Goose is the reason Fury looses an eye. Now as for why Captain Marvel hasn’t been in any of the other movies and Fury didn’t call her. It’s because she was helping the Skrull find a new home and Fury only wanted to call her if something was really wrong. Her flight name on her plane in a picture is the reason why Fury named The Avenger Initiative as it’s named.

Spoilers End

So I’ve finished Honestly Harry and the Founders Chambers (yeah, I mostly skimmed it. It’s my least favorite of the Honest Harry fics (mostly cause of Ginny, not that she’s bad, just how she’s not really in it). The new chapters this week are: The Dragon’s Knight (Wed, Thurs, Fri), Flameheart (Wed, Thurs, Fri), Melody of Fire (Wed & Thurs), Worm – Waterworks (2 chaps, one’s an interlude), Heroes Assemble! (Now on chapter 100), Celestial Worm, Deku: The Telekinetic Hero, Titanfall & Mauling Snarks.

Before we get to my quest, I also read more Honestly Harry stories. First is a 2nd year Christmas side story called A Very Granger Christmas, where the Honestly Harry universe starts into M territory. Yes, they’re young, but they’re honestly older mentally and the bond is pushing them. They don’t ‘do the deed,’ but they explore. Not bad, but I only skimmed this one as well.

Back to the main story, I started reading the next in the series with is the story of the summer before third year called, Honestly Harry – The Unplottable Discoveries. I like this one better than either of the 2nd year fic, but it continues the M situations (and it will continue like this through the most recent story). Watch as Harry and his bondmates deal with the outcome of their 2nd year and prepare for their 3rd year at Hogwarts.

Back to the quest, the first story this time is, Darkened Wizards. It’s a Harry Potter and D N Angel crossover, with some Naruto at the end. Turns out Emiko Niwa (Daisuke’s mom) is Lily’s twin sister and Petunia remembers her after second year. Sending Harry to her for the summer changes things and a changed Harry and Daisuke come to Hogwarts for their third year. How will Harry’s inclusion into the Niwa family change things? And who’s that with Hiwatari? Unless otherwise stated, all fics from now on are unfinished and last updated in 2012.

Second is A Twist in Fate, a Sailor Moon and Naruto crossover. When Usagi is young, a break in at their home has the Tsukino family moving to Konoha. Usagi trains to become a ninja and befriends Itachi. How will this affect her fate as Sailor Moon and what will happen with Mamoru?

Third is Nozomi of the Sand, a Harry Potter and Naruto crossover. Fem Harry goes with the Dursleys to Suna and befriends Gaara and Temari. Later, looking to escape the wizarding world, she joins the village as a civilian contractor. Watch how her presence changes things.

Following that is a two-chapter story called Let’s Play a Game. It’s a Fullmetal Alchemist and Sailor Moon crossover where Ed and Al are sent to the Sailor Moon Universe by Truth’s sister (AKA the author). Ed is turned into a girl and Al is a cat, will they be able to ship up to Scouts, or will they never get home? Will we ever find out? I honestly doubt it.

Then there’s Aburame Lightning, a Harry Potter and Naruto crossover that actually reaches 19 chapters. It has baby Harry being dropped off in front of the Aburame compound and adopted by the Head. Given bugs, he becomes the Heir and eventually befriends Naruto. How will the wizarding world deal with an heir that controls bugs?

Loki Black is next and it’s a purely Harry Potter story. Sirius wakes up the summer before Harry’s first year after falling through the veil. He’s Harry’ age and decides to join Hogwarts as his own son in order to help Harry. A good four chapters, but would ask for more.

After that is Dark Mage of the Zodiac, a Fairy Tail and Harry Potter crossover, with a nod to Fruits Basket. Harry almost dies, but is sent to Fiore by his magic to save him. He’s found by Zeref, who gives him the ‘Dark’ Zodiac Keys. He joins early on and is a prominent member when Lucy joins. The animal forms from Fruits Basket are the ‘Dark’ Zodiac members.

That’s all I’ll talk about for the quest, but I learned that after 8 years that the author of D.N.Angel is finally finishing the story. They’ve published quite a few chapters now, but I could only really find the first of the newest one’s translated online (which also led me to remember that only the first 13 volumes have been published in America). The new chapter and more later can be found at the Facebook Page – Hand of Time Translations. I’m looking forward to more chapters! Thanks everyone for 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!
